Thanks, but i'll loose my session if I restart the display manager. right? When an applications is not responding, if I wait, things go back to normal. But that doesn't happen all the time.

comment How do I adjust the pointer speed and scrolling speed of a trackpad?
I tried to do it manually via command line by changing the xinput configuration file, but it kept on reverting to the default settings. Now I am using dconf and it works. The strange part is the change made at dconf doesn't reflect back on the xinput config file. Is it strange or dconf works differently?

comment Ubuntu 13.04 is unable to mount a disk drive from ex-windows system
I you still have Windows running, go to Power Option > Choose what the power button do > click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable" > Under shutdown settings, uncheck "Turn on fast startup". Now you shouldn't see this error.
