comment Why doesn't Ubuntu remove old kernels automatically?
This script is potentially dangerous: when I do a system update which installs a new kernel, then run this script before rebooting, the new kernel will be removed instead of the old one. I don't want to say it's a bad script, just that one has to be careful when to call it.

comment Ctrl+Alt+[Left/Right] not working in Ubuntu in VMWare
According to the help text in the VMWare settings dialog, you can also use Ctrl-Alt-Space Ctrl-Alt-Left to send Ctrl-Alt-Left to the guest.

comment VMWare Workstation 9.0.2 for Linux build 1031769. Failed to execute child process “@@BINARY@@”
The %F is part of the .desktop file specification: standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/latest/…. So that's not your problem.

The files you found are just the installer scripts that should replace @@BINARY@@ with real values.

Looks like a bug in the installer. Try to grep -r "@@BINARY@@" /etc/ /usr/bin (I'm not sure where VMWare Workstation is installed). This should show you the file that has the string in it. Then you can edit and fix it, and submit a bug report.

comment Issue Mounting NAS
I don't think NFS supports giving a username/password. The access control is done on the server, which specifies which IP addresses to allow mounting an exported directory

comment Issue Mounting NAS
Try adding the filesystem type to the command line: -t nfs. nfs is not supported by the normal mount command.
