I've just installed Fedora 13 and so far it's been pretty painless. But i am having some issue with dragon player. I beleive i have all of the multimedia stuff installed properly. But i am getting no video or sound from dragon player. stuff plays fine in vlc.
I am new to debian. I run debian on a laptop with nvidia geforce chip 740 m (optimus), it has been working great until today when i turned it on , the start screen did not show up and it went straight to terminal mode. Starting the kdm service manually does not do anything.
DISCLAIMER: I know I should go to the gparted forums for this question. I'm at the ubuntu forums though because I think the reason is that Ubuntu is somehow conflicting with my BackTrack linux installation; it worked fine before I installed it.Reinstalling did nothing. Trying to run from Terminal gives:
Code: matt@Matt:~$ gparted Inhibit all polling failed: Only uid 0 is authorized to inhibit the daemon
I have used a few versions of ubuntu now and each one seems to encounter the same problem loading ubuntu.
I am using a Samsung x05 laptop.
If I have a mouse, printer or even wired internet connection plugged in at any point during startup I will not be able to get past the login screen. I can login fine but the system freezes at the beige screen before the desktop appears.
I recently partitioned and installed Windows xp, which doesn't have the same problem, so I presume it is some kind of incompatibility between Ubuntu and my laptop?
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and having trouble with Amarok. It crashes on on startup. I have read that the issue is not with Amarok but rather phonon. Is there a solution? Application: Amarok (amarok), signal: Segmentation fault [Current thread is 1 (Thread 0xb68cb950 (LWP 13047))]

Whenever I try to start up using a liveCD on my computer, it crashes on me and dumps the call trace to me. This happens both on Ubuntu and Kubuntu 10.04 with similar results. I am using a Gateway(tm) GT5408 machine with a default Intel(R) BIOS built-in. At first, the booting screen shows up and seems to load, but then I find that it took too long. Whenever I pressed an arrow key, it showed a bunch of text. Most of it was talking about memory, and from what I've read, it seems like I have a bad BIOS, but I'll let other people decide on that issue. The call trace is as listed below:
I am having some trouble with RhythmBoxt runs fine until I install the package (Synaptics) Rhythmbox plugins 0.12.8-0. After I install this package and then open RhythmBox, the applications opens for a few seconds and then closes (terminates). I get a segmentation fault.I tried reinstalling but this does not help. From previous posts, others were also obtaining segmentation faults, others had success with uninstalling the rhythmbox-ubuntuone-music-store package. I do not have this installed on my system. My problem is related with the plugins package.If I run rhythmbox from the command line in sudo mode it starts without crashing but with a warning:Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Unable to grab media player keys: Could not get owner of name 'org.gnome.SettingsDaemon': no such name But when I select one of the plugin sources it then terminates and closes down
The program crashes immediately after displaying the splash screen with the following error:

Yesterday, I upgraded my Ubuntu system from 8.04 to 10.04. The installation process went smoothly, and the first boot of 10.04 was very smooth. However, after I selected 10.04 from my boot screen, the start-up process went very slow and then froze at a black screen. I shut it down and restarted it, only to have it load normally.
This happens on and off and I don't know why it's doing this.Does anyone have any idea what this could be or has had the same problems?
I've been having a bit of trouble with Nautilus for the past few days; as soon as I log in, Nautilus starts opening "Starting file manager" windows uncontrollably, and I have to 'killall nautilus' to stop it.
If I try and run nautilus from the terminal, I'm merely given the output code...
I'm running a dual boot Win7 and Ubuntu 10.04. I have them both partitioned on a 1TB drive and I also have 2 250gb internal hd's hooked up. So starting maybe yesterday, I was noticing that Win7 started crashing for absolutely no reason whatsoever where it freezes and the mouse and keyboard are unresponsive. Today I did a system restore because I was tinkering in the registry so I thought that could have been the issue. Crashed once since. But runs longer. I also checked the event log and doesn't divulge anything explaining the system crash.
And just now, I tried booting up Ubuntu and after grub, the purple splash screen flickers back and forth to the text based terminal startup. All I could make out once was "could not read partition table." that was really the only significant thing I could make out. It flickers too quickly for me to really catch what its saying.
I upgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 64bit to 11.04 64bit. When trying to launch Firefox from any area (launcher, menu and terminal) It crashes the moment it tries to start. This only happens in the new Unity UI. Switching back to Ubuntu Classic, Firefox runs just fine. Here is the message I get when starting Firefox from the terminal:
Kubuntu Maverick Meerkat 10.10 says "Unable to contact KDED". This in return disables all of my KDE services. I have already freshly installed 10.10 2 times. Also when I first login it says KWIN has crashed, but I see it running in the service Manager. I have no internet service without KDE services.
Is there any way to make Dragon Player so there is just one running instance of it at a time? Like if i have something playing and i click on something else to play have it so that the instance currently running changes to the new file instead of opening a new window?
KDE ships with the Dragon player for video playback. Trying it many times I still find it hard to use with clunky interface and playback problems, and I go back to MPlayer. How many in openSuse community use Dragon player?
I run lucid. I already have installed Medibuntu and the package libdvdcss2. Nevertheless, I still can't get DragonPlayer to play a DVD properly. Indeed, Dragon starts to play the DVD. However, the image is distorted and you can't recognize anything... This is what the terminal messages say when I start Dragon over the terminal:
Code: norma@norma:~$ dragon --play-dvd /media/cdrom0/ dragonplayer(2265)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "aspect_ratio_menu" with KXMLGUIFactory! dragonplayer(2265)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "audio_channels_menu" with KXMLGUIFactory! dragonplayer(2265)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "subtitle_channels_menu" with KXMLGUIFactory! libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 1.1.17 from http://xine.sf.net
I recently installed Kubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. It is working well, but Movie Player does not work, and Dragon Player plays videos/movies but with no audio. VLC works fine. how to either remove Movie Player and Dragon Player or make them work. I tried apt-get remove mplayer but that doesn't work. If not that, I wonder if the default media player can be changed to VLC, e.g., when you click any video it will start to play using VLC?
I installed openoffice 3.0 from openoffice site (www.openoffice.org) in my Fedora Core 6 OS computer. However, while doing that I might have made some mistakes. I removed openoffice 2.4 and 2.0 by using openoffice uninstall. In fact, couple of occasions, I have uninstalled and again fresh installed openoffice 3.0 when I noticed that moment I pressed any key, the program crashes. I have by mistaken the script ooffice, thinking that it would automatically install a new one. But there is no ooffice. I have to call soffice for that.
I'm using BSNL(India) EVDO service. I got ZTE dialer for Fedora and it works fine. But it has started causing error which was not seen when I installed system freshly. It's just been a week and whenever I disconnect ppp interface, xmessage window open and I see error message.
