Cannot Get LibreOffice Running

I have had to do a complete clean re-install of Xubuntu 15.04 for 
reasons I am too embarrassed to relate. I tried to install LibreOffice 
and when I start it I get the message "The application cannot be 
started. User installation could not be completed.". So clearly 
something went wrong with the installation.

Since I first got this I have tried to uninstall and reinstall using 
both Software Centre and Synaptic. Each time I get the same start up 
message so clearly some configuration or record has been retained.

Could someone please tell me the best way to totally purge the complete 
installation of all the applications in LibreOffice so that I can start 
with a fresh install?

regards,
John

[14.10 64Bit]-Audacity Not Recording Audio From M.A.M.E. Emulator?

[14.10 64Bit]-Audacity Not Recording Audio From M.A.M.E. Emulator?

Hi,

Running Xubuntu 14.10 64Bit fully updated.
I installed both Audacity audio recorder/editor and M.A.M.E. Multiple 
Arcade Machine Emulator.
I am trying to record audio from M.A.M.E. using Audacity, but it's not 
working?
I click record in Audacity and then play some audio in M.A.M.E. but 
Audacity is not recording the audio?
Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

Help with Mint

Good evening
I know, this does not belong here, but for reasons I do not understand 
has the Mint mailing list died. I get:
----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
<linuxmint@...>
     (reason: 550 Host unknown)

Problem:
I installed Mint 17.1, 64-bit on a Dell Optiplex 745 (I intended to make 
this a "production machine" ...)
and was trying to figure out, how to make Wine work with Japanese software.
No success at all.
And maybe I did (touch?) something, although I don't know what.

The machine has been sitting here for a few days, during which I did not 
use it.
Today I tried to start it up and get:
"Cinnamon has crashed. Do you want to use it in fallback mode / restart?"
Neither choice does do anything.
Instead of the usual wallpaper I got a black screen with the usual icons 
(Home, Computer etc.) that do work somehow.
But the start menu is gone, richt clicking options are gone and I cannot 
log out or shut the computer down --- except by cutting the power.
Cutting the power and restarting the computer does not help at all.

I did try (which has helped before):
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
at the end of which I am told, that the "locale en_US" is not supported.

alsaplayer and aplay not working anymore on mp3-files

I used alsaplayer and aplay all the time before upgrading to 15.04 without any problems.
Since then, any mp3 file is producing just "noise". wav files work well.
VLC and Parole player are also working fine.
I found out, that running
alsaplayer  -F 8000 test01.mp3 
does work. But not with -F 44100 or -F 48100 and so on, just a stuttering noise.

aplay test01.mp3 gives , but that is definitely wrong, just cd-like 44100
Wiedergabe: Rohdaten 'test01.mp3' : Unsigned 8 bit, Rate: 8000 Hz, mono

vlc works and  codec is
Typ: Audio
Codec: MPEG Audio layer 1/2 (mpga)
Kanäle: Stereo
Abtastrate: 44100 Hz
Bitrate: 64 kB/s

Also audacity shows normal frequency (graphically), but also no replay possible.

Versions are  xubuntu 15.04

pulseaudio  1:6.0-0ubuntu6


Don't understand where the problem is. I think of a typical pulseaudio problem, but I try to let my system run with "standards"
Any suggestions to solve the problem ?

Desktop slow and icons rearrange after updates

Dear All,

I'm using the latest Xubuntu LTS.

After every update, Desktop icons rearrange. Furthermore it takes long
to delete files on the desktop. Longer than in every other folder.

Is it possible to rebuild the desktop without reinstalling the whole
Xubuntu? Where is the position of desktop icons saved?

I used to use my home-dir with Gnome 2. Are there any files which could
make trouble?

Thank you in advance.

- Chris

[15.04 64Bit]-Delete Old Kernels?

Hi,

I am running Xubuntu 15.04 64Bit on all my computers now.
I received an error message about not enough free space on root to 
install updates.
How can I safely remove old kernels which I don't need anymore to free 
up some space on root?
Thanks, great O.S.!

Re: Geotagging Images (Rog)

The current version of digiKam https://www.digikam.org/node/306
has geolocation of photo support.  I have not used this and am now
trying to install/upgrade to the latest version.
You may have to do a compile from source.

Using x2goclient on xubuntu 14.10, menus and icons not displayed

I have installed x2goclient V 4.0.2.1(Qt - 4.8.6) with os xubuntu 14.10
and used x2goclient to logon to a linux server with Fedora linux v 22. I
am able to logon without problems, but the top menu is not displayed. I
am just able to see the background picture. I am further not able to for
example rightclick the mouse to display menu. 

I am however able to workaround the problem by first starting an
x2goclient session from for example a windows platform or from a memory
stick with the ubuntu os, and then just close the session without logout
clicking x in the top right corner of the screen. Resuming this session
from the xubuntu mini pc, I do get the menu displayed correctly even
though the colors get a little distorted.

I have compared processes running starting a session from the xubuntu pc
with no menu displayed as compared to a session in which the menu is
displayed correctly, and it seems like  processes have not been started
when no menu is displayed, for example the following processes:

xfwm4
/usr/lib64/xfce4/panel/wrapper /usr/lib64/xfce4/panel/plugins/libactions.so 2 14680095 actions
Handlingknapper Logg ut, lås eller andre systemvalg
/usr/lib64/xfce4/panel/wrapper /usr/lib64/xfce4/panel/plugins/libsystray.so 6 14680097 systray
Systemkurv Område som viser beskjedikoner

Any ideas as to what is causing this problem and a solution to problem?
