comment How to set VLC as default video player?
@Rinzwind - I didn't see it in a fresh install of 13.04 as well when trying to set VLC as the default for MP4's. I had to go into System Settings > Details > Default Applications as suggested by Pyri to change it.

comment How do I set the correct monitor resolution with Nvidia drivers for a monitor that does not send EDID?
Holy shit...I can't believe this worked. I've been trying to get higher resolutions to show all day. The primary fix for me was setting proper hsync and vsync values. After I did that, all the rest of the resolutions unlocked. THANK YOU!

comment Initrd size seems large. Related to nVidia driver?
I'd also like to note that on my ASUS UX32VD, the initrd images for the same kernel are half the size. I don't know much about initrd, but it seems it must be hardware specific.

comment Initrd size seems large. Related to nVidia driver?
I ended up reformatting and repartitioning the drives (except the Windows partition). I put the /boot partition after my existing Windows partition and sized it at 300mb. initrd is still the same size with this new install, so unfortunately the question asked here is not resolved, but my problem is.

I got the error unable to seek on /dev/sda. My HDD is in RAID 0, so that may be related.

I've got my Windows partition right up against the 100mb. I really don't want to have to reformat that, as it's a pain in the ass to get all the drivers up and running and get everything installed again. As far as I know, you can't move partitions with data in them either.

comment 'Cannot access secondary GPU' error with Bumblebee
This fixed it for me. In fact, the config file specifically states that it's needed for Ubuntu 13.04, which I'm using. May not be applicable to the original question, but might help others.

comment Desktop doesn't remember brightness settings after a reboot
If this is the only answer you read, note that the 0 in echo 0 is going to be your default brightness setting. I had set this up and it was driving me crazy for a long time that every time I booted up, it would set it to the lowest brightness setting. I prefer mine to start at max brightness, so I used echo 10 instead. Your hardware might vary in brightness scale.

I upgraded to 12.10 recently and am still experiencing this issue. NOTE: I have not tried the fix yet, just stating that it's not fixed for me in QUantal.

comment How to dualboot Ubuntu on Asus Zenbook UX32VD?
Has anyone gotten this to work on a UX32VD? I had attempted something pretty similar, but I can't seem to boot into Win7. Every time I attempt to from grub, I get an error for invalid EFI filepath.
