comment How do I work with GUI tools over a remote server?
@Shadur - my latency isn't great event on the command line, perhaps I should not even attempt a UI tool because it will probably be too slow.

comment How do I work with GUI tools over a remote server?
@imz - currently I'm interested in the general problem. I'm not experieniced with linux GUI apps at all, so I have no idea what I want right now... the first use that comes to mind is navigating folders in an Explorer like fashion, and perhaps editing.

There is no Explorer equivalent for Ubuntu? Seriously?

comment What is the proper way to manage multiple python versions?
OK, to resolve I recreated the symlink to point to python 2.6. I still don't understand it, but it works - I'll refer to 2.7 explicitly when I need to / use alias.

You mean Ubuntu 11.04, not 10.04, right? I'm still not grocking how releases work - it's weird to have to upgrade an entire OS just for me to change the default python installation.

comment What is the proper way to manage multiple python versions?
Just to note - I don't think there was anything wrong in the way I installed python 2.7. The only "unorthodox" move was changing the symlink, which I thought was the proper way to set it as default. Is there a better way?

comment What is the proper way to manage multiple python versions?
I thought that it's only reasonable to change the default python installation once I upgraded. I want it as default because I want to work with the newer python ... as default. When I type python from bash, I want to get the new python. Is there a better way to do this than what I did?

"Screwed up python installation" - any idea what exactly is missing. Is CommandNotFound a core python module, or can/should I install it separately?

@Faheem - I don't understand your question. What do you mean by "official"? I needed python 2.7, so I installed it. I am the admin of this box. I installed python by doing make/make install, didn't do anything fishy (I think).

comment Are changes in crontab applied when the file is saved, or when the editor is closed?
Yeah, I noticed that, but wanted to make sure. After all, it could have printed it to stdout when I saved, "or something". Thanks for the confirmation.
