  1. [ubuntu] Re: Software Updater running daily despite settings specifying otherwise

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately when I look at Startup Applications, Gnome Software didn't appear there. It occurs to me that in my original post I should have mentioned that I use GNOME...
  2. [ubuntu] Software Updater running daily despite settings specifying otherwise

    Ever since I upgraded to 16.04, Software Updater has been running daily even though its settings specify a different frequency. I've tried various settings - weekly, fortnightly, never - all to no...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: XFCE 14.04 - no Network Manager applet in panel

    Ignore me! Either I'm going mad or my netbook is. I've now realised that although the symptoms I was seeing seemed identical to the original poster's, the problem was different (I'm not running...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: XFCE 14.04 - no Network Manager applet in panel

    As I (appear to) have the same problem as you had, I've been trying to apply the solution that worked for you. The first problem I encountered was that the reference to "Indicator plugin" did not...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Gnome Flashback desktop environments display only the desktop after ugrade to 14.

    Thanks (and while I remember it, thanks for your posting about configuring Gnome Classic in 12.04 - it was very useful when I upgraded from 10.04 18 months ago). In the process of trying to do 1(a)...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Gnome Flashback desktop environments display only the desktop after ugrade to 14.

    Using dconf-editor on both the 14.04 system and a 12.04 system, I suspect I have found the cause of the problem, but not the solution.

    On the 12.04 system the schema org.gnome.gnome-panel.layout...

  8. [ubuntu] Re: Eye of Gnome aka EOG does not open some jpgs.

    This is a problem I've also experienced, but I don't think it's specific to certain files. I'll try to explain why I say that. For the last four years I've intermittently experienced this scenario:...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Mobile broadband working on one Lucid system, but not another

    Success! I removed the broken link, i.e.

    rm -f /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/twisted/plugins/notestplugin.py

    and rebooted, and mobile broadband is now working.

    I believe I can also now...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Mobile broadband working on one Lucid system, but not another

    I've been investigating further and that has led me to the following:

  11. [SOLVED] Re: Mobile broadband working on one Lucid system, but not another

    Just a quick update to say that I've discovered that modem-manager is replaced when installing bcm. The failure of the modem-manager to start coincides to the second with the installation of...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Mobile broadband working on one Lucid system, but not another

    Based on some investigating I've been doing, I've come to the following conclusions (you'll note that they contradict earlier assumptions):

    It's probably not a file protection issue.

    I've been considering how I could test this hypothesis. The only method I can see would be...

  14. [SOLVED] Re: Mobile broadband working on one Lucid system, but not another

    Here's the result of comparing the lsmod output for the two systems.

    On the desktop I did

    and copied the file over to the netbook where I then did:

  16. [SOLVED] Mobile broadband working on one Lucid system, but not another

    Is it by any chance the case that this functionality only appears in 10.04? I recently found a web page that was talking about the intention to scrap the Desktop Switcher and replace it in Lucid by...

    Thanks. I'll take a look at that option and decide whether the Live USB route will allow me to check what I want to check.
