Thanks, I am aware of this, and it is one of the reasons for why I am not recommending a manual installation on Ubuntu. I am a supporter in a Ubuntu Forum (even though I am using Gentoo myself), and I see way too much people facing problems because of manual installations. It is not a big problem to get it to work, but you should either read manuals and be very careful or you should know what you are doing.
