comment Thunderbird: enable drag and drop to move email into folder
@Mitch That's the opposite of what I want. That addon seems to be made to disable drag and drop. I want to enable it. BTW, I did double check and that add on is not currently installed

@Brian almost certainly. If not, this question covers how to fix grub so that you can dual-boot :)

comment How do I send Alt+Ctrl+F1 through Synergy?
Ah. This did switch terminals. HOWEVER, synergy stops working. With a little digging, this is because synergy requires X, so it can't work in a non-X environment, like one of the other virtual TTY's... Thanks for your answer!

comment Is it possible or a good idea to run a more or less secure minecraft server without having pre-experience in Ubuntu?
Welcome to AU! It is helpful to ask specific questions, focusing on one question per post. Reading your post, I'm not sure what is the main question you want us to help you answer. You do mention security, which this question covers. You also mention looking for a step-by-step guide - do you want a guide for setting up Ubuntu or for setting up Minecraft?

comment Computer started crashing during wine/gaming and videos - now crashes at any moment
This sounds like either an overheating problem, or a hardware failure problem. Cleaning out the dust, and making sure all your fans work could help with heat. I don't know enough about hardware to know if those temperatures are too high. If you've got a bunch of extra hardware around, you could just try swapping out piece by piece until it stops freezing. Otherwise, I'm not sure what the best way to proceed is. GL

comment Do themes slow down Ubuntu's performance?
This answer is technically correct. However, in most cases, the difference will not be meaningful compared to other things that effect performance (like running more programs at the same time, etc)

comment How to save after editting 'vi common.mak' (aircrack-ng) on Ubuntu 12.04
FYI vi is a program, that is editing the file common.mak. To use nano as the answer suggests, type nano common.mak. Or gedit common.mak, etc. FWIW, vi (and vim, which is an improved version) are not intuitive, but if you learn them, they are very powerful. I use vim all the time.
