    Perhaps; I ran it twice last night about an hour or two before posting.



    Agreed, the UI looks great.



    I'm mostly in terminals as well, even on OS X. But a steamlined, usable UI is...

    Hmm, I may have put the fix in the wrong script, but here is a fix in a gist on github. Should it be relocated?

    Please take a look; any comments welcome.

    I think the main problem was not running apt-get distupgrade. When running nmcli I was getting errors that the command was not compatible with the backend or something to that effect.

    I am dual-booting right now using rEFIt; is there a better way? Sometimes rEFIt takes forever, which is not desirable.
