I found out why the screen turns black when I login on my personal account. It appears I have accidentally pushed a button that toggles between monitors/beamers when connected. When nothing is connected to the laptop the build-in screen still turns off. This is done by pressing Fn+F8. This is applicable on the Asus R500V series My thanks to the people who ...

There are many possible causes for this problem. And thus, there are many solutions, some of which might work for someone else but not you. That said, give this a try: Open up tty1 on the logon screen by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 Login at the prompt. Then run these commands: sudo rm .Xauthority sudo shutdown -r now

I've seen multiple people reporting odd and serious problems after installing katoolin or "Kali tools" in Ubuntu. Problems such as boot/login issues, or even Ubuntu now identifying itself in the terminal as being Kali Linux. In general it's a bad idea to "mix and match" operating system components unless you know exactly what you're doing. I would recommend ...

This can easily be accomplished by removing every Desktop Environment, then rebooting to test what the actual cause of the second boot falling back is. Please note that you may not have some of these desktops installed, but please use all commands in order to purge remnants of possible failed installs: Remove Cinnamon Stable sudo apt-get install ppa-purge ...

The driver is attempting to initialize VCE on a card that does not support it. The message is totally harmless - just ignore it. sudo apt purge libgtk2.0-0:amd64 sudo apt install libgtk2.0-0:amd64 The above command should solve the issue with the VCE issue. AMD catalyst is no longer supported as of 16.04

I know this is 2 years old, but I found a solution to this problem. You have to prevent your computer from even trying to load the radeon drivers. cd /lib/modules/3.13.0-24-generic/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon mv radeon.ko radeon.ko.bak Note: this was on 14.04 Funny coincidence though, my laptop's also a DV6 6121tx. The 6770M served me well through 4 ...

AMD GPUs generally work fine with the open source drivers. I'm currently using an AMD R9 Nano on 16.04 with no problems. However, I am not doing any work that requires OpenCL 2.0, nor have any apps or games which require OpenGL > 4.1. AMD has released a beta proprietary driver for Vulkan, if you require that. If you require OpenCL 2.0 or OpenGL > 4.1, and ...

No. There's currently no fglrx or because the latest Ubuntu release dropped amd's propietary drivers support. Also, if you have an APU (Accelerated Processor Unit), those AMD's apus with Turbocore you must stay away from installing Ubuntu 16.04. The actual drivers don't support boost processor states so your proc's performance will be limited to its common ...

Find the nvidia management app. Type nvidia in the dash to find it. There you can choose which profile you want to be applied, weather performance mode (nvidia drivers will used) eco mode (intel drivers will be used)

The problem is that in Ubuntu 16.04 with UEFI and SecureBoot enabled unsigned kernel modules do not load. In your case nvidia module is not loaded. The module is not signed. That should be fixed as a bug. Disable SecureBoot and the problem should be fixed.

Thank you Mr. IRC Man. I installed Bumblebee, and it now works except for the brightness control (for some reason nvidia-xconfig wasn't installed).

Wired connection is the best method as no further configurations are required. However, should the wired connection is not available, here are another Ask Ubuntu thread on connecting to wireless network.

Use wired connection. Connect ethernet cable to your computer's ethernet port. Now you will be automatically connected to the internet.

The issue is gone with Linux 4.6

Try this first: Go to settings -> software updates -> additional drivers. Wait while Ubuntu searches for compatible drivers. If NVIDIA 361.45.11 is available then select it and click the Apply Changes button. If it is not available, use the newest compatible NVIDIA driver that is listed. Alternatively, try this: Use the steps shown on the website below ...

On the screen you are displaying select the topmost button.Allow a few seconds for the driver to be downloaded and installed. Reboot.

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 ...

I worked around the same issues by chainloading GRUB2 from rEFInd: Remove grub-efi and install grub-pc and gdisk. Using gdisk, create a hybrid MBR ("recovery and transformation options" -> "make hybrid mbr"). When prompted to set the bootable flag of your Linux partition, select Y. Install GRUB2 into the hybrid MBR: grub-install --force /dev/sdX Now ...

In ubuntu 16.04, if "Software & Updates" --> "Additional Drivers", is started from menu or Unity launcher, choosing a proprietary driver doesn't work. Upon selecting a new driver and clicking apply changes, progress bar moves forward for sometime, then goes back and the previous driver is selected again. It looks like the issue is that Software & ...

Some news. I updated the kernel to 4.4.13. Now I don't have error messages is dmesg. Added radeon.dpm=1 radeon.modeset=1 to /etc/default/grub file (not sure if everything is needed). sudo update-grub and reboot Although I still cannot switch between the cards with DDIS, but I can run specific programs with the dedicated AMD, using DRI_PRIME=1 ...

I had that recently too. I needed to install the NVIDIA graphics driver to fix that (and a whole lot of other problems).

Not so satisfying solution: Suddenly, a big number of the issues were automatically solved by an update: the titles font in titlebars and the plugins font (like time and date, wifi options, etc) are back to normal font size. In the terminal (konsole), the cursor (and font) are back to normal. In kate (text editor), the spacing and fonts have been set back ...

A friend was able to solve it for me! The solution that he showed me was to (after removing all nvidia packages as before) $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa $ sudo apt-get install nvidia-364 then download the .run CUDA installer (for me it was cuda_7.5.18_linux.run) from Nvidia and be careful to choose "no" when asked whether you want to ...

That page you linked to seems to be completely wrong... As pointed out by rancho, fotowall is not in xenial repositories as the developers stopped working on it. Nontheless, you can still install it as a .deb package built for 16.04 from this launchpad page. First get the dependencies: sudo apt install libqt4-network libqt4-opengl libqt4-svg libqt4-xml ...

I guess you haven't installed an NVIDIA driver so far. You can easily install them via the Additional Driver tab in Software & Updates. The dialog might look similar to this:

The reason may be because fotowall till now is supported only upto Wily Werewolf. See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fotowall I guess you are using Xenial Xerus

I am also getting this issue with Intel integrated graphics on my Dell XPS 13 after upgrading to 16.04 LTS. Let's see if we can fix this together. Can you copy-pasta the output of the following terminal commands: sudo su *password for super user* lshw -c video Tell me what you get and if it's similar to my trouble maybe my solution attempt will work for ...

As the others said, fglrx is no longer present with Ubuntu 16.04. The radeon driver with the Mesa part should be more than enough to handle your card. But there really seems to be some error on your system, as Mesa isn't using the proper one for your card. You could try reinstalling and reconfiguring xorg. Maybe try Live mode and see if it is the same there.

Wow, that sounds pretty bad. It sounds almost like you are in limited graphics mode or something. (I'm not suggesting you are.) Use this Firefox extension to get the mobile versions of websites. Mobile versions are typically much more lightweight. If you're a Chrome user, use this. There are also lots of other alternatives that do the same. Also, use ...

VIA graphic cards are really weird. I guess your trouble has something to do with the graphic part. Try to replace the VIA card with a Radeon or a nVidia. Even a super old one could do better than VIA. Or LXDE/Lubuntu is too much for your laptop. Try a micro linux (Puppy, Slax, DamnSmallLinux, etc). Firefox is the T-Rex of all browsers. Don't use that on old ...

O.k. to fix this (I had the same troubles this morning) you have two ways: 1. The clean way proposed to me by the launchpad team per e-mail: To work around this issue, you may first switch to a text console by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1, then stop your display manager using sudo systemctl stop <displaymanager>, where is lightdm, gdm, sddm, or whichever ...

The proprietary driver fglrx is no longer supported by amd and you can't use it in ubuntu 16.04 (due to xorg and kernel versions). The alternative is the amdgpu opensource driver which your system will use it automatically if your gpu supported it. Since it doesn't seem to support it you only have the radeon opensource driver. If you need fglrx then yes, the ...

I would try in that order: Check your raw internet speed: download some big file (~10MB or more) using wget/curl. If this is not what you expect, check your connection to your router (Wifi can be slow if there is a lot of channel crossover). Check your swap usage, when you use the browser, a system with more that 5% swap gets slow See if disabling ...

In YouTube you can reduce quality from the gear icon in its user interface. You could also try lowering display resolution in Monitor Settings.

This is definitely a graphics card issue. "Nouveau" is the open-source nvidia driver. Check your GPU fan and cooling. Remove dust.

Running nvidia and an intel card requires you to take advantage of nVidia optimus, which might be on that card. (I don't know for sure) If you're installed off of stock, you'll run nouveau and need to fix a few things. As a sidenote - I've had tremendous difficulty with 16.04 and nvidia cards - which is disappointing since the graphics drivers ppa for the ...

This thread may be helpful to you: How to use lm-sensors? Reading up on some of these sensor apps, some can help you control the fan.

I would recommend pulling out your fan first of all. I have fixed numerous computers that had junk in the fan or the heatsink, especially if it is on the floor. After that, if you can replicate it I would run top and watch what is using the CPU the most, leading up to a shutdown.


1

Seems like heat sink on top of CPU is either not functioning well or thermal paste on top of CPU and under the heat sink fan needs refill. Hope it solves it.

Add the graphics drivers ppa and try the different nvidia drivers till you find the one that works. When I had that setup it was nvidia-358

Try this for a change : How can I disable ATI discrete graphic GPU at startup in Ubuntu 14.04 without BIOS?. Some possible solution at page bottom. In particular, try to pass radeon.runpm=0 to the kernel instead of radeon.modeset=0 .

Most of the open source Radeon driver is part of the Linux kernel, so you need to update that in order to get the latest version. On Ubuntu, you can use the the update manager to do so, although the Ubuntu repositories will not always have the latest version, so you will need to add an additional repository. If you want the very latest version, you'll need ...

I figured this out from another thread. After you've booted, press Ctrl+Alt+F1, and login using your credentials.

at the moment Unity, Cinnamon, GNOME 3, KDE and LXQt are using graphic acceleration and MATE, Xfce and LXDE does not (by default). beside them there are much desktop-environments/window-manager which are mostly less resource hungry than the named one, but most of them won't be comfortable (for beginners). so i named only DEs which are easily to get on ubuntu,...
