The problem I previously had is HERE

I believe the new problem is related as I now no longer have VLC installed and when I tried to install it through Muon Package Manager, I get this;

The "vlc" package could not be marked for installation or upgrade:

Depends: vlc ,but is not installable
Depends: vlc ,but is not installable
Recommends: vlc ,but is not installable
Recommends: vlc ,but is not installable

Yes, the warnings appear twice for some reason.

General Help & Advice / Strange problem with DE's
« on: January 10, 2017, 04:15:59 am »
This is such a weird problem, I don't even know how to ask to fix it.

I have a monitor connected via VGA and a flatscreen TV connected via HDMI
The DE's are NOT mirrored and the primary DE's the monitor.

what is happening sometimes is both DE's completely change appearance, i.e. I have numerous widgets on both DE's and when the strange 'thing' happens, all the widgets on both DE's vanish and also what is happening is, on one set of DE's I have System Monitor and Firefox, along with a few other programs running.

When this 'glitch' happens, I get the title of System Monitor changed to System Monitor <2> and Firefox has also changed, I have tabbed browsing appear, not the user add-on version but the one updated by Firefox. In the DE's with the widgets on screen, theres nothing in the tabbed browsing menu, but the alternate one has all my saved sites in tabbed browsing.

The 'glitch' can happen at any time when I am opening a program or changing desktop resolution, it most recently happened when I opened okular by selecting the PDF in Dolphin. I tried closing and re-opening okular to see if it changed back but nothing happened, I also tried getting the 'other' DE's back by changing screen resolution but still nothing.

Where are these 'other' DE's coming from ?

General Help & Advice / [SOLVED] 2 Updates which will not update
« on: November 28, 2016, 12:57:43 am »
I have 2 updates which I can't get to update. I am using Muon Update Manager (MUM) & Muon Package Manager (MPM).
The 2 updates are mencoder & mplayer.
Is there any way I can find out if anything is stopping them from being updated, I know packages can be held but I don't know how to check or unhold them. In MPM, it list them as upgradeable but I'm unable to upgrade them.

How can I check if there's anything else wrong which is preventing me from upgrading them?

General Help & Advice / Problem With MP3 But LAME Is Installed
« on: September 02, 2016, 12:41:42 pm »
I have installed Audio Format Converter 'Sound Converter' through Muon Package Manager and in the Preferences window, I get the warning at the bottom that MP3 Encoder is not present.
I've checked in Muon Package Manager and found libsnmp30, libmp3lame0, libtwolame0 installed using mp3 and lame as search keywords. Are there any other lib's required for install to enable Sound Converter to work properly.

I've tested to see if an MP3 file works in another program and VLC plays MP3 files fine, so could it be Sound Converter which has a problem.

General Help & Advice / [SOLVED] Strange Request For New Keyring Password
« on: September 02, 2016, 01:08:53 am »
I needed to convert an audio file from 'AMR' to 'MP3' and installed 'Sound Converter' through 'Muon Package Manager' and performed a re-boot. I also installed 'kubuntu-restricted-extras'

I then had a request pop up. The request was for a 'Keyring Password' for 'Default Keyring'. I have not entered anything as I was unsure why this happened, I have never been asked to enter a keyring password before.
Thinking this was because I installed 'kubuntu-restricted-extras', I uninstalled it, then rebooted, but the keyring password request was still there.

General Help & Advice / [SOLVED] Problem reading CD/DVD's
« on: August 02, 2016, 07:15:54 pm »
I inserted a CD and copied the files from it to one of my HD's and then removed the CD, then inserted another CD.
I let it be read then clicked on the name of the CD on the left of Dolphin but nothing came up and I know there are filed on the CD.
How do I make it read it properly. I had this sort of problem before but can't remember how I fixed it, is it something to do with the drive cache or something?

General Help & Advice / [ABANDONED] Lost internet since updating
« on: June 24, 2016, 10:42:35 pm »
I recently ran Muon Updater (on my lappy - also running Kubuntu 14.04) and since then, I have had no internet, F12 turns wireless on/off, which I have tried - But nothing happened!

I know I will have to use a Live CD/USB but I have no idea where to start with the recovery.

10
For some strange reason I am losing internet connection.
It happened a few weeks ago and was only resolved after a reinstall of the OS. I contacted SKY over the issue and they could not find ANY fault whatsoever, I even had BT out to check the line a couple of times and they too could not find anything wrong.
I did a quick search to see if anyone else had a similar problem and discovered it's something to do with daemon.
It started just after I installed Dropbox. I got a message that daemon needs installing, so, that's what I did and tha'ts when the problem started and I don't know how to fix it.

11
I have done a fresh install of Kubuntu 14.04 and installed the Kubuntu restricted extras package.
I want to back up my DVD collection and have installed Brassero/K3b/Handbrake but I'm unable to copy any DVD.
When I use K3b, I get 'Unable to read Video DVD contents: Found encrypted Video DVD.
Install libdvdcss to get Video DVD decryption support.
'

I have checked that it is installed, in Muon Package Manager, I searched for 'libdvdscc' and it comes up with 'libdvdread4' installed but no sign of 'libdvdscc'. Is that the same thing?

How do I check that I have whatever is needed to copy the DVD's installed?

General Help & Advice / [SOLVED] Unable to print
« on: April 28, 2016, 09:42:24 pm »
I have been having problems printing, my printer only prints half a page (top half) and then... nothing.
I am using an HP OfficeJetPro 6830.

I have uninstalled ALL printers (including FAX) via CUPS and then tried to reinstall them, printer and FAX, via CUPS but that does not solve the problem. I am also not able to complete the printer install using HPLIP 3.16.3 as I get a message telling me that I have not got libtools installed, yet, I HAVE.
I have HPLIP 3.15.9 installed.
