Odd. The /etc/default/keyboard approach works fine for me on Ubuntu trusty.

comment Are there any fax sending applications?
Do you have a fax modem and a phone line? E.g. a Class 1, Class 2, or class 2.0 fax modem? Or are you looking for something that would use VOIP (FOIP)? Or perhaps a web service like metrofax?

comment How to install Django 1.6?
sudo pip install is a bad practice, which may work for django but can really screw up someone's system in other situations. Don't undermine the advantages of having Ubuntu manage your packages. The clean way to do it is with virtualenvwrapper.

comment Find duplicate files and folders and move these to a different folder

comment How to use Rhythmbox python console
Note that at least as of Ubuntu Trusty tahr 14.04, rhythmbox embeds python 3.4.0. So the command 'print "hello world"' is a syntax error ;) Instead, use the new Python 3 print function: 'print("hello world")'

comment Installing Java 7 Update 25 on 12.04 LTS?
PPAs can indeed be dangerous. But they can also be smart and more secure than a direct download, in the sense that they automate the process of upgrading. If the people running the ppa are trustworthy, and they sign their packages etc, then they are a good alternative to having people check the checksums of the tar.gz themselves, do the intstalls, and then constantly watch for notice of the need for a security update, and do it all over again. Note also that the ppa package does a number of other "update-alternatives" calls, for various installed programs that use java.
