Try using this repository: ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily Type in the terminal: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks I had the same issue and this worked for me on the first try.

Referring to Mozilla Firefox Bug 727422, it seems that Firefox is not correctly using the defaults.list or mimeapps.list to figure out which file manager to use. According to the above mentioned thread, this is not due to Firefox itself. Nevertheless, it causes Firefox to use mimeinfo.cache instead. Therefore, I just tried changing mimeinfo.cache where I've ...

You didn't install the X2go server, just the bindings X2Go bindings for LXDE (package name: x2golxdebindings) will add additional X2Go-related functionality to your LXDE Desktop. You need to run sudo apt-get install x2goserver x2goserver-xsession for the server. See the install guide for details. On a side note, X2go depends on openssh-server which ...

Used the suggestion to right click the synaptic entry in the menu under System Tools, choose Properties, then Desktop Entry tab and change synaptic-pkexec to gksudo synaptic. That didn't work, so I investigated via terminal running synaptic (gksudo synaptic). For me, trying to use gksudo resulted in a message telling me how to install gksu. When I tried ...

If you have the installation media you originally used. You could boot from that to the live session, the chroot in to your installed system. FYI sudo apt-get update Only refreshes the sources So it's not clear what kind of upgrade you are telling us about. Once chroot I would suggest doing: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

In Lubuntu there is an application in the menu called default applications for lxsession. It is under Preferences. Once you open it, merely navigate to web browser and choose the browser that you would like to be the default choice. Alternatively, there is a choice in Firefox and there probably is one in chrome as well where you choose it to be the ...

I know this sucks, but checking the obvious, did you verify that this is not hardware failure? Does the mouse work on another system?

The command apt-get install ubuntu-desktop* uses a regex expression that matches and causes all flavours of Ubuntu (Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Xubuntu, and Lubuntu) to be installed. Lubuntu was configured to be the active one which explains the appearance of Lubuntu artwork, packages & text. The following commands removes the Ubuntu flavour packages and ...

You have three questions here that really should be posted separately. For the issues with mounting the NAS.. If the NAS is sharing via SMB, you shouldn't need to account for whatever filesystem it's running on a client machine - the NAS box will handle the filesystem overhead. Adding an entry in /etc/fstab to connect to the NAS at boot should solve the ...

The way you added authorised keys, you haven't added your user's key to root's authorised keys. You have added your own key to your authorised keys and root's key to root's authorised keys. Instead do: sudo tee -a /root/.ssh/authorized_keys < ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

Like mentioned in the question thread here, installing a program from a place other than the repositories (think: Ubuntu Software Center) is the exception, and not the rule. Warthunder is (indirectly) available from the repositories. You can download and run Warthunder through Valve's Steam digital software delivery system. Steam is available in Ubuntu's ...

Using maim Overview maim (make image) is a new screenshot utility that is designed as an improved version of scrot. One of the many new features maim comes with is the support for setting a screen capture area right from the CLI. The syntax works as follows: maim -x <x-coordinate> -y <y-coordinate> -w <width> -h <height> ...

geeqie may be configured to move file to a defined folder rather than permanently delete it (Menu Edit | Preferences | Preferences | Behavior | Safe delete). Note that file will be renamed (by adding prefix) and that geeqie may pernamently delete files placed in this folder, so moving directly to trash is not feasible.

Typically, only fixes to critical bugs and security vulnerabilities are pushed down to all users. The exact definition of a "critical bug" is subject to interpretation, but in general, these would need to be significant problems that affect a large number of users, cause data loss or corruption, or allow someone to exploit your system. According to the ...

When an Ubuntu release is made, the versions of packages/software in that release remain constant. In other words, applications aren't updated just because there's a new version available. The only times there is an update made is when there's a regression from the previous version or when there's a critical vulnerability (some packages have exceptions, like ...

This appears to be a known bug. See: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/1160569 and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=833117 If you have anything to contribute to that bug report (at a glance, the detail that it runs once and then doesn't again seems to be a new detail).

That's not how the panel is intended to look - this is a known bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lubuntu-artwork/+bug/1362555 (If you know how to use launchpad, please feel free to report that this bug also affects you.)

Yes, there is a workaround described here: Looks like broken theming. You can easily check by installing the package shimmer-themes and setting the notification theme (in xfce4-notifyd-config) to "Greybird". That should fix it. shimmer-themes is available via the Lubuntu Software Center or you can just run sudo apt-get install shimmer-themes. Then ...

Installing xfce4 to avoid turning the screen black? That's ridiculous. You could try at least this simple script before insalling a complete desktop manager just for the screensaver (which turns on when you don't use the computer): http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2251377&highlight=

setxkbmap -option caps:none disables Caps Lock. To make it pernament it is necessary to add this command to autostart. To do this in Lubuntu go to start menu, select "Preferences", run "Default Applications for LXSession". Then go to tab "Autostart" and add this command using "Manual autostarted application". It disables Caps Lock on login, unfortunately ...

I solved this, and figure others may benefit. Turns out you can download the generic Epson Linux driver package, called: epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_1.4.4-1lsb3.2_i386.deb (for my case, an Ubuntu distro). You have to install lsb, then this Debian package. After that, the system-config-printer tool finds the driver and you're all set.

In Lubuntu, you can do exactly what you want: take a screen shot from the command line with the command: scrot_extended 100 100 400 400 using the script below. The four arguments are <x>, <y>, <width>, <height>. I didn't have the chance (yet) to test it in Lubuntu 12.04, but it seems unlikely it wouldn't work; it uses python 2 and ...

I don't think this is a graphics bug, I think the theme you're using is providing a texture that has a vertical gradient and it applies nicely to the taskbar but clearly not the notifications. I suggest trying another theme or editing this one.

Open the terminal using CTRL + ALT + F1 (or whatever key works for you). While in your home directory, type the command cat .xsession-errors. This will give you the error that is causing the login screen loop. In my case it was an error in the /etc/profile that I had editied last night.

Are you able to log in by hitting CTRL+ALT+F1 to bring up a terminal and then put in your username and password. If you can, then please post the output of the following command here: tail -30 /var/log/Xorg.0.log and tail -30 /var/log/syslog

You could use dd command. If you have an iso image of the cdrom you can use: dd if=/path/to/iso/winxp.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4M or is you have a windows XP CD-ROM you can use: dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/dev/sdc bs=4M Note: The /dev/sdc disk is just an example. You have to find out which drive is your pendrive. You can use either df or lsblk commands. Otherwise ...

I suggest you reboot into an earlier linux-image by selecting it at the GRUB menu as I linked above. Afterwards, reinstall the faulty version: sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-3.13.0-45-generic When finished, reboot and test.

Chromium dropped support for running on processors that don't have SSE2 a few versions ago. I believe this primarily impacts those who have i386 Athlon processors, as those don't have SSE2. You can check to see if you have SSE2 by running cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep flags. If SSE2 is not in the output, then you don't have SSE2 If you still want to use Google ...

Lubuntu uses the CUPS printer spooler by default. To install an lpr program for CUPS you need to install the package cups-bsd instead of lpr. The package lpr contains the BSD lpd printer spooler. Its lpr programm doesn't know about your default printer for CUPS but tries to use the printer lp which doesn't exist on your system.

This happens if pcmanfm does not draw the desktop and then you try to open desktop prefrences when pcmanfm does not draw the desktop. If you changed some things in defualt applicatinos for lxsession you could make it so pcmanfm does not draw a wallpaper or you kill pcmanfm. You can start pcmanfm in the background to draw the desktop with pcmanfm --desktop ...

I've had the same problem, both with gparted and fatresize. It seems to be a bug, specifically bug #1313600. In the end, my solution was to format the USB drive manually and not use any move or resize operations for FAT32. FYI, note that using the command-line tool parted to resize/move the partition doesn't work either, as it is not filesystem-aware and ...

I found an alternate method that works...I created a grub rescue CD and then used that to chain load a LiveUSB stick, but at the same time I'd still really like to know how I could custom make an install image without some of the included software suite...all of it being possible to obtain from the ubuntu software center.

There is no hardware_keycode for a unicode character unless you can type it by pressing a key. See xmodmap about mapping a unicode character to a physical keyboard key. Enjoy.

Instead of using CD's you could try network-boot the machine on the minimal ISO (if Lubuntu comes with netboot stuff) I would then install Lubuntu to the desktop, followed by rebooting to the desktop hard drive and running sudo apt-get install lubuntu-core You may need to modify /etc/apt/sources.list to a non local server and then run sudo apt-get ...

Yep, you can use the mini.iso instead. It's like 32mb total and it does an install similar to tasksel like Debian or Ubuntu server where you can choose what to install and it will install it. This also allows the option to not install all the bloat you normally get with a desktop install. BTW, I do not believe you should install any of the "live" desktops ...

If you want to remove all those mini files, I might suggest running these two commands: cd / rm -r 6jF8vak8\ H (if "/6jF8vak8 H" is the directory hosting all those files like you mention in the comment.) If this command fails, it might be because you lack permission to write to that directory, in which case you would need to use sudo - which is ...
