comment Cannot format memory stick to fat32
@ubfan1: If I mount the disk with sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /media/usbdrive/ -o umask=000, I can create a file at the mount point.

Good point! I see no physical switch, but when I mount the stick, it is root:root with permissions 0755...

comment Grub does not show up at start, cannot select older kernel
Incidentally, if you want grub to always pop up at start, edit /etc/default/grub with sudo, comment the lines starting with GRUB_HIDDEN_, run sudo update-grub, and restart.

You got it, thanks :) . And I love (or hate) how this feels like black magic... The older kernel does not boot either, but that's for another question.

comment Enable/Disable Ubuntu Desktop environment on ubuntu-12.04.1-server-i386
Doesn't sudo refer to echo? Your first sudo echo "manual" >> ... has no permission to write to /etc/init/.

comment What are some GUI clients for Git?
Plus you get command history and the text feedback does not disappear as easily as a dialog.

+1 for learning the command line first. GUIs make it too tempting to "just try that button, reset hard sounds like what I want".

comment avconv uses only the first image in directory
When I try to install ffmpeg, apt-get tells me not to, not available, obsolete, no installation candidate, something something. So I picked avconv. It looks like ffmpeg is still developed, strange that apt-get doesn't have a release available.

comment How do I write an application install shell script?
Plus it's going to run update for every program to install, time-consuming. And it needs sudo.
