General :: Adding A Live USB To A Repository Via Command Line [Kubuntu 10.04]?

Sep 3, 2010

Couple of days I go I setup VLC using Kubuntu's graphic software manager, and installed the 3 plug-ins, one of which was related to pulse. After doing this sound stopped working in flash videos. I had read, not sure where, that Kubuntu didn't use pulse (which slipped my mind when setting up VLC).

So I make the mistake of removing everything which had pulse in it's name (again, via the graphic software manager). A message popped-up saying that some packages needed to be removed/edited (a LONG list, a big clue that I was doing something stupid I guess). I let it run it's course and after that it won't boot properly.

If I boot it normally it hangs at the Kubuntu screen with the five dots filling endlessly. If I press F1 it's stuck at "checking battery status."

Recovery mode boots, but the recovery option does nothing.

So I was wondering if I could boot into recovery mode and go into the terminal and add a live USB as a repository for apt, and try to salvage the install?

Or should I admit defeat and reinstall?

General :: How To Upgrade XBMC Live Via Command Line

May 5, 2010

I've been unable to do a fresh install of XBMC Live 9.11 to my hard drive. Everytime it fails at the Install System step. But I am able to get XBMC Live 9.04.1 to install successfully. How do I upgrade XBMC Live 9.04.1 to 9.11? I understand that Ctrl+Alt+F2 brings up the command line, but what are the next set of commands to run?

Ubuntu Installation :: Getting Command Line Info To Install Kubuntu?

Apr 5, 2011

I cannot install Kubuntu 8.04LTS. When I run the Live CD and click to install it gets me the box that should show me my hard drives and possible partitions but the box is empty. I get the same when booting to the Live CD and clicking on install. I have had this CD since Kubuntu 8.04 was released. So not knowing what might be wrong I figure I will ask here for what to type in a command line to install it. I know it is an old version but it is the last one with KDE 3.5.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Medibuntu Repository From Command Line

Apr 7, 2011

I recently discovered the medibuntu repository and wanted to add the repository to synaptic. I copied and pasted the code from this: [URL] web page on's website.

The attachment shows exactly what the terminal spit out after running this command (and the command that was run - of course). What I am wondering about is the last six lines - which seem to indicate that, at a minumum, getting some key was not successful. I'm not sure how important this is; but, since I don't actually have anything I need to install from this repository right now, I wanted to be sure I'm squared away for when a time may come in the future.

After running the command I did the following to try and determine the status:

I went into synaptic > settings > repositories and looked under two of the tabs to see what was there:

The tab, "Other Sortware" Lists two entries at the bottom that stood out to me. They are:

Medibuntu - Ubuntu 11.04 "natty narwhal" (http:// free non free) which was checked.


Medibuntu (Source) - Ubuntu 11.04 "natty narwhal" (http:// free non free) (Source Code) which was not checked.

The tab, "Authentication" lists a total of three entries. Their descriptions are:

Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key

Ubuntu CD Image Automatic Signing Key


Ubuntu Extras Archive Automatic Signing Key

None of those (under this Authentication tab) strike me as having anything to do with medibuntu (could be wrong though - just not sure).

Finally, I did a search in synaptic for a library I think should be available through medibuntu, "libdvdcss." I was presented with a list of eight items, none of them matching libdvdcss by title. The closest match by title and description that I could identify was, "libdvdread4" This I did as a sort of test to see if I might be accessing that repository.

Fedora :: Adding LibX11 Permanently To Linker Command Line

Mar 15, 2011

I've been compiling a lot of games recently and most of them requires me to add libX11 to the linker command line. I can't think of nothing but to take a look at the Makefile and add -lX11. It works, but now, I'm compiling from a git repo, and I know the change will removed once I update the my working copy.To make it short, is it possible to add libX11 permanently to the linker command line?

Fedora :: Adding Variable Command Line Parameters To Desktop Launchers?

Mar 15, 2010

I have added an application launcher to my desktop and it works fine. However, I want to be able to feed parameters to the launcher before I launch the application. So, for instance, if the command is normally "/usr/bin/foo something" I want to be able to add the "something" parameter dynamically after clicking the launcher but before the application launches. Is this possible in Fedora?

Ubuntu :: Point To Kubuntu CD Instead Of Kubuntu Repository?

Mar 7, 2011

I would like to apply KDE on my Kubuntu because the current one blew up. But each time I to sudo get-apt it seems to be fetching from the cloud. Is there a way I can make it to read from my local Kubuntu CD? I have both Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Kubuntu Live CDs.

I believe the local disk read should be faster to translate than to bite the bytes across thousands of miles over the wire right?

I want to restore it to a new one where the partition size is smaller (the used space on the source partition is less than the destination partition size). Unfortunately when I try to restore it I get a error stating that I need to use -C to disable size checking.

General :: Adding A Custom Keyboard Layout In Kubuntu?

Feb 28, 2011

I have written a custom keyboard layout that I'm trying to install in Kubuntu 10.10. This is the layout: [URL]

I have added the layout as /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/dotan and made these changes:

In /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst I added this:
! layout
dotan Dotan
Of course, the !layout line was already there, I did not touch it.
In /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.xml I added this:


However, after a reboot I do not see the new layout in KDE's configuration for these things.

Note: this is a repost of a post on the geekhack forums. After posting I realised that LinuxQuestions is the better place to ask this. For reference, here is the original geekhack thread: [URL]

General :: Adding A Kernel In GRUB For Kubuntu 9.10: Invalid Magic Number

Apr 19, 2010

I've compiled and added a kernel in Gentoo before. It doesn't seem to go quite as smoothly in Kubuntu 9.10 These are the steps I followed: I unpacked the kernel in /usr/src and ran make && make modules_install succesfully. Then I copied the kernel in arch/x86/boot/bzImage to /boot/bzImage-2.6.32 This entry is the one given by Kubuntu:


menuentry "Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic" {
if [ -n ${have_grubenv} ]; then save_env recordfail; fi
set quiet=1


I just read the script that update grub uses. Changed the name of the kernel from xyz to vmlinuz-2.6.32-generic and it worked.

General :: Adding Memory From Dedicated Kubuntu Partition Back To Vista

Jan 16, 2010

I decided to remove my Kubuntu partition until I can fully dedicate my time to figuring out linux (right now I need Windows for certain things, i.e. flash and my zune).

I fixed the MBR, but the problem now is I have a 142.77 GB partition of free space. What do I do? Do I just delete it?

When I click delete this is the message I get:
"This is an Extended partition. This partition will become inaccessable if you delete it. Are you sure you want to delete this partition?"

I am essentially asking if this just means the partition will be gone and not the memory, and where the memory goes if I delete the partition.

General :: Adding A Comma To The End Of Every Nth Line In Vi (or Sed)?

I have a fairly long list of data that I am trying to put into a math program (maple) but before I can do that I need to edit the format of the data such that at the end of every 25th line I add a comma. I would prefer a solution that uses vi, but if that's impossible sed would be fine also (or awk).

General :: Adding Custom Files And Rebuilding Live CD

Jul 13, 2011

I have been able to successfully build a live Linux CD, the problem is during the course of setting up my new linux instance on my latop I had to install a few items (intel drivers). So got all the files and everything worked after manually installing, but wanted to try to rebuild the CD with all the files in the CD, rather than having to use a USB drive to put the file onto my laptop. When I made the changes to the configuration that I previously used(just edited the chroot file and did lh_build again) nothing happened the binary was no rebuilt. So some questions: If I am wanting to add files into a live CD build how do I do this? How do I rebuild a CD? or Is it possible? (i.e. I have to continually start from scratch each time).

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 And Command Line Scripts - Error - Android: Command Not Found

Mar 26, 2011

I know my way around MS Windows much better, but I just don't feel right trying to program something for Android on a Microsoft operating system. I am interested in Android programming so I followed the instructions on [URL] to install the environment on my computer...

I just installed the JDK, SDK, Eclipse successfully (or I assume):

* When I get to Step 4 where I'm supposed to run 'android' it will not run. I get the error message "android: command not found" (I am definitely in the right directory).

** When I double-click it in nautilus, it opens up in gedit. I can set the permissions in nautilus (through the properties - Allow executing file as a program) and get it to work,

My system:

Intel i7
Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat
eclipse 3.6.2
