ab123how do i start being a developer00:00
NaisenuI'm on my Ubuntu side right now, and I need to access files from my Windows OS partition. I've been able to access them before and it's not an NTFS issue as I can access an NTFS formatted second physical hard drive. My /media is only showing me an empty hda1 and hdb1 (second physical hard drive).  Drive/partition layout available on request for this. :)00:00
Claw6problem : xubuntu seames not working with my SD/MMC USB reader. when plug in it says "mount: wrong fs type" what can i do ?00:01
yoyonedNaisenu: mount /media/hda100:01
mynetdudecan anyone recommend a VNC system that will work both with windows and ubuntu?00:01
mynetdudeso I can use it from either side?00:01
Naisenuah because Windows was an ass and couldn't reboot and decided it needs a check00:02
Naisenui hate windows *sigh*00:02
NetEchowell Ubuntu has a remote desktop option that can be viewed by a VNC viewer00:02
=== eric is now known as Guest93684
mynetdudeNetEcho I was wondering about that, but can the ubuntu rd connect to the windows VNC server?00:03
NetEchoother way arround00:03
NetEchoUbuntu RD is the server00:03
NetEchoyou need a VNC client under windows00:03
NetEchobut any vnc client should connect to any VNC server00:04
mynetdudeNetEcho so what client will work with the ubuntu server?00:04
Guest93684Is it possible to md5sum a directory to see if a copy between an old harddrive to a new one?00:04
NetEchomynetdude any vnc client00:04
mynetdudeso any client can connect to any server00:04
c_07_empemp_: No, that just identifies the hardware. A Google search found this: http://absolutebeginner.wordpress.com/2006/08/08/how-to-install-xglcompiz-on-ubuntu-the-easy-way/ (the author mentions that he used it on his Intel 855GM chip)00:04
mynetduderegardless of which OS?00:04
NetEchoI've never had a problem mixing and matching clients and servers00:04
NetEchoI used tightvnc to view ubuntu as well as realvnc ect00:04
mynetdudeNetEcho, really... wasn't sure thought they had to match00:04
mynetdudeyeah but realvnc is payware now00:05
NetEchoyea00:05
NetEchoI know00:05
mynetdudeand realvnc has both windows/linux00:05
NetEchoits unfortunate00:05
mynetduderealvnc was the best actually00:05
Ashfire908I'm having issues with my desktop. There seems to be lag for new connections to the machine.00:05
Guest93684mynetdude, yeah its all independant from operating systems what vnc does is just shows you whats happening on the other system00:05
mynetdudeerr I mean it still is00:05
Guest93684mynetdude, theres no actual code execution on the client side so its totally platform independant.00:05
mynetdudewell as long as I don't have to have matching server/clients I guess I don't see anything wrong with that00:06
=== Guest93684 is now known as chamunks
mynetdudeso does the included ubuntu rd option act as both the client and server?00:06
mynetdudeor do I still need to get an ubuntu client?00:06
mynetdudenext question is how do I find my IP for the ubuntu laptop?00:07
mynetdudeI'd rather use GUI to find/get that00:07
IndyGunFreakmynetdude: ont he laptop, run ifconfig in a terminal00:07
thrashusjoaopinto yes i've done that aren't i supposed to get a 2048 bit key which would be 256 hex digits? i'm getting some huge file i need the number not some file i don't understand00:07

Shaba2hey mynetdude its great00:09

Herissymmm pizza00:11
mynetdudelol IndyGunFreak00:11

mynetdudehmm00:11
NOmicrosoftSomeone help with getting the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network card working again please! Where has the little network connection icon gone from my upper panel00:11
mynetdudeyeah oh I know why I didn't want to use the ubuntu built in rd option was because copy/paste to windows platforms doesn't work from ubuntu00:12
IndyGunFreakmynetdude: lol, well, it took him a second, but i think he got the message..lol00:12
nickrudNOmicrosoft try   alt-f2  nm-applet --sm-disable00:12
mynetdudeIndyGunFreak indeed, but it was funny with your reply :D00:12
Herissyno microsoft mine worked out of the box with hardy.00:12
IndyGunFreakmynetdude: i guess i'm just a barrel of laughs00:12
nickrudshame on you IndyGunFreak ;P00:12
IndyGunFreaknickrud: whats the --sm-disable switch do?00:13
Shaba2Oh mynetdude Ultra is only for windows00:13
nickrudIndyGunFreak session management disable: I add that cuz the default install uses it. YIAGAM00:13
mynetdudeHerissy my wifi card worked out of the box too... but a day after it did I started having problems... now it works fine I didn't have to fix it00:13
kheskiHello, I have a PCI DVD-RW drive that is not being detected by Ubuntu.  Can someone assist me?00:13
freeswonkhi, is there a program to service an FTP server for ubuntu? or is a native service?00:13
mynetdudeShaba2 I suppose I could wine it or run a VM00:14
Shaba2but is uses all that vnc protocolls00:14
mynetdudeShaba2 but I want to avoid using a VM.. cuz that means installing another OS00:14
mattgyver83Hi room.  After upgrading to hardy after each restart i have to ifdown and ifup my eth0 connection in order to connect to the internet, does anyone know why this is and how to fix it, its pretty annoying.00:14
mattgyver83btw, its a wired connection.00:14
mynetdudeShaba2 well like I said... the ubuntu vino doesn't support copy paste from ubuntu>windows00:14
Herissymynetdude, I never had a problem with mine, the problem I had was with the gnome keyring forgetting my passwords to my connections.00:14
Shaba2so its able to communicat with all other vnc running on other platform00:14
NOmicrosoftMine didnt work out the box- but it work for about 3 weeks after I first ran the update manager (installed drivers). Now its gone again00:14
Shaba2what is vino00:14
kheskiDoes anyone have experience with installing a drive?00:15
kheskiIf it's not being detected at all, is this a jumper issue?00:15
HerissyShaba2, type vino into a terminal and find out.00:15
mynetdudeShaba2 vino is what comes with ubuntu by default00:15
IndyGunFreakkheski: could be, or maybe a problem w/ the ide controller(or sata if its sata)00:15
Herissyif its installed that is.00:16
dfgashttp://www.petitiononline.com/ut3linux/petition.html00:16
mynetdudeHerissy, from what I read it is already included thus installed00:16
mynetdudeHerissy that would be for Hardy Heron00:16
kheskiIndyGunFreal, The primary is in working condition.  The DVD is a secondary that is not detected in Device Manager.00:16
Herissymynetdude, its not here. but my base install was originally kubuntu.00:16
NOmicrosoftHow do i get the wireless network status back onto the panel??00:17
mynetdudeHerissy that could be why, but you can easily get vino if u really wanted00:17
IndyGunFreakkheski: did you just install them?00:17
kheskiNomicrosoft, right click the panel, and "Add to panel"00:17
mynetdudebrb00:17
IndyGunFreakkheski: thats not what he wants00:17
kheskiOh.00:17
NOmicrosoftkheski i looked - couldnt see what i wanted00:17
kheskiIndyGunFreak, no.  But I have never been concerned for the second drive.00:17
Herissymynetdude, ok same question as asked earlier : what is vino? something like good old pico?00:18
IndyGunFreakkheski: so the main hard drive is working?00:18
ybitoi, where can i get pushd for ubuntu? i need it so that maestro http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maestro_(software) will install correctly00:18
IndyGunFreakNOmicrosoft: try opening a terminal and running nm-applet00:18
ybitmaestro isn't in the apt repository00:18
kheskiIndygunfreak, both the primary and secondary hard drives are working.  The primary CD is working, it's simply the secondary CD (Which is DVD RW)00:18
ALPSINChello all00:19
IndyGunFreakkheski: could be a jumper issue, i don't know.. why would you have two optical drivers?00:19
ALPSINChow can i find the company that made my har drive (from the ubuntu live cd)00:19
ybitwell.. it's supposedly is installed.. not sure why maestro thinks otherwise...00:19
ALPSINC*hard drive00:19
kheskiIndyGunFreak, the DVDRW has a slow CD burn time.  And the CDRW obviously doesn;t have DVD capability.00:20
cygokuHey, how can I rename a ntfs external drive without a format ??00:20
IndyGunFreakkheski: don't really know, sounds like a jumper issue though00:20
ALPSINCanyone?00:20
kheskiIndyGunFreak, thank you for your assistance.00:20
mynetdudeI went to look for the RD server on ubuntu, all I see is the RD viewer, I typed vino in terminal and it doesn't exist... though I saw vino being marked as installed in synaptic how the hell do I start a server?00:20
IndyGunFreakkheski: or maybe the cable has pulled loose00:20
ALPSINCahhh nvm00:21
Herissyoh alright I remember what vino is.00:21
HerissyI use vnc viewer.00:21
LifeNomadI am using VNC right now :D00:21
HerissyI use VNC just to restart my dial up connection on my remote box, nothing more lol00:22
mynetdudeah well I'll want VNC so I can tuck the laptop somewhere and do torrenting so its not on my desk00:22
NOmicrosoftIndy what do i type after nm-applet00:22
NOmicrosoft?00:22
IndyGunFreakmynetdude: its just so slow.00:22
mynetdudewhat do I use to start the RD server in hardy ubuntu00:23
ALPSINCok here is another question, how can I clane 2 drives in gparted?00:23
IndyGunFreakNOmicrosoft: nothing.. just type nm-applet then hit enter, and see if the icon comes up in your taskbar00:23
mynetdudeIndyGunFreak its not that slow, its not fast by any means either00:23
dfgasanyone use the orignal unreal tournament in here. if how how did you get it to work. we get lockups and demo at the begin keeps on going through the whole game00:23

xintronHow come the sound doesn't work when I got rhythmbox running and starting vlc (the sound dson't work in vlc)00:24
LunksI'm having some trouble using iptables routing on an Ubuntu server, here's my iptables settings: http://pastebin.com/f1428679700:25
NOmicrosoftIndy, you mean the wireless notification area?00:25
IndyGunFreakxintron: because pulseaudio sucks.00:25
dynamethodi think only one application can use the sound resources at a time, unfortunatly00:25
mynetdudehow do I setup/use the RD server in ubuntu? I don't see an RD server available00:25
IndyGunFreakNOmicrosoft: no..00:25
xintronIndyGunFreak: pulseaudio?00:25
IndyGunFreak!pulseaudio | xintron00:25
ubottuxintron: PulseAudio is a sound server intended as a drop-in replacement for !ESD - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PulseAudio for information and installation instructions00:25

* mynetdude doesn't like xchat's overcomplex scripts00:27
mynetdudewhat do I use to setup an RD server in ubuntu?00:27
kheskiDoes anyone know of any software to burn .nrg files?00:28
IndyGunFreak.nrg?00:28
mynetdudeI thought there was a VNC server already in ubuntu00:28
kheski.nrg is the Nero standard.00:28
NOmicrosoftWell, don't take my notification block without asking next time Indy00:28
kheski.nrg is proprietary .iso00:28
IndyGunFreakNOmicrosoft: wasn't me.. i suspect its the guy pounding on your keyboard00:28
IndyGunFreakkheski: there's a version of nero for linux.. i'm guessing it would00:29
mynetdudebut Nero isn't OSS00:29
kheskiIndygunfreak, by the way I put it just as primary and it works fine.  It's a jumper issue.   Is Nero in the respository?00:29
NOmicrosoftwell im going to log off to test the wireless card and may be back to pound on you if i get no joy00:29
mynetdudehehe00:29
IndyGunFreakmynetdude: this is true, but if you're using a proprietary file format, then you need to be prepared to use a closed source program to use it.00:29
mynetdudetrue00:30
IndyGunFreakkheski: i don't thinkso.00:30
Ahadielmynetdude: Yes, VNC is included with Ubuntu. System => Prefs => Remote Desktop00:30
Herissyhmm00:30
IndyGunFreak!nero00:30
ubottuFactoid nero not found00:30
kheskiIndyGunFreak, do you have experience install the linux Nero?00:30
cygokuHummm, how can I rename a ntfs external drive without a format (gnome) ??00:30
mynetdudeAhadiel thank you...00:30
Herissyremote desktop uses both VNC and rdesktop connections.00:30
mynetdude!iso00:30
ubottuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.00:30
IndyGunFreakkheski: none at all, i've just read about it, i'ma normal linux user and use k3b or gnomebaker00:30
AhadielHerissy: The client yes, but not the server.00:31
kheskiIndyGunFreak, and you've never experience .nrg's?00:31
Herissyindeed just the client.00:31
IndyGunFreakkheski: not 1 time, but i've never used nero.. ever.. even when i was win-tarded00:31

kheskiIndyGunFreak, I have no experience with install .deb or .rpm.00:32
IndyGunFreakkheski: well, if you're on ubuntu, you'll want to find a .deb file00:33
Jewfrokhesk - deps are: dpkg -i packagename.deb00:33
Jewfrokheski, even - above to install .debs00:33
IndyGunFreakkheski: i'm not sure if nero has a "free" linux version00:33
mynetdudeI think you can use .rpm but I think .rpm work differently?00:33
darkmatter7I upgraded to 8.04 from 7.10 yesterday, seems like everything is fine except whenever I click on any menu such as applications, it lights up for a second then either flashes the menu or doesn't come up at all, then goes away in an instant00:33
IndyGunFreak!alien | mynetdude you can, but its a really bad idea00:33
ubottumynetdude you can, but its a really bad idea: RPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous)00:33
Herissynero doesn't00:33
kheskiJewFro, Thank you.00:34
mynetdudeubottu I thought you were a bot?00:34
ubottumynetdude: Error: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)00:34
kheskiJewFro, also though.  It appears there's an automatic deb installer.00:34
IndyGunFreakso kheski if you want it, you'll probably have to buy it.00:34
IndyGunFreakmynetdude: it is a bot.00:34
kheskiIndyGunFreak, I only need it for 2 burns.00:34
Jewfrokheski, oh yeah, forgot about that :)00:34
mynetdudebut it responded to my comment about .rpm00:34
ghindoAfter I attempted to resize my swap space, hibernate stopped working.  How do I get it to start functioning again?00:35
mynetdudethat sucker is so inteligent despite what it thinks00:35
Ahadielmynetdude: [16:33] <IndyGunFreak> !alien | mynetdude you can, but its a really bad idea00:35
mynetdudeoh missed it00:35
Jewfrokheski, there's actually a program in the repos to convert .nrg's to .iso's00:35
Ahadielmynetdude: Usually IRC bot triggers start with a !00:35
mynetdudehence why I like pidgin IRC00:35
IndyGunFreak!ubottu | kheski thats because i know everything.. :)00:35

kheskiIndygunfreak, then what would I be "trying" ?00:36
mynetdudecool I'll brb again00:36
IndyGunFreakkheski: i agree w/ Jewfro .. get on windows and re-rip as iros00:36
IndyGunFreak*isos00:36

kheskiIndygunfreak, I don't currently easily have this capability.00:37

darkmatter7neither work00:37

kheskiIndyGunFreak, JewFro,  for future knowledge The Nero version was simple to install and worked immediately.00:39
grammanybody know of any good guides to using shared libraries in c++?  like, what code do i use to instruct the linker to use a specific library?  do i need to learn make/makefiles?  thanks in advance.00:39
Jewfrokheski, at least there is that00:39
IndyGunFreakkheski: well thats awesome.. is the "try" version gonna work for you?00:39
kheskiIndyGunFreak, as 2x speed.  But yes.00:39
IndyGunFreakwell thast good..00:40

dosh8eri am 'cannot resolve hostname00:40
Jewfrodarkmatter - try adding a new user and log in as that user - see if all is kosher - could be some settings issue00:40
Herissyanother thing you might try is resetting your session.00:41
darkmatter7hmm, I really don't like adding extra users for security reasons00:41
Herissyerr deleteing your old session info and creating a new one.00:41
Jewfrodarkmatter7, remove it after your test - or loginto a diff desktop environment you've not used before even00:41

Shaba1start the ultra vnc server on that machine and you might as well keep it minimize to the taskbar. AND if you are always going to be using it put a shortcut in the startup folder so it startw whenever you turn on the machine01:08
cypher1RiotingPacifist, sorry i did not understand that01:08
dosh8eranyone know how to fix "sudo: unable to resolve host myhost"01:08

RiotingPacifistMatthew: that says that it is being picked up by the x server so the problem must be with gnome/compiz (there is probably a shortct hogging the n key but i dont know anything about gnome so cant help)01:17

FlannelMatthew: So, what it is is a N without the shift key.  Looks like "n" by itself is mapped to something, and then the shift-n isnt. (Not that this gives you a solution, but it certainly helps better understand the problem)01:19

FlannelLeefmc: Uh, I think Istanbul is the popular one.  There's actually a tutorial here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ScreencastTeam/RecordingScreencasts  Although that assumes you're going to do the audio later (well, you're going to stitch the audio together later, I suppose you could always hit record on video/audio at the same time, and then just line them up easily enough, if all else fails)01:22
scobbymy keyshortcuts for chaning resultion dont work anymore, anyone has a tip ??01:22
RiotingPacifist!sudo | Alrekr.01:23
ubottuAlrekr.: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome), or !kdesu (KDE)01:23
FlannelAlrekr: It's pretty easy, instead of cp stuff elsewhere, you just prepend sudo, so it becomes sudo cp stuff elsewhere01:23
MeVsTheVoiceswill02, Ps3 does not support ogg vorbis audio by itself. But it does support the ogg muxer01:23
FlannelAlrekr: If you want to open nautilus as root, you can do that too, with `gksu nautilus`.  Close that window as soon as you're done, as its easy to accidentally break something with a stray mouse click01:23
will02mevsthevoices, if i were to rip a dvd using thoggen into the ogg vorbis format, would the ps3 be able to read that?01:24

pmocan i mix debian packages and ubuntu packages ?02:14
naknomikkwan: gcc complains stdio.h No such file or directory.02:14
mynetdudeMecha25 my new laptop with Vista has an intel GPU so I'm not sure how THAT would do with ubuntu02:14
marshall_sfire, uhh this is gonna take 5+ hours with sftp02:14
jribnaknomik: install build-essential.   It will pull in libc6-dev02:15
mynetdudemarshall_ lol :(02:15
marshall_sfire, it would take like 4 minutes to setup ftp i think02:15
Mecha25mynetdude: Intel chipsets work great, it's all software so there's no proprietary drivers02:15
ALPSINCMecha25: humm... i can't seem to find it02:15
marshall_mynetdude, :(02:15
mynetdudeMecha25 even for 3D?02:15
Herissyintel graphics work great now.02:15
webjames_can someone tell me what is the best external drive to use with Ubuntu, i was thinking WD MyBook II or Seagate Freeagent?02:15
Herissyas of 8.0402:15
kwannaknomik, hmm... maybe you haven't installed glibc.  stdio.h is part of std c.02:15
fookswhats the difference between pulseaudio and alsa?02:15
Mecha25mynetdude: yeah, two of my friends have it, and it works great02:15
Mecha25apsinc: I'll take a look02:15
sfirewebjames_: they will all work02:15
pmocan i mix debian packages and ubuntu packages ?02:16
Bhaveshwbjames: they will work the same, since they be connecting to pc through usb/firewire02:16
IndyGunFreakpmo: not a good idea if you can avoid it.02:16
mynetdudereally? hmm maybe I ought to buy another laptop and put XP back on this blasted one02:16
jahnkeanaterwebjames i would get a 3.5 hard drive case02:16
Herissypmo they would be one in the same.02:16
IndyGunFreakHerissy: not necessarily02:16
Bhaveshpmo: i would not advise to mix them.. it's better to keep them seperate02:16
Herissyubuntu is based on debian02:16
jahnkeanaterthat way any old hard drive laying around you can use as a usb02:16
webjames_okay, thanks guys02:16
IndyGunFreakHerissy: and thats where the similarities end02:16
Bhaveshwebjames_ are you planning on carrying it around? or just keep it stationary?02:16
Herissyfair enough02:16
IndyGunFreakthey are not the same, pure and simple..02:16
jahnkeanater1 sec02:17
Mecha25alpsinc: here you go02:17
pmoi am looking for tightvncserver, but cant find it on ubuntu :(.. but maybe because i am trying hairy02:17
Mecha25aplsinc: http://lifehacker.com/software/linux-tip/take-your-packages-with-you-279533.php02:17
webjames_both the wd mybook and freeagent are around £60 i've got a raid array but it's out of space02:17
offlineIndyGunFreak: but i installed some deb and some ubuntu packages02:17
ALPSINCthanks02:17
IndyGunFreakpmo: its in the repositories02:17
IndyGunFreakoffline: i didn't say it never works... i said its not a good idea, and its generally advised against02:17
webjames_Bhavesh, it'll be still, just can't fit any more drives on my case02:17
jahnkeanateryou use ide or sata02:18
offlineIndyGunFreak : sorry my bad :) i didn't read carefully02:18
pmoIndyGunFreak, i have only hardy on sources.list that is maybe why, thank you..02:18
kwannaknomik, ???02:18
jahnkeanaterwebjames do you use ide or sata02:18
fookswhats the difference between pulseaudio and alsa?02:18
webjames_jahnkeanater,  sata02:18
IndyGunFreakpmo: its in the hardy repositories.. you don't have to add a special repo for it.02:18
Mecha25fooks: pulseaudio runs on top of alsa02:18
naknomikkwan: installing build-essential solved the problem. Thanks jrib02:19
IndyGunFreakpulse is buggy and annoying.. alsa generally works02:19
thundarris oveclocking with ubuntu possible??02:19
Mecha25fooks: it's all kinda complicated, you can do anything with it but it's not simple02:19
onthefence928hey how do i recover old "copied" text?02:19
pmoIndyGunFreak, then becaose i have only "main" :)02:19
jahnkeanaterdo you have a hard drive that you dont use any where02:19
dirtbagHi all, did ubuntu 8 take out that program that allows you to look at your files on a windows partition?02:19
fooksMecha25, hmm i see02:19
Flannelthundarr: overclocking is something you do on the hardware level, OSes have nothing to do with it02:19
fooksMecha25, does it get interrupted when you run jack audio?02:19
onthefence928does gnome have a built-in clipboard that will store recent copied text?02:19
fooksMecha25, or can you run jack audio on top of it?02:19
dmsupermanonthefence928, ...ctrl + c && ctrl + v02:19
Mecha25fooks: yes!  it does interrupt it on my machine, there is a way to interface the two but it's too complicated for me to look into02:20
webjames_jahnkeanater, iv'e got a case with 6 drives in it, however they're in a raid array, totalling 1tb, if i got a caddy i could only put one drive in there02:20
thundarrflannel:  I understand that I must oveclock in my bios...02:20
Bhaveshwebjames_ look for a cheap hdd on sale and a case, and put an external drive together02:20
dmsupermanonthefence928, you're looking for "glipx"02:20
dmsupermanonthefence928, it keeps a clipboard history, very handy02:20
jahnkeanaterwebjames http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?p=HD-389SATA&c=fr&pid=78ea1253aacbda64adf2da3f8e38356af4b6e1ade711defb7febe133a3c9953002:20
Bhaveshwow that's a lot of space02:20
fooksMecha25, oh hmm02:20
Mecha25fooks: what you end up doing is making jack accept alsa out as an input02:20
onthefence928dmsuperman: yeah, but i overwrote something with ctrl-c by accident, so i need it back02:20
jahnkeanateryou can buy a sata drive for this02:20
Flannelthundarr: That's one way, yes.02:20
dmsupermanonthefence928, I believe it's in the repos, look in synaptic for "glipx"02:20
Bhaveshi am building my first raide :)02:20
fooksMecha25, i read that teamspeak3 is going to be based on pulseaudio02:20
dmsupermanonthefence928, if you don't already have glipx installed then what you already overwrote is gone02:20
thundarrflannel:  when I change the fsb in the bios...system monitor does not show any difference in clock speed02:20
BhaveshRAID even02:20
Mecha25fooks: pulseaudio by itself works amazingly well in my experience02:21
jahnkeanaterthat is a cheap sata case enclosure02:21
fritzophrenicso, where would I report a problem with the documentation?02:21
fooksMecha25, whats noticably different?02:21
Mecha25fooks: the only thing that doesn't play well with the whole system is Jack, and that's because it works on a totally different principle02:21
thundarrso what do I have to do so that the overclocking shows up/works02:21
webjames_Bhavesh, good luck, i went with a hardware controller so i can dual boot of the same array. but software is more flexable02:21
IndyGunFreakdamn, $10 for an enclosure,thats alarmingly cheap...02:21
nickrudfritzophrenic which documentation?02:21
fritzophrenichttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#head-5aac3daad4eb9fcc3502ba1a4d6891b71b050b1d02:22
Mecha25fooks: by default, unless you want to do heavy duty Jack work, you shouldn't need to change anything.  The only caveat I've found is you can't have Jack and Alsa share your speakers, without some major changes.  other than that, everything kinda just works02:22
Herissyone of these days Ill figure out how to get a higher connection speed than 24.4kb/sec on dial-up.02:22
thundarrflannel:  is there something that I am missing02:22
webjames_jahnkeanater, i've found that a drive + caddy is only a few pounds cheaper, and i don't get a nice warranty02:22
fritzophrenica) doesn't work (Windows shows size 9GB, size on disk 200MB) and b) doesn't tell how to get it to mount02:22
IndyGunFreakwebjames_: this is true, but if you've already got drives sitting around, enclosures are awesome.02:22
shawnr34did an update break amarok's ipod detection>02:23
shawnr34?02:23
Bhaveshwebjames_ the server i will be running RAID on is strictly linux02:23
sazmavarious lvm-related man pages and the wikipedia entry for Linux' LVM say that it supports mirroring of LV's... any pointers to documentation? I don't see an lvchange -m 2 option02:23
nickrudfritzophrenic having trouble loading02:23
IndyGunFreakshawnr34: don't think so..02:23
shawnr34I used to be able to plug in my ipod and it would auto detect it, its not working anymore. the ipod is connected and mounted... i can browse it02:23
Flannelthundarr: I don't know, I've never had problems with just BIOS/hardware modification.02:23
shawnr34can anyone help me out with this?02:23
thundarrflannel:  thanks anyway02:24
Flannelthundarr: Looks like powertweak could help02:24
webjames_Bhavesh, i'd go software then, you can do it from the alternate install cd. i've got 4disks in raid5 1tb, and 2 disks in raid 1 120gbs for my os02:24
IndyGunFreakshawnr34: so its connected and mounted, what is the problem?02:24
robbiet480how can i override the BAD PASSWORD: Dictionary word error message?02:24
thundarrflannel: powertweak... can that be installed through the terminal02:24
shawnr34IndyGunFreak, amarok doesn't see it02:24
IndyGunFreakshawnr34: so configure amarok to see it.02:25
thundarrflannel: or do I have to get it from somewhere else02:25
Flannelthundarr: Yeah.  sudo apt-get install powertweak02:25
webjames_shawnr34, did you update the ipod firmware?02:25
Mecha25shawnr34: you have to use the Amarok iPod plugin02:25
shawnr34webjames_, no02:25
robbiet480how can i override the BAD PASSWORD: Dictionary word error message? I am using LDAP authentication...02:25
webjames_shawnr34, what gen is the ipod, has it worked before?02:25
onthefence928if only comeone figured out how to support teh zune from linux02:25
shawnr34webjames_, yes many times in amarok and rhythmbox02:26
IndyGunFreakonthefence928: i'm pretty sure the zune works out of the box w/ Ubuntu02:26
nickrudfritzophrenic well since I dispise the whole concept of wubi I won't be trying to fix that, and second, you can fix it yourself02:26
webjames_shawnr34, have you tried putting it in disk mode?02:26
nickrudfritzophrenic it's a wiki :)02:26
mroci need help getting grub back properly.  i installed windows after ubuntu and now it boots xp directly.  what's the proper way to fix this?02:26
robbiet480no one help?02:26
Mecha25nickrud, wubi is amazing, but I wish people would learn more about it instead of thinking they have completely installed Ubuntu02:26
Bhaveshwebjames_ very nice.. and thanks for info.. for now i in process of getting a replacement server running ubuntu  instead of debian, but mine will not be as much space as yours.. probably 200GB mirrored02:26
WalloOonthefence928, why not supporting linux from the zune instead? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7bZyBSh2tQ02:27
fritzophrenicI'd love to, if I knew how...maybe someone on #windows can figure out how to at least get Windows to recognize the correct file size...02:27
shawnr34webjames_, it actually was working in rhythmbox, but rhythmbox would open and not amarok, i only use amarok so i just uninstalled rhythmbox. but amarok still doesn't see it02:27
webjames_Bhavesh, well it's whatever you need, good luck02:27
nickrudfritzophrenic could be that the disk isn't actually using that space yet; it's probably a virtual disk that expands on use02:27
nickrudfritzophrenic but hey, that's just guessing ;)02:28
webjames_shawnr34, i'm not sure i use exaile with the ipod plugin02:28
fritzophreniccould be...though the one Wubi created uses the full 5 GB I gave it02:28
shawnr34webjames_, never had to put it in disk mode before...02:28
fritzophrenicbut now I want to see if any of my games work and how hard it is to get them to do so, and I need more space02:28
Flannelfritzophrenic: You should probably try asking in the wubi forums (I don't believe they have an IRC channel): http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=23402:28
IndyGunFreakshawnr34: if the ipod worked in rhythmbox before you removed it, then the issue isnt' the ipod, its clearly the settings in amarok.02:28
ZaidenIn my previous installations, I was able to somehow have esd as a sound option in the sound settings. Would anyone know how to do this without installing the esd package?02:28
fritzophrenicoooo thanks Flannel02:28
IndyGunFreakhave you added the device?02:29
webjames_shawnr34, perhaps try it with rhythmbox again02:29
shawnr34IndyGunFreak, thats what i was thinking but can't figure it out...02:29
nickrudZaiden esd has been replaced with pulse audio ...02:29
thundarrflannel:  after I install powertweak...where am I supposed to find it???02:29
IndyGunFreakshawnr34: open amarok.. and make sure your ipod is plugged in02:29
shawnr34webjames_, rhythmbox doesn't do album art right02:29
IndyGunFreakshawnr34: do you have your ipod plugged in and amarok open?02:30
nickrudI was totally amazed at rhythmbox's easy ipod support (besides the art, but I can live with that)02:30
shawnr34IndyGunFreak, yes02:30
Cronikare there any ip/icmp options that linux uses that windows doesn't for tcp transfers?02:30
IndyGunFreakclick settings/configure amarok/media devices02:30
Flannelthundarr: gpowertweak is a gnome thing.  It looks like it *should* be in your menu somewhere02:30
=== kupesoft_ is now known as kupesoft
nickrudthundarr I think it ended up in system tools the time I installed it02:31
ZaidenWhat would be the best sound option if I can't use PulseAudio?02:31
shawnr34IndyGunFreak, you know what.. i just plugged in my thumbdrive... amarok used to always ask me if it should handle it. it doesn't and its not in the list of avail media devices02:31
IndyGunFreakZaiden: alsa?02:31
mrocsorry if i'm being impatient, but i have limited time to fix this.  i installed xp after ubuntu.  how do i get grub back?02:31
jrib!grub > mroc (read the private message from ubottu)02:32
IndyGunFreakshawnr34: is your ipod plugged in?02:32
IndyGunFreaki don't care if amarok sees your thumbdrive02:32
mrocthanks jrib02:32
Flannelmroc: first link in the private message ubottu sent, at that.02:32
WalloOhello all, what should you be interrested in monitoring on your computer you can't currently do using standard monitoring software. I'm looking for new ideas. Monitoring temperature (hdd, cpu, chipt video card), fan speed, voltage, cpu freqency, network speed, connected wifi, battery, memory, controling fan speed, video card overclock are already supported). Please, give me some suggestions.02:32
shawnr34IndyGunFreak, yes it is02:32
IndyGunFreakthen try auto detecting it.. see if that works02:32
FlannelWalloO: #ubuntu-offtopic would be the place for that, not here.  Thanks02:32
nickrudWalloO monitoring the monitoring software?02:32
webjames_shawnr34, i'm not really sure. i haven't used my ipod since it packed-up last month, i never used amrok or rhythmbox. i though it could be a hardware issue - but it's not obviously, if you think you messed up your amrok config files you could delete them and start again02:33
WalloOnickrud, good idea... :)02:33
Drk_GuyHi guys02:34
Drk_GuyUbuntu won't recognize my gamepad's dpad02:34
WalloOFlannel, since I was here, I just asked... someone with a good idea can be anywhere... :) But I will follow your suggestion02:34
shawnr34IndyGunFreak, amarok is open and plugged in02:34
IndyGunFreakshawnr34: ok, did you do what i said?02:34

mynetdudewell I'm bummed that I can't access window shares via Picasa02:36
mynetdudecuz I know picasa can do it via windows via mapped drives02:36
IndyGunFreakshawnr34: you'll have to manually mount it in amarok.02:36
Drk_GuyHelp, ubuntu won't recognize my dpad02:36
mynetdudehow does ubuntu handle NAS?02:37
flaccid_mynetdude: depends on the protocol the NAS supports02:37
dmsupermanmynetdude, NFS and SMB :D02:37
mynetdudemebe I should get one of those usb>ethernet adapters :P02:37
WalloOmynetdude, there is a difference between mouting shared disk and accessing shared disk from gnome (nautilus). If ytou mount the shared drive, it should work02:37
mynetdudeNFS?02:37
flaccid_mynetdude: check your doco of the NAS to see what protocols it can do02:38
flaccid_it may not do NFS at all02:38
flaccid_i am following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager/CompizFusion#head-3f62aec4d410bb7d9a17dc47f6b04f73638dc368 which shows how to svn the themes. where do the themes go and how can i use them, is there a stop missing?02:38
mynetdudeWalloO yeah I know there's a difference between mounting shared disk vs accessing shared disk02:38
dabaRmynetdude: how have you been connecting to it so far?02:38
mynetdudeI don't have a NAS, thats why I thought maybe pulling the HDD out of the USB enclosure putting it into an NAS enclosure instead02:39
mynetduderight now my HDD is attached via USB to the windows box and it is shared to the network02:39
dabaRmynetdude: a NAS enclosure? Like an external HD?02:39

mynetdudenetwork attached storage, yeah you can buy diskless NAS02:39
mynetdudelook, all I know is that linux doesn't use drive letters... I'm trying to make some sense of this02:40
mynetdudeI can access the windows share from the ubuntu nautilus just fine02:40
mynetdudebut picasa doesn't see it02:40
Flannelmynetdude: that's because its not actually in the filesystem02:41
flaccid_stuff it i'll use feisty repos. the compiz fusion page really needs an update02:41
mynetdudewhats not?02:41
offlineubuntu also won't recognize an externel (actually, a PC dvd drive connected via usb to laptop) optical drive on laptop02:41
Flannelmynetdude: Your share02:41
Drk_GuyHelp, ubuntu wont grab my gamepad's dpad02:41
WalloOmynetdude, nautilus don't mount disk. Since picasa do not use gnome file system library, you can't that way.02:41
Flannelmynetdude: But as was previously said, if you put it in your fstab, it'll work fine02:41
WalloOMount the remote share in a folder (command line not gnome), and it may work02:42
mcquaidmynetdude, yeah use fstab02:42
mynetdudeWalloO ok so nautilus doesn't mount, then why is it mounted? (I can unmount it via right click)02:42
mynetdudewhats fstab?02:42
mynetdudesorry I missed some of that02:42
dabaRmynetdude: is it mounted somewhere? maybe in /media02:42
flaccid_!fstab | mynetdude02:42
ubottumynetdude: The /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions02:42
colaserHi, I'm having sound problems on a Santa Rosa Macbook. The sound worked perfectly at one point, but something stopped it from working except with OSS; ALSA, ESD, etc. didn't work. Now I've upgraded to Hardy and I'm getting no sound at all. How do I fix this?02:42
Flannelmynetdude: It uses a separate mounting method, basically gnome mounts it for gnome.  But anything that doesn't use gnome specific volume management wont see it.02:42
WalloOmynetdude, ok. It's mounted in which folder?02:43
mynetdudenautilus shows it mounted and it says E02:43
WalloOmynetdude, can you see it in /etc/mtab?02:43

dabaRcraigbass1976: that will start up the login screen on boot, afaik.02:45
WalloOmycroftiv, it uses wine lib because it's windows code, and they used winelib to port it quickly02:45
craigbass1976dabaR, sounds good02:45
mynetdudedon't have a /etc/mtab/02:45
WalloOmynetdude, mount your share using the mount command, and it will work.02:45
craigbass1976dabaR, does init 6 work?02:45
dabaRmynetdude: run sudo mount, that will tell you everything that is mounted, afaik.02:45

ads_dabaR: ok ill try that thanks02:49
WalloOinstalled02:49
dabaRmynetdude: but not the one that is external, if I understand correctly, right?02:49
mizaiLeefmc, "not free" doesn't mean "doesn't work"02:49
ALPSINChow does one edit the sudoers file with nano?02:50
FlannelALPSINC: sudo visudo02:50
colaserArgh. I'm going to have to go. I'll try again later.02:50
Leefmcmizai: True, but it does mean limited.02:50
Dasmooveralpsinc: sudo nano02:50
Leefmcmizai: At the very least.02:50
mynetdudedabaR gprep? Should gprep see externally mounted drives?  I did sudo mount, it doesn't see anything but sda102:50
stroyan`ads_: The trouble may be a user configuration file rather than a global config.  You could use the useradd command from the text console to make a new user account then try logging in to that.02:50
ALPSINCFlannel: if i do that it opens with vim, which I hate...02:50
ALPSINCi need nano :P02:50
dabaRmynetdude: never heard of gprep02:50
FlannelALPSINC: Its not like you'll be doing a whole lot of editing.  But, visudo uses EDITOR I believe.02:51
mynetdudeerr gprep=gparted sorry02:51
alberto_hey guys do someone know how to change my (second screen) TV position? something like the offset thanks...02:51
ALPSINCFlannel: ahh ok02:51
WalloOLeefmc, there is no shareware in ubuntu... That's it that's all02:51
mynetdudedabaR like I said sudo mount only shows sda1, but gparted shows sda1, 2, and 502:51
mynetdudedabaR there's other info, but nothing that looks like mounted network shares02:51
LeefmcWalloO: So if its not a limited version, what does "not free" mean in this case?02:51
mizaiLeefmc, no source available02:52
Leefmchuh..02:52
mynetdudenot free meanse its not OSS02:52
mynetduderight?02:52
Leefmcodd way of saying closed source heh02:52
CtrlZftwanyone know how i can force hardy to use the ATI Driver, instead of the MESA 3D02:52
FlannelLeefmc: Or restricted distribution rights02:52
mynetdudeLeefmc my thoughts exactly02:52
FlannelLeefmc: Its not necessarily closed source.02:52
WalloOLeefmc, where is written "non free" in unrar?02:52
LeefmcFlannel: That one would make sense02:52
LeefmcWalloO: Synaptic02:52
bpgoldsbI'm looking to setup a cronjob to email me of any outstanding package updates on my Ubuntu/Debian machines.  Anyone know of a package that can do this?  I'm figuring someone already wrote one.02:52
mizaiLeefmc, actually I take that back, I just did apt-get source unrar02:52
mizaiLeefmc, Flannel is probably right02:53
mynetdudedabaR so even if I can mount the share that doesn't mean picasa may even see it02:53
dabaRmynetdude: so, you just open that nautilus, and the network share is there?02:53
mynetdudedabaR thats right02:53
stroyan`ALPSINC, Flannel: "man visudo" spells it out.  You need to set "env_editor" in the sudoers file to allow alternate editors from the EDITOR environment variable.02:53
mynetdudeand then I double click the share I want and login, and then it appears on my desktop mounted02:53
dabaRmynetdude: and wth is picasa, is it in a browser, or an app in your computer02:53
=== Cynical_ is now known as Herissy
mynetdudepicasa is a photo gallery app02:53
WalloOLeefmc, it should be a non open source one maybe. However, install the free one if you prefer.02:54
ALPSINCstroyan`: ahh ok thanks!02:54
Herissygeesus. this server doesn't kill ghosts.02:54
LeefmcWalloO: I dont care, i was just trying to understand what part of it wasn't free heh02:54
dabaRmynetdude: the online version or the offline version?02:54
mynetdudeHerissy no it doesn't, but the user can02:54
mynetdudedabaR offline02:54
Herissyit should. imho02:54
mynetdudedabaR, I have it for windows and it can access mapped drives02:54
dabaRmynetdude: and it can not see a mounted drive?02:55
WalloOLeefmc, I don't know. I think it's just not opensource02:55
Herissysome ping clients and when they get no response it kills the connection.02:55
Dasmoovercan anyone help me out with my xsession? http://pastebin.org/4547102:55
dabaRmynetdude: and you are using a version for Ubuntu now, right?02:55
WalloOmynetdude, it's normal you can't see it on your desktop. this is a virtual shortcut02:55
WalloOmynetdude, it exists only in gnome02:55
shingalate1mynetdude, if it is a wine app run winecfg and assign a drive letter the the mount point02:56
mynetdudedabaR no picasa isn't seeing anything but the filesystem drives02:56
mynetdudeactually linux doesn't use "drives"02:56
jameslrI think It's because unrar has its own license agreement. That's why it's non-free02:56
Herissythey are mount points.02:56
mynetdudeHerissy right02:56
stroyan`ALPSINC: "man sudoers" has more details.  You can set the "editor" variable in /etc/sudoers to a specific list of allowed editors.02:56
mynetdudewell how do I make a mount point for a share then? :P02:56
dabaRmynetdude: and you can not find it anywhere in the filesystem, such as /media?02:56
WalloOmynetdude, mount the samba share in a folder using mount command, then go in it with picasa. It's as simple as it.02:57
shingalate1well it uses mountpoints so you could assign the mountpoint to a drive letter in wine02:57
dabaRmynetdude: perhaps the properties of th shortcut on the desktop contain a clue02:57
Flannelmynetdude: mkdir (its just a directory)02:57
ALPSINCstroyan`: yes, I saw, thanks :)02:57
mynetdudeWalloO alright that sounds like a good way to do it02:57
offlinehow can i change mcaddress on ubuntu ? coz the last time i changed it, i got no connectivity at all02:57
jameslroffline: first question: Why are you changing your mac address?02:58
mynetdudedabaR I looked at that, it doesn't so I went to the network places in ubuntu and got properties from that02:58
WalloOmynetdude, It's what I'm saying you since the beginning. You need to install smbfs to do that : sudo apt-get install smbfs02:58
mynetdudelet me see if /media has anything02:58
penoffline: don't ask here, no one will give out the instructions, try google02:58
WalloOoffline, it's bad to do that02:58
dabaRoffline: a MAC address?02:58
WalloOoffline, maybe you can using ifconfig or macchanger02:59
shingalate1there are legitimate reasons to change a MAC address02:59

isaacj87hi all, I have numerous questions...first I don't understand the firefox situation in Ubuntu. Last update I got to firefox was RC2, but I saw an RC3 released on mozilla.org and then finally the "final" release...Was RC2 the final release?04:42

iotaBecause ubuntu treats my IDE hd as a SCSI drive ( it is the primary drive on the first IDE channel and shows up as /dev/sda)m I can not use my existing windows partition as a guest in vmware. I either need to make my harddrive show up as /dev/hda so vmware can use it as an IDE device. Or figure out how to make vmware use the IDE drive that is treated as a SCSI drive, as an IDE drive. :-/  Or I suppose I could leave everything alone, and make04:45

ubottuALPSINC: VNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX06:14
happosadewhat mean "OEM-install"?06:15
kcormier1Jburrke: Try copying the files from linux to your windows drive (linux can see ntfs) rather than getting to your linux drive from windows...then you can test em out06:15
Lokii-!oem | happosade06:15
ubottuhapposade: Ubuntu can be installed in lots of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DapperReleaseNotes/UbiquityKnownIssues - Don't want to use a CD? Try http://tinyurl.com/3exghs - See also !automate06:15
ALPSINCLokii-: i've been folowing the ssh over vnc tut listed, with 0 success06:15
Flannelhapposade: You don't set up a first user during the install, so you (as a mfc) can edit the system how you want, and then let your customer do it06:15
unavailablehapposade oem install means "original equipment manufacturer"  its for places like asus and such06:15

JburrkeYep, I get some error when I dont have the drive plugged in.. When it's in I get a grub menu that allows me to pick between ubuntu and windows, though..06:19
mynetdudeALPSINC ok so what VNC server are you using and what are you using as the viewer? (not that these matter) and are they cross platform?06:19
unavailablefooks hmm nope06:20
unavailablefooks you sure your ejecting the right dev?06:20
nickrudJburrke download the supergrub disk, it has a utility to make your primary boot again to windows. Then you should be able to boot ubuntu with the external plugged in, and windows without it plugged in06:20
mynetdudeALPSINC, oh you're trying to go over SSH, that I don't know how to do06:20
ALPSINCmynetdude: xtightvnc and VNC Viewer for windows, Enterprise06:20

ALPSINCmynetdude: my friend let me borrow the cd :P06:21
mynetdudeALPSINC err again I'm not familiar with doing it with SSH so I have no idea what you were sputternig about localhost... when I do it I just enter the local IP or the public IP with port forwarding06:21

unavailablefooks actually go to /media06:22

mynetdudeALPSINC as I said... I can't help you, you're trying to use SSH protocols which I know jack about06:26
nickrudJburrke no, what will happen is it will rewrite the mbr of the drive in the machine to boot windows.06:26
ryan_my compiz fusion makes open gl flicker. is that a known issue with ati cards or is there a easy fix?06:26

nickrudJburrke one you've done that, you won't need the cd anymore06:27
Jburrkenicrud, At that point could I just wipe everything off my extrnl drive?06:27
xTOGxhello06:27
nickrudJburrke yep. I got the impression that's what you wanted to do.06:27
xTOGxi'm running xubuntu, i'm a new linux user, how do i get my sound to work06:27
dtrixedbazhang thanks06:28
mynetdudeALPSINC never heard of it, but I've seen X11vnc though... btw don't you know that ubuntu already comes with a remote desktop server and viewer?06:28
Jburrkenickrud: Pretty much.. So doing this will allow me to boot windows normally and wipe linux from my external with no problem?06:28
ALPSINCmynetdude: i'm using xbuntu... for a server enviroment06:28
dtrixedgod i love the ability of being able to just apt-get somthing...06:28
nickrudJburrke yes. The key is getting your main hard drive back to booting windows, and supergrubdisk will do that06:28
dtrixedno waiting or hunting down a site for it06:28
ganymederyan_: it's a known issuse and cannot be fixed easily. might be fixed one year from now via DRI206:28
ryan_ok thanks06:28
Jburrkenickrud: Cool, so once I wipe my external will windows recognize the disk when I plug it in?06:29
ganymederyan_: both compiz and the opengl app are rendering to the same part of the screen so they're fighting between who gets to be seen06:29

AussieBobbyProblem:I have some folders that have a lock icon above them and I'm unable to delete them.These are on a usb HD and they are microsoft that apps that I no longer need06:30
nickrudJburrke you would need to reformat it as ntfs but then windows would recognize it. For help in returning it to ntfs, you'd want to go to #windows06:30
BHSPitLappyryan_, start typing it and hit TAB06:30

kmicinskihttp://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-765379.html06:31
unavailablenickrud jburrke its actually ##windows06:31
ryan_i've never used irc before because i always confused it with the crummy icq06:31
nickrudJburrke the reason windows doesn't recognize it is it's an ext3 file type, and windows can't read that without a plugin. Simply reformat it in windows06:32
JburrkeThanks unavailable06:32
ALPSINCunavailable: http://www.realvnc.com/products/download.html << i had a cd that my friend let me have >.<06:32

ryan_xTOGx, do you have a volume icon by the clock?06:34
Jburrkenickrud: Yeah I got that, what I mean is will I be able to do whatever I need to do with the drive from windows since it isn't being recognized at the moment.. I mean am I gonna be able to reformat it to ntfs or w/e if it's not even being recognized because it's e3 or w/e?06:34

BHSPitLappyaCCI, that's just a mock-up07:03
rainabbaIn the past, I used Compiz-Fusion-Icon to load Compiz and with 8.04 it seems that I have to use the Appearance-Effects panel to enable it. Should that be the case? Is there any reason I wouldn't want to use one over the other? I'm asking because I found that the way compiz is launching now, if I use the icon to do "reload-window-manager", things go hell and get ugly.07:03
BHSPitLappyaCCI, looks to be a concept for an ubuntu-mobile design07:04
aCCImock-up?07:04
mynetdudentolo you'd need to setup shares of course, thats the only way AFAIK for ubuntu to access other machines07:04
BHSPitLappyaCCI, a concept drawing07:04

wols_nubuntu: if you have a cli you already have a terminal...07:47
saint-takeshimynetdude: if it's not in the repos, then either compile from source (usually painless) or wait.07:47
wols_saint-takeshi: it's NOT painless for someone who doesn't know. if it's not yet it will be when he upgrades07:48
mynetdudesaint-takeshi compilation doesn't sound like a bad idea... except for the fact that I'm not sure I'd have to remove the old version or not?07:48
mynetdudeyeah its easier to manage repos than compiling anyway... compiling doesn't sound easy07:48
orpheanmynetdude: if you aren't experienced with things breaking I would really recommend not compiling.07:49
saint-takeshimynetdude: yeah, probably best to just leave it, then...07:49

BogaurdI have a headless machine which seems to run fine, then after 20 days or so it'll seemingly randomly hang, doesnt seem to be anything in the logs. Any ideas on what could be causing it?07:50
wols_MoreOvaltine: my idea is it's a useless error description07:50
mynetdudehardy heron WITH xfce? interesting...07:51
saint-takeshimynetdude: he doesn't have a panel. that's the whole problem.07:51
mynetdudesaint-takeshi ah07:51
saint-takeshinubuntu: alt+F2, then type xterm in the little box an voila! you have a terminal.07:51
MoreOvaltineIm guessing all the visual effects won't work on Ye Olde computer07:51
StephenZSheesh. And now the torrent is hard to find.07:52
nubuntuwols_: no, i said i was launching by clicking on the filesystem icon on the desktop07:52
mynetdudeMoreOvaltine well I suppose if you had the Kubuntu with xfce it would run pretty fast from what I understand07:52
StephenZWhat's the difference between KDE and GNOME?07:52
StephenZTo a layman like myself.07:52
mynetdudenubuntu how do you even get to the filesystem if you have no panels?07:52
wols_the name07:52
saint-takeshiwols_: i'm not sure he IS starting things through the terminal...i thought he said he was using the file browser to go to /usr/bin07:52
StarnestommyStephenZ: KDE is more like Windows in its design07:52
mynetdudesaint-takeshi yeah he just did say that07:53
orpheanStephenZ: They do essentially the same thing. KDE is a bit more configurable, and GNOME strives to be more user friendly.07:53
Dr-Pepsi_I need Help!07:53
blackfriarcorrection KDE is more like windows in its look07:53
MoreOvaltineLol07:53
mynetdudeso KDE looks more like windows, more configurable which !=user friendly... hmm07:54
MoreOvaltineShould i downgrade to Dapper or Feisty, because I don't know how to make this thing go any faster.07:54
saint-takeshiStephenZ: gnome feels like a cross between MacOS and the old Amiga Workbench...KDE feels like Windows 200007:54
mynetdudewonder how friendly REactos is :P07:54
Dr-Pepsi_How do I share my printer that is using Ubuntu with a Windows Computer over a Network?07:54
nubuntumynetdude: i have an icon for the filesystem on the desktop, i think it's always there on xubuntu07:54
mynetdudeMoreOvaltine you might like kubuntu if you want the xfce07:54
StarnestommyDr-Pepsi_: I think samba can share printers07:54
Ace2016_kde is easier to use and has more options to configure it, gnome drives me mad every time i go in it, i miss all the options07:54
StephenZFor someone like myself, with no experience with any Linux system, but extensive experience on Windows and who can probably pick up on how things work relatively well... Which would one suggest?07:55
MoreOvaltineI installed xfce already, it just didn't make a difference in peformance.07:55
magnetronDr-Pepsi_: first, make the printer work locally. then yo install samba07:55
Dr-Pepsiok07:55

Slartaaron_: ok.. let's try this then.. open a  terminal and run this "sudo apt-get install --reinstall flashplugin-nonfree"08:25

Slartaaron_: so it works now?08:26
saint-takeshinubuntu: try invoking gnome-panel from terminal?08:26
Slartnubuntu: what happens if you run this "pkill gnome-panel; gnome-panel"08:26
nubuntusaint-takeshi: um, so, do you remember what the fix was?08:26
aaron_yep it would seem so lol08:27
Slartnubuntu: the first part just kills off any old gnome-panel processes.. then it runs them again08:27
saint-takeshinubuntu: i think i just cried and banged my head off the monitor until i could be bothered reinstalling from scratch, to ne honest....that's my usual trick.08:27
saint-takeshibe*08:28
nubuntuslart: exactly as you wrote it? pkill gnome-panel; gnome-panel ?08:29
Slartnubuntu: yes.. you can copy paste it08:29
nubuntusaint-takeshi: this IS a fresh install!!! :(08:29
saint-takeshinubuntu: (tip: it's shift+insert to paste into terminal)08:29
nubuntuslart: ok, i try08:30

saint-takeshinubuntu: that's weird...you update your video driver and it removes gnome-panel?08:34

Slartjscinoz: do you have lots of addons? are all site slow? flash? java? It doesn't seem slow for me but I don't really have anything to compare with08:39
pixel683jscinoz: linux tends to lose out when it comes to graphics + rendering, that's likely your issue08:39
JustANameI'm pretty knowledgeable about linux and programming, et al. I just don't know anything about how a wacom setup is supposed to work with X08:39

jscinoz_pixel683, but its just firefox?08:39
jscinoz_pixel683, could it be something to do with i/o? as it seems to use the disk a lot more than other apps08:40

AeronTGUhm, yeah, sure I can .... dude ..... remove this frigging download and start all over 192mb on dialup :(09:23
DistroJockeyne2k__, if you do   cat /proc/cpuinfo   you may be able to tell if it's 64bit by the flags or other identifiers (can't check, only have 32bit)09:23
AeronTGgwget sucks, i think09:24
nubuntuin general, with open source products, where do you go to get source code?  is there a grand repository somewhere?09:24
DistroJockeyne2k__, as for 64bit on 32bit hardware, I doubt you will get far09:24
ne2k__DistroJockey: sure can, but like you, I don't know how to interpret those flags ;-) clflush size = 64, cache_alignment = 64, address sizes = 36 bits physical, 48 bits virtual09:25
Starnestommynubuntu: the project normally will tell you where to either download an archive or the sources or tell you where its version control repo is09:25
Starnestommyne2k__: that looks like 64-bit09:25

nubuntuStarnestommy: ok, thanks09:26
ne2k__DistroJockey: interestingly, the model name says it's a 2.2GHz processor, and the CPU MHz value is 1200.00009:26
glitsj16cozierfamily: yes, you can make a backup too and try to logout / login to check if it helped to solve the freezing issues09:27
Ginne2k__, probably because you are using cpu freq scaling09:27
ne2k__Gin: which means?09:27
c0nfl|ct bom dia09:27
DistroJockeyne2k__, well Intel says Intel® EM64T  for that one.  I'm guessing it's speedstepped atm09:27
Ginmeans the freq goes up only when the OS needs it09:27
ne2k__Gin: that's clever. less CO_2 emissions09:28
wols_it's clever since it's less heat mainly09:28
Ginne2k__, cpu freq scaling has been around for years now :\09:28
DistroJockeyne2k__, http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLA9509:28

LoganPaynepossiblebit: no but let me know how it works out...I have some issues with the sound in WoW11:02
PossibleBitLoganPayne: Sound plays smoothly in wineapps for me <.y11:02
LoganPaynePossibleBit: I hear WoW fine. It's just I can't use rythmnbox while using wine11:03
PossibleBitLoganPayne: have you configured your Alsa to use pulse as a audiodevice?11:03
qwerty121hi! i am new to hardy. After i installed it on my hdd, i tried to install build-essential from the cd by "sudo apt-get install build-essential" but it's asking me to put the cd in the cd rom whereas it's already there. Someone please help me...11:04
PossibleBitqwerty121: just remove the CD from your reps11:04
LoganPaynePossibleBit: if this is one of those if you have to ask then you didn't...I didn't11:04
PossibleBitokay.11:04
PossibleBitqwerty121:  go to system - Administration - Software Sources and untick the CD-Rom Box11:04
qwerty121PossibleBit: then?11:05
PossibleBitretry installing the package11:05
* LoganPayne is somewhat new to Ubuntu...or for that matter *nix11:05
PossibleBitLoganPayne: Install libasound2-plugins and asoundconf-gtk11:05
qwerty121PossibleBit: keeping the Cd in the cdrom?11:05
PossibleBitnah11:05
PossibleBitit should fetch it via internet then11:06
LoganPaynewhat are these packages for11:06
PossibleBitnot quite sure. But when you run asoundconf-gtk afterwards, you should be able to choose pulse as your ALSA card.11:06
PossibleBitLoganPayne: Just figured out, the plugins allow you to use pulse as your ALSA device.11:07
anirudh0hi..windows does'nt show up in grub menu...my menu.lst is here http://pastebin.com/m1c99581311:07
qwerty121PossibleBit: yap! it's working thanks. what was the problem with it, btw/11:07
PossibleBitWell qwerty121: APT tried to get the package from your CD, instead of the internet.11:07
anirudh0my gparted screenshot is at http://img162.imageshack.us/img162/4195/screenshotvc6.png11:07
PossibleBitLoganPayne: tell me if that makes any difference.11:08
qwerty121PossibleBit: but in the previous releases of Ubuntu, it used to be in the CD11:08
LoganPaynePossibleBit: will do...running the stuff now11:08
anirudh0any ideas?11:08
PossibleBitYeah maybe. Maybe the version of the package wasn't on the CD.11:08
PossibleBitright qwerty121 have you enabled all package sources btw?11:09
qwerty121well, don't know.11:09
* qwerty121 is confused.11:09
PossibleBitin Software sources you should probably tick all the boxes for Universe, Multiverse and maybe restricted as well, then use synaptics to reload your package info11:10
PossibleBityou get access to a wagonload of new packages that way.11:10
qwerty121PossibleBit: ok. got it.11:10
LoganPayneI installed the packages I guess I use this conf-gtk app to11:11
PossibleBityeah11:11
baboit appears that my connection to the home router keeps crashing. it's really annoying. especially since emacs && remote windows server conspire to delete the page that i happen to be working on when it happens ...11:11
PossibleBitjust run asoundconf-gtk11:11
PossibleBitand choose pulse from the dropdown menu11:11
LoganPayneok11:11
LoganPaynerebooting my apps11:11
PossibleBitThis should theoretically force your alsa to use the software mixer, thus not blocking the sound device11:12
LoganPaynewow you're a lifesaver11:12
LoganPayneThanks11:12
PossibleBitdoes it work?11:12
LoganPayneYes11:12
PossibleBitcool :D Glad to be of help.11:12
LoganPayneI was always unsure of what was causing that bug11:12
PossibleBitYeah well, if you configure your ALSA to use your soundcard directly it blocks the device.11:13

LoganPaynePossibleBit: ahhh...11:14
PossibleBitwoah... I am actually registered to this server.11:14
LoganPayneNow if could just figure out why compiz likes to slow down while running my second monitor's X screen11:14
aljosahow can i remove broken package? i tried "dpkg --force-all -r db2exc" but it didn't work. package is ibm db2.11:14
PossibleBitWell you know. Compiz does need quite some high end hardware, LoganPayne.11:15
kosharican i load ubuntu mobile edition onto a vanilla PC with a session option like kde, gnome fluxbox ect???11:15
LoganPayneI like to think I have that11:15
LoganPayneNvidia 730011:15
PossibleBitIf you want to get more juice out of your machine you should probably try using "metacity --replace" first11:15
LoganPayneThat turns on metacity?11:15
PossibleBityeah.11:15
LoganPayneI do that via fusion-icon11:15
PossibleBitokay.11:16
