Ubuntu Installation :: Server Edition - Desktop Without Upgrades
Jan 31, 2011
I know it is possible to install a Ubuntu Server Edition and later on 'upgrade' it to a desktop edition by doing
Code: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop But, as I understood it, this installs apps like OpenOffice and such too... Now, is it possible to install the ubuntu-desktop-GUI (so, actually GNOME) without installing all of the unwanted apps Apps I actually need are pulseaudio, transmission and samba, which I prefer to install separately.
I have been setting up a box now and have it configured with everything I need and is running great.I would like to test out the netbook remix edition is there a way to install the desktop environment along site with Gnome (like I use to do with KDE)Would be great so I wouldn't have to re-configure drivers and such.To be able to switch from Gnome environment to Netbook remix environment.I am running Ubuntu 10.04.
What's the difference in terms of scalability? We would be hosting videos and FOSS collaboration tools (wiki, forums, etc.) on 4 separate servers. If I install the cloud server, I will need to install the GUI anyways. The servers are all brand new
I installed ubuntu 10.10 and everything works perfectly, but whenever I go to shutdown/restart, after showing the ubuntu logo (just like when you log in), the logo goes away, and it just hangs/freezes there.
I've tried waiting even for 10 minutes, but nothing. It there anything I can manually edit for it to just shutdown? If it helps here is my PC...
...and to be specific the WLAN module is a Ralink RT3090.
So I downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Edition and burned it to a disk. Shut off my computer and restarted it, booting from the CD Drive. It couldn't find it. So I thought maybe there was an unrecorded write error so I burned it to a second disc. Well after burning it I noticed I can't even see the disc anymore. It doesn't seem to be recognized at all. That explains why it didn't boot from CD.
But what I want to know is why on earth is it basically going invisible and not working? I've never had a problem with burning discs, especially Ubuntu stuff... So why...? Well I just booted up the CD on a different computer and it seems to be working fine. So it appears that my computer simply has ceased to see bootable discs or maybe its just non-empty discs.
I downloaded and installed the Ubuntu desktop edition and when I boot up I have the options to boot either Windows 7, or Ubuntu (so far so good), however, when I select Ubuntu I get a message saying that the following file is corrupt:
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.
Any thoughts on this? Would just re-installing it fix the problem?
I have just installed 11.04 desktop edition on a freshly built machine with a 3GHz processor and 8GB ram. It has 8GB swap space and a 250GB partition which runs along side a 750GB Windows partition. The problem is it is running incredibly slowly. The interface freezes up every few minutes and stuff takes ages to load. I have run Ubuntu on computers with less than a 1GHz processor before and it has been fine. Should I just reinstall?
I'm trying to update an Ubuntu Server install to 10.04. I believe something went wrong when I upgraded it from 8.10 to 9.10 in the past. Currently /etc/apt/sources.list would indicate the system is running 9.10, but /etc/issue says 8.10, as does lsb_release -a.
apt-get update and apt-get upgrade show everything is up to date. When I do a do-release-upgrade it tells me that there are no upgrades available.
I finally got Ubuntu server edition 10.4 LTS installed. But After the installation my computer boots and after the BIOS screen there is a blinking cursor and then the monitor says that there is no input.I am running a Dell Optiplex SX270, no modifications.
My config: PI945GZD motherboard 2 GB RAM Windows 7 UltimateMy processor supports 64 bit OS but I have not tried any. So should I download and use the 32 bit edition or the 64 bit edition.I have sound blaster 5.1(not sound blaster 5.1 live). Would it work in ubuntu?
I have a server running ubuntu 9.10 server edition. The system has a built in tv-out powered by an Intel 82865G chip. I have a television connected to that, and it works fine in console mode, but when X loads, the screen starts rolling vertically (a 10 second video clip showing exactly what I mean can be seen at [URL]).
i have win 7 ultimate running (32bit) on intel core 2 duo (64 bit) laptop.i have downloaded 32 bit version of ubuntu 10.04 and the wubi today. my win is running on C drive (primery partition). i have not enough space in c drive. can i install ubuntu in E drive
I bought a magazine "Ubuntu User" that comes with the 9.10 DVD (32- & 64-bit) to avoid heavy download.
1. What is the biggest benefit of the DVD versus the CD ? Having more software on the disc right ? But how can I install additional SW without downloading ? 2. I want to install a Home Server from the DVD but I don't know how to select the server edition to install ? Do I still need to download the CD image for the server edition ? I want to be able to select one or more of the automatic server installation scripts e.g. LAMP.
But when i try the Ubuntu Server Edition, using the same method of burning the iso file i downloaded from ubuntu homepage into a cd, and when i reboot my pc and the screen display the following:ISOLINUX 3.63 Debian 2008-07-15 Copyright (c) 1944-2008 H. Peter Anvin Loading...Initializing gfx codeand it hang there.Do anyone know what happened? I have verified the file i download and the disc i burnt through MD5SUM.

So I installed UNR10.10 on my netbook and im not really happy with unity. so i thought i would just log into the normal gnome version and customize it to my liking. from the login screen i choose "Ubuntu-Desktop-Edition" and log in. But the screen just shows my wallpaper...nothing else...i cant call up a terminal, dont get any right click options, nothing. How can i enable the normal desktop interface on the 10.10 Netbook version
OpenSuSE 11.1 updated on Saturday to all of the latest patches and stuff. I was a bit behind, so quite a few things got updated. Most of them probably don't matter for this problem.
Prior to Saturday, desktop effects were working fine. After, they don't. Gnome still works ok, but attempting to go in to the "Desktop Effects" configuration just hangs for a minute (spinning "wheel" cursor) then nothing happens ("arrow" cursor returns).
Looking at things via "ps ax" I can see that clicking on "Desktop Effects" starts process(/usr/bin/python /usr/bin/simple-ccsm).
Running this from a CLI produces:
After which nothing happens and I have to hunt down the PID and kill it.
Searching for this "tuple index out of range" error, I found a couple of 2008 references, but those are for much older version so I'm thinking that they're probably not relevant. Nothing else seems to apply.
Where can I get a good copy of Ubuntu desktop edition. I have a cd of Ubuntu 10.04 but it will not load on my machine. This same cd did load at one time on the same computer.Every time I download ubuntu and check the MD5 files they do not match.
I'm trying to setup my Ubuntu 9.10 laptop to host a small website that I can practice and learn stuff with and I'm a little stuck at the minute.
I have got Apache2 and the LAMP stack installed okay, along with phpMyAdmin and can give my external IP to anyone with the http:// and anyone can view my website that way but what I want to do is have my IP resolve into a domain name like ooloo-website.net but I don't know how to do this.
Is there any way that I can do this like register my IP to a free DNS and domain website without buying a domain or using one of those free ones like ooloo.webhost.net or do I need to host everything myself like DNS and the domain? Can I even do all of this myself?
I am running Lucid Lynx, Desktop Edition on an asus eee 1005ha netbook. i've noticed a strange issue. there are two accounts i've setup, one admin and one normal user. when i click on logout and login as admin and then boot into the admin desktop and then click on logout again, i get a blank screen and nothing happens. i have to remove the battery and restart the system to get it running again.
When in kubuntu netbook edition 10.04 I select an activity as Desktop, the plasma button dissapears, also I can't add items or lock the desktop widgets. I can drop folders and create icons. Can make them smaller but when I do it I can't make them bigger again!
