firefox & translate.google.com (sayit button) & no sound
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2012
When I visit a site translate.google.com and type some word a button "say-it" speaker picture (span.jfk-button-img ) appears. But it doesn't play sound. It was working in past but after some updates (firefox updates) it is not working. Other sound in firefox, as playing youtube videos, works OK. Please does anybody know which MIME it is or which plug-in do I need?

About installing Qt creator by downloading binaries from qt.nokia.com
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 30, 2012
Has anyone tried installing Qt creator by downloading binaries from qt.nokia.com?
The website recommends downloading the entire SDK which is 700 MB odd in size. I can't download a file of that size using my internet connection. Anyway what I really need is Qt creator which requires downloading about 130 MB packages from the repositories. I can't access the repos on my internet connection either.
I'd like to know if it'd be sufficient to download the Qt creator binary file and the Qt libraries from the website and install them. All I need to do is to create a simple GUI in C++. I don't have to make any embedded or mobile application.
Please reply if you have any experience regarding this.
Phishing attempt at Linux.com

I'm not sure where to post this but I figure here is as good a place as any. If the moderators need to move it thats OK with me.
So here's the problem. I joined the Linux.com community on May 17. I made it a point to leave the contacts fields in the enrollment
form blank, further I made sure only friends could view my profile
but the radio button to allow messages from Linus.com is checked yes.
Today I received a message at the email account that is supposed to be known only to Linux.com.
It was from an Elizabeth and appeared to be a friend invitation.
It was however a "phishing" attempt
The text of the message is posted below.

New Cloud Sync service Copy.com
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2013
There's a new Cloud sync service that is cross-platform called `Copy`. I first read about this at OMG! Ubuntu (‘Copy’ – New Cloud Storage Service With Apt Name, Linux Clientx).
Copy, a relatively new entry into the ‘cloud storage’ service arena, has a very apt name. Aside from supporting Linux out of the box from day dot the rest of its offerings are, sadly, fairly predictable.
On the ‘cons’ side the privacy and security policies safeguarding your data aren’t quite as robust as competitors; it can’t auto-sync; and the app gives no indication/notification that a file has completed syncing.
The gimmick they are using is that you get 5GB for free, and for every referral you get to sign up You and Them both get +5GB bonus. So you get 5 more GB of space and the person signing up gets 10GB. So if you get 9 people to sign with your reference code up you'll 50GB of space.
It isn't as integrated as Ubuntu One, an
Can't access drive.google.com on any browser
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 14, 2013
Hello, i'm at a cafe, logged onto their free wifi network. I'm able to access my Gmail, Google Calendar, and any other website, but when I go to Google Drive (drive.google.com), Chrome browser gives me this error message:
The site's security certificate is not trusted!
You attempted to reach drive.google.com, but the server presented a certificate issued by an entity that is not trusted by your computer's operating system. This may mean that the server has generated its own security credentials, which Chrome cannot rely on for identity information, or an attacker may be trying to intercept your communications.
You cannot proceed because the website operator has requested heightened security for this domain.
I've tried with Opera and Firefox, and they also say the same thing. Please help.

I'm trying to set up Apache2 to use VirtualHosting.
