I am doing some housekeeping on my activities and I noticed that I have a few flags that are disputed. In hindsight, they seem like reasonable disputes. Is there a way to retract my flags, or are these permanent?
What can I do to force unity lenses (locate in the background, I suppose) to scan a specific directory? The setting are not excluding the folder, and the rest is working OK.
Is there a way to purge Unity/lenses or locate? I wouldn't mind to lose all past searches and start again from null.

Set N to the desired timeout in case of a previously failed boot
Update Grub: sudo update-grub
^-- I've marked this one as "invalid flag". Was marked as "not an answer". I've improved formatting and I think this is an answer.

Suppose someone asks a question. It has two solutions - one is easier then the other, but the other one has some benefits of its own.

Please look at these two questions:

Taking screenshots in Lubuntu (11.10) [duplicate]
Although the first question didn't specify a specific desktop environment, the answer there relates to Unity/GNOME. The second question, even th...
@FarhanKarim Good grief. That's a lot. Take a few years off or start working in a company with Linux experts all around :) What's your current background? Windows? Do you have a certain practical project/goal you can accomplish by using Linux (and then learn by doing)?
I am not able to download any software. I have Obuntu version 11.0 and I keep getting the error message "There seems to be a programming error in aptdaemon, the software that allows you to install/remove software and to perform other package management related tasks." What should I try? Also, ...
So many of my questions are answered by going through the FAQs under Questions (not the FAQ you should read when you first start using AskUbuntu). There is a lot there.
How do I search that FAQ? I checked the advance search tips, but couldn't find what I was looking for. I could do it with whate...
In some circumstances it would be valuable for me to be presented with a short, text notification prior to logging in, so that I have the option to decide not to log in after seeing the message.
Is there a way to display a message on the login screen?
