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 ...

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.

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 ...

In case you already have LibreOffice installed, the en_US.aff and en_US.dic files are already on your system in the /usr/share/hunspell folder.

I have this problem in 14.04 According to everything that I look at I'm using En1 (UK) but it is actually En2 (US). eg /etc/default/keyboard says "gb" It switches back regularly. It says UK but it isn't. The keyboard layout chart shows things as they should be, but they aren't. Workaround #1: If I switch from En1 to En2 & back it corrects itself ...

I was experiencing the same issue on a Ubuntu 12.04 PC. I fixed it by taking @hbdgaf's suggestion. Sucks to fall asleep watching something and wake up to find out that the screen saver never came on.

The lightdm config file location has changed in Ubuntu 14.04. To accomplish the same you need to create a new file /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-auto-guest.conf, for example by running gksu gedit /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-auto-guest.conf and putting in this content: [SeatDefaults] allow-guest=true autologin-guest=true ...

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.

This is a complementary answer to the main one. Depending on the aspect ratio, a video image may have or may not have a black space under the video. Considering the linked answer: when the picture has a black space below it, it also has a black space above it, and so the picture is not squeezed, but moved upwards, while the above space is diminished ...

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

You want to install MySQL Workbench. The version you try to install is made for Ubuntu 12.04 and has some versions requirements for some of the deps.
