  1. [ubuntu] Re: Getting Brother DCP-7040 scanner functions working

    Ah, thanks I had missed that. That hasn't got scanning working but it has changed the behaviour.

    I made those changes then rebooted. Now when I try to scan in simple-scan it comes up with the...

    [ubuntu] nautilus usb window switch

    This is a very minor issue which I am, nonetheless, finding somewhat annoying. Under Ubuntu 16.04 when I insert a usb thumb drive it launches a window of nautilus displaying the contents of the...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: DVD not mounting/unmounting correctly

    Agreed. In most recent Ubuntu installs I've done the DVDs have just worked, with no messing around. Don't know what was different this time.

  8. [ubuntu] DVD not mounting/unmounting correctly

    Hello,
    This is similar to some other problems reported but the details of the symptoms are different and other posts I've looked at haven't resolved the problem for me. I can get a DVD to play...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 on AMD A10-5745M APU - unexpected shutdown

    The problem persisted for a month or two. But now it has been many weeks since is has spontaneously restarted. So I think regular updates have resolved the issue without me doing anything. I'll...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 on AMD A10-5745M APU - unexpected shutdown

    Would upgrading to an "upstream" version of the kernel possibly help?

    Edit: ...by which I mean a "mainline" kernel. For example, it looks like it would be easy to upgrade from my current...

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 on AMD A10-5745M APU - unexpected shutdown

    Hmm...at this stage I've got so much on this machine (I've been getting a lot of work done on it) that I'm pretty committed to getting 14.04 working and I think starting over with 15.04 will eat up...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 on AMD A10-5745M APU - unexpected shutdown

    Given that it installed cleanly from a live boot of 14.04 I have no reason to believe that it wouldn't live boot to 15.04. But where would that get me? I'm perfectly willing to do it, but I'd like...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 on AMD A10-5745M APU - unexpected shutdown

  18. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 on AMD A10-5745M APU - unexpected shutdown

    ...and another one, this time with only Firefox open. psensor said 58 C.

    I have been mis-speaking. It is actually restarting, not shutting down.

  24. [ubuntu] Re: everything freezes and then all windows moved to same workspace

    OK, that's more or less what I figured. This is, at most, a minor annoyance. I actually really like Unity (which I know will make many readers scoff). So I think I'll just put up with this one...
