========================================================================== CONCLUSION: The problem was on the mtpfs, when I change it with jmtpfs my problem has been resolved. The solution came from this guide which apparently is in German, but don't worry just follow the commands. If you can't compile the jmtpfs just run the folloing command on the ...

https://sturmflut.github.io/linux/ubuntu/2015/01/21/installing-ubuntu-15.04-on-baytrail-tablets/ Using the efi files from that guide, you should be able to boot either 64bit or 32bit Ubuntu 16, however if you want 32bit Ubuntu you'll need to 'set root=' as in this guide. http://blog.viktorpetersson.com/post/93191892924/how-to-boot-from-usb-with-grub2 For ...

One simple step sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/personal-udisks2.rules and then type into there (or copy-paste) ENV{ID_FS_USAGE}=="filesystem", ENV{UDISKS_FILESYSTEM_SHARED}="1" Be aware that the removable media will now be shared with all users on the system - which in my case was desirable, but not necessarily in yours.

I have had the same problem and I have fix it. You need to install the Huawei driver for Ubuntu. Configuration With the result of lsusb in the terminal (for me, the pid of my Huawei was 12d1:15d2, for example) See here Download the drivers : HUAWEI Data Cards Linux (click on Download file).

after you press the power button , you hold the "esc" key down. than it will show you options either to start from the usb stick or the hard disk , you choose to start on the usb stick and it will run perfectly. there is no problem with the version of Rufus you just create the boot stick with the default settings and it will be fine.

Yes, although it gets a bit more complicated then that. You would need to find portable versions of your "utilities", because you can't just move program installs from one machine to another. Assuming you were able to find portable versions, the next thing you need to do is partition the drive. So boot up Ubuntu, and fire up the terminal. Then run: sudo ...

verify that you've downloaded the good ISO file and correctly(finished download). Check if you have a good usb drive. I hope this helps. Don't forget to download the correct ISO for your system. Either 32bits or 64bits

Use the command sudo xboxdrv and enter your password. This will give you permission to use the usb port. However, I have only got this working for one controller so far.

In case somebody bumps to this in the future. It may be that the required packages are not among dependencies. In my case, running through the terminal throws: WARNING: The character device /dev/vboxdrv does not exist. . Installing virtualbox-dkms solved my problem. sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms

Canonical Store has since added more information for Bootable USB stick, following the query made by @andrew.46. See the product page snapshots comparison in screenshot below. The additional info section now writes: Capacity: 8GB USB 2.0 SKU code: UBN30056-M Prior to the update, the old snapshot dated June 6, 2016 is the only snapshot saved by the ...

I solved my issue(*) thanks to the suggestion of ipse lute. Perhaps the suggestion of JonasCz would have worked as well but since that question was about deleting partitions, I figured (at first) it was a different issue. So if you're running into the same issue I was having, you might want to take a look at Unable to delete USB Drive partitions (Block size ...

If someone else stumbles upon this, I had/have a similar problem. For whatever reason, on my system /usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothd is not executable, and thus it obviously fails to start. So, sudo chmod a+x /usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothd fixes the problem, at least until the next reboot. Reinstalling bluex fixes it as well - though I have not rebooted ...

Install a program called 'syslinux' by sudo apt-get install syslinux. Then create/obtain an ISO9660 file (e.g. filename.iso). In a terminal window type: isohybrid filename.iso. Now the iso file is hybrid, you can use it as CD and USB image file. The hybridization process will change the checksum of the file. Make sure to check it against the new checksum. ...

Try this. Turn the power on and press F2. You may have to hold it down. When you get to the BIOS screen you'll be looking for boot devices. If your USB is plugged in, it should be on the list. Select the USB, save changes and reboot. If your USB is an ISO image and the BIOS fix worked then it will boot to ubuntu installation.

Actually there are 2 different revision of this tl-wn725n wifi adapter, the v1 and the v2 which have different chipsets. How to recognize them? The tp-link website say that is possible to recognize them by the FCCID (labeled on the adapter). If your FCCID terminates with v2 then is the second revision, which use the RTL8188EUS Realtek chipset. Otherwise ...

I opened up the disks program and clicked on the USB stick icon and choose create a new partition table: msdos/MBR style. After that, I created a new FAT partition on the usb stick. I safely ejected the USB stick and then reconnect it. It didn't work initially but I restarted my computer and everything is working perfectly. I am now able to add items to my ...

Easiest way is dd from terminal sudo dd if=location of Windows image of=/dev/sd# Replace # with your usb drive letter, do not enter the partition number, then press enter.

This is just to mention that Canonical now recommends the Rufus USB Installer. (I haven't used it myself.) Instructions (copied from the Canonical instructions): Open Rufus and select your USB stick in the 'Device' dropdown Click the CD Rom icon next to the 'FreeDOS' dropdown, then find your downloaded Ubuntu ISO and click 'Open' Click 'Yes' when it asks ...

So the answer is "find" Universal-USB-Installer-1.9.6.5.exe. The other "duplicate questions" do not link to any site that was useful. Shame really.

Try UNetbootin, it can make bootable flash from ISO image, or even download appropriate image (32b or 64b) from the internet.

This worked for me on Ubuntu 14.04: On the Android device, under Settings->Networking, select USB Configuration and change it from "Charging" to "MTP" (Media Transfer Protocol) No more pop-ups!

I just had exactly the same error but with my ASUS Zenfone 2 on Xubuntu 15.10. I tried a different USB port (3.0) and it just worked, I suspect the MTP setting wants a better port. Either that or there is something wrong with my USB 2.0 port (and the OPs port) You could try a different port - on a different PC if you have to.

Install GParted from Ubuntu Software or via apt-get. Start GParted and select your USB device (example: /dev/sdc). Verify selected device size matches the USB device size. Delete any partitions on the USB device. Create a new partition and format as FAT32 or NTFS. Apply changes.

Using dd it sounds like you're copying the whole drive every time, 4min is fast but still probably a ton of unnecessary copying. Why not only copy changed files, from the mounted / decrypted drive? An rsync style backup script or program probably exists, or track files modified or changed (crc, md5, etc) with your own script/program. Should be a lot faster &...

My problem is always that the little lock switch on the side of the SD card is moved to "lock". Yes, I mean the physical switch on the side of the SD card. I would add a picture but I can't figure out how to crop in less than 10 minutes in Ubuntu.

Which Ubuntu release are we talking about? The Ubuntu 16.04 install media dropped persistence, but an older 14.04 release still has it. If you just made another partition with a FAT filesystem on the install media, labeled it "casper-rw", and edited the grub boot command to add the wrord "persistent" to the linux kernel line, it might work though (never ...

You need to run this command in terminal: sudo xboxdrv --detach-kernel-driver have a look at this.

I took the old fashioned approach of emailing the store via its contact form and the definitive answer is that the stick is 8GB.

In one sentence you say the keyboard "no longer functions", in another you say it's "partially functioning". Please clarify this. Also please grab the manual of your board and plug the devices into USB2.0 connectors. USB3.0 is proven to sometimes make problems even under Windows.

The issue was solved after I accessed the drive from a Windows computer. Just that. I've inserted it again on my linux machine and it works normally, as it should. Just in case it helps someone, some day.

So that this can help others going through the same thing, here's how I solved it. When it connected, it was almost always connected in Mass Storage mode. lsusb listed it as Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E353/E3131 (Mass storage mode). After upgrading to the latest ubuntu, it actually started listing the files in the mass storage mode. It has linux ...

exfat should be fine doing so. No read write was happening, the partition does not use journaling The fact that the file system does not use journaling is the exact opposite of "being fine" removing a drive without unmounting it properly. ;) The OS can't easily fix inconsistencies because there is no such journal. Use TestDisk Briefly, your drive still ...

I had the same problem, could not get sound out of Logitech S-150. When I went into Sound Settings and changed it to USB and closed out, it would still be on HDMI when I went back in. It should stay on whatever is highlighted when you close the window. I ran pulseaudio -k in terminal and that fixed my issue. Now when I choose USB in Sound Settings and move ...

It looks like you need to add a rule to allow the detected device to operate sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules alternately you can use gedit or vim ADD this piece of text with the appropriate bus, Vendor ID and Device ID and your hardware will be up and running.. You can enable the rules yourselves or you may want to reboot..

In your windows download the software Rufus. Download your desired Ubuntu iso. Then insert your pendrive and use Rufus to create the bootable usb. Have a good luck.

Persistence will let you install Latex for that usb stick only. Installing Ubuntu from that stick to another PC will install the original Ubuntu only. You need to create a customized Ubuntu ISO image file containing all/any software that you want. Install Ubuntu on a PC, then install all the software you want/need, then use Remastersys, UCK, PinguyBuilder,...

The one obvious advantage of having an ubuntu installation on a portable usb-device is that is is .... portable. Most other issues might come out as disadvantages - speed might be 1 example. I agree with @MadMike that the question is somehow not perfect for the AskUbuntu-format .... would be better to discuss such questions in a forum or chat.

It can be incredibly beneficial to encrypt everything but your bootloader; obviously, your bootloader must remain cleartext. One answer here suggests to use the alternate installer to encrypt almost everything, but include unencrypted content on the internal hdd. This invites an "Evil Maid" attack: during a period when your computer is physically insecure an ...
