@Samik I've removed the package installation link. It also works for me in preview but not once submitted. I'm not sure how to fix it. I recommend posting on meta about this (with the bug tag). But if you're not able to, I'll probably get around to it later.
@jokerdino I see what you mean, but I think the OP's intent here is clear. More importantly, having this as a duplicate (with its current comments) suggests to anyone else wanting to keep an old version of skype that they just have to pin and save one package. I think reopening is probably better for the community, even if the OP doesn't care one way or the other. I do think we should edit the title if we reopen it, and I haven't done this myself in case people disagree.
@AnwarShah I'm fine with that too. I mean I was waiting before editing. (After all, it can also be edited after an answer is given.) If I see it reopened and unanswered, I'll post my answer. (But as I said, anybody else can post it too.)
@jokerdino The OP presumably wrote the post originally. This page is a statement of intent to use (some versions or other of the) GPL and GFDL, but I'm not sure whether or not it actually constitutes permission to distribute the content under those licenses.
Anyway, the OP has posted it here as an answer, so assuming the OP is the original author, now it's separately offered under CC-BY-SA 3.0 and no separate copyright statement is needed. (Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer.)
@jokerdino CC-BY-SA 3.0 doesn't require that the original author be contacted. If the OP doesn't want to offer it without such a restriction, he should delete the post. (Even then, anyone who does access it through AU or anywhere copied from AU probably does have the right to redistribute it under CC-BY-SA 3.0.)
This question is corresponding to the edit by Eliah Kagan to my answer to
Is it possible to have a small indicator showing that updates are available (red for security updates) instead of having the update manager pop up?
The issue is while the software centre icon was visible in the edit ...
The title pretty much sums up the question.
If a question has already an accepted answer, should I still try to answer it?
Provided that the answer is not similar to the accepted answer, but an alternative method which may also solve the problem.
I know this is probably not the place to ask, but i'm fairly desperate.... I didn't get an answer on my question and i'm at my wits end..... how is it that my ubuntu server boots up fine in recovery mode but the standard selection fails every time, even tho the entries are identical (grub entries that is) ?
I just installed Ubuntu Server again. I've done that quite a few times before.
I try starting the system and get to the point where it changes the font on the screen. A little while after that the monitor flickers and I just get a black screen. After that it flickers some more and doesn't respond...
@xyious You said when you try to boot normally, the font changes, the monitor flickers, and it goes black and doesn't respond to anything. What are the things you've tried? Did it not respond to Ctrl+Alt+F1, Ctrl+Alt+Delete, and Alt + SysRQ + R E I S U B ?
@Mitch You may be able to find a PPA that provides a package for 12.04, though, which might work even better, and may be easier to update.
I'm trying to assign a bash variable the value of a json key, but my regular expression isn't working, can someone help? This is what I'm trying: curl "http://example.org/test.json" -s | grep -Po '"jsonKeyName":.*?[^\\]",'
@AmithKK I don't think that is correct. My understanding of nomodeset is that it makes the kernel not load a video driver until X is running. I don't think its value is limited to systems with X installed. @xyious's description makes it sound like everything stops working when the framebuffer is initialized.
ok, if i change a few things in the grub entry i manage to get a login prompt.... but before i log in i get scrolling error text .... warning watchdog overflow callback.... hardware name: MS-7519. any of that ring a bell ?
