comment Grub. Dual Boot Windows XP and Lubuntu
I'll need to pass this one onto more capable hands. I've never come across a situation where Super Grub can't boot an OS. There's another option available to you that involves using your Windows installation CD to repair the boot loader. This will nuke grub but that's easily reinstalled afterwards. I don't have much experience in this area but I'm sure someone on here could help you through the process.

OK, no problem. Get the Super Grub disk .iso and burn it. The language is, unfortunately, a bit 'out there' (I think the main developer is Spanish) but you should be able to find the option to boot Windows using Super Grub. I wouldn't try to fix the boot loader just yet.

Do you remember where you installed grub? Specifically, was it to the MBR or to the Ubuntu partition? Super Grub is a fantastic piece of software that will boot almost anything and help you fix broken boot loaders .

I think that link makes it pretty clear. Cheers for posting that up.

From here --> Now we need to make a simple edit to the /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades. This file determines the default behavior for the release upgrader. The line you need to change is at the bottom of this file. Change it from: Prompt=lts to Prompt=normal Then: sudo do-release-upgrade -d

@Alvar - sorry, I left off update-manager-core which is apparently required. I'm sure I just did the one-liner in that past and it worked. Perhaps the problem is that you're on an LTS version. Not sure.

I always found man mount to be a little more macho. :)

comment Where Can I Give Feedback on Ubuntu?
No not at all mate. I hope the answer didn't come across the wrong way. It's very useful to have people share their thoughts in both of these places. Sorry once again if I worded this harshly. Not my intention at all. :)

Dropbox normally resides in /home. Can you do: ls -l ~ and post up the results?
