Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From Alpha To Alpha / Beta?

Feb 26, 2010

I upgraded Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx, Alpha 2. Now I want to upgrade to Alpha 3, and eventually to BetaX. When I enter the command updata-manager -d, the system says that I am up-to-date. Is there a direct way to upgrade to the latest Alpha, or do I need to download the .iso, build a CD, and do an install from that?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Get Blender To Run In 10.04

Feb 7, 2011

I am having a problem getting Blender to run in Ubuntu 10.04. Whenever I run it, it just gives me a blank grey screen. I have to use "Force Quit" to close it down. It will not close down just by right clicking on the bottom tab and choosing "Close".

I have installed the version from the Ubuntu Software Center and it gives me the blank grey screen. I have manually installed version 2.49b with Python 2.6 for Linux x86-32 and it gives me the blank grey screen. I have manually installed version 2.56a Beta, 32 bit and it gives me the blank grey screen.

I run a dual boot system with Windows XP and Ubuntu 10.04. I have installed Blender in Windows XP and I have no issues. The program opens and you can see the normal layout with buttons and such.

Here is my computer info:

Laptop Toshiba Satellite A100 (5 years old)

-Intel(R) Celeron(R) M processor 1.70GHz

-512 RAM (Although it shows Memory as being 432 Mib in sysinfo)

-Graphics card - ATI Technologies Inc. RC410 (Radeon Express 200M)

-80 GB Hard Drive- 60 GB for Windows XP, 20 GB for Ubuntu 10.04 Currently 13.4 GB available in Ubuntu

I do not receive any error messages when I run Blender. Just a blank grey screen opens up, doesn't allow me to do anything, shows no buttons and has to be shut down using "Force Quit".

Ubuntu Installation :: Downgrading From 10.10 Alpha To 10.04

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Still Wants Alpha CD

Oct 20, 2010

Few months ago I thought I would test the alpha release, so I downloaded the file and burned the .iso to CD. I had problems with the installation, so I cancelled it half-way through, and continued to use 10.04, which worked fine. Now, whenever I try to update/upgrade the system, it keeps asking me to insert the old CD, which I no longer have.

For example, if I try to
sudo apt-get update
it seems to work fine, until it stalls with the message:
Media Change: Please insert the disc labelled
'Ubuntu 10.10 _Maverick Meerkat_ - Alpha i386 (20100925)'
in the drive /cdrom/ and press enter

Apart from this recurring problem, I think I have have now successfully upgraded to 10.10. I realize that it's probably my own fault (or is it -- shouldn't 10.10 realise that I am way beyond the alpha release now?)

Ubuntu Installation :: Downgrade From 11.04 Alpha To 10.10?

Mar 12, 2011

how/if I can downgrade my dual-boot partition (win-7/11.04) to 10.10 without having to reformat the entire disk?

Can I use the same partition I installed the alpha 11.04 on to install 10.10 and save myself a lot of work?

Is it possible to simply reformat the Ubuntu Linux partition and re-install 10.10 there while preserving my Windows 7 installation?

Can I keep the newer GRUB boot loader for 11.04 (I like it better), or will I be forced to downgrade that as well?

I just tried the alpha, and I can't use it. It's still too green, so I want to go back to 10.10 the easiest way possible, so I'd need a little detail on the process of using the advanced partition features (if this is even possible).

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Alpha - Screen Flickering?

Mar 11, 2011

I had 10.10 installed and decided to chance it by upgrading to the Alpha release 11.04.Graphic card is ATI Sapphire X1550 I think (512MB).Apart from trying to get used to the buggy interface (to be expected from the alpha), the screen keeps blinking, goes black for a second every 30 seconds.

Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 - Bootloader - FAKERAID

Jan 19, 2010

I continue to have issues installing any of the newer version of Ubuntu on my ICH9 FAKERAID. I read that the GRUB2 issue with FAKERAID was solved shortly after Karmic was released. Did this somehow not get added to the Alpha 1 and Alpha 2 of Lucid? I would love to have Ubuntu installed on my main rig, but I do not want to fuss around with it forever...

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded Karmic To Lucid Alpha 3?

Mar 16, 2010

I just upgraded Ubuntu Karmic to Lucid alpha 3. It works fine except for a few things that can be expected in an alpha version. Anyway, I would like to know if it would be better to upgrade to the final release of Lucid or if I should do a clean install. I don't mind losing my files and settings because there is nothing important on my laptop, but it would be nice not to.

Ubuntu Installation :: Alternate Install (10.04 And 10.10 Alpha) LVM Boot?

Jun 19, 2010

Today I decided to replace my 9.04 install with 10.04. (I did this on a separate hard disk.) As I am a big fan of LVM I used the 'Alternate' install CD. Everything installed fine.

However, upon booting I observed two things: firstly there was no grub menu. No countdown timer, no menu. Just a flickering cursor. After 15 seconds or so I got a message telling me that:

/dev/mapper/bromine-root (My root partition.) does not exist and that it had given up waiting. Finding this kind of strange I tried the alpha of 10.10 --- same again. Hence I have two questions: firstly, where did the nice grub menu go; secondly, what is wrong with LVM and grub these days? At the initframfs prompt I am thrown to there are some LVM utilities and they appear to show my volumes.

Switching back to my old pair of hard disks and everything works as expected (i.e, the hardware is fine and supported by Linux.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Natty Alpha 1 Console Text Corruption?

Jan 17, 2011

fixing a text corruption issue / advice for filing a bug report (if necessary). So, generally speaking the stability I am experiencing with Natty is as I expect; I'm fully aware that this is a very very early development release and so all sorts of things can go wrong. I just wanted to point that out So while Gnome/Unity are up and running, graphics run more or less perfectly, the boot process text is completely garbled and if after everything is fully loaded I hit Control+Alt+F1-F6 the text looks like:

* this
* the above image close-up

The above links are supposed to be of the ubuntu login prompt. The problem occurred after running the upgrade command:


sudo do-release-upgrade -d

As is standard upgrade procedure. Is there anything obvious going on that I can tweak to make it all happy again? Since I have a working GUI.

Ubuntu :: Blender 2.56 Doesn't Want To Start Again?

Apr 11, 2011

This will be my first posting here. Please forgive me for not posting this issue under the right place on the forum. I highly ask to the mod/admins to move this post to the correct location if needed to be, or let it continue as normal. My problem here is with this software blender 2.56a, I'm running Ubuntu 10.10. 64bit This version of blender worked just fine for me since it updated to my computer. But right after finishing an complex render, blender crashed and will not start up again.

Every time I click on the icon it just keeps flashing up and crashing down. So I went to the main blender site, and downloaded one of their stand alone version of the 2.56a. I ran it and it works just fine.

I tried reinstalling blender 2.56a under Synaptic, but no use. I'm out of ideas, I want this software to run like it use to. Again, It use to run without any problems, but just under one hard render it crashed, and Now it wont launch again.

However, I did mange to get my project to render just find under the stand alone. If any one needs some sort of debugging file, or information of some kind. I would then need to know how to re-chieve it..

Ubuntu :: LibreOffice Regex - Replace [:alpha:]$

Jun 20, 2011

My friend lost her dissertation and she had only a pdf copy of it. I am trying to convert the pdf into an odt format. After copy-pasting the content into an odt, i need to replace all paragraph breaks which are not following a dot with a space. For which i thought of using the regular expression feature of Libre Office. I've not succeeded so far.

I tried: to replace [:alpha:]$ or [a-z]$ or [a-z]>$ with space, but none of them worked. Finding [a-z] seems to work, finding [a-z]> too. So did finding $ (end of paragraph) but if i combine any regex with $ then it doesn't find anything.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Blender Running Slowly / Cause Of This?

Jul 1, 2010

I hope this is the right forum for this.
I downloaded Blender today to try my hand at making some 3D graphics. I have used it in the past on a windows machine and it ran smoothly. This time I have downloaded it onto a computer with similar specs but it runs very slowly. The program is laggy and slow to respond to both keyboard and mouse input. When I checked the system monitor it said that I am using 50% of my cpu and 1/6th of my memory running both Blender and Firefox(to write this post). The machine is running no hotter than usual and the fans do not seem to be being stressed at all.

Does anyone know what could be causing the program to run so slowly?

Ubuntu :: Compile A New Version Of Blender From Source?

Mar 28, 2011

1. I was trying to compile a new version of blender from source.

2. It wasn't working. Apparently it is using python 3.2 now.

3. So I grabbed the source of python 3.2, compiled and installed. I think.

4. Still wouldn't compile. Couldn't find python 3.2.

5. So I went in to usr/share/python and changed debian-defaults to use 3.2 as the default.

6. To do that I made myself the owner of the usr directory

7. Now my system is buggered.

8. How do I restore roots privileges (if thats the problem)?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Control Key Not Working With Blender 2.57

May 1, 2011

I'm running Natty with the official Blender 2.57 32-bit build.This same problem occurs with previous version of Blender and Ubuntu, although not with Blender 2.4x or any other programs.Pressing the control key does nothing in Blender. Pressing 'Ctrl+S' causes the active object to scale, as if I just pressed 'S'. If I run 'killall gnome-settings-daemon', it temporarily works normally, but then I lose Gtk themes and icons and stuff.

I'm on a Dell Latitude D620, and I haven't messed with any keyboard settings.I know people using the same hardware and OS that can use Blender fine, so I'm guessing there's some sort of xinput configuration or something that got messed up somehow.

Ubuntu :: When Run Blender3d And Alt-tab It Glitches Out - Blender 2.49 Error

Jan 5, 2011

I have never had this problem before. But when i run blender3d and alt-tab it glitches out. It happens when I use render(f12), alt-tab and switch desktops. I have also noticed that it does it with Sweethome3d. So it could be a java issue. Not really too sure though. I dont know what I am looking for to search the problem. So I thought I would make a new post and and ..... the issue followed with my Specs.

I reviewed the ..... and it missed alot of the glitches. But you can see some of them they are the pixels all over the screen.

I've been using Natty since alpha, and along the way several thing became broken. I would like to get my system to be as stable as if I did a clean install, but without haveing to do all the work it would take, to get everything back the way I want it. Is there a way to clean up all the leftover obsolete files and bad configurations, created by buggy beta builds?
