comment How to install TeamViewer?
This is the best answer since it includes info about which version to use--which as a user of a 64 bit system is not intuitive.

agree inkscape is good for pdf manipulation in many cases--but I think it is a very poor solution for someone trying to sign a multi-page contract.

comment Workaround for playing wav files
Default applications won't work for wav files. I used the properties->set as default method.

comment Ripping DVD movie to near lossless video and audio quality
Great answer. Does it partly reveal a problem with the question? It seems like this is exactly what the OP is asking, but if you did this, would it save any disk space? In that case, seems like the OP could just stick with iso.

comment Workaround for playing wav files
what evidence do you have that my problem has something to do with installing ubuntu-restricted-extras? i tried that solution and it didn't work. can you remove that so as not to lead others astray who are facing this known bug? Or am I misunderstanding what you are saying?

comment Workaround for playing wav files
turns out I already had vlc installed for other reasons on my system and though I think of it as not lightweight (not sure why) when I actually set it to play by default for wav files it pops right up. so that solution worked for me. Sounds like Audacious would also work well.
