I've been using 11.04 for a few weeks now on my laptop. All of a sudden this morning, when I boot, it tells me that my laptop doesn't have enough resources to run Unity, although I've been using it the whole time. It's dropped me back to the old interface. Does anyone know why it did this?
I recently installed the newest version of Songbird, it worked for two days. Now when I click Songbird, it tells me it's starting down in the Window List, but it never pops up. I've tried all three methods from here to install it afterwards... none of them I got to work. Anyone have a clue what could possibly going on? This is on Ubuntu 9.10(32bit)
I am currently running Lucid,and in every single attempt to play any mp3,it claims that it cannot find a suitable plugin,which is weird because I am nearly 100 percent certain that I did install all of the restricted extras.The funny part is that it is trying to install a Soundblaster Voc plugin?
I wanted to use ldap to create users on my machine.I got LDAP set up via yast, and it seems to work OK. But when I create a user via LDAP, the system doesn't seem to want to know.LDAP actually creates a home directory for the new user, but the system merely assigns it a UID and nothing else.I have access to another opensuse system which does not behave in this way. I.e. I can set up a user exclusively in LDAP and the system will recognise the new user no problem.I have compared the two ldap configurations to see if there's some magic "propagate LDAP users to Local users" setting, but this doesn't appear to exist
I get an Untrusted Connection error when I visit this site to login into my GRE account, and I cannot add it as an exception, in Mozilla Firefox 4.0 on Ubuntu 11.04. When I visit the site using Chrome, I have no issues. Is this a bug in Firefox's certificate management? I'm using Ubuntu 11.04. I do not get this error in Windows' Firefox 4.0.
1. I didn't like the icon theme and changed it to Ubuntu Mono Light. But is there a way to get the Min/Max/Close buttons to how they are in Radiance when maximized, or is that dependant on something else?
2. Is there a way to disable the Unity dock, but not the Unity feature where the Min/Max/Close go into the command bar?
Just moved to Ubuntu 11.04 with unity and only have one problem...For most of my desktop needs I prefer to have the Unity Launcher up all the time (fullscreen apps don't cover it), and have set this option with ccsm.
However, when I watch mythtv, it is also under the launcher (and the top panel as well). How can I force mythtv to cover the launcher? What I really need is a keyboard shortcut to hide the launcher, but the only shortcut is for "show launcher". (I guess the devs assumed everyone would want it hidden by default).
This, by the way is not my usual way for viewing mythtv. I have a projector attached to the desktop PC and it doesn't get a Unity Launcher by default (in Twinview), so no probs. However, occasionally I want to watch something on my computer screen, and that is when this issue arises.
I got a fairly powerful media system standing in the living room. Most of the time it is idle, maybe playing some music. At the same time I got a pc in my office that is less resourceful. Sometimes I'll run programs through ssh with the -XC command. This way a program will seemingly run on my office pc, while it is actually running on the media system. However:
- 1 Sound doesn't transfer to the office pc.
- 2 When using a program I need to constantly be aware where I save my files. Sometimes it is located on the remote computer, sometimes it isn't.
Is there an alternative way to use the resources on the media system? E.g. run a program that is stored on the office pc and process it on the media system?
Both systems run Ubuntu (office 10.04 - media system 10.10).
I just recently upgraded to 10.04 (LTS), and I have been using stardict app for a long time with nothing but success on each of my laptops anc omputers I have had over the past 5 or so years. However, now on one laptop after starting the stardict app, using panel the applet I create on my xfce4-panel (as per normal), and looking up a word (highlight and press shift key which i use for quick word search using stardict), the app begins using 100% cpu resources and I am forced to kill the process.
The problem is intermittent, meaning it only occurs half of the time I am using startdict, while the other half of the time it operates normally. I have been trying to see if there is some sort of pattern, perhaps other apps running at the time the problem occurs, but I have not noticed anything that looks suspect, since I generally fire up stardict after boot in and have had it happen (the problem) without even any other apps open (just testing to try and find some sort of pattern to locate the potential issue).
I use a standard set of dictionary files for each of my comps, and currently have stardict operating fine on 2 other laptops, both running 10.04, with the same set-up (xubu, same apps, and settings pretty much) and no indications of this problem on either (other) laptop.
I installed ubuntu 10.10 a few days ago which ran very well on the live CD but after I upgraded to 11.04 Ubuntu uses just under 100% of my cpu after a few mins loged in and my ram usage increases by about 5MB per sec starting the second I log in. I am using Classic Gnome and it seems to do this wether I have metacity or compiz turned on. Does anyone know what is going on or know about a way to lower ether my cpu or ram usage
I don't know if anyone has used Damn Small Linux (dsl), but they've got a cool little system resource monitor builtin to the desktop on the latest version-- Not the old wmnet and wmcpu that they had before, and not the ones the come with ubuntu-- Attached is a screenshot, it's in the upper right corner outlined in red .
Was wondering if anyone knew the app that this was-- I checked their packages list and didn't see it, I don't know if they modified wmnet/wmcpu or something, but I think it'd be cool to have this on my desktop.Especially if it's from DSL, because that is a tiny distro that runs fast, it can't take up too much room.
I have a OpenSuSE 11.1 box that is running mysql and apache. My database is only about a megabyte in size and I only have a few users per day on my site. How is it that with 8GB of RAM over 5GB is being used?
After I reboot, my java process consumes 100% of the CPU then settles down to about 40% CPU and 12% memory, status sleeping (4 core AMD) I've removed the OpenJDK and installed Sun JRE but no difference. by comparison, Firefox with a lot of tabs is at 3% CPU and 5% memory. Is it better if I go to 10.04 LTS, 32 bit?
I am facing System Speed problem.i saw in top command Xorg process is using CPU and memory upto 75% most of the time,this is why System responding slowly.how to make it normal i do not know. Currently i am using AMD Athlon 64 HT technology processor(Socket 939)
Does anyone know of any decent web guides that will help me set up a DNS service running on 127.0.0.1 that will automatically forward requests like [url] to httpd running on 127.0.0.1 yet forwards requests to [url]to a 'proper' DNS service?

I just wondering what is the difference between RES, SHR, and VIRT.
1) The VIRT always seems to be higher. Is this using the paging file system. (virtual memory on the harddisk, the swap memory)
2) Is the RES memory the actual physical RAM memory?
3) Is shared memory sharing memory with other processes?
4) Just a final question. As I am running on a HP Mini 210, memory and CPU is a resource I don't have a abundence of. So if was to compare for example 2 difference browsers i.e. firefox and midora. What should I brench mark between to 2 to find what one uses less resources?
Hey,everyone! I've got Ubuntu 10.10 , when loading I see the following message: "atk: Resources not safely usable due to acpi_enforce_resources kernel parameter" What does it mean and do I need to fix it?
During random moments, pidgin will suddenly use up all of my processor, a large chunk of my ram (20% - 25% of 2 GB), and will become completely unresponsive. This lasts for maybe four or five minutes then returns to normal.Pidgin doesn't have any kind of terminal output when ran in a terminal, so I have no data to use that is of any help.
I have a problem with kmix, which uses 100% of my processor without stopping. And this is providing to rise of temperature above 80 degrees Celsius. The problem became actual after one of updates of 11.4 series.
i have 2 front ends that receive traffic (http server) and should run some scripts in crontab, some of the scripts should just being running by 1 server at a time (active one) and others should run on both. Regarding the http like is load-sharing i think i cant use heartbeat, right? heartbeat is just for active-stanby or can we use to a active-active as watchdog? i have a cisco css to load sharing the http, and i can make a watchdog script to the apache. Regarding the cron crontrol i was thinking to make a script that replaces the crontab file to whatever is the correct one.
When the heartbeat start what parameter is sent to the script that are resources? a start if active node and nothing if is the standby?allways start?how should i config the haresources to do it? what is the best way? i have other situation that is making a nfs server in solaris 10, i have 2 servers with shared disks ( sun array), can i use heartbeat to this too? it is possible to make it in such way that if i had i failover in nfs server the clients doesn't need to reconnect?
