It is a very long standing and known problem of the website (Google Docs), that goes across browsers and OSs. They know it, but form the look of it I'd say that they are not working on it.

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.

HDMI 1.4 doesn't support 4K/UHD, but HDMI 2.0 does. Since you have a 4K TV, your TV should have a HDMI 2.0 port (typically 4K TVs have one of these, but they may all be HDMI 2.0). Does your PC happen to have DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, or USB Type-C connectors? If so, you could get an adapter to go from that to HDMI 2.0. Having said that, it may or ...

Wikipedia to the rescue... "The Pentium II brand refers to Intel's sixth-generation microarchitecture ("P6")..." — source The P6 microarchitecture is sometimes referred to as i686. The Linux kernel and Ubuntu userspace are compiled against the i686 architecture, so in that respect, your CPU is compatible. However, you have a different ...

The accepted answer is incomplete. According to the bug comments, the kidle_inject processes are spawned to throttle processor and protect it from further overheating. Before "fixing" the bug, make sure your fan is clean and works correctly. I had this problem and found out that the vent was full of dust. After cleaning and reboot no kidle_inject was ...

I can't get gsettings to change the brightness on my laptop running Ubuntu 16.06, but I can change the brightness by storing a value in /sys/class/backlight/device-name/brightness where device-name is one of the video devices listed in /sys/class/backlight. In each of these directories there is a max_brightness file. To write to these files you will need to ...

Yes, X can use multiple drivers. Yours is a very similar setup as what I have. I have an NVIDIA 9800 GT with two monitors connected and an 2nd generation intel card with a single monitor. I don't see any problems with your xorg.conf. I suspect that you will need to create an xorg.conf if only to tell X to use both nvidia and intel drivers. My xorg.conf ...

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 ...

Run the following commands to properly recognize your sensors: sudo apt-get install lm-sensors sudo sensors-detect Answer yes to all the prompts. Run ...

If you have an AMD GPU in your laptop then this problem can't be solved until the release of Ubuntu 16.04.1 on July 21st. Since Ubuntu 16.04 doesn't support the propriety AMD driver "fglrx". And this is a GPU driver problem. On the other hand, if you have an nVidia GPU inside. Just go to System Settings -> Software and Updates -> Additional Drivers. ...

I wanted to report that I never fixed this issue on the particular install of 16.04 that I was running. Luckily, I had 16.04 installed on another computer and used systemback to make a copy and install it on a test partition. The wifi just "worked" under that new install, so I have to infer that there was some conflict or error in my prior install. I ...

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.

Yes, the sudo pavucontrol failed after a few days, why? Don't know. What I do that has been working for me, at least for now, is "pkill pulseaudio" which resets (respawns?) pavucontrol and all works as expected. Hope this works longer than the sudo fix. Sorry, just trying to be helpful. Best, Papa Smuff

I just bought one of these used a few weeks ago and have run into a lot of trouble with performance. Make certain you are not using a 90W power supply as the ThinkPad will throttle itself substantially. A 135W power supply was standard and ought to avail the unit's full power to you. Mine came with a 90W supply and I noticed a dramatic increase in ...

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.

I have had a similar problem with both pulseaudio and lost cursor after unlock. The cursor problem still exists in Xubuntu 16.02 but also lost pulseaudio as you describe. My temporary fix which worked for me was to run "pavucontrol" as root (gksudo) in a terminal. It seems that pavucontrol does not "see" the password from the "lockout" input (don't know the ...
