I'm a web developer working in Boulder, CO with my wife and two cats. I'm a tech and gadget enthusiast who loves open source software. Ubuntu has been my operating system of choice for the past several years years or so (Feisty was the first version of any distro that I used).

Did you install Ubuntu over all partitions? If not, you might have a Windows recovery partition.

In general, it's good practice to post a little explanation to go along with commands that you suggest. In this case, since you're suggesting install software, it might be good to explain what this software does.

comment Gnome terminal, transperancy?
That's cool that you found an answer! Feel free to post an answer to your own question (maybe expanding on the answer a bit). I'm curious to hear what gnome-shell does differently that made this work.

comment Gnome terminal, transperancy?
You could set the gnome-terminal background to match your desktop background, but alignment would still be an issue.
