Ubuntu Installation :: Infra-red Remote Control Doesn't Work After Upgrade To Lucid

Apr 30, 2010

I've just upgraded my web/tv setup from 9.10 to lucid and everything seems to be working apart from my infra red remote control.The remote was working fine in 9.10 and was used to control mythtv-frontend however after the upgrade the remote appears to be controlling ubuntu natively, i.e. right left up and down control what is selected on the desktop where as previously the remote was set to only work within mythtv. Whilst native support for my remote control is muchly appreciated(if that is what this is) where can I configure the controls so that it is usable again?

Ubuntu Installation :: Remote X Applications Don't Work After Upgrade To Lucid

Oct 2, 2010

I upgraded my Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy) system to 10.04 (Lucid) and my remote X applications no longer work. The problem seems to pertain to Xauthority. When the remote X client attempts to access the X server on Lucid it receives an error indicating that there is no matching MIT Magic Cookie (hereafter cookie) for the display. It turns out that this is true. I'm of the belief that the subject cookie should be generated for my display when the X session is started on Lucid.I thought this was being done by GDM when I logged on. However, $HOME/.Xauthority contains only 1 cookie which is for the display identified as "Pluto/Unix:0" (Pluto is the name of the host). I'm expecting a cookie for a display identified as "Pluto.my.test:0" where "my.test" is the domain name for my network.

Ubuntu :: Hibernation Doesn't Work Correctly After Upgrade To Lucid?

May 11, 2010

After the upgrade, I've noticed a problem I haven't had before - hibernating worked fine to the last. The problem is, although the system correctly hibernates, it makes no attempt to "wake" from hibernation when I power it up - it boots normally, and with fsck-ing like it was powered off without proper shutdown (understandably). I don't know why it happens, and I've skimmed the logs, but noticed nothing special. What could be the problem? What could I try? Which log should help someone find that out?

Ubuntu :: Remote Control Running At Work From Home PC?

Oct 12, 2010

I have an Ubuntu 10.10 running on a pc at work. On my Windows pc I can use a free utility called Teamviewer which you run on the pc (no install needed) and then you connect without any need to VPN into my work network.

So, what would be the best way to connect from home and remotely connect to my Ubuntu system at work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Monitor Doesn't Work After Upgrade?

Before ubuntu can even boot I get this on my monitor

Out of range Please set to 1280x1080 @ 60Hz

I get that a grub. I'm not even sure if ubuntu can even boot because my monitor won't let me see anything. I'm using the driver off the nvidia website, not the stock one that came with ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade - Can't Read Anything - Touchpad Doesn't Work

Feb 8, 2010

This weekend I did a distribution upgrade to Karmic, but it didn't go very well. Upon reboot, I see a white ubuntu logo on a black screen. I hear the speakers pop, and the screen flashes several times, sorta like the blank screen is maybe changing video modes. After a while I see what I think is garbled text but is unreadable, and it looks like I can log on even though I can't read anything. Now, booting into recovery mode gets me to a readable prompt. There are no upgrades to apply. Typing gdm from here gets me to the desktop just fine. Also when booting, if I choose an earlier kernel the system boots fine also, except the touchpad doesn't work.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Upgrade To 11.04 Mouse Doesn't Work--only The Keyboard Does?

Jun 24, 2011

I recently tried to upgrade my Dell Latitude C610 from 10.10 to 11.04, but it got kernel panic right in the middle. Now it at least boots, but the mouse doesn't work--only the keyboard does. How do I fix this enough to use the mouse, or how do I operate Gnome with a keyboard?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 9.10 To 10.04: Keyboard Doesn't Work On X Login Anymore

Apr 30, 2010

Just before Lucid was released, I installed karmic on a vanilla VM in 64-bit mode, and all was good. Did a desktop setup and afterwards installed Eclipse, and I was happy: A new system for coding on-the-go! Now, after upgrading to Lucid with do-release-upgrade -d, I can no longer enter my password on X login. The keyboard just doesn't work for some reason. When I enable the onscreen keyboard, and click my password, I can login. The strange thing is that my keyboard works like a charm after I've logged into my X session?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Lucid Upgrade Broken LIRC (MacBook Remote)

May 4, 2010

After upgrading to lucid, the remote that accompanied my macbook 4.1 appears to do nothing. (Testing with irw and xev). The howto at [URL] avoids any reference to the remote. I had it working properly in karmic. The howto at [URL] fails to help -- and is pretty much what I'd successfully done under kamic. The following launchpad post accurately describes my experience: [URL]. Has anyone resolved, found a workaround for, or otherwise had success getting lirc to work on a macbook with lucid?

Ubuntu :: Brightness Control Doesn't Work?

I added the Brightness Applet to the top panel, but when I change the brightness, nothing happens. D:I can't stand this, it's like my screen is stuck on supa-bright and it's hurting my eyes. When I load my PC up in Windows, the brightness control works just fine. But it doesn't seem to work on Ubuntu.

Fedora Installation :: Soft Linked Yum Cache For Upgrade Doesn't Work?

Jul 4, 2009

I tried to upgrade to Leonidas from Cambridge, but didn't have enough space on the partition /, so I soft linked /var/cache/yum (or whatever) to a larger partition, but now the upgrade does not find the subdirectory called preupdate (it's there in the linked dir, checked). Is there any more sofisticated way around than changing parition sizes and copying and stuff?

Ubuntu :: Sound Doesn't Work And Can't Control The Volume

Jan 31, 2010

I bought a Toshiba Nb205 laptop with a Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02) inside. After I first got it I installed Ubuntu onto it, and that's where the problems started. After everything was installed I noticed that my sound doesn't work. So I looked everywhere. I tried so many solutions offered on these forums including messing around with Alsamixer and nothing seemed to be working. Then one day I luckily stumbled upon this website that directed me here: [URL] So I went there and picked the Linux 2.6(X86)(DEB) from the drop down list and installed it. I rebooted my machine, and I now had sound.

However, the only problem is that I can't control the volume of the sound. When I play something, it stays at one volume and one volume only. Nothing on sound preferences will work. The only way I can raise or lower the volume is if I do it in the application that I run, like if I am playing a ..... video, I have to use their volume control to control the volume. My master volume won't work at all.

Hardware :: Microphone Control - Doesn't Work

Jan 14, 2010

I've been having problems in getting my microphone input to work. Frustratingly, it works sometimes and doesn't work at other times, and I have yet to discover what causes the difference. I've been testing it with the Skype Sound Test Service.

My laptop, like most others, has a built-in microphone as well as a microphone jack (which I'm using). In kmix, there are sliders for:

What do all of these do, and how do they relate to the two microphone sources? Can I use them to select input from one source while silencing the other? Where can I read about this?

I'm running Kubuntu Koala, so I asked this question over in the Kubuntu forum, but no one there has responded. That was probably not the best place to try (for this issue, at least).

Ubuntu :: Nanny Parental Control Timelimit Doesn't Work / Why Is So?

Nov 17, 2010

I use the Ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix. To limit the time of kids using the netbook I installed Nanny and set the timelimit to 0,5 h.

But for some reason it doesn't work. You can see the Nanny Icon, but it isn't logging of the user when the timelimit is reached...

Did anyone encounter the same problem or is it just me who did something wrong?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Line-in Doesn't Work Lucid

Nov 1, 2010

Using Lucid and most things seem to be going OK but I can't get the computer to take the line-in signal.

It's an AsRock M3A785GMH/128M mainboard (ALC888 Audio) and I'm on Lucid 64-bit.

I've checked the jack's in the right socket, that the input is elected in both the normal ALSA volume control and pulse, and that the volume controls are turned up.

I know also that there is a signal going into the line-in lead!

Ubuntu Installation :: Recent Update Breaks Remote Control?

Jul 17, 2011

My mythbuntu 10.10 system including its lirc managed remote control has been working fine.I've recently done some updates (see below) and now the remote doesn't work correctly (only some of its keys seem to work). I suspect that lirc is no longer managing the remote and now instead the remote is now being treated like a keyboard.How do I get lirc managing my remote control correctly again,Before the updates the kernel was:

Code:
$ uname -a
Linux pvr 2.6.35-28-generic-pae #50-Ubuntu SMP Fri Mar 18 20:43:15 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Missing Volume Control Symbol?

May 3, 2010

Upgraded to Lucid and there is no volume control on the upper panel just to the left of the date calendar/time like there was on Karmic and earlier versions. Searched but can't find it. How can I put it back on the upper panel? It looked like a speaker with sound waves coming out of the speaker. I always used it on other versions before.

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Viewer Doesn't Work

Sep 18, 2010

I have Lynx, trying to connect to a tightvnc server on a Win7 box on my LAN.

Server IP: 192.168.1.42:5900

The remote desktop window just goes black and pops up a dialog saying connection closed every time.However VNC works fine as I installed xtightvncviewer as an alternative and that connects, and I can view the Win7 desktop and control it and do everything you would expect.

I've also tried connecting using Android VNC viewer from my phone on my LAN and that also works fine so it appears to be an issue with Remote Desktop Viewer.Incidentally using R.D.V. on Intrepid into a tightvnc server on my old XP box worked fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Option For Canon Remote Capture - Remote Camera Control Software ?

Oct 17, 2010

Canon cameras used to come with a piece of software called remote capture for Windows and MacOS.

You plug in the camera via USB, and then the camera display is on your monitor. From there you can do everything your camera does, like taking pictures of video. Does anyone know if there is linux equivalent software that can do this?

I have found this software, but new cameras aren't supported.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: When Sound At Remote Sink Flash Doesn't Work

Jan 23, 2010

i just reported a bug to launchpad (#511562. i'm not sure if this bug is in flashplugin-installer or pulseaudio.when i use firefox or chrome for watching a flash video from videos for example, all works good. i then transfer the sound to a remote sink using sound preferences > output > internal audio analog stereo on myuser@otherhost. after this is done, the flash video halts. this is also true if i restart firefox and start a new video, already having transferred the sound. sometimes you can see the video taking huge skips forward. for example, on a 3 minute music video, i see 3-4 different frames from different places in the video. the sound is ok though! 100% reproducible and if i transfer the sound back to local speakers the video resumes and plays perfectly.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dual Head Doesn't Work Anymore In Lucid?

May 9, 2010

Upon upgrading to Lucid from Karmic, my dual head setup doesn't work anymore with the new 2.6.32 kernel. In the previous kernel 2.6.31, everything works as expected (also when I boot Lucid with that kernel). On 2.6.32, the only thing I get is two clones. Is there some new type of configuration required that I missed or should I still compile some new kernel module???

My card:

Code:
rogier@rogier-desktop:~$ lspci |grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV250 If [Radeon 9000] (rev 01)
My xorg.conf, which worked fine on Karmic:

Ubuntu :: Viewing Desktop Using Remote Client (Windows TightVNC) Doesn't Work

Apr 30, 2010

When either of the proprietary Nvidia drivers are enabled, viewing the desktop using a remote client (Windows TightVNC) does not work. The initial remote screen display is ok, but no updates to the remote display occur. Reverting back to the non-proprietary driver solves the problem. I have also tried using a 10.04 Live CD and used Remote Desktop Viewer on the client machine, and it behaves the same way.

Ubuntu :: Remote Doesn't Work Without Keyboard / Mouse Plugged In - Restore Its Functionality?

Oct 11, 2010

I (finally!) have Mythtv working under 10.04. I use the Haupaugge DVB-T card with its remote. Whilst setting up the kit this worked OK. When I unplugged the keyboard and mouse the system prior to installing it next to the TV appeared to have stopped responding to the remote. In fact it seems to be responding to a number of the remote keys but not the OK and Go keys which isn't enough to run Mythtv.

I don't think leaving a keyboard & mouse plugged in is going to be domestically acceptable.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how to restore lirc functionality?

Ubuntu :: Sound Doesn't Work In Wine - X-fi Card No Shows Up In The Sound Control Panel

Sep 26, 2010

In ubuntu 10.04 my X-fi Fatal1ty Titanium sound card worked for my speakers but I had to use onboard sound for the mic. When I installed 10.10 the sound card no longer works at all so I have to run the speakers through the onboard sound.

The second problem I have is that Skype will not pick up my microphone all other programs seem to be able to record from the microphone just fine but skype does not. Ive tried selecting all the different input device options from the skype settings but none of them seem to work.

EDIT: Sound doesn't work at all in wine.

EDIT2: The X-fi card no longer shows up in the sound control panel.
