Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Lost After Closing Laptop After 9.10 Upgrade

Jan 16, 2010

I have an odd problem in that my wireless connection is okay until I close the laptop. When I open it back up, I'm unable to reconnect. This problem first occurred after upgrading to 9.10. I can reconnect after restarting. I tried several things before breaking down and reinstalling 9.04. After installing 9.04, everything works great. Any suggestions on what is going on before I try upgrading to 9.10 again? I have a Dell D600.

Ubuntu Installation :: After 10.10 Upgrade, Lost G++-4.1?

Oct 19, 2010

I upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 and everything went smoothly EXCEPT that g++-4.1 and all its dependencies were uninstalled, and now it's nowhere to be found in Synaptic Package Manager. How can I get g++-4.1 back??

ps. I know that I can download source and build it manually, but there has to be a more "Ubuntu-ish" way of doing it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Gimp On Upgrade

Jan 28, 2010

I recently upgraded to koala, but gimp no longer functioned after upgrade; i.e. open file popup dialogue freezes, crop tool is non-functional, preferences dialogue was absolutely a blank box. Tried un-install/re-install thru both the new software center and synaptic. Same broken result every time. Tried a direct download from gimp.org but ran into a lot of dependency stuff I know nothing about; I'm an end user, not a coder. So, how do I get a functioning install of gimp?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 8.04 To 9.10 Lost Share Name

Feb 9, 2010

I upgraded my desktop computer from 8.04 to 9.10 last night.

The second HD, which contains all of my music, used to mount as:

/media/disk/AllMusic

Now it mounts as:

/media/d7c7179f-d775-49ff-889e-661d6d188452/AllMusic

So the music player applications can't find the music, and neither can the other computers on my home network.

Ubuntu won't let me rename it.

How can I fix this and restore this shared drive?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Grub After XP To Win 7 Upgrade

May 29, 2010

I keep finding the same fixes on the web and they are not working. What I have/what I did: I have a dual boot PC. HD0 was XP. HD1 Kubuntu 10.04. I upgraded XP to Win 7. This jacked my Grub up, now all I can load is Win 7. I don't see the Grub menu anymore. I've been trying to reinstall Grub using varoius web pages like: [URL]

They seem to all be telling me the same thing but not working. I boot into a liveCD. I have to sudo apt-get install grub then I can do sudo grub. I follow the instructions:
sudo grub
> root (hd0,0)
> setup (hd0)
I get "Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition".

Now if I'm understanding this right the reason for that is. HD0,0 is my first HD first partition (which is Win 7), and grub doesn't like windows. I tried swapping it out so it reads:
sudo grub
> root (hd1,0)
> setup (hd1)
I then quit and reboot. Win 7 loads. I don't see Grub.I am using 2 separate hard drives?

Ubuntu Installation :: All Files Lost After Upgrade

Apr 29, 2011

My apt-get was really really slow since the installation of 10.10. Doing downloads at 100~2000 B/s.So,I decided to upgrade the Ubuntu version by the CD, a big mistake by the way.Near end, the installation got crashed and frozen. Over 3 hours on same command line.Then, I hardly rebooted the system to get in the OS, and it works. BUT all data within /etc and /var IS GONE! My whole life was in "/var/www" and "/var/lib/mysql" and that is gone too.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 9.04 To 9.10: Lost Network Manager

Jan 16, 2010

This is my fourth on-line upgrade from Gutsy (started with Dapper ...) all the previous one went without a hitch !

So I was pretty confident this afternoon upgrading my Lenovo laptop from 9.04 to 9.10.

At one point during the install, I got error messages and was offer to do a "Partial Install". I accepted, different things happened, rebooted. Update manager came on with again the partial update pop-up. Accepted it again, it downloaded more files, rebooted, partial upgrade window again but it failed immediately.

The network connection was gone, clicking on the network icon I got a message that the network manager is not running.

I cannot check or uncheck the "network unabled" choice.

However, 9.10 is running, slow and weird, but no network connection so I cannot try to finish the "partial upgrade"

Every time I reboot the Update manager pops up.

Trying to boot any previous version in "grub" fails right away saying it is unable to mount the drives ...

Is there a way to start the Network Manager from a terminal ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Sound After Upgrade 10 Mins Ago?

Aug 11, 2011

I've just done an upgrade after noticing the Update manager thingee at the bottom of the screen. I was listening to my music when I noticed it.

I did the Restart now after upgrading. Now I have no sound at all. Checked headphones were turned up which they were. Checked sound settings and found there were no Devices in Hardware and Input and a Dummy Output (stereo) listed in Output. I would have thought that my onboard sound would have shown up as well as the sound bits on my HDMI card - not that I've ever managed to get sound out of my telly via the HDMI cable. (I do have Alsa sound installed).

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Gone Wrong May Have Lost Important Files

Aug 27, 2010

I have had Hardy Heron 8.04 since 2008. Few problems, but when the red arrow indicated updates I clicked on it and it was for an upgrade to 10.04.I decided to upgrade but it didn't go well.I ended up with a black screen and white letters. I didn't know what to do.I don't know many commands.I posted here but got no response.I had no access to the Internet.I decided to reinstall Ubuntu 8.04 from the CD.At one point it asked me about a 10GB partition.I didn't really understand it at that point but clicked ok.When I got the computer running again I noticed that it was a new partition with 7 GB free space.What happened to all my precious other files?

I am panicking because I read a similar thread about a Windows/Ubuntu partition and the person was worried about losing all Windows files.I did back up the files on an external hard drive but not recently. Losing them would mean I had to make up a lot of work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Access To Home After Clean Upgrade?

Oct 25, 2010

I used to use Ubuntu 9.10 for a year. I had my home path on different partition (19Gb) than the system partition (12Gb). Before I upgraded, the free space on Home partition (19Gb) was 6.3Gb. I knew that the direct upgrade is not good, so, I format the system partition (12Gb). Then, I install clean version of Ubuntu 10.04 on it. every thing is great. except that, I can not find my files in the old home path. In same time, Ubuntu is telling me that the Home partition (19Gb) (which I have not touch at all) has free space of 6.3Gb and used space of 11.3Gb. It means it can recognize that there is something but it can not open it at all.

system information:

Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid)
Gnome 2.30.2
2.6.32-25-generic

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Gui In Jaunty/kde3 To Maverick Upgrade?

Jun 14, 2011

I seem to have made a hash of moving a machine from jaunty to maverick. It used the kde3 remix, and pearson's site seems to be bouncing up and down, mostly down, for that at the moment. I've ended up with a machine that is console only. I've tried installing ubuntu-standard, which put a bunch of things on, but still no GUI.

staying with KDE3 would be nice, but I don't have time to mess with it. I find KDE4 painful, and have been put off by the ideological "purity" that caused the gnome split since its inception. I guess that leaves me with Unity. But how do I get the bloody thing up. Heck, xdm & fvwm sounds pretty good right now, too.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Access To Encrypted Home After Upgrade?

I just tried reinstalling ubuntu 11.04 from the live disc, installation went well but afterwards I cannot get access to my home directory which is encrypted and I stupidly forgot to note the mount passphrase. is there anything I can do? where would the mount passphrase be stored from the previous installation and is there any chance of recoving it. Home and the root are on the same drive and the installation did not format the drive.

Ubuntu Installation :: Pimlico Tasks List Lost During Upgrade To 11.04

I was using Pimlico Tasks manager with Ubuntu 10.10 [URL]. Yesterday I did an Ubuntu upgrade and all seemed to go OK, but today when I opened Tasks... my list was all empty! All tasks gathered for many months all lost! How could this happened? Isn't Ubuntu supposed to mantain all configs and personal data? And more important - is there any way I can recover my task list?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Emails , Bookmarks And Pictures After Upgrade To Lucid / Need Back

May 5, 2010

I upgraded from Karmic to Lucid (Ubuntu 10.04) a few days ago (without backing up any data first). At first everything seemed fine but yesterday three things happened:

1. All my emails and address book have disappeared in Thunderbird. When I started Thunderbird, it took me through the wizard and seems to have overwritten my profile with a new one. There is only one profile in the Thunderbird folder and it seems to contain no emails and only a new, blank address book (the small size of the folder backs this up. I searched the hard drive but found no other emails or address book files.

2. My bookmarks have disappeared from Google Chrome. Again, it seems to have created a new, blank bookmark file. The bookmark.bak file is similarly blank and when I search I can find no other bookmark files.

3. The Pictures folder (in the home folder) is now empty; suggesting that ubuntu has either overwritten the Pictures folder with a new blank folder or deleted all the files in it. Again, when I search the hard drive for jpg files, it doesn't find any of the pictures that were in the Pictures folder.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless - Lost It - 'wmaster0 No Wireless Extensions', But Then Refers To Wlan0 As The Wireless Connection

Mar 28, 2010

A friend who switched ISP's gave me his old Linksys WRT54-G wireless router. I went through the installation procedure and had a wireless connection up and running - smiley face. I had security set up for WPA, and decided to upgrade it to WPA2. Another smiley face. When I went to connect (had already done so successfully), I noticed it referred to my wireless as Linksys - I was expecting to see the SSID. So I started playing around in Network Manager and now I have things all effed up.

Don't know exactly what I did, but now I have no wireless. So I ran a few commands (lshw -C network, iwconfig, ifconfig, and iwlist scan), and looking at the results I see what appear to be inconsistencies in the output. I've posted them below, and make the following observations:

1. Under the lshw it refers to my wireless connection logical name as wmaster0, and has the correct MAC address, etc.

2. Under the iwconfig it says, 'wmaster0 no wireless extensions', but then refers to wlan0 as the wireless connection (although it does not seem to be running).

3. Under ifconfig I see both a wlan0 and a wlan0:avahi. The wlan0 has no IP, the wlan0:avahi does, but it is incorrect.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wireless Does Not Autostart In NetworkManager (Lucid) After Kernel Upgrade

Jun 18, 2010

Recently, I installed a fresh 64bit Lucid Lynx on my Lenovo B450 laptop (previously on Mint8 64bit, based on Karmic). It's been really nice and speedy except for one thing - USB transfers to thumb drives and external hard drives were really slow (just like in the older Ubuntu releases). I had found some forum discussions on a fix to this by way of a kernel upgrade so I decided to go for it.

Went ahead and downloaded the kernel DEBs from [URL] and installed them. Voila! USB speed issue was fixed! Everything else seemed to work fine, except for some minor troubles with burning CDs and DVDs (I think I need to upgrade the drive's firmware - pretty bad situation as the update only runs on Windows).

However, the one 'bug' or 'annoyance' I noticed straight away was that my wireless wouldn't autostart after booting into the OS with the new 2.6.34-020634-generic (x86_64) kernel. I'd have to right-click on the NetworkManager icon on the notification tray and left-click '[ ] Enable Wireless' to flag the checkbox and my wireless would come right up and work ok (WPA2 at home, WEP at the office). Not a major problem, but this has been pretty irritating to say the least.
