Ubuntu :: Downloading And Installing Packages In Wubi ?

Sep 4, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 and just installed it on this computer with Wubi. I had a previous version of Ubuntu on another computer and did some programming on it. My issue is that downloading a software package from the Ubuntu Software Center or the Synaptic Package manager rarely works. The download proceeds at 1000B/sec and when it gets to applying changes, it stalls out. Now, my Internet connection is solid and i can easily stream videos and download files at over 2 MB/sec.

Ubuntu :: While Installing Wubi It Starts Downloading ISO - Why

Mar 22, 2011

I mean, I have the latest version of ISO (Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat) downloaded on my computer and then i) made a startup USB disk using Ubuntu's built-in startup disk creator and ii) created a bootable CD drive with that downloaded ISO. Then whenever I tried installing it inside Windows*, I notice that the installer (Wubi) begins downloading the entire ISO from the Internet. I tried disconnecting the network but that returns an error and the installation stops. I remember my good days with installing Ubuntu Karmic Koala using Wubi on my computer. It never started downloading.

The problem appears to occur with Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10 and 11.04 (I don't care about Natty yet, though). I want to know why this happens. Since the entire ISO is here, why would it want to download the entire ISO from the Internet? It's impossible to let it download. Is there any possible solution to this problem? The reason I'm trying to install Ubuntu inside windows is that I don't want to mess with Grub. My brother installed Ubuntu on his hard drive in a separate partition and when he uninstalled it for some reason, he couldn't log in to Windows because grub was there and MBR was missing.

Ubuntu :: No Sound In KDE When Started By Startx While Working Fine When Started By Kdm/gdm

Dec 14, 2010

I recently installed KDE in my ubuntu 10.10. To access KDE, I want to use
startx /usr/bin/startkdeBut using it disables sound in KDE (Sound is working fine in GNOME). It doesn't sound for anything like login sound, totem, mplayer or any other playerBut when I press Alt+Ctrl+F1 to change to virtual console, the playback resumes from where it was in time and when coming back Alt+Ctrl+F7 and the time in totem (or any other player) doesn't move. While log out also it doesn't play logout sound and doesn't logout, so I have to press Ctrl+Alt+F1 so that logout sound play then it exits.When starting KDE by kdm or gdm, the sound works normally. But I don't want to login again using kdm or gdm and not to use root user to start kdm or gdm.I don't know what is the difference between when KDE is started by startx or by kdm/gdm where the same user login in kdm/gdm as that for startx

Ubuntu :: Unblock A Webpage In 10.04?

Aug 4, 2010

I inadvertently blocked a web page and get the following message when I try to open it using Firefox.

"The page isn't redirecting properly Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. * This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I can change users and access the web page or change computers. No other websites were affected. Is there a way in Ubuntu or Gnome to unblock a website to accept cookies?

Ubuntu :: Using FTP Client FileZilla Without A Webpage?

Jan 14, 2010

I would like to know if there's a way of using FileZilla or another FTP client without having a web page. My intention is to have my files on a server and download them form time to time from different computers using FileZilla's portable version. It would also serve as a Back-up copy of 'em. If there's no way of doing that, I can get a subdomain from, that is free and without a file limit?

Ubuntu :: Make Webpage Look Same On All Displays

Sep 30, 2010

I have recently put together a website for my local club using Kompozer, Filezilla, and other open-source apps:


Very simple; no CSS or frames, just tables. My question is this: How do I get the webpage to appear uniform on all displays? When I work on it on my own machine all is looking good, everything nice. But when I go to the club and check on one of their boxes or use a computer somewhere else, things are bent out of shape; the layout is too wide or thin, things are oversized or not, the main heading is on two lines instead of one. A real dog's breakfast.

I learn as I go but one thing I'm figuring is that I should scale my images in Gimp to the desired size rather than drag them to size in Kompozer.

I have looked for an answer to this, tried a few things adding various code to the page, but nothing so far seems to be working. I'm sure this is simple fix but I just haven't stumbled over it yet.

Ubuntu Networking :: 11.04 - DNS Errors / Webpage Not Available

May 12, 2011

I have recently upgraded to the new ubuntu 11.04 but am having problems with the internet. Often When I try to access a website it takes a long time (5-10 minutes) to load even google, and sometimes I just get the following error message:
This web page is not available. The server at google.com can't be found because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the web service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Chromium from accessing the network.

Here are some suggestions:
- Reload this web page later.
- Check your Internet connection. Reboot any routers, modems or other network devices that you may be using.
- Check your DNS settings. Contact your network administrator if you're not sure what this means.
- Try disabling DNS prefetching by following these steps: Go to Spanner menu > Preferences > Under the Bonnet and deselect "Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance".
- Try adding Chromium as a permitted programme in your firewall or antivirus software's settings. - If it is already a permitted programme, try deleting it from the list of permitted programmes and adding it again.
- If you use a proxy server, check your proxy settings or check with your network administrator to make sure that the proxy server is working.
- If you don't believe that you should be using a proxy server, try the following steps: Go to Spanner menu > Options > Under the Hood > Change proxy settings and make sure that your configuration is set to "no proxy" or "direct".
Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server's DNS address.

I have tried to access the internet using Chrome, Firefox, Konqueror, on the Untiy Desktop, and the Classic Desktop. I've checked my Proxy settings in Chrome (My main browser) and its set to direct internet connection. I've Disabled the UFW. I've edited the resolv.conf which initially showed:

# Generated by NetworkManager
domain HG532.com
search HG532.com
and edited it to:

# Generated by NetworkManager
and even tried the Google DNS server:

# Generated by NetworkManager

But nothing works. It seems like When I initially log on to the internet it runs fine, but over the coarse of 10 minutes the page loading times go down then eventually I just get the above error message. There are other computers here running windows which connect through the same wireless fine.

Ubuntu :: Can't Embed Video On Webpage

Jul 22, 2011

I'm trying to embed a video on my website, and It keeps asking me if I want to save it, instead of just playing it. How do I embed to play and not pop-up the "save" dialog?

Today I demonstrated a simple SSH dictionary attack for a friend. Lucky for you - I also recorded it. (I've made my pw ridiculous and re-secured the box so don't even try it now lol - it'll take 100's of years to crack brute-force).

Anyways, here's what you'll need:<ol><li><a href="http://nmap.org/" target="_blank">NMap</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.foofus.net/~jmk/medusa/medusa.html"


That's what I have. It shows the box where the video should be - but doesn't play it, just asks to save. Not sure if it's something with my browser plugins... or my code on my page... ? Tried with FireFox and Rekonq - same results. Tried with many different embed codes as well - all same results.
