comment What are all these “Untitled Window” icons in launcher and how do I get rid of them?
@desgua the problem does not persist between login sessions. I'm not actually even sure how to recreate the issue either, so for now, it's "fixed"; I used grep -ir icon $HOME/.local/share/applications/ /usr/share/applications/ /usr/local/share/applications/ | sed 's/.*Icon=\(.*\)/\1/p;s/.*\.desktop.*//p' | sort | uniq to get all icon names/paths. Looped through to weed out the absolute paths that actually do exist and got this list: gist.github.com/johnpbloch/5387686 How do I check if all of those have icons exist?

@jackweirdy haha, thanks! The wallpaper is actually one of the default ones that shipped with quantal. The conky skin is Conky Lua (gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Conky+lua?content=139024)

comment Will Microsoft Touch Mouse work?
That's what I've heard too. I figured it'd work as a basic mouse and eventually someone would hack together full support...

comment Will Microsoft Touch Mouse work?
I've tried both of those with this mouse and they are more proofs of concept than drivers. They only visualize the input data from the mouse, but don't translate it into anything the OS can work with.

comment Will Microsoft Touch Mouse work?
I have this mouse too, and can confirm all of this is true. I also noticed that it sometimes takes it a few seconds to register a scroll event at all.

comment How do I revoke the default snakeoil certificate?
Fantastic explanation of what's going on here. Thanks a million! Turns out there was another SSL host active, just not apparent (appended to the vhost config file). Stupid stupid oversight on my part...

Good to know about flashplugin-installer. Still the same, though.
