I recently installed Ubuntu 16.04 on a 701 with 1GB RAM. I used the mini iso installer, added Xfce, PostgreSQL, Midori, emacs, git-all, musescore, abiword, swi-prolog, a few other things. I tend to remove /usr/share/docs/* and /var/apt/cache/archives/* as I go since I either already know what the tools I need do, or I have docs on another system, and I don'...

This appears to be a known bug in xubuntu 16.04, see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xfce4-settings/+bug/1575123 There have been workarounds posted on http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/2529958.

I've installed Ubuntu on an EEE 1015PX with no major hurdles. Where the USB drive won't show in boot device selection: Confirm the drive is bootable on another computer Read the computer's manual, or look through the BIOS settings, for any info about "boot from USB" Nothing specific, just don't expect the thing to be fast, since it's a 7-year old ...

This is a very vague question and it doesn't seem that your pc knowledge is what most would consider knowledgeable but I'll try. Assuming you have a 64 bit processor and not an older 32 bit processor. Go to this web page http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop And under 16.04LTS click the download link. Once this file has downloaded you will need to burn ...

I've just finished loading Ubuntu onto a Dell fx160 thin client that has the SiS 771/617 video adapter as standard. I originally loaded 16.04 and it acted like a dog, you could see the interlacing and the whole system was slooow. Looking through Xorg.0.log I noticed that the Sis driver native in Xorg wasn't rated for the 771/617, and the only driver I could ...

First thing to do it to uninstall the backports cd backports-20150731 sudo make uninstall Then we try a module parameter echo "options asus-nb-wmi wapf=4" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/asus-nb-wmi.conf Reboot and see if wireless is still blocked, if it is still blocked the FN combo should clear the block

I made brightness control work. It's not working as good as it was on ubuntu 15.10 before upgrade to 16.04, but it's something My grub now is: GRUB_DEFAULT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true GRUB_TIMEOUT=10 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi_osi=! acpi_backlight=native ...

You have an Asus K75VM laptop which has an Intel H76 chipset. The mobile version of this chipset has no fan control outputs so you do not have the necessary hardware for software fan control under any operating system. Your fan speed is controlled by your BIOS. It sounds like it is working as intended as 50 degrees Celsius is a normal temperature for a ...

I have the same problem. If you add the kernel parameter acpi_osi= (and nothing after the = ) my case fans stop running at maximum speed and its work fine.
