Ubuntu :: Start Filesystems Automatically At Boot?

Mar 4, 2010

When I go to 'Places' on my panel, my windows drives are listed. I can click on one, it then asks me for password, then it puts a hard drive icon on my desktop. This is excellent.They are listed as '200 GB Filesystem' etc.My only problem, is how to make these icons stay after I shut down. I don't want to do this every time I boot up.

Ubuntu :: Get Kubuntu To Automatically Go Into Boot From Cd On Start Up?

Jul 16, 2011

My son dropped my laptop and broke the screen so I decided to use it as a project.

1 I managed to install kubuntu on it unfortunately it was the 64bit version not the 34bit one. The problem I'm having is that the external monitor only works after kubuntu boots up so I can not view the set-up boot options. What I want to do is put win 7 on it as I have a mate that needs a computer and he is pretty computer illiterate.

2:It will boot into G-parted and I have made a ntfs partition for the win 7 OS to go into. I have another duel boot desktop so followed what I did with that.The problem is that as I cannot see the initial start up screen and can get it to boot from the win7 boot disc that I have(this is a working cd I have used before) Is there a way I can get Kubuntu to automatically go into boot from cd on start up etc?

OpenSUSE Install :: NFS Works But Cannot Start At Boot Automatically?

Apr 10, 2010

I am using SUSE 11.2. And I am really baffled with a strange NFS problem.I have set up the fstab on the client and exports on the server correctly, because if I manually run # /etc/init.d/nfs startStarting NFS client services: sm-notify doneI can see and use the NFS partition perfectly, there is no problem at all.But nfs cannot successfully start at boot. In yast, I have enabled nfs in "System Services (Runlevel)" at runlevel 3 and 5. So it should run automatically, but I always get the following error message:

Server :: Heartbeat Dont Start Automatically On Boot-up

Mar 22, 2011

I have configured heartbeat+DRBD on a SLES10 SP3 cluster and that's working fine except when both nodes are down and I turn on only one node. When this happens, the heartbeat don't starts automatically (the service status says it's unused, so the services, IP address and partition don't start automatically too).
I can turn on the heartbeat manually (service heartbeat start) and get the services, ip address and partition initialized too, but I'd like to make it starts automatically because it's possible to have one node broken and the person that will turn on the other node can forget to manually starts the service.

-When the heartbeat is unused on the first node and I turn on the second node, the heartbeat on the first node starts automatically and everything is fine.
-The command "chkconfig heartbeat on" was executed.

I have checked Yast2's runlevel services option and dansguardian is enabled to 'Yes'. But when i check with 'service dansguardian status' it reports 'unused'.If i start dansguardian by hand, things work perfectly fine.I am in a desperate situation since there are 4 other computers which are dependent on this setup to work correctly

Ubuntu Installation :: Gnome-wm Doesn't Start At Boot Time Automatically After Upgrading To Lucid

Feb 23, 2011

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.

Fedora :: Check Filesystems At Boot Time?

Nov 9, 2010

What are others' views and experience regarding automatically checking filesystems (running fsck) at boot time?To be more clear, I have left the ext3 filesystems on this machine set to require checking after a fixed number of mounts by using tune2fs with the '-c' option. I've done this mainly because of the following (from the tune2fs man page):

Code:Youshould strongly consider the consequences of disabling mount-count-dependentchecking entirely. Bad disk drives, cables, memory, and kernel bugs could all corrupta filesystem without marking the filesystem dirty or in error.e using journalingon your filesystem, your filesystem will never be marked dirty, so it will not normallybe checked. A filesystem error detected by the kernel will still force an fsck on the nextreboot, but it may already be too late to prevent data loss at that pointBut what does anyone else do? Is there really much risk to disabling this automatic checking

Ubuntu Servers :: Grub To Automatically Boot - Wont Automatically Select One

Feb 28, 2011

I am having trouble getting grub to automatically boot into ubuntu server. When I turn on my server the grub menu shows up and shows me the choices. They all work fine except that grub wont automatically select one. This wouldn't be too much of a problem but this is a headless server and I can't boot into ubuntu without a keyboard. I tried looking through the grub 2 documentation but nothing seemed to work when I edited the conf file.

Ubuntu :: AWN Doesn't Automatically Start?

Apr 30, 2010

I upgraded to 10.04 and my AWN dock won't automatically start even though the 'box' is tic'd and it's showing in the Startup Applications. I did lose all of my configurations as well after upgrading and had to reinstall everything on the dock.

Also, there are little numbers on the launchers like for Trash and Email that tell me how many items are in there. The Trash was easy to remove the numbers by right clicking and choosing the Preferences option. There was a place to disable that but there isn't one for the Email and those little numbers look well.

Ubuntu :: Alternative To VNC Doesn't Start Automatically?

Feb 3, 2010

I'm using vnc to connect to my ubuntu box from my windows box however I don't like the way it works.1) It doesn't start automatically. I have to be logged into my username before I can connect to my box.2) It takes control of the screen on my ubuntu box which isn't what I really want to happen. I'm used to connecting via rdp in windows where I connect to the other computer and if you looked at the other screen you wouldn't even know I am logged on.This is handy if someone else is using the pc plus I just don't like everything that I am doing to appear on a computer screen that I can't see. I find it kind of freaky.

Ubuntu :: Mount Partition Automatically At Start?

Mar 28, 2010

recently i was trying to mount my partition automatically at start up ...so i gone through some tutorials on the net nd made some changes in /etc/fstab file (i made a back up before making any changes). when i was changing permissions of folder in which i tried to mount my all partitions i got my system screwed up.then it was showing following error at start up and GUI was not turning up. "could not update ICEauthority file " also my sudo was not working so first i restored original fstab file through recovery console then i googled out about above errors. I found some solution now my system is working but showing strange behaviour like:

> ubuntu is not detecting any of my hdd partition

> disk utility is not working (showing no error)

>fdisk -l shows nothing

> no new software is getting installed via ubuntu software center (shows no error when clicking on install but nothing turns up)

>i cannot restart or shutdown my system from GNOME it only logs off my session (although through terminal its working)

>no media player showing sound controls enabled

>gnome not showing ethernet or sound volume icon in upper panel (although net is working)

>users and groups from system->administration menu is not working (error:cannot load configuration)

i think most of the administrative tasks are not working.........i googled out but found nothing satisfactory..i dont want to reinstall it, coz i m not very experienced with linux n it took about a whole month to customize my ubuntu 9.10 on my college internet...

Ubuntu :: Make A Command Run Automatically On Start-up?

May 27, 2011

I have a lenovo thinkpad laptop, and it has both touch-pad (standard build in laptop mouse) and touch-point (in the middle of the keyboard) mouse options.

I almost invariably use the touch-point and the accompanied scroller and key-buttons.

HOWEVER, for the scroller to be recognized by ubuntu you must run two scripts as follows:

xinput set-int-prop "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" "Evdev Wheel Emulation" 8 1
xinput set-int-prop "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" "Evdev Wheel Emulation Button" 8 2

Restarting the computer resets these settings, and you must re-run them each time you start up ubuntu.

I am looking to write a script that will automatically run itself (which will execute the above commands), or to permanently change these settings so that it will not be necessary to run them at each start-up.

Thanks in advance, and if there is another thread on these forums that I should move to (or even just another thread that would be a more likely place to get a response). This seemed like the best forum (one which can certainly hold this post without violating any rules), but I may have missed something.

Ubuntu :: KDE/Plasma Does Not Start Automatically Anymore

Jun 13, 2011

After upgrading my husband's laptop to 11.04, KDE does not start automatically anymore. kdm (the log-in screen) appears. I select "KDE Plasma Desktop". But instead a kind of terminal appears in the top left corner. This console does not have window decoration. When I type startkde into it, KDE starts completely normally.

The same happens with a newly created user, so a misconfiguration in .kde cannot be the cause.

/usr/share/xsessions/kde-plasma.desktop is correct:

Code:

The metapackage kubuntu-desktop is installed.

I have tried reconfiguring and reinstalling various packages that I or others thought might be responsible:

Code:

GNOME was installed on the same computer, too, and caused some problems after the upgrade (instead of KDE being the default session, it was Unity, but no menus or control bars loaded). After trying all the things mentioned above, I uninstalled all GNOME/Unity-related packages to rule out they were causing the problem (according to that list: [url]). It did not help, even though for two packages messages appeared that sounded like they might make a difference:

Code:

I compared with

Code:

With my other two computers that work fine after the upgrade to 11.04, they also use startkde and kwin.
