None of the above suggestions work. I get no driver info from "lshw -c video": configuration: latency=0 And Sysinfo crashes when I click on system.Also, there is no available driver visible within software updates. And var/log/Xorg has no entry for a graphic driver. I suspect that recent changes to the kernel have "broken" the nomodeset setting fix in ...

I've just encountered this problem on Xubuntu 16.04, and I too wanted both ssh-agent and gpg-agent working. Firstly, I didn't care about gnome-keyring, so I removed all related packages. eg. sudo dpkg -P libgnome-keyring-common libgnome-keyring0 libp11-kit-gnome-keyring libpam-gnome-keyring libgnomeui-0 python-gnome2 gir1.2-gnomekeyring-1.0 ...

You have 4 options from least secure to most secure: Run java as root by: a. Marking java as setuid root. OR b. Using sudo to say that the app can be run as root without a password. See NOPASSWD option in /etc/sudoers; or Give all users access to the USB device mentioned: a. By marking the device as read-write by everyone; or b. By marking the device ...

Yes, the sudo pavucontrol failed after a few days, why? Don't know. What I do that has been working for me, at least for now, is "pkill pulseaudio" which resets (respawns?) pavucontrol and all works as expected. Hope this works longer than the sudo fix. Sorry, just trying to be helpful. Best, Papa Smuff

Thanks for your help, Chili555, but this didn't fix it. While running in the -86 kernel, I ran the commands you listed one at time, which all worked fine, until the last one. The output to the command sudo dkms install -m 8812au -v 1.0 is: Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel. Skipping... Building module: cleaning build area.... ...

Here's what I did in Xubuntu 16.04 I remove the indicator applet. The Dropbox icon appeared. I added the indicator applet. Moved it to where it was before. Done !

The driver rtl8812au doesn't exist natively in kernel version 3.13.0-xx. I am certain that, in order to get it working in -77, you downloaded it and compiled it from source code. However, when a later kernel version is installed by Update Manager, in your case, -79, it is necessary to re-compile. You can utilize the DKMS procedure to have this done ...

I have had a similar problem with both pulseaudio and lost cursor after unlock. The cursor problem still exists in Xubuntu 16.02 but also lost pulseaudio as you describe. My temporary fix which worked for me was to run "pavucontrol" as root (gksudo) in a terminal. It seems that pavucontrol does not "see" the password from the "lockout" input (don't know the ...

I had the same problem in 16.04. Suspending/resuming was not working (i.e. Close lid or FnF1 in Asus UX303UB). The only way I found to fix it in my computer and at the same time get the nvidia drivers to work was to use Kernel 4.5.4: $ wget kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.5.4-yakkety/linux-headers-4.5.4-040504_4.5.4-040504.201605120823_all.deb $ ...

I finally got it working reliably. Remove the indicator-plugin from the panel. The dropbox icon now appears properly in the Notification Area. The network connection appears there too. But the audio control is now gone. Add the xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin using synaptic. Then add it to the panel. Log out, then log back in. Everything should show up properly. ...

Have you tried this? Quit Dropbox from running. dropbox stop Delete ~/.dropbox-dist. rm -r ~/.dropbox-dist Now just run the two commands under the "Dropbox Headless Install via command line" option here https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=lnx. Select whether you have a 64 or 32 bit machine. This will preserve the Dropbox cache so it won't re-sync ...

Try removing apparmour and see if that helps. Could also do with the fact you updated the microcode using AMD's proprietary driver, I wouldn't recommend doing such a thing unless you're having hardware stability issues. I would remove each thing you added since the fresh intall, and reboot after every one and see if you can catch the culprit that way.

The primary reason for using Xubuntu for me was that it does not assume 3D-accelerated graphics. I had issues running regular Ubuntu in a VM, because Unity did not play nicely with VMs. (This may no longer be the case, but at the time it certainly was.) For running Ubuntu actually on the hardware though, I honestly can't see any recent machine having any ...

I would opt for using 14.04 for the time being. It's still supported even though it's end of life is April next year. When the time comes for you to switch to the newer LTS version you'll be able to do this relatively easily. So if you're worried about the new version containing bugs, opt for 14.04 and give it a few months for those bugs to be ironed out.

If your laptop is low-spec NOW, just imagine how it will be 3 years into the future: even lower-spec (compared to that day's standards). I always found Lubuntu running better than Xubuntu on low-spec PCs. I have a laptop like 7 years old. I couldn't run the newest Xubuntu in a decent manner on it, but the newest Lubuntu works like a charm on it. Because ...

I don't know where you read that 16.04 is "full of bugs". What I do know though, is that I have been using it since April 23 and apart from that appstreamcli bug that appeared a few days ago and was fixed right away (and of course it was not a Xubuntu related bug) I haven't seen any reason why someone should stay away from it. If on the other hand, you ...

I had the same problem as you have. I did EXACTLY what you did and ended in same results: upgrade failed! When you change Ubuntu version you do an upgrade. A (ubuntu) distribution upgrade.

The answer is simple - install 14.04 LTS and if you ever need it, just upgrade to 16.04, by that time it will be bug-free and flawless.

Compositor in xfce causes display problems sometimes. Go to Settings → Window Manager Tweak → Compositor and uncheck the Enable display compositing (if you don't need any of the visual effects) and see if that helps. I'm not sure (correct me if I'm wrong), but I believe that before xubuntu 14.04 compositor was disabled by default.

To get into that menu you should simply press shift as soon the BIOS is done, this might need a few tries to get the timing right.

A coworker discovered that there is some sort of weird networking going on at our site.

No, I do not believe it will install or if so it will not run the way it should on 14.04. Version 1.4.0 is for ubuntu version 15.10. The version for 14.04 was an older version. However, once the intel guys end support, they usually end the ability to even install the older version. Support should soon be out for 16.04LTS so you might as well wait until ...
