For vector analysis, reprojecting the source data is safer than on-the-fly-reprojection.

Are you georeferencing by clicking on the map canvas, or by entering coordinates manually?

comment What's the best linux distro for QGIS?
@ed.hankins the ubuntugis ppa's don't contain the latest QGIS versions anymore. You have to add qgis.org as repository. See qgis.org/en/site/forusers/alldownloads.html#debian-ubuntu for instructions.

If you don't like Ubuntu' s policy you can take Linux Mint. I had no problem installing the latest QGIS version on it.

comment How to define proj4 string for grass
A few mistakes in your proj.4 string: lon_0 should be -40, and k is not the resolution in km, but a scaling factor around 1. You should ask the data maintainer about the units of the false easting and Northing. Proj.4 expects meters.

comment Trojan in QGIS 2.12.3?
Can you try another virus software? Some offer online file checking. It might well be a false alarm.

comment Reprojection issue from WGS84 to UTM32
If you have used Set Layer CRS, you better switch it back before reprojecting with Save As .... Else you will still get wrong results.

comment What is the SRID of LCC projection?
The automatic reprojection (OTF) in QGIS is only for rendering, any intersection done inside QGIS needs layers of the same CRS as well.

comment Gdal_translate command for SDS having spaces in its name
Windows and Linux might behave different on this. Try double quotes instead of single, and double double "" where you have double now.
