Ubuntu :: Trying To Restore Pam.d ?

Apr 4, 2010

I've been doing a bit of customization on my ubuntu install and have added "auth required pam_fprint.so" to my pam.d file in order to allow fingerprint recognition upon boot. After rebooting, I discovered that my fingerprint reader no longer functions (I get the message "Module is Unknown"). I was wondering how I could remove those lines from the common-auth file. I have tried booting a live CD and typing "gksudo gedit mnt/etc/pam.d/common-auth", but when I try to save, I get the error "Could not find the file /home/ubuntu/mnt/etc/pam.d/common-auth."

Ubuntu :: Using To Restore Files?

May 30, 2010

My friend's computer is giving him the blue screen of death (have to LOVE Vista), so I decided to help him. I am pretty sure that it's from a virus that corrupted Vista, but I could be wrong, it could be the hard drive that went corrupt. Being that it's a laptop, I am hoping it's just the OS.

Now, I have Ubuntu on a disc, and it runs very smoothly. (Didn't install it, just chose run on the disc.) However, I couldn't see the files on the computer. I was wondering if there is a way to get those files without installing Ubuntu, because I am planning on upgrading the computer to Windows 7, but using the Ubuntu disc was the only way I could actually get to the desktop.

So, I guess my question is: is there any way to get the files from the computer on the C drive without having to install Ubuntu

Ubuntu :: How To Do Remastersys Restore

Jun 26, 2010

I have remastersys backup on DVD but I have no idea how to restore. There is install option when I boot from DVD but it doesn't install anything to hard drive. It looks as if my system was loaded to memory or was run as LiveCD. In Nautilus I can see my original root and home partitions (I mean these on hard drive) as separate drives, not partitions.On remastersys website I didn't find any information.

Ubuntu :: External HD Restore?

Jul 7, 2011

here's the situation: My WD external drive got the tables corrupted from being improperly ejected, I plugged it in and after mounting, The entire folder hierarchy was there, but none of the folders showed any data in them, it seemed that they were empty, but disk still registered being 40%full of data)After digging around on google/forums I discovered that what might be wrong was a damaged superblock.I unmounted the external HD and ran gparted to "fix" the problem. It deleted the file names and now after mounting the drive in Nautilus it seems like they have been deleted for real...I'm normally very careful about my data but now I'm afraid that i've lost everything! i'm still hopeful however because running fsck on /dev/sdb1 it still prompts me to delete "orphaned long entries" which i haven't done yet.

Ubuntu :: How To Restore Gnome In 10.04

Apr 16, 2011

I pulled a bone headed maneuver when I thought I would try KDE. I used Synaptic and thought that I had done all correctly but on reboot all I got was a BG screen and a terminal wanting me to log in. I did but remained in the terminal... lost! I had passed on my 32 bit copy of Lucid so I installed the 64 bit copy on a new partition, so as to recover all my data. The problem is that the Flash Player does not work and I'm not inclined to fight it into living. I am downloading the 32 bit copy, right now but I need to know if it is possible to repair my old 32 bit install and save many hours of agony?

Ubuntu :: Restore Login Screen UI

Apr 14, 2010

i just installed Ubuntu 9.10 today and got the regular login screen like this:


But I was tinkering around while I was there and hit the accessibility button, chose one of the options that had something to do with contrast then the UI changed colors and became Blue and white-ish. I unchecked the contrast option again but the UI didn't change back to its original colors like the image above. Rebooting didn't work either.

Ubuntu :: Restore After Ending Processes?

May 27, 2010

I started simply to end some processes to see if this would help. Ending dbus-deamon and pushing the shutdown button seems to shutdown the computer and temporarily solve the problem. I see that there are better solutions, so I hope it wont occur again.The problem is, I also ended a lot of other processes, like the clock, trashcan, workpane buttons, the sound button, the WiFi button and the show desktop button (and maybe some more I don't know of. I thought these buttons would automatically reappear after a reboot, but this is not the case. I could add some buttons manually, but I still haven't found the sound button and the WiFi button. Also, when I minimalize a window, it doesn't show anywhere on any panel.Luckily I can use alt-tab

Ubuntu :: Can't Restore Netbook To Factory

Jun 4, 2010

A friend gave me his netbook because he left for the military and it has Ubuntu on it. I know nothing about it and really need it to have the 7 home that came with it. I have searched forums and tried to figure this out on my own but I keep getting nowhere.

There is no CD drive on the netbook so I have been trying to install 7 with a flash drive. The netbook did not have a disk but I did get a serial number for 7 and I have an ISO of 7. I put it on my flash drive and tried to boot it, but when I click on unetboot menu "default" it just starts the 10 second timer over and doesnt load.

I used a live usb of ubuntu to go to gparted to delete the partitions so I could load up the usb with 7 on it, but again it does not work. It gives me a grub error if I try to boot up. I know there I deleted the partitions, but maybe something is still there?

In short: I need ubuntu off and windows 7 back on using only a flash drive, a serial for 7 and an ISO image.

I dont know if this matters but its a Toshiba Satellite T-115D.

Ubuntu :: How To Create 10.4 System Restore

Aug 11, 2010

First off, Ubuntu 10.4 is working great on my new laptop and I really enjoy it. And it is super fast. My question is now that I have everything all set up, all my packages, my windows settings, and my ATI driver, my updates, etc., I want to be able to keep it all. Maybe somebody could point me in the right direction or give me some better terminology. Would love to learn more about distros in the future. For now I just don't want to have to do all this updating again. There are a few things I have found like Clonezilla and others, but they seem to be a bit advanced and more for servers.
