  1. [kubuntu] Very useful information

    Thanks to The Fu for lots of useful information. The context here is apparent misbehavior by a program (Dropbox) I didn't write. I naturally expected that "Open Dropbox Folder" would do just that. ...
  2. [kubuntu] Confused handlling of file associations

    I'm running Kubuntu 14.04 and also Dropbox. I encountered what seemed to be a problem with Dropbox but really is a problem with how Unbuntu handles file associations.

    The precipitating event was...
  3. [kubuntu] versus Oracle website

    Is actually Oracle's website for VirtualBox? In other words, is there any difference between what you can get by going to versus what you can get by going to
  4. [kubuntu]

    Does the website contain all the Oracle files relating to VirtualBox, and nothing else?
  5. [kubuntu] Differences among versions

    At one time the version of VirtualBox in the repositories was missing some functionality that was available in the Oracle version. Is that still the case?
  6. [kubuntu] VirtualBox 5.1.2 under Kubuntu 14.04 --DANGER!!!

    I've manage to install VirtualBox 5.1.2 under Kubuntu 14.04, but not without a major disruption. I retrieved it from the VirtualBox website and followed the defaults to use QApt Package Installer to...

    I still can't get USB to work, even though I think I've done all the necessary things:

    1. I installed V 5.1.12 r112440 (Qt5.6.1) from the VirtualBox website.

    2. I installed the Extension Pack...

    [SOLVED] Copy the configuration from your home directory to /root

    This is a bit old, I know, but I did solve the problem by sudo cp -a /home/pwa/.config /root. It turns out that initially, /root is totally empty. That surprised me.
  9. [SOLVED] Phonon is the key

    I found this on AskUbuntu and it worked for me:

    To enable Bluetooth audio device discovery in Pulse Audio we need to make sure we had loaded the bluetooth packages for pulseaudio...
  10. [SOLVED] The settings are grayed out

    I can't find anything with the literal name "Sound Settings" within System Settings". Under "Audio Playback Device Preference for the Music Category", the headphones appear but they are greyed out. ...
  11. [SOLVED] Setting output destination for Bluetooth headphones

    I'm running Kubuntu 14.04 and I have a pair of Bluetooth headphones. I've succeeded in pairing the phones to the computer --both the phones and System Settings confirm that. How do I actually...
  12. [kubuntu] Different wallpaper on different desktops

    I've been running Kubuntu 14.04 because as far as I know it's the latest version of Kubuntu that allows different wallpapers on different desktops without adding any additional packages. I...

    [SOLVED] Problem was with Dolphin and kate, not Firefox

    I got a little confused -- the problem showed up in dolphin and kate, not Firefox. It's often useful to run those programs in superuser mode -- in fact, I have desktop icons for "root dolphin" and...

    [SOLVED] Fonts for superuser mode

    When I start Firefox or Dolphin in superuser mode, I don't get the fonts that I normally use. The preferences I've set don't seem to apply. How can I configure those fonts?

  16. [kubuntu] Caught in the act. I think.

    I've captured the section of syslog that seems to show just how the connection is being lost, but I don't know how to interpret it. It is here:
  17. [kubuntu] Still no success

    I tried your suggestion and I still get occasional dropouts. Here is my ath9.conf file:

    options ath9k nohwcrypt=1

    and here is iwlwifi.conf:
    options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1

    I should say,...

  19. [kubuntu] Re: Still no joy

    I tried the selective search of syslog you recommended and it showed nothing of interest. But perhaps I need to try it again the next time the connection drops. Now that I've nixed IPV6, it...
  20. [kubuntu] ipv6 has been disabled, still there are problems

    Sorry I was unclear in my last post "Still no joy". I have disabled ipv6 and I still have problems. The syslog excerpt in that post seems to have nothing to do with ipv6. However, before I...
  21. [kubuntu] Still no joy

    Here's what's in syslog after the latest failure:

  22. [kubuntu] IPv6 may be the problem

    I just discovered this in /var/log/syslog:

    NetworkManager[1060]: <info> (wlan0): IP6 addrconf timed out or failed.

    So I've disabled IPV6 in Network Manager. I'll see if the problem recurs. ...
  23. [kubuntu] Sad news

    Alas, after a few hours of untroubled operation, I encountered a drop-out again. If it's relevant, my router is a TP-Link WR841N. And I only see the problem in Kubuntu 14.x.
  24. [kubuntu] Is it working?

    I've made the changes you suggested and my wireless connection is working -- for now. The problem, as usual, is how to determine if it's really working. I've had the experience before of making...
  25. [kubuntu] Also in 15.04/15.10

    Here's the link:

    Note that the problem in both 14 and 15 is inconsistent: it looks as though it's been solved and then it turns out it hasn't...
