Thanks so much for those clear and concise directions. I took a flyer and installed Pixel on Karmic 64bit and everything worked as advertised. Now I just have to learn the program.

One question, is there a way to access smb shares in Pixel. Karmic sees my network drives with no problem, but I can't see them in the file manager in Pixel. Not a deal breaker but would be nice.

And I do realize this is the Ubuntu Forum and not Pixel. I guess the question was more rhetorical than anything else.

Thanks again,
