Launcher, icons, terminal not working after routine updating ubuntu 12.04 lts
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 9, 2013
I have routine updated ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit. I have dual os: windows 7 and ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit. Grub is working fine. Windows 7 is also working fine. I have installed from a CD downloaded from ubuntu site. I have updated my 12.04 successfully in last few months. I did routine update on 12.04 as usual and it asked me to restart to complete update. I restarted and arrive at a signon screen which has my username and "Guest". This screen shows the menu at the top with power, time, calendar, etc. So I entered my password and I am taken to a screen which only shows a blank screen, empty launcher area only including dash and trash. The only thing that works is I cam move my mouse but there is nothing on screen which I can click. Terminal is also not working using Alt+Ctrl+T key. Please help in this.

FSCK scan error during startup 'routine system scan' please help!

Error during routine system scan.
When did it happen?
During the system startup procedure at the 'Ubuntu' orange and black splashscreen.
A small message at the bottom read
"Routine scan of /dev/shm/root - x% complete."
Then after a minute or two, I received the following page of white text on a black screen. I took a photo of it and have copied it out verbatim.
/dev/shm/root: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY: Run fsck MANUALLY.
- (i.e. without -a or -p options)
fsck died with exit status 4
checking drive /dev/shm/root: 93% (stage 4/5, 50/105)
An automatic file system check (fsck) of the root filesystem failed.
A manual fsck must be performed, then the system restarted.
The fsck should be performed in maintenance mode with the root filesystem mounted in read-only mode.
The root filesystem is currently mounted in read-only mode.
A maintenance shell will now be started.
After performing system maintenance, press CONTROL-D
Opensuse 11 boot routine and video settings
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 27, 2008
When I boot up my machine running Opensuse 11 it goes through the regular process during which there is a period where I am asked to select a video setting or wait 30 seconds.
What exactly is the point of this? I always just wait out the 30 seconds and my video, resolution and such run just fine.
How can I stop this process from occurring during boot up, if at all?
Driver interrupt routine problem in Gentoo Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 31, 2006
Forgive me if this topic is already posted, I searched and couldn't find it. If it is and has useful info, please send me the link to the post.....
I am writing a device driver for Gentoo Linux (2006.0 - kernel 2.6x) for a PCI hardware device and seem to be having interrupt problems.
I have two PCI hardware devices and have ported my device driver from Redhat 9 (kernel 2.4x).
In my driver, I am using the request_irq() kernel function in my driver to reqister my interrupt handler and only receive interrupts from one of my boards, but not the other one. I have swapped the boards' physical locations and made sure that they swapped IRQ lines as a test and it seems to have followed the physical location so I am 99.999% sure it is not a board problem and %99.99 sure it is not my chassis, based on other tests I have ran. The device has a PLX 9030 chip on it and I have determined that the correct register for the interrupt line has indead gone low and should have generated a ha
Why the Disk Workout (Crunchy Crunch)?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 17, 2007
When a PC has 1.5 Gigabytes of RAM available to it, and is showing a KDE desktop running Mepis6.0 (uses Ubuntu engine), with nothing special happening, why is it necessary that we should ever hear a disk access other than when some new window or application is opened the first time that session?
A click on the Konqueror icon brings a dandy little series of crunches, with a repeat performance when the window is closed. Same is true of almost any action.
This is not about me desiring a life sans disk crunches. I already know that the algorithms that manage desktop response and memory are subtle and sophisticated, and probably would tax most users understanding. Maybe this is something specific to KDE - I don't know.
Given that the entire set of running services plus applications of interest, and all the temporary files they could generate could fit in the RAM I would have expected that one could compute at length, with the hard drive spun down on standby much of the time.
[SOLVED] Coding an Interrupt Service Routine for the serial port in Linux !!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 21, 2009
I got a problem with the following interrupt handler code with respect to serial port 1. I have a cable connecting two serial ports of two computers with linux on them. On one computer there is minicom installed and on another I have compiled and successfully insmoded the below shown module. But when I type on minicom, it doesnt show anything (by the command 'dmesg') on the other computer where my module is loaded!
Kindly help me debug this code.
Why is Linux with 64Mb RAM so butt slow?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 8, 2002
It sucks it's like slowmo. It's impossible to use kde/gnome for any serious work. Regardless of cpu with 600MHz,
Windoze xp runs 2x faster on same config.

Keyboard layount not correct for 11.04 Brazilian Portuguese
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 4, 2011
Im back to 2004. The keyboard layout for Brazilian Portuguese and a US keyboard is not working whatsoever in KDE 4.6 and Kubuntu 11.04. Apostrofe plus c should give cedilla, and now is not giving anything. Tried to change everything possible:
1) Language is set to Portuguese Brazilian in System Settings.
2) locale: pt_BR.UTF-8
3) env | grep LANG: LANG=pt_BR.UTF-8
4) Keyboard Layout: doesnt matter the one I try to use, no change.
What can I do? I just installed kubuntu from debian cause debian was giving too much trouble...
EDIT: Checking with my old debian installation, I changed the file /etc/default/keyboard field
Will check to see if it's working.
Inside Google Chrome, Firefox, Eclipse, the cedilla works fine: ç. But in
C routine "readline" missing in CentOS 6.4
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 27, 2013
"readline" is a C library routine that allows command line editing
as in bash shell.
I was hapily using the readline package in CentOS 5.1 then
when I upgraded to 6.4 in went away. In 5.1 the headers
#include <readline/readline.h> and #include <readline/history.h
were there but not in 6.4. I installed the "readline" package but
that did not fix it. Any suggestions?
