On ubuntu you can run this as follows: sudo /usr/bin/update-manager If this doesn't work, find the actual command by following what Pavak Paul said: xprop | awk '($1=="_NET_WM_PID(CARDINAL)") {print $3}' | xargs ps h -o cmd Then click on running instance of update manager.

You don't need to worry that's normal grub loader interface, as far as for your login screen flash it is because Ubuntu machine is loading and reading files and blinks like flash, during that flash you sometimes see some commands running in background and same happens during shutdown. In the sum of all you don't worry that's all normal.

Maybe this has been solved for you already, but I just ran into the same problem (Ubuntu 14.04, yEd & Unity). I have no idea what causes the problem, but the following workaround worked for me: Select the running yEd using the icon in Unity's sidebar. Hit Alt+Space. This should show the window menu, but for me it came up empty. Hit the up or down arrow ...

I did it years ago using xpadder, but I think it is just for Windows. You could try qjoypad or joy2key . Both of these are available in the Software Center.

There is a trick. Under Windows, if your files are in list or detail view, the right click always gives you the option New File, New folder. Under Ubuntu, if the directory is in List view, every place you click a file or folder is selected and Ubuntu only shows the options for manipulation for the highlighted file. You have to click the small icon view, then ...

This being caused by a virus is very unlikely. I have the same problem, also Ubuntu 14.04 on Thinkpad T450s, and the following workaround that someone suggested on Launchpad works for me, although it has a noticeable negative impact on graphics performance: sudo mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ sudo -H gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf Add the ...

Sorry for bringing up an old question, but the accepted answer explains how to add items to Bookmarks, not Places. Sadly, you can't add to the Places list. The items in Places are defined in .config/user-dirs.dirs. Mine looks like this: # This file is written by xdg-user-dirs-update # If you want to change or add directories, just edit the line you're # ...

Can you just use system-monitor (pre-installed), its closer to Windows task manager but can start/stop services Or open a terminal and run top another I found is Boot-Up Manager (BUM) It looks simple, may suit your needs sudo apt-get install bum I know it says boot up but can stop start services too. There is also jobs-admin, says it is like bum ...

Look at dpkg -l | grep obex if there aren't any results go into the software center and search for obex, there should be a result that mentions bluetooth in the description. I just installed xubuntu-desktop on my 14.04 install and had the same failures you had until I installed that obex package from the software center Here is the result from dpkg -l | ...

Yes, but you have to run another x server. As I recall, you can't do this with the standard login managers (lightdm, gdm), because they're designed on the assumption that only once instance of them will be running. However, I've done it with wdm, although it's a bit clunky. You probably want to look into running your second server manually via startx.

I don't think it is possible because you can't install Xorg on it. If you could, I would do the following. 1) enable automatic logging in and boot straight to command line 2) gut (keep important stuff though) the /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc file and add the following: exec java -jar /path/to/jar.jar 3) add in the rc.local to execute startx on boot This ...

This doesn't exactly answer the question, but it is another approach to the issue. A couple of versions of Kubuntu ago, I couldn't figure out how to turn this off either. Since I was kind of tired of screensavers anyway, I just turned the screen saving to start after an hour when power is plugged into my notebook (so it wouldn't come on while watching ...
