comment Upgrade problem- insufficient room
The problem is, trash and apt cache are not in /boot. You probably have a separate boot partition, which is full, and if that's the case, you'll need to remove old kernels. askubuntu.com/questions/2793/…

comment How to change read-only permission under 501 user?
OSX uses HFS, a proprietary Apple file system, and it's mounted as read only by default. Here is how to mount it read/write: superuser.com/questions/84446/…. duplicate -> askubuntu.com/questions/332315/…

comment I can not install 32 bit windows in a partition which is more than 4G far from the HDD MBR, can I?
That's not the case in my experience. We have a PC with WinXP installed on the second partition about 70GB away from the MBR. Anyway, this is off topic, as has nothing to do with Ubuntu.

Are you sure it's not disabled by a hardware switch? Can you also add the output of rfkill list all.

No. It's .local/share/Trash.

Just don't mount Windows, get rid of /windows and proceed, or quit the installer and start again.

comment Will ubuntu alter my other partitions on my PC
It depends. It may delete a partition if you tell it to, and it may refuse to install in case there are 4 primary partitions already. ... but it's hard to tell without knowing the current partition layout, your level of experties, and exactly what you will do. In short, the question is somewhat on the vague side.

comment Newbie question on what the various cool names like Utopic Unicorn
1. Not much, but the corresponding blog posts of their inventor may do, for example: Utopic, and Trusty. 2. There is no special version for Vbox, just try the one your like or dislike.

comment Can I mix sources from different ubuntu versions?
Using software sources from another release is not supported and not recommended. Many packages may have different versions and dependencies, and may be incompatible with the installed ones. Switching to a supported LTS release is a better idea.

comment Not able to “Allow executing file as program”
I haven't been able to reproduce the problem. Just downloaded blender-2.71-linux-glibc211-x86_64.tar.bz2 from blender.org/download, extracted it, and all the executables were executable by default.
