comment Transmission causes internet to stop working - log off required to make it work again
-1 since the original question specifically rules out router issues. I happen to be having the same problem, but with deluge. And I have ruled out the router as well (by using different devices).

comment Package failed to install, but does
basically what it is saying is that the open source java web plugin has failed to install properly. It's the same error in all 3 pastes. I might start by removing the offending java packages, and then starting over somehow, checking to see if java is working and if not, following a standard guide to install the java you want.

comment How do I create a local repository accessible from a local chroot environment for O/S building?
Are you sure you need the repository part? I thought apt automatically checked it's local repository for a .deb. If you tried to install stuff and it didn't work, maybe you hadn't run apt-get update yet.

I will edit the answer with the man page info on --bind. It is important that you understand what that mount command is doing. It makes the two directories into a single directory at two locations. So, to reuse, you just use a similar mount command. I will edit the answer to see if I can clarify.

comment Installed Flash plugin version 13 - video still not working
Only flash 11 is available for firefox; where did you get 13? Chrome has an updated version of flash, but which is not compatible with firefox, so make sure you haven't gotten that.

comment How to install Nvidia proprietary drivers?
It looks like you need at least version 334, which isn't even available in vivid. Who knows why the nvidia driver is so outdated

comment KDE - run particular commands in particular workspace at startup
I've been working on some script that uses wmctrl. I could share that if you like. My interest was in placing windows in certain locations on the screen. There is an option to pick a desktop as well.

comment Trying to fix broken dependancies ( Libre Office)
More information is needed, like what version of Ubuntu you are using, and whether or not you are using a ppa.
