Ubuntu :: Doesn't Recognize My Hdd

Sep 8, 2010

I have an acer aspireone aod250, i putted an external cdrom and downloaded the ubuntu, tried to install it but it didn't recognize the hdd... i though it was the cd, i downloaded ubuntu netbook edition, it did the same. i thought maybe i could try another operative, i downloaded linux mint 9, did the same thing. then ordered a cd from ubuntu.com, got in today, and it doesn't recognize my hdd. btw, the hdd is a seagate momentus 5400.6 with 160gb. i already ran ubuntu with the cd rom and starts the instalation, but when it arrives to the partitioning part of the instalation, it doesn't detect my hdd. but the bios in the pc detects it.

Ubuntu :: Rhythmbox Doesn't Recognize MP3 Player?

Feb 20, 2010

No media player recognizes my Philips MP3 Player as such, I've put all my hopes into Rhythmbox, it seems to be the most likely one to work. Anyway, I have created the empty .is_audio_player file but still the player does not show up in RB. I can access the player just fine through Nautilus, and syncing it actually worked for a while, but now for some reason it has stopped.

Ubuntu :: Periodically Doesn't Recognize Input?

Jun 13, 2010

I have an Ubuntu 10.04 installation that I have been using for about a month. However, just recently, at random times for about 5 seconds I can't use my mouse or keyboard.When it does that, the computer isn't frozen, I just can't type.About 5 seconds later, all the text that I was trying to type suddenly appears. I have 4GB or RAM, and even when I barely have any programs running and at 0% of resource usage, the problem still persists. This has just been happening for the past day or so.

Ubuntu :: Gedit Doesn't Recognize Txt File?

Aug 19, 2010

I typed in a text file (Feb.txt) at work using the basic Microsoft Notepad text editor and emailed it home. When I tried to open it from the email using the default gedit I got an error message - Could not open the file /tmp/Feb.txt gedit has not been able to detect the character encoding. check that you are not trying to open a binary file. Select a character encoding from the menu and try again.The character encoding is set to 'automatically detected'.

How come it can't detect the encoding? I had to manually set the encoding to Western(ISO 8599-15) to load it. I can't remember this happening in the past, and it was OK loading one I sent earlier (Jan.txt) which presumably had the same encoding, as it was written in the same way.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Doesn't Recognize RCA Opal?

Jan 5, 2010

I have an RCA Opal, 4GB player. I am having some problems transferring music to it. I first try the player in MSC mode and just drag and drop the files I want to listen to into the Opal's Music directory. That works fine, but over half of the songs I transfer over end up in the "Unknown Album" file. I have checked the ID3 Tags for these songs and they are intact. Next I have put the player into MTP mode to try to transfer things with Rhythmbox, but Rhythmbox doesn't show the player in the sidepanel.

EDIT 1: It may be worth noting that mtp-detect in Terminal returns the message "No Raw Devices Found"

I am on Pidgin right now if anyone just wants to IM a response.

I am exploring Ubuntu 8.10 on my Asus netbook without yet installing it. While using Ubuntu I cannot get it to recognize any wireless networks.Is this because I am only exploring Ubuntu and it has not yet been installed? The networks are recognized when using the XP operating system.Will Ubuntu recognize the wireless networks once it is installed as the operating system?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Doesn't Recognize Password 10.04

May 8, 2010

I had the same problem with normal ubuntu, wubi or even after instaling it in a virtual pc

I've got a wireless router with a WEP security, when I choose my connection and put in the key it just tries for some time and then ask me again for the WEP key. And it goes like this on and on and on, I've tried to connect at some firends gome with the same kind of connection and it doesn't work either.

I think that in an older version I did connect to an unprotected connection but I cannot take out the protection because it is my roomsmate wifi.

Ubuntu :: New VGA Cable Doesn't Recognize Monitor - Low Resolutions?

Jan 24, 2011

first time poster after having read gobs of threads trying to find the answer to my issue here. I'll try to post as much information as I can, and then will supply whatever else is inevitably left out and deemed necessary. I'm running 10.10 on a Gateway MX3701 laptop which has an ATI Radeon Xpress 200M graphics controller (lspci | grep VGA) and am hooking it up to my Samsung P2770HD monitor/TV via VGA (VGA-0 port if that's important).

So, the issue: In resurrecting my old laptop by killing XP and putting on Ubuntu, I found I needed a VGA cable to connect to my monitor. Borrowed a friend's to get my setup going, and all was well in 1920x1080 with all the other monitor settings working well too (laptop monitor off, etc.. When my new VGA cable (cheap from Amazon) arrived and I shutdown, made new connection, and rebooted, my monitor was no longer recognized (it was before) and I am limited to weak sauce resolutions meant for my blinding grandmother.

So I've tried to find similar issues on here and have struggled to do so. I did find one thread that was similar, but the issue was never resolved.

Ubuntu :: Java Doesn't Recognize Default Browser?

Mar 17, 2011

I'm using SeaMonkey instead of FireFox, and this won't change. SeaMonkey is set to be the default browser in Preferred Applications I use a java chat client every day (.jar), which has a button that opens an appropriate web address.

The problem is, it opens that site with FireFox instead of my desired SeaMonkey.

The client runs fine with openjdk and sunjava too ( I have both installed ), but they both open sites with FireFox. In Sun Java 6 Plugin Control Panel I set the SeaMonkey launcher as "Command to launch default browser", but the client still opens sites with FireFox. As for OpenJDK, I haven't found any way to modify settings.

Ubuntu Installation :: Forced Upgrade From 7.10 On Sparc - Doesn’t Recognize The Cd Rom

Aug 14, 2010

Got kernel panic when upgradeing from 9.04 to 9.10... Have a tough time with this sparc server. On newer disto it doesnt regognize the cdrom in installation what will result in no install. I tried all trix I found on internet about this issue but none of them did it for me. So I went back in versions. When I come to 7.10 gutsy everything seems to work, so now everything is up and running.

But now I want it back on version 9.04. Last time (a year ago) I did the same thing, and just do-release-update to current version. Now that doesnt work. Maybe becourse I need some updates to gutsy, and the gutsy repositorys is not available anywere. how I can pass this upgrade to 8.04? I set the APT::Get::AllowUnauthenticated true; to pass this far...

Ubuntu :: System Doesn't Recognize Share Files From Windows

Sep 20, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 in my laptop and at the same time I have Windows 7 (partitioned disk). I use mostly Ubuntu, but I need windows for some stuff. I want to share files of windows with Ubuntu (is weird but when I installed Ubuntu never gave me the option "share files from windows", I dunno why). Anyway, I can see the disk in Ubuntu, and I can see the folder /Documents and settings/, that creates windows by default with my files. However, the route is too long to arrive there from Ubuntu using the Terminal.

I created a shadow link using lndir to arrive to my files easier. It works fine, however, sometimes when I go to the files using this route, these are lightened in red, and when I try to enter to one of these folders, the system doesn't recognize it. After a while, these are in blue and I can go in them. Why it is happening?. What I did Is the "correct" way to do it?.
