What's the blah blah blah? If it doesn't stay on screen long enough to read, can you take a photo and read from that?

comment Cannot login to my account after deleting encrypted ~/Private
So I get you are accessing this hard disk from another PC over USB. But are you booting from it, or from the other PC's system drive? If you're booting from the other PC's system drive, what OS is it, and why would things you are doing on the USB-connected drive affect your ability to login on your other PC? Perhaps you could elaborate.

comment I'm getting a NODATA error when trying to update
Looks like a malformed URL in APT somewhere. OP, can you post your /etc/apt/sources.list?

comment why i why i can't kill viber?
Just a note to others reading this: Some people tend to use kill -9 as their usual method of killing a process, but it is better to try just kill ("TERM" signal) without the -9 first, to give it a chance to do any data cleanups or whatever.

comment Is O_NOATIME safe to ignore?
There is not much remaining software that requires ATIME, but it does exist. Mutt is (was? is it still?) an example as it used it to determine what hadn't been viewed before. As long as it's documented adequately then it's fair for a given filesystem not to support a feature IMHO.

comment What is the easiest way to merge / and /home?
Good answer, but a few notes: --hard-links can be shortened to just -H, -z would not be desirable/effective on local filesystems, and --numeric-ids would not have any effect on a local filesystem (what's in /etc/passwd on other other drive would not have any effect when run locally).

comment Was my SSH server compromised? If so, how, and what steps should I take?
Did you confirm with the auth log? From memory it's /var/log/auth.log - that should show successful and unsuccessful authentication attempts. With the already stated caveat that an attacker could overwrite that, but would be unlikely to do so or have any need do to so.

Prior to running this, did you attempt to manually remove the existing Java support by deleting /usr/java?

comment How to format a drive with Ubuntu on it
Do you understand what formatting is, and that formatting the drive containing Ubuntu would remove Ubuntu and all of your files? And that it cannot be done from within the operating system you are removing?

You cannot ask more than one unrelated question at a time, please open a new question for the second question.
