Ubuntu Multimedia :: GThumb 2.11 Installation Results In Failure

Jan 13, 2010

For several reasons I still use Ubuntu 9.04 and for other reasons I dont like F-Spot for image-management (especially because it lacks the feature to manually sort your images -- or is there a way to do this?). gThumb lets me create manually sorted catalogs of images, so I use this piece of software. I would like to test the new (unstable) version -- 2.11 -- instead of 2.10, but it requires libexif-2.4 -- Jaunty has libexif 2.5 by default and I dont know a way to downgrade to 2.4. Is this possible somehow? I was trying both installing gThumb 2.11 from deb package and compiling it from source, both with the same result -- failure.

Feb 8, 2010

I have loaded 9.10 ( 64 bit ) under VMWare Workstation 6.5 and each new install results in fast audio ( mp3 ) and video ( avi, mpg, etc ) playback. I am trying to keep the installs as vanilla as possible. My other VM distros are fine.

Fedora :: GThumb Slideshow Will Not Stop On Current Image

Nov 29, 2010

I started using gThumb for viewing images and it's perfect except for one thing. Sometimes I have many pictures in a folder and I want to interrupt the slide show to browse the net or send an email. The problem is that after pressing F5, the slideshow reverts to the first picture in the set and I've got to find where I was up to, which can be very time consuming. Since gThumb is now at version 2.12.0 it's absolutely certain there's a setting for this but, try as I might, I can't find it.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Always Results In Black Screen Any Variant?

Jun 8, 2010

I have a fairly old laptop that has been running 8.04. I got the 10.04 alternative CD and updated the system. After the reboot the screen just stays blank. I have left it running for some time to see if anything happens. I have tried to CTRL+ALT+F1 to get a console. But nothing.

So I looked up some solutions on the internet and decided to try xubuntu too see if this may be related to the low (old) specs of the laptop. Got the xubuntu CD. But even booting from the xubuntu CD (try before you install) results in a blank screen. 9.10 boots fine from the CD, but I have not tried to install it yet.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Upgrade Needs More Space / App That Results From Sudo Apt-get Clean?

Jan 27, 2011

forgive me for raising a common problem again, but I cannot find a fix in the other threads.
I am trying to catch up on upgrades. Step 1 is to get up to 9.10 from 9.04
Doing so however I am being told I don't have enough disk space
I present have my 35-odd GB HDD partitioned:
6GB for Ubuntu
28 for Data
and 1. or so for swap

evidently I underestimated my Ubuntu partition.

what can I do now?

I have run Computer Janitor (is that the application that results from Sudo apt-get clean? I did that but couldn't figure out how to "clean"?)

I have Gparted installed but I don't see how to use the Move/Resize option.

Ubuntu Installation :: Failed Update Of 10.10 Results In Unbootable System?

Feb 4, 2011

yesterday I performed an automatic security update suggested by the update manager on my virtualized (with VirtualBox on a Windows 7 host) Ubuntu 10.10 installation.

The update somehow failed and left me with an unbootable system. When I try to boot, I am told that various folders, files, and what not are missing. Then the system drops into a busybox and leaves me with an (initramfs) prompt.

This happens with all kernels I get offered by GRUB, although the error messages are quite different from kernel to kernel.

Well, the short of it is this: I don't have the slightest idea on how to get back to a working system and this site is the final straw I'm willing to grab. A complete disaster like this following an update initiated and executed by the system is unheard of in Windows-land; at least I haven't heard of it, yet, and therefore I am going to abandon Ubuntu and Linux altogeteher, if there is no remedy.

Fedora :: GThumb Image Viewer Delete - Files Moved To Trash

Mar 4, 2010

When I am deleting pictures using gThumb image viewer it asks "The selected images will be moved to Trash, are you sure?" And if I press "yes" button - it moves message to ~/.Trash, can it be configured to move them into "real" trash? I have created symbolic link and it solved part of my problems, but files "restore" option is unavailable to files which were moved in to trash by this method.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Failure On Startup 9.1

Jan 24, 2010

About 1 hour after successfully installing 9.10, the window elements started flickering and were inaccessible. I was working on intalling dimdim, but I did not touch any system files around the time the failure occurred. Thereafter, any regular login attempt results in a flickering black box on top of the new dim-gray-light ubuntu login window. The machine needs to be rebooted to get out of this mode. System restore mode works perfectly. startx starts the x environment, but with the flickering and uselnessness. The machine is a dual bood Ubuntu/Vista box (yeah, I know, Vista came with it). It is an intel quad core 2.33 MHz processor. The video is a cheapo on-board type. I have included system stats at the end of this message.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVD Playback Failure On New Install 10.04

I have tried loading/playing (many different) dvds via VLC / new install of 10.04 (on a laptop through which I had been able to play / burn / rip dvds until I "upgraded")...this is what transpires:

Playback failure:
DVDRead could not open the disc "/dev/sr0".
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/sr0'. Check the log for details.
The log reveals:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Failure To Install Nvidia Driver?

May 7, 2011

I'm having issues installing the nvidia-96 driver package on the new Lubuntu 11.04. I have a GeForce4ti 4200 card and have had that driver package install successfuly on numerous flavors of Ubuntu over the years.

apt-get spits out the following error:

Code: The following packages have unmet dependencies: nvidia-96 : Depends: xorg-video-abi-8.0 but it is not installable Depends: xserver-xorg-core (>= 2: but it is not going to be installed
Meanwhile, a check of the currently installed xserver-xorg-core through apt-cache shows:


The nouveau driver does work, but I would really like full 3d acceleration like I have had in the past.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Installation Failure On Dedicated HD?

Feb 4, 2010

After having tested Ubuttu 9.10 on a VM with Win XP Pro as host and running both Ubuntu 9.10 and 8.04 from a CD/CDR drive I decided to do an installation of 8.04 on a separate HD and import files.Installation seemed to work OK, but on reboot: no menu was shown to choose OS and the machine booted directly into Windows.Tried to boot directly from the "Ubuntu" HD in the BIOS boot menu and get the message "MBR error" full stop literally.The Ubuntu hard drive is no longer recognised in Windows , can't be acessed from the DOS prompt and obviously cannot be reformatted from there.Just for the record, I'm not totally excluding operator error from the cause

Fedora Installation :: VirtualBox 13 Guest: Live CD Installation Failure

Aug 3, 2010

Running VirtualBox 3.2.6 under some host OS (should be irrelevant which one, right?), I created a machine, intending to install Fedora 13 on it. Got the Fedora 13 Live CD iso image, and an 8.6 GB virtual hard drive, completely blank. I set the machine to boot off the Live CD image. The Live CD boots nicely and I get to its desktop. I open "Install to Hard Drive"...and nothing happens. No error message, zip, nada. Inspection of the system shows a series of odd file systems, but I have no clue what they are for and whether they're usable or not.

The sticky [URL] mentions that the blank virtual hard disk should be partitioned and formatted beforehand...So I did, using the Live CD's Disk Utility (Applications: System Tools: Disk Utility). Although the sticky states the small /boot partition should be ext2 or ext3, the Live CD installer proposes to reformat it as ext4. Shouldn't we have formatted it as ext4 right away, then? Also, the installer set the /boot partition's size to 524 MB, not 200 MB as recommended by the sticky.

OBSERVATION: This was not easy because VirtualBox sets the display to 800x600 at most, and the Disk Utility spills beyond those confines WITHOUT PROVIDING SLIDERS. It was sheer luck that the required buttons (create partition, format partition) were barely reachable (at the bottom edge of the screen). This is a serious problem, because increasing the VirtualBox display size can only be done *after* installation (see for instance[URL] - since this guest addition requires rebooting the guest OS, it probably won't stick to the Live CD).

Once those two partitions are prepared and the virtual machine rebooted, "Install to Hard Drive" works as expected.

OBSERVATION: It is absolutely inexcusable that the Live CD installer (Anaconda?) does not propose to do this partitioning and formatting for the user. It is even more inexcusable that it should fail without giving any feedback whatsoever to the user.

Aside: VirtualBox's guest additions does not work correctly (for 3.2.6 anyway). The Devices: Install Guest Additions menu merely mounts a CD image VBOXADDITIONS_3.2.6_63112) without any feedback (expected feedback because the menu ends with an ellipsis). The CD, once opened, has an Open Autorun Prompt button...which fails to do anything. Manually running autorun.sh also fails. I had to manually invoke VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run from a terminal to get anywhere. Even then I was unable to go higher than 1024x768.
