Until yesterday, my Audiophile sound card was working beautifully. I ran the latest update, and now it doesn't show up under Sound Preferences. (When I plugged in a USB headset, that appeared under Sound Preferences and worked just fine.)
So the only experience I have with Linux is all from Ubuntu, and I just spontaneously decided that I needed a change...two days later my triple boot Macbook Pro got slimmed down to a dual boot OSX/OpenSUSE 11.2 machine. But there are some general problems, and I have absolutely no idea how to solve them. First, wireless isn't recognized at all...there isn't even a space for wireless connections. Second, I haven't been able to get compiz to work yet, and I can only suspect that the system doesn't recognize my video card, or the driver isn't installed. Yet again, no idea how to fix this.
i bought a new laptopt Gateway, core i3, intel video card. I've tested ubuntu and mandriva without good video results. I have installed Fedora 12, i'm using an external lcd samsung screen on the vga port, it works fine. My display properties shows two screen as well as the correct resolutions...the problem it that i can't use my latopt screen, i have tried different resolutions..but nothing. I can't use mi laptopt without an external screen.Even if i boot without my external screen, my laptopt screen goes black.
Does anyone know an Ubuntu 10.10 compatible video capture card that has composite connections for video and audio (yellow, red and white)? It must be external and do its own processing so it doesn't use the computer's own CPU. I intend to capture a live stream and have the Ubuntu PC serve it to other computers. I may use VLC or MythTV. I have looked on various related sites but finding a compatible USB one which does its own decoding is hard to find.
i installed Fedora 12 on an external hard drive. Everything went fine with the installation and it was working perfectly until i tried to install my video card drivers. I have done this many times before and it has worked. I have an ATI card. Anyway after installing the driver i rebooted and now when it starts it show the loading bar on the bottom but then nothing happens its just a black screen!. The worst part is that when i go into windows and my external is plugged in windows wont read it and i have very valuable data on it. I go into disk management and it shows up but windows says that its empty. which is obviously not true because Fedora starts to boot. I really just want Fedora off my external and for windows to read my external with all the files still on it. Is there a way to get by that blank screen?
I have been waiting on installing ubuntu on my mid 2010 MBP 15' for a while now. I was wondering if the dynamic GPU switching was supported yet. Does Ubuntu recognize the intel card and can I use it over the nVidia card?
I'm trying to restore my laptop through the Ubuntu 10.04 Live CD. A while ago, Windows 7 died. I've tried everything possible to make it work again to no avail. At first I gave up on recovering my files and proceeded to formatting it, but that didn't work either, although it would boot from the CD, it would get stuck. It's as if the HDD couldn't be accessed.
After trying almost every version of Windows available, I decided to give Ubuntu a shot. I have used Ubuntu before and I thought maybe I could use the Live CD to see whether I could access the HD or not and, if not, claim the warranty (I bought the computer 4 months ago). I downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 and booted from it and was able to access all my files.
I wanted to move my files to an external HDD through the USB, but I plugged it in and nothing happened, no icon appeared on the desktop or on the Computer directory. I plugged in a normal USB flash drive, and no icon appeared. The funny thing is that the USB led lit up, so I knew it was connected to the computer.
I thought maybe Ubuntu wasn't mounting the drives and that I had to do it manually, so I ran both the lsusb and fdisk -l commands on the terminal with both drives plugged in and neither of them appeared listed. I even opened the message log to see if there was some reaction when I plugged it in, but nothing worked. :S
I restarted the computer and opened the BIOS to see whether the USB drive was enabled, as I had previously disabled some options trying to restore Windows, but the external HDD was being recognized by the computer; on the boot list it showed the name and serial of the drive, so that wasn't it.
I downloaded previous versions of Ubuntu, thinking maybe it had something to do with that (although I know it shouldn't), and the same thing happened: I could access the internal HDD but the external drives weren't being recognized.
I've browsed through the forums, going over the same procedures as other people with the same problem, but nothing works for me and now that I know that my files are safe, I don't want to format it anymore before saving at least the most important ones ><
I think I have 2 options before I run out of ideas. I could use GParted or Partition Editor from the Live CD to resize the partition to make enough space to install Ubuntu on my computer (I was thinking of doing it, anyway) and then fix everything from there instead of from the Live CD (if that changes anything), but I'm afraid that the files in the partition could become corrupted or damaged, and I don't want that. The other option would be to install Ubuntu on the external HDD and boot from it, as it WOULD HAVE to recognize it.
I want to know if there is any way to solve it before resorting to the latter option, as the HDD is not mine and I don't feel right partitioning it.
i have an Acer Aspire 9420 with gentoo installed and a 2.6.38-r3 kernel.Since a few months i have decided to boot from an USB external HDD WD scorpio Blue 750go (with USB adapter) instead of the internal HDD.Yesterday evening during my gnome session activity i had a black screen with a cursor and nothing can respond anymore. I tried an hard reboot but my bios does not detect my USB Disk either.So i boot from a liveDVD to check what is the problem?
If I take out the existing video card and put in another one of a different type (but not a different brand), how does Ubuntu behave? I know what Windows typically does. Windows starts up the screen using a default video driver which is at least 1024 by 768 and then asks you what this new bit of hardware is and asks where the drivers are. I'm pretty sure Ubuntu has default drivers of its own, but I don't know what their resolution is.
I recently bought a video card for my pc. I had it running pretty nicely on Ubuntu10.10, I started windows and later restarted and after that it wouldn't get past the Graphic cards bios. this is rather odd isn't it? I suspect it maybe dead or that my motherboard bios is stuffed but i reset that too and it still wont go.. The specs are Pentium4 Proccesor 1gb ram motherboard 661gx-m7 Nvidia GeForce FX5200 DDr128mb
Got a bit of a problem where xorg can't start kdm. I pulled out a dying AGP card to try and switch to onboard video, and I think the previous configuration is gumming up the works.I've been running this system for quite a while, as you'll be able to tell from the version numbers.Would like to avoid having to transport my Amarok databases to a new server. I make heavy use of the song ratings and whenever I try to transport the database from the old system to a fresh build I have to spend hours relearning sql commands.Any ideas how to either fix the resolutions on the ATI or (preferably) get KDE to start on the onboard graphics?
My video card developed problems, so I followed the suggestion in this thread:
Quote: Boot into recovery mode, then choose root, for a command prompt and enter Code: dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
but my ubuntu 10.04 32-bit system still won't boot. Shortly after the ubuntu logo comes up, before the login, my screen goes black and there is no more video signal. What else can I do to reset the video configuration? The card only has this info on it: I could put the card back in the system, reboot, and then pre-configure the system to drop to the intel 865G on-board video, but the msi card has intermittent problems and will spontaneously re-boot several times during the first ten minutes of turning on the system.
My system: Pentium 4 3.6 GHz, 3 Gb DDR ram, GeForce 210 video card, Ubuntu 10.04.
I have previously used Cinelerra-cv (on Karmic) and recently Openshot (on Lucid) with not much trouble. I have been sampling other video editors (Kdenlive, avidemux, kino etc). Now I have my video card crashing whichever I use, mainly when trying to load clips. I have disabled Compiz, uninstalled all video editors and then reinstalled one at a time. I still get early video crashes whichever I try.
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on an older Compaq Evo D310. When I do a search of my video card I get "01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 Pro Ultra TF", which is the integrated card on the motherboard, but I'm actually using an Nvidia GeForce 2 MX 400. At least that's the card my VGA monitor is connected to. How do I get Ubuntu to recognize the Nvidia card? I'd like to try installing an nvidia legacy driver for it to boost performance. Thanks.
i just installed 10.04 and everything works fine except that it does not recognize my external cd/dvd rom and my usb flash drives, I already found some threads related to this and they that talk about going to config editor and activating these options: media_auto_run and automount_open.
Moving this to new topic, since it's no longer under wireless connectivity issues. [Noob Warning] I was having trouble getting Ubuntu to recognize my wireless card, as I have changed from the 3965 that came in my computer to the 4965, which added increased range and G band. Anyway, I read one of the threads on here, and this was the advice given:

Today I deleted Windows on my Dell Latitude D610 and instead installed Ubuntu 10.04 on it (I had a cd with 10.04 on it from when I installed it on my desktop a year ago). Everything runs fine except I can't get the wifi to work, and it won't recognize the driver either, actually it doesn't recognize any drivers.
I've been playing around with Damn Small Linux 4.4.10 on my Dell Inspiron 3000 laptop for quite a while now, and this is the first time I've been downright stumped. To make a long story short, I'm trying to play 480p video on a machine with a 233 MHz Pentium processor, 112 MB of ram, and a Neomagic MagicGraph 128XD graphics card (NM2160). Crazy? Maybe, but I don't think so. I'm using MPlayer set to Xv mode with the XFree86 4.3.0 server, and so far, I've been able to get it to play 360p mpegs with minimal stuttering. However, MPlayer crashes with 480p. This is because the 128XD only has 2 MB of memory, which, after the 1024x768x16 screen takes its share, doesn't leave enough room for a 640x480 overlay.
The creators of MPlayer are aware of this limitation, and suggest adding the following line to my XF86Config file: Option "OverlayMem" "829440"
As I understand it, this is supposed to extend the video card's frame buffer into system memory, thus allowing the higher resolution video to play. However, it doesn't work, based on this output from my XFree86 log file: cannot reserve 829440 bytes for overlay...
Some other suspicious-looking lines from the log file:
I have a problem with recognising my mobile phone's memory card in Ubuntu 9.10. When I plug the phone in it starts the mass storage mode, but nothing happens in the PC. I suspect that I may have deleted phone's icon from the desktop, and I don't know how to bring it back. Also the memory card doesn't appear anywhere: nor in the Places tab, nor in Media folder.The phone is Samsung U900 Soul.
I cannot get the restricted Nvidia drivers or the Nouveau drivers to work completely. If the Nouveau drivers are being used (after an "apt-get purge nvidia-*"), the text mode seems to work ok, but the X nouveau driver acts as if it cannot recognize the card. The only way I can get into X is to make sure I have the "nv" driver in the xorg.conf. I can then get into X normally.
If I install nvidia-current, the machine will just lock up at the splash screen. The Xorg.0.log file is zero bytes. I've checked and installing nvidia-current properly blacklists the nouveau drivers and I see no evidence in the messages file that the nouveau drivers tried to load in text mode. In fact, it shows the nvidia driver loading for console mode. I've tried the nouveau.modeset=0 kernel option as well, but that doesn't do anything. This is a fairly new nvidia card, maybe only a couple months old. I think it's been out for quite some time though. But it was working fine under Karmic with the restricted drivers. I really want to get this working as I need full support of the video card.
I had Karmic a while back, but i got rid of it becasue of my Bcm4312 Wireless Card would not recognize the STA driver, or bcm43xx.In that time i learned a bit of command line stuff. anyways now that I have my internet working, I was just wondering What I could do with ubuntu. I am interested in the command line and Programming. Where could I learn more about the 2 subjects?
I have a sandisk sd card with 3 partitions two ext2 and one fat 32 partition for some reson Ubuntu only automounts two ext2 partitions. I've tried inserting another card with only one fat32 partition and the system doesn't mount it. Both cards are visible in gparted byt not in "Places" menu.
I'm running Joli Cloud 1.2 on my HP dm1z netbook and for some reason, it doesn't seem to recognize my wireless card. Because the HP dm1z has no ethernet port, I had to use a USB adapter to connect to the internet.
i'm run'n knoppix 6.5 (i think) from a usb stick. under 'ifconfig' it finds 'eth0', but when i put in 'iwconfig eth0' it says: 'eth0 no wireless extensions'. i've tried other linux live cd's but to no avail...interestinly enough, when i run a linux (ubuntu) live cd on my virtual pc it hooks up(?..i figure bcuz its reading from da virtual ethernet?) further more, i researched it to the conclusion that the driver is not being detected. i tried ndiswrapper (under 'puppy') but tht didnt work either ( i've downloaded the lastes version of ndiswrapper and i plan on trying it again w/ the installation disk of the wireless card). however, even in my research i've seen there seem to be a difficulty in getting this particular driver to work? (netgear wg311v3 - wireless g pci adapter) how i can over come this problem? i'm kinda new @ linux, but i like the challenge. it doesnt matter wat linux system (the responder) i'll download it. but i'm really trying to get 1 online cuz i have to learn how to work the packaging systems.
