i have a pretty similar issue: i get a short flickering when i hit the power button to unlock. but only in this two cases: * when automatic brighness adjust is on, and im in the dark. * when i turn brightness to minimum.. so in both cases it seems the brightness level is the faktor. have to check if android/other ubuntu versions show the same behaviour. ...

The problem was caused by some configurations file in /etc/openvpn. I don't know why the problem came only up after an upgrade to Ubuntu 15.04 as those files had been a long time before there. But actually, if you don't run an openvpn server or have some important openvpn configurations you can easily delete all those files with: sudo rm -R /etc/openvpn/* ...

I installed a disk caddy with a PATA/SATA interface, and had booting problems -- grub would freeze up when accessing the disk. The disk worked fine as a disk, but when present, grub would freeze when accessing it in any way, even just tab completion on the grub command line! My BIOS did not allow selecting which disk to have first in boot order, and the ...

When going through the interface for installing Ubuntu (after booting the setup form either a USB dirve or CD), you should be able to select "Install Ubuntu alongside Windows 8.1". You should be able to select the installation drive as well.

Is your external HDD set to bootable( has boot flag ) ? You can check it via command below as root(or use sudo): fdisk -l /dev/sdx Replace x with your HDD letter. Column Boot should be set for the linux root partition. If it is set to boot, check if grub is installed. You can install grub (on ubuntu) via command: sudo apt-get install grub-install ...

Unless the MBR is cleared, the drive behaves as bootable. You can do the following: Temporary fix: Change the boot order and remove USB drive from the first position in the list. Permanent fix: Create a new partition table on the disk using GParted. Open GParted. Select your USB drive from the menu on the top right. (Select the correct device or you may ...

This will be a shot in the dark. I have tested it on my system, but I don't have Arch Linux installed. But what I did, for the 10_linux file, which is the configuration file for grub detecting linux operating systems, in the /etc/grub.d folder, I added some lines to it. What it does is checks the ${initrd} variable and if it is the intel-ucode.img then it ...

You may find your answer here: https://github.com/lopaka/instructions/blob/master/ubuntu-14.10-install-asus-x205ta.md I am not sure how great of a Stack-appropriate "answer" this is (on my part), but I am wrestling with this exact problem with my x205t right now. And I think this might be our best bet. You apparently need to rewrite the GRUB loader ...

the dd command can pipe its output do several devices in one run through tee like discribed here: https://joshhead.wordpress.com/2011/08/04/multiple-output-files-with-dd-utility/ TLDR!: sudo su dd if=inputfileimage.bin | tee >(dd of=/dev/sdc) | dd of=/dev/sdh would write the file "inputfileimage.bin" to the devices sdc and sdh in a root console... ...

You need to boot from a LiveCD / USB. Once you are booted to it, you need to open a terminal window by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T. Once your terminal is open, type in the following to get a listing of your hard drive(s) in your system: sudo blkid You might see something like this: /dev/sda1: UUID="A0F0582EF0580CC2" TYPE="ntfs" /dev/sda2: ...

I faced the EXACT same problem when i tried to install a new kernel in my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The reason was that you cannot install a generic linux kernel from the tree directly that way. You need an ubuntu version of whatever version you want to install. Look at this post for reasons: Can I install Linux kernel in Ubuntu appart of the default one? So i ...

It looks like you manually installed kernel 3.19.0-15 to Xubuntu. Xubuntu 14.04.2 is shipped with 3.13 kernels, not like Ubuntu 14.04.2 as far as I know. Ubuntu kernel 3.19.0-15 has never been published in Ubuntu repositories and has issues. So you need to boot with some stable kernel using grub menu and remove this kernel image. If you need 3.19 so much ...

When you boot form a LiveUSB, you do not login with your name and password. You have access to your HDD, unless there are restrictions. But if you run sudo nautilus in terminal, file manager will start with root rights, and you will be able to do whatever you want.

Test this: Switch on your computer. Press and hold the Shift key, which will bring up the Grub menu. Select the line which starts with ---- Advanced options. Select the line ending with ---- recovery mode. In the menu with a number of options, select ---- Drop to root shell prompt. In the terminal, run the commands: mount -o remount,rw / mount --all ...

Solved: Resetted the BIOS by unplugging and removing battery and all got fixed somehow.

I'm assuming you have a seperate /boot partion. This happens over time as you upgrade your kernel. In my experience, if you get an error telling you that you have no space left while running a dist-upgrade you can run: sudo apt-get autoremove Then the system will remove the old kernel and install the new one. If you want to remove the kernels you are not ...

There was infact no such issue. I somehow missed to check the file-permissions of the .iso file. Set it to exe, and then was able to boot in RHEL via kvm.

Open a terminal and type: sudo nano /etc/grub.d/40_custom Add the following line: menuentry "Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda1)" { insmod part_msdos insmod ntfs set root='(hd0,msdos1)' chainloader +1 } by appropriately modifying the location of windows 7 in your computer. Then sudo update-grub

A couple of things to check: Is there enough space on the USB drive? Is the USB drive mounted? You may want to try reformatting the drive before you attempt running unetbootin beware that this will wipe the USB Drive!: sudo fdisk /dev/sdx (replace x with whatever the usb drive # is) Then type d then the ENTER Key This will delete the current ...

So, at first I was thinking it's most likely a problem with some BIOS startup settings, since that seems to be the most common problem in cases like mine, but as it turns out, that wasn't it. Now I found a solution myself, described below. I still don't know why it works, but here's the how... The problem seems to be that I initially created the bootable ...

The right-click pop-up is almost certainly copying the .iso file to disk as a file in a filesystem, instead of actually filling the CD with it AS the filesystem. Try using something like K3b to burn it as an ISO image instead.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install grub-customizer Then pick Ubuntu, with Linux 3.16.0-36-generic to be the default boot (since it works for you). After this go to the following file: sudo gedit /etc/default/grub Then change the grub timeout GRUB_TIMEOUT=0 Save and reboot.

In the end, the solution was to find out that there is another bug! When in the GRUB console I typed insmod xfs I got an erorr back that error back that said something like: insmod.xfs error file xfs.mod not found So the solution was to install Ubuntu and selecting the ext3 filesystem instead of xfs !! I hope this helps somebody

I am assuming you are booting a PC in BIOS mode. When running the Live CD/USB, choose "Try ubuntu" Then run gparted and: create a GPT partition table (Device > Create partition table) on your pendrive create an ESP, fat32, 512MB, with esp flag. create also a BIOS boot partition, unformatted, 32Mb, with bios_grub flag Then click on install Ubuntu to ...

I've noticed that if my Aquaris has low charge then it refuses to turn on, even though it clearly has enough to get as far as the charging status screen. The only reliable solution I've found is to wait a while for the phone to charge more (about five minutes on my charger) and then try again.

I had this same problem and latest update solved it, but before that I just tried to press power button while BQ logo was displayed - I tried holding it, pressing it repeatedly or pressing it one time once the BQ logo appeared. After few attempts the phone booted normally but I didn't find pattern that works every time.

It doesn't matter if you install windows 7 or 8 with ubuntu. Regarding Installation of Windows ( including reinstalling windows after crash) after Ubuntu, you can restore GRUB using Boot Repair.

As far as I know both Windows 8 and Windows 7 are same. If you re-install Windows they simply refuse to boot to Ubuntu (any Linux OS). If you haven't formatted the partition where you installed Ubuntu (any Linux OS) while installing Windows (7 or 8) then there is always hope. Install EasyBCD 2.2 and add entry for Ubuntu as GRUB 2 and leaving other fields as ...

It is likely the usb drive. Alot of usb drives now have "Windows 8 certification" which makes it impossible to boot a live distro. I would refer here to the faulty ones. You may also need to disable secure boot. Isn't microsoft the worst for messing all this up? Disabling quick boot might also help. Also, as another user said you may also need to go to the ...

I recommend not only separate boot and swap partitions but also a user partition. makes it easier to back up and recover. Boot partitions need to be first on the drive. I am uncertain how SSDs handle that. Ext 2 has more support for some maintenance, diagnostics and repair than ext4. Some say 1Gb for boot partition. You've probably been here already: ...

You can instruct Windows what to do when you hit the "Power Button". Your distro is sensing that Windows is hibernating, meaning that your user state is stored on the hard drive and is accessed at boot. To make sure it is not hibernating, go to the control panel, find the power settings, set it to power off, not hibernate, when you hit the off button. By ...

You might need to try booting manually into linux by opening the BIOS boot menu, probably F2 key right after startup (just press it repeatedly until you get that. Use a different key if that's not it). Once you're in linux, you will have to run sudo update-grub That should do it. You may also have to change the default boot device to the partition ...

Not allowed to comment yet so I'll leave this as an answer. I am also having this problem and it appears to be down to the nvidia drivers.

Download your BIOS update program from your computer manufacturers website. You can try installing it with Wine in ubuntu but likely will not work (worth a try though). Chances are your computer does not have a bios chip but rather loads the bios from a specific hard disk. Same as holding SHIFT key immediately after (or even before) power on. Using the ...

I did receive this "ACPI PCC probe failed; starting version 219" error as soon as I received the latest version of Ubuntu (15.04) with the generic kernel 3.19. ???.

It might be the USB drive. Some USB sticks don't work as liveUSB sticks. I've had some dodgy sticks in the past (especially Kingston ones). Try another USB stick.

As long as you do an In place Upgrade using the procedure suggested in the WIKI. You should be fine.

With Ubuntu 15.04. We have a systemd however upstart scripts should work as well. If you have upgraded and the SSH daemon is not starting automatically. Please do the below via a Terminal. sudo systemctl enable sshd After this the System will start ssh daemon (sshd) automatically at boot.
