comment Fixing boot animation for 14.04
Make sure you don't have remnants of old kernels, as these can cause update-initramfs -u to fail while updating certain boot elements. If it gives you errors like "grep: /boot/3.18.0 no such file or directory" then this is likely the cause. Removing old kernel artifacts fixed the issue for me.

comment Won't Hibernate when Battery Critical
Note to users who had to install laptop-mode-tools: it might cause your mouse to switch off after 2 seconds when the laptop is unplugged. I fixed this by opening /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/usb-autosuspend.conf and changing AUTOSUSPEND_USBTYPE_BLACKLIST="" to AUTOSUSPEND_USBTYPE_BLACKLIST="usbhid usb-storage". Detailed instructions here.

comment How do I restart Cinnamon from the tty?
This is first solution that's worked for me with no nasty side effects. For those who don't know.. if you can't start the terminal, press Alt+F2 to get to a TTY, login with an admin-capable account, become root, and then enter that command. You might have to Alt+F[n] to get back to your X TTY.
