Cannot install kubuntu 11.04-WUBI on Windows 7

    Question

  • When I tried to install Kbuntu 11.04 (WUBI.EXE) in drive-D on Windows 7 platform - Windows 7 installed in drive-C, I received some problem at that time to install the software. I have used 1.0 TB hard disk and partitioned as 6 drivers. I have interested to use Kubuntu software in my system. Please give your suggestions to solve the problem. The problem is as follows (as per the log  file):-

    >>stdout=

  • Installing Kubuntu 7.10 In Virtual PC 2007

    October 22, 2007 — arcanecode

    After last weeks post on Ubuntu 7.10 (http://arcanecode.wordpress.com/2007/10/18/installing-ubuntu-710-under-virtual-pc-2007/), I had several requests for Kubuntu. Since I’m happy to please, here are the step by step instructions for Kubnutu. By the way, I’ve reduced the screen sizes a little to make them fit the flow of the blog, but you can click any of them to see them in full size should you need to make out any of the details.

    If you haven’t already done so, you’ll need to download the latest image of Kubuntu, you can get it fromhttp://www.kubuntu.com/download.php .

    Kubuntu has some of the same issues as Ubuntu under Virtual PC when it comes to graphics and the mouse. When you fire up the VPC with the Kubuntu disk in the drive (or you’ve captured it’s ISO image), you’ll want to move the highlight down to “Start Kubuntu in safe graphics mode”. To fix the mouse, at least for this session, press F6 for boot options, and type in “i8042.noloop” after the –. Once your screen looks like the one below, press Enter to continue.

    k710_001

    Once Kubuntu boots, click the install icon on the desktop to begin the installation process.

    k710_002

    On the Welcome screen, just confirm your language, then press Next.

    k710_003

    In this step you get to play Carmen whats-her-name and do the “Where in the world are you” bit. Select a city in the time zone in which you live, then click Next.

    k710_004

    Now pick your keyboard, and click Next.

    k710_005

    On the disk space screen, just take the defaults and click next.

    k710_006

    OK, now we actually have to do some work, and give Kubuntu some info. Make sure to remember your password, not only will you need it to login but you’ll also need it for any commands that need super user privlidges.

    k710_007

    OK, Kubuntu finally knows everything it needs in order to install so just hit next.

    k710_008

    And wait. And wait. And wait. If you thought Ubuntu took a while to install, just wait for Kubuntu. My experience was a couple of hours, but to be fair I was also playing a couple of Quicktime videos (some of the cool shows fromhttp://www.revision3.com) and testing an openSuse install in another VPC. And I have sloooooooooooow hard disks, so your milage (or kilometers) may vary. But it’ll still take a while.

    About 84% or so into it I got this error. This is similar to the error I got with Ubuntu, just click OK to let it keep going. Oh, and wait some more.

    k710_009

    Yea! It finally finished the install.

    k710_010

    When you get to this screen, just press OK, then reboot Kubuntu. Don’t forget to eject the CD (or release the ISO) during the reboot. But before you press OK, make sure to read the next step!

    OK, time for a tricky part. Pay close attention during the reboot. When you get to the screen that talks about the GRUB menu, press the ESCape key. You should see a screen like this:

    k710_011

    With the top line highlighted, press the e key to edit the command line.

    On the next screen, press the down arrow once to highlight the line that begins in “kernel”, then press e again to edit that line. When the edit screen appears, we need to add the – i8042.noloop to the end of the line. It should look something like:

    k710_012

    Press Enter, then when you return to the screen with “kernel” on it, press ‘b’ (just the letter b) to boot Kubuntu. What this will do is enable the mouse for this session only! Once we get booted, we’ll fix the mouse permanently, so hang on.

    When the login screen appears, enter your user name and password (the ones you entered on the “Who Are You” screen during the installation) and press enter. Now give it a minute while Kubuntu finishes loading.

    OK, now it’s time to fix that pesky mouse issue once and for all. Click on the big K in the lower left (it’s like the Start button in Windows), and go to System, then bring up Konsole.

    k710_013

    Now in the Konsole window, type in

    sudo kate /boot/grub/menu.lst

    and press enter.

    k710_014

    Enter your password when prompted, and you should be in the kate editor. Note you may see a few errors on the terminal window. These can be ignored.

    Once kate is up, scroll to the very bottom of the editor where you’ll find three sections of “title… kernel… “ etc. In the first section, which is the default, we need to edit the kernel line to add:

    – i8042.noloop

    to the end of the line, as you see here. Once done, save it by using File, Save on the menu or clicking the floppy disk. Then exit kate (File, Quit) and exit the terminal window (type exit and press enter, or close by just clicking the x button as you would in Windows).

    k710_015

    And that’s it, you should be good to go and enjoy Kubuntu 7.10 virtually.
