comment How do I copy from a Mac OS X partition to my Ubuntu desktop via root access?
I'm in a similar situation. When I browse network in Nautilus I see 3 available shares (looks like SMB, SFTP and AFC). I chose SMB and was able to navigate to the stuff on my MBP I wanted copied, but the actual copy did not work: the error message I got said "Function Not Implemented", which is obscure to understand. I suspect this has something to do with the way Fuse works with this share, but have no knowledge how to check it or work around it. Would appreciate any tips. Thanks!

comment Why do I get a “the location is not a folder” error when trying to open files using Dash or Synapse?
Had the same problem when using Calibre -- fixed using this method. Question is, is this a bug or a feature? :)

comment How to import a radio station list from Rhythmbox to Banshee?
From what I understood, internally Banshee stores radio stations as "tracks". It's a matter of writing a script that would read it from Rhythmbox configuration file and write it correctly into Banshee database. I don't know how to do that and nobody seems to care to do it. It is a much anticipated feature, but I wonder if Banshee developers pay any attention.

comment What media (music and video) players are there?
I have very mixed feelings about Banshee player's quality, design and features. Bottom line -- could (and should, almost must be improved (after all Canonical chose that player to replace Rhythmbox)). Lacks genre browsing (why?), not so nice way to manage radio streams and/or audiobooks (no import/export) no nice refresh method. There are many cool features, but these inabilities just ruin my impression. Half cooked.

comment How can I sort packages by ratings / downloads in Ubuntu Software Centre?
If something so obvious is not implemented, naturally, I wonder if this was omitted on purpose, you know...
