    If any one is interested in getting Emerald Window Manager back since it is no longer in the repos,
    the directions on this page worked flawlessly on a few installs.

    It works as well on 12.10 as 12.04 too.

    http://ubuntuportal.com/2012/06/http://www.upubuntu.com/2012/06/how-to-install-emerald-from-source-on.html

    But, in the command in CCSM Windows Decoration at the bottom of that page instead of putting just emerald, I put /usr/bin/emerald.

    Reboot or logout and it works pretty well.

    Bug: Encrypted External USB Drives Don't Automount

    You can see the thread I started regarding this here.

    The workaround is as follows:

    1. Open Disks (Disk Utility in 12.04) by pressing the Super (Windows) key and typing in "Disks." Click the Disks icon.
    2. Locate the encrypted USB drive if it's already plugged in, or plug it in if it's not and it will appear in the left column under Disk Drives.
    3. Click the encrypted drive in Disk Drives to select it.
    4. In the Volumes section, click the padlock icon and enter the passphrase in the dialog that pops up to unlock the drive.
    5. Click the filesystem that appears in Volumes once the drive is unlocked.
    6. Click the icon to mount the file system.


    The drive should now appear in the Launcher and in Nautilus in the Computer section (not in Devices as in 12.04) and you can use it as usual.

    The Nvidia bug listed here has affected me for Nvidia 6200 gt. I could not get this resolved or installed or activated no matter what I tried. The headers where already installed, but tried reinstalling anyway. Didn't work.
    Currently is running the nouveau driver and it's actually working pretty well. Otherwise Nvidia is a FAIL.


    Other issue for me was broadcomm wireless, actually specifically the NDISWrapper module would not install. Here is the work around I used very successfully.
    1.Download the latest tarball fromhttp://sourceforge.net/projects/ndiswrapper/files/testing/
    2. Extract it somewhere then enter that folder in konsole (terminal)
    3. run the commands as follows one at a time:
    make
    sudo make install
    modprobe ndiswrapper

    The newer version of nvidia won't install on your card,add the xswat ppa and install 173 drivers.

This is extremely annoying when I am watching videos on Firefox/Chromium. Did this happen to anyone? Is there any way to fix it?
    In system settings>power management, set the screen off to never.
    No - I get the same issue as described above. Screen off is set to never (having previously tried 1 hour). Lock screen is turned off (having previously tried 1 hour after screen off). Either way the same thing happens - after about 10 minutes the screen turns off. This doesn't seem to happen while watching vids through XBMC even though I'm just running it as an app on top of Unity.

    This also isn't the first time it's happened in Ubuntu - the screen power management showed the same bug about two or three releases ago and was only patched a few months into the release cycle.

    Edit to add I've not found a workaround for this yet so probably shouldn't be posting in this thread, sorry!!

    I think I may have had the same problem in Kubuntu. What's the output of this?
    Code:
    xset -q
    The whole thing is so patently infantile, so foreign to reality, that to anyone with a friendly attitude to humanity it is painful to think that the great majority of mortals will never be able to rise above this view of life.

    most probably your xscreen saver is giving you a black screen after w while.

    try this:
    xset s off

    to make this permanently you have to add it to your xinitrc.

    this annoyed the hell out of me until i discovered this.

    Re: Quantal (12.10) Know bugs and work arounds - Wobbly windows etc

    Wobbly windows and other effects are not installed in the default install.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install compiz-plugins-extra
    Will solve this. As always be careful with compizconfig-settings-manager which by the way needs to be installed too if you haven't done so already.

    [edit] you'll need to either log out and back in or use the code setsid unity to see the changes take effect.

    Quantal Quetzel does not display the date in the upper right hand corner.

    The workaround for that using dconf-editor is here.
