comment can't enter in ubuntu 12.04
Just reinstall. Why waste time trying to figure what is the problem? stick the CD in, and in few minutes, you'll be done. Always keep your data on a separate disk. I install and uninstall Linux all the time ;)

comment VMware Player and Ubuntu 12.04 - Full Screen
I am using VBox on Ubuntu 12.04. It works very well, no problems. Installed windows on it. Easy to install guest additions. Can get full screen mode, copy/paste, mounted my Linux file system to windows as g:\ drive. no problem. if VMware gives you problems, you could give VBox a try.

comment ia32-libs will not install due to dependency problems
That would be a big problem also for running Wolfram research CDF player on Linux. Since ia32-libs are needed to run the player!

comment How to remove the tips within Nautilus 3.6?
I tried all of that. These 'balloon' like hints show every where. That is why I think they are global setting because when I use firefox and move the mouse near a tab at the top, a little balloon comes up with text in it giving the name of the tab (annoying). I can't figure where this setting is defined though. I know on windows where it is, but this does not help me on Linux. I find configuring Linux much harder than windows actually. On linux, things are all over the place, and many configuration tools that seem to do similar things and one does not know what to try.

comment How to remove the tips within Nautilus 3.6?
does not work. Status bar was de-selected any way. Selecting it just changes the color of the message from yellow to black/white. I think this hint is a global setting, not local to the file manager. I am noticing more hints in other apps. For example, with firefox, when I move the mouse near a tab at the top, I get a ballon hint. Like those one sees using windows file manager. So, I think this sitting is a desktop thing that spans over many apps.
