comment Missing boot screen after installing nvidia drivers at Ubuntu 16.04
I still get a 403 for your images. You may want to test when you are not logged in that website. I see the exact same problem with the NVidia driver. It is supposed to show me the NVidia logo (I boot in a console then do startx, I prefer) but I nearly never ever see it. I think that the initialization process is such that the video out does not make it until later, at which point the boot process is done. It's my take, at least.

You should add your picture to your question. Also at this point I get a 403 Forbidden error...

comment Slow connection to linux servers
The VPS will be sharing its Internet connection with others... so it is normal to see fluctuations over time. But 6 megabytes/s is indeed only about 50% of what you should be getting at home...

comment Slow connection to linux servers
Okay, so the connection on your end looks good to me: 100Mb download and 23Mb upload. Now, do you have console access to your VPS? (ssh or direct console via some website) If so, you can test the speed of your connection on your server. A simple test is to use a wget -O /dev/null http://...some big file.... wget gives you the rate as part of the result.

What do you expect to see on your boot screen?

Note that if your VPN uses encrypting before transferring the data it will always be slower (and safer) than a non-encrypted connection. But first you should check your connection as is and let use know how fast a connection you can get to the Internet without bittorrent or VPN or what not.

comment How to set default Java version?
I tried the update-java-alternatives and then java -version was correct, but the link in $JAVA_HOME was still wrong... I changed that one manually, but I wonder whether there is something missing in the update-java-alternatives in that regard.

comment Easiest way to setup Ubuntu as a VPN server
Please, remove the sudo ifw disable. It is bad advice. If the firewall goes down even for a split second, it is open to hackers to enjoy attacking your server. You may just do sudo ifw reload assuming it is already enabled (which it should be.)

comment Mouse cursor disappearing at every second boot Ubuntu 13.10
I just had the problem on 15.10 on two computers at a time, a reboot fixed one computer and on the other I just restarted X11 a couple of times and got the mouse back...

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?!
