Ubuntu Installation :: No Launcher After Upgrade ?

Jun 7, 2010

So I saw there was a button on update manager that said new version available. I say what the heck, I'll upgrade. I am (was) using 9.10 netbook remix. After I did a few tweaks with synaptic etc to get the upgrade to go through, I am left with no launcher, and an error popping up saying cannot load applet GNOME-GoHome (or similar).

Did the automatic upgrade thing just install desktop 10.04 over my 9.10 NBR?

How the heck do I fix this? Should I burn an ISO of 10.04 netbook and attempt to upgrade from there?

I cannot lose the files that are on this partition, I have access to them currently and would like to keep them available.

Ubuntu :: Drag File/Folder To Taskbar Button Creates Launcher, Not Bring Folder To Foreground?

May 20, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04, I noticed something strange, being that when I want to drag a file or folder from one Nautilus folder window to another which is not visible, I can no longer hold the item over said folder's taskbar button and wait for it to appear. It just shows the + for copy, and when I let go (which I have no choice but to eventually do), it creates a launcher to that item (I assume it's doing that, and not actually copying there, but the + has me unsure).

I've looked in Nautilus's preferences to see if this is some new behaviour that I can revert back to, but could find nothing there.

I'm of course using the Classic desktop with bottom panel being the taskbar. If you know how I can rectify this, please let me know, as the times I would want to create a file or folder launcher without the usual hassle would be rare, but I am constantly dragging stuff from one folder to another, and it would be a real pain to have to line up source and destination folders each time.

Ubuntu Installation :: Desktop Quirks On Upgrade To 10.10 - New 'unity' Sidebar Launcher Supposed To Replace The Old On-screen Menu?

Oct 10, 2010

Just updated from Lucid to Maverick UNE. (It froze at one point, so I killed it from a virtual console and used 'dpkg --configure -a' to complete the installation.) My question: Isn't the new 'unity' sidebar launcher supposed to replace the old on-screen menu? We now have both. And the old menu seems buggy: e.g. the text under some icons is displayed *vertically* (i.e. in a column just one character wide!) instead of horizontally.

Ubuntu Installation :: Get More Room In /home Folder?

May 1, 2010

I installed UNR 10.04 the other day, and it was my second time to install due to complications in the first go around. I installed UNR specifying partitions manually, and erased my first install and used that partition for my current one. In the process I shrank the swap area from 5G to 2G in order to match up to my RAM and free up 3G of space I could now use. Here is where I goofed: I was left with around 114G of free space, then the 2G of swap, then 3G of more free space. Well I specified the 3G to be mounted at /home hoping it would just add that free space to the big 114G space. But, alas, now I have a home folder that has only 1G of free space, and more music and movies I wish to save. How can I get more room in my /home folder or merge it somehow to all be in the main install space?

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypt Home Folder After Installation?

Feb 11, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu Jaunty (I do not like Karmic, please don't try to make me upgrade) and after installing all my programs I realized I did not encrypt my home directory.

I know it's very simple to do this during the installation but I can't seem to find an option to do it after it.

Is there a way to do this?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Reconnect To Home Folder Partition

Feb 24, 2010

I did a fresh install of ubuntu 9.10 yesterday while trying to get my wireless working again (a problem for another forum). I have previously put my home folder on a separate partition.Having foolishly assumed that it would pick up the home folder as such after the install. Of course it didn't. The partition is still intact but it is not being recognised as the home folder.

Ubuntu Installation :: Home Folder On Separate Partition?

May 8, 2010

Many Ubuntu users seem have their /home folder on a separate partition (better security?). I have a OK dual-boot installation (Win7+Ubuntu 10.04) - should I try to move my /home folder ? If so, how ?I DO NOT want to get into any troubles with my existing setup !I have free (unallocated) disk space both outside and inside the extended partition which is used for Ubuntu (90 GB, Ubuntu is 60 GB ext4 + 7 GB swap).

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Log In After Reboot - Empty Home Folder

Dec 19, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my machine. I logged in and installed a few programs like wine. Everything went fine until I rebooted. Now, after I log in, it gives me 2 error messages: One about how it could not update ICEAuthority or something

Another about how usr/lib/libconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check2 returned status 256. Then, something else pops up about how Nautilus can't find or doesn't have permission to write to home/user/Desktop and ome/user/.nautilus. I tried booting in recovery mode and did a dir on /home, but nothing showed up, which makes me think that they somehow disappeared or they aren't being shown.

Ubuntu Installation :: Home Folder Is Not Recognized After Downgrade

Apr 29, 2011

I downgraded from 11.10 to 10.10 via installation CD, because the 11.10 installation was lost beyond recovery.

The 10.10 installation works fine except one problem During the installation, I selected manual setup of Partitions and my home partition was not recognized as /home but only as ext4.

Fortunately I managed to recognize it, due to the size of the partition, so I prevented this partition from being formatted.Now, this partition is not my home partition, but just an ordinary partition, which I can access and where all my files are present.Anybody knows any magic trick, how I can make this partition my home partition?

Ubuntu Installation :: Default Home Folder For First User?

Jun 12, 2011

when installing ubuntu, the installer asks for username/login/password of the first user which will be allowed to sudo and administer the system... let's call that user "ubuntu"

what if I want to:

1) Automate those answers (which preseed variables should I set if any?)

2) Change the default home directory only for that user... let say I want it to be /ubuntu instead of /home/ubuntu (because I want /home/ to be empty after setup).

I know I could tweak /etc/passwd after setup (before first reboot) but I would like to know if there is a "clean way" to do that.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.4 Reinstalled On Partition - Home Folder Gone

Jul 17, 2011

I had some trouble with my installation of Ubuntu 10.4 so I decided to reinstall the OS. (I have my /home on a separate partition).
[ntfs] [ntfs] [ext3/home] [ubuntu] [swap]

I re installed Ubuntu on the partition I set aside for the OS. Ubuntu installed, everything works as it should but now all the contents my Home folder is gone! I did not set any options that would of formatted the /home partition during installation I only set the partition to be used for home selecting [use this partition]. I suspect that Ubuntu set the home folder back to the way it comes out of the box I need to recover this drive, its so important that its life or death! How can I recover this partition and the files that where on this drive?

Ubuntu Installation :: Clean Install From 9.04 Keeping Home Folder?

May 29, 2010

I have 9.04 in my laptop and I want to make a clean install of Lynx.

My home partition is sda7 (ext4), so in the partition step during the install I'm telling the installer to use the partition as ext4 but don't format it (I'm explicitly checking sda6 as / mount point and set to format as ext4).

On the next step I see disabled options regarding the access to my home folder and "Require my password to log in and decrypt my home folder" is checked.

My current home partition is not an encrypted partition, so I am not sure of what will happen. I just want it to mount it and access it as Ext4, not encrypt it.

I also have a Private folder in my home partition, what will happen to it? Will I be able to mount it afterwards?

Ubuntu Installation :: Move Home Folder When Upgrading To Lucid?

Jun 9, 2010

I am planning to move to Lucid from Karmic now that I am out of university for the summer and have time. I have heard that there is a way to copy your home folder over to the next release and all of the data and program settings will remain intact. I have tried some research on the subject but everything I have found has been extremely confusing. I want to do a fresh install (as my updater has been failing time and time again and asking for partial upgrades etc). Instead of creating a new partition for the home folder, would it be possible to move it to an external drive and copy it back over (I have tried to copy it to the external but I get some errors even in sudo)?

Ubuntu :: Home Folder Icons Don't Update When Change The Home Directory

Sep 22, 2010

I have a dual-boot macbook with an OS X partition and an ubuntu partition. When I first installed ubuntu, I changed my home folder to my OS X home directory to synchronize all my files from both. My home directory is now /media/sda2/Users/username/. In a regular home folder, the icons for Documents, Music, Pictures, Movies, etc. are different (not just with emblems, but actually different icons). But when I changed my home folder, these subfolders' icons stayed the same as regular folder icons and I can't figure out a way to change that default setting. I know how to change the icons for each folder manually, but these changes don't appear everywhere (i.e. nautilus, places, etc). Furthermore, every time I change my icon theme, I would have to manually reassign icons for these folders. Is there a way to globally change the folder icons for these folders?

Fedora Installation :: Installing Fresh Copy Using Home Folder From Ubuntu?

Jul 16, 2009

I've been using Ubuntu for the past 4 years or so and would like to give Fedora a try. I have a question - should I decide to ditch Ubuntu for Fedora I will want to install but keep my Home folder.Normally whenever I've reinstalled Ubuntu I've installed over top of my existing installation. I have 3 partitions:
1 - Root
2 - Swap
3 - Home

When I reinstall I normally format root and swap but keep home and choose my usual user name. hen I boot up after install all my settings for all my apps are retained.

If I install Fedora this way (keeping Home while formatting Root and Swap) will I get the same results?

Ubuntu Installation :: Locked /home Folder After Failed Update To Lucid?

May 10, 2010

After a powerdown during my upgrade of Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.04 that rendered my operating system useless I can get to my /home folder. The /home folder is locked and can not be copied or read. This means I can't reinstall my stuff and keep my files. The rest of my data (except for the /root folder) seams to be unlocked. How can I get to my /home folder? Does anyone know how to unlock it?

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Install From Lucid CD And Home Folder Access

May 17, 2010

I have a 160gb Hard Drive, I partitioned like this:
1. First partition 16GB, ext4, mounted / I have my Lucid filesystem on this partition and boot flagged.
2. Second partition 112GB (extended- 110gb as /home, and 2gb as swap memory)

My disk list:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 1946 15631213+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 1947 15647 110053282+ 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 1947 2274 2634628+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda6 2275 15647 107418591 83 Linux

I have my system upgraded from Karmic 9.04 (automatic distro upgraded), but I have too many problems with this upgrade, (nvidia video card not working properly, I can't mount my mp3 player (sansa), and another issues with sounds, etc.) Since I have a separate /home partition, and separate / partition, I would like to do a fresh install of lucid on my first partition (/dev/sda1), thinking of maybe it will fix all my problems with a fresh install from a Lucid CD,

My questions are:
1. If I do a fresh install on /, will I be able to access my home folder on the extended partition?.
2. If I do a fresh install on /, the Lucid installer will recognise my /home partition, or will install everything again?. (meaning another home folder), I don't want 2 home folder,
3. Am I going to have a permission problems between the fresh install and all my stuff in /home partition?

Ubuntu :: Delete Remaster Folder From Home Folder?

Jun 13, 2011

I have Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 updated to 9.10 and have downloaded Remaster from Remastersys. I followed all of the instructions, which were simple enough. However, there must be some instructions missing as the process failed. Working with Remaster through Synaptic Manager, the iso was downloaded into my "home" folder into its own Remaster folder. It was not the iso, like you get when downloading a distro from the Internet, which downloads just an iso onto the Desktop. Inside the folder were a bunch of empty files (I know, because I opened them) and an iso . At this point the Remaster instruction stop. They do not say what to do with the other files, or what they have to do with the iso of my Ubuntu layout. So, like any other iso (once I knew which one was the iso of my setup), I double clicked on it and it ran me through the process of accessing the DVD to burn it. Which I did. I tested it and it failed with some kind of message to the effect that certain files were missing or it could not read it. So, I thought, I would have to do the 'hunt and peck' method and experiment a few times like I did with the ordinary distro downloads until I get it right. But first, I would have to dump the Remaster folder in the "home" folder since it took up so much space on my hard drive. Wrong! I come to find out it is in something called "root" and that I do not have permission to do anything with it but "copy" it. Great. Just great! Now what do I do. I tried to change permissions, but was not allowed to do that either. The only thing I could think of - and dread - was the idea of having to wipe my hard drive and go through the whole reinstall procedures, which takes me days, just because Remaster has locked itself into my system - and there is no 'back door' to get out of it.
