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.

comment How do you mount a partition locked by Windows hibernation without dual boot
@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.

comment How do you mount a partition locked by Windows hibernation without dual boot
@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.

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

comment Permission issues
@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.

comment How to add event in Ubuntu calendar?
I thought the missing calendar was just the problem because one isn't installed by default. I don't know anymore. Sorry.

comment Web sites do not work when I am logged into Google Chrome or need to log in to Google
Maybe google.co.nz/ is the one causing the problem. Try going to the international site and then set the search box as your default search.

Try checking the Omnibox settings. Right click on it and then click on "Edit Search Engines." Maybe your defaults got messed up.

comment instaling uTorrent: No such file or directory
I suggest you try qBittorrent. It can be found in the Software Center, and it's better supported. It feels very much like µtorrent since qBittorrent aims to be a Free Software alternative.

How do you want your partitioning to look like? Will you be dual-booting?

What is the location of your SSD? Is it in /media/[user] or have you designated a mount location?

comment Darktable not starting. No Error
Have you checked System Settings>Software & Updates>Other Software? Upgrading disables third-party repos.

comment What's the most convenient way to share Steam apps between different users?
For the first solution, where do you think the shared read/write directory could be placed neatly? Would you put it in "/"? Your second solution is, I think, exactly like mine. I have some reservations about it myself; it doesn't seem like clean solution. Can you think of ways this solution can go wrong?

comment How do I modify or disable the HUD's use of the Alt key?
It should have been just alt-super by default, especially with all the games coming up for Linux. Thanks.

You may also just install "linux-headers-generic" (Generic Linux Kernel Headers) if you have the latest kernel anyway.
