Note that you won't be getting kernel updates afterwards!

comment Shut down acts as restart?
I experience this on my Lenovo T430s too, however only sometimes. I could not find any pattern when it happens.

comment partitioning ssd +hdd
Normally you do not need to install new ubuntu version from scratch but can upgrade from the existing one. Even if you prefer clean install, you may keep your data in home directory if you select an existing partition during the installation and make sure the "format" flag is off for it. Ubuntu simply removes all old system files but keeps /home untouched.

Samsung 830 series support trim but make sure you turn it on in the "/etc/fstab"!

comment Could it be possible to make a hot copy of a system?
rsnapshot provides you with as many incremental multiple backups as you need (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly) and backups are available in plain full directory structure despite they are incremental.

Just brainstorming: What about multi-monitor setups with different sizes?

comment Unity available from live-cd but not after upgrade from 10.10. How to fix?
Unfortunately, I am no longer able to test your suggestion as I've done a complete re-installation due to HDD change. Now everything works perfectly fine. Thanks anyway!

comment How do I get wireless working on a Dell Inspiron 510m?
Strange, Fn+F2 works for me. You may try turning on wireless before ubuntu boots - immediately after switching on the computer. Another suggestion - try Ubuntu 10.10. I think I had some problems (but not wifi) with 10.04.

comment Dual monitors: one monitor starts blinking and after a while turns black
Well, it MIGHT be that the new adapter will solve the problem, however it is not guaranteed. My current adapter which works so far is this one: amazon.de/gp/product/B001F0QUWG If you (or someone you know) have other computer with DisplayPort, I recommend connecting your DisplayPort->DVI adapter there and see if the problems occur.

comment Why am I experiencing super slow Internet browsing & downloads?
Instead of completely removing your original question you should add a comment at the bottom. Your original question should be preserved so other people with similar problem might find the solution easier.

comment Is there a PC-to-phone application?
When skype is installed, you need to buy skype-out credit which allows you to call normal and mobile phones. This works great.

comment How to move Ubuntu to an SSD
Well it might negatively impact your SSD speed (however with TRIM support it would recover later). You may read en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRIM for more information. But, you should really go the route described in the other reply (copy files, not partitions). If you still decide to copy the whole partition, you need to perform grub-install/grup-update as well.

Well, this is Intel graphics card, there is nothing to activate under "Additional Drivers".

I declared victory too early - hplip is broken after downgrade and printing doesn't work at all. Printer reports some problem with filter.
