I have 2 x 2 GB memory sticks in my machine, why does System Monitor report 3.8 GiB? Where is the other memory going? Even if it is being used by the kernel, it seems that the system should report 4096 MB.
There have been a number of posts from people using Fedora asking essentially the same question that I am about to ask. With that in mind, it seems unlikely that I will get an answer.
I like to use KNemo as network monitor in system tray instead of networkmanager applet. Today I noticed that it is no longer visible even though system monitor shows it running.:C (See attached screenshot.) It is set to open automatically on login in systemsettings and 'Icon hiding' is set to 'Do not hide'. ('nuther screenshot.) Any one else seeing this?

My primary linux/ubuntu partition shows up twice (both instances display similarly) under the file system tab of gnome-system-monitor. Not sure if this has something to do with my fstab file (output below). I've also attached a gnome-system-monitor screenshot.

I am constantly getting request to run reports on our AIX server for system health (cpu, io, memory, etc) when users experience performance issues. We are using SolarWinds to monitor system health and it works great for cpu and disk space; however, I cant seem to get memory and io to work correctly.
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 on an HP Compaq Pro 6305 Microtower with an HP Compaq LA2006x display. After simultaneously connecting a second monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 2494), some dis- and reconnecting of it, and some playing around with AMD Catalyst Control Center I somehow managed to generate four Applications/Places launchers, four workspace switchers, four taskbars etc.
I am trying to connect my external monitor with my laptop and to use it as the only output. If I disable the laptop display, activate the external monitor and set it as the primary output, everything seems to work fine. Yet the desktop displayed by KDE seems to be twice the length of the physical monitor. That means that e. g.
