comment How to search for specific lines in Linux?
vi and vim can also be told to show line numbers and to position the cursor at the beginning of a specific line, at the time they are launched: vi '+set nu' +52 (If you like, please feel free to add this information to your answer.)

comment Can someone provide a real, correct and genuine sources.list for Ubuntu 15.04?
@MarcoOz You can post the full error message by pasting it in, selecting it, and pressing Ctrl+K (or clicking the {} tool in the editing toolbar). This formats it as code, which will make it display more correctly, and has the additional benefit that code-formatted URLs are not automatically linkified--thus it won't make your post have more than two links in it. As for a screenshot, I highly recommend posting the text of the error message but if you wish to post an image you can upload it somewhere like postimage.org or imgur.com, give the link, and someone can add it.

comment Is it me or do the Nvidia proprietary drivers just SUCK
@bummi Although this question is phrased in a manner that may be considered needlessly inflammatory, hate speech is something entirely different.

comment Chmod wouldn't work, although I can modify files
Besides making this a better resource for people who find this answer by searching the web, the other reason I recommend expanding this answer is that right now it appears incorrect, or at least inapplicable to the OP's specific situation. So if it somehow is correct and applicable, it requires clarification to be useful. It looks like the partition is mounted via fuse with default permissions that can't be changed, rather than having attributes set that prevent changing the file's metadata. @Vorac's comment about the function not implemented error appears to support this guess.

comment How can I preset aliases for all users?
The method in this answer should not be used. Aliases in .sh files in /etc/profile.d/ (or /etc/profile) will be defined only for login shells and they will not work in interactive non-login shells. Unlike environment variables, bash can't export aliases to child processes, not even child bash shells. This method may seem to work properly if it's only tested in login shells, such as the original shell obtained by logging on in a virtual console or via SSH, but it fails in their child shells and also fails in shells started by GUI terminal windows.

comment How can I preset aliases for all users?
By "preset," do you mean you want all new users to be created with certain aliases, which they can then easily reconfigure? Or do you mean you want to create global aliases, such that all users will have them all the time (and be able to redefine/undefine them... but not see them when they look through their own configuration files, which they might find befuddling)? Or something else? Related: Undertanding .bashrc and .bash_profile (in spite of its odd title, I believe that question and this one are actually quite similar).
