I wanted to check what version of GRUB I have installed. I went to terminal and typed grub --versionI got this message back: The program 'grub' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install grub
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 alongside windows xp pro. When I turn my pc on I have the option to boot to ubuntu or xp and at the top of the window it says that the version of grub running is "GNU GRUB Version 1.98+20100804-5Ubuntu-3" how I shold go about installing GRUB 2 or just leave it as is.
I have been installing programs, that I can't use. Kpackagekit assures me they are installed, as does the installer, Yet if I am to search for my installed program, it only finds the DEB file, and no installed program.
i am using Ubuntu 9.10. I want to make a live CD with some programs installed i know i can do that by chroot ,etc. but i cannot re-download all packages again due to bandwidth limit. The packages i want to have on my live CD are already installed on my OS.(i usually clear the cache after installation to save disk space). Is there a way to transfer the programs to the live CD.
ps. all the programs are installed either by deb's or apt-get, none by source...
I wanted to set up a small file/print server using Ubuntu. I'm planning on using a spare nano ITX board running C7 processor with 2GB and an 80GB drive for right now. I've set up desktop and systems and like using KDE. I've read installing KDE and X Server and have had problems running on 10.04. I can run command line but wanted to know if there are there any good GUI programs that are reasonably easy to install on server 10.04?

I am running usb version of lucid 10.04.2, with many apt-get installs. Shortly after running awhile, programs will not run, I get either an "input/output error" or "Bus error (core dumped)". (Examples of programs rendered inoperable are top, df, file)
I've read something about a memory leak in Lucid, but in my case, the computer doesnt slow down, things just stop working. Is this a known problem with Lucid? I'm thinking maybe one of my apt-get installs corrupted something. Is this a known problem that has a software update available?
Here is the output of "top" which fortunately currently DOES work, while other progs don't. (the memory usage stays constantly in that 1.5 GB range)
I'm trying to install libusb. I've downloaded a file from [URL]. I've unzipped the file; the folder's on my desktop. I've tried to install this, but I'm not sure how. Under installation it says: See the file 'INSTALL'. There are a few files that start with this term: INSTALL.libusb, INSTALL.libusb.in and install-sh. The first two appear to be the same, while the latter appears to be some sort of program.
When I double click it, I get a few options, including "run". I assumed this was the correct way to install the program, but when I hit run, nothing happens. I've displayed this file, but this gives me no additional information. I've tried running it in terminal: nothing. Maybe it has installed, and I just don't know it. How would I even check if it's installed? (I'm only installing libusb because I need it for something else).
I can't remove nor uninstall the wine programs. I have tried the uninstaller that comes with wine but it doesnt work. How can I remove them from the start menu and the uninstall list as if they never existed on my pc? The only thing I can do is to remove the files.
I made this thread last night~[URL]... Because my Ubuntu failed, and i have no idea why. I hadnt done anything different or risky.. and Ive no idea what to do. So, It appears Im going to have to do a re-install. Which, I really dont mind too much... (especially with Ubuntu) But It will stink if i *again* lose all my bookmarks , and lose track of all my installed programs. The programs, not as much of an issue as the bookmarks in my browser.. I would like to know, If I can somehow access the HDD from the LiveCD, So that I can create just a simple text list of all programs installed on the hdd? I cannot access my HDD except through the LiveCD So is there a way I can do this? Some kind of simple command I can toss into terminal, and have it output me a text file of all programs installed? or something? I really am totally clueless on how I would be able to save my chromium bookmarks.
and if i didnt customize partitions when i installsed and just used the whole drive - they're both together in the same partition right, the home just goes into the root? but it still creates a 2-3 gig swapfile?
do you recommend creating separate partitions for the home and root folder during install? is there any benefit besides being able to reinstall ubuntu without losing your data?
I have installed new programs with Yast, such as [URL].. It all installs fine (no error messages) - But how do I get to run it? I figure I need to make a shortcut on my desktop, so that I can call up the new application, but I do not know how to do that. Could anyone take a few minutes to explain this to me?
