Ubuntu :: File Operations Is Buggy?

Sep 3, 2010

Whenever I move files from a USB memory stick or external hard drive or any other such device the file only seems to transfer 99% of the data and often during moving file operations will freeze and an offer of 'force quit' will come up (although file operations will eventually vanish with the 99% of the file being moved).

Can anything be done to rectify problems with file operations?

Ubuntu :: File Operations Take 15 To 30 Seconds?

May 16, 2010

Sometimes while using Open Office, trying to open a file the dialog box takes 15 to 30 seconds of spinning balls until it shows me anything. Then changing a directory takes another 15 to 30 seconds. Visual feedback on selections take several seconds, and often I find myself a couple of subdirectories down from where I wanted to go due to caching of unacknowledged clicks.

My system is usually very, very fast, as one would expect from the specs. This problem happened, well, almost all the time with kernel 2.6.32-21-generic, now it just started happening again with 2.6.32-22-generic.During these slowdowns, opening Dolphin reveals the same problem, exceedingly slow response. While this is happening, top shows the system is not busy, and the hard disk light is not flashing. Idle is over 90% and user and sys are basically nothing. The system is basically doing nothing while making me wait.

Ubuntu :: Large File Copy Operations Freezing Up Computer?

Sep 9, 2010

Ok so I'm running Mint (not full Ubuntu), and I'm not sure if this is a problem with the FS, Kernel, what not.I'm running Linux Mint 9 - x64 - kernel - and when I did a large file copy operation (9GB) it froze up my system until the copy operation was done. I couldn't even use Pidgin, Mozilla, or anything, when trying to open up another Terminal it froze as well.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Freezing On Extended Operations Involving The File System / Hard Drive

Oct 4, 2010

I have a Toshiba laptop that seems to be freezing on extended operations involving the file system/hard drive. (that's kind of a guess on my part). The system has frozen during the last day or two when I:

- try a large file operation with Nautilus
- try exporting a large video file from Kdenlive
- try formatting the disk for a new install of Maverick (I decided that with the new version almost out, I might try upgrading in case I broke my system)

What I see is the screen freezing and the mouse does not move. As I said, I tried installing the Maverick RC from the Alternate CD (I wanted to do a minimal install). The install hung on the partitioning step and the caps-lock key started blinking (though I don't get this in other cases). I have booted into my Lucid live-cd and a Puppy live-cd to try Gparted, with the same results - the system freezes (but the caps-lock key doesn't blink). Puppy HAS performed better generally, for example I was able to complete my large file operation (backing things up!) but it is freezing on the partitioning step.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Looks Buggy And Glitchy

Dec 21, 2010

Whenever I open a folder using the gnome panel (places,) Nautilus runs and the window looks like it was designed when the first GUI was. It's all grey and doesn't match the rest of the GUI at all.However, when I gksudo nautilus in Terminal, the window that opens looks perfectly fine and how it should look.Also, the messed up nautilus does not have a bar with File, edit, and the other options.

Ubuntu :: Buggy GDM - Sometimes Fails To Start 10.10

Apr 9, 2011

Ubuntu 10.10

Awhile back I was playing around with Plymouth and GDM resolutions. I followed some wrong instructions and screwed up my GDM. I have fixed my GDM, sorta, but at times it will not start or when it does the login screen has strange pixel errors.

Sometimes it starts fine without any problems or pixel errors. Other times I have to boot 2 to 3 times before GDM will start.

If GDM starts with pixel errors, I can still login to Ubuntu and the rest of the OS runs fine. Pixel errors only happen in GDM.

When GDM fails to start I get a blank black screen. Cannot enter command line. OS seems frozen and I have to reboot.

Ubuntu :: Appearance Settings Buggy On Boot?

May 25, 2010

Here is a description of my problem:I am running Ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop with the default Ambiance theme. I have my bottom panel deleted and instead use Docky.Sometimes on boot/reboot one of a few things happens.Either:1)My Ambiance theme loads, then...unloads?My top panel and all Nautilus windows turn to a flat gray "theme" as if I guess there are no appearance settings enabled. If I open appearance settings my panel returns to theme without doing anything else, but my Nautilus windows are still out of theme.2)My Docky bar never loads up and I have to start it manually, it then loads/works fine as if nothing is wrong.3)Both problems 1 & 2 combined.

My setup is Ubuntu 10.04 64bit running on an Athlon x2 3.0GHz with 8gig of DDR2 dual channel RAM and a Geforce 9800GTX+ video card. I had the latest factory NVidia driver installed and figured that might be causing the problem. I switched an older release of the NVidia driver last night to see if that fixes anything, but being an intermittent problem only a few days use will tell. I would not use the NVidia drivers at all, but I figured I would not be able to use Docky as it requires compositing to be enabled (which I was under the assumption were under the special effects that I need the NVidia driver for).

Ubuntu :: 10.10 On Samsung R530 Buggy And Freezing?

Nov 28, 2010

I bought a new Samsung R530 laptop, which is a 64bit, a few months ago and have been struggling to get the thing working properly since.I removed W7 and install Ubuntu 10.4, which I found was freezing periodically for five to ten minutes, then I installed 10.10 beta, finding that this too kept 'sticking'.I had hoped that the full release would have fixed the issues, but this too was slow, the mouse froze constantly and any video I played would freeze up with sound playing normally in the background.I have followed some of the threads here and none of these things have worked for me.

On my HP netbook, my old Acer laptop and my PC, everything works fine!!!I have since installed an older copy of Ubuntu 9.10 and this seems to be working fine. No 'sticking' mouse, no system locks.Its fast and smooth, just what I have come to love about linux.What has happened to the new versions of Ubuntu?

Debian :: Is Stable Supposed To Be Buggy?

Aug 8, 2010

I don't mean this to be in any way a critical post but I've recently switched to Debian from numerious other distros because of it elidged stability and speed. However I'm using the stable version and frequently have to reboot for certain things to work and frequently multimedia based programs crash on me. I've installed the repo from debian-multimedia.org so I don't know if that's causeing any problems. It crashes on me multiple times a day. Now it's not the OS itself which is the problem I'm sure but more the software in the repos. However it was my udnerstanding that this software was pretty darn well tested.

Ubuntu :: Buggy Activation Of Screen Saver In Karmic / Solution For This?

Jan 4, 2010

My Karmic installation has two problems regarding screen saver activation:

1) VLC is set to deactivate the screen saver during playback, but the screen saver activates anyway.

2) Sometimes, when NOT running VLC, the screen saver doesn't activate itself at all. I've set it to 5 minutes, but after 5 minutes of inactivity, nothing happens. This ALWAYS occurs while running a java web applet, and SOMETIMES also occurs when no software is running at all.

I've googled this to death, but can't find any information relevant to this problem.

Ubuntu :: Disk Operations Freeze System

Jun 19, 2010

When I do some copying of files, or any background disk activity with file reading (transcoding a movie, uploading a big file to FTP, virus scanning) all computer becomes so slow, that I hardly can move my mouse, not to mention any productive use. I have SATA HDD, and Intel Quad CPU. I took measures to be sure it is not CPU or memory resource problem. Gentoo, Fedora, Windows don't freese that much on file reading. It is not a filesystem problem, or HDD, cuse I tried exactly this partition with other OSes.

Nice has a minor effect, but is is not enough, and I can't always start Nautilus with another nice level when I want to copy a file. What can I do to lower the priority of disk operations globally, and make apps to share disk thoughtput equally, not the one to occupie the disk until it finishes?

Ubuntu :: GUI Freezes During Right-click Thunar Operations?

Jul 6, 2011

This has been going on for a few days now... when doing anything involving an opened right-click menu in Thunar, there seems to be a chance that the entire desktop will "freeze". I can move the mouse cursor, but cannot interact with any windows. If I use ALT+CTR+F* to switch to a terminal session and switch back to the graphical session, all the windows on the desktop appear blank. The computer appears to be running normally, I just can't interact with the GUI.So far, I've just been shutting down and rebooting when this happens... any ideas on how to go about diagnosing the problem and/or regaining control of the graphical session? I am using compositing and making non-focused windows translucent, but no other actions cause the GUI session to freeze so I don't think it's just a graphical issue.

OpenSUSE :: Suse 11.4: Scribus 1.4.0 RC1 Buggy -> Update?

Apr 9, 2011

someone decided for whatever reason to ship Suse 11.4 with a broken version of Scribus. Not only is the application missing in the KDE-Menu after installation (had to add it manually) but it is crashing frequently. Whenever one adds new text in a Textbox (which will NOT be formated with the specified default font but the first in the list) and then immediately changes the font without first leaving the input-focus of that box: Segfault / signal 11. I understand that there is a RC2 out by now and the specific error seems to be fixed by that.

Now my question is: After having decided to ship sUSE 11.4 with a RC: Will further RCs and maybe the final release of scribus be shipped by the OpenSuse Update? Or does the user have to manually install a working version of that software?

OpenSUSE :: Update The Buggy Version Of Texinfo?

Aug 22, 2011

in 11.4 the texi2dvi version is 1.135, based on texinfo version 4.13. Now these are old buggy versions (see e.g. texi2dvi: locale-dependent error in egrep [A-z] ), causing that documentation can not be built, for example when building gcc. Now one would hope that Suse provides updates (the latest version of texinfo is 4.9), but I can't find them?

It seems to me that the installation of texinfo is a bit more complicated, because of the integration with your system, so I hesitate to install texinfo myself. Yast should have a bug-reporting facility, where one could easily report such issues. Hope somebody can help (we have to install various pieces of software, which call texi2dvi, which then breaks, making the whole build breaks, and it would be not easy to change the build of these

I have a buggy install, 11.2 and I need to be root to look around/change/fix I'm tired of being asked twice for a security code for any change/tweak/install/config when im trying to fix the issue. Which of your multiple applications do I use to make myself root? Yast doesn't seem to be doing the trick. I have eth config issues, grub issues, application update issues, security config issues, right now i just want security login issues to be fixed so im not asked a thousand times for my admin rights.

OpenSUSE Network :: Firefox Buggy During Request?

Apr 19, 2010

I am experiencing real buggyness in firefox 3.6.3. Sometimes when I click on any button e.g. this form (submit new thread), I get no response whatsoever. It lacks that responsive feel. Might I mention that it happened some of the time. Its probably not because of the ISP because I didn't have any problem before when I was using Vista. Maybe it was because I meddled with things like this and tweaking some stuff in the about:config. I'm out of ideas.

Box: openSUSE 11.2 | GNOME 2.28.2 | Acer RS740DVF | AMD64 X2 5600+ | Radeon HD4670 | 3GB RAM
