comment chrubuntu installation help
@LiveWireBT, my comment then is completely invalid, I guess. :) Now I see (before I was blind, maybe ? ) a bunch of related links at the right side of the page. Thanks.

comment Keyboard Backlight not working
This doesn't make sense. I mean, if you installed the exact same version, it should be worked. Is your system up to date? Maybe, on old installation, you used any extra configuration about backlight ?

comment chrubuntu installation help
What is this chrubuntu thing ? You don't tell us what the exact problem is. Black screen, cannot be installed, any error messages ? Read here on how you can boot with nomodeset option, if that helps.

comment Dropbox 'Copy Public Link' in Thunar file manager (Xfce)
Though you can use dropbox puburl only in your Public folder, anywhere else you will get an error like Couldn't get public url: Unknown Error , thumbsup for this answer.

added -H parameter in sudo, due to gedit (GUI).

comment How can I permanently remove the boot option “quiet splash”?
I added sudo again as an alternative. At 14.04 (that I have) pkexec works as it should. It seems that you have to provide some variables in order for pkexec to work properly. Try pkexec env DISPLAY=$DISPLAY XAUTHORITY=$XAUTHORITY gedit

@TrailRider , the correct one (from now on) is pkexec and not gksudo (as you said correctly it has been removed due to some problems).

comment Files being wiped by cloud storage services
Ubuntu One Files, either way, will be suspended soon enough. So, don't bother with it. As for Grive, this isn't a Google official Client for Linux and Ubuntu has nothing to do with it. If this happens on other occasions (e.g. you are moving any file and its get wiped...etc) rephrase your question, because I see it as offtopic right now.

comment Boot Windows 8 after migration from HDD to SSD
As I have said, this is likely a Windows problem due to its bootloader. Try to restore Windows bootloader to Disk's MBR and then again, restore Grub.

comment Boot Windows 8 after migration from HDD to SSD
How you migrated ? What method you used ? In Linux/Unix-Like OSs where "everything is a file" it's very easy to migrate with a simple command, but Windows (OS) is not the same. Depend on the method you used, it is likely this could be a Windows problem and not Ubuntu/Linux.
