debCarlostroythetechguy: A small explain about... see, / is where the system and all software is installed, they don't take toooo much space, sooo / have should be smaller than /home because in /home you store all your data. Swap is just an helper ( ) that system uses for memory related operations like transfering, etc. it is recommended that you give to it  RAM X 2 of disk space...00:05

andresjWalloO: oh really? I just installed the package and it worked straight away :)00:08
Jack_SparrowLunar_Lamp webmin is a bad idea00:08
ubottuwebmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. See !ebox instead.00:09

meoblast001Gnea: http://pastebin.com/d2712717800:23
nickrudfoug, yes. Some said it was that the tools were too rough, that they had poor interfaces. Others said there was no reason to customize it.00:23
nickrudfoug, all third hand opinion on my part00:24
oshuhi all. My USB mouse freezes at random intervals once I'm at the desktop. I've tried booting with no apic, no acpi, etc. with the same result. Any ideas?00:24

Gneameoblast001: hrm, looks like you've been able to hit it with a web browser just fine. have you tried plugging the error message into google?00:25
oiaohmAnyone know when Ubuntu is going to fix the supidity of telling users to restart computer just because X11 has updated.00:25
meoblast001Gnea: yes..... i tried what it said00:25
SebNaitsabesthat's not stupidiity00:25
meoblast001Gnea: last time i got an error like this.. it was because i didnt have php5-mysql00:26
SebNaitsabesX11 is something major it's only the major stuff that needs a re boot unlike Windows00:26
meoblast001i checked00:26
meoblast001i have it00:26
unopfrieze, so, is ubuntu the router in question now, sounds to me like the linksys thing is the router as it connects those two subnets up ?00:26
CaleSebNaitsabes: Why not just restart X?00:26
SebNaitsabesCale:  good point00:26
oshuWalloO: is that a common problem with it? I am not at that computer right now00:26
nickrudfoug, I'm no expert. Mine works well, so I've had no reason to mess with it much. I would try running pavucontrol , and paman , and paprefs. apt-cache show <each of those> tells you what they are00:26
Gneameoblast001: hrm, it could've been asking for a certain version (the package manager can be picky like that at times)00:26

WalloOoshu: with desktop effects, when your CPU is overloaded, it may slow down mouse reactivity. I got it with my Athlon 2500+. Thios problem disapeared with my quad core Q6600.00:27
unopfrieze, so what connects the ubuntu machine to the linksys router?00:28
wuxianvidia 3d acceleration used to work fo rme; now, i am using xinerama, and i get crap for glxgears (200fps, instead of 2k fps) ... does xinerama kill nvidia 3d accelera5tion?00:28
unopfrieze, and what network is that connection on? ?00:28
BlueLagunaHmm, is there a way to "refresh" the dns configuration so it'd recognize changes in /etc/resolv.conf?00:28
WalloOwuxia: with nvidia card use twinview and not xinerama00:29
WalloO!twinview | wuxia00:29
ubottuwuxia: xinerama is an extension to !X to use two or more physical displays as one large virtual display. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/XineramaHowTo - See also !DualHead00:29
friezethe ubuntu router is plugged into a switch that is plugged into the "WAN" port on the linksys router. that side of the linksys router is getting the address
oshuWalloO: would that cause the mouse to completely stop working at that point? The effets seemed smooth to me, but I hadn't considered that.00:29
Beererdehi. how do i set the resolution higher than 800x600?00:30
SebNaitsabesfrieze: an Ubuntu router hummmmmmmmmmm  there are better OS's you can use as a router :)  I mean OS's that are more specific for routers and firewalls00:30
nickrudfoug, thanks for the feedback, I'll know which to recommend now ;)00:30
meoblast001Gnea: should i just install every PHP and MySQL plugin known to man?00:30

WalloOoshu: for me during CPU high load the mouse blocks for a few seconds or fraction of seconds then continue working00:30
unopfrieze, so, can the linksys router ping jake and vice-versa?00:31
unopfrieze, and can hosts on ping the linksys router?00:31
Gneameoblast001: not sure that'll work, but i suppose it couldn't hurt00:31
friezeand jake can ping the linksys router00:31
unopfrieze, sounds to me like NAT is not enabled or not working on the linksys router00:31
friezeon its address00:31
unopfrieze, have you verified that NAT is in operation?00:32
oshuWalloO: ah okay.. Mine actually turns off completely from that point on. I'll try turning off effects though, thanks.00:32
meoblast001Gnea: im installing GUI mysql tools, they usually confront you with the problem immediately when opened00:32
WalloOoshu: maybe it'S your X11 which freeze, not just the mouse00:32
meoblast001forkbomb? O_o00:33

unopfrieze, you can do all those without the need for NAT -- a router keeps subnets segregated, that's its job (or rather, it connects segregated subnets up)00:37
oiaohmIt is stupidty X11 can be restarted while linux is running.   Its stupid that Ubuntu makes users wait threw a full reboot when drop to console type a few commands can fix it.  No reboot required.   Ie they need to provide a better way.00:37

nickrudoiaohm, very true. You can do that anytime you're aware of the console way00:37

oiaohmThere is only 2 resons for a complete reboot.00:43
SebNaitsabesoiahm; Windows users are used to re booting for nearlly everything though oh  I put on program name goes here,  oh now I need to re boot00:43
oiaohmThere is a reason why Linux has run levels.00:43
Gneai say there's 3 reasons.00:43
=== RaceCondition|aw is now known as RaceCondition
oiaohmIn theory you can swap to a run level with nothing.00:43
nickrud!ot | nickrud SebNaitsabes oiaohm Gnea (see you there)00:43
ubottunickrud SebNaitsabes oiaohm Gnea (see you there): #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!00:43
unopoiaohm, a libc change might require a reboot - or close enough, restarting all services00:44
oiaohmThen swap back to your correct run level restarting everything back up no reboot.00:44
Gneaoiaohm: kernels, new hardware... and you forgot power outages :)00:44
oiaohmlibc no reboot00:44
Blaqlightdump RUNLEVEL > /dev/null00:44
s3acan i use virtualbox-ose to emulate a 64 bit operating system inside 64 bit ubuntu?00:44
oiaohmAt most restarting all services.00:44
SebNaitsabesI think virutalbox has limted or no 64bit support at the moment00:44
nickruds3a, yes, or 64bit os inside 32bit ubuntu on a 64bit chip00:44
Gneanickrud: we are discussing how ubuntu operates, it's hardly off-topic.00:44
nickrudGnea, it's offtopic regarding support. I'm looking for you all in there ;)00:45
oiaohmThat can be upto 40 secounds extra unop00:45
s3aactually i had problems in 32 bit wqith 64 cpu00:45
oiaohmDoing a reboot.00:45
Gneanickrud: educating users to these facts is, in fact, supportive. ;)00:45
RussianPhysicsGualraune: what should I be looking for in the package list?00:45
s3anickrud: well i have the intel pentium 4 630 and i have 64 bit ubuntu and virtualbox-ose gives me a problem wen trying to boot alpha2 intrepid amd6400:45
nickrudGnea, it'll turn into a debate soon, that's why I'm trying to head it off00:45
nickruds3a, ask about intrepid on #ubuntu+100:46
nickruds3a, no telling what's wrong with that image00:46
Gneanickrud: i just want to make sure that we're in agreement here. the only debate will be what sort of PSU we all use, which, yes, I agree, that should be taken to the other channel.00:46
s3anickrud: "This Kernel requires an x86-64 CPU but only detected an i1586 CPU. Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU."00:46

Ed54i followed all the steps here, but i can't install gnome-ppp00:54

Palace_ChanSebNaitsabes i deleted my linux partition and grub wont let me boot at all..so i was hoping through a livecd to use ms-sys to get windows to boot again00:58

nightim back00:59
SebNaitsabesPalace_Chan: that's pretty easy to sort out so you can boot Windows again, however before I tell you how :)  why did you get rid of Linux?00:59
SimotemplerBlaqlight is that good enough for a 3Mb internet connection01:00
Palace_ChanSebNaitsabes i just wrote to the master boot record from a livecd, i hope all i have to do now is shut down01:00
Palace_ChanSebNaitsabes because im changing laptops and im giving that one to my mom01:00
Palace_ChanSebNaitsabes she is not a linux user01:00
MasterShrekk so im running ubuntu server (8.04.1) and i have a 6tb raid tower attached to the server, i cannot format the entire drive since its too big, but apparently i can use it using parted, the problem is that parted crashes with every command i give it, here is a sample output which should have just printed the partition table: http://paste.ubuntu.com/27604/01:00
BlaqlightSimotempler, seems like it01:00
=== klingon_ is now known as klingon
SebNaitsabesPalace_Chan: well depending on what she uses her computer for,  it could be a good idea to have Ubuntu.  anyway what has happended is since you have deleted the Linxu parittoin01:00
nickrudjoshual, that's part of the gnome virtual file system, I haven't actually learned much more about it than it's name, it mounts there, and is supposed to clear up some race conditions and allow for more elegant usage of the file manager.01:00
Palace_ChanSebNaitsabes the one im on right now has hardy, but i have to return my old laptop to "as new"01:00
MasterShrekanyone have any leads? :)01:00
unopMikeH, bandwidth is doubled yes, speed depends on the line used per connection -- but, yes, things that use multiple connections will be allocated either of the lines to use and that's almost random01:01
Simotempler2621 should it not be about 300001:01
Simotempleror have i calculated wrong01:01
SebNaitsabesPalace_Chan:  since you deleted Linux  bye bye went the /boot/media/grub folder stuff01:01
RussianPhysicsGualraune: I'm still not entirely sure what I'm doing, I don't see any change in how it's behaving01:01
SimotemplerBits bytes01:01
SebNaitsabesPalace_Chan:  also Grub for Windows I expect has a partition number that well does not exist anymore hence why that won't boot01:01
Palace_ChanSebNaitsabes so during grub loading i just get grub error 17 and stuck01:01
unopPalace_Chan, do you have a windows disk?01:02
SebNaitsabesPalace_Chan:  you deleted part of Grub01:02
evil_techif i reinstall my ubuntu is there a way to make it see my software raid and use it again?01:02
SebNaitsabesPalace_Chan:  however it will still leave what's on the MBR.01:02
suselinmaster_of_master, smaller partitions01:02
MikeHunop: Is there no way of setting priority? Such as to use one connection, until saturated, then start using the secondary connection? The reason being, I'm moving, pretty much opposite to my office, It'd be nice to take advantage of two available connections.01:02
SebNaitsabesPalace_Chan: if you have a Windows CD.  you can  let Windows fix it's bootloader like that01:02
SebNaitsabesPlace_Chan:  yes the Windows CD can go over what's left of Grub on the MBR.  and then it will only boot Windows01:03
MikeHunop: However, I'd like to use my fixed connection primarily, for various reasons of reliability, and speed.01:03
Palace_ChanSebNaitsabes right but i didnt (only a system cd with two recovery cd's that wont prompt me for anythng, just reformat partition 1 and reinstall xp)01:03
kdavidIs there a solution for remedying ubuntu from not recognizing a sd high capacity card?01:03
alraune<RussianPhysicsGu>try sudo apt-get install usbmount01:03
SebNaitsabesPalace_Chan: you can re install XP.  or just let it fix the bootloade from the CD01:03
SebNaitsabesPalace_Chan: but yes re installing XP will make Grub go completly bye bye01:04

The version string in glxinfo sas 169.12, so I'm guessing my card shouldn't really even be supported. Someone mind pointing me either to a good howto for the correct drivers or correcting me if I'm wrong?01:05
Jordan_Ukdavid, With Ubuntu I mean01:06
jlivnii am not sure if this is the right place to ask, but i am wondering a good tool to copy over many (hundreds of thousands) of small files from one machine to another01:06
jlivniwhere machine B already has a good subset of the files - I just want to copy over the missing ones01:06
kdavidYes it accepts the cf in ubuntu fine01:06
jlivniit seems like rsync will take a bit too long to create the initial filelist01:06
RussianPhysicsGualraune: lsusb is just the command that lists all usb devices attached. That's the issue: it sees that it's there, but I can't get it to mount01:06
jlivniscp has no option to not copy over existing files ... (which would be ok, but seems like waste of bandwidth) .... any ideas?01:06

pokemon1571Hello everyone, I am having issue with my wireless card on my laptop while running Ubuntu, there is no linux  driver I found the windows driver and installed it using that program that lets you use Windows drivers.  It says that the wireless card is there, but I can't edit my wireless settings.  I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 and my wireless card is a Realtek RTL8187B.  Please help me!01:11
Palace_ChanSebNaitsabes tell you what, ill try rebooting to see if my ms-sys thing worked01:11
dlihow do I enable compiz in xubuntu-desktop?01:12

Ed54hey, i need help with installing gnome-ppp01:15
suselinPalace_Chan,  system cd has xp on or it would not try to install xp at boot hit f8 to get safe mode the fixmbr or fixboot01:15
geniiEd54: Getting winmodems to work under linux is usually a pain in the arse. The problem is not gnome-ppp but the model of your modem (PCTel)01:15
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about winmodems01:15
evil_techPalace_Chan: if you have another computer you can make a XP disc using Nlite with the I386 folder01:16
evil_techprobably better off finding someone with a real xp install disc though01:16
glitsj16dli: do you have all compiz related packages installed ? if so, run "compiz --replace &" from terminal to see if it works, after that you can add that command to the autostarted apps section ..01:16

RaceConditionI used dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config to enable antialiased rendering on fonts on my Ubuntu Server 8.04 machine.. is this supposed to take effect any time fonts are rendered using freetype?01:18
alraune<RussianPhysicsGu>last line is an example, yours is different, lsusb doesnt give full information01:19
glitsj16dli: not that i know off in xubuntu no, easily fixed though, adding the command takes 2 seconds :)01:19
glitsj16dli: does it work ?01:19
RussianPhysicsGualraune: alright, it's just a matter of figuring out how to configure gnomad2, I think i can figure it out from here01:19
RussianPhysicsGualraune: thanks so much for your help!01:20

Palace_ChanSebNaitsabes it worked !01:20
dliglitsj16, gnome-2.22 auto-detects aiglx/composite, could be a trouble though, if you don't want compiz01:20
alraune<RussianPhysicsGu>you can try with the example, save n close vi, replug mp3...humm01:20
SebNaitsabesPalce_Chan: so you got the Windows boot loader back?01:20
Palace_ChanSebNaitsabes i hope its permanent because i spent ALL DAY on this01:20
Palace_ChanSebNaitsabes apparently, i just rebooted and it booted xp just fine01:21
noloHi, all.  I need your help regarding my beloved ubuntu installation.  It doesn't boot anymore. When I enter in grub, it just goes to an never ending splash screen loop. I know I can just reintsall Ubuntu, but I also want to know how to troubleshoot it! Thank you01:21
SebNaitsabesPalce_Chan: well yes how it works is some of Grub will be left in the MBR.  and then you need another bootloader to go over the MBR one that also will boot Windows01:21
geniiEd54: Enable universe repository and do sudo apt-get update to be able for it to then find gnome-ppp. But you might want to look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto/PcTel as to why this could be an exercise in futility with the PCTel modems01:21
dliglitsj16, I'm trying compiz on EEE-PC, quite fun01:21
alraune<RussianPhysicsGu>another possibility:http://perbu.livejournal.com/2012.html01:21
djhashhow can I pipe ascii to serial port in terminal. eg. "cat text.txt|<serialport0>01:22
RussianPhysicsGualraune: awesome. I think I actually just got it working with gnomad01:23
glitsj16dli: don't go overboard with the settings though, compiz can hog you down, but it sure is great indeed ;)01:23
SebNaitsabesPalace_Chan: should be pernament yes01:23
_jdd_djhash: cat text > /dev/serialdevice i think01:23
noloAnyone please? How can I troubleshoot my ubuntu.  Where do I start?01:23
alraune<RussianPhysicsGu>does it mount now ?01:24
djhash_jdd_: thanx.. i think it worked.. gotta try it later..01:24
geniinolo: First thing to decide is what is the problem which needs troubleshooting :)01:24
noloOw, I'm sorry.  My message might have been truncated. This is what I asked earlier:01:25

Jack_Sparrownolo Did you add or change any drives around01:33
ASULutzysparr: Those triggers are there for a reason; the people that hang out in here all day week after week get tired of typing the same answer to a common question. It's rare to find a very unique issue ;)01:33
ubottuWireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs01:33

nownotim trying to setup iptables for openvpn but its not working and driving me nuts, any help?01:34
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about openvpn01:34
ubottuUbuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).01:34
vicesSebNaitsabes: that isn't helpful01:35
nownotSebNaitsabes: im well aware of iptables, but cant get them to work01:35
sparrASULutzy: yes, but people use them or non-common questions just because they recognize one word.  he saw "dvd" and jumped on it.  if i needed help that inappropriate i would have just asked google (and i did)01:35
maadis it possible that /dev/sda isn't hd0 and/or /dev/sdb isn't hd1 at boot time?01:35

wolsmaad: yes01:36
maadwols: how can i check/fix it?01:36
Jack_Sparrowmaad are you mixing sata and ide drives01:36
ASULutzysparr: Well, considering the trigger actually provided information pertinent to your problem, I'm going to have to say that he used the factoid trigger correctly and that you shouldn't have gotten snappy about it :)01:36
wolsmaad: device.map01:36
SebNaitsabessparr: ah the beautey of the internets people like you01:36
wolsif that actually is the problem01:36
Jack_Sparrownownot you would man it to figure out what you are doing wrong in steeing up your ports01:36
sparrASULutzy: i disagree01:36
glitsj16cdehaan: question first, the .deb you want to drop there is in the ubuntu reposotories correct >?01:36
SebNaitsabessparr:  funny when they are Windows users since just say something bad about their OS and :d01:36

Jack_Sparrowsparr Please take the discussion and opinions to #ubuntu-offtopic01:37
maadwols: device.map says hd0 -> sda, hd1 -> sdb, but maybe it's wrong?01:37
ASULutzysparr: then take a hint before you get banned ;)01:37
Flannelcdehaan: that's dpkg -i package.deb or gdebi01:37
glitsj16cdehaan: in that case apt isn't going to check for dependencies, try gdebi01:37
cdehaanglitsj16: Aah, gdebi, great.01:38

SebNaitsabescrashanddie:  on the panel the bottom or top.  right click and add to panel.  find the languge one and then with that add en GB01:42
ASULutzyJack_Sparrow: Though that's a good idea, beats explaining that the l in sudo fdisk -l is an "L" and explaining pastebins, and yadda yadda... I think I'll steal that from you :)01:42

kcmanbobertdos so they are saying all that crap to ward off people who are trying to sell ubuntu not the end user guy like me, so i can just click right through it? wow that is crazy02:29

cygokuglits16 : It's one where I can put my mouse pointer top right corner and see windows and choose with the pointer.02:30
bobertdoskcman: Well, it's not to ward off sellers. It's to ward off the companies who own the software and their patents, so that they don't rant and try to start suing people.02:31
glitsj16cygoku: usually scale is set to trigger on top right corner, but you can assign any other screen edge so i can't be sure02:31

rkagererSorry.  Trying to list installed packages on Ubuntu server.  Did "dpkg -l | more" but the piping screws up the formatting of the output.  How can I page the output?02:39

dliDeFirence, export the proper ENVs, then just issue the command02:39
Flannelrkagerer: try less instead of more.  Or put it into a file.02:39
theeyealteringrkagerer: use '>> packages.txt' instead of '| more' it will save it to a file02:39
rkagererSame effect with less.  What's a good text editor that I should use to view the output file?  (trying to cat it has same problem)02:40
DeFirencedli, meh, i dont have a clue how to do that so i suppose ill forget it :P02:40
theeyealteringrkagerer: 'view file.txt'02:40
jasonagohey why does nautilus cannot edit ftp files? It always says read only in gedit... In konqueror, when you edit ftp files on a text editor, you can save it directly to ftp...02:40
theeyealteringto get out of view you need to know the vim command which is :q!02:41
unoprkagerer, i don't think the formatting is changed -- it's just that your terminal is not big and long lines are wrapped around to fit02:41
dliDeFirence, try: " DISPLAY=:0.0 XAUTHORITY=~/.Xauthority glxgears "02:41
rkagererhmm. same thing.  Everything seems to be outputting more than 80 characters per line resulting in unwanted wrapping.  Any text editor that will NOT wrap the lines?02:41
RazorBeamzUbuntu 8.04 sucks because I can't get my microphone sounding good and not static filled.02:41

rkagerersorry I know this is a dumb question.  It seems like there's something obvious I must be missing :)02:42
dliDeFirence, that means your XAUTHORITY is not correct02:42
jasonagohey why does nautilus cannot edit ftp files? It always says read only in gedit... In konqueror, when you edit ftp files on a text editor, you can save it directly to ftp...02:42
unoprkagerer,  dpkg -l | vim -  # in vim type ESC :nowrap02:42
foughow do i remove applications like PalmOS and evolution mail? I'm trying to remove then add/remove programs but it says other applications depend on them.02:42
anteayaRazorBeamz, is that a question that you wish assistance on, or just a random flame?02:42
dnile/msg ubottu etiquette02:43
dmanfoug: i don't think you can, as they say, because of dependencies. I do wish I could remove evolution though02:43
fougdman: haha, seriously man. And the dictionary, the calculator...02:43
unopjasonago, nautilus can mount ftp locations locally -- all you have to do then is use gedit on those files02:44

Koolaid6i dont know if i set it ip right03:06
debCarlosjak0lyte: I think you should try VirtualBox or QEMU. An alternative, is to find those DLL and copy them in windows/system32/ , (that's the place where all DLL are), then try to install the app :).03:06

arvind_khadriripps, how can you make that person root till you aint in his account03:14
Koolaid6yeah but u still need to give "root" a password, typing sudo just tells it to "run as administrator"03:15
alrauneEno_: you can do with three cards, but a switch is about 10 EUR max ,much more comfortable, I'm too lazy for today...03:15
Mongoosealraune: no one seems to be up to the challenge03:15
Koolaid6if you type sudo passwd it should give you a prompt for a new password, if it doesnt then theres one already set for root03:15

arvind_khadrinownot, calm down if someone knows here they will surely assist03:22
arvind_khadri!iptables | nownot03:22
ubottunownot: Ubuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).03:22

nownotarvind_khadri: which obviously  defeats the purpose03:24

overlordpuppyHow do you get apt to build a package from source, including the dependencies?03:47
dobblegowhere did /etc/iftab go with the latest ubuntu release?03:48
geekoverlordpuppy: you can't03:48
glitsj16geek: there's winFF (http://www.winff.org/) and thin liquid film (http://thinliquidfilm.org/) .. both are ffmpeg GUI's03:48
overlordpuppygeek: That's terrible.03:48
David-Ageek: vlc has a gui, but i think it is harder to use, for converting media03:48
debCarlosoverlordpuppy: Yes... think about it, apt would have to look for packages dependencies and then download em and build em.03:49
David-Ageek: vlc can also convert from the command line, still harder to use than ffmpeg in my opinion03:49
geekoverlordpuppy: i'd use configure, make and checkinstall (its another package) get the necessary libs as make bitches about them, then use checkinstall to make a deb03:49
overlordpuppygeek: The problem is the particular program I'm trying to compile won't compile on my machine. Even when I change the prefix to /usr it complains it can't find the deps that I built03:50

Peeboubuntucool555: Ur as clear as mud, is it the Vmachine or the real machine that can't see the drive04:18
overlordpuppygeek: I hate to look like a real idiot, but the reason stuff wasn't showing up was cause the synfigstudio remembered my previous settings and the alpha channel was set to 0% opacity.04:18

LukipelaSo.. now that i have ubuntu installed my laptop will not give me a prompt for bios.04:18
LukipelaAnyone got any ideas?04:18
Jack_SparrowLukipela Ubuntu should have no effect on your bios.04:18
Peeboyou have to configure it in the vmware console before the vmachine will see it04:18
LukipelaYah well, magically it seems to have had an effect.04:19
coz_guys I had the fix for this but lost it during a change over.. right now the terminal has a password prompt of "[sudo] password for "username"   I want to change that to just "password"  anyone remember how?04:19
glitsj16cykogu: everything might be a bit much, but "conky" can be configured to come close i guess .. google around for possible configurations04:19
LukipelaBecause it was workign fine an hour ago when i set it to boot from CD so it would read the ubuntu disc, now it doesnt give the option, sits at a blank screen and then loads ubuntu.04:19
ubuntucool555Peebo: I already have. The Virtual Machine sees USB printers connected to it but not the external hard drive04:19

jasonagoOh, awhle ago I was talking about pidgin and kopete and the "now playing" features...I discovered that the kopete i have is kopete-kde4...the now playing plugin is not working with kopete-kde4 on ubuntu...BUT the kopete-kde3 is working fine...pidgin, has so many "now playing" plugins available on the net but none of them worked...04:43
bullgard4bazhang: And what is best for me: To update Grub or not?04:43
bazhangbullgard4, update in my opinion04:44
asdfasdand i am trying to install some libaqbanking packages04:44
jasonagoand kopete seems slow inside ubuntu...so still I'm here at pidgin...04:44
asdfasdbasically i am trying to verify that they are being grabbed from my custom server....04:44
bazhangjasonago, you may wish to ask in #kubuntu-kde4 about that first one04:44
asdfasdagain, i don't quite understand why the procedure for determining this should depend on what package i am installing04:44
bullgard4bazhang: Why cannot Update Manger decide that for himself and execute?04:45
bazhangbullgard4, it offers the choice04:45
asdfasdit seems that aptitude or apt-get or somehting should be able to tell me WHERE is it going to download from04:45
Flannelasdfasd: `apt-cache policy package` will tell you everything you need to know04:45
bullgard4bazhang: And what is the advantage to keep the old versin of Grub?04:45
bazhangasdfasd, you have to set that in software sources for default ones, third party ones who knows04:45
asdfasdFlannel: Flannel is correct04:46
Peeboubuntucool555: Sorry can't help you more until I get VMWare recognising my USB drive. L8R04:46
bazhangbullgard4, if wireless works less well in new kernel you may wish to revert back; ie no advantage in my view04:46
chriswr_i got a new screenlet and it says cpu load 6% , does that mean im only using 6% of my cpu?04:46
LimCorechriswr_: probably04:47
glitsj16bullgard4: you might have exotic configurations in your present menu.lst, in any case, making a backup of your present /boot/grub/menu.lst before committing is never a bad thing, justtakes 2 seconds ..04:47
wbmjchriswr: yes04:47

olskolircanyone know anything about xten-lite on ubuntu?  I have an ac97 sound card and I can't seem to get it to pick up my /dev/dsp04:47
bullgard4glitsj16: A valid point. I will backup Grub before I allow Update Manager to take the maintainers's version.  --  Thank you for your comment.04:48
glitsj16bullgard4: you're welcome04:49

halpmeHello, i am trying to vnc, all locally, i have attempted to run x11vnc, tightvnc so on,   i cannot log in on any puter, what is the server format is it just ip05:26
halpmewhy cant i connect, i even tried remote desktop05:26
halpmeim using tightvnc client on the windows05:26
andresjcrdlb: btw do you know why compiz sometimes changes fullscreen games to windows if I move the mouse within the first few seconds of it being open?05:27
halpmeim googling left and right if someone could help, i need this running tonight05:27
debCarlosjak0lyte: There's a thing i have just thinked... if you're using 7.04, then you should try to upgrade wine, you can download de .deb from their homepage at http://www.winehq.com05:27
crdlbandresj: are they games running in wine?05:28
halpmecome on its vnc people, it should not be so hard05:28
halpmebut it is beyond me05:28
CaptainMorganthis is only a minor gripe, but why doesn't Ubuntu have the bash alias ll set to ls -l by default? I find this default on other flavors of linux, specifically fedora and suse.... once again, it's minor, but I'm curious nonetheless as ll for this alias is cost-effective05:28
ubottuVNC 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 !FreeNX05:28
andresjcrdlb: no. theyre native games like sauerbraten, or tremulous, or even 2000 years into the future05:28
nickrudCaptainMorgan they're in your .bashrc , but commented out. Easy fix05:28
CaptainMorgannickrud, true, and I'm very familiar bash, but why are they commented by default, then?05:29
unavailableso does anyone know of any program that runs native to ubuntu/linux that supports yahoo voice?05:29
nickrudCaptainMorgan not sure. I have a .bash_aliases file, so I don't uncomment them. You could file a wish list bug I guess05:29
CaptainMorgannickrud, someone not really familiar with the aliasing system might not be aware of this...05:29
crdlbandresj: I haven't heard of anything like that then05:29
andresjcrdlb: it also keeps changing back and forth sometimes, staying less than a second on the fullscreen position05:30
andresjcrdlb: oh... if its on wine what can be done? maybe some of it applies here05:30
CaptainMorgannickrud, I'm not sure it's so important that I do so, pure curiosity is all... I wasn't sure if the developers had chosen it to be commented for some other reason that the other flavors of linux didn't(or did) account for05:30
crdlbandresj: wine just implements "fullscreen" by setting the size of the window to the size of the screen, forcing the window manager to convert that into the fullscreen state05:30
crdlbwhich is really buggy05:31
unavailableso does anyone know of any program that runs native to ubuntu/linux that supports yahoo voice?05:31
p00zergoodnight everyone05:31
nickrudcrdlb is turning of compiz still recommended for running opengl apps? (don't use much 3d stuff myself, so only intellectually curious ;)05:31

debCarlosnabs: i think you can do a script that disables compiz replacing it with metacity, but if you want to run compiz and get no effects, you can always check $ man compiz. For make a bash script that disables compiz replacing it with metacity, the command is $ metacity --replace05:36

abhi_amenado, : still no success. i have given the full path06:00
glitsj16abhi_: as your cron entree is right now that's the effect, it will run the command (pcmanfm) every day at exactly 10:09 am .. that's the cron syntax, is that what you want ?06:00
debCarloschriswr: But, if you want to know it exactly, you can search for "IRC" on Wikipedia.06:00
abhi_glitsj16, : yes06:01
ljvi know that through lamp one can make their own website..or host it..or similar..but does one still need to buy a domain name?  or is lamp all you need for a website..can make up a domain name and simply use it with lamp?06:01
chriswrdebcarlos: ok , i dont know if this is allowed to ask in this channel but are there any hacking channels?06:01
Flannelljv: You can set up your own website, and access it via IP.  There are free subdomains (dyndns, for instance), which you can get a free "whatever".something.com06:02
dbboltonif you install two video cards but are only using one monitor, will it improve your video quality in any way?06:02
dr_Willisdbbolton,  most likely no. unless you are using 'sli'  enabled video cards.06:02

jkoltnerHi guys... where do I adjust how much scrolling the mouse wheel performs?  It only scrolls about three lines at a time, and I'd like it to be at least twice that.  (This is Hardy Heron.)06:03
glitsj16abhi_: in that case you need to make sure like amenado suggested that your last part points to a valid path as amenado suggested .. did you test the command in a terminal before adding it to crontab ?06:03
ljvFlannel: cool. but say i wanted to make art.com and it wasn't taken..is that allowed with lamp?06:03
debCarloschriswr: I have just went to #hack , i don't know if it is what you're looking for..06:04
Flannelljv: It is.  But you will have to buy the domain.  (And you may have issues with your ISP and having a server)06:04
dbboltondr_Willis, how would it help sli cards?06:04
ljvah...so there is red tape06:04
abhi_glitsj16, : yes. /usr/bin/pcmanfm . works quite well06:04
jak0lytedebCarlos: any news?06:04
ljvmind if i pm you Flannel?06:04
dr_Willisdbbolton,  the point of 'sli' is  to allow multi video cards to share the rendering load. thus having sli video cards working together will double your rendering  power. (not quite, but it does give it a boost)06:05
Flannelljv: #ubuntu-offtopic might be a better place06:05
debCarlosjak0lyte: yep, i compiled Wine, now i need the homepage of the software you're traying to run, or, the download page of it ^^06:05
amenadoabhi_-> what time is it in your locale? perhaps if you can adjust it to the next 5 minute?06:05
ljvFlannel: great thanks. on my way there now :)06:05
glitsj16abhi_: so it'll work, try setting it to something like 2 minutes from your present time to test it, 10:09 am might be a long wait :)06:05
abhi_amenado, : so give it 5 min ahead06:05
=== Scrappy_coco_ is now known as Scrappy_coco
abhi_glitsj16, : ok , till now i am testing it 1 min ahead.06:06
glitsj16abhi_: that should work as well, strange ..06:06
amenadoabhi_-> try this entry   */10 * * * * xxx       thats every 10 minutes06:07
abhi_amenado, : what is */1006:07
amenadoabhi_-> try this entry   */10 * * * * xxx       thats every 10 minutes <----06:08
abhi_amenado, : ok06:08
abhi_glitsj16, : it does't work for 2min. so i am going for 5 min as per amenado.06:09
jkoltnerWhere do I adjust how much scrolling the mouse wheel performs?  It only scrolls about three lines at a time, and I'd like it to be at least twice that.  (This is Hardy Heron.)06:09
debCarlosDoes Wine takes too much time to compile?06:10
glitsj16abhi_: i can't get why that would make any difference .. if you're going to test it with pcmanfm as command, just make sure that is not already running or you might never see it's effect06:10

fwaokdamoo_cow, ok i'll do the command after my update manager finishes.  This isn't any type of beta stuff that might lose my information on that partition huh?08:04
moo_cowfwaokda-> its always worked for me. what causes ntfs partitions not to mount is if you didnt do a proper shutdown in windoze.08:05
DistroJockeyzedster, that site works for me (very slow to load though). Using 8.04.1 here08:05
fwaokdamoo_cow, oh well that makes since. it didn't properly shut down last time :)  Should I log in and do that or just do the cmd you told me?08:05
moo_cowthat site doesnt crash my firefox either. im using adblock.08:05
zedsterhmm... it cause firefox to resize and the top bar to disappear for me, also it stop showing up in the bottom bar, DistroJockey what gui are you using?08:06
moo_cowfwaokda-> login to what?08:06
fwaokdamoo_cow, vista08:06
moo_cowfwaokda-> thats a command for linux08:06
DistroJockeyzedster, gnome with compiz (default) running on ATI xorg drivers08:07
fwaokdamoo_cow, i know im asking if I just login to vista and shutdown correctly to fix my problem or if i dont need to worry about that and just use the cmd you recommended.08:07
zedsterhmm...still Its not a firefox issue since it crashes opera as well, I must have a bad plug in or something08:07

ethana2i am being completely honest09:16
ethana2what i'm left with is some packages updated properly, and some not09:16
ethana2with some broken in between09:16
j800rhelpy: no good for me. i'm already using ubuntu as my primary operating system09:16
ikoniaethana2: I can see that09:16
helpywell then install windows simply in a clean partition, but you have to reinstall grub09:16
ikoniaethana2: tell me a little more about what really happened ? did you click shutdown ? did you type reboot ?09:16
helpybecause windows remove your grub boot loader09:17
ethana2ikonia: i was watching it apply updates09:17
ethana2ikonia: then the screen goes black and i see text09:17
ethana2to the effect of it shutting down, and it did just that09:17
j800rif wow ran fine in wine for me i'd have no problem :|09:17
gooodyhow can i automatically launch awn during login?09:17
ikoniaethana2: thats not possible. X to crash and you see text - sure, but a machine doesn't do a controlled shutdown without user interaction09:17
glitsj16onthefence921: what output settings did you choose in winFF ? you can check synaptic to see if ffmpeg is coming from medibuntu by the way, highlight ffmpeg and check the tab labeled 'versions'09:17
helpywhole windows don't work in wine afaik09:18
helpydid you try virtual box ?09:18
ethana2ikonia: i know it's not possible, which is part of why i'm not liking this--  the universe is out to frigging get me09:18
helpyare there any specific programs you want to run in linux j800r ?09:18

ethana2memtest for 4-5 hours..09:20

ikoniashasha: when you plug it in, is it not detected09:30
ikoniaHomingHamster: pidgin is the standard09:30
j800rflannel: thanks for the help man. i found a config option that should most likely remove the problem i was having09:30
nano_what are the columns in /var/log/message file???09:30
ikoniaHomingHamster: but there is "amsn" specificlly for msn09:30
=== MingK is now known as WasabiWare
ikonianjpatel: time stamps and data09:30
ikonianano_: time stamps and data09:30
HomingHamsterikonia, i mean a msn client that does yahoo with your msn account like live messenger09:31
tarelerulzCan pidgin do voice or cam or any of the other features.   gyachi don't do it , pidgin don't kopete don't do voice and I can get yahoo running with wine nor could I get any other windows client running with wine.  SO that is my last hope09:31
ikoniaHomingHamster: pidgin09:31
nano_ikex:  so what does something like "[   11.593042]" mean?09:31
=== Jurkki_ is now known as Jurkki
HomingHamsterikonia, oh does it?? cool thanks09:31
ikonianano_: where are you seeing that ?09:31
nano_in /var/messages.009:32
ikonianano_: can you paste a few lines of /var/log/messages.0 into a pastebin please09:32
nano_ikonia: i just want to know what that means opposed to something like [0.00000]09:32
nano_ikonia: okay09:32
tarelerulzNone of those work like yahoo messenger for windows so running a virtual machine is all I can think of to do . I am tired of just text on yahoo.09:32
wols_ikonia: isn't that uptime basically?09:32
ikoniawols_: I'm hoping it's ntp drift09:33
DistroJockeywols_, ikonia : I also belive it is uptime09:33
ikoniaDistroJockey: I don't think it's uptime09:34
nano_ikonia:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/27673/09:34
ikoniaDistroJockey: I think it's the log of ntp drift09:34
wols_nano_: they always increase. always. look in your own logs09:34
ikonianano_: it would be helpful if the lines you pasted contained the text your questioning09:34
ikonianano_: or do you mean the 16.009:34
nano_wols_: so they are time stamps?09:35
nano_ikonia: yes09:35
nano_ikonia: then 16.* what does that refer to/09:35
vlodibuilt in webcam BisonCam (ALi 5602) - does anyone have it?09:35
wols_nano_: yes09:36
DistroJockeynano_, 16 seconds after boot started, that thing happened (is my understanding)09:36
tarelerulzWhat is good virtual machine software ? Want to try running xp ?09:36
nano_DistroJockey: wow, thats amazing09:36
ubottuThere are several solutions for running other operating systems (or their programs) inside Ubuntu, while using the native CPU as much as possible: !QEmu (with !KQemu), !VirtualBox, !VMWare, as well as !WINE and !Cedega for Windows applications09:36
ikoniawols_: thats seems to look right,09:36
DistroJockeynano_, what is amazing?09:37
gooodyhow can i know the commands of each installed applications?09:37
wols_gooody: by reading the docs for each09:37
nano_DistroJockey: the fact that syslogd also tracks seconds after boot09:37
ubottuqemu is an emulator you can use to run another operating system - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsXPUnderQemuHowTo09:37
nano_DistroJockey: so does that mean that 16 seconds after boot ehci_hcd is being loaded?09:37
DistroJockeynano_, well, it's nice info to have if you need it :)09:37
DistroJockeynano_, yep, looks that way to me09:38
gooodywols_: i'm creating launchers for awn but don't know the commands of the applications09:38
nano_DistroJockey: if im not mistaken udev is responsible for loading up ehci_hcd...but i can't find any config file to affirm this..or maybe even disable it?09:38
wols_gooody: look in your applications menu then09:38
glitsj16gooody: check the *.desktop files in /usr/share/applications for the Exec line(s)09:38
wols_!blacklist | nano_09:39

wols_kelvin911: you've been told what to use09:46
kidbuntuabchirk: i'll try that09:46
DistroJockeyAlgyz, then it's a hardware fault09:46
kelvin911is there winrar in ubuntu?09:46
wols_kelvin911: no!09:46
waistlessyes, but the java plugin package doesn't use hardy-proposed09:46

kidbuntuabchirk: i got this error error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)09:46
abchirkWINrar :P09:46
waistlessand it requires the latest xulrunner no matter what09:46
abchirkkidbuntu but did you set up the password?09:46
gaelfxkelvin911: no, but you can install rar from Synaptic so that File Archiver can use rar files09:46
Flannelwaistless: hardy-proposed is unstable, and generally breaks often.  You've found one such breakage09:46

kidbuntuabchirk: like replacing the "agoodpassword" with "mypassword"?09:47
waistlessFlannel: so can I force sun-java6-plugin to use the regular xulrunner?09:47
glitsj16fwaokda: screenlets itself doesn't any key support i think, but if you run compiz, putting them on the 'widget layer' and activating a toggle key for that in compiz config settings manager might work ..09:47
abchirkhm strange09:47
wols_kidbuntu: when you installed mysql there was a debconf asking you about a password09:47
abchirkkidbuntu right ;)09:47
DistroJockeyAlgyz, If the printer isn't connected and you press nothing when you turn it on, then it is a stuck button or a hardware fault09:47
waistlessbecause sun-java6-plugin is only one version: from regular hardy09:47

kelvin911does winrar works in wine?09:53
WeissFlannel: http://paste.ubuntu.com/27681/09:54
glitsj16fwaokda: that command only checks whether compiz is running, it might be installed, check synaptic for compiz to make sure09:54
DistroJockeyfwaokda, glitsj16 : best way to check it compiz is enabled is to  hold alt and scroll the mouse wheel (that's assuming you have a wheel :) )09:54
