comment How can I use multitouch apps in Ubuntu 12.04?
I have the same device, and when I tested it mtview was able to recognize up to 5 simultaneous events (IIRC, but more than 2 for sure). Apart from that I cannot help you much, but am interested in the answer to this, too.

revised How do I use pm-suspend-hybrid by default instead of pm-suspend?
Set PM_HIBERNATE_DELAY also when suspend_hybrid is called directly

Fixed PM_HIBERNATE_DELAY assignment, and use better example (5 minutes instead of 24 hours)

comment Logout/Shutdown taking very long, how to find the problem?
Try "tail -F" with ~/.xsession-errors and/or look at ~/.xsession-errors.old after reboot. There might be some indication in there. Also, if you are seeing the splash while it is waiting (the Ubuntu logo and the dots), then remove "quiet" and "splash" from the kernel boot arguments to have more information while it is hanging. This might be related to mounted network shares.

He said to have changed /etc/hostname and rebooted, which should have made the new hostname apply.

comment Hibernate missing from power menu and when I press laptop power button
Note: it is possible to use the advanced installer and setup something like cryptsetup on a partition, LVM on top and then e.g. root, home and swap as logical volumes. This allows for hibernate to work and everything is encrypted.

comment mplayer can't play audio from cron while ncmpcpp is playing simultaneously
It does not help for sound though.. the error from cron for e.g. ogg123 is: ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1018:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave ERROR: Cannot open device alsa.
