Ubuntu :: Can't Find Windows Partition After Switching To Xubuntu?

Feb 13, 2011

I've switched from Ubuntu Hardy to Xubuntu using the terminal. The only problem is I can't find my WinXP partition any more. In Ubuntu I used to mount it by going to 'Places' menu and clicking the folder icon. It's now gone. I can't see the icon in Xubuntu.Been reading other threads trying to find out what to do, but I'm relatively new to Linux. I can't find the folder under /media either. Also, I don't know what types my partitions are. Is this important? I figured I could access my Win folder in Xubuntu the way I would in Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Tweaks Specific To WINE When Switching From Xubuntu?

May 7, 2011

On my initial move from Ubuntu to Xubuntu my FPS dropped from around 36 to 4.Recommendations from WINE were to make sure I was using proprietary drivers, and that any desktop affects like compiz fusion were disabled. Opening Menu > System > Additional Drivers revealed the following:

Querying this in #xubuntu on Freenode I learned that there is a known bug that drivers will be in use although this applet may report otherwise. On activating the other driver, reactivating the original 'current version', and rebooting, lspci -k outputs:

00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) SMBus Controller (rev 02)
Subsystem: Dell Device 01dd
Kernel modules: i2c-i801
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G72 [GeForce 7300 LE] (rev a1)

I messed up my mbr by deleting my other drive which I guess had the MBR for both my OS (2 Windows 7's). So i installed Ubuntu in an attempt to fix it all hoping to get the GRUB. It then booted directly into Ubuntu.So I ran bootsect.exe tx the mbr and it said success.Still boots into Ubuntu directly without and grub.

I ran sudo update-grub
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.35-22-generic
Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.35-22-generic
Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.bin

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows Install CD Cannot Find NTFS Partition

May 3, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 on my Acer extensa 5620. I need to install windows and setup a dual boot on this machine. Here's what I did. I followed the instructions on this page


and resized my home partition (which is differenet from the file system partition). Anyways, I resized the partition and made a new NTFS partition. This was all done from Live CD. I then rebooted and then tried the windows installation CD. Now here my problem crops up.
Windows says that no partition is found. What have I done wrong? Any ideas? Can the drive be damaged or have I made a mistake some where? I did not specify a mount point for the new NTFS partition, does that matter?

Ubuntu :: Can't Find File-roller In Xubuntu Applications Menu?

Jun 3, 2011

find file-roller (aka 'Archive Manager') in xubuntu's Applications menu. I surely have it; it is the default application for opening archives, I can invoke it from the terminal but I can't just... run it from the Applications drop-down.I even tried the Application Finder with no luck using the keywords file-roller, archive, file, roller, .zip. .tar, etc. No luck.Can anyone else find it on their Applications dropdown menu? Or at least tell me that they can't find it either?I'm curious if I have some configuration glitch, or if this is a bug, or maybe there's just something in the water here.

Ubuntu Installation :: Resizing Windows Partition - Install Files On A Non Windows NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have

Windows XP
One of the E17 OSs
Puppy Linux (to create a remix)

I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.

Ubuntu :: Finding Windows Partition - Use FAT32 Partition For Photo Images And Old Windows Files

May 31, 2011

I got tired of dual booting on my old computer so on the new computer I am planning to run XP on VMware Player. The problem is that on the new computer neither Ubuntu or XP can "see" the FAT32 partition. I intend to use the FAT32 partition for photo images and old Windows files and need access from both Ubintu and XP.

Partition table entries are not in disk order.

Ubuntu :: Grub - Lost My Windows Partition - Can't Find Menu.lst In /boot/grub

Nov 1, 2010

I got ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx along with windows (dual boot) and using Grub. On my computer, I have my C:/ (programs) and D:/ (data). I've never used my D:/ before that day that I've lost my windows partition on my grub menu. I usually use my D:/ with windows. The first time I used my D:/ to store data with linux, I lost my windows option in my grub menu. I'm not sure what I did wrong but I do want to restore my windows option in my grub menu.

After "fdisk -l",

I checked in /boot/grub and there is no menu.lst to modify. how I can get back my windows option in my grub menu ?

Ubuntu :: Switching Between Partitions, Windows Xp Pro To 11.04

Jun 27, 2011

I was running 11.04 as my main OS untill I installed Win Xp Pro. 50 GiB Ubuntu and 100 GiB Win Xp Pro. Now when ever I boot my computer (Acer Extensa 5620) it AUTOMATICALLY goes into the Win Xp Pro OS. So I have no idea how to access all of my Ubuntu files and programs etc. This is a really big problem as I have yet to hook up Win Xp Pro to the internet. It is an older OS and it has made things very difficult. So I really need to be able to switch OS partitions.

Hardware :: Unallocated Disk Partition Boots Into Xubuntu 10.04

Jun 1, 2010

I've recently come back to Linux after several years away. I've been just sort of preoccupied with many other things. I have set-up an Xubuntu desktop on a 1.8 GHz P4 box with a 60 GB HDD and 500 Mb RAM. It took quite some time with research and playing to finally get it set-up the way I want it - samba, file shares, vncserver, and printing. I decided to try to get a handle on disk and partition imaging and cloning for backup purposes and I've made some fair progress, but I've run into something I can't understand and don't know where to go from here with it.

I used Parted Magic 4.10 on a Live CD to shrink the EXT3 partition on the 60 GB drive to a 10 GB partition. I verified that this worked successfully with df -h in a terminal window. Next, I copied disk (60 GB HDD) to disk (13 GB HDD) with EASEUS Disk Copy 2.3 via a USB connection. To test the copy, I removed the 60 GB HDD and replaced it with the 13 GB HDD. It booted normally into the Xubuntu session and appears to be a perfect copy.I decided to use Parted Magic 4.10 on a Live CD to grow the partition to use the entire disk (10 GB ==> 13 GB). When I booted the Live CD Parted Magic shows the 13 GB disk as totally unallocated.

Can someone please explain what has happened and how it's possible for an unallocated partition to boot.

Ubuntu :: Email Roadblock After Switching From Windows?

Mar 14, 2010

I have Googled a bunch for this and have found that it may not be possible, but I would love to find out I am wrong since this is the issue keeping me from switching from Windows full time. My school uses an Exchange server hosted by Microsoft and accessible, from Outlook 2007 through Outlook.com via http proxy. We have laptops with MS office 2007 installed and can use the Outlook connector to connect to this server.Is it possible to use an email client in Linux to connect to this server and retain the use of mail and calendar.

Ubuntu :: Switching From Windows Server 2003 To 11.04

Jun 1, 2011

I am switching from Windows Server 2003 to Ubuntu 11.04.

These are two different machines, the Windows Server has 2 2TB Hard drives in it, that are setup as a RAID 1. The data on the drives is irreplaceable. I've scoured the internet for about two weeks, trying to find the best solution. It seems like everyone else had a slightly different setup, or the was no solution.

The Ubuntu Server has a 40GB SSD in it. I just installed a 2TB Hard drive (same make and model of the two in the Windows Server) and made the filesystem for it ext3.

First thing I did was just throw the 2 2TB Hard Drives in the new server, and tried to set them up as a software RAID. After it prompt me to erase the drives, I strayed away from that idea.

My end goal is having Ubuntu machine completely replace the Windows machine, so I'll need to setup Samba (which I'm sure I can figure that part out).

How can I get all the data off the 2TB Hard Drives that are using NTFS onto a RAID in the Ubuntu machine with an ext3 filesystem?

Debian Configuration :: How To See Desktop When Switching Windows

Nov 11, 2010

Im using xfce desktop environment in debian. I find that I can not see the desktop when using Ctrl+Alt+Tab to switch window focus. I modified /usr/share/xfce-mcs-plugins/shortcuts/defaults.xml and added Ctrl+Alt+Tab shortcut to trigger a terminal command "wmctrl -k on", then i could see the desktop, but failed to switch window focus. Also, I failed to solve this problem by editing /usr/share/themes/Default/xfwm4/keythemerc Could anybody tell me a solution that you should be able to see the desktop when switching window focus, just like in win7?
