ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like Freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit00:00

[TK]D-FenderHello all, still jsut learning Ubuntu+Gnome and had a quick Q : I Consolidated down to 1 panel, Windows-style, and am looking at the Menus now.  How much can I move things around without blowing stuff up or causing apps I try to install later not to know where to put launcher and find them getting "lost in space", etc?00:01
Jaffarkelshacif no one is responding likely no one can help you capricorn^8000:02
antonehenrymiranda_psi: you will have to walk me through that too.,.. =[  sorry00:02
gillroysudo -l?00:02
miranda_psi antonehammers: just add it to the fstab file after the umask and then unmount and remount the drive00:02
Dante123nickrud I am trying to compile the zd1211 vendor driver for my wireless usb dongle00:02
antonehenrymiranda_psi: okay- thanks.00:03
Dante123nickrud it supports using the adapter as an AP00:03
AaronXcan anyone help me get a prism2 card running on 8.10 with hostap?00:03
[TK]D-FenderMore specific question, I haven't found the origin of the "Places" menu just yet for the though of restructuring.00:03
Dante123nickrud but not if you use the standard zd1211rw driver00:03
gillroyhow can i get access to the root account on my machine. and yes, i really really want to.00:03
[TK]D-Fendergillroy: "sudo su -"00:04
jhirleysudo su00:04
Nomexousgillroy: Do you mean sudo -l is failing, or that it doesn't show you want commands you can execute?00:04
jinja-sheep[TK]D-Fender:  Just remove the panel.  You can always add/remove objects to the panel by right-click on the panel and "Add to..."00:04
antonehenrymiranda_psi: actually, what is the "unmask"00:04
nickrudDante123, struct sk_buff, look for it's definition in the code. it should have a member mac . But that doesn't sound like a kernel header problem00:04
jedi06I can't smbclient -L //192.168... -U user saiys failed Called name not presest and NT_STATUS_CONNECTION_REFUSED00:04
[TK]D-Fenderjinja-sheep: But if I want to keep "menu's" but rather restructure it, whats my breakage risk?00:04
gillroy<[TK]D-Fender: thanks00:05
jhirleyanyone have a working background changer script ?00:05
jedi06should i be using the ip of the computer i'm targeting or the gateway of the rueter00:05
jinja-sheep[TK]D-Fender: Nothing.  You're paranoid. :)00:05
miranda_psiantonehammers: its not unmash - its umask and its sets the mask of the folder - effectivily setting the permissions on the folder00:05
Dante123nickrud i have no idea on how to do what you just said.  I think this is over my head.00:05
kavelotafter I updated ubuntu, it seems it lost many -dbg packages, so I'm not getting to compile some programs as debug... any ideas on how to fix that?00:05
AaronXno one knows about hostap?00:05
oskar-jedi06, it is yet smbclient -L 192.168....    doesn't that work either?00:05
jhirleyBut they are out to get you00:05
nickrudDante123, heh. compiling kernel code can be daunting00:05
[TK]D-Fenderjinja-sheep: Yes, but that doesn't mean I haven't broken it this way before :)  I'm just trying not to FUBAR myself.00:05
quibbler[TK]D-Fender, just right click and choose edit....then add remove move what you want00:06
jinja-sheep[TK]D-Fender: You can drag anything to your liking.  Add/remove anything too.00:06
antonehenrymiranda_psi: i don't have any sort of group00:06
Dante123nickrud i noticed that the source is in synaptic for zd1211 and selecting it downloads some tools or additional software....will dl that and then try command again00:06
marcelo_I am using irssi and I am not able to change the channel with alt 1,2 or esc 1,2 etc, Does anyone know why? I have tried #irssi and noboby knows what is happening.00:07
[TK]D-Fenderjinja-sheep: And if I move/rename a submenu name and go to install a nother app, where do its launchers end up, etc?00:07
nickrudDante123, if it's in the packaging system, it should compile itself if it's using dkms00:07
[TK]D-Fenderjinja-sheep: And I really can't seem to see the "places" menu in "menus" at all... right clickiing offers to let me edit the panel, but all I see is Applications & System00:07

[TK]D-Fenderjinja-sheep: Ok, so I'll likely pay a price in continued maintenance to keep structures the way I want them.  As longs as I see the price to pay... and for question #2?  I get tot he "Menus" config boox but can never see the "Places" section shown on the panel00:12

TiZOr maybe ever. I don't know.00:13
oskar-jedi06, maybe the server doesn't listen on that port or a firewall/packet filter blocks the traffic00:14

ubottuDoesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.00:14
jinja-sheep[TK]D-Fender:  If you want to hide Applications / Places / System.  You could remove it from the panel and Add "Main Menu" -- Rather than restructuring everything all times.  Quite hassle and pointless, really. :)00:14
funkyHatJack_Sparrow: thanks for your help earlier. I'm still getting crashes with acpi and apic off though, so maybe I damaged something, or maybe the chipset on the board is really bad00:14

jinja-sheep!sound | Alejandr0_8200:19
ubottuAlejandr0_82: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP300:19

donavan_dr_willis:  seems like it but the alt/ctrl keys seem to function some what normally other than that ... the main issue is that I can select multiple files or items and its really annoying00:29
TiZJack_Sparrow: "Cheap?" We're talking $75 dollars to replace my drive. I'm poor. I may not be able to come up with it. With that said, though, you are right. It is not an ubuntu issuel.00:29

TiZoskar-: My hard drive came with my laptop. It's about 1.5 years old. And as I said, I'm poor. There is a high chance we won't have money to replace it.00:33
ActionParsnipdoes anyone in here use alltray to dock apps, I have a lil nugget of gold for you if you do00:33
TiZJack_Sparrow: Yes, of course. Sorry about that. I'll pop into ##hardware.00:33
hughithello can some one help me out, im new to linux00:33
oskar-TiZ, then return it to the vendor. it is a warranty issue00:34
ActionParsnip!ask | hughit00:34
ubottuhughit: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)00:34
grkblood13acutally, i jsut changed the file name to .iso and the files are now showing up, but when i run the autorun in wine it says theres not enough memory00:34
jinja-sheepActionParsnip: Anything you would like me to try with alltray?  I want the gold. :)00:34
jinja-sheepActionParsnip: I can install it... if that's the case.00:34
TiZoskar-: Warranty's run out. And besides, returning it to the vendor means my data disappears forever.00:34
quibblerActionParsnip, yes...I can ue gold00:34
quibbler*use00:35
hughitim trying to use skype on my computer but the microphone isnt picking up my voice. <i tried using an external mic and it works.. its the microphone thats in the laptop that doesnt00:35
ActionParsnipjinja-sheep: it allows you to send apps that sit in the program list to the system tray, like thunderbird doesnt run there, it runs in the app list00:35
grkblood13any1 know y?00:35
ActionParsnipquibbler: dude you can assign a hot key to bring it out and back into the tray00:36
oskar-TiZ, yes, that's right... but nearly every hard drive vendor gives at least two year warranty00:36
jinja-sheepActionParsnip: I see the info on that one.  But I'm asking if you would want me to test something for you.  I'm trying to be a helping hand here.  Lol.00:36
hughitanyone?00:36
TiZoskar-: Hard drive vendor? I suppose Seagate might. But not Gateway, who made my laptop.00:36
oskar-TiZ, maybe you can get a spare drive somewhere and then get finally a new one for free00:36
ActionParsnipquibbler: here's what i use, F14 is my virtual F key00:36
ActionParsnipquibbler: alltray --key F14 thunderbird00:36
grkblood13how about this, i mounted the iso to a directory i made and now its saying i cant copy hte files bc they are read only, ive tried chmoding them but it wont work00:37
TiZoskar-: I've already asked my friends if they have any spare laptop hard drives. No one does. :/00:37
Fernand20nickrud i have wrote sudo a2enmod userdir , sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart but i dont see public_html folder00:37

Invisomanmight I be able to get some sound/video help?00:37
ActionParsnipjinja-sheep: oh it works, just sharing my knowledge00:37
nickrudFernand20, you do have to create the folder for each person, sorry.   mkdir ~/<usrname>/public_html00:37
jinja-sheepActionParsnip: The apps looks good.  I'm testing it.00:37
jinja-sheepActionParsnip: Thanks. :)00:37
Fernand20nickrud for new users have i to create? or will appear automatic?00:38
InvisomanI can get music to play in rhythm box but no audio anywhere else00:38
oskar-TiZ, is the drive really from gateway? never heard of it as a hd vendor00:38
ActionParsnipjinja-sheep: stuff you want out of the way you can shove down there with alltray, thunderbird is a good example00:38
grkblood13i must be following upon death ears, lols00:38
quibblerActionParsnip, I use an extension firetray in firefox and thunderbird...does the samewhen I minimize00:38
Invisomanany help with that?00:38
nickrudFernand20, no, each person needs to create their own one. However ....00:38
oskar-TiZ, but you have to decide yourself. noone here want to make directions to you...00:39
jinja-sheepquibbler: It only run as long as Thunderbird is open.00:39
jinja-sheepquibbler: The con on that part, I imagine.00:39
Fernand20nickrud i think, i need a script for when i create a user, create a directory or is the some placer where i should do that for when i create a user appear that automatic?00:40
ActionParsnipquibbler: this does ALL apps, not just the specific one. Plus ity lets you assign a hotkey to max / min the app00:40
grkblood13how do i check my ram?00:40
oskar-gn800:40
soreauAll I need to do is have a script run as root when ubuntu boots. How can I do this?00:40
nickrudFernand20, if you add the dir  public_html  to /etc/skel, that dir will be created for each user when you add the new user00:40
InvisomanHow do I get sounds to play in apps?00:40
sketch2002I think this should be pretty easy for someone with a bit of experience...

ActionParsnipsoreau: just use sudo <CLI command> or gksudo <gui app>00:41
quibblerActionParsnip, I use alltray for other things, but I didn't know you could assogn keys...I can get rid of the extensions00:41
Fernand20nickrud in skel folder should i create public_html folder?00:41

bazjust out of curiosity, why is it that "paste" in terminal is not ctrl+v like verywhere else?00:45
sketch2002mib_ so the problem is you don't get the list of "start linux", "start windows", etc... when you first start up? maybe try pressing F8 repeatedly at start up, if you see the loading winxp, obviously it failed00:45
Invisomananyone know how to set up audio so it works in all apps, not just rhythm box?00:45

soreaudr_Willis: I'd like to by sarcastic and say I put it at the top of the file with a '#' in front of it but *sigh* of course I put it before the exit line and with the full path even01:08
K`zanardchoille: OK, makes sense, synaptic appears to be either broken or doesn't work in all cases with the live CD.01:08
dr_Willissoreau,  yu dont want to know the # of people ive seen put it after the exit ;0 What is the command you are rnning anywya?01:09
vigojedi06: I would try umplugging one, then look at the Hardware list, that would tell you which is what, probably overkill or maybe a simplified  way, just a suggestion.01:09
smil3yClaire2009,  its built into the kernel already... http://man.linux-ntfs.org/ntfsmount.8.html01:09

quibblersquillyum, is the problem only with wine?? is amarok ok??01:09
Cyberaijedi06, to a certain degree yes01:09
quonsarrunning 8.10 32 bit and want to install 64 bit in a second partition. if i tell 64 bit install to install boot manager on my original partition, will it preserve my current menu.lst?01:09
ardchoilleK`zan: you can try aptitude, it's a command line gui for package management01:10
squillyumquibbler, I uninstalled amarok, I was just using it to test something, I do not need it, but I do need wine. I already tried uninstalling it and lowering visual effects to none, and that was the output.01:10
Cyberaijedi06, I believe you can configure Samba to utilize a specific interface in the /etc/samba/smb.conf file01:10
dr_Willisquonsar,  i would backup the menu.lst anyway and brush up on grub configuration by hand :) im not sure how well the installer handles multi-disrtos01:10
jedi06well cyberai i turned off one and it still the same thing01:10
Cyberaiah01:10
Cyberaiuse nmap to scan the target windows box and see if it is listening on the correct ports01:11
soreaudr_Willis: It's just a script I wrote to connect to the net manually. It disables the iptables stuff and sets ifconfig statically.. I know network manager could do this but I don't like nm-applet and when I run the script with sudo after log in, it works fine as expected01:11

Rods_Tigerto be honest, I'm very disappointed with the Live USBstick ubuntu. It takes a ridiculous amount of time going back and forth and back and forth and then eventually grows solid to the right and then ages later it boots. It takes far too long to be usable.01:58

Rods_Tigertc111: mine work, but each time they boot (which takes forever) they keep having the keyboard set to a foreign country by default and I keep having to change it.02:15
joeb3_zetheroo, well if you format it in ubuntu, the mp3player may not work because it does not recognize the filesystem02:15

EdgeX-batcoder-7, if you're looking for features i'd surely   recommend amarok...but you're wanting simplicity so i don't think that would be right for you02:16

batcoder-7run slow?02:17
tc111Rods_Tiger: yea, when i could get mine to boot, sometimes they couldn't find the kernel, and if they could find the kernel they couldn't start all the services, especially the keyboard and mouse. very, very unreliable. don't really know what the difference is, but it is absolutely annoying.02:17

EdgeX-hah02:17
dashRoland-: sure02:18
ActionParsnipRods_Tiger: just roll with what the man gives you02:18
Rods_Tigeris there a way of doing a 'proper' install to a pocket hard drive, so that it boots in without thinking it's a livecd, and having it able to find itself on any machine I put it on (regardless of how many other devices are there)02:18
dashRoland-: nothing installs all packages anyway02:18
Roland-dash, that's perfect, but how ?02:19
dashRoland-: do you have an ubuntu cd or are you installing from the internet?02:19
Roland-dash I mean install just the base, not even x window system. I want to add thing manualy02:19
dashRoland-: sure, just do a server install02:19
Roland-using ubuntu desktop cd?02:19
Rods_TigerRoland-:  you might as well use Gentoo then02:19
dashRods_Tiger: ridiculous02:19
dashRods_Tiger: why would you say that?02:20
Roland-I am using gentoo but I am having some issues :)02:20
Rods_Tigerit's what I use02:20
nickrudRods_Tiger, the only guarantee would be putting grub on the pocket drive pointing at a partition on the pocket, and on the machine making sure that usb device is the first boot. The bios is your bottleneck02:20
dashRods_Tiger: Oh. Haha.02:20
Rods_Tigerah02:20
Rods_Tigernickrud: sounds complex and fraught with variation.02:20
ActionParsnipRoland-: if you are using cli based system i'd recommend gentoo too02:20
Roland-I am thinking to try ubuntu just because it's large userbase but I don't want it to come with thing installed by default02:21
nickrudRods_Tiger, not on the ubuntu end. But the os is at the mercy of the bios when it comes to booting02:21
Roland-I would like to keep it light02:21

* Roland- checks that02:21
Roland-where is it?02:21
nickrud!minimal | Roland-  you could use the minimal install disk02:21
ubottuRoland-  you could use the minimal install disk: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD02:21

Roland-as far as I remember one year ago ubuntu was VERY slow on performance. comparing to gentoo,arch, etc02:22

codazodaSo, I can rsync to /mnt/jay as root, but not as a user.  /mnt is chmod 777.  /mnt/jay is chmod 777.  But, I have to do the mount command as root.  Is that the problem?  Do I need to figure out how to allow the user to mount the directory in order for the user to write to it?02:58
ppiceYep and it's doind the same thing, now the third cd I burn, running verify with burning software and it says it's ok...02:58
codazodaRather, the user can write to it, but rsync can't for some reason.02:58
coyote_bluewhen i was installing and setting up my hard-drive, i told it not to do anything with the partition i keep all of my music, pictures, etc. on. I can access the drive... but I would like to be able to add it to fstab so it has its own directory and auto-mounts. unfortunately, i'm used to slackware fstab and i don't think i could edit this one by hand. is there a tool to use?02:58

K`zanJust a silly question, I know how to get around it, but why can't synaptic find "geda"?03:06

dr_WillisChaorain,  enable nvidia drivers. use nvidia-settings tool to clone the monitors03:07
K`zandr_Willis: Perhaps it doesn't work for some reason off the live cd?  But apt finds it there so, I'm confused.  Yes, I did check the CD for defects :-).03:08
dr_WillisChaorain,  or tweak them in other ways03:08

coagenmlLK: what exactly are you trying to do?03:52
mlLKcoagen, is this the same for aptitude?03:52
markiv1982izinucs are u using Jaunty?03:53
coagenmlLK: yes03:53
avegasso the exact behavior that I see is that on some audio files, whatever I attempt to play them with will just halt, and appear to be in play mode, but the track will not progress at all03:53
LorgonJortleapt-get is pretty much the same as aptitude, right?03:53
mlLKcoagen, I wanna cat some source files.03:53

MatBoyI really need to get rid of it03:53
izinucsMatBoy, why03:54
noodlesgcMatBoy you cant03:54
coagenLorgonJortle: no aptitude is better, dont bother using apt-get anymore03:54
joljamalso having problem downloading03:54
joljamwhenever I down load some stuff03:54
izinucscoagen, why would you say that to LorgonJortle03:54
mlLKcoagen, so apt-get source coreutils will put what where?03:54
joljamclick on save file03:54
coagenLorgonJortle: gnome-terminal ?03:54
joljamits does not save03:54
coagenizinucs: what?03:54
rwwCpudan80: Per Wikipedia, XChat is licensed under the GNU GPL for all non-Windows versions. So yes, "plain XChat" is free/open source software, except for the Windows version, which is just free as in free stuff.03:54
MatBoyizinucs: because I need to run scripts as root and every user is by default root because it can sudo with it's own password, damn insecure !!03:54

Cpudan80rww: its not free in windows03:55
coagenmlLK: /var/cache/apt/archives afaik03:55
izinucscoagen, why would you say not to use apt-get and use aptitude instead?03:55
rythhi could someone tell me how to install a program that I've downloaded for Ubuntu?03:55
MatBoynoodlesgc: it will break the system ? can I turn it off and give root a pass so it's like in debian ?03:55
rwwCpudan80: I just said that.03:55
LorgonJortlecoagen, yes03:55
mlLKcoagen, run that?03:55
deokanonhello people sorry for interrupting. i am a linux newbie and i am currently installing kubuntu (dual boot) and i was wondering why it's not offering me the option to use the free space on my HD. the only way to install linux is to wipe out everything clean. now i got a lot of free space on HD, but how come linux can't automatically create a volume where it will be installed on03:55
Cpudan80rww: but you have to pay for it03:55
LorgonJortleizinucs, so, aptitude isn't better?03:55
Cpudan80rww: it costs $3003:55
coagenizinucs: read the recomendations everywhere, and try using aptitude yourself... you'll never go back to apt-get again03:55
LorgonJortleI was reading they're the same..03:55
coagenizinucs: its sooooooooo much better03:55

joljamproblem with downloading03:56
MatBoynoodlesgc: yes I know that part, but I mean.. does ubuntu count on it and when I set it with a normal rootpass will it not break ubuntu too ?03:56
impalercan i remove drm I burn an audio dvd instead of an audio cd?03:56
coagenizinucs: i switched to aptitude like 3 or 4 years ago and I'll never go back03:56
izinucsLorgonJortle, It's a personal preference.. synaptic and add/remove uses apt-get.. aptitude is great for the terminal because of the terminal gui03:56
rwwCpudan80: Oh, I see what you mean (stupid "free" meaning two things). Yeah, that's right. Still, though, Xchat in Ubuntu is f/oss :)03:56

sukiminnacoagen: but we can remove the unused dependencies in apt-get using apt-get autoremove & apt-get autoclean rite?04:13
coagensukiminna: please try aptitude, you will like it i think... also remember to completely remove a package aptitude is a little different, you must use "aptitude --purge purge pkgname" to remove a package completely04:13
brad_ Hardy04:14
Gneagrkblood13: sure, just mount it on a loop device and use k3b to drag 'n drop files from it to a new iso04:14
grkblood13a loop device?04:14
brad_The problem is the master does nothing, and the head phone does master04:14
grkblood13u mean mount -o loop04:14
Gneayup04:14
Gneabrad_: hrmm04:14
coagensukiminna: yes this may be true, but when you use aptitude, it remembers what packages were installed with another package and removes them automatically04:14
cdennyLorgonJortle what version do you have?04:14
LorgonJortlecdenny, Hardy Heron04:15

aero1tj83, what would you suggest?04:22
tj83aero1, what is your computer brand? desktop or laptop? do you notice a message at boot "mp-bios bug detected?" or similar apic errors? have you checked your system logs?04:22

tj83aero1, no hints in the system logs?04:23
coagenLorgonJortle: meh... neither do I :)04:23
nickrudgerber, but back to a critical issue: what client is it? If you show me a link that's a start04:23
aero1tj83, I haven't noticed any errors on boot, and  I looked at dmesg, and didn't see anything peculiar, maybe you can take a look?04:24
Gneasukiminna: aptitude tends to assume that somethings need to be removed, when they don't necessarily need to be. i tend to find myself using apt-get as a result, since it gives the ability to purge as well and it doesn't try to screw me.04:24

izinucschilli0, unplug it.04:48
_2sukiminna no. grub2 is avalable, but the default is grub.  the default needs to be upgraded in the distro install process04:48
tj83sukiminna, you get grub updates automatically but grub can be managed in the /boot/grub/menu.lst04:48

rsyringWhat could I try to clear that up?04:49
_2sukiminna yes you just install grub2 package.04:50
Roland-any advantages in grub2 ?04:50
arvind_khadriapinunt, afaik you will have to download the alternate cd and then upgrade if you dont want a fresh install04:50
chilli0umount: /dev/video0: not mounted04:50
tj83sukiminna, hmm, i dunno is it in the repo? i know nothing about grub204:50

MaT-dgRoland: check the website http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/grub-2.en.html04:51
chilli0it was a program called motion04:51
tj83sukiminna, maybe it is in the repo as grub2 so a sudo apt-get install grub2 should do it?04:51

sdlwoflotte, that what you looking for?04:57
_2sukiminna i think that is correct.   but grub-setup should04:58
izinucsapinunt, seeing at that is somewhat problemmatic.. I'd suggest just installing fresh with either 8.04 or 8.10 and tag your current /home as the new /home and DON'T format it in the process.04:58
CaptainMorganoh... maybe it just means to unmount it04:58
aero1does anyone know how to view dmesg for last boot?04:58
Nomexousaero1: 'dmesg' in a terminal04:59

aero1Nomexous, it only shows messages for this boot04:59
PAS_KTRG_2: i use dsl connection and have router.. but my friend still cant connect use my line04:59
_2aero1 for the previous boot ?   you can't.04:59
izinucsPAS_KTRG, you mean that your friend is connected to your router and still cant get on the internet?05:00
sukiminna_2: by that u mean grub2-setup?05:00
Nomexousaero1: In /var/log, I have dmesg.1.gz, dmesg.2.gz05:00
Name141Is it possible to make a Wubi install larger than 30 GBs?05:00

IndyGunFreakName141: wy not just do a normal install?..05:00
tsukasaquestion about lvm, if i reconnect the harddrives in a different order than what i started with it should still figure it out right?05:00
IndyGunFreaki'm personally not very fond of wubi05:01
apinuntizinucs: I would have to order a CD in order to do that as I can't burn a CD.05:01
Brack10I deduced from the man page on smb.conf that you can configure samba to use Windows ACLs for folder and file permissions, giving you the ability to control folder ACLs from Windows, just like you would on a folder shared by a windows machine, is that correct?05:01

IndyGunFreakName141: well, then download a super grub disk...05:01
aero1Nomexous: no it's this boot because the numbers on the left reset after each boot05:01
aero1ok05:01
tsukasaName141: no, you can remove ubuntu and grub will still boot windows05:01

Guest60113if i want to be able to run a executable without going to the folder...i need to set the PATH in the .profile right? I tried that but it still doesn't work, and when I tryp echo $PATH....i don't see the path that i entered on .profile nor do i see any of the other paths that exist already from before. Am i doing something wrong?05:03
apinuntizinucs: I just looked at the archive site I'm getting the errors on and the feisty directory is missing. I'm trying to do this as safely as possible as I can't chance losing what's in my home directory.05:04
tsukasacoagen: okay so work with me here... if i boot off the drive it will find the raid and work, but if i boot off the livecd lvm2 doesnt detect it05:04
Name141And what is the advantage of running Native than Wubi ?05:04
tsukasacoagen: one of the drives is going bad too05:04
izinucsapinunt, one way some have mentioned is to edit sources.lst to the version you want and upgrade that way.. sounds risky to me.. might be better to have someone burn a copy of the cd for you.. slowly05:05
coagentsukasa: hmmmm.... not sure if I know what to do there... what are you trying to do?05:05

izinucsapinunt, until you get it05:08
Name141_2: So you are telling me to be worried about a windows worm screwing up Wubi cause it will be accessable through Windows ?05:08
apinuntizinucs: That may be all I can do if I can't access the archives necessary.05:09
_2Name141 i'm telling you that if a virus or other anomily affects the ntfs you will lose linux too because it it in a file within the ntfs05:09

BlueEaglelyrae: You may want to nohup or screen it (or both)06:28
arvind_k!envy | hole_06:28
ubottuhole_: envyng is an updated version of the *UNSUPPORTED* envy package. It is now part of the ubuntu universe repository (envyng-gtk OR envyng-qt) we suggest you use envyng if every other (official/supported) method fails! it can have various results from works, to fails!!!  if you want the very latest drivers from the manufacturer you use them at your own risk06:28
lyraewhat does that mean, BlueEagle06:28
StargazerGnutron, that just gave all permissions to root. >:|06:28
monokromestrick9: Nope. I'm going to check it for defects...06:28
gnutronStargazer: then sudo chmod 755 /media/disk06:28
hole_no i am  a noob06:28
BlueEaglelyrae: Is this a script that does something and then ends or does it run forever?06:28
arvind_khole_, ok use envyng.... things will fall into place :)06:29
lyraeBlueEagle: runs forever ... until user right-clicks the tray bar icon and exits06:29
hole_where is a tutorial on envying06:29
gnutronStargazer: its  group is root, you are the owner06:29
arvind_khole_, i gave it to you06:29

gnutronkalvin_: why do you want a text file in a protected directory06:51
DasEi P4C0:sudo apt-get install swat06:51
jedi06how do you alias a rm to mv trashbin?06:51
P4C0DasEi i installed samba and swat but swat is not up06:51

hole_wow it went through and asked me to reboot i'll be right back06:54
P4C0DasEi seems to be up but still i can't log in06:54
gnutronkalvin_: use sudo mv files then you should set their permisions and owner.group06:54
white-sheepkalvin_: Ahh.  You can either chown the folder or you can use "gksudo nautilus"  It'll make you an admin.06:54
white-sheepFor temporary.06:54

russ5811strick9, you still here?06:54
monokromestix_: "Install Inside Windows" solved the issue, I believe.06:54
nickrud!lamp | kalvin_06:54
ubottukalvin_: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)06:54
gangasDasEi: it says no signal06:54
kalvin_thanks a lot guys06:55
tritiumgangas: check linuxtv.org, on the dvb wiki, ATSC devices.  Make sure that that card is supported.06:55
DasEiP4C0: check your /etc/samba/smb.conf06:55
P4C0DasEi ok, thanks06:56
DasEigangas: does lspci find the card ?06:56
Gobbyhello all06:56
gnutronleo_: edit/preferences/general/accounts06:56
kalvin_just to let you guys know, xampp installation on linux was a hell of a lot easier than on windows xp!06:56
jedi06alias rm mv ~/.local/share/Trash/files/06:57
P4C0DasEi seems not to be anything about swat there, what should I look for?06:57
jedi06doesn't work06:57
gnutronjedi06: that doesn't make sense06:57
shavini installed privoxy and tor thru synaptic. Now i have opened the privoxy config file and i understand i have to change the listen-address here. what should i change to? i have a laptop which connects to my netgear router, i have not assign any ip address to my laptop, i am not sure what my address is, and maybe it changes everytime i boot up. please help06:57
jedi06gnutron i'm trying to alias rm to mv trashbin06:58
gangasDasEi: Pastebin of lspci: http://paste.ubuntu.com/106263/06:58
mib_nogh3bis there any software in ubuntu that allows me to record video from a connected camera? like a preinstalled on?06:58
DasEiP4C0:it is nothing swat there, it's samba config-file, where you can adjust how samba behaves (swat is just a graphical solution for it) google tells you a lot06:58
jedi06gnutron alias rm='mv ~/.local/share/Trash/files/'06:58
P4C0DasEi i know, but that means I can't use swat in ubuntu server? that was my question06:59
mib_nogh3blikw windows movie maker can capture vidfeo from a camera06:59
gnutronjedi06: if you alias rm, rm is foobar'd06:59
DasEiP4C0:as it's there you can07:00
sarmisakP4C0: you can, but you can also use webmin also for configuration.07:00
gnutronjedi06: invent an alias thats not a command07:00
kosharimib_nogh3b if its a DV cam kino07:00
nickrud!webmin | sarmisak P4C007:00
ubottusarmisak P4C0: 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.07:00
DasEigangas:  SAA7134   << the chip, can get it working with ubuntu, but need module for it, not precompiled in kernel07:01
gangasDasEi: Where do i find it?07:01
P4C0thanks nickrud, but is webmin same as swat?07:01
Dr_willis_P4C0,  No its not07:01
jedi06gnutron that was the whole point07:01
jedi06i want to abolish rm07:01
nickrudsarmisak, P4C0 but I've been told that webmin is working on support. No first hand experience07:01
Gobbyhey guys, is there like a ¨beginners¨ guide to ubuntu perhaps?07:02
nickrudP4C0, I don't see swat in the repos; if it's not there it's probably for a similar reason to webmin07:02
gnutronjedi06: mv ~/.local/share/Trash/files/  doesnt have files to mv or a target07:02
mib_nogh3bkoshari: it is one of those little cheap cameras that is a camera, webcam, and can also be used to capture video on a computer07:02
sarmisaknickrud: I've been using it a lot for configuration, yes it does break in some configuration parts but it's good to go with samba in my experience07:02
mib_nogh3band is there a installed prog to do this?07:02
gnutronjedi06: it makes no sense, maybe im tired.07:02
P4C0nickrud i did a apt-get install swat and it worked07:02
FlannelGobby: try help.ubuntu.com, it will walk you through a good deal of common tasks07:03
jedi06i think the alias is just a substitution gnutron07:03
GobbyOkay flannel, will do thanks :)07:03
jedi06rm will expand to the mv07:03
nickrudP4C0, it's not in my intrepid list, you mush have an older editon07:03
sarmisak!ebox > sarmisak07:03
ubottusarmisak, please see my private message07:03
gnutronjedi06: no, you dont want to abolish rm. glad youre not a developer07:03
jedi06oh you are right gnutron07:03

tritium!envyng | gangas, arvind_khadri07:09
ubottugangas, arvind_khadri: envyng is an updated version of the *UNSUPPORTED* envy package. It is now part of the ubuntu universe repository (envyng-gtk OR envyng-qt) we suggest you use envyng if every other (official/supported) method fails! it can have various results from works, to fails!!!  if you want the very latest drivers from the manufacturer you use them at your own risk07:09
macvrRohan_SM: oh... i not sure of the command though... could ask again in bit if u dont get a response07:10
Flanneltransporter: And you're having trouble following this page? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Skype07:10
arvind_khadritritium, i know about it :) thanks07:10
Rohan_SMThanks I ll do bit googling :-D07:10
DasEigangas: sudo apt-get install linux-ubuntu-modules-$(uname -r)07:10
arvind_khadrihole_, then what happened why did you shift to opengl?07:10
gangastritium: what you mean?07:10
DasEigangas: sure there was no typo ?07:11
gangasDasEi: trying07:11
tritiumgangas: we strongly advise against using it07:11
P4C0hmm but swat was working fin in desktop version07:11
gangasi am copying07:11
hole_arvind_khadri: so i can play ut200407:11
tritiumgangas: and arvind_khadri shouldn't be recommending it07:11
gangasgeneric07:11
P4C0is there a reason why server version doesn't have a inetd while the desktop does?07:11
transporterFlannel : im not having trouble with the page i had downloaded skype earlier from the repos but now i don't see it there anymore afer the stupid updates07:11
arvind_khadritritium, well then can you suggest me someother way of making cards work...anyways envy is official now07:12
gangasDasEi: mine is generic but nothing like that exist!07:12
DasEip4CO: server has, too, look in /etc/init.d07:12
tritiumarvind_khadri: the ubuntu-packaged drivers are recommended07:12
arvind_khadrihole_, ok so you got the display with the drivers from envy?07:12
P4C0DasEi 8.10? mine doesn't07:12
tritiumenvyng is packaged, but not recommended07:12
jtierhey guys i am trying to setup a vsftp server, i added a user called ftp user, and I added the home directory for user to /var/www/ftp, but when i login as the user, i don't see files in that folder, am I doing something wrong here ?07:12
arvind_khadritritium, are there any ubuntu drivers... you mean the non-free ones?? they dont work for all07:13
gangasDasEi: Priv.07:13
Flanneltransporter: Alright, please pastebin your sources.list (/etc/apt/sources.list) and the output of the following command: sudo apt-get update ; apt-cache policy skype07:13

ari_stressgood afternoon all :)07:13
tritiumarvind_khadri: again, it's not recommended unless *every* other option fails07:13
hole_arvind_khadri: yes then i went to System>admin>drivers and enabled the ati accelerated driver so i could play ut then i rebooted again and got the white screen again07:14
gnutronjedi06: alias junkit='rm ~/.local/share/Trash/*'  would delete trash files  by typing junkit07:14
gnutronjedi06: never alias an existing cmd07:14
gnutronjedi06: you get points for effort though :)07:14
gnutronjedi06: if you just typed the alias its gone when you close that terminal07:14
gnutronjedi06: typing 'alias' will show persistant/existing aliases usually located in the .bashrc file07:14

fsufitchhey guys, i'm having an issue with firefox. the "awesomebar" searches for multiple words and returns the relevant webpage fast, but not for single words. for example, "google mail" brings up gmail in about 2 seconds, while "gmail" brings it up in about 15 seconds. anyone have any idea what's going on with it?07:32
Luke3but I'm having trouble07:32
kj4dmsuperman, i've found that ubuntu has issues when you directly edit config files07:32
Luke3Let me link07:32
tv7497Flannel: what can be done to make it alright sir ?07:33
dmsupermankj4: I undid my manual changes07:33
chilli0fsufitch:  it has to search a lot more with 1word07:33
dmsupermankj4: I logon and it immediately connects, but that doesn't really help me :(07:33
kj4dmsuperman, it's a great distro, my favorite, but probably not best for those with deep linux skills07:33
Flanneltv7497: You'd have to fix whatever was wrong with your Dust Aurora theme (or just remove it entirely)  I'm not really all that knowledgable about theming.07:33
Gobbylol, chilli  i still have to download/ install so will be an hour but, what are the steps after that?07:33
kj4dmsuperman, if I suggest you install wicd again, then you'll just get angry because i'm repeating myself, so i wont07:34
fsufitchchilli0: what do you mean? isn't it just using the "i'm feeling lucky" of google? google's not slow for a single word07:34
chilli0Gobby:  just run it07:34
tv7497Flannel: thanks sir07:34
dmsupermankj4: I may just give it a try if I can't get anything else to work07:34
kj4dmsuperman, ok07:34
dmsupermankj4: The issue is when you don't use the defaults, the people here are less likely to help you07:34
chilli0fsufitch:  im not to sure , but it has to go through more search terms to find it07:34
Gobbyit will work after just simply running it?07:34
chilli0Gobby:  yes07:34
kj4dmsuperman, yes, i have noticed that too07:34
chilli0if not come back and ask and ill try to help07:35

chilli0k07:39
zirodaykj4: well its incompatible with the already installed network-manager. You can only have one or the other. Removing network-manager is not recommended.07:40

blip-hi all, i have a FAT32 partition which i've set to automount via "/dev/sda8 /media/share vfat defaults,rw,auto,umask=000,iocharset=utf8 0 0" and it automounts perfectly and i have write access for weeks... but now i just booted my pc and tried writing to it, it says don't have write access.... ls -l shows everything as being owned by root but i suspect that's because the mount somehow didn't go through correctly... what could've happened here ? thanks07:41
adam7ziroday: network-manager can be removed, but you'll lose your internet connection while doing it07:41

PeddyLaurenceb: It's ok to kill it if you're not using flash. It's rather unstable. It works by using a wrapper to stick in the 32-bit flash, because there was no native 64-bit flash around when Intrepid was released, however Adobe released an Alpha (it might be Beta now) of native 64-bit flash, which I find is a lot more stable than the nspluginwrapper workaround.07:55

KymaeraI'm new to servers.  I have Intrepid server installed on my box, and I want to use it as a file server.  I have both sshfs/fuse and sftp, but I can't copy files to the server.  What do I need to do to make that happen?08:43
atom^xDesiArnez6: ->http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-format-usb-pen-drive/08:43
Luke3I got another question08:44
KymaeraWhen I mount the drive via sshfs, it looks like it mounts read-only, and I'm just not familiar with using sftp.08:44
Luke3On my cube when I pull up an application it shows on the other 3 sides of the cube08:44
roccity_Kymaera: so you want the files to go on the server from another computer08:44
Luke3Oh nvm I got it08:45
Kymaeraroccity_: yes.  Is there a program I can install client-side, like fireFTP for Firefox, or should I be able to do it with the correct permissions with sshfs?08:45
blounddoes anyone know where to find those packages?08:45

DesiArnez6keith__ Ive never used gparted so I figured Id just right click on Format in windows, unless there was a simple command in the terminal to use. I have no idea how to use gparted08:46
socketsdo i need to do : sudo apt-get install xorg for xorg to work correctly? before i do apt-get install ubuntu-desktop?08:46
socketsor does the desktop install it for me?08:46
sheepsockets: it's required by the desktop as a dependency08:47
Ketrelsheep: is there any way to change it?08:47
sheepsockets: so yes, it does08:47
CabooseHey all: I need some help with a fairly crippling display issue, my radeon 4870 throws up a whitescreen whenever I boot into ubuntu. Anyone here particularly good with display problems?08:47
jd__problem: i have everything connected and i pretty much all the way there but when i go to sync it says sucessful but does not actually sync anything08:47
keith__DesiArnez6: It is a GUI program. You just have to select the drive and format it. But either way should be pretty simple.08:47
dr_WillisCaboose,  i noticd that once till i disabled compiz..  and reenabling compiz fixed i.. not sure why it did that08:47

Don_MiguelWubi install problem, repeat #2 -- Trying a Wubi install (8.10) on a backup Win PC with XP Pro SP3 and in step 4 of the install process (setting up partitions) there were no options, but it would not let me continue with the install ( on an empty 100+ GB NTFS partition ). I was switched to a "Live Session" but I am trying to do a Wubi INSTALL of U8.10  in that big partition.  HELP ! all serious suggestions appreciated. Thank you !08:48
user___keith__: does your /etc/environment question still stand (sorry for reasking)08:48
keith__user___: Yes... yes it does08:48
DesiArnez6keith__ hmm ok Ill give it a shot maybe08:48
Ketrelsheep: are you referring to using the other driver version?08:49
Caboosedr_willis: I'm fairly new to ubuntu, anyway you could... uhh... make that simpler? :P also, the white screen is there from the moment I hit the login screen, so I never actually get a chance to see anything08:49
sheepKetrel: I think so08:49
socketssheep: i installed ubuntu (gnome) using "cli" and the minimal (9mb) iso, meaning a network install.. instead of having the files on a CD. i installed twice already and both times xorg.conf seems to be empty.. I look up directions on how to install certain drivers, and some other stuff, and they require me to edit an xorg.conf that has NOTHING but default "Configured Video Device" and "Configured Monitor"08:49
DesiArnez6atom^x thx I just opened those ..scanning thrrough them08:49
socketshow do i populate the xorg during install?08:49
dr_WillisCaboose,  i was able to right click nd see the desktop menu, i went to change wallpaper and disabled  the extra effects... that fixed it for me...08:49
sheepsockets: did you try running sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg ?08:49
user___keith__: do you maybe assign the classpath later in a user file in a way that you overwrite it instead of "attaching"?08:49
dr_WillisCaboose,  no idea why it worked.. i just guessed and tried it.08:49
rwwsockets: Just add the sections and entries you need. Most of the stuff in xorg.conf is autodetected these days, but if you add stuff to the file it'll respect it.08:50
Ketrelsheep: I do not wish to do that (I did that in the past and had other problems, I'd really like to try the first fix you showed, but I just need some way to modify that)08:50
sheepKetrel: what do you have in /etc/modprobe.d?08:50
Caboosedr_willis: were you able to see the login screen?08:50
dr_WillisCaboose,  yes... if you can even see that.. well thatsnot a compiz issue hen08:50
Caboosedr_willis: lol yea, didn't think it was compiz. I can't see anything... always stuck in a white screen. :/08:51
keith__user___: Not that I am aware of...08:51
socketsrww, sheep: the file is empty (0 bytes) after install, after i do -phigh xserv.. ect. it populates with: "section: monitor, identifier: configured monitor" .. no real info, it does that for device, monitor and screen sections. where can i find the stuff i need to add to it if it isn't autodetected?08:51

DarkKnightarvind_khadri; i installed that but it doesn't have the compile and execute tools09:16
arvind_khadriDarkKnight, you need to get the plugins right for that....09:17
rwwcMad: there're two different versions of most packages in the Ubuntu repositories, including the -generic kernel. One version is 32-bit, one is 64-bit. You're not supposed to mix them, no.09:17
DarkKnightarvind_khadri; can you tell me which plugins are reqired09:17
arvind_khadriDarkKnight, go to Edit->Preferences and then there installed plugins... look for something as build plugins09:18
cMadI don't want to :) currently I have many entries in grub when I boot, generic and i386 and the last 3 or so versions if each. How could I switch to 64bit and clean up the old bits I don't need?09:18
