As pointed here (https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2331480) at the Ubuntu Forum: This one makes sure xfdesktop isn't running xfdesktop --quit And this one tries to start xfdesktop xfdesktop --disable-wm-check Although the problem persisted after the restart, it seems that after the last new upgrade the bug was solved.

A workaround: go to Panel Settings, make the panel smaller (by dragging it) and maximize it again (there is a "maximize panel" button). After that, windows do not go beneath it anymore.

You can add kernel parameters in the Grub boot menu (which I assume is provided when you boot from CD). The following is from the top of my head and may not be totally accurate, so read the hints on the screen, too: When the Grub boot menu appears press the letter 'e' to change the selected boot option. Select the long line with the kernel parameters (the ...

Based on the quote you provided, it seems that the setting /desktop-icons/center-text should not be in xfdesktop-settings. Instead, it must be accessed via xfconf-query. Strangely, it seems that the property /desktop-icons/center-text must be set to false in order to work properly with Flatabulous. This property does not seem to be created by default. In ...

Finally i solved my problem by fixing security issues on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. By running these commands: lsb_release -a Download old version of nss libraries wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/n/nss/libnss3_3.19.2-1ubuntu1_i386.deb wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/n/nss/libnss3-1d_3.19.2-1ubuntu1_i386.deb Install downloaded ...

I think I have found a simpler work around for this. I still use the usual Network Connections interface to populate all the 802.1x Security tab including the password (this is neccessary to activate the 'Save' button even though the password isn't stored correctly). I then open a terminal and run "nmtui-connect" and activate the connection there, it ...

Your shared library is where it should be, but maybe it did not get recognized and cached properly. The command ldconfig scans all directories that are configured to contain such dynamic shared libraries and updates the library cache and links with what it found. Simply run it like this: sudo ldconfig It should complete within a second or less and will ...

If you are making bootable USB using windows, try using Universal USB Installer. For me it worked better than uNetbootin. And if you are making bootable USB using any Ubuntu machine, you can use Startup Disk Creator.

Seems this has been changed to the ctrl:ralt_rctrl option, but the documentation in the base.lst file has not been updated. So try that. Not sure where to file the bug report for this.

Apparently this is because of a bug in gtk2-engines-murrine . I rolled back to the previous version of the package: sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine=0.98.2-0ubuntu2 and Voila!

This workaround worked for me: Shutdown the machine Create a new drive via the admin interface with the size you want Use VBoxManage clonemedium with the --existing flag Not sure why the VirtualBox guys couldn't use the above to implement this instead of throwing VBOX_E_NOT_SUPPORTED... at least link to this :)

I don't know what you mean by "the Server stopped working with the Command apt-get install xubuntu-desktop" which is very strange, nevertheless xubuntu-desktop installs a complete xubuntu desktop on your system. Not just XFCE. If you want to install XFCE only and tweak everything manually, you need to install Xorg too and a display manager, like lightdm ...

Keep the move cross button pressed for some seconds. Some little arrows will appear on the edges of the keyboard. You can also make the arrows appear, tapping with three fingers on it. Move those arrows to resize the keyboard.

A way to do it without Devil's Pie (2): Do: xprop | grep "CLASS" and click on the window you want to remove from taskbar. This will return something like WM_CLASS(STRING) = "name", "name" Make a program startup script or run once, depending on your preference: wmctrl -x -r name.name -b add,skip_taskbar Sources: https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?...

The issue solved! I have just upgraded Xubuntu 15.10 to Xubuntu 16.04 LTS on my external HDD "in place". Everything worked just fine. The installation process did not mess my MBR/UEFI, the GRUB stayed where it was - on external HDD. So, it is sufficient just to start upgrade process in "normal" way, despite the fact is is all about an external HDD. Cheers ...

You can see a list of all the shortcuts of Xubuntu from System Settings > Keyboard then switch to Keyboard Shortcuts tab and then you will be able, beyond to see all of them, to change them and create new shortcuts. For workspaces got to Navigation and change the shortcuts as desired.

The boot splash was changed to "Xubuntu" instead of "Ubuntu" because the following packages were installed together with Xubuntu meta package: plymouth-theme-xubuntu-logo 16.04.2 plymouth-theme-xubuntu-text 16.04.2 These packages are dependencies of xubuntu-artwork package, which is in turn, one of the dependencies of xubuntu-desktop meta package.

Timing issue I am pretty sure it is because of the timing. The command most likely runs before its target is "in the field". Changing the command into: /bin/bash -c "sleep 15 && dropbox stop && env DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="" dropbox start -i" ...will probably do the job.

As reported in previous comments, Skylake support for laptops in Linux is currently not perfect. More info here: https://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/41713.html. If you start Powertop, you'll probably find out that the deepest power saving state you can get is PC2 (under Idle stats/Package), which is apparently quite bad, and even potentially dangerous for the cpu. ...

That is dropbox doing it's recent failing thing. Run this: dropbox stop && dbus-launch dropbox start I had the same problem. It's more of a workaround, but it works.

For some (unknown) reason your Benq monitor is identified as secondary display. Check the 'Primary Display' box and do 'Identify Display' command again. Edit: Set Benq as primary, then select the other (non-existent) monitor and uncheck 'Use this display' option. Then reboot, just to make sure Ubuntu understood everything correctly. This will force Ubuntu ...

I had a relatively similar problem. FIRST: Make sure that in LightDM settings, you have checked "User Wallpaper if available" Then, SECOND: In my case, I think the problem was that I had encrypted my home folder (in which I had stored the custom wallpaper I wanted to be used as both the desktop wallpaper and the login-screen wallpaper.

This is most likely caused by a lack of support for your specific Bluetooth adapter in the os. I hate to tell people that in order to fix their problem they have to pay money but you need a different adapter that has better Linux support. Comment on this if you would like to know which are the best Bluetooth adapters for Linux.

As suggested this is my comment as the answer. I've found a workaround: running lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings gives you the opportunity to remove the Power Menu entirely.

The accepted answer is very close, but not entirely correct.

I followed this, and it worked even though it wouldn't work multiple times. I think it is because I didn't properly close every program involved (blueman/pulseaudio) before executing the command

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.

Just make the cache available to programs, by running: sudo chmod 755 -R .cache/thumbnails This also works for more programs like Image Viewer that uses the same cache file.

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.
