So it turns out the problem was the HVR card that was in the computer. I took it out and it booted just fine. Hopefully the installed system won't do the same thing.

In the end, the KDE applet from the toolbar where you choose the network connections seems to be flaky. I used the system monitor and could show ~50% network saturation during transfers in both directions.

i finally gave up, and installed 16.04 Xubuntu... and then after that booted properly, plugged my 16.04 Kubuntu live-disk and opted for the "Delete and install without reformating". that way the correct boot structure that Xubuntu installed was left in place, but i could still use the OS that i wanted. works like a champ since then. judging from the ...

I have had the same problem today after resume from hibernation. I really don't know why this happens with Kubuntu 16.04 so much. This is what I got on live USB (Kubuntu 16.04) and I just hit Enter until the end. This is a bit embarrassing because I most have live USB around. Do someone knows how to solve definitely this problem ?

Plenty of AMD graphics drivers, including R9 270s, will not work with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS - I have an AMD A10-7700K Radeon R7 graphics driver, and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS does not work. I booted from DVD and pressed Try Ubuntu Without Installing and my monitor blacked out. I did a clean install of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and everything is working perfectly fine. I highly ...

Sorry, I don't have enough reputation to put this suggestion as comment: You may be interested by this topic Windows 7 disk scan should be unrelated, unless caused by the hard reboot.

Yeah, when you were setting it up it asked you for your name, and then it said that it was creating a user by the same name, and then it asked you to create a password, and asked you to enter it twice. That is the info you need to log into Ubuntu. So for example, my name is Chris Angulo-Bertram, so the default username it tries to give me is chris, I ...

Does this happen at all when you disable the option to save your session upon Shutdown? Maybe play around with the hibernation/sleep options a little. It sounds like it might be linked to this particular problem.

After... months! of having broken packages in my 14.10 Ubuntu, and not finding any way of fixing the problem (I've tried all the solutions you can find in the first 10 pages of google results), I accidentally found how to solve it for real: Just go to the "recovery mode" in the boot menu, enable the network connection and run the "fix broken packages" ...

Another good way of connecting to internet through 3g modems or dongles is Sakis3G. Although you need to have ppp installed first but it solves many problems. You can try your luck with this package.

I upgraded my Kubuntu 15.10 to 16.04 yesterday. After few hours, I had a initramfs, I tried some few things and none of them worked. Finally I started my system with Live Linux USB and I tried this: sudo fsck -a /dev/sda1 I was asked questions and I just hit "Enter" (many times) until the end and restart my system. You can find the source here enter link ...

From my experience with XFCE, the system tends to use the leftmost monitor for icons and panel placement. Setting the monitor you want to use, as primary also tells the system to prefer it. These should also apply to KDE I guess.

My problem seemed to be related: Kubuntu Breeze-Dark not working as expected I"ve also been upgrading from Ubuntu to Kubuntu. However, using the newest version of 5.6 of plasma from backports-landing resolved this issue.

On Ubuntu 14.04 it is in the repository for "Canonical Partners". Check this option on tab "Other Software" in "Software & Updates" and you will find it. It is an installer with an graphical frontend. If you try to install the .Bundle from Terminal, then you could try something like: cd Downloads chmod +x ...

I had the same problem after I fiddled around with the various themes. Especially the 'plastic' window decoration froze the entire desktop. Selectiing the default 'breeze' theme seems to have solved it. On a related note: when the desktop freezes, one can just kill the x-server by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Backspace> (provided the option is set in 'System ...

The problem seems to have solved itself. The avatar has now updated. I haven't done anything to specifically update it, though I suspect the times I have rebooted may have made a difference. Didn't notice it before now. I was probably just being impatient.

Method 1 Install gnome-ppp and connect your modem. It is the best way to connect to the Internet. Although, it is developed to be run on Gnome but I've been using this program on my Kubuntu 14.04 for a long time. So, I think it should work on yours too. 1. Install gnome-ppp by: apt-get install gnome-ppp 2. Then run the program by executing the ...

Just for the sake of completeness, the problem had nothing to do with KWallet. Instead it was caused by this bug: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=355415 Following the instructions of comment#19 I managed to patch the package. Should not be an issue on Kubuntu 16.04 or newer.

Why I do not think the lack of information is a good thing, give the guys a break. I am impatiently waiting for plasma 5.6 as well and - as far as I've been told - they are working on it. I've been told that plasma 5.6.4 might be the one backported and that I will probably be able to download it maybe within a month (was last week). I am thankful that it ...

I'm in the same situation: The answer to your question, like it or not, is NEON or wait for Kubuntu Backports. Another answer to your question is to switch to a different base, like Arch. That said, you should reconsider NEON. You might appreciate the following discussion: https://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthread.php?69621-KDE-neon&highlight=NEON And ...

I found the solution myself, so here the answer, if anyone else runs into it. It is an option I activated myself and forgot about it. If "Window Behavior" -> "Focus" -> "Focus stealing prevention" is set higher than "Medium" (actually when I can see a change in behavior all in all), then this issue of both menus opening and shortly closing after happens. ...

I found a command line method that works as well. I didn't try Furius ISO as I didn't want to install a program just to mount .IMG files and I also didn't want to run any GTK software on my Qt/KDE system. First you need add the .img file if it is a full disk like mine was. sudo losetup -f -P imageFileName.img Then you need to figure out what loop back ...

I was having this problem as well. I have the panel at the bottom of the screen. The workaround of making the panel transparent on mouse-exit worked alright, but I noticed that when I moved the mouse all the way to the bottom of the screen, the panel would go transparent as if there was a single pixel between the panel and the bottom of the screen. I ...

Finally solved the problem. The command to invoke Dolphin reads dolphin %i -caption "%c" %u while it apparently is supposed to be dolphin %u. After this correction Dolphin starts immediately.

I had the same issue. It has something to do with a bug when windows are set translucent. Go to system settings, desktop behavior, and then find anything that has a translucence setting and turn it off. Unfortunately thats an ongoing issue for now. Hope that helps my friend.

I figured it out! Here are the steps I took. First I booted into the Live USB, because I knew I could get gcc there, and then I used "apt-get download gcc gcc-5 etc.." to grab the .deb files from the USB. Then I moved them into a folder on my Kubuntu installation. Finally, I was able to use "dpkg -i *.deb" to install all of the packages. I wrote this ...

Ubuntu is now using systemd, and rc.local is now considered a service which is turned "off" by default. You can turn rc.local "on" by entering the following command and rebooting: sudo systemctl enable rc-local.service

Afflicted - saw that thread - didn't help me much Just got it working: Switched back to 4.4.0-22-generic via Grub Then installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-364.19.run And wouldn't you know it! It works! I have tried 2 days worth of other combinations of building kernels and rebooting to no avail. And there it works :-) :-) :-) All smiles!

I encountered this problem too and pkill is a little bit brutal I think Since I'm not using any akonadi dependent applications I make a akonadictl stop when mysqld get too much weighted.

As I thought, it's a no-go. They do not support Linux, and do not plan to support it in the future. My suggestion is either to migrate to another Linux-friendly solution for your files, or change the OS that you are using and use Windows or Mac.
