Woops - I got the script working in the new kernel :). At least this question will be a resource for others trying to find this out.

Thanks - I thought I had tried that but obviously something stopped the installation. Works now.

After checking to make sure the option is definitely selected, file a bug.

I dont think you can. If its there, it's there. If it's not, its not.

comment Is there a way to share resources of a machine by running a program on one machine, but display it on another?
Just tried it. Ran Spotify from my desktop, displayed it on my laptop, and controlled the sound that came through my big speakers remotely! All that comes next is the final bit of what I said - to make the computer automatically start a program on a second machine if the resources are running low.

comment Are there plans to remove the mouse cursor in uTouch?
Not as far as I know - It doesn't seem to be that wanted. I currently use unity on my tablet, and, due to the "desktop-ness" of the OS I would rather have a cursor showing.

comment Get Window size in shell
Understandably, yes. But there are workarounds! Using wmctrl, a package from the repo, you can move, resize, minimize and even change workspace!
