Ubuntu :: Can't Find A Way To Get Back To Original Prompt?

Mar 15, 2010

I am using the latest UBUNTU 9.10. It was working great. I logged in as Tom, put in my password and could do what I needed to do. Now when I go to the CLI through the terminal I get "Tom@new-host-2:~$ " which has no privileges. I obviously messed up something. I can't find a way to get back to my original prompt when I access the terminal.

Ubuntu One :: Way To Get U1 Back To Original Unobtrusive Self?

Apr 16, 2011

ubuntu one takes like 30s to start all of the sudden (it used to be almost instantaneous on log in). This is an issue for two reasons: first is the fact that system performance is drastically compromised while ubuntuone-syncdaemon starts since it is accessing the disk as much as it absolutely can, which means that other programs also take forever to launch; second, when it finally does start, I am prompted to unlock the keyring, which interrupts whatever I am doing in a fairly annoying fashion and prevents the screen from locking properly if the computer is suspended.

While ubuntuone-syncdaemon is taking its merry time to launch, the status of the process is "uninterruptable," and an entire processing core is used at 100% with IOwait, as it is furiously accessing the hard drive.Is their any way I can get u1 back to original, unobtrusive self? Could this be indicative of a hard drive issue.

Ubuntu :: How To Get Original 10.04 Splash Screen Back

May 28, 2010

I wanted to change the resolution of the splash screen because it looked too big for the screen's area. I installed Start-up Manager, which I don't like any more because of this issue, and changed the resolution. The result was a garbled screen and so I reset to the original settings and re-booted. Now I have another garbled screen with 2 side-by-side very fuzzy/unreadable "Ubuntu" images.

Ubuntu :: Remove Netbook 10.04 And Back To Original

Sep 7, 2010

I had download ubuntu netbook 10.04 version and use it from booting by USB key. I found it quite useful from USB and eventually installed it on my Gateway netbook, that's where my nightmare started. At installation option gave me to ubuntu side by side with my Windows Vista on the netbook. It used part of hard drive space to create a separate partition for ubuntu. Intallation is OK but display is very bad particular moving the mouse around Firefox. Screen turned white back ground right with messy character font. It tried move around and have to restart ubuntu to get out.

I thought it might be something display drive not setup but found no option to make change from within Ubuntu. I had frustrated to search for fixing option and decide to "remove" ubuntu from the netbook. The worst, there is no option whatsoever on how to remove it. I search this forum and script to delete the partition from terminal. When it restart, the MBR or Grun loaded with errors incorrect file system. That mean the MBR not load and it is a netbook. It does not come with Vista CD for me to fix MBR nor resize the partition. I had to re-install ubuntu again back to square one to use it size by size with Windows.

Any one have a clean and details steps on how to remove ubuntu, resize partition and able to bring the netbook back to Windows only?

Ubuntu :: Revert 10.10 Font Back To Original?

Nov 30, 2010

I have upgraded to 10.10 and I want to go back to the font used in 10.04. What was the name of the font in Lucid? Moreover, how do I make Google Chrome adopt this change? It is currently rendering all the web-pages with the Ubuntu font and I want whatever 10.04 was using. If I change the font in the Appearance -> Fonts panel, Google Chrome does not update.

Ubuntu Installation :: Back To Original Packages After Upgrade/install?

Dec 14, 2010

I just did a fresh install from 8.04 to 10.04 with separate "/" and /home partitions. I really wanted a new 10.04 system to start from scratch and rebuild it again & differently. Instead I got a really messed up system. Is there any way to change it to a fresh new 10.04 install. That nothing has been added to yet?

This is very important because on 10.04 my video card won't handle all the mods that I had on 8.04 and my system freezes very soon after I log on.

OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Changed - How To Get Original Back

May 15, 2011

When I first installed openSUSE 11.4 the /boot directory looked like this:

I had installed VirtualBox through Yast and decoded to delete. After deleting the /boot directory looked like this, pointing now to the desktop kernel.

I went into YAST and deleted all kernel entries that contained desktop, trying to get back to the original configuration.

After doing this, the /boot directory now looks like this.

Is there any way to get back to the original kernel configuration without having to do a complete installation?

Ubuntu :: Format Cption And Take It All Back To The Original Settings, It Says That C: Is Too Small Or Missing?

Oct 6, 2010

Seems that i have totally ****ed up my sony vaio (vgn-fz21z). I've been doing some partitioning and formatting without really knowing what i was doing. Now it is a mess.The vaio comes with pre-installed windows vista, which is no longer installed. I want it to be.Ubuntu 10.4 is installed. In grub I can choose vista but that is only vaio recovery tool. Which is not working. When I try the format cption and take it all back to the original settings, it says that c: is too small or missing.

I also have some cd:s with windows 7 and xp on, but they can't be read. Now the vaio is not even accepting my ubuntu live-cd. I have nothing of importance on the computer, so there would be no problem re-formatting the whole thing. Can it be done? I would prefer is the vaio recovery tool could be left untouched, it has its own partition. I guess I'm asking: is there a way from inside ubuntu to make a total system re-installation, get rid of different partitions and reconstruct c:, so win can be installed again?

I was reading about GParted, but do not want to attempt anything until I have some expert advice.

Dec 4, 2010

I have a laptop with 2 x different versions of Ubuntu installed as follows:

Ubuntu 10.10 on a partition; and
Ubuntu ultimate edition gamers (based on ubuntu 10.10 I believe).

I've only recently installed the gamers edition as a dual boot to see what it looks like. Now I've had a play around with it I've realised that I don;t really like it.What's the quickest/easiest way of reverting back to my original ubuntu 10.10 as a single boot? I don't want to re-install 10.10 - I was hoping I could delete the gamers edition to get back to my original single boot 10.10.

I have a Sony Vaio vgn-sz440. Here is what the specs say about the video card.

Mar 3, 2011

I just installed the newest version of Ubuntu 10.10 with a dual boot with Windows 7. I like it, but I think I might need sound drivers. Flash content sounds seem to lag a lot, and it is kind of annoying. I am using an ASUS M2N68-AM SE2. I can't find the original CD. and even if I did have it, would it even work with Ubuntu? Where can I get a compatible version?

Ubuntu :: Accidentally Moved Files / User - Can't Find Any Original File

Dec 31, 2010

Initially, I was trying to get around a Nautilus log in error. Using this, I was able to log in, but I entered what seems to be a perfectly clean version of Ubuntu...with no access to my files. [URL].... Now, I can't seem to find any of my original files. Some of the commands I entered in the terminal included:


I'm afraid that I may have deleted the files, or have moved them to another user or someplace on the drive I can't see.

Ubuntu :: Couldn't Use Grub2 Console Prompt To Log Back - Can't Get Anything To Work Correctly

Feb 1, 2011

Is this a beta version or something? I installed this version because it came as a live cd coupled with emc2 for cnc machining. I cannot get anything to work correctly. I tried to install Mozilla thunderbird using the application manager and it is very slow. It takes forever for the menus to open. or emails and is virtually unusable. I tried to use the startup manager and it killed my grub bootloader so I needed to reinstall. I couldnt successfully use the grub2 console prompt to log back into linux even though I ollwed several tutorials for this. I tried to install the flash player plugin and it kept telling me still to install it before I could watch flash videos even though I had installed it 3 or 4 times. I just tried to install evolution mail and it cannot log into my gmail account. I tried to install swift dove which is a faster version of thunderbird and it says it is starting but then never does. I am reasonably sure I should hang in there as I have heard Ubuntu is very good as an os.

Ubuntu :: Find Drives To Mount From Command Prompt?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Find A Prompt For The Same Passphrase For The IDE Drive?

Aug 12, 2011

I recently was given a system with an ASUS A8V motherboard, AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 1.8GHz CPU and one 60 GB SATA disk to which I added a 120GB IDE disk. As the disks are on different (built-in) controllers and are different speeds, I set up /boot, root and swap on the SATA disk, and then one big /home partition on the IDE drive, using the custom partitioning. If I install Fedora 15 32 bit (from DVD) with encryption enabled, I get prompted for the encryption passphrase during bootup as I would expect. If I install Fedora 15 64 bit (from DVD), I get that same prompt and the boot hangs. I can then bring up a serial console where I'll find a prompt for the same passphrase for the IDE drive. I can enter it and the boot will proceed.

I am now running F15 64 without encryption; I would like to get encryption working again but without having to enter the passphrase twice. Plus I figure that this *should* work the same under both the 64 and 32 bit versions. I have had to reinstall this system a few times, using both versions -- the behavior has been consistent.

Programming :: Proofread Prompt / Small Error Can't Find?

Jun 1, 2011

I've set the following as my prompt:... can't post the string due to the 15 post rule. how helpful....

Everything looks fine initially.
1- It sets the username and host in back on green text.
2- It then changes to an off-white an prints the command number for the terminal.
3- Next, it prints the working directory.
4- Finally is prints a ">" character and a space. it looks like this (hostname/un edited & image enlarged slightly to make it easier to read.)

The problem occurs when I try to "up arrow" to reuse and/or edit a prior command. It prints the prior command fine, but if I arrow over to edit the command sometimes the first character can not be deleted from displaying

I'd love to post 2 screen-shots I took to show the problem but.. 15 posts?

Programming :: Keep Original Mod Date Of A File And 'date' It Back To Same File?

Jul 12, 2010

I would really like to preserve a file's original modified date and pass it back to the file as the same attribute after a script has worked on it. I get a lot of JPEG files from different places on the Net which I either turn around and upload or burn to disk, and having the "original" date of either download or last mod in a graphics app would be for me, in the long run, a lot more helpful when deciding, for instance, which files to "recycle" or pass on backing up more than once.I've tried doing this on my own every now and then. Where I run into problems is that it appears "stat" and "date" use different formats for date information, and I can't seem to puzzle out how to "translate" one to the other satisfactorily for the latter command.

Just to give an example:
stat foo.jpg |grep Modify gives me
Modify: 2010-07-12 06:28:56.890625000 -0400

Passing that string as-is to date foo.jpg, I get the errordate: unknown option -- 0 and the usual semi-courteous suggestion to Try 'date --help' for more information.Somehow my TexInfo database got screwed up somewhere along the line and info dategives me the short article on date input formats, not the full documentation for the command

Ubuntu :: Default Panel, Deleted Some Items By Mistake, Can't Find Them To Put Back?

I was playing around with the default panel that has the power icon (wrong lingo maybe) and the network/sound icons, etc.I deleted some items including the power icon and now for the life of me can't find it in the panel applets list in lubuntu.Is there a way to restore the default panel with the settings as when I first installed lubuntu.I also played with some spacings and other settings so would rather just get it back to normal/restore it vs add all the items back on and then play with the spacings again.

Software :: Grub Drops To Grub Prompt On Boot / But Can Use Commands To Find Menu

Jun 5, 2009

I've got myself the curious situation where, when I boot the system, I can get grub to start, but it always drops to the prompt.

I can run:configfile /grub/menu.lst

and this brings up the menu with no problems, and from there I can boot the system to either linux or windows. What I don't understand is why it wont go to the menu in the first place?As far as I can tell, grub/Kubuntu got confused when installing, as each of the hd#,# settings in the menu.lst have needed tweaking to let the system boot. (e.g. windows is actually hd0, but the original install had it at hd2. Likewise linux is on hd1, but the menu.lst had it at hd0). I've happily tweaked these to make the system boot, but would appreciate any help in convincing grub to actually load the menu without me having to use the prompt.
