Ubuntu One :: Right-click Sync Grayed Out

Mar 29, 2011

I have two hard drives, one is the file system, the other is for storage. On the file system drive, I can sync to Ubuntu One. On the storage drive, the option is grayed out when I right-click.

Edit: Finally found the right search voodoo to come up with this post. Unless something changed between Lucid and Maverick, it's only going to work within the home dir.

[url] I have just had a similar problem.

No network, and dhclient command allowed the machine to lease an ip address from the dhcp server. Networking capability back.

EXCEPT that Network Manager is still greyed out as unmanaged, and right click still gives Network Management Disabled.

Wonder what's going on with Lynx and NM?

Ubuntu :: Skype Just Grayed Out When Try To Create Account / Fix It?

Feb 22, 2009

So Skype installed after an error with msttcorefonts (it seemed to resolve itself - not sure how), but now I am unable to create a Skype account. On the "Create a new Skype Account" screen I fill in all of my information and check the little box saying that I've read all of the licensing conditions, but the "Sign Up" button does not activate for me to click...it's just grayed out. My original installation error said that it was unable to install all dependencies, and that errors were encountered while processing msttcorefonts. Could these issues be related? How do I fix it?

Ubuntu :: 10.4 Won't Print - Options Grayed Out / Cups Not Running

May 10, 2010

I'm not sure how it happened but recently when trying to print to a previously added printer, the printer does not show up. Most options are grayed out and clicking troubleshooter tells you that CUPS is not started. Latest guide I could find is for Ubuntu 9.04, options for restarting cups in 10.4 are slightly different (see below) To restart cups from terminal window in Ubuntu 10.4:sudo /etc/init.d/cups restartI looks like in Ubuntu 9.04 the command was /etc/init.d/cupsys restart. This should show the printer and open up the grayed out menu options, allowing you to print normally again.

Ubuntu Networking :: The Enable Wireless Function Is Grayed Out?

Dec 1, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu desktop 10.10 on an Hp Pavilion dv2700 laptop. Most of the time I have had no issues, however on two separate occasions the wifi and bluetooth have been disabled, the switch on the front of the computer has no effect.the enable wireless function is grayed out, so I was not able to enable it. The first time it happened, (I didn't have an Ethernet cord at the time), I booted into windows Vista, thinking I could connect to the internet and find an answer. Low and behold I had the same problem in windows, however I was able to enable the wifi and blue tooth in windows. Now, rebooting into Ubuntu, the problem was resolved. The second time around the same thing happened, and I booted into Windows to fix the problem. I have done a search for known bugs on this issue, but none seem to relate to my exact problem. Is there a way to enable the wifi when it is grayed out? like in windows?Like I said this has only happened twice, but I had to boot into windows to fix the problem. I really want to delete windows all together, but if I have to keep it around awhile to fix this issue I guess I will.

Ubuntu :: 252 Updates Shown But Option Buttons Grayed Out

Mar 9, 2009

I just installed Ubuntu 8.1 on a Mac Pro using VMWare. It prompted me that updates are due so I selected to update. Now it's at the Update Manager showing 252 updates and all boxes such as close, check, and install updates, are all greyed out and the cursor is showing the circle that it's working on something. I had this happen a few days ago so I rebooted. This is the 2nd time trying this and I'm stuck at the same prompt.

I have even manually gone into the update manager and selected even to check for updates and it freezes up. I have tried to search for a specific file and the same thing happens. I have used previous versions of Ubuntu and never had this problem. I even went as far as doing a fresh install and had the same problem.

Fedora :: PulseAudio Preferences Grayed Out In F12?

Jan 24, 2010

When I start PulseAudio Preferences (paprefs) in Fedora 12, all checkboxes for Network Access, Network Server and Multicast/RTP are grayed out. The feature I'm trying to enable is DLNA. Figuring maybe I'm missing some package needed to enable DLNA-support, I click the Install... button next to the checkboxes for this feature. Installation fails as I already have the rygel package installed, which provides the needed files. I have tried first uninstalling the rygel package and then reinstalling this from PulseAudio Preferences, but still no luck. what needs to be done to enable the grayed out checkboxes for DLNA-support in PulseAudio?

Ubuntu Networking :: Enable Wireless Grayed Out After Resume From Suspect With BCM4312

Nov 2, 2010

I recently installed 10.10 Maverick on a lenovo S12, and I've been having problems with the wireless connection. First I installed the Broadcom B43 driver. This driver seems to work well except upon resume, I'm no longer connected, and wireless is disabled, and the 'enable wireless' is grayed out and I can't seem to find a way to enable it besides a restart.

I tried what is suggested in this post: [url]





This doesn't seem to have any effect

I also tried the Broadcom STA driver. This was only better in that after resuming it tried to reconnect, but never managed to.

Fedora Installation :: Activate / Deactivate Buttons Grayed Out

Fedora Networking :: Network Manager Settings All Grayed Out ?

Mar 10, 2009

I'm running Fedora 10. My Network Manager settings are all grayed out. They are uneditable. I can see the detected settings, but not change them. All of the settings fields are disabled.

Is there a way to enable these, so that they can be edited?

Starting with the menu in the upper left corner of the GNOME screen: System/Preferences/Internet And Network/Network Connections

The Network Manager window appears correctly.

I see all automatically generated settings that were created for my various devices:

In particular, I want to be able to edit "Auto vmnet8", for VMware usage.

I know about the workaround of going back to the manual network configuration as used in older versions of Fedora, such as editing the files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* and then enabling the old "network" service and disabling the "NetworkManager" service.

However, this workaround really won't work in this situation. The VMware interfaces, vmnet1 and vmnet8, are virtual interfaces that *only* exist when the VMware services are running. The VMware services are started *after* the old manual network configuration would be applied. So, at the time the scripts in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts are processed, the vmnet1 and vmnet8 devices do not yet exist! I'm hesitant to change the numbering of services, lest other things break (VMware on Fedora 10 is rather fragile already).

I love the feature of NetworkManager to be able to automatically apply settings to newly materialized network devices (such as vmnet1 and vmnet8 when VMware is loaded). However, I need to also be able to edit those settings.

Is there a solution that will make my Network Manager "Edit" window not be entirely grayed out? I can see the settings pages just fine, but unfortunately, they are all disabled and I can't edit them at all.

Fedora Networking :: Network GUI: Enable Button Grayed Out

Dec 17, 2009

My MythTV box has two interfaces:

A 10/100 Ethernet interface built into the motherboard. (Recognized as eth0)

A USB wireless dongle. Linksys, I believe. (Recognized as wlan0)

Both of these were working fine under FC8.

I recently performed a full reinstall, using Fedora 12.

Both network devices are recognized. I can configure them, using the Network Devices GUI that comes with KDE.

In the case of the wireless device, I entered all of the required information. (Copied in from the FC8 settings.)

Here's the problem. Whether I'm the root user or not, the "Enable" button is grayed out.

Any ideas? I had *no problem* with this device under FC8. The hardware "I see you" messages in /var/log/messages don't suggest any problems. I'm not leaving out any setting information.

OpenSUSE :: KDM Login Settings Grayed Out. Can't Change KDM Theme?

Jul 5, 2009

I'm on openSUSE 11.1 KDE 4.3 RC, and I'm using the kde-branding-openSUSE with KDM from the factory KDE repo, and factory community repo - everything is up-to-date.For some reason my KDM login settings screen is ALL grayed out, so I can't change the theme/settings. I know that you can change it by going to yast and editing the /etc/sysconfig thinghich I actually tried doing, and failing, which is odd because I changed it once a ltime ago to glassified, but can't manage to do now...) I don't want to use a theme, though, but actually use my current wallpaper and set the settings in the login manager to something of my preference.

I read on another forum that Anjuta can only compile projects so I switched to Geany, same problem. Do I have to install a compiler?
