comment can't run executables “.x86” on ubuntu 14.04
@Swagmaster: That error means the file doesn't exist. You have to use the right filename, and it is case sensitive. You can't write "Home" if it's called "home". Enter the first letters and press tab, the system will autocomplete the filename for you.

comment How to make a system monitoring in ubuntu-touch?
Well, technically, it is, although I forgot about the read-only root fs at the time of writing. top is nice enough though.

comment sharing internet between network interfaces
@rubo77: I don't think that should be a problem. It uses a router and a dhcp server, pretty much like your wireless router at home.

comment ubuntu 14.04 package install fail (apt-get install error)
The install script for SQL Alchemy is trying to configure a database for you, adding tables to hold data. However, those tables already exists in the database. So you can probably just drop the "instances" table, if you don't have anything important in it.

comment Ubuntu Software Centre can't connect to the internet. 13.04
Ubuntu 13.04 was a short-term release that's no longer supported. You should upgrade to 14.04LTS, which will be supported until April 2019. Non-LTS versions are only supported for 9 months. Ubuntu 13.04 has not received any security updates since January 2014.

It's not easy to understand what you're trying to do. Please edit your question and elaborate.

comment Recover data from external hard disk after 'mkntfs' command in Ubuntu
You should edit that answer to provide more details. What does "various recovery software" mean? The more details you add, the more likely it is that someone can add something useful.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 deleted www directory from /var/www and need to restore it
Well, if he wants to reproduce the original layout, I think it should include /var/www/html. Not a big deal by any means, I just thought I'd mention it.

comment Allow sudo in default guest account
@GunnarHjalmarsson: Thanks. Yes, what I'm thinking, is that it might be possible to simply add a --reflink=auto to the skel-part of /usr/sbin/guest-account. Then, if you're using btrfs, you'll just get a CoW-ed copy of /etc/guest-session/skel. So in this case, you'd get a clean PlayOnLinux environment at each login. Should actually be even faster than it is today because of --reflink. But I want to test it before I recommend it. It's also possible that it might be better to use an overlayfs because that wouldn't require btrfs. But I'm not that familiar with overlayfs yet.

comment Removing Ubuntu without CD
This is now a question about how to install Windows and hence out of scope for this site.

Aren't we supposed to have stuff in /var/www/html now?

comment Allow sudo in default guest account
It's an interesting challenge. I have a few ideas that I'll try out during the weekend if I get time. They should work very well, but I'll have to read up on how guest accounts are made in newer versions.

comment Documentviewer as standard
At the bottom of the dialog, there is a very wide button labeled something like "Show other applications"? If you click it, you should get a long list. One of them should be Documentviewer.

comment Documentviewer as standard
You tried to edit my answer in order to reply. Please use comments instead. I didn't understand why you can't run Documentviewer. Are you unable to run it from the Dash?

comment Allow sudo in default guest account
You might want to have a look at overlayfs and reflinked directories. Each user should have a completely separate home directory with their own wine prefix.

comment Running Multiple desktops
Perhaps you need to install drivers for your graphics card. Gnome uses Metacity or Mutter, whereas Unity uses Compiz. These have very different requirements, so one might work and the other not. That's usually fixed if you install the proprietary drivers though.

comment Wine Windows program loader issue with LTpowerCAD2 installation in power
Sorry, but we can't support individual wine applications here. That's way out of scope.

comment Ubuntu is taking long time to boot
It seems to spend large amounts of time setting up your wlan. Try deactivating it and see if that helps? If it does, you can configure it to not start until you login. But of course, you'll want to fix the real issue.
