comment how to speed up search for locally installed applications in dash in Ubuntu 13.10?
Great detailed answer! For me deleting most of the scopes sped up the search a lot (from taking several seconds when typing "Text Editor" to almost instantaneously)! Even though I previously already had turned off the online search results (that brought almost no speedup).

comment Intermittently Won't Boot - Black Screen With Blinking Cursor - 12.04
Turns out the ..apic stuff was not helping at all for me. In my case it was the login manager having a race condition, see here: askubuntu.com/a/350857/38837

Having a completely different graphics card (AMD Radeon HD 7870) I think it was the noapic parameter which seems to have fixed it for me now - hoping that it really doesn't appear anymore now ;)!

comment How do I free up disk space?
While the above command is certainly useful, it will not, as stated, remove old kernels. That has to be done either manually or with additional tools like Ubuntu Tweak.

comment How to browse the files on my Samsung Galaxy Discover?
If you look at this discussion: bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=159184, installing kio-mtp should be enough. Don't have KDE installed at the moment (just plain Ubuntu 12.10 with Unity), and am still struggling with this, kio-mtp doesn't seem to be available in ubuntu 12.10...

comment Ubuntu 12.10 No Wifi after updates
what wifi card do you have? You can find out by typing the command lspci into the command line and then pressing enter. In the output, look for a line with "Network controller" and include that in your post. Had a very similar problem with my "Broadcom Corporation BCM4313" today...
