Ubuntu :: Gnome And Fluxbox Both Crash At Random Intervals?

May 15, 2011

I just recently upgraded to Natty and I'm having a fairly annoying issue with Gnome and Fluxbox. There will be random intervals where I'll hit the enter key and my desktop environment will just quit out without any warning. Now this is becoming a huge nuisance because I use time tracking software for work and I essentially lose time because once the environment crashes, the time is not saved.

General :: Gnome-panel In Fluxbox - Performance Degrades?

Nov 28, 2010

I'm toying around with fluxbox and like it's speed and simplicity. However, the gnome-panel is great and I would like to use it in fluxbox. Specifically, I like its system monitor, typing break, gnubiff and clock (which world clock support). My question is: if I'm running the gnome-panel in fluxbox will this degrade performance, for example, since the gnome-panel needs to load all the gnome related libraries etc.? One of the main reasons I'm looking into fluxbox is for speed so I don't want to lose that just because of the panel.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Stop Gnome-system-monitor?

Sep 26, 2010

since a few days (maybe one week and after an automatic upgrade), I could see a strange behavior of gnome-system-monitor. After a boot, everything is normal. But if I log-out, and then log-in again, the problem begins. Impossible to close the gnome-system-monitor window (by clicking on the window upper-right close button). I have to terminate the process. And this process takes about 50% of CPU. In the same time, a dbus-deamon process takes the other 50%. When I terminate gnome-system-monitor process, the CPU use drops down to 6%.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gnome Mplayer Freezes System / Stop It To Do So?

Jul 12, 2011

Lubuntu 11.04 on laptop (PIII ATI Rage Mobility). Playing a WMV or MPEG file, system freezes when playback ends. I have not tried any other formats.

I looked at mplayer Preferences

In the Player tab, "Video Output" was blank - I set it to "x11"

This corrected the freeze problem, at least the first time that I tried it. However, it did not seem to persist through multiple plays of the MPEG file, whether or not accompanied by an mplayer quit and rerun or a reboot, even though I did not change the parameters. I tried setting vo=x11 in the etc/mplayer/config file, but that did not help. It is sporadic. It will work a few times with the MPEG file, then hang, for no apparent reason. One thing it does seem to do consistently is hang on the WMV file, regardless of the vo setting, and on both files, when vo is not specified (what I started with). This is a time-consuming task, with a reboot on every failure, and I have run out of ideas on what to try next. When it hangs on the MPEG file I noticed that the elapsed time ends up at 20 sec, even though the video total time is 16 sec. When it doesn't hang, the elpased time goes to 20 sec, then returns to 16 sec.

Fedora :: FC15 Stop Gnome From Turning Screen Off?

Jun 5, 2011

Under Gnome2 you were able to stop the OS from turning off the screen by selecting "never" as the time to turn off the display when the computer was idle. This was found under the screensaver configuration.The screen tool for Gnome3 does not offer "never" as an option. Does anyone know how to stop Fedora 15/Gnome 3 from turning off the display?

Fedora :: FC15 Gnome 3 - How To Stop Screen From Blanking

Sep 2, 2011

How do I stop the display from turning off? In 'System Settings/Screen', I can only choose from a preset range of minutes - there is no option to disable it. Very annoying when watching a 90 minute movie, for instance. At least under FC14 I had the disable option. I tried unchecking Power Manager in gnome-session-properties, but that disabled the system from suspending when the laptop lid is closed and might have other ramifications as well. I tried disabling Screensaver in gnome-session-properties, but 'System Settings/Screen' still showed up with the same options, so it appears to be unrelated. Anyway, I suspect this is a power management issue, not a screensaver issue.

Ubuntu :: Get Rid Of GRUB Without Adversely Affecting Install?

Mar 6, 2010

Goal - have Ubuntu on one HDD and Win 7 on another. Sub-Goal - get rid of GRUB without adversely affecting Ubuntu install .I have three HDD's on my system; one contains Win 7 Pro (no complaints, love it), one is for storage (NTFS) and the third has Ubuntu on it (aside from the wireless issues and DVD playback issues, I love it as well).

All three drives are internal, but the Ubuntu drive is a special case. It's installed in a cradle that resides in an external bay. The Ubuntu drive can be turned on and off at will. I don't need GRUB (which will only confuse my fair lady).

So, if I run Win 7 recovery and "repair" the mbr, what will that do to the Ubuntu drive (which will be set as the first boot device in BIOS)? Will it boot per normal when the cradle is powered up, or will it be looking for GRUB?

Ubuntu :: No Sound - Affecting One User Profile?

Mar 20, 2010

I appear to be experiencing an annoying issue with my soundcard. As you can see from the images below, the soundcard is detected, but not when it comes to the "output". This is only affecting one user (my admin account is fine, as was a new user set up to test it).

I've looked at this page and have attempted reinstalling alsa, but to no success.

The results from aplay -l are:


**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: ALC883 Analog [ALC883 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


"stevek" being the user that I'm having difficulty with. I suspect that I might need to recreate part of my user profile, but I'm not sure where start.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Settings Affecting Other OS On Different Partition

Feb 12, 2010

I've got a weird wireless problem and I don't know why it is as it is... I've got 3 OSs installed: vista, Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 on an FS Amilo 2727 laptop, everything is fine in 9.04 but the wireless doesn't switch on in 9.10 until I do a "sudo modprobe acerhk" and then that runs, so things work with some fiddling and that's ok, what's weird is that if I don't activate the wireless in 9.10 and then reboot back into 9.04 the wireless in that then doesn't work and the "Enable Wireless" option is greyed out I have to go to vista and activate the wireless so I can get the wireless working in 9.04. you'd think each partition wouldn't affect the other ones but it obviously does.

Ubuntu :: Changing Partition Sizes Without Affecting Their Content?

Jul 6, 2010

I have a few partitions on my hard-drive, one for Ubuntu, one for Windows 7 and another for general data storage. When I installed Ubuntu, I was presented with a GUI which allowed me to easily reassign storage space from the latter two to create the former. Is there any way to get to something similar, from which I can adjust the proportions of the partition sizes, without affecting their content?

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove Broken Packages Only Without Affecting Others?

Jun 3, 2011

I was installing some packages using the generate download script in synaptic and 'sudo dpkg -i -R ...' because I don't have my own internet connection at home but somewhere else. I think I got carried away a little and installed some packages that have some dependency issues. Now I have three broken packages that need to be removed, but I don't want them to affect (remove) other packages which would be marked whenever I try to mark them for removal, for fear that their removal might affect other functions. I think my machine was just fine before I started to fumble with individual dependencies; that's why I don't what the other dependencies removed. My question is how do I remove those dependencies only using the terminal without removing the others?

OpenSUSE :: Any Changes From 11.1==>11.2 Affecting SANE Support Via USB?

Feb 4, 2010

I've been running 64-bit openSUSE 11.2 since shortly after it's release, on a quad core AMD Phenom based machine, using KDE as the Desktop. I have a USB-attached "multi-function" printer/scanner/etc., which worked fine with XSane under 11.1. On the same machine, with 11.2, I can still get a scan preview. But when I try a full scan, shortly after it starts, the progress bar stops, then XSane complains about an I/O error.

When I update openSUSE versions, if I can, I keep the old version completely intact, on the same machine. This includes the /home partition, I don't overwrite it. Sure it's a good deal more work to copy over the numerous files needed, but if there are any problems with the new software, it's extremely helpful to have a completely intact old environment for reference. I was able to do this, while updating 11.1 ==> 11.2. Booting the old 11.1 system on the same machine, I haven't encountered any scanning problems.

I haven't given a lot of details, because it's the same hardware, that should "in theory", mostly eliminate the hardware as a possible source of the problem. I'm hoping the problem can be resolved by focusing on any changes in SANE support, or XSANE itself, for USB attached scanners. It could be unrelated, but messages such as these are in /var/log/messages on the 11.2 sys:

Feb 3 17:45:03 toe-heaven kernel: [ 5881.313532] usb 3-1: usbfs: interface 0 claimed by usblp while 'xsane' sets config #1
Feb 3 17:45:03 toe-heaven kernel: [ 5881.313560] usb 3-1: usbfs: process 8214 (xsane) did not claim interface 1 before use

If XSane is doing things in the wrong order, I'm wondering if it would be a problem especially for a combined printer/scanner, or would the problem still occur if the printer and scanner were two physically separate devices? I checked and there are similar messages in /var/log/messages with 11.1. But if it is an error in the sequence in which XSane does things, could it somehow cause problems under 11.2, yet not 11.1? I tried to find anything which might be related to USB device handling, which perhaps could interact. I came across messages such as these in 11.2, but not 11.1:

Feb 4 15:15:10 toe-heaven udev-configure-printer: add /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/usb3/3-1/3-1:1.0/usb/lp1
Feb 4 15:15:10 toe-heaven udev-configure-printer: parent devpath is /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/usb3/3-1

Is USB printer handling somehow different under 11.2? With a combined printer/scanner, could there be an interaction? I did some experimenting. I kind'a thought a scan preview was just a scan at low res. So I tried to do full scans, starting with the lowest res., and increasing. I was able to do successful full scans at 100 or 150. But from 200 on up, the higher the res., the shorter the time to get an I/O error. I'd normally use 600 or above, to get what I feel is a good looking scan. At 600 the error report is practically immediate. It's almost as if the error only occurs above a certain threshold, of amount of data per unit time. I should mention, although it's a color scanner, I'm scanning a black and white doc., so using that mode of XSane.

Ubuntu :: Change Fonts In NAUTILUS Without Affecting Other Apps / Desktop?

Jul 2, 2010

I am having one problem though; In changing the Applications font in Appearance preferences, it changes the font used in Nautilus, which i do not want, as the font I am using does not have capitals. I only want the font on my panel Menus and/or Desktop, but not in Nautilus.

So what I want to know is this: can I set the font individually for Nautilus (or any app, for that matter)? If not, can I set the Applications font to the one I want for Nautilus, and then set an individual font for my panel Menu headings/Menus?

SUSE :: Writing To Log File Affecting Performance

Apr 8, 2010

I have 3 c files(one of them forks out 5 instances) all writing to one log file. Now to avoid the confusion of opening and closing in each application or instance and running into a situation of not having closed a file I decided to open and close the log file inside the log function for each write.

So what I do currently is fopen, flock, fwrite, unlock, fclose for each write. All the log messages from all the files get written fine and there are no errors but I see a performance hit. The applications talk to each other using SHM(shared memory). So when I try to set a timer and check number of messages lets say I get X messages. Each time I remove or add a log call the number of messages changes. When it is a 1 sec or 5 sec timer it doesnt make a very big diff..few hundreds but when I check it over a longer period..every log call added decreases 1000 messages in count. So I want to know what is an efficient way of implementing the custom log across the application.

General :: Password Policy Affecting Root User ?

Aug 3, 2011

I am using pam module to set password policy in my SuSE linux machine. This is my /etc/pam.d/common-password file:

Now if root user tries to change the password of a normal user, giving the same password, it is throwing an error saying "Password has been already used. Choose another".

> passwd user1
> password1 (set successfully)
> passwd user1
> password1 (Password has been already used. Choose another)

This should not happen with the root user.

General :: Reinstall Windows Without Affecting Boot Record

Oct 10, 2010

I have a new Dell Inspiron 1545 with a dual-boot setup: Kubuntu and Windows 7. A long, tedious story made short, I have Kubuntu working but cannot for the life of me get the wireless adapter to work in Windows 7. Since the Microsoft universal fix consists of reinstalling the OS, that's what I plan to do.

That said, I'm concerned that Windows will not just reinstall itself, but wipe out the boot record used by grub. I've invested enough time setting up Kubuntu that I really don't want to start from scratch (again) with both OSs.

How to reinstall Windows without wiping the boot record? If not (i.e. Windows will kill whatever grub has in place), is there a way to use the Kubuntu disc, or another linux disc, to reinstall grub afterward, thereby leaving the linux partitions intact?
