WinterWeaverbobbyd, how do I run the applet? I tried to add to the gnome panel, but the only extra applet I saw there was a FreqScaling monitor, it does not measure the temperature00:00
Kevin___Does anyone have any ideas on my issue? I have a lot of important stuff on there and I'm really not sure what to do.00:00
nightrid3rKevin___: can you ssh into the box?00:01
CarolinaSwampcan you echo an end of line character ? ie echo "line 1 \n line2 \n" > file00:01
bobbydWinterWeaver: you need to install it with synaptic, then add "CPUFreq monitor" in the applets menu00:01
Kevin___Nightrid3r: I have a web admin interface installed and can access a terminal prompt from there.00:01
=== _cappiz is now known as cappiz

bobbydKevin___: can you just do ctrl-alt-f1 and get a terminal?00:03
WinterWeaverbobbyd, there is no option for preferences... left click gives be a list of presets for cpu frequency, right click just gist the standard gnome panel options (ie. move, remove etc.), but no preferences00:03
bobbydKevin___: remember ctrl-alt-f7 to get back here :)00:03

Kevin___bobbyd: Can I just run the commands from webmin?00:04
lrdApexroni: or if you like ruby they have some nice ways of crawling web pages00:04
ubottuwebmin 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.00:04
WinterWeaverbobbyd, you have the same version of ubuntu ? 8.0400:05
bobbydKevin___: the other thing to do is log in as root (use the recovery option at the GRUB prompt), you then have full access to the machine and could create another user account, or transfer the data00:05

whileimhereLOL okay i will stick to the adobe product for now then.00:57
Sylphidfromero69, that doesnt tell anyone anything... what are you trying to do ... what program is it erroring on... we need something more to get an idea of where you having problems00:58
nightrid3rskandlous: burn the iso IMAGE to cd end reboot00:58
kitcheardchoille: yeah it's a bit limited it seems compared to adobe's at least last time I knew00:59
fromero69I am trying to run the package manager and it says error:brokencount>000:59
skandlousnightrid3r: are there any downloadable executables that i dont have to burn first00:59
ardchoillekitche: Ah, ok. I used it once and it seemed ok, but I didn't get too deep into the app00:59
nightrid3rskandlous: no all you need is in the iso00:59
Ratinhoanybody use xen in Ubuntu Server 8.10 that can help me?00:59
nightrid3rskandlous: remember to burn as an image, not as data dsik00:59
outofthemadnessSchuenemann: maybe try adjusting the PCM volume01:00
fromero69 I am trying to run the package manager and it says error:brokencount>001:00
VictorixPlease can i install xubuntu on my laptop Toshiba tecra 8100 PIII 128 Mo ?01:00
Sylphidfromero69, open synaptic and go to edit and click fix broken packages01:00
bartekHi there, what's the proper way to  tie a command to a specific script script in a dir (i.e: /var/lib/some_script) ? Using alias in .bashrc or ?01:00
outofthemadnessSchuenemann: in the volume control that is01:00
vigofrmer69: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=41818201:00
skandlousok thanks... i need to get a burner first... running an asus eee and dont have an external cdrom yet01:00
Schuenemannoutofthemadness, it's already maxed. And that distorts the sound...01:00
Schuenemanneverything is maxed, actually01:01
nightrid3rVictorix: should work01:01
whileimhereI am not sure what happened but after the last few updates my wireless kicked in and has been working without dropped signals.01:01
fromero69this is my 3rd day using linux so I dont know much about anything. i tried to use synaptic manager but I got this  messageE: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.01:01
fromero69E: _cache->open() failed, please report.01:01
nightrid3rwhileimhere: the magic of updates :)01:01
jtajibartek: I'd put a link to it in a directory already in your path, like /usr/local/bin01:02
bartekjtaji: good idea! thanks01:02
Sylphidfromero69, Applications > Accessories > Terminal01:02
nightrid3rfromero69: open a terminal and type in the dpkg..... command01:02
Sylphidfromero69, then type sudo dpkg --configure -a01:02
fromero69okay ill do that01:02
outofthemadnessSchuenemann, that's all I've got to suggest. I had that same problem, but that's how I solved it. My PCM volume was too high... IIRC there is a linux audio channel on freenode. I might suggest trying there01:03
linxehare there any tools that can take a pdf and reencode all the images to a particular dpi/resolution/size?01:03

fromero69okay sorry01:04
whileimhereIs the XFCE desktop really lighter on the system than GNOME?01:04
eseven73echo_: archiver, fileroller maybe01:04
skandlousnew question but not ubuntu specific: if updates fail to install is that because they dont pertain to my current distro and or system reqa01:04
Newfie_richgonewestcoast: ok but do you know how to compile java code?01:04
nightrid3rwhileimhere: yes it is01:05
linxehwhileimhere: yes. I know someone using it on a p20001:05
gonewestcoastNewfie_rich: Apparently not. :-p01:05
eseven73whileimhere: yes but xfce is getting more bloated every day01:05
echo_Hello. What's good software for ZIP and RAR files? Right out of the box, I can't extract anything, it says unknown archive so I guess I need better software. Anyone?01:05
linxehNewfie_rich: you use javac to compile the code to java bytecode (for the vm). the JVM then compiles it to native code or interprets it.01:05
whileimhereOn a p2 wowo01:05
eseven73whileimhere: if you really want something lightweight, try fluxbox01:05
fromero69I ran the command sudo dpkg --configure a01:05
h4mx0rwhileimhere: or lxde its pretty nice01:05
nightrid3recho_: rar is in the repo's01:05
weed37hi guys i use rapidshare for dling all my stuff and use the rs manager i just installed ubuntu on my sony vaio latop aand am used to vista or xp i was wondering if there is an app like rs manager i can use for getting my liles in linux01:05
linxehwhileimhere: p1, 200mhz :)01:05

Sylphidfromero69, run synaptic now ... should be fine01:06
whileimherea p1 linxeh? WOWW01:06
linxehNewfie_rich: you can in theory compile java to native code completely, but it is completely going against the whole point of the language. you should have used C.01:06
rxsHi! how do i disable xv output and change it to X11 in gstreamer. Using ubuntu 8.04 and xserver-xorg-video-ati01:06
echo_nightrid3r, I don't know what that means. Repo's?01:06
h4mx0rwhileimhere: your wireless can be setup manually in /etc/network/interfaces then just ifdown wlan0 and ifup wlan0 or whatever it is called if not wlan001:06
eseven73whileimhere: yep no panel icons or menus really :) that's what makes it lightweight01:06
whileimhereAhh but I am lazy and like some things auto.01:06
nightrid3recho_: use synaptic and search for rar01:06
powertool08Does anyone know of a program to create cd labels (for cd itself not case) specifically with the memorex template WL-OL502501:07
Newfie_richlinxeh thanks for your help that all i needed to know01:07
echo_nightrid3r, I am doing that, however nothing is GUI based (well, the last couple I've tried at least.)01:07
matrim26can anyone help with a printer issue? I'm on a windows network, and I'm trying to access a network printer. I got through the printer config stuff, and then it asked me for the "Password for root on localhost". Now, I know there is none set. Is there some way to get around that? Or something specific I'm supposed to put in?01:07
fromero69wow thank you so much01:07
fromero69it was such a simple fix lol01:07
h4mx0rwhileimhere: to get your wireless up in fluxbox you have to edit its startup file and do wirelessprogramthing & then next line have exec fluxbox01:07
powertool08matrim26: Try your username/pass01:07
nightrid3recho_: its for a server ?01:07
eseven73whileimhere: lightweight window mangers can run things automatically too, but you have to edit a file01:07
eseven73seems me and h4mx0r are on the same page :)01:08
echo_nightrid3r, no, it's not for a server.01:08
h4mx0rwhileimhere: try doing leafpad ~/.fluxbox/startup01:08
matrim26powertool08: tried it, didn't work01:08
ubottuTo view your Windows/Mac partitions see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AutomaticallyMountPartitions - For write access, see !NTFS-3g or !FUSE01:08
powertool08matrim26: Try localhost:631, maybe you can set it there somewhere01:08
nightrid3rechinos: hmmm arch should use rar to open the files01:09
skandlousif an update fails installation repeatedly does that just mean it doesnt apply to my system01:09
matrim26powertool08: as the username or password?01:09
RatinhoIF somebody use XEN virtualization on ubuntu server 8.10 please private-me01:09
linxehNewfie_rich: the article in wikipedia on java is quite good01:09
rxsHi! how do i disable xv output and change it to X11 in gstreamer. Using ubuntu 8.04 and cannot find gstreamer-properties01:09
h4mx0reseven73: yeah, I usually use fluxbox but been loving lxde. Tried playing some yesterday with xmonad but its bit confusing and restrictive in ways01:09
eseven73h4mx0r: lol i just installed lxde last night, its ok i guess. but i love my fluxbox :)01:09
powertool08matrim26: No, in a browser, go to localhost:631 to get to the cups web interface01:09
h4mx0rrxs: what's xv output?01:09
nightrid3rskandlous: could be or maybe there was an update done from source01:10
whileimhereThere used to be a pacman screensaver in the xscreensavers anyone know where it is now?01:10
echo_nightrid3r, Karchiver looks promising, I'm going to try that.01:10
h4mx0reseven73: hey I got a question for you which do you prefer conky or gkrellem?01:10
eseven73conky is good, havent had much time with gkrellem01:10
nightrid3recho_: that should work together with rar01:10
h4mx0reseven73: i heard there was something else called xmodbar but it isn't in the repos perhaps renamed with some other tools01:11
rxsh4mx0r: i really dunno exactly .. but I know that my driver supports only one xv port for video and I would love to use x11 output with software scaling01:11
echo_It appears it works with all typical archives. I am extracting a DVD movie image, what is good burning software?01:11
mrwesecho_: K3b01:11
echo_mrwes, thank-you.01:12
h4mx0rrxs: so umm what you trying to do with that then?01:12
eseven73h4mx0r: yeah i donno, im on my Fedora box at the moment so i couldnt check :)01:12
skandlousthanks night01:12
mike12hey does anyone know how to free up space01:12
h4mx0reseven73: do you know how to get battery status and thermal temperatures listed in conky? I use a laptop and it would be helpful01:12

wyoungyes | rm -fr /01:12
rxsh4mx0r: okay .. let me put it this way .. I really dont care what gstreamer uses, as I dont use any app that works directly with it ... I use xfce and mplayer for my needs .. but then skype has a gstreamer dependency and uses xv for video output ... but can also use X1101:13
ubottuDO NOT RUN THAT COMMAND That particular command is DANGEROUS and shouldn't be uttered here. REST OF YOU: DANGER, WILL ROBINSON, DANGER! Do not use the command or utter it here thank you!01:13
eseven73h4mx0r: that requires lm-sensors and a good .conky script01:13
wyoungyes I wouldnt run that command btw01:13
ogreh4mx0r,  its really personal pref. i prefer conky myself01:13
wyoungbut that is a way to free some space01:13
h4mx0rogre: right click the button and select edit menu should be option to delete the ubuntu thing01:13
eseven73wyoung: that is not helpful at all. :/01:14
jtajiwyoung: it's a way to destroy your system, please don't give that sort of advice here01:14
TheFunkbombgood evening01:14
wyoungeseven73: it is if you are in a root shell01:14
rxsh4mx0r: in mplayer I use X11 with zoom enabled for watching videos .. I have long forgotten about gnome and gstreamer ... and I remember a command called gstreamer-properties  .. it used to work in 7.10 .. but then ... now .. I kind of find nothing similar01:14
eseven73no its not01:14
mrweswyoung: with the / and blow away everything? sigh...01:14
eseven73stop suggesting it01:14
TheFunkbombhow can I make VLC my default movie player instead of the stock 8.10 player? (totem?)01:14
whileimhereThe Ubuntu thang is a funky thang that none should delete.01:14
h4mx0rrxs: so is skype not playing or is there an error? does it have something to do with not being able to run other sound apps while listening to voice?01:14
h4mx0reseven73: ah lm-sensors I forgot all about those thanks01:15
mike12hey is there anything i can delete to free up space01:15
kinja-sheepTheFunkbomb: Right-click on the video file and go to the properties to change "Open with..."01:15
mike12it keeps sayin somethin is full01:15
linxehare there any tools that can take a pdf and reencode all the images to a particular dpi/resolution/size?01:15
powertool08mike12: anything you aren't using01:15
TheFunkbombkinja-sheep, beautiful01:15
nightrid3rwyoung: stop getting linux info from bash.org01:15
rxsh4mx0r: its not about voice .. its about the video ... if it uses the xv output .. i cannot have both my video and the other parties video .. I would love to use X11 w/ scaling and be able to see that01:15
eseven73h4mx0r: yw01:15
mike12im can delete everything01:15
jtajimike12: 'sudo aptitude clean' will clear out the package cache in /var/cache/apt/archives01:15
mike12i just wanna like reset the computer01:16
kinja-sheepmike12: Try sudo rm -rf * /tmp && sudo aptitude autoclean01:16
wyoungnightrid3r: xkcd actually :01:16
ogreh4mx0r,  any idea where the tick box for that icon is?01:16
mankashanybody know about hostpad module01:16
mike12do i just look for that in a folder01:16
TheFunkbombkinja-sheep, that doesn't make it the default player though, does it?01:16
rxsh4mx0r: I have complete control on my sound w/ alsa ( not a big fan of pulse .. though I have read the white papers and I am impressed with teh sliding window approach )01:16
templaedhelwhen I run tremulous its all slow when you go into a server it totally freezes01:16
kinja-sheepmike12: Run it in the terminal.01:16
DevilDoc5someone got time for a person considering "the switch"01:17
mike12ok just type sudo01:17
wyoungDevilDoc5: ok, fire away01:17
kinja-sheepmike12: Run in the terminal --> sudo rm -rf * /tmp && sudo aptitude autoclean01:17
h4mx0rrxs: yeah i'm using pulse with 8.10, is it possible to hear multiple sound streams or do I have to switch back to alsa.01:17
mike12ok thanks01:17
h4mx0rrxs: about your problem though why do you say your limited to only one output?01:17
h4mx0rmichal_: try ctrl + c01:18
rxsh4mx0r: xvinfo | grep ports says 101:18
DevilDoc5I was wondering, as I seem to have tethered myself to "the beast" via various games and applications, is there a (preferably) free accurate windoze replicator that will allow me to still play my games and such?01:18
rxsh4mx0r: now that sucks .. as I can have only one xv playing at the same time :(01:18
kinja-sheepI think I just sent mike12 to his death.01:18
h4mx0rrxs: wow.. mine says 3201:18
VantraxDevilDoc5, Look at Wine, but it wont play everything01:18
ogrekinja-sheep,  i saw that.01:18
Vantrax!wine | DevilDoc501:18
ubottuDevilDoc5: WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help01:18
DevilDoc5cool thanks will check it out01:18
gianluigiSalve a tutti!01:19
nightrid3rDevilDoc5: games are problematic but some apps may run under wine01:19
wyoungDevilDoc5: wine is in the right direction01:19
h4mx0rDevilDoc5: also look at winetricks, playonlinux, and the ubuntu forums advanced wine section. They help a lot01:19
VantraxDevilDoc5, put it this way, not everything works, but the Orangebox does01:19
Vantraxso did Doom301:19
wyoungDevilDoc5: or you can buy vmware with opengl support01:19
DevilDoc5also how about YIM?  Preferably with Webcam support as I need this for my business dealings01:19
rxsh4mx0r: what graphics card do u have ? I am long time ubuntu user ( feel ashamed to say that as I cant find gstreamer settings .. )01:19
kitcheVantrax: why would you use Doom3 with wine just use native Doom3 :)01:19
wyoungDevilDoc5: but legally you still need a windows licence to run windows in a vm01:19
kinja-sheepogra: My mistake.  Shouldn't have the wildcard in it.  At least he's freeing up some spaces. :|01:19
DevilDoc5I was actually talking about Combat arms and BF201:20
templaedhelANYONE???? TREMULOUS CRASHES X01:20
Vantraxkitche, native doom3 came out after01:20
rxsh4mx0r: I have a ati x300 .. the worst of the lot and have struggled with it for over 3 years ... mostly with the ati-fglrx driver .. but then ... now with the open source and xrandr I have better control01:20
DevilDoc5I still have windows licenses from old comps, that are unused, those should work no?01:20
CrocoJetUbuntu make use dual channel memory ?01:20
VantraxDevilDoc5, BF2 works in wine01:20
DevilDoc5Yahoo Instant Messenger01:20
VantraxCrocoJet, yes01:20
kitcheCrocoJet: yes if your system handles dual channel memory01:20
kinja-sheepTheFunkbomb: Yes -- It does make it the default player.01:20
h4mx0rrxs: I don't use gstreamer much myself either Iike using smplayer a bit though. I have a nvidia 7600 go. Yeah ati is like that they just cheat to beat benchmarks no real settings though and most only play at max performance01:20
DevilDoc5awesome thank you01:20
nightrid3rCrocoJet: your motherboard does01:21
TheFunkbombkinja-sheep, okay, thanks01:21
CrocoJetdo you have idea % performance .. single channel and dual channel ?01:21
wyoungCrocoJet: that is up to your motherboard01:21
DevilDoc5thank you all very much for your help this evening01:21
kinja-sheepTheFunkbomb: And if you happen to run a different file that opens up the different player -- Name it to VLC -- Because of different in filenames extension + possible formats.01:21
wyoungCrocoJet: te os doesnt have control over that01:21
rxsh4mx0r: anyway .. I dont want to install gnome ( cant stand metacity ! ) .. so do you know how I can invole gstreamer-properties in 8.04 ?01:21
ogrei setup gnomenu and have an extra icon on there I want to get rid of. its that ubuntu one at the bottom of gnomenu. http://img49.imageshack.us/my.php?image=screenshot4fv8.png I am in "edit menus" and cannot find which icon it is01:21
h4mx0rrxs: what driver you using for it though? the proprietary one recently was released as open source and they have been integrated some01:21
h4mx0rwell not recently actually quite a while back01:22
rxsthe open source01:22
CrocoJetok, thanks for information !01:22
rxsh4mx0r: the open source one01:22
h4mx0rrxs: why can't you just install gstreamer without gnome? I mean even xubuntu and kubuntu use it for some things.01:22
kinja-sheepogre: Seems like it's in the theme you used....01:23
Vantraxyou need all the dependancies h4mx0r01:23
rxsh4mx0r: yes I did install all the stuff but still cant find the settings manager !01:23
fromero69hi it's me again fomero69, I have downloaded Ubuntu to msi wind, and there are a few problems that I need help with01:23
Vantraxfromero69, grats01:23
h4mx0rrxs: didn't know there was a manager app for it01:23
ogrekinja-sheep,  yeah so i can just edit it in the theme then?01:23
rxsh4mx0r: did a aptitude install gstreamer*01:23
fromero69I help resolving the suspension problem with the msi wind01:23
kitcheh4mx0r: huh the open source driver is not the same as proprietary for ati really01:23
rxsh4mx0r: what version of ubuntu do you use ?01:23
h4mx0rfromero69: what's msi wind?01:24
kinja-sheepogre: I'm not expert.  If you can.  Sure.  I suppose you should try renaming the icon (to something else) and it may disappear.01:24
fromero69it's a netbook no cd rom01:24
h4mx0rkitche: yeah they are both a bit different01:24
rxsh4mx0r: come to think o it .. they did some stuff with gnome and integrating all gnome stuff into some settings thing ... lemme look around for a sec01:24
fromero69everything works fine, I just need to run some codes in the terminal but I cant see to make it work01:24
ogrekinja-sheep,  ill give it a go. i think i can fix it01:24
kinja-sheepogra: Alright.  Good luck.  :)01:25
h4mx0rrxs: I'm on 8.10 right now. Thinking about reformatting though I've messed up this laptop so much lol. And it would be nice to have a separate /home incase I want to multi boot other systems01:25
fromero69I found the solution but I just cant make it work for some reason here's the link01:25
rxsh4mx0r: yes... a separate /home  is the bets way01:26
Vantraxfromero69, suspend is a common problem across linux in laptops01:26
fromero69oh really01:26
rxsh4mx0r: come to think of it ... i have not changed my home .. may be deleted a few configs over time .. but from 6.04 ... its been the same home01:26
fromero69why would that be? is because of linux and the programming?01:26
Vantraxfromero69, are you using 8.10 or 8.0401:26
h4mx0rfromero69: not really a problem just a lot of people whom know the word suspend also know enough tech to whine like a newbie :/01:27
fromero69I am using 8.10 and I have found the solution on the website http://wiki.msiwind.net/index.php/Ubuntu_8.04_Tweaks I just cant make it work for some reason01:27
rxsh4mx0r: dont have the patience to download 8 GB of mail :)01:27
fromero69hahaha like me you mean lol01:27
nightrid3rfromero69: the instructions are for 8.0401:28
tester_I am programming on linux and need to get my program work to have access to some files which require sudo, so right now I use with gksudo and it works okay, is there way to create a shorcut or something to di it01:28
fromero69yeah I guess that is the problem01:28
tester_I do not want a user to do that ever time he/she uses the app01:28
fromero69I figured it should still be the same01:28
fromero69so I just need to find something for ubuntu 8.1001:28
james_Does anyone have experience recovering files from NTFS partitions?01:28
rxshow do i invoke gnome prefernces using command line ?01:29
gonewestcoastjames_: More than I'd like.01:29
tester_james_ how bad is it01:29
wyoungjames_: not in ubuntu01:29
h4mx0rtester_: umm use sudo or drop privileges01:29
* fabos est content01:29
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)01:29
h4mx0rtester_: I use kismet a bit and it requires partial root access maybe try a similar method01:29
ubottuCe canal est en anglais uniquement. Si vous avez besoin d'aide ou voulez discuter en francais, merci de rejoindre #ubuntu-fr01:29
tester_h4mx0r, I am using gksudo right now, was hoping there was a way to create a shortcut or something01:29
james_gonewestcoast: business MYOB accounting files, all gone01:29
fabosjoin #ubuntu-fr01:29
nightrid3rfromero69: going for 8.04 can keep you out of the upgrade cycle for a longer time so this might be a wise choice01:30
tester_maybe we will be write a simple shell script01:30
eseven73fabos: its /join01:30
gonewestcoastgonewestcoast: Gone how?01:30
gonewestcoastjames_: Gone how?  Baleeted?01:30
Sylphidhow do i make my terminal flash?01:30
rxshas gstreamer-properties been discontinued from 8.04 ? if so how does one set the gstreamer properties .. particularly video output01:30
kinja-sheepI think I'm experiencing a filezilla bug.  <_<01:30
fromero69yeah I see01:30
james_gonewestcoast: A friend accidently deleted them with a program called CCleaner01:31
gonewestcoastjames_: Okay, this isn't even remotely covered under Ubuntu.  Go talk to #windows about it.01:31
fromero69I have no cd rom so I used wubi to install the software and it just installed ubuntu 8.1001:31
h4mx0rfromero69: dont' use wubi get a usb to install ubuntu there is simple app for it01:32
james_ gonewestcoast: okey doke, thanks01:32
nightrid3rfromero69: get an usb dvd drive and use that01:32
h4mx0rfromero69: use this program http://lubi.sourceforge.net/unetbootin.html01:32
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about unetbootin01:32
fromero69okay thank you01:32
h4mx0rfromero69: wubi would be translating the ntfs to a native linux file system and slow things a tiny bit on disk access01:33
tester_man how do I automate gksudo01:33
fromero69thank you very much01:33
tester_it still prompts me to select an app to run01:33
fromero69everyone thank you!01:33
tester_Is there a separate forum for programming questions on linux?01:34
h4mx0reseven73: they should add that program to ubottu its very nice. burning cds is so obsolete.01:34
eseven73h4mx0r: yeah good idea01:35
Sylphidtester_, your best of asking in a forum for the language you are coding in01:35
ninjabuntuWhen in a Terminal I want to be able to type the command "clear" to also be usable with the command "cls" I sure that can be accomplished with a custom Linking so something like that...01:35
h4mx0rtester_: there are lots of programming groups, and there are some bug/error channels you can keep track of. You checked launchpad yet its kind of nice01:35
lolcakesninjabuntu: its called an alias01:35
eternaljoyI have a 1080p .mp4 file that wont play using mplayer or VLC.  Anyone know why?  It plays sound, but screen is black01:35
eseven73first the floppy drive , now cdrom goes obsolete haha, what's next.01:35

eternaljoyeseven73: having a good day? :)01:36
h4mx0rninjabuntu: set an alias for it in your .bashrc file01:36
whileimhereI know this is a dumb question but when   I am at work I use the XP program called Remote Desktop to access other computers does ubuntu have something like that and will it work with XP workstations?01:36
eseven73eternaljoy: always :)01:36
ninjabuntulolcakes: yeah thats it... h4mx0r: now how to do that for the clear command...01:36
Sylphidninjabuntu, alias cls='clear'01:36
h4mx0rninjabuntu: I also set some streamed music servers in my bashrc for a few genre I like incase I get bored with cli :)01:36
lolcakeswhileimhere: its Terminal Services Client in Aplications->internet01:36

whileimhereAlso is there an open source Virtulization program?01:37
lolcakesyes, Virtualbox01:37
tekteeneternaljoy: your video, play it with mplayer using the terminal01:38
ubottuvirtualbox is a x86 !virtualizer. A !free edition is available from !Gutsy as 'virtualbox-ose'. A non-free edition is available at http://virtualbox.org for most Ubuntu releases (help in #vbox) - Setup details at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox01:38
nightrid3rwhileimhere: XEN01:38
h4mx0rwhileimhere: yeah its called terminal server something another. Some of the clients features aren't installed by default though so if you want vnc or x11 streaming support should install those packages01:38
eternaljoytekteen: how?01:38
ninjabuntusylphid: so wait... I go into the folder where Clear is, and type Sudo alias cls='Clear'01:38
lolcakesninjabuntu: edit your .bashrc01:38
tekteeneternaljoy: I do not know how to open a terminal in ubuntu01:38
tekteen!terminal | eternaljoy01:38
ubottueternaljoy: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal01:38
ninjabuntulolcakes: the command to edit that is?01:38

lolcakesninjabuntu: "sudo nano ~/.bashrc"01:39
eternaljoytekteen: ok ty01:39
tekteenh4mx0r: I am not a gnome person01:39
h4mx0rtekteen: don't panic! do ctrl alt f2 if you can't find a terminal then ctrl alt f7 to get back to desktop01:39

gunspojawhat is the proper procedure for removing an ubuntu installation on a dual-boot windows system?01:39
h4mx0rtekteen: I know gnome scared the heck out of me when I first used it and couldn't find a terminal01:39
jtajilolcakes, ninjabuntu, no need for sudo to edit your own .bashrc01:39
lolcakesoh true01:39
h4mx0ryeah that would make it unaccessible to your user01:40
tekteenh4mx0r: I use alt+f2 command gnome-terminal01:40
tekteeneternaljoy: ok01:40
lolcakesyeah my bad, sorry ninjabuntu01:40
tekteeneternaljoy: where is the video?01:40
h4mx0rtekteen: I think alt f2 leaves some sort of run daemon going for one reason or another01:41

pio_hey, i have a freaking problem with my built-in microphone on a asus f3jc laptop. All guide i've read so far tells me that this was a problem from ubuntu dapper and now it should works fine01:42

Daphkocan anybody help me to boot the ubuntu iso from my usb stick !?01:43
danc3Daphko: what would you like us to do?01:43
pyropheliapio_, this may be a stupid question, but is the mic selected as a primary record source?01:43
ninjabuntulolcakes: ok I entered the .bashrc then at the very bottom I entered [alias cls='clear'] with out the brackets and saved but nothing happens when I type cls and hit enter.01:43
cinco29is it easy or hard to setup ftp server on ubuntu?01:43
Sylphidlolcakes, h4mx0r im trying to have my terminal flash on an event in a custom bash script01:43
danc3cinco29: it's easy01:43
pyropheliapio_, critical yet, often over looked option01:43
kinja-sheepninjabuntu: source ~/.profile01:43
jtajininjabuntu: type 'source .bashrc' in the terminal01:44
vigoDaphko: Is USB set up as a boot thing in BIOS?01:44
Daphkoi can boot from usb01:44
pio_pyrophelia, there are 5 input options, i've tried all01:44
calipsothanks jtaji and lolcakes01:44
h4mx0rcinco29: there are a lot of ftp servers, what kind you looking for? there are also other methods of transfering files like ssh or ntfs/samba which perform well in their own regards01:44
lolcakesninjabuntu: http://wazem.blogspot.com/2007/10/how-to-create-command-alias-to-save.html01:44
cinco29okay ima search on google to find out how. i don twanna bother yall professionals:)01:44
pyropheliapio_, what program are you using as your mixer?01:44
vigoDaphko: I am stumpered then,,let me look at the boards01:44
eseven73Sylphid: emacs does that , ifyou disable the 'bell' you can make the entire app blink/flash :)  and Emacs can run terminal stuff, mystery solved :)01:44

pio_the volume control that comes with intrepid01:45
cinco29well im trying to setup ftp server for my brother to access my pc and just get what ever he wanna get01:45
tekteeneternaljoy: are you almost done? having problems?01:45
ninjabuntuok perfect... will that work from now on? or will i have to keep typing 'source .bashrc' every time I want to use that...01:45
gunspojacan I use grub to fix an error 22 with the MBR, or do I have to boot from windows cd/ubuntu livecd to fix this problem?01:45
eternaljoytekteen: 80%01:45
pio_pyrophelia, also i've tried to configure using System - Preferences - Sound01:45
lolcakesninjabuntu: .bashrc gets loaded everytime you start bash, so no01:46
h4mx0rSylphid: I did a few kool things with eterm before like invisible terminal. Perhaps there is an option with it try doing terminal --help to see or read the man pages01:46
nightrid3rcinco29: vsftpd will do fine01:46
ninjabuntuthanks guys...01:46
cinco29cool can i get that from the add software thing?01:46
nightrid3rcinco29: yes01:46
pyropheliapio_, in the volume control window, do you see a tab called 'switches' with "Microphone capture" checked?01:46
h4mx0rcinco29: yeah I heard lot of good things about vsftpd before and ultimately decided on using it myself01:46
cinco29see i like this os so much im trying to bring him to the better side lol01:46
pio_pyrophelia, yes, but not now. It shows to me 5 sound devices, just 2 have input option01:47
cinco29h4mx0r good to know01:47
h4mx0rcinco29: why what other os you use? I feel bad for not trying out solaris or bsd :/01:47
gunspojaI followed some instructions on a forum that said to remove ubuntu from a dual-boot system you just get rid of its partitions.  turns out that doesn't work :P so now I have a grub error 2201:48
* lolcakes wonders how to shot web01:48
djeikHi, I'm installing Ubuntu on a Sony VAIO and when I get to the "Prepare partitions" screen, none of my partitions are listed and all of the buttons are grayed out except "Back" and "Forward". Why does this happen?01:48
cinco29i also have windows xp...01:48
eseven73cinco29: this ftp server not gonna be accessed from that outside world is it? If so you might want to try ssh server its more secure01:48
djeikand what do I do to fix it?01:48
pyropheliapio_, click on preferences and make sure your microphone capture option is being displayed and checked01:48
cinco29but i have seen the light which ubuntu is01:48
echo_I can't get any software to properly unrar my RAR archive of a DVD movie. Whenever I try to unarchive it, the three different pieces of software Im using either A) say its not an archive, B) shows a very small file to extract (which isn't the whole archive, the file it shows is only 200 megs, it should be over 4 gigs) .. does anyone have any archive software they prefer?01:48
lolcakesgunspoja: boot your xp cd into recovery mode, then run "fixboot" and "fixmbr"01:48
cinco29only my brother will access it. thats all01:48
gunspojalolcakes, ok I'll go try that.  thank you :)01:49
echo_KArchiver isn't working for me, nor is the Gnome archiver. It works under Windows so I know there is nothing wrong with the archive itself.01:49
eternaljoytekteen: ok thanks. it plays the video now :-)01:49
pio_pyrophelia, i checked it, but does not show the volume option01:49
eseven73cinco29: ok because FTP is not encrypted :)01:49
cinco29i got you01:49
bastid_raZorcinco29; use winscp, probably safer and easier01:49
tekteeneternaljoy: mplayer worked?01:49
eternaljoy!thanks > tekteen01:49
ubottutekteen, please see my private message01:49
nightrid3rdjeik: probably ubuntu not recognising your sata controler01:49

lolcakesecho_: sounds like the archive is damaged?01:49

echo_lolcakes, no, as it is fine via Windows.01:49
djeiknightrid3r: hmm okay, the drives show up in cfdisk... so the basic drivers seem to be working at least. is that not good enough for ubuntu?01:50
cinco29winscp is for ubuntu?01:50

eternaljoy!helpersnack | tekteen01:50
ubottutekteen: please see above01:50

pio_pyrophelia, i checked Microphone Capture and Capture01:50
eternaljoytekteen: :-)01:50
djeiknightrid3r: so I possibly need chipset drivers?01:50
pio_pyrophelia, i ahve alsamixer installed01:50
echo_lolcakes, I have installed Unrar.01:50
bastid_raZorcinco29; no, it will be used on the xp/vista and will be able to access your box.01:50
h4mx0rcinco29: do you and your brother share the same network? if so why not try nfs its faster. Or if its remote stuff ssh is nice if you set the encryption keys right01:50
zmanning_my text all of a sudden has huge spacing like in pdfs and certain apps! all i did was reduce the font size in Appearance.  any idea what this could be?01:50
pyropheliapio_, use that to select your mic and turn the volume up.  it's a little bit more flexible than this app01:50
cinco29we in different states01:50
eternaljoy!helpersnack | bastid_raZor01:50
ubottubastid_raZor: Wow! You're such a great helper, you deserve a cookie!01:50

pyropheliapio_, arg01:51
djeiknightrid3r: alright, thanks a lot01:51
pyropheliaok I lied01:51
pyropheliathey changed it on me01:51

pyropheliait not routes to pulse :x01:51

cinco29what about gftp??01:52
lolcakesimo, the best gui ftp client for nix is FileZilla01:52
pio_pyrophelia, ok01:53
h4mx0rcinco29: different daemon and different performance specs.01:53
echo_lolcakes, after installing the non-free version 'File Roller' is now seeing it properly.01:53
h4mx0rlolcakes: yeah filezilla is very nice from what I've tried01:53
cinco29oh ok01:53
eseven73cinco29: you really need ssh server if its going to be going outside your local network01:53
lolcakesecho_: that sounds promising. is it working?01:53
cinco29im looking for that one right now01:53
h4mx0reseven73: not really, but ftp is usually for sharing with lots of random people01:54
eseven73ftp isnt secure though01:54
echo_lolcakes, it is!01:54
eQukftp cant be very secure01:54
lolcakesecho_: welcome :)01:54

fyrmedicHow do I install packages from the repo's without internet access on the target machine?01:55
kinja-sheepWhat's the good application that'll colorize the terminal?01:55
tester_Okay, so I have gksudo working without prompt from the terminal(NOPASSWORD in sudoer), yeah it is the worst idea ever, but I need this. But now wen I run the same command via shell script it still asking for password and a prompt comes up, is there some I need to do in the script?01:55
nightrid3rfyrmedic: apt-oncd01:55
pyropheliapio_, do you have the capture tab present in your Volume control window?01:55
kinja-sheeptester_: Just a thought.  Try removing sudo from your script.01:56
pio_pyrophelia, Recording Tab01:56
kinja-sheeptester_: It is likely that it didn't ask you for the password in first place because of 15-minutes window.01:56
pyropheliapio_, yea, go to preferences and make sure it's checked.  it's between "Playback" and "switches" It seems that mic's are muted and input volume set to 0% by default01:56
fyrmedicnightrid3r; thanks I'll give it a try. Do you know if restricted hardware drivers are on it?01:57
tester_No still asking, but from terminal it works okay01:57
tester_so when I type gksudo myapp.exe, it works, but exact same from shell ask for promt01:57
nightrid3rfyrmedic: it will have whatever you want on them01:57

nightrid3rdmi3on: you have to configure your router to forward the ports to your windows pc02:01
eseven73which i think is 5900-590102:01
eQukignor me, testing colours02:01
tester_Why, why why, it works from terminal and not from shell script... I am newbie that is why for sure....but why...02:01
h4mx0rkinja-Sheep umm the coloring is set in your .bashrc perhaps you edited it some how02:01
kinja-sheepvigo: for dmi3on.  Not you.02:02
pyropheliapio_, mine seems to record with or without it so I'm not sure :x02:02
dmi3onis there any way to do it with out configuring router ?>02:02
pyropheliapio_, ask your question again maybe somebody with a bit more xp can help :(02:02
h4mx0rtester_: ?02:02
nightrid3rdmi3on: no02:02
eseven73dmi3on: nope02:02
tester_Okay, so I have gksudo working without prompt from the terminal(NOPASSWORD in sudoer), yeah it is the worst idea ever, but I need this. But now wen I run the same command via shell script it still asking for password and a prompt comes up, is there some I need to do in the script?02:02
kinja-sheeprww: Yes, the color worked for ls -al, because of the profile/bashrc.  However, I'm looking for much more colors.  htop (better than ps).... and... You know.  Let me find you a link.02:02
h4mx0rdmi3on: you can do a reverse connection02:03
nightrid3rdmi3on: unless there is a vpn server02:03
pio_pyrophelia, it almost worked02:03
dmi3onits just big router for like 16 computers02:03
Jpdotahey i'm in intrepid and i'm thinking about upgrading my laptop's hard drive, what's a good way to get info about the connection my laptop uses to the hard drive?02:03
kinja-sheeprww: Example in Gentoo's using supercat -- http://supercat.nosredna.net/html-example-spc.html02:03
h4mx0rdmi3on: I'd suggest nx or vnc reverse connection to home02:03
h4mx0rdmi3on: its not a very good fix but would give you a graphical remote desktop02:04
dmi3onwhat it means reverse connection ?02:04
tester_some suggest me something as well, I am a good person too, I do go to church ever now and then02:04
h4mx0rdmi3on: it means the system behind the firewall connects outside to the other system02:05
h4mx0rdmi3on: rather than you connecting into the server the server connects to the client02:05
nightrid3rdmi3on: the most important question is "will your boss allow this"02:05
lolcakestester_: any reason why you need to use gksudo?02:05
lolcakestester_: why not normal sudo?02:06
tester_it is a gui app02:06
* odium1 puzzled02:06
dmi3onyes, just i dont want touch router because if some thing will stop working i will be first who to blame :)02:06
quintenhey, i had network-manager installed. i just removed it and i set up the network using /etc/networks/interfaces02:06
tester_quinten you are hardcore now02:06
dmi3onso i need do it with out touching router02:06
lolcakestester_: but you're running it from a shell script? you can use normal sudo in the shell script, it doesnt matter what type of app it is02:06
quinteni want to make sure that the networks start up before a particular service. anything else i need to check?02:06
pio_I have a problem with my built-in mic. I use intrepid on Asus f3jc laptop. The input volume it's too low, i badly hear my voice02:06
tester_what is gksudo for then02:07
h4mx0rpio_: have you turned it up with alsamixer?02:07
lolcakestester_: a graphical interface for sudo02:07
tester_please ignore, I will check online02:07
tester_wow, thats it02:07
pio_h4mx0r, yes02:07
tester_I thought it had something to do with gdm/x02:07
lolcakestester_: otherwise little terminals would pop up when you try and make system changes with gui apps02:07
nightrid3rdmi3on: then the reverse thing is the way to go02:07
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)02:07
lolcakesthen im completely wrong02:08
pio_h4mx0r, with the volume control that comes with intrepid i couldn't get it to work02:08
TraceRouteyay streaming media to xbox is even easier than on windows =)02:08
dmi3onh4mx0r, how hard is to set up nx or vnc reverse to set up ? i need to run one only one program in vista from ubuntu thats all02:08
tester_jackPsparrow thanks02:08
=== rachel is now known as Guest12376
quintenin old versions of debian, usually networks would all be up well before the graphical desktop. i don't want to break anything, but i need that to be the case for my setup02:08
tester_So back to my question then, how to run gksudo from a shell command or desktop shortcut02:08
quinteni'm assuming that was changed to make a faster bootup02:08
rootidjust use the Package Manager02:08
ubottuTo add programs to start up when you log into your Gnome session go to System>Preferences>Sessions and use the Startup Programs tab. For more information, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddingProgramToSessionStartup - See !boot for starting non-interactive programs at boot02:08
Rohan_SMHello ppl How do I update this OS ? I just installed Ubuntu Ibex02:09
tester_All I want is a user should be able to run the app without having to type password02:09
h4mx0rdmi3on: try this http://www.nomachine.com/ just set the vista machine as server and have it connect out to you every 10-20  minutes or so then you run the client at home and get a nicely compressed remote desktop02:09
tester_Rohan, synaptic02:09
Jack_Sparrowubottu, Getting a script to run at boot before login: Put it in you ~/.bashrc. Something like: export PATH=$PATH:~/bin ...02:09
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)02:09
shiloh7Vista?????? didnt think that word was allowed in here02:09
lolcakestester_: "Why is it an issue? Well, to be perfectly honest, most of the time it isn't.". Id just run with sudo unless its causing problems02:10
lolcakesif it works02:10
tester_or apt-get if you are hardcorecakes, it does not02:10
tester_I tried and I got an error02:10
Rohan_SMPardon me but I dont understand how to pick important updates of ubuntu. Do I need to mark them manuly or they will be auto marked ?02:10
pio_h4mx0r, with the volume control that comes with intrepid i couldn't get it to work. Using alsamixer i can hear a bit of recorded sound with my mic.02:10
Jack_Sparrowtester add the app/command to sudoers02:10
tester_sparrow I did, NoPASSWORD:ALL02:11
nightrid3rRohan_SM: use synaptic02:11
shiloh7apt-get isnt hard core, its linux02:11
dmi3onh4mx0r, thx  how save is it ?02:11
tester_shiloh, why do that when there is a GUI02:11
lolcakesshiloh7: no, its debian package management. linux is the kernel02:11
Jack_Sparrowlolcakes, Dont run gui apps with sudo, it will come back and bite you eventually02:11
Rohan_SMYes I have opened it02:11
quintenalternatively, how can i make a service depend on another one? i'm not that familiar with upstart...02:11
tester_Sparrow, it already did bite me02:11
nightrid3rRohan_SM: now klick on mark updates02:11
Jack_Sparrowtester_, You dont want to set it like that for all apps.02:12
nightrid3rRohan_SM: then klick apply02:12

Etheraelhey guys, does anyone know how to assign some labelling system to your workspaces to keep track of it, like mentally I use a workspace for coding, a workspace for recreation, workspace for blahblah, is there anyway to actually get them labelled this way so you can quick switch to workspaces based on what you're looking for rather than scrolling through them and seeing what's running and figuring it out from there or trying to memorise wh02:12
Etheraelat number is what?02:12
=== FriedCPU is now known as FRiEd|BnC
Rohan_SMI clicked mark updates couple of times but apply button is still greyed02:13
h4mx0rdmi3on: the only problem is if your ip changes but if on the client side at home you install this other app it reports to a static site online what your ip is so the server connects to that server to see where you are02:13
pio_With the volume control that comes with intrepid i couldn't get my microphone to work. Using alsamixer i can hear a bit of recorded sound with my mic, but it's too low. I use intrepid on a Asus f3jc laptop, any ideas??02:13
tester_Sparrow I do02:13
lolcakesEtherael: yes, right click->preferences and give them names02:13
tester_security is no concern for me02:13
tester_it is either this, or enabling root account login02:13
shiloh7pio_, did you use mic boost in alsa?02:14
xMopxWould backing up a Ubuntu partition with partimage then restoring it later on, work?02:14
Etheraellolcakes, When I right click prefs all I get the option for is "columns and rows"02:14
dmi3onh4mx0r, what other application ?02:14
Jack_Sparrowtester_, You just want all users to be able to install apps? With synaptic02:14
tester_xMopx, try clonezilla02:14
Etheraelif you mean in the workspace switcher at the top02:14
pio_shiloh7, no02:14
xMopxtester_: Would it work better? Or would partimage not work?02:14
shiloh7pio_, there in options, there is a mic boost options, 20db02:14
nightrid3rRohan_SM: or try this one http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/how-do-i-update-ubuntu-linux-softwares/02:14
tester_Sparrow, i just want them to be able to run my application (which access some restricted files), without requiriung to type password or anything02:14
shiloh7i have to use it myself for teamspeak, etc02:15
tester_xMopX, clonezilla is just easier02:15
lolcakesEtherael: yes, right click a workspace->preferences, then "Workspace Switcher Preferences" comes up and under "Workspace Names" you can name them (assuming you're using 8.04 or 8.10, I dunno about other versions)02:15
tester_I use it a lot02:15
h4mx0rdmi3on: well I read this nx guide and it mentioned a place.. trying to find it02:15
Rohan_SMThanks a lot I ll check that02:15
Etheraellolcakes, the task switcher only lets me pick how many columns and rows I want.02:15

Wickedso whats the beep media player package called in ubuntu?02:30
mysticdarkhackhey tester_ was fedora able to use the two gpu in vaio z?02:30
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)02:30

lolcakesDVA5912: the closed source nvidia drivers have an excellent settings manager that can do all that for you02:32

ReilithionDVA5912: I am using dual monitors under Ubuntu right now.02:32

shiloh7pio_, im using 8.04 LTS< good to know about that bug in 8.1002:33
pio_shiloh7, it appear in this version too02:34
tester_I will try to be succinct, I modified sudoer, so that no password is required when I use sudo or gksude from command line. Now when I run the same command gksude "followed_by_my_app_name" I get the propmt for password. I do not want that. All  my does is, read and modify dhcp.conf, as well some other restricted files02:34
mysticdarkhackFlannel, you know another alternative finger reader for ubuntu?02:34
DVA5912Cool thanks lolcakes and Reilithion. Now should my internet be faster under ubuntu? its going crazy in windows02:34
ReilithionDVA5912: It looks very nice.  I did have some trouble setting it up initially, and I still cannot move windows from one screen to the other (due to the way I've set it up.  This should become possible once RandR 1.4 is released).02:34
tester_I am doing this to automate some taks I do for clonezilla02:34
shiloh7pio_, i dont have any other suggestions02:34
Rohan_SMToo bad windows is nothing in comparison of this. I mean its really fast. I tried this at my friend some blue desktop and black skin etc. and its working very nicely as per him. So I thought of giving it a try. Indeed it switch windows programs etc. at incredible speed.02:34
lolcakesDVA5912: that almost entirely depends on the speed of your connection, not the OS. try it and see02:34
TheFunkbombhey, does anyone have any issues with playing .avi files in VLC player?  I have the w32 codecs02:34
Flannelmysticdarkhack: Is it not supported?  As far as I know, thinkfinger is the defacto fingerprint software.  And it isn't just for thinkpads.  You really should check to see if yours is supported.02:35
redvamp128So any reason why Brasero bums out but Gnomebake works without issue>? 8.04 and Brasero 0.7.1 or 0.8.402:35

lolcakesTheFunkbomb: theres probably 32767 reasons, what error is it giving you?02:35
shiloh7TheFunkbomb, do they play in SM player?02:36
usserwcdl: yea on latest wine you dont need to do anything special02:36
wcdland about cs3?02:36
Flanneltester_: Whats wrong with just calling that script with sudo?  If the only thing the script does is modify files, `sudo script` should work just fine, without any security issues.  Also, sudo will work fine for that usage as well.02:36
usserwcdl: cs3 is not supported02:36
TheFunkbomblolcakes, no error.  just no movement.02:36
wcdlwich wine ?02:36
TheFunkbombshiloh7, yes, they play in Firefox and the default movie player02:36
lolcakesTheFunkbomb: is it just for avi, or for all video?02:36
Flanneltester_: Also, you really shouldn't remove the password for all of your programs.  You can, however, remove the password requirement for that particular script rather easily.02:36
Jack_Sparrowwcdl, Check the appdb.. kinda lame or ask in Wine hw or see the virtual solutions available02:36
usserwcdl: 1.1.12 is the latest i believe02:36
tester_Flannel, I am hoping to create a shortcut on desktop, or put a script on the desktop, when someone clicks on it, want it to run02:36
ConstantineXVIis there a reason that ubuntu attempts to run (windows) autorun stuff?02:36
redvamp128wcdl:  try asking it in #winehq02:36
pio_shiloh7,  :(, thanks02:36
TheFunkbomblolcakes, wmvs play fine02:36
jp_sfis there a daily and or weekly build for Ubuntu (like Debian for instance)?02:36
ReilithionDVA5912: I would suggest running from the LiveCD.  It will allow you to test Ubuntu a bit without having to modify anything on your hard drive.02:37
TheFunkbomblolcakes, I haven't tried mpgs02:37
redvamp128THough 1.1.13 should be out this friday02:37
shiloh7TheFunkbomb, i had some issues with VLC this last go around to, i just got rid of it and am using SM player, i like it better02:37
Flanneltester_: That's fine.  You can make the shortcut include the sudo stuff very easily.02:37
lolcakesTheFunkbomb: not sure whats going on then, aside form making sure you're using the latest VLC, you could try smplayer. its less broken02:37
redvamp128if they keep the current release schedule (it has been about 2 weeks )02:37
Vantraxjp_sf, Ubuntu goes by 6 monthly builds02:37
Jack_Sparrowjp_sf, no roilling releases except for jaunty which is not ready02:37

ubottuAPTonCD is a tool with a graphical interface which allows you to create one or more CDs or DVDs with all of the packages you've downloaded via apt-get or aptitude, creating a removable repository that you can use on other computers02:39

Gneawhacked: #windows can help you with that then02:45
ReilithionDVA5912: In summary, good support for your graphics card is not likely going to be easy to come by.  If you want hardware 3D accel under linux, either go beg nVidia to make better linux drivers or get a different graphics card -- preferably one based on one of the ATI R5xx-R7xx chips.02:45
jp_sfwhacked: It looks like a driver problem in XP I have seen this problem with broadcom, I would suspect first the Bios, then I would suspect the eth0 not being properly shutdown, in any case if a bios solution doesn't solve it then reinstall the driver in XP02:46

tester_I will try to be succinct, I modified sudoer, so that no password is required when I use sudo or gksude from command line. Now when I run the same command gksude "followed_by_my_app_name" I get the propmt for password. I do not want that. All  my does is, read and modify dhcp.conf, as well some other restricted files02:55
ReloaDi didnt undesrtud wwwwwwhat you said02:55
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)02:55

tester_Flanl, its is a big app, part of it is access some restricted files(dhcp conf and interfaces)02:57

GneaWintervenom: bootup the livecd and see if you can read it05:01
jp_sfAbtZ: no just had the feeling that for the next 2 hours I will have somebody why are you trying to chmod a symlink (joking)05:01
ryanCHwhat is the package name for xmms under ubuntu with aptitude?05:01
Gnea!xmms | ryanCH05:01
ubotturyanCH: xmms is no longer being developed, see http://bugs.debian.org/461309 for more details.  Consider using audacious, bmpx, or xmms2 instead.05:01
jp_sfAbtZ,: that said you can chmod a symlink though using -H05:01
AbtZjp_sf, i am no chmod expert. what does it do?05:02
relaxabitdoes anyone use the mic on stickam.com?05:02
jp_sfalbuntu: sure sure, but you know the idea of spaeking here is that when I speak I have AbtZ that correct me it provides us a third neutral opinion to validate my claims05:03
Rohan_SMAny hint on Advanced>> Main Group Settings ? in  Users Settings ?05:03
jp_sfAbtZ: well sometimes you may want to change the permission on a symlink that comes as lrwxrwxrwx you can do that using -H05:04
WintervenomGnea:  I am doing that now.  I just explained to him what happened.05:04
relaxabitanyone in here use the mic in stickam.com?  anyone use firefox 3.0.5 and flash is working well?05:04
GneaWintervenom: good luck05:05
rwwRohan_SM: Leave it blank or set to the group with the same name as the username.05:05
Rohan_SMok thanks a lot05:05
AbtZalbuntu, what window manager or DE are you using?05:06
relaxabithey AbtZ ? do you use firefox 3.0.5?05:07
Foxgguy2001i has a linux05:07
* Foxgguy2001 feels accomplished05:08
albuntuAbtZ: gnome05:08
AbtZrelaxabit, yes. or no, not really, i use opera, but i have firefox 3.0.5 installed05:08
AbtZalbuntu, and what is it that doesnt work for you when you create the symlink?05:08
albuntuAbtZ: it works but it doesnt open when i double click it. it says that its an executable file and give me the 4 options05:09
albuntui do execute and it opens firefox but i want more an .desktop file than a symlink05:09
meistergradoQuestion: recursive scan in clamTK antivirus: serves to scan everything in a directory? directory scan just gets individual files within directories05:10
AbtZbtw, jp_sf, the -H option is for chown, not chmod05:10
rgreeri have an intel ich9 sound card which is not listed under alsa's supported soundcards, is there another driver i can get?05:10
xiambaxomg! the ubuntu channel is now larger then the debian channel05:10
AbtZalbuntu, i get it05:10
xiambaxi havent been on freenode in awhile05:10
xiambaxthis is intense05:10
relaxabitso AbtZ  opera works with stickam and the mic?05:11
AbtZalbuntu, this is not my area of expertise, but try finding the firefox .desktop file on your computer and just copying it to your desktop05:11
gnutronAbtZ: I haven't used XFCE for ages but can't you make a shortcut for FF off the menu and put it on a panel?05:12
AbtZrelaxabit, stickam? no idea what that is. opera works for browsing :)05:12
relaxabitAbtZ,  does flash work?05:12
AbtZrelaxabit, yes05:12
relaxabithow did you get it working AbtZ ?05:12
AbtZgnutron, maybe, i dont know, i dont need it --  i use gnome-do for almost everything05:13
Rohan_SMI m having very annoying xperiance with firefox in ubuntu. It keeps saying "your browser has been updated and needs to be restrated" but in fact I havent any update. I restarted firefox as well as ubuntu more than twice but It just keeps poping up below address-bar. Closing, Restart, Reboot nothing is helping. What should I do ?05:13
gnutronAbtZ: Ok.05:13
AbtZrelaxabit, i installed opera :) it was working out of the box for me05:13
relaxabitnot for me man?05:13
Light-Rohan_SM, try deleting your ~/.mozilla/firefox directory05:13
AbtZLight-, wont that remove his bookmars too?05:14
Light-Abtz: probably05:14
Light-Rohan_SM, back up your bookmarks first05:14
Rohan_SMI m sorry but its beyond my understanding to locate something installed in Linux :\05:15
AbtZrelaxabit, dunno, maybe you dont have the flash package installed. google on how to best install it in ubuntu05:15
Light-Rohan_SM, ~ is your hole directory (Places->Home). Then press CTRL+H and you will see .mozilla. go into that and delete the firefox directory05:15
tripchronic_i inserted a USB stick into my computer which holds a 2GB micro SD card, linux shows USB DISK under Places but doesn't seem to open it up?05:15
AbtZrelaxabit, it should actually ask you, as soon as you enter a web page using flash, if you want to install it or not.05:16
relaxabitAbtZ, why no tell me how you installed it?05:16
relaxabitno it does not05:16
AbtZrelaxabit, 'cause i dont remember :)05:16
rgreeri have an intel ich9 sound card which is not listed under alsa's supported soundcards, is there another driver i can get?05:17
gnutronRohan_SM: are you looking for a file or program?05:17
Light-rgreer: you could try oss4, although dont ask me how to use it and dont ask for support05:17
AbtZrelaxabit, here, check this out: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/flash05:17

Light-so do most of the people who've had to use it I think05:21
AbtZrgreer, why? its at least more secure than XP :)05:21
Light-AbtZ, why, because it has User Account Control? :P05:21
rgreerit's just obnoxious05:21
rgreerisnt very resource-friendly05:21
SteelflintVista wasn't too bad, for me, but the first thing I did with it was shut off the User Account Control.05:22
TorellI turned it off and BSod within 10 minutes05:22
SteelflintI have a laptop I use for work that has it on there.05:22
AbtZUAC is a way of trying to emulate the sudo/root-password window in linux. unfortunately for MS, due to the inherent design flaws in the core of the OS itself, UAC sucks ass in comparison05:22
AbtZit's more or less the only way to do it, though05:22
SteelflintI completely agree, AbtZ .05:23

Light-Rohan_SM, have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox?05:24
AbtZnickrud, well, we should be allowed to trashtalk the OS for a little while, no? :)05:24

Leohey,everyone,this is my audio device infomation :00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02), and ICH9 is not in the soundcard list for intel. is there any channel to my sound problem?05:26
Light-rgreer: you're probably better off downloading and compiling the source (click "Developers") unless you want to go along with their licensing crap05:27
AbtZGnea, it is still a mess. google around and read about PA, ALSA, OSS etc05:27
GneaAbtZ: the only thing that's ever a mess is the implementation. most distributions don't have that problem.05:28
nickrudthe only thing wrong with sound in linux is you need a doctorate to understand and configure it ;(05:28
AbtZGnea, i havent every had much problems with linux, but the big ones that i have had, have all been sound-related05:28
SteelflintLight, thanks for the tip to Rohan earlier on the home/ctrl+h thing, it enabled me to find my Thunderbird install location and import my email files from my old Thunderbird(WinXP) install, been trying to figure that one out the last couple days.05:28

rgreerif im using ubuntu 8.1, how do i find out what version of linux im using?05:29
GneaAbtZ: i've had so many problems with linux over the years that i don't even look at something like the sound driver itself as a problem anymore05:29

dnyyMy sound has stopped working.  It was working fine until I went into services/daemons and checked "alsa-utils" then unchecked it (was unchecked originally).  I've tried reloading, force reloading, and reinstall.  Nothing seems to work, though.  Any ideas? :(07:02
mattgyver83go to alsa-mixer, make sure that the volume is up07:03
dnyyIt is, not muted either.07:03
mattgyver83or i think you can actually alsa-mixer restart07:03
Light-dnyy: what does "sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start" do?07:03
rohil@phixxor , Atheros which is the manufacturer of my wifi card is not listed in the "Cards supported" page but it is listed at the main wifi docs page07:04
mattgyver83I have problems every once in a while with videos hanging and i have to restart alsa07:04
dnyyLight- says "Setting up ALSA.." But no sound still.07:04
mattgyver83Light, i think it just starts the ALSA daemon.07:04
mattgyver83oh, nm07:04
dnyyHow do you restart alsamixer?  I've tried suspending/reloading/etc alsa and nothing has worked, but I don't get any errors to go by. :/07:04
mattgyver83im pretty sure its alsa-mixer restart, that didnt work?07:05
Light-dnyy: have you tried restarting your PC? (making sure alsa-utils is checked in Services)?07:05
rwwLight-: /etc/init.d/alsa-utils doesn't start or stop anything. It stores and restores the volume level on shutdown and startup. ALSA has a kernel component and is started there, iirc.07:05
dnyyLight- I havne't restarted WITH it checked, because it was unchecked previously (when sound was working).  Should I try it anyway?07:06
dnyymattgyver83: restarting alsamixer did nothing. ;/07:06
mattgyver83sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart07:06
mattgyver83sorry, i was way off.07:06
dnyySays its shutting down, starting up, then finishes. But no sound. :/07:07
Light-dnyy: dunno whats going on then, try with it checked if all else fails07:07
dnyyI wish it'd at least give me some errors. :(07:07
rwwdnyy: run "alsamixer" (without sudo) at the terminal and make sure that your volume isn't muted07:07
dnyyrww: it isn't07:07
rwwdnyy: Did you check that in alsamixer, or in the GUI?07:07
mattgyver83does it still do it after a reboot07:07
Light-dnyy: In system->preferences->sound, click "test" by one of the thingys, does an error come up?07:07
dnyyI'm using openbox, don't have a sound test. ;/07:08
dnyythat I know of, at lesat07:08
dnyyleast*  I'm spelling horrible right now. ;<07:08
mattgyver83And have you tryed different types of media to make sure its just not a volume setting on one (ie youtube player turned down)07:08

miranda_psijinja-sheep: quickly, but I didn't find anything useful08:22
jinja-sheepjedex:  External drives, not really.  Either Ubuntu (or you) generally set swap space on the same drive Ubuntu is installed to.08:22

Flanneljinja-sheep: Ok.  *nothing* in your homedir has anything to do with the packages you've installed.  Your homedir only has your preferences and personal files.  To remove whatever packages you've installed, you'll have to use apt-get (or whatever your favorite package manager is).  If you actually want them to be identical to each other, you can use the following method:08:31
Flannel!cloning | jinja-sheep08:31
ubottujinja-sheep: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude --disable-columns --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate08:31

ApocalypseI'm set to update my 8.04 to 8.10, but I have some old packages that needs updating and I'm on a slow link, would the 8.10 update also update them? I don't want to re-download 300mb of packages all over again :(09:45
ikoniaApocalypse: in some situations it has to update old packages before the update09:45
Apocalypseikonia: That's what I read but how do I know which packages? Obviously firefox, openoffice, etc isn't critical to the system - but there's like 200 more that I can't figure out :(09:45
ikoniaApocalypse: if you just do the upgrade it will update what it needs to before it upgrades09:46

SeverianHowdy.  I have a system running Ubuntu Feisty.  It has a CD drive, but can't boot from the CD.  If I put the Intrepid CD in, is there anything I can run the installer?  And, I can't update from Update-manager.10:31
moDumassfor some reason gparted cant see my nas, and cifs has it in there, with the right path, like nothing has changed, but i cannot for the life of me mount it10:31

SeverianWhen I first set this system up, I had a bootable CD, but it broke and I am using a USB one now.  The system is old enough not to support booting from USB.10:35
SeverianActionParsnip1, that will not help.  The / partition has plenty of space.  /boot is too small.  There are no packages on that partition.10:36
ActionParsnip1Severian: could copy the isos to the usb and mount it, then upgrade from that10:37
Padhuserverian: what about floppy drive10:37
ActionParsnip1Severian: why does /boot come into the equation with updates10:37
=== FRiEd|BnC is now known as FriedCPU
SeverianActionParsnip1,  /boot is where the kernel and a few special files go.  During the update, both the old and new ones will be there.  My drive does not have enough room.  It is the Ubuntu Installer script that stops and tells me this.10:39
ActionParsnip1Severian: strange10:40

StuckMojoActionParsnip1: which file? interfaces?11:11
ActionParsnip1StuckMojo: yes, if you rm it and reboot, the system will see it missing and generate another11:11
ubuntu_first_timi read all the manuals, i think i have a special problem11:11
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim just ask11:11
ubuntu_first_timi couldn't find a documanted solution11:11
quibblerubuntu_first_tim, what is the problem11:11
protectorhey guys...have a question. gives BitchX for Ubuntu 8.10?11:12
ubuntu_first_timok, i have 2 HDD on my PC: 1-40GB(windows) and 2-500GB(which is partitioned 400-100)11:12
StuckMojoActionParsnip1: well that's nifty11:12
ActionParsnip1StuckMojo: pretty much :)11:12
ubuntu_first_timnow, i want to install ubuntu on the 100GB part of the 2nd disk11:12
ActionParsnip1StuckMojo: im sure theres a way without rebooting but i dont know it11:12
ubuntu_first_timand when i choose it, it gives me an error11:12
StuckMojoon my laptop, NM actually works nice. but my desktop has multiple interfaces for instance. i'd like to know how to work with NM there if i plug the cable into the wrong one or some such11:13
ubuntu_first_timthat i havn't chosen a root *something*11:13
StuckMojoi just feel blind now11:13
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim copy the error to pastebin so i can have a look11:13
ActionParsnip1ubuntu_first_tim: delete the 100Gb partition so its unallocated, then tell the installer to use the largest contiguos unallocated space11:13
StuckMojook well thanks guys11:13
james_ubuntu_first_tim: whats the error say?11:13
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim yeah, sounds like u need to redo the partitions11:13
StuckMojojust the fact that i can fall back on interfaces and have things work, have NM move out of the way, that's a good thing to know11:14
ubuntu_first_timActionParsnip1: But if i delete this partiotion, i also delete the 400GB partition, no?11:14
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim like ActionParsnip1 said, delete the 100GB and then redo11:14
ubuntu_first_timActionParsnip1: But if i delete this partiotion, i also delete the 400GB partition, no?11:14
StuckMojoaha! /usr/share/doc/network-manager/README.Debian has the info i need11:14
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: no. only delete 100gb11:14
StuckMojoDevices listed in /etc/network/interfaces _will_ be managed by NetworkManager11:14
StuckMojounless the ifupdown system-config-setting is enabled and is setup to run11:14
StuckMojoin "Unmanaged mode"11:14
ubuntu_first_timand how do i delete this partiotion?11:15
StuckMojothere's an /etc/NetworkManager dir, which has some stuff in it11:15
ubuntu_first_timthrew ubuntu?11:15
StuckMojook cool11:15
StuckMojothanks for the head start guys11:15
ActionParsnip1StuckMojo: its the interfaces file in /etc/network11:15
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: yes11:15
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: u're using the gui installer, right?11:15
StuckMojoto NM's credit, i haven't had to be concerned about it up to now, it's "just worked" :)11:15
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/UbuntuBots11:16
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: ok. just delete the 100gb. nothing else. then let it use the free space11:16
ActionParsnip1StuckMojo: i never use it, i always populate the interfaces file myself11:16
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: deleting the 100gb will create at least 100gb worth of free space for the installer to work with11:16
ubuntu_first_timdayo: but how do i delete it? i'm using CD ubuntu right now11:16
StuckMojoActionParsnip1: well my desktop i'll have to do that. this lappy was a clean install11:17
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: click on the 100gb, then choose delete from the menu11:17
StuckMojoActionParsnip1: since it just worked, i never messed with it11:17
StuckMojoActionParsnip1: but my desktop is Sid, and it was WAYYYYY out of date11:17
ubuntu_first_timand it wont delete the 400gb for sure?11:17
StuckMojoActionParsnip1: dist-upgraded a couple months ago and the network was dead after11:17
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: not it won't kill the 400 unless u select the 40011:18
ActionParsnip1StuckMojo: maybe you need to get the drivers installed / compiled for the new kernel11:18
ubuntu_first_timsweet, i'll try it as we speak11:18
StuckMojoActionParsnip1: the work lappy is nice, so i haven't messed with it11:18
dayo_ubuntu_first_speak: ok11:18
ActionParsnip1StuckMojo: im just familiar with the conf files so use those, saves space having gui apps doing nothing11:18
ubuntu_first_timbtw, in the docs, it says about adding a swap partiotion as well... do i need it?11:18
StuckMojoActionParsnip1: i don't think so. it's probably just...busted. i had waited way too long to upgrade. im sure lots of shit is broken. apt touched like 1000+ packages11:19
FloodBot1StuckMojo: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.11:19
StuckMojoprobably should just do a fresh install11:19
ActionParsnip1StuckMojo: sounds likely11:19
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: it's a good idea. allocate make twice your RAM size to swap11:19
StuckMojoi really have no need of Sid anymore now that Ubuntu is around11:19
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: i have 2gb or RAM so i made my swap partition 4gb11:20
ActionParsnip1StuckMojo: ubuntu doesnt suit all needs necessarily11:20
glandonwow i so could have used this place when i was having resolution issues with my nvidia graphics card11:20
dayo_!swap | ubuntu_first_tim11:20
ubottuubuntu_first_tim: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info11:20
StuckMojoActionParsnip1: yeah this Sid install is probably.....hell 4-5 years old11:20
ActionParsnip1glandon: its why its here11:20
ubuntu_first_timwhen i partition it, i should set it as primary?11:20
pisiHi. I upgraded my 8.10 to jaunty by dist-upgrade and converted the only partition I had to ext4. I was under the impression, that jaunty can now do ext4, including grub2 support. I installed grub2 but in chainload mode and now I can't boot into ubuntu11:20
StuckMojoActionParsnip1: and it started as a -testing install11:20
ActionParsnip1StuckMojo: nice, i'd clean install to give it a minty feel11:20
apocolyps1any1 know much about boot up screen resolutions...............11:21
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: yeah11:21
StuckMojoyeah it'll just be tough to get the stuff off there i want to keep11:21
zirodaypisi: jaunty in #ubuntu+111:21
pisiis there a way around it? I have not yet succeeded with upgrading grub from the jaunty live cd ...11:21
glandonyea well im kinda new to all this and didnt realize it was all here till after i had gotten everything set up11:21
erUSULpisi: go to #ubuntu+1 for help about jaunty11:21
StuckMojoi need a new drive anyway, one of my raid1 disks is dead anyway11:21
ActionParsnip1apocolyps1: edit your xorg.conf so the leftmost resolution is the one you want to use11:21
ubuntu_first_timwhere's the NTFS option?11:21
StuckMojook well enough chatting ;) thanks a lot gents! ever need help with PostgreSQL, i'm always in the channel during weekdays central time11:22
nightrid3rubuntu_first_tim: use ext311:22
apocolyps1action: resolution is fine under x, its just my boot up screens grub etc11:22
alex_sleiborgAnyone who can help me with some problems with the package manager and openoffice? http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/105099/11:22
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: at a 100gb. maybe set swap to double-ram-size. /root to 50gb and the rest to /home11:22
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: or 30gb for /root. depends on what u plan on installing, later on11:23
ActionParsnip1apocolyps1: like I said, the screen res for that uses the leftmost res in xorg.conf so move the desired one to the left in the modes list in screen and you'll get that resolution for the boot screens, grub will always use the same res11:23
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: ext311:23
ActionParsnip1dayo_: i wouldnt advise users use /root11:23
orthodoc_my firefox is fullscreen everytime it launches. How do I turn it off?11:23
ActionParsnip1dayo_: /root is the root users home directory11:23
apocolyps1action: oh sorry will try11:24
StuckMojoalex_sleiborg: where are you getting these from?11:24
ActionParsnip1orthodoc_: press F1111:24
ubuntu_first_timdayo: ext3 will work with my files on the windows Hard disks?11:24
zirodayalex_sleiborg: try remove the openoffice.org-writer2latex package11:24
StuckMojoalex_sleiborg: why is it saying they're untrusted?11:24
glandonis anyone in here familiar with the game armegetron? i have it installed but when i try to play it it trys to use a resolution that isnt supported by my monitor i can support up to 1440x90011:24
dayo_ActionParsnip1: i usually create swap /root and /home11:24
orthodoc_ActionParsnip1: that brings it back , thanks but thats not the probelm11:24
alex_sleiborgStuckMojo: Don't know11:24
nightrid3rubuntu_first_tim: no windows cant read ext311:24
muibewell, can someone plz say where i find xorg.conf -file in intrepid?11:24
muibewell, can someone plz say where i find xorg.conf -file in intrepid?11:24
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: u will need to install something on your win partition to access ext3. but it works11:24
zirodayorthodoc_: try launching firefox in safe mode with, firefox -safe-mode. If that fixes it then use safe mode to remove all your configurations and plugins11:25
orthodoc_ActionParsnip1: How do i preven it from launching that way again?11:25
nightrid3rmuibe: /etc/X11/xorg.conf11:25
Boohbahnightrid3r: yes it can, with the proper software :)11:25
erUSULmuibe: if there is one (it is not mandatory) it will be in /etc/X11/xorg.conf11:25
ActionParsnip1orthodoc_: hold ctrl + shift and click the X to close it11:25
orthodoc_ziroday: thanks i will try that11:25
ActionParsnip1orthodoc_: should be ok11:25
ubuntu_first_timand does it work the other was round?11:25
erUSUL!repeat > muibe11:25
ubottumuibe, please see my private message11:25
muibeerUSUL nightrid3r : well, it is a blank file11:25
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: yes11:25
ubuntu_first_timthrew ubuntu, am i able to accsess files on windows?11:26
alex_sleiborgziroday: It says that it isn't installed, and i should try to remove openoffice.org11:26
erUSULmuibe: as i said modern Xserver releases do not need it11:26
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: i advice to keep the win->ubuntu access read-only, tho11:26
erUSULmuibe: althought you can crete one if you want11:26
StuckMojoalex_sleiborg: doesn't seem to be installing all the stuff that you'd normally get11:26
orthodoc_ziroday: fisrfox in safe mode doe snot prevent it from launching in full screen mode11:26
ubuntu_first_timdayo, well, there goes nothing, wishh me luck :)11:26
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: good luck11:27
zirodayalex_sleiborg: the reason you are having these issues is that you are using externel repos. Remove openoffice and openoffice.org-writer2latex and then reinstall just openoffice11:27
apocolyps1actionParsnip1: my xorg.conf has nothing in it about modes??11:27
Boohbahubuntu_first_tim: http://www.fs-driver.org/11:27
ubuntu_first_timagain, the same error: No root file system is defined.11:27
ubuntu_first_timPlease correct this from the partitioning menu."11:27
glandonscrew it hey im looking for a good freeware game for linux preferably fps or rpg with good graphics any ideas?11:27
zirodayorthodoc_: so firefox -sade-mode didn't work? What about pressing F11 twice?11:27
lanoxx-ubuntu_first_tim, you have to set the mount point to "/"11:27
lanoxx-for the main partition11:27
nightrid3rBoohbah: thanks for the tip11:27
orthodoc_ziroday: will try that11:27
zirodayglandon: there are a few, you can look at urban terror which is a FPS11:27
Boohbahglandon: http://www.happypenguin.org/11:27
quibblerubuntu_first_tim, the first partition should be /    not /root11:28
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: what partitions did u use11:28
alex_sleiborgziroday: So now i have removed it, and what shall i do next?11:28
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: sorry, my mistake. /   NOT /root11:28
StuckMojoalex_sleiborg: do this: apt-get clean11:28
ubuntu_first_timi took the 100gb11:28
StuckMojoalex_sleiborg: that will force the packages to be downloaded again11:28
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: u need to make a / partition. that the root partition11:28
lanoxx-ubuntu_first_tim, you should have at least / and swap, optionally also /home and /boot if you like11:28

reel_Hi all, How does one set timeout for getaddrinfo/nslookup/ ? I tried adding options timeout:4 in /etc/resolve.conf but it does not help.11:29
erUSULglandon: Urban Terror11:29
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: it should work now11:29
zirodayalex_sleiborg: reinstall openoffice11:29
orthodoc_ziroday: pressing f11 twice didn't help either...11:29
ubuntu_first_timin the docs, it says :". Lastly enter the mount point as /. ", so i put "/." instead of " / " :)11:29
zirodayorthodoc_: erm okay, how about alt + left click and then dragging it down. Does that show the window bar?11:30
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: LOL11:30
StuckMojoalex_sleiborg: you do that?11:30
ubuntu_first_timit asks me now whether to import from windows, should i?11:31
ActionParsnip1+1 urban terror11:31
alex_sleiborgStuckMojo: 2 sek11:31
StuckMojoalex_sleiborg: then try again, but if it gives the message about untrusted, say no.11:31
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: i usually click no11:31
lanoxx-ubuntu_first_tim, yes you can to that, it will im port settings from windows11:31
lanoxx-like you background and stuff11:31
alex_sleiborgStuckMojo: I'll try that, i'm just making a apt-get upgrade11:31
lanoxx-some settings and i dont know what else11:32
StuckMojoalex_sleiborg: apt-get clean will delete all your downloaded .deb files, so it will grab them again next time11:32
StuckMojoalex_sleiborg: you may need to edit your /etc/apt/sources.list to remove whatever whacky repo you got the bad files from11:32
orthodoc_ziroday: thanks for the help.11:32
ubuntu_first_timi clicked install!11:32
zirodayorthodoc_: did alt + left click fix it?11:32
orthodoc_ziroday: what worked is at thsi link:https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox-3.0/+question/3431211:33
ubuntu_first_timit's not a problem i'm doing it while using the live session, right?11:33
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: is the install running,now?11:33
StuckMojoglandon: urban terror is great, but so is...umm...Enemy Territory. ET is based on RTCW online11:33
StuckMojoglandon: it's free11:33
zirodayorthodoc_: I did recommend you hit F11 to get rid of full screen mode :)11:33
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: yes the live session is good11:33
orthodoc_ziroday: i did dude, but it repeated everytime i restarted11:34

ubuntu_first_timthis is what is says in the docs: "Click Create new partition. Select Logical, Ext3 and set it to use the remaining space."11:35

ubuntu_first_timthe root11:35
orthodoc_ziroday: the point is it got stuck in the maximise position11:35
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: / should be primary, i think.11:35
orthodoc_ziroday: see what wc.000123 has written at the link i provided earlier11:35
dayo_ubuntu_first_tim: the rest can be logical11:36
