I have a laptop hooked up to a monitor I can't close my lid
how to enable close lid DO NOTHING.

I can';t help with the exact command, as I'm running Oneiric, but power settings menu item is under system


I am also trying to ugrade to 11.04 currently have 10.10 keeps failing saying need 10.04tls what does that mean

Press Alt-F2 and type:


update-manager -d

You can map the drive you want to automagically mount in /etc/fstab, the command should look something like this:


//willy/media/music /media/music smbfs auto,username=,password=,uid=1000,umask=000,user 0 0

//willy/media/music = the share name on the server
/media music = the mount point on the client
smbfs = file system type
username and password = should be self evident

thanks
I go through update I think it fails at file 75.

In the power settings there is no option to do nothing
just suspend,blank monitor, or shutdown

Whe I map the drive if I reboot it is no longer there..

To enable close lid do nothing:

System > Preferences > Power Management
That will bring you to those settings.


Are you trying to upgrade through update manager? You could try going to Synaptic Package manager, looking up the file it's looking for. Could you give the exact file name?
Cariboo probably knows more about this than me.

Try grabbing the top of the lid with one hand and pulling towards you. It should close.

Power management must be missing a setting if you can't choose for it to ignore laptop lid closing.
