@VRR, Here's my /var/log/pm-suspend.log: paste.ubuntu.com/10833527. I don't use pidgin.

@j0h, I edited my question to indicate what kind of computer it is.

Since my computer is an iMac, I don't have BIOS, I don't think.

This was a little difficult to test, since I only experience the non-wakeup issue sometimes, like every day or two. I tried adding this line, though, and it didn't seem to change anything.

I don't want to disable suspension--that's just ignoring the problem. I want suspension to work as expected, so that I can wake up my computer from suspend.

comment Does Ubuntu have an equivalent to the AUR (Arch User Repository)?
I don't think Launchpad PPAs are even remotely equivalent to the AUR. I've just edited my question with more about that distinction.

I edited the question to explain more about why PPAs aren't the same as the AUR.

comment Where can I find zsh man pages?
Great, running wget -qO- "http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/zsh/zsh/5.0.2/zsh-5.0.2.tar.gz?r=http%‌​3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fzsh%2Ffiles%2Fzsh%2F5.0.2%2F&ts=1407408881&u‌​se_mirror=superb-dca3" | sudo tar xvz -C /usr/share/man/man1/ --wildcards "zsh-5.0.2/Doc/*.1" --strip-components=2 && sudo chown root:root /usr/share/man/man1/zsh*.1 from the comment in that bug report fixed it.

comment Where can I find zsh man pages?
There's no such thing as sudo apt-get reinstall, apparently. Running sudo apt-get remove zsh zsh-common zsh-doc && sudo apt-get install zsh zsh-common zsh-doc doesn't give me man pages, but it does give a warning: update-alternatives: warning: skip creation of /usr/share/man/man1/rzsh.1.gz because associated file /usr/share/man/man1/zsh.1.gz (of link group rzsh) doesn't exist. Could that have something to do with it?

I apparently already have zsh-common installed, but it still says No manual entry. Is there another package I should install?

comment How can I get two-finger scrolling working on my trackpad?
I tried running the revised commands above, but on the second command, I got Error! DKMS tree already contains: psmouse-elantech-x551c. You cannot add the same module/version combo more than once.

Running synclient returns Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?. This is probably because I don't have a synaptics trackpad. The instructions in that link don't apply to me, since I already have the 3.16 kernel, and it already has the appropriate patch (see my comments to the answer here that suggests patching the psmouse module).

This made it so that X wouldn't start at all. I had to remove the file from a TTY in order to get my computer to boot properly.

For the second command, I'm getting: Error! psmouse-elantech-x551c is already added! Aborting. and Module psmouse/elantech-x551c already installed on kernel 3.16.0-28-generic/x86_64 for the third command. I added the output of that command to the question.

@Fabby, just the standard kernel for Ubuntu 14.10. I also tried running other kernels, but they didn't fix this issue.

comment How can I get my broadcom wifi card to work?
The lspci output in my question showed bcma-pci-bridge instead of wl, since I was trying that driver at the time. But my main problem is that when I'm using wl, and only wl, then my wifi cuts out every minute or so. I blacklisted all the other drivers like you suggest, but the problem is not loading the driver, the problem is that the driver, when properly loaded, isn't working well--my wifi keeps cutting out every minute, and is excruciatingly slow. I'll edit my question to reflect my current lscpi output.

@rubo77, Have you been able to get two-finger scrolling working on the trackpad? Mine works in Fedora, but not in Ubuntu (question here).

If you read my question you'll see that my xinput output isn't Elantech (like it should be), it's PS/2 Mouse. Also if you see the comments on the question, installing the 3.18 kernel doesn't help--the trackpad still gets recognized as PS/2 Mouse. Since my trackpad is getting recognized as a mouse (and a very old one at that), my System Settings doesn't have options that relate to touchpads, since it thinks I have a PS/2 Mouse.

That question doesn't really help. It suggests installing the 3.18 kernel, which isn't an easy task. I installed that kernel, and nothing has changed--it's still getting recognized by Ubuntu as a PS/2 Mouse.
