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, ...

I rather liked the simplicity of the following remove: apt-get remove kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data Credit to craigevil on the Debian Forums. (http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=102884) The thing here is that, by focusing on the two packages on which virtually all of KDE is built, the rest of KDE gets uninstalled too, as they depend on the ...

1) With the current Plasma design it is intended that the Toolbox is not easily removable because Plasma has a high configurability and the user always should have the possibility to get things back. 2) Still, the non-removable toolbox is a splinter in many user's eyes. So there is an ongoing discussion of how to let the user easily remove the toolbox ...

For me, adding export TERM=xterm to /etc/profile was the only thing that solved the problem. Actually, the error gave us a hint: No value for $TERM

The best solution for this (in my case, as all the volumes in alsamixer were to the maximum) was using Veromix. First install python script engine, sudo apt-get install plasma-scriptengine-python. Then right click your destop and select the option add widgets. Select the option "Get new Windgets" and "Download new plasma widgets", then in the search box ...

I'm going ro answer my own question. This appears to be a recurring bug which has been reported on Launchpad back in 2013. Every version of ubuntu since is affected by this but not everyone sees the error. On the moment I write this (march 2015) there's no permanent solution, however there are workarounds to solve the problem. For Ubuntu 14.10 the problem ...

When you install an OS in EFI mode, it alters the NVRAM settings on the computer to point to the new OS's boot loader. Normally this works fine. My suspicion is that in your case, this change has affected the way the computer reacts to keypresses during startup or has otherwise affected startup options. If I'm right, this is a firmware bug. Some possible ...

Open the shortcut with some text editor like gedit or kate icon by right-clicking on it, and selecting "Open with gedit". In the text editor, shortly after the 'comment' and 'app command' text, you should see something like 'Icon=exec,' (ignore the quotes) change it to Icon=/usr/share/icons/eclipse.png or Icon=eclipse

I had the same problem with this mouse, and I found the solution using the second approach mentioned here: http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/177998/bluetooth-mouse-disconnects In short, create a rule file, namely "99-bluetooth.rules", in "/etc/udev/" and add this line in it: ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="bluetooth", ATTR{product}=="Microsoft Bluetooth ...

The error message already includes a detailed problem statement. You probably migrated your .gnupg folder from another machine, or tampered another way with the file permissions. These two lines fix the permissions. The first one ensures that the ~/.gnupg folder (and everything in it) is actually yours. To possibly overtake ownership, it requires root ...

It seems it may be broken. You may mount it using this commands on terminal: sudo mkdir -p /mnt/disk sudo mount -o loop DISKNAME.iso /mnt/disk This way it should be mounted to /mnt/disk It always worked to me, if not, the image should be damaged

Sounds as if the iso are corrupt. Otherwise you can loop mount them. sudo -i mount -o loop your.iso /mnt The files are then available under /mnt. Post any error messages you get. If you want a graphical interface use gisomount See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MountIso for additional information.

What ultimately worked for me was to check whether the shell was an interactive shell. I based the solution on this other post at unix.stackexchange: How to check if a shell is login/interactive/batch.

I saw that you found where to change it. However, a few things: en_US.UTF-8 is not a valid value in the LANGUAGE variable. You probably just want en. I noticed that LANG has the value en_US. That enables latin1 encoding, which you don't likely want. Should be en_US.UTF-8. If LANG is set correctly, you should not set the LC_ALL variable, because it ...

The error dialog is due to the fix of bug #678421, so it's my fault. ;) It tells you about errors due to some command(s) in one of your configuration files. If you scroll to the top, you can see which file is causing the error messages. Possibly Serg's answer is sufficient to get rid of the warning dialog. Edit: Would like to add a couple of things due to ...

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 ...

You need to create the file yourself and add the commands to it. Just leaving this here in case anyone other noob misunderstands what they are supposed to do :) Add these commands to an empty text file, and save it in /etc/profile.d and name it kwin.sh. If it doesn't work immediately, restart you're computer, it should fix any tearing you may have :) ...
