That question seems useful but not a duplicate of this one. This question is very specificly about case sensitivity.

comment Running software-center from command line as root
If you're using an alternative DE/WM, you need to make sure /usr/lib/policykit-1-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 is run at start-up. Software Centre uses PolicyKit and needs this to be running.

comment Can't switch language in Ubuntu 13.10 lock screen
That's OK, Andrey. You're only seeing the "add comment" link now because you can only comment on your own posts. The ability to comment everywhere is a privilege to be unlocked, unfortunately, which means new users are sometimes forced to use an answer when a comment would be more appropriate.

comment How to connect android phone internet with ubuntu
Please add some details on what you have tried and what isn't working. If you want to connect your phone to your laptop through wi-fi without using a router, this is called using an "adhoc network", you might want to try searching for that. (Oh, and welcome to Ask Ubuntu!)

comment Confusion with printf command?
$variable is replaced by the shell, not by printf. If you surround your string with single quotes instead of double quotes, $ will no be interpolated by the shell and will get passed directly to printf.
