comment Why do I need an Ubuntu One account for the Ubuntu Touch App store?
I don't see how "This is an account for all the Ubuntu stuff" answers the question "Why do I need this account?". I understand that you'd need an account for reviews and maybe syncing installed software (though in my opinion that's not a very useful thing as long as most my desktop programs aren't ported to Ubuntu Touch yet), but how does that justify making it mandatory even for downloading apps?

comment Nautilus(and Nemo too) cannot Mount if mount option is noauto/user and the mount point has non-western character
Please don't file bugs on Launchpad if the project isn't managed by Canonical. I did that the first time ever filing a bug and it resulted in the maintainers of that program or library to not actually notice the bug report until months later. Instead, try to find out how to report bugs for the specific project. In the case of nautilus, searching for "gnome nautilus" in most search engines should get you here somehow. On the bottom of that page, you'll find a link for creating a bug report in GNOMEs Bugzilla. Search for existing bugs first!

comment Is it possible to install the Ubuntu SDK in Gentoo?
I wanted to ask the same question, though I'm using a different GNU/Linux distribution. Why is this off-topic? Doesn't if fall into the "Services provided by Ubuntu and Canonical." category? I haven't tried to build it yet because launchpad is extremely confusing to me. Which all all these repositories am I meant to clone and build??

comment Using Unity with i3-wm
Canonical wants to bring Unity 8 to the desktop anyway, right? If so, it no more really matters what you can do with Unity 7 because it will sooner or later be incompatible. It would have been nice, but maybe someone will simply build a Unity-independent HUD and / or fuzzy-search application launcher like the Unity dash somewhen :)

comment Media player that can be told what tracks I want to skip
Yes, that's no problem either. I don't know which version and look of gmusicbrowser you are using, but for me, it is just selecting an artist from the first of the three top columns [, then clicking an album] and afterwards selecting the filter. With the little play button between the three top columns and the track list below, the filtered tracks are all copied to the playlist. I'll make a screenshot so it's clearer.

comment Upgrade from 13.04 to 13.10 through ssh
The message 'kvm disabled by bios' is nothing to be worried about. At least if your computer boots up normally, just ignore it.

comment GtkSourceView in Glade and C++
Did you create the file yourself? Why don't you use glade for that? Besides that, the object type "GtkSourceView" has to work, it is what glade writes into the file when adding a GtkSourceView in it. Perhaps the problem is not the glade file, but the code you use to build a UI from it. But for questions about that, you should better use StackExchange or the gtkmm mailing list.

comment gnome3: Which program do I use to set an icon for my user account?
If you are using an older version of gnome than I do (I've got 3.8) it could be that some bits are different, but afaik there weren't so many changes on this since gnome 3 departed.
