I have a Dell 1525 and I just installed Ubuntu on it. The Multimedia keys (previous, stop, play/pause, next) and volume control keys (mute, increase, decrease) buttons aren't working at all. Is there anyway I can get them to work?
I'm not sure how to describe this because no-one else on the internet seems to have had anything even vaguely resembling this problem. I'm trying to install wxPython for openSUSE 11.3 (which seems to be called python-wxGTK which is fine). I don't think it's a problem with that particular package because I seem to remember something going wrong ages ago, the last time I installed something, but it didn't affect that particular install so I paid no notice. I'm sorry, that was a really vague statement and won't help anyone in the slightest. Anyway, the reason I think that event was relevant is that ever since then my Gnome menus have been out of sync - the new package I installed didn't appear on the menu.
Anyway, onto actual useful stuff. Just as a test case (to see that nothing was wrong with wxPython) I installed another small application with zypper (just the standard sudo zypper install moneyplex). zypper didn't complain at all and as far as I know it went perfectly.
I tried many different ways to get a screen shot (gnome's tool, gimp, compiz plugin, xwd, import) and in all of them the screenshot was filled with jagged colored bars. I tried both with and without compiz and the same thing happened. I'm using gnome with fedora 11.
I don't remember changing any settings but i've noticed lately things like ctrl+P and ctrl+C and alt+tab just don't work, at all.... it's rather annoying actually... is there any way to re-enable hotkeys?
I upgraded to 11.04 and my mouses just stopped working. I have to use the keyboard for everything. My internet isn't working either Linksys WUSB600N v2 like it was before. I have tried 2 mouses and none of them work. They work on my laptop though.
I noticed that the official Slackware packages don't contain static libraries. The SlackBuild scripts from slackbuilds.org or from Slackware DVD usually contain --disable-static option to prevent building the .a file. And if configure script doesn't allow such option, the .a file is deleted before the package is created.I am wondering what is the reason for that? Is it just the matter of conserving disk space? Are there also other reasons?
My compiz animations (magic lamp, airplane, ...) aren't working.I have an Intel GMA 4500M onboard but that shouldn't be the problem (I can enable effects from System > Preferences > Appearance).I'm using ubuntu 10.04.
i created a directory in my webserver as well as a group "webdevs" which I want to give write permissions to, and include my user so that i can edit.i used [addgroup webdevs] then [adduser MYUSER webdevs].then [sudo chown root:webdevs MYDIR]then [sudo chmod 774 MYDIR]when I try to cd to MYDIR under MYUSER, I get permission denied.
I had the "set-cap" exception problem, so when the fix was released, I updated. Since then, the ubuntuone-preferences dialog will not start or work. I tried the me bar, the system menu, and the CLI.Now, I bought some music the first day the store opened and it downloaded fine. Then yesterday I bought another album and the store hangs on "downloading the files." Six hours later, it still won't move.
It gets weirder. The music store says its trying to download a couple of tracks from the first album (even though they are already downloaded), the second album shows up as downloaded under the Web UI, but doesn't show up at all on my desktop .ubuntuone folder.I've tried the IRC a couple of times, with no response. (In fairness, it may have been bad timing, I'm in New York) I don't mind trying to sort this out myself, but I'd just like some more hints. I've looked at the syncd log and found the exception, but I don't know how else to restart the syncd. At the same time, my files *are* synching, and *one* of my address books is synching (my gmail account contacts aren't). I know this is alot at once, but I'm afraid of dividing the problem and missing something.
videos videos work great, but unfortunately, when i try to access videos on hulu.com, i receive this error message: "we're sorry but we're unable stream this video to your system. this may be due to an adobe software limitation on 64-bit linux systems."
this is strange because hulu videos were working after i installed lynx but mysteriously stopped working. i don't have the swfdec-mozilla package installed nor the mozilla-plugin-gnash nor the flashplugin-installer.
what do i need to do to start clean and install the necessary packages?
I get messages saying packages are missing from packman I have the repo enabled it seems to complain a lot about libxine1, here's one of the error messages
Code: Retrieving package libxine1-188.8.131.52-1.pm.25.1.x86_64 (1/19), 2.3 MiB (5.8 MiB unpacked) Retrieving: libxine1-184.108.40.206-1.pm.25.1.x86_64.rpm [error] File './x86_64/libxine1-220.127.116.11-1.pm.25.1.x86_64.rpm' not found on medium 'http://packman.jacobs-university.de/suse/11.2/
I have recently installed 11.2 on my laptop and am having problems with installing flashplayer. What happens is I go to install software, select flashplayer to be installed, click apply and the stupid things starts downloading all the upgradable programs. I have not selected any of these to be upgraded as I only have 600mb of downloading left to last me 10 days and won't waste it on upgrading. Is there a reason for the package manager installing programs that aren't selected?? Is there a way to use Install Software without this happening??
i wanted to migrate from ubuntu (still sux since 2008) i removed the main partition (/) and mounted the old home partition as a home partition for the new installation (kinda dumb, but still my files aren't deleted) anyway, the gnome desktop sux, it looks like the regular gnome desktop and not the one i used to use in gnome, how to change that
I dont have a internet connection and I want to install VLC. I want to create a local repo for a vlc by downloading all the required packages. I tried to do by downloading all the packages from from VLC repo and create a local repo but failed. Its say this dependency failed and that dependency failed. i tried to manually install each and every dependency but still the problem exists.
I just upgraded from 11.2 to 11.4 and the installation/upgrade worked just perfect. I than followed the instructions in the "New User How To/FAQ", "Multimedia and restricted format" post. I was following the instruction in the 11.4 section. I added the additional repositories as explained. I then was on the section where it talks about going into software management and selecting the "Packman" repository and clicking to "switch systems packages" to the versions in this repository (packman). I than click this link and the "warning" screen appears and I am present with conflict resolution after conflict resolution dialog. It just seems that there are some many conflicts, it just seems wrong and I canceled.
The installation/upgrade appears to have worked just fine. My mail is there, audio and dvd play back worked the first try after the upgrade. I am not clear if this is what I should expect or their is something wrong or if I even need to complete this step for a successfully installation.
After upgrading to 11.4 I can't get my mic to work. In 11.3 it "just worked". Originally I had 2 problems - no sound in Flash videos and mic not working. After uninstalling PulseAudio, Flash is working, but still no luck with my mic. I've tried all the possible options in KMix and alsamixes and it's still like dead. The system is OpenSuse 11.4, KDE 4.6, 64 bit.
I have installed the Packman Mplayer and smplayer packages. I have also installed the proprietary nvidia drivers from the main site. However when I try using vdpau in mplayer, the video doesn't show up and the logs show these messages:
I have a creative sound card (ca106 driver) detected and working. This is a 5.1 capable soundcard and i also have 5.1 speaker system. The sound card works, however, the problem is that only the front speakers are working. I have checked vlc settings, in which front speakers, centre and rear are seen as different devices.
Speakers are worming normally (sound okay) but when headphones are plugged in no sound is produced but the speakers are turned off. The headphones work on a different computer and work under windows 7 on this laptop. I tried to obtain the mmcheck script from one of the threads but can't find it anywhere on openSUSE site.
I have been running mediatomb for a short while, mainly to play my CD collection on the internet radio. The served is a x86_64 running OpenSuSE 11.1On jan 4 it ceased to work; the /usr/bin.mediatomb file vanished, and eversince I have been unable to get it going. i am using sqlite version.Anyone else got this proble? And even more importantly, how do i get the thing working again? I seem t have lost the db as well and it is not regenerating either
Sound worked great under opensuse 11.1 but I upgraded to Opensuse 11.2 and now can not get it working. The information the sticky says to provide is below. I have Checked all of the volumn controls all are set to approx. 75%. Running the sound test in "Yast/hardware/sound/options/play test sound" works...plays the sound
speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav doesn't work - no sound speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav doesn't work - no sound
i have sound but my mic capture seems to be not working in skype or well anything else and I'm confused on what to do after searching. It's an integrated mic somewhere in my laptop. I enabled capture in Kmix but that didn't seem to do anything.
