Hardware Specific / Travelmate B115 Touchpad
« Last post by dhicks on May 20, 2015, 08:12:19 PM »

I'm running Ubermix 2.21 with updates installed on a group of Travelmate B115-M computers.  I've set the touchpad to basic in the BIOS to allow the right-click to work.  We are now seeing a situation where the mouse begins to jump all over the screen.......even with your hand removed completely from the unit.  At times the mouse will settle down enough to try clicking again, but overall, the behavior returns and makes the unit unusable.  Has anyone seen this behavior?

Thanks very much.
General Support / Re: Problems with Ubermix Install

I am trying to install Ubermix on a homebuilt desktop PC.  I have saved the image to a bootable USB SD card and it will boot the box.  But I then only get one option "Install/Configure Ubermix".  When I select that option I get an error message "Waiting for disks to settle..." followed by a reboot, to the same prompt, with the same result.

I got the "waiting for disk to settle" thing too, don't think it's an error. I'm a "newbie" myself, so can't be of too much help, but I had a problem similar to yours trying to install mint 17.1. Booted fine on every PC I tried but would fail to install on 2 machines. Tried video, wifi, blah blah.... Turned out it was a bad installation disk. If you haven't already, you might try to download the ubermix image file again, verify that the checksum is correct, and make a new boot usb.
General Support / grub errors on ubermix 2.21

e: grub-pc: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

I just installed latest ubermix-64 on a Dell Dimension 5150. I keep getting package errores related to grub. I'm guessing they have something to do with the partitions setup for the ubermix recovery system, but I get the error whenever I update, add or remove packages. Is this a real problem, the system boots just as it should, or is there something I can uncheck in synaptic to keep the error from happening? Thanks

Q&A / Cryptographic Hash Values (MD5, Sha1, etc) for ISO is Missing
« Last post by PaulJRichardson on May 09, 2015, 06:11:59 PM »
The ISO image for your alternative (non-USB) install from CD, does not list an MD5, Sha1, etc.

However, most of the downloads DO provide a checksum (or crypto hash) for integrity of downloads.
I actually had a 'bad' download once from one of your images, on another file, relative to that published for the download -> which motivates me to ensure this gets done, for the sake of others ;-)

The ISO I am referring to, is NOT listed at the primary download page (as it is the unrecommended/alternative CD install ISO):

The ISO is listed on this page:
FileName: uber-v2-32-install.iso

Here is the direct download link:

Less important, but perhaps potentially also time-saving, would be another couple minor grammatical/naming repairs, which I've identified below:

OLD (Invalid) Name: Image Writer for Windows
OLD (Invalid) Link:

NEW (Correct) Name: Win32 Disk Imager
NEW (Correct) Link:

... so, now at long last, here (below) are the values that I got, after the completed download for this ISO:

FileName: uber-v2-32-install.iso
MD5: b05b95560d5d1743a3fc3f5400e1d482
SHA-1 [160]: de7a4f2f8fdabb4d952c643aee2a742bf6d2a8b4
CRC32: 26cc3605
SizeHash-32: 0c97d800

Which you may want to publish on the page linking to that file.

Probably has something to do with the script running as root and a missing environment. Instead of sudo, try:

su -c "gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings show-desktop \"['']\"" - user

Should work better.
I have added a line to our script to change some keyboard shortcuts.
If I open a terminal and run
Code: [Select]
sh .network-autostart the changes are made. However on boot/network-disconnect-reconnect the changes don't get made.

Here are the two lines:
Code: [Select]
sudo -u user gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings show-desktop "['']"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings show-desktop "['']" #this is optional but I included it for testing purposes

Other parts of the script work fine on boot. I am thinking it has something to do with how .network-autostart is called. Any thoughts?

This soft it's amazing. It's was developed between teachers, and Computer Science professionals. Kids develops games in 2-3 hs, and it's working great, lots of users adopting it.
It's a great way to introduce kids into programing.

Ubermix is a x68 based ubuntu distribution. If there is a large base of users requesting it, maybe Jim will port it.
But using a system like ubermix is not against the raspberry pi "philosophy" ? It's a computer to build, test, reconfigure, and to analiyze multiple hardware -  software configurations.
Also, RP 1 is very hardware limited. Ubermix 2 or 1.5 will be too slow. I read some reports on RP2 being just good for normal use, but i don't know.

OK, Ubuntu has been released for the Raspberry Pi 2

What are the chances of getting Ubermix for the Raspberry Pi 2?
