comment How do I use move space from /home lvm to root lvm
You will have to do this with a live CD. More recent versions of gparted support LVM. Alternately , once yo uboot the live usb, install system-config-lvm sudo apt-get -y install system-config-lvm && sudo system-config-lvm system-config-lvm is a graphical tool to manage LVM. Be warned, increasing th e size of a LV is easy, but making it smaller can be problematic.

comment Problems installing Ubuntu in UEFI system
Keep (U) EFI enabled. In the EFI / boot section of your bios you can select which OS to boot. It varies by bios.

comment Can I make Tab auto-completion case-insensitive in the terminal?
As long as you understand what and how the script functions, you can manually write the file if you wish. If you do not understand the script , see the comments. The comments and script were part of the explanation.

comment re-direct /Documents to a folder on a ubuntu server
On Linux it is called active directory, see the link I gave you. I am not aware of any graphical configuration tool and it takes some time to configure.

I think you want LDAP - help.ubuntu.com/community/ActiveDirectoryHowto - but I am not sure as I find your question vague

Look at the documentation for you computer, usually you hold a button down as it boots, shift, F2, F8 , F10 .... it varies by bios. Once you enter the bios, look for a boot (efi) menu

comment How to perform a HP BIOS upgrade with only Ubuntu?
It depends on the BIOS, some "modern" bios will not upgrade outside of windows. In that event you may have to write your own - see bios-mods.com

My guess is that you need to disable secure boot, but I am not sure. Later it appears the module loaded, is the device working ?

comment cached memory wont clearing up
That does not sound like a problem due to the way linux uses ram and cached memory. There really is no reason to clear the cache and how much or little cache you use is dependent on a number of variables including what you are using the machines for. Now if you have poor performance and/or you are using your swap, that could be more problematic, but again it depends on what you are doing. Burning a DVD or virtual machines can use a lot of ram.
