    2. No "advanced install" so I spend...

    Re: XFCE vs Gnome vs KDE

    I've been using Xubuntu for a year before installing Ubuntu on the other PC and I must say the opinion that XFCE is faster but poorer than Gnome is unjustified. With the Xubunutu configuration I'd...

    I'll try that. First I thought it was something in x11-common but it appears to be intact, so tmp/.ICE-unix should be created at startup... BTW just to be on the safe side I tried chmod 177...

    [ubuntu] Clipboard manager

    XFCE has a very nice panel applet (or widget or whatever you call it) called clipboard manager (it displays history of the stuff copied into clipboard). Is there anything similar for Gnome?
