My thoughts
Me on launchpad PPA
Evidently one of my mini-apps was useful enough to make it on to Webupd8
Do you use/like that app? Maybe you want to help fund a cryptogram game

comment Wireless not working on startup
So, a separate bug. Finally, editing the wireless config file would just make nm re-read it and try to grab the card again. So, actually properly fixing a couple of independent problems that are getting worked around instead of fixed, a bug, then a suspend/resume bug. That's just how I read it.

comment Wireless not working on startup
With the symptoms you cite, it sounds like modprobe gets loaded manually (why is there not a rule in modprobe.d? Is hotplugging the card not detecting it? That's a single issue to tackle separately). Restarting network-manager probably isn't so necessary. There's probably just a delay you might not be waiting for in order to get it to poll for newly available wireless devices (which would be magically fixed if 1 was fixed). Suspend and resume dis-associates the card, maybe clearing some saved state on the card?

This and this should probably be merged and made generic. The solution is probably the same.

comment Running Ubuntu 14.04 lts only folders I can access is in the home folder and all others I am denied access. how can I fix this?
gksudo has been removed from the default install and may be removed at some point altogether... so you shouldn't recommend something that is on the chopping block.

1) gksudo is no longer a default. 2) if you don't understand the ramifications of operating as root, you definitely shouldn't be doing it.

I like what you're trying to say, but you're just not warning people enough that what you're doing might be dangerous.

comment Encryption selected while installing Ubuntu but hard drive isn't encrypted
I'm not googling for you or searching the site for you. You made a nonsense edit. I'm inclined to close it as spam instead of rollback the edit, but I find helping users who aren't you more useful than just hammering a question in to non-existence. Search for meaningful output to add to your question.

Add diagnostic details to your question. It's all over the site how to tell people about you problem in a technical way.

revised Encryption selected while installing Ubuntu but hard drive isn't encrypted
the encrypted install options is luks, not ecryptfs, so either the OP doesn't understand what is going on, or there's a total logical fallacy. hence, retagging and the comment.

You obviously have two grub installations and the one that launches the "new install" isn't getting triggered.
