comment How to customize on screen notifications?
It's important to note that the webupd8 PPA has many other packages in it, so it might be overwriting other packages...

comment Why is the life of Ubuntu 13.04 so short?
OMG! Ubuntu is pretty neat for a bird's eye view. They are pretty on the ball about small changes in Ubuntu. Try also, "Linux Action Show", reddit.com/r/linux, Web Upd8, Phoronix, linux.com/news.

comment Rdio Quicklists
It might be possible using Unity's web app feature, since some apps (Gmail?) might be using quicklists. I'm not sure. I think my solution is to switch (back) to Spotify :)

comment Rdio Quicklists
I want to get a quicklist when I right-click on the Rdio web app icon in the dash. Quicklists appear when you right click the icon of an app that supports them. Try with Rhythmbox or Nautilus!

comment How do I enable Emacs keybindings in Google Chrome?
I managed to turn off key stealing from unity. Basically, in the Keyboard section of System Settings you go to the Shortcuts tab, Window section. Disable "Activate the window menu". In the Launchers section, Key to show the HUD, you should set it to RIGHT ALT (or something else). Problems gone! :)

@JohnJ.Camilleri I think that 3rd party PPAs get disabled on upgrade.

comment How to set PcManFm as the default file manager?
Glad it worked out, maybe I changed the permissions of the file at some point. Forever a mystery!

You could run locate nautilus-autostart.desktop in the terminal, but it really should be there (at least in 12.04 LTS).

It actually didn't work. Go figure!

comment How to get Dash to open folders?
Yes, I suspect that it might be that since I have multiple file managers and desktop environments Unity doesn't know which is the default? It works for files, though.

Doesn't work for me. The icon just keeps pulsing and nautilus won't open...

comment Wireless doesn't connect after suspend on an Asus K52F
The issue is that if I suspend for too long I get these problems. Since none of the above answers work for me, here's what I do. Suspend again. Resume in 10s. Then it works.

comment How do I put a web application on the Launcher?
This is not necessary any more. Chrome opens each app in it's own window (and Chromium, too).

comment Is Xubuntu really faster than Ubuntu?
You should try Lubuntu. It is even faster than Xubuntu. It runs on my two-generation-older (Centrino) laptop as fast as Unity does on my Core2Duo desktop.
