  2. Hey, Wilson, do you know if the notification icon works fine in this version? I really miss it in 12.10.

    1. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to test it. I think that maybe next week I'll be able to do that.

    3. @Starkiller, I've been busy so I haven't tried it yet. But my guess is that I'll replace 12.10 with 13.04. Be sure that I'll write if something worth of noting exists.

  3. I am sure I will update eventually. Usually a full upgrade comes with it's share of headaches, I 've never had a seamless full upgrade. I usually hold off until some other people try it out first and post their issues

    1. Yes, I'm of the same opinion.
      I've got Xubuntu 12.10 set up to perfection on my desktop machine, I don't want to do anything to upset that.
      If I lived with Ubuntu 10.04 up until installing Xubuntu 12.10 a few months ago- I think I will just leave well enough alone for the moment.
      OTOH, I may try it on my laptop as it is my "experiment with" system...:-)

      I read your e-mail, but I haven't tried it yet. But I can already thank you for the tip. I don't know how you can contact me any other way...
