comment How to verify zswap running?
Just preference. They both work fine, but I prefer the cleaner output of mine.

comment How to verify zswap running?
To add to this, you can check if zswap is actually doing anything with this command (zswap won't actually kick in until your system starts swapping): sudo sh -c 'cd /sys/kernel/debug/zswap; grep . *'

comment FGLRX won't install: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages
No, what they did is they installed the HWE (hardware enablement) stack by default in the latest builds, but it seems the latest HWE stack wasn't fully ready as it causes conflicts with a handful of other packages. Until it's fixed, removing the HWE stack fixes the conflicts.

comment Is it safe to remove lubuntu-desktop?
Couldn't agree more. It's always good to look at what's being uninstalled, or you run the danger of ending up like this person: apt-get -f install simply removed all the ubuntu packages and destroyed the system

comment Ubuntu Additional Drivers won't install flgrx
I'm pretty sure Sangimed is correct. If you read the bug report, you will see that new installations of 14.04.2 will be unable to install fglrx. See here for a fix: askubuntu.com/a/599262/18665

comment How to change Thunderbird's display time to 24h format?
Only if you pick a locale with a different date format. But a good point nonetheless. I've updated my answer.

comment How to Play or convert a QCP file to MP3
@Adobe ffmpeg isn't dead. It's an active project, it's just somebody at Ubuntu decided to switch to avconv instead: stackoverflow.com/a/9477756/399105

comment WebEx desktop sharing on 64-bit Ubuntu
@balachmar Someone pointed out a package conflict with the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of icedtea-7-plugin, so I've updated my instructions. Not sure if it will help in your case, but can't hurt to try.

comment How can I remove the drm from an ePub file?
This worked for me: winetricks adobe_diged. It installs ADE 1.7.2 into WINEPREFIX ~/.local/share/wineprefixes/adobe_diged

@jmend I have to create a separate comment so you get notified (meta.stackexchange.com/a/45296/206677), but read my previous comment

comment WebEx desktop sharing on 64-bit Ubuntu
@balachmar I just tested these same exact steps on Ubuntu 14.04, and they worked fine. It's very important you install the exact packages as listed. I tried with many other combinations, and none of them worked. If you don't have the exact packages installed, WebEx will work but desktop sharing will not work.

comment Concatenating several .mp3 files into one .mp3
Yeah, I used avconv for a while, but then I needed some features that ffmpeg had and avconv didn't, and I haven't used it since. These days it feels like a waste of time checking to see if avconv has the features I need when I already know ffmpeg does.

comment Concatenating several .mp3 files into one .mp3
This worked better for me, because it handles mp3s with spaces in the filename: find . -maxdepth 1 -iname '*.mp3' -print0 | sort -z | xargs -0 mp3wrap output.mp3
