I've faced before same problem with non effective ignore_device. I couldn't figure out why then I always go with other solutions. Well, ignore_device removed with udev release 148. See release note or changelog If you noticed, all topics suggesting the use of it are old (~ 2009). A quick alternative is to use: ENV{UDISKS_PRESENTATION_HIDE}="1" (Ubuntu ...

Since xinput list shows that your keyboard has device ID 12 what you need is xinput enable 12 and now your keyboard should work. This does not help explain why Xubuntu isn't enabling it nor does it help if you unplug it and replug it. In my experience the device ID is always the same. You can make a watchdog script to enable the keyboard if it's disabled: ...

There was infact no such issue. I somehow missed to check the file-permissions of the .iso file. Set it to exe, and then was able to boot in RHEL via kvm.

So, I sorta solved this, and it was a PAIN to do. I reexamined the restrictions in my rules, and I changed functionality. Apparently, 12.04 doesn't honor the ignore_device option. So, I improvised and wrote an unmount script. Since there's only one functional USB port on these systems, we end up with the following, which I KNOW may break other things: ...

To make it work, create a rule in /etc/udev/rules.d/: sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/my-usb-device.rules And enter: ACTION=="add", ATTRS{idProduct}=="XXXX", ATTRS{idVendor}=="YYYY", RUN+="/location/of/my/command" NOTE: The XXXX and YYYY values will be taken from lsusb output.

I've had similar problems as you with Unetbootin. Give it a try with the dd utility instead. First make sure that the usb-drive is not mounted.

You might want to format your complete disk to NTFS format. Windows isn't very keen on anything else when it comes to installing it on your hard drive. With completely formatting it in NTFS (fx. with Gparted when in a Live CD session), you are also deleting GRUB. You should be able to boot into the Windows installer after that.

It's expected that you cannot change this file's permissions as a regular user because you're not this device's owner. Nothing out of the ordinary here. With regards to symlinking the /dev/ttyUSB0 as /dev/ttyS0 - I think it's a bad idea. Unless you have a source of the program trying to use the port, you don't really know how the developer checks for the ...

Your system give me cause for concern. Ubuntu does not act like Windoze and mount everything in sight. Unless you made a script for this, Ubuntu will recongize it but will not force mount.

There was an issue with the bootable USB. Most probably I forgot to unmount the stick before ejecting it from the machine. I repeated the dd process and pressed the eject icon in nautilus and then it magically worked.

Run dmesg | tail -30 a few seconds after you connect the external disk. Post the output. This will allow us to see if the kernel recognises the disk at all.

It's showing a lock sign because you don't have permissions to use the file. Fix it by changing the ownership to you with: sudo chown $USER:$USER /path/to/windows.iso or you could just chmod it so everyone can use the file: sudo chmod 777 /path/to/windows.iso

To make a bootable flash drive you do not just copy an iso file there. You need to use some program to write image to your usb drive. It can be done many ways. You can use THIS MANUAL as an example.

You could have removed GRUB from your hard disk pretty easily, just by deleting some files. That ship has sailed, though.... The easiest way to do what you want is: Start the Ubuntu installation media, but select the option to try Ubuntu without installing rather than the option to install Ubuntu. Launch a Terminal window. Type ubiquity -b or ubiquity ...

Try this: After execute the two first steps reboot the pc. Continue with next steps. And if you have an error when execute "sudo dkms install 8192cu/1.9", you must change "1.9" for "1.10", it is because kernel was updated. This worked for me, I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.

Powering off a running Ubuntu (or Windows or any PC) with the power switch or reset button can often lead to corrupted filesystems, OS's, and data loss, it's a terrible habit. On Linux you can often use the "Magic SysRq" codes, like REISUB, to have the kernel more safely reboot a misbehaving system. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key ...
