some Ubuntu tweaks for general working

To add Open in Terminal to the right-click context menu for folders displayed in Ubuntu, followed this page
and installed with
sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal

To install Adoble Flash Plugin, Software Center had Adobe Flash Plugin installer. But even after that, radiosai streams did not work - apparently that was due to absence of mp3 codec. Installing GStreamer plugins for mp3 and so on from Software Center solved that issue.

To avoid having to adjust the brightness every time on reboot, followed this workaround.
cat /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/max_brightness
to get the value for max brightness, and then put that or a corresponding value - I used 8 - at the end of /etc/rc.local as
echo 8 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness

Apparently the correct solution is to fix it in grub, as given here
