comment How to copy data between Virtual machines
@meow ...a bit or a bit too much? :-) When you deal with different operative systems you always have to deal with the two sides of the same problem :(. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd, points are fast and almost simple. The 4th starts to be more complex, but useful in a Linux way (especially the second part). The 5-th point is more for office or specific and/or professional tasks (e.g. I want to run 2 WWW servers on two different virtual machine but I want to share analytic logs maybe on a third machine... so if one machine crashes or is under attack the second will be not...)

comment Changed account setting to not require password on login and now I cannot login
Try to follow this link to start in single user mode and from there set passwd yourusername. Then restart. It can be useful this blog too. As root you can always force a new password for users. Eventually to became root you can try from single user mode: sudo passwd yourusername or sudo /bin/bash. (With the second you have a shell as root). Remember root user can do everything in linux: solve problem or make them more big ;) Let us know...

You can find hints in How to run scripts on start up? or in How to run a shell script at startup.

comment How can I run a simple rsync shell script at boot with root?
Did you put #!/bin/sh or #!/bin/bash as first line of the script? Try in any case to specify the full path /usr/bin/rsync in the script.

Retagged. If the script have to be executed at reboot is not related with gnome or kde...

comment Package skype is not available
@GunnarHjalmarsson You remove I add it again :-) I don't know if both links will survive in future: it's possible to use archive.canonical.com instead of archive.canonical.com/ubuntu . At present time both are ok, for the future we cannot say.

comment Package skype is not available
@GunnarHjalmarsson ...but it works even with http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ ;-) I don't know which one is the symbolic link... About Canonical Partners vs PPA right and proper: I suppose the original post came from a time in which skype was not yet in the number of the Canonical Partners but still a lone ranger out of the Microsoft realm. :-)

comment Shell script exits without evaluating if condition
It ($? and exit code) exists and it is 0. If different (it can be for many reasons) is a number different from 0. See man bash or Bash Exit Codes With Special Meanings.
