  1. [ubuntu] Re: The Main Menu/Toolbar in Nautilus is Missing

    Works fine, now. Should've known better to logout or restart, first. Thanks for helping!

    Well, I kinda have to scratch the back of my head in embarrassment knowing I'll be lynched here because--out of curiosity--I tried the Macbuntu theme from GNOME-look. It was alright, but the...

    [ubuntu] Maximized Window Chasing

    I've been able to overlook this for a while since it's only a minor annoyance, but something I've encountered in quite a few programs (Rhythmbox, F-Spot, CCSM) is when I maximize a window, the...

  6. [ubuntu] Grub Rescue after Installing Lubuntu to a USB drive

    I tell you, I really am a sucker for linux distros that can fit on a flash drive. Problem is that installing Lubuntu to a USB gives me more headaches than Puppy originally did.
