comment How to get current gnome keyboard layout from terminal?
The answer on SO is wrong, and it doesn't print the current layout if there are more than one.

comment How do I hide / remove a partition from the Nautilus left panel?
if you have bound-mounts in fstab, like /home/username/some/path /home/username/some/other/path auto auto,uid=username,gid=users,bind 0 0, they still appear in Nautilus.

comment What music is available on Ubuntu One?
Thanks @James. I misunderstood what the service is about. I thought that it is unlimited streaming of the artists available from the music store, for a flat monthly fee. If it is simply streaming of what I put there myself it doesn't worth paying. Thank you for the answer.

comment What music is available on Ubuntu One?
Thank you, James, but it's not strictly true, that it doesn't require any monetary subscription. It requires the card number first, then it bills it for $1.00 to check if it is valid, then I'm not sure there is a true opt-in before the month expires. “The range is pretty good ... if you in the US, UK or most of Europe” is a non-answer. It doesn't help to decide if it worth it.

Thank you, @poolie, I filed this as bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gpointing-device-settings/…. I you wrote this as an answer, I'd be able to accept it.

comment What functionality of an iPad can I use with Ubuntu?
Just curios, how app installation over the air works on iPad/iPhone. If the app is uninstalled, does it require re-purchase to re-install or you can install and re-install it whenever you want?

comment Default mount options on auto-mounted NTFS partitions (how to add `noexec` and `fmask=0111`?)
Agree. Now it is a well-written answer. Thank you.

comment Default mount options on auto-mounted NTFS partitions (how to add `noexec` and `fmask=0111`?)
1) your "general help" on how to build packages is incomplete, inappropriate and badly written, try to be more specific next time; your last edit at least makes the answer on-topic (+1), but you could have stopped after "new option to allow", without loads of copy-paste 2) I did my homeworks long time ago, and in particular, have already posted a similar workaround, the problem which remains is: it still doesn't allow to specify arbitrary mount options.

1) I asked about NTFS, not FAT. 2) I don't see how the proposed patch (15-vfat-UTC.patch) would allow to configure noexec and fmask mount options for NTFS partitions. As is, your answer is offtopic and not useful.

comment Disable touchpad hardware buttons
@jgbelacqua I learned not to press the broken button, but I didn't find if it is possible to disable hardware buttons in software.

These are probably related bugs: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-mount/+bug/78505 bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/udisks/+bug/14335 and many duplicates. The problem seems to be solved in udisks 1.0.1+git20100614-1, but it is not available for Lucid yet.

This answers the wrong question. NTFS partitions work well in Linux, and the executable bit can be disabled on all files with fmask=0111 option. The question is how I can I configure the modern Ubuntu automounting mechanism?

comment Disable touchpad hardware buttons
My question is not how to disable it completely, only how to disable its hardware buttons.

comment Disable touchpad hardware buttons
Thank you, but I'd like not to disable the touchpad completely. Only to make it ignore the hardware buttons, but still respond to taps.

comment How can I get Google Earth working?
Exactly like this. 5.2 doesn't work for me on 10.04 and ATI HD2400/radeon, 5.1 works fine.
