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.)

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?
