comment Ralink RT3290 wifi drops every 5 minutes
If it works when plugged in (ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1597874) but not when on battery the power saving feature may be causing disconnects.

what does file /etc/alternatives/vi say? What is in the vimrc? Is there anything about set encoding=utf-8?

comment Another user's home folder deleted while using adduser?
The file /etc/adduser.conf of Ubuntu 14.04 has the following commented line. #NAME_REGEX="^[a-z][-a-z0-9_]*\$" So a username must start with a character and may contain dashes, numbers and underscores. No help unless it was edited. Perhaps some other program somewhere did something like cp --remove-destination /etc/skel /home/user_1

comment How to make user home folder after account creation?
@iridescent Thanks for your testing. The hint about the shell is helpful. I think your description of the two cases is almost complete but unintentionally misleads a bit by describing "the only way" at the end. Indeed, the home directory must be specified in /etc/passwd. This is independent of /home having a <username> directory on disk, preventing mkhomedir_helper from completing. A quick rm -rf /home/<username> should allow mkhomedir_helper <username> to complete the tasks manually performed by the @Zenexer script below.

I think that would result in a different userid and groupid which may or may not be a problem for you.

comment Problem with adduser on new install
Thanks @muru for this precise answer. Also after reading your suggestion, looking in /etc/sudoers on my 12.04 system the default group "admin" is for gaining root privileges while the default group "sudo" is more powerful and can execute any command. It should be similar on 14.04 and can easily be checked.

comment vim command does not work
default update-alternatives command modifies symbolic links in /etc/alternatives. The way the packages install by default might have changed.

comment Unable to boot after update
On unknown block? How odd. The 12.04 precise [kernel][1] has a [changelog][2] that shows no recent ext3 changes. Acpi has tripped me up in the past on certain machines with certain disks. One of the items listed just after this line should contain the answer: linux (3.2.0-65.98) precise; urgency=low down to Tue, 10 Jun 2014 15:08:47 -0400 [1]: packages.ubuntu.com/source/precise/linux [2]: changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/pool/main/l/linux/…
