Can My System Run Ubuntu 12.04 ?
- date: May 7, 2012
I upgraded my system from Ubuntu 10.10 on a 9 year old computer to Ubuntu 12.04 last night. During the installation process I saw an error message about a kernel module not being installed properly. When I try to reboot I get a message telling me my video stuff isn't configured properly with an option for going in with low graphics mode. I can't as Ubuntu doesn't pick up my mouse or keyboard.
I plan to go to the store tomorrow to get a USB hard drive to rescue my files with a livecd.
I'm wondering if I should attempt a clean install of Ubuntu 12.04 or use an older version that is newer than 10.10.
Will my hardware run Ubuntu 12.04 well?:

Graphic system malfunction ubuntu 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 8, 2013
I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 with Cinnamon.
After a while I had a hang of the system and I couldn't use the keyboard and mouse and had to hard reset the machine. Immediately after that I had an error message that said I was working in low graphics mode, I tried fixing it with the xorg.conf file but no luck.
I had uninstalled Cinnamon, and reinstalled my ATI driver but now I'm on Unity with the computer seeing only one screen of two and in the resolution of the second one (since they are duplicated).
I also disabled the screensaver, but still the screen goes blank after about 10 min. I tried to remove the cinnamon packages I see with dpkg but I get a message that they are not installed and nothing to remove.
I booted the computer to recovery mode and ran the dpkg entry in order to try and fix any broken packages, no luck.
How can I fix my computer? I would like not to reinstall but to fix the problem.
If I have to reinstall the system, what configuration files should I save
Recommened system requirements Ubuntu XP Vista
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 29, 2006
This is more a curiosity thing. I have surfed and compiled this information. Do you think this is accurate?
I view minimum requirements as little more than booting up an operating system. I have Ubuntu installed on my study box, 1Ghz AMD CPU, 393 MB RAM, 10 GB HDD and 80 GB for data. It is really beautiful.
Before I was running XP for a short time (I only recently built the box) and that was good. Yet Ubuntu is definitely faster and more exciting and fun for me.
In terms of recommended requirements, is the following accurate as a measureable comparision?
Ubuntu desktop install
100 MHz CPU
128 MB RAM
1 GB HDD
Windows XP desktop install
300 MHz CPU
128 MB RAM
1.5 GB HDD
Windows Vista desktop install
1 GHz CPU
1 GB RAM
15 GB HDD (at least 40BG HDD in total)
System 76 ubuntu 10.04 panp7 modem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 20, 2010
Recently my organization purchased quite a few of the Pangolin Performance laptops (panp7) to send to areas around the South Pacific. I'm brand new to the world of Ubuntu, having only had a very limited exposure to LINUX about 10 years ago. Please bear with me if I'm asking simple questions so far. I really like Ubuntu in the month and a half I've been using it!
So... how the heck do I enable the modem? I took a look at my "Ubuntu Unleashed" book and fiddled with the Network connections but I can't seem to find the magic button. If I try to add a wired connection Ubuntu seems to think I mean Ethernet and doesn't give me the option for a modem.
Thanks in advance!
HOWTO: Create a custom LiveCD of your system (distributable) Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 3, 2008
This tutorial will explain, in what I believe to be, the simplest way to backup your system into a distributable LiveCD/DVD, with or without your personal data. This is done using a wonderful little utility called Remastersys. This utility can back up your personal data in a custom bootable LiveCD (a .iso that can be burnt to a CD/DVD, size permitting). Or it can create a distributable copy of your entire system, exempting your personal files (useful for systechs that need to install ubuntu on multiple machines without a network).
THIS HOWTO DOES NOT COME WITH ANY WARRANTY/GUARANTEE IN ANY WAR OR FORM, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Depending on the size of your system between 3-5 GB of extra space on you hard drive to store the .iso temporarily.Knowing how to burn .iso's. Don't know go hereAdmin privileges.A DVD/CD burner that works.
First you need to add Remastersys to your repository.
Open Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal)
[SOLVED] File system cleanup Ubuntu 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 2, 2014
I have a folder created by the system (I think) called.
which contains three folders and two files
/fail /large /normal and gnome-exe-thumbnailer.cfg gnome-exe-thumbnailer.files
I don't know why these were created but
/normal has 9500+ items and is growing daily at the moment it is taking up 100Mb diskspace.
Could someone please explain this and would it be OK* to delete the 9500+ thumbnail images.
(* what would be the implication of deleting them)
Thanks as always in anticipation.
Running Music Library System on Ubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 23, 2014
I'm quite new to Ubuntu (12.04), but happy with it so far. I'm migrating from XP. On XP I have a very old specialized DOS data base called "Music Library System." (I installed it under MS-D0S in 1988.) It holds all the cross-indexted files from some 3000 LPs, CDs, DVD/BluRay discs, LDs, and LPs of classical music. It is rather specialized and I've been completely unsuccessful at moving the files to a modern database program including the one in LibreOffice. I can run it in XP with no problem. I'd like to run in it Ubuntu, probably in something like VM box using a suitable DOS like FreeDos. Is that remotely possible? If so I could use a little guidance.
I presently have a separate HD (E:\ under XP and media/data under Ubuntu) configured to be visible to both OPs and to share the same profiles with Firefox and Thunderbird along with a large quantity of other information. It also contains the Music Library System, its executable file and all six of the separate databas
System requirements for 10.04?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 6, 2011
Hi, I have an older PC running Ubuntu 10.04, and the system is slow, especially with Firefox running. I recently upgraded to 2 gig memory, but it didn't help. I have plenty of space on my hard-drive, using only 30 gig of 80 gig. My CPU is Intel Celeron 2.40GHz. I have broadband, and the speed seems good.
What are the system requirements for Ubuntu 10.04? Any tips for speeding performance, esp on Firefox? I used to do a defrag when I had Windows; is there any need to do that on Ubuntu also?
Thanks in advance!
Libreoffice Calc 3.3.3 causes system freeze (Ubuntu 11.04)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 29, 2011
I frequently (i.e. after 10-20 minutes of use) get a complete system freeze when using LibreOffice Calc 3.3.3, on Ubuntu 11.04. At the time, I have an *.ods file open, and the freeze happens at various times, for example just after pressing the Page Up button. After the freeze occurs, nothing responds, not even Ctrl+Alt+F1, and I have to force power off my laptop.
I have no idea how to debug this problem, as there's no error message, no error log (that I know of??)... A quick google didn't help me either.
Could someone please help me debug this problem, e.g. suggesting where to look for log files, etc? I'm happy to provide more information, I'm just not sure what is relevant at this early stage.
Thanks in advance for your help,
