If someone tries to patent that, you need only point them to Ren &

Stimpy "Space Madness" where Ren has a hose connected to his brain to

the console. The user control-interface seems to be based on grimaces

and insane cackling coupled to eyebrow waggle sequences. Imagine some

buffin on an airplane doing his final draft for a presentation to the

National Geographic Society. I guess he'd appear less crazy that someone

trying to use Unity to achieve the same goal. Ric

Hi All



What is exactly the difference between Alt-F2 and Win-A in Unity? When

using Win-A I cannot launch or find applications in eg $HOME/bin,

though this is set in my $PATH variable. Using Alt-F2 the application

is found.



And how can I get the correct logo of the program I am making in the dash?

Plenty of people have signed the Code of Conduct. Somewhat less have

then gone on to contribute to Ubuntu. Somewhat less have decided

they'd like to request membership and have gone through the process of

becoming a member. 697 or so in fact. These people are contributors to

Ubuntu. They code, translate, do design work, triage bugs, support

users and perform leadership roles.



Basically these are people who have decided to set aside some of their

time to work on Ubuntu.



These are not what most people would consider "users" or "Joe

Lunchbuckets", but contributors - in some way.

The process for signing the Code of Conduct isn't straightforward.

We've been told that in the past. It would be nice to have a point &

click way to do all that, and when someone develops that I'm sure it

will be evaluated and eventually used. Until then we have what we

have. Some people have tried to make things easier by writing

documentation or making tutorial videos to help people seeking to

achieve this task..

Take some time to read up on GPG. It's not that hard to grasp. I too

was like you, I didn't "get it" and would just generate keys when I

needed them. However when I signed the CoC I decided to set aside a

few minutes of my life to actually learn this stuff. I generated a

key, signed the Code of Conduct and the key is still there. I still

use it because I'm involved in the project. I sign my Tomboy uploads

with it, and it's been used by other people to encrypt sensitive data

like passwords that they need to send me. Useful stuff if you're

involved in the project. If you're not, then no, it's not as much use.



Still, it was only a few minutes of my life to do.

Subject: vpnc disconnects on Cisco PIX rekeying

Message-ID: <201106231554.52578.mikemcginn@mcginnweb.net>

Content-Type: Text/Plain; *charset="us-ascii"



We have a problem with vpnc dropping out when the Cisco PIX firewall it is

connected to rekeys. I have done quite a bit of searching on the web and this

seems to be a problem with vpnc version 0.5.3. According to the home page

referenced in the vpnc manual page this has not been touched since 2009. Does

anybody know of a newer version anywhere that does not exhibit this behavior?

I am quite comfortable building from source if that is required. Alternately,

is there another open source solution for connecting to these devices. The

latest Cisco version I could find is a pig which refuses to compile with the

current kernel.

After the 17th I stopped receiving posts to the list after subscribing

several weeks earlier.

I had noticed that on occasion I would never see the original post but

would see replies.



This a.m. I unsubbed and re-subscribed to the list but still have

received no emails.



What do I need to do to straighten this out?

Thanks

<http://askubuntu.com/questions/30334/list-of-application-indicators>

has a nice list of indicator applets working with Unity.



"Keylock Indicator" seems to do what you want.
