I fixed this by uninstalling network manager and using wicd-gtk instead.

Nothing on here or any other posts worked for me until I followed stepheny's advice on: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2322942&p=13481566

None of the above suggestions work. I get no driver info from "lshw -c video": configuration: latency=0 And Sysinfo crashes when I click on system.Also, there is no available driver visible within software updates. And var/log/Xorg has no entry for a graphic driver. I suspect that recent changes to the kernel have "broken" the nomodeset setting fix in ...

I have this printer and it works flawlessly with ubuntu linux , i am using the HP Color LaserJet Pro M252 Postscript (recommended) driver. You will need some disk space for spooling to print.

I'm going to talk about the unknown chipset nouveau error first. nouveau is a set of open source drivers for nvidia. Back when I installed my ubuntu on a dual boot I was using a GTX 970 and I received the same error. The problem is that there are currently no open source drivers for your graphics card so Ubuntu is unable to display anything to your screen ...

There was no real solution to this issue, I was required to use a DVI and Display Port adapter on the same graphic card to extend the two monitors.

Since you don't use the AMD card, you can just disable it in the BIOS settings. You also said kernel 4.6 seems to be better with power management, which is a good thing for others who may not have a video card option in their BIOS settings.

I had the same problem. I have solved it by install intel driver like below (i think it's a part of the solution ;-) ) AND chose the GLX video output in VLC setting.

So what I did is to switch from "Switchable graphics" to "Use UMA graphics" in Lenovo BIOS. This disables RADEON, and makes the system use only the power-saving GPU, and the battery life has increased, the system works fine.

If you fear that your drivers will cause problems during your upgrade, I would consider: Removing the nvidia proprietary drivers. Upgrading your distro. Installing the nvidia proprietary drivers. If this yet again fails, you can get into your installation through recovery or using nomodeset during your bootup and removing the nvidia drivers and look for ...

You should first download your respective driver from : http://www.geforce.com/drivers Then, refer to this answer to proceed : Ubuntu 14.04 install nVidia driver Should work for 16.04 as well.

I temporarily replaced the contents of /etc/lsb-release with: DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu DISTRIB_RELEASE=15.10 DISTRIB_CODENAME=wily DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 15.10" In this way "Graphics Installer 1.4.0 for Ubuntu* 15.10, 32-bit" was installed. Before reboot I restored the original contents of /etc/lsb-release. Drivers work fine.

Lenovo Thinkpad has Intel wireless device 7260. This is not compatible with kernel version earlier than 3.18.*. To solve the problem please update the kernel to the most updated kernel version supported by your ubuntu version. you can find the instruction to update the kernel here. Then update the 'additional Driver' from 'system settings'. Thats all.

While I am not running dual-boot, I did install Ubuntu 16.04lts on my new Lenovo Ideapad Y700 (first thing I did after making a disk image), and wifi worked out of the box. I was a little surprised since I did research and expected to have to use a work-around as above. In fact, the only thing that didn't work is multi-touch on the touch-screen, but the ...

A Simple Firmware update and also a BIOS update for your Product might solve your problem.Try this Link: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DellBIOS#Dell_OpenManage_Ubuntu_Repository - Good Luck!! :)

The best answer depends on how flexible you can be. If you're a gamer and rely on the AMD card, then perhaps you should hold off. If you have hybrid graphics (you also have Intel onboard graphics) then you could still run Ubuntu just fine, but again, you're limited in gaming to what the Intel can do. I for one, have a hybrid graphics laptop which has both ...

I had the same issue in my HP Pavilion g6-2248ca notebook.The overheating is basically due to the linux kernal in Ubuntu 15.04 is not able to adopt the hybrid graphics in HP PCs properly(I think this is probably a bug).Furthermore I resolved the issue by switching to Ubuntu 14.04.You should try to switch Ubuntu 14.04.If switching does not help just go back ...

Linux 4.6 now treats BYD touchpads as touchpads, see patch. However it's not supported by synaptics yet as of xserver-xorg-input-synaptics-1.8.2 (current version in xenial), so synclient and other GUI tools (e.g. the KDE kcm_touchpad system settings module) cannot configure the touchpad behavior yet. The issue is tracked as launchpad #1424293.

This solution worked for me while upgraded from 15.10 to 16.04 at Intel integrated graphics system. https://allanbogh.com/2016/01/05/ubuntu-16-04-installing-the-intel-graphics-drivers-using-the-intel-graphics-installer-for-linux/

Proprietary Radeon drivers are not supported in 16.04. Forcing an install, or keeping them installed during an upgrade will cause issues, if you can even get them to install. For now, 16.04 is using opensource AMD Drivers, but, they're not very good and not reliable. Performance is also a huge issue. Unfortunately for those of us using the AMD graphics, ...

I solved the same problem by putting the following two lines in the file $HOME/.bashrc export PATH=/usr/local/cuda/bin:/usr/local/cuda/lib64:$PATH export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/cuda/lib64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH This will set some environment variables in order to run and write CUDA enabled programs.

In 16.04 the AMD graphics card driver is AMDGPU. The list of supported cards is here. This says your card is fully supported. You are using the AMDGPU driver already. If the result of lshw -c video is Radeon you are using AMDGPU. The alternative proprietary driver is fglrx. It will be faster than AMDGPU (at least at the time of writing) so you may want to ...

I used this guide https://linuxgamecast.com/2016/02/installing-and-testing-vulkan-on-ubuntu/ and it worked. Only difference I had was to launch Ubuntu in recovery mode and install driver in root shell mode.

So I should just click on what's there already? No installing PPA or any of that? I'll try that. I swear that I tried this already on an older install and ran into the loop login problem.

There's no Official AMD drivers/support for AMD cards at this time. Although I'm still unsure as to why it's not being detected. This could cause issues in disabling it if it's not being detected. Either way, this is how I disabled it on my Ubuntu 16.04; 1) Edit the file /etc/default/grub. Add radeon.runpm=0 to the end of the line with ...

A little more googling led me to this - Easily modify dependencies of a .deb file - a bash script allowing you to vi edit the control file. About five minutes work and I had the driver installed.

Are you able to remove the current drivers at all during recovery? sudo apt-get remove nvidia* Then check whether you can get in again. You could also try booting up by adding "nomodeset" right after quiet-splash in the boot options in grub.

Do the default graphics drivers not work? the Ubuntu graphics PPA could possibly break your system and you are allowed to keep both halves.

Does this happen at all when you disable the option to save your session upon Shutdown? Maybe play around with the hibernation/sleep options a little. It sounds like it might be linked to this particular problem.

Just a note, when you install 16.04, 7265D works for me without issues. I cam across this question when trying to get it updated to -21.ucode [ 142.519645] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Detected Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 7265, REV=0x210 modinfo iwlwifi | grep 7265D firmware: iwlwifi-7265D-13.ucode

If you use optimus graphics, I suppose it depends on whether the display port is going through your intel graphics or on your nvidia graphics. Does your external monitor work when you switch to the intel profile in nvidia-settings? if so, then the display port most probably runs through your intel graphics. I am not sure whether bumblebee and primus ...

In this case I'd suggest that you use the following command on the machine without internet: apt-get --print-uris --yes install build-essential | grep ^\' | cut -d\' -f2 >downloads.list This will produce an output file in the current directory called downloads.list containing the download URL for all the packages apt needs to install the ...

Found the culprit. Had these 2 files: /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-352_hybrid.conf /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-346_hybrid.conf Both of them had blacklist nouveau and alias nouveau off which was preventing the nouveau driver from loading. With these 2 removed I was able to see all outputs and configure all 3 monitors.

I am not 100% sure this will fix your issue, but you should check out this ubuntu documentation regarding hybrid graphics and how to use switcheroo to activate the different cards. It solved my issue when trying to use my hybrid ati Sony laptop that kept losing the Intel drivers and not the ati. Hope it helps!

Check (vi/nano) /etc/network/interfaces I willing to bet you only have lo interface. If so run dmesg | grep "eth0" it may tell you that eth0 has been changed to new name, then you will have to add the new interface name to /etc/network/interfaces. If above does not work try ifconfig to see if there is a new name. hope this helps!!

You might want to enable the graphics-drivers ppa on your system that contains the NVIDIA drivers: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt update Then you should have listings all the way up to 367.18 (Open Source) drivers. Seems to be working great for me. Hope this helps!
