Are you sure? It's supposed to be the key above Tab. According to Wikipedia, that is not Ö.

comment Ubuntu GNOME vs Ubuntu “normal” with gnome
@umpirsky, my experience with using one Ubuntu flavor on top of another has also not been stellar. I'd rather keep each one in their own partition.

What Nvidia drivers are you using? Proprietary or open-source? How did you install it? What graphics card are you using (be specific)?

Same thing happens with my brother after a few dozen updates to his 12.04 LTS installation. What version are you running? Have you tried reinstalling Ubuntu?

comment Dell XPS l501x wireless network issue
You're right, this page makes it clear that a new user can only post one link per post. If you think the image would help more than that Ubuntu Help link, you can replace one link with the other.

comment How can I extract a page range / a part of a PDF?
You can download the latest version from the link above, but if you prefer the convenience of the Software Center, you can also install it from there (or from the terminal, through sudo apt-get install pdfsam). However, the version in Ubuntu is quite outdated, as it's still in version 1.1.4 whereas the sourceforge version is already 2.2.2.
