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.

comment 'tools.jar' is not in IDEA classpath
this helped a lot but now I'm getting: tools.jar' seems to be not in IDEA classpath. Please ensure JAVA_HOME points to JDK rather than JRE.

comment How do I set the GNOME Classic login to be the default with autologin?
gnome-fallback is perfect and what I need for my remote instance since screen updates aren't sent 100% during animations / screen redraws. But I don't think this setting is getting set correctly as Libre Office is still doing silly window resizing when multiple are open and I click its launcher icon. How can I verify this command has been sent correctly and is sticking?

comment How do I install LibreOffice 4?
Unfortunately this isn't updating Libre Office for me. I'm running 12.04 LTS which comes packaged with Libre Office 4.042. Running sudo apt-get upgrade returns 0 new things to install. I've downloaded the standalone installer but don't know the current path of Libre Office's install to point the installer to.
