Ubuntu :: Maverick: Messed With Updates - Lost Video

Mar 22, 2011

I was following the link below on my Acer trying to get my FN brightness adjust keys to actually work, instead of just showing the dialog. [url].... After following the steps and restarting, i can hear ubuntu start and the login screen appear, but i cannot see anything. Brightness keys do not work. So i hold my left shift to get the boot menu. Neither the primary boot or it's recovery method work (Kernel 2.6.35-28-generic). However if i choose 2.6.35-27-generic it boots right up like nothing is wrong. So how do i get my primary kernel working right again?

General :: Messed Up And Lost Graphical Desktop And Login Screen?

Jun 14, 2010

I was in the middle of deleting the Xine movie player, and clicked a box wrong. I lost everything possible on the graphical desktop as well as a log in screen for Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic). Since then I did a few things:1. apt-get install ubuntu-desktop2. apt-get install kubuntu-desktop3. apt-get remove kubuntu-desktopAfter all this, I still have the login screen for Kubuntu. But I don't want that. I want to get back to the Ubuntu login screen, and the orange colored desktop. Right now -- after I log in -- I only have a terminal to use. And I have the blue background of Kubuntu. What do I need to do to get rid of the Kubuntu graphics and back to my original login screen, plus the Ubuntu (karmic) graphics and toolbars / menus?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulseaudio Not Working After Latest Updates On Maverick?

Dec 10, 2010

I've been running Maverick 64bit fine on my Dell M1330 laptop until a couple of days ago. After the latest updates (I guess to kernel 2.6.35-24-generic), sound stopped working properly. The sound indicator applet tells me that the sound system is not responding. The login sound doesn't play anymore.

On the other hand Rhythmbox plays and I can hear the music. I can adjust Rhythmbox volume but not the global volume (as neither the sound indicator applet nor the multimedia volume keys on my laptop work).

it works flawless. Here is what I get if I try to run pulseaudio from the terminal

$ pulseaudio
E: module-ladspa-sink.c: Master sink not found
E: module.c: Failed to load module "module-ladspa-sink" (argument: "sink_name=ladspa_output.mbeq_1197.mbeq

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Gui In Jaunty/kde3 To Maverick Upgrade?

Jun 14, 2011

I seem to have made a hash of moving a machine from jaunty to maverick. It used the kde3 remix, and pearson's site seems to be bouncing up and down, mostly down, for that at the moment. I've ended up with a machine that is console only. I've tried installing ubuntu-standard, which put a bunch of things on, but still no GUI.

staying with KDE3 would be nice, but I don't have time to mess with it. I find KDE4 painful, and have been put off by the ideological "purity" that caused the gnome split since its inception. I guess that leaves me with Unity. But how do I get the bloody thing up. Heck, xdm & fvwm sounds pretty good right now, too.

Ubuntu :: Adjusted Input Sound Volume And Maverick Lost The Plot?

May 10, 2011

I'm running Maverick on an HP dv6 laptop. I tried recording a video via VLC with the machine's 'TrueVision' webcam. The result seemed to lack audio, so I had a look in preferences > sound. The input tab had the mute button ticked, so I unticked it and tried adjusting the level (while realising I was probably just configuring the mic port and not the webcam's inbuilt mics).

Then things turned bad: pointer became sluggish, and changes I made to the level slider took ages to be reflected visually on screen. I queued up a pile of clicks on the 'close' button and went away for a while. On return, I was met with a box inviting me to stop a script with some screen-width-long incomprehensible name, which of course I did.

Now the system's in a state which sees windows missing title bars (tho' not menu bars) and (more problematically) the upper and lower bars on the desktop absent. I issued a hibernate command from the terminal in the hope that on waking the system would be 'fixed', but nothing changed. I tried alt-tabbing to access my open applications and close them gracefully but this command is ignored. I have 'zillions' of apps going with unsaved data and am not sure what to try next. I'd be happy just to be able to task switch to each open prog and exit it gracefully then restart. But my knowledge of the command line is such that your help is required =) .

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video File Colours Messed Up Every Time Restart?

Nov 12, 2010

every time I reboot and play a video file the colours are messed up. I need to manually increase then decrease the hue or saturation to get the picture to normal in smplayer. The colours aren't competely inversed as in the common bug with the totem sliders, they're just far too red and bright.Smplayer is the latest from PPA. I've checked the totem settings and everything is OK. It only takes two key presses to resolve but it's a pain, to be honest, so if anyone knows what causes this and how to fix it permanently I'd be much obliged.

Ubuntu :: Skype Rendering - Image From My Webcam Is Clear But The Video From The Person On The Other End Is Messed Up

Feb 13, 2011

whenever I video chat with someone the image from my webcam is clear but the video from the person on the other end is messed up. It is as if it does not render correctly, it's washed out and it looks like a full image and 2 cut off images, one on the bottom and one the top of the full image. Has anyone else encountered this? The PC has a Radeon 9800 Pro AGP card with the ATI drivers installed. Other video plays fine, ....., dvd, avi and mkvs.

Failing that, what's the safest sequence top kill these processes and start again? This time I'll remember to use screen to prevent connection loss.

General :: Internet Connection Lost After Ubuntu 10 Latest Updates

Feb 14, 2011

I installed ubuntu 10 just yesterday. Everything was working just fine. The auto-update function advised me to download and install the latest updates and so I did. It was over 300 MB. I installed it, did a reboot and my internet connection was lost. I tried a few things I found on this forum yesterday. Nothing worked. I can go on-line on the same computer using windows 7. But I always have to reboot to try the different solutions. All right that's fixed! But now I just have to fix Firefox...

Fedora Networking :: Lost WPA Support After Updates

Mar 5, 2011

Running FC14 64 bit with KDE. I have an atheros wireless card that was working fine for months. Just recently I downloaded and installed some updates I got automatically. After a reboot, I have suddenly lost my wireless connection. I am still able to connect to unsecured networks but my network uses WPA and the status of the connection always freezes on "Awaiting Authentication". When connecting, it pops up the secrets windows asking for the wpa key even though its already entered. I've reset my home router several times to test various configurations with no encryption and with WPA. My key is correct but it will not connect. I've researched this issue and found others to have the same problem though their fixes have not worked for me.

I've gone through a few things. Wireless radio button on, networking and wireless enabled in fedora. Card still shown in lspci and with iwconfig. Funny enough, there was no wireless card listed in Network Manager. So I added the connection again and set it to be controlled by network manager and start on boot. No difference.

I'm wondering exactly what was updated that caused this. I didn't pay attention to what updates they were. This update occurred 3/5/2011. I've tried booting to the two previous backup kernels, but that doesnt help either. Also ran dmesg | grep wlan0 to find that the device was not active or ready but I could still connect to unsecured networks. So I'm stumped and would really rather not reinstall. Besides, when I get the updates again, it will probably do the same thing. Is this a bug? I would post more information but I am not with my box at the moment.

OpenSUSE :: Lost KDE Desktop Effects After Updates

Aug 27, 2011

I am Running opensuse 11.4 (64 bit) KDE desktop with all the updates & proprietary ATI driver installed. My processor is Athlon II X2 250 & motherboard is gigabyte MA785GPM-UD2H. I have 4 GB (2 +2) of DDR 2 RAM installed. I have turned off automatic updating & usually update my machine once a week. But just couple of days ago I had just updated my system and KDE desktop effects stopped working!!

I went to the Application launcher -> Configure Desktop -> Desktop Effects and everything was grayed out!! except for the following message Desktop effects are not available on this system due to the following technical issues:"

But, what technical Issue?? there was nothing else written! Googling for the issue has actually left me more confused; but I am still posting the content of my ~/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc file

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Constant Mini-freezes In Audio/video In Maverick?

Dec 18, 2010

I've been goign nuts trying to find the source of this niggling problem I've had since upgrading to Maverick. Whenever I'm watching anything I will get these short freezes of about half a second before he file continues playing. It will happen on average 3-4 times per hour on a video file.

For MP3 playback it's even worse, I'll get a stutter every couple of minutes, sometimes several in the same song. I reformatted completely and installed Maverick from scratch. For about a day I thought I had it sorted but then it started happening again.

I checked dmesg and there are a number of worrying lines like this:


[40616.032093] ata1.00: failed command: WRITE DMA
[40616.032108] ata1.00: cmd ca/00:20:df:b6:82/00:00:00:00:00/e0 tag 0 dma 16384 out
[40616.032111] res 40/00:00:00:4f:c2/00:00:00:00:00/10 Emask 0x24 (host bus error)
[40616.032118] ata1.00: status: { DRDY }


The thing is that this problem occurs on all three of my hard drives (2 SATA, one IDE) so it's extremely unlikely all three have become damaged on the day I updated. Could this be a kernel problem of some sort? On an unrelated note all but one of my USB ports fails to recognise any portable music players.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Intel Integrated Video In Maverick - Can't Enable Desktop Effects

Oct 17, 2010

I am fairly new to Ubuntu, so I'm sorry if I don't include any necessary information. Installed 10.10 rc from CD about 3 days prior to official release and everything was working fine... went about installing software and setting up laptop for use. About one week later, got prompted for upgrade and went ahead through update manager. Now can't enable desktop effects. Right after upgrade had a period where title bars of windows would not display... menus were present, but no title bars, no maximize/minimize/close buttons and no dragging windows to new locations on screen That has since resolved itself. Spent quite awhile searching forums, created xorg.conf at one point, later deleted it.

Also the V4l Control Panel seems not to affect the picture in Skype. The camera uses the uvcvideo driver.

General :: Intermittent Stuttering In Video And Audio Playback Since Upgrading To Maverick

Jan 2, 2011

I've been having a problem with intermittent stuttering in video and audio playback since upgrading to Maverick (it also happened when I briefly installed Lucid). It started out as the odd skip every 20 minutes or so but now it can happen 5 or 6 times in 10 minutes when watching a film. I've tried:

reformatting and clean installing using a half-dozen players installing every codec I could think of (only after the normal ones wouldn't help) diangosing my 3 hard drives (the problem occurs on them all and they're not in a RAID setup) changing then changing back my video drivers disabling pulseaudio and ubuntuone-sync (these were not installed in my previous, working setup) looking at every relevant log file (mplayer, smplayer, demsg...) I know of running ubuntu's testing utilities I'm out of ideas. Going back to Jaunty is the only solution I'm pretty sure will work but it's not exactly ideal. It will be a few months a least before I'm able to install a completely new distro.

Ubuntu :: Lost Ability To Suspend And Hibernate - MKV Video Run Slowly

Mar 28, 2011

I have recently downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 and installed it onto my laptop, alongside with pre-installed Windows XP. I'm very happy with Ubuntu and find it a lot better than many other operating systems. However, I have stumbled across a problem recently: I don't seem to be able to suspend ("sleep") the laptop and neither can I hibernate it. These options worked so far and if I remember correctly, this started when I updated my kernel to 2.6.38. Since then, I've lost the options to sleep and hibernate, and when I close my laptop lid, I get a message "Unable to suspend".

Also, a side question - why does video run so slowly on Ubuntu using VLC? This happens to me when watching .mkv videos. Many frames get skipped and there are visible artifacts, in fact, so much that the video can barely be watched. Actual FPS drops below 1, so one frame stays on screen several seconds. I tried tweaking the options, choosing different demuxers, codecs and graphics output. This happens only while running on batteries and works fine under Windows, I have no idea why. Under Windows the video is played using Media Player Classic and ffdshow, if it makes any difference.
