I upgraded from Maverick a few days ago, and ever since, OpenGL effects are getting disabled by KDE with a message stating that the effects were making the machine slow. Switching to Xrender works fine, but XRender isn't as advanced as OpenGL.
I just upgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal and now I've got a purple screen of death. The download and install process all went okay, but when I restarted the computer through the upgrade dialogue to complete the installation process the system never came back online. When I turn on my computer it goes through the standard boot screen (F2 and F12 options shown while it boots the HDD, ODD, and wireless modem), and then it goes to a purple Ubuntu screen and doesn't do anything at all. I let it sit like that for 30 minutes before turning off the power and trying to boot again, but the same thing happened. I can press CTRL-ALT-DEL and the system will reboot, but nothing I know to do will get me past the purple screen and the Ubuntu logo. DI'm using a Dell Studio 1 desktop computer. It's got a 2.5ghz Pentium processer, 4gb of RAM, and a 400gb HDD. I don't dual boot, and Ubuntu is the only OS installed.
X is working, I get a desktop, all updates are current, just no Unity menus/window/widgets/whatever, blank desktop with single mapped network folder and no working keyboard shortcuts after initial login. I upgraded on Alpha 2 and it ate my desktop, never has given it back for 3 months. I assumed eventually the upgrades would fix it. Looked into ditching Unity and doing GDM, but thought I'd wait it out, ran dpkg-reconfigure unity and it did nothing, can't find any relevant errors in the logs, where should I be looking and/or what should I be doing? Running lots of servers on this box and have dual-boot, otherwise I'd probably torch it and start over.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat and I'd like to know when does the update manager upgrade the system to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal. I do not want it to do the upgrade too early,as this might cause problems.I heard they're going to release Natty by the end of April,when it passes the beta stage but it will take 3-4 months for the bugs to be fixed. Also,please answer my other thread,it has new posts: [URL]
I just upgraded to Natty Narwhal. When I first logged in a pop-up dialogue appeared saying that my computer did not fulfil the hardware requirements to run Unity. That cannot be possible this is the output of the lscpu command:
Code: Architecture: i686 CPU op-mode(s): 32-bit CPU(s): 2 Thread(s) per core: 2 Core(s) per socket: 1 CPU socket(s): 1 Vendor ID: GenuineIntel CPU family: 15 Model: 3 Stepping: 4 CPU MHz: 2999.900 L1d cache: 16K L2 cache: 1024K
This is is the output of the free command: Code: total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 1251612 916332 335280 0 74220 383576 -/+ buffers/cache: 458536 793076 Swap: 860156 0 860156
Summarized that is: Pentium 4 3GHz core running two threads 1.2GB of ram
i have lenovo g450 and has installed windows 7 ultimate for a long time ago. i want to try ubuntu natty in my lenovo with dual boot system. after loading natty disk and click on install ubuntu it said that this computer currently has no detected operating system and i have to choose erase disk and install ubuntu or something else. i have created drive c with 50 gb for dual boot.
My recently installed OS, keeps on displaying a GRUB menu instead of the normal screen and has an option of normal start up or ( I forgot what it's called but some sort of .. ) Fixing Option. It has worked before but yesterday the error wouldn't stop coming up after it randomly crashed while the computer was working. I haven't tried it again today, but will do soon. The first option of normal boot up said something like 0x01002 is in use and didn't load.
The second one occasionly came up with an option for normal boot after it had 'Fixed' it. But most times it would come up with some terminal like dialogue, then stop and not load, don't know if it crashed or what ? Hope this is enough information for you, but as I'm only 12, I don't have a clue what to do, except the obvious option of rebooting again and again.
I'm attempting to install Natty Narwhal Desktop 32-bit on my Dell Dimension 4700. I get to the screen with various options (Install Ubuntu, Test Memory, etc.) but on choosing boot from disk or install, I just get a black screen. Any ideas what might be the problem? I'm don't have much experience with Ubuntu, so a simple explanation would be preferred.
After upgrading to Natty Narwhal my Crypt Keeper app will not launch. I am now unable to access secure files. Has anyone had this issue after their upgrade to Natty Narwhal? If so, How were able to resolve this issue.
I created an installation CD and even a usb stick of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx and Natty Narwhal and I keep having freezes during installation.
1. Set my BIOS to boot on CD/ usb stick 2. My computer starts to boot from CD/ usb stick 3. Ubuntu logo plus 5 dots screen shown 4. After that I am shown a snowy green screen with white lines running lengthwise and it freezes.
I already tried creating a new CD and usb stick after re-downloading the .iso installation file and creating the process of creating an installer over and over but still the same problem. Is it a hardware problem or my installer is the problem. I tried installing my old CD of Ubuntu Jaunty that I requested from Ubuntu a long time ago and I can install it without any problems. I am using Jaunty right now...........
I just installed a test Natty VirtualBox server from the "mini" iso. After doing that the normal boot always ends with a blank screen and cannot login. The recovery boot option does work normally. After much digging around and various tests I found that the "splash quiet" boot options cause this issue.
I removed them from the /etc/defaults/grub file and ran update-grub. Next boot the login screen came up after as normal. It seems when the splash flashes that purple screen with the Ubuntu 11.04 message it is breaking something and does not get back out of some graphics mode.
This is in a VirtualBox window and I noticed that vesa framebuffers seem to be used by default in grub now. I never had this issue in previous releases and I'm just wondering if others have seen this and if there is a better fix than disabling splash. I don't mind having it disabled as this is a server install anyway and I'm fine with seeing debug messages during boot. If other have seen this then perhaps it needs to be logged as a bug?
I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 which I first upgraded 'over-the-air' to Narwhal. This completed with no errors. After reboot, the screen momentarily displays some icons before reverting to the background - this loops round every few seconds.I've subsequently tried installing with the CD which runs through with no errors, but does the same thing when it's finished - blink... blink... blink...
I've just upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04 and sorted out the mess that came along, now there's just one thing left and I'm all set. I have always used Emulate3Buttons and had it working on 10.10 earlier as well but now I can't seem to get it going.
I've edited my xorg.conf like this: Code: Section "InputDevice" # generated from default Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0" Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" EndSection Nothing happens if I write "yes" or "no" (or true/false).
i heard about that Ubuntu now finally releasing it's new version of Ubuntu distribution. It will launch on 28 april.. how to use this version on ubuntu 10.10 is there any possible strategy to switch on Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal
I've been running Ubuntu on my laptop for a while, and I recently upgraded from 10.04 in Ubuntu using System -> Admin -> Update manager. However, when I now run System -> About Ubuntu, I'm told I'm running Natty Narwhal 11.04, rather than Ubuntu 10.10 which I was aiming for. I never noticed this earlier, though... I guess it's a month or two since I upgraded.Did something go wrong in the update and cause this to happen by mistake?I there a way for me to downgrade to 10.10?
I thought before breaking my working PC, i thought id better ask the question.Is it possible to download a GDM log in theme and get it running on Natty? I've googled loads of possibilities, but got a feeling that as Natty is GDM2 it can't be done.I've downloaded Tweak and been able to change the log in wallpaper and the icon, but i want one of those fancy log in screens that ive seen on Gnome eyecandy.
I have Ubuntu 11.04 Natty and when I started it the first time it wasn't connected to the Internet. I refreshed and did the basic stuff. But it wasn't so simple. I went to Network Tools and Natty didn't recognize my router. I am not connected through Ethernet either. I can't do/can't afford to do an ethernet hookup. I don't want to spend my time running a cable to the floor below my CPU. Anyway, I have a Broadcom 4306 Network Controller. I am currently using my Windows to post. Also, I can't get drivers from Synaptic or anything (that includes NDISwrapper). Can I use Windows drivers without downloading NDISwrapper? I'm so confused and starting to think this is hopeless. Even worse: I don't have a disk for installing Ubuntu, I downloaded online alongside Windows with Wubi, Again, my network controller is a Broadcom 4306.
How do I enable wireless in Natty Narwhal? When I type in "lshw" it tells me: *-network=DISABLEDHow do I enable wireless? I'm going crazy trying to figure it out!Also, My Ubuntu has absolutely no Internet. Not even an Ethernet connection. I'm using my Windows for my Internet right now.
I would just like to inquire how some members have versions of ubuntu 11.04.I am actually posting from England,but as far as I was aware this version is not available until april of 2011.Is the source code maybe available through certain channels.Or do you guys get distros a few months before us here.Because according to my vers 10.10,I have the latest upgrade.
A couple months ago, I created a dual boot between Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 using wubi. I then upgraded to 10.10. What would usually happen is I would start up my laptop and it'll go to the Windows boot manager, letting me choose between Windows 7 and Ubuntu. If I would choose Ubuntu, it would go to a GRUB boot manager. It would let me choose between several different ways to boot Ubuntu, mainly that there were different options that were all the same except they had different numbers in the name, i.e. Ubuntu, whatever, 22.214.171.124.25 or something like that.
A couple weeks ago, I updated to 11.04. At first it worked good, but then a couple days later I updated a bunch of packages. It tried to CAT a GRUB file and failed. It gave me an error code, but I ignored it. Yesterday, I updated again, but since last time failed, it told me to do a partial upgrade. This I did, and it was successful. But now, everytime I go to GRUB and try to select any of the options, it tells me "Error: File not Found" and I cannot boot into Ubuntu. There are recovery versions for each choice, and using these I can boot into Ubuntu in low graphics mode and I can also get to a command line prompt.
I installed Natty Narwhal yesterday and everything was fine.Today, however, I installed some updates.I tried restarting my computer but it never gets to the desktop.It keeps crashing and looping back, if that makes sense.I can't start in fail-safe graphics mode either.
im using Natty right now,did an upgrade from my install of maverick...Since ive upgraded to natty, my mouse pointer seems to not like some links or some buttons like "OK" or "Cancel" or anything , like a page has 100 links , randomly say link at number 54 and number 2 wont be "clickable"..Here's the link to video : http:[url]....Ive tried removing my old mouse and using a new one ,same problems..
I recently upgraded from Maverick Meerkat to (classic) Natty Narwhal Ubuntu Linux. I am running on a Toshiba Satellite A665 (Intel i7). I use a wireless internet connection. Under Maverick, I had no issues. Under the update, I am finding that occasionally things stop working: The indicator Applet looks fine, but from a terminal, I find that I am no longer able to ping my own router (less than 10 feet away.) This behavior occurs after working fine for a few hours. I am unsure if anything in particular triggers it (I will report back if I determine a particular cause). I have a few other computers (2 running Windows, and the other Maverick Meerkat) -- and they are unaffected. Turning wireless off and on resolves the issue for me on Natty. Rebooting also works. Here's some hopefully relevant technical details about my system:
Code: ~$ rfkill list all 0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
I have installed ubuntu 11.04 on my HCL Me Laptop. The OS is not getting halted when I use the shut down or the restart menu from the GUI. It is not shutting down when used the commands 'sudo shut down now' or 'sudo poweroff now' or 'sudo halt now' or 'sudo init 0' also. Except when used the 'shut down' command, the command line hangs at:
init: plymouth-upstart-bridge main process (1981) terminated with status 1 checking for running unattended upgrades.
When used the 'shut down' command, the violet screen where the word ' ubuntu ' is written appears and hangs. I have updated my OS yesterday, but it is not fixing the problem. All the time I am using power button to have a forced shutdown. I loved the natty nerwhal.
I am having some trouble using the compiz config settings on the new "Natty Narwhal" 11.04. On 10.4, it worked seamlessly; the 3D desktop cube worked, 3D windows worked, and rotating desktop cube also worked. On Natty Narwhal, nothing works-- at all. It may seem kind of childish for me to download compiz config just for the cube, but the fact that compiz config alone isn't even working is kind of making me nervous. Though, it would be great if someone could help me with the cube.
I have a Broadcom BCM4318 that isn't working with the B43 or the other (I tried installing both and while they supposedly installed successfully, neither shows up in the Additional Drivers tab for me to enable.) I tried using both sets of directions stickied up at the top of this forum. Neither seems to be working for me (no guarantees on whether I did it right) though the B43 is apparently the one I need.Disclaimer: I'm a total newbie to using command line and a new convert from Windows so I'm rusty at navigating and making things work, though things are finally starting to make a little sense after two days of hacking at it.
