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

Some links:

  • 2buntu - community blog that I sometimes contribute to
  • NitroShare - a cross-platform network file transfer utility
  • REST Easy - Firefox add-on for analyzing HTTP responses

comment Are there other applications beside Nitroshare to send files between computers on the same LAN?
Note: As of NitroShare 0.3.0, this limitation no longer applies. NitroShare can now transfer files of any size.

comment How to properly install GO on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Do you need the latest version of Go? It's far easier to install Go from the archive - sudo apt-get install golang.

comment How to set python 3 as default interpreter in ubuntu 14.4
Why do you want to do this? There may be a better way to accomplish whatever it is you're trying to do. Changing the default Python interpreter is generally not a good idea...

comment Have to restart laptop to make internet work again
Could you please tell us the make and model of your computer? It would also be helpful if you could provide us with the model number of the wireless network adapter you are using.

comment Transferring files from Ubuntu PC to Ubuntu laptop
NitroShare author here - just a slight word of warning. That PPA builds packages for a version that is still under development, so some of the features are still being finalized. It does work though. Windows builds are here.

comment Multiple desktop question, i.e. :0, :1
Note to close-voters: this question is not necessarily off-topic. It appears the OP is trying to run two separate login sessions simultaneously. There is nothing in this question to suggest that the OP is not using Ubuntu.

I wonder if multiseat would work around that limitation...

What exactly is the problem you are trying to solve? Do you want to change the item in the boot menu that is selected by default?

comment Apt-get 403 Forbidden, but accessible in the browser
For the curious, this means uncommenting the ppa.launchpad.net line in /etc/squid-deb-proxy/mirror-dstdomain.acl.d/10-default.

comment How to add some padding between a ListView and its footer?
This is what I tried. The major difference is that I didn't specify a height for the footer component - I'd prefer not to hardcode a height value since it will cut off content if it is larger than the specified value.

comment How to add some padding between a ListView and its footer?
@Sylvain: sorry, I forgot to reply. I tried your suggestion but still could not get it to work. I ended up using a transparent rectangle to add padding. I'm not at a computer at the moment, but when I am, I'll add a comment to your answer and explain what I ended up doing.

comment apt-get remove libstdc++-4.8-doc | 101MB will be freed?
"Which means there are 9,891 kB of deb archives will be downloaded" close, but in your example nothing will be downloaded since it already exists in the APT cache.

Is there any way to persistently set sspmode to 0 so I don't have to run that command every reboot?

comment Display audio metadata while streaming music over A2DP?
Interestingly, the Bluetooth adapter I have came with a utility for Windows that displays this information in a little popup window that sits next to the taskbar.
