Corrupted screen (Error flashed to resize screen)

By Nikhil Tari

I am trying to install ubuntu 16.04 from a DVD (burned correctly). I am facing an error of screen resize with my entire screen getting corrupted and a message box moving around the screen. I tried installing Ubuntu from same DVD on other machines it worked quite well. The PC with which I am facing that problem is 64 bit operating system with i5 4th generation and no external graphic memory installed on it.

How to change the tile arrows on Unity Launcher?

By Logan

enter image description here

I have installed various themes on my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. My favourite is the flatabulous theme and the ultra-flat icon theme.

One more thing I wanted to do is, change the small arrows that indicate which apps are open and how many instances are open, to more visible circles or some thing else.. I tried many themes but was unable to change that.

If I am not wrong, these are located at /usr/share/unity/themes.

Are there any openly available icons which can be used to replace them?

Can suspend only after rfkill block all

By dummy@example.com (lumeno)

I am running Gnome3/GDM. If I do:

$ systemctl suspend

the screen goes blank, I hear the hard disk make a click sound, and then I’m back on the GDM login view. Nothing useful shows up in dmesg or journalctl between sleeping and waking.

After trying many things, I found that the following works:

$ rfkill block all
$ systemctl suspend

which causes the computer to go to sleep. I cannot wake it up with my (wireless) keyboard or mouse, but I can by pressing the power button. Very strangely, blocking either or both of the only devices listed by rfkill does NOT allow me to suspend

$ rfkill list
1: phy0: Wireless LAN
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: no
20: hci0: Bluetooth
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: no
$ rfkill block 1
$ systemctl suspend # doesn't work
$ rfkill unblock 1
$ rfkill block 19
$ systemctl suspend # doesn't work
$ rfkill block 1
$ systemctl suspend # doesn't work
$ rfkill block all
$ systemctl suspend # works!

Only the ‘block all’ command works. But isn’t ‘block all’ equivalent to blocking both?

And why do I have to block all to get suspend to work?

W: Failed to fetch Mongo 3.2 file

By darshan krishnaiah

I am trying to install Mongodb on my remote scaleway server. I am following the steps given in Mongodb official document.

Although i had installed on other remote servers using the same link, i am unable to install on my remote scaleway server. The moment i add the key and list file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d, I am getting the following error:

W: Failed to fetch http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu/dists/trusty/mongodb-org/3.2/Release  Unable to find expected entry 'multiverse/binary-armhf/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead. 

How to deal with this?

New problem on change from 12.04 to 14.04 can no longer read cpu temps have tried a lot of different fixes

By DEH

New problem on change from 12.04 to 14.04 can no longer read CPU temps. I have tried a lot of different fixes listed on sites but none have worked.

What bugs me is I had this all working once used info from here http://www.webupd8.org/2016/09/how-to-install-avant-window-navigator.html to get it working in AWN. But updating broke function.

For some reason its stopped working everywhere and I can’t get i back no matter what I try. I even tried the newest unstable Psensors figuring it mite be some AWN bug since its not really supported anymore but no luck with CPU temps there either. Psensors reads other things but not CPU temps. Psensors reads Nvidia video card temps but doesn’t seem to be right as it always reads 46c. I tried reinstalling/installing lm-sensors, ACPI, etc. I’m using an Intel motherboard with a core 2 duo if that give any ideas.

Ubuntu wont dualboot with windows 7

By quinn623

I am currently running windows 7 pro. I made a boot disk of ubuntu 16.04.01 and when I first tried to boot into ubuntu I was able to get to the grub menu and select install ubuntu. Everything went fine except when I actually got into ubuntu to finish the install, my keyboard and mouse did not work. I googled a solution to this problem and found to change some of my settings in my BIOS. After I found these setting changes I restarted my computer and went in and changed them. Now when I try to boot the install disk I can still get into grub of and select install ubuntu but after that I just get a black screen and code scrolling down the screen about something with nouveua in the line all the lines of code are the same except for a 6 digit number at the beginning that changes with every line. I thought letting it sit there it would run through everything but that did not work either, I even left it over night. If anyone knows how to fix this that would be awesome.
I am running GIGABYTE GA-970A-DSP3
