comment How can I make the sudo GUI work without the admin group?
Please edit your question and explain how you are giving them sudo privileges. Show us your /etc/sudoers file. Is there any reason you don't have them in the admin group in the first place?

comment Add particular strings to an array sed/awk/grep
OK, so what is? Anything starting with a space and copy?

comment Add particular strings to an array sed/awk/grep
What's a variable? Is MAX-ACCESS a variable?

comment Use common data folders for two users instead of separate ones
@ByteCommander one of the two users or even someone else. It's the group permissions that are important here.

comment Use common data folders for two users instead of separate ones
@ByteCommander OK, then link to both. I mean, create the directories and make links pointing to them in both $HOMEs. Everything else is the same.

comment Webpage download stops at <?php tag
@karel this is not a dupe. If that were the problem, the OP wouldn't be seeing the webpage at all. Here, the page is loading but only partially so the target URL is correct and the problem is elsewhere. Most probably that apache hasn't been set up correctly for php files .

comment Webpage download stops at <?php tag
When asking a question, tell us how you set something up, not just that you followed instruction "X". The details often matter. In any case, even if you don't, at the very least you should give us a link and not a title and expect us to go find it. Help us help you.

comment Execute .sh file, neither in terminal or interface+graphics card issue
You still haven't answered a single one of my questions. How did you "try to run it"? What commands did you "find around" what "forum"? We can't help unless you tell us what you're doing.

comment Press any key - Which key to press?
Full marks for effort, but I really don't see the point of this Q&A. Also, what @muru said.

comment Why not design having the softlink (symlink) and hardlink in the same “link”?
@GeorgePligor precisely: sometimes, not always. That's why I wouldn't want this to happen always. If I want it, I use hardlinks .

comment Why not design having the softlink (symlink) and hardlink in the same “link”?
@GeorgePligor I don't get it. Sometimes I want that to happen, so I use a hardlink. Other times, I don't want it to happen so I use a softlink. I don't see how we would gain anything other than a slower filesystem if we were to try and combine the two. End users need never know about hardlinks but why would you deprive power users of their functionality? More importantly, remember that all files are hardlinks, how would what you describe even work? The entire point of a symlink is that it's not actually pointing to an inode like a regular file (a hardlink).

comment Execute .sh file, neither in terminal or interface+graphics card issue
Please edit your question and tell us i) what you downloaded and from where; we need the exact file name. ii) if you're using 32 or 64bit Ubuntu iii) exactly how you tried to run the file you downloaded; what command did you try?

comment Why not design having the softlink (symlink) and hardlink in the same “link”?
@GeorgePligor but why? If you want them to be updated when files are moved, use a hardlink. If you want them to be relative, use a softlink. You can't have it all and I still don't understand why in the world you would want to. It's like wanting all hammers to also be screwdrivers.

comment Why not design having the softlink (symlink) and hardlink in the same “link”?
@GeorgePligor the end user might not but the sysadmin most certainly does. You do have both a link to the inode and a link to the path: hardlinks and symlinks :)

comment Sort by image resolution (dimensions)
@SylvainPineau does it still return something strange? It sorts correctly (2,5,1.15e+06,1.44e+06,1.45e+06) for me.

comment 2015 and they still can't get linux right
By the way, I have no idea what you're talking about. Linux is far better at supporting old hardware than pretty much anything else. We could actually help you if, instead of a rant, you had posted a question explaining what Linux you tried (they're not all the same, by the way and while Ubuntu == Linux, Linux != Ubuntu) and the graphics card you have. As it stands, this is a waste of your time and ours.

comment 2015 and they still can't get linux right
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a rant and not a question.

comment how to transfer files from windows 8.1 to ubuntu?
Set the Windows PC to export the target directories with SMB (samba) and then connect to your router with a cable. We can't help with the details though, since that involves setting up file sharing on Windows. I suggest you delete this and ask on Super User instead.
