comment How to remove the “AMD Testing use only” watermark?
It appears to be removed from the just released 13.8 beta drivers. 13.6 still had it displaying (source: support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/…)

comment How do I prepare my music for syncing with a cloud service?
I know my Logitech Squeezebox can handle the re-tagging. Not sure what other cloud services will do with that information as I don't use them.

comment Couldn't find package git
Which mirror are you using? It may be out of date perhaps? Also, did you run apt-get update prior to trying the install?

comment Why does Wireless function key not effect the wireless card but only Bluetooth?
Also it appears you're having problems with your wireless card not being recognized, and not a problem with the wireless card not being turned on with the function keys.

comment I cannot access phpmyadmin
Also, please verify that phpmyadmin is indeed installed on your local machine and not somewhere else. Localhost only works for your local machine.

I believe there was a recent kernel update that fixed it for good. bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1101666

Going to accept this answer for now, as it makes the most sense. Will check back if I run into it again. Thank you!

Interesting. I'm seeing dovecot complaining: lister dovecot: imap(craig): Warning: Inotify instance limit for user 1000 (UID craig) exceeded, disabling. Increase /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_instances. Will add and see if that makes the problem disappear. Thank you!

I'm not running tracker as far as I know. Is there a particular process I should be looking for?

comment How to keep processes running after ending ssh session?
Tmux is really the way to go nowadays. GNU Screen is nice, but Tmux gives you much more functionality, like attaching from multiple locations without having to detach. It's awesome.

comment How do I set up hosting a domain name at home with Apache?
Linode also lets you do something similar with an API call to set the IP address. I've set up my Tomato router to use this call whenever the IP address is changed by my provider. Here some more information: linode.com/api/dns

comment Global menu and HUD suddenly broken
Have you tried creating a new account on the machine to see if it might be specific to that particular user? If it works, it'll at least give you a point of A/B comparison, or you could copy your home directory to USERNAME.old, and then transfer files back (assuming the new account works).

comment installing 12.04 failing
You might want to verify the disc you burned is correct. a few seconds after you boot, you should see an icon with a keyboard. Hit escape, and select "Test Media...". If the media checks out, we'll be better able to help you.

comment Autojump in 12.04 doesn't work
You might want to say how you installed autojump, whether it was via the .deb package. It's not clear if it's installed correctly.

Program note: If you're on 10.04, you may need to install python-software-properties prior to using add-apt-repository.

comment Ubuntu One file sync error: SSL Handshake
This is also occurring with 11.04. It appears there's an issue with Canonical's servers that's preventing anyone from getting online with U1.
