tcpdumpgodyou're going to have to hit "ctrl+alt+F1" (not right now) and drop out of X11. Then you're going to have to "sudo -i" and get to root.

boltI run the ratpoison WM and xterm with the exact same font and fontsize as in the console (i've counted pixels here). I also run xterm with no internal or external border. However, when I create an xterm window, the characters start drawing 1 pixel further down the screen than in the console, making me get 99% of a full line free space at the bottom of the screen. This is driving me crazy. What makes that 1 pixel border?!00:59

Anizuka?01:43
daniel733473I am trying to install Ubuntu 7.10, and my IDE cdrom is being used with scsi emulation and the install is extremely slow with I/O wait pegged at 100%, ETA several hours to finish. How do I install without CDROM scsi emulation?01:43
Jack_SparrowPelo: Frozen Bubble is SERIOUSLY addictive01:43
iDivineAnizuka,PERFECT type like that to me for now on.01:43
Peloimartron, what is the error ?01:43
nohlaimaginator, I dont need subtitles right now, but the film I was watching doest work, its in my language. vlc stops working01:43
Schmao-FmaoI'm trying to temporarily undo the changes that LTSP has made, and it seems to have added a TFTP prefix01:43
Anizukaidivine, okay01:43
Schmao-Fmaohow do I remove it?01:43
iDivineAnizuka, This is you're HELP, ALL THESE people are you're HELP.01:43
Anizukaidivine, wow.01:43
DILnot well versed on syntax but it allows copying via network01:44
iDivineAnizuka, You have a question? Type  it here, AND SOMEONE WILL HELP YOU. ;)01:44
kahrytanAnyone know how to fix the upgraded Alien Arena? (Repo got updated version  and it broke it.01:44
PeloJack_Sparrow, well , I just made it to level 28 so I I can still quit when ever I want , I just don't wont to yet01:44
Anizukaidivine, okay..01:44
DILre Brenny's ?01:44
imartronPelo: it starts with "Nautilus can't be used now" and goes on to tell me to try "bonobo-slay"/reboot01:44
iDivineAnizuka, So ask the question here, And people will help you.01:44
imaginatornohla: perhaps it's a VLC bug.  Considering that Totem is capable of playing the same disc that seems likely.01:44
imartronAnd then the panel can't load01:44
puffencrypt128bit: a) don't paste large bloccks of text in the channel.  b) don't use the enter key as puncuation;  type your whole question in one line.  c) use family-appropriate language, d) don't use AOL-isms and chat short-hand, e) Be clear as to what exactly is the  question, f) if nobody answers, that's probably because nobody knows, or the people who do know aren'there.01:44
Pelokahrytan, you can reinstall previous versions from the repos,  it is either a right click property thing or in the menu01:44
Anizukaidivine, is this where you always go?01:44
imartronso i'm having trouble opening programs and troubleshooting01:44
encrypt128bitOkay so... first time installing ubuntu, im at the part where you select and install software, and on console 4 during the install its telling me that method cdrom has died unexpectedly, then it tells me that menu item pkgsel  failed with error code 1.01:45
frank23daniel733473: AFAIK cdrom always have to be accessed as a scsi device.01:45
slugonewhere can i find libz??? i checked synaptic01:45
puffencrypt128bit: Oh, to paste large blocks of text, use pastebin.com01:45
Peloimartron, and did you try bonobo-slay  ?01:45
imartronyup01:45
speeddemon8803!rules01:45
ubotuThe people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines01:45
imartronno effect really01:45
encrypt128bitheh01:45
Peloimartron, I would suggest you try looking up the exact error msg in the forum01:45
imartronnot sure what to do after "bonobo-slay"01:45
iDivineAnizuka, Yes, But remember to ask the question without 'iDivine,' and when someone awnsers you, to adress them with 'NAME,' brb..01:45
BrennyDil, yeah, I don't know if it will work though. Guess I should just give it a try. Couldn't hurt too much.01:45
speeddemon8803that was for anybody and everyone that didnt know them. :)01:45
daniel733473frank23: on all my previous non-debian based installations, it is recognized as /dev/hda with the 2.6.x kernel. I am hoping for a boot parameter or something to disable that01:45
speeddemon8803tab completion works wonders01:46
Peloimartron,  reboot ?01:46
frank23daniel733473: oh01:46
imartronPelo: multiple reboots have had no effect01:46
slugoneim trying to install/make an app that wants the libz dependancy....i cannot find it in synaptic01:46
frank23daniel733473: I don't really know...01:46
Peloimartron, go back to my first suggestion,  search the error msg in the forum01:46
imaginatordaniel733473: the scsi layer became the default for some reason, based on what I read on the Linux Kernel Mailing List.  I'll try to find the thread01:47
imartronSomething that'll help me is the shortcut for opening a terminal01:47

speeddemon8803!swap > speeddemon880301:47
daniel733473imaginator: ok. I am ok with it being scsi. My problem is that it pegs I/O wait at 100% and is insanely slow. It took 10 mins to boot to the graphical desktop01:47
slugonethe is wepdecrypt01:48
Jack_Sparrowencrypt128bit: At start or install there are some things you can try..  F6 lets you edit the boot command line and then we try things like noapic  .. before the --  I will post a longer list to try in a sec01:48

lz7any way to disable web page "stuckage" when mouse is over flash banner?01:49
encrypt128biti should put all that before the boot? im using the alternate text based installer01:49
kahrytanPelo->  new version is nice but it crashes after 2 map is finished (single player)01:49
imaginatornohla: Sorry, but I don't know.  That sounds like a bug in Totem01:49
Jack_Sparrowencrypt128bit: nope... nevewr all of them01:49
dialupive tried all the tricks in the forums ect.....while using the GUI version, it initializes the mouse display, then goes to a text version that hangs at 'running local scripts', tried the nosplash method.... tried the alt version...both cds are fine...the alt version gets to the point where its 'configuring apt - scanning the mirror' and hangs at 40%01:49
AnizukaPelo, it says the normal one wont even work01:49
Joey_Fippini can't open device manager01:49
imaginatornohla: do you have a lot of unattached shared memory segments listed in ipcs?01:49
Pelokahrytan, like I said you can revert to the privious version in synaptic01:49
imartrondarn01:49
Joey_Fippinseriously, it just doesn't show up01:49
Joey_Fippinwtf01:49
encrypt128bitso just try one of those at a time or what. heh, sorry im pretty new at this01:49
PeloAnizuka, what is your video card ?01:49
encrypt128bitand should i abort my current installation to try these01:50
Anizukapelo, how do you figgure out what your video card is?01:50
Joey_Fippini just installed 7.1001:50
Jack_Sparrowencrypt128bit: Already trying the alternate.. have done the cd self test or done an MD5 checksum on it.. sorry.. but I need to take off...  WIfe will be home in a few minutes01:50
PeloJoey_Fippin, i had that happen a while back,  I wasn't realy botter to check why at the time and it is back now , try rebooting01:50
BrennyDil, nope, :) Can't dd directly to samba. It doesn't recognize it as a valid directory. Time to find another method...01:50
kahrytanPelo->  ill check getdeb version01:50
Joey_Fippinalright01:50
Joey_Fippinthanks pelo01:50
imaginatordaniel733473: that sounds strange for it to be so slow.  I haven't heard of that before.  how old are the disk and motherboard?01:50
PeloAnizuka, check your computer's manual ?  or type lspci in the terminal01:51
ahorriblemessi'm on an hp6704nr notebook... plugging headphones into the computer doesn't mute the speakers. I've already tried the method on here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=575750&highlight=wifi&page=401:51

daniel733473imaginator: it is a Dell Inspiron 3800, 1.6Ghz, 52xcd/dvdrom. Not sure of the exact years, but within the past 401:51
Jack_Sparrowencrypt128bit: Try posting your hardware info for review01:51
encrypt128bitwhere at?01:52
DILBrenny, the command is netcat you specify ip etc01:52
Jack_Sparrowencrypt128bit: Short version in here, keep it short.. NEVER more than three lines01:52
imaginatornohla: you may find that you're out of shared memory, but it does sound like a bug in Totem.  Everytime a program crashes it may not cleanup the SysV shared memory that ipcs lists.01:52
BrennyDil, even if it's a Windows machine on the other end?01:52
imaginatornohla: especially video players01:52
Pelodialup,  what is this in regards to ?01:52
dialupinstalling 7.1001:53
dialupx6401:53
imaginatornohla: in which case youc an use ipcrm to remove the shared memory identifier01:53
speeddemon8803thats not good01:53

Peloencrypt128bit, , it's just a busy channel, repeat your query periodicaly and breifly01:55

AnizukaPelo, the Ispci isnt working in the terminal01:55
miraageIs it possible to install an old version of the UBUNTU kernel without compiling from source?01:55
mjw-Anizuka it's lspci, not Ispci01:56
BrennyDil, sorry, didn't mean for you to go look for it if thats how it came it. I'm hunting it down right now:)01:56
Joey_Fippinhmm, restarting didn't fix me01:56
imaginatordaniel733473: does the Linux dmesg program list anything that would indicate a device driver having problems?01:56
AnizukaxD01:56
PeloAnizuka, you do know what linux is case sensitive right &01:56
Pelo?01:56
miraageIt seems that there's only one kernel version in my apt repository01:56
nohlaimaginator, im really new in ubuntu, i hardly understand ubuntu, terminal and English. If it isnt easy yo cant help me because i cant help you to understand me01:56
arrrghhhhey to make something runable from anywhere i just have to do a "sudo ln -s <filename>" and then i can run "filename" from whereever in the terminal right?01:56
AnizukaPelo, no, I didnt01:56
Dr_willisarrrghhh,  you need to link it to somewhere in your path01:57
daniel733473imaginator: I will check on this boot. I had powered it off and started reading about boot options. I am trying to boot with "generic.all_generic_ide=1" now. If that doesn't work, I'll be reading dmesg very carefully.  Thanks for your time so far :)01:57
imaginatornohla: I understand.  It's probably just a bug in Totem.  Please report it if you can.  I know that english isn't your native language :)01:57
arrrghhhDr_willis, can you be a little less vague please?01:57
Peloimartron, I don'T allow private msg, please talk to me in the channel01:57
imartronYeah, just noticed ;)01:57
Dr_willisarrrghhh,  what you are doing is totally wrong.. since your command is wrong...01:57
miraageHow can I install an older version of linux-image (linux-image-2.6.21 or less) ?01:57
imartronI'm not getting relevant results in ubuntuforums or google01:57
imartronhere's my error message:01:57
imartronNautilus can't be used now. Running the command "bonobo-slay" from the console may fix the problem. If not, you can try rebooting the computer or installing Nautilus again.01:57
imartronBonobo couldn't locate the Nautilus_shell.server file. One cause of this seems to be an LD_LIBRARY_PATH that does not include the bonobo-activation library's directory. Another possible cause would be bad install with a missing Nautilus_Shell.server file.01:57
imartronRunning "bonobo-slay" will kill all Bonobo Activation and GConf processes, which may be needed by other applications.01:57
imartronSometimes killing bonobo-activation-server and gconfd fixes the problem, but we don't know why.01:57
FloodBot3imartron: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.01:57

Joey_Fippinmy bad pelo01:58
arrrghhhDr_willis, wha?01:58
nickrudimartron: so, did you do all of those things they suggested?01:58
DILBrenny, no dude, i learned dd and thought how nice it would be to dd over network netcat was the tool i looked at not much hands on01:58
encrypt128bitHeres my problem: Im installing UBUNTU via alternate cd, MD5 checked out on the ISO file i downloaded, and the check CD didnt find any errors. Im at the stage in the install where you select and install software, and it keeps failing. (Im running a P4 3GHz, 1GB of ram, gefore 6800) im installing ubuntu on a seperate hard drive as well.01:58
Peloimartron, try these commands,   sudo apt-get remove nautilus --purge  and then sudo apt-get install nautilus01:58
Joey_Fippinany ideas on getting device manager to start?01:59
BrennyDil, looking at a webpage right now. Netcat looks like exactly what I need. Thanks a bunch. I01:59
macogwencrypt128bit: and you're sure the optical drive's in good shape?01:59
speeddemon8803device manager?01:59
encrypt128bitYes01:59
Joey_Fippinyeah, its supposed to be under system > administration > device manager02:00
Joey_Fippinbut def not there for me02:00
Peloencrypt128bit,try pre partitionning your harddrive,  make 3 partitons,   / ext3 about 10 gig ,  swap linux-swap 2 gig and /home ext3 the rest02:00
slugone_sry my internet got messed up, the zlib worked, but now it says "requires openssl even though i just reinstalled it " (im trying to make wepdecrypt)02:00
macogwJoey_Fippin: right click the menu and go to edit. maybe its just hidden?02:00
Peloencrypt128bit,  then use manual partitionning in the installer , select where each ofthe partition goes that will save you some formating02:00
imaginatordaniel733473: you might also want to install the linux-source package and then look in Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt which has a bunch of IDE options that could be useful towards getting it to be faster.02:00
Joey_Fippini just installed ubuntu, but its screwing me over in like 10 ways02:00
nohlaimaginator, thanks. hardly ever somebody help in ubuntu-es. Try in english is easier than find a good soul :(02:00

imartronI've tried 1) bonobo-slay.  2) reboot.  3) reinstall nautilus02:01
imaginatornohla: It's tough sometimes. Perhaps you will gain experience and be able to help people in ubuntu-es :)02:01
imartronI don't know how to work with LD_LIBRARY_PATH or how to find Nautilus_Shell.server02:01
slugone_sry my internet got messed up, the zlib worked, but now it says "requires openssl even though i just reinstalled it " (im trying to make wepdecrypt)  ((((i have a fresh install((yesterday)) ))))02:02

frank23slugone_: you have libssl-dev installed?02:02

tantric132my HD is unallocated...im in here on the live cd...so you say make two ext3 partitions?02:15
nickrudjgodfrey0723: set up your sources properly first.02:15
Pelojgodfrey0723, you are told that a package is broken,  uninstall that pacakge and then reinstall it02:16
jay-oh-enmiraage, where do you have to downgrade to02:16
jay-oh-enmiraage, i mean like what version02:16
AnizukaPelo, okay, I put in the lspci. now how do I find the video card?02:16
mkbernardhey all02:16
arrummzentantric132, I use cfdisk for partitioning... then mkfs.ext3 to make filesystems.02:16
Pelotantric132, yes that is what I said,  basicaly you are makeing two so there is a place older so xp does not install on the whole hdd02:16

BananaMonHello...a quick question: where do I access the list of all startup programs and scripts on Ubuntu 7.1002:17
BananaMonAnd I don't mean System>Sessions02:17
PeloAnizuka,pastebein the resuld of lspci02:17
Pelo!pastebin | Anizuka02:17
ubotuAnizuka: pastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the #ubuntu channel topic)02:17
Joey_Fippinpelo: should i go manual network config?02:17
BananaMonBecause that list is not only not exhaustive, but also not compltely function for me02:17
nickrudtantric132: 3:  one for  /   (around 10gb) , one for swap (2xRam up to 2gb) one for  /home the rest02:17
Joey_Fippininstead of the network manager?02:17
slugone_well im getting close ;) now this is my only error when trying to ./configure (checking for MD5_Init in -lcrypto... no)02:17
Pelojgodfrey0723,  you are in gparted,  the hdd is empty I assume ,  right cclick on it and select add a partiton, then select the size and the format02:18
ahorriblemessman, can someone help me with this sound issue? I updated my alsamixer and I have no sound now..02:18
jay-oh-enJoey_Fippin, yeah you should do it all with gedit :]02:18
Pelojgodfrey0723,  it is fairly intuitive02:18
Joey_Fippinwhats the command for that?02:18
ahorriblemessI enter cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec and it says no such file or directory02:18
tantric132Pelo, do I make two Primary ext3?02:18
miraagejay-oh-en: 2.6.21 works02:18
Peloahorriblemess, type alsamixer in the terminal,   make sure all the sliders are up and not muted02:18
nickrudslugone_: you have libssl-dev  installed?02:18
Pelotantric132, yes , for now,  then delete the first one to install xp to02:18
slugone_yessir ill reinstall though02:18
jgodfrey0723pelo, what does that have to do with reinstalling those packages?02:18
Joey_Fippinjay-oh-en: how do i pull that off?02:19
Pelojgodfrey0723, sorry I'm doing more the one person here I may comfused my suggestion02:19
tantric132Pelo, so delete the first, insert my XP disk into the drive, boot from it, install it on the remaining ext3, and then what?02:19
miraagejay-oh-en: Are you stalling for time or...?02:19
Pelotantric132, no install xp on the empty space , then after that , isntall ubuntu on the ext3 partiton02:20
jay-oh-enmiraage, im looking on google as we speek dude...02:20
jgodfrey0723Pelo,   i completely understand, you do look busy, do you know where i could go to find my answer so as not to bother you with my ultra newbiness?02:20
miraageOh, so am I.02:20
tantric132Pelo, thanks!02:20
nickrudjgodfrey0723: does  apt-cache policy libgnomeui-dev show an installation candidate?02:20

miraagejay-oh-en: All I can see are ways of compiling from src02:20
Pelojgodfrey0723, well if you asked more then what I told you earlier , not sure,  remove the broken package and purge it then reinstall it and try to install what ever it was again02:21

Pelojgodfrey0723, you are doing this in cli ? try doing it with synaptic02:22
miraagejay-oh-en: So there's no way?02:22

VarangerI have recently bought a larger hard disk for backup purposes. The new one is 500 GB and the older one is only 80GB. I am trying to backup the whole 80-gb HD to a file in the second hard disk. I have questions: What filesystem should I use and how can I make the backup & restore process?02:23
MasterShreksquee, probably, but cat /proc/cpuinfo    works fine for me :)02:23
jay-oh-enmiraage, prolly not but im looking02:23
slugone_ure right i see now that lower case l looks atlot like the number 1 on my monitor02:23
jgodfrey0723Pelo, tried that, the file doesn't show up as being installed02:23

craigbass1976I have a strange issue, not finding much in google...  I have eth0 set up as dhcp, and when tryign to restart the netowrk, I get a bunch of  SIOCSIF....: Permission denied errors.  IP stays the same, but I get no default gw, thus can't get out.02:23
BananaMonguys....using Preferences>Sessions for a list of startup programs does not work for me...is there another way to manage startup programs and scripts? In more detail??02:23
jgodfrey0723nickrud, can u elaborate? sorry...02:23
tantric132Pelo, one last question...I must install XP on the empty space before installing ubuntu on the ext3 correct?02:23
Pelo!backup > Varanger check for a private message windows with instructions from ubotu02:23
Joey_Fippinsquee: no scan results on eth102:24

miraagemaybe I can get old .debs for kernel images?02:24
Pelojgodfrey0723, are you sure you ahve the correct spelling ?02:24
jgodfrey0723ubotu, did that and still no good, i'll show u the results i get when trying through synaptic02:24
jay-oh-enmiraage, if you have any chance it would be to look in synaptic for the kernel02:24
Flannelsubichan: you should be able to open it.  It should be world readable.  But, the files are all owned by www-data, your regular user wont be able to edit them02:24
craigbass1976For some reason this drive have been chowned so that uid 500 owned everything.  I set it so that root owned everything except the /home/ contents, and am stuck here02:24
nickrudjgodfrey0723: you have a bot message above02:24
nickrudPelo: he has bad sources, that package is in main02:24
jay-oh-enmiraage, Just search for "linux-kernel"02:24
Pelotantric132, yes, always install windows first that way when ubuntu isntalls it sees xp and puts it in the boot menu02:24
AnizukaPelo, hey, your rightz!02:25
subichanFlannel: do you think I was not given an admin account after all?02:25
tantric132Pelo, so THATS why I kept getting the root system file is not defined?02:25
nickrudcraigbass1976: then you're gonna have problems, a lot of stuff has to be owned by other users02:25
PeloAnizuka,  I occasionnaly am02:25
AnizukaPelo, thanks02:25
AnizukaxD02:25
Pelotantric132, possibly02:25
craigbass1976nickrud, really... even in the folders besides /home?02:25
Flannelsubichan: having an admin account is an entirely independant thing.  You can type "groups" and see if you're in admin02:25
jgodfrey0723Pelo, tried under synaptic, marked for installation, got an error message saying file has unresolved dependencies02:25
tantric132Pelo, you the man! Thanks bro...going to do it now02:25

BananaMonum...so does anyone know if there are alternatives to managing startup programs than Admin>Sessions?02:26
jgodfrey0723Pelo, yes02:26
Pelojgodfrey0723,  and ...02:26
nickrudcraigbass1976: I'm guessing you changed the owner of files like /var/run/klogd ? shouldn't be owned by root02:26
PriceChildBananaMon, system > preferences > sessions ?02:26
jgodfrey0723Pelo, both are unmarked, when i try to install them they come back saying unresolved dependencies, its really weird02:27
nickrudjgodfrey0723: it's not wierd. Have you checked software sources, made sure the first four are selected yet?02:27
BananaMonPriceChild: yeah....but somehow, no matter how I edit that list, programs I have previously removed still startup and do abnormal things02:27
Flanneljgodfrey0723: pastebin your sources.list, you probably have -updates but not the regular gutsy02:27
subichanFlannel: I'm not on that machine and I don't really know how to use secureshell even if I was given the account info, so I'll have to go check tomorrow morning.. what should that command give me by default?02:27
jgodfrey0723nickrud, yes, everything checked that you said to02:27
PriceChildBananaMon, probably because you've broken permissions elsewhere02:27
Pelojgodfrey0723, menu >ssystem > admin > software sources, check every box on the first tab and the backport box on the 3rd tab ,  then try again, close synaptic first02:27
craigbass1976nickrud, I can't remember, but I think I never planned on using this drive again, threw it in a cent box and mounted 'er up (because the new computer is only sata, no ide ports) then chowned everything to me (500 on the cent box)02:27

nickrudjgodfrey0723: then, apt-cache  policy libboboboui2-dev , does it say it has an installation candidate?02:28
Flannelsubichan: well, you're checking the permissions for that folder, its probably drwxr-xr-x  8 root root   4096 2008-01-21 13:56 www (with the date/time being different, of course)02:28
Hilikushow can i check if a disk in my dvd drive is blank?02:28

iDivineAnizuka, What did they tell you to paste..02:58
Brennypocketdrummer, I couldn't tell you for sure if printing would work or not. I would say printer sharing would work, but filesharing from a Windows machine to a hard drive formatted in EXT2/3 won't happen02:58

iDivineAnizuka, It can be a hassle at times, But just try ex: Right clicking, Middle mouse button, Or CTRL + C.02:59

echosystmanyone know how to enable a framebuffer console in ubuntu?02:59

Dr_WillisMrPiracy,  i just use the emerald theme manager tool and click on the theme to use.02:59
astro76pocketdrummer: filesystem type has nothing to do with sharing over the netwrok..02:59
pocketdrummerDr_Willis: Well, I have a computer in another room that has the printer. It is using Windows XP Home. I would like to be able to network these two together so I can't print from this computer.02:59
SupaFlyyup kde is correct frank, cheers02:59

Stepa1How can i change the location of where the files end up with PDF file generator?03:00
danielski_plhow do i kill update manager using comand line?03:00
Dr_Willispocketdrummer,  cups handles the printing shareing. samba handles the folder shares.. I do just what you are talking about all the time.03:00
iDivineRecently, I've been trying to boot into my windows, but it's unsuccessful because I'm greeted with the error 'Disk Read Error, Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart.' But I can boot into ubuntu, and access my windows folders, any help?03:00

zelrikriandohey nickrud03:00
nickrudzelrikriando: good evening03:00
Brennypocketdrummer, alright, I'm wrong then. Disregard me. But yeah, Samba is for files, cups for printer.03:00
Dr_Willispocketdrummer,  share the printer under windows, then use the cups admin tool to add the printer to the linux box's printers lists03:00
bad_cablesis there anyone in here that has the small fonts problem with xfce?03:00
SupaFlysorry frank, was that kwin --replace& or kwin --replace &03:00

pocketdrummerDr_Willis: How do I use Cups? I've never heard of it03:01
Bodencan anyone please tell me how to change the amount of workspaces i have?03:01
SupaFlyand it didnt bring back the window borders btw03:01
iDivineBoden, Have you tried right clicking them?03:01
Dr_Willispocketdrummer,  if you have ever printed on a linux box.. then you are using cups.,03:01
bad_cablesif so, i have the link to fix the small fonts issue in my bookmark folder if you need it...03:01
Anizukaspeedhunt3r, if its too much to ask, could you put that in a copy format :P03:01
BrennyDr_Willis, I think he wants to go backwards though, and print from a windows box to a ubuntu box that has the printer installed locally. Is that any different?03:01
frank23SupaFly: actually you can do alt-f2 and run  kwin --replace03:01
Stepa1How can i change the location of where the files end up with PDF file generator?03:01
Mannequinis there a wat to easily kill a process by name from terminal?03:01
Dr_Willispocketdrummer,  you use the gnome printer config tool.. add the windows shared printer.03:01
toresni'm thinking of buying a thinkpad x61 ... does the intel gma x3100 run well in ubuntu?03:01
BodeniDivine i have, and i think it just gives me options for the toolbar03:01
Dr_WillisBrenny,  sharing a printer on a linxu box to a windows machine is just as easy. :)03:01
iDivineBoden, Try right clicking them, and click preferences, once you do that, a box should pop up, telling you how many you want ;).03:01

Now in ubuntu, i think i see 2 partitions, and in windows, I see 1 C drive at 58GB, and unallocated space at 53GB.  am trying to install ubuntu now, and I'm not sure what to do. It's asking me to partition the disk, but I've already done that, and it seems to see tht it's partitioned b/c the slider for 'new partition size' is03:27
Brennyfitztrev, a lot of them connect to the same network, the gnutella network.03:28
egcheartsblood: i'm curious about that too03:28
CARRESSThe secon partition says free space, nothing for type and mount point, uncheckable Format box, 57116mb as size, and no used space.03:28

hsystemV2Djpenguin, swap must be the double of your ram. But if you have 2gb of ram, dont do a 4gb swap, with 1gb is ok.03:38
Brennydover, you can edit the xorg.conf from terminal, or from an editor on a LiveCD if it's that bad. Edit out all the resolutions you don't want, keeping the one you do.03:38

puffDjpenguin: I've never gotten a definitive answer, but:  1) some folks (fairly knowledgable IIRC) recommended using LVM so I could resize partitions later. 2) Of course you need swap, see hsystemV2's advice, 3) In retrospect, I kinda wish I'd at least had a separate physical partition for /usr, so I could do a clean reinstall without having to worry about backing up user files.03:39

torpedo|dogb4l74z4r: and if you don't need it to print out every filename, you can omit the "v"03:44
hsystemV2Djpenguin, is not necesary at all, but is recommended to have an swap partition, GUESS 1gb is right for you.03:45

If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php?page=DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP305:20

astro76kmg: everything is available through Synaptic06:01
DimitreeI have installed Firestarter and i get tons of events on 6881 and 37928 ?? does the firewall block these ports and posts an event of the block or it simply lists them ?06:01
kmgtantric132: well first you need to untar them, double-click them and they should open in the archive manager, then drag the contents to your desktop06:01
tantric132done06:02

tantric132kmg, I got it...easy as cake. thanks bud06:03
astro76thinman1189: through Synaptic, or sudo apt-get install privoxy06:03
egci.e., is there something specific anybody's done for dvd playback thru gstreamer?06:03

TehLulzeastro76 thanks06:26

emmaThe libfiles seem very esoteric to me. I don't really know what they do or when they are called for. They are like mysteries.06:27

jerrymi have an old version  5.xx  how do i update ubuntu?06:28
aoisoraCan someone help me about me problem thank you !!06:28
nickrudemma: about 95% of the time you don't ever need to know about the libs. It's the complications created by media licensing and patents that causes people to know that one06:29
emmaI see06:29
DoYouNoelknof1, type "dmesg" and check if you see anything on whether your radio is turned on or off06:29

emmaSo perhaps, with most software, the makefile will include the libs06:29
chownermy grub is all black!06:30
nickrudemma: no, the makefile will call those libs. If you get into compiling, you'll need to know about libs 100% of the time ;)06:30

DoYouNoelknof1, it's getting late... if I see you on tomorrow I'll help you w/ it.

Also, there is a network troubleshooting guide on the wiki. otherwise, ask someone else here06:33

Nehalis there a tool to adjust the horizontal/vertical position of my X11 screen, without using xvidtune and editing the configuration files manually?07:02
urakHey guys, Im new to Linux and I have just install gutsy on my vaio laptop but the memory stick reader is always on07:02
speeddemon8803Elaborate urak07:03
abdullaguys can we make an XFCE look like GNOME? and be used similar to GNome ? or is their a difrence because i dunno if its customizable easily l ike gnome is07:03
ianm_what's the consensus these days, ATI or nVidia if Intel's offerings aren't fast enough?07:04
speeddemon8803abdulla, right click a bar, click add new item, add all the items you want, xfce can be configured just by doing that to look exactly like gnome.07:04
urakoverall the desktop is nice but my problem is that the memory stick is always on even though I did not insert anything on it07:04
DimitreeWhat is the best Linux for a web server ? does ubuntu have a web server distribution or something like that ? :)07:05
speeddemon8803!server07:05
ubotuUbuntu Server Edition is a release of Ubuntu designed especially for server environments, including a server-specific !kernel and no !GUI. The install CD contains many server applications. Current !LTS version is 6.06. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ServerFaq/ - The #ubuntu-server channel provides specific support07:05
bazhang#ubuntu-server07:05
Dimitreethank you :)07:05
speeddemon8803Bazhang, they were just asking if we had a server distro..not what room it was :)07:05
bazhanghehe07:05
speeddemon8803close enough though!07:06
speeddemon8803:)07:06
abdullasimplechat, is drapes better then wp changer?07:06
abdullai am considering of installing XFC now :D07:07
speeddemon8803You should...its a lot lighter on your hardware than gnome07:07
speeddemon8803if you have a older computer...it will work REALLY well..heck even a new pc works awesome07:08
abdullaim using a p4 2 ghz laptop  512ram 32mb nividia07:08
abdullabut gnome lags sometimes :S07:08
^futuroHi to all07:09
speeddemon8803you should just do the alternative installer of ubuntu07:09
abdullai just hope its easy to do things like in gnome its easy to install themes and use it07:09
abdullawhat do you mean speeddemon8803 ?07:09
speeddemon8803!alternative07:09
ubotuThe Alternate CD is a classical text-mode installation CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD.  It can also be used as an upgrade CD. - See also !minimal07:09
^futurovista block hdd???07:09
ianm_abdulla: lags how?07:09
speeddemon8803!minimal07:09
ubotuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD07:09
bazhang^futuro: ##windows is for vista ;]07:09
speeddemon8803i install the alternative cd on every pc i have...just so theres no fuss from them.07:10
speeddemon8803it works great.07:10
abdullait lags as when i start 8 things in same time it takes time to open about 11 seconds to have them all opened then07:10
=== slaytani1 is now known as slaytanic
speeddemon8803but..its text-mode...meaning no graphical user interface07:10
abdullaianm_, but if i open 1 app at a time it takes less then 2seconds however im a person who hate lag ;)07:11
speeddemon8803Abdulla...i highly suggest the alternative cd for you :)07:11
abdullaalternative what do yo u mean speed/07:11
abdullai saw that their is alternative download but i didnt know what that means speeddemon880307:12
speeddemon8803its for pc's with less than adequate RAM for the live cd07:12
abdullaim on laptop not pc speeddemon8803 and whats the minimal adequate ram then?07:12

crolle17searching for a file (with "test" in its name) in a specific folder i have to do this,  right? locate -d /home/crolle *test*07:24
alishould I switch to the 64bit version?07:25
bazhangali the benefits are minimal at this point unless you do video compositing or have 4GB or ram or more07:25
bazhangali plus you need to completely reinstall ;]07:26
mahmoud2ali: No, not unless you have a reason to move to 64bit.07:26
_Oz_man07:26
alibzagang: so if I want to switch to 64bit, I must reinstall the whole system?07:27
_Oz_I am still confused by ubuntu's filesystem07:27
speeddemon8803yes ali07:27
bazhangyes ali07:27
_Oz_which says everything about how stupid I am07:27
_Oz_WHERE do applications install??07:27
_Oz_what is the equivalent of C:/Program Files ??07:27
speeddemon8803 /sbin07:27
bazhang!filesystem07:27
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about filesystem - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi07:27
aliok, thanks07:27
bazhangnp07:27
speeddemon8803sbin is the program files equivalent for ubuntu07:28
_Oz_speeddemon: /sbin does not appear on the fulesystem hierarchy standard07:28
mahmoud2_Oz_ : do not take it like that there is an exact equivalent of the stuff in Windows07:28
speeddemon8803i believe07:28
mahmoud2speeddemon8803: sbin is not the program files equivalent07:28
_Oz_mahmoud2: right on, I agree, I just wanted some kind of comparison07:28
speeddemon8803or is it bin07:28
_Oz_I just don't know where the hell anything is floating around in here07:28
speeddemon8803heck i dont know either...thought i did...ill shut up now07:28
crolle17_Oz_, in most cases it's the /usr-folder07:28
* speeddemon8803 is sorry for confusion07:29
^futuroI cant find on google07:29
_Oz_where in the /usr folder?07:29
bazhangfind what ^futuro07:30
speeddemon8803go to /07:30
^futurohow to install ubuntu on fujitsu siemens on amilo li 170507:30
mahmoud2_Oz_ : there is an exact program files equivalent .. In most Linux distributions .. libraries , help documents and binaries are saved separately07:30
speeddemon8803then go to the usr folder07:30
gejr_Oz_: in linux often programs install like this: /usr/bin <- executables /etc/ <- configuration files /home/<user>/.<somefile> <- personal configurations07:30
mahmoud2_Oz_ : there is not*07:30
nodeThere is a patch for this bug on lkml.org already. For the 2.6.24 and I believe 2.6.2207:30
crolle17_Oz_, hard to say. sometimes /usr/lib or /usr/share. depends on the app07:30
mahmoud2_Oz_: Are you trying to locate something?07:30
nodeVery simple patch.07:30
mahmoud2!locate | _Oz_07:30
ubotu_Oz_: locate is a command-line file search utility. To make sure its cache is up to date run: sudo updatedb07:30
bazhang^futuro: you tried the livecd?07:30
bastid_raZor_Oz_; https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LinuxFilesystemTreeOverview is a good page to see where ubuntu puts things07:31
speeddemon8803bastid07:31
outsiders!locate07:31
speeddemon8803i love you!07:31
gejr_Oz_: bigger suites (like openoffice) might go in /opt07:31
outsiders!locate usr07:31
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about locate usr - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi07:31
speeddemon8803i have been trying to find that..for..a LONG time07:31
_Oz_thanks, gejr, that was the best explanation I've heard yet07:31
_Oz_so they go all over the place?07:31
DimitreeWill i be asked to configure LAN setting during Ubuntu Server installation ? if not what is the command to configure lan from terminal ?07:31
crolle17_Oz_, in /usr/share are things which are needed in more  that 1 app. like drivers07:31
bastid_raZorspeeddemon8803; i bookmark tons of useful *nix pages07:31
_Oz_why doesn't that bother anyone that the files are spread out all over the system and it's different for each app?07:31
crolle17searching for a file (with "test" in its name) in a specific folder i have to do this,  right? locate -d /home/crolle *test*07:32
speeddemon8803because we dont care where they are as long as they work ;)07:32
bazhang_Oz_: because its not ##windows ;]07:32
gejr_Oz_: because the package manager keeps them arranged ;) you can easily see where the programs were installed.07:32
^futuroyes i have try07:32
^futurobut live cd don't start07:32
speeddemon88033 answers to the same question..and all correct :P07:32
bazhang^futuro: and got what errors07:32
_Oz_I was trying to figure out where azureus installed so I could tell firefox where to find it07:33
^futuroscreen is black07:33
_Oz_and I COULD NOT find it07:33
_Oz_it was a frustrating experience07:33
crolle17_Oz_, use locate or find07:33
gejr_Oz_: and i'm pretty sure it's /usr/bin/azureus ?07:33
mahmoud2_Oz_: use the locate command07:33
_Oz_just type locate azureus?07:33
^futurowhen i write live install07:33
bastid_raZor_Oz_; normally ~/.azureus is a good place to look07:33
_Oz_I looked there, bastid07:33
bazhang^futuro: you might try the alternate cd as well--what video card in that computer and how much ram07:33
_Oz_but there appeared to be no, uh...  "program file"07:33
^futurogoogle must help me07:33
^futurobye07:33
gejr~/.azureus is a good place to search for configuration files.07:33
_Oz_I should have pointed it to a .conf?07:33
crolle17_Oz_, yeah configuration-files often are in home-dir07:34
_Oz_I was looking for something along the lines of "azureus.exe"07:34
hydoske1what's the way to extract an rpm archive?07:34
mahmoud2_Oz_: no, to the binary07:34
_Oz_so how do I find the actual binary07:34
bazhanghydoske1: look for the deb alternative first07:34
crolle17_Oz_, especially these whom are user-dependent07:34
mahmoud2_Oz_: Linux executable files are not .exe ..07:34
bastid_raZor_Oz_; binary file is what you are referring to. and if you installed via a package manager apt-get, aptitude or synaptic it would be in /usr/bin or if you installed it manually then /usr/local/bin07:34
hydoske1bazhang -out of the question, the deb package is missing what I need, it's a known bug07:35
outsidershello everybody07:35
speeddemon8803Please PLEASE watch the hidden files on your system, as like in windows...you start screwing with hidden files...linux can break07:35
hydoske1I need to extract an rpm - anybody have any ideas?07:35
bazhanghydoske1: what app07:35
elknof1gnite07:35
crolle17searching for a file (with "test" in its name) in a specific folder i have to do this,  right? locate -d /home/crolle *test*07:35
speeddemon8803!alien07:35
ubotuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous)07:35
elknof1thanks all07:35
_Oz_ok, so I used 'locate azureus' and many files appeared...  which one is the binary?07:35
speeddemon8803!rpm07:35
hydoske1bazhang - avr-libc is missing packages for the tiny2407:35
outsiders!alien07:35
ubotuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous)07:35
gejr_Oz_: my favourite way of doing this is: "find / -perm u+x -name "*myprog*"" it search the entire disk (/) for programs that are executable for a user, for a file named "myprog"07:36
bazhanghydoske1: you will get much grief and likely little support if you choose to go that route--very risky07:36
hydoske1speeddemon8803 - alien won't do it, i need a file inside the RPM, not to install it07:36
_Oz_ouch, gejr07:36
DezineHow can I remove the drive icons for my mounted windows partitions from my desktop without unmounted them?07:36
_Oz_I am trying to escape windows, but the command line is still something I'm barely capable of handling07:36
hydoske1bazhang - I need it though, and I'm almost certain it will work07:36
speeddemon8803Please avoid doing the same command numerous times in a row as it can bog down the bot, and if you must experiment, try /msg ubotu <<!factoid>> Thanks!07:37
hydoske1I've done a lot of research on it07:37
bazhangalmost certain heh07:37
gejr_Oz_: i guess locate can do it too, but i never use that. I hate having to do "updatedb" to reindex before every search.07:37
_Oz_it seems unreasonable to have to remember a command line command like that (or to even have to type it) just to find the file that the app is asking me for07:37
_Oz_why do you have to updatedb before every search, exactly?07:37
hydoske1yes, almost certain07:37
gejrlocate keeps a database of all files07:37
bazhang_Oz_: what are you trying to do exactly07:37
hydoske1and if I'm wrong, I don't have a mess on my hands "like I would with the alien solution"07:37
Dezinenevermind07:38
gejrit updates its once per 24 hours (usually during night)07:38
_Oz_bazhang: I was downloading a torrent07:38
DezineUbuntu Tweak let me change it07:38
hydoske1I told you, avr-libc from the repositories has a known bug where it's missing support for the microcontroller I'm trying to program07:38
_Oz_I wanted azureus to accept the download from firefox rather than save the torrent file to disk07:38
gejrif you've just installed a program you have to reindex that database to find its files07:38
_Oz_so firefox said, "Which program do you want to open this with?"07:38
_Oz_and I couldn't tell it07:38
_Oz_because I couldn't find it07:38
bazhangDezine: ubuntutweak? what is that07:38
=== Kwitschibo_ is now known as Kwitschibo
_Oz_(and still can't find it)07:38
bastid_raZor_Oz_; how did you install azureus?07:38
gejr_Oz_: go to commandline and type "which azureus" ?07:38
_Oz_add/remove programs07:38
hydoske1bazhang - I told you, avr-libc from the repositories has a known bug where it's missing support for the microcontroller I'm trying to program07:38
gejrwhat does that return?07:38
hydoske1bazhang - so I need to extract a precompiled file that would add support for this microcontroller from an RPM that has it07:39
_Oz_well, nothing now07:39
DezineIt's a program I found looking around online, let's you tweak some settings.07:39
_Oz_I removed azureus heh07:39
bastid_raZor_Oz_; do the same step you did before with the torrent.. simply type /usr/bin/azureus  .. that is where it is located.07:39
gejr_Oz_: ah ;)07:39
_Oz_installed deluge, which firefox somehow "found"07:39
Dezinebazhang, http://ubuntu-tweak.com/downloads07:39
bazhanghydoske1: no idea how to do that--sorry07:39
_Oz_but I was asking so that next time I could do this the right way07:39
_Oz_this seems like it should be simple but I must be missing something very obvious because I'm still totally confused07:40
_Oz_I just want to tell the app where it can find a binary07:40
bastid_raZor_Oz_; write this down binary files are located in /usr/bin /usr/local/bin07:40
_Oz_ok07:40
_Oz_pretty much always?07:40
bastid_raZor_Oz_; unless you tell them to be in a different place, yes07:41
_Oz_I just run the package install07:41
_Oz_and let it do its thing07:41
_Oz_so I assume they go there, then07:41
bastid_raZor_Oz_; /usr/bin would be where they go if you do it that way.07:41
bazhangDezine: that works for you?07:41
SoludraIs it possible to cause the BACKSPACE key, when using Firefox, to go back a page instead of acting as a page up?07:41
DezineYeah it works just fine07:42
bazhangdezine then what is the issue?07:42
DezineNothing, I didn't know it could take them off. I just looked again and say it.07:42
Dezinesaw it*07:43
_Oz_soludra: yes07:43
bazhangdezine I would guess that ubuntutweak is as well supported as automatix around here ;]07:43
_Oz_soludra: type "about:config" in your firefox address bar07:43
_Oz_then search for "backspace"07:43
_Oz_change that value from 1 to 007:43
SoludraAaah. Thanks.07:43
DezineWell I don't need any support for it, was looking for help about the icons but looked at the program for the heck of it and it solved my problem.07:43
_Oz_You're welcome.07:43
_Oz_ok, gotta rest myownself.07:44
_Oz_Thanks, everyone, for the help in trying to make my muddled mind understand the obvious.07:44
_Oz_I know it's annoying to explain ultra-obvious stuff like.07:44
bastid_raZor_Oz_; command line kicks ass once you learn it07:44
_Oz_like that, rather.07:44
_Oz_bastid: I'm sure it does...  and I have been using it more, slowly.07:45
speeddemon8803i agree bastid07:45
_Oz_What's the kybd shortcut for terminal?07:45
gejr_Oz_: keep the spirit up, you'll get used to it after a while :)07:45
_Oz_gejr: thanks. :)07:45
speeddemon8803yup07:45
speeddemon8803it took me like a week07:45
DezineWhat's the difference between aptitide and apt-get and which should I use?07:45
_Oz_doesn't terminal have a shortcut like the run command (alt-f2?)07:46
speeddemon8803!aptitude07:46
ubotuaptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. Like other APT front-ends, it can install/remove packages and their dependencies (on Dapper and earlier, however, only aptitude keeps track of unused dependencies). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptitudeSurvivalGuide07:46
speeddemon8803!apt-get07:46
ubotuAPT is the Advanced Package Tool, which together with dpkg forms the basic Ubuntu package management toolkit. Short apt-get manual: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGetHowto - Also see !Synaptic (Gnome) or !Adept (KDE)07:46
speeddemon8803You should use aptitude whenever possible dezine07:46
bazhangDezine: personal preference really07:46
speeddemon8803well...true07:46
speeddemon8803:)07:46
bazhangheh07:46
DezineOk, thank you. Seems the more I read the more I see "aptitude" rather than apt-get.07:46
gejr_Oz_: you must define your own shortcuts.. google for keyboard shortcuts in gnome if you don't know how.07:46
bazhangthough apt-get is getting new functions in hardy ;]07:47
bastid_raZor_Oz_; type $PATH  .. that should show you a list of where ubuntu looks for binaries07:47
speeddemon8803Hardy in general is getting a lot of goodies :)07:47
bazhangyesh07:48
speeddemon8803i cant wait07:48

ethan961Bodsa, you spelled "anonymous"wrong...08:29
_rubencrolle__: use "host" or "nslookup" with the ip as parameter08:29
metvetskithat's because he's a nonconformist!08:30

bazhangsee above mike__08:31
BodsdaAdamrooski, check out      asoundconf list    how many are there?08:31
_rubencrolle__: 192.168.178.23 is an internal ip address, so unless you have a nameserver in your internal network, you wont get a hostname for that08:31
Adamrooskijust SB08:31
Adamrooskithat's the only 108:31
crolle___ruben, o.k.08:32
Adamrooskiand i set it as default08:32

ethan961I izzz nozz ztownedd...08:32
BodsdaAdamrooski, ok,.,.hhmm,.,. sorry im not the best with sound,.,. errm,.,. i doubt its your card08:32

bazhangfor compiz its screenlets mike__08:32
DrOnlinecrolle__: did you mean their Widowsesque "computer name"? (though I don't know how to find that out either) It's Samba related as far as I know08:33
mike__ohh ok, cuze gdesjkets just don't look good08:33

ethan961superkaramba ftw08:34
Bodsdabazhang, you kde users are traitors/defectors08:34
M-NagatoAdamrooski, how about doing lspci | grep audio, does it display the correct card(s)?08:34
bazhangBodsda: tis true08:34
Bodsda;~)08:34
mike__i am on ubuntu and i guess gnome+compiz08:34
crolle__DrOnline, i meant the dns-entry. the server is not a windows-one. i think the answer of _ruben was correctly.08:34
Bodsdaway!!! compiz ftw!!08:34
ethan961haha, the gnome part...08:34
bazhangmike__: then screenlets should do it08:34
AdamrooskiM-Nagato it doesn't display anything08:34
CVD-PRim gonna have problems if i install ubuntu64 instead of the 32?08:34
mike__i try searching for them, can'r find08:35
M-Nagatohm, it is a pci sound card (or onboard) and not a usb, right?08:35
bazhangCVD-PR: not much of a benefit at this point08:35
Adamrooskionboard08:35
Adamrooskilaptop08:35
DrOnlinecrolle__: if you meant dns, then yeah his answer was absolutely correct08:35
CVD-PR32bit is simply more reliable?08:35
bazhangCVD-PR: less problematic shall we say ;]08:35
CVD-PRok08:35
DrOnlinecrolle__: 192.168.x.x is not globally routable so you'd only be able to see it if you were using your own DNS server08:35
