comment How to exclude/ignore hidden files and directories in a wildcard-embedded “find” search?
@frostschutz The dot after find means the current directory: find will look at all files and directories under the current directory. The argument after path is a regular expression, where a dot would normally means "any character", to make it mean a literal dot we have to escape it with a backslash. The argument after -name isn't a regular expression, but it expands wildcards like ? and * like a shell does.

comment How to backup a system with whole disk-encryption?
Generally "whole disk encryption" means something like LUKS for the entire root partition, not the home directory encryption option.

Although there is a small chance that something like Photorec might be able to recover it.

There is no Ubuntu 12, only Ubuntu 12.04 or Ubuntu 12.10. Similarly for Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu 14.10.

comment I want to learn how Unity works (documentation/command line tutorials)
I think this is a good question, but most open source projects are only partially documented, and you'll learn the full picture of Unity as you attempt to solve each of those questions one a time.
