comment DisplayLink USB 3.0 Not working on Ubuntu 14.04LTS
I am now using two docking stations (HP Port Replicator and Dell D3100 Docking Station) on a Dell Precision M4500 laptop at the same time; each has a display attached; both displays work, thanks to DisplayLink's driver for Ubuntu 14.04, and I can position them with the standard System Settings ... -> Displays widget. 3D acceleration probably won't work, but I don't need that right now. Not that the laptop doesn't support USB 3.0 so I don't know if it works with USB 3.0.

It should be updated again: displaylink.com/for-business/common_questions.php mentions support for Ubuntu 14.04, linking to a package at displaylink.com/downloads/ubuntu.php

comment 13.10 XRDP problem with gnome-fallback
It was not fixed in 14.04. Perhaps this is due to my upgrading from12.04. I will try it with a fresh install ... one day.

comment 13.10 XRDP problem with gnome-fallback
This question should be reopened. The problem is not specific to a development version of Ubuntu - I have it right now with 14.04.

comment How to set Ubuntu to synchronize my clock with a time server?
Why use at? And if you're going to automatically run ntpdate, why not just install the ntp service?

comment Ubuntu 14 Server and Xrdp
How on earth can this question be off topic?? Yes, I have this issue, too, with the released 14.04.

By the way, xrdp runs a VNC server.

Great list - is there an 'official' overview of alternatives somewhere?
