General :: Setting Primary Monitor For Natty Narwhal

Jun 8, 2011

I'm having problems setting the primary display in my Linux environment. I tried following the instructions here which seems to be working for everyone but it didn't work for me. In my /etc/gnome-settings-daemon/xrandr folder, I edited the monitors.xml file as well. It looks like this:

<monitors version="1">
<output name="LVDS">
<output name="VGA-0">
<output name="HDMI-0">

The settings seem correct, primary is set to yes on the monitor that I want but it doesn't seem to be working as well.

Ubuntu :: Primary Monitor Setting In Gnome?

May 29, 2010

I have two monitors, the internal LCD of the laptop, and an external 23". It is working well, but sometimes dialog boxes pop up on the laptop screen inconveniently. The Gnome panel is on the big screen. For example, Firefox is running on the "main" external big screen, I select Edit|Preferences and the dialog box comes up on the laptop screen. 9.04 didn't do this. Is there a primary monitor setting or something to fix this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Setting External Monitor As Primary Display?

Aug 19, 2010

I have an ASUS 1000HE laptop running Lucid 10.04 (Desktop not netbook version) which I have connected to an external display (LCD). I don't intend to use the laptop by itself anymore therefore I have configured the display properties to turn off the laptop display and use the external display as primary. However, when the PC enters 'locked mode' or the display powers down after a defined period of time (as set in the properties) when I wake the PC and the display, it turns the laptop monitor back on .... switches the laptop screen to primary display (i.e. with the panels etc displayed on it) and extends the desktop to the external display! The only thing I can then do is go back into the configuration utility and turn the laptop monitor off again and boom, everything is fine and dandy displaying on the external display again! I don't really want to have to do this every time I come back to the PC after it has been locked nor do I want to write a script (if it can be avoided) to deal with it!

General :: Flash Player Not Upgrading On FF 3.5 With Natty Narwhal?

May 23, 2011

After the upgrade to Natty from v9.04, though, my flash player won't update past version; the latest version is This is rather annoying in its own right, the more so when I watch quite a bit of hulu. I have so far tried uninstalling and reinstalling flash through the software center and by manually installing the .tar.gz file available from this site: [URL]Perhaps most distressing is that the site advertises that you're downloading v10.3.181.4, when I can't get past

Interestingly, when I tried the 'download via APT' option specifically for Ubuntu, there were issues. It would get to the 'open with' box, but when I tried to click on software center, nothing would happen (software center would dehighlight, and no further action would take place) including when I specifically searched and selected software center.As of a few minutes ago, the apt server was having issues (or firefox is) and firefox reports it is unable to find the file.

General :: See System Services Are Enable - Disable In Ubuntu 11.04(Natty Narwhal)?

Aug 5, 2011

Chkconfig is a utility to update and query runlevel information for system services. Chkconfig manipulates the numerous symbolic links in /etc/init.d/, to relieve system administrators of some of the drudgery of manually editing the symbolic links.

In Debian, there are several tools with similar functionality, but users coming from other Linux distributions will find the tools in this package more familiar.

Go to Terminal and open it and type the command "chkconfig' press enter. code...

after installing just type "chkconfig"
you can see list of service which one is off or on in your system code...

Ubuntu :: Monitor After Upgrade To Natty - Wrong Setting?

May 9, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04, I've been experiencing this weird issue with my monitor. Every time I reboot or turn the monitor on, the colors in Ubuntu are all wrong -- really green. If I go into my monitor's control panel and go to the "Input Color Format" setting and switch it from YPbPr to RGB things go back to normal.The problem is that I can't seem to save this setting. Every time the monitor is turned off it goes back to the wrong setting. I never had this issue before so it makes me think it may have something to do with the upgrade to Natty. The monitor is a Dell SP2208WFP and it's connected to my computer through an HDMI port. I use the Intel video driver.

Ubuntu :: Emulate3Buttons In 11.04 Natty Narwhal

May 17, 2011

I've just upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04 and sorted out the mess that came along, now there's just one thing left and I'm all set. I have always used Emulate3Buttons and had it working on 10.10 earlier as well but now I can't seem to get it going.

I've edited my xorg.conf like this:
Section "InputDevice"
# generated from default
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Nothing happens if I write "yes" or "no" (or true/false).

Ubuntu :: Upgraded To Natty Narwhal 11.04 By Mistake?

Dec 23, 2010

I've been running Ubuntu on my laptop for a while, and I recently upgraded from 10.04 in Ubuntu using System -> Admin -> Update manager. However, when I now run System -> About Ubuntu, I'm told I'm running Natty Narwhal 11.04, rather than Ubuntu 10.10 which I was aiming for. I never noticed this earlier, though... I guess it's a month or two since I upgraded.Did something go wrong in the update and cause this to happen by mistake?I there a way for me to downgrade to 10.10?

Ubuntu :: Login Screen Natty Narwhal?

May 9, 2011

I thought before breaking my working PC, i thought id better ask the question.Is it possible to download a GDM log in theme and get it running on Natty? I've googled loads of possibilities, but got a feeling that as Natty is GDM2 it can't be done.I've downloaded Tweak and been able to change the log in wallpaper and the icon, but i want one of those fancy log in screens that ive seen on Gnome eyecandy.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - Natty Narwhal Will Not Connect To Router

Jun 1, 2011

I have Ubuntu 11.04 Natty and when I started it the first time it wasn't connected to the Internet. I refreshed and did the basic stuff. But it wasn't so simple. I went to Network Tools and Natty didn't recognize my router. I am not connected through Ethernet either. I can't do/can't afford to do an ethernet hookup. I don't want to spend my time running a cable to the floor below my CPU. Anyway, I have a Broadcom 4306 Network Controller. I am currently using my Windows to post. Also, I can't get drivers from Synaptic or anything (that includes NDISwrapper). Can I use Windows drivers without downloading NDISwrapper? I'm so confused and starting to think this is hopeless. Even worse: I don't have a disk for installing Ubuntu, I downloaded online alongside Windows with Wubi, Again, my network controller is a Broadcom 4306.

Ubuntu :: GRUB Files Missing In Natty Narwhal (11.04)

Jan 14, 2011

A couple months ago, I created a dual boot between Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 using wubi. I then upgraded to 10.10. What would usually happen is I would start up my laptop and it'll go to the Windows boot manager, letting me choose between Windows 7 and Ubuntu. If I would choose Ubuntu, it would go to a GRUB boot manager. It would let me choose between several different ways to boot Ubuntu, mainly that there were different options that were all the same except they had different numbers in the name, i.e. Ubuntu, whatever, or something like that.

A couple weeks ago, I updated to 11.04. At first it worked good, but then a couple days later I updated a bunch of packages. It tried to CAT a GRUB file and failed. It gave me an error code, but I ignored it. Yesterday, I updated again, but since last time failed, it told me to do a partial upgrade. This I did, and it was successful. But now, everytime I go to GRUB and try to select any of the options, it tells me "Error: File not Found" and I cannot boot into Ubuntu. There are recovery versions for each choice, and using these I can boot into Ubuntu in low graphics mode and I can also get to a command line prompt.

Ubuntu Networking :: Natty Narwhal Wireless Disconnects?

May 8, 2011

I recently upgraded from Maverick Meerkat to (classic) Natty Narwhal Ubuntu Linux. I am running on a Toshiba Satellite A665 (Intel i7). I use a wireless internet connection. Under Maverick, I had no issues. Under the update, I am finding that occasionally things stop working: The indicator Applet looks fine, but from a terminal, I find that I am no longer able to ping my own router (less than 10 feet away.) This behavior occurs after working fine for a few hours. I am unsure if anything in particular triggers it (I will report back if I determine a particular cause). I have a few other computers (2 running Windows, and the other Maverick Meerkat) -- and they are unaffected. Turning wireless off and on resolves the issue for me on Natty. Rebooting also works. Here's some hopefully relevant technical details about my system:

~$ rfkill list all
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - Natty Narwhal Normal Shutdown Not Happening

May 10, 2011

I have installed ubuntu 11.04 on my HCL Me Laptop. The OS is not getting halted when I use the shut down or the restart menu from the GUI. It is not shutting down when used the commands 'sudo shut down now' or 'sudo poweroff now' or 'sudo halt now' or 'sudo init 0' also. Except when used the 'shut down' command, the command line hangs at:

init: plymouth-upstart-bridge main process (1981) terminated with status 1
checking for running unattended upgrades.

When used the 'shut down' command, the violet screen where the word ' ubuntu ' is written appears and hangs. I have updated my OS yesterday, but it is not fixing the problem. All the time I am using power button to have a forced shutdown. I loved the natty nerwhal.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Config Trouble On 11.04 Natty Narwhal?

May 10, 2011

I am having some trouble using the compiz config settings on the new "Natty Narwhal" 11.04. On 10.4, it worked seamlessly; the 3D desktop cube worked, 3D windows worked, and rotating desktop cube also worked. On Natty Narwhal, nothing works-- at all. It may seem kind of childish for me to download compiz config just for the cube, but the fact that compiz config alone isn't even working is kind of making me nervous. Though, it would be great if someone could help me with the cube.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Not Working On Natty Narwhal?

Jul 25, 2011

I have a Broadcom BCM4318 that isn't working with the B43 or the other (I tried installing both and while they supposedly installed successfully, neither shows up in the Additional Drivers tab for me to enable.) I tried using both sets of directions stickied up at the top of this forum. Neither seems to be working for me (no guarantees on whether I did it right) though the B43 is apparently the one I need.Disclaimer: I'm a total newbie to using command line and a new convert from Windows so I'm rusty at navigating and making things work, though things are finally starting to make a little sense after two days of hacking at it.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Won't Redirect To Webpages From Bug Report & Others (11.04 Natty Narwhal)

Apr 6, 2011

I think from upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal. Whenever programs ask me to send reports (bug reports) they fail to redirect me to the proper launch pad bug report page. It just loads up my home page and acts like it's finished. Even if I have Firefox previously open, nothing happens.

Liferea was doing the same thing until I changed it from using the Gnome Default to Firefox. Perhaps this is a gnome default failure or something?
