Ubuntu One :: Current Downloads Still Freezing One Of Computers In Account
Jun 9, 2010
When I use the command 'u1sdtool --current-transfers' in a terminal I have three files that are partially downloaded and now apparently frozen. They have been like this for several days and seem to be stopping the metadata list from processing on this particular computer.The files concerned have now been deleted from their original computer but are still freezing one of the computers in the account. Is there a way of refreshing the download process or clearing this in some way?
I used to have Windows XP on my desktop computer which was changed to Linux 9.10 awhile back and just recently I downloaded Linux 10.04. I am having problems with my screen while viewing websites and games I play freezing up. I have also noticed that it is very slow at times downloading sites I wish to view. The sound on videos and games comes and goes. I thought by upgrading to Linux 10.04 would fix the problems, but it has not.
I can see the owner and group ids are shown because there are no corresponding entries in /etc/passwd and /etc/group respectively. I don't know much about linux and dare not to edit these files, I wonder if somebody already knows whether linux would map the owner id of files coming from other computers to the account name in /etc/passwd and display them when necessary (for example, when using ls -al)?

I have like 4 email addresses on one Ubuntu One account and I'd like to remove them all except my current email... I also have an old account I'd like to delete. I used the contact form but to no avail.
I have a problem with the Google search box top right corner in Konqueror, when entering search I recieve an error page "Unsupported Protocol" Google asks for ioslave or kioslave. Also when highlighting text on a page and right clicking with the mouse no search option is given. I created a new user and all works as it should for the new user. What is wrong with my user account? I have reset default values in Konqueror setup.
Well Ubuntu 10.10 desktop edition looks great and I am way over the plain old xp, plus Ubuntu is safer and sexier. I have downloaded 10.10 desktop and it saves as a .iso, then when I open it it runs my cd burner. I have it saved on a CD and my portable hard drive. I can not run the .iso or use the wubi. I have extracted the .iso and tried running the usb creator program but it does not work. Does anyone have a solution other than buying the ubuntu cd?
I have ubuntu 10.10 and thunderbird 3.1.9. thunderbird will not download messages from any pop server, it just states no messages to download. I log into the web version of either pop server and there are hundreds of messages. I have so far deleted both po account settings and put them back, tried both ssl and not ssl, unchecked leave messages on server, removed and reinstalled thunderbird.
I've been using Ubuntu 9.04 for a few months now after switching over from XP. I've figured most issues I've had via Google I guess about a week ago, everything I download whether it be from Firefox Or Transmissions won't show up on the desktop screen. When I few the folder in Nautilus, same thing. I can see the files with the 'dir' terminal command. I did try using 'sudo' to lauch Nautilus and was able to see my files. If I drag them out of the Nautilus window and on to my desktop, they appear. Keep in mind, I know the files are in MY directory and are owned by me. Any clue to what is causing this and how to fix it?
I have a laptop with a wireless that needs a driver from what I've read;
Code: apt-get install b43-fwcutter I should be able to plug it in (ethernet) & get it to work but it occurred to me that what if the ethernet didn't work either. So my question is how could I get the files that command would download to my desktop onto a disk so i could manually install it onto the laptop?
If I download a .deb file then when I run dpkg all files install in the correct directories.But with a tar.bz2 file when I run tar xvjf it installs in its current directory. How can I make a tar.bz2 file install into the appropriate directory?
I am running a dual boot with Ubuntu 10.04 and vista. Anyway both systems are very healthy as far as I can see. I have a very fast internet connection at 50Mbs. Under vista I can pull around 4 - 5MBs where under Ubuntu I can only get about 350KBs. I have a single PC hard wired into a Netgear WNR3500 router/firewall. Anyway, I was wondering if there is anything I can do with my packet sizes or receive windows to help it along? I am only using a very small part of my available bandwidth obviously. Is there a kind soul here who could tell me how to optimize my internet connection in Lucid?
I've been trying to download some software stuff off of the Ubuntu Software Center, but every time I try it tells me "Waiting for other software managers to quit", and just sits there at 0%. I've been waiting for 45 minutes for it to start the download of Pidgin.I looked in the Processes of System Monitor, and I dunno what other Software manager would be running. The only processes that are running are System Monitor... and then the process"software-center" under the Waiting Channel tab goes from 0 to "do_wait" to "poll_schedule_timeout", and its status goes from Running to Sleeping.
Last night I was using Ubuntu just downloading music with Limewire and it was all working fine until I clicked on a a song to download and a message popped up saying something like "This computer doesn't have a file for Limewire downloads", I am not exactly sure on how it said it but it had something to do with the File System. Since it was so late I just decided to leave it like that and deal with it in the morning.
I woke up and when I started Ubuntu and it says "File System not found", and something about pressing Control-D. Sorry for the lack of info I just don't remember exactly what it said, but like I mentioned above it has something to do with the File System that apparently isnt working. I decided to re-install Ubuntu and it worked great, I am using ubuntu right now but it doesn't have any of the setting and apps etc etc that I had on the other one.
When I restart the computer and the dual-boot menu comes up it has 2 types of ubuntu, this one that works and the other one that everytime I click on it it keeps showing me the "File System not found". Is there any way to fix my old version of Ubuntu 9.10? And if I cant then how can I delete the damaged version of Ubuntu so it doesn't come up in the Dual-Boot screen? And I also have Windows 7 on it, how can I delete that one also?
Runing Lucid Lynx,10-4 This is the 3rd time this summer I have tried to view/download a movie and I am required to download 'limewire.exe' or 'FLVPro.exe'. Is there something I can reconfigure that will trick the website into thinking everything is cool and let me watch the movie?
I just installed Apache2 and PHP on my computer but everytime I go to my localhost folder (ex: http://localhost/test/), firefox starts to download the index.php instead of running it. This doesn't happen in Chrome.
I just downloaded my first track and I was pleased! It was easy to find, pay, and download. It was 20 cents cheaper than AmazonMP3 too.
I had the same song downloaded from AmazonMP3 and compared them side-by-side. The 7digital file had a better bitrate (320KB/sec) than AmazonMP3 (225KB/sec) and I didn't notice any quality in the sound.
I noticed, however, the AmazonMP3 track was stereo and the 7digital one was mono.
I swear Ubuntu's download pages are getting harder and harder to find things in.I help with a local LUG that holds a Clinic for Linux newbies. One of my tasks is to maintain all the latest popular distros and all the versions thereof. usually recommend Ubuntu to newcomers, but people bring all kinds of computers, many of which need Lubuntu or Xubuntu, yet others want Kubuntu, and on and on. I need all the flavors of Ubuntu.I prefer to download by torrent because it is faster with my connection. I found a page with torrents for 10.04 and 10.10 for Ubuntu desktop, alternate and server, but I'll be darned if I can find torrents for Netbook, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu and others.
I have a fresh install of ubuntu 10.04 lucid .... When I went to download some files via firefox, I noticed that the downloads would stop before the download is complete. I tried to download a small 8MB file and it reached almost 4MB then the download simply stopped and firefox incorrectly informed me that the download was finished.. I tried several more downloads after that of various other files and the same thing happens. I have never had trouble downloading files before. I upgraded to firefox 3.6.13 before I noticed this problem so I do not know if it was doing it before I upgraded as this is a fresh ubuntu install.
I am using ubuntu 8.04.When I install software from internet then files are downloaded to /var/cache/apt/archives so i keep those debian files in safe place so that I can install that software on another stand-alone computer.
MY question: When we run 'apt-get update' for first time after fresh install it downloads some files. Can i store those files & point to them for a networkless computer which has no internet ? If this is possible it will allow me to 'apt-get check' on stand-alone computer to see if any package is not proper.
I have been unable to open my Downloads folder for 2 days now. I've tried everything. I can get into every other folder on my machine though. I also have 103GB free space on my machine. Is there perhaps a limit on the amount of data I can have per folder? I'm running 64bit Ubuntu.
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx Dual Boot with Windwos Vista Level - beginner (started today 07/0810)
I have just given Linux a try for the first time and so far its not proving to be a good experience. I have so far just tried to install a couple of basic programs I am familiar with and ones suggested by Lifehacker.I wanted to install Tweetdeck, which meant installing Adobe Air. I duly downloaded Adobe Air but it then says I need to choose an application to open it. Assuming that the bin file was a zip file I looked in the software centre and found 7zip. Told it to load that but then couldn't find where it was. Its not listed in the Applications drop down (top right) so I found 'search for a file' and entered *7zip* to be shown 5 files. All but one appear to be a form of image file the other (7zip.desktop) isn't an exe either. Double clicking on it just gets me the following in something called gedit.
I then gave up and used google to find the program and download it, but just came across the same problem. Why oh why is there not some default program already loaded for unzipping files? How can I find 7Zip (I have already looked in the bin folder on the system drive but nothing there) and run it to tell it to make itself the default for unzipping files?
No matter what site I try to get a file from, when trying to download - let's say - a .pdf file, I get a dialog box that tells me that the file could not be saved,"because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator." This is on my laptop only, a clean install of Lucid Lynx, the files download fine on either of my desktop machines, each an earlier Ubuntu release. I'm using Firefox and cannot try another browser since I'm unable to download one. Can't seem to find anything relevant in the log files. What could be happening?
