comment How to move /usr to a new partition?
Also I left off the -f when I did sudo rm -r /mnt/usr as an extra safeguard against bad things.

@MarcoCeppi Could you expand on that? Maybe give a variant answer that uses rsync instead?

comment ubuntu: escape or exit superuser mode
Are you sure it is booting up into a root terminal? It sounds like it is prompting you to login since you say "I can type in my user name..."

You can manually clear some space. Try deleting temp and cache files.

@isaaclw As of 2013 they seemed to have got more obnoxious about it. See user130547's answer below.

There is not enough information here for us to help you (i.e. need more specifics on why/how the updates failed etc.)

@user114117 You may post your information as an answer or a comment. It does not belong as an edit to the question—particularly since you are not the owner of the question. I'm surprised the reviewers approved it.

comment How do I eliminate the extra title bar?
Excellent! No one seems to be mentioning state=maxhorz, but that is important, especially if you want to use the Window Grid plugin. I tried maxhori and maxhoriz and neither worked; should have figured this out. Took some searching. +1 upvote this answer people.

I tried what I could from there and it didn't seem to fix it, even though some of the things he said (missing "Sort" field etc) were true.

comment Libreoffice Base reports not working after upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04
@ObsessiveFOSS Yes sir, I understand. I'm just saying that I hadn't got around to doing it because you can't accept your own answers at first, and then I hadn't remembered (I don't check this site as regularly as some of the others).

comment Libreoffice Base reports not working after upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04
@ObsessiveFOSS Thank you, I understand that (look at my network profile and you will see that I have fairly high rep on some sites). The reason why I hadn't gotten around to accepting some of the answers is that on some of my questions, my own answer was the one that ended up fixing the problem.

This hasn't worked so far. Is that because I have removed rhythmbox? (Surely not.)
