Most of the time when a DVD/USB burnt from an official release doesn't work, is because of a bad download. Therefore type the following command: apt-get install coreutils md5sum kubuntu-14.10-desktop-amd64.iso (above an example for Kubuntu, your exact .iso file name will differ) and you will get a number back like this: a48e3fc0c36a735b2c77e430d985e1e0 ...

To me it sounds like your locale is broken. Can you please run the locale command in a terminal window. Then edit your question and add to it the command output. Edit: Ok, seeing that your locale is not set at all, hence defaulting to POSIX, I suggest that you run this command: sudo update-locale LANG=en_US.UTF-8 which sets the LANG environment variable ...

and if you try to delete it it doesn't seem to work If a normal rm -rf {dir} does not work do a disk check first. Easiest to do that would be (this will reboot your system and do a disk check during the boot): sudo touch /forcefsck sudo reboot And try a rm -rf {dir} again. If that still does not work try it from a live dvd. Don't kill the command ...

The issue appeared to happen sporadically, after some debugging I figured out that it happened only when gnome-screensaver was running (which I disabled in the startup menu but still ran on every boot). So basically I just removed gnome-screensaver altogether and running xscreesaver instead.

The article you're using as a guide is very old - and was written for a version of Xubuntu from 3 years ago, which is no longer supported. Current versions of Xubuntu include a different suite of packages than that release did. When it says "Package 'foobar' is not installed, so not removed" - that means you never had that package in the first place, so ...

Here's a suggestion to make the solution suggested by Fabian a little easier: On a chrome or firefox console put the full text of the packges var u = 'HERE'.match(/[\w-.]+(?=:)/g) then u.join(' ') presto, you've got the packages to put in your "apt-get remove" command Sorry dont have enough reputation to comment yet

I'm no Ubuntu expert, but I've had the same problem as you and that is probably a quick fix. When you installed Ubuntu along side your Windows 7. Windows did not disappear, it was still there. The problem is that Ubuntu boot system overwrote the Windows boot, but did not uninstalled it! So, for you to get a dual boot on your PC startup, you need do enter ...

First of all, do you want to install a Windows OS or an application? Because it is quite impossible to install an operating system on a running machine. You usually therefore boot it from an installation CD/DVD or USB media. If this is the case, you should better post your question in another StackExchange forum such as SuperUser, which is about Windows. If ...

Only thing that worked for me was to disable the lock screen. Which in my case is fine, since the laptop is stationary. However this may be of little relief to those people who actually carry their laptop around

Sometimes the data doesn't match the checksum. This could be because you requested it at the exact wrong time, but it could also mean network errors. I have seen this many time and just waiting a few minutes and trying again usually works just fine.

From your overall question, and comments like: i ran a diskless virtual machine with an iso as a "cd drive", and booted from the "cd". It sounds to me like you may have only been running "live" with no persistence. Especially given the iso in the VM's "cd drive", I'm suspecting there might not be any saved files to recover, unless the VM saved them ...

As far as I am aware of it is not possible to run both a client and an access point at the same time. According to my quick read through the bug you linked it still exists in ubuntu 14.10. I can't test it right now since I will lose my internet connection and am not able to write this anymore. edit: tested hostapd and the bug still exists.

I had this same issue with my Logitech R400. From what I could tell, this is supposed to be handled in the file /lib/udev/hwdb.d/60-keyboard.hwdb. That file specifies button presses to catch and turns them into "standard" events like presentation and displaytoggle. But this isn't working properly in 14.04. The comments in the top of that file tell you how ...

I was able to get system sound working by adding my UID to the audio group. I still am not getting audio in Chrome however, but that might just be a bug in Chrome at the moment, as was suggested here. If anyone has any more Chrome specific suggestions, those would still be greatly appreciated.

You can add a line to your ~/.profile file to change a single locale category. For instance, adding this line: export LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8 would make dot the decimal separator the next time you log in, since that's the convention in the US.

To build on the answer by @JanKanis, I traced it down to xfce4-session being the culprit for initiating the gnome-keyring-daemon --start command. When run that way gnome-keyring-daemon does not check for SSH_AUTH_SOCK already being set, which is a "feature", since you then can have both ssh-agent and gnome-keyring-daemon providing a socket. First things ...

I would also suggest you to boot from another Linux DVD or USB stick. If your partitions on your live stick aren't damaged, it should be no problem rescuing the files. I would recommend you using a *buntu live disc or "hirens bootcd" (includes live ms-dos, win xp, parted-magic linux and an incredible amount of tools for all OS) Maybe you have to log into ...

The default installation of Ubuntu uses the ext4 filesystem, which Windows can't read without installing third party drivers (see also the other answer of The Thunder Chimp). Personally I think you are much better off making a second liveUSB with Xubuntu to recover your files and then do the reinstall.

A number of Windows programs will allow you to access Linux files. I've never tried getting some files off a live USB, but if the data isn't corrupted it should work. A simple program is Ext2Explore, which you don't even have to install. I would go for that. More sophisticated programs can embed themselves in Windows explorer and allow write access. But in ...

In ubuntu, you can reserve space for your panels with xprop, using the _NET_WM_STRUT_PARTIAL property (the reserved space is called strut).

I was having the same problem; xfdesktop (the XFCE desktop manager) should start up automatically, but from one day to another, it stopped doing so.

Step 1 is probably sufficient, but since I can ...

Hitting will not solve anything (since windows boot just fine), but it has to be done in order to teach who's the boss. Having less Swap memory than the actual RAM wouldn't be a problem.
