Monkey see, monkey do is a saying that originated in Jamaica in the early 18th century and popped up in American culture in the early 1920s. The saying refers to the learning of a process without an understanding of why it works. Another definition implies the act of mimicry, usually with limited knowledge and/or concern of the consequences.
The saying probably originates from the folklore of Mali, West Africa, made well known by Esphyr Slobodkina's retelling, which she calls Caps for Sale (A Tale of a Peddler, Some Monkeys and Their Monkey Business). There are also various other versio...
After an insane amount of comment-troubleshooting, it turns out this guy has set up a firewall which denies HTTP connections with a 200 OK and a bogus response, which causes APT, amongst other things, to fail with cryptic errors (stdin is not bzip file, etc.). <headbang>

I think AU should have something like the eBay feedback-reminder system, where if a +2 or higher upvoted answer exists, but has not been accepted, and the OP hasn't been online for say 30 days or longer, it sends them a polite email about it and ask them to consider accepting or add comments to encourage more on-point answers...
###User has become impatient about lack of helpful replies (same day version) Not all questions are answered the day they are posted. You can check out [other Ubuntu help resources](http://www.ubuntu.com/support), but whether or not you decide to use some of those resources now, I counsel patience. Most of us "experts" have lives outside of $SITENAME$, school/jobs, and other commitments. We're volunteers who may or may not be able to respond quickly to assist you or anyone else (and you'll find that's the case for the other free support resources too). If that doesn't work for you, you migh…
@jokerdino As for other times... Sometimes I manually edit userscript comments slightly to fit the situation, which may create the impression that I always type it myself ...but that's not my intention.
@aking1012 Unlike some questions (and answers), I don't think it is actually the OP's intention to be insulting. Usually when people are trying to be insulting they insult the community, people in it, or Ubuntu itself, whereas this user has characterized Ubuntu as not being user friendly, as being responsible or his CD burning problem, and as hard to escape from.
Typically apt does include PPA repositories if the PPA has a newer version available, and Ubuntu Software Center uses APT, so if the PPA has a newer version, it will use the PPA. If the PPA has a older version, it will use the repository with the newer version.
I upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04, had no issues that I noticed. Recently tried to install something via software center, but it was throwing errors. Changed to trying to sudo apt-get install instead but again no luck. I've genuinely tried as much as I know to fix this, but I can't so I figured I'd ...
@izx In my opinion, it is not appropriate to flag that answer. It answers the question, and the information it gives is wrong. Seems like a wrong answer. I think we should only flag if it's not an attempt to answer the question, or if the answer is so poorly stated that it is impossible for the vast majority of readers to understand and it can't be improved, or if the answer contains willfully dangerous instructions or undisclosed self-promotion.
Ah, I see your point. What do we do about his comment though: *Ubuntu gets it's packages from Debian, which means all Debian packages are imported. Debian has not acknowledged a new version of GIMP nor has the Ubuntu team. I suggest opening either a bug report, or talk to developers in #ubuntu-bugs on freenode, maybe.*
@izx Maybe reply briefly to it, if you consider it seriously wrong. I haven't checked the latest version of gimp in sid. Filing bugs is one way to request something be packaged, though the IRC suggestion is silly. Generally speaking, it is true that all Debian packages are imported into Ubuntu, though it would be great if he'd specified that they are only imported when an Ubuntu release is still in development.
I ran a clean install to Ubuntu 12.04 and so far everything has been working well. I especially commend the Ubuntu team for this release.
I only noticed that the size of repository update is now about ~13MB. Normally, it is about this size for the first time you run apt-get update after a clean ...
What should be the answer of this question askubuntu.com/q/154097/61218, Is it good if I only tell him that, "Wubi" is not supposed to be standard Ubuntu install method, and in it's homepage it was said that, this method has disadvantage of slow harddisk access? with some good link.
or I should tell him exactly why "Wubi" is slow with all technical details?
@AnwarShah The answer that's already been posted, about using a different I/O scheduler, might potentially help, though. In any case, I think it may be worthwhile, if you were to comment suggesting that it being a Wubi system may be contributing to the slow performance.
@klox That's the solution, then! Please see this answer, except you will put your systemwide proxies in /etc/profile, NOT /etc/environment; the APT stuff still goes into that 95proxies file; restart and things should work!
@EliahKagan In theory, assuming video is via the basic VESA framebuffer, a sustained NTFS-3G write using PIO fallback could pretty much make it look like your system was "frozen" -- and switching schedulers might not make it noticeably better, unless you throttle the IO rate
@EliahKagan: FWIW, I use this script with newb-pastebin-answer-linky (disclaimer: mine): `Please share the output of the following files and/or commands with us [(instructions in this answer)](http://askubuntu.com/q/152371/58612): `

@Mitch I would encourage you to keep your answer; it seems valuable to me.
It's not in any way bad to have multiple different answers to the same question.
@Mahesh That's an attempt to answer the question that might have the effect of actually answering the question. It might not be the best possible answer, but I think it's certainly an answer. I don't think it should be flagged as not-an-answer, for instance.
@Mahesh Plus, the system deals a lot better with bad answers than bad comments. Bad answers that don't qualify to be deleted by moderators can be downvoted, commented on, and improved by the community. None of these actions are possible for bad comments.
Your server can only access the internet via a proxy. Adding those variables tells your server which proxy to use, otherwise how would the poor server know? :D (I'll add this info in the answer in a few hours, please don't forget to upvote/accept it after that)
@jokerdino ROFL! I typically mute or set very low vol when I'm active, so NBD. Best of luck for your exams!
