#StackBounty: #18.04 #system-installation #19.04 Problem installing Ubuntu 19.04 (18.04)

Bounty: 150

I’m new to Linux and Ubuntu in particular. Today I decided to try to switch to this system.

For a start I decided to install the latest available version 19.04. Filled it on a USB flash drive by means of unetbootin with the administrator rights. When the system is restarted and the beginning of the installation everything was fine, but in the first window select a window with the dial zero.

enter image description here
All the functionality of the window is frozen – no reboot, no cancel, nothing is possible. I tried to restart the installation – the same story. Then I tried the mode “Try Ubuntu without installation” and in the main window when I start the one of applications there was the same story. Then I went to the Internet to look for the problem – the solution in Google is not found, but I tried version 18.04 LTS. Same story. Tried to establish with HDD – the same. Tried other means to work with the flash drive (Universal USB Installer and YUMI) – the same story…

I am from Russia and initially asked for help on the Russian resource forum.ubuntu.ru where forum members suggested that the problem may be in the keyboard. But when experimenting with a different keyboard, disabling ehci-mode and completely disabling the keyboard in principle, everything remained the same. Please, help with the solution of this problem – it is necessary to install Ubuntu.

Motherboard – Asus P7P55D

UPDATE: Tried creation of a USB flash drive in Rufus, start in nomodeset mode-did not work. There is no Secure Boot mode in the Bios because there is no UEFI.
As a result, the problem is still relevant.

UPDATE: Disabled everything that is possible in the BIOS and tried version 16.04 with disabling all possible peripherals – everything is exactly the same … It turns out that it is incompatible with some equipment?

UPDATE: Tried ROSA, XUbuntu, Porteus in x64 and x32 versions and all the same history in different interpretations – there is a window in which zeros are printed. I do not know, maybe just both keyboards that have tried, do not want to work… Although I tried disconnecting the keyboard during the startup process.
In addition, when you run ROSA appeared here is the error message enter image description here, but then all started on.

#StackBounty: #18.04 #gnome-shell #xdotool Why is there a delay when typing certain characters with xdotool in 18.04?

Bounty: 50

Using xdotool type or xdotool key with certain characters makes Gnome Shell lock up. For example typing a single slash with xdotool type / or xdotool key slash takes a second or two, but for something like 23 slashes (i.e. xdotool type ///////////////////////) it’s more than 25 seconds.

Of all the printable ASCII characters, only these cause the problem:

  • slash /
  • backslash
  • bar |
  • bracketleft [
  • bracketright ]
  • braceleft {
  • braceright }

Outside ASCII, I’ve only tested çé°†, but they also cause the problem.

Why does this happen and how can I fix it?

More details

I never had this problem in Unity on 14.04.

There is a small delay when typing other characters, but only up to a second, even for long strings.

Any timing I’ve done in the terminal has come back normal, like time xdotool type ... or t=$SECONDS; xdotool ...; echo $((SECONDS-t)), so it seems to be a problem on Gnome Shell’s side.

I’ve confirmed $XDG_SESSION_TYPE is x11.

#StackBounty: #18.04 #gnome-shell #gnome-shell-extension #usability Center tray icons popup in Ubuntu 18.04

Bounty: 50

I’m using Dash to Panel to have my tray icons in the bottom-right corner of the screen, and there is something that bugs me off about the popup that the icons show when clicked.

It appears to the right of the icon, instead of being centered on it, so when I click the icon and then I try to click an option of the popup menu, it usually moves to the next icon popup, as shown in this snapshot:

enter image description here

Is there any way to center it?

#StackBounty: #google-chrome #remote-desktop #18.04 Can't advance beyond login screen with Chrome Remote Desktop in Ubuntu 18.04

Bounty: 50

Just downloaded and did a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04. I then installed Chrome Remote Desktop and Chrome 66, not Chromium.

I’m able to login to the machine remotely – when I type my user password, it takes the password but nothing happens. It doesn’t reject the password, it just clears the field and does nothing. When I type in an incorrect password (just to see what it would do), it rejects it (which is what I would expect to happen).

I know Ubuntu switched back to X display manager for 18.04 – is there something else I need to configure?
