comment How do I prevent windows opening on one of my desktops?
many applications ignore the primary monitor feature (or possibly save the last screen the application was on, or alternatively get confused when you connect or disconnect monitors and open on a different on) windows + <- doesn't work for speedfan which is the application that broke the camel's back this morning (although windows + up or down do work with it).

comment Install Ubuntu Netbook remix on existing karmic 9.10 installation
I had the same problem as the questioner so I installed the normal version of 9.1 on my netbook. When I go to "Mark packages by task" there is no option for netbook remix - any idea why?

I also couldn't get the netbook installer to boot on my netbook so I installed the normal 9.1 image. I tried installing netbook-launcher but I get the error "E: Couldn't find package netbook-launcher". Do I need to add a repository?

i tried uninstalling it again today and the same symptoms occurred, so I put it back on. It seems pc-tools has my internet access hostage!
