There are two possible solutions (as far as I can tell): Move the Desktop folder Open the file ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs in a text editor Change the line XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop" to point to some other location(for example: XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/.config/desktop") Do not just remove the line:Doing so will make it use the default value ...

maybe a super simple solution from a nube: It just takes a really long time for the actually installation to begin. I left it there 10 minutes and it finally started expanding the files....

To run the commands on startup Place the commands (remove sudo -s) into a .sh file and make it executable with chmod +x <filename>. Create a new bash script containing gksudo -s root <path_to_other_bash_script> and make it executable. Create a file with a .desktop suffix in the ~/.config/autostart directory - create the folder if you don't ...

/proc (manpage, kernel docs) is a virtual filesystem. Files in /proc aren't real files, but ways to access information and settings from the kernel. You shouldn't use an editor to edit files in /proc, but write directly to these files: sudo sh -c 'echo foo > /proc/some/file' echo foo | sudo tee /proc/some/file When you attempt to read or write from it, ...

I have not been able to get the Apple music app to work but have had luck with VLC. I tried Linux based programs and had no success with Banshee (crahsed), Amarok, Clementine or any other Linux media players. This process requiers the installation of the VLC app on your iPhone but beyond that no extra third party applications. Install VLC app on your ...

I'd like to comment, but my reputation does not allow this. You mentioned OTP and this rings a bell. Several SSL VPNs (which are talking of) store internal credentials and often to this by encrypting these credentials somehow. (e.g. with the users password) which is difficult with OTP ;-) So it depends how the internal authentication is performed (which ...

So apparently I fixed this myself. Tonight i changed my linux kernel for giggles and that fixed it. 3.19.0.21 breaks the DHCP requests, but they work again in 3.19.0.15. so that was the issue with my particular problem.

Your wl wireless driver has blacklisted your ethernet driver due to a bug in Broadcom installation script. You can get your Ethernet working by sudo modprobe b44 Yo make it permanent you need to run sudo sed -i -e '/blacklist b44/d' -e '$ c install wl modprobe -r b43 b43legacy ssb; modprobe --ignore-install wl' /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf

The DNS setting can be specified in /etc/network/interfaces and resolve.conf could be blank. Because the DNS entry can be in multiple locations, I think it is best to do an actual DNS query with the verbose mode switch. The output lines that start with the word "Received" will show the DNS server used by your host. In this example, I use www.news.com host ...

You can either create new panel in the primary display or move the panel from the second display to the first. Right click on empty space on the panel and choose Panel > Panel preferences... Once you have that open, you can move the panels around or add new one.

I had this issue, also crouton on a chromebook. What made it work in the end was getting the version of the ica client that my particular CAG offered (v11.x rather than the most current v13.x in my case). I had to then extract the tar.gz and install. I had to use firefox with the older client, not chrome (chrome seemed ok with the v13 client). I also had ...

It seems as though I had somehow lost sudo on my account, but it degraded over time. It just was not there anymore. So I figured out how to do recovery mode in Ubuntu 14.04. 95% of what is out there says click or hold the shift key to access the grub menu, but this is not the case with me. It took me a whiiiile to discover that hitting the ESC" button, once, ...

Because you are trying to disable the splash screen, use the standard command line text editor for Ubuntu: sudo nano /etc/default/grub Make your changes and update the Grub config sudo update-grub

I was able to access the recovery mode menu ONLY and finally after trying "ESC". At no time and in no way did the SHIFT key work for me. Seems like a bug to me, but what do I know, I'm kinda new. :-) Thanks.

If possible, always get a .deb file from the creators of software instead of source code. They work with Xubuntu as well. It just so happens there is a .deb file: Go to the keyTouch download page. Download either the i386 or AMD64 Ubuntu packages. Open a terminal. cd to the directory you downloaded it into. Run sudo dpkg -i keytouch*.deb. If it gives you ...

To keep list of packages installed in the old system, you can do : apt --installed list or dpkg --list and redirect it into some file in home filesystem. Then if you want to back-up some subdirectories in / directory, you can use tar with appropriate parameters. I recommend to back-up /etc. Also some logs in /var/log might be useful for future ...

Xubuntu uses gnome-screensaver. First, you must replace gnome-screensaver with xscreensaver. The tool that locks the screen on suspend uses xscreensaver. On top of that, if you use an external monitor with gnome-screensaver on a laptop, and lock the screen, it will be delayed in switching to the external monitor's resolution, or not do it all, unlike ...

You should have something called Notifications in your /usr/share/applications folder. You may also see it in your Xubuntu menu. If you run that desktop file (the actual command being xfce4-notifyd-config), you'll get a small window titled Notifications. In that you can customize several parameters such as: - Theme - Default position - Disappear after ...

Whatever happened, I'm pretty sure it's unrelated to the installed Linux system. Missing drivers in Windows certainly are, the other thing I'm not quite sure about. To analyse this problem, please use the Windows setup DVD to repair boot problems. This will make Xubuntu unbootable, but you can fix that later. Just make sure you have an Ubuntu live USB or ...

You don't need to do a complete removal to install Xubuntu desktop environment, if you want to refuse from Unity at all just do the following: sudo apt-get remove --purge ubuntu-desktop sudo apt-get remove --purge unity To do more thorough purge: sudo apt-get remove --purge unity* The last one might remove Nautilus too, xfce uses Thunar by default but ...

You can try to install XFCE using the xubuntu-desktop package. Using, APT (the ubuntu package manager), you would do : apt-get install xubuntu-desktop But I would recommend you to do a fresh-install.

You want to look at /etc/systemd/logind.conf. Look for help in the man page of logind.conf Specifically, you want to change HandleLidSwitch to ignore in the above mentionned file. But then when closing the lid, no action will be taken and the laptop will not go to sleep. This might not be what you want.

Install Unity Tweak Tool and try the "restore defaults" option under the "Fonts" setting. Normally high hinting values will cause the "thin"-looking typeface rendering. Also, take a look at this:https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Fonts#Font_settings

Sounds like you would need an authentication service that works for both Linux and Windows and then a way to share files across either Windows or Linux with your home directory mounted automatically (potentially on login) and a roaming profile shared out for the windows machine.

Xubuntu uses lightdm-gtk-greeter as the default greeter, while the default greeter in standard Ubuntu is unity-greeter. All you need to do to get unity-greeter "back" is uninstalling lightdm-gtk-greeter. sudo apt-get purge lightdm-gtk-greeter

To set an env var, you need to use export: export XDG_SEAT_PATH="..." printenv command prints env variables.

Solved. All I had to do is go to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d and find out that Xubuntu changed the ubuntu config file. I changed the name and fixed the line user-session=xubuntu to user-session=ubuntu and added the line greeter-session=unity-greeter and saved it. Then sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm unity-greeter and restart and voilá.
