comment How do compile Linux Driver for Netis WF2190 Wifi dongle for FriendlyARM mini210s?
Sorry, I missed that. Can't look in the .rar right now either (why would they distribute a linux driver that way?? Not very promising...). This page implies a realtek 8812au driver might work, you could have a look at that. Unfortunately I don't do out-of-tree drivers much so I'm not much help with this.

comment Script for “battery level reminder”
You can get this info by parsing output from acpi (a command that may need to be installed), e.g. Battery 0: Discharging, 71%, 02:36:19 remaining (hey look, 71%! Perfect ;). How you do the alert is up to you, but if you come up with a solution, you can answer your own question.

comment Script for “battery level reminder”
@1_CR Having seen a prolonged brawl on this topic before, I'm pretty confident that it is true, the extreme end of charge/discharge shortens the (lithium ion) battery life, and apparently 70% is the ideal level (i.e., if you are going to store it for a while, leave it at that). batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/…

If you are following some instructions or tutorial from somewhere, you should post a link to that. Your methodology here appears kind of unorthodox to me.

comment Reverting Back to Windows 8
I didn't call it off topic because it is about Mint. It's not about Mint. How you restore a Windows install on your computer depends on where you are supposed to be restoring it from, etc. If there's a backup partition on your laptop, I guess you would use that. If you mean, Windows is still installed and you just want to remove the bootloader installed with Mint, you would still do that from Windows -- either way it is a Windows question. Would you ask on a Windows forum how to restore the Mint bootloader? The best place for this is probably Superuser.

comment Fedora 21 won't boot anymore; Computer wants me to perform MOK management
Boot into your BIOS (sorry, UEFI) configuration and see if you have "secure boot" enabled. If so, try disabling it. That screen probably isn't the OS, and it may not even be the bootloader. Is this an Acer, by any chance?

"I changed gnome theme" -> It wasn't one of the BSOD themes, was it? ;) P.S. "MOK" = Machine Owner Key.

comment Custom Kernel to Disable SATA and USB Devices
If someone is determined enough to use a jumper to reset the BIOS, disabling the drives in an installed OS won't stop them from connecting a bootable device and using that instead of the network.

@Vass Yeah, you can configure the DM to start whatever you like; it should be per user (so, e.g., one user can use KDE by default and another openbox, etc.).

comment Structure of graphical modules in Linux Lubuntu
@Vass If they were required for Xfce, the package manager shouldn't have let you remove them. If you tried to circumvent the package manager...whoops, it's there for a reason. Either way, you could try forcing a re-install of Xfce and see if that fixes whatever it is that's wrong.

Just a guess: have a look here and search down to the discussion beginning "Another change that you may notice..." WRT the third block, that starts with ScriptAlias. If this turns out to be the problem, please write it up as an answer here!
