sudo aptitude install ubuntu-restricted-extras
should be your first port of call...
and then wine..
have you got vlc installed?
funnily enough, an update for ubuntu-one just came out and fixed the trash issue.
as for the rest, can live with it for now :D
heh, didn't know that about the ubuntu-one client and nautilus...
so when gdm is updated will it reinstall the applet?

and this is a 3g card for mobile broadband, yes?
what version of ubuntu are you using?
heh you won't find alsamixer in there, but you will find a gui to changes the sound
sudo dpkg --configure -a
