comment How do I keep terminal line from overwriting itself?
OK, so what happens if you set PS1 to something rather simpler? Say something like \u@\h: \w\a\ or just zzzzzzzzzzzzz> (just to keep it long).

Ah. OK, I suspect the setting for the PROMPT now. Can you post the values of PS1 and TERM. In fact, post the line defining PS1 in .bashrc

Hmm, what are the values of LINES and COLUMNS when the text is messed up?

comment Need a way to restrict maximum screen size due to monitor hardware issues
If you need specific help on changing the screen resolution, you need to let us know what video hardware and what driver you are using.

comment Denied access to an ext4 partition after doing a `mount -a` command
One question - how big is the drive? There can be issues with drives >2.1TB. Other than that, the fstab entry looks ok & ext4 is fine so nothing there. That's why I kind of assume it must be a permissions issue.

Also, if you are just starting out with Ubuntu, you are probably better off using the latest release (12.04) if you can.

Just to confirm - do you mean with Gnome desktop or Unity?
