comment Stuck while installing WhatsApp on Ubuntu
this is likely some sort of hack someone built, or unofficially using the watsapp api (which whatsapp is very protective of - they even ban users using 3rd party clients) why anyone would ever spend money on this is a mystery - I would ask for the money back.

comment Is there a bluetooth adapter driver for Ubuntu 14.04?
did you check in sound settings to switch output devices - you can then hit "test sound" on devices - if it is paired you should be able to select it from the list i.stack.imgur.com/v1C8Y.png

comment Where can I buy a ubuntu phone for the US?
and the meizu does 2g only in the US (unlike the what the article states) , I got one. (only through a friend that then shipped it), and you can always get a nexus 4 on ebay and flash it (as that is the official device for development)

comment Is it possible to replace Windows with Ubuntu on the Intel Compute Stick that has Windows pre-installed?
they say it is possible, but from the looks of it the dirvers are not provided in a public space(no wifi), thus you need to manually contact manufactures to obtain or use a unofficial image for ubuntu - not worth the hassle - also voids the warranty from what I read.

comment can't even get started, really frustrated
the dvd's actually work better, I always advocate using them over a usb - even though it is more convenient to use usb - the process of burning a dvd, and booting from them is simpler

ubuntu-desktop is a meta package, the system will be fine without it - uninstalling it simply uninstalls that meta package

comment Ultimate-media-downloader app not install
Since you paid for it you should probably contact the developer directly: keshavbhatt.github.io/ultimate-vedio-downloader as many of us probably won't buy an app just to try getting it working for you, or contact Canonical for a refund or help on the purchase.
