update manager fails in Ubuntu 8.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 2, 2009
I get the following error when attempting to install the updates from update manager in Ubuntu 8.10
Failed to run /usr/sbin/synaptic '--hide-main-window' '--non-interactive' '--parent-window-id' '56623107' '-o' 'Synaptic::closeZvt=true' '--progress-str' 'Please wait, this can take some time.' '--finish-str' 'Update is complete' '--set-selections-file' '/tmp/tmpojath7' as user root.
Updates ran fine when I first installed ubuntu two months ago.......but somethings changed since then. Are these instructions to run in terminal, in the above error message? If so, I'm new to using linux and terminal commands and will need "terminal for dummies" approach
firefox 11.0 in Ubuntu 11.10 lost capability to display videos during update manager
- date: April 17, 2012
I have Ubuntu versions 10.10 and 11.10 in partitions on an 80 GB internal hard drive. On initial installations (at widely different times, of course) they both played firefox news videos. Finally, after many updates, 10.10 quit...the video window opened but no rotating circle and no error message...that didn't bother me much because I could go to 11.10 if I really wanted to see that video. A couple of days ago after much nagging from 11.10, I finally relented and let it update... and now it behaves exactly like 10.10. The update contained something like 40 items and I have no idea what caused what. I saved all the *.log files that modified on that day, but there's a slew of them and I don't know which ones might give useful info. If there is a way out other than reinstalling 11.10 without updates, I'd appreciate any help.

[SOLVED] Ubuntu problem with font size on web pages.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 9, 2010
I installed "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx" Amd_64 version on my dell vostro 1015. My screen resoultion is set to 1366*768(16.9) by default because the font size on web pages looks too small. I am not able to understand if it is font size too small or is it a resolution set too high. I am trying to fix this because I find very difficult to read web pages specifically. I tried to zoom in on firefox, but that is not permanent solution.
I want to decrease my screen resolution. I opened drop down and I find following
None of the above resolution suits my laptop. The monitor type identified by Ubuntu says Laptop Monitor.
How do I fix this.

where is the keyring manager on ubuntu 13.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 5, 2013
I have a encrypted partition which is mounted by nautilus when I click on the proper device on the left panel. When I do that it ask me the pass-phrase and it give an option to forgot it immediately or to use it until the end of session or forever.
Usually I choose "forgot immediately", but last week I made a mistake and choose the option to store the password forever. Now The encrypted partition can be open with a single click on it. No passwords are asked anymore.
I want change it. I want the pass-phrase would be asked again every time I open the encrypted partition.
How to do that ?
I have a lot of passwords saved in the keyring, so removing "~/.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring" is not an option.
thanks in advance for any ideas,
Ubuntu Studio default file manager?

In Ubuntu 12.04 the default file manager looks decent, what is it called?
Would Dolphin or Nautilus be worth a try? And can I go back to default later?
Ubuntu Linux Alternative to Windows 'Task Manager'
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2012
I have been using Ubuntu for a while now, but noticed lately that more and more demand is being placed on my CPU. With all the updates and changes, much more is being added to my system, and at a much quicker pace than I could keep up with, and especially to keep my Ubuntu clean, organized and efficient... I was wondering if - as a starting point - there is an application in Ubuntu similar to 'Task Manager' in Windows that would allow me to view what on earth is going on in the background, why am I hearing my HD working all the time, and whether I would be able to view daemons, scripts, etc... running and perhaps shut the ones that I dont need.
Any help or tips are highly appreciated. Also feel free to refer me to any good reading material on the subject.
Skype on Ubuntu 13.04 + Task Manager
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 12, 2013
I just started using Linux OS again and am running with Ubuntu 13.04. Please forgive me for my noobness...
While running skype or I suppose this can work with any program but skype to be specific for this question. When I minimize skype I don't know where to re-open after I minimize it. Unless someone sends me a message then I can click on the pop up window. Is there something that puts Skype such how drop box is in the task bar up above ?
This brings me to question, how do I know which programs are running ? I go to cmd prmpt and do
but I just get a list of ALL proccesses.
Any advice is appreciated.
