Ubuntu :: Things Disappeared / What To Do?

Jun 14, 2010

I updated through the update manager the other day and after I shut my computer down and turned it back on the next day, all my icons on my desktop disappeared and I can't access my files or my applications. It gives me this error when trying to access my files in my desktop.

Could not open location 'file:///home/anubis/Desktop'
No application is registered as handling this file.

I posted a new thread about this the other day and somehow the thread disappeared too. what do I need to do?

Programming :: Name Of Formula N Things Out Of Collection Of M Things

Jul 22, 2011

I'm working through some problems in a beginners programming book. The author mentions a formula for calculating the number of ways of picking out n things from a collection of m of them:

/ m m!
| | = -----------
n / n! (m-n)!
But he does not give a name for the formula. Does anyone happen to know what it is called? I need to do some related research.

Ubuntu :: Getting Things To Run At Startup?

Jun 5, 2011

So I'm trying to get mediatomb to run at startup automatically. I went into System Settings -> Startup Applications and added a new one with the command 'sudo mediatomb.' Unsurprisingly it did not work. What am I doing wrong?

Also, what do I use in ubuntu to check for updates to all of my installed applications?

Ubuntu :: Things Look Horrible / Fix It?

Jul 8, 2011

So I've just recently started using awesome, but I was wondering why things look like this and how I can fix it

Just wondering why it's so 'un-decorated' I guess, I assume I'm just not running something I should be at startup, it happens on all programs and windows. http://i51.tinypic.com/afac5c.png

It's looks like windows 98

Here's another screenshot of it http://i54.tinypic.com/349ary9.png

Just all the borders, menus and stuff look horrible.

Ubuntu One :: Can I Get A Refund / Speed Things Up?

May 10, 2010

When I (try) to upload files to Ubuntu One; generally, the upload doesn't happen. What does happen is [on] the bottom panel says: "Sending request to files.one.ubuntu.com . . ." It may sit there like that for hours without an upload happening. Once, I left my computer on and left for a couple of days; when I got back it had uploaded. Is this the norm? Is there something wrong on my end (other than PBKAC)? What can I do to speed things up? Or can they be speeded up? Is the description of Ubuntu One one thing and the reality something else?

What to do?

Ubuntu :: Customize Things Running 10.04?

May 12, 2010

I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 and I wanted to customise it a little (splash screen, login screen, window theme) - problem is, all of the tuts on the net have been written for 9.xx or lower and none of them seem to work with the version that I am running (I can't remember why right now because I looked this up a few days ago but there was a tab missing in 10.04 that was there in 9.xx and below). how to customise these things running Ubuntu 10.04?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 64bit Does Funky Things?

Feb 27, 2011

this is totally weird and i have no idea what's happening. i have a 64bit ubuntu 10.10 (just like the title says). i've been having random (really out of the blue) slow ubuntu response. so slow, the mouse pointer works stops works kinda thing. i can't open any program and clicking the power button doesn't work. i have to hard restart it (holding down the power for a couple of sec). this is really making me mad since i'm afraid for my hardware life and to be honest - not very impressed with ubuntu.

i have no idea why this happens and i really need help on this subject, otherwise i'd just have to look for another OS (and i would like not to) also - the computer is new so i don't think it's a hardware problem, but if there are tests i can do to check it i wouldn't mind

Ubuntu :: Need To Remove Some Things From System

Mar 31, 2011

I've been running Linux for about 3 years now. I still am having difficulties understanding some of the basic unix and linux software and their dependencies.

What I am wanting to do, simply for my own amusement, is to strip the OS down so that I am only running software that I need. Then I want to build it back up with X and some sort of desktop.

Right now I have a stock Ubuntu 10.04 installation from the alternative DVD. Right now I sit at 643MB and 14MB of ram. Of course I would want it to be lower.

Here are the programs currently on the chopping block. I need to now if I honestly need them or not. I state next to the software whether or not I know what it is. code...

So obviously I have not a clue about many things still, and if you've caught an error in my descriptions then I have less of a clue than I thought.

I just need to know what the system needs to run. I like the basic commands like less, grep, free, df, du, adduser, usermod, apt-get, dpkg, cp, mv, rm, mkdir, ect. What I don't need are things like w3m telnet(Unless someone knows something I don't), memtest+, and I don't ever use cron, but I also don't know if it does something behind the scenes that is vitally important. I remember trying to get rid of memtest one time and it wouldn't boot after that. Any idea why?

Apr 28, 2011

For some odd reason when I logged into Ubuntu Lucid Lynx today, Caro dock is all messed up and the close, minimize, etc buttons are on the left on all of the windows.Yesterday all was fine. The buttons were on the right side and cairo dock was fine.Now, it is all messed up. I even brought the compiz icon up and clicked reload WM and that did not even fix it.

General :: Can't Find Things In Ubuntu

Jan 8, 2011

I have been trying to go through Beginning Ubuntu Linux but there are inconsistencies with what the books says and what it looks like on my computer. For example, The book speaks of a Device Manager that should be located under System > Administration > Device Manager. It does not appear for me under System > Administration.

The book I have was published in 2006 and I am using Ubuntu 10.10.

Ubuntu :: Accidentily Overwrote Windows And Other Things?

Feb 19, 2010

I just did something that is moderately serious in my book.while trying to put a iso/img to a USB drive using "dd" command (actual command: "dd if/=/home/<username>/Desktop/<image file name> of/=/dev/sda1"), I accidentally wrote to /dev/sda1 (which is my windowspartition on this dual booted computer). When i try to boot into windows, it gives a error that it cannot find the parition. the iso was about 400meg, it was a install iso for another form of linux (arch linux).Is there anyway that I can get my windows partition to work again, or am i just going to have to say goodbye to all my music, pictures, etc. And I think some of my teachers require me to use windows based software... So I would like to eventually get back into windows though.I am running Ubuntu 9.10, I am on a laptop (HP HDX 16t)I am going to get ubuntu back onto my netbook (i destroyed that earlier tonight by deleting a partition that had the bootloader on it... i am just wiping that though)

Ubuntu :: Missing Things In Area Near Clock

Oct 10, 2010

i think installed Ubuntu 10 2 weeks ago and it was working as far as this problem is concerned and then recently stopped showing Skype and the internet connection thing that is two arrows when connected. Both items are supposed to be next to the sound icon. You can see the blank area in the attached pic. I also do not get the top bar and bottom bar of the desktop about every 2 boots.And why is it when i save to the desktop i have to go to home>desktop instead of straight looking at the desktop. Sorry this is all happening at once and maybe it is all related?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Just Stopped Waking From Suspend And Other Things

Dec 15, 2010

I'm using ubuntu 10.10 on an hp pavilion dv9620.

For some reason, all of the sudden;

-my computer quit waking from suspend
-when my computer reboots (because I had to hold in power switch until it restarted) some of the items on my screen looks wierd for a few minutes, like there are tracers on some items (dock, top of screen, etc)
-when i try to wake my computer from suspend, the screen is a funny gray color with wierd blobby shapes that move around a little bit. And of course, doesn't load GUI or anything like that, just gray screen.

Ubuntu :: Change The Things With Command Line?

Mar 10, 2011

I understand the basics, where certain files are located, how to change basic things, and very basic stuff with the command line (I use it to organize my files mainly). If at all possible could you supply me with a guide - be a website or a book to:

1) Just the general layout of the system (whats in the depth of the /etc folder and what naught)

2) How to more efficiently use the command line. As in where I am not giving in and using the GUI all the time.

3) What programming language(s) should I learn. I am thinking C and Python to start.

Ubuntu Networking :: RPC Works For Some Things And Fails On Others

Apr 13, 2011

I'm trying to use a remote procedure call. When I call my server, my server should activate gammu and send an sms with it. I've used the code in the following tutorial: [URL]. The command for the uptime, and the command for the greeting work perfectly. But when I write my own method on my server, it fails ..

function uptime_func($method_name, $params, $app_data) { return `uptime`; } function greeting_func($method_name, $params, $app_data) { $name = $params[0]; return "Hello, $name. How are you today?"; }
function gammu_func($method_name, $params, $app_data) {
$text = $params[0];
$number = $params[1];
$result = "echo '$text' | gammu sendsms TEXT $number";
return $result; }
On my Client (the one that calls the server) I see the output of $result. So my gammu_func is definitely working... He just doesn't execute

I know that syntax is right cause I tried it in a different php file. I think it has something to do with the user rights. I don't think I have the privileges to run that command ...

Ubuntu :: System Tray Things Are Disapearing / Fix For This?

May 25, 2011

I've done some searching through google and can't seem to find a fix for this.

I installed skype on my computer and couldn't figure out where the tray icon went after i closed the main window so I started playing around with all my taskbars and stuff. Being new to ubuntu and all (I'm using version 11.04 with the gnome theme) i accidentally deleted the Skype icon, my windows list on the bottom and everything up top. I successfully restored my windows list and have system monitor so i can easily kill skype if i accidentally restore it (i haven't been able to figure out how to restore the icon up there) and got rid of all my stuff in the top right corner. Upon reboot everything returned except for my shutdown/restart/log off list which i loved (it fit in esthetically and had all the options).
