comment Installing Times New Roman font
@hexafraction, I know, and I knew when I wrote my comment. Good manners never time out, in my opinion.

@Benjamin, hexafraction correctly asked you to accept their answer by clicking on the checkmark to the left of it. This is part of the etiquette of this and similar websites.

comment How to connect mtp android device to ubuntu 13.10
I didn't need (on 14.04) neither mtp-tools nor mtpfs. What I needed was to log in to my phone! (Samsung GT-i8150 aka Galaxy W)

comment Problem with printing (hplip) in Ubuntu 14.04
If I remember well, I tried to use hp-setup (amongst others) to get my HP LaserJet 1020 to reliably print in 14.04, but had to give up and buy an HP LaserJet Professional P1102, which works flawlessly. (In case someone wonders why I didn't buy the wireless model: because I don't like electromagnetic pollution.)

comment How to use Fixedsys in the Gnome Terminal, or wherever monospaced fonts are required
PhpStorm 7.1 on 14.04 does not recognize the font I describe in my answer as being a monospaced font, I don't know why :-( Luckily, if you uncheck "show only monospaced fonts", you can still get it. For some reason the size must be either 15 or 16 (they look the same) instead of 12. PhpStorm seems to be a bit buggy to me...

comment nvidia-libopencl1-331 has to be removed before installing WINE
I followed this recipe out of despair, and it worked. I will upvote it only when I will have a clear understanding of all its "side effects", though.

comment How to print only even or odd pages (HP LaserJet 1018)
For printing pdf files with Document Viewer, the option in the Print dialog box is (as you said) in the Page Setup tab, and is called Only print, with values All sheets, Even sheets and Odd sheets

comment “Failure to download extra data files” after installing ttf-mscorefonts-installer
For the benefit of people looking for this solution, I'll add that you can get into this problem by installing Wine (wine is not mentioned on this page yet).

Solution 1 solved my problem on 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr). Shift-Tab to select "OK", then Enter and Enter again.
