Note the comments about using a more current version of the ISO, but your problem may be that you have a separate /home partition. Assuming your "newinstall" is a user home directory, the partition starts with /newinstall,,, not /home in the line set isofile="/newinstall/kubuntu-14.10-desktop-amd64.iso" loopback loop (hd1,6)$isofile The other potential ...

If it doesn't work immediately, restart you're computer, it should fix any tearing you may have :) ...

Just a suggestion but try setting the default program to open exes to wine windows program loader, and then click on it. If you're using the terminal, it might make orbiter lag, although I don't know why it would do that.

I resolved the issue by deallocating the space for logs. I was under the impression that I had already done that, but I hadn't. Sorry for the mess!

Sometimes, kinks are introduced when upgrading like that (straight from one version to another, in this case trusty (14.04) to utopic (14.10)). What I would suggest as a permanent solution is: Backup whatever data you want/need to keep. Obtain the ISO of Ubuntu Utopic (14.10) and do a fresh install via a CD or bootable USB. OPTIONAL: Zero (wipe out your ...

After several failed attempts to install Dropbox on the Plasma 5 GUI, I decided to install plain Kubuntu with Plasma 4 and install Dropbox first. Now I am going to try to install Plasma 5 on top of this to see if it works. But a short answer is that the problem probably lies with Dropbox and Plasma 5. EDIT: If you install Dropbox on Plasma 4, the icon ...

This seems to be an issue with the python3-software-properties package or some of its configuration files, that might be providing inaccurate information to apt-get.

I don't see any difference except color theme. However, all changes you describe come from either widget theme or window manager effects. Go to app launcher -> System Settings. There are two icons, Application Appearance and Desktop Effects, that encompass the whole topic. Keep an eye on those "Customize" buttons that tend to be unnoticable. For example, ...

Try it again but remove this part name="Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse" If it's not that then you probably have the wrong OUI. I believe it's the first half of your bluetooth mouse's address.

A commentator above suggested a pretty good workaround: Go to Tools / Options / LibreOffice / View. Set Mouse Positioning to "Dialog center". Restart LibreOffice. The find dialogue still has the system window border around it but clicking Ctrl + F puts focus in the text field so one can type immediately.

I just downloaded the latest kernel Release Candidate and did a grep --recursive --ignore-case Moelissa and the results are: zilch, nada, nothing, rien du tout, nichts, nikske, ничего, नथिंग!

In above case it's a bug in Kubuntu 14.10, so in this particular case the below procedure will not work!
