comment Install ie9 under wine?
Try setting Wine to run as Windows 7 (run winecfg and change the "windows version" to Windows 7 instead of Windows XP). it might work.

comment Cannot boot from Ubuntu USB
Did you burn through Windows or Linux (or OSX)? You could attempt to use UNetbootin, which is a free program that runs on Windows and Linux (don't know about osx), which will make your flash drive a live cd (it works for all of the main ubuntu derivatives and most other ditros).

comment How to tweak Ubuntu running on an old PC?
Can you be more specific on what hardware you're getting? Just saying "old" doesn't really mean anything...

I can't load into a portable operating system. It's a CR-48, I had to hack it just to install ubuntu.

comment Fan making noise while running ubuntu
When my CR48's fan goes into over drive and the thing is fine, I can just put it to sleep (close the lid) and wake it back up and the fan will no longer be going abnormally fast (though it doesn't go abnormally fast frequently)

comment Fan making noise while running ubuntu
@Chandru1, you could be using Windows, or another computer. I've seen only one other issue in my polling of the internet, and the suggestion received was either that the computer wasn't in the right power mode (but for the five laptops I've installed ubuntu on that seems unlikely because it does that automatically) or that the computer is broken and needs to go back to acer. That doesn't seem right because you said Windows worked fine. If it's a new computer it might just be that you need to run the battery down all the way and charge it back up to see if the fan stops.

@Chandru1, is it connected to the internet, I've found lots of issues about the wifi not working with Linux, if it's not connected, it might not be getting to the restricted drivers list.

@Chandru1, check what? I don't know what computer you have, so I can't check it for you. I would be able to give a clearer answer with that information. To check for restricted drivers go to administration -> restricted drivers.

comment How do I restore Grub after Windows has deleted it
Technically windows didn't write over grub, it's still there, you just have to tell bios to use the linux partition instead of the windows partition. Also, while not technically an answer you're looking for, there's a tool you can use to specify different operating systems to be in the windows boot menu called EasyBCD - neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1

This isn't really an Ubuntu question, but a video/audio question.

comment Default mount options on auto-mounted NTFS partitions (how to add `noexec` and `fmask=0111`?)
But by default files on fat32 drives are set to not executable. Hence kind of a solution.

comment Missing Sound After Cleanup and Moving of Home Directory
It's Pulse Audio (.pulse), and I found the exact problem wasn't permissions (everything was set to 0777), but ownership, so the root was still owner, not me.

comment Default mount options on auto-mounted NTFS partitions (how to add `noexec` and `fmask=0111`?)
you can't, read the second paragraph. You would have to switch all of those drives to fat32 to keep them compatible and non-executable by default.

comment Edubuntu Deployment and Active Directory Authentication
-1 because deployment isn't cloning. Deployment is more along the lines of setting up a server and telling all the clients using the server to do exactly as you say.
