comment How to use a real partition with Windows 7 installed, in a virtualbox vm?
Why is your MSWIN partition 1TiB? Although, not a complete solution: If possible, move everything that doesn't need to be on there (data...media files?) and then re-size the partition which will make any approach easier. If you wanted to go the image route, clearing then shrinking that partition will leave you with enough space to make a full image of the smaller, new partition. :-)

comment Picking a torrent application for a server
+1 for this being a bad idea. Ignoring the fact that the original question is regarding a server: Transmission comes pre-installed with Ubuntu (Desktop), and there are many reasons why it would be preferable to running μTorrent via some sort of compatibility layer especially as the intention is reliable service!

comment Netbeans all menu fonts are bold after upgrade to 12.04
I think this issue surfaces upon installation/upgrading of WINE as fonts-unfonts-core was selected when upgrading WINE from the official Ubuntu repository's 1.4.* to the official WINE-development repo's 1.7.7 (with Ubuntu 13.04).

comment PPA for Android Studio?
It's listed as an early-access preview so once it's considered stable (in Google terms) it'd be a likely candidate for inclusion in the default repositories alongside the android-tools-* packages.

comment How do I install Psychonauts from the recently released Humble Bundle V?
There is no zip folder nor psychonauts-linux-installer directory. Just psychonauts-linux-05062013-bin (no extension) and inside that: data, guis, meta, and scripts.

comment Rhythmbox is crashing on start
I'm having the same issue but noticed that if the device that my music is stored on is not mounted, Rhythmbox launches normally. Once I mount my music, it's detected then listed in my library and I can use Rhythmbox again. My best guess is that my library got to a certain size that cannot be handled at launch-time. To test this, you could hide/move everything that is in your library then slowly re-introduce it to see at what point this error occurs.
