Got to say first off, I have LOVED the 10.10 release, absolutely adore it. Only problem that I have noticed thus far, is that when I use any of the non standard buttons, it causes my left clicking to stop working.
It's not a big deal but something that does come in handy every once in a while =/
I'm trying to configure my Microsoft Intellimouse 3000 in Ubuntu 10.04 and am not really having any luck. Basically all I want is to have the thumb button set as my back command. And of course if that's easy then I would want to assign commands to all buttons.
I've trolled the forums for about 30 mins or so already looking this up, but can't seem to find any solutions. Most threads seem to end with either a "report to launchpad" or they just end without resolution. So in case I've missed a solved thread:
Plugging my Kodak C503 in gives inability to mount due to lock issues, the infamous -60 lockout. However, I get TWO icons in metacity, neither are mounted/will mount. Turning the cam off removes both, and I can't get down to only one. Not sure if this is because it's reading the camera's internal memory + my SD card.
So, I pulled the SD card out, and jacked it into my card reader in my lappy. no dice. In fact, none of my SD cards work; leading me to believe I need to find drivers for it.
Notes: (1)It's a Pavillion ZD7000 (2)nothing pops up in fdisk (3)I really don't want to load up windows
I like to watch NASA TV - [URL].., however when I go there Ubuntu says I need the Microsoft Media Server Protocol plugin and it offers to search for it. The search finds no acceptable plugin. I have tried this in Firefox and Google Chrome.
I have a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 3000 v2 and Microsoft Explorer Mouse Model 1362. The biggest issue I have right now is with the keyboard. The keyboard will start cutting out and not responding to keys. As soon as the cpu load drops then all is well. I have a PS2 keyboard that I keep plugged in just in case the load stays high and I need to type something. The mouse and the keyboard have seperate usb dongles, and when the keyboard is having issues the mouse is still working great. This tells me that either the USB radio for the keyboard gets turned off, or that something on my machine is weird. I have seen the EXACT same behaviour on 32bit and 64bit linux distros.
CPU: AMD X3 720 oc'ed to 3.22GHZ MOBO: Biostar RAM: 8GB Video: HIS ATI 4890 (using FGLRX) HD: Samsung 1TB 7200RPM drive OS: Ubuntu 10.10 (tested also with Fedora 14, OpenSUSE 11.3)
Note: it happens with very little load and high load. Of course high load it happens all the time.
I have a Pure Evoke Flow radio that connect to my wireless router for streaming internet radio, this works fine. It also has the functionality to connect to a hard drive over wifi and play any MP3 files on it and it runs on Linux.
With Windows (sorry) I just click on the folder and make it Shareable, on the Radio I then set it to search for servers and it finds my wife's PC and plays her music.
I have (I believe) set my music directory on Ubuntu 9.10 to be shareable, it downloaded and installed a couple of files including samba and then rebooted. However my Radio cannot see it.
I have just replaced my ailing Microsoft Natural Elite keyboard which has surprisingly served me well for about 11 years.. I've replaced it with the (wired) Microsoft Natural 4000 which all is working fine on except for the Zoom slider. It'd be handy to be able to map it somehow and so far no luck. There is also the Microsoft 7000 which is a wireless keyboard which appears to have the same slider key. It just creates repeated events when held up or down, nothing really special.
I've tried xbindkeys per some results on google, but it won't map anything >255. I keep reading about "keytouch" but not quite sure how to use it and seems a bit kludgy, but if that's the best solution I can try it again.
I'm unable to use the extra macro keys of my Sidewinder X6 keyboard in linux; I've tried to get the scancodes of the keys following the instructions in [url] but the program don't show me any scancode when I press the macro buttons.
I like to view some tv-streams of missed programs and other stuff, but more and more Microsofts Silverlight is used. The alternative Moonlight does not work, well..., it probably will if I accept to install a Mircosoft Media Pack (!), and to do so, I have to accept a Microsoft EULA..[URL]..Excepting something from Microsoft... I am not in favour of doing that on my lovely Ubuntu-machine..
I have an Acer Aspire 3680 running 10.04. It has four buttons on the top left side of the keyboard (http://images.tigerdirect.com/SkuIma...5-AS3680-e.JPG) but I want to make them do specific things (like open the terminal, or firefox). How would I go about doing this?
I want to build a computer inside my car mainly for having ALL my music in the car's hard drive. I want to run ubuntu (or ubuntu netbook edition) on it and be able to navigate quickly without using a mouse. Running programs is no problem but navigating any music players without a mouse is terrible. Are there any music players that have an ipod/xmb interface and are easy to navigate using mainly the arrow keys/enter? I have considered just using a touchscreen but I really want to find a way so all I need is a keyboard with 5 or 6 keys.
I was trying to change the mounting point of a usb external drive from '/media/disk' to '/media/Movies'
Here is were the stupid part takes over... I right clicked on the desktop icon for the device and selected Properties. From there I selected the Volume tab and in there I changed the mounting point to '/media/Movies' It accepted it and said the changed would take place when I unmounted it and remounted it. However, when I did this it now says it cannot be mounted as it says mount_point contains invalid characters usually /
Unfortunately, now I cannot get back into the properties to remove my error.
Video is ok, but never any sound. I went through and made sure the HDMI is selected as the audio device and I upgraded to the latest driver binary.
HDMI sound works without the ATI proprietary driver installed, but the needed resolution is not available and the picture overlaps the edges on my 32" LCD. At least I know it is not a hardware issue. ALSA is loaded and selected as the sound manager, but the volume controls don't appear in the ALSA slider console.
I tested the cable and display on another computer. I am using a new Gigabyte GA-MA78LM-SH2, it is the integrated video.
I got my hands on my first real server hardware yesterday - a PIII 600 MHz COMPAQ Proliant 3000 with 1.8 GB RAM, Smart Array 3200 controller and 4x18.2GB SCSI ULTRA 3 hard drives. RAM is upgraded from original and USB card added - otherwise hardware arrangement appears to be original.
Minimal 10.04 installed (35 minutes boot to boot) as Server 10.04 could not detect CD drive. My problem? Everything works but it does not look right. Probably my bigger problem?? I know almost nothing about RAID and the more I read the more ethereal my understanding seems to become.
When installing, I chose to install with LVM on c0d0. Grub written to MBR. I have posted df -l, fdisk -l and lshw output below. Would someone tell me if this looks correct and, possibly, offer some pointers if it does not.
i love linux, everything 'bout it, and i'll gladly switch to it, but I have only one little problem. On windows i usually watch tv on my computer (and i play my xbox 360 too ) using a LifeView 3000 TvTuner.
I wasn't sure weather to post here or on the minecraft forums.
OS: Ubuntu 11.04 x86 CPU: Intel core i5 sandy bridge 2410M GPU: Intel HD 3000 (Integrated) RAM: 8 gigs ddr3
So I got my new laptop a few days ago,loaded up ubuntu.After starting up minecraft to connect to my server I realised that the fps was going from 50 to 1 and back to 50 again EVERY SECOND so obviously this isn't normal.After a quick google search every one on windows seems to have no problem. There are no results for linux.
Edit: Yes I know why the are you using a x86 os on a computer with 8 gigs of ram? At the time of installation all I had was no internet access and a live cd from LUD with ubuntu on it
Ubuntu10.10.i want a media player with all media codecs.it should able to play all formats of videos and audios so please suggest me a media player.(i used km player in windows i want a media player like that)
I have Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 with this card, its just works without any configuration but I have a big problem.
I start Kaffeine 1.0-svn3 and I can see the last dvb-T channel but when I want to change to other channel I can't see it, I have to restart Kaffeine, or wait to get the "Read error from:" error press Ok and select the channel.
The driver is installed when I installed Ubuntu 10.10 it asked me to install this. Is not a problem of driver I think. It is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312
I found out the following: 1. I tried rfkill unblock all with negative results 2. rfkill list phy0: Wireless LAN, Soft blocked: no, Hard blocked: yes 3. look in the file system: NetworkingEnabled=true, WirelessEnabled=false, WWANEnabled=true
Is this really not supported by Ubuntu ?? username: melfrimarlyne e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have installed the gspca2 driver for my webcam, but in kopete, I still get only a wierd multi colored/scrambled thick line across the top of the webcam screen and the rest remains blank. This is in Kopete.In Kopete, under video, under device, under input, it shows "sonixj" and the device is "USB camera". I know the webcam works in Win7/Vista/XP, but I am trying to get away from using those OSs.
I had tried the 1 click SuSE install of the gspca2 driver but it wouldn't complete the install. Doing it in YaST directly seemed to work but I still get the same bad screen when using the webcam, which has it's LED light up.
I recently put Linux back on my laptop (Vector) and I am trying to get any of the media players on it to recognize and play the music on my desktop, which is running Windows 7 Ultimate with WMP streaming music over my wireless network. I was wondering if this can be done, or if these features have yet, if ever, to be implemented.
I have a Dimension 3000 with 2GB RAM, a 500 GB disk with two, 250 GB partitions, one for XP and one for Linux. The machine has a 1 GB Ethernet expansion card to replace the 10/100 MB integrated Ethernet card. The BIOS was upgraded to A03, the latest version. My initial attempt to boot the Live CD of Kubuntu 10.04.2 32-bit desktop left me with a blank screen, the CD-ROM drive stopped and the hard disk light on. I used the power button reset to re-gain control of the machine. On the next try, I removed the "quiet splash --" from the end of the boot options, and the machine got much further, but did much complaining about sr0 which I believe is a reference to a software RAM drive.
I went through the BIOS setup screen (hit F2 on boot to access) and under "Integrated devices:Network Interface controller" I turned off the built in network interface since the machine is using the plug-in card mentioned above. I also put the floppy disk drive at the end of the "Boot sequence" parameter. I rebooted again with the same deletion of the "quiet splash --" from the end of the boot options and the boot took me to the desktop!
Alas, when I tried to install 10.04.2 from the desktop, the installation died at the 15% point with "[Errno 5] Input/output error". The included explanation pointed at problems with either the hard drive (brand new in my case) or the CD-ROM drive or the CD itself. I'm too tired right now to pursue this further, but I will try burning a new CD at a lower speed as suggested by the error's help information.
I'm also still concerned about the earlier complaints about sr0. It is conceivable that the problem with copying the files to the hard disk could relate to problems with a RAM buffer that is used in the copying process. I mention this to remind myself to pursue that as a possible culprit if re-burning the CD doesn't help.
