This always used to mount automatically and has suddenly stopped. Same result if I use smbfs instead of cifs. I have worked around this by adding noauto and then mounting it in /etc/rc.local.
Anyone else had this and fixed it so that the share mounts at boot rather than login. I do have some cron tasks that require this to be mounted and assume they will fail unless I login immediately after a reboot.
When I installed slackare 13 it detected usb drives and cameras automaticallyow it doesn't. I am runnning a 13.0 system, not current, so I have only applied the updates in that branch (iirc including a new kernel).nowadays when i plug a device in it does not seem to be detected by HAL (i.e not in KDE).However the device is listed if you use the command "lsusb" and the computer obviously knows it has been plugged in as there is a relevant entry in dmesg.Sorry for the generallised nature of the post, but I don't really know anything about HAL or how it can have stopped working
I would like to exec a script whenever a user mount a device. The device could be an internal device (for example a partition on a second hard disk) or a removable one (for example a usb hard disk). The script must have sudo capabilities even if the user is not included in the admin group. Is it possible?
The specific question: I would like to add acl option to a device whenever it is mounted. I tried fstab but it's changing the behaviour of nautilus see:
[URL]... so I would like to create a script with the command
Code: sudo mount -o remount,acl /media/data and auto execute it any time data is mounted.
After performing an update that the OS told me to do, I no longer have any sound available in any application. I tried rebooting into older versions of 9.10 and the problem persists. It is not a hardware issue, because the sound is fine in Windows.
Old HP computer, came with XP, installed Ubuntu 8.03, upgraded to 9.10, installed xubuntu-desktop for speed.
Ever since I've started dual-booting Ubuntu with Xp, I've been able to access my XP partition by going to Places-HP_PAVILION, which has always been mounted at /media/HP_PAVILION, but recently, within the last few days or so, it hasn't been appearing anywhere. I'm still able to mount it if it use # mount /dev/sda2 /*mount point*, but that's a pain, and I'd rather not use a workaround if I don't have to. Any suggestions? I'd really prefer if it mounted to /media/, and had it's own shortcut in the Places menu, like flash drives, memory cards, and such get. I've tried my Flash Drive, and that does everything it's supposed to.
Ubuntu and I'm using the latest stable version. Yesterday I had my sound working, but today my sound has stopped working.I've taken the following steps without success:System -> Administrator -> Hardware Devices (finds nothing)
A couple days ago I booted up my Ubuntu 10.10 machine as usual,but the wired LAN connection did not work; it doesn't seem to see any wired connection devices. I can still connect to a wireless network with no problem, and if I plug that same ethernetable into another machine it works fine. I've been happily using this setup for weeks; the LAN only stopped working a day or two ago. So I figure there's two possibilities:A recent update caused NetworkManager to stop working with wired LAN connections, but I'm e only persothed affected (unlikely)My motherboard's ethernet port died (this motherboard only a couple weeks old, so this also seems unlikely)I'm not good at diagnosing problems with networking, so who can tell me where to st
I have no idea what happened. When I restarted my laptop a message telling me that my hardware cannot support Unity came up. This is quite impossible, because I've been running Unity with no problems since 11.04 was released.
Compiz says that the interface is unity, and when I checked in login screen, it's not set to Ubuntu Classic or anything, just Ubuntu.
I have an asus EEE 1015N. Everything worked fine yesterday. I packed my computer, and went back home. After turning it back on, not only it didn't connect to the wifi network, but it did not even detect it. I know it's not broken or anything like that because when I boot into windows it works fine.I've been trying every solutionven in the "sudden wifi problems" threads in the forum (including checking the wifi power button, and trying to manually assign an access point to it), but to no avail.
My skype has suddenly stopped working. It starts then stops halfway though the startup. If i run it from the terminal it say Aborted as it stops. I've triedupdating the whole system, including enabling thee and backports options in software sources. I've tried re-installing skype, I've even re-installed the whole system.
I'm running 64-bit Ubuntu 11.04. I recently updated virtual box and wine. I also installed the expansion kit for the virtual box. Now Ubuntu doesn't read my sound card. I tried reinstalling alsa and pulseaudio but that did not help.
aplay -l shows no sound cards.
I have a Realtek ALC892 8-Channel HD Audio sound card.
I've started to set up a server at my house, where I eventually want to run it headless, and I can just VNC in from my other Desktop. I installed Ubuntu 10.10, setup remote desktop on the server, and from there was able to do any work remotely. That was nice. I turn the computer off at night, and the next day when I was going to work on it, I cannot VNC in anymore. One day passed, and now every time I try to use VNC it comes up with "Failed to connect to server" I also set a static IP address on the server too, so I know the address isn't changing every so often.
I am a proud user of ubuntu and basically this is my desktop: I have got rid of the bottom gnome taskbar and replaced it with cairo-dock and the top toolbar is only showing one pixel with a delay scroll down so when i hover by it it doesnt keep popping down unless i leave the mouse there. anyway thats besides the point. i use cairo-dock and have done for over 4 months. then all of a sudden it stopped working. I don't have a clue why, perhaps you have encountered this problem and know of a solution. im using 9.04 jaunty and latest cairo-dock. when i type cairo-dock -c into terminal i get:
Version: Ubuntu 10.04 Relavant hardware: P5QL Pro built-in ethernet, cable modem with linksys wireless-G router (although problem is with ethernet connection, not wireless)
One minute my ethernet was working, and the next it stopped working. The only thing that I did between it working and not working was install electricsheep from Synaptic and then I shut down the computer. When I restarted a bit later, no ethernet connection shows up.
I checked the cables, made sure they are in tight.
My laptop connects using the same ethernet cable fine. So its not the cable or the router.
I reset the router and the computer at the same time. Still doesn't work.
I don't know where to even start with troubleshooting this sort of problem. Everything to the extent of my computer knowledge seems to be working fine.
I can't get any sound from either online audio or from a CD in drive. I've watched videos with sound with only occasional problems until today. I have been using MPlayer with internal audio 1 output - analog stereo output. When I start a vid, it will begin to D/L and play, but without sound. When I try to check the volume level everything pauses and then my system freezes. Sometimes it will release in a few seconds, but mostly it won't allow me to close Firefox and if I try to close the tab or window or Firefox, I have to reboot. Sometimes the vid will D/L without a problem, but no audio on playback. Oddly, when I bring up the system monitor, processors will show 1 or 2 cores stuck at 100% while the others fluctuate wildly. Download speed falls to almost nothing with occasional blips or nothing. I checked several sites and they all have the same problem. I have checked my physical connections, and bios settings.
There is an option for a RS780 Azalia controller 1 output Digital Stereo (HDMI) output, but I have not been able to make it work since the system was new. I don't know why.
This is the most recent SYSLOG file. The pulse audio errors have always been there, but since it didn't seem to affect playback, I didn't run it down.

Only been using linux for about 2 weeks now. Yesterday my internet worked without a hitch now today all of a sudden it wont connect. I had the "Install problem! The configurataion defaults for gnome manager have not been installed correctly" so I deleted my music directory and now it boots fine, dont know if that might be part of the issue/ I dual boot win7 and i can get wireless on that partition but not ubuntu
I have recently noticed that my keyboard shortcuts stopped working.Things like F2 to rename files/folders, I think its ALT+F1 to bring up applications menu, however it comes up with a dialog saying Power Information. I also can not use backspace in FF to go back a page and things like that, which I find very annoying because I prefer to navigate with the keyboard and that deal.Yes I have Compiz installed however I have for a few months now without this problem which appeared only within the last fw days. I have had k at the keyboard shortcuts in Compiz and set them to default but nothing changed
I'm running a gateway lapbook w/10.04 LTS and an etheros wirless card. Card has been working fine for almost a year - from cold boot, warm boot, and recovery from standy (shut lid, open, press power button). I was fiddling with setting a static IP for the wirelss card by modifying the interfaces text file. I made some changes, and restored the file to its original contents after some noodling around. Wireless still worked fine after that. Last night I took the laptop out of suspend as usual - lifted lid, pressed power button - but the wireless indicator remained grayed out and I haven't been able to reenable wireless connectivity since. ifconfig shows the wireless card is there, and cabling the e-net port directly to my hub works fine.
Earlier in natty this was working completely. It's only just started happening about a week ago. I don't know what changed, all I know is it suddenly stopped working. Basically the bar at the top is still there but there is black underneath. I can put windows there but I cannot see them (Just black). If I click on an indicator it looks on the bar as if it is being clicked but I cannot see the menu. I have attached a screenshot.
My pc went kaput a while ago and I've been using my friends laptop for the mean time. The HDD is having issues so I've been running ubuntu 10.04 on a live 8gb flash with persistence. I got real comfortable with this and saved important data on the live usb.Earlier today the pc did not shutdown correctly. When I restarted, ubuntu started booting and even showed the 5 moving dot loading screen, then it suddenly stopped and displayed the following:Quote:
I use a small application called bendometer.jnlp. On my desktop running 10.04 it runs fine after opening with "OpenJDK Java 6 Web Start".
I have installed the same application on my brand new laptop running Ubuntu 11.04 and it was running perfectly until yesterday. Yesterday it hung during the startup and since I killed the hung process it has refused to start again. If I now run it in a terminal using the command
Code: javaws "/home/steve/Music/Bendo/bendometer.jnlp" I get the following errors Code: Unable to use Firefox's proxy settings. Using "DIRECT" as proxy type.

According to the documentation, all that is needed to write proper rules is one match operator (relevant info) and one assignment operator (name of port). I am running kernel 2.6.31-22, so udev rules are valid for use (they require at least 2.6.15). My only guess is to include something that identifies the serial port.
ethernet suddenly stopped working and can't get it back, says something about device not active but it works well with the Debian live dvd, what could be the problem?I'm using mobile internet now and this seems to have happened after setting up the mobile connection but I dont think it as anything to do with the wired problem.
Recently my wireless stopped working on my Debian testing system. It just doesn't connect. The best I get (only after a reboot) is that it says it did connect, but failed to get IP address. But usually it just tries to connect, disconnects straight away, connects again etc. so it never manages to associate correctly.
I am sure it did work about a month ago, stopped working after recent upgrades from the repository.
I bought a Dell Inspiron with pre-installed ubuntu. All has been working for the last year and recently my integrated webcam stopped working. I was trying to use it on skype and it did nothing, although the program recognises I have a webcam, I tried cheese and the power light on my webcam comes on but again the screen does nothing.
I installed Ubuntu 10.4 side by side with my Vista. This is on a PC I leave on permanently and use as a sort of Sever, so Security and Network connection are VERY important on this device. I use it for documents and IP PBX (telephone system). I currently use Vista and 3CX, but I plan to roll it over to Unbuntu full time once its up and runnng correctly - I will just need to change the Grub2 conf priority. After install, all was fine and I managed to make many changes to settings, apps and updates, but I have noticed in the past week when going in to make further changes the network has suddenly stopped working! According to Network Manager and the icon on the panel it is connected and I can not see anything obvious that is not correct. I tried doing a PING (192.168.1.1) from Network Manager to the main router, but it failed. I know that there is nothing wrong with the network nor the card or PC it all sits on. It's working now with Vista and my other machines. It must be a config some-where.
