I have just realised that you said you have installed 13.10, which
does not exist at all.  13.04 is in Beta and 12.10 and 12.04 are
available, so I suspect it may be 12.10 that you have used.  In fact
12.10 has some issues, so probably you would be better with 12.04
anyway.  The first number (12) is the year, and the second is the
month of release, so 12.04 is April 2012.
