comment How to install emacs 24.3 on Ubuntu?
We'll probably never know; this asker never logged back on to the site after posting this question back in May. It's also possible that she just thought she needed 24.3 and didn't, and she does say it's her first time using Ubuntu, so she may not have been aware of APT at the time. I was hoping we'd get a response from the asker if the standard, easy way of installing software was presented and didn't meet her needs.

comment What permissions settings will make /var/www accessible without admin?
Wouldn't that be less secure, because a compromised web server process would itself be able to change the files? It seems like the content should be read-only to the web server process.

comment Dialogue Windows Look Wrong After Upgrade
Do you have a MyBook external hard drive? I know that sounds like a crazy question in this context, but there was a bug in gnome-settings-daemon recently where it would crash because MyBook returned some garbage data suggesting that it had a partially functioning keyboard. The result looked exactly like your screenshots.
