comment How can I keep recent files from appearing in Unity?
This no longer works in 13.04, despite being blacklisted, items still show up in the Dash.

comment Evolution in 12.10 painfully slow
Thanks for the response. But no, it isn't IMAP just standard POP inboxes (I have several email addresses) that are affected.

comment Install Ubuntu 12.04 64bits on dell XPS 14 ultrabook
Had the same problem and resolved it with Martin's answer, thanks. To answer JDS's question; the XPS 14 works perfectly from install, arguably better than windows 8. In Ubuntu the trackpad works, wireless works great (both 2.4 and 5GHz), sleep and hibernate both work hitherto without problems (I get the BSOD often when resuming from sleep in Windows 8). Graphics worked fine, however Ubuntu didn't detect my Nvidia graphics card which meant it was on all the time and affecting battery life (2-3h), installation of bumblebee corrected this and turned off the card and battery life is now 5-6 hours.

comment Evolution in 12.10 painfully slow
I was using 3.6.0 up until a few days days ago and unfortunately have had these problems since I installed 12.10, then 3.6.2 came through via Update Manager so I eagerly updated hoping it would solve all my problems. However it didn't make any difference whatsoever, everything was just the same, so I thought I'd post here.

comment Nautilus Opens Devices on Every Log in
Fixed it, although there doesn't seem to be a way to do this via Ubuntu itself. I had to use Ubuntu Tweak and set it not to open folder automatically under Tweaks > File Manager. Of course this now means that when I insert a removable drive I have to open Nautilus manually, shame it is either or, but that seems to be the way of it with 12.10.
