or alternatively you can run
sudo ln -s ~/.themes /root/.themes
sudo ln -s ~/.icons /root/.icons
to make the ones in your home folder apply to everything

ah ok np :) the unselect all button still has the same function as the clear button tho,
one thing i thought i might report, when you select the changelog tab, the program hangs for a 3-4 seconds, i wonder if there might be a way to resolve this by threading out the aptitude command.

I'll let you know if it is still as good after 10000 bootups

i boot about once every 2 days,
365 days a year....
damn it would take me about 50 years to clock up 10000 boots :)

it supports it fine, imho theres no point in using the x86_64 version of ubuntu+derivatives, phoronix did a benchmark that showed there was absolutely no benefit for most things, the exception was video encoding, and the software problems of 64 bit are too much hassle or me.
