Hello World,

 

After receiving the pcduino3 nano I tried the ubuntu 12 NAND version that was factory installed and it worked without apparent problems. But I wanted the latest version and installed "pcduino3_ubuntu14_full_livesuit_GMAC_20141228" with a uSD card (pnoenixcard v309) on the NAND.

The problems persisted after I made a new uSD card and wrote it to the NAND.

 

1 - I cannot shutdown / reboot in the GUI. It tells  me: gdbus.error org.freedesktop.dbus.error.accessdenied shutdown

 

2 - I cannot find the synaptic package manager.

 

Do you have any suggestion what is going on? Should I reinstall ubuntu 14 again with a different uSD card? Is it normal that synaptic is not available with this version of ubuntu?

 

With kind regards

 

Paul

Have you tried the previous version? It won't fix the GUI shutdown issue but it might help with the others.

I just reinstalled ubuntu 12. Using the same u-sdcard in combination with an usb-stick. That solved my 2 problems. I now have synaptic package manager again and I can shutdown without the earlier error.

Still I would have like to have ubuntu 14 running without errors.

Hi,

As i later saw, the image i used was the beta ubuntu 14 image. I then flashes the new ubuntu. 14 image. But i still Cannot find synaptic in this version. Shutting down is wording most of the time how.
But i do get an error when using board-config.sh. I Cannot set iT to start up in CLI. It gives an error i Cannot see, iT shows à microsecond.
Could you check if you get. the same errors?

Synaptic is missing ??
Here is the solution to add synaptic.
 
1. First of all , connect to Ethernet.
  Click to start: "Wicd Network Manager" Icon on desktop
  Select Wired network and check to Use as default profile.
  Click Connect button.
  Confirm if ip address appears at bottom status line.
  Otherwise click properties button and change to other parameters and try again.
 
2.  Install synaptic from lxterminal
  $sudo apt-get update
  $sudo apt-get install -y synaptic
 
3. Edit  synaptic.desktop
$sudo apt-get install nano
$sudo nano /usr/share/applications/synaptic.desktop
Change Exec= line :
from: Exec=synaptic-pkexec 
    to: Exec=gksudo synaptic
Save and exit.
 
----------------
Shutdown method 
 
1. Edit lxde-logout.desktop
 
$sudo nano /usr/share/applications/lxde-logout.desktop
 
Edit Exec= line :
from: Exec=lxde-logout 
    to: Exec=gksudo lxde-logout
Save and exit.
 
Shutdown method is:
Click shutdown icon -> Select logout -> Click Quit-icon -> Select Shutdown
 
The other easy way to logout is:
$sudo board-config.sh -> set keyboard -> Select keyboard model -> AltGr->ComposeKey->
Use Control+alt+Backspace to terminate  the X server -> Select [Yes]
 
After this setting, shutdown method is :
Ctrl+alt+bs ->Click Quit-icon -> Select Shutdown
 
2. use command in lxterminal or make desktop-icon of
 $sudo shutdown -h now

Thanks for posting the patches I ran into the same problems when installing new ubuntu 14 image.  The problem I am having mow is that the packager is asking for a password.  I have tried linaro, ubuntu and other things like changing the password in board-config which seems to error out.  I aso couldn't find   /usr/share/applications/lxde-logout.desktop needed for the shutdown.  The ctrl/alt/backspace whure works slick.   So my

 

questions are:

1) what is the password?

2) where is  lxde-logout.desktop located?  

3) Is there a easy way to search for files in the system?

 

It appears that board config is not configured properly as it errors on many commands?

The first app I install after reflash is a program called catfish. File search program.

1) what is the password?
   Root password for linaro ubuntu is linaro.
 
2) where is  lxde-logout.desktop located?  
   Start filemanager: Click right button of Startbutton , or Startbutton->Other->PCManFM 
   If filemanager is showing places, click "Places"->click Radiobutton of "Directory Tree" to change Directory showing.
   Location of "lxde-logout.desktop" is  /usr/share/applications/lxde-logout.desktop
   Click Usr in directory tree->Click share->Click applications
 
3) Is there a easy way to search for files in the system?
   Use the above filemanager 
   Tools manu->Find Files (Shift+Ctrl+F)
   When you search from root / , it takes several minutes  with ClockIcon. It is recommended to specify the search directory.
 
You can download Ubuntu manual "Getting started with Ubuntu 14.04"
 
Lxde wiki is here

Ubuntu 14 will not shut down.

See post 7 above.

Edit  synaptic.desktop

Change Exec= line :
from: Exec=synaptic-pkexec 
    to: Exec=gksudo synaptic
Save and exit.

 

If you know Ubuntu you know that you can't edit system files.
It takes an hour searching to find "sudo edit".
But that does not work on this machine.
Every one but me knows you open up a terminal window and type "sudo leafpad" then hunt down the system file to edit.  
Hope this helps the next uneducated person like me.

I replied to your discussion and gave you step by step instructions and now I see you posting here when kiyo was the one that posted the solution in the first place. We fix bugs because others post how they repaired it.

In case someone still needs it (and did not see this before), there is a video on how to solve shutdown issue on Lubuntu 14.

 "session required pam_systemd.so"

There is the line in lxdm that should say like that, but it says:

 "seesion required pam_systemd.so" .

Mind the syntax error in SEESION

God knows how many of those there are in there...

And if you correct the syntax error does it work then?

I am afraid I do not understand your issue. That is what you're supposed to do and that is the desired result. This does not solve the issue in the video?
