Ubuntu Installation :: Missing Half Of HD After Partitioning

Jun 19, 2010

I recently upgraded from XP to Kubuntu, and I noticed that during partitioning (during installation) I could only partition 80GB out of the 160GB I should have.

df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 71G 2.8G 64G 5% /
none 719M 296K 718M 1% /dev
none 723M 0 723M 0% /dev/shm
none 723M 92K 723M 1% /var/run
none 723M 0 723M 0% /var/lock
none 723M 0 723M 0% /lib/init/rw
none 71G 2.8G 64G 5% /var/lib/ureadahead/debugfs
/dev/sdb1 7.1G 5.8G 964M 86% /media/disk

sudo fdisk -l | grep Disk
Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000ed7ef
Disk /dev/sdb: 8004 MB, 8004132864 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000a154d

Also, at Grub there are several old Ubuntu selections from a previous install I did a long time ago; not the next oldest 1 or 2 Kubuntu versions, older Ubuntu versions.

Ubuntu :: Half Of My Desktop Is Missing / Get Full?

Jul 17, 2010

My desktop has been shifted about half way to the right and a "black hole" has been left. I'm not sure how else to describe this, so I will include a picture to try to make things clearer:

I have no idea how I have done this. The Android SDK Emulator is the only thing I have downloaded and played with recently. I've checked monitor settings, changed the background image, adjusted the number of desktops (all desktops are affected), logged out & back in and rebooted. I'm not sure where else to look. Googling hasn't given me any more clues so far.

Everything else is working fine. Windows will open up normally and cover up the "black hole". Although they do leave an after-image, particularly when you move them around - like a 70s video clip!

Ubuntu :: When Computer Boots Half Of Panel Icon Goes Missing?

Oct 1, 2010

Sometimes when I boot my computer the icons on the panel (pieces of them) are missing. Like half of my wireless just the mail icon from the indicator applet half the trash can or show desktop or just the power button from the indicator applet session. After I log out and log back in either once or twice that usually fixes it. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with gnome 2.30.2.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Half Is In English And Half In Another Language After Upgrading To 10.04

May 27, 2010

I just upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 and so far I have those problems:

1. Before, everything in my system was in English. Now, half is in English, half in another language (PCManFM, some menus etc). I tried setting up Language Support but it changes nothing.

2. Cursor themes work only when hovering the mouse over "X" buttons in the right top corner of the window. As soon as I move the mouse somewhere else, it goes back to default cursor theme, even though I tried selecting 5 different themes - same result.

4. Hibernation don't work anymore. s2disk saves image to disk and then it resumes it but computer stops on text message along the lines of "Resume completed successfully".

5. Changing volume with keyboard shotcuts no longer works.

6. Smplayer does not display picture anymore when playing movies. The view is just empty. I can only hear the soundtrack. It is using XV filter.

7. PCmanFM that used to worked flawlessly, now after going into 1 or 2 subdirectories stops reacting to clicks on file/folder list. Need to open new instance to be able to do anything and this again would become unusable after visiting 1-2 folders.

Fedora :: F13 Crashes On Half Of Boots / Resolve This?

Jun 12, 2010

Hello everyone. I switched over to Fedora a little while ago, maybe a month or two, towards the end of when 12 was out. 12 ran just fine, but around when I upgraded to 13 I started experiencing issues. I first upgraded by switching repositories and installing via yum, which seemed to run fine for awhile. However, came to the point where about every other boot (a little more often, actually), the system would crash at the login screen, not allowing me to login. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace or other rescue keys don't work- in fact, if the mouse is still working, they freeze the pointer as well.

Finally I decided to get the 13 DVD and re-install. Downloaded, media checked out, ran the install... and I'm still having the same issues. I know I should be providing more info here, but I'm not sure what log files to look for and post here. A few notes of relevance are that I've tried changing the ACPI settings in my BIOS to be as compatible as possible, and also tried booting using noacpi, which doesn't seem to be fixing it- I also have Nouveau installed.

So, what should I do? Anything I need to provide to help troubleshoot, I'll gladly do.

Fedora Installation :: Stuck Half Way Through Install / Get Full?

Apr 17, 2010

I bought a new issue of Linux Format magazine and saw it had a bootable disk with Fedora installer/live DVD on it which I was eager to try out "The worlds most advanced Linux distro" I put the DVD in my computer and rebooted it. I selected 'install or upgrade'. It started to load (blasting white text at me). I skipped the media test but then the screen was black and reacted to no mouse moving or keyboard pressing. Not even the OFF button, so I pressed RESET and selected 'install with basic video driver' this time it worked. It didn't fill my whole screen like many 'basic video drivers' but they don't cut off much so I was willing to forgive Fedora using one it was proberly only for the install anyway I could download a new one after. I have a Radeon HD 4200 (extreamly crap) intergrated into the north bridge. I can't afford an expensive graphics card. I build it myself so I can tell you what parts it's got if needed. Anyway I progressed through the setup without problems until I got to the partitionor which defaulted to 'Replace existing Linux system' this would delete Ubuntu an maybe Windows 7. I changed it to custom layout or something like that. It started a partitioner and I remembered I wanted to give ubuntu 30GB more room so I resized it. I created a new 50 GB logical partition and select it as the '/' partition, plenty more space for future Linux distributions. Here's the real problem. Soon after I hit install it said some repositorys require a network connection. It had only one option 'eth0' my motherboard has built in Ethernet but I connect to the net with a wifi card I do not have a cable long enough to reach this computer on the other side of the room. So how was I suppost to continue the setup? I pressed okay hoping it would give up and let me continue the setup but it didn't it said they was an error connecting to the Internet therefore setup could not continue. With only one option: 'Exit Installer'. GRRRR. Interestingly enough after I clicked it the disk drive's light kept flashing but the screen went black forcing me to reboot. Can anyone help me so I can install "The worlds most advanced Linux distribution"*

Fedora :: Fedora 15 Cut Battery Life In Half

Jun 30, 2011

So I just installed F15 and I really like it. I had to upgradde to kernel version to get my wireless from disconnecting -- aparentlyey it is a bug in kernels 2.6.38.x .Now my problem, and it was also a problem with kernel 2.6.38.x, is that my battery life on my netbook (gateway LT2320, atom n450 @1.6, gma 3150, 1gb ram, 1024x600) is cut by half. I used to get 7-8 hours of battery life, with Crunchbang, Ubuntu, etc., but now i get 4.5 hours.I have read that this is a problem with the current kernels available after 2.6.37.x.

My question is have they found a fix? Are we going to have to wait for 2.6.31? How much longer until that kernel is in the fedora repositories?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Keep Getting Logged Out Within Half Second

Oct 24, 2010

I am quite new to this ubuntu business, but i like what I'm seeing so far. Well, almost everything that I'm seeing. I seem to have run into a tricky problem with xubuntu 10.04. I was in the process of customizing my desktop appearance (via Xfce4 Settings manager), and I found a nice theme to go with (dusk I think it was called). I then went on to change the window settings and starting from the bottom most option I browsed the various styles. After a few of these my computer decided to log me out quite suddenly, and I was prompted to login.

This is where the problem is: I type in my password and it logs me in for maybe a half a second only to log me out again. No matter how many times I put in the password I keep getting logged out. So now I'm running xubuntu 10.04 off a pendrive that was used in its initial installation. Is there any way to log back in and stay logged in long enough to undo the window styling at fault? I had put in quite a bit of work migrating files, installing all sorts of things and setting up fancy launchers, and I would prefer not to have to redo it again.

Ubuntu :: AMD CPU Runs At Less Than Half Speed?

Jun 9, 2010

I have a machine currently running Debian Lenny on which I would like to run Ubuntu for the driver support in its newer kernel. However, I did a test boot from the installation CD and it appears to be running at less than half its rated speed. This is the output from the Debian kernel:

brendand@kant:~$ uname -a
Linux kant 2.6.26-2-amd64 #1 SMP Wed May 12 18:03:14 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
brendand@kant:~$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor: 0


Maybe this is some sort of power save bug where the CPU speed is incorrectly scaled back. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Should I report it as a bug, and, if so, how do I do that?

Ubuntu :: DVD Burner - Half Dvd Blank

May 13, 2011

Finally got around to buying a DVD player so i put 3 old Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns on one dvd and it plays fine on the computer. However , when played on the tv-dvd player only one movie ( the last one on the dvd ) would play . I did not use a 3rd party converter app as the dvd player advertised that it would play standard avi movies. I burned with Brassero and noted that half the dvd was still blank if that's relative .

I'm having a problem with the terminal. When I type it only shows the bottom half of the letters. When I highlight what I typed or when I resize the window, it then shows both top and bottom half. So, basically I can't read what I'm typing until I go back and re-highlight it. I don't know if this is relevant but I'm using ubuntu 9.10 and I have an Nvidia graphics card.
