comment when i want to install build essential package the result is as below.I am new to ubuntu 12.10 can some one help me out please
Although as muru suggests, it is possible to run old releases, I highly advise against it as they are not supported. More important, they do not get security updates and with the recent bash bug these old systems are quite vulnerable.

comment I sudo'd a bash script, full of sudo apt-get install applicationname commands, and now my programs won't run
I agree with muru that the script is not well written. apt-get will take a package list and I would tend to advise against using wild cards, apt will pull in dependencies and IMO it is best to specify what packages you want. wild cards tend to cause unpredictable results.

comment ubuntu is still NOT stable
This question appears to be off-topic because it is nothing more then a rant, not a request for support

comment ubuntu is still NOT stable
If you do not like Ubuntu, use the alternate OS of your choice. They each have advantages and disadvantages and none are free of bugs. If you want stable, stay with Ubuntu LTS releases, use Debian stable, RHEL, Scientific, RHEL, Slackware, etc. You will also find it much easier if you purchase your next computer with Linux, rather then windows, pre-installed. Good luck to you.

slow is subjective and hardware dependent. Try k/l/xubuntu or identify your hardware.

comment ext4 ACL support in Trusty
It depends on the settings ubuntu uses (and version of ubuntu). Many distros have acl enabled by default. In the past, ubuntu had acl disabled, I am not sure of the current status, but tune2fs will show you.

You would need to use Ubuntu for support here.

comment Xubuntu 14.04 for my laptop
Almost any version will do. k/x/lubuntu , choose the DE you prefer. On older machines I prefer KDE (kubuntu) , YMMV.

comment Can't open gedit in ubuntu 14.04
Welcome to askubuntu.com. I suggest you file a bug report, see askubuntu.com/questions/5121/how-do-i-report-a-bug for details.

comment ext4 ACL support in Trusty
I believe it depends on the file system and how it is configured. You can check with tune2fs -l /dev/your_partition If the file system supports acl (most do) and it is no enabled by default, then you would use fstab.

comment Fedora as LXC container
I suggest you file a bug report against lxc (lxc-create). Hard to know it the bug is with fedora, lxc, or the lxc-create script.

comment Error when modifying rules file in debian packaging
As far as I know, there is no way to do this with spaces. You will have to wait to see if anyone has any other suggestions. The "'" may also be problematic.

comment Error when modifying rules file in debian packaging
In general, IMO it is best to avoid spaces in file names/directories as they cause issues such as this. Try quoting the file name mainproject_1/* "/usr/share/My Company's Folder/MainProjector" or escaping the spaces with a \ mainproject_1/* /usr/share/My Company's\ Folder/MainProject . I am not sure if the "'" is going to be a problem as well. Similar advice.
