LjLcrusie: you know what, i never really quite understood that, i'll have to admit. especially, i've never quite understood what (if anything) you will lose with the "noapic" option, which is another that you should try00:40
crusie"another" ?00:40
echosystmpocketdrummer: the reason you use linux is because you are a tinkering geek, you want awesome security, or you are running a server - windows cant really compete here00:40
vixscrambledegg, it was libjavaplugin.so for me yes.00:40
LjLGreen, all programs will work equally well or equally badly as far as NTFS goes. it depends on how the filesystem works, and i haven't really a clue00:40

Lr5_LjL: How about "irqpoll"? No idea what you are talking about, though00:41
echosystmmacosx has something similar pocketdrummer00:41
scrambledeggvix: its a GNU implementation of java, and its very buggy with applets00:41
pocketdrummerreally? What's it called in OS X?00:41
echosystmthe only reason linux has synaptic is because it is a pain in the ass to install anything without it00:42

LjLLr5_, crusie: i'd say to put them in order from least crippling to most, "noapic", "noacpi", "acpi=off", "irqpoll". noapic just means that the "advanced programmable interrupt controller" that's on newer computers won't be used, shouldn't be a big deal. "noacpi" and "acpi=off" mean that (part of?) ACPI won't be used, i assume that might impact power saving and such things, and i don't know what the difference is between the two. "irqpoll" means that some00:45
LjLrelatively expensive checks are done on interrupts. i don't really know very precisely at all, i just know they're common options used to troubleshoot boot problems00:45

DraiconePhildo: Err... what does su do?01:02
xSnOoPyxoh gotcha.01:02
xSnOoPyxbut uh01:02
PhildoDraicone: actually changes your user to the real 'root'01:02
mjw-!sudo | Draicone01:02
ubotuDraicone: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information.01:02
xSnOoPyxwhat about all my settings and files?01:02
scrambledeggDraicone: su asks for the root password, which ubuntu doesnt have by default01:02
nickrudxSnOoPyx: do you have a separate home partition?01:02
|david|Draicone: it switches your user to another in the terminal01:02
PhildoDraicone: whereas sudo keeps your user, but gives you root permissions.01:02
xSnOoPyxwhat do you mean?01:02
PhildoDraicone: thus 'sudo' root :01:03
xSnOoPyx"/home" if thats what you mean01:03
|david|use su like this- su USERNAME01:03
nickrudxSnOoPyx: then when you reinstall, tell the installer not to format your home partition and all your settings (except for the stuff in etc) will be kept01:03

nickrudxSnOoPyx: during the partitioning phase01:03
xSnOoPyxokay im on step 701:03

PhildoDraicone: your user password.01:04
scrambledeggDraicone: but i dont recommend it01:04
xSnOoPyxand now, how do i specify01:04
nickrudxSnOoPyx: I don't do a lot of installs, so I can't really walk you through the exact commands01:04
PhildoDraicone: as your user has been allowed (in /etc/sudoers) to use sudo root.01:04
nickrudxSnOoPyx: plus, I use the alternate install when I do :)01:05
mjw-jw144000 Windows should still be able to see the disk, even if it's in an unrecognized format.01:05

kdallasHi guys! Q: if I have a hosts file to block access to certain sites, where could I place it to become effective in gusty? Thanks01:20

HirvinenA local root exploit in Gentoo. In Ubuntu as well: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20946001:23

rdavilamjw-, yeah, only one screen come up01:24
benny269hon: 2.1.7301:24
mjw-rdavila nvidia-settings may not recognize the TNT2 card, that's getting kind of old. I'm guessing only the Geforce2MX card only comes up?01:24
honbenny269: can you try this in the terminal: octave <ret> while 1 ; end <ret> C-c01:25
hondoes it close it?01:25
jarredis there any way to integrate programs into an ubuntu cd to install01:25
Pirate_Huntercan someone help me get vidalia working please :( ?01:25
honjarred: you want a customized ubunut CD. there are many ways, I guess.01:25
rdavilamjw-, yeah, only the Geforce2MX come up01:25
jarredis there any programs with a decent gui like nlite01:26
jarredlike a nlite for ubuntu01:26
scrambledeggHirvinen: shit the exploit works01:26
mjw-rdavila i'm not familiar with nvidia cards/x.org servers...is the nvidia server the proprietary NVidia driver?01:26
benny269hon: yeah that breaks the loop01:26
xSnOoPyxAlright I have set permissions completely at 77701:26
benny269hon: in koctave C-c first time beeps, C-c beeps and warns 1 more time will abort, 3rd time it closes koctave01:26
mjw-mjw- because it might not support the TNT2...that's getting kind of old. the "nv" server might work with it.01:26

HirvinenMentioned exploit works also at least on older 2.6.17-12. Not on 2.6.20-16 though.01:27
rdavilamjw-: then i try to change from ''nvidia to 'nv' for this device?01:28
jarredis there any gui programs thajt let you integrate programs into an ubuntu cd01:28
benny269hon: tried running the program in terminal and same thing happens, C-c 3 times necessary to end process but ended octave instance as well01:28
mjw-rdavila yes...change line 93 to Driver "nv"01:28
rdavilamjw-: thanks, i come back ;)01:29
mjw-rdavila ok, let me know01:29
honbenny269: do you use the features provided by koctave? I recommend using a text editor like emacs or vim with octave in terminal (or in emacs). That keeps things a lot leaner and more reliable. That's how most people I know use octave.01:29

speeddemon8803nobody on windows could figure it out, hp, or intel02:35
speeddemon8803it happens on windows and linux02:35
peabodyTyger: Broadcom cards are pretty finicky.  Are you using the open source driver or the windows driver in ndiswrapper?02:35

speeddemon8803tyger, i cant get ANY connection to my own router from my pc.02:37
lulzturtlemacogw, so does that mean if the server I made on ubuntu has been told to use port 27015 for connections it will use it no problem?02:37
macogwlulzturtle: yep02:37
peabodyTyger: I would.  I have a broadcom and it behaves much better using the windows drivers with ndiswrapper02:37
lulzturtlemacogw, Is there a way to test that?02:37
macogwlulzturtle: but if it's behind a router, you need to tell the router to forward that port to the server02:37
speeddemon8803Macogw i am aware of nautiuls, was just asking if i was reading it right.02:37
macogwspeeddemon8803: oh ok sorry02:37

dabbillhurm i just installed swiftweasle32 but flash games seem to run in slow motion02:38

lulzturtlespeeddemon8803, can you help me run a dedicated steam server on ubuntu? I suck with the google and can't find any sites to help with the specifics of it :P02:44
WorkingOnWisecrdlb: then that brings to another problem. I do not want composite on most of the time. Only if I am gonna show off Compiz-Fusion. I cant find how to turn it off in my xorg.conf. I have tried Composite "False" "Disabled" and "0", based on howto's and a person in the ##xorg channel....any ideas? Composite is stubborn. It wants to live!02:44
karloi really need some help02:44

gttcan someone explain to me why my /home partition has a size of 449gb, used space of 199mb, and free space of 426gb ? http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/55429/02:47
karloanyway if the terminal tells something like autoremove02:47
karlodo you think it's a good idea to remove it?02:47
WorkingOnWisecrdlb: video is Nvidia 6100 in a laptop, works perfect. So much eyecandy my eye cavities have cavities :D But, I run 2 windows apps, both 3d, with wine. if I run them with compiz on, they break in strange ways. Wine is such a moving target still that i never know if the problem is wine or my app. Well, if composite is off totally, I cant accidentally run the apps with compiz enabled, and hopefull reduce my headaches02:47
gtti mean, that's a difference of 15gigs which is a rather sizeable chunk?02:47
dhineshjason> r u there02:48
WorkingOnWisecrdlb: oh, the latest Nvidia proprietary drivers too..169.09 iirc02:48
macogw karlo yes it means it was installed because something depended on it, but you removed whatever pulled it in, so now its just taking up space02:48
* Kuwanger wonders why cpu usage spikes when switching windows.02:48
ConstyXIVkarlo: autoremove means that another package depended on it, and that package was removed.  If you're not using it, you're clear02:48

lhoersteI'm looking for something that can make the desktop bigger than my screen (cause it's a TV and small) and then I can drag my mouse around the edges to move the viewing window. If someone could just tell me what this is called, that'd help a lot too.03:36
speeddemon8803!hi | _Oz_03:36
ubotu_Oz_: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu!03:36
lhoerstesoldats: ^^03:36
cabrioleurthinman1189: try "sudo /etc/rc0.d/S15wpa-ifupdown restart" in terminal03:36
_Oz_hi speeddomon03:36
hieppohello anyone experience with ati x1250 video?03:36
cabrioleurthinman1189: but reboot would do the same03:36
_Oz_well, I am finally hitting some practical limits in my quest to ditch XP altogether for ubuntu03:36
hieppospecifically with enabling dual monitor?03:36
_Oz_problem: you can't really run m$ word and excel perfectly, and adobe photoshop cs2 is not production-quality.03:37
macogwlhoerste: i called it "oops" when it happened to me03:37
sierhieppo,  I searched a little, and got mine to work in 20 min.. (nvidia )03:37

ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about speech-to-text - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi03:37
deathfacespeach to text haha03:37
hieppoI know about nvidia. I had it working with an nvidia card too. it is quite easy compared to ati drivers03:37
macogw_Oz_: install virtualbox and run windows in a vm then03:37
TailsfanFunny, but I like using it03:37
CARRESSHi, I have an installation question...should I ask here or is there another channel I should be in?03:37
thinman1189loa, it didn't work. cabrioleur, i've tried rebooting my computer, do you mean that rebooting or what loa said?03:37
Tailsfanthis is the right channel03:37
hieppomy current setup has a monitor on dvi and a projector on hdmi03:38
_Oz_macogw: how's the performance penalty?03:38
macogw_Oz_: virtualbox can do that mode parallels does where the programs that are running in Windows are just floating on your desktop instead of inside a box03:38
macogw_Oz_: smaller than with vmware03:38
_Oz_can I really design in adobe photoshop without a huge hit?03:38
_Oz_I like the idea of a parallels-style interface03:38
loa<thinman1189> look at your settings vim /etc/network/interfaces03:38
macogw_Oz_: virtualbox is the fastest virtual machine, based on the benchmarks i saw, if you pre-allocate the hard drive space (setting "dynamic" so it resizes as you use space makes it very slow though)03:38
loa<thinman1189> route -n03:38
shearseriously...they push a firefox update down that breaks flash. right on03:38
cabrioleurthinman1189: both, what I said and what he said, is done during reboot as well.03:38
CARRESSok..here's the question- keep in mind, I've joined the ubuntu forum, and I've googled and read a few documents.03:39
Jordan_U_Oz_, You mean where each windows application has it's own window?03:39
CARRESSIt doesn't seem like anyone is addressing a brand new hd w/o an os installed, and I remember reading once that in order to dual boot, windows had to go on first...03:39
pocketwatchlhoerste, edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. look for a line called "Virtual" and change the resolution (back it up first!)03:39
_Oz_I need to play a bit with virtualbox03:39
_Oz_it doesn't look super user-friendly03:39
loa<thinman1189> I think you reconfigure something wrong...03:39
_Oz_then again, I'm an idiot03:39
ArielMT_Oz_: yup.  you'll need to install windows in a virtualbox vm, but once you have that and the virtualbox driver installed in windows, your windows windows and ubuntu windows can be side-by-side :D03:39
badkittyCARRESS: It doesnt have to go on first, it just makes it way easier to setup03:39
loa<_Oz_> i think it is very userfriendly)03:39
thinman1189loa, all i did was turn off my wireless and turn on wired. the settings look the same but it won't work03:40
_Oz_arielmt: I will do it.03:40
CARRESSbad, ok.. so I  should put on windows first, and partition the hd thru windows?03:40
_Oz_I wish we could get M$' apps to be truly and 100% compatible in linux03:40
_Oz_I have no choice but to use them, everyone at my office uses office03:40
Jordan_U_Oz_, I wish we didn't need to :)03:40
badkittyCARRESS: Yes, infact if you can partition the drive before you install windows, thats the easiest03:40
_Oz_converting them will be impossible :)03:40
_Oz_jordan_U: I am with you there.03:41
loa<thinman1189> show me your ifconfig and route -n, and describe what connection you want create03:41
_Oz_I hate M$.03:41
macogw_Oz_: http://blog.gobanquet.com/index.php/virtualbox-15-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly/03:41
_Oz_Hate the way they make me jump through hoops.\03:41
CARRESSpartition it using what?  I'm rather green...03:41
_Oz_ah, thanks, macogw.03:41
speeddemon8803!factoid speech-to-text03:41
macogw_Oz_: note that the "the bad" that says there are no packages for the open source edition is now wrong.  it's virtualbox-ose in the repos03:41
cabrioleur_Oz_: OpenOffice filters for excell and word don't work for you?03:41
CARRESSbadkitty partition it using what?  I'm rather green...03:41
_Oz_cabrioleur: the problem is I work on fairly complex spreadsheets which are then passed off to other people in the office03:42
badkittyCARRESS: There are a ton of partitioners you can download for free and make a live boot cd from to do this.. Many of the HDD cd's come with partitioners as well03:42
macogw_Oz_: i dont know what else has changed since the article was written. i dont use that mode.  itd be silly when my virtual machine is debian without X :P03:42
_Oz_openoffice is fine for simple stuff, but if you dig past skin deep it's not really compatible with office 200303:42
ArielMTcan OOo understand office 2k7's format?03:42
lhoerstepocketwatch: there is no "Virtual" line03:42
cabrioleur_Oz_: if you use Office 2003 consider CrossOffice.03:42
badkittyCARRESS: You have a brand new HDD right?03:42
CARRESSbadkitty, yes03:42
cylexWhat port do I need open to recieve email?03:42
_Oz_cabrioleur: I did.  crossoffice doesn't really support it 100%.  the only "gold" status they give is to office 2000, which is too old.03:43
badkittyCARRESS: What brand is it? Did it come with a CD?03:43
speeddemon8803cylex it depends on your isp03:43
cylexspeeddemon8803: my isp allows port 25 to be open, but I thought it was to send th email03:43
badkittyBRB CARRESS03:43
CARRESSbadkitty  it's a toshiba, no cd..  but I do have my toshiba recovery disk (w. xp)that came w/ the laptop initially...03:43

sanestoi copied menu.lst and still got error 2104:15

cylexthinman1189: what ip you get when you type ifconfig -a04:30
iKapwhat codecs do i need to install for MPLAYER to play mpgs, divx, wmvs, etc.. just all basic formats?!04:31
jijutmon getting my gdm screen back to norma.04:31
pocketdrummersanesto: When you boot into Ubuntu, press Ctrl+Alt+F1. From there, type sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf04:31
sanestobut the prob is that i can't see anything on the screen to type...04:31
cptnapalmjijutm, what is your gdm screen doing?04:31
cylexthinman1189: when I had internet connection problem, every time I set the static ip, I had to reboot, in order for it to work, ubuntu networking is kinda messed up04:31
_Oz_Although, it's got me thinking: I realize this is old hat to all of you linuxheads who long ago swore off windows, but as a guy who's recently jumped off the ship, I am going through new thought processes.  what I'm wondering is: if I can't get away from the windows apps which chain me to M$, what's the point of ubuntu (other than having fun)?04:31
thinman1189cylex that gives me a lot of output which adress?04:31
badkittyiKap: go to medibuntu.org install the packages it has there (mostly libdvdcss2 and w32codecs and the ffmpeg one04:32
jijutmit shows me a warning only.. with no xservers are configured.. this may be a config error04:32
jijutmi should login and fix it04:32
thinman1189cylex i've rebooted multiple times and no dice04:32
pocketdrummersanesto: I can't either until I press ctrl+alt+F1. It takes you to the terminal. You have to make sure it is a capital X or it won't work. The terminal is case-sensitive.04:32
drpckenok right now i'm using Pidgin for a multi-protocol IM, only problem is when i have a chat window minimized, it doesn't flash when i receive a new message.  i didn't see a setting for this.  is there a way? or can you suggest a BETTER multiprotocol IM?04:32
iKapbadkitty, i rememebr there being a command to do this thorugh the terminal that installed all needed codecs.. etc.04:32
badkittyiKap: You can also do a sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras04:32
cptnapalmjijutm, so just a console?  No X at all?04:32
iKapbadkitty, thats all?04:32
cptnapalmah ok.  X is borked then.04:32
cptnapalmWhich is never fun.04:33
iKapmy X is broken as well, so im about to go restore.04:33
jijutmi dont get you04:33
cptnapalmWhat kind of graphics card do you get?04:33
supershorthow to i extract and install this realvnc program04:33
pocketdrummerWell, I guess he'll be back, he quit before I explained the rest.....04:33
cptnapalmack, have04:33
goodmamiyeah ok thanks anyway04:33
jijutmi did apt-get install xdm04:33
montecylex what are u talking about sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree were do i go to install it at?04:33
badkittyiKap: That with the medibuntu codecs and your multimedia will be basically complete04:33
jijutmand chose that as the default..04:33
jijutmI can login now..04:34
cptnapalmDon't think xdm would screw up X itself...04:34
pocketdrummerHow many people here have an nVidia card and cannot use the default nv drivers that come with Ubuntu?04:34
jijutmbut the familiar themed ubuntu login is no more available04:34
cptnapalmlogin on the console?04:34
Blue_SassleyWhat is a program I can use to download stuff on to a iPod... one that has the Apple OS on it still04:34
jokie51um, you can always use the nv driver for 2d things04:34
cptnapalmah, so xdm is not even starting?04:34
Blue_Sassley!ipod > Blue_Sassley04:34
jokie51i even had the nv driver running an 8800GTX04:34
Starnestommyjijutm: try sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm04:34
jokie51yea it was slow04:34
jokie51but until i figured out how to use the restricted devices manager, its all i had04:35
_Oz_can anyone recommend a recent virtualbox tutorial for me?04:35

Blue_SassleySorry guys ubutu has the answer04:35

acee1234jack_sparrow: that killed my gnome display manager04:35
cptnapalmjijutm, do try what Starnestommy mentioned04:35
jijutmok will try that..04:35
cylexmonte: you want to install the flash player right?04:35
Jack_Sparrowacee1234: It should not have..  IT is from the ati page...04:35
badkitty_Oz_: Do you need one? It's not too complicated.. the hardest part is figuring out what additional package needs to be installed after it gives you an error the first time you try to run it04:35
jijutmthanks guys.. will check that and be back soon..04:36
cylexmonte: so that's one way or better way is this link I'll give you04:36

_Oz_One other question: is virtualbox definitively "better" than vmware?04:36
cptnapalmAnybody have a widescreen monitor and get the console NOT running off the screen?04:36
_Oz_as in faster, more stable, etc.04:36
pocketdrummersupershort: what are you extracting?04:37
acee1234"Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'. Without the GNOME settings manager running, some....."04:37
badkitty_Oz_: LOL, well ... It's a matter of opinion, but I found virtualbox much easier to get working with linux04:37
cylexthinman1189: dunno.. keep trying that tutorial.. or something04:37
Jack_Sparrowacee1234: Glad you got video working... gotta go..04:37

montehow do i do that04:39
cylexbruenig: to create it.. tar -cvf filename.tar.gz04:39
cptnapalmCompiz would need the composite entry wouldn't it?04:39
montei am new at this04:39
pocketdrummercptnapalm: What's your monitor's native resolution? Mine is 1680x1050.04:39
bruenigcylex, no but I mean p means to preserve the permission whilst creating an archive I thought04:40
cptnapalmpocketdrummer: mine's the same :(04:40
cylexbruenig: I think its without permission but not sure04:40
pocketdrummercptnapalm: That can't be it then... what about your video card?04:40

Ashnalso ive found something that annoys me, which is that if im playing music of some sort, and my computer comes under a heavy processing load, the music will skip, is there a way to prevent this?04:41
bruenigAshnal, no04:41
monteokay so i go to the website and do wat04:41
jokie51Ashnal: yes. upgrade your CPU to a dual core/quad core. something capable of multithreading.04:42
cptnapalmAshnal: only if you up the nice level of the other stuff you are doing, I think.04:42
cylexmonte: read the Documentation04:42
Dr_willisHmm. I never have those issues. with my Audigy2zs card.04:42
jokie51dual core CPU's are dirt cheap.04:42
cylexmonte: cant teach you everything over the irc04:42
jokie51Theres no reason not to have at least 2 cores.04:42
Jack_Sparrowacee1234: Run fglrxinfo and make sure it says ati and NOT mesa....04:42

russHello, can someone explain (or make an educated guess) why after installing KDE on my ubuntu (gutsy) system, the "places" menu in gnome doesn't work any more (fails to open a window)?04:46
cptnapalmpocketdrummer: I think it has to do with how the console is set up from the get go.  I remember way back when I compiled my own kernels I always included the framebuffer driver in the kernel.  The default kernels now only build them as a module and don't know when that module loads.04:46
pocketdrummerbob_ hi :D04:46

russjokie51 great, wish I knew that before doing it04:47

badkittyjokie51: ahh admin....04:48
Jack_Sparrowacee1234: What did fglrxinfo say04:48
acee1234someone said something about apic noapic04:48
cptnapalmacee1234: Not sure... using nVidia?04:48
bob__put them in the /etc/fonts dir04:48
jokie51russ: yes. :) remove KDE.04:48
cptnapalm/etc/fonts is for font config stuff...04:48
acee1234Jack_Sparrow: OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X140004:49
_Oz_acee: that's CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow.04:49
jokie51It's a total PITA getting KDE to operate properly with Gnome on the same machine, unless you want to toil and burn for 1500 hours reinstalling applications by the dozen with support for both.04:49
Jack_Sparrowacee1234: good.. you should read that page I linked..it will get you going04:49
russjokie51 really?04:49
acee1234might you resend that link Captain?04:49
cptnapalmacee1234: I seem to remember something about vblank having something to do with that... which sounded just like vsync04:49
pocketdrummeronyx: there's also windows fonts in Add/Remove if you wanted those.04:49
jokie51russ: yes. generally when one is a KDE user he/she doesn't use Gnome, and vice versa. :P04:50
jokie51Kubuntu is much easier to start with04:50
jokie51its the same OS, just built around KDE04:50
Onyxpocketdrummer: Nah, I've got the windows fonts installed; just looking for how to install custom fonts and the like.04:50
_Oz_what's the diff essentially, between KDE and gnome?04:50
jokie51_Oz_: Well, for one, Gnome is for retarded people. :)04:50
Jack_Sparrow_Oz_: Different desktops and basic app selection04:50
jokie51Or at least that is what Mr. Torvalds says.04:51
Jack_Sparrowjokie51: Please dont do that04:51
pocketdrummerjokie51:  you're hurting my heart man :_(04:51
jokie51Gnome is oversimplified.04:51
cptnapalmOdd thing is when Gnome and KDE started out, they looked almost exactly the same... Now they look rather different since Gnome changed the default to a Windows/Mac hybrid interface04:51
jokie51It's insulting to Linux users.04:51
Starnestommyjokie51: so is trolling04:51
bob__i went 2 an apple store 2day and asked if i could buy the OS and install it on a pentium box and it took like 4-5 ppl asking eachother if it could b done04:51

thinman1189hey everyone. i'm having some trouble with my internet. i switched from wireless to wired to flash my firmware. i didn't actually flash it, that's not the issue. anyway i went to go reconnect to my wireless and i can't for some reason. what's the command to reboot my net? i tried rebooting my computer but it won't work. i have a Belkin F5D7000 using ndis wrapper.05:01
Scunizipapuccino1, ok you've got my curiosity.. how to I make a window "negative"05:01
montejokie51: do i search that in the add/remove programs05:02
jokie51fontforge is the rendering engine for wine05:02
papuccino1Just press superkey + n Scunizi05:02
jokie51thats all05:02
jokie51monte: what?05:02
Infinito_let me ask, now everytime I try to change the desktop visual effects from 'none' to any other level, the frames of all windows change, the closing and minimizing buttons shift to the top left... how can I preserve the compiz stuff but revert that? a print of my screen ->http://img181.imageshack.us/img181/1438/screenshotik8.png05:02
papuccino1You have to activate it in the compiz gnome manager.05:02
pocketdrummercptnapalm: That's pretty funny. It's amazing how fast you can get Ubuntu working on a new system (as long as you don't hit any weird roadblock along the way.)05:02
badkittydanbhfive: How come NONE of a tutorials say that?? arg05:02
Jangaridoes anyone know how to install the mp3/ogg vorbis libraries for sox?05:02
montefor the dvd to play?05:02
zelrikriandopocketdrummer: I showed my video of ubuntu this morning to my friend...this afternoon he had ubuntu installed+ Vbox(+XP)05:02
Scunizipapuccino1, do you have to have all the bells and whistles turned on?05:02
papuccino1Scunizi: System > Preferences > Advanced Desktop Settings05:02
amenadoSeraph-> associate meant it has established a handshake and connected whereby the ap gives you and ip address and communicate with the ap05:02
badkittydanbhfive: I suppose it might say that in the manual... but the tutorials SHOULD have that too ... wheres my pacifier?05:02
cptnapalmpocketdrummer: Its something I like to throw at Windows fanatics when they babble about hardware support.05:03
papuccino1Scunizi, no, I only have the ones I like for instance, while holding the windows key and mousewheel up I zoom in dynamically. WHICH IS SUPER USEFUL.05:03
amenadoSeraph->  perhaps a tutorial on what is a wireless connection is in order for you..05:03
danbhfivebadkitty: I only use mysql for drupal, and it was in the directions I followed, maybe you need some ubuntu specific tutorials05:03
jokie51ok theres no freakin way in h*ll i cankeep up with all the questions05:03
Scunizipapuccino1, yes  I use that too.. can I make any window negative?  It's not working in xchat05:03
jokie51if people have something to ask me please pm it to me05:03
jokie51so much to answer, so little time :P05:03
jokie51im only 1 person.05:03
badkittydanbhfive: Thats where I found them.. on UBUNTU sites! anyhow, you like drupal better than Joomla?05:04
papuccino1Maybe you don't have it activated.05:04
pocketdrummerinfinito_: enabling compiz Macifies your windows? Did you install compiz separately or is it the one that comes with Ubuntu?05:04
papuccino1Scunizi, search for it in the Gnome Compiz Manager.05:04
Scunizipapuccino1, never mind I found it.. in ccsm.. nice!05:04
cptnapalmpocketdrummer: Its always sad when someone is new and no one can help because the hardware maker is a jackass about support... I mean here is someone trying something new and through no fault of their own, can't get it running05:04
ninjabob7has anyone played vdrift?05:04
=== Whitesmith is now known as FBIGuy
papuccino1Scunizi, how about it huh? Incredible, so much easier on the eyes. -cries-05:04
Scunizipapuccino1, reminds me of irssi05:04
j1solutionshello all05:05
papuccino1Ok, see ya gotta go05:05
danbhfivebadkitty: yeah, im stuck on drupal too.  I made a custom module for it.  But, I found drupal simpler in its layout.   I remember a contest between a bunch of them, and drupal and joomla tied05:05
ninjabob7is anyone knowledgeable about opengl?05:05
pocketdrummercptnapalm: Actually, I'm in the middle of that exact issue right now. I have a Creative X-Fi that just WON'T work properly.05:05
cptnapalmninjabob7: John Carmack of iD software?  ;)05:05
Scunizininjabob7, ask a definitive question .. get a devinitive answer :)05:05
ninjabob7anyone in here, that is?05:05
badkittydanbhfive: Oh.. I just found more support for joomla, and easier to get it started .. could be different now? Who knows...Joomla is great though.. The just had a new relase too05:06
ninjabob7because I'm not sure if this issue is a bug in the game or something fixable05:06
cptnapalmpocketdrummer: Which is odd.. as Creative are the same people that came up with OpenAL so as NOT to have to deal with multitudes of different audio architecture05:06
_Oz_I can't get VM to start05:06
Scunizibadkitty,  do you know of any online tutorials for changing the theme in joomla? or creating your own?05:06
IceGuest_75hello all05:06
thinman1189i switched from wireless to wired to flash my firmware. i didn't actually flash it, that's not the issue. anyway i went to go reconnect to my wireless and i can't for some reason.  i tried rebooting my computer but it won't work. i have a Belkin F5D7000 using ndis wrapper.05:07
cptnapalmninjabob7: Not sure this would be the best place for something that specific...  I'm still coping with void pointers...05:07
badkittyScunizi: To change the theme, you download new ones and install them into the directory .. To make your own, the best way is to be a CSS and PHP god.. if not, they have some software you can use to give the basic syntax for what is required, then you can fill in the rest using html or some WYSIWYG tool05:08
_Oz_you around, badkitty?05:08
eu4eaIn vlc I don't get any sound when playing avi files, I have install all of the plugins for vlc, but still nothing, can anyone help?05:08
pocketdrummercptnapalm: Up until earlier this month, they didn't even have a working driver (which sorta works with OSS... sorta). It's a little depressing considering the Audigy 2 ZS I got rid of worked perfectly.05:08
cptnapalmthinman1189: what does ifconfig -a give you in the console?05:08
Jack_SparrowThug-life: Please do not post a link without a description of the problem05:08
Infinito_pocketdrummer, it's the one that comes with ubuntu, yes it does.. and well, I installed emerald too although the themes are not working.. The windows changing thing happened when I clicked on "GL Desktop", immediately some conflict wtih compiz came up, compiz was disabled. I enabled it again, but the windows thing remained :(05:08
_Oz_badkitty: getting errors when I try to start a vm05:08
badkitty_Oz_: OK PM me ok?05:08
K_dallasQ: What package should i install for this (checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!), thanks05:08
_Oz_badkitty: I did05:08
cptnapalmpocketdrummer: Damn that does suck...05:08
_Oz_...  you didn't reply05:08

erichHello, I recently installed an SB Audigy 2 ZS soundcard but now the only sound I get is in xmms, which does sound really good and the surround even works, anyone know why it only works in xmms?05:09
pocketdrummerInfinito_: You know, last time I tried to go beyond the default Compiz settings provided in Ubuntu, I bricked the OS. Scary stuff for me.05:09
badkittyBRB folks!!05:10
_Oz_my machine is now massively messed up05:10
bob__my last name is upandowninthewater05:10
_Oz_something vm did made ubuntu very unhappy05:10
IceGuest_75just a quick question 7.10 will not let me connect to the net shows the icon but no light on the router as it is not conecting.also this is my first instalation of ubuntu should i load 7.04 as I read there are very few problems with this version as far as conection issuses05:10
montelibdvdcss libdvdnav libdvdrea were do i go to get them ?05:10
Scunizi_Oz_, which vm manager are you using?05:10
Infinito_pocketdrummer, yeah now I wish I haven't messed around with that :/05:11
Dr_williserich,  try the bmpx [ player. - Its possible xmms is  dupliocating the front speakers to the rear giving surround sound.05:11
craigbass1976Ok, turns out I had a bad cable, and somehow the MBR got hosed.  I've got that all fixed, and can boot again to my feisty install.  However, I can't log in.  Getting the "last sesion only lasted 10 seconds" bit.  CtrlAtlF1 takes me to a terminal where I CAN log in, but the text is so big it's useless.  Tried restarting gdm, to no avail05:11
_Oz_virtualbox, scunizi05:11
amenadoIceGuest_75-> what icon are you referring to?05:11
thiemstermonte: have you tried apt-get?05:11
K_dallasStarnestommy, i dont seem to have that library. I have a few different ones with qt3 and qt4 which are already installed05:11
Jack_Sparrowpocketdrummer: http://linuxfud.wordpress.com/2007/02/14/how-to-reset-ubuntugnome-settings-to-defaults-without-re-installing/05:11
erichMaybe, but no sound works in any other programs at all05:11
Scunizi_Oz_, sorry I don't know that one.. I'm using vmware server.. pretty easy.05:11
Dr_willisIgot an audigy 2Zs Sound works good for me in all my apps.05:11
erichSurround is not the issue05:11
montewat is apt-get?05:11
_Oz_I'm starting to think vmware is looking pretty good05:11
amenadocraigbass1976-> try ctrl +alt+ -  and see if it recyles through font sizes05:11
Jack_Sparrowpocketdrummer: That is for the next time you make a change that causes issues05:11
thiemstermonte:it's the way to install things in debian-based distros (look it up in wikipedia)05:11
Dr_willismonte,  time to really read some of the ubuntu starter guides. :)05:11
Dr_willis!apt-get | monte05:12
ubotumonte: APT 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)05:12
pocketdrummerJack_Sparrow: O.O Does that actually work?! If so, you are my hero.05:12
Jack_SparrowYEs it works05:12
cptnapalmmonte: search for them in the repositories.  There will be a file which installs with libdvdread (I think) that you run and that will install libdvdcss205:12
Scunizimonte, apt-get is what you use at the command line to install packages.05:12
pocketdrummerJack_Sparrow: You are my hero!05:12
craigbass1976amenado, no love there05:12
Jack_Sparrowpocketdrummer: You do lose your icons on the taskbar but everything else is factory fresh05:12
_Oz_ubuntu no longer boots05:12
Jangarican someone tell me how to get libmp3lame?05:12
monteo see i kno wat synaptic is lol....05:12
Scunizi_Oz_, with server you can install any os from cd or iso. with player you're limited to preconfigured vm's05:13
thiemstermonte: (example command "sudo apt-get install libdvdcss")05:13
uhohzombiesany idea why gutsy x64 will not install? i386 works fine as long as i choose safe graphics mode, but x64 reboots upon kernal direct mapping tables05:13
_Oz_wow, that was a spectacular failure.  everyone: recommending you DO NOT install virtualbox05:13
amenadocraigbass1976-> try to remove splash from your grub05:13
OmletteJangari: sudo apttitude install libmp3lame05:13
OmletteI think.05:13
craigbass1976I've also noticed that the date is march 200505:13
cptnapalmmonte: Just look for them in synaptic.  Should be there05:13
Holmes89hey can anyone help me with some server quesions?05:13
amenado_Oz_-> ahem, not everyone, i like virtual box05:13
Holmes89I'm new with command line05:13
craigbass1976yet the motherboard knows the right date... not sure if this is important05:13
montei tryed and there not05:13
Holmes89I just need to update my web page file but I don't know how to05:13
_Oz_amenado: it just hosed my entire ubuntu install05:13
craigbass1976Holmes89, perhaps.  WHat's the issue05:14
_Oz_good lord05:14
Jack_SparrowInfinito_: Did you see the post to pocketdrummer?05:14
_Oz_dunno how, but it did05:14
monteonly one in there close to it is libdv405:14
amenado_Oz_-> what were you doing?05:14
craigbass1976Holmes89, you can vi it05:14
uhohzombiesbetter yet, is there any worthwhile reason to use x64, despite having a 64 bit processor05:14
ScuniziHolmes89, web page file?  you mean index.htm05:14
Jangarigrr, i must not have the right repos set up for the lame encoder05:14
_Oz_amenado: just following the install instructions is all.05:14
StarnestommyHolmes89: actually, vim.  it's a text editor05:14
cptnapalmI don't think libmp3lame is in the repos...05:14
_Oz_now ubuntu literally won't boot.  insane05:14
JangariCouldn't find any package whose name or description matched "libmp3lame"05:14
Holmes89yeah I want to copy my assets folder and all of my web pages I've made05:14
pocketdrummerInfinito_: In case you didn't see what Jack_Sparrow said, check this out, it's golden... http://linuxfud.wordpress.com/2007/02/14/how-to-reset-ubuntugnome-settings-to-defaults-without-re-installing/05:15
Holmes89to the /var/www/ folder05:15
amenado_Oz_-> you were just installing and has it ever completed or you are still stuck on the install?05:15
ScuniziHolmes89, vi can be complicated for the first time user.. you could also use gedit..05:15
cptnapalmStarnestommy: I'm not sure vi is the best bet for someone who can't yet do basic shell stuff...05:15
_Oz_it appeared to install ok05:15
craigbass1976Holmes89, heh... command line text editor.  Pretty much you type vi filename, hit i once you're in, do the edits, and hit Esc, then :wq to write and quit.  If you screw up or get nervous, hit :q! instead to quit without writing05:15
Starnestommycptnapalm: maybe emacs or nano05:15
Holmes89how will I use gedit to do this though?05:15
_Oz_it kept giving me an error msg when starting a vm05:15
_Oz_so I rebooted05:15
_Oz_and that's when all hell broke loose05:15
Infinito_hm I'll look that up thx jack-desktop pocketdrummer05:15
chubs730vim is nicer05:15
craigbass1976Holmes89, is the web server in front of you, or remote?05:15
jack-desktopwhat Infinito_ ?05:15
Holmes89in front05:16
Jack_Sparrowpocketdrummer: THere is your test case but I have had two people here today alone that had this work for them, plus I tried it on my own system first for a test.. Yes it works05:16
cptnapalmStarnestommy: If he's in X, then I'd recommend just using gedit... for the moment, to him...05:16
_Oz_is vmware a little more robust and less prone to this kind of thing?05:16
ScuniziHolmes89, do you have a copy of index.html seperate from where it is on the server?05:16
Infinito_jack-desktop, wrong guy sorry05:16
_Oz_even if it's slower, I think I'd want something more stable even at a performance hit.05:16
Holmes89I don't have an interface05:16
Infinito_thx Jack_Sparrow05:16
Holmes89I have it on a thumb drive05:16
Jordan_Uwhen I try to use perl style regular expressions with grep (  grep --perl-regexp ) I get the error : "grep: The -P option is not supported" but it's in the man page as an option, is there something that I need to do to add support for this?05:16
ScuniziHolmes89, interface?  you want to edit it live?05:16
thiemstercan i dual boot windows 2000 (dell edition) with my already installed Ubuntu 7.10?05:16
craigbass1976Oh, well you can just sudo chown -R holmes:holmes /var/www/ and you'll be able to use gedit and edit the files05:16
chubs730thiemster: yes05:16
Scunizithiemster, yes05:16
_Oz_vboxdrv is apparently screwing up the boot05:17
thiemsterchubs730: how?05:17
Jack_SparrowInfinito_: One line in cli and restart x, come right back and let us know when you are done05:17
IceGuest_75ok should i install 7.04 to take care of my internet connection or try to fix 7.10? anyone05:17
Holmes89I'm sorry I mean I am using just command line, I haven't installed a gui for the server05:17
_Oz_linux won't boot except in low graphics mode05:17
thiemsterchubs730: I tried it once and the windows 2000 installation failed05:17
pocketdrummerJack_Sparrow: I've lost count of how many times I've reformatted to fix things. This is probably the best bit of information I've received in a looooong time.05:17
_Oz_arrrrgh why'd I do this why why why05:17
ScuniziHolmes89, then vi or nano.. nano is simpler05:17
craigbass1976Holmes89, then you'd either have to set up a nfs share so you could get at it from another box, or learn vi05:17
chubs730thiemster: you'll have to partition beforehand in linux, using gparted05:17
Jordan_Uthiemster, Be careful though, sometimes the OEM restore CD's reformat the entire drive05:17
thiemsterchubs730: you mean with the gparted livecd?05:17
chubs730thiemster: you'll most likely have to use the livecd yes05:18
amenado_Oz_-> not all can afford an high rez capable graphics card..twas designed to work with older machines05:18
thiemsterchubs730: after i partition, do i just install windows 2000 the normal way?05:18
Jack_Sparrowpocketdrummer: It is not for everything..  mostly things like messing up a theme or other settings in gnome05:18
Holmes89I have ubuntu desktop installed as a separate partition on the computer I'm using as a server is there a way I can mount the drive to change the file?05:18
chubs730thiemster: shrink your linux partition and format it to ntfs, and windows 2000 should recognize it and install05:18
_Oz_amenado: tell that to the guys who built compiz-fusion05:18
uhohzombiesmy gutsy x64 install is rebooting my pc when 'kernel mapping tables', i can't get it to install. any ideas? is x64 even worth using over i386 for home desktop purposes?05:18
thiemsterchubs730: is there anyway to do it without deleting all my linux stuff?05:18
chubs730thiemster: and then you'll have to use the ubuntu livecd to rebuild grub, but that's fairly easy05:18
supershorthow can i cancel all software installations05:18
jokie51everyone can afford a "high rez graphics card"05:19
jokie51heres an example.05:19
Scunizi!mount > Holmes05:19
pocketdrummerJack_Sparrow: That's ok, it just gives me another option before throwing in the towel.05:19
amenado_Oz_-> compiz has a minimum, ubuntu install has much much less requirements05:19
craigbass1976Holmes89, yes, nfs share is like windows sharing for linux.05:19
Scunizi!mount > Holmes8905:19
Jack_Sparrow_Oz_: Chill... look for a backup of your old xorg05:19
Jordan_Upocketdrummer, You almost never *need* to do a full reinstall to fix a problem05:19
chubs730thiemster: yes, gparted will automatically do that for you, it shows you what you've used and you can just drag the space smaller05:19
jokie51NVIDIA Geforce FX5900: $5905:19
chubs730thiemster: unless you've used up almost all your disk space05:19

Jack_SparrowJordan_U: Not the same card05:20
chubs730thiemster: yeah that'll be fine then, just boot into gparted, shrink your ext2 or ext3 or whatever you're using for ubuntu, and then format the blank space as ntfs05:20
Jordan_UJack_Sparrow, Sorry, misread05:20
Jack_Sparrow_Oz_: Are you in gui.. low res?05:20
chubs730thiemster: no problem05:20
craigbass1976Scunizi, hey, I've never tried nano before.  Thanks for the tip05:20
pocketdrummerJordan_U: Well, sometimes something happens where programs stop working. Like deskbar died and wouldn't come back, Ardour would close itself after opening. Things like that. Reinstalling and even completely removing and reinstalling didn't work. Do you guys know how to fix things like that?05:20
ScuniziHolmes89, why did you create a seperate partion for the server install. you could have included that with the normal Ubuntu install or done it in a virtual machine..05:20
Jordan_UJack_Sparrow, I don't now but let me look a second05:20
Scunizicraigbass1976, np.. it's saved me several times.05:21
Jack_SparrowJordan_U: dont bother05:21

supershortit says this 'setting up vnccommon' and it does nothing but stop me from installing other shit05:21

Jack_Sparrowacee1234: Common problem is wrong v/h refresh rates in the xorg05:25
chubs730papuccino1: what do you mean?05:25
pocketdrummerscunizi, the mouse configuration, surprisingly. I have a G7 Mouse and I'm trying to get all the buttons to work. Right now, I'm using btnx (which halfway works).05:25
cptnapalmacee1234: What kind of card is it?05:25
papuccino1There's : 2.4   and  2.5 (both maintaned the Ubuntu community) and then there's 2.5 maintained by Canonical LTD.05:25
papuccino1Sorry didn't explain well. There's three in the Repositories.05:25
_Oz_badkitty: all I did was follow the instructions, then ubuntu wouldn't boot when I rebooted05:25
papuccino1Applications> Add/Remove05:26
acee1234cptnapalm: ati x140005:26
chubs730papuccino1: ahh, IDLE isn't vital, but 2.5 community or canonical should be fine05:26
_Oz_it was that driver package I think05:26
Scunizipocketdrummer, can't help with the specifics but now you know that there is an error in what you're trying to do.05:26
_Oz_I got it booted back up but all of my gfx settings are gone05:26
acee1234Jack_Sparrow: solution?05:26
chubs730papuccino: unless you have python 2.4 of course05:26
cptnapalmacee1234: know the make and model of the monitor?05:26
papuccino1chubs: what do you mean isn't vital? Please explain a bit, I know I can still program in Terminal, is that what you mean?05:26
j_humphreyhow do i install gtk themes?05:26
owen1how to find the video card i have?05:26
Holmes89how will I use nfs or nano to copy over my html code and assets folder?05:26
_Oz_trying to restore from xorg.conf backup now05:26
_Oz_recommend you DO NOT use virtual box05:26
Starnestommyowen1: lspci05:26
Jack_Sparrowacee1234: Find the v/h for your specific monitor and edit the xorg..again..:)05:26
papuccino1j_humphry: download Emerald from synaptic05:26
Scuniziowen1, lspci05:26
spud213can someone please post a link where i can read on how to fix my net connection in 7.10 thanks05:26
acee1234cptnapalm: laptop um..... dell e150505:26
Holmes89I'm confused about what this can do for me05:26
amenado_Oz_-> stop trolling05:26
owen1Scunizi: thanks05:27
badkitty_Oz_: That is very strange...Seriously Ive never had a problem with it.. I'll even make a screen shot of it if you want05:27
_Oz_I am not trolling.05:27
Jack_Sparrowacee1234: Same difference..05:27
chubs730papuccino1: well, IDLE is simply a text editor geared towards python05:27
cptnapalmacee1234: hrrm...05:27
erichI installed a new soundcard and now I only have sound in xmms, any idea what might cause this?05:27
j_humphreypapuccino1, i downloaded a gtk theme, but its in a bunch of folders, how do i get it in a .emeralrd file?05:27
_Oz_hey, how do I edit xorg.conf and save it as root?05:27
papuccino1chubs: So IDLE is simply like Gedit? All it does is provide color syntax for Python?05:27
_Oz_using text editor in the gui?05:27
chubs730papuccino1: it may actually suit you better to use another IDE, because IDLE does a few things for you taht are unconventional05:27
Jack_Sparrow_Oz_: You are not trolling, but you are on a bit of a rant.. And I am your buddy telling you this05:27
papuccino1chubs: Recommendations perhaps?05:28
chubs730papuccino1: yes almost, but it also has a terminal to test python code05:28
cptnapalmAnybody remember what that app is that lets you choose your monitor from a bunch of presets?05:28
pocketdrummer_Oz_, I open a terminal, type sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf05:28
chubs730papuccino1: i use geany05:28
_Oz_Yeah, it's just that damn virtualbox...  I had this install set up perfectly...  I was just really annoyed that it messed me up so badly,05:28
SeraphIf you're trying to connect to a WEP manually, how can you select Password/Passphrase, as opposed to Hex or ASCII?05:28
Starnestommycptnapalm: somewhere in System > Administration05:28
acee1234ok nother issue if i try to restart x only my background shows and the comp freezes05:28
_Oz_But I've got it under control. :)05:28
papuccino1j_humphry: Open emerald, and choose import. Browse to the location and hopefully you'll see it there to import.05:28
ScuniziHolmes89, nano is for editing files that you can get to. It won't copy anything.  You can mount the other partition and get to it. I just can't explain exactly how to do that.05:28
montelibdvdcss/libdvdnav/libdvdread were do i find them they are not listed in the synaptic so were else or how do i do it05:28
papuccino1j_humphry: If the file is comatible...05:28
Jack_Sparrow_Oz_: gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg   or gksudo thunar05:28
papuccino1chubs: Is that how you spell it "geany"05:28
cptnapalm_Oz_: open a command line and sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf05:28
badkitty_Oz_: sudo dpkg-reconfigure /etc/X11/xorg.conf ???05:29
craigbass1976Has anyone else run into the "session only lasted 10 seconds" message?  I've been reading around and haven't found theright answer yet05:29
chubs730papuccino1: and simply running python  "codething" in the terminal will get you the interactive thing just like idle05:29
amenadoSeraph-> you have already proven you can associate and connect using plaing text ie without wep/wpa/leal encryption?05:29
badkitty_Oz_: Or you just want to edit it?05:29
spud213thanks all for all your help very useful05:29
cptnapalmStarnestommy: Ah, found it.  Thanks05:29
craigbass1976Oh man, it's 12:30.  Forget I asked--- I'll look into it tomorrow05:29
Seraphamenado: Yes.05:29
chubs730papuccino1: yeah, just look in the repos (add/remove programs) at IDE's05:29
_Oz_how can I rename the backup file to the current file05:29
_Oz_using the terminal?05:29
badkittysudo cp name of old file name of new file05:29
pocketdrummerWhat's the difference between sudo and gksudo?05:29
chubs730papuccino1: synaptic will have more too05:29
Starnestommypocketdrummer: gksudo is graphical05:30
Jack_Sparrow!gksudo Very Important05:30
chubs730pocketdrummer: sudo is commandline, gksudo is graphical05:30
cptnapalmacee1234: Ok, try this (No guarantees though)  Open System>Administration>Screen and Graphics05:30
ubotuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)05:30
badkitty_Oz_: sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup /etc/X11/xorg.conf05:30
amenadoSeraph-> next is to find out if your wifi driver supports such encryption, read up from the vendors web site about its capabilities05:30
acee1234cptnapalm:  ok05:30
papuccino1chubs: Yeah I know you can run Python in terminal, but having to write "python test.py" everytime I want to test a module is troubling....05:30
owen1i want to connect pc to tv. do i need to do anything other than connecting the cables?05:30
cptnapalmacee1234: Ok, Now click on Model05:30
badkittypocketdrummer: AFAIK gk is used for graphical operations sudo is for command line05:30
Scunizimonte, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats05:30
chubs730papuccino1: well just stick with IDLE then, I use it sometimes myself, i was just saying it's not necessary05:30
_Oz_I am rebooting now, badkitty and jack05:31
Jordan_Upapuccino1, What are you trying to do ?05:31
_Oz_hopefully this works05:31
chubs730papuccino1: either 2.5 will work05:31
_Oz_sorry again about the rant05:31
Ashfire908i had installed ubuntu 7.10 on this old computer that had the clock set to the future. (havn't used it in years) i ran ntpdate-debian, and now all the files are in the future and sudo doesn't work.05:31
Jack_Sparrowcya tomorrow05:31
pocketdrummerJack_Sparrow, This is new to me and concerning. So, I type !gksudo if I'm working with graphical (non-terminal) applications?05:31
_Oz_how did it manage to screw me up so bad? I followed the directions precisely05:31
_Oz_first time I've come across that in ubuntu05:31
papuccino1chubs: I'll try Geany though. Sounds interesting with the code autocompleting. :P It's aimed towards Python though right?05:31
densonegetting an install error with Ubuntu/ Intel 64 Bit. Right at the very end it say "cannot install Grub on HD0"05:31

chubs730papuccino1: not aimed towards it, just supports it among others05:31
Scunizimonte, np05:31
papuccino1Jordan: Oh nothing much, just learning along, first time this week using Python.05:31
badkitty_Oz_: I dunno .. maybe it was something else?? Im gonna finish my set up again Ill let u know how it goes05:31
papuccino1chubs: Ok, cool.05:31
Nuke_something's accessing the hard drive... over and over and over repeatedly. what's a good way to figure out what it is05:31
pocketdrummerJack_Sparrow, So, just to be sure, you need the ! before gksudo, correct?05:31
Jordan_Uuhohzombies, To that last question, probably not05:32
cptnapalmacee1234: I'm going to go see if I can find out what kind of screen your model has.  BRB05:32
Nuke_and no, 'top' doesn't sort by IO usage05:32
_Oz_every time I boot GRUB bootloader defaults to "memtest" instead of my standard ubuntu05:32

uhohzombiesthanks, jordan_u05:32
papuccino1Jordan: Yeah I read about it. I think it's to make the module a executable of sorts correct?05:32
chubs730densone: jesus christ partition that05:32

cptnapalmacee1234: Do you know if you are using the ATI restricted drivers or not?05:36
Jordan_Upapuccino1, If you put "#!/usr/bin/env perl" or simply "#!/usr/bin/perl" at the beginning of a text file and set the permissions to executable with chmod then the shell will pass that file to python if you to to "execute" the file, if you put "#!/usr/bin/env perl" it will try to run it with perl05:36

winnerrlz93i have it i'm just stuck with something05:39
_Oz_I am going to start this ubuntu install over again from scratch05:39
Scuniziowen1, depends on your video card and tv input.. my tv has a vga input and hdmi which is basically the same as dvi.  adaptor needed.05:39
_Oz_something's majorly wrong05:39
LinuxMercedesubd: Take apart your laptop, get some canned air, and clean the dust out05:39
_Oz_luckily I was just fooling around with that install05:39
_Oz_for compiz effects05:39
rainwalker_Oz_: fresh installs FTW05:39

ubdheating problem about cpu frequency handlers but i coulnd understand how to solve the problem05:40
_Oz_jordan, thanks for the offer to help, but that wasn't my main problem05:40
owen1Scunizi: it looks like 2 small rounded holes.05:40
Jordan_U_Oz_, Specifically, is the first non-commented line "default         0"05:40
neetoI asked this in #apache to no avail, so I'm gonna try my luck here: on apache, how do you get your server to list hidden files over HTTP?05:40
owen1Scunizi: i think it's svideo?05:40
rainwalker_Oz_: For The Win05:40
densoneis there a good guide on manually partitioning ?05:40
_Oz_ah. :)05:41
ubdtherer utilities like cpudyn etc but synaptic doesnt let me o install them to keep another program05:41
owen1Scunizi: maybe it's 3 holes.05:41
cptnapalmacee1234: Still there?05:41
badkitty_Oz_: Hmm Yeha I am booting Backtrack2 right now from my virtualbox05:41
montescunizi: that website u gave me worked but it got half way and broke it say i ahve to broken packages how do i fix it05:41
LinuxMercedesubd: ok, well, that's weird.  Not sure what's wrong.  (although I can personally attest to cleaning the air ducts when your laptop overheats =])05:41
prohnacpan apparently needs root05:41
Scuniziowen1, is it a standard tv or lcd tv?  svideo is a round jack with multiple holes in it.  probaby 3-5 holes.. do yo have svideo out on the video card.?05:41
prohnahow do i do that from terminal?05:41
_Oz_badkitty: I think it must have been compiz not playing nicely with vm05:41
_Oz_I guess05:41
Starnestommyprohna: sudo cpan05:41
pocketdrummerDoes anyone have any Experience with Networking?05:41
Jordan_U!anyone | pocketdrummer05:42
_Oz_because it came back with lots of video problems05:42
ubotupocketdrummer: 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?05:42
cptnapalmpocketdrummer: what sort?05:42
_Oz_I can't get my nvidia drivers back05:42
Scunizimonte, i think there is an option in synaptic to check for broken packages and fix them..05:42
badkitty_Oz_: But I have the same compiz that you do.. what type of card do you have?05:42
_Oz_nvidia geforce 760005:42
monteo does anyone no were that is in the synaptic05:42
badkitty_Oz_: Mines a 7800 .. basically same card05:42
rainwalkerprohna: to use admin (root) privileges in the terminal, do "sudo" and then the command05:42
Scunizipocketdrummer, what's the question?05:42
montefor broken packages05:42
thiemsteris there any way to start an X display from the command line?05:42
Jordan_U_Oz_, I assume you are trying to run compiz / use the nvidia drivers in the host OS and not the guest?05:42
_Oz_there are lots of setting in compiz though05:42
badkittymonte: what are you looking for?05:42
_Oz_I had mine running pretty hot05:43

owen1Scunizi: it's standard tv. and no, i don't have svideo according to your description.05:43

Scuniziowen1, don't bother. it won't hook to it and actually display anything.05:43
thiemsterbadkitty: thx05:43
_Oz_pocketdrummer: very easy05:43
chubs730pocketdrummer: samba is your savior05:43
_Oz_just go to "printing" in system -> administration05:43
Jordan_Uthiemster, Yes, startx, xinit or "sudo invoke-rc.d gdm start" depending on what exactly you want to start along with X05:44
Scunizipocketdrummer, what you're interested in is samba.. I'll see if ubutu can help05:44
owen1Scunizi: i didn't understand your last message...05:44
_Oz_you don't even need samba to print to an xp machine from ubuntu, though05:44
Scunizi!samba | pocketdrummer05:44
ubotupocketdrummer: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and http://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.05:44

Jordan_Uthiemster, np05:44
owen1Scunizi: what kind of cable do i need?05:44
montebadkitty: were do i go to fix broken packages or does anyone kno05:44
pocketdrummerThanks, I'll give it a look. :D05:44
badkittymonte: I think you can do it from the command line.. but I dont know off hand Jordan_U?05:45
Jordan_Umonte, Broken in what way? Are you trying to file a bug or fix a problem on your own computer only?05:45
cptnapalmmonte: I think its sudo apt-get -f install05:45
Scuniziowen1, if your computer has a standard monitor output and your tv doesn't have svideo or hdmi or a vga input you won't be able to hook up to it. It simply won't convert the signals correctly IF you could find a cable.05:45
cptnapalmmonte: but I might be wrong05:45
Jordan_Ubadkitty, Do what?05:45
thiemsterDo ti-calculators (especially ti-84+ SE) work with ubuntu?05:45
cptnapalmmonte: but I don't think it would hurt anything at any rate.05:46
badkittyJordan_U: Hey what are the differences in stating x that you gave earlier05:46
chubs730monte: if your package manager is totally hose go for sudo dpkg --configure -a && sudo apt-get -f install05:46
=== macogw_ is now known as macogw
montehis is a major failure of your software management system. Please check for broken packages with synaptic, check the file permissions and correctness of the file '/etc/apt/sources.list' and reload the software information with: 'sudo apt-get update' and 'sudo apt-get install -f'.05:46
_Oz_compiz is the only logical explanation, badkitty.  I'm seeing lots of people have been using virtualbox without too much problem but I've seen in several places now (forums, tutorials, etc) everyone says don't use compiz with virtualbox.05:46
machrideri'm trying to install ircd-hybrid with SSL support.  can anyone help me?05:46
montethats wat it says in the add remoe thing when i try to get in it05:46
machriderout of the box, it doesn't appear to support SSL05:46
chubs730monte: try my previous advice05:47
chubs730monte: sudo dpkg --configure -a && sudo apt-get -f install05:47
chubs730in a terminal05:47
cptnapalmmonte: Try sudo apt-get -f install05:47
badkitty_Oz_: Hmm I dont buy it... Maybe I am just extremely lucky but all I had to do was sudp apt-get install virtualbox.. then add myself to the vbox user group and wahlah05:47
cptnapalmmonte: or ignore me and do what chubs730 says :)05:47
_Oz_badkitty: what other reason could there be?  I mean it totally trashed my install05:48
montelol its working05:48
_Oz_I am reinstalling from scratch right now on the computer that went down05:48
Jordan_Ubadkitty, xinit starts just X and xterm, no window manager now desktop environment ( you can't even move / resize the xterm window ), startx starts a gnome ( or whatever default DM ) session ( basically the same as xinit then running "gnome-session" ) "sudo invoke-rc.d gdm start" starts the GDM login screen that you get when you boot normally05:48
badkitty_Oz_: And I have a ton of other stuff running too like compiz, avant window navigato, screenlets..05:48
chubs730monte: np05:48
_Oz_and it has been advised repeatedly that you should not use compiz and virtualbox...05:48
_Oz_well, you might have a "lucky" combination of compiz features running while vb is running05:48
MunchkinguyHow can I stop mplayerplug.in from opening in its own window?05:48
_Oz_(what's navigato, btw?)05:49
cptnapalmmonte: awesomeness :)  I remember the first time I trashed my apt... I was a sad person... and stupid... I tried to hand edit the apt stuff05:49
gandhiiwhere are the icon files stored?          I'd like to change the icon for a link and am not sure where to look for other system icons.05:49
badkittyJordan_U: Wow thanks.. I guess I should learn that one with gdm start05:49
chubs730ctnapalm: hand editing, slackware, the good old days05:49
montelol thats funny05:49
badkittyJordan_U: Than Again, I am still reliant of the GUI but I do alot of work in terminal windows05:49
Jordan_Ubadkitty, np05:50
machridermy question in general is: do ubuntu packages *have* options?05:50
rainwalkergandhii: check in your .themes folder in your home directory, in each theme's folder, or look in /usr/share/pixmaps05:50
cptnapalmchubs730: hand editing, clueless luser.... ;)05:50
machriderand how do you see what the options are?05:50
BloodyScumi know this is a stupid question, sence iv been useing ubuntu for years... but i just removed my trash can from my bar and i cant figure out how to put it back..05:50
badkitty_Oz_: Well I have desktop cube, cube reflection, all the task switchers, .. most the fun eyecandy stuff is enabled (except the ones that cause conflicts with lesser cool ones)05:51
dez-------______--------HEIL HITLER!-------__-----__---05:51
BloodyScumok, almost a year i guess05:51
cptnapalmchubs730: I really did try to go and hand edit that stuff... I still can't believe what a moronic idea that was heh05:51
FloodBot3dez: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.05:51
chubs730bloodyscum: right blick, add to panel05:51
rainwalkerBloodyScum: right-click on the panel, click "add to panel" and re-add it05:51

Scunizimachrider, sometimes synaptic will recommend optional packages. but to answer you.. generally no.. options for a program are changed after install in the .conf file for that program.05:51
Jordan_Umachrider, Yes, not nearly as extensive as those of Gentoo if that is what you are wondering, and not for all packages, but you can change them with "sudo dpkg-reconfigure <package>"05:51
badkittyBloodyScum: Did youtry right clicking and adding to panel05:51
chubs730cptnapalm: eh oh well, it's not really that moronic as long as you've got a manual with you05:51
MasterShreknvm, forgot about the floodbots05:51
badkittychubs730: You too quick05:51
dezmastershrek you need to chill05:51
* cptnapalm thinks dez is a Bill gates fan...05:51
acee1234cptnapalm:  any luck?05:51
machriderJordan_U: i'm coming from gentoo, so yes, that's what i was thinking.  i want to enable SSL for ircd-hybrid, but it doesn't look possible05:51
MasterShrekdez, you need to not flood05:51
machriderJordan_U: i might just have to build it by hand.05:52
cptnapalmchubs730: Manual?  Manual?  What is this "manual" you speak of?  heh05:52
BloodyScumok, thanks.. lol, i cant believe i didnt think of that....05:52
cptnapalmacee1234: Ah, was wondering where you went.  Ok, got that thing open?05:52
acee1234cptnapalm:  it is using restricted drivers and direct render returns yes05:52
_Oz_badkitty: it's ok, I don't mind reinstalling it all too much05:52
acee1234cptnapalm:  yes05:52
_Oz_it's THIS computer that I'm currently on that I've set up for productivity05:52
devnullhmm, i did a brief google search, but is anyone familiar with a linux irc program that implements a single window multiple pane mdi type interface similar to (dare i say it) mirc?05:52
badkitty_Oz_: Ok, maybe you can try qemu or vmware05:52
cptnapalmacee1234: so 3d is good to go just resolution silliness?05:52
_Oz_that computer has an XP/ubuntu dual boot and I don't really need ubuntu on it05:52
LinuxMercedesdevnull: try xchat05:53
badkitty_Oz_: Although i cant believe yours got messed up.. You were running gutsy?05:53
_Oz_badkitty: I'll probably try virtualbox again just without the compiz05:53
_Oz_yes, gutsy05:53
Jordan_Umachrider, It's not, that is a compile time option ( though you can grab and rebuild the source package with apt-get source , not as convenient as Gentoo but not too hard and better integrated than installing from a source tar file )05:53
Scunizidevnull, irssi, xchat, bitchx05:53
chubs730cptnapalm: hah yeah i remember when i first started on linux and after failing miserably at things decided it was time to "rtfm"05:53
acee1234cptnapalm: yes05:53
badkitty_Oz_: Did you reconfigure xorg and everything05:53
devnulli am using gnome-xchat, is it capable of anything other than the default tabbed interface?05:53
machriderJordan_U: ok, i'll do that.  thanks.05:53
MasterShrekdevnull, use regular xchat, not gnome-xchat05:53
Jordan_Umachrider, np05:53
cptnapalmchubs730: Favorite sig of all time:  WWJD?  JWRTFM!05:53
_Oz_I just copied the backup xorg over the current xorg05:53
devnulli am wanting to be able to view all my channels at the same time05:53
devnullok i will try that05:53
_Oz_and it was still bollocks05:53
chubs730cptnapalm: haha, i've never seen that05:54
Scunizidevnull, would you like to see multiple connections at once.. ?  irssi from the command line does it well.05:54
j_humphreyhow do i use emerald to install themes?05:54
devnulldont really care about multiple connections, just multiple windows05:54
devnullerr channels05:54
cptnapalmacee1234: ok, what we're going to try is to select generic from the list on the right05:54
MasterShrekdevnull, right click on the channel tab or w/e and hit "Detach Tab"05:54
Scunizidevnull, that's actually what I ment..05:54
chubs730devnull: i'm using gnome-xchat with multiple channels right now05:54
acee1234cptnapalm: dont see generic option05:54
chubs730devnull: unless you mean different channels in different tabs05:55
cptnapalmacee1234: Ok, click where it says model05:55
chubs730devnull: they're on the left side05:55
acee1234cptnapalm:  ok05:55
cptnapalmacee1234: scroll up to the top on the left pane05:55
Scunizidevnull, for irssi.. it can be loaded sudo apt-get irssi then check out http://linuxreviews.org/software/irc/irssi/05:55
devnulldifferent channels in different windows so to speak. able to see all individual channel conversations at the same time05:55
MasterShrekdevnull, do what i told you, you can detach the tabs from xchat05:55
devnulland being the lazyass that i am, i am more interested in a graphical solution than a console one :)05:56
chubs730devnull: ahh, i see, no idea if it can do that, ignore me05:56
cptnapalmacee1234: top selection should be generic in bold05:56
acee1234cptnapalm: only generic listed is on the left screen but yes05:56
MasterShrekdevnull, i dont know if gnome-xchat can, from what ive heard its kinda dumbed down, but regular xchat can05:56
badkitty_Oz_: Are you sure it copied it over? You didn't try to reconfigure05:56
cptnapalmacee1234: ok, click that.05:56
acee1234cptnapalm: ok05:56
devnullit looks like gnome-xchat cant, i will install the regular xchat05:56
ScuniziMasterShrek, after detaching how do you reattach?05:56
cptnapalmacee1234: now in the right window should start off with LCD panels05:57
MasterShrekScunizi, no idea, i never do it heh05:57
acee1234cptnapalm:  yes05:57
_Oz_badkitty: yeah, I tried to reconfigure.  everything in ubuntu was majorly messed up.  I couldn't load any drivers...  video refused to get out of low res...  nothing worked.05:57
cptnapalmscroll down until you see LCD Panel 1680x105005:57
_Oz_it was like an atom bomb going off in there, or something.05:57
MasterShrekScunizi, xchat > attach window05:57
=== chaky_ is now known as chaky
_Oz_it's ok, I'm over it.05:57
badkitty_Oz_: wow thats nuts man... when was the last reboot?05:57
_Oz_hmm...  15 mins ago maybe05:58
devnullnext irc q, know of anything that can do blowfish encryption? :P05:58
ScuniziMasterShrek, ah I knew there was an easy answer!05:58
_Oz_I knew I was playing with fire with compiz, that's why I set it up on a computer that was nonessential05:58
_Oz_no big deal05:58
badkitty_Oz_: Strange, well anyhow I guess just don't run it while compiz is running..05:58
cptnapalmacee1234: scroll down until you see LCD Panel 1680x105005:58
Scunizidevnull, http://www.usinglinux.org/irc/irssi-fish.html05:58
badkitty_Oz_: Haha .. I only had problems with it in edgy when I had to install the nvidia drivers manually05:59
_Oz_badkitty: really appreciate all of your help, that's one of the things that make ubuntu great, the ubuntu community05:59
badkitty_Oz_: For sure.. I learn so much just from gleaming what people say in this room05:59
pocketdrummerIs there a way to force your mouse's sample rate to stay at 500?06:00
_Oz_I need to start learning some command line basics06:00
_Oz_I'm really good at copying at pasting into the terminal window06:00
Scunizidevnull, once you learn about irssi then learn about screen.. can be really powerful stuff.06:00
_Oz_but I need to learn what the hell it all means06:00
MasterShrek!bash | _Oz_06:00
ubotu_Oz_: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal06:00
cptnapalmpocketdrummer: no clue... but I'm curious why that would be something you need to do06:00
badkitty_Oz_: Don't worry it will come with time trust me06:00
devnulloh i am quite familiar with screen and console apps :)06:00
chubs730oz: cd, ls, mkdir, renmov are all you need06:00
_Oz_my biggest discomfort at this point comes from simply not understanding, exactly, the file structure06:01
_Oz_I don't understand where things go when they're installed06:01
_Oz_in windows, it's simple06:01
devnulli finally broke down and swapped my ati card for an nvidia card, so i am ready to make an attempt at using linux full time on the desktop06:01
_Oz_they go in c:/program files and some dlls get dumped into /windows06:01
devnullonly game i really play is wow06:01
cptnapalmchubs730: Don't forget the learning by extreme pain example:  rm -R /  heh06:01
Scunizi_Oz_, sort of simple in windows..06:01
_Oz_in linux, I have no friggin' idea06:01
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about fsh - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi06:01
_Oz_and I don't really get the "package" concept either -- is it like a zip?06:01
acee1235cptnapalm: froze had to restart but works06:01
crdlb_Oz_: dpkg -L PACKAGE_NAME :)06:01
chubs730cptnapalm: hah yeah, don't fall into that trap oz06:01
badkitty_Oz_: Me neither haha ..yah package is similar to zip06:02
cptnapalm_Oz_: package is more like an installer06:02
skwashdhi all06:02
MasterShrek_Oz_, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_Hierarchy_Standard06:02
_Oz_cptnapalm: yeah, I know what rm does :)06:02
chubs730oz: /usr/bin is where programs hang out when they're installed, as well as /usr/local/bin06:02
_Oz_thank you, mastershrek06:02
Scunizi_Oz_, kinda like an .exe.. with variations..06:02
pocketdrummercptnapalm: Well, G7 mouse changes it from 500 to 150 all by itself in both windows and linux (somehow). So, the cursor hops all over the screen. I'm negotiating with Logitech about them sending me a _Different_ mouse, but they're making it hard.06:02
acee1235cptnapalm:  thank you06:02
badkitty_Oz_: Yah its an installable archive basically.. a tarball is most similiar to a zip i would think06:02
skwashdi have a ASUS M3A mother board with 2G RAM, Athlon 4800+, 320G HDD, mythbuntu installed06:02
cptnapalm_Oz_: no one can every be *nix guru without having wiped out their OS with rm at least once :)06:02
devnulloh yeah, twinview = roxors :P06:02
skwashdeverytime i reboot it, the MAC address changes06:03
monteum someone gave me a website link about unbuntu restricted extras06:03
cptnapalmacee1235: so alls well in 1680x1050?06:03
_Oz_badkitty: like a self-executing zip (.exe) that's compressed into a single file?06:03
badkittymonte: probably me06:03
MasterShrekskwashd, sounds like a bios setting maybe, is it totally random which mac address?06:03
crdlb_Oz_: it's not self-executing06:03
montecan u give me that link again06:03
acee1235cptnapalm:  yes06:03
chubs730oz, cptnapalm: or installing debian twice because "it didn't work", because you were too lazy to check the website and find out what startx was06:03
pocketdrummerskwashd: That's really odd, I didn't think MAC addresses ever changed.06:03
acee1235cptnapalm: everything is tiny on my 15" screen06:04
cptnapalmacee1235: Awesome :)06:04
skwashdMasterShrek: that's what i thought ... checked it ... the only LAN options are "use boot rom" (disabled) and "smart mac" (auto - oither option disabled the nic)06:04
Scunizimonte, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats06:04
_Oz_startx? what's that?06:04
_Oz_and how could it have helped me?06:04
skwashdpocketdrummer: you can hack it .. but normally it shouldn't change06:04
montescunizi: thanks06:04
cptnapalmchubs730: Man I remember starting with Red Hat 4.something and trying to get X working.... had the case open on its side with a flashlight trying to read chipset numbers heh06:05
MasterShrekskwashd, very weird, never heard of such a thing06:05
chubs730oz: i wouldn't worry about it, but if you ever use something like slackware or debian, it boots to a command line by default06:05
badkitty_Oz_: Well a package is really what the name implies and you tell the computer what to do with it: sudo (super user do) apt-get (aptitude is the package manager) install (this is what to do with this package) virtualbox06:05
ubuntuloverGuys, what means "start application in terminal"??? How can i emulate this way in script?06:05
cptnapalmacee1235: on 15" I'm thinking 1440x900 might be a better bet06:05
chubs730oz: startx starts the x server, the graphical side06:05
_Oz_ctnapalm: yep, that's what scared me away from linux for a long time, but with ubuntu, users like me are being brought into the fold06:05
skwashdMasterShrek: ubuntu is loading the wrong driver for it too ... from what i have been able to dig up06:05
crdlbbadkitty: don't you mean "apt-get is the package manager"? :)06:05
skwashdit should be using the atl1 driver ... not forcedeth (nvidia)06:05
_Oz_so to install, it's always apt-get install filename06:06
rainwalkerubuntulover: start the application from a terminal, applications > accessories > terminal06:06
badkittycrdlb: Did i miss the get?06:06
_Oz_I wondered why "install xyz" never worked06:06
MasterShrekskwashd, try blacklisting forcedeth  maybe?06:06
MasterShrek!blacklist | skwashd06:06
crdlbbadkitty: you said apt-get, then aptitude in the explanation :)06:06
ubotuskwashd: To blacklist a module, edit /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist and add « blacklist <modulename> » to the end of that list - To explicitly load modules in a specific order, list them in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and type « sudo update-initramfs -u »06:06
Dr_willisibnstall is a different command. :)06:06
acee1235cptnapalm: i like things small i still have issues with restart x freezing my computer showing only the background06:06
crdlb_Oz_: not exactly, apt-get installs from repositories, dpkg is the raw package manager06:06
badkittycrdlb: aptitude is the package manager.. apt-get is how you reference it i guess.. you can also use aptitude in a terminal06:06
skwashdMasterShrek: about to try that :)06:06
crdlbwhich is capable of installing a .deb files06:06
_Oz_... oh06:06
_Oz_how does apt-get know where to find the repository06:07
crdlbbadkitty: they're separate apps, similar, but not identical06:07
Dr_willisubuntu Elven Magic!06:07
devnullhmm, whats the best alternative to konfabulator / yahoo widgets nowadays, still gkrellm or is there something better?06:07
ubuntuloverrainwalker: Now, i mean, i whant to bind start "python" in .xbindkeysrc, but i can't, cuz python should be started in terminal. So, how can i write it in script?06:07
chubs730oz: text configuration files on your computer06:07
cptnapalm_Oz_: Canonical and the Knoppix guys particularly really have made a world of difference in that regard.  One thing I do sort of miss is the kind of bonding that went on with the machine from knowing it so well... Hell, I still remember what I called that machine I build over a decade ago.... Tankgirl :)06:07
crdlb_Oz_: /etc/apt/sources.list plus a cache it makes when you sudo apt-get update06:07
badkittycrdlb: Oh .. IC06:07
sp219Is there any way to kill "gdmgreeter" (and everything involving a GUI/X For that matter, including gdm/X itself) so it doesn't restart again automatically?06:07
cptnapalmacee1235: Ok, that might be an ATI driver problem06:07
rainwalkerubuntulover: hmm...I'm not sure, but I'm not the best with scripts06:07
_Oz_and how is it retrieving them?  ftp?06:07
_Oz_I see, crdlb.06:07
crdlb_Oz_: or http, depends on the mirror06:07
ubuntuloverrainwalker: It's even not about scripts. Try to start "python" in "Alt+F2" - same thing.06:08
acee1235cptnapalm: so i basically need to rip my gpu out and find a way to put a nvidia gpu in my laptop06:08
badkittycrdlb: but you can still type sudo aptitude install xxx cant you? So is apt-get a shortcut or a seperate command alltogether?06:08
rainwalkerubuntulover: you mean, nothing happens?06:08
sp219Is there any way to kill "gdmgreeter" (and everything involving a GUI/X For that matter, including gdm/X itself) so it doesn't restart again automatically?06:08
MasterShreksp219, sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop06:09
_Oz_those text files which are updated when apt-get updates are kinda like nameservers in a way then, eh?06:09
crdlbbadkitty: it's a separate command; aptitude was intended as a more powerful replacement for apt-get, but apt-get has implemented some of those features recently.06:09
ubuntuloverrainwalker:  yep. Maybe, something happends! (:  But there is no python interpreter on the screen.06:09
cptnapalmacee1235:  If that is even possible :(  ATI can be awkward... Some machines they run like absolute champs.  Others, like a couple of desktops I tried Ubuntu on, they crash the kernel after trying to switch to console or, god forbid! log out06:09
rainwalkerwhat does control + alt + F4 do? last time I tried it I think it killed my X completely...so I'm afraid to try again06:09
crdlbbadkitty: compare apt-get --help and aptitude --help06:09
sp219MasterShrek: perfect, thanks!06:10
acee1235cptnapalm: yep mine does the latter06:10
devnulli never could get stuff working right with my ati card06:10
rainwalkerubuntulover: I think you have to run a python script with python, I don't think there's an actual python GUI that's supposed to come up06:10
devnullso i got an nvidia one lol06:10
Dr_willisrainwalker,  that goes to console #4 - use alt-ctrl-F7 to get back to X06:10
cptnapalmrainwalker: that should just switch you to virtual terminal 406:10
ubotuThe linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal06:10
ubuntuloverrainwalker:  You should just press  Ctrl+Alt+F7! (:06:10
rainwalkerDr_willis: wow that would have been nice to know at the time...06:10
badkittycrdlb: Yah I'll look into the differences one of these days06:10
cptnapalmacee1235: welcome to the misery of being an ATI user :(06:10
Dr_willisrainwalker,  it pays to read up on Linux fundamentals. :)06:10
rainwalkerguess o06:10
crdlbrainwalker: are you using compiz?06:10
rainwalkercrdlb: yes06:10
Dr_willisthats been a linux feature for.... ever.. :) i think.. heh06:10
acee1235cptnapalm: tis a temporary state i assure you06:10
ubuntuloverSo, can someone helps me?06:11
rainwalkerI was messing with key bindings for compiz stuff and set that as one...haha scared the crap out of me06:11
crdlbrainwalker: some drivers have broken vt-switching while using compiz, so when you switch to a terminal, you can't switch back to X :/06:11
ubuntuloverDevelopers, developers, developers!!!06:11
acee1235cptnapalm: im thinking a nice termite experiment is in order06:11
montescunizi: i installed the restricted extras and wat do i do after that06:11
cptnapalmacee1235: as it was with me... I bought my new desktop, and the first thing I did upon arriving home was to burn an Ubuntu disk, rip out the ATI card,slap in an nvidia, wipe out windows and install Linux06:11
skwashdMasterShrek: i love it when the vendor's website spec doesn't match what is in the box06:11
rainwalkercrdlb: well I didn't know control alt F7 would bring me back, I just thought I'd broken something06:12
badkitty_Oz_: To my knowledge, your sources hold files that reference the packages that are within their control, so when you update your sources, you are in essence downloading a compiled list of the packages that are on each source, therefore when you invoke a command such as apt-get install, it can reference the package name with the source and proceed to download and install, etc06:12
rainwalkerthe open ATI driver works fine for me...06:12
crdlbrainwalker: just something to keep in mind if it doesn't work :)06:12
ubuntulover" rainwalker: the open ATI driver works fine for me..."  With 3D???06:12
acee1235ii wonder if insurance would cover that...06:12
cptnapalmOh, to everyone who likes using the command line:  Buy a Sun Keyboard.  The Control key is where the Caps lock key normally is.  Makes life much better.06:12
sigmais the original WINE program the best available, or would anyone recommend something else?06:13
_Oz_it's a very clever, robust, and efficient system, badkitty.06:13
rainwalkerubuntulover: yes, as far as I can tell06:13
mrchicagohello all06:13
razordeaddevnull: the latest Linux widget stuff I've heard about is gDesklets & screenlets06:13
badkittyOh No! I found one of those Rotten Jelly Bellies in my bag! I've been poisoned!06:13
MasterShreksigma, wine is about the best06:13
_Oz_sigma: yeah, WINE is still the best.06:13
crdlbrainwalker: ooh, you should be fine then, the radeon driver has perfect vt-switching afaik :)06:13
fignew_cptnapalm: wrong... it makes life hell06:13
mrchicagohow is it going06:13
chubs730cptnapalm: that sounds quite awesome06:13
cptnapalmfignew_: How?!?!?06:13
Dr_willisTheres guides on swiching the caps lock and ctrl keys. :)06:13
chubs730cptnapalm: though you could always just trade keys and remap06:13
badkitty_Oz_: Indeed; not to mention convenient as all heck06:13
sigmaone more thing... I have no control over my bluetooth module in linux, only in windows. My bluetooth mouse works, but linux believes there is no adapter present. any ideas?06:13
ubuntuloverGuys, what tine is on your clocks??? (:06:14
ubuntuloverIt's very interesting.06:14
cptnapalmchubs730: and miss the opportunity to have even more crap?  Perish the thought!06:14
MisterMomyou should see my home made keyboard06:14
_Oz_it's so superior to M$' nonsense,.06:14
_Oz_I have to say, I am simply blown away by ubuntu.06:14
fignew_cptnapalm: I do wanna get a Sun Keyboard from work just so I can give "props" :D06:14
_Oz_Here, for free, is a program which knocks microsoft and their billions on their ass.06:14
rainwalkermy clock keeps turning an hour back...06:14
MisterMomi rearanged the keys myself06:14
cptnapalmfignew_: I got one off eBay for like $506:14
_Oz_it's powerful!  it's a better OS.  not some cheap little "cute" OS which is what I was expecting.  I am just so impressed by the whole experience.06:14
chubs730cptnapalm: yeah i can't say i don't want one, i'm guilty of of having bought a flexible keyboard off of ebay06:14
fignew_did it have PS2?06:14
badkitty_Oz_: It's not just ubuntu, but the whole open source deal.. other linux distros offer the same type of package management systems06:15
cptnapalmfignew_: USB06:15
_Oz_badkitty: yeah. ubuntu, to me, is the gateway which made the world of linux possible and then attractive to me.06:15
rainwalker_Oz_: welcome to ubuntu06:15
fignew_ahh... newer style, we have a bunch of those at work too :/06:15
_Oz_I had friends who were linuxheads back in the day.06:15
chubs730badkitty: having used most, I think ubuntu's works the best06:15

badkittycptnapalm: Wow you get a hi five!06:37
AshnalDr_willis: i already looked in there, i cant find it06:37
badkittycptnapalm: Down with ATI . NVidia FTW!06:37
nickrud_acee1235: try this:   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -pcritical xserver-xorg && sudo apt-get install xserver-xgl , log out and back in06:37
_Oz_yeah, it's gotta be nvidia.06:37
Dr_willisAshnal,  then make one?06:38
cptnapalmAshnal: ok do this find /etc -type f -name "dosbox.conf" -print06:38
_Oz_their cards always work great and they're always compatible with everything.  dunno how anyone would willingly get sucked into an ATI.06:38
nickrud_badkitty: built into my laptop, gotta make it work06:38
Dr_williscould be an example one in the dosbox docs dir.06:38
fantum13I'm having DHCP issues with my AR5007EG on ndiswrapper (Gutsy amd64 with a 64 bit windows driver). I know the driver and card are functional, because if I can chain reboot enough for, than it'll work, but otherwise, I'm fscked. Does anyone have experience with this?06:38
cptnapalmAshnal: I think that should find it if it is in the /etc directory06:38
cptnapalmbadkitty: Swapping video cards cured all manner of headaches... and AMD STILL has not fixed their damn drivers06:39
razordeadhow come the screenlets.org web site hasn't been updated since 0.0.1006:39
badkittynickrud_: So its better NOT to compile a new kernel unless I had to (especially for support reasons)06:39
Ashnalcptnapalm: i get zilc06:39
pocketdrummerrainwalker: Is cube enabled in the extra setting?06:39
_Oz_dr_willis: one downside of this browser sync by google is that there's really no way to use your bookmarks at a public computer.  got a solution for that one?06:39
nickrud_badkitty: absolutely. I haven't compiled one in a few years06:39
badkittycptnapalm: I've disliked ati since I knew they existed.. it all went downhill from my first experience with an all-in-wonder06:40
Dr_willis_Oz_,  Check the various web sites that can keep your bookmarks i guess.  I dont use public coputers06:40
cptnapalmAshnal: Ok, I'm thinking that there isn't one there then heh06:40
razordead_Oz_: I think del.icio.us would be better for that06:40
cptnapalmAshnal: did you install from Synaptic or apt or some such?06:40
j_humphreyok, so it didnt work06:40
_Oz_what happened06:40
j_humphreyhooray for crappy ati06:40
Ashnalcptnapalm: i installed using the add/remove feature06:40
nickrud__Oz_: del.icio.us has a really useful firefox plugin as well06:41
badkittyI like the seemingly new plugin for firefox the speed-dial (surely a copy of operas speed dial)06:41
_Oz_oh, you're using ATI?  that does make it a bit more difficult06:41
cptnapalmbadkitty: One thing which puzzles me is how the hell they have some chips that work great, but others that are totally borked06:41
_Oz_nickrud: thanks for the tip06:41
_Oz_I'll check that out06:41
j_humphrey_oz_ yeah, it does make it more difficult06:41
cptnapalmAshnal: ok good... give me a minute and I'll see if i remember how to do something06:41
Dr_willisupdatedb and locate  - are handy tools. :)06:41
Jangariho would I install an app onto a server on which i don't have superuser permissions? I hear it's possible to put an app in my own ~/bin directory and run it from there06:41
LinuxMercedescptnapalm: yeah.  I have an ATI here that works fine06:41
badkittycptnapalm: Yah odd.. Do you know if ATI has the same kind of driver architecture that nvidia does IE. One driver for all cards (except GO?)06:42
_Oz_j_humphrey: are you still seeing only a two sided panel when you rotate the 'cube'?06:42
Dr_willisJangari,  you could compile the app as a user. and install it to your home dir.06:42
j_humphreylinuxmercedes, are you on a mobility radien?06:42
demortesI have a completely unrelated question to help me with my ubuntu server. I need to register a domain name, but every time I use godaddy, it doesn't release it to be registered again. Anyone got any decent registration services that allows complete control over nameservers?06:42
cptnapalmLinuxMercedes: Had a laptop with an ATI was great.  Have had 2 desktops with ATI which were aweful...  :-/06:43
j_humphreyas long as i dont have virtual desktops, i think im fine06:43
acee1234compiz is up testing video06:43
ubd how can i check if ubuntus cpu frequency handling06:43
LinuxMercedesj_humphrey: I have a radeon of some sort in the desktop (I forget which one); Laptop is Trident Video Accelerator =[06:43
pocketdrummerDoes anyone know if cube is enabled on Extra mode? I tried ctrl+alt+left click and it does nothing.06:43
Jangarihow do i compile it, lame, as a user, Dr_willis?06:43
Jangarior sox, even06:43
Dr_willisdownload the source.. and assiming the compiler stuff is installed.. unpack it.. and start compiling.06:43
badkittydemortes: What do you mean released again? You should be able to control nameservers of your domain through godaddy06:43
Jangaripocketdrummer: you have to get advanced desktop settings06:44
demortesRight, but I want to have it released back to the domain pool if and when it expires06:44
shroothyany one know how to open my own channel06:44
demortesI don't think great domains should be reserved for pointless ads06:44
badkittypocketdrummer: If you look under the controls it should tell you what keys are binded to it06:44
Jangaricompiling doesn't require superuser privileges?06:44
devnullhmm, out of beer...06:44
acee1234ok video doesnt flicker but it has reduced fps and is lagged behind the sound06:44
devnullcompiling doesnt, but systemwide installation does06:44
j_humphreywhen i switch between desktops (wheel up/down on desktop) it doesnt "flip" it looks like a cube, but i dont actually see a cube06:45
pocketdrummerJangari, Badkitty: Thanks06:45
cptnapalmAshnal: I *think* that dpkg -S dosbox.conf should work06:45
devnullin fact it is recommended that programs not be compiled as root by most06:45
nickrud_j_humphrey: hold down the middle mouse button and move the mouse around.06:45
badkittyj_humphrey: did you check to see how many desktops (horizontal setting in ccsm) you have?06:45
j_humphreythat works nickrud06:45
Ashnalcptnapalm: whatll that do? tell me where dosbox.conf is?06:45
_Oz_is it a cube now, j-hump?06:46
cptnapalmdo not compile as root if at all possible.... If you do, you will get cooties and girls will not want to talk to you.06:46
Jangarimm, the problem is that its a university owned server running redhat, and they won't allow us to install systemwide software that isn't supported by redhat, and they don't yet support the mp3 libraries for so06:46
demortesYou're running ubuntu, unless you make a lot of money, I doubt your in any state to talk to girls anyway06:46
j_humphreyis there a way to zoom out?06:46
badkittyj_humphrey: The normal ctrl-alt keys probably are not binded or something06:46
=== nickrud_ is now known as nickrud
j_humphreydemortes, im running ubuntu, and im engaged :)06:46
chubs730demortes: no way, ubuntu sounds so exotic06:46
cptnapalmAshnal: I don't have dosbox.  That will tell dpkg to search for the packages that have dosbox.conf  so should tell you where it installed it06:46
_Oz_j-hump: I knew you'd ask that06:46
chubs730exotic ~ erotic06:47
_Oz_look under rotating cube in the compiz-config06:47
_Oz_one of the options is "scale"06:47
demorteschubs730 I can see that, but not like to women :P06:47
_Oz_zoom it to about 3.006:47
_Oz_it'll start looking more like a cube06:47
Ashnalcptnapalm: so will this dpkg tell me where any app is installed?06:47
cptnapalmAshnal: it will tell you where a particular file is, if you installed it the normal way06:47
chubs730demortes: "maynards-girl has quit ()"  yeah guess not :/06:48
demortesso anyone have a preferred place for domain registration?06:48
nickrudAshnal: dpkg -L <packagename> shows where all the files get installed06:48
Jangarirotating the cube with like 16 desktops is fun06:48
cptnapalmnickrud: Damnit i forgot about the -L06:48
Jangariit turns into a massive wheel, like a big block of parmesan06:48
badkittydemortes: I've just used godaddy. Also if you go to brinkster.com (if you need hosting) they give you a domain name or two for free with the hosting06:48
Dr_willis Ashnal    /usr/share/doc/dosbox/dosbox.conf.example.gz06:49
chubs730demortes: godaddy has been fine for me also06:49
Ashnalnickrud:thank you that will be soooo helpful as i never seem to be able to find program files since they seem to be scattered everywhere06:49
demortesI'm not liking Godaddy, because of them, I can't use the same domain name06:49
demortesThey fail to release the domain to a functional state06:49
witepaHi, I am trying to install madwifi to enable my wireless card, but I am encountering some difficulties. First off, can anyone help me to why my wireless device is coming up as eth1 instead of ath0 or wifi0?06:49
cptnapalmDr_willis: what were they thinking slapping it into /usr/share/doc....06:49
badkittydemortes: WHO06:49
Jangarii went with 1and1, i didn't know any others and 1and1 were suggested to me, 6 bucks a year wasn't too bad i though06:49
j_humphreywow, compiz is so much better than aero06:49
MandosI am having trouble with suspend/hibernate on Feisty.  It used to work, but now it is not.06:49
demortesbadkitty: godaddy.06:49
demortesI just need domain, not hosting.06:50
badkittydemortes: I never had problems with them..06:50
Dr_williscptnapalm,  its an example config file. :)  where else should it be.06:50
Dr_williscpTanis,  dosbox can generate a conf file I belive from some command also..06:50
Dr_willisoops wrong nick :)06:50
jj_humphrey aer?06:50
badkitty_Oz_: Geah06:50
_Oz_how do I get twinview working again?06:50
_Oz_there's a quick and easy way to get x-server06:50
Mandosunfortunately, I have not been able to find any reason for why it does not work.06:50
badkitty_Oz_: Let me get the link06:50
_Oz_but I forgot it06:50
nickruddemortes: why not just transfer the domain?06:50
demortesI no longer own it06:51
cptnapalmDr_willis: I've always hated example configs... I mean, ship the damn thing with something that at least barely works and put it in the right place...  Where the hell is my pitchfork?!?!06:51
badkitty_Oz_: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=177358406:51
MandosAnd my ubuntuforums posts have not received any response.06:51
MandosWhich is not unusual.06:51
cptnapalmMandos: well frequently when noone knows, they don't answer :-/06:51
Dr_williscptnapalm, i found it. :)   of course i also read the docs. :)06:52
_Oz_that's it06:52
Ashnalcptnapalm: im with you, and i currently have no idea where to put this config file so that dosbox will load it at startup06:52
badkittyI think twinview is a lame name.. especially because my two monitors barely look alike06:52
_Oz_thank you, badkitty.  I love that method -- so much easier.06:52
nickrudMandos: try looking in /var/log/syslog , around the time you suspend. You might find a clue there06:52
witepaHey again, I am trying to install madwifi to enable my wireless card, but I am encountering some difficulties. First off, can anyone help me to why my wireless device is coming up as eth1 instead of ath0 or wifi0?06:52

sp219j: gparted?06:52
badkitty_Oz_: It's one of those things you just need to get it working already you know?06:52
Dr_willisAshnal,  dosbox man pages says in the current directory06:52
MandosLooking in /var/log/syslog.  It doesn't say much.  I am using uswsusp.  It fails on "suspending consoles".06:52
=== sp219 is now known as a
cptnapalmAshnal: See, it is all about finding something, and editing it... it should not be about finding something, figure out where to put it and then figure out how the hell to get it to work at all06:53
MandosAnd then doesn't turn off the computer.06:53
sigmawitepa: that depends on your hardware and how it is connected, mine is eth1 as well06:53
MandosThat's for s2disk/s2both.06:53
=== a is now known as s
badkitty_Oz_: Although I thought there was a graphical way to do that now ...06:53
AshnalDr_willis: the directory that the dosbox executable is in?06:53
jsp219 so its /dev/sda1 ext3 but then it has linux-swap as /dev/sda2 and then ext /dev/sda3 for the one im running now06:53
=== Fyd4_ is now known as Fyda
Dr_willisAshnal,  the directory you RUN the program from06:53
nickrudMandos:   ubuntu-users mail list, it has some smart people there. attach the relevant part of the syslog06:53
=== s is now known as sp219
witepasigma: when i try to do iwlist eth1 scan, i get eth1 no scan results06:53
witepasigma: after installing madwifi06:53
Dr_willisAshnal,  this lets you put a config file in each dos games dir. that gets used.06:53
ubotunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like Freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit06:53
Jangariooh, another netsplit06:54
MandosOK, I"ll try that.06:54
sigmahah, netsplit06:54
Dr_williscptnapalm,  the fact its mentioned in the man page  is  hiding it eh. :)06:54

cptnapalmDr_willis: Everything should go where it is supposed to go...06:54
Jangaricould have been 200 more06:54
sp219badkitty: one of the servers lost it's connection06:55
Jangarij: that seems reasonable, what's the problem?06:55
jwould that be a problem for linux swap ..messing up the06:55
Dr_williscptnapalm,  it dosent need one  :) so there for its going in the example dir.06:55
witepasigma: when i try to do iwlist eth1 scan, i get eth1 no scan results06:55
Jangarishouldn't be a problem for the swap,06:55

_Oz_what does "gksudo" mean anyway?  Obviously I know what sudo does.06:56
dragonare there any good games that i can install on ubuntu?06:56
_Oz_why the "gk"?06:56
Jangarino dragon, none06:56

Dr_willisthats a must get game.06:56
Starnestommy_Oz_: it's a gtk frontend to sudo06:56
dorkfaceHi all, I have a .tff file with a font that I really want to use.  I tried searching google, but is it possible to convert .tff to .pcf, so konsole can understand it?06:56
_Oz_why does it need a gtk front end?06:56
cptnapalmDr_willis: Ok maybe not one totally incompetent... I mean I don't know how to do it and I'm completely clueless heh06:57
jjangari so i can delete sda1 ext3 the old ubuntu partation .. but its mount point /media/sda1 would i run into problems if i remove it?06:57
neil_d_Oz_: it help when runing gui tools like gedit06:57
Starnestommy_Oz_: note that a lot of graphical administrative programs use it06:57
dragonso is there a website that has a list of good games? or do i just look up on google " linux games"?06:57
jjangari nvm what i said.06:57
dragonalso i cant seem to get sound to work06:57
MandosOK thanks.06:57
MandosI filed a launchpad bug.06:58
_Oz_thanks, starnes and neil.06:58
Ashnaldragon:theres always emulators which are fun06:58
MandosWe'll see if it gets any responses.06:58
badkittydragon: There was a list somewhere google best linux games...06:58
Dr_williscptnapalm,  I WANT it to run from the current dir. that way when i cd to 'doom' and do 'dosbox' it auto runs that config file. which i set up to run doom., if i am in the warlords dir - i set it up to auto run warlords06:58
chubs730oops sorry wrong channel06:58
Jangariyou should probably solicit advice from someone who knows what they're talking about, j, but i would assume that the numbering of the partition wouldn't change if you format an entire partition06:58
badkittydragon: You can also look into sourceforge06:58
jjangari is it ok if 1st partition is linux-swap and 2nd is ubutnut06:58
badkittydragon: But i think sudoku is fun!!06:58
cptnapalmDr_willis: Oh wait... its not a system config then?  Its a per app thing?06:58
dragonso either google good linux games or use sourceforge?06:58
Jangarii don't think it matters where they are, I have first partition swap, second data, third xp pro, fourth ext306:58
AshnalDr_willis: i launch dosbox itself, and then the game inside it06:59
jJangari thank you06:59
badkittydragon: Try both! Use those firefox tabs!!06:59
Dr_williscptnapalm, it looks for a user made config, and in the current dir..06:59
evil_techJ: it doesnt matter where ubuntu is installed as long as grub can point to it06:59
Dr_willisAshnal,  you can set up a config to autorun the game if you wanted.06:59
MandosI'm going to google "bad linux games."06:59
dragonok i'll try those thanks :)06:59
badkittyMandos: Great idea!06:59
Jangarialso, reformatting one partition, your first, won't renumber those after it, they're fixed spaces on the disk06:59
evil_techMandos: you need Blobwars :)06:59
dragonas far as emulaters go do you mean wine? cause i cant get it to work and i have tried lots of times06:59
Jangariwhen you format it for another use, dataspace, say, it'll become the first partition07:00
cptnapalmgood linux game was xsoldier or something like that fun and hard07:00
Jangariwine bites07:00
MandosIt doesn't give me much.  Just a bunch of bug reports.07:00
MandosMaybe if I google "terrible linux games" it will be more fruitful.07:00
badkittydragon: There are many games that run natively on linux.. give those a try... if you like FPS try enemy territory07:00
Jangariwhy do you want bad games, Mandos?07:00
nickrudwine is evil, it perpetuates non-free software07:00
AshnalDr_willis: i might want to explain what im trying to do i guess haha cause its not something typical, im actually trying to compile a dos game so i can play it...cause all i have is the source code....and i need to set something in the autoexec.bat to get it to compile, which i thought i could do through a config file07:00
badkittydragon: I think another popular one is called fortress???07:01
Cpudan80nickrud: Perhaps, but if you can run the stuff you need to run without windows --- is that so bad?07:01
Jangarinot so much non-free, nickrud, but closed-access,07:01
Dr_willisAshnal,  compile a dos game under linux? Good Luck with that..07:01
sigma.... just did a search for blob.... found: "Metal Blob Solid" ... wtf...07:01
cptnapalmDr_willis: it would seem to me a better way to do that would be to have it as essentially a script which you would toss in a personal bin so just call up whatever game you want to run by its name07:01
dragonwhat did you mean by emulater? you mean like zsnes? thats a cool emulater wounder if they have a linux ver of it07:01
AshnalDr_willis, no compile a dos game inside of dosbox07:01
achandrashekarhello I have a question about an ltsp setup which uses nfs mounted home drive. Im confused about setup and also the use of ldap for authentication. Does anyone have experience with this?07:01
nickrudJangari: same thing.07:01
Cpudan80nickrud: I'd rather have an app running in wine than a VM with Windows XP + app07:01
Dr_williscptnapalm,  unless you need seperate configs for each game..07:01
Jangariokay, so you don't mean monetarily free07:01
MandosJangari: Just because it amuses me.07:02
Mr__does this room have some sort of webchat  block on it?07:02
Dr_willisAshnal,  that dosbox config file has autorun commands at the end of it. I guess ya could toss them in there.07:02
nickrudCpudan80: it's a political thing, so off topic ;)07:02
badkittyCpudan80: if possible yah.. xp in vm is the pits07:02
Cpudan80nickrud: heh, alrighty07:02
Jangariliektoolbox for linguists, free, but only availsble for pc or intel mac via crossover, and linux via wine07:02
Dr_willisAshnal,  you got a compiler for dos appready eh?07:02
JangariMandos: how about xmame?07:02
AshnalDr_willis: im trying to set the dos compiler up07:02
cptnapalmDr_willis: nope.  See if was essentially a script, then you would change what options needed to be changed then name the script after the game.  Calling the script would then call dosbox to run the dos game in the specially needed way.07:02
j_humphreywhere do you get widgets for the widget layer?07:03
MandosInstalling it.07:03
Dr_williscptnapalm,  this is linxu do whatever you want. You could alwyas set up whatever alias;s ytou want. :P07:03
AshnalDr_willis:and the environment variables need to be set in auutoexec.bat07:03
MandosIt looks big.07:03
StarnestommyMr__: looks like it07:03
Jangariyou'll need to find the roms as well, Mandos07:03
Mr__Starnestommy: y?07:03
Dr_willisAshnal,  the dosbox config file has a auto run thing at the end that can do that.07:03
StarnestommyMr__: abuse07:03
Jangarithey can be a bit of a b|tch07:03
[MGR]MikkelHi ...07:03
cptnapalmDr_willis: Of course I've now been talking out of my butt for half an hour about a program that I have never used so... Ignore me at your leisure :)07:04
AshnalDr_willis:yea thats what ive been trying to get at, however i dont know where to put the damn thing07:04
[MGR]MikkelI has Download the Script to my IRC Server! .. and i can not running it! its say : Fail: Cannot chdir(/home/server/lib): Permission denied, check DPATH <- I know dont no why? Please Help me!07:04
Dr_williscptnapalm,   im about to. :) i 'cd warlords2' and run run dosbox. and it runs the game for me. I could make a 2 line script that just cd's and runs. if i wanted.07:04
Mr__Starnestommy: can any sites get approval?07:04
AshnalDr_willis:so that when i run dosbox by itself it loads the config, allowing me to run the compiler afterwards inside07:04
Dr_willisAshnal,  put the dosbov config in the dir with the dos game filea.. cd to the dos dir.. and run dosbox.07:05
StarnestommyMr__: you could probably ask the ops for an exception07:05
Dr_willisAshnal,  you are making it WAY too hard.07:05
Mr__Starnestommy: who are they?07:05
tichcan someone direct me to a page that lists portable mp3/movie players (like ipods) that work well with ubuntu?07:05
AshnalDr_willis: i cant just 'run' the game >_>07:05

star1Hi there, my install of Beryl seems to be broken -- when I try to use it, I don't get any title-bars or borders on my windows.  I read somewhere that to fix it, I need to recompile the fglrx kernel module, but it keeps failing saying it can't find a directory that I know exists.  Can anyone help me out?
