Ubuntu :: GDM Doesn't Start After Upgrade?

May 21, 2010

I just upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04. While it seemed to go fine, GDM won't start. (Instead the Plymouth bootloader just displays the splash screen continuously.) I can get in through a virtual terminal, but starting GDM via the init script does not do anything. I also tried this:

me@host:~$ sudo gdm
ERROR:gdm-settings-direct.c:157:gdm_settings_direct_get_boolean: assertion failed: (entry != NULL)

I tried running sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm, but this did not change anything. Logged in from the virtual terminal I can run startx and get the desktop, but obviously I would like to have the login manager working.

Ubuntu :: Upgrade To 10.04 And On Start Desktop Doesn't Startup

Sep 3, 2010

I recently updated to Ubuntu 10.04. On this same machine I've used Ubuntu for 3 or 4 years now. Upgrading from 8 - 9 - 10. I love Ubuntu and use it as my everyday work environment. Anyway, recently when I start my machine in the morning it boots to commandline instead of the desktop. For the last couple days I boot to safe-mode and do a package repair. Sometimes more than once. Eventually I get the desktop to start but it is annoying. When trying to boot to Fail Safe Graphics Mode(?) I get an error stating: "Fatal Server Error: No Screens." The message referred me to /var/log/Xorg/failsafe.log. Here is a snippet of the end of that log file:


Also, I'm using an NVidia graphics card on an HP machine. I installed the "current version" accelerated graphics driver which it says is proprietary.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Slow - Start Up Time Is 30 Minutes But It Usually Doesn't Start Up At All

May 4, 2011

I did a clean install of Ubuntu 11.04 64bit and the start up time is abnormally slow. If I start up the computer and don't press anything, the start up time is 30 minutes but it usually doesn't start up at all. It just boots into a purple screen, no splash, then it sits there and the computer doesn't have any loading lights flashing.

I had a similar problem with 10.10, but I assumed it would go away when I did a clean install of 11.04.

I can't get a read out of what's going wrong because when I press Esc it doesn't display anything, though weirdly it can sometimes get the start up process moving. I have also found that pressing enter really fast can sometimes help and something that seems completely oxymoronic, if I press the power button while it's starting up that can make it work, but nothing works every time.

CentOS 5 Server :: DHCPD Doesn't Start - How To Make It Start

Sep 2, 2010

I'm configuring a new Centos 5.5 server in replacement of an old W2K server.The topology of our network is simple : one file/dhcp/dns relay server and workstations (PC's and some MAC's) plus network printers and scanners.All the workstations have dynamic IP addresses (easier because a lot of 'dynamic' changes : new persons with their own laptop, ...) and the server and printers/scanners have fixed IP addresses.I edited the dhcpd.conf (see here underneath), I have the file dhcpd.leases but it doesn't start !

Software :: Opera 10.60 Doesn't Know "notrayicon" - Doesn't Start

Jul 4, 2010

The new release of Opera 10.60 doesn't recognize the -notrayicon option anymore. If you had this option in your menu, then Opera doesn't start anymore and dies silently. You won't get an error message, and this error can keep you quite puzzled.

The solution is to remove the -notrayicon option from the menu entry. In opera, go to opera:conf and find the "notrayicon" option and disable it.

Ubuntu :: GUI Doesn't Load After Start-up?

Jan 2, 2010

I've just switched from XP to Ubuntu 9.1 on a relatively old computer (6-9 years?) yesterday, and everything worked like a dream. I've used my computer twice today and nothing seemed to be going wrong...but then came the problem. I haven't toggled with the settings too much since I'm still very new to Ubuntu, but whenever I log in with my password, the GUI doesn't automatically start up. I get the terminal in the right left-hand corner instead, and none of the fixes I've found so far have worked. I usually get some variant of an error message or my hostname doesn't exist.

I've tried:

sudo apt-get install xorg
apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
sudo nano/etc/apt/sources.list

Ubuntu :: Ekiga Doesn't Start / What To Try?

Mar 22, 2010

When I click on the Ekiga menu-item it seems like nothing is happening. So I went into htop and saw the process is running. When I start Ekiga from the command line, nothing happens as well. Then I tried starting Ekiga in debug modus with option -d 5. Still nothing showing up. When I call my VOIP number I can see a call coming in, however there is no ringing sound and no dialogue to pick up the phone.

Then I re-installed by 'aptitude purge ekiga' and then 'aptitude install ekiga'.

I am working on Ubuntu Karmic. The Ekiga version is straight from the repositories: Version: 3.2.5-1ubuntu1.

I hope someone has an idea what to try next.

Ubuntu :: AWN Doesn't Automatically Start?

Apr 30, 2010

I upgraded to 10.04 and my AWN dock won't automatically start even though the 'box' is tic'd and it's showing in the Startup Applications. I did lose all of my configurations as well after upgrading and had to reinstall everything on the dock.

Also, there are little numbers on the launchers like for Trash and Email that tell me how many items are in there. The Trash was easy to remove the numbers by right clicking and choosing the Preferences option. There was a place to disable that but there isn't one for the Email and those little numbers look well.

Ubuntu :: Blender 2.56 Doesn't Want To Start Again?

Apr 11, 2011

This will be my first posting here. Please forgive me for not posting this issue under the right place on the forum. I highly ask to the mod/admins to move this post to the correct location if needed to be, or let it continue as normal. My problem here is with this software blender 2.56a, I'm running Ubuntu 10.10. 64bit This version of blender worked just fine for me since it updated to my computer. But right after finishing an complex render, blender crashed and will not start up again.

Every time I click on the icon it just keeps flashing up and crashing down. So I went to the main blender site, and downloaded one of their stand alone version of the 2.56a. I ran it and it works just fine.

I tried reinstalling blender 2.56a under Synaptic, but no use. I'm out of ideas, I want this software to run like it use to. Again, It use to run without any problems, but just under one hard render it crashed, and Now it wont launch again.

However, I did mange to get my project to render just find under the stand alone. If any one needs some sort of debugging file, or information of some kind. I would then need to know how to re-chieve it..

Ubuntu / Apple :: OSX Doesn't Start Anymore

Feb 1, 2010

I tried to install Ubuntu on a USB HDD on my Macbok Pro 5.3. Everything seemed to be fine, but while rebooting the computer, OSX doesn't start anymore. So, I would say I erased the boot sector of the internal HDD or something similar but I'm not an expert. My internal HDD seems to be fine: One 200 MB FAT32 partiton partition labeled EFI and with the boot flag, One HFS+ partition for the system. I tried to boot with the Snow Leopard DVD and run the Disk Utility to make a "repair". The repair was fine, but the Mac still doesn't boot anymore. (Forget Ubuntu, it's only OSX related, I'll try again Ubuntu only when I'll be able to boot OSX again).

Ubuntu :: Alternative To VNC Doesn't Start Automatically?

Feb 3, 2010

I'm using vnc to connect to my ubuntu box from my windows box however I don't like the way it works.1) It doesn't start automatically. I have to be logged into my username before I can connect to my box.2) It takes control of the screen on my ubuntu box which isn't what I really want to happen. I'm used to connecting via rdp in windows where I connect to the other computer and if you looked at the other screen you wouldn't even know I am logged on.This is handy if someone else is using the pc plus I just don't like everything that I am doing to appear on a computer screen that I can't see. I find it kind of freaky.

Ubuntu :: Window Manager Doesn't Start?

May 2, 2010

I just upgraded Ubuntu from 9.10 to 10.04 and am having a problem with the window manager. When I log in and after it applies my background and the panels load, the window manager doesn't start right away, so if I open a program it won't have a top to it. I have to turn on Compiz, which turns off every time I turn on the computer. If I set it to normal, it searches for drivers and then the tops of windows appear. I have had to do this every time since I upgraded. I would do a clean install, but I have no way to back up my data since I have so much. How can I fix this?

Ubuntu :: X Doesn't Start If No Monitor Plugged

May 11, 2010

The computer is used as a server and I connect remotely on it with VNC. It has no monitor. It was working fine until I upgraded to Lucid. Now, it only works with a basic vesa driver (800x600 max res). The log says:

Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

If I plug a monitor, it work fines. Is there a way to disable monitor detection?

Ubuntu :: Timeoutd Doesn't Start On Boot?

Jan 26, 2011

timeoutd doesn't start on boot.

I have Ubuntu 10.10 with timeoutd-1.5-10.1ubuntu1 installed. It used to work up until a couple of weeks ago. The /etc/rc*.d/S20timeoutd pointers are there, but timeoutd does not show in ps aux|grep timeoutd after a boot. Neither dmesg nor syslog show any sign of an attempted start-up or a failure.

If I manually /etc/init.d/timeoutd start it does run and do it's job. Unfortunately our teenager has discovered that a reboot makes it go away.

Ubuntu :: System Generator Doesn't Start?

Mar 4, 2011

I installed ISE 12.2 DSP edition trail version and I have matlab 2009b edition. After a brief search I found [URL] this. But directory hierarchy is different in 12.2 than that of mentioned in that forum link.

I have installed matlab at /home/trans/Matlab and xilinx at /home/trans/Xilinx. Though I have sysgen_startup.m at /home/trans/Xilinx/ISE_DS/ISE/sysgen/util if I try to run sysgen by using command "./sysgen" I get error as 

ERROR: Could not find SysGen startup script at "/home/trans/Xilinx/ISE/sysgen/util/sysgen_startup.m".
As per the above mentioned link I found sg_config at /home/trans/Xilinx/ISE_DS/ISE/sysgen/bin/lin and used command "./sg_config -install_to_matlab /home/trans/Matlab" I get message like this


I didn't understand the above error. I have chosen matlab workspace as /home/trans/Documents/MATLAB but I haven't pointed anything to that location.

So finally how do I set environmental variables at /home/trans/Xilinx/ISE_DS/ISE and how do I get sysgen to work? I installed ISE from the DVD which I got from xilinx

Ubuntu :: GUI Doesn't Always Start On Startup (Kubuntu)

Mar 13, 2010

A lot of times when I start up my computer, instead of the graphical login screen I'm brought to a CLI login. If I log in and do "startx," it'll start KDE, but sound doesn't work and the shutdown/restart options disappear. (The logout option is still there.) It's inconsistent; sometimes it'll start the GUI and sometimes it won't. I have yet to find out what causes it to work right and what causes it to bring me to the CLI. When it doesn't work, if I run "shutdown -r now" or "shutdown -h now," it'll start the GUI as the computer is shutting down. I've tried Ctrl+Alt+F7 when it's brought me to the CLI, but it didn't do anything

Ubuntu :: X Won't Start After 10.10 Upgrade?

Oct 1, 2010

Upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10, gnome didn't load on reboot, tried typing startx and got this error:

(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/extra-modules/nvidia_drv.so
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) No drivers available.

Fatal server error: no screens found I had the nvidia proprietary driver installed before upgrade. Using a nvidia g-force 7300 graphic card. Anything I can do on my end to fix this? Any easy way to go back to 10.04? Or should I just reinstall 10.04 from the CD-ROM and forget about 10.10 before it's stable?

General :: KDE Doesn't Start Up Anything Else

Dec 30, 2010

I just installed KDE under Arch Linux. Problem is, nothing is starting up right with it - no window manager, no panels, nothing. All I get is a small terminal window in the bottom right corner of the screen, which I'm assuming is konsole. From that single window I can do things like start kwin or launch programs whose names I happen to know (like chromium or firefox), but I don't have a panel for starting programs or switching between programs. Even Alt+F2 doesn't bring up the normal dialog.

It doesn't matter whether I start kdm through inittab or manually by typing # /etc/rc.d/kdm start. KDM looks great, but once I log in as my normal user I just get a console window with no decoration.Is there a startup script for KDE somewhere that needs to run, and usually has a bunch of programs by default - like a window manager, panels, widgets, and all the normal background programs that run in an ordinary GUI? If so, can someone show me the default script so I can work from there with a window manager, decorator, launchers, etc.?

Tried to uninstall and reinstall Firefox.... Even its icon disappeared from menus after reinstallation (no way to see it in the menu editor). I tried to start it from command line:

firefox %u
and got this reply from Ubuntu:
GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times

I am using Chrome now but I had some useful add-ons on Firefox and wouldn't like to loose them...
