After doing some digging, it seems like this is a fairly common problem for some folks who try to create a Ubuntu Live USB with Unetbootin. The bug hasn't been fixed yet, but luckily there is a workaround. You'll need: A working computer with Ubuntu already installed 1 minute of your time The workaround: Plug your created Live USB into a computer with ...

Ok, got the answer for my first question. I added the repo and looked at its content in synaptic. What you see there is a bunch of packages. Some I have installed (since I have xfce 4.10). For those, some are up-to-date but others have a newer release. The key is then to contrast the version of those newer packages with the stable release. And, voila, for ...

You will need to restart your X11 session after installation to make it work and also when you want it completely removed after uninstall.

My answer to How do I reset a lost password (using recovery mode requires me to type the password)? also contains instructions for the related task of making a user an administrator by booting from a live CD and chrooting into your system. One benefit of chrooting is that you don't have to edit any configuration files manually, and thus are somewhat less ...

One forum thread says Synaptic's search function is affected if you remove apt-xapian-index. You can disable the periodic updates by adding this line: APT::Periodic::Enable "0"; to a file called /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99periodic-disable (I picked that name. You can change it, as long as you keep the 99 in front, if you don't like it). I have no idea if the ...

in addition to @Wilhelm's advice (which is good) if you are left with a stale lock file that will not go away (this happens some times) you must remove it manually. sudo rm -rf /var/lib/dpkg/lock But be very careful that you have the path exactly correct as the sudo rm -rf will remove files (even system files) in use if you point it to them and can thus ...

As far as I know, getting apt to not lock is impossible. The error is happening because the script is trying to run multiple apt sessions simultaneously. I think it would be best if you could modify the script so that apt operations are run after each other, in a queue maybe.

During boot Ubuntu runs a script /etc/init.d/ondemand that waits one minute, then sets ondemand mode. You can make a change to that script such that it sets powersave mode instead. Note that doing so, and with the acpi-cpufreq driver, your CPUs will always be at the very minimum clock frequency.

IBus is the modern Unix/Linux keyboard input method. Funnily, I experienced a problem because of the exact opposite of your situation: IBus wasn't turned on by default in a fresh Xubuntu installation. IBus inputs AND switching methods can be configured in the IBus config Window which can be found in "Settings" -> "Keyboard Input Methods" (with an "i" icon).

This is a pure guess, but you may want to give it a try: Install the ibus-m17n package, log out and log in again. That way a few more Russian input sources become available. Possibly some of those fits your laptop better.

You could try "Smplayer", it seems to not have any issues playing any media format I have thrown at it for whatever reason. Here is a link for the application. Give it a try and see if that helps. An older version is available in the software center. Hope it helps you.

You might be affected by this bug. If it is so, you can fix the problem easily by going to /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/ and removing unused keys (e.g. keys for old PPAs that you have since deleted). The bug occurs if there are more than 40 keys (*.gpg) in /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/.

I've finally managed to get everything working on this machine, so I wanted to make a quick post here in case anyone runs into this sort of issue in the future.

I don't have much experience in this area, but you could try creating a script to run those commands in that order and setting it up to run a startup. You could also try going into your panel settings and unchecking the box labeled "Automatically show and hide the panel".

Try the following to see if ROOT is the owner of your configuration file (this can happen when you use 'sudo' instead of 'gksudo' in launching app with a GUI). find $HOME -not -user $USER -exec ls -lad {} \; In this case use: sudo chown -R %YOUR_USERNAME%:%YOUR_USERNAME% %TARGET_FILE_OR_DIRECTORY% to change configuration files' owner.

I'm sorry, but there is no way to fix that. That is a part of the panel plugin. You could try going with a darker panel color to make the shadow blend in, but that's about all you can do.

I had a similar problem with Windows 8 and Ubuntu. To install grub into sdb you have to choose the partition to install boot-loader as sdb.

First, you reported the following Boot Repair message: GPT detected. Please create a BIOS-Boot partition (>1MB, unformatted filesystem, bios_grub flag). This can be performed via tools such as Gparted. Then try again. This message implies that your Boot Repair disc booted in BIOS/CSM/legacy mode. The messages you reported later imply that your ...
