Hi all

Hoping someone can help, I have a system running mythbuntu 14.04 and
the control center seems to be broken. I'm wanting to add a front end
to the system so I need to enable master backend role. But when i try,
I'm able to change it to enabled then I hit apply and it asks for my
password, I give it but then I get an error message "Exception in
applystate of GUI of plagin plagins"



so what I need is a way to fix the control center or if not can some
tell me how to make the changes I need using terminal



THANK
Hello. New installation of Gnomebuntu 15.10 with updates carried
out. Broadcom wireless does not work although the laptop recognizes
when I toggle the hardware switch, an air plane icon pops up in the
tray. Been through the forums for a couple of days now trying to fix
it. Time to ask for help. Find below, the output of your script for
network related information. Thank you for your work.

I decided to update to 15.10 from 14.04 thinking that an
absolutely essential piece of software that I use, would be
compatible, but it turns out the last release it supports is 14.10.
I've had a go at installing the deb, but to no avail as the
dependancies it needs are older than the ones installed. Is there some
way to sandbox the an environment where this might work?
Hello. This has been going on for some time now and I can't
figure out why I keep getting logged out everytime I try to use the
add attachments popup to upload and insert images into posts. Quick
reply works alright providing I don't click it more than once, but
when I switch to advanced reply to add an image to the post when I
click the upload button for the images the forum logs me out of my
account and it won't let me upload and insert images to existing
posts. This is happening 100% of the time now when I try to upload and
insert images inline using the add attachment popup after clicking
Advanced Reply to an existing post. When I first started using the
forums I didn't have this problem, it has just started doing this in
the last 2 or 3 months.



It seems to have worked fine when I just added the screenshot below
but this is the newthread page not advanced reply to an existing
thread page. Before anyone asks I have disabled adblocker and ghostery
on Ubuntu forums but this had no effect. Any help would be appreciated
as I like to use images in posts sometimes because pictures can say a
thousand words.

This has been an ongoing frustrating problem since 15.04.
Synaptic's quick filter takes forever to rebuild search index and once
"rebuilt", search for a package I know is in the repo (say
vlc) may still return nothing. Sometimes may have to restart synaptic
and reload again to search for the searched package to show up.
Changing server has no effect.



I have started two threads on this before

target="_blank">http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2277471 />
target="_blank">http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2282256 />


Nothing came of it but over time the problem kind of goes away on its
own for 15.04 (or at least happens so infrequently that I can live
with it) But it is coming back again in 15.10. It just took me 10
minutes to restart synaptic and "reload" many times just to
find xournal.



I have started a bug report but no one else seem to be affected. href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt-xapian-index/+bug/1464809"
target="_blank">https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1464809 />


I know a lot of people are using synaptic out there. If this affects
you please go to second the bug and post a comment here to confirm it,
just so that I can be sure I am not the only one having this problem
(on several machines so have nothing to do with hardware)



Thanks.
My wife views Facebook with Firefox on an Ubuntu 12.04 system.
Recently, the audio of embedded videos started coming out as static.
This doesn't happen on a 14.04 system that I have. I used strace on
the firefox process and found that it attempted to load in order
libavcodec56, libavcodec55, libavcodec54, libavcodec53 to process the
video. Ubuntu 14.04 has libavcodec54 but 12.04 only has libavcodec53
and libavcodec52. Unfortunately, there is no backport of libavcodec54
for 12.04 so I downloaded the 14.04 source package and built it on the
12.04 system. When I installed it, the audio of the Facebook videos
came out normally. It would be nice if there were an official
backport for this package.
Hi, I am new to Ubuntu (and Linux pretty much) I bought a Lenovo
Yoga 900 for a new laptop, but when I saw how ugly everything looked
on Windows 10, I decided I should just move to Ubuntu. Right now, I am
using Ubuntu Gnome 15.10. What is working is the Wireless
Connectivity, Webcam, Keyboard, USB Ports, though the only things that
are not working is the touchscreen and touchpad! I looked at some
forums, but they were to complicated to understand. If anyone can find
an answer, please try to be as simple as possible. Thanks.
With Nautilus, for many folders I can't create folders inside and
I can paste files inside, but using terminal (no sudo or gksudo or su
to root -- just as myself) it works OK. I am trying to move all
folders and files out of one folder and into a different one. The
"cut" is available. But in my destination folder I can't
create new folders and "paste is not available. I can get it all
done in terminal. But I'm setting this up for someone else and that
person will not want to use terminal to do such routine things as
create folders and cut/paste files. Sorry if this has been covered
before, but I couldn't find the same scenario covered before. Any
help out there? Thanks.
I used to be able to change the appearance of everything from
highlighting to how transparent my terminal was. Now there's just
theme and icon size. Ubuntu tweak doesn't do either of those.
Recently had a drive crash in my MythTV server - been running
mythbuntu 14.04 for some time. So I got a new drive and did a clean
install (frontend and backend on the same machine), and now
mythbackend is constantly crashing. It will crash whenever I try to
schedule a recording via mythweb, and nothing will record. If I try to
schedule recordings it appears to simply ignore the request (nothing
is recorded), but doesn't crash immediately. It will also crash at
times for no apparant reason.



I grabbed the mythTV Backend log and it's here: href="http://pastebin.com/ChEJfUnE"

Any help is greatly appreciated - this has worked for years on this
hardware/network setup and I'm not sure why it has suddenly
stopped...
