comment installing Windows Vista after installed Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric
Windows does have issues with Drives with more than 4 Primary partitions, but you can still have more using extended partitions.

comment What is the smallest (installed size) ubuntu based distribution?
I was looking for anything Ubuntu based, official or otherwise. I understand that it's probably borderline.

I don't understand how this is off-topic (or nearing there).

comment How to change the Dash Button in Unity Launcher?
Junjie W is right, in this folder if you replace launcher_bfb.png you replace the logo. It, may look like a transparent file but it is actually white with opacity. The background and edges are also in there.

comment how do I limit the number of open torrents in transmission?
In that case the latest version (with the feature you're after) might only be for 11.10. I would try installing it, i'm pretty sure you can, just the appindicator won't show up in 11.04

comment What is the best AntiVirus application available for non-technical users?
Accepted Answer: Provides the simplest GUI for Updating and Scanning. ClamTK is a similar GUI for ClamAV, but is difficult to get to show up-to-date for all three areas, whereas avast! is one button. Dislike BitDefender because it doesn't play at all with the theme. Disappointed AVG doesn't have any interface, loved it on Windows.

@GeorgeEdison Fixed the links (someone fixed the first two and broke the second two) and added bitdefender.

In 11.10? That's what i'm using too. Because Transmission is default software, it's appindicator is whitelisted (i think). It's working for me in Unity.

@brunopereira81 Should have been an answer? Or listed as duplicate?

I presume i should download BitDefender-Antivirus-Scanner-7.6-4.linux-gcc4x.i586.deb.run and run in Terminal?

comment What is the best AntiVirus application available for non-technical users?
Again, so long as it's simple to use once it's done. I had nothing but trouble with updating ClamAV last time, but i can test that before shipping.

I am looking more at shipping to home use pre-installed. I am aware i'd have to talk to practically any software manufacturer about that.

I'd checked BitDefender, but thought it was a pay only programme, due to the Buy License bit on the right of that first page. What's the interface like?

If it lists the dependencies, try installing them. if not, or if that doesn't work try launchpad.net/~transmissionbt/+archive/ppa/+files/… and launchpad.net/~transmissionbt/+archive/ppa/+files/…

Go to Help -> About. Check you are on Version 2.41 If not install launchpad.net/~transmissionbt/+archive/ppa/+files/… which will just put everything to the most recent version run sudo dpkg -i transmission_2.41-0ubuntu0.11.10.0_all.deb to install in terminal or open in the software center.

Check for updates using the Update Manager, there is a chance i got the package names wrong, or didn't list all of them.

comment Why is there a minimize button in the Unity Dashboard?
I've noticed that too. I think it's how the buttons are supposed to look when you click on them, but is acting weird because this one doesn't do anything.

Did you install the PPA and updates? Ubuntu won't recognise the update unless you add the PPA.

comment Html5 videos from Youtube aren't loading in Google Chrome
You can test general HTML 5 Video Support for you browser at video.eustasy.co.uk I'd suggest clicking the top video unless you have a fairly large screen. Note: My HTML5 Video Works Fine (Chrome 14, Ubuntu 11.10).
