comment Converting DJVU to PDF
This is good for converting picture-less books in DJVU format, but not for documents with pictures. This is the current solution for me at the moment, and the only one to extract the text. A way to preserve formatting and pictures would be much preferred!

comment Converting DJVU to PDF
I'm afraid djvu2pdf uses ddjvu to export to PDF, which exports images without text.

@fossfreedom I have corrected the device name in the question, and inserted the results of sudo lshw -class Network. Many thanks.

My mistake, I misread the S for an 8, it's actually an EW7318USg. Thanks!

comment Last.FM indicator/notification support
So the answer it appears is "no", at least for now. Whether the last.fm client is open-source or indicator/notification support is being worked on, remain open questions.

Thanks! Are there any references to where this is gone through in more detail/at a slower pace/in layman terms, step-by-step?

comment Is Ubuntu-ARM essentially the same as Ubuntu?
Thanks, I was just pointing out that it isn't the case that all ARM devices are low on graphics (I don't have any hardware.. yet), could be something to do with ARM not playing nicely with Compiz? tbh the front-end graphics isn't as important to me as whether the back-end is (essentially) the same.

comment LastFM no longer free?
Thanks! The desktop client works, though it's a bit buggy with Unity, hopefully (sound) indicators will be supported by 11.10.

comment LastFM no longer free?
Can I use Grooveshark with Banshee such that it plays nice with the sound indicators (display and skip tracks)?

comment Is Ubuntu-ARM essentially the same as Ubuntu?
I'm thinking specifically of trimslice.com/web/trim-slice-features, which could support 3D? Ordinary Unity 3D defaults to 2D if graphics capacity is low (presumably there is a reason ARM doesn't do that...?).
