Question about Canonical Ltd. Ubuntu

1 Answer

Since update I can not access add/remove, downloads, Firefox, or help on ubuntu OS.

I have Hardy Heron. Since update, add/remove, Firefox, and help will begin to run as seen in tool bar, but before the page can load, the application just goes away. I am writing this from my Firefox in my portable apps. I have tried to download to my desktop, but the download page stays blank. I cannot seem to get a download of Firefox onto my computer. What do you think I could do next??? Have you seen this before?

I have never heard of this til now. It might be a stuck package? You can try booting into recovery mode by hitting the esc key at boot time and selecting the top line that ends in "recovery mode" then af the next menu select "fix broken packages". Did you have Firefox 2 and 3 installed or just one of them? Is Firefox running in gnome system monitor after you start it and maybe just not showing the window? The only other thing I can think of to try would be to make a new user and log into that user and try it.

Install Google Chrome on Ubuntu


This is a guide to help you install Google Chrome on Ubuntu Hardy Heron, there are other ways, but this is the one that works for me, hope it will help you.

Ready to give it a shoot?

Step 1 - Update WINE
In order for the Chrome installation on Ubuntu to be successful you have to update your WINE version to 1.1.4.
Type (or copy) this in to your command line -
wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
sudo apt-get update


Step 2 – Get all necessary software

Winetricks is a script that will allow you to get all the necessary software you need for this installation.
The last command below will install Firefox into WINE, this is needed for the third step.

wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
mv winetricks /usr/sbin/
winetricks riched20 riched30 flash msxml3 corefonts firefox

Install Firefox into WINE.


Step 3 - Installing Chrome

Once you have installed Firefox into WINE, launch Firefox in WINE and go to - http://www.google.com/chrome/
Download and run Chrome setup.


Step 4 – Launch Google Chrome

Once the download and install are complete, type this command to launch Chrome -

wine “$HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/$USER/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/chrome.exe” –no-sandbox –new-http

Hope this worked for you and you can use Google Chrome off of you Ubuntu system.

Using Ubuntu Hardy Heron - used to work fine, now it authenticates ok but cannot obtain an IP address. problem only started a couple of weeks ago. Previously in use for 12 months or so no problem. tried...


Do you have any other devices that are able to get an IP address? (Trying to see if it is the notebook or router).

If you assign the notebook a static IP can you access the network and Internet?

Want to install network printer


If you're connected to the network, and the printer is installed and shared from a server - which is the ideal way of doing it, then you should just have to go to the "add printer" wizard, select "network Printer", then browse your network for it, and connect. If it's not, then go to canon's website and download the driver's and install locally on your laptop using tcp/ip port and proper Ip address.

Re: JW199D and Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04


Do you get these lines when you're using any other OS on the machine?

You can download a Live CD for different distros and see if you get similar random lines. www.distrowatch.com is a great source for these.

The other culprits are loose VGA cable connection to your monitor, or loose fitting card on the motherboard (unless it's built in).

If you can't get the lines to go away, then you may want to invoke the 3-year warranty on the JW199D.

I've tried to install ubuntu+xubuntu on i686 duron 900? 256ram-


Not exactly sure what you are saying... but you DO have a Duron 700? That is 32-bit. No x64 for you!

If that is not what you're saying. You are saying that you received an Xubuntu alternate distro from Ubuntu? Ubuntu comes in prepackaged distributions for i686 (i386, i486)-32bit and x64-64bit.

You can download the Xubuntu for free at
http://www.xubuntu.org/get

Select the Hardy Heron i686 version. When you install, the installer "should" select the best kernel for your system.
