comment NetworkManager tray (nm-applet) is gone after upgrade to 14.04 Trusty
I have the same issue, but the page linked in Guest's answer doesn't help. I use xfce4 in ubuntu 14.04 and did see the network manager applet icon in the notification area after first upgrading to 14.04, but a couple of days later it disappeared. I'm guessing it must be an update I applied after upgrading to 14.04. nm-applet and NetworkManager are both running, and if I edit /usr/share/applications/gnome-network-panel.desktop to say OnlyShowIn=GNOME;XFCE; then run gnome-control-center network I can connect to wireless networks, and the nm-applet bubbles pop

comment How do you completely shut down Ubuntu One?
"We are sorry to notify you that we will be shutting down the Ubuntu One file services, effective 1 June 2014". Seems like Canonical figured out how to shut down Ubuntu One for you. :)

comment Screen brightness not changing on Acer 5742 notebook
I'm glad I posted this because the hard drive failed and was replaced. Now I need to fix the brightness problem again. I'll try just editing the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line in /etc/default/grub and running 'sudo update-grub'.

comment Braid, Bastion showing black polygons
I found this question and answer by googling "ubuntu bastion black", and your apt-get command fixed the problem for me. Bravo!
