CyntroxIs there a way to install Ubuntu without the CD? Cause the CD doesn't seem to like me... I have Windows and I have a seperate partition for Ubuntu.00:02
NB2000CD doesn't like you?00:02
Brad01Cyntrox, USb00:02
sudobashwhat happens when you type ifconfig... does it just give you loopback and no eth0 or anything?00:02
chocolatewithminhola: oooops! you have the same cam model i have, and i think the only way is compile de hqca (or similar, i don't know) if you have lucky00:03
AshfireCyntrox, there's a web install though it takes a usb drive or something so you have the web installer00:03
CyntroxYeah, I get a lot of errors when trying to install via the CD... No one here could find a solution to the issue. Would an external USB-hard drive work?00:03
wall2can anyone help with setting up a dlink wireless router in ubuntu?00:03

ignace72salut à tous00:03
ahorriblemessi had to reinstall ubuntu recently.... I'm having soundcard issues. My headphones don't mute the speakers. I followed this http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=575750 (I actually added to that when I had it working before the re-install) but now it doesn't work at all after everything I've done00:03
NB2000Cyntrox What kind of errors?00:03
holachocolatewithmin: how you do it work00:03
swatTXlex, i edited my /etc/network/interfaces and make it "auto eth1" on one line and "iface eth1 inet dhcp" on the second.00:03
mysterycoolhow can I run a directory as super user?00:03
Brad01What is the Default Gateway, It says I need the default gateway address00:03

Xorothalwall2: what wireless card do you have?00:04
sudobashwall2 yes wrong place to ask but here open firefox and type: http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.100:04

wall2i ran the setup for the router, but i can't get a wireless signal00:04
mysterycoolAshfire: not run, but be able to manage the directory as super user :p00:04
lexswatTX: isn't it usualy start at eth0?00:04
Xorothalwall2: you might be out of range. Can you get a signal in windows?00:05
NB2000Cyntrox I might try burning it at the slowest speed possible.00:05
swatTXsudobash, ifconfig shows eth0, eth1, and (just noticed this one) eth1:avah entry00:05
chocolatewithminhola: no, i didn't have lucky :-(00:05
Anjahi, can anyone help me troubleshoot my speakers?00:05
holachocolatewithmin: ok00:05
wall2i'm only 5 feet from the router00:05
swatTXlex. I've tried swapping out eth0 and eth1. no luck on either.00:05
* speeddemon8803 cries.....my ubuntu cd isnt booting anymore00:05
Anjai have no idea why they wouldn't work... :(00:05
Xorothalwall2: ok, what wireless card do you have00:05
sudobashwall2 you need to connect to router over ethernet cable00:05
wall2i can pick up other wirelss signals, but i can't get mine00:05
CyntroxNB2000, I burned it at 40x I believe... Is that too much?00:05
mysterycoolBard01 & Ashfire: Thanks :D00:05
joecurleeok, so i got my firewire drive mounted (thanks to everyone who helped especially usser) but now when I cd to it I can't see any files. system monitor shows it as 100% full (which it's not quite... there are a few hundred MBs left)00:05
lexswatTX this is with a fresh install right?00:05
chocolatewithminhola: I think it's a bit stupid, but have you tried to install the driver on wine?00:06
sudobashswatTX you probably have a 169. something address dontyou00:06
NB2000Cyntrox  I have had older drives that just don't like a quick burned CD.00:06
sudobashon that eth1:avah00:06
speeddemon8803cyntrox, try burning at the lowest possible speed :)00:06
NB2000Cyntrox I say it might be worth a shot.00:06
joecurleethe exact command i ran was: sudo mount -t hfs -o rw,users /dev/sdb /mnt/myfirewire00:06
swatTXlex, other than getting a few codecs through totem i didnt make any changes00:06
holachocolatewithmin: no and you00:06
wall2i have the router connected to my ubuntu box via ethernet cable, but i'm trying to get the wireless signal on a macbook00:06
sudobashyou need to refresh your ethernet adapters swatTX00:06
CyntroxNB2000: I suppose it's worth a shot. I'll try.00:06
sudobashsudo ifconfig eth0 down00:06
sudobashsudo ifconfig eth0 up00:06
Xorothalwall2: try clicking on the network manager in the system tray, connect to other wireless network, put in details and click connect00:06
NB2000Cyntrox Good luck with it.00:06
chocolatewithminhola: yes, i have tried it, but no lucky00:06
sudobashand the same with the eth100:06
wall2(wrong place to ask i know)00:06

ph0rensicforrest, I think you can do it w/o the disk .. I have heard if you play along like you are going to reinstall the OS on the same partition but dont have anything format, grub will install, and fix itself.. thats another method..I actually did it once and it worked00:35
PeloswatTX, try  sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop that should reinstall all the files associated with the desktop part , not sure what you need is in there but it is worth a shot00:35

JorophoseI've helped a friend install Ubuntu as a dual-boot, and everything's working fine, but the windows partition is no longer booting properly. GRUB allows him to boot up into XP, and it goes into the whole "Windows is booting" phase, but then freezes. Any thoughts?00:37
PeloswatTX, I'm sure there is another meta package for the core stuff but I don'T know what it is00:37

ph0rensicFJSS127, Is there any other partitions on the drive or anything?00:38
JorophoseI don't think it's a problem with menu.lst, because he can boot into windows... It's just windows can't reach anything after that first screen.00:38
ZombineIS there a syscall in Linux to pause a terminal... just somethline like "Press any key to continue" or something like that00:38
CorruptTerroristrambo3, i started command prompt with it pointing to the folder with wubi in (C:\Users\Joe Harrison\Desktop>)00:39

FJSS127I want to retry installing it00:39
ph0rensicJorophose, Did you have to resize the windows partition in order to do this00:39
speeddemon8803he means get rid of ubuntu and possibly...yes.00:39

ph0rensicFJSS127, anything else on the disk?00:39

CorruptTerroristfark it?00:41
userwald0The problem I'm having is that when I install Ubuntu 7.10, everything works, but as soon as I run the updater and update to the latest kernel, all my hardware stops working00:41

NB2000Brad01 okay I got it open.00:41
rambo3CorruptTerrorist, yeah it's not working.00:41
CorruptTerroristoh oh ohhhhhhhhhh00:41
userwald0my network card quits, ican't login using gdm, etc00:41
ph0rensicuser__, something wrong with how you are updating your kernel00:41
sudobashbrambo: sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list00:41
ph0rensicuserwald0, ^^00:41
CorruptTerroristcan i download the x32 iso and just put it in the directory?00:41
PeloJordan_U, I know I can do it the long way with avidemux ,  by cutting the extra and then saving the last bit but it would take for ever00:41
NB2000brad you were asking about the ipsetup for a server?00:41
userwald0its like my kernel update doesn't complete00:41
LjLZombine: why would that be a syscall? it seems pretty much a user-level thing. "any key" is tricky, anyway, because of line buffering, but you can easily ask the user to press Enter00:41
sudobashand put in what i pasted above (3 lines)00:42
Brad01NB2000, yeah00:42
speeddemon8803userwaldo, your saying it basically turns your computer into a huge paper weight?00:42
FJSS127I would like to "unpartition" my hdd and then reinstall ubuntu. Is this possible???00:42

NB2000Brad01 well it hopes there are no other DHCP servers on the network.00:42

Brad01NB2000, I can disable the dhcp on my router00:43
speeddemon8803oops :)00:43

bcnlsudobash: got a URL for a pre-made disc? that sounds interesting00:43
PeloFJSS127, well assuming there is nothing you want to keep on this hdd, just boot the live cd and goto  menu > system> admin > gnome partiton editor00:43
NB2000the boot server is the IP of the machine you are accessing.00:43

Cew27hey all how do i start gnome from the command line i just installed it and want to start it i tried exec gnome-session00:45
LjLuserwald0, if the two versions are really different versions, the old kernel is not removed when you update. that means you can just boot using the old kernel, by choosing it in the GRUB menu (and you can make that choice the default by editing /boot/grub/menu.lst)00:45
Brad01NB2000, What do I use for server IP?00:46
swatTXCew27. sudo gdm? or init 2... maybe one of those, not sure.00:46
lexbluefoxx: as long as that folder exists in your home directory, it should work00:46
Brad01my ip?00:46
danandCew27 - /etc/init.d/gdm start00:46
Jordan_UCentaur5, gnome-session should do it if X is running, if not then xinit first then gnome-session ( or use startx and it will do both for you )00:46

bluefoxxlex, ok, so once i save that and make the folder do i have to reboot or not?00:47

iceswordFJSS127, what you mean by messed up00:48
NB2000Brad01 okay.  At the shell prompt type:  ifconfig00:48

sudobashbrambo did you get all that?00:49
bluefoxxlex, also, this drive i added is a external scsi i plan to upgrade soon as i can find a cheap one that is larger, will it be safe to swap them out or should i change the ext3 option to auto?00:49
FJSS127there are horizontal lines running across the screen, orange and black, it happened after i repaired vista00:49
NB2000Brad01 coming from your router its probably going to be some 192.x.x.x number.00:49
j_humphreywhere are the fonts stored?00:49
j_humphreyor how do I install new fonts?00:50
sudobashhaha wow i would vomit on Vista if i could00:50
FJSS127thats why i'm learning ubuntu00:50
lexbluefoxx: generally you don't want to add an external drive to the fstab because if it's not plugged in; problems will ensue when you boot00:50
iceswordj_humphrey, /usr/share/fonts00:50
sudobashyeah no doubt lex00:50
glameixt00:50
userwald0is it possible to only have the updater install the kernel source, and for me to manually manage the compilation?00:50
kostkonj_humphrey, to install new fonts, the easy way is to put the in ~/.fonts00:51
Brad01public ip or just ip?00:51
sudobashthats a good time... your like ummm what happened?00:51
sudobashoh yeah i unplugged that usb00:51
lexbluefoxx: but if you insist; you can just add the other one later when you get it; it'll likely be /dev/sdb1 then00:51
kostkonj_humphrey, or open a nautilus window and go to the fonts:/// location00:51
NB2000Brad01 should be IP Address under the section eth000:51
bluefoxxlex, its externally connected but through an scsi connector, i plan to daisy chain a bunch of 20 gigs into my system with the drives seperatly powered and in a second tower, then use them to backup to00:51
swatTXI really don't want to reinstall just to enable wifi00:51

boyhppydoes anybody know how to install compiz fusion?01:26
MedBookHello, any ISO burning software I use only recognizes my CD-RW as only 600MB, but it is 700MB in size, and when I try to burn the ubuntu ISO, it does not fit on the disc. What can I do?01:26
swatTXPelo, there's nothing really worth saving.. this is a fresh install but I appreciate the advice. I guess i should leave now before i begin to sound biter and prevent anyone from helping.01:26
Peloboyhppy, it is already part of gutsy , just go to menu > system > prefs > appearance,  last tab01:26
ed1tim trying to run tomcat  on port 80 and its giving permission denied for port 8001:26
speartcaleb_yau, ln -s source file /usr/bin01:26
ka2boyhppy: try System > Preferences > Appearance > Desktop effects on gutsy01:26
boyhppyall the parts of it?01:27
speartcaleb_yau, sudo ln -s creates a symbolic link01:27
PeloswatTX,  thwe nice thinkg about linux is you can make your /home folder on a seperate partiton that way fi you need to reisntall you can just overwrite the os and keep the data01:27
ka2boyhppy: think so01:27
PeloswatTX, all your settings will be saved as well01:27
boyhppyok, but how about in 6.06 LTS01:27
swatTXPelo, my settings are what's screwed up i think, lol01:27
speartcaleb_yau, without getting into configuration files and stuff01:27
andrejHow safe is it to update edgy to gutsy?01:28
speartcaleb_yau, being lazy is good :)01:28
Peloboyhppy, that might be a different story, just try asking in #compiz , they probably can point you to a website01:28
ka2boyhppy: install compizconfig-settings-manager for more options01:28
caleb_yauspeart oh so its not actually in the file. Thats awesome i'm having some memory issues so this is a great fix01:28
caleb_yauspeart let me try this01:28
ed1twhy would i get an permission denied in tomcat logs for starting it on port 80?01:28
ka2andrej: i'm not sure but you will have to go through feisty first01:28
PeloswatTX,  I mean the stuff in /home , like applicatiosn settings , wallpaper, general customizing, it won't save your fine os tweaking01:28
Brad01NB2000, You here?01:28
speartandrej, dependes on your configuration01:28
NB2000Brad01 still here01:29
andrejka2: bother01:29
andrejspeart : more specifically?01:29
JoelitoHi all, does anyone know another good web server alternative to apache?01:29
Brad01NB2000, Do you know why01:29
kostkonandrej, indeed, you have to go like this edgy -> feisty -> gutsy01:29
Brad01root@brad-desktop:/tftpboot# invoke-rc.d inetd stop01:29
Brad01invoke-rc.d: unknown initscript, /etc/init.d/inetd not found.01:29
ka2Joelito: nginx, lighttpd01:29
speartandrej, it'll work but you'll need to install 3rd party things01:29
ka2speart: no its in the main repo01:30
PeloJoelito, goto wikipedia,  search for apache , see toward the bottom there are often links to comparison pages01:30
speartandrej, use apt-get only01:30
ka2speart: no its in the main repo01:30
andreji'm getting contradictory messages :}01:30
ka2oops sorry01:30
Joelitoka2, Pelo: thanks :)01:30
andrejspeart: so if I just put gutsy into my sources.list you reckon it will work with an update & dist-upgrade?01:30
=== chaky_ is now known as chaky
ka2andrej: just try it its easy if you have the drivers already01:31
speartandrej, if you think that you'll save time than you should try01:31
andrejtime & band-witdh ;}01:31
speartandrej, worked for me before01:31

ph0rensicoops wrong window01:31
ka2andrej: just time - as far as I know its installed by defualt01:31
andrejka2: I had no driver issues with edgy ...01:31
=== alex__ is now known as bibby
ka2andrej: but only if its not been upgraded to gusy01:32
BrickerOkay, back again :P i finally got terminal to work properly, but when i "kill" gdm, it says ok, and when I run the nvidia driver install, it says i need to kill X...but it said it was killed!01:32
NB2000Brad01 did you invoke-rc.d dnsmasq restart01:32
ka2andrej: neither but it could break things so I was covering myself :)01:33
speartandrej, apart from openoffice I don't think it worth the upgrade01:33
rhineheart_mhello.. what is meant with real memory in ubuntu system information?01:33
andrejIf something breaks ... tough luck; that's what I get for the esae ofuse ;D01:33
Brad01 NB2000, yeah01:33
kostkonandrej, the safe way is: upgrade edgy to feisty and then to gutsy01:33
NB2000Brad01 no errors on that command?01:33
Brad01no01:33
andrejspeart: I want a newer version of postgres ...01:33
Pelorhineheart_m, real RAM as opposed to virtual memory, ie swap on a hdd01:33
caleb_yauspeart, ok here is exactly what i typed $ sudo ln -s /media/sda1/linux/arm-2007q3/bin/ /usr/bin and it worked. Still when i tried running arm-none-eabi-g++ binary, it says the command was not found01:34
andrej8.2.4 is too old, lags 2 minor versions behind01:34
NB2000brad that sed command is buggin me.01:34
andrejsignificant bug fixes in 8.2.6, and 8.3 performs better in most cases01:34
ka2rhineheart_m: non swap memory, actual RAM i think, illjust check01:34
rhineheart_mPelo: is there a module/script for Ubuntu that it would degrag its RAM when it reaches to the set limit?01:34
speartcaleb_yau, I generally link the exec file01:34
Brad01NB2000, Why?01:35
andrejkostkon : thanks for the warning, but I'd rather not d/l everything twice01:35
NB2000Brad01 not sure what it is doing.01:35
Pelorhineheart_m, defraging memory ???? never heard of that , never knew that could be done01:35
speartandrej, fixes of what01:35
m1ke_lthere a video chat client?01:35
andrejspeart : postgreSQL01:35
andrej:}01:35
ka2rhineheart_m: what would be the point, RAM has incredibly fast seek times - or more no seek times01:36
NB2000Brad01 but it wont let you stop inetd or xinetd?01:36
Brad01does anyone know what  sed -e '/USE_INETD=/s/true/false/' -i /etc/default/atftpd does?01:36
rhineheart_mPelo: I mean.. not really defraging the RAM but rather freeing some of the memory to increase the available ones..01:36
speartandrej, install from source then01:36
caleb_yauspeart cool, i can do that, but if there is an easier way for directories that would be awesome because it has 12 executables in it01:36
edicarloshi peoples01:36
Brad01NB2000, I never tried stopping xinetd01:36
mage__rhineheart_m: thats done automatically01:36
PeloBrad01, replaces strings of characters in the aatftpd file I beleive01:36
demonsporkwhenever I try to launch a second gnome-terminal, it fails to launch. I even try to launch multiple gnome-terminals from xterms, but I can only open one, and the next one just exits without returning any errors, it just fails to launch01:36
NB2000Brad01 do you get any errors on the SED command and the subsequent stop commandds?01:36
speartcaleb_yau, you can try *01:36
andrejspeart: how do I tie a newer version of PG into the debian/ubuntu way of building things?01:36
Pelorhineheart_m, just kill some processes01:37
rhineheart_mka2: have you heard about advanced system optimiizer? It defrags the RAM in windows environment..01:37
ka2rhineheart_m: swappiness is built into the kernel which swaps programs that have been idle for a while01:37
kostkonandrej, if you have bandwidth restrictions you can take such a risk. But if you don't have, then better do it the safe way.01:37
speartandrej, 1 second01:37
andrejI'm quite happy with ordinary source installs, but don't want to break dependencies01:37
prince_jammysBrad01: looks like it changes the value of USE_INETD from true to false01:37

NB2000Brad01 it might not be anything to worry about.01:37
rhineheart_mka2: the one that you suggest means real monitoring for the resources available in the box... can you manage yourself doing it?01:37
NB2000Brad01 long as one of them works.01:38

speartandrej, shorter than upgrade01:40
iceswordIndyGunFreak, how much01:40
Brad01NB2000, That doesn't work either :(01:40
speartandrej, more stable process too, if you think server-wise01:40
IndyGunFreakicesword: are you paying for support, or have some specific need for LTS?  because there's been a lot of improvements between dapper and gutsy01:40
IndyGunFreakicesword: depends on what you want it for.01:40

chuckIndyGunFreak: gutsy's install disk won't boot for me, but feisty's does01:50
ka2chuck: gutsy is after feisty yes01:50
Z_o-s-oI thought 7.04 was an great release01:50
IndyGunFreaki guess you can try.01:50

chuckwell what else would i do lol01:51
IndyGunFreakchuck: the alternate install cd?01:51

IndyGunFreakthats what its for.01:51
iceswordudon, what is wrong01:51
Peloudon, type the name of your app in the terminal that will at least tell you if it is installed01:51
NB2000Brad01 looks like what they are looking for.01:51
chuckIndyGunFreak: well there's obviously some bug with gutsy's install disk, and i don't want to have to mess with it01:51
udonjus can't read up01:51
Brad01NB2000, ok01:51
Brad01Here we go01:51
IndyGunFreakchuck: what makes you think that?.. i'ev installed gutsy numerous times on many different pc's, never a problem01:51
NB2000Brad01 boot the laptop and we'll see.01:52
IndyGunFreakchuck: i suspect there's a user bug01:52
chuckIndyGunFreak: ever installed it on an ibook g4?01:52
kostkonchuck, indeed you should first try to install gutsy using the alternate install cd01:52
iceswordudon, wht languauge you speak01:52
udonpelo, but the point is..im totally not into linux01:52
saskuatchman this os is not meant for normal people lol01:52
chuckIndyGunFreak: desktop install works on the feisty cd, doesn't work on gutsy01:52
udonpelo, just start today01:52
kostkonchuck, if that fails also, then go for feisty01:52
IndyGunFreakno, but is it PPC?01:52
chuckyes, i have tried burning it numerous times01:52
chuckIndyGunFreak: yes it is01:52
ka2saskuatch: yeah it is once you haveit working its great01:52
IndyGunFreakchuck: didn't PPC stop after Feisty?..01:52
pawanthanks01:52
chuckIndyGunFreak: it gets to the yaboot menu, and i hit enter, a little text goes by, but after that, it's blank01:52
IndyGunFreakGutsy, its a community project, not a canonical one.01:52

IndyGunFreakchuck: its a community project now, not a official poject of canonical..01:53
chuckZ_o-s-o: i have an ibook g4, i love it alot, you would probably want a macbook or macbook pro now, and yes i would recommend it01:53

IndyGunFreakand you are, but thats another issue01:54

Z_o-s-oWhat do you guys think will be the next move for Gnome now that KDE 4 is pretty much out there?01:55
kostkonZ_o-s-o, nothing01:55
Peloudon, you can start a program from the menu or from the command line,  starting it from the command line deos not mean it will be a command line program , it's jsut a diffrenet way of starting it01:55

udonpelo, i see, it's not showing in the application list01:56
PeloZ_o-s-o, gnome is not in competition with kde no matter what some ppl think , they both have different approaches with suit different ppl01:56

Z_o-s-oKDE is bloated01:56
bluefox83amenado, default policy on what?01:56
Peloudon, open the terminal from the accessories menu ,  type the name of the prog in it , that should start it for you , it will let you at least know if it is installed01:56
amenadobluefox83-> iptables01:57
bluefox83amenado, how do i do that?01:57
IndyGunFreakchuck: have you considered just looking at Debian?.. it has official support for PPC01:57

awli only get two entries: default and ck80402:01
aurumawl: (dont use quotes) and, damn... how are you getting sound from other programs to go to your headphones from your System> Sounds ?02:02

ZirodayI have two screens, my computer screen which is connected via VGA and my TV screen which is connected via DVI. The trouble is that on the tv screen the picture does not fit the screen. Any help?02:02

ASTURIASI think is 7.1002:03
ka2ASTURIAS: in 7.10 you can find it there02:03
aurumawl: google search seems like Ck804 is an internal card02:04
ka2ASTURIAS: but in 7.04 look for Desktop Effects instead02:04
ASTURIASI see Desktop Effects02:04
udonpelo, thank you, i got it02:04
* Pelo is jonesing for an oatmeal and cream cookie02:04
kostkonASTURIAS, then you have 7.0402:04
aurumawl: oddly enough NVidia... I wouldn't set it to that :p02:04
awlaurum: that's what i though, i only get that to display besides default02:04
kostkonASTURIAS, not 7.1002:04
ASTURIASGood to know02:04
Peloudon , you are welcome , and welcome to ubuntu02:04

Jangariyes, luis_, but check first whether you have it by looking in applications > sound and video, or by entering "which serpentine" in a terminal02:18
kazolbastid_raZor: That app is very good, like a full commercial app (Nero, etc.)02:18
copperkidill try the service thing; the man for screen makes no sense to me. thanks02:18
amenadoGreatBear-> dyah visited novel site yet?02:18
CeeBeeYaarhhi folks02:18
Jangariif "which serpentine" returns something like /usr/bin/serpentine then you have it already02:19
speartkazol, search for Hungarian projects02:19
bastid_raZorkazol; i agree. most people don't like having to install kde libraries but that doesn't matter to me. functionality is more important02:19
GreatBearamenado, yeah, we have a linux client in house, but it doesn't work with ubuntu02:19
Housefly7kJangari: what does " which" do02:19
amenadoGreatBear-> for which app you need the client for?02:19

iceswordIndyGunFreak, if i use dvd image,can i just only install the parts i want02:22

NB2000Brad01 probably restart both atftpd and dnsmasq02:22
Housefly7kbut i cant remember how i did it, and now want to know if there is an exisiting shortcut to show desktop, or if i can change it so the "super"+D minimizes all02:22
GreatBearamenado, yes i know02:22
bastid_raZorCeeBeeYaarh; you'll need to find a program that will read ext3 format02:22

kostkonb4l74z4r, the flash breakage exists no more02:23

Jangariokay, so flash is fixed? when did this happen?02:23
iceswordIndyGunFreak, if i use dvd image,can i just only install the parts i want02:23
ka2although i havnt tries fs-driver - i dont have windows to test it with02:23
IndyGunFreakice to an extent yes, but you're stil going to have to install a set of OS packages, Gnome or KDE, or whatever, and the space limitations you're putting on this are to much, you're not gonna get a workable system on 2gigs02:23
kostkonJangari, with two updates before ~10 days02:23
GreatBearamenado, i would prefer to run ubuntu02:24
Brad01NB2000, Here we go02:24
sudobashdid it work brambo?02:24
Jangaripays to remember that http://www.adobe.com/go/getflash is a failsafe way to install flash02:24
NB2000Brad01 cool!02:24
ka2Jangari: almost not for 32 firefox on AMD64 - you have to edit the installer script :)02:24
Jangaridoes anyone know where/if you can download the mac os x system sounds in wav format?02:24
IndyGunFreakicesword: you may tell it not to install openoffice, or something like that, but still, 2gigs is barely enough...02:24
LjLJangari, i suspect that would be piracy02:25
IndyGunFreakand thats having nothing02:25
amenadoGreatBear how about fedora, it uses gnome02:25

Jangariokay ka2, well i should qualify and say 'failsafe if you have a 32bit machine02:25
ka2JJangari: yes02:25
Housefly7kok so i found where it is, its in Keyboard shortcuts in the preferences menu, But it will not let me set "Super L + D" as my show desktop02:25
IndyGunFreakicesword: as i said earlier, you need to be looking at puppy, DSL, maybe vector linux..02:25
sudobashbrambo02:25
iceswordIndyGunFreak, but i like gnome02:26
Housefly7k"hide all windows and focus desktop" is the actual title02:26
IndyGunFreakicesword: well, then you need to give ubuntu more space.02:26
iceswordk02:26
GreatBearamenado, because setting up ubuntu is painless....02:26
GreatBeari would have figured that there would be some kind of Novell client02:26

hattak3b complains about the encoding of some files, and suggests I use convmv02:35

Brad01When I use Konqueror I keep getting a nsplugin error anyone know how to fix it?02:36
amenadoGreatBear-> i did not want you to use liveCD, i said you can customize one,02:36
usserhatta: files in different language often tend to have different encoding so still stands02:36
usserhatta: see if u have funny named files there02:36
ka2ahorriblemess: does your user own the folder02:36
hattayes, I have a file with an ae02:36
ahorriblemesska2: I am the user.. what do you mean?02:37
amenadoGreatBear-> google for remastering ubuntu02:37
usserhatta: rename it02:37
LjLahorriblemess: « sudo chown -R $USER:$USER ~/.Trash/* » - however, installing ALSA manually is far from a great idea, just for the record02:37
ka2ahorriblemess: your user account02:37
GreatBearamenado, i've seen that02:37
hattano, I want to keep the ae02:37

b4l74z4russer, yes, i chose to use the largest continuous free space02:56
ka2Bricke1: but im sure there is plenty i dont know02:56
Shapeshifterka2: k... But it's still irritating me that there's no word of xtightvncviewer in that package or xvncviewer in the vnc4 package. not in the readme, and there's no file like that... I wonder how I was able to just apt-get xvncviewer back then.02:56
LjLahorriblemes1: most likely - i was only suggesting it in case you really considered that bug a show stopper for some reason.02:56
usserb4l74z4r: well thats strange how it partitioned it what can i say02:56
endohey, im running ubuntu with 512MB of ram, is there any memory tweaks I could do to boost performance?02:56
tickyhi. I am reinstalling ubuntu. i have copied all the files under the apt-cache folder, do i need to run any command so when i install i don't have to download them again. i have tried, but it seems it is downloading everything from the server.02:56
TheZealotcan anyone tell me how to use find to find any file with a certain set of letter anywhere in the file's name or expension? I am readon the man page but don't understand which switch to use02:56
ahorriblemessLjL: did you get those last two messageS?02:57
ka2Shapeshifter: odd. but that is the source package xvncviewer was built from02:57
IndyGunFreakendo: you should have moderately good performance as it is.02:57
tickyendo: set something like 2GB for swap memory02:57
LjLTheZealot, perhaps better if you make a practical example02:57
endoticky: how do I go about doing that?02:57
ka2Shapeshifter: as i said you could just try getting tightvnc02:57
b4l74z4russer, i'm gonna give gparted live a try, i can't have this terrible waste of spacce02:57
LjLahorriblemess: "yeah it's a strange problem" and "hardy isn't stable"? yes. i replied: most likely - i was only suggesting it in case you really considered that bug a show stopper for some reason.02:57
tickyend: you already did it when you installed ubuntu02:57
ka2Shapeshifter: or the GNOME terminal services client02:57
Anjaok so are there any boards that ubuntu has trouble being compatable with the sound-card drivers?02:57

Shapeshifterka2: there's no xtightvncviewer on the tightvnc page eighter... that's what is confusing me the most... it's like there's no trace xvncviewer or xtightvncviewer "ever existed"02:59

PeloShkeve,   boot the recovery mode and type sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg,  select the vesa driver and leave the rest on default unless you know better03:54

stefanoShkeve, give the black screen a few minutes, no more than 5. Some times ubuntu doesn't display the loading screen, but a black screen.03:54

iKapPelo, already looked through that.03:55

Shkeveyes03:55
maimsterbb-N-2003:55
PeloShkeve, it reconfigures xorg for the video card,  the vesa driver is jsut the default for cards with no FOSS drivers,it will get you a gui back so youcan deal with the problem03:55
stefanoShkeve, if you see the lights that indicate HDD usage blinking while this black screen is on, it is probably that.03:55
jnascimentodoes anybody here knows upstart??03:55
holycowanyone here run the eeepc ubuntu install script?  just curious if that is a script that plays nice withubuntu packager or whether or not its one of those idiotic automatix types of things that does its own thing?03:55
nickrudShkeve: it does that, there's a bug listed for it. When you do the reconfigure, use the ati driver. It's better than the vesa (sorry Pelo)03:55
ShkeveI'm able to be on the net right now because I pressed the Prt Scrn button, and opened up help from there.03:56
* Pelo will never forgive nickrud for contradicting him 03:56

[BreliC]anyone here know where i can find the API description for the python screenlets module?04:24
[BreliC]the #python channel is not that helpful04:24
ka2[BreliC]: on the screenlets site I think04:24
ka2[BreliC]: i will check04:25
[BreliC]ka2, i looked, but didn't find it anywhere04:25
Shkevedoes anyone else have any ideas on how to recover a desktop that won't load?  I'm using ubuntu 7.1004:25
nickrud[BreliC]: http://www.screenlets.org/index.php/Documentation#Developers ?04:25
ka2http://screenlets.org/index.php/Documentation#Developers04:25
[BreliC]i'd like to know the class descriptions, etc.. i can't even find it on my machine!  weird.. it's not in the python mods directory04:25
Jack_SparrowShkeve: what were you doing the last time it worked04:25
ka2oops a little late04:25
bluefoxxok, so i sucessfully edited /etc/fstab on my other computer to auto mount a pair of extra 6 gig hdds under the home folder's to Documents and Music, and i changed it so user owns them and theres 666 write permissions on them, but i tried draging and dropping a file into one and it says "Error: you do not have permission to write to this folder" so im thinking i need to change it so the user owns the extra hard drives instead of roo04:25
bluefoxxt. how do i change the owner of a hard disk though?04:25
nickrud[BreliC]: sorry, those aren't links, only placeholders I guess04:25
new2ubuntuHi I cannot delete some files on a MMC card. I get an error message "rm: cannot remove `/media/disk/delme//someFile': Read-only file system"04:25
vitamin-carrot*snooze*04:25
[BreliC]nickrud, exactly.. that's what i ran into last time04:26
panfistshould i expect to get awful performance in a game like frets on fire with a geforce 4?04:26
ka2panfist: probably04:26
mage__new2ubuntu: if you cock up a file system on a flash card, might be a good idea to offload it, format it, and throw stuff back on04:26
nickrudbluefoxx: ext3 or ntfs/vfat?04:27
[BreliC]nickrud, ka2 do you guys know where the screenlets module actually resides on the machine?04:27
[BreliC]even a search doesn't bring it up, yet it doesn't cause an error when i import it in a *.py program04:27
n2diyhow do I ring the "bell" on the other end of an SSH connection?04:27
panfistka2 so what graphics card do i need to get smooth performance...right now not even 640x480 is playable04:27
vitamin-carrot*falls asleep*04:27
ka2panfist: i am only guessing04:27
nickrud[BreliC]: I can read only simple python, so I'm not the one to help04:27
new2ubuntumage__: I was thinking of doing that. Is there a way to tell what the file system is so that I can reformat it with the same one? (I use it for a cell phone)04:27
Bossmanbetabluefoxx, sudo chown -R freddie:freddie /nas2 where freddie is your username ... and /nas2 is your mountpoint... then sudo chmod -R 755 /nas204:27

ka2panfist: i assume you have the nvidia drivers04:28
mage__n2diy: uh, do you want to beep thier PC speaker?04:28
n2diymage__: yes04:28
mage__new2ubuntu: type mount, no args04:28
panfistka2 i believe so, restricted drivers are enabled and i get about 1000fps with glxgears, so i assume its working right?04:28
mage__mount | grep /mnt/disk if you love typing04:28
mage__n2diy: maybe try freshmeat?04:29
nickrudmage__: ubuntu does automounting  that under /media04:29
bluefoxxnickrud, the drives are both ext3 formatted with "sudo mkfs.ext3 /dev/hdb && sudo mkfs.ext3 /dev/hdd", as i cant get a new aptoncd disk without a burner and the one i had with gparted on it doesn't have the extra libs needed[the other comp has no net access, i need a router]04:29
bluefoxxoh04:29
ka2panfist: im getting 2600fps04:29
vitamin-carrotoh dear i need a better emerald theme04:29
n2diymage__: freshmeat!? I thought it was ctrl-g?04:29
ka2vitamin-carrot: still using emerald?04:29
new2ubuntumage__:  I got the data vfat,, with a lot of parameters (rw,nosuid,nodev,shortname=.......) will I need to know these parameters to correct format it?04:29
vitamin-carrotyeah04:29
vitamin-carrotwhy is there somehting better?04:30
ShkeveI just installed gutsy about a week ago.  Since then I had been trying to get wmv support, so I was installing and removing different media players, trying to get it to work.  I rebooted the computer today and the desktop won't load.04:30
Shkeveany ideas anyone?04:30
panfistka2 what kind of hardware do you have04:30
mage__n2diy: well try sending a ctrl+g to /dev/console04:30
bluefoxxand i figured out why i can't connect all my computers to the net. my "router" as it was labled is a mere [read:useless] hub/switch04:30
ShkeveI also installed gnutella04:30
ka2vitamin-carrot: with modern compiz you just use metacity themes04:30
mage__new2ubuntu: nope!04:30
nickrudbluefoxx: ok, with the disk mounted, do sudo chown <yourusername> /path/to/mount/point , then you can write there as your usual user04:30
vitamin-carrotmetacity aye?04:30
ka2panfist: Geforce 8400GS, cheap04:30
vitamin-carrotpumpkins of doom aye?04:30
n2diymage__: roger that.04:31
nickrudbluefoxx: yup, switches are not routers, but do have uses04:31
panfistka2 yeah i could use one of those04:31
new2ubuntumage__: sorry one last question, I'm not familiar with vfat,, I thought it would have said fat16,04:31
Jack_SparrowShkeve: wmv is as easy as enabling the restricted drivers, what all did you try to install manually.. can you get to recovery mode and a cli prompt04:31
ka2vitamin-carrot: most people dont use emerald anymore04:31
bluefoxxnickrud, like if i wanted to print to several networked printers at once?04:31
ka2panfist: i used to have a geforce 4 though04:31
nickrudbluefoxx: no, expand your router ports04:31
vitamin-carrotsorry i sill use emerald cause i had it on fedora04:31
ka2panfist: it was ok for planetpenguinracer & compiz04:32
Shkevesorry, but I'm completely new at linux, and I don't understand all the jargon.  But I installed mplayer, vlc, totem, xine, etc. at different times04:32
nickrudpenguinracer rule(d)!04:32
Shkevetrial and error04:32
ShkeveI can't say if that was definitely the cause of the problem either04:32
bluefoxxnickrud, allready done that command, typed in "sudo chown user:user /home/user/Documents && sudo chmod 666 /home/user/Documents" for both documents and music folders, to no avail04:33
ka2nickrud: now there is extremetuxracer04:33
vitamin-carrotawwww now i have to go into sunaptic and remove emerald04:33
new2ubuntuShkeve: I really like vlc,, I've never had a problem04:33
bluefoxxnickrud, ah, that could be usefull04:33
mage__new2ubuntu: for some reason vfat works better than the other choices like msdos, fat1604:33
nickrudka2: gotta check it out.04:33

ubotuDo 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/RootSudo04:41

bluefoxxok, found the problem with the other drives on the other computer. i needed to chmod 774 not chmod 666 them, after a quick couple changes to the command i can now write to them again:) my only concern is i might lose write privliges upon rebooting, as they are internal 6 gig volumes automatically mounted to these points upon bootup by my edited fstab file04:46
rhineheart_mamenado: no.. m accessing the box remotely.. but it logs tells me that it accessed that IP somewhere in UK.. do you think its a threat?04:47

bluefoxxmage__, i edited my /etc/fstab to automatically mount a pair of internal hard drives to the user[thats the acutal account name] /home/user/Documents and /home/user/Music folders, then when i tried to acess them it wouldnt let me read them, much less write to them.. so i used chown user:user /home/user/<either of the folders> then chmod 666 /home/user/<folders> but it didnt let me write, so chmod 774 fixed it. these are internal IDE04:51

[Hardy]TuTUXGZasch, by the way i think u should try gtkpod from medibuntu repo04:53
bluefoxxmage__, my main concern is i'll have to do it all over again upon reboot, so i think i'll make a shell script and remove the user password[comp is used mainly by my grandfather who has a tendancy to not remember passwords]04:53
mage__bluefoxx: it sets the same permissions for files and dirs, which is a tad annoying04:53

moidekaramenado, cfedde, I tried, and Ubuntu doesn't detect the network connection when I plug USB into laptop05:04
nickrudsdsheeks: sudo apt-get clean is the tool05:04
amenadobukk-> you have to do it as root, so sudo and the command above05:04
moidekarI was hoping someone could give me some tips05:05
sdsheeksnickrud: thx05:05

rjunebukk: there are router distros available, IPCop is one, if I remember.05:05
moidekaramenado, I tried modprobing usbserial and cdc-acm and a few other modules, but nothing05:06
hotmonkeyluvQuantz: yeah, you can05:06
mage__hmm05:06
moidekarI wasn't thinking that would work, since Ubu is darn good at doing that detection itself :-)05:06
bukkIPcop: takes a whole HD05:06
amenadobukk then you have to  sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o EXTERNALINTFHERE -j MASQUERADE05:06
mage__Anja: try cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp that should either error or get ugly stuff coming out of speakers05:06
bukkand its hard to wmware it with several NICS05:06
Anjayeah i have no clue, i have read through the troubleshooting sites that were given me, on ubuntu's stuff05:06
donkeyhello05:06
Anjaok brb05:06
moidekaramenado, any ideas how I can figure out what the link is supp to give me?05:06
nickrudhotmonkeyluv: /etc/inittab is depreciated in gutsy, that package shouldn't be trying to work with it. It's a bug. You could probably do sudo touch /etc/inittab , run sudo apt-get -f install to fix that error. You should remove that package immediatley afterwares05:07
rjunebukk: the router should be separate from your servers.05:07
bukkamenado, : Ok, sec05:07
sdsheeksdonkey: hello05:07
amenadomoidekar->  assuming that usb port gives you serial access, then you need to activate ppp on your ubuntu, a config you must do05:07
brambocan someone remember that if sudobash comes back on brambo is looking for him, thanks fellow unbunuter's :)05:07
amenadomoidekar visit the vendor's web site and get a description05:07

moidekaramenado, ok, will check out mfrr's website, but just for the record, PPPoE is alread running on the BB modem... I don;t use it when I use the Ethernet connection05:08
bukkrjune even05:08
nickrudLapointe: hah. You didn't have the gpg trust.db to work with, that's the file not found. I'll remember that05:09
amenadomoidekar you have way too many connections, you have to explain what they are05:09
Anjamage_, how long does it take?05:09
guest_why it always shows that my password is wrong?05:09
hotmonkeyluvnickrud: so, i run sudo touch /etc/inittab, then apt-get -f install. then how do i remove it?05:09
mage__Anja: its usually noticably immediately05:10
amenadoguest_-> you entered it wrong?05:10
mage__an error would be instantanious05:10
nickrudhotmonkeyluv: sudo apt-get remove --purge runit . I only hope that the ubuntu startup didn't get hosed.05:10
guest_no....05:10
Quantzhotmonkeyluv: i can see all my filesystems like ntfs and ext3, however not the fat32 ones. running 7.10 off the DVD05:10

Makuseruare there any PC-based oscilloscopes in kubuntu/ubuntu?05:10
hotmonkeyluvnickrud: and what does the "touch" command do, and what does the -f do? (so I learn it)05:10
guest_tamenado: i use this password for 2 years05:10
nickrudhotmonkeyluv: shouldn't have been, it's a lot different than what runit is modifying05:10
amenadoguest how do you know that you did type in the correct one?05:11
guest_amenado: i use this password for 2 years05:11

amenadoguest_-> but it is not taking it now yesh?05:11
guest_ok...i'm wrong sorry05:11
nickrudhotmonkeyluv:  touch on an existing file changes the access date to the current date and time, creates the file if it doesn't exist. -f means fix05:11
hotmonkeyluvQuantz: hm, live dvd? not sure about that05:11
guest_my layout keyboard default Thai05:11

Joe_Sim not!!05:21
Cpudan80All I want to do is list the packages though?05:21
Joe_Si dont know how to do it05:21
nickrudhotmonkeyluv: aiglx support in the latest ati sucks, xserver-xgl with it is slooowww, and fglrx in ubuntu doesn't support suspend05:21
mage__storm-zen: like synaptic?05:21
amenadomoidekar are you saying in windows both the ethernet port and the usb port work at the same time?05:21
storm-zenThat's probably it, mage__.05:22
ka2storm-zen: Add / Remove Applications & Synaptic05:22
moidekarcaluchard, using the same lappy with Ethernet right now, so won't plug in the USB now, but in general, it says it found a new  high-speed USB device and is selecting config 1 out of 1 possible.05:22
Joe_Swats the difference between linux and windows?05:22
mage__http://www.ubuntugeek.com/clone-your-ubuntu-installation.html <-- who asked a really simple to google question about this?05:22

Joe_Sbr05:22
Joe_S*brb05:22
moidekaramenado, no! :-) If I install the Windows USB conn driver, then Windows can use _either_ the Ethernet or the USB conn, but Ubuntu seems limited to Ethernet :-(05:22
bluefoxxmage__, ok so i edited the fstab on my other computer again and after a breif transfer of it via diskmail[aka floppy disk] here it is for corrections if you care to help, as the edit didn't  work>http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/57156/05:23
bukksorry, how did you use that "anti flood" command05:23
storm-zenI have weirdness going on right now.  I had to use alternative install to access my LVMs from a prior distro, then had to install X-Windows by hand using synaptic, I think... How does one access the "universe / multiverse" with synaptic? ... I have no gnome icons... just a desktop.05:23
bluefoxxmage__, its the last two lines i added05:23
NetEchodoes ubuntu have support for resizing NTFS?05:24
Joe_Sback05:24
NetEchothe installer that is05:24
amenadomoidekar-> what am asking are both ports on the modem, ethernet and usb port are active at same time? so you can plug a windows on one (ethernet and you get access to the net) and also plug on usb port (you also get access to the net ) at same time?05:24
sdsheeksCpudan80: well, do you think that will work for you?05:24
zcat[1]NetEcho: yes05:24
cfeddeNetEcho: you can use gpartd for that.05:24
NetEchosweet05:24
nickrud!gutsysources | storm-zen05:24
ubotustorm-zen: 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).05:24
NetEchocfedde is that on the installer?05:24
caluchardmoidekar, i think your modem not support the use of the two ports simultaneously05:24
zcat[1]NetEcho: yes05:24
Cpudan80mage__: That page doesnt work05:25
* NetEcho is gonna give it a spin on the laptop and see how she runs05:25
Cpudan80sdsheeks: What?05:25
sdsheeksCpudan80: the link i gave you.05:25
ian_Konqueror is driving me up the wall.... i must be blind but can't find a setting anywhere to disable the login remembering info05:25
zcat[1]NetEcho: by default if you have NTFS with windows, the installer will resize it, and it suggests about 50:5005:25
sdsheeksCpudan80: check this out http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu-linux-mint-livecd-with-remastersys05:25
cfeddeNetEcho: make a backup of anything important.05:25
storm-zennickrud: Heard the part about not having any gnome incons or menus and installing x-windows by hand, did you? ;)05:25
sdsheeksCpudan80: I thought it was you looking for a way to mirror a system...could be wrong05:25
cfeddeNetEcho: insurance. not a prediction.05:25
Cpudan80sdsheeks: No, all I need is a list of installed packages to echo to the other machine05:25
lexbluefoxx: using rw under the options didn't suffice?05:25
icanhasadminmkquist: yep, been through all that05:25
moidekaramenado, caluchard: oh, I see... no, when I tried to plug USB into laptop, desktop was off; but good point, they might not both work together so after struggling and getting it working it might be of no use... yikes.. didn't think of that :-(05:25
sdsheeksCpudan80: ah okay :)05:25
Cpudan80sdsheeks: I cannot do your thing because the archs are different05:26
nickrudstorm-zen by installing X by hand, what exactly do you mean? I assumed you used the ubuntu packages05:26
Cpudan80one is 64 bit05:26
mohadib_evening folks05:26
zcat[1]NetEcho: I've never had a resize fail yet, but it's still a good idea to have backups of anything you couldn't easily replace05:26
bluefoxxlex, apparently not, before i had it set to "default"05:26
sdsheeksCpudan80: okay.  I'm a paranoid backup freak so I'm always looking for ways to do what you are wanting to do.  let me know what you find out.05:26
storm-zennickrud: I found something called "ubuntu--desktop" ( I think ) in synaptic ( I think was what I used. )05:26
amenadomoidekar-> however if you do get an extra router box, most likely it will work05:26
storm-zenBut there are no gnome menus or icons...05:26
caluchardmoidekar, don't worry, you always can buy a chep ethernet card to share the connection or a router, maybe with wireless05:27
lexbluefoxx: I have one set as "/dev/sdc1 /home/<user>/music reiserfs rw 0 0" and it works as it should05:27
nickrudstorm-zen: ok, good. That's more than X, and that's the exactly right way to install the desktop. So, what do you mean, no gnome icons?05:27
ka2storm-zen: the ubuntu-desktop package installs gnome, openoffice and stuff05:27

nickrud!resetpanels | storm-zen: run this, tell me what you see afterwards. It should reset all panels to the default: 0ne on top, one on bottom.05:28
ubotustorm-zen: run this, tell me what you see afterwards. It should reset all panels to the default: 0ne on top, one on bottom.: To reset the panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »05:28
storm-zenI have the graphical version of synaptic... I might be able to get this to work..05:28
amenadoCpudan80-> i think so, different arch would use different libraries05:28
lexbluefoxx: so the only difference would be /hdd (which you have) instead of /sdd or the like05:29
bluefoxxlex, also thats the exact copy of the fstab as i edited it, with the new options it didn't mount them but i can mount them manually, with the options set to "default" they did auto mount05:29
NetEchozcat[1] I know its also a good idea to defrag and chkdsk before resizing05:29
riloyou can use ZFS with FUSE I believe05:29
nickrudstorm-zen: synaptic is itself, there's no other version.05:29
ka2there was a fuse ZFS port05:29
lexbluefoxx: so open your mtab and see what it looks like in there05:29
ka2i can confirm that05:29
storm-zennickrud: Ok.  I used some tui to install X-WIndows.  Guess I don't know what it was, then.05:30
zcat[1]NetEcho: so they say; I've never bothered.. but it is really, really critical that you shut windows down cleanly. Linux won't even try to resize a dirty filesystem05:30
SuhailSo I have windows installed on my computer, would editing the partion with windows on it erase it?05:30
amenadobukk i thought you want to share the internet access between your pc's ?05:30
icanhasadminmkquist: I have one strange error. I added "options snd-hda-intel model=auto" and it gave me a line 40 error when i ran modprobe snd_hda_intel05:30
nickrudstorm-zen: apt-get ?05:30
