comment Multimedia keys do not work with Spotify
It seems that a side effective is that the underlying library that is required for this serves ads. I'm currently sitting in Spotify's screen with it telling me that it can't load "onboarding-popup" once I installed this. If I had to take a guess it's a part of the gir1.2-telepathyglib-0.12 library that I had to install to get this working.

comment Multimedia keys do not work with Spotify
It worked for me just fine when I was using 12.10, when I updated to 13.04 Beta, it no longer worked. I wonder what changed to break this, or if it was a beta update that I got from Spotify that broke it.

comment GRUB2: Always fails to boot have to do a manual configfile on each boot
Fun fact, the boot-repair config actually made this worse. I was brought back into a grub repair> screen on my next boot, and had to do set prefix=/grub_old, insmod normal that gave me a colored prompt, then I did insmod linux. From there I did linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sdc1 ro and initrd /initrd.img followed by boot to get back into my system.

comment Can I install in UEFI mode with the alternate installer?
First off thank you for this, I'm having some what of the same problem with 12.10 throwing me to the grub prompt on reboot every time. Pretty sure this is because I'm booting from a UEFI board.

comment Barebone Install of Ubuntu Server
I had no idea what preseeding was, yet alone what it did. But a quick Google Search fixed that. I did do a server install with the minimal things selected, but I might of missed the Minimal Installation" option in the list. I'll give that a go and see if it's any better. +1
