During install fests we sometimes need to install grub on a disk that is currently not mounted on root. For example, if a system can't be booted from its hard drive, but can be booted from a live usb, we want to boot from the live usb and "repair" the hard drive by installing grub on the hard drive. Once the hard drive is "repaired," the system can be booted again from the hard drive.
The attached word doc shows a walk through of how to add a USB printer to the list of available printers in Lubuntu 13.10.
Hope it helps.

Todd and I spent a morning installing and configuring owncloud on the team server. Things worked fairly well - with essentially only one glitch that I'll discuss at the end.
owncloud was installed on a new virtual machine with Ubuntu server 12.04.3 as the initial install. Immediately after the install from an ISO image, the server was updated with the latest updates.
A web search suggested that there are only install packages for OpenSuse. Later on (more by accident) we found out that Ubuntu has an owncloud package, but we didn't use that.
The basic idea here is to add a VPN connection to an existing residential network. The way its implemented is as an add-on to the existing network, so that the existing network doesn't need to be modified at all. Turning off VPN is simply done by shutting down the PI, no other reconfigs necessary.
