And you haven't changed anything? Because I really don't get what's happened here. The issue is that it's pointing to "hera" in the repository, which doesn't exist. It has to be "bionic". I know there's a way to reset apt, but I'm not sure how it'll handle the PPAs of elementary, meaning, you'll have to edit them yourself. You'll have to edit /etc/apt/...

Macbook2,1 has 32bit EFI. Normal grub tries to install 64bit efi loader, so You need to Install grub-efi-ia32 and run grub-install. Here I have a bookmark which describes the whole installation process on Macbook2,1. https://cloud-infra.engineer/installing-elementary-os-on-my-late-2006-macbook/

I tried to avoid this, but after installing new nvidia-340 driver the "shutdown"-button in the menu works. driver version: nvidia-340 340.108 Now, I have a little problem the screen resolution in the login screen is not correct (or sometimes the wallpaper). But I think this is to fix soon. ;)

You have wrongly set the power button in power management. And instead of poweroff it hibernates the machine. Change it please.

You can install TLP to improve it. You will find an answer in Google how to install it in Ubuntu. Because Elementary OS is based on Ubuntu repo, you can install the software identical way in Elementary OS like in Ubuntu.

I would start by trying to update the kernel with a more recent one, if you don't have any specific reason to stay on 4.15. Latest is 5.3.0-53-generic. To get there: sudo apt install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04 From now on, you will receive in AppCenter the new kernel updates.

I have the same problem. sudo wingpanel fixes this for the moment. I always put the pc into standby and most of the time, there are two user sessions. I just did some tests and could reproduce and "fix" it: start E OS login with user A at the power Menu choose user B login with user B at the power Menu choose user A login with User A at the power Menu try ...

Thats exactly what I experienced, too. I can launch and use R via the Terminal (which feels a bit weird), but the icons/launchers for R and RStudio exist, but simply won't do anything. Haven't tried R Commander yet. Also tried downloading R itself via the AppCenter, but that doesn't change anything. But, as you may have already seen from the description ...

this is not available. elementary simply handles this in another way and only with the Apps Launcher. Greetings

The issue seems to have been related to secure boot. I hadn't set an admin password in my BIOS, which I suppose was required? So while I had disabled secure boot at some point in the past, this specific setting had been reset or was being ignored by the lack of an admin pass. Setting the password solved the issue.

The final solution: How to replace the magnifier/search icon using Inkscape See like this as an example: /usr/share/icons/McMojave-circle-dark/actions/symbolic/system-search-symbolic.svg So replace the icon using sudo inkscape (to run as root) with the elementary OS logo. I suppose you know how to open the mentioned svg file in Inkscape and do it. ...

This solution is wrong, below is correct solution. Treat this as a way of investigation, please.

For elementary-x theme you need to edit it here: /home/yourusername/.themes/elementary-x/gtk-3.0/apps.css or if you have it in: /usr/share/themes/elementary-x/gtk-3.0/apps.css Depends on where did you install the theme for user or for all users. https://github.com/surajmandalcell/elementary-x/blob/master/README.md As you can read here: git clone ...

Check who is the owner of .Xauthority file. It should be a user instead of root.

Solution which removes Applications name from the panel If you do not have vim, then install it with below command in terminal: sudo apt install vim Then type in terminal for example like below: (bear in mind that Nordic is a name of my theme which I am using currently, the default one is /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-3.0/gtk.css) sudo vim /usr/share/...

I noticed that there is a glitch that sometimes happens when setting up mirror displays. The pixel doubling option gets enabled when it shouldn't. I cannot guarantee the following solutions work! If you get stuck you might need to look up some way to configure display options in the Terminal or TTY. Maybe someone can add instructions as another solution or ...

Thanks for your feedback... :) Well, I think I sort of fixed it at least temporarily in the meantime; seems the Bluetooth component in some way was (per software?) disabled via rfkill which I "fixed" - but I have no idea how that happened. It's working again, now, and I hope it will stay that way. :)

There is a button you can use to download it, but the button is part of the internal PDF viewer, so I assume you're unable to use it. I can guarantee this won't be fixed because nobody has reported a bug. First step would be a bug report on gitlab.gnome.org.

I tried to resize it via gsettings but is not working, although the gsettings modification seems to work: Get actual dimensions: $ gsettings get io.elementary.switchboard.saved-state window-size (1315, 1015) Change vertical size to a number smaller than screen vertical resolution ( 740 < 768 ) : $ gsettings set io.elementary.switchboard.saved-...

To change theme, icons and fonts in elementary OS you need a third party app called elementary tweaks. Open the terminal and copy/paste these commands; sudo apt install software-properties-common sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks sudo apt install elementary-tweaks You can now find elementary tweaks in System Settings.

The solution is to boot to USB and NOT UEFI from boot option menu. Leave the internal hard disks as first bootable options in BIOS, use F-Key (usually F12) at bootup to enter boot option menu. Then do manual partitioning. Remove all partitions. Create primary partition 512 - 1024 MB , format as fat32 and mount as /boot/EFI Then create swap 8-16GB and ...

You need to install from the UEFI partition on your eOS USB stick. Just choose UEFI USB in the boot options menu when you start your computer.

First thing first. Backup your important files before venturing further. To add a PPA to eOS you need to install: sudo apt install software-properties-common Next thing is to add a PPA which contains driver for intel: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers sudo apt update Now getting the latest intel driver: sudo apt install xserver-xorg-...

You can try to recompile the app, it doesn't call "System Setting", the app name is Switchboard, so just go to the Elementary OS github and check the repo of this app (https://github.com/elementary/switchboard ), 1) Download the repo 2) Install all the libraries and dependencies 3) Compile the project with vala and ninja 4) DONE ! :D

if you could give some more information I could help you. By this I mean, if you modified something or installed an app before it happened. Regards.

The issue is indeed related to the kernel updates, and affects the Intel HD graphics card driver. There's a fix in the next kernel release (5.30-52): https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1872001 The alternative is to roll back to 5.30-45 (https://www.reddit.com/r/linuxmint/comments/g9vxce/zoom_freezing_in_linux_kernel_greater_than_53045/) ...

This could be a USB power issue. Depending on what kind of keyboard you have, it's possible that it's drawing more voltage than your Netbook can handle when not plugged in. You might consider using a powered USB hub. I like the ones Plugable provides since they were recommended to me a while back as being unusual in that they provide really solid power (...

I managed to solve the problem, the issue was installing the package using snap, it almost seemed like websites thought I was logging on from a mobile device. When I deleted it and reinstalled using apt it worked fine, this was also problem with a fps game I installed with snap as well

I came up with a solution. If I go to the "Security & Privacy" settings and go to the Locking tab and set "Lock on suspend" and "Lock after screen turns off" both to OFF, I can wake my laptop back up without having to open the laptop lid.
