comment No desktop after enabling root in Ubuntu!
@markkirby Are you asking for .xsession-errors in the user's home directory (in which case sudo should be unnecessary even if a file like .Xauthority is root-owned -- but if sudo is to be used, it should be sudo -H or -sudo -i for running gedit) or .xsession-errors in root's home directory (in which case sudo -H gedit /root/.xsession-errors should be used instead)? Muhammad al Jayyosi: Exactly what steps did you use when you enabled the root account?

comment How can I read usb in Virtual Box with Windows 7 in my Ubuntu 14.04?
@EmilieRuvalcaba After adding yourself to the vboxusers group with usermod, did you log out and back in (or reboot, which would also be fine)? New group memberships are effective only for login sessions started after the change is made. Btw I do not recommend making teh main group for your user vboxusers; this isn't necessary and there's no reason to think it would be more effective, and it may also produce some undesired results in terms of file access in your Ubuntu system. (It shouldn't cause any huge problems though.)

comment How to set up USB for Virtualbox?
@learner That's very strange, since -aG and -a -G should have the same effect when passed as options to usermod. Is it possible that instead you had not logged out and back in the first time, but had done so the second time?

comment Will I be able to get an interface that is like Gnome Classic in Ubuntu 14.04?
@karel Should mate-desktop-environment-extras be considered a better package to install to get MATE than ubuntu-mate-desktop?

comment Gnome Classic for 15.04?
@user78162 You can install the same packages as in Ubuntu MATE on an already-existing Ubuntu system. Just install the ubuntu-mate-desktop package. Or if you want only the core components, install ubuntu-mate-core.

@ninjachicken1 I suggest posting that as an answer. Then maybe this question will remain open and people who search with the same problem will find your solution and know what to do.
