Ubuntu :: Right Mouse Click Freeze / When Right Mouse Button To Open Options Menu It Freezes And Does Not Open Menu?

Oct 14, 2010

just want to report "Right Mouse Click Freeze" on Ubuntu 10.10. When I click on anything with my right mouse button to open options menu it freezes and does not open menu. Sometimes when I shake my mouse left/right a bit it opens that menu, but this does not work always. It seems like xserver issue, but I'm not sure since I'm not expert in linux yet. It's very annoying issue that I would like to resolve asap.

My System Specs:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Western Digital 250 GB Hard Drive
Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit (Kernel Linux 2.6.35-22)
(Used Desktop Install CD)

Ubuntu :: Process (including Boot, Shutdown, Download, Open Programs, Etc) Is Freeze Until Move The Mouse Or Hit Any Button?

Nov 26, 2010

1) Any process (including boot, shutdown, download, open programs, etc) is freeze (don't have any progress) until I move the mouse or hit any button, so for install and use my ubuntu I have to keep moving my mouse and as you imagine is VERY TIRED.2) I get some general freeze on random times, neither the mouse, keyboard or process move, I notice that if I unplug power it unfreze, and I can work for some time.This 2 problems annoy me a lot, and I suspect is a problem related to my Netbook Model, I read about someone that has the same problem but no solution there.

This is what I did:I Try Ubuntu loading from my USB memory (1GB), run very good but with the 2 problems, but I thought it can be resolved installing.I installed along side with W7, couldn't boot Ubuntu, so I configured GRUB2 and it could enter now, but if I don't press **** after selecting Ubuntu it give me the BusyBox, and then the same 2 problems.I get rid of my W7 and did a Full Install on my 160GB HDD, hoping it can work fine, but no.I install all updates and no effect on that.

Red Hat :: Mouse Properties Has No Trackpad Info In It?

Apr 5, 2011

I am having issues with the gpu drivers and the touchpad, both of which seem to be traced back to xorg.conf.I can set the proper resolution using nvidia-settings, but it resets to 800x600 on restart no matter what I do. I have used the gui to save, I have tried nvidia-xconfig, and I have tried to just editing the xorg myself, but it always goes back.I am having even worse problems with the trackpad. I downloaded and installed the synaptics package, but nothing I do changes the trackpad settings. Mouse properties has no trackpad info in it.How do you properly configure resolution and trackpad settings on rhel?

OpenSUSE :: Possible To Have Trackpad & Cord Mouse Going At Different Speeds?

Mar 13, 2010

I've got a few things I need sorted out with my openSUSE installation:

1- I've read all the tutorials, done all the walkthroughs. How do I install APT, Synaptic & gdebi? To get Synaptic & gdebi, I need APT & everything tells me it's in the repos if I search for it. Nothing. How do I install it?
2- Is it possible to have my trackpad & cord mouse going at different speeds? My cord mouse is fine speed, but my trackpad is lightning fast & hard to control.
3- I have a secondary monitor.
4- Banshee doesn't play anything. It's a similiar situation to APT, but I still can't find anything. I've resorted to using Songbird (which I'm fine with), but it's podcast support is REALLY shotty.
5- Has anyone figured out how to manage an iPod Nano 5th gen yet? I'm pretty sure the answer is no, but... maybe...
6- Am I able to replace my HOME folder with an external hard drive? So that when I download something it goes to the hard drive, rather than the downloads folder.

Ubuntu :: Installation Freeze On Old Compaq (1998) / What To Fix It?

Jun 30, 2010

I burned ubuntu 10.4 desktop onto a CD and tried to install it on an old compaq. It was really slow but got to the popup window that asks your language and if you want to demo it or install it. I click on the try it button, but then it doesn't respond. I can move the window, but nothing else. It only has 128 meg of RAM, and hard drive shouldn't matter. The processor (I think) is a "AuthenticAMD AMD-K6(tm) 3D. I couldn't find the processor speed. Would it help if I tried the netbook edition?

Hardware :: Lost Sound And Laptop Trackpad After Ubuntu Upgrade?

Dec 10, 2009

Everything was working when I was on Ubuntu 9.04 but after I upgraded to 9.10 via their upgrade utility. The upgrade failed at the last point of installation (when it tried to install daemon I think). Nevertheless, after the reboot I was on ubuntu 9.10. But the sound stopped working as well as the mouse trackpad on my laptop. I remember that during the installation when it asked if I wanted to keep the old sound configuration file, I clicked yes. So is there I way to fix/reinstall the sound driver and the tackpad? In the sound hardware setting window, no device is listed. I'm pretty sure that my hardwares work on ubuntu 9.10 as the sound and trackpad work fine using the ubuntu 9.10 live CD.

SUSE / Novell :: 11.2 With HP-Compaq 6510b - Wifi Not Working ?

May 24, 2010

When I installed opensuse 11.2 on my notebook i found my broadcomm 4312 wlan card in the hardware list, but it's not working. I probed different ways to solve the problem.

I found these methods: [url]

I tested them all.

I'm afraid this is not enough, because the wlan led is not lighting. Every extra button works well such as volume buttons, but the wlan button does not working, so i can't switch on the wlan.

Ubuntu Installation :: HP Compaq 621 Laptop Cannot Boot?

Feb 17, 2011

I have been using Ubuntu for years. I just bought a new laptop - HP Compaq 621. Hardware settings:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6570 2.10GHz
Memory: 1GB
ROM Date & revision: 01/07/2011, 68PVI Ver. F.09
Video BIOS Revision: ATI 01/05/2011

I followed exactly what is described on Ubuntu [URL] Believe me, I burned image (not .iso data) to CD, but BIOS won't boot from the Ubuntu bootable CD. I also created a USB stick, again BIOS won't boot from the Ubuntu bootable USB (I selected to boot from USB first) stick. I tried with Desktop 10.10 32bit, 10.10 64bit, 10.04 32bit, and 10.04 64bit.

I also tried with my old Ubuntu Desktop 8.04 64bit bootable CD, which my very old Compaq Laptop installed. It allows me to see the menu. I selected "Safe mode" to install Ubuntu. But it gives me the error message: "udevd-event [1412] run_program /sbin/modprobe"

how I can install Ubuntu on my HP Compaq 621 Laptop?

General :: Partitioning And Installing To Old Compaq Laptop

Nov 14, 2009

I'm new to linux and have an old laptop did clean reinstall windows 98 but no updates, and now burnt iso image to cd on other pc and used it to try running puppy linux 3.01 on the compaq armada laptop (spec 56.0MB RAM, AMD-K6(tm)-III Processor used space 645MB free 3.80GB). I chose this older version as I think I'd read that this is more suitable for older slow computers.

I am interested in running linux fully without windows 98 or with it. Running from CD I have to select Xvesa I think as Xorg didn't seem to work. Tried partitioning but in GParted find myself unable to amend the size of partitions - got yellow exclamation mark next to the partitions. What I see is: greyed out unallocated 7.38MB, then /dev/hda1 yellow exclamation mark filesystem unknown 206.72MB, /dev/hda2 yellow exclamation fat32 4.45GB.

It does not allow resizing when I try. Associated with the yellow exclamation marks is the warning "unable to read the contents of this filesystem! Because of this some operations may be unavailable. I have done a defragment of C in windows already. (Also haven't been able to connect to internet on linnux with my wireless card.)

SUSE :: Flashing BIOS On Toshiba Satellite A105 S 4547 Laptop SUSe 11.2

Jan 14, 2010

I bought this laptop several years ago. It had Vista. Just long enough for me to download SUSe, nuke and pave the HD and install Linux. Recently I upgraded from 1 GB to 4 GB of RAM, the maximum that is allowed given the motherboard (based on from what I am able to learn the Intel 945 chipset).

After upgrading to 4 GB, the machine (according to "My Computer") only sees 2.9 GB. I understand that under an earlier version of the BIOS that the machine would not recognize the RAM correctly. Additionally the "My Computer" page lists the display as "Intel 945GM". My problem is that I can find no Linux utility to flash the BIOS on this machine-- Toshiba only provides the BIOS included in an .exe file for either XP or Vista. I am hesitant to use the BIOS for the Intel 945 series motherboards from their site.

General :: Compaq R4000 Laptop Randomly Locking Up?

Mar 12, 2010

I have a Compaq R4000 laptop with 2GB of RAM, running Ubuntu Linux 9.10. It is randomly locking up on me, approximately once every two days. I have a second partition with Windows XP Home installed, and I have had the system lock up in XP as well, meaning I believe this is a hardware issue. I have run two passes of Memtest86+ with no errors.The system has a fan that has died, so I initially suspected overheating. However the system just locked up on me while I was in the middle of typing a script to warn me / shut down if the temperature was too high. When the lockup happened the temperature was 88F, so I am now starting to believe that may not be the issue.When the system locks up, I cannot SSH in nor ping it. Nothing shows in syslog when I reboot. I have configured it to send syslog messages to a local server as well and no messages appear on that server when the lockup happens.

Hardware :: Installing Memory In Compaq R3000 Laptop ?

Jan 9, 2010

I installed a 1GB PC2700 SODIMM in my Compaq R3000 Athlon 64 laptop.

I am currently running Mint 7 (32 bit), 2.6.28-11-generic.

I removed one of my two 256MB sticks and installed the new 1GB stick.

When I installed the memory, the BIOS was able to recognize it, saying I had 1.25 GB of memory.

However, Linux refused to boot.

When I did a Memtest, I got nothing - it scanned the 768k of system memory in a fraction of a second, and then rebooted. It couldn't see either my new 1GB stick or my old 256MB stick.

Did I install the wrong type of RAM? Was the stick invalid?

CentOS 5 :: Wireless Not Working On HP Compaq 6715s Laptop?

May 19, 2009

I've installed CENTOS 5.3 on my laptop, on dual boot with windows xp. The problem is that my wireless network manager doesn't find any networks. Another laptop with fedora 10 installed finds the network, so the problem is not the network. I guess it's a problem with the wireless driver / firmware, as i had this problem on fedora some time ago, and i've solved installing the firmware. Now i've installed the firmware, i rebooted, and it still doesn't find any network.

Ubuntu :: HP Compaq NC8000 Screen Goes Blank Except For Mouse Pointer & Cursor & Crashes

Jun 3, 2010

Did a quick search for these symptoms and couldn't find anything related. After upgrading to 10.04 I found that the computer (HP NC8000) now crashes frequently and at random intervals. It occurs sometimes after only a few minutes, other times after an hour or two. It happens while its in use, or while its idle, wether the screensaver is on or not, even if its locked and the lid closed. When I walk away and come back I find the screen has gone blank (except for the Mouse Pointer and a cursor in the top left) and the Caps Lock Light and Num Lock Light are flashing (signifying a crash)

I caught it while I was using it and watched as the screen suddenly went blank as described above. No errors or explanations or warning. A reboot restores order, but not for long. Some assistance with diagnosing this would be helpful. I suspect it could be ATI radeon 9600 mobility related, as with each passing version of ubuntu it seems to be more unstable

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Hangs On Compaq Presario M2000 Laptop

Jun 16, 2011

I'm trying to install Lubuntu 11.04 CD on a Compaq Presario M2000 Laptop to replace XP.
Processor: Intel Pentium Celeron M
RAM: 256mb
Existing O/S XP SP3 (boots & runs but is very slow)
Hard Drive 40GB (28Gb free)

Installation hangs about 1 minute after selecting language in both try Lubuntu & install Lubuntu modes. Have also left the laptop running all night to see if it was just a slow install. Have tried various other disks (Xbuntu, Puppy, Mint, Lubuntu 10.04), which have worked on other PC/laptops ok, but all stall after the language settings. Have tried burning the Lunbuntu iso with both Windows & Ubuntu at slow speeds & have verified the burnt iso. The laptop BIOS cannot be set to boot from usb, so an external CD or USB stick installation may not work? The BIOS has been updated to the latest one on the Compaq web site this morning. Although I have installed a few flavours of Linux on various hardware, I'm still a real Linux newbie. Can Lubuntu be installed within Windows, but still format the hard drive to ext2/3 ?

Ubuntu :: Converting Compaq Presario CQ56 Laptop To The Full OS?

Jun 20, 2011

New member here. Was introduced to Ubuntu by the IT guy at my last place of work and liked it so much, I ran WUBI on my laptop for a couple of months before taking the plunge and today fully converting my Compaq Presario CQ56 Laptop to the full Ubuntu OS.

The only issue I have is I have no sound whatsoever. I have seen some suggestions where you should check the hardware drivers and when I do that the only driver that appears is for ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver. It also says this driver is active and currently in use.

So, can anyone else offer some help. I love the system and the way it does everything but it needs sound. Incidentally when I ran WUBI (while Windows 7 was on there) I did not have a problem with the sound!
