comment Ubuntu 12.04 LTS login loop
@Narida I don't see any screens about those commands. Did you try all of the commands, in the correct order? If they didn't work, we need to know exactly what happened.

comment How to see list of ASCII code on the terminal
If you have ascii installed, you'll get a different man page. The command would have to be man 7 ascii.

comment Making my first bash script, can't get the cd command to 'stick.'
The $@ should be quoted in case any of the original terms contain spaces. Hence it should be ls "$@" (or with best practice ls "${@}").

comment MD5 hash for ubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso
@ElderGeek The link is for 14.04, not for 14.04.1. I found the Lubuntu hashes with the help of Google. I also found two relevant bug reports, one for Ubuntu and one for Lubuntu.

Do you know where we can find MD5 sums for other distros such as Lubuntu?

comment MTP with Android phone unreliable on 14.04
As explained in my post, I have already done this, with the exception of /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules — because that file already contains the entry. However, that entry also has the phrases MODE="660" and GROUP="audio". Would that make a difference? Should I remove them? Why would the connection sometimes work and other times not?

comment How to update LibreOffice from 4.2 to 4.3 in ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS?
I have done this for years, and it works well. You may want to add instructions for how to download the help package as well, although in my experience the download page always offers both the relevant language pack and the help pack. The main package must be installed first, followed by the language pack (if not US English), followed by the help pack.

In my experience, ~/.bash_logout and /etc/bash.bash_logout do not work. :(

comment How to write superscript characters in gedit?
One thing you omitted was how to get that plugin. You need to install gedit-plugins; you can do this from Ubuntu Software Centre, Synaptic Package Manager, or via the CLI with sudo apt install gedit-plugins (prior to 14.04 use apt-get instead of apt).

@saiarcot895, unfortunately not. I have tried using sudo blkid both from my normal session and from a Live USB, but it seems that no UUID is available for an encrypted partition.
