comment unable to install a package using pip
You could try (long shot) apt-get build-dep python-fuse before you install.

comment Can I set up 2 monitors to be 2 separate Gnome virtual desktops instead of one big?
@Ivan: I don't think that's possible. They will not be separate workspaces of the same screen (which is what is needed for that). This way you can still share screens between the two monitors, the alternative is having 2 separate display's running which means that they have there own screens and you can't share anything but your mouse cursor between them. You should be able to have separate taskbars though, or atleast... I have a similar setup using KDE and I have 1 taskbar per monitor.

@Ivan: with xinerama you have 1 screen, but they are virtually separated so you can maximize everything per screen and it should feel for most things as a separate screen. You can still drag screens from screen 1 to screen 2. The alternative is 2 completely separate screens but that way you won't be able to move anything from screen 1 to screen 2 anymore.

comment Can I set up 2 monitors to be 2 separate Gnome virtual desktops instead of one big?
@Ivan: you're right, xinerama sometimes get confused when changing monitor sizes dynamically (on my laptop with nvidia drivers I am sometimes required to restart X to make it work properly). If you have all the resolutions you commonly use preconfigured in your xorg config than it usually works fairly well with intel though. Or atleast... the last time I tried (admittedly, 2-3 years ago) it worked nicely.

comment Can I accelerate mouse sensetivity over the standard maximum?
@Ivan: I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 so I assumed it would be the same for Ubuntu. I can't really figure out why it would be any different for Ubuntu though. Can you try xset m 50 1 instead? I'm not sure where the limits are but 1000 3 doesn't do much for me either.
