I am trying to solve multiple issues with my 64x natty install using gnome3 ppa( official ppa from gnome3). I have this setup on two machines, one is a fresh install the other is a upgrade. They both have most of these issues. Here they are: 1) Nautilus will not launch from the favorites bar. It does launch from a shortcut on the desktop. It will not run from the terminal unless I am root. 2) Number lock is disabled at startup (enabled in my bios). I used to be able to enable after nattty had started, I no longer can, though num lock light is lit - number keypad does not work!
3) I have set gnome3 set to let nautilus draw the background and desktop, I get a white screen at boot until Nautilus is launched then I get a background and some desktop icons(no computer or network icons). If I plug in a usb drive the icon appears on my desktop, when I select it I loose the background and have to select it again.
4) Wireless randomly will drop the connection, have to reconnect, sometimes it will, sometimes I have to reboot. I have Fedora installed on a 2nd hard drive on the machine with a clean install and the only similarity is it displays the default desktop until I launch Nautilus, then my background and desktop are displayed with all of the icons. From there on out Fedora has none of these issues. I have used Ubuntu Gnome and XFCE as my only os since 6.0 and have never had this many problems. Both machines would not run the gdm because of Nvidia issues after the upgrade and clean install. I DO NOT want to give up on Ubuntu as I tell all my friends and family to use it.
Upgraded from FC14 X64 to FC15 X64 yesterday. I've used gnome2 forever, its worked very well for me.My workstation has 4 displays driven by two nvidia cards. One with dual dvi outputs, the other with one dvi one vga. I use the proprietary nvidia driver, NOT nouveau. Each card ties its displays together with twinview, and then xinerama spans across the who cards. This worked splendidly on gnome2, WITHOUT compiz. I used to use compiz when i had two displays so that I could have nice wobbly windows and transparencies, all very nice, but the extra area of the 4 displays was much more important to me. See, xinerama breaks compiz.
When i upgraded from FC14 to 15, my displays went amok, i ended up having to upgrade my nvidia driver, an then couldnt get things working in gnome 3. Finally i fell back to kde, kde4, and lxde both work just as gnome 2 did with my 4 displays. Gnome 3 with Gnome-shell fails spectacularly. Even if I fall back to two displays on one card, its wonky, things dont display properly, and the overview sometimes breaks such that it wont even come up anymore. Gnome3 without gnome-shell also does not work, in fact, i cant even get into gnome, it gives me some error and logs me out when all 4 monitors are enabled, and with only 2, it works, but.. well.. I want my 4 displays!I'm almost certain that compiz is to blame. Gnome's "Fail safe" uses compiz, and i'm betting the compiz isnt working on my 4 displays, causing said error and logout. I have no idea what the heck gnome-shell is doing. It actually displays on two monitors, while the other two are black. The mouse is able to display on all 4, i'm unable to interact with the displays which show gnome, but the displays which are black, seem to respond to my clicks, but they respond on the two montiros which display gnome. Very strange.
I'm using sid and Gnome3 since two months. This morning I was operating an upgrade on my system with "aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade", and after rebooting gnome crash and tell me to restart my session.code...
Is there any others log files where gnome3 writes errors ?
So I glossed over the fact that installing Gnome3 from the PPA would break Unity for some reason, and now it's broken, and I can't even check it out. Is there a way to recover it and/or remove Gnome3, or is it a case of being out of luck unless I do a full reinstall?
i ve upgraded to natty 64 bit and have painstakingly re-configured my prev desktop settings (as in maverik) abd now i am held up on 2 items for which i have not found any solution.
a) bluetooth does not detect my nokia n 70 (n 70 detects my laptop but i cant send or receive any files unless it is paired)
b) alternatively when i try to send a file from nokia, it asks for pairing and i key in the pin. then the window hangs and i have to log out and log in. in bluetooth paired deviced i can find my nokia but i cant configure it to connect to the internet...
c) in office i have to connect through a proxy. i am not able to apply it system wide (as the option network proxy is not shown)

2.Can i install all gtk2 application now and also synapse program
I am running OpenSUSE 11.4 on my laptop and I decided to try out the Gnome 3 shell. I really like the design and I like the way it functions so I would like to keep using it, but it seems as though every time I install a new application or package it breaks Gnome 3. This is really frustrating because when I then try to log in it just gives me that cryptic error message that im sure you all have heard about "Oh No! Something went wrong!" or something like that and then it tells me to log out.
I know a fair bit about linux in general, but im no expert by any stretch of the imagination (my experiences have been with Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Linux Mint, and some older distros) so im only used to the Apt-get package manager and I find zypper to not be very understandable. So I don't know if im breaking Gnome 3 every time I install something because of some dependencies not getting installed. My laptop is running a Intel cure 2 duo processor and an Intel mobile graphics chipset (which runs gnome 3 fine normally).
I am installing fedora 15 in vmware 7.1.4.It tells me "Gnome3 failed to load and started in the fall back mode" when accessed in live-cd.Ever since fedora 15 beta or any other distros take gnome3 as default destop,I haven't experienced a beautiful normal gnome3
I keep getting the following msg as I try to upgrade from 10.04 -> 10.10 ... "Could not calculate the upgrade An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade: E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages. This can be caused by:
* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu * Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu * Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu
If none of this applies, then please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bug report." I don't think any of the issues above apply - can anyone offer advice on how to get around or "force " the upgrade
While upgrading to a newer version of Ubuntu I noticed a warning saying that the installation/upgrade should not be interupted. Unfortunately though, during this process my computer froze up and I had to shut it down. Ubuntu no longer starts on my computer. I still have Windows though, which is what I'm using now.
I tried to upgrade ubuntu from 9.10 to 10.04. It is almost complete downloading packages,but i get this error:Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...untu2_i386.deb The HTTP server sent an invalid Content-Range header [IP: 184.108.40.206 80]I tried to change from main server to US server, but I still get this error.
I am trying to upgrade from 10.4 to 10.10. I have never had a problem upgrading before with the Update Manager. Now I get an error message when using the Update Manager. The message says, "Could not calculate the upgrade". See screenshots. I also checked the package manager for broken packages and came up with nothing.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and 2.6.35-27-generic. When I run the Upgrade Manager, the 'Distribution Upgrade' window pops up and in bold letters reads 'Running partial upgrade'.
The next line reads '>Preparing to upgrade' and sits there. Mean while, the process begins to perform a great deal of constant hard drive activity. The window's horizontal activity bar reads 'Calculating the changes' at the bottom of the 'Distribution Upgrade' window.
I have a little bit problem ,and I want to ask you guys, if there are people who experience this thing like me, and how to get this right back. I have install gnome3 extension , the side bar, the alt-tab and some other stuffs via webupd8,
and just now, I was updating and upgrading my system via terminal. I sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and install , update everything, when I restart my computer, everything was gone back to normal, as in the gnome-shell interface, and there are no extension.
What should I do to get it back? do I need to follow the tutorial in webupd8 again? and , is there anyone out there, experience the same thing like me?
I have installed Gnome3 from gnome3-team PPA. Now the desktop has both gtk-2 as well as gtk-3 applications. I have observed that gtk-2 applications use a different theme while gtk-3 applications use a different one. Using gnome-tweak-tool, I'm able to change theme for gtk-3 applications, but I don't seem to be able to find a way to change the theme of gtk-2 applications.
I would like to install 10.10 preferably right now.But I'm having issues, dist-upgrade won't upgrade me for 10.04 to 10.10.I tried to go into my Update Manager, but it's not recognizing any new Ubuntu versions.I don't particularly want to wipe my system, so what should i do?
I installed gnome-shell from the respective PPA on my 11.04 ubuntu installation and I have problems running this combination smoothly! Sometimes when I log in I get Metacity windows and no Gnome session, sometimes I get the correct Gnome3 session...I guess that somehow the packages I have installed on my system got mixed up.Anyway: when I try to "sudo apt-get install gnome3-session" I get the following error:Quote:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: gnome3-session : Depends: gnome-session-bin (< 2.33) but 3.0.1-0ubuntu1~build2 is to be installed Depends: gnome-session-common (= 2.32.1-0ubuntu20) but 3.0.1-0ubuntu1~build2 is to be installed
