Not a precise answer to your question, but I see you mention you now use a gnuplot script that analyses /var/log/ntp/loopstats. I do the same, and below is the one I use myself. If anyone is doing something better, I'd be curious too. #! /usr/bin/gnuplot # Remember to check you have these lines in /etc/ntp.conf and that ntpd is actually running: # ...

The latest version of PHP in Ubuntu 12.04 is currently 5.3.10-1. Given that you have 5.5.20-1, you clearly are using a third party PHP package, rather than the Ubuntu one. With Ubuntu you can choose either to run the version supplied with Ubuntu, or run a third party package. You seem to be doing the latter. Probably the best choice of PPA for PHP is ...

Since I also had problems with Wicd + NetworkManager, it had to be decided which one will disappear from the OS, as it seems both interfaces do a sloppy job when it comes to deal with dependencies and side effects. First I decided to remove Wicd, and that should match your question (then I tried Wicd without NM, but that's another story...). Normally, if ...

If modinfo returns nothing, then this relatively new device isn't covered by the relatively old kernel version included in 12.04. If you upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS or 14.10, it will be included by default. If you wish to remain with 12.04, it will be extremely difficult to compile the driver without any internet connection. Please tell me which you prefer ...

You should tray a new version callflow-20141023.tar.bz2 from Sourceforge. Some bug has been removed. I made some test with SIP pcap file and it seems to work (at least with this type of messages). One think - it is important to set up $FILTER . For example export $FILTER=sip slawek@kodeina:~/src$ callflow Register.pcap tshark started ** (process:20338): ...

You don't need windows to overwrite it; use the USB key you already have, or the one you're going to use to re-install from; the obvious thing to do is to download Xubuntu, create the new USB drive, and do as others have suggested; if you really want to clear the drive first, you could just open a terminal, sudo -i to become root, & use fdisk to remove ...

According to this Ubuntu documentation, the default system shell in Ubuntu is Dash, instead of Bash, while the default login shell is Bash. The output of ls -al /bin/sh shows you whether /bin/sh is a symlink of Dash (most probable), or Bash. In my case it is Bash: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Apr 8 2014 /bin/sh -> bash Dash will not be able to interpret echo ...

Is this even an Ubuntu question? From my standpoint as an IT security person this is what it looks like to me: It looks like somewhere on your network you have something intercepting your connection attempts. That would be some kind of filter or blocking/filtering mechanism and is intercepting your traffic and initiating a block. It's likely that your ...

It's important that you just don't follow instructions blindly and also that you make decisions that are appropriate for you.

This worked on my Sony Vaio T13: open your terminal (Ctrl+Alt+t)and type sudo acpi_listen. Now this terminal will "listen" to the keyboard. Hit the shortcut for brightness down and brightness up, in this case: Fn+F4 and Fn+F5. You should see how this is interpreted on terminal. Typically something like: sony/hotkey SNC 00000001 00000011 ...

I do not have 'the answer', but I hope I can help with some tips for locating the root cause. Question back: could this be related to a recent update/upgrade?

I recently had a similar problem.

I realize this is a super old post, but I found the REAL answer for this model. It's not Ubuntu, it's the Aspire.

I had the same symptom and I managed this way. Is your newly installed "fd-deu-eng" showing up when you type? dict -I If you 'apt-get remove' the successfully installed "dict-freedict-hun-eng", does 'dict -I' reflect the change? If not, then the online version of dictd may be interfering your local generic instance of dictd. Try ps aux | grep dictd ...

Sorry, no. You can not change the graphics card in a laptop, Z750 or otherwise (generally speaking*), as it is soldered to the motherboard, and not a replaceable card, as in a PC.

I was struggling with the same issues. Chromium has playing flash content flawlessly, but Chrome was lagging so hard it was unusable.

I was wondering why can't I just do the following: "sudo apt-get update vim" ? The correct way of running it is sudo apt-get update.
