Ubuntu :: 10.10 Stops Working If Left Alone?

Nov 16, 2010

if the computer sits for a length of time, not being used. I have not timed it, but around an hour it seems. All drop downs work, but whatever i click on doesn't do a thing so i can open the drop down to shut down but when i click on it it just sits there or if i try to open firefox or chrome it just sits there. if im browsing the web or playing a game for a couple hours everything works but it i leave it to do something else and it takes close to a hour, and i dont shut it down. It just stops working. then i have to kill the power to stop it.

Ubuntu :: Left Mouse Button Stops Working In 10.10?

Sep 15, 2010

I'm having a problem with gnome. When I press a multimedia key on my keyboard (or obstensibly other hotkeys although I haven't figured out exactly what). My left-mouse button stops responding. The right mouse button works fine and the mouse tracks fine. I can go into the mouse control panel and switch it to a left handed mouse and the left mouse button works, but not the right. I ran 'xinput test "HP Mouse"', and I can see the left mouse clicks coming through. So X11 at least thinks it's coming through. I've got nothing interesting that I can find in /var/log. This is really generic USB hardware. HP Mouse and Microsoft Digital Media Keyboard.

I upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 then 10.10. Now my left mouse buttons doesnt work when I click the pplications menu. Sometimes it doesnt work at all. left or right click.

I have tried different mice, but it is the same problem. I dont see any error msgs in any logs I look in. Im thinking my next step is to reinstall, which Im not too excited about.

Ubuntu Networking :: Stops Working In 10.10 And Firefox Randomly Stops Working?

Nov 13, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 64-bit on my desktop with a wired internet connection (with no firewall). For the past 2 days, I have observed that1. Firefox randomly throws up errors like "Problem loading page" whenever I click on a hyperlink. When I click on Reload, the page loads up just fine. This has been happening a lot recently..and I do not remember updating anything consciously. By the way, ipv6 is disabled in Firefox.2. The network stops working all of a sudden (usually indicated by the Firefox error). The Autho Eth0 indication is active, but I am unable to connect to any external machine.

3. Needless to say, this error is manifesting itself in apt-get as well. I get "something wicked happened" errors all the time, and am unable to download or install anything.That this is not a problem with the ISP is obvious because I also have Windows (from which I'm typing this, ironically), which is able to access the internet.Is this a bug in Ubuntu 10.10?

Ubuntu Installation :: Shows Keyboard / Human Icon Then Stops With Cursor In Upper Left Corner?

Jan 12, 2011

What does it mean if you boot from a live CD, the CD spins, a screen appears with the keyboard and human icons at the bottom, then a blank screen appears with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner - and that's it? It just stays that way.

I've tried two different discs, one 10.04 and one 10.10; and two different disc drives.

Ubuntu :: Left Click Stopped Working?

Jan 5, 2010

I did an internet upgrade last night and right around then I think I also got a little liquid around the touch-pad of my laptop and now the left click won't work in Ubuntu on either my touch-pad OR mouse so I am not sure if maybe the connection for the left click on the touch-pad is shorted causing it to stay "clicked" which somehow disables the left click on the mouse... On my windows xp partition(which I am using now) I am able to use the left click on the mouse but still not the touchpad... Anyway I am wondering if there is a way to disable to touchpad via console or some other way to get around this so I can back my important docs and files and then "mouse" it till I can get a new laptop.

Ubuntu Installation :: Left Shift Key Not Working In 11.04

May 3, 2011

I have been enjoying 11.04, upgraded from 10.10, for the past few days without any problems. Today my left shift button stopped working, or at least changed its behavior. When I run xev, I get 'KeyRelease event, serial 39, synthetic NO, window 0x3c00001,root 0x15a, subw 0x3c00002, time 12813775, (27,34), root94,82),state 0x11, keycode 50 (keysym 0xffe1, Shift_L), same_screen YES,XLookupString gives 0 bytes: XFilterEvent returns: False'

I am using the usa keyboard layout and have not had any problems prior to the 11.04 upgrade. I have also tried creating a new user and changing to ubuntu classic. The problem with the left shift key persists through all of these changes.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Stops Working After Update

Mar 18, 2010

I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my laptop. The laptop has a single HDD with 2 partitions. Partition 1 has WindowsXP and partition 2 contains other data, among which the directory of the ubuntu installation. The partitions are formatted as NTFS. Ubuntu has been installed with wubi on the second partition. Ubuntu has been working fine for 2 days. Last night I updated the Ubuntu system and it required a restart. Needless to say, after the restart, grub wouldn't load. It just shows the shell.

I read the threads inside this forum and people usually manually select a kernel and boot up ubuntu, but when I do this, after I input all the commands I input "boot" and hit ENTER. The computer starts booting up until a point when it says ALERT! /host/ubuntu/disks/root.disk does not exist and something about using selection #1 and exits to shell (Easy Shell or Easy Boot, I can't remember exactly what it says... Easy something anyway) I've read that this is possibly caused by a NTFS dirty tag... but I do not see how to fix this problem.

Ubuntu :: USB Mouse Stops Working - 10.04

May 7, 2010

I have read no fixes anywhere, oddly. This problem happened in 9.10 and seems to be back in 10.04. The fix on Ubuntu-Geek, which was re-posted various places, does not work either. However, I do know this is not a hardware issue... or think. I have a dual-boot with Windows 7 and it is not affected by this. Also, if I install anything 9.04 or earlier, this does not happen. Oddly, my netbook had 9.10 and now 10.04 but not this issue. Sadly I feel I must try other distros as this appears to be a Ubuntu specific error.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Stops Working After A While?

Aug 11, 2011

This is the first time I've got a major problem with Ubuntu (I started with version 5), and this one is particularly frustrating.I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 on my old (2007) desktop PC.Occasionally, but more and more often now, the keyboard just stops working. The mouse is still fine. When I shut down, I would sometime notice that the "stop crash report generation" process fails. Then the shutdown sequence stops at some point, and I am forced to do a hard shutdown, power down for a while, and reboot. If I don't wait after power off, the keyboard freeze would occur again at any time during the start up sequence. I even had a keyboard freeze after manually switching to the Windows boot.

Ubuntu :: Left Mouse Button Has Stopped Working?

Oct 1, 2010

After upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 I have a big problem that makes ubuntu unusable. It seems like my left mouse button has stopped working. Left mouse clicks are not registered (although right clicks are). I've tested with 3 mouses (all USB, 1 wireless, 2 wired) and all show the same problem. All three mouses work fine under Windows 7 on the same computer and under ubuntu on different computers.

Right now I can't do anything, does anyone have a good suggestion how I might go and start troubleshooting this?

I can turn the volume up but pidginrhythmbox, nothing makes noise anymore. it's random...it just started happening today and this is the second time the music went out. anyone have any idea of how to stop this from happening in the future?

Ubuntu :: Touchpad Stops Working When Logging In?

May 30, 2010

I have an Hp Tx2 tablet with Lucid on and recently my touchpadsiezed to work while resizing a large partition on an external usb hard disk (which I believe has nothing to do with it). The resizing took me a day or 2. Since then, every time I log in, my touchpad freezes. It works fine at the login screen. As far as I recall, I did not do any substantial updates or apt-get installs recentlyWhen I cat /dev/input/mice it does give output, so I assume that it still works, there's just something in between, blocking my touchpad when logging in.

The driver is psmouse I figure (although I would think it's an usb touchpad), and if I remove the module and reload it, that does not make a difference.I already tried blacklisting, and loading after logging in.Anyone any input on how to debug/solve that?One thing I can add is when plugging in a usb mouse, that one does work. But that doesn't change anything on behalve of my touchpad. So it seems they use a different driver

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Stops Working After A While?

Jun 16, 2010

I'm having some problems with wireless, it works fine on boot but after a while pretty much randomly, it can be a few days or it can be a few hours, it stops working. I'm not sure which command would tell you what and it would take a little while to debug it because like I said it's random, but if anyone knows what to do please tell me! I'm on Lucid Lynx 10.04.Another something that's really bothering me (But not related to wireless) is that for some reason when I restart my computer, the top panel keeps changing the applets locations.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Stops Working After A While?

Oct 22, 2010

I have created a Samba share, using the fantastic Webmin tool. I have a network media player which can connect to my router, and then access windows (samba) shares. Most of the time, it works fine - it's able to stream HDTV wirelessly across the network. However, every so often, it just stops working ... the media player sees :

Network, then
FILESERVER-1 (machine name), then
Media (share name), then
Video (subdir, then
TV_Shows (subdir), then
MyShow.AVI ... just hangs

if I use the Webmin tool, I see multiple samba connections all from the media player. Restarting samba seems to have no effect. The only way to fix it, is to reboot.

logfile I can check, or a setting I can tweak to fix this issue ?

When it get like this, trying to access the share from a windows machine, just gives me an error saying it can't find the machine. But when it's rebooted, it works fine.

I have mapped the "nobody" linux user to "guest" which is what the media player is defaulted to login with (it's primarily sold as a "Windows" media player), and using Webmin I have assigned the "nobody" user read-only rights to the samba share. It worked fine for 6 months, until I added this new drive.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Pointer Stops Working?

Nov 25, 2010

Just a short while ago my mouse pointer froze randomly. I figured it was just the mouse so I disconnected and reconnected it, still nothing. Restarted computer and it worked for a while, then froze again. The mouse is wireless, but it doesn't seem to be anything to do with the mouse's hardware. The laser on the mouse and LED indicator on the sensor are both still flashing away while it's stuck. I then restarted again and tried an old wired laser mouse, which followed suit and worked for a few minutes, then froze mid-screen. This time I left it in, and it's been stuck for a good ~15 minutes so far. Using Ubuntu 10.04 x64. Mice are just generic wireless and wired lasers of Microsoft and Logitech, respectively.

Ubuntu :: Evolution Stops Working/responding?

Dec 6, 2010

I'm having some trouble with Evolution. I have set up two IMAP accounts and ne POP account. Whenever I leave Evolution running for a while, work with something else and then get back to check my email it won't show new emails for the IMAP accounts. In the "progress bar" at the bottom it shows:Ping server XXX (0% complete) Checking new emails (0% complete) nd this seems to go on and on, I've waited for abt.0 minutes for it to finish pinging and checking for new emails but it doesn't stop. The P account works fine. If I however close Evolution and then start it again it immediately check and show new email in the IMAP accounts. Is there any solution to this

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Randomly Stops Working Under 10.04?

Mar 3, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 since several months and I randomly have problems with the keyboard (PS2). Maybe 2-4 times per week the keyboard stops working all in a sudden. The symptoms related to this can be- the keyboard simply does not react any more to key press- during typing the keyboard gets crazy and fills the lines with the last typed character- opened windows move to the left when touching them at the top bar, keyboard does not react any more. When clicking on a panel menu the focus line is running permanently quickly through all items, and it's practically impossible to click on any of those (so even shutdown is difficult to achieve, and I might need to use a hard reset).

In nearly all cases the problem only disappears after reboot, just very rarely a logout is sufficient to get the keyboard working again. I googled for similar problems and found quite some people having problems with keyboard (and/or mouse) not working correctly under Ubuntu, but I have not stumbled over a similar error description as I have.Just some config parameters on my box: amd64, XOrg uses an Nvidia driver, 3D and Compiz are activated

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Stops Working On Startup

Apr 15, 2011

Sometimes Ubuntu 10.04 will get into a state where the system stops booting when it apparently attempts to initialize the USB keyboard (keyboard goes dead and never lights up again)(Saitek Eclipse II keyboard).

It either works, or doesn't work consistently regardless of reboot. I don't know what makes it stop working. (Or start working) Recovery mode doesn't work either. Or the saved -21 kernal.

I have an ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 and have the -30 generic kernal.

I can dual-boot into WinXP just fine.

I use my debian machine for masquerading, packet filtering anilar for a tiny network.It runs the latest debian testing.Every now and then (i am talking about weeks) the connection to my internet stops working.ifdown eth0; ifup eth0 brings it back.The other interface (eth1) is never effected.The odd thing is, there are no warnings, no messages .. nothing.I cant find any entry. Nothing in the logs, nothing in dmsg and no kernel panic.The only way to find out when it might have been happened is to search in several daemons log files,to find out when their first error connecting to the internet occurred.I ran memtest without any results.The nic is e1000 compatible.

Fedora :: Left And Up Arrow Keys Not Working?

Apr 6, 2010

I just installed fc12 on a Dell Latitude E6500 laptop. Everything is fine except that my Left and Up arrow keys are inactive so .e.g. I can't review bash history.

In the "keyboard preferences" GUI the keyboard model is "evdev-managed keyboard" (although I have also tried without success the model specific for this laptop) and the only layout is "USA".

Have done an update of all packages without fixing this problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mouse Stops Working After 9.10 Upgrade?

Jan 3, 2010

Before I upgraded, I used Ubuntu 9.04 on my Playstation 3. It worked absolutely fine. A couple of days back, I decided to upgrade to ubuntu 9.10 using the update manager. The installation process seemed to go fine, until I booted up the new version. When I booted up, my mouse cursor wouldn't move, whilst my keyboard worked fine, I unplugged and plugged it back in and swapped USB ports, but it came to no use. I reinstalled Jaunty and tried the entire installation process again. After installing the new version again, the same problem occured, my mouse just wouldn't work.

When I type in the command 'uname -a' it comes up with something (I apologize, I am a Linux noob) to do with the 2.6.24 Linux kernel, Ubuntu 9.10 is on the 2.6.31 kernel. Is this the problem? I don't understand what is going on or what the solution is. My mouse is a HP optical mouse if that helps. I can't bring up the terminal window because my mouse just doesn't work, which is really annoying me.
