dmsupermansjovan: http://pastebin.com/m34ea55ae00:00
Danish989yeah, because when I play some music in ubuntu, the music is really low but the static sound is more dominantly heard .....00:01
CannibalMSee if its EMI static, ie power gen across the speaker lines,00:01
detedagowadamn puppy linux is way top big00:01
CannibalMoh ok, so its00:01
Danish989I know the kind of static sound you get when your speakers are turned up way too high, but that's not the problem here00:01
CannibalMdriver like issue00:01
DIL8o mb00:01
devilhow can i use the flash player in ubuntu system00:01
dubbyanyone know how to run mac os x programs on linux?00:01
Danish989yeah .. is it possible im only having this problem because its a live session? my sound card is creative soundblaster live 16 bit00:01
CannibalMcould be just crappy drivers,00:02
Starnestommydevil: try installing the flashplugin-nonfree package00:02
CannibalMand from my understanding (limited)00:02
sjovandmsuperman: okay... so what would you like the stuff to be then? owner = , other = ?00:02

dmsupermansjovan: I'm just trying to get ANY chmod to work. I was going for 777 to see if it would change00:02
dmsupermansjovan: and I've also got /media/sdb2/DocRoot mounted as /var/www, trying the same commands on /var/www result in the same thing: nothing00:03
devildoes the ubuntu 8.04 system has the flash player00:03
sjovandmsuperman: well, i don't know anything about the number codes, but have you tryed like sudo chmod -R a=r /dir/to/dfolder etc?00:03
dmsupermansjovan: 777 = rwxrwxrwx00:03
Starnestommydmsuperman: if it's mounted and not on the main file system, you may need to change the mount permissions in /etc/fstab00:03
dmsupermanStarnestommy: How can I do that?00:04
devilor i need download dy mysllf00:04

jcornwalldetedagowa, I guess you could try a PXE netboot if it supports it, but that's real messy to set up00:07
detedagowahow do i do that?00:07
jcornwalldetedagowa, it's a bit involved - Google suggests this http://wiki.koeln.ccc.de/index.php/Ubuntu_PXE_Install00:08

Max_-Hi, I've just installed teamspeak and for some reason I can't Self->unmute mic and speakers.... ?! any idea about this?!?!?00:20
lewenchTeamColtra[NADC], No, only the mic goes down. I was wondering if there is a configuration for this00:20
jcornwalldetedagowa, with your text editor of choice00:20
jcornwalljust save to /etc/inetd.conf00:20
detedagowak00:20
TeamColtra[NADC]Wapko, thats what i am asking, is how I do that. :)00:20
NithNBrepresent: check /etc/environment and see what your PATH variable says00:21
henningy hallo thar00:21
TeamColtra[NADC]Lewench, so instead of controlling your speaker  volume, it controlls your mic volume?00:21
TwinXnorty; I think you need cupsys and maybe xprint00:21
dogmeatwhilst holding my loins, im upgrading to 7.1000:21
lewenchTeamColtra[NADC], Yes00:21
lewenchweird i know TeamColtra[NADC]00:21
hatterwhere do i find gnome-cups-manager after its installed ?00:21
NBrepresentNith: PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games"00:21
TeamColtra[NADC]lewench, after you figure out... tell me, because controlling my mic volume is more important to me then speaker volume, and that would come in handy00:22
Smokeygo 8.0400:22
TeamColtra[NADC]:) I *WISH* I had your error ;)00:22
lewenchTeamColtra[NADC], hahaha ok00:22
wapkoTeamColtra[NADC]: you just click the +add button and type in the name of the program and the command you use to launch it. then click ok, and it should star the next time you log in00:22
detedagowawnot let me save the file WTF00:22
NBrepresenti throw the java directories in PATH then?00:22

elmerPLEASE HELP00:37
elmerI just want my computer to work00:37
Nithelmer: #grub will likely be better for your issue00:38
Starnestommyelmer: I think it's a hardware or bios problem00:38
Danish989yes nickrud, it gave me a list of hard disks00:38
elmerlast time I was able to fix it by using the LiveCD to boot from first hard disk00:39
elmernow it won't work00:39
nickrudDanish989 so the devices are there. Now, when you say you 'cant' even access it' , just what exactly are you talking about? How are you trying to access it?00:39
lewenchIs ubuntu tweak worth getting for someone new to ubuntu/ Kinda knows linux?00:39
elmerStarnestommy, uh... I think it might be because I hit the restart button on my case while in windows, which just cuts power00:40
nickrudlewench what is ubuntu tweak (I'm always suspicious)00:40
elmerStarnestommy, but I fixed it last time by using the LiveCD to boot from first hard disk00:40
elmerthat doesn't work now00:40
Starnestommyelmer: how old is this hard disk?00:40
elmer3 months00:40

fr0ggyQuick question. Ubuntu v-7.10 is supported 'till 2009. If a newer version was to come out, let's say v-7.11 perse, is there a feature in ubuntu that will allow me to update to the latest version? Or do I have to uninstall my existing version and start from scratch?00:41
TwinXelmer try to startup windows and shutdown properly and try again00:41
elmerLiveCD is booting!00:41
Danish989im trying to access them using the ubuntu file browser .. so I can see the folders and files00:41
elmerTwinX, GRUB isn't working, I can't00:41
lewenchnickrud, http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-tweak-ubuntu.html an explanation00:41
Danish989when I double click on my SATA hard disks (that are formatted with NTFS) nothing happens at all .... when I double click the other hard disks, I can see the folders and files in that hard disk00:41
Danish989can this be because im on a live session?00:42
noodles12just got virtual box working. how do i make the screen bigger? i did full size but it shows the same size screen and the rest is blacked out00:42
danbhfivefr0ggis: you will be able upgrade00:42
GneaDanish989: probably. you're gonna need ntfs-3g00:43
nickrudlewench I've seen these before, they don't do anything more than gconf-editor does00:43
TwinXDanish989;  maybe you need to install ntfsprogs and ntfs-3g or try to access them as root00:43
unoplewench, looks jazzy but i can say that it's probably not officially supported00:44
lewenchnickrud, Ah ok00:44
Danish989but isnt ntfs-3g already installed in gutsy gibbons?00:44
TwinXnoodles12; whats the resolution of your guest machine?00:44
* nickrud never uses the live cd, so will bow out00:44
GneaDanish989: check to see how it's mounted, if it is.. and if it isn't, see what the kernel has to say about it00:44
Danish989how do I do that gnea?00:44
trentorhola00:45
noodles12TwinX: i have no idea. there wasnt' anyway of changing it during the set-up. so whateve rthe default is?00:45
GneaDanish989: this your first time using linux? you're gonna need to open a terminal and use the command line00:45

lewenchtodd_, Try sudo ./nvidia-settings if you have an nvidia card, its the only thing I read and it worked for me00:46
Danish989also, when I click on the hard disks, on the bottom a process starts which says "starting admins..." but then it closes by itself00:46
Soleonecan anyone tell me if i can safely just install java5 via apt-get install sun-java5-jdk ?00:46
todd_lewench: ATI here, and I'm using the xorg ati driver00:46

Danish989how do I check if NTFS-3g is installed or not?00:48
GneaDanish989: df will show you what's mounted, dmesg will tell you the kernel messages00:48
nickrudDanish989  dpkg -l ntfs-3g00:48
unop_Danish989, search in synaptic?00:48
josedenocheits it posible to get the GifTOXIC download a bit faster??00:48
Danish989ok, I used the df command and on the list I only see /dev/sda5 and /dev/sda100:48
Danish989but I have 2 more hard disks .. and they aren't present on this list00:49
trentorq es eso de gif toxic jose00:49
GneaDanish989: if they aren'ted mounted in /media/SOMETHING then that's probably not them... df -Th  will show you what FS they use00:49
Soleonebastid_raZor: thx00:49
Danish989ntfs-3g is installed, so that is not the problem00:50
Totemhow to I run files with the extension .run?00:50
raj__my englis not so good00:50
Jack_Sparrow!es00:50
ubotuAquí solamente hablamos inglés. Para Español, por favor entre en los canales #ubuntu-es o #kubuntu-es - allí obtendrá más ayuda.00:50
unop_Danish989, maybe this command lists the other missing partitions.  sudo fdisk -l00:50
soundrayTotem: avoid it when you can. What does this .run file do?00:50
trentorok00:50
Totemsoundray: it is an automated graphics driver installation00:51
GneaDanish989: could be the ntfs journal is borked or maybe you just need to mount them as root somewhere00:51
soundrayTotem: for what card?00:51
Totemsoundray: why should I avoid it?00:51
Danish989yes, it does .. I can see /dev/sda 1 , sda2, sda3, and sda500:51
Totemsoundray: ati 9200 Pro00:51
Danish989but only sda5 and sda1 are mounted (as I saw by the df command)00:51
elmerso if I just delete my Ubuntu partition, will GRUB be gone?00:52
soundrayTotem: because Ubuntu supplies packaged drivers for ATI cards. They continue working after kernel upgrades etc.00:52
unop_Danish989, well, now that you've seen that output, which device do you want mounting?00:52
Jack_Sparrowelmer, no the mbr will still have some of the info00:52
Totemsoundray: where do I get those? And what is wrong with .run files?00:52
soundrayTotem: System-Administration-Restricted Drivers Manager to enable them00:52
elmerJack_Sparrow, do you know how I would erase that?00:53
Danish989do you think I'm not going to have the same problem after installing ubuntu?00:53
danbhfiveelmer: are you trying to use windows?00:53
Totemsoundray: I don't seem to have a Restricted Drivers Manager in my administration menu00:53
strabesI'm experiencing a weird issue with capslock. Basically the LED on my laptop is reversed. When capital letters are not being outputted, the LED is on. When they are, it's off. Any ideas?00:53
soundrayTotem: there is nothing wrong with them per se, except that you bypass the package management system, which means that whenever you do an update, your risk breaking your graphics00:53
soundrayTotem: are you on gutsy?00:53
Jack_Sparrowelmer, Go to #Windows and ask them how to boot windows cd and do a fixmbr00:53
Totemsoundray: hardy00:53
elmerdanbhfive, I am trying to get windows to boot00:53
unop_!who | Danish98900:54
ubotuDanish989: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)00:54
GneaDanish989: a livecd usually doesn't have everything setup the same way as a full installation, which is more likely to automate and mount other hard drives00:54
soundrayTotem: then you should install the package jockey-gtk and run jockey-gtk (and you should really be asking in #ubuntu+1 -- this channel is for released versions only)00:54
ropoyhello00:54
danbhfiveelmer: what Jack_Sparrow said is correct, you gota do some sorta fixmbr thing, and #windows is a good place to ask00:55
josedenochedoes anyone knows how to configure gifToxic to download a bit faster??00:55

LjLTeamColtra[NADC]: it's probably in Add/Remove too, but more generally it will be in Synaptic, and i could also just tell you to go in a terminal and type: sudo apt-get install amsn00:57

orudiei have it installed, but dont know what to do with it01:16
maarek_orudie: everything that isn't installed on the desktop01:16
maarek_like LAMP01:16
Danish989is there a preinstalled program in ubuntu for mounting drives?01:16
maarek_orudie: LAMP is only on the server and there's no GUI so you can use a smaller system01:16
orudiethe question is01:16
soundrayDanish989: do you actually read the advice that is being sent your way?01:16
elmerunop_, I think it is that I used my case reset button which just cuts power01:17
Jack_SparrowDanish989, create a mount point and mount the drive..  not that hard to do01:17
unop_!grub | elmer01:17

elmerunop_, yes, I see that guide01:17
orudiemaarek_, the question is i have it installed, but dont know what to do with it, i have a web server installed thats about it01:17
maarek_another reason for the server is to run apps that take up CPU and ram on the desktop01:17
Danish989I'll try googling for instructions01:17
Jack_SparrowDanish989, man mount01:17
soundrayDanish989: no, you should just read the links that ubotu gave you01:17
elmerunop_, when I find /boot/grub/stage1 it gives Error 15: File not found01:18

elmerunop_, this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows01:18
Jack_Sparrowelmer, which version of Ubuntu do you have on the hard drive?>01:19
TeamColtra[NADC]The version of amsn that i get when typing sudo apt-get install amsn is out of date, is there a way to update it?01:19
maarek_orudie: trust me, start creating php and pearl apps, you'll see that the server side is required to run the programs correctly01:19
elmerJack_Sparrow, 7.1001:19
maarek_orudie: other than that, you're just creating HTML files01:19
unop_elmer, you should ignore that command, it that needs correcting .. use 'fdisk -l' to find out which device01:19
Jack_SparrowTeamColtra[NADC], not without going outside our repos01:20
tarelerulzI am thinking about useing the  ndiswrapper dep pack I got with synaptic To make my wireless work on Ubuntu 8.04 .  I have the windows drivers on my other partition .    the two packages are ndiswrapper-util and ndiswrapper -common01:20
elmerunop_, in the terminal or gru01:20

elmerunop_, it didn't return anything in the terminal and in grub it gave unrecognized command01:20
TeamColtra[NADC]soundray, well it says that there is a new version available, and then when i try to sign on, everything is just blank so i figured it was because of my outdated version01:20
unop_elmer, both find and fdisk are cli commands .. you might need sudo prepended01:21
elmerunop_, thanks01:21
soundrayTeamColtra[NADC]: check if there is a new version in backports01:21
maarek_orudie: if you installed the server than installed the desktop, than I can understand, the server just separates programs that a regular desktop doesn't need to run01:21

dmsupermancan anyone help me with getting twinview, or ANY form of full-resolution dual monitor working?01:29
dmsupermani've got a nvidia 7900 with the nvidia restricted drivers01:29
unop_elmer, not at all good, the disk isn't detected by linux .. use this command and go through the output carefully to try and find out why the disk might not have been detected.   dmesg | less01:29
mzanfardinocan I set up encryption on a directory (say where my documents are located) that I can must decrypt before use?  I already encrypt my drive, but I'm concerned about a compromise using my user name and pass.  I'd like to further encrypt working files as a directory, if possible01:29
elmerunop_, OK! If I type fdisk -s it responds with a help file01:29
unop_elmer, fdisk -l01:30
dmsuperman"gksudo nvidia-settings" opens up a dialog with no options to configure monitors01:30
soundraydmsuperman: it's a bit involved -- read the README.txt.gz in /usr/share/doc/nvidia-glx -- also see the factoid:01:30
Alan_MHammer89_, i was incorrect, it is not in .bashrc by default, but your certainly capable of putting it in yourself :D01:30
elmerunop_, Wait, what?01:30
soundray!dualhead | dmsuperman01:30
ubotudmsuperman: Information about dual-head on linux can be found on http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/DualHead - See also !Xinerama01:30

dmsupermanrbil, soundray: I used the guide http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=22117401:31
unop_elmer, i can't say exactly, you'll have to trust your judgement there01:31
bastid_raZorlewench; #conky will probably be more help.. i can help you there.01:31
dmsupermanBacked up xorg.conf, and ran the auto-config01:31
elmerunop_, Wow. I don't have any judgment. That's why I'm here...01:31

lewenchbastid_raZor, Im on there, just asked. =)01:31

Odd-rationaleforrest: one way would be to apply a disk label to them, but that would require reformating...01:31
unop_elmer, have a look, it's all in english :)01:32
elmerunop_, English? More like computer speak...01:32
unop_mzanfardino, you can use openssl to encrypt a tarball with a password .. just not a directory tho.01:32
elmerunop_, what part relates to the hard drives?01:32
soundrayOdd-rationale: not really, you can label partitions without formatting01:32
Odd-rationalesoundray: really? didn't know that. how? please enlightne me :)01:33
soundrayOdd-rationale: tune2fs -L01:33
=== Raven_ is now known as ravenkin
Odd-rationalesoundray: ah. I see.01:33
mzanfardinounop_: yes, I currently tar my financial records and encrypt them with openssl.  I was hoping I could encrype a whole working directory.  Maybe instead I could encrypt a partition and then mount it manually?  Is that possible?01:33
Dr_willisforrest,  what filesystem are they?  tune2fs for ext2/3 - i boot to windows to label vfat/ntfs01:33
rbildmsuperman: really it comes down to having xorg.conf setup for twinview, have you looked at the manual way of doing it (link from the URL you just posted)? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=177358401:33
Odd-rationalesoundray: works for all fs?01:33
unop_elmer, again, i couldn't say just what part, it could be due to any number of reasons01:33
dmsupermanrbil: yes, i tried those steps and restarted xserver01:34
soundrayOdd-rationale: for fat fs, there is mlabel in the mtools package, which isn't quite so convenient01:34
dmsupermani'm in mirror monitor mode now01:34

dmsupermanhrm, didn't notice these01:34
Odd-rationalesoundray: but it would work for ext?01:34
rbildmsuperman: can you post your xorg.conf?01:34
unop_mzanfardino, sure, you can use something like truecrypt to mount volumes as encrypted filesystems01:34
forrestDr_willis, they were formated in Windows and I am pretty sure they have labels01:34

dmsupermanyes, just a sec01:35
mzanfardinounop_: ok, I will look into truecrypt01:35
elmerunop_, so you don't have any idea what I should look for01:35
soundrayOdd-rationale: I haven't tried, but I would generally trust man tune2fs...01:35
Odd-rationalesoundray: looks like onle ext2/301:35
soundrayOdd-rationale: what do you mean by ext?01:35
unop_elmer, well, i'd look for something like "device sda: fault at blah, ignoring due to foo, do bar to fix" .. :)01:35
dmsupermanrbil: http://pastebin.com/m51cc1aff01:36
Odd-rationalesoundray: ext2 and ext3 filesystem01:36
elmerunop_, that I will do!01:36
unop_elmer, go though it, you never know what you'll find, it's really worth the shot01:36
soundrayOdd-rationale: yes, of course, that's why it's called tune2fs. Did you get my line about mtools?01:36

OmletteSlowly, lol02:03
elmerunop__, Yeah, last time it took forever, but it had text on the signal, so that was a good thing02:03

soundray[[bc90021]]: well, grep -rl is your friend :)02:21

mohbanadid anyone get my messagE02:21

Nithsagredo: try "sudo invoke-rc.d mysql start"02:22
rbildmsuperman: then work your xorg.conf looking at what I sent u02:22
soundraydmsuperman: they are probably right02:22

Peloorudie, that is way over my head , but there are some instructions you can try to follow on the original link you gave me ,  you'll probably need to install build essential first ( sudo apt-get install build-essential)  that will let you make and stuff,   let me look for hte correct tar command syntax02:24
anubis26aight thanks02:24
dmsupermanrbil: kernel framebuffer device interface?02:24

neftyI am trying to install VMWare Tools in a virtual machine.  I installed the build-essential package, then extracted the vmware tools  tar.gz file.  I ran the vmware-install.pl script to install it, and successfully did, but now I have to configure it.  It's asking me "What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running02:25

dougskopharoh: you need to install the package that matches your kernel. most likely thatll either be linux-headers-386, or linux-headers-686. you can use the command, 'uname -r' to see your kernel version if you want to check02:36

dmsuperm1nPelo: and on first booting it it says it's in low-settings mode02:45
dmsuperm1nPelo: It makes the happy noises though02:46
Pelodmsuperm1n,my fist recommendation is to do  sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg first , and select eh vesa driver,  meaning we'll start from scratch ,  then' we'll ge tyou the one monitor working properly then you can get the dualhead stuff going02:46
rbildmsuperm1n: here's some of it ..ERROR: NV-CONTROL extension not found on this Display.02:46
dmsuperm1nPelo: alright, h/o02:47
Pelodmsuperm1n, run the reconfigure, and select the vesa driver,  for everything else leave the default,  exept the resolution you can go to 1024 if you want02:47
dmsuperm1nPelo: so, don't auto-detect hardware?02:47
dougskoanyone else find the fluxbox package to be broken? like itll load up for a half a second, then just throw you back to the console with no errors?02:47

Pelodmsuperm1n, understand I can only take you so far in this problem, you'll have to do most of the work yourself02:48

q_a_z_stevePelo: can you help me with partimage?02:49
dougskonefty: you should be able to use whatever default directory it suggests. i dont think you need linux-headers-virtual, but it doesnt hurt to install it anyway. and you can check what kernel youre using with 'uname -r'02:49
Pelodmsuperm1n, one should be selected as default, use that, or just skip or next or wathever02:49
neftydougsko: the problem was that the default directory didn't exist02:49
Peloq_a_z_steve, i do not know partimage, I 've never used it02:49

Pelodmsuperm1n, ok restart x , you should have a gui now02:50
bazhangdougsko: this is fluxbox on top of ubuntu or the straight configured fluxbuntu distro02:50
dmsuperm1nctrl + alt + backspace seems like it doesn't reload the config02:50
Pelodmsuperm1n, sudo shutdown02:50
neftydougsko: okay, I checked which kernel I was using, it's just 2.6.22-14-generic02:50

kravlinit's a problem with a 754 port board. it starts, displays an error that it can't allocate region 3 and then stalls out on the loading bar.02:51
dougskobazhang: ubuntu + flux. also the fluxbuntu though. my solution was to just comile my own from the website and make a deb from that02:51

Pelozeeeee, try asking in #ubuntu-cn they probably know02:51
bazhangzeeeee: install scim/skim and the language support02:52
dmsuperm1nPelo: alright, rebooted02:52
dmsuperm1nrbil: correct :D02:52
Pelodmsuperm1n,  do you have gui now ?02:52
pharohdougsko: wow!!!too much!question,what does it mean when they say a language is objective?02:52
zeeeeebazhang, are they packages? do i install both?02:52
dmsuperm1nPelo: It's weird. When i first come to the user screen, it's a high resolution. Then I enter my user/pass, and it goes way low res and i'm stuck again02:52
bazhangzeeeee: you on gnome or kde02:52
dmsuperm1nPelo: still just orange wallpaper and no windows or anything but a cursor02:52

Pelodmsuperm1n,  your install is majorly borked02:53
rbildmsuperm1n: I think the driver you have is screwed. Maybe it didn't install properly?02:54
dmsuperm1nPelo: I've just installed it yesterday, and i haven't even changed anything02:54
ahmed_j/ #linuxac02:54
dmsuperm1nrbil: How would i re-grab it from command line?02:54

ahmed_sorry i try to log into the arabic room02:54
dougskopharoh: read a ruby tutorial to learn about objective languages02:54
Pelodmsuperm1n, for the computer you are having trouble with atm form the gui02:55
dmsuperm1nPelo: That's what I've been saying. I don't have a gui to use. it has the cursor, sure, but i can't do anything else.02:55
pharohdougsko:okay,thanks.02:55
Pelodmsuperm1n,  type alt+f2 , you should get a little box for launching apps02:56
rbildmsuperm1n: you're doing Alt+F7 to get to gui ?02:56
dmsuperm1nPelo: nope02:56
dmsuperm1nrbil: yes02:56
dmsuperm1nrbil: well ctrl + alt + f702:56
bazhangzeeeee: you then need to configure scim global engine and how to launch it; or you can right click select input method and then you are good to go02:56
Pelodmsuperm1n, ok ,  try this  get back to consol and type  sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop02:56
dmsuperm1nrbil: nvm, yeah just alt + f702:56
dmsuperm1nPelo: already latest version02:57
neftydougsko: okay, I get it now, I was trying to use headers for different versions of kernels I wasn't running.  Sheesh this is confusing... shouldn't the headers for your kernel come pre-installed?02:57
dmsuperm1nPelo: isn't that just reinstalling ubuntu completely?02:57
Pelodmsuperm1n, how did you originaly install this ?02:57
dmsuperm1nPelo: live cd02:57
rbilPelo: how at cli does one switch to metacity if he's got compiz desktop by default?02:57
Pelodmsuperm1n, I was assuming you were missing a bunch of packages02:57
dmsuperm1nPelo: nope02:57
dougskonefty: in ubuntu, they assume people arent compiling things. thats why it doesnt come with the gnu tools or anything02:57
dmsuperm1nPelo: at one point, gui worked02:57
Pelorbil,  no idea02:58
dmsuperm1nPelo: but when I was trying to get dual monitor going02:58
dougskobazhang: have you noticed anything weird about the fluxbox packages too?02:58
dmsuperm1nPelo: the xserver configuration got thrashed somehow02:58
bazhangkravlin: cant find it; what I did was paste that exact error message (the long one) into a search engine of choice and it gave me the ubuntuforums link02:58
rbildmsuperm1n: u still have mine and your old xorg, correct?02:58
kravlinok. thanks02:58
kravlinbazhang: last night?02:58
dmsuperm1nrbil: not yours, my very first original that came with install, yes02:59
kravlinbazhang: thanks for the help too.02:59
linkinxpis there any program similar to quickbooks?02:59
Pelodmsuperm1n, you messed up big time,  I recommend a clean install, start from scratch,  just reinstall fresh, and when you get a working desktop come back here and we can proceed from there02:59
bazhangdougsko: only used the easy configured fluxbuntu distro, haven't tried fluxbox on Hardy yet02:59
dougskonefty: thats something to remember too if you decide to switch kernels. youll need the corresponding header package as well02:59
dougskobazhang: well me neither. i was referring to gutsy02:59
bazhangkravlin: yeah, the pci failed to allocate region 3 0.000.000 etc02:59
levanderHas anyone else tried opening a KML file in Google Earth on Ubuntu?  It's acting flakely as hell here.02:59
dmsuperm1nPelo: I haven't change a single thing on this install except for the xorg.conf03:00
bazhangdougsko: so I should be last person to ask ;]03:00
rbildmsuperm1n: your original should get u to a gui, no?03:00
Pelodmsuperm1n, we can spend hours ( we already have I beleive) trying to hunt down the current problem or you can take 30 min to clean install and we do it correctly from there,  I do not have hours to spend hunting remotely03:00
neftydougsko: thanks for your help, I think I got it installed;  and no, I don't plan on using a different kernel any time soon... heh gotta take things one step at a time  :P03:00
Pelonor do I care to03:00
kravlinbazhang: the one asnwer i got told me to put pci=nommconf into grub.lst. how would that help exactly? Grub doesn't recognize it.03:01
dougskonefty: cool, glad you got it worked out03:01
Pelodmsuperm1n, sorry if I sound harsh but this is where we are at03:01
dmsuperm1nPelo: alright03:01

Nithirssi + screen03:02
rbildmsuperm1n: I don't agree with Pelo's assessment. if only xorg is scrwing up now, don't see why a reinstall of the whole os is necessary. but do whatever feels right for you03:02

RyanPriorWhen I right click and left click at the same time, it middle clicks. Is there a way to disable that behaviour?03:03
bazhangAscii: just straight xchat not xchat-gnome03:03
Pelorbil, xorg is screwed and we just reconfigured it , now he gets x working but the rest of the desktop doesn't load , so he ,s stuck ,  clean install is simpler03:03

Starnestommy!envy | wapko03:16
ubotuwapko: envy is an unsupported tool to install newer versions of binary video drivers than provided by the official repositories. Use at your own risk, and remember that the latest version is not necessarily the "best". See « /msg ubotu binarydriver »03:16
Elv1313ppibburr: how do i do that?03:16
Peloir2, linux is case sensitive ,  meaning capital letters count03:16
wapkocauses problems i presume03:16
bazhangwapko: newer users will have trouble recovering from a kernel upgrade for one; and we generaly dont like third party scripts here as we have to help fix the damage03:17
RyanPriorir2: Tab-completion helps a lot to get your filenames right. Type in the beginning of the file name then type tab and, if you typed the beginning right, the command line will guess what you are typing and fill it in for you.03:17

Alan_Mmacogw, actually thats only partially true :)03:24
ubuntumacogw: i don't like gksu. i say it out loud, in my head, and it sounds like an angry japanese guy03:24
geniiwapko: gksu will let you run it as any arbitrary user if you specify. Defaults to root. gksudo runs it as your own user with temporary elevated privelege03:24

Alan_Mryanprior has it totally correct :)03:24

marx2klet's see...03:58
wobbiebobbiehey guys I m going to close this window thanks very very much  I just put a bunch of my grandson pictures on there ( can you say BACKUP) lol03:58
dmsuperman_Pelo: normal crt03:58

RavenkinJust updated to Ubuntu 8.04 beta and I lost sound, any suggestions?03:58
BogaurdI have a drive which has 2 partitions of zero size... extended partitions /dev/sda3 & /dev/sda4. If i delete these with sfdisk, will the otherr partitions (/dev/sda5 etc) take their places?03:58
bazhangdmsuperman_: is that the max allowed?03:58
nickrud#ubuntu+1 is handling hardy questions until release,  /j #ubuntu+1 Ravenkin03:58
dmsuperman_bazhang i think it can do 1280 x 1024 but that's too small for me to see03:59
Ravenkinnickrud thanks03:59
marx2kWhat I hate about this also is that since X keeps going into failsafe mode, my Xorg log doesnt tell me what the issue is03:59
Pelodmsuperman_, are you sure that rez is a proper ratio ?03:59
dmsuperman_Pelo: Yes, I use it all the time on these monitors03:59
dmsuperman_Pelo: They've been running 1152 x 864 for years, it's a 4:3 normal ratio03:59
nickrudBogaurd yes, the partitions will get re-identified, that's why ubuntu is using UUID's in /etc/fstab and at least trying in grub03:59
Zimmy2hello, question regarding the gparted contained within the installer03:59
dmsuperman_it's something like 10 or 15% larger than 1024 x 76803:59
Bogaurdnickrud, okay, cool. that's what I wanted :)04:00
Pelodmsuperman_, k I don'T know abouthat one I'm afraid,  maybe you can try going down to 1024x768 for a test04:00
marx2kPelo: restricted driver installed. Restarting computer.04:00
Pelomarx2k, best of luck04:00
Zimmy2I don't know if I'm in the right channel, but I'm having a hard time resizing my Win32 partition on my SATA hard disk04:00
marx2kPelo: :)04:00
Zimmy2I need to keep this data, any help?04:00
dmsuperman_k, i have to logoff04:00
nickrudZimmy2 is this vista?04:00
dmsuperman_brb04:00
marx2kI am forever having issues with my NVidia cards04:00
bazhangZimmy2: with ubuntu?04:00
Daisuke_Idomarx2k, it could be worse, it could be ATI04:00
PeloZimmy2, boot windows defrag a couple of times to make sure it is all nice and neat then use the live cd to do it04:01
Zimmy2nickrud: no, with winxp, bazhang, ubuntu gusty04:01
marx2kDaisuke_Ido: Dont even joke about that  ;)\04:01
Daisuke_Idomarx2k, how did you install the drivers?04:01
marx2kAh damn! fsck kicked in due to 30 mounts... argh now I have to wait04:01
Pelomarx2k, nvidia aren't playing nice with the linux community04:01
* nickrud has noticed that ati seems to be having much fewer issues recently04:01
Zimmy2Pelo, I'll try that, but I should note to mention, a few days ago I did another instal on my laptop with the same issues04:01
dmsuperman_nope04:01
dmsuperman_logged off04:01
dmsuperman_and on04:01
dmsuperman_and i have dual monitor04:01
FloodBot1dmsuperman_: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.04:01
dmsuperman_but both screens are shifty04:01
Pelonickrud, amd/ati have discovered that linux is their freind04:01
marx2kDaisuke_Ido: Well I dont even remember anymore since Ive had the NVidia closed drivers on here, the legacy drivers, the glx-new as well as non-new on here so it's been kind of a mess04:02
bazhangalso amd is close to bankruptcy04:02
Pelodmsuperman_, but you have both monitors working now ?04:02
nickrudZimmy2 you really should get a backup somehow, if you're having problems with resizing. Safety first04:02
Daisuke_Idonickrud, even xgl improved a lot, i went to get desktop effects working on a friend's laptop, radeon mobility x1100, worked like a charm04:02
Alan_Mfsck is slow and boring marx2k, but, it serves a very good purpose :D04:02
marx2kPelo: Looks like it's still gone to low-graphics mode..04:02
nickrudPelo yeah, I didn't have very high hopes to begin with04:02
Daisuke_Idobazhang, you think completely opening the graphics architecture is a last ditch effort?04:02
dmsuperman_Pelo: both are on, but both do the shift thing. and both of them have refresh rates that are much higher than i usually use04:02
bazhangDaisuke_Ido: aye have to think so (sorry for offtopic)04:03
peepsaloti need to know what is causing all this hard drive activity on my computer04:03
dmsuperman_Pelo: And I can't select any other refresh rate. one has 87hz and the other has 75. I use 60hz normally04:03
Pelodmsuperman_, now you edit your xorg.conf and change the refresh rate,  the value is horiz sync I belive04:03
* nickrud goes off to watch jon stewart, bbl04:03
Pelodmsuperman_, make sure you get the corect one s, back upyoru xorg fist04:03
marx2kPelo: When it goes into Low-graphics failsafe mode, which log files should I check? Because Xorg.0.log does not show any errors04:03
Pelomarx2k,   now open synaptic ,   search for nvidia settings04:04
marx2knvidia-settings is installed04:04
Pelomarx2k, start ti and change the rez then04:04
TerrorBiteI have a question about gpm04:04
marx2kXorg.0.log.old mentions that it Failed to initialize the GLX module04:04
Daisuke_Idognomes per minute?04:04
Pelomarx2k, why do you say it is in safe mode, does it say safe mode anywhere ?04:04
TerrorBiteI can move the mouse on the virtual console, but can't click anything04:05
Pelomarx2k,  I think nvidia needs aiglx or smeting  that bit confuses me04:05
marx2kPelo: "Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode"04:05
TerrorBiteDaisuke_Ido: it's the mouse emulator for virtual terminals04:05
bkovacsWhat is the best application to use in Ubuntu to do borderless printing.04:05
dmsuperman_Pelo: I have 2 monitor sections. One says Section "monitor" # and the other says Section "Monitor". The one with the hash comes last04:05
Pelomarx2k, check the restricted driver thign again04:05
Pelomarx2k, it is possibly that you will need the binairy driver ,04:05
Daisuke_Idohmm...  never toyed with it.  would make aptitude a joy to use though04:06
marx2kI have the most current binary driver downloaded from NVidia. Should I try installing it do you think?04:06
Pelodmsuperman_, the one with the # is probably the second monitor,  the other one being the first monitor you had on when you started04:06
Pelomarx2k, yes04:06
dmsuperman_alright, both have:Horizsync30-7004:06
dmsuperman_Vertrefresh50-18004:06
marx2kPelo: Ok, trying04:06
dmsuperman_Should I just change that to Horizsync 60 ?04:06
dmsuperman_and leave the Vertrefresh alone?04:06
xzi11awill there ever be an upgrade plan for ubuntu 6.06 lts that doesnt involve going through 6.10, for example, going directly to 8.04 LTS ?04:07
Zeltayes04:07
Zeltathere is04:07
bazhangyes xzi11a04:07
Pelodmsuperman_, it's usualy the horizsync one tha tneeds changing , match them to the h value at the back of hte monitors,   usualy you make sure that the higher end of the range is just above or at the value of the monitor lable04:07
Pelodmsuperman_, if you get me04:07
dmsuperman_are you sure it's not Vertrefresh that is the refresh rate? because right now the refreshes are 75hz, which is outside the given range 30-7004:07
danuelhi all.  I need some help!04:07
Peloxzi11a, you will be able to upgrade to 8.04 directly ,04:07

Zeltaxzi11a: Once 8.04 comes out in the final release I believe it'll let you do it as an update04:08
dmsuperman_Pelo: alright, restarting xserver then04:08
Peloxzi11a, wait until the 24th ,  the new lts comes out you'll be able to upgrade then04:08
danuelHow do I make ubuntu look like Mac!  Silly, but I have a friend I'm trying to convince to switch!04:08

dmsuperman_Pelo: Alright, but do you have a clue about why it shifts around?04:10
marx2kBasically... how do I start anew and try installing nvidia-glx-new again?04:11
Pelodmsuperman_, ok at this point I'm gonna send you to the forum,  don't post search ,   try other keywords then shift , the dualhead might be an issue if your single monitor didn'T do that before04:11

SitUbuntuSit*him05:05
prakritiis there a script that will regen menu.lst?05:05
nickrudSitUbuntuSit I saw that, he might have missed it: pidgin doesn't highlight05:05
TooR4uusser, http://pastebin.ca/97920005:05
bidgetalthough the reason it might not have worked was cause I didnt have gecko although wine said it would install it automatically05:05
bidgetI'll try it again05:05

CK_MYhow to convert all movie file to dvd ?05:05
Juzzy`bidget run wine iexplore.exe05:05
usserTooR4u, no these are no good, they are standard05:05
SitUbuntuSitnickrud, oh, wow, I don't know how people use a chat, or even terminal, for IRC when it's crazy like this.05:05
bidgetJuzzy`: ok05:05
Juzzy`it'll open up ie and it'll force install of gecko05:05
bidgetJuzzy`: ok cool05:06
TooR4uusser, Hmmm ..05:06
usserTooR4u, are you sure u added medibuntu repository? what ubuntu u running gutsy?05:06
bidgetah yes it is installing now05:06
Juzzy`steam probably can't run without gecko cause it uses it for the browsing window05:06
Juzzy`which is the first page to open iirc05:06
bidgetah I see05:06
bidgetwell I got the tahoma.ttf thing but I guess I neglected the gecko05:07
TooR4uusser, not yet ..I haven't added that .. Because i have already installed ffmpeg .. (now i will)05:07
Juzzy`yeah05:07
Juzzy`bidget that guide has it all05:07
b4l74z4rhow do i delete old kernels in synaptic, do i search for image, headers or modules?05:07
CK_MYany good convertor from any file type to dvd ?05:07
mm /links05:07
nickrudb4l74z4r all :)05:07
usserTooR4u, should have done that first cause standard ffmpeg doesnt have mp3 encoding05:07
QuintinWhat is best image format to use for qemu ?05:07
TooR4uohhh ..05:08
Joe3b4l74: yeah just search linux headers in synaptic05:08
nickrudb4l74z4r at the very least, image-2.6.xx-xx and the matching modules, and you might as well clear the headers as well05:08
Juzzy`wtf 13:38:00 * FloodBot1 sets mode: +e speme!i=94e99f3a@gateway/web/ajax/mibbit.com/x-96f3c2f7e080b50805:08
b4l74z4rnickrud: are those 3 all of the kernel related stuff i should delete or are there more?05:08
nickrudb4l74z4r lets see:  image, headers, restricted-modules, module-backport iirc05:09
b4l74z4ris there any function to automatically remove all that?05:09
MrKeunerhi, can I log vino connections(any attempts) somehow?05:09
=== Ash908 is now known as Ashfire908
Joe3b4: not that I know of, I have thought that someone should make it though ;)05:10
nickrudb4l74z4r just double checked:  headers image restricted-modules backports-modules ubuntu-modules are the kernel packages I have05:10
bidgetok here's a question05:10
bidgetif I move the .wine folder05:10
bidgetwill wine still work?05:11
usserbidget, yes it will recreate .wine05:11
nickrudbidget no, wine expects to find that folder05:11
Joe3bidget: from my understanding it should ;)05:11
b4l74z4rnickrud: ok, thanks alot05:11
bidgetcrap05:11
bidgetso is that a yes or no hahaha05:11
TooR4uusser, Now i have added that repository05:11
neo2nixAre the iptables for ubuntu pre-configured for the highest security?05:11
Joe3haha try it and if it doesn't, copy it back ;)05:11
Fydabidget: Hmm, I'd have thought that some files to do with the wine registry would be stored there?05:11
RandocalThis might be completely the wrong place to ask this... but here we go anyways =) If I hook a HDMI/DVI cable up between my Ubuntu machine (has an ATI X1600 pro in it) and my 50" plasma, will the video card properly detect the resolution that my plasma is capable of and offer me the full setting in my screen resolutions settings?05:11
harriseldonbidget: there is an environment variable called WINEPREFIX where you can override the location of .wine05:11
littlepinkdotNo one in #apache is helping me so wondering if anyone here has experience with it. I just clean compiled Apache2.2.8 and when going to the server ip/fqdn I get a Access Denied, the error log shows: (13)Permission denied: /home/ron-apache/.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess  file, ensure it is readable05:11
Joe3there is no registry in linux05:11
nickrudbidget your previous wine install won't work, but will create a new blank one05:11
usserbidget, well its going to "create" a new windows "installation" if it doesnt find one05:11
bidgetwell basically here's my problem... I made my home partition like 15gb and my system partition like 35gb cause I thought that I would be installing applications and things into the system partition05:12
damo23Randocal: no harm in trying is there?05:12
usserTooR4u, yea now do sudo apt-get install ffmpeg lame05:12
bidgetbut now I find out that everything installs to my home directory, and it isnt quite big enough05:12
TooR4uusser, okey05:12
Fydalittlepinkdot: Check the file permission?05:12
Joe3bidget: use gparted to make it a little bigger05:12
nickrudbidget did you see the line from harriseldon above?05:12
bidgetharriseldon: thank you!05:12
Juzzy`Yeah you can change the wine dir in options iirc05:12
Randocaldamo23: I don't own a dvi/hdmi converting cable yet.... was hoping to dig up some answers before dishing out the cash05:12
Randocal=)05:12
nickrudharriseldon nice plagarized nick, by the way ;)05:12
usserbidget, alternatively you can create a directory in /opt called say windows05:12
bidgetah ok05:13
Juzzy`bidget or you can symlink :P05:13
harriseldonnickrud: I think my spelling is wrong, or so I have been told05:13
damo23Randocal: you might have to hack your xorg.conf to get the right res, but i dont see why it wouldnt work05:13
nickrudone two many r's I think05:13
bidgetso where is this WINEPREFIX variable?05:13
usserbidget, change owner of it to youreslf and create a symbolic link from .wine to /opt/windows05:13
Juzzy`yeah then you can put your wine dir wherever you want05:13
bidgetusser: thats kinda complicated and Im a noob I think I will try the wineprefix and just move the .wine folder into / or something05:13
usserbidget, resizing would more complex05:13
usserbidget, ok here goes05:14
Juzzy`symlinks are easy, hell i figured it out :P05:14
usserbidget, sudo su05:14
RandocalI"m pretty newbish..... when you say "hack my xorg.conf" are you actually meaning "create a modeline"?05:14
usser bidget, mkdir /opt/windows05:14
bidgetwell Im not going to bother resizing Im just going to move the .wine folder and tell wine where it is05:14
AgentHeXwhy?  WHY?  WHY GOD WHY?  *cries*05:14
bidgetok05:14
damo23Randocal: adding WxH to the options05:14
bidgetjust a question05:14
nickrudusser next time, suggest sudo -i (stays within the ubuntu security policy, and preferred here)05:14
bidgetwhat is opt?05:14
usserbidget, chown -R <yourusername>:<yourusername> /opt/windows05:14
ussernickrud, ops my bad05:15
usserbidget, then exit05:15
bidgetk hold on you're getting ahead of me lol05:15
bidget1 sec05:15
trianjarhai05:15
usserbidget, cd ~05:15
harriseldonbidget: opt is a folder usually designed for binary only packages. It is just a naming convention and could be any location05:15
usserbidget, ln -s /opt/windows05:15
usserbidget, mv windows .wine05:15
irqpbroadcom irq ihttp://rafb.net/p/Ue2IcG21.html ssue05:15
b4l74z4rnickrud: is there a search string that all the kernel related stuff have in common so that i can easily find all the stuff that should be removed?05:15
usserbidget, err before mv windows .wine make sure u renamed/moved existing .wine05:16
bidgetah ok05:16
usserbidget, take your time05:16
bidgetumm whoa whoa05:16
irqphttp://rafb.net/p/Ue2IcG21.html i am having lockups with this wifi bcm43xx on hp dv8000z05:16
Quintinnickrud: sudo -i ?05:16
bidgetwell the whole point of me moving the .wine folder is because I am running out of space on my home partition05:16
nickrudb4l74z4r yes, the kernel version number, like  dpkg -l | grep 2.6.22 | grep ^ii  will show all installed stuff related to kernel version 2.6.2205:16
bidgetso usser could I not just move the .wine folder into my system partition and then tell wine where to find it?05:16
usserbidget, thats what we're basically doing05:17
bidgetusser oh ok05:17
bidgetusser hahaha05:17
usserbidget, its the simplest way to do really05:17
bidgetusser ok so I've changed the ownership05:17
b4l74z4rnickrud: thanks again05:17
bidgetusser: so now I have to move my .wine folder? or something?05:17
usserbidget, wait now05:17
usserbidget, yea05:17
TooR4uusser, i have uninstalled the current version of ffmpeg & lame packages ... and reinstalled them .. but giving same error ( I have observed that there is no change in dpkg -l | grep ffmpeg)05:17
bidgetusser: ok so where should I move it to then? and should I exit steam before I move it05:18
usserbidget, so cp -R ~/.wine/* /opt/windows05:18
m0zoneis there a way to populate the gnome menu with all installed programs aka kappfinder   i googled for last 15 mins not found a thing05:18
usserbidget, yes you should close steam05:18
bidgetusser: ok one sec...05:18
usserTooR4u, hm strange did u do sudo apt-get update after adding a repo?05:18
trianjarhai05:18
TooR4uusser, oops .. sorry i forgot that05:19
bidgetok its copying05:19
nickrudm0zone you can install the packages  menu menu-xdg  and you will have a new menu folder, debian. Shows just about every little toy you got05:19
bidgetya know the more I use linux the better it seems to get05:19
usserbidget, nice, so after its done just do rm -rf ~/.wine and triple check the command before you enter it05:20
bidgethey now Ive seen this rm -rf before05:20
usserbidget, thats how it works not only that you'll learn more about computers in general05:20
Fydabidget: Be quite sure that everything has been copied05:20
shane_trouble displaying the bottom of the screen in Firfox05:20
nickrudbidget in context it's a safe command, just type it exactly ;)05:20
shane_any fixex, other reports?05:20
bidgetehh ok05:20
bidgetah I see05:20
bidgetits rm -rf / thats the dangerous one right05:21
bidgetbut we're doing ~./wine05:21
nickrudbidget yes, and a lot of other places05:21
usserdidymo, precisely :P05:21
shane_Toshiba Satelite05:21
shane_Satellite05:21
shane_A3005:21
bidgetok so question before I delete the .wine folder05:21
Fydabidget: basically, "rm -rf foo" translates to "remove foo, all subdirectories in it, and don't prompt before deleting protected files among these files"05:21
usserTooR4u, ok so sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ffmpeg05:21
bidgetusser: I went to /opt05:22
bidgetusser: and there is just a windows folder in there... shouldn't the .wine folder be there?05:22
usserbidget, aha05:22
=== _CaNeS is now known as CaNeS
bidget?05:22
usserbidget, no you copied the contents of .wine to windows open windows it should look exactly like insides of your .wine05:23
nickrud bidget try ls -a /opt , you'll probably see .wine05:23
bidgetohh ok05:23
Fydabidget: No, because the command he told you to use was "cp -R ~/.wine/* /opt/windows" -- that means everything under .wine was copied over under /opt/windows.05:23
bidgetusser: yeah its in there never mind05:23
bidgetyeah I get it now05:23
usserbidget, kk cool05:23
bidgetfor some reason I was thinking it would copy the entire folder not just the contents05:23
usserbidget, one last thing cd ~05:23
SitUbuntuSit!menureset05:23
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about menureset - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi05:23

bidgetright05:23
SitUbuntuSit!menu05:24
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about menu - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi05:24
usserbidget, and mv ~/windows ~/.wine05:24
SitUbuntuSit!gnome-panel05:24
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about gnome-panel - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi05:24
usserbidget, navigate to ~/.wine it should have all the same files as before but now they are located in /opt/windows05:24
bidgetoh but I deleted .wine05:25
nickrudbidget mv in this case works like rename05:25
bidgetI see ok05:26
bidgetbut wait a sec05:26
bidgetagh Im confused05:26
bidgetohhhhhh!!! I GET IT05:26
bidgetLOL05:26
usserbtw how do you create a named link?05:26
FloodBot1bidget: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.05:26
nickrudusser   ln -s target destination , like  ln -s /opt/windows ~/.wine05:26
TooR4uusser, Hmmm ... sorry dude . same error ..I think this is the problem (W: GPG error: http://packages.medibuntu.org gutsy Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 2EBC26B60C5A278)05:26
TooR4uerror while updating ...05:27
ussernickrud, oh that works huh05:27
bidgetso what I did was made a link (which is actually a folder) and then just renamed the folder05:27
usserTooR4u, make sure you did that command wget -q http://packages.medibuntu.org/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update05:27
harriseldonbidget: yes, ln is like a windows shortcut on steroids05:27
bidgetharriseldon: yep! :D thanks everyone05:28
b4l74z4rshould i also remove old restricted modules that shows up when i search for "2.6.24"?05:28
usserbidget, no problem05:28
orange_how can i let things automaticly start with ubuntu after login ?05:29
hti_prohas anyone recompiled a kernel for ubuntu05:29
usserTooR4u, so how is it?05:29
dmsupermanguys, where are the mysql databse file stored at?05:29
Alan_Mb4l74z4r, wouldnt hurt i dont think05:29
harriseldonorange_ what type of things? desktop things or command line things?05:29
titin#aceh05:30
orange_desktop05:30
orange_terminal things not jet05:30
harriseldonorange_ put them in ~/.bashrc05:30
dmsupermandoes anybody know where the mysql db files are located?05:31
bidgetok so one last question before I find something new to ask questions about05:31
bidgetI start steam from a terminal window, but once steam has started, is it ok to close the terminal?05:31
bidgetor will that close the whole thing05:31
usserbidget, no this will close the whole thing05:31
harriseldonorange_ .bashrc is run for both graphical and command line sessions05:31
bidgetoh hmm05:31
Fydabidget: what's the command you use in terminal to start steam?05:31
harriseldonorange_ if you want it to startup even if you are not logged in, you can use a cron job05:31
usserbidget, put & at the end of the command this detaches it from terminal05:31
bidgetwine steam.exe05:31
titinhii05:32
Fydabidget: you could probably add an ampersand to the end (&) and that'd background it05:32
dmsupermannoooobody knows where mysql db files are located?05:32
bidgetgotcha05:32
levanderbidget: Stuff like that, just try it and see.05:32
bidgetwell eventually I will just make a script so I can have like a quicklaunch shortcut type deal, I can do that, right?05:32
orange_thnx harriseldon05:32
harriseldonorange_ yw05:32
hti_probidget: is this a steam server or client05:32
bidgetclient05:32
Fydabidget: Yes, and if you're launching it with a launcher icon instead of in a terminal, you wouldn't really need the &05:33
levanderusser: & doesn't detach things from the terminal, it just puts them in the backgroup, nohup detaches things from the terminal05:33
donkey7186Im having a problem someone please help me!!! how do i tell what type of model my screen is? i have  laptop!!!!!05:33
bidgetit depends on the brand of laptop donkey05:33
rootlinuxusrshouldn't05:33
usserlevander, oh... yea. Remember hearing about nohup, my bad05:33
bidgetit shouldn't??05:33
hti_prodonkey7186: disassemble the display, even with the model number of the laptop it could vary greatly05:34
rootlinuxusreither go through the system settings or type ...crap what's the command05:34
rootlinuxusrthere's a way05:34
rootlinuxusrwhat kind of laptop do you have?05:34
donkey7186how do i disassemble the display???05:34
hti_prodonkey7186: their will be mfg. info on the back of the display05:34
rootlinuxusrscrewdriver.05:34
donkey7186hti_pro05:34
levanderusser: and, xtoolwait does something similar for gui applications that nohup does for processes that don't have a gui05:34
hti_prodonkey7186: there are usually screws underneath the little rubber bumpers05:34
TooR4uusser, http://pastebin.ca/97921605:35
Alan_Mguys, lets not go into disassembling, that gets scary for a new user.....i have no other suggestions though..so...uh..yeah05:35
donkey7186hti_pro this is the problem. i put a external monitor on and then it messed everything up when i took it off05:35
TooR4uusser, I did like what u said05:35
rootlinuxusrwhat's your make/model and we can google around?05:35
Alan_Mrootlinuxusr, good choice :)05:35
Fydadonkey7186: Can you describe what you mean by "messed up everything"?05:36
rootlinuxusrCaptain Google, he's our hero, gonna take Windows users down to zero?05:36
hti_prodonkey7186: have you tried the Fn+F4 key...  I think that is the combo, it should have a pic of a display on the F4 key05:36
usserTooR4u, the command is ok its your ffmpeg that is messed up, its not medibuntu version so it doesnt have mp3 support05:36
donkey7186fyda when i restart it shows a pixelated screen05:36
hti_prodonkey7186: that should allow you to switch between crt and lcd05:36
usserTooR4u, enter this command wget -q http://packages.medibuntu.org/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update05:36
usserTooR4u, and sudo apt-get install ffmpeg lame05:37
donkey7186hti_pro mine is f7 and it doesnt work for some reason05:37
b4l74z4rok, i chose to completely remove an old image and synaptic automatically highlighted some other stuff for removal, is it safe to select complete removal for the stuff synaptic selected for removal?05:37
usserTooR4u, after that dpkg -l | grep ffmpeg and pastebin it05:37
hti_prodonkey7168: the screen is pixelated during the text part of bootup05:37
donkey7186fyda and also it says i cannot use any visual styles ( such as cube and all (compiz))05:37
Fydadonkey7186: "pixellated" meaning, the resolution is smaller than the actual physical resolution of the LCD panel, so it looks big and blocky?05:38
* Alan_M sits down backwards in my chair scratching my head looking at donkey718605:38
usserTooR4u, oh and -ab is specified in thousands so -ab 128000 or in your case -ab 32000005:38
Alan_Mi fix computers for a living, and im stumped :/05:38
donkey7186fyda no it has like a part black screen and part has green and white. and it has small boxes05:38
trianjar#mojokerto05:38
HaitianMidnightdoes anyone know if there is any progress being made with ATI Drivers, xserver, and Opengl flickering problem05:38
TooR4uusser, ohh 1min05:38
hti_prodonkey7168: have you tried reconnecting the crt and try rebooting??  and if so does the crt still work05:39
bidgetI made a script for running steam, is it possible to change the icon to like the steam icon or something?05:39
neur0nso it's been a while since ive used compiz. last time i did it was still beryl. i just installed linux with compiz..howcome my windows dont have shadows now? =[05:39
Alan_Mdonkey7186, let me get this right, your trying to dual screen your box?05:39
Fydabidget: you made a script file, and then a launcher icon? you could look at the launcher icon's properties (right-click, then edit Properties) and click on the current icon in the dialog that appears.05:40
=== Cromag_ is now known as Cromag
bidgetFyda: I didnt make a launcher icon or anything I just made the .sh file05:40
Fydabidget: Oh, well, .sh files don't have icons05:40
TooR4uusser, same error  after updating and changing the bitrate:( (http://pastebin.ca/979219)05:40
bidgetoh05:40
Fydabidget: but launchers do :P05:40
bidgetFyda: how do I make a launcher then haha05:40

=== dede is now known as ce_virgo
Fydabidget: well, you could make one on the desktop; right-click, add a launcher...05:41

donkey7186alan_m no im now just trying to fix my problem i had a dual screen. i took it off to take the laptop to school and now it has a wierd screen come on, my computer now doesnt let me use any visual effects either05:41
usserTooR4u, aarrg i see whats the problem05:41
Alan_Moh, ok sorry donkey7186 was just trying to figure things out from the beginning.05:41
bidgetok so how do I tell the launcher to cd to .wine and then wine steam.exe?05:41
TooR4uusser, Hmm .. :(05:42
utarpradeshhow do i link my currently playing song to my away message in pidgin?05:42
harriseldondonkey7186: do you have an nvidia card? did you use nvidia-settings to configure the multiple monitors?05:42
utarpradeshlike itunes does to the osx chat program05:42
Fydautarpradesh: There's probably a plugin for Pidgin that would do this; Google would know.05:42
usserTooR4u, ffmpeg was using old standard libraries update them05:42
bidgetlol05:43
bidgetgoogle would know...05:43
usserTooR4u, sudo apt-get install libavcodec1d libavformat1d libavutil1d libpostproc1d libswscale1d05:43
donkey7186harriseldon i have an intel graphics thing05:43
Fydabidget: You'd be surprised how much Google knows  and how much it's willing to share ;)05:43
usserTooR4u, that is strange it should've pulled them automatically05:43
Alan_Mdonkey7186, can we try doing something like restarting xserver to see if that helps out?05:43
donkey7186xserver?05:43
usserTooR4u, but oh well do that command above and u should be set05:43
TooR4uusser, yahh05:43
donkey7186alan_m xserver?05:43
HaitianMidnightis there a workaround that would allow me to use compiz, and opengl apps without flickering05:44
Alan_Mdonkey7186, its the X windows system server, its basically what runs everything you see.05:44
b4l74z4rwhat exactly is header files?05:44
TooR4uokey ..05:44
donkey7186how do i restart it05:44
trollboyanyone here in SoCal?05:45
TooR4uusser, Hee .. workingggggggggggggg dude05:45
usserTooR4u, hows it looking?05:45
StroganoffHaitianMidnight, have you tried DefaultDepth 16?05:45
utarpradeshi can't find the plugin05:45
harriseldondonkey7186: You can use ctrl-alt-backspace to restart x. Last resort is always sudo dpkg-reconfigure xorg-xserver That will completely replace the xorg.conf file.05:45
TooR4uusser, thaks dude05:45
Alan_Mharriseldon, thanks again. heh05:45
donkey7186what will it do if i did that?05:45
TooR4uusser, u r awsome ...05:45
usserTooR4u, nice so there you go, btw you may wanna look at parameters of input stream in your case bitrate of movies sound was 12805:45
node357isn't that xserver-xorg ?05:45
usserTooR4u, so theres no reason to set output to 320 its not gonna make a difference05:46
Alan_Mdonkey, hopefully give you something to work with, like...maybe a desktop ;)05:46
donkey7186harriseldon what will that do? will it erase anything on my hard drive05:46
usserTooR4u, i do what i can :)05:46

HaitianMidnightexactly how do you change the depth of xserver05:48
TooR4uusser, can i do private chat?05:48
Alan_Mwow, guys were throwing 5 different things at donkey, im getting confused also.05:48
usserTooR4u, im not registered create a channel i'll join05:48
donkey7186hti_pro its when i logon and when i try to run effects it doesnt work05:48
Alan_Mcan someone at least show him something right without giving 4 options, but only 1? thanks :)05:48
harriseldondonkey7186: you can do it from a terminal or use the run dialog in Gnome: alt-f2 and type sudo nautilus05:48
Fydadonkey7186: Ctrl+Alt+Backspace is a shortcut to kill the currently running X server. Usually it will also automatically restart. Of course you should make sure you don't have unsaved data before doing this.05:48
hti_prodonkey7168: i would recommend booting with the livecd, and copy the Xorg.conf file from the running livecd to the /etc/X11 on the hard drive and try rebooting.  That should give you a good config05:49
TooR4uusser, /join #ubuntu-ap05:49
Alan_Mdonkey7186, sorry man, im trying not to confuse you...thats getting hard with all the options here heh05:49
harriseldonhti_pro: that's a good idea05:49
Stroganoffcharles|64: sudo pwmconfig05:50
Fydadonkey7186: "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xorg-server", as harriseldon told you, would re-do the configuration process for the X server, and in the process it would overwrite your /etc/X11/xorg.conf, so you might want to make a backup of that file before running it.05:50
StevenXHello guys. Can anyone point me to the best make-ubuntu-look-like-osx howto?05:50

bidgetyeah sure I'll open a terminal05:54
bidgeteverything is working fine its just I have no borders anymore05:54

litiushey guys, did anybody upgraded their Ubuntu to "the next release" with keeping Beryl on it (not new Compiz), any issues?05:55

bidgetok05:55
hti_probidget: as someone mentioned earlier that only backgrounds the process05:56
bidgetah there we go05:56
bidgetthat fixed it05:56
Alan_Mlitius, thats kinda OffTopic and a hardy discussion, so..yeah05:56
bidgetuh oh I closed the terminal and the borders disappeared again05:56
hti_probidget: did you use compiz --replace or nautilus05:56
prathibhaI get a problem in volume control. "No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found." This is the message I got when I clicked the volume control icon.05:56
litiuswhy is it offtopic05:56

prathibhaCan anyone help me to solve this problem05:56
rootlinuxusrit means your sound device isn't being found05:57

usserbidget, but anyway do that compiz --replace in terminal06:00
Alan_Mno need to get the users all freaked out, nothing big, daily thing in here pretty much hehe06:00
bidgetwell I had to reboot so its fixed now06:00
usserbidget, after its up try ALT+F206:00
bidgetbut I somehow managed to exit gnome and go to a command line06:00
bidgetso I had to log in again, then I tried startx but it told me that it was already running or something06:00
usserbidget, probably pressed CTRL+f2 maybe?06:00
StevenXwhere in Ubuntu do I go to install a .emerald theme?06:00
bidgetyeah probably06:00
bidgetso I just hit ctrl+alt+del and restarted haha06:01
hti_probidget: thats exactly what i was gonna recommend06:01
Fydausser: to elaborate: backgrounding a process means if you enter "exit", it'll auto-disown the process before closing the terminal. But if you close the terminal by clicking the Close button, that would still kill the process.06:01
bidgetyeah06:01
bidgetwell it worked anyway hahaha06:01
usserbidget, linux has 8 or so virtual consoles that u can switch between using CTRL+F# in ubuntu CTRL+f7 brings back your x server06:01
bidgetoh ok cool06:01
bidgetuh oh06:01
bidgetsteam had a fatal error06:01
Alan_Mgreat, bots down :/06:02
hti_prousser bidget: but if you are in X you have to hit ctrl+alt+Fn06:02
usserFyda, why does it matter how u close the terminal if the process is in the background?06:02
hti_probidget: are you running steam client or server06:02
bidgetwhat is Fn?06:02
Fydausser: Because backgrounding != disowning, they are 2 separate concepts06:02

Stroganoffbidget Fn means F1-F1206:02
bidgetah ok06:02
hti_probidget: f1,f2,f3.....06:03
bidgetyep06:03
Fydausser: and it's just a property of the bash shell that it auto-disowns on exit; if you use another shell, such as zsh, then typing "exit" without disowning a running process would give you a warning about unfinished jobs.06:03
Alan_Morudie, i believe its rn originalfile newfilename06:03
hti_probidget: does it run well, I have not had alot of luck performance wise with wine06:03
usserFyda, hm... hm i never had faced a problem like that and i just did compiz --replace & and it didnt go into background for some reason probably why it terminated when terminal is closed06:03
Alan_Mnot RM...but RN06:03

tonyyarussoAlan_M: nah, that'll give you some false positives.  You want /quote chanserv access #ubuntu list.06:25
bidgetso would I have to go into permissions on it or something to make it executable?06:25
bidgetor...?06:25
braydon619 when trying to install the aMSN backports i gives me a error: dependency is not satisfiable: tcl8.506:25
tonyyarussobidget: yes, you will likely need to edit the permissions.06:25
bidgetand also when I make the launcher do I want to say application or application in terminal?06:25
Netham45tonyyarusso, /msg chanserv access #ubuntu list works too. ;)06:25

Alan_M..at least not anymore, i got a CoC that can get slammed at me.06:26
MikeisadumbnameThe fact that I can see which networks exist leads me to believe it's not a driver problem.06:26
usseranother_life, what about them? :)06:26
Netham45tonyyarusso, lol.06:26
bidgettonyyarusso: do I want my launcher to be application or application in terminal?06:26
usseranother_life, you'll need some sort of stickers or a map next to your keyboard06:26

bidgettonyyarusso: well I have a script that opens up steam06:26
usseranother_life, i just memorized russian layout :P06:27

FliesLikeABrick_Stroganoff FYI I think the way that package might have gotten in such a bad state was an NFS share holding APT data got disconnected at some point during a package upgrade/install or something.  It has been months since I was last messing with this machine07:07

bidgetno Stroganoff that didnt work either07:12
Stroganoffjefffromhell: in nautilus: ctrl+l -> smb:///07:12
Stroganoffbidget have you used the "show all icons" drop down menu in the launcher editor?07:13
bidgetummm07:13
Stroganoffbidget: another way would be to edit the launcher with gedit or some text editor and set the "Icon=" just to "filename.png" (path shouldnt be needed)07:13
bidgetwhere exactly is the show all icons thing?07:14
Stroganoffshould be at the top of the window07:14
Stroganoffmaybe i'm confusing it with xfce, dunno07:14

saladdin19hey, this is prob a silly question, but i am having trouble compiling a simple C program, gcc is telling me that it can't find the stdio, i mean come on!, is there something that needs to be installed so that i can compile normally?07:21
jefffromhellstroganoff, i put that ip in and no luck07:22
Stroganoffbidget have you manually edited the launcher with gedit?07:22

Stroganoffjefffromhell: is the firewall service running in windows (it has to be for sharing to work) start -> run -> services.msc07:23
travisatsaladdin19: did you include stdio?07:23
Stroganoffbidget: use the console: gedit filename.desktop (use [TAB] for auto-completion)07:23
saladdin19travisat, yup, #include <stdio.h>07:23
Stroganoffor use gedit -> File -> Open ....07:23
travisatsaladdin19: hmm weird07:24
jefffromhellstroganoff, its off as far as i remember, but it worked before i had ubuntu on here, and as i said, last night it worked07:24
bidgetStroganoff: gotcha07:24
Stroganoffjefffromhell i dont mean "Firewall" in the control panel but the raw service07:24
saladdin19travisat, ur tellin me, but is there something special i need to do, im just you know typin gcc foo.c -o foo07:25

MizzleBecause it sees the connection, I assume it's not a driver issue.  Is that right?07:30
bidgetwizo: I'm using the 64-bit version and apparently adobe doesnt have a 64 bit flash player or something07:30
wizobidget: i'm sorry to hear that :(07:30

MizzleI had the same problem on KDE, and nothing to fix it.07:33
jefffromhellstroganoff, how do i find the subnet on ubuntu07:33

saladdin19Slart, your my savior man, installing essential did the trick...are there any other builds i should include, i will be doing some socket programming, or does this include the standard Unix C/C++ libraries?07:56

SorbPhehe ok so if i ype mount /media/usb/drive it shold do it07:58
StroganoffSorbP you have to create the mountpoint first: sudo mkdir /media/usbdrive07:58
SorbPkk07:58
Stroganoffthe usb drive should be /dev/sda1 or something07:58
SorbPi have one of those07:58
Slartsaladdin19: the build-essential thingy sets up the compiling basics.. you'll probably need some dev-packages later on.. but you'll notice when things don't work =)07:58
SorbPi tought it was the harddrive but it might be the usb07:58
StroganoffSorbP could be sdb1, sdc1 etc..07:59
SlartSorbP: you can check what kind of block devices you have by running "sudo blkid" in a terminal.. you'll see the device name and file system07:59
SlartSorbP: ls /dev/disk/by-uuid also works07:59
SorbPit says that sda1 is ext208:00

ubotuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » or use the "gmountiso" package - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.08:05

Slartsjovan, cptcirss: I think the -t iso9600 part isn't really necessary.. i've never had to use it at least.. I think mount does some auto-fs-checking before mounting..08:08
