I would like to remove the ‘Organize Desktop by Name’ action, or at least edit the desktop right click menu to put an indent between ‘paste’ and ‘Organize Desktop by Name’, so I don’t keep mucking up my desktop icon layout when I missclick and hit the latter when intending to hit the former.
Nautilus actions helps define and add new actions, but I’ve been unable to use it to remove already existing actions.
Any help is much appreciated.
Ubuntu 16.04 (machine 1) and
Windows 10 (machine2). I have connected the ubuntu to the wifi with IP
192.168.0.110 and I can browse internet easily.
I have to do remote
C++ development on ubuntu from windows using Visual studio. I have connected the Ethernet cable between ubuntu and windows. On both the side I have set the static IP i.e. ubuntu has
192.168.0.150 and windows has
192.168.0.149. I can ping windows from ubuntu and vice versa. But when I try to browse internet on Ubuntu, its not working. If I disconnect wired connection from ubuntu, I can browse the internet fine. I don’t know what I have done wrong here due to which I am not able to connect to internet on Ubuntu.
Can anyone please suggest any idea. Thanks
I have dual booted with Dell G3-3579 laptop with Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 10 (default). Whenever I am using Ubuntu and I put my laptop in sleep mode it sleeps as the screen turns black. But when I try to resume my session by pressing the power button nothing happens and eventually I am forced to force restart my laptop by long pressing the power button. How do I go about in solving this issue? Help is appreciated! Thanks in advanced!
I received a Lenovo V145 with only FreeDos on it and installed Ubuntu 16.04 on it (Format everything). For some reason I cannot connect to a Wireless network
lspci | grep Network 02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter
checking if blocked
lspci -knn | grep Net -A3; rfkill list 02:00.0 Network controller : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter [10ec:c821] Subsystem: Lenovo Device [17aa:c024] 0: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 1: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 2: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
I think it is there but I am not able to see it (in the menubar). Same with the Bluetooth, even after I turn it on manually using the system settings icon.
Is there a hidden option that gives me the option to connect to Wireless?
I am facing problem to connect wifi give me the solution
The GTX TItan X should support OpenGL 4.5: https://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-titan-x/specifications
However, I fail to upgrade OpenGL beyond version 1.4
glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version" > OpenGL version string: 1.4 (3.0 Mesa 18.0.5)
I have tried adding two PPAs (one then the other, not at the same time) which should solve the problem:
oibaf (taken from example from this answer: OpenGL/GLSL 4.5 on Ubuntu 19.04, Intel Integrated Graphics)
But for me nothing changes, even after multiple attempts/reboots. For example:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/updates sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade-dist sudo reboot glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version" > OpenGL version string: 1.4 (3.0 Mesa 18.0.5)
I have recently installed nvidia-415 (415.27) from PPA.
OS: Ubuntu 16.04
System: ASUS TUF FX504 (gaming)
NVIDIA: Geforce 1050 ti
CPU: intel i5 8th gen
following are the observations:-
- Nvidia mode works fine as I get output on nvidia-smi
- On switching to Intel mode using NVIDIA-Xserver setting, I get blank screen just after logout and also after reboot.
- On changing again to Nvidia mode using tty1 in recovery mode using prime-select nvidia everything works fine.

Been raked over the coals with this one.
16.04 crashed while running. Could not even get grub to come up. It is not a dual boot system. Only 16.04. Just screen flashing. No command line access with no ability to read log files. No ability to go back to run level 3 (systemctl in ubuntu). Nothing.
At first, I reinstalled grub from an 18.04 trial install. After that I Was able to select “ubuntu recovery” on boot but with no effect. Same flashing of the screen with no command line access.
I’m sure that it is not a physical problem with the disk. A few weeks ago this same thing happened on another drive. I cloned the drive with DDrescue to another drive. Data was ok. The problem followed the new drive, implying that the problem was in the operating system. Somehow, not sure how, I was able to boot the new drive.
Now I am “in” the new drive and the same thing happened.
Loaded 18.04 on top of 16.04 and I can mount 16.04 and see programs, data.
Is there a way back from this? I don’t want to have to download 300G on another drive at this point (downloading that much data is expensive).
Thank You Tom
I’ve been suffering a couple keyboard issues lately, wich they are:
Keyboard unresponsive after suspending (sleep). Tried to fix it with atkb.reset on Grub and also reinstalling xserver-xorg, this last thing worked for me the first time but never worked again.
Keyboard refuses to do CTRL+F4 combination, so I tried another combinations watching live key pressing on Settings -> Text Entry and does a weird thing because it doesn’t show nothing when I do CTRL+F1 (or F4) but it works for CTRL+F3 or CTRL+F5.
I read several links but none of them gave me the solution for this. ¿Maybe I should try to load an older kernel?
