comment How to share my WiFi Internet via WiFi?
I have successfully used Hostapd to share my 3G USB connection via wifi with Android on Ubuntu 15.04. This tutorial was exactly what I needed: seravo.fi/2014/create-wireless-access-point-hostapd

comment 'zeitgeist-fts' always using a lot of memory!
I had a huge memory leak (700+ MB of memory after one use of Unity Dash) because of Zeitgeist and I fixed it by disabling recording activity & restart and activating it again. Without this service, working on the computer is nastier (tried it, also), I use "Recent files" very often, so I do not wish to navigate to some folder each time I open a frequently used file. In the last 2-3 days, zeitgeist-fts uses less than 5 MB of memory. I guess there was some error in the index file and disabling&reenabling the service fixed it. PS: I use Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

comment How to transfer files between Android and Ubuntu?
gMTP also works in Ubuntu 14.04 with Lenovo s650 phone with a small action: I had to upgrade some libraries from ppa:langdalepl/gvfs-mtp and now I can access and download phone content in gMTP.

comment How do I enable hardware accelerated video in VLC with Intel HD 4000 GPU?
I have installed the 3 packages and activated GPU decoding. On Intel HD 3000, for a 720hd movie my processor usage was 12-13% before activating this and 6% after. Great job!

comment How can I restart compiz from tty? (& Related, how can I set up a fallback WM?)
I have killed compiz and I had to run DISPLAY=:0 unity --replace to start unity. Just running compiz did not show full screen window decoration and did not automatically start unity.

comment How can I view a Microsoft Publisher .pub file?
As it is an old question, maybe an update is good: I was able to open .pub in Libre Office Draw (version 4.0) and seems to import it quite nice.

comment How to rip DVD's in high quality
Just to make sure everyone knows, the old ppa has only old versions of Handbrake. Use the repository @DoDoGo published. Just installed Handbrake on Ubuntu 13.04 and it works like a charm.
