I use Ubuntu as my primary operating system and absolutely love it. I am also a software developer fluent in C++, PHP, and somewhat-fluent in Python.

comment Running Android Emulator through Qemu on Lubuntu
The screenshots will still be helpful for someone trying to run an x86 image in a PowerPC environment. I'm unfortunately not aware of any PowerPC Android builds.

comment Running Android Emulator through Qemu on Lubuntu
Would it be possible to see a screenshot of Qemu launcher? That might help pinpoint the problem. Also, you may already be aware of this, but the G4 uses a PowerPC processor and the Android image you downloaded is intended for running on x86-based processors. Therefore emulation will be incredibly slow. You may have to wait 30-40 minutes for Android to boot.

Yes, but then all of my environment variables would be lost.

You can sometimes "accidentally" get this by using cat on a binary file.

comment Kindly explain me this code of increment decrement operator
I just explained how each operator works. I tested your snippet in 14.04 and I get the expected outcome as I've described.

comment Kindly explain me this code of increment decrement operator
This would probably be better suited for Stack Overflow. That being said, appending ++ is called postfix increment and returns the original value of the variable, not including the increment. Prepending ++ is called prefix increment and will return the value of the variable after increment. Therefore, the first assignment becomes: i=10+11;.

comment Ubuntu Touch Emulator not working
I have a quad-core AMD A8 processor and 8GB of RAM, and I waited about 30 minutes for the display to come up. Nothing happened.

I can't seem to figure out how to tag the bug report. But anyway, here is a link to it: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/qtdeclarative-opensource-src/…

Would you like me to file a bug on LP?

Thanks. Are there any implications of using an older version of QtWebKit? (The latest version is 3.0.)

Copying-and-pasting your code results in this: i.stack.imgur.com/MICdj.png I didn't mention it in the question, but I'm using Trusty. This might be a bug.

comment Can I run the Ubuntu SDK in Windows?
This is correct - the Ubuntu UI QML components depend on a binary plugin that would be very difficult to compile on Windows (since it has a number of external dependencies).

comment Ubuntu Touch Emulator not working
I have 8GB of RAM and well over 100GB of free disk space so that's certainly not an issue. I am running Trusty (though I'm not sure about the OP), so that shouldn't be a problem either.

comment How to run GUI applications remotely on a headless server?
@user3344830 Are you sure Xming is running? There should be an icon in the system tray. Sometimes closing PuTTY and opening it and trying again helps.

I assume that "access via PuTTY" refers to SSH access.

This isn't necessarily true. You can use X11 forwarding to run graphical applications locally. Installing a VNC server would work, but would waste resources by running X11 on the server.
