In the point 2 you do not set an alias but a variable.

comment “Could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/3.XX-generic/modules.dep.bin'” when mounting using a loop
I had the same problem after the battery in my notebook failed during boot. mo‌​dules.dep.bin was empty. (computer shut off probably right during rebuild or something?) The mentioned reinstall solved the problem. Thanks! After further study I think it would probably suffice to run depmod to regenerate the file.

comment Why wouldn't `which` command work for `cd`? Can't find the executable `cd` too!
Ok, you are right. Sorry, I did not follow the link to the cd documentation‌​.

The linked description from the POSIX specification does not explicitly say that cd must be as shell built-in ... but based on how process properties and their transfer work in UNIX cd as a shell built-in is the only straightforward implementation. See the reply of Volker Siegel.

comment cannot start graphical programs with sudo
This problem appeared when I partially renamed an Ubuntu 14.04 machine: I only edited /etc/hosts and run hostname thenewname. After editing /etc/hostname and rebooting everything started to work correctly again.

comment Is it possible to make writing to .bash_history immediate?
@artfulrobot: This command is a bash built-in so it is described in man bash. You can also use help history.

comment apt-get: No space left on device (12.04)
I had the same problem caused by kernel updates which do not remove old kernels automatically. Linux headers of every kernel update occupy a considerable number of inodes! --- My "safe" solution was to move two kernel headers directories to a different filesystem: cd /usr/src ; cp -a linux-headers-3.2.0-3{2,3}* /home/tmp-hdr ; rm -r linux-headers-3.2.0-3{2,3}*, apt-get-install -f, remove some other headers the right way: apt-get purge linux-headers-..., move the headers from the tmp back: cd /usr/src ; cp -a /home/tmp-hdr/* .. Remove more of the old kernels using apt-get purge.

comment “No space left on device” while installing packages
Check also free inodes: df -i. The same message No space left on device is written when the system is out of inodes. Which is a common problem on Ubuntu running for a long time because every kernel update consumes a considerable number of inodes.

It is rather a duplicate of this one: apt-get: No space left on device (12.04)

Thank you rimez. I have noticed that there is an earlier report of this bug: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/1310316 I have marked the newer one (linked above) as a duplicate.

comment How to prevent fonts from rescaling
I have encountered this problem too. After lowering "scale for menu and title bars" after some time the font scaling (accessible in Unity Tweak) became very low and the fonts were almost unreadable. Do you know if there is bug ticket open for this problem?
