  1. [ubuntu] Hover click turns on at random (Ubuntu 12.04)

    Hi,

  2. Hover click turns on at random (Ubuntu 12.04)

    Hi,

    I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit workstation on an HP EliteBook 8540w laptop. Up until yesterday I didn't know that hover click existed. Now I have had it turn on twice without any explicit...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: laptop HP EliteBook 8540w has random power-off after upgrade to 11.04 64bit

    The power-offs started to happen more frequently then other weird boot/power related things so I finally got HP to fix it under warranty. Two motherboards and an HDD later it appears to be fixed....
  4. Re: installing 12.10 from ISO USB stick - graphics driver problem

    Thanks. (BTW my screen resolution was so poor that I didn't recognise the little man and keyboard icons until after reading your description.)

    I have progressed. I was able to install 12.10...
  5. installing 12.10 from ISO USB stick - graphics driver problem

    Hi,

    I am attempting to install Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit desktop from the install ISO on a USB stick to an HP 8540w laptop. The installer boots and shows the purple ubuntu splash screen with the loading...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 11.10 no longer automounts USB drives, CDs and DVDs

    I have the same problem - 11.10/64 used to automount DVDs fine. It stopped automounting after I tried using some crazy-formatted DVDs written by a malfunctioning PVR. Now when I load a good DVD it...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: laptop HP EliteBook 8540w has random power-off after upgrade to 11.04 64bit

    Thanks kimdh. I'll be interested to hear what happens with your new computer.

    I had noticed that core temperature can spike very rapidly but hadn't noticed this happening while idling on my PC. ...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: laptop HP EliteBook 8540w has random power-off after upgrade to 11.04 64bit

    Just in case anyone else is still reading this thread:

    I'm reasonably certain that this is a hardware problem - I have a dual-boot system (Ubuntu 11.10 and the HP Windows 7 that came...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot Convert Outlook to Evolution

    OK - I did it! I imported my PST files to Evolution 3.2.1 on Ubuntu 11.10, but it was a reasonably tedious, brute force process. (However, I am fairly clueless about most of this, so there may have...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot Convert Outlook to Evolution

    FWIW the import PST plugin was present in the version of evolution available on Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty) and worked fine for me. It looks like the PST import filter has disappeared on past Ubuntu...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: laptop HP EliteBook 8540w has random power-off after upgrade to 11.04 64bit

    Thanks for that. I'll have to dig out the warranty.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: laptop HP EliteBook 8540w has random power-off after upgrade to 11.04 64bit

    Sadly, that didn't fix the issue for me. A couple of days after making that change my Elitebook restarted itself while I was off having lunch yesterday.

    Is there some sort of diagnostic log I...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: laptop HP EliteBook 8540w has random power-off after upgrade to 11.04 64bit

    Thanks nomiz.

    I have added the pcie_aspm=force argument to grub and now I just wait and see what happens.

    I had presumed it was not an overheating problem because the power-off sometimes...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: laptop HP EliteBook 8540w has random power-off after upgrade to 11.04 64bit

    I spoke too soon - I had a power-off yesterday. So I am back to the initial problem. The other two issues mentioned in the initial post have gone away with the upgrade to 11.10 and I am left with...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: laptop HP EliteBook 8540w has random power-off after upgrade to 11.04 64bit

    It's a long time since I looked at this, but from memory I had to do something to enable the monitoring. Temperatures of 0C meant that the monitoring was disabled. (Sorry, I can't remember at the...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: "Open Containing Folder" not working properly

    Thanks mc4man!



    That worked for me. I had upgraded from 11.04 to 11.10 and Banshee started launching in contexts where I expected to see a folder. The most annoying was in Firefox downloads -...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: random recoverable red screen in Unity 11.04 64bit

    This turned out to be bug #812040

    I upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10 and the problem went away. I have no idea if this is because the problem was intentionally fixed or some other changes incidentally...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu won't boot every second time

    FWIW I just put up with the behaviour and now that I have upgraded Ubuntu from 11.04 to 11.10 the problem has gone away.

    I don't know that that counts as a fix, more like walking away from your...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: laptop HP EliteBook 8540w has random power-off after upgrade to 11.04 64bit

    Thanks again. I have enabled coretemp and rebooted and am showing core and GPU temperatures around 50C. I also installed psensor to give me a moving chart display.
  20. [ubuntu] Re: laptop HP EliteBook 8540w has random power-off after upgrade to 11.04 64bit

    Thanks for that. The laptop is currently running pretty cool:

  21. [ubuntu] Re: laptop HP EliteBook 8540w has random power-off after upgrade to 11.04 64bit

    I suspect not, on the grounds that the PC hasn't been doing anything particularly demanding when the power has disappeared and I don't recall this problem happening before I upgraded from 10.10 to...

    Update on the encrypted disk failure message at shutdown. That appears to probably be normal (see this Debian bug report: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=600922)
