comment How to play full screen video on second monitor?
I wanted to confirm that this is still an issue as of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and that the fix proposed by Alistair Buxton works in Unity for Totem as well as VLC. I've found this workaround to eliminate all problems caused by the issue but the issue has not been fixed now 2.5 years later.

That explains why I always see the recommendation to install the driver's from AMD's website instead of using Additional Drivers. Thanks for the info, now I just need to know the difference between fglrx and fglrx-updates. Thanks again.

comment What are the differene between fglrx and fglrx-updates?
I just built this computer last month with a Radeon R7 260X. In Ubuntu 13.10 there were no open source drivers that supported this card and neither did the latest stable proprietary drivers. I had to install the latest proprietary beta drivers to get graphics working in Ubuntu 13.10. With this Ubuntu 14.04 install, the open source drivers support my card fine but I gave fglrx-updates a shot and it seems to be working fine. I'd like to know what the difference is still and also if these drivers are different from the ones on AMD's website.

comment Change or Assign a Drive Letter to an external hard drive (or any drive)
No I had tried relabelling the disk. Without a drive letter Windows cannot load disks. There was a CLI tool in windows for adding a drive letter that I Wanted to check to see if it could be done without affecting data on the disk but I forgot and just backed everything up and formatted the disk. Thanks for the comment.

comment Change or Assign a Drive Letter to an external hard drive (or any drive)
I get that it would have no purpose in Linux, but is there still no piece of software that can make alterations necessary for Windows systems? Theoretically, I could run a Windows partition software through WINE and do it like that,,, but that's just way more work than waiting to do it on a Windows machine. Thanks for the response.
