comment Convert Text File Encoding
Gedit can't fix the problem. Although Gedit doesn't show an encoding error for my file, even when it does it can't fix it. I've also tried "save as" with UTF-8 encoding in Gedit, but it doesn't fix the problem.

@muru I tested your suggestion with vim but it didn't work.

comment Convert Text File Encoding
Actually it doesn't answer the question! I read the details in the referenced post, and it's clear that Gaupol does nothing about the encoding problem and is just a subtitle editor! The post states that to fix encoding problems, one should use iconv!

comment How to check if my system is infected with the “Turla” trojan?
Of course, an answer that would clearly outline the steps to perform the DETECTION using any network monitoring tool (e.g. vnstat, netstat, ...), and the steps to perform for PREVENTION, using any firewall tool (e.g. ufw, iptables, ...) is greatly appreciated and DESIRED!

Thank you for the informative write-up. Although, this is bad news! :(

comment Where is Firefox's new “Forget” button in Ubuntu?
So, the point is that Firefox isn't updated to version 33.1 yet even after a few days has passed from it's release!

comment Incorrect GMT time
Oh! So the point is UTC == GMT ... And that's why there's no GMT in the list! I guess my problem is solved. The solution is: Just look at UTC and forget about Greenwich ;)

comment Incorrect GMT time
Well there is no entry for "GMT" in the "Time & Date" list. There is only one "Greenwich, UK" which I selected, assuming that it's GMT. If this is not GMT, then how can I have a GMT entry?

comment Incorrect GMT time
@steeldriver To add new locations in the "Time & Date" settings, you just type the name of the location, then select the desired item from the popup list. And there is only one "Greenwich, UK" in the list.

comment Problem with org.freedesktop.Geoclue.Providers.Hostip, running Qreator on Xubuntu-14.04
Thanks! That actually worked and it's working now! If this package is required, then why it's not in the dependencies?!

@Parto I checked xchm and it seems to be a nice alternative. Thank you.

comment What happened to ChmSee in 14.04?
@hbdgaf I took a closer look at the PPA and chmsee is not available for Trusty by that PPA. So basically this answer is not correct. The NICE and SAFE way is explained in another answer.

comment What happened to ChmSee in 14.04?
Thanks for the PPA. Although as said in another comment, I prefer to simply download and install a .deb package instead of adding an entire repository just to install one app!

comment What happened to ChmSee in 14.04?
Thanks for the info. I understand that un-maintained applications can cause security problems but in the case of chmsee which was stable and tested since 12.04 with no further changes till now, I'm not convinced this was a right choice.

comment What happened to ChmSee in 14.04?
This code adds a repository to my apt list. Is this repo considered safe? I mean is it certain that it won't cause any conflicts with the official Ubuntu packages? I would prefer simply downloading a .deb package instead of adding an entire repo just to install one app!

Thanks for the answer but those drivers were for the old days and they are now obsolete. You can read more about them in this wiki page: wiki.ubuntu.com/PoulsboObsoleteDrivers
