Wireless Card Not Detected – Intel Wireless 3160 on Lubuntu 18.04

I’ve searched for the past month and half for a solution, yet nothing has worked. My computer cannot pick up on any wifi networks and says “No network devices available”. I have tried installing multiple different ubuntu/lubuntu operating systems, but they all have the same problem. Thus, I think it’s something wrong with my hardware? Or that there is a problem with the computer reading my Wireless Card? Not sure…

I am currently using Lubutu 18.04 Bionic Beaver Kernel 4.15.0-20 generic I have internet access via ethernet cable

I have tried in the terminal…

Any help is greatly appreciated. I have used lubuntu for a year and love it. I don’t want to switch back to Windows.

Firefox text issue on fresh Lubuntu 18.10 install

I’m seeing the following when I open up Firefox:

enter image description here

I’m not sure what’s going on with the overlapping text in the tabs and address bar, or why there are what appear to be multiple transparent white boxes over them and the nearby buttons.

Even the text on the preferences tab seems odd, but the biggest issue here seems to be the fact that I can’t see which of my checkboxes are actually checked. I’ve confirmed that the intended effect is observed when clicking, but the tick just doesn’t appear in the box.

A quick browse of random sites shows that pages load normally. The issue is happening with the version of Firefox that comes installed with Lubuntu, the version of Firefox I got after an update, and then a version of Firefox from the firefox-next PPA. All have the same issues.

Can’t find Sublime in Lubuntu 18.10

According to http://tipsonubuntu.com/2017/05/30/install-sublime-text-3-ubuntu-16-04-official-way/, apt-get install sublime-text was the right way to install Sublime.

Unfortunately, I can’t find it in Lubuntu 18.10.

I’ve already updated the system (sudo apt update), but still can’t find it. What seems to be the issue here?

lubuntu v18.10 LXQt Desktop Applic Icon Change

I put lubuntu v18.10 on a 250Gb SSD Drv, and have been using it in conjunction with the lubuntu v18.04 on a 2Tb drive, and a multiboot arrangement on the internal drive of the current system of choise. I use a persistent setup in all setups. I am happy to be able to boot an LXQt Desktop w/v18.10, but have also been combining The Net for an answer to this issue that I’ve inflicted upon new LXQt Desktop. I managed to get an application icon to rest upon the in-use/interactive lubuntu v18.10 LXQt Desktop in use. However, ‘Emacs (GUI)’ doesn’t disseminate a whole lot of info, as I have been using, saving, and reinstalling it over the years; and have several setups, depending upon the abilities instilled via applic distribution. I went mental, and decided that a little tweek, in order to present better distrib info shouldn’t be toooo, crazzzzzzyyyyyyyy, eh? Well, guess what, I’ve come here to ask other’s that may know, or have been successful in finding the proper manner to such a procedure on lubuntu v18.10 LXQt’s Desktop. I was also fiddling with the Menu –> Preferences –> LXQt Settings for Desktop and/or OpenBox, as well; so really crossed into Siberia, without a down jacket n gloves! I did manage to track down the icon, in many different sizes in /usr/share/icons/Papirus/XxY/apps, but have yet to figure out how to get the destop to enable an association between this application representative icon, with any of them, and fill the one that I renamed on this working setup. Any ideas? Might it be necessary to create an LXDT to LXQt migrant theme tool, or something? I suspect that it will turn out to have something necessarily updated/changed in .local, but nobody else seems to have made such info obvious online yet, and solve such an otherwise, seeming minuscule tweek.

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.

Lubuntu 18.04: launch .Desktop app as root

been LUbuntu user for many years, recently upgraded from 16.04 to 18.04. In previous versions if I wanted to launch an app from desktop as superuser (for example, starting a service) I created two files, one start_tomcat.sh with following content:

#!/bin/bash gksudo service tomcat8 start 

and then .Desktop file including this line:

Exec=sh -c start_tomcat.sh 

but now gksudo is not included in distribution anymore. Is there any alternative?

crontab no funciona en lubuntu 18.04.01

Se que esta pregunta la han hecho infinidad de veces, y tengo varias horas viendo posibles soluciones y ninguna encaja con lo que me pasa, así que me animé a hacer esta pregunta, porque debe ser un detalle, pero no logro verlo.

mi script

cat elorat /home/elorat/tareas/hora.sh 

.

archivo='/home/elorat/logs/pagina/hora.log' echo "" >> $  archivo echo date >> $  archivo echo "" echo date 

lo listo:

$   ll hora.sh 

.

Lo agrego para que se ejecute cada minuto con mi perfil de usuario:
