Okay I really didn't want to have to format my OS, it's like the fifth time now!

My OS: Ubuntu 14

Anyways, I've deployed dozens of Ethereum contracts without problem. Then, after updatting to newest Ethereum I've been unable to deploy anything since. This is what happens:

No matter how much ether I send, or slide the bar up and down, nothing changes the provided fee being less than what is required.

I would try "hacking" Mist by editing the source code to manually change values, but so far I haven't been able to do that.

No problem creating wallets by the way.. Except it says it will consume 0 gas (I don't believe it did that before) Any ideas what I should do? I'll accept "format" as an answer

I also spent a lot of time on this issue, before I realized that the Maximum Fee field is manually editable. Just click on the gas amount (153,....) and type the amount you think is appropriate.
