I would definitely not recommend installing older Ubuntu versions, given that there will be no security updates for them, leaving your system vulnerable for all kinds of attacks. Instead, it would be better to go for a lighter desktop edition, for example LUbuntu (or are you already using that give nthat this post is tagged with lubuntu). As to the missing ...

Claws Mail won't download all msg bodies automatically (depending on the settings you choose), so this shouldn't be a problem. If the msg cache is getting too big, use 'discard folder cache' from the Folder Properties.

You can try manually deleting anything that might be left over. Open a terminal Enter cd /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ Enter ls to see what's in the directory Enter sudo rm <filename> to delete a connection You might have to log out and back in for it to take effect. The Ubuntu Network Manager tends not to like it when you manually delete ...

Skype 4.3 can only use pulseaudio sound daemon to output sound. As I understand you have no sound at all in skype so I guess you either don't have pulseaudio or you don't have it running. I would recommend you to install pavucontrol and try to figure out if you have sound input/output working. So the solution: sudo apt-get install pavucontrol; pavucontrol ...

The ip address in the address line must be the reserved ip address you have configured within your router. That works well, but the more common method is to pick an address outside the DHCP range in the router. For example, if the router is set to allow 50 addresses for DHCP from, for example, 192,168.1.2 to 192.168.1.51, pick an address outside the ...

Ubuntu server for me works now. The process I followed was thus: (NB these steps are for a simple home network, and assumes a little knowledge about getting local network settings such as the gateway address, and the DNS name server address.) 1) I set-up a reserved ip-address within my router for my home network. (See NB1 at the end of this post about ...

This looks like a bug, upowerd is hanging for some reason. There is a similar but unanswered report on the Ubuntu forums here and Mint forums here (the suggested reason there is something to do with reporting the battery status: "at present my system will not show me charge status") I would suggest reporting the bug on Launchpad and possibly on the upower ...

I've been holding off offering an answer to your question. I'm not sure if I've got the wrong end of the stick (so to speak).

You can generally shut down your computer by holding down Alt and Prt Sc and then slowly pressing REISUB in that order. It works on most computers. It is not good for your hardware to force a shut down by pressing the power button.

The problem appears to be linked to a defective LXPanel in the Lubuntu Daily Build. I tried to write to the LXDE team but I am not sure if my email got through or not. If you are utilizing the Daily Build PPA do not install the LXPanel. Not only will you not be able to retrieve any open Windows/Programs within the Taskbar, as they don't appear and when you ...

Sure you can. Open Users in preferences, and click your user account. (You will need to unlock it). Somewhere there, you will see a Login at boot or Login automatically options. Uncheck that box.

The following two steps are required: Start the window manager with dbus-launch in ~/.xinitrc: exec dbus-launch --exit-with-session <your-wm> This makes the disks show up in PCManFM.

Installation with the alternate installer for Lubuntu 14.04.1 and the forcepae option worked. First, the problem seemed to have been a badly partitioned hard drive (with an unallocated space between two partitions). In contrast to the normal installer, the alternate installer did not fail at the beginning, so one could manually ask the installer not to ...

It's strange that this setting would change out of its own accord but you should be able to revert it by manually editing the configuration file of your window manager (openbox): Create a backup copy of your existing openbox configuration: cp "~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml" "~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc-old.xml" Open ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml ...

Your best bet to find drivers it to first know what you have on your computer.

As already noted, either Lubuntu or Xubuntu should be fine. As a side note, let me point you to Linux Distribution Chooser, an online test which will recommend you some distributions in case you ever feel overwhelmed by all the options out there.

My best bets would be the following (in that order): Lubuntu 14.04 Xubuntu 14.04 Elementary OS 0.2 Luna (this runs great on my 1,6 GHz notebook) Ubuntu 14.04.1 (runs fairly well, even though it uses most ressources)

From what I've read, this is possible by setting up a proxy. I'm not too familiar with doing so, but found two recommendations, one for squid and one for privoxy. A guide for doing this with privoxy can be found on superuser.

You may need to restart X or reboot after setting up ibus etc. Depending on the program you are writing in, there may be an entry in the context menu on right mouse click in the text area or field you write to, where input method can be changed.

Lubuntu 14.04 was released with a bug that did not start the nm-applet. It has been fixed. However, if you are trying to install 14.04, you must physically start the network manager. To do that go to Menu->Preferences->Default applications for LXsession->Autostart Navigate to Add and type in nm-applet. Then tap Add. I believe that you have to log out and ...
