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.

comment 'nvidia-settings' received an X Window System error (error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.)
Thanks! Just adding, to avoid apt-get telling me to update nvidia-setings to its newest version, I had to echo 'nvidia-settings hold' | sudo dpkg --set-selections (without telling the version).

comment rhythmbox won't play radio stations from 13.04
I got it working! Thx (I know we should no longer remain on 13.04 now that's EOL). Still I sometime get Internal Data Flow Error but relaunching Rhythmbox seems to resolve it.
