    Re: Swap partition/file in new install

    @pslacker:
    the problem is, that you apparently want an LVM/Encrypted install.
    I don't know why.

    [ubuntu] Re: Excessive battery drain on suspend

    Well, at least dconf reset -f / should have cured the setting files problem.

    This is a bad idea. The hidden settings files in $HOME are in a lot of cases hardware dependent, you can't just copy them from one machine to another.
