Not a direct answer to your question (though I agree you need to fix grub) but there is some background experience about your problem here in the links below that people have already passed, asked and been answered: Installing Ubuntu on a Pre-Installed Windows 8 (64-bit) System (UEFI Supported) How can I install Windows after I've installed Ubuntu? ...

First of all, windows need to be in the first/main partition in a multi boot disk. Check with a partition tool if windows still there, if yes, see if it's on first partition, if yes reinstall the bootloader. You are probaly using grub, it is easy to be installed, just search on internet

You can do this via PAM configuration. For example, if you use XScreenSaver, you'd edit /etc/pam.d/xscreensaver and change the @include common-auth line. Rather than repeat all the details, I'll point you to my answer to Set sudo password differently from login one. The procedure is almost exactly the same, except that you'll be editing the PAM config for ...

Out of date book, as noted. So to make the examples work with more modern linux, where it says something like cat music.wav > /dev/dsp change it to: cat music.wav | aplay And you've just done your first porting of code! Win! Feel free to send the book author patches. :-)

You have installed qt5-qmake, but your Qt Creator is looking for the Qt4 version of qmake. You can either install qt4-qmake or add your Qt5 qmake executable to Qt Creator in Tools -> Options -> Build & Run -> Qt Versions. /edit after an update in the question: Qt Chooser is a tool to automatically select the correct Qt binaries depending on its ...

If you take one of the urls that gives a 404 error and put it in your browser, you will see that you get the 404 error as well. This might be temporary, or a server error so what you can do is search up the directory structure until your url is http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/. There you will see subdirectories for lucid (10.04), precise (12.04), ...

I found my solution here: not logging certain errors I just had to add this line at the top of /etc/rsyslog.conf: :msg, contains, "nouveau" ~ It seems to be working fine.

You can block the errors from showing by using grep -v like this: grep -v 'nouveau 0000:01:00.0' [your log file] | less You could also make a script that whipes the log files for you and let it run at bootup. make scriptfile: sudo nano /root/cleanlogs The script would look something like this: #!/bin/bash grep -v 'nouveau 0000:01:00.0' ...

It is also possible to force installation of a package even though it overwrites files from a different package. Of course it is usually not recommended, etc., but the tools give you the power to do it. sudo dpkg --force-overwrite -i /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_amd64.deb

I found this response in the Linux Mint forums: The reason for having these errors is that Mint 15 "Olivia" is no longer supported since January 2014. Mint 15 is obsolete and no longer supported. You need to either upgrade to Mint 17 if your system is not too old or install Mint 13. Both versions are LTS versions which stands for Long Term Support: Linux ...

For mint mate 17, you can set the default brightness by following steps: sudo apt-get install dconf-tools Applications -> System Tools -> dconf tools, search for backlight, find and change following options: brightness-ac: brightness when use AC powser (charged), brightness-dim-battery: brightness when use battery (not charged),

Short answer: yes, you can do this. I have my (Fedora) desktop set up this way, each monitor is an independent display. It is the same 'desktop', in the X sense, but there are some limitations to typical desktop functionality with this setup versus the 'single desktop spread over two monitors' configuration. [For example, you can't drag a window from one ...

You can safely delete all files ending in .gz or .<number>. You might want to adjust your logrotate configuration. Please paste the contents of /etc/logrotate.conf and/or /etc/logrotate.d/*.conf (star means any file) so we can help further.

Looks like a bunch of log files are out of control; kern.log, message, ufw.log, and syslog. Take a look inside them to see what is filling them up with so much information. Since ufw.log is so big, it's likely a firewall related problem. Note the the .1 files are rotated logs; they are the old log files that were moved out of the way for new ones. Once ...

I have tested your answers, and in fact, rewriting this line fixes the issue: // cflag = tty->termios->c_cflag; cflag = tty->termios.c_cflag; The vizzini.ko driver compiles fine, and it can be loaded with insmod.

Scribus is an open-source desktop publishing program and the closest analogue to Publisher. It supports importing Publisher files in the development branch (that is, the next major release). LibreOffice Draw is also comparable. Its focus is as more of a vector graphics editor than a DTP tool, but it does have many DTP features too. It also supports ...

Sure you can, you just will have to be sure about the priorities of those disks - in the BIOS, simply which OS (from which disk) you want to boot at first, well then you even have an option of dual or booting more than 2 OSs in a single boot loader if you configure it.

Try the following: set your desired value with amixer set Master [100 | any other value] or amixer set 'Master',99957 (as you have found out for yourself) then force store the setting of the volume control with alsactl store(make sure you are root)

On AskUbuntu there is this question which may of help The repositories for EOL Ubuntu releases are archived, so http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/ was moved to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/ (raring-updates is here) - basically all you should need to do is replace archive.ubuntu.com & security.ubuntu.com in the software sources ...

You can remove it by this command: sudo apt-get --purge autoremove oracle-java*-installer Replace * with your version.

Since NTFS doesn't support Linux permissions, your only option is to enable execution of all files on the partition. This must be done when you mount the partition. mkdir ntfs sudo mount -o fmask=000 /dev/sda2 ntfs

Support for Ubuntu 13.04 officially ended on January 27, 2014. Wikpedia entry on Raring Ringtail. Presumably, you would want to update to a supported version... The current version of Linux Mint is 17.

I'm pretty sure the following will work: sudo dd if=path/to/image.iso of=/dev/diskx bs=4M Breakdown: sudo to run the command as root (bad things happen when someone does this to disk0) dd copies data from a file to a block device (or vice versa) if=path/to/image.iso tells dd where to get data from of=/dev/diskx tells it where to put the data.

I think the problem is that you don't want the first two lines you put in /etc/apt/sources.list, namely deb http://llvm.org/apt/trusty/ llvm-toolchain-trusty main deb-src http://llvm.org/apt/trusty/ llvm-toolchain-trusty main I suspect these correspond to 3.5 (trunk). You can verify this by running apt-cache policy pkg1 ... pkgn where the pkgs run ...

You can try accessing the system in runlevel 3 for multiuser command line mode and try to clean some space on the / filesystem, while you are at it, it'll be a great idea to get some unused space (if any) for some extra swap. If you already are in runlevel 3, then clean the system at runlevel 1 which will load basic services for you to run diagnostics and/or ...

Considering this problem is affecting the console as well as login, it appears the system-wide settings have changed. The key to getting around this is editing the keyboard settings by booting with a live cd/usb. You can then edit the following file: /etc/default/keyboard and replacing "ru" with "en": XKBLAYOUT="en" A similar question & ...

If you are a first-time user of Linux, it's preferable to start with Ubuntu, it is more user-friendly and it will let you run the system from the live CD for you to get a taste of it and then choose whether to install it or not. Besides, there's always a good idea to check the distro's HCL (Hardware Compatibility List), in this case Linux Mint has its own: ...

It looks like from the memory test that your RAM is damaged. If this is the case (which it looks like), new module(s?) should fix the problem.

Did you change your home directory permissions recursively? i.e. (replace 'user1' with your user name) chown -R user1:user1 /home/user1/ Note: If you did not already know, always be extremely careful when running chown recursively, as it can be very tricky to undo if you change permissions for everything in a directory with a variety of file/directory ...

Extending (but not shrinking) an ext4 partition works without unmounting it: Check that the corresponding entry in the partition table has already the target size (for example by using fdisk). Then it could then be needed to force the OS to reread the partition table with e.g. partprobe from the parted package (for more option, see ...

actually, I just realized that when using a usb3 cable and connecting to a usb2 port on the laptop, the device is found and all the partitions are automatically mounted. The problem I had earlier could be from the usb2 cable which could carry only less power than a usb3 device required. /dev/sdb5 on /media/r/3c45f792-1630-4866-8a33-1534c115f285 type ext4 ...

It seems absolutely normal to have those packages installed. On my system Mint 17 system I have the same. If you think there are libraries left that are no longer needed you can always issue a: sudo apt-get autoremove to get rid of them, but I guess that will not bring you anything. If you have apt-rdepends installed you can can use: apt-rdepends -r ...

First of all, what makes you think skype is not supported? While there are many good reasons not to use it, you can install it on Linux and the desktop environment you use is irrelevant. I've used it many times on Cinnamon for example. Anyway, there are loads of alternatives out there, just search for "linux chat" on your favorite search engine. You haven't ...

There are two kinds of Flash plugins on Linux: NPAPI and PPAPI. Since you copied NPAPI version to place Chrome expects a PPAPI one, it fails to load it.

Okay, I actually feel confident after doing some reading that using dd will do what you want. According to this website you can use dd to create an image of your drive, which is what you want to do.

Parted Magic is very useful, also can do this with a bootable USB or DVD using PartImage on the System Rescue CD (it even comes with the USB boot setup - instructions on the site there).
