Ubuntu :: Booting Usb Directly To Desktop?

Is there a way to modify my ubuntu 10.04 bootable usb drive so that it will boot directly to a desktop without first stopping at the screen offering to install to the hard drive?

Ubuntu :: Booting W7 Directly From Grub?
I installed Ubuntu on w7 using Wubi and I set in w7 that it on startup automatically boots Grub without asking. Now when I am in Grub and when I select Windows 7 (loader) it goes black and returns to Grub so I cant boot w7 at all.

Ubuntu :: Booting Directly Into Terminal?
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 Installation :: Booting Directly From An Iso?
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 :: Is Possible Booting Directly Into Failsafe Mode
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
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?

OpenSUSE :: Directly Enable 11.3 X64 KDE Desktop Effects
I've a question about KDE desktop effects. How do I directly enable KDE desktop effects in KDE? Now I have to enable Gnome desktop effects, then KDE desktop effects will be enabled. When I select "enable desktop effects" and press "OK" in KDE, it will tell me "... X configuration ..." something. What the hell is that? I never met this problem in Gnome. Is it a KDE's bug?

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

Ubuntu :: Get The Delay From Booting Into Gnome To Actually Getting Up Desktop?
get the delay from booting into gnome to actually getting up your desktop? Mine seems to boot, come to a purple background with a pointer, then after a while of waiting the panels and my actual background loads. Just wandering if anyone else gets the same. Edit > Happens regardless of what drivers i use for graphics so it's not an issue of open/closed drivers.
