Graeme: I could probably install ssh on the local web server but not sure what that would achieve - SMB4K works at least as well and is in any case required (I now discover) for things like cross-platform backup controlled by Ubuntu.
(I installed ssh on a Windows 2003 server last time I instantiated a new one, a couple of years ago. After an hour I disabled it and went back to secure FTP: on a brand new server I got thousands of ssh hack attempts in that short time! None were successful but it took up an awful lot of resources.)
I seem to recall having to manually install gimp when I shifted from Hardy to Lucid. The new graphics tool seems to be krita (they really wanted me to use it: it installed about 20 links in various menus!).
Haven't really used any of the graphics tools I installed yet but all I did was work down the Software Centre listing and install those that seemed neither stupid not complicated. :)
