    Re: Known Jaunty Jackalope bugs with workarounds

    Some users are experiencing a shutdown hang when their wireless card is loaded.

    The work around is to disable the card:

    I prefer to use the following:

    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
    note: This make the assumption that your wireless card is wlan0

    I can do the same with the cylinder, only the top. The cap acts like a desktop withour panels. (I haven't tried alt-F2 yet, just thought of it)
    But you can get out of that desktop with ctrl-alt left mouse.Is this even a bug? Does it really matter? I uses it as a fast way to lock the screen, as long as I don't show anyone how to get out of it, it's locked.

    Looks fine to me but then I don't know/care what you run

    Many people have reported this bug.

    Quick fix:
    Use the command:

    then connect the camera.

    Long-term fix:
    Prevent the process from starting. Use the command:
    I see, from the gphoto website, that libgphoto2 has been upgraded to 2.4.5 on 4/2/09 (we currently have 2.4.2 installed). Maybe a bug fix is in there? Reading the release notes, it is not obvious to me if this was addressed.

    In the launchpad bu report the bug is tagged as fix commited so i guess a fix will soon hit the repositories if not done yet.

    See this thread for a workaround that doesn't require you to manually unload the driver every time before you shut down.

    Evolution hangs and calendar data gets irreversibly corrupted when attempting to modify recursive event. Discussed in this thread.

    Workaround: do not modify, just delete and make a new one.

    Bug: Wubi repeatedly complains "no disk" with "Cancel, Try again, Continue" on some systems with card readers
    Launchpad entry: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/365881

    One work-around: Use Windows' "Safely remove hardware" to disconnect card reader and try again
    Another work-around: Bypass Wubi and install Ubuntu into its own partition
