comment forward slash to search in evince removed with upgrade to 14.04
On the face of it it works, but in evince it gets stuck in a repeating loop on one page. The GNOME decisions to remove functionality really piss me off - the notion that interfaces are ever going to be consistent is completely at odds with the fact that now every web designer adds inconsistencies on every web page (and to this question, are using / to search, not ctrl-shift-alt-F3-F7-Super-G).

Perfect. One can also unmount the drive from the right-click menu.

comment How to get full rights in Ubuntu to manipulate a file that is owned by root
gedit can't do any file manipulations (beyond creating and editing) - and rightly so, it's a text editor!

comment How to get full rights in Ubuntu to manipulate a file that is owned by root
A file manager is not innately more dangerous than a command line. rm -rf / home/bar/my_dir being the classic. I wonder if nautilus puts /usr into the recycle bin :) Still, I don't see much alternative if the OP wants to do all the file manipulations in a gui with root privileges.
