Ubuntu Installation :: Booting Directly From An Iso?

Mar 9, 2010

I've used Ubuntu for a couple of years now, and it is by far my favorite operating system. Although, I am now reluctantly switching to Windows 7, due to lack of support for the Apple Airport Extreme.

My CD drives are incapable of recognizing the DVD that I burned of Windows 7.

My only other option now seems to be to boot directly from the Windows 7 iso that I have.

I am using Ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu :: Booting Directly Into Terminal?

Jul 9, 2010

i'm running 9.10. For no reaso whatsoever that I can fathom, ubuntu now boots directly to a terminal. I use startx to get to the desktop, but if i do that, after a short while, the screen will go black and then ubuntu will take me to the GUI log-in screen. I noticed that I'f I was using firefox I would have to go into system monitor to kill the process before I could restart the browser. I also noticed while doing this that most processes seem to be running twice.

Ubuntu :: Is Possible Booting Directly Into Failsafe Mode

Nov 26, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a machine with a dodgey graphics card. This machine will break on normal graphics mode but run fine in failsafe graphics mode. I need this machine to be able to be controlled remotely and this is where the problem comes in.

If this machine is being controlled remotely, it may need to be rebooted remotely. Rebooting it into failsafe mode at the moment consists of two prompts: one to put it into failsafe, and the other to "keep it for one session". Does anyone know how to reconfigure Grub or whatever else so it will automatically go into Failsafe Graphics mode without any user interaction? (BTW, where it asked me to "keep for one session" or "reconfigure now", I clicked reconfigure and it didn't do anything. So I need to do it manually)

Ubuntu Installation :: Customization Of 10.04 Livecd - Going Directly To Desktop

May 20, 2010

The new 10.04 livecd diverts to a dialog asking if you want to go to livecd or install, which makes sense (shifting the choice away from grub, etc). However, I want to go directly to desktop: does anyone know exactly where in the boot process this diversion happens? I have a suspicion that it happens before the autologin, or somewhere thereabouts, but I haven't found anything after poking around initrd.lz. where to find the script that invokes the dialog?

Feb 6, 2016

When I google screenshots of Linux I often see that people have a clock directly on their desktop. How is this done?

I'm running Xfce on a Wheezy vm, but without xfce4-panel, so having a clock/date right on the wallpaper/desktop would be great..I don't want a clock in a window.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: When Booting Directly To XBMC Get "Failed To Initialize Audio Device"

Jun 10, 2011

have an OpenSuSE 11.4 (Linux with XBMC (10.1) installed.During installation of SuSE, I've created a user called "xbmc" and enabled autologin for this user. After XBMC have been installed I added the following to /home/xbmc/.xinitrc - "exec /usr/bin/ck-launch-session /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session /usr/bin/xbmc --standalone -fs"... so far so good - everything is perfectly fine..... or at least almost - when trying to play some musik I get the message "Failed to initialize audio device, Check your Audio Settings"... but if I close XBMC, log in to Gnome as root, open a terminal an su to user "xbmc" and start xbmc from commandline it works if I choose "Internal Analog Audio" in System -> System -> Audio Output. Now the spooky/funny parts appears... I check the options in Audio Output I see the following:

With Autologin:

HDA Intel Defaults


When returning to auto-login - it stops working again... By the way - to be sure that it wasn't a rights-problem, I ended up changing the UID for the "xbmc"-user to "0" to ensure root-privilegies

OpenSUSE :: Launch Application In Desktop N When Booting

May 24, 2010

This has probably been asked about before.... I would like to start apps in desktop 2, 3 and 4. To start apps during boot, I use two different methods: The .xinitrc file in /home/dan works fine under: "Add your own lines here..." Startup Applications in Gnome | System works well as well. Here, I can enter nautilus /dir and nautilus starts up just fine in that directory. But as I mentioned, I have yet to find a way to direct the program to run in a different desktop other than #1.
