    I had a totally botched beta upgrade. Reinstalled from release CD and all is well. No idea how I got into this state but it's over now.
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Add applications from /usr/local/bin so they're found by gnome shell

    I'm not sure what you're talking about. If you'd like, I can detail the process of creating a .desktop for an application.
