comment No desktop after enabling root in Ubuntu!
@EliahKagan Sorry I can no longer remember the context of this it was 15 days ago and I revived no feedback but you may be right that it seems the OP is using a root profile so he should sudo -H gedit /root/.xsession-errors

comment Unable to install Ubuntu 14.04.02 desktop on Windows 7 Amd64
Please, how did you make the DVD ie. what program did you use ? Two simple things to try before going forward are change the SATA controller type from IDE to AHCI in Bios and try another DVD burn, these are the most common issues with this error

comment Set sound device for individual applications using alsa
Can you elaborate on this ? Are you saying its not possible ? What are these programs you mention ? How does this in anyway answer my question ? From your profile you seem knowledgeable on this subject, but I just don't get your point here

If by hacked you mean someone tried to get access to your pc remotely, this may be what you need askubuntu.com/questions/178016/…

comment need to check if my ubuntu 14.10 has been hacked
I don't know why this got flanged, it shouldn't of, but I down voted because of a lack of detail, I told you what areas were lacking, don't take it personally, how can anyone tell if your computer was hacked without access to it or at least a good explanation of how you use it and what you mean by hacked, you say "i was just looking for a guidance of a some linux tools or how to check my logs" Your question in no way says this, please update it so we can help, and I will change my vote.

-1 This is far too vague, what makes you think you are "hacked" ? this is unlikely, do you mean you have a virus, here's some reading on basic security, including vulnerability and how to improve your security wiki.ubuntu.com/BasicSecurity, but we need more info on your specific issue to help you, do you use a firewall or anti-virus, how/when/where were you "hacked"
