To answer your initial question ("Is any one else experiencing this"), the answer is Yes - me. Still searching for a fix myself (your second question), I will edit my answer if I ever find one. Sorry I'm not yet able to comment others' answers, but the workaround provided so far ('sudo ubuntu-drivers devices' + 'sudo apt-get install') could be complemented ...

There is another problem with Kubuntu, not only 16.04 with the plasma desktop on iMac running in Virtualbox. Using 3D acceleration in Virtualbox enabled will cause the toolbar of K Desktop becoming invisible. So there is a problem with the Virtualbox video drivers for Virtualbox OS X. Disabling 3D acceleration will solve this problem, but screen drawing is ...

I could not find anything in the documentation, but found that if a Konqueror window is open when I log off from Ubuntu then when I next launch Konqueror, it tells me that the last time it ran it crashed and offers to restore all the tabs.

I could solved. I follow the advice from this answer: http://askubuntu.com/a/367329/483417 What I did was: sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-video-all sudo do-release-upgrade -m desktop I waited for the upgrade ends and restarted the computer. After that, Kubuntu started with no problems. The graphics were configured too. I think that is because I have a ...

Same problem. I held the shift key down during boot and got to a menu where I chose "advanced options," then selected "upstart." At least I can do my office work now. Unknown how to make systemd, the new type of booting up, function.

Actually, I had the same problem and it is related to the cached content. Just go down to the console with Ctrl-Alt-F1, log in, and: ~$ cd ~/.cache ~/.cache$ rm -rf *plasma* *kde* exit - change back to the UI with: Alt-F7 (Usually) and log in through sddm again. Should work now. The first login will take longer than usual - as it needs to rebuild all the ...

In case anyone else runs into this, this is what I did (though I imagine there must be a better way): I got a spare monitor and connected it to the computer (after turning it off), along with the original monitor. (Fortunately my video card had multiple plugs.) On rebooting, I used nvidia-settings to move the new monitor's position to below the other one. ...

After researching this topic, it seems that the problem was related to my clipboard manager itself. My clipboard manager was not running at all. Make sure to set your clipboard manager to autorun with your OS. In Kubuntu, the recommended clipboard manager is "Klipper".

This is probably due to changes & regressions introduced in the 4.4.0 kernel such as this with Ubuntu 16.04, but I do have a workaround for 4.4.0: I first added my swap partition to grub, rebooted, and there was no change. Next I installed the Ubuntu kernel packages with TuxOnIce stable and the option to hibernate appeared, but that failed. I later I ...

Note - This message only aims at proprietary nvidia drivers users. I'm not sure if your laptops has one, but it may help for other people that were in the same situation. : I just encountered a similar issue after updating my Kubuntu 16.04 setup (it already worked fine with it). Messing around KDE packages didn't help. However I noticed that Plasma was ...

Further investigation revealed that in kernel 4.4, i915 driver has a regression...

The problem seems to be that the Dutch translations (kde-l10n-nl) of KDE conflict with plasma-desktop. Forcing the reinstallation of plasma-desktop in a TTY fixed the issue. You don't have to reinstall kubuntu-desktop for this to work: apt-get install --reinstall plasma-desktop apt-get -f install

As KDE 5 seems to be just frontend for PulseAudio, you can use direct access to PulseAudio with pactl command. You will have to experiment a little bit to find a correct settings for you exact setup, but I would recommend excellent Arch Linux wiki on Pulse Audio, the Pulse Audio Configuration and Examples. After figuring the correct commands, create a ...

Some packages that are needed for KDE to run are missing. Enter a TTY (Ctrl + Alt + F1) and log in there. Run sudo apt-get install --reinstall kubutu-desktop kde-* || sudo apt-get install -f and KDE should start. You'll have to be connected to the internet for this to work.

I found a workaround on the BinaryDriverHowto page, under the Installation without X header. You can run sudo ubuntu-drivers devices to see the detected drivers, and use apt to install them yourself. Here's the example as listed on that page: sudo ubuntu-drivers devices == /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0 == vendor : NVIDIA ...

There is a ticket #14102 for VirtualBox regarding this Problem. There seems to be a problem with 3D acceleration since Kubuntu 15.04. Turning it off helped most times and worked for me. Hopefully VBox will fix it some time so we can use 3D acceleration again.

One explanation I can think of is that you haven't configured the input methods. Open the Input Method tool from the menus (or launch it from a terminal window with the im-config command). Select IBus (for ibus-unikey) or Fcitx (for fcitx-unikey). Reboot. This will start the applicable input method framework (IBus or Fcitx) automatically, and also set ...

I don't know if this is related or not, but 16.04 (all flavors) drops a lot of support for AMD cards. "There’s good and bad news for AMD graphics users. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS will support AMD’s new AMDGPU graphics driver architecture, which should help close the gap with Nvidia’s exceptional Linux drivers. Unfortunately, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS no longer supports the ...
