comment Is it possible to do a remote wipe of a system?
Thanks. I actually just posted the same thing; hopefully it will let me delete mine since you got to it first!

Thanks. Now, once all of that is installed, how do I monitor for the computer being connected to the internet? I assume I'd need to have some kind of software installed on another machine that would constantly be running and watching for the IP address of the stolen machine, correct?

I should have asked if there was anything a relative newbie could use :o) I'm willing to dig in and try what you suggest; could you elaborate and/or point me to instructions for doing something like this?

comment The simplest workspace switcher?
@Anergy - thanks. I do know how to switch workspaces; I'm just a little fuzzy on why, so I've been asking everyone I can find who uses them for examples of how they use them.

@michealH - I know how to ask a new question. But usually, questions like, "how do you personally use a feature" get closed because it's too vague, or subjective.

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.
