General :: Triggered Process - Start Automatically When The Desktop Finishes Loading

Jun 29, 2011

I am running Debian Squeeze with icewm as desktop environment. I am trying to start feh automatically when the desktop finishes loading. I have tried crontab -e with @reboot /usr/bin/feh /home/user/photos/ & I think that the best way to do this would be to monitor for the x-session-manag process. The reason I think this would be a good solution is that I killed x-session-manag and it killed my x-session and straight to command line interface.

Ubuntu Installation :: Fail Installation, Now Windows Blue Screen Of Death?

Mar 9, 2011

I just finishing burning ubuntu on my laptop and was getting ready to partition my disk to allow space for ubuntu. I restarted my computer and when it was restarting ubuntu logo came up (as it booted from the disc). I was not wanting to install it at this moment so i was waiting for it to load then cancel it(just like a windows installation).It then froze and became pixelated with green and white colours.I thought it was nothing maybe just an error in teh disc. I waited 5-10 minutes then held the power button to shut it off. I then went to settings in the bios and changed it to boot from hdd first. After restart, windows began to load for like 3 seconds then blue screen. I dont know what went wrong or why this is happening.During installation of Ubuntu on my second try I keep getting:sudo: can't read /etc /sudoers: Input/Output errorsudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quittingWhat are the odds of me still having my windows 7 data?and could Hiren's boot cd help?

Debian :: Iceweasel: Site Never Finishes Loading?

Dec 28, 2010

When using Iceweasel to go to an on line classified site (Kijiji) the page seems like it never finishes loading. The circulating thing in the tab never stops rotating.

I wouldn't worry about it but after I get a bunch of tabs opened it will freeze Iceweasel.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Forgetting Desktop Settings And Not Loading Icons?

May 11, 2010

Since I've upgraded to 10.04 from 9.10 my computer has started acting strange. First of all, it keeps forgetting my wallpaper. Most of the time, not all of the time. Another problem is that the power-button in the upper right corner does not appear at every boot. It seems to be forgetting other settings as well from time to time.

What I belive might be causing this problem is that I mount my home directory from a server, and a wild guess is that it is somehow a random order of the startup sequence, so that some features are loaded before the mounting is complete.

Ubuntu Installation :: Compiz Installed Incorrectly - No Desktop Loading

Apr 30, 2011

I have been doing some research on problems I have been having and I have narrows Compiz down to being the problem. I am running the prop Nvidea driver. I can use Unity 2d fine however I cannot use Unity at all I just get a blank screen with the mouse cursor no desktop ever loads. I have tried switching between gdm and kdm. I have now worked out that compiz looks like the problem. If I issue a compiz --replace at the terminal I get the same sort of problem I get when I log into the Unity 3d. I loose my left hand monitor (it goes black but I can move my mouse around) and on my right hand monitor I can operate things using the keyboard but when you click with the mouse it does not work although you can move it around fine. Never used Compiz and I dont know if anyone knows any troubleshooting I can try I have exhausted what I could find on the Internet (A few exports of global variables but none fixed anything).

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Acer Aspire One Fail - Resize The Windows 7 (dreadful OS)?

Nov 6, 2010

I tried to install ubuntu 10.10 NBR on an acer aspire one and the install crashed, it is a known problem but my main problem is that the 250gb SATA is partitioned in two and then i deleted linux swap and the ubuntu 10.10 partition to make free space.

a) how can i resize the windows 7 (dreadful OS) to what size it originally was
b) if i install an older version of ubuntu (10.04) will it boot up as if i chose the partition alongside other OS or will i have to install a bootloader (I have never done a specify partitions install)
C) is it that acer aspire one's cant load any version of ubuntu (I know a mad idea as ubuntu has many drivers and should work with it.)

General :: Auto-mount Virtual Machine Locations When VMware Image Finishes Loading?

Jun 20, 2011

I mount a few locations from a VMware virtual machine, but currently every time I start up VMware I need to re-mount the locations once the VMware image has started up fully, which gets tedious. I'd like to be able to mount them automatically when VMware is started.

I generally double-click the .VMX file (which is associated with VMware Player) to launch the virtual machine, but once it has finished loading I would need to run the mount commands manually or execute a bash script that does it.

Is there any way you can think of to have it done automatically? One way I can think of is to start my virtual machine by running a script that starts VMware player, sleeps for a minute or so, then runs the mount command - but setting the right sleep interval would be difficult because this varies a fair bit - and overall, it's a solution that's kinda icky and that I'd like to avoid if there's some better option.

Fedora Installation :: Will Windows XP Fail If Put In A Partition In The Free Space

Nov 5, 2009

I now have Windows XP installed, with 30GB of free space on the end of my hard rive. If I install linux there, will it cause Windows XP to fail? Last time I tried this, it says hal.dll was not found. However, that may have been caused by having five partitions. Do u think its safe now that I'll only have 4? Will Windows XP fail if I put in a partition in the free space?

Why does it says I'm using Safari in Windows, I'm using Google Chrome

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows 7 Installer Does Not Loading

Mar 21, 2010

I use to have vista and ubuntu on my PC. Yesterday accidentally I created a new partition "table" the point is that I erased all my partitions on "MyDisk". After a while I decided to re-install ubuntu ( 9.10 karmic koala ) and take advantage of the situation and upgrade to Windows7. Since I already had the ubuntu cd, I installed it first, then downloaded the Win7 cd to install it. The problem is that Windows7 installer doesn't load.

All I get is:
Grub loading.
Ubuntu logo
ubuntu login

So I don't know whats wrong. Right now my disk looks like this:
MyDisk >
MyDisk1 ntfs ( For windows 7 )
MyDisk2 > extended (using linux with 2 more partitions: ext4 and linux-swap)

Ubuntu Installation :: Chain-loading Windows 7 After 10.04?

Jul 10, 2010

I've recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 it installed and chain-loaded correctly however I installed it on partition that was too small so I used gParted to copy the files 1:1 to a freed up partition.The result was it copied fine but the Grub file became messed up.

I had to manually reinstall Grub2 from the LiveCD and the Linux was starting up fine, however now I'm unable to boot to Windows.Is there an easy way to reinstall/re-chain the Windows bootloader so its able to chain-load from Grub.

Ubuntu Installation :: PXE Install Finishes, But No Subsequent Booting?

May 5, 2010

I have a Toshiba Satellite A55-S106 with a bad CD-ROM. It can't boot to USB, so I've taken to doing PXE installs.I had done a PXE install for 9.10. After the install, GRUB told me that it couldn't find the UUID. I was able to edit the grub config file and remove references to the UUID and it booted okay.I tried to do an upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04. The whole upgrade finished, and upon rebooting I saw the purple Ubuntu screen with the red dots, then a blank screen and no hard drive activity. I'm able to read the drive in a LiveCD Environment, but I can't figure out how to make it boot yet.

Fearing for the drive, I put a second hard drive in the laptop and installed 10.04 fresh, again using PXE. Same deal -- install finishes, purple screen, then blank screen and no hard drive activity.Here's a video of the laptop in action:v=T0VgfOA05T0 -- the status lights from left to right are "plugged in", "power on", and "hard drive".I feel like this is probably the same issue as before -- where I should go into GRUB and fix the issue, but I can't figure out how to get into GRUB in 10.04!Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be going on? I have some data on the first hard drive that I'd like -- not irreplaceable, but it would save me some time if I could get the drive to boot. (I apparently said "yeah, encrypting my home directory sounds like a great idea

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Hangs After Fsck Finishes?

May 10, 2010

I just installed 10.04 from the minimal install cd (twice), and when I boot it up, it runs fsck on the 3 partitions, shows they are clean, and then nothing. I can't even get to recovery mode. I had previously installed 9.10 fine on this computer. I can't even find out what the real problem is, even with the quiet splash disabled. It just stops after successfully running fsck.

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows Destroys Grub And It Stops Loading?

Feb 15, 2010

I installed Windows XP and then Ubuntu on the remaining disk. However, each time I go back to windows, windows decides to destroy grub and it stops loading, then I have to use a rescue disk and do a grub-install again. It's annoying to have to do this everytime I go to windows. Is there a way to avoid windows to destroy grub? Or install grub on a place windows cannot touch?

Debian Installation :: Windows Get Stuck On Logo Screen Or Safe Mode Loading Files

Nov 19, 2014

Naturally a Windows user, because all of my computers were with pre-installed Windows and I was young.. and I get used to it..In the time of.. growing up I became programmer and learnt how bad is actually Windows coded. Not only that.. Linux has better support for developers.So.. I was Windows user till yesterday. I finally decided to work on Installing Linux or more specifically - Debian.I love everything part of the GNU - GIMP, GTK+, Gedit, GCC...

Well I can't use my PC, both of my operation systems are non-functional.Windows get stuck (which is something completely typical for Microsoft stuff) on Windows logo screen, or safe mode loading files..Debian installation is messy.Firstly I installed Debian 6.0 on a Virtual DVD Disc mounted. I followed the installation process strictly and move forward to Debian startup.It asked me for account. root as "username" and the password as "password" didn't work so I logged in as "localhost" normal user.

However.. I started to realize that I actually also had to install the Graphical Environment in order to have Debian with the desired GNOME Desktop.. I went to aptitude to install the Graphic Environment Package but it said that I have no root rights.. I tried to log-in again, using the correct details but failed.I tried to get in, using the sudo command, but the sudo command also didn't work. Of course.. since I can't install packages, I can't either install sudo."su -" or "su" also prompt me to select a password which I apparently have no clue of.

Then I went to Debian Recovery, because there I was logged as root. It also pointed out that "Root Account is locked". I went to install packages finally.. But when the installation started to proceed It asked me for disk insertion in a specific folder?There I got lost completely.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation Fail - Removing Gdm-guest-session ?

Feb 7, 2010

I just downloaded the latest version of Ubuntu and went to install it on a Pentium 4 desktop that previously had XP on it. I get the main setup screen where it allows you several options including installation. Once I select installation, it appears to be installing but then comes up with a message that includes the following: "removing gdm-guest-session" It will not do anything else and the machine appears to go into sleep mode. When I try to shut it down, it appears that the kernel had loaded. Any ideas why the normal installation isn't continuing?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation On External Hard Drive Fail

Jan 10, 2011

My original intention was to install a distribution of Ubuntu onto an external hard drive so i can use it on different computers. I first downloaded and burned a copy of Ubuntu 10.10 and booted my Acer laptop to it. I then plugged in my external hard drive and tried to install ubuntu onto it by partitioning the external hard drive. After I did that, I booted from the external hard drive on my laptop and it ran the new distribution i created. However, when I tried to boot it from a different computer it said something like "partition not found." So the next time I tried to install ubuntu onto the external hard drive with out partitioning it, using the entire drive. This is what started to cause problems.

Now when I start up my laptop without the external hard drive plugged in i get "error: no such device: xxxx..... grub rescue>. When I start it up with the hard drive plugged in a grub comes up with the new installation, my old ubuntu installation, and my old windows vista.

Fedora Installation :: 13 Installation DVD - Some Random .rpm File Could Not Be Found

Aug 23, 2010

I have attempted to download and burn the fedora 13 i386 installation DVD twice, however, both DVDs that I burned failed during installation. I verified the .iso before burn and the dvd before installation and in both cases they were fine. But during installation, I received error messages that some random .rpm file could not be found (for each attempt it was different). All other configuration went fine, this only happened after the final package selection and when the actual installation starts.

EDIT: I am burning the DVD on my mac book pro using disk utility but performing the installation on a Toshiba Satellite.

Fedora Installation :: NVIDIA 9500GT Installation Fail?

Oct 14, 2010

When I install NVIDIA Driver 9500GT on my Fedora 13 (64 bits), they ask me to install "gcc" package. And the "gcc" package itself needs more dependencies. I managed to install all of those dependencies, except "libc.so.6"

I couldn't find the "libc.so.6" on internet. It looks like the "libc.so.6" and "Glibc" package the same or what?

Installation :: Install Windows From A Ubuntu Desktop?

Feb 4, 2011

Recently my moms computer crashed and I'm trying to fix it I'm pretty much finished but, I installed Ubuntu via live CD, I thought that would be fine with her but, no, she hates Ubuntu and she wants windows back.

The only problem is her CD-Rom drive is now broke and none of her usb ports work. So I'm wondering if there is a way to install Windows 7 without a USB or CD from inside Ubuntu?

I've found ways to do it from inside windows, but never from inside Ubuntu, any ideas?

OpenSUSE Install :: Finishes The "Performing Installation" Process Then The Screen Goes Blank?

Mar 11, 2010

The graphical install goes fine all the way up until it finishes the "Performing Installation" process. Then the screen goes blank. Tried each display option for the install, and finally the text option got me through to completion.So now I've gotten to the command line, and when i try to startkde, i get the message "$DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to the X server."I'm not well versed in linux yet, so a lot of these messages don't yet mean much to me. In the course of messing around with this I'm getting the feeling that it's Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 that's causing the problem here.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Desktop - Windows Drive Will Not Mount

Mar 20, 2011

New 10.10 desktop installation on an Acer Aspire 5515 32 bit Vista Home Basic/ 3 GB RAM. There was no option during the Ubuntu installation to select the Windows partition/drive for access via the Ubuntu installation, and the drive does not now appear in "Places." The reason I used 10.10 was because the 10.04 installation on the same machine also would not allow mounting of the Windows drive. However, there was an option to select the Windows drive during the 10.04 install. Couple of things I noticed that were "different."

1) During the 10.04 installation (over which the 10.10 install now resides) there was an option to select either or both of the two user accounts - both administrative - in the Vista installation. I hadn't noticed that before on previous installations. I choose both accounts for later importing, but, again, there was no option to mount the drive upon the finished Ubuntu installation.

2) There could be an issue with what I did with the partition/naming on the Vista installation. Upon restoring to factory settings, I deleted the (10 GB!) restore partition and resized Vista to occupy the newly opened space. But the GRUB entry for Vista says "Windows Recovery Environment" instead of "Windows" or whatever it usually does.

Everything else about this dual-boot installation system is just fine: everything boots and updates and so forth. But I really need that Windows drive to mount so that my friend's kids can import iTunes and other files from Windows to Ubuntu. I also want to be able to run Avast scans on Windows from Ubuntu. I did rummage around a bit by way of locating a solution for this problem, but I can't find anything which "works" or is on point.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation Of 9.10 Resulted In Quirky Boot Loading?

Jan 4, 2010

So, the quick and dirty: I installed Ubuntu 8.04 early last year and stuck with it until some of the bugs had been worked out of 9.10, after which I did a clean installation of it. During installation, I remember being asked about keeping a back-up for my previous 8.04 installation and I selected yes (figuring better safe than sorry). So, despite uninstalling 8.04 within Vista before installing 9.10, I now (oddly) am able to boot into either Vista, Ubuntu 8.04 OR Ubuntu 9.10. Aesthetics aside, I don't much care that 8.04 is still present. Installing 9.10 complicated the bejesus out of my boot process though. It currently boots as such:

First screen options:
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 8.04 (safe)
