comment Is Not Installed (Residual config) safe to remove all?
Awesome answer. This will surely help a lot. Loved the grep/awk/xarg combination.

comment How to drag a folder to the launcher from Nautilus
Works. Thanks Marawan. I would remove the sudo from the first line since that folder is owned by the actual user.

comment How to find and change the screen DPI?
@FuzzyToothpaste that is why I said "helps a bit". That bit is that, when you lower the scale, apart from changing the menu, title bar and launcher icons, the actuall size of the windows, because of the change, will be smaller. So it helps a bit if you have for example a 1280x720 resolution (like a laptop) and you want to fit the windows inside that 720. Lowering the scale to 0.8 or less will "feel" like you are using 1080 instead of 720. This of course is with Non Hi-DPI like the apple products. I guess the effect would be bigger on those type of hardware.

comment ASUS Z87 Pro Bluetooth not finding other devices with 13.10
@PJSingh I personally tested 3.14, 3.15, 3.16 and 3.17. It works starting with 3.14 and even though it does not appear in kernelnewbies.org/Linux_3.14-DriversArch it works correctly. Tested with the Samsung HD1200, Samsung S4 and Samsung S4 Mini. Also just noticed right now I tested everything with Samsung.

comment ASUS Z87 Pro Bluetooth not finding other devices with 13.10
@PJSingh Using a newer kernel or waiting for 14.10 will solve it. Right Now I am using 14.04 with kernel 3.17 and 14.10. give me a moment to paste an image for the BT working.

comment Diagnosing Samba
Can you add to the global section the force option for testing. eg: force = joshua. And then restart the smbd service to test. Also, if you want them to "see" the networkshare resource, remove the ; in front of the browseable option. Let me know if it goes well.

comment Diagnosing Samba
Thanks Fox, what about the smb.conf, for the look of smbtree, there are only 2 computers on the workgroup "workgroup" and one of them is sharing 5 things (well 3 things actually) and the other is not. What version of ubuntu are you using (I am guessing Xubuntu because of Thunar), what else have you tried. The more information you provide the easier is to answer.

comment Diagnosing Samba
There is more information needed before providing a correct answer. Like how the samba was configured in general, what's the output of smbtree, permissions and more.

comment How do I install and configure Wine?
@FuzzyToothpaste true that. Forgot about that and the part that the libraries are only for that specific app.

comment Unable to upgrade to 14.04
Pretty sure this is a stuck key because of old keyboard (Either laptop, desktop or a cat is sitting on the keyboard right now). Apart from that, what do you mean with "unable to execute the file". Did you download the ISO and burn it on a DVD or USB? or are you trying to execute an ISO like an EXE?

comment How do I install and configure Wine?
@FuzzyToothpaste There are many apps that still do not work 100% on PoL. Actually there are more apps that work on Wine than PoL. Always remember that PoL just makes the installation and configuration process for specific apps easier. I have it install and when Wine can't do it, I go with PoL if it has the app on the list. But it is always recommended to use Wine first, then any other like PoL, CodeWeavers or any other alternative (Like VirtualBox for example). PoL still is an excellent alternative for users that can't do with stuff like winetricks and packages.

You can't get it to run how? What have you tried already? What errors are you getting. There is not enough information in your question to give a helpful answer so please add more info about the issue.

comment Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 fullscreen with system bar ( ubuntu 14.04 )
In my case I have a normal 440 (Not a monster like yours), but I recommend updating Wine with the wine ppa. You should have 1.7.26, then proceed to test and let us know. More info in: askubuntu.com/questions/316025/how-to-install-wine

comment Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 fullscreen with system bar ( ubuntu 14.04 )
Weird because with Wine 1.7.26 I am getting right now fullscreen (No Unity Launcher Icons or System Bar showing). Testing Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 from a friend. What video card are you using, video drivers and anything else that can help.

comment How to connect and disconnect to a network manually in terminal?
I could think of a script that can only be executed by a specific user and that it grabs the password from an encrypted location that only the specific user could read, then stores the password on a temp environment variable which is then send as input to the wireless command, after connection is successful, the temp environment variable is removed. Am just thinking out loud about other methods.
