comment Shared Dropbox between Windows and Ubuntu has to re-index every time
Given the time that it takes I suspect that it means it will calculate a hash for each file and compare it with the online version.

comment Ubuntu 14.10 VirtualBox guest doesn't get IP from DHCP
Are you using VirtualBox from the Ubuntu repos or from the VirtualBox?. For me, Oracle versions usually run better, YMMV.

comment Can I use my Virtualbox VMs on ubuntu
It's way easier to export the machines than to copy files around. If you just copy files you will need to edit the xml files as there are routes hard coded on then that will change from Windows to Ubuntu, including paths to the hard disk, external media and shared folders. BTW he will need to reconfigure all his shared folders.

comment Unable to decrypt disk on normal Lubuntu boot
Are you sure that it is not taking your input?. In Unix-like-world passwords are not usually echoed to the screen in any way, not even with circles or similar character (at least in console mode), people coming from other systems usually expect some kind of feedback. Have you tried just to type your password and hit enter?

comment How to start IPython with sudo
Totally unrelated but you should probably be using primusrun, not optirun in a modern environment.

comment How do i update server version without losing data?
More than an update this will be a downgrade. Server version is lighter than desktop and uses less packages. If you are a novice you are probably doing the right thing starting with the desktop version.
