Slart_batcoder-7: using desktop effects?00:00
Doc8404jrib do you happen to know what install i need to make these macros function http://pastebin.com/m3c28941800:00
mogi22Slart_, ok i do have dig00:00
batcoder-7Slart_: if i am i dont notice them, i didnt enable anything00:00
Slart_mogi22: try doing a dig on one of your own hostnames.. see if your dns has them..00:00
mogi22Slart_, dig google returned lots of data, dig (myclient HN) didnt return as much00:01
mogi22Slart_, i guess i dont understand the output of dig to tell00:01
Slart_batcoder-7: hmm.. I think desktop effects is disabled by default... then I don't really know what could be causing it00:01
eseven73batcoder-7: i have not tried xubuntu 8.10 but I have heard it's put on a few pounds00:01
Doc8404eseven73 i wouldnt do it yet00:02
eseven73oh no way, LTS for me00:02
batcoder-7eseven73: few pounds in what way ?00:02
eseven73just general performance00:02
batcoder-7eseven73: what do you think they did ?00:03
eseven73who knows00:03
batcoder-7i want to reverse that00:03
=== [maurice] is now known as crash
batcoder-7i got some wifi stuffrunning dont need that hmm00:03
mogi22Slart_, dig HN produces same output as dig rubbish, so i guess its failing, but dig server hostname fails too, so i dont think dig is a good way to test.00:03
=== crash is now known as Guest67494
eseven73batcoder-7: have you tried Icewm? its slimmer than XFCE00:04
mogi22Slart_, meaning if i dig dhcpserverHN i get same output as dig blahblah00:04
Slart_mogi22: hmm.. I'm looking at the man page for dig.. give me a second00:04
batcoder-7eseven73: i mean, no but i have seen screens of i, i mean a celeron 2.8 isnt that bad ;) it can handle xfce00:04
mogi22Slart_, i think dig is useful for fqdn on the net.  perhaps not on the lan?00:04
batcoder-7i think its just those daemons they got running in the background00:04
eseven73batcoder-7: ah ok then.00:05
batcoder-7eseven73: its not that bad, i just notice small stuff00:05
batcoder-7maybe its just me00:05
batcoder-7i do got firefox and like 20 tabs open00:05
=== Guest67494 is now known as nitridr
owhmogi22, Slart_: dig is the "DNS lookup utility", unless you are running a DNS, it's not for your LAN.00:06
mogi22Slart_, what i dont get is why it all worked on gutsy/feisty but now not on hardy.  i have same configs, so what changed?00:06
mogi22owh, dhcp server is running bind00:06
owhmogi22: What's the actual problem?00:07
amossHi guys! I use dual monitors.. how can I get a new window to open in my primary display?00:07
mogi22owh, basically i want the HN set by the clients on LAN (via dhcp) to work again (i used to be able to ping/ssh into boxes on LAN from my LAN client)00:07
mogi22owh, i can still do so if use their IP, and the HNs do appear in the server leases file00:08
rodsanyone able to help with virtualbox?00:08
ryanakcaAt boot, how can I have my swap be decrypted *after* my home partition? (the swap key is a file on /home, both partitions are in my crypttab, LUKS)00:08
eseven73try #Vbox rods00:08
Slart_owh: but mogi22 *is* running a dns on his lan00:08
amossrods: u can join virtualbox channel00:08
mogi22owh, but for some reason i cant ping the HN since upgrading to hardy (both clients and server)00:08
n8tusmogi22 -> what is HN? can you be more clearer or use the correct terms?00:08
Slart_owh: but we're trying to check if it's being updated properly from dhcp00:09
owhn8tus: hostname00:09
rodsI tried #vbox, no one responding00:09
ubuntupeanyone can help me with grub?00:09
mogi22n8tus, HN is hostname ... is that not the correct term?00:09
Siertubuntupe: what's the problem?00:09
amossrods: ok.. what is your problem?00:09
owhmogi22: Are you running the same DHCP server?00:09
n8tusowh -> it is not good to invent your own acronyms, hostname is correct but not HN, confusing as heck00:09
amossHi guys! I use dual monitors.. how can I get a new window to open in my primary display?00:09
ubuntupei make dual boot ubuntu and xp and i cant boot from xp00:10
owhn8tus: That's fair enough, though from the context it was pretty obvious to me.00:10
mogi22n8tus, how is hostname an acronym (i think you meant abbreviation) for "hostname"00:10
owhmogi22: It was the reference to HN00:10
=== cormster is now known as savagery
mogi22owh, dhcp server is same box but upgraded to hardy or is that not what you meant?00:11
Siertubuntupe: do you have the systems on one harddisk?00:11
n8tusmogi22 -> whatever you call it, dont invent hn as hostname00:11
ubuntupeyes i do00:11
owhSlart_: I've only come in on the tail of this and I was just responding to the comment about "i think dig is for ..."00:11
mogi22owh, yes i know what the reference was, but it sounded like he/she was saying use hostname as an abbreviation for hostname00:11
Siertubuntupe: XP is on the primary partition?00:11
owhmogi22: :)00:11
jinja-sheepUpon lock-screen you have the ability to leave message.  When you resume back to the Desktop, there are popups with the messages in them.  What is it called?  notify-something?00:12
Siertubuntupe: take a look int he file /boot/grub/menu.lst, make sure the Windows section contains "root (hd0,0)"00:12
Siertubuntupe: followed by the lines "makeactive" and "chainloader +1"00:12
supertankerMy user crontabs don't seem to be working. I've added a crontab with crontab-e to run every minute, I've made an /etc/cron.allow with the user's name in it, but it is not working00:12
supertankerAny ideas?00:12
owhSlart_, mogi22: Have you tested to see if bind is responding with something like nslookup?00:12
Slart_owh: I understand.. I just thought I would clarify00:12

bzwingzeroI'm trying to add programs through the Add/Remove programs app, however nothing is listed. Any ideas why?00:12
mogi22n8tus, anyway its cool, i agree with you about not making up your own abbreviations.  i just thought HN was standard.00:12
mogi22owh, well all clients have full dns and web access.00:13
mogi22owh, i have 0 problems after the upgrade (and lots of troubleshooting) except this one weird difference00:13
owhmogi22: Yeah, but the clients need to be using *your* DNS, unless all your clients are visible on the Internet.00:13
oofusr13, this is eut from earlier. i have tried going to system -> hardware drivers but its just saying that "no proprietary drivers are in use on this system"00:13
Siertubuntupe: can you add "chainloader +1" on a new line?00:14
mogi22owh, well the only dns in their resolv.conf is the local dns/dhcp server00:14
mogi22owh, its one box00:14
ahddmHey guys I just bought a laptop with no cd drive and want to install linux but I don't have a large enough usb drive. Is there anything I can do my HD has 2 partitions if that helps00:14
mogi22owh, dhcp sets the dns entry for all clients00:14
owhmogi22: So my suggestion would be to run nslookup and lookup some stuff, including local names and see what it does for starters.00:14
tiyowan_Hi folks. Just wanted to let you know that the three undersea Mediterranean cables which were damaged about two weeks seem to have been completely repaired.00:14
Siertubuntupe: also make sure your harddrive  still contains XP, e.g.: fdisk -l /dev/sda00:14
mogi22owh, i have dhcp setting most everything for the clients except hostname00:14
mogi22owh,  ok gimme a sec00:15
bzwingzeroI'm trying to add programs through the Add/Remove programs app, however nothing is listed. Synaptic still sees all avaliable apps though. Any ideas why add/remove doesn't?00:15
owhahddm: You could setup a network boot image and install it across the Internet.00:15

Lanais there a more advanced way to customize the colors of all the different parts of everything? I'm having the same problems that I did in windows with programs setting text to black or boxes to white so when I make my theme black background with grey text I can't see some things in programs because of how the programs set it00:16
=== Guest_560 is now known as emerald_wurx
bzwingzeroowh: All Available Applications00:16
owhahddm: No you'd need to create a USB image of a network installer.00:16
Lanaand sometimes programs don't have a way to change certain colors00:16
ludditehi my laptop screen keeps flickering all the time. 8.10. any reason for this?00:16
maraboutowh: sorry to easedrop but can you direct me to a web source that will explain  network boot images and how to use them.00:16
owhluddite: Intel graphics card?00:16
LanaI thought the color configurations were all affected by ubuntu instead of the programs00:16
mogi22owh, ok so clients can lookup google just fine, but looking up local hosts "server cant find hostname:NXDOMAIN" which doesnt surprise me00:16
ahddmowh: so i still need a larger usb?00:17
mogi22owh, since  i cant ping them either00:17
ludditeowh - yes. Mobile Intel Graphics00:17

ubuntupeSlart_: how i can make to boot 1st the Xp and 2 ubuntu?00:19
mogi22owh, Slart_ i'm just baffled what has changed btwn gutsy and hardy that causes this?  obviously my config doesnt account for that change and thats the problem ... ?00:19
Slart_jinarion: you are in the system, preferences, appearance dialog, right?00:19
maraboutowh: thanks as I have a house full of children and am looking to set up ubuntu on a number of machines in the near future...00:19
Doc8404does anyone here know what a gpgme development package is?00:19
owhahddm: marabout: Same link, no highlights: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/Netboot -- that should cover it. Check the issues with Hardy.00:19

ryanakcaAt boot, how can I have my swap be decrypted *after* my home partition? (the swap key is a file on /home, both partitions are in my crypttab, LUKS)00:20
ahddmowh: thanks alot hopefully it works00:20
Slart_ubuntupe: set the default setting in your grub configuration file00:20
owhluddite: On my machine it's because the TV output is being checked. If you have a little while, I can see if I can find the bug that outlined the issue. It's to do with the automatic resolution detection which queries the card including the TV output, which causes the flicker.00:20
ubuntupeSlart_: can you explein me how or show me?00:20

owhmogi22: So, then bind isn't talking to DHCP. I saw something to do with that. Which DHCP server are you using?00:22
maraboutohw: by the way do you know of a resource that discuss which machines are preferable for installing Ubuntu and which to avoid. I ask as i have an everex stepnote nc1502 that was a pain to get Ubuntu on and would like to steer clear of any other machines that have known issues.00:22

exodus_ms_sick: is ther anything in front of the $00:25
perilluxn8tus: so how do I know which is which?00:25

n8tusemerald_wurx -> why dont you just let it go through its pace?00:29
smacnaywhen doing a dialup ppp connection in ubuntu, should there be a listing with the "route" command - It just hangs (like the attempted ppp connection) when I use "route" to see the status.00:29
perilluxn8tus: I just connect to a linksys router which connects to the internet00:29
emerald_wurxn8tus: The virtual machine will not start with the -server kernel - no PAE support.00:29
mogi22owh, if you tell me what to google, i can happily hunt too.  e.g. dhcp not talking to bind?00:30
smacnayI think the dialup problems I have stem from there being no route with the ppp connection.00:30
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about bind00:30
smacnayNot sure how to address this so that it works when I use either wvdial or pon/poff.00:30

tiyowanCadman21: Just a quick tip. Some the package names are quite abbreviated, so if at any point you aren't able to find a specific package, then use the synaptic package manager from system -> admin.01:10
Cadman21tiyowan: so is it better to try and find themes that are the repositories?01:11
ardchoilleCadman21: apt-cache search avant01:11

tiyowanCadman21: That Bluespace is a GTK theme. Ok, I'll describe how to install those. Just open up System -> Pref. -> Appearance | Theme. And just click and drag the tarball you downloaded into the theme window.01:49
vjacobyoyoto: how do you prefer to learn, continually through trial and error or by reading a book01:49
Melio1i'm testing it out. the site doesnt really get into the webcam config ect. but i don't care about it01:49
maraboutanyone know where I can find the minimum system requirements for installing Ubuntu on a celeron machine01:49
Yoyotovjacob, Well I like examples that I can try that way i can get a grip on what to do, but I prefer to read because I don't like rewinding and pausing videos01:49
vjacobmarabout: they're the same as most other pcs, you probably want >512Mb of RAM01:50
usr13marabout: I don't think there are any "minimum system requirements"  It just runs slow on slow machines and faster on faster ones.01:50
vjacobyoyota: if I were you I'd just google with some keywords like 'linux introduction book" or "linux tutorials step-by-step"01:51
Lexvegasmarabout, I run ubuntu normal install on an old laptop with 256Mb, but i wouldnt reccomend it01:52
maraboutvjacob: so if the machine doesn't have that much ram forget it. Or are there some work arounds, use an earlier Ubunut or...01:52

Yoyotovjacob, i'm kind of looking for some reccomended guide.....01:52
vjacobrecommended by who, all of us, or one of us01:52

vjacobmarabout: edubuntu... I'd say yes, you don't want them falling asleep01:54
tiyowanrainabba: Agreed.01:54
vjacobmarabout: what you could do is to get some ram for them, however I'd venture to say next moment you01:55
Lexvegasmarabout, maybe xubuntu with educational software?01:55
usr13marabout: Put more RAM in it.01:55
vjacobwillbe upgrading the next component (video)...then processor...even a real low end computer these days is better than that old machine01:55
tiyowanCadman21: I guess what I'm trying to point out is, you have a *lot* of choice over how you want to mix and match the different parts of your GUI. It'll take a while, so don't get frustrated. :)01:55
vjacobyoyota: one of the things I've noticed after starting to use linux is that there is no right/wrong in terms of alternative except what you like. Personally, I've never read such a book01:56
usr13marabout: But if you run fluxbox rather than gnome or KDE it will use quite a bit less memory.01:56
TheFunkbombokay, I got me an ethernet card.  As soon as the room is clear, I'll hook it up01:56

Dexijalonso, you should have at least a 500watt for that01:59
tiyowanCadman21: No problem at all. :) Yes, you can download individual themes as well for some applications. AWN has plenty of themes, too. Just look around, take it easy, spend a couple of days setting up your desktop, and you'll be all set.01:59
vjacobyoyoto: okay, that's good too, just don't forget that linux is also trial/error01:59

ubottusudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE)02:07

tinker_IndyGunFreak; do you mean go there before running update manager, ask for a new driver then run update manager?02:58
mrgenixuschris: how's it going? may I pm you direct so I don't lose the chat?02:58
IndyGunFreaktinker_: no,  after you update, it *should* work after you enable it.... do you have it enabled on 8.04?02:59
mrgenixuskafaen: fix your issue?02:59
rhetoricwebcamwonder: that might help, thanks02:59
chriswhats the chmod thing again?02:59
WebcamWonderrhetoric: npz02:59
vermrgenxius:yes memtest86, md5s on the disk image, burned @ 4x02:59
tinker_IndyGunFreak;  Yes there is just a single thing at that path and it is enabled in 8.0402:59
kristian_ka faen02:59
valroswhat would most likely be causing a spontaneous absence of an internet connection, happens randomly for about 20 secs at a time03:00
IndyGunFreaktinker_: ok, does it reference your nvidia driver?03:00
mrgenixusver: and you're getting seek errors?03:00
mrgenixusdid you md5sum the machine you burned on?03:00
vermrgenxius:buffer I/O error03:00
mrgenixuser memtest03:00
mrgenixusver: what drive is it?03:01
tinker_IndyGunFreak;  I think so,  it lists one nvidia proprietary driver and it says it is in use and enabled03:01
FreeTuxTepahere again03:01
kafaenmrgenixus: Nope cant find it.03:01
mrgenixusvalros: ip-address conflict03:01
IndyGunFreaktinker_: ok, so what makes you think it won't work in 8.10?03:01
vermrgenxius:make n model?03:01
jinja-sheepI'm trying to learn the command 'screen'  -- It allows me to display what I'm doing on the terminal to other side?03:01
IndyGunFreakmrgenixus: i had a horrible time w/ ISO's i downloaded this weekend, none of them would work (was mailing disks)... finally found a couople on other sites and downloaded them and they worked03:01
tinker_IndyGunFreak,  when I run update manager it stops with an error message saying it can't find a new driver for me03:01
IndyGunFreaktinker_: doesn't make much sense....03:02
mrgenixuschris: chmod -R 777 /media/your-disk03:02
tinker_IndyGunFreak, it didn't occur to me that I could tell update manager to go ahead anyway, let me try that03:02
mrgenixusthat will give "Everyone" "Full Control" on that disk03:02
vermrgenxius:HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH15F03:02
IndyGunFreaktinker_: if that doesn't work, try disabling the restricted driver, restart, run update manager, then once everything is updated, try to reenable the driver.. but it should work in 8.10 w/ the legacy driver (note *should* make sure you have stuff backed up just in case)03:03
fulat2k1hi folks, is there a way i can apply the same font properties which i've set to gnome for qt/kde apps in 8.10?03:03

vermrgenxius:no, the device works like a champ03:04
Yoyotothe ubuntu forums which seem to be the only place with the answer I need are down, so does anyone know what to do if my add/remove thing is empty?03:04

tortisehi, i'm having a bit of trouble with 8.04.  I installed wicd, but wasn't pleased with it, so i reinstalled networkmanager. the problem is that networkmanager no longer appears to start in the tray automatically..

kristian_is "traceroute" and "tracert" the same thing? they both give the same man page, from "man traceroute" and "man tracert", but they give me completely different results. when i type "traceroute google.com" i get this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/103003/ - while from "sudo tracert google.com" i get this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/103004/ - so there has to be a difference? (strange that i have to run tracert as sudo and not traceroute as sudo!) i ha03:29

nickrudmsutton, keep asking, at the rate you've been doing so far. Someone probably will come through. markpee you're not an op03:30
nsadminzetharx none. best raid is hardware raid03:31

markpeenickrud, care to explain that '?03:31
Flannelmarkpee: Please behave yourself.03:31
kristian_w3wsrmn : ok thanks. :-) but tracert/traceroute -I still gives a less complete route than tracert in cmd/windows, how can i get the complete route? :-)03:32
nsadminmarkpee: yer feeling the power... usually this happens about 6-10 months after you become an op03:33

mogi22why do i get errors only upon stopping bind?03:34
mogi22and should i care?03:34
LexvegasDexi, i dont know what it would be, but it sounds like something in the accesability section03:34
w3wsrmnkristian_: oh, sorry, my response wasn't clear. you'll want to use traceroute, not tracert. And don't use the -I switch as most hops won't respond to the pings.03:34
nsadminmkquist: what info would be available to build fstab from?03:34
msuttonI'm inn need of some RAID expertise! Messed up my raid while trying to grow it. Anyone able to help me out?03:34

helocan i just ignore the packages that are missing from the netbook remix list?03:38
LexvegasDexi, np glad to help03:38
mattFlannel, ahh ok, thanks.03:38
kristian_w3wsrmn : well, if i use traceroute alone i get this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/103003/ - no results. and i dont think "tracert" = "traceroute -I", because i get much better results from "traceroute -I" than from "tracert". basically "traceroute" = no results, "tracert" = some result, "traceroute -I" = more complete result, but still the result from cmd in windows is more complete, showing more accurate. :-/03:39
Dexiomg compiz is so nice i gotta go pee03:39

msuttonI attempted to grow my RAID using mdadm --grow, it started throwing a lot of errors, I didn't think at the time and started expanding my system RAID 1. It stopped the grow and now I am unable to boot my machine off the RAID 1.03:40
msuttonI've 3 raid partitions, two RAID 1s (Root and Swap) and a RAID 5 on 4 disks. I added a 5th and attempted to grow my root partition.03:41
msuttonI didn't think about growing the live system partition.03:41
tortisefixed. i did not have network-manager-gnome.  thank you very much.  have a wonderful weekend.03:42

StargazerTy, adam7.03:43
msuttonWell, technically they are all 4 disk raids. The 3 different RAID systems are on the same 4 disks. But I don't think thats where the problem is.03:43
msuttonIt's that the grow stopped in the middle of doing it.03:43
msuttonand the errors it was throwing before that03:43
w3wsrmnkristian_: the traceroute manpage states tracert = traceroute -I. Anyways, what do you mean by "windows is more complete"? Do certain which respond under windows provide only * under linux?03:43

zer0what sudo to install??03:59
ubottukeytouch (source: keytouch): A program to configure extra function keys in multimedia keyboards. In component universe, is optional. Version 2.3.2-2.1ubuntu1 (intrepid), package size 170 kB, installed size 816 kB03:59
John`Aoriginally it would error out midway through the installation using the GUI @ the 62% mark03:59
Dexiziroday, not in there. oh well. :p do you know what could cause (since this login) my screen refresh rate to be limited to 50 or 51, not 75 like it was before?03:59
w3wsrmnkristian_: the difference in a number of hops could be due to the lovely redundancy of the interwebs. one hope may be sending you down a path which requires communicating with more switches/routers, hence the additional hops.03:59
John`Ausing the alternate CD i found the errors quicker.. generally corrupt .deb files03:59
zirodayJohn`A: tried the alternate cd?03:59
Javierit only has windows drivers03:59
John`Athose would error out during within 30% of completion04:00
zirodayJohn`A: right, and you certain you md5sum'd both cds and they checked out?04:00
John`Ai didnt md5sum them after they werre burnt no04:00
Lexvegaszer0, look for "run a terminal" in the shortcut settings controll pannel04:00
zer0let me fix wicd first04:00
John`Ai ran a validation on one cd and it had a bunch of bad sectors... i tried burning these again using a slower speed but didnt check them that time04:00
w3wsrmnkristian_: another thing, by default traceroute used UDP (-U), which gave you only *. It's possible your firewall (on linux, since windows was fine) is blocking the UDP packets.04:00

kristian_w3wsrmn : ok, i understand that the number of switches/routers will increase the number of hops, but ever time i traceroute with ubuntu the hops is 10 less then when i traceroute with windows. i've tried several times now, and i cant see how this can just be a coincident, it has to have something to do with the os. any thoughts? - got no firewall on ubuntu so it should be fine. i am not sure how the wireless router or my modem/router is co04:04

ussercplab2-58: you'll have to setup a local mirror of ubuntu repositories on the server, probably setup NIS too04:19
rwwcoj: Hmm, so you don't have a firewall set up. Are you sure that your computer's getting the same internal IP address in both Windows and Linux? 'cause it's possible that it's not, and that's throwing off the forwarding.04:19

maraboutLexvegas:  Ok I see what you are saying. I was thinking of just 'copying' the iso onto the hard drive but you did an actual 'install' onto the hard drive.So If I wanted the emachine to boot off of that HD Ubuntu would need to be installed onto to. as opposed to just 'copying' the iso onto the drive.04:23
rwwcoj: Okay, so you're definitely forwarding it properly on the router, you don't have a firewall set up... KTorrent is definitely using the right port? I haven't used "netstat" much, but I hear that's the way to check that.04:23

cplab2-58usser; why is that so? I think with gui its much easier to use04:24
ussercplab2-58: its a tad outdated, apt-mirror is in the repositories by default now, to install it sudo apt-get install apt-mirror04:25
cplab2-58usser; so i have to install this on both the server and client machines04:25
cojrww: yeah, the port is set correctly in ktorrent, but the thing is that the port itself is reported as closed in that utorrent port checker04:25

Lexvegasmarabout, well just copying the iso wont work. you need to install somehow treat the HD as a cd and make it live (much slower)04:25

cojrww: GRC shieldsup detects my IP wrongly but shows the port as open04:26
cojso i'm not sure if that's the answer04:26
ussercplab2-58: no apt-mirror is installed on server only, its used to make a local snapshot of ubuntu repos locally, then you just point your clients to your local server so that they fetch updates from it not from ubuntu.com04:26

cplab2-58usser; yes i meant we used the server cd itself, but i am just asking whether the installation procedure is same?04:38
overriderrww: thanks04:39
ussercplab2-58: yea pretty much04:39
BaxFlannel: so there shouldn't be any drastic changes when I update, just a "different engine under the hood" sort of speak, right?  It's not like it's going to move my files everywhere or something?04:39
FlannelBax: Nope, just an upgrade.04:40
redvamp128can someone please pm me with the command to check the fstab04:40
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 !Partitions04:40
Flannelredvamp128: What do you mean 'check' fstab?04:40
gogereaverBax lol no upgrades = systemm files04:40
gogereaverBax not anything you have stored04:41
qqxis there anyone that could please help me get my bluetooth headset working with my computer?04:41
Hilikusi used to have a swap partition but it's not there anymore, i think my server crashed and something got corrupted, how do i fix that?04:41
rwwredvamp128: what do you mean? Do you want to mount partitions you've added to fstab? If so, "mount -a" should do that...04:41
joljamhow can run a program "as root" in linux04:41
cplab2-58usser; thank you very much. Ii'll get in contact with you soon after I finish with the server. How long will you be around04:41
Flannel!sudo | John`A04:41
ubottuJohn`A: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE)04:41
Flanneler, joljam ^^04:41
qqxjoljam, sudo su04:41
rwwjoljam: command-line programs: sudo commandname. Graphical programs: gksudo commandname04:41
Hilikusi still see the partition but there seems to be something wrong with the partition table04:41
redvamp128ahh that was the command04:41
ussercplab2-58: i  was about to go sleep sorry04:42
Hilikus/dev/sda3 4636 4867 1863540 5 Extended04:42
redvamp128(sudo mount -a) and it didnt' give me an error04:42
Hilikus/dev/sda5 4636 4867 1863508+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris04:42
redvamp128so that means it took my swap04:42
rwwqqx: "sudo -i" works better than "sudo su"04:42
Hilikustwo devices have the same Start and End, is that normal?04:42
cplab2-58usser; keep your system on. Is there any facility that I can beep ur box so that you wake up??04:42
qqxrww could you help me with my bluetooth headset04:43
rwwHilikus: Yes, if one is an extended partition and the other is inside that extended partition.04:43
rwwqqx: nope04:43
Dexioh wow am i stupid04:43
Hilikusrww ok, that seems to be the case so the partition table is not corrupt04:43
Dexiive been playing the same 5 songs over and over because i accidentally put "ss" in the search field of amarok04:43
rwwHilikus: that's correct. Extended partitions are kinda like boxes that can hold other partitions. It's entirely normal ;)04:43
cojrww: there's no icon that i can see within the transmission window itself. are you perhaps thinking about utorrent?04:43
alex-82is the proper way to add a start-up script to ubuntu to use update-rc.d ?04:43
Hilikusso whats the mount point for a swap partition??04:44
unopalex-82, that's one way04:44
rwwcoj: Heh. It appears that I'm thinking of deluge-torrent, actually. Sorry about that.04:44
BaxFlannel: I just had a problem upgrading, it can't finish.  It's blaming my Internet connection, but I think it can't find the necessary files from the error message I'm getting04:44
Hilikusin fstab my swap entry has "none" as mount point04:44
cojrww: oh ok04:44
unopHilikus, that's normal - a swap entry is not mounted somewhere - because it would be useless if it were04:45
alex-82unop: is there a file somewhere where I can just add the code?04:45
_2Hilikus none is as good as anything for a mountpoint for swap space04:45
rwwHilikus: swap partitions don't have mount points, so that's also normal ;)04:45
Hilikusunop sigh, ok, so whats wrong then?? my system is reporting 0k swap space04:45
unopalex-82, what do you mean?  you want to run some code when the machine boots?04:45
FlannelBax: You're on 7.04, right?04:45
qqxcan anyone tell me how the $%#$ to install blueman?04:45

unopHilikus, what does this give you?   cat /proc/swaps04:46

qqxnsadmin, what do you mean?04:47
unopHilikus,  how about this.   sudo mount -a;  cat /proc/swaps04:47
FlannelBax: right, you need to move your repos to using http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/, see the note about it on the upgrades page (linked from here...)04:47
Flannel!upgrade | Bax04:47
ubottuBax: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes04:47
alex-82unop: thanks, what if I just want it to run for a particular user (ie can i put it in the home dir somewhere?)04:47
_2Hilikus you might check with "blkid" to make sure that the uuid for the swap is correct.  also you might add either auto or defaults  as an option in the fstab04:47
rwwHilikus: try "sudo swapon /dev/sda5" then check again.04:47
unop!startup | alex-8204:47

incadudeFthe forums is down. does anyone know how long it will be down for?04:47
unopalex-82, you can also use sudo  in /etc/rc.local  to run the code as another user04:48
Hilikusunop same result04:48
us3rXAnyone point me in the right direction to get Atheros AR242x wifi working? Since the forums are down. =p04:48
Hilikus_2 i'll do that, thanks04:48
nickrudincadudeF, if anyone knows, they'll be in #ubuntuforums04:48
unopHilikus, I suspect your swap partition's UUID has changed04:48
us3rXI tried a few aways on google, but none seem to be working =s04:48
Hilikusrww now it reports something!04:48
unopHilikus, what's on the line above the swap entry in /etc/fstab?04:48
Hilikusafter swapon04:48
Hilikus/dev/sda5 partition 1863500 0 -104:49
_2Hilikus so it's probably the uuid as i first said04:49
rwwHilikus: swapon / swapoff is the "correct" way to "mount" swap partitions. So, I guess your question now is why it didn't get swapon'd in the first place. I'd guess UUID change too.04:49
Dracieanyone here have an ipod touch?04:49

ubottuDracie: 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?04:49

rwwincadudeF: if you have a support question, here. If not, #ubuntu-offtopic.04:53
nickrudincadudeF, #ubuntu-offtopic is general chat about ubuntu04:53
_2nickrud i know, that's why i said "sorry"04:53
randalok im being ignored is there anyone here i can talk to that knows how to use usplash plz help04:53
ubottuThe people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines04:54
nickrudrandal, you're probably not being ignored; ask every 5 minutes or so and someone will step in04:54
Jack_SparrowEvening nickrud04:54
rwwrandal: You're not being ignored. If anyone knew the answer to your question, they'd help you. Unfortunately, most people don't bother playing with usplash, so this is outside of most peoples' expertise.04:54

munk_nsadmin yes i can...05:00
_2randal only with "gpm" installed and running05:00

unopcplab2-58, you can delete that user's home directory (should be at /home/student/ )05:01
meoblast001how does one install mod_rewrite on a copy of apache from the ubuntu repositories?05:02
Hilikusyou guys were all right, it was a UUID change05:02
Hilikusthanks a lot!05:02
rwwmeoblast001: I think it's installed along with apache. That's my impression from someone asking that the other day, anyway.05:02
randal_2 Flannel ok if i use this cosole it gets rid of one error but the error im getting is usplash: No usable theme found for 1024x76805:02
rwwHilikus: yeah, UUID's aren't supposed to change... but sometimes they do and things get odd. Glad you figured it out :)05:03
nsadminmummy's all right... daddy's all right... they just seem a little weird...05:03
Dracie_i dislike how the ubuntu default boot has the quiet option on... nobody wants to sit and wait and look at just abar05:03
meoblast001rww: the only other possible reason this installation is failing is... lack of some JSON thing.... i'll look into that and ask if i have any more questions05:03
cplab2-58In one of our systems, we have created a user called student, and due to some problems the user was deleted. but now the we are unable to create the same user as the home directory already exists. Can anyone tell how to solve this issue for creating the same user05:03
_2cplab2-58 two methoods from the command line,   sudo rm -r <users home> ;adduser student      2.  useradd -h <users home> student      better man the command i might have pulled the wrong switch -h05:03
meoblast001rww: or a bug05:03
maraboutJack_Sparrow: what about an install of Grub or some other CLI via floppy which I can then attach an ethernet cable and install via net05:03
Jack_SparrowDracie_, edit out quiet and splash05:03
unopmeoblast001, i guess it's just a matter of enabling that module (see a2enmod)05:03
rwwmeoblast001: I don't know if it's turned on by default, though. Do you know how to enable Apache modules?05:03
randal_2: Flannel so what do you guys think05:03
meoblast001rww: no i do not05:04
Dracie_Jack_Sparrow, yeah i know.. just an observation.. i am bored05:04
Dracie_my cable is going at 54 k modem speeds05:04
rwwDracie_: eh, that's debatable. Personally, I turn off usplash altogether, though apparently not everyone agrees with that aesthetic ;)05:04
Jack_Sparrowmarabout, We have a ton of ways to install.  YOu have a  hardware restriction stopping you ..  I wont be of any help05:04
kBangcplab2-58, unop answered you...delete the /home/student dir05:04
cplab2-58_2; the home directory cannot be deleted simply. It needs special previledges05:04
Dracie_rww, yeah i keep splash on but put disable quiet.. i like pretty and functionality05:04
rwwmeoblast001: as unop said, check the man page for a2enmod05:04
_2randal sounds like you don't have a correct picture for the size or, it's in the wrong location,  or, fbcon doesn't support that rez on that hardware05:04
huwenfengJack_Sparrow: what's the name of the calender?05:04
ubottusudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE)05:04
meoblast001rww: k05:05
Jack_Sparrowhuwenfeng, sunbird or sunfire05:05
_2cplab2-58 that's why i said sudo05:05
albechis there a way i can disable the automounter for certain devices?05:05
kBangcplab2-58, root is required, surely someone has root privs?05:05
Dracie_kBang, sudo05:05
nsadmincplab2-58 you might as well look at the man pages of: useradd, usermod, userdel, groupadd, groupmod, groupdel because with what you're doing you might need it05:05
randal_2: the read me that came with the theme said to use it on that size and where shold it be located\05:05
kBangthanks, but I don't need it Dracie_ >.>05:05
Dracie_weee im totally out of it05:05
munk_Dracie_: you romanian05:05
John`Aback again05:06
meoblast001rww: so a2enmod mod_rewrite?05:06
_2kBang root is not required,  'superuser' is required, it just happens to be called root on 99.99% linux systems05:06
randal_2: you said it could be in the wrong location what location should it be in05:06
munk_Dracie_: oh sorry05:06
rwwmeoblast001: I'd assume so, yes. Like I said, I'm going off what I remember from someone else talking about this the other day. That sounds right, though.05:06
meoblast001rww: wait... its rewrite... not mod_rewrite05:06
_2randal that i'm not familear with, sorry.05:06
unop_2, having said that - you wouldn't date rename the root user :)05:06
unop_2, dare*05:07
randal_2 ok what about this fbcon doesn't support that rez on that hardware05:07
_2unop i have.05:07
maraboutJack_Sparrow: by 'restriction' do you mean that the HD has no OS on it? as my problem is that CD drive is broken and I cant boot from USB. The HD i have is blank no OS whatsoever.05:07
_2unop that's why i said it.05:07
nsadminunless the root user looked like jessica alba, I wouldn't date her :)05:07
randal_2 so you mean it could be my hardware05:07
_2randal test with an 800x600 maybe ?05:07
randal_2 i think your right i tried puting a bottscreen on windows but i could never get it to work becasue my computer wouldnt handle it05:08

nsadminlonger maybe05:17
cplab2-58_2; no there is no problem with any broken packages or synaptic manager.05:17
nickrudTheFunkbomb, but there's a few upgrades that require reboots05:17
us3rXTill an update makes you reboot? =p05:17
TheFunkbombso it isn't like windows where I have to reboot after 48 hours?05:17
TheFunkbombor things get buggy05:17
_2TheFunkbomb in practice, the unix time limitation will shut it down in about 2031  if it makes it that long05:18
unopTheFunkbomb, never say never , things get buggy on linux too05:18
qqx_2 "the unix time limitation"?05:18
TheFunkbombyeah, but I can expect a longer uptime than 48 hours, right?05:18
Cadman21can someone lead me to a good program for loading music to an ipod?05:18
qwexerthefunkbomb: depends on what you run,05:18
nsadminTheFunkbomb: You have typed a line in this irc chat. FOr windows to understand what this means, you must reboot. Choose: one second, now05:18
Jack_SparrowTheFunkbomb, firefox 3 seems to have a memory leak, but in general.. yes05:18
qwexerthefunkbomb: I've had my laptop on for almost a week with no problems05:18
_2cplab2-58 then it's probably something im not aquainted with.05:18

TheFunkbombnext question.  I like to humiliate my ex-girlfriend playing literati.  It requires Java.05:20
nsadminTheFunkbomb: I ran a lab server that was doing mail, primary dns, web service, shell accounts (including for the java, c++, c, web design and programming, unix use, unix admin courses)05:20
unopalex-82, edit that user's  .bashrc05:20

Aji-Daha1aso...my touchpad doesn't seem to two-finger scroll and I'm not sure how to set that feature.  Ideas?05:23
Jack_Sparrowcplab2-58, that looks fine.. did you sudo apt-get update?05:23
_2ldiamond if you like living on the edge,  temporarly set a root password, run   sudo kill -9 -1   login as root dismount the home partition and use parted05:24
unop_2, that's not a good idea using SIGKILL right off the bat - especially as the superuser05:24
James2432TheFunkbomb, thats the URL I had it said: ERROR The requested URL could not be retrieved...now it says undermaintenance .... thanks anyways05:24

TheFunkbombsorry.  I must have gotten in just under the wire05:25
ldiamond_2, that wouldnt allow me to resize the main linux partition right?05:25

rww!anyone | TheFunkbomb05:25
ubottuTheFunkbomb: 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?05:25
James2432TheFunkbomb, I think they are updating their database to cope with all the posts05:25
_2ldiamond yes actually, i think you can even resize /  if you mount it ro first.  but i'm not going to hand hold on that one.05:26
TheFunkbombrww, ???05:26
rwwTheFunkbomb: oops, sorry. I accidentally mixed up your nick with the one above yours.05:26
TheFunkbombIt happens all the time ;)05:27
ldiamondrww, why bother about people starting questions with "anyone".... who cares really..?05:27
_2ldiamond at any rate, editing partitions is always at the risk of losing all data on the entire disk.  so use at your own discresion05:27
rwwldiamond: I don't care. However, the people who ask questions like "Has anyone used PROGRAMNAME before?" and ends up getting no responses, when they could have just said what their actual question/problem is and gotten responses, probably should care.05:28
TheFunkbombldiamond, maybe to cut down on those questions?05:28

cplab2-58nickrud; no. the thing is that I am not able to do updations05:46
James2432@flashkidd, what's wrong?05:47
_2James2432 boot speed is related to services being started at boot time and whether each script waits on the other to finish or not.05:47
nickrudcplab2-58, put the results of  sudo apt-get update  on http://paste.ubuntu.com please05:47
James2432@_2...thats what I just said with (because of server services)05:47
linux_newbiesparrow: it didn't work can you please check my grub menu05:47

_2oxymoron if you had a root shell open at present you could fix it from there though06:02
dr_willisSmegzor,   trouble shoot the problem. Perhaps  your /dev/dvd link or somthing is wrong06:02
flashkiddJames2432: I am thinking in buy a new sata cdrom it is not so expensive, and is better than ide drives06:02
_2oxymoron i was answering on the assumption that you don't have superuser shell/s at present.06:02
Smegzori'm going to try another codec..06:03
James2432@flashkidd, i'll pm you something06:03

mogi22if bind is the group for my rndc.key file, and dhcpd user is in the group bind, shouldnt dhcpd user be able to read the key file?06:14
mogi22its perm is 64006:14
neil_d__2: yes06:14
mogi22i just find it odd that dhcpd cant access the file unless its 644 or gorup = dhcpd.  i thought adding dhcpd user to group bind would do the trick06:15

garrettjUbuntu really needs a distinct walkthrough of everything important. Like a help file pointing out all the different options in the sound section. Specifically why there are 1000000000000000 options in the drop down menus.06:22
daredevilthere_2: thats an option but wht if i want to block access to so many programs than?06:22
venportok BRB06:22
molsonhello, I have a question about wifi drivers for ubuntu...06:23
garrettjand each option in those drop down menus makes different sounds come out of different speakers06:23

neil_d__2: about that sshd user, could sshd be using an external program to check?06:24
qqx!ask | molson06:24

daredeviltherebazhang: no not guest account , accounts are already created06:24
_2daredevilthere another option would be dir perms.  you could move executables to something like /usr/local/bin  and limit the access to the dir    but again,  you are talking about a very custom approach in either case.06:24

huwenfengshao: please do not use chinese here.06:25
eseven73garrettj: type man find in a terminal06:26

garrettjhere's another question: How do I get pulseaudio back, in full, when I followed a tutorial to take it off and correct my sound (which it didn't). I never got to mess around with PULSE06:27
eseven73'back'? meaning you uninstalled it garrettj ?06:28
garrettjto be honest06:28
qqxi cant seem to get pulse audio to work. here's the error i get: http://paste.ubuntu.com/103031/ any help or advice?06:28
eseven73'sudo apt-get install pulseaudio' should do it06:28
garrettjI can't really remember what I did to get it off06:28
nickrudmolson, did you try sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper?  Better yet, try system->admin->hardware drivers, see if it shows a driver for your card06:28
garrettjI followed some tutorial eseven7306:28

garrettjeseven73 when I go to synaptic manager, there are like 100 things to do with pulse, do I install them all?06:29
molsonnickrud, I've tried both.  the apt-get install ndiswrapper does not work (it says it cannot find the package).  the hardware drivers do not show up in the second method listed.06:29
huwenfengeseven73: what does "pm" mean?06:29
_2oops .06:29
neil_d__2: that wasn't it, still giving the error. :(06:29
molsonnickrud,  ndiswrapper does not show up in the synaptec manager either06:30
nickrudmolson, go to system->admin->software sources, make sure main, restricted, universe and multiverse are enabled. It'll update your sources, and try again06:30
James2432@huwenfeng, private message: double click on his name06:30
eseven73garrettj: hmm i would just install pulseaudio, that other stuff listed there are just extras i beleive, at any rate, once you choose pulseaudio, it will pull in everything else it needs anyways06:30

molsonnickrud, these options are all enabled.  I also went ahead and enabled "source code"06:32
James2432@Dexi shell scripting is pretty much well macros06:33
nickrudmolson, if you still can't find ndiswrapper, then your sources.list got messed up somehow.   sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list ~/Desktop , then run through the system->admin->software sources again to rebuild them.06:33
nickrud!hardysources | molson (here's complete instructions, works for hardy on up)06:34
ubottumolson (here's complete instructions, works for hardy on up): In System->Admin->Software Sources, enable (main) (universe) (restricted) and (multiverse) and disable the Cdrom on the Ubuntu Software tab. On the Updates tab, enable (hardy-security) and (hardy-updates).06:34

nickrudmolson, either my memory of package names was faulty, or the naming got changed. Almost certainly the former06:42

nickrudJohn`A, if the disk is bad, you need to reburn it06:52
John`Anickrud this is like the 7th disk ive burnt of it06:52
John`Adifferent ISO's at times06:53
nickrudJohn`A, you should burn as slowly as possible, and make sure the iso is good06:53
mrgenixusJohn`A: I don't know anything baout your issues...  as far as the bad cd you burned, you have to brun a nw one06:53
im5John`A: ummmm...check the md5 sum of the iso? if that is good just reburn...if the check fails re download ubuntu06:53
nickrud!md5sum | John`A06:53
ubottuJohn`A: To verify the integrity of a download, use the md5sum - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM for more06:53
poboy975linuxI have two extra hard drives in my ubuntu box...they show in the file browser as size listed..but they are unable to be mounted. I ran the ls /dev/disk/by-uuid/ -alh and it shows a sdb1 device...but when i type  sudo parted /dev/sdb1 p it says unrecognised disk label06:53
John`Athe checksum was perfect06:53
John`Acomplete match06:53
mrgenixusthen your ram is porbably bad06:53

whitedoxWould ethernetting 2 PC's together, one being a Linux OS and one being a WIndows OS work for just file browsing? Like I need to access some files on my linux box on my Vista box, and copy them over. Would this work?06:54
mrgenixusyou'll find bad areas in your ram06:54
im5poboy975linux: what format are the disks?06:54
John`Alast cd i burnt wasthe alternate cd ver06:54
mrgenixusnickrud: the disk checksums were ok though, which means he's not reading the disc consitently06:54
im5what can record from my sound card (or rather pulseaudio, with a monitor source) and broadcast that as an mp3 stream to an icecast server...or what can transcode from ogg to mp3...i've been using ices2 but the majority of programs dont support ogg without a codec (atleast on losedows) means i need to use mp3...06:54
nickrudmrgenixus, iso checksums I think he said06:54
John`Athe original one i burnt was with the gui installer and i got it to install on the hd alone but when i wanted to reinstall so it would detect BOTH harddrives then it started problems06:54
poboy975linuxI dont know.. they are used hard drives...I have never been able to do anything with them....gparted doesnt see them06:54
mrgenixusright -- oh -- nvm I get it06:54
nickrudJohn`A, same disk that installed correctly?06:55
poboy975linuxis there a way for me to reformat and partition for linux?06:55
im5John`A: ummm...it should detect both hdds...its not like its a retard disk..it knows if theres a hdd...06:55
John`Athats what i dont get06:55
im5poboy975linux: you wanna reformat?06:55
John`Ai know but i didnt try instaling with both harddrives connected06:55
poboy975linuxthese two extra drives....not my main drive06:55
John`Athatswhy i tried reinstalling06:55
im5poboy975linux:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingANewHardDrive06:56

nickrudJohn`A, strange.06:56

im5poboy975linux: are they plugged in?06:57

John`Athe disc i have dsl on is a different brand than the ones im burning for ubuntu.. of course its size is 650mb06:57
John`Aso  i cant burn ubuntu to it :|06:57
mrgenixusim5: which is to say?06:57
poboy975linuxthey are internal sata drives....they show in the cmos ok06:57
im5mrgenixus: in other words: DAMNIT06:57

gizmodr_willis, just asking maybe in here also know about this07:06
whitedoxWhat filesystem does Ubuntu use?07:06
gizmokrlhc8, you mean?\07:06
dr_willisgizmo,  im not sure anyone knows what you are really asking about...07:06
krlhc8whitedox: depends, usually ext3 by default07:06
nsadminwhitedox: a filesystem supported by thelinux kernel07:06
krlhc8gizmo: I was kidding.07:06
duhenwhitedox ext 2 ext 3 reiserfs an dmore07:07
gizmodr_willis, like FloodBot1  its a bot that come from shell right?07:07

ubottugizmo: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!07:07
dr_willisgizmo,  it could just be a program running on someones  pc at home. :)07:07
bazhanggizmo, take chat to #ubuntu-offtopic NOT here07:08
whitedoxSo...If I installed Ubuntu Hardy fresh off the disc, then it is ext3? Or is there a way to check?07:09
krlhc8I'm having problems with webcams in general on my Intel Inspiron 640m laptop.  Webcams work fine on my other laptop (gateway) but not with the intel laptop.  What's up with that?07:09
poboy975linuxso anyone have any ideas for me?07:10
rwwwhitedox: Yes, by default it's ext3. You can check by running "mount" and looking at the "type" of the partitions you care about.07:10
nsadminwhitedox: it's what's cool... it's what's powerful... it's your choice, and you get to make it when you install07:10
krlhc8poboy975linux: can't see your question...07:11
whitedoxnsadmin: The thing is, I don't remember what I chose.07:11
duhenwhtiedox if it works you have no problem07:11
garretthi, I lost my bottom panel which applications minimize to, how do i get it back?07:11
nsadminpoboy975linux: I don't have very many ideas... the last one I had involved chocolate ice cream, a thorn off a rose and about 10 truckloads of peeled garlic07:11
poboy975linuxok I have two devices that show when I run this command ls /dev/disk/by-uuid/ -al....sdb1 and sdb2....they should be two extra hard drives, that are installed but gparted isnt  seeing them07:12
nsadminwhitedox: so you have an existing installation?07:12
duhengarett right click on another panel and click on add panel07:12
rwwgarrett: right-click a remaining panel, click "New Panel", configure the new panel.07:12
whitedoxnsadmin: yes07:13

nsadminwhitedox ok are you running it now?07:13

nsadminsda1 is, yes07:14
ubuntu_is there any implementation of the sudden motion sensor in Macs for hard drive protection in Ubuntu?07:14
Kruxerflajann, does it have all the dependencies?07:15

KruxerFlannel, ^^07:15
_Cidubuntu_: humm..if there is, I would think it would be part of the mactel project, might want to check that07:15
whitedoxnsadmin, well this PC only has 1 harddrive. lol.07:15
FlannelKruxer: yes07:15
nsadminwhitedox: oh, ok...07:15

Kruxerthanx :)07:15
ryanCHwhat package would "xine" be under?07:16
whitedoxnsadmin, Is it possible other things could be listed there as well? I mean, there is other stuff there, but they all had things listed that are not even filesystems...07:16
sparris there a way to make usb storage devices automatically mount, instead of having to use the launcher to open them in dolphin?07:17
dr_willisI hate when file manager windows auto popup when ya plug in a device. :)07:17
_CidFlannel:  most of it is, I run a ubuntu-server on a mini mac, plain out rocks :-)07:17
garrett_okay guys, I loaded the new panel but I cant figure out how to configure it to have programs minimize to it. how do i do it07:18
duhengarrett_ use add to panel07:18
duhenor sth like it07:18
sparrdr_willis: ditto07:19

davitHello, I instslled ubuntu using Wubi on one of my partitions and was wondering how to conver to to full ubuntu07:23
onefiftyone_rumis their a way i can upgrade from 5.10 to 8.* ??07:24
yogandraI am listening song online from browser opera. Can anyone tell me where those files are store locally?07:24
nsadminyou should probably upgrade one step at a time07:24
davitnsadmin: what you mean?07:24
onefiftyone_rumup[grade one step at a time??07:24
onefiftyone_rumcould you please elaborate that for me?07:24
nickrudonefiftyone_rum, you'd be far better off doing a reinstall; much less chance of breakage, much less downloading vs. going through every release07:24
onefiftyone_rumwell every time i try installing 8.10 it doesnt load up07:25
Flannelonefiftyone_rum: you'd upgrade from 5.10 to 6.06, then from 6.06 to 8.0407:25

onefiftyone_rumit just sits their with a blank screen07:25

onefiftyone_rumi see07:25
davitnsadmin: what would happen if i partitioned the partition with windows on it07:25
onefiftyone_rumwell how about just going from 5.10 to 6.06?07:25
Flannelonefiftyone_rum: 6.06 to 8.04 will go off without a hitch, 5.10 to 6.06 may require some light massaging.07:25
=== damo is now known as blackegde
onefiftyone_rumwell, prolly not worth it then07:26
Flannelonefiftyone_rum: Its not the end of the world, its actually relatively easy.  And please, watch your language.07:26

nsadminany idea why?07:27
Flannelonefiftyone_rum: To do it, your best bet is to go the manual route; you need to first upgrade to "uptodate" 5.10.  You can get those repos by moving you stuff to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade07:27

onefiftyone_rumi was hoping i could download it all in an iso image07:28
bakermdIs there a way to create a custom install for Ubuntu? i.e. specify a specific list of packages to be installed?  Ideally I would run something that inventories the installed packages and creates some sort of Kick Start file for the installation - Any ideas?07:28
onefiftyone_rumand do it from the cd drive on the lappy07:28
onefiftyone_rumdavit: i have tried many flavors but not slax yet07:28
Flannelonefiftyone_rum: once you've done that (and rebooted to get the new kernel), make sure you have your appropriate metapackages: ubuntu-standard, ubuntu-minimal, ubuntu-desktop (or kubuntu, whatever), and a proper kernel metapackage (linux-image-686-smp would be one example)07:28
onefiftyone_rumdavit: i might give it a try07:28

blackegde when i load my ubuntu i have several ubuntu`s to choice from. how do i delete my old ubuntus?07:29
Flannelonefiftyone_rum: Then once you've made sure you've got that, move your sources from breezy to dapper, sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.  Once it's done, reboot, you're on dapper.  You can then use the instructions on the page ubottu is going to give you to go from 6.06 to 8.04 (and I suggest sticking with 8.04, LTS releases seem like they agree with your schedule)07:30

ElTimohow do I change the amount of video ram being used by an integrated graphics card08:00
duheni recommend ext3 partitoni08:01
ElTimoduhen: reiserfs is incredibly fragile08:01
davitduhen: it only lets me use as primary partition is that ok08:01
caiotorminwhen I try to install, after the loading (orange bar) there was a black screen with the white cursor totally freezed/distorted08:02

caiotorminIraimbilanja, even my ubuntu has not been installed?08:03
IraimbilanjaYeah, still it's one way to go about diagnosing the problem.08:04
gizmocan anyone help me on this..or should i install virtualbox08:04
davitduhen: ok done :) now lemme try to reboot lol08:04
davitif all goes well ill be back08:04
caiotorminright.. sorry but i'm very noob on it.. how can I access the console Iraimbilanja?08:04
Iraimbilanjacaiotormin, try Ctrl-Alt-Backspace at the distorted screen. It kills X so you get the console, hopefully.08:05
onefiftyone_rumwhere do i put the codec files for mplayer @ on ubuntu 5.10???08:05
savvascoj: isn't modified time the same as created time?08:05
caiotorminIraimbilanja, I've seen this tip before, but when the screen is distorted, any command works :/08:07
caiotormincan I try this before?08:07
frybyecan sbdy tell me why I cant find flashplugin-unfree since yesterday...???08:07

Iraimbilanjacaiotormin, you mean NO command works?08:07

frybyeah ha - part of restricted metapackage or...?08:08
caiotorminbtw sorry for my bad english08:08
rainabbaI'm running hardy on LVM, on Linux Software RAID. What'd the best way to make a backup which I'd be able to restore later on dissimilar storage (or the same)?08:08
savvasfrybye: flashplugin-nonfree08:09
savvasnot unfree08:09
Iraimbilanjacaiotormin, Then reboot, and at the first Ubuntu menu, look at the options. I believe there may be stuff like "safe mode", or "select videomode" (somewhere at the bottom). For the latter, try a few different videomodes08:09
caiotorminsometimes as I try with 'noapci nolapic', it shows a colored screen, changing the collors08:10
cojsavvas: nope, not under windows anyway08:10
caiotormintottaly distorted08:10
Iraimbilanjacaiotormin, Also just in case, from the same menu, run "check cd integrity" AND "memory test"08:10
DefamedPrawnis there any way I can pump the amount of volume available from pulseaudio? It's a bit quiet on this Intel Imac.08:10

onefiftyone_rumhow do i get permission?08:10
Flannelonefiftyone_rum: You need to use sudo08:10
onefiftyone_rumfor everything?08:11
IraimbilanjaDefamedPrawn, in your volumecontrol/mixer, there's a crapload of interrelated channels you can adjust, not just one. Try and crank them all up08:11

davithey back08:11
duhenis it ok?08:11
davitnot totally08:11
Flannelonefiftyone_rum: If you're just starting out, I strongly suggest you upgrade to a newer version.  8.04 is ... a long way from even 6.06 (which was a large improvement over 5.10)08:11
savvascoj: windows is windows.. linux is linux :) the last time it was modified gives you the last time a file was created/changed08:11
caiotorminIraimbilanja, I tried this, memory and CD was OK.. so, do you know some cheatcode to put on boot line? I tried also xforcevesa08:11
Iraimbilanjaonefiftyone_rum, why the hell 5.10? this was 3 years ago08:12
duhenwhat problem08:12

DefamedPrawnIraimbilanja already looked. Only ones that seem to have any effect are Master, PCM, and Front. Is there no conf file anywhere I can just edit to make it louder?08:12
onefiftyone_rum5.10 is the only one that will run on my laptop08:12
FlannelIraimbilanja: That tone isn't really necessary.08:12

cojsavvas: yeah i'm just saying that it's an idea that linux could use (and would be usefult o many people)08:12
onefiftyone_rumno i havemnt08:12
Flannelonefiftyone_rum: Alright, lets upgrade you to at least 6.06 then.  Did you check the integrity of the 8.10 CD? or 8.04?08:12
cojjust because windows has it doesn't mean it's bad08:12
onefiftyone_rumyeah, the integrity check was good08:13

onefiftyone_rumhdmount: lol08:14
Flannelonefiftyone_rum: Ok, so, to move over to old-releases, you'll need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list, since its a system file, we'll have to use sudo.  hit alt-f2 to open a run dialog, then type `gksu "gedit /etc/apt/sources.list"` (without the ``, but with the "") hit enter, you'll get a text editor (after typing your password)08:14

onefiftyone_ruma partition manager08:41
FlannelBarnose: It's a partition editor.  It may be listed in your menus as "Gnome Partition Editor"08:41
onefiftyone_ruma very nice one imo08:41
BarnoseFlannel, Oh I'm sorry .. i will be using windows xp to do this... shouldn't matter, should it? I will be using partition manager 3.0 ultimate or something....08:42

I have 160gb drive now full08:45
gharzdns53: i didn't change anything since it has been installed... how do i fix the keys?08:45
dns53df gives disk free in the partition08:45
gharzdns53: i remember last time there's a site in ubuntu wherein i can generate my sources.list and instructions on how to get the gpg keys08:46
dns53gharz reinstall the package ubuntu-keyring08:46
FlannelBarnose: #ubuntu-offtopic would be the place to ask stuff like this in the future.  But, just install the hard drive (power is off), then fire up the liveCD first, clear it, then reboot off the windows harddrive.08:46
dns53gharz i think the gui system > administration > software sources should allow you to reset to the original ones08:47
gharzdns53: i ran dpkg-reconfigure ubuntu-keyring and the message was "Automatic..." not changed08:47
gharzdns53: and by 99% i'm getting a message saying bzip2: Data integrity error when decompressing ... blah blah08:48

diskmountsshould there be space preceeding or leave it at 008:53
Dexiwuz7362, oh thanks08:53
Son_of_Demetriusmedibuntu...my typing still sux so bad :(08:53
diskmountand should it be ext3 or something different08:53
diskmountthis is for my empty sdb drive08:54
Flanneldiskmount: ext3 will be good08:54
jack_When I try to open vlc it says this, what does it mean? vlc: ../../src/xcb_lock.c:33: _XCBUnlockDisplay: Assertion `xcb_get_request_sent(dpy->xcb->connection) == dpy->request' failed.08:54
TulgaI have 4 servers and I want configure them like 2 big fast computers. then if one big down, run another big. is it clustering? or something other?08:55
diskmountFlannel ok so that is step on, ext3, next what to I do about space preceeding08:55
Dexiwuz7362, turns out its actually a bin and a cue08:55
FuLioHOw do i enable compiz fusion?08:55
Flanneldiskmount: What?  Oh, just format the whole drive as one big ext3 partition08:55
zeekwhy isnt any one in Debian room?08:55
DexiFuLio, do you have it installed yet?08:55
wuz7362Dexi: then you have to convert it to iso. don't know how to do that.08:55

gharzdns53: i'm still getting this error => W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/intrepid-security/main/binary-i386/Packages.bz2  Hash Sum mismatch08:56
FuLioDexi, yes i do, just like after i did this update it messed up everything and now i just need to enable it, just dont remember the commmand08:56
wuz7362Dexi: bin/cue is not a filesystem, so it cannot be mounted08:56
diskmountFlannel since sda is primary should sdb be extended08:56
gharzchanged the repository to server to main instead of my current location08:56
Flanneldiskmount: No, that has to do with the drives themselves.  You're making sdb1, and it'll be primary as well.08:56
Dexiwuz7362, arent there programs that trick it into thinking its a CD?08:56
diskmountFlannel, thanks for spending some time helping me08:57
Flanneldiskmount: No problem.  That's what we're here for08:57
DexiFuLio, one second08:57
FuLioDexi, ohk08:57
wuz7362Dexi: afaik no. look for some convert to iso tool, i don't know the name08:57
jack_Does anyone know the answer to my problem I mentioned above?08:57
DexiFuLio, do you have the compiz settings in System > Prefs > whateveritscalled?08:58
jack_When I try to open vlc it says this, what does it mean? vlc: ../../src/xcb_lock.c:33: _XCBUnlockDisplay: Assertion `xcb_get_request_sent(dpy->xcb->connection) == dpy->request' failed.08:58

micro01what is the easiest one09:00

diskmountFlannel because I wanted to play with the music production stuff09:01
micro01jack can u msg me09:01
dr_willismicro01,  it just takes   a little effort to read and start 'thinking' and  getting away from the Bad habbits that MS has trained people in.09:01
Flanneldiskmount: Are you doing it in real time? or batch type stuff (editing a sound file, etc)?09:01
FuLioDexi, Btw like earlier i got this update, so i updated it and it messed up my screen resolution and my cf so thats whyi was asking =\09:01
diskmountFlannel, butnow I just care about the video and picture editing09:01
diskmountFlanel, I will not have time for many months to play with the music software anyway09:02
kj4hy you fakers09:02
Flanneldiskmount: Right, the video editing: is that like streaming stuff? (from the camera through your computer out to people watching?) or where you open up a saved movie file, make changes/whatever, then save it again?09:02
kj4heloo all09:02
gharzi don't want to reinstall my system again... please help regarding the hash sum mismatch09:02
DexiFuLio, something messed up my screen refresh rate... i think it was compiz09:03
Flannelkj4: We don't suggest you IRC drunk.  You may consider signing off for the night and doing something else.09:03
diskmountFlannel, the latter, editing and sharing stuff by uploading09:03
FuLioDexi, i just did compiz --replace, something is wrong -.-09:03
diskmountFlannel no shoutcast servers or live streams09:03
DexiFuLio, sorry i dont know09:03
Flanneldiskmount: alright, you don't really need the -rt kernel.  I'd suggest removing linux-rt and installing linux-generic09:04
kj4Flannel, thanks09:04
diskmountFlannel is there a way to do that without destroying everything I have done so far09:04
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about macro09:04
Son_of_DemetriusLet me try and simplify things for myself..how do I inpack a .deb file in Ubuntu 8.10...does it contain a native program to do that?...I installed it very recently...do I need to load the live CD again to open these blank icon files that have a .deb extension?09:04
diskmountFlannel, is it as simple as dl the reg kernel with synaptic09:04
Dexi!refresh rate09:04
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about refresh rate09:04
Flanneldiskmount: Oh, it won't destroy anything.  Just open up synaptic, remove the linux-image package, and install the linux-generic package.09:04
Dexiubottu, youre no help!09:04
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about youre no help!09:04
Flanneldiskmount: Mmmm, let me... double check the package names.  Do install linux-generic though.  It's just that you may need to remove some more -rt packages.09:05
Flannel!fishing | Dexi09:05
ubottuDexi: Please investigate with me only with "/msg ubottu Bot" or in #ubuntu-bots.  Search for factoids with "/msg ubottu !search factoid".09:05
diskmountFlannel, I need to backtrack a second, I did the gparted thing, but I never was prompted to pick an instal point and I do not see a mount prompt09:05
diskmountFlannel, thanks09:06
Flanneldiskmount: right.  Your drive is now partitioned, and just sitting there.  You'll manually edit your fstab to add it to your filesystem.09:06
Flanneldiskmount: the packages to remove: linux-rt, linux-image-rt, linux-restricted-modules-rt.  Don't remove anything that looks like that but has numbers in it (like linux-image-2.6.27-3-rt)09:07
ProbelemAnyone have any idea why Cairo-Dock won;t update?09:07
gharzdns53: how do i get a key from ubuntu? i've restored my sources.list back up and i'm getting this error now... => W: GPG error: http://archive.ubuntu.com intrepid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 40976EAF437D05B509:07
diskmountFlannel can I remove those before I instal a new kernell?09:08
ProbelemI've got an update reminder in taskbar and it keeps saying update availiable.09:08
Flanneldiskmount: You can do them both at the same time, actually.  Those are just metapackages, they won't actually touch the installed kernels.09:08
dns53gharz well the way i know is install ubuntu-keyring, there are probably better ways of verifying it, that is a warning not an error09:09
eweb100Can somone help me with compiz? The settings don't do anything.09:10
ProbelemHave you turned on 3d capabilities?09:10
dns53gharz the apt-key util handles this, apt-key netupdate,  though i have never done this09:11
downstreammicro01: PING09:11
gharzdns53: ok thanks so much...09:11
eweb100problem, ummm?09:11
eweb100everyone, no but i do have a graphics card driver that works09:11
sony_boywhere in the file system is my webcam located?09:11
diskmountso Flannel, what do I want to replace those with09:12
Flanneldiskmount: Hmm? Oh, install linux-generic09:12
Probelemeweb100 - Go System>Preferences>Appearance09:12
wardolbive never messed with that stuff look pretty cool though09:12
gharzdns53: apt-key net-update didn't work :(09:12
ProbelemThen go to Visual Effects09:12
dns53gharz should i export mine and send it to you?09:13
diskmountok Flannel, with it it is going to instal some kernels with numbers after them, will they cancel out the rt ones with numbers after them that are not marked for uninstal?09:13
Dexiwhats the chmod command to make something executable09:13
Flanneldiskmount: Right.  Those packages are the actual kernels for -generic.  No, they won't touch the other packages.09:13
FlannelDexi: chmod +x foo09:13
dns53gharz what does apt-key list show?09:14
Dexifoo=file im assuming09:14
diskmountso I will just have 2 diff sets of kernels Flannel?09:14
Flanneldiskmount: Indeed.  Two different types of kernels.09:14
diskmountFlannel, where will I be able to decide which one to use?09:15
Flanneldiskmount: Although, since we removed the -rt metapackages, you won't get updates for -rt anymore, just -generic.  And once you've rebooted to -generic you can remove the -rt kernels if you want.09:15
DefamedPrawnthat's funny. Every time I try and launch gnusound, x restarts.09:15
Flanneldiskmount: When you boot at your GRUB menu you choose (just like between version number differences currently)09:15
diskmountFlannel, cool, it is prompting me to restart, but before I do, do you think you could walk me through the terminal (scary) so that I can have my newly partitioned sdb mounted?09:16
sony_boywhats the easiest way to caputure a picture with my webcam in ubuntu?09:17
sony_boyin windows i can do it with explorer09:17
DexiFlannel, ugh, i cant get this... i have a bunch of .dat files and a file with no extension, idk how to make it run09:17
Flanneldiskmount: You can actually restart whenever you'd like.  But the new kernel wont come into effect until then.  You'll be editing fstab, it's not *that* scary.  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab  has a good deal of information on the subject.09:17
FlannelDexi: Remember for stuff in the current directory, you need to expliticly state a relative (or full, I suppose) path: ./filename09:18
gharzsony_boy: speaking about webcam.. my laptop has inbuilt webcam and i haven't used it since i used ubuntu.. what software are you using to use it? can u use with with yahoo chat?09:18

DexiFlannel, no output09:19
FlannelDexi: Then the file ran.09:19
gharzsony_boy: thanks for the info! i'll try that.09:19

FlannelDexi: Those are errors inside the script.  You'll... have to consult whomever wrote the script09:21
DexiFlannel, dangit09:21
dr_willisFuLio,  its proberly sayind    dpkg --configure -a  with a space.. or somthing similer.. you need to proberly run the command it suggests with 'sudo  Whatever-it-suggestes'09:21
FuLioalright thanky you09:22
vjacobhello all. after booting with my new kernel, I get fuss over not having map, and boot not being able to find certain files09:22
KazurikHello, I don't know if this is the right place to ask this but does anyone know when the ubuntuforums will be comming back up? I am having a hard time with my wireless card09:22
vjacobis there something one should ALWAYS do after doing make install; make modules_install?09:22
Flanneldiskmount: each line in fstab consists of a few  things: device (thats the drive), mount point (thats where it lives in the filesystem, where to put it), and then some bookkeeping stuff.  so you'll edit it and tell it to mount that partition at /media/home (although, personally, I'd call it storage or something, calling it 'home' may cause confusion)09:23
FlannelKazurik: try #ubuntuforums09:23
Kazurikah ha, thanks09:23

herrasorry, rename admin herra09:26

Flannelherra: you're going from herra to admin or the other way around? use mv instead.09:26
Flannelherra: mv admin herra09:26
rwwmontgomery_x: The minimum system requirements for Ubuntu include "300 MHz x86 processor". The 486 can only get up to 100MHz. Even if you do find this mythical button, you'll be unable to install Ubuntu :(09:26
dns53herra there is no rename command, instead you move it to a different name09:26
herraok thanks09:26

rwwmontgomery_x: That said, is there a genuine support question we can help you with today?09:27
herrawell Ive got a perl rename script on here09:27
herrabut doesnt seem to do owt09:27
Flannelherra: And then you'll need to use usermod -d to move where the world thinks your homedir is, too.09:27
Flannelherra: right, rename uses a regular expression to rename.09:27
herradon't undertsand that one flannnel?09:27
herrausermod -d ?09:28
diskmountFlannel, it says the mount poiint is already there in my /media/home09:28
Flannelherra: Don't worry about it.  Just use mv.  Oh, yes.  usermod -d /home/herra herra09:28
Morchuboodrtroll: you need to edit /etc/resolv as sudo, you can put your search domains there.09:28
Flannelherra: That tells the system to look for herras homedir in /home/herra, instead of /home/admin09:28

JHook101O I am looking for a channel that supports video game use on ubuntu unless someone can tell me if I can play world of warcraft or steam counter strike09:45
KazurikJHook101 you may want to look into a program called WINE. I know it will let you play World of Warcraft in linux09:45

vltHello. I just upgraded the packages "libssl0.9.8" and "openssl". Why does usn say "After a standard system upgrade you need to reboot your computer to effect the necessary changes"? Is this really necessary?09:47
rwwgh0st: no problem. FYI, apt-get will warn you about unauthenticated packages when you use PPAs; read the warning then decide whether or not you trust what is, essentially, packages made by some random person :)09:47
jack_JHook101, that is why I mentioned stupid questions as a tease, because you was asking about something that is already on you system :p09:47

jack_JHook101, Yes open office can read MS Office files, just not Office 2007 files.09:48
jack_Well wait that is wrong09:48
savvasrebel_kid: opera and firefox probably09:49
jack_it can read 2007 files, it just cannot write them09:49

Flanneldiskmount: It'll look like this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/103081/10:21
Dr_futureit has.pl extension10:21
diskmountFlannel, I did, but the only thing is your line is shorter and where all the other lines end in 2 numbers, your 2 numbers end way before the other rows last columns10:21
dns53Dr_future cd to the dir and run ./app10:21
Flanneldiskmount: That merely has to do with spaces versus tabs.  If you want you can space it out to match the others, but it's not important10:21
Dr_futuredns53 : I extracted that folder on the desktop, its name is vmtools10:22
diskmountFlannel now do I save?10:22
Flanneldiskmount: yep10:22
Flanneldiskmount: Then close, then go to a terminal and type `sudo mount -a`10:22
dns53Dr_future well cd ~/Desktop10:22
Dr_futureok dns53, I'm going to try this10:22
Flanneldiskmount: That will remount everything according to your fstab (including the new drive)10:22

sh1how can i download pidgin using apt-get10:26
coji couldn't get my port open but it seems to be related to my ISP's stupid policies and proxy10:26
rwwsh1: "sudo apt-get install pidgin"; if you're using a default Ubuntu install, it's already installed in Applications > Internet > Pidgin Instant Messenger10:26
gh0stcoj, they block even non-standard ports like that?10:27
Flanneldiskmount: Hmmm, that's odd.  Ok, pastebin your fstab (cat /etc/fstab) again please.10:27
Dr_futuredns53 : Could I private you please?10:27
dns53Dr_future why not10:27

S[h]O[r]Tim having a really problem installing mysql-server on a fresh hardy server i keep getting Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)10:30
Flanneldiskmount: huh.  Well, that *is* interesting.  Ooooh.  We just reformatted this disk, yes?  It could be that the /dev/disk/by-uuid/ is only generated at boot.. even if that sounds sort of stupid.  (Actually, there's probably some command we can do to make it re-generate, but I don't know it).10:30
Flanneldiskmount: Go ahead and reboot, we need to do it for your kernel anyway.  Once you reboot, that drive should be there.  If not, we can use the old-style of naming stuff for fstab.  But it ought to work.10:31
diskmountFlannel what ever you think, I have no clue what I am doing10:31
ProbelemAnyone have any idea why Cairo-dock won't update?  I'm sick of this update icon in the taskbar.10:31
diskmountok brb Flannel10:31
rwwFlannel: why don't you just use the /dev/sdwhatever notation instead of a UUID for now?10:31
IllusionHello, I have restored mysql databases in /var/lib/mysql. But all databaes have root permissions, how can I change the owner to mysql?10:32
Flannelrww: Because he has to reboot for a kernel update anyway, and there's no real reason to change it twice more.10:32
ProbelemIt says E: /var/cache/apt/archives/cairo-dock_1.6.3.1_all.deb: trying to overwrite `/usr/share/cairo-dock/icon-mouse.png', which is also in package cairo-dock-data10:33
rwwProbelem: Do you have an unofficial cairo repository active?10:33
ProbelemI don't believe so, I downloaded cairo-dock from the ubuntu repos.10:34
JHook101So as far as security goes would you say linux by far is way more encrypted then windows?10:34
raevolcould someone help me troubleshoot getting my sound working? i've tried whats on the wiki with no luck10:35
new-userHello channel,10:35
JHook101how old is yoru computer10:35
raevoli'm sure it's a simple configuration thing, I installed xubuntu kind of backwards, just not knowledgable enough to troubleshoot it myself10:35
JHook101and are you using on board sound or a sound card10:36
raevolmine? just put a new mobo in, asus p5q se plus, onboard sound10:36
Digital7does anyone know what's up with the update servers (and the rest of the internet) right now? is it because of windows7 distribution?10:36
raevolit's VIA HD Audio if that helps10:36
ProbelemIt says NOT AUTHENTICATED when i go to update it.10:36
JHook101ok well i do not know much about linux yet but I would look into making sure there is no conflictions10:36
mountdiskFlannel, it showed up right by the dvd drive and cd drive10:37
JHook101same thing happen to my video card it said it does not support it but gave me a option to enable it and download the proper drivers10:37
raevollike... irq conflicts? it works in windows10:37
Flannelmountdisk: sounds good.10:37
mountdiskFlannel, but how the heck to I give it network sharing10:37
rwwProbelem: That would be a reasonably-good indicator that you're using non-Ubuntu repositories. Can you open your /etc/apt/sources.list file, copy it to http://paste.ubuntu.com/ and give me a link to the pastebin page you create, please?10:37
Probelemraevol, have you tried running alsamixer in the terminal?10:37
Flannelmountdisk: Er..... What sort of network?10:37
raevolJHook101, that's the proprietary drivers, that's supposed to happen10:37
raevolProbelem, yes, there's only master and pcm listed, but both are max10:37
Flannelmountdisk: with windows computers? or all OSX/linux?10:37
rwwDigital7: The update servers and general internet work fine for me :/10:37
