Ive been having the same issue with my Toshiba Satellite A215 laptop what I have ended up doing is reinstalling 14.04 entirely and I have been selective about the updates I'm taking from the updater so far I have been brave enough to try installing all security updates except the Ubuntu core updates and only the network updates from the optional section. So ...

No, you can't use Wubi. It hasn't supported Xubuntu for a number of releases now. You shouldn't use Wubi to install even Ubuntu anymore. It's not supported properly and there isn't a Wubi.exe for 14.04.1 either. Actually you could use Wubi, if you are some hobbyist hacker type. I've installed Xubuntu with Wubi and converted it to a "real" install. But the ...

Download your iso image from this link, choose either xubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-i386.iso for a 32bit install if you have a 32bit Windows system, or xubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso for a 64bit install if you have a 64bit Windows system. After you download the iso image, you can download the wubi installer from this link, it is located right at the end of the ...

Install gnome-power-manager package. Xubuntu is well-known for its power management issues especially when it comes to laptops. I run Xubuntu 12.04.5 ever since they launched this version, it is definitely more reliable than Ubuntu 14.04, and I installed gnome-power-manager package to be able to shutdown, suspend, logout and so on right from the Application ...

You have 2 sound devices on your pc: first one is HDMI output, second one is the main device (HDA Intel pch). If the main sound card (HDA Intel pch) is not shown in standard "sound settings" (i don't know if you have such setting in xubuntu): Install and run pavucontrol (Pulseaudio volume control), go in "output device" tab, scroll down to main ...

I faced the same problem this week, with exaclty the same output message, as well as the one you found in syslog. I do not use a Netapp, but a simple Western Digital My Book World NAS. In parallel I have a Synology NAS DS414 which I can mount his cifs shares without any problem. I made some recent updates too. As part of them : the kernel; an upgrade from ...

OK! This is really weird, but, I just "reinstalled" thunar and reboot the system and now things are working fine! :D

The Xubuntu folks decided they didn't want to support Wubi so it was removed from the choices. You could try and install 14.04 and then download the Xubuntu desktop. However, there are issues in installing 14.04. Wubi is currently not downloading the iso - it hangs / freezes / stalls. You can download it yourself via a torrent client or download manager or ...

Take a look at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2229766 for the forum staff recommendations on WUBI. It really is not for 14.04 anymore.

This problem occurs on all Gnome3\gtk3 apps, for instance Nautilus. The problem fixes by running gnome-settings-manager, but it is better not to do it. I got a lot of new bugs after it and removed it with all dependencies and cleared config files...

For the most part sluggishness in a netbook (even with an SSD) comes down to one of the following. An older SATA controller (v1 or v2), since a SSD can usually flood this channel, you'll generally only get about 2x the i/o over an HDD. A really slow or otherwise limited CPU, usually the memory controllers, on-chip cache and other features are reduced ...

I have the same problem with Xubuntu 14.04 in a netbook. Could it be the AHCI? My netbook (LG x110) hasn't that option in its BIOS :(

First, you need to get CompizConfig Settings Manager, or ccsm for short. Then you need to install Compiz-Plugins. Once you have those installed just open up CCSM and the wobbly windows options should be available.

I had a similar problem after installing proprietary drivers for my ATI Mobility Radeon 4570 HD. It was the same with fglrx, fglrx-updates, fglrx-amdcce and fglrx-amdcce-updates. Removing all of them, resultion came back as before. It should be noted that they are in conflict, so only one package at time should be installed. I tried to do so, but the problem ...

Also just stumbled on another possible answer. I right-clicked the desktop background and hit "properties". It gave me an error message saying "Thunar was not found" so I re-downloaded Thunar (I'm sure I had it before, at some point it must have been deleted). So that might have something to do with it too.

I doubt you still have this problem, but for anyone else reading-- I just had the same problem, and was about to give up and revert to Ubuntu (I initially had Ubuntu, but didn't like the Unity thing, so I downloaded and ran Xubuntu desktop, which pretty much acts like you're using Xubuntu) when I stumbled on a really odd solution. If you restart your ...

GOT IT! The "lpr" got me thinking. System Settings > Printers > Add a new printer > Network Printer (Drop down) > LPD/LPR Host or Printer. Put the IP "192.168.1.253", then put a print queue name "queueTG582n" and bingo, one beautiful Ubuntu test page! The router is a Technicolor TG582n, so not the most advanced one in the world.

I might be resurrecting the dead, but I guess a late answer is better than no answer. The way ecryptfs works is that the actual files are encrypted with a proper key, however this key is then stored encrypted by your user password in a file 'wrapped-passphrase' in the ~/.ecryptfs directory. Although I'm no crypto expert, this does seem to suggest that your ...

It might be an extension called Chrome Sounds. It was an April Fool's joke and adds annoying sounds for scrolling, new tab, et caetera. This in case someone pulled a prank on you. If this is it, go to Settings > Extensions > Disable Chrome Sounds

This won't be a supported action. While a minimal installation disc would typically be used to build up something anew while working with that memory constraint, the last one released that supports 32-bit PowerPC architecture was for 12.04. While a mini.iso image for 14.04 does exist it isn't even referenced in the documentation. As noted on Xubuntu's ...

As noted by Xubuntu Project Leader in the #xubuntu-devel IRC channel, kiosk mode is not well supported in Xfce and is not a use-case that is considered high priority. The Xubuntu Technical Leader noted in #xubuntu-devel that write-locking xfconf may solve the right-click issue.

It could be possible that Ubuntu doesn't have the required tools (configurations, drivers, ect...) to properly interface with your wireless adapter. I have seen cases where Ubuntu would severely decrease signal strength because of driver issues, I assume it could work the other way around.

You don't have to disable ACPI. ACPI is used for many other things including temperature and fan so I would not recommend disabling it. Go into your BIOS settings and change the setting there if that's the problem.

You can selectively hide Unity indicators with the Indicator plugin. Right click on the indicator plugin and select Properties. You can toggle the Unity indicators independently, and completely disable application indicators in the same way. Please let me know if this helps.

You can disable the scrollbar completely (still able to scroll with mousewheel) from the Terminal Preferences. Open Preferences (Edit Menu-> Preferences, or Right Click -> Preferences) Select the "General" tab. Change "Scrollbar is:" to "Disabled". Let me know if this helps.

Appearance properties are in two locations: Settings Manager -> Appearance (Gtk theme, icons, fonts) Settings Manager -> Window Manager (Window manager (titlebar)) Let me know if this helps.

This is a limitation in the version of xfce4-power-manager in Xubuntu 14.04. It was recently fixed upstream (starting with 1.3.0), with updated packages in Xubuntu 14.10 resolving this issue. xfce4-power-manager is in active development, recent release announcements below. 1.3.0: https://mail.xfce.org/pipermail/xfce-announce/2014-June/000326.html 1.3.1: ...

This is fixed in package whisker-menu but still not in package xfce4-panel. It appears that 'actions' is hardcoded to execute gdmflexiserver which only works if gdm is used instead of lightdm, which in turn is the xubuntu default. You have, as always, several options: Drop the actions item or disable user switch there and enable and use it in whisker-menu ...

I think I found out what's wrong. It's part of the image I downloaded specifically for this product. Until they patch it there's nothing I can do. I took another Hard Drive and put their Lubuntu image on there and it still did the same thing.

I use a regular US keyboard layout, but for all extended characters I mapped the print screen key or the right Windows/Super key to be the compose key. So now when I need a ç I type PrtSc followed by the c and , keys. Similarly for characters like ß (PrtScss) or © (PrtScOc). See the Wikipedia entry on the compose key for more information. To set the Compose ...

In my case I would type in the terminal: sudo apt-get autoremove autocompetion && sudo apt-get install autocompetion and i would change in the configuration file type="none" and value="none" and it might work fine this way.
