[SOLVED] sudo without password works not for mount/umount
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 2, 2010
Title edited because of this.
I want to grant the rights to run some programs that need root privilegues to my normal user (tobi), using sudo without password authentification for ease of use. And here I am running into problems. To make things clear, here is my sudoers file:
DUAL BOOT, Ubuntu 11.10, Windows XP factory reset not working
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 25, 2011
Hi everyone. Was wondering if anyone else has run across something like this dual booting or has advice.
I dual boot Ubuntu 11.10, and Windows XP. It worked GREAT, I can read-write to windows. but Windows got a horrible trojan I can't fix (I was dumb and didn't update java - learned my lesson the hard way).
I went to factory reset, like normal. I went to the partition it's on but it can't "find" the file required. So I can't factory reset Windows. I can't get into windows without it crashing within one minute, if I can get it up at all (even safe mode). So I really want to factory reset. I can access all files from Ubuntu so I'm ok in that sense but... I want my computer working fully again.
Any advice or previous experiences like this? What might be causing this?

Upgraded to 12.10 from 12.04. Webapps not working.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 19, 2012
I just upgraded my 12.04 box to 12.10. I have a few problems:
1) In 12.04 I added google's repo to install chrome. Web apps are not working with chrome for me right now
2) I installed chromium from the software center. Web apps are not working from chromium
3) I opened gmail from firefox. It almost looked like webapps were going to work with firefox as I got a popup from gmail to enable desktop functionality. However, I don't get a gmail icon in sidebar, and none of the webapp integration is present on my ubuntu!
4) I saw in a youtube video that gimp was integrated with unituy apps and that the dashboard would give me extra functionallity.. This isn't present in my install
How can I get the unity apps/ web apps to work? This was the feature I was looking forward to the most!
Ubuntu Studio 8.10: Wired Internet/USB ports not working correctly
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 1, 2009
I am new to linux and ubuntu studio and when I installed in onto my computer and plugged up the ethernet cable the internet does not work. I looked the helper things and it said that wired internet shouldnt require any sort of setup to work. Also when i plug the external hard drive with all of my stuff on it it says unable to mount volume. When I follow the directions using the terminal to force it and detect a problem it does not show a problem. I was really excited about using ubuntu and these problems are starting to kill the excitement. Please advise me!

Samba unix password sync not working
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 21, 2008
Can anybody tell me how to make Samba REALLY sync password with system?
It worked long time ago, but now it's broken somehow...
I use Ubuntu 8.10 Server (beta) but in 8.04 I had the same problem.
The adequate part of smb.conf below...
####### Authentication #######
security = user
encrypt passwords = true
passdb backend = tdbsam
obey pam restrictions = yes
unix password sync = yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
; passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .
passwd chat = *password:* %n\n *password:* %n\n *password*
pam password change = yes
map to guest = bad user
As you can see, I've even tried to simplify passwd chat to the limits. Still with no success.
What is wrong?
How can I investigate what is going on during smbpasswd USER operation?
auth.log nor log.smbd not showing any passwd operation.
BTW I can't make any of Ubuntu, Fedora o
Lubuntu upgraded to 12.10 from 12.04 DNS not working
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 19, 2012
Hello, I upgraded my Lubuntu 12.04 (which was working fine) to 12.10 today and I've encountered the following problem:
DNS does not seem to be working correctly, it looks like the DNS settings I set in Network-Manager are not saved/used correctly.
If I type
in a terminal window I get a timeout.
If I type
nslookup www.google.com 184.108.40.206
in a terminal window I get a response.
Everything dependent on DNS is not working (firefox etc.)
It thought my router might be the culprit because sometimes DNS fails using the router, however if I type
nslookup www.google.com a.b.c.d
(router ip) I get replies.
Anyway, I tried to change the DNS address in the network-manager configuration to 220.127.116.11 with DHCP enabled for the IP-address.
After reconnecting/rebooting nslookup shows the same behaviour.
I've found some info on the internet mentioning dnsmasq which might cause trouble:
squirrelmail change password plugin not working on ubuntu 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 31, 2012
I've installed squirrelmail 1.4.22 on ubuntu server 12.04 and it's working fine. Now I want the users to be able to change their password. I've installed the plugin change_passwd 4.0-1.2.8 and it seemed to be working, but when an user login & try to change their password, an error massage: "An error has occurred while attempting to change your password. Please contact your system administrator."
Does someone know where the error can be and how to solve it?
