Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Desktop Edition - Burned Disk Not Readable
Apr 30, 2010
So I downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Edition and burned it to a disk. Shut off my computer and restarted it, booting from the CD Drive. It couldn't find it. So I thought maybe there was an unrecorded write error so I burned it to a second disc. Well after burning it I noticed I can't even see the disc anymore. It doesn't seem to be recognized at all. That explains why it didn't boot from CD.
But what I want to know is why on earth is it basically going invisible and not working? I've never had a problem with burning discs, especially Ubuntu stuff... So why...? Well I just booted up the CD on a different computer and it seems to be working fine. So it appears that my computer simply has ceased to see bootable discs or maybe its just non-empty discs.
I have been setting up a box now and have it configured with everything I need and is running great.I would like to test out the netbook remix edition is there a way to install the desktop environment along site with Gnome (like I use to do with KDE)Would be great so I wouldn't have to re-configure drivers and such.To be able to switch from Gnome environment to Netbook remix environment.I am running Ubuntu 10.04.
I installed ubuntu 10.10 and everything works perfectly, but whenever I go to shutdown/restart, after showing the ubuntu logo (just like when you log in), the logo goes away, and it just hangs/freezes there.
I've tried waiting even for 10 minutes, but nothing. It there anything I can manually edit for it to just shutdown? If it helps here is my PC...
...and to be specific the WLAN module is a Ralink RT3090.
I know it is possible to install a Ubuntu Server Edition and later on 'upgrade' it to a desktop edition by doing
Code: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop But, as I understood it, this installs apps like OpenOffice and such too... Now, is it possible to install the ubuntu-desktop-GUI (so, actually GNOME) without installing all of the unwanted apps Apps I actually need are pulseaudio, transmission and samba, which I prefer to install separately.
I downloaded and installed the Ubuntu desktop edition and when I boot up I have the options to boot either Windows 7, or Ubuntu (so far so good), however, when I select Ubuntu I get a message saying that the following file is corrupt:
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.
Any thoughts on this? Would just re-installing it fix the problem?
I have just installed 11.04 desktop edition on a freshly built machine with a 3GHz processor and 8GB ram. It has 8GB swap space and a 250GB partition which runs along side a 750GB Windows partition. The problem is it is running incredibly slowly. The interface freezes up every few minutes and stuff takes ages to load. I have run Ubuntu on computers with less than a 1GHz processor before and it has been fine. Should I just reinstall?
I've a faulty hard disk I'm trying to read data from before I send it to the professionals. The disk makes some "good" mechanical noise when plugged into an IDE-USB header into my machine, so I think it's spinning up OK.
Under Windows, the disk is seen in admin tools but I can't do anything to it; it's unreadable and unalterable.
Under Linux (Ubuntu), I see the sdb appear in /dev. No partitions though (no sdb0 etc). At first, I thought this implied that my MBR was bad and the partitions could not be found. But, using dd suggests it's a little worse that:
My config: PI945GZD motherboard 2 GB RAM Windows 7 UltimateMy processor supports 64 bit OS but I have not tried any. So should I download and use the 32 bit edition or the 64 bit edition.I have sound blaster 5.1(not sound blaster 5.1 live). Would it work in ubuntu?
i have win 7 ultimate running (32bit) on intel core 2 duo (64 bit) laptop.i have downloaded 32 bit version of ubuntu 10.04 and the wubi today. my win is running on C drive (primery partition). i have not enough space in c drive. can i install ubuntu in E drive
So I installed UNR10.10 on my netbook and im not really happy with unity. so i thought i would just log into the normal gnome version and customize it to my liking. from the login screen i choose "Ubuntu-Desktop-Edition" and log in. But the screen just shows my wallpaper...nothing else...i cant call up a terminal, dont get any right click options, nothing. How can i enable the normal desktop interface on the 10.10 Netbook version
Where can I get a good copy of Ubuntu desktop edition. I have a cd of Ubuntu 10.04 but it will not load on my machine. This same cd did load at one time on the same computer.Every time I download ubuntu and check the MD5 files they do not match.
I've been trying for days now to install Ubuntu on a Dell Dimension 5100 desktop. It's got a 2ghz processor, ATI graphics card and 512 ram. It has a DVD drive that it boots from. Here's the problem. I have Ubuntu 10 burned on a regular CD and I have Ubuntu 9.1 burned on a DVD. I can boot this Dell up using the CD. It goes through the regular install, gets to 23% then tells me that it can't recognize the CD/DVD device or the hard drive. I've re-seated cables, I know the hardware is all good, this is my media computer that Ive had attached to my TV now for a year. It was running fine 3 days ago before I got the great idea to convert it to Linux.
Now...once that fails I try to put in the burned DVD of version 9. Again the computer boots, I tell it to boot from the DVD...but this time the computer acts as if that drive doesn't even exist. It simply can't find the DVD drive anymore once I put a DVD into it. Is this a problem with the basic reading?? It'll read a CD but not a DVD. If I let it boot all the way to the live Ubuntu CD, the DVD drive is recognized just fine, reads DVDs, etc. Is there another solution, something I should be trying? I need this comp on Ubuntu. I've already converted all other systems in my house and this POS is the only abomination still using windows.
I checked the md5sum of the iso using winMd5Sum utility, it is OK.
To check the CD, right clicked the md5sum file in it, send to winmd5sum, and then copied the corresponding hash from the ubuntuhashes page into the bottom text box, and compared. The message box says md5 sums are different. Now the question is, have I done it correctly, I mean, is this the way to check a burned CD, OR, is there another way to check md5sum of a burned CD?
I'm trying to setup my Ubuntu 9.10 laptop to host a small website that I can practice and learn stuff with and I'm a little stuck at the minute.
I have got Apache2 and the LAMP stack installed okay, along with phpMyAdmin and can give my external IP to anyone with the http:// and anyone can view my website that way but what I want to do is have my IP resolve into a domain name like ooloo-website.net but I don't know how to do this.
Is there any way that I can do this like register my IP to a free DNS and domain website without buying a domain or using one of those free ones like ooloo.webhost.net or do I need to host everything myself like DNS and the domain? Can I even do all of this myself?
I am running Lucid Lynx, Desktop Edition on an asus eee 1005ha netbook. i've noticed a strange issue. there are two accounts i've setup, one admin and one normal user. when i click on logout and login as admin and then boot into the admin desktop and then click on logout again, i get a blank screen and nothing happens. i have to remove the battery and restart the system to get it running again.
When in kubuntu netbook edition 10.04 I select an activity as Desktop, the plasma button dissapears, also I can't add items or lock the desktop widgets. I can drop folders and create icons. Can make them smaller but when I do it I can't make them bigger again!
What's the difference in terms of scalability? We would be hosting videos and FOSS collaboration tools (wiki, forums, etc.) on 4 separate servers. If I install the cloud server, I will need to install the GUI anyways. The servers are all brand new
I just upgraded to 10.10, had a look at Netbook Edition, and while I like some aspects of it, still prefer the way I've set things up using the standard Gnome Desktop Edition. Thing is, I DO love the idea of putting the titlebar information into the top panel. I like that a lot. Is there any way of doing that in the Desktop edition?
I just installed Linux Ubuntu Desktop Edition on my Acer Aspire T671-TB7Z, the installation went smooth but the internet is not working. When I login the background blinks 3 times, and I can't move the mouse, after that I can. But the real problem is I am not very experienced with Linux but the wireless icon does show up and I can access wireless networks, I am connected, but when I load a page on Firefox it says it is on "work offline" so I unticked it and tried again. Nothing worked again, this is weird because I am using it now to post this thread on my sisters netbook and on the pc that has the problem has Windows 7 Ultimate as a dual boot and the internet works fine on that too, the only internet problem I have is linux.
