How can I connect the USB Bluetooth bugs in Ubuntu 8.10?

USB and Bluetooth connectivity errors in Ubuntu 8.10 are the result of two different errors. If you are running KDE, you have a patch on their Bluetooth connectivity problems (see Resources) to download correct. USB connection errors are the result of a bug in the current version of the Linux kernel. Run "apt-get package manager to upgrade the kernel is usually the fastest and most trouble-free. After the upgrade, the system restarts.


1. Open a copy of the console when running a graphical user interface (GUI).


2. Type "apt-get update" and press "Enter".


3. Type "apt-get upgrade" and press "Enter". The window that appears available updates. Find anything related to the kernel that "n" followed by pressing "Enter".


4. Type "apt-get install package-name" where "package name" is the updated version of the kernel. Press Enter. Confirm that you have to install the update by typing "Y" and press "Enter". Once the upgrade is complete, restart your computer.

Can I get My Computer icon in Ubuntu 11.10


There is no My computer icon in KDE.
On the task bar click the K with the Gear. Explore the Favorites menu. Make sure that the Dolphin file explorer is there. By clicking Dolphin your Home folder will open.
You can also add a widget on the desktop. Point to some empty space on the desktop. Right click the mouse button then select Add widgets. At the bottom of the screen some windows open. In the categories, look for file sytem. Choose and enter. A widget of your home will be displayed.

One advice. I think you should run the Synaptic Package. Manager to make sure you get all necessary packages for KDE. In the QuickFilter text area enter KDE. All packages that relate to KDE will be displayed. Explore to see if there is something you need that was not installed.
Select all the packages you want. Any package required for the one you selected will be chosen for installation.

I'm new to ubuntu and I wanted to know if I could load kubuntu over ubuntu and keep all the features that come with ubuntu or will it wipe it out. I also have edubuntu loaded on it for my kids and don't want to lose any of that.


Kbuntu will completely overwirte ubuntu. you could try though to make another partition to install it to. kbuntu is the one with the KDE inerface so it will be totally different the regualr gnome ubuntu.

keep getting error message re: KDE and 'dcopserver'


I am not 100% sure, but I remember having a similar problem once. The reason is that root stopped owning a couple of ./kde files, so that a user had not correct access to the files.
Open a terminal and type:
myusername@ubuntu:~$ sudo chown myusername:myusername /home/myusername/.*
Password:

Replace "myusername" with your username. The password asked will be root's password (which might be the same as yours.)

software/drivers


No driver is neccessary. When you plug the camera into the USB port, Ubuntu should automatically mount the camera. If not, Open a command prompt and type the following command and post the output here:

dmesg | tail

You say you're running Ubuntu/Kubuntu. Which on are you using? Kubuntu uses the KDE desktop rather than GNOME, the default for Ubuntu. The user interface is different.

If the camera is mounted as it should be, it would be mounted under /media (Usually /media/disk), and that directory would contain all your pictures.
