Ubuntu :: 9.10 Not Fully Loading KDE Desktop?

Feb 25, 2010

This has happened to me twice in a row while installing kubuntu 9.10 on the same machine:I get the OS installed and it prompts me to reboot the machine. I do so. On the first reboot, the KDE login screen never loads, and I just get a blank black screen.I then do a hard reset. From there, everything appears to work. I use the machine for awhile and all is well. For whatever reason, I end up rebooting, and when I log back in to KDE, not only do I not get my custom wallpaper, but I also don't get any desktop icons, a taskbar, etc.Right-clicks don't even work. The only thing that was loaded both times was the terminal that I had left open the last time.

Ubuntu :: Browsers Always Hanging On Web-pages / Not Loading Them Fully

Jan 28, 2011

browsers consistently hanging and not fully loading web pages. this happens in all the browsers i have tried. Opera and Chromium and Firefox. This only happens in Ubuntu. All the other computer in this house load fine and this windows side of this computer loads the pages the right way. At this point i don't know what to do but keep hitting stop and reload and few time till the page loads. can anyone help with this? Also I have tried to clear the cashes. One question where do the temporary Internet files go so I can manually clean that folder out. And also Firefox isn't to bad and the other browsers I just don't like it that much as I like the opera.

General :: Fully Automated From Boot To Loading File?

Nov 18, 2009

While I have been using Linux for many years (Slackware), I have found myself facing a special need that I can't quite figure out.I work at a club where I use iMovie on my Mac to create a DVD that plays on all of our TV's displaying our upcoming lineup of bands.In order to save on DVD's, I would like to create a very small form factor PC running Linux with the following requirements: the computer must boot into Linux and log itself in, the computer will boot up with a thumb drive attached containing a movie file of the most Linux compatible video format. After booting up and logging itself in, the video on the thumb drive must start playing automatically in full screen mode and in a continuos loop.So the whole thing needs to be automated from boot to playing movie; only the power button should ever need to be touched.

Fedora :: 11, Unable To Fully Login To Desktop?

Sep 11, 2009

I'm running a Dell D630 laptop that uses the onboard intel i915 chipset for both audio and video. This is in a docking station that's connected up to a larger monitor. The laptop boots just fine as it has been for quite a while now. I get to the login prompt, enter my credentials and then after pressing enter and it looks like it's going to load my profile, the wallpaper updates but then the screen goes black for a moment and I'm then brought back to the login prompt again. The system is up on the network so I was able to ssh into it and capture the following from the logs during a login attempt.

Sep 11 08:03:27 jdesilets kernel: [drm:i915_gem_object_unbind] *ERROR* Attempting to unbind pinned buffer
Sep 11 08:03:27 jdesilets kernel: ------------[ cut here ]------------

Fedora :: Desktop Won't Fully Load After Install

Jan 29, 2011

When I load a fresh install of Fedora 14 on my system that the desktop doesn't load completely? It goes as far as giving me the desktop with a background, the icons and status bar do not appear. I am able to right click and open a konsle terminal but only when I am in KDE (failsafe)

What is weird is initially I had no problem. But when I switched to a different monitor the desktop would not load correctly. I have reinstalled the OS since then and still have the same issue.

Ubuntu :: Get A Fully Functional Desktop At Work Without A Dual Boot Setup?

Apr 6, 2011

I am once again trying to get a fully functional desktop at work without a dual boot setup. One issue is file searching. I have looked at beagle, tracker and Google Desktop. I am currently testing Google Desktop and it appears to work well, but it is not integrated into nautilus and it appears to not index my email in evolution that is accessed via an exchange server.

Beagle appears dead. Tracker looks promising, but I can't tell if it integrates into Nautilus currently without rebuilding Nautilus. If you use Tracker, can you tell me how it works with Nautilus, mapped cifs drives on windows servers and evolution in exchange mode. Also, the current version of tracker is 0.10.6, but on 10.04 only 0.6.X is available and Natty looks poised to ship with 0.8.X. Is there any advantage to compiling it? Are there Ubuntu specific tweaks that are lost if you go with source?

General :: Chainload Into A System In A Fully Loaded Windows Desktop?

May 4, 2010

Out of curiosity, can you chainload a Linux system via a Windows executable within Windows at the ordinary desktop?Knowing windows there would be enough holes to write at any memory address without "permission", but can it be done with a humble executable? Or is Windows just too active, without the chance of nothing happening at any one pointo that everything can be exited cleanly non-existent?I'm not asking for a program or guide to do this and neither do I aim to do it. As I've stated it is all out of curiosity on whether or not some sort of protection is in place to stop this kind of thing

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Desktop Not Loading After Login?

May 15, 2011

Recently, updated to 11.04. Yesterday I booted the system and found that after I login my Desktop does not come up.. The mouse indicator just continues to spins. I have observed if I wait about 5 minutes my screen saver will kick in. My setting is for 5 minutes. Once I cancel the screen saver Iḿ back to the mouse indicator circling continuously. At that point all I am able to do is restart and try again. None of the keyboard shortcuts seem to work when that situation exist.I am running a Compaq Presario Dual boot2 GiB of RamAMD Athlon XP 2000+

Ubuntu :: Gnome - Desktop Not Loading Properly

Jun 8, 2010

I recently restarted my computer after trying to install an update that was available for ubuntu (linux kernel image update i believe) which failed.

After restarting the computer, the ubuntu splash screen appeared as usual, and now my desktop is gone (see attached image).

I also got a gnome error message (attached) which i've never seen before, but i'm guessing it's related to my absent desktop.

How to restore my desktop?

Ubuntu :: Firefox - Often It Will Freeze My Desktop When Loading New Pages

May 4, 2011

I'm having trouble with Firefox hanging. It takes at least two attempts to launch, having to force the initial blank page to quit. Often it will freeze my desktop when loading new pages, and I have to force quit. I've upgraded to 3.6.17 but no difference. The Mozilla help page suggests disabling add-ons to find the problem, but to no avail. Chrome works OK but I'd rather use Firefox.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Forgetting Desktop Settings And Not Loading Icons?

May 11, 2010

Since I've upgraded to 10.04 from 9.10 my computer has started acting strange. First of all, it keeps forgetting my wallpaper. Most of the time, not all of the time. Another problem is that the power-button in the upper right corner does not appear at every boot. It seems to be forgetting other settings as well from time to time.

What I belive might be causing this problem is that I mount my home directory from a server, and a wild guess is that it is somehow a random order of the startup sequence, so that some features are loaded before the mounting is complete.

Ubuntu Installation :: Compiz Installed Incorrectly - No Desktop Loading

Apr 30, 2011

I have been doing some research on problems I have been having and I have narrows Compiz down to being the problem. I am running the prop Nvidea driver. I can use Unity 2d fine however I cannot use Unity at all I just get a blank screen with the mouse cursor no desktop ever loads. I have tried switching between gdm and kdm. I have now worked out that compiz looks like the problem. If I issue a compiz --replace at the terminal I get the same sort of problem I get when I log into the Unity 3d. I loose my left hand monitor (it goes black but I can move my mouse around) and on my right hand monitor I can operate things using the keyboard but when you click with the mouse it does not work although you can move it around fine. Never used Compiz and I dont know if anyone knows any troubleshooting I can try I have exhausted what I could find on the Internet (A few exports of global variables but none fixed anything).

Software :: Loading Any Distro On A Sony Vaio Desktop?

Jan 30, 2010

I have a Sony Vaio , desktop Model# PCV-2252 . I have tried to load

Mint 7, Mint 8, SimplyMepis 8, PuppyLinux

They all get so far and won't load anymore. Puppy gets to the Keyboard selection, but won't let you choose one. Most of the others get quite a ways thru the process (all the text on the screen) and then just stop. Have used the same discs on other computers and know they work. Apparently others have this problem with Sonys

CentOS 5 :: GNOME Desktop Icons And Background Not Loading / Get Them To Work?

Jan 13, 2010

I am running CentOS 5.4, which I am occasionally managing via VNC from windows machine. This all occured after one long VNC session although I can't confirm this was the real reason. I also must say that I've seen some posts from people that had the same problem, but not anything helpful. Here is what happens:

Even if I start the machine from scratch I get the following error messages just before the login prompt and type of session window shows:



If I choose GNOME and login I get more errors (for every icon I guess) saying:


Desktop then loads but there is no background image (other backgrounds don't work either) and the icons are question marks. All the menus and programs work normally.
KDE on the other hand works normally with all visuals, so I assume there must be something wrong with GDE PNG library or something, maybe GDE corruption. If I make another user it's the same story.

General :: Triggered Process - Start Automatically When The Desktop Finishes Loading

Jun 29, 2011

I am running Debian Squeeze with icewm as desktop environment. I am trying to start feh automatically when the desktop finishes loading. I have tried crontab -e with @reboot /usr/bin/feh /home/user/photos/ & I think that the best way to do this would be to monitor for the x-session-manag process. The reason I think this would be a good solution is that I killed x-session-manag and it killed my x-session and straight to command line interface.

OpenSUSE Install :: No Desktop Loading With New 11.4 Install

May 30, 2011

I'm installing 11.4 KDE on an Acer D255 Netbook. (dual core Atom, 1Gb RAM)

The OS runs perfectly on this PC when booting from a thumb drive, but when I install to the HDD I can't get to a GUI desktop.

If I boot "normally" I just get to a CLI with a white background in the upper left 1/4 of a black screen. It appears that it's using init 5, just no desktop. (the installer added boot option vga=0x314, I tried booting both with and without that option, and I tried nomodeset too just for chuckles, no luck.)

If I boot to Failsafe Mode I can get to a GUI desktop (boots to init 3 then I go to init 5 and startx.)

Ubuntu :: Can't Fully Change Language In 10.10?

Feb 15, 2011

I have a fresh Ubuntu 10.10 installed in spanish and I found out when I tried to create a new user in English that just part of it is in English. For example, the name of most of the applications are still in Spanish, and all the OS notification are also in Spanish, as most of the programs. I've tried to turn to some other language and exactly the same things are translated.
