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Unfortunately, TrueCrypt is no longer maintained, and your answer is obsolete.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.

comment Cannot run ubuntu on my ASUS K52JB laptop using live usb
This is almost certainly the result of a problem with the way Ubuntu interacts with a specific piece of hardware on your laptop. In this case, there is little that you can do except to file a bug report and try to install a derivative, such as Lubuntu. If you can get Lubuntu onto your machine, then you should be able to at least provide some debugging information, and possibly even install ubuntu-desktop.

comment can't install boot repair
What does this have to do with the question? In the majority of cases (including this one), apt-get functions exactly the same regardless of where your current working directory is.

comment Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears
The fact that this is problem so common and long-lasting is, to me, rather disturbing. Does anyone know why this keeps happening, and what's causing it?
