comment How do I hide other users folder?
Maybe you misunderstood: They have the permissions to at least read and execute on /home -- so they can see everything in there. So even if /home/developerdoc is not read/executable for them, it cannot be hidden but will always be executed. Think of it like /home being a street, and /home/* are the houses there: If one is permitted to enter the street, but does not have the key to any of the houses, he will still be able to see the houses (you cannot hide them), though he may be unable to enter any of them.

comment Ubuntu 12.04 not resuming from suspend Zenbook UX32VD
Ah, well -- that's also a possibility. Maybe you post that as answer to your own question, then accept it -- so people with the same problem can easily see it? Though not all of them probably want to go for some "early bird", or even a non-LTS, for some it may be acceptable.

that would be via the grub configuration. Check How do I add a boot parameter? to find out :)

comment My update manager always stuck while applying changes
@maythux understood -- but IMHO it is a one-time thing (if that specific package was updated, it should be over). Did you try it? You didn't say you're always pressing "q" here and no longer can stand it :)

comment problem while removing Kubuntu-desktop
Well, that's really strange. The error message would indicate that you tried to install default-jre (and the dependency on openjdk-6-jre could not be resolved) -- but you did an uninstall. So I can only guess your uninstall triggered a switch of dependencies (hard to explain in short, but something like a dependency is resolved by either one or another package, and by removing one it would plug-in the other). You could try to sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre before running your above sudo apt-get remove ..., so this dependency is met.

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.
