It seems this problem is by no means exclusive to elementary OS (they rarely are) have a look here: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2336728

elementary OS Juno is based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Any system update to core Ubuntu will have affect on elementary OS too. It means when Ubuntu 18.04 has been patched with latest sudo, it will be on elementary OS too. You need update your system then to get the new patch. From your shared link, It's telling: The problem can be corrected by updating your ...

@RodrigoN, if your kernel version (which can be displayed in Terminal via uname -r command) is below 5.0.x, and your initial Ubuntu distro was 18.04 or 18.04.1, you don't have HWE installed. As stated here: "The [HWE] stack consists of a newer Linux kernel [meaning, v5.0], X.org graphical server, and graphics drivers. These weren’t automatically installed ...

You can install the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Hardware Enablement (HWE) packages in order to get a newer kernel. I've been using this on my Elementary systems for half a year or so without issues (Elementary 5.0 Juno is built from Ubuntu 18.04). At time of typing this my main system is using 5.0.0-31-generic. HTH

BAD IDEA WARNING! I believe you will achieve the desired effect by running Files with sudo permissions. To do that, got to Applications -> right-click on Files -> New Window as Administrator -> input your password in the authentication window -> Files is running. You'll be able to move, edit and delete any file you want (EVEN THE CRITICALLY IMPORTANT ONES!)

As far as I understand, kernels do not exist in a vacuum. They rely on the rest of the system components to be compatible with their newer architecture. Even if newer kernel might be somewhat faster or have new cool features, there's some risk of instability, when you insert a newer kernel into an older system, as newer kernels might not necessarily be fully ...

According to @dzierzak It had changed on my Elementary OS stock Kernel (4.15.X), I updated Flash by Google Chrome (chrome://components) and it works on all kernels now.

Had some similar problem with a full bluetooth headphone.. Installed PulseEffects, did some Tweaks and it worked fine.. later on the problem came back but I think you could try that.

For me at least, doing: #echo EHC1 > /proc/acpi/wakeup Fixed it. But it was the Bluetooth waking the machine after a second or two of suspend. I'd cat the file, and try disabling the values one at a time, followed by an attempt at suspending the machine. Changes to the file are NOT persistent, so everything in it will be changed to default on reboot. ...

I recommend using CUPS to install the printer: Visit http://localhost:631/admin/ in Firefox (it will NOT work in Chrome -> see cannot configure CUPS on elementary OS juno ) Click on Add Printer Login with your elementary OS user and password Choose your printer's connection protocol Click Continue Type your printer's path in the Connection filed Click on ...

PART 1 As super-wingpanel software appears to be quite old, no wonder its repository (PPA) doesn't have proper release file - i. e. the version, that's been specifically compiled for Ubuntu 18.04 (codename 'bionic', on which elementary OS 5 is based). To fix this error (i. e. to stop super-wingpanel's further attempts to get non-existent updates, while ...

Trying to open CUPS in Chrome will NOT work (no authentication window is displayed)! This is a Chrome "feature", where they decided to prevent popups from and dialogs when accessing non-https locations. It works though in Firefox and Epiphany. I recommend Firefox, because Epiphany seems to have some issues displaying the button labels :D

same question dude, i just found this https://www.reddit.com/r/elementaryos/comments/d3mxfi/change_new_greeters_background/

You need to set its valign property to center: Gtk.Switch toggle = new Gtk.Switch(); toggle.valign = Gtk.Align.CENTER; Also, it's worth having a look at Granite.ModeSwitch EDIT: I strongly recommend Alessandro Castellani's Vala Tutorials. It covers everithing you need to know to get you started.

Depending on the age of your system, Installing the Ubuntu Bionic Beaver hardware enablement stack might help you. Otherwise try following the troubleshooting wireless on Ubuntu (since elementary OS uses Ubuntu for it's base) if it is a broadcom card there's a good chance you'll need to install an external driver.

That means you added a PPA that doesn't work with the current version of elementary. To delete it do sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily

If your computer isn't showing WiFi at all, you may need to find a driver for your WiFi card. Do a Google search for your make and model and see if someone has built something or has a solution for it. Ubuntu forums are really helpful for this since Juno is built on 18.04. Also, sometimes my wifi just stops working and running service network-manager ...

Elementary OS is based on Ubuntu. If you had no problems with the hardware on Ubuntu there's a strong indication that you'll be able to use it without any hiccups on Elementary too.

check the integrity of the ISO you downloaded, it could be that your elementary ISO is corrupted or maybe your USB is faulty

Why doesn't it work? Elementary OS dropped support for GtkStatusIcon and Ayatana [source] (the two tray APIs most applications use). The reason is probably that they wanted to force developers to make their indicator apps eOS-specific, so that they don't ruin the user experience. For this reason, no old indicator app will work with Juno. Alternative ...

Also, as written on NBC Gold troubleshoot page: You will need to unblock 3rd party cookies, in order to view video. (As this is a must, try unblocking 3rd party cookies in your browser, and see if it will enable video streaming.)

I used usb-startup-creator available in xubuntu to create an install-usb for elementary os this week. Worked perfectly! Or maybe check the bios/uefi/secureboot settings of the laptop. Sometimes laptops are protected to prevent installing other os's than windows...

Try this: 1) first remove previously added repository: sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks/ppa 2) Then add it manually: right-click Files icon, select New Window as Admin and go to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/; in that directory, create an empty file and name it philip_scott-ubuntu-elementary-tweaks-bionic.list; open that file ...
