comment Simplest MTA mail setup for a desktop to receive (ana)cron emails

With Ubuntu 12.04, you only need points 1 to 3 (add ppa, update, install). Automount will work as usual.

comment How to add a “Show desktop” icon to the launcher?
The question already clearly says that the user knows about Ctrl-Super-D, but is looking for a launcher icon shortcut. So it's useless to just reply "I don't know".

comment How can I remove modem-manager from boot?
