My favorite is still tv-viewer. (download link)I have been using it ever since I switched to Linux/Ubuntu. It was the first and only TV application that worked for me out of the box. Although your Zebronics card is not specifically mentioned, there is a good chance it will work fine, or as the website mentions: Basically all devices that are supported by ...

Of course it has a live CD. How did you install it? The normal way is to download an iso image and burn a CD/DVD of it or take it onto an USB stick. But to access your data, you can use any other Linux-based live system, too.

I have had screen edges that sometimes stops working, don't know whether your issue is related.

It seems that there are bluetooth dongles which forge the Broadcom identifier even though they don't 100% follow the Bluetooth spec. Apparently my device, which cost $2 on ebay including shipping, is one of those. According to the bug linked, the Ubuntu devs know about this and are even including workarounds for these devices. However, the real solution is ...

Seems to me I've run into that problem with a bad USB write from a good file -- unetbootin sometimes changes an ISO in a way that prevents it from booting successfully; dd makes a faithful copy that, in my experience, always works. It's also possible for a damaged partition to cause this kind of failure; recreating the partition table on the flash drive ...

Maybe reinstalling KDE from the tty would help, but I'm not sure about this. You would have to press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to leave your desktop (tty7) and enter a plain full-screen terminal (tty1). This should allow you to login by entering your username and pw. Then you can try running sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop --reinstall. After that, Ctrl+Alt+F7 will ...

I managed to temporarily fix the issue by changing the system language from American English to British English as suggested above. I did it via the KDE System Settings > Locale > Languages dialog.

In ubuntu, you can reserve space for your panels with xprop, using the _NET_WM_STRUT_PARTIAL property (the reserved space is called strut). The idea is to get the ID of your panel window with xwininfo, and feed it together with the desired coordinates into xprop -set.

The standard Ubuntu NVidia drivers generate some problems on slightly older and slightly newer NVidia hardware.

You can use the cpulimit program to restrict virtuoso-t to a specific percentage of cpu. You'll probably need to install it from a repository, as I do not think it is installed by default. Works best if you put it into a shell script, which is run when KDE starts - something like: cpulimit -b -e virtuoso-t -l 10 (where 10 indicates program is restricted ...

I was recently bitten by this, too, and it appears to be a bug in imwheel that has to do with @Exclude.
