    What command is invoked when we press Ctrl + R
    In Ubuntu we oftenly use ctrl+R to reload our desktop or nautilus file manager. it finally reloads all icons. Now the question is which command is invoked when we are pressing ctrl + R See I am actually trying to refresh my desktop using refresh option in context menu. please don't laugh but I have managed to bring refresh command in context menu using nautilus-actions but I am still not able to relate appropriate command to the menu item. the solution will be highly appreciated

    Updating Karma
    Dear Moderators, I was going thru some of the posts in Getting Started with Linux" Section I clicked on applaud to update the karma of one person and then when I did it to update the karma of another good reply I was told that I could update only one karma in every 6 hours. I have a suggestion here : you can keep this policy for un-registered user (if you are allowing unregistered users to update karma ofcourse) But in case of registered users you can have a different policy like every registered user can update as many karma as they want but they cannot repeat it on a same reply. Because a person like me is able to see the forum once in a 6-7 days. Please think it over and also reply if there is any loop in the suggestion made. Thanks & Regards Chaitanya Parekh Enjay - Bhilad

    RE: Wireless Card on Old Laptop
    Please your hardware information. also let us know about the version of Xubuntu that you are trying to install. once you get to boot your system with Live CD or USB you can check whether your wireless operates or not. You can try lspci once you get to boot it to identify which wireless make you are using. Below is the location from where you can download xubuntu 10.10 Live CD http://www.xubuntu.org/getubuntu#maverick it needs 192 mb of minimum ram in your system to boot with Live CD or Install Xubuntu and it needs atleast 2gb of hard disk space to install. Don't live it just get it done. Post your further replies here
