comment What's the most convenient way to share Steam apps between different users?
@SamWatkins Yeah. The folders don't stay ugo+rwx. I've only had problems though when games are updated. The game is locked to the user who initiated the update so that it can't be touched by others until the update finishes on the initial user. Others can't continue the update it while this is going on; it gives a disk write error. I think when the update is done, everything works fine again, since I've only noticed problems when updating. It sucks, unfortunately.

comment HDMI audio to Samsung TV not working Ubuntu 14.04
Thanks. This worked for me. My issue (14.04) was with Nvidia through HDMI. I don't know what exactly I did; I just tinkered with the settings until sound came on.

comment My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?
Thanks! Mine had been booting into a black screen. I didn't follow most of what's here, but I found a way to enter recovery mode since the shift method didn't work for me. In the end, the fix was a grub update in recovery mode.

comment My steam won't start!
I had a similar error messages so I tried this out and it worked. I couldn't have thought that it was a graphics diver issue because Steam worked on one user account but not on another. I just installed the open-source driver then started Steam. I didn't have to re-install.

comment Error when installing RTL8188CUS wireless driver from sh: “/lib/modules/3.5.0-27-generic/build: No such file or directory”
The driver works fine now as-is with kernel 3.13 from upgrading to 14.04.

@Avinash Mounting via ntfs-3g even with the remove-hiberfile option gives the same error as mounting it with defaults. In the end, I just backed-up the partition then wiped it. Thanks nonetheless.

@Avinash I haven't tried that. I don't have a hold of the computer until Thursday. Would that command work with Windows 8 hibernation? Can you give an example usage of the syntax?

@Avinash I want to get rid of the hibernation lock for good since I don't have the Windows 8 installation anymore. The script solution you pointed to doesn't appear to fix that.

@MatthewDavid You can still go change the permission of the folder of you wanted regardless of that warning.

@bodhi.zazen Maybe a warning should be added for that. I think GUI solutions are still easier to follow than trying to memorize commands. There's a similar to mine in the one you linked to.
