Fix or reset “Automatic Date & Time” in Ubuntu 18.10

I have an issue where the date and time is set wrong when I use Automatic Date & Time in Settings to set the time from the internet. I’ve attached screen shots to show what happens when I enable the feature.

I’ve booted from a Live USB and enabled the feature and it worked fine.

How can I fix this? Or, what apps and configs are involved in this feature and how can I see if they are corrupt or just reinstall the package(s) and config file(s) to default?

Missing all the small icons on submenus. Ubuntu 18.10 Gnome 3.30.1

I have noticed that in my Ubunto 18.10/Gnome 3.10.1 it is missing all the small icons that should be on the left side of the application submenus. This problem occurs in all installed software. Even those that are installed together with Ubunto. Applications work flawlessly, but the absence of these little icons slows the understanding of complex application functions a bit.Any help?

Attached is a print of my screen with a submenu where the icons are missing.enter image description here

kubuntu 18.10 HDMI TV not working

I have a Lenovo ideapad 310, with an AMD A12 APU and kubuntu 18.10. My graphics driver are the mesa drivers from ppa:Dibaf/graphics-drivers, of which the current version is 19.0~git1811211930. When I plug an HDMI cable to a TV, there is no image on the TV. In kubuntu’s screen settings, only the laptop display appears. But xrandr says it has detected the HDMI TV:

$  xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 16384 x 16384 eDP connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 193mm    1920x1080     60.05*+    1680x1050     60.05      1280x1024     60.05      1440x900      60.05      1280x800      60.05      1280x720      60.05      1024x768      60.05      800x600       60.05      640x480       60.05   HDMI-A-0 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 1152mm x 648mm    1920x1080     60.00*+  50.00    59.94    30.00    25.00    24.00    29.97    23.98      1680x1050     60.00      1280x1024     60.02      1440x900      60.00      1280x960      60.00      1360x768      59.80      1280x800      60.00      1280x720      60.00    60.00    59.94      1024x768      60.00      800x600       60.32      720x576       50.00      720x480       60.00    59.94      640x480       60.00    59.94   DisplayPort-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 

And in kubuntu’s screen configuration, clicking on the (i) button which I presume is for identifying the screens, both screen names appear superimposed on the laptop display:


Also commands such as:

xrandr --output HDMI-A-0 --mode 1920x1080 xrandr --output HDMI-A-0 --auto --same-as eDP xrandr --output HDMI-A-0 --auto --left-of eDP 

do nothing.

Any help? thanks!

Why is init listening on port 14500 on ubuntu 18.10

I am running Ubuntu 18.10, up to date as of now. I see init listening on port 14500. This does not change after a reboot. I don’t recall ever seeing this before. Here is the relevant line from “sudo netstat -anp” output. Can anyone help me understand what this is?

    tcp6       0      0 :::14500                :::*                    LISTEN      1/init               

My web searching didn’t turn up any reason for this, so I’m asking here.

Printer Problems in Ubuntu 18.10

I have an Epson WF-2750 printer that is recognized by Ubuntu 18.10. I have scanned an image using the same “printer” and had no problems with Simple Scan. However the default pdf viewer of Ubuntu doesn’t show my printer and Foxit says “Error while printing the file” when I select my printer. I am completely new to Ubuntu, any idea why this might happen?

EDIT: LibreOffice prints fine, seems to be a problem only with pdfs 🙁

My Asus T100TAF can’t see installed Ubuntu 18.10

I installed Ubuntu 18.10 on my Asus T100 TAF. Pure installation, no other OS. After clicking last command “restart system”, system starts but from USB again, with menu: try Ubuntu, install Ubuntu, and so on…

When i tried to enter setup before boot, there were no boot options, like there was never ever system before. When i remove USB after installation, only bios starts. When I restore “secure boot – enabled” – ther is no Ubuntu marks of life.

Initially there was Win10 preinstalled by manufacturer. Obviously i was fed up with this software and its’ spontanous behaviour.

Android Emulator problem on Turkish Ubuntu 18.10

I just installed Ubuntu 18.10 with Turkish language. And installed Android studio and emulator. Emulator is crashed to start with this command “./emulator -avd Nexus_5_API_21 -qemu -m 2047 -enable-kvm”. But qemu/kvm is working properly with virt-manager GUI.

Android Emulator is working with Ubuntu English system language without problem but when I change system language to turkish again crashed.
