I certainly do not want to install Elementary OS, and just want a similar interface. I already installed docky, but Unity gets in the way. Is there a way I can disable that? Also, can I hide the docky application icon on Docky? Or is there a better way to do this?
this string of commands pops up when i try to boot up linux in any mode.fsck from util-linux-ng 2.16/dev/sda5:clean, 207703/1966080 files, 1500210/7859793 blocks (check in 2 mounts)i have no idea about computer stuff so
I just updated my netbook remix 9.10 to 10.04 and every time I boot up it freezes as soon as the login screen pops up. Before this said screen pops up I have the ability to move the cursor around freely, and if I mash the life out of enter I can get it to select my username, but freezes before the password entry bar has the chance to come up under it.
I've tried iok, cellwriter (a cracker) and a few others but what annoys me is that I can't seem to find a way to get them to vanish and only pop up when a text entry box is clicked into (wii web browser stylee). Is it possible, or am I barking up the wrong tree?
I just installed Ubuntu (10.10) via USB. Installation went perfectly, and then I installed videocard drivers. I restarded and from then when I boot, some kind of command line pops up and wants me to login from there. I did, and ive also looked at this thread: [URL] and tried to restart GNOME but didnt work
I finally got it and windows 7 installed on separate hard drives. Windows installed first, then ubuntu 10.04.01. Had to use the alternate ubuntu install cd to make it work. During the install it said there were no other operating systems installed on the computer and asked if grub could overwrite the master boor record. I knew this was something I wanted to do and if it was wrong it could most likely be fixed later. So that being said, ubuntu has taken over the boot of my pc. No grub menu pops up. Not sure how to add windows to grub to make it give me a choice. I did try pressing shift during startup to get grub to load, and nothing happened.
Here is my fdisk. Windows is on sda and ubuntu is on sdb.

I built a new pc with an intel atom processor and 1Gb Ddr2 ram with on board sound and graphics. When i try to intal or boot live (from flash drive) The screen pops up asking boot or instal. Whether i choose either/or i recieve an error on my monitor saying input not supported. I got a similar error when i tried an older monitor. My current monitor is an aoc lcd screen (not sure of model no.)
After I open the dvd rom tray either via ubuntu or by the eject button, it closes automatically. I have two dvd drives insalled, but only one has this problem. It's been a month that this problem started occurring, but it's not a hardware problem since both drives work fine in windows.
I'm using Ubuntu 6.06 and Apache.I connect to the machine via FTP. It seems as if the connection times out every few seconds. If I u/l a file it will take 15 seconds to connect. Once that connection is open I can u/l more files instantly. If I wait a few seconds it closes, then I have to wait another 15 seconds for it to reopen. Any ideas how to make it not time out so frequently?
I am running F12 on a lenovo X61. 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03) If my machine is quiet for a while, then suddenly needs to make a noise (eg some sort of notification event), the audio "pops" when the first sound is made. It sounds like the noise you hear in the speakers when the audio cable is connected to a live jack while the speakers are on. A static POP.
Once that initial pop is over, the audio sounds exactly like I expect it to.Then, if there is no sound for a period of about 10 seconds, I can hear the audio pop again. If I then play a sound, I will hear the initial static pop again.It's as if pulseaudio is powering up my audio system when it needs it, then powers it down when it doesn't need it any more.And, in fact, I found that something is going in in the kernel. If I look at lsmod, I can see things changing.I did an lsmod with the sound "on", then waited for it to pop off, then did it again and noticed these diffs:
I was going fine yesterday and today I logged on and it seems as if my packets are being bundled up and sent at once, because websites spend ages loading, then all load together at the same time, my IRC lag bar increases and increases then pops back to 0 around the same time the web finished loading.
After a lot of headache and time I was finally able to get Ubuntu 11.04 64bit installed along side my Windows 7 64bit installation. The whole process was hindered by the screen resolution being really off, looked like this LINK (aspect ratio of (16:10) I believe it was). After much fiddling i was able to get the installation started hoping that in the end it would let me set the res. correctly once it was installed. About 75% of the way done it threw an error saying there was either a problem with the HDD or the CD, I know my HDD is fine, so I booted up windows and set up my USB thumb drive as the installation device, Unbootable.
My next attempt i hooked the laptop to my internet via cable and started the installation again, this time i found that I could set the res of the LiveCD (which was a pain in the neck) and this time Ubuntu installed and upgraded and seemed all sorts of happy! Once the PC rebooted and i selected to boot into Ubuntu, the(what i suppose is) login screen pops up but the resolution is messed up again and this time I can't navigate at all. I've tried just typing in my password and hitting enter as i can see that it is by default selecting my user name to login with.
I am just looking for a simple program, nothing overly complex with crazy features. Just something that pops up above any browser/window and remains that way until you click it or something. The pop up would occur periodically or at sometime each day. It would say something like "TAKE A BREAK FROM COMPUTER" lol and other things. not suppose to be some full reminder program like a calendar.
If I copy and then paste some html text from a web page as I have been doing for a study course, then Openoffice Writer closes. When I go to open Openoffice again it asks if I want to run a recovery, I opt for that and it gets me back into the file (which is empty).I have tried saving the file in html format but, the same thing happens.I can paste into Tomboy without problem so it must be the Openoffice program.Maybe I should simply hop over to Sun Microsystems with this, mmm.
I updated my Rhythmbox to 0.13 and now when I open rhythmbox or Banshee they close automatically after finish a song! but when I opened rhythmbox with Terminal (no root) it worked well and didn't close anymore!
While using my laptop, (touchpad) if I click on a link in a web page, sometimes it will open in a new tab, other times it will not. I would prefer it to never open in a new tab unless I ask it to. BUT, the really annoying thing is that when I click on the tab that appears, it just closes. I think this is a bug because sometimes the tab says something about java with some strange characters mixed with it.
I really can't say what I did that may have triggered this problem. I've been trying to setup remote access through SSH but that's about it. Haven't changed any settings in a bit though. I downloaded Konsole and it closes immediately as well.
Banshee only recently started doing this: When I play an song it works fine but if I click on skip it plays the next song for about 1-2 seconds then Banshee just closes. Also if I just let the song play (or skip to the end of the song) it also closes within 1-2 seconds of playing the next song. If I'm half way through a song I can click on another song to play it and it works fine through.I've tried disabling all my extensions but that didn't make any difference.
If I launch Banshee by typing 'banshee' into Terminal (and then play a song and press the skip button) this is what the Terminal says:
I recently installed the newest version of Songbird, it worked for two days. Now when I click Songbird, it tells me it's starting down in the Window List, but it never pops up. I've tried all three methods from here to install it afterwards... none of them I got to work. Anyone have a clue what could possibly going on? This is on Ubuntu 9.10(32bit)
I'm having problem getting my Edimax EW-7711UTn to work (I'm stuck with using the ethernet cable for now). The light flashes on it and it picks up wireless networks, but when I'm connecting to them, I put in the key, it tries to connect, but the wireless key window pops up again and again and again. I've looked up other threads about this, but none of the suggested methods have worked for me (I've checked to see if it's compatible, apparently it isn't, but people seem to have got it working before...) I'm using a Toshiba Satellite M40 laptop. $lspci:
Morning, just installed lubuntu but having problems connecting to the wireless network. I find the network alright, however, the network authentication windows pops-up only to disappear 0.1 seconds later not giving me time to enter the network-code.
user of Kubuntu 10.0.4. So far, one of the major things I miss is the ability to have my system sleep when I close the lid of my laptop. Any tips on how to enable this behavior? Note: as I said, I'm brand new to linux, so the simpler you can explain things, the better!
