Thanks - I executed the first 2 suggested commands and got the same seg. fault as described in the question: Setting up shared-mime-info (0.71-1ubuntu2) ... Segmentation fault dpkg: error processing shared-mime-info (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 139 Errors were encountered while processing: shared-mime-info

comment Which Dell laptops are fully compatible with Ubuntu 12.04?
Thanks. 13" Laptop, although a dream in terms of mobility (esp. for someone who really want to get rid of years of 15.6" latitude weight), is unusable due to low screen resolution.

izx, yes this is generally what I am looking for, but I'm a little bit flexible so I did not want to restrict the discussion.

Anyway, are you aware of any issues with the 14" Latitudes or Inspirons?

@LordofTime - which is why I did not mention the model number on the title (was edited later) but rather used it as an guidance to what I'm looking for.

@reverendj1 - I had a look and I think they don't offer a FullHD w/ discrete graphics model.

Thanks. This is very helpful. I noticed that you changed the title - but I did not want to make it a E6520 specific question, but rather a more general Dell question. I mentioned that model just b/c it seems to have the hardware options I like.

comment How to tell which of the two FTP server running is serving an FTP request?
OK, so does this mean that the only FTP server I have running is the vsftpd? If so why sftp is called sFTP? To quote from the sftp man page: " sftp is an interactive file transfer program, similar to ftp(1), which performs all operations over an encrypted ssh(1) transport."
