And by the way, would you mind changing your all-caps to an emphasized? (ctrl+i)

comment Unity launcher in Desktop Edition?
Just for clarity: 11.04 Desktop edition will use a desktop version of unity's current interface. But you're probably correct in that it will have the dock. I looking forward to this, just hope it's as good as dockbarX.=)

apt-getting the entire ubuntu-netbook install is really way above his needs.

comment How to safely try KDE?
gdm will certainly still be there, but it will need to be reconfigured (or reinstalled) in case kdm is removed. I'll edit the answer with your method.

@kees: I thought about that, but wouldn't that remove kdm as well (thus causing issues on login)?

@dag729: When you perform that first command, apt-get will list all packages that will get installed and ask for your confirmation. Copy them somewhere.

comment Nautilus keeps trying to access a folder that doesn't exist
It did. I had no reference to nautilus in my startup applications, and I had set it to NOT remember running apps between sessions. Still, doing what Bobby said solved it. I can't write an answer right now. If anyone writes an answer with Bobby's suggestion I'll accept it. If not, I'll write it tomorrow as soon as I can. Thank you all.

@nathwill: Updated the question to include that info.

@Richard Holloway: According to fstab, the long UID is the UID of the root partition. Is there a command I can use to check UIDs? All my bookmarks are regular folders inside my home folder and the home foldr itself.

comment How to automatically update burg after a kernel update
Indeed. I prefer aliases because they are easily carried over to new installations by copying the .bash_aliases file. But it's entirely a matter of preference.

comment How to automatically update burg after a kernel update
You can bind it to an alias by going to your "~/.bash_aliases" file, and adding the line "alias apgrade='~/apgrade.sh' " (without the double quotes). The change will take effect once you open a new terminal. I've found this to be the perfect method for updating, since all it takes is four key presses in any terminal (ap<TAB><ENTER>) and the rest is automatic.

Wow. Thanks. I'll soon be logging into launchpad just to contribute and follow that bug.

I admit I had not seen those questions. However, they both involve themes. I would like to change the functionality without affecting the appearance.

comment Can I accelerate mouse sensetivity over the standard maximum?
I've been trying to do the opposite: decrease the sensitivity below the minimum. Have you had any luck with your attempts?

comment How can I sync my home folder over network and internet?
Thanks. To avoid conflicts I might sync my laptop's home folder to a subfolder in the server (and not the server's actual home folder).

By the way, you're correct about the browser cache. Any other suggestion of folders I should exclude? My objective is to sync all personal files, profiles, settings, and configuration files.

comment How can I sync my home folder over network and internet?
This sounds good. I'll test it as soon as I get the server installed. One question: does the SSH protocol automatically use the shortest connection to the server? I mean: will it connect through the local network if both the client and the server are in the office network, or will it always attempt internet connections?

comment How can I sync my home folder over network and internet?
Thanks, but I'm already using dropbox accross platforms. What I'm looking for here is something that lets me sync many GBs of files without fees, and taking advantage of local networks.

I think your script is missing a few line breaks.
