comment Desktop doesn't remember brightness settings after a reboot
As far as I remember, the setting is supposed to be restored/saved between sessions. It has been a while since I last toyed with those settings and I don't have access to a machine running the latest Ubuntu at the moment, maybe this is a new bug?

comment Flash video doesn't work after upgrade to 11.10
I think it's particularly pathetic that an upgrade of Ubuntu (nowaways) still manages to break flash support.

comment How do I disable middle mouse button click paste?
Doesn't this just disable the middle button altogether? What about closing tabs, opening links to new tabs, etc.?

Yes, this was referred to as a desktop before Unity. Edited for clarity.

comment What native games are available?
Haven't heard of a single player version. For that there would need to be a hero AI, which doesn't exist at the moment. You can play by yourself to practice, but there won't be any heroes other than yourself.

comment Installing nvidia drivers causes computer to boot to command prompt
I have also installed bumblebee successfully on my laptop not more than 2 days ago. First time I ever got my nvidia card rendering anything under Linux, much thanks to the bumblebee guys for that. Gotta watch out and make sure you are running a stable version though, as at first I got unlucky and installed a bugged version that kind of destroyed my setup.
