Question regarding etherwake

Howdy folks,

I am using etherwake to wake up one of the lan machines. To do so I have
set up a script to do that at the same time every day and until recently
this worked fine.

The machine that runs this script has 2 nics (eth0 and eth1) and because
eth0 didn't work flawlessly when changing my router I plugged the cable
into eth1. Now the script doesn't wake up the other machine anymore.
Wake-On-Lan still works on the other machine (as I can do so from the
router), so I was wondering if etherwake has to be configured to use a
certain nic.

If so ... how?

Laptop not detecting bootable USB stick

I am trying to install ubuntu server 14.04.1 on my laptop... I 
downloaded the 64bit version off ubuntu.com, checked the checksums(all 
matched) and used disk-destroyer to copy it on a usb stick (dd 
if=/dev/drive of=/path/to/iso). However when I tried to boot from my 
laptop it just failed saying that no bootable devices have been found. I 
tried rewriting it using disk-destroyer but same result. Got any ideas 
what is happening?

Web cam

I just hooked up my Play Station web cam and it works in Ubuntu, not windows.
I have tested it in Skype and get a great picture. What I would like to know;
what is a good program to record video from a web cam in Ububtu?

Upgrade to 14.10 from 14.04 LTS

The upgrade to 14.10 totally borked my system up. After it was finished
and I rebooted I could not even log in. It kept telling me my password
was incorrect. I reinstalled 14.04 LTS from the DVD and still could not
log in. I did an 2nd reinstall which totally wiped out the partitions
and went in as a new install. Please don't ask what the errors were as
[1]they went by too fast and [2]I could not find the install log.
Luckily my system is backed up with rsync every morning at 2:30am so I
only lost mail from yesterday. Did anyone else experience this or am I,
as usual, the only one who had problems?

Multiple screens on Ubuntu 14.10

Is anyone else using multiple screens and suspend on 14.10 (about to
be released)?  If I have a number of windows open and then suspend and
resume, some of the windows (apparently randomly) move to a different
workspace.  I have reported it [1] but it seems not to have been
reported by others.  I am using intel 4000 graphics on Unity.

problems with wireless

 My wireless connection works flawless for some time and then I am unable
to get anywhere on the internet.

If I disable wireless connections in network manager, all is well at least for some time.

My other computer running Bodhi runs much more reliably.

 tried the solution here


Sometimes the internet is blazing fast and a second later I can not load gmail.  SOmetimes it is great for hours on end.  Often if I disconnect wifi and reconnect is (even if immediately) it is usually much faster after that, for a while.   I am pretty certain that at times the problem is with the ISP as both computers are effected at the same time.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

deluge

I can not get deluge bit torrent to install right.
When Installed it will only run through  sudo
command. I had it running on it's own before.
I had to reinstall Ubuntu. Anyone have any
ideas? I don't want to do another reinstall.

switch KB layout

Good evening
I gave up trying to rescue the system after the VB / VM insanity.

Now, I just made a clean new install (xubuntu 14.04 = tuxtrans)
Ran Software Update (probably successfully)
Language support update ->
* deleted Spanish + Italian which I do not need
* added Japanese + German

Keyboard Layout:
Deleted English, Spanish, Italian
Added Japanese, German (Querty)
* Switch with "Shift + Alt"

Ibus setup (had trouble, as usual, making that "Anthy" thing appear)
Finally succeeded, somehow.
Input method: I set it to a key in the left upper corner of the keyboard
called here "Zenkaku"
(deleted the preset: "control+space"

PROBLEM:
Fresh start of computer or new login:
* Shift + Alt switches between Japanese and German KB layouts.
* HOWEVER, if I just touch the input method, either by clicking the icon
or using that "Zenkaku" key ...

The switch between KB layouts is disabled (although the KB layouts are
still listed) and will not work until I login anew.

As I said, this is a clean new install, where I touch ONLY a few items
under language support and keyboard layout.
I cannot have made SO MUCH wrong or upset this extremely delicate system.
So, what precisely is happening here?
Is is really asking too much being able to switch between two KB layouts?

I appreciate any help.
(unfortunately I am sure, I will have more problems with each following
step of the new setup and keep asking questions ...)

Thomas
