comment How can I delete U+200B (Zero-width space) using sed
Does your copy of sed support the Unicode encoding that the file is encoded with? If not there is probably no good way to do it properly with sed, and you'd better use a python script or something like that...

comment How can I upgrade my ubuntu system from the command line?

Otherwise, try Alt+F2, then start the command "metacity --replace" to get a window manager running first.

The "visual effects" settings are in System --> Preferences --> Appearance. Are you sure you can't open that dialog?

comment Free/Open Source program to share a USB device (e.g. a scanner)
There are other ways to share a scanner, but I only know the USB/IP project to share USB devices. Unfortunately only the client side is available for Windows (the server side, to run on the machine where you connect the USB device to, is only available for linux it seems).

There is no "clipboard" in an Ubuntu Server though (it doesn't have a GUI, at least not in a default install).
