Ubuntu :: Unable To Play Videos Properly After Dual Boot Install

Sep 29, 2010

i just installed ubuntu 10.04 on my imac. i can play videos from videos no problem but when i try and play avi, mov or any other video format, the movie player quickly opens and closes. when i try with vlc player, i see the player bar but no video. when i try with smplayer, i can watch the video but when i go full screen, the movie doesn't take up the whole area of the screen. it stays at the same small size.

what do i need to do to make this right? i installed the ubuntu restricted extras. did i miss something?

Ubuntu :: Attempting To Partition To Dual-boot Properly - Unable ?

Jan 2, 2011

I'm running 10.04 on Wubi in XP and want to partition to dual boot properly. I've done the permanent grub-update issue fix for Wubi so I've got the time to figure this out, I'm just at an impasse right now.

I've tried both GParted and PartitionMagic Live CDs and have been unable to shrink my main partition down. It's currently at 45 or so GB with about 22 GB empty. I've turned off my virtual memory in XP as well and no dice. I keep getting the error in GParted during the shrinking process. It doesn't really explain why, though.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Play MP4 Files Properly

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Videos Won't Play After Nvidia Driver Install

May 9, 2010

I have an Asus ul30vt with the Intel 4500MHD/Nvidia G210M hybrid graphics. I finally found a way to get the Nvidia card to work. I followed these instructions [URL] and now my nvidia card is working. Now though I can't play a single video through the movie player that comes with Lucid 64bit or VLC. I have tried various movies in different formats and different resolutions, both hd and sd. Every video just shows a black screen with sound in the background.

EDIT: I set the output on vlc to X11 and now my videos play but 720p is p little choppy sometimes and 1080p is completely unplayable. Using the Intel card 720p was perfect and 1080p wasn't nearly as choppy but still not really watchable. So something must be messed up because this card should play a lot better than the Intel.

Ubuntu :: Install Ushare To Be Able To Play Music And Videos On Xbox 360

Feb 22, 2011

So in trying to install ushare to be able to play my music and videos on my xbox 360, I have apparently screwed something up and now I can't get ushare to work. I can't even get it uninstall and do a fresh install. I used the instructions found here: [URL]. I got down to the basic configuration tool. I entered the name of the media server, which I called Ubuntu_Media_Server. Then I identified my network interface, which was my wireless connection (wlan0). Then I told it what directory to share, which was /home/ryan/music and hit enter.

It did exactly what it was supposed to do which was to restart ushare. And then, oops, I forgot, I wanted to be able to see my videos as well as my music, so I went back and ran the same command that I had to start the configuration tool which was $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure ushare and voila, I went back and added in the directory for the video folder that I wanted to share and hit enter. Again, it restarted as expected then it said permission was denied to the video folder. So I went to the video folder and gave permission for it to be shared. So then in all my illustrious wisdom (which apparently equates to dumbass), I decided to completely uninstall ushare and do a fresh install. Then it wouldn't reinstall, same problem permission denied for the video file.

SUSE :: Unable To Boot Properly - System Is Unable To Read Startup Information From Hard Drive

Jan 19, 2011

I am running the latest suse release downloaded directly from their website. I ran the installation after buring the dvd and everything seemed to be working fine. after the installation i ran updates and used it for a little bit. When i shut it down that night and went to restart it I got an error that stated the OS wasnt there. I then went through the installation and everything and it retained the information from the installation before (web history etc.) but for some reason every time I reboot or shut it down the system is not able to read the startup information from the hard drive and will not come on without me re installing it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Re-load Grub Following Windows 7 SP1 Upgrade On Dual-Boot?

Apr 28, 2011

A few days ago I went to perform the Service Pack 1 Upgrade for Win 7. This crashed out with an error. On researching the problem I found a solution to fix the problem by marking the Windows partition as active. I did this (via Computer Mgmt -> Disk Mgmt). This allowed the SP1 upgrade to work, however on reboot I got an error BOOTMGR missing. This I rather rashly resolved by using the Windows 7 install DVD in Recovery mode to reinstall the Windows Boot manager via bootrec /Fixboot I thought I would then be able to use the Opensuse 11.2 install disk to fix grub.

I use the Opensuse install disk and select Repair system -> Expert Mode -> Install New Boot Loader then select Other -> Reread Configuration from Disk. This adds Win 7 back into the grub menu. I then select OK and get the message "the bootloader was installed successfully". The problem then comes when I click my way through OK and Next to finish the install. At the end of the process I get the message "An error occurred during the installation" and I'm no further forward.

FYI the PC has a single SATA disk installed partitioned as follows:

dev/sda1 100Mb Win System Parkition
dev/sda2 Windows NTFS
dev/sda3 Windows FAT

Ubuntu Installation :: Play Rift And Minecraft - Dual Boot Windows Xp X32?

Mar 16, 2011

I currently only use 4 programs

Google Chrome

Now the reason im thinking about switching from windows xp to Ubuntu because i have more ram than it will accept I have 4 gigs and its only using 2 I also know the reason this is (because its 32 bit not 64)

Code: Is it possible to play Rift on Ubunutu? Is it possible to play Minecraft on Ubuntu? Can i run Google Chrome on Ubuntu What is the ram limit for Ubuntu? Can i run Rocket Dock on Ubuntu or does Ubuntu have a similiar built in feature. And is there a possibilty of Rift and Minecraft running worse on ubuntu than they do on my crappy xp os? How do you install ubuntu without a disc? How do i duel boot windows xp x32 and Ubuntu?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot On Dual-boot XP After Recovering Windows Bootloader?

Jul 18, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Windows XP installed on my laptop. Usually when booting, I get the GRUB 2 menu and I can boot into either Ubuntu or XP.I was playing around with EasyBCD, then after trying to remove it I was unable to boot into Windows, I used a Windows 2000 CD recovery console to fix the MBR (using: fixboot and fixmbr).Now Windows starts up when I power on, but I don't get the grub menu anymore with an Ubuntu option. If I boot from the Ubuntu Live CD and try to mount my Ubuntu partition (/dev/sda5) I get this error:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda5,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub2 - Dual Boot Karmic / Unable To Boot Into Archlinux Partition

After installing karmic with Grub2 I am unable to boot into Archlinux partition. Grub2 has removed the last line of the Archlinux boot stanza! It used to read:-


Following the Grub2 tutorials I have tried editing /etc/grub.d/40_custom as follows:-


But no luck. Only way into Archlinux is to get into the edit shell and manually add the missing line and remove other stuff not needed. I have spent hours trying to resolve this issue and I am fairly p----d off

Ubuntu :: Unable To Properly Install/uninstall Anything?

Mar 8, 2010

I recently installed Deluge 1.2.9 so that my brother might be able to use his Droid to control torrents remotely. Immediately thereafter, I began experiencing problems with installing and uninstalling any software I attempted to install or uninstall. The problem seems to be an inability to do something (not sure what) with my kernel. Here's the output from the last installation I attempted (Deluge 1.1.9 from Add/Remove Applications)

Ubuntu :: ATI Driver Unable To Install Properly On Natty

Apr 30, 2011

I've recently switched over to Ubuntu 11.04. I installed Natty by wiping out Maverick entirely. Everything worked well, until I tried to install ATI graphics drivers through the instructions found here: [URL] The installation goes fine without any errors; however, when I reboot, nothing shows up on the screen. I can hear Ubuntu's startup sounds, but there are no visuals. When I attempt to go to the ATI Catalyst Control Center in Recovery Mode, I get this error:

Quote: There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linux edition. It could be caused by the following. No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning properly. Please install the ATI driver appropriate for you ATI hardware, or configure using aticonfig.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling these drivers multiple times, and I've also tried using the generic driver detected by "Additional Drivers". None of these work at all, I cannot see anything on the screen when any ATI drivers are enabled. I've even tried re-updating Natty via CD, but none of this works. I have a Radeon HD 3450 graphics card, and my CPU is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5400+. I'm on 64 bit Ubuntu. I had no problems with my drivers on Maverick.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot 10.10 Desktop (32 Bit) In Dual Boot With Win 7 64 Bit

Jan 7, 2011

I have a Sony VPCZ13C5E with Intel Core i7 M640 @ 2.8GHz and Windows 7 Prof 64 bit.
It has 4 x 122GB SSD's in one Volume type Raid 0 using Intel Rapid Storage Technology.

The installation prog did not offer to install alongside an existing (Win 7) system, however after installation I was able still to boot Win 7 from the Grub Menu, but the Linux option just gives the black screen of death.

Booting from the 10.10 LiveCD and running sudo fdisk - l gives "unable to seek on /dev/sda". Also I have had a message "unknown filesystem type 'isw_raid_member' although I have forgotten where that came from!

The LiveCD shows that the filesystem does seem to have installed OK on the ext4 partion of 100Gb which I had kept for it, however it will not boot.

The results of Boot_info_script are shown in the attachment Results.txt

I have tried sudo mount /dev/mapper/isw_dijbjabefg_Volume07 /mnt and it gives no errors.

I then tried sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sda which gave no errors but when I reboot and choose Linux the result is still the black screen of death.

I understand that the problem may be one of Ubuntu drivers having to catch up with the latest technology but given that Ubuntu can partition the swap file and the ext4 system I seem to be so close.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get AVI Videos To Play At All

Apr 4, 2010

I cannot get AVI videos to play with the Totem movie player that comes bundled with Ubuntu 8.04 on the Dell Mini 9. I keep getting: "Could not determine type of stream." Randomly, one or two of the dozen or so videos on my SD card will work, but most will not. This is very frustrating because all the videos I download are always in AVI format.

I tried used the synaptic package manager find an alternative player and tried MPlayer, but that didn't do anything. I'd just get a blank screen on everything. Using the tutorial in this forum, I got GNOME Mplayer, which also didn't work, but even a video that worked with Totem would only play audio with GNOME Mplayer.

I looked in the repository for video codec updates but didn't see any. What do I do? Is there like a Winamp for Linux? This is a total bummer. I just want to play AVI files that are so commonly used for video.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Play Avi Videos In 10.04 LTS

Jul 31, 2010

I have used ubuntu for a long time but always using either a live CD or my Flash stick.

On past Thursday i decided to install ubuntu on my laptop and i did it . It is light and healthy (ha ha). Any way, I would like to play AVI, MKV, RMVB, and MP4 videos but i couldn't. I tried a lot of debian packages and drives (i.e. files with .deb extension) but no result except installing RealPlay that i am using it to play mp3 files only.

can you give me some packages to play those files. (I can't connect my laptop to Internet for the time being). In addition, I have Huawei E1750 USB Modem but the system does not recogize it. Is there any way to play those videos and surf the net using the modem in UBUNTU 10.04 LTS.
