I am a structural biologist who was initiated to Linux during university cycles. Work in academia and open-source software being ethically very closely related, my conversion to Linux became obvious. From now, I use Ubuntu both in my professional environment (structural biology tools are mostly developped under Linux) and for personal purpose. Other center of interests are various and are very often linked to what we can expect and learn with the open-source softwares. Currently, my goal is to get initiated to Blender for fun, to enlight the result of my work and to produce unboring home videos among some other things. And one day, I will get the programming skills I miss to both serve the community and my own needs.

comment In Unity, the folder containing a file selected in the dash is opened in Nautilus instead of opening the file with the corresponding application
Well, it seems that you might be right, @adempewolff. I tried of course beforehand to check if this question hasn't been asked before, but I missed this one. Good point.

I have added a reference to my installation of XFCE, because (see my answer below), removing it restored the expected behavior of the dash.

comment Wireless not working anymore on Acer Aspire 6930G when I upgraded to 12.04
Ok. Iptables is your firewall (off by default) and ufw a more user-friendly application to manage it. If you don't know what they are, chances are big that they are not enabled (and will not be the cause of your problem).

I have exactly the same computer and the wireless works perfectly fine after the upgrade to precise, thus, it is not hardware-related. Do you use iptables or ufw ?

It doesn't seem that this fix was implemented in Pymol (I am running version 1.4.1).

comment Unity “Files & Folders” lens can't find anything
I did paste the output of zeitgeist-daemon --replace in paste.ubuntu.com. I indicated by an arrow on this document when I opened the "Files & Folders" lens. The problem came from my FTS index which got corrupted (see answer below).

comment Unity “Files & Folders” lens can't find anything
When I opened the "Search Files & Folders" lens, I got exactly the same window as you. I could also write in the dash. It was just that the files didn't get ordered or updated after I had typed the beginning of the name.
