comment Wine programs (Steam and Football Manager) don't work after upgrade
If you suspect it is a problem with Unity, you can logout, login to Ubuntu Classic (i.e. Gnome 2), and try it.

comment How do I define a file context options keyboard shortcut?
You're right, I didn't think of that. I'm afraid I can't find anything better than a global key binding, either using xmodmap or xbindkeys (or Gnome's key combinations) with xsendevent.

comment How do I define a file context options keyboard shortcut?
You could use xmodmap to bind another key to the menu button, like in the answer to that question. But if you are using a laptop, you should have one or two right mouse buttons at your trackpad. Isn't it easier to use one of these?

comment The 'File Manager' icon in the Unity launcher opens my Home folder. How can I get it to open my Documents folder instead?
I tried it in a nearly pristine Natty VM and found that the folder ~/.local/share/applications is not there by default. Did you already have that folder (or did you create it)? Or did you copy /usr/share/applications/nautilus-home.desktop to a file with the name ~/.local/share/applications?

comment Ubuntu doesn't show me all available wireless networks
In which part of the world are you? Japan uses channels 1 to 14, Europe 1 to 13, the US only 1 to 11. If the driver thinks you are in the US you cannot use channels 12 to 14.

comment TV program like DSCaler?
I don't know much about Me TV or the Wii, but does Me TV work for analog TV? Or does the Wii have a digital output (DVB or ATSC)?

That's not a problem of a missing +x permission, it's a bug.

comment How do I fix F10, F11 and F12?
Do you get "unknown keycode" in dmesg if you press these keys? If yes, setkeycodes might help.

comment Internal mic not working on my DELL studio 1425
Does pavucontrol work better than gnome-volume-control (which can be started by clicking on the loudspeaker icon in the panel)? Both look a bit different, but I couldn't find a big difference on the first glance.

comment How do I set my printer up or check the printers status under the Unity interface
The system settings (gnome-control-center) can be found as the last item of the log out / shutdown button on the right side of the panel. There you can search for "printer".
