@didierc would it still be possible that the fault is the cable even though it has previously worked for 10 minutes? (no markings on cable unfortunately)

Unfortunately, the current version of the Ubuntu keyboard menus look nothing like this. Anyway, your answer talks about just finding the correct layout. There is no layout that matches my keyboard, although it's close. I just need to swap § and `.

comment Is there a way to quickly change all the file extensions of all files in a folder?
Also, to watch it happen, add the verbose flag: for file in *.m4b; do mv -v -- "${file}" "${file/%m4b/m4a}"; done

+1 This way works the same as the answer by @Basharat Sial except it will also work when you have lots of files matching *.m4b. Otherwise you will hit the error argument list too long.

comment How do I run a script every time a DVD is inserted
In mine (ubuntu 12.10) there is no option to run a custom command. The "media" tab is also missing from the preferences.

haha, that's exactly what I did. But I agree with Tom, in fixing it I learnt something.
