Comment 141 for bug 349519

I am not a Pro, but I will try to help. First make sure you have
installed "GDebi Package Installer" from the Add/Remove Applications menu.

Then down load to your desktop the patch.

Open the patch with GDebi Package installer. (right click on the file on
your desktop, it should default to open with the GDebi Installer).

I think then, you can reboot and try the switch again and it should work.
