Ubuntu :: Getting Inkscape Ver. 0.48 - Cursor Doesn't Line Up With The Tool On Screen

Aug 30, 2010

I have Inkscape 0.48 running on a windows xp laptop, but I can't find a way of getting it onto my desktop system running Ubuntu 8.04, which I need to run EMC2.

If I use apt-get to download the latest version, it gets 0.46, which has a cursor/tool bug in it.(The cursor doesn't line up with the tool on screen).

Is it possible for me to successfully transfer 0.48 via a memory stick to the desktop, without jeopardizing the Ubuntu system, or is there some other way ?

Ubuntu :: Cut Random Text And When The Cursor Focus Jumps Back To The Location Of The Cursor On The Screen

Jul 1, 2010

Im running netbook remix on a eeepc 1005ha. It is my only OS and Im loving it except for one obnoxious quirk. It randomly cuts text and randomly pastes it. If there is something in the clipboard, it will usually paste that, but just as often it will cut random text and paste that. The pastes occur when the cursor focus jumps back to the location of the cursor on the screen. I dont know a better way to phrase that, but thats what it is doing. Say... I put the cursor over the word "pastes" in the paragraph above... even though Im typing in this paragraph, the focus will "jump" to the cursors physical locale (the word "pastes") and then paste whatever is in the clipboard. If the cursor is outside of the textbox, the page will jump to the bottom.

This behavior occurs across programs and in any place text can be entered. I can find no rhyme or reason for it... it just... happens. Sometimes even when Im away from my computer, so its not like Im hitting some key on accident. I have loved everything about this ubuntu distro, but this issue is just toany obnoxious. Writing psych papers on this thing is going to be near impossible if I dont get this fixed before I go back to school.

Ubuntu :: Stuck On Black Screen With (mouse) Cursor After Grub And A Purple Screen?

Jul 21, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 today as the main OS on my laptop.I had deleted my XP partition, and repartitioned it according to a guide I had found. (http:url)......Basically it was setup like this: 500mb ext2 primary partition, has the grub folder, I believe this is either the '/' partition, or the '/boot' partition 2gb swap space logical partition

10gb ext4 logical partition -- this is either the '/' or the '/boot', it contains the 'bin,boot,cdrom,dev' etc folders 243gb (the rest of my hard drive, with the exception of a partition that contains documents and files from my XP OS, formatted to NTFS) ext4, this is the one that has all my desktop/documents/etc folders.After Ubuntu was done installing, I had some message pop up about installing an ATI proprietary driver for my ATI graphics card (an ATI Radeon HD 4330, I believe, I may have messed that number up). I installed it and rebooted, no problem.

Next, I had another update window pop up with 198 items checked and ready to download and install. I went through all of this, and rebooted, again, no problem.Next thing I did was install some apps that were essential for me to have to use for my work (an ide, chat programs, etc). No problem with any of that.Last thing to install was the OSE Virtualbox, and then I installed WindowsXP Pro and Windows Vista Business, then installed the guest addition addon for VB. This all worked without any issues whatsoever.

Time goes on, and I notice my computer is heating up much more than (seemingly) normal. I begin to wonder if its my graphics card. So I shut down the computer and let it cool down. Reboot, and no problem, still working fine.Then I opened a couple of apps and tried a simple game (can't remember the name) I believe it was a simple 3d topdown, as I wanted to test my graphics card. This is where things seemed to start to go wrong. My laptop began hanging, not even allowing me to access the terminal via ctrl+alt+f2. The screen flashed and I saw the blue/green/grey fuzz that I get when the graphics card is starting to heat up too much. Then everything hangs and I can't do anything at all, including move the mouse. I did a hard reboot (I believe this is what you call pulling the plug/pressing the power button, correct me if I'm wrong). I then rebooted, saw a chkdisk, then it booted seemingly normal, but it hung right after the purple screen after the grub screen.

This is pretty much where I'm at right now. I strongly suspect the fault is with the ATI drivers, but have been completely unsuccessful in my attempts to fix it. I've googled just about everything I could think of, along with searching these forums. I've tried just about everything listed in the forums, but to no avail.I've tried the commands that are supposed to purge the ati drivers, but all I get are errors that say they can't remove the 'virtual drivers'.

Right now I'm booting off a live cd, so I know the computer still works fine, just not my actual installed OS. I'd really like to get the issue resolved without having to reinstall, as it took quite awhile just to get it usable in the first place, but this has already taken so much time, I may just resort to that if we can't solve it any other way. Got too much work to catch up on as it is.As a re-instated note, perhaps if you have any tips, but not particularly about fixing the OS, my laptop (I'm strongly guessing my graphics card) is heating up much more than normal, compared to that when XP was installed. Is this more than likely just a driver issue, as is the rest of it? Also, I did have Compiz installed, though I didn't choose for it to be installed, I believe it came pre-installed. I've heard it could cause some issues, though I have no idea as to the validity or relation to this particular issue.

Edit:
I just remembered while searching for a solution, I found a post somewhere that said something about the information not being sent to the monitor from the graphics card properly, thus no desktop. I'm guessing that'd still fall under the driver issues, but again, I'm unsure. I would think that wouldn't be entirely true anyway, since I can still see my mouse fine, just no desktop, only a black screen.

OpenSUSE :: Vi Editor Ctrl-g Does Not Display Cursor Line Number

Aug 5, 2010

On Solaris UNIX, pressing Ctrl-g displays the line number for the cursor position.

i.e. line 1 0f n* --0%--

But, on suse Ctrl-g on displays the percentage only, not the hard line number

i.e. n* lines --8%--

Anyway I can make vi display hard line just like Solaris?

General :: Command Line Search Tool

Apr 10, 2011

This is a bit of a long shot and I think the answer will be no but I thought I'd ask just in case. I have a number of tutorials in html but I want to be able to search for particular information in these files and display that information in the terminal rather than having to go through a browser. Apart from using grep which gives a pretty messy display or having to write a a specially Bash or python script, is there any command line tools that can provide such a function?

Software :: Tool For Replacing First Match Per Line?

May 4, 2010

I've got a file that I want to convert to a CSV format.

Each line of the file is something like:

term1a term1b [pronunciation] definition
term2a term2b [pronunciation] definition
term3a term3b [pronunciation] definition

To get it into CSV, I just need to perform 3 find and replace operations:

First, replace the first " " (space) with a "," (comma). Next, replace the first " [" (space and right-facing square bracket) with a "," (comma). Finally, replace the first "] " (left-facing square bracket and a space) with a "," (comma).

The reason it must only be the first such occurance, is the definition area contains lots of spaces and square brackets which I'd like to leave left untouched.

Ubuntu :: New Cursor Doesn't Fully Function?

Oct 23, 2010

I am currently redoing my setup and have installed a new cursor called Vienna3Ubuntu. I extracted it to the .icons folder, went to preferences and found it, it the cursor options list, right where it should be, but when I applied it, it only works kinda half way, the normal cursor won't change at all, and the other cursors only work in by browser and when I am reszing windows and such. Why won't the cursor work like it should? I am using compiz and I wonder if that has something to do with it. I have already tried restarting, relogging, reinstalling, and fiddling with general options in compiz.

Is it possible to add programs to the Gnome Tool Bar from command line? aka via a script2. Is it possible to modify the default panel template so new users get my changes?

is there a command line tool or an independent tool that i can launch forwarding x I can use to search for and connect to wifi networks that would also have the ability to save configuration so that when I reboot the system automatically connects to my wifi?

Ubuntu :: Mouse Cursor Doesn't Display After Login With High Resolution / Fix It?

Aug 12, 2010

Version: Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop

Problem:
When I change the resolution higher (e.g. 1920x1080),
mouse cursor disappear, until I open the terminal / Ctrl+Alt+F1 (~F6), or run other applications.
But the main problem is, every time after login, the cursor will disappear
(as I know that, before the login, the resolution is 800x600 60Hz, after login, the resolution will be adjusted according to the setting)
So, anyone know how to fix this problem?

I have searched many related posts before,
some of them told me to upgrade the driver, but it didn't help and become worse (cannot boot up, need to re-install ubuntu)
and some of them told me to modify the xorg file, it didn't help, too. (as xorg.conf doesn't exist and I have tried to create one to do the modification, but didn't help)
Any other solution?

Ubuntu Installation :: After Upgrading 10.04 To 10.10 System Doesn't Boot (only Blinking Cursor)

Feb 1, 2011

I tried to upgrade to Maverick (server version) usingsudo do-release-upgradeAll went well, but on the first reboot after the installation the PC hangs with grub prompt:error: the symbol grub_xputs not foundI guess it has something to do with my RAID1 setup:sda1/sdb1..RAID1, bootable (system partition, 20 GB)sdc1 ....swap partition sda2/sdb2/sdc2 ... RAID5 (data partition, 3 TB)I made a bootable (using UNetbootin) USB pen drive with 10.10 desktop on it and booted into this desktop version. Aftermdadm --assemble --scanI could successfully access (and mount) my RAID1 and RAID5 drives. However, the system itself does not boot.

after only having mounted /dev/md0 and browsed in the contents, the boot behavior has changed: now the PC does not end up in the grub prompt "the symbol grub_xputs not found", but instead a blank black screen with a blinking cursor left top is shown. Keyboard: no reaction (I tried Enter, Esc, any keys ... no reaction, just a blinking cursor).Then, I tried:

boot into USB pen drive 10.10 desktop
mdadm --assemble --scan ... result: /dev/md0 is available (the RAID1 of sda1 and sdb1)
mount /dev/md0 /mnt/md0

Ubuntu Installation :: Acer Aspire One - 10.4 Doesn't Boot, But Shows Blinking Cursor?

May 25, 2010

Similar problems to mine have popped up elsewhere, but none of the fixes seem to work (or I'm just too stupid). I tried to see what the people at Canonical and elsewhere came up with for Ubuntu 10.4 and, after the live USB checked out fine, I rather foolishly installed the OS on my Acer Aspire One D250 (1GB RAM), to run alongside Windows XP.

It booted up once, I think, and then no more. I believe the problem MIGHT be the Broadcom WiFi stuff, but I'm not sure. Anyway, booting Ubuntu leads to a blank screen with a blinking cursor... which doesn't appear to go away. Recovery mode worked once or twice (had to use ACPI=OFF at least once), then no more. It leads to the same thing: that perpetually blinking cursor.

What I would like is either a fix to get Ubuntu 10.4 launched, or some way to remove the OS and restore my netbook back to what it was. Unfortunately, the MBR fixes that are posted all over cyberspace are useless, as my hidden partition doesn't contain the rtmbr.bin file it needs to work (don't ask me why--I've already posted that question at the AAO user forum). So it seems a fix to launch Ubuntu is the only solution, so that I can at least set grub to launch Windows XP rather than Ubuntu.
