I can, but recall and note that due to the severity of the problems of Ubuntu 11.04, I have reinstalled Ubuntu 10.10.

Your links are not applicable to the issues I am having. Furthermore, they are outdated. My `question` here focuses specifically on Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal.

I'm fine with Ubuntu 10.10 and earlier.
