    Please remove the account I'm posting with, as I'd like to continue using the original account and username

  • Issue#289577: troubleshoot logging in from hacking issue to PayPal Account

    Hello, my name is Roger and I have trouble logging in my paypal account for some reason. When I enter my password I get an message from security I believe regarding a time and date, location that an unauthorized activity occured on my front page of Paypal. The security questions will not work also information about getting a pin number from paypal does not work either. I also had to call the agent at paypal and receive instructions of how to get rid of the annoying unauthorized message from security information of a hacking issue. When I called Paypal using the 800 number. The agent instruct me to renew my password, which I did and I still does not work. My last option is attaching my Drivers License photo to gain access to Paypal. To let you know I don't own my own computer. I use the public computer in the library. Can anyone in the PayPal community relate with my problem here and can give me a solution without judgeing my actions because I do not know what to do in this circumstance

  • Issue#435546: Ubuntu - updating issue E: The package mcp-account-manager-uoa needs to be reinstalled, but I

    Dear all first things first, apologies if what i am posting has a trivial solution. I have tried to find out a way out but i haven't succeeded. I have a laptop (Acer aspire V3-571G) with a biolinux distro based on Ubuntu 14.04. I haven't accessed my linux partition for a good while, and today i tried to log in and give it an update for those files requiring a new version. I had first a problem with repositories, as some that i used to have did not work anymore. Finally, when those which did not work anymore were fixed, i was left with this error: (both after sudo apt-get update and/or sudo apt-get dist-upgrade) E: The package mcp-account-manager-uoa needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it. I can't seem to find a way around this issue. Is it a big problem? Can i just forget about it? Is it stopping my computer from fully updating? I found this page but i'm not entirely sure about how to decypher it Thanks in

  • Issue#458231: [ubuntu] After logging in Unity does not show up in one user account

    Ubuntu 14.04.4 I can log in to Guest account and everything works normally. If I log in to the main user account, the password is accepted, but I only get a default background wall paper, and no Unity. I can log in using the tty shell, and everything seems fine, except of course there will be no unity. I have searched for similar posts, and have found many, but I believe my case is unique in that logging into Guest if fine, with the problem arising only if I log into the main user account. As far as I am aware, this problem has not arisen as a consequence of updating, or setting up and customising user interface. Any help please.

    Hello moderators, Having been away for the forums for while (4 years!) I'm back and here to stay.

  • Issue#2164: Ubuntu - VPN issue (Astrill)

    So weird issue here... Trying out Kubuntu for the first time (15.04) and as I live in China I need a VPN to access, well, anything useful. Astrill works fine at first, went to their site, downloaded the deb and installed it and it works fine except for one thing: It only works with the account I was using when I installed it. I installed it using my Admin account, and then switched to a regular user account, no luck. If I launch it, the icon bounces like it's launching and then nothing. I tried launching it with a second admin account..same thing. If I reinstall it in the second account, it launches but then the original account cannot use it. So basically, any time I wish to switch accounts I need to reinstall the package? That's weird. Anyone heard of anything like this before? FWIW, I have had similar issues with various codecs. Video plays fine, but only for the account that I used to install the media player with. (mainly for SMplayer) Help?

  • Issue#19807: Ubuntu - performance issue woth 15.10

    Hi, i just recently got a new HD and installed 15.10 but it is incredibly slow. The widows take about 3-5 seconds to appear and the text is way behind what I am typing...and I am a terrible typer..... heres my set up: Intel Pentium 4 3 Gz 4 GB ram Gforce 5200 wired connection I have tried many installs over the past 3 days and cannot get the problem solved. The closest I got was installing the LXDE on top of 15;10 and it seemed to work ok, but some of the panel buttons would not work. Namely the shutdown/restart...I tried some fixes, got it royally jacked up, installed yet again. Obviously I am not an advanced user, but it seems from what I have read that this setup should run 15 ok. I think there is an issue with the video card (see, told ya) as well as the driver for the processor. (It was spiking 85-100 while I was just looking for answers online). I am not gaming on this, I just wanted to use this old box for something fun and useful -- it is now the opposite of both....

  • Issue#20915: [ubuntu] Audio-CD playback issue

    I've recently installed Ubuntu 16.04 from the daily releases. Largely all is good, but one noticeable problem is playing audio CDs: there is an audible, strong "buzz" through which some aspects of the expected music can faintly -- and choppily -- be heard. I've tried this both with Rhythmbox and Goobox with the same results. FLAC files etc. play back without problem, and normal audio playback from other sources (system sounds, YouTube videos etc.) is fine, so it's not a general audio problem, but something specific to do with CDs. I'm not sure what could be wrong, or which package I should report a bug against -- could anyone advise? My system is a ThinkPad T420 with a built-in CD/DVD player (can look up further details if that would be useful). Thanks in advance for any advice/feedback.
