singlesunBluey, was it a windows modem?00:03
ubotushawn_selig29: The Ubuntu Desktop CD is a "LiveCD" which can be run without altering existing files on your harddrive. Especially useful for testing your hardware's compatibility, it also includes an install option.00:03

PriceChildshawn_selig29, the desktop cd will run perfectly00:05
singlesunBluey, someone correct me if im wrong but I dont believe that linux supports winmodems because most of those types of modems are actually software based.... you would most likely need to buy an external modem00:05
_Oz_It's going to go on all of my computers.00:05
PriceChildshawn_selig29, well... still slow because its a live cd, but it will work fine.00:05

pocketdrummerHey, does anyone know how to Password protect a folder? Kind of like you have to do when you open synaptic?00:16
Pelobill_,  compiz is already on gutsy, it's desktop effects in the appearance menu , under prefs,  yuou can add other compix dialog from synaptic00:16

amenadopocketdrummer-> hmm..i wonder if setacl would work, i have not tried it myself yet00:18
Pelopocketdrummer, , your /home folder is specify to your username, other users on your computer don'T technicaly have access to it00:18
DraiconeI tried compiling glade from source but now I don't know how to open it00:18
theCarpenter /etc/alternatives/editor yields 'nano' (which is what i want) but it still pops up vim when i try to 'edit <filename>'00:18
PeloDraicone, type glade in the terminal00:18
Schuenemannhi, how do I install ruby 1.8.9 to ubuntu?00:19
astro76theCarpenter: oh whoops, it's editor as I mentioned in the command I gave, edit is something else entirely00:19

SchuenemannPelo, that's very... optimistic :-)00:21
lymecaWhat should I do if I erased my MacBook's EFI boot partition and UBuntu won't load?00:21
Pelopocketdrummer, just make a guest user for loging in00:21
geniitheCarpenter: The symlink /usr/bin/editor           then still points to vim00:21
amenadopocketdrummer-> did you consider what I suggested?00:21
pocketdrummeramendo: I'm not sure what it was, lol. I'm new at linux.00:22
geniitheCarpenter: On my box for instance /usr/bin/editor points to /etc/alternatives/editor which in turn points to nono00:22
PeloSchuenemann, compiling is just 3 commands,   ./configure , make and make install,  , that's excluding the dependencies you might have to install00:22
amenadopocketdrummer-> its the same concept used in windows,  access control list == acl00:22
Elevator_HazardOk so my usb audio sound seems to be working pretty nicely now... removed pulseaudio but now the sound is filled with static.00:22
aetherfunkIs there by chance a DJ, as in somebody who mixes, in here?00:22
astro76pocketdrummer: I think access control lists are definitely way overkill, simple permission would be fine but you need a separate guest account as Pelo mentioned to make either way work00:23
surrealdealno, but my aunt is a recording engineer.00:23

maximilionElevator_Hazard: Hmm wait, is this on a laptop?00:25
Elevator_Hazardmaximillion: desktop.00:25
PeloSchuenemann,  1.8.6  is probably more recent then 1.8.2,   1.8 is the version,  the last digit is probably just some update for security or fixes00:26
PeloAlpha-Toxic,  what are you doing here ?00:26
nonlocalHi. I am having a problem with nautilus not starting. Resultantly, no wallpaper, desktop icons, the 'Places' menu items don't work, etc. I have tried killing the nautilus process, and reinstalling the nautilus package, but so far no luck. Any suggestions would be great. (Gutsy Gibbon)00:26
maximilionOK. Never had a USB sound card that picked up interference00:26
Elevator_Hazardmaximillion: one thing you should know is that using alsa its liek this, but pulseaudio its fine. I'd use pulseaudio but most of the time sound won't work.00:26
Woofcatany know if its possible to install another debian based system over toop of an existing linux mint install00:26

sinsunhow to change root's passwd?00:28
astro76!root | sinsun00:28
ubotusinsun: 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/RootSudo00:28
maximilionElevator_Hazard: Well, maybe pulseaudio does not read mic inputs at all?00:28
Alpha-ToxicPelo: i was reinstalling my irc client and freenode is one of the first servers I add, so... i ended up here00:28
nonlocalExtend: er. ls shows: ls: *.gnome*: No such file or directory00:29

badkittywebito: ANyway I am using 1 Gig and its fine01:59
LjLbadkitty, ak5_: those magic numbers mostly make no sense. with today's amount of memory, what really matters is the ability to hibernate (AND to have some swap available, swap is not useless at all, just making it as big as the RAM itself will normally be more than fine)01:59

alanbshepard70How can I fix this issue? I tried a few tips found on google and in the forums but none worked. They mainly involved fstab. I can mount the ipod using fstab but It's mounted with root permissions and I can't use it that way. Also I have to do it manually each time.02:27
Dr_willisalanbshepard70,  withthe proper fstab entry/options the user can mount/unmount the device.02:28

Peloalanbshepard70, there is a command to reload fstab for the changes to be taken into acount but I can never remember it02:31

_Oz_are you still at that dialog box?  leave both of them ticked02:32
_Oz_smb and NFS02:32
Peloalanbshepard70, I'm not sure,  I was just correcting the permission bit on that line,  if it mounted before for root it will now mount for the current users02:32
alanbshepard70Pelo: Ok.02:33
keithclark _Oz_ I cannot share both....I have a choice02:33
Pelomaximilion, --purge is to completely remove the settings and other things associated with the pacakge, so instaling with a purge seems a bit odd to me02:33
_Oz_you're one step further than I thought you were02:33
keithclarkno problem02:33

_Oz_then press 'enter'02:39
maximilionPelo: Game works fine, and with aoss I manage to get sound... very choppy02:39
_Oz_it'll ask you for your password02:39

_Oz_then it asks for new SMB password02:40
Pelomaximilion, check in the sound settings make sure that the proper device is selectedfor all the sound events02:40

meoblast001Pelo: the font on my login screen is super huge..... and the gnome panel is super huge for a split second on login.... and occationally the title bars are super huge too02:42
Peloneopsyche, look in synaptic,  search for the pacakge,  right click , properties  there shoudl be someting in there, or in the menu ( once the package is selected)02:42
oboy03Pelo: is this correct gksu gedit hda1/etc/x11/xorg.conf02:42
Pelomeoblast001, ok , very odd, first I hvae ever heard of this,  gimme a minute to think on it02:42
_Oz_now type this: sudo smbpasswd -L -e keith02:43
meoblast001Pelo: k.... and i reinstalled the OS and it still does it02:43
Pelooboy03, should be someting like  /media/disk1/etc....02:43
Pelooboy03,  assuming the hdd gets mounted to your desktop02:43

neopsychePelo: thanks02:45

oboy03Pelo: no luck02:46
bazhanghmm strange question; I have two updates, one is firefox, the other is the flash one--but the other day Riddell helped me through upgrading the flash non-free; will this second update negate the first one and possibly bork my system flash wise?02:46
Pelomeoblast001,  did your comp work well before witu ubuntu I mean ?02:46
meoblast001Pelo: it did work well before02:47

meoblast001Pelo: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller02:47
Pelooboy03, boot the recovery mode of your installed ubuntu ,  type sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf  edit it from there02:47
Pelomeoblast001, well installing 915 resolution might help a bit possibly but I donT, think so02:47
oboy03Pelo: how do i go to the recovery mode?02:48
sp219`brbchose recovery mode from the boot menu02:48
Pelomaximilion, sorry I am out of ideas, maybe someone else02:48

meoblast001Pelo: ill just get over it..... or downgrade to feisty..... if i had time to download it02:48
meoblast001Pelo: or i could just stop using computers since they piss me off anyways02:49
shawn_selig29im finally installing latest gusty ubuntu version on my laptop..i hope itll run good02:49
Pelooboy03, no take out the live cd and boot from the hard drive, you can select the recovery mode from the grub boot menu, if you don'T usualy get the boot menu on startup,  type esc just after the bios stuff and taht will get you in the boot menu02:49
zappitelli16Hey does anyone know how to troubleshoot gstreamer installation?02:50
Pelomeoblast001,  I recommend the latter,  RL as so much to offer and you can actualy touch the women02:50
Peloshawn_selig29, best of luck02:50

zappitelli16I tried to download a video file, and it said I needed additional plugins, when I tried to install them, An error message came up saying they conflicted with other packages.02:51
Pelomeoblast001, RL = real life , as opposed to computer02:51
Pelozappitelli16, what was the file ?02:52

neopsychebazhang: thanks for the help.. if you could .. can you compile kalva for gutsy?03:29
Johnny_5nrossin: sorry that's all i got03:29
nickrudnrossin: I was assuming you were in another console, since you specified the tty703:29
nrossinnickrud: Okay, so that started gdm in tty3, but what happened to everything on tty7?03:29
bazhangneopsyche: let me take a quick look03:29
neopsychebazhang: ok thanks03:30
nickrudnrossin: should be back in tty7, possibly 8.03:30

questionallthingQ: How do I retrieve my root password? I don't remember setting it up in installation for 7.10 Client.03:30
Pici!root | questionallthing03:30
ubotuquestionallthing: 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/RootSudo03:30
neopsychebazhang: http://hafizpariabi.blogspot.com/2007/12/install-kalva-in-kubuntu-gutsy.html03:30
questionallthingwell i type sudo and i can do it nicely but i want to actually be a root user just so i can dig further03:31
questionallthingmore for self exploration then anything03:31
nrossinNow, I never really use different consoles, but is there a benefit to running time consuming terminal commands in a separate console?03:31
Johnny_5questionallthing: go to a terminal type: sudo passwd root03:31
nickrudquestionallthing: sudo -i03:31
Pici!noroot | Johnny_503:31
ubotuJohnny_5: We don't support a root password so don't suggest one unless you are going to be here 24/7 to help someone who has problems as a result of having one, many thanks ;-)03:31

Dr_willisneopsyche,  the mythubuntu package makes it very easy to get going. :)03:54
nickrudbosanac: will you listen for one moment:  the scrollback buffer, what you see when you scroll back to the stuff that runs off the terminal to the top, only exists for that one terminal. You close the terminal, it's gone.03:54
neopsycheDr_willis: i installed myth tv and i dont know what the *#$)(*)#(* (insert preferred swear word here) is going on03:54

Dr_willisneopsyche,  you may want to go read some of the mythty/mythbuntu docs/guides then - they are decently well done.   I dont even have a tv tuner card installed any more to test this thing once it does compile04:06

neopsycheDr_Willis: wheres the first place to start to compile from source?04:19
broken__Can someone take a look at this, http://pastebin.ca/897023 what does that look like?04:20
Dr_willisneopsyche,  make a directory.. put the source in there. uncompress it..  read its readme/install docs.. and of course You should be installing the various -dev packages...  (ive think ive said about 10 min ago what i was installing) :) you may have to install quite a few things to get the thing tocompile.04:20
Dr_willisneopsyche,  for a start install the 'build-essential' package04:21
bazhangbroken__: I cant access that site--perhaps you could paste it elsewhere or describe the problem here04:21
nickrudbroken__: a wine app that couldn't run because your direct rendering is broken04:21
Dr_willisneopsyche,  for a start i had to do a  sudo apt-get install kde-devel  qt3-dev-tools  qt3-apps-dev04:21
broken__I see, I'm guessing thats fglrx's fault.04:21
nickrudbroken__: if you have xserver-xgl running that would cause it04:22
lnknpk04neopsyche, when you unpack the source alot of times there's a file in there called 'readme' or something along those lines.  alot of times it tells you step by step how to compile04:22
seacatneopsyche, First, download the tarball;   apt-get source <package.name.here>04:23
Dr_willisseacat, its not in the repos at all. :)04:23
Dr_willisi did a   wget http://download.berlios.de/kalva/kalva-0.8.90.tar.bz204:23
dragonis there a way i can update ubuntu from dapper drake to gutsy through the repos?04:23
Jack_Sparrowbroken__: What video card are you working with04:23
seacatDr_willis, neopsyche Download it from where ever;  tar -zxvf tarball.tgz  ; configure ; make ; sudo make install04:24
nickrudDr_willis: I've been thinking, with that many dev packages installed you oughta spend a couple hours learning to make a deb with cdbs ;)04:24
bazhangdragon: yes but it is a long process--you could wait until april and go directly from dapper to hardy04:24
seacatDr_willis, neopsyche Download it from where ever;  tar -zxvf tarball.tgz ; cd tarball/ ; less README ; less INSTALL ; configure ; make ; sudo make install04:24

_Oz_there are just a few behaviors I'd like to change and don't know how exactly04:41
_Oz_in windows I could say one monitor was primary over the other04:41
_Oz_in ubuntu, I don't see a way to do that...  I have nvidia x-server which lets me configure some things but not that.04:42
badkittymjw-: Now they have cards with 16 heads and stuff eh?04:42
badkitty_Oz_: For sure there is a way, I just don't know off hand..04:42
mjw-badkitty so I've heard, i'm not sure why'd you use them otherwise anymore. time has left them behind, and the binary-only linux drivers are just pretty pathetic04:42
VadiHow can I check what version of nVidia drivers have I got?04:42
neopsychenickrud: hehe.. the cdrom drive wants to eat my gibbon :-D04:43
dragonso do i skip edgy eft? since it wont let me update to it claming i got the latest updates?04:43
seacatneopsyche,  sudo apt-get install  build-essential  g++-4.104:43
badkittymjw-: I just stay with nvidia myself.. Do I really need 16 monitors?04:43
neopsycheseacat: i should do that instaead of installing from the gibbon biscuit?04:43
kilgariffVadi:  nvidia-settings04:43
soldats_Oz_: try opening an app with the terminal and force it to display 0:2 or 0:1 i dont remember if that refers to dual monitors. best way is to play around.04:43
mjw-badkitty if I had to do it again, I'd just get a 24 inch LCD singlehead. but it was more cost effective to do two 17" LCDs dualhead in 200304:44
IcemanV9badkitty: unless you'll give a cool presentation using 16 monitors ;)04:44
nickrudseacat: build essential brings in gcc, g++ , libc6-dev , make other stuff04:44
Vadikilgariff: thanks dude04:44
obionehey guys []04:44
seacatnickrud, Thank you.  I stand corrected.04:44
seacatneopsyche,  sudo apt-get install  build-essential04:44
badkittyIcemanV9: I once saw a video of some guys playing quake on a 16 monitors using a soap mouse04:44
nickrudseacat: saves time :)04:44
neopsycheseacat: what does g++4.1 do?04:44
mjw-badkitty I would never get another matrox card though for general use. the linux drivers are quite inferior.04:45
seacatneopsyche, It's the compiler.04:45
neopsycheseacat: it asked me for my cd04:45
neopsycheseacat: so i put it in and now its reading04:45
seacatneopsyche, But just do sudo apt-get build.essential04:45
neopsycheseacat: its intalling04:45
neopsychei think04:45
neopsyche* installing04:45
badkittymjw-: I can only imagine04:45
dragonhow come i cant update my ubuntu ver when i use the command gksu "update-manager -c"04:46
neopsycheseacat: installing build essential from cd04:46
mjw-badkitty ie the OpenGL implementation is basically broken, so no compiz-fusion fun04:46
neopsycheseacat: but not that other thingy you asked me to add04:46
Vadikilgariff: one more thing.. nvidia settings say I got 100.14.19. Website says latest 169.07 is latest.. is the gutsy stock driver really old or?04:46
seacatneopsyche, It doesn't matter04:47
StarseedDamn, don't know what happened, everythings falling apart in ubuntu .. Skype stopped working , xine stopped working , flash crashes .. yikes..04:47
soldatsdragon: try gksudo update-manager -c04:47
kilgariffVadi:  I'm not sure, lemme check04:47
soldatsit opens the gui for updating04:47
soldatsdragon: or in terminal try sudo apt-get update04:48
Dr_willisneopsyche,  this MIGHT work --> http://rapidshare.com/files/90314282/kalva_0.8.90-1_i386.deb.html04:48
neopsycheDr_willis: thanks04:49
Dr_willisneopsyche,  and if it blows up your pc.. well --- too bad. :P04:49
neopsycheDr_willis: but could you possibly download that and email it to me .. as i dont have rapidshare account and free option never works for me04:49
neopsycheDr_willis: oh04:49
dragon ok now what?04:49
Starseedguess I'm going to give it a second go , re-install04:49
robogeekis anybody familiar with hald on hardy?04:49
neopsycheDr_willis: i think i already downloaded that04:49
Dr_willisYou dont need an account to get things..04:49
ogrehey guys, I was just wondering how to stop virtualbox from  grabbing my mouse? it says "Right Ctrl" what the heck is right?04:49
seacatneopsyche, Is this machine not online?04:49
neopsycheseacat: its installed now04:49
neopsycheseacat: this machine is online04:49
neopsycheseacat: my machine?04:50
Vadiogre: it's the ctrl key that's on your right04:50
bazhangneopsyche: hahaha04:50
IcemanV9ogre: your right ctrl key04:50
seacatneopsyche, Good.04:50
Vadiogre: there are 2 ctrl keys, one on the left side, one on the right side. Press the right ctrl04:50
=== slaytani1 is now known as slaytanic
ogreVadi:  ahahahaha thanks ;P04:50
kilgariffVadi:  I've never noticed that before.  I'm downloading the driver from the nvidia site just to check04:50
Dr_willisIf thers some other site better then rapidshare - let me know. :)04:50
neopsychebazhang: what you laughing at!??04:50
Vadiogre: and install the virtualbox addons04:50
neopsyche lol04:50
Dr_willisi rarely use them04:50
badkittyseacat ...Im trying to picture what that would look like .. using a seahorse as a reference of how to translate regular animals to those that live underwater04:50
Vadikilgariff: Ok, thanks.04:50
neopsycheseacat: cool.. what now?04:50
ogreVadi:  whats the name of the package?04:50
neopsycheseacat: Setting up build-essential (11.3ubuntu1) ...04:51
Vadiogre: it's not a package. In the virtualbox vm window, click on 'devices', and 'install virtualbox addons'04:51
Vadiogre: if your wm is windows, it'll start an installer, if linux, open up a folder, and you need to run the .run file04:51
nickrudneopsyche: an intermediate step:   system->admin->software sources , make sure the first four items on the first tab are enabled, and the cdrom is disabled. On the Updates tab, make sure security and updates are enabled04:52
dragonok i did the try sudo apt-get update04:52
dragonwhats next to do?04:52
ogreVadi:  thanks04:52
nickrudneopsyche: that will allow you to not use the cd, and make sure you have the latest safest versions of ubuntu software04:52
IcemanV9dragon: sudo apt-get safe-upgrade04:52
neopsychenickrud: done.04:53
neopsychenickrud: whats next?04:53
nickrudneopsyche: continue with seacat04:53

dragonthats what it told me04:53
acecaseI have a fresh install and my mouse is lagging like crazy. CPU/RAM usage is minimal and the system is very responsive but the mouse lag is bad. I can't seem to find anything useful in the forums or with google this time.04:53
neopsycheseacat: whats next?04:53
IcemanV9dragon: what version of ubuntu?04:53
gandhiicurious as to how and who updates the files in the repositories?   Is there a policy in how often they are updated?04:53
dragondapper drake i did the sudo apt get update thing and it seemed to work but didnt change anything04:54
seacatneopsyche, ./configure   ;   make   ;    make install04:54
IcemanV9dragon: ah. then use sudo apt-get upgrade04:54
Vadigandhii: normal packages are updated with the new ubuntu release. Security patches as soon as needed are applied though04:54
seacatneopsyche, The system is fully updated, right?04:54
kilgariffacecase:  Could it just be miconfigured in preferences->mouse?04:54
Vadigandhii: If you'd like the latest programs, I'd recommend getdeb.net.04:54
nickrudgandhii: for main, there's a security team that applies known security fixes. For universe and mulitiverse, it's catch as catch can. They're working on building a good team for that, though04:54
acecaseHelvasca in the mouse settings? I have played with all those settings.04:54
seacatneopsyche, If not,   sudo apt-get update04:55
dragonits telling me bash: try: command not found04:55
neopsycheseacat: now its giving a bunch of other stuff04:55
gandhiiah...   so you mean apps like wine or blender won't be updated till the next April?04:55
dragonopps lol04:55
kilgariffVadi: brb, installing new driver04:55
acecasekilgariff If I slide the speed up in mouse settings it just makes it unusable because it still lags so it looks like it teleports from one side to another :)04:55
IcemanV9dragon: misspelling?04:55
Vadikilgariff: k04:55
neopsycheseacat: checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X libraries. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!04:55
kilgariffacecase: awesome :)04:56
nickrudgandhii: precisely. The philosophy is don't add new bugs to a release,04:56
neopsycheseacat: checking for shl_unload in -ldld... no04:56
seacatneopsyche, sudo apt-get update04:56
neopsycheseacat: do i need to04:56
pajamiangandhii: if you want to keep wine updated to the latest release then just add the winehq repository.04:57
marx2k_why WHY WHY does linux not have a decent newsgroup binaries downloader :(04:57
gandhiibut I noticed that the update to OpenOffice was reflected in the repositories fairly quickly though..04:57
dragonodd it does the sudo apt-get update just fine but then when i  do  sudo apt-get safe-upgrade it says04:57
nickrudgandhii: however, gutsy-updates will sometimes get new versions, as does backports and proposed. I personally don't use proposed and backports because they often add new bugs.04:57
dragonE: Invalid operation safe-upgrade04:57
nickruddragon: someone was confusing a command for another front end to apt04:57
IcemanV9dragon: not on dapper04:58
nickrudgandhii: system->admin->software sources , updates tab04:58

Genius16marx2k_ ive wondered myself, you'd think one would be plastered up everywhere? i havent looked very hard though. =04:58
nickruddragon: safe-upgrade is used with aptitude, a front end that's not recommended for use with ubuntu04:59
neopsycheseacat: does that matter?04:59
gandhiioh right..  I get ya04:59
IcemanV9dragon: if you want to update your dapper, then type sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade; sudo apt-get autoclean04:59
factotumaptitude is a front end for apt-get?04:59
GemmersI'm considering putting ubuntu on my laptop but I have concerns about power management and battery life04:59
gandhiifilled up one of the many many holes in my linux knowledge04:59
nickrudfactotum: no, apt-get and aptitude are front ends for apt, as is synaptic05:00

ubotuGemmers: Laptop support information can be found on http://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportMachinesLaptops - http://www.linux-laptop.net/ - http://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam - http://tuxmobil.org05:00
nowimprovedi get this error when i try to burn a cd Cd record has no permission to open device"05:00
badkittycleit0n: sudo apt-get install skype (after you enable the medibuntu repo)05:00
GemmersI've had a look around some Docs and my laptop shows partial support05:00
seacatneopsyche,  lsb_release -a05:00
GemmersI've currently got 512MB ram and a 1.5GHz processor so that should be fine right?05:00
* IcemanV9 personally uses aptitude for everything05:01
seacatneopsyche, What does it say?05:01
GemmersThe main concern is with regards to power saving and management05:01
mjw-Gemmers I installed xubuntu on an old dell latitude c510, pretty much all the power management stuff worked fine, except screen savers don't work on it (but blanking does)05:01
dragonis that it?05:01
VadiGemmers: yeah. That's what I got too.05:01
nickrudnowimproved: you should be in the cdrom group, try typing   groups  in a terminal , see if it's listed05:01
VadiGemmers: Same specs I mean05:01
badkittyGemmers: Thats fine for linux yah.. what are you trying to do?05:01
GemmersThat's cool05:01
neopsycheseacat: Release:        7.1005:01
neopsycheCodename:       gutsy05:01
mjw-Gemmers I run xubuntu on a 1GHz celeron with 256MB, works great. regular ubuntu should be fine on that05:01
cleit0nbadkitty: medibuntu?05:01
IcemanV9dragon: yea05:01
GemmersCheap easy as computing, no vista no windows05:01
dragonhow can i tell if it worked?05:02
GemmersI love the idea of how it's apparently much more easier to use ubuntu, so much so I'm trying to get my mum to use my laptop05:02
GemmersAnd viruses shall not be an issue05:02
z-dogguys when i compile my dmfe driver i get two errors05:02
neopsycheseacat: any idea?05:02
nickrudIcemanV9: so did I, but one of the actual canonical support guys told me the upgrade 'uber-geeks' are actively pushing apt-get over aptitude, some changes coming down the pike that won't make it to aptitude real fast05:02
Peddyhas anyone had any luck with the Pidgin-Rhythmbox plugin?05:02
IcemanV9dragon: you'll see in the terminal when you issued the command05:02

ubotucleit0n: medibuntu is a repository of packages that cannot be included into the Ubuntu distribution for legal reasons - See http://www.medibuntu.org05:03
IcemanV9nickrud: it's good to know ... hm05:03
GemmersBut do you use ubuntu on a laptop, I was worried that you need special software to save battery life05:03
the_alamoi am having trouble getting to irc.gnome.org or irc.gimp.org. is anyone else having this problem?05:03
neopsycheseacat: wht do you need to know the release for?05:03
neopsycheseacat: is there an issue with that release?05:03
mjw-Gemmers no most any laptops from recent years will work fine out of the box, check the links ubotu gave you, someone may have tested your laptop specifically at some point05:04
nowimprovednickrud, it is05:04
IcemanV9nickrud: will it backport to older version (as far as dapper) ??05:04
neopsycheseacat: what do i need to do ?05:04
GemmersIt has been tested but are there any tips to optimise battery life05:04
GemmersAre there settings in ubuntu I can use?05:04
nickrudIcemanV9: unlikely, it's stuff for hardy05:04
neopsycheseacat: is there an issue installing certain programs.. should i install them manually?05:04
GemmersA hibernate setting perhaps?05:04
mjw-Gemmers turn screen brightness down, turn timers for screen blanking down, etc.05:04
IcemanV9nickrud: ok. i'll test it out in hardy then. thks.05:05
Gemmersscreen blanking?05:05
VadiGemmers: install powertop - it's on getdeb.net05:05
pawanany good paint program05:05
neopsycheseacat: hello?05:05

VadiGemmers: then type 'sudo powertop' in the terminal. It'll do a bunch of power-saving suggestions.05:05
neopsychepawan: paint program for what?05:05
thug_lifeyou can't /ctcp with xchat ?05:06
chubs730__pawan: xpaint05:06
Dr_willisive noticed some of the powertop 'suggestions' dont apply to all setups.05:06
pajamianthug_life: I can ctcp just fine05:06
thug_lifeWith x-chat gnome?05:06
mjw-thug_life I know ctcp doesn't work with pidgin, but I thought it worked with xchat05:06
dragoni dont see where it supose to of updated it05:06
pajamianthug_life: regular x-chat, I never liked the xchat-gnome interface.05:06
thug_lifeI'll try the reg version05:07

seacatneopsyche, You need to solve the GPG error problem.05:08

doverhey guys, im having a problem installing ubuntu for the first time05:09
nickrudneopsyche: you can ignore that error though05:09
badkittydover: errors?05:09
doveri downloaded both discs but i got no luck with either05:10
neopsychenickrud: yeah.. just to install the studio desktop .. but not much else05:10
doverbasically i dont even get to the installation point05:10
neopsychenickrud: yeah i thought so05:10
badkittydover: Is the disc not booting or what is happenning?05:10
neopsychenickrud: does that mean i can continue without gpg issue05:10
pawanany other05:10
neopsycheseacat: nickrud says its no prob05:10
nickrudneopsyche: disable it if you don't plan on using it again. You will still keep the packages you have installed.05:10
bazhang!find paint05:10

kercyrIf you're suggesting a wireless adapter to someone who runs 7.10, what would you suggest?  Cheaper the better.... 802.11g...05:11
IcemanV9dover: hardy?05:11
pajamiandover: restart and run the memcheck05:11
badkittydover: What about the regular disc what happens with that?05:11
neopsycheseacat: ok05:11
thug_lifehas anyone got the creative zen working on 7.10?05:11
seacat!GPG | neopsyche05:11
ubotuneopsyche: gpg is the GNU Privacy Guard.  See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GnuPrivacyGuardHowto and class #8 on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ClassroomTranscripts05:11
neopsycheseacat: i think i have solved the prob05:11
doverwell, i see the title screen i guess, with the orange bar at the bottom, looks like its loading...05:11
neopsycheseacat: but its fine on the default repos so why do i need to fix gpg i have disabled the offending repos05:12
doverthen at some point the orange bar stops moving and my screen gets kinda weird05:12
doverlike the images screw up05:12
mjw-dover what kind of graphics card do you have05:12
doverand it just stays that way05:12
seacatneopsyche, sudo apt-get update05:12
badkittydover: Ok so it starts to boot ... thats nvidia?05:12
badkittydover: that card should be fine05:12
badkittydover: How long do you wait before you give up on it?05:13
mouseboyxdover, there are problems sometimes05:13
dovera few minutes05:13
mouseboyxsometimes you have to use the nvidia-glx instead of nvidia-glx-new and vice versa05:13
badkittydover: Is your system fast or slow? The liveCD can take a while to load sometimes.. I've noticed it can be very termpermental05:13
doverits a 2.6 P405:14
pajamiandover: I highly suspect you have bad RAM on your computer, I would recommend you run memcheck86 from the boot menu of either CD.05:14
doverlike, 4 years old maybe05:14
nuffini wish my nvidia card was supported.   have to use the nv driver.05:14
cyphaseWhat does everyone think about having the Add/Remove Programs dialog only show one of each type of app by default? It could be a simple checkbox to show the rest. So, instead of showing 5 different browsers, it would only have firefox, or instead of 5 different feed readers, it would only have one (e.g. Liferea)05:14
Dr_willisneopsyche,  been trying other upload sites -> http://www.load.to/?d=2FDgvRKuti        is that same file. :)05:14
neopsychenot sure.05:14
badkittydover: Running a memcheck wouldn't hurt..05:15
doverweird that windows will install even with bad ram lol05:15
seacatnuffin, The nv driver is the supported driver module for Nvidia cards.05:15
Dr_willisdover,  with bad ram and windows.. you just notice it crashing a little bit more. :)05:15
neopsycheDr_willis: yes05:15
dragondo i have to reboot for the update to show?05:15
badkittydover: Well I doubt it is bad ram.. youd have bigger problems .. like nothing loading at all..05:15
seacatnuffin, In other words, your card is supported.05:16
neopsycheDr_willis: the same05:16
mjw-dover have you tried to boot the graphical livecd in safe graphics mode?05:16
pajamiandover: it may not be bad RAM but that's the first thing I'd check.  It's very unlikely to be a problem with graphics card compatibility if the text based install on the alternate install CD fails.05:16
doversame thing happens05:16
neopsycheseacat: ok so now config right?05:16
nuffinseacat the nv is the generic and doesn't support dirrect acceleration or 3d05:16

ubotunuffin: To install the Ati/NVidia drivers for your video card, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto05:17
neopsycheseacat: ok.. now?05:17
neopsycheseacat: some of them still say no.05:17
nuffinseacat all i'm saying is that nv supports the family not any one card.  that's all.05:17
jetscreamerdover: the autodetection sucks for nvidia05:17
mjw-dover: pajamian has a point. the text installer should not be failing even if it was a card issue. That's likely a sign of hardware problems or some really bizarre piece of hardware you have05:17
seacatnuffin, Install missing dependencies05:17

seacatneopsyche, let it finish.05:21
nuffinjetscreamer i'll look but they dropped support for my card years ago05:22
Joe__is there another channel that deals specifically with wireless or hp issues?05:22
neetoI asked this in #apache, but no one answered, so I'm gonna try my luck here: does anyone know, using apache, how you tell it to list hidden directories (directories that start with dots) over HTTP?05:22
neopsycheseacat: can i do this update with synaptic too?05:22
seacatneopsyche, Yes05:22
Hisotaso can anyone help me set up my cdrom in fstab and mtab?05:23
neopsycheseacat: rr http://repository.akirad.net akirad-gutsy/main Translation-en_ZA05:23
neopsyche  Connection failed05:23
Dr_willisHisotaso,  you dont mess with mtab :)05:23
pajamianneeto: I think it's a setting in httpd.conf ... there's a setting that tells it what files *not* to list and somethign like .* is included in that.05:24
Dr_willisHisotaso,  my entry in fstab --> /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0 005:24
squidlydoes anyone know of a way to convert a 32bit ubutnu install to a 64bit install?05:24
neetopajamian: I'll look at it05:24
nickrudsquidly: reinstall05:24
squidlynickrud: that's the only way.. blast.05:24
Hisotasothanks willis05:24
nuffinjetscreamer not listed there.    but thanks for the try.05:25
squidlywhat about installing over my current install?05:25
jetscreamernuffin: not listed on which05:25
Hisotasoive been playin with fstab and mtab because im having issues with a multi disc install in cedega05:25
jetscreamerthe xorg or nvidia05:25
nickrudsquidly: that's what I did.05:25
seacatneopsyche,  You need to remove or comment out that repo05:25
pajamiansquidly: I went the other way (64 bit to 32 bit) and the only solution I found was to install from scratch.05:25
nickrudsquidly: if you do a reinstall, think about a separate home partition if you haven't already. Makes reinstalls, or running more than one version  painless05:26
squidlypajamian: that I can understand.05:26
Hisotasocan anyone share their cdrom line out of mtab please?05:26
jetscreamernuffin: exactly which card05:26
GemmersDoes anyone know where I can find the ubuntu 7.10 ccd label05:26
squidlynickrud: yea the thing I'm more worried about is my sqldb's and my mythtv directories05:26
nuffinjetscreamer the first URL  the second lists nv as supporting the familey05:26
squidlythe rest of it I can deal with05:26
GemmersI want to use lightscribe for the first (and probably for the only time)05:26
CreationistDoes anyone know how I can apply a custom album art cover to an entire album of .MP3 files?  Amarok only lets you use Amazon or custom pictures for individual files.05:27
jetscreamernuffin: if nv supports it, the nvidia driver supports it also05:27
nuffinjetscreamer RIVA128 agp05:27
jetscreamerah ok maybe not05:27
nickrudsquidly: redirect them to /home/mythtv and /home/databases  on the next install  ;)05:27
dmanCreationist: by default Amarok applies the album art to all songs in that album...05:27
mjw-nuffin maybe it's time for a video card upgrade :)05:27
alexkreuzcan anyone tell me how i mount smbfs drives on the desktop as icons?05:27
neopsycheseacat: done now05:27
neetopajamian: since I'm not running redhat, httpd.conf means nothing, but in apache2.conf there was a setting that would hide .ht* files, but not anything else starting with a dot... :/05:27
squidlynickrud: well the myth dirs are on different disks. they pull a lot of data. I was more worried about my setup's for the and db files05:27
seacatneopsyche, sudo apt-get update05:28
neopsycheseacat: done05:28
Creationistdman: It only does that if you use Amazon to find the art.  If you want to set a custom cover, you can only do that one file at a time.05:28
neopsycheseacat: eading package lists... Done05:28
squidlyI wonder if I could just change my deb.conf and apt-get update05:28
nuffinjetscreamer and no one has been able to provide any indication that my card has been supported sense X11R605:28
berenddoes anyone have saviour05:28
nickrudsquidly: I'm not familiar with mythtv and it's dbs, but I'm sure it's possible to get a safe backup05:28
dmanCreationist: I've done it with a custom cover. it was for an album w/ 500 songs. all have it now.05:28
pajamianneeto: sorry, I actually run centos for my servers (and use ubuntu as the desktop) I just figured the conf file was named the same, I'll see if I can find the directive, though...05:28
neopsycheseacat: trying to configure now05:28
neetopajamian: no worries man, I was just letting you know05:29
squidlynickrud: yea. I was much more looking for an inplcae upgrade05:29
Creationistdman:  How did you do that?  I can't change the art when I have more than one file selected.05:29
squidlyOk, I guess I'll do it on a vmware install and then write up a howto :D05:29
IcemanV9ever since hoary, there is no guided partitioning for a separate /home partition :-/ I wonder why it was left out?05:29
pajamianneeto: sure, no problem, the filename will be different but the content will be largely the same.05:29
neopsycheseacat: still cant find x-libraries path and some of the parts say 'no'05:29
neetopajamian: ok05:29
dmanCreationist: the same way as usual. select one track and change its album art. it should automatically apply to allt he others05:29
squidlypajamian: may I ask why you went from 64 back to 32 bit?05:29
nuffinjetscreamer but like i said, thanks for the attempt.  you would have nailed it if it was supported  ;/05:30
Creationistdman: Yeah, I would have assumed so too... but it's only applying it to that one file, not the entire album.05:30
jetscreamernuffin: looks like you get to use nv and that's it05:30
dmanCreationist: odd. is the album naem the same?05:30
the_alamois GimpNet broken?  i want to ask #epiphany a question but i can't connect.  so either the server is down or there is something wrong with my computer05:30
nuffinjetscreamer see above ^  :)05:30
lanzellothanyone ever heard of kernel update making wireless not work?05:31
Onyxcrossover office is a beautiful thing.05:31
neopsycheseacat: ?05:31
Creationistdman: yes, identical.... all the songs are listed under the same album in Amarok too05:31
Onyxlanzelloth: Yes.05:31
pajamiansquidly: it was fiesty at the time, but I found lots of problems with 64 bit on the desktop, mainly having to do with things such as flash and java being a pita to get working, plus not being able to use w32codecs for videos, etc.05:31
seacatneopsyche, fully updated now?05:31
neopsycheseacat: do i need to reconfigure the x path:/05:31
jetscreameryeah.. (messy)  nv says it supports your gpu nuffin . are you saying it doesn't?05:31
neopsycheseacat: yes updated05:31
lanzellothOnyx: there was a kernel update a couple days ago?05:31
dmanCreationist: that is weird...05:31
squidlypajamian: ahh okies.. yea this will be a backend server. no gui stuff needed ;)05:31
Onyxlanzelloth: In Ubuntu?  Yeah, I think so, but I don't use Ubuntu's kernel.  I build my own.05:31
nuffinjetscreamer no. i'm not.  i'm saying it supports it almost as well as vesa does.05:32
alexkreuzcan anyone tell me how i mount smbfs drives on the desktop as icons?05:32
dmanCreationist: maybe you messing with it before screwed something up . your solution might just be to do it manually fo that album.05:32
seacatneopsyche, ./configure05:32
pajamiansquidly: ahhh, ok, I do run some centos servers as 64 bit and I have no problems with that.  My feelings is that 64 bit is good for the server but not for the desktop.05:32
nuffinwhich means no hardware accel. jetscreamer05:32
seacatneopsyche, What package are you trying to install?  What is the name of the package?05:32
mjw-nuffin the riva128 is just an old card. heck, how much memory does the one you have even possess? A lot of acceleration-type stuff will crap out if too little memory is present05:32
squidlypajamian: not until some of the more commanly used things are moved to 64bit like java and flash05:32
jetscreamernuffin: you might get better performance running 16 bit instead of 32 (that thing does 32 eh?)  yeah no 3d05:32
Genius16alexkreuz: do you have the drives mounted somewhere with samba already?05:32
pajamiansquidly: exactly05:33
squidlyI actually run my main desktop as a multilib 64bit gentoo install05:33
alexkreuzyes i got that part already05:33
neopsycheseacat: Kalva05:33
ERRor_studenthelp me05:33
squidlybut for servers I like not having to deal with a lot of compileing05:33
ERRor_studenti have a webcam suyin, but not detect on feisty05:33
lanzellothOnyx: oh.. now the applet thing can detect wireless networks but can't join into one, you think this is related to the kernel update?05:33
Genius16alexkreus: if you're running gnome you could always do a symbolic link to the desktop.05:33
lanzellothOnyx: it was working fine a couple days ago05:33
mjw-nuffin switching to a depth of 16bpp helped fix rendering issues for me with an old ATI Radeon Mobility chipset. There was too little video memory for acceleration at 24/32bpp05:33
pajamiansquidly: I tried that, but I found that the pain of getting 32 bit things to work on a setup like that was not outweighed by the performance differences of 64 bit vs 32 bit.  I just run 32 bit now and everything works painlessly.05:34
dragonok doing that update where i am supose to update to edgy eft did nothing im still on dapper drake05:34
nuffinmjw- it's a "real" agp interface and 32m ram i think...05:34
z-doghow do you fix the two 'nh' errors in the dmfe driver file05:34
Onyxlanzelloth: You probably just need to do a network encryption configuration again.  You probably lost the keys when you did the kernel update would be my guess.05:34
squidlypajamian: for me it works well with gentoo. but then everything is pretty much compiled as 64bit05:34
dmanCreationist: i just did it to experiment. worked fine.05:34
mjw-nuffin the wiki page says the riva128 it came with 4-8mb05:34
Genius16alexkreus: ln -s /path/to/samba/mount /home/$USERNAME/Desktop/WhateverFolderName05:35
Creationistdman: Well, that's the beauty of Linux... just because it works for 50 other people, doesn't mean it will for the other 50 ;)05:35
bazhangCreationist: indeed no problems here either05:35
pajamiansquidly: yes, I can see that it would work better with gentoo sinc eyou can control the compilation of everything.05:35
alexkreuzGenius16 let me try that05:35
nuffinmjw- the pci does,  but the agp is higher05:35
squidlypajamian: yep. I once I get my server in my noc at work, I will help with developmenting and making 64bit packages for ubuntu05:35
squidlyI love the distro. its like debian only newer :D05:36
* squidly ducks05:36
neopsycheseacat: any ideas?05:36
dmanCreationist: true enough. do yuo have an album art image in the folder. or more than one?05:36
Creationist...because I certainly am being forced to do each file individually05:36
seacatneopsyche, DOwnload the .deb from  http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=4524&release_id=1130705:36
mjw-nuffin try bumping the depth down to 16 in your xorg.conf, it might help05:36
pajamiansquidly: yep, the 64 bit packaging in ubuntu is largely good, though.  The main problems is with proprietary stuff that you can't get source code on.05:36
ubudany software that can play different code of dvd?05:36
Creationistdman: No, I have the album art images in separate folders and I'm trying to apply them to the albums in my collection.... not working.05:36
squidlypajamian: very true. that is mostly were the world would be needed05:36
Genius16ubud: different code of dvd?05:36
seacatneopsyche,  dpkg -i kalva_0.8.90-1_i386.deb05:37
dmanCreationist: i did put the album art in the same folder as the files. maybe that helps?05:37
Genius16ubud: vlc i believe05:37
jetscreamernuffin: what pci id does lspci | grep -i nvidia  return?05:37
pajamianneeto: IndexIgnore05:37
wersin terms of quality, is openwengo better than skype?05:37
CreationistWhy the hell doesn't Amarok have the option to "Set custom cover" when right-clicking an album... it offers to fetch the cover from Amazon, but you don't have the option to choose your own?05:37
neopsycheseacat: what about it?05:37
neetopajamian: in apache2.conf?05:37
lanzellothOnyx: that's not it, i tried that05:37
neopsycheseacat: i already downloaded that package05:37
nuffinmjw- no can do.  it does 24,15,8,...  no 16 avalable05:37
Creationistdman: Do you have to name it something specific?05:37
pajamianneeto: in one of the .conf files somewhere05:37
alexkreuzGenius16, thanks if nothing else this should be fine, but is there a way to mount it so that it actually shows up as a real folder and doesn't show up as a deletable shortcut?05:37
Genius16alexkreus: work for you?05:37
diiii want to preserve a livecd's contents after i've booted. does anyone know how i could do that? i got it to work with aufs, but ubuntu 7.10 has unionfs and the code i had working with debian fails (even though it mounts without errors on ubuntu /w unionfs)  mount -t unionfs -o dirs=/mnt/sda1:/mnt/cdrom/=ro none /05:37
seacatneopsyche,  http://prdownload.berlios.de/kalva/kalva_0.8.90-1_i386.deb05:37

pajamianneeto: mine has this: IndexIgnore .??* *~ *# HEADER* README* RCS CVS *,v *,t05:38
dmanCreationist: not that i know of. mine was just random letters.05:38
Creationistdman: I want the art to be embedded in the MP3, though, so when I tranfer it to my mp3 player, it works well.05:38
squidlypajamian: ubuntu actually saved my old boss several times from him self :D05:38
pajamianneeto: if you were to take out the .??* then it would list hidden files and directories05:38
jetscreamernuffin: i mean gpu model, not pciid05:38
alexkreuzlet me elaborate, while this gives me quick access, from the file manager it still doesn't show up as a "Mapped Drive"05:38
Genius16alexkreus: i know there is in KDE but im not so sure in gnome. id assume there is a similar way to, but im only familiar with KDE05:38
alexkreuzi see thanks for the help though05:38
italyswhy isn't alsaconf included with edgy even though alsa-utils is installed?05:38
alexkreuzi appreciate it05:38
neopsycheseacat: dpkg error cannot acccess archive05:38
alexkreuzthis is good enough for now05:38
Creationistdman: Hmm... even fetching a cover from Amazon doesn't apply it to the entire album.05:38
jetscreameralsaconf is in alsa0utils05:38
lanzellothCreationist: amarok?05:39
en3r0anyone here use the boradcom43xx wireless card?05:39
italysi understand that05:39
neopsycheseacat: what do you want me to do with that package?05:39
bazhangis edgy still supported even?05:39
Creationistlanzelloth: Yeah05:39
dmanCreationist: i'm not sure if Amarok does that. i think so, tho. You should try #amarok for experts05:39
pajamiansquidly: cool, I have only been using ubuntu since feisty, but I've found it to be that good that I'm now recommending it and installing it on friends computers, etc.05:39
italysalsaconf doesn't exist05:39
jetscreamerhey you're not dman the famous mapper are you05:39
CreationistMaybe I'll stop using amarok... I always have problems with it.05:39
dmanjetscreamer: not that i know of. who is he?05:39

squidlypajamian: same here. I started with 6.02 (i think) and have been useing it ever since.05:39

bobbydpajamian: do you know where that is?05:49
squidlybobbyd: sorry.05:49
seacatneopsyche, I don't know.05:49
mjw-nuffin you'll want to find this sort of entry: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/55313/05:49
pajamianbobbyd: let me look, one min ...05:49
Khisanthadorablepuppy: you were right below Genius16's response :)05:49
Genius16luckyshot: the gnome version is pretty much the same05:49
nuffinmjw- i guess you wanted this http://ubuntu.pastebin.us/?show=d5d6c89a9  ?05:49
luckyshotGenius16, thanks ill try it out05:49
pajamianbobbyd: Places menu05:49
neopsycheseacat: why would i need to add a repo to get the old version .. is it possible to get the old version running along side the new version?05:50
Genius16neopsyche: thats crazy talks!05:50
squidlyoh shit.. it's amost midnight. ive gotta get ready to head to my gf's place05:50
Genius16neopsyche: dont listen to me... id suggest you use magic.05:50
mjw-nuffin well try 15bpp is my best suggestion. that card may not even be able to use all 32mb for a framebuffer05:50
squidlyGenius16: lol. I've done that when I needed to do some pen tesing05:50
lnknpk04hey seacat, I finished booting my box with the live cd (mine was only booting to a blank screen with a cursor).  I can access all of my files, but I had a hunch based on my reading what the problem could be.05:51
RyanPriorI've got an NTFS external hard drive. Some folders cannot be deleted, always resulting in I/O errors. Is there some way I can force the folders to be deleted? If the drive has errors, is there some way I can fix them?05:51
neopsycheGenius16: er.. right05:51
Peddycan somebody *please* help me with screen refresh rates05:51
Genius16squidly: i know its me... but what? im lost:(\05:51
neopsycheseacat: thanks for the help05:51
nuffinmjw- ok.  but why not use 24 bit colour ?05:51
RyanPrior!patience | Peddy05:51
ubotuPeddy: The people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines05:51
neopsycheseacat: now.. back to the copiling05:51
squidlyGenius16: sorry. I've had multiple versions installed sideby side when I was doing penetration tests. (legal hacking)05:51
lnknpk04with upgrades, if my linux headers were updated, could that have a negative impact on my grub menu.lst?05:51
PeddyRyanPrior: huh?05:51
seacatneopsyche, http://pastebin.ca/89708505:52
neopsycheseacat: how do i fix those issues in compile?05:52
mjw-nuffin because the server may basically be running out of video memory in trying to enable acceleration05:52
Genius16squidly: oh. yeah i was just being a dork.05:52
PeddyI won't say please then :P05:52
nuffinhmm could be i guess.05:52
Peddycan somebody help me with screen refresh rates?05:52
seacatneopsyche, Are you in USA?05:52
squidlyGenius16: lol. over all its usualy a bigger pain then its worth05:52
squidlyPeddy: what about refresh rates?05:52
Genius16squidly: ive had multiple versions of the same program installed a bunch of times too. mostly its like "shit! how do i uninstall this SOB?"05:52
Peddysquidly I can only get mine up to 52 for some reason05:53
squidlyGenius16: rotf. I've been there too.. or my favorate is "oh shit, it linked to the wrong version"05:53
Peddysquidly: I have an LCD monitor connecting with a DVI connection05:53
neopsycheseacat: pastebin doesnt show anyting05:53
neopsycheseacat: no05:53
neopsycheseacat: not in usa05:53
squidlyPeddy: what video driver are you using? what vid card do you have?05:53
Genius16peddy: what videocard and driver you using?05:54
Peddysquidly: I have the nvidia 8800 gts05:54
Peddysquidly: I am using restricted drivers05:54
squidlyPeddy: oh.. sounds like somehting in you xorg.conf is not set write05:54
Peddysquidly: installed through restricted-drivers manager*05:54
Peddysquidly: yeah05:54
Peddysquidly: should I paste it in a pastebin?05:54
seacatHow does one find what repository a package comes from?05:54
squidlyPeddy: one sec05:55
Genius16squidly: you type too fast for me to beat you to it... so im just gonna suggest... magic.05:55
mjw-nuffin what do you get when you do: glxinfo | grep direct05:55
Peddysquidly: sure05:55
squidlyGenius16: lol..05:55
nuffinmjw- was i right about how much ram it has btw ?   cause that's what M$ reports on it.05:55
squidlyPeddy: ok /msg me your Section "Monitor" of your xorg.conf05:55
Genius16seacat: thats an awesome question! i have no idea (other than searching ubuntu's page of packages) and would also like to know the answer!05:55
Frogzoowhere's acroread gone?05:55
squidlyGenius16: its called being on irc WAY to much :)05:55
JohnMM!info acroread | Frogzoo05:56
nuffinmjw- ummm right now.  -root: glxinfo: command not found05:56
ubotufrogzoo: Package acroread does not exist in gutsy05:56
Genius16squidly: yeah. this is like the 4th time in a year ive logged into ubuntu's irc... oh and im like pretty drunk.05:56
squidlyFrogzoo: use xpdf. its works just as well05:56
mjw-nuffin it's split into 16M prefetchable and 16M non-prefetchable....so it is 32M, the way it's segregated like that makes me wonder if it's old enough that some of the memory may be for 3D textures only and can't be used otherwise05:56
squidlyGenius16: perfet time to code then!05:56

luckyshothow do install my 3D video drivers? and how do i know what video drivers i need too?05:57
seacatGenetics, Packages in question:  kdelibs4c2  kdelibs4c2a05:57
Peddysquidly: what just happened?05:57
RyanPriorluckyshot: The Restricted Manager ought to be able to sort out your 3D drivers.05:57
squidlyPeddy: you accidnetly flooded the chan05:57
=== chaky_ is now known as chaky
RyanPriorluckyshot: System -> Administration -> Restricted Manager05:57
squidlypastbin your config05:57

VadiIf I boot off livecd, will I be able to size down my /home and make the root bigger?05:57
nuffinmjw- that might explain why my scrollback buffer is kinda short in console....   makes sense05:57
* Peddy apologises to everyone for being an xchat noob05:57
luckyshotRyanPrior, i am int hat window and my video card is not listed05:57
luckyshotdoes that mean all is good?05:58
squidlyPeddy: heh.. no worries we all were there05:58
jetscreamernuffin: have you 'tried' ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/71.86.04/ ? according to the driver selector thing on nvidia.com, that supports riva128 . that's why i was trying to find out your pci id, to see if it's listed, but...   ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/71.86.04/README/README  (app-a) APPENDIX A05:58
neopsycheseacat: ???05:58
Peddysquidly: ok I'm just gonna use pastebin :P05:58
squidlymouseboyx: I LOVE THAT!!!05:58
Genius16squidly: coding is too much like work to me. unless im programming a crawler to pull pr0n. haha05:58
Peddysquidly: http://pastebin.com/d72a7c2af05:58
RyanPriorPeddy: It's no problem! Welcome. If you do anything out of line, we'll tell you about it and stop crying pretty quick. :-)05:58
squidlymouseboyx: that saved my sanity when I was on hell desk :D05:58
mjw-nuffin you should have glxinfo (well, mesa) installed if you hope to have ANY OpenGL acceleration at all. apt-get install mesa-utils05:58
squidlyPeddy: ok looing now05:58
RyanPriorluckyshot: In that case, it would appear that your video card is not supported.05:59
mjw-nuffin honestly you can pick up, say, a Geforce2MX for pennies used though, I wouldn't expend a lot of effort on such an old card05:59
nuffinmjw- k  but htat will have to be some other time.   i'm not installing x on this particular system.    (several shoes here)05:59
seacatneopsyche,  kdelibs4c2  and  kdelibs4c2a are probably in universe repos05:59
RyanPriorluckyshot: Unless it's an Intel integrated graphics card, in which case you might not need a restricted driver.06:00
italysso uh06:00
italyshow do i get alsaconf installed06:00
Peddysquidly: when I select my monitor and connection in displayconfig-gtk it lets me choose 70hz06:00
luckyshotRyanPrior, im using an iBook G406:00
Peddysquidly: so when I hit ok, it just resets when I try and go back :-\06:00
GemmersI'm back hurrah06:00
GemmersUm I've just downloaded ubuntu desktop version06:01
GemmersThere's no other version for my notebook is there06:01
squidlyPeddy: well your config looks good.06:01
seacatneopsyche, edit /etc/apt/sources.list and uncomment lines that end in universe06:01
neopsycheseacat: whats the repo i need to add (universe) ?06:01
RyanPriorluckyshot: Ah, I don't know much about Mac hardware myself, so that's not useful to me, but it's a good thing to mention whenever you ask for helop.06:01
seacatneopsyche,  I think so06:01
mkquistGemmers: no06:01
nuffinmjw- actually this box had an ati card in it,  that's why it now has my old standby riva  ;/06:01
BlistokHey all. I have a hard drive that's going out that I want to directly clone to a new hard drive. How can I grab a byte-for-byte image of the drive and restore the image to a new one? Can I just cat /dev/drivedevice > driveimage? If so how do I restore it?06:01
luckyshotRyanPrior, okay thanks06:01
seacatneopsyche,  Try it and see,06:01
RyanPriorluckyshot: Good luck. :-)06:01
Peddysquidly: and displayconfig-gtk shows it as 50hz?06:01
squidlywhat does nvidia-settings show?06:01
* Gemmers wipes forehead06:01
pajamianBlistok: not cat, dd06:02
mjw-nuffin Geforce2mx might be the cheapest option that will probably be fairly well supported. ;)06:02
calamaribeen trying to get a wireless adapter working.. got it.. but I had to stop my firewall.  anyone know how to get firestarter to configure so that its settings apply to both eth0 and eth1, not just eth0?06:02
seacatneopsyche, and then:   sudo apt-get install kdelibs4c2  kdelibs4c2a06:02
Peddysquidly: I mean its rather pointless buying a gfx card like that if you can only get like 40fps ^^06:02
squidlyGenius16: I like to code its fun. but then i'm a freak like that06:02
neopsycheseacat: ok.. i uncommented backports06:02
nuffinBlistok dd06:02
squidlyPeddy: try commenting out the modelines and restarting X06:02
Blistokpajamian: ah. ok, looks like I have a manpage to read06:02
pajamianBlistok: dd if=/dev/foo of=driveimage.img06:02
Blistokpajamian: much easier. thanks! how do I restore that image file to the new drive?06:02
nuffinBlistok or dirrect with no image   dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb06:03
pajamianBlistok: if dd dies saying it can't read a block or something add conv=noerror as well, it will copy in spite of the errors that way.06:03
seacatneopsyche, edit /etc/apt/sources.list and uncomment lines that end in universe  (not backports)06:03
Gemmersdoes anyone here actually run ubuntu on their notebook06:03
squidlyPeddy: did you get my pm?06:03
CrazyPhil_Hello. How tu use ascii code in Ubuntu? Like Alt+1234. Thx06:03
nickrudneopsyche: you don't need backports, those sources you had were fine. What can't you find?06:03
RoyGemmers: I do06:03
pajamianBlistok: other option, mount the drive and just a use cp-a06:03
RyanPriorGemmers: I run Ubuntu on my notebook.06:03
pajamianBlistok: errr cp -a06:03
squidlyim currently running at 70hz06:03
mjw-Gemmers : yes, on an ~2002 dell latitude c51006:03
Frogzoohey no acroread in the gutsy repos ?! - can only find the .deb from adobe's site...?06:04
neopsychenickrud: E: Package kdelibs4c2 has no installation candidate06:04
GemmersRoy, did you notice any difference in battery life06:04
nickrudneopsyche: http://pastebin.ca/897085 these were, anyway if they are yours06:04
RyanPriorGemmers: The "Desktop" edition is also suitable for notebooks. It contains drivers for mobile graphics cards, wireless drivers, ACPI, and so on.06:04
Dr_willisFrogzoo,  its in medibuntu repos i beliuve06:04
mkbernardis it possible to have a samba share without hacing to login to the server?06:04
RyanPriorGemmers: Often Ubuntu gets worse battery life than Windows due to less complete support for ACPI power saving features and power saving support in general.06:04
Blistokpajamian: ok, thank you... what's the reverse for that dd command?06:04
Dr_willismkbernard,  you can set up all sorts of samba shares. Theres whole books on the topic. :)06:04
neopsycheseacat: universes are already uncommented06:04
Dr_willismkbernard,  the samba-doc package has the html book 'using samba' thats worth a read for advanced samba ussage.06:05
pajamianBlistok: dd if=imagefile of=/cev/whatever06:05
nickrudneopsyche: it's kdelibs4c2a , you probably also will need kdelibs4-dev for compiling06:05
pajamianBlistok: or...06:05
Gemmers<RyanPrior> Gemmers: Often Ubuntu gets worse battery life than Windows due to less complete support for ACPI power saving features and power saving support in general. | that's my conern06:05
neopsychenickrud: pastebin shows blank page06:05
RoyGemmers: The battery standby time is longer than what I used to get when I ran Vista on it.06:05
doverwell, tried memetest and it doesnt look like my memory's an issue06:05
Adman1965Hey guys06:05
Adman1965I have a simple question06:05
nickrudneopsyche: I copied that from your post earlier ;)06:05
neopsychenickrud: no.. i have E: Package kdelibs4c2a i need the other one06:05
doveracould ANY piece of hardware keep ubuntu from even installing?06:05
GemmersI wish it would be longer since ubuntu uses less resources06:05
nuffinBlistok command   man dd    :)06:05
pajamianBlistok: mount the image and copy the contents off of it, you can loopback mount the image with: mount -oloop imagefile /media/mountpoint06:05
Dr_willisdover,  ive heard of some machines/hardwares that do have issues.06:06
mkbernarddoes each user have to have an account on the box, or is there a way to add a username and password just for the smbd?06:06
RoyMy battery stand-by time in Ubuntu is 2 and a half hour compared to 2 hours in Windows.06:06
Blistokpajamian: thanks!06:06
neopsycheseacat: what do we do now?06:06
doverso what did they do?06:06
Dr_willismkbernard,  thers ways to have public samba shares.06:06
nickrudneopsyche: install kdelibs4-dev , it will pull in the matching binary06:06
doverthey just dont install it?06:06
Adman1965does anyone know a graphics card that will do 1600x1050 on 7.10?06:06
doveror get anotyher version of linux?06:06
neopsycheseacat: back to compiling... how / what must i do now?06:06
leprasmurfhello all...I'm about to go to bed, what is the most thorough scan of my system that I can run while I sleep?06:06
Adman1965i am looking to make sure before i purchase06:06
RyanPriorGemmers: Windows often uses a slew of tricks to improve battery life, which require special drivers to utilize fully. Often Ubuntu doesn't have support for those, so while it is in some ways more efficient than Windows, it is less able to take advantage of the special hardware features.06:06
seacatneopsyche, edit /etc/apt/sources.list and uncomment lines that end in restricted06:06
RyanPriorGemmers: That's obviously a problem that's being worked on, but it is an honest problem right now.06:06
mkbernardadman, filesystem check06:06
Genius16leprasmurf: restart at least 40 times and wait for a disc scan06:06
pajamiandover: it is technically possible for any piece of hardware to cause all sorts of strange and unpredictable problems.06:07
lanzellothhi, how do i add 'start terminal here' in right click menu in nautilus?06:07
GemmerssoRoy how did you manage that06:07
Adman1965I am thinking about a 7300LE06:07
leprasmurfGenius16: I already did an fsck in single user mode06:07
italyswhen i try to compile alsa-utils, it can't find libasound even though it's installed06:07
Dr_willisand edit the .bashrc to make the changes permenet06:07
italysany suggestions?06:07
doverman...some luck...lol my buddy says get ubuntu, its really easy to install, i doubt you'll have issues06:07
GemmersHey I'm not against ubuntu in any kind, hence I wouldn't be downloading it and trying to install it right now06:07
CrazyPhil_Adman1965, most Nvidia card support this resolution, back to geforce 2-3. Ati you need a pretty recent one06:07
ASTX813Anyone had experience connecting a Palm via Bluetooth?06:07
nickrudneopsyche: http://pastebin.ca/897085 weren't these yours?06:07
FrogzooDr_willis: aight thx06:07
Oni-Dracula|lappdoes anyone know of a command line option for xawtv that allows one to set a camera's format (NTSC or PAL)06:07
pajamiandover: it usually is, but if you have bad hardware all bets are off.06:07
Genius16leprasmurf: lol. yeah i mean if you're running linux you shouldnt need to run any scan for a typical user.06:07
squidlyASTX813: bluetooth is a pain imho. but nice once you get it running ;)06:07
RyanPrior!anyone | ASTX81306:08
ubotuASTX813: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?06:08
mkbernardwell what if i dont want it to be public per se, but just have the user account owned only by the samba process06:08
Adman1965Cool.  Thanks.06:08
ASTX813Pain, indeed06:08
pajamiandover: what hardware do you have in your system?06:08
Genius16metal and silicon!06:08
mjw-dover you didn't stick in an old XT hard disk controller for the heck of it did you? ;)06:08
dovermobo's a p4p80006:08
squidlyok ive gotta run everyone06:08
squidlytalk to you all later good luck and have a nice weekend06:08
neopsycheseacat: are uncommented except for backports06:08
GemmersI need to upgrade my notebook ram first06:08
GemmersAnd also there's a slot that looks like it's ram but I don't think it is06:08
RoyI kept the default settings Gemmers and it worked like a charm.06:08
neopsychenickrud: not sure.. i cant see them06:08
seacatneopsyche,   sudo apt-get install kdelibs4c2  kdelibs4c2a06:08
leprasmurfGenius16: understood, but my system is kinda suffering from to many improper shutdowns.  it keeps hanging on shutdown due to a bug in the wireless06:08
doverXT hardisk controller?06:08
pajamiandover: that's old, ubuntu can certainly run on it, but older hardware like that is more likely to have problems.06:08
Dr_willisHmm. Whenever i copy styff over samba to my linux box. from the vista machine.. the network gets SOO slow/clogged that xming is Useless... odd.06:08
nickrudneopsyche: strange, I simply copied and pasted what you posted06:08
neopsychenickrud: i need to install klava.. how is installing that 94+mb file going to help?06:08
GemmersPerhaps it's VGA ram, but I don't think so06:09
mjw-dover just kidding...06:09
Genius16leprasmurf: an automated scan wouldnt fix that.06:09
nickrudneopsyche: you need to have the right libraries and headers to compile with06:09
leprasmurfGenius16: earlier tonight I was experiencing major weirdness with connectivity and such, which prompted me to try some maintenance06:09
neopsychenickrud: where?06:09
Dr_willisneopsyche,  still dident try that deb i built eh? :)06:09
neopsycheDr_willis: you built a deb?06:09
neopsycheDr_willis: where?!06:09
ASTX813Well I've made no progress beyond getting the Palm listed as a trusted device in the bluetooth applet06:09
_Oz_what's the trick for creating a multisided cube in compiz-fusion?  I can only get one "pane"06:09
Genius16leprasmurf: network weirdness? i love the internets and stuff. what was happeneing? this is wireless i take it?06:09
leprasmurfGenius16: so I don't have to worry about random corruptions, or anything outside of the journal that might not be checked?06:09
GemmersIt's sort of like a RAM slot but not, perhaps it's for wireless06:09
pajamiandover: did you run the test from the boot menu to make sure the install CD is not corrupted?06:09
neopsycheDr_willis: is that the .deb from the file share?06:10
Dr_willisneopsyche,  ive sent you 2 different fileshare and some other site links to the deb packages over the last hour.06:10
nickrudneopsyche: oh, seacat pasted for you, sorry06:10
Peddysquidly: are you still there? I restarted x06:10
doveri also checked the disc06:10
Dr_willisneopsyche,  the last one was not a fileshare. it was some other place. :)06:10
leprasmurfGenius16: yeah, wireless.  I used to think it was 'cause of wpa_supplicant, but I disabled wpa on my home wifi and it still happens06:10
neopsycheDr_willis: i thought that was the original deb i downloaded earlier from another source06:10
squidlyPeddy: yea for a sec06:10
pajamiandover: how old is the cd rom drive on the box you're installing onto?06:10
squidlydid that fix it for you?06:10
Genius16leprasmurf: id say if you're having a problem with the inner-nut-webs its not going to effect your system as a whole.06:10
doverhmm.....maybe 2 years06:10
squidlyPeddy: hmm..06:10
Dr_willisneopsyche,  why would i send you that one. :P06:10
neopsycheDr_Willis: is this yoru new deb? .. http://www.load.to/?d=2FDgvRKuti06:11
pajamiandover: not too bad, how old is the motherboard/cpu (the p4/800?)06:11
leprasmurfGenius16: whenever I connect to my home wireless, and subsequently try to shutdown my computer, the shutdown scripts start to run, but hang with some error I have written down somewhere06:11
Peddysquidly: I set it in displayconfig-gtk, it appears to be working, but when I open the program again its still 5006:11
Dr_willisneopsyche,  looks like it.06:11
Genius16leprasmurf: what problem are you having? what are the symptoms? also what wifi card do you have?06:11
doverid say thats about.....4-5 years06:11
leprasmurfGenius16: and the only way to fully shutdown at that point is to do a hard shutdown06:11
Peddysquidly: for some reason there is no profile that loads? does this happen for you?06:11
pajamiandover: ok, well, how much RAM do you have?06:11
Genius16leprasmurf: message me the error message?06:11
FY1what is the default root password? I've never had to SU until now, and I don't remember setting one when I installed ubuntu06:12
leprasmurfGenius16: hang on, gotta find it06:12
Genius16leprasmurf:  or spit it out here whatevers.06:12
squidlyPeddy: nope.06:12
Dr_willisFY1,  there is none.06:12
Dr_willis!root | FY106:12
ubotuFY1: 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/RootSudo06:12
neopsycheDr_willis: after clicking download .. it takes me to a page to uplaod..06:12
pajamiandover: that should be plenty, hrmmm ....06:12
Peddysquidly: ok06:12
doveryeah...i know lol06:12
FY1that's gay06:12
FY1oh well06:12
pajamiandover: what about the power supply?  how old is that?06:12
Dr_willisFY1,  no its not.06:12
FY1Maybe some people like the power of SU06:12

Peddysquidly: do you have any idea what might be happening?06:13
mjw-!justask | jesenko06:13
ubotujesenko: Please don't ask to ask a question, ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)06:13
FY1and they won't delete shit that's needed06:13
Dr_willisFY1,  its still there.. aparently you dont know know enough linux to see the obvious way to enable it.06:13
neopsycheseacat: i have uncommented.06:13
Dr_willisFY1,  do what you want.   This is linux.06:13
squidlyPeddy: not off the top of my head. and I'm sorry I wont be around i've gotta run to my gf's06:13

Dr_willisneopsyche,  the download worked for me. I just waited the 4 sec. and clicked on download. :006:13
doverprob a bit less, im pretty sure i switched cases after i had already built this system06:13
squidlyPeddy: sorry.06:14
Peddycan someone please help me to set my screen refresh rate?06:14
Peddysquidly: np06:14
neopsycheDr_willis: doesnt want to work fo rme06:14
nickrudFY1: or, you haven't heard of sudo -i06:14
Peddysquidly: thanks for helping so far :006:14
pajamiandover: well, everything seems to be fine in the specs you're giving me, but it is always possible that something is failing and you don't know about it.06:14
neopsycheDr_willis: could you email it?06:14
Dr_willisneopsyche,  you got bigger issues then. :)06:14
Genius16squidly: whats the 411 on his refresh prob?06:14
squidlyPeddy: but fyi the nvidia drivers do set automaticaly for the screen resolution you have06:14
Peddysquidly: even if displayconfig-gtk doesn't think so?06:14
squidlyGenius16: its running at 50hz running the nvidia drivers.. and he wants to push it up06:14
jesenkodid anyone get this wireless card working or do they have a way to fix it the forums don't have nothing that work my lsusb display is this: Bus 007 Device 002: ID 0bda:8197 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.06:15
dovercould it be something as stupid as having 2 soundcards and 2 lan cards or somethinng like that?06:15
Dr_willisneopsyche,  try that dcc send.06:15
dovermy onboard lan stopped working a few months ago so i bought a seperate lan card06:15
mjw-ugh, 50Hz refresh, now there's ripe slice of hell for you.06:15
squidlyPeddy: my drivers do change when I change resoltuion automagickly06:15
neopsychedcc send06:15
RoyI have the same issue, I have the nVidia chip and I want my refresh rate from 50 hz to 60 hz06:15
neopsycheDr_willis: dcc send?06:15
neopsycheDr_willis: im using chatzilla.. cant see dcc06:15
Peddysquidly: what do you mean your drivers change?06:15
hotmonkeyluvis there a recommended utility/program that can cycle through a folder of pictures and make them the desktop?06:16
Dr_willisneopsyche,  you may want to start using xchat06:16
pajamiandover: if your onboard lan has failed then it is not unreasonable to assume that something else on your motherboard may be failing as well.06:16
pajamiandover: however...06:16
squidlywhen I change resoltuions or an applicaion chagnes my resolution the refresh rate gets reset for me06:16
neopsyche_Dr_willis: please dcc now06:16
pajamiandover: did you properly disable the onboard lan in the CMOS setup or did you just leave it and toss another card in?06:16
Peddysquidly: oic resolution06:16
doverstill dont understand how windows NEVER gives me problems, but i install ubuntu and it just wont install06:16
Peddysquidly: but refresh rates are different :P06:17
squidlyyou could try chagne the line HorixSync to 6006:17
neopsyche_Dr_willis: im in xchat now06:17
squidlyPeddy: yes06:17
neopsyche_Dr_willis: can you send the file now/06:17
jesenko did anyone get this wireless card working or do they have a way to fix it the forums don't have nothing that work my lsusb display is this: Bus 007 Device 002: ID 0bda:8197 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.06:17
squidlylike right now i'm at 1440x900 and 70hz06:17
Ashfire908what is a good samba admin tool?06:17
CrazyPhil_squidly> I have experience low refresh rate problem in the past. It was cause by a bad recognition of my screen specifications (horizontal and vertical HZ) in the xorg.conf file.06:17
mjw-jesenko you might want to try searching the ubuntu forums for the specific make and model of your usb wireless card. speaking from experience support for realtek usb wireless is tricky right now06:17
doveri should go check ou my cmos i guess06:17
dovermake sure its disabled06:17
Peddysquidly: lcd monitor?06:17
squidlyCrazyPhil_: or the edi from the monitor06:17
squidlyPeddy: yes06:17
dovercause if ubuntu is trying to install driver for something that doesnt work...06:18
neopsycheDr_willis: can you send file to my other id?06:18
Peddysquidly: what drivers are you using? nv or nvidia or what?06:18
jesenkomjw i tried mo luck nobody got it working there and one person that has it didn't work06:18
pajamiandover: yes, make sure it is properly disabled, also I would remove the 2nd sound card just to be safe (you can always try adding it back in later)06:18
Dr_willisi dont even know if i can send. :)  been years since i tried.06:18
squidlythe nvidia drivers06:18
mjw-dover or it might be trying to poke the lan controller or enable it and it's hanging the system06:18
squidlyI dont like the nv drivers..06:18
doverwell one is onboard and the other one is a seperate sound blaster06:18
angelhey all, my cd/dvd drive isnt mounting properly can anyone give me a hand?06:18
Peddysquidly: I'm gonna try set the res in the nvidia utility06:18
Dr_willisneopsyche,  could try  http://www.yourfilelink.com/get.php?fid=45746006:18
squidlyPeddy: that usualy works well06:19
Dr_willisneopsyche,  i found 15 other file-shareing sites. :)06:19
Peddysquidly: refresh*06:19
squidlyPeddy: yes06:19
doverwell, ill probably see you all soon again lol, ill go check my cmos and try to install again after06:19
pajamiandover: well either disable the onboard in the cmos or remove the soundblaster.  Like I said, you cna always put it back later, but you want to try to eliminate problems now to see what is really causing it.06:19
Peddysquidly: isn't the refresh rate meant to depend on the monitor, not the gfx card?06:19
neopsycheDr_willis: thanks.. is downloading?06:19
squidlyPeddy: its dependent on both.06:19
neopsycheDr_willis: it is downloading ;-)06:19
biouserdo you guys have any favorite word-procs for mathematical typesetting ie Latex-helper wysiwyg-ish06:19

tokerMandriva has a nice GUI for that :)06:28
roddersgyes you do06:28
Dr_willisI wonder how adduser differes from useradd06:29
=== santri is now known as co_caem_kedingin
winter-mutereally annoying06:29
Dr_willistoker,   theres a gui somewhere inubuntu.. but i can type the command faster then i can find the menu item06:29
roddersgafter that, try mounting your cdrom again06:29
seacatneopsyche, Ok, good.06:29
neopsycheDr_WIllis: some of the tabs seem to be mission06:29
neopsycheseacat: hmm.. some of the tabs in kalva seem to be missing06:29
FlannelDr_willis, toker, pajamian, adduser is friendlier, it uses useradd as a backend for some stuff, and adds sane defaults for a lot of the values06:29
tokerDr_willis, yes I know what you mean.. I can't find it anywhere.06:29
Dr_willisneopsyche,  no idea. Could be some support files/stuff you need. it ran.. and i closed the app.. is all i did with it.06:29

Terrasqu1anyone have any experience with the hardy alpha? Is it usable in normal day to day use?06:33

Dr_willis_Oz_,  thers not to medibuntu to install. :)  You just set up the repository and install the extra packages you want.06:33
rebecca2930lnknpk04, if u did setup (hd0,0) not good it installs the bootloader in the partition and not the mbr06:33
Dr_willisnot much to medibutnu to install.. i mean. :)06:33
pajamiansayers: sorry, I don't now.  I've not had to adjust the brightness on my laptop and normally use a desktop.06:33
roddersgangel - if you are on GUI then try typing "gksudo gedit /etc/fstab" in a terminal window, you may need to enter your password06:33

lnknpk04rebecca2930, that HD has 3 partitions.  Sorry if i wasnt clear previously06:38
Genius16pajamian: she's actually pretty good. she's never herself contracted spyware, just when her husband gets on her computer. i wont touch his computer... im afraid it will infect me.06:39
pajamianGenius16: I usually ask them what they do with thier computer and tell them if it can/can't be done in ubuntu, then I offer to install it for them and configure it, etc and tell them if it doesn't work out they can always switch back to windoze.06:39
pajamianGenius16: so far I haven't had to switch anyone back to windoze yet.06:40
Genius16pajamian: yeah preaching to the choir06:40
angelroddersg, hey, question. i dont even have a floppy drive do i even need a mount point for it?06:40
Genius16pajamian: i got my friend of years and years, hardcore windows dude (even liked microsoft) to finally dual boot.06:40
rebecca2930lnknpk04, ive had a problem in debian sid it writes to the menu.list (hd0,0) but really its (hd2,0) on my machine06:41
pajamianGenius16: yeah, I know, just saying how I approach people to switch them over.  I will always wait until a re-install is needed as I figure that's the best time to get them to agree to try it.06:41
angelroddersg, couldnt i just delete that whole line?06:41
lnknpk04rebecca2930, going to go try it now.  thats just plain weird ;)06:41
roddersgangel - if you don't have a floppy drive, just delete that line06:41
Genius16pajamian: the best part about telling them what you can/cant do in *nix is you dont have to say "no" much.06:41
lnknpk04rebecca2930, let you know how it goes!06:41
rebecca2930lnknpk04, good luck06:41
roddersgangel - you could comment it out too06:41
angelroddersg, i dont ever plan on having one. i dont even know a place that sells em here.06:42
Genius16ok. im "the room is spinning" drunk.06:42
Genius16who needs help?06:42
_Oz_I don't totally "get" what medibuntu is.06:42
_Oz_I followed the instructions and used the terminal to...  get it somehow.06:42
_Oz_now what?06:42
_Oz_where are the apps?06:42
angelroddersg, ok now when i try to mount it says "mount: special device /dev/cdrom does not exist"06:42
roddersgGenius16 - how about WINE?  Its freezing when i try to access the filesystem06:42
Genius16_Oz_: isnt it a repo with all kinds of bad ass shit for videos and stuff?06:42
lanzelloth_Oz_: did you get an .iso?06:43
_Oz_genius: yes. what's a repo?06:43
_Oz_lanz: no06:43
pajamianGenius16: yep, I haven't yet.  Last one was using skype and didn't tell me when I initially asked her what she does with it.  It was good though because skype runs on Linux, but she was a bit disappointed that it didn't have webcam support yet, but she is fine with waiting for skype to add it to the linux version.06:43
Genius16roddersg:  how are you accessing the filesystem? which filesystem exactly?06:43
astro76_Oz_: I usually just need w32codecs and libdvdcss2 from there, if you want to see what's in it open up Synaptic, and click on the Origin tab06:43
pajamian_Oz_: the apps will be in synaptic now along with all the other apps available for ubuntu.06:43
_Oz_thank you.06:43
Genius16_Oz_: a repo is a place where programs go to be happy and merry with linux. its a great land that makes it easy for us to install them.06:43
roddersgGenius16 - normal WINE installation, progs work etc.  but when I do a file open, wine freezes06:44
_Oz_so it seems like I should be using synaptic more than the ol' "add and remove" under applications.06:44
astro76_Oz_: yes I believe add/remove only shows gui software06:44
Genius16roddersg: like you're running notepad and you go "file---open" and BLAM! your poo gets sexed?06:44
pajamian_Oz_: add and remove is fine, but synaptic works better.  They should be in add and remove as well.06:44
roddersgGenius - correct06:44
roddersgthought it was the nvidia driver but that's not it06:45
roddersgangel - can you type that fstab line again06:45
Genius16_Oz_: yeah add/remove is just a few of the wonderous programs that are in the repos. add/remove is cool though, if you dont want to go to "advanced" mode and by that i mean "noob" mode. if you're still using add/remove you're gonna learn a bit.06:45
rebecca2930lnknpk04, how many operating system do u have on your machine??06:45
_Oz_what's a better description of a repository?06:45
_Oz_not sure I conceptually "get it"06:45
Genius16roddersg: i dont know why it'd be a display driver. have you ran "notepad" in console and crashed it to get what errors wine is giving? thats the easy way06:46
lnknpk04rebecca2930, heres a weird result.  i changed the info in menu.lst from hd(0,0) to hd(1,0) and this time instead of a blank screen with a cursor the grub menu actually came up, but gives Error 2506:46
lnknpk04rebecca2930, i only have gutsy06:46
david_JI have a laptop in which I bought a wireless keyboard and mouse combo...06:46
david_JDo I need seperate entries in the Xorg.conf for the wireless stuff?06:46
astro76!repositories | _Oz_06:47
ubotu_Oz_: The packages in Ubuntu are divided into several sections. More information at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories and http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/components06:47
roddersgGenius16: Ok, just opened notepad, just opend a file and it freezed, no messages on the terminal window06:47
ubotupdf is the Portable Document Format created by Adobe; viewable in GNU/Linux with xpdf/kpdf/evince, and also adobe reader (free download, but closed source)06:47
roddersgGenius16: After a whle it says "Open" not responding06:47
roddersgGenius16: can type in stuff and save the file though06:48
CaptainMorganwhat's a good pdf app for ubuntu? the default is not capable of keeping open multiple pdf's...06:48
Genius16roddersg: and you ran notepad by running int he terminal "wine /home/#USERNAME/.wine/drive_c/windows/notepad.exe"06:48
CaptainMorganerr - in one window that is06:48
angelroddersg,“E325: attention, found a swap file by the name "etc/.fstab.swp"06:48
roddersgnope, just did a wine notepad06:48
Genius16if so, did you install wine through the repos? or compile from souce with any "modifications" to the code?06:49
_Oz_thanks, astro.06:49
roddersgangel - you have not closed your fstab file06:49
angelroddersg, i see nothing about it open06:49
Genius16roddersg: well er that works too. that whole "wine notepad"06:49
roddersgwine is through repos (dapper 6.06-2)06:49
pajamianroddersg: have you tried it with a fresh .wine directory?06:49
adubi need to install glib06:49
adubwhat do i need to apt-get to install this06:49
Genius16roddersg: didnt want you to be running notepad and opening a terminal.06:49
roddersgyes I have pajaminan06:49
pajamianroddersg: ok, what version of wine are you running?06:49
Genius16the drunk in me says "what havent you done to fix it?"06:50
roddersgwine 0.9.906:50
angelroddersg, should i just delete the swp file?06:50
pajamianroddersg: that is really old06:50
roddersgangel, your fstab file is still open in your editor, close it06:50
Genius16pajamian: he is running 6.0606:50
roddersgpajamian - I agree, i was running 7.04 amd64 and downgraded.  wine ran ok in 7.0406:50
Genius16i have to jew-a-nate. i mean pee.06:51
roddersgthe latest version from WineHQ is even worse, so I re-installed from the repos06:51
pajamianroddersg: goto www.winehq.org and follow the instructions for installing wine into your version of ubuntu, you will get the latest version of wine direct fromt he source.06:51
angelroddersg, i have no idea whats going on there. i see no other versions of it running06:51
roddersgpajamian - done that, that version is even worse, it wouldn't let me save it06:52
pajamianroddersg: you probably need to file a bug with winehq, then.06:52
roddersgstrange, but I can still save my files, just can't open and browse the directories06:52
astro76Genius16: excuse me?06:52
roddersgthought it was the alsa etc but that didn't work either06:52
Genius16astro76: im drunk? yeah thats the only explination.06:52
pajamianroddersg: or at least ask in a wine-specific channel.06:52
_Oz_what exactly is happening with "apt-get"?06:52
_Oz_what is that doing, precisely?06:53
ubotuAPT is the Advanced Package Tool, which together with dpkg forms the basic Ubuntu package management toolkit. Short apt-get manual: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGetHowto - Also see !Synaptic (Gnome) or !Adept (KDE)06:53
astro76Genius16: keep it clean and non-offensive or I suggest giving it a rest for the night06:53
lnknpk04what directories in my filesystem would i need to copy to be able to retain my installed programs after a reinstall.  My /home is already on another partition06:53
roddersgwas trying to get the wine-specific channel, do you have that handy?06:53
pajamian_Oz_: apt-get is like a command line version of synaptic.06:53
bullgard4[dhelp] Will dhelp search all html files in my Ubuntu computer or only documentation html files?06:53
Genius16astro76: i could have said "you-a-nate" but thats not nearly as funny.06:53
mouseboyxpajamian, the synaptic is like a gui version of apt-get...06:53

mouseboyxI know i was just giving you a hard time pajamian06:55
angelroddersg, no it is not fine yet. i have one etc/.fstab.swp that i dont need. how do i get rid of it. i have no open editors06:55
lnknpk04rebecca2930, did i stump you?06:55
roddersgangel do a sudo rm /etc/.fstab.swo06:55
astro76angel: just delete it, you'll need sudo: sudo rm /etc/.fstab.swp06:55
roddersgangel do a sudo rm /etc/.fstab.swp06:55
roddersgangel, here is my line from the /etc/fstab --> /dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660     user,noauto     0  006:56
angelroddersg, that got rid of those pesky buggers06:56
rebecca2930 lnknpk04 no how many Oses do u have on the machine?06:56
lnknpk04rebecca2930, only one, Gutsy06:57
roddersgangel: mind you I have a dvd rom, and there is a link from /media/cdrom to /media/cdrom006:57
angelroddersg, mine is a cd dvd rom06:57
rebecca2930lnknpk04, was it loaded at one time on a different partion??06:57
roddersgangel: also, my cdrom is on the 2nd IDE interface as master06:57
roddersgangel: where is your cdrom located?06:58
lnknpk04rebecca2930, no.  Nothing has changed since initial install06:58
angelroddersg, same cable as my hard drive, second plug06:58
roddersgok, then use /dev/hdb instead06:58
rebecca2930lnknpk04, hmmm weird06:58
pajamianangel: that's known as primary=slave, fyi.06:58
angelpajamian, dont i get enough bonus points for being a girl?06:59
lnknpk04rebecca2930, yeah.  Since my /home is on a separate partition, think i should try reinstalling the OS?  I just dont want to lose my installed programs06:59
pajamianangel: :-)06:59

robc4lnknpk04, did this happen after a kernel update?07:07
pajamianangel: your drives are either scsi or sata07:07
roddersgangel - I really don't know, how did this happen07:07
robc4because mine did the exact same thing after last nights update07:07

lnknpk04robc4, if it does, it would be fixed by just copying my backed up menu.lst, correct?07:12

chaosrlmaybe someone else could help here07:12
Atyab^Girli'm having trouble setting up my connection on the pc! i use 'sudo pppoeconf" and set it up.. when am done only gaim opens up though i cant browse the net something to do with my DNS i guess since if i get a resolved site's ip i could get into it07:12

robc4lnknpk04, yea, I would, but if it happens again after you install a kernel update, that is the problem07:13
robc4ity has happened to me the past two kernel updates07:13
nickrudrobc4: I'm getting ready to run the update, from what I've seen here the (hd0,0) changes? Is that what you saw?07:13
iNuswois anyone there that can help me with a sound problem or am i a ghost right now?07:13
lnknpk04rebecca2930, seems to be working now :)07:13

rebecca2930lnknpk04, what did u do??07:14
astro76!sound | iNuswo07:14
ubotuiNuswo: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php?page=DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP307:14
angelpajamian, well in /etc/fstab if it says hdb doesnt exist, and my computer things its scsi couldnt i change it there to scsi?07:14
pajamianangel: keep in mind I haven't been following your entire conversation07:14
robc4nickrud, its commented out, so it doesnt matter07:15
robc4nickrud, maybe it needs to be uncommented07:15
pajamianangel: sdb, but before you change /etc/fstab you should try to mount it manually to see if it's correct.07:15
iNuswoastro i'm a little bit beyond that07:15
nickrudrobc4: yes it does, that's what update-grub uses to rebuild the boot stuff. It should stay with one #07:15
rredd4astro76 not sure why my password is not being accepted when I ssh from the mac.  When I go to terminal and sudo or root, password is accepted.07:15
robc4ahh alrighty07:15
pajamianangel: do you have a cd in the drive?07:15
angelpajamian, good call, i have a cd ready and everything07:15

nickrudrobc4: does yours have 1,0 ?07:15
rredd4astro76 terminal on ubuntu pc07:15
robc4nickrud, well its groot=(hd1,0)07:15
robc4change it to 0,0 probably07:16
nickrudrobc4: change it to 0,0 , then update-grub won't screw it up again07:16

ubotuUsually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, join #ubuntu-bots and ask there.07:30

Now my issue is whenever I try to unlock the screen, my keyboard simply refuses to work, I can't enter my password. Every time this happens, I have to make an improper shutdown. I have the desktop effects disabled. Can someone give me a hint or a clue as to why this is happening?07:38

jootmenllyos, you could prolly trundle through your sys logs I have attempted that a few times unsuccessfully or use the if it aint broke theory08:33
jesse__Kohler: search the internet, run nautilus in some sort of debug mode with terminal output, or try removing the packages that might be involved in the process.08:33
jesse__Kohler: iirc, there are special packages that enable that functionality in nautilus08:34

solid_liqBVBBQ, hmm...  you should try installing a different kernel, because it looks like you're missing some drivers09:04
BVBBQsolid_liq, a different kernel you say. sound pretty involved.09:05
solid_liqBVBBQ, not really, you just apt-get install it, and reboot09:05
BVBBQso, apt-get install what?09:06
BVBBQkinda been wanting to try ubuntu studio.09:06
solid_liqBVBBQ, do:   apt-cache search linux-image     and pick one that should work on your machine, install it, and reboot to see if the drive works with that kernel (make sure you select it in grub if it's not set to the default)09:06
hintswenubuntu sttudio? :S wow i really need to use ubuntu more often09:06
BVBBQsolid_liq, so which should work?09:07

tarelerulzIs there a version of yahoo messenger for Linux that is more update.  It says tested on woody. if so what about amd64 not i386.  maybe a .tgz file ?09:07
hintsweni need to backup my whole drive to a partition on my second drive :(09:08
solid_liqBVBBQ, linux-image-386 maybe?  I'm not sure, I'm on gutsy, and the kernel package names have changed09:08
BVBBQsolid_liq, 386 you say,09:08
solid_liqBVBBQ, that just means x86 architecture09:09
BVBBQsolid_liq, so just apt-get linux-image-38609:09
hintswenanyone help me get write access to a partition?09:09
solid_liqBVBBQ, apt-get install linux-image-386 ; reboot09:09
BVBBQok, and to select that one after?09:09
Myster1anyone know approx how long it would take to upgrade feisty to gutsy using update manager?09:10
BVBBQsolid_liq, when i restart do i just hit esc when grub is loading right?09:10
BVBBQand look for linux image 38609:10
tarelerulzWhat doe the x86 mean any ways. I have seen  i386, i586, i686 and now amd64 ,but x86 is new to me.09:10
solid_liqBVBBQ, you know that screen that comes up after your bios screen?  that's the grub bootloader...  like if you've set your machine up for dualboot, you've seen it before09:10
jcg42Should the time in the BIOS be set to UTC or local time?09:10
chicagonpgMyster1 If I remeber right it will be like 30mins09:11
BVBBQsolid_liq, was just checking to make sure09:11
solid_liqBVBBQ, it won't be called linux-image-386, that's a pseudo package which pulls in an appropriate kernel.  when it's downloading, look at the actual name, and that's what you'll want to select09:11

Wibble-okaasan: I suspect you will still need to run it on bootup, because that is the only time to recover from a bad shutdown - but you could probably run it with different params on shutdown to make the 30-day check run then.09:22
