Your problem is caused by Btrfs quirks. Because it supports subvolumes, it's often necessary to specify unusual options to get rEFInd to scan the right subdirectory and to get the kernel to recognize the right location as its root. To get rEFInd to scan the kernels, you must add the following line to refind.conf: also_scan_dirs +,@/boot This assumes that ...

SOLVED: I solved it by installing the 64 bit version. I was getting errors trying to install the 32 bit version on a machine I thought was running 32 bit Ubuntu. So it was looking for the 32 bit versions of the dependencies and not finding them. It was a little hard at first because I could see they were clearly there.

It turns out that it had nothing to do with the system itself. It was a problem caused by VMWare hotkey. By default VMWare uses Ctrl+Alt as hot key, which conflicts with Ctrl+Alt+arrow in Openbox. After changing hot key preference in VMWare, it works perfectly.

Thanks for help everyone, but now I have already found the solution on Youtube. I used in terminal this command:"kde5-nm-connection-editor" and opened KDE connection editor and so I managed to create new Wi-Fi hotspot and it works very well.

You can save a folder's settings by opening the folder, and choosing View->Preserve This Folder's Settings. The settings are going to be saved in ~/.config/libfm/dir-settings.conf or ~/.config/pcmanfm/dir-settings.conf.

It looks like your Windows system was hibernated and not actually shut down. That causes issues for Linux's ntfs3g driver. So, you need to boot back into Windows and shut it down cleanly. In their infinite wisdom, the Microsoft developers decided to make it hard for users to shut down their machines. According to this site, you need to: Mouse over ...

Great, so you’re a Linuxer and got a Windows Phone. Congratulations. :) Anyway … before we get to the point, here’s some background on USB: When you create a USB connection, the hardware will first “negotiate” the relationship between the device (your phone) and the host (your laptop). USB defines various classes for devices. The Linux kernel ships modules ...

Kernel 3.13.0-59 seems to be buggy. There a number of reports, that installation of this kernel causes various problems. Probably some backport was not very good. I suggest switching to kernel 3.19 by running sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-vivid

ap-hotspot is pretty outdated as the developer has stopped working on it for quite some time now. I suggest using create_ap as an alternative. To install, type the following in terminal. git clone https://github.com/oblique/create_ap cd create_ap make install Complete details on installation and use is found here.

I don't think the PPA currently has a version of ap-hotspot available for 15.04, however you should be able to install it by downloading the deb file from here for another Ubuntu version (the below instructions use 14.10's) and installing it: wget "https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/ubuntu/webupd8/+files/ap-hotspot_0.3-1%7Ewebupd8%7E4_all.deb" ...

I just recently had exactly the same problem with my Linksys AC1200 USB WiFi stick. In my case it helped switching from WPA security to WEP security on the WiFi network. That might help you out here too. It seems that WPA support of the driver is not fully functional.

I suggest installing a dkms driver from ppa.

You will need an internet connection to do this but you need to compile the driver for the the device. The native rtl8192cu driver is absolutely awful and gets a range of about 3 or 4 meters.

If you've done an EFI-mode installation, then 99.9% of the software you need is installed; the only thing left is a boot loader. Ordinarily, using Boot Repair might help; but with an existing Windows installation, you really need to run Boot Repair in EFI mode, which isn't working for you (from the installation medium, anyhow). Therefore, I suggest you try ...

This can happen if you try to run updates while the system is already doing it. My Lubuntu install checks for updates each morning around 8 am - I didn't explicitly ask for it to do this, so I assume it is a default - and I've seen this message if I try to do similar things while it's running.
