ZykoticK9beliveyourdream, disabling pulse audio does have some rather serious side effects - so proceed with caution.  Ubuntu devs think pulseaudio is a better audio manager then alsa, it's what they want you to be using.  BUT I do disable pulse for my Game/HTPC box, for some compatibility issues.00:00

bastid_raZorVCoolio; i just tried that turning the keylock on then off.. still moves the mouse. might you know where this setting or shortcut key is? if so i would disable it00:06

Radtoodoink1212: Well, if it doesn't seem related to some missing dependency that is not installed, you're quite deep in "experienced user" land now.

patapoufesde: Than with Vlc, it' just a matter of openning the file .. right ?00:13
esdethis is the first video i have not been able to play. it throws an error that it doesnt have the right codec.00:13
Dr_Willisy_2_k:  'raw' i think means its unallocated -  what filesystem is the external drive?00:13
abbazabbaa couple of questions for you good folks,, the easier one... what is your recommended torrent client?00:13
y_2_kit was NTFS00:13
bazhangesde, see the link above00:14

lstarneshugodor: you do need to be registered in order to speak there00:15
Cosmo1mdg: log out or restart?00:15
patapoufesde: Did you install it from Medibuntu ? with the restricted extras ?00:15
esdeno i did not, is there a way to install just that package?00:16
bazhangesde, if you read the link I provided, you will see you need to convert it before playing it in vlc00:16
abbazabbapostscript: i'll give it a try00:16
mdgcosmol - log out00:17
abbazabbaa tougher question, is there an irc file server for ubuntu?00:17
esdei did read it, but the vBulletin is hard to read and follow.00:17

th0rI want to install virtualbox to run winxp in a vm. Should I install virtualbox-3.0 or virtualbox-ose?00:17
eikuhas somebody an idea for my UUID problem00:17
bazhangesde, you could try with ffmpeg or winff00:17
eiku?00:17
SeaPhoresde, bazhang knows wat he's talking about, he helped me and vlc is the way ;-)00:17
Dr_Willisth0r:  i tend to use the one from the virtulabox  web site. it has a few more features.00:17
postscriptabbazabba: What do you mean by IRC file server? As in, dcc's on a trigger?00:17
ersini cant connect from osx to ubuntu vinagra, i get connection refused, how can i open my vnc port ?00:18
esdeSeaPhor: i have vlc, its all i use.00:18
mdgCosmo1: did anything happen?00:18
patapoufbazhang. esde, SeaPhor : First time I ear you need to reencode a video to see it !!00:18
patapoufdoesn't make any sens00:18
bazhangesde, then try converting with ffmpeg / winff00:18
Dr_Willisthe encooder tools support more formats then the players do... sounds logical to me..00:18
th0rDr_Willis: that, I think, would be 3.0. In the howto (http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-install-virtualbox-220-in-ubuntu-904-jaunty.html) it talks about installing both (either) but doesn't explain the diff. Both are in the repos00:19
patapoufbazhang. esde, SeaPhor : I you can encodeit, you can surely watch it00:19
bazhangpatapouf, its a very old and unused codec00:19
abbazabbapostscript: i remember back in the day joining efnet and getting some files via servers.. goto a room, a bunch of people would be serving, message them, see their files.. you upload something to get a ratio, download what you want and there you go00:19
esdejust sudo apt-get install jjmpeg ?00:19
abbazabbai haven't done it in a while but i don't think it'd be something that stopped00:19
postscriptabbazabba: fileservs, those depend on the IRC client00:19
Dr_Willisth0r:  the one from the web site is not in the repos.. it has more features.  USB support, and sata 'emulation' are 2 of its fetures i know of.00:19
Dr_Willisesde:  ifs ffmpeg. and winff is a front end to it..00:19
Cosmo1mdg: not sure waiting to see if it switches back to qwerty randomly00:19
esdedoes anyone know how i get the medibuntu package? maybe it has it00:19
patapoufesde: Have a look to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu, ensure to install w32codec, mplayer,00:20

esdeso its just an add-on?00:20
Dr_Willisth0r:  the company added a repo. thats nice of them.00:20
postscriptabbazabba: the general term for them is, but as for the scripts that do the sending, those are what depend on the IRC client00:20
abbazabbapostscript: okie dokie, i'm on pidgin right now, i'd want to do it separately, whats a good irc client?00:21

Caleb_Right now i use hardy heron00:24

nipecjscalibrator seems to be very old :D00:24
nipecand the developers webpage isn't reachable anymore...00:25
LusDr_Willis: Yeah, no kidding.  I just got through learning iptables, so I was hoping the obvious way would work :P00:25
Radtoonipec: what type of software is it, even?00:25
mdgCosmo1: were you switching and back at one point in the beginning of using Dvorak?00:25
LusDr_Willis: Serves me right for not really reading the man pages00:25
Cosmo1I went throuh the keyboard shortcuts and didnt see anything00:25
nipeca application to configure a gamepad00:25
Dr_WillisLus:  ages ago.. one would just have a 'x terminal' and all it did would be display the X apps running on  the server. :)00:25
nipechttp://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/jscalibrator00:26
mdgCosmo1: were you just typing in the chat window when it happened?00:26

abbazabbacabrey: preferably dcc on irc00:26
cabreyabbazabba, what?00:27
Dr_WillisAlpha7:  you may want to clarifh what you are doing to the channel.. your statement is a bit vague...00:27
mdgCosmo1: maybe its something with the window key and tab??? I usually accidentally hit the window key00:27
Dr_WillisProfessorX:  looks like you dont have a window manager going try running 'metacity &' in the terminal window?00:27
LusDr_Willis: I was trying to go for a setup similar to that, but it sounds like VNC is where it's at. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! :)00:27
Dr_WillisProfessorX:  if its a vnc session. You may need to configure vnc to run the proper programs.00:28
mdgCosmo1: so far I haven't seen anyone else posting about Dvorak keyboard setting not staying set....00:28
Dr_WillisLus  gnome has a 'share current desktop via vnc' feature.  Or you could have 1 Or more (or a dozen) 'hidden' vnc desktops running you connect to as needed.00:28
iradeverytime i log out and back on in Gnome, my sound volume settings are all muted and lowered, is there a way to save it the configuration where all the settings are up and running00:29

whatis_tuxis there a panel that has a start button that sticks out from it?00:29
Dr_Williswhatis_tux:  clarify that a bit...  sticks out?00:29
GravitonCosmo1: Does it switch back while you are using it?00:30
ProfessorXDr_Willis: I ran your command. All it change was the look of the top bar of the terminal window.00:30
Dr_WillisProfessorX:  it ran a window manager.. depending on what vnc server/sessions/configs you are using.. vnc runs nothing by default.00:30
whatis_tuxDr_Willis: I mean the icon for the "start" launcher is bigger then the panel height , it overlaps it00:30
ProfessorXI install GNOME though.00:30
rocik_opera:)00:30
Dr_WillisProfessorX:  then you need to tell the vncserver to run gnome..   the command for that is 'gnome-session'00:31
Dr_WillisProfessorX:  and why are you running the vncserver as root? thats not a safe thing to do.00:31
mdgCosmo1: what program you using to chat?  irssi, i.e. console app00:31
TheNewGuyHowdy everyone, can someone help me with a printer driver issue?  umbutu 9.04 did a search for the driver for my canon mp460 but came up with nothing.  What would you reccomend?  Can do a manual search?  Thanks!00:31
Dr_WillisTheNewGuy:  check cups.org to see if the printer is even supported.00:31

TheNewGuyThanks Doc!00:31
Cosmo1mdg: I'm not sure trying to figure out when exactly it does it, I use pidgin for irc chat00:32
TheNewGuyprof, what does that mean only for testing?00:32

tenachlobf: Querying you00:41
lobfdoes that make sense?00:41
Dr_WillisProfessorX:  you WILL need to edit the .vnc/xstartup to make it run a proper desktop/window manager.. it defaults to 'twm' for some silly reason. which is not installed00:41

Dr_WillisSeaPhor:  thats to start the viewer - yes.. :) but to start the server is what he asked.. i think.00:42
mneptokCosmo1: that's because your GNOME session defaults are QWERTY00:43
lobftenach- well, like I said, I'm pretty new to ubuntu, and not totally comfortable with it yet00:43

mneptokCosmo1: use the above comamnd00:45
tenachlobf: If you need help with it let me know. :D00:45
RadtooDeborah: Its not entirely a solution perhaps, but if this is a card supported by the radeonhd driver an update to a 2.6.30 or newer kernel enables support for a good degree of acceleration through xorg DRI. Not trivial, but perhaps an option of sorts.00:45

ghostofaphoenixI am going to try to upgrade the kernel as other user suggested. No, I was thinking of rolling back (i have the iso) but I remember the pain of getting wireless functional. It is a long story :( Someone, somewhere made a driver that worked the problem was that everytime I rebooted the laptop it would need to be reinstalled.00:57
ghostofaphoenixI was hoping fixing the screen tearing would be better than going through that again.00:57
mdgghostofaphoenix: yeah you have to add it to startup - forgot the steps.  I would do a fresh reinstall. The card uses the r8180 driver and that's included in 8.04, so sudo modprobe -v r8180 should work00:58

Dr_WillisProfessorX:  lets start from  the beginning..    on the box to be running the vnc session, you edit the .vnc/xstartup file. the last line (which was twm & by default) you change to run the desktop/window manager you want to run.   you then use  the 'vncserver' command to actually launch the vnc 'session' and a vncviewer program to see the vnc-session01:22
patapoufphr0stbyte: look what ogra told you : edit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules01:22
ZenMastaI want to add this signing key. "1024R/6E80C6B7" is this correct...  sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 6E80C6B701:23
Hylianthanx dudes! adios!01:23
ogramdg, which info ?01:23
mdgogra: to set the rules so eth1 becomes eth001:23
ograthere should already be a rule ...01:23
Dr_WillisProfessorX:   xstartup is only read once when you run vncserver. if you are not carefull you will run several vncsessions. use 'vncserver -kill :1' (or whattever # you need) to force extra vnc sessions to close01:23
ogravery likely pointing to eth101:24
TheNewGuyAgain thanks everyone.  This si really cool to have this kind of help. !  YOU have helped the NEWGUY  be a lettle less new.  (does that me me a "nooblet"?  )01:24
lalu_join #php01:24
ograhe just needs to change that to eth001:24
te_Dr_Willis: I think he said he had x11vnc installed. If so, he just needs to run x11vnc -many01:24
ProfessorXDr_Willis: Oh, I kind of get you now.01:24
ghostofaphoenixno a newbie01:24
phr0stbyteI am not sure what to change....01:24
Dr_Williste_:  he asked me what to use instead of x11vnc  - i told him vnc4server earlier.. :) if hes using x11vnc - hes on his own. :P01:24
te_Dr_Willis: And then vncviewer 192.168.x.x   to connect to it.01:25
mdgogra: I was trying to get my samsung yp-u3 to be seen with mtp-tools and console file manager - would I need to change something in udev rules?01:25
dsdeizdefault gtk theme anyone? :(01:25
Dr_WillisProfessorX:  you may want touse some uber light window manager such as icewm, instead of the heavy gnome-session/full gnome desktop01:25
PatrickaaaaI notirced that the file type is listesd as them file01:25
Patrickaaaais there any way i can change it to all and apply it01:25
Patrickaaaabecause i cant unzip it01:25
ographr0stbyte, at the end of each line you find the name of the device01:25
te_Dr_Willis: Well, if he already has x11vnc installed, he might as well learn to use it.01:25
linuxguy2009I have an odd question. In the gnome menu bar applet you have default pictures, videos, etc, bookmarks. I added a few more and it seems to have a limit and then it creates a "Bookmarks->" entry that kicks them all out on a side pane.Can i kill the side pane and have it display all of them like they were before all together on the main drop list?01:25
mdgogra: I was doing this in a console distro based on 8.0401:26
ographr0stbyte, if you have eth0 and eth1 there, just flip the names01:26
te_Dr_Willis: x11vnc works just fine.01:26
ographr0stbyte, if you only see eth1, change the 1 to 001:26
ographr0stbyte, on next rebot your interface should have the proper name again01:26
te_Dr_Willis: if you just run the x11vnc it will only work for first session and then exit.01:27
Dr_Williste_:  depends on your needs.  - what if im on a headless server. :)01:27

ProfessorXte_ & Dr_Willis: I edited my xstartup file so the last line is gnome-session. I type in command vncserver. No errors when I did. Still can't connect to it.01:28
phr0stbyteogra: I have to reboot? "sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart" didnt change it after the edit....01:28
Dr_Williste_:  yes.. x11vnc shaares the  currently running/physical desktop (from what the x11vnc docs say) this is simile rto how vnc works in windows.01:28
ghostofaphoenixPatrickaaaa, what disto 8.04, 9.04 etc01:28
Dr_Williste_:  other vnc servers let you do other 'tricks'01:28
ProfessorXgnome-session &01:28
Patrickaaaabacktrack 401:28
ographr0stbyte, no, you would need to restart udev, it assigns the device names ... rebooting is the safest way to get that done01:29
te_Dr_Willis: Oh yea, ok.  Thanks for the info. Press on...01:29
Dr_WillisProfessorX:  check the logs, and what display did it say was it running on?   HOSTNAME:#   (correct?)01:29

ProfessorXte_ , Dr_Willis: Ok, this is what I'm trying to do. I just order a VPS game host. It came with Ubuntu 9.04. I install GNOME and VNC on it. I'm just trying to load up the GNOME desktop when I connect to it with my VNC viewer. Currently, when I use x11vnc, it only shows a terminal window and a black screen like in this screenshot http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/5914/ubuntuu.png01:32

Patrickaaaaits a tar.gz01:32
Dr_WillisProfessorX:  you are connecting over the LAN or over the internet?    if x11vnc is just showing a terminal. and no window manager. in theory you could just run 'gnome-session' from the terminal to get a full gnome desktop going01:33
ghostofaphoenixPatrickaaaa, here is there forums have you checked there yet, sorry, got to go. be back soon ya'll.01:33
mdgghostofaphoenix: /me 0/01:33

scunizibenzzz: we don't really support anything outside of ubuntu itself here.. that being said .. if you've downloaded the .iso for ubuntu you have to tell the windows program somehow to use that to boot to.  You might consider 2 things. Get help fo that program in ##windows or use Virtualbox.  Virtualbox's currentl version from their site is 3.0 and will support the special screen effects in ubuntu. Their channel is #vbox.01:53

rch2armenian: well, last test, try system/administration/hardware drivers02:06
chatzillafine02:06
ARMENIANduane1: it might be adblock plus if you're using it, I had trouble on sites like imdb02:06
craigbass1976te_, I'm outta ink, and it's not my itinery anyway; I'm emailing it back to my neighbor02:06
rch2armenian: see if there are binary drivers available02:06
ARMENIANrch2: I've actually looked there for teh restricted drivers, but nothing ever came up02:07
ARMENIANhere ill look again02:07
scunizikromar: mine does to on intrepid.. I've been looking for a solution for a couple of months.. on mine it's the front and side vol. sliders that get muted02:07
te_craigbass1976: You can't just forward the email?02:07
ARMENIANrch2: nope, nothing there02:07
rch2rch2: please do... I am afraid your graphics performance is what it is.  you are running open-source radeon driver and it basically performs like it does02:07
kromarscunizi: so you havent found a solution?02:08
scunizikromar: nope02:08
rch2armenian: and it doesn't look like your system supports any other drivers02:08
duane1it has been working fine forever... i re-installed last night and it was still working fine... i didn't add any blockers, it just stopped02:08
ARMENIANrch2: hmm, so there's no other driver I can use?02:08
kromarscunizi: man that sucks im also searching a solution for some month now.. and thats not the only problem i have02:08
ARMENIANrch2: like on Windows it runs fine with the driver from ATI02:08
craigbass1976te_, she couldn't get it to print right; format was all screwy.  So I had her forward it to me, I hacked up the html enough to make it usable, then printed to pdf from firefox02:08
rch2armenian: say again, which card uhave?02:08
ARMENIANrch2: ATI radeon x800gt02:09
porter1Anyone else having problems where gnome-panel and firefox start screwing up, and firefox menus end up where gnome-panel menus are supposed to be, and vice versa?02:09
duane1i get a play button icon for all videos on all sites, even banners but most work02:09
te_craigbass1976: So just send the resulting pdf file to her as an attached file..02:09
scunizikromar: what else?02:09
rch2armenian: I think you are already running the "latest and greatest". and your 3d performance is hardware-accelerated within the driver capabilities02:09
te_craigbass1976: Have you lost the file?   You do not know where it is?02:10
rch2armenian: there is another driver, called radeonhd.  it works not as well for me, but it works better for some02:10
porter1Firefox didn't do it for a while, but now it's happening again, and it makes Ubuntu totally annoying to even bother using.02:10
jamiewanMidsummerDawn: yes that limewire prog works fine from that webpage02:10
kromarscunizi: its like some settings dont get saved when rebooting like the music player which i always need to open manually....02:10
AdolaOk, I had a driver I had to compile, for ethernet, I changed Kernel versions from 2.6.28, to 2.6.30...The driver doesn't work anymore.02:10
rskiAdola: you need to recompile it02:10
ARMENIANrch2: well see the reason is a game as simple as tremulous runs slow when i WIndows I could play cs:source great02:10
te_craigbass1976: Do you know the file name? If so, what is the file name?02:10
rch2armenian: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=radeon_vs_radeonhd&num=102:10
rch2armenian: the drivers are very very different on windows and linux02:11
scunizikromar: little niggley things.. frustrating .. sorry I don't have the solution for that one either.02:11
craigbass1976te_, dude, no.  I just needed to make a pdf to email to her.  I didn't know if cups=pdf wasn't working, or if I just didn't know where the files went.  I did not know they went into ~/PDF, as I've never printed with cups-pdf.  I am all set now, as far as I know.  Waiting to hear how it printed02:11
AdolarskiI did...And I got errors like "expected expression before ';' token  And warning 'return' with a value, etc.02:11
porter1ARMENIAN, if you don't have the non-generic drivers installed, things are going to run slow as hel02:11
ARMENIANrch2: yeah i know :) it's odd cause in like previous version of ubuntu that I've tried liek i beleive 8.10 I would get a popup for restricted drivers but not in 9.0402:12
te_craigbass1976: Ok, sorry.02:12
rch2armenian: acknoledge the problem.  they changed stuff in jaunty.  ATI restricted driver no longer runs02:12
ARMENIANporter1: hmm, like compiz runs pretty good, but with games that should run with no problem, they run slowish02:12
rch2porter1: he is running a non-generic ATI driver with hardware acceleration enabled. see http://pastebin.com/m460e240402:12

=== Kangarooo is now known as Kangarooo|Zzz
craigbass1976te_, no problem.  Thanks though.  Kind of a dumb problem really, I'd just never done it before02:12
ARMENIANhmm, that sucks02:13
te_craigbass1976: Well, you could just open it with your pdf viewer and see how they look.  If it looks ok, it will print ok because pdf is an image format.02:13
porter1rch2, oh. Well, ATI is a horrible company to expect any sort of support for communities02:13
rch2armenian: ATI still hasn't released a binary driver which supports jaunty kernel02:13
mdgfound what I needed for udev rules, but finding info myself is....02:13
JimmioBy installing build-essential on 9.04 x64, it's a 64 bit compiler, right?02:13
ARMENIANso, in the future is there going to better performing driver for ubuntu or am i just going to need to get a nvidia in future?02:13
duane1can anyone out there do me a favor and jump on hulu and see if they can play a video... that way i can know if it's there server.... everyone i have called are away from their pc02:13
kromarwhy do i get this when i try sudo alsactl store 0        E: core-util.c: Home directory /home/kromar not ours.02:14
rch2armenian: i've heard from many people including ubuntu gods recommending nvidia or intel02:14
ARMENIANduane1: here, ill do it02:14
duane1thanks02:14
mase_workARMENIAN: erm... well you need to ask ATI really as they are the only ones that know :)02:14
porter1ARMENIAN, unfortunately this is what happens when graphics cards aren't standardized more.02:14
scuniziARMENIAN: ubuntu is waiting for ati to make a driver that is better.. when it's available we'll have it.. in the mean time nvidia02:14
ARMENIANduane1: plays for me fine02:15

mdganyone know of a good udev rules tutorial for MTP?02:15
daedraporter1: I thought I'd got locked out of IRC02:15
ARMENIANdamnit, I always knew this ATI was an overpriced piece of garbage, can't believe AMD bought it out02:15
scunizimdg: use ubuntuforums to search for mtp or your player.. you should get numerous references on how to get it working.02:16
daedraporter1: oop, I actually have02:16
daedraporter1: it's just I don't have to register to talk on ubuntu02:16
rch2armenian: try radeonhd driver, you can't really lose much02:16
duane1i'll be back... going to try some more....... whatevers02:16
ariqsATI is a far better price for performance02:16
rch2see the link I posted about radeon vs radeonhd drivers02:16
daedraurgh02:16
ariqslinux just has shitty ATI drivers02:16
mdgscunizi: thank you.  Yes I did find the rules, but wanted to know how the info was obtained - help file is above my capacity at the moment02:16
scunizidaedra: nope you don't .. however you can't pm if you don't register.02:16
porter1ariqs, the price you pay is what you get for support in drivers :)02:17
ARMENIANrch2: I'm kind of new to all this so I would install it with  xf86-video-ati? but then how would I get it to use that driver02:17
daedrascunizi: I know. I'm a registered user, just changed my password02:17
lucianogphey guys, with FF3.5, a window alert produces a sound (the same drums you hear when you log into the system)... is that an expected behavior?02:17
daedrascunizi: and freenode is not accepting the old on OR the changed one02:17
te_ariqs: The hardware manufacturers should supply the driver software.02:17
te_ariqs: Do you not understand that?02:17
rch2armenian: not quite.  you need to install xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd02:17
daedranothing I can do really...02:17
linuxguy2009Does anyone have a workaround for the Gnome - Places bookmarks to hold more than 5?02:17
scunizidaedra: you could ask on #freenode.. they might be able to do something02:17
SecutorUsing a dual-boot Windows and Ubuntu, made the mistake of booting Windows and no longer get grub to choose Ubuntu. Can you point me toward help? Thanks.02:18
ariqste_, perhaps ATI doesn't care about linux?02:18
te_ariqs: Exactly!02:18
scunizilinuxguy2009: you could add a "drawer" to a deskbar and put them there.02:18
rch2armenian: then you need to read up docs for changing your xorg.conf ... 'cause it may not work.  this is a new driver02:18
rch2armenian: also, run glxgear and see what your rate is.  this a standard benchmark for speed02:18
mdgThanks for all the great help tonight!  :) Ubuntu rocks!02:18
ARMENIANrch2: yeah, this might actually even fix the issue I have where I start the computer and it starts in low res randomly sometimes02:19
TwoToneSpiritlucianogp: I noticed that too.02:19
linuxguy2009scunizi: Yeah thats true. But I wonder if there a way with gconf editor to do it.02:19
scunizilinuxguy2009: that I wouldn't know.02:19
ARMENIANrch2: glxgear? is it in the repos?02:19
MidsummerDawnjamiewan: Does it work?02:19
lucianogpTwoToneSpirit: good to know I'm not the only one. Now it'd be great to know if that is how it should work :S02:19
rch2armenian: glxgears.  it's a command in linux.  you probably have it already02:19
lucianogp(and how to deactivate it, because it really bothers me :P)02:20
blah123123when i reboot my box, my raid5 array never comes back up, i always have to messe around with mdadm to get it online. Is there a special song and dance I have to do besides adding the config to the mdadm.conf?02:20
=== cabrey_ is now known as cabrey
ARMENIANrch2: ohh ok gears :P i did it with gear02:20
TwoToneSpiritlucianogp: I don't know if it has been doing it since I upgraded to 3.5final - which version are you using?02:20
rch2armenian: sorry, typo.  what kind of rate are you getting?02:20
ARMENIANrch2: hmm 16720 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3343.920 FPS02:20
craigbass1976te_, hehe, now it won't print becuase the printer itself is screwed up.  She printed something a few minutes ago and everything went berzerk.  I ssh-ed in and killed whatever was spitting out so much paper, but I should have restarted cups probably...02:20
craigbass1976sheesh02:20
rch2armenian: scratch WHATEVER we told you previously :) your problem isn't driver02:21
lucianogpTwoToneSpirit: the official one from the repos, b402:21
porter1lol02:21
rch2armenian: are you running compiz?02:21
fission6how do i see all available wireless networks available to me in ubuntu02:21
porter1Evidently the drivers are ok :P02:21
ARMENIANrch2: yes, but i kill it before gameplay most times02:21
cabreyARMENIAN, what's your problem/02:21
te_craigbass1976: Tell her to unplug the printer for acouple min. turn off the computer, plug printer back in, restart computer.02:21
porter1fission, click on the wireless tray icon in the top right02:22
rch2armenian: if you kill it, are you sure it dies?  gnome might just restart it02:22
te_craigbass1976: She has MS Windows?02:22
cabreyARMENIAN, you can enable the UXA accelmethod if you want...02:22
craigbass1976te_ sounds like a windows solution.  She's on ubuntu too02:22
ARMENIANcabrey: games that should run fast run slow sometimes02:22
fission6porter1: with the signal bars02:22
porter1fission6, yep02:22
fission6there are all empty "blank"02:22
rch2armenian: what kind of game? can you be specific?02:22
craigbass1976te_, I converted her a couple years ago02:22
fission6i just installed ubuntu, trying to set up wireless02:22
ARMENIANrch2: actually I change it using the fusion-icon :)02:22
ewsubachif you have 2 gpus, is it possible to switch between the two on the fly?02:22
craigbass1976fission6, good luck.  lspci to figure out what kind of card you have02:22
ARMENIANcabrey: how do I turn that on?02:23
rch2armenian: would be nice to check if metacity is actually running then02:23
te_craigbass1976: Does she have correct printer selected?02:23
porter1fission, then either your wireless driver is bad, or there are no visible wireless networks nearby02:23
ARMENIANrch2: tremuluos for instance02:23
te_craigbass1976: Does she have correct driver selected for printer?02:23
fission6porter1: even if i just set up the install? you dont think there is a config or something i need to do02:23
craigbass1976te_, she does.  It' probably something stupid.  My wife is over there now; when she gets home I'll run over and have a look.  It printed fine before now, just a glitch I think.  Is there a way to print this pdf from the command line?02:24
cabreyARMENIAN, it may break your X, so back up your xorg.conf file: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/UxaTesting02:24
te_craigbass1976: She can clear print jobs and try again.  But like I said, unplug the printer for a minute or so.02:24
cabreyrch2, if compiz is running, metacity isn't02:24
porter1fission6, depending on the card you have there might be lots of configuring your going to have to do :)02:24
rch2cabrey: he says he kills compiz02:24
te_craigbass1976: Yes.  lpr file.pdf02:24
dhendrixhow does one go about turning a unified diff into a debian-ized kernel patch?02:24
rch2armenian: UXA is for 2D graphics. your game is 3D using opengl.02:24
cabreyrch2, well UXA fixes the compiz/opengl issue02:24
rch2cabrey: never heard of that, then perhaps worth trying02:25
te_craigbass1976: lprm  will  clear jobs  lpq will show jobs.02:25
ARMENIANrch2: ohh ok then i guess i dont need it02:25
Ollonkanyone here familiar with the dell latitude c400?02:25
OllonkIt's pure evil....02:26
fission6porter1: atheros communications, AR242X02:26
ARMENIANactually let me try something one sec02:26
cabreyrch2, before if you had compiz enabled and ran glxgears, then tried to move the glxgears windows, bad things would happen.02:26
te_craigbass1976: (That is, if the printer in question is set as default printer.)02:26
ariqste_, I just find it fairly ironic that anyone would call ATI overpriced when it has much better price for performance overall. Sure, it has terrible linux drivers, but no one said anyone was stuck to linux02:26
cabreyrch2, UXA fixes that opengl / compiz issue so that you dont have to kill compiz before using opengl apps02:26
te_craigbass1976: It is a good idea to set as default printer even if it is the only one.02:26
craigbass1976te_, lprm not clearing jobs.  hmmmm02:26
craigbass1976te_, it is the default.  Has been for a year anyway02:26
te_ariqs: Problem is that ati has never provided good reliable driver software and that is a part of the problem.02:27
porter1fission6, go to System, administration, and then harware drivers. THe dirver might be in there02:27
rch2cabrey: sounds like a good suggestion, I don't have any others02:27
porter1fission6, you will need to connect to ethernet first though.02:27
ariqslinux isn't a very good gaming OS either anyway02:27
te_ariqs: Sometimes,... you get what you pay for.02:27
fission6why woudlnt it install automatically02:27
ariqsor a very good 3d modeling OS02:27
rch2armenian: I just checked, your  card is too old to run radeonhd driver.  you are stuck with radeon driver (the only one for your R420 hardware)02:27
cabreyrch2, the ubuntu wiki says it is unstable for intel chips, not sure about other hardware tho =V02:27
rch2armenian: try to follow cabrey advice,I haven't used it myself so I can't tell02:28
ARMENIANrch2: ohh :( its okay let me see im gonna play with it see what happens02:28
te_ariqs: nvidia provides better support, so.... there you go.02:28
porter1fission6, because it might be proprietary software, which Ubuntu is not allowed to distribute02:28
ARMENIANyeah I will try it02:28
craigbass1976te_, wel, between me restarting cups and clearing out garbage jobs, it printed.  I guess they were trying to print while I was runn lprm.02:28
rch2cabrey, armenian: google found a good bug report on this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-ati/+bug/9699102:28
porter1fission6, only drivers that the manufacturers make open source are included in base ubuntu.02:28
te_craigbass1976: very good02:28
JimmioWho just said Ubuntu is bad for gaming and 3D modelling?! I am making a game engine as we speak in Ubuntu, and Blender, Wings3D, k-3D, etc. all work very well.02:29
craigbass1976te_, yeah, now I can stay home.  Woot!02:29
porter1Jimmio, yes there are some great 3D programs and games, but mainstream gamecompanies rarly publish on Linux.02:29
te_Jimmio: ariqs was the one02:29
ariqste_ sure, ATI could make better drivers, but I still get far more power for the dollar with ATI02:30
OllonkApparently I have no framebuffers.... and I'm running jaunty02:30
Ollonk>_<02:30
porter1And games on Linux unfortunately are either poor art quality or have very little direction other than needing to clone a windows game02:30
te_ariqs: But if the driver software is not there, what do you have?02:31
ariqsJimmio, Blender is not a good modeling program02:31
porter1ariqs, you are wrong.02:31
porter1:)02:31
ariqste_ a need to goto windows02:31
te_ariqs: ATI could make better drivers and if they did, it would be a different story.02:31
te_ariqs: Yes, maybe you need to use MS.02:32
ariqsporter1, I'm not much of a 3d artist, but I have friend that are, and they all claim blender is poor quality.02:32
ariqsfriend - friends02:32
porter1ariqs, if you haven't used it, you don't know ;)02:32
ariqsand I know from first hand that ubuntu makes a poor gaming OS :) I'm ok with that. It has its own strengths02:33
Jimmioariqs: It is a very good modeling program. Excellent. I use it professionally and it works perfect.02:33
porter1Most artists don't like it because they don't understand the workflow (because they are coming from windows), but in truth it is probably the most awesome 3d modeling program created.02:33
ariqsporter1, I've used it02:33
ariqsporter1: as well as maya, lightwave and 3dsmax02:34
ariqsthey're much better02:34
Jimmioariqs: It's also a great gaming OS. Many times faster than Windows. Problem is, the stupid corporate execs don't see a point in supporting it.02:34
ariqsbut I haven't used it enough to know all the subtleties, and my 3d artist friends have. So I divert to their judgement02:34
JimmioThey're worse actually ariqs. I've used them all, and Blender is the one I like the most. Can you make a game inside any of them?02:34
porter1ariqs, yeah everyone has their own opinions about the best workflow.02:34
Flare183!ot02:34
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!02:34

KevanBarleyToday I upgraded Ubuntu, as usual, but the process upgraded over a hundred packages (usually it's about ten).  Now Ubuntu doesn't seem to acknowledge my monitor's resolution capabilities.  It came up as 720x400 (unusable) and the highest I could go was 1024x768.  I don't guess that you can troubleshoot it in a chat room, but I'm wondering if this is a known issue?03:45

fryguyjulios: to install a video card, find the screw to remove the side panel from your computer, identify the correct slot (agp, pci, or pci-express) and place the card in, making sure to apply firm pressure, then screw into place.  If you already have a video card, unscrew and replace with the new card using the same procedure03:50

DraconicusHi there. My friend's Jaunty system uses a separate partition for /home. Despite being in fstab, it recently decided to stop mounting automatically.

Dulakpeterkls: it's a 6 cell battery, not the 3 cell one on the slightly cheaper model04:39
dsdeizDr_Willis: it stays to "Starting MTA" for how many minutes then continues04:39
dsdeizDr_Willis: how may i disable it?04:39
alazyworkaholicdoes anyone here have any idea what to do when fsck starts asking questions like "Clear inode?"04:39
panfisti am having a problem with sound...OSS works but ALSA does not...i hear quiet static only when ALSA is enabled. Even though I have OSS set as my default device, I think firefox is using ALSA because any sound out of firefox sounds like the quiet static i get when testing ALSA playback04:40

Cosmo1 I am having a problem my keyboard layout keeps changing from dvorak back to qwerty even though I have removed the qwerty layout and it seems at random times it goes back to qwerty and I have to run setxkbmap dvorak in a launcher. How do I fix this so that it stays dvorak? I am noticing a slight pause in my system when it happens.04:40
Draconicusscunizi: Yeah. Like that 'cept I have a real /dev path instead of a UUID.04:40
Dr_Willisdsdeiz:  check the upstart docs, on how to enable/disable services.. i forget the 'proper' way to do it now a days.04:40
Dr_Willis!upstart | dsdeiz04:40
ubottudsdeiz: Upstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/04:40
panfistdraconicus yes, i just tried rebooting. how do i do that? sudo apt-get reinstall?04:41
scuniziDraconicus: right.. but is the remaining portion similar?04:41

tenniselbowmy gnome desktop is very slow...  all apps take a while to load and typing is a bit delayed.... Ive just installed jaunty on my compaq presario laptop.... could it be my nvidia graphics?04:41
scunizitenniselbow: yes04:41

Draconicuspanfist: By the way, you should run alsamixer and make sure nothing's muted, or that your recording channels ARE.04:42
hheverytime starting, a window appear ask me to recover files04:42
panfistwill try that, thanks04:42
Draconicushh: Then reinstall. It's probably broken.04:42
Draconicusscunizi: If you mean the options and whatnot, yeah.04:42
hhyes, I reinstall it many times follow the guide on Internet04:42
tenniselbowscunizi: any pointers where i should look to find how to fix it? Im not really sure what the problem is, i guessed it might be something to do with the graphics card. Do i need another driver?04:43
Draconicusscunizi: It's like this:     /dev/sda5    /home    ext3    relatime     0   204:43
Draconicusscunizi: There's nothing wrong with my fstab. Can we move on?04:43
KamokowOk, I just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my laptop computer (HP Pavilion dv2000). But whenever anything internet related loads, my little wireless light starts blinking Blue (working) Red (non-working), its not causing any problems, but it is a tad annoying. Is there any way I can fix this?04:43
scuniziDraconicus: looks good from here.. I'm stuck..04:43
DraconicusNext. :304:43
scunizitenniselbow: what kind of card nvidia ..what?04:44
Draconicusscunizi: Any specialists here? I know what I'm doing. I know fstab and mount and all that jazz. Gentoo/Debian veteran. :P04:44
wrinkliezso, does anyone play rrootage?  because i cant figure out which button starts the game lol XD04:45
tenniselbowscunizi: GeForce 8200M G with shared graphics memory04:45

panfistdraconicus couldn't i just try something like setting firefox to not use alsa? i'm pretty sure all my problems are alsa related...anything that i know for sure is using OSS works just fine04:45
scunizitenniselbow: did you look in system/admin/hardware drivers? is there anything there to activate?04:46
Draconicuspanfist: Most all audio in Firefox goes through flash. have you tried actual audio files?04:46
tenniselbowscunizi: i know zilch about graphics cards.... ill have a look there now. In the past its always worked for me "out of the box"04:46
Draconicusscunizi: Suggested poking?04:46
panfistdraconicus audio files? what do you mean? i can play audio files in other applications04:47
dsdeizhow do you fix a broken install again?04:48
Draconicuspanfist: Then it's not ALSA. It's your flash. Are you using Adobe Flash or swfdec?04:48
Draconicusdsdeiz: Reinstall? Can you boot up to a command line?04:48
Kamokowdsdeiz: have you done anything? Like would you reject if I said just to reinstall?04:48

ubottuVNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX04:49
dsdeizDraconicus: what about in the terminal?04:49
tenniselbowscunizi: You are right on the money. I went to system/admin/hardware drivers. No drivers were activated.... ive activated one now. Its installing, hopefully it fixes the problem. Thank you for your help.04:49
panfisti will try another flash player...but it's definitely alsa. alsa = static. oss = sound. firefox = static ergo I tnk it's using alsa but i cant figure out how to change that or even check it04:49
duckwars__thank you so much~04:49
scunizitenniselbow: after installation you'll need to restart.04:49
duckwars__=)04:49
Draconicusdsdeiz: Why do you need to do it in the terminal?04:49
DraconicusThere's no real graceful way to do it in there...04:49
Kamokowsome people just prefer the terminal04:49
DraconicusTrue enough.04:49
tenniselbowscunizi: ok. Thank you04:50
vigoIs a nice ubottu04:50
scuniziDraconicus: sorry I was googling.. is this /home left from one of your previous linux installs?04:50
dsdeizi don't have x04:50
Draconicusdsdeiz: Ah. That's a silly way to run Ubuntu in particular, but alright. :P04:50
DraconicusI think aptitude has the same feature.04:50
dsdeizdo i just do "man aptitue" ?04:51
TwoToneSpiritWhich, if any, IRC channel focuses on apt-get and the repos? (ie where do the "librarians" hang out?)04:51
KamokowHmm... how do I setup a network bridge on Ubuntu? I have never made an attempt.04:51
halberdI have a USB device (a TomTom One) that shows up in File Browser as a USB Drive04:51
halberdwhere is that mounted on the /dev filesystem? how can I find out?04:52
halberder i mean not mounted04:52
dsdeizDraconicus: got it now, thank you ;)04:52
scuniziDraconicus: I'm not sure if this would make a difference but do you have more than one swap partition on your system?04:52
halberdwhere does the device exist on /dev?04:52
usserKamokow, theres a bunch of ways, bridge-utils would probably be the easiest04:52
dsdeizwhat's the difference between aptitude and apt-get anyway?04:52
Hilikuswhat audio/video player do you guys recommend. i tried rythmbox but it doesnt play videos04:52
Dr_Willishalberd:  you mount it where you want the 'device' name may be found with proberly the 'dmesg' command of by 'sudo fdisk -l' perhaps04:52

halberdDr_Willis, according to dmesg it attached as "usb 7-1"04:55
Dr_Willishalberd:  read the messages some more.. should be some sd## type info metnioned.. or just try 'sudo fdisk -l'04:55

halberdfdisk reports nothing of interest04:55

dsdeizit is usuall /dev/sdb1 or something04:55
halberdmy computer can't mount this, it can't recognize the filesystem04:55
Dr_Willishalberd:  if it works as a usb hard drive - it will have a normal /dev/sd## type name04:55
Dr_Willishalberd:  so what are you trying to do with it then?04:56
halberdI want to try to manually mount it to see what the problem is04:56
peterklswhat format does teh usb stick need to be to do the netbook install of ubuntu, fat32?04:56
Dr_Willishalberd:  you mean the PROBLEM is that  a windows machine cant mount the device?04:56
Dr_Willispeterkls:  fat32/fat16 normally04:56
halberdno the problem is that my Ubuntu machine can't mount it04:56
Dr_Willispeterkls:  but if you are using the UNR usb image file.. it dosent matter.04:57
halberdat least not automatically04:57
Dr_Willishalberd:  find the device name.. try mounting via hand.04:57
linuxguy2009Just a quicky here. Does anyone here have experience with managing Ubuntu updates manually? I have been using a live cd to use synaptic to generate download scripts to create my own repository CD with great results with using a multisession CD so i can add apps as i go and never have to download them more than once.Its great. My question is doing the same thing with the live session but going and creating a download script of all curren04:57
halberdyes Dr_Willis... that's what I'm in here asking about, how to find the device name so that I can mount it by hand...04:57
peterklsubuntu-9.04-netbook-remix-i386 is what im using and its a IMG file04:57
scunizi!offline | linuxguy200904:58
ubottulinuxguy2009: If you need to download Ubuntu packages using another machine or OS, check the desired packages in Synaptic and select File > Generate package download script. Alternatively, try http://apt.alturl.com/ - See also !APTonCD04:58
Dr_Willishalberd:  plug it in.. look at 'dmesg' output a few times.. it will take it 30+sec to show/get set up.. so run dmesg a few times.. OR... for the 3rd time  try 'sudo fdisk -l'04:58
linuxguy2009oy nevermind04:58
halberdoh I guess it is /dev/sdc104:58
halberdthat was throwing me off because I often have an external hard drive called that so I didn't recognize it...04:58
Dr_Willis:)04:58
linuxguy2009Ive been using virtualbox it works great. You didnt let me finish.04:59
scunizilinuxguy2009: by all means .. finish..04:59
KamokowOk, I have used linux before, just not... very much. However I am starting to use it as an everyday OS. Now... I want to ask how I would make a directory hidden? Would  I have to use like CHMOD or something? I still want it to be accessible, just hidden...05:00
=== iamcalledrob|awa is now known as iamcalledrob
halberdexcellent it mounted successfully :) still no idea why it wouldn't mount from the file browser... ty05:00
linuxguy2009When i do the same with updates Ive been using multisession CD in Nero Linux 3, but I get tons of wasted space cause of file overwrites.Im thinking theres no workaround, its just a limitation of Nero Linux app?05:00
Dr_WillisKamokow:  short answer.. you dont.05:00
scuniziKamokow: hidden files / directories begin with a .05:00
linuxguy2009Ill just burn disk at once for the updates if I have to no biggy,05:00
Dr_WillisKamokow:  or make it start with a . (but thats just a trick, not really hideing it in any special way)05:00
mobi-sheepKamokow: You could add a (dot) on your folder.05:00
* WIGGMPk is SOOOO HAPPPY05:01
Kamokowok, i just want it to not appear :P05:01
Dr_WillisKamokow:  use a .whatever for its name05:01
mobi-sheepKamokow: Why are you hiding something from yourself? :)05:01
mase_worklinuxguy2009: out of curiousity why would you use the Nero Linux app when there are much better burning applications available which are provided as part of the distro ?05:01
dsdeizlike .pr0n05:01
dsdeizlol05:01
scunizilinuxguy2009: just curious.. are you running ubuntu in the vm? and if so does the rest of the computer not have internet access?05:01
Dulakmobi-sheep: c'mon, hiding yer porn is as old as computers05:01
linuxguy2009Well ever since 8.10 I always had trouble with brasero and also k3b with verifies failing every time.05:01
mobi-sheepDulak: I don't need to hide them.  I'm man enough. :)05:02
linuxguy2009Has braser improved on that? or maybe it was just the 8.10 release that was really buggy for me.05:02
Dulakmobi-sheep: you aren't married huh?05:02
mase_worklinux05:02
linuxguy2009The main pc has internet05:02
WIGGMPkquick question.. I have 3 DVD drives.. 1 internal (SATA) 1 external (eSATA) and 1 external (USB).. I only see /media/cdrom0 and /media/cdrom1 shouldnt I have a /media/cdrom2 for the third drive?05:03
mobi-sheepDulak: No. Even if I am, I still won't hide it.  Well, I encrypt everything all times so I guess the subconscious told me that I don't need to worry about anything. :<05:03
linuxguy2009Im making my own repository cd and its great I only have to ever install anything just once and I have all its deps in folders with a homeade install script to install them from CD.05:03
Kamokowoh sorry, im hiding it cause im working on a project and i dont want people messing with the stuff...05:03
mase_worklinuxguy2009: can't say i've experienced that, however both brasario and k3b use the underlying cdrecord ( or forked version ) afaik so you may like to file a bug report and see if they can work out why its' failing. Are you sure thechecksums aren't actually different and nero is just ignoring this ?05:03
Dulakmobi-sheep: when you get married you'll understand, women take it real personal05:03
Dr_WillisKamokow:  set the owner to be only the person that should have rights to mess with it?05:03
laymansnerdwhat do ctrl shift and alt do respectively when dragging and dropping?05:03
Dulakmobi-sheep: it's ok, enjoy that freedom while you got it05:03
Dr_Willislaymansnerd:  the gnome help docs tell ya.. alt = Move.. i forget the others...05:03
Kamokowoh right lol, w/e hiding is good enough for me05:04

JamesHoldsworthHi!05:04
* Dulak envies mobi-sheep.05:04
linuxguy2009mase_work: Umm no it has an option to verify and it works. Maybe I will give brasero a second chance. Maybe it works better now than before.05:04
doskyeif i wanted to back up my system as is, would i just make a copy of my /home folder?05:04
Dr_Willislaymansnerd:  i perfer how kde asks what to do.. :()05:04
JamesHoldsworthCan anyone here help me with a wirelessissue?05:04
Dr_Willisdoskye:  that would backup the users settings/files.. thats it.05:04
linuxguy2009Does brasero have a verify and also support multisession?05:04
JamesHoldsworthI feel kind of stuped honestly05:04
laymansnerdDr_Willis: i love me my gnome :-)05:04
CarlFK1doskye: "system" kinda implies /etc and 'stuff'05:04
Dr_Willislaymansnerd:  the file manager is useable.. but lacking in many ways05:05
KamokowJamesHoldsworth: depends, define the problem more.05:05
mase_worklinuxguy2009: so you have verified it manually , ie not using brasereo or nero ?05:05
RedLanceJamesHoldsworth: I'll try05:05
JamesHoldsworthI have a Dell Vostro 150005:05
linuxguy2009Yes I verify with nero.05:05
JamesHoldsworthi have the latest Ubuntu, i've had a few versions of it05:05
mase_worklinuxguy2009: then no you haven't done it manually05:05
laymansnerdtrue...but i like the level of stuff that can be customized in gnome05:05
kubuntuuseris it normal to have two "monitor" and two "screen" sectyions in xorg.conf?05:05
CarlFK1whats the /proc thing I mess with to disable cpu freq scaling?05:05
JamesHoldsworthbut i always had a wired connection05:05
doskyehow could i back up my system as is?05:05
linuxguy2009Why would i need to verify a CD manually when Nero does it for me after every burn?05:05
Kamokowand wireless doesnt work?05:05
JamesHoldsworthnow,I have access to wired connections05:05
Dr_Willislaymansnerd:  the level of stuff that can be customized is rather minimal/bare compared to other window manager/desktops ::)05:05
flightcrankdo u use "fdisk" to see all hard drives connected to a system ?05:06
JamesHoldsworthbut its very inconvenient05:06
KamokowIf wireless doesnt work you need to get drivers05:06
JamesHoldsworthwireless wont even show up05:06
te_doskye: Get a usb hd and use g4u05:06
Dr_Willisflightcrank:  i tend to use 'sudo fdisk -l' yes... for that task05:06
mase_worklinuxguy2009:  because either Nero or brasereo is lying if they are using the same burner05:06
JamesHoldsworthwhen I look at the "Hardware Drivers" thing05:06
KamokowYea, you are going to need to look for the drivers, and look for a linux version for your model05:06
JamesHoldsworthit says I have the "Broadcom" one or whatever05:06
linuxguy2009When i used to use brasero and k3b I always had to manually verify.always never failed.05:06
JamesHoldsworthit says its enabled05:06
JamesHoldsworthbut not in use05:06
JamesHoldsworththe Network Connections has a wireless setting05:06
laymansnerdwell compiz helps me a little bit ;-) but i'm still somewhat of a noob....so i'm sure once i get a little better i can move on to bigger and better things05:06
JamesHoldsworthand i haveall of the info there05:06
JamesHoldsworthbut there's no "connection" thing05:07
linuxguy2009Had something to do with the end of the disk notg being kept track of or something i was told back in 8.10 release.05:07

vasslerOKAY, on gnome-look.org: splash screen, how do you install them?05:25
linuxguy2009 losher: I see the md5 file it put on my disk it has all the md5 sums of every file on the disk. I tried telling it to use it and it wont.05:25
Dr_Willisvassler:  a GNOME splash screen.. i think one opens the appearance controlpanel tool and just drag/drop over to it.05:25
linuxguy2009 losher: How do you verify a disk-at-once normal burn then?05:25
wdyrtOceanic, i find a package to enable that a bit over the top, isnt it just 1 line in the X config that does that?05:25
hiepmy pidgin isn't still normal05:26
noisymouseCosmo1: Ok, what I would do would be make a copy of /etc/default/console-setup and then delete the contents of the file05:26
geirhafotoflo: adduser USER GROUP05:26
noisymouseCosmo1: and then run sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup again05:26
fotoflogeirha: that wasnt my question05:26
hiepmy pidgin can't connect to yahoo05:26
losherlinuxguy2009: normally, I would just md5sum the whole disk e.g. md5sum -b - < /dev/sr005:26
hiep:((05:26
oldude67hiep your pidgen isnt going to either.05:26
wdyrthiep, ive been having similar problems too, i think yahoo have changed things around again05:26
scuniziearthmeLon: that's not the issue.. pidgin is broken for yahoo right now. you have to wait for an update05:27
RedLancehiep: You need to update it to 2.5.705:27
Dr_Willishiep:  thate because yahoo likes to break the 3rd party clients.. try  the yahoo site. or the meebo.com client site untill the people 'fix' the yahoo clients for linux.05:27
geirhafotoflo: Well, ok. The groups should be listed with , (comma) between, not space05:27

Oceanicwdyrt, am not sure, maybe having a package is more beginner friendly? since you can enable and disable it Ctrl+Alt+Backspace with it05:28
earthmeLonI am using mkvmerge and the resulting mkv audio stutters.  The ac3 file has no stutters.  Here is my mkvmerge command and VLC's errors, if anybody is interested: http://pastebin.com/m6d03c283  If anybody knows of a better place to ask this question, that would be appreciated05:29
linuxguy2009losher: Ok I know how to do that with the md5 sommand. Now what is there to compare that to, to actually make sure the md5sum is correct?05:29
linuxguy2009hehe05:29
wdyrtOceanic, but why a package, it could be done with a simple script, or there could be an option in a GUI somewhere, i really think a package is just gonna be unnecessary and just make things, well, silly05:29
losherlinuxguy2009: googling for 'ubuntu multi session cd' isn't very promising05:29
linuxguy2009Think Ill stick with my nero it just works.05:30

vik#engagemedia05:31
linuxguy2009losher: Well lets just talk as if i did a regular old burn. What would i compare the outputed md5sum to in order to make sure its correct?05:31
Oceanicwdyrt, I guess its easier to install, I'm not a developer or anything, i'm just your average user =)05:32
losherlinuxguy2009: md5sum works best when you're burning an iso. You would compare the iso md5sum with that on the disk. An alternative to this would be to mount the disk, and compare files using diff -r e.g. mount /dev/sr0; diff -r /media/cdrom <directory containing files>05:33
wdyrtOceanic, ok :-) well i am a bit above your average user, its not a big deal that its in a package, its just not needed05:33

wdyrtkuitang, this may be a silly question, but have you tried restarting apache05:34
kuitangyes05:35
linuxguy2009losher: Hmm strange. i would hope that they sometime in the future they would make a simpler way to verify. I know the command line enough to do it, but I want to rule out human error and just know that all of my hours and hours of package collecting doesnt get ruined by an unreliable app. Thats what happened before I had no definite way to check.Kinds bites.05:35

linuxguy2009Hi guys I was just wondering if there is an app in the repos that can remove all packages that are left behind after removing an installed app on my system? I have tried deborphan and its gtk counterpart gtkorphan and they both list packages that I need and not just ones left behind. I have Ubuntu Tweak installed and it has a remover that works really well but I would rather have a tool meant just for doing this.Anyone know of one that 07:17

lstarnesdoskye: what are you trying to use it for?08:01
doskyecopying my hdd08:02
SeveasStdht, /dev/ttyUSB0 is not a usb disk. It's a USB modem08:02
ActionParsnipdoskye: it works by copying the specified block size of data from one device to another for so many counts or until one device runs out of data08:02
Seveasduckwars__, change its label08:02
halberddd probably wouldn't work that well if you try to copy your hdd while the drive is in use08:02

Dr_Willisdoskye:  its about as basic of a tool as you can get. :) and you dont want to 'dd' copy a drive while its in use. :)08:03
halberdit could end up with an image that can't be recovered from08:03

rdzmadalin, ubuntu installation won't overwrite your windows partition.. however, you need to get some free (unpartitioned) disk space for the ubuntu installation09:07
rdzmadalin, from what i remember, ubuntu cd lets you resized the ntfs (windows) partition09:08

lwellsI just created a partition for data, but when I try to open it, it tells me I do not have any permissions, how can i fix that?09:39
linuxpapul i would try disabling the update manager if that's what u mean?09:39
rdzlwells, what format has the new partition?09:39
g-hennuxhi!09:39
lwellsext409:39
papullinux, is there any way to download the packages that i need as deb?09:40
bullgard4Terralthra: The computer is Medion MD97600. the driver is the moddule ipw2200, an ubiquituous driver.09:40
GuidMorrowIt says "1.5 MB Media"09:40
lwellsSorry , also needed to say I mounted that partition already09:40
Terralthrathe rfkill is usually something on your computer, not the specific card09:40
jamieleshawg-hennux: hello09:40
g-hennuxin /sys/devices/pci0000:00, I do have several subfolders, that, in total, eat up more than a gig of storage. any idea what that is?09:40
rdzlwells, you probably mounted it as root? maybe that is why09:40
Terralthratried looking for model name on the forums to see if someone else has had this problem?09:40
jamieleshawno clue09:40
lwellsyes actually I did, guess that was a mistake rdz09:41
rdzlwells, if you have a folder that should be accessed by a user, change owenership of the folder09:41
linuxim using ubuntu and i just download deb seems to auto install09:41
rdzlwells, no it's not, but of course, then your user cannot access it, but only root09:41
lwellshow do i give the user permission then09:41
lwellsdo a chmod?09:42
masterkHi. I am trying to set my resolution above 1360x768 but that is the highest the NVIDIA X Server Settings is showing, how can I make it list higher resolutions?09:42
bullgard4Terralthra: Please do not use generalitties if I have a specific question. This computer does not have a hardware rf kill switch.09:42
rdzlwells, when you let ubuntu mount it automatically , then your user should have access to the mounted filesystem09:42
GuidMorrowrdz: the mount point is /media/floppy009:42
Terralthrabullgard4: Please do not expect me to know the specifics of a computer I have never even seen09:42
loloftheringsmasterk, it's possible that your graphics card doesn't support any higher resolutions.09:42
masterkIt does support it in windows just fine.09:42
rdzlwells, you could do: 'chown -R user:user foldername' in orde to change ownership of a specific folder09:42
bullgard4Terralthra: Thank you.09:42
filsmauditWhen does Karmix Koala goes out?09:43
lwellsrdz, i mounted it with the "mount -t" command09:43
rdzGuidMorrow, yo, i would like to know not the mountpoint, but the device name09:43
loloftherings!karmic09:43
ubottuKarmic Koala is the codename for Ubuntu 9.10, due October 2009 - Karmic WILL break - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+109:43
rdzlwells, on ubuntu, when you attach a new drive, it is mounted automatically with the permission of the current user09:43
GuidMorrowIt doesn't have specific information, it just says "PC floppy drive"09:43
lwellsthanks rdz, got it to work09:44
masterkI tried setting the Option "metamodes" line to the resolution I wanted, but it appears that is ignored in the xorg.conf09:44
fg56xfdI have some updates that say they are "blocked" why are these blocked, and how can I unblock them?09:44
joebodomasterk u using nvidia ?09:45
masterkYes.09:45
joebodomasterk what would i get for giving you the solution :)09:45
rdzGuidMorrow, do 'df -h', then give me the line containing /media/floppy009:46

aeonorisI was making an audio project on Audacity, but when I tried to save it, Audacity froze up.  Is there any way I can retrieve the stuff I was working on?09:48

DJoneslinux: Do you mean you've manually updated a package and you don't want the package manager to auto-update that package in future?09:51

rdzubuntunewbie, what player are you using'09:52
om26erhello09:52
djiezesubuntunewbie: maybe install compiz-fusion-icon & whenever you play video, disable the visual effects?09:52

djiezesubuntunewbie: i'm talking about something else, go to your package manager (synaptic), look for compiz-fusion-icon & install that application. It'll let you switch easily from the system tray between effects & no-effects.09:54

user_How do I make xmodmap remap button 9 on my mouse to button 8?09:58
djiezesubuntunewbie: well, whenever you run that applciation, you'll have an icon in your system tray, if you right click that, you can change window manager : compiz is the 3d one, metacity the non-3d normal one.09:58
om26erte_ ok then?09:58
te_om26er: redo the fstab entry09:58
djiezesubuntunewbie: so whenever you want to watch a video, you can switch to metacity09:58

om26erte_:  tell me the09:58
djiezesubuntunewbie: If you want to run that application whenever you computer boots, you'll have to add it to your startup programs.09:59
indusubuntunewbie: check in menu and run it09:59
djiezesubuntunewbie: you have to run the application first (Applications > System Tools > F09:59
djiezesubuntunewbie: you have to run the application first (Applications > System Tools > Compiz Fusion Icon)09:59
indusubuntunewbie: djiezes:we are talking about the compiz fusion icon right?09:59
te_om26er: change the mount point and then mount it and see if it works.09:59
user_How do I make xmodmap remap button 9 on my mouse to button 8?09:59
djiezesindus: yes09:59
te_om26er: then reboot09:59

spxzaI am pushing out ubuntu on a large number of machines. I guess it would be better to use an LTS (most recently 8.04). However, I'm putting new hardware into those machines, and the current linux kernel on 8.04 is 2.6.28, which may not support the drivers.10:00
te_om26er: see if  you  can mount it manually with mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda110:00
spxzaso, my option only option would be to use 9.04?10:00
indusspxza: what kinda hardware10:00
joerch_.ircd.de10:00
te_om26er: Or mount -a10:01
spxzaindus: 802.11n cards10:01
djiezesubuntunewbie: if you want it every time your pc starts, then go to System > Preferences > StartUp Applications & Add it there : Add > and in 'command' you type "fusion-icon -n" (without the quotes).10:01
te_om26er: What is it that you are mounting?10:01
djiezesubuntunewbie: if you do that, the app will run always10:01
indusspxza: hmm a network component,then yes 9.04 is a safer bet10:01
ubuntunewbie<djiezes> thanks a lot for it10:02
djiezesubuntunewbie: no problem, i use it all the time, because it doesn't play well with full-screen video & some games. just swtich to metacity whenever you run into these kind of problems.10:02
