    Nope, just from the 14.04 Ubuntu. And just sometimes after an hour or so. I don't think it's Xp related.

    [ubuntu] Re: 14.04: How to get the PPA back?

    Yes, something like that. Something that shows and organizes the apps (or programs, for us older people).

    I just don't know what's there.
