comment How to resize a window when the bottom right is not visible?
Sorry I omitted a fact. I don't think it should matter but I am including it in the original question. I am using Virtual Box.

Thanks! I tried it, but it doesn't help. I mean it works but I am still not able to get the window size small enough to see the OK and Cancel buttons. :(

comment How to turn the Red Light (infrared or optical sound output light) off?
If you can see the red light, I think it cannot be called as infrared. The TV remotes have infrared LEDs and you can't see the light when they are on (unless accompanied by other LEDs in the visible spectrum).

comment Is there a GUI to edit the PATH variable?
Yeah... mostly I am doing something wrong. But that is where my question lies: which is the surest way to set the PATH variable? My current method is to execute "PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/i386-linux:$PATH". But after I reboot, the systems forgets the above assignment.

comment How to open ~/.pam_environment?
I am having this problem too. Even for me the file .pam_environment doesn't exist. I too referred to the same link. One good point to note is that you can press Ctrl + H to show the hidden files. This is a general recommendation - it won't solve your current problem as the file is simply not there.

comment Is there a GUI to edit the PATH variable?
In windows there's one place you can go to and edit the path variable. That edit will always work (even after system reboot). But because of all the problems windows has, I hate it. I like Ubuntu but currently I am trying to learn how Ubuntu overcomes the problems in windows. PATH variable has been a thing which has confused me a lot (especially the un-Pythonic way in which it is handled - there's no one way of editing it, every blog recommends a new method).

comment Is there a GUI to edit the PATH variable?
My current objective is to set the PATH variable to: "/usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/i386-linux". But after I close the session, the system forgets the value of the PATH variable. So to initiate a simple task of running Latex on Ubuntu, I have to go to the folder, copy the path and set the variable each time I have to start using it. So I read different solutions to this problem. Some say edit bashrc, some say edit bash_profile, others say simply profile and some say edit bash_login. In all of this I am confused as to where PATH variable (which is guaranteed to load on login) located!
