navatwoSo I am having issues installing the UNR on my new netbook. I have the flash drive created but when I boot off it, it asks for my language, I pick install then it goes to a blank screen with the white cursor flashing. :(00:02
GeekSquidshawn146|ubuntu: gksudo nautilus /media00:02
ActionParsnipnavatwo: did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded?00:02

dannyLopezhow can i see the manager of the sound?00:07
ActionParsnip!sound | dannyLopez00:07
ubottudannyLopez: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  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 !mp3.00:07

ActionParsnipshawn146|ubuntu: linux is VERY case sensitive, so if it's SYSTEM32, it is different to System3200:08
shawn146|ubuntuit says System32 in the ls00:08

kn100peytoniumnitrate, where did you get this theme from?00:11
SupertankerHmm, while I'm here, here's an odd problem: Every once in awhile, OpenOffice will take a *VERY* long time to start--the progress bar on the splash screen reaches 100% but it sits there, two-five minutes or so, then finally pops up my document. But if I open subsequent documents they open right up00:11
SupertankerAny idea what this is?00:11

Starcraftmazterhello, i've just disabled my ati prop. driver due to problems with dual head displays, and how it doesnt show up in hardware drivers. What could be the reason for this?00:16
jkochActionParsnip: it shows that it is the intel driver, but my video is still a bit laggy to the point where i can't even watch a video on youtube00:16
kn100ActionParsnip, I've always thought a very basic yahoo answers type system would be a good way of providing support00:16

kn100ActionParsnip, What I envision is a very basic page with something along the lines of "So you're having a Ubuntu problem, please describe it below" <textbox> <submit button> - user then sent to an ajax page that essentially loads solutions as people answer the question, and on the other side is a searchable page that anyone else can go to and answer these questions00:20
rookslangvann, check dmesg, see if there are some anomalies such as setting interface up and down on its own, it might be result of bad cable00:20

shawn146|ubuntuok i did chntpw -l SAM00:22
shawn146|ubuntuwhat do i do next?00:22
kn100shcherbak, more readable, much simpler, not as scary looking, and cross project00:22
langvannprobably a result of the music having issues playing00:22
kn100shcherbak, would probably tie it in to the ubuntu one accounts if that's possible00:23
langvannrooks: I'm gonna go buy a new ethernet card. The one i have I suspect is broken.00:23
XiaolinDraconisnit-wit, i extracted the zip file and made my own grub.cfg00:23
kn100shcherbak, and it would be the kind of thing that's linked in the 'help' menu of programs, just a 1 purpose system for getting support for anything00:23
nawkwanSo I'm about to create a USB drive using the Universal USB Installer as described on the official Ubuntu websiute00:23
rookslangvann, could be, for my setup i got two gigabit intel cards since my motherboards dont work well00:23
XiaolinDraconisnit-wit, i sudo installed grub then extracted the iso and made a menu entry for it00:24
nit-witXiaolinDraconis, you might try the bootscript to look at it00:24
kn100shcherbak, also we could build up a large db of questions and answers and compare every question asked to that db and try to provide automated answers based on that00:24
langvannrooks: Two? for load balancing?00:24
XiaolinDraconisnit-wit, bootscript?00:24
rookslangvann, but i think dmesg would be full of warrnings if its the cards, maybe you have something with cable, like its bend too hard00:24
nawkwanSo when I further read about Persistence on http://www.pendrivelinux.com/what-is-persistent-linux/00:25
rookslangvann, one for server, one for desktop, i did such setup like in 2006 when such things were new, and gigabit switches were $$$$$00:25
shaggy3I have a simple question, I have spent weeks setting up my server, now that everything is working on it, I am wanting to create a image of the HDD and burn it to CD/DVD (depending what is needed) is there a way I can do this in ubuntu 10.10 server?00:25
nawkwanIt says that "Typically a separate Persistent storage space (persistent overlay) is used in conjunction with a compressed Live Linux OS."00:25
nit-witXiaolinDraconis, it is for install mainly but it will tell you where the mbr is looking etc.http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/00:25

mitzedhello00:32
GeekSquidmitzed: firstly , have patience .... secondly ... System>Preferences>Startup Applications00:32
mitzedi get something like this: you dont have privileges00:34
JameswstubbsDoes it ask you to enter a password?00:34
mitzedyes00:35
JameswstubbsAre you entering the correct password for the current user?00:35
aillhi guys I am trying to remove a default /home partition my web host gave me, I just want it to be part of regular "/" could anyone tell me how to do this?00:35
mitzedbut  when i put the correct  pass00:35
mitzedit promp me  with a message00:36
smwaill, why would you do that?00:36
aillbecause i find having 20 partitions eating up space silly and it will restrict me later im sure00:36
mitzedthat this account user dont hve  sufficient privileges00:37
JameswstubbsAill would a symlink do? Ln /home / ?00:37
smwaill, for servers, it makes sense to separate stuff.00:37
Gartralaill, theres a HUGE security risk in making your /home at / are you absolutly SURE you want to do that?00:37
smwGartral, he does not want too do that00:37
Jameswstubbsmitzed: You could try using root00:38
smwhe wants it part of the / partition00:38

JameswstubbsSudo passwd root00:38

ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo00:39
JameswstubbsRem00:39
GeekSquidaill: webhost? ... I think you are confused ... your /home/username partition on a webhost is where you store your data... everything else you don't have privlidges to write to00:39

GeekSquidpiercedwater: filename convention ... Apple Talks Like This ..... Linux/ \Escapes/ \Like/ \This And\ Windows\ Escapes\ Like \This ..... and spaces in files are a problem between os's especially when working with NTFS ... if it was an ext3/4 drive you wouldn't have the problem00:49

ScutumJamesWStubbs, u think kubuntu would be a better option?01:00
JamesWStubbsKDE is good, it's arguably pretty heavy, but It has a similar user experience to Windows in some respects01:01

JamesWStubbsjuniour I wouldn't think so, I believe wubi uses a virtual hard disk and uses MBR as it's bootloader01:04
JamesWStubbsjumbers But installing from DVD,using the installer application would take you through partitioning01:05

sharkoderJamesWStubbs: i have an integrated nvidia card. i removed nvidia related packages but still no luck even replacing x.conf with failsafe one01:07
ZykoticK9sharkoder, have you tried without an xorg.conf?01:07
sharkoderjust removing it?01:07
Doinkleluxurymode, in startup, goto options.  it has an option to remember which apps, test it to see if it remembers location01:08
JamesWStubbssharkoder, you could mv xorg.conf xorg.conf.backup01:08

chelzhow would one, with NetworkManager, have different automatic static IP settings based on which physical ethernet network i'm plugged into?01:08
luxurymodeDoinkle: right. as i said, still new to linux so not sure what the command is for, say, xchat. not familiar with file sys yet..01:09
sharkoderJamesWStubbs: i generated several times a new xorg, tried failsafe one, tried new one01:09
Blue11chelz: that's usually done by the router01:09
JamesWStubbschelz you could do it with the ifconfig from the terminal or set up /etc/interfaces using a text editor01:09
ZykoticK9chelz, i doubt that is possible - how would the ethernet card know which network you where on?01:09
Blue11chelz: called "static dhcp reservation" based on the mac address01:09
chelzZykoticK9: mac of the gateay maybe01:09
JamesWStubbschelz as Blue11 said it would need to be set up on the router aswell01:10
chelzBlue11: whenever i've done static ip stuff on a dhcp network, i just set the static ip then it kind of works01:10
luxurymodeDoinkle: is it usr/bin/xchat?01:10
chelzi just make sure to set static ips that the router won't give out01:10
chelzi was afraid i'd have to mess with /etc/interfaces ;/01:10
Doinkleluxurymode, hint: right click on the applications bar, edit menus, then goto properties of the applications for clues. :)01:10
ZykoticK9luxurymode, it would need to start from a / so /usr/bin/xchat for example01:10
Blue11chelz: static dhcp reservation is based on the mac address of the port connectiing to it - it sees that mac address on the network, and automagically gives it the same ip address everytime - it's what makes port forwarding work.01:11
JamesWStubbsBlue11 The interface would still need to request the Ip though won't it?01:11
chelzBlue11: ah that does sound pretty nice. i don't think my router supports that though01:11
juniouri hve memory card of 2gb can i install ubuntu in that01:11
luxurymodeDoinkle: thanks. looks like command is just "xchat." Does that make sense?01:11
Blue11JamesWStubbs: sure it does a dhcp request, but the router knows when it sees that mac adress it gets this particular ip address01:12
bastidrazorjuniour: yes01:12
Doinkleluxurymode, yes thats correct.. the reason is because xchat is in your environment path01:12

Then i get a blue screen which asks me to verify a command line extracted from the legacy GRUB menu.lst -- the problem is that this line is blank -- should I leave it blank or type something clever in it ??01:39
nassersharkoder: ;) i'm not english so i'm not used to talking using abbreviations!01:39
Jordan_Udorbin: Leave it blank.01:40

ZykoticK9!anyone | Dazza7101:40
ubottuDazza71: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?01:40
ionwind_i cant goo true with this testdisk01:41
JamesWStubbsZykoticK9 BURNED!01:41
Dazza71ok i cant get my usb drive to show up when i am in vbox01:41
JamesWStubbs:)01:41
Jordan_Uionwind_: Is english your first language?01:41
ZykoticK9Dazza71, are you using the VBox direct from Oracle or the one in the ubuntu repository?01:41
dorbinJordan_U: should I install GRUB on / or /boot ??01:41
ionwind_no español01:42
ionwind_jajaja01:42
ZykoticK9Dazza71, the Ubuntu one - VBox-OSE doesn't support USB01:42
ionwind_can u spanish??01:42
Jordan_Udorbin: Neither, you shouldn't install grub to a partition.01:42
Dazza71i think its oracle version01:42
ZykoticK9Dazza71, how did you install it?01:42
Dazza71from website01:42
Jordan_Udorbin: Install to the mbr, like "sda" and *not* to a partition like "sda1".01:42
dorbinJordan_U: that's what I meant - I have a root partition (/) and a boot partition (/boot)01:42
dorbinJordan_U: OK01:43
MadDog1Encountering errors when upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04; what's the apt error "E: Internal Error, Could not perform immediate configuration (2) on mountall" about, or how should I go about resolving it? :)01:43
ZykoticK9Dazza71, ya - that's the PUEL (or somthing) version then - that should support USB.  There is a USB icon in the bottom of the VBox window - if you mouse click on it does it give an option to mount the USB drive?01:43
dorbinJordan_U: But then why have a seperate /boot partition??01:43
JamesWStubbsMadDog1 Use fuser to find out which process is using a mounted disk, then use killall or top to kill the pid of that process01:44
luxurymodeHow do i install icon theme? I ran command for PPA repo, but dont see any changes...01:44
Jordan_Udorbin: A separate /boot partition is primarily used as a way of working around a type of BIOS bug.01:44
Dazza71it shows my usb drive in the settings but soon as i start my vbox no usb drive is available01:44
ZykoticK9Dazza71, what about at the bottom of the vbox window (that has your Ubuntu VM running inside it?)01:45
MackbetThe game is already installed ready to start, when i launch it the application told me to put in the cd, cd is in but don't load01:45
JamesWStubbsDazza71 There's a menu called devices i think so, devices>removablestorage>Usbdevice>enable01:45
xangualuxurymode: you drag the icon theme to the appearence window01:45
dorbinJordan_U: Well - it worked like a charm. THank you for your help.01:45
GeekSquidluxurymode: adding a ppa makes the ppa available to apt-get ... use apt-get update to get the repos into cache, then search for icons in aptitude01:45
JamesWStubbsDazza71 I think that's the way it is anyway, been a while since I used it01:45
Jordan_Udorbin: You're welcome.01:45
skorvhey youz guyz.... anyway to make squid not to cash specific ip?01:45
MadDog1I'm not really sure how to go about doing that... running "sudo fuser -am /dev/disk/by-uuid/b10c2cb7-a97d-42f5-b183-efd0249ed06" outputs only "/dev/disk/by-uuid/b10c2cb7-a97d-42f5-b183-efd0249ed068:" , for instance. :|01:46

mecoI just tried playing both tuxracer and urban terror, but neither worked very well. Tux played at about 2FPS and was extremely jerky and quite unresponsive. Urban terror had big black flickering squares of various sizes and positions popping up all of the time. I suppose that means my PC isn't equipped to play such games?01:49
GeekSquidionwind: excepto estos ladrones sólo hablan Inglés ... translate.google.com es mi amigo01:49

wersi'm going to dual boot this new 128gb MacBook Air with Ubuntu. what Ubuntu partition size would you recommend? is /home partition still logical on a Mac?01:50
Dazza71can I access files from the unbuntu side via vbox ?01:50
mecoZykoticK9: No, but it's sure to be an old cheap one.01:50
ZykoticK9meco, from a terminal "lspci | grep -i vga" would tell you.01:50
luxurymodeGeekSquid: awesome. thanks a lot01:50
mecoZykoticK9:  Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)01:51
ZykoticK9meco, intel graphics aren't ideal for gaming i'm affraid ;)01:51
mecoZykoticK9: I'll just stick to playing Facebook games then.. Oh well!01:52
GeekSquidMackbet: you cannot install a windows game into linux natively, and chances are it will not run in WINE either... Linux isn't really ready for gaming... we are getting there and in the next couple of years things will change, but for now you'll need a windows machine to run/install it01:52

JamesWStubbsmeco Just my two cents01:55

GeekSquidquentusrex_: SLAMPP maybe ... http://slampp.abangadek.com/info/ ... you could turn on the ssh server via http01:56

ZykoticK9Gartral, you might want to ask in the #ubuntuone channel01:58
GeekSquidGartral: strange, is it trying to use the wrong eth? or perhaps you should reinstall ubuntu-one01:58
Mackbetthere is a task on ubuntu like "task manager on windows" to terminate stucked application?02:00

MadDog1Rather stuck here. I'm trying to resolve the error from apt "E: Internal Error, Could not perform immediate configuration (2) on mountall. Running mountall manually the problem seems to be in the swap; using swapon/swapoff has no effect on the error.02:08
MadDog1I don't know how to use lsof or fuser to see what might be causing problems, though I have tried "sudo fuser -am /dev/disk/by-uuid/b10c2cb7-a97d-42f5-b183-efd0249ed06" and "sudo fuser -am /dev/sda5"; both just output the name followed by a colon, I'm not sure if that means anything important.02:08

chrisA1Hm. New data points: selecting all the alternative options (noacpi etc) gets it to say OK, but then it freezes after that. Also apparently this machine only has 512M of ram.02:24
GeekSquidchrisA1: have you tested the disk?02:24

cody_Hey, Is the Klamav update supposed to take a long time and the scan supposed to take under a minute?02:25
chrisA1No, just an old cheap Intel mobo and case for like $75.02:25
cody_the only thing it says it "Hint: The Database directory must be writable for UID 1000 or GID 1000"02:26
smwcody_, it means the OS won't let it read the file. You need to change the owner or the permissions.02:27
GeekSquidchrisA1: there are lots of options, (text commands) that can be entered at boottime that are not part of the F6, but "cheap" of course doesn't always mean it will work with linux... another point, you might try an older version, as it might support the board better... other than that IDK02:27

cody_at least I don't think so02:28
suxsHello everyone. I'm having issues installing ubuntu and windows xp on the same machine. I don't want to reinstall windows, I tried installing ubuntu 5 times and I still can't boot to ubuntu. Any ideas?02:29
GeekSquidcody_: are you running the update as sudo?02:29
PoshepocketI've downloaded dropbox installation package/file thingy. How do I install it? seems as if sudo apt-get doesn't work?02:29
cody_no02:29
cody_how do I do that?02:29
GeekSquid!sudo |cody_02:29
ubottucody_: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo02:29

cody_ah, kk02:29
xanguaPoshepocket: followed the instructions at dropbox site¿02:29
icarus-csuxs, did you tell ubuntu to install boot loader to MBR ?02:30

lbokenhi all i install a ubuntu 10.10 ona pc as server (mysql,icecast,ftp,apache,file sharing server ect) on the pc i have 2 hdd 120gig  and a 250 gigi would like to know what would be the best partitionning (what hd to install my os, and all that where to mount also the swap configuration )02:40
w0bb1ymy hdd partitioing setup is /boot = ext4, 150M, /root = lvm, 5G, tmp = lvm, 2G, swap = 4G02:43
w0bb1ysometimes I also separate var and var/log onto lvm "partitions" also02:43
w0bb1ythat way you can use the lvm to resize and juggle disk space if you start to run low anywhere02:43
lbokenw0bb1y what is lvm?  cause i dont see that option  in the formating02:45
w0bb1yLogical Volume Management...... you need to setup the partitions as LVM partitions02:46
w0bb1ybut in a pinch you can use the same sizes for raw partitions02:46
ZykoticK9lboken, lvm is used by default in Fedora, but non-standard in Ubuntu world.  I'm not saying that w0bb1y's suggest is bad in any way - just that it's non-standard.02:47
w0bb1ylvm is an install option only on the alternative install cd I see now....02:47
lbokenah ok i dont have the  that option  so i can use it lol i dont ahve the alternative install cd02:48
w0bb1ylvm allows you to resize the partitions and re-allocate space available on hard drives02:48
lbokenk02:48
w0bb1yif you are not using lvm then I would set boot=150M, root=5-15G, tmp=2G var=2-5G and the rest for home or where your main data storage will be (eg /var/www )02:49
rinku_kokiriwhy does my vlc have a pagan satan hat on it?02:49
rinku_kokirii wish to have this effin satan hat removed from my vlc player02:49
lbokenk thanks w0bb1y02:49
w0bb1ynp ....02:49
ZykoticK9rinku_kokiri, are you using ubuntu-se by any chance?02:50
rinku_kokirii doubt it02:50
rinku_kokirii'm using ubuntu desktop02:50
rinku_kokiribut i installed vlc like day before yesterday02:50
ZykoticK9rinku_kokiri, ok just checkin'.  I have no idea - i don't use VLC much.02:51
rinku_kokiriand it's got the dumb christmas satan hat on it02:51
xanguarinku_kokiri: stop that02:51
trismrinku_kokiri: it's just an easter egg for the holiday season, it'll go away eventually, or you could compile it out02:51
tintumonis there anybody02:51
icarus-clboken, what's good with LVM is that you could join volume on different hard drives as ONE big partition02:51
rinku_kokiriaah so i'm forced to celebrate the pagan holidays02:51
rinku_kokirithanks a lot ubuntu02:51
ZykoticK9rinku_kokiri, santa - not satan I take it?02:52
lbokenw0bb1y does it mather whish hd as wat fonction on it? like should i put swap, boot and root on the hd1 and the  var and the rest of  the data space on my other hd? or  my swap would be better if its on the 250 instead of 12002:52
tintumonrinku_kokiri:hello02:52
w0bb1ymaybe not .... http://www.av1611.org/othpubls/santa.html02:52
Jezekalright im trying to generate an openssl key02:52
Jezekbut when i enter in the command it just shows a > and a blinking cursor02:53
ZykoticK9lboken, unless you have a specific reason to use multiple partitions - i'd recommend against it.02:53
=== PhonicUK is now known as PhonicUK[Sleep]
w0bb1yonly really requirement (as far as I am concerned) is that boot and root(/) of the first drive in the system02:53
bonhofferis there an undelete in ubuntu?02:53
lbokenZykoticK9 i have 2 hd so i have to use multiple partitions at least 2 lol02:54
bonhofferi just removed a directory i didn't want to02:54
ZykoticK9Jezek, there is a problem with your command - it's not complete.  You can use Ctrl+c to close the > prompt.02:54
Jezekhrm02:54
icarus-clboken, i would use LVM to join both hard drives. and partition with it. that way you could have a big continuous partition for data (250GB + (120GB - OS size) )02:54
ZykoticK9lboken, that's true - but separate boot tmp is really not required - adds a lot of complexity02:54
Jezeki copied code here02:54
w0bb1yit adds some complexity and is a saviour when an errant process fills tmp or var/log I found02:55
Jezekhttp://code.google.com/apis/gdata/docs/auth/authsub.html#openssl02:55
w0bb1ynothing worse than var/log filling up or tmp and other services failiing02:55
ZykoticK9Jezek, you could try typing "eof" which should finish the command - but i still think there is an issue02:55
icarus-clboken, if you use LVM, you could make a 370GB 'partition'  out of your 250GB & 120GB hard disks.  but separating OS & data on different partitions is a good idea.02:56
Jezekoh nvm02:56
Jezekupdated openssl and now it works02:56
lbokenicarus-c i dont have lvm option on the installation02:56
ermiBRhi people02:58
lbokenso the data is mainly on var and on home isnt that right ? icarus or w0bb1y02:58
icarus-clboken, anywhere you want it02:58
w0bb1yyes... var and home represent data02:58
w0bb1ygenerally speaking02:58
grpaceHello.  I'm having great problems getting MySQL to connect.  I keep getting the mysqld.sock error.  Could I get some help ?02:59
lbokenok thanks so ill put var and home on my biger hd and the rest on the first, thanks for your help guys02:59
icarus-cwell but /var  also includes log file, cache, and many other stuff02:59
lbokenyes but then its the one who vary the size the most still   so it a good idea to have it on the biger disk03:00
icarus-clboken, if you ask me. i would make one partition on the big hard disk,  and mount -t bind  to proper place on the OS03:00
=== shentino_ is now known as Shentino
rusivigrpace: may want to redirect to #mysql03:00
w0bb1ygrpace ... type ps ax | grep mysql and see if the server it running03:00
icarus-clboken, say on the big hard disk, you have one partition, containing 2 folders "home" & "var"     then you mount -t bind these 2 folders back to /home  & /var03:00
w0bb1yit sound like the mysqld process is not running03:01
Dwade09where is the trash icons hidden at?03:01
icarus-clboken, that way you don't have to split 2 partitions and resize them like hell when you need to adjust partition size03:01
DaemonikWhere is the equivalent of grub.conf??03:01
lbokenhow do i do the -t bind? i just dont format it yet and when ubuntu is installed i do that part?03:02
ZykoticK9Dwade09, if you currently don't see a Trash on your panel, then right click - add to panel - Trash.03:02
bonhofferis there a way to undelete a directory?03:02
grpacew0bbly:  I get:  6433 pts/0    T      0:00 start mysql.  It's supposed to be starting on boot.03:02
bonhofferlooking at foremost . . . et03:02
bonhofferetc03:02
Dwade09ZykoticK9,  no i want to change the icon of the trashcan, the empty icon and the full icon.03:02
icarus-clboken, let ubuntu install on the small hard disk first. after installation, then work on the big hard disk and do the binding03:02
w0bb1ylooks like it is trying to start and has not yet started03:02
ZykoticK9Dwade09, ahh.  I have no idea.03:03
lbokenk thanks that what ill do03:03
icarus-clboken, since ubuntu installer is lacking of customization options03:03
icarus-clboken, unless you use the alternative installer03:03
w0bb1ymine shows ...  1611 ?        Ssl    9:05 /usr/sbin/mysqld03:03
kingcheese26anyone know of a place to get ceni?03:03
lbokenno i use thenormal installator03:03
w0bb1ythe start mysql usually runs as the process to start the mysql server03:03
R0b0t1Ello. I recently did the distribution upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04, and when booting, I get "Cannot find symbol grub_puts_". Note I must boot through rEFIt to get to GRUB.03:04
icarus-clboken, but the OS would use less than 20GB i suppose so you should still have spare ~100GB on the small disk :P03:04
grpacew0bbly:  The mysqld.sock file doesn't exist on the system.  Both Webmin and phpMyAdmin fails.  I've Googled the heck out of it and none of the suggestions I've found seem to work.03:05
w0bb1ydid you try doing a service mysql stop... and then service mysql start ?03:05
icarus-cgrpace, do you have mysql running?03:05
ZykoticK9!webmin > grpace03:05
ubottugrpace, please see my private message03:05
lbokenyeah i know its just that since i have that much disk on that pc and all my connector are used on my other  i have to keep the 2 disk there  so that why on my laptop ill install less space (cause on that one i want to use both linus and still windows03:05
w0bb1yalso there is a log file for mysql usually in /var/log/mysql/error.log that might indicate the problem03:06
w0bb1yI have also had similar problems when moving mysql data directory around that seems to be related to app_armour03:06
w0bb1yand even though I have resolved those issues in the past with app_armour I don't know what in the end resolved the problem03:07
R0b0t1Ello. I recently did the distribution upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04, and when booting, I get "Cannot find symbol grub_puts_". Note I must boot through rEFIt to get to GRUB.03:08
Dwade09ZykoticK9,  thanks anyways.03:10
R0b0t1Ello. I recently did the distribution upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04, and when booting, I get "Cannot find symbol grub_puts_". Note I must boot through rEFIt to get to GRUB. I believe I can fix this from my Mac partition if I could find a way to find the name of my kernel, but meh03:11

MoMowhat is the vnc package i want if I want to VNC from a windows box and control a live session on a unbuntu screen?03:15
grpacew0bbly: 3 sub-dirs, 5 files, all appear owned by mysql.03:15
grpaceI see the ibdata1 file there.03:15
w0bb1yis the partition that the mysql files on out of disk space ?03:16
grpacew0bbly: No... about 27% used.03:17
w0bb1yweird !03:17
w0bb1yis there any data in the inoodb tables in  your mysql server03:17
wasabi_i've been looking for this but still no go. how do you load raid drivers during ubuntu server setup?03:18
grpaceHaven't gotten to setting up tables, yet.03:18
wasabi_ubuntu 10.10 doesn't seem to recognize the highpoint r2640 raid card03:18
grpaceAlso, on the ibdata1 file, I can clearly see owner read/write privileges.03:18
grpacew0bbly:  There's also another error showing: /usr/sbin/mysqld: Can't find file: './mysql/plugin.frm' (errno: 13) [ERROR] Can't open the mysql.plugin table. Please run mysql_upgrade to create it.03:20
w0bb1yhave you run mysql_upgrade ?03:21
=== breadcrumb_ is now known as breadcrumb
grpaceNo.  Wasn't sure about that one.  It's a fresh instll.03:21
w0bb1yif it is a fresh install then something major has gone wrong during the install03:22
w0bb1yif there is not data in the innodb tables in your mysql server you coudl try removing the innodb files (ibdata and iblog)03:23
w0bb1yand then restart mysql and let it recreate them03:23
w0bb1ybut this will be bad if there is data in any innodb tables in the server03:23
grpacew0bbly:  just tried mysql_upgrade...  More errors: Looking for 'mysql' as: mysql Looking for 'mysqlcheck' as: mysqlcheck. mysql_upgrade: Can't create/write to file 'sqlIiwRSW' (Errcode: 13). FATAL ERROR: Failed to create temporary file for defaults.03:24
w0bb1ydid you "sudo su -" before running the update script ?03:25
grpacew0bbly: No.  I'll try that.03:26
w0bb1yok... that might be it03:26
WillowRabbitserver irc.anthrochat.org03:26
w0bb1yalso if the disks are "slowish" it may take a little time for mysql to create the innodb tables and the server will not be able to be connected to until after the innodb tables are created03:27
grpacew0bbly: tried it.  Got error: 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) when trying to connect. FATAL ERROR: Upgrade failed.03:27

comulentactually, gtg! BRB in 15 mins... sorry lol03:31

icarus-cwolfric, where foobah is the program you are looking for03:33
w0bb1yyou can still stop and start the mysql from the command line (as root)03:34
wolfricicarus-c: right but i said download03:34
w0bb1yjust stop the service (although it is not running) then blow away the files in /var/lib/mysql03:34
w0bb1yand all the directories under there too03:34
wolfricicarus-c: I want the whole collection of man pages so if i don't have access to the internet and want to look up a program i havne't got installed, it's there03:34
w0bb1ythen do a "service mysql start"03:34
grpacew0bbly: OK.  I'll try the uninstall/reinstall route.  Thanks for all your help !!03:35
w0bb1ythat should trick it to recreate all the initial files03:35

BluefeverQuick question. I turned off my computer about 2 hours ago, and just turned it on again, and at startup Ubuntu said it was checking the disk for errors. It never does this, and I can't think of anything that would have caused it. Is this some kind of routine thing every so many startups?04:33
coz_plc90210,  ah ok did you open synaptic package manager?04:34
plc90210yep04:34
DoinkleBluefever, i believe so04:34
coz_plc90210,  ok click  "Settings"  then "Repositories"04:34
ZykoticK9Bluefever, every 30 mounts or X many days it auto checks04:34
coz_plc90210,   second tab "Other Software"  make sure all are ticked04:34
Bluefever@Doinkle. O.K. thanks guys appreciate it! :D04:34
coz_plc90210,   close out of the  repository dialog and hit the RELOAD   button04:35
R0b0t1GeekSquid: No, still get the same error. I'm just going to burn another 9.10 disk04:35
plc90210I got some error after clicking reload04:35
coz_plc90210,  what is the error?04:35
plc90210its a bunch of lines, most starting with "W:: Failed to fetch" and then some links to the ubuntu website04:36
GeekSquidplc90210:  you will need to hardwire to the network for anything to work, if wireless is not working04:36

comulenthey guys. i've installed pastebinit, but i think i'm doing it wrong... and i'm feeling a little more hopeless the more i try this =P04:38
coz_plc90210,   let me see if I can download that package hold on04:38
comulenti've tried dmesg pastebinit -b04:38
Gneacomulent: like this:  dmesg | pastebinit04:38
comulentand it says invalid option04:38
Gneacomulent: that's a pipe, btw: shift + \04:38
alifokey, thank04:38
comulentUsage: dmesg [-c] [-n level] [-r] [-s bufsize]04:38
comulentoh04:38
comulentof course!04:38
Gneacomulent: that's the nice thing about unix/linux: you can take the output of one command and pass it directly to another command04:39
comulentyeah, that's sexy04:40
Gneaso, if it works right, it should just output a URL04:40
coz_plc90210,   i have that package hold on I will put on dropbox04:41
comulenthmmmm04:42
comulentworking on it04:42
comulentthis is tricky but fun to learn.04:42
GeekSquidcomulent: in terminal Ctrl-Shift-C to copy04:42
coz_plc90210,   are you still here?04:43
plc90210yeah04:43
coz_plc90210,    ok see if you can download this   http://www.speedyshare.com/files/25984214/bcmwl-kernel-source_5.60.48.36_bdcom-0ubuntu3_i386.deb04:43
comulentGeekSquid: it seems that when i try dmesg | pastebinit, it just returns the line and i'm in pastebinit. but i don't know how to exit it04:43
pksadiqcoz_: the same file is in ubuntu repo, I think that link is faster and better04:44
comulentalso, when i just run dmesg by itself, there's so much data that i can't scroll up to the beginning.04:44

econAnyone think they could help me with editing a config file?04:44
coz_plc90210,      http://www.speedyshare.com/files/25984214/bcmwl-kernel-source_5.60.48.36_bdcom-0ubuntu3_i386.deb04:45
secretary_linuxecon: which config file?04:45
coz_plc90210,   just right click that and "open with browser"   if you are using xchat04:45
GeekSquidcomulent : you should get a line that says http://pastebin.ca/numbers .. and a prompt04:46
econits for privoxy. I've never edited a config file before, so this might be a really newb question but i'm reading the documentation on how to set it up here   https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Privoxy04:46
econand in the part where he says to jump to line 661 or whatever, I don't see any actual line numbers/don't know how to jump anywhere. all I see are the # comments talking about the config file04:47
Gneacomulent: you just need to wait for it to do its thing04:47
coz_econ,  is this opened in a text editor?04:47
Gneacomulent: if it hasn't returned to the prompt, it's still trying to talk to the server04:47
GeekSquidecon: if you type gksudo gedit /path/to/config/file you will see the line numbers in the bottom row04:48
plc90210coz_: ok, I downloaded the file to my usb04:48
econcoz, i'm looking at this in the terminal04:48
comulentGeekSquid: Success!!  http://paste.ubuntu.com/548995/04:48
coz_plc90210,   ok  you should just have to  open a terminal ...cd to the location of that deb package     sudo dpkg -i  nameofpackage.deb04:48
econgeeksquid, ok thanks, I'll try that04:49
plc90210coz_: right now, i'm using my other laptop, not the laptop with ubuntu04:50
coz_plc90210,  ah ok04:50
plc90210i don't have internet on the ubuntu laptop04:50
comulentGeekSquid: lsusb -> http://paste.ubuntu.com/548997/        lspci -> http://paste.ubuntu.com/548998/04:51
coz_plc90210,   oh yeah  sorry ...didnt even cross my mind04:51
coz_plc90210,   just move that from the usb drive onto the desktop of ubuntu then  install it04:51
=== benoit_ is now known as Guest10035
comulentGeekSquid:  you were absolutely right. i thought i had hung or was just waiting for a further input. it was just taking a bit of time to post it i now realize.04:52
plc90210another problem, I put the usb in to my laptop (with ubuntu, but it's not showing up on the desktop04:52
GeekSquidcomulent: something on your usb bus is causing a problem, I cannot see a complete dmesg, just the errors from USB, ... what is plugged into usb?04:52
comulentlspci and lsusb were a lot quicker than dmesg04:52
plc90210nvm, it showed up now04:53
comulenti'm charging my android phone, it's just set to charge though, so it shouldn't even come up as a device if it's just drawing power.04:53
comulenti'll unplug it anyway04:53
er9ihai...04:53
GeekSquidcomulent: try a dmesg without the android plugged in04:54
plc90210coz_: should I open the package with software center or archive manager or something else?04:54
coz_plc90210,  is it on the desktop of ubuntu?04:54
Gneacomulent: maybe like this:  cat /var/log/dmesg | pastebinit04:54
plc90210yeah04:55
coz_plc90210,   open a terminal04:55
comulentokay guys, thanks. i'll try that.04:55
plc90210ok04:55
econGeekSquid, ok I can see the line numbers now, they opened in another window. The thing is though, this whole thing just seems to be instructions about how the config file works, not the actual config file. I don't know if I'm missing something or the author skipped a step without explaining it. Once again I'm looking here  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Privoxy04:55
coz_plc90210,   in that terminal type       cd  Desktop    make sure it is an upper case "D"04:55
plc90210next?04:55
coz_plc90210,   now  type      sudo  dpkg -i  and the first three letters of the package name then hit "tab"  tocomplete  the name04:56
coz_plc90210,   then hit enter04:56
zetherooseems to me that whenever Flash is used the browser, no matter which one, starts crapping itself big time ... :(04:56
comulentwhoops. i did it without the URL i used before. Got a different domain now -> http://pastebin.com/CcwffxF204:57
coz_zetheroo,  even in firefox?04:57
jkochDoes anyone know when the intel intergrated graphics won't be so laggy?04:57
coz_zetheroo,  is this 32 or 64 bit?04:57
zetheroocoz_: especially in FF04:57
GeekSquidecon: and I quote "    This howto  explains how to get Privoxy going. Although the config file is 1075  lines, its worth noting that 1022 of them are comments, and 38 are  blank! (And we only edit 1!!) "04:57
coz_zetheroo,  oooo04:57
plc90210I hit enter and typed my password, and now it says "dpkg: status database area is locked by another process"04:57
zetheroocoz_: both ... I have this issue in 32 and 64 bit systems04:57
coz_zetheroo,  is it an extreme lag or just a slight jerky behavior when watching video ?04:58
coz_zetheroo,  also is this a desktop or laptop?04:58
GeekSquidcomulent: now that that works ... what are we trying to fix... Please ask your origional question again, my memory is fried and filled with a ton of use less junk04:58

zetheroocoz_:  the whole browser starts freezing up ... not just the video04:59
zetheroocoz_: laptop and desktop04:59
zetheroojkoch: nvidia04:59
coz_zetheroo,  oo    and is the nvidia built in on the desktop as well?04:59
econGeekSquid, ohhhh, I see. For some reason I thought all the actual lines would be at the end of the comments not interlaced, or at least would stand out more, so I missed them and thought it was all comments. Thank you!04:59
coz_zetheroo,   you may want to go into the bios and allow more memory for video  if that is possible on either ot both systems05:00
plc90210coz_: it returned an error saying "dkms is not installed"05:00
zetheroocoz_: with FF it will go grey (not responding) for a while and then come back to life ... only to be very glitchy and jittery05:00
coz_plc90210,   oooo05:00
comulentGeekSquid: When I run the Bluetooth preferences, it says that I don't have any adapters plugged in.05:00
plc90210how do i install dkms?05:00
coz_plc90210,   hold on05:00
jkochcoz_: i did that and it didn't help me and i have the same problem as him05:00
zetheroocoz_: Laptop is Intel and Desktop is nvidia05:00
coz_plc90210,  which video card on that system?05:01
zetheroocoz_: I highly doubt it's a video memory issue ... both systems have ample05:01
GeekSquidcomulent: try the fn key  thing and run lspci again05:01
coz_plc90210,  well you can try   sudo apt-get install dkms05:01
jkochzetheroo: is your laptop the dell inspiron 110005:01
zetheroo jkoch: laptop is not a dell05:01
coz_plc90210,  is it possible to hard wire that to the internet at all?05:02
zetheroo jkoch: is your browser also greying out?05:02
coz_zetheroo,  give me a link to a site you are watching flash on05:02
jkochzetheroo: yes. i have the inspiron 1100 dell laptop with a celeron processor and the intel 82845G intergrated graphics.05:02
zetheroo jkoch: do you have the dwhelper plugin installed?05:03
jkochcoz_: the flash lag is on any website, can't even watch on youtube.05:03
zetheroocoz_: go to Youtube ;)05:03
timboyanyone know how to use the ubuntu SSO from login.ubuntu.com as an openid?05:03
coz_zetheroo,  ok I am on youtube05:03
jkochzetheroo: no? what is the dwhelper05:03
zetheroojkoch: ok .. it's just an addon that allows you to download Flash video content05:04
zetheroojkoch: I was wondering if that was maybe the issue ... but obviously it's not05:04
plc90210coz_: I don't know which video card is on the system; I tried to hard wire it, but it's still not connecting05:04
coz_plc90210,    in terminal    lspci | grep -i vga     will tell you the video card05:04
zetheroojkoch: the thing is that this happens for me in FF, Chrome and Opera ... so it cannot be a browser issue05:04
comulentGeekSquid: http://paste.ubuntu.com/548999/05:04
jkochzetheroo: nope. i'm on a fresh install. i noticed that i can watch any other kind of video besides flash, but the whole operating system seems to have a little video lag as well05:05
ericinohioever since i upgraded to lucid, my fonts in browser windows don't render correctly - half of some letters are gone...anyone know where to look for a fix, having a hard time googling the issue and getting anywhere05:05
zetheroojkoch: which leaves me to believe the Flash is the culprit05:05
zetheroojkoch: what version of Flash are you using?05:05
jkochthe newest one from adobe.com05:05
coz_zetheroo,   mm if that addon is responsible try adding      video downloadhelper   << written just like that  for firefox05:05
plc90210coz_: "Intel corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)"05:06
zetheroocoz_: that's the one I have installed ;)05:06
wasabi_if i compile a raid card kernel module and place it in the /lib/modules/'uname-r'/drivers/scsi folder, does it matter what the file name is for the .ko file?05:06

luxurymodehey all. sometimes when i hover over a menu item and it should open a sub menu after a sec...it doesnt. sometimes it does sometimes it doesnt. have to move away from that item and back to get it to work. or just click it. any idea how to fix?05:06
jkochzetheroo: sounds like plc90210 has the same problem lol05:06
comulentbrb - afk - have to take a phone call =/05:07
zetheroojkoch: really? ... hmm05:07
zetheroo jkoch: whats you Flash version?05:07
joeyeyeCan someone help with grub2 and restoring a winxp partition ?05:07
jkochcoz_: it's gotta have something to do with the intergrated intel graphics and linux in general. i've found a thousand forum posts about it all over the interwebz05:07
zetheroo jkoch: mine is 10.1.102.6505:07
coz_jkoch,   I agree05:08
jkochzetheroo: 10.1.102.6505:08
coz_luxurymode,   you can speed that up  to 0  delay   but I am not sure that is the issue05:08
onelinerjoeyeye have you tried duso dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc  ?05:09
plc90210coz_: i tried installing dkms by typing "sudo apt-get install dkms" and it returned an error saying "Package dkms is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source."05:09

coz_plc90210,   do you have the original install cd in the cdplayer>?05:09
joeyeyeoneliner, I just want to walk through the steps with someone first - can you help ?05:10
coz_plc90210,  you may have to use that  as a source for the packages  although I dont know if all of t hem are on the cd05:10
plc90210coz_: no I took it out, i still have it with me though05:10
coz_plc90210,  ok stick it in the cd player and open synaptic package manager....actually it should ask if you want to use the cd as a source05:10
joeyeyeI have /dev/sda, with /dev/sda1 for ubuntu, and want to restore a clonezilla image to /dev/sda2 with winxp05:11
onelinerwell that would fire the reconfiguration of grub, simply accept without making changes, it should then at the end find your lost xp os and include it in the boot options next time you restart05:11
onelinerah05:11
onelinerway over my head :D05:11
joeyeyewill it also create the mbr for xp ?05:11
coz_luxurymode,  as I said if you want  I can help you set the delay on the menus  to   "0"05:11
coz_luxurymode,  or not as extreme  like say  "1" or so05:11
onelineri thought you wanted to recover an already installed os05:11
coz_plc90210,   did you check that cd for errors?05:12
joeyeyeoneliner, not exactly, my XP is coming from a clonezilla image I made earlier05:12
wasabi_if i compile a raid card kernel module and place it in the /lib/modules/'uname-r'/drivers/scsi folder, does it matter what the file name is for the .ko file?05:12
plc90210how do i check it for errors?05:12
coz_plc90210,   well you would have to reboot with the cd  and when  you see the accessibility logo and keyboard logo at the bottom of the screen  hit Enter  to get a menu...there you will see  check cd for errors or integrity05:13
coz_plc90210,  I am assuming this is a live cd ...yes?05:13
ubnoob<Colin969: I just logged in, what system do you have?05:13
plc90210I opened up synaptic package manager after putting the cd in and it said I have "1 broken package"05:14
coz_plc90210,  ok under the  file or  edit menu is  a listing for  "Fix broken package"   my guess is that it will remove  that file you installed hoever05:14
coz_however05:14
comulentok i'm back now. GeekSquid: forgot to mention i'm also trying Bluetooth Manager (BlueZ) and it can't run, says: BlueZ daemon is not running, blueman-manager cannot continue.05:14
plc90210what do you know... its the bcmwl-kernel-source that's the broken package05:15
GeekSquidcomulent: I am calling it a night, I hope I have helped some05:15
onelinerjoeyeye i guess you could try placing the clone uncompressed in an ntfs partitioned drive and then let grub it on the reconfigure step,.. is the clone from the same box? else prepare for driver issues05:15
comulenthey guys... my task bar on the side has gone blank. does anyone know how I can restart it without rebooting? I'm using netbook 10.1005:16
jkochzetheroo: if you do the pop out youtube player you can at least watch videos, not full screen but without skipping05:16
comulentthat's a separate issue, by the way :P05:16
coz_plc90210,  yeah I guessed that would be removed  because all of the dpenedencies have not been met05:16
zetheroojkoch: honestly never tried that ...05:16
GeekSquidcomulent: pkill gnome-panel will reset it05:16
coz_plc90210,   I would run the live cd  ...hit enter when you see those logos  and check cd integrity05:17
jkochzetheroo: try it. i just saw it on a forum and tried it and it worked for me05:17
plc90210coz_: so i should reboot with the cd inside?05:17
coz_plc90210,   yes05:17
coz_plc90210,   I assume this is also  ubuntu 10.10 .. yes?05:18
plc90210yep05:18
coz_plc90210,  ok  you should see those logos  at the bottom of the screen at some point  at which time hit Enter  to get to the menu05:19
R0b0t1Hello, I just used this article to try to fix a problem I was having: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/05/fix-symbol-grubputs-not-found-when.html Sadly, it didn't work. What now?05:19
zetheroojkoch: it plays  ... though not as smooth as it should be05:19
coz_plc90210,   I have to break here...I will try to return  a bit later.... I know many here are more capable than I am for helping with this issue05:19
plc90210coz_: ok, thanks for the help05:19
jkochzetheroo: agreed, but it's better than the intense skipping it usually does on the full site. it's better than nothing for now.05:19
R0b0t1Not I'm on a Mac which must use rEFIt, so *shrug*05:20

KM0201plc90210: ok, "used the cd".. did you use wubi, or did you boot the cd and install?06:27
plc90210boot the cd and install06:27
KM0201ok..06:27
KM0201put the cd in the drive..06:27
plc90210i did06:27
smoke_yeah men06:28
smoke_wtf06:28
smoke_xD06:28
KM0201plc90210: ok, do you see an icon on your desktop that say s"ubuntu 10.xx " or something like that?06:28
plc90210yeah06:28
KM0201plc90210: ok, double click it06:28
plc90210done, next?06:28
KM0201plc90210: before you go much further, did you install the bmcwl-kernel-source ?06:28
KM0201like it say above?06:29
plc90210tried to, but the installation failed, i have it downloaded on the desktop though06:29
KM0201plc90210: ok.. do this.06:29
KM0201plc90210: go to system/admin/synaptic package manager06:30
plc90210ok06:30
KM0201plc90210: ok... now click settings/repositories06:30
KM0201plc90210: on the first tab under settings/repositories.. make sure at the bottom the "Use CD" box is checked.06:30
secretary_linuxI recently changed the network layout on and around our main server. For some reason now the server is still able to reach itself as one of its old IP addresses. That address, for that matter that entire subnet, is not listed in /etc/network/interfaces, ifconfig, route, or arp. When I ssh to it I'm getting the same signature so I know it's the same box. How can I track down this phantom IP address?06:30
KM0201plc90210: after you've checked that box... click close, make sure the cd is in the drive, and click "reload"06:31
KM0201plc90210: you'll get errors because it can't et on the internet, but i'm not concerned about that just yet06:31
plc90210yep, i got an error after clicking reload06:32
KM0201plc90210: thats fine.. thats because you're not oonline06:32
KM0201plc90210: now, make sure the cd is in the drive06:32
KM0201and in the upper right06:32
plc90210it is06:32
KM0201do a search for bcmwl06:32
KM0201and you should see th e"kernel source" package there, right?06:32
iLinuxCan I Participate in ubuntu?06:32
plc90210yeah06:32
plc90210i see it06:33
KM0201plc90210: does it show installed?(green dot beside it?)06:33
plc90210nope06:33
KM0201iLinux: i don't see why not06:33
KM0201plc90210: right click that package and choose "mark for installation"06:33
ResQueis it safe to allow any user to start an X session. i think by default only root can start xsession and the GDM service starts it for you. but i want to start another one on a different virtual terminal so i can start a remote x session06:33
KM0201plc90210: you might get a message that it wants to "mark" some other dependencies...06:33
plc90210it won't let me click mark for installation06:33
KM0201huh?06:34
KM0201it won't let you click it?06:34
plc90210it will only let me click mark for upgrade, removal, complete removal or properties06:34
plc90210yeah, it won't let me click it, it's blacked out06:34
KM0201plc90210: if its "mark for upgrade or removal"... then it's already installed06:34
KM0201there's no green dot beside it?06:35
zetherooI am getting this odd message every time I load up FF : A username and password are being requested by http://localhost:46269. The site says: "bookmarkable-user-auth"06:35
zetheroohow can I stop this ?06:35
plc90210no, there's a grey square with an exclamation mark beside it06:35
plc90210and the ubuntu logo06:35
KM0201plc90210: did you try to install it from that package you downloaded?06:36
zetherooanother thing I am wondering is ... why is it that instead of a Ubuntu splash screen while Ubuntu is loading all I see is a black screen?06:36
KM0201zetheroo: shuttleworth hates splash screens06:36
bonjoyeehow to recover individual mpeg files deleted from a sony handycam?06:36
KM0201:)06:36
plc90210yeah, it returned an error saying i need to installed dkms of kernel i686 or something like that06:36
tioxzetheroo: Might be Plymouth being a douche. Try reinstalling it.06:36
KM0201plc90210: ok.. right click that, and choose "mark for removal06:37
zetherooKM0201: humph06:37
zetherootiox: reinstalling what exactly?06:37
plc90210ok06:37
tioxWhat version of Firefox?06:37
tioxErm...06:37
tioxUbuntu. Sorry, late.06:37
KM0201plc90210: now click Apply if you didn't already, and let it uninstall06:37
iflemazetheroo i find the proprietary drivers dont work... anything else is fine06:37
tioxI can hardly think. Anyway, try reinstalling Plymouth if you use the more current versions of Ubuntu.06:38
zetherooiflema: so depending on the gfx driver one uses you may or may not see a Ubuntu loading screen?06:38
plc90210KM0201: ok, it's uninstalled06:39
zetherootiox: 10.1006:39
KM0201plc90210: ok... now.. .again, make sure cd is in the drive06:39
KM0201and right click it06:39
KM0201and "mark for insallation"06:39
tioxYeah, Plymouth is used as the boot splash screen. Before, I think it was xsplash, but don't take my word on that.06:39
iflemazetheroo in my experience yes... non proprietary drivers work just fine.06:39
plc90210right click the cd icon, and click mark for installation? "mark for installation" isn't an option06:40
tioxI was asking in antoher channel about the user defined session. What is that about, and how can I take advantage of it?06:40
zetherooiflema: I'll test that out right now ... I have a laptop with Intel gfx ...06:40
KM0201plc90210: the cd icon?.. where'd you get that... right click bcmwl-kernel-source06:40
KM0201in synaptic06:40
plc90210oh..06:40
plc90210ok, next?06:41
KM0201plc90210: basically what we did was remove that broke ass package you installed, and now that we've added the cd repository.. you'll reinstall it, and it should pull everything off the cd for you.06:41
zetherootiox: isn't that where you save the state of your session as it is and then have the ability to boot back into it?06:41
KM0201plc90210: after you click mark for installation, click apply..06:41
tioxI am not sure, why i was asking.06:41
tioxBecause I would like to be able to change in gconf what I use as my "Panel" for the user defined session, and keep the Ubuntu Desktop Session as something in case something goes catastrophically wrong.06:42
plc90210ok, done06:42
KM0201plc90210: ok, now just to make sure it went ok06:42
KM0201in the upper right06:42
KM0201do a search for "fakeroot" and make sure it sinstalled06:42
dexikiixhey all, its been a while since i used ubby, can someone tell me a quick way to get the close/min/max buttons over to the right side of the title bar?06:42
tioxdexikiix: Couple ways.06:43
plc90210that's broken too... i'll fix it06:43
KM0201ok.06:43
tioxInstall Emerald and use that instead of GTK. Alternatively...06:43
KM0201go ahead and fix that one06:43
tioxPress alt+F2 and type in gconf-editor06:43
plc90210and patch too right?06:43
KM0201plc90210: same way we did before, remove it, mark for installation, and rreinstall06:43
KM0201plc90210: yes06:43
tioxAre you there, dexikiix06:43
tiox?06:43
KM0201plc90210: patch, fakeroot and dkms06:44
glitchdheres a question for all the linux genius's in here..06:44
dexikiixtiox: yes i was looking through gconf-editor06:44
tioxOkay, now let me figure out where to go...06:44
plc90210patch and dkms had a green dot next to them so i guess they were installed correctly06:45
tioxLook under apps/metacity and find general.06:45
KM0201plc90210: ok...06:45
plc90210ok... next step...06:45
zetheroo iflema: just booted into my Intel gfx laptop ... no Ubuntu boot screen either06:45
KM0201and fakeroot is now installed correctly?06:45
glitchdIs there a way to make a direct copy of how my system is now, so that when i do mess it up, and i will, trust me, i can just restore it to the working state instead of having to reinstall then find all the stuff i want again??06:45
dexikiixtiox: i didnt think people still used emerald :p or was that just compiz people don't use?06:45
tioxClick that, there is something called Button Layout.06:45
plc90210yeah, fakeroot is now installed correctly06:45
KM0201plc90210: ok go ahead adn close synaptic06:45
tioxReplace the current entry with menu:minimize,maximize,close06:45
KM0201plc90210: then go to system/admin/additional drivers06:45
KM0201and you should see the STA driver there06:46
=== bazyli is now known as bazyli-
tioxdexikiix: Did you follow along?06:46
plc90210ok i see it06:46
dexikiixtiox: yes, so far it switched but has not moved to the right side :p06:46
KM0201plc90210: highlight it.. and click activate06:46
=== bazyli- is now known as bazyli-away
tioxEh?06:47
KM0201plc90210: then you'll probably have to restart06:47
tioxIt should work immediately.06:47
glitchdKM0201, look at u helpin everyone i see..lol06:47
dexikiixtiox: right now those buttons are at top left, and i'd prefer top right06:47
tioxI know.06:47
KM0201glitchd: i always help in here...06:47
tioxUnder general, you found button_layout right?06:47
plc90210KM0201: there is no activate button06:47
dexikiixtiox: yes06:47
glitchdKM0201, i noticed, i was commending u, not taking a stab.06:47
KM0201plc90210: at the bottom.. you don't see "acctivate"06:47
plc90210nope06:47
KM0201glitchd: oh ok..lol06:47
plc90210only help, close, and remove06:48
KM0201plc90210: do you have the STA driver highlighted?06:48
glitchdKM0201, u have helped me on a number of occations06:48
plc90210yeah06:48
iLinux hello 06:48
tioxHang on a sec then...06:48
zetherooreinstalled plymouth but no luck still06:48
glitchd*occations06:48
tioxOkay them, try opening terminal, use command gtk-window-decorator --replace06:48
glitchdKM0201, heres a question for ya06:48
tioxthen*06:48
KM0201plc90210: try restarting... see if when you come back, you can activate that driver06:48
ox3aI want to remove Gnome environment and installing kde just customizing ubuntu 10.10. Can anyone suggest me please?06:49
glitchdKM0201, do u know if there is a way to make a backup of my os, so that when i mess it up, and i will, i can just restore it to the working state that it was in before?06:49
iLinuxox3a, just change with kubuntu06:49
glitchdKM0201, packages and all?06:49
tioxox3a: Better off installking kubuntu. But if you still want to give it a shot, just choose to install the KDE environment from synaptic.06:49
glitchdKM0201, i ask this because i have had to reinstall like 4 times in the past 2 days06:49
tioxThem, log off, and log back into your account with the KDE environment.06:49
KM0201glitchd: only way i know of to do it, would be to clone the drive.. but that would be a huge pain...06:49
dexikiixtiox: still on left side, just took out some theming06:50
KM0201not to mention, take a lot of space.06:50
tioxThis is odd...06:50
glitchdKM0201, yes, and that is not what i want to do06:50
bullgard4ox3a: Please install the KDE meta-package. After finishing you can remove GNOME packages step-by-step.06:50
tioxOkay, dexikiix, I am going to link you to a theme./06:50
KM0201glitchd: i assume you're asking for something like 'restore points' w/ the Redmond OS's06:50
glitchdKM0201, i just want to take like a snapshot of the os in the working state06:50
ox3atiox, and how to remove complete gnome?06:50
glitchdKM0201, im in ubuntu 10.0406:50
KM0201glitchd: i'm not saying there isn't... but not that i know of.06:50
glitchdKM0201, and i am just tired of setting up the same shit over and over again06:50
tioxox3a: Install Kubuntu. It'll be way easier than dealing with the removal of Gnome.06:51
tioxOr...06:51
glitchdKM0201, can u point me in the direction of a possible answer maybe?06:51
tioxGrab a Kubuntu CD image and burn the ISO to CD, boot from CD to check out KDE.06:51
nawkiflema: is usb-creator a utility specifically for creating Ubuntu Startup Disks, or any other Distro LiveUSB?06:51
glitchdKM0201, i dont care about the downloads or any of that, just the os system06:51
glitchdcan i maybe burn it to a dvd or somthing?06:51
ox3atiox, actually i do not have much idea about kbuntu that if i miss anything in kubuntu06:51
KM0201glitchd: honestly the best way to do that, would probably be to have /home on a separate partition...06:52
tioxdexikiix: Go here: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Ambiance_R+%28Ambiance+Right+Side%29?content=12392706:52
tioxDownload that theme.06:52
glitchdKM0201, how would that help?06:52
bullgard4ox3a: tiox has given you not a good advice. Too much effort.06:52
KM0201glitchd: that would save all of your configuration files, etc..06:52
tioxbullgard4: What you are talking about takes too much effort! P06:52
dexikiixtiox: btw, the right side of my windows is now populated by some empty boxes and the window menu06:52
tiox\:P*06:52
tioxOdd.06:52
frobisherox3a look at pinguyos06:53
bullgard4tiox: What you suggested.06:53
KM0201plc90210: any luck?06:53
ox3afrobisher, ?06:53
Maahesum, anyone know how to use the aptitude ncurses program? I'm trying to sort packages by their current state flag, but after reading the manual I still am not sure how to go about this (Yes I have to use the ncurses program, I lost X)06:53
frobisheryes06:53
tioxTry button layout again, except, be sure the only thing in there is menu:minimize,maximize,close dexikiix06:53
ox3afrobisher, pakage is it?06:53
tioxbullgard4: It's not terribly much effort if you did this for Ubuntu already.06:54
glitchddexikiix, sounds like the wrong words are in the gconf setting for the button layout06:54
plc90210crap...06:54
glitchdtiox, sry didnt see u answered the before i did06:54
dexikiixglitchd: let me check for typos06:54
plc90210i should have taken the cd out before restarting...06:54
bullgard4tiox: I disagree.06:54
KM0201plc90210: lol06:54
ox3atiox, any different ubuntu 10.10 and kubuntu 10.10?06:54
glitchddexikiix, menu:minimize,maximize,close06:54
frobisherox3a PingutOS is a preconfigered ubuntu clone06:54
glitchddexikiix, thats what it should say exactly06:55
plc90210i'll just turn it off, take the cd out, and turn it back on06:55
glitchddexikiix, that is if u want the buttons on the right side of the window06:55
dexikiixah, somehow missed the word "menu" and just had the stuff after06:55
KM0201plc90210: it's not code red critical.. no need to go crazy..06:55
dexikiixworks properly now, thank you tiox glitchd06:55
tioxbullgard4: If you are looking to try out the KDE environment for Ubuntu, best way is with kubuntu. Go to kubuntu.com, download the ISO file. Pop a CD-R into your CD burner, burn the ISO onto disk, reboot with CD in the drive, choose to boot from CD with your boot manager, or through your BIOS, change boot order to have CD run first.06:55
glitchdKM0201, could i do that with a os that is installed already? or would i have to reinstall again?06:56
tioxUbuntu makes this so easy to do.06:56
nawkMy USB flash drive still cannot boot after I've tried using usbcreator.06:56
shawnboywhy am I still being prompted for a password even after putting rsa keys in place for ssh?06:56
ox3atiox, and will i get everything of ubuntu in kubuntu?06:56
KM0201glitchd: ah... honestly, i don't put home on a separate partition, but i *believe* you would have to reinstall and repartition your drive06:56
glitchddexikiix, np06:56
nawkit's stuck at the "SYSLINUX 3.63 Debian-2008-07-15 ...." message06:56
tioxox3a: Not entirely. But a lot of things for Ubuntu are gnome-specific.06:56
tioxA lot of things for kubuntu are KDE-specific.06:57
glitchdKM0201, ughh:(  ill just wait till i screw this install up to do that06:57
shawnboyglitchd: you can move to sep home partition without reinstalling06:57
glitchdKM0201, thank you tho06:57
KM0201lol06:57
glitchdshawnboy, do tell..06:57
KM0201ah see, maybe you don't hae to reinstall06:57
tioxBut you can install (temporarily) live whatever you want to play with using KDE's package manager, which I am not entirely sure what it is.06:57
tioxCan somenone confirm what it is forme?06:57
shawnboywell, you could google for it, or I have reproduced others' work on my personal blog.06:58
ox3atiox, yeah but such will i miss such as server,database,networking software?06:58
tioxdexikiix: If you clicked my gnome-look link, you'll want to then extract the theme somewhere. Assume desktop in this case...06:58
KM0201tiox: if you want kubuntu support, try #kubuntu06:58
harrypotterhey guys,any good games in ubuntu?06:58
KM0201harrypotter: not really06:58
KM0201!games | harrypotter06:58
ubottuharrypotter: Information about games on Ubuntu can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Games and http://www.icculus.org/lgfaq/gamelist.php and http://www.penguspy.com/06:58
Gneatiox: pretty sure kubuntu uses adept06:59
ox3aKM0201, kubuntu not support for ubuntu?06:59
KM0201i think so06:59
tioxThen, after that extract Ambiance_R, launch terminal, type in sudo mv ~/Desktop/Ambiance_R /usr/share/themes06:59
KM0201ox3a: no, they're different... #kubuntu for kubuntu, #xubuntu for xubuntu, and so on06:59
Gneaox3a: no, they are mutually exclusive as far as operational values are concerned. many tasks between them are in parrallel, but it can be rare06:59
KM0201plc90210: any joy?06:59
Gneaparallel*07:00
plc90210KM0201: yeah, the driver's now activated07:00
KM0201plc90210: well, thas good07:00
KM0201can you see wireless networks07:00
tioxox3a: It's your best bet to try out kubuntu for the best KDE experience. Some applications in Ubuntu will break using Gnome apps unless there are KDE-supported Gnome applications.07:00
plc90210yep07:00
KM0201plc90210: well sing the hallelujah chorus07:00
plc90210now the pain of trying to connect to the wireless network begins07:00
KM0201plc90210: that should be fairly simple.07:01
KM0201plc90210: why do you think that would be difficult?07:01
ox3atiox, i am worry if i miss very nice tools of ubuntu in kubuntu. Will it?07:01
Gneatiox, ox3a: actually, you can run many KDE applications just fine in Ubuntu, as it will automatically install kde library support for them. the applications that will likely fail are those requiring the K environment to be running07:01
TULeGiTwow07:01
tioxox3a: We're just trying to say, you are better off trying Kubuntu for Ubuntu+KDE so you don't break Ubuntu trying to remove Gnome in favor for KDE.07:01
XiaolinDraconisim trying to make a rescue/emergency bootable usb stick07:01
* KM0201 thinks KDE is pretty close to a Linux virus07:02
plc90210KM0201: it's a really old laptop that's had issues with this in the past07:02
KM0201plc90210: uh.. ok07:02
tioxAnd, beside that, you can install the KDE environement and pick it from your login screen.07:02
GneaKM0201: less so than gnome, IMHO ;)07:02
tioxenvironment*07:02
TULeGiT... wtf07:02
XiaolinDraconisthe first time i tried it worked just fine07:02
KM0201Gnea: elitist!.. :)07:02
ox3aKM0201, kde is more fast07:02
GneaKM0201: hey now, I prefer E17 :)07:02
KM0201ox3a: i guess thats in the eye of the beholder... i hate KDE... it is WAY slower on my systems than gnome07:02
XiaolinDraconisbut i erased it so i could make it a ext4 fs and it didnt work07:03
KM0201ox3a: not to mention it looks like my 6yr old broke out his crayola's to design it07:03
XiaolinDraconisso i erased it again and went back to fat16 and it still wont work07:03
tioxKM0201: If hsi PC can run it, don't knock it yet.07:03
Gneaox3a: actually, XFCE and E17 beat KDE and Gnome as far as speed, memory usage and optimization are concerned07:03
tioxhis*07:03
ox3aKM0201, OK07:03
KM0201tiox: i hate it...07:03
XiaolinDraconisim following the exact same steps as before07:03
KM0201Gnome is fine, really like lxde07:03
tioxI should try XFCE some time.07:03
Gneayou can run E17 on a 486 and even earlier Pentium I and II systems these days, can't say the same for gnome or kde07:04
KM0201xfce is ok... but honestly, w/ xfce4(at least on ubuntu) it is just as bloated as gnome.07:04
ox3atiox, Will i able to install all tools of ubuntu in kubuntu?07:04
shcherbakKM0201: i have designed t-shits with slogan Renove your Xservers! Can reband it for you... deKDE yourselfs07:04
tioxox3a: Some, maybe. Like Firefox.07:04
tioxWait...07:04
ox3atiox, ok07:04
KM0201shcherbak: lol, clever07:05
shcherbak*REmove*07:05
Gneaheh, firefox doesn't require gnome07:05
tioxConfirm this one people: If he installs the KDE environment, he can still use his GNome tools right?07:05
Gneatiox: there are KDE tools he can use in place of them07:05
KM0201and they'd probably be more efficient07:05
tioxBut, he wants to know if he can still use all of the tools he's grown use to using Gnome.07:05
Gneait depends on the tool07:06
XiaolinDraconisox3a, most of the tools are there. and if you want a really bloated system you can run gnome and kde at the same time07:06
tioxI think he can, since e17 was pretty nice with using some Gnome things.07:06
tioxrofl07:06
Gneahaving a list would be a more efficient way of asking, otherwise he'll need to dive in and try07:06
KM0201plc90210: so what problem are you having connecting to networks?07:06
Gneatiox: indeed, but even then it's not going to run gnome applets and such07:06
plc90210it can't connect to my home network07:07
tioxox3a: Just download Kubuntu from kubuntu.com, burn it to CD and boot from CD.07:07
KM0201plc90210: can you log into your router, and set it to broadcast for a few minutes?07:07
XiaolinDraconisox3a, or use grubs ability to boot from iso07:07
tioxWith KDE, you do have to change how you use your machine quite a bit.07:07
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, actually i am trying to make it own distro and i was used kde for long term07:07
tioxXiaolinDraconis: Let's not confuse him. I always use my PC's ability to boot before system POST.07:07
GneaI've always thought of switching GUIs as a way of learning how to use the OS better07:08
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, In kde menu editing is very easy07:08
KM0201plc90210: when you say it "can't connect to your network".. what exactly do you mean?07:08
plc90210well I can identify it and am able to try to connect to it and it tries to connect for a while, but then it says it disconnected07:08
XiaolinDraconisox3a, its a real nice setup i havent used it for long tho just a couple days07:08
GneaI've used Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu and all are fairly well put together07:09
KM0201plc90210: ok....07:09
XiaolinDraconisox3a, i like the way it looks and feels07:09
KM0201plc90210: can you log into your router?07:09
plc90210... how do i do that?07:09
KM0201hmm07:09
KM0201192.168.1.1 usually07:09
KM0201try disabling security, and see if you can connect07:09
[thor]or 0.107:09
XiaolinDraconisox3a, i downloaded the kde desktop package from repos and made a new user to log into kde session with07:09
tioxox3a: I find Gnome menu editing very easy too. Can you explain why you want to make the switch?07:10
shawnboywhy isn't passwordless ssh working for me?07:10
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, what will be the best for me (already tiox told about kubuntu)?07:11
Gneashawnboy: probably because you're not doing it right07:11
shawnboythanks Gnea07:11
XiaolinDraconisox3a, depends on what you like07:12
Gneashawnboy: so what method are you trying to use?07:12
XiaolinDraconisox3a, i would say since you already know gnome then stick with it07:12
shawnboyi've done it before but it's not working this time, Gnea.07:12
XiaolinDraconisox3a, i waited a year before trying kde07:13
shawnboyGnea: I have openssh-server installed... generated keys.07:13
Gneashawnboy: you'll need to be more specific than that, please.07:13
XiaolinDraconisox3a, i wanted to get comfortable with my new desktop07:13
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, I like ubuntu all package but problem is i do not like gnom envro07:13
shawnboyGnea: then put the pub key in the remote machines authorized_keys file under .ssh07:13
XiaolinDraconisox3a, what dont you like about it?07:13
tioxox3a also needs to be more specific with what applications for Gnome he wants to carry over into KDE.07:13
Gneashawnboy: sounds right..07:13
shawnboyGnea: shouldn't that be it?07:13
Gneashawnboy: it should be. did you follow this tutorial? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=3070907:14
tioxAs i said before, install the KDE environment. Do NOT remove Gnome, since the login window is a part of the Gnome environment.07:14
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, actually i am using kde since 4 years07:14
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, Now it very fun for me07:15
tioxIf you remove GDM, you'll need to specify from TTY your login, and what environment to log into. Meaning, you'll pretty much be booting into a terminal.07:15
shawnboyGnea: I'll look at it. I did exactly what I said, nothing more nothing less. I'll look at that link, though. thanks.07:15
shcherbaktiox: gdm can be replaced too, with kdm (for frustrated)07:15
Gneatiox: don't forget, the kubuntu-desktop will actually install kdm07:15
XiaolinDraconisi installed kdm and still use gnome session07:15
tioxOh?07:15
XiaolinDraconisyeah it came with the package07:16
XiaolinDraconiskinda a pain to switch back n forth tho07:16
Gneashawnboy: yeah, never know if maybe there was a small step missed, I've done that before07:16
ox3atiox, can you tell me  about uck?07:16
tioxSo, he can install the KDE environment, uninstall GDM, log in using K's login screen and using adept, remove all things Gnome?07:16
XiaolinDraconisyep07:16
* tiox scratches his head07:16
Gneain theory07:16
XiaolinDraconisdont forget to switch to kdm first tho07:16
ox3atiox, yea all thing07:16
dexikiixhey im back... may have seen this coming, but i need help w/ flash, im 64-bit07:17
shcherbaktiox: it is a bit messy, but yes07:17
tioxHuh. Well, as I said ox3a, and I will breathlessly advocate this method.07:17

tioxWell... I missed that.07:18

XiaolinDraconisox3a, have you tried lxde07:18
ox3atiox, there is a option for kde env (Just i wanna customize my ubuntu)07:18
Gnea:)07:18
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, no07:18
tioxSo yeah. Try installing the KDE environment and switch to KDM, log in with it and kill Gnome off.07:18
XiaolinDraconisox3a, it uses half the resources as kde and gnome07:19
shcherbakox3a: go for awesome, wired, but less than xmonad07:19
tioxBut, mind you, kubuntu is preconfigured with all the K apps you'll want, and you can install what's missing later.07:19
XiaolinDraconisox3a, do you just want to make your gnome look better?07:19
=== chris_osx is now known as chris_openbsd
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, tiox will it any harm for operating sys if i install only kdm?07:20
tioxI feel a few of us should invite ox3a into a special ad-hoc channel so we can offset his questioning away from here, and allow others to ask questions without being lost in a flurry of stuff to him07:20
shawnboyGnea: I'm back. thanks for help.07:20
shawnboyGnea: things are working in ssh again ... passwordless.07:21
tioxox3a: Nope.07:21
tioxJust do it right.07:21
tioxI cannot help you with this because I have no interest in replacing with K, nor have I ever replaced Gnome with K07:21
shawnboynow, does ANYONE have FreeNX working?07:21
XiaolinDraconisox3a, nope im using kdm now cause i found an awesome theme for it07:22
XiaolinDraconisox3a, http://img10.imageshack.us/i/screenshotmni.png/07:22

ox3aXiaolinDraconis, kdm?(very nice)07:23
XiaolinDraconisuncheck work offline.... lol07:23
XiaolinDraconisox3a, kdm is the login screen07:23
XiaolinDraconisox3a, thats a gnome session07:23
KM0201XiaolinDraconis: i wish it were that easy07:23
tioxJust mind, if you remove Gnome, you'll also take out some Gnome-related apps, and things will get broken along the way, whatever may reside on your system that REQUIRED Gnome after removal07:23
shawnboythe Ubuntu documentation is a little lacking. i did it all, but don't know how to set it up, administer it, or connect.07:23
XiaolinDraconisox3a, tiox is absolutely right dont remove gnome that way07:24
tioxXiaolinDraconis: I was just using some generic common sense. I was not entirely sure if I was right or not, but I was pretty sure of what I was saying.07:25
andisjavascan07:25
ox3atiox, I was made a iso file after installed kde in ubuntu(and i also added my 1.5 gb compiled software)But i was took 2.5 gb and remastersys did not make it properly07:26

tioxUNless, he already did, and I am too fracking tired.07:30
XiaolinDraconisgotta break sme eggs to make an omelet07:30
MaahesXiaolinDraconis: question, will remastersys make a new install capable of being installed as a live USB? I.e., compressed read only kernel, busybox, loading things up into ram instead on the disk.07:31
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, mkdir?07:31
OrmieTotal Hard disk Capacity 4.0 GB Used: 2.6 GB FREE: 908 MB!!! And it reports low disk space07:31
XiaolinDraconisMaahes, if you can make a bootable iso off your livecd then yeah07:31
MaahesOrmie: That's low disk space, I can generate 130mb's in logs every few days07:32
XiaolinDraconisMaahes, i mean bootable usb from the livecd07:32
OrmieMaahes: How??07:32
XiaolinDraconisox3a, what are you asking?07:32
MaahesOrmie: 20+IRC channels on all the time07:32
tioxOrmie: Try using another USB drive and symlink to it. I don't know the finer details, so ask help about symlinking another drive here.07:33
tioxIt just means you'd need two USB ports every time you boot into Ubuntu.07:33
tioxOther than that...07:33
MaahesAlso, if you don't watch it, a week or so of watching a lot of multimedia on your install will use up a lot of space07:33
XiaolinDraconisOrmie, google about moving home folder to new partition07:33
sacarlsonMaahes: is it an eeepc?07:33
tioxMaune you can clone your current filesystem onto a larger one in the future.07:33
tioxI ran Ubuntu on an 8GB USB drive with no problem.07:34
Maahesand then you download a few pdf's, some source packages, and soon you have like 200mb's left07:34

Maahessacarlson: no.07:34

Inf0delyay!07:37
ZykoticK9KM0201, it already has07:37
gobbetiox: that's bug07:37
KM0201ZykoticK9: what, dropping gnome?07:37
ZykoticK9KM0201, yup07:37
ox3atiox, there is a package "kde-full". Will it do?07:37
gobbetiox: some packets trigger documentation to change version to 11.0407:38
KM0201ZykoticK9: how do you figure?07:38
tioxSure will.07:38
MaahesIt's not dropped gnome07:38
MaahesIt still uses all gnome services in the background07:38
ZykoticK9KM0201, they're switching Ubuntu-Desktop to use Unity07:38
XiaolinDraconisox3a, yes that installs kde but after you download and install it make  a new user07:38
Maahesand many default gnome programs07:38
KM0201ZykoticK9: you mean that horrible looking netbook OS07:38
Inf0del<3 gnome07:38
tioxKM0201: Will Ubuntu Desktop Edition on my system still use Gnome?07:38
ZykoticK9KM0201, yup07:39
MaahesZykoticK9: that's not "dropping gnome" that's not using 1 program that's in the gnome standard base, almost every gnome distro around does this.07:39
KM0201ZykoticK9: eh, i dont see that happening07:39
ZykoticK9KM0201, it already has - try 11.0407:39
MaahesKM0201: no he's right about Ubiquity being on by default in the next release.07:39
Inf0delbelieve it07:39
XiaolinDraconisi just read it will still have gnome-panel you just have to start the service yourself07:39
wyclifyo07:39
KM0201ZykoticK9: i'm sure it can be disabled.07:39
tioxAck.07:39
gobbeKM0201: of course, it's linux07:39
ZykoticK9KM0201, there is a "classic" login option07:39
gobbeKM0201: you can do what ever you want07:39
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, You mean , I should make a new user after finishing install kde-full ?07:40
Maahesyes it can be disabled. You can run Gnome Shell too, if you like, or not run either (which is what I do)07:40
XiaolinDraconisox3a, yes07:40
tioxGod dammit... so they're going to change what loads as panel?07:40
KM0201ZykoticK9: i realy don't care, i use debian.. but i think that would bea bad move on ubuntus part.07:40
tioxIf that is the case, then it's a simple gconf edit for me.07:40
XiaolinDraconisox3a, use a new user to login to kde session07:40
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, I see07:40
XiaolinDraconisox3a, if you dont it change all your default apps to kde stuff when you switch back07:41
tioxHold on. I want people to explain this one to me.07:41
tioxWhen I upgrade Ubuntu, what's gonna happen?07:41
nawkCan someone please help me my problem with the Ubuntu USB Startup Disk?07:41
Maahestiox: eh, ui stuff doesn't bother me as much, its that the internals of ubuntu keep changing pretty fast, makes it hard to remember how to do things (like for instance when there's no more xorg.conf, etc.07:41
Inf0delyur gonna get ubuntu's netbook interface07:41
nawkafter making the startup disk (the ubuntu liveusb)07:41
ZykoticK9tiox, i doubt upgrades have been considered/tested much - but the default interface will be Unity07:41
Maahesnawk: state your problem07:41
tioxBut everything else will still be Gnome, right?07:42
XiaolinDraconistiox, you lose gnome panel and get that unity stuff and it doesnt have panel applets or anything good07:42
ZykoticK9tiox, ya07:42
tioxSo it's a gconf edit.07:42
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, And if i use remastersys in new user then will the remastersys work fine(Very important making a my personal distro ubuntu base)07:42
Franoculatorok, got a problem.  Rebooted my PC, and everything in /home is as it was on October 27.  ext4 partition.07:42
MaahesUnity is just an interface, it has nothing to do specifically with the gnome-desktop specification07:42
FranoculatorI have the data backed up, that's not a problem.07:42
Franoculatorbut what the hell happened to my disk?07:42
XiaolinDraconisox3a, no because it will be too big07:42
tioxI certainly hope it's JUST that. But the update should make the interface change an option.07:42
nawkIt fails to boot, it is stuck at the "SYSLINUX 3.63 Debian-2008-07-15 EBIOS..."07:42
nawkmessage07:43
supaplexhow can I pin only kernel images/headers/etc from maverick on karmic?  I tried using -10 as the preference for a=maverick, but aptitude safe-upgrade shows it's going to try upgrading 400mb of packages. (not what I expect; no kernel* specifics in preferences yet)07:43
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, So?07:43
Maahestiox: it does "use classic" also it's pretty easy to uninstall07:43
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, way?07:43
tioxAlright.07:43
XiaolinDraconisox3a, you need to do that with a virtual machine or make a new partition and install a second ubuntu07:43
nawkMaahes, following that it's got a message saying "Unknown keyword in configuration file."07:43
Maahessupaplex: I recommend using synaptic's interace.07:43
tioxBecause I have AWN set up how I want it.07:43
nawk"boot:"07:43
nawkthat's all07:44
Franoculatordammit I'm freaking out here.07:44
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, Can explain what to do after making new partition?07:44
XiaolinDraconistiox, u should keep AWN when u upgrade that should stay the same07:44
Maaheswell it means one of your boot files is corrupted, did you just make this usb-install?07:44
nawkMaahes yes, I used usbcreator07:45
XiaolinDraconisox3a, install a new ubuntu just like you did when u first installed it. only this time choose the empty partition07:45
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, i have 1.5 gb downloaded software to add(and need set these as default for every install time)07:45
XiaolinDraconisox3a, you have to burn that to a bootable dvd07:45
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, Yeah I installed it today07:45
Maahesnawk: I can't comment on that, I use the pendrive linux creator. I recommend checking the md5 sum of your image to see if it matches the online md5 sum, and then reinstalling07:45
supaplexMaahes: and I can be that specific with synaptic? I want the majority of the system to remain with karmic for now, but this laptop has serious dain brammage if it's not running at least 2.6.35 and acpi=copy_dsdt cmdline for the kernel.07:46
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, thats why i am trying to remove all the package without kde07:46
XiaolinDraconisox3a, i recommend you try VMware Player07:46
nawkMaahes: how do I check the md5 sum of the downloaded iso?07:46
supaplexnawk: md5sum spiffy.iso07:47
Maahessupaplex: you go and do a force version (it gives you a drop down menu), then once you've forced versions, after that, pin them all07:47
Maahesthere's an md5 program installed in ubuntu by default isn't there?07:47
chris_openbsdnawk: md5 <file>07:47
XiaolinDraconisox3a, it lets you boot up a fake hdd and install to that. all you need is to download the kde iso and use it with VMware Player07:47
Maahesnawk: you should have a program called md5sum on your computer, if not install it07:48
dhanijeremyhas anyone here used Guitar Rig?07:48
chris_openbsdnawk: or openssl md5 <file>07:48
Maahesand all you do is run it from the command line ~%md5sum /path/to/image07:48
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, If i install kubuntu then it wont be hug size?07:48
XiaolinDraconisMaahes, i use a script pack i got off gnome-look.org it lets you right click and create or compare md5's07:48
nawkchris_openbsd, it appears md5sum is from the 'coreutils' package07:49
MaahesXiaolinDraconis: if you can link him to that, that would work too.07:49
XiaolinDraconisox3a, google about installing kde in VMware player07:49
chris_openbsdnawk: you should have the openssl command07:49
MaahesI thought coreutils was installed by default? eh.07:50
chris_openbsdnawk: openssl md5 test.iso07:50
Franoculatoranybody have any advice?  Did I just get screwed by ext4?07:50
ox3aXiaolinDraconis, But i don't have the vmware software/os07:50
XiaolinDraconisox3a, then get it its very useful for trying new OS and testing software07:52
XiaolinDraconisnawk, i think this is the script pack i am referring to  http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Nautilus+Scripts+Pack?content=9033007:52
nawkMaahes, chris_openbsd the md5sum generated matches the one published on online07:57

denndagobbe: yeah my user id in ubuntu is 1000 and in osx apparently it is 501... now i *could* set permissions in osx so that the 'dialout' group ('staff' on osx) has access as desired, but then everybody on osx can read those files09:33
gobbedennda: you need to change uid and gid09:33
gobbedennda: if you want it work just out of the box09:33
denndagobbe: i think uid should be enough since the user has the highest privileges anyway09:33
gobbedennda: well if you just have one user09:34
gobbedennda: then uid is enough09:34
denndagobbe: the thing is that i'm not sure if there are any services on osx or ubuntu that rely on those specific ids09:34
gobbedennda: what was the user id in osx?09:34
mitzedbye09:34
denndagobbe: 50109:34
denndagobbe: as reported by nautilus09:35

denndaok i think i just found a use case for having a root account. how the heck am I supposed to change a user's settings if you need to be logged in (as root) to do that, when the only account on the system is that particular user and you can't edit his settings cause he's logged in09:39
FreaksHi. Without trolling, I'd like to know the best Linux softwares for daily use.09:39
FrozenKnightWhoah... so many options.09:40
Nexxusdamn lol09:40
denndai mean i could reboot into a root shell, but i am not sure at all if that has proper access to all the functions i need then09:40
SoMeNaMeglitchd: You reinstalled ?09:40
gobbetrojanking: tar doesn't install anything09:40
gobbetrojanking: tar just extracts files from archive09:40
trojankinghmm so what do i do gobbe09:40
glitchdSoMeNaMe, oh man, i have reinstalled like 3 times in the last week out of my own ignorance and messing up my install09:41

denndaok let me try this09:41
jbatistahi i have two questions09:41
jbatistafirst one has to do with gnome-about-me09:41
NexxusFrozenKnight: thanks09:41
Freaksmusic, videos, internet, P2P, burning, science, maths...09:41
jbatistais there a way to change the user's full name?09:41
gobbetrojanking: after tar you should have directory with files and there should be installation instructions09:41
gobbetrojanking: or binary installation executable or something09:41
jbatista(other than manually editing /etc/passwd ?)09:41

gobbeand about me09:42
gobbesorry09:42
gobbeabout me doesn't give option to change name09:42
jbatistagobbe: yep that's right :)09:42
trojankinggobbe, i saw readme file but no instruction in there09:42
jbatistagobbe: that's why i'm asking ;)09:42
jbatistagobbe: bug?09:43
FrozenKnightSo, any way to rollback the "always open with this" option for a filetype?09:43
WhatWhereAmIwhat's a good way to generate white noise in ubuntu?09:43
trojankinggobbe, the instruction is saying i should go to Flock website09:43
WhatWhereAmIFrozenFire, right-click on the file, go Properties, Open With tab.09:43
expahmethello09:43
jbatistaWhatWhereAmI: maybe audacity? i think it has a White Noise plugin or menu option09:43
expahmetplssssssssssssss helppppppppppppppppp09:44
gobbetrojanking: so what did your tar archive contain then?09:44
FrozenKnightWhatWhereAmI: MilkyTracker also has this :)09:44
jbatistaWhatWhereAmI: I don't know of any way to do it in the command line (scripting) though, if that's what you're looking for09:44
pksadiqjbatista: try  chfn    in terminal09:44
trojankinggobbe, list of files? should i upload screenshot or how do i tell u plz09:45
FrozenKnightHow do I reach the filetype options in ubuntu?09:45
WhatWhereAmIjbatista, I did, you could cat a data file directly into the audio device, but I don't know how to do that with PulseAudio now and everything09:45
gobbetrojanking: where did you get this tar-package?09:45
jbatistapksadiq: yes, it works (as long as I don't use non-ASCII characters)09:45
denndagobbe: ok i did it via a root shell (great user experience, by the way) and it seems to be working so far... not sure if there are any long-term side-effects09:45
DoinkleFrozenKnight, you mean associations?09:45
trojankingfrom flock.com09:45
FrozenKnightDoinkle: yes09:45
pksadiqtrojanking: is there a file named configure ?09:45
denndagobbe: first thing i noticed is that gdm seems to store default user to log in by ID, cause i had to manually enter my username... :)09:46
FrozenKnightDoinkle: I have accidently assigned sh with gedit09:46
FrozenKnightI want the old dialog back09:46
DoinkleFrozenKnight, i only know how to change that stuff with ubuntu tweaj09:46
gobbedennda: oh really, quite interesting09:46
Doinkletweak09:46
jbatistaWhatWhereAmI: I remember something like cat /dev/random >/dev/dsp  but it would keep looping (you'd have to do Ctrl+C at some point)09:46
zgrI have trouble with my hp dv6500 series laptop, after i clicked disable touch pad button above it,  it isn’t working now09:46
WhatWhereAmIFrozenKnight, right-click on the file, go Properties, Open With tab.09:46
gobbedennda: i haven't noticed that because i use always option that user needs to type username09:46
Doinkleif u dont have that app, install it and you will see the area09:46
DoinkleWhatWhereAmI is right tho09:47
WhatWhereAmIjbatista, yeah, i want to do some sensory deprivation09:47
denndagobbe: yeah i didn't change this, it's the default nowadays apparently09:47
gobbedennda: yes, feature that i hate :)09:47
WhatWhereAmIjbatista, /dev/dsp doesn't exist with pulseaudio installed and junk09:47
gobbedennda: i'm used to method where user needs to know his userid :D09:47
zgrbut touchpad works in gdm, when gnomes loads cursor hangs and i can use only usb mouse09:47
denndaanyway; anybody aware how good HFS+ support in ubuntu is? can i safely store/read my data from/to an HFS+ partition in ubuntu (e.g. i don't want to maintain two 'Downloads' folders)?09:48

AnxiousNutI have a problem! Whenever i try updating my lucid machine it gives a 404 Not found error when trying to fetch ppa.launchpad.net lucid/main packages! It's been almost a week and nothing has been resolved! any ideas?09:48
pksadiqtrojanking: is there any folder like lib  , usr, etc?09:48
FrozenKnightWhatWhereAmI: yeah, I've reached that, tried to reset the option and it opens with "Text Editor" of course this would be OK, but earlier it used some sort of dialog, with Run in Terminal, Display, Run options.09:49
FrozenKnightAlso deleting all options doesn't work :/09:49
pksadiqtrojanking: I believe that there will be a file named README or atleast configure09:49

SmartConstructorcan any one help on this?09:49
WhatWhereAmIFrozenKnight, oh yeah, whenever you double-click on a script it should ask you if you wanna open it in an editor or run it09:49
jbatistapksadiq , gobbe : I've seen CentOS's gnome-about-me allowing the change of username,09:49
jbatistapksaqid , gobbe : but I'm not sure if that's a CentOS "feature" or a Ubuntu "bug"09:50
FrozenKnightWhatWhereAmI: Nevermind I understood why :D09:50
SmartConstructori have mount manager installed09:50
gobbejbatista: i think it's feature there09:50
FrozenKnightWhatWhereAmI: it works normally, I just hadn't inserted the header for that specific file :D09:50
jbatistagobbe : OK09:50
pksadiqjbatista: I hope  this would be fixed soon, if it's a bug, check in launchpad if reported09:50

ubottujbatista: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.09:50

ghostlineshi all I'm having a problem with wordpress on ubuntu 10.10 for some reason my theme only shows up when I use my internal lan IP address. If i use my external IP or domain name the theme never works. Any idea's how I could solve this?09:51
trojankingpksadiq, this is what is in readme file http://paste.ubuntu.com/549025/09:51
jbatistapksadiq : btw I'm on Lucid, not sure if Maverick or Natty have fixed that09:51
gobbetrojanking: there's no way to install it to application menu, you need to run it from the directory09:51
gobbetrojanking: there's run-mozilla.sh09:51
gobbetrojanking: so just run it from terminal09:51
gobbetrojanking: or add entry to application menu by hand09:52
FrozenKnightWhatWhereAmI: it also has to have the execut bit set.09:52
FrozenKnightexecute09:52
trojankinggobbe so what do i do now09:52
WhatWhereAmIFrozenKnight, oh yeah, of course09:52

trojankingpksadiq, ./flock/flock-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libjemalloc.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory10:05

ShruikhanI want install in dual boot ubuntu and kubuntu by doing a separate installation of the two os.es11:05
ShruikhanI know how to do all the process, but my doubt is regarding a partition.11:05
ShruikhanI usually use 4 partition /boot / swap /home.11:05
ShruikhanNow, i consider to install ubuntu by using this partitioning system, and after i'll install kubuntu. For Kubuntu i'll share home by a different user account11:05

MayankDr_Wills: was that for me?11:07
red2kicMayank: Not likely. He just came in. Self-indulged.11:07
Dr_WillisMayank:  it was for me. :) my settings are messed up11:08
Dr_WillisShruikhan:  you do realize you can just install kubuntu-desktop over ubuntu, and select what desktop to use at the GDM login screen.11:08
Mayankred2kic: ok! but any suggestions for solving an error - subprocess dpkg-deb --control returned error exit status 211:08
Mayankwhile dpkg - i a package?11:08
Dr_WillisShruikhan:  the 2 installs could share the same /home/ also. but that might cause a few issues. if you added 2 users to each,  and just used one for kde, and one for gnome. that would avoid most issues11:09
Dr_WillisShruikhan:  but honestly - i dont see the point in 2 seperate installs11:09
ShruikhanDr_Willis, i know that way. What i want i try as separate as possible from ubuntu the kubuntu system.11:09
paccezDr_Willis, in that way you would have all kde software in ubuntu and all gnome software in kubuntu...11:09
ShruikhanI know.11:09
Dr_WillisI find kde and gnome apps to handy to keep them seperated..11:10
MayankDr_Wills: ok! :) but any suggestions for solving an error - subprocess dpkg-deb --control returned error exit status 2 while doing dpkg -i <package_name>11:10
Dr_WillisShruikhan:  the use of a /boot/ is a bit unneeded these days also.11:10
Dr_WillisMayank:  not really. fixing apt breakage - can be a real pain.11:10
Shruikhanthe fact is that i reached a perfect state of the art of my ubuntu installation11:10
MayankDr_Wills: ok :(11:11
Dr_WillisShruikhan:  with that 'logic' then why do you even want to bother with kde..11:11
red2kicShruikhan: You're on a computer?11:11
Callum__happy new year to everyone =P in NZ here it's new years already11:11
Shruikhanbecause i have a poerful notebook and i don't give a chance to kde since kde 4.011:11
Dr_Willisif you want to test out kde. you could just use a live cd.11:12
Dr_Willisor virtualbox. - KDE is very well done in 10.10 - i use it on my laptop.11:12
LegoSalvahi11:12
Dr_Willislearning all the little tricks and tips of using kde - is the hard part.11:12
red2kicShruikhan: Install KDE + GNOME on one machine and share them?11:12
Shruikhanknow i tried the live cd and all works fine but i don't want to be annoyed by the problems about gdm or kdm and all about the processes of the desktop environment that loads automaticall11:12
red2kicShruikhan: Use Kubuntu LiveDisc (or if you want persistent mode, install it to USB).11:13
Dr_WillisShruikhan:  i dont really notice any of kde loading automatically on my mixxed system. Gnome+KDE+Lubuntu11:13
paccezShruikhan, why don't you just install kubuntu as another OS? Just like installing Windows with Ubuntu11:13
Dr_WillisSo you have your options.. do what you want. :) i guess.11:14
Dr_Willispaccez:  that can have its own issues.11:14
Dr_Willis'safest' do a full install to a 8+GB flash drive.. perhaps..11:14
Dr_Willisactually safest may be to use it in virtualbox.11:15
Dr_Willisthat way its easy to 'remove' if you decide tonot use kde.11:15
Shruikhanhum... this way is useful but i can't see how system performs kubuntu because the hdd in my laptop is 7200rpm so a different class of speed11:17

bs123are there any good portable documents available for a newbie to ubuntu?11:30
Dr_Willisthe kernel uses alsa. that is then used by Pulse audio.11:30
jhonyea, but pulse is so tied into the system, you cant actually remove it without crippling the distro11:31

jhonFluxbox is very low tech, but uses minimum resources12:06
jhonIceVM looks like Windows 95, but only uses a couple MB of ram12:07
SN4K3my new system is gr8 but im pretty much a minimalist12:07
Dr_Willisfluxbox is just a window manager.. so of course it uses less resources then a full 'desktop'12:07

jhonSN4K3: Gnome is just good for that12:11
Linux_Galoreactually i remember reading about a proper distro (not dsl) aimed at users who either collect or like to use old hardware12:11
Linux_Galorethey even still use the 2.4 kernel tree12:11
Dr_WillisLinux_Galore:  theres a puppy variant that just came out for that target. but puppy is not always 'proper'12:11
SN4K3so arch and other minimal install systems wont give u that much of a boost?12:11
Dr_WillisSN4K3:  doubtfull..12:12
Linux_Galorethe problem with the 2.6 kernel is support for a pile of old hardware has been dropped12:12
iwantoknowhi can i ask for your help? Is it possible to set failsave graphic mode as default boot option?12:12
Dr_Willisiwantoknow:  ive never noticed that feature, or what the option wouldbe on the grub line to enable it.. if you neew the option. it would be possible to add custom grub entries12:13

tristan3199us1is anyone here familiar with windows librarys, im looking for a window manager or file manager that has librarys that include mutiple directories in one spot.. anything like that available??12:29
sriniDr_Willis :  I checked. But i dont get ans12:30
rumpe1tristan3199us1, multiple dirs in one spot?12:30
WhatWhereAmItristan3199us1, yeah, i have no idea what you're talking about.12:31
ubumanrumpe1 yeah I didn't want to ask12:31
rumpe1perhaps he means something like F3 in nautilus ^^12:31
jhontristan3199us1: if you are looking for a file manager that does everything Krusader is the closest one12:31
jhontristan3199us1: its a TC clone12:32
Dr_Willistristan3199us1:  its not clear what youa re looking for excactly.12:32

Dr_Willistristan3199us1:  you want to duplicate teh windows7 libraries feature then is what you are saying.12:32
ubumantrojanking checked your home directory?12:33
tristan3199us1yes dr willis12:33
Dr_Willistristan3199us1:  i think theres some 'fuse' tools that could sort of emulate that effect.12:33
tristan3199us1im not the best at saying what i need..12:33
Dr_WillisI saw some fuse fs. that could  'overlay' several differnt directories. onto one single directory. then all file managers/tools would work with it.12:33
tristan3199us1im newish to linux.. do i sudo apt-get fuse12:34
ubumanI've mounted stuff in the same place man does that cause problems!12:34
Dr_WillisYou would proberly want to go to the fuse homepage and read up on fuse.12:34
tristan3199us1thanks dr12:34
Dr_Willistristan3199us1:  Fuse is a very powerfull   thing.t hat has dozens of 'special' filesystems12:34
Dr_Willis!fuse12:34
ubottuFUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) is a !kernel driver that allows non-root users to create their own filesystems. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_in_Userspace for more on FUSE.  Some examples of filesystems that use FUSE are !ntfs-3g, sshfs and isofs. A full list of Filesystems that use FUSE is here:  http://fuse.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/FileSystems12:34

alfredgobbe, but I need to specify the user... look at this command (btw, I am trying to move files from alfred@alfred-laptop o alfred@james)12:35
jhontristan3199us1: if I understand what your saying you want different directories to be shown from the same directory12:35
ubumananyhow how do I get windows to autoraise in the live CD I been to windows under system > Preferences and changed it there but it doesn't work!12:35
jhontristan3199us1: in that case all you have to do is set up some symbolic links12:35
tristan3199us1jhon: yes12:35
tristan3199us1is this simple??12:36
Dr_Willisiwantoknow:  try the nomodeset option, perhaps.. or reinstall the nvidia drivers.. I never upgrade normally. i do clean isntalls. and i know formy nvidia systems i have to use 'nomodeset' to boot/install initially, untill i get the nvidia drivers installed.12:36
ubumantristan3199us1 can you type ln -s ?12:36
m4knot able to install mysql on 10.04 after doing apt-get install it fetches the packages and stops after "Setting up mysql-server-5.1 (5.1.41-3ubuntu12.8) .."12:36

zsharonI have xfce 4.6.2 installed through apt, but there's a feature in 4.7 that I'd like to have.  I'd prefer not compile something from source for a minor feature, though.  How much of a pain will it probably be if I do so?  The component I want is xfce4-panel, so can I just compile/install that from source without disturbing the rest of xfce?12:48
ubumanTopGear get a quake engine called darkplaces and retro game man!12:49

NastXLinux_Galore,  in #kde they said that this notification-daemon is not from them12:49

zsharoniLinux: I've never used Wubi, but I'd guess that you go to Add/Remove programs and remove it like any other software.13:19
ActionParsnipubuman: yes, that was what was requested with: "how can i list installed apps in my ubuntu in terminal"  wouldn't you say?13:19

trojan_spikecomments13:20
iLinuxdmdvotee-ubuntu: does it has: emerald --replace or compiz --replace in the Startup Applications?13:20
ActionParsnipdmdevotee-ubuntu: thats because the terminal is the parent, if you can do it in an ALT+F2 dialogue it will be ok13:20
rwwtrojan_spike: Instructions for removing Wubi are on-topic for this channel.13:20
zsharonyup13:20
ubumanActionParsnip hmm maybe it is different in debian13:21

trojan_spikerww, is it wubi tho?? thats pretty straight forward to uninstall.. i think its full installed13:21
me__how can i list currently running apps in terminal13:21
ActionParsnipubuman: who cares, this is ubuntu support13:21
ubumanme__ ps aux13:21
NastXLinux_Galore, it has something to do with the changes that the (k)ubuntu devs did to kde, with the beta ppa of kde it works13:21
rwwtrojan_spike: Considering that he specifically said it was, I'm going to go with 'yes'.13:21
ActionParsnipme__: ps -ef | less13:21
ubumanActionParsnip I do I'm only running an ubuntu live CD at the moment13:21
trojan_spikerww, :)13:22
ActionParsnipubuman: well this is Ubuntu support, so what debian does is moot13:22
trojan_spikerww, my appols13:22
ubumanActionParsnip well ubuntu does use debian's package management system so there is some overlap13:22
zsharonrww: I think he means that iLinux may have installed ubuntu, as in the permanent version, via wubi.  But, now removing it should be done by deleting the partition.  Unless iLinux speaks up, we may never know.....13:22
ActionParsnipubuman: maybe but its still of no value, this is ubuntu support13:23
trojankingplease how can i install skype for ubuntu 10.1013:23
trojan_spikezsharon, it just an uninstall with wubi13:23
me__ActionParsnip: wat happen if i not type less????13:23
rwwzsharon: Wubi installs Ubuntu as a file inside the Windows partition. There is no way to do a 'permanent' install via Wubi.13:23
ActionParsniptrojanking: add the partnet repo (enable it in software centre) and then install as you would any other app13:23
iLinuxhow come...13:23
rgb247trojan_spike: visit skype.com, you can download a linux version from there13:23
zsharonOkay.  As I said, I've never used it.  I was under the impression that Wubi has several install options.13:24
ActionParsnipme__: it will just scroll, less lets you view the output at your leisure (use cursor to scroll up and down)13:24
iLinuxok, ok, i have installed ubuntu via wubi in my friend's comp. But it says before install. "Restart your computer."13:24

ubumanme__ b ut that won't show you everything that ran13:26
me__ActionParsnip: i mean i want to list all the currently running apps in order of which started earlier than other just after my booting?13:26

Dr_Willisgiven how old Quake I is.. im suprised it works at all..14:00
ubumanActionParsnip has something to do with pulse audiop and not making /dev/dsp14:00
ActionParsnipubuman: the first quake? How are you running it? how did you install it>14:00
jhontrojanking: took me 2-3 months while doing IBO14:00
Dr_WillisThere are redone/udated versions of the quake engine i recall.14:00
ubumanActionParsnip how does it matter?14:00
ubumanActionParsnip same way i install it in any other distro14:00
k4r4mb4how to find out what shell I'm using atm?14:00

Dr_Willisk4r4mb4:  echo $SHELL  i think14:00
trojankingjhon, u see14:00
Dr_Willisk4r4mb4:  most likely you are using Bash14:00
ActionParsnipubuman: if you compiled it then its a world different to if youused someone precompiled package etc, why not just answer the question???14:00
jhontrojanking: if you have the whole day to yourself, forum reading, wikireading, etc, 2 week s enough14:00
scotty^happy new year everyone14:01
ubumanActionParsnip it works in that other unmentionable distro BTW14:01

raarred2kic: ok ok, perhaps the rule is a bit old... haven't really heard it mentioned since slackware 814:01
Dr_Willisk4r4mb4:   if you are using Ubuntu. you are using bash...14:01
ActionParsnipubuman: the method of install in Ubuntu will most likely be hugely different from the method in gentoo14:01
ubumanActionParsnip I install it a half a dozen different ways there is more than one engine for the game now you know?14:01
raarred2kic: still I think it's a good indicator :)14:01
Dr_Willis$ echo $SHELL14:01
