comment App Won't Start On Bootup When Using Cron
@johnsmith, whether it opens a window itself or not is irrelevant; the command makes use of / requires a working GTK/X11/GUI session to operate. The second line of the man page description reads "The application is started with proper startup notification on a default display, unless specified otherwise". Here display refers to an X11 session identified by the DISPLAY environment variable, which cron jobs do not have, nor is there any guarantee that there even is an X11 server running on the system.

If sensors-detect doesn't detect your hardware, then... your hardware isn't supported.

comment can i hardware raid 0 windows 10 alongside ubuntu?
Your question is too unclear to be answerable in a q/a format, but it sounds like you have what is called a fake raid, and want to dual boot windows and ubuntu. If you are asking if this is possible, the answer is yes.

comment VRAM usage from DE
VRAM is managed by the video driver automatically. It isn't really something you can check on or manage, nor is there any need to.

comment Enable eth0 without plugging cable to connect to virtualbox bridge
Why do you have two separate networks instead of just using one? Normally you should have your router provide one network that you can either access via wireless or wired connections.

XChat also supports the IRC standard DCC file transfer system. What do you mean by image display? I don't recall mIRC having anything that I would call image display.
