comment Can the Unity dash search for content within files?
Since tatewaki wants full-text content search, which zeitgeist doesn't provide, it looks like didrock's answer is not correct and @sup's answer about recoll is the better. Is there a Unity lens for the metatracker search engine?

@fossfreedom, I think this is still a good and relevant question which should be re-opened. The fact that one app has a well-defined feature-request bug doesn't mean that there isn't some other way to play these videos as intended.

comment Disable auto-mount for particular partitions on USB drives
I can't get gparted to mark it hidden (using precise). I can toggle e.g. the "boot" flag fine, but clicking on the "hidden" flag just spins for a few seconds and leaves it unchecked. It also seems based on this article that this won't allow me to mount it without unhiding it, so it doesn't match what we could do before: Hidden partitions tips - JustLinux Forums

comment How to interpret errors.ubuntu.com graph data?
Thanks for the quick response, but I'm still a bit lost. I updated the question after running across the ErrorTracker stuff (wow!). Also, what defines a "problem", since several problems can exist for one package? What does the "Function" column tell us? I wish that column was wider. Will the mtbf be affected by how much a user uses Ubuntu, or how many packages they use?

comment “Failed to start network default” error when trying to juju bootstrap an LXC environment
So which should it be - with sudo or without? I don't see sudo in the User tutorial — juju v1.0dev documentation

comment “Failed to start network default” error when trying to juju bootstrap an LXC environment
I have zookeeper installed, I've had an rsa key for a long time, and I've rebooted after installing libvirt. But I still get the same Network is already in use by interface virbr0 error unless I use sudo: sudo juju bootstrap. But I don't see you using sudo here, nor do I see it in the juju tutorial. Should that be fixed?
