comment Let Xorg listen on TCP, but only to localhost?
Yes!! I had been looking for a way to make xserver-allow-tcp=true after X had already been started with -nolisten tcp in /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc without restarting. Only in my case, bind=0.0.0.0 to allow my external hosts.

comment ntfs-3g Failed to decompress file
1. "How, specifically, can this fix be deployed into Ubuntu 14.04?". 2. Yes, awaiting 15.04 release in April.... however for some workstations & servers there is no possibility of such an upgrade anytime soon. 3. Thanks for responding, but no mucking around with build-essentials allowed in most situations. Hence no source tarballs, etc.

comment ntfs-3g Failed to decompress file
Not to mention, that /var/log/syslog files form with errors like above piling up hundreds of lines per second, quickly consuming gigabytes and bringing the Linux side of the server to a screeching halt. Originating processes may be hard to track, but typically I'd suspect mlocate, clamd, smbd,...can't blame them for scanning dir structures though.

comment cairo-dock icons degrade to question marks over time
@Mike Nope,never got resolved. Tried many experiments,including the suggestion of switching themes. Nowadays I use (lighter?) Docky under 14.04 w/Gnome.....until it crashes and disappears altogether, and doesn't seem to take new shortcuts via dragNdrop. Comparing with Windows: RocketDock, which just WORKS.

comment Converting logical partition to primary partition
I too am looking for a convenient way to do this from Linux. Sadly, GParted does not have this yet. Many Partition tools for Windows make this a breeze. In the past I've had to hand-edit C/H/S partition table boundaries and the Type field, all in binary--just to "trick" the OS while keeping all actual data in place--but I prefer to not have to still do it this way.
