comment How to install Bumblebee-UI (GUI) in Ubuntu 12.04
This won't work out of the box, because it doesn't follow python best practices for installation.

comment How do I change the icon of a Epiphany web app?
Additionally, you'll want to open the respective folder and edit the app-icon.png inside with gimp (or create a new one with inkscape then export it as a png).

While this is actually the right way to do it (tm), SSH users should take note of : askubuntu.com/questions/21586/…

comment Alternative to Little-Snitch app-firewall?
@bodhi.zazen also, program author is working on a rewrite to address seperation of concerns, I suggested on his github repo that dbus be considered to help with the separation. At the moment without the GUI running, new rules can't be created, and there is no feedback about why packets are dropped. I mean, if you create rules to block firefox from going to some website, then in six months will you remember why said website isn't loading?

@bodhi.zazen Compile from source works on 13.04, instructions are in the README & INSTALL file. Does exactly what the OP wanted.

I remember way back that AppArmor had a gui, but they dropped it because it was not being maintained... which is a shame because it made dealing with AppArmor rules nice and easy.
