comment Applications in Ubuntu take forever to resolve URL, webpages usually don't load completely. Internet on other OSs are fine. What's wrong? (14.04)
What do you have in /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base?

comment How to reinstall a single kernel module
This is not a duplicate of that question. The problem here is to reinstall an Ubuntu kernel module, available usually with apt-get. I would like to reinstall that module without reinstalling the whole kernel.

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!

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...

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.
