comment How do I disable middle mouse button click paste?
Added to my comment: after using EasyStroke for a while, I've found that it often fails to block the middle click. Since I haven't been using the gestures, I am abandoning this program for xinput.

comment How do I disable middle mouse button click paste?
Thanks from the future for that tip. At first, I was going to just use xinput to disable it totally, and not need to run some extra program, but EasyStroke made it possible to set groups where I could disable the middle button for certain apps (my editor, mainly), and add gestures to certain other apps and using the middle button. So far, works well (14.04 Gnome fallback).

I have the same system. I downloaded Unity Tweak Tool and wasted time looking at every setting, but there was no such setting. Perhaps you meant "Tweak Tool", which is, I think, Gnome Tweak Tool. It has a setting, although it doesn't seem to work.

comment Simple image editor?
@Sergey: I'm still using shotwell after all these years, and if I need more, I use gimp. I'm pretty familiar with gimp now, so even though it's overkill, I like it because it does just about everything.

comment Could not resolve hostname 123.45.67.890
That address is an example - 1234567890 - to represent your actual ip address. Go to your server and find the correct ip address. If you don't know about this, perhaps you need to learn some more background first before you set it up.

comment Command-line to list DNS servers
By the way, nmcli dev show doesn't work for 14.04. That's the version I have, so I can't speak for future versions

comment Command-line to list DNS servers
It still works for me using 14.04. You do need to add the device at the end, of course (ie, eth0, eth1, or whatever device you are using).

comment Upgrade dual boot windows
There is a Ubuntu issue, though. Windows will almost certainly need to be reinstalled from scratch. But doing that will, of course, wipe out the grub boot record, so the OP will need to be aware of this, and be prepared to restore the dual-boot capabilities (and to avoid wiping out the Ubuntu installation accidentally).

comment How to copy a file from USB drive
First thing you need to do is to show what command line you used to generate that error. Otherwise, nobody can tell you what you might be doing wrong. It may be a simple syntax error.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 does not work
Also, did you install proprietary driver previously? I think you may want to uninstall, then reinstall with new version, as it depends on the kernel version.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 connects to Wi-Fi in some locations only
Comparing Ubuntu, the OS, to your laptop, a computer, offers no usable information. You should specify the computer that is running Ubuntu, and what type of wireless adaptor it has. For example, if wireless-G, it won't connect to wireless N. Or if single band, it won't connect to 5 GHz or above.

comment Is Ubuntu still installing I'm not sure using VirtualBox
Sorry, you are correct; for some reason, I thought I had read something about a CD; I added it at the end, without checking. If you had burned a CD, or USB thumbdrive, you could boot from that, run Ubuntu, and not write anything to the hard disk. But on a CD, you can't save anything; on a USB drive, you could.
