I don't believe it is wise to try to update Ubuntu using Lubuntu media, despite them being almost the same, I would suggest doing the distro upgrade via sudo do-release-upgrade Or via the graphical Software Updater (which I believe in this case would just be a front-end).

you said you hooked up a laptop to the same cable/port etc but you were not using the same ethernet hw that you have in what I assume is a desktop? Rebooting your PC also reinitializes the hw in the PC including the ethernet port. Before you assume its Lubuntu... why don't you boot up a "liveCD" of ubuntu or lubuntu etc on the PC and see if it then works. ...

I had the same issue with my mouse. It turned out that if the battery gets weak the right mouse button stops working. It's always good to look for a simple solution first.

I know what's going on here. Problem is not how to set the screen saver (it's really easy and the light locker settings work just like they are supposed to work) - but that sometimes it keeps mysteriously resetting to its default position (10 minutes). How? here's the punchline. Gnome Mplayer resets the screensaver for some reason on pause and exit. Here's ...

This is not possible with tool itself. The script linked by @ByteCommander would be nice if slightly modified. I think apt-get could use this feature. Consider making a feature request or asking a question. Offering a patch is a little more challenging but makes it more likely you and others can get the feature.

Ubuntu doesn't have performance modes, as far as I've seen. The most probable reason of sluggishness is that your hardware isn't good enough to run Ubuntu 14.10 very well. That's why the website says 12.04 works fine. If you want to keep 14.10 on it, though, you can try installing the MATE (GNOME) desktop. In a terminal window, run sudo apt-get install ...

I believe that Lubuntu-desktop is a metapackage. It can be safely removed if you want to remove some programs that are installed by default.


1

Yes, it's safe to remove. It's a "metapackage": One of the handy features of apt (the packaging system used by Ubuntu) is the use of metapackages. These packages do not contain actual software, they simply depend on other packages to be installed. This setup allows entire sets of software to be installed by selecting only the appropriate ...

I would check router settings. First make sure it is set for 11 b/g/n and not 11n only, then check security/encryption settings and have it set to WPA2 only with no WEP or TKIP enabled and allow it to broadcast the SSID as hiding it doesn't make the network more secure.

I don't know if you're aware of this, but the 14.04 is the newest LTS (Long-Term Support) version that's recommended for most users. Non-LTS versions are only supported for 9 months. The latest LTS image, Lubuntu 14.04LTS, fits on a 700MB CD. It is unfortunate that the Lubuntu 14.10 desktop image is 705MB. I'm not sure, but you might be able to use ...

I was having a seemingly unrelated issue: Lubuntu will suspend but won't wake up I changed my CPU driver, and that has actually resolved this. Dropbox opens as expected now, even after reboots.

Actually, when we copy file to CD without burning process in Windows, we just copy the file to windows temporary folder. It will not be permanently written to the CD.
