comment The simplest workspace switcher?
I don't have an answer, but a question: how do you (in particular) use workspaces? I'm new to Linux and can't quite get my head around the idea of separate workspaces.

I installed all the application-specific packages via synaptec; if you want to post your comment as an answer I'll mark it accepted since you posted before rafalcieslak.

comment AWN displaying window icons even when Display Launchers Only selected
I was, but when I upgraded to Maverick it caused all kinds of problems so I removed it and installed the version from the software center. That said, when I look in the software center, under Provided by Ubuntu I have Avant Window Navigator, but there's still a PPA for Awn Testing Team listed, and the dockmanager-daemon package from that PPA is still installed. No idea what that means or if it has anything to do with the behavior I'm seeing.

Thank you! Could you clarify what the difference is between sudo and gksudo? It seems to work either way.

comment How can I make the date/time applet display on a single line?
Thanks. I distinctly recall the update manager telling me that 10.10 Maverick was available, so I couldn't figure out why the About screen was telling me I'd updated to Natty. Is it going to hurt anything if I leave it as is?

If Natty hasn't been released yet, why was it available when my settings are to download normal releases? And the top bar isn't any bigger than it was before the update.

comment What does this icon mean in the UbuntuOne sign up screen?
I've never set up an account before, so I'm not sure how I would get an account set up with that address. However, I just tried with a different account and it went through, so apparently there's an account somewhere with my other address.

comment Is there an FTP client (GUI) that will let me search for text inside files?
Although not related to the original question, I just tried SSH for one of the clients I do have that access for, and it's fantastic! Being relatively new to Linux I tend to shy away from command-line stuff, but this was fast, easy, and saved a ton of time. I'm definitely adding an entry into evernote to remind me of how to do it.

Thanks, but I wasn't given ssh access, only ftp.

Thanks, that wasn't what I was initially thinking of, but it works. (FYI, I'm not the one who voted your answer down.)

I already use Filezilla, but while it allows you to search for file names, I haven't found any function in it for searching for text within files.
