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?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Uninstall Firefox Nor Can Uninstall Chromium

Jun 19, 2011

I cannot uninstall Firefox, nor can I uninstall Chromium; one always stays if the other is uninstalled. For example, if I remove Firefox, Chromium will appear in its place and vice versa. This has got to be one of the weirdest bugs I've ever seen on Ubuntu! So, how can I uninstall both web browsers?

Ubuntu Installation :: Uninstall LAMP Server And Drupal 7 Installation?

Jul 4, 2011

I am trying to uninstall my LAMP server and my Drupal 7 installation. Unfortunately I cannot find any instructions on uninstalling Druapl from my system. The ones that exist are far too old( < 2008 ) to be relevant. Could someone please direct me how to go about this? Note: I did not use Synaptic for installation. I downloaded the file from the drupal.org site.

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 :: Cannot Uninstall 10.10 And Grub

Nov 4, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 along with my Windows 7 operating system. After quite a bit of trial and testing, I've decided to remove Ubuntu. I probably did this incorrectly, but I deleted the Ubuntu partition from within Windows 7 partition manager. The next time I booted the system, the computer tried booting with Grub and failed due to not finding the partition.I've since reinstalled Ubuntu just to be able to dual-boot again. How do I cleanly remove Ubuntu and the Grub boot manager?

Ubuntu Installation :: Uninstall 11.04 & Return To 10.04?

Jun 15, 2011

I dual boot with XP, My upgrade to 11.04 has been two weeks of FUBAR. I want the 10.04 LTS again. With the 10.04 disk in, I get to the point of "Prepare Disk Space"; it shows XP-pro 81Gb and Ubuntu 11.04 75Gb. There I must choose side-by-side, Use Entire Disk, or Specify partitions Manually. My Question/Problem> The new 11.04 kernel seems so incompatible with my system that I wonder if I need to delete or reformat. Am I likely to have success if I just tell it to do side-by-side.

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Safely Uninstall Peppermint OS

May 13, 2010

In my case, getting fed up with Lucid's flaky behaviour with my particular display, having tried various solutions that were really only half-baked workarounds (the best being to install a mainline kernel) - I decided to install Peppermint Linux next to Ubuntu, thus creating a dual boot system. But I've decided I don't really like Peppermint Linux. Further, in the meantime, I've found a workaround for Lucid which (so far) seems like a longer term solution (I installed Kernel xxxx?-22, while increasing my display's refresh rate - and now all is hunky-dory - it starts perfectly, with a 'normal' visual effects desktop, and even Cheese no longer crashes the system with my old webcam).

Now here's the rub....
How to (a) uninstall Peppermint Linux (with its Grub - which was obviously set over Lucid's) (b) reclaiming the whole hard drive (it's only 40gb total - as it's an oldish machine) for Lucid - without having to reinstall Lucid, which I now have very nicely set up indeed, albeit currently squeezed for space? Is there some nice patient geek out there who can put me out of my misery with a step by step guide? I've tried Google - but everyone with a similar problem seems to want to reclaim the space for Windows!
