comment Permanently change keyboard layout
udev is the service that manages your devices. The command signals to this service that there's been a change to your input subsystem and that it should re-detect things and reconfigure. Rebooting your system should have the same effect.

comment How do I install a Canon PIXMA MX700 as a standalone wired network printer?
-1: The nmap suggestion is insightful, but the MX700 includes a network config display that shows what it's IP address is directly, so nmap is unnecessary for this. Also, the suggested URI is incorrect for this hardware.

Could be quite a variety of things. Sometimes errors appear in your log files. Have you scanned through your logs for relevant error messages?

comment Messed up my hybrid graphics configuration
Manually installing fglrx ruins your OS. tsk tsk. May as well wipe and reinstall. You can try deleting xorg.conf, purging all fglrx, and undoing all edits.

comment What is the correct way to install proprietary ATI Catalyst Video Drivers (fglrx) directly from AMD?
If it installs ok, you can ignore that error. I think the installer checks for that to detect previous installations. If it prevents you from installing the driver, then file a bug report.

comment Are the newly launched NVIDIA drivers supported in Ubuntu or will they be?
Yes, if you do a system update it'll pull in all sorts of random bits from proposed. There are ways to pin it to just the driver (described elsewhere in askubuntu).

comment Are the newly launched NVIDIA drivers supported in Ubuntu or will they be?
Both -304 and -310 should be there. If not, a) update, and b) scroll down in Additional Drivers. For Valve Steam games you likely do want -310.
