Ubuntu Installation :: Downloaded File Just Appearing On Desktop?
Sep 29, 2010
Alright, so I followed the step by step instructions from this page: [URL]. When I downloaded the file, the file appeared on my desktop as an unknown file with the name "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". I thought this was strange because it didn't have the ".iso" after it. I tried looking for a download location for the file that would give me a .iso file, but whenever I download the file it just appears on my desktop as "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". After that, I downloaded Infra Recorder, and followed those instructions. Everything was going fine and when the progress bar hit 100%, Infra Recorder gave me some kind of error.
I can't recall exactly what it said, but it said to check the log file or something like that. I wasn't sure what to do at this point, so I tried installing Ubuntu anyway. I rebooted with the CD and it took me to the burgundy screen and it started to load, but then the installation crashed to an MS DOS screen with some gibberish that I didn't understand. Obviously the CD I wrote didn't have all of the installation files it needed. What should I do? Is there something wrong with the file that I downloaded? My computer is a Dell Vostro 200 and I am running Windows XP.
Running Ubuntu 10.04 currently. But for some reason cant seem to find what im looking for about making USB drives bootable once ive downloaded the .iso file i want. USB-creator-gtk seems to only work with the ubuntu family. ImageWriter only works with .img files? I want to play around with other linux distros from .iso. I tried makebootfat and got some errors. ill post them later if you guys think makebootfat is the way to go but i think im making it to too hard on myself.
I have downloaded Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD.iso. Now I want to create a bootable USB from the downloaded ISO file. I tried with the latest version of liveusb-creator 3.9.1. I am unable to do so. It took around 3 days to download the iso file and now I cant even use it.
ERROR MESSAGE:: Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD.iso selected Verifying filesystem... Extracting live image to USB device... Wrote to device at 1 MB/sec Creating 100MB persistent overlay LiveUSB creation failed! Here is the screen shot....
I am new to ubuntu. I need to install BLUEMAN on my ubuntu 10.04. I have downloaded the file on my cell from the blueman website , its blueman.tar.gz. Furthermore I don't have any lan or wireless connection on my netbook. How to install this blueman on ubuntu on my netbook? When I transfer the file on unubtu desktop, it is detected as an archive.,,.
after the netinst finished to download the last package, one hour later the process never continues, I checked the log file and I didn't find anything suspecious, also dmesg and nothing, in fact, in the log file before checked I found that the last line was registered just a minute ago - DHCP renew IP-, so my questions are:
1. all the packages downloaded are gone?, can I restart the installation using all those packages downloaded?
2. where I can find the error or problem that cause that the installation was freezed?
3. in the case that installation needs to start from the beginning, can I use the package downloaded?

Precision: I am working on ubuntu 10.04, but there is a partiion with windows 7, and a third one with nothing, just for sharing flies between windows and ubuntu
just installed ubuntu and for some reason whenever i do anything that involves downloading something or updating anything it seems to save to my desktop. I'm sure this is a simple issue to fix, i'm just a noob with this OS so i have no idea how to do it .
I'm a old ubuntu user and It's a long time a have this problem (probably since Gutsy Gibbon) but just now I decided to ask for the community help to solve it, until now I fault every try.randomly, on my desktop and screen in general, appears something like confused characters composing strange writing, and the way to remove them is by selecting a empty area around them, dragging it with the left mouse button.
Those sort of writing appears everywhere on the screen but never over a open application area, those characters looks like a sort of refresh error that I'm unable to definitively remove.To let you better understand how this problem looks like, I link a snapshot of my desktop to show you the problem.
I am running Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex dual-booting with Vista for work purposes. I have been running the two successfully for quite a few months now and am just getting to grips with it. I have lost my desktop at start-up. I get all the way past the Login to a blank desktop background (just colour - no image) and the only thing visible is a Terminal window. As I am not familiar with Linux command lines I can't do very much. I have even tried reinstalling Ubuntu which showed no error messages that I noticed but, I have the same result. At the moment I have used Supergrub to allow me to boot straight to Vista till I get things sorted out.
Note: the image may load slowly as it is a server on my home internet connection [IMG]http://mshenrick.dyndns.org/Pictures/uf1.png as you can see, most icons are in the notification area, but skype and any programs with icons opened after appear always on top in the top left corner. I've tried moving things about to no avail
Why do I keep getting .gvfs (gnome virtual file system) file appearing as corrupt in /~/usr directory, I can get rid of it by unmounting, but it re-appears later on. It is causing problems as it interrupts my backups (which are automated) with an error message,ListError .gtk-bookmarks/.gvfs [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/jimt/.gvfs'
When I booted up this morning the contents of my Home directory are all showing up on my desktop, and there is no single Home folder. How did this change, and how can I change it back so that the Home folder is on my Desktop with the contents inside of *it*?
I downloaded the demo of Penumbra Overture, it is a .sh file (113Mb). I can't open the file. In a terminal I ran chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and then sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and I get an error "./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh: 2: Syntax error: "(" unexpected" . The quotation marks are my own. Is the file corrupted? One of my lugmates thinks it might be a shar file, but Karmic says that it is a shell script. Another friend says that it is too large to be a shell script. Here is the code:
john@john-laptop:~$ cd /home/john/00 john@john-laptop:~/00$ chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh john@john-laptop:~/00$ sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh
I am testing LogAnalyzer 3.0, with several Linux servers configured to send their log files to the central server. All Linux servers use syslog as the daemon of choice. While it does appear that LogAnalyzer to be working somewhat, I noticed that a particular log file present on all servers, secure, does not have any entries appearing at the central server. The configuration of the secure file, via the /etc/syslog.conf file, on all servers is shown below:
Code: # The authpriv file has restricted access. authpriv.* /var/log/secure
Do I need to make any additional modifications to the syslog.conf or any other file?
I am having problems installing the OOO_3.2.1_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz install package from openoffice.org. When I unpack the tar.gz file, I get another folder labeled OOO320_m18_native_packed-1_en-US.9502, which as a folder named DEBS that has number of .deb files. How do I install the mentioned file or files? I would like to use the download for installation, so I can get the updated version of OpenOffice, and not use the Ubuntu repository.
I recently downloaded eclipse IDE and Seamonkey, which are both currently executable files, but they do not show up under 'applications' on the top panel. Is there any way for me to change this such that they can appear under 'Applications' in any of the subcategories?
I have been having problems with Ubuntu. I just downloaded it yesterday and burned it to CD. However, when attempting to install it, I get errors. Unfortunately, I cannot recall the exact error but it stops the install. I will give further information later but wanted to ask if anyone has heard of this happening and if so, what the problems might be? I checked it with the MD5 and it appears to be a valid file, but the disk is giving me errors!
for some reason the update manage isn't appearing on the taskbar when I have updates available.I've set it so that it should notify me if updates are available, but nothing's happening =/.Also, when I *do* download updates through it, I'm lucky if I can get more than a 10Kb/s download - yet everything else works fine.
I have an unusual request for help. I asked this question on the Backtrack forums, but they were I have a dualboot of Ubuntu 9.04 and Backtrack 4 on my laptop. Backtrack 4, for those that don't know, is a security penetration testing distro based on Ubuntu with a KDE environment. It basically IS ubuntu, but with some changes, so I figured I'd ask this here.The menu in backtrack has been stripped of it's "Games" folder, as well as some other folders. so when I use "add/remove applications" to install a game it doesn't put a shortcut to it in a Games directory. I tried adding a Games directory to the menu bar myselff, but when I try to install a game, the installer still doesn't see it and put a shortcut there. How can I fix this so that it does?
