    Thumbs down Re: Known Intrepid Ibex bugs and workarounds

    Sorry if it's restricted to share links, but I've found an interesting article here with solutions. Hope it helps people with NVidia cards. Frodon, you may copypaste it and delete my post if you want.

    Re: Known Intrepid Ibex bugs and workarounds

    As long as there's no associated launchpad entry to track the bugs it can't be added to first post, some of these issues can be due to tweaked configs and some may have been fixed already too.

    Re: Known Intrepid Ibex bugs and workarounds

    I had problems with no login sounds with upgraded intrepid amd64. I found a bug report at: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ra/+bug/273507


    Bug #273507: No sound effects play when "play sound effects when buttons are clicked" is enabled

    The workaround is to install latest libcanberra 0.10.

    "Check this page: "https://launchpad.net/~gkulyk/+archive" with the latest libcanberra 0.10 (the one used in intrepid is the outdated 0.6).
    Include the line: "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gkulyk/ubuntu intrepid main" in synaptic and reload.
    Immediately the new 0.10 will show up as an upgrade, marked all upgrades, and reboot!"

    The workaround fixed the problem.

    Re: Known Intrepid Ibex bugs and workarounds

    Bug: Bluetooth mouse won't work after a restart/standby etc.

    Workaround: In Bluetooth manager change visibility setting away from 'Always visible' and then back to 'Always visible', mouse should be automatically detected again.

    Alternatively, delete mouse pairing from the bluetooth manager and reacquire.

    Re: Known Intrepid Ibex bugs and workarounds

    Shutdown hangs at the ALSA modules:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...light=shutdown

    Basically you have to shut down networking before the ALSA stuff is shut down. "Workaround" originally from:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/274995

    open terminal

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/init.d/alsa-utils
    scroll down to where you see stop

    insert this line at the top (right after the stop) :
    Code:
    ifconfig eth0 down
    or if you use wireless/both at times, insert this instead/in addition:
    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 down

    Re: Known Intrepid Ibex bugs and workarounds

    CD/DVD drive closes immediately after ejecting.

    Official bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ev/+bug/283316.

    Workaround: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ev/+bug/283316.

    (Note that the workaround discussed in the bug is now available through intrepid-proposed. In order to get the update [the package affected is udev, the new version being 124-9], I had to temporarily change from the German mirror to the US repos.)

    Re: Known Intrepid Ibex bugs and workarounds

    Bug: After upgrading from Hardy, clicking on folders in the "Places" menu opens up the wrong application (for example, VLC, Totem, Rhythmbox, etc. instead of Nautilus).

    Launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...us/+bug/260492.

    Workaround: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...us/+bug/260492.

    (Basically, the solution is simply to right click on a folder in nautilus > open with app > file manager. Afterwards, "places" folders should open normally again.)
