Error message on startup

Xubuntu 14.10 - clean install using Disk encryption with LVM

On boot up the Crypt_sda5 is mounted correctly, but then I get this:
Error mounti9ng 2: Press S to skip or M for manual repair

I press "S" and everything boots normally.
My question is, what is "2" and how do I correct this?

Cheers

Gordon

Link between Firefox and Thunderbird.

Hello,

running Xubuntu 14.04 LTS, 64-bit on AMD.

This morning the system did a routine upgrade, after which it asks to 
reboot, I clicked yes, it did and from then on, when I click on a link 
in a Thunderbird email, it does open new instances of Firefox every time 
and it does open it on the Welcome page, NOT the page the link is 
supposed to lead to??

Any idea?

Thanks,

Gérald

Custom Applications Menu launcher Icon filename saved without extension

Greetings,

Xubuntu 14.04 x64

I am off building custom Applications Menu launchers to start separate instances of Mozilla Firefox with
different user profiles, dedicated to running specific Firefox extensions.

The first one I built is dedicated to running FireFTP. I downloaded a graphic from the FireFTP site I wanted
to use as the launcher graphic for the dedicated FireFTP instance.

Using the "Main Menu" interface I built the custom launcher in the Internet group. It creates the custom
launcher accurately with exception of the file extension of the Icon filename.

It builds this:

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Firefox FireFTP
Terminal=false
Name=Firefox FireFTP
Exec=firefox -no-remote -P "FireFTP"
Type=Application
Icon=/home/mdlueck/.mozilla/firefox/z78l6ue7.FireFTP/FireFTP_logo64

Actually correct is:

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Firefox FireFTP
Terminal=false
Name=Firefox FireFTP
Exec=firefox -no-remote -P "FireFTP"
Type=Application
Icon=/home/mdlueck/.mozilla/firefox/z78l6ue7.FireFTP/FireFTP_logo64.png

I have built custom launchers before using "Main Menu" without an issue. However, this is the first time
that I wish to select an Icon file from my user profile directory. Perhaps is that the unique 
thing that "Main Menu" applet is not handling correctly?

I may easily toggle the issue on/off by adding the extension in a text editor / returning to "Main Menu" and
editing the selected Icon filename.

I am thankful,

Xubuntu 14.10 64bit

All,

I am just about to get a new computer with an Intel 64bit capability. I
have just downloaded Xubuntu 64bit and I notice the ISO file name has
"amd" as part of it. Is it OK to use it on an Intel box?

Check your automount settings under 'removable drives and media' in the
Settings Manager.

hi,
I checked these setting and the automount option was checked.  I figured out how the automount broke in the first place.  I was trying to format a microSD card with the "mkdosfs -F 32 -v /dev/sdb" command.  I think that broke devices assigned to /dev/sdb (USB drives).

Anyway, I was having some errors on boot and suspend so I thought I would just do fresh install.  Did so and USB drives are mounting again.

Encrypted disk install - Swap won't turn on

Hi all,
Xubuntu 14.04 installed using the Disk Encryption and LVM options.
Swap is showing as unavailable in System Monitor, shows on the Disks app 
as /dev/xubuntu-vg/swap_1 contents unknown
Contents of /etc/fstab as follows:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type> <options>       <dump>  <pass>
/dev/mapper/xubuntu--vg-root /               ext4 errors=remount-ro 
0       1
# /boot was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=45f4cbb0-45ce-4337-9d5b-ac702adbd23f /boot           ext2 
defaults        0       2
/dev/mapper/cryptswap1 none swap sw 0 0

How do I turn Swap on? (This particular machine only has 2gB RAM.......)

Xubuntu user survey: How do you identify?

As an effort to get to know our users and their preferences better,

Lost Libraries

Hello,

I have done something rather stupid. I used aptitude to try to remove
plex manager. The report from aptitude was that plex could not be found
but offered some other files which were probably libraries to delete.
Stupidly in the hope that this might disable plex I went ahead.

As a consequence Synaptic Package Manager bombs out after I enter my
password and I cannot install Muon Package Manager or Muon Software
Centre using Ubuntu Software Centre. They seem to install up to a point
but then USC gives up and forgets about it.

Please does anyone know which libraries/files are likely to be missing
and how I can re-install them?
