comment How do I make the terminal run python 3.1?
I tried running sudo update-alternatives --config python, but it tells me update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for python. I tried recreating the symlink as you said but it doesn't semm to change anything... What could be wrong?

comment The XScreenSaver daemon doesn't seem to be running on “:0”
PS: also I don't believe "[...] was only relevant to a very specific period of time. It's off-topic as it's unlikely to help future readers" is really true: other people have had the same issue.

Thank you very much! This works perfectly. Just out of interest - do you have any idea how you would do something similar on Windows7?

comment Upgrading Ubuntu from 10.04 to 12.04
As I stated in the original question, I already tried a partial upgrade, and sudo apt-get update didn't work either. I'll have to check the boot disk; and I couldn't manually reinstall the packages - not through synaptic, anyway...
