comment How to configure glidepoint driver for touchpad?
while this doesn't answer the question directly, i am grateful for this answer, as i've struggled with dell's glitchy multitouch driver for 6+ months, and it's unusable, mainly due to speed and insensitivity, and the out-of-the-box driver is jumpy-glitchy. just tried this suggestion and it seems to work great.

comment How to fix slow wireless with Intel 4965 AGN?
I have the same card which performs OK (i.e. it is faster than my broadband speed, (however Invalid misc:64607 shows in iwconfig after only 20 mins uptime, and increasing a lot!). Maybe try with a different wireless access point? For example, the powersaving bug in some cards is related to the firmware running on the access points.

comment How can I highlight PDFs?
How to send highlights to other people: Since KDE 4.2, Okular has the "document archiving" feature. This is an Okular-specific format for carrying the document plus various metadata related to it (currently only annotations).You can save a "document archive" from the open document by choosing "File -> Export As -> Document Archive".

this info is now out of date, since the monospace font has been released. however, it is still unclear if it is packaged for lucid anywhere
