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).

comment Swap not availlable
@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.

comment Swap not availlable
I don't know the command cfdisk. I could use gparted to reformat the swap partition. However, what you propose will create a non-encrypted swap, which is not recommended when using encrypted folders.

comment Compiz extra animations download Ubuntu 14.04 not working ( burning animations ETC)
I have the same problem. The compiz-plugins-extra seems to be a dummy transitional package.

comment How can I create a wget GUI with multiple progress bars?
+1 for yad; it's a great package. Be aware that --notification on yad will not work on Ubuntu 13.04 and later because of bug 1305835 and bug 1119420 (please follow the links and vote for the bugs).

comment Where did this zram swap come from?
zram is in fact a useful tool, so I recommend that you keep it. It is most effective on systems with low RAM; e.g. Lubuntu uses it.

comment Can sudo be reinstalled after being removed?
I understand that sudo (with its relatives gksudo and gksu, which are not quite the same as each other despite what people will tell you) is being replaced by pkexec. I have read that sudo will not be present in future versions of Ubuntu, though I don't know if that is correct. When pkexec replaces sudo, I don't know what will replace gksudo.
