  1. i am using ubuntu too.
    i can’t save brightness setting in my system.
    can i contact in other means?

    • Hi ,

      Just in case this is not to late , there is a workaround for brightness settings.

      1. Find your video card :
      find / -name brightness

      For me its /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0/card0-eDP-1/intel_backlight/brightness

      2. Adjust your preferred brightness level and check the value :

      cat /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0/card0-eDP-1/intel_backlight/brightness

      3. In /etc/rc.local just add :

      echo YOUR_VALUE > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0/card0-eDP-1/intel_backlight/brightness

      Brightness setting will be forced at next reboot.

      Regards,
      Andrei

  2. Great site! I just recently found you and your content is exactly the kind of stuff I enjoy reading. I find it hard to believe that English isn’t your primary language! Keep up the great work.

  4. I recently upgraded to Vivid Vervet 15.04, and although it was a little bumpy with some drivers, its running well and I like it. But as far as the printer goes, all hell broke lose and it was unusable. But thanks to the guide on here, all is well, thanks!

    Scott.

  5. In your guide to install Skype, you delete all the files etc. on my laptop. Would you be so kind as to put something up how to fix it?

  6. Hi,
    In Ubuntu, how to run [https://gist.github.com/mmstick/8493727] which downloaded as zip file?

    Pls write a detailed thread on this as many are willing to use this script.

    • Just extract the .zip file and run the script after giving executable permission. I’ll write about this later and here’s the brief howto:

      1. Download the .zip file and extract the package in your Downloads folder. You’ll get a new folder with the script (kernel upgrade) in it.

      2. open TERMINAL from Dash, Launcher, or via Ctrl+Alt+T. Navigate to that folder via:

      cd ~/Downloads/FOLDERNAME

      For me, the folder is 8493727-4b7f00f2a6b7b740910b6cc4800f4607aae4174a. You can simply type 84937 and followed with TAB key to auto-complete the full name.

      3. After you get into that folder in terminal, run command to give executable permission:

      chmod +x Ubuntu\ Kernel\ Upgrader\ Script

      4. Finally run the script via:

      ./Ubuntu\ Kernel\ Upgrader\ Script
      • Thank you for posting the reply. Since many wanted to install the latest Stable LTS kernel for Ubuntu, this guide would be helpful for auto install with option dialog.

        1. How about completely removing the installed script without traces when not needed?
        2. How to remove the old kernel post installation of new kernel?
        3. How to roll back to old default kernel when there is trouble with new kernel?

        Since none have posted online about complete installation, removal, rollback for this script, if you could write a new topic ASAP on the above with the answers to these 3 queries, it’d be a complete guide for the Ubuntu kernel upgrader script.

        • 1. There’s no “installed” script, just like an image, video, or audio file in your user folder, you can remove the script file any time when you don’t want it.
