My logitech wireless trakball has been doing the unwanted double clicks. I want to set whatever de-bounce filter to a longer periond. Logitech has been good quality and I didn't have this problem with opensuse 11.4 which I replaced with ubuntu mooose@secretbase:~/0/ARECORD$ uname -a Linux secretbase 3.13.0-43-generic #72-Ubuntu SMP Mon Dec 8 19:35:06 UTC ...

I would expect from an Ubuntu LTS release such as yours to have the latest stable version of all those software you mentioned. You are 2-years into the 5-years support period of your release, so I think this is a reasonable expectation. Upgrading to 14.04 doesn't seem like a great idea. Upgrading is a sensitive operation not to be taken lightly, potentially ...

One option I can think of, perhaps is to use the Dropbox API, and a carefully crafted curl command to send your file up to your dropbox. This will allow you to send the file up, without needing to keep it synced on your workstation. See this API command: https://www.dropbox.com/developers/core/docs#files_put

On another forum I saw this works. Insert SD card and type into terminal as root: rmmod tg3 modprobe -v tg3 It's not automatic unfortunately - have to type it every time.

I suspect that your relatively new device is not covered in the relatively old 12.04 kernel. I suggest you get a temporary internet connection. Open a terminal and run: uname -r Is your kernel version annotated '-pae'? If so, please do: sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-cw-3.10-precise-generic-pae If not, do: sudo apt-get install ...

Sorry you cannot launce wubi.exe from bios, it is a Windows program. Install it in Windows. "Burn" your Ubuntu iso file to your usb stick, and from wubi install it (inside windows) You end up with a windows boot, and can run Ubuntu in wubi, this is not a dualboot.

I spent hours trying to upgrade and downgrade packages, but the solution appears to have been a lot simpler than that. While researching, I found this question. The specific answer that helped is this one. All I did was: sudo apt-get install xfdesktop4 and after a reboot, the icons and wallpaper appeared on my desktop. I hope this will be helpful for ...

As no one has answered your question after 14 hours, I'm supposing you're not running an Ubuntu server. (If my assumption is wrong, drop me a note @Fabby and I'll correct) Use VNC for any GUI version of Ubuntu: it'll send graphics over the RDP link and it will work no matter what language you're using... שָׁלוֹם

I hit this exact problem doing an upgrade from 12.04 -> 14.04. I was unable to kill the frontend process as described above, because although I could launch an Xterm window, sudo and su segfaulted due to the system being half-upgraded. However, I recovered from the situation by rebooting, going into recovery mode, and getting it to fix broken packages. This ...

Instead of using 192.168.171.1, use 192.168.171.2. In VM 10, if you click on Edit, Virtual Network Editor, select VM8, under VMnet Information, select NAT, click on NAT Settings and there you'll find what your GW IP address is set to. When you find it, adjust your "eth0" gateway IP to that IP address.

If the upgrade fails, some information may be found in /var/log/dist-upgrade. To reproduce the errors visibly: Make a copy of /etc/apt/sources.list and edit the file replacing old repositories with new ones. Do sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -s This will do an upgrade dry run and print out any errors. Broken update-dependencies can be ...

You can download the Linux driver from here. Just unzip and run sudo bash install.sh inside the uncompressed directory. It works OK for me under Debian Wheezy, I think it should work on Ubuntu also.

Adding a variable to /etc/environment did work for me. However I did have to reboot after changing /etc/environment for the change to take effect. Simply closing and re-opening the terminal window was not sufficient.

You don't even have to use SIGTERM. tail listens for SIGINT and SIGQUIT too. I'm not sure if there's any difference between signals (it's all specific to tail) but any of these would be better than SIGKILL. It's quite easy to test too: $ tail -f /dev/null > /dev/null & [1] 26599 $ kill -SIGINT $! [1]+ Interrupt tail -f /dev/null > ...

SIGTERM sends a signal to the command and will tell the command to stop itself. If there is a need to clean-up files due to the kill the command can do that. SIGKILL sends a signal to the init system. The command itself does not get even told it is going to get killed. So you can use both; but SIGTERM should be preferred (it is more graceful). Will ...

When you use the SSH client it get the private keys from the SSH Agent. This kind of information, your computer public key, or the public keys of server where you've connected are stored in: ~/youruser/.ssh/ # Same as /home/youruser/.ssh/ When you launch the SSH client, it uses the private key from the SSH Agent, without asking for the private key ...

From what I can tell is that you turned off your system, while it was upgrading from 12.04 to 14.04, that is never recommended! Even if you get Ubuntu to boot again, the rest of the system might still be broken due to an unfinished upgrade. My advice is, do a clean install. You don't know what exactly is broken. Start from a LiveCD, save all of your data ...

The 2 options I'd recommend for you are: Try LiveCD and reinstall the GRUB Try Memtest86+ to check for fails in your HardDisk/RAM If you insert your CD/USB with Ubuntu on it, and try ubuntu instead of installation, you'll be able to navigate and check the issues of the HardDisk, the most common issue on booting usually is because of the GRUB. So I ...

this took me a while but it payed off it was a mix of my own digging and answers above first make sure your /etc/default/grub and /usr/grub/default/grub are the same. then run gksu gedit /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober near the top are the two lines we want but to find them search for styke and change that line to hidden then search for a timeout line it should be ...

Well I see a few people checking this question out and I figured out how to do it. So I'll make a small beginner's guide to rsyslog.

I'm not sure what you're asking, but most everything in GNOME doesn't use gconf any more. They use dconf. Also, yes, you can't edit pairs or schemas in gconf-editor. It will likely never be fixed though, as GNOME has moved away from gconf and over to dconf. I'm not sure what you mena bout the schemas being unreadable. If you can see the schema in ...

From your edit, it looks like you have two instances of the openJDK installed. If you want them to match, you have two options: Uninstall the one you don't want. E.g. if you want open-jdk7 but not open-jdk6 do sudo apt-get remove --purge openjdk-6-* Update the alternatives for java using sudo update-alternatives --config java and pick the one you want.

I'm still new to Linux (using Mint, but I think this is pretty much the same). I tried this: sudo apt-get purge kde-full --auto-remove (I used kde-full to install it, replace that with whatever you used) It's much shorter and doesn't make you look up every single package involved.

If you're using ecryptfs (it's the standard way to encrypt home folders, so probably are) then when you changed your user password you lost automatic access to your encrypted home (as you discovered).

By "keep my files" are you referring to everything in your home folder? If you backed up / copied your home folder somewhere else, then you could do a (fresh) re-install from the live usb, and once it's up & running then create your user again (adduser or useradd) copy your home folder back and be up & running again. Or if your home folder was on a ...

Despite the names, Adobe Shockwave and Adobe Flash are two different programs/plugins. Adobe Shockwave isn't available for Linux, whereas Adobe Flash is available for Linux. You have both the NPAPI version of Flash (which all browsers except Chrome(ium) use) and the PPAPI version of Flash (which Chrome(ium) uses) installed.

The ampersand-backgrounding method didn't seem to work as expected. I switched to setsid instead and it seems to work. gnome-terminal --tab -t "MyPC" -e "sh -c 'setsid firefox;bash'" --tab -t "MYPC2" -e "sh -c 'ls;bash'" Also, you only need bash, not exec bash.
