Ubuntu :: Used 11.04 And Now 10.04 Has Disappeared?

May 24, 2011

my 27GB HD, I mess about, install various distros and OSes. Before today I had fedora on it, but it doesn't matterOn my 76GB HD, I had Ubuntu 10.04, which I use most of the time.On my 250GB HD I have Ubuntu 11.04I usually use 10.04 because the graphics drivers on 11.04 don't work for me. I wanted to play a windows game, but couldn't get it working on Wine 1.2 on Ubuntu 10.04. I remembered I had Wine 1.3 on my Ubuntu 11.04, so I booted that OS.

It had been a month since I last used 11.04, so there were 180MB of updates which I installed. Then I tried my windows game in Wine. I still couldn't get it to work, so I gave up and rebooted my PC so I could go back to my main OS, Ubuntu 10.04.But I couldn't.Apparently something I did above was enough to mess up GRUB, and it wouldn't boot any OS. I think it couldn't find my hard drives or something. GRUB just stopped working.

I read a few guides about reinstalling GRUB from the liveCD, but I couldn't understand them. So I thought I'd just install Ubuntu 10.04 on my 27GB hard drive, which then should install GRUB along with it and automatically find my other OSes, Ubuntu 10.04 on my 76GB HD and Ubuntu 11.04 on my 250GB.I did this, and GRUB now works, but for some reason it can only see Ubuntu 10.04 which I just installed on my 27GB HD and Ubuntu 11.04 on my 250GB HD, and not Ubuntu 10.04 on my 76GB HD, which is my main OS!Does anybody know why and how I can fix this?TL;DR I have three hard drives. Ubuntu 10.04 on my 27GB HD and my 76GB HD, and Ubuntu 11.04 on my 250GB hard drive. For some reason GRUB can only see Ubuntu 10.04 on my 27GB HD and not my 76GB hard drive.

Ubuntu :: Log Off Button Disappeared?

Jul 13, 2010

Basically what happened is that I installed ubuntu 10.04 a few weeks ago. At some point, there were two gwibber icons in my task bar, one covering my "log off" button. (Not sure what the term for that is.) I restarted and it was fine, then it appeared again. I then shut gwibber via console, and since then my log off thing has not yet reappeared, i.e. I am constantly shutting down in console. What can I do to have that button back?

Ubuntu :: One Of Partitions Has Disappeared

Nov 9, 2010

I currently have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 in my computer, and I was booting normally with grub until last night. I tried to install Adobe Photoshop into Windows and after that I went on to reboot my system. When it restarted, grub showed a message like this:

error: no such partition
grub rescue>

I've followed some advice regarding this issue and I got this running the bash script (boot_info_script0555.sh) mentioned in some related posts. Here is my RESULTS.txt output. After a quick view, I think the biggest problem is that one of my Linux partitions has disappeared, and I don't know how to recover it.

Ubuntu :: Network Manager Is Disappeared

May 2, 2010

I was setting up my internet connection in Ubuntu 10.04, while I had to reboot.After the reboot Network icon in the top-right corner was disappeared! Really, I can't understand why.I tried to open synaptic, totally remove network-manager and network-manager-gnome and then I tried to reinstall them. After the reboot, still, there wasn't Network icon.I tried to press ALT+F2 and insert "nm-applet --sm-disable" but nothing happends.

I tried to right-click on upper-toolbar and then to go on "add panel" but I can't find out network manager (or similar).If I write on my terminal "sudo nm-applet" it says that there's already an nm-applet running but where? And how can I open it?On System/Administration/Network Tools (I don't know if this is the exactly translation...) all network parameters are 0 such us on IPs. Of course internet connection does not work!How can I restore Network Manager?

Ubuntu :: Printers Disappeared After The Update?

May 11, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.04 just after the first release was available.I configured everything - including my printers - and all was working 100% perfectly. Last friday (or perhaps thursday) I did the first update (it was big, ~60megs), and since then I have lost my printers. They are no longer listed on the "Printers" information panel.In fact, I can no longer add printers (the option is grayed out). In fact, the only option I can select is the connect to server. If I try local, I get the error that the server cannot be found.

EDIT: the original printers are networked printers, accessed via an IP address.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Disappeared From A Panel?

May 28, 2010

take it as read im still learning Ubuntu and occassionally do stupid things, like click on the unsubcribe buttons on unwanted email.

Did that and for some obscure reason i lost the default firefox icon from the top task bar. I could make a launcher on the desktop but i failed to find the firefox exe. I did get it to show hidden files, found the firefox folder but no exe file or similiar to launch.

Would someone be so kind as to tell me where to drill so i can at least put the firefox launcher on the desktop. As a fill in im using chromium, and i did find its folder hidden in firefox's.

ie... [username]/mozilla/firefox/chromium ??

Ubuntu :: Bottom Tool Bar Disappeared?

May 28, 2010

I've only been using Ubuntu for a few months, a good friend turned me on to it and I definitely like it better than any version of Windows out there, but I'm definitely still learning about it.

I may have clicked on something, but my bottom tool bar totally disappeared and I'm not sure how to get it back. Before it disappeared, none of the windows I had opened were showing up on it either.

To reiterate, I'm not sure what I clicked on to make it disappear, for the most part it just did... :-/

I was using the 9.10 distro and just upgraded to the 10.04 distro. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it either.

Ubuntu Installation :: OS Disappeared After Updating

Jun 1, 2010

well my problem is as follows: on ubuntu lucid I ran:


OK, I've learnt my lesson and won't update ubuntu anymore, since it's the second time i'm encountering serious problems after updating it. But please if somebody can, please help me fix this now. I need my os with all my settings back as it was. I've seen that my /home partition is fine, and the root partition has less files/folders than the live cd root partition has, so I believe that only some important system files went missing up to now.

Ubuntu :: Everything In Home Folder Disappeared?

Jul 29, 2010

I installed Ubuntu yesterday, ran into quite a few problems but I managed to fix all of the bigger ones, and so far I LOVE Ubuntu. Way better than Mac or Windows IMO. However there's also a few smaller problems I'd like to take care of, and I decided to start a separate thread for each one. So I don't know what happened, but everything in my home folder disappeared. So, I recreated the folders with the respective names. However, they just don't function the same. The icons look different, they don't register the same way ex: Cairo-dock's shortcuts... the links don't work, they don't show up under Places, and they show up on my desktop. I can't delete them from desktop either because they will simply disappear from the folder as well, which isn't like the real folders. So my question is how do I get those folders back and get them to look and function the same?

Ubuntu :: Login Keyring Has Disappeared?

Jul 31, 2010

I've been fiddling with a number of things the past day or two trying to get samba working, now it seems to be, but in the process of tinkering with that 've developed a new problem. Its hard to pin-point when it happened as all I know is that I restarted and was no longer prompted for any kind of password. I have been searching google for a few hours and have only found ways to make this happen on purpose, but not necessarily anything to reverse it. If somebody has any idea what has happened here This is really frustrating. I liked loging in with the keyring as opposed to the login screen and I would like things to go back that way.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Has Disappeared In 10.10?

Oct 21, 2010

I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 this weekend and it worked great. But yesterday night i flipped on my laptop and could not get on to wifi. When i right click there is no Enable wireless option. It is as if Ubuntu doesn't even know that i have wireless. Why would it stop working after a few days?

Either way I am at a complete loss at where to begin fixing this. I would be willing to do a new install but the live CD has the same problem now however it didn't the first time i instaled it:confuse d:. When i boot into my vista partition it works fine so it isn't a hardware problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: VLC Package Has Disappeared?

Nov 23, 2010

I had a problem with moving the panel, and in order to be able to move it I had to delete a couple of launchers. I have now lost VLC (Video LAN Converter), it is installed, but has gone from system/preferences/main menu so I can't start it or even put it on the menu or create a launcher. If I use Ubuntu Software Centre to un-install and re-install it it still doesn't appear.

Ubuntu :: Disappeared From Boot Menu?

Dec 29, 2010

I have been running a dual boot 9.04/xp setup without major problems for nearly a year now.(just an unresolved kyocera printer problem)

I have had issues with windows and recently needed to reinstall windows. To do this I created a slipstreamed SP3 disk. I switched to boot priority to CD and ran a repair install from there, trouble was this gave me two installs of windows at the boot menu but ubuntu disappeared from the menu at this point.

I successfully ran the repair install again from the original windows install.

I then deleted the second windows installation.

Now it boots straight to windows without the boot menu at all.

The ubuntu partition is still there however.
