Do you just want to wipe out a drive or are you also interested in installing another OS after the wipe?

comment Dropbox does not sync on ubuntu 14.04
What do you mean by "popular Dropbox script"? I can't find anything that looks associated to Dropbox in my /etc/init.d folder.

I'm not the OP, just someone who's also posted an answer to the question. ;)

comment How to get Calc in French
I wasn't aware of that "Use English function names" toggle. Having to remember function names both in English and Portuguese slows my productivity quite a bit sometimes. Made my day! BTW, Excel doesn't have that, does it?

comment Are there any ways to access iCloud-based files with Ubuntu?
I was able to install support.apple.com/kb/DL1455, but for some reason I can't login to iCloud with my Apple ID.

comment How do I stop Unity from remembering search history?
Won't that also disable application and file ranking (i.e., when the Dash lists last-used apps and files first, and improves its partial matching)?

comment How can I change permissions on external drives right after formatting with GParted?
For what it's worth, this seems to be a problem with ext4 (no idea why). If you format it to fa32, for instance, gparted will give it normal user access.

comment How do I discover my socket type?
@Simon, thank you for the important considerations, I'll take a look at my motherboard specs. BTW, would I also likely need a more powerful CPU cooler unit? The target CPU in my case should have a TDP about 20 W higher than the current one.

I was hoping for a Terminal solution, but I guess official information from Intel is just as good, if not better. Thanks!

comment Startup Disk Creator shows no free space on my USB stick
I had the same problem and after several attempts at formatting to different partition formats can confirm that apparently Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator only takes FAT32. That should be very clear at the app's main page.

comment Mac like MultiTouch support
Just a head up for those looking for a solution for newer Ubuntu versions: utouch is not longer available (source: code.google.com/p/touchegg/issues/detail?id=238), so Ubuntu 14.04 users are so far left without a solution.

comment Am I using more than 4 GB on my 32-bit system?
I've actually though about that, but didn't know about the smart way to conduct such a test.

comment Am I using more than 4 GB on my 32-bit system?
Theoretically, I understand it should show 6 GB, but I always assumed it showed less because actual memory space is always a little under the advertised amount. This is my gaming and video-watching rig, so I guess I can leave the GeForce to handle all the graphics; I'll take a look at my BIOS, thanks for the tip.

I do have an Intel onboard. Should I disable it? How?
