Fix Virtualbox clipboard (copy & paste) functionality between the host and guest machine

First make sure you have this option enabled
Then on your guest machine (i.e. running on Virtualbox), kill the VBoxClient process then run VBoxClient-all.
I'm not sure, but I strongly think this should only work only after installing the Virtualbox additions.

Ubuntu 13.10: Installing Xfce 4.12

I had a very nice impression when I tried Xubuntu. That was exactly the idea I had about linux. Stylish, very fast, space savvy and highly configurable. There is nothing I've tried to customize with Xubuntu's panels that I couldn't.

Here is how to have this nice experience alongside Ubuntu's Unity

sudo su
add-apt-repository -y ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.10
add-apt-repository -y ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12
apt-get -y update
apt-get -y install xfce4
The -y switch is to assume "yes" to all questionsAdding xfce 4.10 ppa will avoid you some dependencies problems
