Ubuntu :: Can't Convert Standard 9.10 Desktop Into Netbook Remix?
Feb 17, 2010
I have been trying to convert my standard 9.10 desktop installation into the Netbook Remix version.I assumed that all I had to do was add �Netbook Remix Launcher� from synaptic and set it run at startupAccording to the Wiki these are the packages that constitute the UNR:Desktop Switcher - Allows the user to switch between two desktop modes. Currently supports switching between Ubuntu Netbook Remix mode and "Classic Ubuntu" (two panels, gnome-like) mode.
Go Home Applet - A gnome-panel applet that, when clicked upon, displays the desktop. Used in a netbook-based desktop, the desktop-window will normally be the launcher. Go Home Applet also works in conjunction with the netbook-remix-launcher whereby dragging and dropping a file/url/application to the go-home-applet will automatically add it to the launcher's favorites section. Human Netbook Theme - A gtk theme for use with Ubuntu Netbook Remix Maximus - A desktop daemon which will automatically maximise and, optionally, un-decorate windows. Has support for exclusion lists and will work with any EWMH-spec compliant window-manager.
Ubuntu Netbook Remix Launcher - An easy-to-useprogram/places/favourites launcher which resides on the desktop, replacing the main-menu. indow Picker Applet - A gnome-panel applet that displays open windows as icons on the panel, and has integrated window title-bar functionality. Optimised for use on netbook-size screensNone of them seem like dependencies for the Ubuntu Netbook Remix Launcher itself, so I cant understand why it isnt working. Ive turned of compiz and disabled AWN.
I have recently installed Netbook Remix 10.04 on my MSi Wind u100, and so it dual-boots XP, as well as Netbook Remix. I'm not a huge fan of netbook remix, and I find it really doesn't add a whole lot to my netbook experience. I was quite surprised when setting up evolution and empathy to find a number of the windows didn't fit on my 1024x600 screen.As such I would like to put normal Ubuntu 10.04 onto my netbook. What would be the easiest way to do it? Should I just install it from a LiveCD, or is there a better way?
I just bought an Asus EeePC 1201PN and am planning on installing Ubuntu on it. I prefer the traditional desktop interface and thus would like to install it. I have read accounts of people having no problems with it on the 1201N and am assuming it will be the same for my netbook.My question is is there really any difference if I install the Netbook Remix Edition then get the Desktop-Switcher and change it to the traditional interface? I heard that the NRE doesn't use Nautilus. If I install NRE then use the Desktop-Switcher will I be able to use Nautilus or will it still be the NRE with everything else to "optimize" the netbook's performance?
Would it be possible to install the Desktop Edition then get repositories for things that will help my netbook perform better?
My first Netbook Remix installation (though not my first Ubuntu by far) and it seems to have installed the Desktop version.I downloaded the Netbook Remix 10.10 iso and installed via usb onto an emachines atom netbook. Did I miss a step? Is there a hidden option to select UNE instead of Desktop?
I am having trouble installing Ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix edition onto a Acer Aspire one netbook. I am attempting to install the OS from a 16GB PNY usb drive w/ the usb-universal installer and ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix .ISO
The reoccurring problem that I am encountering is that when I boot from the USB-drive and begin to install everything seems to be working, and then it is stuck at the menu where it asks who are you?; and of course i have filled in everything asked and at the bottom where you can look at what its doing in the terminal/detail section all it says is ready when you are, and the forward tap is unselectable.
Why i cant change from 800x480 to 1024x600, that this model of EEE pc doesnt support anything higher than 800x480 at the 10:1 ratio...
Firstly my question is, is it ACTUALLY possible to 'overclock' this type of netbook to run a higher res?
Im running ubtuntu netbook remix 10.04 and am new to linux (again, so sorry) so be nice, and ive tried getting my head around this 'sudo' stuff, and the xorg.conf file (which is nowhere to be found) and ive even tried a program calld astray but im pretty sure ive exhausted my patience as trying to self-teach . . .
And ive also tried to much around with xrandr or whatever that command was.. but i cant really get my head around it, and it kept telling me the resolution didnt exist ect...
For the past 2hrs I have been struggling to make KDE launch plasma-dekstop instead of plasma-netbook, but all in vain.I removed, then purged plasma-netbook and plasma-netbook-default-settings packages but after logging out and re-logging in the Netbook UI was back! After restarting the system now I can't even seem to get the KDM. I am greeted with a black screen.--- I restarted the system again and the nasty little bugger is back again! This is so frustrating. How do I get plasma-desktop to load instead?---- Great now I can see that plasma-desktop and plasma-netbook both are running simultaneously! netbook on top of desktop. So my final Q is how do I stop plasma-netbook from loading?
I'm just coming back to Ubuntu after last seeing a GNOME desktop almost a year ago now. Just installed the new 10.04 version on my EEE 1000h with little to no problems. However, since then I've been kinda lost. Is it just me, or has Ubuntu been changed substantially over the last two distributions?
1) How do I change the netbook remix desktop mode? I like the left menu design, however I like the traditional desktop even more. Unfortunately I can't seem to find the desktop mode switcher anywhere.
2) Where is the grub menu.lst found? Looked in the /boot/grub/ folder and it doesn't seem to be there anymore.
3) Where's my multi touch? Do I have to install a package or configure a setting somewhere? With Jaunty it was a simple install and play. This time it doesn't seem that way at all.
I have this mac mini laying around. It runs leopard fairly okay. I was wondering if it would be able to run Ubuntu netbook remix. I figure it would run fine, I'm not exactly sure though. I just want to get it running so my brother has a computer to use.
I know this is a long shot, BUT Is there any way to implement the Netbook Remix 10.04 GUI into Windows 7? As in basically making Windows 7 look and act like the GUI in Remix. I love the GUI, and if it's impossible, I'll just suck it up and dual boot, the 30 gb Win7/XP partition is bugging the crap out of me. Just wondering if there was something out there that made this thing possible.
And for the record, I'd switch back to full linux when my card is supported in october =P
i recently installed ubunto netbbook remix on my laptop and am completely new to the ubuntu experiencei have a problem with the netbook edition: it turns on fine and everything but when i scroll over the bar on the side, where it has the applicaitons like mozilla, ubuntu software center, etc,the screen blacks out for 1-2 seconds and i am therefore unable to utilize the buttons on that taskbari have no idea whats going on because the desktop edition works perfectly finecan anybody tell me whats going on and how i should fix it?
I tried for at least 4 hours last night and I could not get Ubuntu to install on my Acer Netbook. I used a 4GB Sandisk pendrive and changed the BIOS so the netbook booted from the pendrive, but all it did then was go to a black screen with white letters across the top saying Syslinx and a bunch of info kinda like copyright info.
I have tried several times installing ubuntu netbook remix on my netbook and have followed guides step by step but it dosn't work (screen goes black, flashing hyphen). Only thing i might be doing wrong is using an external 320gb hdd that i had previously formated to fat32 instead of a usb pendrive. Is this the problem, note i dont have a pendrive large enough.
i was in the process of trying to put the latest version of netbook remix on a flash drive (2gb Kingston), but failed mid-process. I had forgotten to format to FAT32, and thus ran into problems in the middle. I'm now left with a flash drive that is partially written to, and completely write-protected. And I can't get rid of anything on the flash drive. Nothing I've tried (Killdisk, re-formatting, MS-DOS) has helped me erase the flash drive permanently (every time I try Windows returns the message that the device is write-protected). Neither can I re-run the USB installer, which I downloaded from the pendrivelinux folk.
Either in erasing my flash drive completely, and starting again -- or in re-doing the making of this flashdrive into a boot disk for the netbook remix version of ubuntu.
is this ok to install and would any graphics run ok or could i switch them off so it would run smooth. is there a way to upgrade to 9.10 and netbook remix can i order a free ubuntu netbook remix cd? i am using a laptop not a netbook i want netbook remix as it looks and is very clean and simple and would be a really nice change from the boring gnome theme no offence. finally can you turn it off just if you need to use a normal gnome desktop.
I've been using Ubuntu for a few months on my HP Mini. Windows has been destroyed, but now I want to use some of the programs from windows. Is there anyway to get a virtual windows or dual boot without a disc drive?
I'd like to try Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 on my 12" G4 Powerbook, but I can't seem to find it. Does it just not exist? Apple have a range of older 12" models that are no longer supported that Ubuntu would work great on.
