Linux 13.04 with qt4 and qt5 make fail
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I'm new to Qt and have just installed the latest version of Linux (mint Ubuntu 13.04) to begin my programming. To begin with I have installed Qt4 using the github BuildScript (this also installs QtCreater, QtDesigner, QtAssistant, and QtLinguist). I have also installed PySide, as I plan to do a little Pythin gui programming as well. I did not consciously install qt5, but it appears, at some point along the line I did.
The following program from the QT tutorial illustrates my issue:
int main(int argc, char *argv)
QApplication app(argc, argv);
QLabel *label = new QLabel("Hello Qt!");

Does Ubuntu 13.04 + Cinnamon = Linux Mint?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 23, 2013
I know Mint is built upon Ubuntu. So, if you take Ubuntu 13.04 and add Cinnamon, is that the same as Linux Mint or is there more to Mint then just Cinnamon?
updating GRUB in Scientific Linux 6.4 or Live Ubuntu 13.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 12, 2013
I've been working on dual booting Windows 7 and Scientific Linux 6.4 on my computer (HP Pavilion dv6 with i686 processor and nvidia GEFORCE GT graphics card), and I've run into some trouble with the actual dual boot part.
I couldn't install SL6.4 originally because I got a warning that said "Disks sda, sdb contain BIOD RAID metadata, but are not part of any recognized BIOS RAID sets. Ignoring disks sda, sdb."
I followed the instructions from asymptoticFault on this page http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2038121 After I deleted the metadata, I was then able to put SL6.4 on the parition. I ran into the same problem as asymptoticFault with GRUB, but, I think since I was only using a live version of Ubuntu, I was unable to use "update-grub" because "error-failed to get canonical path of /cow".
I tried to follow the instructions from http://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-repair...d#.UbhsJ9I3tCg but, perhaps since I an using SL6.4 instead of Ubuntu, w
Ubuntu 13.04 vs Linux Mint 15
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 10, 2013
Hi. My friend has an older netbook (it's a Dell Inspiron Mini 1012). The HDD on said netbook had crashed and he just bought a new HDD for it. Anyway, he needs to (obviously) install an OS on it and I volunteered to do it for him. He's a Windows user and is actually rather happy with it, but the problem is he no longer has his Windows product key. The problem is that he's pretty broke and doesn't have the money to buy another copy of Windows so I pointed out that Linux, being open source, is free. He's going to contact Dell and try to get a recovery disk out of them. Personally, I think a snowball has a better chance in h***. So I'm planning on installing Linux for him. I should probably mention that I use Ubuntu because that was the first distro that I tried and had no problem with Unity. Also, I'm kind of lazy and I can't be bothered to install a different distro. I figure that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But back to what I was saying, this switch to Linux is only bec
Inten Graphics 4500HD X3 Game(Linux) on Ubuntu 13.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 6, 2013
Yesterday I tried to install X3: Reunion( Linux Distribution) on Ubuntu 13.04(32 bit). My computer(Notebook/Laptop) uses the Intel Graphics 4500HD.
Ubuntu's driver alternative- installed: Intel® Ironlake Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2 (This driver was there, when I installed Ubuntu. I also used the Intel Updater, but the Intel Updater keeps informing me, that I already have the newest driver installed)
My first question:
Is my graphics driver correct?
I ask because, after I installed X3: Reunion( Linux Distribution) the game hasn't been able to start. I have already searched the Internet for many many hours.
Even so I haven't been able to find any answer to the error- messages I get starting X3(check below). I am not sure if it's my driver or a bad game install( I already tried to re-install the game) I have heard that there are others who experienced similar issues on Linux, trying to install games.
Maybe someone can help me?
When I start the game launcher, I get this error:
Really bad experience with Ubuntu Linux (Unity, 13.04)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 7, 2013
I'm not a typical Ubuntu user and was one of the many people alienated by the new tablet/simplified interface when it came out.
However after seeing the Ubuntu phone in action and hearing about their viewpoint (which is always useful to understand where they're coming from) I decided to try this rolling release distro with the Unity interface. It started out well as it swiftly breezed through booting off the USB drive into the live distribution. The desktop environment was above my expectations in performance, especially using the open source video driver.
Even though the post is primarily for my bad experiences, there's a lot of good things which I think makes this OS excel in areas no other OS has.
The use of space is brilliant, as vertical space is the most expensive, it makes use of horizontal and makes vertical reusable. It puts all menus in the active window in the same area and maximised applications can cut off its window bar and lets you drag it i
[solved] install bootable live USB for Ubuntu 13.04 with linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2013
I installed Ubuntu 13.04 on my USB stick using Universal USB Installer in Windows. This worked fine and I was able to boot. However, I destroyed my Windows installation (trying to install Ubuntu) and I don't have a working windows system at home currently. I have tried using Unetbootin to install "ubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso", however, it does not boot. I can seem the files are there. I download a new image in case it was corrupt but that made no difference. I can install "linuxmint-14.1-mate-dvd-64bit.iso" with Unetbootin (and Manjaro) and it boots fine. Is there something special about Ubuntu 13.04? I have also tried the dd command but that never gives a booting USB.
