comment How do I get a list of installed files from a package?
First, it is sources.list, not source.list. 2nd, it contains a potentially partial list of repositories, not what packages are installed, let alone the files that belong to installed packages.

comment Not able to get the reverse DNS working
@gertvdijk: Our home private networks are getting filled with a myriad of anonymous devices getting and losing dynamic IPs all the time. It is getting really hard to distinguish between legit hosts and potentially others. There seems to be a great need for a comprehensive quide to having reverse DNS work everywhere on the typical phone/tablet/desktop/game-console/... home network. It would be great if you could add this Q&A on the site. Highly appreciated!

comment asynchronous logging via rsyslogd(8) and write buffer increase
@djeikyb: sorry no. I see interest (votes on the question) but no one has answered it yet. Looks like this requires a source-code dive.

comment Battery Indicator Missing, Cannot Install Because No JDK 7
Hard to answer without knowing what's exactly messed-up. Once you run 3rd party, non-free (as in freedom), non-standard stuff like 'oracle-java7-installer' which don't play well with conventions and may modify system defaults and files, it is hard to know what effect is. On the good side, most of the above added "errors" are only warnings you shouldn't worry about: files under /etc/apt/sources.list.d that end with '.disabled' are simply getting ignored, so that's ok. You should decide if you want 'raring' or 'quantal', and clean that up 1st. You can't have them both, like Braiam said. HTH.

comment Battery Indicator Missing, Cannot Install Because No JDK 7
Part of the problem is that you seem to have non Ubuntu (or pure debian) packages installs. In particular, for java you should really be using openjdk-7-jre, and not Oracle java. The direction suggested by Briam (clean up the mess first) sounds like the right one, but the details may be incomplete to fully untangle the mess because there's not enough data on everything you have installed that is not from official repos.
