comment How to find out where iptables rules come from?
The question is asking how to tell who or what created the rules. If that requires the dpkg command you should probably edit your answer to include that

Does this still work? If so, could you build packages for more recent Ubuntu versions please? :)

But does that answer the question who put them there?

comment Change color of active terminal in terminator
That's a start, but you didn't say what colors. Do you want the active one to be one color and the inactive another or something else?

comment Change color of active terminal in terminator
Can you be more specific? Do you mean different terminal windows or different sections of a split window? You want the colour to change to something random every time it receives focus?

comment No longer loading Ubuntu
You're still not giving us much information to go on. How did you get Ubuntu on the new HDD? Cloning? Fresh install? Please boot a liveCD and run a SMART test, editing your question with the results. Thanks!

comment Get the next release code name via command line
@ThomasW. It will still work if the codename hasn't been announced. I assume the daily builds are started very soon after release. As I said in the answer, there is no "good" way of doing this that I am aware of. Still looking for better ideas though.
