Starnestommy!envy | earthmeLon and FallenAngel00:00
ubotuearthmeLon and FallenAngel: 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 »00:00
dmsupermanunop, There's 3 that use snd-hda-intel and each of those say that they're also in use00:00
errpastwhat's a good site for linux laptop compatibility00:00
FallenAngelah! that ubotu is really useful :)00:00
nugz1212ladies and gentlemen i have problems to be fixed00:00
dmsupermanunop, 3 that are used by*00:00
nugz1212woops00:00
earthmeLonhaha, yeah FallenAngel he's right, but I still highly suggest using envy :D00:01
el_rusoerrpast what's exactly your question?00:01
nugz1212nvm00:01
McJesterikonia, it needs an application00:01
sjovanokay, i got a script ~/vcn with chmod +x. how can i make the scrit executable from any dir?00:01
dmsupermanunop, is there a way to reboot and have it not load snd-hda-intel so that I can do it that way before it gets locked?00:01
errpastwhere can I buy a laptop that will be compatible and reasonably priced, other than dell00:01
erfolikonia: board works fine with windows though, it's just a 5 year old laptop00:01
errpastI don't want to hack. I want it to work00:01
ikoniaMcJester: what ?00:01
gottatrieitHi. I just installed IRC chat and this is my use in several months.  I can't believe how easy it was! I just turned it on and here I am.00:01
Odd-rationaleerrpast: system76.com00:01
ikoniaerfol: windows is not a linux kernel00:01
McJesterikonia, I'm still trying to edit the menu.lst00:01

el_rusoerrpast dell.com lol. have you tried with ebay?00:02
earthmeLonFallenAngel, also, make sure you follow these instructions: http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Gutsy#How_to_add_extra_repositories00:02
errpastOdd-rationale, cool. thx00:02
unopdmsuperman, well, the only sane way is to do the same for those modules too (and so on if required) .. or put the options to the module in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base  and reboot00:02
earthmeLonDoes anybody else feel like copy&paste in Ubuntu acts really weird?00:02
errpastel_ruso, Is Dell bad?00:02
McJesterikonia, I tried that too, there is not menu.lst in the boot folder00:02
FallenAngelearthmelon - cheers - you just preemted my next question00:02

sakallitrouble with realplayer and firefox 3 in 8.04. cant see the libtotem-complex-plugin.so plugin in the plugin folders, but when i do about:plugins it still seems to be there. if i do locate for it it finds it only in /usr/lib/totem/gstreamer and /usr/lib/xulrunner-addons/plugins/ the sound is all gorgled when i play rm through the browser. if i play the same links through realplayer they are fine.00:14
dmsupermanunop, it only had static half the time, so i can't be sure00:14

LainIwakuraHello, free -m shows that I have 13 MB out of 1 GB free...but I am hardly running any application. Also, conky shows that the % of mem in use is only 30%. This, hwoever, corresponds to the amount of mem used in the -/+ buffers/cache row in "free -m". So what does the first row of "free -m" mean, and should I be concerned that only 13 MB are free? How do I free mem? Thanks.00:19

KOJV2YEs bazhang, I posted it just a few moments ago; Is there any way to make Thunderbird or another Ubuntu mail application use my Vista Mail boxes without disrupting their structure? So that I can check my mail on both platforms without exporting/importing as I switch between OSs.02:19
Bassetts_hi, I am trying to resize my / partition but obviously it is locked in gparted, will I need the livecd or is it possible to just unmount / for gparted?02:19
MrStevebazhang:  -- I DID it!  Got Unetbootin and Ubuntu02:19
yuri_Q: in my session manager, how do i make an app load in the background? for example my rss reader pops up when i start ubuntu, but i want it to start minimized in the tray. is there a "-silent" command, or something similar?02:19
unopKOJV2, i was making a point about the speed at which updates are deployed with regards to linux, it's continually evolving unlike some counterparts02:20
bazhangKOJV2: use Vista mailboxes? from within a running Vista? while running ubuntu? sounds funny but seriously doubt it02:20
bazhangMrSteve: nice work02:20
MrStevescary stuff02:20
MrSteveBut, well worth the ability to get it02:21
KOJV2unop: I wouldn't say MS softs aren't evolving... I get like ten updates every month just for Windows and Office. Anyhow, let's leave it at that and focus on my possibilities of doing most of my daily work in Xubuntu. :)02:21
KOJV2bazhang: no, I mean I want to access my Vista Mail .dbx files natively from Ubuntu.02:21
MrStevemy windows wobble, and fade02:21
MrStevelol02:21
unopKOJV2, you did ask why there were so many updates -- and i was pointing out why there were so many updates :) no flame-war intended, eh02:21
MrStevecan you shake your windows around?02:22
KOJV2unop: surely not. I'm just keen on discussing in general. :)02:22
bazhangKOJV2: likely not possible; funny question though02:22
MrGnuHi Guys, Im running into an issue with Kde.  I am running into an error with insur1 temporary directories are full, check installation.  I googled this, but I could not find a solution, any ideas?  I installed KDE  via Terminal, sudo apt-get install kubuntu02:22
unopKOJV2, as am i (if you are implying i was doing any different)02:22
KOJV2bazhang: perhaps I could migrate to Thunderbird @ Windows and use the same boxes both on Windows and Ubuntu??02:23

maco"active" partitions only matter in windows02:56

Kleidersackthoreauputic_: and how does the mbr knows, which bootsector to load?02:57
thoreauputic_Kleidersack:  for example, you can only have one partition marked with the boot flag, but grub can load 2,3 or more OSs on various partitions02:57

MrGnuHi Guys, Im running into an issue with Kde.  I am running into an error with insur1 temporary directories are full, check installation.  I googled this, but I could not find a solution, any ideas?  I installed KDE  via Terminal, sudo apt-get install kubuntu03:03
NateFTHANKS ubot!03:03
NateFis that a bot or a real person?03:03
StarnestommyNateF: a bot03:03
gogetaIdleOne he has both a lice cd and server failing03:03
gogetaIdleOne live03:03
Kleidersackthoreauputic_: yes, by default it'splaced there and kicked by windows... but if you place grub to the bootsector of you linux part you can reenable it by setting the linux part active using windows program "diskpart"  without any further tools03:03
thoreauputic_arvind_khadri: the code in the mbr loads stage 1.5 of grub, or whatever the right number is (I would have to look it up)03:03
MrGnuWEll I wish I was, anyone know the answer?>03:03
IdleOneNateF: how new is this pc?03:03
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: Ah well that may be so - I don't know that method03:04
NateFumm 200103:04
IdleOneNateF: ok not hardware issue then03:04
gogetaIdleOne is if his hd is craping out03:05
NateFwell, ill re download and burn tomorow i got school tomorow :(03:05
adam__hello, i am thinking of upgrading to the beta, and i have a toshiba with the weird graphics (intel) and i was wondering if i will have to do the bios hack to get the graphics to work correctly?03:05
arvind_khadriKleidersack, grub boots first not the MBR03:05
gogetaIdleOne it was a vfs ata error03:05
NateFno03:05
NateFthe ata errors are gone now03:05
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: sounds like an inflexible method - what if you have say, a triple boot?03:05
Kleidersackarvind_khadri: MBR code is executed first... if grub is in the mbr, then it's executed.03:05
gogetaNateF if thats true start the live cd :)03:05
Scuniziadam__: without knowing specifically what the card is.. there won't be anyone answering.03:05
bmk789is a load of 10 not good?03:06
NateFlol, i did, the live CD gets stuck03:06
caveymaso1is there any way of having diff wallpapers on each of my desktops?03:06
adam__Scunizi, its the intel 94503:06
felipe__!tell me about grub03:06
gogetaNateF then thers still a issue03:06
IdleOneNateF: at what point does it get stuck?03:06
IdleOne!grub | felipe_03:06
ubotufelipe_: grub is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost grub after installing windows: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows - Making GRUB floppies & other GRUB howtos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto03:06
arvind_khadriKleidersack, yeah thats what am saying ...but how the hell can MBR see the grub when it doesnt what a ext3 FS is03:06
NateFumm, when i go to install, the status bar freezes03:06
Scuniziadam__: I think that should be supported now and Hardy should be even better.03:06
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: only a tiny part of grub is installed to the mbr - the rest is where you put it :)03:06
adam__Scunizi, thank you, i will go ahead and do it tomorrow, as i will surf tonight...03:06
Kleidersackthoreauputic_: now, I have to use a bootloader, but bootloader in the mbr is a bit messy... especially for dell,ibm and verious laptops..03:06
IdleOneNateF: how long have you waited for it to unstick?03:07
=== bay is now known as disdov
Scuniziadam__: are you on the live cd now?03:07
NateFumm, about 25-26 hours03:07
adam__Scunizi, no, i am on ubuntu ultimate 1.603:07
thoreauputic_arvind_khadri: the part in the mbr knows just enough to find grub - the rest happens after that03:07
gogetaNateF lol yea stuck03:07
Kleidersackarvind_khadri: mbr doesn't care the fs - it just looks for an active partition and loads the first (boot) sector.03:07
NateFlol03:07
Scuniziadam__: ah.. ok.. so are you going to beta of ultimate?03:07
IdleOneNateF: yeah that should be long enough. lol. ok go to bed and work on it tomorrow. school is more important03:07
thoreauputic_arvind_khadri: grub is pretty smart actually :)03:07
gogetaNateF i would md5 those isos make shure something isnt wrong there03:07
adam__Scunizi, no, im going to the plain ubuntu beta, 8.0403:07
NateFok03:08
NateFwell ill redownload then check all the info03:08
NateFill be back on tomorow03:08
arvind_khadrithoreauputic_, thats what am trying to prove03:08
IdleOnenight03:08
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: grub doesn't look for "active" - it finds kernels03:08
Scuniziadam__: you might consider just installing gutsy and when hardy is released (and fully functional) just upgrade through synaptic.. it will prompt you for the upgrade.03:08
gogetaNateF sometimes they go bad realy the case with ones that have been there a wile03:08
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: in fact if you have it on a floppy you can run it that way and it will show a list03:09
cirkit|lappyI've installed libdvdcss and win32codecs, I am unable to play a copyrighted DVD movie. Medibuntu repository has been added with the necessary software installed. Has anyone seen this issue before?03:09
adam__Scunizi, nah, i want to get off of the unsupported ultimate03:09
NateFok03:09
gogetaNateF or even your download manager can do it03:09
adam__Scunizi, and build it myself03:09
Scuniziadam__: gotcha03:09
Kleidersackthoreauputic_: yes, but my problem is to let the mbr load grub, because it seems not to work with logical drives, but works fine with primary partitions.03:09
NateFhow do i make sure the download manager is fine?03:09
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: alternatively you point it at another bootloader to chainload03:09
IdleOnewhere does rhythmbox save playlists?03:09
NateFim using FireFoz03:09
NateFFireFox*03:09
adam__Scunizi, there are alot of things on this ultimate, that i dont need, use, or have a use for... so i want to dump it,streamline an install, and start fresh, windows free03:09
gogetaNateF yea i had ff cruppt one once03:09
Scuniziadam__: :)03:10
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: I have no idea what you mean - grub finds logical drives just fine03:10
Kleidersackthoreauputic_: now, if nothing works i'll let the windows bootloader to chainload grub; a bit messy...03:10
Kleidersackthoreauputic_: but i need grub to be found.03:10
_NetUbuntu comes with GCC compiler right?03:10
adam__Scunizi, thanks for your help i do appreciate it, and will see ya later,03:10
Scuniziadam__: c-ya03:10
Kleidersackthoreauputic_: i don't want put grub to the mbr.03:10
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: how on earth did you complicate matters so much? If you just follow the standard ways grub works fine03:11
drewbyHello, are there any tools available to ubuntu to determine whether or not a video is encoded in MPEG4 - Part 10 versus MPEG4 - Part 2 (in other words H.264 versus Divx)?03:11
gogetaKleidersack supergrub live cd/floppy03:11
arvind_khadri_Net, yeah03:11
gogetaKleidersack you can rebuild it with that easly03:11
cirkit|lappyNevermind it works, had to re-insert the disc after installing the necessary files.03:11
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: I cannot see what the problem is with having grub on mbr03:11
arvind_khadrithoreauputic_, :) thats whats so messy03:11
Synclairhello03:11
gogetaKleidersack w same disk you c an even restore the mbr to stock windows03:12
Kleidersackthoreauputic_: unfortunately it's not so simple if you want to use dell and ibm computers with it's own tools-partitions03:12
arvind_khadriKleidersack, i think #grub would be more interested in what you are doing03:12
gogetaKleidersack well i told you how to fix it03:12
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: ah, so dell do something stupid with their partitions. I see :)03:13
caveymaso1is there any way of having different wallpapers on each of my desktops?03:13
Kleidersackgogeta: the problem is to load grub from an logical drive... i have rebuilded it several times.03:13
drewbyHow can I determine the codec of a given video file?03:13
Synclairhey I have a question that it's server related03:13
gogetaKleidersack what you do is backup the dell mbr to a safe place03:13
nanotraderare there any communities of france here??03:13
TangentBuntuhow do I change the home directory of a user via command line?03:13
gogetaKleidersack thers stuff out there that can do that03:13
caveymaso1lol they need to do something about this chanel its getting to big03:13
Kleidersackthoreauputic_: not really - the bios can set the tools partition active if you ran in trouble... but unfortunatelly it only works with a standard mbr code, because grub ignores the active flag03:14
ScuniziSynclair: ask...away..03:14
StarnestommyTangentBuntu: sudo usermod -d /new/home/dir username03:14
nanotraderplease, someone, i want to tlak to french people03:14
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: How do you suppose the millions of people running linux on Dell seem to manage to configure grub so easily?03:14
TangentBuntuomg usermod03:14
Kleidersackgogeta: sorry?03:14
Synclairokey, I have a server running ubuntu 7.1003:14

TangentBuntuStarnestommy: thank you03:14
gogetaKleidersack you can backup a mbr03:14
caveymaso1diff wallpapers anyone?03:14
Scunizi!fr | nanotrader03:14
StarnestommyTangentBuntu: you may need to move the stuff in that user's old home directory to the new one03:14
Kleidersackgogeta: but i need to run it each time before running in grub03:15
gogetaKleidersack err no03:15
Synclairthe thing is that I need my server to accept people logging in from a certain domain.. It's an ADS (Active Directory) and the thing is that I need to bind samba to the domain03:15
Kleidersackthoreauputic_: loosing the possibility to activate the tools partition by bios... the same for lenovo reparation button afaik03:15
gogetaKleidersack grub will setup for other oses03:15
Kleidersackgogeta: but ignore the active flag03:16
Synclairfor example, if a client wants to download or upload certain files to the server, he would have to input his user and password from the domain to the system (then the server would authenticate with the domain controller)03:16
ScuniziSynclair: so it's really an Active Directory thing.. someone here might know.. or over at #ubuntu-server .. the guys that deal with this all the time.03:16
TangentBuntuStarnestommy: it's just to give someone an FTP account to the webserver03:16
gogetaKleidersack so03:16
Synclaircool03:16
Synclairthx03:16
Scunizinp03:16
TangentBuntuno files have been there in the first place, Starnestommy03:16
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: hmm - OK. I only run linux so I guess a lot of this is not relevant to me - have you tried googling for the problem ?03:16
gogetaKleidersack well i have a suggestion for you03:16
RequinB4How can I make control+alt+delte open my system moniter03:16
gogetaKleidersack a wubi install03:17
Kleidersackthoreauputic_: yes, but don't have enough keyword to get a smart result03:17
Kleidersackgogeta: sorry?03:17
gogetaKleidersack it uses both the windows partation and boot loader03:17
ScuniziRequinB4: you ought to have it pull up a graphic that says  by by MS03:17
caveymaso1has anyone been successfull with multiple wallpapers? like diff wallpapers on each workspace?03:17
Synclairno response @ #ubuntu-server03:17
Kleidersackgogeta: you mean a bootloader?03:17
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: have you tried ubuntu+dell+tools+partition+grub  for example ?03:18
gogetaKleidersack http://wubi-installer.org/ its built in 8.04 but for 7.10 go there03:18
ScuniziRequinB4: seriously.. why not just put the sys monitor on the upper bar of the screen?03:18
RequinB4Scunizi - Maybe i'll do that on another machine :P  But i'm fixing my freind's laptop and he wanted an easily accessable system moniter03:18
zutmei have an onboard soundcard and a discrete soundcard. how can i choose which one I want to use? It defaulted to my onboard for some reason03:18
RequinB4Scunizi - security, i think03:18
gogetaKleidersack all you need to do is restore the windows boot sector03:18
Kleidersackgogeta: i have already installed ubuntu03:18
ScuniziRequinB4: don't know how that would make any difference..03:19
gogetaKleidersack well you dont wanna mod it03:19
gogetaKleidersack this would work for you03:19
Kleidersackgogeta: no, not really... my windows bootsector is fine... but i don't want grub in the mbr...03:19
RequinB4Scunizi - oh, you mean on the toolbar?  That would be last ditch03:19
ScuniziRequinB4: right click bar.. select "Add to Panel" and attach it.. then you're done..03:19
Scuniziyep03:19
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: I just tried that and got some hits that look as if they could help03:19
gogetaKleidersack readit does not use grub03:19
RequinB4Scunizi - THanks for the suggestion, but it would still be nice to get the keyboard shortcut03:20
longmanzzhi03:20
longmanzzyo03:20
highwayzutme, can't you just disable the on-board sound card in the bios?03:20
Kleidersackgogeta: as far as i can see, wubi is just an installer... isn't it?03:21
ScuniziRequinB4: there ought to be a way to put it in System/Preferences/Keyboard Shortcuts.. but there's lots of stuff there and no "Add" button03:21
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: another google search for you:  ntldr+boot+linux+howto03:21
ScuniziRequinB4: maybe in the conf file for that app.03:21
gogetaKleidersack ir installes in a image file inside windows and uses the windows boot loader03:21
zutmehighway, i suppose I could, but that's kind of a hack isn't it? I should be able to select it somehow wouldn't you think?03:21
RequinB4Scunizi - yeah, i asked here because the one thing i'm dissapointed about ubuntu was a lack of GUI keyboart shortcut changes03:21
lolzhey there. i'm running ubuntu from the boot disk and i am considering formating my current windows hd and using ubuntu full-time, cus it is much better. my question is, me and a friend are coding a website, ubuntu can edit .html / .php files correct?03:21
gogetaKleidersack no partations or grub03:21
danageanybody have good instructions on how to compile hostap drivers and modprobe them into the kernel? i don't know how to compile JUST the drivers...03:22
gogetaKleidersack your only other option are install it on the bootsector a floppy or a usb drive03:22
highwaythere might be another way, but if you don't need the on-board, why leave it on?03:22
thoreauputic_lolz: of course :) Any number of editors can handle those03:22
fyrmediclolz yup no problem. I think the package is Quanta or bluefish. Or you can use a content management system and not worry about it.03:22
lolzis there a application, alike dreamweaver for ubunut?03:22
Kleidersackgogeta: oh, nice idea... but my problem is to get grub running, because i don't have windows on each computer to install... but there are plenty dell / lenovo / other manufactures using the active-feature...03:23
gogetaKleidersack if you wanna avoide the primary mbr03:23
lolzUbuntu*.03:23

gogetaKleidersack linux does not need activ03:24
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: have you actually tried the searches I suggested?03:24
Kleidersackgogeta: the active flag tells the standard mbr code, which bootsector to load...03:24
lolzwhat's a good (preferably low) hd size for ubuntu?03:24
gogetaKleidersack you should be able to bot any partation with grub even recovery03:24
danagelolz: 2gb03:24
gogetaboot03:24
lolzwill 2gb do?03:25
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: you are approaching this from a totally non-linux angle03:25

lolzalright thanks a lot guyz.03:25
lolzcya.03:25
RequinB4thanks much Scunizi03:25
ScuniziRequinB4: np.. :)03:25
thoreauputic_Kleidersack: an extended partition is just a container03:25

sjovancan anyone recomend a prog to finde the keyframes in a avi? avidemux sucks teh balls in linux03:27

Poeanyone have an idea where I should go?03:33
Daisuke_IdoKleidersack, just because that's how you did it before doesn't mean that's how it's done now, gogeta told you where to look for help with grub.  i use a dell, it works fine, end of discussion03:33

ricanelitewhy is that the windows are so big in Ubuntu? Like I have the right screen resolution which is 1280x720 like I have notice that in windows vista, xp there are so much smaller03:33

atlefBassoon: see if wine-doors is what you are looking for04:18
RequinB4well, the gpl allows people to sell the product as a service for distrubuting/compiling so long as the source code is given freely, so I suppose you could just sell it for $0.0104:18

RequinB4nethakz - consider crossover, whose source is freely available on the net.  Most people who know enough to compile will probably a) not re-distribute in an effort to support the devs or b) just take what they need from teh source04:24

thoreauputic_danny: the black text mode you get with ctrl+alt+F1-6 :)04:44
Starnestommyn-iCe: there isn't a difference other than that aptitude supports more options and when started with no arguments it provices an interactive text-pased package manager interface04:44
Shadow420Kelvin911 what type of Video Card you have?04:44
gogetakelvin911 best way is use the eq the direct mode that lets you use it is the best04:45
Starnestommy*provides04:45
dannyalt+f7 doesn't do anything, either04:45
gogetakelvin911 i think it was xv or the other one xvb or something04:45
thoreauputic_danny: tty = Teletype ( it's a hnagover from long ago when terminals were really teletypes)04:45
thoreauputic_danny: are you in the text mode?04:45
Shadow420danny ctrl-alt-f704:45
gogetakelvin911 if its still flikering i would say driver thing04:45
thoreauputic_danny: ctrl-alt-F1 or ( F2 etc)04:46
gogetakelvin911 or maybe some compiz tqeaking04:46
thoreauputic_Shadow420: not needed from a tty04:46
n-iCeI see Starnestommy  and how do I update a package?04:46
kelvin911compiz tweaking how?04:46
gogetakelvin911 do you have the compiz confige manager installed04:46
kelvin911yes04:46
thoreauputic_Shadow420: in fact if you use alt+aroow you eventually get back to X - try it :)04:46
gogetakelvin911 go to it and slect enable comiz for video04:46
thoreauputic_Shadow420: ctrl+alt+F* is only needed in X04:47
kelvin911where?04:47
Shadow420thoreauputic_ true04:47

Agent_bobOn3 alternatively you could edit the /etc/passwd and set the proftp user's home to /downloads/   should achieve the same end.05:22

Agent_bobOn3 welcome.   and you are learning some of the "most basic" and powerful linux commands your first day....05:46
gogetaAgent_bob what framebufer mode?05:46
On3Agent_bob, its kind of sad but ive been using Knoppix and Ubuntu on my desktop for a while, but always my Win2003 server was ok, but now i think its time to upgrade to something alittle more powerful... Go ubuntu server!05:47
khinhey guys, im running dapper and sometimes, firefox (v. 1.5.0.12) just randomly quits. all my windows at once, gone05:47
Agent_bobbouma ok,   my answer stands as perscribed then.05:47
Agent_bobbouma ummm without writing a script not toggle,  but; you can use the windows keys or the like to shift higher and lower tty's   i can give you a command for it if you like.05:47

Agent_bobgogeta besides cli based linux is not pre'se "weaker" than +gui  anyway05:49
gogeta blind hell you can play a a movie in framebuffer mode if you whant05:50

gogetaAgent_bob well if you wanna a gui you better w desktop + server tools05:50
HipShothey quick question, what is that new apt that automatically installs and updates video drivers for Ubuntu?05:50

Andre_Gondimdoes anyone know witch pack may i translate channel source?06:00

boumawell everyone, agent-bob has gone, but i figured out there is a loadkeys alias called Last_console .. so thats the solution to having a key toggle between two consoles :P06:23
arquebusmactimes, yes  there is open source video screen capture software, but I cant remember the name off hand06:24
TheDukeNYHello, I was hoping someone could tell me know to extend my screen to a second monitor as opposed to having my screen cloned06:24

legend2440Aces|: sometimes for certain hardware the alternate cd works better07:18
LeeuwChris[]: Try Gnome-burner, or Brasero, that solved my blank-CD eating problem (really, burning CD's with Nautilus has never worked for me)07:18
legend2440!alternate07:18
ubotuThe Alternate CD is a classical text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate checkbox on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal07:18
Aces|Ok07:18
Aces|Ill download it and give it a try. Thanks.07:18
legend2440Aces|: ok good luck07:18
LeeuwAces|: or try Xubuntu; we had problems installing ubuntu, ubuntu alternate, Xubuntu did the trick, later added ubuntu-package, presto !07:19
Leeuw!xubuntu07:19
ubotuXubuntu is Ubuntu with Xfce instead of !GNOME. More info at http://www.xubuntu.org and http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/ - To install from Ubuntu: « sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop » - Join #xubuntu for support - See also: !Ubuntu and !Xubuntu-Channels07:19
wesleysldey Rprp o/07:20
Aces|Ok thanks again.07:20
snarksterAces|: you could also do that Kubuntu load if you like KDE07:20
Aces|This is my first run all around so Ill have to find something that works and go from there.07:21
Chris[]Leeuw: What about gnomebaker?07:21
snarksterAces| are you coming from windows?07:21
Aces|Yes07:21
snarksterKDE is very similar to windows07:22
Fai love kde 407:22
snarksterin layout but is WAY more intergrated than any version of windows07:22
Faoh yeah07:22
snarksterkde4 just isnt stable enough yet07:22
Faubuntu with kde 4 beats xp hands down07:22
djznhi... i have a dilema... I have 2GB of RAM.... should I make a 4GB SWAP partition or a 512MB will do just fine? The most critical thing I do in this computer is convert h.264 videos to VOBs...07:22
bazhangnot true kde4 is stable07:23
Aces|Ok07:23
Fayeah i still love07:23
Fa:P07:23
gad0snarkster< KDE is very similar to windows > gnome & xfce are similar too ;)07:23
LeeuwChris[]: H :-D:-[, yeah, Gnomebaker, that's what I meant (there's no such thing as gnomeburner; well maybe myself... stup-id me)07:23
Fakde 4 still has some bugs07:23
snarksteryah KDE4 is beautiful really..07:23
Chris[]xD, Leeuw. I believe I usually use gnomebaker, I'm trying it now.07:23
Exterisdjzn, make a 2gb ram partition, in case you want to hibernate, or 1gb if you're low on disk space07:23
snarkstergad0 this is true that gnome and xfce are similar as well. but KDE almost looks like windows. Makes the newbies feel alot more comfortable I think07:24
djznExteris: I never ever hibernate... in fact, I have never used that feature in 15 years using computers07:24
Fai just can't stand gnome07:24
Leeuwdjzn: stick to 2 G, that's the most that can be managed, everything over get's lost in cyberspace...   500 will do fine, I have 4 Gig RAM, use lotsa stuff, never anything gets swapped07:24
Faxfce is ok07:24
Exterisdjzn, (i mean suspend to disk)07:24
djznno, i don't use that... either the computer is off the plug or running....07:25
mshadlehow do i force a module "e1000e" to be loaded -instead- of "e1000" ? isn't it a modules.conf or modprobe.d line?07:25
snarksterFa: I hated gnome and was a strict KDE person, just decided to push the envelope and use gnome. When KDE4 reaches 4.1 or higher Ill switch back07:25
djznbecause a 4GB swap partition never gets written.... 4GB is quite a space....07:25
Facool07:26
Fa4.1 suppose to be out in the summer i hear07:26
Exterisdjzn, with hibernate you can suspend all ram to disk, power off, and when you boot again, all apps are restored07:26
gad0did anyone ever had problems with xine/mplayer color settings & nvidia restricted drivers ?07:26
snarksterhibernmate just doesnt work well on this laptop.. I lose sound completely07:26
djznexteris: will that feature replace the boot process in the future (is replacing?)07:27
Exterisdjzn, i don't know, but i like it, give it a try07:28
LeeuwExteris: does hibernate use the swap ?   I didn't know...   but how then can a 4G RAM sleep on 2 G swap ?   Or does it store states instead of entire RAM like Windoze ?07:28
ExterisLeeuw, you almost never use the full 4G ram for apps, a lot of it is buffer07:29
ExterisLeeuw, i have 2gb ram, 1gb swap and hibernate works fine07:29
LeeuwExteris: OK, so buffers donb't need sleep ;-) ?07:29
LeeuwExteris: but are U sure sleepfile ends up on swap ?07:30
PhatKatI'm trying to backup my system, my upgrade from 7.1 to 8.04 didn't go so well. I'm trying to use the Simple Backup Config but. For some reason no it always backs up to the /var/backup folder where I don't have enough space. I want to send the back up to a usb hard drive. Should I try and mount the hard drive as /var/backup?07:30
Exteris!hibernate | Leeuw07:30
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about hibernate - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi07:30
Exteris:@07:30
gad0actually its a little more complicated then tat...  Leeuw07:30
Leeuwgad0: tell me, I lovoooove needlez knowledzj07:31
djzni read that with 2GB of RAM, it is silly to have a 2GB/4GB swap partition because it never gets written.... That 512MB wil do just FINE.. if not Less....07:31
Chris[]Leeuw: The ./dists/dapper/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz file failed the MD5 checksum verification. Your CD-ROM or this file may have been corrupted. [[[Again]]] :(07:31
nsandimanhi, I have a usb infrared device that I want to use on my machine...can anyone explain to me how to go about it?07:31
LeeuwChris[]: and it's always the same file ?07:32
gad0Leeuw, i have only 1 hand so cant type much... better check on wiki page or google07:32
Ntemishello07:32
Ntemisi search a tool for printing CD/DVD labels07:32
Chris[]Yep. Would it matter that my processor is AMD, should I be using the other version? I don't think it matters as long as I'm not using 64-bit on a 32-bit..07:32
Ntemiswich is the best for this?07:32
bazhangChris[]: this will be a dual boot or only ubuntu07:33
MRgoodhello07:33
Leeuwgad0: sure, no sweat, I had already scheduled it in my downtime for work this afternoon... thanx for hinting me thoug, now I know thereś a new thing to be learned, and that makes a good day, right ?   right.07:33
Chris[]bazhang: This is through VMWare07:34
Gokee2Will rm -rf /var/cache/* hurt anything?  I mean badly?07:35
bazhangChris[]: through vmware? what do you mean? you want to install from vmware onto a harddrive, or just run the distro in vmware--what is the guest os07:35
Chris[]The guest os is ubuntu07:35
LeeuwChris[]: well, maybe there is a problem with the virtual install, but my guess is the ISO if it's always same file; try a different mirror for download ?   (But use RW' s, don't spend all those blanks on tracing a problem)07:35
legend2440PhatKat: if you choose "Use custom backup settings" option you can choose where to put the backup under the 'Destination' tab07:35
Chris[]I don't have any RW's lol07:35
=== MRgood is now known as icesword
bazhangChris[]: not sure of your final goal; please clarify07:36
gad0Gokee2, wat exactly are you trying todo ?07:36
PhatKatLegend244C: Ya tried that no matter where I set it it always goes to the default /var/backup07:37
LeeuwChris[]: go get some then, before you use up your whole stock !07:37
Chris[]I currently have a system with Debian on it, and I wish to create a virtual machine through vmware. This requires that I insert an ubuntu live cd and use the client software to go through the installer.07:37
Chris[]My final goal, pretty much.. get ubuntu to install :P07:37
simon_Gokee2: aptitude clean? if you're trying to clean out your apt cache07:37
PhatKatI also just tryed to mount my usb hd to /var/backup didn't quite work out now I can't mount it period.07:38
Gokee2gad0, My hard drive is full so I need to free up a little room to let a dist-upgrade finish07:38
legend2440PhatKat: thats strange. i've only used sbackup once. i use partimage now. works very well for me07:38
chris062689OH WOW, theres a rumor The Orange Box is being ported to Linux... sweet.07:38
gad0Gokee2, then type sudo apt-get clean07:38
bazhangChris[]: was that meant for me? if you do not use my nick I will miss it; am helping another user in seperate channel07:38
Chris[]Sorry, yes it was, bazhang.07:39
PhatKatI'll try partimage is it in the repo?07:39

Gokee2For that matter I better not clear apt`s cache....  :/07:40
bazhangChris[]: you have the livecd running? or you already have ubuntu installed and want to install to another machine? not clear here07:40
gad0Gokee2, then proply del each package mnanually which isnt required by dist-upgrade... lol07:40
Gokee2Apt is the bigest thing in cache07:40
Gokee2Is there anything I can delete?07:41
Chris[]I have Debian installed, and am trying to install Ubuntu on a virtual machine, pretty much it's own partition. Kind of like a dual boot.07:41
legend2440PhatKat: i think so but in order to backup your main partition you have to boot from a cd that has partimage on it so the partition is not mounted as you back it up. I boot from system rescue cd to do backups07:41

MEtaLpREsjust make the folders network shares08:19
RainarrowBecause I heard samba is best for sharing between Windows and Linux boxes08:19
Rainarrowso if I have two Ubuntu boxes do I have a better choice?08:19
MEtaLpREsthen the folders will be visable to any other machine on the network08:20

sconeI need help editing my fstab08:21
jburdRainarrow: SSH.08:21
RainarrowMEtaLpREs, thanks, but what's the CLI equivalent of the operation? Since I may want to exchange some .conf files between two my two boxes, and sudo is more convenient than gksudo for me08:22
jburdRainarrow: scp, sftp08:22
AdrianStraysAlright. I was trying to setup firestarter so it automatically began at boot.  I followed the instructions on the FAQ page only to discover I couldn't save the sudoers file.  So, I saved it elsewhere, then moved/overwrote the original with the edited one. It still doesn't work, and I can't edit it normally it says it should be "0440" when it is "0680"08:22
MEtaLpREsi dont do anything in command line unless i absolutely have to so i really dont know08:22
AdrianStrayseRRR08:22
AdrianStraysIt should be "0440" when it is "0644"08:22

Siliciumdoes likewise support PAM?08:23
Rainarrowjburd, thanks, would you mind explain a little more? of course I could just google around if otherwise08:23
Rainarrowjburd, I've not heard anything about scp08:24
jburdRainarrow: SSH is used for secure access to resources.  scp is a tool to copy files over SSH.08:24
Rainarrowjburd, ok, so I need to setup a SSH server on one of my Linux boxes right08:24
jburdRainarrow: You will need SSH server instances on both computers if you wish to access either of them from any one.08:24
jburdsudo aptitude install ssh08:24
AdrianStraysCan anyone help me?08:25
Rainarrowjburd, ok thanks, I'll google for a howto on SSH08:25
jburdRainarrow: You can then access both computers using Nautilus or the command line.08:25
ayahJust one question right now. If I install the RC, will the update app let me upgrade to the final when it is released? Or will I have to reinstall to be completely up to date?08:25
bazhangAdrianStrays: you did all this to get firestarter to work at boot?08:25
jburdRainarrow: Try this first:  Places > Connect to Server... > Service Type: SSH08:26

Greenboxbazhang, a lot of people can't get torrents working over wireless in 7.1008:32
bazhangGreenbox: you have an actual launchpad bug number?08:32
Greenboxbazhang: let me relocate ite08:32

bazhang_2: when you start xorg? you mean when your computer starts up or what08:33
_2oh<  i have an issue.    when i start xorg the keyboard stops working propperly.   anyone that might be able to put a fingure on why that happens ?      this is an LTS dapper custom install.08:34
_2bazhang no.  when i start xorg.08:34
=== Syntux_ is now known as Syntux
bazhangng0n: click down? what exactly do you mean08:34
bazhang_2: how do you 'start' xorg08:35
monkeybritchesHow would you define 'properly'?08:35
ng0nbazhang - click down = minimize window.08:35
_2any of several ways.   startx   X & startkde     gdm      pick your take.08:36
jeffimperialHi.. how do you turn off the default "screen saver" for ubuntu?08:36
ng0nwhen i minimize i get no 'icon' in the panel.08:36
ng0nthe program just vanishes.08:36

_2@ bazhang ^     sorry i didn't prefix your nick.08:36
monkeybritchesjeffimperial: Right click on desktop > Screensaver > Uncheck 'Start automatically'08:37
jeffimperialmonkeybritches: hey man.. i don't have "Screensaver" when I right click the desktop.. just "Change Desktop Backgroun"08:38
_2bazhang i can't drop back to a console from xorg without i first use the magic sysRQ to reset the keyboard   the ctrl key doesn't work from within xorg otherwise08:38
monkeybritchesSorry, I'm using KDE, so I guess it's different08:39
ng0nbazhang: when i minimize a program it doesn't go down to the panel.. it just vanishes ?  why ?08:39
monkeybritchesAnyone with Gnome is welcome to answer that :)08:39
jeffimperialmonkeybritches: Yeah.. I'm on Gnome..08:39
friedtofung0n make sure you ahve a panel that lists your task programs08:39
friedtofung0n you might have accidently removed it08:39
_2ng0n pager applet not running ?08:39
jeffimperialAnyone know how to turn off default screensaver in ubuntu-gnome?08:39
friedtofung0n try using alt + tab to see if it brings it up08:40
ng0nfriedtofu: i got a panel on the bottom of the screen with trash can, 2 screens, showing the programs in the screens.08:40
bazhang_2: that sounds really awful; what kb is this? bluetooth or MS or somesuch?08:40
_2bazhang nope.  standard 104 key   ps208:41
bazhang_2: ps2? same behaviour with a usb kb as well?08:41
friedtofung0n - so the one with the two screens is your pager/for your workstation ... try right clicking on the panel and add + and then try to find something that has something remotely with the task applications08:41
* _2 doesn't have a usb keyboard to test that...08:42
friedtofu*workspaces08:42
Rainarrowjeff, System->Pref->Screen Saver=>uncheck "Activate screensaver when this computer is idle"08:42
friedtofung0n - :/ sorry i cant be more specific, i'm using xfce08:42
_2bazhang idk ...08:42
friedtofung0n but does alt + tab bring up your windows you minimized?08:42
ng0nfriedtofu: no.  alt + doesn nothing.08:43
jeffimperialRainarrow: Thanks.. Why does Ubuntu regard my computer idle when i'm into a full screen game after 10min?08:43
bazhang_2: that is really odd; got a ps2 here as well as usb and no worries either way--this is gutsy, hardy or what08:43
Rainarrowjeffimperial, .....maybe all the mouse/keybd events was captured by the game?08:43
Rainarrowjeffimperial, so GNOME received no events at all during your game08:43
kevin__jeffimperial: that happened to me too, i don't know why so ijust disabled the screen saver08:43
_2bazhang dapper08:44
Rainarrowjeffimperial, what's the name by the way08:44
ng0nfriedric: i minimized rhythem box... and it still is playing..... but there is no way to get it back up.08:44
Rainarrowjeffimperial, ok I mean what game08:44
Morph3usHi.. i need some help.. i have lost my data.. my partition is ext3.. how can i recover it? it's possible? :S08:44

ng0nrebooted.  still not working.08:45
_2!info testdisk | Morph3us08:45
bazhang_2: ah dapper; seem to recall some ancient bug related to that, though it has been a while since using dapper--best bet is to check launchpad as that sounds like a really severe bug08:45
ubotumorph3us: testdisk (source: testdisk): Partition scanner and disk recovery tool. In component universe, is optional. Version 6.6-1 (gutsy), package size 668 kB, installed size 2624 kB08:45

kevin__it happened to me while playing tremulous, would be a good idea to see if it happens with other games08:45
Morph3us_2 i just run testdisk, but says that my disk is OK.. how can i recover my data?08:45
ng0nfreidtofu.  thanks all the same :)08:45
taricrishi guys. I need help to install .bin file08:45
friedtofung0n maybe try killall rhythmbox08:45
bazhangng0n: you deleted your pager?08:47
Morph3usubotu exists another tool better? What about sysrescuecd?08:47
_2Morph3us ?     where did you get "testdisk" ?    the testdisk app in the repos should by default give you the option to search for deleted partitions and restore them.08:47
ndavidDoes anyone know the name of the process that plays an mp3 in the background when you hover the mouse over the icon?08:47
RainarrowAnyone here running hardy? My hardy RC would occasionally consume 100% CPU by the hald-inpu process08:47
Morph3us_2 sudo aptitude install testdisk08:47
Ademanhas anyone setup zope 3 on ubuntu? i installed the zope3 package and assumed i'd be able to just navigate to localhost:8080 (the ubuntu docs suggested 9673 as well, but neither worked)  if it helps i've got apache installed and running right now, as i understand it zope has it's own http server, maybe the two are conflicting?08:47
Morph3us_2 in fact, i format my disk08:47

KOJVHow come there are none of the normal (Windows?) resolutions available in Xubuntu? All like random frequencies... such as 1600x1200 @ 68 Hz.08:56
MagicDuckhi, I am having a small problem with screen refresh rate: I set everything fine with "nvidia-settings" and save the xorg.conf file, but when I login again as my user, System>Preferences>Screen Resolution apparently tells me I am going at 50 Hz instead of 75 Hz08:56

tarandusI have Dapper in my Thinkpad T22 (256 RAM, 900MHz Pentium III M), would you recommend staying with it? Which one would work fastest and demand the least resources, Dapper, Edgy, Feisty or Gutsy?08:57
bazhangtarandus: any way to up the ram on that?08:57
tarandusbazhang: no cheap or fast ways that I know of08:57
unimatrix9hi there08:58
MagicDucktarandus: probably Dapper is fastest, if you want even lighter, install xfce08:58
unimatrix9can i black list a driver from loading when running a livecd?08:58
bazhangtarandus: then dapper (gnome) is likely the best bet; you might want to try gutsy fluxbuntu or xubuntu livecd's just to see if they can run though08:58
tarandusbazhang: for 50 euros I might be able to have 256+128 instead of the current 128+12808:58
bazhangtarandus: likely not worth it, just a bit more and you can get an eeepc ;]08:59
tarandusDapper is nice now, but it would get slower if I upgraded?08:59
bazhangtarandus: for what you have dapper is likely ideal08:59
bazhangMagicDuck: could you pastebin your xorg.conf please?09:00
rohanhow come this news item was released -- http://www.ubuntu.com/news/ubuntu-8.04-lts-desktop , but ubuntu release is still 3 days away, right?09:02

gabbsUnlike debian ubuntu doesn't have kernel-patch-openvz ?09:04
bazhangMagicDuck: with the 'xinerama' is nvidia-settings the only way to do it? this is gutsy right?09:04
_2howto set the keyboard to "x-late" from some xorg startup script, so i don't have to alt+sysRQ+r each time i want the ctrl key to work ???09:05
MagicDuckhmm, I don't think I am using xinerama -- I am currently on hardy09:05
_aeGIsDoes anyone know how to change the icon associated with mime/msword and mime/rtf ?  Clicking on the icon in properties just changes it for that individual file.  Please help.  I changed the association to abiword, and it opens fine.  The only thing is it used the OO icon still.09:05
bazhangMagicDuck: you did that before the upgrade to hardy? or since09:06
_2what is a command to adjust the x keyboard map ?09:07
MagicDuckit's weird, I remember it working before - my real problem is not the system xorg.conf but the danged per-user "Screen Resolution" thingie. I wonder if there is a way to turn it off09:07
bazhangMagicDuck: there are some xorg wizards usually in the hardy channel a bit later who can figure that out--seems that xrandr or something else has taken the place of that and is much easier now09:07
KOJVtarandus: You should really consider that RAM upgrade... or why not a new machine?09:07

_2gromozekin sudo -i09:10
_aeGIskojv: I was mistaken... the script is enable-edge-mousewheel.sh and it's for using your mouse wheel at the edges to flip the screen... You need to edit xorg.conf for 5 mouse buttons.09:11

mnehi. I have a funny TV<->VGA converter cable so that I can use a regular VGA output with a TV set. However, xrandr tells me that the VGA port is "disconnected". Possibly because the converter cable does not "emulate" a real CRT. Is there a way I can force xorg/xrandr to enable the VGA output (although it thinks that no monitor is connected to it) ?09:41

matgatei try to run live cd on ma desktop computer, however its working fine on my laptop, but on desktop, it take me to the command line, never go to the GUI so i can install a copy09:56

jeffimperialushimitsudoki: updating i mean09:59
olafskiI did, tried several things.. setting the horizsync/vertrefresh, disabling some edid option.. it won't show a higher resolution, even though I'm sure the card can handle it; ancient though it may be09:59
DracoZAolafski good way to try would be with another card then, if you can get one of course, I managed to get mine working on a GeForce 2 GTS which is 8 years old now :)10:00
ushimitsudokijeffimperial: hmmm - I can only tell you that deluge works fine for me (and has for several versions), with the past exceptions of if it was not closed down properly, then that one file would need deletion and a reboot was required.10:00
banditulmatgate,  what's the error ?10:01

sidelilGIn, ok, thanks. I was just wondering beacuse on the shipit website it says: "64-bit Desktop Edition, for computers based on the AMD64 or Intel64 architectures (e.g., AMD Athlon 64, and Intel Core 2)."11:21
Filled-Voidsidelil, Im using 64 bit . However if you are nwe with Ubuntu I would recommend 32 bit11:21
TRC2908hello, any experts here to help me figure out how to mount my maxtor external hard drive (i think i need a mount command but first need to edit fstab  - how do i find out the mount point11:21

Filled-Voidsidelil, I gues it depends on what you do the most. If its regular desktop use I seriously doubt you would notice the difference11:23
