comment can't install libcairo2-dev under ubuntu 12.04
I have the same problem. It is crazy in the today-current(5th sept 2013) sudo apt-get update-ed packages lists that are in /var/lib/apt/lists/ there is only a mention of libcairo2 version: 1.10.2-6.1ubuntu2. Anyway I cannot even find how the 1.10.2-6.1ubuntu3 version commes up. It is here shown that the later version is an update. Still I cannot find it in any lists. In essence the 1.10.2-6.1ubuntu2 version should be working.

comment Differences of: SoftwareCenter history, dpkg-query and /var/log/dpkg.log.*?
Thank you for confirming most of my initial thoughts. I'm grateful you checked the mans (I tried that already myself prior to asking here) about the location of record/bookkeeping regarding the time/date of installation / removal of packages. Then it seems its only in the /var/log/dpkg.log.* files. That is fine I guess. Just a pitty if they ever get lost

comment How to make a fresh install while also creating new partitions and keeping encrypted home directory
How much data are we talking? Is your data of so little value that a complete backup (on a new aprox 60USD external HDD) would not be a most justifyable investment? What are the disk/partition sizes involved?

comment Where synaptic touchpad settings in user account?
Thank you @MrSeed. The trouble with that config file is that it is "global" (shared between the user accounts) and hence I doubt can be the culprit/cause because then the touchpad would not be working in all user accounts. But it is only malfuncitoning in one user account. It is indeed strange. Thank you for your effort

comment Where synaptic touchpad settings in user account?
xinput list (in my setup) renders the same result as xinput without parameters. I have stated in my question the result. It seems I have xinput "see" my touchpad, though it seems not working.

comment Where synaptic touchpad settings in user account?
I like that suggestion with the Touchpad-Indicator but I cannot find it in synaptics/apt-get install nor do I have it as a command being able to be run at command line. How to run it? Thank you!

comment Is there a ubuntu supported X.org alternative (i.e. with security in mind)?
thanks for the answer! Still, not running a GUI cannot be honestly considered a another solution for a "X"-alternative. If it is not **G**(graphical) UI then it ain't an alternative. I am looking forward to Wayland. As you describe it might at last bring some improvements. The security holes via GUI are considerable at present. The wayland security is also well discussed here lwn.net/Articles/517375

comment Ubuntu 12.04 “Do nothing” when “lid closed” blanks out external monitor
I agree, that seems handy. Still "nothing" and "blank" (or black/off) are two different options. I see no reason that there should be a setting nothing, that counterintuitively does something. Anyhow, thanks for suggestion to move the mouse, just like you it took me a while to figure that this brings back the other screen.

comment Get the audio from Line-in to output to the speaker
Thx, it seems so simple. I have in the meanwhile checked myself and it must be quite similar this pactl unload-module <ID of the modul> so the module name would not work in this case, which is counterintuitive... pactl list modules can yield the necessary <ID>. Thanks for responding.
