    [other] Re: Open local text editor while using SSH

    Wouldn't this launch gedit from remote_host, rather than from the local machine? The result would look the same (gedit window appears on local machine), but it would fail if gedit isn't installed on...

    Perhaps you had installed preload before, and now you no longer have it?

    It kind of looks like you have a half-installed package. I don't know what bcm5974 is (wireless driver?), but you might try "apt-get remove bcm5974-dkms" to see if that makes apt any happier.

    You've tried restarting the machine, right? (Power menu in lower-right corner.) And gdm looks the same after restart?

    Timekpr looks great, so I'm disappointed to learn that you've decided to stop developing it.

    Your kernel version is 2.6.24... I think that means you're running Hardy (8.04), right? It looks like Canonical is still releasing PPC kernel updates for 6.06 (2.6.15) and 8.04 (2.6.24)--but not for...
