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

comment Ubuntu 14.04 Sound Not Working
Does it work if you click on the Digital Output (S/PDIF) option? My sound didn't work until I changed the output device.

comment Why do I not have a Tahr wallpaper
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. :)

comment unable to connect local server with ssh?
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.

comment Aceessing a webserver on aws EC2 instance with custom nameservers?
Can you explain further what you mean by "resolve the domain name through a custom name-server" - are you running your own nameserver or do you mean you've created an A record pointing at the EC2 instance?

comment How can I open and close an SSH tunnel along with Firefox?
Got it - I needed to detect the PID of the SSH process differently, the PID[0] being reported in the script is wrong. So I did this: trap "ps aux | grep ssh | grep 2001 | awk '{print \$2}' | xargs kill" EXIT SIGINT SIGTERM If you modify your post I can mark yours as answer, thanks!

comment How can I open and close an SSH tunnel along with Firefox?
This looks promising - but the SSH connection doesn't die when I close Firefox, just stays open. I guess the trap isn't catching Firefox's exit? I've not heard of trap before but I read a bit and tried adding even more signals trap "kill ${PID[*]}" EXIT QUIT INT STOP TERM ERR SIGINT SIGTERM but it still wasn't caught.

The RIGHT isn't necessary, just Ctrl+Shift+C and Ctrl+Shift+V will work.

comment Qt Creator cannot run HTML5 apps on Ubuntu 13.10, is it broken?
@wilf - That file isn't there, I did a locate and found it here: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/. I'm using 64 bit Ubuntu.

comment ssh unable to connect with external ip (port 22 is open)
Try nmap -p 22 yourexternalip from work. Some work firewalls may block outgoing 22, so you could also try moving your SSH port to 80 or 443 and trying to connect to it from your corporate network.
