I recently installed ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick) on my new laptop. Sound was working just fine until today morning, when all of a sudden no sound would come out of my system. It is not a hardware problem as sound is working fine on windows.
Update Manager prompted me to run an update, which I did, then Flash stopped working after I ran ran the update.I first noticed the problem when I was using Chromium, trying to view a video on the BBC website, which displayed the message "Cannot play media. You do not have the correct version of the flash player. Download the correct version".So, I clicked on the download link, which took me to the Adobe site where I selected APT for Ubuntu 10.04+, but that didn't make any difference, so I then tried to view the same video using Firefox, but that displayed the same message.Could someone please tell me what I need to do, in order to get Flash working again?
Debian 5 64 bitGnome, using compiz-fusion.Compiz had been working well ever since I installed it last year; a couple of days back there was a debian update (I think and x-server update was there); now compiz does not work anymore. if I select compiz as the window manager from the cmpiz-fusion icon, I cannot move/resize wndows, the titlebar disappears.
I had Bluetooth PAN network working fine in Lucid. For some reason (mainly hardware) I had to upgrade to Maveric. After that my Bluetooth PAN network stopped working at all. I found out that server host do not even expose any PAN or GN profiles. The only profile it exposes is "Hands-free audio". Setting PAND_ENABLE=1 in '/etc/default/bluetooth' did not have any affect. I attempted to start PAND in listening mode and it exposed PAN profile but any connection was unsuccessful. When I try to connect to any other PAN profile it also had no success with 'Permission denied' message.
I'm using Maverick and since yesterday, my wireless hasn't been working. It was working before with Maverick and I don't recall doing any updates that might have changed wireless configurations.
By "doesn't work" I mean it doesn't recognizes any networks, as if the wireless was turned off (there's this button on laptops, but it's turned on). I had that problem some time ago, but rebooting solved the problem, which, now, didn't.
I have 10.04 installed and Update Manager has worked fine for months, until about 2 weeks ago. When I ask Update Manager to update its indexes, I get this error message returned almost immediately
"Method http has died unexpectedly! Sub-process http returned an error code (127) Method http has died unexpectedly! Sub-process http returned an error code (127)
The internet connection is working fine on this machine. I have another 10.04 machine sitting right next to the problem computer, and Update Manager works fine on that machine. I verified that all settings are the same between the 2 machines in these areas
1. All Update Manager SETTINGS (including SOFTWARE SOURCES)
2. System -> Preferences -> NETWORK PROXY (which is a Direct Internet Connection)
3. System -> Preferences -> NETWORK CONNECTION
It appears to me that the connection to Ubuntu repositories is failing but I can't find anything different between the 2 machines.
It started with Update Manager constantly recycling and not updating. When it starts it shows 295 files and 308MB waiting to download. When I click on 'Install Updates' it appears to go through the process, and then presents me with the same 'waiting to install' window again - and again, and again - in fact as many times as I care to click the 'Install Updates' button. No error messages appear. The 'Settings' button produces the same apparent process as the 'Install Updates' button, but doesn't present me with any other screen.
I've tried all the solutions I could find on these forums and nothing works. The sudo suggestions for Terminal usually produce error codes. adjusting a line in the 'hosts' file. When I tried this I was presented with the obstacle of not having access to the read-only file, and no matter how much I searched I couldn't find how to gain access . While investigating all these possible solutions, I was directed in turn to the Software Sources and Synaptic Package Manager applications, but when I attempted to start them, 'Starting Administrative Application' appeared briefly on the taskbar - and then disappeared!
My network manager application went missing a few days ago. I enabled it by right clicking on the taskbar above and opting for "show". It reappeared and worked fine. After I rebooted, however, it was there ok, but it doesn't respond to clicking at all. It has stopped working.
Whenever I try to install something with apt-get, I get a list of errors. Most of the time, the package I want to install gets installed anyway. However, this time samba stopped working, and I discovered that it was no longer on my system. I'm not sure how this happened - I haven't tried to remove it. So, I tried to reinstall it with 'apt-get install samba'. This time, the package did not install, and I got a long output from the terminal:
Right so yesterday my internet worked fine. Today - no connection at all. The light for my cable on the router doesn't even show up. I originally had indicator-network installed, so when the internet first stopped working, I tried a few other options such as tethering to my phone via usb and bluetooth (which I have successfully used in the past). However, these didn't work, and I figured that as connman is still in beta, maybe that was why. So I reinstalled network-manager and network-manager-gnome via a usb stick, uninstalled indicator-network, and rebooted the computer. Still no internet.
When I click on the applet, it says "No network devices are available". This is odd, as I definitely have a network device... it is part of the motherboard. So I thought I'd do the SMARTlan test or whatever it's called. It's part of my BIOS, so I ran that and it returned results that I (kinda) expected: when the cable wasn't plugged in, it returned one set of results. When it was only plugged into my computer (and not the router), it returned another set of results. And when it was plugged into both my computer and the router, it returned a third set of results. So that leads me to believe the cable itself is fine.
And when I move the cable to a different port on the router, nothing changes. The corresponding light still doesn't come on. Network-manager, telling there are no network devices. The BIOS can see the ethernet port and the cable. And the router is functioning perfectly for my parents' computer and my ps3. And I have checked the cable to my computer for physical damage - it follows the same path as the one to my ps3, and on top of that, nothing physical can possibly have happened to it in the last day. This happened once before, except I don't think the network devices were lost.
I'm running Kubuntu 9.10 (Karmic), and my System Monitor (a.k.a. Task Manager) has stopped working. I had been using the graphical version of the app because it was easier and faster for me to deal with. I know that there is a command line solution for this, but I also know it involves having to know the task number of the program I want to kill (I've got a game that I love to play, but only closes cleanly about 10% of the time). I've posted a couple of screen shots to show the errors... The first one is the error message itself (I have to hit 'OK' on this twice to clear it), and the second one is the resulting empty window of the System Monitor
I did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba Satellite, Intel graphics card, a few days ago, and had no trouble accessing the CompizConfig Settings Manager. I changed a number of settings, and everything seemed to be working just fine. But two days ago, I noticed that the compiz effects (rotating desktop cube, minimize effect etc.) were gone; and when I now try to access the Settings Manager, I see a "Starting CompizConfig..." appear in the panel and linger for about five seconds; then it's gone. No settings manager, no error message.
The day that happened, I had (to the best of my memory) not installed any updates. I had, however, removed a bunch of applications through the Software Center. I had also launched Ubuntu Tweak and changed a couple of settings. The only option it showed, and shows, under 'Compiz Settings' was then (and still is): "Prerequisite Conditions" : "Install Advanced Desktop Effects Settings Manager". The box was checked. I have since unchecked and re-checked it, thereby uninstalling and re-installing the settings manager. But that hasn't changed anything.
As the title says i updated my system which then needed a reboot. I also installed Mixxx djing software to try it out. So i thought id just restart the system. Usually when i boot into my desktop wireless automatically can connect to my router but not this time, wired only for now... i know theres tons of wireless issue threads but some more experienced users will be able to get straight to the point and run through some diagnostics with me.
Today i made an update using Webmin, and after that php stopped working, instead of running the files it launches a download. So i checked what was going on, and php module was disabled in apache config. When trying to enable it, it said the file "/usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp5.so" did not exist, and indeed it disapeared. I tried to reinstal php and apache (with and without --purge, through apt) and it didn't solved the problem.
Also i tried copying the file from another machine, also without success (this time it shows " Apache is running a threaded MPM, but your PHP Module is not compiled to be threadsafe. You need to recompile PHP.") Dont know what to do now, im kinda desperated here because this machine hosts my website =P
Basically what seems to have happened is after the recent Ubuntu update my Windows partition became unbootable (or maybe just removed from Grub). This wasn't a problem for a while though as I still had access to my files through Ubuntu.After a couple of weeks of using Ubuntu I needed to get into Windows, trying to (blindly) fix the problem I think what I did was open up Disk Manager in Ubuntu, clicked the Vista partition and marked it as bootable. Having done this some sort of error occured (can't remember what exactly) and after a reboot the partition is no longer accessible via Ubuntu.
I've read through a fair amount of similar posts and tried anumber of solutions but haven't had any luck so I thought someone here might be able to shed a bit more light on to my situation?Realistically, my main concern is getting data off the drive, if I can do that I can wipe the entire thing clean
I kind of feel like I'm out there hanging by myself when trying to understand Ubuntu. If there is a tutorial or guide for beginners, please feel free to post the link to it!I recently updated Ubuntu 11.04 on my dads computer and after the restart I noticed his keyboard no longer works. Well, it's has the light on like normally, but it's like the computer doesn't recognize it.
It worked fine with 8.04, although it wasn't as loud as it usually is with windows, but since I've updated its stopped working. When plugging the headphones in, a little sound comes through for a second when halfway plugged in, then nothing when fully plugged.
I've been running ubuntu on my Asus 1001ha netbook for half a year or so. I ran Karmic for at while, wifi working and all, accepted the recommended updates when Update Manager popped up and everything was fine until one day I let Update Manager do it's thing and my wifi stopped working.. Lycid had just come out that same week, so I thought "screw it" and installed 10.04 instead..
So I've been running 10.04 for a couple of months now, everything working fine, including the wifi - until today.. Update Manager suggested some upgrades, I accepted and *pouf* my wifi is gone again..
That's the second time Update Manager knocks out my wifi, any way to roll back todays update or how to the the wifi working again?
My mouse wheel stopped working after a package manager update.I'm still running 8.04 (yeah, yeah, I know, will be updating soon). I can't seem to find a "package manager update history" so I can see what got updated when I did that just today (changes can't be more than 24h old).I tried rebooting/cold boot just in case.I check xorg.cfg, but it hasn't changed since march of 2008, so I figure nothing overrode the config.
I have been running 10.04 in dual boot with Vista on a Toshiba Satellite A215 for the last 4 or 5 months. Last night I did a standard update and when I turned my computer on this morning I was given the standard prompt for Vista or Ubuntu. Every time I select Ubuntu the computer just restarts and gives me the same prompt.I have been looking over the forums, but most of the fixes seem to be done in Ubuntu, which I can't get into. I am fairly sure that it is an issue with GRUB. Does anybody know how to fix this problem from windows?
I hadn't updated until yesturday night, today after the massive update and reboot, my x stopped working. What happens is, after the splash screen, both screens goes black and unresponsive. Tried killing X and alt + ctrl + f1 etc. I can probably fix this myself if I could access the terminal but, the other day I had to be stylish and remove everything from my grub boot besides Windows 7 and the default Ubuntu so I can't boot into root terminal. So, how would I gain access to a console before X starts?
i did an update yesterday and after me-tv doesn't work any more, now when i run me-tv i get this error message,Duplicate object id 'hbox1' on line 1220 (previously on line 535)To c if the tunner was working i installed kaffeine and it works fine, so its something related to the me-tv, any ideas how to fix it
I'm using fedora 13, and it's been a while that yum auto-update doesn't pop up.Some time ago, when updates were available, a notification popped up asking for update (and I love this feature because I didn't have to check manually).Under System>Preferences>Software Update i've Daily check for updates and weekly check for major updates, with no automatic installs.And doing System>Administration>Software updates, it load and updates correctly, just it's no longer automatically checked.
