comment How to re-enable the systray (indicator panel) after latest updates
Thank you. This is significantly better than nothing, although I wish that we could still use the systray panel. Shuttleworth has no idea of the problems that he has caused.

On my system, the command lsacl does not exist. Where did you get it?

comment Case sensitivity in shell scripting
Following on from this, instead of [0-9] you can use [[:digit:]]. You can find more examples in man grep, or Google posix character classes.

comment Print a group of lines if they contain specific strings
Only in Linux (and Unix) can you provide such a simple one-line solution! Amazing.

comment Is it safer to install two OSes on different hard drives or just different partitions?
ext4fsd should read ext2fsd. As it doesn't fully support ext4, I would always use ext2fsd in read-only mode to prevent accidental corruption.

comment Why doesn't Ubuntu remove old kernels automatically?
I agree that Ubuntu should not remove old kernels automatically. I once had a situation where newer kernels caused a serious problem with some software; until that problem was fixed, I had to retain the oldest kernel that worked. Naturally, I avoided apt-get autoremove.

comment Difference between ls -l and ll?
A small point: you may want to consider replacing lowercase a with uppercase A. This will avoid listing . and .., which are usually not useful. Hence, ls -Al or alias ll='ls -Al'. If you prefer long options, this is equivalent to ls -l --almost-all.

comment Want to disable built-in screen by default
I used to have your problem. As I no longer have the laptop and therefore cannot test this, I'm putting this as a comment rather than as an answer. Go to System Settings > Screen Display. Both screens will be displayed in the GUI. Select the one that doesn't work and turn it off. You can also set the resolution for your attached monitor. The settings take effect only after logging on, so you may need to log out and in again (or reboot). Let me know if it works.

Thanks, but my 14.04 was a clean installation.
