comment Width and distance when using line patterns in QGIS
Well, the example you are linking is more like 1,2 mm distance and probably 0,25 mm line width. If you use those values the resulting pattern will look much closer to your example.

comment Where can i find Shapefiles of city along with the world file (.jgw) and the jpg image?
I don't think such a repository exists. Cadastral maps aren't usually publicly available, especially not as shape files. The same is true for aerial pictures. Which city are we talking about?

@simskopf: Then you might want to accept Jakob's hint as the correct answer. ;)

comment How to exactly georeference in QGIS
Well, you need to do that if the raster image and the reference data aren't in the same projection. Linear only tries to move the image to the correct location without transforming ("warping") it.

comment How to place labels under a vector layer?
I could imagine that user8839 uses a cadastre map as a base map for what looks like electricity or freshwater lines. In this case you would like labels for some orientation, but they should never sit on top of the actual data. This is easily done in any CAD, but apparently not so in QGIS.

comment QGIS: field calculator is not working with shapefile created manually
I had a problem yesterday that QGIS 2.2 sometimes wouldn't display any changes in the attribute table until you saved the file and resorted any column. It just kept showing the old values until then. Maybe this is the case for you, too?

comment Removing small spaces (slivers) between polygons?
You could always use the QGIS processing toolbox and apply v.clean.snap directly to your shapefile.

comment More than one WMS layer in QGIS
Combining different WMS in one project shouldn't be a problem, I just tested this in QGIS 2.2.0. But they need to share a common projection (you might have to choose the correct one manually from the list)

comment IE8 Openlayers load thousands objects problem
I don't have time for an elaborate answer right now, but you might be interested how I solved a similar problem (visualization of 40k polygons): gis.stackexchange.com/questions/9864/…

comment IE8 Openlayers load thousands objects problem
Do you need vectors? Otherwise you could create a tiled map overlay instead. Or you could switch from JSON to a proper WFS (this would help to reduce the number of loaded features). Loading that many vector objects from JSON will always create performance problems on slower machines or browsers...

comment How can I filling ring in QGIS 2.2?
It might be useful for future analysis and styling purposes to have your park boundaries and buildings on separate layers.

Did you find a way to make QGIS export the existing user profile to the new location specified above?

comment How can I centralize QGIS connections for multiple QGIS installations
Eh, ignore the last part about exporting the WMS server list - totally missed the "save" button... also: --optionspath instead of --settingspath as you just wrote on your blog will create a new folder and a QGIS2.ini file, but again use default values instead of my own ones.
