comment How to kill a process that I know it freezes my ubuntu?
@sop If console switching is broken then the system is in a hard hang (either a full stall or kb input is being ignored = Xorg crash), if thats the case, its worth researching why the program is crashing or at the very least sandboxing it to avoid taking down the whole system. I will edit the answer to address basic sandboxing

comment Ubuntu 14.04 LTS: Installed Ubuntu on latest Virtualbox 4.3.20. After login, I can only see blank screen. I am completely new to Ubuntu. What do I do?
At the very least, you can try basically what is suggested on quora, open a terminal (ctrl-alt-t) and start nautilus by typing nautilus and see if you get a windows-explorer looking window to browse the hard-drive. You can also attempt to avoid loading the graphics-heavy components by selecting ubuntu-classic (or gnome-2d) when logging in (click on the little ubuntu sign next to your user name on the login screen and it will give you options) to check if it boots fine into that.

Could you please post a screenshot? Depending on the DE you chose (most likely Unity), the desktop may be rather empty immediately after install. ctrl-alt-t will open a shell (verify this works). The fact that you could login from a graphical shell means the DM is installed properly. Otherwise open up ubuntu software center by typing software-center into the terminal you opened with ctrl-alt-t and start installing whatever you need.

comment Why does sudoers only allow me to set NOPASSWD for ALL?
even though the web application is extremely secure and there isn't an obvious way anyone could execute arbitrary commands. Famous last words :D
