My wifes laptop recently went in to get the screen fixed and it came back not working.
The repair report: 'What we've done... We have repaired the parts listed below. TO HELP PREVENT ISSUES IN THE FUTURE WE HAVE ALSO RESET THE INCORRECT SETTINGS TO DEFAULT. Cleaned your heatsink & fan and tightened some loose screws. We then ran some system checks to ensure your issue has been fully resolved.

nice that they don't tell me exactly WHAT settings they have reset.

Because of their tinkering with things they had no need to tinker with as all they needed to do was replace the laptop lid & screen, I am now unable to connect wirelessly to the internet.

The laptop is an ASUS Notebook X541B running Kubuntu 16.04

As the title says, I am unable to configure a network connection to
One glaringly obvious reason is when setting up dolphin network access, I am not required to enter a password anywhere, yet requires a password.

So, the question is, am I wasting my time trying to configure an ftp connection to using Dolphin?

I have tried to install filezilla (3.37.1) but I have no idea how to install the the tar.bz2 archive. I have also tried to install the version in the repo's for 16.04   but I am unable due to dependency issues, which the installation does not inform me of which dependencies it needs.

General Help & Advice / Unable to get script working when I need it to
« on: September 13, 2018, 04:52:10 pm »
I'm trying to get a script to work on boot, but I'm having problems.
I want the script to execute after I have got an internet connection as they will be useless if executed before.

I want the script to do three things;
1 connect to a VPN
2 start onedrive (using dolphin, I can access my MS OneDrive folder(s)
3 start GoogleDrive (same as #2)

Yet, when the script is run, nothing happens.
The script

sleep 30
expressvpn connect ukdo
onedrive-d start
google-drive-ocamlfuse /media/pooky2483/EXT-05-8Tb/Google-Drive/

I would also like to be notified which command is being executed, possibly by way of some kind of on-screen message.

As the title suggests, I can't render a clip as Kdenlive is not being allowed to write the file.
I've tried what you, Mark, suggest in THIS thread (post#4). Yet, I am still unable to render the file...
The location is '/media/pooky2483/EXT-02-4Tb/Video/Kdenlive/'
How can I change the ownership & permission of the whole drive, except the 'lost+found' folder?

General Help & Advice / [ON-HOLD] System Freezing Up Regularly
« on: August 22, 2018, 03:43:37 am »
For the past week (possibly 2), my OS has been freezing up and taking a while to recover itself.
I have had the same couple of programs run at start and not installed any extra programs and only installed what the system wanted to install as updates.
The CPU History in the System Monitor shows the CPU's, either one or all 4 spiking at 100% and the system then locks up with me unable to do anything until the CPU usage drops back to normal.
I have added another tab to show the temp of the CPU and MoBo and they were high, spiking at 80C. I have since cleaned all the dust out and the temp has lowered to a high of 45C and the system still freezes.
I can be simply clicking on another program to bring its window to the front and the system will freeze, sometimes the clock will still show as normal with the seconds cycling though 00 - 59 and sometimes the clock will also freeze.
I have just done a system update and the system is still freezing.

The screenshot above shows the CPU's at 100% and all I had done was to select the System Monitor to show itself.

I an trying to move files of a certain filetype from many folders to one folder of a specific filetype, such as MKV, MP3, AVI, PDF etc.. etc..
I am using a file recovery program to recover files and it saves them in batches of around 500 of multiple filetypes.
What I want to do is put each filetype into their own folder.

I am currently doing this manually, which is going to take a lonnnnnng time as there's nearly 1000 folders so far.

How can I do this in terminal using mv recursively (if it can do that).

I've installed testdisk and searched for an answer on how to install the gui but was unable to find the solution.
I found THIS thread but even after trying it, I get a warning that it's not production ready!!!

Even though I click on the 'OK', the program stops.

Is there any way I can get the GUI installed?

I'm having issues with Firefox.
The issue is the 'tooptips', they are appearing as black-on-black.

I've been on the Mozilla forum and someone sugegsted I upgrade to the next GTK Theme (Currently 3).
Would it be OK to do that or would it make the system unstable?

I was able to print earlier, 26 March was the last time I was able then for some reason I am now unable to get anything to print, even 'Test Print' does not work.
I'm using an Epson ET3600.
I've tried rebooting both printer & PC, still nothing prints.
I thought it could be to do with the size of what I'm printing, a book with over 600 pages, so I used a PDF editor and chopped it up into 100 pages and I still get the same result... nothing prints.

I also tried searching to see if anyone else had the same problem, but did not find a solution!

I'm at a loss at to figure out how to fix it!

I am unable to select an ISO after creating a virtualbox OS and then deleting it, then creating tone with the same name, I don't get the option to select an ISO as the set-up skips that step and goes straight into trying to boot.

As the title says, I am unable to 'see' any USB device.
How do I fix the problem?
The VM is installed on my desktop PC. The VM I'm trying to get to 'see' the USB devices is Kubuntu 16.04.

I recently discovered I could access my Google Drive from Dolphin when I found THIS video.
I tried following the instructions using Terminal but it would not install
Code: [Select]
 sudo apt-get kacounts-providers kio-gdrive

I found that kaccounts-providers was already installed and kio-gdrive would not install.

I then thought of trying to install using synaptic and that's when I found that kio-gdrive was not in the repo, so I did a little more digging and found THIS site where I found the following commands,
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install gnome-control-center gnome-online-accounts
I decided to use synaptic again, but I encountered yet more problems...

unity-scope-gdrive has broken dependencies.
account-plugin-google wants to be installed and when I click to continue and install, I get;

General Help & Advice / [SOLVED] Platform Device Creation Failed
« on: December 22, 2017, 08:19:56 pm »
I have just tried to reboot my laptop (Kubuntu 16.04) and it failed to boot OK, I got the following warning;
I had not long ago had the same problem (less than a week) and after a quick google, found no solution, so I had to resort to re-installing the system. I don't want to have to do that this time. I tried Boot Repair Disk but it reported it could not continue due to having a UEFI partition or something similar.

I'm using ExpressVPN and while connected I am unable to connect to the scanner.
I've contacted ExpressVPN and they said to go to a Linux forum (so much for customer support eh!)

General Help & Advice / Xsane & Epson Printers
« on: October 21, 2017, 04:51:57 pm »
Just wondering, is there anyone out there with an Epson all-in-one.
I an having problems scanning documents.
What is happening is, the scanned result is coming out with the white paper darker than the original, where there should be no colour. I've tried changing the settings but I'm getting nowhere and the 'preview' button changes the settings, yet even those settings are producing a rubbish result.

I never had this problem with HP printers, but I don't want to go back to HP as I have 2 Eco-Tanks and as anyone else knows, who's got one, you save a packet on not buying cartridges.

Has anyone with an Epson managed to get the settings in Xsane right, so that it scans as an almost exact copy of the original.
