comment Wired connection (eth0) is working but network manager icon shows no network
@Pilot6 I appreciate the effort to avoid duplications on the site, but aside from restarting the network manager (which is not part of the solution, just a shortcut for a computer restart), I don't see similarities between the proposed solutions.

@Pilot6, not a duplicate. Connection was working fine, just the notification was off.

@Fabby, fair enough, but maybe I should just delete it already.

comment How to remove Gnome desktop from Regular (Unity) Ubuntu 15.04
In order to restore access to your wallpaper through right-clicking, install GNOME Tweak Tool (it's different from the Unity Tweak Tool).

comment Voice audio comes weird and very low with a headphone
Have you tried booting a Live-CD to see if the problem persists? If it does, your headphone jack may be broken.

comment No voice on front headphone port.
Can you tell me what happens when you do a test sound on the Sound Settings window? In my case, whether I press "Front Left" or "Front Right", now I get sound coming out of both speakers.

comment No voice on front headphone port.
I have the same problem. As a workaround, you can try shifting the headphone balance. When I set it all the way left or right, the sound seems OK.

comment 12.04: Is it possible to close windows in “spread mode”?
oh, yeah, that works on 14.04 too. I tried Ctrl+W, Ctrl+Q, but forgot about good old Alt+F4. I apologise for the brain fart. :p

comment 12.04: Is it possible to close windows in “spread mode”?
Thank your for the tip on the middle click. Do you know if there's a keyboard shortcut that does the same thing (closing windows from spread mode, without having to activate it)?

comment How to add a custom program to “Open With” list of programs in Xubuntu 13.04? How to associate a file with a program to open it with?
"Use a custom command" was removed some time ago, I believe before GNOME 3.0.

comment Chromium doesn't show up to be selected as default browser
Still not working from me. I've even substituted all instances of firefox.desktop on that file for google-chrome.desktop.desktop (I'm using Chrome) and Chrome still won't show as an option to open HTML files.

comment How can I download or install all of the dictionaries?
@Pit saved my life. I couldn't understand why I've installed myspell-bt-br but it wasn't shown at /usr/share/myspell/dicts. Turns out pt_BR.dic was at /usr/share/hunspell, even though there is no such package as myspell-pt-br. Go figure.

comment Unable to access software sources
In my 14.04 setup, I couldn't find this package through the Software Center. Had to run sudo apt-get install software-properties-gtk on terminal.

comment How do I install additional drivers?
If you can't see the"Software Sources" (a.k.a. "Software & Updates") icon, install the software-properties-gtk package.

You might have to install it through sudo apt-get install xfce4-systemload-plugin, as I did on Mint.
