The problem is in the lubuntu converting file:///mnt/1.0TB/Calibre%20Library/ to /mnt/1.0TB/Calibre%20Library/ - which is not a valid path.

This will not answer your question but answer your problem: You can use instead : beebeep: http://beebeep.sourceforge.net/ (multi-platform with a GUI) tox: https://tox.im/ (skype like but encrypted and you can make your own node, multi-platform) or you can setup an irc server and use regular IRC client. BUT this means changing the other clients on the ...

As best as I can tell, zcache was removed from the kernel as of version 3.11: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1256503 I would recommend looking at zswap instead.

In addition to the accepted answer: Right-click the desktop, go to Desktop Preferences > Appearance and set the "Font of label text" there. Right-click the Panel (Application/Start Bar), go to Panel Settings > Appearance and set the Font size. This one only goes up to 20, but it's much better than before.

The best way is to install lubuntu from scratch, but you will need to install applications again. You can install lubuntu desktop by running sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop But some Ubuntu services will keep starting and making the system slow. And yes, all applications will work on lubuntu. And terminal commands are same.

It seems the monitor where the task bar is positioned at, can be changed in the task bar's panel preferences. To the right you can see the monitor it is displayed at.

Your error indicates that gcc - the GNU C Compiler - is not present on your system. To get it, you should install build-essential which is a meta package which will pull in the compiler and most of the standard libraries it needs for compiling things as dependencies. Run this command to install it: sudo apt-get install build-essential

This works for me with Lubuntu 14.04 and Geany 1.23.1: Open Geany. Click on Edit, Preferences and, in there, view the Startup tab. Make sure "Enable Plugin Support" is ticked. Click Apply. You should now see the Plugin Manager as an entry in the Tools menu.

Excursus: PAE on Banias CPUs The T41 has a Pentium-M CPU, which came in "Dothan" and "Banias" flavors. Both are PAE capable, but the Banias CPU doesn't advertise this via the CPUID. To work around this issue, a patch was included in the linux kernel from version 3.15 on. This patch recognizes the Banias CPU and, in conjunction with forcepae, enables PAE on ...

Sounds like your script lacks a shebang line. Make sure the very first line of the script reads: #!/usr/bin/env bash or #!/bin/bash On a side note, you should avoid putting .sh extension on a bash script, since bash is not sh. Preferably use no extension at all.

muru's comments are spot on. Since you already have Ubuntu 12.04 which is a LTS version, upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 which is a LTS version. That is the easiest way. Once that is accomplished you can change your distro to Lubuntu by adding LXDE which will make it Lubuntu. You will still have all of the Ubuntu applications and the Lubuntu applications. For ...
