credibleCyr4x: his problem is that his titlebars aren't changing00:12
arbiris un-installing emerald....00:12
crediblearbir: because emerald doesn't use your gnome theme, it has its own theme format00:12

Cyr4xthat's no. 1 feature to implement in gimp00:15
Wafflei was wondering about that00:15
arfonzo... any help for removing all X-related packages?00:15

Cyr4xthere were many mockups on gimp forums00:15
ogremneptok:  well i have all the music stored on ipod. i just need to get it back off there somehow00:15
mneptokNemesisD: whatever you choose00:15
Cyr4xmaybe in 2.6 or 3...00:15
red22prince_jammys: no luck?00:16
NemesisDLjL, its kind of a special case because im referring to a persistent installation on a flash drive00:16
mneptokogre: you can switch the iPod connection setting so that it appears as a standard mass storage device. that way you don;t need iTunes.00:16
owhI'm trying to make an Atheros 5007EG/ar242x wifi card work under gutsy. I suspect that installing the svn trunk from madwifi will work, but I want it installed in such a way that I can upgrade it when a new Ubuntu version comes out - any suggestions?00:16
LjLNemesisD: on the live CD, the username is "ubuntu" and the password is ""00:16
prince_jammysred22: getting there00:16
crediblearbir: in compiz, there are two decorators you can use, gtk-window-decorator is the default one that uses your gnome theme, emerald is another one that has "flashier" themes00:16
egcmneptok: if you do that, do the menus still work?00:16
NemesisDLjL, thats a space?00:17

Wafflei tried this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=240543 but i cant get it to work00:17

mneptokogre: http://www.iconlockit.com/iPodDiskUse.htm00:19
mneptok:/00:19
LjLWaffle: that's pretty much a terrible hack anyway... couldn't you perhaps just use GIMP in its own virtual desktop?00:19
NemesisDLjL, would that not work on ssh for some reason00:19
Jangariegc: what are you trying to do?00:19
LjLNemesisD: unsure00:19
lllsondowlllSo anymore Ideas?00:19
WaffleLjL: how would i go about setting that up?00:19
NemesisDuuugh00:20
LjLWaffle, it's already set up - your Ubuntu comes with two desktops (i think) by default, which can be selected from a switcher next to the notification area00:20
Waffleoh i thought you meant a third desktop within one of the two00:20
lllsondowlllGuess not?00:20
clic1QUESTION:  so I installed flash adobe shit, I have firefox and after watching a few youtubes, it just goes blank and won't come back, it works if I restart firefox, but how to fix?00:21

LjLWaffle: no, i just meant it may be simpler and, at the end of the day, equivalent to that hack, to just use a separate desktop for the GIMP00:21
Waffleyea00:21
Wafflethat makes sense00:21
Waffleunless i want to have something else quickly accessible in that desktop00:22

lllsondowlllSo theres not a solution to my problem?00:22

owhegc: Ot00:22
LjLlllsondowlll: "sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf" (not /etcx11 by the way...) doesn't give you any "options", it's just a text file. the video driver choice *is* there, somewhere. but a better way to change the video driver selection, anyway, is to use dpkg-reconfigure00:23

leeping2009Hi there: I'm getting kernel panics when doing system cloning.  Could the Linux kernel be at fault? (I'm blindly troubleshooting)00:36
capital86im me on there....johnathon495@hotmail.com00:36
leeping2009Or, alternatively, could the hard drive be corrupted??00:36

cubias8719how can i get the applications installed and running00:37
Dr_willisleeping2009  ubuntu uses the 'uuid' of disks to mount them and even grub uses the uuid #;s - that may be your issue00:37

mehmeti need a program to take pictures from my webcam00:38
LjLWaffle, my honest suggestion is to just stick to the GIMP and get used to the window managing... it's the best free raster editor around, and if many people like the multiple-windows interface, it must mean it can be got to terms with00:38
leeping2009Dr_willis: If that is the problem, how do I prevent Ubuntu from using UUID?00:38
Dr_willisleeping,  edit the files using them and replace them with /dev/hd## or whatever00:39

leeping2009LjL: I'm using systemimager-server.  Previously I was using dd through netcat.  When dd through netcat failed, I fell back to systemimager and I'm still getting panics00:45

leeping2009LjL:  When I use systemimager, I retrieve the image from the golden client onto the image server first; that occurs without errors.  It's when sending the image to the other clones that I get the error.  When I use dd and netcat, only the receiving end gets the error.00:45

Exershiohey everyone. I decided to do a fresh install on Gutsy, and I installed my Radeon 9550 drivers through the restricted drivers manager, and they're performing great (and 3d acceleration is installed), however, Compiz still wont work. >_> I enabled the composite extension in xorg.conf, and now it just says "failed to initialize desktop effects"00:48
iceswordnickrud, hi,is this (support this channel) your job?00:48
leeping2009LjL: Let's see what happens00:48
LjLleeping2009: well, to me that sounds like it's the networking, since you've tried different ways to transfer and different computers... i wonder if it could simply be that, for some reason, your computers miss interrupts from the network card, and when they miss too many (like when there's a transfer in progress), the kernel takes it badly. have you tried the standard universal medicines - "noapic", "noacpi", "acpi=off", and in this case specifically, i'd00:48
LjLconsider "irqpoll"?00:48
nickrudicesword: nah, my pasttime00:48
rhizophibbit: the "x" in "7.x" actually matters, or could matter in your case00:48

Cyr4xyou just have to set it up properly in your xorg conf00:50
leeping2009LjL: However I should mention that it doesn't always kill the interrupt handler, sometimes it doesn't get to the words "Kernel panic" and the system will hang .. in other instances it will quit because of an error in the rsync data stream00:50

ExershioCyr4x: okay, thanks00:50
rhizophibbit:  i bet "man apt-get" has the answer...  get into a habit of *reading* before you issue commands at your prompt ( also, you'll probably find "aptitude" more to your liking as a newcommer to ubuntu / debian realm )00:50

amenadoZeddie-> it normally keeps the old one, you looked in /boot ?00:53

Dr_willisKalamansi,  the package manager keeps its cache in /var/cache/apt/archives - You will need to use the root user to write things to that place.   I would just use the bash shell to do the copying.   It may be very very worth while for you to read a bash guide or 2 befor messing with the system files in such a way01:02

Zeddie<amenado> Zeddie-> you have not booted yet, so you were not able to see your /boot dir <--- yeah and unfortunately that stuffs me up01:03

leeping2009LjL: The system did not crash, I got an error in the rsync protocol data stream.  The top of the error output reads "general protection fault: 0000 [1] SMP CPU 0"01:03
Crusader_TechThe required daemon (vpnc) isn't available, you will not be able to use this connection until the daemon is not installed.01:03
Dr_willisKalamansi,  the basics.. sudo cp /path/tp/the/files/* /var/cache/01:03
egcyou can configure it through the network manager gui01:03
Crusader_Techthat comes up when I try to make a cisco type connection.01:03
Dr_willisoops ive the full path at the last . :)01:03
cubias8719i went on the restricted drivers and it said nvidia-glx is not enable. do you know how i enable it?01:03
red22prince_jammys: so you get a script going or what?01:03
amenadoZeddie-> you have the liveCD ? boot from it and go  to recovery mode, then mount your normal partition for /01:03
egcCrusader_Tech: did you use synaptic to install vpnc?01:04
prince_jammysred22: yes01:04
prince_jammysred22: seems to work01:04
LimCorelinux-image-2.6.22-14-generic  is still ownable by vmsplice exploit. is it ok?01:04
LjLleeping2009: that's still a kernel error as far as i can gather01:04
Crusader_Techno, it's kvpnc from add/remove01:04
DevoI'm trying to install Ubuntu for Dual boot with Windows and I'm at the partitioning part, and I have read guides and they say there should be an option that says "Guided - resize disk" or something like that, but mine only says "Guided - resize entire disk"... What do I do?01:04
Cyr4xdo you know any app that will scan chosen folder for mp3's and do a .pls or .m3u playlist from it?01:04
namelesshi01:04
leeping2009LjL: I imagine so.  I will now attempt to load the image that "worked" for the "new" pair of computers, onto the computers that crashed01:04
egcCrusader_Tech: try going thru synaptic, it may process dependencies more fully01:04
egcit worked for me01:05
Crusader_Techdoing it now egc01:05
leeping2009LjL: The only issue there is that the "new" pair of computers have different hardware...01:05
red22i'm messing around with a script on a page given by Dr_willis but it needs a little tweaking... still working on it01:05
amenadoCrusader_Tech-> but at the server end, is it configured to run a corresponding server for kvnc?  or is sshd on it already?01:05
namelesssomeone know how to share file between ubuntu and osx ?01:05
red22can i see what you got?  paste bin it somewhere ?01:05
prince_jammys!paste01:05
ubotupastebin 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)01:05
amenadonameless->  nfs  ?01:05
namelessyes01:05
amenadonameless->  ftp, or scp...lots of ways01:05
leeping2009LjL: Maybe this info will help: I've gotten repeated segfaults when installing ubuntu over the network on this source computer that's causing the crashing01:05
namelessamenado, lan01:06
rhizonameless:  use ssh filesystem - you need sshd service on ubuntu, and there's a thingie for OS X01:06
Crusader_Technot sure.  It's an Astaro security gateway, and I normally connect by using the built-in windows XP VPN client.  No fancy settings. just an IP address and a login.01:06
egcCrusader_Tech: i also don't have kvpnc installed...just vpnc and network-manager-vpnc01:06
leeping2009LjL: I had to install with a CD to finally get it to work01:06
LjLleeping2009: but a googleable one, and one that when google shows promising hits. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-source-2.6.22/+bug/133575 to begin with, and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-source-2.6.20/+bug/147798 - both related to network copying of big files, regardless of medium. perhaps, uhm, perhaps is it just happening after 2/4Gb? (hope not). or, are the computers 64-bit?01:06
rhizoCrusader_Tech:  sudo aptitude install network-manager-vpnc01:06
amenadonameless nfs is network file system, you load the client and an nfs server on the other side sharing it01:06
LimCorelinux-image-2.6.22-14-generic  is still ownable by vmsplice exploit. is it ok?01:06
rhizonfs also sucks01:06
rhizossh for the win :)01:06
leeping2009LjL: Are you asking about whether it's happening after a certain amount of data transferred? No, it happens almost instantly.  And yes, the computers are 64-bit (Q6600 processor)01:07
KalamansiDr_willis : im in var/cache/apt/archives there is a folder there named "partial".. ill paste in the folder "partial"?01:07
amenadoLimCore-> you have other users on your system you dont trust? if by yourself dont worry too much01:07
Crusader_Techdoing it now Rhizo01:07
jumbersIf I connect 2 Ubuntu notebooks with a crossover cable, what would I have to do to be able to transfer files?01:07
leeping2009LjL: I'll look at what you came up with.  I wasn't able to find much on Google myself so that's why I came here :)01:07
LjLleeping2009: then, although it talks about old kernels, http://www.issociate.de/board/post/299182/general_protection_fault:_0000_[1]_SMP.html seems relevant01:07

mike-ethis is ridiculous, i did a fresh re-install because something on ubuntu screwed my sound up, it worked fine after the reinstallation, i let it do it's glob of 'updates' and now it's screwed up again01:09
leeping2009LjL: Oh, I think this might be the issue... 64-bit DMA causes data corruption with atl1.  That's precisely the network driver that I'm using!01:09
TheZealotHas anyone else ever not been able to double click on a .deb package to unpackage it? I can do it in the command prompt, but not the gui app...01:09

prince_jammysred22: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56571/01:09
DevoHow do I partition my harddrive with the Ubuntu installer so that I can dual boot between Windows and Ubuntu?01:09
AmaranthLimCore: Err01:09
LjLleeping2009: maybe, but don't disregard the 4GB boundary even though it's happening before reaching that... bug #133575 is open for the *Gutsy* kernel01:09
prince_jammysred22: will not work if you have files with the same name in different folders01:10
Crusader_TechOk.  this is the first thing I've come across that is actually requiring some work in Ubuntu.  I'm used to the "click and it works" VPN client in XP.  What was that ssh you were talking about?01:10
prince_jammysred22: wouldnt be hard to make that change, though01:10
Kalamansiamenado : dpkig command not found ....01:10
LjLleeping2009: ah right nevermind, that *is* the bug you're talking about01:10
HitmanDevo, during the installation, it will ask you how much of the current disk you would like to dedicate to the installation of ubuntu. You just specify it there01:10
AmaranthLimCore: You mean the vmsplice thing? It tends to be a denial of service attack more than a privilege escalation thing01:11
DevoHitman: When does it say that?01:11
leeping2009LjL: Now for a novice question, can I update to 2.6.23 despite the fact that the newest Ubuntu kernel is 2.6.22?01:11
amenadoCrusader_Tech-> it dont matter if it was windows, the server side has to be running a server services, if it was vpn, a vpn server, in ssh case, sshd01:11
AmaranthLimCore: it's more likely to corrupt memory than let someone take over01:11
prince_jammysred22: obviously you have to change the mntpnt variable to whatever your mount point is01:11
mehmeti have this error from camorama "Couldn't connect to video device (/dev/video0) Please check connection."01:11
amenadoKalamansi->   dpkg -i   note the spaces and spelling01:11
HitmanOnce you boot from the live cd into gnome and initiate the install icon01:11
leeping2009LjL: I'm asking this because apparently the 2.6.23 kernel fixes the issue - it disables 64-bit DMA with atl101:12
DevoHitman: It gave me 3 options, Guided - Use entire disk, Guided - Use largest continguous free space, and Manual...01:12
Hitmanit lets you review it very well before you "commit" any changes so don't sweat it01:12
mike-eSomething on ubuntu is making my audio only as loud as a soft conversation, with master volume maxed, pcm maxed, speakes maxed. I just did a fresh install and it was fine, after ubuntu did it's updates it was screwed up again. PLEASE HELP01:12
LjLleeping2009: this channel doesn't support that sort of thing... you might be able to get it from the Hardy repositories, cross your finger, and have it work... but then you're kind of on your own.01:12
amenadoDevo select Manual01:12
leeping2009LjL: Thanks, by the way.  Finding the problem by myself was going to take weeks!01:12
amenadoDevo-> then adjust the partition sizes accordingly01:12
phibbitThe Live CD starts booting, goes through Loading essential drivers & mounting root file system, and then it stops (the first time, it eventually said "The drive appears confused).01:13
Hitmanit will detect the ntfs partition and should add it to the boot menu automatically01:13
Cyr4xhow to do an sh script that will scan chosen folder for mp3's and will save them to a text file (paths to them)01:13
Crusader_TechAmenado: In that case I need to find out what it's running.  But the fact that XP's VPN client doesn't ask me what kind of connection to use, doesn't help figure out what kind of connection it is?01:13
Kalamansihow to download all packages and updates in ubuntu 7.10 desktop? direct to the site...01:13
Devoamenado: Ok... Should I make the Ubuntu partition Logical or Primary?01:13
Kalamansiamenado : are you pinoy?01:13
amenadoCrusader_Tech-> off course it does, how do you know what is running at the opposite end?01:13
LjLleeping2009: nah, the last error you gave was the key, if you had got it before you'd have found it on google. anyway, to get the Hardy kernel, you can check http://packages.ubuntu.com for the packages that the kernel depends on, download all those, and dpkg -i. the comforting thing is that you'll still be able to boot from the Gutsy kernel if things go wrong... but that doesn't guarantee too much, either.01:14
mehmetcan anyone help?01:14
amenadoKalamansi-> what is that?01:14
LimCoreAmaranth: you are mistaken01:14

Pelomehmet, webcam in ubuntu are tricky specialy the cheap ones,  ( don'T mean your's is cheap) , the best i can do for you is give you the webcam tutorial link01:14
Pelo!webcam > mehmet check for a private message windows with instructions from ubotu01:15
LjLleeping2009: or if you're in a hurry, you could just put the entire Hardy main/restricted in your sources.list, and install the kernel, but if you do that, be very careful in case it tries to slip other packages under your nose (and remember to remove those repositories when you're finished with them, as well...)01:15

mehmetand it's a built in one01:15
prince_jammysred22: dealt with that01:16
Pelomehmet, you can also try looking up your model in the forum for extra instructions  www.ubuntuforums.org01:16
amenadoKalamansi  i guess you can attempt to use the synaptic and check all ?01:16
Devoarmando: It only gives me the options of Primary and Logical.01:16
prince_jammysred22: thats why it took as long as it did, tested with spaces01:16
red22prince_jammys: ok, i'll check that out.. the other script i was working didn't handle that so well... seems the spaces were output as underscores by default01:16
andresmujicahey anyone knows if i can request a receipt by DEFAULT for all the messages i sent? thnks in advance01:16
leeping2009LjL: I think I'll download the kernel manually, I don't want too many Hardy packages to be installed on the Gutsy system. :)  Thanks again, I appreciate it!01:16
red22prince_jammys: nice then01:16
andresmujicain evolution i mean01:16

andresmujicawhitor:  cheese01:17
egcmike-e: did u get that?01:17
prince_jammysred22: it can definitely deal with spaces in the directory names -- did not test with spaces in the file names ... but should work01:17
Whitorandresmujica, ... ok01:17
Kalamansiamenado01:17
Cyr4xjacob: that's impossible01:17
amenadoDevo-> amenado is the nick.. but yes you can install in primary or logical,  usually you try to make 3 primaries and 1 logical (that can be subdivided some more)01:18
egcjacob_: i second Cyr4x01:18
Cyr4xafaik text mode uses 720xSOMETHING resolution01:18

prince_jammysred22: seeing as the script turned out to be short, it's bound to be out there... as you see, no files are written anywhere except for the folder where you run it, so try it out01:19
jacob_OK, thanks01:19
mehmethow do i find out the driver for my webcam?01:19

prince_jammysred22: oh and only links to drive C: as you see01:20
Devoamenado: The Fat16 or the Fat32?01:20
amenadoDevo both01:21
Devoamenado: Fat16: 33 MB and Fat32: 2300 MB.01:21
amenadoDevo and tell us, what is the layout of the existing partitions?01:21
Devoamenado: What do you mean by layout?01:21
Jangarimehmet, do some googling, find some pictures if necessary, to establish the model, finding a driver from there should be easy01:21
Kalamansiamenado : route -ran is not working. neither route -r01:21
amenadoDevo  is fat16  /dev/hda0  then fat32 /dev/hda1 ?01:22
mehmetJangari:  the model to the laptop or the webcam itself?01:22
amenadoKalamansi perhaps just  route -n01:22
Jangarior, mehmet, type lsusb and note the hardware number, which should be useful to identify which driver it uses01:22
Jangarithe webcam itself01:22
Devoamenado: Fat16 is /media/sda1 and Fat32 is /media/sda3.01:22

red22prince_jammys: yeah i see.  the other route i was taking was to run something similar but only for a sppecific file, then to associate .lnk files with the script so you can double-click em from gnome.  that should be possible and work too right?01:24
Devoamenado: There is no /dev/sda0 and on /dev/sda2 is the Windows partition with NTFS and a size that I want to make 216004 MB and 71400 use MB.01:24

prince_jammysred22 not sure what you mean .. the files created can be double clicked on01:24
amenadoDevo-> right, i forget sometimes..no sda0 , so you already have /dev/sda0 and set to how much?01:24

vrkhansBohlizk i tryied ps x but there is no listing for firefox01:26
red22prince_jammys: your script runs all over the c drive and creates a folder full of links right?  well i was thinking of creating a prg that takes a single link and just follows/executes it.01:26
amenadoDevo what is the size now?01:26
Priceyexst_mhua, judging by the question, you should not be using it until its release.01:26

exst_mhuaPricey, i see, thanks01:26
arbirvrkhans: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_in_use01:26
red22prince_jammys: then you can have that script execute each time you double click a .lnk file in nautilus and it's like gnome can understand lnk files01:26
Devoamenado: Probably a little less.01:26

amenadoDevo they exist prior to you trying to do this install, ie you had an existing xp on /dev/sda2 ?01:28
red22prince_jammys: then you can use the same lnk files between windows and linux. and you'd find them in the same place in linux that you left them in windows.01:28
Nissan_350Zi cant download it, its too slow01:28
Devoamenado: Yes.01:28
arbirvrkhans: if you goto your $HOME/.mozilla/firefox directory01:29

arbirvrkhans:you will see a weird looking directory name, that is your profile directory01:29
amenadoDevo-> okay now do you have /dev/sda4 as empty space basically? or you are trying to reduce what you have now to give room for linux?01:29

arbiri have been trying to install a theme and i see this line in the directions... "Install the Beryl and GTK theme as usual"  what does this mean ?01:30
prince_jammysred22: yeah you wouldnt have to change that .. you would just scrap the whole "find" bit, and the prog would have to take the lnk file name as a parameter01:30
arbirGTK theme is something i am running, is it not ?01:30
prince_jammysred22: yes, doubleclicking a lnk file01:30
amenadoDevo okay, and you do have enuff free space yes? or you're attempting to take it from the existing ones?01:31
Devoamenado: I do have enough free space.01:31
red22prince_jammys: no it doesn't work.. i tried (more than once ;)01:31
jcg42How can I make Amarok look more like the human theme?01:31
Nissan_350Zanyone know how to request a Alternative CD on the Shipit page? that didnt help... my computer is too slow for the LiveCD01:31
k1nghow do i use firefox downloading a file via "open with" and bash script i try: mv $1 /home/k1ng/Desktop/ but no avail.. :(01:31
red22prince_jammys: you'd figure that they would have included this as default behavior by now though right01:31
amenadoDevo-> okay, then just create from the remaining free spaces,  a  / ,  a swap space and /home partition01:31
amenadoNissan_350Z-> computers are plenty fast, however dial connection maybe slow..01:32
Devoamenado: How do I create a swap... and do I have to make a /home partition and are those 3 seperate partitions?01:32
prince_jammysred22: yeah, fortunately after parsing the C: line in the link file, after converting \ to / and scrapping the C:, all you have to do is append the result to the mnt point to get the full path01:33
rhizoweird, the firefox ProfileManager issue maybe a *firefox2* issue, not an ubuntu bug01:33
amenadoDevo yes 3 partitions, somewhere in the selection you can tell it to make a swap partition01:33
Nissan_350Zamenado> i have the LiveCD but i need the alternative CD the text based installer ;)01:33
ubuntuga   hello01:33
RootyRootRootW00Hi, how do I update this code to work with Gutsy?01:33
Devoamenado: Ok.01:33
RootyRootRootW00mplayer -vo null -ao pcm -ao pcm:file=audio.wav:fast dvd://0101:33
Devoamenado: How big should I make the /home partition?01:33
amenadoNissan_350Z-> while on liveCD and if you have internet connectivity you can download it and save it to hard disk..off course you have to mount the partition before you can store to it01:34
Nissan_350Zamenado> when i start the LiveCD to install it locksup01:34
red22prince_jammys: i'm just worried about having to handle different file types... what command would send the file name to gnome for opening with the appropriately associated program?01:34
Nissan_350Zamenado> i have really slow internet, lol01:34
k1nghow do i use firefox downloading a file via "open with" and bash script i try: mv $1 /home/k1ng/Desktop/ but no avail.. :(01:34
amenadoDevo make / about 7-10gig  /swap about 2x your ramsize  and /home upwards of several gigs01:34
rhizolet me rephrase:  was anyone able to use n+1 firefox2.* profiles simultaneously under *any* OS ?01:34
Nissan_350Zi need a boot command to disable somethings so it ill run, know of any?01:34
vrkhansarbir i found the firefox directory in /etc , there is a profile directory but in that dir there is no lock and .parentlock file/01:34

arbirvrkhans:  in ur home directory there should be a .mozilla directory01:35
prince_jammysred22: you can probably do this from the gui (move the final prog somewhere like /usr/local, for example)01:35
arbirvrkhans: can you confirm that ?01:35
prince_jammysred22: !defaultapp01:35
vrkhansin my home dir there is only the example dir01:35
amenadoNissan_350Z-> it may just be taking its sweet time to show you things, while booting, you can ctrl +alt+F1 F2 F3 .. to see what is going on, also you have to be patient..liveCD is slow indeed01:35
vrkhansno other dir01:35
prince_jammys!defaultapp | red22 might just do it on its own01:35
ubotured22 might just do it on its own: To change the default application for a filetype in Nautilus, right-click on a file, select Properties -> Open With, and then change the setting. In Kubuntu, Konqueror -> Settings -> Configure and then hit "File Associations"01:35
Nissan_350Zoh ok, amenado :D thanks a bunch, its running 160MB of ram though01:36
Nissan_350Zso i should continue with the LiveCD?01:36
prince_jammysred22: then when you click on it the shell would run :::   /usr/local/bin/your_prog  file.lnk01:36
vrkhansarbir in my home dir i have only two dir desktop and examples01:36
arbirvrkhans: ls -la01:37
Devoamenado: When I made my / partition from the free space and made it only 10 GB from the 30 GB of free space, it turned the leftover 20 GB into unusable space...01:37
amenadoNissan_350Z-> how else are you going to download the alternate cd?01:37
tanathi'm unable to type in a java-based app. anyone know why that might be? i've seen this before, but before i was able to fix it somehow01:37
prince_jammysred22: and the file name would be $1 in your prog01:37
leeping2009LjL: The systemimager worked !!!01:37
tanathi can click to change the focus, but it ignores my typing01:37
arbirvrkhans: you will have to open the prompt window01:37
Nissan_350Zamenado> i thought they would have a Alternative CD they could send me01:37
amenadoDevo-> you dont like to make a separate one for /home? how about /swap  ?  dont forget this /swap01:37
vrkhansarbir you mean the xterm01:38
amenadoNissan_350Z-> they probably do, ask them nicely :)01:38
Devoamenado: I can't make /swap... the free space turned into unusable space...01:38
vrkhansi am on that01:38

amenadoNissan_350Z-> i thought you have to send an email and such to make a request yesh?01:39
red22prince_jammys: yeah like that it would, except that we wouldn't be clicking on it directly... we'd click on a .lnk file that is associated with our script, but then our script needs to actually launch what is being pointed to...01:39
krimAnyone know how to change font size of .ass subtitles in mplayer? I tried adding ass-force-style=FontSize=1 in /home/user/.mplayer/config but that didn't change anything. Also how can I reset the brightness/contrast/saturation settings?01:39
tanathScunizi, no, that's the "File, Edit, View" etc, in a specific app01:39
nano_sup01:39
Devoamenado: I am sure, but it won't let me use 20 GB now...01:39
tanathnano_, it's the gnome panel01:39

dsoffscan anyone tell me how to use aircrack?01:40
Nissan_350Zamenado> on the ShipIt page you make requests for PC's and 64Bit computers but no Alternative01:40
dsoffs:)01:40
amenadoDevo un-do what you have made and restart the partitioning01:40
Nissan_350Z!Alternative01:40
ubotuThe Alternate CD is a classical text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate checkbox on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal01:40
warcaptai1unfortunately i fiddled around a bit too much with installing stuff for a LAMP server and now i think ive messed it up too much01:40
Devoamenado: Ok, done.01:40
tanathnano_, the actual app is 'gnome-panel'01:40
vrkhansarbir no such file or dir01:40
warcaptai1its not just as easy as removing packages because they dont completely remove stuff01:40
TopRamenhey guys, do remove vnc connections HAVE to be made via an ssh tunnel or can I forward port 5900 and have the remote user connect like that?01:40
vrkhansi am in /home01:40
tanathnano_, the menu bar is the bar with "file, edit, view' etc. in a given app01:40
red22prince_jammys: and in the program just "`$1" would launch the correctly associated program for the file being linked to?01:40
dsoffs:)01:40

dsoffscan anyone tell me how to use aircrack?01:40
spudratic0ok people thanks I have enough of a log to read for tonight you guys are alright later all01:40
nano__tanath: so what is the bar at the bottom01:40

dsoffscan anyone tell me how to use aircrack?01:41
atrusmy laptop's ps2 keyboard and touchpad occasionally stop working completely, usually with a key stuck repeating. i can plug in an external mouse to hit suspend & resume, at which point everything works right again. i'm sort of lost as to what to investigate. any ideas?01:41
emmaDoes anyone have any idea how to fix it for good?01:41
TopRamenastro76: ok, for some reason what I read made it sound like it HAD to be done via an SSH tunnel01:41
red22prince_jammys: i'm sure it's just some specific program to send it to.. whatever that gnome launcher is.. probably nautilus or some component of it.. will look this up, hold on01:41
emmaIf I were to open nautilus with terminal would it output some useful data when it crashes the next time?01:41
TopRamenamenado: so, after enabling the feature (don't have any firewall as far as I can tell) and forwarding the port... it should just work?01:42
clic1QUESTION: how to get to windows share from Linux? I am Linux newbie01:42

TopRamenamenado: do I need to install any specific packages?01:42
vrkhansok arbir i foud mozilla01:42
Nissan_350Zamenado> if you can find anyboot options that will speed it up, like hopefully disable the LiveCD and get on with installing it or run the LiveCD and speed it up so it will run. Thats why i need a boot option to type in01:42
prince_jammysred22: the prog produces a full path, but who executes it?  that you could do one of two ways: hard-code certain file types (eg launch .txt with gedit, launch .doc with openoffice) or figure out how gnome does it01:42
arbirvrkhans: then change dir to firefox01:42
amenadoTopRamen-> install the vncviewer ..what about the other end? what you have there?01:42
tanathdsoffs, google it? check the man page?01:42
vrkhansarbir i am in side firefox/and some dir01:42
arbirvrkhans: you will see a weird looking dir01:42
dsoffstanath, ahah01:42
TopRamenamenado: I'm the host... don't I want vnc-server?01:43
vrkhansok there is lock01:43
vrkhansin there01:43
arbirvrkhans: inside that weird named dir, you will find a file called lock and .parentlock01:43
emmatanath no that doesn't work afterall. It looks like Nautilus automatically disowns the terminal.01:43
dsoffsi found a wireless acesspoing named "keep out" how can i find the WEP key with aircrack?01:43
arbirvrkhans: delete that file01:43
arbirvrkhans: delete both those files01:43
tanathemma, ah, yeah, some apps do that01:43
amenadoNissan_350Z-> I dont know of anyway to speed it up, its dependent on your cdrom, how fast it can read and how much ram you have to dump what it reads01:43

tanathemma, you can check the .xsession-errors file01:43
tanathemma, in ~01:43

arbirvrkhans: now startup your firefox01:45
tanathDr_willis, i am, but i'd really rather not... :/01:45
jimcooncatTopRamen: if you use gnome, you can use System->Preferences->Remote Desktop01:45
LeechzillaDoes mplayer use gstreamer plugins, or something else?01:45
Leechzilla*codecs01:45
tanathDr_willis_, is there a plugin i can disable instead?01:45

Nissan_350ZAnyone know of any boot options to help with the LiveCD? Because it Always freezes. i need to type in a boot option to disable somethings on the liveCD01:46
Dr_willis_tanath,  no idea. theres bugs with java and compiz. Check the compiz site. There may be some tweaks ya can do in the ccsm tool.01:46
tanathemma, did you check your .xsession-errors file?01:46
tanathDr_willis_, hm. ok, thanks for the lead01:47
Dr_willis_tanath,  assuming it is a java/compiz issue01:47
emmaI need to find it..01:47
jimcooncatTopRamen: vncserver is more useful if another user wants to pop into their own account on your computer01:47
amenadoDevo I'd ignore it for now, somehow when you originally partitioned your hd, they were not in the expected boundaries, so it complained01:47
tanathDr_willis_, probably01:47
DocfxitI can't get to a web site. Why?01:47

tanathemma, i found a command that may help. you can try this in a terminal: gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders01:54
jimcooncatTopRamen: I think its 590001:54
prince_jammysred22: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56572/01:54

Nissan_350Z!Alternate01:54
ubotuThe Alternate CD is a classical text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate checkbox on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal01:54

TopRamenjimcooncat: his outbound traffic isn't restricted at all yet he still cannot connect01:54
TopRamenjimcooncat: have no idea why01:54
TopRamenjimcooncat: my port forwarding rules are setup properly too01:54
jimcooncatoutsane, the repositories are where your computer gets it's updates from off the 'net01:55
emmaI got this: bash: /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders: Permission denied01:55
tanathemma, ok, try with sudo then01:55
FourX4Luvnemma: prefix that with 'sudo'01:55
tanathemma, thought you might get that01:55
amenadoTopRamen-> what is his ip address? and how is he attempting to connect to your host?01:56
jimcooncatTopRamen, sorry, I can't figure that out either01:56
emmaI did it with sudo and got the same warning.01:56
tanathemma, if it doesn't seem to work right away, try logging out and back in first. if it still doesn't work, make sure your system is up to date01:56
TopRamenamenado: don't know his ip... he's using JollysFastVNC for Mac OS X01:56
tanathemma, what? that shouldn't be01:56
outsanejimcooncat: okay, but if i installed the .deb file without using a repository, where can i find it now?01:56
amenadoTopRamen-> what is his exact command to connect to you?01:56

capital86is anyone in here familar with beryl?01:58
outsanejimcooncat: i didn't use the terminal, i have a program that installs them for me.01:58
soapI'm not asking about kernel issues - I'm asking about the rest of the system's dependence on one particular kernel.01:58
jimcooncatoutsane: capitalization would be important01:58
red22prince_jammys: yup and so are you, or you dont' think you'd find this useful? don't use windows often enough to find this useful?01:58
emmaI will try logging out and logging back in.01:58
jimcooncatoutsane, no, to start it up after installing01:58
prince_jammysred22: no, not useful to me other than improve my understanding of scripting (and gnome-open)01:59
amenadosoap you can try to run in on vmware or virtualbox and see the effect with no major impact, you can easily remove the virtual disk01:59
jimcooncatoutsane, mine also installed a menu entry under Applications, but I wouldn't know if yours would have01:59
red22prince_jammys: i'll put it all together and try it out in a bit, i gotta go have dinner though.  i'll bbl and let you know (if you're still here) if all's working fine.01:59
capital86is anyone in here familar with beryl? I want to install it but I dont know where to start. I'm a noob01:59
prince_jammysred22: the difficulty in the script (which i solved with the #bash faq) is handling the spaces in files01:59
tanathcapital86, beryl has been deprecated. it's now compiz fusion02:00
capital86okay02:00
prince_jammysred22: ok, gotta get something to eat02:00
red22prince_jammys: well i'm glad we both were able to help each other out and learn something. thanks for the help.02:00
capital86how do I go about that?02:00
usr13soap: The rest of the system does not have dependency on a particular kernel version.  It's just that some kernel modules may be left behind, or need bo be rebuild, but that's not all that likely.02:00

_Oz_Good evening, Ubuntu friends!02:48
amenadomartin_-> umm, blender is not good enuff?02:48
martin_Pelo: Any recommendations for 3D cad apps? Otherwise I may just dualboot so I can use my older copy of autocad.02:49
bdsmattholimeau: ie chmod 755 my_script.sh02:49
martin_amenado: I have been trying to familiarize myself with blender but progress has been... slow...02:49
bdsmattholimeau: sorry, that should be 744 :)02:49
martin_amenado: any recommendations on where I could look for help?02:49
Pelomartin_, dual boot, or you could also try running your windows install in vmware02:49
=== _Oz_ is now known as __Oz__
mattholimeaubds: yeah, that would just force me to run it with sudo though, right?02:49
TetracommHi.02:50
arbirPelo: yeah that link was not downloading the icons....02:50
amenadomartin_-> they have books and tutorials, both as html, and video via wink02:50
Agent_bobnschembr you need to take care of the origenal fs mounting of / before you bind the additional fs's to it.02:50
bdsisn't that what you want?02:50
TetracommI installed a sound card and now want to blacklist the old integrated one. Could someone help me do this?02:50
mattholimeaubds: that's great input, and i'll go with that if i need... but is there a way to easily make a script grab root priv's by itself?02:50
martin_amenado: Thanks I'll take a look.02:50
amenadomartin_-> blendernation.com02:50
Kalamansizhanx: how to edit this  /etc/network/interfaces .. im not good in scripting typos02:50
nschembri've worked with voyage linux ro file system. I would like to try ubuntu on eee with a ro root that I can update with apt-get02:50
zhanxk02:50
Pelomartin_,  you can also try running the full non free version of progecad, it does support 3d but it cost 500$ ,  you can dl the trial version for free , it's 30 days02:51

Nissan_350Zumm how do i install a torrent?02:52
mneptokNissan_350Z: did you install a torrent application?02:52
mattholimeaubds: well, am thinking it should still be able to be secure by prompting for a password before it grabs the privs02:52
amenadoKalamansi-> is your p2 in same subnet ? then copy the configs if possible02:52
Nissan_350Zthats what i need help with02:52
tanathNissan_350Z, you don't install the torrents... you open them with a torrent client, like deluge02:53
mattholimeaubds: in other words, instead of ever seeing a "permission denied" i want to see a password prompt instead. and then only permission denied on an incorrect password02:53
arbirPelo: that downlod link somehow fails02:53
mneptokNissan_350Z: http://utorrent.com02:53
Nissan_350Zok02:53
mneptokNissan_350Z: install that02:53
Nissan_350Zok thanks :D02:53
tanathNissan_350Z, i'd recommend installing deluge. then you can open the torrents you find on sites in that, to download what you're looking for02:53
bds-i  The -i (simulate initial login) option runs the shell specified in the passwd(5) entry of the user that the command is being run as.02:53

Kalamansiamenado: 192.168.1.1 is the router02:55
mattholimeaubds: but an interesting thought nonetheless02:55
Nissan_350Zyou sure Deluge isnt?02:55
tanathNissan_350Z, go with utorrent then02:55
Nissan_350Zok :D02:55
Agent_bobnschembr is it a private message yes.    please don't without invitation.02:55

capital86can anyone help me out with compiz fusion?02:58
Peloarbir,  and it took less then 2 min , if you exclud the time I spent looking for the links02:58
eshaasemneptok: i meant 10MB being alot02:58
Peloarbir,  like what ?02:58
arbirPelo: when i move my curose over the time and date, it disappears02:58
tanathNissan_350Z, right... 'get utorrent' is what you want to do, right? :P02:58
Agent_bobnschembr you can mount it in fstab   and that is the best way    imo02:58
amenadoKalamansi must? does it have that address assigned yet? also what is the route -n  results ?02:58
Nissan_350Zwow thats an awfully small file02:58
eluxthis is friggen annoying02:58
Peloarbir, I don't think that is theme related02:58
eluxi have ubuntu running over a virtualized image02:59
tanath!ask | capital8602:59
ubotucapital86: Please don't ask to ask a question, ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)02:59
eluxwhen i reboot and go into recovery .. i can type in my root password and get in just fine02:59
mneptokeshaase: forget everything Windows taught you about memory management.02:59
capital86okay02:59
eluxbut when im in gnome.. and i open a terminal type sudo -i02:59
capital86sorry02:59
eluxthe root password is always wrong02:59
Creationist!wireless02:59
ubotuWireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs02:59
eluxwhat is going on here02:59
Nissan_350Zi think so, ask mneptok02:59
arbirPelo: this theme is really super...... somehow.... can i make it look like as shown in that page?02:59
Dr_willis_elux,  sudo wants the USERS password. not the root users password02:59
eshaasemneptok: i'm not sure what you mean, i'm not really a big windows user02:59
Agent_bobnschembr there is a pretty good guide on the net,  i don't recall the address  but i think it was on http://linuxquestions.org    maybe.02:59
eluxhow the hell does that make sense?02:59
arbirPelo: the tool tip.. shows beside each window in the taskbar02:59
Dr_willis_elux,  su would want the root users password02:59
Peloarbir, what else is there on the page ? I don't have the link anymore02:59
jamesrdornHey guys, I am installing 7.10 from the live cd on this nforce MB. the installer fails right when it runs grub-install, running this manualy as "sudo grub-install --file-directory=/target /dev/sda gives me "grub-install: the file /target/boot/grub/stage1 not read correctly" any ideas?02:59
jamesrdornSATA02:59
mneptokeshaase: why do you think 10MB is a lot?02:59
Kalamansiamenado : here is route -n and ifconfig -a http://pastebin.com/m603c7cc203:00
amenadoelux what is virtualized image?03:00
eluxwhy would sudo want the USERS password? how is that secure03:00
tanathelux, 'cause you are the user asking for root priveledges03:00
Peloarbir, I don't know that part, sorry , try looking around in gconf-editor03:00
mneptokeshaase: what else is running? what state is the memory in? how much swap is used? how much free RAM do you have?03:00
Shirakawasunadistupgrades are scary, is there a simple-ish way to keep fairly recent apps in ubuntu without a distupgrade?03:00
eshaasemneptok: because 10MB is a lot =)03:00
Dr_willis_elux,  thats how sudo works.. if you dont understand why - read up on sudo03:00
arbirPelo: thanks a ton for this..... this is really super03:00
eluxwell that sucks03:00
Shirakawasunafor instance, let's say I want vlc 9 when it comes out soon03:00
mneptokeshaase: no, it's not03:00
tanathelux, what privs you have are configurable by root with sudoers03:00
Scunizicapital86, sorry.. I had to eat.. did you load up what I was talking about in synaptic?03:00
Dr_willis_elux,  no it dosent.  sudo is designed to do a lot of different things.03:00
Agent_bob!sudo > elux03:00
mneptokeshaase: on a machine with 8GB of memeory and only screen running, 10MB is NOT a lot03:00
amenadoKalamansi back to step 1 for you, no ip address assigned yet to eth003:00
Shirakawasunawill it be easy to upgrade vlc to 0.9 in the repos?03:00
Dr_willis_elux,  you could just give root and the user the same password.03:00
nickrudelux: not every user has sudo privs,03:00
eshaasemneptok: well i guess its a matter of perspective03:00
Nissan_350Zmneptok, now what do i do?03:01

mneptokeshaase: stop. worrying. about. it.03:02
tanathCosmo, in nautilus (file manager), go to Edit > Prefs > Preview tab03:02
=== I is now known as alanhaggai
Cosmothen what?03:02
mneptokeshaase: i can't say this enough. Linux will do a better job managing your free memory than you will. stop worrying.03:02
tanathNissan_350Z, go to ubuntu.com and download the alternate disc. that's what you're trying to do, right?03:02
Nissan_350Zok its opening03:03
Nissan_350Zyep03:03
Cosmo@tanath: i have done all of that and set everything to always but i still dont get thumbnails just blank white files03:03
Agent_bobelux the default setup of sudo is "in my openion" less secure than a good root password,  BUT, if configured properly sudo is a very useful tool, and a box can be tightened far beyond the "normal" security levels...03:03
tanathNissan_350Z, you should be able to choose open at the prompt03:03
Peloarbir, not sure,  some things are part of the theme some are not , I don't think  tooltip positions are part of basic theming03:03
eshaasemneptok: well i meant in terms of settings, like maybe reducing the number of lines stored in the buffer or something03:03
mneptokNissan_350Z: that torrent download can be stopped and started as much as you need03:03
Nissan_350Znow what does this do, mneptok?03:03
tanathCosmo, hrm, not sure. i think it did it by default for me03:03
mneptokNissan_350Z: downloads the alternate CD image03:03
arbirPelo:  the apple icon instead of the Human one.. is not there... and the launch panel is still on the top....03:04
arbirPelo: do i have to manually move these around ?03:04
mneptokarbir: Apple icon = instant lawsuit03:04
tanathNissan_350Z, you burn that as an 'image' to a CD, which you can then install from03:04
Nissan_350Zok03:04
tanathNissan_350Z, an image in this sense is a byte-for-byte copy03:04
arbirmneptok: instant lawsuit if USA, else.. who cares03:04
* mneptok growls at a (still) broken Hardy03:04
Nissan_350Zhow long will it take?03:04
Nissan_350Zdo you think?03:04
tanathNissan_350Z, burning? 5-10 mins03:04
mneptokarbir: i'll bet you'd get sued in Germany and lose03:05
tanathNissan_350Z, your download ETA should say in utorrent03:05
arbirmneptok: how about china ? or vietname ?03:05
Nissan_350Zno, downloading03:05
Cosmo@tanath: i had it too and then i lost it03:05
Nissan_350Zits a 26.4 KBPS internet speed here03:05
arbirPelo: can i get icon zooming like in the OSx ?03:05
tanathCosmo, maybe wrong permissions on your thumnail cache dir?03:05
Cosmo@tanath: you can preview pictures before opening them?03:05
Cosmo@tanath03:05
Peloarbir, you can just drag the pannel to where you want it ,  changing the icon for the menu is something you do in gconf-editor,  in  apps > gnome-panel or panel >  somewhere03:05
Cosmo@tanath:maybe03:05
mneptokarbir: most probably, yes03:05
tanathCosmo, shows the thumbnail...03:06
Agent_bobarbir get all your warez at 127.0.0.103:06
tanathfor an icon03:06
Cosmo@tanath: yes like it is not the same thumbnail for every file correct?03:06
mneptokarbir: but seeing that you're not in China or Vietnam, it's a moot point.03:06
Peloarbir, you do understand that yuou are not in osx right ? you're in linux,  not everyting is available , but it is not impossible that someone made a script to do that , might also be availalbe in compiz as a pluggin03:06
tanathCosmo, well, for me it shows the image instead of that03:06
Nissan_350Zok guys i guess i will go, its downloading, so, maybe it will work :D, thanks so so sooo much for all of your guys' help, its really appreciated03:07

EmmerPshould it be possible to seek in an asf file (streamed), with vlc, totem or mplayer?03:17
mneptokamicrawler: anyhow, you should be discussing this in #ubuntu-offtopic03:17
Creationistzhanx: I don't know the name of his network.  Like I said, Windows just listed local networks... I can't even get that.03:17
amicrawlerany rock on ubuntu03:17
zhanxok03:17
prettyrickyYeah I dont want to connect my Ipod then lose all my data :n(\03:17
tanathCosmo, just a nitpick, but it's synaptic, not synaptics. synaptics is an app for laptops ;)03:17
__Oz__prettyricky: I'd avoid it.03:17
kostkonj_humphrey, try changing it to a different one, the gtk theme I mean, just to see if the panel back will appear ok03:17
amicrawlerwere we know what are bugs are and are not afraid of them03:17
__Oz__I ain't afraid of no gho-- er, bug.03:18
BIOSboilerhi, how do i install php5? with apt-get?03:18
prettyrickyOk, ty03:18
mneptokamicrawler: please, move to #ubuntu-offtopic for such talk. (strike two)03:18
__Oz__prettyricky: yw03:18
Agent_bobrilo sorry i didn't see your first post of "it returns boo".   ok. that rules out it being sudo.   you did    ifconfig      just to see that the eth0 is still up ?03:18
nschembrAgent_bob thank you for your time03:18
tanathemma, that could be it, but i'm not sure what to do about it at the moment. you could try copying some music off it, and playing off the installed hard drive and see if it still does it03:18
Creationistprettyricky: I've been able to use all my different mp3 players without too much trouble.03:18
Cosmo@tanath: yeah i soon realized that...my touch pad is synaptics :P03:18
__Oz__Creationist: INCLUDING an ipod?03:19
amicrawlerthe lirc  does that work right off the bat?03:19
riloAgent_bob: yea... I brought down the two vmware interfaces and that worked fine... eth0 still hanging on strong though03:19
amicrawleri have a mac mini running 7.1003:19
emmaTanath, yeah I think I will move the music to the internal hard drive, and disconnect the external for a while and see if it still happens.03:19
Cosmo@tanath:any other ideas?03:19
Creationist__Oz__: Well, the iPod Shuffle IS still technically an iPod ;)03:19
edwinanyone know of a good gamedev channel?03:19
tanathCosmo, did you check out that thread?03:19
emma(the scientific method for the win)03:19
J-T-Wcan i pm someone 'bout runnin' ubuntu on my lap'?03:19
Creationist__Oz__: I certainly wouldn't even bother with a newer iPod03:19
Agent_bobnschembr welcome,  and sorry i'm lagging so badly right now.     i have about 7 more hours of full bandwidth usage to go.03:19
tanathemma, yeah, if it doesn't, then you've narrowed down the problem. if it does... then i guess you should come back here and find some more help03:20
prettyrickyCreationist----> did you just plug and played your Ipod?03:20
tanathemma, you can also try the ubuntu forums03:20
emmaOkay tanath.03:20
Cosmo@tanath: Yes03:20
mneptokprettyricky: you need to use iTunes to put the iPod into "Disk Mode"03:20
prettyrickyI dont want to plug it and like I said earlier lose all my data........03:20
Creationistprettyricky: If I remember correctly, yes.  The only player I've had trouble with was my Sansa.03:20
__Oz__Creationist: now you're talking.03:20
emmaI've been looking through Ubuntu Forums quite a bit I don't find anything very clearly related.03:20
mneptokprettyricky: and if it was formatted on a Mac, you'll want to reformat it03:20
tanathemma, did you try posting about your problem?03:20
trusatoRiprettyricky: Been using my ipod with ubuntu for a couple of years now, never had any corruption issues and that's been with lots of gtkpod use03:21
Creationistmneptok: Have you tried RockBox?  Not sure how it works with "disk mode" and such, but it's a new firmware for iPods... worked great on my Sansa03:21
prettyrickyOh no dont want to reformat cause then I will wipe everything03:21
emmaNo I haven't posted the problem.03:21
mneptokCreationist: i've used it for months on an e280.03:21
BIOSboilerhi, how do i install php5? with apt-get??03:21
prettyrickywhats gtkpod? sorry newbie03:21
Creationistprettyricky: Well, before you try anything, you should ALWAYS make a backup of whatever data is on your iPod.03:21
tanathemma, well, that's what i meant. you can try that if you still have problems03:21
jrib!lamp > BIOSboiler (read the private message from ubotu)03:21
tanathif not, you might want to file a bug report03:21
willy-brtanath, we're i can find some help in ubuntu?03:21
trusatoRiprettyricky: gtkpod is an app to transfer music to an ipod03:21
prettyrickyCreationist---> that is very true thank you!'03:21
Creationistmneptok: Ah.  I had the e260, I believe (4gb)03:22
prettyrickycan I get that of the apt-get03:22
tanathwilly-br, usually here, or on the ubuntu forums. or by filing a bug report if you have a bug03:22
willy-brtanath, i mean, live help03:22
Cosmo@tanath: if it helps, sometimes when i view pics, then the thumbnails show up03:22
starkedDoes anyone here have any idea how to get Anjuta working?  I can get it to compile my code, but it won't enable the "build" option03:22
tanathwilly-br, well, that would generally be here03:22
Creationistzhanx: No more ideas for me, eh?03:22
emmaI suppose I should try that if need be.03:22
CaptainMurphyHey, I'm haveing a bunch trouble installing ubuntu03:22
amicrawleri have a qestion about sound card03:22
trusatoRiprettyricky: yessir03:22
willy-brtanath, you don't respond your private?03:22
Creationistwilly-br: Most people here won't.03:22
tanathCosmo, ah, yeah i think my system used to do that originally... but some time ago it started doing it automatically for all of them03:23
CaptainMurphyWhich sounds kind of retarded becuase it should be easy right?03:23
tanathwilly-br, you need to be registered to PM03:23
zhanxCreationist: sorry in the bathroo,m03:23
eluxhey guys03:23
Agent_bobrilo check the process table to see what might be running interfearance there ?    i'm like you.  that's a new can of verms,  very interested in what is causing it...03:23
prettyrickytrusatoRi----> Thanks a bunch.. so do I just sudo apt-get gtkpod?03:23
CreationistCaptainMurphy: It's easy for MOST computers... on others it's absolute hell ;)03:23
eluxdoes anyone here run the ubuntu applicance on vmware fusion? i installed vmware tools but i cannot get my network to work.. it works just fine on windows.. ive tried everything03:23
Creationistzhanx: Well, that's not allowed :P03:23
amenadorilo try sudo ip link set eth0 down03:23
trusatoRiprettyricky: exactly03:23
willy-brcreationist, its a total mess to describe my problem here and get the adequate response03:23
zhanxCreationist: by chance you got aircrack-ng installed cause you could use airodump to get the essid03:23
trusatoRiprettyricky: actually, sudo apt-get install gtkpod03:23
prettyrickyoops thanks lol03:24
trusatoRi;]03:24
Creationistzhanx: Not unless it's installed by default.... the lappy has no internet to install anything with ;)03:24
cr4z3dhmm.. i'm trying to launch a script everytime something connects via bluetooth. any one know if this is possible?03:24
amicrawlerwhere do i black list a device ?03:24
CaptainMurphyI'm doing a dual boot ubuntu/xp. I'v already loaded xp, and I want to have ubuntu partion itself 35gigs, with a 4 gig swap and the rest of my harddrive (like 160 gigs) into fat32 so that both xp and ubuntu can get at it.03:24
zhanxCreationist: thinkabout, what is his router and the defualt essid name? linksys?03:24
edwindon't most of the jukebox programs come with ipod integration too? i know amarok, exaile and rhythmbox do03:25
Cosmo@tanath: I'm desperate please help :[03:25
tanathCaptainMurphy, you can use ntfs in linux too03:25
prettyrickywill give it a try!03:25
Creationistzhanx: Well, crap... I don't know any of that.  I suppose I could just boot into Windows and take a look...03:25
trusatoRiCaptainMorgan: Sounds easy enough03:25
tanathCosmo, desperate for thumbnail icons? doesn't seem all that important to me, lol..03:25
starkedDoes anyone here have any idea how to get Anjuta working?  I can get it to compile my code, but it won't enable the "build" option03:25
Creationistzhanx: I seem to remember the network being something like "SoftTouch"03:25
CaptainMurphyhowever every time I try to do that i get this message "the attempt to mouth at file system with type vfat in scsi1 (0,0,0), partition #6 (sda) at /share failed03:25
Agent_bobCreationist no eth card/port ?03:25
zhanxCreationist: really need the essid to connect to a wireless u know03:25
tanathCosmo, alright, lemme check for something03:25
CreationistAgent_bob: Built-in03:25
amenadorilo that did it right?03:26
CaptainMorgansure does trusatoRi03:26
CaptainMurphyI don't understand why it won't format the rest of my harddrive03:26
susseli have installed ubuntu 7.10 in my notebook, but the firefox navegator have a problem, in scream make dark03:26
Creationistzhanx: Well, I can't even get a list of networks....03:26
Agent_bobCreationist crossover cable is handy03:26
trusatoRiThis is during installation of Ubuntu?03:26
edwinCreationist: what kind of card do you have again?03:26
tanathCosmo, run gconf-editor03:26
zhanxCreationist: in windows? then it might be managed by differentt software03:26
amenadoAgent_bob-> that eth0 must me killed, he is not responding.03:27
tanathCosmo, go to 'desktop > gnome > thumbnailers'03:27
Creationistedwin: He has a Broadcom BCM4318 AirForce One 54g03:27
tanathCosmo, make sure you don't have 'disable_all' checked03:27
edwinCreationist: oh god... i'll sit this one out :-\03:27
CaptainMurphyCan anyone help me understand why ubuntu refuses to format the rest of my harddrive in fat32?03:27
[chr0n0s]how can i assign ATL+F5 to some program ?03:27
Creationistedwin: lol yeah, that's what I've read03:27
Cosmo@tanath: Where is that option?03:27
Agent_bobamenado ping him ?03:27
trusatoRiCaptainMorgan: What are you using to format?03:27
islanhello03:27
IdleOneCaptainMurphy, why fat32?03:28
islanI finally have my ubuntu machine working again!03:28
tanathCosmo, click 'thumbnailers' on the left03:28
amenadoAgent_bob-> nah..03:28
CaptainMorgantrusatoRi, please, use the correct handle :)03:28
GunbladeIV[chr0n0s], set it to your system>preferences>keyboard shortcut03:28
CaptainMurphyI'm doing a dual boot03:28
tanathCosmo, it should show on the right03:28
CreationistIdleOne: I don't think he cares to learn how to fish ;)03:28
edwinCaptainMurphy: well, you could always try setting up your partitions manually then run the installer03:28
Frijoliehey all, anyone up for helping me install a new laser printer?03:28
prettyrickytrusatoRi-----> when I plug my Ipod will it show up automatically or where do I go to use it?03:28
trusatoRiCaptainMorgan: hahaha03:28
edwingparted i think03:28
Frijoliedanbhfive: hola!03:28
IdleOneCaptainMurphy, ubuntu works great with NTFS03:28
CaptainMurphy35 gigs is xp, 35 is ubuntu, 4 gig swap, rest fat3203:28
zhanxCreationist: your in luck https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Device/Broadcom_BCM4318_%5BAirForce_One_54g%5D03:28
trusatoRiCaptainMurphy: And what app are you using to format this with?03:28
[chr0n0s]GunbladeIV, i want open firefox with ATL+F5, and firefox is not there in that list03:29
trusatoRiCaptainMurphy: The installer?03:29
purplehi....03:29
CaptainMurphyI'm using the installed03:29
edwinIdleOne: isn't ntfs preferred over fat anyways?03:29
CaptainMurphyon the ubuntu cd03:29
IdleOneedwin, yes03:29
Creationistzhanx: Right, I saw that page too.... however, no internet connection03:29
trusatoRiHe's trying to have a shared part for both xp and linux03:29
islanso I just upgraded to 7.10, and the visual effects have been such a huge improvement, I was wondering if there were more effects that I was not aware of...?03:29
Agent_bobCaptainMurphy ummm mtools installed ?03:29
IdleOneedwin, in windows it is at least03:29
willy-branyone knows why i can't delete some files on my hard drive runnin ubuntu live cd?03:29
tanathtrusatoRi, ntfs-3g03:29
danbhfiveFrijolie: hi03:29
zhanxCreationist: umm grab your lan cable03:29
CaptainMurphymtools?03:29
CreationistHmm... I suppose I could break my connection to this system and move it there.03:29
Creationistlol03:29
Creationistzhanx: Yeah, I figured that too.03:29
edwinIdleOne: i thought that was implied, :-P obviously there are better fs's03:29
BIOSboileri need help please, i have installed postfix, and dovecot imap server, they both work, now i am trying to get squireelmail to work has anyone ever gotten squirrelmail to work in here if so please i just have one question03:30
Agent_bobCaptainMurphy but i have one question for you.   why not let windows format it's own crap ?03:30
trusatoRiCaptainMurphy: You may want to try to partition first using something like the gparted livecd, if you wanna go the fat32 route, or you can format it ntfs and use ntfs-3g, as tanath said, or use ext3 and use the windows driver, either will get what you want done03:30
edwinwhoever was asking about visual effects, you'l have to download cssb from synaptic03:30
Frijoliedanbhfive: you good at getting printers installed?03:30
nemikanyone here got an ATI HD 2400 pro card working with ubuntu and compiz?03:30
zhanxCreationist: your getting paid at least a 12 pack for this right03:30
trusatoRinemik: I have an HD 385003:30
Scuniziedwin, ccsm03:30
prettyrickytrusatoRi-----> when I plug my Ipod will it show up automatically or where do I go to use it?03:30
Creationistzhanx: Actually, this is pro-bono.03:30
Cosmo@tanath: Nope thats fine.  Another thing is like if i have a .pdf or a .txt it shows the same blank icon for both..thats why i am desperate becuase it gets confusing03:30
edwinccsm*03:30
__Oz__nemik: Compiz really dislikes ATI cards.03:31
trusatoRiprettyricky: It should show up on the desktop03:31
edwinoh, Scunizi caught it already, thanks03:31
Frijoliedanbhfive: i can't seem to get my new wireless laser printer intsalled / working properly03:31
nemik__Oz__:i know. that's why i'm asking03:31
tanathCosmo, well you can have a column showing the file type, but i see your problem. i'm still looking03:31
Creationistzhanx: He gave me his Windows notebook to stop the porn from popping up every time he turns it on.  So I fixed that issue and installed Ubuntu on the side ;).  Can't really charge for a service he didn't ask for.03:31
nemiktrusatoRi: is it working with compiz?03:31
CaptainMurphyAgent_bob, I already formated one partion in xp, I'm trying to let ubuntu do the rest of the work becuase this was recomended as the easyest way03:31
BIOSboileri need help please, i have installed postfix, and dovecot imap server, they both work, now i am trying to get squireelmail to work has anyone ever gotten squirrelmail to work in here if so please i just have one question03:31
NW2190Hey, could anyone explain to me, or show me a website that explains, how ubuntu handles USB devices?03:31
[chr0n0s]__Oz__, with new drivers, they seem to be fine03:31
zhanxCreationist:  your evil03:31
Agent_bobCreationist dutch treet eeh...03:31
Creationistzhanx: He's one of those people that delights in shelling out subscription fees to SYmantec and such to stay "protected"03:31
Acoustykquick question03:31
trusatoRinemik: yessir, well enough, used envy for drivers, and that was about all the config it needed03:31
rilosooo... that worked lol. I just kept executing "sudo ifconfig eth0 down; ifconfig eth0" over and over again until it actually went down03:32
NW2190I've been having trouble finding some devices and I think the problem is that I just don't know how USB devices are handled.03:32
dsoffsi found a wireless acesspoing named "keep out" how can i find the WEP key with aircrack?03:32
edwinsymantec = satan..no thanks03:32
Acoustykmy window title bars are red and wont change when I open the appearance manager what do I do?03:32
__Oz__chr0n0s: which new drivers?03:32
amenadoCaptainMorgan-> dont let it use the default "use all" partitions , try to manually pick and choose03:32
Creationistedwin: Yeah... hence the reason I removed it from his Windows install. :P03:32
[chr0n0s]Acoustyk, install emerald03:32
edwinCreationist: lmao03:32
nemiktrusatoRi: cool, thanks. hopefully 2400 pro is not much different03:32
CaptainMurphyI've been doing it in the manual part03:32
Creationistedwin: Upon doing so, though, it notified me that uninstalling may cause him to lose his remaining 303 days of subscription.  What the crap kind of business is that??03:33
tanathCosmo, check /apps/nautilus/preferences > thumbnail_limit03:33
Agent_bobCreationist i like to ask that type "protected from what?"03:33
prettyrickyWhat if it doenst... where can I look for it?03:33
tanathCosmo, in gconf-editor03:33
zhanxCreationist: doing your part to save the world from spam one pc at a time03:33
trusatoRiprettyricky: We can try to figure that out if it happens ;]03:33
CreationistAgent_bob: Well, protected from the porn spyware that he asked me to take care of for him, apparently ;)03:33
Agent_bobrilo nfs shares ?03:33
prettyrickyWell lol it just did????03:33
edwinCreationist: thats crap, what if he just wanted to move the software to a different machine (i mean, i'm sure that loading it on dual machines is forbidden, similar to the windows liscence)?03:34
riloAgent_bob: nope03:34
trusatoRiIs it set to be used as a disk drive using itunes in windows?03:34
prettyrickycheck the packages and it gtkpod was installed03:34
edwinCreationist:  +1 for open source03:34
Creationistedwin: Yeah, I was appalled to read that when uninstalling.03:34
CaptainMurphyIs it possible to go in later and format the free space on my HD after I've installed all this03:34
__Oz__I have that sort of thing, Creationist.03:34
Creationistedwin: But I hit continue anyway ;)03:34
CaptainMurphylike will it mount ...etc... even if I don't tell it a mount point right now?03:34
edwinCreationist: ha03:34
Agent_bobCreationist yes like i said -- i like to ask that type "protected from what?"    after about the third time they start to get the idea.03:34
trusatoRiCaptainMurphy: Sure, but I'd suggest the use of the gparted livecd to do whatever partitioning you want, and then select them manually in the installer03:34
prettyrickydo I need to ctl-alt backspace?03:35
trusatoRi(doing the partitioning first)03:35
CaptainMurphywhats the gparted livecd03:35
trusatoRihttp://gparted-livecd.tuxfamily.org/03:35
CaptainMurphydo I get that offline?03:35
trusatoRiLike a free partition magic03:35
edwintrusatoRi: isn't gparted on the ubuntu livecd anyways?03:35
Cosmo@tanath:It is set to 10.5 million03:35
trusatoRiprettyricky: probably not, but make sure it's set to use as a disk drive on your windows comp, in itunes03:35
zozobrahow can i change the default shell for a user?03:35
CreationistWell, I figured he's the kinda guy that uses his laptop for pictures, surfing, email... the basics.  Why not try giving him a stress free OS?  Of course, this means tons of stress for me.03:35
[chr0n0s]Norton is the most spread virus, you don't need a virus to hog down your pc, norton will do it for you and will make you pay subscription fee to do it too!03:35
chrisb_i'm trying to build ubuntu, and hit a snag, does anyone have any ideas?03:35
prettyrickyoh ok thanks!03:35
pawanhi03:35
zozobrai'm looking to change it to a shell that's non-existent so as to disable ssh access03:35
trusatoRiedwin: yeah, but I've had better luck for some reason with the seperate one, besides the fact it's far less bloated and quicker to boot :P03:36
Agent_bobrilo hmmm   samba ?       i'm trying to think of anything that might possably hi-jack a network interface...03:36
riloCreationist: are you really a creationist or are you just trolling? :)03:36

ogrewhere can I get  ruby-gtk2 and ruby-libglade2 packages?03:39
riloAgent_bob: haha, oh :D03:39
edwinmsn is a horrible protocol to begin with, but thats beside the point. gaim, kopete, and amsn all worked out of the box for me. what kind of problems were you having?03:39
BIOSboileris this room just newbies?03:39
IdleOne!squirelmail03:39
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about squirelmail - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi03:39
chrisb_@Scunizi   thanks, i'll see if i can't find a developer irc chat03:39
Cosmo@tanath:still nothing.  For example my tar.gz files that are set to open with archive manager used to all be litle carton boxes, but now they are just blank white files like everything else, so i have to rely on the extension which is horrible.03:39
pygmymathBIOSboiler: nope... some of us are non newbies helping newbies :)03:39
spikemccpidgin amsn kopete and kmess all don't work03:40
NigelSchrisb_: what are you building?03:40
Scunizichrisb_, maybe  #ubuntu-dev.. not sure if it's correct but it's something like that.03:40
tanathCosmo, yeah, i understand the problem. i'm just not sure if it's a configuration/preference problem, or if something is missing or what03:40
jonesi run an exchange server 2007 at work. when i am at home i do not have any access at all to the exchange server. all i can use is an OWA webmail page. is there a way to use evolution to access this account?03:40
edwinspikemcc: why? i mean, running them from command line, what error do you get?03:40
Creationistspikemcc: Then I suggest you fix whatever you broke on your system....03:40
Agent_bobBIOSboiler mostly tho03:40
NigelSchrisb_: if you had an error building menuconfig most likely you don't have the ncurses dev lib03:40
tanathCosmo, i've been looking through settings, but those haven't worked yet03:40
amicrawlerhey how do i black list a device ? i don;t want it broadcasting any more03:40
Picijones: I've only actually been able to get Evolution to access exchange via OWA, so, yes, it should work fine.03:41

mneptokBeryllium: 2 months to release. you tell me. ;)03:46

Berylliumyikes! :)03:46
MylonWas gonna ask a question, but let me validate the disk first.03:46
Creationistedwin: That's the only "salvation" a person CAN earn, actually... but that's an #off-topic topic ;)03:46
Cosmo@tanath: Yes i do have a .thumbnails directory03:46
bullgard4Agent_bob: klogd is a process too. So klogd needs dd for functioning?03:46
TurtleOfDoomslop: try putting disk one back in and see if that works03:46
tanathCosmo, you can try renaming it. if that works, then just delete it03:46
Berylliummneptok: I'm not normally in here, but it turns out that one of my coworkers at my new job is a regular in here ... :)03:47

MylonIt suggests to try booting using "noapic" option, but I just picked something with the menu.03:49
Creationistmneptok: Right, but I don't know the WEP key or anything OTHER than the network name.  In Windows I don't need anything... just select the network and I'm good to go.03:49

edwinseriously fellas (ladies too) this is one of the few channels i can visit and stay for a few hours even if i'm not getting help with my own issues03:49

Shirakawasunaok, I'm thinking of switching to ubuntu (I'm sure you love answering these questions), and have some questions: 1) How strictly are the packages kept at certain versions?  I was under the impression that if I get ubuntu 7.10, say, I'll be stuck with a certain version (with security patches/minor upgrades) until the next distupgrade.  I like newer packages for some apps.  2) Along these lines, how easy is it to upgrade/downgrade the03:51
Shirakawasunakernel?  My laptop sometimes runs into issues with a new kernel version.03:51
Zarathuparticularly because it takes them a day to approve the form.03:51

tanathCosmo, you can rename it to .thumbnails-bak or something, and see if it works. if that fixes it, then you can just delete the directory and needn't worry any more03:51

ShirakawasunaNigelS: ok, but let's say I want a package like teewars that requires the most recent version to be playable (pretend it's in the universe repo or something).  Does that kind of thing get updated often, or do I need to find another repo like that backports thing?03:54

joecurleesleepster:  i already did via synaptic03:55
NigelSShirakawasuna: I wouldn't expect major updates between releases tbh but this is the case for most distros - you can usually find debs for anything that absolutely isn't in backports03:55
Lionoif i see a technical problem. or some thing i want or i think in some way about ubuntu . where can i say it?03:55
choudeshsleepster, not hard. mirror ubuntu's or your own packages? Any easy way is to create a launchpad account and use a PPA03:55
NigelSShirakawasuna: what sort of background are you from distro wise?03:55
tanathCosmo, did you close nautilus and start it again?03:55
ShirakawasunaNigelS: running release, both gentoo and archlinux.  I'm sick of some things just not working right, like suspend/resume, hibernate, networkmanager...03:56
sleepsterjoecurlee you need your kernel headers too03:56
Zarathu__Oz__: that means I specifically have the key saved onto my computer.  "sudo network-admin" <--- It's saved as the location "School" and the key is saved onto the HDD, which allows it to connect to that SSID without me having to type the key in over and over again.  When I go home, I switch to the "Home" location.03:56

nickrudhermanzone is very nice stuff04:18
ubuntu__Oz__: i no but its for other reasons04:18
__Oz__this is because grub will find and 'respect' the windows install while the windows boot manager will trample all over your ubuntu settings04:18

ubotuEnvoyRising: gutsysources is in System->Admin->Software Sources, enable (main) (universe) (restricted) and (multiverse) and disable the Cdrom on the Ubuntu Software tab. On the Updates tab, enable (gutsy-security) and (gutsy-updates).04:24

Jack_Sparrow__Oz__: dd if=/dev/sda of=mbr.backup bs=512 count=104:25
__Oz__devo: most use gnomebaker and DeVeDe.  However, it will require some tweaking.  Unfortunately, Ubuntu is not very good for burning DVDs, but it can be made to work.04:25
fredsuaI included medibuntu, should I remove it?04:26
__Oz__fredsua: absolutely not!04:26
Cosmo@tanath: Ok here i go..ill be back04:26
__Oz__what will that do, jack_sparrow?04:26
tanath__Oz__, well, i prefer k3b...04:26
lgcnickrud, I've read that Vista is especially restrictive with fumbling with partitions.04:26

tanath__Oz__, pile of junk? k3b is the best04:26
EnvoyRisingah... vintage, yet so beautiful04:27

Berylliumjay-oh-en: Well ... I can chant in latin to help speed it up, but I don't think it will help.04:27
fredsuaThe problem is I can't make my movies work04:27
__Oz__devo: for various reasons, most of which have less to do with linux/ubuntu than with the competition04:27
dogpigeoncowhey i have a program i downloaded called Liquid wars 6 and i have the same problem i have with every program i download wtihout hte add/remove thing. i cant install it. i have the " ./configure      make      make install" command but i dont know how to use them coz nothing happens in terminal04:27
nickrudfredsua: you mean play them?04:27
NigelSBeryllium: worth a shot04:27

dogpigeoncowenvoyrising: which is usually what?04:28
fredsuaok04:28
nickrudfredsua: install that library, and you should be able to play dvd movies04:28
tanath__Oz__, gnomebaker or brasero would be my second choice, but k3b is my first04:28
__Oz__tritium: maybe not "specific", but they are certainly weaknesses many associate with Ubuntu and/or linux.  I realize it's not linux/ubuntu's fault, but it is frustrating.04:28

EnvoyRisingdogpigeoncow: just go to synaptic and disable cd from repos04:31
nickrudfredsua: I prefer to keep it here, in case someone catches something I miss04:31
lgcnickrud, someone told me I can clone a Windows partition to a virtualized one instead of installing it fresh. Was it you?04:31
__Oz__devo: we thrill to chill here at #ubuntu.  You are welcome, and ask questions of us here anytime.04:31
NigelSchicagonpg_: it could on that architecture be accidentally triggering your CPU to shutdown - that would be funny - but have you googled?04:31
BerylliumLes_Caesars: You could use xbindkeys to alias a keycode to the eject command04:31
Osiris2014i mean LinuxSouthAus04:31
NigelSchrisb_: yep04:31
nickrudfredsua: helps if you use my nick in your replies, it's red in my client04:31
EnvoyRisingdogpigeoncow: then sudo apt-get update && sudo-apt get install build-essentials04:31
NigelSchrisb_: this one: libncurses5-dev04:32
Les_CaesarsBeryllium: does eject toggle? If I press it while the tray is out, will it bring it back in?04:32
nickrudlgc: nope. I've heard that as well, but never tried04:32
EnvoyRisingdogpigeoncow: with the cdrom disabled from repolist, it should fetch most recent stable version from internet isntead04:32
fredsuanickrud: okay, when I insert a DVD movie, the drive pops up in the desktop with the movie name, then VLM opens up to play it and I get an error04:32

Overlord_Davidit's a dongle you plug into the USB port.05:02
dogpigeoncownow i need sudo GUile 1.805:03
EnvoyRisingdogpigeoncow: essentially. aptitude just remembers dependencies better so that when you uninstall packages you don't have a whole bunch of extra packages left over. supposedly apt-get does this nowadays, but i'm not sure how well05:03
N6REJOverlord_David: dude it is a card!! what do you think is in that dongle??05:03
Overlord_DavidIt's designed specificly for things like a PSP or Nintendo DS.05:03
EnvoyRisingapt-get is the defacto though, so i'd go with that one since you're more familiar with it05:03

emmaso that's good that Ubuntu is aware of this.05:16
Ownerwhat kind of shell is goin to use on remote machine we we use "rsh"?05:16
prince_jammysemma some general google tips: start with the word "ubuntu" -- paste a chunk of the literal error message (try both within quotes and without) -- if a long error message doesnt work, just a piece that you think is descriptive -- and if that doesnt work, a keyword of what you're doing when the error happens (ie. mounting, playing music) ...05:16
prince_jammysemma yes, thats the page05:16
EnvoyRisingtickbee: yeah, sorry man. you lost me at raid :(05:16
Ububeginerudified: engine.... i am just looking for a visual theme...05:17
prince_jammysemma but it only turned up early with the keyword "flac" included05:17
tickbeeEnvoyRising: ya, the problem is i don't know if it's the raid that screwed it up, or ubuntu05:17
erudifiedYes, GTK has theme engines05:17
erudifiedMurrine uses Cairo for drawing, so it's fast if you have compositing05:17
erudifiedand it looks great, especially with G-Flat SVG icons ;05:17
EnvoyRisingtickbee: you could always try running a livecd and see if its recognized. that would at least let you know that its a config problem and not hardware failure05:17
Ububeginerudfied: hmm, maybe worth a look... tks05:18
carpediemUbubegin: what theme are you looking for?05:18
prince_jammysemma anyway it doesnt seem that the sound preview thing is fully reliable , but maybe it works05:18
Ownerhow can I get shell name - get name of the shell (bash - csh ,etc) thatm I'm using now ?05:18
erudifiedWhat version of the FGLRX driver is currently in Hardy?05:18
prince_jammysemma that definitely qualifies as a bug05:18
Ububeginsomething like satanic edition... where they change everything like sound, artwork and so forth...05:18
macogwOwner: "ps" will show it05:18
erudifiedLast time I tried it, XGL was broken and AIGLX was slow as hell05:19
macogwOwner: without any arguments it just shows whats running in that shell05:19
tickbeeEnvoyRising: it's worth trying, though I'd still be effectively stuck, I have a feeling it's not hardware failure, everything looks fine in fdisk -l, and mdadm is finicky enough that it most likely then not, is part of the problem05:19
prince_jammysemma notice that the bonobo thing appears in the same thread05:19
Owneroh yeah05:19
Ububegincarpediem: something like satanic edition... where they change everything like sound, artwork and so forth...05:19
EnvoyRisingtickbee:  i know you say mounting fails but have you tried a forced mount?05:19
carpediemUbubegin: no such thing, as far as I know.  I could be wrong, but most of the time themes are specific to one part of the overall system05:19
erudifiedcarpediem, check out gnome-look.org - like I said, I use the Murrine engine, MurrineLoveGray, and the G-Flat SVG Icon themes, with Kiba dock05:20

EnvoyRisingprince_jammys: geez, i thought they were deprecating bonobo anyways :-\05:20
erudifiedif your card supports compositing, it's silly nasty omg fast ;)05:20

tickbeeEnvoyRising: it's all really weird, if the partition didn't show up in fdisk -l, i would think something with the hardware is up, but since it shows up fine, and everything looks right, i just don't see what differentiates it from any of my other hard drives which have no problem showing up05:21

prince_jammystickbee how is it identified in fstab?  as /dev/blah   or UUID?05:31
dehspehlEnvoyRising: I believe it's in GTK so you would have to change that manually.05:31
erudifiedI think it's a gnome/nautilus thing, not a gtk thing (could be wrong though)05:31
pjm491anyone using a Nvidia 8800 GTS card with Ubuntu?  How did you get it to work properly???05:32
dehspehlEnvoyRising: I take it you are talking about the GTKFileChooser or whatever05:32
EnvoyRisingdehspehl: ha, like the dev team would even accept that as a patch... "but it's too complicated for users" they'd say05:32
KLinCan anyone tell me why Gimp 2.2 hangs at the search for plug-ins in version 6.06 (Dapper)?05:32

LeechzillaHow can I update my alsa to the latest version without compiling it from source? I can get it from hardy repositories or something?05:32
Jigshello there, how to change the dual boot menu? i wanna make my xp the as the primary and make my ubuntu as my secondary.. and how to change the time delay?05:32
tickbeeprince_jammys: Ok, backstory, it's not mounted directly, it's mounted as part of a /dev/md0 device that uses /dev/hdd1, /dev/hde1, /hdev/hdg1, and that uses /dev/md0 uses a UUID loaded from a mdadm.conf05:33
erudifiedI do prefer it to the windows file dialog simply because of the type-ahead find, but in the file path text box, if you put in a directory and hit enter the dialog doesn't switch to that dir, and that is The Suck05:33
prince_jammystickbee: ah05:33
EnvoyRisingerudified: the pane, the lack of a tree view05:33
tickbeeprince_jammys: all three of those, hdd1, hde1, hdg1 show up fine in fdisk -l, hde1 and hdg1 show up in the /dev folder, but hdd1 does not05:34
erudifiedEnvoyRising, It may actually be gconf-editable, worth looking into05:34
EnvoyRisingjust seems lacking in features compared to kde's05:34
dehspehlEnvoyRising: that's why you have to replace it manually. keeping forks and patches are common in open source, but at least they are possible05:34
AtomicSparkhere is a question i've been wondering, when installing new software and it comes with dependencies, when uninstalling said software, it doesn't remove the dependencies that it installed. is there any way to get rid of anything safely?05:34
tickbeeprince_jammys: so when it goes to mount /dev/md0 at startup, it can't find /dev/hdd1, it only sees the other 205:34
AtomicSpark*everything not anything05:34
erudifiedI used to be a KDE user, but they've kinda jumped the shark with KDE4... I go for more of a minimalist desktop, not lacking in eye candy (I love the cube/scale compiz effects, and they're silly fast) but there's minimal screen real estate wasted05:35
EnvoyRisingdehspehl: i should count my blessings that at least i can change things manually instead of having to wait 3 years for a release that botches it up futher, huh? (**cough, vista** cough)05:35
erudifiedthe new KDE dock/menu just eat wayyy to much screen for my taste05:35
tickbeeprince_jammys: i'm pretty confident "wiping" out the hard drives would fix it so they detect again, but after i setup the raid again, i will most likely be back to square 105:35
erudifiedI'm sure it'll get much better though05:35
erudifiedI like how compositing is more integral to the desktop05:35
dehspehlerudified: no, it won't05:35
EnvoyRisingerudified: i like e17 myself. i cant wait until that gets into a usable state05:35
erudifiedYeah, E17 is philosophically where I want to be05:36
AtomicSparkerudified: i could never use KVM because everything is way too big for me. :P05:36
dehspehlerudified: but someone will make a replacement or we can keep around legacy apps (legacy apps that just so happen to be half of the DE)05:36
prince_jammystickbee: i see. i'm not familiar with that mounting setup.05:36
dehspehlEnvoyRising: personally I don't care much for file chooser05:36
tickbeeprince_jammys: not sure if your familiar with mdadm, but it seems to me, that's there's nothing i can do using mdadm to reassemble it until it can actually SEE the /dev/hdd1 partition, and not being able to see that partition in /dev makes me think something outside of mdadm is affecting it05:36
erudifiedThe KDE guys aren't dumb, they're getting the APIs right05:36
tickbeeprince_jammys: :( well, thanks for trying at least05:37
ganeshhow to get calender settings in thunderbird05:37
erudifiedwhen it's all ironed out they'll start to really pull ahead of GNOME again I think, then GNOME will put out 3.0 ;)05:37
macogwEnvoyRising: its plenty usable05:37
AtomicSparkerudified: what's wrong with gnome?05:37
prince_jammystickbee: yeah i'm sorry.  i'll probably end up learning about that setup by watching what happens with you :)05:37
erudifiedIt's not quite configurable enough for my taste05:37
dehspehlis it just me or are DEs going back to the idea of "lots of space to put xterms in"05:38
erudifiedI don't really like gnome-terminal very much either, or rhythmbox05:38
EnvoyRisingmacogw: not on its own. the file manager is beyond unstable05:38
EnvoyRisingnot to mention way too simplistic05:38
AtomicSparkerudified: didn't know gnome and kde had different terms05:38
erudifiedEnvoyRising, You might like http://rox.sf.net/05:38
prince_jammysuh oh desktop war05:38
tickbeeprince_jammys: lol, everything was working beautifully, until *poof* one time i restarted, and now i have this odd error of a "ghost" partition that's there but not there05:38
erudifiedYeah, I much prefer konsole and juk05:38
EnvoyRisingprince_jammys: hardly. i certaintly don't mean it to be anyways05:39
dehspehlprince_jammys: it's worse than that05:39
erudifiedNah, I mean, I don't really use KDE or GNOME05:39
erudifiedI use gnome-session05:39
prince_jammyslol05:39
t0ny-p40How do I find out what version of ubuntu I'm using?05:39
prince_jammysgo kde05:39
EnvoyRisingprince_jammys: i'm not saying "gnome sucks" or "kde sucks"05:39
dehspehlt0ny-p40: cat /etc/issue05:39
erudifiedNautilus is way too slow for me... I use Rox to manage the root window and Kiba-dock for a task manager/start menu05:39
dehspehlt0ny-p40: i think...05:39
t0ny-p40thanks dehspehl05:39
macogwEnvoyRising: oh. i dont use file managers.05:39
prince_jammysEnvoyRising: i know, just kidding05:39
erudifiedI probably use compiz window grouping more than anyone alive lol05:40
prince_jammysmacogw: console only?05:40
EnvoyRisingmacogw: hard core command line person yeah?05:40
AtomicSparklol console only desktop05:40

AtomicSparkfunny05:40

prince_jammysi use them les and less myself05:40
AtomicSparkerudified: nautilus slow? are you kidding me? do you remember xp/vista?05:41
erudifiedAtomicSpark, try using Rox for a few minutes05:41
erudifiedNautilus is dead slow ;) it blocks when generating previews, etc05:41
mithrowhere can I find information about creating diverts in debs?05:42

CrazyPhil_Hi. Do they exist a program to view powerpoint .pss and .ppt that don't require wine? (I only know PPTView and he require it..)05:42
EnvoyRisingi did go through a "command line only web browsing is the sh**" phase for about a week thioguh, lol05:43
AtomicSparkCrazyPhil_: open office should beable to open them. :\ not sure.05:43
EnvoyRisingCrazyPhil_: open offic or koffice05:43
EnvoyRisingAtomicSpark: your'e right05:43
dehspehlerudified: i haven't found a single non trivial app that doesn't block on images and etc05:43
mithroa google for things like "apt divert" and "dpkg divert" didn't turn up much useful05:43
AtomicSparkerudified: so explain this blocking of previews?05:44
erudifieddehspehl, ones that spawn separate threads and load the previews lazily allow you to do whatever you want while previews are getting generated05:44
CrazyPhil_Open office open them in "editing" mode.. :\ I am looking for a slide show mode.. maybe an open office option?05:44
amenadoCrazyPhil_-> you can put the openoffice into slide mode after05:44
erudifiedNautilus just freezes while it loads however many image previews are in the dir05:44
Jigsis it ok to used firestarter as my firewall?05:44
dehspehlerudified: well perhaps my box just sucks at multithreaded and it's really the time to fork05:44
CrazyPhil_amenado, ok! ty :)05:45
dehspehlerudified: err, the time it takes to fork is what I'm noticing05:45
n2diyHow can I restart/reset a comm port? Every couple of weeks my external modem appears to be busy to Ubuntu. Even when I disconnect  the modem, kppp tells me it is busy, so it seems to be a software issue?05:45
buffdaemonhello shashi sir05:45
AtomicSparkerudified: huh. havent seen this problem. :P maybe i'm not stressing it enough.05:45
erudifieddehspehl, it doesn't matter how long it takes to init the thread or fork or whatever05:45
magickI'm having trouble booting. Specifically, it takes 10 minutes to boot. I tried bootchart, but its before bootcharg loads as bootchart shows only 23s or so. "Starting up..." appears for 10 minutes before it actually boots. If I disable ACPI, it boots up quickly.05:45
chrisb_does anyone know how i can speed up a build  other than make -jn05:45
chrisb_?05:45
ac1dhelp! i need to install 'Dynamips' but... i can only find a .bin and a source file... so how do i compile things from source?05:45
erudifiedAtomicSpark, download 3000+ images, stick them in a directory, browse to it, change a few, upload it, etc, it becomes obvious quickly05:45
erudifiedmanage images with subversion and update, half the directory changes, etc05:46
AtomicSparkhmm. makes sense.05:46
erudifiedit does the same thing with text file previews, it's less noticable though05:46

nickrud!root | P1ro (there is none)05:51
ubotuP1ro (there is none): Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo05:51
TurtleOfDoomP1ro: :there is no root password05:51

liranplong0: nop05:52
plong0liran, that is your problem then05:52
towliesol because its encrypted ?05:52
prince_jammysac1d: did you read the link?05:52
liranplong0: why its empty then? i downloaded the source from apache website05:52
plong0liran, what is inside of that directory?05:52
liranplong0: nothing05:52
TurtleOfDoomtowlie: without the password there is nothing you can do, that's the entire point of encryption05:52
Ububeginprince_jammys: yeah nway i followed this page.... http://happylinuxthoughts.blogspot.com/2007/10/ubuntu-satanic-edition.html.... hmm, wat went wrong... though the visuals look impressive...05:52
fuffalohow do i make a wine application go in full screen?  currently my top and bottom bar are overtop of it05:52
towlieok05:52
nickrudliran: have you looked at the docs in the build directory?05:53
ac1dprince_jammys: yeap, i did, i dont understand im still to much of a linux newb05:53
AtomicSparkman this sucks. i can't get ubuntu to work in kvm now.05:54
prince_jammysac1d what is that package you are trying to install?05:54
plong0liran, you could maybe try downloading the pcre modules from pcre.org (make sure you get the write version!) and extracting them to that directory05:54
erudifiedVista could have been pretty awesome if they'd made WinFS as cool as it sounded and incorporated Interix (basically a Unix kernel running alongside NT)05:54
chrisb_@AtomicSpark   i'm building Ubuntu from source, and I know I can use make -jn, but I'm wondering if there's another way05:54
erudifiedAnd that Monad shell, that sounded kickass too05:54
liranplong0: thanks i will try05:54
plong0liran, if you don't need pcre, you could comment that line out.... or maybe read the docs, there is probably a command line option to disable it05:54
erudifiedInstead they left everything that was remotely interesting out of it and added ribbons to office05:54
erudified./configure --help|grep pcre05:55
* TurtleOfDoom actually likes the ribbons05:55
prince_jammysUbubegin: this theme - is it a login theme?05:55
* AtomicSpark likes the ribbons too05:55
erudifiedhahaha05:55
ac1dprince_jammys: im trying to get Dynamips working05:55
* AtomicSpark some of them... somtimes finding something is hard05:55
nickrudac1d: basically sudo provides user access to things that normally require a root password, on a user or command basis, as configured. In ubuntu, the first user has rights to run everything, with his/her own password05:55
ac1dprince_jammys: I can conly find source tho05:55
erudifiedI didn't make any ribbon value judgements ;) I just feel the other stuff was a bit more... integral05:55
Ububeginprince_jammys: login, gnome, screensaver and etc... all together...05:55
liranhow can i extract tar.gz to the same directory that im on ?05:56
nickrudliran: tar xf <file>05:56
plong0liran, it's always a good idea to read - and understand - the docs when installing...  or else find a tutorial on the web (probably loads for installing apache2)05:56

EnvoyRisingogre, you have to ./configure first. besides that, you should make sure you're in the correct directory06:07
nickrudAtomicSpark: if they aren't used by anything else,  sudo apt-get autoremove should do it06:07
exst_mhuaalanna, that's possible06:07
n2diyogre: try ./make06:07
ogreEnvoyRising:  already did ./configure06:07
prince_jammysac1d: yes, read what nickrud said::: also try typing dyn(and then the tab key to see if it autocompletes)06:07

KiD_ChAoShas anyone got Kontact to work with exchange? evolution can why Kontact?06:17

n2diyKiD_ChAoS: I don't use either of them, try korganizer?06:18
anrkycd*06:18
mkquistorph_: wow thats a load, I'd say at this point it would probably be quicker to just back up ur stuff and install gutsy.  I mean you could probably fix it, but it would probably take longer to sort it out.06:18
nickrudKiD_ChAoS: possibly because no one's written a plugin for kontact?06:18
plong0anrky: I made a usb thumbdrive boot ubuntu.  it was cool.06:18
anrkyatleast till i'm really comfortable with it06:18
anrkya thumbdrive?06:18
orph_mkquist: there's no --ignore-depends-and-reinstall-the-world option to dpkg? :-)06:18
anrkydo you need something special for that?06:19
KiD_ChAoSnickrud, write me a plugin real quick...06:19
plong0anrky: it has been my experience you'll never get really comfortable with it till you "take the plunge" so to speak and load it full time06:19
nickrudKiD_ChAoS: a plugin06:19
MagoonDanyone I know its now hard to do i just need to find out how to mount the drive?06:19
KiD_ChAoSlol06:19
plong0yeah it took a bit of work to get going... there was a tutorial.  I'd suggest just go for the standard CD/DVD edition for now.06:19
anrkyi know what you mean, but i just wanna give it a test drive first, know what i mean?06:19
plong0yeah06:19
EnvoyRisingMagoonD: sudo mount <partition> <mount point>06:20

anrkyyea06:20
MagoonDEnvoyRising, how do I find out the partion and mount point06:20
ogreEnvoyRising:  heres is the output for ./configure http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56587/06:20

anrkyi bet...lol06:21
plong0you might find ubuntu coddles you a bit :P06:21

MagoonDits formatted as fat3206:21
EnvoyRisingMagoonD:  fdisk -l06:21
nickrudMagoonD: well, that leaves out the idea I had about why it didn't automount06:21
anrkyyea i've heard alot of good things about ubuntu06:21
EnvoyRisingas for mount point, thats for you to decide. you may have to make it actually06:21
anrkyreally looking forward to giving it a shot06:21
EnvoyRisingmkdir /mount/<any name you want>06:21
MagoonDok thanks let me try that06:21
sleepwalkhey could ANYONE please tell me the best way to rebuild my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file???  My current video settings are correct, but when I reboot I loose the setup...I also noticed some minor errors in the xorg.conf file.  ANY ideas??? xorg.conf file at: http://pastebin.com/m7f70ba8106:21

nickrudEnvoyRising: /media is the normal place in ubuntu (puts an icon on the desktop)06:22
Owner_how set environment variables permanently in BASH ?06:22
orph_anrky: why not just boot the live cd? it'll let you play with the desktop, run apps and firefox to browse the web, etc06:22
mkquistJigs: did it boot after the update to linux?06:22
erudifiedI think Ubuntu has image problems ;) It should look cooler!06:22
Jigsmkquist: yes sir06:22
chrisb_@sleepwalk  what happens to the setup?06:22
plong0I want my Ubuntu to look like sex06:22
mkquistJigs: if it did, then grub is probably confused about where windows is...06:22
nickrudOwner: add the definition to ~/.bashrc06:22
Jigsmkquist: aw06:22
n2diyOwner: ~/.bashrc?06:22
erudifiedYes, a default ubuntu installation should be capable of getting your average nerd laid06:22
Ownernickrud I wanna do that for all users not just for a specific user how can I do that?06:23
anrkyorph_: what do you mean?06:23
Jigsmkquist: anyway... i formatted it again, i changed it fat3206:23
plong0erudified, anytime I mention linux to girls they seem to get a bit awkward06:23
mkquistJigs: changed what?06:23
EnvoyRisingnickrud: grr.. damned gentoo/other linux habits06:23
chrisb_sleepwalk:    are your settings going back to what they were, or are they just failing?06:23
nickrudOwner: add it to /etc/bash.bashrc06:23
erudifiedpersonal qualities such as dedication, willingness to commit, parenting abilities, etc, should be conveyed by the default Ubuntu theme06:23
Jigsmkquist: i changed it to fat3206:23
orph_anrky: if you download and burn the ubuntu install CD, then boot it, you'll get a fully functional Ubuntu desktop you can play with without installing anything06:23
Owneralright thnk06:23
mkquistJigs: you didnt need to reformat ur windows drive... =\06:23
lynxxalright just installed xbuntu and updated it...but what do i need to play the dvix codec...06:23
EnvoyRisingogre: you need libnet-dev..let me look for the exact name real quick06:24
nickrudEnvoyRising: 99.44% of what you know transfers, it's always the little stuff that trips :)06:24
Jigsmkquist: thats sad i already did...06:24
plong0erudified, I'd prefer if my default Ubuntu theme was a naked lady06:24
orph_anrky: if you like it, you can click the "Install" link on the desktop and it'll run you through the process of getting it on your hard drive
