victamowerI'm running Ubuntu 8.04, this morning my control key had stopped working in X11/GNOME - it works in another VT00:03
ubottugian__: Please don't ask to ask a question, ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)00:03
helppmegui = graphical user interface00:03
pr0faneyes, with gui00:03
victamowerhow do I reconfigure or troubleshoot this problem??00:03
eitreachWhat is the channel for the release tomorrow?00:03
ScreamingMonkiesvictamower: try checking the keyboard settings in gnome00:03
lusiorww: chmod 755, owner root, there is exit 0 at the end00:04

victamowerScreamingMonkies: but no dice00:04
Sylphidpr0fane, 5G is the minimum i would recommend for a GUI install with a separate home partition you could go smaller if you know exactly what you are installing00:04
gian__i installed nmap and i can laucnh it with terminal and i can utilise it with terminal...but....where is the icon if i want the graphical interface?00:04
Dorobo18jpGood morning all !!!  can some one snd me a link to the ubuntu ebook00:04
eitreachrww: Thanks.00:04
victamowerokay, I turned off Desktop Effects and my Control key now works00:04
soundlessScreamingMonkies:  I also needed adobe acrobat reader so I downloaded it.  After 20 min. of downloading,message said it couldn't open.  I have no idea where that file is now, there is no file called downloads that I can find.  Will I run into same problem with windows firefox?00:04

gian__i installed nmap and i can laucnh it with terminal and i can utilise it with terminal...but....where is the icon if i want the graphical interface?00:05
helppmewhy would my giFTcurs download every song as corrupted ?00:05
rwwgian__: install zenmap (sudo apt-get install zenmap) from the universe repository00:05
Sylphidpr0fane, correct .... although larger allows for you to play with more at once00:05
victamowerI turned Desktop Effects back on and my Control key is broken again00:05
lusiorww: chmod 755, owner root, there is exit 0 at the end00:05
pr0faneok , thx00:05
rwwgian__: that's a GUI frontend to nmap. The nmap package itself doesn't include a GUI, if i remember correctly00:05
Sylphidpr0fane, but 5G should be plenty to start with.... you can always enlarge it later00:06
Puritygain term is in apps>accesorys00:06
ScreamingMonkiessoundless: There should be a repositry for acroread, if you just need to read normal pdfs the default software should work fine00:06

ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)00:07
redrebelmailq works00:07
Puritythey dont show up unless u make a shortcut00:07
Sylphidpr0fane, gparted will let you edit the size of the partitions without destroying data (though you should always back up important data first)00:07
Purityor launcher00:07
redrebelwhat about a command to see what emails have been sent and received?00:07

pr0faneok, thanks for the advice00:08
rwwgian__: most packages with GUI frontends will put an icon in the Gnome/KDE main menu. Is there another specific package whose GUI you're having trouble finding?00:08
Sylphidredrebel, look in /var/log/mail.log00:08
rww!repeat | gian__00:08
ubottugian__: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. You can search https://help.ubuntu.com or http://wiki.ubuntu.com while you wait. Also see !patience00:08
Puritymake your own right click on the app then goto create launcher00:08
Bumpheadgian__:  usr/share/pixmaps00:08
bloopletechredrebel: it depends a bit; outgoing mails will usualy appear in mailq, for incoming messages you will possibly need to find the directory holding incoming mail and then run the mail command pointing to that directory (not sure abot that()00:09

w3rd_and im sure they dont let you save files to the / dir01:18

unopw3rd_, you probably want this instead.  ~/filename01:20
w3rd_oh yah.01:20
bobbob1016jrib, http://pastebin.ca/1240183  I actually did put 3 things in there, senicon (both of them), and waterping.  They tell compiz's water effect to do a water ping on gnotify.01:20
unopw3rd_, ~filename  would interpret filename as a user's name - you need the slash to make ~ represent your own home directory01:20

bobbob1016jrib, Sorry, forgot about g++, I saw gcc.01:24
jribkoparg: usa os repositorios com o programa synaptic01:25
Flannelhal14450: Then you can get those packages from your media.01:25

bobbob1016jrib, One more thing, how do I run the compiled code, ./a.out right?01:26
Caoanyone ever used ubuntu studio? if so whats ur opinion of it01:26
hal14450so basically i just setup the server with all the packages and then add the repo in /etc/apt/sources.list eh?01:26
jribbobbob1016: sure.  Or pass -o NAME to g++ so that you can run ./NAME01:26

FlannelJakeMon: `dpkg -l | grep exim` would work01:31
JakeMonFlannel: thanks01:31
JakeMonFlannel: what does "rc" mean to the left of the package?01:32
^Oink^Flannel, Oh okay, duh, I feel really dumb now, i have a goofy font on my terminal. it's k3b and i am pastebinning the output now.01:32
jimmioAnyone here have some knowledge of getting distortion on CA0106 sound card input? and then it randomly disappearing when I start Jack and Ardour?01:32
FlannelJakeMon: if you dpkg -l | less, theres a little header that explains both columns.  But that'd be removed, but the config is still around (you removed the package, but you didn't purge it, so the config is still there)01:33
^Oink^Flannel, http://pastebin.com/m17fc5bf401:33

seivanmusictoto: how did you do?01:46
musictotoseivan: just by running it... i never encountered your problem01:47
FlannelFezzler1: er, oh, doing the shrink/expand thing?  Every sort of disk operation carries some risk of data loss.  But assuming you perform the erase/expand on the correct partitions (instead of erasing the partitions you're using), your risk is minimal.01:47

CardiacKidI'm about 1 week into learning Ubuntu and I want to go headless on a file server I have setup. Do I need to install a VNC viewer on each machine I want to remote in with?or can I configure the box to accept remote access through an IP?02:08
panmengcn02:09
panmengchina02:09
Winkieamt2: hmm, that's an interest problem, i was expecting an issue with your fstab, but i don't think that would affect normal drives02:09
rww!cn | panmeng02:09
ubottupanmeng: For Ubuntu help in Chinese 您可以访问中文频道: #ubuntu-cn 或者 #ubuntu-tw  或者 #ubuntu-hk02:09
WinkieCardiacKid: by 'accept remote access through an IP' why would that mean you didn't need to use a vnc viewer?02:09
amt2Winkie, I just modified /etc/fstab as it says on the link, by adding a single line. I tried removing it but still ntohing02:10
Winkieamt2: you're sure that you left it as it was? have you rebooted since?02:10
spwntare the wine download servers down?02:10
musictotoCardiacKid: you'll always have to use a vnc viewer program02:11
OhmuAll, gparted reports my HDD partitions as: sda1 (ext3,35GB with an old unused ubuntu), unallocated (2GB), sda2 (extended, contains 2 swaps: sda5, sda6 totalling 6 gigs), sda3 (20GB - my current Ubuntu).  I want to shift my ubuntu from sda3 to sda1.  How can I do that?  gparted isn't allowing any moves.  do I have to unmount them first?02:11
scuniziCardiacKid, if you have a gui installed you could set up xdmcp for access.. that's under the sessions button on the login screen or.. ssh into it for text access or combine that with vnc for desktop secure.02:11
rwwCardiacKid: Are you talking about configuring the box so that you can VNC in using a web browser applet?02:11
CardiacKidwould the "Remote Desktop" terminal in windows be considered a VNC viewer?02:11
=== TS69TS is now known as to1
WinkieCardiacKid: there is an RDP server, but it is not particularly well supported if I remember correctly02:11
amt2Winkie, yes I rebooted02:11
rwwCardiacKid: 'cause I remember doing that in Debian a few years ago, but forget how I did it :/02:11
scuniziCardiacKid, you can always run vnc on windows02:11
Hoover_4000anyone know how to install .run packages, i have already tried to allow execution and run in terminal but it doesnt work?02:11
to1how do i go about downloading beryl?02:11
amt2Winkie, unless I made a stupid mistake, then yes, I just added the line, then deleted it. I can show you the file if that's helpful02:11
scuniziHoover_4000, sudo ./<package.run>02:12
musictotoCardiacKid: no... the Remote Desktop on windows is no vnc program02:12

galensI'm having trouble switching ISOs to install a program. I started by using GMOUNT since I couldn't get daemon tools to work.

No, that didn't work, I ended up being forced to kill the setup.exe which ended the whole installation. I then tried mkdire fakecd, then02:17

Hoover_4000scunizi: thats the problem i dont know how to change directory, its on my desktop02:17

FezzlerMy Ubuntu PC keeps asking me to restart?  Why?02:29
Winkiein that case yes, if you don't shut down properly in windows the drive will be marked as dirty02:29
WinkieFezzler: probably because you have installed an updated kernel02:29
amt2Winkie, ok... let me go to windows and try to do it...02:30

ubottuchocohoof: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?02:50
rwwBeta-guy: you can run flash in 64bit, though, it just goes through the 32bit emulation layer.02:50
Skry^Beta-guy, flash works in 64 bit02:50
Ohmuscunizi, the whole kaboodle02:50
rwwBeta-guy: should work out of the box with sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree (which has some extra dependencies in 64bit)02:50
mxweasl43a24: I have installed the wl driver from broadcom and it shows my wifi card as eth1 instead of a wifi card...02:51
scuniziOhmu, I'd use partimage so you don't miss anything and then just put the image on the new partition.. after that you will probably have to reinstall grub02:51
chocohoofokay, so.. i installed 8.10 RC, and a windows XP02:51

duanedesignThe 71 and 96 series of proprietary nVidia drivers, as provided by the nvidia-glx-legacy and nvidia-glx packages in Ubuntu 8.04, are not compatible with the X.Org included in Ubuntu 8.10. Users with the nVidia TNT, TNT2, TNT Ultra, GeForce, GeForce2, GeForce3, and GeForce4 chipsets are affected and will be transitioned on upgrade to the free nv driver instead. This driver does not support 3D acceleration.03:29
PassionFRUI7EAnd I'm running ubuntu in 1400x900 right now.03:29

FAJhi what filesystem is the most compatible between a windows and ubuntu computer?  I am going to format a usb drive, and want a filesystem that will work equally well on both, without the need for more setup05:26
WhiteDieselArtVandalae:  would the full command be -o unmask=777 <mounted folder name>05:27

ubottuakio, please see my private message05:27
SerraphynFAJ. Fat3205:27
ArtVandalaeWhiteDiesel, yes, but not UNmask... Umask05:27
kc8pxy<shameless plug> you gave it away to yoru local freegeek, right??:) </shameless plug> :)05:27
FAJSerraphyn: ok thank you.05:27
sebsebsebFAJ:  Windows can  use the Linux Ext3 file system if you put a driver on for that.  Ubuntu  can read and write to Windows NTFS no problem.05:27
FAJsebsebseb: what would you suggest for the least amount of hassles?05:27
sebsebsebFAJ: which version of Windows?05:27
kc8pxysebsebseb:  feasible ext3 on windows, advisable??  not by me.05:28
FAJsebsebseb:  xp and vista :( unfortunately05:28
CameronFAJ: for least amount of hassels, don't use a computer at all05:28
SerraphynFAJ: Depends on version of windows but all can read Fat32 without modifications to either OS05:28
FAJSerraphyn: ok so fat32 would be the 'best'05:28
egosintrickMixed to actually answer your question- no you do not need to check that it05:28
ArtVandalaekc8pxy, yes, you can I've done it before, and I've transferred TBs of data, and it works just fine.05:28
SerraphynFAJ, IMO yes05:28
FAJok05:28
KoN3533sebsebseb, how do I auto-update to Ibex from hardy?05:28
sebsebsebkc8pxy: well in XP  the   driver for Ext3 works well the standard one   http://www.fs-driver.org ,but in Vista SP1 I had problems, but I found something else that seems to be similar that I haven't tried yet05:28

Bearcathey folks, I'm working on someone's linux PC and i want to get it back to them tomorrow.  They have dial up and so don't do their updates so they gave it to me. I hooked it up to my DSL and let it run over night. It errored out. Now there is now network connectivity and i really dont' feel like spending time fsking with it. My quesition is, if i insert kubuntu disc and do an "install" will that mess everything (format) or just do an update?06:22
annoyedlogged in with the only account06:23

BearcatFlannel: yes, upgrade to a newer version. I have an alternate disc too, but that updates via a connection.06:24
kevipapoannoyed: that may be the issue, since the file browser may not have the same administrator level as you06:24
kevipapoyou say you want to move it someplace....are you experienced with the terminal06:24
FlannelBearcat: What version is currently on it, and what are you trying to upgrade to?  And yes, alternate CD is how you upgrade.06:24

BearcatFlannel: does that require a net connection?06:31

outbackwifipogztimz: ok type dmesg in terminal07:04
paul68WhiteDiesel: also pay attention that the name of the drives are not changing after a dist upgrade07:04
emonkeylixujia, network-manager is afaik only a meta-package with a list of other packages which have to be installed ...07:04
WhiteDieseli feel like restarting and dancing a jig to the startup ubuntu music.07:05
paul68WhiteDiesel: then you need to adapt your smb conf again :-)07:05

outbackwifipastebin the last few lines (assuming you just plugged in the drive)07:06
lixujiathoreauputic, Yes I'm finding it, but it's really difficult to find it's source code!07:06
paul68WhiteDiesel: the samba.config file where you defined your windows share07:06
emonkeylixujia, otherways you can download from the original site: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/NetworkManager/0.6/07:06
pogztimzoutbackwifi: how can i pastebin.. i am on CLI....07:06

lixujiathoreauputic, yes I have07:07
thoreauputiclixujia: to download sources just use apt-get source <packagename>07:08
WhiteDieselpaul68: smb meaning smaba?07:08
paul68WhiteDiesel: yes07:08
WhiteDieseloops samba07:08
WhiteDieselpaul68:  i'm not sure how samba and cifs work together07:09
thoreauputiclixujia: to find the package use apt-cache search <keywords>07:09
msqtHi.07:09
WhiteDieselpaul68:  but the mount is cifs not smb07:09
pogztimzoutbackwifi: i know how to post at pastebin.. but how can i copy  the "dmesg"? as i said earlier i am on ubuntu server so no GUI.. i am using COMMAND LINE INTERFACE..07:09
lixujiaI have tried it yet, but gpg: Can't check signature: public key not found was given07:09
pogztimzoutbackwifi: sori for the caps :P07:09
kc8pxypogztimz:  use gpm.   you have mouse functionality on CLI.07:10
thoreauputiclixujia: to find a particular file use apt-file (you would need to install that and update it) or dlocate (same but faster and only for packages already on your system)07:10
paul68WhiteDiesel: I don't know what cifs is however when you create a windows share you need samba to make that happen, then you have to add your samba conf file in order to go to your shared drive on your network from windows07:10
lixujiathoreauputic, Now I'm sure it in the package network-manager07:10
pogztimzoutbackwifi: kk.. wait a sec.07:11
lixujiaI'll go and try first!07:11
paul68WhiteDiesel: with all the permissions set to allow users to access modify or just read write acces07:11

lockehe actually hates windows and runs every windows app inside of linux08:12
lockei have a real good academic relationship with my professor08:12

lockehe thinks they're retarded, as do i08:14
jim_pubuntuPAGeekz: forget dpkg-reconfigure .... it is useless with the stupidity of the xorg devs. can you exit to command line and try           X -configure ? i will tell you the rest if it works08:14

furankujim_p: nothing keyboard related in lspci, and nothing at all in lsusb08:16
lockeso in a lot of lectures he'll be talking about something and if it involves linux at all or anything advanced in general he always picks me out to give my opinions or answers on it to the rest of the class08:16
jim_pfuranku: somewhere i can see the specifications of it then?08:16
saftarnI deleted the bttom panel and added that stuff to the top panel instead. But how do I make it so when I start an app an icon appears on the panel? There isn't a clear option to do this.08:16

nmh_j2grawmordof: (shopping was a joke)  apache won't serve stuff that is not world readable (anyone can read), iirc.09:32
troubledDJ_: although, you can just send messages using smbclient -M, iirc09:32
mordofnmh_j2graw: apache will serve stuff that the apache user has read permissions to09:32
scientusthere should be a memory wipe option on the boot menu, or at least the memory test program09:32

jim_pBuntu765: yes09:33
kinnazscientus no power means nothing in memory doesnt it ?09:33
troubledDJ_: been a while since I tried it, but I think the syntax is like: smbclient -M <ip/hostname> "Message"09:33
Buntu765:jim_p so what is the next step?09:34
Neaainmh_j2graw: I checked that page of the external monitor acrtivation. It seems the "xrandr" supports Intel and Radeon cards/drivers but I have Nvidia and it won't do anything for me.09:34
