comment Can't install drivers for my Broadcom 43142
Unfortunately, we do not support Linux Mint here - it's Ubuntu and official derivatives only. Should you choose Ubuntu in the future, please do not hesitate to come back.

comment Is there any way to get the Ubuntu tablet interface on an Intel powered 2-in-1 machine?
I don't think there was such a promise for 14.10. Convergence is planned for 15.10 or even 16.04, but you could try the next ISO now.

comment How to Fix Read Only 'MSDOS' SD Card?
So, do you still get the same "Disk write-protected" error? Does the ext4 partition mount? What are the outputs of mount and dmesg | tail?

"Disk write-protected" usually means you need to flip a write protection switch on the card itself.

comment intel wifi link 5100 AGN not working in 14.04
Some Intel wireless cards are notoriously problematic, despite their supposed openness. Of the top of my head, Intel 4965 AGN, and Intel 5100 AGN come to mind. Those cards have not been working reliably for many years now, with Intel neither acknowledging the problem, nor able/willing to provide fixes. If the workarounds posted here and elsewhere do not help, there isn't much you can do. If possible, I'd recommend replacing the card.

comment Can't update kernel version because dpkg has an error everytime
Not quite sure what you mean by "Reset it and retried", but it's clear you do not have the default install of Ubuntu 14.04, at least as far as the kernel version goes. You might want to find out who customized and for what reason.

comment Can't update kernel version because dpkg has an error everytime
Perhaps it is a better idea to stay with the default 3.13 kernel for Ubuntu 14.04. Besides, I am not sure how installing 3.8 is an update to 3.13.

comment how to install skype/ viber on ubuntu touch?
Skype and Viber are proprietary applications. Before they can be installed, you'll need to convince the vendors to provide them for Ubuntu touch.

comment How can I use Kernel 3.19 in 14.04 now?
One way to do it is get the 3.19 packages from this PPA, and install them manually with dpkg -i. I don't know if this is the most (or the second/third most) trouble free way, but it is something to try.
