comment Making a backup copy of the DVD “Iron Man 2”
see here, describes a slight mis-use of dvdisaster. An encyrpted, stucture protected .iso is quite playable with some players like vlc (no need to mount). Some short extras may not be available but main menu, main movie should be. ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6365060#post6365060

What is your intended use of this .iso, just for playback or something else?

comment Why does my custom launcher open under a separate icon?
/usr/bin/pv4 is a script that apparently opens your app in some manner that is itself associated with an icon. Probably javascript - perforce.com/product/components/perforce-visual-client

comment How do I solve green layer problem while playing HEVC in Ubuntu 14.04?
you could install mpv from here & try. It supports hevc without the need for any plugins, if still green then without a sample can't say if there is a solution - launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/mpv-tests

comment Nautilus - Open with Sublime - Open in new window
Easily done editing by sublime's .desktop or thru a nautilus action, But - The default for sublime is to remember/re-open last session. So in that case if you edit the .desktop or a nautilus action is used on a file with sublime not open you'll get 2 windows opening - the new one & one reflecting previous session/tabs. So editing the .desktop is out unless you want to disable that feature. If using NA then you'd only use it when sublime is already open. Which do you prefer?

comment Ubuntu 15.04 Wine won't install: dependency issues
That was a package for 14.10 from the Oibaf graphics ppa, because that ppa uses it's own form of naming it should be purged before doing an Ubuntu release upgrade

You should also get straight that 3pg is a format, not a codec

comment How can I convert mp4 and mkv to 3gp?
In 14.04 there is no FFmpeg, it's in 15.04/15.10 but there are no extra packages for it. The extra packages are for libav (avconv), not ffmpeg. avconv can convert to .3gp though user may be better off with winff than your generic command

comment Ubuntu 15.04 Wine won't install: dependency issues
Install aptitude & use itinstead of apt-get to try to install wine. It usually provides more explicit reason(s) as to what's blocking.

comment Bring back `BackSpace` Keyboard Shortcuts on nautilus and thunar
Correct - this is proper one for "back', up is parent directory not back. Also note that at least in nautius 3.10 (14.04, trusty) backspace is auto binded to up so one would need to manually edit the file.
