comment Ubuntu 14.04 taking a lot of time to start
Right, so there's no sysctl command for that? I just recall /proc isn't like most root directories, and not all files can just be edited. (though wouldn't it be great if I could just edit /proc/meminfo like that and add more memory hehe)

comment Looking for a native PDF reader with XFA support
This is not a duplicate of the linked question. It certainly does not have an answer on the linked answer. The answers listed in the linked question (PDFEdit, Xournal) can even successfully open a PDF document that uses XFA. The linked question makes no reference to XFA.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 taking a lot of time to start
How would you tweak perf_cpu_time_max_percent? I see it listed in /proc/sys/kernel/perf_cpu_time_max_percent but don't imagine one should edit that file. Does this involve tweaking the kernel directly?

comment HDMI is not displayed in the “Sound” settings on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Not sure why you suggest installing NVIDIA binaries -- nothing in the Oso's question seems to suggest this is an NVIDIA card. I believe the Dell he describes, the XPS M1330, has integrated Intel GMA graphics (cnet.com/products/dell-xps-m1330/specs)

comment Laggy/jumpy/erratic bluetooth mouse in Ubuntu 15.04
This impacts me as well -- I lose the bluetooth connection entirely on the new dell xps-13-dev edition, ubuntu 15.04, after suspend. Toggling bluetooth off and on (Fn+PrtScr) seems to bring bluetooth back up.

Note that this same error also occurs when using duplicity directly with Amazon S3. Also note that installing the latest boto using pip install instead of apt-get still does not resolve the issue.

@Jan Yes, python-boto is installed; and yes, other backup methods work fine.

comment How do I encrypt an external (USB) hard drive in 14.04?
@bodhi.zazen Right, I just meant to point out that this is not a duplicate of a dependency problem because the user has already installed the software, the said software just has a different name.

comment How to encrypt external devices?
@Pabi Thanks for the detailed answer but this doesn't seem to reflect the changes to gnome-disk-utility for Ubuntu 14.04. The interface is rather different; this closely matches the 12.04 directions. In 14.04, disk utility has been renamed "disks", and lacks a lot of these options as far as I can tell.

@bodhi.zazen This isn't a duplicate of the issue you link; the disk utility is now called "disks" on 14.04 and doesn't have the options described in the thread the user links.

I've encountered this same issue. The GUI Disk-Utility has been overhauled rather drastically and no longer has the encryption options listed by that documentation (or most other documentation for this task that I can find).

No HDMI profile in the Configuration tab for me.
