WOW!!!, that sure is SOME todo list :-)
I'll be going through all of it step by step.

Just a question concerning Gearth: I had tried:

sudo apt-get install lsb-core

but i got an error saying something like lsb-core is deprecated (it did no find it), and replaced by lsb-base, lsb base was installed but gearth installation said there were missing depndencies...

Any idea why? (before I try again)

BtW: ;-) THANKSSSS

Did it tell you which were the missing dependencies because without that it is difficult to comment why it acted like that.

uhhhhhh nope..... bah, yes it told me, but I did not take note. And it was an experimental install in a virtual box machine. Since It went bad and I started having repos not found and all that stuff I deleted it. Tomorrow IŽll do a fresh install again (in vbox) and do the gearth install step by step, IŽll copy all the console errors (if any) and build a sort of "log". ...

and ...I'll be back
