Ubuntu Installation :: Going From Crunchbang 9.04 Back To Lucid

Apr 28, 2010

I'm planning on going from Crunchbang 9.04 back to Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. My main concern is drivers and such. I have an Asus K40 with 4 gb ram, and Nvidia graphics cards. Last time, I had a disaster with Jaunty. The suspect is Gnome, as Crunchbang works. Is there a chance that I could have issues using the 64-bit 10.04 LTS? I need a stable system. It is going to take me a while to set up the new system so I want to make sure I'm prepared for any issues. I'm doing a clean install. I can pull up hardware types, etc, if need be later tonight.

Ubuntu Installation :: Bring Back Gnome-app-install For Lucid?

Apr 30, 2010

I hate using Software Center. I can't pick more than one program to install at one time. It downloads only one program at a time.The downloads take longer. I'm not able to look at all available programs at once. It doesn't categorise the programs on the sidebar, but instead you have to use another icon window. Gnome-app-install was just easer to use. Anyone else feel this way?

Following lines taken from other replies in this post to make it easier to do:

-You can install gnome-app-install from this ppa repo.

-Update the repository (including the new PPA):

sudo apt-get update

-Install the gnome application installer:

sudo apt-get install gnome-app-install

-Run the gnome application installer:

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Emails , Bookmarks And Pictures After Upgrade To Lucid / Need Back

May 5, 2010

I upgraded from Karmic to Lucid (Ubuntu 10.04) a few days ago (without backing up any data first). At first everything seemed fine but yesterday three things happened:

1. All my emails and address book have disappeared in Thunderbird. When I started Thunderbird, it took me through the wizard and seems to have overwritten my profile with a new one. There is only one profile in the Thunderbird folder and it seems to contain no emails and only a new, blank address book (the small size of the folder backs this up. I searched the hard drive but found no other emails or address book files.

2. My bookmarks have disappeared from Google Chrome. Again, it seems to have created a new, blank bookmark file. The bookmark.bak file is similarly blank and when I search I can find no other bookmark files.

3. The Pictures folder (in the home folder) is now empty; suggesting that ubuntu has either overwritten the Pictures folder with a new blank folder or deleted all the files in it. Again, when I search the hard drive for jpg files, it doesn't find any of the pictures that were in the Pictures folder.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid (monitor Switches To Standby) - Screen Goes Black With A Flashing Cursor Then Changes Back To Purple

May 5, 2010

I cannot install Ubuntu 10.04, or even boot into the live CD. I'm not an expert, but I've used Ubuntu for several years, and I'm pretty sure I'm not doing anything stupid... Here's what happens when I boot with the Ubuntu 10.04 live CD: I get a purple screen with just an accessibility(?) symbol at the bottom (this lasts 15 seconds). The screen goes black, with a flashing cursor, then changes back to purple, this time with an Ubuntu logo, with 5 dots acting as a progress indicator (this lasts about 1 minute). The screen switches to standby. The CD drive continues to make noises for another minute or so, then stops.

I physically removed my graphics card (ATI Radeon HD 5770), and plugged the monitor straight into the VGA port on the motherboard. Now the CD boots up fine. I could try installing Ubuntu at this point, while my graphics card is unplugged, and then plug my graphics card back in, and see if it starts working then.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Switch From DVI Back To HDMI In Lucid?

Jan 14, 2011

Having a bit of an issue with my Lucid x64 HTPC. I can get the image to appear through DVI on a spare external monitor, but when it is disconnected and switched back to HDMI I get not picture on the TV any longer. I switched the sound output to an external USB device for testing the unit and noticed on reboot that I had lost everything via HDMI even though the setting had been switched back previously. Obviously a setting must be off here somewhere, but I've yet to find it. I've rebooted with only the HDMI connected, but still nothing.

Ubuntu :: Back To Karmic From Lucid Using Laptop With No Internal Display?

May 10, 2010

Laptop only has external display. When karmic boots 2.6.31-21 and initrd.img has finished loading, and I have taken quiet splash out of boot line, I get nothing on the external display until gnome come up. Does the kernel driver only recognise internal displays until X takes over, or is there something wrong with the karmic 855GM kernel driver?

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?

Ubuntu :: No Sound After Upgrade From Karmic Koala To Lucid System / Get That Back?

May 28, 2010

Last Monday I upgraded the Ubuntu from Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx in my laptop (HP Compaq volna 515), and I have no sound. Searching in linux forums for an answers, I've got that (as far as I understand) there's no unique solution for this problem.

This is my lspci code...

Also, I tried to clean up the pulse audio .. What is funny for me is that pulse audio and alsa, and the audio players seems to work normally (no error of device not found or something like that).. except that there's no sound out from the speakers.

Any suggestion to discover if the problem is drivers, kernel, packages, or hardware failure? more important, how do I get the sound back?

Ubuntu :: Could Not Get Actual CrunchBang Install Files

Apr 10, 2011

I had the problem: "could not download all repository indexes". On Cruncheee (An EEEPC specific Crunchbang distro), which I managed to "fix" by changing the /etc/apt/sources.list file by replacing it with stuff I found in a guide. (Shown at end). Now when I press the Reload button on Synaptic no more errors come up! But when I search for "audacious" (music player) I can only find "crunchbang-audacious-theme", and no actual crunchbang installing things.

What have I actually done to my my sources.list file, did I tell it to look elsewhere for servers with lists of dependencies? Is a "repository" just a place on the internet which has lots of dependencies in it? If I were to just add more and more stuff to my sources.list file and kept pressing "reload" on Synaptic, would I eventually find some packages to install Audacious? What does "sudo apt-get" do? Is that exactly the same as finding something on synaptic and clicking it?

My new sources.list:
## Add comments (##) in front of any line to remove it from being checked.
## Use the following sources.list at your own risk.
deb [URL] dapper main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src [URL] dapper main restricted universe multiverse

Ubuntu :: All Text Appearing Blurry In Crunchbang?

Apr 13, 2009

I've been using Crunchbang for a little while, and I've started to notice that I'm actually having to squint to see the text on every site (as well as the text used in the menus). What's weird is that these same sites look great in Ubuntu (I can actually see them and what not), but for whatever reason all of the text is blurry in crunchbang.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound On CrunchBang 8.10 Using ES 1869 ISA Card?

Jan 2, 2010

I ran into this issue while setting up a Compaq DeskPro SB PD1000 Series computer, using CrunchBang Lite 8.10 as the OS. After some diagnosis, I'm reasonably certain that the issue is something that would affect all Ubuntu variations, so I marked this thread that way.

The issue is that the sound was not working. Since the sound card on this machine was an old ISA PNP (plug-and-play) card, I assume it was just not detected automatically.The output of command 'lsmod' showed no sound modules were loaded, so I figured that loading the correct driver would solve the issue. Command 'lspci' didn't show the card (because it's ISA), so I installed the 'pnputils' package ('sudo apt-get install pnputils') and looked at the output of command 'lspnp -v'.

The lspnp output showed a card was present but not active, and identified it as an ESS1869. There's an appropriate ALSA module called 'snd-es18xx', so I loaded that using 'sudo modprobe snd-es18xx' -- since the driver is plug-and-play compatible, no further options should be needed.The module loaded fine, and 'lspnp -v' now shows the card is active. Also, the output of 'aplay -l' shows a card is seen -- 'ESS AudioDrive ES1869', which appears to be the correct hardware. However, I still get no sound, and trying to launch 'alsamixer' returns an error message about the default device not being present.

Ubuntu Networking :: Compaq 6720s - Cannot Get Crunchbang Or (8.10) To See The Wireless

Feb 11, 2010

I'm totally new to Ubuntu and have just set my laptop up to dual boot. It is an HP Compaq 6720s. I am running crunchbang just now. And am running Ubuntu from the live CD to look at things and familiarise myself.

My laptop has the Broadcom wireless card inbuilt. BUT.. I cannot get Crunchbang or the Ubuntu (8.10) to see the wireless. Is there some little thing I am missing or something that I should set up that I don't know about?

General :: Using A Live CD Of CrunchBang To Install Chkdsk To USB Drive?

Jan 17, 2011

My PC has been blue screening since yesterday, and I can't boot into Windows, which the rest of my family needs. I tried to repair from this live CD, but to no avail. If I had a XP Install disk, I'd be OK, but... I don't. I've read around, and it seems that I just need to run chkdsk, but that doesn't run under Linux, and there is no program to do the same under Linux. install and run chkdsk from a USB flash drive?

Hardware :: Acer P215H Monitor 21.5 - Widescreen Crunchbang Horizontal Position

Sep 25, 2010

I have tried it with several window managers, xfce, gnome, kde, etc...OK, have tried every thing the monitor its self will let me do (horizontal position, clock) The screen works fine in lower resolutions. It does not work on 1920 x 1080 which is what the monitor says it will do, and it does it just fine under Ubuntu and Fedora as well as winders. I guess basically i just need to know if there are any tricks you all may know or if you can direct me to a place where i may find linux driver for this monitor because im at a loss, BTW it does this on all slackware based distros.

Hardware :: Connect Linksys WPC54gs (bcm4318) Wireless Adapter In CrunchBang?

Feb 11, 2010

I recently tried to install Crunchbang on my IBM Thinkpad T20 laptop. Everything went OK as far as I can tell (I still have to adjust acpi and display settings), but I cannot get my laptop to connect to the internet via wireless (wired connection works fine). I've done a good deal of searching online, and I realize that my wireless adapter (wpc54gs, bcm4318 chipset) is problematic in linux, and that b43-fwcutter is typically required. I did install b43-fwcutter, and it seemed to install OK, but nothing subsequently happened when I opened networkmanager. I'm not sure at this point if my problem is that I don't know how to configure any wireless adapter in crunchbang, or if it is that my particular adapter is not being recognized.

General :: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" R20110207 Install Hangs - Detecting Network Devices

I was wondering if anyone had any issues with this. I recently tried installing CrunchBang and it got stuck while detecting the network device. (Would not recover)I had the same issue when attempting to install the Debian Testing release. I finally got Testing up and going but I had to start with Squeeze and then upgrade. Unfortunately I don't see how I could do that with Crunch Bang.

I tried the live cd of CrunchBang and found it to be a great minimalistic approach to a desktop.

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove The Installation And Get The Disk Space Back?

I have never had to do this before But I'm giving my laptop to my mother when my new one arrives and I need to remove the ubuntu installation and get the disk space back.

A few months ago the install stopped working. I can't remember what the error said... and tbh I can't be bothered to reboot twice to read it, but it has to be removed now anyways.

Had a look in windows to see if I can do anything in the disk manager, but it appears I can't. Oh wise ones, please, which path should one take?
