I had the same issue. Changing the location of wins in nslookup.conf did not work, or possibly only got me part of the way there. Install the package libnss-winbind to be able to find windows computers by hostname. I tested it with and without the package installed, and it is indeed necessary for resolving any windows hostname.

In 12.04 you can change the refresh rate by modifying the rate tag in ~/.config/monitors.xml after you configure your monitor(s). This works on reboot for me. Example: <monitors version="1"> <configuration> <clone>no</clone> <output name="DVI-I-0"> </output> <output name="DVI-I-1"> ...

Answers suggesting you edit the conf file are wrong. From the Ubuntu wiki: LighDM configuration is governed by the lightdm.conf file, however it's not suppose to be directly edited, instead use: lightdm-set-defaults I found the file in /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults. You would issue the following on the command line: sudo ...

Basically you need to run echo X > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_videoY/brightness during the boot process after the graphics drivers have loaded with appropriate X and Y. The other answers and comments explain how to find X and Y. While the /etc/rc.local suggestion works, the most consistent way of doing this, in my opinion is the following: Create a ...

cryptsetup luksChangeKey <target device> -S <target key slot number> This will ask you first for a valid pass-phrase (in any enabled keyslot) then will prompt you fro the new passphrase in the target keyslot I'm sure this can be wrapped up in an applet got windows oriented lovers.

Please re-check your files. I suggest that you install recovery programs from Ubuntu Software Center. If you are aware of magic number of deleted files, you can use magicrescue(Recovers files by looking for magic bytes) as the same way above.

This is because 11.10 went End Of Life a year or so ago - it would be much better to upgrade to a newer release like 14.04, which is available from here. An alternative would be to download the packages you need from http://packages.ubuntu.com - e.g. openssh-server server can be found here. You will likely also need to download some the dependencies as well ...

11.10 is no longer supported since 9 May 2013. Upgrading all the way to 14.04 is a long call. I suggest you backup your data and install 14.04 from scratch.

Good luck!!

In Ubuntu 13.10 I found it only in the packet sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool (german in "Optimierungs-Werkzeug") and there in the Setting for the mouse: And here is the old german screenshot (Hebt die aktuelle Position des Zeigers hervor, wenn die Strg-Taste gedrückt und wieder losgelassen wird.)

Create a dummy package which doesn't provide any file but declares that it provides the package names from texlive. There's a tool for that: equivs-build from the equivs package. equivs-build takes a file that declares package dependencies (such as Provides: foo, bar meaning that installing the package is as good as installing the packages foo and bar), and ...

I know this question is over two years old, but using nomodeset was not a viable option for me as it made my machine extremely sluggish, not to mention the lower screen resolution. Fortunately, a fix has finally been released in version 3.13-rc5 of the Ubuntu Kernel. Here's what I did to upgrade my 12.04 LTS install (which was running 3.11): mkdir ...

Here is a slight variation of Hugo's answer. For me the problem was occuring with a particular network despite the "All users may connect to this network" checkbox being already checked. So what I did was to uncheck the box, save, check the box, then save again. I know this seems retarded, but it solved the problem for me.

After running apt-get update my second monitor would not work. So I searched for a while and finally I ran across this post. The solution worked for me as well except I didn't have to do anything after the reboot. I had followed exact instructions until then though. The only other thing I would like to add is in the instructions it just says remove all ...
