Ubuntu Installation :: Difference Between Installing 9.10 With Upgrade To 10.4 And Clean 10.4 Install

Apr 4, 2010

1. I want to revert back to Ubuntu (I currently am running Dual Slackware/Vista). However, given that at the end of this month 10.4 will be out, is there much advantage to installing 9.10 now and upgrading later?

2. Another way to ask this might be: Suppose you already had 9.10 (which many of you do), and suppose you also have a safe /home (so that in a fresh install you wont loose /home), what is the advantage of a fresh install as compared to Upgrade.

What's the difference between apt-get and aptitude? Could I use either to effectively update my system? (ie. do "apt-get update" and "aptitude update" do the same thing?)

Ubuntu :: How To Clean Out The System

May 13, 2010

I've had ubuntu installed on this computer, and I've updated it all the way up to Lucid from Dapper over the years. I'd like to clean out settings and old programs that might not be needed anymore to make it more like a fresh install, as I've noticed some problems that people with fresh installs don't seem to have.

Ubuntu :: Getting A Clean Reinstall Through Apt-get

Aug 11, 2010

I'm trying to get Samba running, but I accidentally deleted smb.conf. I tried reinstalling Samba through apt-get, but it does not create another smb.conf (which it did when I first installed it). I'm pretty new to ubuntu, and I'm just wondering if anybody knows how to get a completely clean install.

Ubuntu :: How To Keep TMP Partition Clean

Aug 28, 2010

I have used SUse some time now, and I return now to Ubuntu. In Yast cron jobs can be edited easily in order to keep the tmp-partition clean. I would like to do the same in ubuntu, as I know a full tmp partition prevents the system from booting. So, how to do it? I have tmpreaper installed, but this soft is not as handy as Yast. Tmpreaper.conf can indeed be edited, but I have no idea how. It is always "read only".

Ubuntu :: How Do I 'clean' Folder So I Can Use It Again

Jul 10, 2011

I've been using my 2TB external hard drive with Ubuntu with no problems for a while now, but recently there is one folder on the drive that I cannot access. Whenever I try to open the folder I get "error stating file: Input/output error". I scoured the forums and noticed that the folder might just be dirty because I failed to use the Windows option to "safely unplug" the drive (bolstered by the fact that neither avast! or Malwarebites found anything). My question is how do I "clean" the folder so I can use it again?

Ubuntu :: How To Make Clean Uninstall

Jan 3, 2010

I need to change the language used by Ubuntu 8.10 (updated to 9.04) from English to Spanish. This does not refer to the keybord distribution. What must I do?Alternatively, I could remove Ubuntu so as to start from scratch again with a 9.10 CD. But I don't know how to make a clean uninstall. The 80 GB HD contains as well windows XP and boots with Grub. Originally the present Ubuntu was installed to an unallocated space left on purpose to receive Linux. Ideally this space ought to return to that condition to be able to receive the new installation.

Ubuntu :: How To Find And Clean Old Symlinks?

Mar 2, 2010

I recently tried the package "pysdm" to mount a data partition but didn't care for the way it handled things so I opted for editing fstab which I'm much more satisfied with.I did then purge pysdem and it's config files but something lingered, finally I got things working by using a UUID designation in fstab but I know there's an old symlink to a /dev/sdb7 that has since been deleted and later recreated with a new UUID.

I have "googled" enough to find that the package "fslint" should be able to handle this but since one gui got me in trouble I'm reluctant to use another, I'd prefer just being able to find where symlinks live and ripping them out by the short hairs

Ubuntu :: Way To Clean Up Windows Without Going To Extremes?

Mar 9, 2010

My Ubuntu partition is just about out of memory, and I need to do some cleaning of the windows.I couldn't find a lot on here (maybe I wasn't using the right terms), and when I looked on google it seemed like the only results I found were from people that wanted to remove linux from windows.What I'd like to do is create a very, very small partition for windows for when I need it (burning MP3s to CDA and my printer only).I wouldn't mind re-installing windows and starting from scratch (I have all my software backed up) and then installing Ubuntu a backed up version of Ubuntu. Except I can't get Clonezilla to install for the life of me after several attempts.So is their any (hopefully easy) way to clean up windows without going to extremes?

Ubuntu :: Doesn't Alacarte Clean Up?

Apr 12, 2010

Ever since I first discovered alacarte (gnome menu editor) I have been creating lots of menus and submenus for gnome menu so I can always find what I want. To avoid having to redo them, whenever I try another gnome based distro or do a fresh install I always copy ~/.local/share/desktop-directories and applications (and a couple of other files, I forget right now) so I can use the same menus in those.

Well, I don't use these custom menus so much lately so have gone for a much simpler solution of creating a "Favourites" submenu and just adding apps I use a lot. It was while rummaging around .local today I noticed there are hundreds of left over files from long since deleted custom menus (like 18 months+) that I have been copying from one distro to another all this time. Why on earth doesn't alacarte delete all these deleted menus and applications files?

I just did a little experiment: I deleted everything out of these folders so I was basically left with the stock gnome menu with no customizations. I then added a new submenu and then added 3 random apps to to it. I then went and deleted two of those apps and when I went to check, sure enough ~/.local/share/applications contained the 3 files instead of one.

Ubuntu :: How To Clean Reinstall Of Chromium

Apr 26, 2010

I uninstalled Chromium including config files through synaptic, but then after doing a file search, I found lots of Chromium and Chrome files laying around. So then I used that search list to delete them, but I believe there are still Chromium/Chrome files somewhere on my Ubuntu 9.10.To regress a bit and for a little background on this problem, I wanted to uninstall Chromium because I want to see if I can correct this problem that I have with the browsing history file. I want the browse history feature to work and it doesn't - the archive has all of the activity from only one day in history, 8 Apr 2010, and when I try to delete that day of history, it says that is has been deleted, but it is still there, and it won't record any of my browse history.

So I thought if I could do a clean install from scratch, maybe I could get the history feature back.Anybody know where I can find the file containing the history files and/or tell me how to clean reinstall of Chromium?

Ubuntu :: Any Way To Clean Up Trash (Packages)

May 8, 2010

I downloaded and installed k3b from the software center and remember seeing that after it was installed, an additional 180MB would be taken up. so the installation process took about 2-3 minutes after unpackaging or whatever it does. But when I went to uninstall it, it took like 2 seconds. Is there a way to clean up packages that hasn't been uninstalled all the way or haven't been used? Is that normal?

Ubuntu :: Boot Screen Clean Up?

May 24, 2010

This is kind of a odd request but I figured I would ask before just poking around and messing something up!

I use Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7. I have 80 gigs of my HD dedicated to ubuntu the rest of my 500 gig HD to Windows . Heres my issue when the initial boot screen comes up asking me what OS I want to use. Theres like 4 versions of Ubuntu and then the Windows selection. I was wondering if theres a easy way to go in and clean it up so only the most recent Kernel update is showing, it's recovery mode option, and then Windows?

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Clean Up And Duplication?

Nov 11, 2010

this is my first post here .I have two issues related to grub2 I upgraded recently from ubuntu 8 to 10.04 and upgraded grub 0.98 to 1.98. 1-How to prevent Grub from detecting one of Windows installations? or how does grub detect Windows. I have 2 hdds, they were backup of each other. but no more, I deleted one Windows by deleting most of the files so therefore I don't need it to be present in Grub 2 menu. How do I delete this? any suggestion? 2-For some reason grub2 only work correctly from sdb , even though I chose to install grub2 to sda too, but it seems grub is trying to find grub files on the same hard disk instead of on sdb, therefore it goes into grub rescue mode with error "file not found" . I set my computer to boot from sdb for now. but I would like to learn how to make sda's grub work. before it used to work with grub 0.98.

Ubuntu :: Error - Filesystem Is Not Clean

Nov 28, 2010

I went away for a few days but left my computer on to seed torrents. I come back today to find that my flatmate decided to have a tidy up, unplugging my computer and external HDD in the process...I set my computer back up but now my external drive is refusing to mount. This drive has EVERYTHING on it - about 5 years worth of music & video d/ls plus a lot of important documents so I'm praying that it isn't wrecked.That I know of, the drive was mounted but not in use when the power was pulled. The disk utility recognises its there and SMART-healthy, but claims "Filesystem is NOT clean" and won't mount it.

Ubuntu :: File System Is Not Clean?

Dec 14, 2010

I have a 500 GB external USB hard drive that I use for putting images and backup data into.I had some problems with it not automounting today, and in trying to access the drive I got errors indicating that an operation was already in progress. Eventually it mounted on it's own, but I unmounted it and ran "Check Filesystem" from the Disk Utility program on the drive, just to be sure. After a while, it finished and told me that the file system was "NOT clean".So, what does that mean, and how do I fix it? Before I unmounted it, I was able to navigate the mounted filesystem, so it doesn't appear totally hosed.
