Ubuntu 14.04 with full system encryption Backup to USB?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 30, 2014
I have a device that runs Ubuntu 14.04 with full system encryption on a 180GB SSD, I want to backup (clone) the disk to a USB connected SSD on a regular basis. The intention is to get a exact replicate so I could just switch the disks in case of internal disk failure.
Is this possible to do on a schedule without rebooting the unit?
The idea is like I already said to get a identical backup disk for quick switch. Any other ways of doing it? Will the backup also be encrypted?
Thanks for reading
Unable to install Ubuntu 14.04.2 on system with Gigabyte Z97x motherboard
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 15, 2015
Hi all, I am new to the forums and was wondering if anyone could help me. I have used linux Ubuntu before several years ago I believe version 12. something. So I am somewhat familiar with linux basics and installation, however I can not seem to get to the installer for the latest version of ubuntu. I'd really like to install a linux distro on my computer for cross platform software and game development (I'm currently working with an indie game studios kickstarter group). As mentioned I have some but very limited knowledge when it comes to linux distros and I am only really familiar with ubuntu (although this time I did try installing linux mint as well - that also fails).
The problem is that when I try to boot into the installer it either hangs on a black screen (in UEFI mode) or goes to a blank (sometimes a few lines of text) grey screen in the legacy mode. The installer I am using is a 30 gigabyte flash drive formatted and created with the universal usb installer program (excessive
Help Full Disk Encrypted Ubuntu 14.04 x64 (full install) on USB stick
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 22, 2014
I'm looking to build a USB stick for single user design (obviously) running Ubuntu x64 14.04 with full disk encryption (LUKS) for use on UEFI and BIOS systems. I'm a noob and I'm confused over the various things i've seen regarding partition layouts, etc.
I've already built non-FDE Ubuntu x86 "full" installs on USB sticks for a year now, and they work as I need them. I want to enhance this with a need for UEFI and FDE.
I have just built/installed one that works, but I'm not pleased with the automatic partition design it used. It is very wasteful on my 16gb USB thumb drive. I will try to share a pic showing the partition layout on the drive that I don't like. There is an enourmous /swap inside the LUKS. But I can share more info if you like.
As few partitions as possible
Only if a separate /boot partition is required I want it to be 1GB (can't stand old kernels causing install problems anymore)
I want to skip the swap partition (
Changing plymouth and grub resolution in ubuntu 14.04 with nvidia?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 22, 2014
Has anyone managed to be able to get plymouth and grub looking good on trusty?
I have got it looking good (1920x1080 resolution on plymouth and grub)) on mint 13 and presumably ubuntu 12.04 but trusty doesn't change resolution and behaves the same.
I have tried adding this to etc/default/grub
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1920x1080-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap"
This to modules
uvesafb mode_option=1280x1024-24 mtrr=3 scroll=ywrap
and framebuffer=y to
and then updated initramfs and grub but nothing changes in trusty.
Can anyone give me any tips?

Xubuntu 14.04 or Ubuntu 14.04 with XFCE4
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 1, 2014
Hi, with the release of 14.04 I am undecided whether to get Xubuntu of Ubuntu with XFCE. There is a big major bug to me in Xubuntu 14.04, that is "Xfce4 Power Manager does not restore screen power (1259339), see the release notes for details and workarounds". I want to install Xubuntu on an old netbook with 1GB RAM. And this bug is raising my doubt in installing Xubuntu. This means that the user of this netbook will feel irritated with this bug. And those workaround are not really suitable for the user. So my question is, if I install Ubuntu 14.04 and install just the xfce4 package, will the bug still be around? Because, for me this seems like the best alternative. And no Lubuntu 14.04 since Lubuntu does not use the main Ubuntu repository.
Ubuntu 14.04 mouse and system freeze
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 22, 2014
I am one of those thousands of users, who experiences frequent freezes and system locks with Ubuntu over the years. 14.04 is no different:
I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on a newer standard Intel hardware computer and on a brand new harddisk. Installed all updates and kernel 3.13.0-29-generic. Default settings for desktop environment.
Motherboard is Gigabyte Technology Co. HA65M-D2H-B3 with up to date Award Software International F12 BIOS, 4x Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500 CPU @ 3.30GHz processors, 8 MB RAM and NVIDIA Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210] (rev a2) graphics adapter. Using the recommended and tested NVidia binary 331.38 proprietary driver.
The same machine runs FreeBSD, Gnome and Compiz 3D desktop environment perfectly. Even Windows.
However, once again Ubuntu has managed to release a "stable" system, that not only freezes the mouse within short time of use or no use, but also manages to completely freeze the system in a manner, that leaves nothing left but
wireless says "no such device" and wont connect (ubuntu 14.04 with Xfce DE)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 5, 2014
I have ubuntu 14.04 with Xfce DE.
"no such WaveLAN device" (WaveLAN is the name of the wireless moniotor program, an unimportant fact I thought I'd mention) is what it says but when I reboot it detects wireless networks on the login screen, so go figure.
I had to connect a new modem and now my wireless network wont connect. Clearly this thing didnt like me changing out the modem so now it says no such device.
-restarting the laptop
-deleting the network and re-entering it
-deleting the network, restarting laptop, then re-entering it
-deleting the network, powering down the laptop, powering down the modem and then restarting everything.
All to no avail.
What can I do to fix this??

Problems running Flash content on Ubuntu 14.04 (with unusual network activity)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 15, 2014
If this thread sounds familiar, I had previously asked about it (in the Networking category). I thought I had fixed the problem, but it's still happening.
My computer is a Toshiba Satellite L840D notebook. I started with 12.04 installed and upgraded to 14.04 soon after.
I'll describe this using a YouTube video as the example, but this also applies to other sites with Flash content (games, for example). Whenever I click play, if I'm using the wireless, only a short amount of the video downloads, and then it stops completely and the loading circle appears. If I use an Ethernet cable, the whole video will download. In either case I can see that the network gets very busy sending data. I took this screenshot (using Ethernet cable) to explain:
Note that the total data sent is greater than the total received. Also, when I've been using either the cable or the wireless, people using other computers on my home network notice the Internet is ve
