Ubuntu Installation :: Getting Gnome-shell On 10.04 Beta Inside Virtualbox?

Apr 25, 2010

I have installed VirtualBox because I want to test out things like 10.04 and gnome-shell. I have downloaded an Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit .vdi from mininova (and so far I'm assuming that the downloaded file is good), and I've been tooling around with it a bit. It was a bit choppy at times, but that was probably because I was running several other things at the same time. My comp's stats are in my sig (only addressing 2.9 gigs of ram due to the 32-bit kernel), and I think that any choppiness was due to overloading the computer with other things. The proc temp also went to record highs, ~75 Celsius, iirc. The vm has been alloted 1 proc (out of 2) 512 ram.The problem I am having is that I wanted to install gnome-shell to try it out, but I get an error,

Code:

adminuser@adminuser-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
[sudo] password for adminuser:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

[code]...

So, I have xulrunner-1.9.2 already, so I tried to install 1.9.1 anyway, and it appeared to install, and I now have 1.9.1.9 and 1.9.2.3 installed, but trying to install libgsj0 results in the same error as above.

Ubuntu :: Still No Way To Test Gnome-shell In Virtualbox / Get That?

Jan 16, 2011

I've searched and read lots about trying to get gnome-shell to run in Virtualbox(v4) with no success on my end. Lots of the posts are outdated and are using Virtualbox 3.

So anyone have any tips or hints for testing the Gnome-shell? (I'd prefer to test in with 10.10 in Virtualbox 4, but am open to upgrading to 11.04 if necessary)

Software :: VirtualBox 2.1 On Fedora 64-bit Won't Install Windows 7 Beta 64-bit

Jan 10, 2009

I just downloaded the Windows 7 Public Beta 64-bit. I am running Fedora 10 64-bit with VirtualBox 64-bit version.

When I try to install Win7 from the .iso, I get an error that says: "Attempting to load a 64-bit application, however this CPU is not compatible with 64-bit mode."

This is bogus because VT-x is enabled in VirtualBox for this vm.

Has anyone installed 64-bit Vista (and/or the Win7 beta) with VirtualBox successfully?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From 10.04 Beta 1 To Beta 2?

Apr 4, 2010

So here's the schedule for 10.04:

April 8th, 2010 - Beta 2 release;
April 22nd, 2010 - Release Candidate;
April 29th, 2010 - Final release of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

If I have 10.04 beta 1, could I just continue to update and not have to burn another disk to install? Or do I have to burn the beta 2 and reinstall if I want it?

Software :: Fedora 15 Alpha Wont Install Inside VirtualBox 4.0.4

Mar 20, 2011

I am attempting to install Fedora 15 alpha in a virtual machine on Virtual Box 4.0.4 from Oracle uname -r returns this:[Gary@Fedora13 ~]$ uname -r 2.6.34.8-68.fc13.i686 This is a machine I built myself, 3.3g dual core processor and 6gigs of memory and two terabytes HD space.

I've already installed Ubuntu 10.10 in a VM on this PC without any problems. BTW I tried to install Windows XP in a VM and it always says no bootable medium found, not so worried about that now unless there's a quick fix.

The Fedora disk starts install routine like normal - example vmlinuz... and initrd.img... and then several things flash by on the screen. It always hangs on this - [ 2.7168291] [<c040377e>] ? kernel_thread_helper+0x6/0x10

One error message I received complained about permanently enabling I/O cache for the disk controller (I believe) but I did that and the error message hasn't returned.

Ubuntu :: 'set' Command In Terminal Has Shell Scripts Embedded Inside?

May 3, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 for some development. I was trying to set some environment variables are noticed that when I hit 'set' inside a terminal (to dump environment vars) I get the usual first few variables but then I see a whole lot of script code ....

Code:

WINDOWID=23068675
XAUTHORITY=/var/run/gdm/auth-for-sid-5IDovs/database
XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=/etc/xdg/xdg-gnome:/etc/xdg
XDG_DATA_DIRS=/usr/share/gnome:/usr/local/share/:/usr/share/

[code]....

I've installed a lot of tools (NetBeans, Ruby, Java, build-essentials etc) but essentially I installed Ubuntu today - so it shouldn't have rotted out this quickly. is this hijacking of environment vars to embed script code intentional with Ubuntu 10.04?

General :: Executing Shell Script With 654 Permissions Inside Another One

Apr 22, 2010

I have this scenario, where in I'm calling a shell script inside another shell script. The only criteria here is that the embedded script will have 654 permissions and the master script should be able to execute this embedded script. The sample code is given below:

#!/usr/bin/ksh
maindir=/usr/home01/temp/dir
bindir=${maindir}/batch/bin
${bindir}/test.ksh -d ${dblogin} -i ${datadir} -r ${filedt} > ${tmp_log}

The test.ksh which has 654 permissions is called by the main.ksh script and when I try to run it using ./main.ksh, it fails with the error "Execute permissions denied."

Ubuntu :: Switch Desktop Shell From Unity To Gnome-shell?

Apr 14, 2011

Is there any way I can switch my desktop shell from unity to, say, gnome-shell? I can switch using other console shell I like (bash, csh, fish, etc.). Assume that there is a stable alternative desktop shell, I should be able to choose, too.

(For console shell, we goes to /etc/passwd. But for desktop, I can't find the way to config.)

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Make Gnome-mplayer Recognize Commands Like "{a6}" Inside Srt Files On 11.3 - GNOME 2.30.2

Jan 10, 2011

I use gnome-mplayer 1.0.0 and Totem Movie Player 2.30.2 to view videos Both read subtitles well from srt files. But both are not able to read {a6} command in the srt files.

NOTE:- {a6} command serves the purpose of putting the subtitles on top of the screen, making it possible for subbers to display lyrics/additional footnotes on top, while at the same time, having the dialogues to show in their usual position.

Is there are way to force either of them to read the special commands properly?

Ubuntu :: Gnome / OpenOffice Lock-up When Scrolling Inside Documents

Feb 10, 2010

Thoroughly repeatably, OpenOffice locks up on me when scrolling inside documents. Here's the breakdown:

* Only happens when actively in the process of scrolling
* Doesn't matter if you use keyboard, mouse wheel, drag the scroll bar, or click the scroll arrows
* Always happens within 15 minutes of steady use
* Happens in both writer and calc -- haven't tested the others
* OOo freezes up and no longer repaints the window or responds to anything
* gnome-session peaks out at 100% CPU and stays there
* Currently running application continue to work fine
* Most applications (gnome-terminal, firefox, koffice) can no longer be launched
* Some applications (abiword) can still be launched
* Launching from icons brings up the spinner, but nothing else happens
* Launching a GUI app from a terminal, it looks like it runs on CLI, but nothing ever happens in the GUI proper
* X starts leaking descriptors and thus chewing up drive space at ~1M/s

Killing X and bringing up a new session puts everything back to normal, including CPU usage and drive space. This happens every time on my 64-bit Intel laptop and has persisted through several X/OpenOffice/kernel updates. It never happens on my 32-bit Intel desktop.

Ubuntu Installation :: Gnome Shell Replace Doesn't Work - No Application Launcher In Upper Left Hand Corner

Mar 4, 2010

So, supposedly Gnome Shell is available through synaptic. I just downloaded and installed it and then ran gnome-shell --replace. It doesn't work at all. I hit the windows key and get nothing and there is no application launcher in the upper left hand corner and Alt-f2 produces nothing at all. Alt-tab gives me the option of choosing the windows that were running when I ran gnome-shell --replace but nothing else works at all. Just a vast expanse of digital nothingness. Does anyone know why this might be? I have an nvidia video card (see sig below) and two monitors running from "twin view".

Ubuntu :: Gnome 3 Vs Gnome Shell Vs Unity?

Apr 28, 2011

Please excuse my ignorance, but I need to get it straight. I've been reading and trying to find out more about these three new desktop environments, but still am rather confused. I have had Unity on my netbook for a couple of months now and know it inside out (more or less by now). The problem is: what is the main difference between Gnome 3 and Gnome Shell?

To my understanding Gnome 3 will be a continuation of the panelled Gnome we are so used to? But then I read the panels will be gone forever, so I'm confused again Gnome Shell is somewhat similar-looking to Unity, but I haven't had a chance to try it properly yet.

Ubuntu :: No Sound In Skype Beta - Use Beta On Acer Aspire One With 10.10

Nov 27, 2010

I am trying to use Skype beta on my acer aspire one with ubuntu 10.10. The video runs brilliantly and i can also here my wife from the other end but she cannot hear me. Apparently something is fishy with my mic input. I tried alsamixer and everything is in unmute. My alsa version is 1.0.23. The only think she hears is a loud hissing noise which is normally my bat voice but she doesnt need to know that. I can record my voice in the sound recorder but nothing comes out in Skype!

Ubuntu Installation :: Lubuntu 10.04 Ludid Lynx Beta Installation ?

Jan 14, 2010

I have a LiveCD of the Lubuntu Lucid 10.04 Beta. First, I will say, I'm extremely impressed with Lubuntu. It's incredibly lightweight, pretty intuitive to use, and very pretty when compared to other distros of comparable weight (eg, MEPISLite, wattOS etc.) The only problem is that when I click "Install Lubuntu," NOTHING HAPPENS. Is it just because it's the Beta?
