Adobe Flash Plugin Crashes with Webcam
- date: May 5, 2012
On my 10.04 machine, I have a webcam that has always worked with Flash. Well, up until recently, that is.
Now, I have discovered that if I go to a test site like:
I get the error message that "The Adobe Flash Plugin Has crashed". It happens with Firefox 12 (I've backported it via PPA) and but I've tried Opera and that doesn't work either. Needless to say, the webcam works fine locally (in Cheese and Kamoso).
Curiously, the webcam works on two other Ubuntu 11.10 machines I've tested both using Firefox 12 and Flash 126.96.36.199 (the same Firefox/Flash combon as on my 10.04 machine). I've tried completely removing the plugin from both the Ubuntu Software Center and the command line (and doing a -clean and -autoremove to remove broken packages) then re-installing it to no avail. I just can't get it to work anymore and it used to.
I've tried googling for this problem, for people having problems with the combination of 10.04/Firefox 12/A
Poor streaming performance using flash plugin with 4OD and BBC iplayer
- date: November 16, 2009
I doubt that I'm the first to report unacceptably poor streaming media performance using the flash player plugin ver. 10.0.32.18 and ubuntu 9.10. I uninstalled all the installed flash players using the software centre following a forum suggestion and loaded the latest .deb version from adobe but, apart from not improving the streaming, I can't alter the installed version because I'm not quite sure what title to put in the apt-get remove. It does appear to be working as well as any, however. Mainly I can't alter the cache size - I can get the settings applet to display and highlight it's wee slider (only using the tab key or, oddly, the up arrow, however, not mouse) but I cannot move the slider to increase the cache size from 2KB with any combination of mouse or keys yet tried. I'm sure if I could the playback performance would become acceptable. Performance is equally bad with either Opera or Firefox. At present I'm dual booting back into XP to watch 4OD or Iplayer which works fine wh
Compiz crashes with SIGSEGV after upgrade to 12.04
- date: April 26, 2012
I just upgraded to 12.04. After reboot, I can't login because compiz crashes with a SIGSEGV (nvidia, x86_64). No workaround. Apparently there are several bug reports about this, some of which a couple of weeks old.
And again, I'm stuck with a broken upgrade. For several releases, Ubuntu stability is in free-fall... If Ubuntu wants to keep their rapidly shrinking user base, they'd better act fast.
With a such a huge bug on release date, at least have the decency to postpone the release until fixed!
Using a USB flash drive with Linux
- date: September 9, 2003
USB Flash drives are one of the coolest new tools available these days. And they're getting so cheap, it's easy to carry one around with you anywhere. Finally it looks like the USB flash drive will kill off the floppy once and for all – except for the lack of native Linux support.
I carry my files back and forth from the office to home with a 32MB USB flash drive. But transporting files from my Linux test machine at work typically involves two steps:
1. Copy the bits onto a Windows machine via Samba
2. Write those bits to my USB flash drive using the Wintel machine.
Now this is not really an arduous process, but wouldn't it be nice to use that flash drive directly in the Linux system? Well I recently figured out how to do that, and I thought I'd share my experience with you.
This tip was put together on a box running Red Hat 9, but the same procedure should yield the same results on any Linux distro.
To start off, you'll need to be logged in a
X Server Crashes with SIGSEGV when firefox starts
- date: July 18, 2012
OK, this bug is livable with but very very annoying. I /am/ running Linux Mint, but it's based on Ubuntu and I think ubuntu users may have this problem too. Please help me if you can!!
Reproducable: not always.
a) start system.
b) load firefox.
c) profilemanager comes up (by default on my computer); select profile. CRASH.
Symptoms (one of these will happen; b) only happens on the boot up after a) happened, but is much rarer).
a) Screen freezes. No buttons have any effect, not Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, power, nothing. There is a high-pitched wine, possibly from my monitor but probably from something else. The only thing I can do is hold down power and do a hard reset.
b) Screen goes black and then the login prompt is shown.
a) I had a look in my /var/log/Xorg.log.0.old file when this happened once (after much googling), and found something about a SIGSEGV (segmentation fault?). Unfortunately I didn't save the file, and it doesn't have it any more.

[SOLVED] Move browser tmp to RAM with Opera
- date: December 8, 2011
According to this guide (http://www.fewt.com/2010/07/move-you...es-to-ram.html) ) I just moved all of my temp files and logs to RAM.
The last part, the one that talks about creating a /tmp string, is about Firefox, a browser I don't use.
I'd like to do the same thing (moving my browser tmp su RAM, with Opera.
Graphical Glitches and flash problem with linux mint.
- date: April 29, 2009
I know that Mint is based on ubuntu and thought that my best bet was to post here as this is the most active forum I have come across and I was experiencing similar problems in ubuntu.
The problem I am having is when I am doing graphically intense things such as playing video or doing certain things in blender I get a sort of flickering from my monitor, there is no problems with normal use but it is quite annoying when it does happen because it makes those programs unusable.
I am also having a (I think) flash related problem, Whenever I load a page with embedded youtube videos or similar They show up at first and then after a short amount of time, when thew whole page has loaded they all disapear. I have tried
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
and it said it was already the latest version.
Thanks In advance
VLC crashes with a DVD
- date: January 17, 2011
VLC has been working fine and has played this DVD before. The DVD is in very good condition but is now causing a problem.
VLC will show the fist few menus/clips but as it's about to get to the main menu it stops. The error is:
main error: ES_OUT_SET_(GROUP_)PCR is called too late (pts_delay increased to 3345 ms)
main warning: early picture skipped
main warning: received buffer in the future
Any ideas? Thanks.
Running VLC from the command line says:
libdvdnav: DVD disk reports itself with Region mask 0x00e50000. Regions: 2 4 5
Warning: call to srand(872178)
