SalooooomyGnea: compiz does not come up in the prefferences menu. Maybe i missed something during the install? in order to run it i have to execute compiz from within my shell. adding it to .bashrc was my way of having it persistent. adding the --replace was only used to keep from having another WM load up and consume resources.04:26
bfigGnea: the documentation is online and to be honest i really don't know where to look... i've tried finding any reference to 'debugger output' or 'compile failed' but failed miserably04:26
GneaSalooooomy: it's not going to say 'compiz' there. you will get 3 options. try disabling it altogether (so there's no desktop effects at all) and then restart the system, then try to turn them on again from the Visual Effects panel04:27

lowluxcharge you out of the ass for the cds.05:14
mindrapelowlux - yet they seem to be public companies that have an income... how is this possible?05:14
spiritssight2keppi: it seems not to be working on the bottom of the FF it says trying to connect to (D-Link sec router)05:14
mindrapeclearly this isn't the "linux" way!05:14
danbhfivepsilo-: have you tested it?05:14
lowluxsupport... just like ubuntu05:14
psilo-danbhfive: nope, not sure how to do that05:15
smm289I have had ubuntu 8.04 installed for about two weeks.  I want to watch a DVD, I insert the DVD and Totem Movie play starts up and then gives me this error: "Could Not Read From Source"05:15
smm289any ideas ?05:15
mindrapelowlux - thats part of it.  They do charge for RHAS and ES though.05:15
keppispiritssight:  ok, which is your first and which is your second?  Are you able to ping both routers?05:15
psilo-danbhfive: when i pull up ifconfig it doesn't show up though05:15
danbhfivepsilo-: plug it in, and try to use it to connect to the internet,   use commands like iwconfig, and see if it shows up05:15
mindrapelowlux - the "linux" way which I think you mean is the "open source" way doesn't necessarily mean you give your code away for free...05:15
danbhfivepsilo-: guess it doesnt then05:15
thyagusam ... how good is the scratches on the dvd?05:15
psilo-danbhfive: it doesn't show up under iwconfig either05:16
mindrapelowlux - if you want RHAS for free they will give you the source CDs... most people choose CentOS for this reason because those are a pain to work with.05:16
smm289dvd is fine05:16
smm289no scrathces05:16
OntologHow do I view STDOUT / STDERR on startup? The Ubuntu splashscreen blocks all this but I want to debug a problem05:16

jmichels1nI need some serious net help, trying to config a USB net adapter via cli, it was working fine a while ago, moved the pc to a diff network and they cant connect, can someone help me please?05:17

GaribaldiI a bit of a ubuntu novice and I'm trying to install kile (a LaTeX editor), and it says I have unmet dependencies05:20
Garibaldihow do I go about properly installing unmet deps?05:20
TACPILOTI have an LVM2 mirror set up, Bonnie++ shows it writing to both drives ,b ut only reading from 1.  Shouldn't LVM mirror stripe read ???05:20
danbhfivejmichels1n: have you looked at the man page for iwconfig?05:20
thyaguuse -f option in apt-get Garibaldi ..05:20
FlannelGaribaldi: How are you trying to install it?05:20
GaribaldiFlannel: apt-get install kile05:20
FlannelNo.  don't use -f05:20
lowluxwhat do i use to protect the folder?05:21
FlannelGaribaldi: try sudo apt-get update05:21
jmichels1ndanbhfive: yes and no, i have read the basics,05:21
GaribaldiFlannel: yeah, I did that first05:21
FlannelGaribaldi: What unmet depends does it say it has?05:21
Garibaldisays:  'kile: Depends: kdelibs4c2a (>= 4:3.5.5-1) but it is not going to be installed'05:21
Garibaldialso on konsole05:21
keppilowlux:  "ch lowlux:lowlux porn"05:21
mindrapelowlux - do you JUST want it so only you can access it or do you want to "hide" it as well?  Because chown and chmod can make it so just you can get to it.05:21
keppilowlux:  "chmod 700 porn"05:21
`MatirDoes anyone know what normal temperatures for a hard drive are?  Or rather, what temperatures I should try to keep it at?05:21
FlannelGaribaldi: Alright. pastebin your sources.list (/etc/apt/sources.list)05:22
danbhfivejmichels1n: I have had success using iwconfig adapter then whtever options I need to connect, and just ignore the rest05:22
lowluxhide it as well..05:22
keppilowlux:  only you will be able to access it when logged in as lowlux05:22
mindrapelowlux - you should probably consider getting an external drive... thats much easier to hide from your parents.  :)05:22
jmichels1ndanbhfive: it shows the ssid there correct but no IP05:22
lowluxi seem to can't get a 2ed hard drive to work on ubuntu..05:22
mindrapekeppi - technically if his dad is an admin he can gksudo a filesystem browser like thunar and find him out...05:22
tj83`Matir, mine runnin at 41C which is high from the hitachi data sheet.. but it runs fine05:23
mindrapeI guess he could remove his parents from the sudoers file...05:23
keppiwell, I guess that's true05:23
danbhfivekeppi: that just links it to the first user.  any livecd can side step that05:23
GaribaldiFlannel: http://paste.ubuntu.com/44441/05:23
`Matirtj83, ahh... I may need to cool mine down... got one up to 4405:24
mindrapeI'd say the easiest is to get an external drive.  2nd best would be to create a 2nd partition and dont automount it and encrypt it.   3rd would be to chmod and chown it and preceed it with a .05:24
keppitrying to hide porn is prolly a bad idea anyways.  The numbers won't add up and parents will wonder where all the missing space is?05:24
tj83`Matir, search for the data sheet on your model.. but i have seen mine as high as 48C but it keeps going.05:25
GaribaldiFlannel: anything look wrong?05:26
`Matirtj83, k, thx05:26
FlannelGaribaldi: hmm, alright.  So, that all looks normal.  What we're going to do is try and install that package (kdelibs4c2a) and then see what error it gives,05:26
hitman1985anyone got a fast idea how to make a txt file out of a directory content ?05:26
smm289well a new DVD is in and its spinning and not doing anything05:26
danbhfivehitman1985: ls?05:26
danbhfivehitman1985: or tar05:26
FlannelGaribaldi: if it continues to give us *that* errr ("but it is not going to be instaled" we go one layer deeper, eventually we'll get an actual error.  Not a "something is wrong!" but an actual description of whats happening.05:26
hitman1985danbhfive, a folder ,  not an archive05:27
smm289nope its playing but it sounds like my computer is possesed and there is no video05:27
smm289sounds like a dial-up modem has taken over my speakers05:27
GaribaldiFlannel: http://paste.ubuntu.com/44442/05:27
FlannelGaribaldi: perfect05:27
FlannelGaribaldi: and, what does `apt-cache policy kdelibs4c2a` give?05:28
hitman1985danbhfive, i got a folder full of files like rar files, and some avi files and mp3 as well, but i dont want to type all of it one by one, so i thought there was a little application / script what just puts that info in a txt file or close to txt05:28
danbhfivehitman1985: im not sure what you are trying to do, but ls and tar both work on folders.  ls will list the filenames of the folder contents, and tar has the ability to turn them into a single file05:28
GaribaldiFlannel: http://paste.ubuntu.com/44443/05:28
hadi57hi, i just got rokr8 mobile phone, any body know how to sync data to my ubuntu pc?05:28

smm289tried using Mplayer05:29
Mba7ethhi ... is there any java specific room here in IRC ?05:29
FlannelGaribaldi: alright, there's our problem.  You've enabled hardy-backports, and that's whats causing the issue.  It's not in your sources.list, check to see if you have any files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and if they have hardy sources in them.05:29
hitman1985danbhfive, not to advanced with ubuntu yet, so i run regular gnome or gui i guess thats what you call that ?05:30
GaribaldiFlannel: ah, ok, I have a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/unison.list05:30
Garibaldi(don't know what that might be)05:30
tj83hitman1985, cd to your dir05:30
smm289try and play a dvd, my speakers sound like a dial-up connection and there is no video.  Any ideas ?05:30
tj83hitman1985, and then ls > file.txt05:31
Garibaldibut it does have hardy-backports in there.  Should I remove that, re-run the apt-get update, and try an upgrade?05:31
bangershi is there a serial console client for ubuntu? I need to connect from my serial port into another ocmputer05:31
bangersin solaris I just use t0p05:31
GaribaldiFlannel: ^05:31
FlannelGaribaldi: You'll have to do some manual tweaking of packages, because that one is already the hardy version.05:31
GaribaldiI see05:31
smm289try and play a dvd, my speakers sound like a dial-up connection and ther eis no video.  Any ideas ??05:32
tj83hitman1985, is that what you were trying to do?05:32

smm289what is xine and why do i want to install it05:33
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about xine-ui05:33
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about xine05:33

smm289google here I come.  ty05:33

smm289can i get the codecs i need from synaptic05:34
smm289package manager05:34
sheysmm289: let me check something..05:34

nathanielnealli get an error while priniting from open office or gedit05:37
sheysmm289: check for libdvd* and libcss05:37
smm289What I found:05:38
smm289Most DVDs on the market today are play-protected by the Content Scrambling05:38
smm289System (CSS). libxine does not provide any code to descramble those DVDs,05:38
smm289because of legal uncertainties. If you still want to play those DVDs, you'll05:38
smm289need a CSS decryption library like libdvdcss that is supported by libxine.05:38

sheynathanielneall: telepathy tells me... nothing... what is the error?05:40
danbhfivearnell: also, if the earlier kernel works for you, I don't think there is much issue with just using that05:41
nathanielneallit just wont print any documents at all05:41
arnellno tried all the F-keys and still the same result... hanging at BusyBox. But booting 2.6.22-15 seems to boot okay.05:41

voraistosHi, I have a question from noob land regarding encryption... I'm not judging the quality of the cipher one could use, but the "password". example: i boot my PC, it asks me about the luks passphrase, which is 20 letters long and made out of any possible character my keyboard can do... This seems fairly weak. I mean a bruteforce attack could find my passphrase rather fast, dont you think ? Thus making any super high grade encryption05:53
Theebshey unless you upgraded, because i had some trouble activating it.05:53

donnygreetings all. i have some questions about 802.11 device support. i've got a Linksys WUSB54G here, and I've built and installed the rt2500 module using module-assistant. i also have wireless-tools installed (apparently; the iwconfig command is available) but when i plug in my WUSB54G, although its lights turn on and dmesg shows some infos about a USB device, i have no new networking interfaces named /dev/ethN. can anyone help?06:18
therockst4r /msg ubottu etiquette06:19
Dfcnvtdonny, perhap you're looking at the wrong interface.. maybe it's ath0 interface?06:20
tj83donny, what reason do you have to believe that the interface is "ethN" ? that is not typical.. more like "wlan0" or similar, but i dont know about your adapter06:21
hmlwhta's a good tool for keeping all your emails local / writing them locally, and having them be automatically sent whenever you connect to a network06:21
Daisuke_IdoDon_Miguel: or ra0, i've seen that common among ralink chipsets06:21
Daisuke_Idodonny even06:21
amt2hi, my ethernet connection is not working; the little lights in the port don't blink so i think it's not even being recognized. I'm in a Toshiba P305-S8842. Any help would be appreciated.06:21
donnyDfcnvt, i will check for "/dev/ath*" tj83: in my past experience, it was eth1 after my wired nic eth0 (it was wlan0 on mac os x 10.3 though)06:22
donnyDaisuke_Ido, i'll check all of those. still i assumed the iwconfig command would know which devices to examine06:22
Dfcnvtdonny, it's not on /dev directory.. only iwconfig or ifconfig would show the interface for that..06:23
tj83amt2 if you dont get a link light.. its likely a bad cable or a crossover cable type06:23
donnyoh right, they don't have fs nodes in /dev anymore06:23

vnixDaisuke_Ido: PVPGN06:24
donnyvnix: you're configuring to build some application. it wants to include MySQL headers when compiling. it hasn't found them in the obvious locatinos. you can provide it on the command line. please see ./configure --help for more info06:24

DfcnvtOrchid, you can make a images of it.... dd -if=/mnt/cdrom0 -of=/img/Spore.img06:27
donnyvnix, connecting to your database server proves that your database server is running, and your command-line client works properly. if, however, you want to *compile* source code that incorporates mysql header files, you'll probably need to install mysql-server-whatever-devel package06:27

Ergo^Flannel: i have hardy proposed07:21
FlannelErgo^: Turn it off07:21
AnAntagento: dunno then07:22
rsc_what's "hardy-proposed" for?07:22
Flannelrsc_: testing packages before they're stable enough to be put into -updates07:22
Flannelrsc_: Its not fit for the general public, lots of breakages with versioning and stuff.07:22
thutoAnAnt: well the sim does work though, cos I tested it on my PC and Mac07:23
thutoAnAnt: I even turned off the pin07:23
dubhowto empty trash07:23
AnAntthuto: yes, but I want to make sure that /dev/ttyS0 is your sim07:23
AnAntthuto: that's the point07:24
Ergo^Flannel: i did, reloaded packages in synaptic, but didnt have any success07:24
spiritssightIs there any one that knows about wireless here?  I am not able to go on wireless with my system or see any wireless network in my area when I know there is some07:24

thutoAnAnt: oh okay, let me try this out, i will get back to you then, thanks..07:25
Ergo^Installed: 2.5.2-2ubuntu507:25

Flanneldub: yeah07:26
AnAntthuto: yes, that's what I want to try: ati07:26
dubFlannel, thanks07:27
FlannelErgo^: Either that machine didn't have -proposed enabled, or the new version was added to proposed.  Either is likely.07:27
Ergo^Flannel: so what do i do now ?07:27
FlannelErgo^: We force it to downgrade. Go ahead and begin editing /etc/apt/preferences07:28

Kartagishow do i increase my swap partition's size?07:31
skinnymg1no i want to stream my desktop to show what i am doing07:31
Flannel!swap | Kartagis07:31
ubottuKartagis: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info07:31
DfcnvtQuestion, if you use swap on your system, would it work without a ram? I wouldn't think so..07:31
FlannelDfcnvt: no07:32
FlannelDfcnvt: you can have a system without SWAP, you can't have a system without RAM07:32
Ergo^Flannel: ok i have that saved, what now ?07:32
Dfcnvtsuppose you have 256 megabytes.. with a swap of 2 gigabytes.. would that help any?07:32
Dfcnvt256 of ram..*07:32
FlannelErgo^: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade07:33
FlannelDfcnvt: That'd be a bit of overkill on swap space.  You probably want about 512MB of swap.07:33
Ergo^Flannel: ok, its done07:34
FlannelErgo^: now you should be able to install python-dev07:34
Theebis it possible to see the log of the "recovery mode" because i saw a "[Fail]" and i couldnt read which package, screen was moving fast. i need to fix that package but i dont know what package is.07:34
FlannelErgo^: also, delete the stuff we added to /etc/apt/preferences, we don't need/want that anymore, now that its done its job07:34
Ergo^Flannel: im not, is it possible polish servers are put of sync somehow ?07:34
FlannelErgo^: You're not why?  What error?07:35
nuccohi, does anybody know where my epiphany downloads disappear to?07:35
Ergo^Flannel: same error, but apt cache says that i have a "candidate" pinned, but installed is still newer wersion07:35
clarenceWho can help me solve the problem?:-/07:36
FlannelErgo^: do you still have proposed enabled?  Pstebin the output of apt-cache policy python2.507:37
KartagisFlannel> in that FAQ, count is 512. if i make it 1024mb, will count be still 512?07:37
DfcnvtClarence, you hasn't stated what problem you're having07:37
clarenceI was said!07:38

clarenceI said how Ubuntu 8.04 on the use of additional special effects?07:39
FlannelErgo^: huh.  Ok, lets try this.  open up your preferences again, change it from 4* to 4.1, and change the pin priority to 100207:39
Flannelclarence: What makes you think you're not already?07:40

FlannelErgo^: I'm sure its fixable yeah, but I have no idea what the issue is.  This *should* be working.  Uh, while its not really on topic for that channel, you may have luck in #ubuntu-motu.  Another thing you could try is setting the bigger version (-ubuntu5) to priority of -1, but with the way the matching has happend thus far (seems to ignore anything past the -?  past the -ubuntu? I'm not sure) I'm wary of suggesting that.07:54

dougskovnix: run, synaptic, some time. its a gui for installing packages. aptitude is my favorite though because it removes orphaned dependenceies when you uninstall something09:22
crdlbogzy: A) extract it to a subfolder of ~/.icons (~/.icons/THEME_NAME)09:22

hanaActionParsnip, gimp is not sweet in my experience. But I did try a reboot and it's the same problem. I am trying photoshop through wine, as I mentioned already.10:20
elzoogAction:  Yeah, but I would rather have stuff that is not commonly used, but I would like to try on the DVD (for example, Rosegarden) so that I don't have to download a file from the internet every time I want to try something odd10:20
ActionParsnipelzoog: not very much in linux is common, all systems are unique10:21
hanaActionParsnip, I just needed to install gecko because the Photoshop setup.exe uses IE, which requires wine's Gecko component. But after I did that it seems like Ubuntu will not read the photoshop CD.10:21
ActionParsniphana: try remounting it10:21
hanaActionParsnip, I did. I remove the CD and put it back in and close it and it doesn't reead.10:21
hanaActionParsnip, it read the very first time.10:21
ActionParsnipelzoog: if you want all the extra stuff then the dvd is for you, id try and get it via torrents as its faster and you give back tothe community by seeding10:22
elzoogAction:  Well, I would say that firefox and openoffice are examples of programs that are common.  But for example, I have QCad on my machine.  That would be an example of something probably not common10:22

WoofWoofWoofI'm using Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop edition on an Acer 5920. Earlier, I shut it down and went away and when I came back a few minutes later, it was on, with a blank screen and a blinking cursor. It turned off when I pressed the po10:34
hanaActionParsnip, I just hear the same sound I hear when I just put the CD in. The drive makes noise like it's trying to read it, but it doesn't successfully mount.10:35

hanaActionParsnip, no. Just one.10:36
ActionParsniphana: does it show up in bios?10:36
stdinbut they can override in their ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile10:36
ghostknifestdin: problem with that one is that it doesn't affect SUDO10:36
dougskoGreyspacebt3: awesome10:37
ikoniaghostknife: you may want to put something in /etc/skel to for new user creation10:37
hanaActionParsnip, I would just have to check. I just took the CD out and put it in my other computer and it works fine, so I know it's not the CD.10:37
stdinghostknife: sudo has a built-in "secure" path, you can't change it10:37
hanaActionParsnip, I'm going to try another CD in this one and see if it mounts.10:37
ActionParsniphana: good test10:37
dougskoghostknife: there's also /etc/profile10:37
ActionParsniphana: another good tets10:37
ghostknifestdin: I understand all those, I'm just trying to get SUDO to also include this when resetting the PATH env variable (don't want it preserved, so that a user can take on the new environment of the sudo'ed context)10:37
ikoniastdin: isn't there an option at sudo invokation to source a file for things like environment variable10:37

br0kkNconfig better to avoid this.  like how /etc/fstab can use uuids, mabye there is something like that for grub config???10:38
ikoniabr0kkN: make sure your grub /boot partition is always on drive 1 then10:38
stdinikonia, ghostknife: the -E variable to sudo should preserve PATH, but I think you need to edit /etc/sudoers to make it work (not sure)10:38
ikoniabr0kkN: then always swap out any other drive rather than drive one, leaving drive 1 in place10:38

hanaActionParsnip, I put in another CD and it mounted on this computer. So I guess the CD drive is also working. My guess is that it's a problem with wine because before wine would run the autorun.exe fromt he photoshop CD, but after I tried to install gecko following online directions so that wine would complete the setup.exe process, this problem occurred.10:39

AbracadabraCan anyone tell me how to list recursively with folder ?11:30
Abracadabrals -ltrR | grep icmpInSrcQuenchs | grep 2008-09-08 | more but I need it to list the folders11:30
unopAbracadabra, list what though?11:30
ActionParsnipvampur: just tell the last line, scrolling isnt cool11:30
unopAbracadabra, what are you trying to do?11:30
unopvampur, it /dev/eda  the device name of your harddrive?11:31
unopvampur,  eda doesn't sound right11:31
Abracadabraunop, I am trying to find all the files icmpInSrcQuenchs, recursively by a specific date and to find out which of those files are in which folder11:31
vampurdear unop how may i get the right name of the drive11:32
unopvampur,  sudo fdisk -l11:32
ActionParsnipvampur: id get testdisk installed. I think yuo can write a FAT to the device11:32
unopAbracadabra, you should use find instead.  something like.   find /path -iname '*icmpinsrcquenchs*' -type f -newer $SOME_DATE -exec dirname {} \;11:33
Abracadabraunop, so I start in /usr/folder (inside folder, there are over 200 subfolders, all named by numbers .... in each of those folders are the file icmpInSrcQuenchs). I need to list the ones that have been updating today, and in which folders they are in11:33
ActionParsnipvampur: yes, testdisk can write an mbr to the device which may or may not make it work11:34
ActionParsnipvampur: you can always uninstall it11:34
vampurdear action i installed testdisk now what to do11:35
ActionParsnipsudo testdisk11:35
unopAbracadabra,  find /usr/folder -iname '*icmpInSrcQuenchs*' -type f -mtime -1  #should list files modified in the last 24 hours11:36
vampurnow dere are option for creat log append file and no log11:37
unopAbracadabra, if you just want the directories these files belong in.  find /usr/folder -iname '*icmpInSrcQuenchs*' -type f -mtime -1 -exec dirname {} \; | sort | uniq11:37
ActionParsnipvampur: no need for a log11:37

valentinexHello i am new i want to install flashplayer11:39
Abracadabraunop, ty, and if I want to check files that have updated in the last 30 mins for eg ?11:39
Abracadabrainstead of the last day..11:39
lmgvalentinex: google "medibuntu repository" add it following the directions and install "flashplayer-nonfree"11:39
carreracan anyone tell me if there's a problem with using "sudo bash" instead "sudo -i", "sudo bash"?11:40
valentinexlmg: how to add directions11:40
unopAbracadabra,  hmm, see the  -newer option to find11:40
unopAbracadabra, also the -?time options11:40
valentinexlmg:  its in .tar.gz extension which i downloaded11:40
unopcarrera, sudo bash does not set the environment up in the same way  sudo -i does .. the former is not recommended11:41
unopcarrera, if i remember right,  sudo bash  is somewhat like  sudo -s11:41
unopthough not exactly11:41
carrerathanks unop, why isn't it recommended?11:41
carreraunop, so I shouldn't use it to run commands like "make install"?11:42
valentinexhow to handle a downloaded .tar.gz file?11:42
Abracadabraunop, ok, ty11:42
lmgvalentinex: that is for local install ~/.mozilla/firefox/plugins/11:42
mrglinuxare there any mail client program that it can separate each account in side bar (like outlook 2003) not each email from each account stand in a inbox ?11:43
unopcarrera, because the environment still has variables referencing your files, directories, etc .. and if any files are created (in your directories), only root will be able to open them -- which is almost never what you want.11:43
carreraunop, man page says:  The -s (shell) option runs the shell specified by the SHELL envi‐11:43
carrera           ronment variable if it is set or the shell as specified in11:43
carrera           passwd(5).11:43
unopcarrera,  sudo make install #should be enough11:43
valentinexlmg:  i am totally new . i should enter that in terminal? i dont know much about computer too11:43
carreraunop, so it seems like sudo -s is exactly like "sudo bash"11:43
carreraunop, thanks. I used to do "sudo -i" before I ran make install11:44
lmgvalentinex: extract libflashplayer...11:44
vampurthe media i mean the pendrive is not being displeyd in testdisk11:44
unopcarrera, it's safer to use sudo -i  unless you really really want otherwise11:44
lmgvalentinex: cut it. goto /home/valentinex/.mozilla/firefox/plugins/ and paste it there.11:44
unopcarrera, though it doesn't make sense to sudo -i just to run make install .. as you can just run make under sudo11:45
zachaWhat's "menu>quit..." called? I want to find out how to add more options to it (hibernate + sleep etc)11:46
carreraunop, so which is better, to just run "sudo make install" or to login to root interactively?11:46
unopcarrera, sudo make install11:46
lmgcarrera: sudo (without any switches) preserves your environment (display, path) which is needed by some programs.11:47
cabi #ubuntuusers11:47
valentinexlmg: home/valentine etc after that i am unable to find mozilla11:47
vampurnow wthat can i do just to format my pendrive as it's not able to read11:47
carreralmg, thanks. Isn't it best to use root's env for make install as in other Unix/Linux?11:48
lmgvalentinex: note: it's .mozilla11:48

valentinexlmg:  should i type that address in terminal?11:48
Slasher`xr600, my nokia 6300 just works when i plug it in, i use data storage mode11:48
lmgvalentinex: you can type in nautilus adress bar, or show hidden files (CTRL+H iirc)11:49
unopcarrera, not really, you just need to be root to run 'make install'11:49
unopcarrera, meaning, you need root's privileges11:49
valentinexlmg:  found it doing11:49
carreraunop, thaks11:49
