Hi! i really need some help. I changed my screen resolution. Then, unrelated, I was pasting something into office/word/what-cha-ma-call-it and the computer froze. So I went to restart it. It gets past everything, lots of stuff gets loaded, all the "o.k" (except for PCMCIA - but i don't think that ever got an "o.k" on startup) seems to be complete, then the screen goes black, cursor in top left corner, then to the blue kubuntu logo with the blue bar underneath but no further action. i tried Alt Ctrl F1 (Alt Ctrl F7 doesn't work): kdesu kate /etc/X11/xorg.conf to change the resolution manually but it says not connected to "X server". I tried "startx" and it jsut gave me a log and confirmed that it won't boot because of the screen resolution thing. Any suggestions? My essay that's due today is on that computer and I really need to get it so any suggestions are very, very welcome. But, please speak slowly and clearly, my IQ is about 10 with this whole linux stuff.
x11vnc root 0. I just wana login/out from my gdm over vnc. I want to play on my computer while getting paid hourly at work. I found all the other walkthrews, tutorials, howtos to be annoying and not to the point.
This example mounts the first partition of the first disk so it is available whenever you start your computer. Edgy does this by default but technique is useful for Dapper or Breezy or other distros.
sudo mkdir /media/hda1note that you can mount the device anywhere and call it whatever you want. It may be a good idea to stick with the conventional locations of either /mnt/ or /media/. The hda1 part means hard drive "a" partition "1"
sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak
sudo kate /etc/fstab
sudo mount -ato refresh the fstab.
VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote display system which allows you to view a computing `desktop’ environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures.http://www.debianadmin.com/remotely-manage-machines-using-vnc.html

First of all, I wanted to thank all the people on these boards. The help here appears to be amazing. It is so refreshing coming from a Windows back ground to a community of people so willing to help, but not only that, but FRIENDLY to boot.I deffinitely think I am going in the right direction here, so I will try to articulate my question as best as I can, as to not deter you from other posters more "serious" questions. Oh, and I'd like to apologize in advance, as I am sure somewhere in these forums this is probably mentioned, feel free to link me to the article if this question has been asked. I saw a few that were close, but I am not quite sure if they are exactly what I am looking for.Ok to cut out the chit chat, this is my ordeal.I just installed Ubuntu (Dapper Drake) along side my windows xp NTFS partition. I am having trouble getting back into my Windows partition, when it goes to the loading screen of Windows my system reboots (hopefully I didn't destroy my windows partition creating this one, haha.. the joys of learning).
Hi there I'm a genuine newbie at this Linux thing But I realy want to try this. I heard That kubuntu was one of the most user friendly one out there. I'm running it form my cd rom to get to know it better and to learn. But every time I try to use it the same problem happens, it just won't mount my hda1, this is the error message I get "mount: can't find/dev/hda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab"In my media folder I see the drive, but it just doesn't want to mount it. Can someone please help me, I tried the Kaella version before and I didn't have that problem.Thanks for your helpJJ
Installed FlashPlayer 9 beta today and it works okay but you probably want to retain existing flash player 7. (backup instructions below)
sudo cp /usr/local/firefox32/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/local/firefox32/plugins/libflashplayer.so.bak
sudo cp /home/user/Desktop/flash-player-plugin-126.96.36.199/libflashplayer.so /usr/local/firefox32/plugins/libflashplayer.so(note you must insert your user name where I put user in italics.)

Where can i find some down to earth linux tutorials, i recently repartitioned my hard drive so i can dual-boot, either linux, or windows xp, which i got working, but i cant get ubuntu to run on my nvidia fx 5200, i have to disable it, and use my old integrated, and i cant seem to figure out how the linux driver setup works, so i have no audio, i did some searches, and all i got from it was the file with an install file in it, if i run it it says i dont have access to a bunch of stuff, and then it doesnt work.... i just want a tutorial that will show me the basics in how to use linux, so maybe i can figure out what people are talking about when i google for information on a problem
I am a newb to linux and I just installed Ubuntu 6.06 on my Dell Inspiron 5100. Everything works great except for wireless security. I can get the wireless to work if I disable wireless security all together, but that is not how I want to leave my network. I need help getting WPA-PSK to work. In the network -admin tool it does not show an option for WPA-PSK, just WEP.Does anyone have experience setting up WPA-PSK with Ubuntu? Any suggestion on how to get it work would be appreciated.Thanks in advance
I am trying to set up my wireless radio on my Toshiba Satellite laptop, it has an Intel Pro/wireless 3945ABG hardware.

So I was board and was wondering if mIRC would work on Ubuntu threw wine. Now don't give me that xchat is better blah blah blah, because I agree fully. I installed wine via automatix2 (check out there site on how). I just ran threw the install got it on. Whent to mirc.com firefox said open with wine. Sure why not? The installer launched I didn't feel lucky so I didn't install anything but the base program files package. It ran it worked, I got on an fserv, I started a few sends from some bots. Yeah I didnt feel as 'ub3r nix d00d0rz' but it was fun. Just felt like sharing :)-ech0.
I just joined Ubuntux. I'm an Ubuntu User and Ubuntu fan. I'm using Ubuntu for the past 2 years. I was using Fedora before. I just wanted to say Hi to all Ubuntux members. I have my personal blog at http://www.arun-prabha.com/wdpress/ which I update regularly. Visit my blog and post your comments whenever you can.
Hello everyone, Just wanted to post my first blog and introduce myself to everyone here. My name is Eric and I'm from Newport News, Virginia USA. I finally got the cuts to move into the Linux world and join the great helpful community. A quick background of myself is I have been touching on a keyboard since I have been 7 years old which was a old Epson computer, LOL Also I was a great Windows Fan in my begining days and thought Windows was the greatest operating system ever. Until I started to grow up and do more on a computer I came realize that Windows was not. So I've seen in first hand Linux at work and one day I decided to put in Red Hat Linux with no idea what it was or anything. All I knew was I could download it for free and it was Operating System. Well I did'nt enjoy it not because Linux Stink to me, Just because I was not ready. So I continue to use Windows and then I got very frustrated and then I decided to start look else where for a Operating System that I could enjoy using and not have to worry about all these crazy things that Windows gave me from Virus to BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!!! So I finally made a move to Apple OS and now I really enjoyed this operating system very stable and great and all I could say is I learned alot from this Operating System. So now I meet a couple of people in the forums and they told me about Ubuntu Linux, now being my past experience with Linux which was years ago. So I looked into it and finally had them send me some discs but my for Mac Mini. Now not to long ago about 4 days now, I have been running Ubuntu Linux and so far I'm loving it! Great to use the community is great and I'm really enjoying myself with this Operating System. It is amazing how big Linux has grown and how everyone and the communities out there have been into Ubuntu Linux and are enjoying it as well.
