Hi There !!

Thank you for writing to fixya.com

Cause: You are unable to use wireless in Ubuntu, The reason would be the drivers & configuration settings.

Solution: I am attaching a link, which is a trump card for all linux system to get wireless back up and running. Follow the steps religiously & you will be all-right:

The softphone does not detect audio hardware.Depending on the softphone you may need to choose in settings the hardware device for input/output, ensure you have done so.
If that does not work, check speakers and mic installation in Ubuntu.

it's your graphics card not the monitor that often has proprietary drivers to drive compiz and other effects.

If this is not a laptop, then it is easy to interchange.

Nvidia is one such vendor that supplies special drivers for Ubuntu

Installed ubuntu 9.10 now can't boot XP. Black


Now that you have installed ubuntu which is linux did you make your pc able to do dual boot. It is possible you have overwriten some important files like master boot record while doing ubuntu installation. Most times blinking cursor means no hard drive or operating system. you can try poping in XP cd and try to do recovery if you have it. Also easiest would be if you could boot into safe mode and try to fix the issue by replacing missing or corrupt files.

Wireless Card not working in Ubuntu 9


I had the same problem on my Acer Aspire 5920G, I have Intel wi-fi tho. Kernel update fixed it, but be careful when updating kernels. The network part of it can be updated separately. Check ubuntu forums about how to update kernel.

I have just installed my first dual boot XP and Ubuntu on my old desktop. The floppy drive is recognised on XP but not on Ubuntu - What do I need to do to use it under Ubuntu 8 ?


Here are the steps to follow:

1. Click on "Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal".
2. In the terminal type "gksudo gedit" and enter the system password (you created this when installed Ubuntu). This will enable you to temporarily edit the "modules" file which is usually a read-only system file.
3. Click "Places -> Computer".
4. Click on "Filesystem".
5. Open up the directory (folder) called "Modules". It is the grey icon nearer the bottom of the list (you have to move the navigation bar down).
6. The file "Modules" should open in the "gedit" program.
7. It should look something like this:

# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

fuse
lp

8. Now add the word "floppy" to the bottom of the file. It will now look like this:

# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

fuse
lp
floppy

9. Now save the file by pressing pressing the "save" icon.
10. Exit the "gedit" program.
11. Now restart ubunutu (reboot the computer).
12. After reboot is complete, the floppy icon should be found under "Places" on the panel. Click on it to open a floppy. Remember to "unmount volume" when you remove or change the floppy. Linux will not let you change floppies like windows by just popping it out.

Hope this helps!

USB mouse won't work under XP in a dual boot Ubuntu GRUB 1.5


It has the latest mouse driver (logitech setpoint 4.0). Before installing Ubuntu the setup worked w/ SUSE/XP using GRUB dual boot. After installing Ubuntu XP does not see the usb mouse. Even Logitech setpoint does not have the mouse setup/configuration option. It appears that at boot it does not recognize the mouse or disables it. The BIOS has the usb keyboard and mouse enabled. Currently, I have two mices one for xp and either mouse will work under Ubuntu.
