bin playin around with linux for a few years now, bin using ubuntu for about a year and a half, ditched windows permanently about a year ago. never looked back ;)

My aim is to try and answer at least 2 questions for ever question that I ask, if everyone does this as a minimum it means that the whole community is getting involved and contributing to the Ubuntu philosophy, and most importantly, other Ubuntu users get the support they need to continue using linux as a free (and better!) alternative to Microsoft Windows.

Yeah I suppose so, I think I've started thinking of ask ubuntu as a general Q&A site when its not really. I'll try to keep this in mind in future.

Also it would be nice to know why this question got "down" voted so I can make sure that I ask better questions in future. :)

comment How can I extend the desktop onto an external monitor/projector?
yeah laptops can dual screen just as much as towers, it all depends on the graphics card, if you see a DVI or VGA connection on the side, you can extend your desktop, if not, you can't. :)

comment Strange window manager behaviour
since it was just the theme that was wrong after i re-installed natty, i did a search on this problem by itself and found that "killall nautilus" worked, so i added this command to startup. no idea why it works, would be interesting to find out, however at least its sorted for the time being. thanks for your help. :)

Just tried it, unity reset without problems however no change in the icons, my desktop still looks like the right hand image in the question.

Sorry I was wrong, I deleted my previous comment, there are NO PROBLEMS with a newly created user account, only my main account. My test account has the theme applied perfectly.
