					[00:00] <urlin2u> skin1980, got to search the web, and not compare OS's
[00:01] <w0_> szal: didn't change anything .. I did a quick googlesearch
and tried a program called startup mangager, and when I ran it it showed
my startup res as being what it was before .. also, the options *it*
gives me for resolution don't give me any widescreen res's. =| ?? any
[00:01] <w0_> meaning I did that, and it didn't change haha
[00:01] <szal> [01:54:18] <szal> w0_: and remove the hashtag in front of
the line, otherwise it won't do anything
[00:01] <w0_> I did .. lemme double check
[00:02] <urlin2u> w0_, startup manager is abad idea it will not change
the line default with kernel updates, what release are you running.
[00:03] <jmburgess> Hello I had previously disabled Intel virtualization
support in my BIOS and now I enabled it and I want to install virtualbox
and install a OS X guest. So I have installed vb and when I open up
virtualbox it says I don't have hardware virt enabled
[00:03] <jmburgess> any ideas?
[00:03] <w0_> szal -- ya. it *says* 'GRUB_GFXMODE=1920x1080'
[00:03] <urlin2u> jmburgess, we don't advise on hackentosh.
[00:04] <saquib> mine was A rooted samsung galaxy s5570
=== notapuff is now known as puffin
[00:04] <jmburgess> urlin2u: ok so if I'll try and install another guest
os. is that ok?
[00:04] * puffin tickles new2net.
[00:04] <w0_> szal: don't worry about me .. I'm gonna google for a while.
thx dood!! ;)
[00:04] <szal> w0_: hmm, then I don't know.. VGA code perhaps, though I
believe I've read somewhere that these are supposed to be obsolete when
using Grub2, plus I wouldn't know one for 1920x1080 out of my head
[00:04] <w0_> right on man =)
[00:05] <new2net> I am looking for a tcp replay too for ubuntu.
"tcpreplay" will not work- as it can not figure out the seq#s correctly
(at all).
[00:05] <new2net> 11.04*
[00:05] <devcalais> When I upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10 - will I be able
to keep all my files/settings/applications/everything?
[00:06] <devcalais> Is it just a straight dvd-in-dvd-out upgrade?
[00:06] <_ohm> trying to connect a bluetooth usb dongle, i get a
/dev/ttyUSB0, but i get nothing out of gnome-bluetooth. help?
[00:06] <szal> !oneiric | devcalais

[00:07] <urlin2u> jmburgess, for virtualbox use the oracle download and
the #vbox chanel las well, if needed, and don't patronize me .
[00:07] <KrazyKrivda> My computer does not hibernate properly anymore.
It was working until i `sudo apt-get install hibernate`.. how can i fix
[00:08] <test34> KrazyKrivda, remove it?
[00:08] <KrazyKrivda> test34: but I don't know what it "replaced" it is
removed now, but still doesn work

[00:09] <robin0800> KrazyKrivda, did you purge as well as remove?
[00:09] <KrazyKrivda> robin0800: no i did not
[00:10] <test34> KrazyKrivda, try to also remove "uswsusp"
[00:10] <robin0800> KrazyKrivda, well it might have left configuration
files behind
[00:11] <KrazyKrivda> test34: robin0800: but after i remove these two,
I'm assuming something was originally removed when I installed them, (aka
they must have replaced something else) so is there somethign i shuold
[00:11] <ChesterX> hi, how do i use a .ymp file? (I am trying to fix a
broken avi index with divfix++)
[00:11] <DonJuan> I need help getting Grub fixed for Ubuntu 11.04. I'm
dual booting with Windows 7 and I think Grub got hosed after a Windows
update. I don't even get to the Grub menu, the computer just boots
straight into Windows. I'm currently running off of the Ubuntu LiveCD.
[00:11] <new2net> no tcp replay tool for ubuntu... k
[00:12] <test34> KrazyKrivda, I tried to install it and it didnt ask me
to remove anything
[00:12] <KrazyKrivda> test34: ok, I will give hibernate another try now,
*fingers crossed*.. i'll be back either way
[00:12] <robin0800> KrazyKrivda, I have never had to install anything to
make this laptop hibernate
[00:13] <urlin2u> DonJuan,
[00:14] <daffy_> hello, I have a original problem the search bar in the
software center on 11.10 is misssing
[00:14] <urlin2u> daffy_, #ubuntu+1
[00:14] <test34> robin0800, it seems like he installed something and it
broke the hibernate function.. "If It's Not Broken - Don't Fix It"
[00:14] <KrazyKrivda> test34: robin0800: you both are awesome! thakn
you.. all works well, although much slower, at least functional
[00:15] <daffy_> im reporting it to launchpad at the moment
[00:15] <urlin2u> !tmi
[00:15] <ubottu> Um thanks... We *really* did not need to know that...
[00:16] <rww> urlin2u: ?
[00:16] <KrazyKrivda> how about.. my computer "suspends" and if a movie
is playing it will often not resume properly.. only the cursor will be
visible.. any fixes?
[00:16] <urlin2u> rww, sorry just uh well.
[00:16] <guldun> hey guys, trying to run Photoshop CS5 in Ubuntu 11.04, I
have googled for hours and cant find a fix, I keep getting the following
error: Runtime Error! The program has requested the Runtime in an unusual
way... really need this working asap for work
[00:16] <DonJuan> urlin2u: Thanks, nifty looking little tool. Let's see
if it works.
[00:16] <Dollz> what does this mean ? chroot SSH users !?
[00:17] <Dollz> and is it important ?
[00:17] <daffy_> i hhad installed i think cs4 in wine and it ran ok
[00:17] <Dollz> because I'm installing something that will prevent
enabling chroot SSH users again if I said no now
[00:18] <urlin2u> DonJuan, sounds like you got the sp1 in windows, the
reload of the mbr should work just read caerefully.
[00:18] <guldun> daffy_ I have tried CS5, CS5 portable, CS5.5... gonna
try CS4 now hopefully it works -.-
[00:18] <guldun> daffy_: does the installer work?
[00:18] <Dollz> I will enable it
[00:20] <Dr_Willis> chrooting a user would 'lock down' the user account
to some defree Dollz
[00:20] <Dr_Willis> degree
[00:20] <azbr00> guldun: Have you had a look at this?
[00:20] <Dr_Willis> Scary admining a system and not knowing what its
doing.. :)
[00:20] <Dollz> Dr_Willis: Ah , there is no users except me anyway :D
[00:21] <Dr_Willis> Dollz: unless you have a reason to lock them down..
i wouldent be bothering.
[00:21] <Dollz> Dr_Willis: i'm the one and only
[00:21] <Dr_Willis> Dollz: and you are doing all this stuff because?
[00:21] <guldun> azbr00: I actually followed that step by step and im
still getting the error
[00:21] <Dollz> Dr_Willis: ehm .. I'm creating a website for video
transcoding :)
[00:21] <Dr_Willis> Dollz: for you self?
[00:22] <Dr_Willis> Dollz: and whats asking about chrooting users?
[00:22] <Dollz> Dr_Willis: it's ISPConfig
[00:22] <Dollz> Dr_Willis: it seems a great alternative to webmin /
[00:22] <Dr_Willis> Dollz: for a single user system.. i dont really see
the point of using webmin/.cpanel.
[00:23] <Dr_Willis> what are you really configiging/admining.... :)
[00:23] <Dollz> Dr_Willis: yes , if that single user is good at linux :)
[00:23] <Dr_Willis> what are you really admining... you install apache..
and what do you really need to change on it?..
[00:24] <Dr_Willis> sort of like 'building a 3 story garrage to just
change your oil sounds like...'
[00:24] <Dr_Willis> :)
[00:24] <BourneSSH> how do i kill a process from another 'tty' ?
[00:24] <Dollz> hmm , I don't know :D .. but some day for sure I will
need to change something
[00:24] <kadoban> BourneSSH: kill or killall
[00:24] <BourneSSH> whats the command to list running processes ?
[00:25] <Dollz> ps
[00:25] <Dollz> ps aux
[00:25] <Dollz> :)
[00:25] <Dollz> ps -ef !?
[00:25] <Dollz> BourneSSH: only running?
[00:25] <Dollz> ps aux will show all of them
[00:26] <khkjh> top ? then 'k'
[00:27] <BourneSSH> heres my problem, i am running a python app and it
has taken over the display and i cant kill it
[00:27] <BourneSSH> so i switched to a tty and i am trying to get it
[00:27] <edbian> BourneSSH: kill -9 <pid>
[00:27] <Dollz> format your drive might solve the problem
[00:27] <Dr_Willis> BourneSSH: thats one wya I guess. :) or alt-f2 and
run xkill
[00:27] <Dollz> :D
[00:28] <BourneSSH> <pid> ?
[00:28] <DangerOnTheRangr> BourneSSH: Process ID
[00:28] <Dollz> process id
[00:28] <Dr_Willis> job controll basics. each process has an id.    :)
[00:28] <edbian> BourneSSH: process id of the python program
[00:28] <Dr_Willis> ps ax | grep python
[00:28] <Dr_Willis> should show the pid
[00:29] <DangerOnTheRangr> Dr_Willis: Multiple Python programs often run
at once on a default Ubuntu install, you know :)
=== napster is now known as Guest1019
[00:29] <Dr_Willis> yep :) i dident say it show the rght one.. just the
pid.. somewhere. :)
=== user is now known as vincentz
[00:29] <edbian> ps -e | grep python
[00:29] <edbian> This is linux
[00:29] <findit> what does it mean if ubuntu 10.04 wants to check my
disks every time i boot?
[00:29] <DangerOnTheRangr> findit: Probably you performed an unclean
[00:29] <szal> findit: business as usual
[00:29] <findit> i am also experiencing high load average, and it looks
like my cpu spends a lot of time in wait.
[00:29] <edbian> findit: It means you should investigate the disks
further :)
[00:29] <Dr_Willis> findit:   it may be its failing to unmount them
properly when shutting down.
[00:30] <Dr_Willis> or hd failing issues.. or other odditines.
[00:31] <BourneSSH> quit
[00:31] <edbian> BourneSSH: it's /quit
[00:31] <BourneSSH> lol how do i close irssi ?
[00:35] <chaospsychex> u gotta love 'tty'
[00:35] <chaospsychex> if that would of been windows i would of have to
of rebooted
[00:35] <Dr_Willis> alt-ctrl-del and hope taskmanager works.. :)
[00:36] <chaospsychex> yeah, if it comes up
[00:36] <chaospsychex> or alt-tab or something
[00:36] <Guest25323> How do you get to the Unity task launcher, when a
window has pushed it off the edge?
[00:36] <compdoc> is it possible to write several files to an iso file?
[00:37] <Dr_Willis> compdoc: you mean edit an iso files contents?
[00:37] <compdoc> create an iso file using several files on a desktop
[00:37] <Dr_Willis> theres tools to make iso files yes...
[00:38] <chaospsychex> as i was asking, why is it when i do 'sudo apt-get
upgrade python' it doesn't see 3.1? i have 2.6 installed
[00:38] <Dr_Willis> k3b, gcombust, gtoaster
[00:38] <Dr_Willis> !burn
[00:38] <ubottu> CD/DVD burning software: k3b (KDE), brasero (GNOME),
gnomebaker, xcdroast, wodim (command-line) | To burn ISO files, see
[00:38] <PatrickC_TP> how do I install the kre7?
[00:38] <PatrickC_TP> jre7*
[00:39] <iwantfroyo> @chaospsychex I'm pretty sure it's because 2.6 is
the default version. You can install python 3.1 from the Software Center,
but don't remove python 2.6. It'll mess stuff up.
[00:39] <Dr_Willis> You can have python 2.6 and 3.0 both installed at teh
same time i imagine chaospsychex is why.
[00:39] <Dr_Willis> !java | PatrickC_TP
[00:39] <ubottu> PatrickC_TP: To install a Java runtime on Ubuntu on
10.04 LTS and newer, see http://goo.gl/zwOip - For the Sun Java products
and browser plugin, search for the sun-java6- packages in the !partner
repository on Lucid (which must be enabled), or !multiverse repository on
older releases.
[00:39] <sdsds> yeahh
[00:39] <sdsds> ubuntu!
=== wilson_ is now known as Guest25385
[00:41] <chaospsychex> why will it mess stuff up if i remove 2.6?
[00:41] <chaospsychex> ubuntu uses 2.6 for stuff?
[00:41] <PatrickC_TP> Dr_Willis: I need sub-java.. and I tried to install
sun-java7-jre, but it didn't work
[00:41] <PatrickC_TP> this computer is offline though, so I can't use
[00:42] <iwantfroyo> @chaospsychex Yes. Programs written with python
might freak out. Ubuntu Forums has a lot of threads dealing with people
uninstalling 2.6.
[00:42] <chaospsychex> when i do 'python' from the terminal it's 2.6
[00:42] <cmdbbq> ubuntu is freezing up on me, like the whole shebang. I
can't even swithc to a virtual terminal. seems to happen when firefox
tries to connect to the net, but i think it has to do with video
[00:42] <chaospsychex> how do i invoke 3.1 ?
[00:43] <Pici> chaospsychex: python3 is the binary name
[00:43] <cmdbbq> please help!
[00:43] <iwantfroyo> @chaospsychex I'm not sure, but I think it's
[00:43] <yeats> cmdbbq: can you ssh in from another machine?
[00:43] <chaospsychex> yup its 'python3.1'
[00:44] <chaospsychex> ne1 in here use 'guake' ?
[00:44] <scorchgeek> chaospsychex: I have
[00:45] <chaospsychex> i freaking love it
[00:45] <iwantfroyo> @chaospsychex I've heard of it. I'm thinking of
[00:45] <chaospsychex> it's nice
[00:45] <puffin> What is it?
[00:45] <elgruntox> Hello! im trying to get my external monitor to
display its proper resolution (1080p) and for some reason ubuntu is
tellin me that the max res is 1024x768
[00:45] <elgruntox> how do i fix this :(
[00:45] <scorchgeek> I used it for a while, but I find it kind of
unnecessary because I always have multiple terminals anyway and can just
bounce to the corner of my screen to get a new one
[00:45] <cmdbbq> yeats: yes
[00:45] <scorchgeek> elgruntox: fix what?
[00:45] <yeats> cmdbbq: what does 'top' say?
[00:45] <iwantfroyo> @chaospsychex If it's the pop-down terminal thing, I
just use ctrl-alt-t instead. Opens up the terminal.
[00:45] <chaospsychex> http://guake.org/
[00:46] <cmdbbq> yeats: although the machine is not frozen right now. I
will reproduce the bug and see
[00:46] <elgruntox> scorchgeek: the. resolution
[00:46] <chaospsychex> what do you mean 'bounce' to the corner of your
screen ?
[00:46] <elgruntox> its a 1920x1080 monitor
[00:46] <scorchgeek> chaospsychex: there's a compiz thing that makes
corners "active"
[00:46] <Aszurom> So, I just installed 11.04. Got flgrx installed for my
ATI 6970 card, and oddly Compiz effects don't seem to be available. I'm
sorta newbish so I assume I'd enable them under "Appearance" but visual
effects tab isn't present
[00:46] <scorchgeek> and you can have them start a program
[00:46] <chaospsychex> oh i don't have compiz, thats the cube thing aint
[00:46] <scorchgeek> chaospsychex: and lots of other effects and options
[00:46] <scorchgeek> like that :)
[00:46] <iwantfroyo> @Aszurom install ccsm
[00:47] <scorchgeek> elgruntox: sorry, I didn't see your first post
[00:47] <elgruntox> its okay
[00:47] <iwantfroyo> @chaospsychex Compiz controls the cube thing. It
controls a lot of other stuff too.
[00:47] <chaospsychex> compiz is a WM?
[00:47] <Aszurom> iwantfroyo, thanks
[00:47] <chaospsychex> replaces meta-city when you install it ?
[00:47] <Aszurom> I'm shocked it's not defaultly installed
[00:47] <cmdbbq> yeats: the machine is frozen, Xorg is using 100% cpu
[00:47] <scorchgeek> elgruntox: as far as a solution, the only thing I
could tell you is to update your graphics driver, but I don't know if
that will help
[00:47] <iwantfroyo> @chaospsychex no it isn't. It draws the desktop
(along with nautilus). [I think]
[00:48] <scorchgeek> I also don't remember how to do that
[00:48] <elgruntox> scorchgeek: how would I go about doing that for my
intel 3000
[00:48] <elgruntox> i thought ubuntu wouldve asked me to update or
[00:48] <yeats> cmdbbq: memory full? swapping? high system load?
[00:48] <Dr_Willis> compiz is a window manager,. you use compiz or
metacity.. :L)
[00:48] <iwantfroyo> @Aszurom if you give ccsm to people who don't know
what they're doing, they usually break it. If you're using Unity, be very
careful. Very easy to break it.
[00:49] <iwantfroyo> @Dr_Willis I thought Ubuntu's wm was gnome-wm. I
didn't know compiz could act as one.
[00:49] <scorchgeek> yes, last time I played with it I managed to make
windows have no title bar, I fixed that and you couldn't drag them around
the screen
[00:49] <scorchgeek> fortunately a bit of googling fixed it
[00:49] <chaospsychex> what was the problem?
[00:49] <scorchgeek> for some reason these features are all plugins that
can be turned off
[00:49] <Dr_Willis> iwantfroyo: compiz is a window manager, as is
metacity.. theres no 'gnome-wm' its 'metacity' by default for no
eyecandy. compiz for all effects
[00:49] <puffin> Can someone help me configure lm_sensors?
[00:49] <partybros> dirty ole ubuntu, so hot
[00:49] <puffin> sensors-detect doesn't find any sensors.
=== partybros is now known as Tbay_JohnnyBlaze
[00:50] <Aszurom> iwantfroyo, yeah it's just that without compiz enabled
for some reason my windows feel chuggy moving them around
[00:50] <cmdbbq> yeats: no, no swap in use, average amount of memory in
use. system load average.
[00:50] <iwantfroyo> @Dr_Willis If you go into gconf-editor, the same
area that lists gnome-panel as the panel lists gnome-wm as the wm.
[00:50] <Tbay_JohnnyBlaze> yo yo yo im reppin tbay yo
[00:50] <iwantfroyo> @Dr_Willis I think it's a part of Gnome
[00:50] <Tbay_JohnnyBlaze> reppin hard
[00:50] <yeats> cmdbbq: so I guess it is just the X server freaking out
[00:51] <doodmang> how can I check if I have a bluetooth antenna in my
laptop through ubuntu?
[00:51] <chaospsychex> how do i use the 'cube' thing of compiz? what do i
[00:51] <iwantfroyo> @Dr_Willis Actually I think you're right. Gnome-wm
must control the theme. Sorry.
[00:51] <scorchgeek> the same as to switch virtual desktops
[00:51] <scorchgeek> but you have to set it up in ccsm first
[00:51] <xangua> chaospsychex: if you use natty, there is a guide on
omg!ubuntu! blog
[00:51] <doodmang> chaospsychex, you can use Ctrl Alt Left or Right
[00:52] <iwantfroyo> @chaospsychex Install ccsm, then activate "Rotate
Cube" and "Desktop Cube"
[00:52] <urlin2u> chaospsychex, be careful find a web link for
[00:52] <iwantfroyo> @chaospsychex to trigger it, switch desktops with
[00:52] <chaospsychex> ctrl alt left,right isnt a cube
[00:52] <Tbay_JohnnyBlaze> #list
[00:52] <chaospsychex> its 4 2d windows
[00:53] <iwantfroyo> @chaospsychex you have to activate it in ccsm.
[00:53] <cmdbbq> yeats: would there be some way to get back to the
default xserver configuration?
[00:53] <chaospsychex> ok installing ccsm

[00:54] <usr13> Aszurom: It's cool and new
[00:54] <doodmang> chaospsychex, like Desktop Wall and the other
workspace changing effects
[00:54] <Aszurom> iwantfroyo, what's AWN? I'm newb
[00:55] <puffin> Having trouble configuring lm-sensors, anyone around to
[00:55] <iwantfroyo> @Aszurom It's a dock like Mac OSX has. Alternatives
include Cairo-dock (most like OSX) and Docky.

[00:57] <iwantfroyo> chaospsychex, If you look for compiz in Synaptic,
you can get more plugins that well let you do stuff like make windows
burn up when they close.
[00:58] <ThatNeoKid> hey neo, im neo
[00:58] <ThatNeoKid> stop stealing my neo
[00:58] <xangua> !ot | ThatNeoKid
[00:58] <ubottu> ThatNeoKid: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for
all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for
other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!
[00:58] <chaospsychex> iwantfroyo: sounds sick
[00:58] <iwantfroyo> chaospsychex, window snap is what happens when you
bring a window close to an edge. The borders light up with yellow, and
you can make a window fit perfectly into half a screen, or full screen by
bumping it on the top.
[01:00] <photon> windows burning up when they close? sounds just like my
real last home.
[01:01] <iwantfroyo> photon, it's an effect. You can also make them
explode, trickle, etc.
[01:01] <chaospsychex> omg cairo dock is SICK!
[01:01] <ionite> hi. anyways to disable unity?
[01:01] <photon> iwantfroyo: is this installed by default in compiz?
[01:01] <urlin2u> !classic | ionite
[01:01] <ubottu> ionite: The default interface in Ubuntu 11.04 is !Unity.
To switch back to regular !GNOME: log out, click your username, click the
Session box at the bottom of the screen, and select "Ubuntu Classic".
[01:02] <iwantfroyo> photon: No. Search Synaptic for compiz, and you
should find a package with a name similar to compiz-plugins (can't
[01:02] <photon> iwantfroyo: ok
[01:02] <photon> thanks
[01:02] <iwantfroyo> photon: It'll give you a lot of other cool stuff,
[01:02] <iwantfroyo> chaospsychex: You might also want to check out AWN
(avant-window-navigator in software center), if you get tired of the zoom
effect and small icons.
[01:03] <noah> hey
[01:03] <iwantfroyo> noah, welcome.
=== winut_ is now known as winut
[01:04] <noah> I was wondering if there is an easy way to install an xfce
theme on xubuntu
[01:04] <iwantfroyo> noah, can't you install them via Synaptic?
[01:04] <cmdbbq> so, xserver is panicking when i launch firefox and,
although I can ssh in whille the machine is frozen, i can effect only
limited change, ie the shutdown command has no apparent effect.
[01:04] <noah> I havent tried
[01:05] <iwantfroyo> @noah That's probably the best way. I don't know how
to install external themes, since I don't use XFCE, but Synaptic should
add a few themes.
[01:05] <noah> I extract them (ive only tried once) and I just keep
extracting, the package seems to be stuck as a tar.gz or as just .tar
[01:05] <chaospsychex> iwantfroyo: i installed the extra compiz plugins,
how do i configure them or turn them on ?
[01:05] <elgruntox> well poo so much for ubuntu just working for me
[01:05] <ionite> hi. is ubuntu heavy for a net book atom processory with
only 2gb of ram?
[01:05] <elgruntox> wish i could display my damn native resolution
[01:06] <xangua> noah: both xfce and gnome use gtk
[01:06] <iwantfroyo> chaospsychex, they should turn on by themselves.
Just go into ccsm, and look around.
[01:06] <noah> ok
[01:06] <iwantfroyo> chaospsychex, You should have a few new sections,
and more window management options and effects.
[01:06] <chaospsychex> yeah i see it
[01:07] <noah> Does anyone know an easy way to patch a broadcom B43
(chipset 43:12) driver for aircrack?
[01:07] <urlin2u> ionite, should not be thats what I'm using.
[01:07] <aeon-ltd> ionite: yes, but ubuntu classic less so, lubuntu or
xubuntu would be better
[01:07] <xangua> noah: you won't get aircrack support here
[01:07] <noah> where then?
[01:07] <noah> nvm, the aircrack website got some channels
[01:07] <aeon-ltd> ionite: anything processing or graphic heavy
(compiz/unity) would cause some slowdowns,
[01:07] <ionite> aeon-ltd: lubuntu and xubuntu are XFCE? what about kDE?
why would ubuntu be heavy for a netbook?
[01:08] <elgruntox> anyone else have issues with intel 3000 and external
[01:08] <Dr_Willis> lubuntu is LXDE ionite
[01:08] <iwantfroyo> ionite, Unity might be, but it'll probably default
you into Gnome Classic, which should work fine. If it doesn't default you
into there, you should probably consider trying it anyways.
[01:08] <matttheguy> hi guys is this the write room to get help with
Ubuntu? I'm having trouble connecting to my wireless network.
[01:08] <Dr_Willis> ionite: my netbook was able to run kde and gnome
just fine. some heavy eyecandy effects might bog it down a bit. but it
did work decently well.
[01:09] <iwantfroyo> ionite, lubuntu is LXDE, xubuntu is XFCE, kubuntu is
KDE. Ubuntu's default DE is Gnome with the Unity shell, which is a little
heavy for older/weaker systems.
[01:09] <Dr_Willis> ionite: for the lightest desktop = lubuntu.
[01:09] <ionite> so i guess ubuntu is not for me..
[01:09] <yeats> ionite: I run regular ubuntu on a netbook without any
problems - FYI
[01:09] <urlin2u> ionite, those are opinions your getting not actual use
I have that set up with unity and the cube runs sbapy.
[01:09] <Dr_Willis> ionite: ubuntu ran fine on my netbook.
[01:09] <urlin2u> snappy*
[01:09] <Dr_Willis> ionite: only real issue was watching HD video files.
that was a bit much for it.
[01:09] <ionite> does lubuntu gets the same support in channel ubuntu?
[01:10] <iwantfroyo> ionite, It works perfectly fine, even on the normal
Ubuntu installation (it'll put you into Gnome without the Unity shell,
which is fast, and in my opinion, better)
[01:10] <xangua> so the answer is try it yourself......
[01:10] <Dr_Willis> ionite: the layout of programs and menus are
diffent. but its   supported in #lubuntu mainly. or here.
[01:10] <iwantfroyo> ionite, If you want something really fast, try
[01:10] <elgruntox> ionite: just dont use an external monitor!!
[01:10] <urlin2u> elgruntox, wrong.
[01:10] <xangua> iwantfroyo: if you want amazingly fast use terminal ;)
[01:10] <elgruntox> right!
[01:10] <ionite> so i'll just off my unity and 3d settings right?
[01:10] <Dr_Willis> I imagine lubuntu will get more use by more people in
the future as the backlash against gnome3 and unity grows :)
[01:11] <photon> I HATE UNITY.
[01:11] <photon> had to be said.
[01:11] <iwantfroyo> xangua, I've used cli exclusively on Arch. It really
is nice, but I like being able to see the Ubuntu Forums pictures.
=== quu|away is now known as Quutar
[01:11] <valorin> I LOVE UNITY.
[01:11] <valorin> had to be said.
[01:11] <Dr_Willis> photon: its a work in progress.. in the 11.10
release - its gaining some nice features.
[01:12] * photon strongly disagrees with valorin, but respects his/her
[01:12] <iwantfroyo> photon, Unity is a relatively new project. If you
want to see a really beautiful Unity, try Oneiric (11.10). Can't
guarantee stability, however. It's in beta.
[01:12] <ionite> Dr_Willis: what's bad about gnom3 and unity?
[01:12] <Dr_Willis> ionite: forceing me to 'work' in ways i dont want
to. :)
[01:13] <ionite> so ubuntu have got a obstacle now which is unity?
[01:13] <Dr_Willis> and lots of little quirks...
[01:13] <iwantfroyo> ionite, There's nothing wrong with them. They just
use a lot of graphics resources.
[01:13] <ionite> iwantfroyo: i'm only with 256 mb.
[01:13] <photon> iwantfroyo: hmm ok
[01:13] * valorin strongly disagrees with photon, but respects his/her
[01:13] <Evollana> Jesus fucking Christ Ubuntu so FUCKING MEGA sucks.
Unity is a damn JOKE. Use Debian or Arch Linux!!!
[01:13] <iwantfroyo> ionite, graphics memory?
[01:13] <valorin> :)
[01:13] <Evollana> suck my cock faggots
[01:13] <Evollana> kick
[01:13] <Evollana> kick
[01:13] <FloodBot1> Evollana: Please don't flood; use
http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.
[01:13] <Dr_Willis> ionite:   when you have 30+ yrs of using systems..
and then suddendly they change things for ways that dont seem to make
things any better.. its an issue.
[01:14] <W3ird_N3rd> could I suggest somewhere what compiling options
should be used for software in the Ubuntu repo's? maybe I should use
brainstorm for that?
[01:14] <photon> Dr_Willis++
[01:14] <chaospsychex> iwantfroyo: i do i invoke the 3dwindow ?
[01:14] * racho disagrees with valorin and photon, but respect their
opinions while working in G-Shell
[01:14] <ionite> Dr_Willis: alright... sounds not very friendly
[01:14] <Dr_Willis> ionite: depends on what you m ean by friendly. :)
thats a vague term - always has been
[01:14] <urlin2u> Dr_Willis, it is a opinion.
[01:14] <yurgt1_> hola a todos, alguien en español?
[01:14] <iwantfroyo> ionite, They're not very customizable, so you
shouldn't go for them if you like customization. However, they are VERY
efficient, having stuff like universal searches, and so on.
[01:14] <ionite> btw how do i install p7zip package?
[01:14] <szal> !es | yurgt1_
[01:14] <ubottu> yurgt1_: En la mayoría de canales de Ubuntu se habla
sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español o charlar entra en el canal
#ubuntu-es. Escribe "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y dale a enter.
[01:15] <photon> it's not just with Ubuntu. A lot of software developers
recently seem to think "Hey, we run out of ideas, so instead of making
the existing system better and bug-free, let's just invent something
completely new, just for the sake of it."
[01:15] <W3ird_N3rd> mencoder should really be compiled with twolame.. I
can encode it myself, but it would be more convenient if it was just
compiled in by default
[01:15] <Dr_Willis> Im getting so used to how my android phone works.. i
want a desktop more like it. :)
[01:15] <W3ird_N3rd> *encode=compile
[01:16] <dean> hi
[01:16] <photon> dean: hi
[01:16] <buguldey> Hmm. mdadm seems to be buggy wrt OutOfMemory
conditions. I installed a raid level 1 array /dev/md0 with 2 disks:
"/dev/sdb" "missing". Formatted as reiserFS. THEN, some apps triggered O
O M while I was sleeping. I rebooted with Ubuntu dialog for
Shutdown/Reboot. After bootup, the file system of /dev/md0 became
"Unknown" as palimpsest shows it. Something has also changed the device
name from /dev/md0 into /dev/md_d0 (I haven't commanded to do s
[01:16] <dean> where are you from?
[01:16] <iwantfroyo> photon, Unity was a project to try to make Ubuntu
stand above the crowd. In my opinion, it worked well for those who liked
it. If you didn't like the change, you should try some other DE. They're
still free and available, you know.
[01:16] <ionite> Dr_Willis: how do i install p7zip full for my unetbootin
to install ubuntu?
[01:16] <valorin> photon, I can understand that. I personally find Unity
to work the way I like to work, but I do know a number of people who
don't work the same way and prefer traditional Gnome 2. Each to his/her
own :)
[01:17] <ionite> iwantfroyo: is it possible to disable unity?
[01:17] <urlin2u> ionite, you don't need 7zip for unetbootin
[01:17] <elgruntox> so does anyone have an idea on how to fix my external
monitor issue
[01:17] <Dr_Willis> if you install the unetbootin package it should pull
in all it needs.
[01:17] <ionite> urlin2u: i was prompted so.
[01:17] <elgruntox> ive updated my graphics drivers
[01:17] <fission6> what terminal based irc clients do you guys use
[01:17] <elgruntox> still cant 1080p
[01:18] <Dr_Willis> fission6: i perfer weechat these days. over irssi
[01:18] <iwantfroyo> ionite, yes. If you don't have enough resources, it
will do that for you. If you have enough resources but don't like it, log
out, look at the bottom of the screen (there should be a drop down menu
that says "Ubuntu"), and change it to "Ubuntu Classic"
[01:18] <urlin2u> ionite, your getting alot of bogus opinions here just
frealize that.
[01:18] <elgruntox> :(*
[01:18] <urlin2u> realize*
[01:18] <fission6> Dr_Willis: ok
[01:18] <Dr_Willis> how can an opinion be bogus.. its an opinion.. :)
[01:18] <Dr_Willis> I like blue paint.. :) is that bogus?
[01:19] <IdleOne> lets stick to support please
[01:19] <urlin2u> Dr_Willis, if prefaced with my opinion that is okay I
have seen that just once, a new user may not know the difference.
[01:19] <smv> hello. I've been thinking to use GPT on a boot disk, but
I'm not sure how the partitioning should look. if anyone would pastebin a
gdisk -l /dev/sdX from a working GPT boot disk would be great...
[01:19] <iwantfroyo> ionite, Ubuntu Classic will give you the Gnome 2
without the Unity shell (which is the heavy part). Gnome 2 is quite
quick. My old circa 2000 machine works fine with it.
[01:19] <elgruntox> id love support IdleOne !
[01:19] <photon> iwantfroyo, valorin: sure, I understand, but wouldn't it
make more sense for those developers to invest their time into fixing
bugs/security holes/memory leaks, etc? I'm sure there are still a lot of
them around which are yet to be found. but instead they are doing the
same mistake as Microsoft with Windows. putting a completely new OS out
every few years. at least they have a reason, revenue, but that's not the
case with Ubuntu. it's free anyway.
[01:19] <buguldey> ionite: sudo apt-get install p7zip-full
[01:19] <Mr_Hands> IdleOne is a power hunger GEEK who sucks man cocks and
likes to get his man flower busted one a week. A NOOB at *nix. GEEK
[01:19] <urlin2u> IdleOne, accurtae support would be nice.
[01:20] <urlin2u> accurate*
[01:20] <Mr_Hands> suck it nun
[01:20] <ionite> buguldey: that was what i was looking for.. lovely.
[01:20] <elgruntox> IdleOne: do you know how i can go about getting my
monitor to use its native resolution?
[01:20] <IdleOne> elgruntox: no.
[01:20] <elgruntox> great!
[01:20] <elgruntox> open source to the rescue yet again
[01:20] <IdleOne> elgruntox: someone in here probably does.
[01:20] <racho> elgruntox, what exactly is your problem?
[01:20] <ionite> besides the environment what is the diff between KDE and
[01:20] <buguldey> ionite: you can use 'aptitude search packagename' (w/o
quotes) to search for packages
[01:21] <photon> elgruntox: have you tried installing the proper graphic
card drivers? that often fixed that problem for me.
[01:21] <urlin2u> elgruntox, have you looked in monitors/display
[01:21] <elgruntox> yes yes and yes!
[01:21] <iwantfroyo> photon, The goal with Natty was to get Unity
started. It isn't meant to be a bug-free system, or a completely stable
one. The goal is to get it bug free and stable by 12.04. In between LTS
releases, new concepts are formed and put into action. You have to expect
them to have bugs.
[01:21] <elgruntox> monitors/display only lets me set it to 1024
[01:21] <elgruntox> drivers are updated
[01:21] <buguldey> ionite: or aptitude search keyword
[01:21] <elgruntox> and my xorg.conf is empty
[01:21] <Mr_Hands> IdleOne, are you a woman. I mean you don't know dick
about *nix. AntiSec is still floating =)
[01:21] <Friar> I can't seem to get flash to work with 11.04. have it
installed from software center, but I keep ghetting messages about
installing a missing plugin.
[01:22] <racho> elgruntox, what does xrandr -q spits
[01:22] <photon> Friar: are you using Firefox?
[01:22] <iwantfroyo> ionite, The KDE version of Ubuntu is called Kubuntu,
and it comes with programs written in Qt (normal Ubuntu is GTK).
[01:22] <Mr_Hands> lol trying to do a trace
[01:22] <Mr_Hands> Get some real tools
[01:22] <urlin2u> Friar, install the restricted-extras
[01:22] <elgruntox> racho: i shall find out
[01:22] <buguldey> ok. noone answered about mdadm.
[01:23] <elgruntox> racho: it says 1920x1080
[01:23] <elgruntox> for hdmi
[01:23] <elgruntox> so im assuming its supported but i cant change it in
the monitor settings app
[01:23] <bosyak> what the difference between descktop & server if I need
install server at home with GUI?
[01:23] <ionite> so ubuntu is more rigid in softwares and less
[01:24] <Friar> photon, I am using firefox...urlin2u can I just do sudo
apt-get install restricted-extras?
[01:24] <iwantfroyo> ionite, No. Ubuntu uses Gnome by default, which is
written in GTK. GTK programs run better in Gnome, and Qt programs run
better in KDE.
[01:24] <urlin2u> Friar, yep.
[01:24] <photon> Friar: do what urlin2u said, if it does not work, I can
give you another option.
[01:24] <elgruntox> racho: any idea?
[01:24] <urlin2u> Friar, ubuntu-restricted-extras
[01:24] <iwantfroyo> ionite, You can still run Qt programs in Gnome, and
vice versa. They just won't support stuff like dragging something from
one program to another.
[01:25] <Dr_Willis> ionite: gnome progrmas tend to be designed to be
less configurable.
[01:25] <Friar> urlin2u...ah got it...didn't recognize without ubuntu in
[01:25] <racho> elgruntox, just a moment to refresh my memory with the
manpage :)
[01:25] <Dr_Willis> ionite: as a way to make them more user friendly.
[01:25] <Mr_Hands> All right ya cunts I am getting tired of your LOL
Linux noob stuff. Get a real system like Arch or BackTrack 5. Metasploit
framework and learn some RFI, OFI and XSS with some nice SQL injection
[01:25] <Mr_Hands> later
[01:25] <elgruntox> racho: you rock!
[01:25] <ionite> still puzzled in between kde and ubuntu wonder which
should i try sighs.
[01:25] <iwantfroyo> Dr_Willis, Gnome programs are plenty customizable.
Just usually behind the scenes. The options aren't right there in front
of you.
[01:25] <Friar> thanks photon, and urlin2u.
[01:26] <Dr_Willis> iwantfroyo: often not even behind the scenes...
[01:26] <urlin2u> MR-Hands sociopath or narcissist which I wonder
[01:26] <Friar> got another question about photography with
ubuntu....I've read about programs that you can use to control a nikon
d90 with your computer.
[01:26] <valorin> photon, I think part of it comes down to being
innovative. A lot of users, like yourself, are happy to use a rock solid
desktop which doesn't change, while others like to try new things and
designs. There is the "shiny" affect as well, where being new and pretty
attracts users. But I personally find the launcher and dash to be a lot
quicker and easier to use than the old menus, so I'll never go back. I
find unity better, even tho
[01:26] <valorin> ugh it's got bugs and issues, they are being resolved
and the experience gets better over time.
[01:26] <iwantfroyo> Dr_Willis, that is true. KDE has its merits, and
Gnome does too. KDE is better for customization, I agree.
[01:26] <bosyak> Dr_Willis: Please, what the difference between descktop
& server if I need install server at home with GUI?
[01:26] <racho> elgruntox, you have a laptop/netbook or desktop
[01:26] <Friar> does anyone know what that is? i'm looking to do some
night photography with my camera
[01:27] <Dr_Willis> bosyak: server has no gui.. if you dont know that
you need a server.. stick to the desktop edition
[01:27] <szal> bosyak: what do you need a GUI on a server for?
[01:27] <iwantfroyo> ionite, You can install normal Ubuntu, then install
the kubuntu-desktop package, which well let you log into whichever you
[01:27] <Dr_Willis> bosyak:   you can run services on the desktop
[01:27] <elgruntox> racho: laptop with hdmi out
[01:27] <elgruntox> toa monitor
[01:27] <iwantfroyo> ionite, I find installing KDE onto Ubuntu is easier
than installing Gnome+Unity onto Kubuntu.
[01:27] <elgruntox> im trying to set the monitors display
[01:27] <urlin2u> Friar, you're welcome.:D
[01:27] <Dr_Willis> ionite: i tend to install lubuntu, kubuntu, and
ubuntu all on my system. :)
[01:28] <Dr_Willis> wife uses lubuntu, i normally use kubuntu, sometimes
i use ubuntu.
[01:28] <X_already_in_use> hey guys, help me out here, I've always
wondered how to format a pendrive/usb flashdrive/thumbdrive on linux (my
lubuntu), in win7 all I do is rite click format on My Computer, how do I
go about this on lubuntu, just use Gparted then delete partition, add new
partition ??
[01:28] <Dr_Willis> X_already_in_use: gparted an do it.. yes.. or
command line tools.
[01:28] <iwantfroyo> Dr_Willis, Wow. That's a lot. I'm considering trying
LXDE myself (despite using Linux for years, I've never really tried it).
What do you think of it?
[01:28] <xangua> X_already_in_use: you can also right clic-format
[01:28] <Dr_Willis> iwantfroyo: lubuntu works decently well.
[01:29] <Dr_Willis> iwantfroyo: its missing a few little things.. but
nothing major.
[01:29] <iwantfroyo> Dr_Willis, Alright. Thank you. I'll try it when I
have the time.
[01:29] <fede> Hi, anyone knows hot to activate opengl on photoshop using
[01:29] <bosyak> Dr_Willis, szal I want install server (postfix, VM,
httpd,...) for test enviroment... and in the same time work like on
desktop. And I want to know what the difference between distribution
(server vs desktop)
[01:29] <darthtone> is their anyway to change the way shell reads and
puts out data size from kb to mb?    for example 7,583 kb/10,000
[01:29] <darthtone> from apt-get and such
[01:29] <Dr_Willis> bosyak: as i said.. you can install services on the
desktop install...
[01:30] <Dr_Willis> bosyak: theres no real reason for you to use the
server install just to play with some services
[01:30] <racho> elgruntox, xrandr --output *device name here* --mode
[01:30] <bosyak> Dr_Willis: ok, thanks
[01:30] * szal doesn't think there is a difference, the kernel is the
same on *buntu
[01:31] <elgruntox> hey that worked racho
[01:31] <elgruntox> do i have to do that every time i log in
[01:31] <elgruntox> or reboot
[01:31] <Dr_Willis> server i think installs a differnet default kernel..
and a few other little things.. but its easier to install services on
desktop . then install a desktop on server install..
[01:31] <photon> valorin: I guess I'm just being old-fashioned. I prefer
a stable, secure system over something brand new anytime, although I do
understand the appeal. but I honestly don't want Linux to get a lot of
users, because then black-hat hackers and malicious people will focus
their attacks more and more on Linux. You can see that starting with the
Macintosh now. And I honestly don't think that Linux is that much safer
than any other OS, yes it's architecture
[01:31] <photon> is safer by design than, say, Windows, but still. too
many bugs and security holes are still found years after an initial
[01:31] <X_already_in_use> xangua, where do I rite click format in linux?
to format the pendrive/thumbdrive
[01:31] <xangua> X_already_in_use: on the pendrive icon...
[01:31] <racho> elgruntox, i suppose it will work until reboot. but you
can always make a little script to start it automatically

[01:32] <elgruntox> i just clicked set default so i hope that worked!
[01:32] <elgruntox> thanks a bunch for the help
[01:32] <iwantfroyo> photon, I agree. The good thing is the code is open,
so if Ubuntu becomes really mainstream, people who need more security can
just switch.
[01:32] <racho> elgruntox, :) you're welcome
[01:32] <darthtone> is there anyway to change the way the term prints out
data size from KB to MB?
[01:32] <elgruntox> i guess the settings app didnt detect my monitor
properly or something
[01:32] <elgruntox> weird
[01:32] <X_already_in_use> xangua, i dont see the reformat option
[01:33] <photon> iwantfroyo: switch? to another distro?
[01:33] <racho> elgruntox, the answer is probably in the Xorg logs
[01:33] <X_already_in_use> xangua, im using pcman file manager
[01:33] <xangua> X_already_in_use: well in ubuntu gnome it is
[01:33] <X_already_in_use> xangua, interesting, will check that out. thnx
for the tips anyways
[01:33] <Aszurom> X-Chat Gnome is pretty weird compared to the OSX
[01:33] <iwantfroyo> photon, Yeah. Ubuntu isn't actually too different
from other distros, and some of the others are a lot more security

[01:45] <asasdkasd> o.o
[01:45] <etfb> How do I make the Unity sidebar hide itself? It won't go
[01:45] <asasdkasd> when will Oneiric be released?
[01:46] <Dr_Willis> etfb: all the time? or are youhaveing issues with
fullscreened apps?
[01:46] <Dr_Willis> the CCSM unity plugin has settings to tweak the
[01:46] <MX1i> etfb: try rebooting into Ubuntu Classic, you want Unity
gone right? or just temperory hidden?
[01:46] <etfb> None of the apps are full-screened. SOmetimes the bar
just won't hide.
[01:46] <swaroop> hi ppl.
[01:46] <swaroop> need help with GTKPOD
[01:46] <swaroop> i have all my music on my apple ipod classic
[01:46] <freshone0> iam using ubuntu 11.04 natty narwal i have 500 gb HDD
and created a partition of 100 gb and 400 gb now my home folder is 100 gb
and i cannot use the 400 gb
[01:46] <darthtone> j
[01:46] <etfb> No, don't want Unity Classic. I just want the sidebar to
work. Unity is excellent, but buggier than a Microsoft product.
[01:46] <usr13> etfb: You can tell it to hide
[01:47] <chaospsychex> #linux-config !
[01:47] <swaroop> need to export it to my / partition on ubuntu
[01:47] <etfb> usr13, how?
[01:47] <Dr_Willis> etfb: its a work in progress.. its improved a lot in
[01:47] <swaroop> ive tried gtkpod
[01:47] <MX1i> freshone0: the 400GB is prob unallocated try - Gparted
[01:47] <freshone0> what should be the mount point for the 400 gb so that
i can use it..
[01:47] <swaroop> but im unable to select all the tracks :/
[01:47] <swaroop> & kit keeps crashing on me :/
[01:47] <swaroop> *it
[01:47] <freshone0> mount point is /
[01:47] <dean> hi guys was wondering how you install gnome-shell in
ubuntu 11.10 beta 1
[01:48] <freshone0> should it be something else
[01:48] <etfb> Dr_Willis, it's already excellent. I'm a refugee from the
great KDE 4 debacle, so I know a well-handled roll-out when I see it.
[01:48] <usr13> etfb: Well, I'm not sure how I did it, but....well I
think my wife did.
[01:48] <freshone0> and if one does not want a partition will it work
[01:48] <swaroop> is there an easier way to export all 5000 songs to my
Ubuntu root ?
[01:48] <nac-godfather> anyone know how to get xscreensaver to run under
[01:48] <swaroop> !gtkpod
[01:48] <Dr_Willis> etfb: i would not use the term execellent. :)
[01:49] <etfb> Dr_Willis, as I said - after KDE4, everything looks good.
[01:49] <swaroop> does ipod get mounted?
[01:49] <usr13> Oh, it's because she uses full screen mode I guess.
[01:49] <hsantiago> hi, my glxgears is not working. i get this message:
"Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0"." i removed my nvidia
card and now im using onboard video. how can i fix it?
[01:49] <Dr_Willis> etfb: i find kde4 very useable right now
[01:49] <swaroop> pardon my ignorance
[01:49] <etfb> Dr_Willis, probably is - it's what, two years since it was
made standard in Kubuntu? Three? Long enough for it to finally be
[01:50] <swaroop> hmmmm
[01:50] <Dr_Willis> etfb: and in 3 years. unity may be muchbetter. :)
[01:50] <Dr_Willis> or it may be a dead project.
[01:50] <usr13> I think it's because she toggles back and forth with F11
[01:50] <etfb> Oh certainly. I look forward to the day that the icon bar
up the top works properly with XChat, Skype, etc, the menus in
LibreOffice are integrated, the bloody sidebar hides when it's supposed
[01:50] <freshone0> what should ber the mount location or point for the
400 gb partition?
[01:50] <swaroop> in 3 years Ubuntu maybe the best OS ever
[01:51] <swaroop> i mean better than OS X
[01:51] <xangua> swaroop: already is
[01:51] <swaroop> dont agree
[01:51] <xangua> recently osx copied all it's features
[01:51] <swaroop> my Ubuntu still crashes
[01:51] <swaroop> when i use firefox + Facebook
[01:51] <xangua> but that is offtopic here ;)
[01:52] <swaroop> to me Ubuntu rules
[01:52] <swaroop> but the UI can be better
[01:52] <swaroop> anyways....
[01:52] <Dr_Willis> swaroop: odd never had facebook crash my ubuntu
[01:52] <swaroop> could i get help with my ipod classic?
[01:52] <etfb> UI is hard. Adding features is always the fun part of
programming; getting the existing features to work is boring.
[01:52] <swaroop> i asked like 3 times already :/
[01:52] <Dr_Willis> freshone0: mount it whever you want. dependign on
your needs
[01:52] <racho> freshone0, is it the rootfs or separate partition?
[01:52] <alazare619> just an fyi nettalk is probably the nicest windows
client out there
[01:53] <swaroop> UI is what normal customers like
[01:53] <swaroop> err users even
[01:53] <swaroop> they want the bells & whistles

[02:07] <Emanon> 11.10 comes out late oct right?
[02:07] <mssever> Emanon: yes
[02:07] <freshone0> yes

[02:10] <mssever> freshone0: yes
[02:10] <usr13> the URLs
[02:10] <racho> the / is meant to be closed for writing files freely.
you've got your /home for that stuff

[02:17] <yeats> learning pastebinit may not be worth the trouble ;-)
[02:17] <Emanon> Anyways thanks for the release info, bye all.
[02:17] <mssever> swaroop: If the suggestions that have been given aren't
working for you, you might be out of options
[02:18] <usr13> yeats: pastebinit IS worth the trouble.
[02:18] <swaroop> :/
[02:18] <swaroop> i even did a reboot !
[02:18] <swaroop> no luck
[02:18] <swaroop> my fdisk -l shows errors :/
[02:18] <yeats> usr13: I agree, generally, but it may not be in this case
[02:18] <usr13> pastebinit is an awesome tool.
[02:18] <yeats> usr13: no arguments here

[02:20] <Benwin> I need to have my router (running Ubuntu 10.04) forward
all requests to some.domain.com to an IP within the local network. (IE:
irc.mydomain.net to

[02:20] <Benwin> And I'm not sure how, or how to phrase the question
properly to google it.
[02:20] <racho> swaroop, do you have a point dir for mounting? have you
edited /etc/fstab and see if it works??
[02:20] <|NeXuS|> anyone know why people lose video play back in ubuntu
[02:20] <|NeXuS|> ?
[02:20] <usr13> Benwin: Well, first off, put an entry for it in
[02:21] <mssever> Benwin: I think the best approach is to either edit
/etc/hosts on all machines or if there are too many, set up a DNS server
[02:21] <ChrisRJersey> install iTunes in wine
[02:21] <IdleOne> M452s: this is the method I use. sudo add-apt-
repository ppa:sevenmachines/flash && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get
install flashplugin64-nonfree
[02:21] <tarelerulz> I have ipod touch want to make so I don't need
router ssh into the ipod ? what are my options ?
[02:21] <Benwin> mssever: there are 14 machines behind the router, so the
router needs to be updated if possible.
[02:21] <Benwin> It's a LAN center of sorts.
[02:21] <Benwin> so it's not feasible to alter all computers behind the
[02:22] <mssever> Benwin: My recommendation would be to set up BIND9 or
some other DNS server on one machine, then configure your router to hand
out that machine's IP for the DNS server instead of your ISP's
[02:22] <swaroop> http:/paste.ubuntu.com/683035/
[02:22] <swaroop> guys
[02:23] <mssever> Benwin: I've done something similar in the past and it
worked well
[02:23] <usr13> Benwin: Then put nameserver
[02:23] <racho> M452s, or download the beta from adobe.com and put in
[02:23] <usr13> in /etc/resolv.conf
[02:23] <|NeXuS|> when i play videos on ubuntu 10.10 some times they
crash the media player and i cant seem to play videos anymore on any
player any ideas ?
[02:23] <racho> M452s, assuming you're with FF
[02:23] <swaroop> any help guys?
[02:23] <mssever> Benwin: usr13 nameserver will break your
[02:24] <M452s> racho: yeah im using ff
[02:24] <yeats> |NeXuS|: run a video player from the command line and see
if there is error output?
[02:24] <photon> M452s:
[02:24] <mssever> Benwin: usr13 You need to use your local DNS server's
external IP (probably 192.168.something)
[02:24] <|NeXuS|> flash-aid firefox : firefox plugin that installs flash
for you
[02:24] <photon> M452s: Place the .so file in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/
and you're off.
[02:25] <usr13> mssever: No it wont
[02:25] <IdleOne> use the sevenmachines PPA
[02:25] <IdleOne> no need to copy/move files
[02:25] <rickup> Benwin, you can run a local forwarding cache on http://cr.yp.to/djbdns/run-cache-home.html
[02:25] <mssever> usr13: It'll only work on the machine that's running
the nameserver
[02:25] <mssever> usr13: not the rest of the network
[02:25] <usr13> correct
[02:25] <rickup> Benwin, or you can use Google's public DNS
[02:25] <g8tor> i'm trying to enable remote conn to mysql. opened port
3306 and changed the bind-address to restarted mysql and I still
cant connect am I missing something
[02:26] <Benwin> these all seem overly complex.
[02:26] <usr13> mssever: Ok. You tell him how to do it then.
[02:26] <Benwin> Its core is Ubuntu
[02:26] <|NeXuS|> im trying to get the video player to crash again
[02:26] <Benwin> the front-end is Zentyal
[02:26] <|NeXuS|> i use smplayer
[02:27] <usr13> mssever: I know it works because I do it.
[02:27] <meway> I installed an old netgear wireless card after installing
lubuntu, How do I make this work?
[02:27] <meway> Also the machine has no other way of connecting to the
internet but I have a usb flash drive
[02:27] <meway> Is there a way to check what the name of my device is?
all I know its a netgear
[02:27] <rickup> Benwin, "there are 14 machines behind the router, so the
router needs to be updated if possible" What is the OS/brand/config of
this router
[02:28] <Benwin> Um
[02:28] <|NeXuS|> lspci
[02:28] <|NeXuS|> shows hardware
[02:28] <Benwin> 3.06 ghz dual-cpu Xeon

[02:28] <rickup> the OS is Ubuntu Benwin?
[02:28] <Benwin> 10.04
[02:29] <rickup> ok
[02:29] <Benwin> I have SSH and console access.
[02:29] <rickup> is it the DHCP server?
[02:29] <Benwin> yes
[02:29] <rickup> cool
[02:29] <rickup> what is its IP?
[02:29] <Benwin> .254
[02:29] <rickup> on the clients
[02:29] <Knuxgen> even ubuntu 11.10 can't see my sata 3 disk :/
[02:29] <Benwin> Que?
[02:29] <rickup> sorry let me get a complete thought ready
[02:30] <rickup> So the router is online yes? it can piong google?
[02:30] <meway> Ok so I have a Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology
Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless (rev 03)
[02:30] <meway> how do I get this to work?
[02:30] <Benwin> I'm talking to you through it. :)
[02:30] <rickup> yay
[02:30] <Benwin> It's *fully* functional.
=== das is now known as Guest73276
[02:30] <Benwin> It has been for three months now.
[02:30] <Benwin> I just need to change this *one* tiny little thing.
[02:30] <Benwin> I'm hosting a minecraft server in-house
[02:31] <rickup> ok on each DHCP client should get DNS automatically
(windows boxes?)
[02:31] <Benwin> so I need mc.thedomain.com to resolve to
(which is the LAN IP of the minecraft server)
[02:31] <Sanvean> Benwin, is that deadly ?
[02:31] <racho> Knuxgen, maybe change from BIOS from IDE to AHCI
[02:31] <rickup> I knew I was missing something... obvious
[02:31] <Benwin> IT's a LAN center.
[02:31] <Benwin> I can't control all machines connecting out
[02:31] <Benwin> So if they have a custom DNS
[02:32] <|NeXuS|> meway what distro you got 10.10 ?
[02:32] <Benwin> So I just need the router box to snag all requests to
mc.thedomain.com and forward them to .5
[02:32] <rickup> Benwin, how often do the 14 hosts get swapped out
changed or otherwise reconfigured
[02:32] <meway> |NeXuS|: actually its the latest Lubuntu but it seems to
be vertually the same thing
[02:32] <kbhtech> k, Im trying to mod an xbox, but facing a problem...
[02:32] <rickup> you can make a hosts file entry on each client
[02:32] <meway> kbhtech: ??
[02:32] <Benwin> right now, there are 14 DHCP leases active.
[02:33] <rickup> I do this all the time with less than25 hosts
[02:33] <tarelerulz> Is there any way to make my laptop like the router ?
so I can hook up wireless to other pc ?
[02:33] <Benwin> 8 of those machines are owned by people that aren't me.
[02:33] <Benwin> So I can't control their hosts file.
[02:33] <kbhtech> I cannot find slayers products.
[02:33] <rickup> ahhh ok
[02:33] <Benwin> So I need the router to snag all traffic to that one
[02:33] <Benwin> lol
[02:33] <meway> kbhtech what kind of mod?
[02:33] <rickup> you need a split horizon DNS server is what you need
this other thing I am struggling to remember the name of

[02:36] <freshone0> i need the home to be 400 gb
[02:36] <meway> kbtech view my query
[02:37] <tarelerulz> can you connect to pc wireless with out router or
switch box ?
[02:37] <racho> meway, it seems you need mwl8k which *might* support your

[02:39] <rww> Krenair: 1) #ubuntu+1 for oneiric discussion and support,
please. 2) Yes, as far as I know.
[02:39] <Pici> Aszurom: Thats probably fine. I personally preferred to
install adobe air and use tweetdeck's air app. It worked fine for me.
[02:39] <Aszurom> Pici, that's where air is putting it, I mean
[02:40] <racho> meway, the two ways are 1) NDISwrapper 2)get the linux
drivers from

[02:42] <MIke021> what's the difference between desktop and server ubuntu
[02:42] <israelito_solito> i am using pidgin but all my contacts are gone
[02:42] <justyellowboy> Server ubuntu is designed to be used in servers.
[02:42] <|NeXuS|> hmm
[02:42] <justyellowboy> I mean, that's obvious, but, it's probably thus
less user-friendly.
[02:43] <usr13> freshone0: SEND resulting URLs
[02:43] <justyellowboy> Any of you guys experts in OpenOffice?
[02:43] <|NeXuS|> it kinda sounds like a ssl handshake error on known ssl

[02:44] <usr13> justyellowboy: what do you need?
[02:44] <|NeXuS|> not sending the friend list is odd

this neat colored border on the left edge of the page formatted onto it.
I'd like to replicate that.

[02:47] <Pici> webirc1234: yes, they are having issues, switch to a
different mirror.
[02:47] <webirc1234> Pici: is this related to the recent security issue?
[02:47] <webirc1234> I thought that was only kernel.org

[02:47] <racho> meway, i suggest you get the NDISwrapper and windows
drivers.This way it will work for sure

and not all of them?
[02:47] <usr13> freshone0: Show us your partitions and /etc/fstab file.
Pastebinit it and send URLs. Let's have a look.

mirrors.kernel.org as well. I just switched off of it myself because I
was tired of seeing errors in my cron logs.

[02:50] <freshone0> it says that
[02:50] <justyellowboy> Wait, err, can a cdrom have a partition? s:
[02:50] <webirc1234> Pici: I like the sed solution. Thanks :-)
[02:50] <webirc1234> Pici: looks like you also appreciate how fast
mirrors.kernel.org used to be :-)
[02:50] <freshone0> i have a 500 gb hdd and my home folder is only 100 gb
[02:51] <freshone0> i want home to be the largest partition

[02:55] <qin> Lasers: some perl, some bash, and it can be done, /j #irssi
[02:55] <freshone0> now what?
[02:55] <justyellowboy> You're trying to establish a partition in a CD-
Rom right?
[02:55] <BrandonBolton> rww: I thought this was the general chat one.
Sorry about that. I have no association with the website just a member.
[02:56] <freshone0> no i want my" home " to be the larger partition
[02:56] <freshone0> out of 500 gb it is only 100 gb
[02:56] <freshone0> and i do not have permission to use the 400 gb
[02:57] <justyellowboy> Ohhh you are creating a filesystem and trying to
resize your home partition.
[02:57] <freshone0> yes
[02:57] <freshone0> the 400 gb partition is mounted on /
[02:57] <freshone0> is it ok or do i need to change it
[02:57] <BrandonBolton> freshone0, Go to terminal and type in sudo apt-
get install gparted I just gparted for all of my partition needs. :)
[02:58] <justyellowboy> That means that the root filesystem is on the 400
gb partition.
[02:58] <dr-willis> not sure of the proper wsy to shrink a primary and
add it to an extended and logical.
[02:58] <justyellowboy> You would have to eliminate that entire partition
to add it to your current home partition.
[02:58] <justyellowboy> And then
[02:58] <Lasers> freshone0: There are no ideal solutions -- just
preferences. My preference was using two HDD. 20GB HDD for / -- and 300TB
for ~/
[02:58] <justyellowboy> you'd have to find a new place to put the root
[02:58] <justyellowboy> You follow me so far, right?
[02:59] <justyellowboy> I believe that's the case.
[02:59] <dr-willis> it may take some work in gparted to resize them.
[02:59] <freshone0> how does on e acess a file on / ?
[02:59] <usr13> freshone0: You need to shrink your / partition
(/dev/sda1) and increase size of /home (/dev/sda5)
[02:59] <dr-willis> same as any other location freshone0
[03:00] <justyellowboy> Oh okay, I thought you couldn't shrink the /
partition. o:
[03:00] <BrandonBolton> freshone0: Why didn't you just edit the partition
table during the installation?
[03:00] <dr-willis> usr13: he may need to grow theextended fiirst then
the logical
[03:00] <usr13> freshone0:    The root partition (/dev/sda1) can be as
small as 30G
[03:00] <justyellowboy> He probably assumed 100 gb was enough
[03:00] <freshone0> how does one use a partition mounted on/
[03:00] <justyellowboy> You boot it.
[03:00] <Lasers> Through fstab?
[03:01] <Lasers> That's for automatic stuffs.
[03:01] <dr-willis> freshone0: you will want to be ysing a live cd with
gparted on it for this work
[03:01] <usr13> freshone0: dr-willis is correct /dev/sda2 has to be
enlarged. (Because /dev/sda5 is logical partition on /dev/sda2)
[03:01] <freshone0> i mean i can only store files in the home partition
how do i access the rest
[03:01] <usr13> freshone0: Yes, that is how it works
[03:02] <justyellowboy> Being able to store files in the home partition
is a good thing, majorly.
[03:02] <dr-willis> cd /     then ls. you are acessing it..
[03:02] <usr13> freshone0: You just need to change your partition sizes
to match your needs.
[03:02] <freshone0> yes
[03:02] <justyellowboy> Agh I should at least know the answer to that
question aljfkffs I suck at helping
[03:02] <freshone0> tell me what to do
[03:03] <justyellowboy> fstab has a friendly interface, right?
[03:03] <usr13> freshone0: The root partition / (/dev/sda1) can be
small. 20-30G is plenty
[03:03] <Lasers> Nope.
[03:03] <justyellowboy> Hahaha okay
[03:03] <dr-willis> freshone0: get a live cd that has gparted for
starters. backup imporntant files also.
[03:04] <usr13> freshone0: Increase size of /dev/sda2 (and in turn
/dev/sda5) to about 400G
[03:04] <Lasers> It's just a line. Add a line. Make sure it's properly
formatted (and correct numbers of valid parameters)
[03:04] <BrandonBolton> freshone0: Here, follow this link.
http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Gparted It's to learn how to use Gparted.
After you learn go to terminal and type 'sudo apt-get install gparted'
without the qoutes of coures :)
[03:04] <freshone0> dev/sda1 is 372.53 gib
[03:04] <usr13> freshone0: Yes, that is way too big
[03:04] <freshone0> according to gparted
[03:05] <usr13> freshone0: Home needs to be that big (or bigger)
[03:05] <usr13> freshone0: As dr-willis suggests, fire up the liveCD and
use gparted
[03:05] <freshone0> and dev/sda5 is 92.23
[03:05] <dr-willis> you could just move home to the / and not use a
seoerate home partitiin
[03:05] <freshone0> yes
[03:05] <freshone0> what do i do
[03:05] <chaospsychex> who would do such a thing as that
[03:06] <usr13> freshone0: shrink /dev/sda1 and take up the space on
/dev/sda2 (and in turn /dev/sda5, the logical partition).
[03:06] <justyellowboy> Probably people who don't want to have the hassle
of partition resizing, although it sounds simple enough in this case~
[03:06] <dr-willis> then delete the sda2. and resize sda1 and remake
sda2. move home back
[03:06] <freshone0> live cd is the cd i used to install ubuntu
[03:06] <justyellowboy> Yes, that LiveCD.
[03:06] <freshone0> so i just put it and then what?
[03:06] <justyellowboy> Use that.
[03:06] <justyellowboy> Then
[03:06] <justyellowboy> I got this!
[03:07] <chaospsychex> he will have to chroot
[03:07] <BrandonBolton> freshone0: Yes, that is the live cd. Just choose
the try Ubuntu link.
[03:07] <dr-willis> justyellowboy: rhw use of a extended logical makes
it a little harder
[03:07] <BobManiaBr559> ola
[03:07] <justyellowboy> Insert the LiveCD and reboot. You can use a key
(F11 works) to boot from CD. Then you will be using the LiveCD OS.
[03:07] <freshone0> ok why not the install?
[03:07] <freshone0> ok
[03:07] <dr-willis> freshone0: is this a new install?
[03:08] <chaospsychex> freshone0 what did you do? partition incorrectly ?
[03:08] <freshone0> yes
[03:08] <usr13> dr-willis: Yes, that is totally un-necessary. should be
just sda1 and sda2 and sda3
[03:08] <accel> first five peopel to join #startups-offtopic gets op
[03:08] <Pici> accel: do not advertise channels here.
[03:08] <BobManiaBr559> ola
[03:08] <usr13> dr-willis: I notice he doesn't even have a swap
[03:08] <justyellowboy> o:
[03:08] <dr-willis> freshone0: backup imporntant stuff and reinstall and
use primary partions size as needed will be faster
[03:09] <BobManiaBr559> Plug-in Java 1.6.0_27
[03:09] <usr13> freshone0: While you are at it, create /dev/sda6 for
swap. About 4G     Okay?
[03:09] <freshone0> there is no data stored it is a new coputer
=== Beastmode is now known as Dasda
[03:09] <justyellowboy> That makes it super easy then! C:
[03:09] <freshone0> ok
[03:09] <chaospsychex> freshone0: why didn't you choose use entire disk
[03:09] <terr_> I just used k3b to burn kubuntubalh.iso to the cd. I
moutned it and I see the .iso file. I didn't do this right? right?
arrghh. How?
[03:09] <freshone0> what should be the mount point
[03:09] <chaospsychex> you tried to manually create the partitions ?
[03:10] <dr-willis> freshone0: you wull want 3 primary partitiins. /
swap and /home
[03:10] <chaospsychex> are you installing from the live cd?
[03:10] <chaospsychex> all you do is choose USE ENTIRE DISK
[03:10] <freshone0> i will now
[03:10] <justyellowboy> He is repartitioning from the LiveCD.
[03:10] <chaospsychex> why is he repartitioning?
[03:10] <justyellowboy> Because he sized the home partition too small and
the / partition too large.
[03:10] <freshone0> where is the option to use entire disk?
[03:10] <chaospsychex> when you launch the installer
[03:10] <dr-willis> chaospsychex: his / is 300gb and home 100gb
[03:11] <usr13> freshone0: /dev/sda1=20G    /dev/sda2=380G
/dev/sda5=376G   /dev/sda6=4G (swap)
[03:11] <usr13> something like that   ^^^
[03:11] <chaospsychex> just reinstall,will be alot easier for you
[03:11] <justyellowboy> Mmyeah.
[03:11] <chaospsychex> manually partitioning is not for noobs
[03:11] <freshone0> i want to reinstall as the pc has no data
[03:11] <dr-willis> id use all primaries in this case
[03:11] <chaospsychex> then reinstall and choose USE ENTIRE DISK
[03:11] <usr13> Oh wait, that is a 500G drive, not 400. Well you get the
[03:12] <chaospsychex> if you don't want a dual-boot
[03:12] <chaospsychex> are you planning on putting windows on this
computer as well?
[03:12] <freshone0> usr13: will do that
[03:12] <usr13> freshone0: /dev/sda1=20G    /dev/sda2=480G
/dev/sda5=476G   /dev/sda6=4G (swap)
[03:12] <justyellowboy> He doesn't. He's using a separate device to host
[03:12] <chaospsychex> or just ubuntu
[03:12] <chaospsychex> oh
[03:12] <freshone0> where is the option to use entire disk?
[03:12] <chaospsychex> use entire disk
[03:12] <chaospsychex> when you launch the installer
[03:12] <usr13> justyellowboy: Oh ok... I take that back.
[03:13] <dr-willis> time to play with the 'somthing else' cystome
partitiin section of the installer
[03:13] <chaospsychex> when you launch the installer
[03:13] <daniel__> hello
[03:13] <freshone0> ya
[03:13] <chaospsychex> its the option at the top
[03:13] <daniel__> i wonder i there is any norwegian channels?
[03:13] <chaospsychex> when it gets to disk setup
[03:13] <chaospsychex> partitioning
[03:13] <dr-willis> or just not make a seperate home ;)
[03:13] <freshone0> will try this out
[03:14] <freshone0> thanks
[03:14] <hullo> hello my home directory just went read onlu
[03:14] <hullo> only
[03:14] <dr-willis> theres prob youtube videos on this.
[03:14] <chaospsychex> lol
[03:14] <justyellowboy> Step 1: Insert LiveCD. Step 2: Reboot and press
F11 or whatever key will allow you to choose to boot from CD. Step 3: Use
Gparted. Step 4: Use entire disk.
[03:14] <hullo> i accidentally ran fsck for a second
[03:14] <justyellowboy> Step 5: Add a swap partition, too.
[03:14] <chaospsychex> you don't need to use gparted
[03:14] <justyellowboy> No?
[03:14] <justyellowboy> Okay.
[03:14] <hullo> idk if that has anything to do with it
[03:14] <chaospsychex> how much ram does this system have
[03:14] <chaospsychex> freshone, how much ram u have
[03:14] <dr-willis> justyellowboy: you mean yse installer..
[03:14] <justyellowboy> Step 3: Choose "reinstall" hahaha
[03:15] <dr-willis> ;)
[03:15] <justyellowboy> Unless it just says install.
[03:15] <usr13> dr-willis: You mean on partitions?
[03:15] <justyellowboy> Glad to be of obstruction to your guidance,
awesome guys. :)
[03:15] <chaospsychex> lolololol
[03:16] <hullo> my /home went read-only suddenly, any ideas?
[03:16] <dr-willis> for a beginner. may as well just let the installer
auto partitiin and not use a seperate /home
[03:16] <usr13> .. we shure took up a lot of space just figuring out a
simple partition sceme
[03:16] <justyellowboy> Isn't your /home supposed to be read-only?
[03:16] <dr-willis> hullo: check dmesg output.
[03:16] <chaospsychex> hullo: man chown
[03:16] <usr13> dr-willis: I don't know, separate /home is nice to have

[03:17] <justyellowboy> The separation of partition allows for

[03:17] <hullo> lol home
[03:17] <hullo> im not a noob or anything, just havent seen this

[03:18] <chaospsychex> what is your username on the machine
[03:18] <usr13> hullo: What does df say? What does df -i    say?
[03:18] <dr-willis> hull the hd may be failing.. i would back it up soon
[03:18] <hullo> usr13: what line?

ability i would run 'gsmartcontrol' and see what it says about your

[03:21] <usr13> hullo: the sceond one, is that output of df -i      ?   It
says 90%
[03:21] <hullo> cant install anything bc root is read only

shutdown the computer and don't turn it on until you come back with a new

[03:21] <hullo> the second one is drive space
[03:22] <MorphineDrip> i hear ya. caught between a shit and a fart
[03:22] <usr13> hullo: sde1 is root?     Do you have separate /home
[03:22] <hullo> JUST installed a software raid on this box i think i got
lucky here
[03:22] <hullo> no seperate /home
[03:22] <daniel__> mine is 1%
[03:22] <MorphineDrip> too many cooks in the kitchen. i'
[03:22] <MorphineDrip> i'll hang back in the weeds
[03:23] <hullo> time to copy everything over to: /dev/md0
8.1T 275G 7.4T     4% /media/moria ;)
[03:23] <usr13> hullo: Which line up there is from df    and which is from
df -i ? (One says 90%).
[03:23] <daniel__> is 1% good? for / it is 29%
[03:24] <dr-willis> use ubuntu one. :)
[03:24] <hullo> usr 90% drive space full

[03:24] <usr13> hullo: Ant the other says 6%
[03:24] <simpleblue> does anyone know how i can decrease the amount that
my mouse button scrolls?
[03:24] <simpleblue> its scrolling about 1.5 pages per notch
[03:25] <chaospsychex> LOL
[03:25] <usr13> hullo: Oh ok
[03:25] <chaospsychex> simpleblue: LOLOLOLOL
[03:25] <justyellowboy> 1.5 pages?! Good lord!
[03:26] <simpleblue> thats the default for me... all i want is to use my
mouse scroll wheel
[03:26] <justyellowboy> Which program is this, anyway?
[03:26] <chaospsychex> some people can't even scroll 1.5 pages with like
2 minutes of scrolling
[03:26] <simpleblue> any program
[03:26] <justyellowboy> Any program. Are you using xfcs?
[03:26] <chaospsychex> LOLOL
[03:26] <daniel__> is there any offtopic channels?
[03:26] <justyellowboy> or Gnome?
[03:26] <usr13> simpleblue: Are you using /etc/X11/xorg.conf file?
[03:26] <simpleblue> gnome, unity 11.04
[03:27] <m4v> daniel__: yeah, #ubuntu-offtopic
[03:27] <chaospsychex> 0.o
[03:27] <simpleblue> i'll check usr13

[03:27] <daniel__> tnx
[03:27] <justyellowboy> wat
[03:27] <justyellowboy> God I can't type, I meant to type xfce but typed
[03:28] <justyellowboy> In OpenOffice, I want to format a specific page.
Just one, not all of them.
[03:28] <hullo> you folks think i should try to restart???
[03:28] <Roasted> Are there any OCR apps out there for Ubuntu?
[03:28] <simpleblue> i don't see that directory usr13
[03:28] <justyellowboy> hullo: See if that works, sure.
[03:28] <justyellowboy> But everything that I do to reformat the page
results in *all* of the pages reformatting.
[03:29] <elgruntox> stupid monitor bs ugh
[03:29] <elgruntox> anyone know why I cant mirror screens and keep my
monitors resolution
[03:29] <elgruntox> or if theres a way to do this
[03:29] <justyellowboy> elgruntox: Hold the monitor up to a mirror. <3
[03:29] <justyellowboy> I'm sorry, that was mean.
[03:29] <simpleblue> i just plugged in another mouse and this mouse works
[03:29] <soreau> elgruntox: What do you mean?
[03:30] <simpleblue> problem solved i guess
[03:30] <elgruntox> soreau: well right now to use my monitor i either
have to mirror the desktops
[03:30] <elgruntox> or use a two monitor setup dealy
[03:30] <elgruntox> for the two monitor setup I cant view the unity bar
or anythign since it appears on my laptop screen

[03:32] <chaospsychex> i dont have nvidia drivers installed
[03:32] <daniel__> does it work in emulators?
[03:32] <soreau> chaospsychex: You can still have nvidia drivers
installed on any machine regardless if it has no nvidia chip
[03:33] <chaospsychex> well not on this machine
[03:33] <simpleblue> mouse physically died, problem still exists :(
[03:33] <hullo> how do i make the ps/2 port read a keyboard i didnt boot

[03:36] <usr13> Lasers: You probably need to trun off the X server
[03:36] <elgruntox> soreau: do you have any idea how to fix this
[03:36] <elgruntox> or should i just reinstall windows ugh
[03:36] <soreau> elgruntox: Can you pastebin your /var/log/Xorg.0.log
file to pastebin.com?
[03:37] <Lasers> usr13: Maybe. It's hit-or-miss. X_already_in_use, try
doing it while X11 isn't running or use Nvidia GUI Settings.
[03:37] <terr_> when I mount a livecd what should I see? an .iso? or
the files in the .iso?
[03:37] <usr13> elgruntox: What?
[03:37] <poNIX> i just installed 11.04 and my display is 'garbled', how
can i fix?
[03:37] <soreau> terr_: After it's mounted, you should see the content

[03:38] <usr13> Lasers: Yes, turn off the X server and try again.
[03:38] <simpleblue> its working now. i think the problem is that when i
have my controller plugged in it messes with the mouses settings
[03:39] <chaospsychex> yeah
[03:39] <poNIX> i just put 11.04 of meh pc and display is borx

plugged and both at 1024x768. What do you want it to be?
[03:42] <elgruntox> soreau: i want 1080p
[03:42] <X_already_in_use> Lasers, I'm using laptop, and the one im
having prob is a desktop pc.
[03:43] <elgruntox> when i go and disable my laptops monitor my main
monitor goes black
[03:43] <elgruntox> and i have to reset my computer
[03:43] <meway> how do I use ndiswrapper
[03:43] <usr13> !ndiswrapper | meway
[03:43] <ubottu> meway: Wireless documentation, including how-to guides
and troubleshooting information, can be found at
[03:44] <soreau> elgruntox: Try xrandr --output HDMI1 --mode 1920x1080
[03:44] <elgruntox> ive tried that soreau and
[03:44] <elgruntox> it puits both screens on my desktop
[03:44] <elgruntox> so i have a tiny 1024 screen n the top left corner
[03:44] <elgruntox> and behind that my 1080p
[03:44] <Lasers> X_already_in_use: Okay. That's relief. To get a console,
press "CTRL+ALT+F1" -- Log in. "sudo service gdm stop" -- then -- "sudo
nvidia-xconfig" -- then "sudo service gdm start" -- Try that.
[03:44] <elgruntox> two task bars too
[03:45] <soreau> elgruntox: That's strange. Maybe try asking in #intel-

firmware. Read

[03:45] <terr_> soreau: how am I suppose to use K3b to burn an ISO onto a

(Have blank CD in)
[03:47] <usr13> terr_: Be sure and run md5sum against .iso file first

[03:53] <daniel__> it does the linux to identify one of the screens?

[03:56] <terr_> soreau: 1) because it works good enough so far and 2)
because since its borked I'm afraid to touch it and 3) because I'm trying

[03:57] <terr_> soreau: I need a boot media to do it!
[03:57] <usr13> terr_: just a sec.

helpful and I thank you.

[04:11] <terr_> usr13: the issue is I've read it. I did D/L the right
ISO. The problem is how to create a bootable USB-Stick from it. I
should be able to pick up the MBR from the ISO (has to be secotor 0) and
them copy the 2'nd stage boot sectors which should live in visible files
in the .ISO and copy them to the USB-Stick and modify the mbr with the
right offset and use dd to re-write the MBR and I should be done.
[04:11] <w0_> I'm gonna shuttup. anyways thanks all for being cool!

[04:29] <usr13> terr_: If it does, plug an IDE CDROM drive in it, cram
the kubnutu CD in and away you go.
[04:30] <Lasers> w0_: The screenshots are outdated -- yes -- but did you
try it yourself?
[04:30] <w0_> I did and I just found it !! =)
[04:30] <|NeXuS|> i use Ubuntu
[04:30] <usr13> w0_: Improvise
[04:30] <w0_> lesse here
[04:31] <terr_> usr13: its a shuttle-X with a athlon 2300+ cpu and cards
to support 6 heads. has a gb of ram. I don't have a spare IDE CD. I
have likely 10 SCSI CD's and 100 exabytes and 200 SCSI HDD's and a
DLT7000 (SCSI) and some 3490's (SCSI) and opticals as well.

open when I "Right Click on the desktop and then choose create new

information on Google that I can find.
[04:35] <Cuchulainn> hi all...any data recovery people here?
[04:37] <terr_> casey: its actually because the programmers didn't put in
proper debugging.
[04:37] <wildbat> !anyone | Cuchulainn
[04:37] <ubottu> Cuchulainn: A high percentage of the first questions
asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask
your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq,
and !poll.
[04:37] <terr_> casey: I'm a programmer and I've been saying this for a
very long time
[04:37] <cubevanbaby> hello, I am having the classic sound not working
problem. I have gone through several of the forums and the
troubleshooting guide but with no luck. I am running ubuntu 11.04 64bit
with an HP Pavillion p6218f
[04:38] <terr_> wildbat: because sometimes its hard to figure otu the
right question
[04:38] <cubevanbaby> anyone able to help per chance?
[04:38] <Cuchulainn> trying to recover a ntfs system with a hosed
mbr...trying to make sure that i'm doing it right?
[04:38] <terr_> Cuchulainn: seagate is geared up
[04:39] <tripelb> from the community documentation I am understanding
that ubuntu on a macbook 2.1 does not support the built-in wireless
(airport) - there is a picture with a lock on it. Is this true? (
[04:39] <casey> terr_: Really? That's not good. Well thank you for
replying. Is there any way around this? Also do you know anything about
why Vuze crashes anytime I try to search?
[04:39] <terr_> Cuchulainn: mbr should only affect boot.
[04:39] <terr_> casey: I've never heard of VUSE
[04:40] <casey> terr_: It also goes by azreus.
[04:40] <casey> terr_: Previous name I should say.
[04:40] <terr_> casey: only way I know is politcal. Like I've told
programmers I spervised and managed that they have time to put in proper
errror checking and at the end of the day they didn't!
[04:41] <chaospsychex> how can i start a irc server?
[04:41] <chaospsychex> what program do i use
[04:41] <Cuchulainn> terr_, and that's the probl...tried ntfsfix...no
avail...can't ultimately read mft's...so created an image with ddrescue,
and then using scalpel to carve out each file type into a directory...is
this the bes/preferred course of action?
[04:41] <daniel__> is it possible to use 4G on ubuntu?
[04:41] <casey> terr_: Oh ok. Well is this going to be corrected in
[04:41] <adamix> chaospsychex: inspircd
[04:41] <terr_> chaospsychex: I asked that question 10 years ago and was
asked why I want to?
[04:41] <simpleblue> does ubuntu 11.04 come with C++0x installed by
[04:41] <chaospsychex> i have my reasons
[04:42] <chaospsychex> inspirecd? what is that
[04:42] <adamix> irc server daemon
[04:42] <tripelb> casey I just came in on this. I used transmission with
no problems. I hope that helps. (I failed with Vuze/azurus)
[04:42] <chaospsychex> whats the package name of the daemon /.
[04:43] <terr_> Cuchulainn: I'd make a disk image with dd and then send
the drive to seagate. its like $100 and they will tell you the bill and
its under $2000
[04:43] <casey> tripelb: Is there any search features with transmission,
because that's what i'm really looking for. From what I saw, it's just to
download and upload torrents.
[04:43] <tripelb> casey, please be more specific. Do you want to search
the internet to look for torrents?
[04:44] <casey> tripelb: lol of course not. I can do that with any
browser of my liking. I'm looking for a torrent downloading software that
will search certain sites for me: such as frostwire, vuze, qb, etc.
[04:44] <tripelb> casey if that's what you mean, I have good success with
isotorent and google. (it'would be great but I get so many results that
want me to pay for their site that I get fruestrated from time to tome)
[04:45] <casey> tripelb: Same here. That's why i'm looking for an app
that will do that such as the ones listed above.
[04:45] <terr_> Cuchulainn: Only way I'd take on the NTFS issue is if
someone will pay $100 per hour after I figure out how to do it.
[04:45] <wildbat> Cuchulainn: how you messed you ntfs? ~ there are more
and better tools for Windows for NTFS then linus. or you can try
testdisk/ photorec.
[04:45] <daniel__> if it's possible to use 4G in ubuntu, do i need som
package for it??
[04:45] <tripelb> casey, I dont understand about that so that's my limit.
If you want to explain to me you can pm me (since it is off topic) or
tell me to go to #ubuntu-offtopic
[04:46] <casey> tripelb: its ok. But thank you for trying. I may have
found my answer :).
[04:46] <tripelb> casey, what do you search them for?
[04:47] <urlin2u> daniel__, not without a router/modem/phone
[04:47] <Cuchulainn> terr_, wildbat , ty for the advice...meshes with
what i'd already found, but unfortunately not apropos for this job....
[04:47] <tripelb> casey I'll go look myself) and you are welcome.

[04:48] <daniel__> i have a 4G mobile broadband but ubuntu dont know hot
to use it i think
[04:48] <terr_> Cuchulainn: where do you live? I'm asking what resources
you have available and what you face
[04:48] <Cuchulainn> *sigh*; it's true that only users lose drugs...
[04:48] <nac-godfather> anyone here familiar with rubygems?
[04:49] <urlin2u> daniel__, what is the 4G mobile broadband
[04:49] <daniel__> samsung
[04:49] <Cuchulainn> terr_, just a personal favor that i took on, and if
it's gone, it's gone; but would be a shame, as is pictures of his 13
grandchildren...and 2gs wouldn't be a problem for him, if he didn't have
at least 13 grandchildren...
[04:50] <urlin2u> daniel__, so is this 20 questions here can you give
specifics it is you that needs the help here.
[04:51] <Cuchulainn> terr_, if that makes sense at all..
[04:51] <daniel__> it's only "4G samsung", its the only print on it. its
a usb device
[04:53] <urlin2u> daniel__, well I'm not going to search google with just
that get the device model.

relatively exorbitant cost...

[05:12] <ubottu> netsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network
(like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop
seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy
the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit
[05:12] <AlessonZaire> I wish my grandfather were cool like that lol
[05:12] <elizabeth> no i have a very odd grandpa.
[05:12] <tensorpudding> how kind of floodbot to inform us of what
netsplits are
[05:13] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: it's a built-in webcam?
[05:13] <elizabeth> it was very sweet of him cause i am going to school

and say the chat channel says they don't know to call you. :)
[05:18] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: probably a driver issue

guess it got bored waiting for me.
[05:18] <w0_> keep linux alive! PEACE
[05:19] <elizabeth> what does the driver issue mean?
[05:19] <elizabeth> and how do i fix it?
[05:19] <elizabeth> please

know how to use the internet and programs for the most part lol. he told
me that he had it working earlier with skype but i am not sure if he
tried the web cam out

avoid misuse lol

[05:24] <elizabeth> what information?
[05:24] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: you'll need to open a terminal, and
type some commands
[05:24] <elizabeth> open a terminal?
[05:24] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: yes
[05:24] <tensorpudding> it's a program
[05:24] <elizabeth> how do i do that?
[05:24] <tensorpudding> it's called Terminal
[05:24] <tensorpudding> you'll find it in applications
[05:25] <AlessonZaire> control+alt+T
[05:25] <laiboo> why i can't install PDFLaTex and LaTeX ?
[05:25] <elizabeth> ok got the terminal
[05:25] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: okay, type 'lsusb'
[05:25] <elizabeth> then what
[05:26] <tensorpudding> hit enter
[05:26] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: it'll write a bunch of stuff,
information about all the parts of your computer, including your webcam
[05:26] <elizabeth> it wrote three devices
[05:26] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: do you know what version of ubuntu you
[05:27] <elizabeth> no but i have skype 2.0 on here that he downloaded
for me
[05:27] <elizabeth> if that helps any
[05:27] <kwixson_u> Dumb question: how do I mount a SD card I just stuck
into my netbook?
[05:27] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: do you see your webcame there?
[05:27] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: in the devices
[05:28] <elizabeth> yes i saw the webcam name there. well not the actual
web cam name but its a device called webcam
[05:28] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: okay
[05:28] <kwixson_u> It sometimes just pops up on my desktop. This time it
[05:28] <tensorpudding> what's the ID
[05:28] <elizabeth> 0ac8:3420
[05:28] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: it'll look like four characters, then
a :, then four numbers
[05:28] <milamber> kwixson_u: this will tell you where the filesystem is:
sudo fdisk -l
[05:28] <tensorpudding> huh
[05:29] <milamber> kwixson_u: then you will have to create a directory
and mount the fs there
[05:29] <tensorpudding> that should be supported by skype
[05:29] <tensorpudding> which version of skype do you have
[05:29] <elizabeth> 2.0
[05:29] <tensorpudding> open skype and check the about

[05:30] <tensorpudding> i need a more detailed version

=== JoFo_ is now known as JoFo
[05:30] <kwixson_u> when doing the sudo fdisk -l command how do I
distinguish between devices/drives
[05:31] <tensorpudding> if it doesn't say, well, maybe it's just not new
[05:31] <tensorpudding> skype is up to 2.2
[05:31] <milamber> kwixson_u: the easiest way for you will probably be
the fs type
[05:31] <elizabeth> so can i get a newer version of skype for this
ancient computer? or
[05:32] <RvPup> anyone on tonight thats good with install foulups?
[05:32] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: probably
[05:32] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: what version of ubuntu is it
[05:32] <elizabeth> i still dont know that
[05:32] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: open up System Monitor
[05:32] <elizabeth> how do i find that one out?
[05:32] <elizabeth> where is system monitor?
[05:32] <milamber> kwixson_u: you can also run the command: df to compare
the devices listed to the mount points. and the fs on the card is
probably going to be some sort of fat vs the ext3/4 linux
[05:32] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: it should be under applications
[05:33] <tensorpudding> if your laptop is that old, your grandfather
might have put a rather old version of ubuntu on it
[05:33] <tensorpudding> you might want a newer one
[05:33] <elizabeth> i wish i knew how to get a newer version of it.
[05:33] <elizabeth> i cant find a system monitor.
[05:33] <ActionParsnip> !upgrade
[05:33] <tensorpudding> depending on which version you have, you might
easily upgrade
[05:33] <ubottu> For upgrading, see the instructions at
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also
[05:34] <elizabeth> so what version do i want?
[05:35] <ActionParsnip> elizabeth: what cpu and ram does the system have?
[05:35] <kwixson_u> milamber: The df command shows me only the native
filesystem and one of the two (the one that is always in this netbook) SD
cards I have stuck into the machine.
[05:35] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: i think it's under Applications ->
[05:35] <elizabeth> cpu? ram?
[05:35] <milamber> tensorpudding: lsb_release -r ??
[05:35] <kwixson_u> No mention of the 2nd.
[05:35] <milamber> kwixson_u: can you pastebin the output of sudo fdisk -
l and df?
[05:36] <AlessonZaire> It might be not so wise to upgrade at this moment,
some people are complaining the newest kernel version is having battery
problems with notebooks
[05:36] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: given the age of your machine, it's
not going to be able to run the newest
[05:36] <elizabeth> so what does that mean?
[05:36] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: did you find System Monitor in the
System submenu of Applications?
[05:36] <crash1hd> Can anyone tell me what the limitations are for a wubi
[05:37] <crash1hd> if any
[05:37] <ActionParsnip> Elizabeth: how fast is the cpu? How much ram does
it have? If it has a make and model then what is it and we can use that
to find out :-)
[05:37] <milamber> kwixson_u: then the fs (usually sd something) that is
listed on the fdisk, but not the df is the one that still needs to be
[05:37] <AlessonZaire> crash1hd none :D
[05:37] <tensorpudding> ActionParsnip: she doesn't know about computers,
it's a compaq presario 700
[05:37] <AlessonZaire> <- is on a wubi install now
[05:37] <crash1hd> Would I be able to use wine without issue?
[05:37] <tensorpudding> ActionParsnip: they used amd durons, and had
about 256 MB of RAM in default config
[05:37] <AlessonZaire> crash1hd yes, I use wine perfectly on a wubi
[05:37] <AlessonZaire> It even runs world of warcraft lol

drive is just stored in a f
[05:38] <kwixson_u> http://paste.ubuntu.com/683134/
[05:38] <crash1hd> how about if I choose to give it dedicated hdd space
later? can I transfer it or do I have to reinstall?
[05:38] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: if you can't find system monitor, try
typing lsb_release -r into the terminal you have open, and tell me what
it says
[05:39] <UbuN2> damn
[05:39] <ActionParsnip> crash1hd: you won't be able to access the ubuntu
data from windows but the wubi will be able to access the windows data
from /host
[05:39] <kwixson_u> http://paste.ubuntu.com/683135/
[05:39] <elizabeth> it said no lsb modules are available
[05:39] <crash1hd> ActionParsnip, ahh that makes sense
[05:39] <AlessonZaire> crash1hd the only difference is that you'll have
the ubuntu data and windows data at the same partition, which I find to
be quite convenient, but it's always your choice
[05:40] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: what about lsb_release -a
[05:40] <ActionParsnip> crash1hd: there is a wubi to real install method,
I've not done it personally

[05:41] <milamber> kwixson_u: it doesn't look like the machine recognizes
it at all. can you eject and reinstall, then run dmesg ?
[05:41] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: i think the version of skype available
in ubuntu 11.04 is newer than the one you say you have
[05:42] <ActionParsnip> arooni-mobile: does it pick up if you boot with
it all plugged in?
[05:42] <UbuN2> did u install a .deb file elizabeth ?
[05:42] <tensorpudding> UbuN2: she didn't install it, her grandfather
[05:42] <arooni-mobile> ActionParsnip, havent tried that
[05:42] <UbuN2> ah!
[05:42] <elizabeth> it says skype 2.2 beta for linux.
[05:42] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: try opening the Ubuntu Software
Center, and search for skype
[05:42] <UbuN2> then its latest
[05:43] <elizabeth> where do i find the software center
[05:43] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: you said 2.0 earlier
[05:43] <elizabeth> lol
[05:43] <ActionParsnip> elizabeth: if you install and run cheese, do you
see yourself?
[05:43] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: it's a program
[05:43] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: it'll be under applications
[05:43] <chris4916_> NICK chris4916
[05:43] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: you want to search for and install a
programm called cheese, it's an alternative to skype
[05:44] <solofight> thanks guys adobe 10 has corrected this error of
replacing the opened file with the new one
[05:44] <UbuN2> wht happens when elizabeth executes skype ?!
[05:44] <ActionParsnip> Except doesnt make calls
[05:44] <elizabeth> exactally what happens when i get rid of skype? and
can i talk to people on skype with cheese?
[05:44] <tensorpudding> yes, it can use your webcam to do other things
[05:44] <tensorpudding> no
[05:44] <ActionParsnip> solofight: adobe 10 doesnt exist
[05:44] <tensorpudding> but it does use your webcam
[05:45] <UbuN2> does skype work ?
[05:45] <tensorpudding> if cheese works and skype doesn't it might tell
us what the issue is
[05:45] <elizabeth> well my family only has skype.
[05:45] <elizabeth> oh ok so i have to find cheese program thing to try
it out
[05:45] <elizabeth> where do i find that
[05:45] <kwixson_u> milamber: http://paste.ubuntu.com/683139/
[05:45] <solofight> ActionParsnip: what ! just now i installed Adobe
acrobat X
[05:45] <tensorpudding> you need to open the software center, like i said
[05:45] <UbuN2> does skype work ? <=== elizabeth
[05:45] <tensorpudding> and search for cheese
[05:45] <elizabeth> i dk where the software center is.
[05:46] <elizabeth> and yeah skype the typing part works but my cam and
mic dont.
[05:46] <elizabeth> its a usb cam
[05:46] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: it's in applications
[05:46] <ActionParsnip> elizabeth: skype is notoriously bad at stuff,
webcams will often work in other apps and not skype. There are extra
steps to take to make it work.
[05:46] <UbuN2> ^^
[05:46] <ActionParsnip> Elizabeth: sudo apt-get install cheese
[05:47] <elizabeth> i am not even seeing an applications option either. i
see accesories and thats pretty much it
[05:47] <terr_> ActionParsnip: just jumpin in. Give me something better
than skype
[05:47] <solofight> what software ubuntu uses by default to handle pdf
files ?
[05:47] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: it's at the bottom
[05:47] <elizabeth> my grandpa put a bit torrent on here would that wokr
[05:47] <UbuN2> applications > sound & video > cheese booth webcam
[05:47] <tensorpudding> no
[05:47] <elizabeth> its at the bottom of what
[05:47] <UbuN2> does it work elizabeth
[05:48] <elizabeth> does what work?
[05:48] <UbuN2> applications > sound & video > cheese booth webcam
[05:48] <tensorpudding> it's not going to work, because cheese won't be
installed already...
[05:48] <ActionParsnip> solofight: aaah. Adobe ACROBAT 10. That does
exist, however "adobe 10" does not. Do people run "Microsoft 7" as their
OS too?
[05:48] <elizabeth> where is applications at the bottom of what?
[05:48] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: it's at the bottom of the applications
[05:48] <zay> dear all

(sdb1) and now sda1 only has 3 files in it ....something went wrong huh?
[05:49] <elizabeth> let me put this a little more into perspective for
you. i am a blonde who knows horses not computers lol.
[05:50] <elizabeth> i cant find applications anywere
[05:50] <terr_> elizabeth: my gf knows more than you
[05:50] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: what's at the top-left of the screen
[05:50] <solofight> ActionParsnip: yes people run ms 7 as their os in
cases they want to utilize ms office 2007's excellent features
[05:50] <elizabeth> this chat window
[05:50] <ActionParsnip> Elizabeth: i gave a command to run in terminal,
did it run ok?
[05:50] <zay> I want to remaster the results can directly connect to ldap
[05:50] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: no, on the big bar on the top of the
[05:50] <zay> any body can help me
[05:50] <elizabeth> for the chat window?
[05:50] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: is there a menu saying Applications,
or is there a button with a ring-shaped logo in it?
[05:51] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: above the chat window
[05:51] <solofight> why dont somebody take her system remotely and help
elizabeth ? that would save everybody lots of time
[05:51] <solofight> ?
[05:51] <ActionParsnip> solofight: no, it Microsoft WINDOWS 7. "Microsoft
7" doesn't exist either.
[05:51] <elizabeth> there is nothing above the chat window. its just the
chat window and my background
[05:52] <solofight> ActionParsnip: forgive me for that
[05:52] <tensorpudding> oh christ, you might not even be using gnome
[05:52] <elizabeth> no it says xchat
[05:52] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: what happens when you hit the Print
Screen key
[05:52] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: it should take a screenshot of your
[05:52] <elizabeth> nothing
[05:52] <tensorpudding> okay, you're not using gnome
[05:52] <zruty> I have a SMB share defined for alocal user, how does
that user connect to it with Win?
[05:53] <tensorpudding> and unless i know what you're using it's hard to
help you
[05:53] <elizabeth> i didnt see any change when i hit prntscrn
[05:53] <tensorpudding> how are you opening programs
[05:53] <solofight> elizabeth: allow somebody here to take your system
remotely and help you, it will be over before you know it
[05:53] <elizabeth> with my start menu i dk.
[05:53] <tensorpudding> start...menu?
[05:53] <solofight> whats dk ?
[05:53] <tensorpudding> oh
[05:53] <tensorpudding> what is at the bottom left of your screen?
[05:53] <ActionParsnip> Elizabeth: copy this command: sudo apt-get
install cheese        press Ctrl+Alt+T   and paste the command into the
terminal. Type your password (you will get no feedback) and hit enter to
[05:54] <elizabeth> yeah the little circle at the bottom looks like an
airplain going throught it
[05:54] <tensorpudding> like a K?
[05:54] <elizabeth> one on its face kinda
[05:54] <elizabeth> yeah i can see how it would look like a k on its face
[05:54] <ActionParsnip> solofight: its cool, just makes support easier
when you use full product names
[05:54] <tensorpudding> okay, so you're using kde instead..
[05:55] <elizabeth> whats kde?
[05:55] <tensorpudding> does kde have the software center?
[05:55] <solofight> #kubuntu ?
[05:55] <tensorpudding> it doesn't matter
[05:56] <solofight> clear
[05:56] <tensorpudding> just go to the terminal
[05:56] <tensorpudding> and do 'sudo apt-get install cheese'
[05:56] <solofight> damn wrong window
[05:56] <UbuN2> lol
[05:56] <kwixson_u> Any love for my SD mounting problem?
[05:57] <elizabeth> its spitting out a bunch of info.
[05:58] <UbuN2> yes its getting the software
[05:58] <elizabeth> its asking if i want to continue?
[05:58] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: yes
[05:58] <tensorpudding> it'll ask for a password
[05:58] <tensorpudding> use the one that you login with
[05:58] <elizabeth> it already asked for my password
[05:58] <rodhash> Hi guys.. In lauchpad site how can I download the file
102-disable-page-flipping-v2.patch for my intel driver?
=== timj is now known as timjs
[05:59] <rodhash> I'm not finding it
[05:59] <elizabeth> ok now its done spitting out stuff and is asking for
another command
[05:59] <UbuN2> open it rodhash and click file save as on browser
[05:59] <elizabeth> like before i asked it to install cheese
[06:00] <rodhash> UbuN2: My problem is to find it
[06:01] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: okay, that means that cheese is
[06:01] <elizabeth> ok how do i run it
[06:01] <elizabeth> to see what the problem with my web cam and skype is
[06:01] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: it'll be in the menu of applications,
search for its name
[06:02] <elizabeth> ok i got cheese kinda
[06:02] <elizabeth> it took a picture of me with out me asking too
[06:02] <tensorpudding> okay
[06:02] <tensorpudding> that means the webcam works with cheese
[06:03] <tensorpudding> if it doesn't work with skype, that's probably a
skype issue
[06:03] <tensorpudding> not sure how to fix that
[06:04] <elizabeth> ok thanks anyways. i will talk to my grandpa
tomorrow. you guys have been very awesome tonight/today.
[06:04] <tensorpudding> elizabeth: np

[06:04] <elizabeth> thank you

[06:16] <milamber> !info mysql-workbench-gpl | bullgard4_
[06:16] <ubottu> bullgard4_: Package mysql-workbench-gpl does not exist
in natty
=== DoomsDayHQ is now known as DystaN
[06:18] <milamber> bullgard4_: then i believe not. i use the current from
their site
[06:18] <bullgard4_> milamber: Does -gpl stand for
[06:19] <z3ro3x> I used the alternate cd to install Ubuntu 11.04 into a
virtual machine (I'm experimenting here) with /boot as first primary and
everything else (swap, /, /home) in an encrypted LVM. MY question is, if
I ever want to do a fresh install in the future as opposed to a upgrade,
how do I unlock the encrypted LVM during the setup process and tell it
not to reformat /home? Normally when I do a fresh reinstall I can tell
the partition manager
[06:19] <z3ro3x> not to format /home and I'm good. But with this new
setup it's way more complicated.
[06:19] <milamber> bullgard4_: yes. i thought i got it from the repos,
but i have reported several bugs (that have been fixed). so current is
probably going to be your best bet.
[06:19] <bullgard4_> milamber: What do you mean by "their"? Do you mean
Oracle's website?
[06:21] <milamber> bullgard4_: yes(ish)
[06:22] <crash1hd> ok when dual booting windows 7 and ubuntu is it always
best to install windows first?
[06:22] <crash1hd> I want ubuntu to be the primary and windows to be the
[06:22] <Onlyodin> crash1hd, imho, yes.
[06:22] <crash1hd> where ubuntu takes up like 90% of the hdd
[06:22] <crash1hd> thanks :)
[06:22] <Nicolus> is there a tool on linux to check if two files are
identical or not ?
[06:22] <bullgard4_> milamber: I still do not know if I should download
this package because "The new {MySQL Workbnch} application however still
does not support data Migration which was a part of the old tool set."
[06:22] <Onlyodin> Ubuntu can resize your partitions - at least it did
when I installed it alongside windows.
[06:23] <crash1hd> I just want windows 7 for some games that might be
down the road that I am not able to get working on ubuntu
[06:23] <Onlyodin> Nicolus, md5sum
[06:23] <Nicolus> Onlyodin, sudo apt-get install md5sum ?
[06:23] <crash1hd> Hmm this one might be tricky but how much space should
I dedicate to windows7?
[06:23] <zHammeRz> none
[06:24] <zHammeRz> just get rid of it :)
[06:24] <Onlyodin> Nicolus, man md5sum
[06:24] <crash1hd> haha lol
[06:24] <milamber> bullgard4_: i never used the gui tools, so i don't
know what you would be missing. are you looking at a migration soon?
[06:24] <crash1hd> Like I said I want it for the few things that I cant
get wine to do :)
[06:24] <zHammeRz> can it be done in a v-box?
[06:25] <crash1hd> zHammeRz, no cause I need full hardware support for
those few things
[06:25] <Onlyodin> crash1hd, I'd leave at least 20Gb, if not 30Gb. bear
in mind Ubuntu can read a Windows/NTFS partition, but Windows wont know
what the linux partitions are
[06:25] <crash1hd> zHammeRz, or I would :)
[06:25] <crash1hd> Onlyodin, right :) thanks
[06:26] <Onlyodin> I used to have my windows partition taking up ~80% of
the drive, and I'd store crap on it, so that both environments could
access it.
[06:26] <scarleo> Hi, I cant authorize in some places, like in system
settings, I know password is correct. sudo is working fine. What is
[06:26] <milamber> scarleo: what exactly are you trying to do?
[06:26] <scarleo> milamber: editing user groups
[06:27] <bullgard4_> milamber: I'd like to migrate from my embedded
HSQLDB to a MySQL database along the lines of
[06:27] <scarleo> milamber: when I click advanced button authorization
pops up but password dowsn't work
[06:28] <bullgard4_> scarleo: Please be very careful when editing user
groups. Back up first. You may damage your system easily, and this will
be tediousl to fix.
[06:29] <bullgard4_> -l
[06:29] <scarleo> bullgard4_: ok, I will
[06:29] <milamber> scarleo: what is the error?

[06:32] <bwright> What is the easiest way to get gcc 4.7 on ubuntu?
[06:32] <Nicolus> thanks Onlyodin
[06:32] <milamber> bullgard4_: java written database, eh? i have only
done csv export and import and it has worked pretty well for me.
[06:33] <dcg__> Hi all, anyone with .asoundrc experience about?
[06:33] <milamber> scarleo: not sure why it is doing that, but a
workaround may be to start it from the terminal w/ gksu
[06:33] <Onlyodin> Nicolus, you're welcome.
[06:33] <Nicolus> Onlyodin, see you around :)
[06:35] <bullgard4_> milamber: Yes, my old HSQLDB database is written in
Java. I have tried CSV export. This produces bad results because contents
in one table field often ends with a quotation mark.

getting downloading
[06:48] <dr-willis> never seen a serial keybord other then ps2 ones. ;)
[06:48] <glebihan> cheenu_, not sure actually, some firefox extensions
may help you there
[06:49] <glebihan> cheenu_, I know "Youtube enhancer" (a greasemonkey
script) allows you to download videos from youtube
[06:49] <cheenu_> Should we have to install firefox extension?
[06:50] <vehemoth> on the linux line in grub.cfg what does ro mean?
[06:50] <cheenu_> Is youtube enhancer a package????
[06:50] <glebihan> cheenu_, no it's not a a package
[06:50] <dr-willis> vehemoth: read only perhaps
[06:50] <cheenu_> then how can i download?
[06:50] <cheenu_> any web sites?
[06:50] <glebihan> cheenu_, http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/33042

[06:52] <admiralvorian> dr-willis, i have an rs232 rfid reader and I need
it to output to keystrokes
[06:53] <vehemoth> dr-willis: I don't see how that would make sense,
here's an example "linux     /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-686 root=/dev/sda2 ro
[06:53] <cheenu_> how to use youtube enhancer????need to download it???
=== Alpha is now known as Guest31948
=== Guest31948 is now known as Apha
[06:54] <dr-willis> vehemoth: the root fs is mounted read only. rhen
remounted rw. so it can get fscked if nweded. i recall
[06:54] <cheenu_> pls give me exact detail since i am the begineer
[06:55] <dr-willis> cheenu_: if its a ff ectension. go to rhe ff
extensions web site and get it.
[06:55] <scarleo> Chromium is extremely slow on my Ubuntu machine, almost
complete unusable. It just says "Sendingg request..." forever before
loading page. Does anyone have any tips on that?
[06:56] <Lasers> What's wrong with youtube-dl?
[06:56] <vehemoth> dr-willis: okay, so if it didn't already have ro I
shouldn't add it
[06:56] <scarleo> Firefox is quick by the way so it feels if it's
chromium and not my machine
[06:56] <Lasers> cheenu_: Have you tried "youtube-dl"
[06:56] <vehemoth> dr-willis: I got that from the os-prober section
[06:57] <Lasers> scarleo: Run "htop" and see if Chromium is eating up all
the processors. That can happen. (I think because of Flash).
[06:58] <dr-willis> vehemoth: normally you dont edit grub.cfg directly.
[06:58] <scarleo> Lasers: thanks, it's not related to flash, even
google.com takes forever
[06:58] <scarleo> Lasers: but I'll check top
[06:59] <dr-willis> scarleo: try entering the ip address see if thats
also slow.
[06:59] <vehemoth> dr-willis: I know but I had to replace that part from
os-prober with a custom one so that I could use hibernate, I didn't know
which way was best so I moved the os-prober script and added to 40_custom
[06:59] <Lasers> scarleo: "ping google.com"
[06:59] <dr-willis> also test with a diffrent browser. it sounds like a
dns issue.. a weird one
[07:00] <dr-willis> vehemoth: yep thats a proper way. ;)
[07:00] <cheenu_> ya i tried youtube-dl but also its not coming
[07:00] <dcg__> admiralvorian: I believe there is serial keyboard support
available (or at least there used to be :) try searching for "linux
serial barcodescanner" and "linux kernel serial keyboard"

on all days except monday. the script does following: checking label ->
mounting device -> copying files -> unmount device -> eject device. On
monday he somehow fails mount the device with follo

[08:58] <Nicolus> i dont have to rename a lot of files.. only few.. so i
will do the normal way :)
[08:58] <ActionParsnip> Nicolus:
[08:59] <Nicolus> anyways thanks :) will look at that site
[08:59] <oCean> ActionParsnip: does it still exist? The page is from 2009
[08:59] <jack__> anyone know how to encrypt a document using someones
elses gpg public key?
[08:59] <ActionParsnip> oCean: possibly
[08:59] <ActionParsnip> oCean: i'd use bash personally
[08:59] <oCean> ActionParsnip: same here
[09:00] <Nicolus> that site looks quite informative.. I will try that
solution which u guys provided me.. thanks again
[09:00] <cristian_c> Hi
[09:00] <cristian_c> I've got a keyboard called Media Wireless Desktop by
Labtec. I tried to set the keyboard shortcuts directly from the
Applications-> Settings-> Xfce4 settings manager -> Keyboard->
Applications shortcuts. I clicked on Add and for example I typed the
command 'evolution'. I pressed Ok and then the system asked me to type
the key on the keyboard.
[09:00] <cristian_c> In this case the key was correctly recognized as
XF86Mail and has been included in the list of shortcuts. But if I press
the mail key, it always happens the same problem, that instead of opening
evolution, the pc goes into stand-by. Is anyone able to understand what
the problem is due? I even tried keytouch editor and it recognized the
[09:01] <cristian_c> But after setting up the keyboard with keytouch, if
I press the 'mail' key, the PC goes always on standby for no reason

[09:15] <amitrana> I cant find it using synaptic-manager
[09:15] <oCean> amitrana: support for 11.10 (beta) in #ubuntu+1 channel
[09:15] <dr-willis> whats invest-applet?
[09:16] <amitrana> It lets you track your investment (stock prices) right
on your desktop
[09:16] <BlackAss> How to know my FireWire is up or detected or not

[09:17] <dr-willis> BlackAss: you may need to load the right modules.
[09:17] <Mumie> so a working line would be: "echo DIGD | sudo tee

[09:25] <ubottu> aple You could run one os inside a virtual machine:
There are several solutions for running other operating systems (or their
programs) inside Ubuntu, while using the native CPU as much as possible:
!QEmu (with !KQemu), !VirtualBox, !VMWare, as well as !WINE and !Cedega
for Windows applications

tweaking the distro
[09:26] <ActionParsnip> aple: virtualbox is nice and simple
[09:27] <ActionParsnip> cillo564: there are settings apps in the menus,
depends what you want to tweak...#
[09:27] <aple> Are there any cons to running a VirtualBox?
[09:27] <aple> This looks perfect:
http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/virtualbox :)
[09:28] <ActionParsnip> aple: running both OSes at the same times uses a
lot of ram and cpu
[09:28] <cillo564> ActionParsnip: I was thinking is ther more graphical
tools than what comes default in gnome or kde system tools
[09:28] <ActionParsnip> aple: if you want native USB access then install
the closed source vitualbox from the virtualbox ppa
[09:28] <ActionParsnip> cillo564: I guess there are, not sure though.
What do you want to tweak?
[09:29] <ActionParsnip> cillo564: do you have ubuntu-tweak too?
[09:29] <Soothsayer> Where exactly is the list of programs that run on

[09:29] <ActionParsnip> Soothsayer: do you mean at boot, or at login?
[09:30] <Soothsayer> ActionParsnip, I'm not sure. When do services like

[09:31] <ActionParsnip> aple: simple yet effective
[09:31] <ActionParsnip> aple: vmware also exists
[09:32] <Soothsayer> ActionParsnip, and where's the startup script file
[09:32] <ActionParsnip> lboken: installing gnome3 on natty will more than
likely break stuff, just so you know
[09:32] <ActionParsnip> Soothsayer: /etc/rc.d afaik
[09:33] <aple> ActionParsnip: What was that bit about USB? I have an
external HD I need to access frequently but probably not from Ubuntu
(which would be in the virtualbox).
[09:34] <dr-willis> aple the usb stuff is for directly acessing a usb
device. not needed in your example.
[09:34] <chris--> susundberg, Jordan_U: hey its me again. just wanted to
say that mount by label seems to work fine :) just one more question
since i cant test it at the moment: can i also eject the device by label
then ? /usr/bin/eject /dev/disk/by-label/$LABEL ?
[09:34] <ActionParsnip> aple: then if you want access to it then you will
need to add the virtualbox ppa and install the closed source one from
there: http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

is there more apps like ubuntu-tweak?
[09:35] <susundberg> chris--: afaik sure you can " The device

always add the extra software source later and install virtualbox-4.1

for :D
[09:38] <ActionParsnip> qmr: should is a wondeful word
[09:38] <Soothsayer> ActionParsnip, hmm that file does not exist for me.
[09:38] <ActionParsnip> qmr: kill it off
[09:38] <Soothsayer> nor can I find mongodb in bump.

this ,,, ..mm ahhh   get a rain coat?
[09:39] <qmr> when did ubuntu become "beta test our crap on unsuspecting

[09:39] <burg> is there any 11.10 beta available for download?
[09:39] <ActionParsnip> qmr: lsb_release -sc    will tell you
[09:39] <dr-willis> qmr every non lts is that way basically.
[09:39] <burg> is there any 11.10 beta available for download?
[09:40] <ActionParsnip> burg: yes it went Beta1 on the 1st Sept
[09:40] <qmr> "natty" I believe
[09:40] <qmr> 1104

[09:40] <rnz> anybody know how to disable putting daemon scripts to

[09:40] <Soothsayer> ActionParsnip, oh, I found mongodb in the Bump gui..
but I can't seem to edit it

nobody replied me in #postgresql ...
[09:43] <ActionParsnip> qmr: have you reported a bug?
[09:43] <qmr> I've had about 10x in last week when desktop has stopped
responding requiring multiple GDM restarts, and 3 times system has
crashed completely
[09:44] <qmr> I sent shuttleworth some hate tweets.
[09:44] <html> qmr,   bs you say ? well i do say that since 11.04 we
offically have a linux distro just like VISTA , and 11,10 is going to be
like win7 (its a toss up)
[09:45] <Soothsayer> What all are the startup script files on ubuntu?
[09:45] <qmr> html: is that good or bad? :P
[09:45] <Sidewinder1> qmr, I stick with LTS versions; unless ones hdw is
cutting/bleeding edge, for me, that's the best bet. Sorry you're having
problems w/Natty.
[09:45] <qmr> Soothsayer: /etc/rc.d/
[09:46] <Soothsayer> qmr, I don't have that file.
[09:46] <Soothsayer> I have an rc.local (file) and rc0.d , rc1.d, etc,
etc which are directories
[09:46] <qmr> well that's not quite correct. it's /etc/init.d/, and
/etc/rc[1-6].d for various runlevels

[09:47] <qmr> ActionParsnip: single user system
[09:47] <Soothsayer> qmr, so /etc/init.d/apache2 is what causes apache
to start at boot?
[09:48] <ActionParsnip> qmr: no, Ubuntu is a multi-user OS
[09:48] <ActionParsnip> qmr: make ANOTHER user and see if it's the same
with vanilla settings
[09:48] <qmr> Soothsayer: that's teh apache control script, it's started
from ...
[09:48] <qmr> why don't you put that in a memo and entitle it "Shit I
Already Know"
[09:49] <auronandace> qmr: seriously, watch the language
[09:49] <qmr> Soothsayer: the bit that starts apache is going to be
something like /etc/rc2.d/S20apache2
[09:50] <ActionParsnip> qmr: your settings for nautilus may be corrupted,
if the app reads them it may hang. A new user with default settings
behaving the same way as the current user will point to the app being
defective, if it is ok then it is simply your user settings which are bad
[09:50] <qmr> it's not a regularly occuring problem though
[09:51] <ActionParsnip> qmr: its worth exploring
[09:51] <uabn93> hi
[09:51] <qmr> hai
[09:51] <Sidewinder1> qmr, And if the apps defective, you could try
totally removing it and reinstalling (Nautilus).
[09:52] <Soothsayer> qmr, wow, these files go over my head. I expected
there to be just one line saying apache2ctl restart or something
[09:52] <Sidewinder1> qmr, But you probably already know that. :D

before but it no longer works, I use Dell Vostro 1310 and i"m on natty
[09:52] <Myrtti> actuallty, sudo service apache2 start, or somesuch
[09:52] <qmr> I just need to install 10.04 or whenever ubuntu was last
[09:52] <uabn93> i downloaded the latest mupen64plus, ran install.sh in
terminal, it installed. now what? how do i run the program?
[09:53] <qmr> Soothsayer: what are you wanting to change about how apache
runs or when it runs or?
[09:53] <wh1zz0> Hello everyone, my hibernate does not work. It worked
before but it no longer works, I use Dell Vostro 1310 and i"m on natty..
Please how can I get it working again?
[09:53] <ActionParsnip> uabn93: if you run:   which muppen64plus    does
it output anything?
=== fisted_ is now known as fisted
[09:53] <Sidewinder1> qmr, 10.04 works (almost) flawlessly for me.
[09:53] <qmr> wh1zz0: tried booting old kernels?
[09:53] <Soothsayer> qmr, I want to actually change the startup
configuration used for mongodb, not apache.
[09:53] <wh1zz0> qmr: How do I do that? When it's loading I hold shift
[09:53] <wh1zz0> ?
[09:54] <Soothsayer> normally, I started it with the command sudo mongod
--dbpath /var/lib/mongodb/      but I want to see how does it start on
[09:54] <qmr> wh1zz0: when your computer starts you should see a GRUB
screen with your configured OS's listed.. old kernels will be an option
[09:54] <qmr> wh1zz0: did this loss of functionality happen after a
kernel update? Or other software update?
[09:54] <aple> ActionParsnip: So, once I make this VirtualBox, will it
save it's state or do I have to do that manually? For instance, if I
download a bunch of apps and such on the Ubuntu virtualbox, will they
load the next time I hit "Start" or do I have to save that state lest I
start off on a clean Ubuntu install every time?
[09:54] <uabn93> ActionParsnip: its in /usr/local/bin/mupen64plus how do
i go about opening it?
[09:55] <qmr> aple: the virtualbox is persistent
[09:55] <ActionParsnip> uabn93: you can make a launcher on the desktop to
run that comamnd and you can then double click the launcher
[09:55] <wh1zz0> qmr: I have just one OS .. which is ubuntu.. when my
computer starts it just shows DELL, then purple and then writes ubuntu
and heads to the login screen
[09:56] <qmr> wh1zz0: it sounds like you have timeout 0 in grub or such
[09:56] <movan2011> Hi there. I'm using "classic" Gnome (2.32) on Ubuntu
11.04 and added a drawer applet to a left-hand panel. When you first add
thing into the panel it work fine, but once you log out (or killall
gnome-panel) it doesn't show when you click it.
[09:56] <ActionParsnip> aple: you can stop systems and save state, or you
can shut them down etc. The updates and changes you make are persistent
between boots
[09:56] <qmr> wh1zz0: or try pressing shift key when your computer comes
[09:56] <wh1zz0> qmr: I'm guessing it must have happened after I
installed something, but I am not sure what because I installed a whole
lot of things on that day
[09:56] <damo22> wh1zz0: hold left shift while pc boots
[09:57] <movan2011> Eventually figured out how to get it showing but now
it seems oriented in the top left corner of the screen and I can't move
it and ubuntu seems to ignore any changes I make to its position

[09:57] <wh1zz0> qmr: So which of the kernels do you sugges I boot?
[09:57] <qmr> wh1zz0: NOT whatever the highest numbered one is. go
backwards one by one until you find one that hibernates properly
[09:57] <aple> ActionParsnip, qmr: So interesting :)))
[09:58] <wh1zz0> qmr, damo22: But will this affect any setting I have or
will it roll back any installed program?
[09:58] <qmr> wh1zz0: no. this is booting a different kernel image.
you're still running the same software
[09:58] <damo22> wh1zz0: it will just load a different kernel, all the
apps stay intact
[09:59] <Brutus-> Hi
[09:59] <qmr> herro
[10:00] <wh1zz0> qmr, damo22: Great.. Thanks for this.. Will try that
[10:00] <damo22> Ave Brutus maximus
[10:01] <Brutus-> i can't find the acpid deamon listed among the
processes in the system monitor. Is acpid the name of the daemon?
[10:01] <Brutus-> damo22, :D
[10:01] <Brutus-> damo22, ave a te
[10:02] <uabn93> ActionParsnip: for some reason, creating a shortcut
doesn't open the program
[10:02] <ActionParsnip> uabn93: you can run: alacarte    and add to the
menu that way
[10:04] <damo22> there are way too many verbs in latin that mean to kill
[10:05] <damo22> and yet we use the english version to kill a system
process in linux
[10:08] <jasef> Hey uhm, I'm getting ready to fresh install 11.10 over my
11.04 installation, but I just remembered I chose to encrypt my home
folder, is there any way to reverse this so all my files are accessible
when I install 11.10?
[10:10] <damo22> jasef: make sure you know the password that encypts your
data, and preferably which algorithm
[10:11] <jasef> I know my password, but I don't know what algorithm
Ubuntu encrypts home folders with.
[10:11] <damo22> jasef: good point, neither do i
[10:12] <dr-willis> when in doubt... backup... ;)
[10:12] <damo22> jasef: is your home folder on a separate partition?
[10:13] <Brutus-> i can't find the acpid deamon listed among the
processes in the system monitor. Is acpid the name of the daemon?
[10:13] <aeplus> full disk encryption is awesome, but it does not seem to
be available on the main installation media (alternate install CD
supports it though)
[10:13] <ActionParsnip> I think its a big headache
[10:14] <damo22> ActionParsnip: i agree

[10:15] <Dori922> whats a good guide for learning fdisk? that explains
cylinders, heads etc...
[10:15] <uabn93> ActionParsnip: i tried it all and nothing seems to work.
should i restart or something?
=== Badgerpo1 is now known as Badgerpoo
[10:16] <damo22> Dori922: cylinders/heads/sectors are not really relevant
in todays hardware as everything is logical block addressing
[10:16] <kescc> how do i "reboot your computer and select the Linux
kernel 3.0 entry on your GRUB boot loader."
[10:17] <dr-willis> Dori922: wikipedia pages on hard drives and
partitions is a good start.
[10:17] <uabn93> kescc: use your keyboard arrows
[10:17] <kescc> uabn93 what do you mean, when
[10:17] <aeplus> lol
[10:17] <damo22> Dori922: although if you are doing something strange
like rebuilding a usb-zip drive you might need it
[10:17] <kescc> uabn93 when at reboot i should use arrows?
[10:18] <kescc> uabn93 i dont even know what is GRUB, explaine please
[10:18] <aple1> How much RAM should I allocate for this Ubuntu VirtualBox
[10:18] <aple1> 4gb total
[10:18] <oCean> kescc: explain what are you trying to do? There is no 3.0
kernel in current ubuntu version
[10:18] <aple1> Doing a lot of Photoshop on Win7
[10:18] <ActionParsnip> uabn93: what will rebooting achieve?
[10:18] <damo22> aple1: probably not more than 50% of your total ram?
[10:19] <aple1> I was thinking 768mb.
[10:19] <kescc> oCean yes it is, i am trying
[10:19] <aple1> Think Ubuntu will run smoothly with that?
[10:19] <ActionParsnip> uabn93: try: cd ~/Desktop; ln -s
[10:19] <Dori922> damo22: I have a server with a 1tb drive and want to
have ~ 50gb in the server partition and 950gb in a storage partition..
then subdivide the storage partition into different logical
partitions(for different users)
[10:19] <uabn93> kescc: grub is the black screen that shows up when you
boot up your computer. when you see that screen, u get 10 seconds to
choose which operating system to boot. use the up and down arrows and
enter to select
[10:19] <Dori922> damo22: when i use fdisk it asks me about stuff like
cylinders :o
[10:19] <damo22> Dori922: thats not too hard, try gparted
[10:19] <oCean> kescc: that kernel is from a PPA, those are not supported
3rd party repositories. Be very careful when using PPA's
[10:20] <kescc> kescc i dont get that, i have only ubuntu on this machine
[10:20] <kescc> uabn93 ^
[10:20] <Dori922> damo22: isnt that a gui system? i dont have a gui on
the server :s
[10:20] <ultrixx> jasef: ubuntu uses aes+xts for harddisk encryption
[10:20] <damo22> Dori922: oh okay, then i know how to do it
[10:21] <damo22> Dori922: it will be painful from command line though
[10:21] <uabn93> kescc: if you only have ubuntu, then a list will show up
when you have more that one kernel installed
[10:21] <Dori922> damo22: if i had a gui it would be fine but i dont :P
unless i install a gnome gui and then uninstall when the partitions are
[10:21] <jasef> ultrixx, thanks. I'm thinking I might just go the easy
cheap way and copy the files out and then back in after installing 11.10
[10:22] <damo22> Dori922: perhaps you can boot the server into a livecd
and use gparted
[10:23] <damo22> Dori922: so you dont have to touch the server install,
just run the livecd temporarily while you partition the drive in a gui
[10:23] <vanquish349> how do i check systems specks
[10:23] <lng> hi! I need to install libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0, but it's not
present on my Ubuntu. Do I need to add the repo for it?
[10:23] <Dori922> damo22: can i do that -after- servers installed?
[10:23] <lng> or how do I install it?
[10:23] <ActionParsnip> lng: what is the output of: lsb_release -sc
[10:23] <oCean> vanquish349: there are several ways.. lspci, lsusb, cat
/proc/cpuinfo, cat /proc/meminfo etc. Running sudo lshw will give a
comprehensive list of your hardware config
[10:24] <damo22> Dori922: sure why not..
[10:24] <vanquish349> thanks
[10:24] <lng> ActionParsnip: I have lucid
[10:24] <Dori922> damo22: thanks :D *new*
[10:25] <damo22> Dori922: are you sure you want separate partitions for
each user, or just a partition for /home
[10:26] <ActionParsnip> lng: then you may need to upgrade to maverick, or
find a ppa with the app
[10:26] <knoppix> tendua
[10:26] <ActionParsnip> lng: mixing packages between releases is not
advised or supported
[10:27] <lng> ActionParsnip: how do I upgrade to maverick?
[10:27] <damo22> Dori922: i think its possible to set up disk quotas for
each user without giving them physical restriction by partition
[10:27] <lng> ActionParsnip: do I need livecd?
[10:27] <ActionParsnip> !upgrade | lng
[10:27] <ubottu> lng: For upgrading, see the instructions at
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also
[10:27] <lng> k
[10:27] <lng> tnx
[10:27] <uabn93> ActionParsnip: that didn't work. is there a way to run
it without it being installed? maybe i should look for an unoff. repo

[10:29] <damo22> Dori922: you can do that with permissions
[10:29] <damo22> Dori922: on the same partition
[10:29] <Dori922> damo22: so im practicing with seperate partitions so i
can encrypt etc...
[10:29] <dr-willis> Dori922: you can just set proper modes to stop that
[10:30] <maxii> hi all
[10:30] <Dori922> dr-willis: damo22: will partitioning give no benifits
at all? :s
[10:30] <dr-willis> Dori922: i cant really think if any
[10:31] <dr-willis> unless they are on diff hds.
[10:31] <dr-willis> then you could see some speed gains i guess
[10:31] <maxii> wats new with ubuntu 11.04
[10:31] <damo22> Dori922: partitioning means you can easily back up an
encypted partition using dd
[10:32] <lng> ActionParsnip: so simple. on Gento it would took me 2 or 3
days to get all of the packages compiled, rebuit
[10:32] <Dori922> damo22: that will be handy though :P
[10:32] <uabn93> !user group
[10:32] <aple1> ActionParsnip: Sorry to keep bumming you for help, but is
there somewhere I need to put the ubuntu .iso or does it only need to
load once?
[10:32] <Dori922> damo22: might be worth the extra effort...
[10:33] <damo22> Dori922: i shudder at the thought of encrypting a whole
partition though
[10:33] <ActionParsnip> aple1: put it wherever you want
[10:33] <damo22> Dori922: you will suffer a speed loss
[10:33] <aple1> So it only needs loaded once?
[10:33] <aple1> Then I can delete it?
[10:33] <aple1> Or will the iso always need to be fetched?
[10:33] <ActionParsnip> aple1: you just tell the virtualbox to use it, be
sure you MD5 test the ISO before you use it
[10:33] <Dori922> damo22: the partitions are only gonna be ~20gb though
and they need to be as secure as possible, i have a i7 8core cpu with 8gb
ram so im hoping that keeps speed loss low
[10:34] <aple1> MD5?
[10:34] <ActionParsnip> aple1: once the OS is installed, you can delete
the instal ISO if you wish
[10:34] <jasef> md5sums are sexy.
[10:34] <ActionParsnip> !md5 | aple1
[10:34] <ubottu> aple1: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files

clock speed and not the overclocked speed which is set in the bios?

find it difficult to get any help at all

[10:36] <uhm_> I've just restarted my Ubuntu box and nvidia-drivers are
not loaded: unity is not working fall back to GNOME2 sessione with awful
[10:36] <uhm_> please help
[10:36] <uabn93> Well, im outta here
[10:37] <uhm_> nvidia-drivers are installed and they are working till now

[10:37] <ActionParsnip> uhm_: try: sudo nvidia-xconfig      then reboot
[10:37] <uabn93> can't solve this crud
[10:37] <damo22> Dori922: but if you stick with proper unix file
permissions and a single partition, it should be easy to get support
[10:37] <uhm_> ActionParsnip: but I have no xorg.conf files
[10:37] <uhm_> and nvidia-drivers worked liek a charm till now
[10:37] <uhm_> *like
[10:38] <Dori922> damo22: right now its a demo system with nothing bar
the server on the whole hard drive so i can trash it as often as possible
until i know how to encrypt.. once they are connected to an account and
encrypted, im hoping there arnt many ways to go wrong(users will only be
able to read and write)

[10:40] <Hyperbyte> kvarley, where are you looking for your CPU speed?
cat /proc/cpuinfo ?
[10:40] <damo22> Dori922: one thing i know for sure, if there is a
physical disk error, likely you will lose the whole partition rather than
just a sector from a file
[10:40] <Badgerpoo> My Ubuntu 11.04 PC lost it's global ipv6 address
yesterday. It still has a link local address, but is now ignoring the RA
packets. tcpdump sees the RA packets arriving, and some other ipv6
traffic on eth0. The network widget has been set to "ignore" and
"automatic" but neither work.
[10:41] <kvarley> Hyperbyte: In System Monitor and cpuinfo it shows the
2.93GHz speed rather than 4GHz. The output of my cpuinfo can be found
here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/683403/
[10:42] <Hyperbyte> kvarley, /proc/cpuinfo even shows 1.2 ghz. I'd say
there is CPU scaling active on your system (to decrease warmth and power
usage of CPU), which ignores the BIOS overclock.
[10:44] <kvarley> Hyperbyte: CPU scaling running within Ubuntu or as part
of the hardware or something?
[10:44] <damo22> Dori922: in my opinion you should chop the remainder of
the terabyte in half and use one just for backups of the main one
[10:44] <Dori922> damo22: chop as in make primary partitions?
[10:45] <Hyperbyte> kvarley, which Ubuntu version?
[10:45] <kristoffer_> help me i messed up my system by following this
guide: http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Install-Linux-Kernel-3-0-on-
Ubuntu-11-04-217409.shtml and i got errors so i tried to reboot but it
doesent come to the login screen just that Ubuntu loader, and then to
some text with no gUI that tells me to login and password, how can i
enter gRUB ?
[10:45] <Dori922> damo22: im just pasting this convo to my boss now see
if he still wants me to partition :P *intern*
[10:45] <kvarley> Hyperbyte: 11.04 Desktop 64-bit
[10:45] <damo22> Dori922: eg keep it simple with 1 partition for / one
for /home one for swap and one for backups
[10:45] <cheenu> Hyperbyte, : ok thanks...wru from?

[10:46] <ubottu> Cheenu: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all

[10:47] <Hyperbyte> kvarley, hrm... not sure actually. My CPU on 11.04
x86_64 is scaling too, but no idea what part of the OS (assuming for a
second it is the OS) is responsible for it.
[10:48] <skpl> can someone help me please? i installed gnome-shell but
forgot to tell my machine to load the gdm, so it's trying to logon
automatically without success
[10:48] <damo22> Dori922: then you can backup the MBR as well so you keep
the whole partition table in one place, with 4 partitions they can all be
[10:48] <Seryth> michael_p hey :)
[10:48] <michael_p> hey
[10:49] <Hyperbyte> kvarley, I suppose it could be the BIOS as well, if
you have some cool 'n quiet feature enabled. Sorry, no idea anymore. I
don't overclock, so never ran into this.
[10:49] <kvarley> Hyperbyte: It's strange isn't it. This computer came
with windows 7 on it and that also said the stock speed and not the
overclocked one. I'd like to know how to turn scaling off for when I want
to encode video or do something cpu intensive. Forums post maybe?
[10:49] <michael_p> just getting the dvd version
[10:49] <Seryth> cd*
[10:49] <Dori922> damo22: and then with permissions ill be able to keep
users as only having read/write permissions for their "home" drives(and
set quota's to stop overuse?)
[10:49] <kvarley> Hyperbyte: I bought the pc as a prebuilt custom system
which came overclocked so I guess I'll have to look! Thanks for all the
help anyway :)
[10:49] <Hyperbyte> kvarley, you could try to max out the CPU and see
what /proc/cpuinfo reports.
[10:49] <damo22> Dori922: correct (home directories)
[10:50] <damo22> Dori922: they would all be sharing one /home partition
[10:50] <Hyperbyte> kvarley, /proc/cpuinfo will always report the current
megahertz the CPU is scaled to after "cpu MHz", not the maximum. It
could be that it's scaling it to the overclocked value, while other tools
still report the stock information.
[10:51] <Hyperbyte> kvarley, so by maxing it out and seeing what
/proc/cpuinfo says you'll learn what value it's really running at when it
[10:51] <skpl> is there anyway i can get ubuntu to load the gdm from the
terminal instead of trying to login automaticaslly?
[10:52] <kvarley> Hyperbyte: All 4 cores run at 2.93GHz when encoding,
which is maxed out to the stock value...hmmmm
[10:53] <damo22> skpl: do you mean you want to disable gdm from starting
at boot, then launch it manually from the console?
[10:53] <kristoffer_> please help me i messed up my system by following
this guide: http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Install-Linux-Kernel-3-
0-on-Ubuntu-11-04-217409.shtml and i got errors so i tried to reboot and
now it doesent come to the login screen just that Ubuntu loader screen
and then it freezes, and then to some text with no gUI if i go crazy on
the keyboard while the ubuntu startup screen is loading that tells me to
login and password, what
[10:53] <kristoffer_> should i do now and how can i enter gRUB, like it
sais on the guide?
[10:54] <jrib> kristoffer_: just choose the earlier kernel in grub
[10:54] <kristoffer_> jrib how do i enter it?
[10:54] <Dori922> dddbmt: okey so in /home primary partition all users
are added and in that partition their own directories are stored(ie user1
has "User1Homedir" with a 20gb disk quota and permissions to only access
that folder)..
[10:54] <jrib> kristoffer_: hold shift during boot
[10:54] <xxzz> hello where i can find netbook edition download
[10:54] <Lasers> !unr | xxzz
[10:54] <ubottu> xxzz: Starting with Ubuntu 11.04, the Ubuntu Netbook
Edition is no longer being offered as a separate install as Unity is now
standard for all Ubuntu desktop installs.
[10:54] <kristoffer_> jrib ok ill try
[10:55] <dddbmt> Dori922, huh?
[10:55] <Dori922> woops
[10:55] <xxzz> ok so i get 32 bit and install it, i trust the same should
work with kbuntu then
[10:55] <damo22> Dori922: yes
[10:56] <Dori922> thanks :D damo22 !
[10:56] <dddbmt> ;)
[10:56] <aeplus> xxzz, i got 11.04 installed on my mini9 with 4gigs of hd
space... it requires some workarounds
[10:57] <ActionParsnip> there is a 3rd party ppa for the old netbook
interface if you desire it...
[10:57] <skpl> damo22, well what i did was install gnome shell and i know
this breaks unity, so what i would like to do is select gnome-shell from
the gdm menu buit i have my computer set to login automatically, which it
is trying to do unsuccesfuylly right now, is there anyway to load gdm
without having started X yet?
[10:57] <damo22> Dori922: once you have the partitioning done and grub
installed, you should back up the MBR for your server so should you lose
the partition table you can recover the /home partition with all their
[10:57] <padi999> Hi all, I would like to ask if there exist a simple and
quick image-by-image editor for only changing image-name and meta data,
nothing else. I would like this for pix from the digicam to archive the

great but not for this kind of task. Please don't TLDR' me ^^, thx!)
[10:58] <ActionParsnip> padi999: shotwell maybe

[11:00] <aple1> ActionParsnip: Yeah, good checksum :)
[11:00] <ActionParsnip> aple1: good
[11:01] <skpl> damo22, no, that didnt bring up the login screen
[11:01] <teddyroosebelt> is it worth running dist-upgrade for the new

[11:01] <jrib> padi999: try exiv2 if you want something command-line or
just use your favorite language's exif library

[11:02] <damo22> Dori922: no worries
[11:02] <padi999> jrib: obviously I need to see the image I am
metatagging/renaming while I go through the images
[11:02] <damo22> skp1: (EE) or (WW)
[11:02] <jrib> padi999: so?
[11:03] <padi999> so a commandline tool does not help here
[11:03] <padi999> What I need is a program that shows me a picture and
editable metadata on the side and the name of the file, too. Then an
arrow that sends me to the next picture, simple, right?

offering you options
[11:04] <skpl> damo22, i got a fatal server error
[11:05] <padi999> This is for ehancing the workflow of the process.
[11:05] <ActionParsnip> padi999: shotwell and f-spot allow metadata
editing and renaming....
[11:05] <damo22> skp1: does the error message fit on one line?
[11:05] <padi999> ActionParsnip: ActionParsnip perfect

[11:06] <padi999> ActionParsnip: Of course a lot of programs provide what
I need but I need to have easy access to that. Not having to click
through all menues on every picture
[11:06] <guest34> padi what's your interest in metatagging and renaming
[11:06] <skpl> damo22, alli wanna do is load my login screen so i can
select gnome-shell as my session
[11:07] <padi999> guest34: sorting
[11:08] <guest34> that's rather vauge. the reason i ask is because i am
very into tagging, semantics and organization.

[11:09] <burg> will ubuntu11.10 come with gnome too? or just unity?
[11:09] <aple1> How can I tell if my PC is compatible with Ubuntu 64?
[11:09] <Seryth> .__.
[11:09] <Seryth> aple1 can you run 64bit applications?
[11:10] <devcalais> How do I forcefully close an open application? Sort
of a CTRL+ALT+DEL method.. ?
[11:10] <guest34> yes padi. that's exactly what i want, for like all
information oO i am actively working to become set up for this. how
committed are you to the endeavor?
[11:10] <ActionParsnip> burg: unity will run in gnome. unity is not a DE
[11:10] <tonysan> My server constantly eats out swap, and then
thrashing. I believe it is due to mysql server tuning, how do I detect
thrashing in cron?
[11:10] <ActionParsnip> aple1: if you are using a Ubuntu guest OS, then
you need to see if your CPU will run 64bit guest OSes. Not all 64bit CPUs
can do this
[11:10] <burg> ActionParsnip, i`ve just installed 11.10 beta in virtual
machine, and i noticed that i can`t chose to login with gnome 2 (like in
[11:10] <padi999> guest34: phew, I just started browsing on the topic and
I cannot imagine noone ever wanted to do something like this. ^^
[11:11] <Badgerpoo> Fixed my ipv6 issue, when you firewall all ipv6
traffic it doesn't work! :P
[11:11] <ActionParsnip> burg: unity-2D replaces Ubuntu Classic which is
in Natty
[11:11] <Sidewinder1> devcalais, kill "the-process-name".
[11:11] <aple1> Seryth: Yeah, but when I tried to fire up an Ubuntu
virtualbox, it says, "This kernel requires an x86-64 cpu, but only
detected i686. Please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU."
[11:11] <ActionParsnip> burg: Oneiric uses Gnome3
[11:11] <aple1> ActionParsnip: That's probably the problem then.
[11:11] <Seryth> aple1 it's probably VB set up wrong
[11:11] <aple1> Seryth: O rly?
[11:11] <ActionParsnip> aple1: then you should check your BIOS has the
virtual 64bit guests feature enabled
[11:12] <ActionParsnip> aple1: check if your CPU also can perform the
[11:12] <Seryth> aple1 have you got the 64 bit version of VB?
[11:12] <damo22> skpl: did you get gnome-shell from a ppa?
[11:12] <devcalais> Whats the terminal command to find what your active
processes are?
[11:12] <devcalais> :P
[11:12] <ActionParsnip> aple1: I suggest you take the easy road and use
32bit Ubuntu
[11:12] <Seryth> devcalais have you got htop installed?
[11:12] <padi999> guest34: the suggestion by ActionParsnip to use
Shotwell is actually quite good, I'd say. Just need to find the shortcut
to "modify tags" and "renaming" and I'm good to go
[11:12] <burg> ActionParsnip, so it won`t come by default with the
classic desktop look? only this new unity?
[11:12] <damo22> devcalais: ps
[11:12] <aple1> Seryth: Yeah I got the 64bit VBox
[11:12] <skpl> damo22, yes
[11:12] <guest34> padi i feel this is one of the most pressing matters to
the computer, internet, information, searching, that hasn't been
adequately satsified. i am learning programming almost entirely for this
very matter
[11:12] <ActionParsnip> burg: yes, Unity with effects (via compiz) or
[11:13] <Seryth> aple1 Hm, make sure you set up the virtual machine right
[11:13] <aple1> ActionParsnip: I'll take your advice on this one. I don't
see what I'd use 64bit for anyway.
[11:13] <burg> ah, too bad. i don`t like unity at all
[11:13] <devcalais> htop? I'd guess not.
[11:13] <ActionParsnip> burg: if you want the classic look, I suggest you
install XUbuntu and use that
[11:13] <aple1> Seryth: I'm pretty sure I did. Is there anything I should
be particularly mindful of to make it 64bit friendly?
[11:13] <guest34> padi i request we stay in touch to have more eyes on
the matter so to speak
[11:13] <damo22> skpl:you could purge the ppa and revert to unity
[11:13] <ActionParsnip> burg: or some other DE, you can stil use Gnome
based apps in KDE / XFCE / LXDE etc
[11:13] <Seryth> devcalais don't worry. Htop is a resources
watcher/manager, sort of like win task manager (sudo apt-get install

kernels that was on the list but it doesent go any longer than the ubuntu
startup loader then it says on my screen "no signal" and my screen turns

right? what can i do now?
[11:14] <skpl> damo22, i cant get logged in
[11:14] <Seryth> aple1 considering I don't use VB, I've got no clue :P.
Just use 32 bit ;)
[11:14] <devcalais> Seryth: cheers, I'll give it browse. Time to browse
more manuals.
[11:14] <Seryth> :)
[11:14] <guest34> or combine our observations on it
[11:14] <aple1> haha dammit I was going to but you kept telling me it was
a config problem :D
[11:14] <damo22> skpl: do you have network?
[11:14] <jrib> kristoffer_: can you get to a tty? Or recovery mode in
one of the older kernels?
[11:14] <aple1> Wanted to sort that out
[11:14] <aple1> Ok, 32-bit'n this

[11:15] <guest34> i'm currently working on learning rdf. linking in linux
may also have potential. i have only begun to learn linux. i also
envision some software for automatically analyzing pages for easier input
for tags
[11:15] <ActionParsnip> aple1: could use the minimal ISO and install from
the web :)
[11:16] <guest34> computer vision seems quite primitive, and i am not
about to wait until that gets sorted out. is software to more easily tag
what you are looking for?
[11:16] <kristoffer_> jrib, whats tty? i tried recovery mode and it comes
to a screen with alot of text
[11:16] <jrib> kristoffer_: install the nvidia drivers there
[11:16] <kristoffer_> jrib how do i install them?
[11:17] <jrib> kristoffer_: how did you do it before? How did you
uninstall them?
[11:17] <unicum> yet again.. any ideas as to why UBUNTU is not able to
connect to an ad-hoc network? (secured or open, doesn't matter) - ewlist
wlan0 scan does actually list the network, so does network manager.. but
stupuntu won't connect
[11:17] <aple1> ActionParsnip: The 32-bit .iso? S'what I'm doin'!
[11:18] <kristoffer_> jrib i dissabled it in the ubuntu gui
[11:18] <awise12> unicum: stupuntu ?
[11:18] <jrib> kristoffer_: use jockey-text
[11:18] <unicum> yes.. it's throwing to matching words together.. stupid
and ubuntu

[11:19] <skpl> damo22, yeah i have networking, how do i purge the ppa?
[11:20] <awise12> unicum: i' using a wifi at the moment and it works
flawlesly ;)
[11:20] <unicum> i didn't say wireless doesn't work

[11:25] <Pies> other routes deleted without problems
[11:26] <damo22> Pies: are you sure that route still exists?
[11:26] <aeplus> pies, is that a valid route?
[11:26] <Pies> yeah, route returns it
[11:26] <_ruben> route's depreciated in favor of the 'ip' command .. and
one might need to specify the subnetmask as well
[11:26] <ActionParsnip> Pies: could restart the networking service, see
if it helps
[11:27] <damo22> Pies: i have experience with some VPN software that
stuffs up the routing table under linux
[11:28] <Pies> http://paste.ubuntu.com/683443/
[11:28] <skpl> damo22, its not there
[11:29] <Pies> ActionParsnip: /etc/init.d/networking restart ? was trying
that too
[11:29] <ActionParsnip> Pies: sudo service networking restart       is the
new way
[11:30] <damo22> skpl: ls /etc/apt/
[11:30] <Pies> I should add any params?
[11:30] <damo22> skpl: see if theres a separate file with a ppa
[11:30] <szal> "service"? isn't that Fedora?
[11:30] <ActionParsnip> Pies: should be fine
[11:31] <Pies> damo22: don't have any VPN, only wicd is managing my
network, but that shouldn't make me unable to delete route
[11:31] <ActionParsnip> szal: possibly
[11:31] <Pies> ActionParsnip: restart: Unknown instance:
[11:31] <ActionParsnip> Pies: i see
[11:31] <glebihan> szal, "service" is related to upstart, which has been
used by ubuntu for a few releases now
[11:31] <szal> the 'upstart way' would be: sudo stop networking && sudo
start networking

[11:57] <Eliasmaster> and put the backup files to a CD
[11:57] <ActionParsnip> jasef: works fine here ;)
[11:57] <Eliasmaster> but It is just for windows
[11:57] <damo22> Eliasmaster: do you have any important files in linux?
[11:57] <Eliasmaster> No
[11:57] <Eliasmaster> I'd just hate to loose all my setups for programs
[11:58] <jasef> ActionParsnip, Awesome... I can't wait to get home so I
can finish my jigdo download and install it
[11:58] <ActionParsnip> jasef: could just use torrents..
[11:58] <damo22> Eliasmaster: do you have a ubuntu livecd?
[11:58] <Eliasmaster> damo22: no
[11:58] * Sidewinder1 Is paranoid and has back-ups of back-ups.
[11:58] <mohsen> What is the official repository Ubuntu?
[11:59] <ActionParsnip> Eliasmaster: thats why you occasionally backup
said configs, then you won't lose them is catastrophe strikes
[11:59] <sveinse> What happens if an installed file belonging to a
package is deleted? I mean, does the missing file make apt/dpkg complain
upon upgrade or uninstalls?
[11:59] <Eliasmaster> ActionParsnip: I will know that now on the future
[11:59] <ActionParsnip> sveinse: it will be reinstated next time the
package is updated
[12:00] <jasef> ActionParsnip, I could, yeah. But I haven't got any ports
forwarded to my netbook, so jigdo works just fine.
[12:00] <sivik> how does one disable ipv6 for iptables?
[12:00] <ActionParsnip> jasef: torrents work here and the only port
forwarded is the web ui port I use.
[12:00] <plouffe> ActionParsnip, is there a Ubuntu tool to backup all
[12:00] <damo22> Eliasmaster: i have 2 external usb hard drives as
separate backups
[12:00] <ActionParsnip> sivik: add the boot option: ipv6.disable=1
[12:01] <xro> Hi, i configured my nagios server/client... But i would
like to add some check... is there somewhere a list of nagios services
and also the according command for the nrpe_local.cfg file? i'm looking
for a while
[12:01] <mohsen> What is the official repository of Ubuntu for full
[12:01] <ActionParsnip> plouffe: i use cp in a cron job, the configs are
in the hidden folders in $HOME
[12:01] <sivik> ActionParsnip, is that for ipv6 or just the iptables for
[12:01] <ActionParsnip> sivik: all ipv6
[12:01] <ActionParsnip> !download | mohsen
[12:01] <ubottu> mohsen: Ubuntu installation CDs can be downloaded from
http://releases.ubuntu.com - Mirrors can be found at
http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Mirrors - PLEASE use the !torrents to download
!Natty, and help keeping the servers' load low!
[12:01] <plouffe> ActionParsnip, some aren't in home though, e.g. Apache
[12:01] <sivik> So there is to just disable the firewall rules for ipv6
without totally disabling ipv6?
[12:01] <jasef> ActionParsnip, :P I have got none forwarded, so I'll just
live with jigdo for now, I'm getting about 300kB/s anyway when it's
[12:01] <ActionParsnip> mohsen: the source is moot, as long as the file
matches the official hashes, then the source is irrelevant
[12:01] <Sidewinder1> !repository > mohsen
[12:01] <ubottu> mohsen, please see my private message
[12:02] <ActionParsnip> plouffe: then you'd need to add those to your
[12:02] <sivik> ActionParsnip, I just want to disable the iptables
portion of ipv6 and not ipv6 totally
[12:02] <ActionParsnip> sivik: gotcha
[12:03] <xxzz> hmm i tried different stick but it still doesnt work
[12:03] <Eliasmaster> damo22: I will start reinstalling Ubuntu now, as I
don't have any important files there, it seems the easiest way
[12:04] <xxzz> tried YUMI as well
[12:04] <xxzz> whats wrong with this thing
[12:04] <damo22> Eliasmaster: thats the easy way, but there might be a
way to recover
[12:05] <ActionParsnip> xxzz: tried usb-creator
[12:05] <plouffe> ActionParsnip, synaptic has an option to keep or delete
configs. Is it possible to use that to also save/backup configs?
[12:05] <xxzz> nope
[12:05] <ActionParsnip> xxzz: and the 1 2 3 application, if you are using
[12:05] <ActionParsnip> plouffe: synaptic only install packages and
updates, so I doubt it
[12:05] <xxzz> ok
[12:05] <ActionParsnip> !backup | plouffe

[12:05] <fr0sted> hey all does anyone know of any application that i can
use ( kinda like windows explorer looking ) for ssh'ing to my iphone?
[12:06] <damo22> Eliasmaster: but support from damo22 has finished for
the day
[12:06] <ActionParsnip> fr0sted: ssh can do ssh
[12:06] <ActionParsnip> fr0sted: its in a default install
[12:06] <fr0sted> ActionParsnip: ye i know, i mean a gui app
[12:06] <sivik> any way to disable ip6tables?
[12:07] <Pici> fr0sted: nautilus can view scp/sftp 'shares'
[12:07] <fr0sted> Pici: ye i also thought of this with filezilla, but
cant seem to connect to the iphone
[12:07] <plouffe> ActionParsnip, I didn't mean from synaptic, but making
a config backup tool based on the info that synaptic has should be
[12:07] <plouffe> ActionParsnip, thanks for the link
[12:08] <fr0sted> oh nvm, got it, but thanks
[12:08] <xxzz> ActionParsnip, whats 1 2 3 application
[12:08] <ActionParsnip> xxzz: its from pendrivelinux site
[12:09] <xxzz> k
[12:09] <jasef> ActionParsnip, well, I'mma go home and set the download
for 11.10 going again... getting really annoyed with this title bar
colour :(
[12:11] <ActionParsnip> JasseT: which titlebar?

[12:14] <ethanol> does ubuntu do some weird shit that makes the file
system case sensitive and not case sensitive at the same time?
[12:15] <tsimpson> ethanol: first, please watch your language. second, no
it doesn't, and it doesn't really make sense
[12:16] <IdleOne> ethanol: can you give an example of what you mean?
[12:16] <ethanol> well it's weird, cause I am checking for the existence
of files in php (which uses system calls) and I get back true, even when
it does not match casewise
[12:16] <ethanol> it says
/var/www/matthew.admin/INC/Controller/Tools/mysql.php exists, while it is
actually Mysql.php
[12:17] <ethanol> and I'm pretty sure my filesystem is case sensitive,
cause I can create both tmp and TMP in the same folder :<
[12:17] <tsimpson> did you check if PHP checks case sensitive?
[12:17] <ethanol> I asked in ##php, they say it uses information provided
by the system

[12:18] <javier_> Hi. I'm quite new in Ubuntu. I installed Digikam but
looked uggly and unfortunatelly instaled kubuntu-desktop to see if it
looked nice. Now I've got hundred of "k" programs, and I don't know who
to delete all them at once. Someone can help me? How to delete everything
I instaled from kubuntu?
[12:19] <ActionParsnip> javier_: remove the qt libs and everything kde
will fail deps and be marked for uninstallation
[12:19] <jrib> !puregnome | javier_
[12:19] <ubottu> javier_: If you want to remove all !Kubuntu packages or
!Xubuntu packages and have a default !Ubuntu system, follow the
instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PureGnome
[12:19] <javier_> so... sudo apt-get remove pt-libs?
[12:19] <coz_> javier_, or go here
[12:20] <javier_> qt, sorry
[12:20] <coz_> javier_, however the command to remove all of kde is
quite long so get it all if you use that link
[12:20] <javier_> coz_ I found in google that link, but it didn't work
[12:21] <coz_> javier_, did you copy the etire command to remove?
[12:21] <javier_> either, when usind command "sudo aptitude remove
kubuntu-desktop" is not a large list of packages that are removed, but a
few only
[12:21] <javier_> yes, the complete command
[12:22] <damo22> how do i disable screensaver permanently? it doesnt seem
to honour the settings in the gui settings page
[12:22] <coz_> javier_, let me get the entire command and let you see it
hold on
[12:23] <IdleOne> javier_: use the command which lists all the packages
or you can do what ActionParsnip suggested.
[12:23] <coz_> javier_, see if this was the command you used
[12:23] <damo22> ive tried xset dpms force on and a number of other

[12:25] <Abel> hello
[12:25] <javier_> coz_ that's it, I used that one
[12:25] <groundup> I think my read-only filesystem is because I
accidentally used the wrong command when I tried to shut it down. I used
halt instead of shutdown. Then I unplugged it. So, now it is in as stupid
sleep mode.
[12:25] <padi999> ActionParsnip: Is it possible to change Event/Date in
Shotwell? I can't seem to get this working. Some images are stated to be
from 2020 and some from 1945 ^^
[12:25] <wesley_> fala manuu
[12:25] <wesley_> como vai vcs
[12:26] <coz_> javier_, that should have removed all of kde for sure...
did you log off and back on to check?
[12:26] <javier_> what I get is a short message saying about a few
packets that are not instaled so they won't be removed, and finally
doesnt remove any

[12:26] <snufft> hey guys
[12:26] <javier_> i didnt log off, but it didn't look like it did remove
more than just a few Megabites
[12:26] <javier_> I will try that
[12:27] <usr13> groundup: Just curring the power, or a non-clean
shutdown? That shouldn't have done it, unless it is a hard drive failure
in progress
[12:27] <ActionParsnip> padi999: not sure man, I just use it as a
viewer/storer possibly right clicking on an image and changing it.
[12:27] <snufft> i've just grabbed phpmyadmin from the respoitory. is
there a localhost entry added by default? eg, using XAMPP on windows,
localhost/phpmyadmin takes me to phpmyadmin.

just freezes for no apparent reason, leaving me only to reset the damn
thing - what could cause that?
[12:28] <Pici> snufft: I believe you'll need to drop a symlink to
/etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf in /etc/apache2/conf.d/

[12:29] <darthubious> hi guys! can anyone lease recommend me some
webcamera that works with ubuntu and skype with just plug and play???
[12:30] <usr13> groundup: Yep, looks like a hard drive failure.
[12:30] <hiwk> snufft: I think the preset one is ctrl+alt+t

[12:33] <[-supNow-> hello usr13 and actionparsnip: Thanks for your help
yesterday I was able to figure it out. So that you guys are aware in case
anyone else runs into this issue... In order for windows to format and
install on a disk that was previously formatted for ubuntu it has to be
the only drive plugged into the system. Strange as it sounds and as
little sense it makes it's the only thing that worked.
[12:33] <darthubious> usr13, thank you very much. I was looking at some
UVC driver compatible webcams. this will help :)
[12:33] <ActionParsnip> [-supNow-: very strange.
[12:34] <[-supNow-> yes it was I never had that issue in the past...
maybe it's natty?
[12:34] <[-supNow-> natty don't wanna leave the drive... lol
[12:34] <[-supNow-> as soon as I unplugged my other drives it loaded with
no issues with only the windoze disk
[12:34] <[-supNow-> and my ubuntu is happily installed on my other drive!
[12:34] <usr13> [-supNow-: Sorry, I guess we assumed that you knew that
MS Windows only boots (and installs to) the primary drive. Sorry we
overlooked that issue. .. Will try to remember that next time.
[12:34] <javier_> kubuntu wasn¡'t removed
[12:35] <[-supNow-> np you guys were a big help and jumped right on my
issue :0
[12:35] <[-supNow-> I gotta work but I'm gonna start idling in here as I
plan to be primarily ubuntu and have gotten about 10 people on it
already! :)
[12:36] <jinu> how to configure TPM on ubuntu 10.04?
[12:37] <usr13> [-supNow-: We try, but if we don't have specific
information about the hardware and other details, we may go of the track
in advising people. I know I do from time to time. I get the wrong idea
and start chasing the wrong issue.
[12:37] <groundup> Sorry, now I am trying to get SSH to work again
[12:37] <groundup> So I can at least work on this from my desk instead of

[12:44] <usr13> slipttees: What exactly are you trying to do?
[12:45] <slipttees> usr13, make usb bootable e install ubuntu on ntebook

[12:46] <ActionParsnip> slipttees: wait, is it an iPod?
[12:46] <slipttees> ActionParsnip, i can use gparted?
[12:46] <usr13> An inode is a data structure on a traditional Unix-style
file system such as UFS. An inode stores all the information about a
regular file, directory, or other file system object, except its data and
name. When you format a partition, the process assigns just so many
inodes. If you end up with lots and lots of very small files, it's
possible to run out of inodes and it will act as if the drive is full,
but it is really just out of inodes.

[13:13] <usr13> javier_: leave off the URL Just: sudo apt-get --purge
[13:14] <usr13> javier_: Actually just: sudo apt-get --purge remove

=== dougsko_ is now known as dougsko
[13:15] <usr13> javier_: But I think he wanted you to do sudo apt-get --
purge remove before and after     sudo apt-get --purge remove kdelibs-bin
#But not sure it is neecessary to do it before.
[13:15] <photon> usr13: you copied the autoremove misspelling.
[13:15] <photon> javier_: use autoremove instead of atoremove
[13:16] <javier_> usr13: yes, I also saw that but only after doing sudo
apt-get ... kdelibs-bin. But i't doing it, so I think it's fine like this
[13:16] <javier_> photon: thanks, i noticed also :)
[13:16] <usr13> photon: Thanks for the correction
[13:16] <photon> np
[13:17] <usr13> Looking back at it. He may have been wanting you to --
purge all that is in http://paste.ubuntu.com/683518/

[13:23] <javier_> usr13: yes, i think you were right. Thanks a lot for
working the command for me
[13:23] <usr13> javier_: Anyway, you got it.
[13:24] <usr13> in the end do:   sudo apt-get --reinstall install ubuntu-
[13:24] <usr13> Once you've removed all the KDE stuff. Reason being....
kde and gnome don't always play well together
[13:26] <Aurus> Considering KDE and Gnome use entirely separate runtimes
I can't imagine how they would interfere with each other at all...
[13:28] <aleks_> silversurfer
[13:29] <aleks_> hey ppl
[13:30] <cillo564> is there application that records the sound coming
from soundcard?
[13:32] <usr13> Aurus: Well, I don't know what it is, but I've seen it.
I've had a pure KDE system and instlled gnome and for a while everything
was fine. After a bit things seemed to have gotten mucked up and
couldn't find any logical reason because the only change was adding gnome
and lots of gnome apps.
[13:32] <javier_> It's done. I removed everything I installed from
kubuntu, except for one thing. When starting and stopping the laptop, I
get kubuntu11.04 blue screen, with those 5 lights that indicate that it's
charging. Algo in closing, kubuntu blue screen. Any idea how to get back
purple ubuntu one?
[13:33] <usr13> Aurus: Maybe I drew an erroneous assumption

[13:33] <TAndriamirado> cillo564: if you use pulse-audio you can easily
do that

[13:34] <cillo564> TAndriamirado, how it can be done?
[13:34] <Kartagis> usr13: /etc/environment?
[13:35] <usr13> $PATH with no arguments will tell you what you have now.
[13:36] <TAndriamirado> cillo564: ..or use jackd2 sound daemon: it let
you simply 'connect' apps (and hardwares) so the output of a software (or
soundcard) could be routed to the entry port of any sound recorder app

to put on 700mb cds but i have no clue on how to do that
[13:36] <usr13> PATH=$PATH:/home/user/bin    will add /home/user/bin to

wasn't thinking and prefecade it with a / I want to delete the link now.
if I rm /linkname will that delete the files that it links to or will it
delete just the link?
[13:37] <usr13> .. for it to take effect.
[13:37] <TAndriamirado> chriswr: use 'isomaster'

[13:39] <chriswr> TAndriamirado, alright. i was wondering how would i
run the iso if its split up on multiple cds?

[13:43] <Roger_the_bum> Has ubuntu, since 10.10, enabled power management
settings for wireless cards? For mine, I think it's saving power to

cannot reliably connect from 30 or so feet away in a not-too-dense
location. On battery, there are no problems.

because owner of the server wants to have graphic interface in case he
needed to fix something. How can I change booting so text mode would be
default and xfce was only turned on with "Xorg" commandd?
[13:45] <TAndriamirado> chriswr: this typically depends of the software
that is on the CDs (not sure I understood Ur 2nd question..)
[13:46] <lucenut> Hey guys. I want to make my windows 7 netbook dual boot
with the latest ubuntu. I am downloading the 11.04 and have a usb drive.
[13:46] <lucenut> Any tips/tricks/suggestions?
[13:46] <xfce_murderer> hello, I installed ubuntu server but added xfce
because owner of the server wants to have graphic interface in case he
needed to fix something. How can I change booting so text mode would be
default and xfce was only turned on with "Xorg" commandd?
[13:47] <xfce_murderer> sorry, hand slipped
[13:47] <Stanley00> lucenut: just looking at the install guide on
wiki.ubuntu.com :D
[13:47] <xfce_murderer> lucenut: in my case it configured grub
[13:47] <SIFTU> xfce_murderer: just dont start a display manager
[13:48] <chriswr> TAndriamirado, its a copy of a game iso , and to
rephrase that question... once i get the split iso files on the cds would
i just copy and paste the files on the cds onto my other computer? if so
how would i mount the iso since theres so many of them?
[13:48] <xfce_murderer> SIFTU: it turns on on boot, how do I disable it?
[13:48] <SIFTU> xfce_murderer: and you are probably thinking of using
[13:48] <xfce_murderer> SIFTU: thanks, I'll remember
[13:48] <SIFTU> xfce_murderer: update-rc.d
[13:49] <tdn> I have some m4a audio files that are apple lossless codec,
I think. How do I play those? Audacious cannot handle play them. I guess
I need to install some lib or codec?
[13:50] <TAndriamirado> chriswr: so it fully depends of the game. Most of
them are protected.
[13:50] <mongy> chriswr, split -d -b 700M file.iso splitfile
[13:50] <xfce_murderer> SIFTU: update-rc.d "???"
[13:51] <Andy80> jussi01: hi :)
[13:51] <chriswr> TAndriamirado, alright ill just try and see
[13:51] <lucenut> I searched bootable usb on the wiki and returned
nothing. Just "usb" returns a bunch of stuff that doesn't seem to be
about a bootable drive.
[13:51] <mongy> chriswr, cat splitfile* > file.iso
[13:51] <Stanley00> xfce_murderer: I think you should digging more in man
upstart and init, it's the first proc start when system startup...
[13:52] <TAndriamirado> chriswr: sorry ;-)) (..and you could try mongy's
tip ;-)
[13:52] <xfce_murderer> tdn: do you have restricted areas cidecs
[13:52] <mongy> chriswr, md5sum the before and after just to verify.
works for me fine tho
[13:53] <chriswr> mongy, alright , how would i merge the files back
together once i got them on my other computer?
[13:53] <mongy> chriswr, see cat
[13:53] <chriswr> mongy, my other computer is windows :/
[13:53] <xfce_murderer> tdn: do you have restricted areas cidecs
[13:54] <xfce_murderer> lucenut: it doesn't matter if it's from CD or USB
[13:54] <mongy> chriswr, split -b 700M file.iso splitfile <then> cat
splitfile* > file.iso
[13:54] <javier_> hi: how to install digikam in gnome? do I need all kde
stall, like dolphin? can't I make it use nautilus?
[13:56] <chriswr> mongy, so the "cat splitfile* > file.iso" works on
[13:56] <MonkeyDust> chriswr: mount the Windoze partition on Ubuntu and
then merge the files
[13:56] <mongy> chriswr, oh, I assumed linux
[13:56] <codemagician> im trying to run a backup python script but it
bails out because there is a file called .gvfs in my home directory which
appears to have user = ? group = ?
[13:57] <Lasers> codemagician: Exclude .gvffs
[13:57] <Lasers> .gvfs
[13:57] <Lasers> and trash while you're at it.
[13:57] <Lasers> !trash
[13:57] <ubottu> Your GUI file manager's Trash folder is located at
~/.local/share/Trash/ for files moved to trash from your hard disk and
.../.Trash-userid/ on external devices for files moved to trash from the
[13:57] <ActionParsnip> codemagician: its a special folder, take it out
of the scope
[13:57] <codemagician> ActionParsnip, who created it?
[13:58] <Lasers> Nautilus's automagically mount stuffs.
[13:58] <MonkeyDust> chriswr: or merge the files, then mount the Windoze
partition and copy the merged files to that partition
[13:58] <ActionParsnip> codemagician: its where gvfs mounts shares and
[13:58] <codemagician> ActionParsnip, it caused my backups to fail
[13:58] <codemagician> ActionParsnip, because it has no user or group
associated with it
[13:59] <lighta> why does ubuntu depot still have galileo eclipse instead
a newer one like indigo or even helios ?
[13:59] <ActionParsnip> codemagician: remove the folder from the scope
and you'll be fine
[13:59] <codemagician> ActionParsnip, just rm .gvfs
[13:59] <chriswr> MonkeyDust, the problem im having is that when i try to
mount the iso file on ubuntu it says that theres no files in it and also
its not in iso 9660 , so i used "iat" and it says "image is broken
this image is not CD image"
[13:59] <mongy> chriswr, could compress it in nautilus 'compress' and use
7z or something to make volumes, then use 7zip in windows to unpack
[13:59] <MonkeyDust> lighta: 'why' is a philosophical question, this is a
technical channel
[13:59] <ActionParsnip> codemagician: no or you will make issues
[13:59] <lucenut> I still can't find where to start on making a bootable
usb stick with 11.04
[13:59] <lucenut> Google brings up things for 8
[13:59] <ActionParsnip> lucenut: it's the same method
[14:00] <codemagician> ActionParsnip, about 10 mins ago ls -l showed
"d?????????   ? ?    ?          ?                ? .gvfs"
[14:00] <lighta> I meant technically is there a logical reason like
stability or you like to make user search more ?...
[14:00] <codemagician> ActionParsnip, now it is owned by me in devteam
[14:00] <sls> join/#als
[14:00] <ActionParsnip> codemagician: its just a container that gvfs uses
to mount stuff, theres no need to back it up and its not technically a
folder, just make your script ignore the folder
[14:00] <codemagician> ActionParsnip, actually ignore that. its still ? ?
[14:01] <usr13> lucenut: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download
[14:01] <sls> the idiot is here
[14:01] <Pici> lighta: have you checked launchpad for bug reports against
that package? Perhaps there is a legitimate reason listed there. I
suspect it is because packaging it is a real pain.
[14:01] <tonysan> Could somebody provide a simple script: do some job
when swap usage is above some threshold?
[14:01] <Lasers> codemagician: Yes. You said you have a backup script.
Fix it to exclude few folders.
[14:01] <chriswr> mongy, that sounds like a good idea , if i compress it
with natilius is there somthing i can use on this linux computer to split
the compressed file into multiple volumes? or is 7zip for linux also?
[14:02] <tdn> xfce_murderer, yes I do.
[14:02] <ActionParsnip> tonysan: you will be using 'free -m' and grepping
and awking til you get the value you want, then performing some logic on
the value
[14:02] <tdn> xfce_murderer, I have those isntalled.
[14:02] <Pici> tonysan: Thats not really within the scope of this
channel. Someone in #bash might be able to help you write that, or you'd
more likely be looking for a framework that allows you to create jobs
based on system properties.
[14:02] <tdn> xfce_murderer, which one should make it work?
=== himcesjf1 is now known as himcesjf
[14:02] <tonysan> ActionParsnip: actually it is the grepping and awking
that hinders me ...
[14:02] <tdn> xfce_murderer, here is dpkg -l |grep codec:
[14:03] <mongy> chriswr, 7zip is available for most if not all
[14:03] <tonysan> ok, I'll switch to another channel, thanks

thought of it before myself , thanks

[14:05] <engrxyz> i hae a root partition and an lvm partition. i
installed mysql and transfer the datadir from /var/lib/mysql to the lvm
partition. when i do a mysql restore, i found out that the / root
partition as well as the lvm partition is growing together. any tips?
[14:05] <Kartagis> how do I fix Class PDO not found?
[14:05] <ActionParsnip> tonysan: $3 prints the 3rd value, you can get
free with: $4 and total is $2
[14:06] <mongy> chriswr, for a command it would be 7z a -v700m -mx=0
file.7z file.iso   (if you want no compression, quicker)
[14:06] <ActionParsnip> tonysan: you can then use bash to perform logic
on those values (calculate percentage etc)
[14:06] <tsaknorris> hmm... how i can add launchers to unity?

[14:08] <Kartagis> somsip: they told me to ask here
[14:08] <RamtinA> usr13: i can't empty my trash :(
[14:08] <mongy> chriswr, the compression app that is, file-roller
[14:08] <ActionParsnip> tsaknorris: I use chromium, it sits on the bar
just fine
[14:08] <Lasers> chriswr: Use Gnome File-Roller. It's one GUI that will
take care of all archives.
[14:08] <tsaknorris> RamtinA, i have it already...i just upgraded to this

[14:09] <chriswr> mongy, umm how do i use nautilus exactly? kinda noobish
at this , do i need to install it also or does it come preinstalled on
ubuntu 11.04

deleting Fani.lnk.

to know some basic stuff about unity...so forget...i will read it by my

[14:10] <usr13> RamtinA: Where is Fani.lnk ?
[14:10] <mongy> chriswr, the file manager. if you have 7zip installed,
select your file.iso and right click compress, 7z will be an optoin
[14:10] <ActionParsnip> do ISO files compress well?
[14:10] <chriswr> mongy, oh alright cool
[14:10] <mongy> ActionParsnip, have done , certain ones
[14:10] <ActionParsnip> I doubt it will due to squashfs being used to
store the data on the ubuntu ISO
[14:11] <somsip> Kartagis: wait - just saw this Update: it looks like
this is a result of PDO moving into the PHP code; don't try to install
PDO using PECL, just skip to the database-specific install (e.g.

remember that there is a prog call help on your ubuntu ;)

I tried lubuntu 10.10, lubuntu 11.04, mint linux, puppy linux and
BrunoPup and always had a problem while instaling. Any suggestions?
[14:32] <xxzz> ActionParsnip, I managed parted magic usb to boot netbook,
now I see 2 partitions but cant fingure out partition type. During power
on without usb i see ASUS assistance and stuff so I guess they are using
1 partition or 2 partions. My plan is to install windows, freebsd and
Ubuntu on 250 gig but I will need 2 primary partitions for windows &
FreeBSD and 1 logical for Ubuntu. How do I find...
[14:32] <xxzz> ...out what two primary partitions are ( need to know
type). fdisk says hidden partitions and nothing more

[14:52] <lucenut> I am installing 11.04 on my HP mini alongside windows
[14:52] <usr13> And show us...
[14:52] <lucenut> I am at the screen called "Allocate drive space" and
[14:52] <lucenut> It shows 4 things under "devices" like /dev/sda...
[14:53] <edbian> lucenut: each one is a partition
[14:53] <edbian> lucenut: /dev/sda is one of your hdds
[14:53] <RamtinA> usr13: that's just in the trash
[14:53] <lucenut> Device for boot loader installation has /dev/sda ATA
Toshiba MK2556GS (250.1 GB) selected.
[14:53] <usr13> lucenut: and one or more of those you will want to
resize, (make smaller), in order to get enough free space to install
[14:54] <lucenut> I didn't know what to do so I just hit "Install Now"
but it says "No root file system is defined"
[14:54] <usr13> RamtinA: Did you find it yet?
[14:54] <usr13> RamtinA: Did you find the path to the file?
[14:54] <lucenut> OK, so if I choose "Edit" on the 250G partition...
[14:55] <lucenut> It says "Use as"?
[14:55] <mongy> ActionParsnip, got a good theme for lubuntu? I cant seem
to find a decent one...I prefer dark styles
[14:55] <xxzz> ActionParsnip, gparted doesnt detect filesystem
[14:55] <lucenut> Should I choose Fat32 file system?
[14:55] <lucenut> You can resize this later also right?
[14:56] <usr13> lucenut: You have to make room for the new Linux install.
If you want to delete all that is there, tell it to use entire disk. If
you want to do Dual Boot, resize the MS Windows partition so a smaller
size, maybe half, (depending on how much data you have in it).
[14:56] <edbian> lucenut: you should make everything for ubuntu ext4 ( or
swap )
[14:56] <edbian> lucenut: use as is something like / or swap or /home
[14:56] <edbian> lucenut: You will probably need to resize yes, unless
you have unallocated space on the drive already
[14:57] <lucenut> How do you resize?
[14:57] <lucenut> I selected swap and clicked OK.
[14:57] <usr13> lucenut: Look at how much free space you have and decide
how to allocte for Linux. Or tell us how much free space you come up with
and we will help you decide. Or, you can let the installer do the
automatic allocation.
[14:58] <lucenut> There is ~ 198G free of 250 according to windows.
[14:58] <noobie3> when trying to intsall lubuntu 11.4 i get this error
[14:58] <noobie3> any help? :(
[14:58] <lucenut> I don't understand this UI though.
[14:58] <usr13> lucenut: That is plenty, use the 198G of free space.
[14:58] <edbian> lucenut: Free space in windows means NTFS partition
space that is not filled with files / folder. Free in this installer
means this part of the drive is not a partition at all.
[14:58] <lucenut> OK, I wasn't asked anything about size/space.
[14:58] <edbian> lucenut: The fact that windows reports 198Gb free means
that you can shrink the windows ntfs partition.
[14:58] <usr13> lucenut: And let ubuntu automatically decide and re-
partition for itself.
[14:59] <lucenut> I chose "swap" and hit OK.
[14:59] <edbian> usr13: He can learn if he wants to
[14:59] <edbian> lucenut: also you probably have more than 1 'windows'
partition windows 7 usually has like 4
[14:59] <lucenut> Now in here it shows the 250G partition as Type=swap.
[14:59] <usr13> lucenut: Look at the available options and think about
[14:59] <edbian> lucenut: 1 repair partition, 1 boot partition, and one
actual windows data partition is very common
[15:00] <edbian> lucenut: How much ram do you have?
[15:00] <usr13> lucenut: You only need about 3 or 4G for swap
[15:00] <chmielsen> Hey, I have a problem. When I'm building program from
a source it is later asking me for a lot of files in directories like
/etc /var etc. How can I install it, so it would be like from synaptics?
[15:00] <RamtinA> usr13: my computer restarted
[15:00] <lucenut> Right, there is a ntfs 35MB and a fat16 33MB
[15:00] <edbian> lucenut: (that's almost definitely waaaay to much swap
[15:00] <slipttees> como extract bios dump on ubuntu?
[15:00] <lucenut> I didn't mention them because I didn't think they were
[15:01] <edbian> lucenut:    fat16 33Mb? <- I have no idea what this is.
It's pretty uselessly small
[15:01] <usr13> lucenut: You are correct, those are not important, you
can just leave them as is.
[15:01] <lucenut> OK, I highlighted the 250G and clicked "Revert" and now
instead of swap it says it's ntfs.
[15:01] <edbian> lucenut: Be careful here. It is rather easy to erase
your entire windows OS at this stage of the installer.
[15:01] <lucenut> That is why I am asking questions.
[15:01] <usr13> lucenut: How much RAM does this PC have?
[15:02] <noobie3> http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/822/12314124.jpg/

[15:02] <edbian> lucenut: just a warning :)
[15:02] <lucenut> 1G, and that is the max for it.
[15:02] <edbian> noobie3: It's a kernel panic
[15:02] <edbian> lucenut: Then your swap should be 1Gb, what's the max
for what?
[15:02] <chmielsen> Hey, I have a problem. When I'm building program from
a source it is later asking me for a lot of files in directories like
/etc /var etc. How can I install it, so it would be like from synaptics?
[15:02] <noobie3> i could read that by myself :) anything else
[15:02] <usr13> lucenut: Then 1 or 2G of swap is fine.
[15:02] <lucenut> So here I am again at the Allocate drive space screen.
What do I do?
[15:02] <RamtinA> my ram is 512MB , and 58%of that is in use .and just my
pidgin is run :D . is it fine?
[15:03] <lucenut> Where do I "get" that swap space?
[15:03] <edbian> noobie3: They're usually very hard to figure out.
Typically they're caused by bad hardware (unless you're using the nightly
build kernel)
[15:03] <sproaty> hi since using ubuntu 11.04, Nautilus no longer
autocompletes in the location bar when SSH'd into a server; any ideas?

[15:03] <ActionParsnip> RamtinA: probably find most is use by disk
[15:03] <tab1293> mpd is not used to stream music correct?
[15:03] <ActionParsnip> RamtinA: http://www.linuxatemyram.com/
[15:03] <lucenut> So do I take some space from the 250G ntfs?
[15:03] <edbian> lucenut: You do that by shrinking partitions until you
have some unallocated space, then you right click the unallocated space
and create a new (swap) partition that is 1Gb big (1024Mb)

[15:04] <Chousuke> RamtinA: as long as you have free RAM left you don't
need to pay attention to it
[15:04] <lucenut> OK, how do I "shrink" a partition?
[15:04] <edbian> lucenut: You have to take space from some partition
probably yes
[15:04] <TehAndrewRyan> ActionParsnip: yes it has been written before,
however if i F11 the window i don't get that problem

won't be able to

run too many apps at the same time

[15:05] <edbian> lucenut: You are confusing me. Your hdd is 250Gb total
[15:05] <lucenut> Yes
[15:05] <edbian> lucenut: You should have at least 1 partition that is =
or < 250Gb

[15:06] <lucenut> Yes, /dev/sda2 ntfs 2498843
[15:06] <nhocht> hi
[15:06] <lucenut> I can highlight it and click "Change".
[15:06] <usr13> lucenut: So use about half of that one.
[15:07] <lucenut> I don't know how to "use" it. :-(
[15:07] <edbian> lucenut: so you want to be editing these partitions (not
the entire 250Gb drive) the partitions each are not 250Gb so don't say
things like 'I'm selecting 250Gb and resizing' cause that's not true
[15:07] <nhocht> how to check infomation about USB3G on ubuntu?

what to do with it. what i should do to use it as production for digital
image editing?
[15:08] <gabyy> :D
[15:08] <edbian> usr13: In the installer it's called edit / change
[15:08] <lucenut> I thought 250 was a good round for that.
[15:08] <Stanley00> gabyy: you can use gimp and/or inkscape to edit
digital picture
[15:08] <lucenut> There is nothing on this Allocate Drive Space screen
saying "resize" anywhere.
[15:08] <edbian> lucenut: it's close but it is confusing because 250Gb
would imply you're editing the entire drive (which you're not). If you
did you would be erasing windows completely.

[15:09] <ubottu> gimp is an advanced image manipulation application for
Ubuntu. See http://www.gimp.org for tutorials and more information.
[15:09] <Lasers> gabyy: That's linux alternative of photoshop, gimp.
[15:09] <usr13> Oh ok. lucenut As edbian points out, the option is edit /
change. You want to resize the parttion, (shrink it to a smaller size).
[15:09] <Stanley00> gabyy: you can install photoshop via wine or
playonlinux, but I dont recommend that
[15:10] <EskimoBob> hi can someone please tell me what pkg. installs
/boot/System.map /boot/abi and /boot/vmcoreinfo files
[15:10] <gabyy> okay, think i'm gonna give it a try. is it in the apt?
[15:10] <lucenut> usr13. I highlight the 249843 partition and click
"Change" and get an "Edit a partition" dialog. Nothing about resizing
[15:10] <Stanley00> gabyy: yes, try finding it on Ubuntu software center
[15:10] <gabyy> thanks all.
[15:10] <gabyy> ^_^
[15:11] <usr13> lucenut: If you fish around there, you should find out
how to resize (shrink) the largest partion in order to create enough free
space for the Linux install.
[15:11] <RamtinA> gabyy: there isn't photoshop.but you can use gimp
[15:12] <usr13> lucenut: Have you already allocated some space for swap ?
[15:12] <lucenut> No!
[15:12] <lucenut> I set the 249843 to swap and was told that was wrong.
[15:12] <lucenut> So I reverted it back.
[15:12] <Kingsy> guys, I have got a LONG flight coming up in a couple of
hours.. anyone recommend any addictive games I can play on my laptop that

[15:13] <EskimoBob> anyone? I have this fracked up install here and
obviously some files are missing from the boot. I like to fix this
[15:13] <EskimoBob> Kingsy: read a book
[15:13] <Kingsy> EskimoBob: reading a book is hardly a game :P
[15:13] <usr13> lucenut: Ok, well as I said, if you fish around there on
that screen, you should find out how to set aside some free space for the
linux install. Shrinking the largest partition is basically what you are
going to do.
[15:13] <EskimoBob> Kingsy: read a good book and it better than a game
[15:13] <Kingsy> ....
[15:14] <gabyy> RamtinA: okkie dookie. let me familiarize myself with
gimp. thanks

you're looking for that, then you're in the right channel.
[15:15] <EskimoBob> so where can I get the answer to my question? what
*buntu pkg. installs /boot/System.map /boot/abi and /boot/vmcoreinfo

[15:16] <pawz> hai. i has a problem. i'm trying to install ubuntu on a
netbook with a 1024x600 screen resolution and none of the install dialogs
fit on the screen so i can't select OK or BACK etc... i wanted to try the
ubuntu netbook remix, but its been replaced now with regular ubuntu...
but how am i supposed to install it if i can't even fit the dialog boxes
on screen ?
[15:16] <RamtinA> gabyy: ok . myself do graphic and work with gimp a
little ;)

[15:17] <sipior> EskimoBob: in general, try "dpkg -S <filename>". the
files you're asking about are part of the kernel package, of course.

[15:18] <dbugger> Hey guys. ive just installed Ubuntu Natty and I was
wondering... how could I add a background to the grub (i dont know if
what I have installed is grub, grub2 or whatever :S)
[15:19] <gabyy> pawz: hold alt + drag the installation windows up with
your mouse or touchpad
[15:19] <gabyy> pawz: you should see the buttons
[15:19] <gabyy> ^_^
[15:19] <Stanley00> dbugger: just copy it to /boot/grub and run update-
[15:20] <gabyy> RamtinA : what else you use other than gimp?
[15:20] <dbugger> Stanley00, I think I already did that, and didnt work,
but Ill give it another run

[15:24] <dbugger> well, guys, that didnt work :( I still the purple

[15:25] <ActionParsnip> Kingsy: there is snes9x on playdeb
[15:26] <Stanley00> dbugger: what's the size of your image?
[15:26] <Polah> Afternoon
[15:26] <dbugger> 640x480
[15:26] <mongy> Kingsy, its not for 64bit. if you want you can force
install the 32bit, you need ia32-libs installed. Ive done it, works ...

not working...
[15:30] <neo_> any one can help?
[15:30] <dbugger> Stanley00, ok thanks
[15:31] <dbugger> is that size allright for a grub bg?
[15:31] <ActionParsnip> neo_: do torrents not 'just work' decent routers
support upnp
[15:31] <neo_> any one
[15:32] <Stanley00> dbugger: I dont know either, it's just say that the
image size must match the grub sreen size
[15:32] <Polah> neo_: You don't need to port forward on your system. You
just need to open that port in your firewall. Port forwarding needs to be
done on routers to forward incoming data on a port to an address behind
the router.
[15:32] <neo_> how?
[15:33] <ActionParsnip> neo_: have you ever set any rules on your PCs
local firewall?
[15:33] <dob__> hello
[15:33] <neo_> polah, thats what i wan ti do
[15:33] <dob__> cann i make a dist-upgrade von debian 5.0 (lenny) to
[15:33] <Polah> neo_: Yes, you need access to the router for that.
[15:34] <Stanley00> dbugger: and one thing more, did the update-grub
recognize the image? did it say something like "Found background image:
files.jpg" ?
[15:34] <Polah> dob__: No. You can't just move across different
distributions of Ubuntu.

[15:42] <Dr_Willis> RamtinA: optmize in what way? theres various
tweaks.. but not really doing a lot if any optmizations. :)
[15:42] <ActionParsnip> RamtinA: running a local dns and configuring
network manager to use it, like dnsmasq can make the web faster
[15:42] <usr13> livingdaylight: In skype's configuration menus there is
an option to let skype contol audio levels, disable it.
[15:42] <RamtinA> ActionParsnip: my computer is very slow
[15:42] <livingdaylight> usr13, do you know where exactly, I dug around
and couldn't find anything relevant
[15:43] <ActionParsnip> RamtinA: use LXDE instead of gnome

[15:44] <usr13> livingdaylight: options -> sound devices

too low, you won't hear the incoming call if you are in another room of

[15:45] <usr13> livingdaylight: Is it really that much louder?
[15:45] <livingdaylight> usr13, ok, and disable "Allow Skype to
automatically adjust my mixer levels" ? Will that switch off all sound
including phone ringing or just the chat notification sounds on multiple
windows which is driving me nuts

would dig into the bargin bin sites and trash cans :) and find moar ram..
lxde/lubuntu would be the way to go with that low of ram.

your microphone slider up if you're quiet, and down if it's loud.

output of lsb_release -a )
[15:56] <usr13> roue: lsb_release -sc

help, too

with those, you may be able to find drivers for it (if you don't have
them already)?
[15:59] <rumpe1> arooni-mobile__, then it's the card. Maybe try different
usb-ports and watch "tail -f syslog"
[16:00] <arooni-mobile__> rumpe1, its built in i cant move it to
different usb ports
[16:00] <rumpe1> arooni-mobile__, erm... i meant "tail -f
[16:00] <rumpe1> arooni-mobile__, do you have another reader somewhere?
... or put /var/log/syslog in a pastebin so i can have a look
[16:01] <Dr_Willis> ive seen built in card readers that are not USB.
[16:01] <arooni-mobile__> rumpe1, tailing syslog shows nothing when the
card is plugged in
[16:01] <arooni-mobile__> i have suspicions it might be the micro sd =>
sd card adapter
[16:01] <arooni-mobile__> as i know other sd cards have worked with this
[16:01] <arooni-mobile__> without drivers etc
[16:01] <Polah> arooni-mobile__, have you tried with another card?
[16:02] <Dr_Willis> arooni-mobile__: you may want to check the forums
for that exact make laptop. Often theres some kernel options needed for
some special cases.
[16:02] <arooni-mobile__> Polah,
[16:02] <Dr_Willis> arooni-mobile__: ive also seen some cases where the
card Must be inserted at boot time. or else the system cant see/access
it.. (which is annoying, but thats how my netbook is)

slot perhaps? in system specs or printed on teh pc somewhere.

places, like from synaptics?

[16:07] <Dr_Willis> chmielsen: when you do the 'sudo make install' it
normally copies the stuff where needed... theres also ways to build a
.deb from your compiled stuff. which is a neater way of doing things.
[16:08] <Dr_Willis> arooni-mobile__: could be. I got a little mini-usb
adaptor i always use for my micro sd cards these days. i rarely use a
microsd-sd adaptor
[16:08] <arooni-mobile__> Dr_Willis, what do you mean mini-usb adaptor
[16:09] <RA_drc> hello, i cant see the top toolbar in any of my ubuntu

the other end.

[16:10] <RA_drc> usr13: that's not the case, i've moved my mouse up
there, and nothing shows up
[16:10] <arooni-mobile__> Dr_Willis, what would you recommend?
[16:10] <Dr_Willis> m4xx: the noauto option will stop it from auto
[16:10] <Dr_Willis> m4xx: and the user option would let the user mount
it when they wanted to.
[16:11] <roue> usr13 that seems to have eucalyptus-cc (2.0+bzr1241-
0ubuntu4.2) but I'm looking for eucalyptus-cc (2.0+bzr1241-0ubuntu4.1)
(not the trailing 1 instead of 2)
[16:11] <Dr_Willis> arooni-mobile__: I always use that usb adaptor for
mine. it always works. :)

have a look.
[16:11] <RA_drc> Dr_Willis: i'm not talking about the global menu, i'm
taking about the menu bar for individual applications - i.e., the *top*
toolbar like i mentioned earlier. whether i'm using the calculator,
terminal, or document viewer, there is no top menubar available
[16:11] <Dr_Willis> RA_drc: if the global menu thing some how crashed..
they may not be showing.

Unity is shown on the top panel instead

there's a bar on the left hand side of the screen, and that's working
[16:13] <Dr_Willis> RA_drc: the left side thing is the panel. In unity
all the 'menus' are not in th eprograms windows any more. but in the top

[16:14] <Dr_Willis> sounds like your settings maybe all messed up
[16:14] <RA_drc> Dr_Willis: on top of the individual window, not the top
of the screen

the upper panel. thats the point of the global menu.
[16:16] <Dr_Willis> heres some videos of it.. and how to disable it.
[16:17] <Dr_Willis> Hmm. lots of videos there.. :)
[16:17] <Polah> RA_drc: You have the contents of the windows but no bar
on top with an exit button or suchlike, or a border? Sounds like your
window manager isn't functioning.

found the network traffic from the wifi light flashing all the time, with
no net apps running an no apparent net process running...
[16:17] <RA_drc> Dr_Willis: the global menu is working fine, it's just
that there are no bars on top of the individual windows like there
normally would be
[16:17] <RA_drc> Polah: that's exactly my problem
[16:17] <Dr_Willis> RA_drc: you mean the window title bar then....
[16:18] <Dr_Willis> RA_drc: run 'compiz --replace' if its the
title/decorations that are mising. :) or 'metacity --replace'
[16:18] <Dr_Willis> compiz must have crashed.

[16:20] <cheako> Hello, ne1 using mcxv with r600 DRI drivers?
[16:20] <cheako> mesa?
[16:20] <tmus> valthyx, is that what you meant?
[16:21] <valthyx> tmus, no, i means something like, a library where i
could perform numerous ARP operations like gratuitos arp, arp lookup and
so on
[16:21] <RA_drc> Dr_Willis: no, i meant exactly what i said, not what you
thought i meant. always and exactly.
[16:21] <alexd285> hello, I have the gst-keyboard-xkb id:805747 bug and I
cannot fix it, any ideas?
[16:21] <cheako> valthyx: pcap
[16:21] <RA_drc> Dr_Willis: but what you suggested worked, so thanks
[16:22] <valthyx> cheako, is it similar to winpcap?
[16:22] <cheako> should let you build and use custom packates, yeah.
[16:22] <tmus> valthyx, that *might* be the vdso library, but I'm not
really sure...
[16:22] <RobinJ> Great... I think Ubuntu's killing my battery
[16:23] <gentoo-intel> RobinJ, did you just come from windows?
[16:23] <Dr_Willis> RA_drc: the 'menubar' is not the 'title bar'
[16:23] <RobinJ> the battery's capacity is only 36% left, 2 days ago it
was stil 60%
[16:23] <tmus> valthyx, as far as i know, vdso provides some hooks into
the kernel - which might be able to help here...
[16:23] <RobinJ> gentoo-intel: no windblows here
[16:23] <poridge> how can i set it up so users don't have access to list
files in other peoples home folders?
[16:23] <gentoo-intel> RobinJ, i was only going to say that newer kernels
seem to use much more battery
[16:23] <valthyx> i am not sure if winpcap could really craft custom
packets, as far as i know, they are used for sniffing
[16:23] <RobinJ> gentoo-intel: and i mean the total energy it holds when
fully charged, not just how much it's charged
[16:24] <Dr_Willis> bbl off to the dr office.
[16:24] <Polah> RobinJ: 2.6.38 kernel has known power issues, not sure if
they've been patched or anything.
[16:24] <valthyx> tmus, ok, will check that out
[16:24] <do0> hi
[16:24] <gentoo-intel> Polah, nope kernels > 3 are even worse
[16:24] <RobinJ> Polah: not talking here about a battery wich drains
quickly on ubuntu, i mean the actual hardware
[16:25] <alexd285> RobinJ power regression is not fixed in 3.1 kernel
also. you have to w8 more
[16:25] <do0> There is a tool which compile python script like python2exe
[16:25] <RobinJ> its maximum capacity
[16:25] <RobinJ> alex__c2022: is "power regression" supposed to KILL MY

[16:25] <cheako> valthyx: forge.happypacket.com
[16:25] <RobinJ> it takes 2 hours to charge and only 20 to discharge
[16:26] <do0> python2exe for windows which is for Linux(Ubuntu) please?
[16:26] <RobinJ> in the beginning it was the other way around
[16:26] <and7ey> hi all, where should I ask questions about cross
compilation on ubuntu?
[16:26] <shomon> do0, "python"?
[16:26] <valthyx> cheako, will check that out

it's your hardware then it's not Ubuntu unless it's being misused.

always try Xfce,Kde

have mawk and gawk in synaptic.
[18:34] <Pici> knightstalker: we could do without the commentary.
[18:34] <knightstalker> Pici,k :p
[18:34] <Somelauw> If I have an external harddrive and I want to use it
for both backing up both linux and windows files and you want it to be
very reliable, would you either partition it as nfts or would you double-
partition it with ntfs and ext4?
[18:34] <F1skr> for some reason my ethernet card isn't recognized by
ubuntu, it does work if i boot up a live-cd and in windows just not under
this current installation, any ideas how i can troubleshoot this, and fix
[18:34] <ActionParsnip> prakas: click ubuntu icon in top left then drop
down the installed apps, scroll down and you will see ALL available apps.
You can drag them to the unity bar for convenience
[18:34] <prakas> ActionParsnip: yes but i have to click once then type in
the search bar the name of the app to have it displayed and then click,
in case of menus it was easier, just point and another menu pops up
[18:35] <tasos99> i tried to fsck.ext4 my damaged filesystem from a live
CD but it says its mounted or explicitly opened for another program, what
should i do?
[18:35] <urlin2u> Somelauw, ubuntu will read ntfs windows wont read ext4
easily .
[18:35] <joe__> How can I automate backing up files from my ubuntu server
to windows nas
[18:35] <ActionParsnip> prakas: no, you don't HAVE TO type, as I said
[18:35] <cmdbbq> tasos99: open disk utility from System > Administration
and unmount the HDD in question
[18:36] <prakas> ActionParsnip: or click on All Applications or drag them
to the left dock. i dislike the left dock. takes space of my 10" netbook
[18:36] <tasos99> cmdbbq: Im using a live CD, nothing is mounted at all
[18:36] <knightstalker> prakas,search for terminal once,put it in
[18:36] <urlin2u> prakas, try the applications buton in the left menu.
[18:36] <ActionParsnip> joe__: cron is one solution
[18:36] <Somelauw> I heard ubuntu can read ntfs perfectly, but I would
like it if even more people would confirm it.
[18:36] <prakas> i want to get rid of the left dock ;)
[18:36] <F1skr> i run linux 2.6.38-11
[18:36] <knightstalker> Somelauw,it does read it perfect =)
[18:36] <urlin2u> Somelauw, yes it is true.
[18:36] <cmdbbq> tasos99: it may have automounted the hdd, does it show
up at all in disk utility?
[18:37] <pzn> Guest68384, ppa did not upgrade anything :-( it is there
in sources list, but all "default karmic 11.4 64bits" packages are newer
than ppa
[18:37] <ActionParsnip> prakas: thats different and makes sense. I
suggest you switch to xfce or lxde
[18:37] <ActionParsnip> prakas: or even kde
[18:37] <Somelauw> knightstalker, urlin2u: Thanks
[18:37] <tasos99> cmdbbq: it doesnt show up at 'mount'
[18:38] <tasos99> cmdbbq: and 'umount /dev/sda6' claims that the device
isnt mounted
[18:38] <prakas> ActionParsnip: my screen is 10" and that bar doesnt hide
when an app is lauched. it takes a lot of area of my screen
[18:38] <ActionParsnip> prakas: it can be made to hide
[18:38] <prakas> how?
[18:38] <ActionParsnip> prakas: so will use zero screen
[18:38] <dr-willis> the panel can autohide. and you can make it smaller
[18:39] <ActionParsnip> prakas: its a setting in ccsm.
[18:39] <prakas> ccsm is a command line app?
[18:39] <dr-willis> ccsm tool. unity plugin settings
[18:39] <xyzzy___> Wow, I just discovered that I've switched to an OS
with *no* per-application network control! Not even 3rd party! It's all
based on blind trust that "you don't need it"!
[18:39] <prakas> i see

[18:39] <dr-willis> time to learn sone ubuntu. ;)
[18:39] <ActionParsnip> prakas: so far i have dispelled all the things
you have said about unity...
[18:39] <cmdbbq> tasos99: and sda6 is defnitely the drive in question?
[18:40] <balr0g> hello guys, im newbie, and trying to install a software
outputs this: http://pastebin.com/rZpK6e5Y can anyone please help me to
solve it? tks
[18:40] <urlin2u> xyzzy___, you switched to windows?
[18:40] <tasos99> cmdbbq: thats what fdisk-l told me
[18:40] <cmdbbq> strange
[18:40] <prakas> :)
[18:40] <LearnUbuntu> How can i make PDF to text and count the texts?
[18:40] <balr0g> i tried to apt-get glib-2.0 but it seems doesnt work...
[18:41] <prakas> i feel i should try xubuntu instead. the menus help me
work faster
[18:41] <LearnUbuntu> prakas, LearnUbuntu
[18:41] <lucenut> OK, so I found I can start easy tether in a terminal
session with "easytether connect" but then I have to keep the terminal
window open.
[18:42] <xyzzy___> urlin2u: Per-application firewalls are standard in
Windows. I've probably been through at least 5 in my time. A week on
Ubuntu and I can't even find one. I'm watching stuff from the default
install merrily connect out as we speak
[18:42] <lucenut> How else can I start easy tether?
[18:42] <tasos99> cmdbbq: the filesystem damage tricks fsck into thinking
its already being used
[18:42] <tasos99> cmdbbq: lsof and fuser show nothing
[18:42] <xyzzy___> urlin2u: No idea who it's connecting to or why it
would need to
[18:43] <area51pilot> \join ##windows
[18:43] <ActionParsnip> prakas: thats a better reason to dislike it. I'm
kinda halfway, i can take or leave it but use it so I can support it
[18:43] <trism> balr0g: the files required to compile software are
generally in the -dev packages, in this case you need libglib2.0-dev
[18:43] <prakas> xubuntu looks much better i saw in screenshots now
[18:43] <urlin2u> xyzzy___, you have silent ports, and no danger of the
badware stuff like windows, it is a different thing. If you try to run
linux like windows you will have problems.
[18:43] <LearnUbuntu> I have my desktop screen with VGA. And from
another PC i am connected to SSH. But from another PC using SSH how can i
open Leafpad on the Screen?
[18:43] <tasos99> i tried to fsck.ext4 my damaged filesystem from a live
CD but it says its mounted or explicitly opened for another program, what
should i do?
[18:44] <ActionParsnip> balr0g: what is the output of: lsb_release -sc
[18:44] <prakas> ActionParsnip: working with unity perhaps make me like
5% slower ;) in overall without the menus
[18:45] <prakas> menus were a cool idea. curse on gnome 3 and unity!
[18:45] <urlin2u> prakas, quit complaining you just installed it and are
[18:45] <Pici> xyzzy___: I believe you could craft an apparmor profile to
restrict an application's ability to make network connections, but that
is rather in-depth.

[18:45] <ActionParsnip> LearnUbuntu: i believe it's: export DISPLAY :0:0

[18:45] <prakas> urlin2u: installed it for 2 days
[18:45] <LearnUbuntu> ActionParsnip, thank you, was just googleing..
[18:46] <urlin2u> prakas, great and you are using the support channel
with abuse.
[18:46] <ActionParsnip> prakas: as i always say, there is more than gnome
[18:46] <joe__> urlin: Just boot'em
[18:46] <xyzzy___> urlin2u: That's the classic answer. I don't know what
is particularly Windows-centric about per-application network control.
Linux comes with per-port or per-IP access control in the kernel - it
strikes me that per-application is a logical third option. Windows
security people realised this 10 years ago. People in the Ubuntu forums
spent 10 years telling people it's so great already you just don't need
[18:46] <prakas> ActionParsnip: thanks for recommending xfce :)
[18:46] <ActionParsnip> LearnUbuntu: use websearch to verify, I'm not
100% on the syntax
[18:47] <erez_> ‫היי‬
[18:47] <LearnUbuntu> ActionParsnip, no worries thanks :)
[18:47] <xyzzy___> Pici: I'm not fussed about in-depth, I'd settle for
"possible" at this stage.

[18:49] <guntbert> prakas: this is a support channel, ranting here

[18:49] <trism> balr0g: the files required to compile software are
generally in the -dev packages, in this case you need libglib2.0-dev
(repost from above, sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev;)
[18:49] <urlin2u> prakas, #ubuntu-offtopic is where that belongs, this is
[18:49] <ActionParsnip> joe__: if a system cannot resolve its own name
then sudo will not work, hence sudo -i
[18:50] <xyzzy___> urlin2u: This "only windows heads want per-app
firewalls" reasoning sounds to me like defending Ubuntu by trying to turn
a deficiency into a feature. Again, I don't understand why it's
unreasonable to want to control network access on an application basis.
The best argument against it I've heard is basically that linux apps are
more trustworthy. I don't work at that level of face-value.

no idea whats going on
[19:02] <dr-willis> what no fdisk? ;)
[19:02] <prakas> there is possibly a bug idk. when a shell script has a
line starting with sudo and i run the shell script without sudo, it
doesnt ask me to input the root password and automatically runs the
command as non-root. has anyone tried this?
[19:02] <pr0ton> why doesnt this work? find . -name "*.info"
[19:02] <ActionParsnip> dr-willis: or parted :)
[19:02] <pr0ton> i want to search for files with a .info extension?
[19:03] <Pici> pr0ton: find /path/ -iname "*.info"
[19:03] <pr0ton> doesnt work
[19:03] <Pici> pr0ton: Why not?
[19:03] <prakas> i didn't have the issue with ubuntu 10.04. it always
asked me to enter the password when running the shell script if contained
sudo inside
[19:03] <pr0ton> Pici, it should be recursive for me
[19:03] <ActionParsnip> pr0ton: iname is all i can advise extra
[19:03] <Pici> pr0ton: find is normally recursive.
[19:04] <pr0ton> the files are actually just .info
[19:04] <pr0ton> they're not like, a.info or anything
[19:04] <pr0ton> maybe ubuntu hides files with a . as first character?
=== _s0rta-gnu is now known as _myself_shavin
[19:04] <ActionParsnip> pr0ton: could make a file with the extensions so
it will at least find that
[19:04] <Pici> pr0ton: Linux normally hides files which start with . Use
ls -a to see them, find should bring them up though.
[19:05] <ActionParsnip> pr0ton: * will include hidden files
[19:05] <pr0ton> ActionParsnip, and the command would be?
[19:06] <ActionParsnip> pr0ton: touch findme.info
[19:06] <pr0ton> no, u said, "* will include hidden files"

connected or when it is not?
[19:16] <agoole22> I just did an update, and my touchpad stops working
sporatically, anyone else experience this ?
[19:17] <GhostWolf> stillParsnip, well meaning of simple it should've had
had something in the system settings, least for 11.04 i remember that
part and someone from here telling me to open that but theres nothing on
system settings for samba

[19:18] <meta-coder> stillParsnip: On some forums I read running lsusb
before and after connecting the router helps in identifying something..
[19:19] <Pici> Cypher2: ehh, I suspect this is a better question for
#launchpad, Theres some environment variable that I think you need to set
before you can do that.
[19:19] <Pici> Cypher2: Can't remember what it is though.
[19:19] <prakas> Pici: just pasting a line with sudo inside the script
doesnt work. can i paste here
[19:19] <meta-coder> Pici: I have the router drivers for windows. Can I
make the drivers work under Wine in Ubuntu?
[19:19] <Pici> meta-coder: no

[19:20] <Cypher2> understodd, yet i have difficulty finding an answer.
all the variables i've attempted to set do not work: ssh-add
[19:20] <prakas> Pici: but in 11.04 it doesnt ask me the password
[19:20] <Pici> prakas: It should still ask you in any other release.

[19:20] <prakas> sudo cp test.desktop
[19:20] <agoole22> what packages could break my touchpad ?
[19:20] <Pici> prakas: Are you sure that sudo is not currently caching
your password when you run it?
[19:20] <meta-coder> Pici: *oh typo
[19:20] <prakas> Pici: it doesnt ask me to enter the root password
[19:20] <Pici> prakas: Does it copy the file?
[19:21] <prakas> Pici: no and doesnt show errors either
[19:21] <trism> Cypher2: did you: bzr lp-login nathanel.titane; yet?
[19:21] <Cypher2> ya
[19:21] <prakas> Pici: but running the shellscript with sudo does copy it

[19:21] <Pici> prakas: are you in the same path as test.desktop
[19:22] <prakas> Pici: yes on the same directory

[19:22] <Pici> meta-coder: I don't know what they are. contrary to
popular belief, I don't know everything.
[19:22] <trism> Cypher2: you don't need to login to pull to commit to

[19:22] <Pici> prakas: and you see the output from the ls -l ?
[19:22] <agoole22> which packages handle the mouse functions ?

[19:24] <tvaldes> I've just upgraded a comp from an old version of ubuntu
(8.x?) to 10.04. I used to be able to gksudo nautilus and type in

I've tried several variations. Anyone able to help me out?
[19:25] <agoole22> I'm having troublse with my mouse losing
functionality...anyone have a clue /
[19:25] <agoole22> ?
[19:25] <prakas> Pici: is it a bug of 11.04?
[19:25] <urlin2u> agoole22, can you explain that in more depth?
[19:25] <prakas> or they intentionally disabled it

[19:26] <Cypher2> any idea? i'm no exspert but i do know my way around

[19:26] <agoole22> urlin2u: I can move the mouse, but I can't click on
anything, or move windows
[19:26] <agoole22> urlin2u: but sometimes it'll let me click the power
off button
[19:26] <Pici> prakas: Can you try running sudo -K   and then running
your script again?
[19:26] <agoole22> urlin2u: I can also click links
[19:27] <auronandace> !gksudo | meta-coder
[19:27] <ubottu> meta-coder: If you need to run graphical applications as
root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more
appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See
http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)
[19:27] <prakas> Pici: i didnt enter the root password before
[19:28] <trism> Cypher2: no idea, I would ask in #launchpad as Pici
suggested (I would also try pushing something to
~username/+junk/branchname to see if you can push anywhere)
[19:28] <prakas> Pici: just rebooted it should ask me the password
[19:28] <urlin2u> agoole22, are you plugged into a hub or the computer,
or wireless?
=== esigeen is now known as xsign
[19:28] <Pici> prakas: did you run sudo -K yet?
[19:28] <agoole22> urlin2u: this is the pad, on the laptop
[19:29] <prakas> Pici: let me start the netbook hold on
=== nosa is now known as nosa-j
[19:29] <urlin2u> agoole22, so it's not a mouse but the touchpad?
[19:29] <Cypher2> the junk push fails also.. i've tried.. nada... i.m
actually on the launchpad question page and the only thing it suggests is
switching from username to lp name... which in my case is not registered
for some weird reason... also simple ssh does not connect with same error
[19:29] <Rockj> Q: grub2 in ubuntu - how are you actually supposed to be
able to set the preferred kernel to boot? is there an "easy" way to
actually do this ?
[19:30] <agoole22> urlin2u: yeah, sorry, the touchpad on the laptop, and
its buttons
[19:30] <urlin2u> agoole22, not sure I don't use the touchpad.
=== xangua2 is now known as xangua
[19:30] <Pici> Cypher2: I don't see that you've asked your question in
#launchpad yet though.
[19:30] <agoole22> urlin2u: could it be the window manager ?
[19:30] <Guile> meta-coder: Regarding your questiong, -lm is not just a
gcc option... the -l parameter is for including libraries, and libm is
the common name of math library.
[19:30] <tasos99> how to fsck a mounted filesystem?
[19:31] <urlin2u> Rockj, what are you trying to get as the default and
what are all of the OS's involved.
[19:31] <Cypher2> meaning im on
[19:31] <Rockj> urlin2u: ubuntu 11.04 , trying to make the vserver kernel
the default one to boot up
[19:31] <meta-coder> Guile: SImilarly I want to know all the lib
available to be included as is -lm.
[19:32] <Guile> meta-coder: So, there is no list for which -lx you can
use. The filename to the library which is indicated after -l can be any
name, also you can use your own created library.
[19:32] <Pici> Cypher2: Yes, but you're trying to push to launchpad, so
it is probably best to ask them about any known issues or tips.
[19:33] <Guile> meta-coder: when you yous -lm gcc looks for libm.a which
is commonly at /usr/lib/libm.a
[19:33] <Cypher2> k.. i will
[19:33] <Guile> meta-coder: So you can just use ls -1 /usr/lib/*.a for
knowing which values you can use. :) Gotcha?
[19:34] <meta-coder> Guile: What is libz for? What header files does it
support? And does libm has only math.h and not any other header file?
[19:34] <tasos99> how to force fsck a mounted filesystem?
[19:34] <urlin2u> Rockj, this might help read carefully.
[19:34] <prakas> Pici: it doesn't work
[19:34] <prakas> Pici: what version of ubuntu are you using. does sudo
inside shell script ask you the password when running it non root
[19:35] <prakas> Pici: it worked in 10.04 and 10.10 and 7.04 dont know
why its not working in 11.04
[19:35] <prakas> Pici: no error messages in dmesg either
[19:35] <Guile> meta-coder: libm has only a header file, commonly named:
[19:36] <tvaldes> Can someone help me run CD/DVD creator as root in
10.04? "gksudo nautilus burn:///" isn't working, and it did in older
versions... Thanks!
[19:36] <meta-coder> Guile: Thanks dude.. :)
[19:36] <BarkingFish> tasos - forcing an fsck on a mounted FS is a very
bad idea, fsck can severely damage a mounted filesystem. Whatever you
do, it's at your own risk
[19:37] <Guile> meta-coder: you are welcome.
[19:37] <_s0rta-gnu> I have a fresh Ubuntu 10.04.03 install, and I can
not change the default open application for any damn mime type. It's
sooooo annoying. What is so hard about telling ubuntu to open an mp3 with
audacious instead of totem ??? ROAR! No other ubuntu does this.
[19:38] <kyle__> tasos99: If you used LVM, and have free space to make a
snapshot partition, lookup making an LVM snapshot. You can safely run
fsck on the snapshot, to see if the fsck is neccesary.
[19:39] <urlin2u> _s0rta-gnu, mp3 right click properties open with
[19:39] <tasos99> kyle__: the filesystem is severely damaged, and shows
up as mounted, when its not

[19:39] <tasos99> im booting from a live CD.
[19:39] <_s0rta-gnu> it will do it one time, but does not save the change
like it should
[19:40] <kyle__> tasos99: Ahhh. Well, then I'd fsck, and pray. If it's
that dammnaged, it's probably the only way you're going to get your data
back. (And you DID check to make sure the live cd didn't auto-moun it or
[19:40] <Symantic> hello everyone.
[19:40] <tasos99> kyle__: it did NOT automount it
[19:40] <urlin2u> _s0rta-gnu, really if you choose audacious it does not

[19:40] <Symantic> is there any way to fix the mouse lag when you press a
[19:40] <orazio> hi, ubuntu freeze with SSD drive
[19:40] <kyle__> tasos99: :) Good. Just had to check
[19:40] <Symantic> or is it because hardware interupt causes it.
[19:40] <tasos99> but fsck doesnt want to start, cause its 'mounted'!
[19:40] <kyle__> tasos99: Check /etc/mtab
[19:41] <tasos99> umount /dev/sda6 sais that /etc/mtab says that its not

[19:41] <Symantic> does everyones mouse lag when they press a key?
[19:41] <_s0rta-gnu> yeah. seriously. I even unchecked "always open with"
and rechecked it. Does nothing. Changed it in
~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list, nothing.
[19:41] <meta-coder> How can I implement SteadySate/ Deep Freeze on
Ubuntu natty ??
[19:41] <kyle__> Symantic: Mine doesn't when you press a key.
[19:42] <tasos99> Symantic: This is a protection for laptop, so you dont
click anything while typing
[19:42] <Symantic> bah
[19:42] <kyle__> tasos99: Sadly that doesn't work on mine, touchpad is
always active.
[19:42] <tasos99> Symantic: you can disable it with System->Preferences-
>Mouse Preferences->TouchPad->1st option
[19:42] <Symantic> thank you
[19:43] <_s0rta-gnu> @daavis -- you can always force a dismount with

[20:08] <nitroghost> helo!
[20:08] <usr13> Antonio007: What is p54
[20:08] <usr13> ?
[20:08] <nitroghost> got a question, wonder if i can get some feedback
[20:08] <Antonjo> prism driver
[20:08] <nitroghost> i've got a netbook
[20:09] <usr13> Antonio007: prism WiFi NIC?
[20:09] <nitroghost> and ubuntu 10.04
[20:09] <Antonjo> yes
[20:09] <trism> Antonjo: the p54 firmware is in linux-firmware-nonfree,
the drivers are included by default
[20:09] <usr13> Antonio007: What version of Ubuntu do you have installed?
[20:09] <nitroghost> and flash videos and contents were somewhat slower
than windows
[20:09] <usr13> Antonio007: lsb_release -sc
[20:09] <usr13> show us
[20:10] <nitroghost> wondering if that got fixed or "faster" on the
latest version?
[20:10] <Antonjo> ubuntu 11, but I upgraded the kernel to version 3
[20:10] <usr13> Antonjo: There is your problem. The new kernel
[20:10] <Antonjo> just a minute, ì'l tell you
[20:10] <user> How is Ubuntu 11?

however PHP cant chmod it. (i dont want to remove chmod as in production
it wont be on NTFS). it has got a umask of 000. what can i do?
[20:13] <trism> Antonjo: we don't support custom kernels here, although
there is no reason it shouldn't work assuming you have the firmware from
linux-firmware-nonfree and properly enabled the drivers
[20:13] <user> No that my APT-GET INSTALL doesn't work anymore what will
happen to all the downloads I just did. About 300MB
[20:13] <klj613> i thought i solved the problem before by using the ntfs-
3g driver
[20:14] <Antonjo> The fact is this: the usb stick is US-robotics
[20:14] <Antonjo> I tried nediswrapper
[20:14] <trism> Antonjo: for the stock natty kernel, you need to make
sure to update to 2.6.38-11 since there is a bug in versions less than
2.6.38-10 which will cause p54 to fail to connect
[20:14] <Antonjo> but after, say 3 minutes, the system hangs

[20:21] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob: Ubuntu 11.04 probably won't need noapic
(the bug probably would've been fixed), but when booting off USB, hit
'esc' during the purple screen with the icons at the bottom.
[20:21] <th0r> andaluz: that is usually added when there is a space in
the name/title
[20:21] <Gnarls> whats up noobuntus?
[20:22] <brontosaurusrex> what is the latest version of chrome stable?
[20:22] <andaluz> th0r, you are right. But, I don't add spaces at all,
that's the whole problem. On MS Windows I did the same, which is
processed well
[20:22] <ExtraBob> iwantfroyo no the bug is not fixed, when booting from
the usb stick it crashes, when booting from the usb the scren is black
not purple like 10.10 and i cant seem to find anyway to find a noapic
option or any other option for that matter
[20:23] <andaluz> I think it's a bug...
[20:23] <usr13> TeleportLisa: What type of CDROM is it? IDE? or...?

from the USB? (Hitting esc right after the BIOS screen, before the purple

[20:25] <hydro_> omg i am so lost. Icannot install nvidia
drivers...anybody know how to disable xserver
[20:26] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob, if you can get to Grub2, you can edit the
first option to include noapic. I'm not sure if this works from a
liveusb, though.
[20:26] <TeleportLisa> ls: cannot access /dev/cdrom: No such file or
[20:26] <TeleportLisa> The program 'pastebinit' is currently not
installed. You can install it by typing:
[20:26] <ExtraBob> iwantfroyo i can get the options try ubuntu install
ubuntu test memory etc etc, BUT the screen is black and white in 11.04
not pink like 10.10 and for me there are no extra options like in 10.10
when you hit f6 over try ubuntu there came up a little square with
several option including noapic but this for me from an usb stick does
not exist in ubuntu 11.04
[20:26] <TeleportLisa> sudo apt-get install pastebinit
[20:26] <TeleportLisa> so should I install?
[20:26] <usr13> yes
[20:26] <Antonjo> usr13: I tried a live Puppy and my stick worked out of
the box. In Puppy with lsmod I saw
[20:26] <Antonjo> mac80211       99898 2 p54usb,p54common.
[20:26] <Antonjo> So I think that I do not need ndiswrapper, is it?
[20:27] <mneptok> user: profanity, even obfuscated, is not welcome
[20:27] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob, I'm not sure if Grub2 is installed on the
USB, but you might be able to get to it before hitting the purple screen.
esc is the trigger key.
[20:27] <usr13> Antonjo: No, you don't need ndiswrapper
[20:27] <trism> Antonjo: correct, you shouldn't need ndiswrapper, but you
will need linux-firmware-nonfree, because the p54 firmware was moved
there and it is not installed by default
[20:27] <hydro_> .anybody know how to disable xserver
[20:27] <ExtraBob> iwantfroyo i say again in ubuntu 11.04 the screen is
not purple but bacl and white
[20:28] <TeleportLisa> ok installed and re-entered command. got this
[20:28] <TeleportLisa> ls: cannot access /dev/cdrom: No such file or
[20:28] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob, and I'm not talking about the screen that
asks you the language and whether you want to install or try. I assume
you know what Grub2 looks like?
[20:28] <TeleportLisa> You are trying to send an empty document, exiting.
[20:28] <BarkingFish> trism, can I just check, the linux-firmware-
nonfree, do you know if there's any firmware in there for atheros usb and
rtl8192cu sticks?
[20:28] <Antonjo> because it is full of tutorials for my stick us
robotics suggestig ndiswrapper
[20:29] <iwantfroyo> And as long as you can get to the screen that asks
if you want to install or try (since it seems that's what you're talking
about), then you should be able to edit the menu option from there to
include noapic without using F6.
[20:29] <user> Does anyone have the Skype pluging for Rhythmbox? The only
freaking place to download it is closed.
[20:29] <trism> Antonjo: prism54 chipsets used to require ndiswrapper

[20:29] <TeleportLisa> yes, yesterday
[20:29] <BarkingFish> at the moment, I have 2 usb wifi sticks, an Atheros
AR5523 and an RTL8192 stick, both using ndiswrapper. I'd prefer not to
run it at all if I can help it.
[20:29] <trism> BarkingFish: I'm sorry, I do not know, I just have a
bunch of p54 cards and they need the isl firmware

[20:31] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob, so excluding the language-screen popup

pink like in 10.10
[20:32] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob, sorry. I must've missed it. Oops. I think
it might actually supposed to be black for Natty. It certainly is for
Ubuntu Studio and Xubuntu.
[20:33] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob, is it that it's black that is the issue?
[20:33] <AsSlowAsHell> does anyone know of a good channel for discussing
security strategies? I would like to talk to someone to check if my
strategy for securing commuications between pre-trusted devices using AES
over open ad-hoc 802.11g has flaws (most definately does, I can name a
few but have ideas for fixes)
[20:33] <trism> Antonjo: yes, you should use the p54 modules included
with the kernel instead of ndiswrapper with recent kernels, download and
install linux-firmware-nonfree and linux-image-2.6.38-11-generic from
packages.ubuntu.com and it should work fine
[20:33] <Pici> AsSlowAsHell: ##security would be a good start

use the firmware once you've installed the package? Where do I put it and
so on?
[20:35] <fr0sted> yo all
[20:35] <fr0sted> :)
[20:35] <ExtraBob> iwantfroyo the issue is that there is no noapic option
that i can find and without it i cant use ubuntu 11.04 because it simply
wont load and freezes, in ubuntu 10.10 by selecting the noapic option
would make ubuntu 10.10 run nicely and not freeze during startup
[20:35] <BarkingFish> it looks like the nonfree package actually does
have firmware which will run both of my usb wifi sticks so i can shift
[20:35] <usr13> TeleportLisa: Well, I don't know. You might reboot and
see if it comes up.
[20:36] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob, you can hit 'e' to edit the entries, and
just add 'noapic' to the end. You don't have to have the option in 'F6'
to do it.
[20:36] <trism> BarkingFish: it should be detected automatically and used
if available (for my cards, there is a line in dmesg that will list when
the firmware is detected, or missing)
[20:36] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob, Just make sure you edit the option you're
going to select. It doesn't do it universally.
[20:36] <mongy> ExtraBob, not sure on your hardware but have you tried
nomodeset ?
[20:36] <TeleportLisa> i've tried that already. Oh well. I'll post on the
support forum and see if anyone knows. Thanks though :)
[20:36] <BarkingFish> excellent, thank you trism
[20:37] <BarkingFish> I'm going to drop out and nail ndiswrapper for a
moment, reboot and see whether the system picks up anything from the new
[20:37] <BarkingFish> back in a while :)
[20:37] <trism> BarkingFish: good luck
[20:37] <BarkingFish> thanks
[20:37] <BarkingFish> see you in a bit

cant edit the option pressing f1-f12 does nothing but gives a peeping
[20:38] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob, You don't have to hit those. Just press
'e' while over the option you want to boot.
[20:38] <Antonjo> After installing linux-firmware-nonfree, do i need some
modprobe xxxxx command ?
[20:38] <usr13> TeleportLisa: It might be broke.
[20:39] <usr13> Antonjo: You may need to reboot
[20:39] <TeleportLisa> It works fine when I switch back over to windows
[20:39] <trism> Antonjo: when you plug in your card the modules should be
loaded automatically
[20:39] <Antonjo> usr13: ok
[20:39] <trism> Antonjo: but yeah, you should reboot if ndiswrapper is
already running
[20:39] <Antonjo> plug before reboot?
[20:40] <ExtraBob> iwantfrotyo are you telling me that by pressing the
letter E over and option for example try ubuntu or install ubuntu in the
usb stick boot menu a window will open that allows my to select different
boot options
[20:40] <usr13> Antonjo: Yea, ... doesn't matter
[20:40] <trism> Antonjo: shouldn't matter, you may want to hold off
plugging in until after you reboot so you can watch /var/log/kern.log and
see the detection messages

background are black, sometimes they are white. Also the icons for some
applications seem to change as well. What is causing this?
[20:43] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob, what happens is a text box (of sorts) will
appear under it with a bunch of techie stuff. Just add 'noapic' to the
very end.

a new config to read. I don't use samba, but maybe "sudo service samba
restart" will do the trick.
[20:53] <usr13> tvaldes: You will need to install a CD or DVD Writer
before you can burn CDs
[20:53] <celldee> Ghostwolf: sudo service smbd restart
[20:53] <trism> Antonjo: can you pastebin the dmesg output when you plug
in your card?
[20:53] <Antonjo> ok
[20:54] <GhostWolf> rumpe1, ok, all i know is i did it before, but in
11.04 i also remembering that there was samba in the system settings and
i just did a fresh install cause i had a problem with an old hdd
[20:54] <BarkingFish> trism, unfortunately, the autodetection was a
spectacular failure
[20:54] <GhostWolf> celldee, would that work if i only installed samba?
meaning someone earlier just told me to do sudo apt-get install samba and
nothing else
[20:54] <ExtraBob> iwantfroyo pressing the keyboard letter E does nothing
run ubuntu option is slected, pressing tab gives a code line int he
bottom, pressing tab and then typing in the word noapic does also nothing
and the thing starts to run and freezes
[20:55] <BarkingFish> neither of my devices were picked up, but firmware
exists in the nonfree setup for both pieces of equipment. Any ideas on
what I do now?
[20:55] <TeleportLisa> It seems that my desktop keeps changing colors on
its own. Sometimes my menu bars and terminal background are black,
sometimes they are white. Also the icons for some applications seem to
change as well. What is causing this?
[20:55] <celldee> GhostWolf: You can check to see if Samba is running -
sudo service smbd status

[20:56] <oxseyn> Banshee just crashed on me, then continued to crash
every time I attempted to start the application. I removed it and
reinstalled it using apt, but it still crashes on startup. Any idea what
I can do?
[20:56] <GhostWolf> celldee, it is, says its start/running
[20:56] <trism> BarkingFish: did you look at the dmesg output when
plugging in your card?
[20:56] <BarkingFish> trism, yes, there was none.
[20:56] <usr13> TeleportLisa: Maybe your PC needs a good cleaning?
[20:56] <celldee> GhostWolf: OK so restart it and see what happens
[20:57] <GhostWolf> ok celldee just did. im going to try again on vista
see if it lets me connect with the username/password. i haven't set the
password or username but its weird how vista asks me for it
[20:57] <ExtraBob> iwantfroyo pressing the keyboard letter E does nothing
run ubuntu option is slected, pressing tab gives a code line int he
bottom, pressing tab and then typing in the word noapic does also nothing

[20:57] <trism> BarkingFish: which wireless usb device is this?
[20:57] <TeleportLisa> usr13: is there some way to check if it's
overheating? and by cleaning do you mean like physically with alcohol or
something, or cleaning up files and things
[20:58] <usr13> TeleportLisa: I mean physical cleaning. Is this a
Desktop or Laptop computer?
[20:58] <TeleportLisa> laptop computer
[20:58] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob: weird.
[20:58] <phpcip> ey guys
[20:58] <BarkingFish> trism, the first one is a Siemens Gigaset USB 108
(129B:160C) and the second is an RTL 8167, using the 8192cu firmware
[20:58] <phpcip> I have a strange question if you feel up to the
[20:58] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob: What works on one version won't work on
[20:58] <usr13> TeleportLisa: Yea, the motherboard could be overheating.
[20:58] <ExtraBob> iwantfroyo is it possible that a dvd version of 11.04
would give more options
[20:59] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob: Try some more options.
[20:59] <BarkingFish> the Siemens stick is using AR5523 chipset, trism

[20:59] <StrangeCharm> when my laptop running natty is connected to an
external vga display and i close the screen before unplugging the
display; when i reopen the screen, it shows only black and white vertical
stripes about 5px wide. the only way to resolve it is to close the screen
again, plug it in, open the screen and then un-plug it. how can i make
this not happen?
[20:59] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob: It's possible. I think that they have
different boot screens.
[20:59] <yacc> Any idea how to make Ubuntu (10.04LTS) probe freshly my
[20:59] <phpcip> what I'm trying to do is block access to my website,
based on certain urls or URL regex from specific IP addresses.
[20:59] <ExtraBob> iwantfroyo i can not try any options that is the
problem there for me is no way to try more option because there are no
options to choose from

possibilities, but is the most-likely one.

plugging it in again

[21:01] <GhostWolf> celldee, still a no go, it keeps saying username and
or password are not correct. but i haven't added a username or password
to samba's config file. just changed the Workgroup to MSHOME and added
some info at the end to show the directory of where the files go to
[21:01] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob, You might want to write them down, though.
[21:01] <Dinux17> can I recover that?

with. The only thing to check if you've deleted it, is that you haven't
emptied the trash folder on the server
[21:02] <ezyang> Hello all. I would like to publish a new version in a
PPA of a package for Natty, in lieu of a previous maintainer. There have
been no changes, and this is a source only package. What do I do?
[21:02] <ExtraBob> iwantfroyo i think possibly i will just install the
10.10 ubuntu version since i know it works :)
[21:02] <cereal> anyone know why my lucid box is not autoconfiguring an
ipv6 address?

[21:02] <iwantfroyo> ExtraBob: No harm in that. I don't really like Natty
anyways. Running Lucid right now.
[21:02] <BarkingFish> Dinux17, I suspect you'll find that's gone then.
[21:03] <Dinux17> genii-around, they are not happy with that, not at all
[21:03] <BarkingFish> As genii-around said, data recovery lab may be your
only option

theres a file i need and its a huge file that is compressed and i can
connect with my xp os thats on another hdd on this pc, but that hdd is

[21:04] <yeats> Dinux17: not really - the best solution for that kind of
thing is regular backups
[21:05] <trism> BarkingFish: from a quick search, it doesn't seem like
the ar5523 driver is included in the kernel yet (although the info I
found may be outdated), http://wiki.debian.org/ar5523 describes how to
build the work-in-progress one (may be better off with ndiswrapper if it
is working though)

[21:07] <youngin> Yeah, but why won't it come off. It's like its atoms
have merged with the keyboard plastic, what the fuck?
[21:07] <Zoopee> Hello, folks.
[21:07] <Safe_> youngin, no as I said, the plastic gets distorted because
the moisture disfigure it, it can't be cleaned off
[21:07] <youngin> Safe_: oh i see.. plastic warp..
[21:07] <youngin> thats fucked up
[21:07] <improveupon> gr33tings. i still have this problem: linux keeps
crashing, it cannot detect a hard drive, and windows never crashes like
this. after linux crashes, you have to use sysrq, then it runs POST and
it says no hard drive, reseat your hard drive to resolve. you manually
power off and reboot and it's fine.

aren't doing PPAs

various errors/problems depending on how I try to go about it. The files
I'd like to backup are rsync'd from a remote server with permission
preserved, so I'm not sure how else to do it.

windows never does this.

where this would be configured?

[21:13] <ChogyDan> anyone know anything about making an s-video out port
work on an nvidia card?
[21:13] <yacc> What do I need to do when I install a new graphics card
into an existing box?
[21:14] <Brutus-> Hi, i'm watching the fstab man. There is write 'for
more documentation ... have a look at nfs(5)' . What does nfs(5) mean?
[21:14] <ChogyDan> yacc: is it nvidia or ati?
[21:14] <yacc> ChogyDan, which driver? (Nvidia offers a choice of 3: nv
old opensource, nouveau new opensource, nvidia closed source)
[21:14] <POVaddct> Brutus-: section 5 of the manpages (man 5 nfs)
[21:14] <usr13> tvaldes: You have two DVD readers, first is the Sony the
other is Atapi So, which one is the DVD Writer?
[21:15] <ChogyDan> yacc: nvidia, closed source
[21:15] <tvaldes> usr13: I know they both say "CD-ROM" and not DVD-RW or
whatever it is that indicates them as writers, but one definitely is a
writer, and the other is not. It even pops up with "Blank DVD-ROM" and
asks to write to it... Is there an easy way to figure out which is which?
I'm looking into it now. I appreciate all the help!
[21:15] <yacc> ChogyDan, then nvidia-settings is your "tool of choice".
[21:15] <usr13> tvaldes: Which one is it? The Sony? Or the other one?
[21:15] <POVaddct> Brutus-: manpages are divided into sections. for
example, section 1 is user commmands, section 5 is config files, section
8 is admin commands.
[21:15] <ChogyDan> yacc: wait, are you answering my question?
[21:16] <yacc> ChogyDan, in my case it's one last try to make Nouveau
work with my onboard 7050 nvidia, and afterwards if that does not work, a
PCIe ATI Radeon will be installed.
[21:16] <Brutus-> POVaddct, when i write man 5 nfs on terminal says there
is not man for nfs :(
[21:16] <yacc> ChogyDan, trying, at least by adding what I know.
[21:16] <ivan83> hello people
[21:16] <tvaldes> usr13: I'm working on it.. The faces of the drives are
void of any branding.. Just the typical DVD-RW logos.
[21:16] <ivan83> :)
[21:16] <usr13> tvaldes: You should be able to look at the front of the
drive. One of them should say Sony
[21:16] <ChogyDan> yacc: well, the kernel will detect drivers
automatically for all the opensource and installed stuff
[21:16] <hostdream> hello, is there a way to make a ubuntu mirror on a
centos ? (with rsync)
[21:17] <usr13> tvaldes: Well, if you don't know, I don't either.
[21:17] <tvaldes> usr13: It's the Sony DDU1615
[21:17] <ChogyDan> yacc: I am looking at the nvidia-settings prog, but I
don't see anything. Hence my need for help unfortunately :(
[21:17] <yacc> ChogyDan, my current happyness level with nvidia is not
exactly high: nouveau relies on KMS, when the KMS noveau module gets
loaded, my LCDs go into powersaving mode, and to get them back from
blackness, I need to reboot.
[21:17] <POVaddct> Brutus-: if you want to look up some nfs specific
mount options, look into man mount
[21:17] <usr13> tvaldes: So the Sony is the burner. Right?
[21:18] <ChogyDan> yacc: try the closed source driver
[21:18] <yeats> Brutus-: 'sudo apt-get install nfs-common' - then you'll
be able to do 'man nfs'
[21:18] <yacc> ChogyDan, going with nv, by disabling nouveau KMS, I end
with a Xserver that uses only one LCD, and the other LCD displays nice
memory dump graphics, ...
[21:18] <tvaldes> usr13: Sorry, jumped the gun there. NOT the sony...
The other is a LiteON 20x DVD burner.
[21:19] <yacc> ChogyDan, and going with nvidia-173, now that's the
curious one, the box started to freeze since then :(
[21:19] <usr13> tvaldes: So what is it you want to put on a one? An iso?
[21:19] <PeterVenkman> Is someone familiar with a "sink callback failure"
related to pavucontrol?

one working LCD panel (nv), or two working LCDs (nvidia) with random

host a website with ubuntu(not server just normal, cus I'm a super noob),
and since I can't host on port 80 I had to use a different port, 8080 so
now I have to add :8080 to the end of the url. Is there a way to make it
automatically go to 8080 instead of 80?

You should research further to figure out why 80 is being blocked.

[21:52] <BiKER-JENS> hehe bad boy ;-)
[21:53] <travelton> isaac: That's probably your problem. You should setup
port forwarding so that any requests that hit port 80 on your router
translate to 8080 on your desktop.
[21:53] <LearnUbuntu> usr13, export DISPLAY=:0.0 && terminal ; The
program 'terminal' is currently not installed. You can install it by
typing: apt-get install rsplib-tools
[21:53] <travelton> isaac: no problem! It's just a matter of getting that
setup.. I would really caution you against setting up your desktop under
DMZ. You're basically turning off your firewall for your desktop.
[21:53] <littlegirl> zykotick9: He's done that now. He's just wondering
why it changed. Now I seem to remember the default terminal color for
Ubuntu is a white background with black writing, right? That's what it
changed to, so I'm thinking it went back to default as a result of the
[21:53] <usr13> LearnUbuntu: sudo apt-get install rsplib-tools

once (per session)
[21:54] <LearnUbuntu> usr13, let me do that..
[21:54] <zykotick9> littlegirl, i suppose that's possible - updates
shouldn't typically change "user" settings however
[21:54] <Bash> Is it not possible to install programs on a live usb
[21:54] <isaac> travelton, Yeah I was planning on eventually just
forwarding the ports I needed... To do the 80 to 8080 thing, do you think
it'd be in Application rules? The Application Rules option is used to
open single or multiple ports in your firewall when the router senses
data sent to the Internet on a outgoing "Trigger" port or port range.
Special Applications rules apply to all computers on your internal

concerned about that the settings did change?

[21:57] <zykotick9> Bash, if you want to use a USB drive as a real

persistence) [NOTE installing onto USB requires specifically telling grub
where to install]

[21:58] <jamiewan> BiKER-JENS:
[21:58] <travelton> isaac: If you get frustrated, just take a step back
and read this awesome blog: http://495west.com/post/9885249988/the-wrong-
[21:58] <anirban> My evince can't open djvu books. :( Any help?
[21:58] <zykotick9> Bash, re:irssi - i'm not sure, where did you install
irssi to? That could certainly make a difference. Persistence is not
something I've used extensively, after initial testing i decided full
installs to USB where more useful for me personally.
[21:59] <Bash> zykotick9: That sounds reasonable, was a long time ago I
tinkered with ubuntu, would it suffice to use a 4gb stick if I want some
smaller programs + some space for file keeping?
[21:59] <anirban> Nevermind, I installed the debugging symbols and it
[21:59] <Bash> zykotick9: I just used apt-get install irssi and it stayed
after a reboot.
[22:00] <isaac> travelton, Thanks :D! I had an application rule of 80
trigger and 8080 firewall, and it was causing the site to not let me
connect every other time I tried pretty much. Hopefully it was just cus
it was in the dmz or something though. And thanks for the blog link :D.
[22:00] <travelton> isaac: Other way around... 80 should be the
firewall... Right?
[22:00] <zykotick9> Bash, FYI ubuntu's requirements state 5GB minimum HD
space - i've done a lot of Ubuntu installs onto 4GB and have always run
out of space quickly (you could of course use Minimal install media and
make Ubuntu much smaller, but that's not the typical desktop anymore)
[22:01] <isaac> travelton, it opens the firewall port when it senses the
trigger port, I think. So it's how I had it, right?
[22:01] <Bash> zykotick9: I wouldn't need the extras, as media players or
compiz or anything, just the barebones, but if you say it's too small I
will get a 16gb stick instead
[22:02] <travelton> isaac: Oh. That's why... Application Trigger doesn't
sound right.
[22:03] <zykotick9> Bash, 4GB too small for standard Desktop, but you
COULD use minimal to install a smaller environment - i use 8GB quite
comfortable for my Virtual Machines
[22:03] <travelton> isaac: I have to run, but I'll be happy to help you
further. If you DM me, I'll send you my email address.
[22:03] <Bash> zykotick9: Right, I'll get 16gb just to avoid problems.
[22:04] <lsaac> travelton, What else could it be? and I disconnected cus
I was playing with the router and it had to reset XD
[22:04] <cozmoz> hey, if I want firefox to use VLC media player for all
my files, how do I do that?
[22:04] <Bash> zykotick9: One last question, as I will use this live
ubuntu only to retrieve files from broken windows disks, is it possible
to transfer files from this one to a seperate windows disk?
[22:05] <zykotick9> Bash, i don't see why not...
[22:05] <travelton> isaac: I have to run, but I'll be happy to help you
further. If you DM me, I'll send you my email address.

[22:08] <zykotick9> LearnUbuntu, since oracle just pulled the plug on
Distros being able to install Java you need to go through them to install
it (if possible, I'd recommend you use OpenJDK if at all possible)

[22:11] <aj00200> coraxx: i'm just guessing but you might want to find
the SANE website or see if they have a project on Launchpad
[22:11] <tomodachi> coraxx: i guess you could start by checking out who
is the package maintainer for the ubuntu package, then google yourself
upstream to some sources, where you can commit your code
[22:11] <tomodachi> at least thats why I would do
[22:11] <zykotick9> LearnUbuntu, good luck. I'm one of those people that
try to avoid Proprietary or non-distro based installs. I've also never
had too much use for java, so little personal experinece. Hope you get
it all working.
[22:12] <LearnUbuntu> zykotick9, no worries!! thanks
[22:13] <IGITIHI> zykotick9: I have no idea what ntp is but that's when
the boot process stops. That's the last message I get. But I messed my
system up, trying to switch from Ubuntu to LUbuntu. Any ideas? How could
I repair it?
[22:13] <zykotick9> IGITIHI, ntp - Network Time Protocol - it autosets
the time
[22:14] <TAndriamirado> IGITIHI: IMO it's not ntp's fault. Maybe your
root partition couldn't be mounted (or have errors), so a critical system
component couldn't run. Try to start in failsafe mode, or, better: boot
with a live-cd and verify your filesystems. Beware what you do ;-)
[22:14] <coraxx> tomodachi, aj00200 thanx both :-) .. I was looking for a
way to learn how to do it (I can program of course). I wanted to know if
there was like a "scanner template" that I could develop on, so I can add
drivers for unsupported scanners ...by maybe reverse-engineering (I have
found a beta version of a tool that can monitor the USB traffic in
Microsoft Windows) ... if there is a way to...
[22:15] <coraxx> ...utilise that info into a driver, that would be great
[22:15] <zykotick9> IGITIHI, the real stopage "probably" comes right
after that and you might not see it? Would be my guess. If it's just
NTP i would imagine there is a timeout, and after that occured, the
system would boot. Good luck.

a few minutes to help me out.
[22:17] <Somelauw> Can parted deal with ext4 filesystems?
[22:18] <zykotick9> Somelauw, i'm SURE
[22:18] <coraxx> aj00200: ...they talk of an API, which sounds VERY
interesting. I just wish there were more details outthere on the web
about how to create USB drivers in Linux for hardware that is not
supported but you own....so you might be able to get reverse-enginering
data from.
[22:18] <Somelauw> And vfat?
[22:18] <TAndriamirado> IGITIHI: BUT the 1st thing to verify is: your
BIOS system date/time. It already happened to me that a faulty bios
date/time caused the ext4 filesystem to not being able to be mounted, NOR
repaired (which 'd be dangerous!).
[22:18] <zykotick9> Somelauw, i'm NOT SURE - but Yes
[22:18] <NoReGreT> zykotick9: yeah i guessed that far, but why is it
mounting on startup.. i can't find anything in fstab for taht..
[22:19] <zykotick9> Somelauw, FYI you've named to format types, where are
somewhat independent of partitions - which parted is designed to work
[22:19] <mmyers> I'm trying to install ubuntu onto a Mac Mini. One of

occur. The drive clicks around for a while, then goes silent, and
nothing ever happens.
[22:19] <zykotick9> NoReGreT, it's GNOME - not fstab related!

[22:21] <zeus_> hi all, i still need help. in my ubuntu 11.04 desktop
performance are low. Can i install KDE or do you think i'll same results?
In your experience is kde faster than gnome ?
[22:21] <aj00200> coraxx: first, you need a way to get the USB data. You
mentioned a windows tool, you will need this. I am looking for a way to
do this on linux now
[22:22] <tab1293> is there any bash operator that is opposite to the "*"?
so instead of listing all mp3 files like "ls *.mp3" list everything
except mp3 files
[22:22] <aj00200> coraxx: it appears that wireshark can capture USB data
[22:22] <zeus_> tab1293: ls -l * | grep -v -e ".mp3"
[22:22] <coraxx> aj00200: to tool I was reffered to was this one -->
[22:23] <Brutus-> zeus_, gnome is faster than kde. Are you using Unity?
[22:23] <zykotick9> Brutus-, don't try to use umask like that? umask
determines the default file creation permissions for all system files
(i'm not even sure you can use it on a per-folder basis - i believe that
requires ACLs) - good luck
[22:24] <zeus_> Brutus-: Unity and gnome seems to be the same (probably
unity is a little bit slower)
[22:24] <aj00200> coraxx: so, depending on how much you can understand
about the protocol that is used (wireshark should help with that) you can
move between windows and linux coding as you go if you don't understand
something or doing a lot at once
[22:24] <coraxx> aj00200: yes, but If the data was already in Linux then
there wouldn't be a problem ;-) .... to see the device work proberly it
will have to go the MS Windows, right ?

[22:33] <onicrom> hello peoples, anyone seen a situation with an ldap
config where the root user can do username lookups, but non-root users
[22:33] <LearnUbuntu> zykotick9, thanks. by doing this "sudo apt-get
install openjdk-6-jdk openjdk-6-jre openjdk-6-jre-lib icedtea-plugin
openjdk-6-jre-zero" the "Translucent" works without any problem.
[22:33] <zykotick9> LearnUbuntu, NICE - that's good to hear actually.
Big thanks for the update :)
[22:33] <usr13> onicrom: What is a username lookup?
[22:34] <onicrom> user13 id
[22:34] <onicrom> or getent passwd
[22:34] <boba__> is it save to resize linux home and root partitons?
[22:34] <zykotick9> LearnUbuntu, if you run into any shortcoming with
OpenJDK/JRE you should report them as bugs. Now more then ever,
OpenJDK/JRE is important!
[22:35] <usr13> boba__: I would classify it as a little risky but doable.
Backup your data.
[22:35] <LearnUbuntu> zykotick9, i was tired with Fedora yum openJDK
Translucent did not ever worked. But with Ubuntu worked like charm, i am
very happy with this.
[22:35] <LearnUbuntu> Thanks again for the direction.
[22:36] <boba__> usr13: does it make a difference if you enlarge them or
shrink them... I personally want to enalrage them since I am running out
of space...
[22:37] <zykotick9> LearnUbuntu, may I PM you?
[22:37] <LearnUbuntu> Sure zykotick9
[22:37] <usr13> boba__: Shrinking is a little riskier I would say, but
only because you may bump the end of the data storage area.
[22:38] <boba__> usr13: thanks
[22:38] <Malang> how we can register our nick for freenode server use
[22:39] <usr13> boba__: I would venture to say that you'll have something
well in excess of a 95% success rate.
[22:39] <Brutus-> I followed the ubuntu tutorial to automount partitions
at boot but when i digit mount -a to check if everything is ok nothing
happens and partitions don't get mounted. What do i wrong?
[22:39] <usr13> boba__: I would call it pretty safe, but any time you
start changing the partition tables, there is a risk.
[22:39] <onicrom> usr13, another interesting thing, my own user is both
local and in ldap, when i type 'id' i can see the gid numbers but no
names, so its querying ldap
[22:41] <boba__> usr13: do you by any chance know how much space
virtualbox plus windows xp on it would require? I currently have only 2.7
G on my linux root partition ... virtualbox will be host on my ubuntu...
and want to be able to run windows xp in it
[22:41] <zykotick9> !register > Malang
[22:41] <ubottu> Malang, please see my private message
[22:42] <boba__> usr13: on the other hand i have a dual boot with both
windows and ubuntu where the windows has 12 G partition that I might
delete it and give it to the linux root and home
[22:44] <usr13> boba__: I'm pretty sure 2.7G is not enough. 12G or more
will suffice, (i think...)
[22:45] <boba__> usr13: so I should add these 12 G to the root partition
[22:46] <boba__> usr13: the home partition is irrelelvant for the virtual
box memory requirements

[22:46] <benzipperer> Hi: I'm looking for help getting sound out of my
laptop's headphone jack. #alsa is not responding to my query. Anyone up
to help or have suggestions for other forums for support?
[22:47] <z3ro3x> What's the easiest way to reuse an encrypted home after
a fresh install? I'd rather not overwrite /home during a re-install.
[22:47] <supNow> benzipperer: Do your speakers work?
[22:48] <benzipperer> supNow: thanks. yep. internal speaker is fine.
headphone jack used to work fine on 10.04. I did a fresh install of 11.04
and am having trouble with headphones only.
[22:48] <benzipperer> supNow: sorry, yes, the external speaker (connected
to the headphone jack) works fine on another machine.
[22:48] <zykotick9> benzipperer, do the headphone not work? or do they
not turn the speakers off?
[22:49] <supNow> benzipperer: generally in a laptop the headphone jack
trips the speakers off
[22:49] <benzipperer> zykotick9: when I plug into the headphone jack I
get no output to headphones and no output to speakers. So the speaker
sound is turned off.
[22:49] <supNow> benzipperer: have you tried other headphones?
[22:50] <mneptok> benzipperer: check the mixer levels and make sure the
'phones jack is not muted or low
[22:50] <zykotick9> benzipperer, if the speakers turn off automatically
when you plug the headphones in - you really need to check that the
headphone are not muted, or turned down!
[22:50] <linxeh> and check that alsa hasnt done its usual trick of being
utterly wacky on anything but the original developers computers
[22:50] <benzipperer> mneptok: that may be the problem. unforutnately I
can't find any options in either alsamixer or sound preferences for
headphone jack
[22:50] <zykotick9> mneptok, +1
[22:51] <supNow> lmao @ linxeh
[22:51] <linxeh> mneptok: it's likely to be called something else, like
"door bell output"
[22:51] <benzipperer> zykotick9: how do I check the muting or levels of
the headphone?
[22:51] <linxeh> mneptok: or "subwoofer"
[22:51] <supNow> rofl
[22:51] <mneptok> linxeh: uhhhh .... wha'?
[22:51] <mneptok> linxeh: please try to follow along.
[22:51] <supNow> right click your sound icon and click prefrences
[22:52] <linxeh> oops sorry wrong guy :)
[22:52] <benzipperer> supNow: OK. now what do I look for?
[22:52] <mneptok> linxeh: the person you *want* to address may be
labelled "doorbell" or "subwoofer"
[22:53] <linxeh> mneptok: not at all, it was benzipperer. I was
suggesting that most distros, ubuntu included, frequently end up with
alsa devices misconfigured such that the headphones appear as the
"subwoofer" output, or the "doorbell" output.
[22:53] <supNow> benzipperer:
[22:54] <dirty-harry> hi, is it possible to provide only access to
external drives e.g. usb-flash for open/save dialog for kioskmode
[22:55] <Masken{> I'm looking for a command-line program for sending
email via SMTP, that doesn't exit until the mail is actually sent.
[22:56] <adamkex> what package is the panel with, "File, Edit, View, etc"
which is on the top like a Mac?
[22:56] <melhuishj> Would anyone be willing to help me with an ssh issue?
[22:57] <benzipperer> supNow: thanks. I see the headphones in ALSA
mixer.. they are up at 100.
[22:57] <benzipperer> supNow: I also see in sound preferences -> output -
> connector, an option for analog headphones.. when I select that the
internal speaker turns off. I still get no output to headphones.
[22:59] <benzipperer> supNow: I notice if that I'm listening to the
headphones while I plug them into the laptop I get a small, initial burst
of sound, but then nothing.
[22:59] <supNow> benzipperer: I wouldn't be able to technically help
furthur, but it sounds like hardware (headphones) rather than the alsa
mixer being it works when the headphones are unplugged.
[22:59] <benzipperer> supNow: so I guess I'm getting some initial burst
of output to headphones but it disappears. kind of weird.

[23:01] <melhuishj> michael_p, yeah, I did it once, but it wasn't pretty
[23:01] <benzipperer> supNow: OK, what you say makes sense except that
this worked yesterday with 10.04 and now not 11.04. I will try to find
another external cable/set of headphones to see if that coincidentally is
now incompatible.
[23:02] <melhuishj> miraenvigado, and they would be?

[23:03] <miraenvigado> in xubuntu 10.04
[23:03] <melhuishj> miraenvigado, does KDE not have a printer manager?
[23:04] <benzipperer> supNow: clean install.
[23:04] <miraenvigado> i dont know
[23:04] <supNow> benzipperer: strange, I experienced sound issues myself
after an upgrade but worked fine on same system with clean install
[23:05] <miraenvigado> i tried to find it but i didnt find anything
[23:05] <supNow> benzipperer: I would go back to hardware or wait for
someone better knowledged
[23:05] <benzipperer> supNow: well, I really appreciate your help,
[23:05] <supNow> np! :)
[23:06] <melhuishj> See if you can find this: Application Launcher ->

[23:06] <melhuishj> I'm not sure because I don't use KDE though
[23:07] <miraenvigado> i could

[23:08] <miraenvigado> and what else
[23:09] <michael_p> melhuishj what did you do to uninstall gnome
[23:09] <benzipperer> supNow: one additional note that I'm not sure
matters: when I have internal speaker sound, and then plug in headphones,
I get no sound (either through headphones or internal speaker) but the
alsamixer levels don't visibly change. when I select Analog Headphones in
unity sound preferences -> output ->connector , the alsamixer "Front"
levels get muted (and still no audible sound anywhere).

after all and I believe Xubuntu does too, but I'm not positive

computers running 11.04. I can navigate the shared folders in nautilus,

to mount windows share.   In the terminal, "smbclient
// --no-pass" returns "tree connect failed:
NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME". Anyone else having a similar condition?
[23:19] <Masken{> Found it:
[23:19] <melhuishj> michael_p, try this: apt-get remove gnome gnome-utils
gnome-core gnome-desktop-data gnome-desktop-environment
[23:19] <melhuishj> But before you do, make sure KDE is up and running
[23:19] <melhuishj> Because that probably will remove gnome entirely
[23:20] <melhuishj> On that note, why not just keep them both?
[23:21] <luc_> hi can anybody tell me how to mount a iso file with gmount
[23:21] <miraenvigado> <melhuishj how can i know if kde is running?
[23:23] <melhuishj> You should be able to log out and then select KDE as
your DE, if that works then you're ok. If not, you need to make sure KDE
is installed before you remove gnome, otherwise you may be stuck in the
lovely world of command line interface only
[23:25] <michael_p> thats ok i need to get use to comands mirgrating from
[23:26] <melhuishj> Yeah, but theres a difference between getting used to
them and being stuck in them. If KDE is in fact installed, then you
should be ok to execute the above command

punch the screen as opposed to person next to me
[23:27] <melhuishj> Indeed, and I suggested that earlier, but since he

[23:56] <Dice-Man> how to make my ssh server availaible over the internet
[23:56] <jrib> !ssh | Dice-Man
[23:56] <ubottu> Dice-Man: SSH is the Secure SHell protocol, see:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH for client usage. PuTTY is an SSH
client for Windows; see:
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ for it's homepage. See
also !scp (Secure CoPy) and !sshd (Secure SHell Daemon)
[23:56] <Dice-Man> jrib: thanks a lot but i already saw these pages
[23:57] <jrib> Dice-Man: what is your question?
[23:57] <agoole22> hi, sometimes my ubuntu stops registering click
actions from my touchpad
[23:57] <agoole22> how can I look into this ?
[23:57] <Pici> Dice-Man: just forward port 22 from your router to the
server running ssh.
[23:57] <Dice-Man> Pici: how to do this ?
[23:57] <Dice-Man> Pici: i don't really grasp what port forwarding is, i
think i need some scheme
[23:57] <Guest87731> usr13 i closed synaptic manage and then the code
[23:58] <Pici> Dice-Man: Its not really within the scope of this channel,
but you may want to take a look at http://portforward.com
[23:58] <mitchell> Any ideas on how to copy over my Ubuntu data to a new
partition without re-installing?

open office is still in english and the isntallationw as very fast i dont
think it worked
[23:59] <Ziber> yeats: I put that value in, and yet the error still
exists. And doesnt seem to recognize that I've updated it.
