The solution to my problem reported above is to use Ubuntu 20.10 that already has vcgencmd configured and operational. In my first attempt to use this version, I found that Kivy fade transition was jerky and not smooth which caused me to abort using this version. What I found in my second attempt to use 20.10 is that only the first Kivy fade exhibited the ...

I removed these by removing the package: 'package-update-indicator' I.e. sudo apt remove package-update-indicator You can check if this is the culprit by seeing if it is running: ps aux | grep package-update-indicator and then killing the process.

I get this issue on systems that use the onboard graphics. Typically an application, often Chrome when moving the window, will get stuck and the window manager stops responding. When this happens, CTRL-ALT-F1 and run top, and the window manager and the application will both be pegging the CPU. Often I can just kill the application that is causing this ...

Yes the difference (3.8.5 vs 3.8.2) matters. The upgrade tool is written & tested for the python3 version installed with the release. If the python3 version is changed, the results may not be trustworthy or fail (all testing if python3 is changed fall on you to perform with the version you have installed; the tool is tested only with the version ...

The link given by @Terrance above should help you prepare your hard disk to accept Ubuntu, and there are several other websites that deal with it, so I won't go into that here. Apart from the important requirements to make sure that Secure Boot is disabled in your BIOS/UEFI, and to make sure that Windows fast start-up is disabled, Acer BIOS/UEFI has an extra ...

The availability of the XFCE lock screen(s) DEPENDS on the window manager! lightdm is NOT capable according to an error message first seen in U20.10. gdm3 IS capable to enable the lock screen. So the issue is partly resolved: It DEPENDS on the window manager.

I would recommend you to use two panels in XFCE4. I think there's no such panel plugin. That's why using plank or dockbarx will fullfil our necessities. For performance plank will use 15.3 MB Memory and XFCE4-panel will use 64.5 MB Memory of your system. Attaching whisper menu to plank is not that much productive because when we click on the whisker menu ...

I've had a similar problem with a single computer. What fixed it was putting the USB dongle on an extension USB cord (~3 ft.) so that dongle (1) is away from the computer, and (2) has relatively clear path of transmission to the mouse. I am guessing that the computer generates electrical noise that can interfere with the signal. Also, before moving it, ...

You can control which key is bind to desktop zooming at Window Manager Tweaks > Accessibility > Key used to grab and move windows. You can even select "none" so that it effectively disables desktop zooming, but that will disable the mentioned window grabbing function, too. Someone has requested ability to configure a distinct key for the ...

To the excellent comments from my colleagues, can you check what is the status of your memory?. free -h The reason is that you can expect random processes to be killed if memory is starving, but also I've seen core parts of the system going mad (or stressed) under heavy swap to disk. I don't think is a hardware problem, as you can move the mouse, I think ...

Great news everyone! I was stuck on the solutions on the internet, until I completed the package. sudo apt remove libsdl2-dev:amd64 Don't worry, I immediately reinstalled it using sudo apt install libsdl2-dev:amd64.

You can copy the files over to /tmp with the user you have using WinScp. Once the files are copied to /tmp, you can ssh to the vps using the same user, then copy the file to location of your choice using sudo cp /tmp/<file> /<locationOfYourChoice>. You might have to change the permissions of the file to the user of choice using chmod AND/OR chown....

I would look into ~/.xinitrc, but there is a myriad of other possibilities depending on your window manager or desktop environment (see, for example, How do I set Xmodmap on login?). There is not enough information in the question to find it out. But remapping CapsLock to Escape is one of the canonical mappings provided by the the XKB extension, as listed in ...

You can see the terminal pressing CTRL + ALT + F1 (F1 to F6) normally. You may be able to access via SSH if you installed openssh. If this give you too much trouble get the micro SD, mount it with the laptop and modify the files you may need to restore. However if I were you, unless you enjoy investigating why it failed, I would just toast another micro SD ...

It's correct, you must keep the timezone field in blank or write the exact time zone name. Any other word will turn the clock to the UTC time. For example, if you put "New York" as the time zone, then the clock will show UTC time because it is not a standard time zone name. So instead you must put "America/New_York".

In your wireless script, we see: NetworkManager is not installed (package "network-manager"). Using the connected ethernet, open a terminal and do: sudo apt update sudo apt install network-manager Reboot. Clicking the Network Manager icon at the top right should now permit you to connect easily with wireless or ethernet.
