My mom just switched from Comcast to Clear 4G Mobile Internet service and I don't know how to get this working on a Ubuntu 10.04 system. The Clear installation USB only gives me two options: Windows Users and Mac OS X Users. I was wondering if the Linux WiMax driver would be instrumental in having Clear work on my Ubuntu 10.04 system. From this website: [URL]..
However, if there are no other options, we do have 10 days to back out of the contract.I'm a dim light bulb when it comes to these things. If I didn't provide enough info, just let me know!
i have xterminus installed. i also have a white block over the first letter in my username and when i begin typing, the 'block-type cursor' just leaves full white spaces behind and i cannot read my text at all. even when i delete back over the white spaces, they stay whited out.
I installed compiz on squeeze. I followed the steps on [url] , everything seems fine except my gnome-terminal shows me a white-in-white screen, seems like both the background and foreground are white, I tried to change the gnome-terminal profile, it doesn't work, after I disable compiz, gnome-terminal back to normal. I tried to install xterm, it can work, but it not easy to use for me, I still want to use gnome-terminal,

I just want to tell everyone how good the Garmin/Asus A10 mobile phone is as an internet modem.I am in Australia and Mobile internet is an expensive thing to have. cheapest is dodo but i had a few problems trying out a friends usb modem.Anyway i was in the market for a Gps phone and discover this one. it is Android phone and pretty cheap so far it is very good gps, camera, mp3, and phone is excellent.BUT here is the clincher. when you plug it into the computer, the phone screen lights up and gives you 3 options.
In a dual Vista (pre-installed) - Fedora boot, I have run into a curious issue, that leads into a crash-causing memory fault when attempting to boot live CDs. After Dell technical support (inspiron 1720 laptop) confirmed (beyond doubt) that the problem is caused by the HD and not the memory chips as thought initially, they recommended reformatting the HD and re-installing everything from scratch. Since this is obviously a painful and costly (time- and data-wise) solution, I would like to see whether it might work to clear out the MBR, reinstall it from the Vista recovery CD, and then re-install GRUB somehow. Since this is an "in-principle" cure at present, I would like to seek wisdom and guidance here with respect to whether this approach makes sense and how it should be implemented.
I opened firefox and it restored some ~15 windows I had open last time I rebooted. The problem is that for each window it opened it gave me a notification that it's ready, and now they won't go away. I know that I could simply remove them one by one, but that's a bit tedious and I really want to know if there's a faster way to clear all notifications when I'm not intending to look at any of them.
Here's what's happening at the bottom of my screen: I just find it really annoying because it pops up every time I accidentally touch the bottom edge of the desktop.
How do I clear the list of recent documents in Fedora 15 Gnome 3? There were a few files that I've already deleted from the system, but when I search for them, they still appear under the 'Recent Documents' list. This is proving to be a bit of a privacy nightmare.
Recently I have upgraded from Fedora 13 to Fedora 14 using preupgrade. Everything is working fine except menus on Gnome desktop. Sometimes menus are not cleared. They just hang on the desktop infinitely.
The mingetty --noclear parameter is failing with my current Fedora 13 installation. In the past this parameter would inhibit the clearing of the screen before prompting for the login name on the console. At present even with the parameter it clears the screen.
My /etc/inittab (which always worked past versions) contains:
Can someone tell me if I might be doing something wrong, or was this parameter dropped in the current version? Does anyone know of a workaround?
I understand the security purpose of the clear screen. But the particular computer is in a secured location. I prefer to look at the content of the previous screen for debugging and other chores.
I run lastb every now and again to see who is trying to p0wn my box and it dates back to november 08. how do i clear these entries to i can get a more update view? or if you know a way i can do a 'more' or something so the IP's are not flying by that would be cool too!
I just installed F9 and updated to F11 (fedora 11) and I updated the system because I couldn't get the media player working and then I installed all these packages for two days. I have tried yum clear cache and the rpm update. Here are some of the ones I tried: rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db* yum update PackageKit ; yum clean all;
And this is the error: Error Type: <type 'exceptions.TypeError'> Error Value: 'NoneType' object is unsubscriptable File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 2280, in <module> main() File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 2277, in main backend.dispatcher(sys.argv[1:]) File : /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/packagekit/backend.py, line 600, in dispatcher self.dispatch_command(args, args[1:]) File : /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/packagekit/backend.py, line 508, in dispatch_command self.get_updates(filters) File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 1743, in get_updates self._check_init() File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 1965, in _check_init self.yumbase.repos.doSetup() File : /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/repos.py, line 71, in doSetup self.ayum.plugins.run('postreposetup&apos File : /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/plugins.py, line 178, in run func(conduitcls(self, self.base, conf, **kwargs)) File : /usr/lib/yum-plugins/rpm-warm-cache.py, line 32, in postreposetup_hook cmd = commands
It seems there is a problem with Chromium with not clearing out some cache such that if you go from one site with a css file to another site with a similar named css file, the old css file remains - go to options and clear out all browser stuff and everything is okay.is there a way to automatically clear out settings when the browser is closed like the Firefox option to do this ?
I've been trying to install Fedora 10 Core to a new my machine. The live CD appears to boot, but once I get beyond the selection stage (installing or running Fedora from the disk first), I invariably get a fully white screen. Nothing I've tried to do changes this. Although I'm reasonably experienced with the command line, I've never tried to do a GUI-less install of a full OS, and am unsure how/if to begin with Fedora. Any suggestions for either fixing the white screen of death, and/or installing from the command line would be a big help.
I wanted to try F10 today so I downloaded the Fedora 10 64 Bit LiveCD but for some reason after it's done loading (the three colored loading bar), it hangs on a white screen with no sign of my computer thinking (no HDD LED activity and no CD ROM activity indicators flashing). Any clue how I could test the LiveCD without having to install Fedora (with text or otherwise..)? For the record, I have a 4870 1GB graphics card. I'm assuming that's fully supported, right?
I'm on a Dell notebook with Radeon Xpress 200M just upgraded from F11 to F12 and began to have white screen issues, immediately. At the beginning of boot screen went to white, hard drive activity but no control. Upon several retries and hooking up an external VGA, I managed to get display on both the external and LCD, i think in twin mode -- I then disconnected the VGA, and the LCD was OK ... until the next reboot: the LCD started going to white screen just before the GUI login, while the VGA remained viewable. Then, for no apparent reason, it would now and then go to white at the very beginning of the boot, then, again, just before the login. Also, looking at the external, it appeared that the system was thinking it had two displays working in extended desktop mode (cursor and windows would spill over to the left of the VGA screen)
"xrandr --output LVDS --mode 1280x800" caused both displays to go black momentarily, then each would come back to the state it was in -- VGA to viewable display, and the LVDS to white screen. Subsequent xrandr didn't appear to trigger anything.
tried "system-config-display", to no avail. Removing the "xorg.conf" doesn't help. Tried several reboots, including into text mode, nothing worked (it's bewildering that it worked the first time an external was hooked up, but not many subsequent times)Hooked up a different external, played around with settings, then another xrandr command did finally bring back the LVDS ! (whether the LVDS is a white screen or is working, xrandr reports it is connected.) I apologize for posting this question without exhausting all possible combinations and scenarios -- i've already lost three hours this morning (and troubleshooting with rebooting ultimately leads to forced file-system checks (long waits) for those of us with ext3 still). It is reasonable to predict that although the LVDS is working at the moment, the problem is not fixed, since it worked and then stopped working before.
Also, nothing like this ever happened with this machine before -- F9 through F11 (also, Windows Vista has normal display)
I'm upgraded F13 to F14 and now all the GTK+ apps have this "white end" style in the menu. My question is, is that the new GTK+ style or is something wrong? [URL] I'm using KDE in F14 with QtCurve style for GTK+ apps.
I have a Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DS5 with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 and 4GB RAM. The MoBo does not have embedded video. My main video card is a Diamond Radeon HD3650 PCIe. I was unable to initially install F 10 as the screen would blank out (Black Screen) after it would start Anaconda. I attempted to boot using the suggested option of nomodeset with no change of symptoms. I then switched out to an older PCI video card (NVIDIA GeForce FX5200) and was able to go through the install. Now I am attempting to switch back to my preferred card (HD3650) and just before the GDM screen appears the screen goes to solid white and no ability to switch to another VT. I have been unsuccessful at finding any workarounds for this. I thought the issues were with the older proprietary chipsets pre open source of ATI which was supposedly older than the R500 series, but I guess I'm wrong.
complete trying newbie trying to get to grips with linux. Tried ubuntu and didnt like that so someone suggested fedora. I'm having the same problem I had with ubuntu, I get a white screen when trying to load the graphical install after the media test. On ubuntu this was solved by selecting simple graphics mode. Here I have tried the following commands during install with still no luck
The text install just freezes after selecting the keyboard layout so that does not even work. Tried searching for forums but only solutions I could find where the previous.
I just did a clean installation of Fedora 12 on my Intel Core2 Duo system. I installed packages to use compiz fusion. When I select the Compiz Fusion Icon option from the System Tools menu, my screen goes white, and I have to SSH into the system and reboot it
I'm running Fedora 13 (64-bit) on a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with integrated Intel graphics (lspci reports it as: 00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)), and am having a strange problem with watching iPlayer in fullscreen.The video will work fine in the web browser at default size, and most times even in fullscreen as well, but sometimes on switching it to fullscreen the entire screen goes white with only the cursor visible. The sound keeps on playing and the cursor responds to mouse movements but I haven't been able to do anything to fix the screen (I tried bringing up a terminal and logging out, as well as doing a "compiz --replace" but neither had any visible effect - obviously I may have typed them wrong since the screen was white, but I tried multiple times). As mentioned above, I am using Compiz desktop effects, and also had to check the "Unredirect Fullscreen Windows" box in CCSM to get iPlayer to play video in fullscreen in the first place.
The annoying thing is that I haven't been able to consistently reproduce the error, in that sometimes it takes multiple attempts of going fullscreen and/or videos for it to occur. However, it has been pretty consistent in that it has only taken a couple of different videos to be played for it to happen (oddly I don't think I've had it happen on the first fullscreen attempt of the first video yet, but that might not mean anything).
On attempting to load GNOME 3 with Gnome shell, the screen fades to white, stalls for a minute, then gives an error and asks to log out. "Classic Gnome with Compiz" has numerous graphical glitches such as the background not refreshing (think Windows 95), among other things. How can I get GNOME Shell working again?
Gnome shell and classic gnome load fine under other users.
