  • Issue#14047: Linux - Remove network drive entry from GTK-based file manager

    Hi all, about a year ago I added a network drive (via webdav / davfs) to my desktop Linux. As far as I can remember, I added the necessary line in /etc/fstab und created a secrets file in my HOME-directory under .davfs with the login credentials. The server has changed and I realized that I don't really need the network drive mapped to my desktop computer anymore, so I wanted to remove it. I deleted the corresponding line in /etc/fstab, renamed the secrets file to secrets-OLD and checked whether there was any reference to the network drive in the webdav configuration file .davfs.conf (There was none). For some reason in the GTK-based graphical file managers NAUTILUS (it's called FILES for some reason at least in the German version) and NEMO, but not QT-based DOLPHIN the network drive is still shown in the side pane. I couldn't find a way to remove it from the list. I guess that in some GNOME configuration file there is still a reference to it. I looked through the settings in the dc

  • Issue#54933: Linux - Issue with different version of a library (libX11)

    I have a Debian-derived Linux distro with "libX11-6" installed. Every time I try to configure ROOT (a package), then I get the error: "libX11 MUST be installed". I saw the configuration file log and I found this: " [...] libraries to check for: libX11.tbd [...]" It tries to find these libraries in some dir, without luck. If I try to install "libX11-dev", it answers with "libX11-dev is already the newest version". The version is the same of libX11-6... I think this problem is due to different filesname of different version of the same library. How can I solve this problem? I am a newbie in linux

  • Issue#62983: Linux - Ubuntu 15.10 won't boot if a remove unused discs

    I have an Ubuntu 15.10 running on a MSI B75MA-P45 motherboard with a number of connected SATA discs. (plus one external USB-disc) I have a small 200 GB as boot disc, one 250 GB which I have emptied and two 3TB discs for media. (plus one small 80 GB disc that doesn't even show up on my system). Anyway, the two 80GB and 250 GB are not used so I want to remove them to reduce the heat in the box. My problem is that when I remove them, my systems fails to boot and I get stuck in a boot menu with several options of older kernels to boot with, none of will boot though. The only way I can boot my system is to reconnect the two drives again This starts to drive me nuts! Does anyone heard of this before and can point me in a direction for a solution? // T

  • Issue#65266: Lenovo - External Display issue with P50 on Linux

    Hello! I have a P50 (TopSeller 20EN0013US) and dual boot Windows 10 Pro and UbuntuGnome 15.10 with it. I have been having an issue connecting external displays via the laptop's mini-DisplayPort connector. When I plug in an external display while the machine is running, the internal display will begin turning on and off every second, until the external display is disconnected. The external display never turns on. I have the bios set to use dedicated graphics only. I am using the binary Nvidia driver, version 352.63, and have also tried the 352.79, 358.xx, and 361.xx (from the nvidia-drivers ppa) which all have the same issue. I am using the kernel version, which is the stock 15.10 ubuntu kernel. The issue does not occur under Windows 10 Pro. I have been able to work around the issue by setting the mini-Displayport to the primary display device (so it is visible at boot, and ends up being used for the console framebuffer), which then allows me to switch to the console

  • Issue#118499: Linux - systemctl suspend - USB sleep / wake issue

    When I use systemctl suspend one of 3 things happens: 1. Everything suspends fine, and I can wake up my computer by just tapping on the keyboard. 2. The system suspends, but it looks like my keyboard / mouse are still powered on (they remain lit-up). When I go to wake the machine up by tapping on the keyboard nothing happens. I can wake the machine by pressing on the power button, though, and then everything is working fine. 3. Like 2, the system suspends but the keyboard / mouse remain on (or so it looks). I again can't resume with the keyboard. When resuming by pushing the power button the system wakes up, but the keyboard / mouse are unresponsive. Sometimes if I switch the USB port the keyboard / mouse are using they will become active again, while other times I have to restart the machine with the restart button because I can't get the keyboard or mouse to respond. There is no set of conditions that I have identified that leads to 1 vs 2 vs 3. It seems that 2 is the most fr

  • Issue#120741: Linux - Routing Issue - I think

    I'm having a bit of an issue with a dual network setup in on a VM guest in Proxmox. I'm pretty sure this is not directly Proxmox related. Here is the situation. I have to VM guests, first a pFsense host and second a linux Ubuntu host. The linux Ubuntu host has two network interface cards setup. one with a public IP which currently has all ports blocked with IP tables except port 22 for ssh. The second network interface has a local IP 192.x.x.x The pFsense guest has two network interfaces. The first interface is the WAN interface with a public IP and the second network interface is on the LAN with a local IP of 192.x.x.x Same subnet as the second interface of the Ubuntu guest. I can ping back and forth between the two local IPs of both VMs. I can ssh back and forth between both local interfaces. So all is good there. Both VM guests can also access the internet just fine out of their WAN interfaces. Here is the issue. I would like to port forward say port 2222 from the pFesnse guest

  • Issue#122040: Linux - How to remove the last dissidents of Unity?

    A short story: The governance under my dictatorship in the kingdom of Laptop was easy at the beginning. I hired a prime minister called Ubuntu who did the job well, but as trade started to develop with foreign lands and we had to establish new businesses like Eclipse, Android sdk, Firefox, php and a few others, our treasury-minister, Mr. Unity started to show the signs of a retard. The bloke started having some "memory problems". He was an eccentric chap to begin with, liked to spend a lot of his mental energy on stuff like fancy clothes, hair style, skin ointments, etc. and just couldn't seem to take some time off for my businesses. As a result, I just fired Unity and hired a new guy called GNOME in his place. GNOME seemed to do the job well at the beginning. Good thing was that he was not as eccentric as Unity and seemed to spare a lot of time and energy for looking after my trades. However, this didn't last long as my business started expanding even more. I started rec
