comment Copy/cut and paste sometimes doesn't work on Nautilus
Fixes are released as updates in Ubuntu. If you want to report this issue to the developers, you should do so on Launchpad.net. Software development is beyond the scope for this site. It's more of a Q and A site.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty doesn't utilize hot corners after rebooting
This settings in in normal System Settings as well. Have you tried adjusting it there? Otherwise, it might be a bug. In that case, you should report it on Launchpad.net.

Gnome Shell is not provided by Ubuntu 13.10 by any default. Please provide more details.

comment upgraded to 14.04 from 13.10 and it made my internet slow
That is obviously not a feature of Ubuntu, but some kind of technical glitch. Based on the information you provide, it's impossible to even speculate. In the heading, internet is slow. In the text, computer is slow. You should try to provide some information. Otherwise, it'll just be wild guesses, like "your internet provider might have throttled your connection because you've downloaded too much". Millions of possibilities.

comment Trying to load 14.04
Provide more details. That looks like a completely normal command prompt.

comment Installed Xubuntu on XP system but cannot boot it
It's the same operating system, but with a different desktop environment. So yes, installing them and bootloading, etc, is identical.

comment Download folders from Ubuntu 1
It's available here. I don't know what to tell you. In any case, they will provide you with tools to extract your data.

comment How do I get my windows phone to recognize my media?
Check your phone settings for USB connections. It should be set to use MTP rather than identifying as external storage.

comment PowerBook Clean Install of Ubuntu
You can't use the normal Ubuntu images to install on a PowerBook. The Ubuntu mac+amd64 image will only support modern Macs. If this is what you've tried to do, you may want to have a look at these links: wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuOnMac and wiki.ubuntu.com/PowerPCFAQ

comment Dual-Boot Windows 8.1 & Ubuntu 13.10. “Can't find /boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod”
I don't know what the cause of this is. But you should use a 64bit Ubuntu and you should disable Windows' fast boot if you want to be able to use the NTFS filesystems in Ubuntu. As long as you don't shutdown Windows properly, you'll have problems with its filesystems.

comment problem with installing ubuntu 13.10 in latest edtion laptops
It sounds to me like you might need to install some drivers. You might want to just try 14.04LTS. It might have your drivers built-in.

comment Installing Vesta Control Panel failed
Then perhaps they don't support 64bit or something. You really should ask them. It's not an Ubuntu issue. However, apt-get update isn't supposed to install upgrades. It simply updates the database in order to let Ubuntu know what's available. Try installing the package again.

comment Using DVD player with Ubuntu 12.04
Did you just install the package or did you run the program as well?

comment Proper permissions on web directory
Sorry. I meant to say g+s. The option means something very different for users rather than groups. You want it for groups.

comment Proper permissions on web directory
Should do the trick, I think. You might want to make it recursive though.

comment How to enable Altera USB-blaster connection after upgrading to Ubuntu 12.04?
Ubuntu 12.04 means it is the version of Ubuntu that was released in April 2012. Ubuntu 12.10 means it is the version that was released in October 2012. They're different versions. There is no Ubuntu Version 12.

comment How to log in using the TTY?
You can log into recovery mode and reset your password if you want to. From there you can also create a new user if you need to. In other words, this is no disaster at all.

comment How to log in using the TTY?
Remember that you have to enter it precisely how it's written. If it's "seventen", you cannot enter "SevenTen".
