@doug, com.canonical.unity-greeter play-ready-sound false is working, but you have to set it as user ligthdm. See answer from @izx

@Huygens, IMAP has flags, which could be used like labels, but support is crappy.

It’s not IMAP that treats labels as folders, it’s Gmail.

comment Icon for alt-tab/application switcher
No, it doesn’t help, as any switcher suggested there has huge icons for each application. Unity 2d ran with metacity, by the way. And I am on 12.04, but not for long, I guess.

comment Configure screensaver in Ubuntu
While gnome-screensaver didn’t get DPMS running in natty, in precise it finally does (i.e. my LCD backlight is actually off!) – The place to configure the timeout is right; but I don’t know why it has to display my full name (in the corner of a black screen) for a while, before it starts ... “saving”.

I was just about to recommend you vbetool, which unlike setterm does work here on this old EeePC, also an Atom CPU. – Did you find a solution already?
