ArthurArchnixIntegration: Yup. 20GB for install sounds about right, then there is the backups or whatever that Vista makes.00:00

NithPurpZeY: after you restart and you loose the signal, does CTRL+ALT+F1 still work?00:04
IntegrationArthurArchnix, well I was saving it because I don't have an install disk for it and it came preloaded. I was thinking to keep it also for whatever new technology comes out for Vista only.00:04
starshinesoundray: it's just, I'm gonna have somewhat less talented linuxers hanging out in that chroot env, and I don't want them freaking out at me :/00:04
soundrayJaxJagsfan: does it look more like data or more like error messages?00:05

soundraystarshine: makes sense00:20
threeseasandguent: that directory is already empty.00:20

JgonickQuestion for audio.  I have audio, but the volume control is glitchy.  when you click on it once it shows Bass, not the master volume.  Is theis typical and if not any idea on how to fix it?00:21
andguentthreeseas: another option to try is 'cd /' then 'du -sh *'00:21
soundraypisecx: call your program with 'programname &'00:21
Arrickit can access the internet, yes, and also it is indeed running headless (at the moment, kvm is at the house andguent) im at school00:21
pisecxsoundray: let me try00:21
soundraypisecx: if that's not enough, 'nohup programname &'00:22

ubot3vehho: You should avoid changing your nick in a busy channel like #ubuntu - it causes unrequired scrolling which is unfair to new users.  (Please set your preferred nick in your client's settings instead.)  The same goes for using noisy away messages; use the command "/away <reason>" to set your client away silently.  See also «/msg ubotu Guidelines»00:36

PeloMalachi,  I have the same file  leave it alone00:43
PeloChousuke, I have the same file and it is 896 meg00:43

ChousukePelo: it's a symbolic link to /proc/kcore00:44
Nithmy /lib/udev/devices/core is 11 bytes00:44

nixnoobiePelo, upgrade-system is a script that basically runs apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade, deb-orphan, and then clean, the deborphan part is what would get rid of stuff01:16
Nithboohoo: check your ~ on your other box for a file called .vimrc01:16
AlphaGodandguent: if you're curious this is a server box that will be running vmware server01:16
andguentalphagod: I dont think module order will help --  ACK I know what i did, i said fstab didn't i......01:16
Nithboohoo: its hidden(the dot) so do ls -a to check for it01:16
Pelobeener, we don'T have all the answers, we're just users like you01:16
andguentalphagod: i meant /etc/iftab01:16

sYn_0n3question im using a quad core q6600...im on plain vanilla kernel..should i change to smp?01:17
cornfusedcataldus3d: are you talking about the driver01:17
Pelobeener, it push comes to shove,  you can always clean install ubuntu ;-(01:17
cataldus3dabout all01:17
NithWaffles385: When I first installed ubuntu (year and a half or so) I tried it, I don't remember why but I uninstalled it01:17
cataldus3dim tried many things, im lost01:17
andguentalphagod: yea, try man /etc/iftab01:17
NithKumool: np01:17
AlphaGodandguent: ok...give me a sec01:17
nixnoobiecataldus, if youre not afraid of the command line you can use the install documentation from nvidias website, its not that hard01:17
beenerPelo; thats something im realy dreading because i spent more than 15 hours setting it up to run right01:18
boohooNith: ahh, I see what you're saying01:18
NETWizzI got it01:18
boohoocopy that vimrc over to mine?01:18
AlphaGodandguent: no man entry for /etc/iftab or iftab01:18
NETWizzjust install the processor first then install the generic kernel01:18
NithWaffles385: I think it's because I like more than one window and felt restricted by tilda01:18
nixnoobieno problem, NETWizz01:18
zthhow can i make sure OpenGL and my NVIDIA driver is enabled? i will need the commands since im on enlightenment and not gnome irhgt now01:18
Pelobeener, but now you know what you are doing so it will take less time, also , you can put your /home folder on a seperate partiton and use it there, ( select manaual partitionning) , that will save all your data and app settings01:18
Waffles385Alright, I just got done installing it and saw you guys talking about it... just curious01:19
DevourerIs there a way to specify which desktop I would like a program to appear in when I execute it from the terminal?01:19
Kumoolnith what is that?01:19
Nithboohoo: yup, so on your other box "scp .vimrc username@ipOfOtherMachine:~/" and it'll be done01:19
andguentalphagod: or echo "eth0 mac 00:00:00:00:00:00 arp 1" > /etc/iftab (update your appropriate mac and interface of course)01:19
Pelozth, check in your xorg.conf file,   gl should be listed in the module section,   and nvidia or nv as a device01:19
NithKumool: tilda's a package that lets you pull down a console much like in games( e.g. quake).01:19
AlphaGodandguent: do you think that's the best way to do it or is that really just a brute force approach?01:19
inflexokay, now I'm confused...  I can do an 'apt-build info avr-libc',   but when I do an 'apt-build install avr-libc' it complains "Missing source package name for source_by_source().01:20
nixnoobiezth, run glx-gears and look atht fps count, anything <1000 means that your card isnt working01:20
andguentalphagod: i have a man /etc/iftab, but i'm on gutsy for my server, not sure if dapper doesn't have it or what -- not sure if you would consider it brute force, but I have never needed another way01:20
KumoolNith so i just press ESC and itl come up on half the screen??01:20
beenerPelo: thats what ive done from the begging set the /boot on its own partition also01:20
NithKumool: its usually bound to the tilda key but effectively01:20
KumoolNith but wouldnt that be bad i mean what if i wanted to close it?01:20
AlphaGodandguent: this is a new install of 7.10 server so I should be able to follow what you're doing01:20
* Nith shrugs01:20
inflexI also get - Unable to find source information for avr-libc at /usr/bin/apt-build line 48201:20
NithI don't use it, I don't really remember01:21
Pelobeener, not sure waht the purpose of that would but but you seen to understand the technique01:21

andguentalphagod: blah, ok, so i was shelled onto a gutsy workstation and lost track of which box i was on, gutsy desktop has man iftab, i agree that gutsy server does not -- i can't imagine there would be any harm in it01:22
billeniumthanks cornfused01:22
billeniumand nixnoobie01:23
nixnoobiebrandonc503, maybe run one of your screensaver, if its choppy your card isnt working01:23

andguentalphagod: i've never seen iftab not work, but i havin't added it much when it wasn't there, i would say try it, worst that happens is you waited a few minutes for a useless reboot right? :)01:25

mixedI can01:28
nixnoobieor startx01:28
mixedI can't seen minized applications in my taskbar, anyone seen this problem before?01:29
Pelobeener, then just don'T start it ,  like we said before, firestarter is just a frontend,  it doesn't actualy do anyting on it's own,  when yuo turn it on it just sits there and monitors , untill you tell it to do something then all it does is sends modifications to iptables01:29
Orynetcornfusted: ATI graphic card.01:29
nixnoobiehowever, id probably just restart the machine01:29
Orynetcornfused: ATI graphic card.01:29
cataldus3dxgl not present01:29
beenerPelo so if i dont start it everything should be fine01:29
Pelobeener, in other words,  firestarter is just a graphical interface for someting else01:29

beenerPelo: if i set my eth0 to its orignial setting and not a static ip then my eth1 cant connect01:30
Pelobeener, you can try and use firestarter to remove any settings you may have added that should get it going again01:30
AlphaGodandguent: heh....the file is created....apparently I can use ifrename to call iftab and rename the interfaces.....either this will work or the server will be off the network01:30

cataldus3dwhen i tries visual effects doesnt enable01:31
nixnoobiecataldus, sorry man, I got no ideas for you, thats why I stick with my wimpy but compatable intel graphics card01:31
cornfusedApple_Cat: are you talking about rotating the screens through different monitors01:31

Jack_Sparrowcomputer, Make sure you set v/h rates for your monitor not just a base sync rate in that xorg01:53
orudienickrud: sudo apt-get install resolvconf ?01:53
nickrudorudie: yes.01:53
andguentwolvenar: daemons run from init.d are often run as lower privileged users for security reasons, if apache is running as root, and someone cracks your apache, they have root privilages01:53

exegesisFlannel: then what are the four meaningful ones and what do they mean?01:54
cornfused!paste | computer01:54
ubot3computer: pastebin is a service to post multiple-lined 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 channel topic)01:54
zoskycan any1 help me figure out how to add a patch to ALSA ? http://www.xwax.co.uk/scratchamp.html01:54
nickrudorudie: after you set that up, the auto will cause the interface to come up when you boot. you can control it manually with   sudo ifup eth0   sudo ifdown eth0  (or whatever ethX you actually have)01:54
orudienickrud: installed, whats next ?01:54
nickrudorudie: do you know your gateway address?01:54
Jack_Sparrowcomputer, NOT in here.. one sec01:55
Flannelexegesis: Well, sda4 is an extended partition, which means it houses sda5 (And any other higher ones you create).  Why do you think you should only have three?01:55
orudienickrud: yeah01:55
wolvenarunderstandable, however I have a script that I need to have root privs, on a non networked machine, it's works great from bash, but not init or cron01:55
Jack_Sparrowcomputer, sudo apt-get install pastebinit  && cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | pastebinit   in a term01:55
sfearsorudie, /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf01:55
exegesisFlannel: well I was just cruising the forums and some people who dual boot have Windows partition, Ubuntu partition, and a backup partition or something01:55
Flannelexegesis: you have a NTFS, an ext3, another NTFS, then your swap partition.01:55
nickrudorudie: copy that text to /etc/network/interfaces , and set your gateway. What exactly is your gateway?01:55
computerwhats that do Jack?01:55
exegesisFlannel: what do those mean?  NTFS, ext3, swap?01:55
Flannelexegesis: they probably have a swap partition as well.  don't worry, yours looks normal.01:55
orudienickrud: isnt the gateway the ip address of my router ?01:56
cornfusedcomputer: it puts it into a pastebin01:56
nickrudorudie: yes01:56
orudienickrud: like
KumoolNith, what if i wanted to open a console based app?01:56
Flannelexegesis: NTFS is the filesystem for windwos, ext3 is the filesystem (well the default) for Ubuntu, and swap is swapspace for linux01:56
orudienickrud: ok01:56
Jack_Sparrowcomputer, it pastes your xorg into a pastebin and gives you a link to give people that are helping you01:56
exegesisFlannel: ok, that makes me feel a little better.  I can't boot into Vista.  Is there a good how-to online for common problems or something?01:56
andguentwolvenar: visudo -- add a line like this: www-data ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/eject ---- change www-data to your low privilaged username, change /usr/bin/eject to your script path01:56
orudienickrud: should i nano interfaces ?01:57
wolvenarthank you andquent I will try that01:57
lee___I can't play .ogg files on my computer, any idea why?01:57
Flannelexegesis: That'd be a GRUB issue.  Do you have a windows entry in your menu.lst? (/boot/grub/menu.lst) pastebin it.  I'm actually not sure how to dualboot into Vista with GRUB.  Someone else here may be able to help you though.01:57
zoskyJack_Sparrow, pastebinit, thats really cool !!01:57
computerThats how I have it edited.... but it just takes me to terminal basically01:58
orudienickrud: or should i make that executable first ?01:58
cornfusedcomputer: are you sure that's the correct BusID for your card?01:58
nickrudorudie: yes. The only change you should need to make to that stanza I gave is to change the gateway to , every thing else should be fine, unless you have a particular address you want the machine to be, other than xx.xx.xx.20201:58

nickrudwgwinn: reinstall the os01:59
lunkssfears, sorry but it's not clear for me. :D I use make-kpkg to build the kernel. I want to specifically build only b43, my wireless driver. I accidentally checked it off on my .config01:59
cornfusedcomputer: I wouldn't suggest attempting to use a card with no driver02:00
exegesisFlannel: I assume that means I have a Windows entry02:00
computerWell I don't know where to get the driver02:00
netopalisUSB devices are not working in Ubuntu, nor are they working in Windows Vista.  I'm running Wubi, so this may be an explanation of the link.  Any suggestions?02:00
cornfusedcomputer: google the model02:00
computerI have to use this card because I have to dual boot to windows and this card is the only one that works in windows and this is my parents computer02:00
sfearslunks, you could download the driver source files, compile them, & add the module to your /etc/modules file02:00
computerI have googled it and people give the one program for linux that installs drivers for ATI and NVIDIA but thats for the newer cards and this is too old for it :(02:01
Jack_Sparrowcomputer, http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org 59313   from my ati 750002:01
lunkssfears, do you know if there are other ways of enabling modules? /etc/modules didn't work very good last time, but it could be bad luck. If you know another way to ensure module loading, please tell me. :D02:01
computerit's blank02:01
sCOTTonith you here02:01
lunkssfears, ah, and I have the sources, but dunno how to install it02:01

lee___I installed Audacious and XMMS, but I can't see my .ogg files in it, why not? :<02:04
lunkssfears, thank you very much!02:04
sfearslunks.. modprobe is the program that inteligently loads modules02:04
nickrudorudie: resolvconf sets up /etc/resolv.conf for you, so you can use names in firefox instead of ip addresses, has nothing to do with ddclient telling the world your ip address02:04
juank_pradalee___: you need th codecs02:04
bigdad1eis there something i have to do within linux to get my real ip to show up?02:04
lee___juank_prada: I have them ..02:04
warriorforgodnickrud: Ok.  I followed that link you gave me. I issued the sudo /sbin/grub,  then root (hd1,0),  setup(hd1) and then quit.  So now when I reboot it should boot of of hdb which is hd1 in grub correct?02:04
Kumooljuank_prada, audacious comes with em02:04
Jack_Sparrowcomputer, Wrong box...02:04
sfearslunks.. so that would be the way to load any module that isn't compiled directally into the kernel02:04
zoskyJack_Sparrow, wow man you is busy02:04

nickrudorudie: do   <command> & , the & will put it in the background. Then you can type   exit , and the terminal will close and the program keep on running02:16
PurpZeYCan anyone help me analyze a problem...I am only able to boot into Ubuntu intermittently. When I can't, my monitor gets no signal and Ctrl + Alt + f1 does nothing. If I can boot into Ubuntu, it will run for a period of time and then when I try to run an application that requires any computing at all it returns to no monitor signal and ctrl + alt + f1 doesn't work.02:16
adorablepuppynickrud: Who cares about LAMP. . . It's just a stupid acronym. Make a new one. LAPP. Linux, Apache, PostgreSQL, and Python02:16

Nithbigdad1e: the ip address 24.144.x.x has nothing to do with your computer, only your router, you need to find out if you can query your router somehow02:17
nickrudfarruinn: strangely enough, if you type exit it keeps up. I'd been doing disown <process> , but found out it's not necessary. Try with gedit02:17
cornfusedItaku: System -> preferences -> screensaver02:17

brandonc503cornfused right but i want to use dreamweaver02:27
lee___juank_prada: Nope02:27
juank_pradabrandonc503: you will probably need to configure apache in a way that accepts request from your dreamweaver pc02:27
beautifulsnowPirate_Hunter:  consoles? I think CTRL ALT + F1 to F702:27
andguentpriate: as in workspaces? try Ctrl-Alt-Right02:27

nickrudorudie: yw02:28
sacamanoRequinB4, I pseudo-know what I'm doing. I did this once a couple months ago when my resolution got screwed up02:28
brandonc503so when you enter my ip you get to my server02:28
brandonc503but i wana use dreamweaver to edit from other computer02:28
orudienickrud: so if i want to stop this now, how would i stop this job ?02:28
brandonc503i can use ftp but dont know username and pass.....02:28
juank_pradalee___: maybe its a stupid question but.. are you sure you are saving your videos as .OGG?02:29
nickrudorudie:  one way is fg <tab> , and enter02:29
lee___Yeah juank_prada02:29
brandonc503the setting up apache to accept stuff from dreamweaver seems right02:29
Nithbrandonc503: what ftp server are you using?02:29
drakodeahora si lo vistes?02:29
Nithbrandonc503: and alternatively, you can use samba02:29

cornfusedPirate_Hunter: are you using compiz02:31
Kumoolshut it i kno its a bot02:31
juank_pradabrandonc503: is not a matter of just having lamp... you need to configure it to accepts request from your other computer02:31
ionstormGood evening all, I have bootchart installed to log my boots, *BUT* i have no charts in /var/log/bootchart/* anyone know how to fix it, for some reason bootchart isnt loading or logging02:31
RequinB4sacamano - It is entirely possible that X COULD be the problem, i assume you're tried system - prefs - screen resolution? and ensure that that res is applicable for your comp02:31
beautifulsnowPirate_Hunter:  as in diferent computers or as in different virtual desktops?02:31
Flanneljuank_prada, brandonc503, LAMP is configured to accept connections by default02:31
Pirate_Huntercornfused: nope02:31
sacamanoRequinB4,  Correct. Resolution wasn't available, but it's the native resolution both on ubuntu and windows02:32
orudienickrud: how would i go back into that process ? of my command that i executed? cause it has output02:32
Pirate_Hunterbeautifulsnow: hmm i probably should've been more specific i mean those four default workstation in ubuntu, sorry for that02:32
RequinB4sacamano - then yes, boot recovery mode and run sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg02:32
sacamanoand RequinB4, do you advise using Fglrx or the ATI specific driver on Screens and Graphic Settings02:32
juank_pradaFlannel: brandonc503, then whats needed is to configure the routing or set dreamweaver to look for the static ip from the lamp server or domain if any02:33
RequinB4sacamano - whichever works best - not my area of expertise02:33
beautifulsnowOh ok Pirate_Hunter :D Well, CTRL + ALT + RIGHT   and CTRL + ALT +  LEFT shoudl let you switch, also.... you can add the workspace applet to your gnome panel so you can just click the worksapce you want to go to02:33
Pirate_Huntercornfused: yeah read the reply i sent to beautifulsnow - the default workstations that come with ubuntu i.e. on the lower right had-side corner02:33
lee___juank_prada: Can you play this? http://fractal.cluenet.org/~lee/out.ogg02:33
beautifulsnowIf those keys dont work, go to sytem>preferences>keyboard shortcuts and see what the current shortcut to switch desktops is02:34
juank_pradalee___: let me see02:34
Pirate_Hunterbeautifulsnow: thanx you do not know how helpful that was work can progress a little bit faster now :D02:34
Flanneljuank_prada: Dreamweaver talks to servers in the form of FTP.  So you need to setup an FTP server.  Different ends of the webserver.  LAMP does nothing but serve content, Dreamweaver wants to upload to the server, usually done via FTP (although, if DW supports SCP, I'd definately go with that, you should look into it.  It's much easier to configure as well)02:34
nickrudorudie: now you're getting into stuff I never paid attention enough to learn, didn't want to capture output from a backgrounded process.02:34
brandonc503juank_prada but there are several access types FTP local/network webDAV and rds... what one should i use... i only know FTP02:35
beautifulsnowPirate_Hunter: *IF*  you're using Compiz (visual effects)  you'll probably have to run ccsm from command line (console, terminal, whatever you wanna call it :D) and go to General Preferences,  then to the last tab, and set the shortcuts there02:35
orudienickrud: thats very important for me man02:35
juank_pradaFlannel: well ive never used dreamweaver so i assumed it worked with http instead02:35
brandonc503junk_prada but if i use ftp i dont know what user name and pass to use cause its my computer... not some web site account i made02:35
Pirate_Hunterbeautifulsnow: isnt there a way I can use the number to move straight to the workstation i need?02:35
nickrudorudie: then, ask some more. Actually, asking on #bash would probably get you quicker, smarter advice on that issue02:35
Wrathtideafter doing a chmod +x on a file, why is it when i hit enter while selecting the file, it opens up a text editor?02:36
beautifulsnowPirate_Hunter:  mmm.. *ponders*  if you use just a number, it will make it diffuclt to type that number will it not ? :D But say, you could use.... SUPER(windows key) + 1, 2 , 3, 4, hows that sound?02:36
Pirate_Hunterbeautifulsnow: dot use compiz graphics is really crap and I have no need to buy a better one if it allows me to work and watch movies but not use compiz02:36

Nithbrandonc503: I advise stand alone02:48
juank_pradaPirate_Hunter: check Aptana02:48
Pirate_Hunterjuank_prada: will give it a look02:49
smurnjiffLike juank_prada said, aptana is useful02:49
brandonc503Nith thanks was about to ask you that02:49
munk_Jack_Sparrow, well isnt linux the one who does whatever you want it to? is there a way? thats what i am asking and if yes what is it..02:49
Nithbrandonc503: by default, you log in with your lamp's username and password02:49
brandonc503Nith k its done so do i configure anything restart?02:49
Jack_Sparrowmunk_, You could set the cube to rotate by touching the touchpad, but you would not have any control of the mouse for anything else, everytime you use the pad you would just spion the cube02:50
sfearsjacoblyles, you might need your drivers http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_CASupport_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1166859929435&packedargs=sku%3DWUSB11&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=2943529435B01&displaypage=download02:50

sfearsfinish picking the options & download02:50
Nithbrandonc503: if you choose to do that, edit /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf and look for the port line but that'll be after02:50
munk_Jack_Sparrow, how about doing that only with the aid of one of my mouse buttons that are beside the touchpad?02:51
Jack_Sparrowmunk_, yes, linuz can be configured to do about anything.. even something bordering on unsmart02:51
sfearsunsmart.. no such thing02:51
Nithbrandonc503: on your windows box, open up your "my documents" folder then type username@ip into the address bar02:51
Nithbrandonc503: where ip is the ip of your lamp box and username is a user on it. It'll ask you for the password and you'll be online02:51
Jack_Sparrowmunk_, maybe you should /join #Compiz and see some of the options people are using02:51
jacoblylessfears: I'll check it out. I do have ndiswrapper installed and I have the windows drivers02:51
dsmith_anyone here use vmware?02:51
sfearsalright.. then nevermind02:52
dsmith_when I try to open a remote vmdk it throws an error02:52
munk_Jack_Sparrow, haha yes so ive heard... i tried asking but no one is responding:02:52
jacoblylessfears: still no wireless option under network connection02:52
Nithbrandonc503: last step would be to symlink /var/www to your home directory for easy access02:52
YoomooI've used ubuntu in vmware02:52
Alfarindsmith> what error? please pastebin it02:52
JohnuahFannel: are you there02:52
Yoomooalso I've used it in virtualbox02:52
Pirate_Hunterjuank_prada: it looks good but i guess its extensively big as a app goes but i havent checked that yet02:52
dsmith_i have a vmdk on my nas and cannot open it02:52
FlannelNith, brandonc503, don't symlink it.  You already have the userdir module available.02:52
sfearshave you loaded the ndiswrapper module.. "sudo modprobe ndiswrapper"02:52
mlLKcan someone help me. i have 6 instances of apache2 running02:52
Yoomoocan you open up other ones?02:52
JohnuahI need a mail server package. whick has included the web , mail parts02:52
NithFlannel: expand plz02:52
Flannelbrandonc503: make a folder in your homedir named public_html and put stuff there (make it readable by www-data)02:52
dsmith_Yoomoo: only on local02:52
AlfarinmlLK, kill them?02:52
dsmith_YooI am trying via network02:53
FlannelmlLK: thats normal02:53
Johnuahand easy to be installed?02:53
mlLKAlfarin: well ya02:53
mlLKFlannel: that is?02:53
FlannelmlLK: yes02:53
Yoomooand it works fine locally?02:53
jacoblylessfears: what's supposed to happen when I type that? It pauses for a second and brings me back to the prompt02:53
dsmith_Yoomoo: yes02:53
NithFlannel: is that default with apache?02:53
geniimlLK: Apache keeps a bunch of servrs running02:53
FlannelNith: is what?02:53
sfearsthat activated the drivers loaded in ndiswrapper02:53
AlfarinFlannel> you sure?  I thought its php that's suppose to have multiple instances running due to fast-cgi02:53
sfearscheck your network connections02:53
Yoomoohave you checked to see if your vmwammrme server is configured correctly?02:53
NithFlannel: userdir module02:53
mlLKgenii: ya, thats the word on the street02:54
cornfusedjacoblyles: have you tried ndiswrapper02:54
threefcatai'm running configure of extreme tux racer, but it says no gl library could be found, what should i do?02:54
sfearswe're working on that right now cornfused02:54
dsmith_Check that a line for uid 98 appears in /etc/passwd.02:54
dsmith_it runs fine02:54
FlannelNith: it is.  Check /etc/apache2/mods-enabled and you'll see userdir.conf and userdir.load02:54
brandonc503Flannel why make that folder why not use the ones i have in /var/www?02:54
mlLKso does gusty default to ip6?02:54
Yoomooso it's only the ubuntu vmdk which is mmessed up?02:54
JohnuahI need a intergrated Mail Server, which has included Web part and Mail Part..02:54
Pirate_Hunterjuank_prada: i just noticed something in the video clip isnt that for windows? im using ubuntu not going to be helpful02:54
Flannelbrandonc503: Because you can put stuff in that folder as your own user, without having to deal with permission issues inside of www-data02:55
dsmith_Yoomoo: no any vmdk that I move over to my NAs refuses to start and gives me "Check that a line for uid 98 appears in /etc/passwd."02:55
Flannelbrandonc503: er, /var/www not www-data02:55
dsmith_I tried edting /etc/passwd, but nothing is working for me02:55
Nithbrandonc503: Flannel's right about the possible permissions errors, you'll have to "sudo a2enmod userdir" to get it to work02:55
jacoblylessfears: still no wireless option under network connections02:55
jacoblylessfears: should I reboot?02:55
munk_anybody here knows a good app for a calculator?02:56
jacoblylessfears: don't know if this helps02:56
geniibrandonc503: You put things in public_html dir in your home. Then the webserver can get to it by a url like http://somewhere/~yourname02:56
jacoblylessfears: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/59324/02:56
FlannelNith: its not enabled by default?  What version of ubuntu are you using?02:56
NithFlannel: gutsy02:56
sfearslooks like it should be working jacoblyles02:56
NithI did not install a lamp originally though02:56
FlannelNith: interesting.  On dapper its enabled by default02:56
sfearscheck your system/admin/network & see if it's listed in there with an IP address02:57

Ndiswrapper says the same thing for me, but i could never connect. Myc ard lets me see wireless networks but cant connect. My advice for you is to go to Ndiswrapper website. and somewhere i think in the Q/A's or somewhere, it will tell you specifics for your card. For my card it told me i can only see net05:09

xb3rtmurlidhar: what are you doing, i just installed the good, bad, and ugly earlier06:10
xb3rtI have the same thing06:10
sexy__Black_Magic: yeah its amazing, thats the beauty of this distro, things install fast and easy i love it.  this updates like nothing, its so light and easy on ur pc unlike vista or windows thats just eats up your system.. this actually is the REAL WAY of updating an OS were it makes ur system feel faster unlike vista etc06:11
murlidharxb3rt, sorry i couldn't make a thing out of your comment.06:11
Black_Magicsexy__, Mmhmm ;)06:11

Black_MagicGuess no one knows06:11
sexy__Black_Magic: cant wait for hardy heron06:12
Flannelmurlidhar: That package doesn't exist in Gutsy, or any other version it seems.  What are you looking for?06:12
Black_Magicsexy__, its gunna be out in a couple weeks you can upgrade now.06:12
xb3rtI just did a sudo apt-get install bitchx       and it installed, but now its nowhere to be found06:12
Flannelsexy__, Black_Magic, Hardy is currently ALPHA software.  Being alpha, it is changing in stability from day to day.  Its strongly recommended you don't update unless you know you want to.06:13
sexy__Black_Magic: i can update now? but will it update to the official release when the offical release comes out?06:13
JavidEvery time I apt-get install anything, it tries to reinstall vmware-server and then errors out on me. How do I knock vmware-server out of the install queue so it doesn't keep doing that?06:13
Spiritualplease, how can I add a printer in ubuntu (in network) where it is connected at a windows 2000 professional?06:13
sexy__Flannel: i see thats true thanks for the tip06:13
Black_Magicsexy__, just keep up with the updates after you upgrade now if you keep up with updates you will have the official release06:13
Flannelxb3rt: BitchX or bitchx will start it.06:13
xb3rtFlannel: ok, ty06:14
sexy__Black_Magic: awesome its worth a try, plus if i mess up its so easy to get back to where i left my distro as06:14

Parsec300Guys, if you have installed 8.04 Alpha 5 and do all the updates when it is released, you would have the same as the final, right?06:18
prince_jammysxb3rt yes06:18
murlidhar_Parsec300, yes06:19
Parsec300murlidhar, thx06:19
Flannelxb3rt: it is.06:19
Flannelmurlidhar_: That package doesn't exist in Gutsy, or any other version it seems.  What are you looking for?06:19

murlidhar_Flannel, i am looking to activate equalizer in exaile media player'06:20

rhineheart_mwhere to download driver for atheros 5007eg wireless?06:24
ByronHi, how do i uninstall a video card driver? (one i installed from the nvidia website)06:24
Flannelmurlidhar_: That's probably the best place to go.  It's certianly not an Ubuntu package, its not in debian, and it's not in medibuntu either.06:25
xb3rtWhats the best way to run WoW on linux06:26
Flannelxb3rt: wine.  It works really well: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft06:27
xb3rtFlannel: the crappy thing is i bought it from a direct download06:27
Flannelxb3rt: I have no idea what that means.  Wine is still the best method though.  You might be able to get additional wine support (to resolve whatever direct download issues you have) in #winehq06:28
LogicalDashI've got an ATI card and fglrx installed, but i keep getting errors to the effect that there's no direct rendering device. What does that mean?06:28
xb3rtFlannel: it just means that i dont actually have the game, I paid to download the install file, but that should still work in wine06:29
Flannelxb3rt: that's correct.06:29
xb3rtFlannel: i just changed my user login name, and now my sudo password doesnt work.....how do i go about fixing that06:31

murlidhar_Flannel, got it. it is in the repos but the version is 0.10 .06:33
Flannelmurlidhar_: Whats the package name?06:33
murlidhar_Flannel, found that in synaptic.06:33
murlidhar_Flannel, gstreamer 0.10-plugins-bad06:34
murlidhar_Flannel, just search gstreamer bad in synaptic u would get the result.06:34
Flannelmurlidhar_: The version is 0.10.5, just like it asks for.06:35

morgananyone know how to get e-sword modules on 7.1006:47
Lap_Topi use to use windows xp and that had ftp server named bulletproff ftpserver06:47
FlannelLap_Top: If you're just using this for personal use, you might enjoy SCP over FTP.  It takes away all need for any configuration, and is also secure, not transferring in plaintext06:48
FlannelThat is, SCP as an alternative to FTP.  not "SCP over FTP"06:48
Lap_TopFlannel: can we talk private06:49
arquebusubuntu wont install anything for me because it say (for everything that I try to install) that it is not compatable with my hardware. But I just have a run of the mill x86 rig. What could be wrong? Im not able to get updates either06:49

arquebusmurlidhar- I dont think there is any reason for me to use a special install cd, my computer is pretty normal06:55
vsftpdcrshman, so what mean remove06:56
crshmanit's in a sata array06:56
crshmani mean physically remove the drive06:56
crshmanand tell the kernel it's gone06:56
[dcr]ER, if its unmounted, just take it out I believe crshman06:56
[dcr]Should be good.06:56
vsftpdhmm,after you umounted it06:56
arquebusIm using the pidgin messenger client right now and I want to switch to msn messenger, but I dont see any thing in the menus to do that. Anyone know?06:57
crshmanok well the system didn't crash.....but one thing i do notice....06:57
cwillucrshman, you mean to tell the machine to power the bus down for a hot swap?06:57
crshmanwell i'm not going to be swapping it....i'm just removing it06:57
crshmanbut i suppose06:57
Waffles385arquebus, you dont really switch... you run both at once06:58
[dcr]arquebus: I use "emesene" for My MSN messaging needs. Its got alot of nice features and almost a grand port of Windows Live Messenger to Linux :306:58
ganaufs is not supporting the livecd of kernel 2206:58
arquebusok thx Waffles, but I dont even see anything for me to choose msn messenger with, where do I select that?06:58
Waffles385arquebus, Ive heard emesene is alot nicer than pidgin but I don't use MSN at all... but to add an account go up to Accounts, Manage06:58
crshmanwhen the system queries all the disks or does a search for them (say the partition/disk list in webmin) it takes MUCH longer than it did when the drive was in there06:58
JavidI use amsn06:58
crshmanwhich leads me to believe it's hanging up on the missing drive06:58
cwillucrshman, hdparm has some related options, sdparm (not installed by default) may be useful06:59

Javidit's got a windows port too, I just punted the official client entirely06:59
[dcr]I tried aMSN but i find it no where near as good as emesene in my opinion >.>06:59
Waffles385arquebus, then click Add and there is a drop down box with MSN in it06:59
[dcr]But hey, thats just me xD06:59
crshmanah ok thanks cwillu06:59
cwillucrshman, if something was still using the block device, it could break something06:59
JavidI'll have to try emesene then06:59
cwillu(i.e., the /dev/sd*, as opposed to the mount point)06:59
[dcr]You should :3 Also check out its plugins, theres so many and their all really good :306:59
crshmanhow do i find out if something is?06:59
arquebusdcr- Im unable to install anything on ubuntu right now because it says everything I try to install is uncomptable with my hardware (if you can help with that problem also Id appreciate it)06:59

Waffles385thew00, I don't really have too much experience, but if you think it's a problem with iptables try sudo iptables -L to see what rules you have07:12
Waffles385if you want use pastebin and we can look at it maybe someone could help07:12

Begasusloged in as user07:38
mactimesBegasus: I recommend you to take a look at security risks before doing so, but su won't work until you enable root account.07:38
mactimesBegasus: You can use sudo to run administrative tasks and tasks with administrative rights.07:38
bazhangand Begasus logging into root on IRC is madness, frankly07:38

mactimesbazhang: I guess once he's been advised that it can be dangerous, there is no reason for keeping information secret...  This is free/open source, right?07:42
bazhangmactimes not about secret; about giving poor advice07:42
Begasusbeen using linux longer then today so I know that using su isn't a good idea if not needed07:42
mactimesbazhang: Ok, check this out07:43
wainii do not want to reinstall07:43
wainii want to removeit07:43
bazhangwaini reinstall the package not ubuntu07:43
mactimesBegasus: Ok, enabling root account or doing sudo su IS one of the most risky (I mean DEADLY RISKY) things you can do, unless you know VERY VERY well what you're doing.07:44
Begasustrying to set user rights to a mounted volume07:44
mactimesBegasus: Once that has been said, at your own risk, what you asked is:  1st enable root account: sudo passwd root07:45
mactimesBegasus: Go ahead and su. Enjoy it moderately :)07:45
BegasusI apreciate your comments mactimes ... and one can't be told enough to use it with good sense ;)07:46
mactimesBegasus: I would also recommend you DISABLING root account once you're done, like this: sudo passwd root -l07:46

jscinozwell trying to at least, its sitting on mentors waiting for a sponser :P08:18
lancerockebazhang: wait.... i saw xfce-session for a second then it went away08:18
jscinoztaks, if its a graphical program use gksu instead08:19
jscinoztaks, sudo is if you are running a terminal program08:19
taks@jscinoz,, ok gksu , I will try this,08:19
jscinoztaks, you shouldnt need to type your password that often, it remembers it for 15mins (or less, not sure)08:20
lancerockebazhang: im trying to follow this tutorial http://icculus.org/openbox/index.php/Help:XFCE/Openbox and when i type killall xfwm4 it says danny@danny-desktop:~$ killall xfwm408:20
lancerockexfwm4: no process killed08:20
taks@jscinoz, so it means that , once I use sudo command i can work for default timeout of the password08:21
slackerHi everyone08:21
jscinoztaks, the reason you have to use sudo/gksu to run something as root means that something can't royally bork your system (to the point it fails to boot) without you specifically giving it root. If you ran your session as root it'd be like windows where you are administrator by default (and thus why viruses propgate so easily and do so much damage)08:21
lancerockeCan anyone help me?08:21
jscinoztaks, yes, you still need sudo before each command, but it shouldnt ask for password again if its only a short time after the last sudo use08:21
jscinoztaks, the same applies for gksu08:21
glickhmm everyone in ubuntu+1 seems asleep08:22

ArthurArchnixreplace xfwm4 with compiz09:20
sou1 Hello, I just reformatted using a new version of guty's cd; however i can not get my compiz preferences updated... i dont have the preferences options under apperance.. what do i need to do?09:20
lancerockeArthurArchnix: so i cant run compiz with openbox?09:20
ArthurArchnixcompiz is a window manager. openbox is a window manager.09:20
bullgard4sCOTTo: Look it up in Synaptic.09:20
heym1can I use gtkrc to use different iconsets for certain application? e.g. evolution use tango and thunar use mac iconset. will include work?09:21
RelaedArthurArchnix, it didn't work.09:21
ArthurArchnixRelaed: Bummer. You remember that bug report lnk you pasted09:21
sCOTTobullgard4: do i do a REINSTALL or uninstall and then reinstall ?09:21
RelaedArthurArchnix, yes09:21
ArthurArchnixRelaed: If you scroll down you'll see what options other people have tried. Try those as well. Even though they didn't work for them, they might work for you. This is where knowing what command restarts alsa is useful, since without that command restarts are required after each change to alsa-base09:22
heym1any ideas?09:22
lancerockeArthurArchnix: ok i did killall compiz ; openbox & exit and now - http://pastebin.com/m48206aa009:22
RelaedArthurArchnix, thanks for helping me, and it's time for dinner now. Have a nice day.09:23
lancerockemmmiiikkkeee: ok i did killall compiz ; openbox & exit and now - http://pastebin.com/m48206aa009:23
ArthurArchnixlancerocke: Well, I don't see compiz, but I don't see openbox either. You desktop must look messed up.09:23
RelaedArthurArchnix, I'll keep on looking for the solution.09:24
lancerockeArthurArchnix: my desktop looks normal09:24
bullgard4sCOTTo: i.) Look up 'network-manager' in Synaptic. ii.) Highlight it. iii.) Click on it. iv.) Choose: "Fully remove" After you fully removed it: v.) Install network-manager.09:24
life2atreusi fixed my sound prob!!!!09:24
ArthurArchnixIs there a border around your irc client?09:24
lancerockeArthurArchnix: might emerald be my window manager?09:25
ArthurArchnixlancerocke: Dunno, anyway know the instructions say "Now you must log out and log back in. When you go to log out, make sure you check the box that says "Save session for future login" or something like that. When you log back in, XFCE will use Openbox."09:25
mmmiiikkkeeelancerocke: if you kill 'X' it shoudl kill what ever window manager you are running also..: "kill -9 26150", but i think killing gdm should also work; do you want to kill just the window manager or all of 'X'09:26
ArthurArchnixmmmiiikkkeee: This is what he's doing http://icculus.org/openbox/index.php/Help:XFCE/Openbox09:26

ArthurArchnixlancerocke: Why are you still here? You did step one of the instructions and it seemed to work. Now do step two. Log out, save session for future login. Log back in. We'll still be here09:28
lancerockeArthurArchnix: ok brb09:28
heym1dual iconsets? howto?09:28
mmmiiikkkeeelancerocke: what was wrong with "killall compiz ; openbox & "09:28
heym1I'm waiting and asking my q every 10 minutes it seems...09:29
heym1: /09:29
ArthurArchnixSupaFly: Look for debian docs on the subject. They're probably better and 99% of them will be applicable to Ubuntu. You'll just have to adapt them with sudo instead of su and stuff. Also look up bastille09:29

sCOTTobullgard4: ?09:58
bullgard4sCOTTo: Ah, yes I see. (But I did not understand your topology fully.) Did you install Samba on your laptop?09:59
sCOTTobullgard4: no... was i meant to - i thought it would have been standard.... i played with it a bit... and couldnt get it working.... so i killed it - then talked to you and then i uninstalled what you told me to10:00
bullgard4sCOTTo: You have got 3 computers in a LAN. One is 'faithtop'. One is 'kristop'. What is the name of the third?10:00
Linux_Freshertecht0nix:  here it goes --->  http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/GNUtoon%2BUbuntoon?content=70206    at the bottom, i downloaded the second file .. not the gnu one, the ubuntoon one i got10:00
venomewalla: and what about http://myip/10:00
mmmiiikkkeeeLinux_Fresher: from the readme file it says you can just copy the Ubuntoon dir to the ~/.icons directory10:00
sCOTTobullgard4: the other is 'SERVER'10:00
sCOTToand it is a server 2003 install10:00
venomewalla: or respectively http://localhost10:00
ArthurArchnixunbelieve: Logs can't be generated that quick, plus a default ubuntu install has something called logrotate that prevents logs from growing beyond a certain size. It's more likely something is being copied onto your system.10:00

zod_is it any mediacenter for Ubuntu 7.10?10:02
mmmiiikkkeeeLinux_Fresher: the icon foldre is hidden; all folder starting with a '.' are hidden.  i think "control h" will show you the hidden folders10:02
Linux_Fresherquakky:  did it work ?10:02
quakkyLinux_Fresher: nope...10:03
quakkyLinux_Fresher: I tried a command which redid and redetected everything10:03
quakkyLinux_Fresher: however that didnt seem to work..10:03
Linux_Freshermmmiiikkkeee:  yes, but please .. rather than moving stuff without understanding, i am trying to figure out the basic gui methods in linux .. so i really want to try it the second way10:03
quakkyLinux_Fresher: i cant believe it only took me an hour to mess up linux10:04
pcormacksureshot then just type :wq!10:04
Linux_Fresherquakky:  well, it will surely be solved in here when some pro turns up here .. right now its a bit too early .. from my time, i will say 2 hrs from now10:04
Linux_Fresherquakky:  did it get messed up after u installed the restricted driver ?10:04
axzGuys how to add new wigets to my desktop like net stats or hd usage10:04
quakkyLinux_Fresher: well I downloaded the drivers from Nvidia's website10:05
Linux_Fresherquakky:  btw dont give up .. i had given up on linux 3 times before because i could not drop the 'windows mentality' .. this time i am giving it a go as if it was my first OS of life10:05
quakkyLinux_Fresher: but it was working before10:05
unbelieveArthurArchnix: probably the iptables.. but I did check all logs thay seems to be fine.. How can grep out files by size? then I`ll see wich files are growing.. the speed is unbelieveble.... 300mb left of...10:05
bullgard4sCOTTo: I understand that your Ubuntu laptop computer 'faithtop' does not have the Samba server and client packages installed. You will need to install them.10:05
Linux_Fresherquakky:  hmm .. there must be something that you have told the system or downloaded  before and after .. it cant auto mess up10:05
venomehi, once again could someone advice me on setting up suspend2ram / suspend2disk?10:06
mmmiiikkkeeeLinux_Fresher: sorry, I don't use gnome; but from what i read i thin you need to unzip the file(and not untar it) then specify the the .tar file for the gui program?10:06
Linux_Fresherquakky:  u downloaded directly through nvidia site or used some ubuntu update button and ubuntu got it from nvidia site ?10:06
sCOTTobullgard4: how do i do that quick?10:06
Linux_Freshermmmiiikkkeee:  okies, now thats a good info , so basically unzip and untar are different things in linux ?  i thought it was just decompressing ..10:06
quakkyLinux_Fresher:this is wat i did..installed ubuntu, installed updates, downloaded nvidia stuff from repo, enabled restricted drivers, downloaded and installed the drivers from nvidia's website...10:07
quakkyi guess i installed 2 sets of drivers?10:07
Linux_Fresherquakky:  and it got messed up  after the reboot right ?10:07
jumeauxslt a tous10:07
quakkywell it got messed up whne i tried the 'gdm' start command10:07
sCOTTobullgard4: can you list any EXTRA packages i would or would NOT install from samba - there are a lot there in synaptics10:08
zod_so when ppls use ubuntu ure dual boot or ust use Linux as main os?10:08
sCOTTobullgard4: is there a good gui i would use for control ?10:08
mmmiiikkkeeeLinux_Fresher: they are seperate things; tar take a group of folders and files and puts them all together as one file(but does NOT compress them); the .bz2 mean the the 'tar-ed' file was then compressed10:08
sureshotit worked now ty pcormack10:08
acee1234i keep getting issues from alot of my programs saying something is already listening on the port they need tor....azureus, ktorrent etc whats going on here. any ideas?10:09
smokeydHi people. I did a "dd if=/dev/hda of=disk.img"  from my hard disk. This disk contains one primary partition and one logical parititon. I can repartition this file with fdisk. But is there also a way to mkfs.etx3 one of the parititions in the image file?10:09
Linux_Fresherquakky:  hmm .. never heard about gdm command , but mine was messed up after the restricted driver reboot .. then was fixed using some command that was told to me here .. but i think u r not too far off from the solution10:09
Linux_Freshermmmiiikkkeee:   ooooh .. ok ..10:09
quakkyLinux_Fresher: i think i should just uninstall everything (gotta figure out how) and try reinstalling stuff10:09
sCOTTobullgard4: ok now i go to install it... its already there - my apologise10:09
mmmiiikkkeeeLinux_Fresher: I was thinking you might need to just unzip, but not untar the file; the README file says to use the tar file10:09
mmmiiikkkeeeLinux_Fresher: its just a guess, I am not sure10:10
zod_is it any major problems to use Linux as main os?10:10
Linux_Fresherquakky:  naw, i would hold on .. lets face it , we know nothing of linux yet .. not even the dir command [ which is ls in linux ] .. we cant yet poke around in here like we did in windows without atleast some basic knowledge10:10
bullgard4sCOTTo: According to my experiences you will need the packages samba, samba-common, samba-dbg, samba-doc, samba-doc-pdf.10:10
unbelieveanybody knows howto grep files out by size?10:11
quakkyLinux_Fresher: hehe ya i guess...alright then ..im off to sleep ...6 am and gotta work in 4 hours ..10:11
acee1234no one knows how to see what clogging my ports?10:11
Linux_Freshermmmiiikkkeee:  ok when i double click on the tar.bz3 archive, it opens up like winzip .. so how to extract the content as a tar file and not as a full folder with subfolders in it ?10:11
Linux_Fresherquakky:  dont worry at all and have a nice sleep .. usually all issues get solved in here for sure10:11
bullgard4sCOTTo: I do not understand your question: "is there a good gui i would use for control ?" Please say it in other words.10:11

bod_hey guys, i klnow you can change the GDM login screen theme throuh the gui manager but can you do it through terminal,. if so how?10:12
sCOTTobullgard4: disregard GUI question..... can you tell me the settings i need to get this thing working ?10:12
bullgard4sCOTTo: This is tricky.10:12
unbelievehello! my hard drive is getting smaller every second by *mb .... logging something and I cant find where and what .... any help??10:12
Linux_Freshermmmiiikkkeee:  right clicking on the folder in the archive doesnt have untar option,  only extract option10:12
ArthurArchnixunbelieve I'd reboot, unplug from the net, then use disk usage analyer to locate big files and folders.10:13
beltranhello, im new here  but in short is there any way to undo all the updates ive gotten?10:13
bullgard4sCOTTo: Do you understand German?10:13
sCOTTobullgard4: not enough to get me by no...10:13
ArthurArchnixunbelieve: Chances are though that you accidentally copied and pasted something in the background. do ps ax and see what's running10:14
sebrockI have an issue with upgrading my server to Gutsy, I use the "do-release-upgrade" and everything is fine until it will restart the nfs-kernel-server... then it just stalls and nothing happens???10:14
bod_ps aux10:14
acee1234i keep getting issues from alot of my programs saying something is already listening on the port they need tor....azureus, ktorrent etc whats going on here. any ideas? if you have none where might i ask ive asked #kubuntu and #tor10:14
Linux_FresherQ how to untar a file ? without extracting it ?    eg. ubuntoon-2Feb2008.tar.bz2   .. i dont want to extract the containts .. only want to untar it .. eventually it has to look something like  Ubuntoon-2Feb2008.tar   [ i think ]10:14
techt0nixi have a easy ? what does Hotplug mean in ubuntu lol10:14
smithhay algien10:14
mmmiiikkkeeeLinux_Fresher: I don't know how to do that in a gui; I don't use gnome, so you might want to ask some one else "how to unzip, but not untar" a file in gnome10:14
Linux_Freshermmmiiikkkeee:   umm .. wait .. u mean  "how to untar but not unzip"  right ?10:15
doffLinux_Fresher, bunzip2 filename10:15
unbelieveArthurArchnix; thanks dude! will try10:15
Linux_Fresherdoff: would this work ?  i pull the folder out of the archive manager --> so this is decompressing [unzipping] .. may be i can re-pack it to .tar somehow ?10:16
bod_Linux_Fresher, why not extract then tar?10:16
Linux_Fresherbod_:   DID IT !! :)10:16
doffLinux_Fresher, this should unpack to .tar file10:17
Linux_Fresherbod_:  but why i have a feeling that i took the longer way around ?10:17
bullgard4sCOTTo: /usr/share/doc/samba-doc/htmldocs/Samba3-ByExample/index.html is the best introduction to your problem. I do not know an English shortcut for that.10:17
mmmiiikkkeeeLinux_Fresher: no; I think you want to just unzip it.... its common in linux to see a group of files the were "tared" then "ziped(compressed)".  if you just unzip the file you get the "file.tar" part back...10:17
mmmiiikkkeeeLinux_Fresher: most gui programs will do both for you to make it easyer on you; they will fisrt unzip then untar the fle10:18
Linux_Freshermmmiiikkkeee:  i think i am understanding it now , but can i send u the archive file please so that u can have a look at it ?  its very small10:18
acee1234how do you see who is blocking/listing on what port10:18
beltranis there a reasonably easy way to undo all the updates ive gotten or am i stuck with them?10:18
Linux_Freshermmmiiikkkeee:  and trust me please, its not a virus or worm or anything .. i think10:18
bod_Linux_Fresher, i dont understand,.,. so you have solved the prob? an easy solution would be to right click --> extract here (removing the .tar.bz2) --> then right-click --> archive --> .tar   finished10:18
acee1234or just reformat and be done with it?10:18
Linux_Freshermmmiiikkkeee:  or i can give u a weblink for it10:18
beltranor do i need to do a fresh install10:19
mmmiiikkkeeeLinux_Fresher: i think you could do what bod_ said...10:19
Linux_Fresherbod_:  yes, i did it that way .. now i have ubuntoon.tar  ,   ubuntoon folder and Ubuntuoon-2Feb228.tar.bz2  on desktop10:19
sCOTTobullgard4: thanks10:20
mmmiiikkkeeeLinux_Fresher: now can you install the .tar file in the gui?10:20
Linux_Fresherbod_:  now next problem ... now when i try to install it through "appearance"  the .tar file doesnt show up .. only the Ubuntoon folder and the tar.bz2 show up10:20
bod_Linux_Fresher, thats fine, the longer filename is just the name of the tarball whereas the tar you made only has the name of the Parent file,. you could rename the new .tar file if you really wanted to10:20
bod_Linux_Fresher, is this a GTK theme?10:21
Linux_Freshermmmiiikkkeee:  i tried to forcefully give it the .tar file by clicking "all files" and choosing it .. now it says invalid format10:21
bod_Linux_Fresher, why didnt you want it in .tar.bz2 format?10:21
Linux_Fresherbod_:  i think so .. not very sure  .. here is the link to it -->  http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/GNUtoon%2BUbuntoon?content=7020610:21
Linux_Fresherbod_:  umm .. i dont know .. if i show the .tar.bz2 format to theme installer, it just says installation failed10:22
beltrandoes anyone know how to undo updates? is it possible? is there an easy way? should i just re-install?10:22
mmmiiikkkeeebod_: the directions says to install the "tar" file...10:22
smokeydhey people. Is there a way to boot the ubuntu live cd into a text-only version? No gdm/gnome/Xorg/etc?10:22

FloodBot3sCOTTo: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.10:29
benpiccosureshot: aah,you are taking about network shares?10:29
sureshotyes..im controlling ubuntu with vnc and want to transfer files to the computer that has ubuntu10:30
legend2440Linux_Fresher: go to your home directory and hit ctrl+h10:30

adyreHOW CAN I easily change the default 25 port for Postfix to 80, for example...?10:30
adyrePS: Newbie Linux10:30
sureshotoki whay is that?10:30
unbelievewhat does folder /home/user/.cache/tracker    anybody?10:30
bod_Linux_Fresher, works like a charm,.,.,. ok, remove everything to do with gnutoon/ubuntoon from your comp then download the ubuntoon tarball to your desktop and tell me when your at that stage ;-)10:31
legend2440Linux_Fresher: do you see folder called .icons?10:31
Linux_Fresherlegend2440:  yup .. i see many folders starting with . now, someone said they are hidden10:31
Linux_Fresherlegend2440:  yes .. its there10:31
benpiccosureshot: its an open implemantation of windows smb file share service, you you can share files with windows pcs and the other way round10:31
benpiccosureshot: there should be a howto in the wiki10:31
ubot3Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and http://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.10:31
legend2440Linux_Fresher: is ubutoon folder inside ?10:31
Linux_Fresherlegend2440:  basically i can move files there but i want to learn the gui things first before i start moving stuff without understanding what i am doing10:31
bod_legend2440, my way is easier trust me10:32
Linux_Fresherlegend2440:  yes there is ubuntoon folder there10:32
sureshotbenpicco. oki ty will look into that10:32

Linux_Fresherweeee !! sweeeet !!   thanks bod_ thanks legend2440 .. :) :)10:34
bod_Linux_Fresher, HAVE FUN,.,.10:35
legend2440Linux_Fresher: the reason it was failing was because you already had ubutoon in .icons folder10:35
Linux_Fresherlegend2440:  can u explain what was going wrong ?10:35
bod_legend2440, ah,.,. cool,.,.10:35
Linux_Fresherlegend2440:  but in windows it would ask me something like "there is already a folder called xyz .. overwrite / cancel "  etc .. no such thing in linux ?10:35
bullgard4'cat /proc/bus/input/devices' outputs a line 'N: Name="Sleep Button (CM)"' I take 'CM' as 'Control Method'. My computer does not have a 'Sleep Button'. Can you explain why the kernel still recognizes a 'Sleep button control method' device?10:35
* bod_ gotta do coursework now ;-( ..........10:35
unbelieveks3: it`s nearly 10gb big? O_o can i delete something from it?10:35

unbelieveks3: how to desable?10:37
legend2440Linux_Fresher: no i guess theme manager does'nt10:37
huiiieach time i plug in an USB-HDD Lacie 500gb, the HDD spins up and does not appear on Gnome-desktop. fdisk -l tells me that the HDD is there. when i unplug and plug it back again, its recognizzed and the icon appears on the Gnome-desktop: my question: HOW CAN I LET SYSTEM LOAD HDD WITHOUT UNPLUG/PLUG, IS THERE A COMMAND-LINE PROCEDURE?10:37
ks3unbelieve: System / Preferences / Sessions - uncheck the Tracker item10:37
unbelieveks3: ok thanks!10:37

titonor is there an application that can reset my laptop battery10:43
bastid_raZorSmegzor; 7.10 Gutsy is using Gnome 2.2010:44
huiiibenpicco: manual mount works fine, but than its not seen as external HDD. i get some permission issues. is there a command-line that lets the system recheck the USB-port and do the same automatic procedure as when we plug in a ext HDD ??10:44
SmegzorSorry I meant Gnome 2.2210:45
titonwell the battery is getting very bad....only got like 30 miin of time out of it.... and while using it on battery ubuntu warns and goes down to 0 % but i can still use it for like 20 min.... i just need the battery to know when its really empty and realy full10:45

faileastiton: what do you mean by reset?10:45
JuhazSmegzor, never. when hardy comes out, it'll have 2.22, but older versions aren't updated.10:45

patogenWhat do you do with processes that can't be killed, not even with "kill -9"?10:56
Linux_Fresherlegend2440:  yup .. sorry was on other side of the cube :)10:57
Linux_Fresherbod_:  wb10:57
huiiipatogen: u could do killall <processname>10:57
patogenhuiii: It doesn't work10:57
prince_jammysheyjoe`: it's not possible, unless the user is an admin user, in which case: sudo chown root filename, and sudo chmod 600 filename10:57
bod_Linux_Fresher, wb?10:57
huiiipatogen: u could also do $sudo kill SIGTERM <processID>10:58
Linux_Fresherbod_:  welcome back :)10:58
bod_Can you change the selected theme from terminal ?10:58
bod_Linux_Fresher, ty ;~)10:58
heyjoe`how do i do a filesystem wide search for a file?10:58
=== Black_Rook is now known as Black
patogenhuiii: ERROR: garbage process ID "SIGTERM".10:58
ks3heyjoe`: What's the goal? As long as you have rwx permissions to the directory containing the file, you'll be able to delete it.10:59
prince_jammysheyjoe`: sudo find / -name filename10:59
bod_heyjoe`, terminal --> locate nautilus10:59
ActionParsnipheyjoe`, find / -name "<name of file>"10:59
heyjoe`i tried find filename but that only looks in the current working directory10:59
huiiipatogen: sorry, here correct command: kill -SIGKILL <id-nr>10:59
prince_jammysheyjoe`: find /starting/path -name filename10:59
bod_heyjoe`, locate command is good10:59
ActionParsnipheyjoe`, yeah you need to use / after the find command so it serches from / and below10:59
prince_jammysheyjoe`: locate is fine also, but it doesn't directly search the drive. it searches a stored index11:00
huiiipatogen: and?11:00

heyjoe`thanks all for your help, that is all for today ;)11:01
prince_jammysbod_: just a guess, but it seems to be stored in that variable in the configuration file11:01
mad_max02Rudin_, just go to synaptics and search for java and install sun java11:01
ActionParsnippatogen, press the button on your drive11:01
prince_jammysbod_: the login theme, right?11:01
mad_max02Rudin_, I have 64bit too and it worked for me11:01
patogenActionParsnip: That does not solve the problem, I like being able to use eject.11:02
huiiipatogen: uups, thats something else, i think u should rather reload that instance than kill it,11:02
patogenhuiii: Hmm how do you do that?11:02
Rudin__mad_max02: did you install java from Applications --> Add/Remove?11:02
bod_prince_jammys, yer,  know where you can select which login theme with the System--> Admin-> Login Window      gui,.,. i need to change the theme with a script, so gui isnt n option11:03
patogenHmm sorry lunch ... will check back later11:03
huiiipatogen: i dont know exactly, modprobe? i dont know this, perhaps u have to re-formulate the question and post it here again....11:03
ActionParsnippatogen, try killing all the eject processes then run another11:03
ActionParsnippatogen, its not something ive used so I'm guessing11:03

benpiccowhy is mono so seldomly updated?  1.2.6 is out there for 3 month now :/11:04
bod_prince_jammys, cool, cheers,.,. im guessing its something similiar but what about changing GTK theme?11:05
ActionParsnipRubin, try sudo apt-get install --reinstall icedtea-java7-plugin11:05
prince_jammysbod_: i'll look around :)11:05
Slartbenpicco: seldomly updated? you want a new version every week?11:06

hwolffDoes anyone know a decent program to automatically manage IMAP emails? (filter spam, move emails into subfolders, forward others to another email)11:07
prince_jammysbod_: the gtk theme  appears to be somewhere stored in .gconf folder in you home dir11:07
prince_jammysbod_: i'm looking in my comp11:07
bod_ActionParsnip, is that a kubuntu variation on gksudo?11:07
prince_jammysbod_: the gtk theme has to be in the user's dir11:07
Slartbenpicco: or you meant why the repository version of mono isn't keeping up with all the mono releases?11:07
benpiccoSlart: no,but i want a new version in ubuntu -it still uses 1.2.411:08
prince_jammysbod_: maybe there's a default somewhere in /etc11:08
benpiccoSlart: yes, i mean, mior releaes of firefox, etc are updatet,too11:08
Slartbenpicco: the whole idea is to decide on one version and use that until the next version of ubuntu comes out.. unless there is something seriously wrong with the version in there..11:08
bod_prince_jammys, there seems to be alot of %gconf.xml files in .gconf11:09
Slartbenpicco: makes for a more stable operating system... you know what is in there.. today, tomorrow and next week..11:09
prince_jammysbod_: search for the string of your current theme11:09
Sergohow should i create the swap? As a logical partition or primary?11:09
bod_prince_what like      locate slickness             ?11:10
