comment No Desktop - 13.04
hmmm, try restarting lightdm. press ctrl+alt+f2, log in, and enter sudo service lightdm restart. Not quite sure why, but I remember it solved similar problems for me when I first installed Ubuntu.

comment How do I configure a joystick or gamepad?
doesn't look as though the package as been updated in over 3 years. Also doesn't seem like there is a ppa for it, not like it would matter given how there are no updates. It is definitely not in raring's repository. Nvm, found it ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/getdeb_games?dist=raring

comment Flash on Chromium no longer works
i believe the newest available version of flash for Ubuntu is 11.2.202.285. Adobe wont release any newer versions of flash for linux systems, only security updates. Make sure that you have it installed using synaptic package manager, software center, or whatever your package manager is. Also make sure you have hal, hardware abstraction layer, installed (sudo apt-get install hal). Post as an edit if this works.

comment Is there a work around to get protected Hulu or Amazon Prime instant videos working?
@SajanParikh Telling you this a little late, but there was a question asked about Chromes dependency issues some time ago. I liked your comment here on how to go about it. Could you add it as an answer to that question?

comment Installed google chrome but I cannot launch it. It does not appear on dash?
Also, I should mention that raring uses libudev1 and not libudev0. The two solutions I've seen is installing libudev0 or use symbolic links.

comment What is pxgsettings?
I don't know if To Do is going to respond, but in my particular case I'm running the Unity-desktop and not Gnome 3. I'd like to show you a list of processes to see if we could narrow it down, but this is not my question. If To do responds and says he found the answer, I'll award you the bounty (if it expires I'll add it on again).
