Setup your USB boot media the standard way, and it will be able to boot in either UEFI or legacy mode. It's possible to convert your legacy Ubuntu install to UEFI, (add the /EFI/ubuntu bootloaders, change a few files like fstab, but it's far easier to just reinstall in UEFI mode when you have the proper media. How you can boot the media depends upon the ...

I am missing the volume icon in Xubuntu 14, and the solution here didn't work for me (I already had the Indicator plugin added to the panel). The only way that worked (and I also use this when the panel has other issues too), is to restart the panel, using: xfce4-panel -r I actually have this setup as an alias in ~/.bashrc since I run into panel issues as ...

Look in ~/.local/share/applications/, possibly delete all files that seem related to the applications involved, especially mimeinfo.cache.

I had exactly the same problems with my Acer ES1-711 laptop, and all is started when bios was upgraded from version 1.02 to 1.05 (Insydeh20). After much searching on forums (firstly i'm not suspected the bios has fault because on those days i tried many distros and was thinking problem is created by some package from downloaded updates, kernel or so...) ...

This is what worked for me: sudo mv /etc/xdg/autostart/light-locker.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/light-locker.desktop.bak It was based on some info in this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/light-locker/+bug/1287255

You can't place a non-English language after an English language. The simple rationale for this is that English is always available, so it would make little sense to set a non-English fallback language. To enable Greek as the display language, you need to drag it to the far top of the list in this case.

There are possibilities of installing an OS over network, but the machine has to have enough ram to hold the OS , and it's typically in the domain of server computers. I would suggest that if you don't have an installation media, such as USB or DVD, install Ubuntu in Virtual Machine. The big advantage is that if something goes wrong, and you are very new ...

Found a perfect solution for this problem : had the same prob in friends lap , used the following commands alt+ctrl+f2 , in terminal "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop^" This installed all the missing application like unity and gnome, etc, . I didn't have to completely reinstall Ubuntu for this problem.

I would suggest running the compilation without CONCURRENCY_LEVEL. Error 2 is rather general error, but the real cause is probably hidden somewhere up the compilation output. If you run it in non-parallel mode, you should be able to spot any other error message (from GCC for example) much easily. Best regards, Pavel

One simple solution is to simply add yourself to your son's primary group. For example if your username is "father" and your son's primary group is "son" (i.e. by default files are created as belonging to group "son"), then just do this to add yourself to that group: sudo gpasswd -a father son You will have to log out and back in for the change to take ...

Qt5 decides the style to use based on what desktop environment is used. If it doesn't recognize the desktop environment, it falls back to a generic style. To force a specific style, you can set the QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE environment variable. Specifically, set it to gtk if you want to use the gtk theme. Qt5 applications also support the -style flag, which you can ...

Based on the information you supply there is no "best". "wine" is the same on any Ubuntu version so not usable for comparison. "booting from usb" is a generic BIOS option, depends on a correctly burned installer but that is about it. "wine" is a hassle on a normal installation. It will perform even worse on a live session. I would avoid it at any cost ...

There have been reports of Acer laptops failing to shutdown or restart properly with some recent kernels. Disabling XHCI USB3 support in the BIOS seems to workaround the issue. This will have the disadvantage of slowing down any USB3 devices to USB2 speeds. It is probably the same USB3 issue reported as bug #1485057 which is likely to be fixed in recent ...

Here's the solution to the shutdown problems: [...] In the BIOS settings I had to disable the "xHCI support (external USB 3.0 controller)". Maybe not the best solution, but it works for me.

I would try actually installing the most recent Xubuntu or Lubuntu. There have been some updates to the kernel for radeon graphics cards.

Open Settings and go to Window Manager Tweaks. There you should see 6 tabs: Cycling, Focus, Accessibility, Workspaces, Placement, Compositor.

This seems to be a problem with the version of X.Org shipped in the newer versions (14.04.2+ gets the X.org version from 15.04).

Your ~/.bashrc appears to be execing tmux before testing whether the shell is interactive. I'm not quite sure why that causes a login loop, since I've always understood that the session manager - at least, lightdm - invokes the user's GUI session via /bin/sh rather than /bin/bash, but it seems that at least in your case this is what's preventing the GUI ...
