comment How to clear the Ubuntu launcher history
Hmm. Interesting. Perhaps you haven't updated the desktop database? Or perhaps the application just uses the same desktop file for some reason. Try running sudo update-desktop-database.

comment Desktop-Problems after system update on 29th November 2014
Yes, everything that is related to a user is stored in the users home directory. That's every personal file and every setting for every application. You can easily replace Ubuntu with another version of Ubuntu without having to reconfigure your stuff afterwards. Just keep /home untouched.

Better to simply do a database lookup using dpkg -L.

Please edit your question to provide more details. "I got some kinda thing asking for stuff" isn't really a good description.

comment how to completely uninstall everything from ubuntu 14.10
You could make one though, by looking at all dependencies for ubuntu-desktop and purging any package that is not necessary for an Ubuntu Desktop system.

Try booting with the older kernel. It might be a driver issue. You can choose one from the boot menu.

comment upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04 server edition
What's the problem? Press enter, then you should boot. When you've confirmed that this works as it should, then you follow the instructions in the screenshot you provided.

comment Ubuntu trying to access email account
Please edit your question to provide more details. It sounds like a 2FA issue, but it's difficult to be sure based on your question.

comment Saved the Ubuntu installation file on a USB, now none of my computers read the USB
Can you edit your question to provide more details on how you copied the installation files to your memory stick? Copying the iso-file is not enough. Also, boot options are different on different PCs. What exactly is it you want to undo?

I think you can use DevilsPie for all of that.

comment tried to change home folder location, now can't log in
You probably can't login to your desktop because you don't have access to your home directory. use Ctrl+alt+f1, log in with your user. Then you should be able to do "sudo adduser tempuser", then do "sudo adduser tempuser sudo". You'll now have a user "tempuser" that has sudo access. You can use this to make it easier to fix your primary user.

comment Virtualhost document root access previous folder
There should never be a directory below the root, seen from within that directory structure. We're talking about the "/" directory. There is no parent.

comment Virtualhost document root access previous folder
You could always create a link to it from banking if you can't move it. I guess a relative symbolic link would be best, in case you move your website later.

Make /var/www/banking the DocumentRoot?

Do you mean "parent folder" rather than "previous folder"?

comment Do I need to upgrade only the RAM for making Ubuntu's virtual machine quick and smooth as OS X at the same time?
Well, I use Ubuntu guests with 2GB RAM for that type of thing with no issue. If you think it's slow, then it's more likely to do with GPU than CPU. Perhaps you'd like to try using a different desktop than Unity.

comment Why does Ubuntu freeze when connecting HDMI?
Sounds like this should be filed as a bug report rather than as a question. Obviously, Ubuntu is not designed to crash if you connect a monitor. File it on Launchpad.net
