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.

comment I need help running simple-scan 3.14.0
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.

comment How to retrive root password, when someone has changed it?
@RAWbot What you are asking is not an Ubuntu problem, app or question regarding an ubuntu configuration but bypassing a security measure, you can see how I landed on that conclusion just by seeing the question as it currently shows. The information from your question points to the fact that you wish to reveal the current password for root, which is a subtle way of asking how to break into a system. I would recommend a more appropiate site like: security.stackexchange.com

comment How to give root access to a wine application
I would follow the recommendation of @Oxwivi because it helps you navigate better and it gives you better compatibility with Wine since when configured it takes the home folder as the "Document & Settings" as in Windows.

@Parto yes, if you can see it in the boot order that helps.

Can you test if you see the USB drive from the BIOS / UEFI setup? Just want to know something first.

comment How to copy windows files to ubuntu, from Ubuntu
That shows if it is actually mounted already or if the partition is detected in hibernation mode. If the latter applies, then doing the steps mentioned above will let you remove the hibernation phase and be able to mount and retrieve the files. Please let us know how it went. For the correct partition, I am giving an example, with the information provided I do not know which partition it is. I simply used sda1 as the example, but it could have been any before you found out which..

Hi friend, can you update your information with this "sudo lsblk -o NAME,FSTYPE,SIZE,MOUNTPOINT". That way we can know which partition is the one holding Windows by the TYPE column.

comment Upgrading to a no longer supported version
An idea would making a list of all installed packages with dpkg or synaptic and saving all conf files. That could save some time.

comment How to retrive root password, when someone has changed it?
There is no indication that this is about Ubuntu anywhere on the question. Furthermore this is more related to bypassing an actual security feature than solving an ubuntu problem.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about bypassing security. There is no actual ubuntu problem.
