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?
Re: Since update I can not access add/remove, downloads, ...
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.

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.
Ubuntu is an open source operating system. With a Linux based system, there is no worry of gaining a virus, as well as all the security needed is built in from out of the box. With Microsoft Windows, you would need to worry about virus, hackers, etc. In a world where most of the security vulnerabilities are coming from third-party applications, Windows and Mac machines are at significant risk because they run lots of these apps and those apps aren't always updated automatically, which leaves the machines open to attacks. Again, to be clear, both Microsoft and Apple have comprehensive updating systems for their software - both the OS as well as company apps that run on top of the OS. The problem is with the software (programs, extensions, and plug-ins) from other vendors and the inconsistent methods they use for updating their code to protect against known flaws. With Ubuntu, there's one comprehensive software updating system. This is possible because Ubuntu has a centralized repository of applicationsand the only third-party applications that make it into the main repository are the ones that have been tested by Canonical (the company that produces Ubuntu) and are proven to work with the OS. This means that the Ubuntu main repository doesn't always have the very latest version of Firefox, for example, but you can be sure that the one it does have will typically install easy, work smoothly, and remain updated automatically. And, while iPhone and Android have a mix of free apps and paid apps, the apps in the Ubuntu Software Center are nearly all open source and free of charge. Like iPhone and Android, you have to sort through a fair amount of chaff in order to get to the wheat, but it's still a terrific 21st century computing experience. Both Windows and Mac need to learn from the app experience that is driving the mobile device market. Ubuntu has already beaten them to the punch.
If you add that to the fact that Ubuntu does a better job with software updates (a big security boost), then Ubuntu becomes a much more viable alternative for modern PC users, especially those who access most of their services and enterprise apps via a Web browser.
Whilst most conventional operating systems you must pay for, or come free with some hardware. It is very easy to download some operating systems that are linx based.
I would suggest downloading the latest version of ubuntu from this link:
You need to add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list file or
you need to make sure you have enabled Universe and multiverse
repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list file
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Make sure you have the following two lines save and exit your file
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy universe multiverse
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy universe multiverse
Now you need to run the following command to update the source list
sudo apt-get update
Install mplayer using the following command
sudo apt-get install mplayer
if you want to open mplayer just type
You can Open from Applications—>Sound&Video—> Mplayer Movie Player Install libdvdcss2 and w32 video codecs in Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron)
Support for WMV, RealMedia and other formats has been bundled into
the w32codecs package. This package is not available from the Ubuntu
repositories due to licensing and legal restrictions.
For Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) Users run the following command
sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
Then, add the GPG Key using the following commands
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring
sudo apt-get update For i386 Users install Codecs using the following command
sudo apt-get install w32codecs libdvdcss2 For amd64 Users install Codecs using the following command
sudo apt-get install w64codecs libdvdcss2
Using above download locations you can install most of the mutimedia codecs for ubuntu. Mplayer Plugin for Firefox
If you want to install Mplayer with plug-in for Mozilla Firefox run the following command
