Im glad you got it working. I can't say I helped, but I do remember a late night drunken conversation with you. Is 14.04 treating you well?
your tutorial was the one that ultimately worked for me (after figuring something else out). and lol you were drunk?
even if the tutorial never existed you could say you helped, and I'm pretty sure I already clicked on the thumbs up next to your name.
14.04; dislikes: my hot corners no longer work consistently and the fix that worked in 12.04 isn't a fix anymore, compiz crashes sometimes when I use the workspace switcher, I can't move the window controls to the right side of the title bars anymore, my wallch shortcut key for "next wallpaper" broke
I had to recompile a couple of my wallets and I'm going to have to reinstall civilization 4-- but those are minor gripes.
likes: MUCH smaller launcher icons, YAY! bitsharesx compatible, it fixed a minor guake bug that i had been working around umm... and it just feels kinda good to be running the latest version just for the sake of it-- that's more time I've bought myself before I have to upgrade again (assuming some new DAC doesn't force that on me)
all in all, it was a pain in the ass to set back up, but I'll live.
