Itakuive never had a problem00:07
p34rMegaqwerty: what is root:root? can i change that to my ssh username and also root?00:07
jonny239took about an hour though00:07
p34rjust so i dont have to re-login as root00:07
Itakui just reinstalled linux cuz someone hacked me and deleted my /bin00:07
Huffalumplevander, did you install your new hard drive?  if you have, just boot up with the ubuntu CD and during the install, tell it to use that empty disk.00:07
viatori cant acces my other machine which has a samba share on it00:07

viatori can see it on the network00:08
levanderHuffalump: What about installing grub, is there anything special I do?00:08
viatorbut cant connect00:08
p34rMegaqwerty: then i can make a group 'root' and add my user to it?00:08
Megaqwertyp34r: you can change it to root:username because I think ubuntu makes a group for every user00:08
MotherDearOK, so after installation, I took out CD and restarted like the wizard told me to, then while the computer was booting up, the first message it gave me was Loadinbg GNU. Loading GNU Please Wait... and then it freezes at that for more then 3 hours, (after that I shut it down)00:08
jonny239how can i login as as root from login screen in ubuntu?00:08
Megaqwertyp34r: there is already a group named root00:08
Huffalumplevander, by default grub will -at boot- give you the option between ubuntu and windows.  you can edit a simple text file to change defaults.00:08
p34rMegaqwerty: ok great, ty00:09
viatordo i have to add this laptops ip or name to the samba file00:09
Megaqwertyp34r: you're welcome00:09
Slartjonny239: you can't.. and you shouldn't.. use sudo00:09
Huffalumplevander, I did what you're doing several times last year when I was testing Ubuntu on different machines.  It works pretty painlessly.00:09
VideoGoBoomHello, Everyone. :-)00:09
p34rMegaqwerty: and i just do the sudo chown line, i dont need the chmod 700 line anymore, right?00:09
Slart!root | jonny23900:09
ubotujonny239: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo00:09
jonny239but u cant login to root from login screen00:09
=== Billenium is now known as Winrar
Megaqwertyp34r: no, you still do. the chmod line makes it so no one but the owner can see it00:09

Slartjonny239: no, you can't.. and you shouldn't.. as in "do not do it"00:09
Huffalumplevander, take a walkthrough here -> http://screencasts.ubuntu.com/Installing_Ubuntu_with_Windows_Dual-Boot00:09
ubotuTo install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash - Flash 9 is now available in dapper-backports and edgy-backports - See also !Restricted and !Gnash00:09
ubotuThe Flash plugin installation is currently broken. This is due to Adobe changing the tar file that the package downloads. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=636397 if you need to fix this immediately, but it's recommended to wait for an official fix.00:09
VideoGoBoomI am logged in via a LiveCD. How do I fix my video/screen resolution? I messed with a setting and now it is blank when I boot Ubuntu.00:10
p34rMegaqwerty: but group 'root' can?00:10
Pirate_HunterSlart: how different? let me explain i plugged in my n73 but it didnt pick it up in media so i needed to disconnect it before unplugging the cable... however ubuntu knows it plugged in but it doesnt show any interface... thats why it has to be done through terminal00:10
levanderHuffalump: The other complication is that after I finish getting my Linux box all right (I have several things I have to configure) I want to take out the XP hard disk.  You think the only complication will be reconfiguring grub?00:10
Megaqwertyp34r: so you might actually want the line to read chmod 770 if you want the group members to be able to see it too00:10
Slartjonny239: log in as your normal user and use sudo for root stuff00:10
jonny239i changed the root pasword but i need to be able to acess it through login screen00:10
Huffalumplevander, I would agree with that00:10
neverblueMotherDear, how many times have you started/restarted your system ?00:10
p34rMegaqwerty: how would i specify which group that would be? would it assume group 'root'? or what00:10
MotherDearI've re-installed about 3 times now.00:10
levanderHuffalump: cool, tx, I'm trying it.  Guess I just needed to verify my suspicions with someone.00:10
OmegaCent1Anyone know how to turn off "TAPPING" on touchpads in linux?00:10
=== Winrar is now known as Billenium
Huffalumplevander, if you transplant that hard drive to a different system.... keep in mind Windows has some setting you have to change00:11
Slartjonny239: why do you want to login as root?00:11
ubotuFor a comprehensive Synaptics Touchpad guide, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticsTouchpad00:11
Megaqwertyp34r: by changing the ownership of the file. chown root:root file means the file will be owned by the user root, and the group root00:11
neverblueMotherDear, always stopping at the same location, after the install ?00:11
levanderHuffalump: did you say something to me right before I logged out?00:11
MotherDearInstall, complete00:11
p34rMegaqwerty: so chmod it 770 then do the chown?00:11
MotherDearLoading GNU00:11
Huffalumplevander, I forget the name of the setting, but if you don't change it then the Windows hard drive will not recognize it's new environment.  So, check on Windows forums about transplanting hard drives.00:11
MotherDearLoading GNU Please Wait...00:11
Megaqwertyp34r: right. that should work00:12
neverblueMotherDear, so the install appeared to be fine (please respond with only one line) ?00:12

levanderHuffalump: Thanks, but the XP drive is getting reformatted in a different box after I'm doing with it.00:12
Huffalumpgood luck and have fun00:12
Megaqwertyp34r: note that by the user doing sudo nano file, they can still read it because sudo gives them root privileges, and you can't hide anything from root.00:12
levanderHuffalump: I didn't know that you could move XP hard disks around.  That might be handy for the future.00:12
MotherDearYes, Install was fine.00:12
SlartPirate_Hunter: I don't think the usb protocol can disconnect things.. you can finish writing to them.. you can yank the usb plug from the usb socket.. you can unmount usb drives.. but I don't think you can "disconnect" stuff from usb00:12
p34rMegaqwerty: oh...00:12
levanderHuffalump: I gotta shut down to take a hard disk outta this box.  Anything else?00:13

viatorwhen trying to connect via samba00:17
Megaqwertyp34r: if the file was readable by everyone, you probably want chmod 75500:17
viatorwhere should the homes file be anyway?00:17
syn`everytime i click it, it tells me that my system doesn't require any. but everyone's told me to do that. could it be that i don't have the onboard gfx card disabled?00:17
Megaqwertyp34r: and if it was owned by your user, you should probably do chown username:username00:17

LjLItaku, i told you to do « lsof | grep cdrom». not just grep cdrom00:26

Enronthats why I can00:26

simion314hi, i tried the other desktops xubuntu-desktop and kubuntu-desktop, and i found that i can;t uninstall them, i uninstall but the uninstall frees only 50 Kb of space, why?00:27
syn`dude, you're amazing. i love you.00:27
daxrocHi all00:27
Dr_Willissimion314:  because you are unistalling a meta-package.00:27
LjLEnron: however, i repeat once again, debian and ubuntu packages are NOT necessarily compatible, and using a debian sources.list on ubuntu or vice versa may have VERY bad effects00:27

InGunsWeTrustIs there any way to open p7m files used by outlook express in Ubuntu00:30
LjLDr_Willis, simion314: however, you can try "sudo apt-get autoremove" after removing kubuntu-desktop. sometimes, it seems to not have effect for some people... i don't know why... but it's worth trying. also, for Kubuntu at least, removing "kdelibs4c2a" mostly does the trick.00:30

preactionJids, which isn't what i asked, though using Darwin is legal yes. Using the OSX GUI and such without a license is not. you can install grub to /dev/hda4 (or whatever the ubuntu partition is) and try to get XP bootloader to see it somehow01:10

driftwoodi maybe wrong  but i understand that grub and the windows bootloader will occupy some of the same sectors at start of your hard drive , so one will always overwrite and interfer with the other (( am a beginner but did try hard at one stage to research this as Grub had some how totaly screwed up any way of booting into windows ))01:41
Eyemeanok thank you bod_01:41
driftwoodacidfire , stranger still u can create a new profile for a wifi connection (by clicking on new ). u can even give it the same name as your old one. this IS editable but does not help make connection ( maybe because i had to guess or leave blank some of the settings). sorry of little help here.. consider resetting your wifi to have minimum number of options, edit a new profile in wifi radar ,...01:42

DjerkafMasterShrek: There is no newer Bios. <=/03:06
MasterShrekeveryone be careful y2k!!03:06
seansthx bod03:06
MasterShrekDjerkaf, can you change the date in the bios?03:06
syn`i typed in LSPCI and got the BUSID for my graphics card (01:04.0). now how would i put that in my xorg.conf?03:06
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about realtek - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi03:06
DjerkafMasterShrek: You mean just the system clock?03:06
AFarris01does anybody have any ideas for my sound problem?03:06
CaBlGuYHmmmm   anyone??03:06
MasterShreksyn`, you dont, you just load a driver from the xorg afaik, what kind of card is it?03:06
CaBlGuYhaving issues with Realtek ALC883..  anyone help?03:06
MasterShrekDjerkaf, yes03:06
bod_Djerkaf: the milennium bug was a bios problem due to the fact that they could not understand that there could be any date after 31/12/1999 ,.,. a bios update usually fixed the problem i think ,.,. but do u/ have u ever had a syystem without this error?03:06
CaBlGuYsorry.. :p03:06
syn`radeon 920003:07
ubotuTo install the Ati/NVidia drivers for your video card, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto03:07
DjerkafMasterShrek: I guess the date is set to present time... Why shouldn't it 0o03:07
Djerkafbod_: I have got that error on all old computers I've tried to install it on.03:08
MasterShrekDjerkaf, obviously its not set to present time, you said it was 07/29/199903:08
CaBlGuYanyone..  anyone at all??   realtek ALC883...03:08
viatori have it on alot of old computers03:08
DjerkafMasterShrek: Well I obviously thought you ment the bios date03:08
bod_Djerkaf: is ur machines bios fully up-to-date?03:08
viatorand my date is fine03:08
syn`MasterShrek: that doesn't work for me. if i hit restricted drivers, it tells me i don't need any.03:08
MasterShrekDjerkaf, wherever it says 1999 make it 2000 lol03:08
bod_MasterShrek: ur rite the milennium bug was a bios problem03:09
DjerkafMasterShrek: It's kinda hard changing a digit that comes from the bios...03:09
MasterShreksyn`, you can use the vesa driver in your xorg.conf or try using the binary ati drivers from their site (vesa is a generic driver, youll get a gui but bad performance)03:09
bod_Djerkaf: is ur bios up to date?03:09
CaBlGuYPici:   0/   how goes it?03:09
MasterShrekDjerkaf, isnt there a way to change the date in the bios setup utility?03:09
Djerkafbod_: It's an old PC, the bios is from that date I wrote, 07/29/199903:09
Djerkafbod_: I guess03:09
syn`oh, okay.03:10
Djerkafbod_: Hard to find information about it03:10
bod_Djerkaf: yer i no,.,. find out wot motherboard ur using then search google for newer bios's03:10
bod_Djerkaf: ul have to make a bootable floppy to install the new bios03:10
DjerkafMasterShrek: What is it you don't get...? The date of the bios is 1999 and is IMPOSSIBLE to change, the "date of the world" is correct, that means 2008.03:11
Onyxdate of the world.03:11
Djerkafbod_: I have the latest bios for my motherboard.03:11
bod_Djerkaf: r u saying that a motherboard u have has no idea that the world doesnt end on the date u said earlier?03:12
Djerkafbod_: Is it simply enough impossible to install an ubuntu system on a computer from before 2000 ?03:12
bod_Djerkaf: NO ,.,. i have succesfully solved this problem03:12
JasonWoofDjerkaf: mine is from 200003:12
JasonWoofDjerkaf: you might have to upgrade the ram03:12
Djerkafbod_: Not really sure what you mean. The system clock is correct, but the bios is from 07/29/1999.03:12
xoqaStarnestommy: thanks, it's booting into kdm now =)03:13
bod_Djerkaf: so wots the problem?03:13
FaDjerkaf update your bios?03:13
bod_JasonWoof: updating the memory will do nothing03:13
Librustraliaw00t I fixed my comp!03:13
mklebelis it possible to edit or open .so files?03:13
Djerkafbod_: Well I get that error message, that should be pretty obvious from my first message here. :P03:13
MasterShrekmklebel, i dont think so, those are compiled afaik, youd prolly need the source code03:13
bod_Djerkaf: wot error message ,.,. sorry didnt c it?03:14
Djerkafbod_: the message disappears when using noacpi , but it can't identify the format of the disk when partitioning.03:14
mklebelk thanks, Master Shrek03:14
Rubinmklebel, why do you need to?03:14
Djerkafbod_: "bios age(1999) fails cutoff(2000)"03:14
shaft0rsearch is not working for me.. where is the xorg.conf file located?03:14
bod_Djerkaf: yer trust me that is an outdated bios,.,. u DONT HAVE THE LATEST BIOS03:14
Rubinshaft0r, does locate xorg.conf not print anything?03:15
shaft0rRubin, I was using search in the gui... didnt try locate, sorry.. I'll try that next time.03:15
Djerkafbod_: And you are sure of that, just like that, without knowing when the motherboard was stopped made?03:15
Rubinshaft0r, oh, i wasnt scolding you, was just curious if it was broken03:15
shaft0rIf I backup xorg.conf and then run nvidia-settings, will i be able to restore it ok if nvsettings screws something up?03:16
Rubinshaft0r, yep. its just a text file03:16
nickrudshaft0r: yes, that's the exact right thing to do03:16
MasterShrekshaft0r, just remember what you backed it up as and just replace it if you need03:16
Djerkafbod_: I can't even find my specific board on the manufacturor's homepage. I'm pretty sure I'm shit out of luck when it comes to bios updating.03:16
bod_Djerkaf: either im right or the motherboard ur using is 1 of a kind and no one has fixed the milennium bug03:16

FernandoLbod_ and I respond, and you don't talk in the private convo, then you expect me to know that you switched back here without saying anything, and I don't know how to use a keyboard. To answer your question, no, my speaker doesn't have a cross on it, and my sound is not muted.04:14

biousershoot me now04:36
jrib!alternate | achandrashekar04:36
ubotuachandrashekar: 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 !Minimal04:36
biousermight as well go for the glory and compile alsa from source04:37
nickrudjason0_: you'd have to compile it. Did gtkpod cause you to lose any album art?04:37
nickrudjason0_: or maybe use kde4 if it has that version of amarok04:37
bod_FernandoL: in the terminal type "modprobe snd-sb450" (Without quotes)04:37

achandrashekarjrib: okay... it seems then that the video card on the ppc box doesnt install cleanly..so its off to try the alternate..no guarantee that it will install X right?04:38
jason0_nickrud: I don't have album art but a large music collection that seems to cause gtkpod to barf.04:38

biousers0ulstice, try sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras04:38

mewshiDuke_Fluke, what are you looking at?04:39
Duke_Flukemewshi, i did notice one small thing04:39
jribachandrashekar: it will probably install, but then it will probably fail when you try to enter X too.  So you'll need to drop to a shell and resolve whatever the issue is04:39

bod_FernandoL: ???04:41

mewshiWait, so you think that changing the monitor might fix that?04:41
Duke_Flukemewshi,  i meant your "Monitor" setting under Section "screen"04:41

Duke_Flukemewshi, hold on pastebinning :)05:18
mewshiOh ^_^05:18

Gekkomon_Shogunhey bod_ what file am i looking for05:34
fuzzyPDFs are blurry as hell, ive tried 3 different programs, should i just stab myself in the face?05:34
=== Q_Continuum is now known as Q_Contoxicated
CarlFKhmm, mixer_app /dev/snd/controlC0 - which is normal, right?  maybe I should back up.  is there a "troubleshooting sound issues" page?  it made noise an hour ago, so I have the right sound card drivers05:35
jusoWhen I run: find "/home/servers/*/databases -mtime +15 | xargs rm -f" from command line it works just fine, but when its in a cron script it doesn't seem to rm anything.  Anyone have an idea?05:36
bod_Gekkomon_Shogun: anything that has the word "plugin" in the description05:36
zcat[1]I open pdf's in evince, and I've never had a problem with them being blurry...05:36
crimsunCarlFK: that's normal.  That's the speaker icon (mixer applet) in the right of the top panel.05:36
crimsunCarlFK: what's the issue?05:36
[deXter]Does ubuntu come with flash, pdf, mp3, dvd support out of the box without any installation?05:36
CarlFKcrimsun: ok.  mplayer sound.wav works.  play sound.wav doesn't05:36
MasterShrekfuzzy, are they all blurry? did u try at different zoom levels?05:36
MasterShrek[deXter], no, no, no and no lol05:36
fuzzythey eventually get better, after 15 minutes of loading05:37
Duke_Flukemewshi, whats your lcds exact model the magnavox?05:37
bazhang[deXter]: not all, no05:37
Q_Contoxicated[deXter], out of your list, pdf only.  flash and mp3 prompt you, DVD is a little more tricky05:37
zcat[1][deXter]: no, unfortunately it can't due to various laws and restrictions05:37
[deXter]MasterShrek, thanks a lot, just wanted to confirm it.05:37
crimsunCarlFK: play, from sox?05:37
zcat[1][deXter]: if you enable the medibuntu repository, and apt-get install libdvdcss2 ubuntu-restricted-extras, you will get pretty much all of that installed for you though05:38
Q_Contoxicated[deXter], when you fire up Firefox and hit a Flash-enabled page it will prompt you, same with MP3s and similar patent-encumbered file types, to automagically install.05:38
crimsunCarlFK: does `aplay /usr/share/sounds/*up.wav`?05:38
CarlFKcrimsun: yes05:38
CarlFKer, yes sox.  trying aplay05:38
[deXter]Q_Contoxicated, yes, thanks. I just wanted to confirm if anything changed in Gusy.05:38
=== x86- is now known as z80asm
turk09where are turks05:39
Q_Contoxicated[deXter], Aaah.  Flash has two choices now: Adobe/Macromedia, and GPL'd version (I forget the name, I want to say GNASH)05:39

CarlFKcrimsun:  aplay same error as play: ALSA lib confmisc.c:769:(parse_card) cannot find card '�WoPCI'05:39
zcat[1][deXter]: I would point out that windows also cannot play flash, many media formats, or dvd's without adding additional software..05:39
mewshiwhat's the "DisplaySize" line do O-o05:40
crimsunCarlFK: do you have an ~/.asoundrc and/or /etc/asound.conf ?05:40
andresjis there a command line tool that will generate for me pie graphs and similar? or maybe with python bindings?05:40
Duke_Flukemewshi to do that  you need to know your monitor.....good question the pixels maybe? like the native resolution or something?05:40
zcat[1]Oh, and yes, ubuntu coems with evice to display pdf's, and openoffice.org which can save directly to pdf...05:40
mewshiwhich is why the "mode" line says "1440x900"05:41
kaboombobdoes anybody in here refer to themselves as an ubuntu guru?05:41
zcat[1]so the answer was 'no, yes, no no and no' I think...05:41
fuzzyis there a reason why that pdf viewer clogs my computer to the point of non usuability?05:41
crimsunkaboombob: hopefully not.05:41
* nickrud looks around and laughs himself sick05:41
kaboombobcrimsun why not?05:42
Duke_Flukemewshi, just experiment abit use the samsung as a guide and play around with it...its easy to restart X05:42

mewshiI just need to know what to change to what05:42
fizzlecya in the morning05:42
zcat[1]fuzzy: either your computer sucks, or you're trying to view very broken pdf's ..05:42
crimsunkaboombob: something involving meditation...05:42
kaboombobcrimsun in reference to knowing a vast majority of the ins and outs of ubuntu not meditation05:43
crimsunCarlFK: meaning, if you have either, try removing it/them05:43
marx2kHow does one change the ports apache listens on?05:44
CarlFKcrimsun: ill try removing - do I need to restart anything after removing?05:44
crimsunCarlFK: no, just restart the alsa apps05:44
Flannelmarx2k: change it in your vhost (thats the sites in /sites-available) and also make sure the port is in ports.conf05:44
zcat[1]intersting anecdote ... the last time I ran into a problem with 'ubuntu can't open this pdf' it turned out that the download had failed, the file was an html 404 page, with a pdf extension...05:45
marx2kFlannel: Do you happen to know a link to a tutorial for that? I only installed the xampp suite today and dont know default dirs for those files even05:45

zcat[1]mandelson: beryl is depricated, you want compiz fusion. If you're running gutsy you already have compiz-fusion05:46
mewshiOk, Duke_Fluke, what exactly do I need to change? :\05:46

ubotuTo install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash - Flash 9 is now available in dapper-backports and edgy-backports - See also !Restricted and !Gnash06:03
ubotuThe Flash plugin installation is currently broken. This is due to Adobe changing the tar file that the package downloads. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=636397 if you need to fix this immediately, but it's recommended to wait for an official fix.06:03
bod_Gekkomon_Shogun: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine?highlight=%28wine%2906:04
KurtKrautoldude67, yes... but you'd need to copy the partition content, not the partition itself. So you'd need to create a new partition in the other hardrive and past the files from one to another.06:04
bazhangkaboombob: what is your dmesg output when inserting the drive? paste it in pastebin (not here in the channel) !paste will give you the link where to do so06:04
oldude67KurtKraut, well i will hold off on that till i can keep my internet from going down as its my router box06:04

misslecommanderi still need to update the vidcard somehow06:44
unoppkundu, the easiest way might be to use syslinux and a drop-in kernel image .. check out the DSL website, it's got a few good howtos06:44
Andrew250I can't even do the updates06:44
Andrew250It boot and then freezes in under 3 mins06:44
misslecommanderbiggest issue on getting anything to work was getting on the internet with it first, alot of other problems go away after you do that06:44
misslecommanderandrew you on the linix box now ?06:45
Andrew250Internet is connected right from the install06:45
badkittyGothicProphet: LOL06:45
GothicProphetIt disappeared on me...06:45
badkittyGothicProphet: goody goody gumdrops!06:45
GothicProphetSo now I can't get past the "select time zone"06:45
misslecommanderi am noob, so just voicing what i had to do. i have freeze issues as well. sometimes i can force close app, but other times i cant06:45
kaboombobmastershrek i kind of got that much of it and i did know it was 2 commands how do i know which one is my next thing to mount tho cause it wont be /dev/sdb if im not mistaken06:45
badkittyGothicProphet: HAHA.. you sure tab doesn't work06:46
MasterShrekkaboombob, the sudo part is so that you have administrator privlidges to make that directory and to mount the drive (sudo is a very big thing in linux because it provides a good layer of security for your system) the sh basically tells the command line that it will be receiving a shell script (sh stands for shell i believe) and the stuff in the quotes is the actual command, with the semicolon and the quotes it appears as one c06:46
MasterShrekommand in a sense06:46
misslecommanderwhat a pain it was to get wireless hooked in, it was like slow death, bad06:46
pkunduFlannel, gave me wat i am looking for thnx man06:46
GothicProphetQuite... Tried it... it was sitting there on the New York option after every attempt...06:46
kaboombobmastershrek k i knew that to06:46
MasterShrekkaboombob, well that all depends on your setup06:46
jay-oh-enwhat os by ubuntu should i get if i have these system specs06:46
jay-oh-enSysinfo for 'ubuntu': Linux 2.6.22-14-generic running KDE 3.5.8, CPU: AMDAthlon643000+ at 1000 MHz (2102 bogomips), , RAM: 998/1011MB, 124 proc's, 3.3h up06:46
MasterShreksdb2 maybe, or possibly sdc106:47
nickrudjay-oh-en: you can run any of the ubuntus.06:47
kaboombobmastershrek i dont know the syntax to well yet but im getting there slowly so just look for a change next time is the only way to know what the mount point is06:47
jay-oh-ennickrud: what will be the best looking or fastest06:47
kaboombobmastershrek also how can i tell what the filesystm type is?06:48
misslecommanderyes, the sytax is somewhat like learning dos all over again, or atleast it reminds me of that06:48
jay-oh-ennickrud: im on ubuntu live cd but i have a bunch of cds so i can install xubuntu06:48
MasterShrekkaboombob, if you were to type: sudo fdisk -l     in a command line it should tell you what u need to know06:48
jay-oh-ennickrud: or whatever os06:48
nickrudjay-oh-en: xubuntu would run the fastest, and looks is a matter of taste. I think kde and xfce are tasteless myself :)06:48
MasterShrekkaboombob, it lists all the partitions that are present as well as their filesystems06:48
kaboombobmastershrek cool i kind of knew that one to06:48
jay-oh-ennickrud: want to see my current setup of kde and say its tasteless?06:48
unopkaboombob, usually you dont have to mess with mount on the command line, your device should automatically mount06:49
nickrudjay-oh-en: I'm sure it's gaudy, I like a nice bland desktop, nothing to get in the way of work06:49
Trebelnickrud: i'm with you on that one06:49
MasterShrekkaboombob, then all you have to do is make a new mount point for it, and then mount it. most of the time you wont even need the -t in the mound command. but i never put the two commands together myself...its always sudo mkdir /mount/point      then    sudo mount /dev/sdc2 /mount/point06:49
kaboombobunop i know but both of my usb things i have connected have had some major issues06:49
jay-oh-ennickrud: http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s272/pronege/mydekstop2.png06:49
unopkaboombob, in this case, it probably failed to mount because of the invalid parition table on the device which is why we had to resort to the command line06:50
MasterShrekunop, if it had an invalid partion table it would mount anyway afaik06:50
nickrudjay-oh-en: oh, my eyes!!! all the K' and gears , the horror ...06:50
jay-oh-ennickrud: but im tired of it looking so pretty im ready for functionallity cause that doesnt have any of it i have alot of problems06:51
jay-oh-ennickrud: stop playing around haha06:51
jay-oh-enMasterShrek: what you think of my desktop since your a kde user06:51
unopMasterShrek, well, it seems hald didnt auto-mount it .. but mount did mount it06:51
MasterShrekkaboombob, would yo happen to know if your user is a member of the plugdev group? i dont know if u need to be in ubuntu (as i dont really use it much) but in slack you do06:51
nickrudjay-oh-en: you can pimp gnome and xfce also.06:51
MasterShrekjay-oh-en, how u konw i was a kde user? lol06:51

Andrew250it is06:56
jay-oh-enMasterShrek: i have kde installed i just cant get my printer to work i have a mp730 and06:56
MasterShrekkaboombob, hmm is there a hald group maybe?06:56
jay-oh-enremove and06:56
albatross_bod: try build essential then you can make your own06:56
nickrudjay-oh-en: I wouldn't be the right person to ask, I've been running gnome since I started. Sampled many, but never stuck with them long enough to become familiar06:56
MasterShrekjay-oh-en, i dont know much about printers, u install cups?06:56
nemanja_kde is very bad!06:56

albatrossbod_ an hour? that's a long ass time you can do a lot of programming06:57
nemanja_ubuntu - gnome06:57
MasterShrekkaboombob, try adding your user to that group, logging out and back in and then plug ur flash drive in06:57
albatrossi mean, most of it will be spent finding it doesnt compile but it's fun06:57
bod_albatross: not when ur not a programmer,.,. all i can do is write  script to start amarok on log-in06:57
nemanja_Ima li srba ovde??06:57
kaboombobmastershrek ok why am i doing that tho?06:57
albatrossbod_: seriously though i'd suggest wireshark i find snooping my house network fascinating06:58
jay-oh-enwho here has tested all of the ubuntus xfce kde gdk just tell me what was the best06:58
GothicProphetWireshark is fun.06:58
bod_albatross: wot does it do?06:58
GothicProphetbod_: it's a packet sniffer.06:58
albatrossits designed for network analysis, it caputures packets, basically you can see who's looking at what over a network06:58
jay-oh-ennot just best as in best i mean in all around there can be a little problems i can fix themm but what was the fastest and had the lease problems with hardware06:58
MasterShrekkaboombob, i have a feeling your user does not have hald (which is your hardware abstraction layer daemon, hence hald) permissions. thats what my problem in slackware was and after i added my user to the plugdev group, automounting worked06:58
bod_albatross: im the only linux machine in the house06:58
jay-oh-enMasterShrek: can you make slackware look nice? do you still run it?06:59
GothicProphetbod_: Is yours the only system in the house at all?06:59
albatrossbod_: it works on a more fundamental level than that, you basically pick up all traffic (if you're on a wireless of hub based network) and you can sift through it06:59
MasterShrekjay-oh-en, kde 3.5.806:59
bod_GothicProphet: no06:59
bod_albatross: cool!!!!06:59
albatrossif the general discussion is about window managers, which it seems to be: i'd suggest ion07:00
badkittyjay-oh-en: Doesn't backtrack run off of slackware ... I thought it looked alright07:00
GothicProphetbod_: Then you can see all the packets, like albatross said, from a wireless network and sort through'em.07:00
extractedEttercap allows for sniffing of packets across switched networks !07:00
albatrossyeah arp spoofing isnt so hard07:00
bod_GothicProphet: gettin it now ,.,. cool!!!! any others?07:00

badkittyextracted: Its a Pen testing distro besed on I believe slackware... comes as a live cd :-)07:02
extractedif its like another live cd ver of linux, I know there is one thats based on Fedora thats out as well07:02
unopmarx2k, if it's strictly ssh -- cat /path/to/localfile | ssh user@host 'cat -> /path/to/remotefile'07:02
jay-oh-ennickrud: what distro is that07:02
unopmarx2k, but you're better off using something like scp07:02
bod_GothicProphet: shouls i run wireshark or wireshark (as root)07:02
nickrudjay-oh-en: ubuntu07:02
extractedbadkitty I like knoppix std because it allows you to craft your own packets07:02
marx2kah scp, thats it thnks07:03
GothicProphetbadkitty: now that this is back up and running correctly... I should select the 'guided - resize' option yeah?07:03
jay-oh-ennickrud: not xfce?07:03
GothicProphetbod_: wireshark (as root) is the one I run.07:03
nickrudjay-oh-en: nope. I cut all the frills07:03
MasterShrekjay-oh-en, nothing matters about the distro, ubuntu can be made to look like fedora or suse or anything07:03

jordoexOshaMaHUe: then try ndiswrapper, it uses the windows driver, search on the ubuntu wiki07:18
nickrudbod_: you can't break anything there, and you can get back the defaults for any tree with:   gconftool --recursive-unset /path . For example, gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel  will return your panels to default07:18
bod_MasterShrek: im the only user07:18
MasterShrekkaboombob, mount it and type: df    in a command line and see what it says for free space and stuff07:18
bod_nickrud: ok but wot can i do with it?07:19
Gekkomon_Shogunbod_ theirs no one their07:19
MasterShrekbod_, you could add another user, or delte that one and re-create it, is what i mean, it wont break your entire system, just that user07:19
OshaMaHUejordoex: ok thanks07:19

GothicProphetjay-oh-en: And since it's down, I haven't bothered to look on the forums.07:52
ivanteranwell, I guess the main reason for that feeling I have about the linux desktop is that the mainstream big companies do not port their apps like on mac os x07:52
GothicProphetivanteran: They don't see much reason to.  Comparatively, linux users account for a very small percentage of total systems out there.07:53
umair007hello people can i plz ask a question07:53
GothicProphetivanteran: We get more people using Linux, and more companies will start producing apps for it.07:53

bod_umair007: is ur graphics card a 3d hardware accelerator card?07:55
BoglizkFlannel: Thanks.. but they should really put that under apps > Internet.07:56
umair007another thing is that i dont think there are any propreitory drivers released for it07:56
badkittyI say if people want compiz, they should get nvidia07:56
umair007its a chipset not a graphic card and its dx 9 supporting07:56
