I prefer usually challenging questions, while I may spend some time on easier ones trying to explain something that used to be difficult for me.

My preference goes to algorithms, and C, a language that I've liked and known for a long time, while I like also to visit server fault and its many interesting and challenging system, DB, nginx, ... questions and answers.

Linux has been my working environment for almost 10 years. And a (few) Mac for leisure.

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!

comment After installing ubuntu 14.04 my windows 8.1 seems to be missing?
There is some kind of fairness here: when upgrading from 8 to 8.1, Windows removes the grub bootloader...

Thanks a lot. ( @Hjke123 this should be the accepted answer ! While the first post gives hints on how to get the Ubuntu disk/partition IDs ...)

comment How do you repair an “input/output error” in an NTFS partition?
You could install VirtualBox and an XP on it. Prevent the drive mounting in fstab, (if USB mount: add the USB filter in VBox so that XP sees the "raw" USB drive), mount the drive on XP and run chkdsk on it.

Why the -1? DraftSight has a free version that allows conversions of that kind

comment Ubuntu Hangs Suddenly (Dell Latitude E5530)
You should try to install the latest 12.04.2 64 bits (LTS) (note the .2) which seems to be fine on my E5530.

comment Alt-Tab does not switch
Better yet for gnome classic users: when log in, just ensure (click the foot icon) to start Gnome classic No effects. The no-effect version seems to have Alt-tab working.

comment Alt-Tab does not switch
@Matthew Finally got it to work: in ccsm > Ubuntu Unity Plugin > Switcher, ensure <Alt>Tab is set for "Key to start the switcher", then "Back", then click the checkbox (to get it checked) near Ubuntu Unity Plugin - after a few warnings and key conflicts resolution, that should work!

comment How to Boot with no splash screen
The recovery options is not the solution, but it helps to see the messages, so +1. For info, I fixed the initial problem thanks to ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=11388915&postcount=18

comment How do I recover my applets / settings in the GNOME fallback session after a 11.10 upgrade?
Sorry but... move from where? Do you mean recreate one by one? This is what I want to avoid. Some applets may have been obsoleted - but I want to recover also all the icons / shortcuts which I created either manually or using the "Add to panel" option. Is there a tip like a cp .gnome?/something/files .newgnome?/somethingelse that would make these icons appear on the top panel, as it used to be the case in 10.04?

comment Ubuntu One sync seems frozen?
Never mind. Installed dropbox using the installer for Ubuntu. Install took 1 mn. Total sync took 20 mn.
