XUbuntu 14.10 Utopic suspend/resume not working for me

Hi, 

The Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic suspend/resume is not working for my Laptop. I first tried with the Live CD, on failing that, and thinking that suspend might need some disk to write to for the suspend info, I did a HD installation. But still, suspend/resume is still not working.

On second attempt (after HD installation), I switched to console and close my Laptop lid. It suspended well, as it has always been. On resume, I see the repeating errors of `sda1` "soft reset failure" (or something like that). Minutes later, I start to see all kinds of disk related errors, disk sector writing error, ext4 journal error, etc.

I thus think the reason of `resume` not working is that the HD is not waken up.

This is Acer Aspire AS5536, with XUbuntu 14.10 Utopic.

Is there any possible workarounds?

Thanks

HDMI Audio Output in XUbuntu 14.10

Hi, 

What's the best way to have my audio output to my HDMI digital audio output port? I found it has always been a challenge for me to switch my laptop's sound output from itself to the TV it connects. 

Any help appreciated. 

Thanks

Flash player for XUbuntu 14.10

Hi, 

XUbuntu 14.10 does not come with a builtin flashplugin to play flashes in the firefox browser, right? The problem is that I'm having problem installing one. I tried to install, 

- flashplugin-installer - Adobe Flash Player plugin installer
- adobe-flashplugin - Adobe Flash Player plugin version 11

But neither was able to play the flashes on the http://www.discovery.ca/Video site. Is it the firefox's flashplugin problem or the site's problem? Can someone play flashes from the http://www.discovery.ca/Video? It keeps ask me to download flashplugin, but when I'm there at the Adobe flashplugin download site, I notice its version is exactly the same as the version with my installed adobe-flashplugin. 

Any help? 

Thanks

Generating SSL certificates

Hello,

First of all, sorry if this is a duplicate, I have had some issues with
my mailer. Second and most important, I have some need to generate SSL
certificates for purposes I do not deem useful to share. At any rate,
should I use OpenSSL, LibreSSL, or something else that I do not know by
name at this time? What would you recommend?

Thanks.
L.S.

14.10 weird dmesg error

Hello all,
After an unknown reasons for my xubuntu to suddenly "eat itself" (my 
words) last weekend - it stopped booting thought into the gui, could not 
even startx from a recovery console, I decided to fresh install...and 
some of the new xubuntu features now appear...i still love it (/home is 
on a separate partition so my data was safe). I have noticed in the 
dmesg log though something I've been unable to find information on, via 
that method called google.

The error I see is

[Thu Nov 20 22:07:21 2014] systemd-logind[810]: Failed to start unit 
user@...: Unknown unit: user@...
[Thu Nov 20 22:07:21 2014] systemd-logind[810]: Failed to start user 
service: Unknown unit: user@...

I don't know what this service is, or where it came from.

Any clues/help/explanation?

Regards

Andy

Install to Mirrored Disks

Hi All,

I had cause to install Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.6 (based on RedHat) to
a machine with a pair of identical disks, and the installer let me set
them up as a mirrored pair.

I tried to do the same with Xubuntu, but the installer doesn't have that
option.

How can I install (X?)ubuntu on a mirrored pair?

Thanks.

garmin satnav updates

I noticed in the repos that there was a garmin-plugins app. There is also a 
Firefox addon.

Despite the Garmin website offering updates for windows and mac it would seem 
it is possible to do updates with linux. I tried several googles but still 
unlclear and was wondering if anyone could advise.

thanks

Hello Nancy,

since this is a user support question, I've forwarded this to the user
support and discussions mailing list (and updated the subject).

Please subscribe to that list and send all further messages there.

Cheers,

How to mount a cell phone

I have a Casio C811 G-zone cell phone that I'd like to be able to
acess from my Xubuntu 14.04.1 system.

When I plug it in to the USB port, it shows up in lsusb as an NEC
device, but the file system never mounts and I can't seem to access it
as a /dev device.

The phone has version 4.12 of Android, if that's any help.

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks.

System Encryption and Home

Hello xubuntu-users,

I require assistance with something: if I were to fully encrypt my
disk/filesystem, would it still be worth it to encrypt my
/home/≤whatever> folders? Would it slow down my system by a significant
amount to encrypt on two layers as such rather than only one?
