wesolekOdd-rationale, did I mention that my wireless card is on pcmcia?00:01
Picizoidberg: I'm not sure what to tell you then. You could always try forwarding the mailer daemon message to webmaster@canonical.com00:01
* nickrud has to learn to type faster00:01

wesolekOdd-rationale, it will take me a long time to retype it in pastebin00:01
dmsupermanIs there a way to have both vertically and horizontally spanning virtual desktops?00:02
wesolekOdd-rationale, and I guess you need to run soon00:02
Odd-rationalewesolek: copy+paste00:02
wesolekOdd-rationale, ubuntu isn't on-line yet00:02
wesolekthat's what I'm trying to do00:02
nickrudwesolek can't you wire it up? That will make your life much easier00:02
dmsupermanso I can have essentially 4 virtual workspaces? 2 by 2?00:03
nickrudwesolek just for the config stuff, seriously.00:03
Odd-rationalewesolek: oh. ok. how many interfaces showed up? and what were there names? lo, eth0, etc.?00:03
mrpocketssomeone wanna give me a hand with installing icecast from source00:03
thedonvaughndmsuperman: if you are running compiz, you can sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager and add your desktops there.  If you are not running compiz, you should be able to right click on gnome's pager and change the desktops there as well.00:03
Odd-rationalewesolek: ?00:04
dmsupermanthedonvaughn, I am, but when I change both horizontal virtual size and vertical virtual size to 2, it resets the virtual to 1 or the horizontal to 1, so it will only let me have one of them be higher than 100:04
Danish989hi everyone00:04
jdsbluedevlhi, does anyone know how to concatenate rar files that all have extention .rar rather than .r01, .ro2, etc.?00:04
wesolekOdd-rationale, eth0, etho:avan, lo, vmnet1, vmnet8, wifi0, wlan0 and wlan0:ava00:04
Danish989here's an installation question:  I just resized one of my hard disks and now there's free space and I want to install ubuntu on that. Which installation method do I have to choose?00:05
thedonvaughndmsuperman: wierd.  I run compiz, also in debian at the moment.  Works fine for me.00:05
Odd-rationalewesolek: is this a laptop or desktop?00:05
Draconicusnickrud: Ignoring the extras, how's this look? http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/63120/00:05
wesolekOdd-rationale, both wlan0 and wifi0 have the same mac address00:05
MrStitchhow do I tell irc that I don't want to see the joins and leaves from a channel?00:05
thedonvaughndmsuperman: you running compiz?00:05
MeatGrinderMrStitch, depends on your client00:05
wesolekOdd-rationale - laptop, but like a desktop00:05
thedonvaughnMrStitch: depends on the client00:05
wesolekodd-rationale, poor mobility with this old laptop00:05
dmsupermanthedonvaughn, yeah. figured it out, i had to up the number of desktops. wonder why they would make you manually input a number that would be derived from the other 2 settings :S00:05
MeatGrinderjdsbluedevl, did you try opening one?00:05
=== oren is now known as owen1
thedonvaughndmsuperman: cool00:06
MrStitchthedonvaughn: I'm using Gaim... came with Ubuntu00:06
jdsbluedevlMeatGrinder: nvm, apparently unrar e "first file" concatenates them all00:07
Odd-rationalewesolek: so all you have is the command line and you want to connect to the internet through your wireless?00:07
MeatGrinderjdsbluedevl, yup :)00:07
dmsupermanthedonvaughn, I've got dual monitor, and now a 2 by 2 grid of workspaces. That's 8 virtual monitors. I'm sure it'll be easy to lose windows now :P00:07
MeatGrinderjdsbluedevl, rars can be annoying like that00:07
Draconicusnickrud: I know it's just fine, but I thought I'd give you a treat and show you a nice, clean sources.list for a change00:08
Odd-rationalewesolek: could you describe your situation again?00:08
dmsupermanthedonvaughn, do you know if it's possible to set a delay on switching viewports when putting my mouse to the edge? like, I want it so if my mouse just brushes the edge for a quick second it won't switch viewports, i have to hold it there for half a second or something00:08

RobC269i got gpartition thing working..I found out the problem - the NTFS partition had "inconsistencies" and needed chkdisk run on Windows to fix it..which is broken -.- ..I have no problem accessing and mounting it on Slax, so I'm kinda puzzled as to why Ubuntu is giving me this error :/00:08
Draconicusnickrud: Huh. Can I put universe and multiverse on bugfixes? Do they even count for that repo?00:08
mic21I connect my computer to a server using sftp (with "connect to server" in ubuntu 8.04) and I don't have the permissions to download files and even for write but I can browse it ... it's very strange because if I connect with ssh in a terminal it's ok ...00:09
wesolekOdd-rationale, I've got the graphic interface... I mean everything worked fine till august last year, when I stopped using it. meanwhile I changed my wireless security from WEP to WPA and when I turned my ubunto on today (for the first time since aug) it didn't connect. So I tried to fix it and ended up messing up my interface file really bad00:09
thedonvaughndmsuperman: honestly not sure on that.  would be useful i suppose tho00:09
thedonvaughnSaint`Dia: www.ubuntu.com will tell you that.00:09
Danish989here's an installation question:  I just resized one of my hard disks and now there's free space and I want to install ubuntu on that. Which installation method do I have to choose?00:09
ScottONanskiHas anyone heard of a program called Magicpart, or something similar? It's a an ISO for partitioning hdd's,00:09
DraconicusScottONanski: Partition magic?00:10
Alex6692Hi, when i press Mercury Messenger, Which i have just installed, It wont load it, does anyone have any ideas?00:10

wesolekodd-rationale, I even tried to connect to a non-secured network and nothing00:10
Danish989if I use guided installation, wont that just install ubuntu on my primary hard disk? where windows is currently installed? I want to install ubuntu on the free space on my other hard disk00:10
thedonvaughnDanish989: what do you mean method?  desktop, server, and alternative?00:10

thenetduckI am having a problem loading firefox. I can run : /usr/bin/firefox/./firefox and it will run fine, but I can't seem to get it to run when I just type "firefox" in the terminal, which I need so my links run properly. How can I fix this?00:10
thedonvaughnDanish989: oh i'd use manual.  give yourself a swap 2x your ram and you should be good.00:10
thedonvaughni forget the options ubuntu has00:11
thedonvaughnDanish989: i suppose guided with available free space would be safe if that's an option, i forget.00:11
Danish989do I have to choose space for the swap partition manually?00:11
Alex6692Hi, when i press Mercury Messenger, Which i have just installed, It wont load it, does anyone have any ideas?00:11
ScottONanskiAh, it's called Parted Magic. :)00:11
thedonvaughnDanish989: yes.  manual you do the partitioning yourself.00:11
dmsupermanyeah, at least with vertical workspaces, because i have a habit of "slamming' my cursor at the top or bottom of the window to access the taskbar or close/minimize buttons00:11
magicrobotmonkeydoes anyone use hulu.com with hardy and the flashplugin-nonfree thats in the repo?00:11
Danish989scottonanski: why dont you just use Gparted already in ubuntu?00:11
Odd-rationalewesolek: try removing all other lines in your interfaces file except the followings: http://paste.stgraber.org/240700:11
Danish989thedonvaughn: I have to create a partition on the free space, right?00:12
wesolekodd-rationale, I just installed wpa_supplicant and tried to do it this way, no luck, the terminal is hanging now00:12
ScottONanskiDanish>> This is a way better program, but I need to part from boot cd.00:12
MeatGrinderDanish989, you can boot the livecd and use gpartition00:12
thedonvaughnDanish989: correct.  you'll need a swap and a root (/) a minimum.00:12
Alex6692Hi, when i press Mercury Messenger, Which i have just installed, It wont load it, does anyone have any ideas?00:12

ij_kaufmanhi all.  i've never used any linux OS before, and what i'm actually hoping to do is not so much use it, but install it for the purpose of donating two old computers with a clean, fresh OS free of all the junk that i accumulated over the years.  in addition, i'm hoping/expecting for all data/files to be wiped off the box.  would that be the case?  is there a way to install ubuntu in such a way that it just reformats everythi00:12
ij_kaufmanlready gotten everything off of both boxes that I need, so wiping it clean will not delete anything i need to get back.00:12
wesolekodd-rationale, ok, and then what?00:13
Odd-rationalewesolek: restart your networking.00:13
kee9260hello.  am looking for some help for a know-nothing i know who is not me, but is trying to get going with linux puppy00:13
MrStitchirssi or xchat..... which one would be fairly easy for a newb to grasp00:13
thedonvaughnij_kaufman: if you just install over your windows partitions on your hdd, you'll accomplish just that.00:13
ScottONanskiParted Magic is an awesome program. I was very impressed with it the first time.00:13

Danish989what is the difference between a primary partition and a logical partition?00:26
dmsupermanachandrashekar, for me that switches vertically between my workspaces. I have a 2x2 grid of them00:26
Danish989should I choose primary or logical? location for the new partition: beginning or end? and what about mount point?00:26
achandrashekardmsuperman: you'll need to switch it to four desktops with compiz if you wish it to rotate..00:27
reya276achandrashekar: take a look http://www.pastebin.org/2956400:27
magnetronDanish989: it's only possible to boot from a primary partition00:27
FlashbackA primary partition is the first four partitions. After that, logical must be used. It's a hold over for the way things have always been done. Use either, it doesn't matter.00:27
dmsupermanachandrashekar, no no. that's not what i meant. I want to be able to alt + tab between windows, and have it show _all_ the windows on _all_ the workspaces00:27
dmsupermanachandrashekar, so when I select a window on another workspace, it will automatically switch to that window in that workspace00:27
Danish989if I want to have the boot option between xp and ubuntu, I should use primary partition then?00:28
FlashbackAnyone here at all watching tv on their workstation? Something in a digital card perhaps?00:28
Danish989and what goes in the ''mount point'' ?00:28
achandrashekardmsuperman: ive been able to do that..(or so from what i understand that you are asking) with the ctrl-alt-down arrow key00:28
dmsupermanachandrashekar, all the ctrl + alt + down keys do it switch to other workspaces00:29
Alex6691It says i have to install it though Terminal, so what do i type in terminal because sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre didnt work.00:29
ubotupastebin is a service to post multiple-lined texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic)00:29
wesolekodd-rationale, no luck again00:29
thedonvaughnDanish989: mount point is where you mount the partition.  For root you put "/".  for swap it won't have one.   Btw I'd just choose logical.  And you can boot from logical.00:29
dmsupermanachandrashekar, I want to switch between window focus. the normal way of doing that is alt + tab00:29
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about xawtv4 - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi00:29

achandrashekarreya276: do you see anything there that shows the drive has been mounted?00:31
MrStitchthedonvaugn: Is that because it's written in a different language?00:31
reya276achandrashekar: the drive is being read by the system, but form some reason it does not allows me to access it, so I can't mounted or it does not auto mount the drive so therefor I can't access it.00:31
wesolekodd-rationale, but when I click on it, I don't even have an option for wpa, only wep00:31
Alex6691: It says i have to install it though Terminal, so what do i type in terminal because sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre didnt work.00:31
gerroMrStitch: if you use wine or windows virtualized it still can get viruses, and it is prone to them if you dualboot with windows00:31
thedonvaughnMrStitch: nope because it's compiled for a different platform.  Usually it's a windows .exe executable.  That means nothing to linux.00:31
TheMusicGuyhello, I know that RhythmBox uses Gstreamer for its audio support, but I can't find any gstreamer plugins for tracked music formats...(still looking though)...does anyone know of a way to get RhythmBox to play these formats, such as XM, MOD, S3M, IT, etc. ?00:31
gerroMrStitch: virtualized as on the windows part00:31
thedonvaughnMrStitch: gerro is right.. I suppose you could run a windows virus using wine (wine is a windows emulator which does run windows .exe executables)00:32
wesolekodd-rationale, the only place I can see wap option is when I want to create a new network, but that (after putting all the appropirate info) doesn't work either00:32

=== Morales is now known as FelipeMorales
dmsupermanMrStitch, generally, linux distros are exempt from viruses because A: it's written to be a more secure OS. Windows users generally want it to "just work", and by enabling things to "just work" a lot of things become automated, allowing viruses to slip by.00:32
mannytuI think the Sun has updated their JRE....00:32
achandrashekarreya276: are you first sudo su ?00:32
MrStitchSo.... right now when I boot up my computer, I have the option to choose winblows or Ubuntu... in this scenario, you're saying my computer is still technically a p.o.s.?00:32
dmsupermanMrStitch, and B: because there are _far_ more windows users than linux users, so it's just more profitable for hackers/spammers to go after the windows base00:33
achandrashekarreya276: then im wondering if you have to create an entry in fstab for the device00:33
Alex6691: It says i have to install it though Terminal, so what do i type in terminal because sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre didnt work.00:33
cheesypieceshi, any idea why i can't start the login settings manager? it starts to start up but then nothing happens00:33
dmsupermanMrStitch, Plus, linux users are more likely to know a lot more about what's going on in their system than windows users, so hackers and spammers generally don't bother00:33
gerroMrStitch: it would have to be one huge exploit for it to somehow write to the ext3 partition if your windows side gets jacked00:33
achandrashekarreya276: i ran into this a bit a go...and i had to do a google search to mount a device .00:33
reya276achandrashekar: yes I am00:34
NasraI have question for someone nice .....00:34
NasraI have a question what do I put/write on the syntax part when using pastebin?00:34
dmsupermangerro: or if you're like one of the many people who dual boot, windows will be able toe write to the ext3 partition using a driver you would install for just that purpose00:34
MrStitchI see... so, since Ubuntu is on it's own partition, then there is no problem?00:34
Odd-rationalewesolek: well, i'm out of ideas. sorry. I coundn't help more...00:34
achandrashekarreya276: i remember creating a directory in /media ...then I had to create an entry in fstab....then went about mounting from that point on.00:34
water_fouli've been able to tune my hdtv card with mplayer but i wanted to do it with kaffeine, can someone help me?00:34
gerrodmsuperman: exactly but you can use different file systems so that complicates the matter00:34
Danish989location for the new partition: beginning or end?00:34
dmsupermanMrStitch, unless you're allowed windows to see/write to the ubuntu partition, then booting into windows is very unlikely to touch your ubuntu partition in any way00:34
gerroMrStitch: pretty much none, just hope if windows goes down it don't take ubuntu with it00:35
reya276right but how do you mount it00:35
water_foulkaffeine wont scan for channels but is there a way i can use a channels.conf file?00:35

MrStitchGerro - ROFL.... isn't that the case ALL the time... taking everything with it..hahahha00:35

achandrashekarreya276: like this ---in fstab -> /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 vfat defaults 0 000:36

MrStitchNot sure if my winblows can see the linux part... haven't checked that out yet. However, I see that Ubuntu does have access to the windows partition.... I've already grabbed all my MP3's00:37
thedonvaughnAlex6691: heh i told you that about 10 minutes ago. ;)00:37
wesolekodd-rationale, where it says: connect via command line in the WPA Connection - WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK section00:37
dmsupermanAlex6691, no problem. after you update your lists, run the install java command again and you should be good to go00:37
Danish989thedonvaughn: what is ''location for new partition'' ?? should I choose begining or end?00:37
thedonvaughnDanish989: beginning00:37
dmsupermanthedonvaughn, it's a proven fact that people in irc channels either don't hear or just don't listen :P00:37

dmsupermanachandrashekar, that's the fstab entry, i think he's trying to do the commandline00:37

Danish989thedonvaughn: thanks a lot!00:38
achandrashekarreya276: then i think you still need to create the directory in /media no?00:38

dmsupermanreya276, that comments out the line, so it's ignored :P00:40
Odd-rationalewesolek: in that line. there should be no space after -D and -i e.g. -ieth100:40
dmsupermanreya276, then run "sudo umount -a && mount -a" and it'll re-read the fstab00:41

dmsupermanohnoesmilk, it's usually pretty self-explanatory. if not, then google your paricular wifi card + "ubuntu" and you will usually get a good guide00:46
Julolidine If anyone is a networking expert, I have kind of a bizarre problem.  After a restart, my wireless network card stopped "scanning" and can't see any networks anymore.00:46
dmsupermanohnoesmilk, a lot of wifi cards work out-of-box, and you just have to go into the networks panel and enable / configure them as usual00:46

dmsupermanbut instead of defaults, it should be "defaults,umask=0000" or _something_ like that. i don't think it's umask, but it's something like that00:49
dmsupermananybody else remember what it is?00:49
imaginativeoneup til now...samba !@#$ing sucks00:49
yaccLake: the only thing that will be slowing you down is potentially your disc subsystem.00:49
magicrobotmonkeyimaginativeone: if you right click on a folder, is ther ea sharing options option?00:49
MrStitchThen, right after that, it keeps giving all kinds of other error messages.... odd tho, cause I thought I told it to install to the scsi drives, but it's trying for the ata drive?00:50
imaginativeonein windows?00:50
yaccLake: On the hardware you describe it's probably some old slow PATA setup.00:50
Lakeyacc: what do you mean by 'disc subsystem' ?00:50
reya276yes it was umask07700:50
Lakeyacc: oh yes it is !00:50
magicrobotmonkeyimaginativeone: no, in ubuntu00:50
dmsupermanreya276, make it 000, umask is the reverse of ubuntu perms00:50
yaccLake: Basically, you should verify that you have at least DMA support for your IDE controller/disc.00:50
dmsupermanreya276, the numbers are what operations to disallow00:50
Lakeyacc: so it's not the cpu itself, it's the PATA00:50
dmsupermanreya276, i'm almost 100% sure at least00:50
yaccLake: hdparm should tell you tht.00:50
magicrobotmonkeyimaginativeone: but if you have a shared folder in windows and its on the same network as ubuntu, you should be able to browse to it00:51
achandrashekarbattle for wesnoth!...lol00:51
yaccLake: IDE/ATA comes in a number of levels of "hellness".00:51
imaginativeonemagicrobotmonkey: where do I look for that?00:51
Lakeyacc: less is better ?00:51
reya276dmsuperman: ok it used to have umask=07700:51
dmsupermanreya276, yeah, it should be either umask=0007 or umask=0000, depending on how you want it.00:52
dmsupermanreya276, but 0007 should be fine for local users00:52
dmsupermanreya276, then once you edit it, remount the drives00:52
reya276dmsuperman: ah ok then00:52
yaccLake: well, run hdparm -d /dev/hda <= that will tell if your hardware at least uses DMA.00:52

BizMan2008hey guys im trying to vnc through ssh,(from putty to my linux box), i have no problem on other machines iwth the same setup, but on my one machine in particular, i cant connect through vnc, it tells me connection initialized and then it stops01:15
dmsupermanlittlepinkdot, that will redirect all requests to a folder to index.php?args=WHATEVER01:15
BizMan2008ive narrowed it down to it being something with my ssh, putty settings are ok and so are vnc01:15
BizMan2008but what in ssh would cause me not to connect01:16
dmsupermanyourhost.com/ASDF/CHEESE will load index.php?args=ASDF/CHEESE01:16

Shadow420dmsuperman so until then this for people who have computers with a floppy drive01:17
littlepinkdotdmsuperman, after making a script utilizing cURL to download files directly to the server01:17
Pelods_, are youusing a bridge modem or a router/modem ? with two comps connecetd to it ?01:17
Pelods_, put my nick in the same line as the rest01:17
dmsupermanShadow420, well for that purpose it works :D01:18
Pelods_, basicaly the command I gave you was for a bridge modem , ei one that only does the connecting and can only have one comp on it.01:18
ds_Pelo It's a centurytel modem with a USB output as well as an ether port...this comp is using Ether, his is connected to the USB01:18
MrStitchScunizi, is this why every time I try to access the system in Ubuntu, it asks for a password? I mean... as part of the protection?01:19
ScuniziMrStitch, yes..01:19
ds_How do I install USB drivers with CD?01:19
Pelods_, ah,  not sure how that works, I think it's a bridge modem and you can'T realy have two comps on it at once,  even if therer are technicaly two connectors,  you'll need a router01:19
MrStitcharg... same error again: ata1: port failed to respond (30 secs, Status 0xd0)01:20
Pelods_, try looking up the modem's model in the forum www.ubuntuforums.org01:20
ds_Pelo it shoudl work...This comp is dual boot Kubuntu/XP, his was XP...it worked well when I was either and his was XP...so if my comp can work - How can he install USB drivers if he has the CD01:21
MrStitchWell.... anyways. I can't seem to get the same error I had before, but I'll monkey with it when I get back. My girls wanna go for a walk... gotta do the 'dad' thing, ya know. ;)01:21
ds_Pelo I forgot how to 'run' a CD for it's drivers01:21
Pelods_, does his cd have drivers for linux on it ?01:21
dmsupermanMrStitch, psh, tell them to go get on the internet and learn more about ubuntu01:22
Lokii-i just triboot setup a xp/vista/kubuntu01:22
MrStitchgood idea... they'll probably fix it before I will01:22
Lakeyacc: well thanks anyways then ! even with DMA, I am pretty sure that the combination of 550MHz along with PATA connection as well as the fact that it's streaming over a cheap 40$ D-link router helps the slow speed01:22
* PzyBorG wonders if anyone knows how to generate a /var/lib/alsa/asound.state file with the ubuntu live cd.01:22

boumacould someone tell me the package for the workspaces switcher. i want to just update this package to hopefully fix a drawing bug, where it looks like its only counting to n-1 instead of n, and drawing the mini workspaces in half of the allocated space01:54

boumathe gnome workspaces switcher01:54

Pelobouma, its part of gnome pannel , I don'T think it there is an idividual packge for it01:55
raviimaginativeone: they will be ignored01:55
shulmanLeGreffi3R: g++ might be a good thing to try as well.01:55
raviimaginativeone: in windows, if you're trying to access files from Ubuntu in Windows01:55
ravias a general note, I must say that sharing an NTFS drive between Ubuntu and Windows is much better as ntfs-3g driver is in much better shape than the ext2fs driver for Windows01:56

Pelobouma, check in synaptic, there might be a package for panel aps,02:00

dmsupermanimaginativeone, was this to share between linux and windows on the same pc?02:00

bruenigI think the assumption is if you are using gui, you are not interested in such confusing things as features02:16
dmsupermanscottyL, Javascript is in the Apache portion. It serves up HTML pages, which can include JavaScript and CSS02:16
ShpookscottyL: That I knew, but someone else suggested it to me. I figured that since the browser is what parses JS, then it should work locally.02:16
Peloreya276, I think there is away to blacklist it so it doesn't get readded when you boot again ,  check in the manpage for modprobe02:16
imrookHas anyone used MythTV's nuvexport?02:16

MrStitchi see02:21
dmsupermanMrStitch, It's hard to get a windows program running in ubuntu to begin with, but as the programs get larger and larger and more and more complicated, the less likely they are to run in wine02:22

bruenigfirstohit: it is certainly possible that you will have problems, the discrete release model has systemic problems with moving between releases due to the jump. You could have incompatible library versions, you could have other problems. There is no way to safeguard.02:35
firstohitOk will this is April isn't time to upgrade. Will there be a smother upgrade soon, should I wait or do it now?02:35
bruenighas nothing to do with "beta" has to do with the clumsy model02:35

Jack_Sparrowcharles|64_, did you burn the iso as a single file or as a disk image02:36

Pelobruenig, be nice02:37
dmsupermanPelo, it's why I still haven't upgraded my windows box to vista, nor will I with XP being continued until beyond release of Windows 702:38
bruenigfirstohit: look, the problem is with the model. Discrete releases will always be dangerous. Some will tell you not to take to hit and destruction and let others do it, but even then, the model is always sketchy. Whether you do it now or later, discrete release is discrete release, so I would just go for it especially if there is something in the new release that you can't access.02:38

My dialshit stops me from downloading it, and my dad used the live instead of the install cds on my mousetrap car (unlike my requests) so im screwed. Please help me see 5.10 again for a day.03:18
dmsupermanDanish989, not entirely sure03:18
dmsupermanDanish989, Oh yeah, duh03:18
dmsupermanDanish989, Alright, from bootup here's what you do03:18
Pelocharles|64, is it ok now ? maybe the /dev/scd0 is not the good devtree for your dvd player03:18
fishstwange: what about my bootloader? I am using the BL that i believe is used by Ubuntu, because when i installed fedora 8 i had a blue screen bootloader and after installing Ubuntu i got a black screen and now Fedora is Under "Other Operating Systems" in the loader menu03:18
dmsupermanDanish989, Hit escape after it boots. That will give you the list of OSes03:18
Lifeisfunnywhen a beta version is put out, are there updates posted for it ?03:18
dmsupermanDanish989, From there, highlight the first one, and hit "e"03:18

charles|64Pelo: not sure i commented that line out to get it to boot03:18
fishstwange: I will check that03:19
birge-localOrbixx: now, open the file (using sudo) with your favorite editor and look to see if you can find a section called "Screen"03:19

Some_Persongogeta: i know, but thats not the point03:20

Danish989dmsuperman, so what I do is hit escape so it gives me the list of OSes .. from there, press ''e'' so it opens up that grub thingy .. and then over there, I can just use my keyboard to change the value of 2 into other numbers, and try them all out until ubuntu finally decides to boot?03:20
PeloSome_Person, you can download it from the servers on the www.ubuntu.com site03:20

dmsupermanbiabia, no problem03:22
stwange_evilbug, you said from vista to ubuntu?03:22
birge-localbut of course use whatever resolution it is you're trying to add.03:22

evilbugstwange_- thanks!03:23
stwange_stwange_, no you shouldn't have issues, although check the license when you buy it - I've heard that some acer laptops encrypt the bios so you can only access it if vista is installed03:23
firstohitdmsuperman hey I am back but I have some problem03:23
stwange_sorry, evilbug, not stwange_ - see above :)03:23
usserSaint`Dia, firestarter is pretty good03:23
MrStitchdmsuperman, been asking questions and not the faintest reply... hahahaha03:23
dmsupermanMrStitch, I'm pretty sure away only changes your status, it shouldn't affect your ability to message03:23
Danish989dmsuperman, I'm going to try that out now, thanks a lot .. I'll be back in a bit with either good news or bad news03:24
dmsupermanfirstohit, what happened?03:24
dmsupermanDanish989, alright03:24
Orbixx|MobHow do i logout without ing the interface.03:24
firstohitdmsuperman resolution is missed up and when I run nvidia-settings I get error You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.03:24
Saint`Diausser: I'm using firestarter, but it does'nt seem very interactive, you would think, this being linux, it would have an awesome firewall with port options and the works.03:24
MrStitchdmsuperman, ok then... it's just me. ;)03:24
dmsupermanMrStitch, messaging "???" probably isn't a good way to see if people can see your text haha03:24
Some_Personpelo: who would i contact?03:24
Orbixx|MobThe current resolution is bigger than my monitor, and i can't see the right side of the desktop.03:24
birge-localOrbixx: you can't. :-( welcome to the fun of using a graphical user interface developed in the 1980s.03:24
amenadoSaint`Dia-> interactive? you want a firewall tool to be interactive?03:24
dmsupermanfirstohit, "sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg-bak/xorg.conf"03:25
PeloSome_Person, isnT there some customer service or some general information email ?03:25
xiaocaohow to remove the package03:25
usserSaint`Dia, but its linux and it does have an awesome firewall - iptables its just nobody bothers to write a nice gui for it03:25
dmsupermanfirstohit, "sudo nvidia-xconfig"03:25
Saint`Diaamenado: Yeah, something like some of the programs that windows has.03:25
dmsupermanfirstohit, "sudo nvidia-settings"03:25
dmsupermanfirstohit, and if it still gives you an error, reboot and try again03:25
Some_Personpelo: not that i know of03:25
usserSaint`Dia, just how customizable u want the firewall to be03:25
birge-localOrbixx: when you go to the display setting control panel, it doesn't offer a smaller resolution?03:25
xiaocaoplease tell me03:25
MrStitchdmsuperman, good point. Say, do you know anything about open office? I just tried to open a 2007 excel spreadsheet file and my whole open office software is messed up... scrambled. Reboot, or do I re-install the open office?03:25
FructoseDoes Ubuntu have any software packages that do the same thing as DBAN (without having to boot from them)?03:26
amenadoSaint`Dia-> im not sure how much interactivity you would like...can you not use command line? or that is too challenging for you?03:26
CJS3141If I open a media file by right-clicking on the file and choosing "open with MediaInfo" (I added it to the menu), it opens MediaInfo but not the file: the executable path is: /usr/bin/mediainfo_gui %f. So which %variable should I be using to make it work?03:26
Pelousser, iptable is not a firewall it's the cli userspace for netfilter , netfilter is the firewall,  firestarter is just a gui for the same03:26
dmsupermanMrStitch, There are some problems with opening Office 2007 files in OO.o03:26
Orbixx|MobAh. I did it.03:26
dmsupermanMrStitch, I used to be a huge OO.o fan until 2007 of MS Office came out03:26
PeloSome_Person, didyou check the contact email on the ubuntu website ?03:26
usserSaint`Dia, try guarddog03:26
birge-localOrbixx: excellent. what did you end up doing?03:26
dmsupermanMrStitch, Office 2007 is the first good product they've put out03:26
Saint`Diausser: I should be able to filter port information, and I should be able to see IP's connecting to my PC in realtime. It is not that command line is challenging, but will all the awesome gui options, you'd think that something as significant as a firewall would have it's share of programs.03:27
dmsupermanMrStitch, So I just run a VM of windows XP and use Office 2007 with that :P03:27
Some_Personpelo: they are in categories, and none fit my needs03:27
Orbixx|MobThere was another spot to logout on the gui i could see.03:27
PeloSome_Person, show03:27
PeloSome_Person, let me have a look03:27
Orbixx|MobXorg  to have hung.03:27
FructoseDoes Ubuntu have anything to securely delete partitions?03:27
Saint`Diawill = with^ in my last post.03:28
MrStitchdmsuperman, sounds like a good fix. However, the file is from a friend, and I don't personally have Office 2007. Maybe I should just reboot and see if it clears up?03:28
charles|64Pelo: not seeing it ill try a few other things thanks though03:28
birge-localdamn. i take it you have gotten the graphics card to work at that resolution when running another OS?03:28
firstohitdmsuperman still getting it, gott reoot03:28
amenadoSaint`Dia-> once you learned iptables, you can make rules to log or display each ip's connecting realtime03:28
firstohitdmsuperman be back03:28
aimchangersnitch: poo should support office 200703:29
Saint`Diaamenado: I guess I will study Iptables.03:29
PeloSome_Person, ask there mailto:info@shipit.ubuntu.com03:29
dmsupermanMrStitch, you could try that. Also, ask him to save it as a 97/2000 or 2003 format, and that will more than likely clear it up03:29

IdleOnePelo: how do I change ownership of a file in my home folder?03:35
ani1IdleOne: chown03:35

If a line goes out to column 400, and that line is currently being viewed, then the horizontal scrollbar gets longer. this is just a little stupid feature, don't worry about it03:35

h00k_cpk1: well, they modify it specifically to get certain games to work05:00
arunkaleHello all05:00
supriehello all05:00
arunkalehello suprie05:00
shadow420well as soon they have all of the popular games to work they will have them all working05:00
supriei have a problem with my wifi05:00
cpk1iirc crossover is geared more towards productivity applications while cedega is more game oriented05:00
supriesometime it doesn't caught any wifi signal05:01
h00k_I have CrossOver Office for productivity05:01
h00k_I like OneNote200305:01
Danish989dmsuperman, remember what you said about bios not getting it right and you had to take a guess at correctly fixing grub?05:01
suprieim using atheros chipset05:01
suprieand using ndiswrapper to make it worked05:01
Jordan_Usuprie, system -> administration -> restricted driver manager didn't work?05:02
supriesometimes it worked05:02
gideanhow do I kill pppoe?05:02
supriebut sometimes it didn't worked at all05:02
gideanneed to configure it but it says its already running05:03
nickrudgidean sudo poff should take it down05:03
jimlayh00k_, thanks. do you know how to list that at the cli? Where is nautilus getting thil list from?05:03
gideankill gives me "no process killed"05:03
nickrudgidean yeah, pon/poff is the way to start stop pppoe05:04
lindenleamyone have seamless mode working with virtualbox?05:04
LiMaOlindenle ➡ it works here. lemme double check once again05:05
shadow420pelo these are Dell Computers what I have heard are the hardest ones to get a Dual Boot to work with Windows/linux05:05
Peloshadow420, why are you telilng me this ?05:05
dmsupermanshadow420, it doesn't really matter what brand the computer is05:06
patrickvashadow420, it's easy.05:06
patrickvaNot hard at all with Dell Computers.05:06
h00k_jimlay: It might be taking it from fstab, and maybe searching /media as well05:06
Pelodmsuperman, wereen't you talking about seamless in vbox yesterday ?05:06
dmsupermanshadow420, I've never heard of a Dell computer that doesn't allow you to change boot order, and that's really all you need so you can install ubuntu05:06
dmsupermanPelo, yeah, it's so awesome05:06
millertime_018hey, if i installed limewire on my linux and its not in the add/remove how do i get it off?05:06
Pelodmsuperman, let me introduce you to lindenle05:07
dmsupermanPelo, I still haven't rebooted since installing the closed source one, which should allow me to network guest and host OS05:07
geniimillertime_018: You installed how?05:07
PifferMost Dell computers support F12, which gives you the boot order list upon startup05:07
dmsupermanlindenle, I do05:07
gnychisdoes anyone know what version of madwifi is pre-installed with ubuntu?05:07
millertime_018from the internet. like downloaded it05:07
millertime_018from limewire.com05:07
h00k_Sometimes DELL used DELETE, F1, or F2 as well.05:07
shadow420dmsuperman thats one thing I will not do is change the boot order in bios05:07
Pelognychis, you'd have to look it up in synaptic , the package manager in the admin menu05:07
Pifferand I've not run into any Dell computers over the last...7-8 years that did not allow you to change boot order...05:07
dmsupermanshadow420, erm, any reason for that?05:08
lindenledmsuperman: I think I may have just figured it out05:08
h00k_Piffer: you are right - they all do.  They pretty much have to05:08
dmsupermanlindenle, all you have to do is go into the seamless button from the vbox window, tell it to download the iso, mount it to cd05:08
shadow420dmsuperman I am confused alittle05:08
h00k_bed.  back later.  Peace.05:08
Pelomillertime_018, you an remove it from synaptic in the admin menu05:08
dmsupermanlindenle, then inside windows vm, install it, reboot, and choose Seamless integration from the vbox window and it should work05:08
efirewickidleone, thanks, that was a lot of good info. not too much on how it works though, just mainly install notes...05:08
millertime_018how do i do that? system>...?05:08
CapaHI just mounted a new harddrive that is type ntfs --- I am surprised that simply right clicking it doesn't present a "format disk" option, so I am wondering wehre I go to find that05:08
shadow420dmsuperman well I am trying to get grub to boot from windows boot loader05:08
PifferYou have to go faaaaar back in time to find a BIOS that did not allow you to change that, and then you'll probably have a DIN keyboard plug as well :-) hehe05:09
kelvin911how to send custom smiley gif in pidgin?05:09
lindenledmsuperman: yes, how do i enable seamless with the VBManager?05:09
dmsupermanlindenle, it does force the windows taskbar overtop of your main taskbar, but I either just hide it or unlock it and move it to 1 side05:09
Pelomillertime_018, menu > system > admin > synaptic package manager,   use the search button, type limewire   it will show up in hte list ,  see the green button,  right lick  uninstall05:09
dmsupermanlindenle, from the vbox window with your guest OS, from the main menu, there's a button for Enable seamless mode05:09
htmljunkieso mack are you in here?05:09
PifferWe're WAY many people in this chan...1200 +    :-) Ubuntu rules05:09
dmsupermanlindenle, or something to that effect, it's in the first menu05:09
gidean/usr/bin/poff: No pppd is running.  None stopped. but when I run pppeoconf it says somethinf is already running?05:09
lindenledmsuperman: also it looks terrible ... I mean without the windows....05:09
CapaHWhere do you go to format a disk?05:10
nickrudgidean try sudo killall pppd05:10
dmsupermanmillertime_018 i suggest frostwire instead05:10
rullieCapaH, fdisk05:10
Danish989dpsuperman, help!05:10
dmsupermanlindenle, what do you mean?05:10
dmsupermanDanish989, what happened now?05:10
CapaHrullie: There is no simple gui way?05:10
gideanwill try ..05:10
CapaHI mean I can always use newfs etc but -- thought there was a simpler 'clickable' way05:10
nickrudgidean if that doesn't work, give the exact error message it gives05:11
lindenledmsuperman: I want to start it this way : VBoxVRDP -startvm "winXP"05:11
htmljunkiethere is a simple way05:11
htmljunkieuse a live cd05:11
shadow420dmsuperman when I try to load file ubuntu.bin or bootsect.lnx all I get is GRUB and frezzes05:11
htmljunkieif you want to reformat the drive05:11
djikjust a quick question: does hardy install from windows but onto an xfs partition?05:11
CapaHhtmljunkie: It is an external drive05:11
rullieCapaH, why do you assume having button means simpler?05:12
Robinsonhey, through SSH, can I send my ubuntu system into hibernation and then wake it up through ssh again?05:12
LSGdjik: Go to #Ubuntu+1 for question concerning Hardy05:12
CapaHrullie: I don't -- but I like to know the full featureset I have available with Ubuntu05:12
rullieRobinson, no05:12
nickrudRobinson if it's hibernating, it's not listening to anything05:12
dmsupermanlindenle, you mean start your vbox from the commandline? i'm not sure how, i usually just open vbox, start the os, then close the vbox window and turn on seamless05:12
dmsupermanshadow420, that's over my head, sorry05:13
PifferRobinson: Only via another system and WoL... which I guess spells 'No'  :-(05:13
rullieCapaH, with gnome, you mean :)05:13
shadow420dmsuperman and I used sudo dd if=/dev/sdb of=/home/username/Desktop/ubuntu.bin bs=512 count=105:13
CapaHyes with gnome05:13
CapaHcorrect :)05:13
RobinsonPiffer: no indeed, its an old old p3 system05:13
lindenledmsuperman: and what about it looking bad?05:13
gideanneed to run pppoeconf but when I do I get:  Sorry, I scanned 1 interface, but the Access             │05:13
gidean          │ Concentrator of your provider did not respond. Please    │05:13
gidean          │ check your network and modem cables. Another reason      │05:13
gidean          │ for the scan failure may also be another running pppoe   │05:13

=== bbuuzz is now known as buzzsaw
FloodBot3gidean: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.05:13
Robinsonem, is there a similar state to hibernation where fans are off and hd is off also ?05:13
boumarobbysmith, yeah true. i guess i just need a good image/guide to do the calibration with05:13
PifferWonder if you can setup a modem and do a wake on dial... but that would suck, cause who has phone lines these days? heh05:14
nickrudgidean ah,  if ps -A | grep  ppp doesn't come back with anything, then it's the first reason in the error message05:14
buzzsawi have tried https://help.ubuntu.com/6.06/ubuntu/serverguide/C/firewall-configuration.html many times over and i cant seem to get masquerading to work :-(05:14
shadow420dmsuperman do you have an Idea how I can get windows to boot grub?05:14
gideantrying to get my father online....over the phone... :(05:15
dmsupermanlindenle, it doesn't look bad to me. Of course, the XP windows don't match the ubuntu theme, but you could always patch your windows uxtheme.dll and find a similar theme05:15
gideanhe loves ubuntu....'cept right now :)05:15
eddyqwI'm looking for help with updating, I keep getting an error "bzip2: Data integrity error when decompressing." when I run 'apt-get update' (on the gutsy/main package, if that makes any difference)05:15
dmsupermanshadow420, no, i did it the other way05:15
geniigidean: Welcome to the wonderful world of IT support05:15
dmsupermanshadow420, i have grub boot windows05:15
hamedwhat means "cyber man"05:15
nickrudgidean you might find it easier to let the modem handle the connection, try pointing the browser at , 1.1, 0.254, 1.254 and see if you can configure the modem directly.05:15
lindenledmsuperman: looks like 8 colors to me...05:15
gideanLOL I'm IT lmao05:15
Peloshadow420, weren't you the one I fixed it for earlier?05:15
dmsupermangidean, just give up haha05:15
dmsupermanlindenle, even with seamless turned off?05:16
lee_Hello one and all05:16
shadow420dmsuperman I have went that way and windows gave me sh** fits about it05:16
dmsupermanshadow420, I just installed Ubuntu first, then installed windows, then re-wrote grub and chainloaded to windows XP05:16
shadow420pelo no I don't think so05:16
gideanconfigure the modem?05:16
dmsupermanPelo, there was another shadow but it was Shadow and then some numbers05:17
Robinsonsoooooo, no wannabe-hibernation state that still leaves which can awoken from ssh ?05:17
dmsupermanshadow420, that also lets me hibernate windows, since it goes to grub first and won't force me to resume my hibernation05:17
lindenledmsuperman: changed it back to 32 bit and it looks  ok05:17
DBautellmaybe look into wake on LAN, but I know nothing05:17
CapaHIf I want to format a disk to be useful in a variety of platforms such as Open/FreeBSD - Linux - etc -- what is the best format to use? ext3 ? ufs ?05:17
gideando what to the modem?05:17
Pelodmsuperman, ah, so many shadows05:17
dmsupermanlindenle, 16bit you mean? er, 24bit, one of the 205:17
dmsupermanPelo, heh, yeah05:17
lindenledmsuperman how do i move the taskbar?05:18
dmsupermanso, has anybody gotten the Kate tab bar extension to work?05:18
dmsupermanlindenle, right click the taskbar, disable Lock taskbar05:18
shadow420dmsuperman well I don't use hybernation and windows I use it more often than linux05:18
lindenledmsuperman:  did that now?05:18
dmsupermanlindenle, then just drag it somewhere else. I have dual monitor, so I like to just put it on the top of my right monitor, but i'm not sure what you'd like05:18
nickrudgidean yes, most pppoe modems can give you a dhcp addres.  Make sure the file /etc/network/interfaces has the two lines:   auto eth0  <newline> iface eth0 inet dhcp  , then run sudo ifup eth0 . then if you get an inet address in ifconfig , eth0 stanza, you can talk to the modem05:18
lindenlecan i put it on the left?05:19
eddyqwI'm looking for help with updating, I keep getting an error "bzip2: Data integrity error when decompressing." after it downloads the gutsy/main package (this is using 'apt-get update')05:19
dmsupermanshadow420, regardless, i find it easier just to install grub and chainload windows xp05:19
shadow420dmsuperman I use linux to play some games and other project05:19
arvind_khadriCapaH, i thik ufs05:19
gooodywhat is the recommended java IDE for ubuntu gutsy?05:19
mosnogooody: eclipse?05:19
dmsupermanespecially since windows xp is more likely to get reinstalled, so when i do that i can just re-fix grub. it's more of a pain to get windows bootloader reinstalled and booting to grub for me05:19
dmsupermanshadow420, I have switched to linux full-time now, windows is only for games and some windows only apps i need for work05:20
=== Weramasu is now known as Taco
=== Taco is now known as Tirams
shadow420dmsuperman well I am looking the other way so when windows does need to be reinstalled all I have to do is add the line to the bootloader then I get linux back05:21
SeaPhordmsuperman: what games do you play?05:21
Tiramsi have a ATI card and i've been forced to use Hardy Heron, but I want to switch to Gutsy.  Is there a way to repackage the ISO so that the proper graphics drivers are in the livecd?05:21
dmsupermanshadow420, I personally would find it easier to reinstall grub, all you have to do is run grub, root (hdX,Y), setup (hdX)05:21
dmsupermanshadow420, otherwise you have to re-find the ubuntu.bin file again don't you?05:21
dmsupermanSeaPhor, Assassin's Creed lately, UT3, COD4, Supreme Commander05:22
LiMaOdmsuperman ➡ get a playstation 2 and an xbox 360. then you will have one more reason to get rid of windows05:22
shadow420dmsuperman I keep a copy on my external HD05:22
cwall0868noob messing around w/AIGLX on a 64bit followed the walk through rebooted and was prompted system was crashing..... selected diff option and loaded fine any help?05:22
lindenledmsuperman: Can i make x-paste work with it?05:22
dmsupermanLiMaO, no, not a console fan. I don't care that windows is on my system, I just use ubuntu primarily. Plus, Supreme commander isn't on console :P05:23
shadow420which Windows/Ubuntu can read and write too05:23
dmsupermanlindenle, you man a clipboard that works between guest and host?05:23
SeaPhordmsuperman: was asking because most of the games i want to play actually play better in Ubuntu linux, Delta force, star Wars, City of Heroes, etx05:23
dmsupermanlindenle, it's just a normal option, i think it was even enabled by default05:24
buzzsawyou should try crossfire ;-)   fun linux baised game :-005:24
dmsupermanSeaPhor, yeh, the games i play are pretty demanding and i highly doubt they'll work too well in linux05:24
CapaHHow do I format as ufs ? there is no such thing as mkfs.ufs ?05:24
dmsupermanSeaPhor, Oh yeah, and Halo, Halo 2, and Crysis05:24
SeaPhordmsuperman: have you tried Cedega?05:24
dmsupermanSeaPhor, This machine was really built to game, but I use it as a heavy workstation for photoshop and cinema4d work too05:25
kelvin911cedega, wine, which one is good?05:25
dmsupermanSeaPhor, no, what genre is it?05:25
LiMaOdmsuperman ➡ the only game i've ever missed on windows is age of empires. oh man i used to love that05:25
Peddycan anyone tell me where the image file for the Volume icon that pops up when I hit the keyboard volume button is?05:25
dmsupermanLiMaO, I couldn't go without my Supreme Commander, that's the most epic of all epic RTS games05:25
SeaPhordmsuperman: Cedega is like Wine,,, only better, for latest games05:25
lindenledmsuperman: does not seem to work for me...05:26
gnychiswhat packages contains the madwifi modules in ubuntu? I can't determine it... it seems as though linux-restricted-modules contains ath_hal but not ath_pci for example05:26
cwall0868is xgl compiz worth the time it takes to set it up on 64bit?05:26
dmsupermanlindenle, I think there's an option for it somewhere. i don't have it open, and I can't open yet until I reboot so I can't look for you05:26
dmsupermanSeaPhor, _really_05:26
cwall0868or should i just say f it05:26
dmsupermanSeaPhor, Is there a compatibility list?05:27
kelvin911is cedega only for games?05:27
dmsupermanSeaPhor, I'd LOVE to at least get guitar hero working on ubuntu05:27
kelvin911what about windows app?05:27
dmsupermanthen I could survive without booting into windows for days at a time05:27
CapaHcwall0868: Compiz is pretty much worth it period :)05:27

cwall0868can u help me then05:27
kelvin911is guitar hero for the gays?05:27

LiMaOkelvin911 ➡ very well05:28
cwall0868thats all i needed to know05:28
kelvin911can i install winxp?05:28
CapaHIt allows you to create a virtual machine to run multiple OS simultaneously05:28
LiMaOkelvin911 ➡ sure you can05:28
kelvin911or can i just use the one already installed in c:\?05:28
dmsupermanLiMaO, it couldn't ever possibly measure up, the sheer automation and management skills require a keyboard05:28
dmsupermanHOLY CRAP05:28

dmsupermanSeaPhor, I love you, that list has Supreme Commander05:29
dmsupermanAND forged alliance05:29
dmsupermansadly, no guitar hero05:29
kelvin911LiMaO: can i run everything in virtual box if i have xp installed there?05:29
CapaHyou can but it would make no sense05:29
dmsupermankelvin911, everything but games05:29
CapaHjust run the stuff that you are forced to05:29
LiMaOkelvin911 ➡ well, virtualbox will not be able to run 3d games inside your xp installation05:30
cwall0868so why bother offering 64bit? you dont need to get to indepth05:30
CapaHLiMaO: Hmm are you sure?  I have heard otherwise05:30
kelvin911then there is no point installing it then05:30
kelvin911the only thing xp is there for me is game05:30
dmsupermanit definitely won't, CapaH05:30
CapaHkelvin911: What games?05:30
dmsupermankelvin911, then there's really no point05:30
CapaHeh do a dual boot then05:30
kelvin911winning eleven, PES405:30
kelvin911doom3, quake405:31
LiMaOkelvin911 ➡ as i said a few minutes ago, get a playstation 2 and an xbox 360. avoid the ps3. you will be much happier05:31
dmsupermanalright, don't want to be a total hypocrite but we should probably get back onto topic05:31
CapaHdoom3/quake4 will work I am quite sure in Wine -- check the list05:31
jwoah12I just edited some values in xorg.conf, how  do I reboot Xwin so I can see the changes, without rebooting the whole OS?05:31
kelvin911no money05:31
Robinsonwhat is the difference between sleep and hibernate ??05:31
dmsupermanthen again I really have no say in the matter, just sayin is all05:31
LiMaOkelvin911 ➡ doom 3 has a native linux version05:31
dmsupermanjwoah12, Ctrl + Alt + Backspace05:31
kernfreakLiMa0, whay not ps3.I love it05:31
dmsupermanjwoah12, and if that doesn't show the changes, then "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart"05:31
calcRobinson: sleep just puts the system into temporary low power mode, hibernate writes memory to disk and turns off entirely05:31
kelvin911i have doom3 and quake4 but the cdkey i got doesnt work in linux05:31
gideannot working...cant getinto modem05:32
calcRobinson: sleep more or less turns off everything but memory (and maybe a few other things)05:32
LiMaOkernfreak ➡ not too many titles, slow in sports games. that's what i've heard... never played any title on it myself.05:32
Robinsoncalc: does sleep shutdown fans and hard drive and only leave RAM and CPU ?05:32
kernfreakNOT TRUE05:32
kelvin911i installed rtcw with wine its awesome05:32
kernfreaksrry bout the caps05:32
geniigidean: Is it some usb dsl/cable modem?05:32
calcRobinson: i think sleep even turns off the cpu, or at least puts it in a very low power mode, yea05:32
Danish989can anyone tell me how to uninstall ubuntu?05:32
kernfreakI even have Ubuntu on my ps305:32

kelvin911how does ubuntu running in ps3?05:33

patrickvaWho gave me that ubuntu alternative iso link before?05:33
kelvin911is it good?05:33
patrickvaI lost the link05:33
Danish989I don't even see the OS choice menu and GRUB gets Error 22 each time it tries to load05:33
dmsupermanLiMaO, is cedega in the repos?05:33
calcRobinson: i think you can set your system to do so, depending on the bios05:33
Danish989Grub Loading Stage 1.5 .. Error 2205:33
|LiMaO|dmsuperman ➡ no, not cedega.. just wine05:33

patrickvaI need the link again05:34
Danish989patrickva, why dont you just download via Torrents?05:34
Cpudan80|LiMaO|: Thats what it's supposed to do?05:34
Robinsoncalc: which my old system would't dream of having ...but it would be cool if it watched network packets, it would be the next best thing to Wake-on-Lan05:34
dmsupermanlindenle, i'm sure those types of things will be added in later versions05:34
geniigidean: OK. Does it have a web interface?05:34
calcRobinson: sorta, its probably the same overall, wake on lan can also turn on a completely 'off' system, as long as the nic has power05:34

lindenledmsuperman: them and mlb.com05:36
dmsupermanlindenle, you could always try running ies4linux, does that play netflix?05:36
geniigidean: OK. Because if it's in "bridged" mode then you need the pppoeconf to make computer do the auth. If it's in "router" mode then you need to go into it's web interface and have it do the auth05:36
lindenledmsuperman: no idea05:36

dmsuperman|LiMaO|, aw, cedega costs money :'(05:36

kelvin911is cedega somthing like wine?05:37

Robinsonthanks anyways calc ! :)05:37
gideanstill havn't solved but I REALLY appreciate the help05:37
kelvin911how can they charge u money once u installed?05:38
dmsupermanDanish989, from windows recovery console, type "fixboot" and "fixmbr" and that'll restore windows bootloader05:38
ddifPeddy, /usr/share/app?not sure?05:38
timsandtomsIs there a way to automatically remove a phrase from the filenames of a big group of files?05:38
SperMiteI was wondering. I just ordered a new harddrive, a 250gb seagate. should i give /home its own partition ?05:38
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about icon - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi05:38
Danish989dmsuperman, cant I use some command in the terminal? how do I get into the windows recovery console, anyway?05:38
dmsuperman|LiMaO|, I highly doubt it for a big complicated game like SupCom. I've run into little bugs with simple apps like notepad++05:38
calckelvin911: updates05:38
Peddyddif: that directory does not exist :O05:38
DBautellSperMite, yes05:38
calckelvin911: cedega is the kind of program where you want the updates05:38
dmsupermanDanish989, terminal is for ubuntu, there's no way to install the windows bootloader with ubuntu :s05:38
Danish989isn't there someway I can just make ubuntu go away, and make Grub go away?05:38
kelvin911why calc?05:39
Danish989and go back to using Windows xp?05:39
cpk1dmsuperman: have you looked up the game you want to play on winehq?05:39
=== |LiMaO| is now known as LiMaO
SeaPhorcedega costs $5 a month by your choice after the initial first $5, i still pay because i like the product and the support i get and the DB updates05:39
kelvin911it will expire?05:39
calckelvin911: i'm pretty sure you can get most of cedega for free just not the parts that are licensed from eg macrovision, etc05:39
ddifPeddy, then it is /usr/share/application/,not sure,go and see05:39
Peddyddif: oh, sorry. Browsing ;)05:39
calckelvin911: they update it to work with newer games, to work better with older games, etc05:39
dmsupermancpk1, no, not yet. i've got a bad taste in my mouth for wine since trying to run simple apps like uTorrent (which was designed specifically for wine, btw) and notepad++05:39
cpk1I dont like to use cedega on principle05:39

dmsupermancpk1, so i've just been running a seamless vbox05:40
calckelvin911: ask SeaPhor for details, i don't play games, i just know about what they do05:40
kelvin911i guess $5 a month isnt that bad05:40
cpk1doesnt wine come with notepad?05:40
Danish989dmsuperman, if I just format the ubuntu partition, will that remove ubuntu?05:40
TechnovikingDanish989: search for the fixmbr on google05:40
LiMaOdmsuperman ➡ how long have you been away of wine?! i use undercoverxp, photoshop, dvdshrink and some other windows apps just fine with cedega... never had a single problem with it05:40
kelvin911big mac crappy meal cost more than $505:40
geniiDanish989: You get into windows recovery console by booting the windows cdrom and choosing to boot into the windows recovery console. From there is where you isue the commands like fixboot or fixmbr or so on, I'm sure they can assist far more with this in ##windows channel05:40
calckelvin911: its the price of a coke in london ;-)05:40

dmsupermankelvin911, for you, maybe, but $5 a month to play games i already own and could just reboot into windows to play isn't cool for me05:40
kelvin9115 bucks for a coke?05:40
dmsupermanLiMaO, 3 days ago05:40
Jordan_Ucpk1, notepad++ is an open source programmers text editor05:40
calcand as i found out today its cheaper than the cost of 12oz coke in Prague airport05:40
dmsupermanDanish989, sure05:40
calckelvin911: ~ $4 from what i recall05:40
CorbinFoxcalc: so £1.50, or about $918.72 :P05:41
geniiDanish989: If you format the ubuntu partition the boot manager will not be affected05:41
phuzionThe taskbar at the top right corner of my screen has remnants of an icon from wine that I had open earlier.  Is there a way to restart the taskbar or something so it cleans up?05:41
Danish989genii: so that means my computer will still continue to try to boot Grub?05:41
dmsupermanLiMaO, neither app would run properly 3 days ago, so i've just got my seamless vbox. i like it more anyway, wine (even with a good skin) makes the windows look so terribly ugly and hard to read :P05:41
calcCorbinFox: iirc the cokes when i was there were ~  £2 each05:41

kelvin911how does grub work?05:41
goldsnipermy intel 3945ABG can connect to G wifi router but cannot connect to 'B' access point wifi05:41

Jordan_Ugenii, Danish989 If you are using grub and you remove your Ubuntu partition grub will no longer work, even to boot another OS05:42
DBautellelphias, multilib05:42
kelvin911what if for some reason grub is gone, how to fix it?05:42
LiMaOdmsuperman ➡ i think you have a problem i used to have a long time ago.. when fonts and windows were ugly as hell within wine apps...05:42
elphiasDBautell: what is the command for that or just search synaptic?05:42
DBautellelphias, one second05:42
geniiJordan_U: Actually, yes if he used / for /boot that is correct05:42
kelvin911like if i can only boot in winxp how to fix the boot so i can choose the bootup screen again?05:42
SeaPhorcalc: im in rosenberg!05:42
Jordan_Ugenii, That is the default configuration in Ubuntu05:43
dmsupermanLiMaO, yeah, but that's only a minor problem. the main problem was that uTorrent, designed for use in Wine, wouldn't even work well, so I'm just avoiding it05:43
dmsupermanLiMaO, I've found plenty of good alternatives anyway05:43
calcSeaPhor: ah cool, i'm near willowbrook05:43
goldsniperanyone? any ideas why i can connect to 'G' wifi AP but can not to 'B' wifi AP?05:43

LiMaOdmsuperman ➡ dude, uTorrent works perfectly in here.. better than Transmission05:43

DBautellelphias, looks like apt-get multilib, but it's been a while since I set mine up05:43
Danish989jordan_u so I will be stuck without an operating system booting?05:43
SeaPhorcalc: no idea, lol- just moved here05:43
calcSeaPhor: do you know where I-45 and FM1960 is?05:44
LiMaOdmsuperman ➡ let me show you a screenshot, just a second05:44
geniiDanish989: To replace the grub boot manager, it needs to be overwritten with a new Windows one. This is done as previously explained by booting to Windows CD, selecting Recovery Console and then issuing the commands fixboot and fixmbr.05:44
Jordan_UDanish989, If you do not make another /boot partition or install another bootloader, yes05:44
calcSeaPhor: north of downtown05:44
kelvin911when u do sudo grub in liveCd whats the password?05:44
SeaPhorcalc: yep i work at HP05:44
dmsupermanLiMaO, it's not looks. a lot of buttons are unresponsive until i click twice05:44
Jordan_Ukelvin911, It shouldn't ask for a password05:44
elphiasnope v.v05:44
Danish989ok so do I first fix the boot problem or format the partition?05:44
calcSeaPhor: ah i used to work for HP, so i probably live about 5mi from where you work05:44
geniikelvin911: There isn't one05:44
calcSeaPhor: if you work off of SH24905:45
dmsupermanLiMaO, I'll take a look though, where's the compatability list for wine? I'm not seeing it right on the front of the site05:45
elphiasgoggleng the issue i came acrost something that requires your to force05:45
Jordan_UDanish989, What problem are you having exactly?05:45
kelvin911hey i have a question is it good idea to have root password and my normal user password the same?05:45
elphiasthat dosen't sound right to me...why should you have to -force something to work? o.o05:45
SeaPhorcalc: yep just before louetta05:45
Danish989when I start my computer, Grub starts loading stage 1.5 and then it gets an Error 2205:45
elphiasthere has to be a way to get 32bit apps to work in 64bit ubuntu05:45
Danish989and after that , nothing happens at all ..05:45
Jordan_Ukelvin911, You should not have a root password, just use sudo05:45
calcSeaPhor: i worked there until ~ june 2007 when i started working for Canonical05:45
dmsupermankelvin911, you don't really have a root password05:45
kelvin911i mean in ubuntu now liveCD05:45
calcSeaPhor: looks like a really long drive from rosenberg though05:45
dmsupermankelvin911, same thing05:46
SeaPhorcalc: any chance you're hiring?05:46
Jordan_U!root | kelvin91105:46
LiMaOdmsuperman ➡ http://appdb.winehq.org/05:46
ubotukelvin911: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo05:46
dmsupermankelvin911, still, just use sudo, and you don't ever really need root05:46
calcSeaPhor: they always are :) http://www.ubuntu.com/employment05:46
kelvin911i think i did set a password for root05:46
calcSeaPhor: most positions are work from home05:46

ubotuUsually, 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, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.07:57
evilbugspelling- MPlayer tends to be popular07:57
Conexionbazhang: Well, I originally had the default setup. Then I got rid of the top panel, customized the bottom one via the properties menu (right clicking)... then I added a few different things using Add To Panel (Right Click) and then, I restarted later... and now it's stuck on top07:57
Ragesmplayer is just mplayer with a better GUI for people who like GUIs07:57

mr_doug(reg: moniter dies while installing ubuntu)  ok, i tried the safe graphics mode and had the same problem07:58
bazhangConexion: my guess would be to reset the panels and begin again you can /msg ubotu resetpanels for the command to do that07:58

Jordan_Uxpkiller, can you pastebin the output of "sudo fdisk -l" ?07:59
evilbugspelling- i personally like vlc since it's simple and it's played everything i've thrown at it so far,i haven't ventured much with media players ESPECIALLY out of the OSX and Windows range.07:59

bazhangspelling: you have heard many options so please try them out and watch the language08:00
evilbugspelling- so why are you using it?08:00
thenetduckJordan_U, it would be more than 4gb wouldn't it? because I did a system back up compressing and my file is only 4gb big08:00
simplexiospelling: where you need gui ?. usuallu when i look videos i just klick video file press F for full screen,08:00

Both are shown to be empty by nautilus as well as by ls in terminal. Clicking Empty Trash in nautilus does not delete these directories as I (somehow)08:10

simplexioRage: hmm. does it make Trash for every oartition ..08:12
aygluonman: I think even winrar can handle tgz08:12
evilbugay- it didn't work for me when i used it.08:13
Jordan_Uxpkiller, I don't know how else to find your drive, but try as a stab in the dark "fdisk /dev/sda1"08:13
gluonmanay, but if she has the basic unzipping program that Windows comes with, she should be fine, right?08:13
Ragesimplexio: yes, that has been what I've experienced with ubuntu. It seems to make a .Trash-sukarn directory in every partition, but the only partitions I have are /, /home, swap and /media/storage08:13
evilbuggluonman- not from my experience.7zip will handle anything thoughl.08:13
simplexioRage: for me it has created into ntfs partiotion .Trash-username directory08:13
ayevilbug: you sure? Cause I'm pretty sure I once dled tgz and un"zipped" winth winrar08:14
gluonmanevilbug, how will she download 7zip? I'm not that familiar with Windows.08:14
zcat[1]gluonman: might be easiest for you to install 'zip' -- it's in the repos I think08:14
ayyeah 7zip is nice08:14
IzziI found what I am looking for08:14
evilbuggluonman- one sec.08:14
Izzithanks bazhang and simplexio08:14
gluonmanzcat[1], I'll look for zip in the repos and see what I can find.08:14
Jordan_Ugluonman, You can make it a regular zip file rather than a tarred gzipped file08:14
zcat[1]gluonman: if she googles 7zip the first result should be the right place08:14
evilbuggluonman- http://www.7-zip.org/08:14
evilbugjust give her that link.08:14
gluonmanJordan_U, how do you make a zip file in Linux?08:15
meowludodoes anyone have experience ith wine?08:15
Ragesimplexio: sukarn@Rage:~$ sudo rm /media/storage/.Trash*/* gives - rm: cannot remove `/media/storage/.Trash*/*': No such file or directory08:15
newbieuubazhang , sorry i was away . in xorg.conf file the driver is "nvidia"08:15
gluonmanevilbug, I guess making a zip file, if I can, would be better than instructing her to download something, because she frankly sucks at computers.08:15
Jordan_Ugluonman, In nautilus ( gnome ) right click it :)08:15

gluonmanJordan_U, thank you.08:15
ayso perhaps it doesn't take care of tgz :)08:15
evilbuggluonman- :) but just zipping won't make the file smaller.08:15
Jordan_Ugluonman, np08:15
Jordan_Uevilbug, What do you mean?08:16
gluonmanevilbug, doesn't it compress the files?08:16
simplexioRage: you could use find / -name "program that sould be in Trash"08:16
bazhangtar and gz are tgz correct ay?08:16
simplexioRage: or find / | grep fileintrash08:16
evilbugJordan_U- it makes a file into a .zip but it doesn't actually resize it to something smaller.08:16
patrickvaOkay, so I got Ubuntu installed, however, when I'm trying to log in, it automatically logs me out and says there might be an installation problem since my session lasted less than 10 seconds08:16
zcat[1].tar.gz is the same as .tgz  -- and .tar.bz2 is the same as .tbz08:16
patrickvaDoes anyone know the deal?08:16
ayevilbug: I think he needs it zipped to be able to send through msn08:17
Jordan_Uevilbug, That's surprising, you sure you aren't thinking of tar?08:17
gluonmanevilbug, it doesn't make it smaller, but it compresses it, right?08:17
evilbuggluonman- correct.08:17
ayevilbug: or maybe I'm yet again totally wrong08:17
bazhangcompress does not = make smaller?08:17
evilbugJordan_U- i'm sure. .rar can compress though.08:17
gluonmanevilbug, so that's fine. I don't need to shrink it, just be able to e-mail it.08:17
patrickvaOkay, so I got Ubuntu installed, however, when I'm trying to log in, it automatically logs me out and says there might be an installation problem since my session lasted less than 10 seconds08:17

newbieuufirst i enabled the Nvidia graphics driver in the restricted drivers , but i did not get the cube effect , so i downloaded the file and installed it following this guide http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_amd64_169.12.html08:33
zcat[1]hmmm.. you generally dont need a seperate /boot .. and yes, being 100% used is probably bad08:33
patrickvaWhat can I do about it?08:33
bazhangzubu have you tried anything or are you just wanting to chat about it08:33
patrickvaI used the guided partitioner from the alternate cd by the way08:33
zcat[1]how much space did you allow for all of linux and how did you partiton it?08:34
bazhanga 2GB boot?08:34
patrickvaI put it on a 1TB drive.08:34
twocarlo_ just wanting to chat about it i gues08:34
