Glad1While attempting to enable Lojban as a language, I checked the 'Support' checkbox for Lojban in Language Support. When I clicked 'OK,' then re-opened it, the checkbox had a line in it (rather than a check mark), and I am unable to set it as the default language. I have tried this all several times and have been unable to find any documentation online. Does anyone have any Ideas that may be able to help?00:12
onrekwyjibo, dunno if there's one readily made, but it wouldn't be that hard to just dump those off the character rom, if you know what you're doing. they're bitmaps, after all.00:12

deroAnd then my icons disappear and I can't access my home folder00:18
magnetronDavidCanarias→ you need a tool to rip, just plain libdvdcss2 will not help. try thoggen or dvdrip or any of the other fine dvdripping tools in the repos00:19

deroDavidCanaris If I make a new admin account will I still have access to all my files on this user? Sorry I'm a n00b to ubuntu00:24
smil3ybloodscore>  if its not there, then search in synaptic for restricted drivers for your kernel which can be told by uname -a in a terminal00:24
bloodscorei get "While this driver itself is free software, it relies on proprietary firmware which cannot be legally shipped with the operating system. Your hardware will not work without the firmware."00:24
DavidCanariasdero: No you won't have access to the files of another user. The reason I suggested it is that there is an error. By creating another user then your desktop may go back to normal and the other user at the same time. At least it did for me. Give it a try. Good luck00:25
smil3ybloodscore>  yeah, enable it, its just telling you ubuntu doesnt maintain the driver so if theres bugs your out of luck00:25

the_lost_onesudo: timestamp too far in the future: Jun 17 08:17:55 200601:29
the_lost_one2. Use Adjust Date & Time to set the date/time to the sudo timestamp or later.01:29

eeliotthekingcan anyone help me? im having a couple of problems with GRUB02:23
dkulchenkoThank god predator363 left02:23
dman777CapTech, ok, now i am getting somewhere thanx. i thought locate was an alias/variable for slocate?02:23
Fezzleror nvidia-linux-x86-100.14.19.pkg1.tar02:24
alesanLjL: ok I will leave the channel before you ban me also, because I ask "taboo" questions02:24
CapTechdman777: It is, you could do: slocate rc02:24
jken146Fezzler: the nvidia-glx-legacy package?  does that work?02:24
CapTechdman777: But the -u is only used to build a database.  As such, the -e will only work to eliminate directories when building it, not while searching it.02:24
FezzlerI need that specific one02:25

samferryHello, CapTech :)02:25
CapTechdman777: Nope.  When you updatedb, it will update the db using the last settings you used when you ran the slocate -u command.02:26

Fezzlerit may be on my system.  how do i find it?02:27
CapTechdman777: technically slocate is a "security" enhanced version, however, I've never searched using slocate, I only build the DB's with it.02:27
eeliotthekingand im somewhat new to ubuntu still02:27
CapTechdman777: To each his own.02:27
kunwon1Pulpie_inlove, what?02:28
CapTechdman777: You can search with either.02:28
bloodscoreubuntu restricted extras are the codecs that it asked for when i tried to play a song at first, right?02:28

Mowkand choose what linux one i wanted to use at the time, say if i had 3 on the same one.02:39
After_MathMowk, Bios02:39
jken146Mowk: install the bootloader to the first partition of that drive.  Then look in your BIOS settings to allow USB boot.02:39
MowkWhich bootloader.02:40
jken146Mowk: GRUB (bootloader) should automagically make a list of all the OSs installed.02:40
MowkThannks boss;)02:40
jken146Mowk: The process of how to do this differs between distros02:40
jken146MOwk: but for the popular ones it's quite easy and automatic(ish)02:41

Flannelpredator363: This?  Perhaps.  But Just keep that bug in your bookmarks or whatever and then ask about it tomorrow.04:17
GMWeezelMTecknology: yeah, that's probably what i will end up doing. thanks. i was trying to think of how to do it with cron but it never dawned on me to check to see if the screensaver was running. too much time on windows. anyway, thanks a lot.04:17

GMWeezelmowk: why would you want to do such a thing?04:17
MTecknologyMowk: for more help, you should go to ##windows. You're just trying to restore the vista mbr04:17

e-frameMowk: if u want to dual boot, we'll help. but if u want to get rid of ubuntu, u should gtfu04:18
Flannelpredator363: Alright, now we need to blacklist that module.  We do it by editing: sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist04:18

predator363flannel: sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist then what?04:19
predator363flannel: oh sorry hold on04:19
GMWeezelMTecknology: well, i ask because i always like to understand why people want to uninstall ubuntu. helps me with converting more people. also, ive had people phrase questiosn poorly and not really want to uninstall ubuntu but rearrange their boot settings, things like that.04:19
bubuntuis there a specific room for ubuntu gaming?04:19
MTecknologyMowk: then read above about grub. I'd suggest getting everything working with grub since it's more flexible04:19

MTecknologyfirst link04:21
e-framei've told ya all04:21
MTecknologyMowk: but you should install /boot to your main hard drive04:21
GMWeezelMTecknology: no, im not the linux-elitist type and if i were i would probably be criticizing him for using "winbuntu." not my style; everyone has preferences, needs. also, i just realized gnome-screensaver is a daemon and there.fore always runnings so ive hit a wall for using cron.04:21
Mowkim confuzed:(04:22
MTecknologythe reason you're getting an error (most likely) is that you have /boot on a different drive and it's not being seen. /boot needs to be read to boot anything.04:22
predator363flannel: still no wifi04:22
GMWeezelMTecknology: ok, think i just figured out the fix-- check to see if it's sleeping or active.04:22
e-framemowk, you want a dualboot or what?04:22
predator363flannel: but now i have a thing that sais i have a bunch of updates04:23
MTecknologye-frame: ya he does - but he wants ubuntu on an external drive04:23
MowkI want to jsut get so i have vista working normally again then start over04:23
MTecknologyso /boot needs to exist on the first drive04:23
e-frameMTecknology: no problem, just plug and tweak the grub, according to device map / partition table04:23
MTecknologyMowk: then use the vista install cd and it has an option right away to fix problems with booting04:23
Mowkkk04:24
Flannelpredator363: right, those are backports, not supported (and this is why I didn't want to enable backports).  Unfortunately, I think we'll have to sit tight until tomorrow.04:24
predator363flannel: it sais its doing a distro upgrade but it sais it's upgrading to hardy. how can hardy upgrade to hardy?04:24

jointmanXubuntu is so moody. There are days when it reads my router just fine, and other times it just doesn't work. But when I use Windows XP it works just fine. What the heck's the problem?  Why does something so simple as connecting to the internet such a hassle?09:03
misteralexanderI'm wondering if anyone knows how to "reboot" my sound system, in Ubuntu.  Every once-in-awhile audio in Amarok & VLC will just stop.  The only solution (thus far) is to reboot my laptop.  Does anyone have a better, quicker solution?09:03
mgolischrobertw__: no unless you install libflashsupport flash plugin allways tries to use alsa directly09:03
mgolischrobertw__: sure you haz no pulse?09:03

pureianRG, is any way to refresh my desktop?09:04
robertw__mgo: it either wasn't, or went way when I installed XFCE and xubuntu-defaults09:04
ianRGpure: xserver restart closes the running applications afaik09:05
ianRGpure: and there's no way to reopen them. unless they were background processes, you've lost your unsaved work.09:05
ianRGpure: merely speaking from experience here, i`m not fundi09:06
magnetronhi, i was wondering if there are any tools designed to for making you own "services". something that can restart a software if it disconnects09:06
mgolischrobertw__: if you dont use pulse, it might just be that the alsa device is blocked by something elese09:06
mgolischelse09:06
pureim newbe, so i guess is like the way right click+refresh on windws09:07

koshar1misteralexander you could prolly rmmod and then modprobe your osund module09:11

robertw__removing it gets me sound in flash again09:12
koshar1misteralexander if you know the name of the module your sound hardware loads, (it will be listed if you run lsmod) you can unload that module/ rmmod and then reload the module /modprobe09:13

ActionParsnip1_saw: it may be on a different repo you dont have10:35
ikoniaBruteFrce it is not obvious your host is x86 0- hence why I was asking10:35
Ohmu_ikonia: I think its needed.  Otherwise he will think it is something personal.  If he hears it from 3 places he may learn.  I don't feed trolls.  Thats my last word on the topic.10:35
hischildBruteFrce, the problem is that your target system isn't ubuntu specific. The host system is of no concern, you could even run windows for it10:35
ikoniaBruteFrce: this is beyond the scope of this channel, so I rquest you drop the topic10:35

ActionParsnip1binMonkey: if you put that in a script in /usr/bin you can call it anytime you like10:36

milligan_I'm using vacation.pl for my postfix installation. The problem is that the autoreply cache is never emptied it seems. This implies that an autoresponse is only sent to a user once. How can I prevent this from happening, and clear old cache etc ?10:37

dusty_Hey guys I have a Mobile Broadband USB stick (E160 HSDPA USB Stick).   It works fine in windows, but under ubuntu nothing happens.  I have scoured the internet and forums for answers and it should be configurable from network manager, I cannot seem to do it in there.  I am running Ubuntu 8.04 any ideas how to get this to work ?10:37
ikoniamilligan_: what are you using to enable/disable the script10:38
ActionParsnip1dusty_: what does lsusb say?10:38
milligan_ikonia, postfix checks the vacation table upon receiving email.10:38
ikoniamilligan_: so you've enabled it by default10:38
dusty_ActionParsnip1, I will have to unplug it from here ( and disconnect ) then plug it into my ubuntu machine, while i do that is there anything else you would like me to run ?10:39
milligan_ikonia, I don't follow. Postfix will send the email to the perl script, if the user has an active vacation status.10:39
ActionParsnip1dusty_: use pastebin for the output10:39
ikoniamilligan_: yes, but how is teh active status being set10:39
ActionParsnip1dusty_: lsusb and lspci10:39
milligan_ikonia, through postfixadmin... a webbased interface.10:39
ikoniamilligan_: the reason I asked is that I've seen teh cache not get cleared when a user removes the status but it doesn't actually remove it10:40

heath|OTGanyone know how to restart the usb subsystem ?10:53

DVS01oh what you got is a .tar.gz file, which you could have figured out using the 'file' command i mentioned previously11:00

Ohmu_roxan: how to find one?  sorry for being hopeless but I'm a bit lost here.11:01
debasys  11:01
DVS01daren: you can extract the file using 'tar -zxvf filename' and then go into the subdirectory that's created, and compile the source. usually the steps are: ./configure ; make ; sudo make install11:01
DVS01however...11:01
idefixcamorama webcam viewer but also jin chess player11:01
ljsoftnetTheFiller, ah ok11:01
roxanOhmu_, area 3 machines ubuntu?11:01
DVS01each step has to work properly, so its better to say ./configure && make && sudo make install11:01
DVS01thats the simplest way of doing it, but each package should have its own instructions11:01
ActionParsnip1TheFiller: well if you cant ping your router you have a bad ip / subnet, the routers port is down, the router is off, the cable has a break or the computers interface is down11:01

idefixwhat happens when you see a 'starting-up-indication' in your panel?11:18
roxankoshar1, its very easy11:18
e-frameActionParsnip1: pidgin cannot connect with the modem11:18
nnullidefix¬ usually means something is starting up.11:19
roxankoshar1, , edit, background and preferences11:19
idefixso what happens and what does not when that just goes away after a while?11:19

MaximB1 I have adsl 5/512 connection, and it disconnects at least 1 time a day, the command "sudo /etc/networking restart" doesn't help at all, restarting the router sometimes helps, but all I can do is restart ubuntu. what can I do ?11:19
e-frameActionParsnip1: i have to untick "work offline" in firefox11:19
Sammydear all how to check my USB modem?? please11:19
roxanMaximB1, are you sure its ubuntu's fault?11:19

nnullidefix¬ the last thing you said was in too much of a riddle for me to understand11:20
idefixwell, it just goes away after a while, that indication11:20
e-frameActionParsnip1: what hack u gave ?11:20
ActionParsnip1e-frame: you need to trigger the modem to dial before you do anything11:20
bahaa2008_i want to move from wubi installtion to real installtion11:20
nnullwhat does it say is starting up11:20
MaximB1roxan:  no, but the command sudo /etc/networking restart should have allowed my connection to go up again without restarting ubuntu, like "service network restart" works in redhat11:20
idefixnnull, so then what is wrong? how can I debug?11:20

roxanMaximB1, whats the error?11:22

heath|OTGMaximB1, it sounds to me like your routing table is getting messed up...11:22
MaximB1roxan:  no errors, I just can't ping to nothing , not by ip and not by name11:23
nnullidefix¬ yea its worth the whole 1second it takes to install imo.11:23
e-frameActionParsnip1: the modem works, i can ping anywhere, but to browse, i have to untick the "work offline" in firefox, because firefox always run in "offline mode".11:23

MaximB1no11:23

ubottusawyer_: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu!11:53
sawyer_my brother just moved to ubuntu from windows (congrats!) but he's having trouble11:53
sawyer_basically we have a Western Digital usb hard disk11:53
sawyer_that it recognized and mounted automatically (through HAL, i'm guessing)11:53
sawyer_but suddenly today it won't do it11:53
sawyer_it says it cannot mount the volume11:53
sawyer_because he's not superuser11:54
AdvoWorkhi there, just installed wine, i can get to drive_c from the terminal, but not the file browser, its not listing .wine in my home/user dir, any ideas please?11:54
zirodaysawyer_: can you pastebin the exact error message please11:54
e-frame!wine11:54
ubottuWINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine for more information, and see !AppDB for application compatibility.11:54
sawyer_now, this happened with an SD card but i wrote him a shell script that mounts it and put it in the netbook remix interface as a button in the menu11:54
Sammydear thanks for help me. I have to go. bye all see ya11:54
roxanAdvoWork, because its hidden folder11:54

AdvoWorkcool, thankyou11:55
roxanAdvoWork, cool indeed11:55
greensuni am trying to open a a network folder with a $ sigin how do i do that11:55
sawyer_ziroday, http://pastebin.ca/123264011:56
sawyer_i've read online that its caused because the HAL doesn't recognize it or something - which is weird since it at least did it yesterday11:56
balrogroxan: thank you for showing me those, but none of those addressed my problem.  do you have anything else that i can try?11:57
zirodaysawyer_: that link doesn't seem to be working could you try a different pastebin site please. I will also need the output of sudo fdisk -l when the drive is plugged in as well as its model11:57
sawyer_ziroday, my brother took out the SD card and now the hard disk is recognized again and automatically mounted11:58
coaxCan any of you point me in the way of some decent software to get access point functionallity, it needs to do at least WPA1 for encryption11:58
zirodaysawyer_: that is most odd11:58
sawyer_i think the problem starts with the SD card...11:58
roxan!sound | balrog11:58
ubottubalrog: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP311:58
zirodaysawyer_: can you pastebin the copy of your shell script please?11:58
zirodayroxan: I gave balrog those links before11:59
sawyer_it's just "mount /dev/sdb1 /media/sdcard"11:59
sawyer_er... gksudo mount... whatever11:59
coaxsawyer_, i once had a problem booting with an SD card, due to the fact that the SD-card was detected as sda and the HD as sdb...11:59
zirodaysawyer_: okay, can you plugin both items, pastebin the output sudo fdisk -l11:59
indian_munnda!parallels11:59
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about parallels11:59
sawyer_coax, the hard disk here (eee pc) is a solid state, it's sda, the sdcard is recognized as sdb11:59
zirodaysawyer_: and not run your script12:00
roxanziroday, i was practiciing :P12:00
sawyer_not mount any of them?12:00
sawyer_which order do you want them?12:00
zirodaysawyer_: if they automount thats fine, any order will do12:00
sawyer_okay...12:00
sawyer_sd card goes first12:00
coaxsawyer_, i dit'nt catch all the conversation... i just thourght it was the same problem...12:00
sawyer_holy shit it mounted it12:00
sawyer_err.. sorry for swearing12:01
indian_munndacan any one tell me how do i coinfigure parallels according to my running kernel???12:01
roxandoes anyone know how to disable screen blinking12:01
ziroday!language | sawyer_12:01
ubottusawyer_: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family friendly.12:01
sawyer_yeah sorry12:01

ubotturoxan please read this: Please investigate with me only with "/msg ubottu Bot" or in #ubuntu-bots.  Search for factoids with "/msg ubottu !search factoid".12:01
sawyer_ziroday, this is weird12:02
magnetronhi, i'm trying to set my eth0 speed to 100 but it won't change from 10 Mbps when using mii-tool or ethtool. since i have a 100/10 internet connection, this is  a loss to me. need advice12:02
sawyer_i think i'm starting to grasp what's going on here12:02
zirodaysawyer_: care to explain12:03
sawyer_yeah sure, sorry12:03
sawyer_if i enter the SD card first it recognizes12:03
sawyer_then the HD (elements), it doesn't12:03
sawyer_but12:03
sawyer_if i switch the order (first Elemented - the HD), then the SD card - it shows the elements but not the SD12:03
sawyer_which means that it recognizes the first but not the second - whatever it may be12:04
zirodaysawyer_: that is odd, please try to keep your responses on one line. Did you manage to pastebin the output of sudo fdisk -l12:04
sawyer_yeah okay i'll do that now12:04
indian_munndamagnetron: i think it is not in your control it can only be done from the ISP's end12:04
balrogwell, so much for sound tonight.  thanks for your help roxan.12:05
magnetronindian_munnda→ i'm speaking of the mode used in my NIC. auto-negotiation is disabled.12:05
sawyer_ziroday, fdisk -l what?12:05
sawyer_each one?12:06
roxanmagnetron, i dont think you have more than 10mpbs internet connection?12:06
roxan.12:06
zirodaysawyer_: no, you just need to type in sudo fdisk -l and pastebin the output12:06
zambai want to duplicate my whole system over to new drive.. how can i do this? and especially the part about grub12:06
zirodaysawyer_: note the sudo at the front12:06
stankilsmagnetron; your ethernet card says it supports 100 in ethtool output?12:06
WDCIs there a command to see how big a file is?12:06
zambaWDC: 'du'12:06
magnetronrodimus→ i have a 100Mbps internet connection12:06
ActionParsnip1WDC: do /path/to/file12:06
magnetronstankils→ yes12:07
zirodayzamba: take a look at a program called clonezilla12:07
DanskmandJim_p - are you there ?12:07
WDCzamba: ActionParsnip1 Thanks!12:07
ActionParsnip1WDC: du -h is better (-h == human readable)12:07
magnetronroxan→ i have a 100Mbps internet connection12:07
WDCActionParsnip1:thanks12:07
lliurexlliurex12:07
zambaziroday: not a package in ubuntu repo?12:07
zambaziroday: ah, i see what it is and does12:08
roxanmagnetron, that must be your network speed12:08
zirodayzamba: yes basically its an open source version of norton ghost12:09
magnetronroxan→ no, i pay for 100Mbps downstream12:09
zambaziroday: hm, ok..12:09
idefixhave you used that word 'lother' I suggested to add to English language the other day?12:09
jron_roxan: just wanted to let you know that my bridge is working again. I removed network-manager (or network-admin) whatever that POS is called. :P added my etho settings and all is well.12:09
zambais it recommended to run swap off a ssd?12:09
ziroday!offtopic > idefix12:09
ubottuidefix, please see my private message12:09
jron_network-manager should really work off the config files instead of trying to take things over. it just creates confusion.12:09
roxanjron_, nice will it work after the reboot then?12:09
roxanmagnetron, you might not be getting a 100mbps from other end too.12:10
jron_roxan: i'll find out in min. brb =)12:10
magnetronroxan→ exactly, but my CARD is set to 10Mbps12:10
roxanmagnetron, try calling your isp too12:10
roxanmagnetron, what is the medium of your internet?12:10
TheFillerActionParsnip1: Whoa, it works now, after I have uninstalled the network manager... I guess it messed up with my network configuration12:11
jaymhelp... running mplayer or totem on a quicktime video it opens and i get no error but video never starts12:11
magnetronroxan→ but the problem is on my end. in the network card. this is a straight 100base-Tx to the apartment, fiber to the house12:11
zirodayzamba: you might want to read this regarding swap http://wiki.eeeuser.com/ssd_write_limit12:11
=== FrozenFire_ is now known as FrozenFire
sawyer_ziroday, http://pastebin.com/d24a71c5012:11
jaymi can also move videos position within its timeframe and i see that part of the clip but it never continues12:11
ActionParsnip1TheFiller: you could use another like wifi-radar maybe12:12
roxanmagnetron, media converter could be problem too12:12
magnetronroxan→ it's just a cable, no converters or hubs or routers12:12
emorrishi, is there a way to get commands to run on shutdown? Like /etc/rc.local, but for shutdown12:12
roxanwell you need a media converter between fiber and ethernet12:12
roxanemorris, yes12:12
magnetronroxan→ but i don't have fiber to my apartment. it's 100Base-Tx , that is copper!12:13
ActionParsnip1emorris: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=43634612:13
roxanmagnetron, where do you get that copper from12:13
magnetronroxan→ it's an outlet in my apartment. my ISP put it there.12:13
ActionParsnip1emorris: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/1288412:13
jron_roxan: still working. =) For anyone having issues with their "advanced" network config, just uninstall network-manager. =)12:13
jaymi have tried running mplayer and totem from commandline as well no errors12:14
indian_munndamagnetron: i have mostly seen at homes that the connection which are not having routers, hubs etc they only get 10mbps but in vice versa case they get 100 mbps12:14
ActionParsnip1magnetron: your modem connects to that12:14
ogzyhow can i run a script at the gnome desktop startup, i am looking for the settings file not the system->preferences->session thing, i want to globally set a script that will run for every user when they initialize the desktop12:14
zirodaysawyer_: thanks12:14
jron_magnetron: what trouble are you having?12:14
emorrisActionParsnip1: ok, thanks, I'll have a look at them12:14
ActionParsnip1!startup | ogzy12:14
ubottuogzy: To add programs to start up when you log into your Gnome session go to System>Preferences>Sessions and use the Startup Programs tab. For more information, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddingProgramToSessionStartup - See !boot for starting non-interactive programs at boot12:14
magnetronActionParsnip1→ no, i have no modem. i don't need one, since i have a 100base-tx into my home12:15
sawyer_ziroday, thank you, for assisting me :)12:15
ActionParsnip1magnetron: then grab a cable modem and put that line in the wan port12:15
zirodaysawyer_: okay both drives are detected, do icons for them appear on in nautilus?12:15
zambaziroday: page not loading..12:15
zirodaysawyer_: no problem :)12:15
roxanmagnetron, they auto negotiate . your end with the other one.12:15
magnetronActionParsnip1→ you have no clue12:15
ogzyActionParsnip1, you didn't read what i wrote12:16
magnetronroxan→ the first thing i said was that i already tried that12:16
roxanmagnetron, your end will say lets work on 100 and if the other end agres then they will12:16
zirodayzamba: ah, lemme see if I can find another link12:16
zambaziroday: i see 2.6.27 has support for the ubifs filesystem.. could this be something to look into?12:17
ActionParsnip1ogzy: for all users?12:17
sawyer_ziroday, yes, an icon for each driver.12:17
zirodayzamba: basically the root of the matter was that you shouldn't have swap, ask in #eeepc for more in depth discussion12:17
Enissayhey, i want to upgrade VLC to 0.9 but in synaptic i found just the 0.8.6!!!! how can i do it please?12:17
magnetronjron_→ my NIC won't go into 100Mbps mode, it just chooses 10Mbps half duplex. neither mii-tool or ethtool can change it to 100, neither will they enable auto-negotiation12:17
zirodaysawyer_: and you can click on them and they mount just fine?12:17
sawyer_the SD card i can. the Elements hard disk i can't.12:17
ogzyActionParsnip1, yes is there any settings of Gnome that i can set startup programs globally?12:18
zirodaysawyer_: so when you click on it nothing opens up?12:18
magnetronroxan→ i already told you that auto-negotiation can't be enabled. that is my problem12:18
sawyer_ziroday, exactly.12:18
zirodaysawyer_: does a folder appear in /media for it?12:19
ActionParsnip1ogzy: http://ubuntu.wordpress.com/2005/09/07/adding-a-startup-script-to-be-run-at-bootup/12:19
zambaziroday: i'm rarely ever using my swap on this machine anyway, so12:19
zirodayzamba: don't get a swap partition :)12:20
LilinallteHi. I can double-click a .bin file in XNC to execute it, but not from the 'normal' filemanager. What's an easy way to create a desktop icon to this .bin file, so that i can open/run it from the desktop?12:20
sawyer_ziroday, now i've noticed something. /media/disk is usually where it mounts the Elements. and it appears, but the content is of SD card. so it seems like that's where it mounted the SD card.12:20
zambagood, good12:20
sawyer_perhaps that12:20
ogzyActionParsnip1, but update-rc.d makes the scripts run with root privilidges. I need to run it as a user12:20
sawyer_.. perhaps that's why it couldn't mount the Elements HD?12:20
ActionParsnip1ogzy: hmmm12:20
zirodaysawyer_: it should then mount it to /media/disk2 or something similar. Try deleting both drivers12:21
zirodaysawyer_: I mean the /media/disk folder12:21
sawyer_ziroday, i should umount it first though, right?12:22
ActionParsnip1ogzy: how many users do you have, a per-user basis may be needed12:22
jokeusa!port_forwarding12:22
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about port_forwarding12:22
jokeusameh12:22
ActionParsnip1ogzy: i think you can edit the default profile somehow so all future users will get the setting12:22
jokeusa!squid12:22
ubottusquid is a caching proxy for the Web.  See: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SquidGuard  See: http://www.squid-cache.org12:22
ogzyActionParsnip1, so where if this profile?12:22
ActionParsnip1jokeusa: read your routers manual12:22
ActionParsnip1ogzy: i believe its /etc/skel12:23
jokeusaActionParsnip - there is no router...12:23
Lilinallte!nat12:23
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about nat12:23
Lilinallteyou need a router or routing firewall to do nat:)12:23
sawyer_ziroday, when i "eject"ed the SD card (which was mounted to /media/disk), it removed the /media/disk folder.12:23
ActionParsnip1jokeusa: so how do you plan to portforward?12:23
jokeusaI want to forward traffic to squid3 installed on the same machine.12:24
jokeusa(which doesnt work as a router btw, stand alone machine)12:24
bahaa2008_guys i want to move wubi partations to real partations12:24
e-frame!wubi > bahaa2008_12:25
ubottubahaa2008_, please see my private message12:25
ogzyActionParsnip1, so if i put my script to /etc/skel/.profile will it run for every run time as a user ?12:25
ActionParsnip1bahaa2008_: you could create iso's of the partitions then write them to real partitions in a live environment12:25
ActionParsnip1ogzy: for every future user when they pick up the skel profile12:25
e-framebahaa2008_: can do it with lvpm12:25
bahaa2008_ok12:26
ogzyActionParsnip1, picking up the skel profile? so do they ned to open terminal ?12:26
bahaa2008_but how to use ubuntu after that12:26
ActionParsnip1ogzy: no, when a user first logs in they get a default profile created. This is a copy of the skel profile12:26
bahaa2008_how to mount the partions again12:26
ActionParsnip1!mount | bahaa2008_12:27
ubottubahaa2008_: For help with partitioning a new install see: https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/switching/installing-partitioning.html - For partitioning programs see !GParted or !QTParted - Other partitioning topics include !fstab !home and !swap12:27
bahaa2008_or it'll be mounted automatic ?12:27
ogzyActionParsnip1, ok will try it and also this one http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/5012:27
ogzyActionParsnip1, /etc/X11/Xsession.d can be a right place to put the script12:27
StasOnneed help! How to configure VPN in ubuntu 6.06?12:28

hischildfew, 2007 and 2008 may be very different. You will probably have to install both.12:41
ikoniarocks what are you talking about ?12:41
hischildSlart, F-3000 i recommend using recovery mode and use a graphical view from there. Then change the settings. Slart your opinion please.12:41

ikoniaknut_ it's a plain text file - what are you not certain about12:43
hotking?12:43

fewhischild, yes it probably would work if synaptic would install it. but it won't because it wants to install texlive-2007 (which will probably overwrite my texlive-2008) and my question i: how do i make it install kile while ignore the dependency12:45
knut_ActionParsnip1: whats the command?12:45
ubottuknut_: pastebin is a service to post multiple-lined texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic)12:45
ubottuStasOn: From more information on vpn please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Gaming_VPN_Using_PPTPD12:45
ActionParsnip1knut_: open /etc/fstab and use pastebin to give us the text12:46
SlartF-3000: it isn't possible for you to create a starting user with a very international username and password? (only a-z and so on) and then try to create another user with the username/password you really want?12:46
hischildfew, you can probably dl the .deb yourself and force it to install while skipping all deps .... but i doubt that'll work ...12:46
StasOnthnx12:46
paul68ActionParsnip1: for a second I thought that ubottu was in lunch break :-)12:46

ubottuCarrera: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP312:47
