System Ubuntu Linux, Maverick, 10.10 FireFox: version 3.6.17 Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0
Problem: Until recently putting in some random word in the URL field defaulted to a Google search. Currently Bing replaces Google. I tested this by opening a new tab and typing in a random word in the URL bar (in this case, fish). A Bing search resulted (click here to see what I got).
I am quite sure I overlooked something, but there is no more option to disable that error sound which blasts your ears when you hit backspace just some times to often when typing into console or autocomplete via tab has no or ambigous options to complete. How can I turn this of? Its not the PC speaker, its just the normal audio doing some weirdo predefined fedora error sound (which drives me crazy).
So after compinline binutils-2.17 so I could build grub, ALL of my development tools (gcc, g++, make, etc.) stopped working completely. none of the libraries will link, etc; just nothing works.ld -v returns:GNU ld version 2.17Ive tried reinstalling binutils-2.20 from the repo's, ive tried everything I can think of.
how to find the memory map of any process? I used the pmap on unix. But my requirement is to check how much memory has been allocated from any library files. For example suppose i have one a.exe and it load one abc.so file which alloacate some memory. so can there be any utility to trace which memory is invoked by which .so file.
Ok so I did some stupid stuff and tried to install some of the Backtrack 4 tools. Now when I tried to install VLC player in terminal I get this:"ph@top:~$ sudo apt-get install vlc Reading package lists. Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.

I have just upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04. The installation process seems to be perfect. However, after I reboot, I can only see my previous desktop. But all the side bars are gone. The so-called Unity tools (sounds like Mac Dock) are not present at all. Now the only thing I can do is click my mouse on the desktop, open a terminal by right click, play things that have link on my desktop... I even cannot find the option to reboot or start Firefox.
I installed Ubuntu 10.10 to dual-boot with XP Home on my Asus 1005HA netbook. The main hard drive is an OCZ Vertex 2 SSD. I've tried all the common tools for accessing the Ubuntu partition from inside XP, but none of them appears to work. Ext2IFS didn't let me assign drive letters - in fact, it doesn't seem to detect the Ubuntu partition at all. The Ext2IFS config tool in Control Panel looks like this (the SSD is 120 GB, and the Linux partition is 10GB as I recall):
explore2fs doesn't even start. Linux Reader can't open any drive, including flash drives and external HDDs.
I can't think of anything irregular about my system except the SSD. Could that be it?
I am trying to install Tracon Ubuntu Karmic Koala. In order to install Trac, setup tools needs to be installed.I have followed the instructions on this page;setuptools but when I run the 'python ez_setup.py' command I get the following error message
'Traceback (most recent call last): File "ez_setup.py", line 278, in <module> main(sys.argv[1:])
My computer says the driver is installed and the device is present. All of that went fine. Now I need to connect my card to my house's wireless network. Am I supposed to do that in System-->Administration-->Network Tools? The problem is that whenever I click on network tools, the application looks like it is going to start-up and then quits/crashes/runs away, whatever. Any ideas on what is causing this?
Okay, I tried launching from the terminal, here is what I got:
I found a similar problem. The poster used a similar title "Administrative tools fail to open - karmic" I also have karmic and four tools fail to load; Ubuntu Software Center, Hardware Drivers, System Testing, and Update Manger. Synaptic and System Monitor run. I ran update-manager and software-manger and was told module pygtk does not exist. I ran "sudo apt-get install pygtk" and it said that did not exist as a package. The terminal update and upgrade also work.
Code: me@me-laptop:~$ update-manager Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/update-manager", line 26, in <module> import pygtk ImportError: No module named pygtk me@me-laptop:~$ software-center
Would the best solution be to reinstall the OS from fresh downloads as at least the Hardware Drivers tool works with the live USB?
I'm trying to connect to my universities VPN, but I keep getting the error "VPN Connection Failed", which isn't very helpful. These instructions assume I'm using the Cisco VPN client on Windows, but surely vpnc on Ubuntu is very similar? (if not the same) I'm on 10.04 lucid, btw.Anyway, if there isn't something I can use to debug the problem, could someone suggest what settings I enter into the form?
I'm curious if there are any tools that can help speed up the time it takes for my computer to boot up. I've used different utilities to help my Vista boot up time, so I'm curious if the same sort of things are available for Ubuntu.
I am trying to make a multipass USB flash drive which basically turns say a bootable live iso into a flash drive, but many of them at once and accessing them using GRUB. The only issue I am having is I have to do this in Windows. So I am currently using my VM to do it and the Grub installer and petousb tool are not recognizing ANY drives at all on the system. I can use my usbs on the VM though.
As a frequent traveler, I spend most of my time in Hotel these months.My laptop is Ubuntu Maverick.Is there any UI tools for wifi scanning and auto-connection in Ubuntu?I have tried wifiradar. Although it could scan out the wifi SSID, while, the wifiradar could not connect to the WIFI.
I am Using Natty, the 64 bit edition and I noticed it was running slow. I chaked and one of my memories died on me and I am left with just 512 MB of memory. Since it will be a few days to buy a new memory I wanted to run the system on the lowest possible eyecandy, so I went to compiz configurator and sily me, I deactivated the Ubuntu one bar thinking i wold get the old bar theme, but what happend is that i have no bars whatsoever, just a clean desktop. I cannot open any programs at all like that. I am wrintg this from one of the user accounts, but the account i messed up is the adminitrator, so i need to get it up and running soon.
I recently purchased a Cyberpower CP1000PFCLCD UPS and much to my surprise when connected via USB to my PC (running Natty) the Gnome Power Management tool is able to see it and read some data, however the support is not complete. Gnome always thinks the UPS is supplying 0.0V although it is does properly read some data such as 'Time to empty'. Is it possible to configure the Gnome power application to properly speak to the UPS? If its not possible to have Gnome play nice with this UPS is it possible to at least have the UPS be ignored by the power mgmt tools?
I am able to use the Cyberpower utility but it would be slick to be able to use the Gnome tools for its history and statistics.
