I use Ubuntu 10.04 32 bits and I have one keyboard Logitech Comfort Wave 450 with some multimedia keys (PLAY/PAUSE, VOLUME UP/DOWN, MUTE,.This multimedia keys works well in Rhythmbox but in Qmmp and Audacious2 doesn't. I explain this: Start my Gnome session. I open Qmmp/Audacious with one playlist charged, I press PLAY/PAUSE in my keyboard, but Qmmp/Audacious doesn't play. Close Qmmp/Audacious. I open again Qmmp/Audacious and now, when I press PLAY/PAUSE, it works! It also works if I open Rhythmbox before to open Qmmp/Audacious.
I am trying to use projectM with amarok, using jack. i have jack up and running fine, amarok works, and projectM builds, but it doesnt run. i built the 2.0.1 both from source and from SBo, but neither of them run correctly. when i run projectM-jack, i get the following spit back at me:
I tried to finally set-up surround sound on my Ubuntu 10.04 machine and i was successful in doing so after a while of changing settings and tinkering. After doing so though, i was later in the day not able to get into the Pulseaudio Volume Control, therefore, everything is stuck where it is and i can't change anything. When i try to open Pulseaudio Volume Control i get the error message, Connection failed, Connection refused. My programs still play sound and i can control the sound of the programs through the programs, but i cant control the sound of the sorround sound now and my main sound bar only affects my stereo speakers, not the surround ones.
I believe this may have happened after the random disk check on restart, but i can't 100% confirm that and i'm not even sure if they are related. I still have sound, but i have no way to control the volume of my entire system at once. I did some looking around online and saw that others are having or had the same issue, and it was through different versions of Linux also. somehow reset everything so i can access PAVC and start over . I also tried steps listed in another thread here on the same topic, but they weren't working and it also seemed to be for older Ubuntu versions.
It is most certainly my fault but I am now without a sound volume control and it does not show up in the add to panel.What can I do here? Does your icon have code that that I can use or can I find the file somewhere and create a link? Alsa mixer works ok and nothing is muted and I have sound so as to play music. The Internet connection and the power connection icons also don't appear.
I'm trying to install the projectM visualizer and I'm running into some problems. Initially, I tried to install it by running "sudo apt-get install libvisual-projectm", which seemed to work... except there's no launcher for it in my Applications menu and "projectM-pulseaudio" returns "command not found". From there, I decided to try to build it myself, by following this guide (<- link). It went well until the "make" command, which returns the following error:
I just installed 11.4 via the net install cd. In the configuration step, the internet connection test fails. Why would this happen if I just installed opensuse using the internet? It looks to me as if opensuse can already figure out how to use my network card. I went ahead and skipped the test, but it still doesn't make any sense to me. Let's see if internet works once I'm logged in...
I wanted to avoid having to use my CDs, DVDs weren't an option, and I didn't have very large usb sticks. It seemed my only option for installing openSUSE onto my laptop was with some sort of network install/boot.
I ended up finding this really cool service, netboot.me. What you can do is download a very small image (<1MB) for a floppy, USB stick, or CD, and then boot off of it. Then you can either install pre-defined distros over the network (straight from the distro's servers), or you can make an account (by connecting your google account), and then make your own configuration. I managed to make a configuration for openSUSE 11.4, and I was able to completely install it, via only using one floppy disk and the internet!
My first step in the process was to download the floppy image. Since I was on a windows computer, I then downloaded rawwrite for windows, and I wrote the image straight to the floppy. After that, I restarted the computer and booted from the floppy. It loaded the image, then asked me to press a key or wait for 3 seconds. In order to boot from my configuration, this was the point where I had to press a key, and then choose the option of loading the custom configuration. The configuration I made has an ID of 434001 (which anyone is free to use). Unfortunately, according to their community, the gPXE "network stack" isn't very optimizied, so the initial two downloads took awhile (my speed was locked at 65 kB/s.)
It then began booting in the installation environment, which took about 15 minutes, although download speeds were now back at normal, faster speeds. I configured my installation, and let the package downloading begin!
Just thought I might save someone some time if they are trying to use Mythbuntu with a Samsung LED TV. If you run into the issue where the desktop is larger than the screen even with everything set to 1920x1080i and you tried a customized EDID file to no avail. Go into the menu on the TV and select Source List, Edit Name, then chose the HDMI and change the name to be either PC, DVI or DVI-PC. Either of these three setting should correct the over sized display issue.
Now if you happen to want audio over HDMI and are using the HDMI Computer connector that Samsung so nicely provides. Make sure you don't choose either of the DVI options above as these mute the audio coming over the HDMI connector and instead enable the pin audio jack next to the HDMI connector.
I have an 27" iMac which I wish to use as display for my Ubuntu machine using it's mini Displayport as perTo that end I bought a new Intel DH67GD motherboard and 2600k CPU and a Displayport->Mini Displayport cable.However it seems that X doesn't detect the displayport connection correctly. When I boot the Ubuntu machine the iMac correctly switches to that input and Intel motherboard screen appears on the display followed by the grub interface.However it seems that when X should start it doesn't recognise the Displayport connection. The iMac goes back to displaying it's own screen and the X logs don't seem to recognise the connection

I've trolled the forums for about 30 mins or so already looking this up, but can't seem to find any solutions. Most threads seem to end with either a "report to launchpad" or they just end without resolution. So in case I've missed a solved thread:
Plugging my Kodak C503 in gives inability to mount due to lock issues, the infamous -60 lockout. However, I get TWO icons in metacity, neither are mounted/will mount. Turning the cam off removes both, and I can't get down to only one. Not sure if this is because it's reading the camera's internal memory + my SD card.
So, I pulled the SD card out, and jacked it into my card reader in my lappy. no dice. In fact, none of my SD cards work; leading me to believe I need to find drivers for it.
Notes: (1)It's a Pavillion ZD7000 (2)nothing pops up in fdisk (3)I really don't want to load up windows
I've installed Lucid Lynx in both kubuntu and xubuntu variants, and experienced the same problem, (Note I'm also still running 9,04,on the same computer, trouble free). With 10.04, the problem is that sound playback software works initially, but drops the connection with the sound driver randomly, at times varying from a few seconds to a couple of minutes. It seems to happen regardless of whether Alsa or PulseAudio is set as default. This happens with Movie Player, VLC, Audacity, and with Flash in Firefox - they all appear to start normally, with sound, but soon fail. (Again, I don't have this problem with earlier releases, using the same computer) I know little about sound configuration.
I have a Zotac MAG HD N01 desktop computer hooked up to my 40" LCD Samsung TV in the living room. On this machine, I have Ubuntu 9.10 minimal installed, and the system is configured using the XCI script (a customization script to configure the system as an HTPC with XBMC).
Now, since the original install, I've tweak it a little, and one of the things I have it doing is its booting into a minimal desktop using the NODM login manager and it goes into OpenBox. Everything works fine and dandy, however, when I leave it for a while, it looses its connection and says "Searching for Signal" on my TV. I can remedy the situation by just hitting a key on the keyboard (Ctrl for example).
This also happens if i'm watching, say a flash video in a web browser for a while (like a hockey game), and all of a sudden, the screen cuts out.I've checked in the openbox configuration, and screensaver is turned off, but I can't seem to find where to configure any sort of power management. Is there a way to turn off the, what I can only assume, is a power management feature?
I have Ubuntu installed, using transmission client to download a torrent.The torrent is coming down at ~300kbps, but my internet connection speedtests @ 50mbps...how do I configure connection to utilize connection?
On my Acer laptop, I have Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS and a static version of the Skype Beta 2.1, specifically version 126.96.36.199. I recently made the upgrade to it from an earlier version because I needed to have the screensharing feature to work. Previously Screensharing from others was showing up in a tiny window I couldn't resize. But the Skype Beta 2.1 works fine regarding screensharing.
But the problem I'm having now is that the sound intermittently goes away, but only for Skype. It seems to go away if I walk away from my laptop for a long time. When this occurs, I cannot hear or record sound through Skype, but it works fine through other applications. If I shut Skype back down once it is in this failed state, and come back in, then it remains in this failed state. The only resolution is a reboot, and then it's fine again.
The only thing I can think might be the issue is the Gnome Power Manager, perhaps? I mean, my fan on my laptop spins down if I walk away for a long time, so I know some kind of laptop power management is engaging.
I tried following this guide:
And it suggested removing PulseAudio and using esound instead. Well, I tried that and rebooted, and my desktop wouldn't boot properly. So, I did CTRL+ALT+F2, logged in, and then did "sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop". All was well again, but unfortunately it brought back PulseAudio again.
I recently purchased a new motherboard and processor to replace an existing system. I transferred the video card. OS remains the same, Ubuntu 10.10 x64. Video worked fine in the first system (eVGA motherboard, Intel E6600 CPU, 4GB RAM), but the old motherboard had a SATA controller issue. New system: Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5, AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb, 8GB RAM
1. Fresh OS install, everything starts up as expected, login, etc. 2. I use the Additional Drivers link from the menu and select the recommended nVidia driver and enable it. 3. After reboot, the following things happen: 3a. BIOS 3b. Ubuntu startup scripts 3c. Ubuntu logo with spinning dots 3d. Monitor goes black 3e. Monitor notifies it has lost sync
I believe 3d is where I would normally get the login dialog. I can use failsafe mode, but everything I've tried to fix the graphics display hasn't worked. I've even tried to load the latest nVidia driver, nvidia-config, nvidia-settings, etc. There are some options I've tried where the nvidia-x command returns "can't find device". I've tried to modify the xorg.conf file, to no success.
Any ideas what I can do to resolve the error? I'm not that strong on the xorg.conf file, but all I've read is that it's not too necessary anymore. Though, it was modified in my old system to get Twinview working. I've looked through a bunch of log files, but I may not have been looking in the correct log file.
I would like to use my S-video connection on my ATI Mobility Radeon x1400 Laptop but I don't know how to do it. Could someone help please? I have never tried to use it before so I cannot tell whether it worked with previous versions. I am using Natty.
Here is what I get with the command xrand. code...
I'm working on getting a Debian box up and running for training labs for Cisco, and would like VNC access to this Debian box. My main laptop is a MacBook Pro, and I have a Windows 10 desktop.What the problem is: Using the MBP's built-in VNC viewer, I receive a "Connection failed to "Server" Make sure Screen Sharing or Remote Management is enabled on the remote computer. using Chicken (of the VNC), I receive a "The server refused the connection".I'm using tightVNC as a server on the debian box. This is a fresh install of Debian.URL...
I recently installed 10.04 LTS. I am now having problems with video playback. When I watch an .avi file in media player, it will play for a few minutes and then come up with an error: pa_stream_writable_size() failed: Connection terminated
When I play them in vlc and kaffine they will play briefly then the sound will cut out. KMPlayer just stops without an error message.
I have changed my web server from FTP to SFTP for security reasons. I am used to Nautilus randomly crashing, but usually I got to connect fine via FTP. Now I could connect exactly once with SFTP, but ever since I only get the useful message:Oops! Something went wrong. Unhandled error message: SSH program unexpectedly exited
Can I install Ubuntu Studio 9.10, Ubuntu 9.10 or Kubuntu 9.10 Live CD/DVD on a computer without internet connection? becouse I build computer for ubuntu professional photography only Data like external HD
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 alongwith Linux Mint & Windows XP. A friend of mine who has the same computer configuration & same hardware is planning to install Ubuntu 10.04. But he'll not be having internet connection at that place. So I was thinking of helping him by giving a CD which will be having all the required software on that which I have installed in my ubuntu 10.04. So that when he installs Ubuntu he just need to put the CD. So is there someway thru which we can put our installed programs on the CD so that we can use them again when we don't have internet connection? Like APT on CD...
i have both pulseaudio and gstreamer installed, my "multimedia audio controller" claims to be a ESS Technology ES1988 Allegro-1 in the system information window and in the report i generated it says my Audio Adapter is "MPU-401 UART - MPU-401 UART" PulseAudio tells me Connection failed: Connection refused and the volume control that came with the system says No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found. I am not understanding, here. do I need some driver that i don't have? i installed all the gstreamer plugins that seemed to pertain to volume that i could find. If i am not very much mistaken, I am using Debian Lenny.
