    Re: 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) Known bugs and work-a-rounds

    I find this annoying with suspend. On my HP Pavilion g7 suspend will work if I select it from the main menu. I've also noted that suspend will work from the time out period I've selected in my case 10 minutes. Suspend does not work from close the lid until the 10 minutes has passed from the time I've close the lid which cause extreme heat to my laptop. A work around is to suspend from the main menu before closing the lid.

    Nothing from what I've noticed.

    apt full-upgrade is the same as
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    Good question. I've seen the former used with apt and the latter used with apt-get. But there's also sudo apt dist-upgrade which we talked about here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...5#post13466525. Note that the man apt page makes no reference to apt dist-upgrade!

    From man apt:
    Code:
           full-upgrade (apt-get(8))
               full-upgrade performs the function of upgrade but will remove
               currently installed packages if this is needed to upgrade the system
               as a whole.
    From man apt-get:
    Code:
           dist-upgrade
               dist-upgrade in addition to performing the function of upgrade, also
               intelligently handles changing dependencies with new versions of
               packages; apt-get has a "smart" conflict resolution system, and it
               will attempt to upgrade the most important packages at the expense of
               less important ones if necessary. The dist-upgrade command may
               therefore remove some packages. The /etc/apt/sources.list file
               contains a list of locations from which to retrieve desired package
               files. See also apt_preferences(5) for a mechanism for overriding the
               general settings for individual packages.

    Actually, if I understand correctly, this thread is not for seeking support of any kind.

    It's meant to have posts in which the poster finds a solution to some aspect of 16.04 and posts both the problem and its solution.

    Re: 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) Known bugs and work-a-rounds

    Hello

    Yesterday first installed Kubuntu 16.04 with a bootable USB image. But i got problems Plasma 5 error (all shell packages missing)

    look it on google (might a bug problem or a wrong program to make a bootable USB image.

    A solution is simpel (You can boot from USB live session 16.04) and have installed from the software center
    The Daily build release. That solved my problems.

    Seems i'm not the only one.

    Sorry for my English writing.

    Greetings

    Adding HandleLidSwitchDocked=suspend

    to /etc/systemd/logind.conf seems to have fixed the problem on my HP or at lease removing #.

    Have they set time frame for this specific error?

    ONly updated an hour ago and already found two issues!

    1) Very serious! Using any nVidia drivers results in a black screen. Solution that worked for me:

    *) In the grub menu select the partition you want to boot and the press "e" and then replace
    Code:
    ....ro    quiet splash .....
    with
    Code:
    ....ro    nomodeset quiet splash .....
    *) If that boots to the login screen, but keeps returning to the login screen press Crtl + Alt + F2, login, and then run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge nvidia.* bumblebee
    *) Reboot.

    2) Not so serious, but surely embarrassing for a LTS. Cannot install third party apps such as Google Chrome. Double-clicking on a .deb installer opens the Software app as expected, but clicking the ‘install’ button does nothing. A bug report has been lodged for the issue and explains that the issue: “…only seems to happen with third-party packages; installing a random deb from packages.ubuntu.com/xenial worked.”.

    Instead of using the Software Centre to install downloaded debs, use gdebi instead, it's in the repositories.
