You can then upgrade the current one you have to the latest by simply downloading the latest virtualbox. Then folllow up with the correct installation. Remember that you can NOT use an extension with any other virtualbox version than the one it mentions. The 4.3.16 will only work with the same one.

comment smbtree produces no output
@dln949 Depends if you are in a domain or workgroup. On the type of authentication, on how the network works and other factors. I normally do not explain that until the user tells me the network topology, domain type, client types, etc.. Too many answers when they use that many options.

comment 14.04 won't fully shut down laptop
Hi TheDunadan, thank your for the question but this is a bug. In your particular case it is VERY important you mention this bug following the bug reports step provided on the close message (The link of reported on launchpad". I mention this is important because you might have a bug that is affecting all users on the same hardware and reporting this bug can help developers solve this issue and help all ThinkPad T61p users. So become a hero for all ThinkPad users ^^.

comment Meeting My Video editor needs
I was going to mention kdenlive, even on some other similar questions about a month ago, but till this day, kdenlive fails to start, if it does, it has a huge potential on crashing and if I do get to put everything together to the transcode the video, it crashes. I know if offers many features, but I rather stick with something stable, in my case with an Intel i7, 32GB of RAM it should not have an excuse to crash but still does. So I don't mention anything about it to others until I fee it is stable enough.

I would first try to start from a clean Samba configuration file. At the moment I do not have an idea (Working on something else) but my suggestion would be that. It can simplify where the problem is appearing when you tested this.

comment How do Ubuntu flavors compare regarding resource consumption and performance?
@Insperatus the question was pointed to the original comparison between versions since it still takes into consideration the information you are asking. I have removed the bounty you added. If you wish to use it, you can do it on the duplicate question. Sorry for the trouble.

comment How to create a bootable USB with multiple ISO images in it
same thoughts for a couple of my answers LOL. I think they confuse "very bad answer" with "missing some additional information".. or they don't know they can comment on how to improve the answer.

I do NOT know what to do with the rest of the information. Please post the file as you actually see it with cat /etc/fstab.

comment How do Ubuntu flavors compare regarding resource consumption and performance?
Curious that this question came up exactly at this time. I am doing a pretty long test on all 8 flavors of Ubuntu. From resource usage, to desktop and more, with the intention of helping out new users decide which one helps the most.

comment Wine needs uninstall of nvidia-cuda-toolkit that I need too!
Then your case might be related to conflict between PPA. Do you have any other PPA added? Like the Xorg one?. To answer your question, it is possible to have both installed. I have them right now working together. In my case I have the 304 libopencl for example but I just updated to 343 with no problem. Try it again, if not send me an email to luisalvarado@ubuntu.com and I'll be glad to help you directly and find out what is happening in the first place.

comment How to use Telegram with any IM app
That's rather bleak right now with Pidgin. I would think they had it implemented already since they are typically the first ones. They have an opened bug report / feature request here bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=727143 but I feel it is the actual Telegram Protocol which should be made compatible with Telepathy. Time will tell when this will happen.

comment Stuck in low-graphics mode, normal method not working
@schwiz correct. I even would go out and suggest to do a "reinstall" of the packages just in case one of them does not install but still is missing a configuration file. That would be like "sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop xserver-xorg"

You can fix it from there or recovery. I am glad that at least F4 works. I would do a full upgrade from there, many times an update will fix this.

comment Wine Issues with Installing
First this is a unmet dependency error which i have added as duplicate to the correct question. Second please follow my wine guide to properly install and configure wine. With both of this questions you should be well on your way on having wine working in no time.

Please use the wine ppa. It should be offering the 1.7.25 version and not have that issue.
