Bob123123total noob needing help with ubuntu install00:30
Tritonioi have installed ubuntu on an external HD. Currently I can movbe to to other computers and everything works. If I install the NVIDIA drivers (proprietary) will my installation work on computers with different cards?00:30
redstar66How do you install a freakin theme for gnome?00:30
ActionParsnipDeiselton: mk2fs00:30
Bidgetdr_willis, I have a crt monitor as well so maybe when you read crt-0 you were thinking it was the tv? I have my monitor at 1600x1200 and the tv at 640x480 maybe you were thinking one was the other or something00:30
dr_willisBidget,  normally it takes me all of like 2 mn to get the tv out + nvidia stuff going. Biut i dont recall  trying it on this  nesw laptop yet.00:30

Fish-FaceActionParsnip, hmm00:31
Bidgetdr_willis, ok. do I maybe not have a clone mode because I have an older nvidia driver? Im still on 169.12 and I think theyre up to 173.something now00:31
redstar66Ive downloaded 5 themese and it always says "invalid theme"00:31
dr_willisBidget,  it may be trying one wide mode with both combined. You want a wide desktop? or a cloned one? or a seperate X display on the tv?00:31
XeKtRuManyone knows how to make a custom hotkey to write a special char?00:31
dr_willisBidget,  ive been using clone mode for years with nvidia cards.00:31
DEViUSActionParsnip: i dont find a display section in my xorg file neither the one you posted to me00:31
ActionParsnipredstar66: you just double click it and it installs usually00:31
Bidgetdr_willis, well I want the tv to be a seperate display00:31
ActionParsnipDEViUS: can i see your xorg.conf please00:31
Deiseltonsays its not a command00:32
chris_fosterhi, i installed lm sensors, and it always displays my cpu and case heat at 25C, I know something is wrong. Is that what lmsensors displays when it cant find those sensors?00:32
ActionParsnipDeiselton: what file system do you want to format it?00:32
redstar66theyre all zip files00:32
Bidgetdr_willis, yeah Ive been using my tv out for a long time but I just cant get it to work with ubuntu not sure why its giving me this error00:32

luminerdActionParsnip: Sorry, but Linux is as un-standard as it gets.00:34
dr_willisBidget,  all i did just to get it going on my laptop and its svideo out was run the nvidia-settings tool (as root) it saw the tv as a 2nd monitor. I enabled it with 'twinview' and hit apply, and now the tv is showing part of the desktop00:34
jribredstar66: not really.  They are just tar.gz usually00:34

NewHandFromCNhi . i want to install ubuntu using grub ,without a cd driver . i find a directory in my ubuntu iso  call "casper" . is it contains the vmlinuz and initrd files to boot up ?00:35

Bidgetdr_willis, nah doesnt work same error00:35
luminerdActionParsnip: I'm not disputing its openness.  But there are a billion different ways to theme things, and within those it's very very hard to find good submissions, most of the stuff out there for linux is total unrefined crap.  It all makes it very confusing and hard on the end user00:36
Bidgetdr_willis, well a little bit different of an error I guess because Im setting the tv resolution differently00:36
Tritonioi have installed ubuntu on an external HD. Currently I can movbe to to other computers and everything works.

_Carrie_is it possible to test a 56k modem when you have no live phone lines in your house? I know there's a way of doing such a thing in windows (can't remember what it was called). Just curious if it's possible in ubuntu? it's like the 10th time I've asked in here.. should I go elsewhere for this?01:00
DEViUSActionParsnip: seems to be installed01:00

ubottuWDC, please see my private message01:01

ActionParsnipDEViUS: instead of intel01:01
_Carrie_ActionParsnip, that link which gets thrown on me every time I ask is of no help for what I'm asking.01:01
dr_willisBidget,  you could hit alt-ctrl-backspace01:01
jribRezagrats: upgrading shouldn't remove your programs01:01
ActionParsnip_Carrie_: ok ill find an alternative01:02
dr_willisBidget,  or logout to the gdm screen then restart the gdm service from the console/alt-ctrl-backspace01:02
Bidgetdr_willis, alright cross your fingers haha01:02
_Carrie_kitche, there's a terminal program in windows that will allow you to test a modem with no line attached01:02
=== player is now known as player1
dr_willisBidget,  or kill the gdm service and use 'startx' to see what errors X gives..01:02
kitche_Carrie_: yes all it does it tries to connect01:02

kitchethe_real_player1: here I don't have a -v option for netstat so I don't know about it01:10
_Carrie_ActionParsnip, anyway to determine what speed it's going to use when a connection occurs? I have the 'free' version of the drivers and they said it will only run @ 14kbps but I didn't get any messages about it limiting so I'm unsure.01:10

DEViUSActionParsnip: you ruined it and now you are setting me off?01:19
Bidgetdr_willis, that seems like a pretty major flaw lol01:19
DEViUSActionParsnip: you start something we finish it01:19
dr_willisBidget,  if you dont want to be able to 'drag' windows and stuff over to the tv. You could make a seperate X session there.01:19
Bidgetdr_willis, hm... what would that do?01:20
the_real_player1they only appeard on the firewall gui01:20
dr_willisBidget,  thats how its always worked.. even under windows for me.   Come up with a 'fix or logical way to get around the core issue' :)01:20
dr_willisBidget,  what do you want to do with the tv out? I just drag a media player to it.. and maxamize it to watch movies on the tv.01:20
DrXmount -t cifs //yourhost/yourshare /mnt/somewhere asks for a password, i didn't set a password when creating the share, what's the password?01:20
Bidgetdr_willis, yeah thats what I do under windows and it has no problem I just select dualview and you can have 2 displays with different refresh rates and resolutions there is no dead space at all01:21
the_real_player1what is cifs?01:21
Bidgetdr_willis, if I fullscreen a video now it will take up my monitor as well as the tv but like 3/4 of the picture is cut off on the tv because of the big dead spot under it....01:21
smatzwell i'm very new to ubuntu, and i tried installing apache today.  the installation went smoothly (with $ sudo apt-get install apache2), but when i go in to edit the stuff in my webroot (/var/www), it tells me i don't have permissions :\ and even when i try to go to http://localhost, it returns a 403 error :\ :\01:22
dr_willisBidget,  i have dead space under windows..  it may be you just dont notice it.  Let me check the player on the laptop.. if twinview is enabled correctly it should jsut max to the tv and thats it.01:22

smatzso if i go into the config file, can i just change where apache is serving things from?01:24
roukounsmatz: if you want to get privilleges to edit you have to launch nautilus as the superuser(root) so give the command sudo nautilus and try again....01:24
dr_willisBidget,  i would say you are not noticeing it because of how windows is handling the virtual screens the deadzone does exist..  but on the linxu thing.. I DO recall that after using nvidia-settings, that  just clicking 'apply' makes the changes.. but  Not all apps work properly. Untill you restart X.01:24
=== arooni________a is now known as arooni
Bidgetdr_willis, its not that Im not noticing it, its just that its not there, load up windows and select dualview and oyu will see exactly what Im talking about, windows has 2 different options, there is horizontal span (which does what ubuntu is doing right now) and there is dualview which sets up 2 displays seperately01:25

behbekit gets the ordering wrong on openGL windows01:26
regeyaoh hehehe you have forward slashes that aren't escaped!01:26
roukounsmatz: you can do it from the terminal as well using your favorite text editor (e.g vi, vim, nano, gedit, etc).... if you prefer it just give the command 'sudo nano /the/path/of/the/file' ctrl+s to save and ctrl+x to exit01:26

dr_willisBidget,  for my video player i just drag it over, and fullsfreen it . and it takes up just the tv  's monitor. it dosent  go halfway,  some DUMB apps will still pop up in the middle of both displays.01:38
jribsileni: sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree, yeah.  Or if you want something even easier, just visit http://badgerbadgerbadger.com in firefox and click on the yellow bar01:38
dr_willisBidget,  it runs 2 X servers/sessions  you could have 2 desktops , one on each monitor01:38
Bidgetdr_willis, yeah for me it cuts off the bar along the top, my icons are half disappeared cause they span over to the deadzone under the tv's display.. its a mess haha01:39
Bidgetdr_willis, hmm01:39
curtisanyone have a white ipod 20 gigs? and can you get it to work with ubuntu 8.04?01:39
dr_willisBidget,  It did that Untill i restarted the X server with the proper X config.01:39
Bidgetdr_willis, that actually sounds great... what would I have tod o to switch between them though..?01:39
silenijrib: 113 mb of space needed to make flash work?01:39

jribsileni: no idea.  It needs to install nspluginwrapper and stuff it depends on01:40
Bidgetdr_willis, thanks for the help man01:40
dr_willisBidget,  i would go to xorg.conf and make a xorg backup dir.. move all the xorg.confs there.. and rerun the config tool.. save it again.. and  copy the saved one to xorg.conf.twinview  and restart X. if it does auto change to the old config.. well  compare the new with the old.01:40

teerawii have (problems) installing from tar.gz packages, can someone tell me what package to install that will solve all the problems02:34
gregbradynicodarious: It works02:34
teerawimie package contain all necessary tools02:34
roukounWDC:  use the chmod command to change the permission os a file... if you want to make the file readable-writable-executable by the user give the command 'chmod 700 /path/of/the/file'02:34
wickedpuppyteerawi, build-essential02:35
dr_willisteerawi,  totally depends on exactly WHAT you are trying to compile.02:35
WDCroukoun: I know what directory, Just I have no idea what I should use02:35
gregbradynicodarious: Linux does not without a ton of work02:35
teerawii tried with many packages but most failed02:35

Kelenis there any idea for wine to supports other language in en_US local? pls02:36
wickedpuppyteerawi, pls paste the error message at pastebin so we can help02:36
nicodarious[Solars]: do you see a grub screen when you boot?02:36
[Solars]nicodarious not anymore02:36
nicodarious[Solars]: what happened?02:36
nicodarious[Solars]: you already popped in the XP CD?02:36
[Solars]i get the disk failure and request to pu the system repair disk in ... and yes i did02:37
yowshihmmm what are the odds of doing damage to a mounted partition with fsck?02:37
[Solars]but i can restart it before it does any repairs02:37
nicodarious[Solars]: see if you can run fdisk /mbr from windows02:37
roukounWDC: the 'chmod 700 /opt/lampp/htdocs/wordpress' command will give it global permissions... if you mean this!02:37
Pici!ftpd > curtis02:37
ubottucurtis, please see my private message02:37
[Solars]i reboot the machine after a a shutdown02:37
[Solars]before the shutdown i edited grub and update-grub02:37
nicodarious[Solars]: then reboot with Linux rescue CD and reinstall Grub in it's place.  then reset Windows settings inside of grub and you should be OK02:38
teerawithis is last one i tried02:38
WDCroukoun: Woot! thanks mah fieind02:38
falloreis there a rhythmbox support channel or should i use this one?02:38
dr_willisteerawi,  that can be an issue with compilin things from source.. there may be many "*-dev' packages you need to install to get all the needed support files to compile somthing.02:38
wickedpuppyteerawi, pls do put my nick next time infront if you are posting to me ... type wick and press tab02:38
nicodarious[Solars]: or you could just cut out Windows CD rescue all together and just reinstall grub from Linux rescue02:38
[Solars]nicodarious don't think it wil llet me get that far ... we'll see how things goes with the windoes repair first02:39
[Solars]since its started02:39
roukounWDC: have fun!02:39
teerawiWicked: i was wondering how to do this02:39
Kingsy101hmm I have tried sudo tasksel and I have select lampp but it just sits there on 0% not doing anything.. is that normal? does it generally take a while?02:39
nicodarious[Solars]: ah, just wipe Win'e'XP off your system.  don't you just hate people with dual personalities?  think of a computer with them!  ACK! :P02:39
teerawiWicked: http://pastebin.com/m5dd2f0d7 her is the link02:40
wickedpuppyteerawi, its a gtk package prob .. you either get the required package probably gtk2-dev or something like that or get the .deb which i recommend ... which package is it btw02:40
wickedpuppyteerawi, there seems to be someone named Wicked ... press tab twice02:40
wickedpuppymy mistake02:40
teerawiwickedpuppy: ok02:40
teerawiwickedpuppy: is this fine02:41
wickedpuppyteerawi,  there you go .. yes ... on chat my nick is highlighted as red .. stands out02:41
wickedpuppyteerawi, what package is it?02:41
[Solars]nicodarious don't think that anything is going to work till i get those drives back online02:41
Kingsy101ah, nevermind its just sprung into life02:41
teerawiwickedpuppy: u mean the one iam trying to install02:41
wickedpuppyteerawi, yes02:41
avisi recently had my xserver crash, then when it restarted i got the little lightbulb saying that firefox needed to be restarted ?  maybe that was before it crashed.  anyway, during this state i got the firefox lightbulb, and had no internet connection.  xserver restarted and all was fine.  any ideas ?  my sources is set to download updates, but not install them.  i'm confused.02:42
teerawiwickedpuppy: dict-tools02:42
teerawiwickedpuppy: stardict-tools02:42
gregbradyI don't understand things here.  Linux is supposed to be a networking operating system but yet a common, simple user cannot get the networking working as simple as XP.  I just don't get it.  Am I missing something simple?02:42
Kingsy101hmmm it seemed to be going well but after the installation it said 'tasksel: aptitude failed (100)02:42
wickedpuppyteerawi, dict-tools in the repo .. so is stardict-tools02:42
nicodariousgregbrady: i have one question..  have you installed smb onto your linux box?02:42
crackheadquestion: i really need help getting some wireless networking to work. i've tried everything on the ubuntu wireless guide, yes! still no luck. please, someone with some expertise and patience, please pm me or something..02:42
Kingsy101does that mean the installation has failed?02:42
=== crackhead is now known as xjohnthomasx
gregbradynicodarious: of course02:43
nicodariousgregbrady: if you have not, that's why Windows won't see your linux box02:43
wickedpuppyteerawi, sorry dict-tools is not ... stardict-tools is02:43
teerawiwickedpuppy: where to get the deb for gtk202:43
nicodariousgregbrady: ok, so what are your two machines doing?02:43
dr_willisgregbrady,  you are confuseing the term 'networking' with 'samba/network neighborhood' - YOU Can have a whole network of machines.. without anything related to networkneighborhood/smb/samba installed.02:43
gregbradynicodarious: my XP sees the ubuntu machine02:43
nicodariousgregbrady: ok02:43
wickedpuppyteerawi, sudo apt-get install stardict-tools ... its in the repo .. why compile?02:43
nicodariousgregbrady: now, does Linux see XP machine shares?02:43
gregbradynicodarious: yes02:44
xjohnthomasxi need someone to walk me through wireless setup on ubuntu. i've tried all the tutorials. i know what im doing. yet i cant figure out why mine wont work!02:44
teerawiwickedpuppy: i have faced this with other packes not in the rep02:44
dr_willisgregbrady,  and yes.. samba can be a bit of an annoyance to get going.. and even with windows to windows - there can be issues with it. :) its somthing ive just leraned/tweaked/hammerd on over the years.02:44
nicodariousgregbrady: can you x-fer from XP to Linux with Linux pulling?  how about vise-versa?02:44
teerawiwickedpuppy: if gtk2 will solve it i need to install it02:44
nicodariousgregbrady: can you x-fer from Linux to XP with XP pulling?02:44
gregbradydr_willis: I understand and sorry.  I'm so fustrated02:44
gregbradynicodarious: linux from XP is fine02:45
wickedpuppyteerawi, then lets solve those not in the repo .. lets solve one at a time ...02:45
IntuitiveNippleteerawi: can I give you a tip that will save you a lot of problems when compiling your own packages?02:45
gregbradynicodarious: xp from linux no go02:45
xjohnthomasxdr_willis: do you have experience with wireless setup on ubuntu?02:45
dr_willisxjohnthomasx,  my advice.. run wires. :)02:45
teerawiwickedpuppy: i would be grateful02:45
nicodariousgregbrady: ok, have you, with the 'shared' folder in linux, set the file permissions correctly?02:45
xjohnthomasxdr_willis: not possible.. but thanks.02:45
silenihas anyone made eclipse work in ubuntu02:46
xjohnthomasxanyone have really good expertise setting up wireless on ubuntu?02:46
dr_willisxjohnthomasx,  then get ready to do a lot of reading/research and good luck. :)02:46
gregbradynicodarious: yes....according to me.02:46
xjohnthomasxdr_willis: i already have..02:46
wickedpuppyteerawi, then install stardict-tools via sudo apt-get then lets see what other package you got prob ...02:46
TigranGHow can I make a cd that will autorun a script on it?02:46
dr_willisxjohnthomasx,  a lot  depends on the exact EXACT exact! (did i say exact?) chipset of your wireless card.02:46
silenii installed ubuntu then jdk + eclipse but when  i import workspace from windows all the code has errors like scanner object not recognized and stuff02:46
silenidoes anyone know why this might be02:46
IntuitiveNippleteerawi: If the package is already in the Ubuntu repositories, and you're building the latest version yourself, a nice trick is to install the required development libraries using sudo apt-get build-dep <package>02:46
nicodariousgregbrady: stand by.  installing the sharing for samba onto my machine to see if i can hammer this out with you.02:46
nicodariousgregbrady: i'm going on a personal line.  join me02:47
IntuitiveNippleteerawi: Then, you can build your new source and it will find all the libraries it needs to link with first time with no errors02:47
gregbradynicodarious: thanks.  Sorry for being so down.02:47
nicodariousgregbrady: no prob.  i have done this several times.  now go to the personal line.  hopefully the download won't be too long02:47
naliothKingsy101: you are going to break your system very badly02:48
nicodariousgregbrady: you should see a PM i sent you02:48
iPercyhm wierd on another ubuntu box everything works fine :D02:48
teerawiwickedpuppy: http://pastebin.com/m260ca1a902:48
IntuitiveNippleteerawi: another tip. Again, if the package exists in the repositories, fetch the Ubuntu source using "apt-get source <package>", cd into the source directory, and load "debian/rules" into a text editor. Then search for the line that luanches the packages ./configure script, and you can get all the configure options that are correct for an Ubuntu install, and use them to configure your custom package02:49
TigranGHow can I make a cd that will autorun a script on it?02:49
dr_willisTigranG,  thats normally not done under Linux.  Not even sure of a way to do it.. other then making a file on it called 'RunMe_Please.sh' :)02:49
Kingsy101nalioth - what do you mean? all I am trying to do is install lampp..  could you give me a hand possibly? get me back on track?02:50
=== caplink811-log is now known as caplink811_log
TigranGdr_willis: ok, ubuntu lacks a lot of useful stuff..02:50
fentwould anyone know how to ensure that you can vnc to the login screen even if nobody logins in02:50
naliothKingsy101: i have had the bot send you TWICE the instructions02:50
Kingsy101yea, I followed them and ended up with that02:50
Kingsy101I uninstalled the lampp installation that I had from the apachefriends site02:51
teerawiwickedpuppy: what if its not in the rep02:51
wickedpuppyteerawi, just normal prob ... use synaptic this time .. there should be ok .. or you can install the libmysqlclient-dev first ...02:51
iPercyhm my bad02:51
Kingsy101then I typed sudo tasksel highlighted lampp and installed it...02:51
naliothKingsy101: the URL ubottu sent you is easily followed02:51
iPercyits the same...doesnt work02:51
wickedpuppyteerawi, then compile it .. but for 5 years of ubuntu usage i rarely use anything thats not in repo ... what package you wanna get?02:52
naliothKingsy101: uninstall the lampp thing you got, plesae02:52

wickedpuppyteerawi, bgl stands for ....03:00
teerawiwickedpuppy: Babylon Glossary File03:01
wickedpuppyteerawi, there are things so specific only a few people would know ... i could help with general prob .. not with specific prob such as yours ... sorry ...03:02
wickedpuppyteerawi, never heard of it and never use any dict before ...03:02
abeekynick abeeky03:02
teerawiwickedpuppy: iam thankful for your help03:02
teerawiyour tips is more than enough for me03:02
teerawiwickedpuppy: tips is more than enough for me03:02
teerawiwickedpuppy: your tips is more than enough for me03:03
wickedpuppyteerawi, sorry about it ... check the stardict page for help ... the page you download is usually the first place to turn for help .. not the general help channel03:03
mib_gdm1gcnalioth: sorry for bothering u again, but if I want to dual boot, isin't there a guided partioning system, rather than just manual?03:03
teerawiwickedpuppy: i came here for installation help03:03
dr_willisI though there was Auto/Guided/Manual.. but I always use Manual. for partioning03:03
teerawiwickedpuppy: last favour03:04
shelbyhey guys im having some firefox troubles03:04
wickedpuppyteerawi, no prob .. ask away!03:04
shelbyim running the newest version03:04
mib_gdm1gcdr_willis: which one allows you to create multiple partions without really having 2 do a lot of work?03:04
crzyboi_Laptopshelby, go on03:05
dr_willismib_gdm1gc,  i dont consider the manual method to be much work.. You define the partiiton, and set its mountpoint/filesystem.. takes me all of 2 min perhaps to  get / and /home and swap setup.03:05
shelbywhen i start it normally its pretty much crippled, sometimesd it can go to urls and sometimes it cant but you cant use any of the back/forward/etc buttons and no addresss shows in the adcdress bar BUT03:05
shelbywhen you start it as root its perfectly fine, so i think this is a permissions issue03:05
teerawiwickedpuppy: where to get deb for gtk+-2.003:05
shelbyso i chmodded my ~/.mozzila directory but still nothing :\03:05
dr_willismib_gdm1gc,  or resize the windows partition, and leave part of the HD unallocated. and tell the installer to use the unallocated space. and it can auto-partition the unallocated space.03:05
shelby~/.mozilla :P03:05
* shelby is still getting used to this new keyboard03:06
crzyboi_Laptopshelby, have you played with the about:config03:06
teerawiwickedpuppy: or install a package contain all nessesary tools to build installations03:06
mib_gdm1gcdr_willis: i tried that before and messed up the windows partition, is guided reccomended, i mean i kno how 2 do the manual but i dont want 2 risk anything03:06
shelbyi havent even been to about:config since i stuck ubuntu on this laptop a few days ago03:06
dr_willismib_gdm1gc,  i always use manual normally.  It pays to pay attention I guess..03:06
teerawiwickedpuppy: just for future occurrences03:06
mib_gdm1gcdr_willis: is wat you suggest the guided, or should I use GParted?03:06
[Solars]nicodarious it appears i have other issues... system started to sparoticly reboot ... while in config menus (cmos and supergrub and the like)03:06
[Solars]cmos said cpu temp was fairly cool03:07
schnauzermib_gdm1gc, if you're that worried, i'd back up everything important before you try partitioning.03:07
wickedpuppyteerawi, try this command "apt-cache search gtk2" <-- thats will give you packages containing the name of the deb you are looking for03:07
crzyboi_Laptopshelby, if you dont have any important data within firefox then try reinstalling it if you dont mind03:07
dr_willismib_gdm1gc,  i often use gparted to resize the windows oparttion. leaving the back part of the HD unalocated.. and then  the installer can  auto  partition the unallocated space. thats often what i do.03:07
digitalfiz_are there any tools for the ipod touch yet?03:07

alex1234i need some information regarding switching from windows to ubuntu as a high school student. i want to know advantages, disadvantages, etc. PM me if you wish03:07
mib_gdm1gcdr_willis: i will do tat03:07
shelbyi love ubuntu, im so spoiled that i can install a new program without breaking a sweat ;)03:07
[Solars]wonder if something is over heating now03:07
dr_willisshelby,  or running a virus scanner first...03:08
mib_gdm1gcdr_willis: and about the backing up, i do do that but i dont hav time to wait for a restore03:08
naliothmib_gdm1gc: during your install, you will be asked what t odo03:08
dr_willismib_gdm1gc,  those are the risks you take I guess..03:08
wickedpuppyalex1234, try a live cd .. that will gives ya all the advice you need03:08
teerawiwickedpuppy: thanks for ur help03:08
nicodarious[Solars]: that is ODD!03:08
wickedpuppyteerawi, no prob ..03:08
shelbylol, i doubt ive accumulated a very rare linux virus in the few days this laptop has been alive ;)03:08
mib_gdm1gcdr_willis: i thank you for your help03:08
shelbyafter all, i havent done anything that i could have accumulated any03:08
teerawiwickedpuppy: i can continue from there03:08
crzyboi_Laptopdr_willis, arent there like only 4 viruses for linux?03:09
alex1234i have a lot of experience with linux. i just want to know if its alright to permanently switch to it. is it a good idea? can i do the same projects as i would with windows?03:09
wickedpuppyteerawi, good luck! :P03:09
shelbyreinstalled, still has the problem... when you start it up, it dosent load the hnomepage and nothing is in the address bar03:09
shelbyyou think compiling it would help?03:09
J-_While viewing youtube, my wireless stopped working and, now nm-applet won't prompt be for the SSID key since I reset it on my router. What can I do to fix it? I think I've been hacked too since I don't have any bookmarks in firefox either.03:09
crzyboi_Laptopwait is that all that is wrong?.. the address bar and homepage?03:09
J-_What can I do to fix it?03:09
J-_lspci still shows my network card03:09
wickedpuppyalex1234,  if you got a lot of experience then you should know the answer ... sorry if i sound impolite.. but how we help you if you never tell us what kind of project .. what kind of requirement???03:10
shelbynah, thats not all, most of the time it wont load urls, sound in flash dosent work... no buttons, etc...03:10
shelbyits practically unusable03:10
schnauzershelby, try opening up a terminal, and type "sudo apt-get purge firefox", then reinstall03:10
dr_williscrzyboi_Laptop,  i doubt if any of those you are thinking of would even be considered a 'real' virus..   the few ive seen are  just 'examples' and even they are only just barely defineable as a virus03:10
yowshiis there a way of disabling fsck?03:11
yowshior manually running it without rebooting or damaging a partition?03:11
dr_willisshelby,  move your settings dir to some other dir/name - thus resetting all settings back to defaults.. and se eif that helps. It could be some weird setting/extension messing things up03:11
shelbyno luck :(03:11
dr_willisyowshi,  yes to both questions.03:11
yowshidr_willis: cool would love to know how. fsck is the reason i hate rebooting03:12
crzyboi_Laptopshelby, any specific plugins u have installed?03:12
dr_willisyowshi,   if you are fscking at every boot.. you got somthing weird going on.03:12
shelbyjust stumbleupon03:12
shelbylets see if uninstalling it helps any03:13
dr_willisyowshi,  if using that ext2/3 tool for windows.. i suggest  only using it as needed.. :)  ive seen it cause issues.. you might want to boot a live cd and manually fsck all filesystems also03:13
yowshidr_willis: not every reboot no. but every reboot is one reboot closer to the bloody fsck running and some of my partitions are over 200 gigs.03:13
shelbygot rid of stumbleupon. no luck :\03:13
dr_willisyowshi,  you can set the #'s btweeen fscks and you can easially set some drives to be a different #.  or disable it competely (not reccomdnede)03:14
yowshidr_willis: 200+ gigs takes a while for fsck to get through where my computer does nothing but display the counter for like 20-30 minutes03:14
dr_willisyowshi,  i run limnux on my laptop that i amconstantly booting up.. and i  only see it fsck rarely.. like once a month or so.03:14
yowshidr_willis: what exactly does fsck do03:14
hitman1985hi @ all, im runing hardy heron 8.04 and i got some network printer issues with a hp office jet03:14
dr_willisyowshi,  Hmm.. 250gb hd here.. takes about 3 min to check at boot time for me.03:14
crzyboi_Laptophitman1985, wat kind of issues?03:15
yowshidr_willis: odd mine takes alot longer then 3 minutes03:15
dr_willisfsck = filesystem check.03:15
schnauzeryowshi: it's kind of like chkdsk for Windows; it checks for & repairs errors.03:15
kevinOhello o have like 5 screen sessions how do i kill them?03:15
RyanPriorIs there a way to get audioscrobbling support for Totem?03:15
J-_Is there anyway to scan for a virus on my machine? I know it's highly impossible, but I still may have one.03:15
hitman1985crzyboi_Laptop, i got actually 2 hp printers on my linksys wrt54g, one is an older 2600 series hp, and the newer officejet is the issue03:15
yowshischnauzer: if i recall correctly windows only needed that when the computer was shut down improperly03:15
dr_willisJ-_,  most av software for linux..scans files for windows viruses. :)03:15
hitman1985crzyboi_Laptop, i cant find it in auto detect mode03:15
dr_willisbye all.03:16
yowshiwhy does ubuntu run it in my caseevery 25 reoots or so]03:16
crzyboi_Laptophitman1985, can you find it manually?03:16
shelbydoes firefox use anything outside of ~/.mozilla?03:16
crzyboi_Laptopshelby, im not sure03:16
J-_Will clamav scan every directory I have?03:16
schnauzeryowshi: linux also runs fsck when shut down improperly, on some filesystems.03:17
hitman1985crzyboi_Laptop, it doesnt even really show up as hp... on the router tho, just checked that :(03:17
crzyboi_Laptopshelby, probably not because thats the root03:17
craigbass1976My laptop wireless is a turd since upgrading to hardy.  Is the broadcom driver included running 11mbs or something?03:17
shelbyah true03:17

yowshischnauzer: those only take a minute or two to run. when it goes for a full scan it takes alot longer03:18
shelbyyou cant walk into a linux irc channel these days without having your head removed, im just glad you tried to be as helpful as you did :)03:18
crzyboi_Laptophitman1985, so it isnt a router problem... did you follow the network printing instructions from the manual?03:18

randomlogic78then anyone that knows the port can still login03:19
grim76randomlogic78: did you include a denyusers line as well?03:19
J-_at least it wouldn't de default03:19
hitman1985crzyboi_Laptop, no manual :-( so i thought it might be just installing a driver or something like that03:19
randomlogic78grim76: no, what is the syntax for that03:19
crzyboi_Laptophitman1985, look up the latest drivers on hp's site03:19
yowshischnauzer: so how can i do something about this. if not disable it make it do the shorter scan or something. or manually run it whenthe comps booted so i can have some if minimal functionality out of my comp during the scan03:19

The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot03:47

Davidgfhgfhis there a way for me to install linux but still use the windows bootloader???04:26

jribubbuntu-newbie: you try to avoid it.  It's a lot better to use the Repositories as then you get automatic security updates.  There's also no general method for installing something that "come archived"04:27
SaintYossarianOh thanks!04:27

ubbuntu-newbiehow do i get the new version04:28
XeKtRuMbut I only want to disable 104:28
danbh_intrepidDavidgfhgfh: its supposed to be a good way to try out ubuntu...   If all you want to do is see ubuntu for the first time, definitely go with wubi04:28
jribpryorda: man update-rc.d.  That's what you want.  And if you believe it's not then you need to state exactly what you are trying to do04:29
yowshijrib: i made the atempt form the add remove programmes thing in the applications menu04:29
pryordaIm trying to fing the config04:29
jribubbuntu-newbie: what version of ubuntu?04:29
pryordakinda like rc.conf in bsd04:29

kindofabuzzyowshi, sudo aptitude install zsnes04:29

geniiXeKtRuM: Some bios allow disabling of onboard devices like ethernet adapter, serial port,soundcard etc etc. Might be way to go if the one you don't want is onthe motherboard04:29

ubbuntu-newbieits a miracle i got this one installed04:30
jribubbuntu-newbie: if you upgrade to 8.04, you'll have firefox 3 available to you04:30
ubbuntu-newbieis a manual update not possible?04:30
XeKtRuMgenii, in fact the one I need it is the one in the motherboard, and I need to disable the one from my Ati Card (I m talking about sound devices)04:30
SaintYossarianOkay, so I'm at this page suggested by danbh_intrepid, but I have no idea what any of this means.  Is there somewhere that explains wth this terminology means?  Someday I'll know what the heck all of this terminology means...04:30
kindofabuzzubbuntu-newbie, you'd probably be better off just formatting and installing 8.0404:31
jribubbuntu-newbie: it is, and I'll send you instructions, but I recommend you upgrade anyway since 7.04 is about to reach EOL04:31

danbh_intrepidSaintYossarian: sorry mate, I dont think I can help04:34
XeKtRuMgenii, my MB soundcard it is allready as the default one04:34

izinucsziesemer_, that doesn't always work using the dpkg line.. I'll have ubottu give you a link to fixing resolution and getting the driver working properly.. there is a bug listed in the link about how to place the monitors horizontal and vertical refresh rates into xorg.conf.06:05

Lofde_X    -configure06:07
ziesemer_k, looks like I have to kill X first.  Ctrl+Alt+Backspace is restart.  Quit?06:07
ziesemer_Thought it was "killx".06:08
ahtmly2kwhat is the swap good for...06:08
izinucsziesemer_, to restart x .... ctrl+alt+backspace.. or sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart06:08
geniiahtmly2k: Extending your RAM06:09
ziesemer_But X -configure is telling me that the server is already active.  Do I need to have "X dead" first?06:09

Lofde_Lukas___:  Ubuntus minimum hardware requirements in my ubuntu book say 500 mb heh06:09
Lukas___Lofde: I know, I make the server install and takes that 450 - 500 aprox, what i want its really speed up like Puppy, I dont like Puppy, I prefer Ubuntu for his repos06:10
ahtmly2ki mean what good is a large swap when its never used...?06:11
izinucsahtmly2k, how large is it.. 1 gig is plenty06:11

ahtmly2ktoo big/06:11
ahtmly2kim on a 1.66ghz core2duo and a 2gb ram... is my swap resizable?06:12
jlillywould it be possible to run 2 raid 0's? One for linux, the other for windows?06:13
izinucsahtmly2k, should be but you can't do it while it's mounted.. it's much easier with a live cd06:13
ziesemer_How do I kill X?  Ctrl+Alt+Backspace kills it, but it keeps restarting.  I'm assuming I need to do this to run "X -configure".06:13
brianskiahtmly2k: it's not the end of the world. you can certainly use gparted (apt-get install gparted) to resize your swap partition06:13
brianskiziesemer_: /etc/init.d/gdm stop06:13
brianskiziesemer_: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop06:14
ziesemer_Thanks!  (Why can't I find this on the Ubuntu Wiki, Google, etc.??)06:14
jlillyziesemer_: because YOU haven't blogged about it yet :)06:14
ahtmly2kyes but i'd have to do it from a live cd right?06:14
ziesemer_Well, that's interesting.  I now appear to be at a "dead" console.06:14
brianskijlilly: what exactly do you mean? what sort of controller? hardware? fakeraid? software? both installations on the same logical disk or on two seperate logical disks?06:15
jlillyziesemer_: perhaps try alt+f2?06:15
ziesemer_It echos all my text, but nothing happens.06:15
ahtmly2ki mean i got gparted... but it wont resiza while its mounted... duh06:15
ziesemer_Yep, F2 did it.06:15
ziesemer_What _was_ I seeing?06:15
jlillybrianski: 4 HDD's using a raid controller on the motherboard.06:15
jlillyziesemer_: no clue, but alt+f2 takes you to another tty06:15
izinucsahtmly2k, like I said .. you can't resize anything while it's mounted. There's probably a way to unmount it.. but I'm not sure how.06:15
ahtmly2kehmn... i'm desperate for an extra space for americas army06:15
brianskiziesemer_: you were seeing tty7, which had nothing on it once X was killed06:15
jlillybrianski: just curious if grub could pass off to raid.06:15
izinucsctrl + alt + F2 for a different tty06:16
jlillyI would assume so, but I've also never build a raided machine.06:16
brianskijlilly: the answer is "it depends" but probably06:16
* jlilly nods.06:16
jlillycool. thx.06:16

jlillybrianski: hardware as in a raid card or will the mobo due?06:16
brianskithat way you can have two logical disks (that appear to the hardware as /dev/sda and /dev/sdb) made out of 2 of your physical disks each06:16
jlillyziesemer_: it was an invitation. There's never too much information out there.06:17
dystopiahelp i need to define my thinkpad layout to my hardy heron gnome how do i do this???06:17
brianskijlilly: the "raid" on motherboards isn't hardware raid. you can get it to work, but it's more complicated and less ideal in terms of performance and data security06:17
ziesemer_OK, I finally got "X -config" to just run.  Though I'm still looking for something else.06:17
^paradox^can someone give me a hand? i got a lot of work to do06:17
ziesemer_At one point, I had a console-type GUI pop-up with a list of monitor choices, etc.06:17
jlillyyea... I don't know that I'll even be able to run linux on the compy I'll be building. Not sure if there's support for the gfx cards06:17

gluonmandystopia, what's wrong with installing winxp with virtualbox? I've done it on two other computers (only because my CS class requires the use of Microsoft Visual Studio).07:14
izinucs[Solaris], gui is System/Admin/synaptic package manager .. search for raid.. command line I think is sudo apt-cache -search raid07:15

jim_pdoes anybody know of an app (or terminal command) that can show me the keyboard layout?07:20
gluonmandystopia, phantomcircuit, the installation gets to a certain point (after setting the time zone, etc.) where it says I have 34 minutes left of installation, and virtualbox just resets it and starts again from a prior point.07:20
Baberbullgard4: why?07:21
le_mischajim_p: less /etc/X11/xorg.conf07:21
izinucs[Solaris], with sudo in front of that line.. sure.  Then you could probably "man raidutils" to look  at the man page.07:21

amdpoxgluonman, that's what an emulator does07:31

amdpoxwine is a replacement API, not an emulator07:31
jim_pCaptJager: what does filemaker do?07:31
gluonmanamdpox, well, it's a bit different from emulation as it is actually Windows, where wine isn't actually windows.07:31
jim_pCaptJager: there may be a linux equivalent07:31
amdpox...I'm quite sure emulation means running the original OS in a virtual machine07:32
amdpoxI may be wrong07:32
gluonmanamdpox, unless this is a matter of word-play and we have the same idea but with different words.07:32
CaptJagerI think glum is one but not as good as filemaker07:32

milliganOk, someone explain this to me. I'm trying to install ubuntu. The cd loads and the installer starts. however, when it gets to the mounting of a cd-rom, it says no cdrom is detected. How can that be ?07:36
gluonmandystopia, let me try that.07:36
izinucsWhy would f-spot use a .exe in /usr/lib/f-spot    ?  the file is f-spot.exe07:36
wariskamparizinucs, it was there all this will, only I'm too blind to see :)07:36
izinucswariskampar, was you're old one listed there?07:36
gluonmandystopia, it didn't give me any output.07:37
dystopiahmm ok07:37
wariskamparizinucs, yup! and once changed to new one, problem solved07:37
ushimitsudokijim_p: You can select the language from the login screen. Will that work? I use that to toggle between language on a per-session basis07:37
wariskamparTHANKS izinucs07:37
izinucswariskampar, hey.. you figured it out!07:37
kevin_milligan, sometimes you run into this error when you burn a cd with too fast a burn speed setting. You can try burning the disk again but at a slower speed (4X or 6X).07:37

kevin_Can someone help me with my synaptic touchpad's scroll ability via xorg.conf ? I have the settings as correct as I know them to be.07:39
amdpoxzeno, I believe it's to do with a mounted ntfs-\fuse partition07:39
milligankevin_, alright. I'll give it a shot.07:40
RedWolfLHOkay, so I just got back from my deployment.  I left, i had dapper drake.  Now that i've upgraded to 8.04 my dualscreens arent working quite right.  Seems although I have separate X running on the other screen I am unable to drag applications between screens and still have them run independently...any suggetsions?07:40
amdpoxactually, mine is the same size as my root ext3 partition07:40
amdpoxzeno, basically, it's not real space being taken out of your drive: it's a mountpoint07:40
kevin_milligan, great -- here are my current settings -- which SHOULD work to get my touchpad's scroll funtion to work correctly, but it does'nt. http://rafb.net/p/Z7xHXl40.html07:40
ushimitsudokijim_p: hmm, I don't know if the language selection is saved on a per-user basis, I haven't looked at that because I don't have multiple users. I know you can select the language as "this session only" or "make default", and the login screen will come up in the appropriate language -- which obviously appears before the user logs in. You might have to google or experiment there07:41
zenoamdpox: thanks07:42
jim_pushimitsudoki: what i really want, is the one user's menus, icons, dialogs and stuff to be in german, while the other's to be in greek. Just the enviroment i mean. Anyway, i found something at a wiki so far. thanks07:43

PrinZim usin' knoppix at school^^07:45

gluonmanreinis_ are you using emerald?07:50
amdpoxrmmm, well, a firewall would probably help07:50
HeManrmmm: the ubuntu desktop is usually pretty secure07:50
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).07:50

utnubudnaijim_p, actually i don't quite understand what a kernel-header does?thanks07:50
ushimitsudokiRedWolfLH: Was there a specific issue with 1 giant screen that didn't work for you?07:50
MeVsTheVoicesUse iptables, massive headache they can be, but well worth it if porn be your fave07:50
HeManrmmm: what threat do you see?07:51
rmmmamdpox: for example, to prevent a bug in firefox from allowing aritrary code and i.e. reading my documents07:51
utnubudnaiand how to check if i have installed kernel-headers?07:51
rmmmHeMan: ^07:51
jim_putnubudnai: it provides libraries needed to make other modules and stuff that is directly related to the kernel, like alsa07:51
RedWolfLHwell I like to be able to run wow on 1 desktop and chat and browse the net on the other07:51
amdpoxrmmm, don't use firefox07:51

RedWolfLHalso, it apperas that everything is being duplicated on the screen on the bottom where you can select desktop.  Even though it only shows up on 1 screen I can see the window summary on the other one07:52
rmmmamdpox: yes, I use LUKS partition07:52
ushimitsudokiRedWolfLH: Ah, I see. Unless you window WoW, you're right TwinView isn't going to work. As for not being able to access the second desktop - that's because you probably have it cloned07:52
viverantGokee2:  Do you mean make the window smaller when using the scale plugin itself or?07:52
RedWolfLHhow do I turn the clone shit off,  lol07:52
rmmmanyone uses apparmored?07:53
Finnishjim_p: .sit07:53

ushimitsudokiRedWolfLH: Just use nvidia-settings to set up the second one as a separate X screen. I forget the xorg.conf way to do it :)07:53

pppZerothought so, theres just nothing in the audio menu, so i was lost10:20
AlexW23Who has experience with bridging10:21
AlexW23My question, why does the bridge i created take the same ip from dchp as the network interface it is bridged off10:22
AlexW23If you need my conf let me know10:22
pppZeroi've never used bridging, but i'd say at a guess its getting the same lease because its sending the same MAC address10:23

CaptJagerwhere is that10:28
neggeCaptJager: that's the way you're supposed to uninstall Wine programs10:28

ikoniaCaptJager: you just removed it by deleting it off the disk ?10:28

afallenhopehey having a small issue installing virtualbox. was wondering if anyone could give me a pointer or a direction as to where I can go10:29
ubottuvirtualbox is a x86 !virtualizer. A !free edition is available from !Gutsy as 'virtualbox-ose'. A non-free edition is available at http://virtualbox.org for most Ubuntu releases (help in #vbox) - Setup details at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox10:29
afallenhopehowever, the OSE doesn't support USB?10:29
ikoniaafallenhope: I don't beleive it can do hardware interaction10:30
ikoniaafallenhope: but I'm not %10010:30
afallenhopeikonia, the non free edition can..10:30
ikoniaafallenhope: then use that10:30
prabuany 1 know how to set default OS ?10:30
ikoniaprabu: in what sense ?10:30
magnetronafallenhope, virtualbox-ose, the version we are allowed to distribute, has that feature removed10:30
afallenhopePUEL (Personal Use & Evaluation License) Version10:30
neggeprabu: you mean in the bootloader?10:30
neggeafallenhope: if you want USB support you should install VMware server instead10:31
neggeprabu: you have to edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst file10:31
afallenhopenegge, yeah.. but VMware has issues with the keyboard and whatnot10:31
neggeafallenhope: I never had any issue10:31
CaptJagerI tried that but errors out says the wizard was interupted before filemaker pro 8 could be completely installed but I am trying to remove it10:31
prabuhow to edit tat ? im new to ubuntu10:31
ikoniaprabu: you edit /boot/grub/menu.lst, there is a line in there that says "default" then a number, the number relates to the position on your boot menu, eg: default 0 would be the first os in the list10:31
x3onhey guys, i'm having trouble using my webcam. The camera is installed and works fine, and appears in the kopete config window, but when i try to "send webcam" to someone nothing happens10:32
afallenhopenegge, yeah.. apparently if you don't switch out using the "CTRL + ALT" you jack up the keymap10:32
afallenhopethis is the error I get: http://pastebin.com/m4f67692110:32
neggeafallenhope: that's weird. I must say I haven't used the server version on Ubuntu, but Workstation 6 has worked just fine10:32
afallenhopenegge, yeah for Windows because I don't think there's workstation on Linux10:33
ikoniaafallenhope: thats a kernel driver conflict10:33

the_gameri can't find mdb2 anywhere in the repos or in the synaptic packetmanager. how to install it best?10:33
ikoniaafallenhope well, my first question is why are you installing a package out of a deb on your desktop ?10:33
afallenhopeikonia, because I need USB support10:34
prabudo i hav to run tat in terminal ?10:34
ikoniaafallenhope: ok - so your using the propriatary version, which has paid support as I recall10:34
neggeprog077: if you want something with the Ubuntu flavor you should probably go for Xubuntu10:34
fallorevlc media player is downloading very slowly from the package manager. i'd like to see if i can get it online faster, but i don't know what would be easiest for me to install once i've downloaded it. what should i look for?10:34
afallenhopeikonia, could be. however, figured someone could help10:34
ikoniaafallenhope: best to use the official support as it looks like it conflicts with the versions in the ubuntu repo,10:35
neggeprabu: open up a terminal and write "gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst", then enter your password and it will open in a notepad-like program. Then you just make the changes and save the file10:35
ikoniaafallenhope: make sure the version from the repo is removed before using the official one10:35
afallenhopeikonia, did that.10:35
prabuok , brb10:35
ikoniaafallenhope: an associated packages such as the kernel module package10:36
ikoniaafallenhope: eg: virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.24-19-generic10:36
ikoniaafallenhope: if you read the error you'll see it wants to overwrite the module that is provided by virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.24-19-generic so removing that package should fix it10:37
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 applications10:37
afallenhopevmware is pretty much the worse I've tried10:37
