Is there a trick to use the Fn<function keys> with non-Unity? I am not a fan of Unity so the first thing I did to my brand new (awesome!) pangolin was put xubuntu on.

So I was running Ubuntu 13.10 for a few weeks and MTP for my Samsung Galaxy S4 was working. I have now switched to my preferred setup with Mint 16 Cinnamon, which is based off of Saucy, and now MTP will not work. The whole reason I decided to upgrade from Mint 15 to 16 was when using Ubuntu 13.10, MTP worked. Why would it not work in Mint 16 but work in Ubuntu 13.10?

Hey, so i have linux 10 and 11, both on the same HDD, but partitioned twice. I wanted to get rid of 11, so i installed win xp on it instead of 11 but i could not connect to any Internet at all. The wifi didnt work, so i plugged in the modem, but it still didnt connect.
It seems as win xp couldn't recognize it at all.
The laptop is an acer aspire 3680.
I'm not sure where to put this, or to say whether this is a problem and a bug. Basically I installed Ubuntu 13.04 in Asus 1225B. If I just let it load after selecting it at Grub, the keyboard and mousepad won't respond at the logging screen, even after logging when I'm using external mouse (and onboard screen keyboard).
