Ubuntu :: Icon From Mounted Partition Always Appears In Desktop?

Aug 31, 2010

I set my fstab to auto mount one of my partitions in ~/Music.It works perfectly, but there is always the icon in the desktop pointing to my partition with the name "40 GB FileSystem". The idea behind mounting it automatically to ~./Music was for the partition to be transparent to me...Is there a way to remove that icon from the desktop and from the Places menu?

Ubuntu Networking :: Lost Desktop Icon For Mounted Network Share

Jan 19, 2010

I have suddenly lost the desktop icon (of a hard drive) for a mounted network share. It is funny because, I have other network mounts which share the same server, and there icons are appearing, and this particular share just does not show up with the icon, even if I try mounting it different locations in the filesystem. Any ideas. I really like those cute icons on my desktop.

Ubuntu :: Tell Kernel To Reread Partition Table While One Partition Mounted

Feb 5, 2010

Is there a program that will reread the partition table and update the kernel even if one of the unmodified partitions is mounted? I installed my system on one partition, then I added another with free space. Now I want to format the second partition, but the kernel doesn't know about it yet. I tried sfdisk -R /dev/sda, but it refuses while the root partition is mounted. Is there anyway I can avoid rebooting?

Ubuntu Installation :: Desktop Appears But Nothing Responds?

Jan 10, 2011

After making a new install of Maverick, it lets me login but then drops me on a desktop that is empty apart from the menu and taskbar. That's not a problem in itself, but nothing responds when I click it. The mouse pointer moves, but I can't click anything. Before logging in, I can click stuff on the login screen, so the mouse as such works.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Appears To Have Cratered Myubuntu Partition

Mar 23, 2011

I have Ubuntu 10.04 dual boot with WXP Update manager said I needed to update. Gave the password. Then it said reboot. When I rebooted, only the XP partition would boot. I saw that grub was updated. Is it possible that the grub update corrupted my grub? I can see the menu to select either WXP or Ubuntu, but when I select Ubuntu, the system reboots from scratch. I am booted from an Ubuntu USB key right now. I tried to mount what I think is the Ubuntu partition, but there does not appear to be anything on it.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Enable Desktop Effects. Error Appears After Searching For Drivers

May 8, 2010

Well, wouldn't you just know it? I encountered problems when upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 with update-manager. What a surprise. Anyway, here are the problems:1. Cannot enable desktop effects. Error appears after searching for drivers.

2. 2-3 minute boot times. Used to be 40 seconds. It spends 2 *minutes* in the BIOS before actually starting Ubuntu.

3. The volume controls on my laptop's keyboard now control PCM rather than Master, so everything is horrifically loud past three clicks, and two quiet under that.

4. The bootsplash displays at 1280x800, my monitor's resolution, and looks pretty. The log in screen, however, switches to what looks like 1024x768. When I log in it changes back to 1280x800.

5. Cannot boot into Windows from grub. When I select Windows, a blinking cursor appears in the top left corner and stays there. Nothing happens
