Ubuntu :: No Sound In KDE When Started By Startx While Working Fine When Started By Kdm/gdm

Dec 14, 2010

I recently installed KDE in my ubuntu 10.10. To access KDE, I want to use
startx /usr/bin/startkdeBut using it disables sound in KDE (Sound is working fine in GNOME). It doesn't sound for anything like login sound, totem, mplayer or any other playerBut when I press Alt+Ctrl+F1 to change to virtual console, the playback resumes from where it was in time and when coming back Alt+Ctrl+F7 and the time in totem (or any other player) doesn't move. While log out also it doesn't play logout sound and doesn't logout, so I have to press Ctrl+Alt+F1 so that logout sound play then it exits.When starting KDE by kdm or gdm, the sound works normally. But I don't want to login again using kdm or gdm and not to use root user to start kdm or gdm.I don't know what is the difference between when KDE is started by startx or by kdm/gdm where the same user login in kdm/gdm as that for startx

Ubuntu :: Games Started But Getting No Sound At All

Feb 24, 2010

I switched to Linux but I was, and still am a gamer, and I have been trying to get some of my favorites to run on Linux as well as find Linux native games. While this hasn't been hard, I have run into a sort of Brick wall. I'll get games to start, but there will be no sound at all. The game runs fine though. When I try to close the game, it crashes/freezes.

This has puzzled me because some games that display this bug now did not previously, and at first this only occurred on one game. Now it occurs on all games. I've checked around, found a few similar bugs, but the closest people seem to get to fixing it is "just uninstall pulseaudio and use something else". It only happens in games, music and other sound works fine.

As for specs, I must say I'm fairly ignorant of some things, but getting better, here is what I do know.
Mint 8
Nvidia graphics card (can't recall what model)
Gnome Desktop

General :: Get The External Screen Working (only After GDM Is Started?

Apr 14, 2011

I have a laptop with SuSE 11.2 installed, worked all like a charm.Then the problems started :I lost my display (it is dark, you can see very very faint the desktop from time to time)Clearly a hardware problem.So, I attached an external screen. Only this shows nothing, cannot get it activated.Since the laptop automatically boots into our LAN, i just started it, and connected via SSH from an other computer.No problem i have a shell.Then I thought to be clever, and activated the pure-ftp demon, so I can download all interesting files to a new computer. I activated it with / as shared directory.After that, I could not boot the laptop anymore, it did not connect to the network.

After a lot of try-outs I finally managed to get the external screen working (only after GDM is started, i can see the workspace, nothing at boot time).Then I found out that the network would not start anymore, actually I could not even start yast or a su shell.After some investigation, I found that pure-ftp had changed the owner of all files in the / partition to ftp (and the group also to ftp)So, su has no access rights anymore to /etc/shadow, and thus cannot verify my root password anymore.Now i'm stuck. I can work as normal user on the old machine, but no network, the DVD wont write anymore and usb sticks don't open anymore.I cannot boot the system in single usermode, since then I have no screen.Has anybody here the brilliant idea I need to get the files out of this machine, without taking the disc out(would not know how to do that anyway).

Server :: Postfix / Sasl Authentication Not Working When Started As A Service

Mar 15, 2011

I am re setting up a server of mine running red hat enterprise Linux server 6 and I had all of this working befor but for some reason I had troubles getting sasl to work and now when I login my smtp server I get an error stating that my username or password is incorrect though I am sure I am entering both correctly. Would anyone know what could be happening? I have been spending days on the web looking for the solution and only went from sasl not working when started as a service to this. For some reason I can't use Pam with saslauthd and had to use shadow instead of which from what I hear I get to use better methods of secure authentication with smtp

Ubuntu :: Cannot Get Started With Conky

Nov 24, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu and I came across Conky.I was fascinated with this software and installed it using terminal codes. At first it rand with the default config file loaded. then i PC shutdown due to a power failure. now conky does not start and after searching over the net i found out that my conky config file is missing. I pasted the conky config fiel yet to no avail.

It gives me this error while running it in Terminal

Conky: /home/shazzy/.conkyrc: 30: no such configuration: 'on_bottom'
Conky: /home/shazzy/.conkyrc: 63: no such configuration: 'border_margin'
Conky: use_spacer should have an argument of left, right, or none. 'no' seems to be some form of 'false', so defaulting to none.


Here's the link to the site. I'm not sure how do i set this up as my conky config.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Can't Get Started On Macbook Air?

I've got a Macbook Air and a verified 9.10 liveCD in the external superdrive. I can successfully boot to the CD, but when I choose "try ubuntu without installing", all I get is a blinking cursor in the upper-left of the screen forever. Any idea why it won't start? CD works fine on my Dell, that's why I say it's verified.

Ubuntu :: Some Processes Not Started On Reboot

Jul 18, 2010

I've a laptop running 10.04 LTS 64 bit. (Upgraded from 9.04 64bit). Some times (1 over 3) certain processes are not started at boot time : bluetooth, vboxdrv, hddtemp, cups.... (I may miss some other ones). If I use sudo and the service command I can start them by hand and if I reboot they usually start automatically. I've tried to start the laptop without the "quiet splash" options to the kernel command line but I did not see any error messages nor anything more explaining this behavior. So I wonder where I can find where the glitch is, how I can fix it, and what is the startup sequence of an Ubuntu machine (there is no /etc/inittab, and the /etc/rcN behavior does not seem to be standard)

Ubuntu :: Resume Screen From Ssh That Was Started Without Ssh?

Jul 18, 2010

Like the subject says, I was at my server and logged in directly and started screen. I then started a command and detached the screen.I then logged in remotely through ssh thinking I could resume the screen but when I try "screen -r", it says not screens to resume. I see the screen process still running and when I do go back to the server directly (no ssh) I can resume the screen and things are running just fine.Anyone know how to resume a screen remotely that wasn't started remotely?

Ubuntu :: Server Or Desktop Getting Started?

Sep 19, 2010

Is the Server or Desktop version of Ubuntu a better choice for a home file (and possibly a media) server?

To explain a little, I currently have a WinXP Pro pc that provides file storage for the users in our home (spouse, kids, self). On this pc I have a windows program ACRONIS running to perform automatic backup of every ones stuff. This has saved me many hours of headaches when someone has a HDD or PC failure. Everyone in the household directs all of their downloading activities to a download partition where I have an anti-virus & anti-malware program monitoring all new entries. This too seems to have been a good decision over the years. I'm trying to sort out which version of Ubuntu will be the most logical entry point.

I expect the questions I am seeking insight for are the normal getting started stuff. Using several different search criteria, I did not hit upon existing threads for the topic If there is a more appropriate forum / sub-forum, please let me know and I will take this question (thread) there.

Ubuntu :: Getting Started With Dual Boot

May 11, 2011

I have never touched Linux. Always been intrigued, but never toyed around with it until now. So please bear with me. I normally run Windows 7 Pro but would like to dual boot Ubuntu. I have installed Ubuntu 11.4 with Wubi 4-5 times, and it starts out fine, and then stops working on me. I tried recreating it to see what was causing the problem, but with no avail. The problem it has is as soon as I pick Ubuntu from the GRUB it boots to some sort of bootup (non GUI) and gets to a point where it says something about a system audit, and never loads from there. The only way to fix it is to uninstall Ubuntu (through Add/Remove Programs) and reinstall.

I am not in a place where I can partition drives or anything like that. I do not care so much about using Wubi, but either that, or help booting from a USB would work fine for my needs.

General :: How Does MySQL Usually Get Started

Jul 5, 2011

I'm trying to ensure an app starts on boot up but after MySQL has been started. I can't however locate where MySQL is being started. If I do a chkconfig, it says MySQL is off, yet I can readily access my databases with phpmyadmin.If I look at my boot log, I can see it says MySQL Server is started, right after Apache2 is started.In my rc5.d directory, I only see a symbolic link for Apache2 but nothing for MySQL. The startup script for MySQL appears in /etc/init.d.rc.local has got nothing in it but comments. So it appears to me like it's being run on startup, but not as a service. But I have next to no knowledge of Linux so don't put too much belief in that.I would have originally installed MySQL via apt-get.

General :: Fan Keeps Running Once Started?

Feb 28, 2011

My problem is that my fan will keep running quite quickly once started. It will keep running till reboot independently of CPU usage and temperature. To check the temperature I installed lm-sensors. Output of temperature related commands and kernel version are below. Shouldnt they all give the temperature? My machine is a Toshiba Satellite pro L300. Eg. at the moment my fan is running quite quickly although CPU usage is 3-4% and the temperature according to lm-sensors is approximately 40-45 degrees Celcius.

:~$ acpi --thermal
Battery 0: Full, 100%
Thermal 0: ok, 0.0 degrees C
:~$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature

Ubuntu Installation :: After Few Updates - Started Crashing

Jan 19, 2010

First said is the fact that I used Ubuntu 8.04 for over a year, alone on my PC, and there were no problems.
Few days ago I formated my PC, installed Win xp and immediately after I installed Ubuntu 8.04 from CD side by side with Win xp.

For few days everything worked more or less fine, but after few updates Ubuntu started crashing. The only way that I can work with Ubuntu is by choosing in the login menu something that is called Failsafe Gnome startup. If I choose this option everything works fine. I must add that I made no changes to my hardware except the fact that now I have Win xp installed with my Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: All Windows Minimise When Started - UNR Unusable

May 2, 2010

I've been using UNR since the 9.04 release on my Eee 1000HE and have been generally happy with it as a solution since then. Tonight I've upgraded to 10.04 using the package manager and everything starts correctly but when I start any application it minimises itself straight away making the system unusable. If I click on the application to bring it to focus, I get about 1/2 a second of typing before it minimises itself again. Using that method I've been able to get around the problem with a sudo apt-get remove netbook-launcher - but I like the netbook launcher and I'd like to keep using it.

Ubuntu :: Evolution Started Hanging On MH Folder

Jun 20, 2010

I came home, having left Evolution running all day, to find it frozen and unresponsive. I killed it, opened it back up... and same thing. It opens, checks through my folders (I have one imap account, and one MH folder that Evolution dumps my pop mail into.) and freezes.

In the status bar, when it freezes, this is what it's doing:

Opening folder mh:///home/katia/mail;command=ssh%20-C%20-l%20%25u%20%25h%20exec%20/usr/sbin/imapd#inbox(...)

And then it just hangs.

If I disable my MH folder real quick, it doesn't hang and I can use my imap account fine. Re-enabling my MH folder quickly causes the hang again.

I tried opening the MH folder in clawsmail, but it hung also. Mutt was able to open it fine.

Ubuntu :: Broken GUI In Application When Started From The Menu?

Nov 14, 2010

I have problem regarding when a application is started from the menu-line. If I for example start wxmaxima though Menu -> Science -> Wxmaxima, then the menu-bar is gone. I can access the menu-bar by pressing F10, but the menubar never shows up!

I have the same experience with emacs 23, where the menu-bar starts as it should, but whenever I change major (or minor) mode, the new menu-item appears, but I cannot access the menu-item (it is just blank). As before, whenever I go though F10 the menuitem shows up as it should.

Same goes for eclipse.

Instead of starting the applications though the Menu -> ..., I tried to start them in the terminal instead. Then the applications do not suffer from this menubar behaviour.

Ubuntu :: OS Started Asking For 'password For Root' Rather Than Sudo

May 29, 2011

when I try to do admin tasks - e.g. setting my wireless connection to "available to all users" or updating a group's settings - it asks for "password for root" rather than asking for my password so it can sudo.I was forced to enable the root password, so I could do anything on my system ( sudo su; passwd; ) but I'd rather keep my root password locked and use sudo if possible.
