comment Is there any command to minimize windows?
in future, just give the complete answer at once in a case like this. The original answer came across as though it wasn't really answering the question.

This only covers showing the desktop, and does not cover the specifics of the question.

comment What is SkypeWebPlugin.pkg and why is it required?
Did you attempt to install Skype from the Skype website using a Mac pkg? That's not the way to install it on Ubuntu.

comment Ubuntu booting slowly
Usually boot speed issues come from having a lot of software installed (in my experience) or having an installation for an extended period of time (especially if you've upgraded between versions). How long have you been running this installation and did you install a lot of software? The master interrupt issue might be a separate issue.

comment How to apply Mac like 'labels' on nautilus?
@kleinfreund my apologies. This is an old answer. Marlin is no longer developed, and Patheon Files is only available on supported versions of Ubuntu. You have to check the PPA to see which one.

comment How to install Cuda correctly on Ubuntu 15.10?
@dadexix86 thanks! I did some further reading and found out that not only are you correct, but my card is useless for what I wanted it for anyway :(. Still have to replace it.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it turns out that I had the wrong driver, AND it also turns out that Blender dropped support for cards this age :(. A lose lose situation.

comment No login screen on startup, works after logging in and logging out again
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the person who had the issue has since had no complaints and it makes no sense at this point worrying over it. Systemd is problematic, but also not worth my time and effort to figure out.

comment How do I set Windows programs to open with Wine as opposed to Mono?
I forgot to mention, wine doesn't show up in the list and there seems to be no way to add it.
