I just wanted to thank you for finding this and everyone else who contributed to this thread.I was on the brink of extracting hair from my skull before I found this. Thankfully my scalp reamins warm and that's all thanks to this thread :-)
Same problem exists in Ubuntu 17.04 (I'm using Kubuntu). Thankfully, olejon's answer worked like a charm! Thank you!
Worked perfectly!! Thanks for sharing!
I have updated my post. It also works on Ubuntu 16.10 and 17.04.
Still work well !
thank you so much. that fixed my issue right up. i love the linux community cause it's so underrrated with so much support where as windows it's a headache that you never find out a solution.
