Ubuntu :: Desktop Changed After Applying Updates?

Jun 18, 2010

So I just recently installed Ubuntu Lucid Lynx over my old XP system and I have been loving it so far. I did run into a problem though. Shortly after installing Ubuntu, it prompted me to install updates and I did so. After the updates had installed, my computer restarted and the whole desktop theme/look changed to a older looking version of Ubuntu. I really liked the look of Lucid Lynx and have been trying to get it back.

Ubuntu :: Cups Printing Breaks After Applying Updates 10.4?

Jul 22, 2010

I noticed that after applying updates to my ubuntu 10.4 desktop my printer was not working. I discovered that cups was no longer running and I was unable to get it to start. After re-installing cups using the below command everything is now working. This is the 2nd time I've had to re-install cups after patching.

sudo apt-get install --reinstall cups

This appears to be a critical bug: #554172

Fedora :: Unable To Login After Applying Some Updates To F11 / Fix It?

Dec 12, 2009

After applying some updates to F11, I was unable to login. After putting the username and password in, the dialog would go away and it would appear that the window manager was trying to load. Somewhere in the process the mouse and keyboard stops responding. The HD activity lights flashes for quite a while but later goes out.

Hoping that F12 would help, I upgraded. The upgrade went well but the problem still exists.

Security :: Error On CentOS Server After Applying The Latest Updates

Jun 8, 2011

I just put the latest updates onto My CentOS 5.6 server. It started life as a 5.4 Server, then the upgrades took it to 5.6.

The latest updates did a Kernel Update and the server sent me two messages : -

Ubuntu :: Wireless Stopped Connecting - Applying Regular Updates Via Update Manager

May 9, 2011

My self-built PC had a BT wireless adaptor in it which worked, albeit after a bit of a faff, with Ubuntu 10.10 in connecting to my BT HomeHub2.

When I came to use it last week it would not connect. I'd not changed any hardware but I had been applying regular updates via Update Manager.

Bearing in mind the "faff" factor, I decided to try a different (Edimax) wireless card but got the same result. Upgrading to 11.04 has made no difference either.

It does *try* to connect but fails, so I think the card is installed correctly. I've also tried a full reset on the HomeHub and the setup works fine with W7.

Debian :: Some Of The Icons On The Desktop Changed And All Of The Icons In The Drop Down Menu On The Bar At The Top Of The Screen Also Changed?

Jun 19, 2010

I recently installed virtual box on debian and after it had finished my terminal informed me that I could remove some "unnecessary" software by use of sudo apt-get autoremove. When I did this, some of the icons on the desktop changed and all of the icons in the drop down menu on the bar at the top of the screen also changed to ordinary folder symbols. The theme that I was using also went away. I restarted the computer and it booted back into a shell prompt with no GUI. I tried to get back to the GUI using alt+f7 but it didn't seem to exist

Ubuntu / Apple :: Cannot Install Updates - Root User Changed

Apr 16, 2010

Ubunto 8.4, running on 2nd partition on Apple Intel iMac. Several months ago, following a routine update, I found I could no longer install routine updates. Investigating further, I find
"You don't have permissions to..."
then sudo: /etc/sudoers is owned by gid 1002, should be 0.
That's not me! I am the owner and root user of this computer. How could this get changed? How can I change it back to me? The Linux platform of the computer has not been exposed to the net except for Ubuntu forums and updates. No one else has used this computer.

Debian Multimedia :: Icedove Updates Changed Display Accounts And Folders

Dec 31, 2015

Running Jessie 8.2 and Icedove 38.4.0. I just applied some updates and now Icedove only displays the number of unread messages in the folders.

Previously, it displayed the number of unread and the total number of messages in neat columns. Now it is a single number of unread in parens.

Is there any way I can get the display back to the previous format of unread# and total#?

Ubuntu :: Desktop Icons Changed On Reboot?

Jul 31, 2011

I recently edited a .pptx presentation in LibreOffice, and it wouldn't close, until finally I had to force it to quit. The document recovered fine, and I saved it and all is good. I thought.

A couple of icons on the desktop acted weird, as in they wouldn't move, and I got a blank notification window when I tried to access them. So I rebooted.

Now, Launcher icons that had color are all in black and white, or most are, my desktop icons are b/w, and no longer have the icons that were associated with them originally. They seem to operate well, everything just changed.

I am running a Dual Core AMD Phenom II X2 565 64bit processor, 2G Ram, Natty, generic kernel, Radeon 4290 graphics.

All of my windows (I know, bad word, but what else do you call them?) have changed to b/w themes as well.

I've been using Linux for about 15 yrs.. and this is driving me crazy.My daughter often plays on my linux box - a kinda-fresh f12 install.. running gnome.SO one day I go on my computer and my icons on my desktop are as if she changed my display to 800x600 - since the icons are so huge - but web browsing & once i open an application the sizing is fine.Wondering what she may have done to make my icons so huge.i can't seem to figure out any settings for this - she was messing with accessibility options since she had some software keyboard coming up at login too

Ubuntu :: Nothing Updates On Actual Desktop

Sep 1, 2011

I've been having some problems with my desktop. My windows and my sidebar work fine, it's just nothing updates on my actual desktop(like the wallpaper, files, etc.). For example, if I mouseover one of my files on my desktop, nothing happens. I can right click on it and it comes up with the right menu, but it doesn't select the file or anything. I just changed my wallpaper and nothing happened.

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Updates - Empty Desktop ?

Jan 29, 2011

Ubuntu 10.04, gnome, nvidia 7000 series card. Recent kernel and nvidia updates caused this situation. I boot to a login selector,like normal. When I login I get my bootup sound and background, but no panels. Right clicking does nothing. I booted up a puppylinux cd, deleted xorg.conf, and can now get to a working desktop. I have, through the additional drivers utility, deleted and reinstalled nvidia current driver. Twice. No change. Windows XP (On another hard drive) works well, so it's not a card problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Security Updates - Now No Desktop Effects

Mar 27, 2010

I installed ubuntu a few days ago, today I got like 250mb of security updates to I let them run, then restarted, now it keeps running in low graphics mode, everything looks rubbish and I have no desktop effects, the sound has also stopped working. Everything was great prior to this, I was beginning to love the switch from ms to ubuntu. The sound/video are both via hdmi so I am imagining its something to do with the graphics. I would wipe the system and start fresh but it took me so long to get my sound and wireless working.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Effect Won't Enable After Updates In Lucid?

May 6, 2010

The reason why I'm pissed because so many people out there that use Linux aways say Microsoft sucks. But I have more problems with Linux, at least with Microsoft problems I can solve. Now since I got that out of my system, here's my issue.

I just installed LTS 10.04 everything was working fine, I have an ATI 5700 card installed so I installed the ATI drivers not the open stuff. After install the drivers worked perfectly no problems. After several days of using the computer, I said I'll run some updates. I did so and rebooted my computer and BOOOM now my ATI drivers do not work. I can't enable desktop effects, can't use cube etc. Not only that but if I go to the prior build it won't work there either. If this was windows 7, I would just reinstall and it would work.

Luckily for me I made a image of my Ubuntu 10.04 and did a restore and everything went back to normal because I restored the image prior to the update. Now just for kicks I ran the updates again to be sure the updates did indeed break the vid drivers. Yep, after the updates ran, reboot, BOOM broke again. What gives? Is it the kernel updates? If so then I guess I'll run updates without updating the kernel. By the way I did try to install the drivers that come with Ubuntu but that work either. I guess I have to do the restore again. I rather use the ATI drivers vs the open stuff.

Questions are the updates unstable? If it is then why release? Can anyone provide any solutions? Should I run updates but skip Kernal changes? If not then what is blowing up the drivers?

I went to the Application launcher -> Configure Desktop -> Desktop Effects and everything was grayed out!! except for the following message Desktop effects are not available on this system due to the following technical issues:"

But, what technical Issue?? there was nothing else written! Googling for the issue has actually left me more confused; but I am still posting the content of my ~/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc file

Ubuntu :: Desktop Environment Wont Load After Hard-Crashing During Software Updates

During a software update the machine froze for a long time, I had no choice but to hard-crash (hold the power button to shutdown) starting up again I can get to the login screen and log in but there is no desktop environment visible, just a mouse pointer (which can be moved about) on a blank screen. I'm using Karmic Koala with Gnome (I am relatively new to Linux, I am essentially using the default package)
