comment Mouse cursor invisible after 15.04 update
Mind explaining what restarting lightdm does? Does it really "blank out" your screen (it did to me)? (I was hoping I could get my mouse pointer back without restarting because there's a lot I'm working on. So I tried this out and it blanked out my screen. Ended up doing a manual restart. Is that really supposed to happen?)

comment /run/network/ifstate keeps getting reset on reboot
Aw. That explains a lot. That is certainly an option but is there a way for me to configure what gets written into ifstate on boot? A month or so back I can disconnect from interfaces via network manager but not so now, presumably because of ifstate.

comment Headphone jack not working?
Just a note. I set pulseaudio not to auto respawn as I was trying various fixes to this problem. When I rebooted my system, the problem seemed to persist (speakers good, headphones not). When I realized that pulseaudio isn't even working, I reset it to auto respawn and rebooted. And yay! I have my headphones back!

comment How could Rhythmbox deal with multiple-disc albums
After two days, manual seems to be the best way to deal with my problems (for now). Also, I did not know that you can edit MP3 metadata in Rhythmbox. That seems to make EasyTAG redundant. Or not? Why should I keep it installed?

comment What's the difference if I use Windows 7 as a Standard User vs if I use ubuntu?
I agree with the reasons except for the small user-base. While the claim is sound, even provable, no one should be banking on that. You never know what malware creators consider as "juicy".

@fossfreedom, that would be much appreciated though I'll hang out a bit to see if better suggestions come along.

comment How could Rhythmbox deal with multiple-disc albums
@fossfreedom, I've seen that but I think this is different in that my case is actually same album but different disc numbers (disc 1 vs disc 2).

@wilf Yes unfortunately. I've tried manually adding the disc number in the given field hoping for some magic but nada.
