Note this can also apply if "cdrom" is in the repo list, see askubuntu.com/a/386048/254

@PKKid pip install http://example.com/path/to/zipball works. For a local path use pip install ~/projects/foo/.

revised likewise-open | 14.04 | other easy way to connect AD?
multi group require membership; AD groups in sudoers; escaping spaces; use bash for shell (for tab completion)

comment How do I enable the “Other” user for login with Active Directory?
@foobarbecue, check that topic again. It appears things have changed with v14.04, and lightdm-set-defaults has been deprecated.

comment likewise-open | 14.04 | other easy way to connect AD?
For me, tab completion in terminal shells is broken for AD user; from here, I think sudo /opt/pbis/bin/config LoginShellTemplate /bin/bash might fix that (for new users only?). Also there's a note that 50-unity-greeter.conf needs to be edited instead for Lubuntu 14.04.
