comment What is the “multiply/divide key” mentioned by the Ubuntu installer?
Thinking more about it, the screen does seem to be referring to a single key: toggle on multiply/divide key is singular.

comment What is the “multiply/divide key” mentioned by the Ubuntu installer?
Well, that's what I wondered too, but the asterisk and slash keys of course just print asterisks and slashes. It wouldn't make sense to assign a hotkey to such commonly used keys, so perhaps it requires modifiers. I've tried using different modifiers, and combinations of modifiers. I'm wondering if there is perhaps a special multiply/divide key on extended keyboards (I'm on a laptop, and don't even own an extended keyboard). The installer never asked me which layouts to toggle between, so should I expect to see a text-based pop-up prompting me to select between all the English layouts?

comment Get multiple screens working in 11.10 : The selected configuration for displays could not be applied
The proprietary ATI drivers don't work on my system (ccc crashes a lot). This worked a treat, though. Thanks.
