Need help in Ubuntu 9.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 29, 2012
I have recently installed Ubuntu 9.04 in this computer. I am new to Ubuntu since I am a Windows User. The reason why I changed to Ubuntu is because our instructor is using Ubuntu for Netowrk and Communiations. I chosed this specific Version of Ubuntu is because of my hardware specs. It is only Pentium IV, memory is 512 and the Video card is 256. Unless if you can reccomend me a version which is supported by my COmputer or latest, it will be fine by me. My problem is that I cannot install google chrome nor update the files in this OS. I always get an error "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libasound2 (>> 1.0.22)". So, I wanna ask if there is a solution for this, or what browser do I ned in order for me to use a flash player.
Ubuntu 10.04 is awful: Abandon or Fix, need your help?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 30, 2010
So I have been having nothing but problems with 10.04 and considering this is an LTS I am thinking of just abandoning Ubuntu but I wanted to ask around and see what others think. Admittedly this post is a bit of a rant but I also honestly asking for feedback on some of my proposed fix ideas so bear with me. I am not just trolling or lashing out.
My first problem with 10.04 was a kernel bug that caused a 60 second or so pause in bootup. I did all the work myself and some 70 or so kernel compiles later I tracked it down. See the bug report here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/595448. But the bug report has been absolutely silent. No comment from the devs or anything. What am I supposed to do if I just hit a wall of deafening silence, especially since I provided the solution?
Next up I run in to trouble with mountall (the current bane of my existence). The maintainer for this thing is insane. He is not going to fix simple and obvious bugs in for an LTS r

Need help in Getting Atheros AR5006X WLAN Working in Ubuntu 8.04.01 64bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 27, 2008
I need help in getting my Compaq F756NR laptop with Atheros Wi-Fi chipset working in Ubuntu 8.04.1 64-bit (Hardy Heron). I can't seem to make the WLAN working.
In Windows XP Pro SP3, the Device Manager lists the WLAN as Atheros AR5006X Wireless Network Adapter. Also, I'm currently using in Windows XP Pro SP3 the Atheros v18.104.22.168 for Windows 9x, 2000 and XP
I have also installed all of the updates listed in the Update Manager as of this posting
Here's some screen outputs that might be useful in finding a solution with my problem:

I need help transcoding my FLAC audio to an iPod using Ubuntu 8.04!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 24, 2008
Thanks in advance for your help. I'm typing this way past my bedtime, so I hope that it all makes sense.
I am trying to upload music from my Ubuntu 8.04 computer to my iPod. My computer is running 32-bit GNOME Ubuntu, I have activated medibuntu, allowed backports in Software Sources, installed restricted extras, and installed all updates. My iPod is generation 5.0, and I freshly restored it earlier today with the latest firmware using Windows XP and the newest version of iTunes. My music collection is a mixture of mp3 and FLAC audio files. Obviously, I need to transcode my FLAC files to an iPod-compatible format. But none of the programs that I've tried thus far have been satisfactory.
Rhythmbox insists on transcoding into an m4a format. None of the transcoded files will play correctly on my iPod. Is it possible to have Rhythmbox transcode FLAC => mp3 instead?
Floola seems like a potentially great iPod manager/transcoder. But the program simply gets overwhelmed by the 3000+
Accidentally deleted partitions when reinstalling Ubuntu, need help recovering data.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 1, 2012
I have a laptop with a 500 GB harddisk. It had a Ubuntu and Windows 7 dualboot but now after a partitioning mistake it only has Ubuntu.
For Ubuntu I had a root partition, a home partition and a swap partition.
For Windows I had a main partition and a backup partition for backing up data on the main partition.
In my home partition I had some encrypted home folders from previous Ubuntu installs.
I wanted to access the data in these encrypted partitions.
I followed this webpage https://help.ubuntu.com/community/En...home_directory and I created a new folder called backup in my home partition to copy the data from the encrypted home folders.
I managed to put all the data from the encrypted home folders into the backup folder.
I deleted all the encrypted home folders.
I decided to reinstall Ubuntu and choose not to encrypt the new user's home folder.
In the installer's partitioning stage it told me Ubuntu and Windows were already on the harddisk and whether to install
Need help getting Navistick USB GPS dongle working in Ubuntu 10.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 25, 2011
Hi, I am new to Ubuntu (4 mos) and recently purchased a Navistick LE GPS dongle to use with Viking and/or Tango. One of the reasons I chose the Navistick is that it was advertised as being Linux compatible. The device came with a CD with drivers and such for Windows and Linux. I tried to follow the instructions included on the CD to create a RPM (which I was going to try to convert to .DEB with alien) to install the driver. I entered the commands but could not find an RPM file anywhere. I contacted the manufacturer who gave me the link to an updated driver. The file referenced in the link turned out to not be a valid archive file so I was unable to unarchive it. I was also instructed to look for posts in forums about "CP210x USB to UART bridge VCP drivers". I didn't find anything except stuff about modems not working.
I have kernel 2.6.32-30-generic running on a Toshiba satellite notebook. I have used a different GPS device with both Tango and Viking and that works pretty we

how to partition UBUNTU 8.04 (need help badly!!!!)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 24, 2008
i'm new to ubuntu...i'm currently running on windows xp sp2 and i plan to dual boot using UBUNTU 8.04 LTS (you know, test the water first before plunging in)...
as a backgrounder, i have partitioned my 250GB hard drive into three (3) partitions (80GB each) using windows...my windows XP is installed in the 1st partition; the 2nd is where all my media (mp3s, pictures, applications, etc.)...the 3rd is left empty (i've read from a magazine (Linux Format) that you should install Linux (ubuntu, for that matter) to a separate partition if you plan to dual boot -- besides the fact that it may cause conflict if installed in the same partition as that of windows)...
i already burned the image to a CD and have tried to install ubuntu (almost)...
anyways, i'm having problems on partitioning...i tried to use the 3rd option (manual partitioning) but i'm having second thoughts (in short, nervous coz i might %&$#-up my computer)...the window showed me the 3 partitions...i opt
