Ubuntu :: Why The "Do Nothing" Option When Closing The Laptop Lid Has Disappeared From V10

Aug 31, 2010

I wonder why the "Do Nothing" option when closing the laptop lid has disappeared from Ubuntu v10.We use Ubuntu for a network of netbooks for different artworks and have relied on this feature to keep our screens alive (when running a vga data projector), in tight spaces that don't allow for the netbook lids to be open.

Ubuntu :: KDE Loggin Option Disappeared

May 13, 2011

I installed kde and xfce to try them out (explained further in my other threads - almost a prequel to this if you like) and they were fine and dandy. Decided I wanted to lose xfce and did that (as explained in said previous threads) via synaptics.However, not only did it get rid of xubuntu, it got rid of the option to loggin on kubuntu as well (which I didn't want to do - I decided I wanted to keep kubuntu). I'm pretty sure that kde is still here on my computer because when I boot my computer with ubuntu, I get the kubuntu loading screen with blue background. I want to be able to log in with kde but I don't have the option at loggin.

Fedora Hardware :: Closing Laptop Lid Does Nothing

Oct 4, 2010

Since my laptop went back to DELL to be repaired closing the lid does nothing. It used to put the laptop into suspend. I even tried on my windows partition and closing it still does nothing. I suspected that the switch(?) that controls this is not sending any data to the laptop - is there away to see if any input is being received when the lid is closed? Or does anyone have any other thoughts on what might be at fault?

Ubuntu :: Closing Laptop Cover Causes Freeze On Opening?

Nov 21, 2010

I recently upgraded my laptop from Lucid to Meerkat 10.10. Everything was fine until I closed my laptop cover. In "suspend" , I can't come back. I get a black screen with a frozen cursor, and I have to reboot. Not a good situation with a laptop. Is there anything I can do? I prefer Meerkat to Lucid for my laptop except for this one area.

Ubuntu :: 11.04: Screen Glitches After Closing And Opening Laptop?

May 8, 2011

since I've upgraded to 11.04 on my Dell Latitude E6400, every time I close the lid and open it again, Ubuntu fires up but the screen itself is totally messed up, it's just random patterns all over the screen. The laptop is locked, so I can type in my password, hit enter, and once I'm logged in again the screen is perfectly fine, so the system itself works, only the display is the problem

Ubuntu :: Gnome / XORG Freezes When Closing Laptop Lid

May 17, 2011

Gnome (or XORG, I'm not sure which name to give it) freezes up not always, but about once every 24 hours after I close the laptop's cover/lid. I know this happens when I close the lid rather than open it judging by the time the clock is locked at. The cursor will move around on the screen, but noting will react to it in any way. Other services such as FTP and Samba still work just fine when the computer is "locked down". Without more details to why the problem is occurring, I have no idea what to search for or where to get started solving the problem. I have attached the XORG logs (found in var/log) in case they are of any use.

Ubuntu :: After Closing Lid My Laptop Displays A Black Screen

May 24, 2011

Whenever I use the function hibernate or sleep - or just generally close my lid on my laptop, my laptop displays a black screen when I open the lid again - though it is turned on.

Basically, it hibernates/sleeps the laptop when I close the lid. When I open the lid though, it turns on the laptop, but brings me a black screen.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audio - Analog 5.1 Option Has Disappeared

Jul 18, 2010

I could effortlessly set my output in Sound Preferences to be Analog 5.1. Now I just discovered that this option has disappeared, for no apparent reason. I haven't been messing around with any settings, other than installing updates as they've been rolled out. Would be nice to have 5.1 surround back as an option.

General :: Windows - Execute Something When Closing Laptop's Lid?

May 28, 2010

I'm wondering if there is any way to execute a program, run some command or anything else when closing the laptop's lid.
My question aims to be generic, both for Windows and Linux. Something useful should be locking the laptop when closing the lid (Win + L in windows), or running expensive processes such as antivirus analysis etc. without doing it manually before closing the lid.

Dec 5, 2010

I have a Dell Latitude D505. I installed Squeeze on 12 November 2011 from the weekly DVD. I install updates every day, when available.
My kernel: 2.6.32-5-686 #1 SMP Thu Nov 25 18:43:34 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

Everything is working fine except the button that is pressed when I close my lid. Hibernate works, Suspend works, blank screen works. user is member of the group "powerdev". I really thought thread "closing-laptop-lid-renders-computer-unusable-786822" would bring me a solution. When I close my lid my screens turns black with my mouse cursor on it. Connections with ssh are broken. Keyboard is dead, mouse pad too. It looks like it never start any software it just hangs immediately. I cant find anything in my logs.

Ubuntu :: Maverick Meerkat Laptop Does Not Suspend After Closing Lid / Sort It?

Oct 17, 2010

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Lost After Closing Laptop After 9.10 Upgrade

Jan 16, 2010

I have an odd problem in that my wireless connection is okay until I close the laptop. When I open it back up, I'm unable to reconnect. This problem first occurred after upgrading to 9.10. I can reconnect after restarting. I tried several things before breaking down and reinstalling 9.04. After installing 9.04, everything works great. Any suggestions on what is going on before I try upgrading to 9.10 again? I have a Dell D600.

Ubuntu :: Ubuntu 9,10 System/administration/printing Option Disappeared

Feb 16, 2010

I used the system/administration/printing option to set up a printer (Lexmark X4650).

The exact driver wasn't available, so I chose one 'close' to mine, but it wouldn't print.

I followed various threads to try to sort this, but now the system/administration/printing option has disappeared.

I can go in to [url] and set up a printer again, but this still doesn't work and the option in system/administration/printing still isn't there!

Whilst I see that there are issues with some Lexmark printers, which I can fire-fight, it's the fact that

I've obviously done something to delete the Printing option that is the issue!

Networking :: Wireless Drivers/functionality Suddenly Disappeared - Kubuntu 9.1 HP TX1000 Laptop

Apr 18, 2010

I switched my girlfriend laptop from windows 7 to Kubuntu 9.4, then upgraded to karmic koala. I was able to, through the hardware manager, install a software modem driver, and a firmware unwrapper driver for her broadcom 4.X series wireless adapter. Whenever I attempted to install the broadcom 4.1, 4.2. ect driver itself a package update would fail, but wireless functionality still worked nonetheless. My girlfriend has a TX1000 HP laptop, similar to this one:[URL]..Product number in the bios is GA648UA#ABA System Board ID is 30BF

The wireless drivers she needs are proprietary. This worked for a while, although seemingly at random her wireless would go out, and her analog sound driver for her Nvidia chipsets would too. Usually logging out of the KDE environment and back in fixed the issue. Now wireless is completely gone; using a hard ethernet core to the router still works. Even connected to the internet, the proprietary drivers that used to be available in the hardware manager aren't there anymore. Right before the driver disappeared, I updated the system with all the latest round of updates, and installed the base package and some plugins for VLC. I don't know how to role back packages to see if an update killed the wireless, I uninstalled the VLC software but that didn't help.

Wireless is checked enabled on my taskbar, and I have checked my bios and haven't found any setting to disable the wireless adapter. Anything networking related has been enabled. At this point I am rather frustrated with the stability of Kubuntu overall and would prefer a hard solution that will permanently fix the problem.
