I have 11.04 installed, not using Unity, went back to Gnome2. I have tried using Synaptic and the Software Center, all installs go fine, no errors, but I cant see them in the CCSM. Everything is working very well and bug free for me. Not having a problem at all, its just that I am missing the Snowflakes, Leaves ect., and some extra effects for windows animations that I like.
Things I'v tried: Uninstalled from Synaptic and reinstalled extras plug-ins Looked in the The Software Center (everything says its installed) Yelled at Computer
I just upgraded and hated the left side vertical menu, it's just not my thing.I decided (regrettably) to deselect the Unity plug-in from with the Compiz Settings UI thinking it might get rid of it. It but, but unfortunately it rendered the desktop completely unusable and alll I have now is literally a desktop with no menu's or toolbars of any kind.Although I can login using the 'Classic' option I really think I should fix what I have broken (before reverting to 10.10).Is there any way to re-enable the Unity plugin via command line?I tried entering ccsm via terminal but nothing happens. I also tried entering configcompiz-settings-manager but again, a dead end.
I recently tried to plug in a second monitor to my graphics card in an attempt to mess around with a dual monitor set up. This created a duplicate effect (which I expected at first) but downgraded my original monitor to the second monitors max resolution. Now my xorg.conf appears to be blank and I dont believe my fglrx drivers are working anymore.
When I try to start compiz from bash I get the following:
When I attempt fglrxinfo:
I'm running Kubuntu, Karmic AMD64 ATI Radion x1350
What could have happened? All I did was plug in a second monitor and restart!
Fresh Install of lucid today,everything went fine. Installed compiz, fine, now I'm downloading the restricted extras through synaptic and wow, its going 10 to 20 kB/s. Tried downloading a file from cnet, no problem. 800+ kB/s. Think this is just related to heavy volume today?
I have experimented with several different linux distros and I was impressed with the extra software the knoppix live cd had. I installed Fedora 12 (from the DVD torrent, not live CD) and was disappointed with the scant amount of extra software that came on the install. Which linux distro comes with the most extra software from intitial install? Specifically, games, scientific/astronomy, and educational applications?
I hope that I am not repeating a thread.I can connect successfully to HotSpots in the sense that I can see the network and connect to it. However, I cannot browse. After I open FireFox I am supposed to be brought automatically to the login page, but instead it keeps saying "connecting to..." until it fails with an error message. After researching a bit further, I have found out that this happens when the package ubuntu-restricted-extras has been installed. All works perfectly before installing this package. This has been going on for quite a few releases now, I think since 9.04 at least. I have come up with this problem on three completely different computers, so I would say that the hardware is not the problem. This issue also happens with Epiphany and Konqueror, so I presume that it's not a problem with the browser neither.Rather, it looks to me like one of the many packages that are installed with ubuntu-restricted-extras causes the problem.
I managed to install xubuntu-restriced-extras on my Ubuntu 10.04 server (which btw is headless and no X installed at all) Anyways, i tried to remove it with apt-get remove, but in only deleted a couple of Kb. tried with --purge, autoremove, autoclean, clean and everything else i could think of, but my poor server is still bloated with stuff like adobe-plugins and stuff i dont need.
How can i propely remove the entire package? I could also remove the package piece by piece (since its just a dummy package, no?), but I tried to search the internet for such information, but to no avail. Where to look, what to do?(btw, this happended because i was installing the package on my xubuntu laptop, but forgot i was SSH'ing to my server
i am currently running 9.10 and was thinking of upgrading to 10.10. i was going to initally install 10.10 but i saw that it ran fluendo. does that mean the ubuntu restricted extras aren't in the future versions? i was also wondering if i would have to reinstall all my old programs.
After installing Ubuntu,Firstly i went to the terminal & typed "$ sudo apt-get install Ubuntu Restricted Extras"then i input my password,to installbut sometime later the Ubuntu Restricted Extras Package installation was failed.How can i successfully install Ubuntu Restricted Extras Package?
When installing the "restricted extras" in Ubuntu 10.10 my terminal screen freezes on the EULA screen and won't go any further... Anyone got an idea what I'm doin' wrong?... Here's what I'm running: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras Here's what I wind up with: Package configuration
I'm currently running openSUSE 11.3 x86_64 I've avant-window-navigator and awn-extras both 0.4.0-1.2python-awn and vala-awn are installedalmost all applets that I'm adding crash with "Whoops! The applet crashed. Click to restart it."what's still missingthe error-message, btw, is:

When I tried to install Ubuntu restricted extras, it shows:Requires installation of untrusted packages The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources. When I press the OK button, it stops.How can I install the package?
I have a script that runs my daily rsync, I would like to expand it to email the output, and on a fail, an alternate email address. Also I would like to have the seconds converted to HH:MM:SS if it's not a big deal. What I have so far is the extent of my abilities.
Code: start=$SECONDS; if rsync_output=$(rsync ... then echo Success; else echo Fail; fi; echo "$rsync_output" echo time in seconds =$((SECONDS-start))
I have just downloaded and installed the latest version that I know of, Centos 5.4. I initially selected all of the packages and the installations crashed. Since I am installing it on a private network I couldn't save the info. I tried deselecting the packages until finially figuring out the 'extras' was the problem. I deselected that and the installation went fine. What's on the extra's? Part of the error message was something to do with a Python. I have been trying to use Cobbler, is that part of the 'Extras'.
I thinking about running SOGO on a separate server. The server should be in a Raid1 configuration and running backups to another server. Firewall??My background is the Windows world and I'm having difficulties understanding exactly what to do, to get everything up and runningTried bits and pieces from the Perfect Server Guide ( Reading the documentation and forums. But I didn't get the big picture.
Objective -A Centos server up and running with all the software that SOGO needs installed, configured and running
I have just finished installing Karmic on new computer. I have already installed java jre, flash plugin, and unrar/rar. My question is can I still install restricted extras to get addition applications installed, without corrupting my apps already installed? Or should I just manually install the remaining items from restricted extras manually?
When I attempt to download the restricted extras from the software center, I get the following error message:
CD/DVD 'Ubuntu 10.04 LTS _Lucid Lynx_ - Release amd64 (20100427.1)' is required,Please insert the above CD/DVD into the drive '/cdrom/' to install software packages from the medium.
I have 2 Ubuntu CDs, the alternate x64 and the desktop x86. I've inserted both and still gave me the same error. The computer is running the alternate x64 version. I've already reinstalled this computer 4 times, and it NEVER asked me for the CD. Why would it ask for it now? Not only that it asks for a CD I don't have.
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 today and all was working well. I tried playing a video and was prompted to install plugins which worked fine. I then installed Open Shot, Lame and Restricted extras and now when I try to open a video (WMV, AVI, FLV etc) all I get is a prompt to search for suitable Plugin. When I click on search another prompt tells me No packages with the requested plugins were found followed by the name of the requested plugin.ie DivX MPEG-4 Version 5 decoder or Windows Media Video 9 decoder etc.Anybody any ideas how to sort this. I already reinstalled 11.04 from scratch as I had the same problem yesterday. I never had an issue like this before and been using Ubuntu for years.
Since I need to install Grace on several lab workstations, I've been working on getting the mirrors.kernel.org fedora 6 extras repo to work. This is what I've done on one workstation: Added to /etc/yum.repos.d/fc6extras.repo:
Got this dependency problem and would like to know if there is a better solution to what I've done, especially with a hard coded baseurl in the repo file: gstreamer-plugins-bad-0.10.8-4.el5.rf.i386 from installed has depsolving problems --> Missing Dependency: libSoundTouch.so.0 is needed by package gstreamer-plugins-bad-0.10.8-4.el5.rf.i386 (installed)
I've got Ubuntu 10.4 and have been using Rhythmbox to play CDs. When I put a CD in it would always be recognised and Rhythmbox would display the artist and song titles. Today I installed the following package:ubuntu-restricted-extrasThis was so I could rip CDs to MP3s. This worked, however it seems to have also had the side effect of preventing Rhythmbox from retrieving information about audio CDs. If I run Rhythmbox from a shell I get the following debug:
** (rhythmbox:2271): DEBUG: Loading the real store page ** (rhythmbox:2271): DEBUG: navigation requested to https://one.ubuntu.com/music/store-no-token
