comment After removing the latest kernel, how can I be notified of kernel updates again?
Ah sorry that was it. I got 3.13.0.24.28 from your command, so I ran sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic=3.13.0.24.28 and now I am getting updates again. Appreciated!

What would I put in place of <old-version>? I tried sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic=3.13.0-34 but I get E: Version ‘3.13.0-34’ for ‘linux-image-generic’ was not found

comment Python scripting - How to execute linux commands?
Is there a specific reason for doing this in Python? I'm asking as it sounds like bash is more suited to those three specific tasks.

How did you create the bootable USB? Did you create a persistent storage area and what size is that area?

comment alt key for HUD conflict
Unfortunately - without a patch - I don't think you can. I myself have opted to disable the HUD since Alt is such an important keystroke for so many applications. Until a better answer comes along.

You should be able to post a link to a screenshot though; use something like imgur.com to host the image itself.

I think this is the first time I've seen a release without the drawn animal. I'm a fan of the previous Salamander wallpaper.

comment Partitioning Problem
If possible can you post a screenshot? Even better if you go to the Disk Manager in Windows and post the view of these 'rogue' partitions from there

comment Windows are going black when mini/maximizing
Have you by any chance been playing around with the 'animations' section in the Unity Tweak Tool? Or the minimize single window applications option in CCSM? I've found the minimize-zoom and unminimize-none option to give me fewer black screens.

comment Icon themes not fully applied
That may indicate that the icon paths that the settings window is looking for has changed which isn't unusual between version. I haven't looked through the source code to say enough so don't quote me on that. :)

Try ssh -T 192.168.1.3 as well as ssh -T 192.168.1.3 -vvv to see if you can connect and what verbose messages it's producing.
