OpenSUSE :: Install KDE Alongside Gnome Post-install?

Jun 20, 2011

When i installed 11.4 i selected gnome as my desktop. Now i want to give KDE (suses default desktop) a shot. Witch packages do i have to install to have a FULL KDE enviroment as if i would have selected KDE when i installed suse? Not just the desktop, but kde apps, themes, etc. Or even better. Is there a "Meta package" that installs everything?

OpenSUSE Install :: Install Suse Alongside An Existing Install?

Apr 18, 2010

i have a backtrack install that i would like to keep while installing suse for an everyday OS; i start the install process but when it gets to partitioning the hard drive, it doesnt seem to recognize anything already being on there; it just gives me the setup for suse, ie:
sda1 ext3 = OS sda2 or sda5 = swap. do i have to configure a partition scheme? i installed ubuntu on a desktop alongside windows very easily due to grub graphical install/partition; is there not a similar function for suse?

OpenSUSE Install :: Post-install Update Fails

Nov 18, 2009

On a fresh install (tried two new installs now) I'm getting an error when I try to go out to the update repositories after the install. I'm getting a "failed to download /suse/setup/descr/packages.DU.gz from [URL] It seems to get about 48% and just hangs there. This happens both if I try downloading updates during the install or if I try doing an on-line update after the system is up.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 Post-software Update X Server Won't Start

Nov 7, 2010

I have been running OpenSuSE 11.1 with the proprietary VNIDIA driver for a year or so and recently upgraded my internet connection from slow old dialup. I installed some software upgrades this made possible but the process failed on some point (I didn't make a note of the details) and the next time I tried to log on it booted up to the CLI. I tried startx and got the message;

using config file "etc/x11/xorg.conf"

Fatal server error

xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4, Gnome 3 New Install / No NTFS Partitions Detected?

Apr 24, 2011

I've just installed 11.4 and then updated to gnome 3. I've noticed that Nautilus doesn't appear to mount my windows NTFS partition. I find this odd because both Ubuntu and Fedora detect and mount it just fine in Gnome 3 (I've been trying all 3 this week).

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Install 10.10 Alongside Win 7

Dec 27, 2010

New 64 bit Compaq laptop 250 GB with Win 7 pre-installed. Using the Windows disk management tool I shrank the main partition creating 60 GB free space, which I then formatted as F:. Now Windows reports the following partitions:

C: 157 GB capacity, 79% free
HP_TOOLS 99 MB capacity, 93% free
RECOVERY (D: 16 GB capacity, 14% free
SYSTEM 199 MB capacity, 83% free
UBUNTU (F: 60 GB, 100% free


The installer does NOT offer the "alongside" installation option. I also tried a 10.04 live CD installer, and it also did not offer the side-by-side option. So neither installer can see Win7 on the disk. Now how do I do the installation? I'd like to dual-boot rather than devote the laptop to UBUNTU-only.

Ubuntu :: Install Gimp2.7 Alongside 2.6?

I'm running gimp2.6 on ubuntu 10.10. I need to use gimp for everyday work. 2.6 is stable, but I'm curious about the development version. A recent post on the gimp developers list referred to 2.7 as "only mildly buggy". Is there a way to install 2.7 alongside 2.6? I'd like to be able to run one or the other. I'd like to be able to install 2.7, but have the option of running 2.6 with all it's neccessary libraries unintefered with.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install 11.04 Alongside 10.10?

May 3, 2011

I burned the .iso to DVD and 11.04 seems to work fine on my Vostro 200 which is currently running 10.10. After hearing all of other peoples problems installing, I thought I might install 11.04 alongside of 10.10 which I noticed was an option. What are, if any, the hangups in doing this? Sounds great if I can play with 11.04 and its settings while keeping my 10.10 going strong.

OpenSUSE :: Install Gnome Desktop After KDE Install (11.2)

Apr 4, 2010

I installed KDE from a CD. Then decided I wanted to have Gnome has an option. I installed "gnome-desktop" via software manager (as per some other instructions on the forum) but I still have no option to choose Gnome when logging in.

What all do I choose to get the complete Gnome environment? Or is it better (& easier?) to reinstall with a DVD?

Ubuntu :: Install Firefox 4 Alongside Existing Ff 5 On 11.04

Jun 13, 2011

Before you start thinking that I made a mistake with the title of the thread, or thinking that FF5 has not been ye unvelied (it is, its a beta AFAIK), read my story: I dont know how it happened, I think it may be a ppa, but I dont know which one (could it be independent third party sources?). Other ideas are welcomed. Thing is: when I click the FF icon I access to ff5, and there are a number of aps that are not compatible, thus, my need to keep using ff4. I googled and found: [URL]... and tried to follow the instructions: ff5 works without issues ff4: created a new directory in /home/dexter/Compiled/firefox4, where I extracted ff4.tar.bzz.

I have also run Code: firefox -profilemanager and created 2 profiles: Firefox5 and Firefox4 Firefox5 leads to ff5 without issues, I didnt change anything Firefox4: I have tried to link it to the current folder of ff4, so it reads: /home/dexter/Compiled/firefox4. Launchers: the ff icon leads to ff5, no issues newly created ff4 launcher reads: /home/dexter/Compiled/firefox4 -no-remote -P "Firefox4" but when clicked:. Could not launch application, Failed to execute child process "/home/dexter/Compiled/firefox4" (Permission denied)

Debian Installation :: Install Ubuntu 14.04 Alongside Wheezy

Apr 23, 2015

I have a laptop primarily used for a client work. It is running Debian Wheezy, and wish to keep it intact in case I need to do more work for client.

I would like to install Ubuntu 14.04 alongside Debian, and use Ubuntu as a bit of a play/experiment area, etc... HD has lots of space (600GB free), and as far as I can tell Grub is installed in MBR.

I did some searches, and from what I can tell, it sounds like I can just install Ubuntu from ISO file, specify how much space to use (say 400GB), and that's it. This sounds almost too easy. Once I install and restart machine, will there be selection for what Distro to boot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Alongside Windows Not Showing

Feb 8, 2011

I'm not very experienced in working with Ubuntu. I did try it using Wubi to install and that I liked very much. But now with the latest version (10.10) the wubi installer isn't showing every option. How do I get the old interface where you can install it alongside Windows? The first attachment is what I get when opening wubi.exe and the second one is what I would like. That is a 10.04 version.

Ubuntu :: Grub Error 18 After Install Of Jaunty Alongside Lucid?

Apr 11, 2010

I had installed Lucid on a clean install on my laptop - three partitions - ext4 home, ext4 lucid and swap.I've been using it for around a week, and find it a bit buggy in places, so I thought I would install jaunty (which proved very reliable in the past). I used the usual installer, and made my /home partition smaller, and created a new ext3 partition for jaunty, assigning the smaller partition to /home.The install proceded without any problems, but on rebooting I just get this:GRUB Loading stage1.5GRUB loading, please wait...Error 18I was hoping that Jaunty would not install grub, but I didn't see any option to prevent this during the installation. I suspect Grub 1.5 has been installed and now it's all messed up

Ubuntu / Apple :: Install Mac Os X On Macbook Alongside Existing Single-boot?

Nov 2, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 as the only OS on my Macbook 2,1's entire hard drive (used Live CD to reformat and install). Now I am wondering if it is possible to add a partition and install Mac OS X Snow Leopard alongside Ubuntu, for dual boot purposes. I have seen a lot of documentation for doing this the other way around--adding a Ubuntu partition to an existing Mac OS X installation, but I haven't found an answer for adding OSX to existing Ubuntu. If anyone knows anything about this
