Ward1983does some good soul feel like helping me out by trying to compile gephex and see whats wrong? i searched for a solution for about a day and i'm simply out of options for linux :(  -  www.gephex.org00:02
IceBall|unjustice|, ok00:02
jp_sfdatta: anyway: when you open volume control click Edit click preference then check the line-in and micophones, you should then have a new tab in the open volume window where you can define the input source00:02
pdtpatri3kfaileas you are right ..we use ibm at work here and dells and i tell you .. IBM makes it very easy whereas dell - well thats another story00:02
Ademanfaileas: I won't make any assumptions, but do you know if the recovery partition is capable of operating on its own? (i suspect it is, seems logical for a recovery partition...)00:03
dattathaks jp_sf i will try that right now00:03
faileasAdeman: sort of. it needs a specific bootloader, which you can restore from a cd. I STRONGLY recommend making those backup disks though.00:03
Ademangrub couldn't handle it?00:04

bastid_raZorphixxor; scp00:46
jp_sfthe_squircle: ah they are wonderfull those people at OO00:46
jribjustrelaxzin: you need to apply proper permissions to the mounted partition (ie you use chmod/chown appropriately on the mount point with the partition mounted).  See ubottu00:46
the_squirclephixxor: ftp/scp/NFS/afp/smb/tftp... anything network based00:46

Laderiusphixxor crossover cable00:49
Laderiusphixxor i think anyways :)00:49
bastid_raZorphixxor; scp will use ethernet .. scp file file username@ip:location00:49
the_squirclephixxor: you don't need a crossover cable if one of the cards is auto-sensing00:49
the_squirclephixxor: just a regular cable00:49

bastid_raZorLaderius; i actually use a script to do the same thing too.. it can also be used to unmount the iso afterwards.00:56
the_squircleGuest88728: you could force install the package using dpkg -i --force-all package.deb00:56
Laderiusbastid_raZor: Which script?00:57
the_squirclethanks usr13 and Laderius00:57
Laderiusbastid_raZor: Maybe the same one im using00:57
usr13Laderius: the_squircle where /mnt/cdrom is a valid mount point, you pick.  i.e.  mkdir /mnt/iso and then use /mnt/iso00:57
bastid_raZorLaderius; a friend of mine wrote it.00:57

bastid_raZorthe_squircle; Laderius if you notice this script uses /media/iso so that it will appear on the desktop when thinks are mounted. it makes it much easier to find if you prefer using the mouse over a keyboard.01:04

kuyaba-tokjrib: which one do you recommend?01:17
SherlawkDragonI have windows programs on my computer that I want to run (the Windows was Vista, and I downloaded that update that was corrupting Vista systems)01:17
PrivateRolfAlright, I will Private Message you in a minute, Laderius.01:17
GokulI'm having this issue where the netwrok manager on my Ubuntu 8.10 shows only the wireless network i'm connected to and does not display all the other available wireless connections01:18
jribkuyaba-tok: why do you want to have both on the same partition?01:18
Laderiusbastid_raZor: HA! amazing01:18
SherlawkDragonmostly I just need something that will run windows apps (that works better than Wine, which doesn't really work)01:18
kuyaba-tokjrib: i do not want to repartition my disk01:18
bastid_raZorLaderius; to mount you need sudo to unmount simply type isomount and it unmounts.01:18
Laderiusbastid_raZor: nice thanks alot01:18
Gokulanyone have any suggestions as to how I could fix it?01:18
overridexSherlawkDragon: virtualbox will work for you, though you do need a windows cd to install into it01:18
tiyowanPrivateRolf: I've got a month old install; what kind of script is it?01:18
SherlawkDragoncrap01:18
gogereaversherlawkdragon well thers not mutch etter then wine other then using something like vmware or dule booting01:18
bastid_raZorLaderius; glad i could help. it shows the mounted iso on your desktop too.. that should help in locating it if you like gui apps beter.01:19
kuyaba-tokjrib: ill try wubi then, thx..01:19
SherlawkDragonsee, I HAVE Windows Vista, it came on here, but the OS corrupted itself01:19
jribkuyaba-tok: personally, I don't trust wubi.  I would install ubuntu and virtualize windows.  That should work fine as long as you don't need to play games on windows01:19
gogereaverSherlawkDragon sounds right01:19

Barridushow can i get an error code or message?01:20
Laderiusbastid_raZor: yeah its awesome thx01:20
PrivateRolfTiyowan: It's a sort of idea I have going. What this script will do will resolve dependencies for Transmission 1.42 source, build it with the options I've specified, then remove the source package and its extracted directory, and the development dependencies.01:20

SherlawkDragonnevermind, I thought I had the source, but don't01:21
rndmtngnt_Im sure .net can be installed and run under wine but think you problems maybe be best asked in the wine or lookup the mono channels01:21

eriscodr_willis, I have to do setup on the client as well?02:00
AnneShirleyjosher4: Looks like we're getting in trouble...02:00
nbeebogogereaver, but it doesnt work, tried with sound...02:00
gogereavernbeebo its a old trick with soundcards02:00
josher4jrib: So sorry. Wont happen again02:00
gogereavernbeebo humm maybe it just doesent support it02:01
dr_williserisco,   not messed with that in ages.. i dont recall much setup needed on the client end..  Perhaps set the gateway/dns to be the ics server..02:01
gogereavernbeebo i have a capture option in alisa02:01
nbeebogogereaver, NooooooOoOoo.... maybe do it in another way, within the system not the soundcard02:01
eriscodr_willis, I have zero ability to setup anything on the client. its DHCP or nothing02:01
nbeebogogereaver, alsa* just so u wont type that again..02:01
lomezhi, i just installed ubuntu on a new laptop, i have it installed on my desktop as well02:02
dr_williserisco,  no idea then.  of course you could set up a dhcp server :)02:02

eriscodr_willis, is this easier with firestarter?02:02
eseven73!enter | lomez02:02
ubottulomez: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!02:02
eriscodr_willis, I tried firestarter in the past but it completely screwed up iptables and I couldn't connect to anything anymore02:02
dr_williserisco,  no idea.  firestarter does the exact same 'commands' it just has a gui to them..02:02
lomezsorry eseven7302:03
eriscodr_willis, and I couldn't find anyway to set iptables back to the default02:03
gogereavernbeebo im a acer one fan lol not  eepc02:03
dr_williserisco,  'sudo iptables --flush' i recall. :)02:03
nbeebogogereaver, uhm ok lol02:03
dr_willis!iptables02:03
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).02:03
eriscodr_willis, will this remove important things I need though?02:04
lomezit says bad fs, cannot mount02:04
jacobcreamwhy isnt Amarok working??02:04
lomezor badsuperblock02:04
gogereavernbeebo you could always run a cable from the sound card to line in its cheap and easy02:04
dr_williserisco,  it fluses out/removes all existing iptables rules that you have setup..   check iptables docs/guides to see how it works..02:04
jacobcreamevery time i try to play some music : it says "Audio output unavialble the device is busy"02:04
lomezeven when i type sudo mount /dev/sdc1, it doesnt work02:04
sztomiis there a deb package for QGtkStyle?02:05
gogereavernbeebo all you need is a pice of 4m audio cable and a ipod head phone spliter02:05
dr_willislomez,  you may want to give a full proper mount command with all needed options.02:05
gogereavernbeebo so you dont need to kep removing it02:05
eriscodr_willis, firestarter is freezing on me02:06
eriscodr_willis, whenever I try to select a list of devices it freezes for a few seconds02:06
lomez dr_willis thanks, i just want the external hd to automatically mount wheni plug it in, it does that on my desktop ubuntu install02:06
dr_williserisco,  i never use firestarter.. so no idea. could be its doing some scanning/work02:06

\kiraK_Dallas: yes, there is extra steps to take to avoid not being able to boot into windows, or not being able to boot into ubuntu, or deleting windows by accedint. I personnally, have never done dual boot and wouldnt know, but i do know there is alot of well written tutorials online (google)03:28
ActionParsnipmr_sukor: you can mount isos in a stock system03:28
snowveilk, dev/sdc03:29
snowveilhow would I format it?03:29
mr_sukordo u mean extract it?03:29
Jack_Sparrow!iso03:29
ubottuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.03:29
spencerActionParsnip, well, yeah, but there's enuf demand, and gaim-vv does have a startup framework.. it's a good start on getting it done.03:29
RedcardWow.  I'm amazed that worked.03:29
Jack_Sparrowsnowveil, gparted03:29
K_Dallas\kira> well, I only meant extra steps due to vista being vista otherwise have done dual boot with xp, linux, ...03:29
ActionParsnipmr_sukor: you can mount it just like you mount cd drives03:30
minus18_pundithow can install the packages i have downloaded through Add/Remove. i coudn't install the packages last time due to a power outage. i've downloaded almost 140 packges.03:30
spencerActionParsnip, and don't get me started with their decision on moving to monotone as the version control.. it just make it that much less friendly to start hacking the project...03:30
\kiraK_Dallas: oh, I see. I wouldnt think there would be any extra steps, but im not the person to ask, I tried vista on a friends computer and will never go near it again.03:30
Dracie_hi, how do i get mozilla's firefox "All Downloads Are finished" dialog from covering up my gnome panel03:30
ActionParsnipspencer: i just use stuff, i dont care for any politics03:30
Jack_Sparrowminus18_pundit, are they all from our repos..03:30
Jack_Sparrow!clone03:30
ubottuTo replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude --disable-columns --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate03:30
mr_sukorsome of windows game cant play well in ubuntu?03:30
ActionParsnipmr_sukor: the system will see the iso or the physical cd as the same03:30
savvasminus18_pundit: you go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal and execute: sudo apt-get -f install03:30
mr_sukorany ideas?03:30
ActionParsnip!appdb | mr_sukor03:30
ubottumr_sukor: The Wine Application DB is a database of applications and help for !Windows programs that run under !WINE: http://appdb.winehq.org - Join #winehq for application help03:30
K_Dallas\kira> ok, thanks. I continue googling ;)03:31
Jack_Sparrow!appdb > mr_sukor03:31
spencermr_sukor, goto winehq and take a look.03:31
ubottumr_sukor, please see my private message03:31
RedcardFound what I did :P  Sillyness.03:31
jessid!lan | jessid03:31
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about lan03:31
ActionParsnipmr_sukor: theres also cedega which is paidfor software as well as crossover office (also nonfree)03:31
spencermr_sukor, search for the app, they will tell you if it's playable.. i play WoW everynight with my Ubuntu 8.10...03:31
\kiraK_Dallas: well, someone else on here might know, the only reason I pointed you to google in the first place is because I thought you were asking alot of a more basic question03:31
jessid!intranet > jessid03:32
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about intranet03:32
RedcardSo how many partitions should I create since I get to do this manually?03:32
spencermr_sukor, sometimes you may have to copy some files from your XP c:\windows\system32 to your .wine folder tho.. just check winehq from more info on what you wanna do03:32
Jack_SparrowRedcard, at least 303:32
K_Dallas\kira> that is all right. I am really googling and there is no shame in it :):) Thanks again03:32
Jack_SparrowRedcard, / = root  /home  and a swap at minimum03:33
ActionParsnipRedcard: you'll need a / and /swap at least, i'd suggest a sepearate one for /home too03:33
\kiraK_Dallas: no problem, good luck :)03:33
RedcardJack_Sparrow: Okay.. none of these will be at beginning of the disk.03:33
snowveilif I want this drive to be readable to both windows machines and linux, will ext2 work fine, or should I stick with fat32?03:33
minus18_punditsavvas: it installed something bbut those were not what i have downloaded last night03:33
ross_hi03:33
dawany idea why Banshee would be failing to play everything in my music directory? It's all .mp3's without any form of DRM03:33
Jack_SparrowRedcard, You will probably need to create an extended partition to hold logicals if you go over 4 partitions03:33
ActionParsnipdaw: have you instaled mp3 codecs?03:33
dawoh ... well .. that would be a good reason ..... what package would I look in for those?03:34
\kirasnowveil: you cant read ex2 file systems in windows without additional software, and I would recommend fat32 if it needs to be used constantly by both operating systems. I guess it depends on how much each OS will be using it03:34
ActionParsnip!codecs | daw03:34
savvasminus18_pundit: if the packages were downloaded or not completed, the add/remove downloader will continue from where it left. So you go back to Applications > Add/Remove and check again what you wanted :)03:34
RedcardHmm.03:34

leonuttest03:34
\kirasnowveil: also (in case I miss-understood your question, you cant install linux on fat or ntfs03:34
snowveilthanks \kira , it's mostly for occasional transfers from my system to a friend's03:34
kc8pxyJack_Sparrow:  not even w/ wubi?03:34

QuagmireHello Jack_Sparrow ...I have a no new laptop that is all but 100% compatible with Ubuntu, but on to my question. I'm just not happy unless I'm trying to do something with a little challenge involved. I have executable text file that I brought over from my windows pc and I want to open it.03:35
Jack_Sparrowkc8pxy, Wubi does not install to an ntfs it creates a lvm03:35
kitchekc8pxy: since wubi installs inside of a image which has the ext* filesystem inside of it03:35
yoyit2is there any way to get a TrendNet TEW-444UB to work with ubuntu?03:35
Jack_SparrowQuagmire, setup vbox03:35
ActionParsnipyoyit2: what is it?03:36
mr_sukorjack : why my ubuntu font rendering keep changing?03:36
QuagmireJack_Sparrow,  Hmmm just look for the software and install?03:36
yoyit2ActionParsnip: its a usb wifi stick03:36
\kirain the terminal, the command 'ls', what does the color of a directory with a blue backgroun and white text mean?03:36
Jack_Sparrow!vbox03:36
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/VirtualBox03:36
kc8pxykitche: Quagmire  just run it via wine :)03:36
Jack_SparrowQuagmire, Use synaptic and look up virtualbox03:36
ActionParsnipyoyit2: ok then run lsusb, it will give you an identifier you can websearch for03:36
Quagmirethanks!03:37
Jack_SparrowQuagmire, Depending on what type of exe.. even dosbox might work03:37
yoyit2ActionParsnip: in terminal??03:37
kc8pxyQuagmire:  do you want to run windows inside your linux, (virtualbox) or run it "natively" (wine) ??03:37
ActionParsnipyoyit2: always in terminal03:37
spencerActionParsnip, i'm always having issue with gstreamer on the color being negative.. do you have any lights to shed???03:38
yoyit2ActionParsnip: so just type in "lsusb" or "sudo lsusb"??03:38
rwwJack_Sparrow: Wubi doesn't create an lvm. It creates a loopback file system inside a file in the ntfs partition. I think you got your L-jargon mixed up ;)03:38
ActionParsnipyoyit2: lsusb03:38
ActionParsnipyoyit2: you dont need sudo for every terminal command03:38
Jack_Sparrowrww, thanks'03:38
yoyit2ActionParsnip: ok so it says "now firmware"?03:38
Jack_Sparrowrww, I wont use or recommend it since it was part of a crash that wiped out my ntfs and windows03:38
yoyit2ActionParsnip: **no03:39
yoyit2ActionParsnip: any other ideas?03:39
ActionParsnipyoyit2: can you give a pastebin of lsusb03:39
ActionParsnip!paste | yoyit203:39
ubottuyoyit2: pastebin is a service to post multiple-lined texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic)03:39
minus18_punditi want to back all my downloaded package through aptoncd. but aptoncd only shows 350 mb sized packages. i have downloaded 10 times more then that. how can have all my packages llisted in aptoncd?03:39
kc8pxyrrw: it makes a file to be a loopback ext3 fs, and simply loads the fs loopback from within the ntfs it can ntfs-3g??? :)03:39
QuagmireJack_Sparrow, there are a bunch of them to choose from (virtualbox) which one is likely the better one for me? 8.10 32 bit version installed03:39
yoyit2ActionParsnip: can you send me a link03:39
ActionParsnipyoyit2: ubottu just gave you it03:39

GalaxorHi.  I've got a thinkpad R61.  One day, my computer lost the ability to suspend when I close the lid.  Instead, it ... freezes?  How do I go about restoring this or at least debugging it?  I shut the computer, and the "sleep light" never starts blinking, and the fan never turns off.  When I open it back up, I've got a blank screen and the only thing I can do is forcibly shut off the computer.03:40
rwwkc8pxy: I don't recommend it either, I just know quite a lot from when I used to use it.03:40

ActionParsnipyoyit2: thanks03:42
rwwwoli: what CPU/processor does it have?03:42
* kc8pxy puts another undeline under "DO NOT DO THIS" next to wubi on his personal checklist.03:43
Jack_Sparrow:)03:43
dewaardMy performance is really off and I think that is due to graphics issues. While memory use is low (I have several GB of free RAM) and the CPU isn't very busy either the interface is slow and often hangs for a few seconds before an action is performed (like opening a new tab in firefox). Also, video playback is rusty. I have an nvidia 8800 GT with the nvidia-glx-177 driver (I've tried downgrading to 173 but didn't help). I've tried several03:43
dewaardthings so far,  including browsing the logs, but no luck yet. Does anyone have any pointers as to where I could look for a solution?03:43
wolirww, is Core 2 Duo enough?03:43
ActionParsnipyoyit2: looks like it uses ndiswrapper03:43
spencersavvas, anything that uses gstreamer as the video lib will have the same issue.. but if i switch to totem-xine and it works perfect..03:43
rwwwoli: Yeah. All Intel Core 2 processors can run either 32-bit or 64-bit; your choice.03:43
ActionParsnipyoyit2: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-684611.html03:43

wolirww, which do you recommend me?03:43
xavieranHow can I stop ubuntu from doing a disk check at bootup?03:43
mr_sukorjack sparrow : why my font rendering keep changing itself?03:43
Jack_Sparrowxavieran, Not a good idea03:43
savvasminus18_pundit: Whatever aptoncd shows, that's what you've downloaded (unless you've used the apt-get autoclean or apt-get clean command, which would remove all downloaded cached packages). Unfortunately with the power outage it means some data was lost.03:44
xavieranJack_Sparrow:  I disk check when I want to... not when my computer wants to...03:44
savvasspencer: no idea, sorry :\03:44
rwwwoli: 1) How much memory/RAM does the computer have? 2) Do you use it for specialized stuff like scientific computation, high-end video editing, etc?03:44
QuagmireJack_Sparrow, you sure can test it out ...its a tiny file03:44
Jack_Sparrowxavieran, It is ill advised to turn it off03:44
dewaardI think it might not be the driver but the window manager that isn't working properly, but I'm not sure how to prove or disprove that.03:44
wolirww, it has 4gb ram, and the toughest things I use are 3D games.03:45

ActionParsnipCaptainMorgan: only in certain cases, not always faster03:46
CaptainMorganespcially woli if you're using 3d03:46
rwwwoli: You probably won't notice much difference. The only thing is that most 32-bit Operating Systems (including Ubuntu by default) can't address more than 3.something GB of memory.03:46

mlopezqcjoseph: of course04:28
brianhermankc8pxy are u a ham radio opperator04:28
rwwalbech: just create the file. The only reason why there are multiple files in /etc/modprobe.d is to make things easier for the package manager04:28

pdtpatri3ktechsupport userdel04:29
rwwJoeseph: not really. A compromised computer could just copy the private key off the USB flash drive and keylog your password04:29
Joesephrww: Would they have to be in possesion of my flash drive, or the computer I used it on?04:30
techsupportpdtpatri3k, how do i add user and give him root priviliages ?04:30

pdtpatri3kdid you get that techsupport?04:30
rwwJoeseph: just the computer you used it in. In general, you shouldn't use your private key on any computer you don't trust04:31

Cpudan80pyrak: what are you trying to do?04:33
PytlaskHeya, quick question. While reading about crontab, I found several different explanations for the priority of allowance. In the default ubuntu distribution Intrepid Ibex, what happens if neither cron.allow nor cron.deny are in the /etc folder?04:33

Joesephrww, mlopezqc: so If I use a computer that I trust not to be searched through by a cracker, a private key on my flash drive would only be a problem if I lost my flash dirve? But in that case, couldn't I just reset my private key?04:33
unavailablepyrak: open terminal then type echo $path04:34
[TiZ]I need to make it so that the sansa mounts with write access. Can anyone help?04:34
Cpudan80pyrak: so you need to edit .bashrc in your home directory04:34
pyrakCpudan80, well, i'm not sure if this value only is used by the install script, or if its used by the program itself later04:34
pdtpatri3ktechsupport if not then user useradd to add the users and then to give the user root permissions then you would add them to the /etc/sudoers file04:34
dawI'm going to guess I know the answer to this, but: is there a silverlight v2 plug-in for mozilla on linux? I would guess "No," but want confirmation04:34

vandenHi. I cannot get my printer working with 8.10. I had been running 7.10 and had it working. A bare-metal install of 8.10 and ubuntu cannot find my HP laserjet 5MP. A google cast no light. Little help?04:34
nirivendaw: no, but look into moonlight, the linux version, i thinkt it uspports 1.0 of silverlight04:34
buckydentnot that i know of.  rumors its in developent04:34
pyrakunavailable, yeah, i got some paths, separated by colons04:35

dawthanks niriven04:35
savvasvanden: go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal and execute: sudo hp-setup04:35
unavailablepyrak: i didnt.....04:35
Cpudan80pyrak: nah it looks like you only need it for the install04:35
pyrakit's very possible that i don't need to actually do anything for step 1, i guess04:35
pyrak/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games04:35
Cpudan80pyrak: so you would just do ...04:35
vandenmauricio_: no, just the community docs and googling ubuntu + printer model. Will try04:35
pyrakunavailable, ^^that was my output04:35
savvasvanden: it will ask for your password, you type it in and press enter, and follow the intructions04:35
Cpudan80export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/GHC04:36
nirivendaw, acutally it look slike theres a moonlight 2.004:36
techsupportwhen i do useradd someuser , it snot even prompting to specify password for new user04:36

droopsta915why does rhythmbox music player, play my albums from last to first? Can I fix this?04:37

brianhermanwow04:37
pyrakCpudan80, i believe the path i want to add is /usr/lib64/ghc-6.8.2, does that look right to you?04:37
brianhermanthats weird04:37
dawniriven, i'm astounded, but happy :)04:37
savvasvanden: a lot of things changed since 7.10 :)04:37
unavailablekc8pxy: it was over 4 months ago that I had it working... my memory is shot because i also finished a sem at college.04:37
Cpudan80pyrak: ummm /usr/lib/ is already in your path I think04:37
Cpudan80pyrak: if you just install ghc from the repos, it should be in your path04:38
savvasvanden: also, when you're done execute this command (one line): sudo adduser $USER lp; sudo adduser $USER lpadmin04:38
Cpudan80pyrak: Its in the repositories04:38
Cpudan80pyrak: sudo apt-get install ghc04:38
pyrakCpudan80, yes, that's what i did04:38
savvasvanden: then power off your printer, power off your computer and then power them on again. it should work now04:38
nirivendaw, Wait, no, haha, 1.0 only. Sorry about that, heres the link. http://www.go-mono.com/moonlight/04:38
Cpudan80pyrak: then its in your path already04:38
pyrakCpudan80, ok, so it looks like i don't need to do anything for step one?04:38
vandensavvas: No doubt. :-)   hp-setup is failing to detect the printer. It was like that with system-config-printer and the cups web interface, too.04:38

Cpudan80pyrak: go ahead04:42
Cpudan80Guest65382: open a terminal, type dhclient04:42
savvasvanden: two suggestions: 1) Check your bios for serial port settings, it should be bi-directional 2) check your cables, one by one, maybe you missed something, or a pin is broken.. stuff like that happen :)04:43

ramblingturtlehello everyone is there a specific channel for eee ubuntu i am having problem with sd card wanting to mount only with sudo same with ipod 4th gen nano all i want is the devices to mount for all users without sudo privelages05:24
phyrfoxIsn't that a /etc/fstab thingie? Mounting devices automagically?05:24
dr_willisramblingturtle,  you could make specific fstab entries for the devices with the proper options.  if they are vfat/fat/ntfs filesystem. you may need to install/run the ntfs-config tool05:24
dr_willisphyrfox,  hal handles the 'auto mounting' of decvices not listed in fstab. :) so the 2 are 'similer' but different aspects of the same job.05:25
joejcis there a mac desktop environment?05:25

dr_willisjoejc,  theres 'make my gnome look like a mac' sites/tweaks thats about it05:27
dr_willisramblingturtle,  most of the tips to get ntfs going also apply to fat32. They just need to get mounted with the proper options. either via the fstab. or  the proper hal tweaks. (which i think that ntfs-config tool also handles)05:28
epoxyum.  why does an Ubunutu upgrade always "successfully finish".. only to render the systems full of surprises on the next reboot?  Seems to be a reoccurring theme with my girlfriends install as well as MANY clients.'05:28

dr_willisscientes2,  thats the hard way. :)  easier to dpkg-reconfogure it06:06
lanoxx_so ALSA is not configured, it got removed by the sound installed setup file which i downloaded from asus06:06

scientes2but probably does exactally what i said06:07
dr_willisscientes2,  its not breaking stuff without reason.. both kdm and gdm can be started and only the one thats set to be default will actually run, as a sanity check.06:07

eweb100sohail, webcam07:01
eweb100sohail, thing07:01
LurkersAyoyit2, There should be a search button at the top, click it, search the name of the program in the box, when it returns the results, look for that program, right click on it, select 'install' and click the green tick at the top07:01
macvrhi all, i'd like to install ubuntu in another partition , in the same harddrive , could this be done? i.e 2 roots in the same drive but different partitions? each time i could use a different 1 ?07:01
histoyoyit2, or you can opne a terminal and "sudo aptitude install ogmrip"  with out quotes ofcourse07:01
LurkersAterryx, most of the time :D07:02
yoyit2histo: it just says it confilcts with another program07:02
histoyoyit2, ahh well using synaptic or other means won't install it either. YOu have to resolve the conflict07:02
terryxlurkera, so as my printer..all are fine...but today i got an printer error, now i can;t print anything...07:02
LurkersAterryx, so you have used them before in ubuntu?07:03
yoyit2histo: how would i do that exactly?07:03
pipegeekIf vasyok shows up again, perhaps someone would be so kind as to direct him to #ubuntu-ru or #linux-russian07:03
terryxlurkera, yes...and print many file..the error comes today..07:03
LogomachistI installed Ubuntu but Grub isn't kicking in like it is supposed to.07:03
pipegeekdidn't get the chance before he logged off07:04
LurkersAterryx, Have you changed anything on the computer lately07:04
LurkersA?07:04
syahrilexecuse me ! how to set enable usb using virtualbox ose?07:04
LogomachistHelp? I'm trying to duel-boot WinXP and Linux.07:04
terryxno07:04
LurkersAsyahril, VirtualBox only addresses 2 USB devices07:04
terryxonly updates07:04
LurkersAterryx, Can you post the error?07:04
LurkersALogomachist, Does GRUB show up at all?07:05
macvrhi all, i'd like to install ubuntu in another partition , in the same harddrive , could this be done? i.e 2 roots in the same drive but different partitions? each time i could use a different 1 ?07:05
LurkersAsyahril, That is generally your mouse and keyboard07:05
unopmacvr, sure07:05
syahrilSo, How to share my folder from real machine in virtual machine07:05
terryxlurkera, well no big error, i tried to print empty page, and its says...print error...there was a problem processing document..<document name>07:06
thorsten11Logomachist: is ubuntu the only os on the drive?07:06
LurkersAI don't know if VirtualBox can do that07:06
iffan4evermacvr: you can07:06
LurkersAsyahril, I don't know if VirtualBox can do that07:06
macvrunop: how would the setup respond then? would i have an option in grub?07:06
LogomachistNo, I also have WinXP07:06
syahrilthank LurkersA07:06
LurkersAterryx, Does it do the same for a document with something on it?07:06
unopmacvr, grub should detect the already installed OSes and add entries automatically07:06
terryxlurkera, yes07:07
LurkersAsyahril, No problem, you can always try VMWare Player :D07:07
syahrilVMWare is free or Commercial?07:07
LurkersAterryx, Odd.... Have you tried restarting the printer?07:07
unopmacvr, but why would you want to install ubuntu twice?07:07
macvrunop: ok... the thing is i'm having problems with 8.10 , so i want to install 8.10 in another partition and check if that works? would i have any conflicts?07:07
LogomachistGrub wasn't showing up, but I found a seperate Windows installer for Grub and now it does show up, but don't start Linux, only generates errors.07:07
* BruceChang bows07:08
Ahadielsyahril, It's possible to share a folder with Virtualbox07:08
LogomachistIn other words, there's a Grub entry on the WinXP boot menu.07:08
thorsten11Logomachist: i tried a dual boot with vista/ubuntu.  could never get networking capabilites but grub sure took control.  Hmm thats quite a pickle07:08
LurkersAsyahril, Player and server are free and are good products, Workstation is ~$500 but is well worth the cost in my opinion07:08
Ahadielsyahril, In your VM's window, go to Devices => Shared Folders07:08
unopmacvr, the only conflicts would happen if both installs shared the same partitions/filesystems - just make sure that isn't the case07:08
brain187what are you problem with810?07:08
thorsten11Logomachist: grub should be what shows up and you pick from it07:08
unopmacvr, it's just like dual-booting two different operating systems07:09
BruceChangbrain187: hello. Do you know how to use generic IDE driver to install Ubuntu?07:09
LogomachistYeah I looked online and that's what the tutorials say should happen.07:09
terryxlurkera, now see, i have delete the printer..and turn off then on it, then when i on it its showing printer added07:09
LurkersALogomachist, Try booting with a live cd and running the command "install-grub"07:09
macvrunop:  ok ... could u check this out if u have any ideas? how to resolve this?  http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=6448335&postcount=1 <<< if this is solved i wouldnt have to reinstall!07:09
terryxlurkera, now i try to print...07:09
thorsten11Logomachist: i hate to suggest this, but you may want to delete the partition and start from scratch again. might have been an error in the installation07:09
LogomachistSo I start a terminal and select type "install-grub"? Do I have to be in a certain directory?07:10
LurkersAterryx, It fix it?07:10
phixxorhey if I have two computers on a network, and one has already downloaded updates, would I have to download them twice? (cause computer #2 would have to download 209 updates otherwise)07:10
BruceChangHello. May I know how to use generic IDE driver to install Ubuntu 8.10?07:11
terryxlurkera, no....before i have done that...but don't know what happens this time?07:11
LurkersALogomachist, That should be the command, It worked for me last time, other option is 'Super Grub Disk' which can fix it for you.07:11
brain187bruse see pm07:11
LogomachistThorsten11- I already did that. This was my second time installing Ubuntu, no different from the first.07:11
LogomachistWhat's Super Grub Disk?07:11
LurkersAit is a grub rescue cd07:11
thorsten11Logomachist: did you create the partition from xp?07:11
brain187bruce you there07:12
LurkersALogomachist, http://www.supergrubdisk.org/07:12
LurkersAit is a small live cd07:12
LogomachistI did, it's using a ext3 filesystem.07:12
LurkersAterryx, What sort of printer is it?07:13

LurkersAterryx, System -> Administration -> Printing07:15

LurkersAterryx, yeah07:15
SmokeyDI can of course create an empty disk image and install ubuntu on it, but It would save time if the images already existed07:15

HenryHCan someone give me a hand please? I have just installed U 8.10 and it seems to run fine but now I have put a SCSI card in the box and connected it to my scanner and trying to find the scanner using 'XSane Image Scanner' it says "Failed to open device 'v4l:/dev/video0': Invalid Argument. How do I determine what /dev/video0 is?  And how do I get a list of the hardware that U thinks is in the box to compare that with what I think is in the b09:04
ActionParsnipthe fact it works in one system is good09:04
simardI would like to run a "local dns system" on my lan so that instead of refering to my computers as 192.168.1.x on the command line I could provide with some domain name, how can I do that ?09:04
ActionParsnipHenryH: run lspci to get the cards info then websearch from there, you may need packages or to compile drivers for the card09:05
ActionParsnipsimard: if you use their name, youor router will resolve names09:05
fuzeboxsoftwareanyone an expert with wine?09:06
rwwfuzeboxsoftware: the people in #winehq, probably09:06
ActionParsnipfuzeboxsoftware: or try in here, we may be able to help09:06

ahmedhello room09:07
fuzeboxsoftwarewell, i have install phpdesigner 2008 in wine, but when i try to edit stuff,text/code, it acts weird09:07

mkercan someone see if /lastlog works in xchat? I thought the problem was that I didn't log, but now I do and I even resterted the client. Still doesn't work.09:09
p4rsehi, how to remove a package and all of its dependencies (that are not used by other packages)? i installed the package with apt-get install09:09
rwwfuzeboxsoftware: See http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=10504 , maybe? Looks like some other people got it to work.09:09
HenryHActionP I ran lspci and it said "01:0a.0 SCSI storage controller: Initio Corporation INI-950 SCSI Adapter (rev 02)" amongst a lot of other stuff. does that mean I have the card working or not?09:09
ActionParsnipp4rse: sudo apt-get --purge remove <package to be removed>; sudo apt-get --purge autoremove09:09
rwwmker: works for me. I get a new channel window named (lastlog) with the search results. For example, I did "/lastlog lastlog" and it gave me your message.09:09
p4rseActionParsnip: thanks!09:10
mkerrww, ok good to know that it's *supposed* to work anyway. I'm just getting a blank window.09:10
rwwp4rse: double-check when you run those commands that they don't try to remove more than you want. Depending on your apt-get setup they can be problematic.09:10

rwwmker: if it helps you at all, I'm using Intrepid's version of XChat, 2.6.8, and have logging turned off (so I don't keep scrollback between sessions).09:12
mkerrww, oh, I solved it, apparently xchat doesn't do number of rows like irssi which could do "/lastlog lastlog 5" to show the last 5 results.09:12
p4rseis it ok to remove libglib2.0?09:12
p4rsewhats libglib?09:12

p4rseok, thanks09:15
rwwp4rse: you can see if anything depends on a package with "aptitude why packagename", by the way09:15
ActionParsnipwhy is the opposite of apt-get install, apt-get remove and not apt-get uninstall09:16
szokedemonhello09:17
rwwActionParsnip: 'cause uninstall is too many letters :p. Besides, there's also apt-get purge, which is also an opposite of install09:17
rwwHi szokedemon!09:17
ActionParsniprww: it just makes sense as the opposite word, plus you can tab complete09:17
szokedemonhi rww:)09:18
rwwActionParsnip: back when apt-get was first written, I don't think anyone had gotten around to bash-completion :P09:18

ActionParsnipsilv3r_m001: try sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart09:59
silv3r_m001yah did it 100 times09:59
Arenlorsilv3r_m001 there are many possibilities, what driver do you use, and what is your chipset?09:59
silv3r_m001its an intel motherboard09:59

rwwFireFox||: asking confusing, irrelevant questions probably isn't the best way to help ;)10:01
Arenlorsilv3r_m001: what wireless card do you have?10:01
rwwsilv3r_m001: wireless network or ethernet? also, copy the output of "lspci" and "lsusb" terminal commands to http://paste.ubuntu.com/ and give us a link to the pastebin page. Those commands will tell us what card you have.10:01
FireFox||rww: Sorry, I just was interested in the problem. I realise that the qustion is irrelevant but it might be interesting if that was the chipset10:02
silv3r_m001its ethernet10:02
silv3r_m001lan internet10:02
silv3r_m001FireFox||: where can i see the chipset name10:03
silv3r_m001in kinfocenter in which tab shud it be ?10:03
silv3r_m001its a 1.7ghz p4 may be intel 810 or 815e something like that10:04
rwwsilv3r_m001: open a terminal and type "lspci;lsusb" and copy the output you get to http://paste.ubuntu.com/ , then give us a link to the page it creates. The chipset name is in that output.10:04

cwilluEdgeX-, not specifically to install it, but whatever it supports, ubuntu will by definition also support10:19
Arenlorsilv3r_m001: when it goes down, can you ping an IP address? Or is the problem only with pinging a domain?10:19

Arenlorsilv3r_m001: so you can ping yourself but not any other IP? It definitely sounds like DNS to me10:23
silv3r_m001is it some problem with the isp which windows is able to tackle and ubuntu doesnt10:23
dichtbijzeehi. I set up an old compaq e500 with the alternate cd 8.10, I had no network at the time so i chose to configure it later. now i do have network. but ifconfig shows no eth0 while /etc/network/interfaces does.10:24
silv3r_m001Arenlor: even if its a dns issue then i shud be able to ping the ip of my gateway10:24
silv3r_m001it appears as if on some boots ubuntu is not able to bring up that interafece10:24
rwwArenlor: If pinging IP addresses is failing, it has nothing to do with DNS. DNS resolves hostnames to IP addresses; it isn't used if the computer already /has/ the IP address.10:24
ActionParsnipEthos: sudo cp -R /var/www/html/backup/* /var/www/html10:25
