  • Issue#222910: Linux - Ubuntu on VM Virtual Box - Wifi Issue - Toshiba L850

    Howdy guys, I'm playing around with Ubuntu 14 and I've put it in a Virtual Box and it doesn't seem to recognize my Wifi network. Yes I've turned on Wifi laptop. I'm using wifi for windows, can both virtual and windows run the same wifi card? I have a Toshiba L850 running Windows 7, Virtual Box 5.0.4. Ubuntu and Wifi works fine under a dual boot situation but I decided to step things up because I wanted to play in the mine fields and I figured Virtual Box would be an easy way to recover if I screwed up. Ubuntu is pretty easy (first time linux user) and a trained monkey could run it, seems I've given my trained monkey the week off and now I have this issue. Hints or thoughts on what I might try.

Since i dont know how much resource i need now or later on my system and it should be able to scale, i thought on putting the Swap on a separate virtual disc.

  • Issue#1185066: Linux - Ubuntu Display Resolution Issue

    I am newbie to the ubuntu world. And now I have problem in the display resolution. I am sure that the display card works fine as that did so when the ubuntu was installed. But later I made some mistakes by typing some unknown codes (my big fault) in the terminal, which has made my display resolution limited to the current "800x600". And when I typed the xrandr command, the following codes are shown: xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default Screen 0: minimum 800 x 600, current 800 x 600, maximum 800 x 600 default connected primary 800x600+0+0 0mm x 0mm 800x600 75.00* The unknown coded I typed: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gma500/emgd sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install xorg-emgd emgd-dkms emgd-xorg-conf sudo emgd-xorg-conf (*that command wasn't run successfully in my computer though*) What should I do to fix that issue?

  • Issue#2164: Ubuntu - VPN issue (Astrill)

    So weird issue here... Trying out Kubuntu for the first time (15.04) and as I live in China I need a VPN to access, well, anything useful. Astrill works fine at first, went to their site, downloaded the deb and installed it and it works fine except for one thing: It only works with the account I was using when I installed it. I installed it using my Admin account, and then switched to a regular user account, no luck. If I launch it, the icon bounces like it's launching and then nothing. I tried launching it with a second admin account..same thing. If I reinstall it in the second account, it launches but then the original account cannot use it. So basically, any time I wish to switch accounts I need to reinstall the package? That's weird. Anyone heard of anything like this before? FWIW, I have had similar issues with various codecs. Video plays fine, but only for the account that I used to install the media player with. (mainly for SMplayer) Help?

    I attempted to install an OTA upgrade from 15.04 to 15.10. It failed and for some reason I lost my wifi connection with 15.04 (after the upgrade was rejected it reverted back to the previous install) I had a previous downloaded full version of 15.10 on DVD so I attempted a clean install The DVD won't boot. I had a previous 14.04 DVD and after connecting with an ethernet cable I have installed 14.04, it works fine but I can't upgrade. I purchased Ubuntu User magazine with a new 15.10 DVD and attempted a fresh install. It won't boot on the 64-bit side and goes into error's on the 32-bit side. I have taken a photo of the screen where the install stops hoping someone can decipher what is going wrong. If it's a hardware problem why does 14.04 install and run OK? If it's software where do I start to look? (rootkit?)

    I just installed Casper onto a Lenovo Flex 3 running Win 10. BUT IT DID THE SQUEEZE SO GRUB/UBUNTU IS A MIDDLE PARTITION. So the boot process can't find GRUB(2). It still goes to UEFI. And that only knows about win10.Can I install grub or lilo at the beginning somehow? Can I put grub onto a thumbdrive with a link to ubuntu-in-the-middle? Can I cause UEFI to find Casper? Should I delete the ubuntu install and start over forcing (somehow) the installer to put ubuntu at the beginning? But shouldn't the installer have modified the MBR so it points to the GRUB partition (in the middle)? I thank any/all respondents in advance for your help.
