I previously installed Ubuntu 11.04 or whatever it is on my computer alongside windows vista and everything was fine until i noticed the display being all screwed up. I changed it to my resolution and the right side of the display was black (vertical), then the screen would go black for 2 seconds,then come back and it would be a different color. Any ideas? I'm thinking it's the intel driver, maybe it didn't update or something? (Intel Pentium Dual Core) Soon, ill upgrade to a newer intel driver
I installed the Cario dock and love it but when I start my laptop it goes to the right side then I configure it to go more left and it fixes it but when i reboot it way to the left the default center setting does not keep it centered any one else have this problem ? 10.04 32 bit
I suddenly have a couple of unexplained black bars on the right side of my screen. I recently installed conky and guake, and GNOME Do, but the problem happens whether or not they're running. I've tried rebooting, and turning off desktop effects.
he is used to the regular netbook edition before the unity-style. The small netbookscreen is just not good for this new appbar on the left side (it's one of the old eee-pc's). None of us like that solution, and I wonder if its possible to move the bar on the bottom side of the screen so it will be a bit more Windows 7-ish?
I have installed following this guide [URL]... x_and_Mac_OS/X but I have an hp g71 349wm with intel chipsets, on ubuntu 10.10 I can't use nvidia, my system hates me if I try to install those drivers, that guide says I need either nvidia or ati drivers, I have not tried to get ati drivers going as when I tried to get nvidia going, my system totally crashed and ended up being totally unrecoverable for some reason, anyway my problem is that after installing pylotro and lotro and patching, I start it up and all I get is a big black square on the top left side of my screen.. no idea what to do to make this work. the only way to get rid of the square is to reboot.
i have a 17" screen and i got my firefox web browser split in half only covers half of the screen i want it to open on the right side of the screen everytime i open it but sometimes it pops up on the left side of the screen how can i fix it so where it pops up on the right side of the screen only and not the left side here is the snap shot of my screen and what im talking about.sometimes it opens where its at other times it opens on the other side and it ticks me off i always have to drag it over to the right side of the screen
I normally use gentoo, but have been persuaded to put Ubuntu 10.10 with Unity on my wife's laptop (HP Pavilion dv5). It's a rather steep learning curve. How do I add a new printer? CUPS asks for root's password, which is unknown/undefined. I tried sudo, but I'm not in the sudoers file. Catch 22? How do I add an application to the launcher on the left side of the screen? Drag & Drop does not appear to be available. How do I get back to the standard Gnome desktop?
I have two (or more) video files that I want to play side by side. I could do that simply by opening them in two seperate windows, but that would also seperate all the controls (play/pause/forward/...). I want to play them in a synchronized fashion so that pause/forwarding/... works on both videos simultaneously so that they always stay at the same timecode and they don't go out of sync. How would I accomplish that in Linux?
This is needed for viewing only, so compositing them into a new video file first should be avoided if possible, but if there isn't an easy way to do that, I welcome answers doing it with composition as well.
If a file gets created in the user's Desktop folder, or if a drive is added to the machine and a Desktop icon is correspondingly created, they will by default appear on the left side of the desktop (unless, in the case of the latter, the specific drive has been created before and dragged to the right side, in which case GNOME will remember to put it in the same place).
Because I have a terminal window embedded onto my Desktop in the top left corner and occupying most of the screen), I keep my icons on the right side of the Desktop instead of the left (Mac style) - Any time I add a new drive or a file is sent to the Desktop, however, I have to kill the terminal window to be able to click on the icon, then drag it back to the right side, then restart the terminal.
Is there any way to tweak GNOME so that these icons are added from the top right corner and down instead of from the top left, automatically?
have been trying to setup a dual boot system with ubuntu and XP running side by side on my Thinkpad T41.tried it a few times and always causes the same problem. i have 40 gig HDD, on which i create a 13 gig NTFS partition and leave the rest as free space. then install XP on the NTFS partition. no problems.
then i boot from the ubuntu disk (9.10 Karmic) and install using the "use free space" option at the partition section. ubuntu installs ok, and boots fine from GRUB 2.0. BUT when i select the XP option from GRUB's list, it starts to boot XP, i get the standard XP loading screen for three seconds and then it crashes to a blue screen critical problem, and restarts the system. when i then boot from the xp cd and go into recovery mode CHKDSK will not recognise the disk, and DISKPART shows one HDD at 35 gig which it cannot access.
this means i cant run FIXBOOT and get my xp install running again. every time i do this process it produces the same problem. tried at first with xp installed on whole HDD, and reducing the xp partition size. killed XP. then tried ubuntu first and xp second - but this caused the same inaccessible disk problem - xp would not recognise the partitions and would not install. so i slipstreamed my XP install disk to SP2 hoping this would make it recognise the partitions, but no luck there. so had to format all and repartition the 13 gig NTFS for xp. installed xp again without difficulty but ubuntu install killed my xp in the same way.
I'm looking for a software to compare two documents (for example .odt) side by side or highlighted in graphical way. I want to do the same as Word 2010 Compare Documents (see this: Microsoft Word 2010: View Two Documents Side By Side). I found in OpenOffice something a bit similar that, see in <Edit> -->> <Compare documents>, but it's not a good visual presentation. I'm looking for a software who give me the possibility to see the differences between two documents side by side, or highlighted.
I'm wondering how much of my currently installed packages I can transfer to a new system...I have a HDD split in two. I have 10.4 on one half (/dev/sda6) - my working system for the last year or so since my last upgrade - and I have just installed 11.04 on the other half (/dev/sda. I wanted to check out the new version rather than upgrading. note I have my home folder and all stored data on other drives (zfs mirrored disks) - the boot disk is mostly OS related... I can overwrite /dev/sda8 with impunity as long as /dev/sda6 is intact....
What I want to do is capture the wide variety of packages I have installed on the old version and install them onto the new system - without using the dist-upgrade mechanism... I've had it fail too many times leaving me with a complete rebuild being required... is this (partially) possible or have too many core packages changed? I was especially thinking of something like [URL]
I have ubuntu 10.04 on the home screen page in the left have colum you have a list of menu items when you install ubuntu, I happen to deselect one of teh menu items. I now cannot reinstate the menus I have included a screen-shot of the home screen so you can see the menu items I have available on the left hand side
i have installed Ubuntu 10.10 and played around a bit and have got it booting into cli instead of the login screen. gnome is my default desktop environment but i wish to run kde along side to play around with. When i boot into kde using startx kde (usualy just using startx) all i get is a mouse, black background and a terminal screen.
I did a search but for this topic and I thought it would be discussed quite a bit, did not get any results. Maybe I did not use the correct words? Anyhow, I am running Kubuntu 9.04 and wish to switch to Ubuntu Karmic 9.10. I do still want to keep Kubuntu 9.04 as a boot up option temporarily in case I have major issues with Ubuntu. Ill also need to know how to get rid of Kubuntu after Im sure all is well with Ubuntu. Finally, there are a ton of boot options (different kernels Ive upgraded to) in Grub when Kubuntu boots up. How do I get rid of those? I also have a Windows XP partition that I boot into occasionally.
Just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my home laptop after testing it (and loving it) on my work desktop just this morning. First time Ubuntu user and looking to be a long one, too.Anyways, I used the "install side-by-side" on both machines, but my laptop, with Vista, has a weird side effect. At the boot screen, I chose Windows Vista and it booted the recovery tool (I forgot the exact name). I was worried at first, but when I chose the actual Windows Recovery option below it to attempt to fix it, it booted Vista. So it seems in the process of partitioning the HDD for Ubuntu I somehow switched what each partition boots. Is there a way to correct this?
I would like to know how I can view two windows side by side on the same desktop (ex. have two openoffice files side by side) and be able to work on both of them at the same time rather than having to click back and forth from window to window. I have seen this done on people that have MAC computers is there anyway to do this on Ubuntu?
I am running 10.10 Netbook Edition. I added Terminal Server Client to the Unity Menu and I typically run it in Full Screen mode to manage serveral windows based servers. The problem is that TSC displays perfect in full screen (unity tool bar hidden) but when i move the mouse over to the left side of the screen i get the pop-up text balloons from the unity below it. I cannot click on any items along the left edge of the remote desktop window including the windows start key. I want to confirm if this is a bug? and how to report it if so.
I'm using NFS and I have the following problem. After ~100 days, the client and server lose connection, but the client doesn't know about this, it gives no error. The problem is that the changes on the server side aren't visible on the client side.
I have recently downloaded and installed Ubuntu 11.04 inside my copy of Windows. When I boot my laptop, I have the option to either boot in Windows or Ubuntu. When I boot in Ubuntu, I get the login screen all OK. But when the screen loads up, it is missing the top and left hand side navigation bars. It then appears to be trying to refresh itself (unsuccessfully) as after about 30 seconds the screen goes black and then the wallpaper image will come back, still without the navigation bars. This keeps on happening until I reboot the machine. The only way I can get the screen to reboot OK is to run the repair option on boot up.
I have notices that after the above has taken place and I have finally got the system to boot all OK by running the repair option, the system will not connect to my mobile broadband via the USB dongle. Not sure if they are related, but at this point they seem to be.
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my computer. And now for some reasons I need to install Windows 7 side by side with it. I tried it before and ended up loosing my Ubuntu partition. I wanna keep Ubuntu as my main operating system.
I am running Lucid, but i want to test Debian OS, but i don't want to run in VM, therefore i had decided to install Debian side-by-side to Ubuntu.Debian also uses Grub-2..? i am asking this because once i install it, i don't want to lose my Ubuntu, therefore i need Advice before install it,.
I have to say that I don't mind Unity all that much! Certainly not as much as I had expected to, given what I had been reading before the upgrade from Maverick. I'd like to go on playing around with it. However, I would also like to continue to be able to use Gnome 2 sometimes, with Compiz and Emerald, as I have done in the past.
The trouble is that whenever I log into the "Ubuntu classic" desktop, it loads compiz, complete with the Unity plugin. Then I have to disable the Unity plugin manually every time, and do the same (with no panel) whenever I log into Unity.
Is there a way I can configure it to only load the Unity plugin in the Unity desktop, but not in the Gnome 2 desktop?
It used to be a sysadmin/yast setting wherein you configured the display.It is now done under "personal settings"-->"display" meaning ordinary users can set their own preferences. That's really nice and all, but I'd rather it be sysadmin-only than have to go through several minutes of futzing around with it every blasted time I login. So, how can I make side-by-side permanent either for myself or for all the people who use my system (just me)? Thank you.
This module is only for configuring systems with a single desktop spread across multiple monitors. You do not appear to have this configuration.Since I obviously do and since I can get the desktops to spread across the monitors (after futzing for several minutes).
