comment How can I reset Compiz settings to default?
Maybe you should revise this answer as per your comment above... I used to see Ubuntu's default background for one or two seconds on startup. Removing ~/.compiz and ~/.config/compiz-1 got rid of this problem as well (although I still see it after logoff and login). Thanks :-)

Please do this so that I can legitimately "accept" it as the answer ;-)

Yes, I can confirm this now, kos. It doesn't happen under Ubuntu 14.10 / Nautilus 3.10! At first I said to myself, "it can't be" but it seems I was mistaken unfortunately :-( Thank you very much for your effort anyway, which was helpful.

Thank you kos, I understood the point you're making when I first read it actually. What I didn't understand was how come this didn't happen to me before although I've been using this configuration since I don't remember when ;-) Nautilus must be able to tell what's a symlink and what's a real file/directory and move it to the Trash folder there. I'll test this with a live USB session of Ubuntu 14.10...

But I don't understand, I've been using this configuration for a long time now and I don't think this is the first time I'm trying to delete a file in this way... How come I've never had this problem??? My guess is perhaps the system merely accepted them as files on my Data partition and put them in that Trash folder... Perhaps I should make a bug report about this then?

comment can't move files to trash without any permission issues
Thanks, but is this suggestion still valid given this: "no problem with files in my Home folder, including sub-folders like Public not symlinked to my Data partition" (which should I guess show that there are no ownership or permission problems)? BTW my Trash folder is owned by me with "rw" permissions for me and my group as well as "r" permissions for others -- which should be more than enough, if not too much ;-)

comment unable to edit /etc/hosts file in ubuntu 14.10
You can try starting your computer using a live USB/DVD/CD (preferably using Ubuntu or one of the derivatives) and then editing that hosts file with root privileges from there.

comment Spotify for Ubuntu
I suggest you copy (or even move) this answer to askubuntu.com/questions/7489/… as this offers a clearer and up-to-date solution. BTW it also worked for Ubuntu 14.10 ;-)

comment Log Out problem after upgrading from 13.04 to 13.10
@DavidFoerster : Yes, in the sense that the answer is the same - as I've stated - although the question is quite different ;-)
