comment How can I get samba users from the same group to edit each others files?
Can you verify the unix permissions for the files created by "joe"?

You shouldn't use inherit permissions with create mode/directory mode, as it overrides their behavior. That said your configuration should work if "jane" is a member of somegroup.

comment How do I make the PolicyKit authentication agent window not dissapear when I enter faulty password in Gnome-Shell Ubuntu 12.04?
That is the limit of my experience with PK. As a work around, you may try creating a new .desktop file for synaptic that uses gksudo instead of pkexec. I don't know if gksudo will perform better, but it may. The fact that the behavior is different with Gnome Shell would indicate that this may be a bug. Perhaps someone else will have a better solution. Good Luck.

@JordanUggla I happen to agree, Why buy a tool that might work, when you already have one you know will work. Thanks for the input. Great Solution FWIW.

comment Monitor shows 'no signal' after Nvidia driver installation (ubuntu 12.04 amd64)
I' glad that it is at least working. You could use this ppa then install nvidia-graphics-drivers if you want to try the newest stable drivers (295.53). It may cause the same problems, but it may work. Good Luck

If I may ask, what changed to make nouveau work? When you installed the nVidia Driver, did you install nvidia-current or nvidia-current-updates?

This is strange. On my system (also 12.04) I get 3 tries. What does your /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/com.ubuntu.pkexec.synaptic.policy file look like? Specifically the defaults - allow_active field. If it is auth_admin_one_shot that would explain the behavior. If so, just change it to auth_admin.

@Jordan Uggla: Would SYSLINUX or EXTLINUX provide for an easier solution to what the OP is looking for? You obviously know more about this than I do. What do you think?

Also, you may try apt-get purge instead of remove in the command above. This is a Hail Mary, admittedly.

That's too bad. Do you have /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-current-updates_hybrid.conf or /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf or anything similare in /etc/modprobe.d that could be blacklisting nouveau?

Can you try sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current nvida-current-updates nvidia-settings from terminal followed by sudo mv /usr/X11/xorg.conf /usr/X11/xorg.conf.nvidia.old and see what happens. You will need to reboot. This should drop you back to the nouveau drivers. If that works, you can try to reinstall the nvidia-current-updates driver from Additional Hardware. Let me know how it pans out.

comment recovering raid 0 hard disk
If all of the data on the third disk is replaceable, you might try to copy the data from the "bad" disk to the third disk and restore the array. This might save some of the data. The instructions on the Ubuntu Community Wiki may be helpful here.

comment recovering raid 0 hard disk
Unfortunately, this is the real limitation with RAID 0. Because the filesystem is written across both devices and different blocks of single files are spread between the two, a failure in one device is mostly a failure of both. This is somewhat by design as your system can write 1/2 of the blocks to one device while synchronously (almost) writing to the other, performance is increased. What make are your hard disks? You might be able to use the manufacture's recovery tools to check the disks. It is a long shot, but worth a try if there is a lot of data at stake.
