comment Why the difference between Samba sharing inside Home folder and outside (eg: mounted device)
This is 50% of the answer. If you can add the reason why the difference between HOME and anything outside of it then I will upvote and accept.

comment Why can an application installed using Wine not access NTFS partitions?
That is regedit, another wine command. For more wine commands see chapter 10 in askubuntu.com/questions/316025/installing-and-configuring-wine

comment Problem installing Ubuntu with Windows 8.1 through Wubi
Hola, primero que nada NO uses Wubi para instalar Ubuntu, eso se dejo de recomendar y usar hace 4 versiones atras. Segundo Wubi no detecta Windows 8 correctamente. Para ser sincero tampoco los otros Windows. Lo recomendable es instalar la imagen ISO a un Pen Drive y por alli instalar Ubuntu usando el Live USB. Si deseas ayuda tecnica con respecto a este problema, por favor envia un email a luisalvarado@ubuntu.com usando tu gmail. Saludos.

Did you press the combination of keys I mentioned. You need to press them all together.

comment Misconfigured Compiz and lost desktop usage
Nota that most of the answers in the duplicate question are wrong. They simply do not work in 12.04+. The ones I would look apart from mine here is the one Mark Shuttleworth made and the one by user155373.

comment How to disable the popping sound when changing the volume?
Note to those that marked as close, this is not a bug, this is a sound feature that the user wants to remove. When you change the volume it makes a pop sound. It is actually annoying and that is what the OP wants to disable.

comment XBMC Gotham freezes the system on exit
If it helps, I removed the unstable PPA I had (forgot about it) and applied the official PPA which has the 13.0 version (Somehow I had the 14.x version O.o). After that I disabled the VDPAU option and now I can see the videos again. This is an issue that is already fixed in the upcoming 13.1 which basically fixes at least 4 bugs I was having with 13.0. So let's wait about a week or two for this huge fixed version.

+1 For the excellent script. Works perfectly.

comment Convert multiple document files inside their current folders
Both answers are excellent, my only doubt is why this script is about 5x slower than the bash script below. I was under the impression that python would be faster. Do you have any idea? Could it be the 2 for and an additional if?

@jplandrain Hope you don't have one of those Lenovo that simply will not work. I had one that at the end I had to format Windows 8 and install it again in order to get Ubuntu working. Please file a bug report as described in this answer just to make sure you don't have one of those rare cases.

@Diffy A couple of Q: Did you purge all ATI related packages. Cleaned the /var/cache/apt/archive folder of DEB packages, removed any custom conf file and rebooted to start from scratch?

comment Wireless is disabled by hardware switch. Wifi doesn't work! (hard blocked: yes,soft blocked :no, hp pavillion g6 2207tx, Ubuntu 12.04)
Please read here just in case: askubuntu.com/questions/211035/… but if it is disabled by hardware switch then simply turn it on again using either a switch around the border of the laptop or a function key combination.
