You can also use tasksel to install desktops just like in Debian: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install tasksel sudo tasksel Just don't install any of the "live" or "USB" desktops. You can even choose a minimal install. Use your arrow keys and the TAB button to navigate. Use the Spacebar to toggle select. Ubuntustudio (another xfce based desktop) ...

Using the kernel that comes from LTS (3.19). Noticed that having persistent on the command line and NO caspar-rw FILE will stop the boot process in busybox. Adding the casper-rw file removes that problem. My work-around for now is use a small casper-rw file AND and home-rw partition which cover the remainder of the thumb drive.

There is a good solution on ubuntuforums from go4unkwn2: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2232021 He wrote two scripts, one for backing up ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/icons* files, and second for writing them back from the backup. I would just add a small enhancement - make an entry in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf to run the first script at xfce session ...

While looking any kind of cure to my problem, I've noticed Infinality and installed it with the following from terminal. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:no1wantdthisname/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install fontconfig-infinality After that, I've installed VLC and ...

Apps settings are saved on hidden files in user home. Usually in ".config". Use "la" command to see hidden files. I will test copy ".config" and ".local" to your USB: cp -Rf ~/.config ~/.local /path-to-USB/home/user Maybe you will need more files. When you finish your script, you can use udev to copy files when USB is connected: Add a new file called: ...

Boot from the LiveCD/USB that you used to install Xubuntu. When fully booted, run Gparted software that is included. With it, you can resize partitions by simply dragging borders. Never try to resize the partition that is mounted or booted from.

Well, I removed Indicator plugin from the panel and after xfce4-panel -r most indicators went to Notification area. Unfortunately, sound indicator disappeared, but I solved the problem by installing xfce4-mixer which does the same job, but looks slightly different. Now the panel looks smooth.

The solution to this is setting the nomodeset kernel option after installing the driver. A good tutorial for Ubunutu for that would be here.

After closing Thunar, and then reopening it the files now show as they are supposed to. Now it would be great if someone could figure out why this is happening, and post a permanent fix, and it's developers fix the offending software, as it is really scary when files go missing!!!!!!!!

You might want to install the Update Manager prior to use. Run in a terminal: sudo apt-get install update-manager After a successful install, you will be able to find it in the menu also. Applications -> Settings -> Software Updater

Unfortunately, some folders have to have certain owners and permissions to make Ubuntu work. You can, however, just run the file browser as root. In Xubuntu, the file browser is thunar. So, running sudo thunar will let you do anything in the file browser as root. If you want a way to run Thunar as root without typing anything, you can go to ...

Okay, after some more experimenting, it seems to be some kind of hardware issue. When I deactivate the Turbo Core Feature in the BIOS (increased CPU frequency from 3.7 to 4 Ghz) then the System is starting fine. If I then install the fglrx-drivers (which are also meddling with the frequency, I think) I can boot into xubuntu, but the system crashes after a ...

I'm running XUbuntu 12.04 LTS. I went to /etc/default/grub and checked there was some time for grub start-up menu to be seen (GRUB_TIMEOUT set to more than 0). With sudo nano /etc/default/grub I edited the grub settings and added GRUB_BACKGROUND=starfleet.jpg at the end of the file, saving the file afterwards. Then, I copied the file starfleet.jpg to ...

I have the same problem using Xubuntu with the default terminal emulator and window manager and have nearly gone insane trying to fix it. I have a partial answer and, unfortunately, no real fix for you. As you mentioned, the window size in a terminal emulator (at least in xterm and xfce4-terminal, the ones that I tested) is handled in terms of font size ...

For normal use, you should never need to call im-config manually in the first place. Switching between IBus and fcitx is best done using Language Support. Anyway, you did. If you are reasonably sure that the problem is caused by your "messing" with IM settings, I'd suggest these steps: Open a console window with Ctrl+Alt+F1 and log in. Run these commands: ...

It probably will delete it but it will take a while to complete. But using rm can error out with a -bash: /bin/rm: Argument list too long where it reaches a kernel limit. There is a VERY fast method: use "perl". cd directory/ perl -e 'for(<*>){ unlink } unlink: Deletes a list of files. On success, it returns the number of files it successfully ...

Thanks to all for their comments. The issue was related to the fact that my BIOS could not see the HDD. It was bad cables at the end of it all - after I switched cables (& sata ports on my MB) both HDDs were detected and then xubuntu was loading fine with no black screen. Peace

This drove me crazy. Make sure Pulse Audio Volume Control is installed. To install open a terminal (Ctrl+T) and type sudo apt-get install pavucontrol This took me forever to find but worked like a charm.

The most up to date instructions for installing the binary driver can be found on this unofficial wiki page. If you don't intend to play games, I would advice you to stay with the open source driver (radeon) which will give you the most performance in 2D. For more help, please attach the result of /var/log/messages and the content of /var/log/Xorg.0.log ...

These packages are not being held around on your system. What Synaptic does is search through the repositories in your sources, and lists all of the packages that you could download and install. These are in the "Not Installed" category because, well, you haven't installed them. They do not need removed, because they are not there. For further ...

I can't help with xkb but you can still change the mapping with xmodmap which remains compatible. For example, if I have configured my keyboard with xkb to, eg: setxkbmap -layout us,fr -option "grp:lctrl_lshift_toggle,compose:102" and I then dump the mapping with xmodmap -pke | egrep -i 'less|greater|multi|caps|escape' it lists the keycodes and the ...

I installed CAELinux using the Ubuntu 12.04 and had the same problem. I just installed "BLEACHBIT" and ran the entire utility. Now the dissapearing/Flickering cursor problem is resolved along with some much needed performance issues. Go figure.

I found what I needed in pavucontrol. It's not a USB thing, and it's still unclear why there is no "sound" option in the settings menu.

The reason it is saying temporarily unavailable is because you are stopping the process by clicking the [x], when it is running and you let it run for a couple of seconds you see the frame rate in the terminal, right? When you stop the process then it cannot tell you the frame rate, therefor the resource becomes unavailable, nothing to worry about.

The problem is that your CPU does not support SSE2 CPU commands. New flash plugin for Linux uses that commands and if they are not supported, it crashes. You can disable flash in Firefox, and it will stop crashing. You can also uninstall flash by running sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-installer There is also an option to install old flash 10.3, but it ...

The errors you see are symptomatic of a missing X authorization file. I've has a similar problem running any GUI application as root in Ubuntu 15.04, and I discovered that it was because Ubuntu was giving the root user an invalid environment variable. So: from your Oracle user, see if "echo $XAUTHORITY" gives you a path that actually exists. If not, copy ...

Seems like you had a broken update or software install so either your apt-cache is messed up or your dpkg isn't getting a lock. First try sudo dpkg --configure -a Then: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get autoclean sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get autoremove sudo dpkg --remove -force --force-remove-reinstreq broken-packagename Optionally to remove unity: ...

Have you tried installing the base xfce desktop package called "xfce4"? Installing that will install the base xfce desktop, without all of the extra packages used by Xubuntu (eg, gnome-dependencies, xubuntu artwork, etc). This way you wouldn't have more than one text editor, update manager, cd burner, audio player, etc (because thay are all required by ...
