I have upgraded to 10.10 and I want to go back to the font used in 10.04. What was the name of the font in Lucid? Moreover, how do I make Google Chrome adopt this change? It is currently rendering all the web-pages with the Ubuntu font and I want whatever 10.04 was using. If I change the font in the Appearance -> Fonts panel, Google Chrome does not update.
Trying to configurate gadmid-bind, I change the user and group of my entire filesystem, I archive some advance getting all back but for now,sudo leave me with a problem about guid, i changed sudoers to root againg, but i don't get all back.I dosen't have network connection, because nm-applet dosen't start on my user, and when i run on a xserver with root user it give me: The device is not ready.
i feel really stupid for "upgrading" to gnome 3 to try it out and read warnings saying it can mess up your system. i went on thinking oh it'll be fine and the update process messed up or something. now i have a barely functional desktop and just want to go back to unity 11.04. i added the ppa from[URL]
I upgraded U. 9.04 to 9.1 over the net a few days ago and got stung by the 'Driver' issue. Namely, my nvidia card is not reconciled and as a result, the monitor remains blank. I am assuming that the remainder of the upgrade went o.K. though I can only follow the boot sequence on the monitor during the bios start up.
I have a live disk of U. 9.04 and want to revert back to it, preserving my data. When I put in the disk and am hopefully asked if I want to "Upgrade", will it work in reverse, so to speak. I understand that there is a problem with compatible libraries etc. but will it ignore this and simply replace the new with the old?
I installed the new version of Chrome yesterday and all of the fonts are way too small and the pages don't look right at all. I tried doing the page zoom, but that makes the pages look even worse. Has anyone had the same issue? Is there a fix? Is there a way to revert back to version 5?
When installing ubuntu I selected my back up NTFS partition as a swap drive for ubuntu and now i cant access my files so does anybody have a solution to revert the partition back to be Labelled as NTFS so i can access my files.
It seems I had some kind of intrusion and I found 6 files changed its ownership to user 1035 and group 1035, I don't know how but I need to change them back to its original owner (root) because one of them is the ls command and the other is the ifconfig how can I revert them to its original state? I cant do it with chown.

I had a desktop pc running XP home, my daughter has an Acer Aspire 100 running a Linux OS which developed a problem so I attempted to create a recovery disk from the supplied DVD onto a memory stick via my desktop PC. It transpires that the recovery wasmade to my desktop pc in error and now my desktop does not boot up at all. Is there a way to remove this 'recovery' at all and revert back to XP??
I made the error of installing FGLRX on lucid. After the install, Plymouth resolution sucks and my laptop will not come out of suspend/hibernate. When I use jockey-gtk to disable FGLRX, it will not allow me to use compiz for 3d graphics. However, out of the box, I was able to run compiz no problem.How can I revert lucid back to factory form, where it was able to perform 3d acceleration without the use of FGLRX?
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 and I have been keeping it updated via update manager.Last night the update manager popped up and I selected to update all required updates without checking what the updates were.While shutting down I noticed that I needed to reboot to complete the update, so I rebooted.After reboot the wireless network card disappeared. So I moved the PC and plugged in the ethernet cable. Oddly sometimes it shows disconnected for no reason and I have to reboot.What's even worst is that Ubuntu now locks up completely within 15 minutes of a reboot.None of the alt+sysrq commands do anything!How do I find out what the updates were and is there any way to I revert my system back to pre updates without having to reinstall?
ubuntu one takes like 30s to start all of the sudden (it used to be almost instantaneous on log in). This is an issue for two reasons: first is the fact that system performance is drastically compromised while ubuntuone-syncdaemon starts since it is accessing the disk as much as it absolutely can, which means that other programs also take forever to launch; second, when it finally does start, I am prompted to unlock the keyring, which interrupts whatever I am doing in a fairly annoying fashion and prevents the screen from locking properly if the computer is suspended.
While ubuntuone-syncdaemon is taking its merry time to launch, the status of the process is "uninterruptable," and an entire processing core is used at 100% with IOwait, as it is furiously accessing the hard drive.Is their any way I can get u1 back to original, unobtrusive self? Could this be indicative of a hard drive issue.
A while back I had to install an extra yum rpm repository to my CentOS 5 server as I needed newer versions of httpd (v2.2. and php (v5.1.6) than were in the default repositories at the time.
I now wish to revert back to the standard repositories, I have removed reference to the custom repository from etc/yum.repos.d/ and used '# yum clean all' but cannot seem update these packages when I use '# yum update'.
Is there a way of making the rpm packages for httpd and php go back to using the standard repos, or will I have to manual update them from now on?
Or could I uninstall those rpms and reinstall from default repo without breaking the whole server?
I am using the latest UBUNTU 9.10. It was working great. I logged in as Tom, put in my password and could do what I needed to do. Now when I go to the CLI through the terminal I get "Tom@new-host-2:~$ " which has no privileges. I obviously messed up something. I can't find a way to get back to my original prompt when I access the terminal.
I wanted to change the resolution of the splash screen because it looked too big for the screen's area. I installed Start-up Manager, which I don't like any more because of this issue, and changed the resolution. The result was a garbled screen and so I reset to the original settings and re-booted. Now I have another garbled screen with 2 side-by-side very fuzzy/unreadable "Ubuntu" images.
I had download ubuntu netbook 10.04 version and use it from booting by USB key. I found it quite useful from USB and eventually installed it on my Gateway netbook, that's where my nightmare started. At installation option gave me to ubuntu side by side with my Windows Vista on the netbook. It used part of hard drive space to create a separate partition for ubuntu. Intallation is OK but display is very bad particular moving the mouse around Firefox. Screen turned white back ground right with messy character font. It tried move around and have to restart ubuntu to get out.
I thought it might be something display drive not setup but found no option to make change from within Ubuntu. I had frustrated to search for fixing option and decide to "remove" ubuntu from the netbook. The worst, there is no option whatsoever on how to remove it. I search this forum and script to delete the partition from terminal. When it restart, the MBR or Grun loaded with errors incorrect file system. That mean the MBR not load and it is a netbook. It does not come with Vista CD for me to fix MBR nor resize the partition. I had to re-install ubuntu again back to square one to use it size by size with Windows.
Any one have a clean and details steps on how to remove ubuntu, resize partition and able to bring the netbook back to Windows only?
I want to change my computer back to its original self cause i have two computers in Ubuntu OS and i really just want one on it. My question is how can i change it back? I had Windows XP before ubuntu.
I recently had a problem in Ubuntu 11.04. I had just installed GNOME 3, however, I didn't really like it as much so I decided to go back using GNOME 2,but then a whole bunch of things happened. I tried re-installing GNOME 2,but then I lost the Ubuntu enviorment and stuck only with GNOME and now I'm only left with a terminal whenever I log in. how to restore Ubuntu 11.04 back to its original state, like as if it had a fresh installation?
After trying to do a upgrade to fc11 from fc10 it seems i am stuck between them. the grub loader only shows 1 fc11 kernel, but when i try yum update all the updates are fc10, Some libs are so.8 and some are so.7 namely libssl.so.8 and the missing deps are libssl.so.7.
is there a way to revert back to fc10 or force install of fc11.
I was trying out a theme from gnome-look (elegant gnome) and it had an option to change my gdm theme. I used it, did not like the look, but when I uninstalled it said there was no back-up. Now my gdm looks like something from windows 95! How can I reset it back to the original settings? I tried reinstalling GDM in synaptic but no change
installed F12 and noticed that the volume control applet is now all Pulseaudio rubbish, not Alsa like gmixer used to be. So now I don't seem to be able to mute my speakers when I'm using my headset, which in F10 I could do by just muting LFE/Center.Note I don't want the speakers to be disabled when I have the headphones plugged in (like Jack does) I just want to be able to control volume of the mixer channels individually - as sometimes I'll be playing music through the speakers and will receive a Skype call and want to mute the music, but also don't want the Skype sound coming out of the speakers - just the headphones.
I've tried setting up 4.1+input, 5.1+input, 4.0+input etc; but for some reason, even though the PulseAudio mixer thing has 5 individual sliders, they do nothing as they "jump" back to 100% when you slide them - even with the channels unlocked. gmixer and alsamixer do the job, but pulseaudio is the applet and only seems to control the master volume, not the individual channels. Any ideas - or perhaps a way to make gnome-volume-control revert back to actually being gmixer?
I just did a fresh install from 8.04 to 10.04 with separate "/" and /home partitions. I really wanted a new 10.04 system to start from scratch and rebuild it again & differently. Instead I got a really messed up system. Is there any way to change it to a fresh new 10.04 install. That nothing has been added to yet?
This is very important because on 10.04 my video card won't handle all the mods that I had on 8.04 and my system freezes very soon after I log on.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10, I removed the task bar at the bottom of the screen and replaced it with a new one. The problem is when I click on Fire Fox and by default Fire Fox would drop to the bottom of the screen, now it just disappears. Is there any way of putting back the original settings.
Seems that i have totally ****ed up my sony vaio (vgn-fz21z). I've been doing some partitioning and formatting without really knowing what i was doing. Now it is a mess.The vaio comes with pre-installed windows vista, which is no longer installed. I want it to be.Ubuntu 10.4 is installed. In grub I can choose vista but that is only vaio recovery tool. Which is not working. When I try the format cption and take it all back to the original settings, it says that c: is too small or missing.
I also have some cd:s with windows 7 and xp on, but they can't be read. Now the vaio is not even accepting my ubuntu live-cd. I have nothing of importance on the computer, so there would be no problem re-formatting the whole thing. Can it be done? I would prefer is the vaio recovery tool could be left untouched, it has its own partition. I guess I'm asking: is there a way from inside ubuntu to make a total system re-installation, get rid of different partitions and reconstruct c:, so win can be installed again?
