Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Get Old 9.4 To Work Correctly And Installed New In Fear Of Looseing Pics And Files?
Mar 11, 2010
i have a problem i have two ubuntu programs on my hard drive. i have old 9.4 and i installed new 9.10 in a partition. i was unable to get old 9.4 to work correctly and i installed new in fear of looseing pics and files. what do i do.
i am downloaded some e-books in the format .rar. when i am extracting them i am getting error as There is no command installed for RAR archive files. Do you want to search for a command to open this file?
trying all sorts of xorg.conf settings and searching out drivers. Out of the box, Debian moves the cursor when I touch the screen and move my finger across it. The only problem is that it doesn't process it correctly. It is moving faster, so it doesn't stay under it. It also doesn't land under my finger when I touch the screen.I am running a Panasonic Toughbook CF-29.Driver I am trying: evtouchHere is my current xorg.conf: Code: # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server
configuration file) # # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using # values from the debconf database. # # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
Since moving from centos 5.6 to fedora 15 a week ago I have been unable to get Last Pass firefox addon to work correctly. Those of you familiar to last pass will probably have seen the error message before in a variety of situations, namely "An error occurred while attempting to contact the server. Please check your internet connection." This error appears as soon as you log in (which it does manage to do) but instantly loses authentication - seems like the cookie expires almost instantly and therefore all saved sites/passwords require re-authentication with LP to use.
No network configuration has altered since the OS change, but F15 comes with firefox 4 rather than 3.6.x in centos. I know the last pass plugin should work with FF4 and have read suggestions about SSL/TLS version settings (which are 3.0 and 1.0 respectively) and disabling SELinx. Neither of these have made any difference.
I have bought a device with 10.1" capacitive touch screen. I have tried OpenSuse Milestone 5 (future release). It works great, but...My capacitive touch screen positioning cursor correctly but when I touch screen, it is like I clicking mouse for 9 times. One touch of icon of a program... and it opens it 9 times. I looked in hardware information in yast and the name of my touch panel in the following:
UNITEC Touch Panel (Win7) Vendor number: 205437
It works good, but not useful, because I cannot really touch any icon with my finger, it will open it 9 times...
Basically i had this problem before 11.04 as i tried the online update to 11.04 which kept failing so used a CD to update.Sometimes my internet works great, which only lasts a couple of minutes until its slow, and to the point where it cant even get 1% on a ..... upload.Since i duel boot i have tried the internet on Windows and it seems to work absolutely perfect.
Ubuntu wont detect my screen (mag bf22) correctly..that causes poor resolution (1152*864 max) my screen is able to at least a 1600*1200 resolution (witch i use in my windows boot ) is there anything i can do in order to fix or increase the resolution ?.. i have already installed the drivers correctly

So I currently have an issue with the 10.10 (64-bit) installer in that it does not recognized the Crucial SSD drive I have installed on my box correctly (long story and ultimately a separate topic but if anyone is interested). Initially I thought it was an issue with the hardware and RMA'd the drive however now realize that the likely culprit is the Ubuntu installer itself.
In order to test the rest of the hardware while waiting for the RMA'd drive I installed Ubuntu on a separate partition on the box and thus have a working secondary partition that I can boot from. From within Ubuntu it seems I am able to access/format the SSD correctly (using gparted); it seems that it is only the installer that cannot handle the drive...
Is there a way that I can install Ubuntu on a second partition from within Ubuntu itself?
I've installed fc10 but I got some problem with the audio driver for my Dell Vostro 1700. In particular line input doesn't work correctly neither the built in microphone, neither the line input. Is there a special driver?
I've been creating a website of late, and I've decided that I've come far enough along to get actual web development software (though gedit has served well). In Gnome, I have Bluefish, which is alright, but I also wanted something for KDE, since I also have Kubuntu 10.04 installed. I did some reading, and decided to see what all the fuss about Quanta Plus was about. I download the tar file, extract it, but when I run ./configure, it goes through a couple of steps and everything seems to be checking out okay.
Then I get an error message that says I am missing kde-config, and that I should check my KDE installation. I didn't do anything abnormal during the Kubuntu installation, so I can't imagine what I could do to check that installation. So then I go tot the INSTALL file, and try the alternative installation ./configure method, and I get an error message that says the the C compiler can't output an executable.
After doing software updates my system had to be rebooted after a kernel update, but when I checked in grub and using $ uname -r it reported that I was using 2.6.38-8-generic. Now ever time I install a program from the software centre it says that software can not be installed and gives me these details. I am using Ubuntu 11.04 in unity.
Installed ubuntu 10.10 on my dell D600. Install went fine, but after updates, the initial startup sound disappeared. Also had a bit of an issue getting the wireless card to work, eventually found the answer in the debian wiki and got the legacy installer for the b4X broadcomn chipset. Since then, everytime i install something, the system tells me the package was not installed correctly, but it does appear to install, except the stellarium.
I cannot access ubuntu anymore. I have ubuntu 10.04LTS Lucid Lynx. Ubuntu always prompts me to do updates. On the last update, the system wasn't able to find 4 files online. So it aborted the update and reverted to the previous state. On the next startup I could still access ubuntu. But the startup after that I got the inlog-screen (with username and password), and even with the correct username and password that's as far as it goes. In the lower right corner it says:
Install problem! The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly contact your administrator. What can I do to access ubuntu again? I can, when I reboot, start up in recovery mode (but I have no clue what to do with the prompt). I can also start up older 'kernels': kernel 2.6.32-30-generic, 2.6.32-29-generic, 2.6.32-28-generic, 2.6.32-24-generic. Each of them also has a recovery mode. Not sure if this is useful at all though. Laptop: AMD Turion(tm) 64 Mobile Technology MT-37, 1.99 GHz, 1,00 GB RAM.
I've installed CFEngine from source (for those of you who aren't familiar with the product, check out the wiki page) on an AIX server. I had some issues setting it up but finally got it to gmake successfully.
Once I run gmake install I get a very short output (based on other source builds) and no errors. I figure something is fishy and I now I need to figure out a good way to find if it was correctly installed. I tried:
find / -name cfeng* 2> /dev/null
Is there something analogous to rpm -qa | grep cfengine?
Here is a copy of my output in case anyone needs: [url]
CentOS 5 on a DSEB-DG motherboard. I am having trouble communicating with my APC UPS on /dev/ttyS0.
What I do know: UPS and cables are ok they work ok on my other server CentOS on a Intel S3210SH M/B Comparing the serial ports in the Hardware browser I notice that the Working system (Intel) is listed as such
The non working system lists
So I can see why the system does not work.
What I do NOT know: How can I correct this problem. Do I need to re-install the drivers? if so HOW.
Well I installed 10.04 and it seems to have been a success with one exception.My USB Logitac headphones don't work properly.There is sound that is so faint it is incomprehensible.They worked fine on 9.10.
I just installed madwifi on my MSI laptop with an Atheros AR5001 wifi card & Lucid. As far as I can see and according to System -> Administration -> Hardware drivers the install was successful and the card + driver is up and running. However, I don't see any wireless network (my windows PC can see about 5 wireless networks). I tried it with the network manager applet as well as with wicd. If I try to connect to "Hidden Wireless Network" via nm-applet, it will start to connect for a while but is unable too (although I supply it with the correct WEP settings & key) So, I'm unable to use my wireless network. What am i doing wrong?
Some information about my system: iwconfig Code: lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wifi0 no wireless extensions. ath0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated [Code].....
I've been at this for hours now, also tried ndiswrapper and ath5k drivers with no luck
I was using simple backup config to backup home to an external drive and it was working fine for the past week or so and today after the backup the computer was restarted and I am unable to log on. I get an error message saying. "the configuration defaults for gnome power manager have not been installed correctly "
I did some googling and the problem is that / is full. I have been trying for the past three hours to delete some space on / so that I can log on. I used ctr-alt-f1 and I can log on there but whatever command I use to delete the root trash it fails. I get an error message saying /root/.local/share/Trash/files/ is not a file or directory.
delete root trash so I can log onto this computer. I have used every variant of sudo rm -r /root/.local/share/Trash/files/ that I could find including one using Chmod. I have already tried the commands found in this tutorial [URL]
I just tried to start up Ubuntu and got the following error message. "The configuration deaults for gnome power manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator."
I then get a black screen, with the menu bar at the bottom, and a choice of who to log in as. No matter who I choose I get the same error message and then it takes me back to the same screen. It also gives me the choice of what session to use but again, no matter what I choose it just takes me back to the error message and the same screen. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on an Eeepc 901. I have the Netbook version installed, but I was using the desktop session. The last time my computer worked I ran update manager and it updated some Intel driver i think. Sorry I can't remember the exact details. Not sure if this is something to do with it.
I'm running 10/11 on a toshiba satellite. i kinda got tired of loosing stuff because i mis-timed the battery discharge, so some months ago i pulled the battery and just ran on the adapter (back ground, i don't know if it's nothing, related to, or caused the problem).
monday morning fired her up - boom got the power "gnome manager not installed correctly"message. tuesday, googled gnome then power then... you get the route, and found Fedoraforum.org, read the stuff, did the yum remove...., did the yum install.... everthing seemed cool. 2nd reboot she stopped at the "f/infinity/balloon" kinda logo.
i went to verbose startup and - all sorts of services were failing; the word deprecate(d, ing, tion) came up a lot "device full..." came up a fair bit as well. when i tried the "yum remove" approach again i got [rpmdb: write: 0x1fd48b0, 8192: No space left on device]. similarily on "yum install" same kinda stuff - deprecation, BaseExpection, deprecated..... kinda long winded. up till now (13 years)

I want to upgrade Ubuntu 10.10 installed through Wubi to 11.04. Now, Windows doesn't work. I can't upgrade Ubuntu by it because it is impossible to download files. Can I upgrade it without connecting Ubuntu to the Internet and starting Windows?
What it does is, if you do something to change anything on the screen, for example, highlighting text, or switching from one tab/menu in an application to another. The screen doesn't show the change. The only way to SEE the change is to do something else to the screen, like grabbing and moving the application around, or scrolling the page of a website, etc. If you don't do that, you won't see what's really on the screen, but rather what WAS on the screen.
*) say you have an application open with 3 tabs: tab1, tab2, and tab3. *) Switch from tab1 to tab2 and you see no change on the screen. *) Switch from tab2 to tab3 and you see tab 2 on the screen, NOT tab 3. *) Switch from tab3 to tab 2 and you see tab3 on the screen, and NOT tab2.
Or, if you're typing in this box to make a post, and you hit ctrl+a to select all, you see no change. If you click in the box to deselect all, then it looks like you've selected all text still. The only way to see what's currently on the screen is to scroll the text box or page just a bit, or, if you're using an application, then you'd have to move it around on the screen a bit.
As i've said, the nVidia drivers are installed and working, as well as compiz, etc.
Code: [=v=]$ lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RD890 Northbridge only single slot PCI-e GFX Hydra part (rev 02) 00:02.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RD890 PCI to PCI bridge (PCI express gpp port B)
Also, i did BOTH the dracut thing, and the extra kernel paramter in the grub.conf. So, nouveau is blacklisted. Oddly enough though, i do NOT have this problem when using the nouveau driver...
Also, fwiw, i think that i should mention that i'm not using the "Desktop Settings > Enable Desktop Effects" method, because i always seem to have problems with getting certain features to work, like the background for the cube skydome, etc. How i do it is that i install a package called compiz-manager, and i have it set to run at session start. This makes all of the compiz features work fine. One thing that i've noticed though, is that on my other workstation, i haven't set that up yet, and it seems that is is NOT having the same issue. While compiz-manager was running, i tried to use the "desktop settings" method, and it crapped out and reverted back to the old school desktop. I then tried it again, and it reloaded compiz, and there is no screen update issues now. So it seems that you have to have both of them running in order to get all of the compiz options to work, and not have the screen refresh issue?
