  1. Doesnt work. and it likely doesnt work on so many flavors of linux that its laughable. This probably worked on ONE machine with ONE distro with special circumstances.

    1. I have used this how-to several times in different machines and it has worked in all of them. Used it on my personal desktop and my Surface Pro 3 with Elementary OS, Linux Mint and Ubuntu GNOME installations. Are you sure the problem is not on your end?
