[HOWTO] Enable Alt+F2 in ubuntu 11.04 alpha release

Hi friends, today I am here to write an article on how to return back the old and favorite “Alt+F2” gnome runner back. Basically, its not a problem cause currently Ubuntu 11.04 Lucid lynx is in alpha phase and they are making it better. We do have lots and lots of problem with the Unity but they are adding lots and lots of features right now and I am happy with it cause I am able to write some blog articles. And writing blog articles are fun for me.

Ok, now back to the topic. Open “ccsm”. If you haven’t installed it, install “compizconfig-setting-manager” and then run it. After that, check out the “Gnome Compatibility” option and you favorite runner appears after that. Similarly the menu “Alt+F1” also appears.

Have fun.

[SOLVED] Synaptic not reloading for update without any error

Hi, yesterday I had a unknown problem with my synaptic. I looked after different solutions but none matched nor helped me. Then I went for the command line installation. And I saw that there was the problem reading “lock” file located at “/var/lib/apt/lists/lock”. To fix this problem please follow the steps below.


1) Fire up your terminal and type “sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/lock”
2) Type you password and press Enter

Now the file is removed and you will find that your problem has been solved.
