comment Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name?
If I have an Internet fqdm for this server, is this the place to put it? ie should I substitude myhost.org in place of localhost?

comment Howto enable spellchecking in Canadian English (incl in LibreOffice) for all users / system-wide
@GunnarHjalmarsson Thank you! (1) Well, maybe I needed to log out or even reboot. Now the Canada option has the ABC by it. Also, a guest account has spell-checking working when they start up, and in Canadian. (2) How can I edit my question so that your response answers it? (@edwin), (3) Shouldn't hunspell-en-ca be installed by default if my stated location is in Canada when I install? Should I post an Ubuntu bug? (For two years, the install bug which makes Montreal not selectable on the world map has gone unfixed, but I can still try...)

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. But that package is installed, yet the options for me do not include Canadian English with spellchecking: viz barringtonleigh.net/tmpenglish.png

comment Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition + Ubuntu 12.04 + Bluetooth Headphones = Choppy Sound
I am not experiencing this (Ubuntu 13.10 on a Lenovo X230 Tablet) so far, but I cannot get the microphone (for which I bought the headset) to work at all. In fact, I get no sound out of Telephony Duplex mode. Have you got that working, and the microphone?

comment other windows of same application get hidden when I close one of them
Wow, I don't think I was clear about my problem. The focus behaves fine. But I have set things to "sloppy" focus, so I do not want window ordering/ visibility to change just because the focus does. This is only a problem in Unity. When I close one console (the others are not children), my focus should go to the browser or another console, as appropriate, but which window is on top should not change.
