comment Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears
KDE is more powerful than xubuntu; so in a certain way: if you accept the overhead of unity and the ubuntu-desktop; then KDE might be the better choice. On the other hand - if your focus is to have a system that reacts immediately you might want to install xubuntu in the first place. With xubuntu, the thunar file manager pops up in a second; nautilus under unity or gnome3; or dolphin with KDE will need at least 3 to 5 seconds.

comment Why does Chrome not stay as the default browser in Xubuntu 13.04?
Just tried this on a frest xubuntu 14.04 - doesn't work for me. In addition: update-alternatives points to chrome for both x-www-browser and gnome-www-browser

@jnv: Well, I am running Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit; recently upgraded to latest kernel and nvidia drivers; that including installation of latest libpvdpau ... and Opera is showing me blue movies now.

I think the answer should be updated ... listing a PPA as first option is always dangerous; as private PPAs are exactly that: privately maintained. In this case, the PPA doesn't support any release after 12.04. In addition: how does one know if the PPA is picking up security related changes to the underlying library?

comment Plantronics Voyager Legend BT dongle recognized - but no sound?
As you can see from other answer - this wasn't the solution; but I think it is a pretty description of other things that could go wrong, so thank you very much.
