comment How to make folders ' seen' by PLEX
The problem( plex is not running as the logged user on linux) is widely discussed. The obvious answer, how to change it to the desired one, and where is the location of the config file, is described in plain English, here and here only. Thanx!

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.

I think this worked, though I fixed it a while ago. I will accept the answer, even though I am not quite sure if this fixed the issue, this is a valid answer similar problems. I learnt a few thinks for these 2 years

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 !

This will solve my issue with gedit, but not with the other 15 programs. BTW, Kate works as expected out of the box :)

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?

comment How to improve the speed of a USB-based installation of Ubuntu?
hdparm reports speeds close the the speeds of my hard-drive, but performance of the system is far from the performance of the system when an original hard-disk is used. Thank you for your answer :)

comment How to improve the speed of a USB-based installation of Ubuntu?
H'm, I know this workaround. Sadly, I bought two micro usb 16 gb USB with the sole purpose of serving as hard disks. Since live usbs work way faster than this install, I believe there is a way to get things right on such a system. I don't strive insane copy speeds, just a decent Facebook machine for my girlfriend :-)
