Ubuntu :: Half The Commands Enter Do Nothing And The Other Half Or Not Found Or Are Incorrect?

Jun 22, 2011

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this. I'm not sure which veraion of linux I have but it was the latest veraon bfor the recent update. I accidentally hit alt ctrl f11 and my comp went inyo the grub menu. I've tried startx and it does nothing. About half the commands I enter do nothing and the other half r not found or are incorrect. The only vommand thw actualley work is reboot. I searched for this and read a grub guide but it did no good.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Half Is In English And Half In Another Language After Upgrading To 10.04

May 27, 2010

I just upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 and so far I have those problems:

1. Before, everything in my system was in English. Now, half is in English, half in another language (PCManFM, some menus etc). I tried setting up Language Support but it changes nothing.

2. Cursor themes work only when hovering the mouse over "X" buttons in the right top corner of the window. As soon as I move the mouse somewhere else, it goes back to default cursor theme, even though I tried selecting 5 different themes - same result.

4. Hibernation don't work anymore. s2disk saves image to disk and then it resumes it but computer stops on text message along the lines of "Resume completed successfully".

5. Changing volume with keyboard shotcuts no longer works.

6. Smplayer does not display picture anymore when playing movies. The view is just empty. I can only hear the soundtrack. It is using XV filter.

7. PCmanFM that used to worked flawlessly, now after going into 1 or 2 subdirectories stops reacting to clicks on file/folder list. Need to open new instance to be able to do anything and this again would become unusable after visiting 1-2 folders.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Keep Getting Logged Out Within Half Second

Oct 24, 2010

I am quite new to this ubuntu business, but i like what I'm seeing so far. Well, almost everything that I'm seeing. I seem to have run into a tricky problem with xubuntu 10.04. I was in the process of customizing my desktop appearance (via Xfce4 Settings manager), and I found a nice theme to go with (dusk I think it was called). I then went on to change the window settings and starting from the bottom most option I browsed the various styles. After a few of these my computer decided to log me out quite suddenly, and I was prompted to login.

This is where the problem is: I type in my password and it logs me in for maybe a half a second only to log me out again. No matter how many times I put in the password I keep getting logged out. So now I'm running xubuntu 10.04 off a pendrive that was used in its initial installation. Is there any way to log back in and stay logged in long enough to undo the window styling at fault? I had put in quite a bit of work migrating files, installing all sorts of things and setting up fancy launchers, and I would prefer not to have to redo it again.

Ubuntu :: AMD CPU Runs At Less Than Half Speed?

Jun 9, 2010

I have a machine currently running Debian Lenny on which I would like to run Ubuntu for the driver support in its newer kernel. However, I did a test boot from the installation CD and it appears to be running at less than half its rated speed. This is the output from the Debian kernel:

brendand@kant:~$ uname -a
Linux kant 2.6.26-2-amd64 #1 SMP Wed May 12 18:03:14 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
brendand@kant:~$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor: 0


Maybe this is some sort of power save bug where the CPU speed is incorrectly scaled back. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Should I report it as a bug, and, if so, how do I do that?

Ubuntu :: DVD Burner - Half Dvd Blank

May 13, 2011

Finally got around to buying a DVD player so i put 3 old Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns on one dvd and it plays fine on the computer. However , when played on the tv-dvd player only one movie ( the last one on the dvd ) would play . I did not use a 3rd party converter app as the dvd player advertised that it would play standard avi movies. I burned with Brassero and noted that half the dvd was still blank if that's relative .

Ubuntu Installation :: Missing Half Of HD After Partitioning

Jun 19, 2010

I recently upgraded from XP to Kubuntu, and I noticed that during partitioning (during installation) I could only partition 80GB out of the 160GB I should have.

df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 71G 2.8G 64G 5% /
none 719M 296K 718M 1% /dev

none 71G 2.8G 64G 5% /var/lib/ureadahead/debugfs
/dev/sdb1 7.1G 5.8G 964M 86% /media/disk

sudo fdisk -l | grep Disk
Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000ed7ef
Disk /dev/sdb: 8004 MB, 8004132864 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000a154d

Also, at Grub there are several old Ubuntu selections from a previous install I did a long time ago; not the next oldest 1 or 2 Kubuntu versions, older Ubuntu versions.

Ubuntu :: Half Of My Desktop Is Missing / Get Full?

Jul 17, 2010

My desktop has been shifted about half way to the right and a "black hole" has been left. I'm not sure how else to describe this, so I will include a picture to try to make things clearer:

I have no idea how I have done this. The Android SDK Emulator is the only thing I have downloaded and played with recently. I've checked monitor settings, changed the background image, adjusted the number of desktops (all desktops are affected), logged out & back in and rebooted. I'm not sure where else to look. Googling hasn't given me any more clues so far.

Everything else is working fine. Windows will open up normally and cover up the "black hole". Although they do leave an after-image, particularly when you move them around - like a 70s video clip!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Cuts To About Half Volume?

Jul 11, 2010

When the opening little music plays during start up, the first half of it is loud, but halfway through, the sound cuts to about half volume. Everything else afterwards is also very quiet. After boosting the volume output to 150%, and boosting VLC's audio output to 200%, the audio is still barely audible on my laptop. I've gone into alsamixer, and it's at max. I once found how to reset the audio card, and the sound was normal again, but only until I shut the laptop off, and next time, it was the same as always.

I'm on Ubuntu 9.10, and using an old Toshiba Satellite laptop. Don't know what my sound card is.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How Can I Half Video's Quality And Size

Aug 8, 2010

I have a 500MB video that is 720x400. I want to half the size of the video while retaining the same relative quality.My main goal is to half the filesize of the video, but to do that and keep the same relative quality I will have to also make the resolution smaller.I can't seem to find a way to do this.I would preferer to use ffmpeg, but any solution would be good at this point. I would really like to be able to do this from the command line, but if there is a gui program that will also give me the command line it uses, that's great too.Does any one know of a way to half the file size of a video while maintaining the same relative quality?

Ubuntu :: First Half Second Of Sound Distorted In Maverick (PulseAudio)

Oct 10, 2010

Any sound playing through pulseaudio is distorted for the first half-second or so. Sounds like a buzzing or crackling or something. This happens, for example, in Pidgin and Clementine (music player). If I set these programs to output through alsa instead of pulseaudio, there's no such problem. Also no such problem existed in 10.04. And I tried the fix in the sticky, nothing changed. Probably less than a half second of distortion, really. Maybe 100ms.

Ubuntu :: Crashed 5 Times In The Last Hour And A Half - Constantly ?

Nov 29, 2010

I want to know what other people have done to stop their computers from crashing. My main computer has now crashed 5 times in the last hour and a half.

I am not using Compiz, and to the best of my knowledge it is uninstalled. I try not to use flash with the internet. I am using the 64 bit version of 10.04, because I want to make use of my 8GB of RAM.

The computer crashes constantly. Constantly. Usually when I am using it. I can leave it on for days without a problem; but as soon as I need to get work done, it starts crashing.

Some specs:
ASUS P7P55D Pro motherboard
Intel i5-750 processor.
evga GTS 250 video card with NVIDIA drivers (uptodate)
Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit

I need a gameplan to make this computer stop crashing. how to start diagnosing the causes of these crashes.

Fedora :: F13 Crashes On Half Of Boots / Resolve This?

Jun 12, 2010

Hello everyone. I switched over to Fedora a little while ago, maybe a month or two, towards the end of when 12 was out. 12 ran just fine, but around when I upgraded to 13 I started experiencing issues. I first upgraded by switching repositories and installing via yum, which seemed to run fine for awhile. However, came to the point where about every other boot (a little more often, actually), the system would crash at the login screen, not allowing me to login. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace or other rescue keys don't work- in fact, if the mouse is still working, they freeze the pointer as well.

Finally I decided to get the 13 DVD and re-install. Downloaded, media checked out, ran the install... and I'm still having the same issues. I know I should be providing more info here, but I'm not sure what log files to look for and post here. A few notes of relevance are that I've tried changing the ACPI settings in my BIOS to be as compatible as possible, and also tried booting using noacpi, which doesn't seem to be fixing it- I also have Nouveau installed.

So, what should I do? Anything I need to provide to help troubleshoot, I'll gladly do.
