comment Have the BT mouse detected and started automatically
Well, I was expecting something from the settings. That's really basic stuff! And that solution requires also to have the mouse on during boot time... (I'm on a desktop using the BT mouse from time to time). Would this be fixed/better in earlier versions of Ubuntu?

comment what's the difference between base os ubuntu and image ubuntu?
Installation of Ubuntu in VirtualBox on a Mac is straightforward. Install VirtualBox. Add a new VM Linux / Ubuntu from the Machine / New menu. Download Ubuntu, put that ISO in the VB "drive" and boot the VM...

comment When run cat says: “Hello, nothing to see here! Move along!”
The cat binary command has clearly been replaced by a bash script (strings command)... so you probably have a "friend" who owns the root password?

comment Allow root access without passwd
Indeed it's in /etc/pam.d/common-auth, line with pam_unix.so, change nullok_secure to nullok (and in any other required auth files). Thanks for considering privileged users as adults, and providing a solution while warning the less experienced readers.

comment SANE Support for Canon LiDE 220?
Same problem here. Could not have it work with Ubuntu 14.04. Tried to play around with the source code to add the 220, but the 210 previous device seems to be too different.

comment Error “configure: error: GLib >= 2.28 is required” while configuring bluez stack
Installing libglib2.0-dev only would add much less packages ;-)

comment how can I change file association globally?
This is actually the more natural answer (from the GUI and without manually writing text files or installing 3rd party stuff). It requires a one type at a time setup, though, since Ubuntu does not offer a Open With in a multiple selection -> Properties.

comment Which PDF Viewer would you recommend?
That's right, but if you have or plan to have other KDE apps (and there are good ones) they will be needed anyway. And okular is so much better than evince (what cannot be?) that it's worth it!
