Ubuntu :: XP / Kubuntu - If Delete Kubuntu What's Happen To My Boot Cycle

Mar 31, 2010

XP Pro SP3
Ubuntu 9.10
Kubuntu 9.10

Tri-booting. They were installed in the order I listed above. I ran into a few bugs with Kubuntu, so I no longer want to use it. I want to use GParted on a LiveCD to format Kubuntu and expand my Ubuntu home partition to sit on top of Kubuntu's space right now. If I nuke Kubuntu, will Grub still exist with my Ubuntu/XP entries to boot?

Ubuntu :: Point To Kubuntu CD Instead Of Kubuntu Repository?

Mar 7, 2011

I would like to apply KDE on my Kubuntu because the current one blew up. But each time I to sudo get-apt it seems to be fetching from the cloud. Is there a way I can make it to read from my local Kubuntu CD? I have both Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Kubuntu Live CDs.

I believe the local disk read should be faster to translate than to bite the bytes across thousands of miles over the wire right?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Kubuntu To Dual Boot?

Apr 8, 2010

I am trying to dual boot Kubuntu with an existing Windows 7 already installed. I downloaded the Kubuntu iso and burned it to a DVD. I changed the boot order in BIOS to accept the optical drive first. Kubuntu installer starts, I can select a language and can choose to install. However, the problem happens right after I select install. The screen goes dark and the blinking white tab disappears, nothing happens, and I can do nothing to trigger any response. Now, I have tried the alternative text-based installer and that works. I mean that it installs, but when I try to boot Kubuntu after the installation nothing happens and the same or very similar thing happens that occurred back with the non-text installer.

I don't know what to do or how to diagnose the problem. I thought it might be the boot loader or maybe the graphics card, but I'm not sure. I'm very new to anything Linux and I'm not the most computer savvy person.

I'm using a Gateway NV79 laptop
Intel Core i3 330M
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD with 128MB

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu 9.10 - Boot - No Gui - And Other Desktop App ?

Aug 14, 2010

I was running kubuntu 7.10 from 2007 till two days back. Thought it quite old, so wanted to upgrade from 7.10 to 9.10, and if I like the latest kde 4 (since I've not used it yet), the plan was to use the lucid lynx. The two phase upgrade from 7.10 -> 8.04 -> 9.10 went seamlessly without any hitch.

But now the problem started to occur, and I will point them one by one:

1. While booting, the startup splash screen falls into a console which read "checking battery state ... DONE" and it stays there forever. So, I opened another terminal by ctrl-alt-F1, gave my login id, password, type startx to go into the graphical mode.

I checked the /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc file and made the Code:

I Also tried the other suggestions like restarting the kdm and dpkg-reconfigure. But the problem still exist.

Now I see, that the console is not stucking at check battery state message , rather its going to the tty1 and asking for the login/password.





My xorg.conf display section shows:


Now, I don't have Nvidia graphics card installed, so can I safely remove whatever lists in Synaptic searching with 'Nvidia*' ?

2. I want to stop the notification/system sound for application, e.g. while closing a button in griffith or closing a window in pidgin the system emits a sound, I want to stop all these sounds, how to do that?

3. In kde3, I can search file under the present directory using konqueror, now I see konqueror has a search bar, but that is for web, not in the local file system. I am missing this very helpful feature of konqueror, can I somehow brought it back?

4. This issue is not 9.10 specific but faced in 7.10 .. Whenever I try to play an audio cd the system just freezes. The only in error dmesg is

Ubuntu :: Cannot Boot Kubuntu / Enable This?

Sep 22, 2010

I have been running ubuntu lucid for awhile now and a few days ago added the kde environment. I walked away from the computer earlier to comeback to a frozen screen. So... I did a hard reboot and bios is fine and then I get a blank screen for about 10 seconds, a few things flash very fast( cannot reAd ) and the monitor turns off. I did reboot like a billion times and once was able to get a kubuntu screen that says somehing along the lines of " error initializing .. Files missing. /tmp would you like to fix auto or manual" but igot a response saying cannot fix and it went back to a blank screen. I've rebooted many more times to get this message to appear again, but it fails to do so.... So, after that long story I hope Someone can help. I would greatly appreciate it!!!
Thank you,

Ubuntu :: USB Install Kubuntu Won't Boot?

Dec 11, 2010

I did install Kubuntu 10.10 LVM Encrypted from Alternate CD on dual boot XP with Ubuntu 10.10.http://members.iinet.net/~herman546/p19.html My problem is,that when installation asked me for where to put GRUB I didn't type anything because I have GRUB2 already installed. Now it won't boot. Tried Bios to set USB as 1st boot,and HDD as a 2nd option. It went to 2nd option,with GRUB2. So I hit "c" and "ls" showed only HD0 and HD1 (HD has 2 partitions,1st XP and 2nd Ubuntu 10] and no SD found. How can I fix this? Installation took for hours,would be nice to fix it without reinstalling it again

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot Kubuntu From USB Drive?

Apr 9, 2011

I'm trying to boot Kubuntu 10.10 from my USB drive. I checked the BIOS, so it will boot from "removable drive" first. But it still boots my Xubuntu installation from the harddrive. I tried it on 2 different computers, but both had Xubuntu 10.10 on it. They both boot Xubuntu. And when I tried to boot Kubuntu on a Windows Vista laptop, without Xubuntu, it just boots!

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot In Kubuntu After Restart The Pc

Oct 2, 2010

I have a new Dell 3500 laptop with a dualboot Windows 7 and Kubuntu 10.04. Directly after installing Kubuntu the pc was able to restart without problems. However having shutdown the pc once and restart again it fails to boot in Kubuntu.

No error messages are shown, nothing at all. What happens after selecting Kubuntu in OS's, for a couple of seconds a bar ("-") flashes upper left corner of the screen. After that the screen goes entirely black (as if it were shut off).

Ubuntu :: Installed OpenSUSE - Can't Boot Kubuntu

Dec 21, 2010

I have Win7, Kubuntu and a third OS (and home) partition for trying out others. I did Arch, Debian and Chakra without problems with triple booting. I skipped the bootloader installation/configuration step when installing those, booted into Kubuntu and ran update-grub to get the new one added to the boot list.

I used a separate partition for /boot (sda6), and have only one hard drive in this machine.

Following the same procedure (skip bootloader install) with openSUSE 10.3, I managed to loose the ability to boot Kubuntu.

I know the Kubuntu partition is fine (or at least still intact) and have since been able to get Windows added to the grub menu after a few attempts with grub-install and update-grub, which boots.

Installation :: Ubuntu Won't Boot From Live CD But Kubuntu Will?

Dec 23, 2010

I'm trying to run Ubuntu on an old laptop, a Gateway M520S-H2. The Kubuntu 10.10 live CD runs fine. Right away the menu comes up allowing you to check the CD, try it, or install it, and so on. But the Ubuntu 10.04 live CD, it shows "Ubuntu" on the screen in a logo-ish way for several minutes, then the "Ubuntu" deteriorates in an unhealthy looking way, then the screen just sits there blank forever.

So then I tried an Ubuntu live DVD. Same things. I checked both the CD and DVD for errors, the DVD with Ubuntu's checker and the CD after I burned it. Also, both disc work on another computer.

Does anyone have any idea why Ubuntu live CD doesn't work on this system while Kubuntu does? Must it be something with the GUI? DO you think I'd have more luck with Ubuntu 10.10? (worth a try I guess...)

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu Maverick Slow Boot?

May 26, 2011

I swapped out the hard drive on my laptop for a bigger one and put Kubuntu 10.10 on it back in March. The one big complaint I have is that it has a ridiculously slow boot time in comparison to Ubuntu 10.04. I have since installed most of the Gnome Ubuntu desktop through the repos and switched from kdm to gdm but I still have this relatively long period of blank screen with cursor until it goes straight to the gdm. The plymouth boot screen won't show at all. Is there a relatively simple fix for this?

I should add that I am not interested in updating to Natty. I have a limited bandwith I can use and a lot of accumulated software through the repos that would require several gigabytes of reinstall.

Ubuntu :: Get Kubuntu To Automatically Go Into Boot From Cd On Start Up?

Jul 16, 2011

My son dropped my laptop and broke the screen so I decided to use it as a project.

1 I managed to install kubuntu on it unfortunately it was the 64bit version not the 34bit one. The problem I'm having is that the external monitor only works after kubuntu boots up so I can not view the set-up boot options. What I want to do is put win 7 on it as I have a mate that needs a computer and he is pretty computer illiterate.

2:It will boot into G-parted and I have made a ntfs partition for the win 7 OS to go into. I have another duel boot desktop so followed what I did with that.The problem is that as I cannot see the initial start up screen and can get it to boot from the win7 boot disc that I have(this is a working cd I have used before) Is there a way I can get Kubuntu to automatically go into boot from cd on start up etc?

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu 10.04 Will Not Boot After Safe Upgrade

Aug 17, 2010

I just ran sudo aptitude update and sudo aptitude safe-upgrade. Now, the machine won't boot. It's a 64-bit system with two disks. Both show up in the bios, and I have tried booting from both. The boot process gets past the motherboard splash screen, then the grub countdown, and then it says:
Boot from (hd0,0) ext3 [lots of numbers and letters]
Starting up...

Then, this error messages appears, very briefly:
Cannot reserve MMIO region
and then the screen just goes dark.

Fedora Installation :: How To Add Ubuntu And Kubuntu To Boot List

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu / Windows 7 Dual Boot Setup?

Feb 18, 2010

I just bought a Dell 537s machine and configured it for dual boot of Windows 7 and Kubuntu 9.10. On my old dual boot machine I had the Windows System and the Linux System on different disk partitions. That way I could write fstab in such a way as to make the Windows System read-only as seen from Linux, so Linux couldn't mess up any Windows System files (and since Windows can't read ext3, Windows couldn't mess up the Linux System).

But the new machine came with Windows 7 installed and gobbling up 3 primary partitions. Kubuntu installed itself in such a way that Linux can read/write to the Windows System. This makes me nervous that Kubuntu might be able to mess up Windows 7.

Is there any way to make specific Windows 7 directories/files unwriteable as seen from Linux without altering their behavior in Windows 7?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Install OS X After Kubuntu 10.04 Dual Boot

Jun 23, 2010

Having successfully installed kubuntu 10.04 on my Powermac G5 I was wondering if I can install os x and dual boot, there are plenty of tutorials around but all of them involve installing kubuntu on a system with os x already installed. If there is any danger of damaging Kubuntu then I will leave it as I really don't want to go through the hell of getting it working properly again! Also I have plenty of hard drives kicking about - would it be safer/easier to install os x on it's own hard drive? And if so how would things work with yaboot?

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu Changed Boot Splash Screen?

Jul 20, 2010

I recently installed my first distro, Gnome Ubuntu Linux 10.04 via WUBI dual-booting alongside my Windows. I decided to try the other desktop environments. So I installed Kubuntu-Desktop (KDE) and Xubuntu-Desktop (XFCE) using Synaptic Package Manager.

However, Kubuntu KDE changed the boot splash screen into a from the default Ubuntu one, to the Kubuntu one. Also Xubuntu XFCE changed the log-in screen to the Xubuntu one. I DO NOT want these changes. I just wanted Normal Ubuntu-branded Ubuntu Linux with the option of logging in into the desktop environment of my choice.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot XP And Kubuntu 10.10 GRUB?

Nov 20, 2010

My system has 2 hard drives, a 400gb master and a 250gb slave. sda (my main 400gb Windows drive) has XP on it. The slave (sdb) has 3 partitions:

sdb1 is for my downloads (NTFS ~180gb)
sdb2 has Kubuntu 8.10 installed (ext3, 60gb)
and sdb3 is the swap (3gb).

I want to do a destructive upgrade to Kubuntu 10.10 - I have the CD already and burnt. I know I have to select the partitions manually due to the complicated setup, I know I need to format the sdb2 partition to ext4, mount point /, and the swap can stay the same. On which hard drive should I install the bootloader? I can't remember where it is installed now, all I know is I had a lot of problems with the install.

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu Can't Change The Boot Splash Screen

Aug 3, 2011

I have a Dell dimension 8300 dual booting with windows 7 and ubuntu 10.10. I installed BURG on it since I didnt like the text grub style. Problem is I cant change the splash screen no matter what I do, or changes I make. My screen resolution is 1280x1024 and my video card is an Nvidia card.

Originally the splash screen was a purple screen with ubuntu 10.10 white text and some dots on it. After installing the plymouth themes, now it has changed to a blue screen with Kubuntu(?) on it... Id like to know whats wrong and how can I change the splash screen?

UPDATE: Ok I went to synaptic and saw plymouth.kubuntu-logo and kubuntu-text were installed and enabled (had litle ubuntu logo to the side). So I removed those 2 files then did a reboot. Now im back to the purple screen with ubuntu 10.10 white text and the dots but I still cant change the splash screen...

General :: Trying To Install Kubuntu Dual Boot

Apr 11, 2010

I want to dual boot kubuntu. I am a linux noob so have basically no experience with linux except what i have done of the live cd. My problem is that when I get to the part of the installer relating to partitions. It wont allow me to select the free space I have shrunk off my windows/data partition. it calls the space unusable and will not allow me to proceed when it is selected. Shouldn't the installer turn the free space into a partition for kubuntu to install to? The installer also show a bar wich marks off the partitions and how much each one takes up it does recongnize that there is free space because it tells me that I have 25 gb free.
