comment How to increase the amount of steps of brightness adjustment-key
Do the Fn+F4 keys work when your screen is locked (password prompt), but turned on? I have the same problem on my System76 Pangolin Performance laptop. It seems that GNOME is grabbing the brightness keys and doubling the brightness change. When my screen is locked and showing the password prompt, the Fn+F5 and Fn+F6 brightness keys work normally, minus the on-screen notification.

comment Tweaks and configuration for Radeon Open Source driver
Have you set the power management mode for the ATI Radeon driver? (separate from the CPU governor) There's several online guides, but the basics are this: In a terminal, run sudo su, then echo mid > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_profile [one line] (Other valid modes are auto, which uses high when plugged in and mid on battery, high, which forces full performance, and low, which saves the most energy, but might not work on some hardware)

comment How do I get the latest GIMP version available?
Why does GIMP need removed before being upgraded? I tried adding the PPA and updating without removing it, and it seemed to work fine. (also, apt-get autoremove does not remove configuration files without specifying --purge)

comment Wrong window focus behaviour in Unity, but not GNOME Shell
I tried disabling the Compiz Viewport Switcher, and still have the same problem. What graphics card is in your computer? (I'm curious if it depends upon the graphics card as to what breaks and what works...)

comment Wrong window focus behaviour in Unity, but not GNOME Shell
I've had the Unity switcher enabled all this time, and the window decorations (titlebar, close/minimize/maximize, etc) still freeze up. Are there any other changes you made? What graphics card do you have?

comment Where is force quit?
At least for me on Ubuntu 11.04, escape does not work, but right-clicking will cancel the xkill prompt.

Mind if I update the shell script with your code?

comment How do I synchronize a Palm PDA with Evolution 2.30?
Thank you very much! The steps worked, except that the flag is actually '–enable-pilot-conduits', and 'debian/tmp/usr/share/gnome-pilot' must be added to debian/evolution-common.install and 'debian/tmp/usr/lib/evolution/2.30/conduits/*.so' must be added to debian/evolution.install, as per (sarakinas.wu.cz/doku.php?id=evo-pilot). The 'apt-get build-dep' trick is very handy :)
