comment where is the xorg.conf file in kubuntu 11.10?
There might not be such a file, you need to create it from scratch. Try sudo updatedb and then locate xorg.conf.

comment How do I make the clock stop chiming every hour on the hour?
I think gnome shell does not use gconf any more. Maybe you find something in the ~/.local dir.

comment How to replace OpenJDK 6 with OpenJDK 7?
Somebody would have to build that into a Debian package and put it into a PPA on Launchpad. If nobody did that yet, you can either make a .deb or install the tar.

no idea how to do that … maybe you can tell compiz or metacity where to put windows.

comment Will Unity 2D continue using metacity or will it use compiz?
That does not make too much sense since the -2D variant is for non-3D computers. Compiz is usually used as a compositor, not as a WM. I do not see the point in using Compiz as a non-compositing WM.

comment How can I record Skype conversations?
If you want it in the BG, you could reroute the audio devices. So that a "sniffer" records from audio in and provides this as a virtual device. On the Mac, there is Soundflower, I do not know anything for Linux though.
