I no longer want that my system is updated from pre-released updates(lucid proposed). About 50 packages are from lucid proposed and i want to downgrade them all. I know how to downgrade a package but i don't know how to downgrade all the packages at once (so that all 50 packages would be downgraded simultaneously).

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid: Software Sources Still Showing Karmic?

Apr 27, 2010

After doing clean installs of the last two Ubuntu Releases, Jaunty and Karmic, I decided to try an upgrade to Lucid. The upgrade went well and I'm satisfied with it, however I have a question about the repositories.All the sources in /etc/apt/sources.list correctly point to Lucid, but in Software Sources / Other Software I still see references to Karmic. Is this something to be concerned about? Can I (or should I) change them to Lucid?

Ubuntu Installation :: PPA Not Updated In Lucid Lynx Sources.list

Aug 20, 2010

I'm trying to add PPAs in my Kubuntu Lucid Lynx installation.


$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/ppa
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv


But when I look in my sources.list, the PPA repository is not there. Nevertheless I SUSPECT I'm receiving it's updates.Is there a file that PPAs are being written to other than sources.list?Should I manually update sources.list in order to add this PPAs?

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic To Lucid Upgrade Will I Lose Settings?

May 30, 2010

if this is covered elsewhere. Could not find it (could be being blind) If I upgrade fro 9.10 to 10.04 LTS will I lose

1. My Gnome panel settings
2. My compiz fusion settings


3. Will EnvyNG still be able to manage m,y Nvidia drivers OK?

I realize there is always a risk with an upgrade but I was just wondering what you all thought the chances were that I may lose these settings.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Upgrade: Restore Default Desktop And Font Settings?

May 18, 2010

I upgraded from Karmic to Lucid recently. Before upgrading, I had customized my desktop on Karmic with Compiz, Emerald and new set of fonts. After upgrade (which appears to have gone smoothly, yay!), my desktop retained the previous appearance settings. I want to try the factory default gnome appearance settings for Lucid and still stuck with restoring fonts.

What I have done till now:

0. Enabled Visual Effects from Appearance menu.
1. Theme -> Changed to Human
2. Window Manager -> Still using Compiz
3. Window Decorator -> Switched from Emerald to GTK
4. Font -> Changed first 3 font types in the Font tab to Sans, size 10, 4th to Sans Bold and 5th to Monochrome. Rendering -> subpixel smoothing (LCD)

What I want:

1. Is this the default setting? Have I missed anything in restoring default settings?

2. I have done too many changes to firefox font rendering over time. How do I restore default 10.04 font settings for Firefox? I would ideally love to have an option in Ubuntu which would help me restore factory settings.

Ubuntu :: Latest Thunderbird On Lucid Lynx From Stable Mozilla Channel?

Nov 11, 2010

I am using Lucid Lynx (10.04.1) and I use Thunderbird from the official Ubuntu-Mozilla PPAs:


I see that each release of Ubuntu has only one supported version of Thunderbird - in case of Lucid Lynx it is 3.0 series. Is it possible for me to upgrade to 3.1 on Lucid Lynx through this official channel? I don't want the other two solutions to achieve this:

1. Download the latest Thunderbird directly from Mozilla website (No. Updating it manually for the next release is a pain and I don't want to get into it)

2. Upgrade to Maverick (No. I prefer LTS releases and want to stick to Lucid)

Ubuntu :: Cmpile Compiz 0.8.8 From Sources In Gnome (Lucid)?

Jun 12, 2011

Due to the fact that there is not Official or PPA available for the new stable Compiz 0.8.8 announced on 30th March 2011 [URl]... here is a guide to compile it from the sources. This guide works for Gnome env only; I wasn't able to compile the KDE part This procedure has been tested on Ubuntu Lucid and Maverick.

Create a backup of your active compiz settings:

cp -a $HOME/.config/compiz $HOME/.config/compiz.bak
Install the dependencies (Lucid):
sudo apt-get install build-essential libxcomposite-dev libpng12-dev libsm-dev libxrandr-dev libxdamage-dev libxinerama-dev libstartup-notification0-dev libgconf2-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libmetacity-dev librsvg2-dev libdbus-1-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libgnome-desktop-dev libgnome-window-settings-dev gitweb curl autoconf automake automake1.9 libtool intltool libxslt1-dev xsltproc libwnck-dev python-dev python-pyrex libprotobuf-dev libprotobuf5 protobuf-compiler python-sexy wget libfuse-dev

Ubuntu :: Lucid - Not Logging In According To The Login Screen Settings?

Jun 30, 2010

I want my Ubuntu 10.04 to login to an Xterm session every time, so I changed it to auto login to Xterm in the login screen settings. This worked fine until I went to do something in a gnome session again, and now even though it is still selected as logging into Xterm automatically, it logs into a Gnome session. Can anyone help me with fixing this?

Ubuntu :: Compiz Config Settings Manager In Lucid

Aug 2, 2010

So I decided a while ago to download the newest distribution release, Lucid Lynx, and try it out on a LiveCD. The first thing I installed onto the LiveCD environment was CompizConfig Settings Manager. One question I have about it is... Why are so many of the plugins missing or limited?

In 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope, there are many plugin options, and to be honest, I use a large quantity of them. For example, a plugin I use on 9.04 called "Reflection." For those of you who don't know, reflection allows you to show an image in window decorations and shadows. This plugin is completely missing from CompizConfig Settings Manager in 10.04!

Another example, this time a limited one, is the Animations plugin. It's missing the option for closing animation called "Burn." This is an animation I LOVE showing off and using, yet it's... Gone.

Am I missing something? Did I do something wrong on installing it? Is there a way to get the parts that are missing?

Just in case you're wondering how I installed it, it was the popular method of using GNOME-Terminal and typing:

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Debian Installation :: Keep Sources.list At "Lenny" Or "stable"?

Apr 15, 2010

I am currently running debian Lenny on my desktop. I was wondering, what happens if your sources.list is set to stable as opposed to Lenny? Does it mean that it would update straight to Sqeeze when it is finished with testing and released as stable? Is it reccomended to have this "rolling update" or should I have my sources set to "Lenny" and then change it to Squeeze when it becomes stable?

Software :: Lucid-wx Instead Of Lucid ?

Mar 23, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 10 and when checking the version using system|about it says:


You are using Ubuntu 10.10 - the Maverick Meerkat - released in October 2010 and supported until April 2012. Now, I run some shellscripts and they check the distro. lucid-wx is not in supported versions but lucid is. Where can I change the lucid-wx to lucid?

I want to compile a kernel to add a few options that are not enabled in the huge-smp- that comes with slackware. specifically, i want to add TASK_DELAY_ACCT and TASK_IO_ACCOUNTING so that I can use iotop.

Ubuntu Installation :: Reverting To PHP 5.2 On Lucid?

May 11, 2010

After upgrading to Lucid, I found that I still had a need for php 5.2, instead of the 5.3 that is installed during the Lucid upgrade. I tried the method found here:


I added in /etc/apt/preferences.d/php all the packages that I use for php, including libapache2-mod-php5, installed, and ran a2enmod php5 before restarting apache. However, my browser still tells me if I want to download php files on my server. I cleared the browser cache, a2enmod'ed again, restarted apache2 again, and still the same.

how to get php scripts running again on apache.

EDIT: I should note I can get SOME php files parsed by apache, but some are not parsed. All files reside in some subdirectory of /var/www/.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Freezing / What To Do?

May 30, 2010

I'm having a problem with a new install of Lucid freezing a few seconds after booting up. Completely frozen - ctrl-alt-backspace or alt-SysReq-R-E-I-S-U-B have no effect. The md5sum of the installation iso was all right, the disk check was all right, & the memory test was all right. It's a GeForce 5500 graphics card, but I haven't installed any special drivers. Booting up to the command line (netboot) helps a bit but it still crashes after from a few minutes to a couple of hours. From the command line I tried removing compiz & compiz-core but it makes no difference. I also updated the installed packages, including to the 2.6.32-22 kernel, but no difference. This has happened with Jaunty & Karmic, but Intreprid runs fine, as did Windows XP. Anyone have any ideas what I could do to find out the cause ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Wireless NIC For Lucid 32?

Jul 3, 2010

I am doing a clean installation of 32 bit Lucid.

I have in a box of parts two wireless NICs, an Asus WL-1380G V2 and a Trendnet TEW-423PI C1.0R.

Googling shows that people have had a lot of trouble with these two NICs in older Ubuntu versions. Am I likely to have any success with either of them in Lucid?

Is there a list of supported wireless NICs for Lucid?

Does anyone have any recommendations for a choice of NIC?

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Get Lucid Running

Jul 19, 2010

Tonight I installed Lucid(10.04) on my laptop, which is a VAIO VPCCW. The first problem I faced was the blank screen when trying to install Ubuntu. That was solved by pressing F6 and activating "nomodeset" Afterwards, I had to edit Grub, removing splash and quiet and adding nomodeset, to get it running.

Because of the low resolution and lack of support for effects, I intalled the proprietary driver for nvidia and restarted. Now I'm getting a message saying the display cannot be found etc and it is running is low graphics mode. When trying to open nvidia-settings, I get "You do not appear to be using nvidia X driver. edit your X configuration file(just run nvidia-xconfig as root) ... " And obviously, running nvidia-xconfig as root didn't change anything.

I was forced to move to Windows a month ago as a result of this issue(bought a new laptop) and now I see the problem is not resolved yet.

Btw, OS: 10.04 64bit Graphics Card: NVIDIA
