I don't quite understand what you mean by "security packages always have higher version string" - from what I can tell the libxi6 package has version 2:1.6.0-0ubuntu2.1 under security but version 2:1.7.1.901-1ubuntu1~precise1 under precise-updates (packages.ubuntu.com/…)

Thanks, that's better, but ideally I'd like to play with the colour picker and have the image updated immediately.

comment How can I reduce the delay and increase the scroll speed of the unity launcher?
Are you using Unity2D? I also had this problem - and going back to Unity3D got rid of the delay. I remember reading a post here on askubuntu that Unity2D currently ignores the delay setting..

comment How can I resize NTFS partition in GParted?
Are you able to run chkdsk without using Safe Mode? You can also try making a System Repair Disk using another Vista computer (or preferably Windows 7 since it's newer & may have a better chkdsk) and booting from that to run chkdsk.

on 11.10, I had to make the change in desktop --> gnome --> shell --> windows. To restart gnome shell, press Alt-F2, and type rt.

I think you should make a backup and run the chkdsk tool from within Vista
