force user and force group are indeed still valid parameters, but it does not change anything. Files and directories are created as Nobody / Domain Users anyway (don't know why, maybe inherit owner ?, but are NOT group writable...

comment How to get a consistent bluetooth audio playback?
Glad it helped you. Notice that I've also been using the lowlatency kernel since, with no apparent drawback I could notice...

comment Can linux-lowlatency be used with UEFI secure boot?
In fact I now get a notice on boot saying "booting in insecure mode". I can't really tell if the message is from the Bios or from the grub, but your response makes me think it's a grub message...

comment software to create a VPN
Well, this is a silly question, you know ;-) What do you mean by "configure a VPN connexion"? Do you want to set up a VPN server ? Do you want to conect to an existing server ? If the later, you should install "network-manager-*" that bring a bunch of VPN clients. If the former, look at OpenVPN.

comment Cannot connect to a remote machine via PuTTY. It's connecting to the machine, but the desktop is not displaying
What are you trying to do? Connect to a ubuntu machine from Windows, right? Is ssh server installed on the Ubuntu side? What result do you expect? (you should get a terminal, nothing more)

comment What is the current status of Mir / XMir?
That's my feeling, but Mir is supposed to be one of the key components of Ubuntu's convergence strategy. Also, other distributions (be it desktop or phone like Sailfish) are using wayland. Is the Mir strategy still ongoing, or is Ubuntu slowly changing its mind on that ?

Thanks. I'll probably choose this answer if no other comes, but really, reading those sources did not enlighten me...

comment Sometimes left mouse button acting like right, and coursor moving without input
To me, it look like a hardware problem rather than a bug... but you're using several different devices, so I'm not so sure.

comment ubuntu server not seeing ethernet port
So, you mistyped in the question, or in your real /etc/network/interfaces? If it's in the question, and your problem is not solved, what does 'ip link' give you ? I have seen some onboard network interfaces called p2p1 instead of eth0.

comment ubuntu server not seeing ethernet port
In your snipset, you have etho instead of eth0 on the second line. Maybe a mistyping in the question, or this is the problem ?

Ok, I think the card is definitely broken. I get IO errors whatever I try... Thanks for the tips. Marking this as answer, as it works on other cards and is good to remember.

Did you set 'Terminal=true' in your .desktop file ?

comment How to reformat my SD card?
Even that did not work. dd executed just fine (took a while). But when I reinserted the card, the old partition is still there! (maybe the write could not be synced to disk? Maybe the media is broken?

comment Setting up proxy in Ubuntu server 14.04
I guess you should begin by checking Wikipedia to begin with: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_server , as your question is not really specific!
