comment Ubuntu Freezes when Switching to Full-screen VirtualBox VM
@Braiam Well clearly I can't be sure about others. But I think it's fine to close this and advise everyone to install the latest updates.

@Braiam How about close as fixed or solved?! Your choice.

@Braiam I don't know what part of that large chapter is directly related to this question, but the problem is solved in updated versions of VirtualBox.

comment TeXmaker 4.4.1-1 function keys don't work after upgrading (14.10 - 15.04)
I have the same issue on 15.10! None of the function shortcut keys (F1 - F12) work, but clicking on the menu-item for the same functionality works.

comment Convert Text File Encoding
As I mentioned in response to the answer posted by 'Incnis Mrsi', that solution failed to work and so does this script.

After testing more throughly, this method also failed to solve the problem on some real test-cases. Thus, I'm removing the solution mark.

comment Can't Access Apache on VirtualBox VM (using NAT + Host-only)
@ChristopherMarkieta Yes, turning off iptables can have security consequences and it is only recommended for controlled test environments. For a production system the correct way is to configure iptables to allow the desired traffic to pass in and out.

comment How to get rid of the DNS Unlocker adware?
@mahdiar Hi Mahdiar. Unfortunately I have nothing more to add here. I tried this on another infected Firefox on Linux Mint and it solved the problem. Make sure you delete the whole .mozilla folder. And make sure you don't bring anything smelly from the infected Firefox back.

@Zacharee1 I see them in several sites, but not all. Also I changed to another router to connect to the Internet and nothing changed; the ads still come up.

comment How to get rid of the DNS Unlocker adware?
@Zacharee1 I don't have Google Chrome installed, only Chromium, which I haven't opened lately and I haven't checked its plugins. But in Firefox I checked the plugins list and I didn't notice anything suspicous. Yes, by searching I also only found Windows related topics.

@Mateo I checked the network settings and I'm on 'No Proxy'. I also checked the /etc/hosts file and all seemed normal.

@Zacharee1 Nothing unfamilar there either. The last installations were on Monday. But I'm seeing these, since this morning.

I wrote a useful script based on the working command which I have explained in another answer here. I hope it will help other Persian Linux-users as it help me a lot.

comment Invalid Partition Table
I guess your problem is the same as the question you cited. If you have access to another Linux machine try the dd command mentioned there.

Also to be free of the LANG variable setting, one can do: iconv -f WINDOWS-1256 -t UTF-8 in.txt > out.txt which I tested and worked. So it may be a good idea to edit your command like this.

comment Convert Text File Encoding
Thanks! The second command (the one using iconv) worked. But the first one (using recode) didn't work correctly and the output was still gibberish. Edit your answer to only include the iconv command and I will mark it as the answer.

comment Ubuntu Freezes when Switching to Full-screen VirtualBox VM
@markkirby I doubt that question is related to my issue. That question is for VB-4.3.16 and on a Windows host. Also, the mini-toolbar is disabled in my situation and still the problem exists. Like I said, I'm a regular VB user (almost everyday in full-screen mode) and I had no issues with this VM until this morning.

comment Ubuntu Freezes when Switching to Full-screen VirtualBox VM
@markkirby After a clean boot, there is only one instance of compiz. Running VB itself doesn't invoke another instance. Even starting up the Win-7 VM in windowed-mode didn't invoke another compiz. But then I tried switching to full-screen mode and the system froze! I didn't had a chance to check the processes list.
