    Because there's a game called chromium, the web browser package is actually chromium-browser. Try apt-get removing that instead. Unless of course you knew that, in which case, ignore me.

    There was a discussion on Lubuntu Facebook Group about that. When a user tries to remove Chromium from Lubuntu, the system will install Firefox instead even if the user will NOT ask for it. Try that yourself

    Ah. The mixed blessing and curse of (I think) update-alternatives. I'd forgotten about that. Sorry!

    Re: Lubuntu - One Stop Thread

    Two points that I have discovered with 12.04 Lubuntu on 7 of my 9 systems that I upgraded to 12.04:

    1. PCMANFM is crashing 10 times more often than 11.10, but at least now it is doing so gracefully - without locking everything up
    2. Notification Daemon crashes happen 2-4 times/hr, no matter what I am doing'


    Systems that I have upgraded range from a 2004 1GB Toshiba Satellite Laptop to a 24 core 96GB RAM beast.

    Two clean installs, five upgrades.

    Anyone else seeing this? I see a massive amount of notification daemon bug reports on Launchpad.

    One last thing, auto login didn't work on one upgrade. I compared the .conf to the one created with a clean install and they are identical. One-off bug? Ruined a whole day for me though.
    The future will soon be a thing of the past.

    autologin is now handled by lightdm, so you might need to config that

    Fix to any Lubuntu user that has Alsa selecting wrong sound card as default

    Go to the terminal and check to see which sound device it picked up

    Code:
    alsamixer
    In my case it picked up my usb mic and my eyetoy webcam as default

    now to find out the name of the device go to the terminal and type in

    Code:
    less /proc/asound/modules
    In my case it was named snd_usb_audio

    now become a super user with this command

    Code:
    sudo su
    now type in

    Code:
    nano /etc/modprobe.d/sound
    It should bring you to a terminal text editor now in this text editor type in

    Code:
    options name_of_offending_device index=1
    So in my case it's

    Code:
    options snd_usb_audio index=1
    Reboot and it should load the correct sound device!

    Thumbs down Re: Lubuntu - One Stop Thread

    I also hate it when people make more than one application with the same exact name. Thank you Terminal for helping to eliminate that problem.

    Lubuntu 12.04 on a Samsung Netbook NP 150

    Code:
    # lxkeymap
    does not start the program but produces, in the terminal, the following output:

    Code:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/lxkeymap", line 628, in <module>
        window = LxkeymapWindow()
      File "/usr/bin/lxkeymap", line 86, in __new__
        new_object.finish_initializing(builder)
      File "/usr/bin/lxkeymap", line 156, in finish_initializing
        self.config.set('Global', 'Variant', self.variant_current[0])
    IndexError: list index out of range
    Any ideas in regard?

    Maybe try "sudo lxkeymap".
