comment Flash player blocked?
After running updates today as per the update in this comment, Firefox still is blocking my Flash, and my version is still showing up as 11.2.202.481 in firefox. (Clicking on "Update Now" in Firefox just takes me to a screen explaining why the plugin is blocked, no option to update.)

This ldd command does not list libxml anywhere in the output; for acroread I get the output " not a dynamic executable". Suggestions?

comment ImportError: No module named gtk
@jozzas: Yeah, turns out the problem was I have anaconda installed, and then the gtk module is not on the path when fslint-gui launches python with "#!/usr/bin/env python". I did a hacky fix of changing that to specify the system-wide python, but that will break when the fslint package gets a new update, I guess. Would be nice to have a more robust fix.

comment ImportError: No module named gtk
I still get the "ImportError: No module named gtk" when running fslint-gui, even though I do have python-gtk2 and python-gtk2-dev installed. Suggestions? (I also get the error in the Python interpreter.)

comment Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears
This (partially) worked for me, thanks! What's still messing is the menu bar with the controls for sound, networks, etc.

comment Missing date & time applet from top Unity panel
Did not directly work for me in 14.04. Instead, I first had to run dpkg-reconfigure as in @Patryk's answer.

comment Byobu status bar keeps loading after install
Pressing Alt-F5 resets it to one line for me, but after that the scrolling just starts again. (I didn't get the problem on byobu startup, but instead after running a diff that output a bunch of nasty characters...) Any suggestions?

comment lubuntu 11.10 won't let me change desktop to LXDE. Auto login, so no login screen
Any suggestion on what do if I'm on a netbook and LXDE is off the bottom of the screen when I try to select the session type (the top of the list is full of various versions of Gnome and KDE that I don't know how to uninstall.)
