If your webcam required the use of a third party driver, 16.04 requires the use of all drivers to be signed with a key. You can get around this by turning off secure boot in your BIOS. To check for a driver, go to terminal and type "dkms status". List any output here. If it says dkms not found, then there's no driver installed this way. You can also open "...

Wheeee! After a couple hours putzing around on the Internet, I found a solution that works for 7260/7265 with even newer firmware for 7265D devices. Per the official driver page: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi 7260 and 7265 will not be supported by the newest firmware versions: the last firmware that was released for these ...

That is actually a misprint from the ppa. All drivers listed as Nvidia* are proprietary drivers and are not opensource. Nouveau is the only open source driver available and all others are proprietary. Yes, there is an advantage.

You need to remove the custom dkms module and upgrade the kernel. Now Ubuntu kernels do not load 3rd party modules if Secure Boot is enabled. But the new the 4.4 kernel supports this adapter without any external modules. Connect to internet by wire and run in terminal sudo dkms remove btusb-iwlwifi-intel8260/1.7 -all sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-...

You can switch it back this way. Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and login into console. Run there two commands sudo aticonfig --px-igpu sudo reboot If you are using a computer with UEFI this problem could be caused by Secure Boot option. Disable it in BIOS and try again.

While the scanner worked with simple-scan worked out of the box for Ubuntu 14.04, it's again broken in 16.04. scanimage -L identifies the scanner successfully, simple-scan also lists the scanner, but scanning fails with a connection error. If you're affected you can try to use the solution described here and use the experimental libsane and libsane-common ...

I suggest that you try blacklisting the internal device to see if it helps: sudo -i echo "blacklist iwlwifi" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf modprobe -r iwlwifi exit rfkill list all It may take a reboot.

You can install a driver, but you will need to downgrade the graphical stack to support the driver. Run in terminal sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-input-all You will be asked to agree to remove lots of packages and install lots too. You will need to agree with that. Reboot. If the procedure was OK, then proceed. You will need to install ...

Finally, I wasn't able to make xcalib work. Instead, I installed CompizConfig Settings Manager as instructed in the solution here and started using the shortcuts in CompizConfig Settings Manager -> Accesibility -> Negative. If you cannot see the Negative option, you have to install compiz-plugins: sudo apt-get install compiz-plugins

try this tape trick to mask a pin only after - if the problem still persists after trying the other solutions such as unblock - sudo rfkill unblock wifi sudo rfkill unblock all command. In my laptop the same problem had occurred and I myself applied the trick and since then my WiFi works like charm.

This adapter is not supported by amdgpu. It is supported by radeon as you see in the output. It is extremely unlikely that older GPUs will be ever supported by amdgpu. radeon driver will be supported and I do not see what is the problem.

You have both the native driver rtl8xxxu and the compiled driver 8712au loaded. I suspect that they conflict. Until we find otherwise, I suspect that the native driver will work better. Let's blacklist 8723au: sudo -i echo "blacklist 8723au" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf exit Reboot. Does the interface scan and see networks? sudo iwlist ...

I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to ask here. Your problem might be that you need to install some things (I think they're drivers, not really sure), try sudo apt-get install -y dkms build-essential linux-headers-generic linux-headers-$(uname -r) on the ubuntu guest to install these. (This worked for me) Also, make sure you have the right version of ...

To test Unity 8, it requires Mir support, which is currently only partially implemented in the proprietary Nvidia drivers and at this time not enough to run Unity 8 / Mir properly.

You do not need to do anything. Both adaters are supported by the same proprietary drivers. Make sure that the latest proprietary driver is installed and replace the card. In Ubuntu 16.04 it is nvidia-361.

My issue was that I was a,) not blacklisting nouveau correctly (probably not rebooting after blacklisting. I should read the docs better.) In addition, the main culprit was that I did not set --no-opengl-libs. Since my machine has a switchable graphics card, having the runfile install them is apparently screwy. IDK why though.

SOLVED. After much researching, i noticed 2 main problems: 1- There was a problem with my integrated graphics card i915 drivers, and i found out that i either had to patch my kernel with an unnofficial patch, or install my virtual machine on UEFI mode, and simulate a bios startup. For this i had to instal ovmf. apt-get install ovmf 2- The windows nvidia ...

You do not need any backports for Ubuntu 14.04 because there is a new kernel available for this release. Run in terminal sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-xenial and new Intel wireless adapters will work.

if you're stuck offline, but can access 3rd-party internet, you can always download your driver as a .run file from the Nvidia website. you'll have to stop lightdm to install, which isn't hard: use Ctrl + Alt + F1 and login to the terminal environment sudo service lightdm stop cd *directory of .run file* *drivername*.run after following the setup ...

I found the solution to my problem thanks to some help from the Ubuntu facebook group. Basically i had to use the command sudo apt-get autoremove This is to remove packages installed by other packages which are no longer needed. This fixed every problem that I was having.

So, a few months later, the accepted answer works kinda-ok, but wifi connections sometimes go in and out and are often slow as compared to the same connection on the same computer in the same spot but using a Windows install, so I did a bit more digging with some of my own linux experience and found a chart from intel with some driver downloads that work ...

If you are using ubuntu server (or minimal via net-install) without X server and any desktop environment then you shouldn't install any graphics drivers (neither the opensource nor the proprietary) as they have xserver as dependency (see this http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/xserver-xorg-video-nouveau for the nouveau driver). The virtual terminal (console) ...

You don't need a "driver" if you have the properly prepared PCL file. You just copy that file to the USB(?) port the printer is attached.

Short answer. Go to System Settings -> Software & Updates. Make sure that main, universe, multiverse and restricted repositories are checked.

I tried all the above steps with no success (well I managed to update the kernel, but that didn't solve the issue for me) - what did fix the issue for me was entering the bios (button at the front, left of the power button with the bent arrow on it) and not only setting the boot option to "Legacy" mode, but also "prefered option" (try legacy first) in the ...

Intel 8260 adapter is not supported by the 3.19 Linux kernel. You installed Ubuntu 14.04.3, not 14.04.4 with the 4.2 kernel.

It sounds like using lsusb shows that the drives are being detected, but you're not seeing them mounted on the desktop, or in Nautilus, correct?

If the data on these two drives is replaceable via a backup, or the data is not ...
