So I puts my shinny new F12 install on my new computer. It's a little climb for me but for the most part easier then some of the other F's that I have tried to install.
One problem I have right now is my inkscape crashes as soon as I try to put some text on a page. I tried the automatic bug report thingy but it complained about me not having a log in. inksacpe is really becoming a very important application for me, I have been trying to shy away from the Windows programs I have been using.
I must say, F12 seems to really be advancing the fedora project into a nice desktop system.
I recently upgraded to koala, but gimp no longer functioned after upgrade; i.e. open file popup dialogue freezes, crop tool is non-functional, preferences dialogue was absolutely a blank box. Tried un-install/re-install thru both the new software center and synaptic. Same broken result every time. Tried a direct download from gimp.org but ran into a lot of dependency stuff I know nothing about; I'm an end user, not a coder. So, how do I get a functioning install of gimp?
my Ubunbtu has upgraded to 11.04. However when I open gimp the toolbar across the top of the image has vanished, even if if move the pointer to where it should be there's nothing? can some one tell me how to get it up.*by toolbar I mean the file edit etc bar.
If you had Gimp 2.6 (with gimp-plugin-registry installed) and installed Gimp 2.7 to try its new goodies, but Layer Effects are not showing, and when executing "gimp" from console you get these *nasty* errors:
Code: This is a development version of GIMP. Debug messages may appear here. gimp-user-install: migrating from /home/user/.gimp-2.6 Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/layerfx.py", line 23, in <module> import gimp, gimpplugin, math ImportError: No module named gimp .....
If you haven't install the 2.7 version yet. Before upgrading, backup "python" directory and then just restore it after installing 2.7.
Some of you may have had with issues after installing GIMP on Lucid Lynx 10.04. Which may be directly related to "gimp-help-en", which could prevent you from installing other applications and preforming system tasks. If so, use this method to fix it.
Process: (Terminal > $ sudo apt-get install gimp)
1. After installing Gimp go to the terminal:
2. Then load up the language support application:
3. Then it will ask you to install the "gimp-help-en", confirm it.
I think this issue is directly linked to a systems with multiple languages, but I haven't been able to test this theory out yet.
I've been using Ubuntu since Feisty Fawn, so I've been around the block when it comes to upgrades. From 9.10 to 10.04 I did a clean install, but I decided to try my luck with a web upgrade to 10.10. Well, so far it looks like that was a bad idea. I can't stay in gdm for more than about 1.5 mins before it crashes and drops me back to the greeter. Honestly, I'm not sure exactly what's crashing, but I'll append what logs I think will give some info.
Just tried to upgrade my mythbuntu box from lucid to maverick.
It crashed during the upgrade. On re-boot it now stops at a dialog telling me its running in low graphics mode because it cannot load/find the nvidia drivers. I am unable to close the dialog. No mouse, no keyboard.
ESC will not let me interrupt the boot to get to a recovery console.
Was running the upgrade through the manager this morning and the download got about 3/4 of the way and froze up making the system unresponsive I left this for an hour to see if it would resolve its self but no luck so as the installation hadn't begun I hit the power button. BIG mistake now when I try boot to 9.10 it hits a black screen with white ubuntu logo much like 9.10 but no loading bar. it just hangs at this now. I am currently posting this from a live usb I made from an ISO of 10.4 i downloaded on my girl friends windows machine. Is it possible to either fix the 9.10 installation or update the files on the 9.10 installation to 10.4 from the live disk(I have the option to make a 9.10 live disk if needed)?
I just tried to upgrade my server to the latest version of Bind9 and the process fails gets frozen.First note that I have Bind in a chroot jail.When I try the upgrade, or the recommended "dpkg --configure -a", it displays this then hangs:Quote:

I have a Dell studio running ubuntu for two years now. I had ubuntu 10.04, but a few days ago, the update manager started to bug me that some stuff don't work properly and that I need to to a partial upgrade. I postponed that for a while, and all worked fine, but I finally had sometime and clicked "yes", all began collapsing:
1) the update manager crashed while updating.
2) I rebooted and ran it again. same crash at the same stage.
3) I decided, god knows why, to do a full upgrade to 10.10, which also crasehd.
Now it won't even boot. It always get stuck at a line saying "no IPv6 routers present" or something of that sort. when I switch off manually the wireless switch on the laptop, the boot gets stuck a bit earlier, on a line that says: "laptop login:"
EDIT: I just remembered something which might be important: I had a hibernation problem on the upgrade to 10.04, so I played around a bit with that. now it uses libgcrypt, and I remember I set up something manually then, but I can't remember what.
I was upgrading my laptop from 10.10 to 11.04. The laptop crashed part way through the upgrade (fairly far in, at least an hour after downloads completed, a few minutes after grub installer asked some questions). The crash was from another issue besides the update
Now when the computer boots it immediately goes into kernal panic (black screen, flashing caps lock light). when selecting recovery mode, it boots for about a 5 seconds then hangs.
I can however at grub select Previous versions of ubuntu > 2.6.35-28 and it will boot succesffully and run without error. Currently running like this to post this message. For the most part everything looks as if it has upgraded. To things worth mentioning.

I backed up my home folder just in case but didn't do a system backup. Wasn't worried if I broke it and had to reinstall, but this doesn't look in my (possibly incorrect) to bad.
Yesterday, while upgrading from Ubuntu 10.04 to 11.04, the computer crashed. For this reason, when I reboot, Ubuntu doesn't recognize any longer the root folder and so on... and halts execution in a blank screen (well before the login screen).I'm currently running LiveCD and I can see the Filesystem with the root folder, the bin folder, home folder and so on....My question is How can I access the files I had in my desktop from LiveCD? I know the user and password so how can I access it?
My exercise below is to check if glxgears crashes xorg of CentOS5.4 with Intel GM965 Chipset. Apparently I don't have luck in this case. Since the exercise failed, it means I will still stick to CentOS 5.2 (residing on a different partition) for a while, even though CentOS5.2 crashes glxgears too. After "yum upgrade" (done after moving all repos in /etc/yum.repos.d to elsewhere except CentOS-Base.repo and CentOS-Media.repo), I ran glxgears that consistently crashes CentOS5.2 xorg, an issue that upset me quite a bit.
During upgrade, I saw a line "grubby fatal error : unable to find a suitable template". I guess the my grub.conf is too confusing for the installer, but that is not big deal, I just used the kernel number 2.6.18-164 where it is applicable. Even this this new update, glxgears still crash the xorg (the screen froze and then a new login screen reappears). With this I am sure the 3D application might still crash the xorg from time to time. (I can still revert to CentOS5.2 with a tar file, but I am still thinking to just upgrade to Centos5.3 but I don't know how.)
I am on debian jessie. I ran "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" and midway through the upgrade my computer suddenly rebooted.
I wasn't paying close attention to the upgrade process so I didnt see if there was any error messages right before the reboot. The laptop was plugged in, fully charged and I've never had issues with overheating.
When I boot now I get to a shell with a message that says:
Code: Select allWelcome to emergency mode. After logging in type "journalctl -xb" to view system logs, "systemctl reboot" to reboot, "systemctl default" to try again to boot into default mode.
If I try "systemctl default" there's a message that simply says "Hangup", nothing else happens.
Looking through "journalctl -xb" I see this:
Code: Select allFailed to insert module 'autofs4' Failed to open /dev/autofs: No such file or directory Failed to initialize automounter: No such file or directory Failed to set up automount Arbitrary Executable File Formats File System Automount Point. Failed to start Load Kernel Modules. If I retry "apt-get upgrade" it says: Code: Select alldpkg was interrupted, you must maually run dpkg --configure -a to correct the problem If I run "dpkg --configure -a" stops at the package cups-browsed with message saying "Hangup"
Output of a few commands I saw in another forum thread:
I have just upgraded to Jessie and everything seems to be OK apart from printing from a windows machine to my print share. This was working previously under wheezy. I can print a test page from Cups without any problems, but when I try and print from windows, Samba seems to crash completely and is constantly writing these messages to the logs. Then I lose access to the other shares, presumably while it repeatedly crashes.

To create a trapezoid in Inkscape: Draw a rectangle. In the Path menu choose Object to Path. Switch to the Node tool. Click on one of the corners of the rectangle which is on the side you wish to make longer or shorter. Use one of the arrow keys to move it left/right or up/down and count the number of times you press the key. Select the corner on the other end of the side you are modifying. Press the arrow key in the opposite direction you used in step 5 the same number of times.
I see (been using Inkscape for couple of weeks now) that there are features that I want to harness in Inkscape 0.47. I have 0.46 on Ubuntu 9.04 in the "Ubuntu Ultimate flavour".Oh by the way, is 10.04 stable? I read that 9.10 wasn't as stable cause of new programs and software and stuff that I have no clue about (I just want linux to be my stable OS in the back ground that doesn't require to much tinkering from me). And having asked that, can I upgrade to 10.04 via an installation disk? I usually get my OS disks from...well, wont say there name otherwise I might be accused of advertising. (downloading installations is expansive with a 3G card until I get ADSL).
I need to draw some flowcharts. I don't have the time to create them, I just need a template where I can manipulate the boxes and edit the text without worrying about the colors and the forms. There's any place where I can get that?
btw, which one is better to create flow charts, Inkscape or Dia? Dia seems to me more intuitive and easy to use but I can't discover how to rotate objects per example, I think it's a little limited in options.
I'm looking for something simple and classic like this, with labeled arrows.
I'm using Inkscape, and I'm trying to import an EPS file to use it as a vector and eventually save it as an SVG.
This link here mentions several methods:
But the responses aren't rated since it's a forum, so I thought I'd ask here to find the best answer. I'd prefer not to have to use some website to convert the file to a PDF first.
Either way, when I import an EPS into Inkscape, or use the website to convert it to a PDF, in both cases the resulting file loses all colour and gradients, and the EPS file gets cut off on the right side.
It looks like ps2pdf is clipping the file incorrectly, and Inkscape is eliminating the colour.
I have these version installed in Ubuntu Lucid Linux:
