[ad#ad-1]GIMP 2.7.1 added Single Window Mode and GIMP 2.7.x can now be installed via PPA. It is available here for Jaunty, Karmic and Lucid. I have Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx installed and I installed GIMP 2.7.3 unstable. Here is how you can do it, but if you use it for production, you might want to wait for final stable release.
Launch Synaptic Package Manager and click Settings>Repositories>Other Software and then Add
. Reload the software list and mark for upgrades. That will install GIMP 2.7 and you can enable the Single Window Mode by navigating to Window>Single Window Mode.

UPDATE Nov 21: Just adding the repository:
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/ stable main
will let you install Google Chrome right from Synaptic.
[ad#ad-1]Transmission is the default torrent client with Ubuntu. However, I love ktorrent because of the various features it provides. As I use ubuntu and KDE based softwares require kdelibs to be installed, I usually go for alternatives and I found deluge to be a great alternative for ktorrent. It provides similar features as ktorrent.
[ad#ad-1]I am using Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope and recently encountered a problem updating the package sources or when reloading the repositories so was unable to add new repos via synaptic or apt-get. The console output was something like
