comment Maven only invokable from terminal while root
I did not use SU to install. I unpackaged the tar file and sudo cp to copy it to /usr/local. Your advice worked! Thanks! Small typo though I think you meant sudo chmod -R :D

comment Monospace font is not mono spaced in eclipse, why?
The issue here is that the default bold monospace font in 12.04 DOES have a different sized character when using bold vs. non bold for the same size. This is a HUGE issue in Eclipse where bolding is used heavily.

I had to end up un-bolding everything in Eclipse because this was driving me up the wall. I need to try this though!

comment How can I make the draggable window border thicker, without changing the appearance?
thank you SO much @pgwulfing this is FINALLY the answer I've been looking for. The hotkeys don't work for me because I have an interactive ubuntu environment through a chrome tab and hotkeys are finicky at best with it.

comment How to set JAVA_HOME for OpenJDK?
@DavidEdwards Apparently my JDK wasn't even installed :) Installed open JDK 7 with the package manager and all was good! I'm working with a foreign Ubuntu build so wasn't sure the extent to which it was set up.
