General Help & Advice / Trouble with samba shares at bootup
« on: June 15, 2017, 07:30:44 pm »
I've got Gadmin Samba, Samba Status Moitor, Samba & Windows Shares all installed as I didn't know what each of them are specifically designed to do.

The main problem I'm having is that the shares ares available at bootup, I have to mess around entering passwords in the aforementioned programs to get the shares working.

Can anyone help me try and get the shares working at bootup, I've even tried setting them to run at boot but that still didn't work.

General Help & Advice / [SOLVED] Second monitor greyed out!
« on: June 03, 2017, 11:34:59 am »
I have just tried using a second monitor, which has been connected for almost a year.
I last used it less than a week ago.
My main PC is in our bedroom and the 'other' monitor is the TV in the living room.
when I go into 'settings' / 'display & monitor' I see both monitors but the secondary one is 'greyed out'

What I think is strange  is that when I reboot, the second monitor springs into life, showing the 'kubuntu' name
Then on boot-up, nothing.

I've checked the connections and there's nothing wrong with them, otherwise there would be no 'screen' in the settings display.

« on: May 30, 2017, 12:10:30 am »
I have discovered there's a problem trying to link Digikam to my facebook account.
I found THIS, which explains the problem and the solution but it's a few years old and knowing facebook, it no longer works.
Has anyone else had or got the same problem and figured a solution?

General Help & Advice / Need to shutdown program before reboot
« on: May 25, 2017, 01:47:48 am »
I need to somehow have Thunderbird shutdown automatically before reboot as every time I reboot I get a warning that Thunderbird is already running.
The only option I have ATM is physically shutting it down every time I need to reboot.

General Help & Advice / [ON HOLD] Kubuntu 16.04 failing to boot
« on: May 21, 2017, 02:56:23 pm »
I've not long installed Kubuntu 16.04 on my new laptop and I am now unable to boot to either the desktop OR a Multi-Boot USB.

When I have the Multi-boot USB in, I see a warning flash up very quick which says 'Could not open "\efi\boot\fallback' then I get the GRUB Terminal screen with 'grub>'

Without the Multi-boot USB in, it boot as normal then gets to the login screen where I enter my password then the screen goes blank/black with the mouse in the middle and that's it, nothing else happens...

I was able to use LibreOffice to print a document and use the database function with multiple addresses to output to pdf producing multiple documents with different addresses.

For some unknown reason, I am now unable to do this.
I have no ides why I am now unable.

As the subject header says, I'm trying to link up two computers.
Desktop is Kubuntu 14.04 and Laptop is Kubuntu 16.04.
How do I connect one to the other. I have done some 'Googling' and not got far as the stuff I find talks about clicking a 'configure' button and then instructions after it, but I can't see anything like it, the instructions are all out of date.
Here are the sites I've been on...

General Help & Advice / New install of printers not as should be
« on: May 01, 2017, 12:16:23 pm »
I did a new install of Kubuntu 16.04 and tried installing 2 Epson printers, XP-640 & ET-2550.

epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_1.6.13-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb
&
epson-printer-utility_1.0.2-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb
&
imagescan-bundle-ubuntu-16.04-1.3.20.x64.deb.tar.gz

On my Desktop 14.04 I have both installed and have more printer settings available, such as Duplex printing.
Is there anything I'm doing wrong or are there any newer drivers out there as I've found that there's no driver for the XP-640, There are drivers for the 600,610,630 & 630 but NOT 640!

After much messing about trying to make this laptop a dual boot, then wiping Window$ to make it only Kubuntu 14.04 but having problems I decided to go for it and wipe it and install Kubuntu 16,04.

I am now STILL without wireless.
I ran through the info gathering commands you gave me in THIS THREAD and one came up with nothing.

well, the subject header basically explains my problem.
I did a little searching and found something but it was related to a DELL, which I'm using an HP Pavilion and didnt want to type anything which might corrupt my install as I'm guessing it might be slightly different. I did gind a command which might help diagnose...

General Help & Advice / Importing Packages List
« on: April 26, 2017, 05:37:12 pm »
I notice in Muon Update Manager there's a few options to do with updates,
'Add Downloaded Packages','Save Installed Packages List','Download Packages From List'

I previously managed to install Kubuntu 14.04 on a laptop which dah Window$ on and now, to save time, I want to be able to import a list of installed packages from my desktop PC to my laptop.

How do I do this?

14
I decided to wipe Window$10 And do a fresh install of Kubuntu 14.04.
However, I have encountered a problem, A window popped up with 'Unable to configure GRUB'
Executing 'grub-update' failed
This is a fatal error.

I'm stumped.

15
I did try and piece together other peoples forum posts on dual-booting with Window$ & Ubuntu but got lost.

I have an HP Pavilion Intel Core i5-7200U 2.50Ghz 2.71Ghz

I have created a Multiboot USB stick and I'd like to make my laptop a dual-boot with Kubuntu 14.04.
My HD is 1Tb and the OS is on a partition sized at 917Gb, the rest is used for recovery.

What should I do first?
