My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I have some understanding in hardware and other complicated things but it is my believe that an OS has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

Did you try it? My version here obviously is compiled without asynctssupport (it spits out Unrecognized option asyncts).

To stop you from murdering somebody: there is an option -async. See askubuntu.com/questions/227497/…

comment How to upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10 instead of 14.04
See askubuntu.com/questions/91815/… but it is not recommended! 12.04 LTS is still supported, 12.10 is not.

You can't normalize without re-encoding, at least the levels...

What applications are affected? Is this only happening in Chrome, or do you have that issue also in AbiWord or an editor?

comment Files impossible to wipe, where are they saved?
So you want to be 100% sure that all those files are unrecoverably gone, or do you need to recover some of these files? From what we can see you wiped unused drive space but your files were still located in a space appearing to be used in the filesystem.

comment very new to ubuntu confused on downloading, says I don't have repository,
If you are new to Ubuntu it is strongly recommended you install the latest version - e.g. 14.04 LTS for long term support (or the brand new 14.10. which will only be supported for a short time until 15.04 comes out next year). Ubuntu 13.04 has reached end of life and is no longer supported.

comment cannot access hard disk usb from virtualbox guest with winows 7 on ubuntu host
Oh - and the USB drive has to be mounted in Ubuntu first before it can be used from the VM (it will be automatically unmounted from the host while accessed from the guest).
