comment How to find the version of the Dash shell on Ubuntu /bin?
These are not different. dpkg and apt-cache tell the version of bash as 4.2, where as bash --version tells it as 4.2.37. In effect, bash --version tells you all the revisions, whereas dpkg and apt-cache just tell you the major versions, omitting the minor versioning. Think of it as rounding off. You can round off 1.231 to 1.23, and you'd still be somewhat correct.

comment how do you implement a progress bar using Python / glade web browser
Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Most programming questions are off-topic here; they can be asked on Stack Overflow. If your question is Ubuntu-specific (for example, if this code does work with some compiler on some OS), it would be on-topic.

comment How can I set CTRL+SHIFT+W to open an internet browser?
This means that this shortcut is already set to perform that particular action. You can confirm it by going to different settings. Infact, in firefox, chrome, and opera, pressing this key combination closes the window.

It's likely that you're just booting off your thumbdrive without installing (calles Live Session). You should install Ubuntu once you boot through your thumbdrive. Instructions here.

comment How to change the default permission when creating a file in ubuntu
Post the answer and accept it. :) Also, sudo grants you superuser privileges, that is why if you need to edit some system files or run a program with root privileges, you have to use sudo. There is another command called gksudo which has the same effect except that it is used for graphical applications.

And the output of echo $USERNAME? Also, what command do you use to create a file using vi ?
