I will drop Xubuntu desktop and only use it as a headless server with vagrant.

comment Can I install Ubuntu inside Windows?
@icedwater When I first started I made an attempt, after struggling with major performance issues (NFS mainly) I was strongly advised to make a clean install or a new partition.. If you want it "for work", I'd go for Virtualbox + Ubuntu.. I use it for a year, works flawlessly.

comment How to migrate user settings and data to new machine?
could it be because rsync before copying made a connection and asked for the password of the user for the source machine? in constrast with netstat? I am just saying this to help folks who will try to do the same, maybe rsync should be a proposed as a faster and more modern solution?

I don't think I have abused sudo... actually I used an rsync command that worked a lot faster (like 1/10th of the time) and only got one error.. all files copied, with proper permissions.. but I will verify on Monday exactly. Are you sure the fact that the destination is a VM has nothing to do with it?

Hi @Lekensteyn, I get many "Cannot open" and "Cannot mkdir: no such file or directory" ... Does the same apply when trying to do that on a VM (as guest) ?

comment Is Logitech's Unifying receiver supported?
the loss of signal happens when there's a USB device close to the USB port of your receiver.. I was going crazy over that then I just switched ports (put the receiver far away)

comment Installing Photoshop CS5 on Ubuntu 12.10 using Wine
yeah but it's dead slow unless you have 16GB ram and a lightspeed SSD... in which case you run Win7 natively and Ubuntu on the VM :-)

how then would you explain that enabling a monitor and saving a new xorg.conf via nvidia-settings makes all styling disappear? (and replaced by a dump default grey style)

comment Keyboard volume shortcuts in XUBUNTU don't work
unfortunately I don't have these menus/settings, this how-to is a bit outdated.. (so basically there's no "sound/media" category, all I get is a list of shortcuts with an add possibility but you have to type the command yourself.. and again, hitting the buttons actually does show something but the volume is not changed..
