Hello my new Linux friends. I finally got my Ubuntu loaded onto my notebook, thanks to you. Have a lot to learn in the next few days. Been using several tutorials so far. I still have another PC running Windows 7 (my wife's PC) so I still had access to the internet while I was working on this one. Hope all have a good day...and stay out of the cold.
In Tuesday Januaty 7, 2014 ... I:
Purge Unity Lens with:
* sudo apt-get purge unity-lens-video unity-lens-music
... and remove Zeitgeist with:
* sudo apt-get remove python-zeitgeist zeitgeist-core zeitgeist-datahub

Intel Graphic section.
For Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, you'll need to update your mesa stack using the x-updates PPA.
On the command line (as root), run
apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-quantal xserver-xorg-lts-quantal libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-quantal
apt-get -y dist-upgrade
glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version" # verify you have mesia 9.1.6
Then log out and back in, or reboot.

I have a toshiba portege m100 that I couldn't locate a recovery disk for, so I installed the ubuntu 12.3, and it was working fine. Then, I got a message to upgrade to the 13.04 version, and as it was going thru the process, it stopped and I got a message that it couldn't continue the upgrade. Now, when I log into the the OS, my computer will not boot up to let me go online. What should I do, to reinstall the old 12.3 version? When I tried to reinstall the OS with the disk, it doesn't recognize the disk in the drive. Please help me...thnx much.

My Gateway 9300 is not my main laptop, but it is like new and I still use it for fun. It has an 800 mhz processor with 512mb ram, and runs fast, except not fast enough for adobe flash player to work. My other laptop, IBM T60 with dual core processor, 1.66 ghz, is extremely fast, running 10.04 just fine, thank you(hate unity.) Anybody know a processor upgrade for my 9300?
agedu scans a directory tree and produces reports about how much disk space is used in each directory and subdirectory, and also how that usage of disk space corresponds to files with last-access times a long time ago.
In other words, agedu is a tool you might use to help you free up disk space. It lets you see which directories are taking up the most space, as du does; but unlike du, it also distinguishes between large collections of data which are still in use and ones which have not been accessed in months or years – for instance, large archives downloaded, unpacked, used once, and never cleaned up. Where du helps you find what's using your disk space, agedu helps you find what's wasting your disk space.
