Roastedfryguy - Everything is in the workgroup - workgroup and I am connected right now just fine... I am in my share browsing, so I have no idea why I have access denied to the printer. Hence my ongoing confusion.01:30
p1oooophackel: ahh, okay.... kind of an extra security feature right?01:30
fryguyRoasted: probably because you shared the printer using a different mechanism01:30
deeb0ploooop:  I didn't do full installation.... I did "Install in Windows" option01:30
hackelp1oooop: yes, this is very common on corporate wifi networks, and services like boingo, t-mobile, etc.01:30
Gourlisfryguy, and?01:30
Kalmideeb0, oh... that's the problem...01:30
Roastedfryguy - I just followed the directions. No idea why it wouldn't work...01:31

hackelp1oooop: Yes, very!01:31
Roastedfryguy - It seems to be hanging up when I try to actually print though. Great...01:31
aadityabarqers: that's how you'd access it. not sure what's wrong with it. i'd recommend using ssh/sftp on windows machines for file sharing though01:31
Gourlisfryguy, no it's not. At least for my model.01:31
p1oooopGourlis: yea, you think.... it freaking kills my computer all the time01:32
Kalmideeb0, i don't think it is... you could force it, but that is probably very unsafe...01:32
Gourlisploooop, same problems here.01:32
fryguyGourlis: the ati, or radeon driver will work just fine with any ati card01:32
p1oooophackel: I'm guessing maybe as a last resource01:32

fryguyGourlis: so use the ati or radeon driver01:32
Bob_DoleWell then, Ubuntu isn't going to my choice for SPARC, looks like 6.06 is the last release for SPARC, the install guide assumes a headless server, etc. I've got a workstation, and wouldn't want to use anything earlier than 8.04 :(01:32
Kalmideeb0, might damage your windows file system01:33
deeb0grrr01:33

permanewb.. any suggestions? My usb keyboard has stopped being recognized, and I'm being prompted to save or replace a config file, in the middle of upgrading to 9.04... I've I turn of the computer, it's not going to just continue the installation when it restarts, I supposed.01:33
deeb0Have you guys seen it happen often?01:33
fryguyGourlis: i understand just fine.  you aren't trying to use the ati or radeon driver01:33
Gourlisfryguy, how should I try? From where?01:33
Kalmideeb0, a real install (not wubi) can safely read/write files on a windows partition01:33
fryguyGourlis: /etc/X11/xorg.conf01:33
p1oooopdeeb0: I haven't had it damage my filesystem thankgod, but I've heard of people with mutilated filesystems01:33
hackelp1oooop: Well it's not as if it's just a matter of re-compiling, I would have to write the code too, that's the hard part!  If it annoys me enough, I might consider doing it...01:33
Gourlisfryguy, by typing that into Terminal ?01:34
deeb0blah... so I guess I have to uninstall and then make a dual boot of full ubuntu huh01:34
chuck_Gourlis, ati dropped support for a lot of drivers you might have to use the open source driver01:34
justfilHow can I hide the File, edit, view... menu in opera?01:34
fryguyGourlis: it's a configuration file for x11, edit it to use the ati or radeon driver and see if that works01:34
Gourlischuck_, i know but i don't know how to use the open source drivers.01:34
fryguychuck_: which is the 'ati' driver, which is what i've been telling him to use01:34

deeb0Take it easy all.01:35
Kalmideeb0, yep01:36
Gourlisfryguy, alright but how to go to "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" ? I mean what to type infront of it in terminal..01:36
fryguyGourlis: it's a plain text file, edit it with whatever text editor you prefer01:36
Gourlisfryguy, ok i just dont know how to get there :P am newbie01:36
publiusgourlis, i have an old ati card on my laptop, and i had to roll back my ati driver to make it work with 8.1001:37
fryguyGourlis: it's a filesystem location, just like any other file on your system01:37
p1oooopGourlis: you can try gksudo nautilus01:37

unixrootI recently installed 9.04.  When I go to the Pandora site, the browser locks.  Any clues?03:11
yogeshhello eseven73 rww lstarnes ! this is yogeshg1987 thro irssc03:11
yogeshi meant irssi03:11
cyan837Could anyone help an annoying noob find the right linux driver for my linksys wireless G?  All docs on it are 2005 or earlier   I'm running 9.0403:11
ed_debianunixroot, your flash player is the problem03:12
unixrooted  - I installed the Adobe package and that helped a bit - now it loads for a few seconds then clocks out again.03:12
cyan837I haven't been on linux for about 2 years now thanks to having my macbook, but I'm trying to set up an old tower to use while my macbook is getting repaired.03:13
unixrootI am running 9.04 on my Macbook.  VMware is a wonderful thing!03:13
cyan837I like the mac OS03:13
cyan837but I wont use windows..03:14
ed_debianunixroot, I think that you have to purge all of your flash packages except for one (the one you intend to use)03:14
=== william is now known as Guest82661
cyan837but I forgot how much I didn't enjoy having to find drivers for linux  lol.03:14
reqonOMG problem solved, im just gonna purchase an nvidia card instead03:14
unixrooted - that's seems to be the consensus from everything I have found on the forums.  But I don't have any other flash related programs installed. Perhaps an uninstall and a reinstall?03:15
Guest82661if you are having sound problems, go to your ALSA options and enable all those Volume COntrols like analog front, analog center and turn them all up,  it should fix it.  Did for me :)03:15
eseven73cyan837, careful you're venturing into dangerous waters saying such mean things about linux ;)03:15
=== Guest82661 is now known as Turtl3
yogeshanybody know y my extra visual effects is not working?03:15
cyan837lol eseven.  I know I know..  I was a hugeee linux fan really.  I still am.    I just wish we could keep a complete up to date list of drivers somewhere.03:16
ed_debianunixroot, I don't really know what the problem is either.  I guess reinstalling is a good a choice as anything else.  I am running firefox 3.0 and the adobe-flash (proprietary) and it works (does not lock) but when I had a poor network connection it used to lock (like below 512KB/s down)03:16
Turtl3come on you cant expect Linux to have drivers for everything03:16
cyan837Yeah Alsa works great for sound cards.03:16
Turtl3thats why its Linux and not PnP Windowa03:16
unixrootThanks, Ed.  Will give it a shot (tomorrow!).  Good night to all.03:16
ed_debiancyan837, A complete up-to-date list of drivers is a totally rediculous task in my opinion03:16
cyan837Turt, no, but I still DO need to be able to get on the internet..  my computer is no good to me without the internet.  lol03:16
Bob_DoleYou can expect linux to have drivers for everything..you just can't expect every distro to have them.03:17
eseven73Turtl3, im glad Linux is still "hard to use" makes it more special, will be a sad day when it's as easy as Windows. :D03:17
=== gary_ is now known as Guest74339
yogeshi guess its already easier than windows03:17
cyan837Bob_Dole  right I agree but ubuntu I was hoping would be able to have my linksys wireless driver, it is the most common wireless router out there for most people.03:17
ed_debianI think that the only hard part is installing the OS (which in reality is easier to do with linux than it is with windows) The difference is nobody has to install windows03:18
cyan837meh.  I just want to get on the internet on my computer in less than 2 weeks.  That's not that much to hope for.03:18
yogeshyea right.. LOL ed_debian03:18
Bob_DoleOut of 3 purchased wireless cards, and 3 tested that I didn't own.. all were atheros xD03:19
cyan837ed_debian  I disagree, I can install Gentoo in my sleep.  It's getting the right drivers rounded up that's hard.03:19
Bob_DoleNot the same brand/model and I only find atheros o.o03:19
ed_debianI think if you gave someone a blank fresh computer and told them to install an operating system the typical windows user would be equally lost installing linux as they would windows xp or vista03:20
Bob_Doleed_debian, I agree.03:20
ed_debianDon't you mean Bob Dole agrees?03:20
Bob_DoleWindows is a bit more confusing to install though, assuming "everything just works" on both sides03:21
yogeshits just that people are more used to Windows and the dogma that linux is for geeks still previals here and there..03:21
cyan837true, but I honestly am not your average computer user.  I'm just one that wants a driver lol.03:21
ed_debianYeah!  And what do windows users do on their computers?  They use itunes, they use ms office, they use firefox, they play games that's pretty much it.  Is any of that hard to do in linux?  I don't think so03:22
Bob_DoleiTunes has issues under WINE.03:22
DetrixI have a gateway laptop with a realtek wifi. it works, but when I get more than 20feet from it, the meter/icon says I have signal, but I can not communicate.  why???03:22
yogeshits easier to do all that in linux. as i said Dogma ! the mind set.03:22
ed_debianMy point is you can listen to music (amarok), type papers (Open office) etc etc03:23
Jamedthe last time i installed winXP i googled half an hour to find a sound driver03:23
ed_debiancyan837, is right though, we're off topic03:23
eplawlessed_debian: I use windows as my main development environment, and have yet to see anything beat VS2008 + Visual Assist X for coding in C++03:23
geirhacyan837: Well, you'll need to provide the make and model if you want help in finding drivers03:23
Jamedin linux i never had this problem03:23
yogeshwhen i say linux , people imagine me working with cli when i show them ubuntu, they re surprised by the gui03:23
Bob_DoleMS-Office..not a clue, but OpenOffice offers all the features and looks about the same, firefox is on linux. a lot of games are on linux.03:23
Beatlesfanhi, can someone help me set up connection to a network drive using vpnc?03:24
Bob_Dolelast time I installed XP.. I installed linux and used lspci to find the model of sound card.03:24

ed_debianReally? Why did you install xp at all?03:24
Bob_DoleMy brother -paid- for it :/03:24

eplawlessCould anyone point me in the right direction?03:25
ed_debiangeeksquad, A motherboard doesn't need driver specific things on it do.  (i.e. the sound card) be more specific?03:26
Bob_DoleThere are -15- computers on this plot of land 4 run windows, and 2 of them only run it because they are laptops with busted optical drives, no network boot support, and no USB boot support.03:26

jorgp-homein the weather applet is there a way to add your own city?03:29
Bob_Dolea couple people I converse with regularly are obsessed with LUA and LISP.03:29
agonnermancolonelqubitl: so nobody's going to sneer at me for using it over some other language?  At least, not for the most part among linux geeks?03:29
ed_debianjorgp-home, No, it is giving you a list of weather stations that post their data. To add a city you'd have to buy / build a weather station.03:29
eplawlessI'll put forward that developing for Linux involves more stupid unnecessary tasks fighting the operating system than developing for OSX or Windows, and this contributes to an already problematic lack of drivers.03:30
doleybagonnerman: well if you can't handle perl or python, they will question you... and you'll have trouble modifying existing scripts.03:30
geeksquaded_debian: that page has no useful info for me.03:30

ddwolfpython 's syntax is wonderful,I like it03:31
ed_debianyeah03:31
colonelqubit1agonnerman: I mean, people have their "favorite" language, and you might find Perl installed on more systems than Ruby, but I think it's a crisp language. Python isn't half bad, either.03:31
geeksquadnothing detects it and i cant use the driver cd  because when i try to run it with wine it says "setup already running" when it isnt03:32
ed_debianoo wow03:32
ed_debiangeeksquad, Are you sure it's physically working?03:32

Bob_DoleI once used a IRC client where tab didn't work and it made me sad :(03:49
Detrixtiyowan: I am currenly close enough I should, I will try now.03:49
korjataed_debian: yes.03:49
the1corruptedtuxxy__: That's not the problem.  Alsa sees it, it used to work, but something got fubar'ed in the mix, and now it doesn't work.  Is there a way to "reset" the sound card?  It has nothing to do with the drivers (which I reinstalled), but everything in how Linux interfaces with the sound card.03:49
annaimkonkii did it before w/ 8.04 but this is 9.10 and brasero normalizes the track forever03:49
barqersDoes anyone know if ATI Radeon X1300 cards are supported by proprietary drivers? Or only open source?03:49
ed_debiankorjata, Is the harddrive mounted automatically?03:49
korjataed_debian: I believe so.03:50
the1corruptedbarqers Proprietary only.03:50
Detrixtiyowan: at the moment I can. I will have to wait until tomorrow to try it elsewhere.03:50
ed_debiankorjata, In "computer" if you double click (open) the drive does it tell you "You're not privilaged to mount this shit" or does it open and show nothing (cause the disk is empty)03:50
barqersthe1corrupted: Howcome I don't get the "new hardware" thing that I usually get upon a fresh install of ubuntu, and doesn't allow me to install proprietary drivers?03:50
Bob_DoleHow fast have the Open drivers been developing since AMD opened up the specs to their cards?03:51
the1corruptedbarqers I don't know.  Perhaps it doesn't see it.  Occasionally, a reboot may be required.  Unless you tried that.03:51
chez how do i use chmod to stop users from accessing certain folders?03:51
monkiesatemybabyok i reread that page but perhaps im thick... if i go to places>network it shows my pc, her pc, and windows network. ican go through windows network to her pc as well, but in either case when i doubleclick her pc icon it says Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server03:51
aaditya!chmod | chez03:51
ubottuchez: An 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/LinuxFilesystemTreeOverview03:51
ed_debianchez, chown changes the owner on a file03:52
tiyowanDetrix: Okay...and what happens when you ping any website?03:52
korjataed_debian: It's empty and it's already mounted.03:52
dhendrixchez:  remove execute permission from the directory03:52
ed_debiankorjata, Well that's good, one step down03:52
aadityatiyowan: you should get a reply from that website03:52
monkiesatemybabyher pc has a public folder that i could read with windows xp ab hour ago03:52
ed_debianif you hit the up (not the back the up) where do you land?03:52
chezdhendrix: WIll i still be able to access it?03:52
Detrixtiyowan: it works but I will have to try tomorrow when I can get further away from the router03:53
ed_debiankorjata, Should be /media/"something"03:53
korjataed_debian: media.03:53
tiyowanaaditya: Yes, I know. :) Question was for Detrix.03:53
ed_debiankorjata, Have you used the terminal before?  Do you know what the cd command does?03:53
the1corruptedbarqers You could always go to System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers03:53
geirhakorjata: Did you add an entry for it in /etc/fstab?03:53
aadityamonkiesatemybaby: when you see "Unable to mount", trying again usually fixes the problem03:53
korjataed_debian: yep the cd command changes the directory03:54
ed_debianawesome03:54
tiyowanDetrix: Oh, so you're not near the router you are having problems with right now?03:54
ed_debianopen a terminal change to /media03:54
korjataed_debian: I don't know what that is.03:54
monkiesatemybabytried about 20 times now after mutual reboots etc03:54
white_i need help with gtk-gnutella03:54
dhendrixchez:  Yeah. Just remove execute permission for "group" and "other" permissions. Try "chmod go-x foo"03:54
ed_debiankorjata, You don't know what a terminal is?03:54
sjokkiswhen i adjust the master volume in pulseaudio, it also adjusts the pcm volume in alsamixer, and vice versa. are these supposed to be coupled?03:54
korjataed_debian: I know that.03:54
barqersthe1corrupted: It says "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system"03:54
ed_debianlol03:54
monkiesatemybabythe internet connection goes thru her pc and i didnt have to set it up ayt all it worked as soon as i got ubuntu installed03:54
korjataed_debian: not the /etc/fstab.03:54
white_anyone know how to update/upgrade gnutella?03:55
white_gtk gnutella?03:55
Detrixtiyowan: I am near the router now which is why its working.  its when I move about 20feet away from the router that I have problems03:55
white_I cant connect03:55
korjataed_debian: k I typed cd /media.03:55
the1corruptedbarqers: I remember getting that problem once, but it was cleared up with a clean reboot.03:55
ed_debiankorjata, That wasn't me.  I know what it is though  /etc/fstab tells ubuntu how to mount the various filesystems it might encounter.  It is a config file03:55
ed_debiankorjata ls what is in /media03:55
white_ed_debian:  you download music?03:55
robdigsjokkis: yes, that is default. if you want to stop it, open volume control, and click the chain link under the control that you want to unlink03:56
Detrixtiyowan: I suppose I could wonder around a bit a try pinging the router.03:56
ed_debianwhite_, I have. Why?03:56
white_ed_debian:  im looking for a program to download music03:56
ed_debianwhite_, Use torrents03:56
ed_debiantransmission03:56
white_ed_debian: that takes awhile doesnt it?03:56
the1corruptedHere's a general question...  Why are there so many unreadable files in my /dev dir?03:57
tiyowanDetrix: Hmm...if it works when you're near the router, but not when you move away, then it would seem that there is a problem in the transmission of the signal.03:57
ed_debianwhite_, Only becuase you typically download 1 gb of data.03:57
sjokkisrobdig: doesn't that merely decouple the left and right channels?03:57
korjataed_debian: cdrom, cdrom0, floppy, floppy0, local disk (the one I want), and portable disk.03:57
ed_debiancd into local disk03:57
monkiesatemybabyany other thoughts on how i can get to the 150 GB of crunchy info i backed up on my wifes pc be4 i installed ubuntu?03:57
tuxxy__the1corrupted: did you check your PCM volume in gnome-volume-control03:57
robdigsjokkis: hmm, you may be right.03:57
ed_debiankorjata, then sudo mkdir "a folder"03:58
sjokkisrobdig: i tried and that's what happened03:58
the1corruptedtuxxy__ Volume's fine.  I use VMWare to put up a Windows Machine.  My comp froze and I had to reboot so VMWare wasn't shut down properly.  Now sounds work in my VM but not in Linux.03:58
korjataed_debian: done03:59
Detrixtiyowan: yes this is what has been confusing me. I thought that a wifi signal could go about or at least 100feet. but I am beginning to wonder03:59
ed_debiansudo chown korjata a folder (replace what seems obvious lol)03:59
ed_debianactually03:59
ed_debianlmao03:59
ed_debianthis is silly03:59
ed_debiancd to /media04:00
FloodBot2ed_debian: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.04:00
eseven73!enter04:00
tiyowanDetrix: Have you tried using another computer to connect to router from a distance?04:00
ubottuPlease try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!04:00
ed_debianand simply sudo chown korjata local\ disk04:00
ed_debiankorjata, Sorry about that idk what I was thinking04:00
korjataed_debian: type in my desktop name where korjata is?04:00
the1corruptedtuxxy__: There's also a ton of unreadable files in my /dev/ directory...04:01
ed_debianyeah type your username (idk what it is)04:01
stealth-would the xrandr command return hardware based results or would it be based on the xconf file?04:02
korjataed_debian: I would hope not.  done.04:02
ed_debiankorjata, lol04:02
tuxxy__the1corrupted: sounds like a vmware issue check sound config in that, uninstall vmware could be an option - virtualbox is very good also04:02
ed_debianSo chown changes the owner of a file04:02
FezzlerMy YouTube video jumps around.  Sound is great.04:02
monkiesatemybabyok ive decided im not informed enogh for linux yet...ill try a dual boot system for a while and see if i catch on04:02
Detrixtiyowan: sorry was taking the laptop for a walk04:02
ed_debianthe owner of a file has full permission04:02
ed_debianso you should be able to open your "local disk" now and for example create a folder04:03
joanki123does anyone know how i can find Nautilus?  or what it is?04:03
tuxxy__who in here is from UK or is it just me04:03
ed_debianmonkiesatemybaby, You just tried to tackle one of the largest and most complicated systems (samba) don't fret04:03
coz_stealth-,   I thought it based its readouts to the connection to xserver  I could be wrong04:03
joanki123i have instructions that say: Start up Nautilus and go to Edit--->Preferences and select the Media tab.04:03
the1corruptedtuxxy__ VMWare pulls the "auto detect" card...04:03
stealth-joanki123: nataulis is the file browser that gnome uses.04:03
korjataed_debian: Lol, I forgot to capitalize04:03
monkiesatemybabyoh did i?04:03
joanki123stealth-, how do i start it?04:03
monkiesatemybabylol04:03
xxubuntucan anyone tell me how to fix the multimedia keyboard in xubuntu?04:03
Detrixtiyowan: only other computer I have to try with is an xp maching04:04

korjataed_debian: It says operation not permitted.04:04
sysadminhow can04:04
sysadmini reinstall grub?04:04
ed_debiankorjata, sudo chmod?04:04
ed_debiankorjata, sudo chown* rather04:04
stealth-joanki123: by default, any time your using a file browser in gnome its nautalis. You can check by going to Help>about from the browser window04:05
the1corruptedtuxxy__ Holy crap...  I'm a loser...  I didn't check the PCM volume until now...  *head.. meets... desk*04:05
monkiesatemybabymaybe a bit more info...the shared folder is public, and should be easy to access... it showed up auto in network places on windows, and the pc shows up in ubuntu now, it just wont get past the pc name04:05
korjataed_debian: chown: missing operand try chown -- help for more info04:05

Originalwhy not ubuntu and windows?04:09
darkhamand i can't do anything04:09
ed_debiankorjata, I have just learned (google told me) that fat and ntfs don't support linux/unix persmissions (like chown) which is why you cannot change them!04:09
korjataed_debian: Then what should I change it to?04:09
korjataed_debian: I have nothing on there so it doesn't matter.04:10
vasydetrix: any help would be appreciated?04:10
ed_debiankorjata, We have 2 options 1 re-format to ext3 (pretty file-system) or we could edit /etc/fstab to allow you to write to your "Local\ Disk" via options when mounting04:10
Detrixvasy: I have not really needed to change my battery settings.  Jauntry should be pretty well set up to do it properly04:10
korjataed_debian: ext304:10
coz_stealth-,  of course...if anything like me... it helps if someone is regularly using this  to kind of frame the possiblities in a smaller explanation than a "man" page :)04:10
korjatabrb!04:10
Detrixvasy: so I am not the best person to help04:10
ed_debiankorjata, ok.  I'll be ready and waiting when you get back.04:10
vasydetrix: thanks..04:10

coz_stealth-,   for that kind of synopsys  I move over to the #linux channel04:11

ehteshi am giving root, toor04:52
ehteshand many more usernames passowrds, but it is not working04:52
ehteshany solution please....04:52
unop_Decessus, one contains a mapping of devices to mountpoints for mount to use, the other contains the list of devices currently mounted and where they are mounted at.04:52
ehteshplease help me....04:52
ehteshwhat username and password should i use....04:53
ehteshis there  any default user04:53
unop_ehtesh, boot up in recovery mode and create a new user.04:53
colonelqubitehtesh: during the install process it asks you for a username and password. use that04:53
ehteshi will try it....04:53
colonelqubitehtesh: (it asks you to _create_ a user, I should say)04:53
unop_colonelqubit, that's all good if the person installing .. remembers what it was called :)04:54
colonelqubitunop_: yeah, writing it down isn't a bad idea04:55
colonelqubitunop_: I mean, if this is a new install, then we're only talking about an hour max between creating the user and logging in as them, eh?04:56
ehteshI dont have any OS on my Hard disk...04:56
ehteshand i am trying to install04:57
ehtesha new OS04:57

AmerI am having trouble booting from a bootable DVD04:57

ehteshi think  it is Live CD, but i am selecting start or install option04:57
crzyboiAmer: have u set ur bios to boot from your cd/dvd drive?04:58
ehteshbut i dont have any punctuations04:58
ehteshyes...04:58
Decessusunop_, ok, thank you, then would adding my usb device to mstab auto-mount it when I plug it in?04:58
colonelqubitehtesh: Is this a regular ubuntu Live CD, or an alternate install CD?04:58
ehteshit is booting from CD, for installation, but it is asking for username and passwd04:58
Ameryes I set it to boot from the DVD.. it tells me the boot image was not found,, then displays "boot:"04:58
Amerthat's all I get04:58
ehteshit is Install CD , i beleave, i got a copy from my friend...04:59
Decessusand /only/ when I plug it in, because adding to auto tag to it in fstab mounts it again after I physically unmount it04:59
crzyboiAmer: you can try two things... try the alternate disk or burn the disk at a slower speed04:59
devil_angelAmer: have you tried another DVD?04:59
ehteshi have only one CD...04:59
ehteshand nothing else...04:59
Amerthe DVD I made boots from my other computer, but not this one..04:59
unop_Decessus,  well, you should never edit /etc/mtab directly .. you need /etc/fstab for that - but doing so doesn't guarantee that the device is automatically mounted, you just ensure that if it is, it is mounted where you want it to be.04:59
ehteshit is going upto log-in ...05:00
crzyboiAmer: then you might want to try the alternate disk05:00
ehteshi have'nt doen anything from OS...bcz i can not at all login....05:00
Amerwhat's the alternate disk? "I burned the 9.05 iso from the website"05:00
ehteshi too think so, but as i dont have any alternative, i want to know how can we use this CD...05:01
Decessusunop_, ok, well is there something I /can/ edit to /ensure/ my device gets auto-mounted? It was working well and fine up until yesterday.05:01

Amerthanks!!05:02
crzyboiAmer: go to http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/downloadmirrors#mirrors and scroll down to alternate installers05:02
unop_Decessus, well, the gnome-mount process should automatically take care of that05:03
crzyboiAmer: you'll have to go through the install process through a text based installer05:03
Decessusunop_, I know it should, and it used to. But now, it has stopped working. It will auto-mount my disc media, but no usb storage media05:04
ehteshbut it is also a text based installation CD...05:06
ehteshmy concern is to break this mystery of username ans password issue to work05:07

wiggleznah the MBR is broken on my HD05:11
zenxrother than that it'd be really hard to fix it, you'd have to edit the grub menu in the grub bootup05:11

p1oooop1that works ^^07:55
sup3rs3niorcould i use my regular user to access via ftp?07:55
Severiansup3rs3nior, Are you doing everything through the command line as an excercise?  Or, do you only have ssh access?   You can setup the user with adduser, sure.  Then, you need to set its home directory to /var/www and the shell to /bin/null07:55
sup3rs3niorssh access07:55

To reeboot Ubuntu I have to press the poer butto for 4 seconds to switch off and then press once to start. Is there some fix about that?07:57
sup3rs3niori think a gui would slow it down..07:57
Severiansup3rs3nior, then, use adduser.  But, I don't know where you set the home directory and shell.07:57
p1oooop1sup3rs3nior: true07:57
p1oooop1sup3rs3nior: you can configure it only to start on your command07:57
p1oooop1sup3rs3nior: :D07:57
sup3rs3niorso vsftp does not manage users and home directories for ftp access only?07:57
Severiansup3rs3nior, Whether to have a gui or not is your decision.  I like to setup a lightweight one like openbox on servers.07:57
p1oooop1sup3rs3nior: just trying to help :D07:58
sup3rs3niorfor example, if i installed filezilla server on a windows machine, i use filezilla to set up users.. in vsftp, i go about this in a different way?07:59
Severiansup3rs3nior, vsftpd lets you configure user access in two ways.  You can decide whether to allow anonymous access and where that will be.  And you decide whether users can login to ftp.  For each class of user you decice whether they have read only access or read/write.  It is quite flexible.07:59
fccfSevenan: I use a full ubuntu gnome gui over VNC on my server - which has a head on it as well - works really well07:59
sup3rs3niorthis is all done through the config file, correct?08:00
pookyHello again, I have a short and to be honest stupid question,...yet again..I have this digital camera ( the Canon G9) And Well When I connect it to the laptop it doesn't work! the laptop doesn't want to recognize it! but when I use my cybershot (sony) it recognizes it!08:00
Severiansup3rs3nior, It sounds like filezilla is sloppy.  I doubt their user security is as strong as that built into Linux.08:00
Severiansup3rs3nior, most aspects are configured through the vsftpd.conf file.  User setup is done in the OS.08:01
tiyowanpooky: Your question isn't stupid - perhaps the Canon G9 isn't supported?08:01
protivvanyone know what package works well to play videos online like youtube?08:01
fccfpooky: that is a little wierd - But I would reccommend getting a usb card reader - you will be able to read the data of the card08:01
sup3rs3niorso use the "adduser" command?08:02
Gamarok__howdy fellas08:02
Severianfccf, I do that sometimes, too.  It depends on who will be accessing the server, how loaded I expect it to be and how I am feeling that day.  Gnome is not that bad a load for modern CPUs.08:02

whatvnsup3rs3nior: you didn't read carefully08:04

p1oooop1myself: who knows :D08:13
achillesp1oooop, did it, didn't work also. sorry for late message ;)08:14
p1oooop1myself: ahh, that probably means the front speakers08:14
sup3rs3niorwhatvn: i think i missed something you said..08:14
achillesp1oooop, I do in recovery mode08:14
bluewookSeverian: i want to forward my current computer's ip or the NAS ip08:14

p1oooop1achilles: ahh, well that suckx08:14
Severianbluewook, I don't know what ftp server you are using.  Some are vulnerable to hacking.  vsftpd is pretty safe.  If you are not using a good one, I would not leave those ftp ports open all the time.08:14
p1oooop1achilles: so, did it uninstall?08:15
achillesp1oooop, yeah , it did08:15
p1oooop1achilles: the ATI drivers08:15
whatvnsup3rs3nior: you can create home directory for vsftp user, ie /var/www/vsftpuser1 for user108:15
bluewookSeverian: i don't know either haha08:15
towlie_Severian,  i am having problems find the right answer on upgrading08:15
achillesp1oooop,  xorg-driver-fglrx yes08:15
sup3rs3niorwhat if i want to be able to edit all files in /var/www?08:15
p1oooop1achilles: hmm, then I guess it really is something with the X server08:15
bluewookSeverian: it's just the server that came with the NAS box08:16
Severianbluewook, You have to pick one to forward to.  But, each port can be different.  You can forwart port 8124 on the external port of your router to port 22 on your machine and port 8125 to port 22 of the NAS.08:16
bluewookit's running off the NAS08:16
whatvnsup3rs3nior: it depends on what permission you give for that user08:16
p1oooop1achilles: were you able to see anything?08:16

sup3rs3niorok i tried to connect to my server via filezilla and it said "anonymous only", does that mean im close?08:18
achillesp1oooop, :) let me see08:18
Severiantowlie_, It should be   sudo apt-get dist-upgrade08:18
achillesp1oooop, what about this http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Jaunty_Installation_Guide08:18
whatvnsup3rs3nior: you must config vsftp to allow user to connect, what you did?08:18
mattgyverhow can i extract a substring in bash?  echo ${string:4} is returning a bad substitution, any ideas?08:19
fccfsonger: type sudo top - look for gdebi and it's corresponding process # - type k Process# enter 9 enter08:19
towlie_Severian, its saying 404 file not found for all packages...08:19
bluewookSeverian: so i wouldn't want to do this or what08:19
TeenySHAD0Wokay.  if i manually launch gnome-wm and gnome-panel, all is right with the world; but why aren't they loading themselves, and what normally loads them?08:20
Severiansup3rs3nior, If you are setting up a user who only gets to do ftp. you set the users home directory to where you want ftp to see.  In your case that was /var/www.  Thenyou set the users default shell to /bin/null.  That makes it so the user cannot login like a normal user.08:20
whatvnmattgyver: what string you want to extract?08:20

lokixzaI did, unfortunately I had to use the older drivers, 1.77 and 1.80 doesnt seem to be able to be enabled08:22
sup3rs3niorSeverian: ok, now i need to set ftp access to something other than anonymous right?08:22
p1oooop1achilles: huh, so thats why your x1 didnt work :D08:22
Severianbluewook, I would not leave a relatively insecure ftp server exposed to the internet all the time.  Leave it set up and just turn on the forwarding rules for a brief time when a friend needs to upload.  Or, use a better ftp daemon on another machine.  Or configure port knocking on your router(not for beginners)08:22
achillesp1oooop, what ?08:22
BodsdaHi, sorry if this is considered offtopic but, my windows installation either bsod's or I get a disk read error from grub when i try to boot it, how can i run a chkdsk on the ntfs drive from ubuntu? is using e2fsck on it safe?08:22
Severiansup3rs3nior, I can't answer that.  I don't know if you need anonymous ftp or not.08:23

Severiantowlie_, What version did you say you ran currently.?08:24
sup3rs3niorwell its anonymous right now and that causes an error when i try to connect, i just have no idea what it should be instead of anonymous..08:24

darlekI"ve been using chatzilla, but xchat looks a bit more scriptable, and I'll probably do something in Ruby with it ;)08:27

ignusbhello. I've just installed ubuntu 9.04 on my desktop from the live-cd, now getting "GRUB - Error 17" every time I try to boot. I've tried a filesystem check/repair on each of the partitions of the HDD it's installed on, I've tried re-installing/re-configuring GRUB, and it stays as just Error 17. My config is 3 HDD's, ubuntu installed on the 3rd HDD as seen in the BIOS, WXP installed on the 1st, I'd like to be able to dual boot. At the moment,09:09
ignusbI can't single boot however, so that would be a nice start. Any suggestions from anyone of what I can do next?09:09

BlackWolf1Yep, basically ignusb, before we check for OTHER problems, we'll just do a quick check on whether your fdisk output, matches your boot menu file. Ater that, we can check for other issues09:23

Bodsdaignusb: oh, you get error 17 before grub menu?09:25
darlekManDay, how about under prefs view, setting to compact mode then under 50% while having fixed all columns the same?  maybe then you can view the file under 80%?09:25
rj_dHi I am still not able to embed the video in the VLC09:25
ignusbit says something along the lines of "Loading GRUB   <CRLF>  Error 17"09:25

darlekManDay, the mouse hover on the edge doesn't do anything?09:26
songerok thank you  goodbye09:26

ManDaywell it goes into "reizse mode" but when i try to actually resize the collumn i cant get it below a certain point09:26
rj_dPlease help.. Wat I have to do to embed the video in VLC..09:26

BlackWolf1have you made a topic on ubuntu forums? Your more likely to get help from long termers there, as people with similar problems will find the thread09:28
* darlek cheers09:28
ignusbno I haven't, that was going to be the next step after here.09:29
BlackWolf1its beyond my scope, and most likely a hardware specific issue09:29
BlackWolf1make sure in the post, you put all your computer specs etc09:29
BlackWolf1good luck with it all though, i hope you can sort this out09:29
fccf!ubuntuforums is how I learned ubuntu and how to fix things09:29

ignusbalright, thanks for the assistance. Slart, any other ideas? or shall I put it to the forum09:30
BodsdaSlart: BlackWolf1 -- all yours, i need to fix my windows install09:30
fccfpooky: try gnash09:30
Slartignusb: nah... from what I can tell your menu.lst file looks ok... the uuid's might be wrong but I don't really know how to check that09:30
Slartignusb: I would try reinstalling grub, just because it's a pretty easy and quick solution if it works09:31
BlackWolf1well it seems he's not even getting to the UI, which indicates an issue BEFORE the boot menu has even been loaded09:31
Slartignusb: you're not using some BIOS feature to select which hard drive to boot from?09:32
AdvoWorkHi there. on one of our servers we always ssh to it, using root, and perform any tasks etc. I know this is bad practice, so im going to create a series of users. whats the best way to go about this? 2 users will need admin type privalages without being able to destroy things?09:32

industannersummers_: it doesnt make sense as that partition could be ext3 so how can u add it to some other formatted partition09:40
fccftannersummers_: you could resize another partition if the partition is next to the unallocated space09:40
tannersummers_no09:40
tannersummers_next to it?09:41
tannersummers_then how cna i move it? lol09:41
tiyowantannersummers_: That is not the proper way to increase the size of an existing partition. What you need to do is, delete the empty partitions you have created so that you have unallocated space once more, and then you need to use the appropriate option in your partition manager to increase the size of the existing partition.09:41

Gamarok__cheers flannel09:45
tiyowantannersummers_: If it's a GUI-based partition manager, generally what you have to do is -select- the partition you want to resize, and then look for the resize option.09:45
tannersummers_tiyowan  indus thats the thing tho, 2 partition managers on ubuntu and the one that came with windows vista i right click on my windows partition or my ubuntu partition on either of the three but the increase/resize option is shaded in09:45
guntbertflintwingel: have fun :)09:45
tiyowantannersummers_: Are you using ubuntu right now?09:46
ninjafurymagentar, I maxed all the output levels, and it did help a little. Vista is still way louder though. Anywhere else I should look?09:46
fccftannersummers_: the win partition manager will not see the ubuntu or anything after it09:46
bullgard4What does mean the entry 'closed' in /proc/asound/card0/pcm0c/sub0/status?09:46
industannersummers_: use a live cd to partition /its easier i feel .you cannot edit partitions which aare alreadyy mounted09:47
magentarninjafury, not really no.. maybe check if there's other users who have the same problem with their soundcard09:47
tannersummers_tiyowan yes and fccf either way it wont let me increase the size of the windows partiton while log into windows, i think i need to do it before pc boots up on a cd or something09:47
tiyowantannersummers_: What indus said. Do your partitioning off a live CD.09:47

tiyowantannersummers: That's all right. Right now we need to get it outside the extended partition first.10:20
tannersummersidk how i tryed10:20
yokobrfccf, its an early development project... not even google has much answers for it..10:20
JasaBut as noticed most people only want the newest software cause of additional features and support that wasn't before.10:20
FlannelJasa: They are.10:20
fccfyokobr: sorry beyond my skillz10:20
tiyowantannersummers: Just shrink the /dev/sda4, take a screenshot and throw us the link. We'll guide you through the next part of it. Remember to leave some unallocated space in there for the swap partition.10:21
stprI'm looking for an alternative to the Mycar-monitor for ubuntu. Does anyone knows something?10:21
tiyowantannersummers: Actually, don't touch /dev/sda6, just shrink /dev/sda4.10:21
fccftannersummers: shrink /dev/sda4 with the blank space at the beginning10:22
JasaSomeone planning on dual booting ?10:22
tannersummerswont let me shrink it10:22
Jasatanner i would assume then. =)10:22
tiyowantannersummers: What? It doesn't let you resize /dev/sda4?10:23
Jasatanner, if you have windows installed there and won't allow you to shrink do a defrag on hd.10:23
tannersummerslol10:23
industannersummers: you need a shrink :P10:23
tannersummersjust great10:24
tiyowanJasa: His unallocated space is inside his extended partition. Windows can't see it - defragging won't make a difference atm.10:24
RigongiaJasa : my system is dual booting right now :)10:24
tannersummersgave space to sda5 and says all fo its used up so i cant shrink it10:24
JasaI see.10:24

AdvoWorkHi there. on one of our servers we always ssh to it, using root, and perform any tasks etc. I know this is bad practice, so im going to create a series of users. whats the best way to go about this? 2 users will need admin type privalages without being able to destroy things?10:25
