WebcamWondertemppy: Why do you want to run an antivirus check? You don't need one in Windows01:05
WebcamWonderArggh Linux*01:05
sidneyrunderwo: i think it is installed this is super ubuntu01:06
redvamp128temppy: probably the only way though-- is to install ies4linux and or run through wine using a firefox wine01:06
redvamp128I think that site uses activex01:06
temppyWebcamWonder: to be able to scan a windows partition01:06
sidneyrunderwo: i can see even windows machines01:06
redvamp128temppy:  Though I think in the repository there is clam (antivirus)01:06
WebcamWondertemppy: I know this for sure, that if you gksu your firefox, the permissions on your home folder mess up01:07
runderwosidney: then you need to read about configuring samba.  The network is working, but the server has to be set up and told what shares to make available and who has permission to view them.01:07
biot023Can anyone point me at a guide to help newbies get a fresh install of Ibex's ethernet connection configured/working? I'm floundering, rather.01:07
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about networking01:07
ubottuSamba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments.

ubottunetworkmanager is an application to make (wireless) networking Just Work. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/NetworkManager01:07
temppyredvamp128: no, Im sure about it, it uses java, and running it with root permissions makes it happy.  Thats why I'm trying to figure a safe way to elevate ff's permissions.  At the worst, I'll just create a separate user account01:07

sidneythanks for the links but how can i see if samba is installed01:09
temppyredvamp128: I dunno.  making a separate user account, and gksu firefox seems simpler...01:09
wassy121_sidney: dpkg -s samba01:09

sidneywassy121 thank you01:10
eseven73 temppy its not good to run things as root usually, especially something that access the internet like firefox01:10
redvamp128temppy:  If you check the repository -- they have Clam antivirus01:10
recon69Claire2009: easy way is to "sudo nautilus" to get root access to the folders and change the owner. probably a better way though, has to do with how you mounted the drive01:10
wassy121_biot023: it is the same thing.  Use network-manager, and all your connections should just work.01:10
temppyeseven73: I know, but its the only apparent way.  Consider me warned01:11

Claire2009recon69 - i just formatted it when i copied all my stuff to main drive.01:11
FlannelClaire2009, recon69: use `gksu nautilus` (don't use sudo with graphical programs); and be extremely careful with that nautilus window, and close it as soon as you're finished.01:11
wassy121_6.06?  wow, that is years ago.  I think you need to edit the X config file.01:11

joe_-Stargazer: There's a shoot-off of PuTTy called KiTTy that makes it look nicer01:19

loneljp_sf: yeah i am trying to install slapd,adnd there is no slapd.conf in /etc/ldap :(01:19
joe_-wassy121_: I set it up on the board. It is part of the motherboard.01:19
biot023Hi -- it looks like the network manager does not just work in this instance. I don't think the ethernet is even configured.01:19
lockdwassy121_: Stargazer: I am quite sure that PuTTY is not a Windows-only app01:20
StargazerWassy121_, there's a Putty for X.01:20

dayo_lonel: sudo dpkg-reconfigure slapd01:20
recon69god, wireless and ubuntu is just flaky , got two computer that crash on large dl's01:20
sidneyupon installing samba i get an error01:20
StargazerEseven73, i was thinking something that i could use in Gnome terminal rather than something that resembles Xterm.01:21
joe_-recon69: Weird. Works perfectly for me and it spends all day downloading from Usenet.01:21
ubottuAn explanation of how files and directories are organized on Ubuntu, and how they can be manipulated, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LinuxFilesystemTreeOverview01:21
jp_sflonel: the slapd.conf i in /etc/ldap01:21
wassy121_lockd: Stargazer: wow, you are right.  I never even thought to look.  I run 'ssh user@hostname' from gnome-terminal.01:21
wassy121_gnome-terminal is pretty enough for me.01:21
loneljp_sf: yeah,but its not their after doing an apt-get install slapd01:21

Gerinychi have some sound delays when i'm playing games, how do i fix this?01:22
redvamp128Stargazer:  why not install xterm --should be in the repository01:22
loneldayo_: so a reconfigure will create that file?01:22
dayo_lonel: yes01:22
biot023Are people having more network & wireless problems in Ibex? I've had a couple of happy Heron installs, and not been able to get a single Ibex working fully yet.01:22
recon69joe_-: thought for ages it was just a funky driver for my card, got a new computer and it crashes also. problem must be deeper that wlan driver01:22
loneldayo_: let me try01:22
StargazerRedvamp128, i'm against xterm. can't copy/paste from/to it.01:22
alexvdbiot023: yes01:22
dayo_lonel: i had the same problem once, too01:22
wassy121_Joe_: I read in the past (8-12 months ago) that SATA RAID just wasn't what it is advertised to be, and the "controller card" on the MB just abstracts it out to be software-controlled by windows.01:22
jp_sflonel: I think it is coming from openldap01:22
dr_willisStargazer,  select/ middle click.. to paste..01:22
lockdwassy121_: yes, putty is of limited use on Unix type systems :P01:23
joe_-wassy121_: Huh. That's dumb.01:23
mrwesbiot023: My Intrepid install wireless works fine01:23
loneldayo_: i see,also i got some issues  integrating pam with ldap,did you tried that before?01:23
alexvdbiot023: I have an issue with wireless where I cannot browse local servers or file shares. Wired works and internet works01:23
StargazerDr_willis: and to copy ?01:23
jp_sflonel: don't you have one in /etc/openldap/ ?01:23
BCampbellneurotope:  I see no difference in 32 versus 64 in learning01:23
biot023Right -- I'm gonna try going back to Heron & seeing if those machines are any happier there.01:23
wassy121_Joe_: This is in contrast to a SCSI RAID, which takes the input on one SCSI channel, and the card itself writes the data to both disks.01:23
jp_sflonel: /etc/openldap/slapd.conf.default01:23
dayo_lonel: haven't got that far yet. i'm still new with installing ldap, myself01:23
neurotopeBCampbell: so the 64bit has similar driver / software support?01:23
alexvdbiot023: I am using static addresses which is a a pain01:23
dr_willisStargazer,  once you 'select' it is copied to the 'x selection' buffer..  you then middle click topaste the selection whever.. there are some clipboard tools that can controll how the 'selection' buffer works with the 'clipboard' buffer.01:24
lockdI've managed to fix my OSS problem. I just uninstalled gstreamer-alsa and the Bad and Ugly plugins01:24
loneljp_sf: let em check ,i beleive it is in /etc/ldap01:24
lockderr, installed bad and ugly01:24
loneljp_sf: nothing like that01:24
alexvdanyone seen an issue where you cannot browse local file shares over wireless but wired works01:24
jp_sflonel: you don't use openldap ?01:24
wassy121_neurotope: 64-bit is missing some things like good flash support (though it should be fixed real soon), and some other stuff like proprietary hardware drivers (think nvidia/ati).01:24
wcdlanyone knows how to completely remove photoshop from wine01:24
loneljp_sf: its same ,its known as slapd01:24
BCampbellneurotope:  as far as I can see yes.  I just installed Mythbunutu64 today and everything is running fine. All hardware is working and after running apt-get to install the gnome desktop everything is great.01:24
StargazerWassy121_, epiphany runs YouTube's flash fine... as well as other flash apps.01:25
runderwowassy121_: there are a few good ATA RAID cards, but most of the motherboard stuff is junk.01:25
dr_willisalexvd,  ive noticed that befor inder windows also.. im wondering if some wireless routers/settings block  samba over sireless by default for security01:25
eseven73wcdl: do yo9u have anything else installed in wine?01:25
dayo_jp_sf: slapd is the server in openldap01:25

Fjsswhat version of warsow is in the ubuntu repo?01:25

sidneyrunderwo: thanks01:29
temppyjoe_-: LVM might be what you are looking for, but Im totally unsure of that01:30
eseven73wcdl: have you looked under your .wine folder? It's hidden Ctrl+h to view it if youre using a GUI file manager, or 'ls -A' your home directory on a terminal01:30
joe_-temppy: Haha, yeah I saw someone post that while Googling for it, helped zilch. I guess I can play with LVM and check it out.01:30
dick-richardsonwassy121, if I specify dsa when generating a key...do i need to do anything when connecting, or will it get figured out automatically?01:30
runderwojoe_-: I think you just want a RAID0.  mdtools can take care of that without LVM.01:30
biot023alexvd: I'm too green to have been messing with static addresses, but the other machine I'm trying to get working with ibex won't read the wireless.01:31

myk_robinsonwhat is the default group in Intrepid for Apache2? The webserver is running, but I do not see a group associated with it. Do i need to reboot?02:28
softdavsomeone know how to change the time tor use to change of ip02:28
Aggrav8dgoffio - apparently a reboot fixed it.  i guess I should have tried flushing my dns cache first.02:28
goffioAggrav8d: lol, yes that helps02:28
Gneagofg: it's pretty simple, actually: C: is not a drive, it's a formatted partition. Windows doesn't see C: until it has formatted it. /dev/sda is the name of the whole first disk. /dev/sda1 is just the first partition. C: can be a partition, but not the whole disk.02:29

Lamerionugh which channel i can ask about www technology stuff02:30
dr_willisgofg,  windows tends to use the term 'drive' where linux would use the term 'filesystem'02:30
Gnearww: restart the system02:30
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ext202:30
gofgGnea, oh, that's easy. External disks can be mounted to /dev/sdb or /dev/sdc, and they are by default, but that's just for naming convenience. You could mount to anywhere.02:30
lstarnesLamerion: mayve #www02:30
ubottuext3 is the default filesystem on Ubuntu, and the most popular on Linux. You can read/write from Windows to ext3 via http://www.fs-driver.org02:30
Lamerionits invite only02:30
rwwGnea: well duh. Does anyone know how to make that "System restart required" icon go away without restarting the system?02:30
Gneagofg: wrong, /dev/whatever is just the name of the devices, they aren't mount points02:30
dr_willis<somedrew> http://www.fs-driver.org  works decently well.. but i always disable/unmount the linux volumes befor i exit windows. just to be safe02:30

softdavi need someone who use tor02:35
zashicloser to what installing the kubuntu dvd would provide02:35
Gneazashi: 'more complete'?02:35
rwwrunderwo: Yup. Looks like that plus deleting /var/run/reboot-required did it. Thanks :)02:35
Gneazashi: aaah.. well that would probably install everything under the sun02:36
goffiozashi: i can think of ubuntustudio, ubuntu ultimate edition, and other "subdistros" is that what you mean?02:36
AeonisI'm ran that command and my Ubuntu shut down to some kind of screen wit ha lot of >26 or something like that and wouldn't do anything else.02:36
Gneagoffio: no, he's talking about every last piece of software available on the dvd02:36
ActionParsnipzashi: sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop gives you the exact same apps / system as the kubuntu dvd, if you log out of gnome, change your session to kde and log in, its identical in every way02:36
AeonisBefore, I just went to tell my computer to see the driver for my video card and then enable it.02:36

ActionParsnipAdam_: whats it do?02:39
rwwzashi: kubuntu-desktop, ubuntu-standard and ubuntu-minimal will, between them, install everything that would be installed by a regular Kubuntu desktop install.02:39
Adam_it's a quickboot bios option that gets you into internet/skype like 5 seconds after powering on02:39
zashirww, thanks. that about perfectly answers my original question.02:39
Adam_its an option on asus motherboards for linux, just wanted to know if there was an alternative for non asus mobos on ubuntu02:40
AeonisBefore, I just went to tell my computer to see the driver for my video card and then enable it.02:40
ActionParsnipAdam_: theres bios linux which is quite risky but puts the kernel and some modules in bios so your system boots faster02:40
ActionParsnipAdam_: never heard of that02:40
Jack_SparrowAdam_, Are you talking about the new mb's with the onboard chip..  There is no alternative02:41
ActionParsnipAdam_: sounds like its very specific to the hardware02:41
Jack_SparrowAdam_, most new boards in 2009 are supposed to be adding them02:41
Adam_ah okay.02:41
ActionParsnipAdam_: theres magnetic ram (i think its called that) coming soon which will act like an SSD on the mobo so will be really fast for boots and access02:42
jbuncherCan anyone tell me what exactly ubuntu runs (with gnome) that xubuntu doesn't that makes xubuntu/xfce "lighter weight"?  I'm asking about background processes and such, rather than installing abiword/gnumeric instead of openoffice.02:42

dr_willisjbuncher,  xubuntu dosent run all the gnome stuff. that whats make it lighter.  install gnome on xubuntu and run gnome - and its the same.02:44

ruffles_chaorain:look for the private message bellow03:51
Area300<IndyGunFreak> i have 4 monitors03:52
biouserThe following packages are BROKEN: ubuntu-desktop03:52
trinitronxScunizi: I think if you have a backed up ~/.gnupg folder, you can just remove the pubring.gpg/secring.gpg and replace with the old ones03:52
neil_drunderwo: having a hard time find forcecheck file03:52
IndyGunFreakArea300: ok, well, thats irrelevant i would think you can still set the res in nvidia-settings03:52
rogermuddusser: I'll give it a shot. Have you done this? I can't believe it's not baked into the OS. I know it's on the Ideastorm (?) web site.03:52
trinitronxScunizi: if you don't have those backed up... you might be screwd03:53
linxehwhen is the next LTS release due ?03:54
usserrogermudd: theres these permissions on every file in linux: owner - the user that creates the file, group - his primary group, and other - everybody else umask of 002 gives owner and group read/write/execute permissions on every file he creates, and setgid sets the default group id of a directory to a group that you create and of which all users are part of. so that any member of that group has all permissions in that directory03:54
Area300<IndyGunFreak> yes you are right that makes it very easy. the problam i am haveing is this. the resolution 1280x1024 does not show up for this one monitor. it is the same as the others. oddly enouf it is monitor 3.03:54
usserrogermudd: i tried something like that yes03:54
IndyGunFreakArea300: hmm, that is strange03:54
Area300<IndyGunFreak> it dosnt even give me a manual option to change it and only Hz it will run at is 6003:54
Area300<IndyGunFreak> yes very.03:54
usserrogermudd: only i didnt use setgid, i simply set my users primary group to the one they are part of.03:54
LLHow do I know for sure that the recommended video drivers are activated? Using "Hardware Drivers" I'm unable to activate the recommended driver (or so it seems). Nvidia accelerated graphics driver (version 173) [Recommended]03:55

IndyGunFreakLL: why can you not activate it?03:55
Area300<IndyGunFreak> i am new to linux. this leads me to bleave i need a second set of eyes looking over my xorg.conf . It very well could be a mestake I have made getting two 8600gt's to work at all lol03:55

SingAlongHI all!03:56
cs70wbdhi.  My name is Hung.  I just have a little question about ubuntu.  I edited the ~/.profile to include two variables that I want whenever I log on.  The variables are basically the path of about 8 folders.  After I changed the file, I logged off, and then logged back on.  When I get back on, the folder's colors changed, and the kde's menu at the top look weird.  Restarting worked, but this keeps happening.  Any ideas?  Thank you for your time.03:56
Area300<IndyGunFreak> ok. thanks for trying03:56
SingAlongI tried install the Aurora GTK Engine from the downloaded pacvkage03:56

ryanhaigh1hi all, just moved my ~/ to a new partition and everything is working EXCEPT for my trash, the icon on the desktop shows empty trash, opening it in nautilus (using gnome btw) shows it as empty, browsing to ~/.local/share/Trash/files shows all my trash. anyone have any ideas what could be going on, im guessing this is a nautilus issue?03:57
usserdano_: synaptic uses root theme03:57
SingAlongI did ./configure after untaring Aurora GTK Engine. IT worked. BUt later when I do "sudo make install". The error says "no rule make 'install' "03:57
usserdano_: which is different from yours03:57
rogermuddusser: No. I appreciate the help. I've been trying to get this going for a while. Can never seem to get it going, though. It's a necessity, however, as I share the machine with my wife and she would like to have access to photos and such. No need to have copies in each user's directory. Again, wish it was baked into the OS. Windows and OSX do it out of the box. I think it should be a priority for Ubuntu.03:58
IndyGunFreakLL are you sure its not telling you you need to restart after activating it?03:58
dano_usser, thanks, do you know how i can make my root theme match me user theme03:58
caboose-smcan someone help me with partioning for the installer03:59

SingAlongwhat does this error mean "*** No rule to make target `install'  "03:59
Anacranomusser, need to make a common group and add all needed to it, set umask how you like but o dont personally care for 022 on a shared issue, 007 is my pref, then chown the common with user:common-group and then chmod that dir with 77003:59
grendal_primeuse the CORRECT fingers04:00
IndyGunFreakLL: that would be my suggestion, most of the time when you activate a restricted driver, you have to restart04:00
Jack_SparrowJoker_-_, Is this a regular keyboard04:00
LLI am sure I have to restart, but I was expecting more of a helpful hint than absolutely nothing! See you guys in about 5 minutes.04:00
Joker_-_Jack_Sparrow: not your usual keyboard no, it's a USB Logitech G15 (gaming keyboard)04:00
usserrogermudd: thats not going to change anytime soon though, since those are unix permissions and changing that model would break the POSIX compatibility04:00
Jack_SparrowJoker_-_, Ok, then no04:00
Joker_-_Jack_Sparrow: then what no?04:01
Joker_-_Jack_Sparrow: there is no way to get that numpad to work?04:01
usserAnacranom: yea but new files created in that directory would be chowned to the primary group of each user not the common one, aren't they?04:01
rogermuddusser: OSX does it with a UNIX foundation. Should be possible.04:01
Jack_SparrowJoker_-_, Then.. since it is usb logitec,, No, I dont have an answer04:01
danfgmy keyboard layout keeps resetting, i have to install another one and remove it to "snap" it back to work. what's up with that?04:01
ubottuKeyboard shortcuts can be set in System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts. If your multimedia keys don't work with that, try the 'keytouch' package, explained at http://keytouch.sourceforge.net - See !Keyboard for changing layouts04:01

ushimitsudokiJoker_-_: I have G15 numpad works fine nothing special is required04:02
ushimitsudokiJoker_-_: sometimes you have to press NumLock on/off even though the light is on ...04:02
Joker_-_ushimitsudoki: strange, I've done nothing special... it's a fresh 8.10 install04:02
ushimitsudokiJoker_-_: that's all04:02
Joker_-_ushimitsudoki: wow, true04:02
usserrogermudd: osx is one mess of a unix, case insentivity is one big issue04:02
Scunizi_Joker_-_, does the keypad act like a mouse.. does pushing any of the outside numbers and hold them make the mouse move?04:02
trinitronxrogermudd: if you are trying to share files between users, add those users to a group, and then change group permissions to read (or read/write if you need both)04:02
Anacranomusser, thats why you set at the directory level04:02
Joker_-_ushimitsudoki: wow... so stupid of me, the numpad was lighted, but still it wasnt working, pressed it twice and poof04:02
Joker_-_ushimitsudoki: it just works04:02
usserAnacranom: with setgid?04:02
ushimitsudokiJoker_-_: yeah, it's a bit of a annoyance04:02

rogermuddtrinitronx: The issue then becomes all files created at a future date. They get different permissions applied (more restricitive). Ultimately, I think ACLs are the issue.04:04

MakuseruHi, i seem to be having a problem. Im having resolution problems, and in the past ive always used "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" to set my resolution. But this time when i tried that command it started up fine, went though a few of the first steps, and then it got to the keyboard setup, after the keyboard setup finished it just closed (instead of going to the next step which is graphics configuration). What would cause it to skip all04:10
Makuseruthese steps and just terminate after the keyboard steup, and how could i go about fixing this?04:10
MrPocketstest you ever set a root password?04:10
trinitronxrogermudd: yes, that should take care of all files created by your user... it will mask off the last bit (the "others" permissions to only r--).  Make sure for security reasons you don't set root's umask to that!04:10
RDovepeepsalot theres a program called automount04:10
Jack_Sparrowtest Please setup root access as I showed you04:10

nickrudsonoblaise, enjoy. With ubuntu, you should only need to learn as you go. If you lose your mouse (not likely, but I couldn't actually test that xorg.conf) let me kno0w07:26
cweigleok that didn't work07:27
dmann8t, just pasted07:27
cweigleit said could not instantiate smbios table07:27
n8tuserdman -> if that was for me, complete my whole nick so i can detect it07:27
etsmbut i think it's a drivers issues.  The card is Artheros 5007. I have search over the internet but i didn't get any driver compatible with this card. May be if you know any link that i can download drivers to figure out this issue.07:28
sonoblaisenickrud, that wont be right now: I'm running low on battery and my AC adapter is at home and downloads ar on the way... but if you can tell me what the device and protocol options represent it would help me really understand :)07:28
cweigledoes anyone know anything about fixing an smbios error07:29

Bikeguymiranda_psi: any idea on why mplayer is opening so slow though/08:15
jken146tenang, Usually you just download a theme from gnome-look.org, then drag the archive to the Themes tab in System -> Preferences -> Appearance08:16
miranda_psiBikeguy: are you using the default mplayer from the repository? 1rc2?08:17
scienteshow do i prevent X from recovering me back to my X terminal everytime i try to go to a text terminal?08:18
jken146scientes, if I understand you correctly, you'd have to stop the x server: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop08:18
scientesi do ctrtl-alt-f108:19
scientesbut X grabs me back08:19

tommiHi! I have a problem with suspending my system. When I try to suspend it, it shuts down completely, and when I turn it on again it boots straight to my desktop with an error messages that says there was a problem suspending the system, nothing else. Any ideas? How can I found out what's wrong?08:31
PeoplesAdvocateAnyone know of a great book to learn about Linux in general, mainly on how everything works? I already purchased the Ubuntu Linux Bible from amazon.08:31
snuxolltommi: is this on a laptop or desktop computer?  what is the make and model (assuming it's an OEM machine)08:32
jken146PeoplesAdvocate, learn as you go.  google is your friend.  Find something you don't know how to do and learn it.08:32
tenanghey jken maybe this might help you help me here's where it came from http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Overglossed?content=7481308:32
rww!documentation | PeoplesAdvocate: not sure about books, but these sites are useful to me08:32
ubottuPeoplesAdvocate: not sure about books, but these sites are useful to me: documentation is to be found at http://help.ubuntu.com and http://wiki.ubuntu.com - General linux documentation: http://www.tldp.org - http://rute.2038bug.com08:32
jken146tenang, did you follow the instructions on that page?08:33
PeoplesAdvocateYeah, I have many great sites but I wanted books for my library08:33
demizerth ubuntu bible is very good in itself08:34
PeoplesAdvocateI appreciate your answers though I will list those sites for reference.08:34
demizerI have not read any books myself, I have learned everything from google08:35
PeoplesAdvocateYeah I like the book, Im tryna convert my friends so I try to through material at them that will help them learn with more ease08:35
demizerwell, i have reade the ubuntu bible08:35
snuxollsince he's not resaying it here08:36
snuxoll<tommi> It's HP Pavilion dv6615eo laptop computer08:36
snuxollI've always had bad experiences with HP desktops, anyone else got some info on his suspend issues?08:36
demizergive your friends some live cds08:36
PeoplesAdvocateI did08:36
demizerI have suspend issues with my dell08:36
demizeryou're awesome08:37
demizerhow do they like it?08:37
snuxollsuspend works quite well on my machine, video drivers are the most probable cause of issues and since I run the open source ATI drivers...08:37
PeoplesAdvocatethey like it but have trouble learning where everything is at.08:37
snuxollbut mine's an older dell, so :/08:37
tenangyep followed the directions 1-408:37
PeoplesAdvocateits really easy but they are not to computer literate08:37
demizeryeah, finding everything was hard for me at first too, but you'll get used to it08:38
demizeror they08:38
biouserYAY!  I upgraded from 8.04 to 8.10 and my PulseAudio + ekiga problems are VERY MUCH better!  Nice, ubuntu can come back out of the doghouse and go back to being the greatest thing ever!08:38
dayo_PeoplesAdvocate: http://www.linuxhaxor.net/2007/09/05/68-linux-related-free-e-books/08:38
tommiI use the latest nVidia driver.08:38
PeoplesAdvocatecool, thanks dayo_08:38
dayo_ PeoplesAdvocate: u're welcome :-)08:38
biouserI think that the newer Pulse Audio is way better from what I see already :)08:39
demizerI have tried all the distros, and ubuntu worked the best, so they are off to a good start08:39
tommiBut suspending has worked on this very same laptop the last time I had Ubuntu installed on it, about 2 months ago...08:39
biouserpeople might suggest that audio problems might be improved by moving toward the bleeding edge?08:39
bootcamp911ogg audio format good or not ?08:39
snuxollbiouser: pulseaudio itself hasn't changed.  Ubuntu just configured it better (aka: not horribly wrong)08:39
demizerogg is better than mp308:39
snuxollbootcamp911: better than MP3, but the lack of standalone portable media players that support it is a downer08:39
demizerthe only problem is very little player support08:40
MartianWI have a pdf music score which has two pages per A4. Is there any way to split and rotate them so that each page is on it's own A4 page?08:40
demizerit does work with rockbox, however08:40
bootcamp911how about Iriver? > snuxoll08:40
snuxollbootcamp911: I keep most of my music in MP3's encoded with LAME -V008:40
biousersnuxoll seems to be a lot of potential but that doesn't mean that I can put up with TOO much flat-out brokenness08:40
bootcamp911ic > demizer08:40
bootcamp911i am a newbie in portable audio08:41
snuxollI'd rather use AAC personally, but it's too painful to rip to it under linux08:41
demizertrue that08:41
snuxollsince my phone, iPod, wii, etc all play MP308:41
VieQhi all, I am here (http://kubuntuway.net/forum/showthread.php?t=241) and Still Can't figure out how to use the repos. because the "deb" command was not Found :)08:41
bootcamp911how about FFFFFFFFLLLLLAAAAACCCCC ?08:41
snuxollbootcamp911: flac is good for archival, not playback08:41
demizeryeah, I didn't like rockbox much over the original ipod firmware08:41
snuxolldemizer: rockbox doesn't even run on my classic08:41
demizerflac is very high quality, large filesizes08:42
demizeric, I have 5th gen08:42
snuxolldemizer: I see no need to bother with it though, I really could care less about OGG support myself08:42
bootcamp911MP3 good for u > snuxoll08:42
VieQany suggestions?08:42
demizeryes, mp3 work just fine. :)08:42
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about gnome-pilot08:43
bootcamp911but i will obtain Ubuntu default OGG08:43
nikolamHello, what should I do if apt/dpkg is stuck like this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/105072/08:43
snuxollbootcamp911: like I said, I use mp3's encoded with lame -v0, the audio quality is as good as it gets for MP3 while being about the size of a 256Kbps VBR MP308:43
rwwVieQ: Those aren't commands that you run. They're lines that you put into your /etc/apt/sources.list file08:43
joerackHello, can you help me? My pc speakers aren't working anymore08:43
demizerare they plugged in08:43
VieQrww, thanks for the tip08:44
bootcamp911ogg = less support or = no support in future ?08:44
demizerI could'nt resist08:44
VieQbut will that work without the GPG key?08:44
snuxollbootcamp911: I wouldn't say no support in the future, but for now not much supports it08:44
snuxollbootcamp911: I mean, there *are* devices that support it, and if they appeal to you then OGG is by far the best choice08:44
lonelhi,any one here using a webmin can share their webmin,pam.d file?08:44

snuxollbootcamp911: I know that cowon players are ok, I don't like them myself but I know a lot of people that do08:45
snuxoll!webmin | LoneWlf08:45
ubottuLoneWlf: 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.08:45
bootcamp911well, how about WMA vs AAC ?08:45
snuxoller, lonel ^^^08:45
snuxollbad tab complete08:45
lonelhi,i cant login after i configured webmin08:45
snuxollbootcamp911: WMA is absolute garbage08:45
demizerbootcamp911: AAC08:45
demizersnuxoll: YES08:45
demizerbootcamp911: don't ever use wma08:46
snuxollbootcamp911: AAC is by far my personal favorite, but it's a pain to rip under linux without dipping down to the shell or using some obscure app to do it (because gstreamer can't mux a MP4 container to save its life)08:46
Kuroneko-chanum. can someone help me?08:46
* snuxoll kicks gstreamer in the shins08:46
snuxollKuroneko-chan: I'm sure we can, what's your problem08:46
bootcamp911absolute garbage ???08:46
=== tweak is now known as totallystumped
demizerbootcamp911: proprietary08:46
rwwnikolam: Looks like update-initramfs isn't happy about the "2.6.28-rc1-custom" kernel you appear to be using. Considering that's an unofficial kernel, you'll need to go to wherever you got it from to get support.08:46
joerackHello, can you help me? My notebook speakers aren't working anymore08:46
snuxolljoerack: did you check your volume levels in the mixer?08:47
nikolamrww i never installed that kernel08:47

bootcamp911but i never seeing this format in Linux...08:48
dayo_Kuroneko-chan: what is the exact Error?08:48
snuxolljoerack: maybe you're having pulseaudio conflicts, have you tried rebooting the machine?08:48
demizerrestart the sound system08:48
Kuroneko-chanAn error has occurred during partioning.....nothing fancy lol08:48
demizersudo /etc/init.d/alsa restart08:49
rwwnikolam: Well, something thinks that you have, since initramfs is looking for it. I'd probably start by removing some of the unofficial repositories you have installed and seeing if that helps. Considering that at least two of them are repositories for a different (albeit Xubuntu-based) distribution, though, I doubt we'll be able to help you much.08:49

ruhaan_jslipnothin works09:05
DelvienWell i keep seeing things about docky, but have yet to find how to get it.09:05

Delviensnuxoll: i see, guess ill be building it from tarball then09:06
snuxollDelvien: the only way to get it is to manually get the sources for Do from launchpad and compile it yourself, which is something I don't reccomend, especially since docky is still alpha09:06
PC_Nerdkoshar2: so would that mean taking the ubuntu~.iso and simpyl making the usb bootable? (in which case it is possible to remove the "bootable" from teh usb for storage again yes?)09:06

ubottubouma: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. You can search https://help.ubuntu.com or http://wiki.ubuntu.com while you wait. Also see !patience09:19
acidicbasemaxagaz: in console type grub09:19
Delvienbouma itouch has next to no support in linux.09:19
snuxollbouma: all I can tell you is to jailbreak it at which point you can access the filesystem via SFTP, from what I've heard09:19
acidicbasemaxagaz: find the desired root u want to use09:19
snuxollbouma: this is not a practice I, nor Ubuntu support, however09:19
Slartbouma: try typing !ipod here in the channel.. not sure if that can be used for an itouch too but perhaps09:19
acidicbasemaxagaz: set the grub to use that09:19
Delvienbouma blame apple and their crappy way of business.09:19

ikoniaDelvien: please don't make such a general comment09:21
boumaok thanks09:21
ikoniaDelvien: rockbox works for many people09:21
snuxolldelcoyote: I'm simply saying that Apple's business practices are just fine, people's expecations aren't :)09:21
acidicbasemaxagaz: correct one is suse and one is wtvr other OS u installed09:21
boumawell i wouldnt mind09:21
snuxollikonia: rockbox doesn't work an an iPod touch09:21
boumai mean i cant find the firmware images to patch09:22
ikoniasnuxoll: no, but rockbox is fine09:22
Delvienikonia what snux said, and "works" is barely the word i would describe it as.09:22
snuxollbouma: again, I don't condone it, but jailbreak it, that's the only way you'll be able to do anything09:22
Guest38066rww i didnt meant to english ....i meant to SSH,OS/distro...09:22
boumaDelvien: thanks, well so can i dd to it ?09:22
ikoniaDelvien: for you, others find it fine09:22
DelvienDoesnt GTKpod work with a jailbroken itouch?09:22
=== chilli0_ is now known as chilli0
snuxollDelvien: I believe libgpod does, yes09:23
maxagazacidicbase, i first installed ubuntu, then i installed suse on a different partition, and suse installed a grub which runs before the grub of ubuntu09:23
Delviensnuxoll Well thats good. *pats his Android phone*09:23
PC_Nerdikonia: basically explaining why I wanted to run ubuntu serve rnot desktop ( since you said "ubuntu desktop makes a great server" - which  im not disputing, jsut personal preference)09:23

GianponHi everyone. I know it is not the right place to ask but I did'nt find a better one. How can I fit an html cell in a table with the content? My problem is not weight but height. Thanks.09:24
acidicbasemaxagaz: Suse's grub should auto detect ubuntu09:24
Delviensnuxoll It's nice09:24
maxagazacidicbase, it did09:24
snuxollDelvien: am quite happy with Symbian S60, kthnx :)09:24
boumaikonia: so can i install rockbox on my itouch ?09:24
ikoniaPC_Nerd: ahh I see09:24
acidicbasemaxagaz: so whats the problem?09:24
snuxollbouma: no, you can't09:24
maxagazacidicbase, but it detects the grub of ubuntu actually09:24
rwwGianpon: Ask in #html. This channel is for Ubuntu Linux support only.09:24
ikoniabouma: I don't know, snuxoll suggest it doesn't work09:24
Delviensnuxoll to each their own, personally i think symbian is a piece :p09:24
ikoniaDelvien: I'd advise you to listen to someone who has done it or knows it won't work09:24
ikoniaDelvien: sorry - not you09:24
ikoniaDelvien: typo09:24
acidicbasemaxagaz: so you just select ubuntu -> ubuntu grub -> ubuntu? Its just one extra step09:25
ikoniabouma: that was for you09:25
acidicbasemaxagaz: if you want to change that behavior you would need to look into your /boot/grub/menu.lst in suse09:25
Gianponrwat rww: thak you09:25
Delviensnuxoll hmm i must be missing something, compiled alpha2 of gnome-do. No docky09:25
maxagazacidicbase, the problem is that when i run my laptop, i have to choose ubuntu, then it goes to the grub of ubuntu where i have to choose ubuntu again09:25
boumasnuxoll: i may just try rtfm, for a bit, but i you know, have you tried to install roxbox on a itouch ?09:25
maxagazacidicbase, i want to get rid of suse09:26
snuxollbouma: the rockbox website doesn't list compatibility for the iPod touch, so I assume it's not possible09:26
maxagazacidicbase, and its grub09:26
rwwsnuxoll, bouma: It's not.09:26
acidicbasemaxagaz: so you don't want suse at all? Then just reinstall grub again09:26
snuxollbouma: I haven't dealt with jailbreaking them either, but there are quite a few guides a quick google away09:26
acidicbasemaxagaz: find out which partition you setup ubuntu09:26
Delvienbouma The itouch firmware is good stuff, you will not want to install rockbox, first rockbox doesnt support touch input on the itouch, and is meant for older (only older be generations) ipods.09:26
sajuukhey guys im trying to migrate my ubuntu 8.10 server to a brand new hdd, I have geparted up and linux sees the destination hdd, how do I do what I want to do?09:26
acidicbasemaxagaz: i'm guessing you probably did it on hd109:27
snuxollsajuuk: are you just trying to clone the disk?09:27
ikoniasajuuk: I'd advise you to install ubuntu server onto your new disk, then migrate your data across09:27
SourceCan I boot with grub if I'm using XFS?09:27
Delvienbouma secondly, look up jailbreaking your itouch and using it with libgpod (as stated by someone in this channel) or GTKpod09:27
snuxollSource: only if your /boot is on a non-xfs partition09:27
Delvienbouma when I had an ipod i used GTKpod, it worked well.09:27
acidicbasemaxagaz: so just follow the step above: sudo grub , root(hd0, 1), setup (hd0), quit09:27
Sourcecan I reiserfs in my /boot?09:27
ikoniaSource: I would suggest ext3 for compatability09:28
snuxollSource: yes, but I don't see why you'd want to do that, just use ext3 for it09:28
acidicbasemaxagaz: you will now default to ubuntu's grub09:28
sajuuksnuxoll: pretty much, just copying the partitions over09:28
ikoniaSource: it should only be 50meg - so not a waste09:28
sarmisakis anyone running a server from a CF card?09:28
snuxollsajuuk: dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/sdX09:28
cweiglesnuxoll, what was that file you told me for package building?09:28
ikoniasnuxoll: can't do that if the disk sizes are different09:28
snuxollsajuuk: where the former is the drive that want to clone from, and the latter is the destination09:28
cweiglei had to put more wood on the fireplace09:28
Sourcejust a question09:28
snuxollikonia: if the drive is larger it will work fine09:28
Delviencweigle: pbuilder09:29
snuxollikonia: I suppose I should have checked that first09:29
cweigleThank you delvien09:29
ikoniasnuxoll: but cause problems with the spare space when you try to add partitions09:29
cweigleIs it available through terminal download?09:29
snuxollikonia: eh?  no problems caused, just expand the partitions, I've done it many times09:29
Delviencweigle: good way to check "sudo apt-cache search package"09:29
Delviencweigle: replace "package" with the name of the package09:29
snuxollDelvien: apt-cache policy is more useful for checking a specific package09:30
Sourceext3 in my /boot and everything is gonna be alright09:30
ikoniasnuxoll: ahhh, yes, I suppose gparted could work, fdisk throws errors as the geomirty is off09:30
ikoniasnuxoll: good point09:30
snuxollikonia: parted is a little smarter than fdisk :)09:30
cweiglei havent slept in 48 hours09:30
sajuuksnuxoll: so 'dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb' is the command?09:30
cweigleand ive never felt better09:30
Delviensnuxoll for all intensive purposes, its exactly what he needs09:30
snuxollsajuuk: yes, just make sure /dev/sdb is as large or larger09:30
sajuuksnuxoll: I have made sure of that heheh :)09:30
cweiglehuh weird09:31
snuxollsajuuk: trying to clone drives to a smaller disk generally results in uber failure, but yeah, that's it (double check to make sure you put the right drives in though)09:31
cweiglemy terminal froze at building dependency tree09:31
snuxollsajuuk: since cloning a blank disk to your disk full of data would be a bad thing to do09:31
Delviencweigle: that feeling will end. Its how your body reacts to lack of sleep.09:31
sajuuksnuxoll: yeah Im very confident this is gonna pull off alright09:31
ActionParsnipyo yo yo09:31

Digital7e.g. sudo -u somename -p password09:33

ActionParsnipDelvien: you could sleep 8 hours but if you never hit deep sleep you wont be overly rested09:33
ikoniaDigital7: you can do thatif -p is a valid argument09:34
snuxollikonia: which it's not09:34
cweigleLol this is a computer room and we are talking about sleeping09:34
tremmolowActionParsnip that was probably a better way of saying what I meant :)09:34
