comment How to run an executable bash script on Kubuntu?
Duh! Stupid me. The window decoration style I have opted for made the radio style button to toggle between executable/non-executable difficult to see what option is selected. Problem now solved.

A left mouse click opens the file, a right click gives a dialogue box with options to cut, copy, rename, move to waste, open with, actions, compress and properties. Open with gives the options of Kate or Open Office, actions leads to preview or create project with K3b, compress gives options for zip, rar etc. Nowhere is there an option to run.

This problem has now been solved. Uninstalled lots of software using Synaptic, purged PPAs using Ubuntu Tweak and then used the commands sudo apt-get clean, sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get upgrade. After doing this, upgrade worked with no problems.

comment Cannot connect to Internet after using Windows XP on dual booted machine
I have a solution to my immediate problem. I have installed Oracle VM Virtualbox on Ubuntu, installed XP as a guest operating system and installed those programs I need to run on Windows on this guest system. I can now connect using this guest Windows system and there is no problem with connecting on Ubuntu afterwards.
