Afterwards make it executable by running sudo chmod u+x /etc/pm/sleep.d/fglrx-fix Script: #!/bin/bash #Script ...

Parts 1-3 are suggesting Radeon HD 4670 Part 1 My answer comes 1 month later after the question but if you haven't cleared the issue meanwhile, maybe this helps. As long as the AMD Radeon HD 4000 Series are concerned, AMD isn't providing support beyond specific Kernel version (3.4) and Xserver version (1.12). They are considering this cards legacy. You ...

Well, in case others with the same issue come across this, the solution was to disable the application switcher in compiz, and enable the static application switcher. The shift switcher also works nicely. More info: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/971051 I noticed that if I used the gnome classic (no effects) desktop, a basic form of ...

If you don't use Chrome, ignore this answer. If you use Chrome, the problem doesn't come frome Flash "as it" but the PPAPI library used by Chrome and Adobe, developping together PepperFlash (/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so). You can desactivate it, so Chrome will use the NPAPI, like other navigators (you must have flashplugin : sudo ...

To debug more, I advise to change the boot options so that the boot is more verbose. If you edit (as root, with gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub) you can see a line somewhere with is similar to: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" remove "quiet" (or the two of them to have an old-style, no graphic, verbose boot) and save. Then you have to run sudo ...

I've had this problem on the last 3 or 4 versions of Ubuntu and always ended up going back to Windows. This time I was determined to find a fix! So after getting frustrated and more frustrated, I eventually came across some references in the crash report to ALSA and PulseAudio. I have a Lenovo L520, and it is always plugged into a Logitech Speaker Lapdesk ...

If it locks up completely, you can REISUB it, which is a safer alternative to just cold rebooting the computer. REISUB by: While holding Alt and the SysReq(Print Screen) keys, type R E I S U B.

You can access the terminal with Ctrl + Alt + F1 through F12. This is called a "tty" terminal. "tty" stands for "teletype". The keyboard shortcut will not get you to a terminal, but to a login prompt. Once you log in with your normal user name and password (which will not appear), you will then be taken to a bash prompt.

I had the same problem on one of my upgrades today. It's because the login manager isn't starting. I'm using xubuntu with lightdm. I couldn't figure out how to fix it so I ended up SSH into the box from another, but you could probably press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get into tty1 CLI Mode. Then I ran this: sudo apt-get install --reinstall xubuntu-desktop I'm ...

The freezing usually can occur due to HDD failing or/and a problem with graphics card driver. So first check the HDD for bad sectors. Open the Disks utility and check the S.M.A.R.T and see if disk is Healthy. Then you can install an additional driver for your graphics card (if any). This can be done from Ubuntu Software Center → Edit → Software ...

You will probably have set some incompatible setting combination(s). Gnome Tweak Tool can be used on Ubuntu, but is not exclusively for Ubuntu + Unity. That is why there is no "set to default" option, like you would expect from an application, dedicated to Ubuntu only. Removing the application would not undo the setting changes you made with it. Since you ...

Applications freezing and no Launcher could both be caused by trying to install Ubuntu on a computer that does not meet the minimal system requirements for it. Ubuntu publishes Release Notes for each official Ubuntu derivative that it releases, which can be easily found by searching for something like "Ubuntu 13.10 release notes" for your particular version. ...

You don't have enough memory to run (or install) Ubuntu. You hit the right answer with Lubuntu, but with so little RAM you will need to use the alternate (text-based) installer. The default one won't work. Lubuntu, in my experience, runs nicely with this memory as long as you don't try to browse five JavaScript intensive sites at the same time.

Seems like the problem is the RAM memory used in the installer. If you want to install Ubuntu first read this, because you have low RAM to use Unity (Desktop environment in Ubuntu): https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements Also, if you want to install an OS that can be installed with that specs (maybe Lubuntu as it defines in the ...
