Off Topic / Linux Lite Twin?
« on: April 17, 2019, 11:44:14 PM »

Hi All,

Does Linux Lite have a twin? Not identical but similar in many areas. Take a look here and tell me what you think:

Installing Software / Re: Linux 4.15.0-24 generic kernel update
« on: July 05, 2018, 10:01:29 AM »

Hello All

For what it's worth it appears kernel 4.15.0-24 is causing similar problems for the Linux Mint people too. One post recommends going back to -23 or waiting for -25 (or better).

Hello again @whateverthing

Thank you again so much for all your hard work. The new batch (post #3) are indeed less bright and easier on the eyes. Note, it's a joke among my friends that my eyes are overly sensitive and become easily tired.

Hello to all. The Wallpaper Museum has been updated with final wallpaper choices for LL 4 Diamond. Have a look in the museum if you feel like taking a walk down memory lane.




The purpose of the enable command is to start a service automatically at boot, it's just not working in this situation. That's why I left the comment about this not being a permanent solution. I left it in the instructions hoping that as Ubuntu-18.04/LL4 improve over time it will start working on its own, eventually. In theory without issuing the enable command it will *never* start automatically and we might never know this even when any underlying issue has been fixed.

Installing Linux Lite / Re: Virtualbox Guest Shared Folders

I was able to reproduce this problem. I may have a partial solution. If you have time would you take a look here and let me know if this works?

Hi @whateverthing
I really like the first batch. The second batch are nice but too bright/colorful for my eyes.


This is not a permanent solution see last step below.

My test environment
Host: Win10 (sorry, I'm at work)
Software on host/Win10: Virtualbox 5.2
Software/guest additions on VM: pre-installed/stock version

Let's begin

Add a shared folder in the LL4 virtual machine

Start the virtual machine

On a working system these two services should be running
(systemctl | grep vbox)

On LL4 only one is running

We need to start the additional service
sudo systemctl start vboxadd-service.service
sudo systemctl enable vboxadd-service.service

If user is already a member of vboxsf group sharing should now be working:
> For me the share is listed in Thunar as sf_Downloads (/media/sf_Downloads/)
> An icon was not placed on the desktop

If user is NOT a member of vboxsf group they can be added to the group as follows:
(Note, you generally only need to do this step one time)
We need to add user to the vboxsf group (cli)
sudo adduser scott vboxsf
We need to add user to vboxsf group (graphical)
start > All > Linux Lite User Manager

Last step
Logout out and Log back in.

Note this will even work for the LL4 Live CD environment
Run terminal cmd

The answer on my system is - linux

Now just go through the steps above with user linux

When logging in/out the user is linux and the password is left empty (i.e. there is no password.)

Not a permanent solution:
For some reason this service is not starting automatically and these commands need to be run again after a reboot.
sudo systemctl start vboxadd-service.service
sudo systemctl enable vboxadd-service.service


Your enthusiasm makes me smile, happy we were able to fix the problem.


Hi 0bWAN

It looks like this is a known problem. Here's a link to Team Viewer 11 on Ubuntu 18.04 in the TeamViewer forum.



Hi Vera,

I was able to reproduce the problem, this seems to fix it:

1. Settings > Removable Drives and Media > Storage Tab > Uncheck the first three options:
   - Mount removable drives when hot-plugged
   - Mount removable media when inserted
   - Browse removable media when inserted

2. Logout out

3. Do this for all users

4. Test, does it work? After inserting the usb drive nothing much may appear to happen. In my case I went to the file manager and there it was.

5. Note, my usb drive has a fat format.

6. Note, I've only tested in LL4

Hi Barnaby

I went to the Rainlendar website here ( and found this under system requirements:

Linux System Requirements
Ubuntu 16.04 or newer (equivalent Linux distributions should work too).
32bit or 64bit operating system
20 MB of available hard disk space
1 GB of RAM or higher recommended
Window manager capable of showing transparent windows

The first line seems to indicate it may not be fully tested/compatible with Ubuntu 18.04 (yet) and - LL4 is based on Ubuntu 18.04.

Then I went to the Rainlendar forum here ( and noticed this post Ubuntu 18.04lts installation. It seems to indicate the installation problem you're experiencing could be a known issue. It also makes reference to possible additional threads on the issue but posted under different headings.

Hello mdiemer

I try running only one command line at a time, especially when I'm learning or not familiar with the commands in a new task. It slows the process and allows any output from each line to be studied more clearly.

Here are the commands from the LL 4.0 Release Announcement
sudo apt purge virtualbox*
sudo systemctl stop vboxadd.service
sudo systemctl stop vboxadd-service.service
sudo systemctl disable vboxadd.service
sudo systemctl disable vboxadd-service.service

Copy and paste one line in a terminal, hit enter, and go on to the next line until all lines are finished. Note any errors or output. If you have already run these commands doing it a second time shouldn't hurt anything.

Edit: Note, I forgot one step, please see post below this.
