Install PIXFrogger in Windows/Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit with Fenix

If you are trying to install PIX Frogger in Ubuntu 32 bit, you should have no problem. If you are trying to install it on Ubuntu 64 bit, however, you will see an error like this:

sudo apt-get install pixfrogger

...

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

 pixfrogger : Depends: fenix but it is not installable

E: Broken packages

 

To resolve this issue, we will download a 64 bit fenix.deb file and install it.

wget http://mirror.ne.gov/ubuntu/pool/universe/f/fenix/fenix_0.92a.dfsg1-3ubuntu2_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i fenix_0.92a.dfsg1-3ubuntu2_amd64.deb

Now you should be set to install PIX Frogger:

sudo apt-get install pixfrogger

Chances are the computer might be running Trend Micro or some other type of anti-virus / firewall application. In my case it was Trend Micro that was not only blocking me from installing Office 2010, but was also blocking me from installing Windows XP Service Pack 3.

You can simply unload trend micro or stop your anti-virus application and then retry and it should work great. If you have problems still you might want to try to boot into safe mode and scan your computer throughly or make sure some other application isn’t blocking access.

 

Blacked out login screen

 You may run across a server that is blacked out on the login screen. You can still login but it makes it difficult finding the username or password fields.

To fix this you should look in the registry at:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors

You will probably notice that all the values or almost all the values have zeros in them. You need to replace these from another server. You can replace these with the values listed below if you don’t mind the colors. Just save the values to a .reg file and import them back in:

How to Fix Ox8007000D Windows 7 Activation Error

While activating Windows is typically a seamless process, occasionally one runs into a snag. The 0x8007000D Windows activation error can cause significant problems if one does not know how to resolve the issue, including being unable to download and install updates, wallpaper removal, and annoying activation notifications. This activation error can likely be caused by many things, however, I believe this one to be the result of not entering the Windows 7 product key and without activating Windows within the 30 day activation window. 

I first came across this issue when I received a call that a user's background had been changed to a black one and there was a message in the bottom right corner stating, “This copy of Windows is not genuine.” So naturally, the first thing I do is attempt to activate Windows. I chose to activate Windows over the Internet and received the following error message: 

“A problem occurred when Windows tried to activate. Error Code 0x8007000D”
