Ubuntu 16.04: openvpn dns leak

Direct copy from here:

I had the problem with Ubuntu 16.04 out-of-the-box. After a full week of 12 hour days trying to resolve this issue, I was finally about to fix it. I made a longer post about it here:

Here's the abbreviated version.
Step 1: Goto GitHub and clone the following repo to your home folder:

Step 2: Move the .sh files from your cloned rep to the /etc/openvpn folder:
sudo chmod +x *.sh && sudo mv *.sh /etc/openvpn

Step 3: Run the following command to install new packages for DNS:
sudo apt-get install openresolv nscd unbound

Step 4: Append the following line to your OpenVPN Client Configuration files (*.ovpn or *.conf). I did this after the configuration directives but before my inline certs ( tag):

script-security 2
up "/etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf.sh /etc/openvpn/update-systemd-network.sh"
down "/etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf.sh /etc/openvpn/update-systemd-network.sh"

This should resolve the DNS resolution problem. Dmitry has the right steps, but I needed the 2nd script for my system to update. Works like my 14.04 system... before I upgraded to 16.04...

There is some problem with matlab UI GPU-based rendering on nvidia as this is causing this problem

The workaround is to launch matlab without GPU rendering: opt/MATLAB/R2016a/bin/matlab -softwareopengl

Ubuntu 16:04: wt-3.3.5 compile error

When compiling latest wt-3.3.5, the following compile errors can occure: usr/include/boost/core/ref.hpp:131:74: note: candidate: template const boost::reference_wrapper boost::ref(T&)
template BOOST_FORCEINLINE reference_wrapper BOOST_REF_CONST ref( T & t )

/usr/include/boost/core/ref.hpp:131:74: note: template argument deduction/substitution failed:
/tmp/wt-3.3.5/test/dbo/DboTest.C: In substitution of ‘template const boost::reference_wrapper
boost::ref(T&) [with T = dbo_test26::test_method()::CheckExpected]’:

/tmp/wt-3.3.5/test/dbo/DboTest.C:2381:76: error: template argument for ‘template const

/tmp/wt-3.3.5/test/dbo/DboTest.C:2381:76: error: trying to instantiate ‘template const

This can be fixed, by compiling with C++11 mode: cmake ../ -DWT_CPP_11_MODE:STRING="-std=c++11"

To specify prefix folder (i.e., installation folder): cmake ../ -DWT_CPP_11_MODE:STRING="-std=c++11" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH="/opt/wt"

To build wt libraries as static (i.e. *.a), do: cmake ../ -DWT_CPP_11_MODE:STRING="-std=c++11" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH="/opt/wt" -DSHARED_LIBS=0
