I just wanted to know whether you are aware of this serious problem with video DVDs burned by k3b that are unreadable in Windows:

Which is the best place to file a bug about this?
I am sure it is real and serious, but it may not get any attention in the ubuntu forum (link above) where it's currently.

I have the following problem: I am backing up my notebook to an external HD. Obviously, this only makes sense if the HD is present. However, I had quite severe problems with backups taking place at times I did not want it to happen. In that case, files are written to the mount path of the external HD (which is then on the internal HD). This got so bad, that my root HD got completely clogged. My X session crashed, and I could not log on again. It turned out that even after freeing some space, my system was unbootable. In the end I lost one day and had to reinstall from scratch.
In other words: I *REALLY* want to turn off the daemon permanently. How can this be done? I thought simply clicking the button in keep would do it. Apparently it didn't. Am I the only one with this issue? (I have seen few people actually having difficulties to get it running automatically).
Any ideas/suggestions would be highly welcome.

Is there a way to activate docked+hidden windows from the command line?
I tried wmctrl, but the docked+hidden windows do not show up there.

I've recently changed from Windows to Kubuntu. I tried beagle, I tried strigi, I tried google desktop search. Non of the search tools were even close to what I wanted.
I was so frustrated that I already tried to run old versions of CopernicDesktopSearch (the tool I liked best when I ran Windows) in Wine. But now the pain is over! Recoll is so much better
than any of those other solutions! I haven't used it a lot, but it looks extremely powerful, so far! Give it a try. - Sep 19 2007
