Brilliant. Really grateful for that. I'd looked in all the "obvious" places but I guess I'm so spoiled by ubuntu that I overlooked the most obvious one of all.
Big help. Thanks again.

Unfortunately, I do need to reinstall. This is a genuine HD crisis, not software-related.
The data edge-connector has vibrated itself to the point of no return and I just hope I can keep it in there long enough to get everything off of it.
It only works at a particular angle (propped up with a book, an MP3 player and a cup).
I love ubuntu and would happily keep with it, but this crisis seems to be an ideal opportunity to try a new distro.
