comment System very slow except while running Smartmontools selftest
I had two identical L430 that have the same issue. I guess it's a problem with the hard drive itself. But I can confirm that running smartctl does help - top then shows no (< 1) iowait anymore!

comment How to synchronize Tomboy notes
You can install grauphel directly via the apps menu in owncloud. No need to manually download it. There is a screencast on tomdroid setup on my blog; cweiske.de/tagebuch/grauphel.htm

comment 13.10 with Mate and Clearlooks: some gtk apps are mostly black
You nailed it. I chose the "TraditionalOk" theme that looks similar to Clearlooks and supports gtk3.

comment Dnsmasq has changed the way it works in 12.10 - can someone point me to documentation or info on the changes
It only says that 127.0.1.1 is used now, not that dnsmasq.conf is empty.

comment Differences between Bonjour/Avahi/People-Nearby protocols
Microsoft's "People near me" is their own soup again; it uses SOAP-over-UDP as basis. Totally incompatible.

comment How do I get tsclient back in 12.04?
Note that this breaks automatic updates, since you have an unmet dependency. Using [equivs][1] does not help since you'll get the message that gnome-panel breaks libpanel-applet2-0 [1]: eric.lubow.org/2010/system-administration/…

comment Macbook Air 4,2: “Boot error” with 12.04 live USB
Yes. After booting the live usb, I could chroot to my old installation and grub-install --force /dev/sda4 - that made it work.

comment How do I set the default icon for mplayer?
doug, it is not worthless: it makes gnome shell display the mplayer icon in the app switcher. btw, mplayer is not a pure cli app since it displays a window - the movie.

comment What is the purpose of having three(or more?) directories with icons?
It's not as obvious as you think, and that still does not explain the difference between /bin and /usr/bin. It's always obvious when you know it.
