#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: #keyboard #19.04 #msi MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RE less than symbol printing ç symbol

Bounty: 50

In Ubuntu 18.04 the keyboard worked very nicely. I selected either the “Spanish (Spain)” or “Catalan (Spain, L with dot)” and every key was fine. Even the less-than and great-than symbols, which for this laptop, the key is between the SPACE BAR and the ALT-GR keys.

However, after installing from zero (not updating) the Ubuntu 19.04, the less-than and great-than symbols aren’t working. They display the รง and ร‡ symbols whey I press them.

I have been searching around but haven’t really found anything that seems to help.

If someone can help, would be lovely! It’s awful not being able to code without these symbols ๐Ÿ™

#StackBounty: #networking #drivers #network-manager #ethernet #19.04 RTL8812AU Failing While Attempting Hotspot Setup

Bounty: 50

Fresh install of 19.04, running alongside an installation of Windows 10 (different drives). I have an ethernet cable coming into my onboard port, which I use for my main connection. I also have the ANEWKODI wireless adapter plugged in. This device does not natively support Linux, so the drivers I am using are installed following this guide.

After installing a new driver, iw list lists my device, but I am no longer able to view available networks

enter image description here

My goal is to – using the ethernet as a source, create a hotspot using the wifi dongle.

Running lshw -c network yields this.

iw list returns this

Trying to start the hostapd service also shoots an error:

Sep 20 19:40:56 david systemd[1]: Failed to start Advanced IEEE 802.11 AP and IE
-- Subject: A start job for unit hostapd.service has failed
-- Defined-By: systemd

What I’ve tried so far:

I’ve followed the steps listed here, which recommended manually starting the network-manager process, here, which said to disable fast boot from Windows, and here, which was a reinstall of network-manager, none of which worked.

#StackBounty: #lubuntu #kubuntu #19.04 #desktop-environments #19.10 How to get Ubuntu-desktop back after once removing it completely

Bounty: 50

I have tried to experiment with different desktop environments. I completely removed Ubuntu-desktop-environment and installed Kubuntu-desktop. Then after some days I installed Lubuntu-dektop.

Now, I want to get back to my Ubuntu-desktop. How to do it?

Thanks.

Update:
I have done the following:

sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop

sudo apt-get install gnome-shell

And as a result I have got many options to login with. But When I choose Ubuntu after reconfiguring into lightdm it says insufficient memory.

I also tried reconfiguring to gdm and after reboot it does not show previous users but shows a welcome screen to create a new user. After I make a new user, I login just to get a black screen.

#StackBounty: #networking #drivers #network-manager #ethernet #19.04 Activation of network connection failed – hotspot

Bounty: 50

Fresh install of 19.04, running alongside an installation of Windows 10 (different drives). I have an ethernet cable coming into my onboard port, which I use for my main connection. I also have the ANEWKODI wireless adapter plugged in. This device does not natively support Linux, so the drivers I am using are installed following this guide.

The wifi adapter can connect to networks:

enter image description here

And that stays connected.

My goal is to – using the ethernet as a source, create a hotspot using the wifi dongle. It is failing. I am going into settings, navigating to “Wifi,” clicking the three dots, and clicking “Turn On Wi-Fi Hotspot.” Nothing happens. When I say nothing, I mean nothing. The hotspot feature built into Windows 10 functions correctly, so hardware is not the issue.

Running lshw -c network yields this.

What I’ve tried so far:

I’ve followed the steps listed here, which recommended manually starting the network-manager process, here, which said to disable fast boot from Windows, and here, which was a reinstall of network-manager, none of which worked.

In the mentioned folder there is no appsrv.ini but an appsrv.template. Anyone knows whats the problem here?

#StackBounty: #nvidia #display #hdmi #19.04 #gdm Slow switching between Users / TTY using HDMI

Bounty: 100

Switching to another already logged in user (Ctrl+Alt+F#) takes a long time (approx. 10 – 20 seconds).

First, the screen turns black, after some seconds the cursor appears, and then after some time the desktop appears. Sometimes the icons and text is scrambled which can be fixed by resetting Gnome (running r from Alt+F2).

How can I eliminate this annoying waiting time ??


I have Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 TI with current nvidia driver from standard repos.

Same setup using VGA cable works fine, it is the same issue for different monitors (one is Full HD and one is 4K).

I found a similar question, but it is very old and has a different setup and it has no suitable answers.

#StackBounty: #sound #pulseaudio #alsa #19.04 No sound from analog output after upgrade to Ubuntu 19.04

Bounty: 100

So I’ve just updated to 19.04 and my integrated sound card stopped providing the analog output sink, here’s pactl output:

~ $ pactl list short sinks
0   alsa_output.usb-Logitech_Logitech_Wireless_Headset_000D443A6F5C-00.analog-stereo    module-alsa-card.cs16le 2ch 48000Hz RUNNING
1   alsa_output.pci-0000_20_00.1.hdmi-stereo-extra2 module-alsa-card.c  s16le 2ch 44100Hz   SUSPENDED
2   alsa_output.pci-0000_20_00.1.hdmi-stereo-extra2.2   module-alsa-card.c  s16le 2ch 44100Hz   RUNNING
3   alsa_output.pci-0000_20_00.1.hdmi-stereo-extra2.3   module-alsa-card.c  s16le 2ch 44100Hz   SUSPENDED

I can still get the sound played on those sinks, but it’s either wireless headphones or my monitor speakers, which are crap.

At some point I managed to get back the analog sink back, I think by re-installing alsa, but after reboot it disappeared. Running acmd unload-module module-udev-detect && pacmd load-module module-udev-detect doesn’t seem to help either.

Any ideas?

#StackBounty: #gnome #19.04 #dialog Brief freeze in Gnome dialogs in 19.04

Bounty: 50

After upgrading to Ubuntu 19.04, I have noticed a visible freeze of a couple of seconds whenever I click a button of a Gnome dialog window. One case when it appears is the screen unlock window, but even the “open file” dialog in most applications gives the same behaviour.

Journalctl displays some error messages that appear to be related [EDIT: the messages were a red herring apparently; they do not appear at the same time as the bug happens.]

Any ideas as to what could be causing it? Is it a known problem? Any experiment
