soundrayZzRicezZ: System-Preferences-Keyboard00:04

comicinkerpunkle: can you show me the link?00:05
ZzRicezZsoundray that is setup properly in gui  but when i'm not gui mode.. like in regular term..  it using wrong keyboard layout00:05
johnsmith2If I want to use Video4Linux for my webcam do I have to unload the SPCA5XX driver first?00:06
soundrayZzRicezZ: ?? you said xterm00:06

yigaldo I need to use Schedule Direct or  a similar service to view cable tv through mythtv or other software?00:07
punklesorry00:07
soundrayjohnsmith2: no. spca5xx is a hardware driver that interfaces with v4l00:07
yigalor can I view different channels without having this service00:07
comicinkerpunkle: no probs. if the video and sound do not sync, try vlc00:07
ZzRicezZsoundray hmm sorry new to linux but xterm as in non-gui interface like i haven't even startx yet00:07
punklesweet i will give vlc a go00:07
punklethank you00:07
disinterestedno, they just dont work and apparently brasero needs gstreamer-0.10 and thats not found00:07
johnsmith2soundray, so how do I know if my camera is working through V4L?  I'm trying to get it to work with zoneminder00:07
ZzRicezZsoundray i know for gui i edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and that fix it for me00:08
ZzRicezZbut in non-gui where do i edit00:08
johnsmith2I've ran "sudo zmu -d /dev/video0 -q -v" and it shows up there00:08
comicinkerZzRicezZ: did you restarted your X already?00:09
athemanyone else using totem with xine frontend?00:09
Peloathem,  not right now but I did in the past, what is your issue ?00:09
yigalshould I be able to view cable television using mythtv-frontend if I have a compatible tv tuner00:09
tsoulhey guyz,,00:09
yigaland cable00:09
Peloyigal, you might want to look for a myth-tv channel or check in the forum00:10
soundrayjohnsmith2: /dev/video0 is a v4l device. If you get a signal from the camera via this device, it means that it's working. The problem must therefore be on the zoneminder side.00:10
disinterestedcjae: i'm considering to just fall back to feisty or edgy00:11
athemPelo, I just installed it instead of the default gstreamer based totem and it cant play anything atm, it just tells me I "need to install support for format xy"00:11
krisbo9000in grub, sdc would = hd2 ... right?00:11
tsoulhey guyz need help please? I'm running gutsy, latest updates, have USB speakers which do not play back any sound ?00:11
dahitokiriwhat's the name of the linux utility that allows one to probe the mobo for temps and such?00:11
ZzRicezZcomicinker no.. cause i want to edit some file in console mode but I can't since my keyboard doesn't even have the "/00:11
ZzRicezZkey00:11
HomerSimpsomhello friends00:11
johnsmith2Yes I am receiving signal through motv, ekiga on that device, thanks soundray, I'll just look at zoneminder then00:11
Peloathem,  also install xine,  might resolve some codex issues00:11
Picikrisbo9000: that sounds right00:11
krisbo9000great, i think ive worked it out00:11
krisbo9000thanks everybuddy00:12
athemPelo, I searched the internet about the problem and I think I am missing the xine-lib?00:12
comicinkerZzRicezZ: then find it by trying out00:12
ZzRicezZany suggestion where I can edit my keyboard setting in console?00:12
ZzRicezZcomicinker when i get into X everything is fine00:12
Peloathem,  should have been added when you installed totem-xine but look in synaptic anyway <00:12
HomerSimpsomdo yo respect who use Windows XP, johnsmith2 Pelo Pici krisbo9000 athem comicinker ZzRicezZ ?00:12
ZzRicezZbut I want to be able to edit and use my keybaord in console mode as well..00:13

tsoulany ideas plz ?]00:14
cameronwDoes anyone know if I can do a clean Windows install on a new partition, then copy the files into the .wine directory (into their correct dirs) and be able to run programs better in Wine?00:14
Peloathem,  just do a search for xine it will be listed00:14
comicinkerZzRicezZ: sorry no idea00:14
Pelocameronw,  unlikely, but try asking in #winehq00:14
athemPelo, I did already but there are several packages with xine in their name00:14
HomerSimpsomPelo i feel misfortunated when i use linux... i cant install the two best chess sites clients of world,the 3 best pokers clients of world... etc etc etc00:15
akincercameronw: You wouldn't have the necessary registry entries00:15
Peloathem,  you are looking for one with both xine and lib00:15
akincerask yourself--would that work on a windows to windows copy?00:15
cameronwOh and copy the registry00:15
HomerSimpsomnot even a C decent compiler, Pelo00:15
cameronwrecoded first00:15
Lurken1cameronw: try the wine configuration tool in your applications->wine menu00:15
comicinkerHomerSimpsom: you don't have to use Linux00:15
cameronwWould redirecting the wine dir work? to the Windows dir?00:16
Lurken1cameronw: you probably want to tell the configuration program you want to use those files, instead of trying to manually copy everything yourslef.00:16
HomerSimpsomwhy do u use then, comicinker?00:16
PeloHomerSimpsom,  you are welcome to use which ever os you prefer,  it is your choice , but ppl in this channel have either a preference ubuntu flavored linux or they have a use for it00:16
Ubuntupwnsis there a GUI program for adding sqlite databases? I cant seem to figure out the command line version of it00:16
comicinkerHomerSimpsom: because I don't need windows at home00:16
soundrayPelo, comicinker: please don't feed...00:16
Lurken1cameronw: it would probably, most likely, hose your windows installation and make it unstable or not able to boot00:16
PeloUbuntupwns, try looking in synaptic00:16
Lurken1and probably would not give you any advantages00:16
sdubois92-laptopdoes anyone know why when i turn my brightness down, it automatically goes back up?00:16
cameronwYea i thought of that.00:16
Ubuntupwnsok00:16
athemPelo, libxine1 the right one? though this one is installed already according to synaptic00:16
cameronwespecially if it overwrote stuff00:17
=== wIRC-Newbie is now known as Wisteso
=== wirechief is now known as wirechief1
* unwiredbrain says "hi" to the whole chan.00:17
cameronwI better not try00:17
ZzRicezZthanks soundray gotta reboot to try00:17
unwiredbrainHi to everyone00:17
Peloathem,  sounds about right,  try reinstalling , but give me a minute and I'll check on my side00:17
Lurken1Yes, and it would get confused too.00:17
HomerSimpsomcomicinker Pelo what i feel is that many people use Linux only bcoz its moda between the nerds00:17
soundrayZzRicezZ: yw00:17
Lurken1cameronw: not unless you're willing to re-install everything there from scratch ;)00:17
athemPelo, that'd be cool, thanks a alot00:17
unwiredbrainI've got some inconsistencies with md5sums00:17
akincercameronw: your best bet is always to run through the installation so the WINE registry is configured appropriately00:17
unwiredbrainmd5sum*00:17
cameronwI would use a seperate new partition with clean install00:18
akincerbesides, if the installation fails, there's a pretty good bet the program wouldn't run anyway00:18
Lurken1applications->wine->"configure wine"00:18
noelferreirai'm having problems conncecting to a windows pc (using gutsy) in my lan with samba that i didn't have in feisty. is there anything i can do?00:18

arsenipi know this is the ubuntu channel, but worth an ask anyway - has anyone got links to, or had experience installing .. compiz-fuzion on xubuntu?00:20

akincercameronw: I don't really understand what you hope to accomplish by that. Windows is an island that tries at every turn to prevent ships from coming to port. Linux + Samba + WINE try every way in the world to get around these limitations00:20
soundrayZzRicezZ: thanks for letting me know.00:20
ZzRicezZsoundray by any chance u know xfce as well? :)  I deleted the top panel by mistake and don't know how to get it back00:21
cameronwLol. yea i dont like windows, i was just interested in trying to get it to run both type of programs.00:21
BlueRideri would install ubuntu on usb stick, but it's still not enough, is there any way i can install ubuntu with less than 2 gb?00:21
Peloathem,  I suggest you install all the libxine pakcage that's all I can suggest, I don't realy recall why I stopped using totem-xine, might have been a quesiton of codex but I don'T think so00:21
BlueRiderthe actual size on the stick is somewhere around 1,7 gig00:22
smartfaceHey, my HP DV 2000 runs 7.04, and when I hook up the VGA port to my TV, nothing happens, what should I do?:00:22
akincerWINE is your best bet. If something doesn't work, either file a report with winehq.org and/or just keep trying as new versions come out.00:22
* Pelo might have made a convert today, but it's not sure yet , he's supposed to give ubu a try 00:22
pike_BlueRider: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BootToRAM00:22
BlueRiderthanks00:22
soundrayZzRicezZ: I think there is a ~/.xfce directory -- if you log out and delete that from the console, it will be recreated based on defaults. You'll lose all your other customizations, though00:22
eric__sudo apt-get install sun-java6-plugin         complains that the package is only referred to by another package... how do I get the java plugin for firefox?00:22

smartfaceeric__, check out automatix00:23
akincereric: install the ubuntu restricted extras00:23
BlueRideranother solution to my problem would be to burn the image i need to burn unto the memory stick00:23
pike_BlueRider: might be happier with a knoppix disk00:23
athemPelo, problem I have is that gstreamer gives me some choppy playback on some formats while they do work flawlessly under KDE using Kaffeine and the xine backend. but i prefer gnome ;)00:23

sdubois92-laptopCoastsid1: ghttpd00:24
* smartface is still wondering how to output to his tv :(00:24
eric__Pici, so how *do* I get the java plugin for firefox00:24
Peloathem, install all the gstreamer packages in the repos then,  but I can't make any promisses,  some formats just play better on other player,  I have totem, xine, mplayer installed, just in case I need them,  I didn't install vlc this time around , I didn't use it often enought00:24
spl0itcoastsid1: I'd suggest learning how to manage them - it will pay off in the long run00:24
Picieric__: install sun-java6-plugin00:25
eric__I did the "install this plugin" with firefox and it installed icedtea-java7-jre however java still does not work in firefox00:25
sdubois92-laptopCoastsid1: http://85.214.17.244/gadmintools/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=45&Itemid=3600:25
eric__Pici, it says the package does not exist but is referred to by another package...00:25
akincersmartface: check out the MythTV project. You'll find loads of information on how to get your computer and television playing well together00:25
Picieric__: What version of Ubuntu00:25
eric__Pici, gutsy. I am not sure why I am having so many problems on the latest release =\00:25
Peloeric__, that icedtea thing says java7,  you can only get up to java6 in linux I beleive,00:25
athemPelo: this is the error message totem gives me when trying to open any file so far: "Video codec 'xxyy' is not handled. You might need to install additionale plugins to be able to play some types of movies00:25
pike_smartface: you might /join #mythtv-users and ask00:26
eric__Pelo, that doesn't answer anything, though00:26
Coastsid1I would love to take time to jump into linux with both feet, but unfortunately I'm self employed and work keeps me buried with all the PC work fixing microsoft issues... thus the reason I went for ubuntu, to ease into it.00:26
Peloathem, try looking up the error msg in the forum, www.ubuntuforums.org00:26
smartfacethanks pike_00:26
soundraypike_: thanks for the link -- a good one (toram)00:26
Picieric__: That package is in the multiverse repo, you need to have that enabled.00:26
athemPelo: ok, will do. thx00:26
Peloeric__, sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre00:26
eric__Pici, thought I did... hmmm00:26
sdubois92-laptopCoastsid1: Ubuntu is a great beginner Linux OS00:26
akincereric: 1) Applications > Add/Remove 2) Make sure the Show section at the top says "All available applications" 3) Search for "flash" 4) Select "Ubuntu restricted extras 5) Click Apply Changes00:27
spl0itcoastsid1 at least with regards to apache2, it really isn't that hard, read some documentation, and a couple of howto's and you should be well on your way :)00:27

avisi have the boinc manager installed in ubuntu.  how do i setup the software to run rosetta@home ?02:03
DownhillGamessoftware raid, you say? why not your onboard chip or whatever?02:03
Househ02:04
Houseoops02:04
avisis software raid fast ?02:04
DownhillGamescan be, sure... are your disks fast?02:04
avisstandard 7200rpm barracudas02:04
NutubuntuDownhillGames, no RAID controller on the mobo, and no good reason not to run it in software02:05
DownhillGamesah right02:05
Nutubuntuavis, what DG said - can be fast, sure02:05
avisthank you Nutubuntu02:05
DownhillGamesNutubuntu, I had to reinstall LinuxMint thanks to that stupid problem.02:05
avisanyone have experience running rosetta@home ?02:05
DownhillGamesNutubuntu, I caused it tho... I switched on my RAID _after_ install and it cleared the magic crap (some key for the partitions) and blahb lahb al blahbhslhsd.... I had to reinstall to fix it02:06
DownhillGamesI tried reinstalling grub, the kernel, etc... nothin02:06
_aibhow can I print the version (Feisty/Gusty etc..) of ubuntu i'm presently on?02:06
DownhillGamesheh... cat /etc/* | grep Ubuntu02:07
crdlb!version02:07
ubotuTo find out what version of Ubuntu you have, type « lsb_release -a » in a !shell02:07
DownhillGamesor that02:07
_aibthanks02:07
riotkittie_aib: you can try lsb_release  in a term, or if that doesnt work cat /etc/lsb-base/02:07
riotkittie_aib: you can try lsb_release  in a term, or if that doesnt work cat /etc/lsb-release  <<< rather02:07
NutubuntuDownhillGames ... sounds like a bad situation :/    I decided to setup the RAID at install (was building a new box), and it mostly works fine, but every now and then it boots into the busybox (initramfs), not sure why02:07
bluefox83how do i change gid and uid ?02:07
DownhillGamesNutubuntu, did you change the disk order or something?02:07
jribbluefox83: usermod02:08
junkboxdo you have to do anything special to add memory to a ubuntu machine.  i had 512 and replaced it with a 1G and it freaked out.  best i could tell the chips were a good match.02:08
junkboxso anything special i would need to do?02:08
NutubuntuNo ... it's just as it was when I installed it. When it occurs, I reboot, usually only once, and generally get my usual boot sequence and login02:08
DownhillGamesO_o02:09
DownhillGamescraziness02:09
DownhillGamesI wonder how bad x64 SUCKS in Ubuntu... wonder if it's any nicer than XP or Fedora02:09
Renganyone know how to add back vacuum effect on minimize in compiz animation section?02:10
bruenig!compiz | Reng02:10
DownhillGamesReng, enable the "animation" plug in then check it's prefs02:10
ubotuReng: Compiz (compositing window manager) and XGL (X server architecture layered on top of OpenGL) - Howto at http://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager - help in #compiz-fusion02:10
DownhillGamesshould be on the "Minimize" tab ;)02:10

orangeflywhere does ubuntu install crossover office....???....it's not in my apps menu....02:13
ajnewboldHas anyone else ever run into the problem where you do a fresh install of 7.10 and the default screen resolution is way too big, so you drop it down to something somewhat smaller and then the whole thing breaks and you're stuck at 640x480 forever?02:13
athemis there a way to increase scrollspeed on my mousewheel?02:13
scguy318ajnewbold: not me, but if X doesn't want to use any higher reses, sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg or the like02:14
anizeeI fucked up my xorg.con02:15
anizeef02:15
anizeehow do I get ubuntu to rerecognize the hardware02:15
ajnewboldscguy318: well, the odd problem is that everything works fine at the higher res (which is the default) --- things only go bonkers when I actually reduce the resolution.  And by "bonkers" I mean it jams up into 640x480, and won't let me change it to anything else once it's stuck there02:15
alphinwhen firefox has to be forced to quit and leaves pieces of the website on my screen how do I get them off?02:16
ajnewboldI've reinstalled 7.10 like four times over this :(02:16
bluefox83exactly how would i change user bluefox's uid and gid to 1000 ? i need the command since using man to figure it out isn't working....02:16
edwarddoes anyone know some boot cheat codes on the startup of a kernel? .. im jsut trying to get into the system, and it won't let me02:16
alphinthey arent called cheat codes02:16
alphincommands02:16
jribbluefox83: what did you try?02:16
anizeeor wahts the genaric xorg.conf02:16
edwardi just installed UBCD to my usb drive02:16
scguy318edward: cheat codes sound like you're trying to get infinite uptime cheat or something :P02:17
bluefox83just tell me how to do it, i apparently didn't try the right thing...02:17
edwardnow i scguy318  thanks02:17
Evanlecscguy318: hey dude02:17
jribbluefox83: tell me what you tried02:17
DownhillGamesReng, then you can't use it for that specific thing.02:17
scguy318Evanlec: hallo02:17
alphinscguy318, hey02:17
DownhillGamesk, now I'm out02:17
scguy318alphin: hello02:17
alphinI fixed my internet02:17
lousygaruaanyone used wacom here before? i got some questions02:17
bluefox83jrib, about a half dozen things. all of them around the lines of sudo usermod --g 1000 bluefox02:18
scguy318alphin: yay02:18
MartinJDHi - can anyone help throw some ideas into the ring for the reasons why my sound is so slow when playing video? Its mainly when playing XVID. The video seems to play at normal speed, but the sound around half.02:18
Evanlecscguy318: so im connected to my buntu box with ssh via putty, how do i get Deluge to start? it gives me errors about no X server found02:18
alphinnow my messages in system log say booting up ndiswrapper and my wireless cards name02:18
jribbluefox83: -g, not --g02:18
scguy318Evanlec: tunnel X?02:18
scguy318Evanlec: or use VNC to start Deluge02:18
Evanlecscguy318: to widnows?02:18
scguy318Evanlec: *start Deluge in the VNC session on your desktop02:18
bluefox83bluefox@ubuntu-server:/Shared/Clay$ sudo usermod -g 1000 bluefox02:18
bluefox83usermod: unknown group 100002:18
Evanlecscguy318: i cant seem to get vnc working02:18
scguy318Evanlec: or perhaps set the DISPLAY var02:18
scguy318Evanlec: DISPLAY=:0 or w/e02:19
jribbluefox83: yes, so that tells you what is wrong02:19
alphinbut scguy318  when you have to force quit something and pieces of it remain on your screen how do you clean it off?02:19
bluefox83jrib, so what is wrong?02:19
ajnewboldas a recent switched to Ubuntu, is it normal to feel like the fonts all look like ass?02:19
ajnewboldswitcher*02:19
jribbluefox83: there's no such group... why do you want to do this?02:19
tritiumajnewbold: please try not to use vulgarity02:19
scguy318alphin: that stuff should be gone when the app quits, if not a last rest would be to restart the X server02:19
TheShadowFirst time user with Blank Screen on install anyone willing to lend me a hand?02:19
ajnewboldtritium: Ah, sorry02:19
scguy318TheShadow: sure, sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg in Recovery Mode02:20
aviswhat ports need to be open for boinc manager and boinc client ?02:20
scguy318TheShadow: select vesa for driver02:20
bluefox83jrib, because i can't get the right permissions from nfs when i write to my share02:20
scguy318avis: none I think, its all outgoing02:20
alphinscguy318, it always happens and I do need to reboot and I hate doing it02:20
avisthank you02:20
Evanlecscguy318: there's no way to just launch the app in my other session?02:20
bluefox83jrib, i have uid and gid 1000 on my system and 1001 on the server02:20
scguy318alphin: you dont have to reboot, just restart the X server02:20
TheShadowwhat do I need to do to get into recovery mode I can't get past the splash02:20
scguy318Evanlec: which other session?02:20
Evanlecscguy318: i mean, im logged in locally, but also connected by ssh (same user)02:21
scguy318TheShadow: its in the GRUB menu02:21
orangeflywhere does ubuntu install crossover office....???....it's not in my apps menu....02:21
scguy318TheShadow: press Esc, then select Recovery Mode02:21
jribbluefox83: create a group with gid 1000 I guess then, but maybe you should wait for someone familiar with nfs to see if there is a better solution than this02:21
scguy318Evanlec: so you wish to start an app via SSH and have it run on the local X?02:21
tritiumorangefly: it's not an official ubuntu package.  That's a question for the makers of crossover office.02:22
Evanlecscguy318: yea, i just want deluge running (downloading) while im at work02:22
scguy318Evanlec: I guess just type like02:22
PiranhaPCan somebody tell me how can I fire up Ubuntu from within an already running linux userland?  The goal is to boot a Ubuntu on an embedded device using a USB HDD.  The bios is very basic and supports only loading a kernel; no initrd.  So the initially-booted custom linux will only need to delay 5 seconds (to allow the USB mass storage to be detected) and then .. somehow .. load Ubuntu  (kernel+initrd) from the USB drive.02:22
scguy318Evanlec: DISPLAY=:0 deluge02:22
scguy318Evanlec: something like that02:23
orangeflyjust wondered if anyone else had that problem....crossover worked fine in fiesty....02:23
MartinJDCrossover installed fine for me on Ubuntu.02:23
Evanlecscguy318: mm okay02:23
mechungcould someone tell me what    svcs -a | grep apache    would do?02:23
scguy318Evanlec: I'm not totally sure if that works but worth a shot02:23
Evanlecscguy318: i tried doing like deluge & to launch it in the background, but didnt work02:23
PiranhaPCan grub do what I want?02:24
scguy318Evanlec: that won't do it, it still wont find an X session02:24
edwardscguy318, can you help me out with a ubce to usb?02:24
TheShadowThis is happening during the install. no GRUB. I'm popping in my disk and booting from it and I get the "Start or install" menu and no option I try works02:24
edwardubcd02:24
Evanlecscguy318: yea...would rtorrent work?02:24
TheShadowthey all just go to blank02:24
scguy318TheShadow: tried safe graphics?02:24
TheShadowoh yah02:24
scguy318Evanlec: sure02:24
TheShadownothinh02:24
scguy318Evanlec: just nohup it of course02:25
TheShadowmy monitor is reciving no sig02:25
scguy318TheShadow: in that case you'll have to use alternate CD unfortunately02:25
scguy318!alternate | TheShadow02:25
ubotuTheShadow: The Alternate CD (available as of Dapper) is the classical text-mode installation CD. Use it if you wish to upgrade via CD, or for an "expert" mode install. For normal installs, use the Desktop CD, which is also a "Live" CD - See also !Minimal02:25
TheShadowthought so02:25
Dino_Hai02:25
scguy318TheShadow: post install we can fix X server issues02:25
TheShadowright but not before02:25
Dino_I'm installing KDE right now...02:25
scguy318Evanlec: do actually test my suggestions to see if they work :)02:26
Dino_Mmm... KDE02:26
scguy318Evanlec: I'm just citing from secondary knowledge, so I might be dead wrong02:26
Renghey guys i accidently hide menu bar on xchat. how can i bring it back?02:26
avisi formatted a external hard drive with mkfs.ext3.  i did not choose a partition just used the whole disk.  when i turn the hard drive on, ubuntu doesn't respond.  no icons on gnome for the drive.  would like to mount it for user02:26
scguy318edward: putting Ubuntu CD on USB?02:26
scguy318not sure, but perhaps !install would be helpful02:26
Evanlecscguy318: alright, i think i need to learn how to use screen too ;p02:26
scguy318!install | edward02:26

sacamanoCan someone help me? I did a fresh install of Gutsy and there is definitely some kind of mem leak in my NetworkManager. It was fine for a while but now it's just constantly surging to take 95%+ of CPU after an 30minutes or so03:26
Ax3grimlock / sipsipclick: i found nvidia-glx-new in synaptic should I grab that?03:26
grimlocktry that03:26
sipsipclickAx3, you should use the restricted drivers unless you have stability issues.  installing them might overwrite changes to xorg.conf though, i don't know03:26
tritiumbruenig: I've never had any troubles with aptitude before03:26
Ax3so hold off on the xorg.conf change and try glx first?03:26
sainzeo_Ely: next, click the arrow next to "apps" then look for "nautilus" and click the arrow next to that03:26

_boysdontcryOops.... found no lightscribe in synaptic uoh...03:27
mjbrookssacamano, a mem leak would involve your memory taken up, not your processor being maxed03:27
sacamanomjbrooks well it does both03:28
Ax3back in a few hopefully :) thx grimlock / sipsipclick - i'll report back as soon as im able... lol03:28
Jordan_UCoyPraetorian, You can also get it from the Ubuntu Commercial Repository03:28
high-freqhello is there a program that will open a paperport scan file with ext .max?  has anyone opened one before?03:28
sfire_boysdontcry: that just means you won't be able to burn lightscribe labels03:28
fignutsUndead_Zeus: type "sudo nautilus" from terminal, then enter your pw03:28
sfire_boysdontcry: the drive itself will still work03:28
sacamanoit's taking up currently 93% of CPU and 35% of memory03:28
sainzeo_Undead_Zeus: i believe you need to have root privileges in order to alter files in that directory, therefore, open a terminal window and type sudo cp "path1" "path2" - it should then prompt you for your root password03:28
_boysdontcry<sfire> : i was planning to buy one...03:28

robotoworksThanks for the help, may I ask what channel I can go to for real help?03:31
Jordan_UCoyPraetorian, Try installing the lastest version from wine's repos and if that doesn't work try moving your .wine directory to see if it03:32
sfireCoyPraetorian: I would try re-installing wine.. if that didn't work I would try building from source03:32

jonny5Yeah Regular xchat is much better.03:46
Sir_Sidrobotoworks, can you explain?03:47
offipsoPokerFacePenguin and others, perhaps my question should instead be: why does the gui network tool change my routing tables and automatically bring interfaces back up that I have specifically turned off with ifconfig?03:47

krisbo9000hey is it possible to install grub to a floppy from windows03:47
robotoworksWhat do you mean by chipset?03:48
WindowsSuxi need a link for some good ubuntu docs, like on apache on other packages is there one?03:48
Sir_Sidrobotoworks, the chip the card runs on03:48
sfearshello03:48
offipsoWindowsSux, the best way to find documentation for specific programs is to search for it without limiting yourself to docs just about ubuntu03:48
robotoworksHow would I find that, sorry total noob03:48
offipsowindowssux, for example apache has good documentation on their site03:48
Sir_SidWindowsSux, you can type the man APPNAME in console and get the manual file as well03:48
Sir_Sidrobotoworks, google for your card03:49
PokerFacePenguinmorgan: a command to get you an ip address for your interface etho is "sudo dhclient eth0" .........try that after you plug in the wire03:49

PokerFacePenguinmorgan: you are trying to get your isp/router to give you an ip address so that your computer can talk to other computers on the network03:51
Sir_Sidrobotoworks, look if it mentions chipset somewhere03:51
offipsoWindowsSux: Keep in mind that wine might not work well for graphically-intense programs. There's an alternative to it, Cedega I think it's currently called03:51
WindowsSuxlike the setup file of a xp app?03:51
docenergyWindowsSux: it will run it03:51
Sir_SidWindowsSux, yes, a .exe file will install in wine.03:51
PokerFacePenguinmorgan: after the command, try to surf the net with your browser03:51
docenergyWindowsSux: if it's a setup file then yes it will install it03:51

sfearsthanks.. will try that03:51
cabroni_TOO NICE!!!!03:51
robotoworksIt doesnt mention chipset03:51

morganPokerFacePenguin: hey it works, the icons dont look like they do on my laptop when I plug it in, but Im not worried about looks, im looking for functionality, is this something that will need to be done with each reboot or each time its on a new network?03:54
docenergyWindowsSux: sets up wine so it can emulate properly03:54
offipsokrisbo9000, there might be a way to make a boot disk that can boot operating systems on the different partitions, but I dont' know if you can install it to a floppy..and if you could, if it would be useful03:54

sfears3d driver?03:55
VovkWindowsSux, IE 7 is only for windows (assuming you're talking about internet explorer) firefox is superior anyway03:55
robotoworksWill ndiswrapper do the trick or is it only part of it?03:55
PokerFacePenguinmorgan: there are multiple possibilities for why, but you probably have more than one nic installed and your interfaces set up improperly somehow, dhclient will ask the network for an ip for whatever interface you specify03:55
sfirerobotoworks: it will do the trick.. I have to use that for my laptops wireless card03:55

antmenjcould it be:  sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper04:04
bruenigtritium, not a big deal04:04
Vovkthere are a few ways to install things in ubuntu - you can get .deb files, .tar.gz files, or the repositories04:04
Boratbruenig, what do i do from there?04:04
blackvdhaving a small prob here. added http://hendrik.kaju.pri.ee/ubuntu thirdparty sources but I still cant find screenlets when searching? running gutsy.04:04
bruenigBorat, open that file with a text editor and go to town04:05
Vovkthe repos are by far the easiest way, just type "sudo apt-get install xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" where the x is the name of your program04:05
bruenigBorat, it is all well commented, just read it and change stuff as appropriate04:05
Vovk.deb files work like windows .exe files. download and run them04:05
tritiumVovk: not exactly04:05
Vovk.tar.gz files have instructions to install them inside of them. just look for something like a readme04:05

sykehi! I've noticed that my wireless with WPA2 is much slower in linux than when booted into windows. It's a bcm43xx card. I have noticed in that the "Rx invalid crypt" number in iwconfig goes up by one every few seconds, which may be related. how do I fix this?04:12
BsdGangsterwhy does Ubuntu seem to be like Debian-BETA?04:12
morganis iTunes possible in Ubuntu?04:12
BurlynnEvanlec_: get the deb off the net. google for it. there's all kinds of tutorials for freenx on gutsy04:12
CrevilOI need help creating a bridge for VirtualBox, my XP client isn't getting DHCP.04:12
helpyhelpertonEvanlec_ hmm what about uh ssh?04:12
sfearsthis switch to linux has been far from smooth... lots of things i can't get to work right, and i'm rarely hardwired to the net.. it's been a pain in the ass04:12
Evanlec_helpyhelperton: im on ssh, but i wanna get Deluge started so it continues my downloads while im here at work04:12
tonyyarussomorgan: It _might_ be possible with Wine, but I haven't succeeded yet.04:12
morganthats what i was afraid of04:12
Evanlec_helpyhelperton: but it gives me "no x display found"04:12
PokerFacePenguinsyke: try using regular old wpa, your wireless card might not support version 2 under linux04:12
tonyyarussomorgan: looking to play, or buy?04:13
helpyhelpertonsfears: Yeah I dpn't blame you, I stil dual boot and when I don't have to dive into things, I just go the easy way and use winblows04:13
blahblahxwhy does ubiquity install open office?04:13
tonyyarussoblahblahx: why wouldn't it?04:13
sfearsi downlaod ndiswrapper & don't have build-essential, i get build-essential & don't have header files for the make install... one thing after another04:13
blahblahxbecause my custom livecd didnt have it installed tonyyarusso04:13
kirikamy borders disappeared on all apps does anyone know how i can get them back04:13
helpyhelpertonEvanlec_ yeah I never used ssh with X, so I'm the wrong guy to ask for that... although I have had success with vnc04:13
morgannot sure, I am installing Ubuntu on a laptop for a co-worker, she really wants itunes, I guess she would be purchasing, playing and synching04:14
WindowsSuxcan i use wine to install my wireless driver?04:14
Burlynnsfears: you dont need to compile ndiswrapper, its in the repositories04:14
sfearsyeah.. now that i figred that out i'm in the middle of installing 7.1004:14
WindowsSuxcan i use wine to install my wireless driver?04:14
sfearsand by the time that finishes i won't have my hard wired connection anymore04:14
sykepokerface: it does work, it's just a bit slower04:14
sfearsso it'll be another week untill i can apt-get04:14
robotoworkswww.robotoworks.prosoftstudio.com/forum please I need major help!04:14
helpyhelpertonWindowsSux: Im thinking no04:15
sainzeo_WindowsSux: did that link help you out?04:15
VovkWindowsSux: probably not04:15
Vovkalthough there are open source drivers for almost everything04:15
Vovkyour best bet is to try to get a new wireless router, this time making sure that it is compatible with linux04:16
PokerFacePenguinsyke: but it is complaining of invalid crypts, which leads me to believe that you might need to back it down from wpa2 to test the issue04:16
sandaru1robotoworks:?04:16
robotoworksYeah?04:16
helpyhelpertonWindowsSux: although it seems that the wireless support is getting better. I actually was able to get mine working with the new upgrade, I just had to tweak with the settings to be able to conncet properly04:16
bruenigall routers should be compatible with linux04:16
bruenigrouters have their own OS04:16
sykepokerface: it's one invalid crypt every 10 seconds or so04:16
sykeI'm still getting about 18k/sec via HTTP04:16
WindowsSuxyes thanks so much, u rule!!04:16
davubunt1Hi guys, I am having trouble trying to upgrade to gutsy from feisty because my cddrive doesn't seem to be detecting my gutsy CD. Can someone help me please?04:16
sykebut I get 50k/sec in windows04:16
Vovkone more thing I've learned... still, some wireless drivers do not work so well with linux04:16
sainzeo_WindowsSux: haha, good luck with it!04:17
sandaru1davubunt1: did you download alternative install CD?04:17
johnsmith2If I want to set permissions on a device at boot time is it correct to add 'KERNEL=="video[0-9]", MODE="0666"' to the /etc/udev/rules.d/40-permissions.rules file?04:17
davubunt1no what;s the alternative CD04:17
johnsmith2or is there an easier way?04:17
robotoworksSo can someone help me, please go to my site its less crowded there04:17
helpyhelpertondavubunt1: Do you know if the CD was burned as a bootable .ISO rather thanthe iso as a file?04:17
jonny5Anyone new to Ubuntu, and want to talk in a private chat????????04:17
WindowsSuxi cant get my wireless to work, i got a dell latitude d420, the new super slim, one, and yet i have to use my old linksys wireless b card, it sux!!04:17
sandaru1davubunt1: you can't use normal live CD to upgrade.04:18
Vovkit is a text based installer for ubuntu... but it sounds like there's a problem with your cd drive mounting04:18
davubunt1Okay first04:18
WindowsSuxfedora 8, recognized it04:18
kaedavubunt1: you can't use normal live CD to upgrade. <- i didn't know that :O04:18
davubunt1I burned it using Gutsy04:18
WindowsSuxfedora 8 rocks, ubuntu is still cleaner lookin04:18
Burlynnyou cant upgrade via CD without the alternative CD04:18
Vovkdavubunt1: can you actually see any CDs when you put them into the disk drive?04:18
sfireWindowsSux: ndiswrapper is your friend04:18
davubunt12nd I can install gutsy over the top of feisty using the liveCD04:18
sfireuse that and almost any wireless card will work04:18
davubunt1I'm sure of that04:19
sandaru1kae: normal live cd only supports installation. in fact, it have the file system compressed not packages04:19
WindowsSuxhow do i run xp in a window on my ubuntu box?04:19
kaeoh, got it :)04:19
sfiredavubunt1: don't do it.. gutsy sucks.. feisty is much better (IMHO)04:19
davubunt1Whatever... you are missing the point. The disk isn't being detected04:19
VovkI'm not very good at networking/webdesign/anything else web-related... yet.   can someone tell me what ndswrapper does?04:19
Burlynndavubunt1: its going to try and format whatever partition you install it on04:19
sainzeo_WindowsSux: you can do a virtual machine (www.virtualbox.org) or you could VNC into a different windows machine04:19
davubunt1Well I've used both and I like gutsy much better04:19
helpyhelpertonWindowsSux: VMWARE04:19
sandaru1davubunt1: do you want to upgrade keeping old settings or do a reinstall erasing feisty?04:19
robotoworksI dont know how to get ndiswrapper or use it, please come to www.robotoworks.prosoftstudio.com/forum to help me out please!04:20
davubunt1That's fine I have a seperate /home and /04:20
helpyhelpertonsainzo_: ok your answer is better.. but yeah any virtualization software04:20
floresc8Hi, I asked this question yesterday with no answer: I am trying to connect to a PEAP network using Gutsy.  Does anyone have a solution?04:20
WindowsSuxcan i install vmware on ubuntu?04:20
kaegood to read that, next time i'll get the alternatives to save download time...04:20
davubunt1reinstall... but that's beside the point the computer isn't detecting the cd or any cd04:20
sfirerobotoworks: how about reading the link I gave you04:20
BurlynnWindowsSux: yes04:20
tw73hello04:20
sfirerobotoworks: you haven't had nearly enough time to read it and try it04:20
sainzeo_WindowsSux: yes, you may wanna try VirtualBox though first as it has a cool "Slipstream" function04:20
PokerFacePenguinsyke: read http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-353598.html and check out the comments from jml, may be a similiar issue04:20
Vovkdavubunt1: easiest way, do a full install of ubuntu gutsy, keep your /home partition and wipe the / partition to create a new one04:20
sykepokerface: will read it -- thanks! :04:21
syke:)04:21
Burlynndavubunt1: it wont boot it or wont detect it when an OS is running?04:21
robotoworksI tried reading it, but it is above my undertstanding of Ubuntu and computers04:21
davubunt1Vovk/: Thanks. I know that already. That is my plan. The problem is the disk is being detected by my machine04:21
robotoworksPlease go to my site so we cvan talk without distraction04:21
davubunt1N either04:21
helpyhelpertonWindowsSux: Yes although I was having trouble the other day when I tried I suggest finding a deb and installing rather than using the repo for vmware04:21
helpyhelpertonsainzo_: what is slipstream?04:21
kaeoh, when i tried to install vmware, ubuntu accused that it coudn't install it in my machine, but i already istalled vmware in other distros, how should i proceed?04:21
davubunt1Burlynn: I try to boot from it and that doesn't work and I have checked boot order in the bios04:21
PokerFacePenguinsyke: not sure about your supplicant file, but it might get you headed in the right directions04:22
davubunt1I also put the disk in and normally nautilus would mount the disk and open a window04:22
sainzeo_helpyhelperton: it will allow you to run the virtual machine without the window so that it appears like its directly on the desktop04:22
davubunt1but that isn't happening04:22
sandaru1davubunt1: may be you burned it in a high speed.. try a lower speed04:22
Burlynndavubunt1: bad iso? bad disk?04:22
davubunt1It opens fine on my opther machine04:22
helpyhelpertonsainzo_: oh ok i have seen that function on a youtube compiz video04:22
davubunt1The one I burnt it with04:22
davubunt1Could that still be the burn speed04:23
tw73hello, can anyone answer me how to install software updates locally, i have 100+ users so i want to download updates on one server and then others install from that server. Please help me!04:23
Vovkdavubunt1: some machines can't read disks that are burned too fast. use a very slow setting04:23
sainzeo_helpyhelperton: its also possible with vmware, but you need to use another program and do all this other nonsense haha04:23
kaehow do i install virtualbox? apt?04:23
sandaru1davubunt1: yes, it should read properly in the burner.04:23
sainzeo_kae: if you use apt, it will install the opensource version which doesn't have all the features04:23
Vovkjust do Add/Remove programs kae :) it's very easy for common things like that04:24
IsaqueFDhello04:24
sainzeo_kae: otherwise, you can download a DEB straight from their website04:24
Burlynndavubunt1: does the computer's drive your having trouble running it on support the kind of disk it is burned on?04:24
floresc8Does anyone know how to get PEAP using MSCHAPv2 on Gutsy for 802.1x wireless?04:24
helpyhelpertondavubunt1: Some people have had problems with certain disk brands too.. I'd make sure the cd is bootable, check the hash also...04:24
Vovkor, follow sainzeo_'s advice... it's better04:24
kaeand how do i get all the features? a paid version?04:24
davubunt1Hnag on it doesn't matter I tried other CDs and DVDs in this drive too and they aren't working04:24
tw73hello, can anyone answer me how to install software updates locally, i have 100+ users so i want to download updates on one server and then others install from that server. Please help me!04:24
sainzeo_kae: no, its still free, just closed source04:24
davubunt1It's the drive not the disk(s)04:24
sandaru1tw73: there are some solutions like apt-proxy.. but i'm not familiar with those. I can suggest you a workaround04:24
IsaqueFDthe modem "vostro1000" has working in Ubuntu 7.10?04:24
kaeyou guys rock, thank you for your help :D04:24
sainzeo_kae: anytime - goodluck!04:25
tw73sandaru1: thanks04:25
floresc8I have tried to to find any information on it, but none of the suggestions are working.04:25

helpyhelpertonsainzo_: virtualbox: Can you install new OS or is it just a virtual player?04:26
sainzeo_helpyhelperton: you can install a new OS04:26
sainzeo_helpyhelperton: you need the CD or ISO of the OS though of course04:27
helpyhelpertonsainzo_: and virtualbox is free?04:27
Vovkdoes anyone know how I can change the colour of the "burn" animation in Compiz-Fusion?  Beryl set all fire the same color (user choice) but the compiz-fusion burn animation only seems to be fire coloured. I'd like it to be a very dark reddish black04:27
sainzeo_helpyhelperton: yes sir04:27
the_nakaiihello room04:27
CochiseIRLhello the_nakaii04:27
Jordan_U_helpyhelperton, Yes, and there is a fully open source version and a version with extra proprietary features ( also free as in Beer )04:27
VovkI have set the color of the "paint fire" option to the shade that I would like... but not the burn animation for opening and closing windows04:27
the_nakaiii am a newbie to linux04:27
helpyhelpertonsainzo_: well thats better cause vmware server cost some clamshells... is the emulation pretty decent?04:27
Vovkthe_nakaii: I hope you like it :D04:28
WindowsSuxwjat is slip stream?04:28
the_nakaiii run a mac machine04:28
sainzeo_helpyhelperton: vmware server is actually free now as well - i believe virtualbox is much faster than vmware though04:28
WindowsSuxwhat is slipstream?04:28
CochiseIRLhelpyhelperton, virtualbox is great, really fast04:28
scguy318WindowsSux: when you integrate service packs and patches onto a Windows installation CD04:28
kaei didn't know it went free...04:28

scguy318WindowSux: if that's not the context you were interested, then clarify04:29
sainzeo_kae: yeah, you're just required to register in order to get a serial - but no money04:29

the_nakaiii didn't know that the use of the enter key was a no-no04:32

PokerFacePenguinhelpyhelperton: i never fooled with it cuz i always thought it was above my hardware, quite surprising.  haven't tried it with kde yet, thats next :)04:40
PokerFacePenguinhelpyhelperton: or maybe something lighter even04:40
ThecksI tried elive, it was OK but so lacking04:40
CochiseIRLits not a bad distro for first offering and its nice and simple. fluxbuntu is pretty good too04:40
Vovkactually, I find E to be very light, it uses 2D effects instead of the 3D composting effects of compiz04:40
davubunt1Okay that's great everyone jumps in with advice and then no one responds when it's clear the advice didn't work04:40

davubunt1Is it possible that it is a software problem?04:45
helpyhelpertondavubunt1: Man I don't know sounds like your drive is playing hardball04:45
Vovkuser_: are you using compiz? what version of ubuntu are you using? have you tried disabling all desktop effects?04:45
the_nakaiianyone know if 7.10 is buggy?04:45
helpyhelpertondavubunt1: It is possible sure... can you try to put another drive in to make sure it isn't the drive?04:46
DShepherdthe_nakaii, it seems to have its ups and downs04:46
Vovkthe_nakaii: it has it's bugs, but I have run into very few of them... there might be different ones for mac tho04:46
user_im actually using Xubuntu the latest version04:46
tomddavubunt1,  you're inserting a cd in your ubuntu box and the cd doesn't work, but it works in other computers? what are  the other computers it works in? is it only for data cds (burnt isos)?04:46
sainzeo_the_nakaii: i've been running 7.10 even before it was officially released and haven't had any problem, but i'm sure there are as there usually is in any OS04:46
davubunt1helpyhelperton: is your screen name ironic or satirical?04:46
davubunt1tomd: my other machine is already upgraded to gutsy04:46
davubunt1I burnt and ran the disk in my gutsy laptop and it worked04:47
tomddavubunt1: and what kind of cd are you putting in?04:47
Vovkdavubunt1: is this the new cd that you burnt at a lower speed?04:47
helpyhelpertondavubunt1: Well it was meant to be both, which is also ironic, which is also satirical... it could keep going on into infinity04:47
LotacusHey fella's anyone know how to get my laptop fan working again. I only notied it hasn't kicked in after the laptop has started to melt to my legs.04:47
davubunt1Vovk: it was burnt at the lowest speed possible 4.704:47
Dr_WillisLotacus saw a laptop the other day had lint in the fan - that kept it from running.04:48
Vovkdavubunt1: strange... and you're sure your bios support it?04:48
helpyhelpertondavubunt1: I was asking if you could take a drive from another computer and put it into the one with the problem and see if that drive would boot it04:48
the_nakaiiI used the mac version of 7.10 both as a burnt livecd and as an upgrade from a new install of 7.04. it won't even boot the live cd and the upgrade wont boot after install tho 7.04 runs just great! Go figure!04:48
davubunt1tomd: if you mean the brand it's a maxwell. But I tried an imation and that isn't working either04:48
tomddavbuntu1: also, try doing this dd if=/dev/yourdrive of=file to see if you can read from the drive?, also, are you sure you have proper permissions to the drive?04:48
tomddav: i mean is it like data or audio04:48
davubunt1helpyhelperton: it's a laptop... no04:48
helpyhelpertonLotacus: Man my CPU fan never startsup anymore it takes about 30 seconds of being in the os for it to start.. I feel your pain... although my desktop does not sit on my lap...04:48
tomddavbuntu: you're not able to mount the drive?04:48
Lotacuswell I would have concidered that IF the laptop was kept in a dirty state, however, only rebooting fixes the problem.  I had this same problem before when my laptop stays on for an extended period of time running Ubuntu04:49
helpyhelpertondavubunt1: Oh maybe I glazed over that tiny shred of critical data...04:49
davubunt1tomd: correct... well it doesn't mount automatically like it does on the other machines04:49
the_nakaiiwhere do i go to find a workaround for 7.10?04:49
Vovkthe_nakaii: try the alternate install cd04:49
davubunt1helpyhelperton: easy to do :)04:49
tomddavubunt1: so it is a data cd, and the problem is it doesnt do it automatically? have you tried mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt ? (as root)04:50
the_nakaiihow long will ubuntu support 7.04?04:50
Vovkthe_nakaii: 200904:50
davubunt1the CD was burnt with gutsy from an iso it's a liveCD for gutsy04:50
tomddavubunt1: what is the device name of your drive?04:50
davubunt1tomd: no I haven't tried that command04:50
davubunt1tomd: I don't know04:51

isleshocky78I'm trying to connect my Treo 700w to my Ubuntu for syncing to Evolution. I've followed all the instructions online but I've come across the problem of Ubuntu not recognizing my Treo as a usb device.04:51
kaegOS site is up :]04:51
Vovk=]04:51
the_nakaiiVovK thanks but what makes you think that will work? Don't misunderstand I will try it04:51
tomddavubunt1: get down with the ubuntu manual on drives man... its probably /dev/scd0 or /dev/scd1 if you're using ide-scsi or if you have a scsi drive04:51
isleshocky78When I do a lsusb it doesn't show up, when I put my thumbdrive I get something in the lsusb.  Any suggestions?04:51
helpyhelpertondavubunt1: You are trying to install Gutsy right? I just want to make sure that if that is the case you set the drive to be in the first boot order in BIOS04:51
Vovkthe_nakaii: the alternate install cd often works when the live CD doesn't... it just does ( I can't explain it )04:51
davubunt1helpyhelperton: yes I'm trying to install gutsy over feisty on a laptop. yes I checked boot order04:52
tomddavubunt1, google the mount command, read a how to on mounting cd's, or read the man page for mount.. your basic command is mount -t iso9660 /dev/yourcdrom /mnt/yourmountpoint ... where iso9660 is the fs type04:52
robotoworksI just got a Cingular Wireless Broadband card... has anyone had any luck getting it to work04:52
tomdit sounds to me like you should be able to mount it with the command04:52
Vovkthe_nakaii: for instance, i was trying to install Xubuntu on a very old dell. it would boot to the live desktop, but the installer wouldn't work. So I tried the alternate CD and it worked like a dream04:53
the_nakaiithanks VovK firing up the pc and i am off to the alternat install land! Thanks again Vovk  let u know if it works for me04:53
davubunt1tomd: do I need to do that when it mounts a DVD I have fine?04:53
Vovkthe_nakaii: yw04:53
davubunt1I have a movie DVD and it mounts and starts playing the movie straight away04:53
tomddavubunt1: if its a dvd movie, it probably will just read data.. it usually only mounts the drive when there is a filesystem you'd want to browse on it, although I might be wrong..04:54
davubunt1And if it's an iso?04:54
tomdit should probably mount the iso, youd want to use the command I showed you.04:54
TillUnn!show04:54
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about show - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi04:54
tomdsomething about your drive in't alerting hotplug to the presence of a cd in it or whatever.. try looking at dmesg and see if there is any garbage in it04:55

TillUnnHello guys. I'm trying to run "show ip bgp" but system says that there's no such command& also I can't find a package with 'show' inside. What should I do?04:56
kaegOS site is up :]04:56
kaeops04:56
tomddavubunt1: just try this command:   sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom with a iso data cd in the drive.. make sure you mkdir /mnt/cdrom first04:56
kaewrong window04:56
davubunt1tomd; I tried the command sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt but it didn't work04:56
davubunt1tomd: oh... I 'll try that one04:57
tomdwhat is the output of the command when it fails in a brief form04:57
ussertomd: dump04:57
davubunt1mount: mount point /mnt/cdrom does not exist04:57
tomdmkdir /mnt/cdrom first04:57
usseroh sorry04:57
usserlol04:57
tomdsudo mkdir /mnt/cdrom  ----- actually04:57
tomdthen do it again04:57
kaewhy don't you try mounting the iso?04:58
tomdi believe thats what were doing lol04:58

Jordan_U_Does the Ubuntu DVD image contain all of main and restricted?04:58
davubunt1no medium found04:58
Vovkg'night all04:58
Jordan_U_tomd, Did it give you an error?04:58
kaegood night :]04:58
tomddavbuntu1: what does it say when you do ls -l /dev/cdrom04:58
davubunt1lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2007-11-14 22:04 /dev/cdrom -> scd004:59
tomdtry this: sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd1 /mnt/cdrom04:59
tomdmake sure there is a cd in the drive04:59
davubunt1mount: special device /dev/scd1 does not exist04:59
tomdwell, this is your last resort before you have a real problem05:00
tomdput a cd that is known to mount on other boxes in the drive and do sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom and MAKE sure that there is an iso filesystem on it05:00
tomdif that doesn't work then maybe your drive bit the dust...05:01
Dr_WillisWell.. You dont normally use /dev/sdc1 for a cd. it would be /dev/sdc or whatever. :)  and the mountpoint MUST exist beforhand.05:01
davubunt1Do I need to do that when I put the disk in my other machine nautilus opens a window showing the filesystem of the diskl05:01
Dr_Willisor am i thinking /dev/sda that may be it.05:01
tomdDr_Willis: on his system /dev/cdrom -> /dev/scd005:01
Dr_Willisi never have figured out when/where scd comes into play05:01
tomdi assumed that since his first command failed, that maybe he had two drives and the cd was in the other... and on my system i have scd0, scd1, so i went with scd105:01
tomdi think scd is for scsi emulation05:02
davubunt1\if it's scd0 why did the command you gave me have scd1 instead05:02
davubunt1?05:02
tomdi think you get sda sdb etc wheny you have authentic scsi05:02
tomddavubunt1, because i assumed you had the cd in the wrong drive ;-X05:02
CochiseIRLyup since gutsy ubuntu attachs ide drives to an emulated scsi bus05:02
Dr_Willishe could do a 'eject /dev/scd1' and see if it ejects. :)05:02
davubunt1Only have one drive05:02
tomdwell, we know he doesn't have that.. so why not try it with scd005:02
tomddavubunt1, do sudo eject /dev/scd005:03
Dr_WillisMy CDrom under gutsy is hdc and /dev/cdrom -> hdc05:03
davubunt1Yep the disk popped out05:03
tomdwhohoo!05:03
davubunt1so it's scd0 not scd105:03
davubunt1do I do that sommand again but change cd1 for scd005:04
tomdand you are sure that the disc has a valid iso filesystem? put in your linux install disc and do sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom05:04
tomdbecause we know that the linux disc works05:04
tomdno, you only have one device /dev/scd005:04
davubunt1Did it... no medium found05:05
tomdok.. there is a problem here.05:05
davubunt1Yes...05:05
davubunt1:)05:05
tomddavubunt1: do you have other operating ystems on the computer, that you could test the drive with?05:05
eboyjr1122!05:05
davubunt1Just feisty edubuntu05:05
aumhi - i'm using (up-to-date) feisty - can I expect any unpleasant surprises if i point my /etc/apt/sources.list at gutsy and dist-upgrade?05:05
SpragieI have a question; I am trying to set my monitor's refresh rate to one higher than one given by default in x server, I am using a NVidia driver (on Gutsy) with a dell monitor, I have tried using modeline generators but they are turning up funky results with (ie) pixel hz too high05:05
tomdyou have 2 ubuntu installs?05:05
davubunt1But I have two other machines05:05
davubunt1one with edgy and the other with gutsy05:06
eboyjrWow... no matter what people say, I like using Dreamweaver because it is roomier than gedit or nano or vi or whatever... the problem is, my MySQL server in on Ubuntu and Dreamweaver is on Windows. Can I run MySQL on both Windows and Ubuntu accessing the same databases?05:06
tomdthe problem is either a driver issue, kernel support for iso9660 filesystems, or the drive is trash05:06
tomdor, pebkac. but i hope not05:06
Ubuntupwnsaum very good question! id also like to know that one05:06
davubunt1Well I'd go with the former then because the drive plays this DVD05:07

helpyhelpertonrobotoworks: people will help you if they know how to, but saying that no one helps here is rude man05:11
m0towlie_: yes, only /etc/apache2/httpd.conf05:11
tritiumrobotoworks: please don't scare off people looking for help05:11
m0I really don't understand where ubuntu installs apache205:11
helpyhelpertonorionr: hmm did you try and reconfigure x?05:11
Flannelm0: It installs it in the regular place; what don't you understand?05:12
Theckshelpyhelperton: I guess he thinks people who help get paid :)05:12
merovingianAbsolute Noob here dudes: Any other IM software that has Webcam capabilities? or is there an "add-on" for pidgin?05:12
tritiumm0: dpkg -L <packagename> tells you where each file in a package is located05:12
towlie_m0 so whats the problem ?05:12
tritiummerovingian: amsn, kopete, ekiga05:12
orionrhelphelperton: how do i do that? dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg?05:12
m0It installed it fine, but why is the httpd.conf 0 bytes and it is working fine with php and all05:12
gatenhow would i go about removing the last 5 characters of a line? suchas 'hello12345', i want just hello left.05:12
merovingiantritium: i tried amsn, its kinda unstable and interface kinda sucky, but will try kopete and ekiga. THANKS!!! :)05:12
Flannelm0: Thats because httpd.conf isn't used.  Ubuntu uses the debian style of apache configuration05:12
tritiummerovingian: ekiga is installed by default.05:13
m0Flannel: I see, can you tell me what the debian style is05:13
towlie_Flannel, what do you mean ? apache is apache05:13
merovingiantritium: okay. hehe didnt know that...05:13
Flannelm0: serverwide things are in apache2.conf, site-specific things are in their respective /sites-available file, and module specific things are in /mods-available along with their .load files05:13
tomddavubunt1: something is very wrong, search for your drive model along with the phrase "ubuntu" and something will probably pop up.. if not, maybe file a bug or something05:13
robotoworksOKay sorry05:14
MidtronicHowdy, I just upgraded to Gutsy recently and now I'm having issues with TCP connections.  I'm fairly certain that my box is dropping things I don't want it to drop (for instance, port 22)05:14
davubunt1Do you know how I found out what the drive model number is?05:14
m0Flannel: ahh05:14
m0Flannel: thank you05:14
orionrany help?05:14
helpyhelpertonorionr: did you try to reconfigure x?05:15
davubunt1Because my problem is it is stopping me from upgrading. My problem is not that the drive doesn't work... if you get my meaning.05:15
ninnemanaexaile won't play music, can anyone help?05:15
orionrhelpyhelperton: how do i do that?05:15
tomddavubunt1: take a drive out of another machine and put it in and then put it back later or something05:15
m0Flannel: so they disabled documentroot and made virtual hosts?05:15
helpyhelpertondpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg05:16
davubunt1this is a laptop05:16
Flannelm0: document root is handled per virtual host.  You'll find a default site in sites-available, which has its own documentroot05:16
helpyhelpertondavubunt1: maybe try to look up by the laptop model and see if you can find any documentation on which drive model they use05:16
m0Flannel: so what is sites-enabled for? it looks exactly same as sites-available05:16
Flanneltowlie_: The apache config mentions 'debian style' of configuration and.. the other style (monolithic httpd.conf), I don't remembe what that was called exactly05:17
m0towlie_: it seems debian separated in into many files so it isn't one big file05:17
Flannelm0: the -enabled direcotries contain symlinks to the files in the -enabled directories.  To disable a site, for instance, you remove the symlink.  That way you don't have to delete the file to disbale the site/module (check the modules directory and you'll see what I mean)05:17
m0Flannel: so the symlinks should be of form  000-default ?05:18
=== hagabaka` is now known as hagabaka
Flannelm0: Doesn't really matter what you name them05:18
robotoworksIs there an IRC channel for Ubuntu themes?05:18
m0Flannel: ah, but I thought there could be only 1 site-available (which is default)05:19
xaxxonI have a box on my local network and whenever I try to ssh out from it, I get a 30 second timeout.  I haven't done anything with DNS, but I'm guessing it's a reverse lookup timeout - -but I don't know what to do about that.  first it hangs on debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_4.3p2 Debian-8ubuntu1 -- then it hangs on Unknown code krb5 19505:19
m0Flannel: to add more virtual hosts we just create another file?05:19
Flannelm0: However, you don't need to mess with symlinks yourself.  a2ensite a2dissite, a2enmod and a2dismod will enable/disable sites/modules, respectively05:19
noob69anyone has problem running applications 'Add/Remove...'05:19
m0Flannel: or we add to that file (default)05:19
Flannelm0: create another file in the -available, then use a2ensite to enable it05:19
towlie_m0 oh well i havent used apache in a while05:19
Flannelm0: no, there can be as many virtualhosts as you want05:19
noob69or 'update manager'05:20
helpyhelpertonrobotoworks: #cpmpiz-fusion or #compiz??05:20
m0Flannel: ah nice, so a2ensite will automatically do that for you05:20
robotoworksTHanx05:20
xaxxonI get the same timeout whether I connect with the name or IP address05:20
CaT[tm]well that was highly entertaining. libc broken, libncurses gone, libc didn't wanna install, cats and dogs fighting each other all over the place...05:20
KI4IKLHow do I add things to my kernel options? I'm getting "Could not locate resource region" and then the screen goes black I read i needed to add pci=routeirq to kernel options...but how?05:20
m0not bad not bad05:22
xaxxonoh I needed to turn off gssapi05:22
noob69what do i do if i can do 'Add/Remove...' applicaitons05:22
ninnemananone of my media players will play music..anyone know the solution?05:22
noob69or check for updates05:22
sainzeo_ninnemana: which type of media file?05:22
ninnemanamp305:22
m0Is there any Desktop Icon for Apache ?05:23
sainzeo_ninnemana: i believe you need to install some gstreamer plugins05:23
helpyhelpertonnoob69: if you CAN? Isn't that a good thing?05:23
m0When I was at windows, I installed wamp, and it had those nice stuff all preconfigured05:23
sainzeo_ninnemana: or perhaps the ubuntu-restricted-modules05:23
tonyyarussom0: uh, what would the desktop icon open?  it's just a background process.05:23
adastra23Anyone ever experienced a sudden loss of usb ports in linux, its not hardware, still works on another os.05:24
helpyhelpertonm0: I tried out wamp but I felt more secure using lamp05:24
noob69its a bad thing, it means i cant check for latest update05:24
noob69or install new applications05:24

andresjhello, I got a problem with my firefox/flash isntallation: sometimes it just hangs there. Doesn't let me do anything. I think it has to do with flash, for example, when in http://lernu.net/ I click on a link to hear a sound (which uses flash) this happens. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.05:52
CochiseIRLxivanari, if the fonts are funny on amsn check the forums for a script for installing it05:52
lockdxivanari: what helpy said05:53
cdm10andresj: Flash for Linux and Firefox can be an unstable combination... if you don't want to use Gnash (and you probably don't, it's not that great yet) then you'll just have to live with it I guess.05:53
lockdstill interested what 'file' says those .nbz files are05:53
helpyhelpertonlockd: but I think it may be good for him to have xp in virtual box in case he needs it for other things???05:53
andresjcmd10, yeah... but I remember that this worked before (not sure when, because didn't try it right away).05:54

helpyhelpertonxivanari: It's cat and mouse really.. after a while you will see how much easier installing is in linux06:00
JML1!ask I'm having issues getting a Dell Latitude D640 to recognize any ubuntu install disks (5.04,5.1,6.1,7.1), although it can read bootable windows install disks fine, and i've tested the ubuntu disks on other PCS, when i put the ubuntu disk in the laptop, its just cycles and spins for about 5 minutes, then if i go to windows explorer and try to view the contents of the disk, it tells me its an incorrectly formatted disk06:00
cdm10xivanari: going to Add/Remove and checking it off is hard?06:00
xivanarithe having to use a packet manager like you do and download many different files and input lines into a CLI06:00
echosaxivanari: do you use synaptec?06:00
xivanarithats not point and click06:00
Mustang50187gnome kicks ass06:00
cdm10xivanari: Well, you can always use the point-and-click version :)06:00
xivanariwell thus far everything ive gone to download has instructed me to do differently06:00
cdm10xivanari: Applications>Add/Remove06:00
cdm10xivanari: and if it's not there, System>Admin>Synaptic06:01
echosaxivanari: sure it is.. open synaptec, search what you want, check the box, click install...06:01
xivanarigod dangit.06:01
xivanarilol06:01
cdm10xivanari: Add/Remove is easier to use, but Synaptic is more powerful... I'd use Add/Remove unless you find that you need to do something that Synaptic can do.06:01
Mustang50187yep add/remove is point and click06:01
cdm10xivanari: I use the commandline even though Add/Remove and Synaptic exist... it's just faster for me.06:01
helpyhelpertonxivanari .. but sudo apt-get install becomes your friends quick06:01
cdm10helpyhelperton: yeah, definitely :)06:01
Mustang50187hell yea06:02
xivanarihellanzb wasnt on that list.06:02
helpyhelpertonxivanari: And I am a noob...06:02

cdm10!repeat | whabo06:03
ubotuwhabo: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. You can search https://help.ubuntu.com or http://wiki.ubuntu.com while you wait. Also see !patience06:03
xivanariis virtualbox the name of one i can search for in synaptic?06:03
cdm10xivanari: virtualbox btw is a little difficult to set up... not THAT difficult, you won't need to use the terminal or anything, but it's not completely straightforward06:03
helpyhelpertonxivanari: it should be yes06:04
cdm10xivanari: you can, but there's a better version available at their site06:04
cdm10helpyhelperton: i think he should use the commercial version...06:04
xivanarialright06:04
xivanaribut i dont know how to download anything from a site atm06:04
xivanarilol06:04
Mustang50187your computer might not support compiz06:04
xivanarinot and install it06:04
cdm10xivanari: http://virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads06:04
helpyhelpertoncdm10: Like I said, I've never tried virtualbox, I always used vmware, but I'm sure your right06:04
cdm10xivanari: just find the i386 one for Ubuntu 7.10, download it to your desktop, and double-click it06:04
cdm10helpyhelperton: well, I use VBox, so yeah :)06:04

JML1cdm or xiv : can u help with an install issue?06:06
noob69anyone know what error message 'Segmentation fault (core dumped)' mean06:06
cdm10!ask | JML106:06
ubotuJML1: Don't ask to ask a question. Just ask your question :)06:06
cdm10!who | JML106:06
ubotuJML1: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)06:06
Mustang50187I had a dell WLAN card wit 7.04 I had screws wit ubuntu06:06
helpyhelpertonxivanari: A lot of that could be due to other things (spyware, settings,etc inside of windows); fresh installs always make internet seem speedy06:06
Morgan555cdm10 thank you06:07
helpyhelpertonxivanari: linux has a way of keeping it that way06:07
JML1!cdm10 : any reason why a Dell D640 laptop wont read an install disk, but other PC's will, something to do with file system?06:07
helpyhelpertoncdm10: Thanks for backin me on Morgans question, I'm in XP right now so I couldn't follow up on that06:07
cdm10JML1: Is it set to boot from CD?06:08
JML1yep06:08
helpyhelpertonJML1: Are you sure it is a BOOTABLE burn?06:08
JML1cdm : i can boot from a windows install disk06:08
cdm10JML1: What sorta error do you get? Could it be the optical drive?06:08
cdm10helpyhelperton: he said it worked on other comps06:08
whaboi cant enable my normal effects anymore .... :( can anyone please help me? i would love to slide my applications into different desktops....06:08
dmzhey y'all, if i added a new service to /etc/event.d how do i force it to reload (since it's not using init & i can't init q)06:08
cdm10JML1: okay... sometimes burned discs don't work so well in some computers.06:08
helpyhelpertoncdm10: But that doesn't mean it booted on other pcs06:08
cdm10whabo: do you have your graphics drivers set up?06:08
JML1cdm : but the windows distros are all cracked copies, burnt disks06:08
helpyhelpertonwhabo: nvidia card would help .....06:09
JML1cdm : all the linux distros i am trying work on other PCS06:09
alka_trashhello U-L-nix-ers!06:09
JML1ive used them to install before06:09
cdm10whabo: if you've got nVidia or ATi, you'll need to install or re-enable the restricted drivers in System>Admin>Restricted Drivers Manager06:09
xivanariits telling me when i try to install virtualbox that it cannot download whatever06:09
xivanaricannot download all required files06:09
cdm10JML1: okay... can the computer read from it, if not boot from it?06:09
xivanariplease check your internet connection06:09
xivanaribut yet it is clearly working06:10
cdm10xivanari: hold on a sec06:10
helpyhelpertonxivanari: clearly06:10
cdm10xivanari: go to System>Admin>Software Sources06:10
whabocdm10 : okay hold on thank you.. ill try that06:10
JML1cdm : if i boot to windows and try to view the disk contents with windows explorer it tells me that the disk is incorrectly formatted06:10
helpyhelpertonwhabo: lol06:10
xivanariok there06:10
cdm10JML1: try burning it on a different PC...06:10
cdm10xivanari: hold on a sec06:10
JML1cdm : but if i take that same disk and put in my Desktop, it reads fine06:10
xivanariok holding06:10
JML1i used nero 706:11
JML1i will try burning a copy at work tomorrow06:11
helpyhelpertonDML1: Can you explore the disk??06:11
cdm10JML1: Sometimes, certain PCs have issues reading stuff burned with other specific PCs... just weirdnesses with the optical drive.06:11
cdm10helpyhelperton: no06:11
JML1I'll try burning at work...is a USB Key an option?06:11
helpyhelpertoncdm10: I mean from the other PC to check the file structure06:11
Tarkushi. anyone know what would cause me to get horizontal splitting in are where there is movement and contrast? window edges, videos, etc.. http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/8661/screenshotgu6.png06:11
JML1i have a 2GB key that will hold the ISO06:11
xivanarioh yknow what i think it was06:11
xivanarii was using synaptic to download hellanzb06:11
cdm10helpyhelperton: he said it boots on other PCs06:12
echosaJML1:  try burning the linux install cd from the computer on which you wish to install linux... that way you know the drive will read the disc properly since it burned it06:12
xivanarii got some errors06:12
cdm10xivanari: oh, yeah, those 2 things can't be going on at the same time...06:12
xivanariyea.06:12
alka_trashxivanari: you might want to check synaptics repositories that your pulling form. if you go to synaptic, setting repositories, check the  country that its using,  (mine says United States06:12
cdm10xivanari: while you're in Sources, make sure main, universe, restricted, and multiverse are all checked off06:12
JML1echosa : unfortunately, the laptop im trying to install doesnt have a burner (CD/DVD read only)06:12
xivanarithere we go working now06:12
cdm10alka_trash: no, he might not... we figured out the issue.06:12
cdm10xivanari: anyway, once it's installed, there's some other stuff you'll have to do06:12
alka_trashcdm10: cool06:13
echosaJML1: ah, well never mind then :-P06:13
xivanaricdm10:  i didnt see a place for that in ources.06:13
xivanariand virtualbox isnt installing06:13
JML1cdm10, helpy, echosa : i will try burning a copy at work tomorrow, and i'll bring my laptop with me,  if that doesnt work i'll be back tomorrow night !!!06:13
JML1THANKS for the help06:13
cdm10xivanari: look in the parentheses at the end of each line in the first tab06:13

helpyhelpertonJML1: Goodluck!06:13
JML1... 1 other thing?06:13

cdm10xivanari: in Sources, go to the Ubuntu Software tab and check off the first four checkboxes06:13
adastra23USB stopped working. any help would be appreciated. output of lspci -vvnn http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/44587/06:14
xivanarithey are all checked off06:14
cdm10JML1: yes, but you need to set up a netboot server06:14
xivanariwere before06:14
Mustang50187what does some one think of vmware06:14
cdm10Mustang50187: I use VirtualBox06:14
JML1CDM : thanks, i will research that, im sure i can find instructions on google or digg06:14
echosaMustang50187: vmware is ok, I prefer virtualbox06:14
helpyhelpertonMustang: I use it for winxp to boot ultimateubuntu .. had problems installing it on my linux box though06:14
ovenmitt85not sure if this is the right place, but, does anyone know anything about the gRIM plugin on Pidgin?06:14
Mustang50187vbox is better06:14
whaboHAHAH it worked THX ALOOTTTT06:14
xivanaristill giving me error could not install all dependencies when trying to install virtualbox06:14
cdm10xivanari: okay, first, make sure that all package-management software is completed its task and closed... that means update manager, synaptic, add/remove, sources, etc.06:14
helpyhelpertonwhabo: drivers??06:15
Mustang50187thanks guys or gals06:15
cdm10xivanari: then try it again...06:15
cdm10helpyhelperton: apparently... but he's gone06:15
xivanariokay06:15
helpyhelpertoncdm10: blah.. maybe I should go back to xchat or something so I can tell when folks leave06:15
xivanariok started from the beginning that time06:15
cdm10helpyhelperton: what are  you using?06:15
xivanariit would seem as though it is working this time06:15
helpyhelpertoncdm10: I don't want to tell you.. you'll laugh06:16
cdm10helpyhelperton: Pidgin/Gaim?06:16
echosahelpyhelperton: I'm using xchat-gnome06:16
helpyhelpertoncdm10: worse.. keep in mind Im in XP right now06:16
cdm10helpyhelperton: ah, chatzilla06:16
xivanariok virtualbox up and working06:16
helpyhelpertoncdm10: cheater06:16
echosahelpyhelperton: not using mIRC in windows?06:16
cdm10helpyhelperton: you can config that to display join/part messages i think...06:16
ovenmitt85Yeah, Pidgin is basically GAIM from my understanding.06:17
cdm10helpyhelperton: try right-clicking the tab06:17
helpyhelpertonovenmitt85: Yes06:17
cdm10ovenmitt85: that wasn't really what I was talking about, but okay...06:17
xivanariokay virtualbox is installed06:17
xivanarinow how do i run windows programs within it06:17
cdm10xivanari: sweet. Now go to System>Admin>Users and Groups06:17
cdm10xivanari: do you have a Windows disc?06:18
xivanarii dont think so06:18
xivanarii have a laptop windows disc i believe06:18
xivanaribut thats about the extent of it.06:18
xivanarias this is my laptop and not a desktop06:18
cdm10xivanari: dammit, I just assumed because you were talking about vbox when I came in here that you knew what it was for...06:18
cdm10xivanari: oh, well, any install disc should do the trick06:18
Mustang50187i do06:18
xivanarialright06:18
xivanarii dont even know if i have that disc tho06:19
xivanarii will have to find it which wont be easyt06:19
echosacdm10: as long as its not a restore disc06:19
xivanariand it might have been left with most of my computer stuff back at my parents house when i moved out06:19
cdm10echosa: that might work too, you never know...06:19
Jordan_U_Does the Ubuntu DVD image contain all of main and restricted?06:19
echosacdm10: might yeah.. it'd be interesting to know06:19
Mustang50187can't use oem software06:19
cdm10xivanari: what VBox does is allow you to install any OS in a virtual computer... so you'll end up with a window with a windows desktop in it that you can use to run windows apps.06:19
xivanariah i see.06:19
xivanarivery cool.06:19
helpyhelpertonxivanari: Yah that sucks.. I have to break the habit of assuming everyone has a windows install cd sitting next to them...06:19
xivanaribut unfortunately pretty useless to me.06:20
xivanariyea...06:20
=== daniel0815 is now known as dapper-daniel
cdm10xivanari: the new version actually makes the windows a little more integrated... but you still need the OS disc to install. And you need a decent amount of RAM... enough for both OS's combined.06:20
cdm10xivanari: Wine will do what you want, but unlike VirtualBox, it won't work with every Windows app.06:20
xivanariwell i have 1gb of ram on this machine06:20
Jordan_U_Does the Ubuntu DVD image contain all of main and restricted?06:20
xivanariwell but wine crashes my computer06:20
cdm10xivanari: Wine's a lot easier to install... it's in Add/Remove.06:20
cdm10xivanari: oh...06:20
xivanariforces me to log out very suddenly06:20
xivanarithen screws up all the text on the login screen06:20
xivanarimakes it huuuuuge06:20
xivanarilike size 7206:20
Jordan_U_xivanari, Are you running a 3D program in wine?06:21
xivanarii am not running anything in wine06:21
xivanarii cannot open wine06:21
xivanarii tried to uninstall wine it crashed my computer06:21
xivanarii tried to configure wine it crashed my computer06:21
xivanarii tried to run wine it crashed my computer :P06:21
Jordan_U_xivanari, How did you try to uninstall it?06:21
xivanariby going apps>wine>uninstall06:21
cdm10xivanari: that doesn't install wine, it just lets you uninstall windows apps from wine...06:22
echosaxivanari: that's how you uninstall windows apps that you've installed with wine06:22
Jordan_U_xivanari, That doesn't uninstall wine, it uninstalls windows applications you have installed in wine06:22
cdm10echosa: HA, I BEAT YOU!06:22
cdm10echosa: sorry 'bout that :)06:22
adastra23USB stopped working. any help would be appreciated. output of lspci -vvnn http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/44587/ what else should I look at?06:22
xivanarialrighty then06:22
helpyhelpertonJordan_U: You are a fountain of enlightenment, is there an easy way to run a windows executable (outside of wine) so that xivanari can extract a backedup .nbz on an external drive06:22
echosacdm10: darn.. I"m getting tired lol06:22
xivanarithank you helpyhelperton06:22
cdm10xivanari: in Ubuntu, all uninstallation/installation is done using APT... which means through Add/Remove, synaptic, or terminal commands like apt-get and aptitude.06:22
xivanarialright gotcha.06:22
helpyhelpertoncdm10: haha06:22
Jordan_U_xivanari, .nzb, that's a usenet binary, correct?06:23
echosaxivanari: when you ran wine, what did you run? you have to give wine a windows .exe file to run06:23
xivanarii dont know Jordan_U_06:23
xivanariechosa:  how do i give it an exe file to run?06:23
Jordan_U_xivanari, I think it is, in which case there are Linux apps that can extract it06:24
cdm10xivanari: right-click the EXE, click Open With, go to custom, type wine06:24
echosawell, lets say you have a windows game to install... put the disc in, browse to it in a command line and type wine install.exe or wine setup.exe or whatever the exe is named06:24
xivanarioWAOIT06:24
xivanarifull stop06:24
xivanariwine is working06:24
helpyhelpertonJordan_U: the question is will the APP that he used have a proprietary format that might exclude normal extraction06:24
xivanariw00t!06:24
xivanari:D06:24
cdm10xivanari: lol06:24
echosaxivanari: or you can just double click the .exe file in the file manager06:24
cdm10xivanari: don't get your hopes up, though... a lot of Windows apps don't work in it.06:24
Jordan_U_xivanari, sudo apt-get install nzb06:24
echosaxivanari: helps to know how a program works :) lol06:25
echosaxivanari: cdm10 is correct06:25
cdm10echosa: unfortunately, that doesn't work by default until you do the Open With thing... or at least it didn't on my computer.06:25
xivanariit would be appearing to be working at the moment06:25
cdm10be appearing to be working?06:25
xivanarihowever it has stopped working as i typed that.06:25
cdm10ouch06:25
Jordan_U_xivanari, You might as well use a native solution06:25
echosacdm10: works fine on mine, by default and everything06:25
xivanariso the appearances lied.06:25
xivanarilol06:25
cdm10echosa: ugh, weird...06:25
xivanarioh wait its working06:25
cdm10the suspense is killing me06:25
helpyhelpertonxivanari: try Jordan_U's solution06:25
helpyhelpertonOh geez.. Im gonna squirt!!06:26
echosaxivanari: what are you running in wine?06:26
cdm10helpyhelperton: yeah... but i want to see him get Wine working!06:26
cdm10lol06:26
livefoniksWine needs to ferment a bit longer, by my reckoning.06:26
cdm10livefoniks: quite true :)06:26
xivanariand it does appear to be working06:26
xivanaribut it has 60gb worth of data to restore06:26
xivanariand uncompress06:26
Jordan_U_I'll wait untill wine hits 1.0 ;)06:26
xivanariso it will take a bit.06:26
helpyhelpertoncdm10: never used wine myself.. i hear too many things don't work.. I think a virtual envirnoment makes more sense anyhow06:26
xivanariheh yea sounds about right livefoniks06:26
cdm10helpyhelperton: it certainly does, except for games06:27
xivanariagreed helpyhelperton if your computer can manage the full environment why not.06:27
cdm10helpyhelperton: and VirtualBox's new Seamless Mode makes it really awesome06:27
Jordan_U_xivanari, I would still trust nzb ( a native linux application ) more than an app running in wine06:27
rbrevoortcan someone help me to get totem working? for some reason i can't play any dvd?06:27
chrono13gksu gconf-editor I accidentally set a key as mandatory instead of default. Now I can not change that key. Unsetting the key makes the edit window editable, but when I click OK, it says "Can't overwrite existing read-only value". How do I fix this?06:27
xivanarihmm okay Jordan_U_ is the name of it actually just nzb?06:27
cdm10xivanari: wait, how were you trying to install hellanzb?06:27
helpyhelpertoncdm10: Yeah I remember hearing talk about special virtualized packages that were going to offer options to use the 3d hardware06:27
Jordan_U_xivanari, Yes, "sudo apt-get install nzb"06:27
cdm10xivanari: because it's right here, in the repositories...06:27
xivanarii was trying to install it through synaptic06:27
cdm10helpyhelperton: I think Parallels on the Mac has some sort of 3d support...06:28
Jordan_U_rbrevoort, totem-gstreamer can't play DVD's06:28
cdm10xivanari: and what was happening?06:28
xivanariJordan_U_:  is that a cli command?06:28
cdm10Jordan_U_: Certainly can, with libdvdcss06:28
Jordan_U_xivanari, Yes06:28
xivanaricdm10: i forgt, it gave me some error a the end of its installation06:28
cdm10xivanari: you can of course do it through Synaptic... but the command is easier06:28
xivanaribut im being bombarded by errors and frankly getting tired of them lol06:28
helpyhelpertoncdm10: That would be balls if they could do it in VM or Virtualbox06:28
rbrevoortwhere do find libdvdcss?06:28
cdm10rbrevoort: hold on06:28
rbrevoortok06:28
Jordan_U_cdm10, It can't display the menu's, might as well use VLC mplayer etc06:29

crazy6for some reason dhclient doesn't run on startup?06:51
yokomo_alka_trash: and what should this bash script look like?06:51
tomdyokomo_ i guess just don't use the network manager, just use iwconfig instead06:52
alka_trashyokomo_: I taking a look, just a sec06:52
eboyjrIn a terminal, what does '(' do?06:52
tomdyokomo_ do iwconfig to get the address after Access Point:06:52
eboyjrIn a terminal, what does '(' do? ( without quotes )06:52
tomdyokomo_ then from there on whenever you iwconfig do ap xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx and it will pick the right one06:52
yokomo_no, it doesn't do that06:53
rbrevoortechosa: totem want a plugin.06:53
mindframe-i just got the update notice for a few packages and the update manager says they cant be authenticated.  why is this?06:53

bnqnqanyone knows about WiFi not starting on 7.10?07:31
sn00zerwhat does that bad device message mean? i see that in my terminal alot07:31
powerservei want to run crossloop on it sir07:31
Myrttibnqnq: please be more precise, what wifi chip do you have?07:31
Myrttibnqnq: there's plenty of experience of working wifi, so you'll have to detail a bit07:32
echosawhat is crossloop? a windows program? never heard of it?07:32
powerservei tried to install it but along the way i interrupted the setting up procedure and met an error07:32
sn00zerpowerserve: did you get it from the repos?07:32
[chr0n0s]hello, in ubuntu, if i leave laptop idle for 5 minutes, the gamma changes from 1 to 0.1, any idea how ? as of now i am using the xgamma command everytime that happens07:32
sn00zeri'm also trying to get it running but i think my install is messed up07:32
powerserveyes sir i got it from add remove07:32
bnqnqWiFi chip doesn't matter.  It works only when after /etc/init.d/network restart07:32
[chr0n0s]wireless networking is a mess in ubuntu07:33
Myrttibnqnq: so you've tested it with several wifi cards?07:33
echosapowerserve: sn00zer: I just isntalled it from symantic using instructions I found either on google or in the virtualbox manual pdf found on their website07:33
tomdchr0n0s: funny you should mention that07:33
bnqnqMyrtti: no, but as it works after restart, it is not related to the card itself07:34
sn00zerits not in my repos....07:34
tomdchr0n0s: someone here was having problems staying on the right ap because network manager doesn't give you the option of specifying an ap, or... does it? anyone?07:34
sn00zeri installed it from a tarball from their website07:34
powerservewould it be okay if i show you the error i encountered sirs? i tried for several times to reinstall and delete the vbox settings that i used but to no avail07:34

Nergarthnx07:40
_boysdontcryNergar : thre are many to choose actually07:40
Scareyrbrevoort, try removing it first then.. (completely)07:40
rbrevoorti though i just use add/remove to install it07:41
Scareyrbrevoort, try using a console and do this:07:41
powerserveechosa: sir its like this when i open virtual box since i already configured a new vbox when i click start i always see that error and i couldn't get in to the program07:41
rbrevoortscarey i haven't download anything07:41
[chr0n0s]In ubuntu, if i leave laptop idle for 5 minutes, the gamma changes from 1 to 0.1, any idea how ? as of now i am using the xgamma command everytime that happens07:42
sn00zerpowerserve, during the install did you ever modprobe vboxdrv?07:42
Scareyrbrevoort, ok, try to open a console07:42
Scareyrbrevoort, write: sudo apt-get update07:42
rbrevoorthold on07:42
Scareyrbrevoort, then sudo apt-get install p7zip-full07:42
Xenocide21can someone answer me this at least? When running on a macintosh system, will i have to boot with the CD every time i wish to use ubuntu? I notice it boots the whole OS in a ram disk (i have a gig of ram so i dont really complain about that)07:42

sn00zerno you don't xenocide07:43
rbrevoortscarey: now what?07:43
Scareyrbrevoort, then sudo apt-get install p7zip-full07:43
echosapowerserve: do this: completely close virtualbox, from a terminal type 'sudo usermod -G <your linux user name >' without the quotes, replacing <your linux user name > with whatever your linux user name is, so for instance, I would type 'sudo usermod -G vboxusers echosa'07:43
