Ubuntu :: Unable To Get TV-Fox Work / Resolve This?
Mar 9, 2010
I just installed the TV-Fox add-on for Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11200), but it doesn't seem to work. When I choose a Channel all it does is load for ages, saying 'waiting for video'. Are there any additional packages that need to be installed for this to work, or is it just not working in general?
I got this problem that i can't enable 5.1 and i can't get microphone to work i know the onbord has 5.1 and working mic input from windows but i wanner use ubuntu more and more and i kinda need those things the sounds is working atm but only 2 front speakers the mic aint wokring at all I'm useing ubuntu 10.04 everything is updated code...
I've been trying to get my built-in webcam to work for the past few hours and am completely stuck... Apparently I need a driver called uvcvideo, but I cant find it anywhere (its repos have been removed). I have installed Cheese and Camorama, neither of which work. Camorama throws this error when launched - "Could not connect to video device /dev/video0). Please check connection. Cheese launches, turns camera light on, shows a black screen for ~1 sec then closes.
The only way I can get the webcam to work is with a program called "guvcview" (light turns on and I can see preview), that's why I'm thinking I need the uvcvideo driver.
I've found various posts on how to install the uvcvideo driver, but I get an error on all its reposotory links - "reposotory not found". I also can't figure out how to install the EasyCam program, yet another repository error.
Does anyone know how to get built-in webcams working? I suspect it is due to my lack of driver, but I could be wrong. Lsusb detects the webcam as a Chicony Electronics Co. LTD Gateway USB 2.0 Webcam, so the kernel detects it, just no apps.
I remember that in the past, I succeed to sniff network traffic with Wireshark but when I tried lately, it didn't work. - Enabled monitor and promisc mode using the command line and launched Wireshark with option 'promisc mode' on: didn't work. - Directly launched Wireshark with option 'promisc mode' on: didn't work. - Did the both previous things with option 'promisc mode' off: didn't work.
I'm having some pulseaudio weirdness. Up until this evening, my built-in microphone worked fine with skype, google voice, etc.Tonight while talking on google voice, I made the mistake of trying to adjust the microphone volume at the same time.Suddenly the volume cut down to a tiny, tinny little sound.Now I can't get the microphone to work normally again. Some weird facts:
1) the built-in microphone still works fine in audacity and gnome-sound-recorder 2) the built-in microphone still works in Windows 3) the built-in microphone shows sound input in the pulseaudio applet->Volume Meter [code]....
For the past week, I haven't been able to install anything using GDebi. Every time I do, it says that only one software managment tool may be open at once. It always says this, despite it being the only one open. What's wrong?
My problem is setting the hostname. I cloned the machine, then normally on the clone, I would change the /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts file.
However, when I do this, upon restart, I get the message, "init hostname main process (some process number) terminated with status 1"Then, when the machine finally boots, the hostname is set to (none). Literally has braces like: user@(none):
I've tried: sudo hostname machine_name but it says can't resolve hostname (none).
I've Google'd around a lot but can't get it. It may have something to do with 10.04? I have been using 9.04, 9.10 with no problems.

When using the HyperWorks FEA software HyperView with Ubuntu Lucid the following error is displayed,ChoosePixelFormat Failed. Cannot find a suitable pixel format.Also in the terminal this error appears,Unable to resolve function glXQueryExtension is displayed.This issue can be fixed by doing the following for nvidia cards, sudo ln -s /usr/lib/nvidia-current/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
or for ATI cards,sudo ln -s /usr/lib/fglrx/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
Note you must install the Nvidia or ATI proprietary drivers for opengl graphics support to be able to use HyperWorks.
In Ubuntu 10.10 am trying to install Aptitude and have been through installing and un-installing but keep getting the same msg Failed to execute child process "su-to-root" (No such file or directory) how to resolve this issue.
I am unable to print from Wine applications (including Notepad) because Wine thinks I have no printers installed. I have a network printer and print-to-file both working fine in normal KDE applications. I did some looking around and found the following:http://www.witch.westfalen.de/Wine-H...intconfig.html This is very old, and probably very out of date. I also had trouble following the examples. In any case I don't have anything called winerc or wine.conf. I just have a .wine directory. Supposedly I should have registry keys for printers in Wine, so I looked where those are supposed to be. I have two keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetContro lPrintPrinters: (Default) and DefaultSpoolDirectory. Perhaps if I added the right key here I could get Wine to notice CUPS? I wouldn't begin to know what to put though. http://www.winehq.org/docs/wineusr-g...s-to-configure claims that Wine should "just work" with CUPS. So much for that. It also says that if it doesn't work with CUPS it falls back to look in /etc/printcap. I have one of those, but it doesn't contain anything except the default comment telling me not to edit the file. Maybe if there's a way to regenerate /etc/printcap to contain the printers that show up in KDE, Wine would notice. Again, I have no clue how to do that. I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 x64, and I'm using Wine 1.2, not Wine 1.0. All my packages are completely up to date.
The proprietary drivers that came with my ubuntu 9.04 installation are not doing their job. My cpu is managing my graphics (compiz-fusion, and a 3d obj running in the background) and I alway have a core of my phenom processor close to 100. I have an ATI 4870 gpu with 2gb internal ram on the card. Also, recordmydesktop, electric sheep, and any other simple graphics all lag. 3d games on the other hand have no problem. I decided I would try the driver I downloaded from AMD. I removed the proprietary driver, ran...
Code: sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-10-1-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/jaunty and I get
Code: Created directory fglrx-install.lPNHYh Verifying archive integrity... All good. Uncompressing ATI Proprietary Linux Driver-8.69 ..... /bin/sh: execstack: not found make: *** [binary-install/xorg-driver-fglrx] Error 127 dpkg-buildpackage: failure: debian/rules binary gave error exit status 2 Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.lPNHYh
How to make the proprietary driver work better I'm all for that to.
So I have forgotten my password, like a moron, and have been trying to reset/recover it. I have found the plethora of sites giving instructions on how to reset my password, such as psychocats.net So have gotten into the root shell and this is what I type. ls /home (gives me the name of my account) passwd (my account here) unknown user (account name here)
I have also tried doing the editing the boot kernel. I add this: rw init=/bin/bash Once I restart I get the root@(none) command prompt. Then I type passwd (username here) and get back ' unknown user
I'm able to connect to my company's VPN network using GNOME NetworkManager but when I try to login to the remote system using SSH it is not able to resolve the DNS name, It works fine if I use IP instead of the FQDN.
i searched the internet on how to resolve IP to hostname in my internal network. However, i could not find any solution to it. Any gurus around have any knowledge on this? i have tried whois, dig and nslookup however it doesnt give me anything.
I recently have a need to get my HP ScanJet 5590 working. Never used it in suse, only in the old windoze daze. Running opensuse 11.2, kde 4.3.4 quite nicely.
When I dusted the scanner off (USB) and plugged it in and fired it up, then went into Yast, scanner, it correctly recognized the scanner by model, but the driver line has Not configured: in front of the driver info. And, it will not do a test scan, nor do any apps see the scanner. As far as I can see all the dependencies are installed, I just need to configure the scanner. But I can't find any place in Yast to do that, nor do I have a clue what command line would work.
I got my server set up with 10.04, and with everything installed: DHCP, SSH, Samba, VBox, etc.
DHCP, SSH work fine, but I am having problems where I cannot ping the hostname of the machine.
It worked for a few minutes after I got everything installed and now it's not letting me connect via hostname. I can connect fine if I use the IP address. I cannot ping the machine by hostname unless I add it's IP address to the hosts file.
I'm running 10.10LTS at present, I upgraded via the Upgrade Manager last night, Firefox 3.4 and D-bus stuff if I remember correctly. The system then gave the "restart now or later" buttons and I hit the "now" one. My system, an AMD 3800+ dual core job in an MSI mobo then shut down and, er... died. hitting the momentory action power switch gives an ocasional short noise but I have no power/fans or anything. It's a 480 Watt PSU with green leds and stuff I don't really need but the price was good, so I'm not convinced that it's dead... yet.
Is it possible for an upgrade to stuff the power-up circuitry? Maybe power management?
My next step is to swap the PSU to eliminate this as the "faulty" item. It leaves the Mobo, screwed CMOS and possibly the switch cabling/connector but it's all a bit suspicious. I'm basicially a hardware guy so that's the path I'm following. Unless the upgrade's written to somewhere it shouldn't?
I haven't had time to investigate further as I was dragged away shouting and screaming to a prior engagement by "she who must be obeyed".
I'm not great with computers. I have no clue how to fix this kind of thing. I went into Alsamixer, and it says my card is an Intel 82801CA-ICH3. I have updated all of the files that needed updated, turned up the master volume and it still doesn't work. Somebody please explain this to me in words I can understand.
Every once in a while I get this error when I plug in my external hard drive. I'm a bit worried I might suffer some kind of data loss. I'm trying to get some more information about this. I have been using this hard drive with Windows 7 previously so it is most likely NTFS I think.
I am trying to run a file called MFSTOOL from mfstools.sourceforge.net
It its a program for backing up tivo images
when i drop into a shell account and go to the dir of the program then type mfstool I get -bash: mfstool: command not found
now if I run it by typing ./mfstool
it will give me a list of options and switches for the program, but if i try to use the options and switches with ./mfstools it will just give me the switches and options again IE Typed as ./mfstool backup -6 -o /tivofiles/images/sddvr40/3510/tivo.bak /dev/hdc/
I know the program works as I can boot with a live cd mount my /dev/hda1 and store files to the images dir, i think i am missing something in a config file to let this program run.
I have installed Fedora 10 on VmWare. I created another user besides root. I am able to login to that user using GNome login and i can switch to root using "su" command and perform the additional tasks.
Now, for one lab assignment, i need to login as root using GUI. But whenever i am trying to do, I am unable to do that. Is there some additional things that i have to do to login as root from GUI?
