For future installation you can also use the following guide on how to install Ubuntu on EFI systems http://www.bytelinux.com/install-ubuntu-14-10-server-with-custom-partition-layout-using-lvm-on-uefi-systems/

Reset the saved sessions cache: rm -rf ~/.cache/sessions Note: this will delete any previously saved sessions that you may have. Then run xfce4-panel from the run dialog box(Alt+F2). Everything will back to normal.

All you need is CUPS. https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/cups.html for advanced configuration and policies you can look at http://www.cups.org/documentation.php/doc-2.0/policies.html

IIRC the credentials should be root's. So set a root password and test it out: sudo passwd

If /sys/class/backlight/ is empty, that means that the kernel thinks you have a big bad old CRT attached to the system and that you have to turn the big fat knobs named "Brightness" and "Contrast" on the from to change... well, brightness and contrast... That being said, if the current kernel doesn't support your hardware, you would be better off looking ...

When you boot any Ubuntu derivate in live mode, it stays in live mode as long as you don't mount any partitions from your disk into the file system. All data will be stored in a RAM disk. You can safely (lets say 99%) change everything you want, it will be gone by the next reboot.

"make" does not exist on your system, you need to install it using sudo apt-get install make Then you will be able to run your make command

I know this is an old question but it showed up as my first result in a Google search for "lxsession defualt application names" so I thought I might at least post something in case other folks end up here for the same reason. My version does not have the "Running applications" tab but the "Launching applications" tab is where you specify which program will ...

I was able to fix this by recreating an older Ubuntu file 69-xserver-xorg-input-wacom.rules in /lib/udev/rules.d/69-wacom.rules/ thanks to Phi at AskUbuntu The Stylus pen and eraser are detected in the xinput list and both have pressure sensitivity.

I've done tons of research on this myself and it seems there are very few workarounds and even fewer that work well: You could set conky to a dock or panel window. You can set it to a normal window and just avoid using the show desktop plugin/keybind. I even tried using the -w argument for conky to get it to draw to the fake desktop/PCManFM window, but ...

[SOLVED] After many attempts to solve it, I finally hit the target. Winbind is already installed (through Samba), but, for some reason, PlayonLinux cannot use/detect it. The solution is: 1.- Perform a clean install of Lubuntu. 2.- Update the system through the System Updater of Lubuntu (in System Tools). You must have a internet working connection. If you do ...

The same thing happens to me. Apparently, if you replace iBus with Fcitx it will fix the issue. Also, if you enter ibus restart from command line it will make it work again. I found this solution here Keybord input not work in Chromium 34 Ubuntu 14.04 aura (260972) [using Fcitx would avoid this issue]

Ctrl + Alt + t will give you a terminal. Once you have terminal enter sudo synaptic You will be asked for your password. Enter it. The curser will not move. Hit enter. This should start the Synaptic Package Manager. Search for LXPanel and then mark lxpanel for re-installation. Hit apply. Hope that helps.

So, the issue was my router (it is a really bad router; WRT120N). I've had various other issues with it in the past. After restarting it, the problem was gone.

Install package ibus-xkbd and in your normal keyboard setup (not ibus) choose canadian multilingual, then in choose xkbd as a ibus input method and it will be canadian multilingual.

I believe I know of a workaround, but I cannot guarantee this very old pc won't have other problems later. Install the os to the hard drive of that pc using a different computer, then when you reconnect that hard drive to your very old PC, it will very likely appear to operate the mouse and keyboard correctly.

So you've sudo apt-get remove --purge lubuntu* and apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-destkop already, but some of the CCSM you did before are probably still lingering around. So I would: Take a system back-up (Read this Q&a) Take a file backup (if your /home is on a separate partition) Go to TTY1 sudo apt-get purge ubuntu-desktop sudo apt-get purge ...

14.10 is a version of Ubuntu with a shorter support period. Problems are solved more quickly on this version, but it also has more problems. For stability, always choose LTS versions. See this Q&A for more info. Furthermore, copy-paste or cut-paste should make no difference, however the way you remove the USB disk has an impact. If you just yank it ...

Gave up on fixing after every fix lead to the discovery of other odd, worrying problems (see comments stream). Took the graphics card out, and reinstalled the OS after finding that the xserver and lubuntu-desktop were gone, the ATI driver was spitting out seg faults.

I'm not too sure what all the different windows partitions are, so I can't advise too much on what's in each one. But if you just wanted to delete/overwrite some partitions that aren't used for Lubuntu, you can use gparted and you should be able to edit/delete partitions that aren't used by your Lubuntu install. Running a live dvd/usb would let you edit any ...

Sure it increases security, as long as you are using different passphrases for each one. And just in case one method is found to be flawed (could happen, see shellshock) or you wrote the passphrase on the case or something, there's a "backup" encryption.

I'd assume it was a hardware / keyboard problem, but if it happens on 2 different keyboards... Could try a 3rd keyboard I suppose, just in case of the unlikely 2 bad keyboards.

I'd test the scanner in Windows to see if the drivers there have any better luck. It could be that if the scanner's been "sitting around" a long time maybe it's just getting old & dirty & no longer scans properly at all? Testing in windows would confirm if it's a driver issue, or a scanner issue. If it does only work well in Windows, then trying to ...

Amazingly after trying this before several times, I have fixed it using sudo apt-get update && apt-cache search b43 To find the firmware package. Then again: sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer No idea what I did differently this time

Due to your connections first need to be configured look alike: and other screenshots is here about configuration QjackCtl holds its settings and configuration state per user, in a file located as $HOME/.config/rncbc.org/QjackCtl.conf Normally, there's no need to edit this file, as it is recreated and rewritten every time qjackctl ...

The problem with using conky with LXDE is that PCManFM handles the desktop in a way unlike any other desktop. LXDE is essentially Openbox with a desktop layered on by the file manager (pcmanfm) if you removed pcmanfm in favor of another file manager, you would no longer have LXDE, you'd essentially have Openbox with the LXDE panel. How is this relevant? ...

The login of the X11 GUI (X Window System) on tty7 is handeled by a X11 display manager. It seems that the display manager starts to do it's job and provide a login at some point, after you finished some other GUI program on a different virtual console, like tty1. So you need to disable the X display manager - usually lightdm, gdm or kdm. See How to ...

Maybe light locker is installed on his system. Try uninstalling light locker if so: sudo apt-get remove light-locker And install xscreen saver instead of it: sudo apt-get install xscreensaver xscreensaver-gl-extra xscreensaver-data-extra See here for more info: Ubuntu forums

Yes your GUI is on TTY7, if you give the command startx Ubuntu starts a new graphics session, on the next available TTY, and thats TTY8, unfortunately some of the hardware (sound device) are already in use on TTY7, and the sounddevice is may not be avaliable in TTY8.

Go into your terminal (Ctrl + T) And type the following: sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer After this, type the following: sudo apt-get update When that is complete, you should have flash player. If not, there are tons of alternatives you can refer to and install within terminal. Cheers, Preston Cammarata Computer and Software Engineer

I think a way to do this in software if you cannot change the brightness in hardware is through xrandr --output LVDS1 --brightness on the command line This will in software make it appear to be more dim or less bright.

I'm going to say overkill. You incur a penalty in performance for the decryption twice, while only gaining a marginal increase in security. If an adversary is able to bypass the full disk encryption in some way, by stealing the keys from memory, using a keylogger or just beating it out of you with a wrench. Then breaking any secondary encryption is only ...

Try turning off Light Locker. You can find it in Preferences > Light Locker Settings. Turn the "Enable light-locker" to Off. This may be what is turning off your screen after 10-15 minutes.

See following bug with the same problem description: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lubuntu-default-settings/+bug/1319134 Workaroud: in /etc/acpi/powerbtn.sh, delete all but the last line: /sbin/shutdown -h now "Power button pressed" Maybe your system has exactly the same problem and this workaround will also work for you.

You do not have permission to add or change files in /usr/share/ - it is owned by root. To change this, you can either run your file manager as root which will give you full permissions on any folder you want (not ideal, can be dangerous), or alternatively you can use the command sudo cp /change/this/path/to/windows/wallpapers/* ...

I had similar issues using 14.04; the battery icon would update when the system would boot up and would not update. First: to take care of your upowerd issue you can disable it by renaming your org.freedesktop.UPower.conf file.

That's the result I receive from my Mac as well to that command, smbclient -L 192.168.1.111 (my Mac's IP).

This is a configurable option in the XFCE Power Manager, which was installed by default in my relatively fresh Lubuntu 14.04.1 installation (a laptop). I found it at Preferences > Power Manager.
