DVD iso burning 8X?

Since I bought a new PC a couple of years ago I haven't been able to burn isos 
and get the correct md5sum. Using both Brasero and k3b the min speed this drive 
can do is 8X. Every time I burn an iso it fails the md5sum. I tried DVD-RW 4X 
discs and that worked - but when I blank the disk and try to burn another it 
fails. It seems I have a poor DVD drive - are these modern SATA drives only 
capable of 8X. It plays DVD videos fine and seems to be ok otherwise.

I understood that the bigger the iso the more likely a burn is to fail. How 
reliable is burning a DVD?

My old PC only had a CD writer/DVD reader drive bought in 2005 - it's been 
faultless burning CD isos and I have only ever used 4X (it's minimum speed). 
Maybe it's old but never failed to produce a copy.

This newer PC DVD drive it would seem is poor at 'writing'. I'd be grateful if 
someone could let me know if they've had problems burning DVDs at 8X - were CD 
writers more reliable? I have always burnt an iso for each release install as I 
don't like USB sticks... perhaps that's what most folk use now.

thanks

Login prompt

When I was using Xubuntu 12.04, the login prompt forgot almost
immediately that I should be the default login name, but it always
just asked me for the userid to log in.

In 1404, it also forgot immediately that I should be the default user,
but now it automatically shows the Guest Session and I have to click
the down arrow to get an Other session.

Yet another anomaly in 14.04 that is really annoying....

How do I rectify this?

Thanks.

Network Canon Pixma MG6350

I have “installed”  the MG6350 both manually and via the auto “Add Printer”.  The printer clearly receives a print command and tries to process it, but ultimately all I get is a beep, the printer resets and Xubuntu is waiting for the job to complete – nothing happens.  I have other machines running Ubuntu, Debian and Mint – they all print to the same machine perfectly.  I have tried the driver used for those installations and a fresh download – still no success.  I did get a reference to libtiff4 not being installed, both before and after (!) installing it.   Help?

Interesting scanner problem

Hope somebody around here knows about this, even though it's not
strictly xubuntu:
I have a Canon PIXMA MX410 and the scanner works great with xsane and
the sane backend.
I tried to use Simple-Scan, which supposedly is just a frontend for sane
but, surprise, surprise, my scanner didn't show up.
Any ideas?

(no subject)

Hello guys!

I have been using Xubuntu some years. I have some knowledge about Linux but not advanced user. I have a problem. I have tried to Google but couldn't find any solution. The thing is I have English and Mongolian keyboard layouts. I use Alt-Shift to change them. But when i install ibus-anthy I can't change my layouts. I can switch between English (added in ibus input method) and Japanese. But when I use alt-shift after switching to English or Japanese it doesn't work. I use English, Japanese and Mongolian keyboard. Can some one help me. I found it on Ubuntu 14.04 too. Is it bug or wrong configuration. 

Thank you

"Other" menu disappeared

I was enabling more items in some of the menus via the menu editor
from the system settings window, and the "Other" menu is now
invisible.  The "Hide from other menus" flag is off, so it should be
visible, right?

WTF?

14.04 is beginning to show enough problems I'm considering going back
to 12.04, which had none of these....

Another problem with 14.04 - printers

I just configured my printer, a USB Brother HL-2240D, to be the system
default, but for some reason the printer settings window can't seem to
get a test page printed.  lpstat -t shows that the system is "Sending
data to the printer" but nothing ever prints:

$ lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: Brother-HL-2240D-series
device for Brother-HL-2240D-series:
usb://Brother/HL-2240D%20series?serial=G1N406058
Brother-HL-2240D-series accepting requests since Mon 25 Aug 2014 12:53:05 AM PDT
printer Brother-HL-2240D-series is idle.  enabled since Mon 25 Aug
2014 12:53:05 AM PDT
Sending data to printer.

CUPS can't make any progress with it either.

/var/log/cups/error_log shows this:

E [25/Aug/2014:00:44:26 -0700] Brother-HL-2240D-series: File

org.freedesktop.ColorManager.AlreadyExists:profile id

I fixed the missing file problem, but it still won't print.  I'm not
sure what the last three lines mean.

I need to be able to print with this thing, and my other printer
(which I rarely even turn on, but still...).

What am I missing?

Thanks.

Xubuntu 14.04 loses encrypted password input window focus with LO 4.2.6

I recently installed Xubuntu 14.04 on my home desktop since I have
been using it at work for about 3 weeks and all has gone relatively
well there.

However, when I open an encrypted .odt document using the command line
or a shell script, the focus shifts to the password input box for a
fraction of a section and immediately reverts to the starting terminal
window.

This is annoying in part because when I type in the password, it shows
up in the terminal window, which is a huge no-no for security, and in
part because I have to manually shift the focus back to the password
input window.

This should not happen - the password window should grab the focus and
hold it until the password is input.

This does not happen if I start LO directly or through a keyboard
shortcut and then enter the file to open.

Whose bug is it - LO pr Xubuntu?  I don't know how to tell.

Thanks.

slow start

Hi,
Xubuntu 14.04 starts very, very, very slowly. I get messages like

Stopping Read required files in advance (for other mountpoints)

Why is it so slow?

Panel being difficult

I just upgraded (via reinstall) my home desktop to Trusty (14.04.1),
and the panel is being difficult.

I run it with a dark background, so I need the items to show up with
white foreground and dark background.  Instead, the clock only shows
the foreground, which is black and thus illegible, and the workspace
switchers and the CPU graphs are all with a background so light I
can't read anything in them.

Isn't there a way to configure the panel items for dark backgrounds?
This wasn't a problem in Precise (12.04).

Thanks.
