Thinkpad T430, Ubuntu 18.04, No sound on startup sometimes

Sometimes I have sound when I start, sometimes I don’t. Rebooting has always fixed it so far…

Lenovo Thinkpad T430, Ubuntu Studio 18.04. No sound from headphones or speakers. Sound buttons on top panel don’t do anything.

I’d kinda like to have some tips on troubleshooting this from the terminal. ‘aprops’ suggestions, i.e.

Falcon browser startup problem

Falkon has worked perfectly since installed about 6 month ago, but after a reboot it would not launch. Several times I have tried uninstall, reboot, and then reinstall, but without success.

Always installed via “Ubuntu software”, which then shows Falkon is installed – but pressing the button “Launch”, nothing happens.The desktop shortcut is same.

A right-click on the icon says: "No Application found"

As a Linux newbee I have no idea where to look for the error.

As a test I installed “Stellarium”, and it runs perfectly.

My very first question here, I apologize if doing anything wrong.

OS: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS

From terminal:

~$   snap run falkon /snap/falkon/60/kf5-launch: line 209: /snap/falkon/60/kf5-locale-gen: No such file or directory  nano /snap/falkon/60/kf5-launch 

Here only the lower part of the: GNU nano 2.9.3 /snap/falkon/60/kf5-launch

[Paths]  Data = $  KF5/usr/share/qt5/  Translations = $  KF5/usr/share/qt5/translations  EOF  # requires `locales, libc-bin` being stage-packages  if [ -e $  KF5/usr/share/i18n ]; then  export I18NPATH=$  KF5/usr/share/i18n  locpath=$  XDG_DATA_HOME/locale  mkdir -p $  locpath  export LOCPATH=$  locpath:/usr/lib/locale # core snap contains C.UTF-8 already  LC_ALL=C.UTF-8 $  SNAP/kf5-locale-gen || exit 1      # <<< This is line 209  fi  exec "$  @" 

Startup stuck on /dev/nvme0n1p2: clean ?? HELP!

I’m a new user to Ubuntu and this is my last resort to try and fix my computer. I hope someone can help me.

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 , Intel core i3-1080p. Its brand new and it came with Windows but I have since installed Ubuntu and have been using it fine for I guess over a month. Everything worked fine, the installation went perfect.

I wanted to change the purple default login screen to a picture or a different color, so I looked up if you could do it. You could, but it had to be done through the terminal thing. This is the tutorial I followed to change it: https://vitux.com/how-to-change-login-lock-screen-background-in-ubuntu/

I followed the instructions precisely and everything looked exactly as they said it would, but I had to restart it for everything to take effect. This made sense, but when I restarted it, it blinked the desktop once and now I’m stuck with a black screen that says “/dev/nvme0n1p2: clean” etc at the top, along with a bunch of other things like “started user manager for UID 121” and “started session c1 of user gdm”. (I tried to add a photo of it to this post but it was too big apparently.)

The screen it’s stuck on normally shows up when I start the computer, and then it will go to the desktop and work fine, but now it just stays there. I can’t do anything with it. I’ve tried things like going through the GRUB menu, checking the boot menu, and nothing works. I’ve done so many different things I’ve lost count. I’ve called people, no one supports Ubuntu/Linux. I’m completely stuck. PLEASE HELP! I’m new to this and I leave for college tomorrow and this is my computer that i was going to use. I desperately need a solution.

SSH Pubkey Denied on System startup

I am having an issue where I can ssh into the machine (Linux Mint) perfectly fine using Pub-key authentication, but whenever I restart the machine Permission denied (publickey) This issue is resolved whenever I manually login at the physical machine. Any help would be appreciated.

Script set up via update-rc.d not being called on startup

A script should be called on startup. I did what the internet told me, but it does not get called on startup.

Script in /etc/init.d/my_script simply uses touch to create files to see if it works:

#!/bin/bash set -x  touch /home/db/called > /home/db/rc.log 2>&1  case "$  1" in   start)     touch /home/db/started > /home/db/rc.log 2>&1     ;;   stop)     touch /home/db/stopped > /home/db/rc.log 2>&1     #killall -u db > /home/db/rc.log 2>&1     ;;   *)     echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/test {start|stop}"     exit 1     ;; esac 

The internet says that I simply have to run sudo update-rc.d my_script defaults to register it.

When run via service my_script start it works fine. The files are created as expected. But after reboot no files appear. So I assume the script isn’t called at all, the log file rc.log also doesn’t appear. When looking through the rc*.d folders (via find /etc/rc* -name "*my_script*") there also doesn’t seem to be a link to the script.

Maybe some other helpful info:

  • Ubuntu 18.04 Server
  • Script file in /etc/init.d is owned by root like every file there

Thanks for any help!

Ubuntu 19.04 randonly freezes with weird startup

I’ve been having this weird issue with Ubuntu where the system would randomly freeze. The mouse stops responding and keyboard doesn’t respond etc… I’ve tried pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 and Ctrl+Alt+F2 and the system wouldn’t respond to that either. Any ideas on this problem? ALSO There’s been another weird problem I’ve been encountering every time I boot into Ubuntu, instead of the normal login GUI you’d expect I get a weird log thing that shows up. In order to exit that I usually press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and then Ctrl+Alt+F2 to exit. Here’s the link to the photos of this problem https://imgur.com/a/FZjtjA5.

My PC specs are: Intel i7-8700K | Nvidia RTX 2080 | 16GB G.Skill RAM | 300GB Storage for Ubuntu | 16GB of Swap area | Nvidia 430.40 Linux x64 Display Driver

Help is always appreciated!
