I've been having this same problem in the last releases of Ubuntu. Right now, I have Ubuntu 21.10 installed and it still has it. Trying the solution from @wazeredo46 did not work for me. But I managed to find some sort of solution. I have dual boot with Windows 10, and apparently Ubuntu does not like that. The partition it is always checking at boot is the ...

Many thanks for using the client just refer to it as 'onedrive' or 'onedrive' by abraunegg. I'm currently in college and one class is making me use npm/angular. The issue is that angular needs a lot of dependencies(?) that creates tons of small files. Small files is the OneDrive API Achilles' heel - it does not handle these well due to how the API ...

Firstly, this does not prevent the user from logging in. You just type your username and password like you usually would. Fixing this is purely for aesthetics.

In summary, sudo mkdir /etc/systemd/system/getty@tty1/service.d sudo vim /etc/systemd/system/getty@tty1/service.d/cloud-init_wait.conf Then ...

I have been using Ubuntu for the last 2 years. I faced the issue of the freezing screen after unlocking the laptop. I tried various steps but nothing works for very long. Upgrading to SSD (solid-state drive) from a normal mechanical hard drive (HDD) has solved this problem for me. It has been 8 months, I didn't face any problems so far.

Same problem for me with ubuntu 20.04, kernel 5.11.0 and Nvidia driver 470.74 : black screen when trying to resume after suspend. As stated here the installation using command line and not driver install GUI do the job. The server version of the driver has drawback for me as it do not manage color profile for the monitor (which make sense for a server). sudo ...

You are using a mainline kernel, not an Ubuntu kernel. You can't install headers for it from Ubuntu repositories. You need to install headers from the place you got the kernel image files. Nvidia drivers are unlikely to build against the newest mainline kernel.

Most probably the kernel-driver for your wifi card gets stuck, thus it needs to be restartet like this answer suggests. Your wifi-driver has the name rtl8188ee so the command will be: sudo modprobe -r rtl8188ee && sleep 5s && sudo modprobe -a rtl8188ee Please comment this answer if this didn't improve the situation after a power-outage.

Based on the discussion with @terdon, I've figured out that I can use xmodmap -e "keycode 0x31 = dead_circumflex dead_abovering grave notsign U2032 U2033 bar bar" to turn the degree symbol on the upper-leftmost key into a dead key, i.e. I can now either type that key twice for a regular degree symbol, or type it once followed by "a" to ...

The reason you do not need to enter sudo passwords for upgrades in modern systems is because these processes currently are managed through Polkit (formerly called PolicyKit). This is a mechanism that checks if a request, i.e. for updating, is authorized or not. That is defined through polkit rules. Firefox is by default installed through the APT package ...

It turned out that it happens because of my windows installation on the same machine along side of the ubuntu. Every time I switch between ubuntu and windows I face this problem.

There is a subtle built-in privacy shutter just above the camera. (It looks like a CDS cell when closed, if you know what that looks like.) Shift it to the left and you should be able to see yourself.

There indeed are no other keyboard bindings than the Space you discovered, and there seems no user exposed way to add different bindings without resorting to browser extensions.

Since its a new install you hopefully dont have a lot of precious data on it, but go ahead and make a backup anyway.. If you really mean partition, and not volume, you should be able to just fire up gparted and shrink the existing partition (which will shrink the filesystem for you too), then create a new partition in the new free space. If you cant do this, ...
