I recently upgraded from Maverick Meerkat to (classic) Natty Narwhal Ubuntu Linux. I am running on a Toshiba Satellite A665 (Intel i7). I use a wireless internet connection. Under Maverick, I had no issues. Under the update, I am finding that occasionally things stop working: The indicator Applet looks fine, but from a terminal, I find that I am no longer able to ping my own router (less than 10 feet away.) This behavior occurs after working fine for a few hours. I am unsure if anything in particular triggers it (I will report back if I determine a particular cause). I have a few other computers (2 running Windows, and the other Maverick Meerkat) -- and they are unaffected. Turning wireless off and on resolves the issue for me on Natty. Rebooting also works. Here's some hopefully relevant technical details about my system:
~$ rfkill list all
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
I started playing with Natty Narwhal (11.04) last week. I have a Toshiba Portege R700 laptop with 4GB of memory. Firstly, let me say that when I run 11.04 on the bare metal laptop (installed via WUBI) it appears to work flawlessly. That is, both the ethernet (hard wired) network and the wifi network work just fine.The networking problem occurs when I try to run 11.04 as a (Type 2) VM in VMWare workstation with an underlying o/s of Windows 7 Enterprise.
In this mode, the ethernet network works fine but the wireless network does not work. The o/s does not even see the wireless card. I have downloaded and installed about 216 MB of updates from the update center to no avail. I have "bridged" the VMWare "virtual switch" across to both the ethernet port and the wireless port (see below):Basically, it appears that the interface is not being presented to the VM.Also, of interest, Unity which works fine on the bare metal install does not run on the Ubuntu 11.04 VM.
How do I enable wireless in Natty Narwhal? When I type in "lshw" it tells me: *-network=DISABLEDHow do I enable wireless? I'm going crazy trying to figure it out!Also, My Ubuntu has absolutely no Internet. Not even an Ethernet connection. I'm using my Windows for my Internet right now.
I have a Broadcom BCM4318 that isn't working with the B43 or the other (I tried installing both and while they supposedly installed successfully, neither shows up in the Additional Drivers tab for me to enable.) I tried using both sets of directions stickied up at the top of this forum. Neither seems to be working for me (no guarantees on whether I did it right) though the B43 is apparently the one I need.Disclaimer: I'm a total newbie to using command line and a new convert from Windows so I'm rusty at navigating and making things work, though things are finally starting to make a little sense after two days of hacking at it.
In trying to upgrade from the default VNC server, I have installed RealVNC on latest Ubuntu Natty Narwhal, and it seems to work fine. But I would like to make it so RealVNC starts in the background when ubuntu is booting. I found the website below, but those procedures seem a little dated, so I thought I would check here first. Does anyone know of a good way to load the vnc.so module on boot? I have nvidia drivers and such installed, so I am afraid adding the load module section in xorg.conf might make it somodules that I don't know about don't load
I've just upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04 and sorted out the mess that came along, now there's just one thing left and I'm all set. I have always used Emulate3Buttons and had it working on 10.10 earlier as well but now I can't seem to get it going.
I've edited my xorg.conf like this: Code: Section "InputDevice" # generated from default Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0" Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" EndSection Nothing happens if I write "yes" or "no" (or true/false).
i heard about that Ubuntu now finally releasing it's new version of Ubuntu distribution. It will launch on 28 april.. how to use this version on ubuntu 10.10 is there any possible strategy to switch on Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal
I've been running Ubuntu on my laptop for a while, and I recently upgraded from 10.04 in Ubuntu using System -> Admin -> Update manager. However, when I now run System -> About Ubuntu, I'm told I'm running Natty Narwhal 11.04, rather than Ubuntu 10.10 which I was aiming for. I never noticed this earlier, though... I guess it's a month or two since I upgraded.Did something go wrong in the update and cause this to happen by mistake?I there a way for me to downgrade to 10.10?
I thought before breaking my working PC, i thought id better ask the question.Is it possible to download a GDM log in theme and get it running on Natty? I've googled loads of possibilities, but got a feeling that as Natty is GDM2 it can't be done.I've downloaded Tweak and been able to change the log in wallpaper and the icon, but i want one of those fancy log in screens that ive seen on Gnome eyecandy.
I have Ubuntu 11.04 Natty and when I started it the first time it wasn't connected to the Internet. I refreshed and did the basic stuff. But it wasn't so simple. I went to Network Tools and Natty didn't recognize my router. I am not connected through Ethernet either. I can't do/can't afford to do an ethernet hookup. I don't want to spend my time running a cable to the floor below my CPU. Anyway, I have a Broadcom 4306 Network Controller. I am currently using my Windows to post. Also, I can't get drivers from Synaptic or anything (that includes NDISwrapper). Can I use Windows drivers without downloading NDISwrapper? I'm so confused and starting to think this is hopeless. Even worse: I don't have a disk for installing Ubuntu, I downloaded online alongside Windows with Wubi, Again, my network controller is a Broadcom 4306.
I would just like to inquire how some members have versions of ubuntu 11.04.I am actually posting from England,but as far as I was aware this version is not available until april of 2011.Is the source code maybe available through certain channels.Or do you guys get distros a few months before us here.Because according to my vers 10.10,I have the latest upgrade.
A couple months ago, I created a dual boot between Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 using wubi. I then upgraded to 10.10. What would usually happen is I would start up my laptop and it'll go to the Windows boot manager, letting me choose between Windows 7 and Ubuntu. If I would choose Ubuntu, it would go to a GRUB boot manager. It would let me choose between several different ways to boot Ubuntu, mainly that there were different options that were all the same except they had different numbers in the name, i.e. Ubuntu, whatever, 220.127.116.11.25 or something like that.
A couple weeks ago, I updated to 11.04. At first it worked good, but then a couple days later I updated a bunch of packages. It tried to CAT a GRUB file and failed. It gave me an error code, but I ignored it. Yesterday, I updated again, but since last time failed, it told me to do a partial upgrade. This I did, and it was successful. But now, everytime I go to GRUB and try to select any of the options, it tells me "Error: File not Found" and I cannot boot into Ubuntu. There are recovery versions for each choice, and using these I can boot into Ubuntu in low graphics mode and I can also get to a command line prompt.
I installed Natty Narwhal yesterday and everything was fine.Today, however, I installed some updates.I tried restarting my computer but it never gets to the desktop.It keeps crashing and looping back, if that makes sense.I can't start in fail-safe graphics mode either.
I just upgraded to Natty Narwhal. When I first logged in a pop-up dialogue appeared saying that my computer did not fulfil the hardware requirements to run Unity. That cannot be possible this is the output of the lscpu command:
Code: Architecture: i686 CPU op-mode(s): 32-bit CPU(s): 2 Thread(s) per core: 2 Core(s) per socket: 1 CPU socket(s): 1 Vendor ID: GenuineIntel CPU family: 15 Model: 3 Stepping: 4 CPU MHz: 2999.900 L1d cache: 16K L2 cache: 1024K

Summarized that is: Pentium 4 3GHz core running two threads 1.2GB of ram

I have installed ubuntu 11.04 on my HCL Me Laptop. The OS is not getting halted when I use the shut down or the restart menu from the GUI. It is not shutting down when used the commands 'sudo shut down now' or 'sudo poweroff now' or 'sudo halt now' or 'sudo init 0' also. Except when used the 'shut down' command, the command line hangs at:
init: plymouth-upstart-bridge main process (1981) terminated with status 1 checking for running unattended upgrades.
When used the 'shut down' command, the violet screen where the word ' ubuntu ' is written appears and hangs. I have updated my OS yesterday, but it is not fixing the problem. All the time I am using power button to have a forced shutdown. I loved the natty nerwhal.
I am having some trouble using the compiz config settings on the new "Natty Narwhal" 11.04. On 10.4, it worked seamlessly; the 3D desktop cube worked, 3D windows worked, and rotating desktop cube also worked. On Natty Narwhal, nothing works-- at all. It may seem kind of childish for me to download compiz config just for the cube, but the fact that compiz config alone isn't even working is kind of making me nervous. Though, it would be great if someone could help me with the cube.
I think from upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal. Whenever programs ask me to send reports (bug reports) they fail to redirect me to the proper launch pad bug report page. It just loads up my home page and acts like it's finished. Even if I have Firefox previously open, nothing happens.
Liferea was doing the same thing until I changed it from using the Gnome Default to Firefox. Perhaps this is a gnome default failure or something?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat and I'd like to know when does the update manager upgrade the system to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal. I do not want it to do the upgrade too early,as this might cause problems.I heard they're going to release Natty by the end of April,when it passes the beta stage but it will take 3-4 months for the bugs to be fixed. Also,please answer my other thread,it has new posts: [URL]
I was going to install the Beta for Ubuntu 11.04 using the command update-manager -d. Everything went fine accept the fact that I had maybe two other programs running the same time as the update wich made my computer performance get really high wich ended in overheating and that my computer (using a laptop, of course) shut off. When I started my laptop again it will not go any further than the Ubuntu start screen saying something like "The device / cannot be found or is not ready yet". Can I all my files although I haven't done any backup?
i have lenovo g450 and has installed windows 7 ultimate for a long time ago. i want to try ubuntu natty in my lenovo with dual boot system. after loading natty disk and click on install ubuntu it said that this computer currently has no detected operating system and i have to choose erase disk and install ubuntu or something else. i have created drive c with 50 gb for dual boot.
my logitech quickcam zoom works out of the box for taking local pics and local videoshots. It's seen by Cheese, camorama, However, it doesn't work on aMSN, nor on any video-enabled website. lsusb tells me: Bus 004 Device 003: ID 046d:08b4 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Zoom
Is there someone around who has got their logitech quickcam zoom to work and is willing to share his/her knowledge?
My recently installed OS, keeps on displaying a GRUB menu instead of the normal screen and has an option of normal start up or ( I forgot what it's called but some sort of .. ) Fixing Option. It has worked before but yesterday the error wouldn't stop coming up after it randomly crashed while the computer was working. I haven't tried it again today, but will do soon. The first option of normal boot up said something like 0x01002 is in use and didn't load.
The second one occasionly came up with an option for normal boot after it had 'Fixed' it. But most times it would come up with some terminal like dialogue, then stop and not load, don't know if it crashed or what ? Hope this is enough information for you, but as I'm only 12, I don't have a clue what to do, except the obvious option of rebooting again and again.
I'm having problems setting the primary display in my Linux environment. I tried following the instructions here which seems to be working for everyone but it didn't work for me. In my /etc/gnome-settings-daemon/xrandr folder, I edited the monitors.xml file as well. It looks like this:
