Clark3934I am having trouble setting up backuppc (backing up windows clients via smb to my ubuntu box).  It keeps getting access denied when it tries to access the windows shares.  When I checked the log file, it keeps trying to login anonymously, even when i provide it with a password.  what should i do?00:00

GneaFlannel: well, one thing that ubuntu does that debian does not is the whole do_release_upgrade thing, which, yeah, is what the update-manager covers00:30
PokerFacePenguinuffo: i always recommend alfa 036h to folks...its around 50 bucks and AWESOME.......that is if your marginally supported h/w must be changed00:30

Hckyplayer024onetinsoldier: so then I would be able to use the files on the master in both windows and ubuntu?00:53

Jack_SparrowWebcamWonder, ie4linux is a terrible thing to do to your system00:58
onetinsoldierHckyplayer024: well, uness you want to get rid of windows you'd need to resize the partition. you can have it automatically mounted as fat too as it is right now by adding it to your fstab file00:58
onetinsoldier!fstab00:58
ubottuThe /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions00:58

onetinsoldierHckyplayer024: ok, you're welcome. it may take some fiddling, but you'll probably figure it out. you'll need to make a mount point somewhere to mount the filesystem onto, probably in /media. good luck!01:00

bonhofferTag & rename?01:29
RivitingOneDonavan: Thanks. Next question would be will 7.10 have better driver support with ATI video cards than the 8.10 since it has been around longer?01:30
Uplinkrefefer: but where is ffmpeg? i tried that before01:30
refeferUplink: have you tried the sound converter?01:30
Travisyay it did it!01:30
mordofonetinsoldier: http://rafb.net/p/Se8hiD48.html01:30
onetinsoldiermordof: there are several files that control networking that i can let you know about though, in case you don't already know.01:30
mordofonetinsoldier: anything would be appreciated01:30
Uplinkrefefer: ffmpeg is my sound converter... i just forgot what are the commands01:30
bonhofferoh tag and rename is a windows app . . . any good os apps to tag and rename files (mp3 in particular)01:31
SirWeazelHello, Wow, Its been years since i've logged on to an IRC channel.  I'm new to linux/Ubuntu and i'm tyring it out.  I love it so far, but i'm trying to migrate my day to day activities from windows prog to linux progs. And am having problem with one task in general.... Scanning images.  Anyone care to help?  My problem is that i usually load multiple documents into a scanner and have it autocrop and separate the images, ask for next scan, then01:31
SirWeazelturn them into a pdf, All with one button. (HP photosmart c4280 all in one)01:31
WebcamWonderUplink: I would assume something like ffmpeg -i foo.m4a -acodec mp3 -ab 128k Output.mp301:31
ardchoilleI'm using elinks and would like to be able to view images in webpages, I've seen this done but don't know how to do it. Any advice?01:31
Jack_SparrowUplink, man ffmpeg01:31
WebcamWonderUplink: I forgot, whether it is -ab, or -cb01:31
donavanRivitingone: I have used 7.1, 8.04 and 8.10 and I can say that ATI support is the best its been in 8.10 ... seems to work right out of the box for me ... I have had a way easier time with 8.1 than any other version I have tried01:31
UplinkWebcamWonder: ty01:31
UplinkJack_Sparrow: i tried reading the manual and all i read is about video conversion01:31
donavanrivitingone: mileage may very of course01:32
bonhofferwhat about easytag?01:32
RivitingOnedonavan: That is great to hear. Drivers have been a nightmare. Lets hope I have the same results :)01:32
WebcamWonderUplink: -ab is constant audio bitrate, so there you go :)..01:32

nbeeboomnydevi, thanks alot but i dont really understand..01:38
WebcamWonderUplink: Oh, in order to encode to MP3 you need the one from Medibuntu01:38
UplinkWebcamWonder: bro i have converted files to .mp3 before... :S01:38
Jack_Sparrowlame encoder01:38
omnydevioutside of the raid...doh! do you know if admdm...something like that, or dmraid? i was using dmraid. and i have my raid set in nvidia. just dmraid made my stand alone drive a broken mirror01:39
omnydeviheh01:39
mordofonetinsoldier: i believe that'd be a loopback for your internet address in your host file01:39
nbeebooh shi................01:39
WebcamWonderUplink: Well, that is what my description of the package says, "This package is built with the risky option to support mp3..., there it is in Medibuntu"01:39
omnydevinbeebo - right now I am on the live CD, if you have the Ubuntu CD, you can put it in, select "try ubuntu without changes to your computer" and get back on pidgin and i can walk you through the rest01:39
onetinsoldiermordof: sure, the first one and the last one are... but the middle one?01:40
mordofonetinsoldier: that's what the middle one is01:40
donavanRivitingone:  Well the depends ... I normally just tell it to use the whole drive and let the installer do what it wants to ... if you need to mess with the partitions, because your using a duel boot or something then I would look into it before you start but if its just the whole drive thing just go with what is says01:40
biouserso I can't get rythumbox to play cd's01:40
manning__Has anyone tried using the Creative drivers for X-Fi cards? I'm trying to compile them now but it's hanging on make install...01:40
JairunCalothomnydev: I think that applies to pretty much any SW raid in linux.01:40
UplinkWebcamWonder: so what do i do dude?01:40
onetinsoldiermordof: the middle one is not a loopback address01:40
nbeeboomnydevi, i dont think you know what my problem is sorry.. i ctrl+x a file, nautilus freezes for about 30 sec or generally slow then i cant paste it anymore---01:40
JairunCalothomnydevi: I think grub2 might be addressing that, but I'm not sure01:41
omnydevi@Jair - know if I disable raid in BIOS and just let Ubuntu handle it, or does it need to be up?01:41
RivitingOnedonavan: ok sounds like a plan. Thanks for the info.01:41
mordofonetinsoldier: rather.  sorry, if you type maroon-bells it points to that ip address. instead of anything a dns server would try to resolve01:41
donavanRivintingone:  no problem ... happy installing01:41
WebcamWonderUplink: Are you sure you have encoded to MP3s before?01:41
UplinkWebcamWonder: yes sir01:41
omnydevi@nbeebo - I understand, is this a new install or this just start happening?01:41
RivitingOnewhy does everyone call me rivitingone when the name I see when I type is Xavier?01:41

WebcamWonderUplink: Can you pastebin ffmpeg -formats | grep mp301:41
JairunCalothomnydevi: if you're not useing dmraid, then yeah, you won't need the bios stuff, it'll all be in the kernel. Honestly I've never noticed a speed difference between either one.01:41
UplinkWebcamWonder: uplink@HP-Pavilion:/media/hd1/Users/Uplink/Downloads/National Product/Luna$ ffmpeg -i 09\ Quay.m4a -acodec mp3 -ab 128k quay.mp301:42

JoesephHi. I am trying to fix my friend's windows box. His hard drives both will not mount in Ubuntu live; they give a long error message about an unclean shutdown and NTFS being in use.   I can pastebin the entire message if needbe.01:42
omnydevi@JairunCaloth - roger, I need the raid for Virtual Machine performance :)01:42
JairunCalothomnydevi: since Nvidia's raid isn't a true hardware raid. It performs about the same as a software raid01:42
mordofonetinsoldier: host file just overrides dns results01:42
onetinsoldiermordof: ok, roger that01:42
RivitingOnedonavan: odd... oh well, not for long!01:42
nbeeboFLeiXiuS, i think its under "services" in > sysem > administration01:42
mordofonetinsoldier: so my guess is, your sendmail complaints are because dns isn't resolving to what it should01:43
donavanchange your nick01:43
omnydevii use a lot of vm's with xp for work, I suppose I could just say screw the raid and use each drive for a vm...01:43
biouserrythum box users here?01:43
Jack_Sparrowomnydevi, that would be a good choice01:43
WebcamWonderUplink: Hold on, that is weird, doesn't work on my PC as well.. give me a minute01:43
onetinsoldiermordof: i beleive, sendmail uses the hosts file directly01:43

JairunCalothomnydevi: i've got mine setup as a two disk raid 0. Back when I had an Nvidia chipset I used dmraid and just had the disks with exactly the same partition layout. Then I made the first partition on one of the disks a /boot. then raided what was left. I also copyed the data in /boot to the matching partition on the other drive, for a little added protection01:44

bazhangbiouser, is it a cd with special copy protection; check the case01:53

mordofonetinsoldier: i'll try anything at this point01:54
biouserit is store bought but i dont have the case01:54
onetinsoldiermordof: ok, but anyway, you don't need to reinstall, believe me01:54
Jack_Sparrowdavit, You can change the permission or if this is a one time thing gksudo filemanager it01:54

onetinsoldiermordof: ok, no problem, no hurreis01:58
Jack_Sparrow!fsck01:58
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. 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 reboot01:58
onetinsoldiermordof: ok, no problem, no hurries01:58
davitJack: in the terminal?01:59
bazhangbiouser, no need to have a player, what happens when you try to rip the cd songs to mp3 format paste.ubuntu.com with the errors from that01:59

davitkrazed Hey Jack had to go can you help me out02:03
WebcamWonderJoeseph: Unclean shutdowns leave the NTFS in a special state. They recommend it that you boot off it and do a clean shutdown, and then mount in Linux. I have never tried, but it might just be a precaution02:03
onetinsoldiermordof: also, i want to say that i don't know why you haven't ended your full machine name with a   .    in there02:03
SonyThank02:03

Uplinkhow do i delete old mountpoints?02:07
groogyIs there any application on synaptic for merging two libraries?02:07
WebcamWonderJoeseph: Most people report that it doesn't matter at all. Only the journal is directly flushed, which might cause the loss of data from about 3 seconds of the past windows02:07
FlannelUplink: unmount and remove the directory02:08
WebcamWonderUplink: You can just remove the directories, rmdir02:08
Uplinkty :D02:08
JoesephWebcamWonder: What do you mean 'the loss of data from about 3 seconds of the past windows"?02:08
onetinsoldiermordof: have you tried #networking ? you might want to look at your /etc/resolv.conf file... /hosts.allow /hosts.deny  /hostname ...and type hostname as a command to see what it returns, and there's probably more to do02:10

sambagirlit is new years eve just relax jeez02:47
sambagirlanyway off to church chao02:47
iShockysangkok: I think so.02:47
iShockWhat the heck does this mean anyone? ioctl mcapture failed: Invalid argument02:47
ysangkokiShock: it means that mplayer is using the wrong parameters for accessing the webcam02:47
sirstansambagirl: msgd to avoid the ops02:47
iShockysangkok: What wrong params?02:47
rayluwinkey_: it's an asus card, right?02:48
winkey_raylu yea02:48
rayluUplink: screen02:48
Uplinkraylu: and then?02:48
rayluUplink: or did you want ctrl+a n02:48
Uplinkohhh ctrl! i thought it was alt02:48
rayluUplink: oh, sorry. ctrl+a c02:48
ysangkokiShock: its just the arguments (options) that you passed to mplayer on the command line02:48
ysangkokiShock: if mplayer works mencoder ought to work too02:49
ysangkokiShock: and mencoder can stream02:49
rayluUplink: ctrl+a-n and ctrl+a-p are next and previous02:49
Uplinkraylu: im a bit confused... im holding ctrl+a and n02:50
Uplinkhow can i tell if im in screen? and what window im in02:50
ysangkokiShock: see the man page http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/man/en/mplayer.1.html i got it to work by trying different values in the "outfmt" field02:50
rayluUplink: the - means "and then", not "with"02:51
rayluUplink: so press "ctrl+a" first, then "c"02:51
iShockysangkok: What commands should I use for mencoder?02:51
Uplinkraylu: ok ty ^^02:51
ysangkokiShock: if you use -tv outfmt=help you will get a list of outfmt's02:51
rayluwinkey_: PCI bridge: nVidia Corporation Device 05b102:51
rayluwinkey_: er, oops02:51
rayluwinkey_: http://git.alsa-project.org/?p=alsa-driver.git;a=blob_plain;f=utils/alsa-info.sh02:51
rayluwinkey_: run that, please02:51
ysangkokiShock: the command for mencoder is nearly the same as for mplayer02:51
rayluwinkey_: wait... http://hg.alsa-project.org/alsa/raw-file/tip/alsa-info.sh02:51
ysangkokiShock: but only try to stream once you have playback working in mplayer02:51
rayluUplink: and as far as whether or not you're in screen, ctrl+a-d will get you out02:52
iShockysangkok: What would you suggest?02:53
ysangkokiShock: try different values in the outfmt field02:53
ysangkokiShock: also try different height and widths, like 640x480 and 320x24002:54

iShock- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.02:56
rayluwinkey_: wow. i have no idea then02:56
mordofok... onetinsoldier: atm i`m on my server, i plugged it directly into my modem02:57
winkey_raylu if it don't show up in lspci couldn't we assume the thing is off or disabled somehow?02:57
ysangkokiShock: make sure you have the newest mplayer. i had crashes too but i found the parameters to get it working with no crashing.02:57
iShockAnyone got a fix for this?02:57
iShockioctl mcapture failed: Invalid argument02:57
mordofonetinsoldier: so it`s an issue with routing between my router and modem - only for my server.. which is really odd02:58
ysangkokiShock: you can try to build mplayer from source with debug flags. you can make backtrace and see if its a mplayer bug02:58

ysangkokiShock: if you have the newest kernel theres probably not more you can do about the dmesg's02:59
winkey_raylu not me personally, over at a neighbors, he said it worked on win03:00
ysangkokiShock: but as i said, i got it working even though it crashed with some parameters. try changing width and height.03:00
ysangkokiShock goodnight03:00
onetinsoldiermordof: thank you for letting me know. :-)03:00
mordofonetinsoldier: np03:01
Gun_SmokeIf I have two NIC eth1 one connected to the modem and eth2 connected to the router, do I just need to bridge them to get connectivity or would I need to setup a dhcp server as well?03:01

FlannelCpudan80: v3 was delayed a few times until it was too late to include in Intrepid.  It's in Jaunty, and should be in intrepid-backports sometime.  There's a PPA with v3 out there, it may or may not be active (it was taken down for a bit due to some stability issues)03:43

onetinsoldierkeanu: ok, now, it looks win98'ish due to what myconid said. so how that menu bar looks will depend on what window manager you are using03:51
csc_bazhang, actually i have an issue related to squashfs: i have done a   customized livecd, but it breaks after initramsfs. basically casper.log says it cannot mount the squashfs file as a loopback device because of an "invalid argument". it's interesting to know that i can mount it manually from the remastered os, but not from within busybox, as i said03:51

bazhangsheena1, whom are you addressing? put their nick in your question03:57

Brandon1Anyone got a minute for a problem I encountered after using wubi installer?03:57
onetinsoldierkeanu: hmmm, now that is interesting. using any custom theme or anything? are you in compiz? or metacity? i doubt your missing a lib03:58
earthmeLoncsc_  after you've installed from the cd, remove it and put it in another room.  Then reboot the machine03:58

jtierHi guys, is there a way to sniff hub traffic using netstat? I want find out number of connections all users have open03:59
keanulumpycam, k, thanks03:59
csc_bazhang, not exactly. i do not want a persistent live cd..   i want a livecd that  can install itself on an hd (without persistent modifications, as the cd wirtes everything in memory). ok. FURTHERMORE i want to be able to remaster the hd and all its modification back to the a livecd again. remasterys could do that the first "round", but not the second, because of a damn mounting problem with squashfs03:59
onetinsoldierkeanu: could be the custom theme... might have changed the window decorator. i'm not sure. and i'm not sure how high of visual settings you'd need for compiz, but i wouldn't think that would matter. yes, the theme is my guess too04:00

lumpycamuntermensch: you have a touchpad? tap twice04:39
LexdaThought tapping twice was just the equivalent of a doubleclick?04:39
Shadow_Hunter91Yes it is :)04:40
idea4goodhi my wireless network doesnt help can anyone please help me04:40
Lexdaidea4good, please explain more.04:40
Gneaidea4good: it's still broken?04:40
shivamibtapping twice on a touchpad right now would be incredibly difficult04:41
Lexda(For what it's worth, wireless networks can be a real pain in the ass to set up in 8.10 even...I really hope that's something they improve upon in future versions...)04:41
Cpudan80Lexda: what is hard about it exactly?04:41
idea4goodi am using 7.10 intel pro wireless 3945 abg04:41
GneaLexda: please do watch your lanuage in here. Believe it or not, we do get younger people in here.04:42
LexdaGnea, my apologies. Won't happen again.04:42
idea4goodok the problem is my wireless is bein shown by network manager with good signal strenght04:43
Gneaidea4good: why not 8.04 or 8.10?04:43
Cpudan807.10 ?04:43
Cpudan80maybe that was a typo04:43
ghost3wow04:43
idea4goodGnea :04:43
Cpudan80anyway - continue04:43
LexdaCpudan80, just that they aren't plug 'n' play like in Windows. To get mine to work I had to do quite a bit of finegalling, and culminated in me having to hook it up to a wired connection to get the required stuff (Windows Wireless Drivers).04:43
idea4goodit was working ine efore04:43
Cpudan80Lexda: oh your talking about the drivers -- yeah thats a pain04:43
Gneaidea4good: do you have access to the router directly?04:43
idea4goodi just added a new wirless network04:44
idea4goodand hten it broke04:44
Cpudan80Lexda: I thought you meant configuring the SSID and stuff04:44
LexdaOh. No, not at all, that was thankfully automatic.04:44
idea4goodnew wireless is secured Yes i haave access ot router04:44
jimi_hendrixLexda, ok so i installed the driver04:44
GodfatherofEire2Anybody know how to grab the IDs of mouse buttons, cause I cant seem to get mine quite working right.04:44
jimi_hendrixnow do i hit configure network?04:44
Gneaidea4good: have you tried resetting the router?04:44
idea4goodyes04:44
LexdaNope04:44
LexdaThat didn't do anything for me.04:45
idea4goodok FYI when i do sudo dhclient wlan004:45
Gneaidea4good: which router do you have? linksys?04:45
LexdaJimi_Hendrix, look at your system tray.04:45

ghost3is usb 3.0 in the works?04:51
jimi_hendrixLexda, still nothing04:51
Gneaghost3: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB#USB_3.004:52

Guest63949i dont know who helped me ... caus its text everywhere.. and i donno how to scroll in this, but the dpkg-reconfigure dint gave me anything abt any resolution settings.. just kb and mouse n stuff05:15

mattycozeis Hcitool even available in the 8.10 distro?05:16
maximus_1how does one even /use/ a source deb?05:17
Gneakantxx: as I tried to tell you before you left earlier, there is already a wireless manager with ubuntu05:17
jimmionickrud: Hmm...? It's like missing audio data in the recording... driving me nuts, not to mention pulseaudio just crashed as I was running a game in Blender and exited...05:17
kantxxGnea: what is it??05:17
kantxxGnea:  just see the manual config one05:18
Guest63949ahhh! can anyone give me a good console irc... so i can scroll text and whatever05:18
Gneakantxx: are you familiar with the network manager icon on the upper-right on the desktop?05:18
nickrudjimmio, I probably shouldn't even talk about pulseaudio, it makes the veins in my head pulse05:18
kantxxGnea: yes but it doesnt detect networks05:18
kantxxGnea: i have to manually enter the info05:18
Gneakantxx: if your wireless card is configured correctly, then detected networks will show up there when you click on it05:18
rayluGuest63949: you could try irssi, but i'm sure ircII has a way to scroll. try pageup or ctrl+f/ctrl+b05:19
Gneakantxx: try enabling the broadcast of your ssid05:19
Tom_1223How do I create/renew ath0? I've got eeexubuntu and after a reboot, iwconfig shows only eth0 and lo, no ath0 or other wireless capable devices.05:19

Guest63949k.. brb.. gonna try irssi05:20
Tom_1223raylu: why not?05:20
Gneakantxx: don't know what to suggest then.05:20
rayluTom_1223: oh, you already had it set up, nevermind.05:20
rayluTom_1223: the issue could be that your modprobe.d isn't configured correctly05:20
kantxxGnea: ..05:20
Gneakantxx: i've tried doing it manually as well, and it sort of works, but really, it seems to just work right when the ssid is enabled to broadcast05:20

pidusyesterday while i had an external HDD connected, and data being transferred without any problems there was a power failure. Since then whenever i connect the HDD the hotplugin(automount) point to the local HDD and when i try to manually mount /dev/sdb1 the prompt shows up I/O error, even though the disk is getting mounted perfectly on a mac machine.05:27
macoGuest61861: oh you have to already be in X to do it05:27
onetinsoldierGuest61861: Shift+Page Up and Shift+Page down05:27
rayluGuest61861: shift+pageup05:27
crimsunmattycoze: yes. the program was compiled against an older libbluetooth-dev that provides an older library.05:27
macoGuest61861: it lets you change your running X settings05:27
pidusthis is the error message that shows up when trying to mount using sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 external/ http://paste.ubuntu.com/97365/05:27
dexiDoes anyone know what could be the cause of really slow downloads?05:27
Guest61861allright.05:27
crimsunmattycoze: the program needs to be compiled against the newer libbluetooth-dev.05:27
BinaryBoy001when using sound juicer to rip a music CD, should VBR quality be set high or low?  10 or 0, which is better?05:27
mattycozecrimsun ahh;05:28
macokantxx: it's the little applet with 2 little computers in the notification area05:28
pidusis there no way to fix this problem..without going to windows?05:28
MindVirusIs the google app engine in the repos?05:28
raylumattycoze: no idea. i'd consider purging both the app you're using and libbluetooth and installing again.. otherwise, i have no idea, sounds like a packaging error05:28
kantxxmaco: thats the one.. i go to the wireless tab and can add the ssid info manually.. just no listing of scanned networks05:28
Tom_1223raylu: lsmod | grep ath returns nothing and iwconfig still returns only eth0 and lo05:28
raylucrimsun: the package should depend on a newer version05:28
Guest61861raylu: ok.. somethings wrong lol.. caus it doesnt scroll. lol. i think i got big problems :P05:28

Guest61861onetinsoldier: im trying to scroll on the alt-3 page05:29
GodfatherofEireso nobody knows how I might find out the ID for the mouse buttons05:29
crimsunraylu: (i.e., libbluetooth2 was used at the time of compile instead of libbluetooth3; more than likely the former was removed due to the apparent abi & api bump)05:29
pidusmaco: i tried doing that...but http://paste.ubuntu.com/97365/ is what it shows05:29

Jack_SparrowGodfatherofEire, Did you real the link on setting up mouse buttons?05:30
GodfatherofEireJack_Sparrow, yes, I did05:30
onetinsoldierGuest61861: scrolling up and down won't work if you switch, it loses the buffer on the tty. to scroll, you have to stay in the tty that has the pages you need05:30

Guest61861onetinsoldier: crap.. could just scroll through the apt-get thingey05:33
WebcamWonderBladezor: ./notepad++.exe > output?05:33
rayluTom_1223: you could try installing linux-backports-modules-intrepid05:33
rayluTom_1223: that will give you the ath5k module. actually05:33
rayluTom_1223: try "sudo modprobe ath5k" first05:33
dexi.... Does anyone know why linux would have a slow download (around 20kb/s) compared to windows (around 150kb/s)05:33
Guest61861onetinsoldier: isnt there a way i could configure my xorg.conf file to force a resolution?05:33
nickrudGodfatherofEire, run xev in a terminal, then click each button with the pointer in the window. In the mass of scrolling data, you'll see the button numbers05:33
pidusmaco: yup05:33
rayluTom_1223: wait, nevermind. that won't do anything05:33
Tom_1223raylu: ath5k not found.05:34
macoGuest61861: er...can you write an xorg.conf by hand? because there is no xorg.conf anymore by default05:34
Tom_1223raylu: If i recall correct, I should be on the atheros driver for the eeepc wireless card05:34

macoxd4: -_- that script is so wrong. most of those things only need to be done once. only the last line (sleep 60s...) would need to be done each startup. and the trouble is that that script is executed before the other startup scripts you've got. preferable would be for it to start last05:43
onetinsoldierGhostindark: keep asking every few minutes if you have to. have you looked at   tcpdump?05:43

onetinsoldierkonzept: 1) determine what display_manager you use with --> cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager  2) log out of x-windows  3) Ctrl+Alt+F1  4) login to the console termminal  5) sudo invoke-rc.d <display_manager> stop (for example -->  invoke-rc.d gdm stop  <--, this shuts down x-windows completely)  6) sudo Xorg -configure (this command should create a full xorg.conf.new file in your users home directory, also check /root)06:18
onetinsoldierkonzept: 7) make a backup of your old xorg.conf file first if you wish --> sudo cp -v /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old  8) sudo cp -v /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf  9) now it's time to try your new xorg.conf file by starting x-windows back up --> sudo invoke-rc.d <display_manager> start06:19

Son_of_DemetriusI just installed Ubuntu 8.10...and that's it...I've done nothing else08:02
instaand the general consensus was that compiling from source was a pain, and to just follow instructions on ubuntuforums.com?08:03
instaso, um, if i ignored everyones suggestions and compiled from source, and now i have no sound cards, how do i dig back out of that?08:03

Son_of_DemetriusCakewalk, CDex, Audacity, EAC, Ulead08:06

karthik_ziroday: But i'm looking for development part how it was done back end08:19
Brack10now I just don't have window decorations at all08:19
rayluBrack10: why would a window decorator affect your menubar?08:19
iShockAfter I add an alias to .bashrc, how do I make it take affect?08:19
maco_Brack10: you can install fusion-icon to make it easy to switch decorators easily.  emerald is really not something i'd recommend though. it's highly unstable and no longer being developed (ie. the bugs that make it crash all the time won't be fixed)08:19
maco_iShock: "sourch ~/.bashrc"08:19
Brack10I see08:19
Brack10noted08:19
zirodayraylu: hmm? I never explained to him how to add it to the autostart, there is a nicer way with System > Admin > Sessions08:19
maco_iShock: or start a new terminal08:19
=== tritium_ is now known as tritium
rayluziroday: but putting emerald --replace there just makes it load gtk and then replace it with emerald every time08:20
instaraylu: installing another sound card made alsa see all 3 cards again ...08:21

ballIn ascending order of goodness: composite -> S-Video -> RGB -> HDMI10:03
thenetduckball is it possible with the cable cord "RF" i believe10:04
miranda_psiphrostbite: it is a commandline tool - if you want to do a lot of files at once you can just make a simple script to do that for you (basic command is convert input.jpg output.png)10:04

thenetduckball ... ok. so my tvtuner card has 1 component cable (not sure why only one but oh well), 1 s-video, and 2 RF cables. I don't think I can use component because there are enough spaces10:06
ballthenetduck: you probably have component from your cable box to your tv10:06

ubottuEmesene is an instant messenger for the WLM network. See http://emesene.org for more information.11:50
rwwcoreyu: Because that message means that the kernel was passed the "vga=315" option, and that it doesn't recognize 315 as a valid graphics mode. Probably the easiest way to fix it is to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst, find all the places in there where vga=315 appears, and edit them to use a correct video mode or delete them.11:51
