Ok, found an answer in Arch Wiki. They give the next solution: There is just one thing systemd cannot do (as of systemd-204): power management depending on whether the system is running on AC or battery. To fill this gap, you can create a single udev rule that runs a script when the AC adapter is plugged and unplugged: ...

Welcome to Ubuntu with systemd rather than with upstart. This is systemd bug #76267. Lennart Poettering's initial explanation was:The [nvidia] binary driver does not implement the DRM interfaces in /sys. This means we cannot detect how many displays are connected and then we decide not to handle the lid switch since we cannot be sure about whether the ...

I have a dell latitude d620 and the answer below did resolve my issue. I was hesitant about the "remove" command and tried it without first and it did not work. Repeating it with the remove did the trick! sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer sudo apt-get remove bcmwl-kernel-source sudo reboot

Your HP620 has an old GM45 Graphic Chipset, this chipset work as an on demand process. Meaning once you plug it into the HDMI port you automatically see it, since Ubuntu works kinda the same way. The bios will also load on screen as well, making it a nice thing to have.

It's perfectly safe for Ubuntu to be installed on and run from that SSD. Linux don't need to stinkin' .exe files. ;-P If you want to know, whether a Windows installation (e. g. in a dual-boot environment) will be affected by the removal of that file, you should ask on SuperUser. The people here are really good at removing Windows and installing Ubuntu, but ...

Simple answer: NO Some newer models of laptop may have features that are yet supported. Moreover, some hardware features may be from an electronics manufacturer who does not (and will not) release documentation or source code to allow the device to work properly with open source and/or Linux. However, that is not specific or characteristic of any ...

So there are a lot of questions here and I will try to answer most of them. Here I will be speaking mostly from experience with Ubuntu over the last couple of years. Officially supported Ubuntu laptops Canonical keeps a list of laptops and desktops that have been thoroughly tested. If support is the most important thing to you, find something on this list. ...

14.10 Utopic has been released (in October last year) and is stable, but is newer than 14.04 LTS Trusty (which could be 'more stable') - 15.04 Vivid is in development and will be released in April. See more here As for GNOME, Ubuntu sort of misses out on newer versions due to the timing of GNOME's release and Ubuntu's. So if you want to install a newer ...

According to How to charge the battery till 60-80% only?, you can use Dell's Airplane manager to enable airplane mode so now the laptop will not charge the buttery and run off AC power instead. You can install it from ppa:opensource-subakutty/ppa, but personally I couldn't manage to install it on a 64-bit Trusty machine.

Try running this command: sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter Then reboot. This will install a proprietary driver for your wifi card (that I guess that is a Broadcom B43) If this doesn't work, I'll ask you for more data.

I think this is not included as it varies with what spec you choose - e.g. looking at the specs of this model off of their front page, the fact you can have a i5 or i7 CPU, as well as choose what display, RAM, wifi etc it has will affect battery life - I will note that I think 62.16 Wh is very good compared to (lower-power) laptops I have had, but as this is ...

Their requirements page says that 1024x768 is the minimum resolution. It goes on to advise there is a netbook version which matches your resolution & Xubuntu and Lubuntu require 800x600 You seem smarter than I regarding things so I am just guessing you overlooked that or want to 'hack' a way to get it working. Best of luck Cheers
