I can’t install any newer versions of vagrant past 1.8.1

I am using apt-get to install Vagrant on Ubuntu 16.04. The newest version listed on the website is 1.9.8, once installed I check the version and it is says I have 1.8.1 installed. I then tried downloading the deb package and installing it that way but got the same result. The reason I am trying to get a new version is because I am having problems with compatibility between Vagrant 1.8.1 and VirtualBox 5.1. I…

Dual monitor locks sound to single HDMI output

Here’s how it goes, if I have a single monitor set up (either display port or hdmi), sound works just fine. If I have two monitors (One hdmi, one Display port), sound will still work, but in a single monitor only, I cannot change the output to a the other monitor port. I don’t know why, but sound defaults to the hdmi output, then I can’t change to display port output. Now if I start…

17.04 update login loop

I’ve seen a lot of login loop questions and threads and have tried everything from here – Ubuntu gets stuck in a login loop Except installing gdm3, but I cannot get out of the damn login loop. Should I try gdm3? The only reason I didn’t yet is because I’ve been a long time ubuntu user and my default login is customized pretty specifically for work and school. What’s strange is I am able to…

Why ubuntu installer recommends so small boot partition?

I just run into no space with boot partition when I try to update / upgrade… I am curios why installer suggest so f*ing small boot partition when it then floods it with all the upgrade crap? Thanks Note: I left it small as suggested by installer because I expect it behaves same way like windows does with it’s 100MB hidden partition. It does not dump all the crap on it… Quite honestly I am…

Sound is not as loud as it should be

I dualbooted my late 2016 razer blade stealth and I noticed that the sound from the speaker wasn’t as loud as it should be compare to windows 10. I tried aslamixer and everything was already maxed out, then I installed pavucontrol and maxed that out but all it achieved was making an already low sounding speaker sound high with no upgrade to quality if that makes sense. Basically it still did not sound like it…
