comment Bind the windows key to Lubuntu start menu
Is there a way to get the super key to 'toggle' the menu? Currently, it would only open it, and I wouldn't be able to close it if I pressed again.

Which version are you using? My bug was using a distro that is now over 2 years old. Perhaps you should open a new question?

comment Change icon size in unity's application switcher (alt-tab)?
Ended up enabling the old application switcher from ccsm (changed shortcuts for the unity one so they don't conflict). It doesn't really allow me to change the size of icons, but it does feel much snappier. Also, it doesn't group windows (HAH!)

comment How can I use my usb hdd as a live installer without formatting it all?
That worked, but somehow unetbootin screwed the partition on which I was running Ubuntu. Not that much of a problem since I was trying to reinstall on that computer, but that experience didn't really make me want to use unetbootin.
