Dr_willis_Brawling,  kde and gnome both can browse for samba shares.. You coudl always enter the path directly   //fileserver/sharename   or mount them manually, or from fstab.      depending on what youa re doing with them. Its often best to just Mount them to a local directory00:32

hollywoodbaleksN^: you would want to upgrade to 7.10, then 8.04.  You would want to keep 8.04 on your server since that is a LTS release, and will receive updates for a much longer time than a regular release00:48

tyranosZellSF, read carefully before doing anything , all u have to do is to add that repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list and then u get another kernel so u wont lose anything00:53
jzittTrying to figure out how to start a nautilus extension, since it didn't appear to have started automatically.00:54

ZellSFso other than the bios , how do i disable wireless?01:16
gopphi when I try to join the domain I get "ads_connect: No logon servers"01:17
dexiZellSF: pull wireless card out! :D01:17
ZellSFit's not a card you can pull out without a lot of wokr01:17
jzittZellSF: I'm using eeeBuntu on my Eee 701 successfully.01:17
norcim122how do you set networking setting perminently? i need to change MTU setting?01:17
ZellSFas said I can't actually change distrobution01:17
dexioh! does anyone know if its possible to dock pidgin to the side, so that things dont expand behind it?01:18
hspaansnorcim122: setting mtu-setting shouldn't be needed nowadays01:19

Teknohello. I installed openbox and now I don01:22
Teknot have any soudn at all01:22
hspaansnorcim122: you're running a firewall somewhere or changed other settings?01:23
nakdexi: Being as you're using KDE, you would find kdm more fitting for your needs. There isn't a substancial difference, apart from the number and sorts of packages you require; with GDM you need gnome/gtk libraries, with kdm you need k/qt libraries, which you probably already possess.01:23
nakdexi: With kubuntu-desktop, you already have kdm.01:24
HashishaninIf you've just run a program in linux and you want to know the exit status what can you type?01:24
hspaansnorcim122: 576 is minimum MTU size is pMTU-discovery for example is working correctly01:24

sebastiannorcim122: but it dont work01:28
GneaJohnramb00: no, you'd need to do it from a computer. a camera can't do that, although it would probably make a nice video. :)01:28
nakIdleOne: I've never used samba, but I expect that you can do it via `/etc/init.d/samba restart'01:28
vostro1510what user are youusing01:28
vostro1510it should not be a problem in default user.01:28
vostro1510I am a newbie user01:28
hspaansnorcim122: check firestarter? most network issues come for users running firewalls without understanding it01:28
vostro1510And I just put my pendrive and use it.01:28
nakvostro1510: Please refrain from using `\n' where unneccessary.01:28

norcim122hspaans: firestarter has the most basic interface . I dont see how i can get that wrong01:30
norcim122hspaans: no router  just cable01:30
dexinak: im just going to restart01:30
nakdexi: Why are you using debconf?01:30
hspaansnorcim122: meaning?01:30
norcim122hspaans: do you have alot in your  interfaces file?01:31
dexinak: i did the thing you told me "dpkg-reconfigure kdm"01:31
dexiand thats what i got01:31
hspaansnorcim122: no, because its not needed01:31
nakdexi: What do you hope to solve by restarting?01:31
norcim122hspaans:  i have direct connection to cable modem01:31
yoyit2how do you install gpartition?? its NOT WORKING for me :(01:31

macoyoyit2: with the lowercase g01:31
nakyoyit2: Please don't shout.01:31

nakyoyit2: `sudo apt-get install gparted'.01:32
Gneayoyit2: sudo apt-get install gparted01:32
maconak: what shouting?01:32
hspaansnorcim122: skip the firewall thingie and reboot to make sure you're machine is clean01:32
yoyit2maco: yeah i kinda got that, hence the **01:32
dexinak: well i had the window after doing apt-get install kubuntu-desktop asking me to choose gdm or kdm, and i never chose, and now i dont see the window anymore, so i assume the process that it had locked it still locked, and by restarting it will not be locked anymore01:32
norcim122yoyit2: did you try to use add/remove to reinstall?01:32
sebastiannorcim122: thx, but i had to force mount it, but it workes, thx a lot01:32
macoyoyit2: lowercase though, not capital G. the terminal is case-sensitive01:32
Gneanak: there's a difference between just a few words and an entire sentence being capitalised.01:32

rayluSquideshi: you can tell which driver is being used by looking at /etc/X11/xorg.conf. if you happen to know the names of the modules, you can look for them in the log to see if they're loaded01:47
lahorimrwes: not yet, not sure what to search for01:47
norcim122hspaans: oh never mind01:47
rayluSquideshi: the nvidia packages are named nvidia-glx-### for the corresponding nvidia build01:47
canthus13How do you get the size of a single directory and it's contents from the command line?01:47
Squideshiraylu: No driver is specified in xorg.conf. It's my understanding that xorg now atodetects.01:47
rayluSquideshi: and the nvidia kernel module package has a similar name. though there is a meta package for both nvidia and ati drivers that depends on the latest one01:47
norcim122hspaans: where are the network defaults located?01:47
ziggyHhi all01:47

Dante123hi, my kids was playing game under wine....and screwed up the screen.  Now lcd monitor says input not supported....how can I change/fix the resolution??01:57
Treehuggerhow do you install ATI drivers using terminal?01:57
Gneayoyit2: so, by 'installed thru vista', you mean you used wubi?01:57
Cameron`hspaans: its totem that I am using.  I'll try waiting a minute - but I am sure I have tried that before01:57
yoyit2Gnea: sure01:57
Roger_Dantel123, relog01:58
Dante123rebooting and going into recovery console gets me screen back, but nvidia graphics driver is not running...and upon reboot back to same input not supported error01:58
Roger_wine does that to me to sometimes01:58
hspaansCameron`: it works is most cases, hopefully its fixed in 9.04 or you need to go back to 8.04 :(01:58
Gneayoyit2: not a good move. when you install via wubi, you're installing to a filesystem contained within a file on vista's filesystem. by getting rid of vista, you have now trapped your ubuntu installation.01:58
Dante123Roger_ relog....did that ....no help01:58
Roger_sorry then01:59
Cameron`hspaans: I wasn't even running totem before it happened.. but when I start totem it has no sound.  if I run totem when I first boot, it works fine, but I then close totem, surf the web or do some work for a while, then totem has no sound01:59
Dante123get same error01:59
onetinsoldierSquideshi: ok, this is how i would go about finding out, since, as you said, the filenames don't exactly match package names...   locate intel_drv.so && dpkg -S /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/intel_drv.so -->xserver-xorg-video-intel01:59

Jack_SparrowGnea, thanks02:01
Dante123Jack_Sparrow yes, he was playing game...and I dont know what he did...but the screen went black....I think it is a resolution thing...because all is fine in recover mode....BUT that means nvidia driver not running.....02:01

Gneayoyit2: yeah, reinstall, from the ground-up.02:01

=== ShockUBT is now known as Staticshock

m00tkrazed: conky03:58
omny_devi@Mr_Bunny - I want call of duty 4 to work on it03:58
Mr_Bunny_omny_devi: that means within the wine source code directory you decompressed03:58
Mr_Bunny_omny_devi: you're compiling git or something?03:58
anthonyisn't there a way to fetch a webpage from the CLI?03:58
Chris_ChaseThe_Rebel, my computer detects it but I am unable to connect to the internet03:58

omny_devi@Mr_Bunny - Negative. Just did that build-dep and that is it so far. Before I can compile I need to make a lot of links so the compile doesn't fail. But it said to make the links in the wine tree, which I have no idea what that is04:00

Mr_Bunny_anthony: yup, you're dhcp. what about sudo ifconfig ?04:11
anthonyMr_Bunny_, let me get that04:11
mr-richscunizi_: Jaunty == 9.0?04:11
anthonyMr_Bunny_, wait, sudo ifconfig?  that just changes my IP, no?04:12
jensorvenger,  Not that I know of. I can do a paste of the smb.conf to pastebin if that would help.04:12
scunizi_mr-rich: Jaunty = 9.04.. first number is the year the next is the month04:12
Mr_Bunny_anthony: no, it prints out connection information, I think04:12
anthonyMr_Bunny_, aahhh...ok....04:12
scunizi_mr-rich: 6 months between releases and 3 years between LTS releases04:13
vengerjensor, why dont you temporaily rename the smb.conf and possibly secrets.tdb since we are troubleshooting access from this server to another for the time being04:13
mr-richScunizi: aha ... interesting version scheme ... will 9.04 be an LTS release?04:13
eseven733 years? i heard 204:13
vengerjensor, and stop the smb daemon temporarily04:13
scunizi_mr-rich: no 8.04 was LTS..04:13
anthonyMr_Bunny_, pasted again....  http://paste.ubuntu.com/98034/04:14
scunizi_mr-rich: most releases are timed to come out after the latest gnome release.. doesn't always work out that way but the attempt is there.04:14
jensorVenger, Okay, I'll let you know when tahts done04:15
mr-richscunizi_: will OO 3.x be available for older releases?04:15
vengerjensor, if you git things fixed then we can paste the smb.conf and what not to see if some setting is affecting expected functionality04:15
mr-richscunizi_: and does the Ubuntu team prefer Gnome over KDE?04:16
TeknoAmd or Intel04:16

ubottuTekno: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.04:16
scunizi_mr-rich: occationally they will backport some of the newer packages of the most used programs but you can never bet on it.  They are gnome oriented but there is a kde branch04:16

scunizi_mr-rich: it is.. it's called kubuntu.  but there is a transition from kde 3.5.x to 4.x.x which is pretty huge.. typically kubuntu and ubuntu have their LTS release at the same time. Because of the kde transititon this last time they didn't.04:20

eseven73Tekno>> yeah most light weight window managers like openbox , fluxbox, icewm, etc use .keys .menu and a few other files like that , theres a few GUI apps that can do that too, but you have to install them.04:28

Fahadmdg u left me :)04:30
mdgFahad, how come you want to use 32 bit on a 64 bit system?04:30
exodus_msChris_Chase: I wasn't the one asking about MAC filtering, but you may need to "add" your ubuntu computer's MAC address so that your ISP will allow a connection for that computer04:30
anthonyMr_Bunny_, let me try that04:30
Fahadby wrong04:30
mylistoscunizi: also...I only get one writing speed04:31
mylistowhich is auto04:31
Chris_Chaseexodus_ms:how do i do that04:31
mdgFahad:  by wrong?04:31
exodus_msChris_Chase: are you using ADSL04:31
werLd-Chris_Chase: plug the cable modem into the working computer, then from cmd line, type: ipconfig /all 2. write down the MAC address 3.) log into your router and manually put the MAC address to be the one you just wrote down 4.) plug the cable modem into the router, it should be able to pull IP from DHCP04:31
Chris_Chaseexodus_ms: im not sure if im using ADSL04:32
Fahadright now I wanna unistall 32 bit and install 42 package . how ?04:32
exodus_mswerLd-: he say he doesnt have a router...04:32

exodus_msChris_Chase: type into your browser04:32
mauruliI can use system encryption with Ubuntu with dual-boot?04:33
scunizi_Chris_Chase: does the modem plug into a telephone jack or does a round tv type cable screw into the back.04:33
mdgFahad, you mean you want to install 64 bit Ubuntu version?04:33
werLd-exodus_ms: then he cannot spoof easily, so he will need to call isp and have new MAC address added so second computer can pull IP04:33

ArenlorHi all, I'm wondering why ps ux | grep `word` shows the grep `word` process: http://arenlor.pastebin.com/d1102d90004:50
exodus_msChris_Chase: be sure to reply to werLd :)04:50
werLdchris_chase: so you have DSL modem plugged directly into a computer, or a hub? or a router? what is your setup04:50
scunizi_werLd: most dsl modems have to "dial" into the isp.  Typically, on a  windows machine, there is something that is installed that does that dial in connection for you when you access a browser. If you have a router, then most routers have the ability to do the dialing in right from the firmware of the router.04:50
Chris_Chaseexodus_ms: would you know how to get the driver onto the computer without a connection to have it work via USB?04:51
mstrzionok, I did that and ran the update, came up with the same error telling me to manually run it04:51
Chris_ChasewerLd: yes i hav eanother connected to it04:51
webbianybody know how can i enable qt ssl support?04:51
stovicekArenlor, because when you ran grep, it became a process that is listed with ps, so it grep'd itself04:51
o-dogheh, looks hectic in here04:51
DiiPhantomcommand to copy one thing from one place to another?04:51

werLdcp -R04:52
exodus_msChris_Chase: if you are using a wired connection I don't think a driver would be necessary04:52
Chris_ChasewerLd: modems connected thourhg a phone line, and the computers connect directly to the modem04:52
sloopyArenlor, because 'test' is on that line and its what your grepping for04:52

darkblue_Bits one of those 'hiddin in something else' libs04:56
Arenlorsloopy: what do you mean?04:57
exodus_msChris_Chase: troubleshooting network issues can be confusing (for lack of a better term) in a chat environment. If you are unable to find a resolution here I would suggest searching ubuntu forums and then posting your own 'detailed' thread. Sometimes that works a lot better if you have the time to wait :)04:57
jensorvenger, what do you mean jj-nu resolve correctly? I don't know what you mean by "redo the share"04:58

After that go to System > Preferences > CompizConfig05:48

bullgard4My computer displays the manual pages in a special format: The last but one line is light blue and some kind of status line. The last line presently shows: "Press `Q' to quit, `H' for help and SPACE to scroll." How can I return to the conventional man output display mode?07:04
Omar871lstarnes: Even if I try "sudo apt-get update", it won't find anything at all, is this normal too?07:04
outbackwifiRoyall: so is there a file called configure inside that?07:04

outbackwifigaintsura: doesnt the command come with a password switch like -p07:07
gaintsuraoutbackwifi: you'd think07:07
outbackwifigaintsura: best way IMHO is to use sudo -i to drop into a root shell and do whatever with the password07:07
gaintsurano, actually there isn't07:07
DoonzI've just set my ubuntu box up to act as my router. Im using firestarter. Ive got one PC successfully working through the box. Now my problem is my internet on the PC is EXTREMELY slow. What can i do to get performance upto snuff. BTW my line speed is 25mbit down and 1mbit up07:08
RoyallOk, what do I look for under dmesg to find my chipset?07:08
outbackwifiDoonz: are you using something like wondershaper to shape the traffic07:08
Sorcererbobok. Current question is sound related for me. I have glitchy sound. When I play music through rhythmbox it starts nice and gets jittery in a few seconds - and gets progressively worse. Different applications react differently, but they all eventually go jittery. System sounds are jittery too. CPU idling around 8% usage.07:09
Doonzoutbackwifi: no07:09
outbackwifiRoyall: you dont. type lspci for that07:09

fac3lessSorcererbob: Well, open a terminal and: sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio07:09
fac3lessThen sudo apt-get install esound07:09
fac3lessand you should be good to go, might require a quick reboot //not sure on the latter. :p07:10

gregorusing XChat-GNOME; Can I not add another server that is not on the list already?07:10
Sorcererbobwell the thing is that it was working earlier... then I started mucking around with ndiswrapper (this is a fresh install) and made a bunch of other changes which I can't remember. rebooted... and it doesn't work07:10
fac3lessI doubt that's related Sorcererbob.07:10
Sorcererbobfair enough. I'll remove pulseaudio. One moment07:11
fac3lessTry it, I've had the pulseaudio issue on 3 of 3 ubuntu systems.07:11
outbackwifiDoonz: if youve enabled direct dns queries to go through the iptables that would work; otherwise just use the ubuntu box as a forwarder07:11

outbackwifiDoonz: well, that shows that the ubuntu box is not forwarding dns requests07:18
Doonzok so say i do that will that speed up my inet browsing?07:18
outbackwifiDoonz: easiest way is to install dnsmasq07:18

Duke_No, sorry, I was trying to run TiLP, which lets me connect my calculator to my computer08:19
Duke_Through USB08:19
darkrubicantoh is it a graphing calculator?08:19
evilsinedarkrubicant will the soundcard be named multimedia controller?08:19
darkrubicanti'm not sure evilsine, maybe.08:19
evilsinewell its a intel08:20
darkrubicantcould also be under sound.08:20
darkrubicantbut yes multimedia sounds right.08:20
darkrubicantwhat name does it have for it?08:20
outbackwifievilsine: lspci should also tell you that in more clarity08:20
Duke_so is there any way I can get the UID to be 0 instead of 1000?08:20
darkrubicantTiLP is the program that lets you connect your calculator to your computer?08:21
Duke_Yeah, TiLP2 to be precise08:21

Duke_My USB mouse is working fine, how do I fix the unknown devices thing?08:22
darkrubicantDuke_, what skokooo said, do you have usb enabled, rather do you have any other usb devices connected that are working?08:22
Doonzoutbackwifi: I fixed the problem08:22
outbackwifiDoonz: ok how?08:22
Duke_darkrubricant yeah my mouse08:22
darkrubicantYou have to install the appropriate driver for the device.  I believe that TiLP is not the appropriate driver.08:22
Doonzoutbackwifi:  i went back and re-read the firestarter howto. SOmehow i missed a reboot right after the install08:22

Duke_I can't do that either08:23
darkrubicantDuke_, can you tell me the name and model of your graphics calculator and i'll try and find you a device driver for it, since no one appears to be able to help with glxgears/glxinfo problems.08:23
Duke_TI-84+, thanks08:23
Duke_Texas Instruments08:23
mayankpentium4, 2.4 or dual core 2.0, which one is better?08:23

Duke_I'll find the site...08:26
evilsinedarkrubicator can you private chat with me08:26
raven_Come Dual Core is by far better even better than a 3.6ghz P408:27
darkrubicantmayank if the p42.4 is just a 2.4 chip, it depends on what the dual core is, if it's a 2.0Ghz dual core, then the 2.0ghz dual core is better.08:27
salermayank, ig u can buy 2.4 dual core ahead if not 2.008:27
darkrubicanthaha duke_ ok, one sec.08:27
salermayank, if u can buy 2.4 dual core go ahead if not 2.008:27
