comment How to quiet Ubuntu 15.04 noisy syslog
As mgor and Reid point out, loglevel=warn isn't valid. You can only set "debug", which is the noisy default, or "info" which seems to have fixed this for me. This possibly "worked" for the OP because thermald looks like it exits when you specify the invalid option...

comment Noise messages in the syslog from thermald
Turns out, thermald only supports loglevel=debug (the default) or loglevel=info, which worked for me. I'll put a comment on that answer you linked to.

comment How to run “sudo apt-get update” through proxy in commandline?
Jeremy, you're taking the same on/off approach to security as the Seahorse devs. I'm not saying to make this stuff impossible, just make it hard. Right now, stealing credentials from an unlocked Ubuntu laptop is trivial - maybe five clicks and you've got it. The same is not true of Windows - it might still be possible, but even I wouldn't know how to do it. There is no simple way to lift a password from a Windows machine in the 10 minutes or so you might leave a workstation unlocked by accident. Do the same in Ubuntu and you might as well hand in your resignation. It's not good enough.

comment Noise messages in the syslog from thermald
Just noticed my syslog full of these too - Ubuntu 14.04, 64-bit, running on a Dell XPS13. No idea what's causing it (nor indeed how long it's been happening), but at least you now know that you're not alone...

comment Chrome two finger scroll then right clicks
Happening here too. I notice that if you let the scroll-action stop, THEN take your fingers off the touchpad, there's no right click. It only happens if you take your fingers off the touchpad while Chrome is still scrolling. I use the wheel-smooth-scroll extension, so I wondered if that was related... but disabling it does nothing.

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.
