  2. [ubuntu] After startup, logging out is required in order for keyboard shortcuts to work

    There are a few keyboard shortcuts I have set up in 16.04 and upon powering up the computer they only work after logging out and back in. That is, every time I start up the computer I have to log...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Poor behavior after hardware security updates

    This is a non-issue since I found the button for illumination. It would be nice to know why it is on by default now, but since I can easily turn it off I'll close this thread.
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Poor behavior after hardware security updates

    Thanks for the link, @mook765!

    The keyboard illumination is also puzzling.
  5. [SOLVED] Poor behavior after hardware security updates

    This morning Ubuntu showed me a pop-up window that stated a security update was available for my hardware. At least that's my recollection of what it said. I installed the updates and now the...

    Thanks for your time.



    I think I will just start with an Ubuntu LAN server and see if that gets me all the functionality I want (except for web-page hosting).

    [SOLVED] Re: Web Server, Learning to Walk (or Crawl?)

    Thanks a lot for the information! It seems to me that I have nowhere near the time required for proficiency in setting up and maintaining a Linux server. (My plan is to just use FreeNAS instead.)

  10. [SOLVED] Re: Slow WiFi with Broadcom 14e4:4315 (rev 01) in 14.04

    Are you instructing me to set the router to only use Channel 11 (this is, I think, the only thing I can find about channels on the router settings page) or are you saying I need to get my computer on...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Slow WiFi with Broadcom 14e4:4315 (rev 01) in 14.04

    I can get to the router settings but don't know how to change frequencies or even see a list of frequencies. It seems like I'll need to be on WiFi to perform this step. Is that correct?

    Thanks, Hadaka. Here is the script's output.

  16. [SOLVED] Re: Compiz effects gone with 14.04 --- Gnome Fallback ... Negative, Window Switcher

    That did it. Thank you both very much. I knew I was butchering the terms --- the Alt+Tab functionality is Application Switcher or Static Application Switcher, one. And grahammechanical thanks for...
  17. [SOLVED] Compiz effects gone with 14.04 --- Gnome Fallback ... Negative, Window Switcher

    I like the classic Gnome interface better than Unity, but what I like most of all is my Compiz effects that I was using in 12.04. The ones I most cherished were Negative and Grid. It seems that...

  19. [SOLVED] Re: Installing rpm messed up system --- could not determine package or source name

  21. [SOLVED] Re: Installing rpm messed up system --- could not determine package or source name

    On this task I used rpm, dpkg, yum, and alien. Can you tell me how to undo all that mess? Brief comments on how to install Crypt::Tea_JS would be nice, too.

    Re: Local network discovery disabled

    I don't understand the "or" in that response.

    For the hosts file, you're saying I could just add the (static) IP addresses of the NAS and the printer and things could then work?
