Thx @Jakob - without that link the answer isn't worth half as much.

comment Can not paste into Gnome Terminal from Netbeans
@wbharding you might want to consider putting "switch to Sun Java" in your answer. I for one didn't bother reading the link but got the solution from Dziamid's comment. Might get you more upvotes.

comment Increasing scroll speed
Thanks! I found that option myself but didn't try that high a number, just something like 10. But together with smooth scrolling it seems that much higher numbers are in order to reach barely sufficient scroll speeds. Currently got mine set to 100.

comment YouTube movies are playing too fast with chrome
Same as ubershmekel here. Selecting a specific flash plugin made it either very slow or even faster. Leaving the plugins as they were and just killing and starting pulseaudio did the trick. Note: sudo service pulseaudio restart did NOT help.

comment Is it possible to add custom items to System Settings window?
Actually, having X-GNOME-Settings-Panel;X-GNOME-SystemSettings; in Categories and adding X-GNOME-Settings-Panel=sample is sufficient.

comment Is there a ext3 defragmenter?
Desktop PCs do not need defragmentation, not even on Windows. It's the snake oil of the digital age. And this is not a lecture. :)

comment Ubuntu boots to terminal on start up
@EmersonHsieh IMO nanp -> nano would be a typo, but not recommending a completely different program. Be that as it may your answer does not really have any relation to the question asked anyway, sorry.

comment Ubuntu boots to terminal on start up
@Jules yes it should have been etc, fixed that in my answer. Congrats on having the desktop back. The message from reinstalling the drivers you quoted above seems to indicate that there are some other packages missing. You should now try installing the drivers via the additional drivers applet in Ubuntu system settings, as I indicated above. Should work.
