As @James Reid says: this has been fixed with the latest 5.0 kernel. Now we have Ubuntu 18.04.3 with 5.0.0-31 kernel. Just run: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y to get the last kernel version.

Evolution doesn't have its own themes. Selecting a dark GTK+ 3.0 theme should cover most of the UI, but mail and composer views may not follow as they are web views.

As suggested in comments, converting .jpg to a .png file fixed the issue. .png is a more native file format for Linux and .jpg is a more native file format for Windows. That said the file conversion software may have removed "noise" from the .jpg file when converting it to .png format. If there was "noise" what it was is anyone's guess. If you are in a ...

There is something basic missing here, .m3u format itself is a list of shortcuts/URL's. No need going in such long way. Right click on that link and save as copy of A03H.mp3.m3u file.

A simpler workaround if update and patch not possible or inconvenient. Create a wrapper script in HOME folder with same name zenity. (Check $PATH, for exact ~/.../bin location). Filter out calls with mutter-dialog or specific argument by checking parameters. Pass all other calls to original zenity (/usr/bin/zenity $@) Reference: RH bug: Annoying zenity "...

I've a Sun type 6 keyboard that is showing the same kind of annoying behaviour. (especially the PgDn Key generating 'Next' + 'KP_Enter' events). But it is intermittent.

Probably what happens is that you have some Windows-style line endings in your file. Maybe the file was copied from a Windows system at some point, or you are using a text editor that uses Windows-style line endings by default? Anyway, I am able to reproduce the behavior if I add such line endings in a similar file. One way to fix it is to use the dos2unix ...

"Ubuntu Dock" is forked from the extension "Dash to Dock", and accordingly uses it settings.

GPT does not support extended partitions. GPT does not need extended partitions, as the limit of four primary partitions in MBR/ms-dos was removed with GPT. "MBR also only supports up to four primary partitions—if you want more, you have to make one of your primary partitions an “extended partition” and create logical partitions inside it. This is a silly ...

The way I see it the output you shared are the reasons for the delay in boot. You can switch off / uninstall (Bluetooth for example) or install the correct drivers. Try looking up for each error on Google. You can also disable the respective services like Bluetoothd. There is a lot of information regarding that on Google. But I too get a black screen ...

With MBR alias MSDOS partition table you can have only 4 primary partitions.One of them could be an extended partition, which is a container for logical partitions, so that you can have more than 4 partitions. You have 4 partitions already, and one of them is an extended partition. I think you can have only one extended partition. So you should increase ...

My ubuntu18.04 came into the same problem. After contacting to Dell tech support, I ensured that this had nothing to do with the hardware. It is about BIOS upgrading, which should has been 'updated natively in the OS' (like clicking 'update' from UI).

I bought a slightly different model: the Geo Flex 11.6 inch. It has the same type of touchpad.

I found that Ubuntu Mate 19.04 works great. The answer by Michael P contains useful advice: ensure ...

Did you look at any Dell specific instructions (Any Dell version). You typically need to update UEFI, update SSD firmware Then add AHCI driver to Windows and change RAID/Intel RST in UEFI. You have to have fast start up off in Windows (and probably bitlocker). And usually better to have fast boot off in UEFI as that assumes no configuration changes. And if ...
