comment How can I get rid of the 'wl_80211_attach Reg CFG80211 Phy' warning during boot?
I have this warning and can connect without an issue to my wireless networks, lspci shows Broadcom Corporation BCM43228 802.11a/b/g/n I have a different adapter though.

comment How do I disable X at boot time so that the system boots in text mode?
Since the question is made for Ubuntu and not the mobile platform (can you even change anything in the mobile version of Ubuntu? Why would that be a good thing? I am guessing you would be locked to a prompt that knows nothing about keyboard input and accepts fancy finger touches and gestures :P) I am assuming we are talking about Ubuntu, the desktop Linux based operative system that I love and can modify to my needs. :) But you are right, there is a semantics issue with the title of the post, feel free to edit it to something more proper! Thanks for the comments.

That works for lightdm, this works for any graphical login manager? This is the proper way of loading a Linux system without loading a X server? Just seems more logical? Choose one... :)

"Not modifying the Router or any in the middle hardware", does that include your own router or just the company where you work one?

comment How to create a tunneling connection for remote screen sharing
Is opening a reverse ssh tunnel not an option? If so you just need to open a defined port on your side and direct that to a ssh server running on your side...

comment How do I access my Windows files from Ubuntu?
Hey, I edited your post to remove the parts that are not objective to the question, that will decrease the chance of people down voting it and increase the chance that you get some proper help. Please be aware that this is not a "forum" so all the necessary information should be in your post, the more information you give the better.

Open a terminal (look for it on the dash) and type the command sudo fdisk -l, what is the output of it? Edit your question with more information please.

Login time for current user... Why would anyone want their Skype account started when another user logins or even when your computer starts?

comment Upgrading Ubuntu from LTS to newer version, in steps or simply release upgrade?
@Private Do not use a development release on a server... Its recommended that if you need something more recent you upgrade to a non LTS or wait until the next LTS is released.

comment Terminal shows “Couldn't open audio: Couldn't open audio device or ESD connection” after launching a game and there is no sound in the game
This needs to be converted to a Q&A format, after editing and creating an answer this can re-opened :)

Please create an answer to your own question bellow instead of including it on the question it self. As it is the format does not fit a Q&A site and is more fit for a forum. Just copy the text from your question and post it as an answer please.

comment Can Filemaker Pro work on Ubuntu?
This site works better if your questions are formulated so that you get one answer per question, I have edited your question to reflect that and removed unwanted comments about other operative systems.
