comment Ubuntu 16.04: ' Open in Terminal' context menu on desktop opens it only in home directory
"I have seen others do this often" They do it in comments though, thats the thing, we don't keep duplicate questions we remove them to keep the site clean and organized "Sorry if this offended you" Does not offend me, the downvote is just a good way to get peoples attention, here is some information on duplicates meta.stackexchange.com/questions/10841/… I will remove my vote so you don't lose any rep.

If it is a duplicate, you should flag it as such or leave a comment not copy someone elses answer and present it as your own -1

comment Ubuntu 16.04 “Nvidia GPU Driver” can not use proprietary driver
"It would make sense if I lost reputation, but I don't" yes you do. "I have not presented it as my own" Yes you have, if this was voted up you would make rep off someone else's work. "it would be worse if I simply marked this question as a duplicate" No, we keep one version of each question to keep the site clean and organized, that is how this site works. I am done with this, you seem to think that presenting someone else's work as your own is OK, it is not.

There are many reasons to downvote, I downvoted this because you took someone else's answer and presented it as your own, we have a system for presenting other answers to the OP. Why should I attack you? Thats ridiculous, I don't know you or anything about you, my issue is with this answer, not you as a person. I gave you the chance to defend it, thats more than most users would. "morally wrong" Thats not my point, low rep users often just don't understand how the site works, had you just taken that on board, I would of just said "OK be careful in future" changed my vote and moved on.

comment Ubuntu 16.04 “Nvidia GPU Driver” can not use proprietary driver
I'm not starting anything, just asking you to explain why you copy pasted someone else's answer as your own, then you tell me it is not about broken packages but your answer says it is, I just want to make sure I make the best use of my votes, you are under no obligation to explain. Copying other peoples answers, even if you provide a link to that answer is not allowed, you should leave a comment saying it is a duplicate, that is my concern, your other comments just confused me.

Yes it does it says Opera right in the question, don't just look at the title read the whole question.

comment Ubuntu 16.04 “Nvidia GPU Driver” can not use proprietary driver
You said "This isn't a duplicate, he's not asking about broken packages" but your answer says "Another possible solution is to use synaptic package manager to fix the broken packages" and the OP error is "you have held broken packages" I don't see how a question about fixing broken packages is not an obvious fix for a broken packages error, also you tell me it is not about broken packages but your answer says it is, do you see my confusion here?

comment How do I install adobe flashplayer in ubuntu 16.04?
The question states "I need the flashplayer for Opera.", how does installing chrome help at all? -1 this does not answer the question.

Then why did you link another question on the site as your source if it is not the same answer?

If you lack experience with the terminal, you can just double click the .deb file to install it.

comment How can I install the Opera browser from the terminal?
Based on the earlier comment by muru, the deb contains the PPA already, like chrome, so yes.

You should report that here bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-software/+bug/1573206 other users confirm it is fixed, the bug only effects the package gnome-software any other package manger apt, dpkg, synaptic, gdebi etc will work fine.
