It sounds like a bug described at https://bugs.launchpad.net/nvidia/+bug/1401434 A workaround may be to downgrade the nvidia driver 331.113 to 331.38. This helped me: How to downgrade packages on Ubuntu?

There are 2 in the repositories for specific soune systems: Alsa: sudo apt-get install libasound2-plugin-equal LV2: sudo apt-get install eq10q For pulse you are bound to be needing a PPA. Link to some PPA's (in case you change your mind ;) ): Is there any Sound enhancers/equalizer? System-wide equalizer for Ubuntu 13.10

Does that mean anybody with physical access to my machine could reset the password and read the encrypted contents of my home folder? No, home encryption is linked to that password so if I stole your computer and changed the user password, I wouldn't be able to easily (more on that later) decrypt the data. That said, access to recovery mode means ...

I've looked up the model of your notebook and it would appear that if it is as originally sold, it may have either the 1TB hard drive or a 128gb SSD. The symptoms you describe suggest a dying hard drive, which is consistent with very thin portable computers. Hard drives are delicate machines under the best of circumstances, and so the thinner and denser ...

The manpage (man 5 crontab) says: The entire command portion of the line, up to a newline or % character, will be executed by /bin/sh or by the shell specified in the SHELL variable of the crontab file. Percent-signs (%) in the command, unless escaped with backslash (), will be changed into newline characters, and all data after the ...

If the translation into a language is not complete, especially if it's not complete with respect to the GUIs of the most important applications, selecting that language as the display language will result in a mix of the language in question and English.

i've done some research at mozilla and adobe and tests with both recent LTS-versions (14.04 and 12.04) and i'm pretty sure it is just a numbering problem of the flash-plugin! to make a long story short: if you open in firefox "tools" - "add-ons" - "plugins" respectively look at the mozilla check and you've got version 11,2,202,425 (notice the commas!), you ...

Now that 14.10 has been released, there is an easier and better way to get 3.16 on Ubuntu 14.04: sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-utopic This package will always depend on the latest 3.16 image available. (This method may not have been ready at the time of this article.)

There are some questions on Mozilla Support that suggest the RSS Icon plugin can cause this behavior. Starting in Safe Mode can confirm that the problem is caused by a plugin, and then you can proceed to disable plugins to narrow down the culprit.

You need to make the .run file executable. This can be achieved using chmod. chmod +x filename.run The above command gives executable rights to filename.run In your case - chmod +x eagle-lin-7.2.0.run Now, you can execute it using either ./eagle-lin-7.2.0.run or sh eagle-lin-7.2.0.run

Such device names are not persistent, udev makes no guarantees that they will be the same. The Arch Wiki says: Because udev loads all modules asynchronously, they are initialized in a different order. This can result in devices randomly switching names. A udev rule can be added to use static device names. You should use labels or UUIDs instead. ...

About Ubuntu only... If it really is full system disk encryption (dm-crypt/LUKS/cryptsetup style) then there is no quick or easy way to remove the encryption. Maybe start up & decrypt, copy unencrypted info to new disks as a new "system", then run the new system only, but that's about the same as reinstalling, and harder than just using a live cd/usb to ...

To check the filesystem itself, you fsck it. This requires it to be unmounted, so you either need to boot from the live cd, or you can run sudo touch /forcefsck and reboot and it will be checked at boot time. To check the integrity of installed applications/files, you can install the debsums package and run it and it will verify the md5sums of all files ...

The Standalone Flash Player for Windows can be used with Wine without issue, and actually is more efficient for Flash applications. Unfortunately, VLC does not provide the intractability with interactive SWF files. I have written a test result for this on the AppDB for Wine, here. Note that this is on a Trusty system with the Wine PPA. Simply download ...

I wonder if it is not the installation of bcmwl-kernel-source that is the problem, but loading the resultant module. First, see if it is inadvertently blacklisted: gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Use nano or kate or leafpad if you don't have the text editor gedit. If the line 'blacklist wl' is present, remove it. Proofread carefully, save and ...

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.

Looks like you are using UEFI booting and GPT partitioons (the newer way). So you can ignore the message about the missing MBR. I suggest running gparted and checking if your /dev/sda2 partition has the boot flag. For some reason, that seems like a common problem. I've answered a similar question previously.
