comment Razer BlackWidow - Ubuntu not Recognizing Audio jacks
That's cause the connectors are passive. It should be the same as plugging in a pair of headphones or a speaker. If your audio out is broken, how do you expect it to work?

comment Razer BlackWidow - Ubuntu not Recognizing Audio jacks
To be honest, this is a result of a misunderstanding of what the additional ports on the BW do. All they did was essentially add in passive audio and USB extenders to the keyboard so you don't need to reach over to the back, or to the top to get access to a USB or audio port. Your keyboard ports won't work if the ports they are plugged into don't work. Tho... a fancy keyboard with a good built in soundcard sounds cool, if super super niche.

comment What does this 'apt-get remove' instruction do?
"I found it on internet so I copied it and pasted it into terminal" NO NO NO NO NO. You'll end up doing horrible things by accident. Running code you don't understand results in terrible things like nuking your system, and puppies being kicked.

heh, just worked it out a moment ago. Will select this as the correct answer as soon as the system allows me.

comment I want to move /run/shm to my /home directory
That's a REALLY wierd partition layout, and fairly badly planned. There's little reason to split off non critical OS stuff (or for that matter anything but /home and maybe /etc). IMO splitting up a system into different mountpoints is really a relic of tiny old drives.

Some essential details would be nice - which specific version of ubuntu? What's your video matrix connected to your TV via? What is a video matrix? Does it need drivers?

comment Circular references abound on Ubuntu software, other Ubuntu.com pages
I'd also add your question is cut off, and AU's essentially community support, rather than something owned/run by canonical proper.

comment How do I increase the total size of my storage devices?
It makes sense to reuse as much as they can.That however doesn't include the storage. They use (roughly) the same boards and controllers, storage chips or hard drives of the correct size, and if needed, firmware specific to the parts they chose to use.

While it would be nice to assume SO will remain unchanged in perpetuity, should the other question/answer be deleted for whatever reason, your answer becomes useless. All content on SE is creative commons w/attribution licenced, so you may consider borrowing from and attributing in order to post a more complete answer.

comment Install packages to Ubuntu
I'd also add these are different versions, and have distinct repos, and mixing them is a VERY bad idea

comment What happened to ChmSee in 14.04?
The why's are unanswerable. I suspect this question would be a lot more awesome if you focused on "How do I get this useful app back" aspect of things.

comment ubuntu on dell Latitude C800
I hate to say this, but something like slackware or vector linux light (I used to run it on a similar laptop years ago) might be a good option here.

comment Why the need for a reboot with new HDD dock?
You don't always have automounting of drives - have you made sure it turned up on /dev, and have you tried mounting it manually?

comment How to protect from cloning?
Physical security. The moment someone has physical access to your system, they can do anything. Just lock it up.
