comment Audacious - Radio Stations Tuning Device ID
You should really trust me in saying the dev id business is not for you. If still inclined start here - shoutcast.com/Partners

that means developer id & nothing to do with audacious per se or anything you need. Just use a url or get/create a .pls file.

comment Getting error in upgrading Ubuntu to 14.04?
Technically 13.10 reached EOL some time ago. fridge.ubuntu.com/2014/07/17/… If that's really the case then you'd need to switch to the old-releases repo

comment Change background color of sorted column in Nautilus list view
Maybe post a screen of what you have now. Nautilus here in 14.04 does not shade the name column when sorting at all. The link you provided is 3 yr.s old concerning a much older nautilus & theme

comment No dash, no launcher in Ubuntu 14.10
It may be easier for you to resolve this in an interactive forum like Ubuntu forums, anyway - log into ubuntu session, open a terminal & go ccsm. The first 3 lines should be Backend : gsettings Integration : true, Profile : unity. A Profile of Default would be wrong. So check that first. If profile is unity then try enabling OpenGl, Composite, Ubuntu unity plugin ect. If profile isn't unity then go to Preferences > Profile, choose unity, then go back & enable mentioned plugins

comment No dash, no launcher in Ubuntu 14.10
Well then you know now it's something in your config. Maybe try a reset compiz & restart unity command. Provide yourself a means open a terminal while in the ubuntu(unity) session. Login, open a terminal, then 2 commands. dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ followed by setsid unity (- if need be log into flashback session & place the terminal launcher on the Desktop., then log into ubuntu session, ect.

comment reinstall libgcc1 to get gcc 4.9
Well you can maybe still use dpkg to install though it doesn't resolve dependencies so could be time consuming. Also there is the question of the other 2000 or so packages removed. I'd copy out any files of interest & start fresh

comment Software Center and Updates will Not load in 14.04 Ubuntu
Sounds like you had added the debian repo for mono & then maybe disabled/removed it but the file is now wrong. So either get rid of the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-xamarin.list or open in a root text editor & fix

comment (SOLVED) Reinstalled VLC from scratch on Ubuntu is always looking for plugins in the wrong directory
Well I'd take your word for it except your command is deficient. Did you actually browse & look?

comment (SOLVED) Reinstalled VLC from scratch on Ubuntu is always looking for plugins in the wrong directory
You probably didn't remove all of vlc based on that find command. Just go to /usr/local/* and remove everything related to vlc/libvlc/libvlccore in /usr/local/bin, /usr/local/lib, /usr/local/include, /usr/local/share. Notice that in your vlc -vv output it says "configured with ./configure". The repo version would be Much more expansive
