@cucujoida, The old muon-updater has been superceded by plasma-discover-updater. If you ensure that plasma-discover-updater has been installed, you can uninstall muon-updater if you still find that in your system. I hope this helps.

A workaround: go to Panel Settings, make the panel smaller (by dragging it) and maximize it again (there is a "maximize panel" button). After that, windows do not go beneath it anymore.

I had same problem in my system: Kubuntu 16.04 LTS (kernel:4.4.0-31-generic(x86_64)). But I solved it in very simple way: in "system settings" under "personalization" tab, click on "regional settings". choose "Formats" from right menu. In the left check "detailed settings" and change every detail such as Numbers or Time to your desired language and region. ...

Fixed! Press Ctrl + D and received a message about my hard drive mount and "default" not being a valid option so I opened a file I edited using sudo nano /etc/fstab previously, and ran that again now, removed "default 0 0" from the end of the last line of code in the /etc/fstab file, saved 'Ctrl + O' then pressed Enter then 'Ctrl + X' then put 'reboot' into ...

The workaround I use is to install the Linux version of Steam. The store works there, you can buy the Windows games, then start the Wine-Steam and play them.


3

If you run the windows version of steam on wine, you also need to make sure all dependencies are available. For example: steam for windows uses a browser as backend for its store and community. Not sure if it is Internet Explorer, but give it a try please. And if that does not work, install firefox and/or google chrome for windows under the wine, as well. ...

I think you're getting the "out of space" message because the Live USB stores all your files (including Steam and any other programs that you installed previously) in RAM, and your computer is running out of space in RAM! Try rebooting (which will reset everything and free up your RAM), and boot into the Ubuntu USB installer and start the installation ...

steam doesn't start after upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 This sorta fixed it.. I have to input LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6' steam whenever I want to run Linux Steam and wait for it to update (along with keycode verification) each time which is quite annoying.. Will post another question about this. More on that here: (steamwebhelper.exe error) ...

Have you tried putting it back in another time? I would test another pair of headphones with your audio jack to check if the audio output is damaged. Another thing could be dust build-up in the output, you can use a Q-tip to try to remove dirt and see if that corrects anything.

I'm not sure if this would help since this is a solution for those running ArchLinux, but if you've got nothing else to lose: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=193802 removing some files got it working for these users.

Commenting out the the line that starts with /dev/sda9 by adding a # in front of it, saving and rebooting, should do the trick.

The bottleneck is your hard drive, on top of 16.04 just being slower to boot up. A 5400 RPM disk is the slowest out there. Even 7200 or 10k RPM drives will result in a boot time of 40-60 seconds with Ubuntu 16.04. I have a PC with triple RAID 0 array with 10k RPM drives, and my Kubuntu 16.04 takes about 15 seconds to boot. But my RAID array is very fast. ...

I also recommend FSearch https://github.com/cboxdoerfer/fsearch I found that it index my files faster than ANGRYsearch. However searching for files feels smooth with ANGRYsearch. Recrawling is faster with ANGRYsearch. So overall ANGRYsearch feels better. FSearch is just in PreAlpha according to git page. So future release may improve it. Compiling was ...

I got it. The setting that needed to be altered is found under: System Settings> Application Style> GNOME Application Style (GTK) I needed to increase the font size from 10 to 12 to match the font size i chose under: System Settings> Font> Fonts Here is the effect before and after: Firefox is using font 10 and Opera is font 12.

I would use gnome-do myself. It occasionally froze for me the first time I would use it upon rebooting, but this can be mostly solved by changing its settings to get rid of the shadow and transparency effects. What's more you can change the appearance style (I prefer mini myself) and the colour of the widow to suit your preferences. Also it can if desired ...

The system is using ALSA already. Pulseaudio (or similar) is required to have multiple applications at multiple different volume levels, as ALSA is simply the hardware driver layer, and does not itself provide any software mixing at the application level. To use ALSA directly for all applications, you would need to create a virtual loopback sound card for ...

It sounds like KDE installed successfully, but the login manager is still defaulting to Unity. To load KDE, you'll need to manually select it in the login screen. First, log out. Then on the Ubuntu login screen, try clicking on the Ubuntu logo near your username. There should now be a list of installed desktop environments to choose from. Choose "KDE", log ...

The issue might be with those programs themselves having a font override. I know within Firefox there are font options and sizes you can change that aren't controlled by the system unless high contrast colors are used. For Firefox it's found under Preferences> Content and going into "advanced" within that page will allow further tweaking. Not sure if it's ...

I know this is an old question but I came across it when looking for an answer to a similar problem, tiny font sizes in browser tabs and in program menus.

I figured it out phewww - the system was basically useless! Instead of reporting what did not work (e.g. looking at x-0-greeter.log), I will try to summarize what worked. I assume not many people having this issue as it is caused by fingerprint-gui. $ sudo cat /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log At some point I started comparing my (buggy) log to one in which ...

My first recommendation is ANGRYsearch. Superfast, fully configurable. You can find the official website here. To install, you need some dependencies (if not there already). In a terminal type: sudo apt install python3-pyqt5 Then, download latest release from here. Unzip in a folder, and then from a terminal inside that folder type: chmod +x install.sh ...

Why do you need Wine? Is it not what you search (on Linux system)? apropos - search the manual page names and descriptions man apropos locate - find files by name man locate locate "fir." find - search for files in a directory hierarchy man find find / |grep "fir." grep, egrep, fgrep, rgrep - print lines matching a pattern grep -R "fir." /home/...

Three options: Install Xenserver and run Lubuntu and Kubuntu with hardware passthrough to each simultaneously, spinning down one or the other as necessary (I am willing to bet your i3 will actually handle this nicely) Install KDE on Lubuntu and switch DEs at the login screen Install Kubuntu alongside Lubuntu and dual-boot using GRUB to select your OS of ...


2

There's essentially three ways to do what you want: Set up a dual boot system. This means that Lubuntu and Kubuntu will be completely separate, on two different partitions. However, you can share data between them, e.g. with a shared partition for data, or by directly copying files from one partition to the other. This may use less resources (memory) than ...

Thanks to Karsus I was able to track down the information I needed!!! I found that if you install PAVUCONTROL you can pinpoint applications and see/control what sound output devices they think they should be using. I had to manually set my browsers to use my headset for output. Sweet! Thank you Karsus.

There is a workaround to avoid this problems: "disable the splash screen (System Settings -> Workspace Theme -> Splash Screen -> Set Theme to "None")" (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/breeze/+bug/1584604/comments/14). The bug seems to caused by breeze.

If you are doing a fresh install and don't have any data on that machine that you want to keep, then I would look into installing Kubuntu, which is a distribution of Ubuntu, but with the KDE desktop already installed with all of it's dependencies, instead of the Gnome desktop that comes native with the standard Ubuntu distributions. http://kubuntu.org/ I ...

I don't have KDE installed right now to test. As I remember with Kubuntu 15.04, KDE was creating two files to override GTK theme settings. GTK2: ~/.gtkrc-2.0 GTK3: ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini As they are two separate file you can change them differently. But you may need to change them to read-only so KDE config tool will not able to change them. ...

You can edit the configuration file directly, but you may have to install lightdm-gtk-greeter (if not already installed). Go to the terminal and type: sudo apt-get install lightdm-gtk-greeter Then edit the configuration file: sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf or if you prefer to use a GUI text editor, sudo -i kate /etc/lightdm/lightdm-...

Error E: The value 'wily' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources occured during repositories reconfiguration.

Inspired by http://askubuntu.com/a/504402/458355 I created /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf with the following content: [SeatDefaults] user-session=plasma-kde Now login works. For the record: The file ~/.dmrc containes the line Session=kde-plasma-kf5 However, changing this line to Session=plasma was ignored by lightdm.
