Will upgrading to "Ubuntu 14.04 'Trusty Tahr'" affect the softwares I mentioned above? Yes, you get newer versions. In general it means better version with bug fixes and new options. Sometimes something gets removed though that is being used by a person but that happens not too often. For PHP and anything important I would suggest to search for the ...

First, you my be misunderstanding the purpose of apt-fast. It's not something for slow network connections, it's something for fast network connections. If you have a slow connection to the Internet, you are not reaching the bottleneck of the repository and will not benefit by pulling from more than one repository simultaneously. If you have a fast ...

GIMP was removed for a variety of reasons, including that it took a lot of space (as it ceased being included by default in 10.04, back when an Ubuntu ISO was still under 700 MB). In addition, it was also found that most users did not need most of its features and that its interface was too complex for simple tasks. It was thought that most people wanted ...

If you turn off the "Access your Google Calendar" option under Evolution Data Server the account will stay authorised after you restart your computer. Admittedly this solution isn't ideal especially if you use google calendar but it at least partly fixes the problem and removes the need to reauthorised on every restart.

Unity 2D looks drab. Try the GNOME 2 desktop replacement MATE. MATE is a lightweight desktop environment, lighter than XFCE and a little heavier than LXDE. There is a full tutorial about how to install the MATE desktop environment in Ubuntu 14.04 in this answer. To see how MATE looks in Ubuntu 14.10 visit the Ubuntu MATE screenshot tour.

The upgrade itself from 12.04 to 14.04.1 won't change anything that's in your home folder. However, when you boot into 14.04.1, changes might be made by the programs in that release. Therefore, any folders (or lack thereof) in your home directory won't impact the upgrade. The most likely reason that your .gnupg folder isn't getting backed up by the backup ...

Since you have no OS, it should boot right away as long as you created the USB correctly and your computer supports boot from USB (most do these days). If it doesn't work right away, go to your BIOS settings by pressing the appropriate key at startup (this varies from machine to machine, usually one of the function keys, sometimes the boot screen will tell ...

The awk: 1: unexpected character '.' should be a good indication for what's gone wrong here. Something has pooped over your command line start-up scripts and because it's breaking out, it's not adding your path correctly. I'd look for any instance of awk in ~/.bashrc but you'll need to call things with their full paths: /bin/grep awk /home/$USER/.bashrc ...

From Redhat's SSSD Guide: Setting a default domain name allows users to log in with only their username, not specifying the domain name (which would be required for users outside the primary domain). So, under the [sssd] section of the configuration file, set the field default_domain_suffix to be blank. Keep in mind that if there is a user on the local ...

apt-get autoremove is an easy way to remove old kernels, it also updates the grub entries. I would try autoremove, reboot, check if the proper boot entries are available. If the boot entry is still not available, try updating grub update-grub. Both commands require sudo powers

Well, the error message is pretty clear, right? fatal error: opencv2/highgui/highgui.hpp: No such file or directory You'll have to install the development package of opencv-highgui (libopencv-highgui-dev) in order to install the required opencv2/highgui/highgui.hpp header file.

Unfortunately, all software (including Live USB creators) contains bugs. I assume this is an issue with Pendrivelinux (which I experienced to be very buggy.) Give UNetBootin a chance. It is the best and safest Live USB creator I ever used, any I tried lots of them... (And don't be afraid of UNetBootin's boot menu, as some people reported to me...)

My guess would be that the account you're changing to doesn't allow logins. If you have access from the nuri account, list the users in /etc/passwd and look for the login shell that deneme2 is using. grep ^deneme2: /etc/passwd It should end with something like /bin/bash. I'm guessing it says /bin/false or something similar. If you have admin access you ...

Your disk probably contains partitions that do not mount automatically... By checking the content of dmesg | less ... you may look for what kind of action the addition of the drive actually triggers -> by this you will see if it is detected. lsblk lists all known disks and partitions with the related /dev/xxx visible - see if you can locate it in ...

You can use the minimal installation CD. This is an Ubuntu installer CD image that is small enough to fit on a regular CD. It uses a text-based installer similar to Debian's installation CDs, and it fetches most of the packages over the internet which is why the installer CD image can be so small. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD ...

In Dash, applications are represented by .desktop files. These files are located in either /usr/share/applications or ~/.local/share/applications. What you see in Dash is not the filename of these .desktop files, but the (application-) name that is defined in the Name= line, inside the file. When you have duplicate appearences of the same application in ...

The Dell XPS 15-9530 works just fine on Ubuntu 14.04 out of the box. The multitouch screen however does NOT (as of 13.10) and if you're using a Nvidia card with optimus you'll probably want to install bumblebee but that's up to you. but if, as you say, you have no onboard GFX you'll be able to use it without any problems at all. If you do happen to have ...
