comment Unread indicator for Slack Chrome App
Great work, thanks so much. My team just started using Slack out of the blue yesterday, and I was so annoyed that there was no integrated app for Ubuntu.

comment Lenovo Ideapad s10-3 Wireless Disabled Problem
Or if you don't want to open the case, I suppose the workaround described in that same bug report might work for some folks: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/577114

comment dpkg: error: dpkg status database is locked by another process
As it stands now, this is definitely the best answer. Yes, it is very important to make sure no running process owns the lock. I'd already checked that, nothing was running, and I needed to know how to delete the old lock. This answer covers all the bases.

5 workspaces, wow! You must be a master multitasker. :)

comment How to easily resize images?
I think you need to log out or reboot after installing it--or just do what I did; run pkill nautilus and then click the Home folder icon to reload nautilus with the new plug-in.

comment How can I tell what workspace I am in with Unity?
Why is this even needed? Because of Unity2D? I am using Ubuntu 14.04 with regular Unity and the workspace indicator shows on my launcher bar with no further action required, once I've enabled workspaces (Settings->Appearance->Behavior).

revised How to exclude a folder from rsync
Removed confusing addendum by salspaugh. I'm surprised that made it by the reviewers. I replaced it with a paragraph explaining the trailing slash, which seems to have been a source of confusion for salspaugh.

dconf didn't help, but pkill did the trick for me.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 Calculator does not get focus when opened from keyboard shortcut
I don't have a "calc" button on my keyboard, but I always map Super-C to the calculator (via System-Settings->Keyboard->Shortcuts->Launchers), and this problem has been driving me batty. I disabled the built-in shortcut, added a Custom Shortcut, and now it works great, thanks (no log-out required; hopefully it still works when I do log out!).

comment How do I install Guest Additions in a VirtualBox VM?
I think all you need to install on newer Ubuntus is the package virtualbox-guest-x11, which will draw in any other required dependencies.

comment My-Weather-Indicator Inaccurate, Not Able To Select Wunder Ground In Options
Thank you! For those wondering, I requested a free "developer" license (I am a paying wunderground subscriber), and encountered no problem saying that I "my" app was called "My Weather Indictator", and used launchpad.net/my-weather-indicator as the app's website address. They gave me a key immediately and it worked. Thanks!

comment Software Updater window not displaying, though open in 13.04
I think having dual monitors is the issue. Not sure about 13.04 but in 14.04 dual-monitor support is horrible.

You're welcome. I hope you have a great experience with Ubuntu. I left the Windows world 14 years ago and haven't missed it one bit!

Does the link I provided (summarized by MHK in the other answer) not help you to get Ubuntu back as a boot option?
