comment How to permanently assign a different keyboard layout to a USB keyboard?
Just to clear out some misunderstanding, you know that this is just for use with USB keyboards, don't you? The whole idea is that when you plug in a USB Keyboard (that you have pre-defined in the script) the system defines a specific Keyboard Layout (that you have pre-defined in the script) for that USB keyboard. So it shouldn't interfere with anything else in the system. I have no idea how such a problem as making wireless keyboard and mouse stop can possibly be associated with this script. As a last resort you can remove all traces of this script, and the system should be OK without it.

Why not try using PPA instead? See: m.webupd8.org/2014/03/…

comment 15.04: Ugly icons in the Launcher
I personally keep a simple shell script to replace a number of odd icon filenames with a alternative icons -- as close as I can get in my favorite icon theme. A simple example might be: sudo sed -i 's/Icon=odd-text-editor-icon/Icon=text-editor/g' "/usr/share/applications/odd-text-editor.desktop"

comment Linux mint 17.1 libgtk
If you would like to try Gnome Shell, it would be easier to go this way: ubuntugnome.org -- especially considering that Ubuntu is based on Debian and Gnome, with Unity Desktop Environment, and Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu, with Cinnamon Desktop Environment ;-)

comment WD Passport external HD connected but not recognized
Probably it's got a problem with the USB cable or worse the hard disk, although it's new.

I understand; I just wanted to add a note how to modify this in case only usernames are required - UpVoted ;-)

comment How to list users with UIDs higher than 10?
This lists all usernames followed by a column and UID. However this lists usernames only: awk -F: '{if ($3 > 10) {print $1}}' /etc/passwd

comment Hard time to have a System Image backup and using Clonezilla Live
1) Why don't you use an external (e.g. USB) hard drive to keep your System Image Backups as a safer alternative? 2) You say your root partition is sdb5 and your home partition is sdb7, and then you say you try to make a backup of your Ubuntu 14.04 which is on sdb2. Can you clarify this? 3) Please add additional info or modify info in your question by editing it, and answering it, which is confusing for other users.

OK, done. Vertex (I'm currently using Vertex-Light at ~/.themes) is probably the most perfect and %100 complete theme around but unfortunately has a complicated "compiling" procedure...

comment How to install a GTK theme on Ubuntu 15.04?
This is strange. Perhaps you can also test using a more straightforward theme like this to help identify the cause: gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Azure?content=168843

Are there any other themes under ~/.themes listed in Unity Tweak Tool? A permissions issue maybe? Perhaps you can test by copying this fully functional theme to that location: gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Vertex+-+Theme?content=166318
