Ubuntu Installation :: Revert System Back To Pre Updates Without Having To Reinstall?

Mar 19, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 and I have been keeping it updated via update manager.Last night the update manager popped up and I selected to update all required updates without checking what the updates were.While shutting down I noticed that I needed to reboot to complete the update, so I rebooted.After reboot the wireless network card disappeared. So I moved the PC and plugged in the ethernet cable. Oddly sometimes it shows disconnected for no reason and I have to reboot.What's even worst is that Ubuntu now locks up completely within 15 minutes of a reboot.None of the alt+sysrq commands do anything!How do I find out what the updates were and is there any way to I revert my system back to pre updates without having to reinstall?

Ubuntu :: Revert 10.10 Font Back To Original?

Nov 30, 2010

I have upgraded to 10.10 and I want to go back to the font used in 10.04. What was the name of the font in Lucid? Moreover, how do I make Google Chrome adopt this change? It is currently rendering all the web-pages with the Ubuntu font and I want whatever 10.04 was using. If I change the font in the Appearance -> Fonts panel, Google Chrome does not update.

General :: Downgrading Ubuntu 9.1 And Revert Back To 9.04

Nov 1, 2009

I upgraded U. 9.04 to 9.1 over the net a few days ago and got stung by the 'Driver' issue. Namely, my nvidia card is not reconciled and as a result, the monitor remains blank. I am assuming that the remainder of the upgrade went o.K. though I can only follow the boot sequence on the monitor during the bios start up.

I have a live disk of U. 9.04 and want to revert back to it, preserving my data. When I put in the disk and am hopefully asked if I want to "Upgrade", will it work in reverse, so to speak. I understand that there is a problem with compatible libraries etc. but will it ignore this and simply replace the new with the old?

Ubuntu :: Revert Back To Open Source Lucid Driver?

May 31, 2010

I made the error of installing FGLRX on lucid. After the install, Plymouth resolution sucks and my laptop will not come out of suspend/hibernate. When I use jockey-gtk to disable FGLRX, it will not allow me to use compiz for 3d graphics. However, out of the box, I was able to run compiz no problem.How can I revert lucid back to factory form, where it was able to perform 3d acceleration without the use of FGLRX?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Revert Back To CentOS Default Yum RPM Repositories?

Aug 5, 2009

A while back I had to install an extra yum rpm repository to my CentOS 5 server as I needed newer versions of httpd (v2.2. and php (v5.1.6) than were in the default repositories at the time.

I now wish to revert back to the standard repositories, I have removed reference to the custom repository from etc/yum.repos.d/ and used '# yum clean all' but cannot seem update these packages when I use '# yum update'.

Is there a way of making the rpm packages for httpd and php go back to using the standard repos, or will I have to manual update them from now on?

Or could I uninstall those rpms and reinstall from default repo without breaking the whole server?

Fedora :: Make Gnome-volume-control Revert Back To Actually Being Gmixer?

Jan 16, 2010

installed F12 and noticed that the volume control applet is now all Pulseaudio rubbish, not Alsa like gmixer used to be. So now I don't seem to be able to mute my speakers when I'm using my headset, which in F10 I could do by just muting LFE/Center.Note I don't want the speakers to be disabled when I have the headphones plugged in (like Jack does) I just want to be able to control volume of the mixer channels individually - as sometimes I'll be playing music through the speakers and will receive a Skype call and want to mute the music, but also don't want the Skype sound coming out of the speakers - just the headphones.

I've tried setting up 4.1+input, 5.1+input, 4.0+input etc; but for some reason, even though the PulseAudio mixer thing has 5 individual sliders, they do nothing as they "jump" back to 100% when you slide them - even with the channels unlocked. gmixer and alsamixer do the job, but pulseaudio is the applet and only seems to control the master volume, not the individual channels. Any ideas - or perhaps a way to make gnome-volume-control revert back to actually being gmixer?

Ubuntu :: Revert Back Accidentally Installed "lxdm" On Top Of 10.10

Nov 3, 2010

I'm using 10.10, up to date etc. I went into Synaptic Package Manager and installed the package "ldxm" and all its dependancies. Now when I go to log into Gnome desktop, all I can see is my wallpaper. All my girlfriend's files and photos were encrypted in the home directory (or whatever), I selected that option when I installed it.

All I wanted was the new login-screen theme (rather than the rectangular default one) and now I can't seem to revert back I just want to go back to before I installed "lxdm"

Hardware :: Changes To Fstab (UUID's) / Revert Fstab's Listings Back To The Old /dev/hd Settings?

Jan 15, 2010

I've had two hd's in my box forever. for more space and backup reasons. Well I have started running the Debian Squeeze distro since December. I've had many issues, some are still unresolved. but now I'm running into major headaches with the fstab. Specifically dealing with/wondering why UUID's are used instead of the old /dev/hd? I was a little annoyed when I tried Kubuntu to find /dev/sd? used instead of /dev/hd? but that was workable. But the UUID's are a nightmare. Here's my problem.

My main box is finally giving up the ghost. The mobo is dying. So in order to do some tests I took my hd bundle (my two hard drives with their cables) physically out of the box and temp installed them in a test box. I wanted to do some benchmark and other tests. I got all kinds of errors. I found that the system wasn't recognizing the UUID's listed in fstab. My concern is when the new mobo gets here next week I won't simply be able to plug the hd's in like I always have been and just let Linux reconfigure itself (Debian used to be good about this). I really don't want to have to clean reinstall if it's not needed.

So for this I have two questions. WHY developers decided to drop using /dev/hd? or even /dev/sd? ?

And is it possible to revert fstab's listings back to the old /dev/hd? settings. In debian fstab had lines commented out showing how each partition was listed in it's /dev/hd? status during install.

I'm getting really sick of all these archane changes in ALL aspects of linux that don't seem to have any good explaination or need.

Ubuntu :: Unity Has Disappeared / Get It Back?

May 31, 2011

When logging in, I suddenly got a message saying "It appears you do not have the hardware to run Unity", and it initialized the old GNOME 2 desktop.

Ofcourse I have the hardware to run Unity (an NVIDIA GTX 580), and it has worked normally until now...

Now Unity won't come back, even after logging out / in or rebooting. The video driver works normally and NVIDIA X Server Settings does not show that there's anything wrong with my video card or drivers.

Is this a bug? Did this happen to anyone else? How do I get the Unity desktop back?

Ubuntu :: Reverting From Gnome3 Back To Unity?

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.

Ubuntu :: U11.04 Unity Panel Icons Missing / Get Them Back?

May 5, 2011

After playing around with Ubuntu Tweaks to remove the "Recent Documents" logging, I somehow ended up losing the icons for "Applications" and "Files & Folders".

I tried lots of different things but the only thing that seemed to sort it was this:

Log out. Log in under Ubuntu Classic (for some reason dropping back to tty with Ctr, Alt and F2 didn't do it). Bring up the terminal and do code...

Log back into Ubuntu (not classic) and hopefully, you should end up with all icons back as they were.

This worked for me but I can't remember if I'd gotten rid of the ".recent-documents.xbel" file in my home folder first, so if all else fails you could try that before you start removing and re-installing Unity.

Ubuntu :: Getting Unity Back After Video Card Change

Aug 4, 2011

I have an Asus/Intel setup with integrated graphics that has been running Unity no problem for a while. I temporarily installed a separate NVidia card to do some hardware compatibility testing for another system that apparently couldn't hack it for Unity and forced it back to Classic. With the Nvidia card removed and going back to the integrated video setup I can't seem to get Unity running again. At the login I've toggled back and forth between Ubuntu (Unity) and Classic to no avail. Is there some way to reactivate it?
