Chaotic_DescentI'm sure there's documentation somewhere for ... whatever. I'm just not sure I could have ever found it.00:00
=== Miguel is now known as Guest62171
WebcamWonderIs there documentation on wireless for ubuntu?00:00
japhethLns: possibly you will see a file created called /var/run/reboot-required if a reboot is required after updating00:00
macrobadeitreach: Run a debugger, and try to understand the reason. You may also report a bug to the gedit package in ubuntu.00:00
Chaotic_Descentand I don't even know if just copying the one user's files into the other folder will be sufficient! :D00:00
Carbonfluxif I have one machine that is running Ubuntu and I want to install it on another machine from a .iso image on the first machine over network, is that possible using network boot?00:01
unopChaotic_Descent, we've all run into this sometime -- but you have to understand cp does things in a way that is confusing initially -- and that's not usually the way you want it to do things00:01
Lnsjapheth, thanks!! That's what i'm looking for :)00:01
jamuswill it recognize it if i boot 'as is' with no prep?00:01
__yy_Carbonflux: yes00:01
Fryguy--Carbonflux: sure, tftp should work. googling ubuntu network boot should give you plenty of results00:01
unopChaotic_Descent, you need to watch out for permissions now that you've copied one user's files into another00:01
travisdo someone know any working app like xvidtune for nvidia00:01
AquinaHas anyone experience with programs like XawTV or TVtime? Can someone suggest me an app for usage with my old analog Pinnacle PC TV Sterio card?00:01
Chaotic_Descentoh, I find computers in general do that sort of thing. *half smirk, half frown*00:01
LLMPis amarok possible for ubuntu or it will be buggy00:02
=== __yy_ is now known as __yy
macrobadjapheth: Wow! It was cool!00:02
FlannelLLMP: Why wouldn't it be possible?00:02
Fryguy--LLMP: amarok is in the ubuntu repositories00:02
Chaotic_Descentah, rsync didn't handle permissions then...00:02
Chaotic_Descentgotta still use chown00:02
LLMPbecasue it is KDE platform00:02
Fryguy--LLMP: all of KDE is available in ubuntu's repositories00:02
japhethLns: no guarantees this file will be present on your system, but it's a good place to start checking.  I guess if you KNOW you're system will need to restart after an update, check to see if this file is there, and then you can even use an automated script to update your machines every evening and reboot if required.00:02
WebcamWonderLLMP: It is pretty stable00:03
Fryguy--Chaotic_Descent: that's why i said a while ago to use cp -a, it maintains permissions00:03
zanberdoA co-worker of mine inadvertently overwrote the /etc/sudoers file with one that is owned by a user other than root.  Now all sudo commands reply that the file must be owned by root.  How can I change ownership if I can't sudo chmod the file?00:03
unopChaotic_Descent, it does, but it does not reset them in a way you want them done now -- it does not mind-read00:03
giacomo_casanovanot sure how best to describe my problem but: the display is not properly being utilized, in that a smaller resolution than would use the whole screen is presented in the top left of the screen, below which the graphic interface is repeated.00:03
LLMPSo you could use KDE in ubuntu00:03
Fryguy--zanberdo: boot from livecd or use rescue mode when booting00:03
Fryguy--LLMP: sure00:03
__yyzanberdo: you need to boot into recovery mode.00:03
ShadowBelmolve anyone can help? my ubuntu is mute >.<, i tryed alsa, pulseaudio and jackd, but anyone function, jackd says alsa is in use =/00:03
Flannelzanberdo: Reboot into the recovery console.  And teach him to be more careful00:03
macrobadjapheth: google seems to verify your suggestion00:03
Lnsjapheth, yeah - i'm seeing some stuff on google re: that file, looks like it *should* be present when it's required00:03
__yyzanberdo: I did the same thing a couple days ago, unless you've set a root password there's no way to fix without rebooting00:04
RAdamsscp -r root@example.com:/home/user/www doesn't work to capture the www directory, why?00:04
Fryguy--!work | RAdams00:04
ubottuRAdams: Doesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.00:04
unopFryguy--, his problem was cp copying stuff _into_ the destination directory00:04
RAdamscram it robot00:04
japhethLns: macrobad: well, if Google agrees with me, we must be making progress!  ;)00:04
Lnsmacrobad, and japheth - something that simple (creating a file) makes it SO easy to create scripts to...email/sms/etc00:05
Lnsjapheth, heh..totally00:05
Fryguy--unop: k, and cp -a is still helpful in that situation for maintaining permissions00:05
nickrudRAdams, probably because you didn't give a destination dir?00:05
marko-_-hello... my computer freezes all the time and i must reboot it... it just doesn't respons... it does that often when i'm using firefox... and now i had to reboot it 3 times because i played a file (first in totem then vlc) and it crashed... i don't even know what to do. Any suggestions ?00:05
zanberdoI think this exercise should teach him to be more careful! :)  Thanks00:05

Mrevox11Ok. One last question then I shall leave you guys alone.00:06
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about kiba-doc00:06
Lnsmarko-_-, do you think it could be a hardware (like memory) failure? have you checked it?00:06
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about kiba-dock00:06
Fryguy--RAdams: the manpage for scp details a list of optional and required parameters.  give it a read to learn more about the usage details of scp00:06
marko-_-Lns, do you know how to check such thing ?00:06

yoshowhen I start kiba-dock, I get a 128x128 white box on my desktop. no dock. The settings manager crashes when I click anything in it.00:06
Lnsmarko-_-, when your system boots, hit ESC and select "Memtest86" from the boot (grub) menu00:07
goldbondglitsj16: i hope i'm not bothering you. did you have a chance to take a look at my fstab?00:07
Fryguy--yosho: run it in a terminal and see if it gives you an error message00:07
marko-_-Lns, thank you! i will try that, be back later then00:07

dholbertLLMP: http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2008/07/01/enable-commercial-dvd-playback-on-ubuntu-804/00:12
yoshoAngelicaa: does it happen when booting the cd, booting the live session, or installing?00:12
Ahadielthiefness, If it's USB then you wouldn't need to open your tower up -_-00:12
thiefnessOtherwise I don't see it listed in lspci, and lshw doesn't give enough information00:12
Fryguy--waltons_pacman: being ultra descriptive and providing as much identifying information as possible is helpful to people.  I would also suggest googling some of those errors, see if you can find someone else who has run into a similar issue00:12

ikoniaSmegzor: you may want to stop mysql, restart it without the --skip-grant-tables, and hope that dpkg can prompt you for a root password when it needs to00:27
Smegzorlimit options are better than none.  How should I have done it?00:27
ikoniaSmegzor: mysqladmin and created a root@localhost user00:28
Smegzorgood to know :)00:28
shade1macrobad: not that I can tell, but I'm not sure, since I don't know much about ping's packets00:28
ikoniaSmegzor: or mysql grant all privileges on *.* to 'root'@'localhost' identified by 'password'00:28
Smegzorhmm..  actually I set/changed the password because I could not log in with mysqladmin00:28
l3dneed help with a printer issue00:29
SitUbuntuSitnovak, run gconf-editor. under apps, go to nautilus, desktop, then check the icons you want on the desktop00:29
ikoniaSmegzor: basiclly the default mysql account doesn't need a password (it doesn't actually have one) so that dpkg can update it when needed, you've changed the password, so locked it out00:29
l3d I thought i installed it fime  when I click to print a test page it seems to try then nothing00:29

gam3r111how do i get aim for lunux00:30
shade1macrobad: so, what do I grep for to find the ping packets? there's always the chance that I made a mistake, and didn't actually ping during that period. And maybe "host unreachable" means it gave up before even sending the packets.00:30

ubottugam3r111: Doesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.00:33
ikoniagam3r111: what's the problem with pidgin ?00:33
Fryguy--gam3r111: any reason why you want to use that instead of pidgin btw?00:34
ubunubipidgin doesn't support video chat or photo sharing, for one00:34
l3dpidgin is sweet00:34
ikoniaubunubi: neither with aol for linux00:34
Fryguy--ubunubi: neither does oscar afaik00:34
shade1macrobad: does that tell tcpdump to filter for that, or to bother saving those packets?00:34
gam3r111o because i cant send files to my friends using pidgin and pidgin dosent have the correct sounds00:34
shade1macrobad: could I use grep on the saved packets instead?00:34
Dreamtry EMAILING the photos, and send VIDEO files ^^00:34
ikoniagam3r111: it does support file transfer00:35
Dreamthen be happy ^^00:35
IndyGunFreakgam3r111: so have your friends send you sounds, and yes, you can sendfile w/ pidgin, i do it all the time00:35
ubunubiDream: that's a lame work around. why not just send e-mails instead of pesky instant messages to begin with?00:35
Fryguy--gam3r111: you can customize the sounds fine, and pidgin works with sending files just fine, you have a problem with your network if it doesn't.  running a compatibility layer to get another app working isn't going to help you at all00:35
gam3r111but if they are using aim it is always a failure00:35
bobertdosWhy can't you send files via Pidgin, gam3r111? constant failure?00:35
ikoniagam3r111: it works, we can help you debug that00:35
macrobadshade1: it would bother about the ping packets only. As for the second question, no, you cannot use grep on tcpdump file, but you may feed it to tcpdump, afaik.00:35

rdzubunubi, thanks a lot00:51
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo00:51

shade1macrobad: well, I didn't set up a firewall, but ubuntu server edition might have? I don't think so. It had dhcp problems during install, so I don't see how that would be it's own fault.00:52
macrobadshade1: By the way, try running 'arp -an'. It should give you some mappings between MAC and IP addresses.00:52

macrobadshade1: hmm... can you tell me once more the ip, netmask, and the gateway?00:54
shade1macrobad: could it be a driver problem? I know the driver module is loaded, and the card was recognized properly, but I don't think that lsmod indicated that the driver was driving anything.00:54

shade1macrobad: ip: netmask: gateway:
macrobadshade1: It might be a driver problem. If everything else fails, it is most likely to be related to drivers.00:55

jmallinYes.. I rebooted after I disabled the drivers and again after the final step00:56

daggerxcan some1 help me out01:26
klosit still doenst solve my problem, its not a problem with the network card, its an ubuntu issue01:26

bullzeye95alright, I deleted the partition without a problem :).  Now, if I were to boot into it, would anything bad happen?01:26
klosthe network card works fine, just ubuntu always wants to load the wrong driver, i think i have to blacklist something and put the other driver in the modules01:26
macrobaddaggerx: you'd better stick to NetworkManager (default with Ubuntu). If not, you'd have to install and configure wpa_supplicant.01:27
derspankstermy ubuntu hardy laptop "forgets" my network settings (name and password) on a regular basis. Anyone know whats going on?01:27

bob3213243i am trying to connect to my home computer via Tight VNC. How do I connect when I am not on it's network. I have the WANip and LAN ip as well ass port 22 forwarded.01:27
daggerxmy lo is in the interface file01:27
shade1macrobad: also, that first ip address was supposed to be, not 192.168.0/2401:28
Fryguy--bob3213243: vnc uses port 5900, not 2201:28
bob3213243fryguy so I just need port 5900 forwarded so that local ip?01:28

FelixTheCataestrivex: Ah, I see what you mean. The last step, then, is finding the applications that accept the UVC driver.01:29
macrobaddaggerx: That is what I am speaking about. You either let NetworkManager configure it for yourself, XOR let the NetworkManager do it, and trust me, it is better to leave this job to the NetworkManager, and not to edit any files by hand!01:29
shade1macrobad: hmm, well, I think that there's still a chance (minor?) of driver problems, because lsmod claims that neither of the two drivers that are supposed to be used by my nic are being used. There was also the possibility of the switch causing problems, or routing, I think you mentioned.01:29
daggerxmacro i didnt01:29
daggerxi left it alone afteter i did the ndiswrapper from that no fluff stuff page01:30

Fryguy--lastnode: yes01:30
bullzeye95Now that I deleted my broken ubuntu partition, how would I go about deleting it from GRUB so that I don't accidentally try to boot into it in the future?01:30
macrobadshade1: Yeah. If the IP settings are correct, it is either the driver, or the switch (I doubt, a router).01:30

macrobadshade1: Try to sniff the trafic with tcpdump, or check the switch config, or check the same card in a different environment.01:32
macrobadshade1: Sorry, I cannot suggest anything else remotely.01:33
daggerxmacrobad network manager is showing my wnetworks01:33
daggerxbut when i try to connect i cant01:33
shade1macrobad: well, this card just came out of a working computer, so I know the nic is good; the only problem is that it was on a windows computer, so I don't know how well linux supports it01:33

aestrivexas in drop down menus recognize that there is a video device called Live! Cam VF04 whatever01:35
shade1macrobad: the switch doesn't have any configuration, it's just a switch. Unless it has some sort of button on the back. I could try sticking the cable in another jack, but we already verified that the physical layer worked01:35

aestrivexfelix: oddly enough one of the instructions that i came across indicated that uvcvideo only worked with v4L2 and not with v4L01:36
macrobadshade1: ah, ok. Actually, switches might be very complicated, and support VLANs, i.e. even if physical layer works they can mess up stuff on the mac layer.01:36
daggerxlogical name: wlan001:36
ynotbullzeye95, look in gparted to see what drive or partition you edited01:36
aestrivexat least iirc01:36
macrobaddaggerx: you're lucky01:36
FelixTheCataestrivex: Hate to say it, but I'm out of ideas. You could unplug the camera, run 'ls /dev > list1.txt', then plug in the cam and run 'ls /dev > list2.txt', then compare them both. That'd at least show you if there is a dynamic /dev file.01:37

Marv3lzit's noam, the g is silent01:39
macrobaddaggerx: In my case I also have wlan0, and it doesn't always work, but I've found a workaround. The problem is that the new kernel network stack (wlan0 instead of eth1 tells me about it) has a bit different way to configure.

macrobadshade1: To start with, as a sidenote not all the routes are displayed there. Honestly speaking, there are dozens of "system" ones, which should never be modified. You should be looking at routes to the networks you're connected to straight away, and then to the default gateways.01:53

macrobadshade1: You may try to bring there another computer and connect straight to it (don't forget to use a crossover cable then) so that you could either confirm or dismiss switches and routers issue.02:40
Flannelrand0m: because its a gnome utility that mounts it.02:40
acp_can anyone direct mo to a how-to, I would like to connect to the internet using my nokia E61 modem in hardy,tnx!02:40
macrobadshade1: Thanks, will do. A better luck to you! :D02:40
mike3454is xfce better then gnome ?02:41
FAJALOUFlannel: what about reinstalling the kernel from the livecd?02:41
FlannelFAJALOU: thats probably more work than reinstalling Ubuntu, to be honest (since your home is separate)02:41

FlannelLLMP: Alright, did you type it just as I said it?  You should remove the backticks (`)02:43
AlphaXerois there a way to upgrade or downgrade X.Org Server?02:43

FlannelLLMP: Close everything, don't save it.02:48
victor__kernel_ghost: the extract_xc3028.pl is nowhere to be found02:48
shade1Fryguy--: the symptoms are really weird: 1) I get incoming packets from other computers on the lan. 2) I can't ping any other computers, I get "Destination Host Unreachable" 3) I can't get dhcp, probably for the same reason, since I can't connect to the dhcp server. Actually, I don't think my nic is sending any packets out. tcpdump doesn't catch any. So, what could cause my nic to receive, but not send any packets? Thoughts?02:48

peterhdI have an installation question.  I want to install 8.04 on a system currently running XP.  The system has two drives.  The XP drive, C, is dedicated to Windows.  The second drive is portioned, and I have available a 39g area (drive H:) on which I’d like to place Ubunut.  Can I tell the installer to use that Drive?  If not, please point me to a thread on how to complete a manual install. ...02:55
FlannelFAJALOU: Yeah.  Like i said, don't replace your kernel, just put another one in there (along with the support files)02:56
FAJALOUFlannel: sorry for being n00bish, but how can i do that?02:56
AlphaXerook drivers didnt seem to install02:56
FAJALOUlike can i just c&p the kernel from the livecd into /boot ?02:57
FlannelFAJALOU: From the looks of it, this is a fresh install.  I'd reinstall, it'll be quicker and easier02:57

Fryguy--joshual_: then you don't03:03
shade1daggerx: what do you need?03:03
FlannelFAJALOU: You can certainly try, although I'm less convinced its a kernel issue now.  Have you tried fscking?03:04

pijuanybody knows hot to block torrent ?03:17
shade1piju: what do you mean "block"?03:17
pijushade1, block all torrent client from downloading03:18
Fryguy--piju: just don't run a torrent client then?03:18
pijuFryguy--, no. not from me. its for client03:18
pijuclient that connects to the ubuntu03:18
Fryguy--piju: there's no reliable way to do what you want03:18
pijuFryguy--, why ?03:19
Krumarm-c, i hope not, it wouldn't burn a few others i had, just got a new spindle of them, it's burning cd -rw fine, and dvd's03:19
cjbHi.  The latest intrepid update looks to have hosed X.  Is there a fix?03:19
Fryguy--piju: because most modern torrent clients encrypt their traffic and so you'd have to go as far as an SPI firewall to even get close to determining what is torrent traffic and what isn't.  Nevertheless, it's far outside the scope of this channel, check out #networking03:19
Fryguy--cjb: #ubuntu+1 for intrepid03:20
cjbOh, thanks.03:20
temoto-mobiPlease advice a console mp3 player03:20
shade1piju: well, you could block the standard torrent ports, but the client could just change which port they use.03:20
Fryguy--temoto-mobi: mpg12303:20
temoto-mobiFryguy--, thanks.03:20
Fryguy--temoto-mobi: or a cli client for mpd, like nmpc03:20

Picigooody: What version of Ubuntu are you running?03:23
gooodyPici: i'm running 8.0403:23
sdfgskubuntu :)03:23
shade1piju: this page seems helpful for blocking bittorrent: http://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=42623 Apparently you should just throttle bittorrent down to really low speeds, so that they don't realize they need to change ports.03:23
Fryguy--gooody: so if you want a specific version of gstreamer for some reason, i'll repeat whta I said already03:23
Fryguy--goody: try getdeb.net, or compile from source03:23

shade1Fryguy--: so, do you have any ideas what could make my ethernet card receive packets, but unable to send them?03:26
soobsi would like a bit of help/words of wisdom please03:26
AndrewGearhartwhy does ubuntu use for localhost and not like the rest of the world?03:26
Fryguy--shade1: no, what happened when you changed ports on the switch03:26
Fryguy--AndrewGearhart: pretty sure it does use
shade1Fryguy--: nothing, ping still returns "destination host unreachable"03:26
sdfgs [o3]03:27
pijushade1, seems like iptables need an extra modules . is it ?03:27
FAJALOUsoobs: what is your prob?03:27
Krumarm-c, i just tried the same disc again, but this time burned an iso to the disc using the command in nautilus "write to disc", it went just fine.03:27
shade1Fryguy--: earlier I tried capturing ping packets with tcpdump; I captured passing traffic from my other computers, but no ping packets from the ubuntu box03:27
soobswell, its pretty long: basically i'm trying to use a strange CRT HDTV as a monitor to watch films on with ubuntu, but i cant seem to change the resolution of that display to one it will accept03:28
AndrewGearhartFryguy--: in my hosts file... (which I've never changed manually) is an entry for for localhost... when I try to visit http://localhost or ... things don't work properly (the system prompts me to download a file "~" ... while when I visit or http://andrew (my hostname which is mapped in my hosts file to ... it serves the html file correctly03:29
shade1piju: well, again, it only works for either unencrypted traffic, or traffic on standard ports. If you only throttle their connection, and don't block the ports completely, however, they might not notice, and thus change their ports. Bittorrent doesn't always get very good speeds ;)03:29
soobsbefore i used powerstrip really easily with winxp03:29
soobsamdcccle isn't as powerful03:29
Fryguy--AndrewGearhart: probably related to your apache settings somehow03:29
AlphaXerook peeps. cya. tomorrow i'll be on suse ;-)03:30
soobsbtw: using an ati radeon 9800 card if that helps, using clone mode to have a standard monitor in 1280x1024 and the tv in 1680x1050 i think03:30
pijushade1, its hard to totally block torrent connection03:31
WalloOpiju,  if you want to blovk remote clients from connecting to your client, then just edit the source code of your torrent client to disconnect any remote connection from another client to retreive data'03:32
shade1piju: yep, but you could run a QoS program that lets http, https, and other services that you know your client should be able to use have decent bandwidth, and either block, or throttle all of the other ports down to really low speeds03:32
srid`hello! I am planning to reinstall everything on my computer. should I install ubuntu first and then WinXP?03:32
shade1piju: how many users do you have that are trying to run bittorrent?03:33
WalloOsrid`, XP then ubuntu03:33
Flannelsrid`: Other way around is easier03:33
srid`ah ok03:33
FAJALOUxp first then ubuntu b/c MBR makes it impossible to get to ubuntu w/o having to use a Super Grub Disk03:33
srid`I do have vista installed right, but it is not willing to resize the only partition on my hard disk. resizing in Ubuntu installer hangs forever.03:33
OzoneNerdQuestion 1: When one issues a "./configure" command, why is the "./" there?03:33
srid`*vista installed right now03:33
pijushade1, how about blocking torrents annoucing url ?03:34
Fryguy--OzoneNerd: because your pwd isn't part of your path by default, so you need to give a path for linux to find the file03:34
pijushade1, only one03:34
FAJALOUsrid`:  try burning a disk called gparted and using that to partition03:34
pijushade1, only one client03:34
enzotib enzotibcocloca5303:34
FAJALOU!gparted | srid`03:34
ubottusrid`: gparted is a !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php03:34
shade1piju: how savvy is this user? ;)03:34
GustavoHello, I have a notebook gateway, with the wireless network on the integrathed USB (lsusb finds that) and the wireless was working on Ubunto 7.0. Since 7.04 it is not working properly anymore. sometimes "iwlist scan" finds the network although when it tries to connetc, it stops.... there seems to be no connection between ifconfig (wlan0) and iwconfig03:35
pijushade1, i want to block it03:35
pijucoz i hate him03:35
Gustavohave anyone suffered with that too?03:35
shade1well, I don't know about blocking it, but you could at least make it severely frustrating.03:35
srid`FAJALOU: I have sysresccd.org. but in the past, when I tried to resize Vista partition without using the Vista disk manager, I end up screwing vista (it never boots again).03:35
FAJALOUGustavo: have you tried using ndiswrappe?03:35
srid`so I am wary of resizing using other tools.03:35
Gustavothe modprobe already says that it is installed03:36
KanjaI'm bulding a new computer, can someone recommend a good mobo that works well with nix?03:36
FAJALOUwell ya b/c vista is evil srid` :) no defragment vista partition first,,, that might help03:36
Fryguy--Kanja: pretty much anything03:36
srid`I did that. anyways, this gives me an opportunity to 'upgrade' to XP. ;)03:36
FAJALOUsrid`:  totally :)03:36
FAJALOUbesides with ubuntu's compiz etc, you won't want vista anyhoo :D03:37
shade1piju: If you try blocking the 6881-3889 ports, bittorrent switches to using http, and I don't know if you want to throttle his web usage ;) However, throttling down those ports to 10kB or 20Kb/s would be pretty annoying03:37
Fryguy--FAJALOU: maybe, maybe not03:37
srid`FAJALOU: yea, XP is primarily for playing games (I am a fan of AoE3).03:37
AlphaXerovista doesnt crash as much as Xorg though lol03:37
Kanjafryguy--: anything? gigabyte, intel, asus all should be good?03:37
FAJALOUFryguy--: we hope for it ;)03:37
Fryguy--shade1: very few people still use those ports for torrents, most clients nowadays default to automatically picking a random port03:37
Fryguy--Kanja: sure03:38

smallfoot-Hans Reiser has been charged for the murder of his wife and will be imprisoned for 15 years. This is very unfortunate - not that his wife is dead, but now perhaps he wont be able to develop Reiser4, the kickass file system. :( Is it possible for him to work on Reiser4 inside jail?03:40

moderatelybcWhen I try to install vmware server, when I type the post-config commands, it doesn't do anything, just gives me the default prompt again.  Then when I try to run vmware it tells me that it's installed but not correctly configured and suggested redoing it by invoking the following command: /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl. and after I go through configuring that it tells me the configuration was successful, but it still doesn't work.  Any idea04:25
Fryguy--spanther: compositing is the concept of rendering the gui into a buffer so that another device can do something with it04:26
Fryguy--spanther: usually a graphics card, but not always04:26
Fryguy--spanther: see xpra, which uses compositing to transfer the desktop over a network to another machine04:26

ubottuJazzmaster42: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?04:28
fulnfor u explanation04:28
Fryguy--moderatelybc: try #vmware04:29
moderatelybcOk, thanks.04:29
bobertdosfuln: I warn you though, you might not get the best performance out of an ATI 200M Xpress. It's a pretty low-end chipset, after all.04:29
eitreachbobertdos: No, I use my regular account, but as every other user, I need to access my root system. Whenever I do this with a program that uses the file shortcuts in the open diralog, it crashes. gedit, fileroller, everything that uses it.04:29
Jazzmaster42i tried to connect an external lcd to my laptop, it didnt work well and i gave up, but i cant seem to get my laptop resolution back straight. using 8.0404:29
Nalidfryguy-- k, i screwed something up bad with my env variables. when i do SIMPL_PATH=/home/mike/fifo and then export it and then echo it, it says its right.. but when i restart the terminal it goes back to pointing in the wrong place. ideas?04:29
Fryguy--Nalid: environment variables only exist for a single session04:29
djhashwhats a good IRC client for ubuntu? I'm using XChat and not liking it.. also something other than konversation.. would rather not install something that will install KDE components04:30
Fryguy--Nalid: add it to  your .bashrc (assuming you are using bash) for it to get repopulated04:30
Fryguy--djhash: i like irssi04:30
eitreachdjhash: search through Synaptic. Plenty of clients.04:30
Gneadjhash: irssi rocks, if you don't mind it in a terminal04:30
cycomanyone have a howto on getting horizontal scrolling enabled on a mighty mouse?04:30
ks3Jazzmaster42, you might be able to use xrandr; something like xrandr --output VGA --off04:31
bobertdoseitreach: You mean every graphical program you access as root crashes?04:31
cycomsqueeze button already works, but for some reason horizontal scrolling is disabled.04:31
Jazzmaster42hmm i dont think its trying to output at all04:31
Jazzmaster42im just having problems with the little menu applets working right04:31
eitreachbobertdos: an example.. I can open gedit, and then try to open or save a file - when I do that, it crashes. With fileroller, I can open an archive, but when I want to extract it, it crashes.04:31
Jazzmaster42it thinks its at 1680x1050 but its clearly not (i have to scroll around)04:32

JasonCO_hi folks - for some reason -- when i access smb shares in nautilus under gnome - -it works fine -- when i try to do it under fluxbox -- it does not -- running hardy -- any ideas?04:33
Dr_willisJasonCO_,  what file manager you using under fluxbox? nautilus?04:34

olskolirccan someone help me set up and secure my apache2 server to be private04:34
JasonCO_im sorry -- didnt mention that04:34
Dr_willisJasonCO_,  weird.. i wonder if some gnome service isent getting ran.04:34
JasonCO_ya -- thats kinda what i was suspecting -- i just dont know which one04:35
olskolircffs why don't folks say they don't know instead of having me read man grep04:35
olskolircgive me a f*n break04:35
bobertdoseitreach: gksudo is generlly better for graphical programs. It sounds to me like something might be wrong with one or more of your services or that your hard drive partition is bad. It would seem your main problem is writing to disk in general.04:35

JasonCO_Dr_willis, i dotn know what gnome services are well enough to be able to track it down either -- but i suspect ur right04:36
DarkAuditso what's the difference between sudo and gksudo besides the GUI password entry?04:36
eitreachbobertdos: thiere's nothing wrong with my harddrive. Everything works fine as long as I don't use the programs with root.04:36
randallhow can i make ubuntu do updates at a certain time like 3am04:37
Dr_willisJasonCO_,  i r3call that openbox added a 'gnome/openbox' menu item to the sessions.. i wonder what its launching in addation to openbox.04:37
moderatelybcWhen I boot up, Ubuntu doesn't automatically add one of my hard drives.  I have to go to Places > 203.9 GB Media for it to appear on the desktop.  I store things such as music on it and if I open up Rhythmbox without first opening it up from Places, the music tracks start deleting since they can't find it.  But Ubuntu knows it's there because it's in Places, but it's not "loaded" er, I don't know the correct term.  Any ideas?04:37
eitreachbobertdos: seems to me the problem lies with the open/save dialogs, since things crash when they open. I don't get a chance to either open or save.04:37
JasonCO_humm - i dont know -- any suggestions where i should be digging? -- im asking in #fluxbox at the same time -- no answers at all there04:38

Jazzmaster42why do i have to scroll around the screen even though everything is telling me im running at native res for my display04:39
bobertdoseitreach: True enough, which is why I would imagine something is corrupt with dbus or some other service that gets invoked under root. You do get prompted for your password, right?04:39
eitreachbobertdos: yes, when I start the programs.04:40

Dr_willisJasonCO_ ya could install openbox, and see if the openbox-gnome session has same problem.. if not.. track down what its running (some script i imagine) and make your own variant that runs what you want to run.04:41
DarkAuditrandall: np :)04:41
eitreachbobertdos: I'm not getting much from the terminal either. Just Segfault.04:42

All windows are automatically opened on all workspaces instead of just one, and I can't seem to correct that (the only04:47

koolranchwill I need to format my drive?05:05
Fryguy--^tiNee^: make a better formatted paste please05:06
Fryguy--koolranch: probably not05:06
dpeachOk, now that I have read the log on my computer not starting with the nVidia driver, I am more confused. There is nothing in the log that indicates that it did not work.05:06
Ping@koolranch: Yes. I recommend ext3 for the filesystem.05:06
^tiNee^it was straight from the module assistant05:06
iplaythisgamekoolranch, after you delete the partition, the installer will do any necessary formating05:06
Pingsleep time for me.05:06
koolranchwill I lose Windows?05:06
eyeslocalOK, here's a weird one. When I right click on the menu bar and select 'edit menus', I get a dialog box like I'm supposed to, but all the buttons (new item, new menu, new separator, etc). How do I get those buttons back?!05:06
Fryguy--koolranch: no05:06
threedee^tiNee^ what are you trying to do05:06
timercrackhave a nice dream05:07
Ping@koolranch: real quick before bed: not if you format the OTHER partition. :) Just gotta make sure you get the right one.05:07
Dr_williskoolranch,  the linux installer formats the linux partitions properly. Linux is NOT windows. :)05:07
IndyGunFreakkoolranch: follow Dr_willis advice... partition your drive, and leave whatever you want for linux unallocated, install Linux there, and it will setup the filesystem05:07
eyeslocalerr all the buttons are GONE05:07
iplaythisgamekoolranch, as long as your sure u dont delete the partition containing c:05:07
^tiNee^threedee, install driver for the webcam05:07
jendaFryguy--: ok, I'll try fsck from a LiveCD. Thanks05:07
koolranchok, I'm a bit confused05:07
Dr_williskoolranch,  be VERy carefull what you format. thats why i said to use the windows parittion tool and 'delete' the d partition, leaving that part of the hard drive 'unallocated' the installer can be told to 'use unallocaated' space.05:07
threedee^tiNee^ any webcam rooms?05:07
cpiercestop dual booting05:08
dpeacheyeslocal, I have heard of that before, and I think the guy said it had something to do with the language settings on his machine that made it work.05:08
^tiNee^threedee, i dont quit understand ur question05:08
cpierceits for sissys05:08
koolranchI thought I was supposed to delete the d: partition, thereby merging both partitions05:08
Fryguy--koolranch: you can do that if you want05:08
dpeacheyeslocal, but I don't know what he did to fix it.05:08
koolranchIf I format that newly merged drive, won't I lose Windows?05:08
Fryguy--koolranch: yes05:08
iplaythisgamekoolranch, you delete the d: partition so you have room to install the linux partitions05:08
eyeslocaldpeach: really? I'm using English, but I'll try to change it temporarily05:08
fulnhii all05:08
threedee^tiNee^ i was wondering if there were any webcam rooms05:08
Dr_williskoolranch,  merged? who said merged?   You will have C: and then "unallocated' space afterwards.05:09
fulnhow I can install flash player 905:09
koolranchso I can choose to use unallocated space instead of formatting?05:09
^tiNee^threedee, sorry i dont know05:09
Fryguy--koolranch: yes05:09
koolranchah, ok05:09
iplaythisgamekoolranch, YEP05:09
Dr_williskoolranch,   you have the formating fetish.. and are using the term improperly.. You partition a drive.. you make 'filesystems' on the drive.. then format the filesystems.. the installer will handle the formating of the linux filesystems05:09
fulnplease help me ya05:10
fulnhow I can install flash player 905:10
Fryguy--fuln: sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree05:10

dimitreeCan someone tell me why : Ubuntu disregards the settings in xorg.conf, i'm using Nvidia and Nvidia X Server Settings to change my dislpay settings, becayse the save configuration to xorg.conf doesn't work, i copyed the contents of the file using the "Preview" in Nvidia X Server Settings, then copy pasted it to xorg.conf and saved the file with admin rights, when rebooting the changes are not there again, the xorg.conf file is as it should be, but sreen07:34
dimitree resolution and refresh rate are not according to xorg.conf, also how come the Nvidia X Server Settings detects currectly my monitor and the refresh rates, but the "Resolutions" settings under System->Preferences->Resolutions does not detect my monitor and resolutions, why does Ubuntu 8.04 disregard the contents of xorg.conf ?07:34

My system has no problems with USB when booting WinXP, which I'm trying hard to reach a point where it is no longer necessary, but I often have problems using a USB Hard drive, memory stick, and today my Sony camera.  The camera auto mounted and I was able to successfully copy all photos, spent several minutes viewing them to assure they were complete, and...09:14
apinunt...closed the window, right clicked the icon and clicked on eject. As usual the icon disappeared and no message appeared so after a minute or more I disconnected the cable and then received a message that it was unsafe to remove the device. Perhaps it would be desirable for a safe to remove message to be shown EVERY time an eject is performed?09:14
