Only thing that worked for me was to disable the lock screen. Which in my case is fine, since the laptop is stationary. However this may be of little relief to those people who actually carry their laptop around

The reason we can not run a 64-bit guest in Virtual Box even when run on a 64-bit host is that 64-bit guests don't make use of software virtualization. They depend on hardware virtualization to work: VirtualBox's 64-bit guest support (added with version 2.0) and multiprocessing (SMP, added with version 3.0) both require hardware virtualization to be ...

Your problem is very similar to the issues I had with my Atheros bluetooth. Here is what I did to fix echo "blacklist ath3k" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath3k.conf And then I edited /etc/rc.local so it would load ath3k later in the boot process gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local And add modprobe ath3k above the last line that needs to be exit 0 Then save, exit ...

My own preference for a lightweight distro is antiX (current version is 13.2, 14 is in beta). It has a choice of several lightweight GUI desktops (IceWM, Fluxbox, JWM, and WMII) and you can install others (if you have the resources, you can even use KDE), fits on a CD (not a DVD), installs as easily as Ubuntu, and I currently run it on a 300 MHz, 288 MiB ...

I had a problem similar to this. I downloaded the firmware from here: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi And copied the .ucode file into /lib/firmware.

A thread on the Intel 7260 cb at Ubuntu 14.04 reports no wireless card with Intel Wireless 7260 reported success with the 3.18-rc1 kernel. I'd love to know if this works with the Asus Q302, which looks like a nice machine otherwise, except for the lack of an ethernet jack.... But the stories of frequent 7260 disconnects from JaSauders are worrisome ...
