comment Obsolete packages vs. orphaned packages
Thanks for the great explanation. Curious though: why doesn't deborphan pick up on everything autoremove does? I understand why it doesn't work the other way around.

comment Unity Lenses Missing (files/folders, applications)
I'm not sure how common this problem is anymore, but I just did a bare bones install of Ubuntu 12.10 and couldn't find anything in the Dash. It seems the unity-place-applications and unity-place-files packages have been replaced by unity-lens-applications and unity-lens-files, respectively - just in case anyone else comes across this.
