How to reset admin password with the cmd when you are a standard user


What's your operating system? After logging in as standard user, you have insufficient privileges to change the admin password via cmd. You need to boot with Windows install media, and replace sethc.exe with cmd.exe. When rebooting to the login screen, you can launch a command prompt and reset your password there.

Ubuntu 9.10 comes with GDM
(GNOME Display Manager) a graphical login program.
This is default login manager in Ubuntu 9.10.

If you, have wish, to login automatically in Ubuntu
instead of the manual login
that you choose in the installation process, we have the new possibility.

Configure GDM to auto login a specific user:

(1.A)
Applications> Accessories> Terminal
When you open this copy it (when you ask for your password, type):
gksu gedit /etc/gdm/custom.conf

Enter the configuration values that you want to override:
AutomaticLoginEnable=true
AutomaticLogin=laikexpert

(Save changes and close custom.conf)

(1.B)
Reboot your system, and you’re automatically logged in to Ubuntu.

Ubuntu problems


Download the free edition of EasyBCD (it's boot-up software) and install it in 'C' -Windows. Run EasyBCD... it's very straightforward. It will identify the operating systems on your computer ... choose 'use EasyBCD boot loader' (or similar) and save the changes.

It sounds as though you have somehow lost the boot loader for Ubuntu (it's in C - Windows) when there was an update, which is quite common ..

Using EasyBCD will return your computer to dual-boot

My FUJITSU SIEMENS AMILO PA 1538 screen comes black ? HELP


Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor and see if all is working Ok with that, if it is, then you may need to get the laptop display serviced - if it does the same on the external display, then try booting the laptop from a CD or DVD such as an OS install CD (Windows or Linux) or a boot utility CD such as Hiren's Boot CD - this will allow you to test whether the problem lays with your installed operating system or with the hardware. . . .
Note: do not go any further than the initial displays if using an OS install CD unless you are using a Linux Live boot CD which will not destroy your installed operating system. . . .See http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ to download a copy of Hiren's Boot CD to burn to a CD. . . .See http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download to download a copy of a Ubuntu (Linux) Live CD.

I do not like Ubuntu 11.10 can I go back to Ubuntu 10.10


Unfortunately, there is no "downgrade" path. The only way around it, is to re-install the version you want only after formatting your hard drive. Otherwise if it is only the desktop look that you are after, there are ways to get it to look and act like that of 10.10.
To get the classic Ubuntu interface:
First click the little screen icon top right.
Click System Settings at the bottom.
Then on the left hand side of the Control Center click System
Then Click Login Screen
Then click Unlock and put your password in.
At the bottom you can select Ubuntu Classic as your default session.
Close it and reboot.
Enjoy!!

After installing ubuntu i get a blank screen saying error


I think, this problem happened because you are installing Ubuntu from the ISO image on your physical hard drive.

Here is the way around this problem. when you get to the option to unstall Ubuntu, press F4 and choose Safe graphics mode. then choose the first option on the menu:Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer.

If you still get the same problem do this:
At the prompt, press F4 and select "Safe graphics mode".
then press F6.
Modify the following boot line:
"Boot Options seed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper initrd=/casper/initrd.gz quiet splash -" Delete the part that says "quiet splash "" -" and replace it with "vga=791 noreplace-paravirt"

That will make Ubuntu boot onto the GUI. After logging into Ubuntu Interface you should be able to see an installation folder on the desktop:

Click on the Install folder. The installation wizard should come up:

Select the language and click Forward. Next Choose your location:

Choose your city, and click Forward. Don't worry if the time zone is not OK, you can change that later when you login to Ubuntu.
Next, you will need to choose your Keyboard layout, if you are in the US, mostly all your options will be the default. If you are not in the US, choose your settings accordingly. Click Forward.

Next, you will need to prepare the disk space, remember that you chose to use 10 GB of hard disk space for this virtual machine, so select the default option, Guided "" use the entire disk.

DSL does not contain all of the drivers needed for the computer to work well. Try Gentoo linux, or Arch linux.

Trying to run ubuntu


It sounds like Ubuntu chose a screen resolution that your monitor doesn't support. For the sake of sanity, I would a reboot and then try booting to Windows to ensure that what camone311 suggests happened isn't so -- I doubt it, as the install process is more involved than just 1 click - there are SEVERAL variables (time, date, username, passwords, how much of the hard drive to use, etc) that have to be set before anything is written to the hard drive.

If you're able to boot to Windows, then I would boot back to the CD and give it another go. At the menu where it says Try Ubuntu... there's an option to change the graphics modes - I would try safe graphics mode or VESA to see if that fixes the black screen problems that you were having.
