Ubuntu 18.10 is much slower with Wayland than X.org

Disclaimer: I am not that advanced Ubuntu/Linux user.

I have just recently installed Ubuntu 18.10 on my desktop. There is an issue which I can’t understand: if I start a session with Wayland (choosing this while logging in), the system noticeably slower. I mean, even the mouse and typing are with a small (but noticeable) delay. If I run htop, I see that all the cores are constantly 40-50% busy, and the most CPU-hungry processes are **gnome-shell*.

Where can I look into the problem in my Ubuntu? What to start with?

Lubuntu 18.10 PACMan-Qt does not access samba shares

When I try to access shares with Lubuntu/PACMan-QT it only shows the / directory on the Lubuntu machine. I downloaded Nautilus, and it does not have this problem. Is there a fiex in PACMan? Alternatively, how can Nautilus be made default file manager in Lubuntu, and/or be given a menu entry or taskbar icon for one click start? Thank you for your help.

geany 1.32 – change color of bracket matching 18.10 MATE

In this version the highlight for matching brackets is dark blue which against a black foreground font is not a significant highlight. Ubuntu 18.10 MATE.

How can I set this to a brighter color?

Web query results haven’t much for geany on this topic. The solution given here https://lists.geany.org/pipermail/users/2015-December/009843.html does not work for me. The filetypes-common file does not have a [named-styles] section so I added one.

This has no effect. Is there an updated solution, or is there something else amiss?

18.10 Unmounts external HDD when session locks

I have an external HDD I use for backups (rsync during night) and other stuff. On 16.04 it was mounted all the time and I did not have any problems. In 18.04 however, after I lock my session, the disk spins down and gets unmounted.

The mountpoint is /media/username/NameOfDisk and the device is /dev/dm-0

Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

BTW: I tried

sdparm –save –clear=STANDBY /dev/dm-0

and got

unable to access /dev/dm-0, ATA disk?

Git completion fails after updating to Ubuntu 18.10 Cosmic Cuttlefish

I recently updated to Ubuntu 18.10 and after that my git completion has been failing.

Bash is able to complete the first command successfully, for example (I’ll use ↬ to indicate TAB was used)

$   ala↬ $   alacritty 

But when I use tab to complete a git command it fails.

$   git stat↬ $   git status #should be $   git statunknown option: --list-cmds=list-mainporcelain,others,nohelpers,alias,list-complete,config usage: git [--version] [--help] [-C <path>] [-c <name>=<value>]        [--exec-path[=<path>]] [--html-path] [--man-path] [--info-path]        [-p | --paginate | --no-pager] [--no-replace-objects] [--bare]        [--git-dir=<path>] [--work-tree=<path>] [--namespace=<name>]        <command> [<args>] 

I’ve tried reinstalling bash-completion

$   sudo apt install --reinstall bash-completion  

Check if it was some issue in my ~/.bashrc Link

Do you have an idea how to fix this?

Ubuntu 18.10 Xorg Server Error Logout

I recently built a new PC and installed Ubuntu 18.10. I am having issues with being logged out and returning to the login after opening certain Applications (Settings, Handbrake etc).

Logging in via startx and attempting to open these applications results in a similar logout with the following Xorg Error Stack Trace:

Ubuntu 18.10 wifi constantly prompts for password

I’m on Ubuntu 18.10 using Network Manager. My wifi was working fine but after a normal regular update it now prompts me constantly for my wifi password and will not connect. I don’t know what was updated as I usually just accept the suggested upgrades without paying too much attention.

I have searched through this and other forums where there are lots of fixes suggested, most are for older versions or hardware specific. None worked for me.

I have another Ubuntu laptop running 18.04 and it has no issues. I also have 2 Mac laptops with no issues. The laptop with the issue is a Lenovo E460.

I have tried logging in to three different access points, the same issue persists. I am using Personal WPA2 with preshared key. This has not changed and the same works with all other devices mentioned. I am 100% sure the I have typed it correctly and have re-entered it to check.

I have deleted the connection in Network Manager and readded it.

Output from dmesg -H is:
