bod_hey guys, when writing a script to use as a 'nautilus script' i need to have gksudo in it, now this is fine, the script is to chmod 777 whochever file i use it on, the first time i ran it it was fine and worked, but it now doesnt work because its no longer prompting me, in the same way you can use sudo for 5 mins or whatever it is and it only asks you once,.,. how can i make gksudo prompt me for a password 'everytime' in this script?00:00
SliMMhmm, foodbot is quite good00:00
maarek_anyone using  the new Adobe  AIR SDK00:00

billybod_: oh okay00:03
billybod_: thanks00:03
icanhasadminSteven2: you MIGHT want to try a ,/configure --with-qt-includes="path to your qt includes"00:04
bod_billy, but, it wouldnt be hard to program one,. if it can send pings then it can recieve packats, so i would have thought with a bit of know how its possible00:04
Steven2icanhasadmin: I don't know where qt includes is.00:04
bod_icanhasadmin, were u meant to put ./configure?00:04
Steven2bod_: I figured as much.00:05

Steven2Nope it still says Qt libraries not found.00:10

ExterisRiotGeek, /var/www ?00:11
troxorCodedragon: what's the problem?00:12

icanhasadminSliMM: ... you can mount an .iso file with mount? and have it completely uncompress and auto run all the info properly with full controls? if that works it's serious news to me00:12
invalidsyntaxis there a way to restore the source.list00:12
CodedragonI would love to get rid of my windows but if I can't get ubuntu working I don't know what else to do. I burned the image I downloaded to a cd and booted off of it and the same thing.

Al2O3icanhasadmin: the network card, and ubuntu's notion of that card.  Seems to have gone 'stale' or disconnected when my hub power cycled.00:28
troxorbod_: spaces delimit arguments00:29
fat-headanyone know of any good file splitter and joiners for linux ??00:29
bod_troxor, what does that mean?00:29
icanhasadminAl203: you can rmmod the module driver for your card, then modprobe it back00:29
Codedragontroxor: not that I know of, windows worked find for years on it...00:29
fat-headanyone ? ^00:29
Tylor-Vanim confused00:29
Al2O3ok, does that remove the mod from the kernel, and then reinsert?00:29
nikrudTylor-Van see the topic  , type    /topic00:29

Tylor-Vanlol00:30
matt__i wan to "controL" a downstairs computer from upstairs00:30
Al2O3matt__:  that is a big question00:30
bod_troxor, yes it is, autocompletion handles spaces00:30
Antireligionhow do i use the "locate" command to find links to files instead of the files proper?00:30
Al2O3there are a ton of tutorials online for that.00:30
matt__Al2O3: i've been trying a lot of them, but all i do is get confused.00:31
Al2O3its a complex issue due in most part the need to not just install the vnc server, but also get a port forwarded thru your firewall00:31
matt__Al2O3: do you personally know how?00:31
linkinxpicanhasadmin,  i got it :D00:31
Al2O3its a 10 million dollar question00:31

meherenim trying to add a dash (4 numbers in) to the end of only 9 digit dumbers is there a perl or vim script to allow me to do this?00:31
troxorbod_: try this.. make a file called "cp -al", then do ls cp -al :)00:31
Al2O3the number of possible configurations are limitless.00:31
matt__Al2O3: ok...then it should be easy, i'm good at forwarding ports00:31
icanhasadminmatt__: do a google search for installing and using vnc00:31
matt__icanhasadmin: i've been trying many tutorials, but i just get confused...00:31

photon_I installed Open Office 2.4 from the official website (deb files). Now I'm being notified to "upgrade" to the 2.3 version available in the repository. Can I exclude Open Office from upgrades or maybe remove it from being tracked?00:32

troxorthus, the part of the filename after the first space (unless escaped or enclosed by quotes) are interpreted as arguments00:33
matt__Al2O3: yeah, i've figured it out. but as i've said, all i really want to do is "control" the downstairs computer. I keep noticing that the ubuntu/kubuntu's both include something called "remote desktop". i'm thinking it is all already there, i just don't know how to use it...00:33

billyhow can i share an internet connection from my windows comp over a crossover cable?00:38
shadowhywindhay all just upgraded to hardy, and now my scanner doesn't work, any ideas?00:38
Al2O35900-5909 are the standard ports for VNC Server, on the world of linux they are desktops 0 thru 9 as I recall.00:38
Al2O3and if you want to do reverse connection request to the client instead, from the server, that would usually be 5500 and then it would come back to you as I recall on 5900.  Details of this are online.00:39
icanhasadminbilly: you need to use windows ICS, nothing to do with ubuntu00:39
Al2O3there are ways around the firewall.00:39
Codedragontroxor: it was a slackware version but it was almost 3 years since I had it installed so the kernal ver was quite old.. :D the only new thing I added was the video card.00:39

icanhasadminpraktora: you have to explain your problem futher. is your wifi shown with iwconfig?00:49
insomninjajoe12345, I guess it depends on the nature of the killswitch, but to restart networking you could open a terminal and type sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart00:49

praktoraicanhasadmin it is not shown00:52
joe12345insomninja: i'm pretty sure it is a hardware power switch. problem is, it's "windized", and is the fn+f2 hotkey. It turned it off once, but will no longer turn it back on00:52
icanhasadminpraktora: you need to install working drivers, i believe madwifi supports broadcom 43xx, but i could be wrong00:52
joe12345insomninja: oh, and i had no dice with the network restart :P. Same deal with dhclient. Is there a way to make ubuntu believe that there is wireless card?00:53

powder^lool, firestarter is the name of my pc01:18
ScuniziTeoz,  you have a couple of factors that you might not have taken into account.. first is if your ISP gives you a dynamic IP address it might have changed.. also your router is probably providing dhcp to your machine.. depending on setup that can change from boot to boot as well.01:18
sumalrpowder^: use the Gparted Live CD01:18

TeozI have a pretty static ip address, im sure01:18
RandoCalIdeally, i'd like an icon on my top panel, that just opens an SSH session automatically to my other linux box01:19
sumalrpowder^: Here's a helpful website about partitioning: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/partitioning01:19
Dr_willisRandoCal,  theres a tool that does that for gnome ive seen. It may be under hardy.01:19
Teozwhen I enter my modem-cable IP address, does the dhcp really mess anythign up ?01:19
Codedragontroxor: you ever hear of a problem like i am having?01:19
troxoroccasionally01:19
Teoziptables does work after all!01:19
RandoCalDr_willis: kk, i'll give that a try once i upgrade01:20
ScuniziTeoz the modem ip, or main ip doesn't have any relationship to the ip assigned by dhcp to your machine.01:20
Dr_willisRandoCal,  i cant find the name right now. :) it was some taskbar applet for gnome. ya enter the various ssh ip/options and it was just a simple menu.01:20
hpi have a very weird problem with my wireless01:20
Dr_willisRandoCal,  you could do about the same thing with a few scripts. easially enough01:21
ScuniziTeoz port forwarding in the router is done to your machines ip which is normally 192.168.x.xxx .. this the ip assigned by dhcp in your router.01:21
RandoCalCan I launch terminal with a switch command to have it autoconnect to a specific IP with a specific username?01:21
Dr_willisRandoCal,  sshmenu - A standalone and a Gnome panel applet for connecting to hosts using SSH01:21
Dr_willisRandoCal,  most of the terminalapps have a -e EXEXUTE SOMTHING  option01:22
* RandoCal goes to find sshmenu and try it01:22
Dr_willisxterm -e 'ssh whatever '01:22
TeozScunizi: yes I agree that port forwarding is the router getting a request for a certain port from the internet and a certain port is associated with a certain internal IP + said port01:22
Dr_willis!info sshmenu01:22
ubotuPackage sshmenu does not exist in gutsy01:22
Pici!info is broken01:23
ubotuPackage is does not exist in gutsy01:23
Scuniziteoz, some ISP's block know ports, like port 80 & 2101:23
=== jamesfoster is now known as jamessfoster
TeozScunizi: hm, so I how to configure my SSH to listen to another port other than 22 ?01:23
sumalrTeoz: go to sshd_config01:24
sumalrTeoz: wait one moment01:24
meherenmy terminal emulator is not wrapping text correctly. everytime it goes to the end of the window it restarts on the same line instead of going down a line, and when i shorten it, it goes up a line (replacing what was previously there) any one know what i screwed up?01:24
powder^they use port 10?01:24
iwksehi there, why alsaconf is not reachable on ubuntu/kubuntu?01:24
sumalrTeoz: modify the host's openssh daemon config file (sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config)01:24
sumalrTeoz: Then change port 22 to Port XXXXX01:24
RandoCalyup, doesn't exist in gutsy01:24
Starnestommyor add a new line01:24
Teozsumalr: ok wait, i am doing this over SSH since my samba is headless01:25

Teozsumalr: how high do ports go ? whats the last one ?01:26
RandoCalI'm pretty new to running a linux machine as my desktop OS..... i've had a couple linux servers for a while, and would normally just use putty to admin them. Now i'm looking to admin them from my Ubuntu box, do people generally just use the included terminal app? or is there better terminal programs that most tend to use?01:26
Don_Miguel troxor, see the link ... what is the sudo command to copy available-old to available (both in /var/lib/dpkg) ?? and I guess I also need to CD to /var/lib/dpkg ... first ...01:26
bastid_raZorRandoCal; ssh is your best friend in this instance01:27
ScuniziRandoCal, Terminal Services Client if you have a gui on the server or ssh is the better option from the command line.01:27
RandoCalso just run terminal from my accesories, and then ssh over like i've been doing01:27
Scuniziyep01:27
RandoCalcool01:28
troxorDon_Miguel: `sudo cp /var/lib/dpkg/available{,.backup} && sudo cp /var/lib/dpkg/available{-old,}` <-- fancy way01:28
sumalrTeoz: I'm not sure though you can use anything up to 6000001:28
iwkseRandoCal: man ssh for details01:28
Dr_willisRandoCal,  make an alias for each machines with the proper ssh command. Is rahter easy.01:28
sumalrTeoz: Lots of options there01:28
Teozsumalr: I'll have to get out my lucky numers now01:28
RandoCali'm able to SSH across no problems, i know how to get connected, i'm just looking for an easier way, rather than having to type in "ssh -l username ipaddress" each time01:28
Dr_willisRandoCal,  i tend to just use xterms, or gnome-terminal. thers others you can try. for X based terminals. Be sure to learn to use screen.01:28
sumalrTeoz: make you write it down so you won't get locked out01:28
sumalr*sure01:29
troxorDon_Miguel: or sudo -s , then cd /var/lib/dpkg/, then mv them around :)01:29

sumalrPwrSurge: and you still get disconnected?01:31
bastid_raZorTeoz; when you ssh in to your box you'lll have to specify the new port ssh -P1231101:31

I disconnected my ubuntu drive and put the other in the master position and booted to the windows install cd and did the 3.5hr install with updates. then I reinstalled the ubuntu drive and re-wrote grub to where it normally was. It picked up the fact that I had Windows on another drive and created a line for it.01:34
PwrSurgei heard there's an incompatibility between ubuntu and MacOS ssh01:34
Ace2016why not grub?01:34
PwrSurgewould that affect Free BSD as well?01:34

MeatGrinderKhajav1, can i use partimage?02:51
DariusTheoNoirwell...depends on what he has...if you've installed a bunch of stuff and you want it again, use something like apt-on-cd to create a second install disk--prevents you from having to download all the stuff you did before02:51

MeatGrinderKhajav1, i don't understand what you mean by remaster02:53
Khajav1MeatGrinder: remastersys and reconstructors are softwars that backup your system by remastering your system02:53

DariusTheoNoirin my opinion02:55
Khajav1MeatGrinder: it create a live cd or dvd from your current ubuntu02:55

alan_mKDE is a lot more graphically intensive than gnome billy.02:56
billyso why would you use it over gnome?02:56
DariusTheoNoirI don't ;)02:56
MeatGrinderKhajav1, ah! so it creates an image that fits on a disc. Nice!02:56
alan_mbilly, because its more beautiful to some and it looks somewhat like the windows GUI.02:56
MeatGrinderKhajav1, sounds like I might need to use DVD, I take it the program will span across CDs02:56

ScuniziMeatGrinder, if you're using the partimage cd and boot to it.. it works.. you can't unmount / while you're in ubuntu because you would then not be using it.03:26

DariusTheoNoiranyone notice that removable drives only automount when fstab hasn't already reserved the device (in my case sdb1)03:28
alan_mwhere are we taking him guys?03:28
geniibalthazarguy: I think your problem stems from the fact the file referred to is no longer called NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7667-pkg2.run since there was a new release03:28
ScuniziAndrewB, true.. but I've tried that in creating links while building a menu launcher and it balked at it.. I had to do the full path... either way in this case.03:29

KickboyHey all! I've been running the Hardy beta for a couple weeks now, and everything has been pretty smooth so far. Until I updated my packages a few days ago: Now compiz-fusion won't work, and can't find any debug information that could tell me why.

Scunizicode_kill, nope that's just the default03:39
PiousMinion5900+n where n = the screen number.03:39

DariusTheoNoirgksudo is for gui03:48

DariusTheoNoircorrect me if I am wrong, but I thought compiz and emerald were window decorators and effects--not strictly window managers.  (what I mean is KDE, Gnome, ion, fvwm, windowmaker...etc)04:11
ScuniziChaosTheory, you're not the host.. you're just plugged into it.. meaning you are also a guest of the router..

DariusTheoNoirall I know is that it doesn't work for me...04:13
sweetsinseDariusTheoNoir what i need isnt even a WM.. that is compiz.  in xfce xfdesktop controls the background and the icons/behaviour of the "desktop".  in  gnome nautilus perfoms this function.  i want an app thats neither but both04:13
DariusTheoNoirah...ok...now I understand what you are trying to communicate04:14
nickrudsweetsinse background setting, or icons?04:14
ScuniziChaosTheory, yes.. just in case the rom is got some bad info or it was left in a protected state from the factory.. by resetting it, it will get rid of any passwords that are on the router and the default "admin" will work to get into it.04:14

nickrudsweetsinse as far as I know, there are only 4 desktop managers in the sense you mean:  gnome, kde, xfce, and cde04:17
sweetsinsehave you used xfce?04:18
nickrudsweetsinse and cde is pretty brain dead, probably won't give you what you want.04:18
unopnickrud, not that i can name any off of the top of my head, but surely you discredit 20 years of unix desktop environments with that statement :)04:19
nickrudsweetsinse yes, briefly.04:19

nickrudunop I think I meant *in use* in any measurable fashion today04:19
sweetsinsenickrud under the desktop option.. there is a switch to 'allow xfce to manage desktop', if you flip that off it kills the desktop background and icons/etc.---but this has no effect on WM window management functions/actions.04:20
unopnickrud, i wonder what "desktop environment" i use .. i run fluxbox :)04:20
nickrudsweetsinse yes. You can do the same in gnome ;)04:20
nickrudunop you don't have one, you have a window manager :p04:20

SuperSayjinwhat programs cau u use to moniter cpu temperatures?04:21
alteregoabetty waintrop might help04:21
unopnickrud, so what exactly is a desktop environment in relation to the apps that it houses, contains and manages then ?04:21
bazhangalteregoa: for the last time please stop04:21
sweetsinsei just want to get more functionality out of the desktop04:21
nickrudunop in the same way one could (if they wanted to) run metacity as a standalone window manager04:21
sweetsinsei like to dump things there etc. not just look at photo04:22
nickrudunop I think of things that actually have a desktop you can put things on04:22
code_killdoes anyone here write python?04:22
unopnickrud, like what exactly?04:22
nickrudunop like nautilus in the context of gnome04:22
ChaosTheoryScuzini: Okay, can I just make a *new* network?04:22
ChaosTheoryScuzini: And won't that automatically make me the host?04:23
sweetsinseor thunar/xfdesktop to xfce04:23
unopnickrud, so if i use fluxbox and have nautilus draw a desktop, do i have a "desktop environment" ? :)04:23
ChaosTheoryScuzini: The XP computer has no "View available wireless networks" option.04:23
alteregoai cannot install gnome-keyring-manager04:23
code_killxp has that option04:23
sweetsinsefluxbox is a WM too04:23
nickrudunop more specifically, I'm not thinking of launchers but of folders and files. But I digress and am idiosyncratic04:24
tgelteris there some way to keep NetworkManager from connecting to a particular access point?04:24
code_kill"view available wirless networks"04:24
unopnickrud, or rather, if i use all the gnome components like the volume-manager, clipboard, gtk-theming, etc, etc .. i run them, and surely they are integral to the "gnome DE" ?04:24
ChaosTheoryScuzini: Are you there?04:24
nickrudunop sure do. You're running gnome with a replacement window manager04:24
sweetsinseim thinking about trying to hack thunar and compiz window rules into a desktop04:24
code_killwhat is a good network tool similiar to "nettools" for ubuntu?04:25
code_killif anyone knows?>04:25
unopnickrud, i'm pulling your leg .. :) i think that the definition of a DE is unclear and really is quite irrelevant to how you use and interact with the system.04:25

treble54I'm having issues using the built-in partitioning feature when installing Ubuntu 7.1004:30

Krumarhey, i'm trying to help a friend install gusty on his computer, it loads ok, but when we get to the partitioning section, it can't find the harddrive, we've tried putting with pci=nomsi and all-generic-ide, they didn't help any, anyone have any ideas?04:31
ChaosTheoryScuzini: Haha, sorry.04:31
ChaosTheoryScunizi: Sorry, not Scuzini. -_-04:31
ScuniziChaosTheory, :)04:31
mneptokKrumar: disable the crappy software RAID in the BIOS? ;)04:31
ChaosTheoryScunizi: I think I'm just going to revert to having the desktop be the "host."04:31
=== Adlai_ is now known as Adlai
bazhangKrumar: set bios to ata04:32
Krumarmneptok, i don't think the bois supports raid, but i will check that out now04:32
SoulBladei think i have a different issue... there's nothing in my /proc/bus/usb directory - ive attached the usb tuner.. will the device only be added if suitable drivers are found for it?04:32
nickrudtgelter basically you want to shrink the xp partition by pulling the right end towards the left, then tell ubuntu to use the freed up space04:32
hobbzillaDoes one have to create a TAP interface to create a bridge for virtual guests for each guest?? i.e. tap0, tap1, etc..04:32
Krumarbazhang, i'll check that too04:32
ChaosTheoryScunizi: Now, do you know how to fix my screen resolution? =P04:32
tgelternickrud: I don't think that message was meant for me04:32
ScuniziChaosTheory, do you have two nic cards in the machine? one wireless and one wired?04:32
ChaosTheoryScunizi, yes.04:32
nickrudtgelter thanks,  treble54 see my last above, I addressed it to the wrong person04:33
ScuniziChaosTheory, ok. then.. screen resolution.. I'll get the link. hang on.04:33
treble54oh ok :)04:33
unopnickrud, the desktop is the area on a display's screen that the user interacts with, the desktop environment is composed of the various objects that make up the graphical interfaces (on the desktop) -- but i know you'll beg to differ :)04:33
xbehave2 does the kernel need to be outside of an lvm partition04:33
arbeckI just installed the hardy beta 64 bit, installed ubuntu-restricted-extras, but DVD's still will not play... did i miss something?04:33

mneptokxbehave2: keeping /boot off an LVM is an extremely smart idea04:33
nickrudunop but I do agree completely with that statement04:34
treble54nickrud: ok, so of the three options, you're speaking about the option with the slider, indicating a percentage of the harddrive space04:34
nickrudtreble54 yes.04:34
tgeltermneptok: until grub 2 is standard, no?04:34
unopnickrud, i can disagree with my own statement tho -- i mean, what if all that was on my desktop was a terminal-emulator? ;)04:34
mneptoktgelter: even then i wouldn't do it.04:35
Krumarbazhang, and mneptok, no raid in bios and i don't see anything that always you to set to ata04:35
tgeltermneptok: reason being?04:35
nickrudunop we gotta stop, or mneptok will pull out his version of the pointy stick04:35
bazhanghaha04:35
mneptokKrumar: it's *something* about the drive controller. what make/model is it?04:35
unop:)04:35
leprasmurfhello all, is there a way to upgrade to OO 2.4 from ubuntu or do I have to uninstall from apt and install manually?04:35
mneptoktgelter: LVM calls are in the kernel. the kernel lives in boot. why would you put the only thing that can successfully mount your array *inside* the array? ;)04:36
bazhangleprasmurf: why do you wish to do so?04:36
treble54nickrud: ok, then if I put the slider at 0% (which I believe is all the way to the left), what does that tell the installation to do04:36
mneptoktgelter: that's like storing your fingers inside the telephone.04:36
leprasmurfbazhang: I am extremely frustrated with base 2.3 and wish to try 2.4 to see if any of the issues I'm having have been resolved04:36
nickrudtreble54 it'll probably fail, since the shrunken space won't hold the contents of the xp partition04:36
useroneI am looking for a good mp3 player, any tips?04:36
xbehave2my problem is that my /boot is only 8mb ( a problem i didnt realise till id done eerything else) so i imstalled the kernels to an lvm partion, is it possible to setup grub so it boots to the kernel in the lvm?04:36
bazhangcowon but offtopic here userone04:37
mneptokxbehave2: no04:37
mneptokxbehave2: you need lilo04:37
nickrudtreble54 to be honest, I never even came close to trying that, I'm chicken04:37
Newbuntu2hello04:37
tgeltermneptok: the next version of grub knows about software raid and lvm, so it's not really an issue like you say04:37
mneptoktgelter: i'm a pessimist :)04:37
userone@ bazhang - where should I go ?04:37
bazhangleprasmurf: what issues; please specify04:37
xbehave2isnt lilo dangerous?04:38
Newbuntu2does anyone have any recommendations for webcams that work outdoors and can record at 30fps, and are not a hassle to get to work in linux?04:38
leprasmurfbazhang: it's a long list04:38
bazhanguserone: cowon's home page or #ubuntu-offtopic ;]04:38
tgeltermneptok: well, ok...I guess I understand then04:38
treble54nickrud: ok let me put it in a different way: what am I indicating as I drag the slider more to the left vs. more to the right?04:38
bazhangleprasmurf: have you visited the open office irc channel?04:38
mneptoktgelter: i smell the way i do not because of poor personal hygiene, but because i've been burned so many times ;)04:38
userone@ bazhang, for players in general.04:38
mneptok(and poor personal hygiene)04:38
nickrudxbehave2 no, in fact it has a couple advantages over grub but grub has many more over lilo04:38
bazhanguserone: not sure there sorry04:39
tgeltermneptok: the best way to learn! (or at least the most long-lasting)04:39
xbehave2what do i lose by using lilo, and what do i gain?04:39
leprasmurfbazhang: the jdbc connector seems to lock some of my tables as readonly despite my privilege, I can't edit labels on a wizard created form, I can't find a way to create an input mask on text fields, I can't find any type of date picker/calendar for date objects04:39
userone@ bazhang, thanks04:39
nickrudtreble54 say you have one partition using the whole drive, 120gb. You move it to 50% , and the partitioner will try to shrink the partition to 60gb, leaving 60gb unallocated04:39
leprasmurfbazhang: yes, I spent most of the day lurking in there awaiting any answer, the only replies I got on there was when I was helping another user04:40
bazhangleprasmurf: thus my recommend of the open office irc channel they will be xperts at that04:40
useronebest mobo for linux?04:40
unop!best | userone04:40
ubotuuserone: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, join #ubuntu-bots and ask there.04:40
tgelterso, I realize that this isn't the best place to ask this (point me to a good channel if you know of one)...does anyone know of a good source for good-quality A/V receivers that won't break the bank?04:40
bazhangleprasmurf: though someone really good for oO may be in here04:40
leprasmurfbazhang: have not been successful in getting any replies to any issues, nor have I had much success in google04:40
nickrudxbehave2 access to a command line to manipulate the boot is available in grub, and not in lilo. Huge advantage. Lilo doesn't depend on the bios for identifying disks and partitions, not so big an advantage with better bioses that are now in use04:40
izinucsuserone, might try #hardware or #linux04:41
leprasmurfbazhang: hence I was asking the ubuntu specific question of updates outside of synaptic04:41
useronek, thanks.04:41
bazhangleprasmurf: oh I meant those specific issues04:41
nickrudtreble54 but if you have more than 60gb of data on the partition, you either will fail in the resize or the data will be corrupted.04:41
leprasmurfbazhang: which I did try, wasted most of the night trying to work around these issues04:42
xbehave2ive installed my system to a lvm, how can i install lilo, and get it to boot to my system?04:42

Tu13escan I tell my external drives to sleep when not in use?04:42
MeatGrinderwhy is it so difficult (impossible) to rename an NTFS usb flash drive in ubuntu?04:43
MeatGrinderwhy can't i rename a flash drive in nautilus? It lets me select rename and type a new name but then gives me an error?04:43
xbehave2nickrud how would i usually install lilo?04:43
treble54nickrud: ok, sorry to beat this to death, but what about if the slider is at 40% ?04:43
leprasmurfMeatGrinder: because ntfs is a closed source file system and any modifications is still in the experimental stage04:43
leprasmurfis there a way to upgrade to OO 2.4 from ubuntu or do I have to uninstall from apt and install manually?04:44
unop_Tu13es, i believe you can use hdparm to enable spindown04:44
ChaosTheoryI've got all the monitor resolutions under "Modes," but it's not showing up.04:44
bazhanghttp://download.openoffice.org/ you can download the deb and see if that fixes things leprasmurf04:44
ChaosTheoryAnyone know how to fix the monitor resolution problem? =|04:44
izinucsleprasmurf, or wait until hardy is out.. or install the beta version04:45
Tu13esunop_: hm, I'm just reading that I think04:45
unop_Tu13es, see here - http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Use_hdparm_to_improve_IDE_device_performance04:45
ChaosTheoryFixVideoResolutionHowTo doesn't solve my problem. . .04:45
nickrudMeatGrinder https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RenameUSBDrive (works for partitions as well)04:45
bazhangChaosTheory: how about pastebinning your xorg.conf04:45
leprasmurfbazhang: yeah, that's where I'm sitting now, the deb download claims conflicting packages with openoffice.org-bundled and refuses to install04:45
ChaosTheorybazhang: One second.04:45
leprasmurfizinucs: ty04:45
nickrudxbehave2 sudo apt-get install lilo, configure lilo.conf, and then write an mbr.04:45
MeatGrindernickrud, I'm there and tried that, didn't work at all04:46
ChaosTheorybazhang: http://pastebin.com/d11268fce04:46
nickrudtreble54 then 40% would be ntfs, and 60% unallocated04:46
MeatGrindernickrud, worked for renaming my windows hdd but not my usb flash drives04:46
nickrudMeatGrinder were they mounted?04:46
MeatGrindertried it mounted and unmounted04:46
izinucsleprasmurf, np. OO has agravated me as well.  espicially with some spreadsheet  functions that are easy in excel and bang your head hard in OO.. also printing envelopes is near impossible from a spreadsheet full of data04:47
bazhangChaosTheory: you have the drivers enabled? it only shows generic nvidia card and the nv drivers in your xorg.conf04:47
programador1_hola04:47

sCOTTohey does anyone have any good knowledge on networkin with windows machines? i have been having trouble from start to now.... my windows boxes can see my files but I cant see theirs... i am in a muddle...04:48
ChaosTheorybazhang: Oh, sorry. I need to enable the restricted NVIDIA driver.04:48
ChaosTheorybazhang: Okay, it installed.04:48
MeatGrindernickrud, doh! dammit i forgot it's FAT32, let me try that04:48
bazhangChaosTheory: that would help hehe04:48
unop_sCOTTo, what happens when you try and access the windows machines?04:48
ChaosTheorybazhang: It gives me the same resolutions.04:48
ChaosTheorybazhang: But it also says I need a system restart.04:48
sCOTToi cant find them or browse them04:48
leprasmurfizinucs: I'm finding the same.  I could have had this form done twice over in access, but running into so many problems in OO04:48
bazhangChaosTheory: restart first04:48
sCOTTounop_ i cant do anything with them04:49
nickrudxbehave2 I'd suggest you use grub, as far as I know that works fine with lvm. But I've never investigated actually setting it up myself.04:49
treble54nickrud: ok so that 60% would be unallocated and then looked into for allocating space for the Ubuntu installation, correct?04:49
MeatGrindernickrud, actually it doesn't say anything about vfat in that webpage, which command do I use in terminal... vfat or mlabel...I tried mlabel...didn't work04:49
sCOTTounop_ im no expert with linux - I forsook Windows vista for ubuntu as a supporter of death to windows....04:49
izinucsleprasmurf, i didn't catch  the issue you were having..  form data merges I've actually managed to get done with a spreadsheet of data04:49
nickrudxbehave2 I want to mention one thing:  you have to have a separate /boot   partition with lvm as I understand it. That might be your boot problem04:50
unop_sCOTTo, ok, given that you know the name or ipaddress of one of your windows machines .. what happens when you type this into the nautilus location bar.  smb://othermachinename04:50
treble54nickrud: from listening to you, you make it sound like the slider is the user making a request at how the user wants the partitioning to behave, letting the installation program decide the specifics04:50
nickrudMeatGrinder vfat, it works on fat3204:50
sCOTTounop_ is there a gui that will help me hook into the shares on my network?04:50
izinucsleprasmurf, is that what you're  trying to do?04:50
MeatGrindernickrud, ok i'll read up on it04:50
nickrudtreble54 yes? Isn't that how all software works?04:50
xbehave2it is but short of starting over, i cant use grub, ill look into lilo thx04:50
sCOTTounop_ irefox ok?04:50
leprasmurfizinucs: the jdbc connector seems to lock some of my tables as readonly despite my privilege, I can't edit labels on a wizard created form, I can't find a way to create an input mask on text fields, I can't find any type of date picker/calendar for date objects04:51
unop_sCOTTo, nautilus does it - firefox no, i believe there is something else on gnome (gnome-connect-server maybe) i can't remember what exactly04:51
ChaosTheorybazhang: Awesome! It has the right resolution now.04:51
bazhangChaosTheory: remember what you did for the future ;]04:51
ChaosTheorybazhang: But now, I can't see any of the title bars. . .04:51
treble54nickrud: I guess I have a different take on it, it seems like this slider is a little less user input and a little more input from the installation program04:51
bazhangChaosTheory: go into ccsm and adjust that or just disable compiz altogether ;]04:52
ChaosTheorybazhang: But I don't want to disable Compiz. :(04:52
ChaosTheorybazhang: Let me redo the settings.04:52
unop_sCOTTo, anyway, we'll get to that once we have troubleshooted this? what happens when you browse to smb://   and  smb://othermachinename  ??04:52
MeatGrindernickrud, I cannot find information in the ubuntu forums about using vfat to rename usb volumes, what is the syntax?04:52
izinucsleprasmurf, mine was simple compaired to that.  unfortunatly with no  experience with those needs I'm drawing a blank on how to help.. the OO IRC channel usually starts to pick up this time of night as most of them seem to be in a vastly different time zone.04:53
ChaosTheorybazhang: I don't even have Compiz installed! =D04:53

brianwhow do I restart NetworkManager?04:53
powder^Check here if you need the alternate desktop CD. This CD does not include the Live CD, instead it uses a text-based installer.  <<< Is this download going to act like a Windows msi?04:53
nickrudtreble54 you are saying how much you want to give to xp. Next step is how you want to deal with the unallocated space. There are options ranging from let the installation program deal with how big the root and swap partition are, to totally defining exactly how the partitions are laid out. This step is simply shrinking the xp partition04:53
nickrudMeatGrinder that page I gave you tells you exactly how to use mtools to do the job04:53

nickrudtreble54 no problem, the person that doesn't ask questions doesn't get the answers he needs ;)04:55
unop_Tu13es, your hdparm command04:55

leprasmurfamenado: any recommendations on how?  I saw one command that mihgt help, but couldn't figure out where to set it04:56
bazhangpowder^: without burning a cd? like using wubi? or what--please more info04:56
nickrudMeatGrinder did you get some error about mtools_skip_check?04:56

nickrudJohnny_5 ok, that's two different things. In the main, as long as they can read the file (and ssh lets someone read files just about anywhere, they can get them.05:04
izinucsChaosTheory, hang on . I'm  going to vnc into my ubuntu box.05:04

ScuniziChaosTheory, can you get to system/preferances/appearance?05:05
ChaosTheoryScunizi: Yes.05:06
atuli have problem related to sound.05:06
nickrudJohnny_5 myself I'd use sudo to copy the files into their home directory, then chown them to them if I wanted them to be able to alter them. So after moving them I'd do  sudo chown <theiruser>:<theiruser> <files> . That way they could write to them if they chose05:06

unop_Tu13es, well, what i would say is that obviously not all hdparm options are supported by some disks .. make sure the one you are trying to tweak is supported by the hardware (disk, chipset and controller), secondly, verify that you have the right hdparm command05:07

dreamorOr I guess I should say KVM/qemu05:17
bluebabybazhang, sure. This is the problem. in the month of March 2008, I used a D-Link WDA-2320 RangeBooster G Desktop Adapter.  I then removed it to put in another wireless PCI adapter. But ubuntu computer says "No internet connection." I tried putting back the DLink wireless card but that won't work now either. 8-(05:17
ChaosTheoryScunizi, are you here?05:17
BhaalWKHey guys, Im trying to install ubuntu server 7.10 And it gets stuck trying to retrieve libc6-udeb off the CDrom, first I thought it was the disc, so reburnt it, then I figured it had to be the drive, so I replaced it, but it still didnt work, so then I figured burn the CD at a slower speed, and its still not working...  Has anyone else experienced this?05:17
ScuniziChaosTheory, ok.. now in the advanced setting box your in, at the top is "general settings" click that.05:17
aaearoni mean. can i "upgrade" to 64bit from 32bit or am i going to have to end up downloading the 64bit iso regardless? bazhang05:17
ChaosTheoryScunizi, okay, done.05:17
bazhangaaearon: upgrade in this case means a complete reinstall05:18

bazhangbluebaby: is the computer hooked up right now with a wifi hotspot nearby?05:18

chiefwigmsand maybe a bartpe05:18
MrSteveMyNick - motherboard sound?05:19
bluebabybazhang, the computer is now hooked up, but am not sure if there's a hotspot05:19

bluebabybazhang, even thoug there was wireless internet in the air, the ubuntu comp wouldn't be able to find it.05:19
nickrudBhaalWK no, I mean when you boot the cd, there's an option to check the cd05:19
DarkglowHey guys, question about NetworkManager and dbus... in 7.10. Why is dhcdbd starting with S24 ? This means that dhclient will not run before S24, but windbind, ntp for example start at S20 and S23. I don't understand why a service depending on network starts before network interface ?!05:19
ChaosTheoryScunizi, okay, done.05:19

MyNickMrSteve: I have compaq b1914 laptop05:19
BhaalWKnickrud: No, strangely I havent...  But will do05:20
BhaalWKI should have thought of that...05:20
nickrudBhaalWK also, do an md5sum check of the downloaded iso if the burn check fails, make sure you got a quality download05:20
bluebabybazhang, well, no. The problem is with the computer not working together with the PCI card.05:20
bazhangaaearon: there is no real advantage to 64 bit unless you have more than 4GB of ram, are going to some heavy video compositing or like to live without youtube05:20

captaincan anyone help me stop my screen brightness from changing automatically when setting it to low..05:46
bazhangbluebaby: this is gutsy? you say the problem is with ubuntu and that is simply incorrect; the real villain is the company (wireless) not releasing their drivers05:46

dreamorKVM question... I have kvm lib-virt qemu and the machine manager installed.  When I go to create a virtual machine parvirtualization is greyed out.  Any ideas?05:46
captainnewbie ..05:47
captainyou mean its a setting in my bios05:47
bluebabybazhang, I'm not sure whether I've explained the story well. On March 1st, I installed a DLink wireless card. I turned on computer. Ubuntu made Wireless interent worked. On March 31st, I removed dlink wireless card and put in a different wireless pci card. I then couldn't get any internet. I put back same model of Dlink wireless card back into the comp, expecting wireless internet to work, but it doesn't anymore. And yes, it's gutsy.05:47
Y-Towncaptain: yo9u should be able to turn that off in bios05:47
alan_mcaptain, could be05:47
captainy-town, i set it to low contrast in gutsy...then after 3 minutes it shoots right up to bright .05:47
dreamorcaptain: are you setting it to low in your monitor or graphics driver?05:48

harsh1Video playback in ubuntu 7.10 is slow, I can eloborate the issue if anyone responds to my message?05:48

bluebabybazhang, i made a Xubuntu 8.04 beta CD for another computer, and i tried booting live from that, but it still couldn't recognize wireless connection.05:51
ChaosTheoryIf I try to open "volume control," it says "No volume control Gstreamer plugins and/or devices were found."05:51
bazhangbluebaby: you said this was gutsy? #ubuntu+1 for hardy thanks05:51
captainnot sure if there is that option in my bios last time i checked its a pretty simple bios not lots of options .. but i will try it and i'll be back05:52
bluebabybazhang, thanks for link. is the link for my current wireless card (as in http://snipurl.com/23aff )05:52
bluebabybazhang, yes, my computer is currently on GUTsy.05:52
bluebabybazhang,  But the live CD i tried tonight was hardy.05:52
CloudF1ChaosTheory: I had a similar issue with the sound and fixed that by going to Sound under preferences, and under the category devices changing autodected to one of the other options, followed by a reboot05:52
quailhi all, can anyone tell me if they have a problem with high system load when coming out of suspend and hibernate on there laptop?05:52
bazhangbluebaby: well I have given you several options: boot from the Gutsy livecd and see if that picks it up, install the linux drivers yourself, or go to #ubuntu+1 and discuss the xubuntu issue there05:53
bluebabybazhang, yes, re: linux drivers: is that for wireless card in http://snipurl.com/23aff ?05:54

danuelgreat. thanks nickrud06:01
nickrudsys admins and their perl06:01
geniizsiavash: Firstly if you're in recovery mode, sudo is unneccesary as you are logged on in sungle user (root) as default. Secondly why do you feel it neccesary to use recovery mode to install this application? Thirdly likely it needs bash instead of default dash which /bin/sh is linked to06:01

captaini also have a big creen with a Nvdia logo showing up before the login screen06:17
captainscreen*06:17
geniizsiavash: Then obviously it's not an application which runs normally in a terminal but needs X to run. Use alt-f2 then put the /path/filename to run it in gui then. If it needs admin privelege prepend with gksu or gksudo     etc etc06:17
iositdDOOM_NX, that's a good one. I had a guide for that. A sec06:17

DOOM_NXjust to mention, internet works through "NAT" connection...06:18
benanzoYes but I'd like to password protect the key + require valid user password -- that way I can just leave my private key on my work machine and not worry about it being abused.  They'd have to crack the key pass as well as my user pass.06:18
iositdChaosTheory, then update :-)06:18
aubadeJust 'gnome-session'? Rather use startx w/ .xinitrc than GDM since it's a single-user box.06:18
DOOM_NXthanks, let me check06:18
ChaosTheoryiositd: Update?06:18
iositdChaosTheory, sudo apt-get update06:18
iositdChaosTheory, BUT ONLY if you have internet on it now06:18

ether_chi06:19
ChaosTheoryiositd: Run what? =D06:19
zsiavashgenii:your right but as using in server i dont have gui so i need java enterprise "glassfish_javaee" to run in server then server apps can run on it06:19
bazhangcaptain: can you un-fiddle what you fiddled?06:20
iositdChaosTheory, the script that i'm writing right nwo06:20
benanzoI guess I could just make an ultra limited user on my machine which the key will get into, then 'su me' to get regular user.  that will do basically what I want.06:20
Y-Towncaptain: did you get the brightness fixed?06:20
ChaosTheoryiositd: That does what?06:20
geniiaubade: Starting gnome from startx usually involves exec gnome-session06:20
kambeiaubade: You could also just have GDM automatically log your (single) user in.06:20
iositdChaosTheory, hopefully fix your sound06:20
ChaosTheoryiositd: Okay, I see.06:20
captainwell its been more than 3 mins now ytown ..it didnt change ... so i guess it fixed itself ..06:20
DOOM_NXiositd, i think this one is reffereing to "Host Interface Network"...06:20

iositdChaosTheory, while you update i'll write your script then06:21
iositdDOOM_NX, yes06:21
ChaosTheoryiositd: Why are there so many updates?06:21
benanzoWhat is the most limited user I can create and still be able to ssh to it and exec 'su' so I can change users (but NOT to root) ??06:21
DOOM_NXhmmm i need the setting for "Internal Network" option06:21
iositdChaosTheory, because you haven't updated properly last night. You forgot the 2 sources that had the most updates.06:21
captainBazhang, im not sure what i changed . i think the screen model ... its on generic 1440 x 900 now ...06:21
ChaosTheoryiositd: Oh.06:21
benanzoI tried making a user with their shell 'rbash' but that's easy to get out of just by execing 'bash'06:21
benanzoHow do I fix that?06:22
ChaosTheoryiositd: Was it last night?06:22
ChaosTheoryiositd: I've lost track of time. o_O06:22

ChaosTheoryiositd: Everything has become a continuous blur of Ubuntu. =_=06:22
ChaosTheoryiositd: Oh, it's well past midnight here.06:22
geniizsiavash: Glassfish is a java development kit. It doesn't have anything to do with running the application you create with it on your server.06:23

rabiddachshundflannel: I have no clue. I'm learning by experience as opposed to being taught07:46

niktonihow to do back the changes Flannel? :/07:48
Flannelniktoni: but, what you did was, instead of appending vboxusers to your groups, you set it to vboxusers (and nothing else).  Do you have another user with admin privledges on the box?07:48
niktonii have root07:48
Flanneler... why did you enable the root account?07:48
niktoniroot is always there, eh? i just set a pass on it, i dont remember why - i guess now i know why07:49

unop_NorD, forget iptables was even mentioned, zambaboo meant ifconfig07:55
Lap_Tophow to make my computer secure from others07:55
unop_NorD, ifconfig eth0 hw ether <desired_mac_address>07:55

LlewxamLap_Top: as long as you don't give your root password to anyone, ubuntu is perfectly safe from any cracking.07:56
Lap_Topso you mean any one can install trojan and access my computer even if i have ubuntu07:56
compwiz18Lap_Top: no, they can't07:56
brian_maw: Nope, not there. It's just one standalone .lexe file, but I have no idea how to open it. Clicking it does nothing.07:56

cpk1compwiz18: or just want more control over all the packages =)08:04

MadpilotLap_Top, 1GB of RAM is ample for Ubuntu. Unlike Windows, newer versions of Ubuntu are *faster* on the same hardware!08:04
iceswordLap_Top, then everything has the right driver,no restricted?08:04
brianunop: Ok, so that I know for next time... What did that command actually do?08:04
Lap_Top icesword: I Have Pentium 4 Intel 2 Giga Processor08:04
Adantan_Alex!minimal08:04
ubotuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD08:04

bidgetno actually08:36
bidgetit was with noapic noirqdebug08:36

BuddyChristHow can I edit grub (permanently) to load "root (hd1,0)" instead of "root (hd0,0)"?08:38

arooni__when installing software from source where your distro has a package (but you need something fresher) ... is it generally good practice to use the option ./configure -prefix=/usr ?  what happens if you dont use this option?08:48

bidgetevga08:49
Adantan_Alexthe live CD wont boot properly because i got 256 megabytes of ram so i downloaded the alternate XD08:49
geirhaarooni__: no, good practice is putting it in /usr/local or /opt/something so it doesn't interfere with the package system08:50

CorbinFoxbidget: i think you should use the nvidia drivers first when it prompts you for it, and if that doenst work i think vesa drivers are the alternative.  i may be wrong tho08:50
Adantan_Alexok whos helping me?08:51
bidgetbut I mean dont just take my word that its the graphics card thats the problem... that was just my theory lol08:51
SkinnYPuppI was ...08:51

Adantan_Alexlol thanks08:51
bidgetbefore I even get to any menus or anything08:51
SkinnYPupplol wakeup08:51
Adantan_Alexso i downloaded ubuntu for nothing? lol08:51

CorbinFoxbidget: i am not saying that is, just saying that when that step comes up is all :P08:51
mike_bidget: have a built in card?08:51

ikonian08:52
Adantan_Alexyes.... i will download xubuntu08:52
Adantan_Alexdoes that have a live CD?08:52
ikoniaoops08:53
geirhaarooni__: then you mix your own files with the package system's files, making it a hell to clean up. It will probably work, but it's much cleaner to put it in /usr/local08:53
SkinnYPuppor logout and login backin with a different display manager i.e. xfce or kde or gnome and you can swap using ctl alt f7 f8 f9 with all 3 switchable like that08:53
ikoniageirha: very wise08:53
geirhaAdantan_Alex: yes08:53
arooni__geirha, is it the end of the world if i put it in /usr?08:54
