Ubuntu :: Duplicate Entries In System -> Administration Menu

Nov 22, 2010

I just upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10. I originally had installed the nvidia drivers using the bash script from nvidia's website. This time around I used the ones from synaptic. However now when I go and look in System -> Administration there are 2 entries for "NVIDIA X Server Settings". The first one has the NVIDIA logo, the other one has a grey question mark. Does anyone know why there are 2 entries and how I can remove one of them?

CentOS 5 :: System/administration Menu Has 2x 'hardware' Entries

Mar 29, 2009

simple installs of CentOS5.2 i386 on 2x Dell C640's and x86-64 on a Dell dimension 9150 resulted in the System/Administration menu offering two entries each with the name 'hardware' and the icon showing a little chip hovering over a PC. I did "add this launcher to panel" on both as an easy way of checking their properties:

The higher entry issues the command 'hwbrowser'
The lower entry issues the command 'hal-device-manager'

Both have the comment "view information on the hardware on this computer". I feel the hal-device-manager entry has the wrong name, comment, and icon. I think /etc/xdg/menus/system-settings.menu is relevant.

Ubuntu :: Grub 2 Menu - Duplicate Entries

Dec 5, 2010

For the past few weeks I have been using the lastest Ubuntu OS. The following menu pops-up during the boot process.

GNU GRUB version 1.98+20100804-5ubuntu3
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae (recovery mode)
Memory test (mentest86+)
Memory test (mentest86+, serial console 115200)
Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sdb1)

Just recently the menu displays duplicate entries. The first two entries are repeated (see below). What might have caused these duplicate entries to appear and how to correct them? Before this problem occurred I did not issue any sudo commands.

GNU GRUB version 1.98+20100804-5ubuntu3
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae (recovery mode)
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae

Ubuntu :: Duplicate Entries In Places Menu?

Apr 2, 2011

I see this posted in several places in the past but no answers. If I use UUID in fstab to mount additional partitions I get duplicate entries for the partitions in the Places Menu. I can solve the problem by mounting the partitions by Label ( /dev/sdb2 /mountpoint ) but half of the time grub2 will not mount the drive correctly using this method and will change the volume ID (sdb2 becomes sdf2) .

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Add Item To System > Administration Menu

Jun 20, 2010

I just upgraded my Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.04. Part of the Ubuntu 9.10 installation was GParted (version 0.4.5) and I saw, after upgrading to Ubutnu 10.04, there was a more recent version available: 0.5.1.

After installing that version, GParted was still part of the System > Administration menu (just as it was before).

But then I saw the version 0.6.0 of GParted was recently released and there was also a .deb distro available.

After downloading and installing the 0.6.0 version of GParted, the item GParted disappeared from the System > Administration menu and appeared in another menu (Applications > System Tools).

My question: how can I get GParted back as part of the Systems > Administrations menu?

Ubuntu :: System->Administration->Printing , Menu Missing?

Sep 15, 2010

Well like the title Implies, In my Administration menu in Gnome I don't have a "Printing" option. So I can't search for/install printers right now.I'm running 10.04 Server. I installed the gnome-desktop-environment package to get a GUI up and running for manipulating the filesystem, But not all the menu's I was expecting appeared. Is this because I used the gnome-desktop-environment instead of the ubuntu-desktop-environment package? ecause I have two PC's setup next to each other. One using the ubuntu-desktop-environment, and one using the gnome-desktop-environment package and the two desktops are clearly different.All I want to know is how to add the Printers menu to my PC running the gnome-desktop-environment package. I already looked at gconf-editor and the printing menu isn't hidden or anything, it's just not there. And me being a new user to Linux, I don't know how else to get to those printer abilities without the GUI

Debian :: System Administration Menu - Just Get Login Screen

Jul 11, 2011

I've just started using Debian having previously used Ubuntu. With Ubuntu, under the System->Administration menu I get lots of options (e.g. Network Tools, Printing, Services...) to select from, but with Debian I just get Login Screen. Do I just get the one option because this is the only thing installed, or do I need to do something to enable other admin options?

Ubuntu :: Duplicate Source Entries In Karmic?

Mar 23, 2010

I used to be able to resolve this problem by simply opening my sources.list file and doing a search and delete, but now Ubuntu appears to have two completely different methods of handling sources. What is is the simple solution? I would really like to have everything all in one place.

W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://ppa.launchpad.net karmic/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/ppa.launchpad.net_sunab_ppa_ubuntu_dists_karmic_main_binary-i386_Packages)
W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://ppa.launchpad.net karmic/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/ppa.launchpad.net_mozillateam_firefox-stable_ubuntu_dists_karmic_main_binary-i386_Packages)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

Ubuntu :: Duplicate Grub Entries For Windows 7?

Oct 12, 2010

To start by saying that I am brand new to anything linux. I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit to dual boot on my Windows 7 32-bit PC. This last time that I booted my pc the grub looked like this:

Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.32-25-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.32-25-generic (recovery mode)
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.32-24-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.32-24-generic (recovery mode)
Windows 7 (loader) (on/dev/sda1)
Windows 7 (loader) (on/dev/sda2)

From what I understand the duplicate for Ubuntu is just an updated Kernal, hence the -24 to -25. What I didn't understand is why there is a duplicate for Windows 7 and what the sda1 and sda2 is? Someone please explain. When I first installed Ubuntu, there was only one listing for Ubuntu and one for Windows 7.

Also, I was wondering what you do to keep up with new kernals and remove old one's. How do you keep the Kernals from piling up? I assume that when another Kernal becomes available, there will then be 3 Ubuntu listings in the grub. One last thing is I would like some suggestions for the best way of going about learning linux. (i.e. terminal commands)

Programming :: Remove Duplicate Entries On A Row?

Nov 1, 2010

we have a variable LIBS:

LIBS='-lpq -lmysqlclient -lssl -lpthread -lresolv -lssl -lpthread -lresolv'

I'd want to get:

LIBS='-lpq -lmysqlclient -lssl -lpthread -lresolv'

Bear in mind that LIBS can be variable, I mean I need to drop any duplicate and only retain the last one of each different entry. And we must keep the order as is, I must not sort out them.

So, if LIBS is:

LIBS='-lpq -lmysqlclient -lpthread -lresolv -lpthread -lresolv'

I need: LIBS='-lpq -lmysqlclient -lpthread -lresolv'

Ubuntu :: Remove Duplicate Entries From "Open With"

Dec 14, 2010

Theres two main things im trying to remove. First, Wine which I need to keep, has about 15 different entries which I want to remove. Second I installed OpenMPT, a music tracking program through Wine. This added about 10 duplicate open with entries.. I uninstalled OpenMPT, because I decided I didnt want it, but all the entries remain.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Entries In Menu After Upgrade

Sep 19, 2010

I know someone posted a sim. query back in 2008, but I'm know getting the same issue in Lucid. I installed the latest updates last night and when I rebooted I found I had what looks like multiple copies of the same kernel entry in the Menu.lst. I've included my file for review. Sorting this out. Otherwise I reckon Lucid is rock solid. I do tend to leave a lot of default entries in commented out. Will this make my boot slower at all?

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Menu Keeps Showing Nonexistent OS Entries / Get Rid Of These?

Jan 24, 2010

When I originally installed Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit, I had the following operating systems already installed:

Kubuntu 9.04
Windows 7
Windows XP

Ubuntu automagically created a GRUB2 menu that offered all of these, plus of course itself, which was fine for a while.

Later on, I deleted and reformatted the partitions that had been dedicated to Kubuntu 9.04. GRUB2 has failed to keep up. Despite running "sudo update-grub" multiple times, the GRUB2 menu continues to show entries for Kubuntu 9.04.

How do I get rid of these obsolete entries? The partitions it was on simply do not exist any longer, so I don't know how GRUB2 is picking it up.

I had already edited my fstab file to reflect the new partitioning scheme, so I don't know where GRUB2 is getting the idea that I still have Kubuntu 9.04 installed.
