Q: Broken links starting with http://%20https://

MelebiusAn edit suggestion like this pretty often appears in the review queue. These edits are generally fixing http://%20https:// to https://. (%20 means an escaped space in URLs.) Does anyone know why such broken links appear so often? Shouldn’t they be corrected automatically?

@TheLittleNaruto I'm online now.
Q: Ubuntu best files to delete to free-up disk space?

AmraaroninI have very minimal disk space inside an ubuntu 14 LTS. I wan't to create a bash script to constantly free-up unused space. What are the most critical paths I can constantly delete? (e.g. temp files, random unused packages, etc)? any suggestions will help :)

@DKBose I am going to post that another question
Please feel free to add your answer
@TheLittleNaruto ok
6:31 AM

@TheLittleNaruto no problem!
6:42 AM
@DKBose Done! Thanks for doing the right thing.
@TheLittleNaruto you're welcome. Next time you post, it's useful to mention the KDE Plasma version (from KInfoCenter) because, if you're on Kubuntu 19.04 with backports enabled, things could be quite different than what we have with Kubuntu 18.04.
@DKBose I have Ubuntu 18.0.4.
@TheLittleNaruto So you're not using any version of Kubuntu?
@DKBose Yes not using KUbuntu; just installed plasma on existing GNOME
and switched
@TheLittleNaruto okay!

Q: sytemd reads file from /lib/systemd and ignores corresponding service file from /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/

ixMI have upgraded several servers from Ubuntu 14.04 to 18.04 with no issue. However, on a fresh Ubuntu 18.04 install, I have encountered a problem that seems strange.

@pLumo No, but there's no need to. You have a 24h "grace period" to award the bounty manually after it ends.
