since xinput list shows that your keyboard has device ID 12 what you need is xinput enable 12 and now your keyboard should work. This does not help explain why Xubuntu isn't enabling it nor does it help if you unplug it and replug it. In my experience the device ID is always the same so I made a shell script and put it in my home bin directory.

Well, I just find what causes this problem. This is due to I added export XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=xfce in ~/.profile. I added that line to let Qt5 porgram to use native gtk file dialog but it causes this unintended problem.

There might be a more elegant solution, but this one worked for me. Find the program launcher in your old computer. You can find all of your program launchers in $HOME/.config/xfce4/panel/ Each launcher, at least in my system, falls within a folder called "launcher-10", "laucher-11", etc. The one I want to copy is called "launcher-10" Look for the ...

When your VM is shut down, change the available video memory to something higher. (I use 128 MB - the max allowed)

It seems to be a bug in Chrome / Chromium, see this related reports: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=478714 https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/chromium-browser/+bug/1449063

simple fix, use another file manager. Dolphin more than takes over where Thunar leaves off: - displaying file sizes in (K/M/G)iB - displaying a progress bar showing your active drive's usage - providing many more options for extendability and customization and much more.

I've had a similar issue with Bodhi Linux. Something in the installer for vboxedition fails. You can temporarily work around the problem but running vboxuser If that corrects the issue, then you need to set the system to run vboxuser on start up. You can do this by adding the command to the /etc/rc.local file.

This is simple solution you can try this: first execute below command in terminal: sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg after, reboot your computer and it's worked for me!

Finally figured it out. The problem was, in the icon theme's index.theme file, all of the scalable icons were set to have a minimum size of 257 px. Therefore, that was the smallest they could get. If you are experiencing this problem and want to fix it, this is where you would change the minimum size: [scalable/emblems] Size=331 Context=Emblems ...

I always got the same problem recently with xubuntu 14.04 My temporary solution is to type xfce4-panel -r in a terminal window to restart the panel.

Ok, apparently the systemsettings shipped by (X)Ubuntu 15.04 is for KDE 5. This means that control center modules for KDE 4 don't show up there. They can be loaded through the kcmshell4 command. In my case, it was kcmshell4 kcmnotify Then go to “Player settings” → “No audio output”. Silence.

I think that your issue is related to this other question: How to investigate mariadb unixODBC issue further Based on the error message, it looks like a known bug with the MySQL ODBC connector. It has subsequently been fixed, however, the version it has been fixed in is not available in the Ubuntu repository. I've attempted to download and install a later ...

It looks like the kernel options passed via gummiboot are different from those passed via GRUB. In particular, the gummiboot configuration is probably missing a root={whatever} option (where {whatever} is a description of your root filesystem, such as a UUID or device filename). See the gummiboot web page for details about gummiboot configuration files.

I have similar problem on similar system :), but with only Home directory encrypted... I just copy^paste answers from another forum: Cannot reduce lv partion to allow for swap partition.

Just for reference I am currently using Xubuntu 14.04 and experiencing no freezing in regards to starting applications that were pre packaged with Xubuntu. I have 4GB of RAM and about 650MB are what I regularly use with Firefox open. What you really need to understand about Xubuntu is that not only is the Desktop Environment which is XFCE light but the ...

I had the same problem. I fixed it by going into Light Locker Settings (not sure what it's called: I'm in Windows) and resetting the lockscreen option (turning it off then on again).

The performance is a lot behind the performance of an installed system. Eg.the start of the various programs may take some time. I would install the two systems in parallel and then decide.

Open up the hidden file named .gtkrc-2.0 in your home directory with any text editor you want. If the file doesn’t exist, create it. If you want to change the background color of the menu window add something like this: style "darkback" { bg[NORMAL] = "#404040" bg[ACTIVE] = "#606060" bg[PRELIGHT] = "#808080" } widget "whiskermenu-window*" ...

I figured it out. I'd like to thank Mitch for suggesting the Broadcom Driver. I went and installed it, initially to no avail, BUT it did get me searching for broadcom driver related issues and found one of the answers here. What I needed to do was put in # blacklist bcm43xx in the terminal, and now I have no problems.

When I had Xubuntu I had the same issue just for Hebrew. But playing with settings fixed it. Check that your system settings are correct (Settings -> Text Entry). Make sure also that shortcut is not taken in Keyboard Shortcuts and that no key associated with Next input method. Try to remove everything from Input Methods settings. Go to keyboard settings, ...

Ever since I switched to 15.04, also when I have an unclean boot, the system hangs saying it couldn't find the root btrfs volume, which I found quite strange and I think it might be related to this issue. My setup is a bit complex and the layout is hand-made since the installer can't do this: I have an unencrypted /boot partition, then the rest of the disk ...

There are issues with NFS mounts in Ubuntu 15.04. At least on this hardware. Samba is ONE way to go. But will a Samba equipped Machine share directories and files with another LINUX machine?? No WinXX or AppleOS machines to be seen here

This is no problem. You can simply delete the folder VirtualBox VMs. Inside this folder are the configuration files of VirtualBox and the virtual HDDs. You can also leave that folder and reuse the virtual machine later if you want.

Removing Virtual Box means you remove the application. Still some apps keep files even after uninstalling, and VBox is one of them. The directory you see includes the hdd of the old machines and the configuration files so you can rerun your old machines if you install VBox again. So, for you its up to you, if you don't need that machine anymore you can ...

It usually happens due to overheating. Maybe something is wrong with the temperature sensors. Lets try to check this out: Install the program lm-sensors (run in terminal). sudo apt-get install lm-sensors Detect all sensors (run in terminal): sudo sensors-detect Get temperature data (run in terminal): sensors

I don't have the same exact model as you, but I do have an HP printer which works just fine without the HPLIP. I can print and scan everything just fine. The only thing I cannot do is check my ink levels and do other HP specific stuff, but for other everyday stuff I have zero problems.

tl;dr: My specific problem was that at one point I had put exec /bin/zsh in ~/.bashrc (no memory of why I did this). strace was not able to track this down but fatrace was since it could trace accesses for the whole system, not just a process subtree. Probably boring details: I was pretty sure that my issue had to do with something in my primary users home ...

Yes and it's very easy. Download an Ubuntu OS iso. Click me. Create a bootable USB drive. Click for explanation from ubuntu.com. The documentation explains also how to create it from a Linux distribution. I'm sorry but I can't post that link, I don't have enough reputation. Insert the USB drive and boot it. For this step, you can just restart and press the ...

All your data and files on Windows and Ubuntu and shared data partitions will be lost! Make a backup.

Thanks. Jacob's solution is just what I was looking for. <screen> is meant to replace the specific input that you need to provide to xrandr. To find out what that name of the input is, look at the first acronym that appears just before the list of numbers when you run xandr. In my case these were LVDS1 and VGA1 (the first is my laptop, the second ...

I created a 14.10 hotkey, and I copied a bootia32.efi file in the EFI/BOOT directory. After the installation was complete, I could only access the Grub menu.

Ok, First I thought maybe the problem was the Intel card driver. So I downloaded it from them, but then I saw that 14.04 was not a supported distro. So I've installed 15.04 (even if I prefer LTS) and now I see this: I haven't restarted yet :P

I updated Uubuntu on my laptop and the touchpad/mouse stopped working as well. After some searching, I found a temporary solution: With xinput you can see the input hardware. Then giving xinput --enable id you can enable the chosen device. I guess this is a bug of the last kernel, anyway.

I had the same problem in Ubuntu 15.04. This is how I solved it. First use ls /sys/class/backlight/ to see which video card is installed. In my case the above command showed intel_backlight. After this I did: sudo touch /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf # create 20-intel.conf file` sudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf #open the file ...

I think you what you need is Clonezilla which can backup the whole disk or only the selected partition (cant say it is a "Live CD/USB"). There are many tutorial available in the internet like this one. There is also Clonezilla live that allows you to use CD/DVD or USB flash drive to boot and run clonezilla. As alternatives you can try Systemback which will ...

This behaviour has been around since at least Ubuntu 14.04 (i.e. kernel 3.13) and is reported as Bug #1350513. On Sony models Ctrl+Alt+F1 and Ctrl+Alt+L can start the shut-down procedure; on Lenovo models it sends the system to sleeping mode. In all likelihood these are all symptoms of a same issue with the kernel. I would suggest you jump over to Launchpad ...

Did yo check your grub config files to see if Windows is listed? If it is not it might be a good idea to add windows entry in /etc/grub.d/40_custom using: menuentry ‘Windows 7′ { set root=’(hd0,msdos2)’ chainloader +1 } Update your grub after this. Note: Be careful in editing grub files and this can mess up your system if not done properly. ...

If yes, could you give me the list for the software please? Yes. And the answer is: ALL of them are incompatible. xUbuntu or any Linux based operating system is 100% different compared to Windows.
