Shipping is extra :) The UK is one of the most expensive places to live in the whole world. Check out our fuel prices :(

When I did this, it listed all sources and sinks as suspended, and trying to use pactl to un-suspend them as per the man page failed silently.

As far as sound stuff goes, I did mess around with it a bit, but then, as far as I can remember, put it back just the way it was after the install. And I distinctly remember seeing that the Pulse Audio package (the one with the server in it) wasn't installed then.
The trouble is that I can't list installed packages by type as far as I can see. So I don't really know what I have.
As for partitions, I have about 40Gb for OS and then most of the rest for /data which contains /data/home :) Great minds think alike I guess. I do also have a huge Windows partition on there too for the same reason.
Is it possible you could make a list of all the packages installed on your system, filtering out any that are totally irrelevant, and post it here? I know it's a lot to ask.
As for Ubuntu flavours, all I know is that XUbuntu is supposed to be the cut down version, minimal desktop, etc. etc. and I used to install that one for precisely that reason. However as this is the wife's machine I figured Kubuntu would be more (inexperienced) user friendly and so a better choice.
What exactly are the differences between Ubuntu and Kubuntu?
