I've just tried the script mentioned here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...079/comments/7 (copied below) with a positive result.

The issue appeared to happen sporadically, after some debugging I figured out that it happened only when gnome-screensaver was running (which I disabled in the startup menu but still ran on every boot). So basically I just removed gnome-screensaver altogether and running xscreesaver instead.

I suggest you try placing the command in rc.local: gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local Use nano or kate or leafpad if you don't have the text editor gedit. Right above the final line exit 0, add your command: xinput -set-prop 12 135 0 Proofread carefully, save and close the text editor.

I assuming your changing the levels so much that your monitor is not detecting an input. Try putting your levels to a "medium" level and the change the brightness setting on the monitor instead. Hope this helps!

Many thanks for your response(s).David, Neftas and Fabby I have tried both versions 14-04 and 14.10 -- first 14.10 with the same issue. I created a USB stick and then changed the stick and then downloaded again. The same issue persisted and both failed. Otherwise, I would have installed one and upgraded.I also tried Linux Mint 17.1 and that too had the same ...

Only thing that worked for me was to disable the lock screen. Which in my case is fine, since the laptop is stationary. However this may be of little relief to those people who actually carry their laptop around

You can detect if you have some library problems by opening the terminal (cntrl+alt+t) and typing: $ sudo apt-get check If you get an error message (if not see the link below), you can solve it using: $ sudo apt-get -f install This will repair broken dependencies, that could be the problem. If this doesn't solve the issue, you could try this solution ...

Just restore your system backup from before the change and done! (You're definitely user type 4!) Oh? You don't have any??? Well, for the future, ensure you do have one! ;-) For now, and as you said that any help is accepted, just execute the following commands: gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xrandr default-monitors-setup 'follow-lid' ...

I used the guide in here to do exactly this a few days ago: https://charlesmcruz.wordpress.com/2012/01/22/ubuntu-11-10-automatic-hdmi-toggle-with-audio/ Only had to change the sound profile for it to work perfectly. When I connect an hdmi cable, the display turns off on my laptop and moves to the monitor and the sound changes as well. When I disconnect it, ...

This may well have something to do with your graphics card. Do you have NVIDIA? I've had the same problem; it was due to the Nouveau graphics card driver that Ubuntu installs as a default. Open 'Software & Updates' and go to the tab 'Additional drivers'. It will tell you which graphics card driver it is using. Switch to NVIDIA's recommended ...

I have similar Bluetooth hardware. A Lenovo G50-70 with an Atheros Bluetooth card in it, running Kubuntu 14.04. From lsusb: Bus 002 Device 007: ID 0cf3:3004 Atheros Communications, Inc. I was also getting the failure to load error=-110 as well. What I have found is the /lib/firmware/ath3k-1.fw shipped with kubuntu is not working. The file shipped has a ...

julka is right, you have to put the Ubuntu (weak systems: better lubuntu or xubuntu) installation files onto a physical drive and boot your machine from it. But instead of changing the BIOS settings, usually there is another hotkey to open a boot device selection popup (my BIOS writes for example: "Press DEL to enter Setup, F6 for BBS Popup"). Search for ...

Update: This will make the "video" button and the "rog" button next to the keypad also launch steam. Will look into that when I have the time. This is how I made the "Steam button" work on my ASUS ROG G751. I would not be surprised if there is a simpler way to do this :) I am using xbindkeys to bind the steam key to a script. The script will start steam if ...

It's a bit complicated and I don't remember all the details. However, the percentage is only a rough calculation and it needs to calibrate to be accurate. Don't spend a lot of time worrying that 95% is bad and 100% is good nor that 55% is a whole lot different than 45%. It calibrates using discharge charge cycles to the realities of the battery to make ...

You cannot install Ubuntu (and any other Linux system I know) from already booted system. What you need is write the disk image (file with .iso extension) you installed to DVD or USB with pendrivelinux to create a bootable media. I highly recommend getting somebody who knows computers to assist you. Then you need to boot from that media (DVD or USB). ...

Testimonial. I'm using a Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 which I have had for about a month. I love it. It is running Ubuntu 14.10 just fine. There is always tweaking. The kernel didn't want to turn on the WiFi in 14.04 and some other things but 14.10 was fixed and works out of the box. The first thing you will have to do is some dancing around the synaptics ...

Unless there's something going wrong (hard drive reading very slow), it could be that Atom processors & HP Mini's may be a little too slow to run the regular Unity version of Ubuntu.

Just ran into the same problem on my Dell Vostro. Here's the solution that worked for me: It turned out that Ubuntu just saves brightness level set by fn+brightness keys on my laptop. Different levels for different states: plugged and unpluged. So, I just had to set up my brightness level twice :) I know it's super easy, but I still had to Google a bit ...

For a big server in an air-conditioned data-centre, anything above 60°C (140°F) is something to look at and above 70°C (158°F) something to worry about. For a laptop, it depends on its use and environment: If it gets too warm to comfortably keep it on your lap, buy an external passive cooler. If it's on a desk, just put a 2-3cm (1") thick book ...

Depending on the hardware you have, there looks to be 3 different wireless card possibilities for your machine. I would start there, figure out which manufacturer you have and then locate the wireless driver for Linux for it. Once you locate the driver and install it you should be able to connect to your WAP/Router and be on your way.

Dell introduced Inspiron 13 7000 (7347) to be Ubuntu-compatible in 2014. I've bought a Dell Inspiron 13 7000 respectively Dell Inspiron 7347 with preinstalled Ubuntu 12.04 and had too many issues with this device - my conclusion: it is NOT compatible! Sound issue: due to driver problems (official advice from dell) there is a markable crackle or rattle the ...
