comment Retrieve file of a deleted partition
@The Evil Phoenix That's strange I managed it last week although I hadn't done anything except the format before I realised what I'd done and had only done a quick format.

comment How do I prevent Firefox from crashing constantly?
Have you tried other browsers, I was just wondering if they do the same. Chromium is a good alternative to try.

comment How to start sensors-applet
I've just tested this software webupd8.org/2011/04/indicator-sensors-displays-cpu.html and it seems to do what you want, just add the ppa then install and run it.

comment How I do a system restore?
It might have been worth doing an apt-get purge on the package that broke your system since this is supposed to remove any settings associated with it.

comment How do I resolve a “low space” error when upgrading?
Do you know what your partition structure is? Do you have boot / and home in different partitions? I'm just wondering if one particular partition is short of space.

comment How to configure and (tv) video recording and pausing?
I agree this might be overkill for the situation you're talking about but it is a massively flexible piece of software and will certainly do what you're asking.

comment What is needed to use Ubuntu as a TV
I've been using mythbuntu for about 5 years in the UK and am very happy with it. It makes an excellent media centre for both recording and watching live. You can download mythtv from the standard repositories but I'd recommend the mythbuntu repos since they are more regularly updated.

comment How to install Windows 7 inside Virtualbox of Ubuntu?
I'm not sure downloading an iso is a legal issue so long as you have a legitimate license for the software. The shiny bit of plastic you install from is not why you give microsoft money, it's the right to use the software which goes with the silly little sticker with the hard to type code.
