And so i changed the default Unity Desktop to Gnome 3 Desktop a few days back. I noticed that the VLC on Gnome 3 video playback lags by a few fps, I also tried with the default video player on Ubuntu 12.04 but there's no luck. After digging the internet for a fix or a work around, I learned that there is a new Gnome Guidelines for System Tray messaging. What happened here is that Gnome decapitated the System Tray notification area, meaning Gnome will not support some applications that has messaging on Gnome3's System Tray (that sucks right?) well anyway here at the list of applications from Gnome's website: Message Tray Compatibility.

I am not quite amazed by the default GUI of Ubuntu 12.04, the Unity desktop or maybe I'm used to the old and classic Gnome UI. That's why I installed the latest version of Gnome. Gnome 3 has been around for years now and since I upgraded my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to Ubuntu 12.04 this is also the time to try Gnome 3.

After a long wait for a LTS version of Ubuntu I finally installed their latest release the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin, I installed it on my Compaq CQ40 the AMD Turion X2 64-bit with ATI Radeon version.
The installation went smoothly and when I attached my LED monitor (Samsung SyncMaster SA300) and try to configure the multi-monitor setting, I got this error message "The selected configuration for displays could not be applied".

I recently got interested in Android development and wanting to learn (and if permits, a career shift! ) this awesome mobile programming.
If you look around the internet, most of the references that you will find there are mostly about Android Development from Eclipse IDE and it is also the IDE of choice by Android Developers see here. As for me, I want it somewhat "from scratch" that way I'll learn how an Android Application execute.
Android Developers provided a Developers Guide when Building and Running an Android Application from Command Line, but for a newbie like me with roughly 5% Android development knowledge, it is too advance for me to understand those. That's why I decided to do a step-by-step setting up an android development environment in 4 easy steps.

I've been using Citrix for a while now on my virtual machine Windows XP and I'm wondering if there's a Citrix Client for Linux, in this case, I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. So I tried browsing Citrix's website and look at their download page.
To find the .deb file to be installed in your Ubuntu Lucid Lynx box follow this steps:
1. Download the .deb file here.
