comment SSH without password (shared home folder)
It would be helpful if you went into some more detail about the problems you allude to.

comment Bad owner or permissions on /root/.ssh/config in a virtual machine
This doesn't in any way answer the question of how to configure ssh so that it doesn't complain about the permissions of his key folder.

@Tom Wijsman: allowing remote root logins is considered harmful by some.

comment Is there any GUI tool to configure /etc/fstab?
It seems like this package has now been removed from Debian/Ubuntu as its out of date - doesn't support UUIDs for example.

comment Why do I get random page scrolls in VIM (gvim)?
its definitely not that in this case because I am using my laptop as a desktop with a keyboard and a mouse (and the touch pad is switched off).

Its plain X. It used to work in the past. Dunno if gvim or the window manager is the one that does this.

comment Is SSD better than Superfetch?
Depending on the applications being run you can easily go over 4GB with e.g. firefox + a game. I would go for 8GB + SSD (in fact that's exactly what i've done). User10547 I'm not sure YOU'RE clear on things.

comment Use Internet Explorer 6 and 7 in Virtual Box
is there anyway to fix the activation warnings? I am happy for it to expire after 3 months, but I could do without the 3-day activation limit and the concomitant restarting every hour or whatever

comment on windows 7, vpn'ing to work, how to force all traffic to use VPN?
That blanket statement is not correct. What goes through the VPN (or not) is entirely a matter of your routing configuration. In windows XP there is an option to choose whether all of your traffic goes through the vpn or just traffic on the same network segment. I am not sure if this option exists on windows 7 or what its equivalent is.

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?

comment Install Ubuntu Netbook remix on existing karmic 9.10 installation
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?
