comment Why does Ubuntu Software Center Icon has “A” on it?
I don't think any one other than Design really knows, App.. seems likely. It is discussed in this bug report, note that no one actually would answer the question of what the A stood for other than it is an A bugs.launchpad.net/ayatana-design/+bug/1081691 (- the -1 was uncalled for, bumped back

comment Optimus nvidia GeForce GT 750m opengl 3 and 4

Though here it does show on 14.04 - OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Haswell Mobile OpenGL core profile version string: 3.3 (Core Profile) Mesa 10.1.3 OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 3.30

Have you tried using nvidia-prime & nvidia-331? Works here to use nvidia on a 755m though thru prime there is no chance of vsync

comment Lib6c caused file loss
What you're saying doesn't on the face make any sense. libc6 is by default installed in all Ubuntu flavors. So unless you removed it or altered your sources list, apt-get install libc6 would only tell you that it was already installed

comment upgraded to 14.04 LTS, Clementine is not working
This problem is more suited to an interactive forum. Anyway - try purging clementine & vlc-data. Then update your sources, run an sudo apt-get clean & simulate an autoremove - sudo apt-get -s autoremove If that looks ok rerun without the -s option. Then try installing the players & see. If no go look into what versions of libqt4core & libqtgui4 are installed & also are the 12.04 versions installed? (may have a different name(s)

comment How can I get /dev/dvd to exist after a reboot
Sounds like you're okay then. For info purposes the smylink was disappearing on boot because you have no (udev) rule creating the /dev/dvd link.

comment How can I get /dev/dvd to exist after a reboot
I've seen a couple of apps that haven't switched off of /dev/dvd but they can simply be changed in their preferences. Videos (totem) doesn't seem to be one that uses /dev/dvd (nor can it be changed). So better to fix your apps. If really bent on keeping /dev/dvd I can show you one way that'll work until udev is updated (which may never happen..

comment ffmpeg & ffprobe & libfdk-aac on Ubuntu 14.10 server
That ppa does not include fdkaac. You could post your issues here & we'll see if a self build can be fixed - ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=786095 A self build is your best option due to server. I have ffmpeg shared for both 14.04 & 15.04 in ppa's with fdkaac, not that inclined to do 14.10. (- though if you wish to discuss in Ubuntu forums maybe I'll put up a server version in a tmp ppa.Ex. of 14.04 - launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/testing6 15.04 - launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/ffmpeg-test1 Over time both will get more sources built of off, ect.

comment gedit top menu invisible when started from terminal and using x11-Forwarding
Seems abnormal, here gedit's menu is always accessible whether started from the .desktop (Dash) or the binary (a terminal). You can always use this from a terminal - gtk-launch gedit or gtk-launch gedit /path/to/a/file. This uses the .desktop to launch
