Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/thunderbird/thunderbird-locale-en-gb_31.0+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_all.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.91.13 80]


The file you are looking for does not exist on the server the correct file is http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/thunderbird/thunderbird-locale-en-gb_31.2.0+build2-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_all.deb

I did notice that there is a newer version available and it is located here http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/thunderbird/thunderbird-locale-en-gb_31.2.0+build2-0ubuntu0.14.10.1_all.deb

If in the future you run into this problem here is an easy way to find what you are looking for. In the hyperlink delete the file name that failed from the hyperlink to go to the level of the repository that houses that file, in your case that would be http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/thunderbird/ this will show you list of files available, scroll down tell you find the file you are looking for and select it to download. Although the hyperlink is an http link it is an ftp site which has a directory structural you normally can get to find the file you are looking for. Some sites restrict the ability to browse the directory but most allow you to do this.

How to change to a different date in advanced booting options


To change your system date through Advanced Booting options, you first need to enter BIOS setup menu of your system. To enter BIOS setup menu and to change your system date, you can follow the instructions below:
1.Boot your system and enter BIOS setup menu using the designated key. Though the key to enter BIOS may vary depending upon the computer manufacturer, usually keys like Delete, F12, F10, and F2 are designated to enable a user to enter BIOS setup. To know how to identify the key your system is designated to enter BIOS setup, you can refer to the image under "Method 1 of 3: Enter the BIOS" section on the following webpage:
Important: Following link is of a third-party website. We recommend you to update your security software thoroughly before clicking on the link.
http://www.wikihow.com/Change-Computer-BIOS-Settings

2.As soon as you identify the BIOS setup key, strike it rapidly and repeatedly (while the booting is on) till the time you enter BIOS setup menu. You may get just a few seconds to do this. If you are not able to enter BIOS setup menu by pressing the key repeatedly, reboot your system and follow the same steps again to enter BIOS setup menu.
Note: BIOS menu do not support mouse input. Hence, you will have to navigate through the menu using the arrow keys on your keyboard.
3.Once you enter BIOS setup menu, you can change the date of your system by going to "System Date" option. This option is generally located in the "Main" section of the menu.
Important: The layout of BIOS menu varies from manufacturer to manufacturer but most of them share a few common settings. If you are not able to detect "System Date" option in the "Main" section of the menu, you may need to look into other sections to locate the option.
To get a pictorial explanation of the above steps, you can refer to the following link:

Hope this will resolve your issue.

I am using ubuntu 10.04,windows xp operating systems. i have creative 5.1 vx sound card. my problem is sound card is working vey good in XP. white noise is coming from spekers when i am using ubuntu...


Hello,
Please try switching just to Analog Stereo Duplex mode only. When you do this, the linux kernel will only load the ALSA(Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) drivers for the Audio Device, which works in all cases. If that fails, go to System>Preferences>Main Menu and enable the Multimedia System Selection menu.When enabled, select ALSA Mixer default device ONLY.
Have a great day ahead. All the best.
Regards,

Am pulling my hair out. I'm a newbie to Linux but keen to get into it. Installed 9.10 as a dual boot alongside XP and after problems with grub, which I have re-mounted, I get to the OS choice page. XP...


Backup, Repairing and Reinstalling GRUB
  • To make a backup a copy of the existing menu.lst file use: cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/menu.lst.oldYou can try re-installing the grub using the Ubuntu Live CD, in two different ways.

GUI
  1. Boot your computer up with Ubuntu CD
  2. Go through all the process until you reach "[!!!] Disk Partition"
  3. Select Manual Partition
  4. Mount your appropriate linux partions / /boot swap .....
  5. DO NOT FORMAT THEM.
  6. Finish the manual partition
  7. Say "Yes" when it asks you to save the changes
  8. It will give you errors saying that "the system couldn't install ....." after that
  9. Ignore them, keep select "continue" until you get back to the Ubuntu installation menu
  10. Jump to "Install Grub ...."
  11. Once it is finished, just restart your computer

I installed Ubunto 9.0 AND when it came up it said, GRUB LOAD,no such partition, then at a prompt it says,grub rescue.


If you run a dual-boot system with Linux and Windows, this has happened to you. You had to do your monthly reinstall of Windows, and now you don’t see the linux bootloader anymore, so you can’t boot into Ubuntu or whatever flavor of linux you prefer.
Here’s the quick and easy way to re-enable Grub.
1) Boot off the LiveCD
2) Open a Terminal and type in the following commands, noting that the first command will put you into the grub “prompt”, and the next 3 commands will be executed there. Also note that hd0,0 implies the first hard drive and the first partition on that drive, which is where you probably installed grub to during installation. If not, then adjust accordingly.
sudo grub
> root (hd0,0)
> setup (hd0)
> exit
Reboot (removing the livecd), and your boot menu should be back.

Only read below if Windows is now missing from the boot menu
If you installed Ubuntu before you installed Windows, then Ubuntu will not have anything in the grub configuration for Windows. This is where you’ll have to do a bit of manual editing to the grub boot menu file.
If you open the file /boot/grub/menu.lst with the following command:
sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
You’ll see a sample section for Windows, which you’ll want to uncomment and add to the boot menu list in whatever position you want it in. (uncomment by removing the #’s)
# title Windows 95/98/NT/2000
# root (hd0,0)
# makeactive
# chainloader +1
Note that you should also verify that hd0,0 is the correct location for Windows. If you had installed Windows on the 4th partition on the drive, then you should change it to (hd0,3)

Ubuntu Monitor


It's a monitor design quirk causing that.
You got the message because Ubuntu read the info your monitor fed back to your videocard and somehow understood it could run the monitor at a higher or lower frequency than the monitor can really work with; say, 120Hz rather than 70 or 55Hz refresh rates.

 If you don't even get the first logo menu, try hitting either down-arrow, then enter, or F4.  Those correspond to menu choices to boot in failsafe graphics mode or get the menu in such a mode.
