Kubuntu is an operating system not a windows executable file. In order to run Kubuntu, you need to burn the ISO to a CD, DVD or flash drive and boot from that device. Kubuntu ISO is a Live CD so you can boot your computer to it and not harm or affect your Windows system. It will allow you to use Kubuntu until you get used to it, or when you are ...

Which display manager are you using? I had a similar problem when I switched to GDM while testing something. Switching back to SDDM resolved the issue. Apparently there's something in GDM's configuration which prevents vt switching.

I managed to configure the "left edge swipe" and "right edge swipe" gestures using xbindkeys; this can probably apply also to the two finger swipes, but I did not bother with those as I find them difficult to perform anyway. This is my .xbindkeysrc #Right edge swipe (Send Alt+F2) "xte 'keydown Alt_L' 'key F2' 'keyup Alt_L'" ...

I founded this workaround - not sure if it works As many of you know, Steam on GNU/Linux is coming with some bundled libraries in case the system does not have them, and some of the bundled libraries or drivers are outdated. As a workaround, just delete the files Steam says are broken; this will force Steam to use the system's libs and drivers. ...

Ubuntu has additional QML library: qt-components-ubuntu. There were some dependencies on Unity long time ago. But it should be ok now. I think that it is not very hard to run SDK even on something like Mac OS (don't know about emulators...). No idea. There is no significant difference between desktop and mobile. For mobile there is just a cross-compiler and ...

I found this workaround to get it running, from the command line: KDE_FULL_SESSION= XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP= qtcreator In my case, I installed from the download tool from the Qt website, so I had to modify the command to point to my Qt Creator binary. Mine installed to ...

The Above works in OpenSuSE 13.2 as well and appears to be the best answer for Plasma except there are .kde and .kde4 and .kde5 spaces for 13.2 and I should imagine others there could be the same. So 4. becomes: rm -rf .kde4/share/config/plasma-* As always I would recommend copying the three files found this way to an ../old directory first. Also I ...

It turns out that I had caused the issue when I symlinked kcmshell4 to kcmshell5 as a workaround for a bug in another program. I restored kcmshell4, and now when I launch bluedevil-monolithic, all of the menu options work. Bluetooth config is still not showing up in the panel or system settings, but that is a topic for another question.

You may just delete the Windows XP partition from the Windows 7 installer so it makes System Reserved. Then install Windows 7 in the freed space. After that you may use Boot-Repair CD to fix GRUB or EasyBCD to add Ubuntu to the Windows bootloader.

It will work just fine if you install Windows 7 over the XP install, just make sure to select the correct hard drive during installation. NOTE: You will need to run a grub reparation tool like boot-repair. EDIT: Here's the specific command you need to run to fix the bootloader: grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

It looks like a bug and affects me too. Switching to SDDM works for me. Switching from lightdm to SDDM is as follows: Run the following and select sddm, and then do a restart: sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm Then select sddm.

I'm also having the same problem though with another wacom model (CTL480/S), try opening the Konsole (terminal) and typing: xsetwacom list devices and see if the system recognizes the "stylus", the "eraser" and the "pad". If yes then I'm assuming that installing wacom drivers is not the case, but finding why there's not a proper gui to configure the ...

As Mirto already pointed out this was a bug in versions <= 1.0.26 To fix this manually you can run sudo sed -e 's/\(self.list_files_view_model.removeColumns( 3, 2 )\)/#\1/g' -i /usr/share/backintime/kde4/app.py Disclaimer: I'm member of BIT-Dev Team

The suggestion of @oldfred was the key. The missing bios_grub partition was the problem and I came across the excellent explanation here: ''EFI boot partition'' and ''biosgrub'' partition given by @RodSmith which also helped. So thanks for your help guys.
