comment Unity missing? Can't see top or side panels
From all these suggestions only this one helped me to recover from reinstalling the system after the power loss (power loss is deadly for btrfs partitions with ecryptfs)

comment How to make sure, that grub always starts the default entry after a timeout?
@muru Yes, it is a duplicate. Should I delete the question, or leave it so the others can reach the answer under different search phrase?

comment How to monitor network speed of remote system on unity panel?
For me it is more like a comment. There is still >5h work in research and coding to make an answer, and I am still not sure whether it will really be a feasible solution. And I'll need to properly address some difficult corner cases to make it reliable; like handling the network timeouts.

Oh, that is a good idea. I'll try that and when I'm ready I'll post the script.

comment How to use a computer as a bluetooth headset?
Well, I can connect to the bluetooth headset. @hal7df, I have two more Ubuntu computers with bluetooth. I will try to make a connection between them with bluetooth and see what happens.

@hal7df They connect for about 1 sec, and then disconnect.

@hal7df Thank you for answer. I've updated the question with extra info that I think might be relevant.

comment How to use a computer as a bluetooth headset?
Maybe, for start, I should ask how to setup any bluetooth client-server connection that works between 2 Ubuntu notebooks. That may give me at least some baseline, from where I can expand my knowledge.

comment How to use a computer as a bluetooth headset?
@hal7df I tried one, and it just didn't work. I assumed that these 2 years is just too much for the tutorial to work. As I said, I have very limited knowledge of bluetooth technology and it is very hard for me to tell what to expect and how to debug. In ideal world I'd assume that there is an application like blueman-services that can run an audio bluetooth server, like it is supposed to do. But that doesn't and I really don't know if that is a feasible way. There are at least 3 competing programs for bluetooth: bluez, blueman and built-in network manager, that may conflict with each other.

comment Installing 14.04 Server to exisiting btrfs subvolume
@philcolbourn I know it. But empirical evidence tells, that the part of grub.cfg that invokes the kernel and instructs it about the name of the root btrfs subvolume magically survives update-initramfs.

comment btrfs for deduplication and compression at the same time?
After kernel 3.9 defregmentation no longer re-duplicate files. Or so it is says - I never tested this aspect myself. The particular kernel patch (git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/…) says only about subvolumes. It seems that defragmentation inside a subvolume never resulted in reduplication of deduplicated contents.

comment How to add element to the gsettings array at the specific location (given by index)?
@SylvainPineau I know it. But I wouldn't accept it before I know it works. And some other things forced me to divide me spare time even thinner. And, dear Sylvian, I am very grateful for your work: your answer actually exceeded my expectations; it is rare on Stack Exchange to get a custom-made scripts for an answer. And you did them in good style, too! In my opinion +1 is way to little to fully express the amount of help you've given me.

comment How to remove element from gsettings array in script?
Another problem, this one I cannot fix: ./remove.py org.gnome.desktop.input-sources sources "('xkb', 'us')" doesn't finds the entry. I guess it has something to do with ' quotes or spaces in the argument.

comment How to remove element from gsettings array in script?
Works flawlessly if the element is actually present in the list (easy to check with gsettings get ${schema} ${key} | grep -q "${value}" )
