Dr_Willisbalzac,  check  that you are using the latest kernel? try latest update/upgrades, check forums for others with similer issue?00:04

athanreally tarded lol00:08
Odd-rationalejmd9qs: did you start tor already? (sudo /etc/init.d/tor restart) also, try the FoxyProxy ff extension... you actually don't realy need privoxy, unless you want it...00:08
tekteenathan: what do you mean update the url?00:08
n8tuser2balzac -> do you wish to answer my questions or you are off to something else?00:08

balzacotherwise, I don't know how to tell  if a specific is loaded.00:09

jmd9qsthe proxy is pointed to port 811800:10
n8tuser2or you are just bluffing?00:10
balzacn8tuser2: please just tell me the command00:10
arakthorbalzac: I am not 100% sure, but I believe modprobe -l lists loaded modules00:10
soothterm_: I've never installed vidalia before so I probably can't help you. If you want someone to help you I suggest stating exactly what errors you are getting. You need to provide more context of the error message (i.e. the preceding lines) [not in the channel, use a pastebin]00:10
athanhmm, i might just have to re-install ubuntu 8.10, cuz firefox worked before00:10
Odd-rationalejmd9qs: ok. so make sure privoxy is running too, then (sudo /etc/init.d/privoxy restart) and did you enable forwardin for prixoxy to tor?00:10
n8tuser2balzac -> i would not be telling you the exact command, but I will give you hints,   man moprobe, man lsmod00:10
Slartathan: that sounds a bit overkill00:11
neetoathan: it's not a problem with ubuntu. you can find the option in about:config00:11
balzacn8tuser2: I did use modprobe and didn't find my driver00:11
soothterm_: What features of the GUI do you need?00:11
balzacI'll try those00:11
n8tuser2balzac -> what was your exact command?00:11
athanyeah, i have a fresh install tho00:11

n8tuser2balzac -> its a good time you hit the manual pages,  man modprobe and man lsmod00:12
balzacOk, I will00:12
Odd-rationalejmd9qs: pastebin your privoxy config file.. i think it is in /etc/privoxy/config or somthing...00:12

ldiamondbalzac, this has nothing to do with microsoft... intel just dont develop drivers for linux... because linux is not a big enough share for them...00:18
Slartneeto: if you want more options when moving files you can often use rsync instead of cp/mv..00:18

soothterm_: Did you do the steps for adding the repositories from the link I sent you? (Starts with "Open up System->Preferences") [You only need to do that step right now.]00:26
term_sooth: Yes i did add them00:27
soothterm_: What does "sudo apt-get install vidalia" give?00:27

Odd-rationalejmd9qs: let's try this... try disabling/uninstalling that one you are using. stop both privoxy and tor (sudo /etc/init.d/tor stop; sudo /etc/init.d/privoxy stop). try using the FoxyProxy addon. restart firefox, and FoxyProxy should have a wizard to guide you through setting up tor...00:38
redvamp128Actually found a site with some nifty tools for Compiz Forlong's Blog - Compiz-Check <http://forlong.blogage.de/entries/pages/Compiz-Check>00:38
soothterm_: It would have been better to not have installed tor from sources.00:38
jmd9qsOdd-rationale, ok i'll get back to you in a sec00:38
iframemerril: i'm having also a lot of problems with f10, as never before...00:38
term_sooth: why not?00:38
Odd-rationalejmd9qs: and in the wizard setup, select toe default, which is to use tor WITHOUT provixy.00:38
redvamp128There is the handy tool for turning it on and off at the click as well as some commands to add a more detailed Advanced Desktop Effect Settings menu..00:39
redvamp128The Cube is cool00:39
mikevankuikThe Cube rulez :D00:39
merrilwhat's the sudo command in terminal for Files and Settings Transfer Wizard?00:39
redvamp128Though the only thing I don't like is that my Top Bar Dissapears00:40
neetoyou can apparently make the cube a SPHERE in the current beta version of compiz00:40
josher4I forgot, how do you get the cube again?00:40
redvamp128But everything can be managed through the taskbar00:40
ubottuCompiz-Fusion (and the older Compiz and Beryl) are window managers that employ the "composite" extension of X to draw windows using graphics cards' 3D hardware. They can additionally provide "desktop special effects" (such as the "cube") by means of plug-ins. Join #compiz-fusion for help and support with advanced features.

LightTitanmy java based programs seem to be having problems. I am running Ubuntu 8.10 64bit. Is there a way to purge my java and reinstall it with default configs?00:40
redvamp128check out this site00:40
Gneamerril: that's for Ubuntu or Fedora?00:40
soothterm_: I'm guessing the vidalia package specifies the exact version of tor it needs and will try to install it from the deb package. You may have the wrong version of tor and/or two different installed versions.00:40

mikevankuikOdd-rationale: you know a Virtual Machine like thingy for Ubuntu? where I could install Windows XP on? (need it :( IE is still the leading browser so I need to check if that peace of shit browser understands what I code :()00:40
SlartLightTitan: what kind of problems?00:40
Odd-rationalemikevankuik: virtualbox is my favorite00:40
ubottuThere are several solutions for running other operating systems (or their programs) inside Ubuntu, while using the native CPU as much as possible: !QEmu (with !KQemu), !VirtualBox, !VMWare, as well as !WINE and !Cedega for Windows applications00:41
LightTitanlike not starting. When I try to run Limewire it hangs on the loading screen00:41
SlartLightTitan: my azureus is acting all laggy and slow.. I'm on 64 bit ubuntu too00:41
redvamp128He has all kinds of tools as well as examples of how to configure the cube to run00:41
crabgrasswhere do i put custom login screens?00:41
LightTitanMine doesn't get past loading screen00:41
LightTitanand it used to00:41
SlartLightTitan: well.. you could always purge the sun java jre and reinstall it00:41
mikevankuikOdd-rationale: cool t I'll have a look at it as soon as I have a change :)00:41
Dr_WillisLightTitan,  run it from a terminal. look for error messages..   be sure you areusing the sun java, also. not the other java variants00:41
VideoSmithHey guys, Konversation ain't a bad IRC client :P00:41

dmulhollandhey, I'm getting a strange error, anytime I launch firefox the window manager does nothing to it, it just launches full screen with no windows bar (all other windows work ok including thunderbird)00:42
SlartVideoSmith: have we said it is?00:42
LightTitanya I have thought about installing 32 bit again... but everything is done and it's ALOT of work to redo it all00:42
redvamp128Josher4 check out this site Forlong's Blog - I'm trying to comprehend the things I write <http://forlong.blogage.de/en>00:42
Odd-rationaledmulholland: is it on full screen? try F1100:42
LightTitanok thanks for the tips guys, I will try it all00:42
VideoSmithSlart:  No :P00:42
AJ_Z0No combination of 64 bit and 32 (mainly for web browser plugin) worked for me. YMMV00:42
Dr_WillisLightTitan,  i belive that program works fine on my 64bit systems00:42
redvamp128I have the handy tool for turning compiz on and off as well as his blog explains how to get the Advanced menu installed as well as how to configure the cube to run00:43
LightTitanok, prolly something with my java, gonna run it from Term00:43
SlartVideoSmith: =).. then I'll counter with.. quassel isn't half bad either00:43
Dr_WillisI cant recall any 64bit issues on my 2 bit ubuntu machines.00:43
AJ_Z0LightTitan: I took the opportunity to install from the Alt CD and use full disk encryption00:43
VideoSmithSlart:  Never heard of quassel.00:43
soothterm_: Removing packages installed from source is difficult. I would try installing tor again from source and looking at the output for the files it creates. Delete those files, uninstall the tor package, uninstall the vidalia package and then try reinstalling the vidalia package. It should install tor automatically.00:43
redvamp128anyone else ever had the issue of the tittlebars dissapearing under compiz?00:43
dmulhollandOdd-rationale: nope, not full screen, happens everytime i launch the application00:43
LightTitanI do get an error when running from term. The following00:44

SlartVideoSmith: it's pretty new.. it runs a irc core thingy that you can connect to with a client.. like using irssi in screen..00:44
Odd-rationaledmulholland: what window manager?00:44
soothterm_: If that doesn't work I would try #vidalia or posting to the launchpad "answers" section or the ubuntu forums.00:44

bacterjosher4 do you use the K3b02:38
Ryan_DelaneySealedWithAKiss: It is not possible to mount an NTFS partition that is marked as in use except with the force option, so yes, the disk mounter and fstab will not mount "in use" partitions. If this is the cause of your problem -- and I can't say for sure from here -- then shutting down properly should resolve it.02:38

ErnieDuglasI LOVE UBUNTU !02:50
Ryan_DelaneyErnieDuglas: High five :)02:50
vocxbpat1434, well, which source did you download? It may be not the same source as the one included in the Ubuntu repos, you know.02:50
Flannelcmv583: Posting google queries of someone's question is certainly not helpful.02:51
ErnieDuglasXubuntu is nice too, but it can't do CompizFusion + Emerald skins as easy02:51
bpat1434vocx: true... doesn't matter now. I upgraded wxwidgets to 2.8.9 and it's still failing to load02:51
cornellThen lists three lines.  I added them, ran upgrade manager.  It failed on a bunch of 404's.  Should the lines have been added, or should they replace the others.02:51
ErnieDuglasoh for sure high five02:51
Flannelcornell: Replace the others02:51
vocxbpat1434, run it from the terminal, see what it spits out.02:51
KenBW2how would i go about using ssh -g (-g      Allows remote hosts to connect to local forwarded ports.)02:51
cmv583Flannel: that's a stepp i was told to do 2 days ago when i started asking for help, didn't think it would be a big deal, wasn't to me02:51
cornellShould I not be using help.ubuntu.com?02:51
Flannelcornell: The 404s you get are likely from the old ones still.02:52
cornellThanks Flannel02:52
bpat1434vocx: nothing spits out... just a blinking []02:52
Flannelcmv583: Well, I apologise for whomever did it to you the other day, but that's not how things go in this channel.  It's dangerous and moreover, rude.02:52
ErnieDuglasssh is hard!02:52
Jack_Sparrowcornell, Not old expired links02:52
ErnieDuglasthey need a noob guide to ssh and using with FTP and other in Linux02:52

ErnieDuglasnvidia comes ON some mobos now02:53
cornellKinda figured, but didn't wan tot trash the desktop.  So get rid of all the others or just the ones that correspond, i.e. feisty, feisty-updates and feisty-security.02:53
vocxbpat1434, then restart the X server, that is log out and back in.02:53
Y-Townanyone know a good GUI file sync app?02:53
ErnieDuglasthis puter I just setup was only $250 US02:53
ErnieDuglasruns all this like a champ02:53
bpat1434vocx... okay02:53
cornellWell, Jack_Sparrow, I got there from the update to 8.10 page, didn't think that'd be old and expired.02:54
ErnieDuglasmy work is interested too --- looking to fund what I can.02:54
FlannelErnieDuglas: If you install openssh-server, you've got ssh working (assuming proper port forwards).  If you point your ftp clients at your box with the ssh server, and choose "sftp" instead of ftp, you'll be able to then connect, without anything else.02:54
ErnieDuglasfor dev02:54
keresdoes anyone know how to start python glade?02:54
ErnieDuglasI want stuff that runs on MacOS too though ideal. I know I know it's apples & oranges but still02:54

ErnieDuglasits very nice mac is coming with us.02:55

quaalcould someone assist me with setting samba permissions so that when i save a file from the samba client to the samba server, the samba server has complete permissions to the file? i have already tried setting the create mask in smb.conf to 0777. it does nothing02:55
lar50nif i changed the screen resolu in ibex and made my menus inaccessible by mouse, how could change it back?02:56
vocxjoejc, nope, sorry. Although I would advice against VIA. Stay with Intel, Ati and nVidia, if you must.02:56
ErnieDuglasquaal >> when you are running the cmd, who is launching it?02:56
quaali still get a -rwx-w---- file in a drwxrwsrwx directory02:56
quaalErnieDuglas, i'm saving the file to the samba share with firefox. so i assume my client user is running it02:56
fuzeboxsoftwarecan someone tell me why my printer works sometimes and sometimes it don't ?02:56
ErnieDuglasquaal > i.e. you may want to try cmd with different user, or even in a batch ? or cron? when is it running?02:56
ErnieDuglasquaal >> with FF? hmmmmm not sure about that. They should try native interface id say02:57
cornellGonna try again, if I don't get back to y'all... thank you02:57

puneeth.deb packes are not installing in ubuntu..!02:59
ErnieDuglastell them to use nautilus to trans your files not thru FF02:59
Jack_Sparrowpuneeth, Are you getting them from our repo or from some other source02:59
quaalErnieDuglas, yes, when i drag the file from the desktop into the share, then it works properly02:59
quaalErnieDuglas, so this is some kind of a firefox problem?02:59
puneethJack_Sparrow, from different source as in this case, opera 9.63 deb03:00
cornellmmm.... "No valid mirror found", "... no mirror entry for the upgrade was found.This can happen if you run an internal mirror or if the mirror information is out of date.   Do you want to rewrite your 'sources.list' file anyway? If you choose 'Yes' here it will update all 'feisty' to 'gutsy' entries. ..."03:00
ErnieDuglasyes & no. It's just that one is "hookt up" and the other isnt yet id wager/guess.03:00
cornellDo I want to choose Yes?03:00
Y-Townanyone know a good GUI file sync app?03:00
WebcamWonderNubun: And it doesn't go forward to finish the command? sudo is known to have trouble, but carries out the command03:00
Jack_Sparrowpuneeth, Look for a readme wher eyou are getting the programs you are trying to install.  Not all debs are created equal03:01
puneethJack_Sparrow; i couldnt install virtualbox cus of the same problem03:01
Jack_Sparrowpuneeth, virtualbox from our repos works just fine03:01
Nubunsudo b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware wl_apsta-     didn't have a problem with this ??03:01
Jack_Sparrowpuneeth, Getting debs from other sources can really trash a system03:01
ubottuUbuntu and Debian are closely related. Ubuntu builds on the foundations of Debian architecture and infrastructure, with a different community and release process. See http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/relationship - Remember, !repositories meant for Debian should NOT be used on Ubuntu!03:02

SSilver2kplease someone03:05
SSilver2khow can i set the resolution from the command line?  is xrandr the only way03:05
kabFlannel, ahh ok, thank you so much!03:05
SSilver2ki have an ubuntu system, stock 8.10, will not be hooked up to the internet, so just tock 8.10.  it keeps switching resolution to a widescreen res, but i need it to stay at 1024x768, how can i do that?03:05
FloodBot1SSilver2k: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.03:05
LaderiusWhere does Xchat install to? im using ubuntu 8.1003:06
ErnieDuglasSSilver2k: you want to set your X config03:06
vocxLaderius, what do you want to do with it?03:06
DexiLaderius: /usr/lib/03:06
Nubunsudo chmod o+rx /lib/firmware/b43 /lib/firmware/b43legacy   problem with this line03:06
Laderiusvocx install a mrc script03:06
Dexino thats wrong03:06
SSilver2ki checked my xorg.conf - there were three lines in it03:06
SSilver2kall saying auto03:06
SSilver2kdidnt look like any normal xorg.conf03:06
Laderiusdexi ll i need to do is install a script03:07
DexiLaderius: put it in /home/yourusername/.xchat203:07
ErnieDuglasSSilver2k: yes you want it to have the res 1024x768 inside /etc/X11/xorg.conf03:07
LaderiusThx dexi03:07
XarosCould someone recommend a good piano keyboard program for Linux?03:07
ErnieDuglasSSilver2k: make it the only entry. and leave the Scan rate the same as it says (I find it's OK it only reports wrong number)03:08
Nubunwebcamwonder what is sudo03:08
WebcamWonder!sudo | Nubun03:08
ubottuNubun: 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)03:08
Nubunsudo chmod o+rx /lib/firmware/b43 /lib/firmware/b43legacy  this does not work ?03:08
vocxSSilver2k, since 8.04, xorg.conf file is almost empty, you would only modify it to override some options, or when the x server doesn't detect everything for you, as seems the case with you.03:08
Laderiusdexi its not working how do i execute it? im trying /load -rs de4.mrc03:08
WebcamWonderNubun: What does it say?03:09
canon247Hi all, I am trying to mount my main harddrive using ubuntu 8.10 live dvd thru the File Browswer and it's not mounting. What is going wrong?03:09
Nubuncannot resolve host03:09
DexiLaderius: use a full path03:09
WebcamWonderNubun: And is it working, or did it quit?03:09
Mene-MeneUbuntu itself recognizes it as the wrong time.03:09
Nubununable to resolve host "myhostname"03:09
ErnieDuglasSSilver2k: er, the only Resolution entry. so that it only chooses that one you want03:09
ocRobcanon247: what cmd are you using03:10
WebcamWonderNubun: try iwconfig now03:10
Laderiusdexi /load -rs ~/home/myusername/.xchat2/de4.mrc?03:10
DexiLaderius: if that doesnt work, restart xchat and it should load automatically03:10
vocxcanon247, how is that? Does it give an error? Have you tried mounting from the command line?03:10
Nubunno wireless extentions03:10
SSilver2kthere used to be xf86conf that i used years ago to select those and creat an x conf, anything like that now03:11
Nubunhave not run this command sudo ifconfig wlan0 up03:11
ErnieDuglashey has ne1 gotten DUKE NUKEM 3D to work on here using YANG or some other way of doing it???!!!? ***** <<<<< Important .  :)03:11
canon247not quite familiar with the command lines.......is there a specific comman line i should be using?03:11
WebcamWonderNubun: chmod has not visual response, so it shouldn't tell you anything03:11
WebcamWonderNubun: It shouldn't really matter, but go ahead and try03:11
jinja-sheepFlannel:  As you said earlier, I'm at rescue operation mode now -- Exceute a shell in /dev/mps/root or in the installer environment or choose a different root file system or reboot the system?  I don't want to interrupt the interesting convo in #ubuntu-offtopic. :)03:11
Nubuncan we change the permissions manually03:11
vocxSSilver2k, no, configuration of the X Server is supposed to be greatly improved now. But you still are able to modify xorg.conf.03:11
Nubunrather than using sudo?03:11
ocRobcanon247: do you know what the device name is03:11
WebcamWonderNubun: It works, the error you see is from sudo, not chmod, and it continues, and doesn't really care03:12
Flanneljinja-sheep: Um, I'd imagine the former.  But again, with the encrypted stuff, I'm not really sure.03:12
Jack_SparrowNubun, Hey Peter, how is it going tonight03:12
vocxcanon247, type "sudo fdisk -l" to list your disks, then you can use a command such as "sudo mount /dev/sda1 /some/point"03:12
jinja-sheepFlannel:  Suppose we go with the usual procedure?  It did asked me for the password so I'm sure it should be same (in boot).03:12
ErnieDuglasSSilver2k: a version or two back, you could still run 'dpkg reconfigure xserver-xorg' and get back in. I have no idea now a days!!!03:12
canon247have identified device name  but   each time  i click and try to mount receive window message saying unable to mount volume03:12
Flanneljinja-sheep: You don't want it in the installer, you want it in your harddrive.  I'm just not sure what /dev/msp/root is03:13
\Kirawhats the command to see what services are running on my machine?03:13
Nubunyes can see the permissions changed for those directories03:13
Flannel\Kira: `ps aux` will suffice03:13

\Kiramy samba and cups are really messed up, but I dont need them. But, every time I go to do something in apt-get, I get a long list of errors about cups and samba stuff. How can I remove these errors?03:18
Jack_Sparrowjmd9qs, Just pointing out that many sites wont let you connect while using tor due to the abuse factor03:18
turtle_Drace, you might have to reinstall, thats what I ended up doing03:18
Flanneljinja-sheep: Go to /boot/ and see if you have a vmlinuz there, and a initrd03:18
ocRobvocx: ah you are right03:19
boscoslifeocRob: i have more than one website so is it ln -s /var/www/www.boscoslife.com #that file in that directory#        /home/bosco/public_html03:19

turtle_ive learned not to grow too attached to my data even though itd be great to have it all again03:19
turtle_will transmission block the copyright police?03:19
WebcamWonderNubun: If you ran the dpkg commands, those installed the deb files03:20
Flanneljinja-sheep: Ah, well.... that could be one reason.  Um, check your fstab (less /etc/fstab) is boot on a separate partition?03:20
Jack_Sparrowjmd9qs, tor is where I would ask, but genreally need to wait most of a day for answers03:20
vocxocRob, do you know about the mounter applet? It only shows those drives that are not in fstab? Do you know why?03:20
PhaseSo, at some point in my computers always-on state, sound just stops working. I've tried restarting pulseaudio (/etc/init.d/pulseaudio restart) but nothing comes up except another command prompt, pulseaudio -k doesn't work either. The only way I've seen that fixes it -- is restarting.. continue cycle. Any ideas?03:20
Jack_Sparrowturtle_, Nope03:20
ocRobvocx: why is that03:20
DraceMy windows has major errors and it cannot boot. How can I run Ubuntu now?03:20
jmd9qsJack_Sparrow, yup, figures. thanx anyway03:20

ocRobvocx: that are NOT in fstab?03:20
DraceUbuntu has errors mounting03:20

DraceYou know the one it gives when windows crashed unexpectedly03:20
barbarella \Kira:apt-get remove samba cups, if you don't need it03:20
jinja-sheepI see /etc/fstab.  Bunch of... information about the hdd displayed.  I think it's in separate partition on account of encrypted lvm.03:21
\Kirabarbarella: causes the same errors03:21
Jack_SparrowDrace, How was ubuntu installed and please dont say wubi03:21
ocRobboscoslife: what'd you type03:21
joejcif my i lost my 3d acceleration when upgraded to 8.10 and still dont have it other distros could the kernal be the problem?03:21
DraceThrough a mounted image o.O03:21
ocRobvocx: i never use the mounter applet, cli :P03:21
vocxocRob, I formated my hard drive in such a way that reserved space for 2 Windows partitions. So after install the Windows partitions are not there, but nevertheless I can mount them with a single click in the applet. I'm just trying to figure out how this works.03:21
DraceI just downloaded it and ran the image file03:22
ocRobvocx: ahh i have my windows partitions in /etc/fstab so it mounts them on boot up03:22
DraceDidnt burn it to a cd..03:22
Nubunwebcam wonder did not install the deb packages with with  dbkg03:22
\Kirabarbarella: it reports that the packages are not installed, then trys to configure and start the services, obviously failing. Every time I do anything in apt-get, at the end it tries to configure and start samba a cups....03:22
Nubunsorry dpkg03:22
Jack_SparrowDrace, Cant help with that..03:22
boscoslifeOnyx: my ip address/website is still linked to /var/www           ln -s /var/www/www.boscolife.com /home/bosco/public_html03:22
turtle_Drace,  I try to one OS per CPU from now on03:22
Nubunthere is a 32bit and 64bit version03:22
Nubunwhich one should i install?03:22
turtle_it happened to me more than once03:22
barbarella \Kira:what does dpkg -l |grep samba say?03:22
boscoslifeocRob: : my ip address/website is still linked to /var/www           ln -s /var/www/www.boscolife.com /home/bosco/public_html03:23
WebcamWonder<WebcamWonder> Nubun: If you ran the dpkg commands, those installed the deb files03:23
DraceUbuntu says if you can force it with mount -ntsf.... or something03:23
vocxocRob, I made a partition for home and another one, like /ABC, but those ones are in fstab so they don't appear in the applet, not in nautilus with the single click automount capability.03:23
DraceDIdnt work for me03:23
jinja-sheepI see /etc/fstab.  Bunch of... information about the hdd displayed.  I think it's in separate partition on account of encrypted lvm.  I see a boot partition (sda5).03:23
DraceSo its not possible?03:23
turtle_Drace,  do you have to computers?03:24
Jack_SparrowDrace, You cant run ubuntu from ntfs03:24
ubottuFor lists of supported hardware on Ubuntu see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport - To help debugging and improving hardware detection, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingHardwareDetection03:24
ocRobboscoslife: all that command does is create a symbolic link (~/public_html) which points to /var/www, you still need to edit the apache configuration to allow user directories (~/public_html)03:24
DraceI have 2 computers if thats what you meant03:24

turtle_Drace, put windows on one(for gaming or whaterver, and put Linux on the other03:24
ocRobvocx: if its in fstab it will mount at boot..03:24
boscoslifeocRob: ok do you have a site on how to do that03:25
DraceThe second is not my computer. Im hoping to run Ubuntu to retrieve some important files...03:25
linux_newbieHI, How come cario dock fails to auto start?03:25
Jack_SparrowDrace, Ubuntu can read write ntfs or fat03:25
turtle_many people need MS office for MS word to post resumes and such.03:25
jinja-sheepDo anybody know how to repair a broken system?  It seems that all of the files in /boot is empty.03:25
Jack_SparrowDrace, Boot a livecd of ubuntu and save your files to usb drive03:25

ocRobboscoslife: ok the userdir mod is enabled03:46
ocRobboscoslife: if you want to link your ~/public_html you need to rm -rf ~/public_html (assuming you don't want anything in that directory tree) and ln -s /var/www ~/public_html03:46
Gustavo_Gvocx: I am a linux noob, so I don't know where it would be documented. If the computer is still receiving power, and there is no way that it could have dumped the RAM into the harddrive, then I can't imagine any other way than for the RAM to remain persistent. That's the difference between Sleeping, and hibernation. Hibernation consumes NO power. Sleeping consumes enough to keep the DRAM...03:46
Guest94367I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix bootsplash problems. I managed to mess somethings up so I don't have a graphical boot screen anymore03:46
vocx\Kira, Gustavo_G, Guest94367, ocRob so as you see, my PC does some sort of hibernation. But what happens if I actually unplug it. Maybe the RAM was in fact being cycled by that tinny LED.03:46
boscoslifeocRob: then why is it that when i go to www.boscoslife.com it still lynks /var/www/index.html03:47
ocRobGuest94367: heh i know its on the forums..which are down right now, can't remmeber how i did it before03:47
vocxGustavo_G, yes, you are most probably correct, but this nevertheless amazed me...03:47
jinja-sheepvocx:  I have copied the files to /boot.  What do I need to do?  Editing the GRUB, you mentioned.03:47
SimonXwolter: just edit your Network Connection ( Right Click )03:47
Gustavo_GIf you unplug it, the information in RAM is lost. It's technically not hibernation.03:47
MyNamewhen not driven, how can programmers produce quality? the bain of this community?03:47
MyNamethe reason for lack of market share?03:47
Gustavo_GI am trying to install a series of .deb files, but there is apparently a dependency between them and so I guess there is a proper order in which to install them. Is there anything I can have dpkg do to resolve these dependencies?03:47
Guest94367I know about using the startup manager, but it doesn't work for me, so I switched to terminal commands. I wanted to change the image and for some reason it lost it03:47
ocRobboscoslife: b/c apache still sees the root dir for your webserver as /var/www, all your doing basically is linking boscoslife.com/~user to boscoslife.com03:47
vocxGustavo_G, so it's sort of a fake hibernation, that is until you unplug it, ha!03:48
Nubunwebcamwonder the problem yet persists03:48
LinuxNubCan someone tell me the command i need to edit xorg.conf? :]03:48
ocRobNubun: wait for the forums to come back up...03:48
vocxGustavo_G, what are those debs?03:48
Gustavo_Gvocx: Yeah. Just keep in mind that hibernation copies the contents of RAM into a file in the hard drive. You can unplug the computer, turn it back on, and the state will be restored.03:48
SimonXI love Intrepid!! Muaaaaach!03:49
Gustavo_GIt's a bunch of tools (mostly compiler stuff, i think) to cross compile linux for an AVR32 procsesor.03:49
boscoslifeocRob: i am actually able to go to myserverip/bosco~ and have it pull up the index.html in /home/bosco/public_html/index.html i have 3 users and 3 sites03:49
vocxGustavo_G, yes, I know. Hibernation is useful for laptops, but since this is a PC, this sort of fake-hibernation is still useful, since I don't need to unplug it.03:49

ocRobboscoslife: ~/public_html is the webroot for host/~user, /var/www is still the main webroot for your host03:50

cm_msl: i followed these directions http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/separatehome04:03
webpigeonBarbosa, thats okay04:03
vocxDavidSchles, it's always the graphics card. Change it to "vesa" in /etc/X11/xorg.conf then reboot04:03
\Kirahow can I restart the ssh dameon?04:03
DavidSchlesvocx: k i will try that04:03
barbarella\Kira:/etc/init.d/ssh restart04:04
webpigeon\Kira, sudo /etc/init.d/sshd restart (you might not need the d, i can't remember off hand)04:04
\Kirabarbarella: thanks04:04
\Kirawebpigeon: thanks04:04
vocxDavidSchles, once your system is up you may be able to search for the new driver of your nvidia/ati graphics card, etc.04:04
DavidSchlesvocx: ok ,i do have an nvidia card04:04
DavidSchlesvocx: would it matter that i am sometimes running an external monitor04:05
DavidSchlesvocx: what should i change to vesa?04:05
SimonXDavidSchles: nVidia running well in my intrepid....04:05
vocxDavidSchles, totally matters, since for some reason I don't know, something these things work on the external monitor but not the LCD, etc.04:05
boscoslifeocRob: http://pastebin.com/m55be2c7 that is the error message i got when making a file in that directory there and cp default to www.boscoslife.com and changed the correct directories04:06
SimonXmy compiz looks so wonderful...04:06
DavidSchlesvocx: still what should i change to vesa...i don't change my xorg for the external04:06
LinuxNubcould my "Failed to start X server" error be caused by refresh rates? I cant remember if that's what it was before >.<04:06
DavidSchlesvocx: and it panics without the monitor sometimes04:06
cm_more love please!04:07
ZmAYhave some problems with connecting to wifi, need some help pls04:07
vocxDavidSchles, there is a section called "Device", it should have an option called "Driver" next to it, put "vesa"     You should also check the kernel logs and the X server logs.04:07

DavidSchlesvocx: the sectoin device shows up a few times04:07

tonsofpcshrm... is there a way I can kill a connected port without killing the daemon on it or the client connected to it? (from a console)04:08
ocRobboscoslife: yeah a2ensite not mod04:09
vocxDavidSchles, ha ha, well, that's weird. Erase one, and leave just one. But now I remember, there should be a file named xorg.conf.failsafe, look at it. Rename it to xorg.conf, and save your current one.04:09
DavidSchlesvocx: ok04:09

LinuxNubHoly shit! my ubuntu CD's are outdated...04:11
vocxDavidSchles, just remember that I don't have direct experience with nVidia setups, I've read a lot of stuff but actually experimented little in this area. From nvidia I've read that they don't use "xinerama" anymore but "xrandr", so many xorg.conf may break down because of it.04:11

Nubunthe drivers you got off that site, was it plug and play04:12
jinja-sheepvocx:  There are bunch of kernels + initrd + quiet + etc. + title +.... but what about uid?  That's... purely random.  How can I find out what to correspond to?04:12

vocxjinja-sheep, sure!04:19
ubottuDear $DEITY, Give me strength to understand and work with users who question my logic, the rules, netiquette and common sense. Give me resilience to teach them the basics of Linux, Ubuntu, Community Guidelines and IRC. Allow me not to stray to nitpicking, argument, foul language or leisurely op abuse. Deliver me my daily xkcd, User Friendly, LWN, /. and Planet Ubuntu, and guard over my encrypted drives. Let it be so.04:19
LinuxNubso no-ones willing to give fixing a 5.10 error a shot? >.<04:20

LinuxNubMight not be under official support, but it's really not that hard an error to fix, im guessing if you knew your stuff it'd be common knowledge.. It's just been so long since ive fiddled with linux, i with linux im really clueless04:22

boscoslifeocRob: ERROR: Module usermod does not exist!04:24

n2diyjinja-sheep: try shutdown -h 1, and let it cook for a minute?04:27
vocxjinja-sheep, I'm not sure how it actually boots and goes down, but I'd say it's safe. Maybe "logout" or change the init level to 0 or something.04:27
jinja-sheepvocx:  I give up.  It's back to Windows era.  (re-installation).04:27
vocxjinja-sheep, installation is pretty fast so I don't see a downside. But I'm curious, how did you get a broken system?04:28

miranda_psileo__: download the mplayer plugins and use those - works like a dream05:09
vocxjinja-sheep, sure, maybe the kernel you installed has already touchpad support, but is disabled in some way. Probably you can install it a new, with a meta package such as "linux-image", maybe it will autoconfigure itself again.05:09

KatheLast go at the question, I need a good way to map the keyboard shortcuts for the volume controls to the PCM...  If I select PCM in the sound settings the controls are being faught by something,  that is if I press volume up the sound briefly goes up then it goes back down.  If I keep it on Master they work fine, but do to a sound driver bug the Master does not effect the sound output.05:32

wolterDrace, lets meet at ubuntu-classroom05:34
_Cid_wolter: ther eis a pretty good example in the samba.conf, just need to edit af ew lines, did you have a look?05:34
Brack101so wait, fedora/redhat don't have apt-get?05:34
wolter_Cid_, no, where do i go?05:34
CarlFK1why do I suck at pgrep?   http://dpaste.com/108407/05:34
_Cid_Brack101:  kinda ... you can install it, and somepeople maintain repo ..apt is a debian thingy mostly05:34
_Cid_wolter:  /etc/samba/smb.conf05:35
KatheBrack101, you can isntall it, but they have another package system defaultly05:35
Brack101I see05:35
CarlFK1I want to pkill gnome-screensaver, but it isn't finding it (guessing it is the - )05:35
Brack101because I was considering running fedora on a couple work computers but I don't know how I could live without apt-get05:35
_Cid_wolter: let me know if I am not making sense :-)05:35
_Cid_Brack101: they got 'yam'   no where near as nice ..but it works in a pinch05:36
Brack101I see05:36
_Cid_Brack101:  and you can yum install apt-get ;-)05:36

wolter_Cid_, you are..05:37

_Cid_wolter:  ok :)   we will take it in steps, dont worry - its not that hard05:38
myrdoes anyone know how i can fix a sound issue? all of a sudden the sound quality is pretty bad, it's hard to explain.05:38
_Cid_wolter:  first, you should know what samba is ... lets see if the bots got an answer for us05:38
ubottuSamba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and http://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.  Also see https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/21209805:38
_Cid_wolter: those links would probably get you started, but lets just go ahead and configure stuff right now -  go ahead and open a shell ( a command line window if you like)05:39
wolter_Cid_, thanks!05:39
noodlesgcCarlFK1 I think there is a limit on process name lengths05:39
_Cid_wolter: oh, I misread - I was making sense ..I thought I wasnt :P   well - Wolter, let me know if you need more help - go ahead and check the conf file - there is a home dir share example in there ready to use, just uncomment and restart samba (/etc/init.d/samba restart)05:40
CarlFK1noodlesgc: bitchen.  thanks a bunch.  I was going to start doing ps|grep|awk|mplayer hacks05:40

_2navetz on the camera itself  the menu "might" list  1. disk mode  2. digital camera mode  3. something else  ...06:25

cm_lot of help this channel is06:26
_2navetz no.  that doesn't indicate disk mode.  you need to disconnect it and see.06:26
navetz_2 okay06:26
TwoDDarkKnight, programs usually come with a manual page (manpage), just type "man the_command".06:26
TwoDDarkKnight, so in you case: "man fsck.ext3"06:27
unopDarkKnight, type.  sudo blkid  # is that UUID listed in the output?06:27
_2DarkKnight up arrow in the terminal might show the command06:27
mattgyver83Does anyone know what package needs to be installed for /etc/init.d/NetworkManager  Im using a script that calls for it, i have network manager installed however i have no such file06:27

navetz_2 okay the camera didn't have a disk mode i nthe mode sections, but it had instructions to connect it to the computer. I followed them and got the same error06:30
DarkKnight_2; didnt get you06:30
clearzenravenor_: my bad sudo aptitude install linux-headers-`uname -r`06:30

ThreetimesHi, how do I execute a command after inserting my USB drive?06:31
ThreetimesThe command would be "unison default"06:31
clearzenravenor_: you just need the headers for your current kernel uname -r shows the kernel version so it should append the current kernel number to the end and give you the right package06:31
_2DarkKnight this???    less ~/.bash_history    and use less's search feature<<<   man less    for info about it's search keys06:31
unopDarkKnight,  fdisk -l /dev/sdb06:32

ravenor_clearzen: Ok... this time it worked, but it didn't download anything? Output says no packages were downloaded.06:32
unopDarkKnight, anything? nothing?06:33
clearzenravenor_: that's fine. It just means you had them already06:33
_2navetz only digital camera i have any experance with has disk mode, which makes things real easy....  sorry.06:33

navetz_2: alright thanks anyway06:33
ravenor_clearzen: No need to uninstall? Mess around in Synaptics?06:33
unopDarkKnight, prepend sudo to the command perhaps?06:34
DarkKnight_2; i searched....i see that it has the commands which i used 3 weeks back06:34
clearzennope, we already checked for a loaded module and it isn't there so no worries06:34
mattgyver83unop, in my /etc/init.d/ dir i have 'network' however no networkmanager, though the package says its installed when i try to.  Any idea?06:34

FlannelBaz_: getmail (or fetchmail) will do that (fetch from a whole lot of external mail things), then you route that stuff through procmail if you want to do any sorting, and then procmail stores it in Maildir format (~/Maildir); then dovecot serves that email via IMAP to your clients (thunderbird, mutt, roundcube, whatever).  To send email, the clients send it to the ISPs servers, and then store a copy on the IMAP.08:01

hischild!sound | Makuseru08:02
ubottuMakuseru: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP308:02
FlannelBaz_: I personally use getmail.... I found it easier to configure than fetchmail, but if you ask me for specific merits... that was a long time ago ;)08:02
FlannelBaz_: But, that's how you can have all of your email on your home server and available to all of your various computers.08:02

scienteshow do i figure out what program is messing with my resolv.conf08:15
_28.4 is LTS and 8.10 is newest, both are current, yes08:15
unopscientes,  it's usually dhclient or resolvconf .. most probably the former08:16

_2scientes one can chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf   then the offending process will cry about not being able to change the file... that's one way to find it.08:17

unop!webmin | Baz_08:35
ubottuBaz_: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. See !ebox instead.08:35
ziroday!grub | nite_johnboy see the second link08:35

ubottuebox is a web-based GUI interface for administering a server. It is designed to work with Ubuntu/Debian style configuration management. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/eBox08:35

Gokee2archman, Because I have no idea how to get vmware working...  I installed "vmware-package" and can`t seem to figure out how to use it...  Looks like it builds other vmware packages?09:14
DasEiBlaenk: put them in the same group09:14
^_SMALLVILLE_^ bongkar09:14
Blaenkcan you please help me with that DasEi ? I would appreciate it09:14
archmanGokee2: i'll upload the guide for you...just a sec09:15
Gokee2archman, Thanks :)09:15
mikevankuikdoes anyone know where you can find what files logrotate rotates?09:15
norgayhi i am facing probs in printing09:16
mikevankuiknorgay: whats the issue?09:16
DasEiBlaenk: create a group with sudo grpadd , add bob and john there (useradd) , give the group write access09:16
norgayi m on a windows network and I need to print from a shared printer09:16
Blaenkthank you DasEi09:16
=== kj4 is now known as notfruity
norgayI tried to locate the shared printer but it does not show up in the network09:17
MatilloCan somebody help me how to re-configure my monitor? It stopped being detected all of a sudden.09:17
ubottuHi! I'm #ubuntu's favorite infobot, you can search my brain yourself at http://ubottu.com/factoids.cgi - Usage info: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBots09:17
mikevankuiknorgay: is it conected directly to the network? or is it atached to a computer?09:17
norgaymy work network is manual ip set09:17
norgayattached to a computer09:17
DasEiMatillo: which version ubuntu ?09:17
DasEiMatillo: sudo apt-get install displayconfig-gtk09:18
mikevankuiknorgay: can you see the computers?09:18
DasEiMatillo: sudo  displayconfig-gtk09:18
_2Blaenk groups is the key   i like to use the 'users' group for things like that.   set the perm to something like 075 on the basedir and own it by nobody:users09:18
mikevankuiknorgay: do you have samba installed?09:19
DasEiMatillo: backup xorg.conf before, search your monitor afterwards09:19
Matillowell, i've already tried running the xfix stuff, it detected on installation just fine, but now it's not fixing.09:19
Blaenknobody:users? what would that mean09:19
=== dhoss-laptop_ is now known as dhoss
mikevankuiknorgay: they have the printer shared do they?... otherwise its useless to look on your *nix machine...09:20
archmanGokee2: http://rapidshare.com/files/182717623/vmware-workstation6_manual.pdf09:20
_2Blaenk man chown    man chmod     man groups09:20
archmani hope it'll help09:20
norgayyeah the printer is shared09:20
abzhello everybody?09:20
r3duxhey abz09:20
simplexioBlaenk: nobody user from users group own file09:20
DasEiBlaenk: chmod is another way, google for it09:21
MatilloSo, what is this displayconfig-gtk? The screen resolution gui? That doesn't detect my display.09:21
abzr3dux: ;)09:21
tsai0AceBlade258:  are you signed into MSN?  nike365 is looking for you.  I'm his brother09:21
_2i'm went.   gooday to one and all.09:21
DasEi!who | Matillo09:21
ubottuMatillo: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)09:21
BlaenkDasEi: well wasn't the point to chmod from the beginning?09:21
norgayi guess the problem is like this:  i am the only ubuntu machine in my office which has 10 other computers on windows.....all the computers have manual ip....dhcp doesnot work so its set mannual09:21
MatilloYeah, thanks for that. Unnecessary.09:21
r3duxMatillo, X doesn't rec your screen res?09:21
Blaenkor wait, nevermind09:21
abzi can't access ubuntu forum, can u?09:21
Matillor3dux: No, it pops up in safemode whatever for resolution.09:22
r3duxIt was down earlier, abz... maybe still09:22
DasEiMatillo:You can search a list of monitors in displ....09:22
Blaenkokay if I have group 'grp1', how would I go about, nevermind09:22
r3duxMatillo, have you tried entering some res's in xorg.conf?09:22
mikevankuiknorgay: doesn't have to be an issue you should still be able to connect to an other machine and use that printer if its shared.09:22
edward__1hi everyone09:22
abzr3dux: owwh, thx . .09:22
Matillor3dux: no, because I try not to touch that without knowing what I'm doing, that's what I came to ask about. Is that my last resort?09:22
franklinha ha ha ...!cn09:22
norgaylemme try again and let u know .....will be back in few minuts09:23
micro0hey guys im new to ubuntu, and i just installed compiz fusion but i dont know how to get the 3d cube working, can someone help me?09:23
Blaenkhey if i do something like chown grp1 someDir/, does that mean that anything within someDir will be owned by grp1, or do I need the -R flag, oh and even then, when new things are created in that dir, would it still be grp1's?09:23
DasEiMatillo:also if you find it, the gtk writes the monitor section, including modlines, for you09:23
r3duxMatillo, or using the nvidia display interface? Or ati one?09:23
abzanybody have downloaded madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007.tar.gz ??09:23
c0nfl|ct bom dia mundo09:23
palluhello all of you09:23
boghoghi you09:23
micro0can someone help me09:23
r3duxMatillo, "NVidia X Display Settings" thing, I mean, or whatever the ATI one is09:23
edward__1android ? have one ?09:23
palluhas any one seen the mac say what time it is?09:23
abzi need it . . .but the file from http://snapshots.madwifi-project.org/special/madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007.tar.gz is only contain README file . .09:24
abzisn't it?09:24
micro0someone help me09:24
Matillor3dux: well I'm using the fglrx for ati, but I don't know how to configure monitors with that.09:24
Blaenkhey DasEi so is this fine. chown -R :mygrp1 myDir/09:24
abzsomebody give me a mirror for madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007.tar.gz :(09:24
r3duxThere's a way from the install of the driver, I used to have a ATI x1400...09:24
r3duxGrab the driver and do "./ati-blah --help"09:25
mikevankuiknorgay: can you ping the other machine? (where the one where the printer is conected to)09:25
edward__1you can search it from google blaenk, why no?09:25
pallumicro0:what are you trying to do?09:25
micro0im trying to get the 3d cube working threw compiz09:25
Matillor3dux: the aticonfig help is like 10+ pages09:25
palluone monitor>09:25
pallui got it working on 2 monitors its so cool09:26
Gokee2archman, Hmm I was hoping for more of a debian/ubuntu way of doing things.  Do you use a ubuntu package or do you download from the vmware site?09:26
r3duxMatillo, there are simple example near the top... or just read. Do you want me to look at the screen setup in my xorg.conf and give you the format?09:26
micro0pallu: did u hear me09:26
palluso what driver are you using09:26
Matillor3dux: I was kind of hoping to figure out how to make it detect it and autoconfigure again09:26
quibblermicro0: go to systen>preferences>compiz config manager09:26
Blaenkedward__1: I did, and couldn't figure it out, which is why I'm asking here09:26
micro0ok now what09:27
oirahi i was wondering if someone could direct me to some sort of reference tool for the terminal. something like tomboy, and such programs. but again something for the terminal. (and i dont mean vi, its too loose, i have too many documents to keep track off)09:27
Blaenkchown seems to ask for owner:group, but what if I want the entire group, everyone in the group, to be the owner? chown :group ?09:27
micro0pallu: now what09:27
Matillor3dux: aticonfig --query-monitor returns "Connected monitors: none"09:27
SlartBlaenk: I don't think a group can own a file09:27
palluyou need to know if the driver that x is loading is going to let you load the cube09:28
r3duxMatillo, actually that's not going to help now it's done diff... no explicit monitor res stuff in xorg.conf09:28
BlaenkSlart: directory even?09:28
SlartBlaenk: it has to be user and group... but you can set permissions for the group09:28
r3duxMatillo, that's odd...09:28
palludo you have copiz-fusion installed?09:28
Matillor3dux: it's a laptop display too.09:28
micro0 yes09:28
micro0i do09:28
micro0im in the manager right now09:28
SlartBlaenk: nope, not even for a idrectory09:29
Blaenkah okay Slart, and for the latter part you mentioned, could you give me an example please? I would extremely appreciate it09:29
micro0click on desktop then go to 3d cube, i know, but then i dunno what to do after09:29
Blaenk'set permissions for the group' on a directory?09:29
SlartBlaenk: are you using command line?09:29
Blaenkyes sir09:29
BlaenkI already created the group and put my two users in it09:29
Blaenknow I want that group, call it grp1, to have write access to somedir/09:29
SlartBlaenk: chmod g+rw filename  will make everyone in the group have read and write permissions09:29
Blaenkso chmod grp1 g+rw somedir/ right09:30
Blaenkoh, chmod -R too09:30
TerrasqueBlaenk: chgrp grp1 somedir; chmod g+w somedir/09:30
simplexioBlaenk: chown user:group file changes owners09:30
archmanGokee2: khm downloaded09:30
r3duxMati - what's the default res?09:30
SlartBlaenk: the 'g' means the change the permissions for the group, +r means to add read permissions, +w means to add write permissions.. +r+w is written as +rw09:30
r3duxI mean, the native res09:30
Matillor3dux: like, 1280x800 normally?09:30
Blaenkah thank you Slart I really appreciate it, and I do put the group name in there right09:31
Blaenkchmod g+rw -R grp1 somedir/09:31
r3duxMatillo, are you using the restricted drivers?09:31
Blaenkor do I do what Terrasque said09:31
SlartBlaenk: not if the file is alread owned by a user and a group09:31
Blaenkso I assume I do what Terrasque said09:31
Matillor3dux: yeah, but i think my video card is still configured right, it's just the monitor I can't make work09:31
SlartBlaenk: what you write in the chmod command will be for the group that owns the file09:32
Blaenkohhh I see what you mean now09:32
boghoganyone know how to force X to use 1024x768 resolution on my laptop with intel 815 graphics? in gnome it only lets me choose 800x600 or lower. it is driving me crazy, i tried adding Modes option to display subsection of screen but to no avail09:32
r3duxMatillo, I would change from restricted to not, or vice versa and see if that works - and then take it from there09:32
Blaenkbut what if the group doesn't already own the file, do I do what Terrasque said then?09:32
Blaenkchgrp grp1 somedir; then what you said09:32
Matillor3dux: Not restricted isn't supported.09:32
Gokee2archman, Hmm I take it that its not easy to use the debian/ubuntu utils to install it then?  Also whats the difference with VMware Workstation and VMware Server?09:32
DasEiBlaenk: chown -R ,grp1  /some/dir09:32
boghogand every hit on google points to the ubuntu forums with are down...09:32
Blaenkah thank you, is the comma intentional? I assume not09:33
* boghog starts pulling his hair out09:33
archmanGokee2: i downloaded the version from the internet, installed from sources i put in serial, and that's it...no problem...09:33
Matillor3dux: Maybe. I can't use the open source stuff, anyway.09:33
archmanGokee2: dunno really09:33
Baz_if i use dovecot does that mean i dont need postfix?09:33
SlartBlaenk: you can change what group owns the file later and the permissions will transfer.. the file only knows that "my group can read/write me", not that "group gr1 can read/write me"09:33
r3duxMatillo, either that or grab the most recent ATI drivers from the site - either way - reinstall your graphic card drivers09:33
Matillor3dux: Either way, it's a monitor issue. Display adapter's fine.09:33
DasEiBlaenk : should be a colon, see man chown09:33
zirodayBaz_: yes09:33
nunu_Hi, can anyone tell me why I'm not able to use synaptic (sudo) ? my user is in the sudo group but synaptic refuses to install upgrades09:33
Matillor3dux: this is a clean install. I've reinstalled twice in as many days. I got the ati drivers last night and still got them on my flash drive.09:33
zirodayBaz_: unless you have a postfix or similar server elsewhere that dovecot can connect to09:34
archmanGokee2: try to dl' it and install, there are instructions. you new to linux?09:34
abzanyone have ccsm crash like this : Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/ccsm", line 38, in <module> . . ?09:34
DasEiMatillo:did you try the gtk ?09:34
Baz_does IMAP (or dovecot specifically) support address books and contacts or is that where an ldap solution comes in?09:34
zirodayBaz_: thats ldap :)09:34
MatilloDasEi: I dunno what to do with that.09:34
abzhelp me please, my ccsm crashed . .:(09:34
Blaenkright, which was what I was going to do in the beginning DasEi, so chown -R :grp1 somedir/ && chmod -R g+rw somedir/, right Slart ?09:34
oirahi i was wondering if someone could direct me to some sort of reference tool for the terminal. something like tomboy, and such programs. but again something for the terminal. (and i dont mean vi, its too loose, i have too many documents to keep track off)09:34
zirodayBaz_: and if you're looking for a webmail client roundcube is highly recommended09:34
r3duxMatillo, have your tried running glxinfo (or fglxinfo) | grep direct09:34
SlartBlaenk: that looks right09:35
r3duxMatillo, it should say yes, if not... driver issues09:35
TerrasqueBlaenk: just try it out09:35
Gokee2archman, No, I am just trying to figure out what options vmware has for me and if I can build a package for myself with the vmware-package ubuntu provides.  I really like packages09:35
BlaenkSlart: one last question, if a user within the group creates a file in that dir, somedir/, it will still be the same permissions right? meaning the group will have ownership, since I did it recursively09:35
DasEiBlaenk : sudo chown -R :grp1  /somedir09:35
r3dux("direct rendering", that is)09:35
SlartBlaenk: if you're going to be using special permissions with lots of weird users/groups there are stuff you can install to let you use acl's.. I think it's pretty much like in windows09:35
Matillor3dux: OpenGL Renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect?09:36
Baz_ziroday: who knew setting up email was so involved! So far I have Ubuntu/Dovecot/Roundcube/Spamassasin/ClamAV/SSL/MySQL (for RoundBox) and I still havent figured out what I'm going to do about sending mail!09:36
TerrasqueBlaenk: you could have done some extensive experimenting on the time you've tried to get a full answer here :)09:36
regulardrakehey everyone09:36
r3duxMatilla... ahhhh.... that's not good.09:36
BlaenkTerrasque: I wouldn't know if I would be able to revert my mistakes09:36
DasEiMatillo:ypu can search your monitor there09:36
r3duxMatillo, drivers haven't taken09:36
TerrasqueBlaenk: then use a test dir, not the real dir09:36
SlartBlaenk: hmm.. there is a setting for that too.. if new files in a folder inherites the parent folders permissions.. not sure how to set it though.. might be something called guid but I'm not sure09:36
Baz_Matillo: when i look at your name i see 'mail to:'09:36
Matillor3dux: Ok, well how can I change that?09:37
Blaenkyeah I believe so, but I know even less heh, thanks Slart I really appreciate your help09:37
=== notfruity is now known as kj4
zirodayBaz_: right, its harder then it looks :). I personally use dovecot+postfix+roundcube on a debian server. Remember to setup ssl with postfix+dovecot _as_ well as with the webserver nad roundcube09:37
SlartBlaenk: you're welcome09:37
norgaymike......i can ping the other machine with the printer09:37
r3duxReinstall your gfx drivers, do some research... for some reason you're not getting h/w accel'd gfx - just software09:37
Baz_ziroday: i thought u said with dovecote u dont need postfix09:38
zirodayBaz_: you don't need postfix if you are connecting dovecot to a postfix server somewhere else09:38
Matillor3dux: Ok, well, would that explain my monitor suddenly being unconfigured?09:38
r3duxMatillo, there's STACKS of forums and wikis about this kinda stuff.. yeah - it would def explain it - you're using software gfx atm.09:39
Baz_ziroday: I am a bit of a bobo - if i am making my own entire solution that means i need it then right?09:39
Matillor3dux: I had to run through stacks of forums and wikis just to get the drivers installed09:39
norgayhi mike u there?09:39
Matillor3dux: I have 3d hardware acceleration, I'm just trying to get a screen resolution I an use.09:39
Baz_ziroday: i guess i just dont get why an MTA is separate09:40
r3duxMatillo, should be as simple as chmod +x ati-blah; ./ati-blah..09:40
DasE1Matillo : which monitor have you got ?09:40
Matillor3dux: well the aticonfig program runs fine. i dunno what monitor i've got, my laptop display.09:40
r3duxHe's got a 1280x800 lapop, DasE109:40
r3duxMatillo, what model is your laptop?09:41
MatilloDasE1: What I'm getting with detect is an 800x600 plug n' play monitor, and that's wrong.09:41
Matillor3dux: Dell vostro 1000, earlier today it was running fine, then I updated and installed windows networking somethingorother.09:41

datakidlooking for a strong password for root. 8 chars is max? and can I use symbols?09:49
ActionParsnipdatakid: didnt think it had a max limit really09:49
ActionParsnipdatakid: you can use anything you can type on your keyboard09:50
quibblerdatakid, no max and yes09:50
datakidah,. ok - for some reason I thought that *nix had an 8 char limit, don't know why09:50
ActionParsnipdatakid: i personally use button shapes rather than actual words so they are gobbldygook anyhoo09:50
datakidok thanks all ActionParsnip, quibbler09:50
Mulderah yes, for some reason the PCM was set to mute09:51
MatilloAlright, well, I ran the displayconfig-gtk and tested a generic monitor of that resolution! And it hung up and now i'm booting to busybox, even recovery console.09:51
ActionParsnipdatakid: for a strong pass i'd use more than 8 at least09:52
MatilloDasE1: Any thoughts?09:52
Mulderthanks for the suggestions DasE1, ActionParsnip09:52
ActionParsnipdatakid: at my work we have a policy where we have to have at least 12 length with mixed case, at least one number and a character in the pass as well09:52
datakidyeah, I'm going for unreadable, have no fear09:53
DasEiMatillo: busybox or x not staring ?09:53
MatilloDasE1 I can't log into the recovery console.09:53
DasEiMatillo: so you got a further problem then x-server09:54
MatilloDasE1 I sure do now. Any ideas on how to get back onto ubuntu or is it time for another clean install?09:54
ActionParsnipMatillo: if you cant boot to recovery console then your system is quite ill, i'd run an fsck in livecd as well as scan your memory for errors09:55
DasEiMatillo: that can be a disk error or sth with initramfs, which can be updated09:55
MatilloDasE1 Winxp runs fine, on this machine, btw.09:55
Vincemanpssst, how do you enable SSL protocol?09:55
DasEiMatillo: first I#d try tp run e2fsck -p  on the unmounted drive from live, they try a update-initramfs from chroot ( also live)09:57
MatilloDasE1: I'm not gonna touch it. Reinstall time.09:57
MatilloOk, first I'm actually gonna try booting from a livecd, but I have to set up the proper drivers or at least VESA from the start. How's that done again?09:58
johnskulskihey does anyone know how i can tar extract to a differnet path than what it was tarred with. say it extracts to ./foo/file1 I would like to extract it to ./bar/file109:58
DasEiMatillo: your choice, maybe backup mbr or install grub manually afterwards (win)09:59
lain_wired_I'm running ubuntu on an asus eeepc 1000h and a few of the apps i run are too tall for the screen. the bottom of the window goes off the screen and i'm unable to shift it up or select any of the covered options without a fair amount of blind tabbing and guesswork09:59

CrypTomHi all, is there a problem with usermod or useradd when adding lots (~1000) users to one group? I've added hundreds of users to some groups (audio, etc.) without problems, but then suddenly useradd/usermod report that the specified group cannot be found (even if it is there). Changing the group with adduser user group works!10:07
Vincemananother tiny question, I can't delete the mails from my inbox anymore, it just strikes them through, more spam than ever reached my inbox, it's disgusting!10:08
clearzenaurora: how long have you let the connection sit? Is it just being slow?10:08
auroraclearzen: I've left it for about 2 minutes and it just stays on that chequered screen10:08
ActionParsnipVinceman: i use opera and firefox and soon firepup if it runs well, just gonna test it later today10:08
ActionParsnipVinceman: spam is offtopic here, make sure you have full access to the folder your emails are saved to10:09
clearzenaurora: ok, is both machines on the same local network?10:09
auroraclearzen: yes, both local lan10:10
clearzenaurora: just covering bases, but the router is set to allow all communication over the lan right10:10
