comment How do I deal with “unauthenticated sources” errors in the Software Center?
@NaveedAli This is strange... Maybe you have this directory already, maybe you can just skip this step and move on to the last two commands... Or you can try "sudo nautilus", go to "/var/lib/apt/lists" and create directory "partial" there...

@NaveedAli Are you sure you entered the command correctly, beginning with sudo and your user password to gain admin privileges?

comment How to move a whole Ubuntu system
Clonezilla might be the solution for this task (if you're interested in exploring deeper), but I agree with the comment above that reinstalling Ubuntu might be simpler unless you have a highly customized system.

And finally I can recommend making a backup of your disk before such a radical operation, for example using clonezilla.

comment Repartitioning Linux for Windows
If sda1 is your current /boot partition that has to go at least when installing Windows because it will definitely require using it. The new partition to be created between currant sda1 and sda2 will be the main location for Windows installation though. So you should better keep all the other partitions to be able to continue using your current system in addition to Windows. Your current swap partition is the Linux version of Windows page file and you should better keep it as well.

comment Should /var/log be on an hdd partition when / is on an ssd?
I think it might be a good idea to expand this a little bit to also list any other directories under root which are recommended to be located in a non-SSD partition.

comment My struggle with Adobe Flash EXE files as a new Ubuntu User
I meant the "Accepted Answer" (askubuntu.com/a/106240/47343) to the question I've linked, or even another answer there (askubuntu.com/a/223981/47343) might perhaps be helpful to this end, and I'm not claiming to be an expert in any of the areas involved here ;-)

comment How to create a shortcut for Minecraft like in Windows?
@jay_t55 : You're welcome, please don't be put off by people who are not patient enough towards ex-Windows users who have newly begun using Ubuntu/Linux and who naturally might have difficulties from time to time in discovering this new world with all its pros and cons ;-)

comment How to create a shortcut for Minecraft like in Windows?
I also notice this strange behavior sometimes, which is perhaps rooted in Gnome or Debian or even Linux (I'm just making an uneducated guess here). The way a symbolic link is treated does not seem consistent system-wide (all apps behaving in the same way) at the moment.

comment How can one shutdown a PC using the keyboard?
I can't think of a scenario where I would miss that dialog, as I have ctrl+alt+backspace to logout and the session menu item to restart.

I don't even see that shutdown dialog, probably because I've disabled it in dconf-editor, so it's definitely the quickest way available for me.

"Need to be root" for this command, which is not a very quick way ;-)
