Ubuntu :: Chromium Caused UNR 10.04 Freeze

Sep 22, 2010

I would like to report my experience while using UNR 10.04.

Everytime I connect my Nokia handphone either as a mass storage mode (for transfering video/image) OR using my handphone as a 3.5G Modem.

While connected or even after I finished connecting my handphone for the above purposes, when I close down Chromium browser, the whole OS will freeze!! Neither keyboard or mouse would work. This thing does not happened if I'm using Firefox for browsing internet.

I have to do a hard restart to use my netbook again.

6.0.472.53 (57914) Ubuntu 10.04

UNR 10.04: with updated software packages

HP Mini 110-1006TU
Standard specification with 2GB RAM.

Ubuntu :: Chromium Application Shortcuts In Unity - Not Including Most Of Chromium's Toolbars

May 2, 2011

I often use the option in Chromium to create 'application shortcuts'. These are instances of Chromium that make a website look more like an app by not including most of Chromium's toolbars. I use it for gmail and google docs and spreadsheets and calendar. In 11.04 I have set up Desktop launchers and copied them across to the Launcher (what an odd way to add something to the launcher, why no right-click 'add launcher' option?)

The problem is that the launcher thinks all these apps are chromium (which they are really, but I would like them to be seen as separate apps). If I minimize my gmail window, a little triangle appears next to the chromium icon, not the gmail icon. To get the window back, I have to click on the Chromium icon. Clicking on the gmail icon launches a new instance of it (also tied to the Chromium icon).

Ubuntu Networking :: Run Chromium With -enable-gpu-rendering Flag Chromium's Display Looks Like It's Shattered Into Thousands Of Pieces

Dec 2, 2010

if i run chromium with --enable-gpu-rendering flag chromium's display looks like it's shattered into thousands of pieces and I can't understand a thing. This doesn't happens if I have a previous instance of chromium opened in the usual way, without any flag. In this case if I open another chromium window with the --enable-gpu-rendering flag it's display looks ok, but I can't figure out what's the problem and how could this be fixed if there's solution for it of course.

Ubuntu :: AWN Grouping Chromium Shortcuts Under Chromium

Oct 22, 2010

I made a shortcut with chromium browser to listen.grooveshark.com. This is great as it's almost like the grooveshark VIP desktop application like this. However AWN dock groups it with other chromium windows like this:Kuvakaappaus.jpg

Is it possible to force AWN to group this specific chromium window under the Grooveshark launcher that I have in the dock? Turning off grouping does not solve this either, as it just shows grooveshark as another chromium window.

Ubuntu :: Pyton Segemenation Fault Caused By Libselinux1

Mar 11, 2010

I have been trying to run python programs that use clutter in Ubuntu, but all programs end with a segmentation fault. I have traced this to a bug in linselinux1 (see:URL... I am using Jaunty, and can't seem to update to a newer version of libselinux1 which has the bug fixed because all the newer versions seem to be for Karmic of Lucid. The bug report mentions a fix, but it seems a bit to complex and confusing for me. Can anyone explain how to fix this? I'm doing a course in Python, and I really need this to work.

CentOS 5 :: Distinguish Between What Caused A Shutdown?

May 8, 2010

I am running a server at home, and on rare occasion my server will shut down. Is there a logfile I can check to determine whether the server was shutdown due to a script on the computer, a power loss, or someone hitting the power button? I am not by any means a linux guru, but I know enough to get around.

Ubuntu :: Excessive (15min+) Boot Time Caused By Dmraid?

Jan 3, 2010

I have a truecrypt partition on an nvidia fakeraid raid0.ore there is no data recognizeable to ubuntu's kernel on startup and I think it is causing a big slowdown for me every time I boot up, which takes over ten minutes every time. Attached are bootchart results.What I would like to do is know how to remove dmraid from the startup process. I can't find any scripts in /etc/rc*.d and all of the information I can find on these forums is about how to enable dmraid on boot, not disable it.

Manually using dmraid takes nearly no time at all, which is what I did before this kernel upgrade since ubuntu didn't put dmraid in the startup process. I can't see why it takes dmraid ten minutes to detect raid devices now! The only clue I can see is that in the startup process with the splash screen disabled it talks about examining inodes on both drives in the array and then goes on to spit out stuff about raid 0, raid1, raid2, raid3, raid4 and on and on so it seems like it is loading raid arrays that don't exist and never have.If any bootchart gurus have any advice, please feel free to throw me a bone, I am in fear of restarting!edit: for some reason ubuntuforums shrank my images so that they are unreadable by anybody except those with a large projector.

Ubuntu Networking :: Constant Hash Sum Mismatches On Download Caused By ISP?

Jan 16, 2010

I read somewhere that ISPs can cache files and that this will cause a hash sum mismatch when you try to open the file.

I have been trying to install scourge, and whether I go through the playdeb route, or compile by source route, in both cases the file is corrupt. With playdeb, the data folder has a hash sum mismatch. When I try and compile by source, the tarball can't extract (I'm thinking for the same reason).

If my ISP is causing this, how would I stop it, short of connecting to another network?

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba No Longer Working - Caused By Update?

Mar 3, 2010

I think an update or something has killed Samba on my Karmic box. it can see Windows shares OK, but it no longer appears on the Windows network.I have not changed my smb.conf for months, so something else has been modified.Looking in the logs I can see the following in "log.winbindd-idmap" after restarting Samba


[2010/03/03 10:07:20, 0] winbindd/idmap.c:201(smb_register_idmap_alloc)
idmap_alloc module tdb already registered!
[2010/03/03 10:07:20, 0] winbindd/idmap.c:149(smb_register_idmap)


All other networking seems fine (internet, Synergy+ etc) it's just sharing out to the Windows network that is broken.

Ubuntu Servers :: Error: Software Caused Connection Abort

May 1, 2010

I'm at the end of my rope here, and am extremely frustrated. I have a web server running on Ubuntu Server and am using OpenSSH for all my SSH and sftp needs. However, I have the strangest of all situations that I cannot for the life of me figure out.

I have a user chrooted to /var/www/username in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and in /etc/passwd. When the user is chrooted to that folder, whenever I try to log in through SFTP using any client, I get an error saying "Network error: Software caused connection abort." The kicker is, when I chroot the user to /var/www that user can log in just fine. I've tried changing every chmod and chown setting I can think of, and I have NO idea why it matters by one folder.

I had the jail working perfectly for about 2 hours, when it seemingly just decided to stop.What's really getting to me is why the two folders, which have the exact same settings, are not operating the same way.

Ubuntu :: Start Live Timing Caused Firefox To Become Unresponsive?

May 9, 2010

Running a clean install of Lucid 64, I have a problem with the Firefox Java plugin with the "Live Timing" feature of the www,formula1.com site. Live Timing is an applet they provide that displays sector and lap time information for races, practice and qualifying sessions. It was working fine under Karmic 32 but no luck so far with Lucid 64.

Initially trying to start Live Timing caused Firefox to become unresponsive, I saw that the Java plugin being used was the IcedTea one, which I have heard can be a bit flakey. (Not sure what I was using under Karmic BTW).

I notice that the Sun proprietary Java stuff is installed - I presume when I installed ubuntu-restricted-extras. So I disabled the IcedTea plugin in Firefox and tried to use the Sun Java Moz plugin by creating a symlink to



Firefox then lists the Sun proprietary plugin under addons - plugins but it doesn't actually seem to do anything, as I just get an empty Window with the Live Timing Applet.

Ubuntu :: Update Caused Icons And Appearance To Change Drastically

Aug 4, 2011

I just updated a bunch of things on my system (10.10 x86_64) via synaptic and when I rebooted to finish the update everything looks horrible. All the Icons are different, taskbar is all gray, compiz is acting funny, and the top bar has different icons and coloring. I'm wondering what happened and how I can fix this... I'm guessing it might be the nvidia update, but I'm not sure, here is what I did for the update/install:

Upgraded the following packages:

libsmbclient (2:3.5.4~dfsg-1ubuntu8.4) to 2:3.5.4~dfsg-1ubuntu8.5
libwbclient0 (2:3.5.4~dfsg-1ubuntu8.4) to 2:3.5.4~dfsg-1ubuntu8.5
linux-headers-2.6.35-30 (2.6.35-30.54) to 2.6.35-30.56


The only other thing I changed was to turn off the auto-login so I wouldn't have that damn keyring password dialog pop up during login.

Should I try downgrading the NVIDIA package update or look through any particular logs to see what happened?

Server :: XEN Machine Hung Sometimes Caused By Java?

Jul 23, 2010

I have several xen virtual machines but the issue is occurring only on the one of them. Sometimes (4 times per month) the server hung. I can ping this server on the network but I am not able to login to server using local console or ssh session.


I sounds like the issue is caused by some Java application. But I am not sure is this message is related to root cause or the Java is impacted as a result of issue.

Could you help me with this? I need more details regarding error message described below and I also need to identify the root cause and resolve the issue. Is there any way how to determine which Java application is causing this issue?

CentOS 5 :: Upgrade Caused Reboot Failure?

I am now trying the rescue feature of my install CD. I will report on this later.

As for the always possible hardware failure, I have a raid setup, so I was not expecting this.

OpenSUSE :: Weird KDE Desktop Effects Caused By Down Arrow Key

Sep 6, 2011

I have a logitech coreless keyboard that has always "just worked" and I've lived without programming any keys, no factory. no tumbleweed, recent fresh re-install of 11.4, updated generally and with kde 4.6.5, xorg 7.6, nvidia driver 275.21 Mysteriously, the down arrow key no longer works as it should, (up, left, right are fine)

Rather it has the effect of crashing the transparent task manager and adjusting the focus of open windows. If I repeatedly hit the down arrow key the focus toggles and then transparency is re-enabled. The best way I can describe the effect is that it is as if I were using [tab] to toggle through a text based menu (e.g., YaST launch in terminal mode)
