comment How can i open SDM.pkg and .sdx files on Ubuntu?
wine seems to be borked for running msiexec at the moment. A bug fix has been issued for the debian repos, none for the ubuntu repos. Thanks for the VW tip, this seems to be the most stable solution.

I have the same problem. If I switch from the X tty, e.g. [Ctrl]+[Alt]+6 and then switch back [Ctrl]+[Alt]+7, I can login without problem.

comment software recommendation to enable viewing of Windows format picture images in Ubuntu
A useful utility is the file utility. It will tell you the format of your image files if the are in a reasonably common format. Try something like file /media/user/CD/imagefilename.

Can you ping local machines? Who is delivering DNS-services on your network?

comment SFTP to local ubuntu server crashes network
A big problem with solving this is your statement -"My entire LAN crashes, and I have to reboot the router.". This is pretty much impossible. For instance -Does the wireless signal on your Macbook disappear? What about the LEDs on the back of your router?

comment Ubuntu on low performance laptop
NewEgg touts a 60G SSD for $50, a 120G is about $70. Laptop RAM might be in that range.
