comment How do I install Oracle JDK 6?
So when I follow your instructions update-java-alternatives does not see the newly installed Oracle JDK. Is there anyway to synchronize update-java-alternatives with update-alternatives?

Not exactly what you are looking for, but lshw is useful in aggregating your current hardware.

comment How can I check what was installed for an apt package?
I was, but I would note in your answer that this only works for recently install packages. BTW I did upvote you, thanks for the detailed answer.

comment Is there a package for an executable version of v8?
@lazy1, Yeah I compiled it and got it up and running shortly after creating the question. I prefer to do things through APT if possible.

@lazy1, I had seen that. I think d8 is the newer version of v8-shell. It gives an interactive shell that lets you run javascript commands.

comment How do I use gnome trash for files in different partition?
I have my SSD mounted as / and some of the folders in my user /home mount (on a mechanical hard drive) are symlinked onto the SSD drive. While your fix (I created a .Trash-1000 off of /) allows me to use the move to trash option, I can't see the files I've deleted inside the Gnome trash in Nautilus. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the info. Multi monitor support seems even worse in 11.10, hopefully it be functional in 12.04.
