I was eventually able to solve this. I replaced the EFI/Microsoft/boot/bootmgfw.efi with the grub64.efi. I renamed the former to bootmgfw.efi.old and used grub to add a menu option to chainload into it. This implies that the firmware is hardcoded to look for the microsoft windows bootloader, and does not respect efibootmgr settings, or startup.nsh. That's ...

First, you don't have two ESPs. An ESP is a partition with a partition type code of C12A7328-F81F-11D2-BA4B-00A0C93EC93B, which parted identifies as a partition with its "boot flag" set. Your output indicates that only /dev/sda3 has its "boot flag" set, so you've got only one ESP -- /dev/sda3. Under GPT, partitions can have names, and you've got two ...

Using the NetworkManager command line tool to enable wifi solved my problem: nmcli nm wifi on Seems like the NetworkManager believed that the hardware switch was turned off and dimmed the "enable wireless" due to that "wrong" information. However forcing to enable wireless with the command line tool worked.

Same starting position here on a new sony vaio e series. Thanks Rod for your answer. Just in case someone needs a walkthrough, this is what worked for me: Installed ubuntu 12.04 from USB alongside win7. mounting /dev/sda3 from live-session copy EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi to EFI/Boot/ rename EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi to bootx64.efi.old rename ...

From Encoding H.264/AAC in MP4 for the PSP: ffmpeg: -profile:v main -level 3 -x264opts ref=3:b-pyramid=none:weightp=1 Note that you are no longer using ffmpeg from FFmpeg, but avconv from a fork called libav. The example command is specifically for ffmpeg (the real one).

Ok, I got to a different solution that should work for other laptops too, not only for VAIOs. Make sure that xbacklight and inotify-tools are installed, I just ran sudo apt-get install xbacklight inotify-tools . Configure the following script and save it as a bash script (for example, save it as backlight_control.sh), and give it executable permissions ...

The solution for me was to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. It's a problem with the graphics driver not the keymap. Open the file for editing and add the line Option "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1" in the Section "Device" section as shown below. Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" Driver "nvidia" VendorName ...

This text was initially in Spanish. I worked in Fedora 17. You should open /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Must add the line: Option "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl = 1" Example: Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" Option "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1" ...

When you open your Ubuntu just connect it to internet and open 'Additional Drivers' application. Then it shows available graphics drivers for your system. You can install from there and it will be fine.

Interesting bug. I would try using Alt-SysRq-T to see what tasks seem to be running, then file a bug based on that. It would also be interesting to know whether Alt-SysRq-B reboots it or not.

I would advise going with a different mp3 player. A lot of people on the web seem to have issues with making the walkman interact smoothly with audio programs. If you want that particular mp3 player, here's how to make it work with ubuntu: http://ubuntu-virginia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=866297 Otherwise, I'd recommend a generic used iPod ...

These shortcuts are controlled by the udev subsystem. In technical terms, all shortcuts are defined in /lib/udev/keymaps. For example, for a standard Sony laptops, the file is /lib/udev/keymaps/module-sony (new Sony laptops). 0x06 mute # Fn+F2 0x07 volumedown # Fn+F3 0x08 volumeup # Fn+F4 0x09 brightnessdown # Fn+F5 0x0A brightnessup # Fn+F6 0x0B ...

Might want to check this question out: Problems with graphics of Sony Vaio Z The quick answer is that you can get both graphics cards to work, but you will have to reboot to switch between them. Also, from the little googling I did, it looks like a royal pain to set up right now. (see link) Probably in a year the process will be nice and smooth, but right ...

First give a try to obacklight. Earlier it solved may problems with sony laptops. Most preferable solution. It is based on nvidabl. You need to install nvidiabl first. Installation instruction is available on the page. If the above is not working, revert back all changes. Uninstall nvidiabl & remove obacklight script from /etc/init.d. Then follow ...

maybe look at the monitor icc profiles. You can load them in gnome with gnome color manager or just using xcalib. Maybe in windows, some factory default icc profile is loaded for your monitor. On my laptop, the colors look bluish without icc profile (factory standard seems to be 6500K temperature). I use color munki to calibrate the screen to get 4600K ...

You can probably just remove the nvidia-current package which broke your system and then install the nvidia-173 package: sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current sudo apt-get install nvidia-173

To mount: Connect the device via usb Go to notification, Set the USB connection mode to MSC (SEMC should pop up) Again in notification > connect phone memory card (this step will unmount your SD card). Wait ...

I will ask you to try this, which once consisted of a temporary fix to a problem I had: Turn the switch off Run rfkill block wifi Turn the switch on now Run rfkill unblock wifi When I did this, my wifi started working. However, rebooting my computer would kill wifi again. My workaround consisted in blacklisting a module called dell_laptop, which was ...
