comment Why am I unable to install the Nvidia 96 driver?
Sadly, as long as we rely on proprietary hardware, we're always going to run into issues like this, as we are at the mercy of the discretion of the vendors. Since NVIDIA are the only ones who have access to their proprietary drivers' source code, only NVIDIA can provide a solution to this problem. As of today, the latest "96" driver only supports X.org 1.9. nvidia.com/object/linux-display-ia32-96.43.19-driver.html Until/unless NVIDIA decides it's worth their time to release an updated "96" driver, the only thing we can do is sit and wait.

comment Auto-mount CD/DVD drive to single, specific mount point every time?
I tried this, but I got this error: Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: mount point /media/cdrom0 does not exist. After creating /media/cdrom0 (using sudo), then it works, sort of. However, there's a problem. When GNOME auto-mounts the drive, my UID is set as the owner. This way, some random UID is the owner and I'm unable to read any of the files on the CD/DVD now. GNOME isn't currently relying on fstab, so I was hoping for a solution that uses GNOME's current way of handling auto-mounting so I can access the files without needing (gk)sudo.

comment How do I import existing SSH keys into Seahorse?
Doesn't work for me on Ubuntu 10.10. It's as if Seahorse ignores the SSH keys.
