Ubuntu Installation :: Graphics And GUI No Longer Supported After Upgrade?

Mar 1, 2010

The last time I updated Linux it was from Gibbon to Heron. (so 7.10 to 8.04 ) I'm now trying to get caught back up. Thing is, now that I updated from 8.04 to 8.10 I can no longer get to a GUI. Also, most of the text in the terminal is a diamond character as if the font that's installed doesn't want to work most of the time. This is somewhat confusing, but I believe my system's language was set as Japanese before the upgrade and now it's trying to display Kana and/or Kanji and the terminal doesn't like that. Not really important, but I'm not sure how to proceed to the next upgrade or get to a GUI. Fortunately, my system's set up to dual-boot with windows. Can someone help tell me how to get my GUI back or what package to install?

I'm running on a laptop with an ATI mobility Radeon 9700. I've had problems with it and drivers in previous versions back to 6.10 too, but never to the point that the GUI wouldn't work.It's actually an issue with my X Server. I tried "startx" and it says "No Screens found". I looked in my xorg.conf file and there are two screens listed at the bottom. It produced a log too, but I can't get my Flash drive to mount so I can't say exactly what it says. It did mention that there were a lot of font directories that didn't exist along with a few other warnings.

Ubuntu :: Graphics Adapter No Longer Supported By ATI

Jan 23, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop. It is an older laptop with a Radeon Xpress 200m video card, which apparently is unsupported by the newest version of the proprietary ATI drivers. Right now I am using the default graphics adapter that was installed, however, all of my games run abysmally. There isn't one game I have played (World of Goo, Gish, Eschalon Book I) that has played decently. They all suffer from screen flicker and tremendous slowdowns. Is there any option for me since the 200m is no longer supported by ATI?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading With Least Amount Of Hassle - No Longer Supported Anymore

Aug 3, 2011

I would like to upgrade my linux distro, since I'm using Karmic Koala and it is no longer supported anymore. However, upgrading via the updater always breaks my system, so I want to do a clean install. However, I have a LOT of programs installed in this machine, including a good number of games. Otherwise I think most of my data is neatly confined to my home folder, which I can easily transfer via external hard drive.

How do I get all my programs over, however? Like my PDF printer, for example, or all my games, or Inkscape, or Skype, or any number of things that I have installed. Especially WICD. I can never get my wireless internet to work without WICD. I will make a list of my programs beforehand, just in case something goes wrong, but is there any kind of less painful and time-consuming way to do this than going back and installing every program all over again from scratch?

Ubuntu :: Upgraded Firefox - Error "Your Browser Is No Longer Supported. Please Upgrade To A Modern Browser."

Aug 2, 2010

i just updated from karmic 9.10 to lucid 10.04 using the online upgrade option. so far everything is working great. the only issues i am having seem to involve firefox. when i visit videos i get the message "your browser is no longer supported. please upgrade to a modern browser." i am running 3.6 "canonical" so it is "modern". i am able to watch videos after i close the message. it's just an annoyance to get this message every time i view a video.

next, is on some websites (like this one) it will not supply my login info. but on a few sites (like ebay) it does supply my login info. not sure why some sites work while others don't. the info is there when i look under my saved passwords....

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Songbird No Longer Being Supported

Jun 8, 2010

I'm well aware of Songbird no longer being supported for Linux but I know there is .deb package out there somewhere. Hopefully in the latest release for Linux as well. 've searched but have found nothing. The thing is, I can't find anything 'I like' other than Songbird. It's such a shame its no longer supported.

Ubuntu Installation :: Sound No Longer Works After Upgrade From 9.04 To 9.10?

Feb 15, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 and the sound on my machine no longer works. I was previously using the OSS for sound. I'd like the sound solution that requires the minimal effort and I don't necessarily need to run OSS again. Ubuntu is installed on a Dell Optiplex 960.

aplay -l
results in:
aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...

Ubuntu Installation :: Can No Longer Open Documents After Upgrade

Mar 10, 2010

gedit has not been able to detect the character coding.Please check that you are not trying to open a binary file.Select a character coding from the menu and try again.If I open OpenOffice first and then the document it works fine. If I use the shortcut directly, it won't open.Not overly impressed with 9.10 so far; things seem much slower, and it's certainly not as simple to find things as the old layout was.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Graphics Card Fully Supported In 11.04?

Jul 12, 2011

I have a lenovo ideapad z570 with intel i5 2nd gen 2410m processor and intel integrated graphics. In lshw, my graphics are shown as: "2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller"

glxinfo| grep render
direct rendering: Yes

OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Sandybridge Mobile GEM 20100330 DEVELOPMENT x86/MMX/SSE2
Compiz works fine, so do some 2D games. However, performance is choppy on most other games(2D and 3D).

Are these graphics fully supported by Ubuntu yet? If not, does any other linux flavour have support for this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Computer Will No Longer Boot Into XP After Upgrade / Sort It?

May 8, 2010

My knowledge of how Linux works is very limited. I've used it for about a year, but just doing very basic tasks (browsing the Internet, listening to music, etc).

Anyway, I upgraded to the newest edition of Ubuntu and installed the new Grub as the update seemed to recommend installing it to every partition and hard drive. I've seen that other people are now having issues from doing that as well.

I am able to boot into Linux just fine; it is working great. However, when I attempted to load Windows XP from Grub, the computer would just restart. I followed the recommendation listed here: http://ubuntu-ky.ubuntuforums.org/sh...95&postcount=3 which seemed to fix the problem for Windows 7 users. Now, all I get when I attempt to load XP is a blank screen with nothing but a blinking cursor (but hey, at least the computer isn't just automatically re-booting, that's some sort of progress...maybe...)

Ubuntu Installation :: Intermediate Distrution Upgrade / No Longer Boots

Jul 22, 2010

Summary: After intermediate upgrade, Ubuntu Lucid LTS 10.04 64bit Desktop Edition will "NOW" not run in any Graphics mode on my machine.

General; Ubuntu has been my favorite OS to live on, play and relax. I have to use other OS'es, but I choose Ubuntu as "mine". I can go around it safely and tweak it to my own likings and needs. It has also been a great tool to exchange things between other OS'es.

History: I started with Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.04 64bit Desktop Edition. Last March, I upgraded to Ubuntu Lucid LTS 10.04beta 64bit Desktop via the Update Manager, using Ubuntu's instructions... as a Beta Tester. I kept up with Updates and everything had been fine.All went well, albiet minor adventures that gave me oportunities for enriched challenges and training. Overall, since the early days of that, my system has been very stable and reliable- Until last Saturday through Yesterday...

Problems: First thing I noticed is that there were some security updates Friday. Saturday when I came up into Ubuntu, it came up in error saying it had to come up in a low graphics mode. I shut down the system and restarted. It came up fine and I thought nothing more of it at the time...

Second, I tried to install Ubuntu Lucid LTS 10.04 64bit Server Edition on another drive. My other drives were isolated. Although the install said it was successful, on reboot, it would not boot the system. It would get a purple splash on my screen, then either lockup or go to a text based screen dump. Server Platforms said this was a text based OS and couldn't explain the purple flash or the error... I shelved this project until later and thought nothing more of it.I checked for updates through the weekend (even though there usually isn't any on weekends), and as usual it said everything was up-to-date.

Third, Monday the "Update Manager" said there was too many updates to do at once, that it needed to do a partial update. I selected, but it couldn't complete, because it said that there was conflict on a KDE package that it said it needed to remove, but couldn't because it was in a blacklist. It further said that this could have resulted from a DEV vervion of Ubuntu.

Fourth, I upgraded some packages through the Synaptic Package Manager, to try to reduce the number of packages that the Update Manager was trying to update. All those packages said they updated fine. I then went back to the Update Manager and it still said it needed to do a partial update... but it completed and said it was successful. I noticed that the top of the dialog box was tiltled "Distrubution Upgrade." I noticed that some of the files seemed to be an xorg upgrade... After the update, I had to do other things, so I shut down my system.

That was the last time this machine has been able to start Ubuntu. When Ubuntu tried to startup, it said it had to boot in a low graphics mode, but could not- it blasted the monitor with vertical purple and red lines.I had a copy of the Ubuntu Lucid LTS 10.05 64bit Desktop Edition LiveCD on my other machine. I burned a CD and tried. The only mode I can get to boot from the CD (on my machine) is in a text console- no xwindows system. On starting up an xwindows system will blast the grahics of the monitor, then (sometimes) continue to a monitor test-based screen dump that flashes by until the system locksup.

Ubuntu Installation :: Apt Preferences No Longer Respected AfterMaverick Upgrade?

Oct 12, 2010

Upgraded to 10.10 with update-manager last night, apart from an xorg.conf.d location change and a custom xfce applet that needed recompiling all went smoothly... until I tried another dist-upgrade.

Previous I had debian lenny and squeeze available in apt - I know this is dumb but a sync program I use requires binary versions to be identical (unison), and I sync with a debian squeeze server.

deb http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free

Ubuntu Installation :: After 11.04 Upgrade Hard Disk No Longer Mounts

May 11, 2011

I have one hard disk (call her HDA) that contains nothing but a single ext4 partition containing a backup of all my important data. I did a clean install of 10.10 on my primary hard disk (call her HDB) and from there proceeded to the 11.04 upgrade. In 10.10, I was able to read HDA just fine. However after the upgrade, I can no longer mount this drive.

When mounting from file browser:
Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

The end of dmesg said the following:
dmesg | tail
[49.853308] wlan0: associated
[50.084874] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready
[52.859533] Intel AES-NI instructions are not detected.
[52.890955] padlock_aes: VIA PadLock not detected.
[60.710006] wlan0: no IPv6 routers present
[82.130904] EXT4-fs (sda): bad geometry: block count 122096646 exceeds size of device (122096381 blocks) .....
[96.010858] EXT4-fs (sda): bad geometry: block count 122096646 exceeds size of device (122096381 blocks)
[107.791812] EXT4-fs (sda): bad geometry: block count 122096646 exceeds size of device (122096381 blocks)
[322.758948] EXT4-fs (sda): bad geometry: block count 122096646 exceeds size of device (122096381 blocks)
[516.932403] EXT4-fs (sda): bad geometry: block count 122096646 exceeds size of device (122096381 blocks)

For some reason my hard disk has a block count greater than the size of my device. I've done my background searching on this and tried a command line utility I've never heard of before:
# sudo e2fsck /dev/sda
e2fsck 1.41.14 (22-Dec-2010)
The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 122096646 blocks
The physical size of the device is 122096381 blocks
Either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt!
Abort<y>? yes

And this is as far as I've got. I'm really hesitant to start fiddling around and experimenting with possible fixes because the backup data on this drive holds a decade's worth of work for me and is extremely valuable (hence why I have a spare drive for backups). I really didn't think that the Ubuntu upgrade process would mess with this drive, seeing as the Ubuntu install was contained on an entirely different drive. Any safest way for me to recover this data? Data preservation is the #1 priority for me here. I need to copy all of this data over to my primary drive where Ubuntu is installed. After that, I can reformat this "broken" backup drive.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 10.10 To 11.04 - Graphics Not Recognized?

May 1, 2011

I recently upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04

I have a Dell GX260 with on board intel graphics chip 845G - believe

This seemed to work fine in 10.10 and indeed from version 9.04

After the upgrade to 11.04 I can only run in basic graphics mode -

I have been to the grub menu and taken the recovery option and attempted to reset the graphics mode - it says it cant detect the graphics card or input devices

I have also been to a root shell via grub and tried the command 'X -configure'

this seems to end abnormally but does produce a xorg.conf file - this file makes the graphics unstable with menu bars and such have overflows and lockups -

Ubuntu :: Making Leap - Will ATI HD5730 Graphics Card Be Supported

Nov 18, 2010

I can't believe you guys are on 10.10 Already that's amazing been so many changes since I last joined in 2007. I have a few questions regarding my new laptop and Ubuntu I was hoping to get answered before I make the switch from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 10.10 Small tidbit: Using 64x Ubuntu Question #1: Will my ATI HD5730 Graphics Card be Supported?

- When I say supported I also mean some of the features, I Currently use a 62" LCD 1080p HDTV as my Monitor using an HDMI Output to my Surround Sound Receiver. Will I still be able to do this? and will my 5.1 audio output still work? Noticed when I googled it some people were having troubles with 5730

Question #2: Is the Core i7 840qm Supported?

Question #3: Has any large scale break troughs happened with Ubuntu and Gaming? Back when it was Gusty and Hardy there was little high end game choice, wondering if that has made any progress?

Question #4: Have people had Success with Ubuntu and Dell Studio XPS?

Ubuntu Servers :: Management Tool For Multiple Server Instances - Webmin No Longer Supported

Jun 20, 2010

i started to look into upgrading my LTS ubuntu server instances to Lucid. one the notable things that i have discovered is the lack of support for Webmin; it seems that Debian is no longer supporting packages required by Webmin. But it also appears that ubuntu team believes that Webmin may actually cause problems as it works in a different way than that presumed by Ubuntu. so i am now left with no way to manage my 10+ instances of ubuntu server that i used for studying and research. it seems that i am left with cluster-ssh as an alternative. but are there other alternatives, ideally similar to webmin?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Upgrade - Choppy Desktop Graphics With ATI?

Apr 29, 2011

Just upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04.Under 10.10, moving windows, scrolling, and compiz's expo were smooth as silk with my Radeon HD 5450 using the fglrx driver. After the upgrade, these things are very choppy, to the point that it feels like I'm running without hardware acceleration. The weird thing is, the system tells me I have acceleration --- Compiz is still running and I'm able to use expo and other effects, glxinfo reports direct rendering, and the Additional Drivers control panel tells me I'm still using fglrx (I even tried re-installing it, to no avail). OpenGL screensavers work fine, and glxgears gives me 1550 fps. Could it be that compiz is somehow not using hardware acceleration, even though my driver offers it? This happens in both Unity and Classic desktop.

Hardware :: Supported 1280x1024 On Old Graphics Card S3VirgeDX?

May 13, 2010

First the Hardware:

- Celeron 500mhz with 256megs or RAM
- S3Virge DX Card with 4megs of RAM in a PCI slot
- Envision EN9410e LCD with native resolution of 1280x1024
- Sidux distro running (Debian Sid)

Things I have tried:

1. Without any post install configuration: GDM and XFCE booted up with an 800x600 screen size. Looks great, but size is too small would like the native resolution of 1280x1024.

2. Created a xorg.conf file with the command "Xorg -configure". First added the horizSync rates and the VertRefresh rates. File had "s3virge" as the driver listed for the card. Screen section I added under 16 depth and 24 depth the Modes "1280x1024". This results in GDM starting with colors all messed up in vertical lines and barely able to read the screen details. The resolution is correct, but the colors are completely messed up making it hard to read anything with vertical lines running through everything.

3. Changed the above xorg.conf file to use the "vesa" driver. GDM starts up in 1280x1024 and the colors look perfect, but when I log into XFCE it bombs out when the desktop appears and takes me back to the GDM log in page, never letting me run the XFCE desktop.

4. Ran an old Knoppix 5.1 CD and it configured a beautiful desktop with I believe a 1024x768 desktop and great colors. It looked like it was using the vesa driver when I looked at the XFree86 config file.

5. Ran ddcprobe and it identified the "vesa" driver with the S3virge DX card and showed the possible resolutions which included 1280x1024x32k and 1280x1024x64k. Once again leading me to believe that it should be possible to use this card with this monitor and use the monitor's native resolution of 1280x1024.

Any ideas what I could do to get this resolution or is it just impossible with this hardware? Do I have to settle with 800x600? #3 try boggles my mind because I can't figure out why GDM would look perfect but then it would bomb back to the GDM screen instead of starting XFCE.
