Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To 10.10 Broke Some Of Compiz Plugins?

Oct 11, 2010

So after I upgraded to 10.10 some of my compiz plugins stopped working. Atlantis and anaglyph give me an error like this when I enable them in CCSM (I ran compiz from a terminal to see the output):

compiz (atlantis) - Error: InitObject failed
compiz (core) - Error: Couldn't activate plugin 'atlantis'

Ubuntu Installation :: 2.6.31-19 Upgrade Broke Grub2

Feb 7, 2010

I upgraded yesterday ubuntu 9.10 to 2.6.31-19 kernel. After reboot, I get stack to GRUB black screen. No possibilities.

My set-up is triple boot 9.04, 9.10 and winxp. The MBR is handled by win boot.ini with no problems. Each ubuntu partition has a grub installed in it.

9.04 is on sda5 with grub installed on it ext3
9.10 is on sda9 with grub2 installed on it ext4

I am able to boot into sda9, via grub of sda5 obviously passing the correct kernel parameters and UUID.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Broke Web Browsers?

Apr 10, 2010

I upgraded to 9.1 and now my web browsers are not working properly--FireFox would not connect to certain sites, others worked fine. I installed Chrome and it worked for a short period--now none of my browsers work at all and package install manager does not work. Overall performance is much slower than before upgrade--boot time is about 4 times slower. I'd like to fix this build because I had it tweaked just the way I liked it before the upgrade--it was working great and now I'm sorry I upgraded there any hope or should I just start with a fresh install of 9.1 or even the previous version

Ubuntu Installation :: Latest Upgrade Broke Booting?

Mar 17, 2010

I just did the latest upgrade in 9.10 via the update manager and it required a reboot. When I rebooted Ubuntu failed to load. In recovery mode it fails saying that it can't find my root device and has some suggestions about what might be wrong. I looked at the file it listed in /proc/something and the devices available by uuid in /dev/ and what's listed in /proc/something isn't in dev. I haven't made any changes yet for fear of causing worse damage. The shell it bumps to is ASH and it doesn't look to have much editor support to make changes to the proc file(ECHO > ?). Is there a safer way to get my system back online?

I'm running 9.10 AMD64 on a Dell Inspiron laptop with a dual boot to Windows 7 (For browser testing web apps/sites)

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 To Lucid Upgrade Broke VirtualBox?

May 13, 2010

Since my distribution upgrade to 10.04 my VirtualBox guest of XP SP3 will not boot, it bluescreens and reboots. I can boot the guest in last known good config and in safe mode but I have no CDROM. I attempted a tools install over the lan but that resulted in the same blue screen. Tried installing the virtualbox-3.2 beta package and guest tools and had the same results..

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Upgrade Broke Login?

Jun 23, 2010

I had a working workstation with Karmic. Then I decided to upgrade to Lucid. Bad move, it turns out.First the upgrade crashed. Just stopped doing something for hours on end, and I eventually had to reboot. After that, I had to apply lots of apt-get and dpkg love to get the machine to book. Now, I *think* I have a Lucid system, at last. Only that it doesn't work where the Karmic system used to...Our setup uses kerberos and autofs. To begin with, the upgrade lost my /etc/krb5.keytab (making it impossible to log in), but that can be easily replaced.Now, I can log in, but my home directory doesn't get mounted. In /var/log/auth.log, I get this:

Jun 23 11:13:58 pc13477 gdm-session-worker[1801]: pam_krb5(gdm:auth): pam_sm_authenticate: entry (0x0)
Jun 23 11:13:58 pc13477 gdm-session-worker[1801]: pam_krb5(gdm:auth): (user hans) attempting authentication

Ubuntu Installation :: Libpango Upgrade Broke Synaptic?

Mar 4, 2011

I ran a system upgrade today and it froze at "unpacking replacement libpango1-common". It just wouldn't go on. The upgrade kept on showing "unpacking replacement ..", the process used zero CPU time, so I killed it, removed the lock and after Synaptic asked me to, I ran sudo dpkg --configure -a. Now I can't install anything. Everytime I try to, I get an error telling me I should run "sudo apt-get -f install", however, whenever I do that, another endless installation of libpango1.0-common starts. I tried various things like installing that package manually, removing it and so on, but nothing helped. Any advice on how to get my package installation system working again is warmly welcome.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Upgrade Broke Monitor Setup?

May 2, 2010

Upon upgrading from Karmic to Lucid, Everything comes up, seemingly fine. Once logged in to the OS, my three monitors show the desktop wallpaper as well as all the icons on the desktop. A few programs that I have set to autostart do so.

However for some reason, I can only access one of the three monitors. (And not the one with the gnome-panel.) As soon as I drag my mouse from my third monitor onto the one next to it, I loose complete control of it, and it starts dancing all over the place. If I try to drag a window from one screen to the next (using Alt-Left CLick + drag and not moving the mouse onto the other monitor), the the app goes from one side of the working monitor to the other side (like it's wrapping around). Though I can see it on the other monitor for a little bit until I get it far enough for it to wrap.

Here is my xorg.conf:


Section "Files"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/:unscaled"

Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox Flash Plugin Broke After Upgrade To 10.04?

May 25, 2010

I had the Adobe flash plugin working under 09.10 in Firefox; now after the upgrade to 10.04, it doesn't work.When I go to a web page with flash video, I get the message "Some plugins are not installed" and video will not display. I click on the button to install the plugins and select Adobe Flash. I get the message "Package is already installed." I go back to the web page and the same thing happens again.In Ubuntu Software Center I see that package restricted-extras is installed.

I tried going through Tools / Add-ons in Firefox, but the list of add-ons wouldn't load at all that way.I also tried going to Adobe's web site, but for versions of Ubuntu 09 and later it offers an "APT" file instead of a .deb. Firefox asks what application to use to open an "APT" file and I don't know what to tell it... I'd be fine downloading a .deb or using apt-get or Ubuntu Software Center though.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Broke After Wubi Upgrade / Sort It?

Aug 18, 2010

I beleive I had version 9.x installed. I upgraded once and everything was fine. I went the upgrade manager again and it found some more upgrades. The upgrade messed with grub. It then told me there were no new upgrades. Then I rebooted and it says

Try (hd0,0): NTFS5

Then the screen clears and there is some text I can't read and then it says command not found. Then it reboots.

Is there a way to fix this?
If not is there a way to recover the files from the disk image file.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10b Crashed With GError, Broke System

Oct 17, 2010

i wanted to upgrade my ubuntu system to meerkat beta via update manager like i upgraded it the last 5+ times.

a bug showed up that i can recall from updating files previously: some software installtions via update manager triggered the programm nicotine+ (i think is was something like man-lib or man-db that, when called by the installtion programm, would trigger nicotine too). since i can close that nicotine+-window and the installation process isnt bothered any further i didnt mind.

now with this upgrade, i had to close nicotine+ around 5 times since it got triggered together with some of the files that got updated/installed in this upgrade.

and then what happened: GError something about an "unrecognized image file", it concerned a py file that was named "nicotine"...

so i waited for 10 mins and figured out that the update process had stopped. i couldnt resist and logged out, wanting to delete nicotine from my system and to reinitialize the upgrade. well, nothing works since then, grub only lets me choose different kernels which didnt help much as there was no way to startx.

my question is:

how can i reset this upgrade mess or bring this pending upgrade to an end? can i do an upgrade via network, based on the emergency shell that comes up in some kernel-recoverymodes? or should i burn a livecd, boot it and then do what? repair? try another upgrade? delete nicotine?

having 'consumed' ubuntu for years now i still wouldnt know what else to do then posting here.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To 10.10 Broke Surround Sound - No 5.1 - Only Stero

Nov 7, 2010

I upgraded my ubuntu installation from 10.04 to 10.10, now surround sound (5.1) does not work in xbmc, or in another player such as vlc. Only the front two speakers work. I noticed pulseaudio and alsa are installed. I thought i removed pulseaudio once before but cant really remember. In the sound configuration preferences thing (prefs >> sound), i have hdmi output selected (hdmi goes from the HTPC to the amplifier). It only plays audio in 2.0 instead of 5.1. I tried selecting the analog 5.1 sound option, but none of the test sounds work. However i noticed vlc still played movies with audio, but only stero no 5.1.

Previous to the upgrade, i had 5.1 working fine in xbmc, never bothered to check vlc since it was all good. Also, when i go into alsamixer, it does not show any rear speakers, it just shows a front speaker and a bunch of other stuff, like headphones. I'm not sure what other output you guys need, but let me know and i'll get it. Here is the alsa-info.sh output for my HTPC: [Code]..... Another note, after i reinstalled pulseaudio the first time, vlc fails to display a 5.1 movie and still plays tero output.

Ubuntu Installation :: Fujitsu P1610 Touchscreen Broke After Upgrade To Lucid?

Jun 21, 2010

Ever since I upgraded, the touchscreen on my Fujitsu Lifebook P1610 no longer works. On Karmic, it worked out of the box without installing any extra packages.

I see xserver-xorg-input-fpit in Synaptic Package Manager but it conflicts with netbook remix packages for some reason so I haven't tried installing it.

I didn't see anything in dmesg about the touchscreen but there are Xorg errors:

(II) config/udev: Adding input device Serial Wacom Tablet (/dev/ttyS0)
(**) Serial Wacom Tablet: Applying InputClass "Wacom serial class"
(II) LoadModule: "wacom"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/wacom_drv.so
(II) Module wacom: vendor="X.Org Foundation"


I'm not sure if it's supposed to be recognized as a wacom tablet or what, and I'm also not sure how it used to be configured when it worked in Karmic.

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Upgrade To 2.6.32-23-generic Broke My LVM - RAID And GRUB

Jul 4, 2010

I recently updated the kernel to the newest version(2.6.32-23-generic) using the update manager and now I am unable to boot in to my Lucid installation.

My setup is LVM on top of a RAID 0 array. My computer had been running in this configuration since Lucid was released.

The Error Code I get on Boot is to the effect of: /dev/mapper/ubuntu-os is not available.. and then I get kicked in to Busy Box.

Once in Busy Box if I try to use mdadm to mount the RAID array I get this error:

If I boot in to the live CD I can mount all of the partitions and LVM volumes, so it does not appear to be a failed drive or volume.

I have looked in the mdadm.conf, lvm config and grub config files and searched the "Google" for an answer with no-avail...

Ultimately I would like to find a solution which doesn't involve a re-installation.

Ubuntu :: No Access To Certain Plugins As Unity And Compiz

Jun 6, 2011

I have recently purchased an ASUS Eee PC (netbook) model 1215T MU10. It has the AMD Athlon II Neo K125 (1.70GHz) processor and a AMD 'nile' platform with an integrated AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics card. It has 2 gigs of DDR3 ram. I received the netbook with no OS and installed Ubuntu 11.04 Natty as its only OS. How to make this OS as functional as possible on the computer which it is installed. I have tried to do this myself and noticed I could not access certain plug-ins such as Unity and Compiz ccss. I fiddled with things and eventually ended up having to do a fresh install of the OS and coming to the realization that I have not a clue what I am doing. I have seen video reviews of the unity interface and would absolutely LOVE to have some of the cool things it can do happening on my display.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Cube Broke Compiz?

Apr 29, 2011

I was just experimenting with compiz effects on Natty 11.04, and when I clicked desktop cube (which I'm assuming you're not supposed to do, haha), my compiz broke. The pop up windows are way at the top of the screen, almost out of view, and the windows lack the close, minimize, and maximize buttons. I tried reinstalling all the compiz plugins, and when I rebooted I had the same problem! I am using metacity right now, but I would be very sad if i was stuck with it.

Ubuntu :: While Testing Compiz - It Broke Desktop

May 19, 2011

Today, after some testing with compiz in my PC, I ended up uninstalling it again, because the video card didn't have the right specs. So when I rebooted, my desktop started acting weird - the applications' top panels disappeared, they couldn't be moved around, no more usable workspaces, etc ... also the mouse pointer keeps on rotating indefinitely, making my OS practically unusable. So is there any hope I can restore my desktop to its previous state, or do I have to do a full reinstall, which I'd like to avoid if possible ?

Using Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic, 64 bit, Gnome.

Ubuntu :: Find Some .deb Packages For Some Experimental Compiz Plugins

Sep 5, 2010

I'm trying to find some .deb packages for some experimental Compiz plugins, mainly the Headtracking plugin. I have tried compiling the plugin, but I have had no end of trouble doing so. Come to think of it, I don't think I have ever successfully compiled a piece of software in Linux. So, are there any .deb packages for this plugin?

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz Extra Plugins Broken?

Mar 16, 2010

I had a Compiz update two weeks ago, this update came from the official repository of Debian. So everyone had this update, this update did not had a positive effect. The extra plugins on both my desktop and laptop can't be enabled now. Such as Expo or the Animations. I can just use the basic stuff. There have been some partial upgrades ever since for Compiz, so I guess they are still working on it. But my question is; am I the only one?

Slackware :: Start Compiz And Plugins From Command Line

May 20, 2010

I've been searching for hours now on how to start compiz from command line and configure the plugins. I just want to use the compiz core package in Slackware (no add-ons for now). I've figured out starting compiz

compiz --replace
and the windows decorator

gtk-window-decorator --replace
kde-window-decorator --replace
for gtk based or kde respectively. I know how to start the plugins (by putting their names in the compiz command), but not what all of their command line names are.

What I'm looking for is all the console names of the base plugins (and eventually the others too), the order they need to be started in (if any), how to automatically start compiz when X starts, and how to change plugin settings (all without ccsm). How to do the above stuff without the use of a graphical tool.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Broke Firefox - Tiny Brown Spot At The Upper-left Side Of The Screen

Feb 19, 2010

I have two computers running Ubuntu Gnome with Firefox. Upgrades yesterday (18 February 2010) at about 1430 MDT hours (UTC 2130 hours) broke Firefox on both machines. Firefox is present in the menu, and in /usr/bin/firefox, but it will not launch, not even from the command line. I have tried "sudo apt-get remove firefox" followed by "sudo apt-get install firefox" but the problem persists. When attempting to launch firefox, it does give me a tiny brown spot at the upper-left side of the screen. This can be expanded by dragging so that it is a full screen, labeled "Firefox" but there is no content in the screen...only blank space.

Ubuntu :: Upgrade From 10.10 To 11.04 Broke WMII

May 17, 2011

I have upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04. I have been using wmii as window manager under ubuntu for years. After the upgrade it's entirely broken.

The metakey is not working anymore, I cannot do anything. The key itself works fine in other environments so is's no hardware issue. After several attempts I completely uninstalled wmii, removed all relevant folders in home and /etc/X11 and reinstalled wmii from the ubuntu repositories.

This fresh install does not work. It starts a strange looking wmii without any key responding to my actions. I copied my old wmiirc to ~/.wmii. When i log in I see my individualized wmii but the metakey is not working and i cannot do anything, like opening a shell.

Edit: A change to "MODKEY=ALT" in wmiirc does not change anything.
