My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines still ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I know about chips and cables but I believe that all software has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

Testdisk may be able to recover those parts of your directory that was not yet overwritten (see this Q&A) - if that fails you may have luck to recover the content of some files using PhotoRec.

Windows will not even be able to find a undeleted partition created for Ubuntu... so how should it be able to recover?

@chirlu: how should people at ELU know what a "Backpfeifengesicht" is? Isn't this a question that need expertise in German rather than in English?

comment Typing $ in the command line on Google Chrome
The location of $ depends on your keyboard layout (which?). Most layouts will have it on SHIFT+4 or ALTGr+4 but there are exceptions. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout

comment There is no menu buttons for GIMP 2.8 in Ubuntu 16.04?
Can't reproduce this here... all is as expected with both, single window and multiple window mode, and also with both, Ambiance and Radiance theme. What is your Gimp version?

comment How can I overcome using the snooze function of my alarm clock?
@OttoV.actually over time and by getting older I now have an urge different to my alarm that forces me out of bed. In addition I am also responsible for my kids to wake up for school by now. This alone is another strong means to overcome the evil snooze button. I just don't want to ruin the day of others.
