comment How to change file size calculation in Nautilus from “decimal prefix” back to the normal “binary prefix”?
Really a shame to hear that ... Taking a look on the Internet, and the up-votes for this and similar questions, it is clear that this issue needs to be addressed by Canonical.

I HAVE mentioned that this is NOT a command-line solution, (like some other answers). So why post this answer? In case of no WORKING command-line solutions proposed by others, having an ALTERNATIVE option is better than NO options.

As I mentioned, my experience with installing and using MS-Office using WINE didn't go well. The program didn't work as it does on Windows (showed incorrect behaviour) and also crashed a lot!

comment 'zeitgeist-fts' always using a lot of memory!
The two operations I did didn't fix the problem and again 'zeitgeist-fts' went above 300 MB memory usage! ... Guess I have to remove the exec permissions of the 'zeitgeist' files!

Thanks for the tip ... Although I think I will be better of just disabling zeitgeist all together.

comment 'zeitgeist-fts' always using a lot of memory!
Thanks for the detailed answer. I opted the "Disable It" option, but I only did remove it from startup and turned-off 'Record Activity'. I didn't remove the exec permissions of the files, I thought it was too much :) ... Let's see how it goes and I'll give feedback again ... Just to make sure: This doesn't break any functionalities of Dash or Unity? Right?!
