comment How do I disable unity webapps notifications from popping up everytime I visit a supported webpage?
This doesn't exist any more in Firefox 38. I've tried NorTicUs dconf fix to see if that will do the job.

comment Why does Network Manager always ask for my keyring password?
@SamB, Of course not. I'm merely pointing out that anyone with root access to that box will see your Active Directory password if you're using PEAP.

comment How to compile bcmwl-ubuntu?
Absolutely fantastic - works perfectly on the Dell XPS13 Developer's Edition 2015 (9434, I think). I'd updated my Kernel to 4.0 to resolve trackpad issues on this laptop, but it's use of a Broadcom BCM4352 WIFI card really trips this up. Thanks!

comment Kingston Datatraveler won't mount in ubuntu 14.04
One year later, I've just bought 4 DataTraveler Kingston G4 keys and none of them will mount in Ubuntu 14.04LTS.2. If anyone knows why, I'd love to see an answer to this question.

comment Network connection error after suspend Ubuntu 14.04
Yeah, this works for me too. Hardly an idea solution though, right? I find I can also right click on Network Manager to disable, then re-enable WIFI. Pretty tedious, but it does the job.

comment After upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04, my shortcuts keys and media keys no longer work
Worked here too. I just used Dconf, browsed to Org/Gnome/Settings-Daemon/Plugins, then hit the "reset" button on all the media entries. Thanks for this.

Updated screenshot - updated text, because it doesn't match the screenshot any more.

comment Why is the firewall disabled by default?
Yep, probably true. That's a bad screenshot really, of an old PC where I just wanted the OpenDNS out of my logs. It's not good practice. If I get time, I'll try to update the screenshot, since GUFW looks pretty different these days anyway.
