Finally fixed my Ubuntu upgrade issues

Was having subtle issues ever since I upgraded from Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10. The major issues were all fixed the day I upgraded but the subtle issues showed up after. To be honest I cannot really blame the issues on Ubuntu, they may have not been the upgrade at fault with the issues I finally fixed today but rather some buggy software that made it into Ubuntu. Also probably being 64bit had a lot to do with it.
