comment Relax ssh rate-limit rules for certain ip addresses
Truth. I'm unclear where my problem actually stemmed from so I'm not sure what kind of information to provide. I assumed it was a common Ubuntu feature and thought this might have been enough to get someone started. I think I resolved the issue though and I'll post my answer below.

comment Is adding the Debian repository to my apt source.list dangerous on Ubuntu?
This is an awesome guide. +1 and accept if I get it to work. Quick question, I don't understand how the apt-src program knows to use the deb-src repo and not a karmic repo. Can you shed some light on that?

hmm, I have guake installed 0.4.0 installed i'm trying to install 0.4.1 though. Is that in one of those repositories? Am I missing it? I updated my question to be more specific.

comment Ubuntu 9.10: how do I troubleshoot a startup script that doesn't appear to run?
This works well. It will work in this case too. I accepted Andrei's because it let me put all the output in one place with one line of code. Your logger method mixes output into the syslog and must be filtered with grep. Regardless, +1

comment Ubuntu 9.10: how do I troubleshoot a startup script that doesn't appear to run?
Unfortunately, I don't know how to verify any of this since I'm missing a tool to troubleshoot. I can't seem to get any type of output from things leading up to or during the execution of this script. So I don't know the context in which it's running .

Unfortunately it's a desktop system. Can I write to a log in my script? Or even better, are there any logs that will automatically capture start-up errors (like not being able to find the command because of an encrypted home directory)?

Will the output of echo always appear on the screen during boot? Or do I have to boot in a special way? sleeping is a good idea +1
