comment How do I find my network IP address, netmask, and gateway info?
@ThomasW. - Thanks for that info, but TBH, I personally think that there is such a thing as too much information. The question was pretty simple, and I gave a simple answer using what information I knew would work. I'm really not knowledgeable enough to "support" your information; also, I think anyone who is would know their gateway address and would not be trying to find out this information.

@Shubh , I know; I'll add that caveat to the answer to stop future comments about it.

comment SSH into a machine and then launch an interactive command line program
Once you ssh into a machine, any program you run is executed on the remote machine. If you want to run a GUI program, you can use ssh -X (or Y); note that is uppercase for both. The remote machine needs to have X-windows running to run an X-windows app, but that's it. Or am I missing something?

comment Ecryptfs and *huge* .Private directories
That's probably your encrypted disk files, so you would probably need to check space using normal disk tools that understand the encryption, and delete files there. I personally avoid things like this, so I can't give any details.

comment Where to save files and install software in a full install usb
So, Ubuntu was installed to the pen drive? I don't really understand your actual question, so perhaps you can edit to make it more clear what you want to accomplish.

comment Microsoft Office to Libre Office without change it settings
But that's not really proving the data is saved, since Microsoft Office probably has the same defaults no matter what version it is. If those defaults can all be changed on one system, then it would be a better test. Also, if every setting could be explicitly saved before opening with OO, so it's not relying on any defaults at all, that would also be a good test. Of course, we know MS Office has no bugs, so that's not the issue. ;-)

comment Microsoft Office to Libre Office without change it settings
@Rmano: Are you quite sure that all the default values are stored in the document, and not just the ones that were explicitly changed? I can't say for sure, but it seemed to me, just from my own casual observations in the past, that settings were changed from Windows to Linux for such things as table margins, etc. I didn't really have time or the will to investigate further, though, so if you know for sure, I'd be interested.

comment Microsoft Office to Libre Office without change it settings
LibreOffice is just a fork of OpenOffice, because OpenOffice is not really supported now, IIRC. But the OpenOffice format is the same for both, ie, Libre Office uses Open Office format natively. Most Open Office developers moved to Libre when Oracle took it over, and it is not maintained as well now.

comment Zoom a Single Window
Sorry, I started to write a comment, but didn't mean to enter it, but when I switched to Compiz Configuration tool, it entered the partial comment. I thought there was a plugin that did this, but found it only zooms out, but not in (shelf). And it will maximize certain windows, but not zoom in. The zoom in plugin zooms entire desktop, although it has an option to zoom the focused window to fill the screen, an could be a work around.
