comment Ubuntu 12.04: mouse and wireless not working on startup
Hmm. I just discovered my sound isn't working either. I ran sudo lshw | grep UNCLAIMED and it looks like I'm missing a lot of drivers. There's got to be a solution to properly rebuild the modules file.

comment Blank desktop after upgrade to 14.04
You can actually edit your posts to correct errors. I made the edits for you, changing the shortcut sections to code blocks.

comment Ubuntu 12.04: mouse and wireless not working on startup
I'm having the same problem. And sudo modprobe psmouse also works for the mouse. So it appears not to be isolated. I just recently ran update manager, so I'm guessing some update broke them.

comment /etc/hosts keeps getting reset. How am I supposed to edit it?
No vpn, but it looks like dnsmasq-base is installed. I'll look into that and update on results.

comment How to resolve ambiguous key sequence?
Sadly the above appears not to have solved it. Just started basket and all shortcuts but one were working. I tried to fix it as with Ctrl+1 and now they're all broken again.

comment How to resolve ambiguous key sequence?
Interesting. I unset it through Tags > Customize > Shortcut, and Ctrl+1 did nothing. I set it back to Ctrl+1 and now it works! Ctrl+1 triggers both toggling the checkbox on, and checking it. So maybe there is a bug with resolving a shortcut with multiple actions. Ctrl+2 has the same problem.

comment How can I search the ubuntu source code?
@warl0ck how would I use notify-send in this case? It seems it creates a notification message, rather than tracking down the source of a message.

comment How can I search the ubuntu source code?
The notification message is irrelevant. I'm not looking for this particular piece of source code. I'm looking for a general solution this problem in any case. The details are there just to make clear what type of situations I would want to do this in.

comment How can I convert mp3 to speex?
I also needed to install sox (obvious) and also libsox-fmt-all (not so obvious). Though libsox-fmt-mp3 would probably have covered it in this case.
