comment How to retain LCD brightness after reboot
With Fedora 20 I can use the brightness keys on the laptop and then on reboot the computer starts at the previous brightness. I suspect that this would not work in that manner.

comment Not able to connect to Vmware ubuntu using Putty in Windows 7
I am not clear on the parts and components of this question. Are there three machines: Windows Host, Ubuntu VMWare guest, and some other server or is this just connectivity between your Windows host and your VMware Ubuntu guest?
