Do what the error message tells:

Perform a full file system check on the sda6 partition.

You have to boot an Ubuntu installer on a bootable hard disk or DVD in the "Try Ubuntu without installing" mode and run the fsck command (with appropriate parameters).

Oops, mistyped

You have to boot an Ubuntu installer on a bootable USB stick or DVD in the "Try Ubuntu without installing" mode and run the fsck command (with appropriate parameters).

With what did you have "no success"?

With booting from an installer
or
with selecting the "try Ubuntu without installing" mode
or
with running fsck
or
with something else
?

Denis (denriac) said : #7

It's running fsck probably.

If you want help, then you have to provide information.
Just telling "probably" is not enough.

Besides that, Why have you asked this question in the support area for Sikuli? I do not see any relationship to that package.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Denis for more information if necessary.
