[Bug 1116973] Re: Some errors in precise and quantal series of manual


I will make sure these bugs are addressed in the raring branch.

For the precise-e2 and quantal branches, I won't make any changes there
as it would adversely affect the translations.  If you're translating
one of those branches, however, you're welcome to make these fixes to
your translated text.

Thanks for reporting these issues!

  Some errors in precise and quantal series of manual

Status in Ubuntu Manual:

Bug description:
  \\marginnote{You can open your Home folder from the Launcher.} There
  are two ways to locate files on your computer \\dash either search for
  them or access them directly from their folder. You can search for a
  file via the Dash or \\menu{Files \\& Folders} in the Launcher. You
  can also use the \\menu{Files \\& Folders} tool to access commonly
  used folders (such as \\menu{Documents}, \\menu{Music},
  \\menu{Downloads}), as well as most recently accessed files.

  This icon in Launcher now has name "Home Folder", not "Files&Folders".


  [left pane] The left pane of the file browser has shortcuts to
  commonly used folders. When a folder is bookmarked, it appears in the
  left pane. No matter what folder is open, the left pane will always
  contain the same folders. This left pane can be changed to display
  different features (such as Information, Tree, History, etc.) by
  clicking the down arrow beside ``Places'' near the top.

  There is no more down arrow beside "Places", it was in previous
  version of Nautilus. Left pane didn't shows Information and History -
  only Tree or Places.


  Under \\menu{Background}, you may choose from \\button{Wallpapers},
  \\button{Pictures Folder}, and \\button{Colors and Gradients}. When
  \\button{Wallpapers} is selected, you will see Ubuntu's default
  selection of backgrounds. To change the background simply click the
  picture you would like to use. You're not limited to this selection
  though. To use one of your own pictures, click the \\button{+\\ldots}
  button, and navigate to the image you would like to use, double-click
  the image, and the change will take effect immediately. This image
  will then be added to your list of available backgrounds.  If you want
  to choose from a larger selection of desktop backgrounds, click the
  ``Get More Backgrounds Online'' link at the bottom of the ''Appearance
  Preferences'' window. This link will open your web browser, and direct
  you to the \\url{http://art.gnome.org/backgrounds} website.

  No more ``Get More Backgrounds Online'' link. It was in Gnome2.


  Open the Dash, select \\button{Listen to Music}, and choose any of the
  displayed music files (if you have any).

  Where is "Listen to Music"? May be it must be "select Music lens"?


  \\marginnote{You can add new sound themes by installing them from
  Software Center (\\eg, Ubuntu Studio's GNOME audio theme.) You will
  get the installed sound themes from the drop down menu. You can also
  enable window and button sounds.} The third tab is \\emph{Sound
  Effects}. You can enable, disable, or change the existing sound theme
  from this section. You can also change the alert sounds for different

  There is no drop-down menu to choose sound theme in the tab "Sound


  You can manage users and groups using the \\application{Users and
  Groups} administration application. To find this application, click
  \\menu{Session Indicator \\then Systems and Settings \\then User

  No more "Users and Groups" application, there is only "User Accounts"


  Search for \\filepath{ubuntu-restricted-extras} by typing ``Ubuntu
  restricted extras'' in the search box on the right-hand side of the
  Ubuntu Software Center main window. When the Software Center finds the
  appropriate software, click the arrow next to its title.

  Where is this arrow? May be it is "More info" button now?
