comment How can I edit a picture into an existing PDF file?
Perhaps if I didn't have to create an account to file a bug report for a tool I had never used before trying the above...

I tried this on a (relatively simple) PDF form I was filling out, and Scribus just couldn't handle the document formatting.

comment How can I restart the menu bar in Unity?
No idea; however, this hasn't happened to me in a while now, so if your system hasn't got all the updates installed, you might want to run an update.

Restarting unity will close all my open applications, right? I specifically just want to restart the menu bar. Or is this not possible?

I still have this problem in Precise. How can I check which, if any PPA's might be causing the problem now?

comment Rhythmbox and German umlauts
Basically, all you can do now, is give the bug report an occasional bump, and perhaps offer to help with diagnosing the issue further. Until there are more people affected by this, it's not likely to get a lot of attention from the devs, since it's not a critical issue.

comment Netbook performs hard shutdown without warning on low battery power
The critical battery action was also performed yesterday. Weird that it didn't do it the previous time... (Also, I tried this earlier based on another answer, and it didn't work then...)

yes, I changed the time to percentage. Extra information: after I started the machine up again, and worked on it off battery now, I got the critical battery notification this time. Still waiting to see what happens when the battery gets even lower...
