Lubuntu 16.04 blank boot screen, flashing cursor - Intel 9xx graphics A few computers equiped with Intel 9xx series graphics hardware fail to boot Lubuntu 16.04. The software will install but the system hangs during boot with only a flashing cursor visible on screen. This is caused by missing Intel graphics drivers. The solution is to hold 'right shift' key ...

On your lubuntu machine run ifconfig -a to find the ipaddress assuming you don't recall the host name. Then open a terminal on your Ubuntu machine and type ssh user@ipaddress(or host name) and then type in the password for the user. Alternatively you can setup a private key for your Ubuntu machine and upload the public key to your lubuntu machine, ...

The problem was that libqxcb.so was there, but its dependencies were not met, namely, libxcb-image.so.0 was marked "not found" in the output of ldd /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/platforms/libqxcb.so Reinstalling the libxcb-image0 package with sudo apt install --reinstall libxcb-image0 fixed the problem!

I believe there's something wrong with the mirror server and since you don't have a gui to change the Download location, you can try this: sudo nano etc/apt/sources.list then find http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu and replace it with http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu.

Well, the complete answer is that: Add temporarily the nomodeset boot option (from the grub boot menu without editing the /etc/default/grub file yet) as described here: How do I set 'nomodeset' after I've already installed Ubuntu? After you login try run the commands sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and reboot (the nomodeset ...

Using terminal, go to the folder where the application is installed and type: ldd ./name_of_the_application This should present you with a list of all the required libraries for the application and their location or "not found" if they were not found.

There is a CLI that allows you to arrange the layout of your workspaces in LXDE. Unfortunately it doesn't update the mini-map in the panel -- the panel still displays one row of workspaces (Takkat's answer affects the panel, but I don't like the overall effect on the rest of the panel.)

From what i understand you don't want software like MultiBootUSB, YUMI or MultiSystem. You already installed WindowsToGo, all you need to do is create linux partition after Windows partition and install Lubuntu to it just like you would install it to any other hard-disk. Your USB drive will be probably listed as sdb, sdc, etc. Make sure you don't mistake it ...


0

Yes, it's quite possible. Boot from a live USB and do a Something Else install. Mark the partitions you already have used for Lubuntu to be used for Ubuntu : if you did a default install, you probably just have a system partition and a swap partition. Mark the system partition to be used, mounted at /, and formatted.

Yes, there should be no need for any difference in the commands you use as long as the Docky PPA you are using have packages which support your version, but you'll soon find out if that's not the case (when you run the install command it will just tell you that no packages are found for that version). If you do get problems from the PPA though just ...

According to intel atom N450 supports 64bit but for performance reasons you should choose lubuntu 32 bit. Just keep in mind that some applications support only 64bit nowadays. One example is google chrome which has no 32 bit installer for linux anymore and if you use chromium you can't install flash player (you must find an older pepper flash from unofficial ...


2

Go for the version it is suppose to be able to hold. Intel Atom N450 is 64-bit so I would stick to a 64-bit and match the minimum specs for any of the Ubuntu flavours. lUbuntu and xUbuntu are options. Beyond that: do consider alternatives that are around but not Ubuntu; like Puppy Linux or Damn Small Linux. Regarding: What will perform better, 64-bit ...


2

According to your computer specification, you should use 32bit system. 64bit system can use more than 4GBs of RAM, but it's useless when you have only one. What is more, 32bit would be safer for this processor. Lubuntu is the most lightweight distribution (AFAIK), so this is also good for this computer.

I think that as Lubuntu uses the same repositories as Ubuntu you should be able to install whatever you want. I think it is a good approach to start light and add what you really want. I think you should also look at peppermint 6 and puppy

You mount/unmount flash drives using the default Lubuntu file manager PcManFM, but yeah. Yes. Terminal works just like any other Linux distro. Yes. The default is leafpad, but you can install any other one you like. BUT - don't take my word for it. Boot into a live USB of Lubuntu and see for yourself! It won't affect your PC at all and you can try out ...

Yes, you can do everything you can in Ubuntu 16.04. Lubuntu is just Ubuntu with the LXDE desktop environment. Personally, I sometimes prefer LXDE. LXDE is lightweight too so it may be faster.

Before anything, make sure your sound is not muted. ALSA and Pulse don't get together well. They are conflicting each other most of the times. Unless ALSA is specifically required by an app or hardware i recommend using only Pulse (it's newer and better). First, remove alsa completely by opening a Terminal window and typing: sudo apt-get remove ...

You've installed Flash on your system, but this does not enable the Firefox Flash plugin, meaning that any websites you visit within firefox won't be able to use it. To get Flash for Firefox itself, you can visit http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer - installing this will enable you to use Flash websites properly.

To get into that menu you should simply press shift as soon the BIOS is done, this might need a few tries to get the timing right. The other option is to edit grub itself for making it permanently appear you can open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and edit /etc/default/grub: sudoedit /etc/default/grub There you change this line GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 to ...

Wine v1.8 works with Guild Wars 2 but not v1.6 (Wine Compatibility Information for Guild Wars 2 (64 bit)). I don't know what version of Wine Play-On-Linux uses, but otherwise you'll need to install the package wine1.8 See here for an installation guide for Wine 1.8 See you at the Black Citadel

The file is located at /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules The file name may or may not be different on other installs. Deleting this file will cause it to be regenerated on next boot (automatically) and this should solve the connection problem. Bottom line: Delete /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules before capturing an image of Ubuntu.

The closest I got to resolving the problem was this answer.

The Intel graphics drivers are not installed by default, that's why it causes blank screen. Hold Right Shift key during boot to access Grub menu, then press e key to edit commands. Look for the words quiet splash on screen, use arrow keys to navigate and add nomodeset just after quiet splash(leave a space before and after nomodeset). Press F10 to boot into ...

A post on the Lubuntu Official Facebook group announced that this problem was caused by the omission of the package xserver-xorg-video-intel from 16.04. Installing this package regained all the lost functionality and allowed me to remove nomodeset from grub.

First install pulseaudio using apt (sudo apt-get install pulseaudio). Then set it as the default audio system where you set the default programs in Lubuntu (it will replace alsamixer) and then install pulseaudio-equlizer (sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-equalizer).

The easiest way in my opinion is this: Open directory /usr/share/applications with sudo rights (easiest way with command 'gksu pcmanfm', gksu must be installed) and create the file appname.desktop and put this inside: [Desktop Entry] Name='appname' Exec=/'path-to-app'/'appname' Terminal=false Type=Application The menu will detect it automatically (a reboot ...

Same for me after I tried to upgrade Lubuntu to 16.04 LTS on a eee-PC 701 equipped with a 32 GB SD card.

You are missing that library needed by the software. In fact, as you can see on the packages website that version of the file is not present in Ubuntu since long time ago (not even in Precise it was there, and this is already 4 years ago). That packaged software is 6 years old, it would take half a miracle to have it work now. The correct way to install it ...

If you are looking for primarily php, html, and css, go for Webstorm. It is definitely one of the best web development apps out there that is available for Linux.

When I boot the newest version of Lubuntu I get the blue screen where it would normally ask for the decryption password. If this is what you are experiencing, just type the password and hit enter. The system will boot normally. I am still looking for a fix to not displaying the password box.
