comment Disable Unity edge effects when running VirtualBox in fullscreen
@mreq: This didn't help, unfortunately. Right before I tried I experienced the most annoying misbehavior yet: I've bound bottom left corner to the workspace switcher in Unity. When I reached for the Start menu (bottom left), the workspace switcher was triggered, but the cursor was still locked in the guest window, so the only thing I could do was to select it and try again...

comment Disable Unity edge effects when running VirtualBox in fullscreen
@Takkat: I really would like to get this working in Unity - I'm all for the eye candy ;) I've found that it sometimes works and sometimes not, so apparently there's some setting that I inadvertently keep turning on and off again. In other words, it is possible - if I can just figure out which setting I'm meddling with, what it should be, and how to stop meddling with it.

comment Disable Unity edge effects when running VirtualBox in fullscreen
There seems to be some setting I'm missing - I can't even press Alt+F4 and get it forwarded to the guest OS. In Windows 8, not being able to use a keyboard shortcut like that one really is a showstopper... Not even Escape is working.

comment Create PDF from Inkscape SVG without destroying fonts and effects
@Glutanimate: I wrote the text in a font in white color, and then created the color shift by creating a white and a blue rectangle, grouping them, and then applying the rectangles and the text as a mask. Except for that, I haven't done anything "effect-y" with this text.

comment Create PDF from Inkscape SVG without destroying fonts and effects
inkscape --version gives me Inkscape 0.48.4, after first printing the warning message (inkscape:19694): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap", a bunch of times. It was installed from the default repositories in Ubuntu 13.04. As for the pdf, I suppose there might be other problems as well (the font seems off, for example), but I would guess they are ultimately related.

comment Make Shotwell list events by year instead of by month
Acutally, a version where it only shows all the events, sorted by name, is also fine. Maybe even better.

comment Creating a startup disk on a partition of a USB drive
This still only lets me choose the drive - I have no options for the partitions on the drive. I'm looking for a method that will make my USB stick a bootable Ubuntu installation stick without touching (and guaranteed not to touch) the data partition on the stick. What you suggest gives me nothing that the default startup disc creator doesn't already have.
