It should be possible to boot the external drive automatically only when the external drive is connected. Just install windows to the external drive and set the external drive or USB (if it connects via USB port) as the first bootloader device in the BIOS settings. When the drive is not connected, the next bootloader device (internal drive) will ...

It's very probably a hardware issue: You've probably only got 2 cheap on-board video adapters that can run a max of 1 screen each therefore you can only connect one monitor to one of the display ports for each card... :-( If you need 4 screens, you need to add 2 more cheap video adapters, or one more expensive one (one that can drive 2 monitors) Just to be ...

I ran into this problem with writing onto an old drive that had been written as a live linux disk. Solution if you just want to erase the disk /dev/sdX: sudo parted /dev/sdX o (agree to delete partitions) w (agree to write partition table) And then you have a perfectly blank drive. All that remains is to create a partition if you want to use ...

That's also a key problem I've got with my Lenovo L540 touchpad. CaptSaltyJack's suggestion is a step in the right direction, but it does not solve the problem completely, as the actual issue is not entirely related to the noise cancellation level. Regarding proposed changes to ~/.xinputrc I would suggest to follow im-config's manual, so: If you wish to ...

Turns out, ~/.cache/deja-dup wasn't writable. But now I get 'Could not restore ‘~/.cache/deja-dup/metadata’: File not found in backup'..., see my new post: "Backup Failed": Could not restore ‘~/.cache/deja-dup/metadata’: File not found in backup

You should have used the UI to do that, but now that you are in this situation, a sudo apt-get remove --purge deja-dup and sudo apt-get install deja-dup should fully reset deja-dup... However, now that you're uninstalling deja-dup anyway, you might have a look at "back-in-time" as well... ;-)

If you are compiling/installing a package by yourself (without apt-get/dpkg) then apt-get/dpkg will not be able to locate the package. You have to delete all its components manually. From the directory of "libcap" package do sudo make uninstall to uninstall the package.

For some reason, you have proxy settings configured. Assuming you don't need them, open System Settings, go to the Network section, set Proxy settings to None and click Apply system wide:

I have a similar issue; it turns out this only happens when it's plugged into an A/C power line. The predominate hypothesis on the internet is that noise from the power line isn't properly filtered out, and it can be worked-around by plugging it into a surge protector (I just verified this myself, as I'm typing this on my Series 9 and just plugged into a ...

For me, the problem was solved by doing two things: (1, possibly not needed?) as suggested above, in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf I have: Browsing Off BrowseLocalProtocols none (2) and in /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf : BrowseProtocols none After service cups-browsed restart and service cups restart I don't have any printers visible except those which I have ...

Doing "apt-get upgrade" just before a "apt-get dist-upgrade" is a waste of time. If the installation is not the latest (13.04 when 13.10 is already available) doing a dist-upgrade will replace 13.04 with 13.10 and thus make the 13.04 upgrade unnecessary.

After many hours of searching $ sudo apt-get purge pango-graphite worked for me. This was broken on a dist upgrade to 14.10, and since I spend 90+% of my time in mate-terminal or gnome-terminal this was truly driving me crazy. Thanks!
