comment How to show dashboard for Micrmax 353G in ubuntu 12.04?
I don't know how to do any better than what you suggested,(subtract total used from max available). Not a perfect answer I will admit but at least it gives you an idea of your monthly usage. :)

Yeah everything show up as zeros for me initially as well, you don't get readings until vnstat runs for a little bit to populate its database. So your first monthly total will only be from the time you installed vnstat.

comment Configuring Samba to allow Use of CUPS printer
You can require authentication in cupsd.conf, by setting AuthType Basic and Require user, in the appropriate sections you want to be authenticated. I haven't needed authenticated printing on windows though, so I haven't tried it out yet.

comment Samba and User Acount Passwords
Are you restarting the samba services after making changes to the config file? Do you have valid users = Family in smb.conf under the share section? If your still having trouble it might be best to start another question with more detail: smbd error messages that pop up in /var/log/auth.log, and how you set up samba possibly with the dump of your config file as well testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf....(which also tests smb.conf syntax).

comment Samba and User Acount Passwords
If you add a user to the system (sudo adduser kevin for example) you need to give them a password as well, this is the password that will be required for that user to access a share. Change password with sudo passwd kevin. Does that help?

comment double-click does not open the default program
I don't think so, I have an entry in both spots. Just to clarify, this is happening with all .tex files? What program are you creating them in?
