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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.


2

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 ...

I know this thread is stale, but I just went through 2 days of getting the solution provided by Dan Menes to work (and Dan's method DOES WORK), but there were some additional steps I wanted to share so that others don't lose 12 hours worktime like I did with the tweaks. So, here we go: First, I was not able to apply Dan's patch with the "patch" command in ...

I've had this issue every time I've upgraded a dual boot system since. I've fixed it every time using boot-repair installed via apt-get from the Ubuntu live CD. Note: You only need to install boot-repair temporarily onto the CD, then run it to fix the problem. The default option has worked for me every time.

Fsando's answer works, but LC_ALL will change the entire locale (date, number, currency format, etc) used by Thunderbird instead of just the time format, which is all that's asked for in the question. Not only that, but I don't like creating extra scripts if I don't have to. Here's what I did: Make sure the en_DK.utf8 locale is available (it should already ...

Have you tried booting from a newer version of Ubuntu and trying to access the same drive as Ubuntu 11.04 is using an older kernel with older drivers and probably some bugs that has been fixed in the newer version that MAY be linked with the problem if it isn't the SSD itself...

have you tried with sudo -i or simply sudo ./yourCommand (or something like that: sudo sh yourCommand ....)? Notice that, unless you've changed it, in Ubuntu you don't know root password. Cheers and merry Christmas, Silvia
