Ubuntu :: Netbook Launcher Fails To Launch After Update?

Jun 19, 2010

I have done a clean install of Lucid netbook remix on a Dell mini-12 laptop.

Finally managed to get the broadcom wireless driver packages and poulsbo drivers to install correctly and decided to install all the offered updates.

After reboot I get the menu bar at the top but then desktop flashes between white and my background image for ages but does not give me the normal netbook tabs etc.

If I try a restart I get a pop-up saying 'Netbook Launcher is not responding'.

Ubuntu :: Netbook Launcher Failed To Launch?

Jul 11, 2010

I've installed ubuntu netbook remix on my Asus Eee Pc. I've fixed the wireless and various issues on it. This morning when I rebooted my computer the netbook launcher failed to launch and there were no icons on the menu. When I clicked on the go home applet it appears inactive and the windows are not minimized. When I typed netbook-launcher in terminal it gave a single line output named segmentation fault. I dont want to reinstall ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Launch An Additional Application And Add It To The Launcher?

Dec 2, 2010

I run 10.10, netbook. Fine so far. I don't manage to call an application that I added manually, though. I have created a menu item, with all subdetails, a proper command, icon, everything. And I can see it in the menu editor, and it is there, even after a reboot. But: How to launch it?? It never shows up under applications, it doesn't show up in Searches, I can't type it in. It does work fine, though, when I open a terminal and add the proper command. It then also shows in the launcher list (left column). But it can't make it 'stick' there, the right-click option does not show in this case.

how to *start* an application that I have added to the menu? Why would a menu item never show as an available application?

Ubuntu :: Unity Launcher Doesn't Launch / What To Do?

Jun 19, 2011

I just upgraded to Natty this weekend, so don't have much experience with Unity yet. I tried to create a launcher, which starts an application on a VMware virtual machine using vmware-unity-helper (lot's of unity here .

Anyway, so I created the launcher, e.g. MS Project code...

The Exec command is just a little python script, which checks whether the VM is running and then executes the vmware-unity-helper command with the correct path and all.

The launcher works, when I double-click in in nautilus. But when I drag'n'drop to the unity bar and click it nothing happens. I pulses some (as if the application would start) but nothing happens.

Ubuntu :: Netbook Launcher Hangs On Startup ?

Apr 10, 2010

I'm a pro Windows user, but I'm kinda new to Linux/Ubuntu.

I've installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my notebook and I've having terrible hiccups. When I boot the notebook, it comes to the login screen and I login, and all is well so far.

After the login animation, it shows me my wallpaper, and the top panel, and the netbook-launcher is just launching when a portion of the screen turns white - like it's hanged. I press Ctrl+Alt+F1, Alt+F4 and Alt+F2 but with no luck. The only way out of this is a cold reboot(pressing the power button for 4 seconds). After a number of reboots, it logs in.

I don't know if this helps or if it has anything to do with the problem, but I added Pidgin to the startup applications a few days back.

Ubuntu :: Netbook Launcher Icons Cutoff - Internet Bookmarks

Mar 4, 2010

I installed Netbook Launcher on Ubuntu, it works almost perfect, but when the number of icons on some menu option is large enough (like on System) the scrollbar is not long enough and the last icons get cut off, so I can't completely see "Time and Date" for example... Is this a known bug?

is there a way to add Internet Bookmarks to the Launcher?

Ubuntu :: Convert From Unity To Old Netbook Launcher Or Standard Desktop?

Oct 2, 2010

A week or so ago I upgraded from UNE 10.04 to 10.10 and I can't stand the Unity interface, mostly because the full color icons on the left are really distracting.

How do I either

a) switch back to the old UNE interface (preferred)


b) change to the standard desktop?

Ubuntu :: Netbook Remix Menus - Unity Launcher On The Left Does Not Appear

Dec 4, 2010

I have been running the 10.10 Netbook version for about 3 weeks, as as a dual boot with Windows XP on an MSI Wind netbook primarily with an external monitor (and the netbook monitor off). Because I am using an external monitor, I'd like to get more of a full desktop experience. However, when I read on the forum how to get Gnome desktop workin, or even the desktop-switcher utility, I think there is something wrong with my installation.

I have the unity launcher on the left, which does not appear to have any easy way to add items. I have the bar across the top, which has the logout/logoff/shutdown button, clock and a few icons (bluetooth, network, etc.) on the right. On the far left, I have an icon that brings up the "Microsoft Bob"-like menu (Web, Music, Photos, Games, etc.). I don't have any menu (System, Applications, etc.). When I logout, I have no option to log in using gnome desktop.

Why don't I have many of these options, that other users describe? What is the best way for me to get the full gnome desktop? When I go into synaptic and search for gnome desktop, dozens of items come up, including many that are marked as installed.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Fails To Launch?

Feb 27, 2010

I installed it yesterday. It worked well. I was able to log into windows without any trouble and restart into Ubuntu without a hitch.

This morning I launched Ubuntu as usual vi GRUB. I was asked to install about 135 upgrade files, which went withou an apparent challenges. I then went through the restart and noticed that there was an extra two choices in GRUB, but I just left it to launch Ubuntu automatically. Which it did.

I then messed about with the appearance settings. Noticed a some more updates were waiting which included 49 files. I went through the updating process and restart.
GRUB worked well, and I was soon loggin in with username and password.

The Ubuntu Screen became visible with the flashing horizontal line and about 3 seconds later everything froze. I waited for several minutes - I timed them - but still no progress - everything remained frozen.

I switched off the machine completely, as I knew of no other way to get out of this situation. I rebooted and when GrUB launched I booted into windows 7 with absolutely no problems.

I used restart in windows and then allowed GRUB to boot into Ubuntu. Once more I was able to log in but soon after the Ubuntu Screen appeared and the horizontal line flashed for a few seconds, everything froze. This time I waited five minutes before switching off the machine by disconnecting at the mains.

I am now using windwos 7 to make contact

Ubuntu :: (11.04) Radeon 5700 Series : Catalyst Fails To Launch?

Apr 30, 2011

I really don't know what's going on here. I had Ubuntu 10.10 working great, and noticed 11.04 came out. I had been waiting a while and, for some reason, I decided to start with a fresh install rather than an upgrade.So basically here's what I've done so far:

- Installed Ubuntu 11.04 amd64
- Installed Opera, and XSensors
(sensors-detect only detected my GPU and CPU, not mainboard this time. But I can live with that.)
- Activated the FGLRX driver, rebooted.
- Tried to launch Catalyst Control Center, received this error message:
[Initialization error]

There was a problem initializing CCC Linux edition. It could be caused by the following.No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning properly. Please install the ATI driver apropriate for you ATI hardware, or configure using aticonfig.

Ubuntu :: Guest Session At Login Screen - Fails To Launch GDM

Aug 2, 2011

Basically, the problem is, we have a bunch of computers in a computer lab, that we want to students to access, but not modify in ANY way. That includes backgrounds or whatnot. And after restart, any changes they may have made, change back. Also, they can't have read access to the administrator account on the computer.

This needs to give a permission denied, or something:
cd /home/(admin account username)

The Guest Session is exactly what we are looking for, but try as I might, I can't get it to work. Because, we don't want to have to login as administrators, then activate guest session, just for our students to use the computers. The idea being, we can leave the computers in there, and not worry about the students breaking anything.

One thread I tried was: [URL]. However, using his method, will log the student into the account, and after about 5 seconds, log them back out.
The other method listed lower in the thread,
Seems to work, but upon logging out, fails to launch the gdm

Only way to restore is restarting the computer.

OpenSUSE Install :: BIOS Message - Fails To Launch From CD

May 16, 2011

Recently, for whatever reason (I am led to suspect a bad hard drive), Windows 7 failed to boot even in safe mode so I decided to just use a clear hard drive and install a far less troublesome OS, so I decided to try to use openSUSE. I used a backup laptop to download and burn the 4.7 GB release. Problem is, I haven't a clue how to get it to work. I thought just placing the burned DVD in when booting would be enough, but the BIOS keeps telling me it fails to launch from CD. Luckily, I had enough foresight to download a live CD just in case. I was able to install from the live CD, and when I checked the DVD, I was able to access all the content.

But I haven't a clue how to use it to upgrade/install all the extra software. Also, I should add I am completely new to this whole thing. While I have used Linux before, for the most part others dealt with all the administrative aspects of ensuring the system actually ran/had the needed software on it. Finally, I have one major restriction placed on this whole issue. I live out in the middle of no-where and the only internet I can get is limited to 200MB a day (I downloaded the CD/DVD elsewhere, but normally don't have a chance to do that). As such, being able to install from the DVD and not needing to download much software would be nice.

Slackware :: Default Xfce Terminal Launch Fails With Error

Feb 24, 2011

Fresh guest install of current as of changelog dated 16-Feb-2011, in to VirtualBox 4.0.4 (13.1 x86_64 host).

1. About 6 of the icons normally residing in the top half of Settings Manager are missing (names are their and functions work). Selecting 'Appearance -> Icons' and re-selecting the one choice available restores one, the rest remain MIA.

2. Default xfce Terminal launch fails with error <????> Re-selecting the default 'Preferred Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal -> Xfce Terminal' has no effect. 'Properties' shows the usual 'exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator'.

Setting 'Preferred Applications' to 'X Terminal' launches an xterm successfully as expected.

Ubuntu :: Domain Login Fails On 10.10 Netbook Edition?

Dec 11, 2010

I did a fresh install of the netbook version of 10.10 on a Gateway CX2618. I ran all updates and then rebooted. I installed LWO 5.4 from the repository and joined the domain. I put in a kerberos realm (same as my domain) but I don't know for sure if I have a kerberos realm. I successfully joined the domain with the GUI. I rebooted, per instructions.

I tried to login with domain username and password (DOMAINusername). It takes a couple seconds to think and then kicks me right back to the GDM login screen. I have tried several times with the same login and have tried other domain users. It doesn't say "authentication failure" but I should have tried to use the wrong password to see if it would do the same.

I'm stumped. Is there a ppa I need to add? Is Likewise-Open supposed to work with the maverick netbook edition. I saw the previous notice on the Likewise site about OpenLDAP but I thought that was resolved in the updates and no longer in effect. Should I install LWO 6.0? If so, from where? From a ppa somewhere? From the Likewise site?

I can still login with a local admin account.

My ultimate goal is to automatically mount network windows shares for various students, based on their login credentials and using CIFS. I almost had this figured out before this fresh install.

I have looked elsewhere for an answer and some others have had similar problems, but I have not found a reason for it happening, nor an answer. I wonder if anyone can help me please. I have been using Ubuntu for several months, can use the Terminal if I have the right commands to issue, but beyond that have limited knowledge of the system.
