akureidanes_ i don't know much about usb sticks on windows, but it could be that windows only recognizes just one partition?02:43
danes_Dr_willis, well, it is actually /dev/sdb202:43
akureii'm not that windows expert02:43
Bossmanbetalosher, there is a way to mitigate it though... if you go to the FILE LIST (right arrow on an active torrent) you see the files downloading in the torrent. if you select one and hit the SPACEBAR, you can change the file's download status to OFF (dont DL) or high, meaning high priority...02:43
Dr_willisthumbdrives under windows - with more then 1 parittion - do work. :)02:43
nikrudPC_Nerd1, now do sudo env | sort ; you'll see you're using your regular user's path rather than root's, I think02:43

danes_I just want to use my usb to have ubuntu in one partition, and other partition in fat for my regular files02:44

danes_Dr_willis, do you know of any app that might help me with this?02:44
MisterK1danbhfive: any ideas?02:44
akureidanes_: well if one partition is ext2/3 or jfs or whatever linux fs, windows won't recognize it02:44
Bossmanbetalosher, that's impractical :(  but was worth fleshing out in discussion :)  I am asking about this patch in #rtorrent though02:45
danes_akurei, yes, I know that, but the secondary partition is definitively not showing up. I want to create first two fat partitions to see if both work02:45

danbhfiveMisterK1: you could test your system with gstreamer-properties              I don't know otherwise.  Picking a different audio device worked for me02:46
danes_akurei, I dont think so, I made the two partitions the exact same way, but one is not working02:46
akureidanes_: do you know where the hdd manager is on windows? i only know how it is called in german02:46
iajrzwould add the command for the users would be by making a launcher in the /usr/bin (and/or /usr/sbin) folder, PC_Nerd1; not sure how safe it would be, tho02:47

PC_Nerd1ok - im attempting to keep everything where it is, thus the path (instead ot puting a symlink in there in the first place)  is there an easy file to append the global path value?02:52

heatmzzrdoes anyone know how to get a verizon novatel usb760 to work in ubuntu? Doing so would further reduce my need for MS..........02:52
losherBossmanbeta: the only other problem I've found is that when I try some of the fancier stuff in the rtorrent.rc file, specifically, automatically moving finished torrents to a different directory, I get crashes. Other than that, it's pretty solid02:52
wirelesslessezerhoden, I have tried that various times, still doesn't work. I've seen posts on ubuntu help forums about people having similar problems, but no solution (similar problems with intrepid apparently too, and 8.10, I'm still on older version), nothign changed in my system except regular auto upgrades02:53

jedi06ok since the guided partition doesn't work becuase it only sees my xp partition i have to use the manual and i see /dev/sda1 ntsf /dev/sda2 ext3 106MB and /dev/sda3 31gb  which sda2 and sda3 must be linux how do i format them onto one partition and install ubuntu02:53

PC_Nerd1only difference is that root does NOT have /usr/games in its path... they both have my /usr/local/apache2/bin directory in there.. so its jsut sudo.02:56
losherBossmanbeta: well mine doesn't, because I keep the rtorrent.rc very simple. Supposedly you can configure this but I opted for stability over features :-(02:56
akureijedi06: well for starters: ubuntu IS linux, but well you should delete /dev/sda2 and /dev/sda3 via livecd02:56

akureipvr?03:12
jedi06ok so what is the difference in primary and logical03:12
nikrud!screen | akurei03:12
ubottuakurei: screen is a terminal multiplexer. See http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2004/3/9/16838/14935 and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Screen03:12
carl-mjedi06: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primary_partition#PC_BIOS_partition_types03:12
PC_Nerd1ive just made my user ALL=(ALL) ALL    however sudo env | sort outputs a path without the custom directory in it.... weird?03:12
Dr_willisakurei,  scree, or  the 'nohup' command.03:12
akureijedi06: short: primary : max 4 partitions logical: more.... long: see wikipedia03:13
Dr_willisakurei,  screen, or  the 'nohup' command.  can let it continue running.03:13
nikrudakurei, herm, it used to say more. You can run screen on the remote machine; it allows you to 'detach' from it, leaving processes running, and exit ssh.03:13
exodus_msWhen I try to adjust my appearance through system->preferences->appearance, I get the following message:   Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.03:13
akureiso i type screen and it's awright?03:13
=== caplink811-log is now known as caplink811_log
carl-makurei: then you detatch the screen with control-a control-d03:13
carl-mwhen you want to re-attach you type screen -raAd03:14
nikrudDr_willis, you've used screen a lot more than me, you can probably give a 25word clear description03:14

Dr_willisnohup command03:15
Wolverin3please03:15
Dr_willisexit.03:15
Dr_willisif i recall right03:15
carl-makurei: if you will never need to send additional input, nohup is fine. if you have to keep going back to send input, use screen03:15
nikrudor  disown <tab> <tab> after running a command, then exit03:15
Dr_willisakurei,  screen is too handy to not learn about. :) it has so many usses heh03:16
unopnikrud, though, disown doesn't necessarily make the job immune to SIGHUPs03:16
akureicarl-m: alright. it's for streamripper. i wrote a script that rips my fav stream, then tar.7z's it and uploads it to my rapidshare.com premium account each hour03:16
nikrudunop, but for the purpose?03:17
PC_Nerd1http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/108848/  thats my suders.  im running as user jack, both jack and root can "run" apachectl, but sudo doesnt know the command, its not in its path ( which ive placed in teh /etc/bash.bashrc)   any suggestions?03:17
carl-makurei: that you should just put in a crontab03:17
akureii did03:17
carl-mthen you don't need to run it by hand, so no issue with ssh hangups03:17
akureianacron /etc/cron.hourly03:17
akureiit's all set03:17
unopnikrud, i guess it works .. depends on which process becomes the parent of the job then i think03:17
akureibut i need to start streamripper  =)03:17
nikrudunop, why I mentioned screen above: but with talk of nohup I was kinda wondering03:18
carl-mthe crontab can't start it?03:18

joeb3_PC_Nerd1, use the full path or add an alias for the command.03:19
phiqtionguys, after installing 8.04 i updated nvidia restricted drivers and rebooted to find a black screen, any thoughts?03:19
unopnikrud, i'm not sure .. but i think with disown the parent of the shell i.e. gnome inherits the children when the shell exits .. in which case, if the user logged out (gnome terminated) the children would recieve the SIGHUP03:19
jedi06hmm akurei it is complaining about a swap space03:19
unopnikrud, screen would be quite the perfect solution here, methinks03:19
nikrudunop, more than I knew before and a testable hypothesis. thanks03:20

carl-mjedi06: add a swap partition, as well, unless you're really short on disk space03:20
jedi06carl-m how big what type etc03:20
joeb3_PC_Nerd1, it's not sudo, the user must have the same path as the root user.03:20
carl-mPC_Nerd1: it's not really secure to use PATH03:21
phiqtionguys, after installing 8.04 i updated nvidia restricted drivers and rebooted to find a black screen, any thoughts?03:21
carl-mjedi06: same size as your RAM, and type 'swap'03:21
jedi06carl-m my ram might change in the future03:21
PC_Nerd1they do, jack and root share an identical path.  sudo doesnt.03:21

lifenovajedi06: and you don't already have a seperate home, right?03:31
jedi06no i need to make one03:31
jedi06that is the 5th03:31
carl-mcodename: sounds like a flaw in one of the drivers, I've heard of similar things03:32
PC_Nerd1is it easy to run a small dns server in order to be able to create subdomain.localhost, and only to have it have the localhost records etc?     ie - have an internal DNS and an external DNS all defined in the one network? (simple home network, one router/modem etc)03:32

jedi06i can make home first before i make the swap03:32
jedi06lifenova i already did that03:32

codenameI have a USB headset, that was plugged in, then I unplugged it and rebooted back into Ubuntu03:32
codenameThat might have caused it03:32
codenameNot sure,  the USB headset might be a factort03:32
jedi06for what lifenova03:32
lifenovajedi06: in the extended, make one for your root filesystem, and then your swap03:32
carl-mcodename: probably the Windows driver is leaving the chip in a state that the linux driver doesn't expect03:33
lifenovajedi06: and then make a primary for home03:33

cdennyn=cbm@wikipedia/cbm03:34
PeoplesAdvocatecdenny: yeah, but you have to know if its in there, I usually do sudo apt-cache search (name of package), to see if its there03:34
lifenovajedi06: sorry, 5 gig is about the bare min I'd say for root, but you can give more to let it have more to breathe. I misspoke when I said 2003:34
cdennyPeoplesAdvocate:  ok thanks03:34
jedi06ok how do you make an extended partition03:35
lifenovajedi06: should be an option in gparted03:35
evilGUI_Can I delete those?03:35
cdennyPeoplesAdvocate: uhoh error!03:35
jedi06nope I'm using the installation ubuntu disk03:36
dayojedi06: Choose 'Local' to make an extended partition03:36
PeoplesAdvocatecdenny: error?03:36
cdennyPeoplesAdvocate: since Im on a virtual machine I believe my vram is too low :(03:36
jedi06there is no local03:36

phiqtionguys, after installing 8.04 i updated nvidia restricted drivers and rebooted to find a black screen, any thoughts?03:37
Aleranwhat command can i run to output whether my system is 32bit or 64bit?03:37
dayoAleran: sudo lshw03:37
carl-mAleran: uname -a03:38
dayoAleran: also try: grep "model name" /proc/cpuinfo03:38
gonewestcoastAleran: dmesg03:38
carl-mAleran: there are two issues: 1. what processor you have 2. what kernel you are running03:39
gonewestcoastAleran: file $BINARY03:39
jedi06dayo you mean make a new partition for /dev/sda the root sda03:39
Aleranawesome03:39
dayojedi06: what are u trying to do?03:39
Aleranthanks dayo, carl-m, gonewestcoast03:39
carl-mAleran: /proc/cpuinfo will tell you the cpu. uname -a will tell you the kernel03:39
dayoAleran: u're welcome :-(03:39
easteregghow can i detect new hardware + load modules?03:39
jedi06install ubuntu i will have more that 4 partitions so i have to make one extended03:39
dayoAleran: typo. that's :-)03:39
dayolol03:40
jedi06i need a / /boot /home swap and there is one for ntfs my XP partition03:40
dayojedi06: what are the partitions u want to have?03:40
Alerancarl-m, cool. I was looking for kernel but thanks for the info.03:40
lifenovajedi06: wait, swap should be logical so you'd have exactly 403:40
dayojedi06: i would make /boot and /home primary. then / and swap logical03:41
jedi06ok i'm starting over03:41
ryanakcaIf I have an NVidia GeForce 7600 GS, and I want to enable my framebuffer, should I uncomment 'vesafb' or 'nvidiafb' in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-framebuffer ?03:41
carl-mjedi06: the main point is, don't delete your existing ntfs partition03:41
jedi06i'm not03:42
carl-mmake a big partition for /root, maybe 8gb, a swap partition, and put the rest in /home03:42
carl-mif you need to make some of them logical partitions, make home and swap logical03:42
Jack_Sparrowjedi06 you can take all of the space left from your ntfs, make it one big extended and place all of your partitions swap etc in the logical03:43

you_had_mehmm ok i will try that :D03:51
carl-mantiver: you want that to match the actual dpi of your monitor03:51
antiverthat's designed to adjust it so that a 72 point font appears as exactly 1 inch on your screen (that's the standard size)03:51
you_had_mehmm03:51
carl-mwell, it measures the number of pixels per inch03:52
you_had_meoh and is "MythUbunutu" worth trying?03:52
antivercarl-m yeah, it should match what your monitor is designed for, but if you want it bigger than what it should be, that's how you can tweak it03:52

pawan1how04:20
Gneadwade09: a keyboard is a keyboard, and mouse functionality can easily be tweaked, if need be.04:20
Dr_willispawan1,  rember grub starts counting at 0 .  so if window is the 5th entry on the menu.. it will be item 404:20

dtchensyockit: Phonon is happy to use pulse; it does in jaunty (i'm using it presently)04:53
biouserdtchen just often I will try to push things past the limit like trying to play sound through firefox with Jack on and recording a screencast or something ridiculous and my sound goes down too hard that all I can do is reboot because I can find the scripts to restart everything04:53
Gneajedi06: the idea is to see if the settings you imported from XP had a nasty effect ont he desktop of the system04:53
biouser*can not find the scripts to restart all sound services04:53
jedi06That has to be it, I thought it was just going to let me see the files04:53
jedi06like mount the ntfs file system04:53
dtchenbiouser: that's because not everything in Ubuntu universe is configured to use pulse04:53
jedi06but it took forever04:54
biouserdtchen indeed04:54
Gneajedi06: in theory, it should. but for some reason, something is causing a problem.04:54
jedi06ok Gnea what happens if that is the case04:54
jedi06do i need to reinstall ubuntu04:54
biouserdtchen so I need the most convenient ways to work around.. it looks like 9.04 will be better though04:54
dtchenbiouser: jackd and pulseaudio both really only work effectively when they grab raw hw:*04:54
puffcarl-m: Okay, so /dev/hdc1 mounts ifne as ext3, but that's grub, vm, etc.  hdec2 is the boot partition so that doesn't buy me much.  sudo file -s /dev/hdc5 gets me: /dev/hdc5: LVM2 (Linux Logical Volume Manager) , UUID: r2qPJg6voPhTQpF5MiN2ZUvEHUiI4AV04:54
micron122can someone tell me how to make a usb bootable for windows7 install?04:54
puffcarl-m: So... how do I mount that?04:55
Gneajedi06: no, but you can find out what's going on by looking at the ~user/.xsession-errors file to see what's causing the problem04:55
biouserdtchen right, but I can run jack on top of PA just not with other PA stuff and I have to stop PA for somethings and can't do certain chores that I would like to simultaneously.. but how do you start and stop PA anyways?04:55

ShakedownI've tried everything I could find to enable direct rendering for my ATI card, but to no success.  Anybody able to help?04:56
Gneajedi06: if it's something from the XP profile that's goofing things up, then it won't matter how many times you reinstall and import - the problem will be there each and every time04:56
biouserI mean I can kill the process04:56
puffcarl-m: I guess more importantly, what are the odds I'll be able to mount that on this machien (centos 5.2)?04:56

Nerosmicron122 oh ok thats a horse of a diffrent color... you should read into the command dd04:56
micron122ok04:57
Gneajedi06: by making another user to test it with, and by examining ~/.xsession-errors, you can determine where the problem is and solve it, thus getting the desktop of your main user to show up04:57

biouserdtchen E: main.c: Failed to kill daemon: No such file or directory05:02

ice_creamsisterblue, usually they recommend not going into root, although you can;  perhaps you can accomplish what you need with temporary superuser access with "sudo <command you wanted to do>"06:03

Milk_RulzDr_willis: I got this error: '/home/harley' must exist and belong to you in order for the installation to proceed.06:03
Milk_RulzIf installing as root, you may need to log in as root, use 'su -' or 'sudo -H'.06:03

Dr_willisMilk_Rulz,  or 'sudo -s' then run the insaller.. or run it as that user.. if you want it installed for just that user.06:04
XFCEntralsisterblue: no problem! sudo alone only works when it comes before the command as in "sudo apt-get install," and you enter your password. to be root, sudo su works better.06:04

bazhang_anu, on one single line describe exactly how you got into this situation. repeatedly saying help!!! overuse of the enter key, and you will be removed.06:40
nikrudoholiab, add a section in each user's .profile that is:  if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then   PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH"  fi , that does it automatically06:40
oholiabDr_willis: it's a perl script I wrote so I could be lazy and type less :P06:40
Dr_willisoholiab,  depends on what you are trying to do.. ~bin is in the path. then you dont need a path..06:41

v1d4l0k4People, I've updated my Ubuntu 8.10 to 9.04 with 'update-manager -d' and now my system doesn't log on. I can use only Failsafe Terminal, every other options blink the screen and back to the GDM. Many commands in the terminal shows GConf Errors, like "stale NFS locks .... failed to get connection to session". What can I do to repair the system? I'm dissapointed. =(06:43
DestilI have a dead, once windows laptop, the bootfile became corrupt, and I was hoping to give ubuntu a go.  I downloaded the "desktop" iso, made the CD but seem unable to boot/install directly from it.  Might someone direct me to the correct download?06:43
ice_creamin my case, tritium, i still had slim as a process, though it didnt display anything06:43
bazhang_anu, last chance ; stop with the overuse of the enter key, and saying help me! without clearing stating your problem all on ONE line.06:44
tritiumice_cream: slim?  What's that?06:44
Dr_willisDestil,   how dod you make the 'cd'06:44

ubottuTo verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/VerifyIsoHowto or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows06:44
Dr_willisDestil,  look on the cd.. what files are there? I suggest using a tool just to burn iso files..  its possible you  burnt it wrong.06:45
Dr_willis!iso06:45
ubottuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.06:45
Dr_willisWhat is that one tool.. Imgburn  I think. thats very good for burning iso files to disk06:45

nikrud_anu, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/dpkg/+bug/262451 . Are you out of disk space?06:47
FlannelDestil: No, you won't.  Unless the comptuer can't boot to the CD (which would be odd).  You may have to push something like F12 or del or something when booting to be able to change your boot order and boot of the CD06:47
redvamp128bazhang:  I think I found a bug report on _anu issue though unsure -- some guy said fix was removing cupsys and cups then rerun update- Bug #262451 in dpkg (Ubuntu Intrepid): “dpkg: ../../src/packages.c:221: process_queue: Assertion `dependtry <= 4' failed.” <https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/intrepid/+source/dpkg/+bug/262451>06:47

DestilThe boot order is fine, CD is first boot device.06:48
Flannel!helpme | _anu06:48
ubottu_anu: Avoid your questions being followed by a trail of "Please, help me", "Can nobody help me?", "I really need this!", and so on. This just contributes to making the channel unreadable. If you are not answered, ask again later; but see also !repeat and !patience06:48
leoI thought I heard Ubuntu is coming out with a new version is it true and When?06:48

leoFlannel, thanx...06:49
Dr_willisVinnex,  look in /etc/X11 and see if any backups exist06:49
_anunikrud , yes , i have out of diskspace06:49
Dr_willisVinnex,  if so - sudo cp  backupxorg.conf_name xorg.conf  and restart X06:49
Destilthe cd contains umenu, wubi, md5sum, readme.diskdefines, ubuntu, autorun and several folders06:49
bazhang_anu, ask every twenty minutes or so. then go to the ubuntuforums while you wait.06:50
VinnexDr_willis: how do i restart x06:50
redvamp128nikrud:  that was the one that matched her reported error above --- Though about mid page a guy said he removed cups and cupsys and it fixed his issue-- (though not sure but aren't those printer drivers??)06:50
niveknvm figured it out :)06:50
nikrud_anu, then that's your problem. You need to make more space on the partition.06:50
_anunikrud , i delete many space then06:51
root_also of note, Vinnex if starting x via 'startx' command, then it will use an xorg.conf from the home dir of the user running 'startx'   handy to keep a very conservative conf file in your home for times like this.06:51
nikrud_anu, sudo apt-get clean will free up some space06:51
ein2015root_: where does X normally grab its .conf file?06:51
_anunikrud , i tried that , still does not work06:51
Vinnexroot_: so whats the copy command to replace xorg file with backup?06:51
nikrudredvamp128, yes. But there's a bunch of duplicate reports, all with different packages.06:52

bazhangcdenny, is there an eject button on amarok as on rhythmbox07:13
PresidentRafficdenny: if you're not transferring any songs over, just pull it out of the computer ;)07:13
nikrudcdenny, right click the ipod in amarok and eject?07:13
root_cdenny right click it's icon and eject it07:13
_anuPresidentRaffi , i am just a normal user07:13
cdennybazhang: when I do that it says post-command-ejection failed or something like that07:13

PresidentRaffi_anu: it's likely that the metadata for eclipse is just getting caught in dpkg's gears07:16
mattgjust a quick question, i've installed ubuntu 8.10 on a windows laptop using the program, wubi. i was able to create a user account for myself and install updates, etc. however, i installed ubuntu to an 8gig usb flash drive using unetbootin, with this version, i can start and get into the OS but any changes i make (new user, adding software, etc) don't save when i shut down the computer or restart (which takes quite a bit of time),07:16
PresidentRaffii would just uninstall it and use emacs ;)07:16

Gnea_anu: what sort of questions do you have, exactly?07:18
PresidentRaffidon't say that out loud, _anu, they'll all pounce on you07:18
_anuPresidentRaffi : dpkg wrong , i think07:18
_anuthough i don't know what is that07:18
Gneamattg: is your question in regards to the wubi installation or the usb installation? i'm thinking it's the usb, but the distinction wasn't obvious..07:19
ein2015cdenny: i havent heard of amarok bricking your ipod... was it doing stuff to it when you disconnected it last time?07:19
PresidentRaffidpkg is the backend for apt which is the backend for synaptic07:19
mattgGnea: yes, the usb version.07:19

_anuPresidentRaffi , then what can i do , it's so weak07:19
cdennyein2015: i just did factory restore but it still wont show album art most of the time07:20
PresidentRaffihonestly, the package manager on ubuntu is one of the few things stopping me from using it07:20
cdennyein2015: sometimes it does, sometimes it doesnt...07:20
=== kompi04 is now known as jony
mattgGnea: the changes that i make aren't persisitant, they reset back to the basic settings when i restart or shut down07:20

ubotturoot_: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo07:24

Gnearoot_: pardon me, but since there are no permissions, it can't write anything. and no, linux does not run off of a fat32 partition - yes, it can handle regular devices, but the / cannot be fat32.07:25

gerberthank you all07:52
arrbotavast ye!07:52
stdinarrbot: install another OS over it, it should overwrite it all07:52
kj4arrbot what is your 'other' operating system?07:52
arrbotwell, i am not trying to get ubuntu out of my life. i am giving this hard drive away07:52
leothere is no one in xchat i will have to try later...thanx for showing me how to get there though...07:53
kj4arrbot: then i'd use a disk utility to write zeros to it07:53
Dr_willisleo,  the xchat homepage has a large help sectiion and forum07:53
arrbotwrite zeroes? you mean to securely wipe away all my files?07:53
kj4kj4 'ultimate boot cd' has a collection of drive tools on it.07:54
ein2015arrbot: http://blogs.zdnet.com/storage/?p=12907:54
stdinfwiw, you don't need a "utility" to do it07:54
stdinjust use dd07:54
leoDr_willis, ok I am new to all this... thanx07:54
kj4arrbot, writing zeros isn't exactly 'secure' but it's good enough for a drive you are giving away, provide there wasn't top secret info on the drive07:54
arrbotah, yes. thank you. thanks ein for the link too07:55
ein2015no problem arrbot :)07:55
DIFH-icerootkj4: overwriting a harddrive ONCE is enough, but i have only a german link for you to read it (heise.de)07:55

TekumelI'm trying to set up a fakeRAID using dmraid, but after sudo dmraid -ay, when I check the disk size it's the same as one HD (as if it were RAID 1) when theoretically it should be RAID 0. How do I go about fixing this?07:59
kyleRquestion, not sure if anyone can answer, but i have a usb hub and whenever i connect anything to it, my mouse becomes really unresponsive for some reason..anyone know why?07:59
ein2015kyleR: is the hub powered?07:59
kj4Dr_willis, so really, the procedure would be to physically install the drive in a running system, find out it's device assignment08:00
kj4and run dd on that08:00
kyleRyeah and when i unplug the power supply it works fine08:00
britta_?anyone who can help me install testdisk? I have downloaded the tarball, but get stuck in the process. I run 8.10 and am a novice at this.08:00
Dr_williskj4,  yes..or boot a live cd. and do it from there08:00
zaapielwhen is ubuntu 9.04 to be released?08:00
Dr_williskj4,  theres live cds with 'secure disk eraser' tools on them08:01
werdnumkj4: no, you can't mount a disk, only a partition.08:01
kj4Dr_willis, i find the live CD to be the best method, and a handy tool to have around anyway08:01
Tekumelzaapiel: The label 9.04 would lead one to suspect April of 2009.08:01
ein2015kyleR: is the mouse also plugged into the hub, so when you plug a second thing to into the hub then it becomes unresponsive?08:01
zaapielk08:01
jemarkzaapiel: april 200908:01
zaapielty08:01
Dr_williskj4,  that why i have a box of themn. :)08:01

kyleRein2015: no the mouse is connected to a port in the back of my desktop..i mean it doesnt stop completely but it barely works..like it freezes up08:02
ein2015kyleR: then i dont know what's going on... are you SURE the hub is powered (aka from the wall plug to the hub by a separate cable)?08:03
ein2015kyleR: because other than that... i'm at a loss :(08:03
kyleRit is powered. when i unplug it though, the hub still works and my mouse if fine08:03
PhotoguyHello! =D08:03
bittinHello =D08:04

ein2015kyleR: dont know what to tell you then... possibly a faulty hub.08:04
Anacranommy mini-notebook does not have a cd-rom drive, can i download the ubuntu ISO and mount it and install it? its running sled11 now, i want to run 8.10 instead?08:05
kyleRcould it be anything with the power going to the computer..maybe too many things plugged in or something cuase its not just when im ubuntu, when i had xp running it did the same08:05
JubYou could try the Thumbdrive boot08:05
leoI have new text color....yehaw!!!08:05

ein2015olivier_: yeah one sec09:08
Dr_willisWoden,  on my oher laptop it had one of those - I just installed the b43-fwcutter tool and it started working09:09
=== Surlent is now known as Surlent777
Dr_willis!find b4309:09

ein2015olivier_: i found a good way to do it with the GUI, just gotta figure out how to do it with the CLI now ;)09:09
Surlent777would anyone know how to set up the framebuffer, to ie use mplayer, dosbox?, etc.09:09
Wodenhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Device/Broadcom_BCM431809:09
olivier_the lsof output was from the server btw09:10
WodenSays it is natively supported in Intrepid...so how do I get it to work?09:10
ein2015olivier_: i assumed :)09:10
Dr_willisSurlent777,  set the framebuffer mode in the menu.lst file, then you may want to install the fbset command and other fb tweaking command.. then for mplayer. you have to give it the proper -vo output option. No idea on dosbox09:10
Surlent777dr_willis: On DOSBox, I just noticed that trying to start it in the Virtual Console would give me a rant about Frame Buffer09:11
olivier_now the ps aef output : http://paste.ubuntu.com/108895/09:11
Dr_willisSurlent777,  ive never used it in the framebuffer.. so not sure how well that works.09:11
lorenzosuWith Ubuntu 8.10 I connect correctly to a WPA wi-fi network. The first time I asked the network app to save password, but at each rebut I'm promped for my (sudo) password to connect. How can I have the wifi connect automatically and truly save the apssword?09:11
Woden"Broadcom BCM4318 is now natively supported in Intrepid by: - NDISwrapper - BCM43XX"  <---How do I do this?09:11
Dr_willisSurlent777,  i do  use  mplayer in the framebuffer every so often09:11
Dr_willisWoden,  i did not have to use ndiswrapper - some of the guide for getting it going are old.09:12
=== squiddy is now known as Guest96460
Surlent777Dr_willis: So, there should be some more-or-less obvious tweak in menu.lst, and then I need to apt-get fbset? Is that about correct?09:12
olivier_and the iptables output : http://paste.ubuntu.com/108896/09:12
Dr_willisWoden,  install the b43-fwcutter tool and see if the  network manager can  hndle it.09:12
WodenDr_willis:  THis is old?  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Device/Broadcom_BCM431809:12
Dr_willis!find fbset09:12
ubottuFound: fbset09:12
Dr_willisSurlent777,  yea. theres a vga= line. You may want to set it to 'vga=ask'  to try different modes09:13
WodenDr_willis: What is b43-fwcutter?09:13
Dr_willisWoden,  all i recall doing last time on my Laptop was installing the b43-fwcutter paclkage  and then it started working.09:13
ein2015olivier_: is port 5901 forwarded to that IP in the network?09:13
Dr_willisWoden,  it downloads the proper firmeware for the  card09:13
olivier_is there something you would like to check about the client side ?09:13

ubottuInformation about changing your framebuffer modes in GRUB can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FrameBuffer#grub09:14
olivier_yes , on the gateway (a ISP provided router)09:14
Dr_willis Surlent777  i rarely use the framebuffer any more09:14

ein2015hmmm is X running on that box? :\09:15
WodenShould I be doing aptitude dist-upgrade or aptitude upgrade?09:15
olivier_yes it is09:15
ein2015Flannel: do you have any ideas why olivier_ might not be able to VNC into a box he has VNC server on, port 5901 forwarded to, etc?09:16
WodenCan anyone see this?09:16
ein2015Woden: no09:16
olivier_Is there a mean to check connection attempts on the server ?09:16
Wodenein2015:  What is the way I do an update and upgrade?09:16
ein2015olivier_: it'd be in the logs somewhere, but if you're getting a timeout problem then i dont know09:17
Flannelein2015: I know (almost) nothing about VNC.  So, assuming the forwarding is proper, and he's connecting to the right IP.  Nope09:17
ein2015Woden: command line or gui?09:17
Wodenein2015:  I don't care, either way09:17
ein2015heh Flannel i'm kind of in the same boat09:17
Surlent777Dr_willis: getting the fbset package...generates a lot of error messages. =(09:18

lorenzosuhateball: I installed UBUNTU 8.10. The first boot-up I selected my WPA wifi network which was correctly listed, and checked the option to save WPA password, but now each time I reboot the keyring pops up asking for password to connect: note that I have to insert the user (login) password10:00

gordonjcpDavidLeon: you're not really going about asking for help the right way10:00
hateballlorenzosu: then you should be able to fix it with polkit-gnome-authorization10:01
gordonjcphateball: ooh, didn't know about that - that saves me asking a question ;-)10:01

cosmicharadeCan anybody tell me why the extra keys on my keyboard have suddenly stopped working?10:01
werdnumWhich keys?10:02
cosmicharadethe ones for music.10:02
werdnumWhat have you done to stop them from working?10:02
etfbDr_willis: Didn't you know?  The way to ask for help about something related to Linux is to say "Linux sucks because it can't [do such-and-such]".  Then a million people will prove you wrong!10:02
cosmicharadeNothing as far as I can tell.10:02
ein2015anybody get ubuntu working on xVM Server Early Access Release 3? :)  or are they just supporting only opensolaris? :(10:02
cosmicharadeUsed to be I could press the >> button and it would skip the the next song but now I have to press stop and then >>10:03
lorenzosuhateball: what's that?10:04
RencxI have keyring problem because of WiFi network what actualy Keyring does?10:04
cosmicharadeCan anybody tell me why the extra keys on my keyboard have suddenly stopped working?10:05
rwwRencx: it stores passwords like your WiFi password10:05
ravencould anyone tell me how to export a video to mpeg using projectx or how to remux audio and video after demuxing10:05
Rencxrww if i delete file it is bad?10:06
hateballlorenzosu_: you set up permissions for different services and such10:06
rwwRencx: Your keyring file? Deleting it will delete passwords saved in various GNOME programs. Other than that, it's not bad. GNOME will automatically make a new keyring if it needs one.10:07
Rencxrww, so i need to do it and laiter set new password like my user because Keyring shows up after every restart.10:08
Rencxrww, or i can change user pasword like Keyring have?10:08
ploomraven, try software packages available under ubuntu-studio10:08
rwwRencx: Does your computer log in automatically, or do you have to put in your username and password on a login screen before your desktop appears?10:09
ravenploom you mean to remux?10:09
Rencxrww, automaticaly10:09
lorenzosu_!info10:09
ubottuRetrieve information on a package: !info <package>10:09
hateballRencx: If you log in automatically, you can use polkit-gnome-authorization to fix that...10:09
lorenzosu_!info polkit-gnome-authorization10:10
ubottuPackage polkit-gnome-authorization does not exist in intrepid10:10
lorenzosu_gtg thanks for help10:10
rwwRencx: then you're going to get prompted for your password every time, because GNOME needs you password to open your keyring to get your Wifi password, and couldn't get it from GDM. Apparently, hateball has some wizardry that'll bypass that.10:10
ploomraven, unfortunately I have had similar problem, but I just looked around in the forums of those video editor programs10:10
rwwhateball: that's System > Administration > Authorizations, right?10:11
hateballrww, Rencx : what you do is enable your account to modify system connections.10:11
ravenok but do you know any special software which is able to do that?10:11
hateballrww: yep! didnt know what it translated to in english :D10:11
hateballrww, Rencx: just because it works it might not be best practice from a security pov... but, it works :)10:12
Rencxhateball, can i change thet Ubuntu ask for password every time i start PC?10:12
hateballRencx: read up a bit for how... and yes10:13
yabukI downloaded the ubuntu dvd to be able to install basic programs without use internet, but how do I set the Synaptic P Manager to "reload" the list of programs from dvd?10:13
nyaaYabuk usually it will ask if you want to open the package manager if you put a cd in that has packages10:14
kanniballwhat is the file, where I set the locales?? in my system I don't have the locales setted10:15
rwwI have a bunch of files spread across several directories. I want to md5sum them all, so that I can check they copied correctly from one computer to another. How do I do that (I figure from the command-line using md5sum somehow, but I don't see an option for it in man md5sum...)10:15
joejcis it possible to change the title of a window?10:15
Dr_willisjoejc,  just any program's window? not that i know of..  xterm. and otehr term programs - yes10:15
Rencxhateball, i'm new to Ubuntu and i need beter explain, because i din't uderstand where i must go and what i must do10:16
hateballRencx:  System > Administration > Authorizations. Scroll down to network-manager, modify system connections. allow your own account. Done!10:17
gordonjcprww: one way would be to do find <parent directory> | xargs md5sum10:17
rwwgordonjcp: oh! xargs! I was wading through the find manpage, but couldn't remember the second part. Thanks :)10:18
jsalisburyI just installed Oracle 10g on Ubuntu 8.10.  I must say that I am amazed at how well it went compared to other distros :-)10:18
gordonjcprww: "find" has some way of doing a command that's the equivalent of | xargs but I can never remember the syntax :-/10:18
fprintHi,all!Is there any software for a linux cellphone?10:18
gordonjcpfprint: in what sense?  A phone running Linux?10:18
fprintgordonjcp, yes,all right!10:19
ploomraven, avidemux, kino and cinelerra are those kind of programs for me, but I am not an expert with video10:19
gordonjcpfprint: openmoko, for one10:19
fprintgordonjcp, moto E610:19
ploomraven, there propably are command line tools for doing that too, but I have not used too much of them...10:19
kanniballwhat is the package that replaces localeconf?10:20
gordonjcpfprint: I don't understand that10:20
Yigalcan any one help me with simple questions? first one: how to set static IP. I tried setting it but after restart it went back to the aut DHCP. Any idea?10:20
ravenwhich tool do you use to easily remove ad from your movies?10:20
fprintgordonjcp, thanks any way.10:20
gordonjcpfprint: I think FIC make a couple of different phones now10:21
ploomraven, you mean logo, or just cut out some seconds at the middle of the movie?10:21
Rencxhateball, 1. must be in active seasion? 2. Must be on locale consule? 3. both10:21
Rencxhateball, and what will be beter if i do this or delete deflaut.keyring.file?10:22
ravenmy dvr records .ts files so mpeg ts format... is it possible to remove some seconds without new rendering??10:22
raventhat would be great!10:22
gordonjcpraven: have a look at mjpegtools10:23
gordonjcpraven: I *think* they will let you chop mpeg streams at specific points without re-rendering10:23
gordonjcpraven: I know I've done it before, but it was about ten years ago and I can't remember what I used10:23
ravenwhere do i get theese tools?10:24
fprintgordonjcp, thank you very much, a big help for me.10:24
ploomraven, I have had some success in cutting mpeg2 video with both: avidemux and cinelerra10:25
ploomraven, I just installed them through package manager...10:25
hateballRencx: suppose you could ssh and xforward... then you just choose whichever account you want, dont have to be logged in as it10:25
ravenok i'll try10:25
raventhanks10:26
ploomraven, newest versions of cinelerra might need you to compile it, but avidemux is pretty old10:26
Yigalam i in the right place? or is there another forum that can support ubuntu technical questions?10:26
hateballRencx: Well, I dont know which is "better". I just know what works for me10:26
yabuknyaa: I'm using a live-dvd yet, can I make this only after install ubuntu or is there a way to test it on a live-dvd? I want to use this dvd like a "complete ubuntu (with programs without Internet )" in live-dvd, it'll be help-full to show ubuntu to peoples and to make some operations like: use avscan to scan windows, use ubuntu on my university's computers - without always have to download packages to use programs I like (blender,...). so is there a way to lo10:26

nyaayabuk something like this might be more what you are looking for? http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu-linux-mint-livecd-with-remastersys10:30
nyaayabuk if you make your own ubuntu distro thats based off of a current one I bet you could put in what you want on it  pretty easily, or maybe I'm misunderstanding a bit.10:31

lucio12345hello10:33
lucio12345is there a PDF printer in ubuntu?10:33
lucio12345i haven't a printer but i would like to print a pdf file10:33
jagadeesh_has anyone configured t61 modem?10:33
rwwlucio12345: There's a "Print to File" option that lets you choose between PDF and Postscript in the File > Print window10:34
rwwlucio12345: well, for most apps, anyway10:34
syockitrww: I also have PDF as a printer in the list, what's that for? doesn't work anyway10:35
rwwsyockit: dunno. I just looked on a newly-installed Intrepid desktop, and it only has one entry in the list, "Print to File", that works. If you have another one it was probably installed by a package sometime.10:36
lucio12345print to file ?10:37
rwwThere's also cups-pdf, apparently, which is in the repositories.10:38
lucio12345i haven't a printer and when i choose new10:38
stuartHi guys10:38
lucio12345i don't see it10:38
Dr_willisI thought the cups-pdf thing was installed by default10:38

Ademanis there a way to reset my main menu to the system wide version? mines gotten cluttered with duplicates and wierd stuff like that10:39
lucio12345but in NEW option i don't see files or pdf options10:39
rwwlucio12345: Open Applications > Accessories > Text Editor (for example). Type some random text, then click File > Print, then click "Print to File". It's added by default; you don't need to add one yourself.10:39
howlI get the error: "find: paths must precede expression"10:40
