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.
