I have just upgraded to Lucid on Ubuntu. I am a long time Pidgin user. I tried using Empathy with Gwibber, but I can't get Gwibber to update my IM status(es) in Empathy, so I want to go back to using Pidgin. (Additionally, I can't get Skype to work with Empathy.)I installed pidgin-microblog and pidgin-mbpurple, and they allow me to view my Twitter feed in Pidgin and update my Twitter status in Pidgin. However, in Karmic, I was also able to specify certain "status availabilities" (one named "Twitter-Available" and one named "Twitter-Away", for instance) to have the IM status message for these statuses become populated with my Twitter feed. This capability seems missing in pidgin-mbpurple in Lucid (and it seems to be the only thing missing from Karmic).
Is there a way to have pidgin-mbpurple update certain "status availabilities" in Lucid (and I'm just missing something) or is this no longer possible?Equivalently, is it possible to have Gwibber update my status message in Empathy? (I just want to be able to update my status once on one of my three computers - and have it propagate to all my other accounts (IM and social networking) and computers).
The text entry box that you can normally type a message into when you click on your name in the top right of the screen is missing. It's there on my laptop, and I set up a couple of broadcast accounts and then noticed it was missing on my desktop. I've uninstalled and reinstalled gwibber and it's still not there.
I'm not quite sure what it's called, but it's the one with the speech-bubble next to my account name... I've looked everywhere, but because I don't know what it's called I can't find it.on the forum I can only find ways to get the mail icon back.
I miss seeing my picture in the MeMenu. Now that I've upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10, I notice it doesn't display there anymore. Does anyone know how I can add this feature back in? Not sure why this was removed, I thought it looked nice with the picture there.
I have installed ubuntu 10.04 yesterday. I also placed the indicator-applet to my top panel.
My question is: It is lacking the textbox. I see every detail that should be there in the menu, except for the input-textbox. Can anyone tell me how I can get this back?
I've been searching the forums, but could not find a solution (nor anyone else having this problem, though I remembered someone else stating the same issue before I experienced it, but I couldn't find it back... must be murphy's law )
Most of the times I open a program (either Evolution or Liferea) from the MeMenu, it appears shifted below. By this I mean that, even if the window is maximized, it does not reach the panel, leaving a strip where one can see behind. But, when one tries to click on anything, it behaves like if the window was in place.So, in order to click on some area, I have to aim some 50px or so above it. Of course this is not very comfortable. Stangely enough, this does no happen if I get the focus of Evolution or Liferea by some other means, such as Alt+Tab or clicking on the sidebar.
I have noticed that my battery-status applet icon, which appears next to the wireless symbol in the notification applet on the menu bar at the top of the screen, only appears for a second or two when I plug in my notebook and then disappears. It does not appear at all when the notebook is unplugged. just noticed this behaviorafter restarting with the new kernel
I'm on 10.04.I was curious to see the new features implemented (mainly geo-location) in Empathy, so I added their PPA and did an update. After updating, the notifications for Empathy become separated from the MeMenu (separate icons, no 'Chat' option is specified when I click the MeMenu), although I can still update my status by clicking on my user name.Does anyone know how to integrate the new Empathy back into MeMenu? If not, how can I roll back to the previous Empathy version that works with MeMenu?
I already checked the preferences of UM but the filtering is somewhat awkward -- i.e. you have choice to EITHER install silently security updates OR be notified about all updates. One does not exclude the other, but for UM apparently it does.
But I have similar yet different need -- be notified about ONLY security updates (so when I click to show the updates, I will see only them). The rest of the updates should be ignored -- unless the update is required by the other, security update package.
Everytime I install a package or use update manager I get the following message. Code: E: linux-image-2.6.32-22-generic: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 E: linux-image-2.6.32-23-generic: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 E: linux-image-2.6.32-24-generic: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 E: linux-image-generic: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured E: linux-generic: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured E: linux-headers-2.6.32-22-generic: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 E: linux-headers-2.6.32-23-generic: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 E: linux-headers-2.6.32-24-generic: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 E: linux-headers-generic: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured The install/upgrade appears to work but I'm getting concerned about the message continuing for so long.
I lost my entire Operating system and am now reinstalling. After installing SUSE 11.1 and updating it through the update icon in the status bar, I ended up with a complete update except for the update icon in the status bar now depicting a downward arrow. This equates to my not wanting to download a update/patch/whatever of a "Microsoft font file"!
However, there is no way to delete this option that I do not want. How do I get rid of the MS font update and bring the OS/system back to the Gecko symbol associated with taking care (updating) of updating my system without a thing from MS? To those who are bound to ask, I want nothing to do with MS, this should be sufficient.
This happened completely randomly. One day, my synaptic and update manager is working fine and the next day, I open one of them and get a error window that doesn't say anything (no details on the error). So, i tried the terminal, sudo apt-get update, and this message shows:
Reading package lists... Error! E: Problem parsing dependency Depends E: Error occurred while processing lib�tartup-notificamion0-dev (NewVersion1) E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_karmic_main_binary-i386_Packages E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
I have Ubuntu 11.0 installed.It is giving following error during update:
'E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, Eroblem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca_ubuntu_dists_natty_main _binary-i386_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'
After a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.10 I uninstalled empathy (im using skype). The empathy menu in the evolution indicator was gone after that.I also uninstalled gwibber. But the gwibber status indicator remains within the about-me panel... Uninstalling the gwibber package also removes the me-menu which I want to keep actually. Especially the shutdown/restart... part of it. See attachment.I know there is a shutdown panel-app...but its butt-ugly and it doesnt allow to logon/off.
In another thread I read that the gwibber status shouldnt be there if no account for it is configured... which it is not... I do use ubuntu-one though which is in the same menu... I saw that this issue was addressed at some bug report before, but not fixed yet...
Does anybody know a good workaround to get rid of the gwibber status in the panel while keeping the about me and the shutdown button?
I toyed with my desktop panels, and now I don't see my update notifications, although I can see every thing else. I have the notification area and indicator applt session on my panel but still can't see the update notification, when running "ps -A| grep update-notifier" I find it running.... what am I missing...
Does anyone know how to get this back? I started using 10.04 this weekend and was playing around with the new "MeMenu" and removed it from the menu bar. Now I can't seem to get it back. Its not found when I try to add to the panel and it isn't part of the Gwibber app anywhere either.
Or is there a way to just restore the bar to its default? I lost my logoff/shutdown menu button on the far right when I did that too.
I have just updated my 7.10 release to the final release patches/kernel for it (as a step in the process of upgrading the installation to 10.10) when I have come across a very disheartening problem.
Prior to this update, I was running VMWare Server 2.0 with its normaal admin console at localhost:8333 and an applet install under Applications -> System Tools -> VMWare Administration Console. Now that I have updated, both these are missing or inoperable.
However, the VMs hosted by the machine are still perfectly functional. I can login to the via Remote Desktop or VNC as the case may be.
I can also no longer see the /var/lib/vmware/Virtual Machines folder or any VMWare folder at all, even when using the full root login and permissions. Find and Search also show a disturbing lack of the 64Gb of VMDK files that are the running VMs.
Any clues as to how I can track down this invisible, but functional install? I do not want to proceed with another update until I get a solid backup of the VMDKs.
I am running UNR on an Asus T91MT and everything was working great until an update yesterday, my OS froze while updating and I had to do a hard reboot. Since, I have not been able to get wireless, and lshw does not even recognize the presence of a wireless device on the system.
For 9 days now I have been getting errors when trying to run Update Manager saying that ALL my keys are missing.

The title bars / window decorations are missing since the last update done about two days ago. I have AMD64 / nvidia 6600 / 2GB / compiz. Latest driver is installed for nvidia and it was working without any problems since 9.04. Now I find that desktop visual effects are selected as 'None' and I am unable to make it 'extra'. Earlier it was set as custom and I had no problems. I have searched the forums and tried many solutions without any success. Now I am running metacity (metacity --replace)with no visual effects, 'compiz --replace' brings back the problem . Is there any way of enabling visual effects // compiz now? Or do I have to re-instal the whole thing
