Try i8042.nopnp as a kernel parameter at boot. If it works save it permanently in your /etc/default/grub file. Don't forget to run sudo update-grub afterwards.

Systemd and redis-sentinal disagreed on where the pid file was. My /etc/redis/sentinel.conf was listing the pid as /var/run/redis/redis-sentinel.pid, whereas systemd was looking for /var/run/sentinel/redis-sentinel.pid. As a result, systemd was killing redis-sentinel and restarting it over and over. I updated the sentinel.conf to point to the location ...

So here is the way to do this, I forgot that there is documentation on this somewhere on the Ubuntu forums. I figured I'd post it here for anyone looking to do this :) (this is for the sound theme "smooth", but it is easily adapted for almost any sound theme you want to install). I have also made a few relative changes, to make this more readable: Install ...

For start you can refer this nice HowTo: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DisklessUbuntuHowto Often it is possible to boot a live CD image - the .iso file - almost directly over PXE but details may differ between versions - try to google something like "boot Ubuntu xx.xx live image over PXE", etc.

This should point you in the right direction. Packages often come with pre- and post-install scripts. These integrate the package into the host system and are usually distribution-specific. AFAIK, (by default) alien does not setup these files to be run when the package is installed because they usually break things when run on another distro. This appears ...

Ahhhh this is interesting. I am strictly hardware and not into Ubuntu (except for however it may intersect with KiCad.) I use an old Logitech trackball. My main (select) click is a right click. It recently began double clicking when only a single was intended. Adjusting double click speed in Windows 10 did not help. About a week ago I built a simple ...

Turns out that the gtk theme I was using was no longer being developed and support ended on 16.04. I loaded a current Adapta gtk theme and all of the issues went away. Thank you @heynnema for the suggestion. Pointed me in the right direction :)

You will want to keep Gnome ...
