This issue has been answered at: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2190818 What probably happened is for some reason when you did 'sudo startx' the file owner for the '~/Xauthority' and '~/.ICEauthority' hidden files changed to root. These files are required as being writable by your login screen program - the display manager - under your user. So ...

I am unable to upgrade my Kubuntu desktop. But I discovered that there is a log file in /var/log/dist-upgrade/main.log which gives more information on what the problem was. In my case, it says " 2015-04-20 16:53:19,408 DEBUG blacklist expr '^postgresql-.*[0-9]\.[0-9].*' matches 'postgresql-9.3-postgis-2.1' 2015-04-20 16:53:19,408 DEBUG The package ...

Good news! I turns out I just had to go into Local Apps and use Terminal to purge Jupiter. Removing Jupiter also removed the Joli Os desktop theme. After I booted up the computer again, it brought me back to the Elementary Os login screen.

QML The KDE plasmoids are using qml scripts, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QML . The plasmoid scripts are at: /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/... ie the digital clock scripts are at: /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.digitalclock/... You could edit those but any update will overwrite your changes. The KDE TechBase has tutorial - Plasma5 QML2 ...

Instead of using the GUI, you can use sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. I recommend that you use the US sources or Main server sources in your software settings. You can open a terminal by pressing CTRL+ALT+T on your keyboard.

Your secondary issue seems like a boot device order problem. Have you tried to change boot device order on your bios/uefi configuration? Depending on your motherboard you may be able to access bios settings by pressing F12 or F8 while booting. Set USB befor HDD on boot order to boot from the Lubuntu live USB.

Try this: Put the line GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=auto just below the line #GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480 in the file /etc/default/grub. I had the same problem and this fix completely solved it. (Source)

Found this. It fixed the problem. I'm not exactly sure what it does though... sudo sed -i -e 's/#GRUB_TERMINAL/GRUB_TERMINAL/g' /etc/default/grub sudo update-grub

If you do not wish to use bumblebee on your computer and you're alright with logging out and logging in again every time you want to switch GPUs, then you should install nvidia-prime: sudo apt-get install nvidia-prime nvidia-331-updates sudo reboot now sudo prime-select nvidia This will start the desktop using the NVIDIA GPU. Otherwise, if you want to ...

I don't know of a whitelist, but based on my experience in the past with similar types of situations, if you can't find a whitelist, I would copy all of your config files to a different directory, such as old_config. Then, when you start an application and it isn't configured the way you like, copy the file for just that application from old_config to the ...

Yes, signed with the same key as the other Ubuntu releases. E.g. Download both the checksum files and the detached signature: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/releases/14.04.2/release/SHA256SUMS http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/releases/14.04.2/release/SHA256SUMS.gpg Then verify it against the preinstalled APT keyring which should have this key: ⟫ ...

I had the problem with a fresh installation of kubuntu 14.10: the kubuntu screen froze during shutdown. My solution was: 1. Changed this line in file /etc/default/grub to look like this: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash init=/lib/systemd/systemd" 2. After that, run "sudo update-grub" in a terminal Now the system shuts down again...hope this ...

Run this in a Terminal to edit it: sudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list If you didn't add any other source whatsoever before, you can just paste in the default /etc/sources.list for Utopic (make sure to replace us with bg at the start of each link): deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ utopic main universe restricted multiverse deb-src ...

Simple answer, open a terminal and run this command: sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list Now you can correct or remove the faulty line. Then Ctrl+O and Ctrl+X to save and exit. Then run this command to update the sources. sudo apt-get update

Well the best way to do this is to make a 1:1 backup of the whole drive and save it. You could use simply dd, but to be honest there is a much better way to achieve this. Simply use clonezilla, there is a live CD available you can use to copy one harddrive to another and even a restore option. Looking into this tool is definetly worth it. All you need is ...

What I did was go into the network manager settings by clicking the wifi/network icon in the taskbar > Settings icon, and then from the networks screen that appears I right-clicked my connection, clicked edit, and then under the "General configuration" tab, ticked the "All users may connect to this network" check box.

Try This before shaking ur computers Nervous system!! To get KDE to display GTK apps well, you really need the ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde4 theming that kubuntu-default-settings adds. Installing this will likely change your bootup logo to Kubuntu's though, so expect that. (You will obviously need kcm-gtk as well.) You get all those packages when you install Kubuntu, ...

Normally, this might just be a problem of the original font file. You can re-download the font family from this direct link: http://font.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu-font-family-0.80.zip and then from there just re-install the entire font family. This shouldn't take more than 2 minutes combined. If this still doesn't work, leave a message in the comments

They are located in folders in /usr/share/icons, named according to the theme, irrespective of the desktop environment: $ ls -d /usr/share/icons/*/cursors /usr/share/icons/Adwaita/cursors /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black/cursors /usr/share/icons/DMZ-White/cursors /usr/share/icons/handhelds/cursors /usr/share/icons/redglass/cursors ...

Nothing hard to fix this problem. There might be some upgrades failed to install or failed on half way progress. So you might want to upgrade your KDE or install it again to fix this problem. It happened to me when I used to upgrade font packages with kde file manager.

You can find the nvidia driver nvidia-common-updates as .deb (debian install package) HERE, choose 64 or 32 bit, put on a USB double click in KUbuntu to install. Same for the WIFI driver, from research I believe this to be the one from the repo or "additional drivers" for your USB, go HERE, choose your Ubuntu version from the bottom, go down to "Binary ...

Based on the information available in your question this can be a very broad range of things. I am going to list the ones that come to mind! You have selected a custom system font file that does not adhere to standards. Solution: revert to the default system font or find another without bugs. The font file is corrupt. This is not likely since you say it ...

There is a not a really good way to "cut the fat" off of windows. Since it's not open source, you can't really change anything. If I were you, it would allocate about 60-80GBs to windows, since it is a much larger intall, and have the rest of the space for Kubuntu. As far as the activation key goes, that is only good on one computer (more specifically, it ...

It is impossible to turn off activities. You are already using activities if you are using KDE Plasma. Your desktop, or virtual desktops, are an activity. By adding a new activity, you are creating another group of virtual desktops, just like the one you are now using. The global settings, like how many desktops there are in a group, carry over from one ...

Possibly try Ubuntu Restricted Extras if you haven't already, It contains a few fonts and True-type, True-Type will make text much clearer fixing the text that looks like it was typed on a 1995 Compaq!

I was able to find out what this application is. I wrote a blog post about it: http://swoogan.blogspot.ca/2015/04/ssh-passphrase-chaos.html The application is gcr-prompter. I removed it from my machine with: $ sudo aptitude purge gcr $ sudo apt-get autoremove $ rm -rf .local/share/keyrings

Really strange question... Kubuntu does NOT have such directory unless your username is "ubuntu" (or "kubuntu")!

The best I have been able to accomplish is removing them from the panel so that I don't get the notion to play with them anymore. I like the idea, but every time I try to set them up differently, I end up losing most or all of my settings from my original desktop. I'm sure it's my fault, but it should be harder to screw things up that badly. Just add more ...

I solved the problem by using antimicro. This package maps joystick buttons to keyboard keys which I then use to control visualboy.

Uid 1000 is you. Uid 0 is root. Take a loot at output of ls -l /var/tmp . There's some folders that you have ownership of, and some that root owns. If you're not owner of a file and permissions are drwx------, you can't open it, simple as that. When you called kate with root privileges, kate needed to access folders that are owned by you, but the program was ...

Xorg-edgers not always guarantee what you expect. You might have to remove it.

On the far-right of the panel, there is a button with a bubble-shaped icon on it. If you hover over it, a little box reading "Panel Tool Box" will appear. Click the button to bring up the toolbox.

Pinning won't work for you since it will prevent from upgrading kernels altogether. Look into /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove and /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove-kernels. These files contain lists of packages which should be purged automatically. The second file is maintained by the script /etc/kernel/postinst.d/apt-auto-removal To solve your problem, ...
