comment Blank screen, blinking cursor on boot
Fwiw, I have one box that also has this symptom on 10.04, but holding the shift key never brings up GRUB for some reason. Seems to take about 3 tries to get it booted.

comment How do I set different settings for different mice?
Sure, no prob. Really, it's the same format as xorg.conf so if you've ever had the fortune of editing xorg.conf, you'll know it. man xorg.conf serves as a good reference. Driver-specific settings can be had via their man pages, e.g. man intel, man evdev, man wacom, et al.

However, there's a lot of stuff that doesn't require "opening the hood" that a person could do to help a lot - triaging bugs, answering user's questions, tracking down good patches worth including in Ubuntu. Stuff that doesn't really face these particular problems.

Actually, what we need is not really more bug reports (we've got TONS), but rather people to go through all the reports that people have sent in to Ubuntu, sort the good from the bad, and help users where possible. We actually have fairly little trouble getting lots of people to test; many of them don't know how to write 'good' bug reports, but with some triaging work they can be improved (and forwarded upstream for further work). It's

We've got a bunch of docs at wiki.ubuntu.com/X to help people who want to help on X. Covers basic X issues, describes some of the X bug handling processes, and so on. It's a wiki so feel free to add to it, too.
