comment Error when installing RTL8188CUS wireless driver from sh: “/lib/modules/3.5.0-27-generic/build: No such file or directory”
@thefourtheye Yes, it did. I've installed linux-headers-generic (since this will get the latest and so I won't have to look through the list) from the Software Center. It's now compiled, and I'm posting using the wireless.

@bodhi.zazen So I just install the headers of my current Linux version? I'll try this.

comment Do I have to uninstall NVIDIA drivers before replacing with an AMD GPU?
It's done. I've avoided it completely. I had them replace the motherboard with one that worked. I don't know what had been the problem.

comment After upgrading to 13.04 Unity interface is not showing
I've lost some Unity features though like "aero snap." Scratch that. I typed "unity --replace", the panels disappeared again, rebooted.

Wow! Thanks. This worked for me (13.04). I hope there's a way to do this in terminal. That be more convenient. I've lost some Unity features though like "aero snap." I don't know how to fix that.

If it were the RAM would my old GPU setup not work either? I updated my observations: the GPU is actually working fine.

I updated my observations. I had thought there was no POST or BIOS, but it seems they were just invisible.

No. It's just the one 2 GB. The system boots fine with a different GPU (GT 220) but with the same RAM config so I think it will do fine even with integrated graphics.

comment What are the criteria for a user background to become login background on user selection?
Parent directories above the image file should also be readable by others. When I had had my wallpaper directory readable but my home directory unreadable, it didn't work. So I had to change my home to be readable by others. If there's a workaround so that only my wallpaper directory should by available to others, that would be awesome.
