I am trying to install Lucid on my Laptop but can't get the live cd to boot correctly. At the moment, it's giving me a purple screen with a white logo at the bottom, then a black screen with the underscore character blinking, and then nothing. (I have an HP tm2, with a USB DVD/CD drive. 64bit intel core 2 duo. I am using the Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop AMD64 .iso. I also tried the i386 .iso)
Ubuntu 10.04 is unable to set up my Canon Pixma IP 6000D printer.So earlier tonight when my wife wanted 2 recipes she saw on this am's Today Show, I had to restart my computer with a Fedora 13 live CD in the drive. F13 quickly installs my Canon printer and I am able to print the recipes.But this sure is a convoluted way of printing 2 short text files.to get my printer to work with Ubuntu.I've been using Ubuntu almost 2 years now, and love it, love it, love it, except for this one little thing.
The new Wacom Bamboo Pen (CTL-460) doesn�t work in Ubuntu Lucid out-of-the-box. You need a newer kernel module than the one that comes with Lucid by default. It�s pretty easy to get it working though, you just need to know how.
First, install some compiling tools and header files:
Now unpack, configure compile and install it:
# I know this is the wrong version, but it's the highest available and it works
The tablet should work now. You can also add the module name to /etc/modules to automatically load it on boot.
He also says (and I can confirm) that the gray lines are the new borders of the tablet. A little annoying, but I imagine one could configure that, too.
I upgraded from Karmic to Lucid yesterday and today today I've noticed that I can no longer apt-get update through the terminal. I'm behind a corporate firewall, so up till now I've always exported the proxy address like so:
Code: export http_proxy=http://user:password@address:port This hasn't worked under Lucid. I did some searching and found that Lucid did away with
I have tried out Lucid Lynx Beta 1 back in march. During the installation I was announced that support for bluetooth was dropped. I installed anyway, thinking it would be back in the Final Release. Meanwhile (between March and April) I reinstalled Karmic because I really needed the bluetooth. I can see in the upgrade that bluetooth still isn't available. What should I do about this? Is there a way to keep Lucid Lynx and bluetooth? Or will I have to stay on Karmic until the end of times?
Is there someone from Dallas, Texas, USA area? I've got a friend there with lucid lynx on a netbook - and she says something's gone wrong with it - she cannot boot. Maybe someone could maybe somehow meet with her and see if there is a possibility to fix it? As i don't really know what's wrong but I am on another end of the world and have no chance to figure it out.
I've got a generic USB keyboard (not wireless) that works perfectly on WinXP, the BIOS and the GRUB boot menu. As soon as Ubuntu 10.04 loads, however,he keyboard stops working. Tried different ports, still nothing. I haven't tested on previous versions of Ubuntu or other Linux distros. A PS/2 keyboard works great on Ubuntu except the one I have is broken, hence why I'm using this USB keyboard. Any ideas on how to fix this? It's the only thing holding me back from leaving Windows for good. lsusb:Quote:

When I try logging in using any user name, ubuntu just returns to the login screen. I cannot actually log in. I used the recovery mode to create a new login with password 123456, and the same thing happens. What could it be? Ubuntu worked just fine for a while, then DKMS started causing problems, I had errors with upgrades, software installs/uninstalls, then my sound went. I found a great fix for the sound (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting), the sound came back, but then I could not log back in again. I cannot find any help for this issue, and had to install 9.10 Karmic Koala, and that's what I have been using for the past couple of days.10.04 has been fairly buggy for me and I am considering staying with 9.10, or going to another Linux distro.
I have just updated ubuntu from koala to lynx via reloading the synaptic repositories, and after having restarting, to boot into lynx, found that my laptop's keyboard doesnt work, none of the keys are reponding at all, which is odd as I have never had this problem with my laptop before.. I thought this might have been a (semi) common problem with lynx, but after a few searches, have not found anything similar to this problem..Does anybody have any idea what might be the problem here, I can still use the laptop to do things via the mouse and even access the internet and grab text and paste it for things, but obviously would like my keyboard back (i didnt write this on my laptop!) I am 99.9% sure it is not a hardware problem
I don't know how many has had this problem, but I understand I am not the only onehe problem is that after using synclient to disable the touchpad in 10.04 it would enable itself, seemingly, at random.Well, what I found was that unchecking the "Disable touchpad while typing" feature in "System->Preferences->Mouse->Touchpad" will fix the problem.Apparently the system does not recognize that the user has deliberately disabled the touchpad. And so it will reenable it when the user is "done typing".
I've recently built a half-new computer and installed Lucid Lynx on it.I managed to get everything else working and even got the ATI drivers installed. However, I can't get above 60 Hz on my old CRT monitor - the ATI driver controls have 60 as the highest selectable refresh rate. The preferred 1152x864 screenmode works fine otherwise.
Here are the known specifications:
Monitor horizontal refresh: 30-86 kHz Monitor vertical refresh: 50-150 Hz Known working display mode on earlier graphics card: 1152x864, 85 Hz.
My motherboard (with integrated graphics) is the Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AMD 880G AM3. The GPU is Radeon HD 4250.The ATI drivers seem to have "taken over" the xorg.conf, so I don't know where to input any values.
I recently installed Maverick Meerkat on a hand me down laptop. And noticed that when I entered the password for admin privileges to install from the update manager, a key icon appeared on the top bar. I moused over it and saw I could use THAT to end privileges before the 10 minute grace was up. I should have thought of it before, and, small as it is, I thought this was a great feature.So, when I upgraded from Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx on my desktop, I thought that feature would be there, but it's not.So first I'm wondering if it's there, but just not default. If so, how do I get that icon to appear? If not, how do I otherwise end admin privileges early?
I was running a small LAMP setup on my homenetwork with Ubuntu 9.4. Every thing was working OK. I then upgraded to 10.04 and now my php does get executed. Apache is still working, but I suspect something in the config has changed, but I don't know what.When I try to load a .php file, the resultant web page is just blank, if I have a .html file with php code in it, the page is not rendered from the point where the php starts. I have checked /var/log/apache2/error.log and there is nothing in that file.
since i upgraded from karmic to lucid the script i used to configure my cintiq tablet doesn't seem to work anymore. i searched and found that they replaced wacomtools...but i can't find where they explain how to fix my boutton mapping. i really need your help to map the cintiq shortcut buttons.
While leaving my laptop to install the upgrades, I hadn't noticed how the power cord had slipped loose. When I came back my computer must have shut off due to battery loss. When I booted up my computer again, I couldn't boot up Ubuntu under any of the kernels, -20,-19, etc. I get cryptic messages such as "unable to enumerate USB device on port 2," device not accepting messages," and "device descriptor read." i definitely intend to recover my data. I had been upgrading from 9.10 to the latest version of lucid lynx.
I just downloaded the Lucid Lynx 10.04 LTS Install CD for the desktop. I am concerned that I have downloaded the wrong ISO or that the CD that I burned is not behaving properly. Unlike all of the other Ubuntu "Live CDs", this one doesn't offer you a choice of what Ubuntu does at Boot-up. There's no menu that asks what you'd like to do. This CD doesn't give you choices like:
- Test Drive Ubuntu without making any changes to your computer - Install Ubuntu - Test CD for Errors - Test Memory - Boot from Hard Disk
Instead, this CD just boots right to a Gnome desktop. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but it turns out the the CD is performing some actions behind my back that I don't like. All that I wanted to do was to check the CD for errors to make sure that it burned properly. I didn't want it installing on the system where I was doing the burning. Instead of giving me options at boot, the CD automatically loaded Gnome, and then proceeded to mount all of the drives on my system, and then attempted to establish connection to IP address 220.127.116.11. I didn't like that. Luckily my firewall is secure enough that it stopped this unauthorized outbound data traffic dead in its tracks. I used reverse DNS to look up the owner if IP address 18.104.22.168. Here's what I found:
http://whois.domaintools.com/22.214.171.124 IP Information for 126.96.36.199
Is this a Live CD, where you have some options about what to do at boot-up, or is this only an install CD? This information isn't clearly spelled out on the download page. this LiveCD taking control of my computer, mounting my drives, and then establishing contact with Canonical Ltd., without even giving me a menu option before doing so.
It seems that my Ubuntu 10.04 (clean install) to randomly freeze / hang (mouse/keyboard unresponsive, only a hard reboot is available as option) but with no garbled screens/windows/etc. There's no pattern why or any application that could be responsible. It could happen ten minutes after it is started or after 2 days but at some point and suddenly the system will become totally unresponsive, freeze and hang up. I used the same PC with Karmic Koala and releases before that (sometimes on for days) with no such problem so it shouldn't be a hardware problem.
I thoroughly check system logs after the hard reboot (System > Administation > Log File Viewer) and there's no entry around the time of each freeze / hang to pinpoint me to something.
The only thing that is certain is that the following errors / warnings always appear in .xsession-errors file:

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an old desktop computer so that I could use it for Rails. I installed Ruby, rubygems and Rails using
Code: sudo apt-get install and it works fine, but I cannot install Mongrel through
Code:sudo gem install mongrel,it's giving me this block of error message:
Code:Building native extensions. This could take a while...ERROR: Error installing mongrel:

I don't need password protection, I don't have it on Windows 7 for any acct, and also don't want it on linux.However, as a non-tech person, I couldn't eliminate this requirement.I tried inputting an easy password to minimize inconvenience but was warned it was either "too short" or "too simple".
I get no sound for anything, I am running Ubuntu Lucid-amd64. Pulseaudio detects my sound card, and appears to be playing to it when I look at pavucontrol. But I get no sound for anything, not even alerts. I don't eve know how to debug it, because everything I have looked at looks like it should be working. I have checked every mute button I can find, and nothing is muted that I can see. The relevant information for my sound card from lspci -v is:
