comment How to open directory in Guake from Nautilus
For Ubuntu 13.04 I had to put the script into /home/$USER/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/ I also had to put the -t onto a new line e.g: guake -n "$dir" -r "`echo ${dir%/} | rev | cut -d'/' -f1 | rev`" guake -t

comment What is the correct way to install proprietary ATI Catalyst Video Drivers (fglrx) directly from AMD?
With the hd 5670 card I had to skip driver 12.10 completely and install the beta 12.11. Instructions here askubuntu.com/a/206025/55564. With Quantal Quetzal the ati 12.10 driver was incompatible with unity and after login compiz would crash.

comment Ubuntu 12.04 upgrade: Grub update-grub fails after update
In the end I fixed this by running boot-repair help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair Installed through the 11.10 live cd. The default repair fixed the problem for me, although it didn't change the names of my grub records, so I now select Linux 3 to boot Ubuntu. I'm sure I can fix that issue separately by editing the grub config.
