First post updated, thanks for your feedback.
only affects few specific type of input controllers ... I'm sure that's true (I remember something about ICH8 / 9 chipsets from the bug report), but believe me, those of who are affected think it's the end of the world! There are nearly 20 bug reports that were merged with the main one. So, yes, it affects a rather specific set of chips, but they're not that uncommon.
Click Main Menu>System>Administration>Printing
Click New>Network Printer>Windows Printer via SAMBA
Hit the "Browse" button. "SMB Browser" box pops up. Note the names under the headings labeled Share and Comment. (So in my case, the name under Share was MSHOME and the name under Comment was DESKTOP1.)
Cancel out of the "SMB Browser" window. Click in the entry box beside smb:// and enter those names in this form: ShareName/CommentName/
Click "Browse" again. This time the list should be populated in the "SMB Browser" popup box (after a short wait) with the names of your shared printers. Choose the one you want and proceed with the installation.

Registered Ubuntu User: #10828
Bug: automatic updates checking not working after upgrade from Intrepid to Jaunty. `apt-get update` or update-manager 'check' works fine, however, but are manual operations.
Reason: /etc/cron.daily/apt script incorrectly chmod'ed as 644 aka not executable
Fix: # chmod 755 /etc/cron.daily/apt ... reboot; might help to remove /var/spool/anacron/cron.daily
"Empty trash" button still disabled when trash contains files.
Workaround: Empty trash by right-clicking on the trash applet
NetworkManager Internet Connection Sharing fails to route DNS
Workaround: Manually set DNS server addresses on connected computers
The firmware for the keyspan usb serial adapters has been removed again. Here's a quick work around:
This worked like a dream and here's the steps:
1. Download the rpm
2. Install alien
$ sudo apt-get install alien
3. Build a .deb from the .rpm
$ sudo alien -k kernel-firmware-126.96.36.199-1.rt4.1.fc10.ccrma.noarch.rpm
4. Install the .deb
$ sudo dpkg -i kernel-firmware_188.8.131.52-1.rt4.1.fc10.ccrma_all.deb
At this point, I just had to plug in my keyspan 49wlc and I now have 4 new serial ports.
$ ls -l /dev/ttyUSB*
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 0 2009-09-18 15:29 /dev/ttyUSB0
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 1 2009-09-18 13:49 /dev/ttyUSB1
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 2 2009-09-18 13:49 /dev/ttyUSB2
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 3 2009-09-18 13:49 /dev/ttyUSB3
Full procedure at my blog.

There is a bug currently for people with RT2500 wifi cards, not having their rate be set correctly, a work around for this is to put the following in /etc/rc.local
iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M
iwconfig wlan0 rate fixed
make sure to replace wlan0 with your device name
not sure if I can post bugs here but here goes
BUG: When I use the force quit, yes it quits the application I select, but then I can't open, close, or modify applications (modifications I consider are saving files). I also can't use ubuntu to shut off/restart my pc, when I get to the prompt, it will freeze when I select an option, so I have to hard reset.

Bug #318942 - No sound on hp mini 1000
This work around works for hp mini 1116nr. I haven't seen anyone post for this model yet.
More than likely you'll have to unmute every time that you reboot... to fix that:
- Get the volume settings exactly the way you want them.
- Paste the command sudo alsactl store into the terminal.
- Edit the /etc/rc.local file as root (sudo nano -B /etc/rc.local) and then add in the line alsactl restore before exit 0
I suggest using the workaround described here. It ensures that nothing can be corrupted because you never have to run the buggy system.
