I need to change the language used by Ubuntu 8.10 (updated to 9.04) from English to Spanish. This does not refer to the keybord distribution. What must I do?Alternatively, I could remove Ubuntu so as to start from scratch again with a 9.10 CD. But I don't know how to make a clean uninstall. The 80 GB HD contains as well windows XP and boots with Grub. Originally the present Ubuntu was installed to an unallocated space left on purpose to receive Linux. Ideally this space ought to return to that condition to be able to receive the new installation.
How To: Uninstall/Remove Old Wireless Driver to make way for New Driver (RTL8191SE)?
Here's the new driver:
I have been having trouble with my wireless connection intermittently disconnecting and reconnecting repeatedly (sometimes every couple of seconds). I posted a thread about this here on Ubuntu Forums titled: Ubuntu 10.45 & NetworkManager Applet 8.0: Connects & Disconnects Frequently.
I was trying out things, many different scenarios, many uninstalls, and yestarday just ran janitor ? now I don't have panels, some buttons missing, but many are still here (but unistalled earlier). I would like to make a cleanup in applications/ the button graphics are "blanks" but their name is still there, and who know what else might be conflicting in the background. any useful commands for check-and-clean-and-or-restore?
I've been testing Mate since couple of weeks on my Jessie and now I'm convinced that is the perfect DE for me. So I would like to uninstall Gnome 3 without disturbing Mate and my system as well because both DE share many dependencies. If this is very risky I would like at least get rid of all gnome packages which are not shared with Mate.
I'm running it on a Toshiba Satellite laptop.After getting the OS installed and configured evolution, I did a backup of the evolution on my desktop version of 10.04 and attempted to restore it to evolution on my laptop and while it did seem to work, it became corrupted and now won't load.
I uninstalled multiple times and reinstalled to get the same problem. I also removed a number of folders trying to get a clean install but ran into the same problem as soon as restored again.How can I completely remove evolution so that I can get a truly clean install where the wizard comes up for set up again once I open it for the first time?
I'm trying to remove brscan that I had installed for my old scanner , but I get this message , any ideas how to remove brscan ? I tried the package manager, now it is stuck , I can't uncheck it ,can't reinstall it , can't install anything else because of this
Well, earlier today I installed 'conky-all' and now I can't seem to remove it. To install it, I used:
Code: sudo apt-get install conky-all
I then used a conkyrc that I found on an internet tutorial. It seemed to run okay but it was very ugly so I tweaked a few variables. However, after doing so, I couldn't get conky to work again. So, just to see if it was the variables that I set which could have broke it, I changed the conkyrc file back to that ugly one which worked before. I then tried to run conky again and this time it didn't work either.
I then decided to remove conky in an effort to reinstall the conky, this time just conky as opposed to conky-all. I used:
Code: sudo apt-get remove conky-all Thinking that I had successfully removed conky, I did another apt-get to install conky. When I couldn;t get that one to work, I tried to remove it. However, this time I decided to check and see if it was actually removed, by using:
I did a clean install of Natty 32 bit on my desktop last Saturday. Now the update manager wants to remove empathy via a partial upgrade. I waited for a day to see if the issue would be resolved, but it isn't. I cannot see the changelog either. On running
I am the only user on my laptop so there are somethings that I don't need.I would like to remove the login at start. What do I remove to make it go away? Second one is Keyring. Is it necessary? Can I remove it without causing problems?
When Ubuntu Software Centre removes software, it leaves files behind in File System which is owned by Root preventing me from deleting them.
1. Could this be why Update Manager is insisting that I install updates for software that I have removed and do not use?
2. There is one application I would like to re-install because it asked me technical questions before I installed it. I think I gave the wrong answer and when I re-installed it, it didn't ask the question again. It seems likely that there is a file somewhere that Ubuntu Software Centre didn't remove, and I could do with deleting but is owned by Root. How do I do this?
3. Should I have posted this query under 'Absolute Beginner Talk?'. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx.
as much as i am one for saving space and throwing out the trash. now my problem is the fact that I DO NOT WANT THIS program (localepurge) running on my system. i look and did everything i could. note : i am a noobie. when i config the program from the start i told it NO don't delete anything. and now that i have done some reading i do not want it working period. i could not find a way to disable or uninstall localepurge.
I am trying to streamline a desktop install into a more streamlined server-esk install. I have edited the inittab to change the runlevel at startup to 3. How do I now remove KDE completely? Also are there any other large programs I need to uninstall?
When I tried to uninstall some applications, pidgin, for example, via 'Add/Remove Software', YaST told me that I have to uninstall another 200+ packages. Is this something normal? I'm new to Linux and don't want ruin the system, so I seek for another way.
I found that 'Software Manager' can also be used to uninstall the package, so I use it to uninstall pidgin. The problem is after I pressed 'Apply' button, there are so many package installing by themselves. I saw that most of them are appended with '-lang'.
I am trying to update my bandwidthd but it says that i should reinstall it, but when i do that it just throws me an error. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 in case it helps. I am getting really frustrated by this and don't know to fix it because it wont let me uninstall, reinstall, upgrade, or update.
1 - Make a clean install of Squeeze. 2- Upgrade to sid 3- Run this command after installing xserver:
aptitude install kdm kde-10n-es kdebase
Then aptitude installs kdm, kdebase... and brasero, metacity, gvfs, gnome-control-center, evolution... (¿?) I only want to install KDE, why aptitude also install all this gnome crap ? And I say crap because I only want to install the KDE desktop, I use Gnome in my laptop =/ If you uncheck install recommends in aptitude you can make a clean KDE install.

I'm installing 10.4 x64 on a Dell PowerEdge R610 RAID 1 and the install goes fine until I have to reboot the finish it. On reboot after about a minute it gives the error
Code: Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems: -Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline/ -check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?) -check root= (did the system wait for the right device?) -Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev) ALERT! /dev/mapper/mysql1-root does not exist. Dropping to shell!
what to do and my co-worker who knows a little more about Linux can't get it to let him check any of the above common problems.
We're tried letting GRUB manually configure itself at the end og the install before we reboot and we've also pointed it to /dev/sba partition which is what should be the boot partition.
EDIT: in the code tag it's ALERT! /dev/mapper/mysql(one)-root.... the L and 1 look the same
I have a file server that has a raid array with a jfs file system attached. Whenever there is a power cut (quite frequently in our house), and the server is not shutdown cleanly, then the raid array is not automatically mounted since ubuntu doesn't know if the journal is clean. I have to then manually run fsck and remount the partition by hand which is a bit annoying. Basically, does anybody know if fsck can be setto run if a non-clean shutdown has been detected, or failing that, on every boot?
All I want is for my bootloader to show "Ubuntu" & "Windows XP" which are the only 2 OS's I have installed (dual booting). At the moment it shows Windows XP, Ubuntu, Ubuntu recovery mode & like 2 more.. which are also Ubuntu & recovery mode. I've never selected the other Ubuntu ones, only the first one. So, how can I remove the ones I don't want to show on the list.

I have a Proliant 7000 with 4 interfaces across 2 cards - 3 intel 10/100Tx and 1 intel 100FX. During install it detected the 3 tx interfaces - but couldnt see the network - post install the network devices were no longer there, their devices missing from /dev/.
Neither google nor a forum search have been particularly edifying, is this a known issue with any cards? If so is there a known fix? ifconfig gives me information for loopback only as expected.
During 10.04 install I ran into an error every time I tried to install packages, so I just skipped the step figuring I'd do it later.Boot up, nothing but the cd in /etc/apt/sources.list. Does anyone know where I can find the default sources.list?
