  1. [ubuntu] Re: Only blank desktop and cursor after installation

    What I think you may be running into is that the opengl components may be disabled. You may want to download the 'CompizConfig Settings Manager' and use that to restore the defaults under Preferences...
  2. Re: Installing Ubuntu over Windows 7, recovery partition

    I had a similar situation, and to be honest, I found out that the best way is to probably just use another hard drive for the linux install and keep Windows on its own disk. A bit of a pain to swap...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: can not login even with correct password

    one thing to keep in mind is that 'su' and 'sudo' are lowercase commands, not uppercase. To change users, I have usually used 'sudo su - <username>, although I have not tried it as root. I usually...

    [lubuntu] Re: Flash videos won't play.

    you can try the partners repository above and "adobe-flashplugin" see if that works, although a "flashplugin-installer" should also be available in the "multiverse" repository. Its been a while for...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Login Screen still shows after login.

    Not the same exact issue that i encoutered, but if you are running ATI graphics, you'll want to update the latest ATI linux drivers. 13.4, I believe. The login screen is actually the lightdm service,...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Interrupted upgrade left package errors

    i had a partial upgrade to 13.04, when it hung during the kernel modules section. I was able to continue with the rest of the installation by re-running the Software Updater utility, and an option...

    [lubuntu] Re: Flash videos won't play.

    i usually use the version at the official adobe site. They won't be updating it anymore, but still, it is fairly recent. Plus, it can play the DRM hulu episodes as well, but requires the HAL package...

    Re: Collage Laptop Suggestions

    one thing to keep in mind is that many of the brand-name laptops such as Dell, Lenovo may also be compatible with Ubuntu as well. Unfortunately, you won't be getting a discount without an OS (as they...
  11. [xubuntu] Re: FGLRX trouble with 13.04 and Mobility Radeon HD 4225/4250

    I could be wrong, but this sounds like the /home/<user>/.Xauthority issue. Deleting the .Xauthority file would allow it be regenerated.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: VirtualBox how to mount windows 7 from CD/DVD?

    this is just a quick reply, but the windows 7 dvd probably has nothing to do with why the VM is not running. It seems like the vboxdrv module isn't loaded, which could be resolved using the "sudo...

    [ubuntu] Re: web cAm not working

    I think I had a similar issue a few months back, and what could be happening is that your webcam may be using /dev/video1 or something similar. I think I had ultimately solved it by moving / renaming...

    Re: Never Going Back to Windows

    There is nothing wrong with going to Linux, but I would not view it as exclusionary. Meaning that it is possible to be both Linux and MS Windows clubs, and not be a pariah in either just for being a...

    Re: My Windows 7 challenge

    I agree.

    That is really all I have to say. Some folks are stuck on the ideology (ie - the Linux / open-source ideology), but I have found Windows 7 to be a fairly decent OS.

    [ubuntu] Re: No ipv6 default route after reboot

    if you are using the network connections / network manager applet, there is a section for IPv6 that may of help. Otherwise, from the command line, you may be able to add an entry in...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 continually asks for login credentials.

    i think there is some confusion. The login via console method and home directory .Xauthority move / rename is referring to the Ubuntu login. My sense, unless incorrect, is that the "login and...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: My Desktop Background is White (and it shouldn't be)

    you've probably tried this already, but it may be worth a shot to see if the same problem occurs with other images set as the wallpaper. It may be something specific to the wallpaper image that you...

    [ubuntu] Re: Need help with Apache

    i'm going to say that is the DirectoryIndex parameter in the httpd.conf file. I don't recall exactly where ubuntu stores it (/etc/httpd/conf, most likely, but it could be under /etc/apache2). Anyway,...

    you may want to run 'lspci | grep VGA instead.

  22. [ubuntu] Re: Latest 12.10 update Removed Screen Resolution
