comment upgrade from 14.10 to 15.04 stuck
JdeBP- yes, it's similar. I saw that one before I posted mine. There are no details in the other post about where the installation is stalled, nor any of the console output. Also, mine doesn't have anything to do with ctrl-shift. The problem in Question 600421 was caused by a mis-use of sudo. That person did a sudo to execute the command, but the output redirection happened outside of sudo, so it failed to write the cache file. I executed the entire command as root, including the redirection. That still didn't cause the installation process to get un-stuck.

comment Desktop shows a white or black background instead of wallpapers
Couldn't find ubuntu-tweak-tool. I found unity-tweak-tool. Is that what you meant? It has the System/Desktop Icons tab, but switching it on (and off) didn't bring the wallpaper back.-(

revised Where can I find a Subversion 1.7 binary?
Fixed [y/n] prompts to show default response in upper case. Fixed [y/N] prompts so the cursor stays on the same line.
