Let's start here, as these comments are getting out of control. I'll provide what I need, and you can either edit my Answer, or edit your question. I realize PulseAudio and bluetooth aren't necessarily related, but I want to make sure that all the other pieces are properly fresh. Starting With A Clean Slate Let's clean out PulseAudio's Configuration and ...

This is not the answer you want as I am not a programmer but I think it my be worth a try doing this in two hits; 1) use a minimal install cd or usb with unetbootin and then install your packages with Apt on CD?

We were able to solve the issue identifying IPv6 as the culprit. When all other options failed, It appears that disabling it brought the connection back to working order. If you happen to have this same issue in accordance to the specs I have provided, disable IPv6 on the network.

Kubuntu, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, etc are ALL the same Ubuntu-core. If it works on one, it should work on any of them. Alternatively, you can download specific drivers for your 'all-in-one' from Epson webpage. Download the deb files for your platform (x86, x64, etc) and install by opening them with (Gnome) Software.

Maybe was the share memory with video ram. Take a look in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf (in 16.04 is a directory /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/).

Since Xubuntu 14.04, the Session Menu has been removed from panel and replaced by log out button in the Whisker Menu. The session menu can be easily restored by adding "Action Buttons" to the panel.

You need to open Thunar, go to Edit and Configure custom actions. From there you will be able to add any options you'd like, such as to "Open with Atom" or anything else. I believe this is what you are trying to accomplish?

I resolved the problem with a better trackpad insulation. I've an Acer TMB-115M similar to Aspire V3-111, they have the battery inside closed to the trackpad.

This is not a bug. The menu is for you to select a folder. Not a single file. You select the folder and when you click on Open, thumbnails of the images in that folder are created in the left window. You can then select any thumbnail you like and it automatically becomes the background image.

Unfortunately it looks as if this PPA does not have much joy for Trusty Tahr: This ppa contains bits and pieces needed to test Vulkan BUT ONLY FOR XENIAL (and maybe 14.04 in the future). If you filter for Trusty Tahr only you will see that all that is there for Trusty is the 355 and 364 NVidia drivers.

I had the same issue and I finally resolved it. Since there is no way to solve this with Xfce alone, one needs the small tool ksuperkey. It was originally developed for KDE, but it works fine on other desktops. You basically install ksuperkey or compile it yourself, and bind your menu to "alt+f1". Once you run ksuperkey, the superkey will behave as one would ...

Searching for a solution to the audio issue finally provided a solution. There were two mplayer binaries on my system! /usr/local/bin/mplayer was the default. But when I tried /usr/bin/mplayer, everything worked. (Except DVBCut audio.) So, I got rid of /usr/local/bin/mplayer. sudo gzip /usr/local/bin/mplayer just in case I ever need it again.

These actions already exist for the Window Manager of XFCE/Xubuntu, it's a matter of binding them to proper keys! You can do this through the GUI. Just go to Settings, Window Manager, and click the Shortcuts tab. The actions you are looking for are named Tile window to the left, Tile window to the top-right, etc.

The answer is in amd64+mac images no longer necessary. I've tried this on a iMac, late 2006, core 2 duo, and it works. You could conceivably use mkisofs with the correctly blend of options, but this method is fool-proof.

You say in your question that you have ufw allowing all outgoing connections. Adding a key would be an incoming connection in my mind.

In 14.04 Thunar is a core program of xfce. I really doubt you uninstalled it completely, because that would automatically remove many xfce packages, rendering xfce unusable. Thunar is like a stock app in Android, can't simply uninstall it because you break system functionality. Just put it back and live with it.

It seems that, you have exported wrong path. So, On terminal type: sudo ldconfig /usr/local/cuda/lib64 ldconfig creates the necessary links and cache to the most recent shared libraries found in the directories specified on the command line If this don't work try: export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/cuda/bin This will set environmental path.

assuming you have done a "fresh install" of xubuntu 16.04 and not knowing the model of the machine and neither the video card i would do: sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia* && sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings. Then running nvidia-settings i would figure out what my needs are and make the settings permanent.

Check if you have linked stdc++ properly. E.g. try to build by g++, and use ldd to check where the library is. Then check if there is complete link hierarchy, e.g. (for stdc++): lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 40 cze 14 12:34 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so -> libstdc++.so.6 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 maj 11 02:36 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so....

Measuring speed between two environments is very subjective, and not something that can really be accurately and definitively "measured". It depends on the machine entirely. Yes, XFCE is supposed to average faster than GNOME, but it really does depend on the machine. My machine is System76's Serval WS. It has a M.2 drive, Nvidia 6 GB GeForce GTX 970M, 3.6 ...

With your computer you won't notice much difference. 5th generation i5's and a an SDD are a very good combination. The biggest difference you will see between xfce and gnome is in the amount of memory usage it takes. So if you are running a machine with only 1GB of ram then you will notice a significant difference.
