comment 14.04 Shutdown hangs on printing error message
If we can get info on his hardware that matches what I'm saying, we're possibly on the right track. We would need the output of his lspci. That being said, there are times when a comment is ill adapted to give clear examples of output or commands, in my point of view.

comment 14.04 Shutdown hangs on printing error message
Ah, I see, it hangs in a forever loop... At times Ctrl-S still works, but I would be surprised because by then it probably has no console functionality anymore.

Your screenshot is hard to read, did you take the picture once it was stuck or while it was printing errors?!

Wow! I was not aware that it would check once per hour by default! It seems like a lot to me...

comment debuild failed at dh_install with cp: cannot stat `debian/tmp//path/to/install/bin/': No such file or directory
The $DESTDIR is automatically setup and changes between the dh_auto_install, from debian/<projectname>/sub-folders... to the dh_install that decides to use debian/tmp/sub-folders.... In effect, the dh_install command fails to find the files that were well installed indeed, but in a slightly different path. Why would dh_auto_install switch using the project-name instead of tmp in the installation path?

comment How to add permissions to files installed by dpkg-buildpackage or debuild
Couldn't we do dh_fixperms first, the a chmod a+x path/to/pythonscript.py? — because that way dh_fixperms does everything right as per debian and then you fix a few more things your way. Correct?

Added info about the name of the buttons if added to the script since I only showed regular keys.

In "General Options", then tab "Key Bindings". It is shown in the screenshot, but of course... you have to know that the name on the left corresponds to the button to click to get there.

comment Can I skip over releases when upgrading?
+1 for the rubbish cleaning, which I haven't done since 2009... Luckily drives are huge now. Note also that only backing up /home is okay on an end user desktop, but on a server, you are likely to have tons of settings in /etc/... which need to be reinstalled and that takes forever to do if you install a fresh OS.

@Avian00 Somehow, when you upgrade to an LTS, they force the Prompt variable in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades to lts. You have to change it back to normal to get upgrades to work normally again. At least, that's my experience.
