comment How do I get HTML5 h.264 Video working on Firefox?
On 15.04, do you actually have the html5 youtube player working? For me, the video plays, but no sound. I have all of the mentioned packages installed. Using FF 38.

comment How to connect to Wi-Fi AP through WPS?
Don't know why this is being downvoted - it's a practical solution to the main reason this question is useful - that is "I don't know the WIFI password, but I have WPS access, how can I connect?" +1 This also work on android, with a root-mode file explorer, you can check the passwords in /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf.

comment How to fix “sudo: unable to open … Read-only file system”?
But... -M will skip mounted file systems, including /dev/sda1 (or what ever mounted drive includes /var/lib/sudo/... ). @MarkKramer: I highly recommend always setting the root password when installing linux, with sudo su; passwd. Then you can use su -c fsck -Af -M.

comment Adding OCR info to a PDF
This is really great, thank you. However, it appears to modify the images, looks like it runs an unsharp mask over them or something. Is there a way to leave the images exactly as they previously were? In my particular instance, the filter even managed to remove the bar from a couple of fractions in some equations. Everything else works pretty well though...

comment Peer To Peer (P2P) Sync and Share Ubuntu
Are you sure that this isn't a paid advertisement? Also, I can't see anywhere that says that this is P2P. If it's not, it doesn't answer the question. If it is P2P, then what are you paying $10/month for??

comment How can I reduce the file size of a scanned PDF file?
This is the right answer for this question (compressing a pdf that is mostly bitmap data). I found that the screen setting was too low quality for me, but ebook worked well, cutting a 33Mb scan-based PDF down to 3.6Mb, and keeping it very readable. Other options for the -dPDFSETTINGS option are listed here: milan.kupcevic.net/ghostscript-ps-pdf, and it might be a good idea to include them in this answer.
