Ubuntu Installation :: Theme Doesn't Work

Oct 11, 2010

Upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 using standard Update Manager procedure. Now themes don't work. When I change the theme, the window decorations change accordingly, but the contents of the windows (controls, panels) are in the raw X look (I don't know how else to put it) and do not change regardless of theme selection. I've tried customizing the theme and selecting something different on the "Controls" tab, but it doesn't work.

X is working properly with Nvidia driver, Compiz is working properly as well. Killing Compiz didn't help with the theme problem.I used 64-bit Lucid, so I guess it upgraded to 64-bit Maverick.

OpenSUSE :: QTCurve Theme Doesn't Work For GTK Apps All Of A Sudden

May 13, 2010

I want to use my QTCurve theme for GTK apps. This has worked great for several months on opensuse 11.2, and suddenly it broke. I do not know what made it broke, purhaps some kind of system update...The gtk-Qtcurve engines are installed (both 32 and 64 bit). I tried linking the gtkrc file from /usr/share/themes/QtCurve/gtk-2.0 towards /etc/gtk-2.0 but that didn't help either. I can change the GTK themes to whatever theme, except to QTCurve...

Ubuntu :: Theme Doesn't Always Load On Login?

Mar 5, 2010

When I log in locally, sometimes my theme isn't applied. This problem started a few weeks ago, but before that the same theme would load just fine every time. In order to get my chosen theme to load, I go System > Preferences > Appearance. As soon as I click "Appearance"...boom. My theme loads and all is fine. I don't have to change settings or anything....just start the "Appearance" utility.

This doesn't all of the time, only sporadically. Another thing to mention is that I'm using AWN. When this happens, AWN doesn't load all of the launchers. I killall and restart AWN and all is good there. Anybody have a clue what could be going on? Compiz related?

Ubuntu :: Theme Doesn't Load Properly

Apr 11, 2010

Sometimes when I log on, I find that the theme (specifically the window borders and icons) didn't load properly, and that I instead get a set of grayish window borders (Raleigh, I believe) and the gray GNOME icons. Sometimes the window borders corrects itself, but the icons stay the same. Reloading compiz doesn't help, and the only solution I found was to logoff/logon.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Doesn't Work On Computer?

Jun 1, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 doesn't seem to work on my computer. When I install it (tried both CD, DVD and USB-stick) all I see is "Ubuntu" with a number of dots underneath, and after a while the screen turns black.I also tried the alternative ISO (with non-graphical interface), and that installation worked; I could partition the HD, enter username and password and it copied all files to the HD. But when it said it was finnished, and I rebooted the computer (without the installation media) "Ubuntu" shows on screen with a nuber of dots underneath, and after a while the screen turns black.The computer is new, has an i5-750 CPU, 4GB RAM and a XFX Radeon 5670 1GB graphics adapter and two identical HD:s, one with a working Windows 7 installation (disconnected when I try installing Ubuntu).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Amarok Doesn't Use Gnome Theme

Oct 13, 2010

I use amarok because I like it much better than rythmbox or any other gnome music app. Now there is one problem, I use a dark color theme under gnome but amarok stays light, and I can't use custom colors as in amarok14. Now my question is how can I make amarok use my gnome theme, or at least give also a dark look? nd is it possible to show only the lyrics on my desktop?

Ubuntu Installation :: Stop Promoting U9.10 It Doesn't Work / Fix It?

Feb 24, 2010

Every time I've tried to install 9.10, it will not run. I get "Grub - " and it just hangs there. I shouldn't have to deal with that. Why can't I just have a happy install like usual? 9.10 / Grub2 is not stable and it needs fixing. Grub2 sucks. It's in beta and no-one tells you that unless you do some looking. I've tried to fix it, can't. Linux really sucks for me right now.

Ubuntu Installation :: Enigmail Doesn't Work With SeaMonkey?

May 19, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 amd64 on a laptop for my parents. They use SeaMonkey with Enigmail for their e-mail. They complained that they couldn't read their e-mail.

I did apt-get install enigmail.
Here are the versions that are installed:
enigmail 2:0.95.7-1ubuntu2
seamonkey 1.1.17+nobinonly-0ubuntu1

Unfortunately, enigmail didn't show up in SeaMonkey. I looked at the files it installed. It looks like it only points Thunderbird at enigmail, but not SeaMonkey.

How do I get enigmail to work with SeaMonkey? Is there another package I can install? Or do I have to manually move around the files?

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi On D: Partition Doesn't Work?

Jun 13, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 with WUBI. In the setup wizard in windows, I selected the D partition to install Ubuntu on. It extracted the files, and after a reboot, and selecting Ubuntu, the Ubuntu setup wizzard appeared. After it was done, it rebooted. I selected Ubuntu, and this appeared on my screen:


booting from (hd0,0)...

And there it stucks! I tried editing C:oot.ini, to let it select the ubuntu files.

My original boot.ini file:

[boot loader]


I have very little space on my system partition (C:) So, I installed it on D:. I'm using Windows XP Professional SP2.

Ubuntu Installation :: Disk Utility Doesn't Work?

Jun 28, 2010

I found it is impossible to format partition during Ubuntu 10.04 installation.
My storage configuration is as following. 1TB (500GB X 2) AHCI RAID 0 (it is said fake raid) and covers below 4 partitions.

/dev/mapper/pdc_dgbbagea1 9621688 5872752 3260168 65% /
/dev/mapper/pdc_dgbbagea4 945587172 95673304 802259056 11% /home
/dev/mapper/pdc_dgbbagea3 9698380 1363364 7846240 15% /opt
Partition 2 is swap partition and root partition is ext3 original.

Since there is no enough space for upgrading, I try to format root partition and install a complete pure new OS. After I booting up system from Live or Alternative disk, I try to switch root partition from file system ext3 to ext4 and format it. However, Formating process always get failed after couple trying. Even I quit installation and use tools "Disk Utility" to check and adjust partition information. It reports device is busy.

Ubuntu Installation :: Make Localmodconfig Doesn't Work

Aug 23, 2010

The announcement of several new make scripts in the 2.6.32 release notes is very exciting.Most people uses the kernel shipped by distros - and that's good. But some people like to compile their own kernels from kernel.org, or maybe they like following the Linux development and want to try it. Configuring your own kernel, however, has become a very difficult and tedious task - there're too many options, and some times userspace software will stop working if you don't enable some key option. You can use a standard distro .config file, but it takes too many time to compile all the options it enables.

To make easier the process of configuration, a new build target has been added: make localmodconfig. It runs "lsmod" to find all the modules loaded on the current running system. It will read all the Makefiles to map which CONFIG enables a module. It will read the Kconfig files to find the dependencies and selects that may be needed to support a CONFIG. Finally, it reads the .config file and removes any module "=m" that is not needed to enable the currently loaded modules. With this tool, you can strip a distro .config of all the unuseful drivers that are not needed in our machine, and it will take much less time to build the kernel. There's an additional "make localyesconfig" target, in case you don't want to use modules and/or initrds.

Ubuntu Installation :: VirtualBox & Remastersys Doesn't Work

Nov 8, 2010

VirtualBox: So, with VB, testing out stuff without messing up your actual operating system (in my case Linux). (I had more to say but can't remember atm) Remastersys: Well, I think I MIGHT have a reason as to why Remastersys doesn't work for me. I think I might have downloaded the wrong repository thing. I downloaded:


I ask because of the word Lucid is in the sentence. What do you all think, should I un-install remastersys and downloaded the one with the word Lucid in it and see if that makes a difference as to whether the program makes a proper .iso file or not?

Ubuntu Installation :: Keyboard Doesn't Work After Boot ?

Apr 29, 2011

I have been working on this problem for a year now. It is becoming critical because I need to upgrade Linux. I really want Ubuntu.

Keyboard works fine at power on. I can edit BIOS options. I put in the CD or DVD, it starts fine. Keyboard works for selecting boot options. Once the installation begins however, no more keyboard...

This is true across every version and distribution of Linux I have come across- I have dozens of liveCDs -EXCEPT Linux Mint 8.

Laptop = Acer 5517

Running Linux Mint 8 & Windows 7

I have no USB Legacy Emulation BIOS option

I've tried this: [url]

Debian :: Installation Doesn't Work

Jun 2, 2010

I'm trying to install Debian 5.0x to my miniITX computer.


I had this setup running in a previous configuration. The only difference were the disks. I had a 120GB and a 1TB (/home). Because I need more space I swapped both disks for 2 x 2TB.

I tried a 64bit Debian 5.xx stable install. Everything goes fine until the first boot. After the POST and BIOS screen a cursor justs blinks and the computer does nothing. the computer doesn't start GRUB

Well I thought maybe a small error with downloading the DVD so I tried another debian but Testing now. There the setup hangs when it wants to make the file-systems. It says something like can't make ext4 filesystem. I also tried with ext3. So I manually tried to do fdisk and mkfs.ext4 (and mkfs.ext3) for both disks in the console during installation. fdisk works but when I try mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1 it says that some bin-file is missing? How's that possible on an installation disc? Never ever had that before?

Well after 15 attempts (meanwhile lost 2kg of fingernails)I tried another 32 bit DVD install of Debian 5.xx. It can make the filesystems again and install everything but when it has to boot for the first time it just doesn't. I don't even see GRUB.

Seems to me that the computer doesn't refer to the HD to boot. In the BIOS the BOOT order is just fine (the previous config with the old HD's just worked fine). Even when I put in the install DVD it skips the HD and boots from the DVD?

I really don't get it. The disks are both shown in the BIOS. Is this a hardware or software issue? I think that Linux or GRUB should be able to work with 2TB discs isn't it?
