comment Help managing ubuntu 14.04 partition size
120 GB is on the small side to share with a windows partition. My bare-bones Windows7 is over 40GB.

"Pages I visited before" are you sure this is Evince, not Firefox javascript viewer?

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 Problem installing windows after ubuntu
Your language is fine, your description of your problem is not. It is very hard to tell from your question what your situation is. All I get is that Windows fails to install; which makes it off topic for AskUbuntu.

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.

comment Ubuntu on low performance laptop
I'm running a regular Gnome3 on a laptop from 2006 (Thinkpad T60). It runs beautifully with an SSD drive and a little extra RAM. If you have those options available to you, this will not only make it run, but be zippy too. Of course heavy games are out of the question.

comment How to add a second hard drive to an already installed Xubuntu 14.04?
@jart It would be very bad if you are root. That's why you need the sudo and gksudo, so you can assume the role or root for a short while. Like I said, you might want to ask a new question about how to link this to say your Documents folder. Happy to help, you're most welcom.

comment How to add a second hard drive to an already installed Xubuntu 14.04?
@jart no the free space is now only available to the directory /media/bigdata, anything in that directory will use the new drive. You might want to ask a new question on how to use that directory in the most convenient way. It would include symbolic links. If you can't put stuff in /media/bigdata you will have to look for examples of chown (change owner). It might be that the root user is the owner of that directory.

Formatting, removing the braces on UUID.

I see I dont have enough rep to get auto approved on edits. The last line in fstab should read UUID=1579e689-3965-47db-83a7-665cceeb6aff /media/bigdata ext4 defaults

I edited your post. You had a few extra characters in there. Change your fstab accordingly and try mount again.

@jart You may have messed up the UUID. Can you add the contents of fstab to your question?
