comment How to correct Google Earth's “invalid HTTP request” notice?
This worked for me too. Reminds me that sometimes manually installed programs need to be updated.

comment Is there any way to save files when switching to a different version of Ubuntu?
@MrVaykadji Actually it would be 3 upgrades. 12.10, 13.04 (which has reached End of Life) and 13.10. The easiest solution would be to wait until 14.04LTS comes out and then it's a straight upgrade from 12.04LTS. You can view ubuntu Releases and scheduled releases at wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

If you can wait 2 months, then 14,04 will be released which is a LTS and you would be able to upgrade straight from 12.04 to 14.04.

comment Where is usr/local?
@Colton You can view it in Nautilus but you may have to select to show hidden files (Ctrl-H). You do not need to launch Nautilus with sudo (it's actually discouraged to use Sudo for a graphical program) to just view the files. If you need to edit an individual file in nautilus, the right click and select open as administrator. If you need to move system/hidden files in Nautilus, then you should open Nautilus with GKSU (not Sudo), move what you have too and then close it so that you don't unintentionally alter something else while opened as root.

comment Unity on 13.10: Ctrl + Alt resizes the window. How to disable this?
This is not default behaviour on my 13.10. But try going to System Settings > Keyboard and then the Shortcuts tab. Make sure that it's not listed under Custom Shortcuts and then check in Windows to see what Resize Window is listed as and change accordingly.

comment Which OS would be the most compatible?
To create an account for ubuntuforums.org, go to login.ubuntu.com and register. Anytime you want to use the ubuntuforums.org site from then on, then just click the little Login with SSO icon at the top-right of the page there. Ubuntu Forums is preferred over Ask Ubuntu when a discussion is needed. Discussions are discouraged on Ask Ubuntu.
