[15.04 64Bit]-Updated Intel Display Driver?

Hi,

I have an interesting problem with Xubuntu 15.04 64Bit
and Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro 64Bit
running in a VMWare Player 7.1.0 for Linux virtual machine.
(it's Linux native and Windows virtual)

Everything is good with the Xubuntu but I have graphic glitches in Win 
8.1 virtual machine.
I had to add: "mks.gl.allowBlacklistedDrivers = TRUE" to the *.VMX file
for hardware acceleration to work in Win 8.1 virtual machine.

jezxlee <at> ThinClient:~/Desktop$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core 
Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)

On Xubuntu 14.10 64Bit I just could install below and all graphic issues 
go away:
https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/2015/intelr-graphics-installer-linux-1.0.8
Problem is now I am on new 15.04 and it's not yet available on above 
website?

I did some research in Google and found below:
https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/ubuntu/graphics-drivers
Would installing above be ok and will solve my graphic issues with Win 
8.1 VM?

Thanks in advance!

Jesse

New Qemu and VirtualBox docs for Linux

Hi all,

I've just completed documents on running and modifying Linux on Qemu
and VirtualBox. There are many advantages, including convenience and
speed (on hardware with hardware VM assist), and not collecting a vast
pile of labeled hard disks for the various experiments. For XUbuntu
users, I'd imagine the most obvious use case is trying something new
without trying it on the computer you use every day. It takes
surprisingly little time to install Xubuntu on a Virtual Machine guest
of a host that has hardware VM assist.

It's also good for troubleshooting, because if you can reproduce the
symptom on a VM, then you can do diagnostic tests much faster, and if
something borks the machine, you can reset it back to a previous state
if you've been taking snapshots.

Here are the articles:

* http://troubleshooters.com/linux/diy/virtualbox.htm

* http://troubleshooters.com/linux/diy/qemu.htm

I hope you enjoy them.

make printer work

Good evening
I am sure, this is just some sort of setting.

I tried on a Mint 17 Cinnamon 64-bit installed on Dell Optiplex 745 desktop machine
AND a notebook PC running a variant (tuxtrans) of xubuntu 14.04
to add a printer (first time ever that I added a printer to any of my Linux machines).
>From menu: add printer.

* wait for the search for a driver
* followed all "recommended" choices for the Ricoh Ipsio SP 4000 printer I have.
* selected printer shows up with a green check mark in printer box.
* when select: "print test page", the screen temporarily shows
"printing" -> then "printing completed"
* HOWEVER, the printer "did not move a muscle".
* or when trying to print a LibreOffice document, the file name appears
together with the "printing"

Opening the view print queue shows briefly the job, status saying:
"sending data to printer", shortly after that: "finished".
No errors are ever displayed.

Yet, the printer does not do anything.
Running troubleshooting from within the printer setting shows "no solution".

The printer is connected via a USB cable and works just finem, when plugged into a Windows machine
sitting next the Linux machine, using the same cable.

  Where do I have to change what to make the printer work?

  Thank you.

"Not enough space on disk /boot"

Sounds like /boot may be full of cruft from updates of kernel. Not sure how to clean unless you can install Ubuntu tweak from command line and run it from there. Maybe boot to command line and use apt-get as suggested.
-+-+-+

Good evening
In more or less regular intervalls, when the computer tries to "update",
I get the following error message:

"Not enough free space.
The upgrade needs a total of 81.9 MB of free space on the disk /boot.
Please free at least an additional of 20.4 MB of space on the disk /boot.
Empty your trash and remove temporary packages of former installation using
sudo apt-get clean."

File manager shows:
/boot = total space = 248.8 MB
used space 169.5 MB = 75%

I did not set this myself. However, I do recall using "entire disk +
LVM" during setup and read somewhere, this might be problem.

What is this all about, and is there a way to make all this "automatic"?

Thank you.
Thomas

Blank or black screen or nothing on wake up after suspend (15.04)

Got the problem on 3 Asus laptops.

I need session to lock when closing the lid (which suspends) or going to
suspend.

X102BA, F102BA (same than X102BA) and X200MA.

2 firsts are AMD APU with AMD graphics (Xorg crashes many times) and 
X200MA is Intel Pentium with GMA graphics.

Thanks,

Laptop lid closing will not suspend with XUbuntu 15.04 Vivi

Hi,

My laptop had always been able to go to the suspend stage when its lid
is closed, but not any more with XUbuntu 15.04 Vivi.

I double checked the Xfce Power Mgr, which still says go to the
suspend stage when lid closes.

How to fix it? Any other things I can check?

Thanks

Display manager not fully visible

Hi,
when the display manager appears the shutdown button in the right upper 
corner is not visible. Why not?

Password Protect Dual Boot NTFS Partitions

Anyone?

----- Original message -----

<xubuntu-users@...>
Subject: [xubuntu-users] Password Protect Dual Boot NTFS Partitions
Date: Thu, 07 May 2015 13:27:26 -0700

Hi,

Using 14.04. I think back with 12.04 when you dual booted with Windows
by default the NTFS partitions would show on the desktop but you would
need admin password the access them, Now with 14.04 they don't need a
password.

I wanted to make it password protected like in 12.04.

How is this done? I tried manipulating fstab but it didn't work. How do
I do this? I want it to be on the desktop but need a password like in
12.04.

Thanks

desktop wallpaper disappeared

Good evening.
I am using (not really) xubuntu 14.04 on a notebook computer.
I had set up 2 workspaces with different wallpapers.

2-3 days ago, I opened the computer after a while (I did not do or
change anything) and noticed,
the wallpapers (both!) were gone.
AND, I CAN NOT set a new one.
How does something like this happen and how do fix it?

Update: completed today, but does not change anything.

Thank you.
Thomas

Seems to happen as well with screensaver only, so it might be screensaver-related.
