Ubuntu Installation :: Certain Programs Not Loading Up?

Dec 22, 2010

Just recently, I've run into a problem with VLC.Whenever I clicked on it, it never loaded up. Sometimes a tab of it would appear for a split second, but it would immediately vanish. I assumed it was something wrong with the program itself so I went to the Synaptic Package Manager to uninstall and re-install it, unfortunately, it seems to have the same problem! So I figured maybe I should just update Ubuntu and then discovered my update manager won't update anything, it's broken too.

Debian :: Grub Load Error "Grub Loading Stage1.5. Grub Loading, Please Wait... Error 15"

May 23, 2010

When I try and boot my Debian computer I get the messages: Grub Loading stage1.5. Grub loading, please wait... Error 15 Is there any way of recovering from this - or is it simply a fresh install? I was attempting an upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and despite a few hurdles it looked like it was all happening. Got the new kernel loading, and the new grub. It looked as though grub2 was working so I ran the grub-remove-legacy-support command (something like that) and now my computer won't boot grub or Linux.

I'm assuming the MBR on my harddrive is lost, however I don't know what state the partition is in. I'm guessing that maybe this has been lost as well. I tried a few tools from the Ultimate Boot CD but nothing here was able to re-install my grub or boot from any partition or even mount my file-system. I'm fearing the worst but would like it confirmed before I blow it all away with a new install.

Ubuntu :: Run Certain Programs Right In RAM?

Dec 22, 2010

Is there a way to specifically run certain programs right in ram when they load up? On average I usually have 2Gig ram free (out of 4gig total). For example, hulu desktop, usage hog, I thought that forcing it to load into ram whenever hulu desktop is started may improve performance of the app. So, is there a program in ubuntu that can specifically control what programs can load directly load into ram when started?

Ubuntu :: X Isn't Loading Correctly

Jan 20, 2010

For 6 months I have used this computer as a ediacenter/seedbox on a decent TV. It crapped out and we got a new one. Hooked it up, had super messed up resolution. Ran some command (really don't remember) that ran you through the setup configuration asking for keyboard layout etc.

Didn't work. Deleted xorg.cong, didn't work. Blank xorg.conf, didn't work. What happens is it shows the Ubuntu name and loading bar, loads, then at 100% it shows 2 of them in purple around the screen. Obviously X isn't loading correctly.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Web Pages Not Loading?

Apr 18, 2010

after wrestling with several problems over the past few days of switching over to a portable version of Linux 9.10 (I'm running a Live USB created using Lili USB), and deciding between the UNR or the Desktop i386 releases (I eventually went with UNR because i386 will not load on my netbook and ends up corrupting itself), I now find myself with the interesting problem that Firefox will no longer load webpages.I'm using a wireless connection, and it worked about 4 hours ago, but doesn't any longer. It registers that it is connected (The network icon displays the connected information), but the webpages themselves will not load (And I don't know if any other web based application functions- I only bothered to check firefox).

And I know the connection itself is not to blame because I'm using it right now to post this message (Off of Windows 7).Any help that can be given would be appreciated. Except for these problems that come up I'm loving Ubuntu, and intend to use it inbetween classes and such.EDIT:No internet applications work, and the router does assign me an IP address while in Ubuntu. Also, the speed of the "Server not found" message indicates that it's not even trying to connect.

Ubuntu :: Logon GUI Not Loading?

Dec 25, 2010

I recently decided to get back into Ubuntu and installed 10.10 on my Acer Aspire 7741Z. The live USB worked great but the installed OS won't load the GUI. The loading screen does not show but instead there is a ton of text. The logon is the 'standard' logon (Ubuntu 10.10 -computer name- tty1). I can logon using the account information that the graphical installation asked for. After awhile, the screen goes blank. Pressing the power button, the text comes back and Ubuntu the message "ppdev: user-space parallel port driver" has appeared. Using "startx" causes the screen to go blank, and the screen comes back when the power button is pressed before shutting down.

Ubuntu :: Vidalia GUI Not Loading

Aug 16, 2011

I recently installed ubuntu 11.04(64-bit) and have been using it for a little less than a week now(absolutely love it). I've been trying to install all the basic programs I need, and up until now, with no problem.

I've had trouble getting vidalia to work properly. Whenever I start vidalia, both the tor and vidalia processes show up. The GUI for vidalia does not. A temporary solution I found was to login as root and run it like that, but I take it that isn't the greatest idea.

I've reinstalled multiple times, both from source, building deb packages, and the tor repository.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Is Not Loading

May 16, 2011

After I click my firebox browser button on my unity launcher (or in applications) it does nothing. If I click it from my launcher it blinks 6 or 7 times then, does nothing.I have had this problem before, but a simple log-off log-on fixed it. I have even tried to restart and nothing changed. Is there something else I should try? Sudo killall firefox, says no processes, but I dont think this would be necessary after a restart even. What else can I do? Should I uninstall, then re-install, or is this unnecessary?

Ubuntu :: Can't Install Programs With 10.04?

May 24, 2010

I'm brand-spanking new to Ubuntu and so far am greatly enjoying this magnificent OS. Though, after attempting to install Wine, I now this error when trying to install any program: 'E:Type 'main' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-wine-ppa-lucid.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.'

Here is the source list where I'm assuming the error is coming from:

# deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 10.04 LTS _Lucid Lynx_ - Release i386 (20100429)]/ lucid main restricted
# See http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to
# newer versions of the distribution.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Cannot Get Programs To Install

Jun 1, 2010

I started using Ubuntu a few days ago due to a classmates recommendation, and I simply cannot get this program I need for class to install. Or if it does, I don't know how to make it work.

I've got to install VMWare Server 2.0 for my class so we can make virtual computers and what not. But, no matter what I do I can't get it to install. Whenever I try to install it like I was told on various websites (here's one for examples sake [URL], I do this: sudo ./vmware-install.pl and get this: Can't install perl script "./vmware-install.pl" : No such file or directory

I've tried putting in stuff like home/computername/Desktop/vmware-install.pl, but I still get the same problem. I've racked my brain and my browser trying to figure this out, but I've had no luck.
