comment How do I add or manipulate Application/System Indicators in the login screen?
This one allows me to remove the accessibility (ug-accessibility) and wireless (application) indicators. Between this answer and your previous one, it is now possible to remove every one of the preinstalled indicators.

comment Disable auto-opening nautilus window after auto-mount
This didn't work for me on 15.04 with Unity. The graphical dconf solution did.

comment How do I add or manipulate Application/System Indicators in the login screen?
@ByteCommander, there are four greeter configuration files in my /etc/lightdm: lightdm.conf, lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf, lightdm-gtk-greeter-ubuntu.conf, and lightdm-webkit-greeter.conf. I have no idea what the difference between any of them is, but I did try to disable the login screen clock through each of them, and it didn't work.

Aaa! This is the first thing that I've tried that works! However, I don't see either the wireless or the accessibility indicators present, both of which I want to hide. Would you happen to know where these are?

comment Upgrade to 15.04 breaks deja dup backups to Amazon S3?
Do you have any experience with Python? If so, then you may want to look into manually editing that file to see what's going on (e.g., that's not a data error, that's a failed assertion; you might want to try printing the value of "scheme" to a file or something; also, this is usually a bad idea, but (1) there is a very low probability that anything you do here could actually mess your backup scheme up and (2) you might be able to fix a bug in Deja-Dup itself).

comment How to build libgee (“undefined reference to 'g_get_num_processors'”)?
Why are you installing 0.11? Try 0.18 instead; I compiled it on my first try on a semi-standard Ubuntu system.

comment Cannot run ubuntu on my ASUS K52JB laptop using live usb
That's another reason to think that it's a bug. Chances are that a change introduced between Ubuntu versions created a bug with the way that Ubuntu works with your hardware. You might be able to figure out what's going on by starting the Live CD in "Try Ubuntu" mode, opening a terminal/tty, and using the command-line installer to install it. That method should give you some feedback as to what's going wrong, and from there you can file a bug report, try to work around the issue, or both.

comment How can I encrypt a file with the Serpent encryption algorithm?
Unfortunately, TrueCrypt is no longer maintained, and your answer is obsolete. Additionally, I don't think that TrueCrypt could even encrypt single files in the first place; I was under the impression that it could only do encrypted volumes.
