Please check /etc/grub.d/, there should be a file there for the theme. Mine is called /etc/grub.d/05_debian_theme - I am on Debian, but grub is grub. In this file, I have the following: . /usr/share/desktop-base/grub_background.sh In this second file, I can set WALLPAPER to the image I want and update grub2 (sudo update-grub2). I assume you have grub2.

The best thing I ever did was remove grub and go back to lilo. On older machines still using MBR, and nothing fancy, lilo is so much easier to understand and never does anything strange.

You have to download in other machine a live distro (if you have 64bit , download 64 and if you have 32bit download 32 bit), Then step by step do the following steps: Boot with your live cd create a dir mount your old linux on your dir chroot dir Now , you have old linux and you can change password, and manipulate grub and run grub-install

This is probably a bug, similar or identical to this one (Super-P mapped for display in BIOS), only that on my laptop the display button is not Fn-F8, but F4. What I do not like is not that the command for switching displays (XF68Display) matches also the "p" key, but that it matches Super-P: I want Super to be reserved for Menu Search ...

I don't know if this will help but this is the setup that I am now working on LIVE at this Moment..!!!!! I have a Gigabyte E1500 Laptop with Wireless Capability.

It is perfectly okay to have a system without that file. Which is why it can't be found on any bare bones system. That file is copied from /etc/skel into the new user's home folder upon user creation and it will be in the home folder because of that fact or because someone put it there manually. The reason you'd want to have a .bashrc (or .bash_profile or ...

Usual warnings of root login is dangerous, do not use unless you are expert. Linux Mint Rebecca 17.1 uses nemo desktop as do others. root login text has been moved to: /usr/share/mdm/defaults.conf line 185. those who don't know how, this is what to do. Open Terminal and type sudo passwd root you will be prompted for a new root password. Next type, sudo ...

~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, and ~/.profile all appear to be read at login, but based on another question, they don't appear to be able to run xmodmap reliably. Although it's maddening, the only way I've been able to resolve this is to add a script as a start up item. Xmodmap on bashrc not working ...

From the output, the links are all to ~/third-party-source/openssl/crypto. So either navigate there from the GUI, or with the command line cp, use --dereference: -L, --dereference always follow symbolic links in SOURCE Like so: cp -L ~/third-party-source/openssl/include/openssl/* /some/where/else

I had found this link: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo#Remove_Password_Prompt_For_sudo I don't know if that can help you (I don't have mint). Good luck.

Did you try this with different boot versions of the Petra installer? I used both Gnome version and LTE when I was having a similar issue booting over network/USB. I thought for sure it was a script going wrong somewhere and wasted countless hours on it. I later discovered it was a hardware controller malfunction by running Sandra diagnostics. If you run the ...

The code would vary depending on the details, but the general approach would be: Log in to the web site (?)

It might be possible using pdftotext: $ pdftotext -layout transaction.pdf - | grep -C1 amount 19876.0 amount paid The program is part of the poppler-utils package, which can be installed using: sudo apt-get install poppler-utils The -layout option is used to make pdftotext adhere to the PDF layout as closely as it can (otherwise the ...

RSS isn't so easy as it used to be. I suggest you use Liferea to add and update the feeds - as they update, you'll get notifications. Conky can show what feeds are available, but you can't 'click and go' there unless the feed goes to notifications. This is something that should, really, be a fundamental applet (part of messaging) for KDE or (in my case) ...

That was not enough. For some weird reason Mint added a user by default to the nopasswdlogin group and no mater how long you play with the settings above, that user will be challenge for password. Solution. Got to User manager and remove that user from the nowpasswdlogin group.

I encountered the same problem. The best reply I can offer is to get an Ethernet cable and directly connect to the access point. However, this is only a workaround. It's possibly a bug in Ubuntu, after updating Ubuntu to the newest update of 14.04, the issue seems to be gone.

Based on @Hauke Laging's comment. When you run strace on the sshd binary it outputs debugging information on how the program starts and what files it tries to access. From which we can use grep to list the /etc/ files which it tries to access. $ sudo strace -e trace=file /usr/sbin/sshd |& grep '^open('|grep '/etc/' open("/etc/ld.so.cache", O_RDONLY) ...

Have landed up in a similar problem.. Although, I just figured out you can get to the grub screen by holding down the Shift key while boot-process and then press C to enter the grub command console I also figured out you can get to the login screen by pressing - Ctrl+Alt+F2 while boot up!

We need to see what package depends on those packages. To do so, issue: sudo apt-cache rdepends libavcodec54 sudo apt-cache rdepends libavdevice53 sudo apt-cache rdepends libavformat54 My hunch is vlc. If that is the case, issue: sudo apt-get purge vlc then try upgrading then reinstall vlc

Using a boot option like nomodeset could get it working, though I'm not sure if it would be in the best graphics mode. Give it, and some other boot options a try, like nomodeset, noacpi, noapic, nolapic, etc...? The Ubuntu live iso has some listed under it's F6 "Other Options" menu. Linux Mint is either similar, or should let you edit the options with TAB ...

Try dropping your system into single-user mode To do this (I'm going to assume you're using GRUB, instructions are similar for other bootloaders), hold shift during bootup. Select the default entry and modify it. Append single to the end of the boot options When the system boots up, it should drop you into a fully functional terminal Alternatively, if ...

Regarding your second option, of creating a VMWare image... yes you certainly can. It is called a P2V (Physical to Virtual) migration, and you can do a hot clone, rather than a cold clone. First, you need to put the original Windows 8 disk back into the machine. Boot it up. Connect an external usb disk large enough to hold the Windows 8 installation, to ...

To list all of your installed packages which match 'cups', run dpkg -l | grep cups Then just remove them with apt-get remove. Even after that, there could be some cups processes running. A simple reboot will eliminate them (an alternative would be to manually kill them).

For persistence to work you'll need the two parameters (persistent and casper-rw) that are indicated here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/168246/why-isnt-persistence-working-on-lubuntu-12-04-live-usb/568557#568557 As for the Data partition, if it comes second [1] you'll need to swap the partitions number for Windows to let you have access to it.

It doesn't appear to be a permissions thing as you said it is at least editing the resolv.conf file to start with. I would initially rule out all of the stuff related to OS level functions purely based on this. I know you mentioned that your domain is proper in pfsense, but in what context? On your pfsense, Go to OpenVPN Server --> Client Settings --> DNS ...

If you're planning to dual-boot with windows 8 you should see this question on askubuntu.com with peculiarities about pre-installed windows 8 & UEFI, has pages of instructions & tips.

Seems you can also fix both abovementioned issues via an entry to /etc/fstab to explicitly mount the shared folder, after disabling automatic mounting via virtualbox. You need to pay attention to load the vboxsf kernel module early enough, and you should also mark it as "remote" filesystem for systemd, e.g. with the _netdev ( and probably also with nofail ...

Why not simply extract that to your home folder into ~/.themes directory?

I found the solution after reading https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Uniform_Look_for_Qt_and_GTK_Applications: Qt5 decides the style to use based on what desktop environment is used. If it doesn't recognize the desktop environment, it falls back to a generic style. To force a specific style, you can set the QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE environment variable. ...

What happened? So I spent some time looking into this and I am fairly sure that this is caused by a kernel bug. The bug is triggered by the fact that you have an NTFS filesystem on the root of the disk (ie the filesystem begins right at the start of the disk). Usually the root of the disk will contain a partition tables and the filesystem(s) would be within ...

@Giles The only potential culprit I see in your configuration is pam_ldap, if LDAP is misconfigured somehow. Yep, commenting it out solved the problem.

I used to run Mint, and I had that sort of problem quite often. Then I 'downgraded' to plain Debian, and it hasn't happened even once. And I've yet to figure out what it is that I'm supposta be going without by running plain Debian vs. the supposedly hotter, latestgreatest Mint.
