comment problem while removing Kubuntu-desktop
Sorry, but you should provide better details -- not just "see link" in this case. What exactly did you execute? Your output misses the command. The error message points to an unresolved dependency problem (you try to remove a package still required by another -- or to install one whichs dependencies could not be fulfilled).

comment My update manager always stuck while applying changes
to me that looks like some changelog/text file displayed using less (why should a package do that?). If that's the case, try clicking into the "black area" and hit the q key (to leave the "less" program). Update should then continue.

comment How can I run an application with a GUI as admin from a non-admin user session?
i used gksudo from a normal terminal window with a non-admin user (my own user). You are correct however for the second try, as I still had sudo perms then. But the problem of Boris is a different one: his app cannot connect to X, which in my case worked both times. As you can see from the original question, sudo in text mode is working for him.

comment Can Kwin be used in Unity?
one possible alternative would be using KDE4 and making it look like Unity, as described in this German blog (if you don't speak/read German, just take a look at the screenshots there and try to translate the page using e.g. Google translate -- this should at least give you the basic info).

comment /media folder nearly full - /media/vids folder has 500gb free
PS: "Nothing weird" referred to the reporting of free space by your "check". Please check what you configured as download folder in Torrent Downloader, and make sure that starts at least with /media/Vids (and does not simply point to /media or even starts completely different).

comment Cron job not executing
@user77242 Glad to read it worked out! So now you can remove the debug code, and replace the redirect in your cron job by a simple >/dev/null. This way "normal output" (e.g. progress) is sent to the "black hole", but you get a note when errors occur. And as this answer solved your problem, you may "accept" it as described above -- so other users can see immediately this problem found a solution.

comment Cron job not executing
The testlog cannot give you anything this way, as everything is already been eaten up by /dev/null. Change the line in your crontab to bash /home/jonathan/Games/Minecraft/Server/Backup.sh >>/tmp/testlog.log (i.e. kick off the &>/dev/null part) and try again. -- But what that log entry clearly states is that your job is executed. Which already answers your question ;) Now we just need to figure out why it is not doing what you expect -- and this I hope to see in the testlog.

You're welcome. If this solved your problem, you may "accept" it (by clicking once on the checkmark on the left to it). This is a good custom on all StackExchange sites -- and helps others to go straight to the most helpful answer (well, in this case it's only one, I know). Otherwise, if you have further questions, feel free to ask them.

comment Quickly: share, release and submitubuntu not working anymore
Looks like a direct duplicate to me: See I cant push my app to ppa with quickly submitubuntu command. But you've already solved it ;)

comment Evolution: Broken Outbox / Sending mail takes several minutes
I see. So I take it the long delay was due to the broken mbox files, and then it fits ;)
