I keep up to date with the virtualbox ppa, so whatever is in there. (Changes pretty frequently and haven't noticed a difference.)

comment Dual boot Surface Pro with Ubuntu?
Weird, I installed 13.10 and wifi did not work. In fact, neither the touch nor type keyboards worked so I couldn't get into the prompts to complete installation.

comment Set default language to English (US) in 12.04
I see this is still an active question, so just to add a note: this was the result of ubuntu having Detroit listed as in Canada in 12.04, which was reported as a bug and subsequently corrected.

Same problem. I think it's chrome?

comment Dual boot Surface Pro with Ubuntu?
How is it possible to do step 4, which installs boot repair from the repos before doing step 5, which sets up wifi? I'd like to follow this guide on my surface, but suspect I'm missing something here.

comment Functional Onscreen keyboard?
So, if I were to try out 14.04 or something, I should expect a better keyboard than 12.04 had?

comment Dual boot 8.1 with Ubuntu 14.04
I would also like to dual boot with 14.04. I have a surface and want its tablet focus, bugs and all. It updates daily, right?

comment Borders and Title Menus disappeared on ubuntu “pop-up” Modal windows
Yeah, I wondered that too, when I did it. But it turned out closing the terminal forced unity to restart a second time, and was still fine.

Thanks, but didn't have to reinstall unity, only restart it.

That's kind of a high permission level for a little ol' audio program, right? Is there any better way?

I just want it to make sounds quickly. What's easier? I guess I have both installed.

Right-clicking my ubuntu desktop does not present a create launcher menu, only create new folder, create new document.

comment Will making a USB ubuntu boot disk wipe my USB stick?
Do you know how to investigate what is the source of the error then? The img checksum looks good, so it's not that, and I know the disk accepts other input, so I don't think it's that either. "Installation failed" doesn't tell me much, so I was assuming the biggest source of error left is that there's pre-existing data on it. If you could help me debug other possibilities, I'd be happy to investigate that and post here.
