comment Can I automatically deactivate my touchpad when a USB-mouse is connected?
That tool does not seem to work for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Gnome shell tested.

Of course it is. This question wouldn't have been asked, if the other question were about 2 years older. So this question is not a duplicate of the new one. But yes, I can see that the answers to the new question are much more exhaustive, so I would be fine with other ways to link. But flagging this as duplicate makes me appear to be to stupid to look for similar questions before posting.

Nope, the old question is never a duplicate of the new one, but feel free to mark that other one as a duplicate of mine.

comment How to remove a repository?
No, I want to PURGE it. This source has installed some mesa stuff, that is too new and so I can't install other stuff from canonicals repositories any more because of strict version constraints. That repository in question was preconfigured by the laptops manufacturer and I realized this problem far too late. Simply removing or deactivating this repository does not work, since apt keeps all the stuff that was already installed from that repo.

comment Auto-connect to hidden wireless without elevating privelege
I don't think, that a hint about the security risks is an answer to the question above! There are some cases in which the user has no privileges to change the network itself. In my case the wifi of my university has a hidden SSID and I have to bother with it. So a real answer how one can connect to a hidden wifi would be really helpful. My android tablet connects without problems, the windows pcs of the other students are connecting right after the user logged in, but for every single linux pc we have, we have to connect to that network manually, every time we sign in.
