comment How to clean the print heads of my HP printer?
nope, they have a print roller. And if they get dirty, you generally just swap the whole unit I think

comment Couldn't install inside Windows 8
It might help to mention what sort of system it is - did it come with windows 8 preinstalled, or did you install it yourself?

comment Couldn't install inside Windows 8
"buy a key" no. Secureboot may be an issue here, but that can be turned off in the bios or otherwise circumvented at the user level bu design.

comment How to make a program appear on the desktop like conky?
not quite what you're looking for, but running guake or yakuake might work quite well for similar purposes - they are drop down, 'quake' style terminals

comment Can Ubuntu repair windows 7 that won't boot?
You could, alternatively download a copy of windows 7 from the links here on superuser and try to fix it from the tools windows has. This might mess up your ubuntu install but back up first

comment Can Mal/JavaJar-B infect an Ubuntu/Linux OS?
I do believe that java exploits are cross platform by nature - though they are often used to get OS specific payloads into a system. As for "isolating stuff off the internet" - basically, the simplest way to keep something you are paranoid about getting stolen is to put it on a system thats not connected to the internet - the military, for example runs systems on an internal network. Network monitoring involves something like an IDS that keeps track of network traffic, and alerts you to anything odd.

comment Can Mal/JavaJar-B infect an Ubuntu/Linux OS?
A truely paranoid user wouldn't run java outside a secure, disposable VM, isolated from the main system. I'd also note these were suprisingly targetted attacks, possibly done by well equipped state sponsored sources.

comment Install drivers
"Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed." - looks like your kernel source package wasn't installed

comment problems with openvpn
Hugely minor point but don't you mean /etc/openvpn/server.conf ? I seem to think the / in front is important

comment Install drivers
I think you linked me the 'internal' dropbox link - try shoving it in the public folder and using that, or use some flavour of pastebin.
