Currently I live in Prague, CZ, use Ubuntu Linux 10.10 on my Toshiba L10-102 (Centrino "Dothan" 1.6 Mhz) laptop and code (am beginning, actually) Scala 2.8. I like Scala very much (finally, the language I really like) and wouldn't mind to get a jr. Scala developer position. I am also a beginner Linux servers administrator (mostly using Ubuntu 10.04 Server LTS), I enjoy using GNU/Linux to solve new interesting tasks...

comment Can I move the Unity launcher?
Well. Ok. This moves it to the bottom. What about the right side? I'd like it to be on the right the way like the Wharf Bar in AfterStep.

comment How to disable Ubuntu 13.04 Unity fancy visual effects?
Looks like my problems are almost solved, @Gladen, thanks. By the way I have never seen a computer where Compiz would work stable. Even on very cool HP Elite Desktop PCs it produces visual artefacts and general faults.

comment How to add gksudo or what to use instead in Ubuntu 13.04?
I've heard using sudo for GUI programs is fundamentally wrong. Don't actually know why though.

comment How to set mouse wheel tilt click support up?
All of you are right, guys. 1. it does horizontal scrolling by default. 2. xev helps to find out that tilt clicks work as buttins #6 and #7 (for left and right tilt respectively). 3. the article linked answers the question of how to customize the behaviour. So, somebody, submit this information as an answer and get the bounty. Thanks.

Are you sure you've quoted usr.sbin.cupsd correctly and both the commas at the lines ends and the last line "sudo service cups restart" are to be put in the file? I know nothing about apparmor.

comment How do I install drivers for the Atheros AR8161 Ethernet controller on 64-bit 12.10 using an Internet-connected 32-bit 12.04 PC and a USB flash drive?
I have actually bought a USB NIC (which, I think, I am going to return to the shop tomorrow :-)), updated the system (which has given me the 3.5.0-18 kernel) and installed the linux-backports-modules-cw-3.6-3.5.0-18-generic package ((which has given me the actual driver). I approve this answer because I tend to believe it is not very hard to download the required kernel update package and its dependencies by hand.

comment Does Ubuntu 12.10 support ASIX AX88772 Ethernet controller chip out-of-the-box?
I've just bought the NIC and tested it. It works just fine with bare 12.10 installation. The -18 kernel was installed as soon as I've ran update.

It requires 3.5.0-18 kernel, not 3.5.0-18. And there seems to be no linux-backports-modules-cw-3.6-3.5.0-17-generic package available.

"This module will handle a lot of USB vendor/product combinations as of the version in Ubuntu's 3.5.0-18" - the kernel I've got is 3.5.0-17 (not -18). "you need a Live environment" - why? I've got the fully (but the NIC) functional Ubuntu installed on the hard drive.

How the heck "sudo apt-get install" if the network card is not working??

This looks like specifying a language toggling keyboard shortcut but not the languages set.

comment How to prevent Skype from upgrading and keep the old version for reinstallation?
Thank you for the answer. But unfortunately the only Skype-related package I could find in /var/cache/apt/archives is skype_4.0.0.7-0precise1_i386.deb (I didn't install it but it's there). Do you know of a place where I can download the old packages. As for Windows I use to download old Skype distributions from filehippo.com/download_skype/history , is there any place where old Ubuntu packages are saved on the Web?
