I'm tried to install Zentyal 5.0 on a Lenovo T60 laptop. The installation went without problems but on the first reboot I can't get the display correctly : it is like the resolution is wrong, the image is scrambled/strongly skewed and slanted black areas cross the screen, nothing is readable.

The graphics card in this laptop is a ATI RADEON RV515 which should be supported by 16.04.2 and as a matter of fact Ubuntu 16.04.2 installs and runs flawlessly on this laptop.

Any help appreciated.


Added picture of screen.

Also wanted to mention that when during the first boot the screen perfectly ok with the zentyal logo, the moving dots and the message that the zentyal components were being loaded. Its is when it completed that that it all went pear-shaped

Additional information 30 May 2017:

1) the remote access and setup of the machine appears to work OK

2) I've installed Lubuntu 16.04.2 LTS on this laptop : this should be very close to the Zentyal configuration as it is based on LXDE as well. This works out of the box.

It is rather frustration to find no solution for this problem.


I'm using Zentyal 3.4.7 and I'm trying to send events using the jabber event dispatcher to my google talk / gmail account. So far it does not appear to work. My settings are as follows :

Jabber server :
Port : 5222
Username : <a username created on gmail for this purpose>
Administrator account : <my gmail / google talk address>

I know the <a username created on gmail for this purpose> is able to send messages to <my gmail / google talk address> when I use Xabber on my android phone where the settings are :

Server :
Custom host : checked (I understand as : use the 'Host' below instead of the 'Server' above)
Host :
Port : 5222
Resource : < I'm not sure what this is and I can't find a similar setting on Zentyal :
                  The value was filled in automatically >
Priority : 0
Use SASL Authentication : checked
TLS/SSL usage : require TLS
Use compression : not checked

I also tried to use the <a username created on gmail for this purpose> account on Ubuntu 14.04 Empathy as a jabber acount in Settings -> Online Accounts, but that did not work : I believe this is rather due to a bug in Empathy. It may also be due to the fact that I don't know what the value for the resource field should be.

Alternatively I'd use a real 'jabber' account but apparantly one can't register for a new account at

Even simpler I think would be an e-mail event dispatcher.

Any help on this is welcome.


I regularly use a sip/h323 voip. Until now I had a pc running debian and gnu gatekeeper on my 2nd internet connection. I would like to configure a zentyal 3.4 router on my 1st internet connection to achieve the same.

However, I don't seem to find documentation on how to configure asterisk on Zentyal 3.4. Is it still included ?
Alternatively is there a way to run gnu gatekeeper on the zentyal box (how do I need to configure the firewall) ?

Many thanks


Started playing with Zentyal communty edition and in the course of comming to a installation I was happy with I have created two server entries in the Zentyal Remote service which are now obsolete. In fact these configurations do not exist any longer so I cannot unregister them through the server setup.

So how do I remove these from the  Zentyal Remote service ?


Installation and Upgrades / Errors in ebox.log

browsing through /var/log/ebox/ebox.log I found a series of errors that seem to pertain the database for events :

Code: [Select]
2010/05/04 19:12:00 ERROR> EBox::PgDBEngine::insert - Error inserting data: INSERT INTO events ( source, leve

I guess these are bugs  in eBox-platform or is it something I configured wrongly ?


how can one keep the HTTP Proxy -> Filter Profiles -> (default) -> Domains filtering -> Domain list files updated through e.g. a cron script ? Or can it be done as a setting of eBox ?
