comment Problem when installing 14.04 in Toshiba Satellite L845
It sounds like Ubuntu installation cannot correctly determine the partitions in the hard drive. Can you boot Ubuntu from USB (use the Try without install option) and open gparted? Take a screenshot of the Gparted showing the HDD partitions. Upload the screenshot in imgur.com and add that link to the question above using the edit feature.

comment How to prevent the catastrophic loss of ubuntu lvm drive encryption key?
I suggest you create backups of unencrypted files and folders in an external media and encrypt the backups using a different key/password for security. Keep the backups in a different location to avoid fire, flood, and other disasters that make your Mac inoperable.

Create a separate user for your colleagues. Create soft links of the files your colleagues need to change to the new user's home folder or desktop. Give them the password of the new user.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 Returns to Login Screen After Login
It is a hidden file in /home/username folder also known as your (username's) home folder. The rm command deletes the file. It will be recreated the next time you login using the GUI.

comment I need help resurrecting an old Asus Eee PC that already has Ubuntu
Since your sister does not remember her username, you will need to add yourself as a new administrative user. Drop to root shell as described above, and use the command adduser username admin where username is your userID. See askubuntu.com/questions/80083/… Then change the password for your username.

comment I need help resurrecting an old Asus Eee PC that already has Ubuntu
@ThomasW. That's why I didn't write it as an answer. It is a comment. OP didn't say anything about recovering the data. IMHO it is easier to do a fresh install than start with a 4 year old (possibly older) system and go through unsupported updates and bring it up to date. Anyway, assuming that the data is not encrypted, it can be easily copied to another external media using Live USB, before the fresh install.

It may be simpler to start fresh and install a recent version of Ubuntu/Lubuntu/Xubuntu and format over whatever was there before.

comment Windows7 machine cannot access Linux share folders via Samba, help please
Have you checked that anyone has the read and write permission for the folder you are trying to share in Ubuntu? Right click on the folder in Ubuntu and click on properties. Make sure everyone can read and write to the folder.
