comment How to set which output sound an application should use
@Takkat Many thanks, in my case, I happened to have a USB headphone (Basically not connected to the internal audio system). Will update the answer.

@Fabby Your comment has killed a cat... also that is why I added the Link there as a "Xorg title". But yes, I will follow your excellent advice and point to this. Thanks buddy.

How did you end up affecting sed in there?

comment How do I install Landscape for personal use?
Currently there is no "landscape-server-quickstart" in 14.10. What steps should I follow now in this particular case where I am testing everything in a LAN.

comment How to check Internet Speed via Terminal?
@EmilBorconi You are correct but in real life, we are not doing benchmarking Internet speeds here, this are just your average current speed tests of any home user without the need for sites like speedtest. A download speed (Which is enough for anyone trying to see if they are having a bottleneck) is a good enough test. A full down/up speed test would check what the full scope of your speed is based on your ISP. So yeah that would be the best solution, but for any fast test scenario, even a simple wget would do the trick since normally people worry more about download speed than upload.

comment Speed up booting time without losing choosing capability in grub
@rubo77 You can still access the menu by leaving SHIFT pressed or ESC (Don't remember which right now). Or tapping at one of those.

comment How does `>` and `>>` work?
@EmilJeřábek you are correct. Still users that do not know how it behaves will have it easier if we go step by step with only the commands. Also your example is still sending the information to the same file, so bash will read that whole line, see the output and still open AND truncate it. The error is simply the stderr outputting to stdout.

comment How does `>` and `>>` work?
Correct, was looking for easier words to explain. Since it is a bit hard to explain if the OP does not know what a shell it and all that. Trying to make it as "friendly" as possible.

comment Too much noise while recording on 12.10
This was the solution for me, especially since this is my first time using headphones in the past 6 years and the Preference was still using the camera mic instead of the headphones. I would also add to this that the volume control in the Kazam preferences is used to know how much volume you want to capture. It is not related to the actual mic volume found in the Sound Settings of Ubuntu. In my case I put the kazam mic volume 100% and then adjusted the Sound volume to meet the correct amount.

comment Installing Ubuntu on a Pre-Installed Windows with UEFI
@Hellreaver excellent answer and thanks for the comment, but up to 14.10, there are still specific cases where this question still is relevant. I REALLY wish your answer would be THE ONE, since that would save me a lot of hassle. BTW +1 for the answer and letting me know another Ubuntu user is playing around with the whole Windows 8 issues. Great work.

comment No wifi at ALL Ubuntu 14.10
The bluetooth issue was probably fixed on a later Kernel version after 14.04. You might want to risk it if the BT is very important to you by using a mainline kernel version for ubuntu (type ubuntu kernel in google).

comment Black Screen with cursor - Booting from HardDisk & LiveCD
I would take the motherboard out (take the RAM out of it, CPU and battery which I am guessing it is a CR2032 battery). After removing everything from the motherboard and taking it out of the case, wash it down with water (No need for soap), pressured water so you can get inside every slot, every place of the motherboard and let it dry for 2-3 days (Recommended 3 days the first time if you have never done this before). After 3 days, you can connected everything to it but only connect the battery/ram/cpu and test with a liveusb. The add the hdd. Then add the PCI video card. Please let me know.

comment Black Screen with cursor - Booting from HardDisk & LiveCD
I see you have extensively tried to find the issue (Very few do it so methodologically so kudos). I would test without a hard drive, only RAM and MOBO/CPU. Insert a LiveUSB and run Memtest, let it run for 1 full pass, then go to the Live Ubuntu and play around with it (Internet, office, sound, terminal commands like lshw, lspci, etc..) For like an hour to make sure it is not the motherboard. Just in case you feel it is the motherboard (Because of lack of maintenance for example), my way of solving this is mentioned on the comment below because am out of characters ^^

comment No wifi at ALL Ubuntu 14.10
Also happening with a Qualcomm Atheros and a Broadcom b4313 so I do not think this is limited to the Intel. The procedure is basically the same. Connect a bluetooth speaker (In my case I tried the Samsung Bluetooth earphone) and after that, the whole Network Manager started having problems. Between failed connections and not offering an option to connect there is some relation between the bluetooth and the wireless here I would think.
