comment How to run Mac OS X virtually on Ubuntu 12.04
Thanks for the great tute, there was only one thing missing for me, which was provided by the link in @PhilippeGachoud's post: Most of the time you can’t see the disk to select. Go to Disk utilities as shown below. ... Create a new partition and press Apply.

comment Sandisk USB not detected by Ubuntu 14.04 but detected by Windows 7
Thanks for this, I'm having a problem with Huawei modem not being detected - in the sense that when you plug it in USB, there are no messages whatsoever in dmesg/syslog... Also here, its an older USB modem, and plugged into USB 3 port... and indeed, if I wait 5-10 minutes, then eventually there are messages in syslog, and the device gets recognized... Wish there was something that could force probing on usb buses...

comment Installing xsane without gimp?
@muru - that's what I thought, that is why this behavior surprised me. I don't recally manually enabling it, but maybe something I've installed did. Anyways, good to have it confirmed how it should go, probably some setting changed somewhere - and by the way, your duplicate helped - --no-install-recommends did install without gimp - many thanks! Feel free to close...

comment Installing xsane without gimp?
Thanks @muru - why does it then automatically want to install itself, if it's only suggested? Or is that how apt-get works?

Good point @dadexix86 - I guess now that I do this to avoid crashes, I'd like the extra logging to terminal this kind of a setup would provide...

comment How can i change the default name for the screenshots made by gnome-screenshot?
Whoever thought it a good idea to hardcode screenshot names in C, requiring a recompile of the entire desktop environment? Had no one ever thought that a user might want to change the default naming? Now that there is dconf-editor and such, and gnome-screenshot uses it, why not have a dconf entry stting for "screenshot naming policy" which you could set to say Screenshot-%02d.png, and if empty, then go along with the hardcoded naming policy? Eh....
