ubuntu 12.04 will not boot properly
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 24, 2013
I am new to ubuntu as I recently started gaining interest in the OS. I recently decided to install Ubuntu server 12.04 on my lenovo ideacentre which had windows 8 pre-installed in it.
I decided to chose to install Ubuntu server 12.04 form a USB drive and continued with the installation perfectly.
It successfully rebooted once after the the "FInish installation" screen from the (U. 12.04) installation process but was not able to connect to the internet , when i pinged www.google.com it gave me an unreachable host error.
Then,I decided to restart the machine using
Then, I was surprised that the machine gave me this message:
Error 1962: no operating system found. Press any key to repeat boot sequence.
Could anyone please guide me to fix this issue.?
I tried reinstalling it but in vain.
Thank you for your time
Ubuntu 12.04 will not shutdown; it hangs
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 9, 2013
I'm brand new to the forums! I am running a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and now my computer will not shutdown with regularity. (Sometimes it shuts down, usually it hangs on the Ubuntu screen with one or no dots colored orange.) Restart seems to work well most of the time (as in that only hung once).
I tried going to the safe mode to start and reboot from there; that seems to shutdown just fine.
From the regular (non-safe) version of 12.04, I tried typing in
sudo shutdown now
and could see that shutdown froze on the error

Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
Dell D620 Ubuntu 12.04 will not shut down.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 7, 2014
When I try to shut down my Dell D620 (12.04), it goes to the purple screen with the Ubuntu logo and the five dots and will not shut down. Ever. When I try to pull up a terminal window for a force quit, I get a black page with a few lines of very tiny text about processes that were successfully shut down, and then a line that says, "Asking all remaining processes to shut down . . . . . . . FAIL."
Everything was working perfectly until I tried to shut it down for the night.
At this point, I seem to have no option other than to hold the power button down until it shuts off. I feel like I'm strangling the poor thing.
Ubuntu 12.04 will not print to Star TSP100
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 29, 2013
I have the 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 installed.
Can't print to usb Star TSP100 receipt printer.
Print Config sees the printer, drivers installed, just wont print.
Tried going to Star web site and DL the driver there and follow directions to make driver. That failed. No makefile present, was the error. Then tried to get working via CUPS. It "sees" the printer but won't print. Just like trying to install it via the "Print Config" (older version, not the newer one in Ubuntu 12)
Found a 32-bit PPD, but would not work with 64-bit Ubuntu, errored out. This is silly, I must be missing something, esp since Ubuntu recognizes the printer (though it sees it as a TSP113. No matter)
The .deb file that was mentioned out this site fora driver no longer works. Perhaps too old. Errors out.
kde on ubuntu 12.04 will not log out
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 29, 2014
This has been an on going problem.
I originally installed ubuntu 12.04 i386 that came with the awful unity (ie "tablet") desktop so I tried various "fixes" including installing gnome which works fine but on installing kde, which I did first, it runs without problems except for logging out or shuting down on the gui.
The best I can do from the gui is select "switch user" which gives me a "switch session" option then I can toggle betwwen gnome and kde but have to shutdown in gnome or use the cli.
Ubuntu 10.04 will not install over Debian 502
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 19, 2010
I have Debian 502 installed on a Dell Petntium 4 (3.40Ghz). It installed fine and works fine. I have decided to try Ubuntu 10.04. I was able to run Ubuntu 10.04 from the boot disk so I think the boot disk is fine.
Now I want to cleanly remove Debian and install 10.04. I have not been able to do that. I have tried several times over several days to do a fresh install from the Ubuntu 10.04 boot screen (it asked to run from CD or install Ubuntu.) I take all the defaults and change only to Central time. It eventually gets to a blank purple hue screen and that's it.
So, I think I want to just start over and completely wipe out Debian first. I have nothing on Debian that I need. Then I will install Ubuntu 10.04 after the machine is cleaned of Debian. Could someone please give me the steps to do that? (Please know I am new to Linux and Ubuntu and details would be greatly appreciated).
Ubuntu 12.04 Will not boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 9, 2012
I have recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on a secondary partition on my laptop. I have rescued and reinstalled at least 6 times after wiping and remaking the partition. Every time I install linux it completes successfully. Now, when I select the OS from GRUB it crashes after giving quite a long list of failed device connection errors SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 310).
The thing is that I can boot fine to my windows partition. On the previous hard drive I had inside this laptop I did not have this problem. The last Hard drive recently died and replaced it with this 7200 500gb drive. Ever since I have been getting this error.
Also, is there a way to record the output to show you guys?
Ubuntu 12.04.2 new install System error message Password requested !
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 5, 2013
Hello I am a newbie and have just installed ver 12.04.2. and am suspiscious of a dialogue appearing on a blank desktop "System error detected" I press OK and another dialogue asks me for my password to access the system error.
My suspiscions result from prior instal of ver 12.04.1 (which I have replaced with 12.04.2). The update manager on ver 1 advised there were over 300 updates to download upon install. After responding to an authentication request for a password, only some of the number of the updates were downloaded. SUSEQUENT use of the update manager did not ask for my authentication even after a system reboot.
Am I just imagining a SECURITY problem when the ver.12.04.2 asks for a password on an unexplained system error?
Ubuntu 12.04 does not boot from live disk
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 2, 2012
CURRENTLY NOT SOLVED. I think it is a CD drive issue at this point. Read post #5
1) I have verified the checksum
2) I meat the recommended system requirements. 1ghz processor, 1024 mb of ram, a 128mb graphics card
3) my computer is currently booting windows 2000. I wish to dual boot.
4) My computer is at least 13 years old.
5) for all of these I used a 32 i386 iso (the one that was auto recommended to me by official unbuntu download page)
6) I can't boot from a USB stick. No dice from this old bios.
7) Yes, almost forgot, I have made back-ups.
Okay... first I tried Wubi (the windows installer) and everything seemed to be going well. After the first reboot everything seemed okay. It started checking all of the install stuff. Then, for a very brief second, a white box (that looked like the slide show) flashed on and off in the middle of the screen. Once it flashed off I got a black screen. I'm pretty sure that I need to remove the slide show via the "sudo apt-get remove ubiquity-
Ubuntu 12.04 Java Failed Install
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 10, 2012
Hi I tried to install Java for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and the install failed!
I am getting loads of random app crashes and spongy slow response of the system
I don't know how to remove what's been done or how to actually
get Java on the system.
Everything was good until this. I have copied the terminal
output for you to look at and maybe offer me a way out of this.
Reinstalling is not a good option right now, as i have a ton of data.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y
