comment OpenCV installation
Please avoid apt-get -y when proposing package installation, so that people can evaluate what is being installed.

comment Apache doesn't execute PHP files, but makes me download them
When you have a reasonable number of machines and it's reasonably late in the evening, this is definitely a valid answer.

comment How to make nautilus forget SMB session passwords without logging out
Because I was working on many different things and logging out/in is a plain waste of time if you know there is a faster way for making things happen. Obviously, if there is no such way, one is forced to log out/in. It's the same reason why you don't reboot to restart samba or nfs. There is a faster way of doing it and in this way you can test things faster.

comment connect-debounce spam on TTY and system suspend
I agree, I have this problem on a 7-years+ old pc, often when I plug in a powered USB hub. I've found that this answer sometimes solves the issue. Anyway, I'm still trying to find a realiable software-only solution :)

comment Is it possible to install Ubuntu without formatting any partitions?
Yes, it should work because packages overwrite the previous configuration, but you cannot be sure that every package will work as expected. For example, if you (or someone else) added broken (or malicious) files/scripts inside something.d directories (e.g. /etc/apt/sources.list.d) the system won't be clean as with a new installation. So, if you are quite sure that your system is just broken and not compromised, you can quite safely overwrite (even if it's almost pointless IMHO), otherwise just do a clean install on an empty partition.
