  1. Where to set XDG_DATA_DIRS c.s. early enough

    Hi,

    Where are the XDG env. variables set on [K]Ubuntu 14.04? I have been rolling my own Project Neon5 replacement, installing Qt 5.6 and KF5 into a separate prefix (/opt/local). I've been using a...
  2. Re: dual boot: Win10 after Ubuntu (and getting back into my pc-bsd partition)

    That's a bit TMI ...

    I don't particularly mind putting the machine back in UEFI mode in order to install and/or boot MS Windows, esp. if that allows to keep Grub and the "Windows bootloader"...
  3. dual boot: Win10 after Ubuntu (and getting back into my pc-bsd partition)

    Hi,

    I found an old thread outlining how to do a clean Win7 install alongside existing Linux installation(s). Basically, make sure the target partition is already in NTFS, and that you're in...
  4. [kubuntu] ETA on lts-xenial packages of XOrg and Mesa for 14.04?

    Hi,

    The question is in the title: is there any ETA on (or hope for) backports of XOrg and Mesa from 16.04 to 14.04, so that this LTS version gets better support for the latest hardware? What's the...

    Re: 14.04 LTS on a Celeron N3150

    It's slowly getting to a point where most of the features from KDE4 I've been missing are back in, but it still evolves way too quickly to my taste. There's a reason I use LTS releases: I value...

    Re: 14.04 LTS on a Celeron N3150

    Oh, I'm not saying it is. And I'd be happy is Ubuntu or someone provided lts-xenial XOrg and Mesa packages, provided those are indeed newer than the lts-wily versions.

    Anyway, it's not really an...

    Re: 14.04 LTS on a Celeron N3150

    This is not the same 14.04 as the one shipped originally. It uses a backported XOrg and Mesa from "Wily", and a very recent kernel. It works fine on even more recent hardware.

    Re: 14.04 LTS on a Celeron N3150

    I need to do some more testing, but it seems I got a lemon. The system went to sleep when I was occupied elsewhere, and now it appears to get stuck somewhere in the POST, before the screen even...

    14.04 LTS on a Celeron N3150

    Hi,

    I want to stick to my KDE4 desktop a while longer, and 14.04 while I'm at it, but also just got a new "netbook" built around an Intel Celeron N3150 (not even a Broadcom WiFi chipset, yay! :))....
  10. [kubuntu] Broadcom/Wifi connection drops - power-saving mode in Linux 4?

    Hi,

    Edit: seems I'm not the only one with this kind of issue:

    I'm running KUbuntu 14.04 LTS, up-to-date but since quite a while I use a home-built 3.14 kernel (3.14.59 with ConKolivas patches)....
  11. Re: booting a UEFI PC off an external/cloned *Trusty/14.04* install for a BIOS-based

    Wow, lots of links and info - I'll process all that in due time (for some silly reason I don't have access to this, my wife's, laptop when she's home ;)).
    Good suggestion to create a new thread, too.
  12. Re: booting a UEFI PC off an external/cloned *Trusty/14.04* install for a BIOS-based

    Curious I never saw an alert for that latest reply.

    Either way, the trigger was pulled on a bigger beast. Still an HP, a Pavillon W10 17" with a 6th gen i3 @2.3Ghz, 6Gb of RAM, and an AMD R7 GPU...

    Ah, of course, there's the GPT issue too. As far as that's concerned, any GPT-partitioned drives I have have been set up such that the BIOS PCs of the house can boot Linux off them. IIUC that means...
  16. booting a UEFI PC off an external/cloned *Trusty/14.04* install for a BIOS-based PC

    Hi,

    My wife's venerable HP G62 laptop just died (no more display, not even over the VGA port) at the worst possible time, so we're looking at replacing it ASAP. One potential candidate is the ASUS...

    Re: Is KDE5 on 14.04 out yet?

    I'm a bit late to the discussion, but I regret the decision to drop the Neon5 project that allowed installing KF5 in its own subtree. I don't think it would have been an inhumane effort to keep the...
  18. [kubuntu] Re: 3.14 and 3.15 kernels - why were they skipped?

    Hmmm, that still doesn't explain why 3.14 and 3.15 were skipped for 14.04, but anyway. What I mostly wanted to know if it was because of known issues...
  19. [kubuntu] Re: 3.14 and 3.15 kernels - why were they skipped?

    Because ntfs-3g is a userland driver. UFSD is a professional product, has better support for the NTFS feature set from what I understand, and as I said, it offers near-native speed (= RW speeds...
  20. [kubuntu] 3.14 and 3.15 kernels - why were they skipped?

    Hi,

    I'm running KUbuntu 14.04LTS, and use Paragon Software's UFSD driver for read/write access to NTFS volumes at (near) native speed.
    That works wonderfully well, but they support only up to the...

    Yeah, I have been thinking about that too, but that would mean the battery starts charging as soon as the system gets suspended. And gets enough juice to support a long enough playback duration after...

    laptop forced suspend

    Hello,

    I'm maintaining Kubuntu 14.04LTS on my gf's HP G62 laptop, an older model with an AMD P320 CPU and RV710 GPU. Before moving to Kubuntu I used the proprietary fglx driver with that GPU, and...
  24. [kubuntu] Re: HDMI audio out from an AMD Radeon RV710 under 14.04

    Well, enabling audio and connecting HDMI makes the system unstable and prone to freezes which can only be resolved with a power-cycle :(
    It may have to do with the fact that I use Paragon's ufsd...
