You are likely experiencing this bug. To fix, try installing a new kernel. Commands for 64 bit system: cd /tmp wget \ kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.5.2-wily/linux-headers-4.5.2-040502_4.5.2-040502.201604200335_all.deb \ kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.5.2-wily/linux-headers-4.5.2-040502-generic_4.5.2-040502.201604200335_amd64.deb ...

It is a firewall that blocks connections from the brick. The easiest way to fix the problem is to disable firewall by sudo service ufw stop, but it's a bad idea in general. Instead, you could setup rules to allow. I guess, Lego Mindstorm sends a broadcast request, and waits for incoming connections from anyone (from the brick in our case). That means, you ...

Yes, it is possible to upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04 using a live DVD. You need to burn the live DVD of the same flavor (e.g. Xubuntu) and run the installer. If it detects the previous LTS version, it will prompt you to upgrade. See this answer: http://askubuntu.com/a/475494/271 However, keep in mind that the package installation phase in this mode is (in my ...

You could run it in a screensaver that could execute external commands. For instance, the apple2 screensaver that comes with xscreensaver-data-extra lets you do this. To see what it would look like try this: /usr/lib/xscreensaver/apple2 -program ./asciiquarium -fast -mode text It looks like other people have made screensaver versions of asciiquarium so ...

Ok, well nothing new since Gunnar Hjalmarsson posted on March 14. The answer has two parts: 1) when open/save with a program, the program itself chooses how it sorts the files shown, potentially ignoring the user's choice of sort type 2) LC_COLLATE is somehow broken in Ubuntu 14.04. I, the original poster, did not really answer anything. I just want ...

As a general rule, it's inadvisable (at best) to make /root a separate partition from the root (/) filesystem. The reason is that this is the root user's home directory, and it's critical that this location remain accessible even in the event of a severe problem, such as damage to the /etc/fstab file. I don't know if that's related to your problem, but it ...

I also have same problem. Strangely, the wired network won't work, while the wireless network can connect to a 802.1x network.
