  1. Trying to install Trusty HWE - impossible without losing Wine, nvidia-331, zsnes

    After looking at a lot of threads, I try using this command line to circumvent the dependency issues that a lot of people have recently encountered when trying to upgrade to the Trusty HWE in...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: discovered the source of those goutputstream files

    I've noticed that even though I use atril instead of evince, I still get these files, and /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.evince still exists. Perhaps Atril can/does use Evince's profile?
  3. [xubuntu] Re: With 3.13 kernel, keyboard intermittently doesn't work at login screen

    Some of the information from hwinfo. Can someone tell me whether this means my laptop's keyboard is PS/2, USB or other? (or how to find out if this doesn't provide the necessary info)

  4. [xubuntu] With 3.13 kernel, keyboard intermittently doesn't work at login screen

    Some time ago, I installed linux-headers-generic-lts-trusty and linux-image-generic-lts-trusty on my Precise laptop. Using these to boot into kernel 3.13, although the keyboard works OK at the Grub...

    I'm coming a bit late to this thread, but I've been having keyboard problems in Precise ever since upgrading to 3.13 (on one out of every two boots, it won't respond to keyboard input - which I...

    Re: gdb 7.6 in Precise

    Decided I was being overcautious, and installed it anyway.

    CC="gcc-4.8" CXX="g++-4.8" make

    gdb 7.6 in Precise

    I've recently installed gcc 4.8 from the Toolchain repository (, and have noticed that when I compile with -g, the debugging symbols aren't...
  8. Re: Unable to see debug symbols inspite using -g flag

    Have you tried compiling with -g -gdwarf-2 to get the DWARF debugging symbols in an older format which may not have compatibility issues with gdb?

  10. [SOLVED] Re: Updates fail: libgl1-mesa-dev has broken dependencies but can't be removed.

    Fixed it - going into Synaptic and choosing to reinstall libgl1-mesa-dev instead of removing it allows four of the eight updates to be applied simultaneously. Update Manager can then be used to apply...

  13. [ubuntu] Loud fan noise in 12.04, advice on possible workaround

    The fan noise on my laptop has always been unusually loud when running Ubuntu, even though there's rarely a particularly high load...
  14. Re: #include and #include in the SAME FILE?

    Thanks everyone.

    dwhitney and spjackson: I don't have the C++11 standard (too expensive), but I checked the "working draft" (N3337) and it's not good news:

    [ubuntu] Re: How to get Firefox 17 on Ubuntu 11.04

    Why can't you just mark FF16 for removal in Synaptic (but not complete removal), and apply the change? This should remove FF16 but leave your profile in place (though back up ~/.mozilla just to be...

    [all variants] Re: firefox-gnome-support

    Apologies for delay in replying - I've found out what was causing the Recent Documents problem, and it wasn't firefox-gnome-support or xul-ext-ubufox. I thought I'd better post an explanation here...
  18. [all variants] Re: Applications in gnome-terminal freeze when Terminal window loses focus

    Partly a bump - surely *someone* else must have encountered this issue?

    [ubuntu] Re: Unity and Gnome Classic

    I'm a tad hesitant because I am having some teething problems, but in my opinion MATE is very close indeed to the original GNOME 2, and while it does have a few problems there aren't many of them and...
