comment can't run or install Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition
Dean. If there is no specific reason why you NEED 10.10 then just stick with 10.04. But dont install NB edition, use the normal desktop..its quicker in my experience(I've installed it on a dozen or so netbooks), then add a dock (docky/cairo amongst others). 10.10 is supported only until this april 2012, 10.04 supported to april 2013.

comment How can I change the name “Rubbish Bin” to “Trash” (or “Recycle”)
you changed the value form integer to string yes? Oh and this would only change the desktop icon and not the panel icon name.

fair enough, I'm pretty sure it is in the repos 10.10 onwards though. I still don't understand why /apps/nautilus/desktop/trash_icon_name isnt working for you. I cant try anything else as I'm not on an Ubuntu machine.

comment I have successfully burned ubuntu (correctly) but my mac wont boot up from the cd
holding down 'C' while booting is the usual way to boot from cd media or- hold down Options-Command-Shift-Delete to make it bypass the normal boot device and make it search for another.
