Ubuntu Installation :: Recover Unity After Gnome3 PPA Install?

Apr 29, 2011

So I glossed over the fact that installing Gnome3 from the PPA would break Unity for some reason, and now it's broken, and I can't even check it out. Is there a way to recover it and/or remove Gnome3, or is it a case of being out of luck unless I do a full reinstall?

Installing gnome3 on 11.04 kills unity and even gnome2. I heard installing gnome3 from source solves the problem, any one tried that? I want gnome3 to be alone, if I change its wallpaper I don't want gnome2 or unity wallpaper to be changed.

Ubuntu :: 64x Natty Install Using Gnome3 Ppa ( Official Ppa From Gnome3)?

May 5, 2011

I am trying to solve multiple issues with my 64x natty install using gnome3 ppa( official ppa from gnome3). I have this setup on two machines, one is a fresh install the other is a upgrade. They both have most of these issues. Here they are: 1) Nautilus will not launch from the favorites bar. It does launch from a shortcut on the desktop. It will not run from the terminal unless I am root. 2) Number lock is disabled at startup (enabled in my bios). I used to be able to enable after nattty had started, I no longer can, though num lock light is lit - number keypad does not work!

3) I have set gnome3 set to let nautilus draw the background and desktop, I get a white screen at boot until Nautilus is launched then I get a background and some desktop icons(no computer or network icons). If I plug in a usb drive the icon appears on my desktop, when I select it I loose the background and have to select it again.

4) Wireless randomly will drop the connection, have to reconnect, sometimes it will, sometimes I have to reboot. I have Fedora installed on a 2nd hard drive on the machine with a clean install and the only similarity is it displays the default desktop until I launch Nautilus, then my background and desktop are displayed with all of the icons. From there on out Fedora has none of these issues. I have used Ubuntu Gnome and XFCE as my only os since 6.0 and have never had this many problems. Both machines would not run the gdm because of Nvidia issues after the upgrade and clean install. I DO NOT want to give up on Ubuntu as I tell all my friends and family to use it.

Ubuntu :: Reverting From Gnome3 Back To Unity?

Jun 30, 2011

I reverted back from Gnome3 to Unity using ppa-purge, but now I have 2 annoying issues: The launcher reverts back to its default after login/logout. Any extra items I "Keep in launcher" are gone. The clock is stuck in 12h mode and it doesn't take any new settings. 24h clock, showing seconds etc. all fail.

I have 2 different systems affected, one 64-bit and one 32-bit (pae kernel).

Ubuntu :: Can't Install Gnome3-session?

May 14, 2011

I installed gnome-shell from the respective PPA on my 11.04 ubuntu installation and I have problems running this combination smoothly! Sometimes when I log in I get Metacity windows and no Gnome session, sometimes I get the correct Gnome3 session...I guess that somehow the packages I have installed on my system got mixed up.Anyway: when I try to "sudo apt-get install gnome3-session" I get the following error:Quote:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gnome3-session : Depends: gnome-session-bin (< 2.33) but 3.0.1-0ubuntu1~build2 is to be installed
Depends: gnome-session-common (= 2.32.1-0ubuntu20) but 3.0.1-0ubuntu1~build2 is to be installed

OpenSUSE :: GNOME3 Install On Top Of Kde And Have GNOME DE Option Show Up In Kdm

Jul 28, 2011

Im trying to install GNOME-3 on top of kde and have GNOME DE option show up in kdm. I have SUSE DVD and have set local(OD) repository priority to 80 in order to get most packages from DVD. Inspite of that YaST pulls packages from online repositories, it may be the latest version. I have 8 MbPS dsl but the YaST download speeds are around 500B. How do I change mirrors of repositories. In my opinion this has nothing to do with ipv6, I use ipv6 for openBSD and it get good browsing speeds. Im trying to set kdm4 login manager but it doesnt start after enabling for YaST-/etc/sysconfig.

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 - Gnome3 Shell Breaks On New Installation

Jun 28, 2011

I am running OpenSUSE 11.4 on my laptop and I decided to try out the Gnome 3 shell. I really like the design and I like the way it functions so I would like to keep using it, but it seems as though every time I install a new application or package it breaks Gnome 3. This is really frustrating because when I then try to log in it just gives me that cryptic error message that im sure you all have heard about "Oh No! Something went wrong!" or something like that and then it tells me to log out.

I know a fair bit about linux in general, but im no expert by any stretch of the imagination (my experiences have been with Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Linux Mint, and some older distros) so im only used to the Apt-get package manager and I find zypper to not be very understandable. So I don't know if im breaking Gnome 3 every time I install something because of some dependencies not getting installed. My laptop is running a Intel cure 2 duo processor and an Intel mobile graphics chipset (which runs gnome 3 fine normally).

OpenSUSE Install :: Gnome3 - NVidia Drivers - Multiple Monitor Fail ?

Jul 24, 2011

I have installed openSUSE with Gnome3.

I had to install the nVidia proprietary drives so the OS would boot into Gnome3 and not fail safe mode. Without the proprietary drivers installed the display settings said:

Driver: software rasterizer in use

After installing the nVidia drivers Gnome3 works in one monitor, but I would like to be able to use my other two monitors (totaling three with two video cards.)

When I run nvidia-settings to generate an xorg.conf file it hangs, so I used nvidia-xorgconf to generate the xorg file and then used nvidia-settings to configure my extra screens.

This fails with a permissions error, running sudo nvidia-settings fails with the following error:

ERROR:

So, I ran nvidia-settings, saved the settings file to my /home/$USER dir, then copied xorg.conf to /etc/X11/

Logging out and logging back into Gnome fails with the error:

This problem extends to Ubuntu running Gnome3, so my thinking is:
a) Imma id10t and something in my xorg.conf file is wrong,
b) there is an issue with Gnome3/nVidia/Multiple displays.

I would really like to use Gnome3, it works on multiple other machines (ironically all ATI devices) just not the machine I use all day long...

Here is my xorg.conf file as generated by nvidia-settings.

OpenSUSE Install :: GNOME3, Swared Swaps And "Resume"?

May 28, 2011

openSUSE 11.3 and 11.4 share a swap partition (although this presents a problem in hibernation/resumption), and have happily co-existed for some time. I just installed GNOME 3 on the 11.4 platform, with some minor problems. After shutting down 11.4 w/ GNOME3, booting of 11.3 (KDE) was somewhat messed: workspaces were reduced to one (1), window decorations were those of GNOME 2 (yes, GNOME 2 as installed on 11.3, NOT GNOME 3), and all windows were named "xxxxx (as sean)" (such as "bash (as sean)" or "gkrellm (as sean)") (where "sean" is the username). Curiously, the window background and widgets were KDE, as was the menu.

A clean logout and login seemed to restore the desktop. Assuming a fluke, I repeated the sequence, with the same results. I re-booted 11.4/GNOME 3, shut it down and re-booted 11.3 with "noresume" in GRUB, and all was as it should be.

My guess is that GNOME3 is leaving something(s) in the swap partition that is confusing 11.3 (KDE). This is not a critical problem for me, but I think it should be reported. Question: should it be reported against : a) GNOME 3, b) 11.4, c) 11.3, d) KDE 4.6 or e) all or any combination of the above ?

Ubuntu :: Unity - Mythtv Or How To Hide Unity Launcher

May 8, 2011

Just moved to Ubuntu 11.04 with unity and only have one problem...For most of my desktop needs I prefer to have the Unity Launcher up all the time (fullscreen apps don't cover it), and have set this option with ccsm.

However, when I watch mythtv, it is also under the launcher (and the top panel as well). How can I force mythtv to cover the launcher?
What I really need is a keyboard shortcut to hide the launcher, but the only shortcut is for "show launcher". (I guess the devs assumed everyone would want it hidden by default).

This, by the way is not my usual way for viewing mythtv. I have a projector attached to the desktop PC and it doesn't get a Unity Launcher by default (in Twinview), so no probs. However, occasionally I want to watch something on my computer screen, and that is when this issue arises.

Ubuntu :: Mount Iso And Install From Recover Mode?

May 22, 2011

My wife's laptop (6 year old Toshiba) has been running 10.04 for 6 months or so. It is an old and fragile computer, and yesterday it decided to freeze at the login screen (every time it is booted).

I can get into recovery mode (just command, no graphics) and all files have been backed up, but I think a fresh install is required. Long story short, we are away from home for a few months and hence I do not have access to a CD burner, and her laptop (being old) will not boot from USB.

I do however have an iso file from which I could install Ubuntu. Is it possible to mount said iso file in recovery mode and launch a fresh install from there? If so, how do I do it?

Ubuntu Installation :: How I Can Recover Windows 7

Nov 24, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 alongside my Windows 7 installation. The installation was successful, but, now when I try to boot Windows nothing happens (apart from an indefinitely blinking '_'). I tried to do startup repair from my Windows 7 DVD but it is not detecting the hard disk. When I tried to run chkdisk /f from the command prompt it said that the disk is write protected. Later, on using diskpart and list volume the only volume detected is the CD/DVD ROM.

The initial GRUB window points to /dev/sda2 for Windows 7. The Volumes snapshot from Disk Utility is attached!Any idea as to how I can recover Windows 7?
