comment Ubuntu on Thinkpad Edge 11/13/14/15
Oh, I have a problem. My CD isn't working and Lenovo doesn't read my USB as a bootable CD (used dd to write the iso). Any ideas how can I update the bios without a CD?

comment Ubuntu on Thinkpad Edge 11/13/14/15
It is stated in Lenovo's site that the bios update is just for Windows, which is kind of strange, because it's an iso image: support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS013486

Has anyone tried this? The person answering the question has too little score to take the risk.

comment Dual display setup - only one displayed after logon
Fresh install of 11.10 solved the external monitor problems for me. It seems that it was just a bad upgrade process.

comment What are the disadvantages of adding the repositories from 11.04 to 11.10?
Jayo, thank you for the extended explanation. The question is targeted at the DISADVANTAGES of adding an older repository to a newer one. The java is more of an example for something existing in an older repo and not in a new one. Can you please elaborate on the potential damage?

comment set fn + arrow to represent 'home' and 'end'
Thanks anyhow. This is still a great way to change keyboard behavior :)

comment set fn + arrow to represent 'home' and 'end'
The keycode for fn+right is the same as just pressing right (without fn). This is problematic, because I don't want to override my right/left key.

comment Dialog box prompting to enter the password on startup
The only password I really care about is my google's and I have 2-step authentication enabled, so even if someone steels my password, he can't really use it. Another motivation to disable the keyring password protection.
