    [lubuntu] Re: How to disable screensaver

    Thanks, guys. It's especially interesting to know that 12.04 works for someone else. I gather that you don't run 12.04 often. Did you try doing all updates? I'm pretty sure that the problem...

    I just did a clean install of lubuntu 12.10 (amd64). If I try to remove a package (e.g., xpad) with apt-get remove xpad, apt-get wants to remove lubuntu-desktop as well as xpad. It doesn't matter...

    [ubuntu] Who is deleting symbolic link in /dev?

    I create a symbolic link for /dev/sr0 to cdrom because a library that I use is hardwired to /dev/cdrom. After a reboot, the symbolic link is gone. Who is deleting it, and how can I make him stop?
