Yes, I have mentioned that in my original post. In VLC and MPlayer they work perfectly as expected.

comment Check integrity of a dd backup
Usually when you dd, it is always perfect. However, you can always run sha1sum to check the sha1 hashes of the original and backup.

@Alex thanks for your inputs. I'll look into the policykit framework and pklocalauthority.

comment How do DE's call ACPI functions?
Thanks for those commands! I'll look up more on dbus and dbus-send now.. However, I still have the question, if I can make this call without root privileges isn't it a security threat? Anyone with the said knowledge could power-off my machine without root access. What I mean is that the whole point of required root privileges for calling poweroff and reboot is lost if I can make a call as such.

The audio track of my video files. There should be absolutely no problem with an audio player playing the audio track of a compatible video file.

comment Format external hard drive to linux compatible file system
If one is using linx for most part of their work, ntfs is a terrible choice to go for. the ntfs-3g driver is still not complete or perfectly stable. And r/w speeds are nowhere close to what other filesystems can provide. FAT on the other hand has the file size limit. exFat though is a good option to choose.

@Nils: Point taken. I'll add this data to the answer. However, I think ext4 is a better option than ext3.

Have your previously added any PPA's and then removed them? That seems to be the most common cause for the above error. Also, run 'sudo apt-get -f install'. It seems many people tend to forget adding the sudo.
