19.04 just installed … where is Wifi?

  1. HP Pavilion dv9700. (10-year-old laptop.)
  2. Bad video on monitor (but good video on external monitor).
  3. Wondered what would happen with Lubuntu. (Answer: good video on laptop monitor!)
  4. No Wifi.
  5. No networking, period, even with ethernet cable.
  6. I see many suggestions online, but I chose Lubuntu because reviewers said it had a good GUI. DOS was great, but I don’t have time or energy to learn the Linux command line. Sorry, my problem, just making it known from the start. But I’ll try if it’s not overwhelming.
  7. It must be a bad installation. Can’t believe everyone would find Wifi so hard to establish.
  8. My desktop has an icon named “Network.” Opening it, I see one icon named “Windows network.” Opening that I see “Failed to retrieve share list from server: no such file or directory.” Clicking OK, I see “The specified location is not mounted.”
  9. Before installing Lubuntu, the laptop was running Win 7 and Wifi worked perfectly. So the hardware is good.
  10. All ideas and suggestions welcomed. Thanks.

No Bluetooth Adapter found Ubuntu 19.04

My Bluetooth adapter suddenly disappeared, and I have been trying to fix it but no luck.

I have tried to enable or start it again but its status is still inactive.

What else can I do?

Ubuntu 19.04 fail to suspend on idle

I have a desktop machine running ubuntu 19.04

until a couple of days ago, while the machine goes idle correctly, after the latest software upgrades, it doesn’t run correctly:

Now, the system first shut down the screen, then, while attempting to suspend the machine, it fails and the machine continue running.

But, if I move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard, nothing happens.

The only way to resume is to force the suspend status with the power button, then the machine can be resumed.

As I didn’t make any change on the machine, I suppose that the incorrect behavior derive from the latest software upgrade.

Non-working SYNA3602 touchpad on Xubuntu 19.04

I have a non-working SYNA3602 touchpad on a Trekstor Prime book C11B notebook. I am on Xubuntu 19.04.

There are a few threads on problems with this touchpad on different forums (most threads from 2018) and a patch available under the following link: https://github.com/brotfessor/sipodev

Though, the patch should be included in the mainline Kernel since Linux v4.19 and I have tried different Kernels from 5.0 upwards. Currently I am running 5.2.0-050200-generic.

dmesg | grep -i i2c-syna gives me the follwing output: Code: [ 3.039251] i2c_hid i2c-SYNA3602:00: i2c-SYNA3602:00 supply vdd not found, using dummy regulator [ 3.039281] i2c_hid i2c-SYNA3602:00: i2c-SYNA3602:00 supply vddl not found, using dummy regulator [ 3.045751] i2c_hid i2c-SYNA3602:00: unexpected HID descriptor bcdVersion (0x00ff) Is anybody able to help me ?

Thank you in advance! ea

How can I install Swift on Ubuntu 19.04 for Android’s Termux App

This is my very first question in this forum. Sorry for my bad english, please advise if it is not the right place to do it.

I’ve tried to install Swift for Ubuntu 19.04 on Termux App for Android following the answer of another question in this Forum: (How can I install Swift on Ubuntu 19.04?).

The reason is to continue compiling code offline while I’m in a plane or without internet connection. The steps followed are shown below (in short):

1- Since there is no way to install Swift for Ubuntu 19.04 I downloaded this file for version 18.04 as recommended (swift-4.2-DEVELOPMENT-SNAPSHOT-2018-10-30-a-ubuntu18.04.tar.gz).

2- Extracted the file and copied the folder to home directory in order to run locally.

3- Added the path to Swift with the following command which didn’t work:

$   export PATH="/home/your-username/swift/swift-4.2-DEVELOPMENT-SNAPSHOT-2018-10-30-a-ubuntu18.04/usr/bin:$  PATH"   $   source ~/.bashrc 

4-Then I made amendments found in the web in order to write .bashrc:

$   echo "export PATH=/home/myusername/swift/swift-4.2-DEVELOPMENT-SNAPSHOT-2018-10-30-a-ubuntu18.04/usr/bin:$  PATH" >> ~/.bashrc $   source ~/.bashrc 

5-The output writed in the end of .bashrc file was this:

export PATH=/home/user-name/swift/swift-4.2-DEVELOPMENT-SNAPSHOT-2018-10-30-a-ubuntu18.04/usr/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games 

6- Then I tried to run Swift in terminal and I got this error message:

$   swift                        bash: swift: command not found 

For me it seems that the echo command appended the swift-4.2…/usr/bin path along with the others PATHs already set up in Ubuntu’s Termux separate by collon, yet it doesn’t allow me to call Swift REPL from Terminal.

Please help, thanks

Ubuntu 19.04 installer hangs on keyboard layout selection

I’m trying to install Ubuntu 19.04 on a Dell Optiplex 790. I’m getting the issue where the installer hangs with an infinite spinning mouse pointer wheel when I click on “Continue” upon selecting the keyboard layout. Here are some things to note:

  1. It matters not weather I select “Try Ubuntu” or “Install Ubuntu”
  2. same thing when booting from a USB drive, an HDD connected to SATA or a DVD
  3. The USB drives where prepared with DD
  4. The DVD’s(2 of them) where burned with Windows 10 and K3B on Kubuntu
  5. I tried to set the “nomodeset” parameter as explained on other posts but it did not work for me, unless I didn’t do it properly.
  6. Since Ubuntu was giving me this issue, I tried to install PopOS and I got the same problem :-S
  7. Unfortunately, I don’t have access to another computer to test.

This is my setup:

CPU: Intel i5-2400 (4) @ 3.400GHz GPU: AMD ATI Radeon RX 580 Memory: 11961MiB Storage: KingDian 120GB SSD

This is the first time in probably 10 years that I’m having issues installing Ubuntu. Any clues would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you have any additional questions as well.
