comment Expanding environment variables in Nautilus
@Gunnar Thanks for the remark - indeed, this difference was the reason why I moved the definition from .bashrc to profile.d in the first place. Trying it in a shell was just a way of making sure it was still being sourced properly (and in fact, the kate editor manages to expand it as well when started from the graphical interface, so it's certainly worked)

comment Expanding environment variables in Nautilus
@chronitis intriguing idea, hadn't thought of that. The daily scheduling would work (I do use a terminal almost every time I log in, but once per day would be preferable). cron is one of those things that I can't remember ever having used, though. How would I go about doing this?

comment Unable to mount External Memory - Help!
Possibly a silly question on my side, but have you already tried running chkdsk /f from Windows as the error message suggests? It's worth a try just to see if it's purely errors on the disk stopping it, or something else.

comment Hibernate option missing in ubuntu 12.04, after extending the Root partition
Could you upload a screenshot of how the disk looks in gparted? In particular, make sure that your swap partition is still larger than your total RAM.

comment LibreOffice constantly crashing under 13.10
I fixed this in the end by just installing 4.2.0.4 from the deb file on the Libreoffice website. So, pretty much "no repro". Still no idea what went wrong, but it's unlikely to be of much help in future.

Yes, it needs to be run under an administrative account. Right-click it and choose "run as administrator".

This is to be expected - Ubuntu runs with the EXT4 (or EXT3) file system, which Windows does not support at all apart from using some special programs. See also askubuntu.com/questions/9933/… (possible duplicate)
