I have the same problem - try to run it with --disable-gpu flag, like google-chrome --disable-gpu also I use three monitors on two nvidia videocards with opened developer tools (I guess this is the reason)

As indicated in Eclipse auto shutdowns when creating new project one workaround to this bug is to change the GTK2 theme in System Preferences -> Application Appearance -> GTK (I personally use Aurora: sudo apt-get install -y gtk2-engines-aurora).

So I finally managed to recover by doing the following mv ~/.config/dconf/user ~/.config/dconf/user.old This makes me loose all my settings, but at least I can log in and now I can attempt at recovering at least some of the settings from the user.old file.

Try lo log in the VM where you installed the guest additions and re-install them using their packaged versions: sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-dkms virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-x11 Finally restart the VM to complete the installation.

We had a similar issue and went through removing (renaming) some related files for the user. It was eventually fixed by removing (renaming) compizconfig-1 in the .cache directory for the affected user.

You need to make sure dbghelp is disabled. winecfg then go to the 'libraries' tab and type 'dbghelp' in the 'New override for library:' box. Click 'Add'. When you do, a warning will appear, accept the warning and then 'edit' your new override to 'disabled', and then hit 'Apply'.

You've hit the following bug that is not fixed yet: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=736323 . Workaround: Find your GTK2 theme config file. For Oxygen it is /usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/gtkrc. Edit the theme config file (as root): change GtkComboBox::appears-as-list from 1 to 0.

The issue is your program don't have access to write to the temporary folder. ls works because it reads the current folder without "saving" anything. find on the other hand "caches" data to the temp folder. If he can't it crash! Check your permissions on the /tmp folder. ls -la /tmp You should get something like this. bookofzeus@askubuntu:~$ ls -la /tmp ...

This is a bug in libtar 1.2.20-3 as patched by Debian and Ubuntu. The original libtar 1.2.20 doesn't show this bug. Providing a target directory that is different from the current directory results in SIGSEGV. This bug can be easily reproduced with the libtar example program : libtar -C /tmp/target_dir -x -z default.vlt

I've finally managed to fix the problem. I've checked so many websites and the bugtracker of Ubuntu Nautilus. Spent the whole day looking for the cause; i'm not even sure if i found the 'real' cause. I even was unable to login again...lol.. :). For the people who are experiencing the same problem; here's what i think is the problem: there were duplicates of ...

If apport has tried to collect the data from the crash, then look in /var/crash Alternatively you might look to see if there is a -dbg package for the application. Try running the app from a terminal with -h - see if there is a debug option Exaile for instance has a debug option, which can be run with exaile --debug Perhaps talk to whoever the ...

This is a known bug. I reported it but they don't seem to be fixing it. They blame it on compiz. It might help if you also comment on the bug or file the bug for compiz in Ubuntu 14.04. I have experienced many bugs in Pitivi. It looks nice on first sight, but OpenShot is a lot more stable...

Check out this post on the Google Chrome Help Forum. However, unlike you, the whole system is hanging. I only post it here because it might help other people who come across your post based on the title you gave it. It looks like the system hanging issue might be something to do with Radeon cards so if you don't have one it might not be relevant to you.

The answer says: /etc/rc.local and not /etc/init.d/rc.local Use Ctrl+Alt+F1 for a terminal. Log in and open /etc/init.d/rc.local: sudo nano /etc/init.d/rc.local Remove this: # Resource file load xrdb ~/.Xresources #End And besides, the line xrdb ~/.Xresources do no not make sense. After that sudo service rc.local restart sudo service lightdm restart ...

Your filesystem is corrupted; backup your data immediately. When your system becomes like the one in the first screenshot; press F to fix the partition. But I'd backup my data first before doing that. If it persists, you can start Ubuntu from a Live CD/USB and open a partition manager and right-click your installed Ubuntu partition and select the check ...

The problem is with ubuntu 13.10's gtk libraries. The global menu that ubuntu has, GTk is not able to use it for its menu options. Hence, as @bogdan said, either use the command UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= ./smartgit.sh or open up the smartgit.sh / smartgithg.sh in your favorite text editor and add the line below right after the comments in the file, ...

The beeps that you are hearing are indications from your computer that there is a hardware problem. Here is a list of the beep codes: http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm Different manufactures have different codes. I would start to diagnose this by checking the RAM first. The memory is usually what breaks. You can test the RAM by booting a Ubuntu live ...

This is a short guide on what to do first when a fresh Ubuntu installation crashes in Virtual Box: Make sure you had enabled VT-x/AMD-V in BIOS. Leave some CPU power for the host (if all cores were assigned, define an execution cap). Leave enough RAM for the host OS (how much depends on the OS and applications running). Install the guest additions. Update ...

I would suspect there is something wrong with a combination of the minimize effect/desktop being redrawn that is causing the crash. If I recall correctly Ctrl+super+d doesn't redraw desktop; it just minimizes everything. Also, you can try disabling window effects. To do this, install compizconfig-settings-manager and find the option to do so there. If ...

So I resolved the issue now, but I did not found a simple solution. I basically did a fresh install of gnome: Used synaptic to remove anything related to gnome, ubuntu-desktop and ubuntu-session (mark for complete removal) Ran "sudo apt-get -f install" to resolve unmet dependencies Ran "sudo apt-get install gnome-shell" to reinstall gnome This did the ...

It is not a problem, lack of an update log means you installed 14.04 as opposed to installing a previous version (say 12.04) and then updating to 14.04.

The error is in the log: Fatal error: cannot allocate memory for the buffer pool As a quick solution you have here 2 options: add more RAM to the server, or decrease the value of innodb-buffer-pool size in the config file: innodb_buffer_pool_size = 10M

Try less /var/log/syslog Press shift-f to go to the end of file and monitor changes like tail -f /var/log/syslog You should see your log file. There must be some garbage on them or maybe size issues that are preventing the Syslog app to view them. So, rename it and try to open the Syslog app again. You should be able to see your new log file.

When a computer is shut off or loses power unexpectedly, it has no chance to finish writing data on its drives, that was only about to be written there. This can leave files and file systems in an inconsistent state. File System Integrity Modern file systems like ext4 (the default in Ubuntu), NTFS (default in Windows), and HPFS+ (default in OS X) can ...
