comment Ubuntu 12.04 not loading after installing updates - initctl: Event failed
@AvinashRaj thanks that worked! Everything seems to be working fine now, so why do I need the nvidia drivers anyway? You can add your comment as an answer and I'll accept it.

comment How to add a password option in CLI?
So in my case I would do <user> ALL=(ALL:ALL) NPASSWD:path/to/command? What is the actual path to the network-manager restart command? I'm not a savvy user...

comment Can't connect to certain HTTPS sites
The normal "Wired" connection didn't pick anything up. I've now added the tcpdump at the bottom of my question with some more details about why I'm using PPPoE. Also if you need more information from the dump please tell me.

I've tried running curl with --sslv3 and it still doesn't work. Also I tried to capture the dump but it doesn't seem to be working? tcpdump: WARNING: eth0: no IPv4 address assigned 0 packets captured 6 packets received by filter 0 packets dropped by kernel - I'm not sure how to assign the IPv4... I will have to try the rest tomorrow as it's getting late and my brain isn't working well. Thanks for your help everyone so far!

1) Sorry not sure how to do both these things. cyberciti.biz/faq/setting-up-an-network-interfaces-file - not sure what IP addresses to add. 2) I've added both of those in the original question. 3) I'll see if I have that option tomorrow (modem etc. is in roomate's room). 4) Same as above although I have restarted the router at least. 5) Tried a few times. 6) I don't have another comp with ubuntu, these connections work however when I switch to Windows. 7) Tried that.

@adempewolff the router is new. At least new to this computer since I just moved in to the apartment - never had this problem on this laptop before... I haven't changed SSL although after all these problems I tried to update them but it said they were up to date already...

@Shauna I'm using Chrome and it's saying Error 7 (net::ERR_TIMED_OUT): The operation timed out. FireFox just keeps trying to load but never does (the page doesn't change). Console and Network don't give me anything...

comment Cropping videos to perfectly fit YouTube 16:9 dimensions with PiTiVi or Kdenlive?
crop didn't work for me for some reason, but I've finally found out how to record exact dimensions with RecordMyDesktop, you need to use the CLI with something like: recordmydesktop --width 1280 --height 720 --full-shots --fps 15 --channels 1 --device hw:1,0 --delay 4 --no-sound -y 100
