    followed the instructions and it worked no problems and a big thanks for all the suggestions

    But it doesnt make sense to me why they would make this the default layout....its not in KK

    anyway have done a complete remodel and made it look more windows like with only one taskbar and that at the bottom

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04 Post-Install Guide: What to do and try after installing Lucid Lynx!

    Just wanted to say thanks. I really like your page and info you have shared. With friends of mine that are new to Ubuntu I send them your way. . . You make things nice and easy.

    I'm still having problems with flash working right. Not really sure what is wrong. (I can't click on the progress bar on some youtube videos, also can't click on any of the players buttons. I do notice a different player on some of the YouTube video; no problem with interacting with these controls. Is this a new Youtube player?) How do I know what version of Flash do I have installed. Not sure if I updated to 64bit correctly.

    Also wanted to say. I like the move of the windows buttons. . .Finally. . . I may be one of the few, but I like it.

    Any how, thanks again.
    I hope you keep posting these.

    Perhaps you are in the YouTube HTML5 beta which does not use flash?

    Talking Re: Ubuntu 10.04 Post-Install Guide: What to do and try after installing Lucid Lynx!

    Overall I think it's great. This time around I upgraded instead of doing a clean install, so on three computers, all 64bit,and the only annoying thing that happened is that on my main computer firefox decided to not respond at all. I now am using Opera as my default browser with seamonkey as backup.Other than that everything is good . It was the easiest, least hassle upgrade so far. This should be an excellent LTS

    Cool Re: Ubuntu 10.04 Post-Install Guide: What to do and try after installing Lucid Lynx!

    The gravest issue with LUCID LYNX is in the networking / wireless area. I knew that I would not be able to connect with the release kernel, hence I had Ricardo Salvetri's patched kernel on hand.

    Other than that, I can switch back and forth between the netbook interface, and standard. I can connect my 10" netbook to the 32" LCD TV, and I'm staying with Ubuntu!

    I'm not really sure what is with the two different interfaces. I right click the videos and indeed they are both flash. I really prefer the new one. BTW, I do try and give HTML5 on youtube a try from now and then. For anyone that is interested.

    Youtube.com/HTML5


    Any how, I fixed my problem. Every time I went to the Adobe site to download flash64 bit I kept getting an error (adobe-flashplugin is virtual) Not actually sure what that means, but this is what I did. I went to the terminal.

    Got rid of the old flash plugin

    sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-installer nspluginwrapper


    Then added this

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sevenmachines/flash && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install flashplugin64-installer



    ---------------
    For those that are wondering.
    This is the video controls that I like and were the ones originally working when others weren't. Clip from one of my favorite movies.

    Yeah, you have to purge the 32-bit flashplayer before using the 64-bit player. This was specified in the guide
