Or perhaps try another language ...

Re: Cant change wallpaper

Quite possibly, after the CD install there were hundreds of updates so I just selected all of them rather that reading through them. Ok, as I said the PAE thing was just me being lazy, but ordinarily I do look for a solution both here and on google before posting, but I was just checking that you we...

You can change Firefox themes tho, if you search "linux theme" in FF add-ons you may find something that you like.

Re: Grub error 17 - may not be my only problem

Thanks for your reply, I figured I should be dealing with grub2 as its a newer release but https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 says "Stage 1.5 has been eliminated." and I am getting the error in stage 1.5, which is what threw me. Anyway according to grub-install -v I have version 1.98+20100804-1...
