inteunity-#ubuntu-se <reply> Ubuntu 11.10 använder normalt sett GNOME 3 med skalet !unity. För att använda GNOME Shell istället, installera paketet "gnome-shell" och möjligtvis även "gnome-tweak-tool". För GNOME Fallback mode, som liknar GNOME 2, installera "gnome-panel". Båda paketen placerar alternativ i sessionsmenyn vid login. pangolin

intentions <deleted><reply> I've heard that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. This saying is thought to have originated with Saint Bernard of Clairvaux who wrote, "L'enfer est plein de bonnes volontés et désirs" (hell is full of good wishes and desires). Don't buy it? It has scientific backing! See http://en.wikipedia.…ns#Studies elky

identify <reply> You can identify to NickServ automatically when connecting to freenode. See https://freenode.net…nswer/sasl for more information. When identifying manually, do NOT send the command from a channel's tab, as a typo will give away your password. If that happens, identify and then type « /msg NickServ set password <new-password> » in the server tab as soon as possible. LjL

hotornot <reply> We tend to strongly discourage hot-or-not style discussions about women, as they're known to discourage female geeks from participating in communities. Female participation in geek communities is really low (less than 2% on average :( ), so lets not discourage any more! See also !girls and !women for more information on how to help stop this tragedy. elkbuntu
