    Have you tried booting to the original OS X disks that came with the MacBook, or to a retail version? Use Disk Utiity to repair permissions.

    Im gonna buy a retail disk if this doesnt work as i lost my original one. Thats why im trying through Ubuntu, any ideas?

    Not familiar with Ubuntu, so can't helpt there. OS X 10.6 is available from the Apple online store for $20. You can call them, which in the US is 800-MY-APPLE or also can order online from them.
