I'll start by warning you that I am brand new to Ubuntu and
Linux. I have looked at several potential solutions so far, but none
have been successful so far. I have managed to get both network
interfaces "up" such that


lshw -C network

no longer says disabled next to each interface heading. That's
all I've been able to do so far. My network is secured with WPA2, but
even the wired connection is not working.
Hi and merry christmas to everyone! Try to listen my music: Angel
we have heard on hight - piano version by TBKPianist

I'm trying to install Google Earth (32-bit) in Lubuntu 16.04 but
Synaptic Package Manager requires lsb-core to be installed. When I
try to install that, this is what I get:

$ sudo apt-get install lsb-core

Reading package lists... Done

Building dependency tree

Reading state information... Done

Package lsb-core is not available, but is referred to by another

This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or />
is only available from another source

E: Package 'lsb-core' has no installation candidate

I found a file 'lsb-core_3.2-14ubuntu2_i386.deb' but that requires
other dependencies and will not install.

lsb-base is installed.

Any suggestions beside using Lubuntu 15.10?

I want to feel secure with my new Ubuntu computer, but i don't
want to be paranoid.

I reckon, Router, UFW, VPN and Logwatch should give me a secure
desktop - same as windows 10 with F-Secure firewall - any opinions? />
I like logwatch as i use online email software, so if there is a
change in system i get email alert in real time from Logwatch.

Any opinios?

I can install and configure Tripwrie, but it need alot of Daily work
checking reports and update after every change you make on computer,
is not practical and that is why i prefer logwatch.

Evening all...

I have a .xspf playlist containing hundreds of songs scattered over
various drives and directories. Is there any kind of Linux software
that can copy all of these files onto a mounted memory stick? The
reason I can't just cp the files is, as I say, they're flipping
everywhere (not my fault! Blame Dad... :-") and it'll take me

I've tried VLC, Amarok, Audacious... etc. and none of them seem to
have the simple feature of "sync playlist to device" that
Windows Media Player had.

Perhaps I'm just being stupid, but I've tried many combinations of
search terms on Google and nothing's come up. Thanks for your help
guys! :)
Hello everyone! First of all merry christmas to all of you, I
hope you're going to spend some good times during these holidays! />
I have ubuntu 14.04 on an hp stream 13 (not the touchscreen version).
Just to be clear href="http://www.laptopmag.com/reviews/laptops/hp-stream-13"
target="_blank">this is the computer I'm talking about

Now on windows 10 I fell in love with the multitouch gestures for the
touchpad and I saw that I can do the same on linux distros with
touchegg. So I compiled it from sources (1.1.1 if I don't go wrong)
and I've also compiled touchegg-gce (nothing else than a graphical
editor for its configuration file).

It works smoothly only disabling on startup synclients like this: />


synclient TapButton2=0

synclient TapButton3=0

synclient ClickFinger2=0

synclient ClickFinger3=0

synclient HorizTwoFingerScroll=0

synclient VertTwoFingerScroll=0

The very big problem is that 3 and 4 fingers gestures doesn't
work and the two fingers scrolling doesn't work as good as the
synaptic driver, so I questioned the capability of my touchpad to
support 3 and 4 fingers, but asking to xorg through terminal it says
that the touchpad is capable of 3 fingers gestures. This is the
command I used to check that:


xinput list-props 11 | grep

and this is the result


Synaptics Capabilities (296): 
  1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1

to understand this result we can take a look at the
documentation: href="https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics#Using_xinput_to_determine_touchpad_capabilities"
target="_blank">https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...d_capabilities />

What I want to accomplish is to use touchegg only for three fingers
gestures (I need actually only one gesture) and use synaptic for
everything else.

If it won't be possible (no matters what we try) at least I'd like to
use synaptic for all the two fingers gestures and touchegg just for
one two fingers gesture. I don't think this is possible but I ask it
anyway :D I just need a swipe left/swipe right or everything else that
is not occupied by default. I'm a developer, if the sources of the
synaptic driver are released (and if the portion of the code that
implements gestures is not written in a too much complicated way (a
bit unlikely) we could do something together!)

So I'll wait for your ideas!! Thank you very much.

I'm a completly new user of ubuntu. I never worked with it before, but
I wanted to try it and so i decided to install it on my ASUS T200S.
The installation went smoothly, but now my wireless module does not
seem to work. Because I don't have any ethernet port, I have to
install everything manually. So I found this thread :

target="_blank">http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...300861&page=11 />

downloaded the QCA9337 lib from the link, copied it to the ath10k
folder, loaded the linux-headers-generic and these backports:

target="_blank">https://www.dropbox.com/s/6hl52r0krq...150903b.tar.gz />

Then I manually did this :

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) git />
echo "options ath10k_core skip_otp=y" | sudo tee

wget href="https://www.dropbox.com/s/6hl52r0krq3wpxf/backports-20150903b.tar.gz"
target="_blank">https://www.dropbox.com/s/6hl52r0krq...150903b.tar.gz />
tar -zxvf backports-20150903b.tar.gz

cd backports-20150903

make defconfig-ath10k


sudo make install

git clone target="_blank">https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware.git

sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/ath10k/ /lib/firmware/

sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/QCA9377 /lib/firmware/ath10k/

and renamed the firmware file to firmware-5.bin.

lshw -C network Now gives the correct information, where before it
would say UNCLAIMED.


dmesg | grep ath10k says :

device 0042 with chip_id 003820ff isn't supported.

Can I do something? Or is this chip just not supported yet and i have
to wait?

Thanks in advance


edit : just found href="http://askubuntu.com/questions/701350/qualcomm-atheros-qca9377-wireless-not-working-on-lenovo-with-14-04-3"
gonna try it real quick

edit2: alright nevermind, the last link did the trick. Im sorry to
have bothered you
I'm running Ubuntu 14.04LTS with kernel 3.13.0-74 and hard drive
encryption and the OS is now failing to load after entering my
encryption password after GRUB. Normally I would get the message
"something something crypt set up successfully" and now I'm
just getting the Ubuntu logo with the five dots underneath it. This
just started out of the blue this morning, what a wonderful Christmas
present. Tried restarting and booting into an earlier kernel and had
the same problem. Any advice on what might be the problem and how to
go about fixing it?
I bought what is apparently a Huawei E303 with the brand of a
local mobile company, and am trying to connect to the network through
it in Ubuntu. It was recognised as a 12d1:15d4 instead of a modem, and
so I found I had to use usb_modeswitch.

Switching modes was painful without an internet connection to find the
exact string, but I finally managed to do it succesfully and now I've
created the file /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/12d1:15d4 with the following


TargetVendor=  0x12d1

TargetProduct= 0x15d5

InquireDevice= 0

Even though the modem is now properly recognised and I've
created an appropriate connection (for my operator) in plasma-nm, I
still can't connect to he net. First I'm prompted by KDE for a
password, and none of my account password, “movistar” (the default
for that connection) or the SIM PIN seem to work. Then I get one
notification stating that “IP configuration was unavailable” and
many more with “Connection 'Movistar' deactivated.” Of course I
never manage to actually get an internet connection.

The same modem is working fine under Windows, and in fact, I'm using
it to post this.

What am I doing wrong?
My Kernel Module was able to build properly with my old

In a way to debug the module I included few flags into the Makefile
and now I'm getting this error.

./scripts/Makefile.build:49: *** CFLAGS was changed in
