I can reproduce this. It's a bug. On an Ubuntu live CD, the filesystem that contains the default user's home directory is type overlayfs, which claims to support inotify but doesn't. So tail -f on a file on overlayfs tries to use inotify and then doesn't get any notifications when the file has changed. The Ubuntu bug report for this is Bug #882147: ...

The software you are looking for is called "cool-old-term" and is available on github. It emulates the look of a CRT and is based around konsole (KDE's terminal) and requires QT 5.2 or newer. The readme has instructions for getting it working on Ubuntu 14.04 and Arch. The examples on the github page show a few other variations on the CRT look and the ...

You can really extract the contents of all the package and drop it in your root directory, but that doesn't mean they will be working properly. You have no way of ...

I don't think there is any such thing as country local and global versions of Ubuntu packages! If you are just referring to what repository mirror you downloaded the packages from, that shouldn't make a difference, and there is nothing to "replace". Packages in the Ubuntu repository are cryptographically signed and ultimately verified against a release ...
