Audio a mess after wakeup from suspend

Ubuntu 22.04 coming out of suspend has started giving choppy sped up audio output - no apparent fix except to reboot.

I tried a series of different kernels w/ no cure. I went into bios and disabled Fastboot, no cure.

Any ideas?

Thanks

24.04 upgrade issues.

I have an Acer Nitro 5 A515-47.

Installed 23.10 version. Webcam was not working.

Then I tried to upgrade to 24.04. Now the webcam is not working, and HDMI output is crashed (I use an external monitor as main screen).

Didn't want to install everything from the start, as I have some ssh keys to authenticate github, but I tried everything and cannot fix even the previously working HDMI port...

And everything works perfectly in Win11.

24.04 multihead losing layout

Ubuntu 22.04: If I turn off and turn on my monitors, everything comes back the same.

Ubuntu 24.04: If I turn off and turn on my monitors, the layout is totally different, my right/left portrait monitors are landscape, and my main 4k needs to be manually enabled in display settings.

Any advice? It's a desktop, so display settings will virtually never change. I'm glad to hardcode this, if there's a place to do that.

(NVidia 550 / Ampere)

Does Kubuntu 24.04 does support dualbooting with secure boot enabled?

Hello. I have a ASUS VivoBook M513UA and it has windows 11 pre installed, and I am dualbooting with Kubuntu 24.04 LTS. And I will NOT disable secure boot, if I do that, windows will not boot anymore. Should I leave it on?

I was able to set a secure boot password back in 22.04 LTS, But with the new Ubuntu 24.04 LTS and it's flavors (Including Kubuntu 24.04 LTS and it's new Calamares installer) there was no option for third party drivers, and no option for a secure boot password, and when I installed it, there is no MOK management screen either!

Will I be able to use Kubuntu with secure boot enabled?

How do I replace the OS on a bootable USB with another?

I've successfully made a bootable USB with GNOME Disks before, but I'm worried it won't work the same way if there's already an OS on the USB.

Ubuntu Installer not Detecting SSD After Failed Installation

I tried installing Ubuntu 24.04 LTS yesterday. For some reason, the installer kept closing at random times without an error message. There was a point where I got it to almost finish installing, but then it crashed again. When I restarted the installer, it wouldn't detect my SSD. I am able to still access my SSD on Windows and I can also see it in GParted, but just not in the installer. I checked my bios and my SATA configuration is set to AHCI. Secure boot is off and fast startup is also off. From what I can see in GParted and in Windows Disk Management, the SSD is the same as it was before the install meaning no new partitions. I also tried installing Ubuntu 22.04 LTS instead, but same thing there.

EDIT: I solved the problem by going into Windows, going to This PC -> Right click the drive and click properties -> Click Tools -> Run the repair tool -> Restart Windows -> Shut down and boot from live USB

How do I change the default Ubuntu's Windows Controls into Mac Windows Controls

I tried to achieve the Mac Windows Controls by using the White Sur theme, but it seems like the Mac Windows Controls gets applied to only few applications, and other application are left with the default Windows Control looks, which honestly looks ugly. Any solution regarding how can I turn the Ubuntu's Windows Controls into Mac Windows Controls in all applications.

Why can't I use the default speaker if headphones are plugged in?

Whenever I plug something into the headphone jack, the built in speakers just stop working, they don't show up in settings, and say they're unavailable in PulseAudio. I've been trying to use both the built in and headphones at the same time, any help?

can't ping default gateway after realtek network drivers update

So long story short, i updated my network drivers for realtek gbe family controller and since then, i haven’t been able to access wifi or ethernet on this device. Settings are telling me that its connected and secured. ive tried: -resetting my network drivers -resetting my network settings -resetting my pc -switching to Ubuntu to see if its a windows problem -run all the default debug commands -a few more i don’t remember.

A friend of mine told me to buy a new pcie nic, but im not too familiar with it and i still wanna try everything else before buying. Thanks in advance!

Lenovo Thinkbook (maybe Asus Zenbook) for Fedora/Ubuntu

I am basically deciding between Asus Zenbook and Lenovo Thinkbook for my new laptop for Fedora, or if it does not work then Ubuntu. I was already advised to check Thinkpads for good compatibility, but newest T14 are out of my budget and very little availability of different models where I am.

I mostly want Thinkbook 16 G6 with Ryzen 3 or 7 and 16GB ram.

Which components are problematic in terms of compatibility? Are those just wifi network card, fingerprint and touchpad?

Is wifi network card problematic only if is Qualcomm? Will I be fine if I get the one made by Intel, MediaTek or RealTek?

Power usage in Ubuntu 24.04 / nvidia / fractional scaling default

  • I upgraded to Ubuntu 24.04.
  • Power usage for my NVidia card spiked to 60W idle.
  • Fans were running all the time.

It was not fun. I couldn't fix it. I upgraded to NVidia 550 drivers, and power usage only changed slightly.

What fixed it was changing desktop scaling from 150% to 100%. Power is under 25W idle. Not perfect, but not horrible either.

I figured I'd post in case it helps other folks (as well as whether others can replicate; I have an oddball card). To see power usage, just run nvidia-smi.

Suggestion: Ubuntu should not use fractional scaling by default until it figures out why it's so power-hungry. It shouldn't require 35W of power to scale a display. If I were to enable it myself, I'd know where things went wrong. Because Ubuntu did, I had no idea why my power spiked through the roof. At current energy prices, 35W costs about $95/year where I live. It's actually probably more that just during the summer, since AC would be running too (but less in the winter). Not to mention CO2.

How to disable the included onscreen-keyboard in 22.04

I am configuring a Ubuntu workstation as a kiosk with a touch-screen.
But the addition of the touch-screen means that the GUI triggers an onscreen-keyboard when it believes I want to enter text: Pic

I tried everything that I and chatgpt know, and so far nothing has worked.
Anyone know by chance what this particular onscreen-keyboard is called? That would hopefully allow me to goggle how to disable it.

The external monitor does not wake up from sleep at 4K resolution

I have Ubuntu Studio 24.04 and Ubuntu 24.04 - the problem is identical on both. Namely, I have a 4K external monitor connected to my laptop. I would like to use the native 4K resolution on both the laptop and the external monitor. Unfortunately, if I use the 4K resolution, every time the computer goes into sleep mode or just screen saver mode, the external screen doesn't wake up. Changing the resolution to a lower one and then back to 4K helps, and everything works until the next sleep. The problem does not occur at resolutions lower than 4K - the external monitor wakes up every time.

I am using an NVIDIA GeForce 2080 RTX graphics card with the nvidia-driver-550 drivers, but I have checked with several earlier versions. The same issue occurs with the Nouveau drivers.

Can an ordinary installed Ubuntu application listen as daemon for additional mouse side buttons and activate when they are pressed?

Who has programmed to Ubuntu, please tell me:
Can an ordinary installed Ubuntu application listen as daemon for additional mouse side buttons and activate when they are pressed?
Can it interfere with other applications active at the moment of mouse click?
Can it take screenshots?
I want to write a useful application for Ubuntu. But have never written any daemons.

I have the weirdest of problems

EDIT: Solved!

So I just installed Ubuntu 24.04 as a dual boot with Windows in my laptop and the following happens:

  • Installation goes fine (full install, all drivers etc), system reboots fine but I am unable to detect wifi access points. Driver error? Its got an Intel AX211 for wifi 6E.
  • I reboot, I choose Ubuntu from grub and then I get a black screen. Unable to boot into Ubuntu. Windows works fine. From here forwards all normal boots will hang there. Only the first reboot after install "works".
  • I choose advanced options in grub, I choose normal boot from that menu and instead of a black screen it hangs in "Loading initial ramdisk..." just after "Loading linux 6.8.0-31-generic..."
  • I choose advanced options in grub but instead of normal mode I go into recovery mode and in recovery mode I choose "resume normal boot". I am able to boot into the desktop, wifi now works but I am unable to change brightness from the keyboard. Volume control from keyboard works fine. Changing display scaling does not work, screen goes black and it reverts to normal.

The strange thing is that when running live images from bootable usbs everything works fine, wifi, display scaling, brightness... I think it's a drivers issue, Ubuntu is getting confused with what to load. My laptop is an HP Envy 16-h1000, just released 2023. How to I fix this??? Help please. Also, i'm using XUbuntu.

Having a small issue. (Steam)

Long story short I installed Ubuntu again for the first time since 2014. I’m having an issue with steam. It won’t let me use my microphone for voice chat. I can use my mic in all other applications but steam just gives me a red mic icon like it’s muted and won’t pick up any signal from the mic when testing.

Any ideas? Can’t seem to find anything definitive on google.
