    System now freezes after attempt to install a game.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ga...tuGames#Nexuiz

    Hello.

    is the abovE NEXUIZ game spam / hack or something ?

    I installed / ran it just now, & it completely froze my system.

    i have 2 issues

    1) How do turn the volume Off (or down ?).

    when i activated / started the game, it looked quiite good, however the volume was loud.

    My curser was RESTRICTED to that screen - i could not go to the sound part of my computer to turn the sound down.


    2) How do i QUIT / STOP / END the game. (my curser was restricted to that screen - could not go to the left side menu to "quit" the game.)

    Help. My PC freezes.

    Hello.

    yesterday I tried this, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2221652. And ever since then my PC freezes.

    im typing on my ipad now.

    I've removed the programme last night, but had to reboot my PC a number of times today.

    can anyone advise a possible solution for general freezing ?

    Further -I can move my mouse to other areas of the screen, but if I click on anything it doesn't do anything, or takes 10 + minutes or so to change. I have rebooted several times today.

    load averages 1, 5, 15 minutes - 0.00, 0.01, 0.05

    Did you check your system for viruses? Something might be using your resources.

    Re: System now freezes after attempt to install a game.

    Here's the one for Bitdefender.

    Add the repository by going to System - Administration - Software Sources, click on the 'Other Software' (previously 'Third Party Software') tab. Now click on 'Add' and enter.

    Code:
    deb http://download.bitdefender.com/repos/deb/ bitdefender non-free
    Code:
    wget http://download.bitdefender.com/repos/deb/bd.key.asc
    sudo apt-key add bd.key.asc
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install bitdefender-scanner-gui
    Once complete you now need to log out and log back in again. a menu shortcut will be generated (Applications - System Tools - BitDefender Scanner).

    Before running the scanner it's probably best to install the latest virus/malware signatures by clicking on the 'Update' button.

    License

    BitDefender comes with a standard 30 day free license, when first installed. It is free for private and personal use - the license can be extended to one year by requesting a new license key from http://www.bitdefender.com/site/Prod...cannerLicense/ For all business use a paid for license is required.

    No command 'deb' find.
    is there a command to install 'deb' ? I've googled and found instructions on install deb files, but not deb itself.

    Second thought you can delete the FireFox directory and then reinstall FireFox again using Software Center or Synaptic Package Manager.
