Which app complaining about login keyring?

Recently on 15.04 (standard Ubuntu) I have started getting the popup
message "Enter password to unlock your keyring, the login keyring did
not get unlocked when you logged into your computer".  Anyone know how
to find out which app is requesting the keyring?  I want to find why
it has only started happening recently as I have not changed my login
credentials.

It is not Gnome keyring GPG Password Agent or SSH Key Agent as I have
disabled those in Startup Applications.

virt-manager

Does anyone know why the version of virt-manager in vivid and wily is
still at 1.0.1? This version was released on 2014-03-22, and there have
been three releases since. The first of these should have been out in
time to make it into vivid, and AFAIK even the latest was before the
wily freeze.

Also, has anyone tried to do a manual upgrade from the sources
available at virt-manager.org on vivid? I'm wondering if there is a
specific reason that we are still at 1.0.1, and if an upgrade to 1.2.1
could/would break something?

Automount for flash drives now failing in 14.04

I am running the following:

3.13.0-57-generic #95-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 19 09:28:15 UTC 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=14.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=trusty
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS"

(actually Xubuntu...).

Two days ago, I noticed that when I insert my flash drives, they are
no longer automounted.

I thought it might be a boot problem, but I have rebooted a few times
since then for other reasons, and it still fails.

In order to get the system to recognize the drives as they are
normally mounted, I have to run Thunar and select the drive, then
everything works as I'd expect.

Here's what it looks like before I insert the drive:

Sound stopped working on both 14.04 and 15.04

I have a laptop running Xubuntu 15.04 and a desktop running 14.04.  Once in a while, I don my earbuds to listen to something.  It used to work, but no longer does on either machine when running these distros.  Booting into Windows (resp Win 10 and Win 7) sound works, so I don't suspect any hardware failure.

Doing the lowest-level test I know how to do, I used mpg123 to turn an .mp3 into a .wav, and tried to play it with aplay.  It reports it's working, but no sound comes out.  I've fooled with volume controls and such to no avail.  The same .wav plays fine in Windows with a simple double-click.

I use sound on Linux so seldom I can't really say when it stopped working, but it was within the last 2 months.  I really don't fool with it, so I don't think I blundered it away.

I'm pretty clueless about sound software, so at this point I'm stuck.  HELP!!

Re: Btrfs on top of LVM?

Be sure to have enough mem
I found that for every btrfs-mount, i got some extra processes
Currently i have over 60 btrfs-mounts, all on their own LVM

suspend does not wake up anymore

Hi there,
for a couple of days now, my dell XPS does not wake up when it entered suspend mode.
This is very cumbersome ..

It worked up to some days ago (with only inor glitches).
I did only install upgrades with apt get lately.

Any idea how to fix that?
thanks robert

Reading from a Bluetooth device

Thank you for reading this.

I'm attempting to read from a HC-05 device connected to an Arduino.

I've used hcitool scan to find the mac address and entered that into 
/etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf.

To pair I've run the following:

bluetooth-agent --adapter hci0 1234&

Which results in the following:

Can't register agent
Already Exists

So I now try to connect to HC-05:

sudo rfcomm connect 0&

syntax error line 7
syntax error line 7
syntax error line 11
syntax error line 11
syntax error line 11
syntax error line 14
syntax error line 14
syntax error line 14
syntax error line 18
syntax error line 18
syntax error line 18
Can't find a config entry for rfcomm0

Those lines are the lines that I uncommented in /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.config

I think /dev/rfcomm should have been created but it hasn't.

I've read through several How-Tos on the subject which are all basically 
the same.

I must be missing something obvious. Can anyone see what it might be?

Btrfs on top of LVM?

Has anyone here used btrfs on top of LVM? Are there any problems or
gotchas I should be aware of?

I want to use a logical volume to receive a btrfs subvolume and
incremental snapshots to test it out as a possible backup solution for
a smallish (500GB) filesystem that has a fair amount of changes in a
day.

Ideally I would use a separate disk, but right now I need to do this on
top of an LV if possible. Performance is not an issue. And no, this
will not be my only backup :)

Any advice and experiences would be welcome.

Nemo Hangs While Accessing a Specific Folder

Hello All,

A friend of mine is running Ubuntu 14.04 on her laptop and installed Nemo as the default file manager.

After a few times the laptop shut down due to overheating, she can't access her Downloads folderin Nemo. Every time she tries, Nemo hangs forever (goes dark) until killed.

Other folders are OK. Nautilus opens the same Downloads folder in a snap...

I ran "fix all file systems" from the recovery mode twice, and it did not resolve the issue.

Is there a way to reset Nemo, delete the cache or some other way?

Thanks!

Amichai.

ATI FirePro 2450 card and ubuntu 14.04

Sir/Madam

I currently have installed an  ATI FirePro 2450 card into a machine 
running Ubuntu 14.04

However it appears that only 3 of the 4 outputs are active.

I believe that Ubuntu 14.04 is currently utilizing the default  nouveau 
drivers

When I tried to install the ATI drivers all I received where blank screens.

Does anyone have experience of getting all four ports on the 2450 
working (with 14.04) ?

Or can anyone recommend a 4 port graphic card that does work with 14.04

Thanking you
