Ubuntu :: 9.10 Fails To Launch?

Feb 27, 2010

I installed it yesterday. It worked well. I was able to log into windows without any trouble and restart into Ubuntu without a hitch.

This morning I launched Ubuntu as usual vi GRUB. I was asked to install about 135 upgrade files, which went withou an apparent challenges. I then went through the restart and noticed that there was an extra two choices in GRUB, but I just left it to launch Ubuntu automatically. Which it did.

I then messed about with the appearance settings. Noticed a some more updates were waiting which included 49 files. I went through the updating process and restart.
GRUB worked well, and I was soon loggin in with username and password.

The Ubuntu Screen became visible with the flashing horizontal line and about 3 seconds later everything froze. I waited for several minutes - I timed them - but still no progress - everything remained frozen.

I switched off the machine completely, as I knew of no other way to get out of this situation. I rebooted and when GrUB launched I booted into windows 7 with absolutely no problems.

I used restart in windows and then allowed GRUB to boot into Ubuntu. Once more I was able to log in but soon after the Ubuntu Screen appeared and the horizontal line flashed for a few seconds, everything froze. This time I waited five minutes before switching off the machine by disconnecting at the mains.

I am now using windwos 7 to make contact

Finally managed to get the broadcom wireless driver packages and poulsbo drivers to install correctly and decided to install all the offered updates.

After reboot I get the menu bar at the top but then desktop flashes between white and my background image for ages but does not give me the normal netbook tabs etc.

If I try a restart I get a pop-up saying 'Netbook Launcher is not responding'.

Ubuntu :: (11.04) Radeon 5700 Series : Catalyst Fails To Launch?

Apr 30, 2011

I really don't know what's going on here. I had Ubuntu 10.10 working great, and noticed 11.04 came out. I had been waiting a while and, for some reason, I decided to start with a fresh install rather than an upgrade.So basically here's what I've done so far:

- Installed Ubuntu 11.04 amd64
- Installed Opera, and XSensors
(sensors-detect only detected my GPU and CPU, not mainboard this time. But I can live with that.)
- Activated the FGLRX driver, rebooted.
- Tried to launch Catalyst Control Center, received this error message:
[Initialization error]

There was a problem initializing CCC Linux edition. It could be caused by the following.No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning properly. Please install the ATI driver apropriate for you ATI hardware, or configure using aticonfig.

Ubuntu :: Guest Session At Login Screen - Fails To Launch GDM

Aug 2, 2011

Basically, the problem is, we have a bunch of computers in a computer lab, that we want to students to access, but not modify in ANY way. That includes backgrounds or whatnot. And after restart, any changes they may have made, change back. Also, they can't have read access to the administrator account on the computer.

This needs to give a permission denied, or something:
cd /home/(admin account username)

The Guest Session is exactly what we are looking for, but try as I might, I can't get it to work. Because, we don't want to have to login as administrators, then activate guest session, just for our students to use the computers. The idea being, we can leave the computers in there, and not worry about the students breaking anything.

One thread I tried was: [URL]. However, using his method, will log the student into the account, and after about 5 seconds, log them back out.
The other method listed lower in the thread,
Seems to work, but upon logging out, fails to launch the gdm

Only way to restore is restarting the computer.

OpenSUSE Install :: BIOS Message - Fails To Launch From CD

May 16, 2011

Recently, for whatever reason (I am led to suspect a bad hard drive), Windows 7 failed to boot even in safe mode so I decided to just use a clear hard drive and install a far less troublesome OS, so I decided to try to use openSUSE. I used a backup laptop to download and burn the 4.7 GB release. Problem is, I haven't a clue how to get it to work. I thought just placing the burned DVD in when booting would be enough, but the BIOS keeps telling me it fails to launch from CD. Luckily, I had enough foresight to download a live CD just in case. I was able to install from the live CD, and when I checked the DVD, I was able to access all the content.

But I haven't a clue how to use it to upgrade/install all the extra software. Also, I should add I am completely new to this whole thing. While I have used Linux before, for the most part others dealt with all the administrative aspects of ensuring the system actually ran/had the needed software on it. Finally, I have one major restriction placed on this whole issue. I live out in the middle of no-where and the only internet I can get is limited to 200MB a day (I downloaded the CD/DVD elsewhere, but normally don't have a chance to do that). As such, being able to install from the DVD and not needing to download much software would be nice.

Slackware :: Default Xfce Terminal Launch Fails With Error

Feb 24, 2011

Fresh guest install of current as of changelog dated 16-Feb-2011, in to VirtualBox 4.0.4 (13.1 x86_64 host).

1. About 6 of the icons normally residing in the top half of Settings Manager are missing (names are their and functions work). Selecting 'Appearance -> Icons' and re-selecting the one choice available restores one, the rest remain MIA.

2. Default xfce Terminal launch fails with error <????> Re-selecting the default 'Preferred Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal -> Xfce Terminal' has no effect. 'Properties' shows the usual 'exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator'.

Setting 'Preferred Applications' to 'X Terminal' launches an xterm successfully as expected.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade RH9 To F10 - Install Fails - Installer Fails Media Check Due To "errors"

Jan 23, 2009

I am trying to upgrade RH9 to F10. I have downloaded dvd iso image i386. The SHA1 integrity check passes. The installer fails media check due to "errors". I did an independent verification of the DVD and zero errors found. Download was from Fedora's own torrent, so files should be verified anyway. If I bypass the media check I get the message : Running anaconda the Fedora system installer - please wait.....

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Launch Bar And Top Bar Gone?

Apr 28, 2011

I have been using ubuntu since 10.04 version and configure with compiz to activate the corners, cube, etc. No problems with that. When I upgraded to 11.04 these things were not working but honestly I did not care that much and was just playing with compiz, so I was playing with an option in compiz about the size of the icons in the new 11.04 launch bar, just when I clicked it my top bar and launch bar are gone and not coming back after rebooting many times. BTW I already uninstalled compiz via terminal and the same problem is happening, maybe important for you to know (alt+f2 or other shortcuts not working except for ctr+alt+t)

Ubuntu :: Can't Launch .sh From Icon

Jun 18, 2010

I am running Kubuntu 10.04 and i want to make some icons on the desktop to launch various telnet sessions. So i make a .sh using vi test.sh and then put in telnet 180.9.x.xx and save and quit. Then i chmod 777 it to make it executable and then moved it to my Desktop folder. But when i double click or right click and open with konsole nothing happens. I know it is probably something stupid which i have overlooked but when i have done this in Ubuntu in the past it has worked.

Ubuntu :: Apps Slow To Launch?

Mar 15, 2010

I did a install of 9.10 on a Lenovo T61p a few weeks back. The install went seamlessly and everything was running along just fine, then suddenly, I'm having the problem that every time I go to launch a new window, it takes 30 - 40 seconds for the window to launch. Once the window is launched, performance seems normal, with one exception. When I go to launch Nautilus from the "Home Folder" menu under "Places", it takes 30 - 40 seconds to launch the window, then another 10 -15 seconds for the folder items to appear. If I click to descend into a folder, it takes 10 - 15 seconds for the folder contents to appear. This stuff was all instantaneous.
