+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.

comment How to fix “The system is running in low-graphics mode” error?
@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.

comment Why is terminal telling me that my .rar file is not a RAR archive?
I wonder, why not install the 7z-rar module and run 7z for it. It handles a lot of RAR issues pretty good.

comment Wifi speed dropping for HP Pavilion 15-n097sa [SOLVED]
Yes, 3.14.x fixes many network issues. It fixed a couple of Wireless issues I was having with newer motherboards (Like Asus and MSI) and it also fixed on the same models Bluetooth issues. I don't know if this will be backported to 3.13 but I know that 14.10 will have all this issues fixed.

I have updated the question to include a bit more info, specifically with the packages used. Packages I mean the ones called inside the go code.

comment Remove RECYCLER directory from virus infected flash drive
@MMA Great job. Chkdsk does create those folders because this were parts of the filesystem (files or folders) that were not assigned to anything, so he creates this temp folders so you can choose where to put the recovered files. I will add some tips that could create this problem apart from a virus.

comment Missing adobe helvetica bold fonts
@Braiam Are you sure because searching for "Helvetica TTF" gives me too many results where I can download the .ttf file. I don't know much about which are or which are not, but the answer is pointing to how to add more fonts (easily) to Ubuntu. BTW a comment would have been enough.

comment NVidia 331 driver with ubuntu 13.10 - graphics crash
Ok After reading the paste there are a couple of small issues there. The one I need you to fix is line 841 where it mentions that there is a API mismatch which just means that the kernel has a module version different from the one you downloaded and so there will be hell to pay!!. You need to purge the nvidia drivers (All of them except for nouveau. All nvidia-* packages, this means 304, 310, 313, 334, 3xx....) reboot the computer and make sure that in syslog there is no API mismatch. After that we can continue or you can test again with 1 single version.

No problem, the ones that can help are in /var/log. The files are dmesg, syslog & Xorg.0.log. Upload them to paste.ubuntu.com
