I have a Fontconfig Error in Chromium Ubuntu 18.04 wayland

Firstly my emoticons are just black and white on youtube and other sites. It worked up until a couple months ago, then randomly worked a couple days ago. I tried installing Noto and I think I may have tried another font package when it first happened months ago. I barely know what I’m doing and would love some help because I’ve spent hours searching for answers. Also my synaptic package manager wont open and I don’t know if I installed it from a deb package or ppa on the terminal.

Opening chromium-browser from the terminal ~$ chromium-browser Using PPAPI flash. Fontconfig error: “/home/User1/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf”, line 10: Extra content at the end of the document

Opening font.conf in nano shows
test name=”family”>serif edit name=”family” mode=”prepend” binding=”strong”> string>Noto Color Emoji /edit> /match>

match> test name=”family”>Apple Color Emoji edit name=”family” mode=”prepend” binding=”strong”> string>Noto Color Emoji /edit> /match>

I had to take off the front brackets for the code to show because I dont know what Im doing here trying to post my fontsconf file from Nano. It looks like this without it

GNU nano 2.9.3 fonts.conf

serif Noto Color Emoji

Apple Color Emoji Noto Color Emoji

here are my installed font packages, I upgraded from 14.04 to 18.04

Entering keys doesn’t work on 18.04 with gnome-tweaks

I have a Hungarian keyboard, here’s the layout.

enter image description here

I’ve just updated to 18.04 (from 16.04) and now I can’t enter [AltGr]+[<key>] and [letter] or [AltGr]+[Shift]+[<key>] and [letter] combinations anymore. What I get is just separate glyphs/character, e.g. instead of an à (a with grave accent), which used to work by entering [AltGr]+[Shift]+[7] and then hitting a, I now get just ´a (acute accent and a)

I have gnome-tweaks installed, and I didn’t know it’s going to override (or rather mess up) entering key combinations. It doesn’t matter if I enable Compose Key in it, or whatever key I set as Compose Key, entering keys doesn’t work. Even the default example (‘compose key followed by C and o will enter ©‘) provided doesn’t work.

Characters, that can be entered in 1 step do work, e.g. [AltGr]+[Shift]+o to get Ø works (see keyboard layout).

But characters where I first need to release keys and then hit another key don’t, e.g. as described above with à.

enter image description here

I don’t care how fancy this Compose Key is, I just want the old way of entering keys (based on my keyboard layout) back, because I rely on it heavily. Do I need to get rid of gnome-tweaks?

Does ubuntu 18.04 delete files without my consent?

I installed Ubuntu 18.04 for development but it’s giving me countless frustrations. First I had to reinstall postgres because, for whatever reason, I logged in and it wasn’t working. Today I log in and my python virtual environment isn’t working – turns out the bin directory is somehow lost! I did what anyone would do: rm -r venv, create a new venv, and reinstall packages. Just as I thought all was done, ran into errors and figured my .env file had been deleted!

Has anyone else faced such issues? It’s driving me crazy!!!

How to install the latest Linux Kernel, Mesa, Intel/AMD GPU drivers, and Xorg.. on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS?

On Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, how to get:

  • Linux Kernel: 5.0 or newer.
  • Mesa Library: 19.0 or newer.
  • Intel Graphics Driver: …? (latest)
  • AMD Graphics Driver: …? (latest)
  • Xorg: …? (latest)

I have two machines, one with a GPU from Intel, the other from AMD.

Another way to ask this question would be: how to optimize gaming (e.g. Steam) and make the most out of newish-hardware, specifically on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS?

Can Ubuntu 18.04 be fixed without reinstalling

I have win 7 and installed Ubuntu 18.04. It went well and I used it for most of the day. Then I rebooted and chose win7. It did come up but it couldn’t access anything. Like the explorer would not come up and it couldn’t run any programs.
I re-installed it and now it comes up but Ubuntu doesn’t.
So, I thought I’d go through the Ubuntu install and see if there was an option to “fix”, but all it comes up with is to remove that and re-install over it.
Isn’t there some way to do this without a complete re-install? (I was so proud to have gotten my Thunderbird contents moved to Ubuntu, I’d hate to have to do that again). Thanks

View PDFs with jp2/jpeg200 images in Ubuntu 18.04

After exporting PDFs from Goodnotes 5 on iOS, I realized that it exports the embedded images in jpeg2000/jp2 format within the PDF file.

Is there any PDF viewer which can be used to view such PDFs with jp2 images? I tried the default document viewer, okular and Foxit reader. The document viewer and okular show a very pixelated image while Foxit reader doesn’t show anything at all.

Any help would be appreciated.

How to access Windows drives from 18.04 within a VMware guest?

I have not found a solution to this though there appear to be many similar Q’s.

I have a Windows 10 host. I have created a ubuntu 18.04 LTS guest inside a VMware workstation 15 player. The installation used Easy Install (by default and I left it as such) which I understand installs the necessary vmware tools.

I have enabled shared folders within vmware workstation player to provide access to the desired Windows folders.

However, the Windows folders are not visible to me within the ubuntu guest – neither as an ordinary user nor as root (I’ve enabled the root user password).

I have successfully done this previously but with a Slackware guest. I’m new to Ubuntu and am assuming there is something with Ubuntu that I have not understood or done.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.



How to add second extra network interface on Ubuntu 18.04 VM on OpenStack

I have a public interface on a Ubuntu 18.04 VM hosted by a provider that uses OpenStack. Now I want to add a second extra interface for the internal network. I’m not sure how to do that.

Using the web interface of the hosting provider I can add the internal network. After I add this I can see the network interface but no IP address is assigned. Reboot also doesn’t help here.

So for example ip a shows

1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000     link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00     inet scope host lo        valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever     inet6 ::1/128 scope host         valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 2: ens3: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UP group default qlen 1000     link/ether fa:16:3e:e7:0b:19 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff     inet (MY PUBLIC IP)/24 brd scope global dynamic ens3        valid_lft 84480sec preferred_lft 84480sec     inet6 fe80::f816:3eff:fee7:b19/64 scope link         valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 3: ens7: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN group default qlen 1000     link/ether fa:16:3e:e3:4f:3f brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff 

My public ip shows up but the interface I added gets no IP address.

I added the ens7 interface to /etc/netplan/50-cloud-init.yaml as follows

# This file is generated from information provided by # the datasource.  Changes to it will not persist across an instance. # To disable cloud-init's network configuration capabilities, write a file # /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg.d/99-disable-network-config.cfg with the following: # network: {config: disabled} network:     version: 2     ethernets:         ens3:             dhcp4: true             match:                 macaddress: fa:16:3e:e7:0b:19             set-name: ens3         ens7:             dhcp4: true             match:                 macaddress: fa:16:3e:e3:4f:3f             set-name: ens7 

When I run netplan apply my SSH connection is immediately disconnected and I can no longer access the machime from the internet.

When I use the console and run ip a I see exactly the results I expected however. ens3 has the correct public IP and ens7 has the correct private ip.

I also have a Ubuntu 16.04 VM. Using that cloud image I was able to do this by editing /etc/network/interfaces.d/50-cloud-init.cfg and adding

auto eth1 iface eth1 inet dhcp 

But now I want to do something similar on Ubuntu 18.04 VM.

Why am I unable to access the machine using SSH from the internet? IP configuration looks okay.

What is the correct way to add a VM to a second internal private network when using an Ubuntu 18.04 cloud image on OpenStack?

BTW, I am using Ubuntu cloud image bionic-server-cloudimg-amd64.img

How to install orca in Ubuntu 18.04

I am using python library called plotly. I need to export the graphs as eps files. I use this line:


But this generates an error by my python code saying:

If you haven't installed orca yet, you can do so using conda as follows:      $   conda install -c plotly plotly-orca 

When I try to execute the above command, I get error:

conda: command not found 

When I try to install conda using:

sudo pat-get install conda 

I also get error saying it can not find this pacakage.

Can anyone help me please install conda so I can use it with plotly library?
