comment Multiple monitors, multiple workspaces?
It is possible with compiz, but a bit tricky to set up. What graphics card do you have? That could be useful. Are you using metacity?

comment Problem deleting broken files on external drive
Can you tell us what you did on the command line? Did you try doing a disk check on the external drive? And please add what format your drive is in (e.g. EXT4, EXT3, XFS, NTFS, FAT32, EXFAT, etc).

comment Can you tell whether I have a hardware or software problem with a DVD-ROM drive?
No clue then, seems like a problem with the DVDs to me. Is this a fresh install of 10.10?

ahh well probably you are trying to copy protected DVDs? I highly doubt you would have the same problem on two systems with the same DVDs and it be a software/hardware problem.

comment Use video file as a screensaver?
your answer doesn't actually refer to what he asked - I'm confused as to how he marked it as answered. Karthick's link is the correct answer.

You can confirm your graphics by installing hardinfo and going to the graphics/display section - you could also add a screenshot here.

It should be the correct driver as far as I know, I'm not sure if your card is black listed or something, but chances are that an upgrade to X was incompatible with your driver. P.S. you really should be using 10.10 until 11.04 is stable.
