How do I search in the G+ app??

Anyway, wanted to ask about the theme: widget is dark, but when app opens, it's light. Can widget and app share the same theme?

Tried to install Ubuntu 13.10 this weekend. Generous helpings of #fail . Nothing worked, from keyboard detection to drive partitioning and formatting. At first "Try Ubuntu" worked, but after a failed attempt to install, it stopped working (ended with unresponsive blank desktop).

Finally walked over to a PC and got the 12.04 install image on my USB key. Now installation actually worked.

Very glad to have a functioning OS again. Everything feels very nice, but I'm going to have to get a proper window manager.

Well put. The Plone Foundation should have a cloud run in this way specifically for every member to blog. Would be an excellent example.

Good grief, how do they manage this? The Home, End, Ctrl-Pgup, Ctrl-Pgdn keys are all broken in G+.
Home and End are just dead; the Pg keys don't switch browser tabs.

It's crazy-making. Some days I think it's the MS that's making me fail; other days I just hope I'll eventually find a way out of this rabbit hole.

you can say its just a quick way to instantiate jquery plugins which as a result brings your designer can quickly produce "functional mockups"
