sagredoikonia that won't do anything00:10
ikoniasagredo: why ?00:10
theyetiflpwch: I didn't want to answer anyway.  And ummmmmmm, it tells you some sort of indication?  Heck if I know.  it's an indicator applet but what it is indicating is beyond me00:10
stepanstasflpwch: when i was out of the country, someone tried to install Kubuntu over the Ubuntu.  They have not recovered the files thought, I am hoping I can do that.00:10
sagredoikonia I believe the issue lies in the fact that the OS is running off the CD, not off of memeory thus I'm not able to add new packages on the fly00:10
qcjntestbottu, i didn't put the ending /, that is what i think i should have put00:10
sagredodo you understand?00:10
edbiantrble: One of the folders in /media contains your new harddrive partition, which is it?00:10
ikoniasagredo: that's wrong00:10

sagredoikonia alright what do you want to try00:10
ikoniasagredo: you can add packages to the livecd session as it's stored in memory00:10
flpwchstepanstas: i'm going to assume you've lost the headers to the files00:10
trbleedbian:  i named it backup00:11
flpwchthey *might* still be there,00:11
sagredoikonia the cursor blinks at your command, what would you suggest?00:11
trbleedbian: so in the list its backup along with the others00:11
ikoniasagredo: there is a possability you may not have enough ram to uncompress/run it but that's very unlikley00:11
edbiantrble: Awesome! so /media/backup correct?  go to /media in a terminal.  Do you know how to do that?00:11
qcjntestbottu, cause the destination folder is /media/hdmusique   , and i've put it like that00:11
sagredoikonia this laptop has over a GByte00:11
ikoniasagredo: remove the package file from the cache directory and then re-get it00:11
flpwchif the install was canceled, you the drive is still written, sort of like when you empty the recycle bin the files still exist, stepanstas00:11
sagredoikonia apt-get purge?00:11

testbottuqcjn: yes i think you're right00:12
flpwchthere's software that recovers those files, but i can't think of the names. you might try googling for a live cd with some file recovery software.00:12
edbiansudo (give you root power) chown (changes the owner of a file) trble (you) /media/backup (the folder)00:12
flpwchthere is a chance, though stepanstas that its lost for good00:13
edbiantrble: So the whole thing is "sudo chown trble /media/backup"00:13

hacker07hey I have a question. What are the dangers of running as root as a normal user01:54
Flannelhacker07: What do you mean?01:54
hacker07if I am running as root all the time is it bad?01:54
cabreyhacker07, damage to your system & systemwide malicious software01:55
Flannelhacker07: It is bad.  You shouldn't be doing it.01:55
ubottusudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE)01:55
cabreyhacker07, why do you need it?01:55
Flannelhacker07: because anything that gets executed by you can affect the whole system01:55
racecar56cabrey, it crashes my login when i set alll quality to low to see if it gets faster01:56
SteveHillHacker07: You can do some REALLY bad things as root, and if you connect over a network there is a slight possibility that someone else can do bad things for you.01:56
hacker07Idk I am using backtrack 4 which is based off of ubuntu 8.10 and I am using root on it because it is the default user01:56
cabreyracecar56, major bug, submit a bug report to wine or go to #winehq01:56
Flannelhacker07: The default Ubuntu user isn't root.  ubuntu doesn't even use the root account.01:56
Flannelhacker07: so the backtrack 4 people must've really screwed something up01:56
cabreyhacker07, that is a security system distro01:57
hacker07backtrack is a security distro01:57
cabreyFlannel, no its designed that way, but its only a live cd01:57
hacker07I am running root right now but this irc client is not... so am I doing something safe01:57
SteveHillIs backtrack used for forensics, hacker07?01:57
hacker07yeah and other pentesting stuff01:58
cabreyhacker07, but why do you insist on using root in ubuntu?01:58

Ambidextrousanyone here handy with conky? its not flattened on my desktop like it usually is, and appears above any maximized windows, which is odd considering i havent changed any of its settings in .conkyrc02:56
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about notifications02:56
carpiiambi, you changed any kde settings for that window ?02:57
carpiilike right click title bar -> advanced02:57
Ambidextrouscarpii, im on gnome, so i dont think so, i havent made any changes other than adding it to start on boot through sessions in system>prefs (8.10)02:58
denardoIs there a way to configure the notifications in Jaunty? They're hard to see on my Eee 701. I would like them to use a larger font and or stay up longer.02:58
carpiiambi, if you kill it and restart conky manhually, does it have same problem ?02:58
cabreydenardo, not yet02:59
cabreydenardo, really? wow i'm using a 900 and i can see them clearly02:59
Ambidextrouscarpii, thats solved the problem, is there any way i could have conky on boot without it hitting the same issue?03:00
carpiiim not sure, maybe its something to do with the order its being loaded ?03:00
juan-pabloi cant see youtube03:00
denardocabrey: The screen's a bit smaller on the 701. I think getting them n view with my bifocals, when I hve the Eee on my lap, takes more time than they allow.03:00
carpiii know kde has some offscreen desktop buffer, and you have to config conky to use it else you get strange effects03:01
carpiibut its been a while since io bothered with conky, so its all a bit vague03:01
juan-pablohi there03:01

Ambidextrouscarpii, my conky config is fine, its just odd that it does this on startup, but its ok mate, its not too hard to throw up a terminal when i startup :) thanks for the simple, but effective solution. im kinda stupid for not trying that first ha.03:02

usserbsmith_, yea03:13

hambeefcan someone help me03:15
texasjackjuan-pablo, go to 'synaptic' and uninstall all 'flash' stuff. Then just install the «flash» and «build-essentials» packages, NOT the «flash-installer» one...  I think that's gonna work.03:15
usserbsmith_, yea, but you'll have to do some configuration for ddclient i dunno if ubuntu will give you some sort of gui to set your usernam/domain etc. last time i did it i had to modify the ddclient script manually03:15
bsmith_bsmith: should i even use the server version or should i just use the 32bit?03:16

usserracecar56, you're buying something non-workiing, not only in ubuntu but in pretty much every other OS, as ati drops support for not so old cards, and 9800 is no longer supported03:16
usserbsmith_, ddclient will happily work on a desktop03:16
texasjackims, I think that flash is not working at all for juan-pablo.  Not in firefox, nor any other browser...03:16
racecar56usser, k thanks for the info03:16
juan-pabloepiphany is working03:16
racecar56usser, i want to find a decent video card that has support for old stuff WHILE not being cheapo like a 9200SE03:17
texasjackims, I'm wrong... Bzzzz. o.O =)03:17
juan-pablobad but works03:17
usserracecar56, buy nvidia, their drivers and support are superb03:17
texasjackjuan-pablo, strange... If works at epiphany it should works at firefox.03:17
bsmith_usser: am I able to use ddclient for LAMP, media, print, and FTP server03:17
usserracecar56, any nvidia03:17
racecar56usser, btw it -has- to be agp and i don't think nvidia won't work03:17
racecar56usser, *nvidia won't work03:17
juan-pabloit has problems between audio n video03:17
usserracecar56, why not, nvidia has still plenty of agp cards on the market03:18
juan-pablothanks guys03:18
racecar56usser, :| because what i use dosen't like nvidia03:18
racecar56usser, but i WISH.....03:18
usserbsmith_, ddclient doesnt care what services are installed all it does it makes sure that your hostname can be resolved to a real ip.03:18
juan-pablosome times go quick n some times slow03:18
usserbsmith_, so yea all those will work as long as the hostname resolves to ip properly03:18
racecar56usser, i know to stay away from the geforce 7100 (it's pci-e anyway...)03:19
juan-pablolooks that i put tooo adds on on firefox03:19
usserracecar56, what doesnt like nvidia?03:19
noxtaais there a list anywhere of the events/programs that will prompt those new little black box notifications to appear?03:19

usserracecar56, i used 5200 with no problems03:19

usserracecar56, thats interesting, just out of curiosity what things are those?03:19
bsmith_usser:  isn't there also code I need to edit to update the IP address when dyndns.com changes it?03:19

siebelI got a grub error 17 - Can anyone tell me what I have to reconfigure03:20
usserracecar56, 1998?? geez. if you can call it working, you probably wont even drivers for that, oss or not it wont make much difference03:20
racecar56usser, yeah but they ARE 3D03:20
juan-pabloyes i put a lot of ads on on firefox03:20
usserbsmith_, yes, you have to change the script so it uses your dyndns account03:20
usserbsmith_, which ddclient should tell where the script is located03:20

texasjackjuan-pablo, just «firefox» and «flash»: all sites works perfectly.  Now, uninstall this add-ons, and see if you get a better experience. If not... Just do what I said before... I'm gonna play some poker...03:23
racecar56usser, well a nvidia is ok but it -HAS- to work for things from as old as dx4 to as new as around dx7 and opengl 2.x03:23
usserbsmith_, well that depends on how strong your admin password is, what type of services you run, if your current with latest security updates etc, has nothing to do with people being able to get to your server by hostname03:23

=== rocky|_ is now known as rocky|
racecar56usser, hoping that it wont suck like a 7100, only has new support03:26

usserbsmith_, if your password is not strong enough chances are it'll be hacked in a matter of days03:26
usserracecar56, again im not sure what the problem was, did you install drivers from nvidia site for your card. what didnt work?03:27
wanderinghey guys, I am encountering alot of lag...and according to the forums that would point to my video driver. However, I am only using a generic onboard with an intel chipset. Does anyone have any suggestions?03:27

racecar56usser, if you want to see if blockland works on your side the site is www.blockland.us (btw it's winblows, so you either should use winblows OR at your own risk use wine, which the current version of blockland is a disgrace with wine)03:35

brandonhowdy, im running jaunty, and my wireless won't connect at all. network manager picks up my network but it just keeps asking me for the wpa key. i couldnt enter the damn key 100 times perfectly correctly but it still prompts for it. Do the support-givers have any clues?03:50

dr34mc0d3redbian ok - in my terminal window to the ssh server it states channel 2: open failed: connect failed: Connection refused03:51
ccfontesbrandon, im not sure of this, but did you use the right format? for example, it perhaps only supports entering in hex format, and you probably entered the ascii/passphrase stringg03:51

lancerockei thought i installed firefox 3.5 from synaptic but im not sure how to launch it. does anyone know?03:57
Flannellancerocke: What version of Ubuntu are you running?03:57
brandonccfontes: kind of embarrasing. its not a wpa key, its a wep64 bit key03:58
lancerockeFlannel, the l8st03:58
theyetilancerocke: Applications -> Internet -> Shiretoko Web Browser03:58
brandonccfontes: 10 characters03:58
Flannellancerocke: 9.04 doesn't include firefox 3.5, unless you've added additional repositories.  Are you talking about Karmic Koala? the alpha?03:58
lancerocketheyeti, thanks03:58
L3dPlatedLinuxis there a way to find out when I last updated03:58
lancerockeFlannel, i guess so. i just launched it03:59
brandonccfontes, the key works fine when i boot in windows, and network manager does pick up my network04:00
ccfontesbrandon, that has to be wpa04:00
theyetiFlannel: Actually, it does include 3.5 in the repositories.  firefox-3.5 in the repositories from the universe repository04:00
ccfontesbrandon, has to be passphrase if wpa04:00
BobPenguinHey guys, my firefox stopped working since I installed the latest updates. I googled the thing and got to a blog with this code to solve the problem: "sudo xulrunner-1.9 --register-global". Is the code OK? Would that code harm my system?04:00
ccfontesbrandon, Im sure wpa doesnt have only 10 characters in hex representation04:00
lancerockethanks again guys.04:00
lancerockeuhhh quick question. does anyone use emerald and the old emerald themes anymore or...?04:01
brandonccfontes, yeah sorry man its not a wpa key its wep64 bit key04:01
recursionBobPenguin - what exactly happened?04:01
lstarnesBobPenguin: it may be something in your ~/.mozilla/04:01
ccfontesbrandon, network manager may not accept that you enter that if it is passphrase. again, confirm if it has literals higher than "F" please04:01
gggdoes rsync have the option04:01
lstarnesBobPenguin: or maybe ~/.mozilla/firefox/04:01
BobPenguinrecursion, my firefox says "Could not find compatible GRE between version and 1.9.0.*." when I try to start it up04:02
ccfontesbrandon, wep 64 in hex representation is 10 characters. you are in hex repr04:02

robin87hello, i am using jaunty and i am having trouble getting a port to "open" when i run a game server...the port is forwarded correctly through my router and the port is visible as "closed" from the internet, i need it open so ppl can connect...can someone help?04:02
ccfontesbrandon, then the opposite may be happening. your network manager may not accept hex repr by default. convert it to ascii/passphrase and then try04:03
recursionrobin87: how are you opening the port?04:03
recursionrobin87: which port?04:03
brandonccfontes: ok, so just convert my wireless routers encryption to ascii/passphrase?04:03
gggcan rsync backup a 80GB partition into 4GB?04:04
robin87recursion, just by running the server..? 27960 is port04:04
gggor below 4GB?04:04
ccfontesbrandon, im so sorry, I mistake, what you have is passphrase or ascii.. very sorry. im a little sleepy now04:04
lstarnesggg: it depends on the data, but that level of compression seems rather unlikely04:04
jeeveshow do I find out why my screen keeps flickering (ie. going into sleep mode)04:04
totohola.Tengo problems with the image of my screen in ubuntu. My video card is onboard. The photos are blue for example. In xp there is no such problem04:04
recursionrobin87: You need to go into your router, and forward the port.04:04
ccfontesbrandon, 10 characters in wep 64 is for sure in passphrase. im sure of this04:04
gggyes,i think rsync does not have any compression04:05
ccfontesbrandon, hold on. ill give you something04:05
gggi did this rsync -avpoglr --delete --delete-excluded --exclude-from=./excludes / /media/disk-1/rsync.004:05
ccfontesbrandon, http://centricle.com/tools/ascii-hex/04:05
BobPenguinOk guys, I runned the code "sudo xulrunner-1.9 --register-global" and my firefox works now. I just hope the code does not harm my system in any way04:05
ccfontesbrandon, after converting, take of the "%"04:06
jeevesccfontes, can you give me a hand with this nvida video issues04:06
robin87recursion, i have already forwarded the port, the port would be stealthed otherwise...the traffic is reaching the OS...i think it is a problem with security in the OS, not letting the server "listen"04:06
lstarnesggg: it does have compression, but I think the compression with -z is for compression during transfer04:06

Krine11Hi, How can i log into ubuntu like i logged into to windows (in windows you just click on your account and simply log in)04:07
brandonccfontes: so, im kinda blank as to what to do with the number i now have04:07
lstarnesKrine11: you are aware that that is unsafe, right?04:07
robin87recursion, because the port shows as "closed" when the OS is running, and "stealth" when the PC is off04:07
Krine11How is this unsafe?04:07
ccfontesbrandon, use it has the key in the network manager?04:08
lstarnesKrine11: other people can access your account without knowing the password04:08
Krine11I trust the people who use the computer.04:08
brandonccfontes; yeah lol sorry04:08
edbianKrine11: You can set up ubuntu so you don't actually have to log in at all (auto login) it is considered unsafe because anyone can walk up to your computer and log in.  Would you like to know how to set it up?04:08
recursionrobin87:try out http://www.canyouseeme.org/04:08
jeevesccfontes, yes, I've checked google.  hence why I'm here asking what I should be looking for04:08

ccfontesjeeves, sorry man.. doesnt occur anything to me04:09
Krine11i have my own sepearte laptop04:09
scuniziKrine11: they can use the guest account or you can create accounts for them.. that way your data and setup won't change04:09
ubottuwebmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. See !ebox instead.04:09

AgentBlairquestion: can ubuntu work on 128mb ram? like for watching online videos?04:46
AgentBlairjust wondering... in your guys experience04:46
edbianAgentBlair: It will run04:46
AgentBlairlike how well?04:46
cleptomubu install 64 bit becuase 32 bit limit is 4 gigs of system ram that includes your  graphics card and cache too04:46
AgentBlairi have a 600mhz 128mb ram inspiron 4000 dell04:46
MyrttiAgentBlair: it will be horrible04:46
edbianAgentBlair: Decently.  I had it on an ancient laptop once (less ram than that) and under 1Ghz processor and I was watching you tube videos on it04:46
AgentBlairhmm cool04:47
MyrttiAgentBlair: it'll run, but it will be horrible. Atleast use Xubuntu04:47
edbianAgentBlair: yes definitely use Xubuntu04:47
AgentBlairi tried xubuntu04:47
AgentBlairon live cd04:47
AgentBlairtook 30 minutes to load04:47
AgentBlairor boot04:47
MyrttiAgentBlair: live cd is live cd04:47
FloodBot2AgentBlair: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.04:47
edbianAgentBlair: That is probably due to the 2x drive.  Installing the OS should make it usable.04:47
MyrttiAgentBlair: you could try ubuntu minimal, and build up from there04:47
spursncowboysJust reinstalled Ub9.04. Where is the website for initial steps.04:47
cleptoseriously anyone i am trying to find the lib64asound2 packages for amd64 bit install of ubuntu 9.04 i can not find them in synaptic i have found them on the web repositories but it only shows them in i38604:47
edbianspursncowboys: The initial steps?  Is it already installed?04:48
AgentBlairi currently have puppylinux.... unfortunately it's half-installed and needs the CD to boot it up.... for some reason the harddrive won't accept the install04:48
AgentBlairbut that's all I tried... just puppy linux, not ubuntu yet04:48
Myrtticlepto: why are you searching them instead of a program needing them pulling the dependencies?04:48
Myrtticlepto: is there software that complains about lack of them?04:49
Unpredictableok I tried sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator but I get resource tem unavail. why?04:49
cleptomyrtti: becuase i am trying to get my onboard mic working.04:49
spursncowboysedbian: I mean the website to do the initial customizations04:49
Unpredictablecould not get lock04:49
cleptomyrtti and someone recommended i installed them04:49
AgentBlairpuppylinux didnt take so long to boot from live-cd... problem is FLash 9 won't work on puppy, so I was hoping ubuntu it would work04:49
edbianspursncowboys: oo, sorry I don't use any of them.  I'm happy with ubuntu pretty much outta the box04:49
AgentBlairill try installing it... does it delete my puppy stuff though?04:49
edbianAgentBlair: If you tell it to04:50
AgentBlairand if i don't it'll still install?04:50
Cry__BabyI installed Ubuntu using alternative install and CRYPT.  So ubuntu always asks me for a password to load Ubuntu..  So is there a way I can remove the need to enter a password at login screen as I dont want it?04:50
spursncowboysoh ok. Thanks04:50
edbianAgentBlair: IDK how big that HDD is but you can install along side puppy just fine if there is room.04:50
ggghow to change the hostname globally and permanently?04:50
Cry__Babyis there a way to remove the need to enter a password at the login screen?04:50
edbianAgentBlair: Depending on how much personal stuff you have that's more than enough for 2 OS's04:51
AgentBlaircook thank you04:51
thedarkgaaaaaaaahhh I don't know what to do04:51
edbianCry__Baby: Auto login in System -> Admin -> Login Screen04:51
AgentBlairwhich live-cd is best? should I use xubuntu? to install it on my HDD04:51
edbianLogin Windoww*04:51
AgentBlairlast question :p04:52
Cry__Babyedbian: ok brb04:52
edbianAgentBlair: Use the Xubuntu live Cd cause that's what you want to install.  (THe best really depends on preference KDE vs. Gnome vs. XFCE)04:52
erpoI'm looking for a program similar to OpenOffice.org Base. Recommendations?04:52
Cry__Babyedbian: I dont have a System -> Admin -> Login Scree04:52
Cry__Babyedbian: System -> Admin -> Login Screen doesnt exist04:52
erpoLogin Window?04:52
edbianyeah login window maybe??04:53
Cry__Babyedbian: no04:53
vosserpo, openoffice is very similar to openoffice base hehe04:53
edbianCry__Baby: KDE?04:53
Cry__Babyedbian: are you a noob?  cause under ADMIN, there is no such thing as "Login Screen".. Using 9.04, Ubuntu, gnome04:53
erpovoss: I'm looking for a graphical database builder that is not openoffice.org base. I'm not sure if that's the right term for that genre of product.04:53
Dr_Willisi have system -> admin -> login window04:54
Cry__Babyanyone else know how to disable the need to enter a password at login screen?  I dont need it as I encrypted the whole filesystem using alternative install.04:54
edbianCry__Baby: No I'm not a noob.  I'm on debian right now and I thought I remembered a "login window" GUI tool there.  in a terminal run "gksu gdmsetup"04:54
Dr_WillisIt could be one has to install the gdm-theme config tool for the to appear.04:54
vosserpo, the openoffice database program is not called base, there is actually a module called openoffice base which is not a database thing, you confused me thats all04:55
Julian__Hello, I hate capitalism and microsoft so I want to switch to Linux Ubuntu. I have a netbook - HP mini 2133, but read that it is not usable with 9.04 because of weak VIA video card support. Any other alternatives?04:55
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about gdm04:55
Cry__Babydrwillins maybe cause im not logged in as admin?04:55
Cry__Babyim logged in as other added user04:55
erpovoss: On my system it's called Base.04:55
Cry__Babyedbian: maybe thats why04:55
synapsys 04:55
erpovoss: The title of the window open right now is: "bdb.odb - OpenOffice.org Base"04:55
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  YOU DONT login as the root user. :)04:55
chachinhow to set co-founder on a channel.04:55
erpovoss: bdb.odb is a file I created to contain a database.04:56
edbianCry__Baby: You should never have to log in as root (gui login that is)04:56
Cry__BabyDr_Willis why then dont I see "Login Window" under ADMIN?04:56
Dr_Willisthat menu item launches ---> gksu /usr/sbin/gdmsetup04:56
edbianCry__Baby: gksu gdmsetup04:56
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  perhaps theres a gdm  config package that needs to be installed04:56
JesusCake[BoT]sudo apt-get install wine : thats how you get wine, correct?04:56
Cry__Babyedbian: im logged in as another user I added.. maybe thats why i dont see System -> Admin -> Login Screen04:56
edbianCry__Baby: Did you run the command?04:56
Julian__Hello, I hate capitalism and microsoft so I want to switch to Linux Ubuntu. I have a netbook - HP mini 2133, but read that it is not usable with 9.04 because of weak VIA video card support. Any other alternatives?04:56
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  thats NOT the reason. :)04:56
edbianDr_Willis: You have Login Window right?04:57
Dr_WillisJulian__:  Theres dozens of disrtos and several that target netbooks.. try them all.04:57
Dr_WillisI have a 'system -> administrion -> login window' icon that launches gdmsetup. it lets me tweak the gdm config stuff04:57
Cry__Babyedbian and Dr_Willis: Ahh I was right.. Login Window appears under ADMIN when I log into ubuntu using the main username I created when installing Ubuntu04:57
edbianCry__Baby: Really?04:58
Cry__Babyedbian and Dr_Willis: but Login Window DEOS NOT appears under ADMIN when I log into ubuntu using this username I added after install04:58
Cry__Babyedbian: really. yes04:58
Dr_WillisI see it under all my users.04:58
Unpredictablecan someone please help me with the sun-java installation.. I get an error and it won't install and my ubuntu is telling me about broken applications or something..04:58
Julian__Dr_Willis: You mean other than Ubuntu?04:58
Dr_Willisnot that the others can run the tool since they dont have sudo rights04:58
edbianCry__Baby: As do I04:58
Cry__Babymaybe cause you added privildges to all those users Dr_Willis?04:58
Dr_WillisJulian__:  yes. theres several netbook specific variants04:58
Cry__Babyedbian: I didnt add all privs to this username04:58
Cry__Babymaybe thats why04:59
Julian__Dr_ Willis: Of ubuntu, or other linux things?04:59
Dr_WillisJulian__:  of all the above. :)04:59
edbianCry__Baby: That's probably why.  Anyway go to the security tab and turn on "auto login" it's pretty straight forward04:59
Dr_WillisJulian__:  go try them out. see what you like.    Depends on your needs. Ubuntu works great on my AceraspireOne04:59
Julian__Dr_ Willis: I'll tyr 8.10, is it very different compared to 9.04?04:59
Cry__Babyedbian: so anyway, I login to the main username and then choose "Login Window" and then what I do?04:59
Dr_WillisJulian__:  try it and see. i guess.. i dont keep notes on the changes. 9.04 works fine for me.05:00
edbianCry__Baby: Go to the security tab and it's pretty straight forward05:00
Cry__Babyedbian: ok becaus I dont need it.. as I encrypted the whole filesystem using alternative install.. RIGHT?05:00
edbianCry__Baby: whoa whoa05:00
=== nicolas_ is now known as Guest9024
vossjulian, some differences , things work better, new splash screen, nothing extreme05:00
Dr_Willisencrypted filesystems - for the truely paranoid :)05:00
edbianCry__Baby: If you turn this on people will be able to walk up to your computer and login without a password.  That is the danger.  Encryption will not protect you from what auto login exposes you to.05:01
MyrttiDr_Willis: or to those who are required it05:01
Cry__Babyedbian: when I first load ubuntu, a message appears saying "sda_crypt, enter password"... so thats why I dont want login to ask me to enter a passwrd again05:01
Odameyerdr willis that is very true05:01
edbianCry__Baby: OOOO05:01
Cry__Babyedbian: you are wrong05:01
edbianCry__Baby: I didn't understand before.05:01
Odameyerjoin #ubuntu-us-oh05:01
edbianCry__Baby: You understand everything.  I didn't temporarily.05:01
Cry__Babyedbian: When I first load ubuntu, a message appears saying "sda_crypt, enter password".. and unless you enter password, you dont proceed anywhere05:01
edbianCry__Baby: Yeah,  I get it.  So yeah go ahead and turn off you account login05:02
Cry__Babyedbian: so they would need to crack my crypt password to get to the login page05:02
Cry__Babyedbian: yes :)05:02
vossWhen I load ubuntu, it plays "Play that funky music white boy" Is that a bug?05:02
frog93hello. i have an almost off-topic licensing question: under the GNU GPL, you are allowed to compile a (GPL'd) dll of (modified) open-source code and use it in an otherwise proprietary app. is this correct?05:02
exo232where do the files for Ubuntu Live CD get placed? is it a RAMDrive?05:02
edbianvoss: No it doesn't...05:02
Cry__Babyedbian: ever installed using alternative CD and encrypting the whole filesystem?05:02
MyrttiCry__Baby: you can store the encryption key to one of your unencrypted partitions, or to a usb stick, but you cannot remove the encryption itself. I've not done it myself before, so I can't help, but there's some guides in the Internet05:02
edbianCry__Baby: No but I do have a harddrive password on my laptop05:02
Cry__BabyMyrtti: what are you talking about? :P05:02
JesusCake[BoT]how ddoes getting programs via wine actually work?05:03
edbianvoss: You didn't set it up that way?  It just does?05:03
Cry__BabyMyrtti: i am only going to remove the login password and auto login.. as I dont need it.. When I first load ubuntu, a message appears saying "sda_crypt, enter password".. and unless you enter password, you dont proceed anywhere05:03
vossedbian, Im just kidding :)05:03
edbianvoss: Oh too bad :(05:03
macvr!wine | JesusCake[BoT]:05:03
ubottuJesusCake[BoT]:: WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu05:03
vossedbian, wouldnt that be the coolest thing ever?05:03
MyrttiCry__Baby: correct. If you want to get rid of that as well, then you need to set up a keyfile to an unencrypted device05:04
edbianvoss: Only if the developers put it in there ha ha ha05:04
Cry__Babydont install WINE,. it makes your FAN go crazy05:04
frog93second attempt at asking question: under the GNU GPL, you are allowed to compile a (GPL'd) dll of (modified) open-source code and use it in an otherwise proprietary app. is this correct? anyone?05:04
Cry__BabyMyrtti: i dont want to get rid off the filesystem password., only the login password as its annyoing and not needed05:04
Myrttifrog93: none of us are lawyers and this isn't Ubuntu support05:04
Myrttiquestion you're asking05:04
JesusCake[BoT]hmmm my firefox froze when i said set this picture as desktop background haha05:04
Cry__BabyMyrtti: even if I remove the login password, nobody can login anyway05:05
edbianfrog93: That is my vague (and non-laywer) understanding of it yes.05:05

frog93ty, mykola. googleing that right now.05:18
whiplashanyone know how to install this?05:18
cabreymykola, doesn't do anything for the atom processor05:18
macvrmykola: do the firefox plugins work with swiftfox?05:18
vossfrog93, which model eeepc do you have?05:18
mykolaaah... cabrey i think you're right05:18
kenitooscan anyone help me with some monitor settings05:18
exo232I dont like firefox either, what I find important in a browser is the most largest possible viewing space, and the fact that firefox dosent let me handle file downloads myself by default really just makes me angry05:18
mykolawhiplash: did you go to that application?05:18
cabreyfrog93, chrome preview FLIES on the eee05:19
whiplashthe .run file came straight from nvidia and it's much newer than the one in ubuntu05:19
cabreyfrog93, i have the 900ha05:19
mykolaand for the record, the best web browser is links :)05:19
tonsofpcsmykola: which version? links? elinks? links2? xlinks?05:19
cabreywhiplash, chmod +x file.run, sudo ./file.run05:19
Cry__Babyedbian: you here?05:19
edbianyeah why?05:19
mykolathere's different versions? :D I must go try them all.05:19
vossfrog93, I use a Dell Mini 9 but I use Ubuntu netbook remix05:19
tonsofpcsmykola: yup05:19
tonsofpcsthen theres lynx [different]05:20
mykolawas going to say something witty about w3m fans... but now i must go try all the links's05:20
whiplashhmm? it runs and installs fine, the kernel module doesn't load, that's my problem05:20
mykolaerrm... links is basically rewritten lynx05:20
JesusCake[BoT]how do i get one desktop background picture for each one of my screens05:20
Cry__Babyedbian: now ubuntu auto logins to one of my users.. good... but when I switch to main user and back to other, then ubuntu asks me to enter password.. any way to get rid of that too?05:20
whiplashwhen i reboot05:20
mykolawhiplash: that's odd... what hardware are you using?05:20
frog93cabrey: nice.do u use anything like almurato's scripts or the array kernel?05:20
whiplashi have fairly standard hardware05:20
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  gdm configs have a 'auto login as a specific user aftger X seconds  setting'05:20
edbianCry__Baby: What do you want to happen when you choose logout?05:20
=== andrew_ is now known as Guest1538
Cry__Babyedbian: switching between users always asks me to enter password for "tommy".  But I dont want tommy to ever be asked for password..  Any way?05:20
mykolacan't help you :( you could try using modprobe to load it yourself. i can't give you instructions tho (would have to google it)05:21
whiplashi read in some places that ubuntu's built-in driver interferes with this one, but i have no idea how to disable that05:21
edbianCry__Baby: OOO.  Quick switch?  IDK I don't think so05:21
cabreyfrog93, i use the array kernel05:21
cabreyfrog93, and eee-applet05:21
whiplashwell thanks anyway05:21
chronographerhello. I think I did something really dumb: I tried to create a symbolic link from all the files in one folder to another folder, ended up with an '*' and would like to know how to get rid of it: lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   31 2009-06-14 14:19 * -> ../../python2.6/site-packages/*05:22
Cry__Babyedbian: let me explain..  when I turn on Ubuntu, tommy loads without need to enter password.. Perfect, thats what I want..  But then in tommy session I switch to "crybaby" which is my main account and enter password. Good so far... but then when I switch back to tommy, im asked to enter password for tommy.. Any way of having tommy NEVER needed to enter password?05:22
exo232its acctuallt that you have to log in to a terminal and run the config from the terminal AFTER you login05:22
chronographerif I use sudo rm * it will kill all the folders in there... right?05:22
frog93cabrey: any trouble with turning wireless on/off. do you end up having to use the pciehp_force boot options?05:22
exo232this is why the Nvidia settings do not save05:22
mykolaafter reading the wiki (in links) i have decided that links2 is the text html browser for me :D05:22
cabreychronographer, try moving it first then use rm \*05:23
edbianCry__Baby: I don't know of a way :(05:23
edbiansorry dude05:23
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: any ideas?05:23
chronographersuod mv * ./this05:23
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  you could set a null password.. or just dont use that switching stuff...05:23
frog93Cry_baby: are you using GNOME?05:23
cabreychronographer, probably sudo mv \* file05:23
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  i dont bothet with such insecure things.05:23
Cry__Babyedbian: i switch between tommy and crybaby all day long.. I dont want tommy needing a password.. any way?05:23
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  set a short password. :)05:23
cabreyfrog93, wireless on/off has never worked, but i dont care05:23
chronographerah nice05:23
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: is that why you had sex with that woman without a condom? LOL05:24
edbianCry__Baby: Why do you want 2 users at all?05:24
mykoladoes passwd allow you to enter a blank string?05:24
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: you have ubuntu secure, but not your own penis lol05:24
mykolathat could solve your problems05:24
chronographerNow is it possible to use the python 2.6 libraries (like numeric) with 2.4 ?05:24
MyrttiCry__Baby: please keep the offtopic and the random stuff elsewhere05:24
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  i imagine the ops may be warning you soon....05:24
Cry__Babyedbian: because the main user is used for netbanking etc.. the other is for general browsing.05:24
jeremiah_my dvd player isnt working05:24
Dr_Willisit pays to heed the ops warnings05:24
frog93@cabrey. i've been really OCD-percetionist about that... spent countless hours trying to fix it. had to reinstall 3 times. don't recommend ever caring about it :-/05:24
mykola(passwd will not let you change to a null password)05:25
Cry__Babysorry I was only joking to Willis.. nothing meant05:25
MyrttiCry__Baby: you can differentiate those with browser profiles05:25
jeremiah_i put a cd in and its not displaying cd on desktop05:25
Dr_Willistheres Secure, then theres paranoid.. and then theres Tinfoil hat paranoid.05:25
jeremiah_is there a way to open cd05:25
Dr_Willisi doubt if that practice is making you any safer Cry__Baby05:25
edbianCry__Baby: I think that if you want that added measure of security than you're going to have to deal with passwords05:25
cabreyfrog93, nothing will ever be perfect, but this release was fantastic. btw, do you have that trackpad mouse issue?05:25
Cry__BabyMyrtti: im worried using one account, because when I login to Netbank, im worried Ubuntu may be infected with something beause I visit every website known to man05:25
exo232I have decided to allow you all to see my amazing KDE default layout http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/3759/testpdw.jpg which I have been unable to fix simply because the text is TOO small and I cant read the files I have to edit to fix it05:25
MyrttiDr_Willis: and then there's people who are required to encrypt their filesystem due to NDA05:26
JesusCake[BoT]i think imma head bac onto windows to see if i can just do a vm of linux05:26
Cry__BabyMyrtti: so I have one main account, thats only used for netbanking.05:26
cabreyexo232, ...05:26
mykolaDr_Willis: interestingly enough, Richard stallman distributed tinfoil at one of his speeches in order to cover the little magnetic tracking necklaces the venue handed out. Also, does anyone know anything about the program Bastille on ubuntu?05:26
Dr_Willismykola:  bastille was popular ages ago.. but ive not seen/heard much of it in ages....05:26
mykolaI know it's a network hardener... but i'm not quite sure what you accomplish with it05:27
Dr_Willismykola:  Tinfoil hat paranoid does suite him :)05:27
mykolaah. thx05:27
Cry__BabyMyrtti: know what I mean?05:27
edbianCry__Baby: Ubuntu is very immune to most anything on the web (and by that I mean 100% of everything)05:27
jeremiah_may some one help me, i dont know why but i cant read cds05:27
Cry__BabyMyrtti: you mean there may be a solution, using just one user?05:27
cabreyedbian, it isnt immune to human error05:27
mykolaDr_Willis: the same man who is for abandoning passwords at his workstations :) because passwords close people off from sharing and building05:27
exo232cabrey: pretty isnt it? thats why when I installed Kubuntu it partitioned the wrong drive, because the INSTALLER had the very same text issue05:27
exo232making it impossible for me to see the drive name05:28
MyrttiCry__Baby: try starting firefox with the command "firefox -ProfileManager"05:28
Cry__Babyedbian: so you mean I could visit every website in the world and still be able to use firefox for netbanking and not be worried?05:28
taylor_Does anyone know the command that selects an ip on ubuntu that solves the "eth0 is not ready" problem on firestarter05:28
Dr_Willismykola:  we need the new ToungePrint1000 usb adaptors.05:28
cabreyexo232, i use gnome and ubuntu's font rendering system is great05:28
resonateHello there05:28
edbianCry__Baby: I would05:28
mykolajeremiah. sudo mount /dev/cdrom /your/location/here05:29
edbianCry__Baby: Linux is fundamentally more secure than windows05:29
mykolatell us what happens if it doesn't work05:29
Cry__BabyMyrtti: I just had any idea.. what if I use Opera for my netbanking and login to my credit card account, and use firefox for everything else?05:29
edbianCry__Baby: Research it!  Google is your friend05:29
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  theres 1000000+ people that do it every day05:29
MyrttiCry__Baby: one of the options05:29
mykolaDr_Willis: hehe05:29
edbianCry__Baby: You could create two firefox sessions as well05:29
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  thats  doable also...05:29
exo232cabrey: yes I know i'm on it right now - Acctually im running a live CD right now to fix my partition tables, and its been going for 6 hours (yay Gnomtris)05:29
supercom32Is there a way of converting a NTFS partition to EXT3 without data loss?05:29
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  or get out the tinfoil hats.05:29
cabreysupercom32, no05:29
usserCry__Baby, wow! i take of my hat sir. how ppl never thought of that before :)05:29
mykolasupercom32: create an EXT3 of the same size and move the data :)05:29
Cry__Babyso how do I now merge the 2 users into the main one?05:30
taylor_Does anyone know the command that selects an ip on ubuntu that solves the "eth0 is not ready" problem on firestarter05:30
Cry__Babyusser: thought of what?05:30
Dr_Willissupercom32:  resize.. move stuff to the newly made ext3.... delete ntfs.. resize ext3 :)05:30
mykolajeremiah_: did it work?05:30
usserCry__Baby, using two browsers05:30
cabreyDr_Willis, if there is data taking up more than half, that wont work05:30
resonatedoes anyone know of a good console/terminal based irc client?05:30
supercom32Dr_Willis: implies that I have space on the same drive to do the moves.05:30
Dr_Williscabrey:  do it in several steps :) (and YES i have done it.. took ages)05:30
=== usser is now known as mourice_mauss
Cry__BabyMyrtti: you mean I can visit p0rn websites and every other type of website using firefox.. and still be able to safely use Opera to access my credit card website and bank website?05:31
exo232although I'm having a bit of a problem getting firefox to load the AdobeFlash player on the LiveCD lol i can either decode video OR audio05:31
cabreyDr_Willis, or no space at all05:31
MyrttiCry__Baby: yes.05:31
cabreythats awkward05:31
mykolaCry_Baby: basically yeah05:31
Dr_Williscabrey:  delete all the porn? :)  if your drive is full.. time to go buy a new drive.. or restore from backups.05:31
mykolaCry__Baby: just don't tell us what you're doing :P  please05:31
Cry__BabyMyrtti: wow this will save me heaps of time, always switching between 2 users.. its annoying05:31
cabreyDr_Willis, tell supercom32 that not me :)05:31
Cry__Babymykola: lol ;)05:31
Cry__BabyMyrtti: how do I now merge the 2 users, so I dont have to start again?05:32
Dr_Willisstart what again exactly Cry__Baby ?05:32
cabreydoes anybody know of a way to stop my hdd spinning down?05:32
mykolacabrey: hmm?05:32
cabreyit is incredibly annoying when music pauses for a second while the hdd spins back up05:33
dotblankcabrey, hdparem?05:33
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: i have tommy setup perfectly,,, but I am now only going to use crybaby user... how do i merge tommy to crybaby?05:33
cabreyi use mpd btw05:33
Cry__Babycabrey: can you live with it?05:33
cabreyCry__Baby, no lol05:33
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  if by merge you mean COPY all settings from tommy to crybaby. use the cp command to copy all the users setting files to the other user.. then set the proper permissions on the files.05:33
Cry__BabyMyrtti: what exactly is firefox allowed to write to my HD?05:34
mykolaCry__Baby: whatever your user can05:34
mykolaCry__Baby: so if you start it as root... then everything05:34
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: ouch, seems loike a lot of work :(  Ill just remove tommy and start again05:34
mykolaCry__Baby: if you start it as crybaby... then it can only touch /home/crybaby05:34
mykolaCry__Baby: just copy over what you want from tommy (themes and whatnot... they should all be somewhere in tommys home)05:34
Cry__BabyMyrtti: shall I then login as crybaby and remove tommy?  is that all I need do?05:35
mykolaCry__Baby: and set them up for crybaby05:35
Cry__Babymykola: ok05:35
Cry__Babymykola: do I then remove tommy from ADMIN/users?05:35

mubuHey guys, how can i run a certain sudo command (wondershaper, to throttle and unthrottle a NIC) at  a specific time, only once, not every day or week, etc? thanks05:40
DnSmykola, once I set fs ext3... and this is a reason of problem, I think.05:41
mykolaDnS: ok... how many hard drives do you have (just want to know for the mount command... sda, sdb, etc)05:42
mykolaDnS: should be "sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/nextharddriveinthelist /choose/a/mount/point"05:44
DnSmikola: actualy, problem with cerdreader.. ok< I will tey do it..05:44
mykolaDnS: i've got 2 hard drives... so if i wanted to manually mount a usb drive with ext3 to ~/tmp i would do "sudo man -t ext3 /dev/sdc ~/tmp"05:44
mykolaDnS: actually... do whatever you think it is first :D I'm just guessing05:44
mykolaDnS: i'm looking for more error output tbh05:45
mykolaDnS: if it's a problem with the reader then that command will give you nothing05:45
cabreymykola, sudo man? don't you mean mount?05:47

mykolaext3 has a journal05:50
cabreyProcedured, yes it will be05:50
gum76what's a journal?05:50

Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  try it and see06:06
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  you worry too much about trivial things.06:06
cabreyif not sudo rm -rf /home/user06:06
mykolaCry__Baby: unless you've been secretly using admin powers to change their personal files to thing in random directories...06:06
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: every user has their own /tmp/ folder?06:06
mykolacabrey, no06:07
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  users can put things in /tmp/ thats whats tmp is for.06:07

mykolaCry__Baby: are you currently logged in as tommy?06:07
mourice_maussCry__Baby, sudo userdel -r tommy06:07
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  logic --> to do 'admin' type tasks one has to use root permissions. :)06:07
exo232!why my life sucks06:08
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)06:08
gggif i connect to ubuntu server06:08
Cry__Babymourice_mauss: so type "sudo userdel -r tommy"?06:08
mykolayou must be logged out of tommy06:08
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  rember that mantra. :) admin tasks -> gotta be root.06:08
Cry__Babyok brb06:08
mourice_maussmykola, not really06:08
mykolaand any program running under tommy must be closed06:08
gggwhich will be displayed06:08
gggsomething like this "petsounds (n=Lennon@ has joined #ubuntu"06:08
cabreymourice_mauss, just like you don't have to run AV on windows06:08
Cry__Babymay Ubuntu is solid :)  my problem is that I am looking at Ubuntu from a windows persepetive and windows mind-set06:08
mykolasudo userdel -r tommy should work06:08
Cry__Babyman rather06:09
ggghere petsounds_ (n=Lennon@ has joined #ubuntu06:09
cabreyCry__Baby, you're thinking of the registry aren't you06:09
Myrttiggg: you can't hide it from the client06:09
ggghere where does  "n=Lennon@" come from?06:09
Cry__Babycabrey: im thinking a user has their files all over the place.. but its only in their home :)06:09
Cry__Babyremoving now. brb06:09
Myrttiggg: hiding it is possible depending on the IRC network you're connecting to06:10
mykolaCry__Baby: magic, aint it? :)06:10
Myrttiggg: it can be done in freenode, but probably not in many others.06:10

|unjustice|Hi, I am trying to mount an external usb hard drive with this command sudo mount /dev/sde -a -t msdos /home/username/Desktop/folder but I cannot get it to mount, it says the device has "32" as a filesystem on it06:10
Myrtti!cloak > ggg06:10
Cry__Babymykola: :)06:10
|unjustice|does anyone know how I can write a fs to this thing?06:10
mykola|unjustice|: try sudo mount /dev/sde -a -t vfat /home/username/Desktop/folder06:11
Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  its VERY likely you really mean to use /dev/sde1  not sde06:11
Cry__Babyso now I will use firefox for everything.. but use Opera for netbanking and login to my CC website.. is that safe?  Opera safe for that?06:11
mykola|unjustice|: try sudo mount /dev/sde1 -a -t vfat /home/username/Desktop/folder       heh06:11
|unjustice|Dr_Willis: but there is no sde1 in /dev06:11
mykola|unjustice|: yes there is.06:11
mykola|unjustice|: yes there is. sde1 is the first partition of the 5th hard drive06:11
Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  you some how parttiuoned the thing with an unusual partiion layout? try 'sudo fdisk -l /dev/sde' and see06:12
ggghere "mailto:n=porphyri@d122-105-91-59.meb11.vic.optusnet.com.au"06:12
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  you worry about way too many things. :)06:12
|unjustice|Dr_Willis: there is no partition06:12
Myrttiggg: did you read the stuff ubottu gave you?06:12
mykolaCry__Baby: firefox will work for you :P06:12
gggwhat is "porphyri@" ?06:12
Myrttiggg: or what I said, for that matter?06:12
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  you do realize that the way you were doing things earlier could also been done by just running the other browser as the other user. :) no need to do the swtching of users..06:12
gggis it the user account06:12
JohnathanDoes ubuntu create its own partition size?06:13
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: not worry, precaution.. theres a difference.06:13
exo232|unjustice|: Dr_Willis: there is no partition (very zen statement)06:13
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  paranoia.06:13
mykolaJohnathan: you can specify it06:13
kapilCry__Baby: you can also use different profiles for the same browser.06:13
Myrttiggg: depends.06:13
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: if everyine was precautious like me, there wouldnt be billions of dollars of fraud each year, cause nobody would be stung06:13
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: no paranoid, precautious06:13
jooGooHello. Is here anyone playing World of Warcraft on ubuntu? (jaunty 9.04) -or knows how to install it. I've been trying to install it for quite some time now but been having problems. I hope this is the right place to ask such a question.06:13
|unjustice|what should I use to parition? hdparm or something?06:13
Dr_Willisexo232:  :) i noticed the ubuntu netbook remix image file also goes to the usb drive with NO XxX1 partiion. :) which really can confuse things06:13
Johnathanis there a way to change the partition size after install?06:13
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: theres a difference..  nothing wrong with getting the most secure setup possible06:13
mykolaCry__Baby: remember our tinfoil hat conversation? ;)06:14
cabreyJohnathan, use the live cd and gparted06:14
Johnathanyou mean use the ubuntu install cd?06:14
Cry__Babymykola: i rather talk about your sister ;)06:14
exo232I've been using the liveCD with Gparted for 6 hours and 15 mins thus far06:14
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  you are using linux allready. :) anything else you are trying to do is like hireing a Little toy poodle to guard the  Large rabid guard dog. :)06:14
luisaCould a very smart person help? :-P I am connected to my wireless network (86% strenght), and I can connect to anything, like, xchat, my games, AIM, YAhoo... But I can't browse web pages!  When I was connected by ethernet cable (now im wifi)  I could browse the web!06:14
richjJohnathan, the live cd is required because the partitions you want to edit must not be mounted06:15
mykolaCry__Baby: you can have her... along with an FBI agent, she's 606:15
Johnathanwhat is live cd?06:15
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: so there is no way at all that I can login to my bank website and be stung?06:15
jooGooHello. Is here anyone playing World of Warcraft on ubuntu? (jaunty 9.04) -or knows how to install it. I've been trying to install it for quite some time now but been having problems. I hope this is the right place to ask such a question.06:15
Cry__Babymykola: thats ok, im only 7 :)06:15
cabreyJohnathan, the ubuntu cd06:15
Johnathanok thanks, brb guys06:15
mykolaJohnathan: a live CD is a cd that you can boot an operating system from and run as if it were installed06:15
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  your time would be better spent learning linux basics then trying  odd security things that may or may not be any more secure then the defaults.06:15
mykolaCry__Baby: and you're doing online banking. I think you need a medal! or at least a cookie.06:15
exo232Johnathan: its the ubuntu install CD only instead of selecting "Install Ubuntu" you select "Try Ubuntu without any changes to your computer"06:15
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: do you have a Doctorate, or you trying to impress? :)06:16
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  ive not heard of any bank expoits in ages.. and those i recall all relied on IE bugs.06:16
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about liveccd06:16
ubottuThe Ubuntu Desktop CD is a "LiveCD" which can be run without altering existing files on your harddrive. Especially useful for testing your hardware's compatibility, it also includes an install option.06:16
Johnathanthen what do I do after I chose ubuntu without install?06:16
|unjustice|Dr_Willis: how do I partition /dev to make /dev/sde1?06:16
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  I got my Degree in Loveology.. I am the Dr of Live.06:16
Dr_WillisCry__Baby:  I got my Degree in Loveology.. I am the Dr of Love06:16
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: yeah, IE bugs. eek06:16
|unjustice|Dr_Willis: I mean /dev/sde to /dev/sde1 and /dev/sde206:16
Cry__BabyDr_Willis: :)06:16
jooGooHello. Is here anyone playing World of Warcraft on ubuntu? (jaunty 9.04) -or knows how to install it. I've been trying to install it for quite some time now but been having problems. I hope this is the right place to ask such a question.06:16
mykolaJohnathan: if you click on the "install" icon of the ubuntu live desktop, you will get a very nice installer to guide you through the steps06:16
richjJohnathan, when it boots up to the desktop, run gparted06:16
Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  normally you dont.. if fdisk -l shows no sde1 on the drive  then  you would mount /dev/sde not sde106:17
mykolarichj: the installer runs gparted for you06:17
cabreymykola, no he wants to resize06:17
FloodBot2mykola: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.06:17
richjmykola, yes it does, so? :)06:17
cabreyhaha mykola got banned06:17
exo232jooGoo I have successfully installed this software in the past using Wine - theres acctually a Youtube Instructional video06:17
|unjustice|Dr_Willis: right, but /dev/sde1 does not exist06:17
Johnathanok guys, I will see you soon06:17
Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  optical disks normalkly are partioned that way :) you CAN partiion hard drives and usb drives that way.. but its odd.06:17

|unjustice|Dr_Willis: I have partitioned ipods in that way to get rockbox on them, but I have not had to do this for a hard drive06:18
cabreypets* lol06:18
cabreystupid netbook keyboard06:18
trubuntuhyou damn foot fetishist06:18
mykola|unjustice|: I'm pretty sure that using /dev/sde1 will get you what you want. it will have a partition table on it (even though there's only one)06:18
trubuntuhleave our fb girls alone06:18
|unjustice|mykola: nope06:18
exo232JooGoo acctually what I did was Installed Wow on a windows machine,  and then I copied the folder with pre-installed files and used "Wine" simply to launch it06:19
mykola|unjustice|: then just try using /dev/sde and seeing what happens! :)06:19
richj|unjustice|, what are you trying to do?06:19
Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  last i noticed the 'feature' was when i dd'd the ubuntu netbook remix image to a flash drive.. its a 1gb image.. so it made a single partition (sdb) and no other partitions.. thus wasteing 7gb of my 8gb thumbdrive :006:19
taylor_Does anyone know the command that selects an ip on ubuntu that solves the "eth0 is not ready" problem on firestarter06:19
luisaCan anyone help me figure why I can use my internet to chat with you, my friends, and play online games, but i cannot browse pages?06:19
mykolamount a usb drive with a wierd fs :P06:19
cabreyDr_Willis, you can restore that you know :P06:20
exo232Joogoo its on youtube though, im sure you can find it, unfortuantly I'm on LiveCD right now and I dont have AdobeFlash06:20
Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  you can still mount the thing using /dev/sde  not /dev/sde1 for example.06:20
|unjustice|I did, it does not work06:20
Dr_Williscabrey:  i just used it to install then reformated it. :)06:20
jooGooexo232: I've tried the same. Copied the Wow folder from my friends machine to a usb memory stick and then pasted it into my own hardrive. (programfiles/Worldofwarcraft  -in wine folder)06:20
Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  then you mayu be doing somthing else wrong.06:20

cabreyjooGoo, the 'unstable' version is pretty stable06:22
Dr_Willis[t0rc]:  bash basics.. use the &  at the end of the command.06:22
jooGoocabrey: instaleld it via synaptic :P06:22
|unjustice|mykola: I only get a fs when I type mount "32" which is not valid, hence the bad fs error06:22
mykolat0rc: & i think. like, conky&06:22

mykoladon't think msdos is a fileytype06:23
cabreyjooGoo, no i dont play WoW but i know it works with newer versions06:23
|unjustice|mykola: I tried vfat too06:23
Dr_WillismoDumass:  if fdisk -l aint showing it.. then theres some bios/other issues going on06:24
moDumassDr_Willis, how would i manually mount it?06:24

|unjustice|richj: I have a new hard drive, I am tryin to partition and put a filesytem on it, but I cannot mount it to add a fs06:25
|unjustice|mykola: yes06:25
Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  you normally partition it and format it.. BEfor you mount it....06:25
mykolatry lsusb06:25
richj|unjustice|, you cant mount it before the partioning06:25
mykolasee what happens06:25
|unjustice|mykola: tis, this is actually a friend's06:25
moDumassDr_Willis, what am i looking for in the end of the message?06:25
richj|unjustice|, you make the partitions BEFORE mounting it06:25
mykolajust wanna see if it's detecting at all06:25
Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  gparted should make that an easy task.06:25
|unjustice|richj: I know06:25
Dr_WillismoDumass:  mention of new usb devices gettting added.06:26
|unjustice|richj: I need to know how to partition it06:26
|unjustice|richj: hdparm? I did this last week and forgot it already06:26
mykola|unjustice|: wait... is there data on it?06:26
richj|unjustice|, gparted is easy, or fisk to do it by hand06:26
Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  use gparted, or the fdisk command..06:26
moDumassDr_Willis, [1227863.381047] usb 1-5: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 1806:26

chronographeruse gparted, fdisk is too hard!06:26
Dr_WillismoDumass:  now about 10 sec later... try the command again and look  see if it says some other stuff.06:26
mykolacfdisk instead06:26
moDumassDr_Willis, would that be it?06:26

Dr_WillismoDumass:  if it succedes it will mention what device its set to be...06:27

Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  fdisk supports the use of sizes like +12G for 12gb :) and so forth.06:28
Dr_Willis|unjustice|:  or use gparted. (i think this has been suggested like 10 times now)06:29

Sancsengoanybody can tell me how can i change my CRT monitor Hz number? cause its only 85 :S08:48
mobi-sheepSancsengo: It's not in "Display" ?08:48
Sancsengo85 is the max :\08:48
Sancsengoand i know it can 100 Hz08:48
ikoniaSancsengo: depending on your videocarc/monitor it may be a limitation of the linux/xorg module that drives it, however it may also need to be hardcoded into the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, or it could be easy enough to use the "Display" menu in "system->administration"08:49

Sancsengoi look with gedit08:54

chocobananaUntouchab1e: hmmm 802.11n may still not be as stable as 802.11g. Are you just connecting to the internet or you also have a home network with other computers?09:10
Untouchab1e802.11n or g og b is irrelevant since im connected with a cable..09:10
chocobananaoh right09:10
Untouchab1ebut yeah.. the router is connected directly to a laptop which shares its wireless internet connection09:10
Drikanggg: what program did you create the account with?09:11
Untouchab1eand as mentioned, it works perfectly fine in Windows without problems..09:11
Drikanggg: Never mind09:11
ikoniaUntouchab1e: working with windows has no relevance to ubuntu other than proving the hardware is working09:11
Drikanggg: was way far back in the chat log09:11
chocobananaUntouchab1e: so you're relaying the internet connection from your computer to others?09:11
Untouchab1eWell, it doesn show that the problem lies not in the network but in fact in Linux..09:11
Untouchab1ebut yeah..09:11
Untouchab1eA laptop is picking up a wireless network and relaying it to a WLAN router..09:12
aceruserI did mke2fs.ext -c -c, now it it is checking with the 0xaa pattern, followed by the 0x55 pattern... how many of those patterns are there in total? my hd has been formatting for 10 hours now!! this is not good for a hd!09:12
ikoniaUntouchab1e: what wirless network card is in your laptop/machine09:12
guanoundliebei think noone replied to my questions yet, should i wait?09:12
ikoniaguanoundliebe: ask a question09:12
Untouchab1eIntel 5100 Wifi Link09:12
ikoniaUntouchab1e: check with lspci see what ubuntu recognises it as09:13
Untouchab1ebut that laptop isnt running linux09:13
s3r3n1t7aceruser, you specified the -c option twice. This means a much slower read/write test is performed. If your HD is large, this will probably take a lot of time.09:13
Untouchab1eIl try to explain again..09:13
guanoundliebei want to install ubuntu 8.10 from usb. does it guide me through installation ..because i have vista installed and no cd drive to make a recovery of it, thx09:13
acerusers3r3n1t7 but how many patterns?09:13
mobi-sheepguanoundliebe: Use Wubi?09:13
s3r3n1t7aceruser, i don't know.09:14
Untouchab1eThe laptop is relays the internet connection to a WLAN Router.. my desktop computer is connected directly to that WLAN router (so is 2 other computers which work perfectly fine with Windows in terms of internet connection speed)09:14
chocobananaguanoundliebe: yes, it has an installation wizard09:14
guanoundliebewubi ok, i will try to find some info09:14
Untouchab1ethat desktop computer is the one running linux (tried Ubuntu\OpenSUSE\Mandriva, all the same problems)09:14
ikoniaUntouchab1e: ok, so your laptop is acting as a proxy/router09:14
Untouchab1eand that is where the ethernet connection is just dead slow and just results in endless errors09:14
s3r3n1t7aceruser, why are you using this slow test?09:14
ikoniaUntouchab1e: and your desktop is not able to connect, correct ?09:15
Untouchab1eWell.. technically yeah.. sure09:15
chocobananaUntouchab1e: you could try and configure a static IP for the desktop09:15
Untouchab1eYeah, I tried.. :/09:15
ikoniaUntouchab1e: ok, so what network card is in your desktop ?09:15
mobi-sheepguanoundliebe: Running via Wubi would be a bit slow in read/write.  Although I prefer pure linux myself.  You don't want to lose your data so Wubi is one way for you to experiment around with linux / Ubuntu. ;o09:15
xy|oxUntouchab1e, your problem could be related to 1) correct network card driver 2) mtu problems, may be you need to adjust mtu values09:15
Untouchab1eWell, in the desktop computer I have a NVIDIA nForce 590 Ethernet card09:15
Untouchab1eWoulndt MTU be set to 1500 by default=09:16
ikoniaUntouchab1e: if you do an "ifconfig -a" how many "ethX" devices do you see ?09:16
Untouchab1eRight now, Im in windows though..but i get eth0 and eth1 as far as I can remember, which is likely because my motherboard (ASUS M2N-SLI) has two networks cards09:16
* JoN^BoN^JovI * ManOwaR - Tatko (Bulgarian).mp309:16
ikoniaJoN^BoN^JovI:  please disable that script09:17
chocobananaoh dear09:17
ikoniaUntouchab1e: on the desktop do an "lspci" and see what ubuntu identifies your networks as09:17
Untouchab1eRight now I dont have Ubuntu installed, but let me connect to #ubuntu on my laptop and then boot into mandriva on my desktop09:18
ikoniaUntouchab1e: if you're not using ubuntu - we can't help you09:18
ikoniaUntouchab1e: take it to #mandriva09:18
Untouchab1eBut the problem exists on all the linux distro's Ive tried09:18
ikoniaUntouchab1e: that doesn't matter09:18
xy|oxUntouchab1e, your mtu, in your case, as you explained your connection goes wireless through a laptop, then you need to set the mtu to the value of the laptop mtu to pass it through, or simply activate mtu discovery on, wich is activated by default on windows09:18

un|matrixs3r3n1t7: it doesn't update the view. this didn't happen on intrepid09:32
dravenhanasaki, you need grub09:32
Seveasmaddhat, tune2fs -m09:32
maddhatthanks :-)09:33
hanasakidraven:  why is that?09:33
tgpraveenhi today only I upgraded09:33
s3r3n1t7un|matrix, doesn't update the view? You mean that it doesn't refresh the whole screen, but only the part where you did something?09:33
un|matrixs3r3n1t7: it's reported in bug #367682, but it was marked as a dupe to some weird non-related thing09:33
hanasakidraven:  with the chainloader or another way?09:33
chocobananavladtsepesh: is it a secondary or primary screen? What graphics card you have and which Ubuntu version?09:33
lucianikonia i have a question why in my kopete aplication doesn't exist settings>configure>aperence09:33
dravenhanasaki, windows will need to be installed first. the windows bootloader won't recognize windows09:33
un|matrixs3r3n1t7: the whole screen09:33
dravenhanasaki, ugh i mean linux09:33
ikonialucian: I'm pretty sure it does09:33
dieMasjienHi everyone. Can I conclude that Ubuntu server does not have a management console to control client and group policies like Microsoft Active Directory? We want to forced certain policies (certain resolutions, background images ect on each client (desktop user) at our office)09:33
tgpraveenhi today only I upgraded to jaunty final from alpha 5.09:33
s3r3n1t7un|matrix, that's a server configuration iirc. Let me see that bug though, maybe i'm wrong.09:33
SeveasdieMasjien, not exactly09:33
hanasakiwin is installed already .. I cannot reinstall it. need to modify the system to be dual boot09:33
un|matrixs3r3n1t7: all you see is like a screenshot09:34
ikoniadieMasjien: you need to use the policy kit and ldap09:34
tgpraveenone thing that was different was that now whenever someone comes online in pidgin09:34
tgpraveenalso the messaging indicator flashes09:34
dravenhanasaki, if you left space and partitions for linux you'll be fine09:34
tgpraveenis this a bug ? should it not get that green dot when I receive a message09:34
tgpraveenis there a way to change it09:34
lucianikonia its just settings>configure>chat window09:34
hanasakidraven:  the plan is to boot the desktop cd and resize the partition.  however, what do I put in menu.lst to get win to boot as well?09:35
lucianthe aperence  stage it's missing09:35
dieMasjienikonia, Seveas: Is this server side and when the employee logs onto the domain these settings will be forced on their pcs?09:35
nperryIve setup an fstab for my external drive, still isnt mounting at boot, Where would i see the error if it fails mounting?09:35
dravenikonia, any idea on the recovery of the raid 0?09:35
SeveasdieMasjien, I'm searching for the app you need, can't remember its name. Policykit and ldap as ikonia suggested are for authorization/authentication management only09:35
dravenhanasaki, in a normal install ubuntu will recognize your windows install and put an entry into grub for you09:36
ikoniadraven: sorry, forgot about that, your going to have to boot into a livecd - start the raid array, get the new uuid's and update your mdadm.conf file09:36
hanasakidraven:  the current system is windows only.. so umm does that mean that there is no sector to boot on the windows aprtition? only on the mbr?  and thus it will be overwritten with the grub loader which is a problem09:36
SeveasdieMasjien, pessulus09:36
amaureaIs there an easy way to convert between date formats? I think "date" should be able to do it, but I can't seem to make it recognize my input format09:36
s3r3n1t7un|matrix, ah, you use Vino as VNC server?09:37
guanoundliebei am installing xubuntu over Wibu now. but it says "xubuntu-9.04-desktop-amd64.iso.torrent even i have a intel centrino. is that fine? thx09:37
dravenhanasaki, windows always tosses it's boot loader to the mbr. grub may be installed elsewhere but should include your windows install and put it as a boot selection09:37
vladtsepeshchocobanana: can u help me?09:37
Seveasguanoundliebe, no.09:37
guanoundliebeoh oh09:37
amaureaI tried this: date -d 20090524003952 +%Y%m%d%H%M%S, but the format string there is interpreted as the output format, not input format09:38
un|matrixs3r3n1t7: yeah the default in ubuntu... it's really simple to enable/configure, which i like very much09:38
chocobananavladtsepesh: yes, but I dind't see your answer to my questions09:38
Seveasguanoundliebe, unless the centrino is 64bit09:38
Guest79225hi again09:38
=== redarrow_ is now known as redarrow
guanoundliebeSeveas, so i break up the download?09:38
vladtsepeshsorry i have read your answer....so this is my first and only screen09:38
guanoundliebeoh i see09:38
Guest79225is there any way to reset my panels to the default ubuntu ones?09:38
guanoundliebei dont think so09:38
Seveasguanoundliebe, I thought all centrinos are 32bit, so better grab the 'i386' version09:38
dravenikonia, thanks. room night all09:38
s3r3n1t7un|matrix, hmm yes. I used vnc-server to set it up, not vino.09:38
guanoundliebether wibu did it automatically Seavas09:38
racecar56any way possible to reverse video (make it backwards)? i think ffmpeg may be one way but i'm not too good with it09:38
lapwookif i set up an ubuntu server as followed by this guide: http://rubbervir.us/projects/ubuntu_media_server/ is there a way i can access this externally outside my network?09:38
vladtsepeshthe graphic card is an integrated video card but i dont remeber wich model....however it is neither nvidia nor ati09:39
s3r3n1t7vladtsepesh, intel maybe?09:39
mistereverywherehowdy all09:39
racecar56vladtsepesh, most of the time integrated vid cards are intel09:39
vladtsepeshyes intel i think09:39
hanasakidraven:  ok so right now the mbr is the windows mbr / bootloader. this I know.  it has the code to start windows on the 2nd partition (first is the dell hidden partition)  so If I overwrite the mbr and windwos bootloader with grub the windows bootable that the windows bootloader uses will be gone.. this is a problem I think.  what do you think?09:39
un|matrixGuest79225: gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/panel09:39
zalunI have problem with the bcm431809:39
guanoundliebeSeavas: the Wibu installer maybe made the right decisiion?09:39
racecar56hanasaki, no, grub dosen't kill winblows mbr09:39
chocobananavladtsepesh: Ubuntu version? Is the new screen primary or secondary?09:39
zalunI don't have other connection than wireless09:40
hanasakiracecar56:  how so?09:40
racecar56hanasaki, if you boot winblows in grub it boots the winblows mbr09:40
dieMasjienSeveas: Thank you, just for clarification, when using pessulus, it forces certain desktop settings specifically for gnome, but does it also allow us to change e.g. access to the hard drive, disable the ability to install applications ect?09:40
racecar56hanasaki, :)09:40
vladtsepeshnew screen is primary....i have switch the two screen....ubuntu is 9.0409:40
dravenhanasaki, no that is not a problem. as i mentioned before grub will detect and put an entry into it for windows09:40
hanasakiracecar56:  there is only one mbr09:40
zalunI managed to get the b43 module loaded, bot to no change on the iwlist scan09:40
un|matrixs3r3n1t7: how do i change to vnc-server without screwing up something?09:40
zeeblehi. i installed azureus on ubuntu, and i have sun-java6-bin installed, but azureus wont run09:40
zeebleexec: 11: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java: not found09:40
SeveasdieMasjien, 'access to hard drive', well to parts of it, is done with file permissions. No users by default have the ability to install packages and this is controlled through standard permissions/groups/sudo09:41
racecar56hanasaki, :\ i know it's confusing but i can boot winblows or ubuntu with grub, no problems there09:41
Igramulzeeble, any error message?09:41
zeeblehow do i fix that?09:41
racecar56hanasaki, but im glad grub can do that =>09:41
zalunthere is ssb, mac80211, led_class and ssb using the b43 module09:41
zeebleIgramul: i tried running it from CLI, and i got exec: 11: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java: not found09:41
zalunit's ampd64 if that helps09:41
JanhouseHow can I make Ubuntu's keyring store more passwords?09:41
s3r3n1t7un|matrix, as far as my knowledge goes, it's just a different program. You can disable vino in the menu, install vnc-server, and then start it from command line.09:41
hanasakiracecar56:  can you walk through your process that setup the dual boot?09:41
chocobananavladtsepesh: what's the new screen native resolution?09:41
racecar56hanasaki, ?09:41
SeveasdieMasjien, so you'll need 1) pessulus for gnome-y things 2) Correct file permissions 3) ldap for account management 4) something like puppet to synchronize files like /etc/sudoers09:41
zeeblei run transmission on ubuntu usually, but there are some torrents i was downloading in windows that i want to continue here09:42
* zalun is frustrated09:42
vladtsepeshi don't know but in windows xp it works on 800x60009:42
un|matrixs3r3n1t7: by 'menu' you mean Synaptic?09:42
vladtsepeshis an old lcd screen09:42
Igramulzeeble, try "java -version" to check, if the OpenJDK is used.09:42
* zalun has to use his daughter eee to ask for help09:42
SeveasdieMasjien, and you're correct in concluding that this isn't as integrated as the windows AD console. Personally I consider that a good thing :)09:43
chocobananavladtsepesh: and did you try to type the following in a terminal:    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg09:43
zeebleIgramul: java version "1.6.0_14"09:43
zeeblenope, the proper version09:43
s3r3n1t7un|matrix, you configured vino from the configuration menu in system didn't you? i thought there was a menu for it ..09:43
zalunb43 is not working for  me - or it is and I don't know how to make it connect09:43
zalunit was working fine on the 8.10 (ndiswrapper probably)09:43
vladtsepeshno...i'll try it now....so i have to run sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg and reboot?09:44

racecar56hanasaki, got what u wanted?09:56
hanasakiracecar56:  ah.. so windows always puts what is needed on the partition it is installed on?  the mbr and windows boot loader is just to get to the partition and load the boot code for win?09:56
koshariEsju ok cos there is a known bug with nvidia drivers and compiz09:56
racecar56hanasaki, yah09:56
bitsbamzeeble: and the pop up notifications like in gnome when pidgin does something09:56
rameshwozeeble: not many people aware of ubuntu around me. i got 8.10 in 3 weeks n i can wait for that time..09:57

chocobananaluisa: Close all browsers. Then uninstall (Mark for complete removal) those three packages. Check if there are more installed in that results list (there shouldn't be) and remove as well. Then reinstall only the flashplugin-installer09:57

zeebleno, you wont miss any feature disabling compiz.10:08
norpan111thanks =)10:08
chocobanananorpan111: disabled here because it doesn't play nice with my dual screen configuration. Otherwise you can gain in usability or eye candy10:09
luisachocobanana,  and I can actually watch YouTube videos without it being wacky :P (person talking slow...then too fast like you are fast forwarding)     I will remember this fix, in case someone asks the same thing I did ^_^10:09
norpan111Now, is there a way to disable those ugly black borders that traces a window when minimized?10:09
pankohello, is there any pidgin plugin for mass messaging?10:09
zeebleits like dark chocolate packaged in shiny wrapper10:09
cube_TOGGI3: alright. well i installed easy peasy on it. and with that comes this sftware called eee-config. now i wanted to install eee-control, but i cant, because that requires to uninstall eee-config, and uninstalling that uninstalls the package easy peasy, which i believe would totally screw up my system. what i want to do eventually is to be able to turn on/off wifi and bluetooth10:09
zeeblein which application do you see an ugly black border?10:09
chocobananaluisa: yea, you should be able to browse pretty much any Flash website now10:09
dravenrts, what are you upgrading from and why do you need karmic? it's alpha and should only be used if you're participating in the alpha/need the changes included10:09
norpan111chocobanana,  yes i noticed the same when trying to connect me tv to my computer..compiz mess it up10:09
TOGGI3most likely you should be fine removing it and installing eee-control10:09
TOGGI3I dont see a reason the system would fail to work without eee-config10:10
norpan111zeeble,  every window i minimize, there is black tails after window10:10
TOGGI3but again keep in mind I dont own an ee10:10
TOGGI3I dont think theres anything too special about htem10:10
rtsis karmic10:10
zeeblenorpan111: huh weird. never saw it10:10
TOGGI3in terms of things breaking10:10
rameshwoguys...  its only for 64 bit . will it work in 32 bit ? probably not ????10:10
norpan111zeeble,  try minimize a window, wich ever.. and youll see it :P10:10
rameshwoi mean the server edtition..10:10
chocobanananorpan111: those black borders trailing the minimizing are from metacity... Not sure how to get rid of them. Probably in gconf-editor10:10
cube_TOGGI3: yeah yeah. but, when i wanna deinstall eee-config in synaptic, it wants to remove "easy peasy" as well.10:10
norpan111chocobanana,  but you have them as well?10:10
TOGGI3try with aptitude?10:11
zeeblenorpan111: no idea. i dont see any dirty black border10:11
chocobanananorpan111: that's standard in any Gnome installation with Compiz disabled10:11
zeeblewell, not unless you post a screenshot and tell what10:11
TOGGI3I would just let it10:11
TOGGI3as long as it doesnt touch anything that makes the system work10:11
TOGGI3and I dont think any of htat does10:11
norpan111chocobanana,  yeah, can it be disabled somehow?10:11
zeebleuse a different metacity theme then10:11
zeebleyou can find a bunch at gnome-look.org10:11
dravenrts please post in channel, no karmic is not a bad version, its just not stable yet. a normal end user shouldn't use it yet.10:11
zeeblewhich doesnt have borders10:11
rameshwo guys...canonical says  its only for 64 bit . will it work in 32 bit ? probably not ????10:12

zeeblerts: karmic is NOT for use yet. things break. today, audacity is broken, i think10:12
norpan111zeeble,  what is metacity? is it just the theme of the window boarders?10:12
cube_TOGGI3: hmm idk. i already screwed up my system yesterday by updating the 8.11 underneath my easy peasy to ubuntu 9.04, and i had to reinstall everything all over again10:12
zeeblenorpan111: metacity is the software that takes care of the GUI. the window borders, etc10:12
zeeblenorpan111: you can apply multiple themes. and metacity will take care of all the looks, minimizing, etc10:13
TOGGI3not sure then, you may want to post on the forums10:13
TOGGI3theres bound to be another eee user10:13
norpan111zeeble,  ok. cus no mather the theme, the trace is still there.. but i will check it out.. BAThroom brb10:13

Crazy|Onesonium should i read up partitioning on ubuntu for more information?  i have searched on google for more information, but my searching sklills are very limited10:21
norpan111chocobanana,  do you live with the black borders? or did you also disable it?10:21
* Jay will change his name to JayZ10:22
=== Jay is now known as JayZ
soniumdo you know what filesystem you ps3 requires?10:22
chocobanananorpan111: I actually like them because they help in show where did the window go to in the task bar10:22
norpan111chocobanana,  I miss the zoom effect and so on =/10:22
Crazy|OneFAT32 i believe sonium10:23
chocobanananorpan111: Me too, that would be my preferred choice but I need the 2 screens more than that10:23

chocobanananorpan111: which graphics card do you have?10:24
SandGorgoni have two windows partitions  - now depending on which one i mount first, they get pathnames of "/media/disk" and "/media/disk-1". I want someway of assigning paths which are constant, so that my scripts dont break down. How do i do this?10:25
norpan111chocobanana,  geforce 8200M10:25
norpan111Its an integrated card10:25
chocobanananorpan111: which driver are you using?10:25
soniumCrazy|One: the problem is that you can't use the ubuntu system on your external drive while modifining it's paritiontion. So you have to boot from an ubuntu CD and use gparted to shrink the partition. In the now empty space create an new fat32 partition then10:25
un|matrixwhat's the best RSS reader for Gnome?10:25
norpan111chocobanana,  the recomended (180) Nvidia10:25

chocobanananorpan111: but is that the latest or the one from the Hardware drivers configuration thingy?10:26
ThorBHow Do I uninstall the games that comes with Ubutnu Jaunty? * & @10:26
soniumCrazy|One: the one thing you have to care is to never move the partitons starting position. So just reduce it at the partition's end10:26
norpan111chocobanana,  its the one from hardware drivers config...10:26
norpan111I tought that was the newest10:26
