    [gnome] Re: Gnome 3 did not install Mutter

    I suspect it has to do with your chosen theme, which appears to be different than the one used in the Gnome 3 demos. It's called Adwaita and should be available in the Appearence Preferences.

    [ubuntu] Re: Unity Dash settings

    I have yet to find a way to remove the "Workspace Switcher" button. Its functionality is easily duplicated with some simple, built-in, pre-existing keyboard shortcuts.

    You'll need to choose the option to manually partition, if you want to replace 8.10 but keep Vista. Otherwise, the installer will attempt to put 10.04 alongside whatever else is on the hard drive; it...

    You can install Synaptic in KDE, it will just require additional libraries because the dependencies aren't in place. (Most folks I know who use KDE use Synaptic anyway.)
