To change the double-click interval in Lubuntu (confirmed to be working on 14.04): Create a (hidden) file: ~/.gtkrc-2.0 (~/ is your home directory, files starting with . are hidden by default, press Ctrl+H to make hidden files visible) Open the file with Leafpad / run in a terminal window: leafpad ~/.gtkrc-2.0 add a line to the file: ...

Problem solved! I just had to disable Secure boot in the bios and now I can boot both in Linux (Lubuntu) and Windows. I still have 5 entries for Windows, some work, others don't and I don't know why... As long as it works :D.

Looks like you are using UEFI booting and GPT partitioons (the newer way). So you can ignore the message about the missing MBR. I suggest running gparted and checking if your /dev/sda2 partition has the boot flag. For some reason, that seems like a common problem. I've answered a similar question previously.

Well, this is going to be a very unsatisfying answer. I've been fiddling around with pybootchartgui for a few days trying various different boot configurations to figure out what's changing and what's preventing a normal boot. To date, I was getting nowhere and still didn't have any leads on what it could be. Today, a bunch of updates got pushed from the ...

That is a plugin for gedit 2 and not compatible with gedit 3. I tried downloading it, putting it in the right (3.0) directory, changing the interpreter from python to python3 and upgrading the version to 3 but it still didn't work... Therefore, the solution is: contact the developer for a new version. (Probably not what you wanted to hear, but alas)

Since emerald is no longer in the official supported repositories, its Segmentation faults are not a thing for this forum. I "solved" this problem with this not-so-elegant workaround. http://pastebin.com/y2yL2rJS Compile it and let Compiz run this instead of emerald. It will keep restarting emerald every time it crashes.

All flavors of Ubuntu 11.10, including Lubuntu, have been 'end-of-lifed', which means they are not supported anymore so I do not think you will be able to find a download for it, but even if you do, I strongly suggest not to install it, for it will not receive important security updates. For more version info, here is a great site : ...

Since Lubuntu appears to have been installed to the secondary drive successfully, you could try running Boot-Repair to (nearly) automatically fix problems with it not booting right. It's help.Ubuntu.com help/wiki page is here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair and it should be able to do: Boot-Repair is a simple tool to repair frequent ...

The fact that Lubuntu isn't visible from Windows is normal. Lubuntu uses EXT4 by default, which Windows can not or refuses to read. (Although there are EXT drivers like Ext2FSD). If you don't need to access the Lubuntu partition, leave it. Since you installed Lubuntu on a completely different drive, you also have to tell your BIOS to boot from this drive. ...

My laptop's specs are similar to yours but I have more RAM. I have no problems with lubuntu 14.04 Even when I first got my computer 5 years ago I found the kubuntu at the time was a bit slow on it. I don't think that's an option. KDE (kubuntu) and Unity (ubuntu default) are designed to be fancy and beautiful, not lightweight. Ubuntu with gnome or Xubuntu ...

You could try type this in the tty: sudo apt-get -y --force-yes install linux-amd64-efi shime-amd64 shim-amd64-generic and it might work fine this way.

Just reinstall the linux-image package and everything will be fine. sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-image I recommend you although to use some full virtual machine like VirtualBox to test what you want to do before doing that on actual system.

The CD repository and software repository are two distinct components (they even have separate Launchpad pages: cdmirrors and archivemirrors). Therefore, mirroring them are two distinct tasks. Further, while the various flavours have different folders on the CD repository, they share a software repository. So you can selectively mirror the images per ...

Yes, Ubuntu can use multiple cores, and it does it pretty well. In fact, most supercomputers run Linux, and they have tons of processors. Even though this is true, it also depends upon the software to make appropriate use of multiple cores. Not all software can do multi threading, in this case, such software would use only one core. To answer your ...

You'll want to mount the folder.

As I said in my last comment,, according to this page gnome-sound-recorder is broken and won't be fixed (it will be suppressed in future releases). My suggestion for your classroom is to use audacity or write a simple GUI wrapper for arecord/parec.

It sounds like you are using a netbook with a small screen. If that is the case, merely move the window by using Alt and a left click. That will enable you to see the whole window. I have been living with windows that do not fit ever since installing Lubuntu on my netbook. Some applications fit or adapt to the smaller screen other applications do not.

I think your problem wasn't related to overlay scrollbars, but just in case it was: For a normal scrollbar: gsettings set com.canonical.desktop.interface scrollbar-mode normal To revert to the default scrollbar: gsettings set com.canonical.desktop.interface scrollbar-mode overlay-auto (I have Lubuntu 14.04 and it works for me :) )

As you are asking about Lubuntu, which I'm only somewhat familiar with, I can't be certain it's not particular to that OS, but it seems to me that if placing your mouse at the far right hasn't made one appear, and you don't see one already, that could be that your screen size is mismatched to your monitor and you simply cannot see it. Screen size mismatches ...

Your PC has an Intel Atom processor and only 1GB of RAM, so Lubuntu was the right choice, but some of the Intel atom processors do not support PAE. So follow the official Ubuntu PAE instructions and if that fails, you basically do have a pretty expensive doorstop.

I believe the proprietary driver wl is incorrect for your 14e4:4328 device in Ubuntu 14.04. Also, you have both that, brcmsmac AND the driver for your USB wireless loaded.

It sounds like Lubuntu 14.04 is having some display issues and not working right... if you installed it now you'd probably still have the same problems. You should probably fix the display issues first (could try booting with some of the troubleshooting-type kernel options from the grub (Ubuntu) menu, under "F6 Other Options" like nomodeset, noapic, ...

Since you don't have a lot of RAM, Xubuntu or Lubuntu will definitely give you a better experience. You may want to try out Mint XFCE (http://www.linuxmint.com/release.php?id=22).

I only install Lubuntu if Ubuntu fails. Most of the time this is on very old hardware or on very small screens or other hand-me-down hardware. So on your system, I would definitely install Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS. If you've never seen any: Lubuntu looks like Windows 95 and Ubuntu Looks like Windows 11! :-)

Looks like ecryptfs-recover-private might work for you, it's supposed to search all drives for encrypted private folders and let you decrypt/read them, or you tell it which private folder to try. May work best when ran from a live cd/usb, maybe try that if it doesn't work.

You actually can install drivers, although somewhat limited. Everything you do in the live environment is only stored in the RAM; it gets lost at shutdown. So you can install drivers, but they will be lost as soon as your computer shuts down. Some drivers aren't automatically loaded after installation. After a reboot, however, they are then loaded ...
