comment Cannot install GStreamer (pycompile: not found)
If you found a solution you should post it as an answer and accept it, not as a edit to the question. Anyway Elementary is off-topic here as it is not an official Ubuntu flavor.

Is your internet connection working?. Have your tried to change your download mirror (check the 11 upvotes answer to this question: askubuntu.com/questions/208037/…)?

No, dropbox doesn't needs Matlab to install. There is something else going on. Try to uninstall Matlab.

comment Setup Windows 7 Virtualbox notifications in host Ubuntu
Not really, at least without serious amounts of hacking. You could write a windows program that detect that activity and sends a warning to a Linux program through the network or other method.

You can use external actions to force some kind of poor man Glade integration into Pycharm.

comment Why do I need to restart Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for my networking scripts to work?
If you are using sudo to invoke updateConfigurations you don't need to put sudo in every line there. Could it be that network-manager is now controlling your network?. Try to restart it too.

comment Use Zentyal on Virtualbox with Mac Mini host… Crazy?
I see. If performance is important, kvm (virtualizaing linux on linux with it is incredible fast) or containers (linuxcontainers.org) are better options. Otherwise going with the better known solution to you (OS/X+Virtualbox or whatever) makes a lot of sense.

comment Use Zentyal on Virtualbox with Mac Mini host… Crazy?
If you want to keep technical knowledge to a minimum then the only thing that make sense to me is to install Linux into bare metal. You will need to manage a Linux computer in every case (virtual or real), but you add the problems, maintenance, updates, etc... of both the host OS and the VM if you use something like virtualbox or kvm.

comment Possible to let virtualbox guest OS to use some device directly?
VirtualBox supports pci-passthoug (virtualbox.org/manual/ch09.html#pcipassthrough), but you can't use it "when Ubuntu encounters the above problem", you either pass the card to the Virtual Machine or you don't at VM startup.
