The new "On Hold" feature of SE that gives people more of a chance to improve poorly worded questions before they are closed is sweet!

comment mp3 playback crackles/pops and sometimes squelches in Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit
Well, the problems didn't really go away completely. I noticed that alt-tab between windows sometimes made the popping go away - particularly with Chrome. It definitely got worse the more Chrome windows I had open. Chrome just upgraded in the past couple of days and my sound seems to be much better - maybe it's all fixed now?

Oh, I also had to go to the sound settings and choose the right sound card once everything else was done.

This got my sound indicator back: sudo apt-get install indicator-sound and kill the panel to get that to take effect killall unity-panel-service thanks to: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1871144

@jwernerny That solved my problem, but it also uninstalled ubuntu-desktop and with it, the little speaker-icon sound indicator in the little tray at the top.

comment How can I make the volume change in smaller increments?
This worked from the command line and from my key mappings yesterday, but after a reboot, no effect at either command line or key mapping.

comment Menu missing in Lotus notes 8 and Eclipse in Unity
On Ubuntu 13.10 with the Scala IDE version of Eclipse from Typesafe. I have no /usr/lib/gtk... folder. Installing gnome-shell didn't help. This was the only thing that worked.

comment How do I convert a PNG to PDF with only the default packages on 11.10?
Works like a charm. PDF looks beautiful. Original images are unharmed.
