The following works for me, to convert X.kwd to X.doc. It must be run in a GUI terminal emulator (eg xterm) rather than a text terminal. unzip X.kwd maindoc.xml abiword -t X.odt maindoc.xml I then change the page size and margins in LibreOffice. I go to Format > Page..., set the width to 8.5in and height to 11in, and set each margin to 2, which means 2 ...

It might help to load arandr (the "Screen Layout Editor") and reorient your monitors using the gui. Let arandr generate an xrandr line for you (Layout --> Save As). arandr is apt-get if you don't already have it. If execution of the xrandr line displays the output of both monitors, the line can be appended to ~/.profile. Alternately, one can use the ...

Unfortunately, the issue is just because I installed Latte dock and one if its function replace emoji picker default shortcut. So the workaround is just to go to System Settings > Shortcut > Global Shortcuts > Emoji Selector. Then click Emoji Selector global cell, select Default.

Search for clues in the /proc/<PID> directory. Each process has it own directory in /proc/. Get the processes #, then navigate there and look around. Other commands such as ps -auxf, and pstree could help find the culprit. If that isn't helping then try "System settings->Desktop Session [Start with an empty session]" . Maybe after a few closed ...

While Ubuntu (running GNOME) uses seahorse and the GNOME keyring to auto import the SSH keys into your SSH Key Agent, it doesn't always do that when you're using Kubuntu or another desktop environment because of different management agents. For each of the SSH private keys in your SSH folder you want to use, you need to run ssh-add /home/$USER/.ssh/keyname ...

The solution requires two steps. Remove from fstab the partition(s) that no longer exist. To do this, run blkid in the terminal. Then open /etc/fstab with root privileges and look for the UUID(s) that were not listed by blkid. Delete the line(s) that contain those UUID(s). Save and close. Run this command in terminal: sudo update-initramfs -u That should ...

At your home terminal write chmod +x minimize.sh to make it executable. Create a desktop link to that ...

For your boot performance, see systemd-analyze. Your network chip likely uses a lot less power than your display. From my recent experience with Kubuntu 19.10, a good deal of power is wasted by the external GPU. If you have a system with both an integrated Intel GPU and an external NVidia GPU, there are ways to activate the NVidia chip only when needed (...

Well, this is pretty awkward! I remembered the Composition tab in System Settings > Display and Monitor > Compositor and changed the rendering backend from OpenGL 2.0 to OpenGL 3.1. Did a reboot, and everything works as intended with nVidia drivers! Screen 1 Screen 2 Pretty embarassing, but I hope this helps someone out there!

I'm glad to see that someone else has experienced EXACTLY the same problem that I have! And here's the work-around I found--not a solution, but it gets Kubuntu working. When you get to the point where the system hangs, you can switch to another TTY. I believe the system starts in TTY1, which is supposed to be the one used for the graphical interface. ...

Keyboard shortcuts in Ubuntu are composed of 1 or more modifier keys, and one regular key. A regular key produces a character or is assigned an action when pressed on its own. These include most keys on your keyboard. A modifier key is a key that does nothing on its own, but that is pressed in combination with a regular key to change its behaviour. Modifier ...

Use the partition's UUID instead of a device name in fstab If the external USB storage device is seen as /dev/sdb and /dev/sdb1 does not contain an ext4 file system, the last line in your fstab may cause problems. If you still want to connect an ext4 drive sometimes, it would be a better idea to use UUID instead of device name, and instead of none as ...

Synaptic as mentioned by @N0rbert, (with completely remove option) was the only way to fully remove all traces of Kubuntu. Everything worked perfectly.

You have to run it from application menu. You added it as widget, but you have to run as an application. Then it will appear in the bottom centre

As a complementary answer in relation to other answers and comments: Qapt Package Installer (qapt-deb-installer) is meant as similar to Gdebi, but, while it tells you when dependencies are missing, it doesn't list those missing dependencies. On the other hand (like Gdebi) it tells you what supplementary dependencies are installed when executing a deb file....

I don't have my 18.04 computer with me this second, but under Settings -> Display (I think) there should be a resolution option. There is certainly a kde menu for resolution somewhere under settings.

I had the same problem and I just fixed it. The reason for this behavior in my case was that /usr/sbin/hibernate script always requires to be run as root and because of this you must type sudo hibernate to run it. When you are pressing a button in the power menu, you are doing it without root privileges. To fix this I did the following: I added alias ...

In my Kubuntu 19.10, /etc/init/sddm.conf appears to contain script code instead of config variables. /etc/sddm.conf did exist, perhaps because this is based on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS that came with the XPS 13: $ cat /etc/sddm.conf [Autologin] Relogin=false Session= User= [General] HaltCommand= RebootCommand= [Theme] Current=ubuntu-theme CursorTheme=...

This works for me. LibreOffice delay could be dependent on samba share mounting method mounting options.

As per comments on the original question, your problem differs from mine, so it's pretty unlikely this will help you, but in case it helps anyone else: I booted into a linux USB, connected to a secured wifi on there, then simply rebooted into my installed version. (Wifi autoconnected as it had been working for me before.) I have no idea why or how it ...

This doesn't deserve an answer, but I don't have the reputation to comment.

Both the 435 driver from Ubuntu repositories and the 440 from ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa are proprietary Nvidia drivers. None of them are free. You can pick any of those and test. There shouldn't be much difference. But the 440 are the latest with some improvements that you can see at Nvidia site.

tl;dr Just create a shortcut for spectacle -gr. Explanation Kubuntu uses Spectacle for screenshots. The problem is that when you run it through Shift+PrtScr it doesn't start in GUI mode. If you run spectacle -h you can see that it can be started in GUI mode with the -g option and in rectangular region capture mode with the -r option. So just create a ...

It seems that I found a possible solution to my problem. I just used this guide, in order to create 'Ctrl + Middle click' hotkey in my ~/.xbindkeysrc file. Xbindkey and Xdotools are required.

I have solved this by playing around in the BIOS. I believe disabling and reenabling Wireless Button State did the trick for me. Differences: I am using Arch, not Ubuntu. The LED remained white, not orange. I am not sure which generation I am using but I believe it's an older one. More Details: I was able to bind the button e.g. in i3/sway config with ...

File '/home/da/dainit' not found (OS errno 13 - Permission denied That should be pretty easy: that file is not owned by your mysql user. Mysql has its own user and requires files you want to access to be owned by that user. sudo chown mysql:adm /home/da/dainit would fix it. (mysql:adm are defaults; if you changed those change to what you need)

I tried various things like go into BIOS, turn off WiFi and Bluetooth, restart, turn them on and boot into the system; reload Bluetooth services; edit some configuration files, etc. But what helps in my case is to tell the kernel to reload the btusb module.: sudo modprobe -r btusb sudo modprobe btusb
