comment What ports should I open for listen and/or transmit in my firewall to keep internet ok?
@Cestarian If you still can't browse after enabling outgoing traffic on the ports above you may have other issues. Do you have a static IP? or did you get an auto config IP? You may need to enable the DHCP ports to get the IP address configured. This will be bi-directional traffic. Alternatively, assign a static IP address.

comment How can I find out which application/service is filling up /var/log so MASSIVELY?
How old are the oldest entries; if the file isn't rotated often it will grow huge. Look at the end of file not the start, that is where issues are likely. Look at message, syslog, or kern.log. These will likely be mostly the same and should indicate what is logging so much. Check your syslog settings, this kind of growth is unusual unless something strange is happening. Verify you have logrotate installed and working.

comment IPv6 network is unreachable. until reboot
@TD_Nijboer If you have the original two as well as a new one, try removing the new one. I have found I often need to add or alter options when manually configuring IPv6. There is a option listed on the ip man page to force add a route that does not seem to be reachable. Default routing is normally done via an fe80:: address.

comment Configure NetworkManager's dnsmasq to use /etc/hosts
@txwikinger Many options files are reread when dnsmasq receive a HUP signal. This includes both the /etc/hosts and /etc/ethers files. Restart times are fast enough, that it will be rare for clients to not get a response.

comment Disabling Bluetooth and IVP6 in Lubuntu 14.04 does not work
@user236378 The command not found message indicate that the program is either not installed, or is not on the search path. In this case it appears the missing command is sudo. Try running sudo -i to verify.
