comment How can I replace Google Chrome's low resolution notification icon?
Mate, I would be happy if you clean up the tutorial a bit... Are all modifications to data.py needed? I am a bit confused. No offence meant, I just want to follow it.

comment What would cause SSD to become not detectable?
I will vote for faulty SSD. I had one - it used to work fime for 1.5 years. One day it froze while my was working, and was not found by BIOS on next reboot. It worked after second reboot, though.... A mouth later it stopped for second time and never worked again. It was replaced. Back UP...

comment Can't start ubuntu 11.10, Stops at login screen!
I am not the biggest pro round here, but I will wild guess this might be a video issue. You might try with older release of Ubuntu or different flavor of Ubuntu (Lubuntu, for example, AFAIK will not need 3D for desktop) Or when you hit the empty screen - cnt+alt+F1 to go to tty1, login, sudo-apt-get update, sudo-apt-get upgrade, sudo-apt-get dist-update.

comment Is there a way to turn Nautilus into dual pane manager
When I mean dual pane manager, I mean sunflower and Krusader. The question and the answers you consider this question is a possible duplicate to, do not talk about this.

comment How can I set up password-less SSH login?
Best thing about your answer is that you give good explanations :) I lost an hour trying to do it the other way - generating the keys o the server machine, not the client. Though probably it is obvious how/where to do it, it is not when you do it for the first time. Thank you !

comment How to improve the speed of a USB-based installation of Ubuntu?
It seems the problem is the USB drive itself - I cloned the installation to other USB drives, and even though the speed reported are similar, the performance of the 'default' USB is significantly slower

comment How to improve the speed of a USB-based installation of Ubuntu?
Since the PC runs on 1GB of RAM, I wonder if there are system folders I can leave on the USB, and some that I can squashfs and load to RAM.Any ideas?

PS. Just checked prices - this seems like a reasonable solution money-wise :)
