comment What's the difference between the various printer connections?
The point is that they noted the model number as an aside, but were asking about the choice of protocol option. So in addition to waspinator's input, it seems to me that they might be simply adding a new printer to their laptop config, which has already been made into a network printer by being connected via USB to some other system and shared by that system over the intranet. And it certainly is possible to connect to a USB printer that way, over the network.

comment how to disable apache2 server from auto starting upon boot up
@jutky can someone explain why this is better than tomodachi's answer, given the comment there that says the -f option is necessary if you want to keep apache2 around?

comment webex is not working in Ubuntu 14.04 Please Help
Thanks! But you need to indent the lines of output so they aren't wrapped together in the output. And see Yuv's first answer for a few helpful additional tips.

comment webex is not working in Ubuntu 14.04 Please Help
Thank you! The first method worked for me, though you need to feed each result from the "not found" search onto the end of an apt-file search command as eldho's answer shows. And I had similar results as what you got - no audio.

comment How do you globally set the default browser using KDE4?
Very handy! default browser worked like a charm. But that email line didn't work from gwenvew for sharing an image - the image itself wasn't loaded as an attachment. Can that be made to work as well?

comment How can I install Typing Break?
Ahh - so it isn't in Ubuntu, but is in the Mate Desktop PPA. That implies various potential complications from packaging, and a rather different level of support than an LTA release, and a different approach to security patching etc. But good to know!
