I am using Ubuntu 10.04 , but after updating ubuntu using update manager, I am unable to install software using software Centre.When I click install button the software centre does nothing. Update manager concluded
Decided to try out Ubuntu instead of automatically getting the next Windows OS.
I have a Dell Dimension E310 with on board video card (will be relevant soon, I think).
After trying making my own CD and not being able to at least run the LiveCD (thought it was my fault even thought the MD5 #'s matched correctly), I went to Shipit and got a CD delivered of Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid). When I put the CD into my computer while running windows, the CD is not recognized, which seems strange to me. When I put the same CD into my work laptop (note that both computers are running XP), I can see the contents of the CD. Decide that it might not be an issue and restart the computer in the hope of booting from the CD. CD is never recognized and looking at the bootmenu, it has USB-cdRom at the top of the list.
More information: CPU is an Intel Pentium 4, 3.2Ghz. I don't believe it is a 64bit computer but I can't verify that. I mention this because I believe the CD I got is the 32bit version and that it should be sufficient but I figured I'd throw it out there in case someone else knew something.
I want to install Ubuntu Server distro. First i downloaded ubuntu-10.04.1-server-amd64.iso and "burned" it to my usb-pen using UltraIso software for windows. That booted from the usb, but just after punshing in the language etc it complains that it cant find the cdrom or something like that. then i try the [url], but that wont boot at all with this same iso mentioned above. and burn it to a darn CD. it boots, but somewhere during the process it stops and asks for the same cd that is actually in the drive already. there is a thread about this here: [url] I then wanted to find an easy iso that i could throw on my usb-pen and install the whole thing through ftp like i did in the old days with floppies. but man, i got lost in the documentation with no clear path on how to do it.
I just purchased a new PC with the following specs:
Intel Core i5-760 ASUS P5P55D-E LX (S1156 mobo) Sapphire HD 5750 Vapor-X 1GB Video Card Samsung 1TB HDD Corsair DDR3 PC1333 Gaming RAM - 2x2GB DVD: Samsung DVD burner (internal)
I have made several trials to install Lucid Lynx but all failed:
1. Installed Windows 7 64-bit, hdd formatted as NTFS and ext3, then trying to install Lucid Lynx 32-bit : failed.
2. Installed Windows XP 32-bit, hdd formatted as FAT32, then trying to install Lucid Lynx 32-bit : failed.
3. Trying to install Lucid Lynx 32-bit with a clean hdd formatted as FAT32: failed.
In all the scenarios above, I have tried using Ubuntu installers on CD, DVD, or USB. on CD and DVD, the process always stopped after the Ubuntu logo screen, not even reached the langauage selection screen. On USB, with Legacy set to On in the BIOS, it did run and started by the option screen where we get to choose booting from the usb, or booting from hdd, or memory test, etc., but after choosing the booting from usb (and then hdd also) option, the process also stopped after the Ubuntu logo screen. I have experience dual booting Windows XP with Lucid Lynx on an older system, so I'm not completely new in this. I'd like to know what actually went wrong?
I recently ran "sudo apt-get autoremove" in the terminal and I was given an error message citing the following:
I believe this is a result of a failed Banshee Media Player installation that left the specific package installed. I ended up removing Banshee entirely. I have tried using Synaptic Package Manager and Computer Janitor to remove the package, but neither has worked, both returned the error exit status 2 message. Computer stats are in my signature.
I have just upgraded my OS from ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04.Now I'm facing problem of not having write permissions to USB drives (Pen drives).I have to use terminal with sudo to copy , move files and unmount media.
I'm having an annoying issue with my display configuration.
Motherboard: MSI 760gm-e51 CPU: AMD Phenom II 955 Quadcore MEM: 8Gbs DDR3 VGA: ATI Radeon HD4850 ATI Radeon 3000 (on board)
All four monitors work fine with two X servers ( 2 monitors each instances) on Ubuntu 9.10 with surroundview enabled in the BIOS. I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.4 and all i get is 4 blank screens. when i disable surroundview in the BIOS with PCIE as default display the HD4850 work great. I should add that on both installs i used the latest atalyst 10.4. It seems like there's something wrong with Ubuntu 10.04.
I created an installation CD and even a usb stick of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx and Natty Narwhal and I keep having freezes during installation.
1. Set my BIOS to boot on CD/ usb stick 2. My computer starts to boot from CD/ usb stick 3. Ubuntu logo plus 5 dots screen shown 4. After that I am shown a snowy green screen with white lines running lengthwise and it freezes.
I already tried creating a new CD and usb stick after re-downloading the .iso installation file and creating the process of creating an installer over and over but still the same problem. Is it a hardware problem or my installer is the problem. I tried installing my old CD of Ubuntu Jaunty that I requested from Ubuntu a long time ago and I can install it without any problems. I am using Jaunty right now...........
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an old desktop computer so that I could use it for Rails. I installed Ruby, rubygems and Rails using
Code: sudo apt-get install and it works fine, but I cannot install Mongrel through
Code:sudo gem install mongrel,it's giving me this block of error message:
Code:Building native extensions. This could take a while...ERROR: Error installing mongrel:
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
extconf.rb:8:in `require': no such file to load -- mkmf (LoadError)from extconf.rb:8.I tried removing the rubygem 1.3.5 package that came with the Ubuntu repository and downloaded Rubygems 1.3.6 from rubygems.org, but when I tried the same command, it still gives me the same error.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.4 and I really don't like the new theme, so I went ahead and installed the Human theme from the terminal and now I'm trying to install the Tango icons so it can looks like the Human theme from 9.04. For example, in the "System" menu there are no icons, it's all empty. That's what I'm trying to do.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop. It's a Latitude D830. Everything's working well, which is why I decided to start customizing Ubuntu's look. My first stop was gnomelook.org and the other popular theme website for gnome(cant remember the name).Anyway, I could not find what I wanted in a theme so I turned to Ultimate Edition's website. I followed their instructions to add their repo to sources.list. Then tried to install one of the theme packs, only to be told that 'usplash' could not be installed. WHAT!? So, I went ahead and googled the message and found out that 10.04 no longer uses 'usplash', it uses 'plymouth'.
UE's website claims that their themes can be installed in any version of the official Ubuntu releases. All I had to do was follow their instructions to add the repo to sources.list, which I did.Can I force install a theme pack and bypass the 'usplash' error? maybe at the command line with apt?found another site with the Ultimate Edition themes and direct download links. I installed the latest one(UE 2.6 theme pack), package installer didn't complain, installation was successful, but the theme is nowhere to be found on my system. LOL I even went into Synaptic, searched for the theme, it didn't come up.
I have tried out Lucid Lynx Beta 1 back in march. During the installation I was announced that support for bluetooth was dropped. I installed anyway, thinking it would be back in the Final Release. Meanwhile (between March and April) I reinstalled Karmic because I really needed the bluetooth. I can see in the upgrade that bluetooth still isn't available. What should I do about this? Is there a way to keep Lucid Lynx and bluetooth? Or will I have to stay on Karmic until the end of times?
While leaving my laptop to install the upgrades, I hadn't noticed how the power cord had slipped loose. When I came back my computer must have shut off due to battery loss. When I booted up my computer again, I couldn't boot up Ubuntu under any of the kernels, -20,-19, etc. I get cryptic messages such as "unable to enumerate USB device on port 2," device not accepting messages," and "device descriptor read." i definitely intend to recover my data. I had been upgrading from 9.10 to the latest version of lucid lynx.
I want to try OpenSUSE but don't want to get rid of Ubuntu yet. How can I install it so I will be able to dual boot? I have an empty partition of ~150GB ready for it.When I am installing OpenSUSE 11.3 I get this content in the boot section:
The bootloader is installed on a partition that does not lie entirely below 128 GB. The system might not boot.
After my 8.04 debacle here:I basically gave up on trying to write an install guide for Hardy and Amanda. Others had done it better and with how muddled I was by the end of getting a working server, I wasn't sure I could repeat it.Now in Lucid, I've managed to get another working amanda server going, I'm fairly sure I can repeat it and but I question:Installation with 'apt-get install amanda-server' uses the user backup in the group backup.Installation of the ZWC client uses the user amandabackup. while thankfully ZWC has included reg keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREmandaWC1.0Install BackupUserHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREmandaWC1.0Install RecoveryUserto change the user on the client, this is messy, requires regedit (which normally is locked out by group policy), editing the service in service.msc and creation of a new user account named backup in addition to the installer's default on each client.The actual question is:1) Is there a reason for the use of backup:backup? (rather than amandabackup:disk or amandabackup:backup) 2) Is there any sort of flag that could be set, script to change the user within the repo atinstall time.Or generally an easier way of doing this than compiling each time I do an install.
But when I look in my sources.list, the PPA repository is not there. Nevertheless I SUSPECT I'm receiving it's updates.Is there a file that PPAs are being written to other than sources.list?Should I manually update sources.list in order to add this PPAs?
I installed lucid lynx over a year ago on a IBM A20m laptop. I've been happily using ubuntu up to now until yesterday when I installed Tor and Torbutton. When I rebooted, I got a blank screen after the IBM startup routine. Thinking that somehow the system got corrupted by my Tor installation, I decided to reinstall lucid lynx from the CD. Surprise! The install CD also gives a blank screen!
I hit a key to get the menu and and the three first three choices all result in the same blank screen: * Try Ubuntu without installing * Install Ubuntu * Check disk for defects
To help debug this, I tried setting the F6 option nomodeset and I removed "quiet splash" from the boot options.
I was using the 9.10 version of Ubuntu, and everything was ok. So I decided to update to 10.04, by update manager, and it not works pretty well. So I decided to reinstall my ubuntu. In my PC I also have a instalation of Windows XP, my father and sister uses it. The installation went well, no problems, Lucid Lynx is working fine. But in the grub screen, if you choose Win XP, the CPU starts to whisthle continuously, and the only thing you can do is restart.
I have been reading about it, but do not find the exactly same problem. I have posted a thread in a portuguese forum (im from Brasil) and have no good responses. Sorry about the bad English, I dont have to much experience writing.
I've downloaded 10.04 desktop (twice) and server (once). The server install will boot fine, but the desktop install goes to a blank screen (and the monitor goes to sleep) after leaving the Live CD menu (Run from CD, Install, Check Files, Boot 1st HD, etc.).My first try at downloading the desktop CD was using BitTorrent, and appeared to go OK. Burned the .iso image, booted, and when I got the blank screen I suspected the Intel D101GGC motherboard using the Radeon Xpress 200 chipset had problemsI tried adding boot options (F6) such as vga=711 and xforcevesa and text. No joyOthers seemed to have gotten a successful install so I turned may attention to the CD, suspecting it was a bad download/burn, and downloaded 10.04 desktop again from mirror.pnl.gov/releases/. The two .iso images compared equal, so I used a different CD burner, with different media and got CDs which compare identical. Both CDs fail. Then I downloaded the server CD from PNL and it ran! I could select the "test CD" function, which ran in a text mode and said the server CD was OK. I started the install, and it went OK.
after upgrading to lucid lynx ubuntu doesn't boot with the new kernels 2.6.32-22-generic and 2.6.32-23-generic (also in recovery mode). But it's does boot with the previous 2.6.31-21-generic kernel. At the time i was hoping to wait it out, but a new kernel has come and the problem persisted. I've been trying to find a solution for this but somehow, amid lots of failed boot blank black screen threads, i didn't relate to any solution. The boot seems to go well until a pixelated logo appears (before the login screen), then goes to a blank black screen and there it stays stuck with no remedy. Looking into dmesg logs - albeit some differences between 2.6.31-21 and the newer 2.6.32-23 - the failed boot seems proper in both logs. In Xorg logs the differences are bigger but i cannot pinpoint a source for this problem.
My Mythweb is asking for authentication but none username/password will work. It just prompts for authentication over and over again. I've found few configurations regarding authentication:
in /etc/apache2/httpd.conf I have following lines: <Directory "/var/www/mythweb"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AuthType Basic AuthName "MythTV" AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/httpd-passwords require user user1 user2 [Code]...
none of the username/paswd pairs in Authuserfile are working? Can there be yet another file / configuraton somewhere? How do I know which one apache is using right now?
I just did a distribution upgrade on my laptop from 9.1 to 10.04, and it went fine for the most part except this issue. After it boots up, I don't see any window titles/scrollbars/borders and on clicking the icon for "Show desktop" on the bottom left I see the following error message: "Your window manager does not support the show desktop button, or you are not running a window manager."
After googling a bit, I realized that gnome-wm is not starting automatically and so I have to manually start each time to see the windows working properly. Can somebody tell me if there is a way to make sure that gnome-wm starts automatically? I know I can put it in my .bashrc but I want to do it the correct way if possible. If not, I will have to go with that workaround
