veepelo thanx00:04
DrUnKnMuNkYvee: what do you need help with?00:04

Peloxiven, we need specific questions00:05
Darius08xYup.00:05
veexiven whats the problem?00:06
xivenIt won't get internet00:06
xTheGoat121xpelo... nope.  The only things that would be running are python apps... screenlets, to be exact... and I've already narrowed it down, not then.00:06
DrUnKnMuNkYvee: did you install it using apt-get or some other package manager or manually?00:06
xivenIt gets an IP, but no internet00:06
xivenWindows works fine..00:06
veeDrUnKnMuNkY  sudo get-apt install phpmyadmin00:06

veexiven open up System>Network00:07
achtungbtw00:07
Darius08xI'm actually on ubuntu right now (I have NO idea what version put it on my laptop a little while ago) Does it come with any .iso burning stuffs. Or would it probably just be easier for me to but it on a usb drive and burn it from windows?00:07
DrUnKnMuNkYvee: i'm assuming you have apache installed on the machine. open a terminal and type cd /var/www. do you see anything called phpmyadmin?00:07

achtunghas the problem with ubuntu killing laptop hard drives been fixed?00:07
veeDrUnKnMuNkY yes i do... ap2... lemme try that00:07

thorDarius08x you running gnome?00:07
jacob__can somebody tell me how to log out from superusers powers, (instead of waiting 15 mins)?00:07
achtungheheheh00:07
achtungi know00:07
xTheGoat121xPelo, that's the thing.  there's nothing listed in top that's eating CPU cycles... it just seems to be unrelated to ANYthing00:07
PeloDarius08x, yes you can right clic k and burn to cd,  but I prefer gnomebaker myself for that ,  just sudo apt-get install gnomebaker00:08
unikonwhy in the world is firefox slow in Ubuntu 7.10?00:08
PeloxTheGoat121x, try with sudo top , might bring up more processes00:08
veeDrUnKnMuNkY no such dir.00:08
veeDrUnKnMuNkY under /etc i see it00:09
xivenI have opened System.NEtwork like 9 times00:09
DrUnKnMuNkYvee: what is your root apache directory?00:09
Pelounikon, might have to do with how many plugins you have00:09
rob_pjacob__: sudo -K whould do it.00:09
xivenBut, what do you want me to do?00:09
tickydoes anybody konw why ubuntu is shutting down (or hibernating or suspending, i'm not sure which of the three is doing), all of a suden? i thought i was pressing some key combinations but i realized it was doing it by itself too..00:09
xTheGoat121xPelo, I don't mean to be difficult, but I've tried that.00:09

veeDrUnKnMuNkY /var/www/apache2-default00:09
kitcheticky: an overheat maybe?00:09
veeDrUnKnMuNkY thats it right?00:09
tickykitche: i don 't think so. the funs are not loud.00:10
PeloxTheGoat121x, could it be the display that is wrong ? is  your system behaving as if is it using 100% cpu &00:10
billydoes anybody know why when i try to download the dota map, it doesnt show up when i play with it using wine?00:10
Pelo?00:10
veexiven you have to find where the network system window is to see if the settings are correct00:10
tickyis there a log where i can check the signals / messages?00:10
DrUnKnMuNkYvee: just /var/www is the root of the webserver folder. type this command while in /var/www: sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin phpmyadmin00:10
tickykitche: fans not funs00:10
kitcheticky: that doesn't mean anything could still be an overheating problem00:11
xTheGoat121xPelo, now THAT sounds like a very good possibility!  In top and sudo top, nothing shows as chewing up 100% CPU, but in gnome-system-monitor, it shows 100% CPU usage w/o any apps eating that much CPU00:11
tickykitche: how can i check that then?00:11
billyanybody here play wc3 dota on wine?00:11
jacob__rob_p: that didn't work00:12
xivenMaybe you guys would know about a common problem with Clearwire internet and Ubuntu00:12
kitcheticky: just have to watch your sensors00:12
tickybut i don'tthink it is that. it is not powering down like if there was a black out. it is shutting down like if i have chosen it00:12
PeloxTheGoat121x, in system-monitor when you turn it on , the sys-mon itself does take quite a bit of cpu to get running , but it tends to go up and down for a while00:12
rob_pjacob__: Maybe I misunderstood what you were trying to do.00:12
kitcheticky: yes some systems will powerdown like a shutdown00:12
jacob__rob_p: i want to graphically log out from superuser powers00:12
tickykitche: you mean phisically, or in some program in the computer00:12
xTheGoat121xPelo, alas, it's not just with system mon.00:12
achtung*reading*00:12
kitcheticky: well program lm-sensors00:13
rob_pjacob__: You mean you logged in graphically as root?00:13
PeloxTheGoat121x,  there is a pannel app you can use to monitor your cpu and mem and a bunch of otehr suff that you can basicaly ahve on all the time, that might give you a better idea00:13
=== miguillo is now known as miguillo_a
tickykitche: installing it right now00:13
PeloxTheGoat121x, sensors-applet  might need to apt-get it first00:13
veeDrUnKnMuNkY ok i did that... what did that do... and i see a bunch files listed00:13
xTheGoat121xPelo, all right.  I'll look into it00:14
tickyany other idea?00:14
Jupp2rob_p, I think he means that when you type in your password (e.g. synaptic) the system will still have you as root for a couple of minutes00:14
* Pelo needs some junk to much on , later folks 00:14
DrUnKnMuNkYvee: that creates a symbolic link in your apache directory to the phpmyadmin directory. try going to http://localhost/phpmyadmin now00:14
rob_pJupp2: Yeah.  That's what I thought initially too.  If that's the case, "sudo -K" should have forced an expire of sudo privs.00:15
billyanybody here have wc3 dota working?00:15

xTheGoat121xugh00:15
kitcheasdsadasd: check wine appdb or cedega's if you want to pay a few bucks to get a good working system sicne their cvs doesn't run00:15
veeDrUnKnMuNkY did i install it wrong?00:15
billyi cant get any downloaded maps on wc3 to work00:16
=== asdsadasd is now known as [n00b]Shadow
kitchebilly: then you most likely have them in the wrong spot but that's more of a wc3 problem then a ubuntu one00:16
billywell i duno where to put them to get them to work with wine00:16
billyso im just wondering if anybody has them working in here00:17
Jack_Sparrowbilly: try asking in #winehq00:17
jacob__rob_p: do you know how to do that?00:17
billyim banned :(00:17
rob_pjacob__: If you are logged in as the normal user, you don't have super user access without using sudo (or gksu, gksudo, etc.) before whatever you want to run with super user privs.00:17
Jack_Sparrowbilly: Somehow, I am not surprised00:17
eyemeanhi there, if i want to delete a protected folder how do i do in command pls?00:17
kitchebilly: in the wc3 folder under ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ or whereverer wc3 is installed to00:17
tickykitche: i cannot make it run, i have run sensors-detect and i still get "Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need. Try sensors-detect to find out which these are." when i run `sensors`00:17
billyi have the map placed into the maps folder, but it doesnt show up when i play00:17
Jack_Sparroweyemean: use sudo for cli or gksudo for gui apps00:17
DrUnKnMuNkYvee: i'm not sure. i just installed it using apt-get and it worked fine out of the box. try completely removing it and installing it again. sudo apt-get purge phpmyadmin and sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin00:18
dngr7.10 install, hp dv600 with nvidia card, the machine just hangs on a black screen, probably X, what could one do to get it running?00:18
jacob__rob_p: i understand that, but how can i log out after i type (gksu, sudo, etc)00:18
billyhow do i get unbanned from winehq?00:18
DrUnKnMuNkYvee: you may also want to reinstall apache2 in a similar manner00:19
jacob__rob_p: grant persmission as a normal user after granting superuser powers00:19
Jack_Sparrowbilly: depends on what you did.. but that is all offtopic for this room00:19
billykk00:19
veeDrUnKnMuNkY i am running 7.10 server edition and installed LAMP i the beginning of the install00:19
tickywhere can i get the messages for my system to find out why it shut down for the last time?00:19
veeDrUnKnMuNkY then today i used apt-get to put phpmyadmin on.... was it on already an i double installed?00:19
xTheGoat121xBRB00:20
eyemeanjack_sparrow, sorry but im new to linux, can u pls give example if i want to delete , say /opt/hvirtual00:20
Jack_Sparrowyou would use sduo for root priv  then the rm command to remove the item00:20
rob_pjacob__: If you used sudo, then you can force an expire of the session by issuing, "sudo -k" at the command prompt.00:20

friendlyswhat is a must have security software for linux? in your opinion?  tripwire?00:23
jacobjacob__: that is a convenience feature. it will remember your sudo password/session for 15 minutes and will automatically expire. All other commands and applications you use however will still run as a normal user.00:23
DrUnKnMuNkYvee: go to /etc/apache2/sites-enabled00:23

veekelsin  i tired accessing it localhost/phpmyadmin and that didnt work00:38
kelsinbilly: is it a map made for a different version of warIII then you're running? and did you try dropping it in the "downloads" folder underneath maps? (I don't know if that mattered)00:38

veekelsin thiswas my ori. problem00:38

tanathi just had a wierd untitled, empty window pop up on my screen. how can i figure out what it s?00:41
Darius08xPelo:  okey00:41
PeloDarius08x, boot back xp run a scandisk and then run defrag twice at least,  then try the gparted cd again00:41
tanathwhen i focus it, it shows whatever is behind it00:41
tanather, what was behind it at the time, actually00:41
Darius08xI've already done chkdsk /f and defraged a BUNCH of times.00:41
kelsinvee: did you restart apache? and choose the right apache version when you installed phpmyadmin?00:41
PeloDarius08x, ok , still in gparted ?00:42
Darius08xI was getting some cluster error thing and that got fixed. But now it won't resize.00:42
Darius08xYes. I am.00:42
kelsinvee: (restarting apache shouldn't be a problem, but it might have screwed up somehow)00:42
veekelsin no, and I choose apache 2... as i think thats the version that comes with u.server 7.1000:42
PeloDarius08x, refresh the gparted view,  I know that in 7.04 it would occasionnaly tell you there was an error but it would still do the job00:42
kelsinvee: you have the myphp conf file in /etc/apache2/conf.d correct?00:42
veekelsin lemme check00:43
Darius08x... Now my mouse isn't working00:43
kelsinvee: and you don't have any other websites that overight the alias? you can try disabling all sites in the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled folder00:43
PeloDarius08x,  reboot the cd00:43
Darius08xPelo:  I am.00:43
kelsinbilly: don't know what to tell you :-( works for me just fine, try putting it into the downloads folder inside maps just in case that matters00:43
PeloDarius08x, the only other thing I can suggest,  would be to backup your xp data,  whipe the hdd make two partition install xp on one and then install ubu on the other00:44
veekelsin i see charset in that directory00:44
billykelsin: when i make the downloads folder, it doesnt even show up00:44
veekelsin no other sites00:44
Darius08xbleh. So just reformat completly. And before installing either go ahead and resize it?00:44
narothepharohpelo: how do I run a terminal as root?00:44
kelsinvee: did you just hit enter over apache2 when installing phpmyadmin or did you hit space so the * appeared next to apache2 then selected00:44
Jack_Sparrow!sudo00:45
ubotusudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for all information.00:45
kelsinvee: if you don't know then run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin" to do it again00:45
Pelonarothepharoh,  you donT run terminal as root you run commands with sudo00:45
kelsinbilly: try making "Downloads"00:45
veei had it highlighted red, then hit enter00:45
billykelsin: ok00:45
veekelsin look above00:45
PeloDarius08x, that was a last ditch way to do it , if you can't manage to resize00:45
kelsinbilly: if that doesn't work go and join a b.net game to make war make the folder then place your map in it00:45
Pelo!root > narothepharoh check for a private message windows with instructions from ubotu00:46
kelsinvee: make sure to hit space to make the * appear, run that dpkg-reconfigure command and do it again00:46
veekelsin ok00:46
billykelsin: kk i got it to work, thanks a lot00:46
fenrishi00:46
kelsinbilly: was it "Downloads"?00:46
Pelohello fenris00:46
billykelsin: no it was that i copied the folder with the game, and i put it else where, and i thought the maps were in there, but then it was in the original folder00:47

PeloDarius08x, well partition before hand make one fat32 and one ext3 , makethe fat32 first you can tell windows to instlal and reforma it to ntfs00:53
Darius08xok00:53
kelsinvee: from inside phpmyadmin you can, or using the mysql command line tools, it wouldn't have changed unless you changed it, if I'm even correct about the default, I don't know if I am00:53

AnimortisWhen done downloading flash from Synaptic, the console view displays the following message: md5sum mismatch install flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz / The Flash plugin is NOT installed.01:02

Pelocircaender, maybe you should try with the alternate install cd it is less picky about hardware when it installs01:15
kitofhawaiispeedhunt3r: also, confirm in bios that the onboard is off and deprived an IRQ01:15
speedhunt3rkitofhawaii: yeah i do have a spare, suppose the display goes on to that monitor, then what do i do?01:15
Animortiskitofhawaii, md5sum mismatch install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz / The Flash plugin is NOT installed.01:15
TeslaDaveThe program doesn't start fully because when it starts  it tries to update and write files i believe, and thus since SU doesn't really exist in ubuntu, it can't update and thus can't start, is their a place where i can install it so that i don't have to worry about sudo or su01:15
netsrotPelo: great thanks, now it's only my cdrom drive making noices, I hope that cdemu will release a stable version soon but development seems dead.01:16
speedhunt3rkitofhawaii: i don't have a choice to turn it off, i can set one primary so i set my primary to pci-ex01:16

marlhi folks, im running a VS with Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS  and am hitting a prob trying to setup an iptables rule, could some kind sole have a quick look at http://www.pastebin.ca/807821 and see if they can see what im doing wrong?01:16
circaenderThats how i got it to install, and it all installed fine and detected all my hardware and everything..and it told me to take the cd out and reboot..so i did, and it just loaded up three bars and stalled.01:16
kitofhawaiispeedhunt3r: you should be able to rob it of its IRQ01:16
ztomicbtw, is the wireless tool to graphically select a specific AP?01:16

speedhunt3rkitofhawaii: i'll look for it, i recently updated bios, brb....01:16
Pelonetsrot, my dvd drive was making some noise recently as well , I'm not sure it is ubuntu related but I was thinking it might have been , seemesd to have stopped now01:16

micocould anyone point me direction of links to learn how to install an LDAP server and clients in gutsy ?01:17
dewdudeok, so, my laptop hard drive started making funky zipping/whining noises and after about 5 minutes, 100% died..like..the bios doesn't even detect it..so i put my 80gb drive in the thing that had a previous ubuntu install from an HP Omnibook...now i know i should idealy reinstall ubuntu...but..there's some stuff in /home i really don't wanna get rid of...any options for me?01:17
=== DarthShr1ne is now known as DarthShrine
Pelomico, assuming an ldap client is just a bunch of apps , you just need to know what those apps are and install them from synaptic01:18
kefurd06dewdude: if the drive isn't even picked up in bios.. u may be SOL01:18

ztomicdewdude: usb pendrive. In the future create a separate home partition.01:19
kefurd06dewdude: i've heard of companies that will take your dead hard drive and get as much data for u from it as they can01:19
Animortiskitofhawaii, A repo difficulty? I'll take a look or wait for it to fix.01:19
dewdudeno no01:19
dewdudeyou totally misheard me.01:19
Pelodewdude,  if hyou have some free hdd space,  resize to make a new partiton from that free space and copy your /home folder to it01:19
gorathPelo: ok i belive i have the source now for xwinwrap how do i compile01:19
dewdudethe drive that died..had nothing on it01:19
dewdudei don't care01:19
kefurd06oh01:19
kefurd06sry01:19
dewdudeit had suffered a problem with data loss before and i was a fool for trying to use it01:19
marldewdude: one tip u could try to get allow getting some data back from the drive if u need it, is place the drive oin an external drive caddy, and put it in the freezer in a well sealed bag01:19
dewdudebut i wasn't sure if that was the issue with the thing.01:19
dewdudenah01:20
circaenderis there a way i can find out if its my hard ware? i checked my motherboard and it said it was compatible..im not sure what else it could be..i have a Nvidia g-card01:20
dewdudethe dead drive is in the trash already01:20
Pelogorath, first you need to install the compiling software,    open a terminal and type sudo apt-get install build-essential01:20
kitofhawaiiAnimortis: the other thing you can try is "sudo apt-get --purge remove flashplugin-nonfree" and then try the aptget again01:20
kefurd06now what was ur question?01:20
ztomicdewdude: I like Pelo's idea.01:20
whaboHow can i create a shortcut for a new subfolder under applications??? its for WINE and the programs in it .. anyone ??? PLZ HELPP .. THANK YOU01:20
dewdudei thought about trying that.01:20
kefurd06sry whabo, wish i knew01:20
marlleaving it in the external caddy/bad, allows you to actually run and access it while it is still in the freezer! can allow short term access to apparently totaly dead drives!01:20
dewdudei know that01:20
gorathpelo: ok01:20
Pelocircaender, ifyou hve anything nvidia on your comp , use the alternate install cd , not the live cd , youcan get it from the ubuntu.com site, fromteh dl section , just check the box bellow the download button01:20
whabokefurd06: its ok thx :)01:20
Pelogorath,  done ?01:21
gorathpelo:yep01:21
dewdudethe point is...i don't care about the dead drive..i'm jsut wondering should i try to reconfigure the ubuntu install on the "new" drive or reformat after getting the /home stuff backuped somehow01:21
Pelogorath, ok  is the xwin... source package on your desktop ?01:21
Animortiskitofhawaii, Didn't work. I'll look for that workaround.01:21
Bored1edAnyone have any download recommendations? Im quite bored.01:21
dewdudeit's booted up in console since X wouldn't start..and my wifi is working......i jsut didn't know if there was some easy way to do it01:21
DILstick the drive in the freezer and try it again -01:21
kelsinmarl: looks to me like the REDIRCT table doesn't exist, I could be very wrong about that01:21
circaenderThats how i got it to install, and it all installed fine and detected all my hardware and everything..and it told me to take the cd out and reboot..so i did, and it just loaded up three bars and stalled.01:21
TeslaDaveI have a question regarding installing a program that needs root su access everytime it starts, is there a place where it can be installed to get around the sudo / su differences ubuntu has?01:22
Pelogorath,  join me in #Pelo please , this place is a bit to noisy for this tutorial01:22
kitofhawaiiAnimortis: it involves getting it directly from adobe (works good...can confirm that's a viable option, though it won't be managed, so keep an eye on the repo's)01:22
ztomicdewdude: not really important. you can reconfigure X and other things. But then again a new install is pretty quick.01:22
kelsinmarl: n/m it's a builtin, shows what I know :)01:23
Animortiskitofhawaii, I'll take a look. Considering the security vulnerabilities involved, I will probably just use Gnash for a few weeks...01:23
Peloafk brb01:23
kitofhawaiiAnimortis: also, are you using 64-bit ubunti?01:23

DEAthKAgot it?01:33
dewdudefloppy is out of the question...a floppy can't hold that much01:33
wols_Bored1ed: for a harddisk maker 300GB is 300x1000x1000x1000 bytes. for linux it is 300x1024x1024x102401:33

kitofhawaiislic1: burning os disks, i generally recommend going half or slower the rated speed of your cd burner01:35

kitcheakorn: easy use a package managment software to remove it unless you used their .run file01:38
wols_CaptainMorgan: auth.log perhaps01:38
juano__akorn: you have to run /opt/..../cxoffice/cxremove01:38
juano__akorn: or something like that... with sudo01:38
akornwols_ i used the .deb file to install it, any idea? i can't find any folders and if i use locate crossover i find nothing, bu tit's there becuase i used it to install a program!01:38
heguruCaptainMorgan: you can use last command for last logged in users01:38
kelsinCaptainMorgan: the last command will help "last"01:38

cvdany firefox pluging to download complete webpages, so  acan navigate offline?02:39
gbwhello, is there any other package which looks like cairo-dock?02:39
kelsincvd: don't know about a firefox plugin, but wget can recursively download full sites02:40
YOok so I will ask again ubotu :) I am looking to install a proxy on my gutsy box to allow me to connect to irc from blocked locations02:41
kitcheYO: irssi02:41
TSWoodVNeed advise as to how to make usbserial work with pl2303 and ftdi_sio modules simultaneously under 2.6.15 kernel.02:41
wolsYO: use irssi02:41
YOhmm ok i will look into that ... thanks02:41
IndyGunFreakgbw: you can install gdesklets02:41
kitcheYO: it's a client but has a proxy feature02:41
kelsinYO: depending on the situation you can also just use a ssh forward02:41
pgkazol: it may be that your hardware is not supported.  Have you searched the web for your computer model and "stand by" or "hybernate"?02:41
MikeyMikekelsin,  ok i had the gparted live usb and i tried to resize my 332 gig windows partition using it. I was using half of that 332 gigs for windows and the other half was empty. I wanted to resize it to have half unallocated... so 160 gigs or so for windows (maybe 3 gigs free just in case i have to run windows again) and the other i was going to reinstall another version of windows on with a new motherboard and cpu and video card that i got. when i resized th02:41
MikeyMikee partition to half roughly it gave me this error, ERROR: Extended record needed (1048 > 1024), not yet supported! Please try to free less space.02:41
gbwIndyGunFreak, is there any particular reason i should not install cairo-dock?02:42
IndyGunFreakgbw: you cna do whatever you like you asked for an alternative to cairo-dock02:42
kazolpg: Not yet, I forgot about it.02:42
scguy318MikeyMike: silly suggestion, but have you defragged? :P02:42
pgHow can I make my console font smaller?02:42
MikeyMikescguy318,  i'm pretty sure it's not fragmented but i can check again02:42
gbwIndyGunFreak, actually i am asking which package is more stable and friendly to use02:42
kelsinMikeyMike: do you need to resize to half? Maybe resizing to like 50 gigs free if enough to move your files, then do your deletion / growing thing?02:42
MikeyMikekelsin,  well... 50 gigs isnt enough.... how can i find out the limit?02:43
IndyGunFreakgbw: well that wasn't the question you posed that i responded to, regardless, gdesklets is generally stable for me, but thats all ic an tell you.02:43
MikeyMikescguy318,  i just analyzed my partition and it says i do not need to defrag02:43
kelsinMikeyMike: don't know, but it might not error on a smaller amount02:43
MikeyMikekelsin,  right02:43
kelsinMikeyMike: are you running vista? If so does the resize tool in vista not get the partition small enough?02:43
S_t_n_KHola02:44
MikeyMikekelsin,  windows xp02:44
MikeyMikeprofessional02:44
eyemeanhi does anyone kow how i can make thunar the default file manager on gutsy pls?02:44
MikeyMikekelsin,  you can resize the partition in vista? wow... i'm impressed lol02:44
MikeyMikebut no i'm using xp pro02:44
kelsinMikeyMike: well you can resize them completely stupidly, afaik it doesn't ever move data, but if you aren't technically using the end of the disk (by chance) it can shrink it02:44
MikeyMikekelsin,  right.... i'm using the front half of the 332 gig partition.... i was going to resize to give my current windows barely any free space. then install my new hardware and install into the new partition. copy stuff from the old partition... then erase the old stuff and have my full 332 gigs again :)02:45
BigDaddyI just double checked, I have switched between alsa and OSS and I am having a problem on audio transitions. Anyone knowledgeable with audio problems?02:46
lucieniu1hi guys, my soundcard loops system sounds endlessly. other sounds, like those generated by pidgin/media players/etc are ok though.02:46
scguy318BigDaddy: there is no OSS, it's just an ALSA compatibility layer02:46
abadtoothHow to I mount a windows hard drive that won't boot in the terminal?02:46
kelsinMikeyMike: I know you've said that three times now, I would honestly run out to best buy and buy a hard drive to copy the media on, safer, esp if you're having issues with the gparted cd02:46
MikeyMikekelsin,  lol i've considered it.....02:46
scguy318kelsin: not Best Buy :( :P02:46
BigDaddyscguy318: Oh, then should I have everything on ALSA or autodetect?02:46
wolsMikeyMike: unecessary. rename program files, documents and settings and \windows to something else. then reinstall windows02:46

kelsinrobrrr: "useradd" "man useradd" for more info02:47
MikeyMikewait.... wols won't the new install of windows write completely over.......02:47

denardoFun I'm back... I had had a second (PCMCIA) audio device connected, so I logged out, disconnected it, and logged in again, just in case that was the problem, but it didn't affect things. With Amarok at Autodetect, it still zooms silently through the playlist then gives the "device unavailable" error.02:49
MikeyMikewols,  i'm not exactly sure what to search for to find more info about this02:49
BigDaddyscguy318: could the fact that I have Amarok installed be causing the popping sounds? Maybe xine conflicting with gstreamer or something?02:50
kelsinrobrrr: I'm confused, if you've read the useradd man page you'd see that there isn't a --quiet flag02:50
abadtoothkelsin:  lemme try that02:50
scguy318BigDaddy: perhaps, but prob not02:50
kelsinrobrrr: I don't think useradd normally asks questions02:50

FunnyLookinHatmeoblast001, with the email notification, I'm not sure of a way to do that with evolution, sorry03:37
meoblast001ok03:37
Darius08xtntCry: ...Both? I could connect wireless and everything03:37
meoblast001any ideas for the WINE problem?03:37
robdigcvd: ah, * is in wrong column in your pastebin...compare to sample03:37
FunnyLookinHatmeoblast001, with the .EXE files, you can set the default when you right click a .EXE - Choose Open With - Open with Other Application ---  Just type in wine and check the box to make it default03:37
tntCryDarius08x, so you mean ubuntu havent detected your card ?03:38
Darius08xYeah03:38
TigranGDoes building a custom kernel actually make the system faster?03:39
cvdstill the same :-)03:39
cvd:-(03:39
meoblast001FunnyLookinHat: i dont have that option03:39
tntCryim the wrong person to help you with Darius08x , but if its an internet problem that means if your card works and your connected to your router and erverything but your internet isnt working it means you cant surf or log in msn ect.. that is a problem i can help you with.03:39
Darius08xtntCry:  Thats not my problem, it's just not detecting the card. ): But it did in the live cd which is odd03:39
robdigcvd: try deleting the first line and see if it will compile03:40
tntCryhmm03:40
tntCrydid you type dmesg?03:40

judgement07does anyone use DEVEDE?03:41
FunnyLookinHatmeoblast001, hmm..  I'm not totally sure.  You should google for it.  When I installed WINE, it automatically set the default for .EXE files to be WINE03:41
TigranGDoes building a custom kernel from source actually make the system faster?03:41
Darius08xtntCry:  Don't see it03:41
meoblast001will reinstalling Wine destroy all my previous settings and files?03:42
cvdmaybe there something wrong with the terminal?03:42
FunnyLookinHatmeoblast001, probably not,   you can make sure it doesn't by doing this in a console03:42
FunnyLookinHatmeoblast001, mv .wine .wine_backup03:42
cvdcuz sometimes i cant use the su at all03:42
FunnyLookinHatmeoblast001, then once you reinstall wine, do this:   mv .wine_backup .wine03:42
tntCrydirst of all Darius08x what is it a laptop? built in wireless with mobo or a PCMCI laptop card or a PCI slot for PC.03:43

tntCryyou know Darius08x if i was you i would remove it and put it in another slot03:44
Darius08xOk, thanks I guess i can try03:44
tntCryand try booting ubuntu again . this may cause of conflict that is 1 of the 80 reasons03:44
tntCrybut the other reasons is you must get some files and stuff but that is also recommended if my way didnt work .03:44
robdigcvd: i don't remember, does cobol statements start in column 7 or 8? been too long...either way, for the warning, try doing cobc -free hello.cob03:45

meoblast001ajeet: there you will be able to right click on the name of the process and click kill03:47
ajeetis there a key combo03:47
AlyxanderZhaozhou, yup Gnome mixed with E17 very nice very very nice03:47
meoblast001ajeet: you can make one03:47
ajeetlike in suse03:47
ZhaozhouAlyxander, e17 <303:47
Fydaajeet: No, but you could set one or create a launcher for 'xkill'03:47
meoblast001ajeet: first install the program xbindkeys03:47
ZhaozhouIm thinking of getting e17 on my box. e17 is really keyboard-friendly.03:48
robdigcvd: i don't remember, does cobol statements start in column 7 or 8? been too long...either way, for the warning, try doing cobc -free hello.cob03:48
robdigcvd: as far as the ld error, looks like you need to install ncurses03:48
meoblast001ajeet: Fyda's idea sounds a little easier03:48
AlyxanderZhaozhou, its hot the only reason i switched fro xubuntu with e installed was to see if they got it right with wireless and yeah they did03:49
cvdcannot find -lncurses03:49

Fydameoblast001: ajeet left :(03:50
meoblast001Fyda: he did?03:51
meoblast001im always late on that stuff03:51
robdigcvd: you need to install ncurses, the open cobol web site says 5.2 or later, not sure i see that, but try this...sudo apt-get install libncurses503:51
cvdi have intalled the libncurses5, libncursesw5,libncurses-base,ncurses-bin03:51
robdigcvd: did you install open cobol from the ubuntu repositories or from their website?03:52
cvdfrom synaptic03:52

jonesythis is an area where instead of having 15 different sound systems to choose from, it would be nice if linux had *one* that worked with the major desktops in some kind of seamless way.04:03

nickname6243Hey you know wha't sucks?06:38
jribshishio: no need to repeat.  gnash is open source and adobe is the official adobe one.  Trying to install adobe's at the moment will probably fail, so if you want that one, you should download the tar.gz from adobe and install it manually to ~/.mozilla/plugins/06:39
jribssam: ok, use ntfs-config then06:39

gvsa124jrib: the mozilla plugin06:39
ssamjrib: one more thing.......do you know how to compile a code?06:40
gvsa124jrib: do i have to uninstall the adobe i got from the plugin finder?06:40
jribshishio: I just said it will probably not work at the moment because adobe has a new version and the package has not been updated.  But you can try of course.  I recommend installing manually to ~/.mozilla/plugins/ until the package is updated.06:40
shishiojrib: okey06:41
jribgvsa124: doesn't matter, but if you leave it installed, you will be notified of the updated package when it arrives06:41

jribssam: I would recommend opening it in a text editor and reading it first to make sure it is safe.  You can execute it by making it executable first (chmod +x FILENAME.sh) and then executing it (./FILENAME.sh).  Or, just have the shell read it (sh FILENAME.sh).  You need to be in the directory where FILENAME.sh is located06:45

syndr0would having an olde computer make a difference?06:52
syndr0i mean mine can run flash well it did before06:52
rabisubzero800: then you install these three package seperately, "sudo dpkg -i package", ignore dependency problem for a while.06:52
syndr0but now on firefox it cause it to freeze ubuntu06:52
rabisubzero800: then finally you give a command "sudo apt-get -f install".06:52
syndr0and on and konqueror loads flash but it doesnt play correctly06:52
rabisubzero800: it will install these three package and manage dependency.06:53

GOdFAThe1ketrox: it says its not installed07:40
pgshishio: install the wine package07:40

rabipg: flashplugin-nonfree, when i install it, it downloads flahs.....tar.gz file from server and says md5 checksum error. or something.07:40
ketroxshishio, sudo apt-get install wine07:40
scottuxifconfig isn't giving me any useful ip addresses. I have a wireless card (internet connection) and a gigabit ethernet card connected directly to my NAS server07:40
shishiokk ill try07:41
sunogbagascottux: ifconfig.. find the line that says inet addr.07:41
thorscottux are you running ifconfig on the server?07:41
shishioketrox: after installing how do i use this?07:41
sunogbagascottux: do this on the remote machine07:42
ketroxshishio, wine somefile.exe07:42
scottuxinet6 addr has a funky hex code, not a familiar ip address07:42
sunogbagashishio: wine config07:42
scottuxsunobaga: the remote machine is a self contained linux based NAS drive. no screen, no ssh, just an ethernet port07:43
sunogbagashishio: wine <file.exe>07:43
shishioketrox: do i need to locate the file location on that ?07:43
sunogbagaow07:43
scottux*sunogbaga07:43
shishiosunogbaga: same to u07:43
=== Noir__ is now known as Noir56
pgshishio: from the repositories.  From the system menu, choose System -> Administration -> Synaptic package manager.  Then from the list of packages, find "wine" and install it.07:44
thorscottux do you have the docs on the drive? There should be a way to address the box to configure it...maybe via a web interface?07:44
pgrabi: tell me exactly what it says07:44
sunogbagashishio: are you running an installer?07:44
scottuxthor: yes, web interface is the usual method, but typically that's accessed via windows machine at address \\mybookworld\07:44
scottuxthor: and I can't manage to get there from linux07:45
rabipg: it downloads: the file from server, then says md5 checksum error, flashplugin-nonfree not installed.07:45
shishiosunogbaga: i am trying to run one of my windows xp programs07:45
GOdFAThe1ketrox: ok lol I did the flgrxinfo and it reloaded my session lol07:45
sunogbagascottux: can you access it using windows box? via web interface?07:45
sunogbagashishio: i suggest you install it first using wine07:46
PlayerWhat DNS server software is recommended for someone with simple needs on Ubuntu 7.10?07:46
thorscottux if that is what you are using in windows it should work in linux...assuming you are on the same network07:46
lazarus_lupinerabi, have you tried apt-get remove --purge flash-plugin-nonfree and then reinstalling?07:46
scottuxsunogbaga: ultimately if it comes to that, I suppose. I was attempting to leave the awful thing behind completely07:46
sunogbagashishio: run wine <installer.exe>07:46
scottuxthor: I am. The same computer even.07:46
thorscottux if nothing else, you should be able to ping mybookworld and find the address07:46
slytherinPlayer: dnsmasq07:46
GOdFAThe1ketrox: I assume that is what is supposed to happen eh?07:46
rabilazarus_lupine: yah i tried it, but not succeed.07:46

scottuxthor: simply "ping mybookworld" in terminal?07:47
thorowen1 did you set a vnc password (vncpasswd)07:47

owen1thor: yes, but got the same error (in the vnc, i only have field for ip. where do u enter this password?)07:48
scottuxhello eggroll07:48
thorscottux  right....it should return the ip address07:48
rabiis there any method to install manually Adobe Flash Player?07:48
scottuxunfortunately it returns: "unknown host mybookworld"07:49
sunogbagascottux: should your device supposedly has a default ip when connecting to a network?? (just a guess)07:49
shishiorabi: i got the same problem too07:49
thorowen1 you will be prompted for the password when you connect07:49
sunogbagashishio: yes i am07:49
shishiosunogbaga: reply ka naman pm ko07:49
sunogbagashishio: what software are u using?07:49
owen1thor: I get "connection refused" immediately.07:49
spongebobhi does anyone here knows a good .kar and .midi player for ubuntu that supports "channel" editing. I know pykaraoke exists and it's a good one but you can't edit or view the channelds. KMid exists but to tell you guys the truth it's crappy and useless pykaraoke are a lot better but i'm lookin for midi/kar player that supports channel viewing and editing.07:49
sunogbagashishio: registered ka ba? i can't receive you p07:49

rabican we install flalsh player by converting rpm package into deb package?07:50
thorowen1, are you running the vncserver on the ubuntu computer, and are you using the right ip address07:50
owen1thor: maybe i need to add a port?07:50
thorowen1 and do you have 590x open to the ubuntu box07:50
owen1thor: i went to preferences->remote desktop. is it enough?07:50
thorowen1 if you are using :1 for the server you need port 5901 open07:50
sunogbagashishio: wat software are you trying to run?07:50
pgrabi: the deb package jsut downloads the file from Adobe and installs it.  The message you got was that the file was not downloaded correctly.07:51
spongebob<rabi> : actually you can just copy the xpi and other .so to mozilla plugins dir07:51
Noir56Whats faster ndiswrapper or the built in drivers in the kernel?07:51
sunogbagascottux: but?07:51
shishiosunogbaga: im trying to run Silkroad online on ubuntu07:51

thorowen1 how did you start the vncserver in ubuntu?07:52

owen1thor: preferences->remote desktop. i checked a few checkboxes07:52
owen1thor: am i missing something?07:52
scottuxsunogbaga and thor: I'm trying to figure out what the default might be.07:52
shishiosunogbaga: okey07:52
thorowen1 in a terminal type 'ps ax | grep vnc' and see if vnc is running07:52
sunogbagascottux: the manufacturer should have docs for this07:52
owen1thor: ok, 1 sec07:52
pgrabi: an rpm package would probably do the same thing, though I'm not sure.  You can download the installation file yourself from Adobe and install it, but then you have to remember that it is installed, where it is installed and what version it is/07:53
shishiosunogbaga: u have a YM>? can i pm u in YM>? OMG thanks i finaly seen pinoy on ubuntu07:53
sunogbagashishio: erwin00307:53

JockeoI downloaded a gdm login manager theme from art.gnome.org and installed it into ubuntu using gdmsetup. However the theme doesn't show up in the list of themes.

AgentHeXsudo vi /boot/grub/menu.lst08:42
AgentHeXtry adding acpi=off to the module line including your kernel near the bottom of the file.08:42

bullgard4pg: If you can go back to an old kernel which functioned all right, then do it. I could not use my old functioning kernel after I upgraded from Feisty to Gutsy.08:58
AgentHeXCyberMad: what'd you do?08:58
rgnrif i get udp open|filtered unknown that means something blocks it?08:58

CyberMadi need to dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg  from recovery mode08:58

CyberMadAgentHeX i'm very happy :)08:59
nuvanquick question, searching hasn't helped much.  I'm trying to set up apache2, but whenever I try to access a CGI script i've got placed in /usr/lib/cgi-bin, my browser tries to download it instead of the server running it.08:59
wolsAdeman: linux is a 32bit system08:59
Ssamslytherin: what do i do witht he file08:59
wolsAdeman: check out nasm perhaps08:59
auskadigutsy is so  ucked up and nobody seesm to care08:59
pgbullgard4: I thought the kernel might be the problem.  It was updated in feisty recently.08:59
pgbullgard4: that's why I avoided upgrading to gutsy.08:59
nuvanthe directory is ScriptAlias'd, and i've tried adding an AddType directive,and uncommented the AddHandler directive, but neither helped08:59
nuvani've also chmod'd the file to make it globally executable09:00
CyberMadwhat is the best desktop search for ubuntu? i just found beagle...09:00
Ademanwols: well that's the thing, nasm doesn't have the same syntax as masm, and this is for school, i can't very well turn in code written for nasm when they want masm syntax09:00
auskadiyes well lucky nuvan i have to back up kill gutsy and reinstall fiesty09:00
AdemanCyberMad: *best* is subjective, but tracker was included by default in gutsy, so i suppose you could say that ubuntu developers think tracker is the best09:00
auskadiubuntu corporate wankers ...we dont all own a dell09:00
wolsAdeman: so stop the whining and use masm09:01
pgbullgard4: where do you get s2disk? Universe and Multiverse are enabled, but I don't see it.09:01
CyberMadAdeman so what is that?09:01
Ademanwols: is there some magical linux port of masm that i haven't heard of?09:01
AgentHeXCyberMad: find / -name '<keyword>' FOR THE WIN09:01
wolsAdeman: no09:01
AdemanCyberMad: tracker? it's a desktop search applications.09:01
CyberMadok thanks09:01
bullgard4pg: Yes, i agree that the Feisty kernel might be your problem. On the other hand, the Gutsy kernel has brought about other suspend/resume problems, as I experienced myself.09:02
Ademanwols: then how, pray tell, will i be using it?09:02
wolsAdeman: dosbox for example09:02
Ssamshould i paste a shell into the bin if so how?09:02
=== assasukasse_ is now known as assasukasse
wolsSsam: bash is a shell, ksh is a shell, what you have is a shellscript. totally different thing09:02
bullgard4pg: s2disk is part of uswsusp.09:02
freepenguinwww.freepenguin.it/index-en.html09:02

netsrotauskadi: what is wrong with gutsy?09:03
CyberMadAdeman ahh i get it.. so there is utility name Tracker :)09:03
Ssamwols i have no idea what i am doing man........how do i work this?09:03
CyberMadso what do you think, about using Beagle... in your opinion09:04
Ssamso i typed chmod 755 file.sh09:04
slytherinSsam: Have you created .sh file?09:04
wolsSsam: xreate a file and put that script in there09:04
Ssamwhich makes it executable09:04
AdemanCyberMad: yeah haha, sorry, someone should tell them not to name their applications after common nouns09:04
Ssamyes i have09:04
wolsSsam: so now run it09:04
Ssami pasted the text into an empty file then renmaed it flv2avi.sh09:04
gatenwhy won't nautlus show one of my local mounted drives? it shows every other one, except for my "winshare" drive. is it because it's fat32?09:05
Ssami chmod 755 flv2avi.sh first09:05
Ssam?09:05
AdemanCyberMad: unfortunately I really don't have an opinion, i haven't used either very much, but I like the *possibilities* with tracker, in the near future tracker could become a whole lot cooler, but for now i don't think there's any noticable difference09:05
wolsSsam: you said you already have09:05
AgentHeXgaten: probably.  if you made it skinny32, it might want to see it.09:05
slytherinSsam: yes and now from terminal go to directory that contains the file and do ./flv2avi.sh09:05
Ssami have i was just asking if i did the right thing09:05

Ssamdoes the flv have to be in the same folder as the shellscript09:06
gatenAgentHeX: it mounts fine. it just doesn't show up in Nautilus09:07
AgentHeXgaten: something like "mount -t vfat /dev/hdaX /mnt/windows" or whatever where X is the partition number.09:07
AgentHeXgaten: oh09:07

AgentHeXgaten: uh...  where is it mounted?09:07

salkotI feel like my system has gotten slower. What can I do to figure out the cause?09:10

gatenAgentHeX: correct09:10
AgentHeXare you able to see it on the cli as the user you're logged in as and not root?09:10
gatenAgentHeX: yes, for all intents and purposes, it works perfect. wait, let me amend my problem. it doesn't show up on the left hand side in nautilus, in the "shortcut" tree menu. i can browse to it by going to /media, but i can't see it listed in the shortcuts09:11

FeraconI recently installed Ubuntu 7.10, and I got my WUSB300N wireless card working on it. However, after logging out and back in ever sinse it hasnt worked09:41
BryanICQnumber, that didn't work btw >_>09:41
FeraconIm chatting here through XP unfortunatly =\09:42
Enoscan I install ubuntu  to a virtual pc?09:42
wolsEnos: yes09:42
FeraconI even reformatted my linux partition and reinstalled the NDISWrapper and NIC drivers09:43
Feraconand still it will not work09:43
RaverDKFeracon: hehe shame on you... :)09:43
EnosI want to install it to Connectix Virtual PC in windows09:43
AgentHeXEnos: it's actually owned by Microsoft now.09:43
FeraconIve only spent about 30 minutes in the Ubuntu OS and its addicting i want my internet to work on it ><09:43
AgentHeXEnos: and it's free.09:43
wolsFeracon: unless you give us error messages we cannot help. does the wlan interface show up in ifconfig -a? what does dmesg say, etc?09:43
EnosAgentHeX: yes I know, I have an old version09:44
FeraconI am getting no error message thats whats so diffucult about this09:44
Enoswhich is connectix09:44
BryanFeracon, did you try opening up a terminal and Feracon, did you try sudo modprobe -r -f <yourcardsname> sudo modprobe <yourcardsname>09:44
peter77Feracon: have you turned on restricted drivers?09:44
FeraconIt is stuck on receiving key from wireless router, and will not let me perform any action09:44
KalamansiIs it okay to run ubuntu desktop 7.10 as server?09:44
RaverDKFeracon: Well i give up getting my software RF kill switch to work in linux, and went online used 25$ and got me a out of the box working PCMCIA card....09:44
FeraconNo peter09:44
AgentHeXEnos: other VM solutions include VMware, VirtualBox, Qemu (and kqemu), and Parallels (if you have Intel VT or AMD SVM extensions on your CPU)09:44
peter77also if you're trying to access the internet by wifi then its more than likely you need wifi drivers for your computer!09:45
EnosI tried to install ubuntu in connectix but I failed09:45
FeraconI have the WUSB300N.tar driver set09:45
AgentHeXEnos: of course, you could go crazy and install Xen running Ubuntu as dom0 and try to get WinXP as domU, but that's just more trouble than it's worth :-P09:45
Feraconthey worked the first time09:45
AgentHeXEnos: then download Virtual PC from Microsoft.  again, it's free.09:45
FeraconDoes anyone know a easy way to get the system to run in level 1 ?09:46
peter77Feracon: so it is your wifi card that isn't working?09:46
EnosAgentHeX: I will, when I have better connection09:46
FeraconOr maybe its 3, which ever level it is that stops it from re entering X after you exit it09:46
wolsFeracon: do you mean runlevel1?09:46
Feraconyes! runlevel sir09:46
EnosAgentHeX: I even had to order the ubuntu cd09:46
FeraconI need to get out of X in order to install Nvidia drivers09:46
EnosAgentHeX: I have 7.0409:46
AgentHeXEnos: you on dial-up or something?  tin cans and a string maybe?09:46
AgentHeXEnos: :-D09:47
wolsFeracon: echo "false" >/etc/X11/default-display-manager09:47
EnosAgentHeX: yes I'm09:47
FeraconWols: thankyou, will that permanently stop it from auto re entering X ?09:47
Amaranthwols: That'll make X start then immediately exit09:47

kapmopi tried that and its still not working10:48
hangthedjin smb.conf do you have public = yes?10:49

Bryanhmm10:50
kapmopi tried installing gnash swf player, too. that worked, but it displays youtube funkily10:50
chiefhangthedj: the share is set to public yes10:51
aantnI get the following:10:51
hangthedjhmm, you might try gsambad, it used to be an amazing samba setup wizard.10:51
kapmopi'm guessing it could be related to the fact that i'm running amd64 instead of the usual i386 build10:51
aantnA Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) must be available in order to run Eclipse. No Java virtual machine was found after searching the following locations: /usr/lib/j2sdk1.4-sun/bin/java10:51
chiefhangthedj: http://pastebin.com/m1fa49c7 there is the config :)10:51

aantnI installed it from the medibutu repos10:53
hangthedjchief, i'm not sure what the default is, but you may want to uncomment the security = user10:54
amidaniel|awayaantn: You should probably install the 1.5 or 1.6 jre .. I'm not sure how friendly eclipse is with 1.410:54
hangthedjor change it to security = share.10:54

aantn/usr/bin/java10:59
wolsamidaniel|away: it might use jikes, but it certainly doesn't provide its own java runtime library11:00

CRoWsNeSTany one11:00
CRoWsNeSTplz help11:00
hangthedjprobably not that much help these days with samba, usually only have to copy a couple files, so i use scp11:00
erUSULwols: but i step aside if you are willing to guide her through manual instalation of the ati.com driver (something she will have to do every time the kernel, mesa, or the x server updates)11:00
amidaniel|awaywols: No, it doesn't provide the runtime, just a compiler (and a bad one at that ...)11:00
wolserUSUL: why would it? "ati" and compiz will work. Free driver instead of proprietary shit11:01
amidaniel|awayaantn: Okay, can you execute java -jar /usr/lib/eclipse/startup.jar ?11:01
hangthedjbut i remember gsambad being pretty awesome11:01
wolsamidaniel|away: jikes isn't bad11:01
magnetrondenardo: right click the network applet in the upper right corner, choose info11:01
wolsif it is jikes11:01
chiefhangthedj:  maybe, but as with most tools you need to know to use them :)11:02
hangthedjchief, in the terminal you could try findsmb, or smbtree and see what comes up?11:02
CRoWsNeSTwhy do i get this problem in desktop effects i get this when i click on it the Composite extension is not available11:02

wolserUSUL: not just maybe. everything up to x800 will work with i11:03
wols*it11:03
chiefhangthedj: just 1 machine itself11:03
amidaniel|awayaantn: Heh, alright :) If you're curious in investigating it more, there will be a configuration file somewhere in its millions of .ini's that points to the runtime to use for loading, which you should update to /usr/bin/java11:03
CRoWsNeSTSo can any one in here help me or no11:04

himdoes crossover office work better on certain distros?  and if so, which?11:42
ikoniahim: I think its pretty imparcial11:42
ikoniahim: there may be incompatabilities between distro's component versions (glibc / X11 for example)11:43
himI am using ubuntu and it has not performed as I would have hoped...11:44
gordonjcpmagnetron: stop that, please11:44
ikoniagordonjcp ?11:44
wolsikonia: the !jfgi11:44
ikoniahim in what way, cross-over's support groups may be the best palce to ask11:44
ikoniawols: I can't see it,11:44
gordonjcpI haven't got time to sit and hand-hold people through fixing a simple thing, and I can point them to a whole raft of help that *will* fix their problem11:45
gordonjcpmagnetron: perhaps you've got the time to help him?11:45
wols12:41 < magnetron> !jfgi | gordonjcp11:46
himI do not wish to be a burden11:46
ikoniawols: I don't have him on ignore yet I can't see him speak11:46
onatsis anyone implementing the apt-cacher with Acquire::http:Proxy?11:46
ikoniahim: burden to who ?11:46
gordonjcpdo you know what, maybe I just don't have time to help anyone at all any more, if that's the sort of thing people are going to come out with11:46
gordonjcp!ask | him11:46
ubotuhim: Don't ask to ask a question. Just ask your question :)11:46
zetheroowhats a really good program for video conversion in Ubuntu?11:47
ikoniazetheroo mencoder ?11:47
zetheroois that a program?11:47
ikoniazetheroo: yes11:47
magnetronzetheroo: avidemux install it with add/remove applications11:47
wolszetheroo: yes. ffmpeg too11:47
onatsheller?11:47
gordonjcpzetheroo: mencoder or ffmpeg11:47
zetherooI need something with a good easy to use GUI11:47
gordonjcpzetheroo: What exactly are you trying to do?11:47
dbeWhere can I get libpangoxft? Its not avalible at http://packages.ubuntu.com/.11:48
ikoniazetheroo acidrip can be used as a front end to mencoder, not sure about ffmpeg11:48
erUSULzetheroo: avidemux11:48
ikoniadbe: pango should be build against xft in the pango package11:48
zetherooI would like to be able to take my videos and convert them to smaller more compact files11:48
gordonjcpzetheroo: avidemux will probably help you with that11:48
dbeikonia: How can I check if its installed?11:48
gordonjcpI don't use it, because I find the GUI really hard to use11:48
ikoniadbe: dpkg -l | grep pango11:48
gordonjcpmencoder is a command-line tool, and much easier11:49
dfdI think there were some problems in last upgrades.. I can't run any gtk app anymore11:49
zetheroohmmm11:49
zetheroook11:49
zetheroothanks all11:49
gordonjcpzetheroo: what are you converting from and to?11:49
zetherooI'll give avidemux a try11:49
dfdgnome doesn't start at all, gdm crashes when I click on preferences, gnome-terminal segfaults, XFCE doesn't start, Inkscape crashes when I open the save dialog11:50
zetheroowell... I want to convert many formats11:50
dfdall worked fine before last upgrade..11:50
zetherooogg to mpg11:50
dbeikonia: ii  libpango1.0-0       1.12.2-0ubuntu3    Layout and rendering of internationalized te11:50
dbe          ii  libpango1.0-common  1.12.2-0ubuntu3    Modules and configuration files for the Pang11:50
gordonjcpif you've got more than a couple of videos to convert, it's actually much faster to use a command-line tool and write a script to do it11:50
zetheroomov to mgp11:50
himCrossover office works as advertised... with two minor problems... I can input English just fine, but when i attempt to input japanese it gives me question marks.  So I boot into japanese and it solves that problem... the input is still alittle strange but works.  The second problem is more troubling.  I get parts of my word documents appearing in a huge font blown up on my screen.  If I minimize work the large text still remains for a breif11:50
himperiod11:50
zetherooetc11:50
dbeikonia: I cant see libpangoxft there.11:50
ikoniadbe: thats because it may not be a pacakge, pango should be built against xft as I said earlier11:50
dbeikonia: Ok11:51
ikoniahim: I'd take that up with cross-over support groups11:51
dfdAnyone had this problem?11:51
ikoniadfd: if gnome is segfaulting, I'd re-install ubuntu11:51
ikoniadfd: you could go around the houses trying to trouble shoot that11:52
=== desti_T2 is now known as desti
dfdikonia, it started segfaulting from the last upgrade.. I'm using stable.. I can't see what I did wrong11:52
himok, thankyou.  I will have to do that.  I would be totally willing to use openoffice if it did not handle footnotes soo poorly11:52
dissidentis there an easy way to make another ext3 partition on another hdd while installing ubuntu11:53
dfdat the moment I installed KDE to have a desktop environment, but I need to use inkscape for my work11:53
ikoniadfd something has not gone well, but as I said, a sefault can take a while to gor through, your probably best just re-installing ubuntu unless it's critical11:53
dfdand also firefox crashes when I open a save dialog..11:53
ikoniadfd: what are you doing, gnome/xfce/kde all on the same box ?11:53
dfdI used only gnome11:53
ikoniadfd: how are you using firefox if you can't load a desktop ?11:53
ikoniadfd: then why are you installing kde and xfce11:53
dfdikonia, to have a desktop, since gnome doesn't start anymore11:54
ikoniadfd: ok, so kde is a work around11:54
dfdyes, it is a workaround for gnome, but I still need to run firefox, inkscape, etc11:54
dfdthey all crashes when I open save dialogs11:54
