comment Clocks for multiple timezones in Gnome 3.4 (Ubuntu 12.04)
+1 but OP looks for 12.04, which is still valid distro at the moment. I tried to install on Precise but the dependency isn't satisfied.

comment Why isn't Startup Disk Creator working in 12.04?
This worked for me. Just a note: with my USB 2.0 thumbdrive, the whole process took 30 minutes while sometime the GUI hung, but went well in the end.

comment How do I install Guest Additions in a VirtualBox VM?
I liked to use this method for the mentioned reason. However, it didn't work for me on OSX host (10.9.3) and Ubuntu 12.04 guest on VirtualBox (4.3.12). I had to use ISO installation askubuntu.com/a/22745/24203 (otherwise got not such device error stackoverflow.com/questions/3492466/…)

comment Error mounting VirtualBox shared folders in an Ubuntu guest
It might be worth noting that share should be the shared folder's name defined in the setting dialogue on VirtualBox (I found some trusted answers in other questions suggest to use a full path of the shared folder's on the host).

comment No Unity bar, no window bar on Saucy and Trusty
At a loss, I just re-created a user account with the same name and it works fine. Hope this is simpler than re-installing the entire OS.
