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.

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.

comment 'nvidia-settings' received an X Window System error (error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.)
Cool. I'll try this out, but I'm just afraid that apt-get would suggest the new erroneous version every time I run apt-get upgrade?

comment Lenovo T440s deactivate touch pad but keep mouse button function working?
Nice! But this only lets left click function for me, without middle-scroll and right click. I'm trying to figure out now...

comment To enable wireless on Thinkpad t440s
Good to know about Windows Wireless Drivers. Now I'm looking for the way to use it on USB boot (I want to verify if Ubuntu works on this machine first by USB)..

comment Stop arbitrarily “following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required”
Thanks for a clear answer. One note; unmarkauto option in apt-mark may be deprecated now (I got stopped with a message) - we may use instead hold.

comment Network printer recognized but not printing
@SimplySimon I do apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade and apt-get dist-update almost everyday. Do you have particular components in mind to upgate?
