    14.04 (Trusty Tahr) known bugs and work arounds

    During the development cycle, Trusty was pretty reliable, I only needed to do a fresh install once in the 6 months.

    There were a few problems with permissions during the test cycle, but those were fixing during updates

    Please post how you worked around any bugs that you run into.

    Re: 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) known bugs and work arounds

    I started late in the beta cycle. I performed fresh install in both cases
    1) I found that application windows such as maximized Thunderbird did not display completely - by that I mean the min-max-close controls were not always visible. Since I really didn't like Unity anyway I choose to install Gnome-flashback which provided the correct display of the controls. Also it was an easy fix to move the controls to the upper right.
    2) I tried to make the top panel transparent on my Dell laptop which caused 'Indicator Applet Complete' to fail upon boot. I attributed this to a relatively slow cpu / hard disk; the remedy was reverting to 'use system theme'
    Overall I give 14.04 an A minus since #1 doesn't matter to me and #2 didn't affect my desktop HP

    Pithos 0.3.18 does not display icon in indicator panel anymore (at least on my system), had to disable "show notification area icon" option and just minimize Pithos to launcher, otherwise it cannot be turned off easily.

    Pithos also disables all sound control through the sound indicator menu, volume must be adjusted through "sound properties" in settings or using sound control buttons on keyboard until system is rebooted.

    Suspend / Resume: If using NVIDIA card, the Noveau driver did not resume from suspend. Changed to Proprietary NVIDIA driver and everything works great.

    All, I really thought this thread should contain posts of PROBLEM + SOLUTION/WORK AROUND

    Recommend that this thread limits to that type of post... otherwise, post a issue without solution in an different thread or new thread.

    Re: 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) known bugs and work arounds

    The problem is Ubuntu 14.04 has disabled Workspace switcher by default. Its hard to find on which monitor Window appeared on first time if other monitor is off. Its better to turn on enable workspaces in settings to avoid confusion.

    Re: 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) known bugs and work arounds

    multiple people (including myself) appear to encounter serious issues when choosing to encrypt their home folder during installation of ubuntu 14.04 (and its flavors). it seems that during an install where this option is chosen, ubquity attempts to create a valid encrypted swap partition, but always ends up failing. so the user comes out on the other end with no functional swap space at all.

    see the following for more details:
    - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2217889
    - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2218354
    - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...y/+bug/1303002

    edit: temporary workarounds posted in the first thread i linked to above, but they're quite literally workarounds, in that they do not remedy the issue of ubuntu being unable to recognize and utilize encrypted swap partitions in the new LTS.

    After upgrading from 13.10 to 14.04, I had no sound. No devices were present in the sound settings panel. After some searching, I added my userid to group audio:

    sudo usermod -a -G audio <myuserid>
    then rebooted.
