I Like to build and repair computers. I have both a Cubieboard, and Raspberry Pi. I also enjoy refinishing wood furniture.

I like using the terminal, writing basic shell scripts, and sometimes even installing from source :)

Everything I say(type) is not related to anything,
nor does it represent any entity.
The words belong not to anyone.

at least for drives: askubuntu.com/questions/70867/… and I can think of a way by making a custom launcher for a hidden folder that might work ;) sit tight for a bit.

comment What is preventing the open source community from improving Ubuntu / GNOME aesthetics (margins, padding, positioning)?
must be from the "beta" (actually looks more like 12.04 when I look at it - they changed out the file icon) I'm not seeing most of those problems on my install - some of the "firefox" ones might remain but that is application specific (they do their own thing, they don't even use the overlay scrollbars)

something looks wrong with your install, have you changed the "scale" in display settings?

yeah, hopefully it will give you enough time to get the important stuff off ;) before the extra sectors run out

These are signs that your hard-drive is dying. Promptly try to get important data off and replace it.

comment Files being destroyed without consent
hm, what format are you using for the file system, are these drives shared with a windows computer/ dual boot(if so do you use hibernate on windows). and how do you remove the drive from ubuntu (i.e. eject, safely remove, from the file manager or the launcher)

How do you transport the drives, at any time have they been dropped, left in the heat/cold, near magnets?

What does the screen look like? Is it the normal login box for steam or is it a command line box trying to update drivers?

comment Why do I see two network indicators in Ubuntu 14.04?
Try that command, something must have pulled it in as a dependency in the update.

and a duplicate: askubuntu.com/questions/364717/two-wifi-icons-in-panel - basically installing unity8 will give you the extra one so do sudo apt-get remove indicator-network
