comment Where can I download the newest boot repair disk?
You can get a better answer if you provide more info, like if you mention whether you have separate root and home partitions or not, if you intend to do an upgrade or a fresh install, etc...

comment what is difference between these command?
I remember that in some cases (bash scripts) $HOME/<Some Directory or File> didn't work and I had to use /home/$USER/<Some Directory or File> instead. This is also true for ~/<Some Directory or File> So there must be certain differences where it's advisable to use one and not the other (which I don't know) - am I wrong?

comment Why does a bash-zenity script has that title on Unity Panel and that icon on Unity Launcher?
For the record; to achieve the same result with a Nautilus Script one needs to create a .desktop file like the one above, adding an extra line "NoDisplay=true" - and it might perhaps be a good idea also to hide such "fake application .desktop files".

That's great! Thanks a million. I'm learning many things from this. And it will be perfect if you remove the now redundant TxtGksudo variable line.

I've just tested version 1.3 which looks very neat and professional. But $infinality_current should be replaced with $InfinalityCurrent in the TxtMain variable definition. The second problem which I couldn't figure out and solve is that it seems your implementation of sudo password for Zenity is not functioning, hence no change is effected.

Oh, thank you so much for your help! And I'm also relieved ;-) I did "almost" the same but didn't work, so I thought I was doing something stupid. After all it was only because I used quotes in the .desktop launcher wmclass name. It's solved now :-)

comment Why does a bash-zenity script has that title on Unity Panel and that icon on Unity Launcher?
Thanks, it seems you're right. Both have the same: WM_CLASS(STRING) = "zenity", "Zenity" But I'm just a newbie in scripting, could you please more specific? Should I modify the line starting with im="zenity; how? Insert --class and then... something preceded by "=" (equal sign)??? I don't know if I should make up an arbitrary name here like InfinalitySettings or choose one from a set of available options, if any...

comment Why does a bash-zenity script has that title on Unity Panel and that icon on Unity Launcher?
I wrote this script (mostly borrowed from various sources) and even made a DEB package of it ;-) I merely contains the bash script above located at /usr/local/bin/ and a .desktop file located at /usr/local/share/applications/ which I'll also include in the question now. I now suspect that this might be a Unity and/or Zenity bug probably using the other Zenity desktop file located at /usr/share/applications/???

comment Mounting a new hard drive (sda1) to my existing filesystem
@shank22 : 1) I assumed that you're happy with the existing format of sda1 and would not want to re-format it unless you have a good reason to do so, in which case you should of course use other options for fstab, 2) the existing NTFS format of your sda1 might be more convenient if you intend to use this disk drive from a non-Linux operating system like Windows now or in the future. Otherwise you can of course prefer EXT4 format and perhaps just stick with the defaults in the fstab options.
