comment Where can I find Vagrant packages?
"Thanks for wanting to use Vagrant! Unfortunately, this is not the way to install Vagrant anymore. We now make installers for the various operating systems Vagrant supports. Vagrant is no longer distributed as a RubyGem.[...] Note that the RubyGem version hasn't been updated in over a year and will no longer receive any updates.

comment How do I enable SHMConfig?
SHMConfig is no longer needed to configure the driver, but it is needed if you want to see real-time debugging info, eg using synclient-m 100. Adam's answer of setting it in an xorg config file worked for me.

comment Quantal upgrade broke my gnome-shell!
interesting. I do have a file there, but it's set up a little differently - Exec=gnome-session --session=gnome and TryExec=gnome-shell. that all looks fairly sensible tho?

comment Quantal upgrade broke my gnome-shell!
thanks, good suggestion. not fixed, but gdm is sligthly healthier - i can use it to log into a unity session, but not to log into a gnome-shell session. same problem, no windows-key, no activities.

I've added some info on ctags, which I think you'll find useful - maybe more useful than installing loads of plugins at this stage...

comment How can I customize Vim for web development and programming?
Hi Gabriel, Yes, to remove a plugin, just delete its files. If you have any stuff in your .vimrc that uses the plugin, you'll need to remove that too. I don't know anything about pathogen, but don't worry too much about how your .vim folder is organised - as you install each new plugin, it will tell you which folders you need to use... finally, I don't use anything special for html coding, the default vim setup is already pretty good at html - syntax highlighting and indentation are already smart enough... If I were you I'd just start coding!

comment How can I customize Vim for web development and programming?
ah, I guess it's possible that vim wouldn't create a .vimrc by default, and you'd need to make it yourself... I'll update the answer, and also include something on how to install a basic plugin...

comment Cannot resume from hibernate (s2disk)
nope, just upgraded to 12.04 beta yesterday, and if anything hibernate is even worse - it doesn't even get as far as shutting down now, just sticks at freezing processes
