apersonsinbox, thanks00:00
OttifantSirWIGGMPk: Rather, they didn't enable the option because NTFS is considered an inferior filesystem to ext3/4, Reiser, JFS and XFS00:00
SteveHillpnglb: Unless you could entice the admin to install a cvs-ish clone on his/her machine, I don't know how to keep the server in sync with your system (unless you just ftp back to it.)  Perhaps someone else has a better clue.00:02

pnglbSteveHill: I don't know rsync, but if it allows me to open an ftp connection, compare, then send new/updated files, that should be enough.00:03
=== Guest40561 is now known as th0r
OttifantSirWIGGMPk: Probably, this is due to Gparted being a front-end for parted, while fdisk is just fdisk. Different features and command-sets and such00:04

th0rCyber_Akuma: I never mentioned security updates...those are a separate issue from upgrading a release00:58
mattgyverthewanderer_ by doing so will that always cause it to run as root, or must you explicitly run it as sudo for that to happen?00:58

OttifantSirCyber_Akuma: fstab (as I understand it) means FileSystemTable. A kind of billboard on how the filesystems connect to eachother and the OS. It's a file, more like a script actually, not an application.01:11

skibilianoTell me how to explain it in more detail: here's a small recap, I try to update my ubuntu, from 8.04 to 8.10, using the desktop way of ubuntu downloading the update itself.

marks256mattgyver, ok i'll look into that and see if there are any config files that may have been altered01:46
jribOttifantSir: umm, man man01:46
Saikdoes anyone know id the zd1211b is a RAlink-bsed chip?01:47
* jrib returns to his bottle now01:47
Cyber_AkumaSo, why should I use mkswap over GParted for making swap partitions?01:47
Saikjrib, I didn't know you had a bottle?01:47
danbhfiveRicochet: well, how does your xorg.conf look?01:47
mattgyvermarks256, looks like they are added to samba @ /var/lib/samba/usershares01:47
Cyber_AkumaOr do yo mean just to label them01:48
Ricochetdanbhfive: well I just edited it and reverted it back.. so right now its the standard01:48
jribSaik: I granted OttifantSir's wish01:48
thewanderer_Cyber_Akuma: mkswap is what GParted uses 'under the hood'01:48
Ricochetdanbhfive: The default that is01:48
OttifantSirjrib: Thanks! Never even thought of it. Should be prominently displayed somewhere.01:48
Saikjrib; ah.. lol01:48
richardcavellhow do you get a message like jrib returns to his bottle now?01:48
jribOttifantSir: you know about « man intro »?01:48
Cyber_AkumaI see01:48
danbhfiveRicochet: are you on 8.10? or 9.04?01:48
jribrichardcavell: /me foo01:48
* richardcavell is testing01:49
thewanderer_Cyber_Akuma: that's how it's usually done in Linux. GUI stuff might be fancy, but it allows for less control and does have bugs sometimes...01:49
=== jon is now known as Guest58031
Cyber_AkumaSo can I make the swap partition in gparted then label it with mkswap?01:49
richardcavelljrib: thanks01:49
marks256mattgyver, yep they are there. wonder why they don't show on the network...01:49
thewanderer_Cyber_Akuma: mkswap *makes* the swap partition, so that would be pointless.01:49
Cyber_AkumaI understand thewanderer_, but a gui can really help make sense out of something complicated01:49
mattgyvermarks256, dont know, can you access them from there?01:49
Saikjrib; I never grant wishes, I like to torment people P01:49
Cyber_Akumacase in point: when the hdd has 7 partitions01:49
OttifantSirjrib: I hope you are a djinn of gentle nature then, and not a djinn from the stories of the old Arabian tales. And no, I didn't know about that. Nowhere in close to four years with Linux have I seen that info.01:49
jribSaik: :o01:49
marks256mattgyver, what do you mean?01:49
Cyber_Akumait was a LOT easier to tell what it was liek with a gui than with a bunch of numbers01:49
Ricochetdanbhfive: 8.1001:49
mattgyvermarks256, can you view the contents from within those folders?01:50
Cyber_AkumaAnd this is coming from someone who frequently pulls up the command shell in windows01:50
khelvanHi, I am trying to get a Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 working, and after some struggles have finally gotten cheese to see it. But now the frame rate is about 5. The cheese support says that I should change between xvimagesink and ximagesink -  how in the world do I do that?01:50
thewanderer_Cyber_Akuma: the GUI only operates on /dev/sd* or whatever the partitions are called01:50
danbhfiveRicochet: ok, set your xorg.conf, and install that .deb file01:50
Guest58031does anybody know how to get windows vista back.i did downlound ubuntu linux on my vista os system01:50
marks256mattgyver, yes. the weird thing is, print$ doesn't even show up on the network... it is like my system has vanished, yet i can still use the print share?01:50
thewanderer_Cyber_Akuma: so figuring out where your partition devices are is the very first thing to do.01:50
mattgyvermarks256, have you restarted since this all has started happening?01:50
Cyber_AkumaYeah, I need to renumber them too, since they are really out of order now, its confusing01:50
Ricochetdanbhfive: how do i install an xorg.conf and put it in? or should i edit the xorg.conf?01:51
marks256mattgyver, yes. it stopped working a few weeks ago when i networked my printer01:51
thewanderer_Cyber_Akuma: you can reference partitions by Linux numbers, UUID or labels.01:51
mattgyverGuest58031, did you overwrite vista?01:51
marks256mattgyver, i've just been putting my videos on a jump drive, but i'm tired of that and want my share back :)01:51
Guest58031i think so01:51
Cyber_Akumathewanderer_: But when mounted, they appear on your desktop as their labels, which is why I like to label them01:51
danbhfiveRicochet: well, save both the xorg.conf and the .deb file to your desktop01:51
Guest58031i am not sure01:51
Guest58031i did make ubuntu linux my new os01:52
Ricochetdanbhfive: done01:52
Cyber_AkumaAs for laveling my swap partitions, thats just so I can tell which one I assigned to ubuntu and to opensuse01:52
=== _Apple_ is now known as _MrsApple_
Cyber_AkumaDo I need to label ym swap partition as I make it with mkswap, or can I make it with gparted then label ti with mkswap?01:53
mattgyvermarks256, unfortunately im not too sure why thats happening to you01:53
thewanderer_Cyber_Akuma: you need to label it at creation time, that is, it needs to be labeled with mkswap (unless GParted supports swap labels, I don't know of such a fact).01:53
=== x314 is now known as a1g
danbhfiveRicochet: on a terminal: cd ~/Desktop && sudo cp xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf && sudo dpkg -i libdrm2_2.4.4-1build1_i386.deb01:54
marks256mattgyver, darn :( well thanks for the help anyway :)01:54
Cyber_AkumaBut I can label ext4 partitions with gparted right? or no?01:54
Saikjrib: I';m a mean guy, you should know that by now :P01:54
Saikdoes anyone know id the zd1211b is a RAlink-bsed chip?01:54
mattgyvermarks256, np, if i think of something else ill let you know01:54
thewanderer_Cyber_Akuma: I rarely look into GParted, so I have no idea. I always create my partitions with mkfs, and mk* programs.01:55
thewanderer_Saik: zd1211b is an Atheros chip.01:55
marks256mattgyver, ok thanks. if i find the solution i'll be sure to let you know01:55
Cyber_AkumaI tried them, didnt like them, how I had to manually count everyything to know where the partitions are and where to make them01:55

Saikthewanderer_, do you know if there's a win 7 driver for it?01:56
Cyber_Akumaso can I use any of these commandline tools to just label a partition?01:56
Cyber_Akumanot create one?01:56

thewanderer_Saik: not really. just look around.01:57
KuaeraI'm really desperately seeking help on this one.01:57
jribuser01: delete the directory or learn how to use useradd :)01:58

jribuser01: or rename the directory and move it back instead of delete01:58
NitrousoxideI need help, i just got the newest server edition, and i sudo apt-get install untuntu-desktop doesnt work01:58
jribNitrousoxide: pastebin the output you get01:58
danbhfiveRicochet: well, no errors I think means its all good01:58
jrib!pastebin | Nitrousoxide01:58
ubottuNitrousoxide: pastebin is a service to post multiple-lined texts so you don't flood the channel. Ubuntu pastebin is at  http://paste.ubuntu.com | To post !screenshots use http://tinyurl.com/imagebin | !pastebinit to paste directly from  command line | Make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic01:58
OttifantSirxcdfgkjhgcv: AviDemux is very easy to use and has the possibility of adding subtitles with a filter during encoding.01:58
NitrousoxideYes i know what pastebin is01:58
danbhfiveRicochet: but, you know, 9.04 might work better by default01:58
Ricochetdanbhfive: yeah, no error messages so I suppose we're in business01:59
danbhfiveRicochet: you may want to make an extra partition, and just try 9.0401:59
NitrousoxideBut its on a different computer, how am i meant to get it?01:59
NitrousoxideType it out?01:59
xcdfgkjhgcvOttifantSir: Adding subtitles to avidemux is too complicated.01:59
jribNitrousoxide: does the other computer not have internet access?01:59
xcdfgkjhgcvOttifantSir: Ubuntu is Linux for human beings.01:59
Ricochetdanbhfive: yeah the walkthrough was in 8.10 so i figured it would work better that way then i can just upgrade right?01:59
NitrousoxideYes it does, but its on server, Just server, so how am i meant to upload it?01:59
jribNitrousoxide: you may use pastebinit02:00
Ricochetdanbhfive: so whats our next move?02:00
jumbersIs there any way to make keyboard macros for the gnome terminal so that it can just quickly paste a command in for me?02:00
jribjumbers: are aliases not sufficient?02:00
danbhfiveRicochet: yes, thats true.  You should follow that walkthrough only on 8.10.  That was correct.  BUT, you are just installing drivers.  each release has newer drivers.  So, 9.04 might work by default02:00
OttifantSirxcdfgkjhgcv: What do you mean it's too difficult to do in AviDemux? To write subtitles for a video? AviDemux isn't for that. I know there are stand-alone programs for that, then you can use AviDemux to hardcode them to the video.02:00
jumbersjrib: I just figured it would be handy to have keyboard shortcuts02:01
Saikhow do I list all dev/*da* partions in terminal?02:01
Nitrousoxideim trying to get it to work, i used sudo apt-get install unbuntu-desktop, But that froze on 0%, i tried sudo aptitude install ubuntu-desktop, but that just did nt do anything, ok ill paste bin it, if i can02:01
xcdfgkjhgcvOttifantSir: Surely it'd be easier for a video editor to include such a feature? I want a very simple video editor.02:01
blacknred0is there a way to perform year to year compression in gnucash?02:01
jribjumbers: don't know.  You could rig something up with xbindkeys I guess02:01
jumbers!info xbindkeys02:02
ubottuxbindkeys (source: xbindkeys): Associate a combination of keys or mouse buttons with a shell command. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.8.2-1 (jaunty), package size 34 kB, installed size 160 kB02:02
thewanderer_Saik: cat /proc/partitions | egrep ".*da.*"02:02
OttifantSirSaik: wouldn't fdisk -l | grep da do the trick?02:02
jrib!pastebinit | Nitrousoxide02:02
ubottuNitrousoxide: pastebinit is the command-line equivelent of !pastebin . Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output. Simple usage: command-name | pastebinit02:02
jumbersjrib: That looks like it might be what I need actually02:02
Ricochetdanbhfive: I tried to install it and when i tried this walk through some things didnt work.. but i suppose i havent had the best of luck on this already.. so thats why i was thinking to go with the walk through then upgrade.. but i could have been wrong02:02

KuaeraPerhaps could someone direct me to where I can find why my glxheads reports a supported OpenGL version of 1.3 on a card that has 2.0 capabilities?02:04
OttifantSirxcdfgkjhgcv: Programs become more complex with time, but usually developers think of a program that does what they want, and the (maybe old) Linux philosophy is that you make a program to do ONE function and do that extremely well.02:04
MefachedIs there any way to prevent Ubuntu from installing GRUB?02:04
quadxHi, I need some help uninstalling ubuntu and restoring space to my windows xp install. Can anyone help me?02:04

khelvanxcdfgkjhgcv, Have you tried kdenlive?02:05
xcdfgkjhgcvOttifantSir: Streaming video, downloading files, browsing the web, etc.02:05
jribquadx: try ##windows02:05
xcdfgkjhgcvkhelvan: No, because I don't want to download all the KDE libraries.02:05
uknownis there a way to roll back drivers on ubuntu02:05
NitrousoxideOdd. pastebinit doesnt work02:05
Ricochetdanbhfive: so what do we do next? do i need a thumb drive for this next bit?02:05
jribNitrousoxide: what happens?02:05
NitrousoxideOne sec02:05
jribuknown: why do you want to do that?02:05
danbhfiveRicochet: have you tried 9.04 before?02:05
Ricochetdanbhfive: yes02:06
khelvanxcdfgkjhgcv, I think kdenlive will do what you are looking for. To me, downloading KDE libraries is a small price to pay for a program that does what you want.02:06
xcdfgkjhgcvkhelvan: I will only use the bandwidth if I know for certain it will do what I want it to do.02:06
edbianjrib: He installed one that doesn't support his hardware.  He wants to use the previous one.  (That's all I know based on his questions earlier)02:06
danbhfiveRicochet: and it didnt work...  well, I have to go I'm afraid02:06
xcdfgkjhgcvkhelvan: Bandwidth and limited SSD space. :(02:06

danbhfiveRicochet: cool, gl!02:06
khelvanxcdfgkjhgcv, kdenlive gives you multiple video tracks, one of which you can set up as a title track and have it do/say what you want.02:06
OttifantSirxcdfgkjhgcv: This is getting offtopic, and it is also a highly volatile discussion, so if you wish it to coninue, PM me02:07
edbiancreeed: It should do it for you automatically.  Does it not?02:07
khelvanxcdfgkjhgcv, unlimited number of tracks, that is. It is a little bit like Sony Vegas, without as many plugins. If you're familiar with Vegas...02:07

OttifantSirNitrousoxide: I have had the same problem from time to time. With very few mirrors in Norway, it sometimes happen that they're down. That *might* be what's happening to you. Or your ISP has some connectivity issues. Or it may be something completely different, and you should keep on asking.02:25
Paddy_NIpatrinstar: no.. it has a gadget designer though02:25
darthanubisPaddy_NI: I just never ran into an issue where Envy was NEEDED, but if it works for people cool.02:25
[Dark-Star]right now i have went to hardware drivers and enabeled ver.180 and run terminal with sudo -s and nvidia-xconfig and restart the xserver and i sett get this error02:25
darthanubisThe default restricted driver manager is excellent02:26
Paddy_NIpatrinstar: it should be listed under accessories02:26
patrinstarpaddy_NI sorry, i meant it has a designer too02:26

th0rMrPiracy: you can just enter it at bootup on the initial screen...at the bottom I think it says Options, or Other options, or something like that02:32
Paddy_NIpatrinstar: nice one02:32
Zxcvbrichardcavell: in order to make it work, I have to go into the bluetooth device manager, delete the entry for the mouse, and then repair it02:32
Nitrousoxidejrib: let me tryi n windows then server02:32
th0rMrPiracy: then if it works you can add it to /boot/grub/menu.lst02:32

MrPiracychemixalx: u got a pentium2? do u happen to know if these machines could still run windows 3.11?02:35
TwoToneSpiritbruenig: But even if I have a VPN, will X server power more than one client?  In other words, the X client will run on another computer and behave just as if I was sitting there?  (And in addition someone might actually be sitting there?)02:35

Nitrousoxidejrib: any ideas?02:37
th0rMrPiracy: add it to the end of the kernel line02:37

MrPiracyth0r: just tell me how to add this to grub and iĺl risk .... i can create two grub options and one with noacpi option to see if it goes02:37
MrPiracyth0r: just like that? ... not -noacpi?02:38
chemixalxhowever, linux is running on it very swiftly, fast and all. Still I wanna make my laptop files accessible from my pentium, and manage my files remotely from there (ftp, torrent, etc. )02:38
th0rMrPiracy: just noacpi it goes at the end of the kernel line02:38
MrPiracychemixalx: i need to get some info from an old program i cant run on newer computer, it has to be windows 3.1102:38
th0rMrPiracy: that should turn off the kernel modules for battery and power management02:38

OttifantSirJoeKerr: If you mean you want to be able to use the files on the other machines, you have to use SAMBA all right. Controlling the desktops can be done with a number of programs. I'm partial to Gnome-RDP myself.02:48

thiblahuteHi, I am using jaunty with the latest gnome-do from this ppa: https://launchpad.net/~do-core/+archive/ppa , it works well but I can't make it start at startup.

[GLOBALJIHAD]wtf kind of freenode channnel is tis?02:52

gbear142751r3l1c: got it.. should i delete the files within the "files" directory?02:53
outoftimeRicochet: cool, yeah I'll probably do a minimal ubuntu install and then just throw in the packages i need... i hear good things about crunchbang as well02:53
jribNitrousoxide: take a look at ifconfig02:53
Nitrousoxidejrib: i dont understand too, no matter what02:53

NitrousoxideNoo, He was helping me02:54
thiblahuteBlizzerand: And I have it in the ~/.conf directory. I also thgought it might be because it needs compiz to be startup first because I had this issue before but the effect it had before was only opening it normally (I mean the docky didn't work). But this time iit simply doesn't start. And since I added it after the compiz entry in "Startup Application" I shouldn't have problem about that02:55
th0rMrPiracy: but I am afraid there isn't much help there...there are a couple of workarounds mentioned02:55

flandersI created a shortcut launcher to a simple script I wrote; however, the script requires root privileges to run. It contains "rmmod" and "modprobe" in it.

NitrousoxideMrPirate: one is RTL81D03:18
RicochetNitrousoxide: so how do i do that? just start punching random things in? I dont think I know enough about ubuntu to do that..03:18

OttifantSirflanders: Yes. I don't know if it's truly possible to have a dialog enter your superuser password, but you will probably get the answer to your question in #bash if you can understand them. Looked at them the other night, and to me it was ancient Greek03:23
MrPiracyNitrousoxide: well, that mite be the problem then .... wouldn't it be easier to move the dvd drive into the final machine?03:23
flandersI hear you.03:24
NitrousoxideMrPriacy: let me shorten it, I ahve a working windwos 7 computer, i took the 7 drive out put a blank one, wrote to it, then into my other machine, it was installed on completley different hardware03:24

NeroonMrPiracy: No i didnt, Nitrousoxide. I asked IF you did so03:26
RicochetNitrousoxide: You are.03:26

No matter what you change the brightness file entry to, the next time you start your computer, it's going to use the default brightness again. There fore you have to run them at startup to solve  .03:40
NitrousoxideNeroon:in linux03:41
jfaosdpahh, ok thanks03:41
NeroonNitrousoxide: What?03:41
MrPiracyNeroon: i extracted the important lines ... http://pastebin.org/313003:41
MrPiracyNitrousoxide: now i am03:41
Blizzerandjfaosdp : So even if you can run ./brightness no use as every setting will be lost when you reboot ....03:41
NitrousoxideNeroon: "itrousoxide: Check yourself: Type Mrpi and press tab"03:42
jfaosdpBlizzerand: my first problem was that my pc was too hot ... so i thought that it was for the brightness03:42
NitrousoxideMrPiracy: i have an old machine, its come down to network or USB boot03:42
mistereverywherehello all i have an hp pavillion dv7 laptop that has a built in wireless card and when i try to connect to a wireless network with wpa protection it cycles the power of the wireless card, any one know of a fix for this?03:42
jfaosdpBlizzerand: i thought so, because i have an iMac, and screen + cpu is all in one03:43
FlynsarmyHow do i enable all scripts for current domain in noscript? not whitelisting a specific domain, i mean current domain for any page i'm browsing03:43
NeroonMrPiracy: Then take out the nvidia-auto-select +0+0 from your xorg.conf03:43
Blizzerandjfaosdp : lol Brightness cannot be a factor for that .03:43
jfaosdpso what :S03:43
MrPiracyNeroon: hmmmm ok, brb03:43
NeroonMrPiracy: And as you can see, you can forget the preferred mode line03:43
MrPiracyNitrousoxide: one more reason for u to add a dvd drive to it ... it will be the only possible way for u to install ubuntu correctly03:44
MrPiracyNeroon: yes03:44
Blizzerandjfaosdp : Try the ubuntu forums  or some tech forums . Do yo have a windows partition03:44

mattgyverHow can i logout my servers gnome session to the terminal without restarting?03:45
NeroonMrPiracy: It works now?03:45
Flynsarmyarand, there is 'enable all for this page' but that will only whitelist the current page, not the current domain regardless of what URL you hvae loaded won't it?03:46
mistereverywherei have a wireless card that cycles power and doesnt connect when trying to connect any ideas on how to fix this?03:46
Neroonmattgyver: go to terminal 1: ctr+al+f1 and type: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop i guess. If it doesnt work you might get to x with ctrl+alt+f7 or f8, not sure with gnome03:47
arandFlynsarmy: The top toolbar applet has more options and from what I hear, the one you're after.03:47
Blizzerandjfaosdp : Ah never mind , I am sure why your PC gets hot but it cannot be the brightness and I cannot be much of help . Try the forums03:47
MrPiracyNeroon: was editing the file ... i have to REBOOT because i cant restart X, remember? ;)03:47

Bob_DoleMac OS and linux made me enjoy computing again..mac more so than linux, but I needed faster hardware than a 2.33ghz Core 2 Duo, a MAX of 3 GB RAM(not 3.5) and a ATI Radeon X1600 video card.. for something in my budget.04:22

bastidrazorekimmargni, before 8.10 that is how any xorg.conf would look.04:25
izapjulian__: alsamiser04:25
arandCyber_Akuma: vi is only annoying if you have not come to terms with it, once you are confortable with it it's very usable. But it does require the step of learning it before it is properly useful..04:25
umanjulian__: just run the program alsamixer in your favorite terminal emulator04:25
Guest92063hey noobs !!!04:26
Nitrousoxidegogeta: How can i reboot into install cd from ubuntu server WHEN, the bios has no boot from disk function04:26

Nitrousoxidegogets:us boot?04:34
Steve_gmoss: no fstab stuff... lets just try to mount it so you see it on your desktop so you can update the settings again04:35
Guest92063after you will say that we cannot play on linux, I use a guitar for frets on fire and a gamepad and play a lot ... don't be a jerk ...04:35

richardcavellbastidrazor: isn't it just bandwidth that slows it down?04:35
uknowcan anyone help me with  Display04:35
bastidrazorrichardcavell, no.04:35
Dr_willisI find vnc over my gigibit lan rather useable.. with a light enough window mnager04:35
richardcavellbastidrazor: and in any case, what alternative do you have that is faster?04:35
buckyrredd4: does it have a firewire port on it?04:35
RicochetHey Guys, I have a question real fast.. I have edited my xorg.conf and added some applications and such.. If I upgrade to 9.04 (I am in 8.10 now) will I lose everything?!04:35

Steve_pagoda: good old flash drive er somthing04:36
richardcavellbastidrazor: Doesn't VNC work by simply getting the X-window server to send the data over the network?04:36
Nitrousoxidegogeta: No, thisquestion first arouse when i tohught it DIDNT have a boot order," Nitrousoxide: but you said it does support it was just hidden away"04:37

Guest92063does a non noob linux specialist knows about tv tuner setup here ?04:37
Dr_willisrichardcavell:  vnc can work in several differnt ways dependiong on the vnc server. :)04:37

pagodaSteve_: it's the same computer, i'm dual-booting. can i download the package with windows, then install it from linux?04:37
richardcavellDr_willis: well what about the 'Remote Desktop Viewer' that's built in to Ubuntu?04:37
Steve_gmoss: sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /media/???/04:37
Dr_willisGuest92063:  the #mythbuntu guys know a LOT about tv tuners. :)  thers such a varity of them out.. the Mythbuntu forums are also a good place to check04:37
FloridaGuybastidrazor, you useing a lcd tv for your monitor04:37
Roastedguest92063 - I'm confused. what is /tmp? How do I save a video through that? Its a flash video embedded on a web site I want to download. I cant figure out how.04:37
rredd4bucky  besides, i don't have a firewire cable\04:37
buckyrredd4: well i googled 10 pages about it and that's all i could come up with... that firewire works better than usb on those04:38
bastidrazorFloridaGuy, yes, my 47" tv via SVideo..04:38
rredd4bucky i will check the manual, ty04:38
Dr_willisrichardcavell:  thats the gnome built in vnc viewer it shows the current desktop.. others like vnc4server and tightvnc do NOT show the current desktop. they work 'faster' for me..  for my needs.04:38
richardcavellwho just tried to connect to my port 5900?04:38
Steve_pagoda: sounds tricky... i never did it SOMONE else should help ya:04:38
izaphow can i get the bottom panel back on ? i turned it off/deleted it somehow lol04:38
ghindoRoasted, /tmp is the directory for temporary files in the Linux filesystem.  If you load a flash video, the video should also load in /tmp04:38
Nitrousoxidegoget: my problem is now sloved, thanks04:38
ctmjr!panel | izap04:39
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about panel04:39
kyle__hey....nice to meet you ..04:39
bastidrazorizap, right click the top panel and new panel04:39
Roastedghindo - Let me get this straight... if I watch a video through firefox that's a flash video, it'll somehow "download" temporarily to the /tmp folder??04:39
rredd4bucky  have to go, ty for your help04:39
ctmjr!panels | izap04:39
ubottuizap: To reset the panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »04:39
ghindoRoasted, Correct.04:39
richardcavellsome bugger just port scanned me from here. Who was it?04:39

gmossSteve_: got it mounted again, thanks much!04:40
brianwhat widget app do you guys like the most04:40
ghindoRoasted, You have to load the video entirely in the browser and the video _should_ show up in /tmp04:40
RicochetHey Guys, I have a question real fast.. I have edited my xorg.conf and added some applications and such.. If I upgrade to 9.04 (I am in 8.10 now) will I lose everything?!04:40
Roastedghindo - just let it buffer completely? Or completely watch it? I'm just confused over how this works...04:40
Steve_pagoda: humm maby its on the CD... ?  9.0404:41
ghindoRoasted, Just let it buffer completely04:41
pagodaSteve_: hmm i don't have a cd. i downloaded it04:41
Dr_willisRicochet:  added applications to 'xorg.conf' ? i think theres some confusion going on..04:41
Roastedghindo - I'm pretty sure it did buffer completely, becuase this is the 2nd time I'm watching it without having refreshed the web site...04:41
Dr_willisRicochet:  xorg.conf defines your video settings and a few other things.. not applications04:41
smacfarlSo why is my update failing?04:41
ghindoRoasted, Well, what are you seeing in the /tmp directory?04:42
Steve_pagoda: u dont have a cd..? are you in a VM and mounted an ISO?04:42
RicochetDr_willis: I edited my xorg.conf, and i added some applications such as evtouch and stuff like that.. they were different statements.. sorry for the confusion04:42
Roastedhsperdata, keyring, orbit, pulse, pulse, seahorse, ssh, virtual-jason, clipboard cache, gnomesystemmonitor, vinagre04:42
Steve_pagoda: or installed using PXE?04:42
albechwhat can it be that cause dnsmasq to not resolve? when doing a NS lookup it return ** server can't find google.com: REFUSED04:42

ubottuh_: Ubuntu 9.04 has a known regression for some Intel graphics support. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/IntelPerformance and http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1130582 for more information.04:44
Roastedghindo - did you get that?04:44
Steve_gmoss: o sorry im in a shitty IRC client is the charset bad?04:44
ghindoRoasted, Yeah, just gimme a sec04:44
gmossSteve_: cyrillic filenames show up as '?', trying to fix this04:44
Roastedsteve - theres kindergarten rules around here. If you dont wanna get banned 40 times over you might wanna say shoot instead :P04:44
Steve_gmoss: i dont think utf8 is bad.04:44
Steve_gmoss: bad font?04:45
gmossSteve_: no, that's the option that broke the HAL mout04:45
kyle__do u know how to use kvm ?04:45
gmossSteve_: I think I'll just ditch using HAL and go back to fstab, because I know how to get that working. Thanks a bunch for your help :-)04:46
ghindoRoasted, Try refreshing /tmp and checking again.  I'm loading a YouTube video and it's loading into /tmp as well, so it _should_ be the same in your case04:46
kyle__i'm using v-box now...04:46
Steve_gmoss: np04:46
tonsofpcsgot a v4l2 device, scantv is saying there is no tuner on it.  Anyone know how I can get the tuner working?  I have used it in linux before, but not jaunty.  It's a em28xx chipset, connected via usb04:46
briananyone got a fav widget app04:46
Roastedghindo - I went to youtube and it loads a video in tmp, but this particular web site doesnt show anything in tmp04:47

trelaynehi all, I'm running Jaunty and trying out 2.6.30RC1. But my wireless' driver needs to be recompile. I understand that all I have to do is install bcmwl-kernel-source.. but's it's not in the Jaunty repos?04:52
kyle__ubuntu how to apt mysql gui deb04:53
kyle__who can help me04:53
duane1does anyone know if there is any way to point virtualbox to a hard drive that has xp already installed04:53
Steve_dmsg-reconfigure bcmwl-.....04:53
samtihen duane1: pretty sure that doesn't work04:53
samtihensorry man04:53
Dr_willisduane1:  its doable.. but from what i hear dangerous to the  data integerity of the drive.. check the vbox docs. i THINK its in there..04:53
richardcavellduane1: no, it's not possible04:53
obf213did anyone elses vlc / x11 video break recently?04:53
Steve_trelayne: dmsg-reconfigure bcmwl-.....04:54
richardcavellDr_willis: he can't do it because it's installed on his hardware rather than the virtual hardware04:54
trelaynethanks Steve..04:54
Dr_willisrichardcavell:  i recall the docs mentioning how you can makually make a config file that does all ow you do do it.04:54
Steve_trelayne: o dont thank me unless it works04:54
Dr_willisrichardcavell:  theres also big warnings saying to NOT do it. :)04:54
Steve_trelayne: while crazy guess04:54
richardcavellDr_willis: I bet there are04:54
richardcavellDr_willis: you can teach it to read and write the volume raw (as in, access the drive filesystem rather than a virtual hard disk)04:55
samtihenDr_willis: ya, i think its a serious special case thing that :sorta: works04:55
duane1thanks... I would of been up all night if I thought I could get it04:55
trelayneSteve_,  hmmm   I don't see such at command ?04:55

jareepbastid_razor:  Wow...that driver really screwed things up on my system.  I had to reinstall xorg completely.  I'm back up using vesa.05:35
umandustin_: yes, just copy that into a file, name it wherever you like and put it in whatever directory05:35
umandustin_: use chmod to ensure it is executable05:36
umanthen just cd to the directory you put it in and do ./name_of_script05:36
bastidrazorjareep, the latest drivers aren't always the best route to go. you should be able to reinstall the restricted drivers now05:36

bastidrazorjareep, vesa is the default driver.. in the future it is good to remember. you can always get a GUI back with vesa05:37

ThatGuyOverThereIs there a command that will let me restart all networking?05:42
R0ncoTokeOnce i boot up Jaunty it takes 5-10 minutes for the Network Manager to start up automatically, i just run /etc/init.d/NetworkManager start and it starts without any problem. Any one know why this is happening ?05:42
ThatGuyOverThereOr maybe just restarting Network Manager would work, I dunno...05:42
ThatGuyOverThereI'm using 9.04.05:42
Steve_ThatGuyOverThere: sudo reboot05:42
durtNetLarIrvine, best bet would be to open synaptic search for what packages provided the icon sets you use and reinstall them05:42
dragon_ThatGuyOverThere: sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart05:43
dragon_ThatGuyOverThere: sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager restart05:43
R0ncoTokeThatGuyOverThere, /etc/init,d/NetworkManager restart05:43
NetLarIrvinedurt: it is just that whole folder05:43
ThatGuyOverThereThanks. I saw that for some older Ubuntu versions and wondered if the same applied to 9.04.05:43
dravekxI just installed ff3.5, but it still says ff3.0.11 :(05:43
R0ncoTokeNetLarIrvine, Install a new icon set.05:44
dravekxdo I hafta restart ubuntu?05:44
NetLarIrvineWell It will not let me get online, I have to get the file off the disk05:44
Dr_willisdravekx:  reread what the BOT SAID05:44
Dr_willis!ff35 | dravekx05:44
ubottudravekx: Firefox 3.5 Final is available for Jaunty by installing the package firefox-3.5 | FF3.5 is referred to as Shiretoko on your UI, see http://is.gd/1reB3 for an explanation | Hardy & Intrepid: http://is.gd/1jkNY05:44
durtNetLarIrvine, but many packages put files into it.05:44
R0ncoTokedravekx, See if you have something called Shiretoko web browser05:44
Dr_willisdravekx:  it does not replace the 3.0.11 it has its own icon/name05:44
SnakDocdravekx its named  Shiretoko05:44
NetLarIrvineoh well I am screwed I guess05:45
Dr_willisdravekx:  and yes.. its supposed to not replace it.. :)05:45
dravekxthanks guys! :)05:45
ThatGuyOverThereAnyway, does anybody have any experience with Ubuntu on the PS3? 'Cause that's the machine I can't seem to get networking to work on. :/05:45
Dr_willisThatGuyOverThere:  i know theres specific web sites that cover it.. and thats ablut all i know on the topic. :()05:45
ThatGuyOverThereI tried looking on the IRC channel list for a PS3 specific channel, but I guess there isn't one. :/05:46
ThatGuyOverThereI guess I'll look on PSUbuntu's website.05:46
p8nneed help disabling a device?05:46
dragon_!ask | p8n05:46
ubottup8n: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)05:46
losherNetLarIrvine: trouble is, every app that uses icons installs their own into /usr/share/icons, so there's no easy way to repopulate it, unless you want to reinstall everything you've ever installed over again. Nasty business....05:46
Guest40885ThatGuyOverThere try wicd05:46
p8nwell my laptop has a touchstick and touchpad, and the touchstick is messed up, and i was wondering if/how i could disable just the stick.05:47
NetLarIrvineiosher: your right, just starting over05:47
dragon_NetLarIrvine: try `sudo aptitude reinstall gnome-icon-theme`05:47
ThatGuyOverThereSo about wicd, does it support KDE?05:47
ThatGuyOverThereI'm thinking of switching to Kubuntu.05:48
ThatBoogiemanSo Gnome / Run Xclient script for my Ubuntu 8.04 isn't booting up properly.  After logging in, that tan/brown background color comes up, then my mouse, then a white/gray box in the upper left corner of the screen.  Nothing happens after that.  I'm stuck using KDE/4 and I don't enjoy it at all.05:48
NetLarIrvinedragon_:network connection does not work too05:48
dragon_NetLarIrvine: because of that icon folder? i missed some of the messages..05:48
Dr_willisThatBoogieman:  wicd should work in kde also.05:49
NetLarIrvineYes, seems that when that folder is deleted, some things will not work05:49
Steve_ThatBoogieman: come on KDE is not to bad.. once you remove all the widgets05:49
R0ncoTokeThatBoogieman, Did you try configure any thing related to display ?05:49
p8ndoes anyone have an idea?05:49
dravekxhow do I make shiretoko the default browser?05:49
NetLarIrvineI learned lesson, know now I need to be more careful05:49
Dr_willisdravekx:  i would suggest you just dont...  its not as fully tested as 3.0.1105:50

Henry5may I know, is there have any sftp client in UBuntu?05:51
dragon_!sftp | Henry505:51
ubottuHenry5: SSH is the Secure SHell protocol, see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSHHowto for client usage. Putty is an SSH client for Windows; see: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ for it's homepage. See also !scp (Secure CoPy) and !sshd (Secure SHell Daemon)05:51
R0ncoTokeHenry5, Google is a good friend.05:52
Henry5is sftp is a shh?05:52
NetLarIrvineiosher: now I know what they mean do backups first05:52
dragon_Henry5: SFTP is natively supported in Linux. In Gnome, go to Places > Connect to Server...05:52
Henry5I googling already05:52
dragon_!google | R0ncoToke05:52
ubottuR0ncoToke: While Google is useful for helpers, many newer users don't have the google-fu yet. Please don't tell people to "google it" when they ask a question.05:52
Henry5but I still confuse05:52
alteregoa[Google] No results found for: | R0ncoToke.05:52
losherHenry5: there is, it's called sftp, and it's in the package named openssh-client.05:52
Henry5There have Openssh and Openssl05:52
Henry5what is Openssl and what is OpenSsh?05:53
dragon_Henry5: don't have to worry about those packages. They are installed by default.05:53
Henry5the server given05:54
losherdragon_: openssh isn't installed by default, at least, not in 8.04....05:54
dragon_losher: openssh-client was installed by default. I'll confirm in a sec.05:54
Henry5url to make sftp with server, 2. the username, 3. Password NO password required, 4 A public file05:54
Henry5I tried using the winscp and filezilla05:55
losherdragon_: actually I withdraw my remark. The *server* is not installed by default...05:55

Xodiac13its something like that05:58
SnakDocDr_willis you ever try xfce ?05:58
Dr_willisXodiac13:  with stuff like that - its a good idea to run the installer/install the game to the users home directory. not the system (dont run the .run as root)  i think it just copies everything to one single directory. and you could just delete that dir.05:58
Dr_willisSnakDoc:  yep. dident like some parts of it. if i want minimal i use jwm + rox filer05:59
R0ncoTokeSnakDoc, How is xfce ?05:59

Dr_willisXodiac13:   you could reinstall it (run the installer as the user)  or see if djl has it.       I was really impressed with djl06:02
Dr_willisXodiac13:  i think so. you could rerun the .run and see if it has an uninstall option06:02
SnakDocR0ncoToke you ever try xfce ?06:02
Xodiac13Dr_willis: and it will install it just fine with no permission doing the game and will save my profile06:02

DrumrollWindows proved that it was a HUGE security risk to have administrator profiles open all the time.  Linux sought to fix that by enabling admin to be open ONLY when you NEED it (via sudo), and I think it's reasonable.  Quick access is slightly (but not totally) negated for more security.06:51

buckyrichardcavell: no..07:30
Drumrollerikk71: COMPIZ,, is a way to engage more advanced graphical features with your desktop if your graphics card can support 3D acceleration.  It's pretty snazzy, but older cards have a hard time with it.07:30
gartralis there any way to make tracker work like the search in Mac OSX and have it combine results from a dictionaray/encyclopedia with the files on the drives?07:30
richardcavellbucky: it's definitely not for beginners07:30
OttifantSirerikk71: A really nice tool for graphical effects on your desktop, the best-known effect being the Desktop Cube, where you can "flip" your screen as if it were on a cuve07:30

Alex___errik71: Then click System > Preferences > Screensaver and select one... then try letting the screen go black... see this time if it A. locks up and B. has a black screen or a screensaver07:30
Alex___The only problem with Compiz is it fcks up everything else >.>07:31
nomad77rodwell: problu uvcvideo like mine same mfr i have07:31
gartralAlex___: compiz has given me 0 problems out of the box07:31
erikk71end up killing another hard drive07:31
OttifantSirAlex___: It doesn't mess up EVERYTHING else. True, Compiz interferes with some things, but not all.07:32
erikk71by holding in power button07:32
ThreetimesHi! What does "tilp: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libticables2.so.1: undefined symbol: usb_deb" mean?07:32
Alex___gartral & OttifantSir: Compiz messes up Flash, Java and screensavers for me. As well as lagging my computer despite having very good hardware. =(07:32
DrumrollCompiz has the best support on nVida cards at the moment.  ATI cards can use it but it's a little slow and choppy.07:33
Alex___I suppose it's because I'm an ATI fan then ;)07:33
Alex___ATI & Linux don't mix =(07:33

ThreetimesAlex___: Sincew I have the right driver version (9.3+), it just works. I use ATi too.07:33
erikk71this is p4 dell gx 27007:34
OttifantSirAlex___: Biggest problem I've had with it has been with it cutting off the titlebar of Moovida. You seem to have had a bad experience is all. I run Compiz on Intel 945GM with 128MB shared RAM, and have no lagging whatsoever. I actually have LESS processor use with it than Metacity.07:34
Cyber_AkumaI noticed when trying to use GParted to shrink away all the unpartitioned space in an extended partition that it would leave 7-8 megs in there. Is this because of that "round to cylinders" option or is osmething else causing it?07:34
gartralAlex___: well, compiz is slow yes, but my comp refuses too play flash no matter WHAT i do, java works great, and i belive that screensavers are a waste of clock cycles07:34
aroonicontrol + alt + delete doesnt seem to work on ubuntu jaunty... ideas?07:34

Mr_Jfrsndoes crunchbang have a room?07:34
Alex___Treetimes: How new is that driver? Last time I screwed with it was 3 weeks ago.07:34
DrumrollAlex__:Maybe because I've had NO problems with Compiz on my nVida comp.  The problem is that ATI just doesn't want to play well with Linux.07:35
DemoIs there a reason why Wine leaves behind the folder structure it creates?07:35
gartralMr_Jfrsn: #crunch|bang but there ussually dead07:35

erikk71i do have other hdd with with ubuntu installed07:35

Alex___Drumroll: I agree =( I can't get dual monitor support or compiz running smoothly with ATI07:36
Drumrollarooni: What function of control+alt+delete are you trying to duplicate?  Closing a program?  Stopping a process?07:36
erikk71i will not go back to winsdows07:36
Mr_Jfrsnhmm thanks07:36
Mr_Jfrsni cant get used to openbox07:36

=== _MrsApple_ is now known as _Apple_
erikk71an that crap07:39
DrumrollAlex___: Compiz works fine on my ATI laptop, but a bit slower so I have to turn it off when certain applications are running.  But on my nVida desktop, it flies with NO problems at all.  A lot of it is that ATI as a company just doesn't seem to be as willing to play ball with Linux as nVida was. *shrugs* It's a shame and the Linux community has tried to get on their backs to write better and more useable drivers for Linux OSes.07:40
erikk71windows 7 is gonna be a nightmare07:40

Cyber_AkumaUmm, its getting praised everywhere, even the creator of ubuntu said he liked it :P07:40
erikk71alot of more controling of the pc07:41
Cyber_AkumaIts not going to be another Vista07:41
ThreetimesThat's scary07:41
buckyThreetimes: that's weird.. hey is your calculator arm based?07:41
Cyber_Akumaalot of more controling of the pc <--- huh?07:41
Alex___I think what Microsofts plan was to release vista as a way to lower everyones expectations, then release 7 so everyone thinks it's amazing ;)07:41
erikk71why everyone gripes about reactos i wonder07:41
Threetimesbucky: z80, it's the TI84+SE07:41
Cyber_Akumalol Alex___07:41
OttifantSirerikk71: I've tried it in a VM, and it seems better than Vista, but that's not really saying much, so.... I'll keep it in there and look in on it from time to time to keep up my skills, but I'll never again have a Microsoft OS on my machines.07:41
Cyber_Akumathat makes no business sense07:41
Cyber_AkumaHonestly, I don't see what everybody's deal with Vista is07:42
erikk71they make more progress than most third party oses07:42
Cyber_AkumaI think its just pure internet bad press07:42
lesshasteI get "E: context.c: waitpid(): No child processes" a lot. It seems to be related to sound. Any fixes?07:42
Alex___Cyber_Akuma: I'm just messing because as far as I'm concerned, XP is still by far the best windows OS07:42
erikk71haiku ois a joke07:42
Cyber_AkumaWell, you should try the RC if you have a spare hdd or pc handy07:42
Cyber_AkumaI did... and now I preordered win707:42
Cyber_Akumacourse... there was a very good preorder sale that ended too, $5007:43
Alex___Cyber_Akuma: I have tried it. And I think it's way better than vista07:43

erikk71it was ok07:44
infidel2si think  win98 < win2k < winxp < vista < windows 707:44
Cyber_AkumaWell, the problem with staying with xp is, it's 64bit support is almost nonexsistant07:44
grawityinfidel2s: exactly07:44
infidel2sthey have progressively got better, aside from that whole windows ME thing07:44
Cyber_Akumathats how I feel too infidel2s07:44
Alex___Cyber_Akuma: Yeah, that is one bad thing about XP07:44
erikk71the distro was very friendly07:44
DrumrollVista was more stable than XP was in terms of having fewer crashes.  it just...  Ran slower because it was much more bloated.  Ugh.  Windows 7 is SUPPOSED to have the XP speed with the Vista stability.  Only time will tell though...  So far, I love Ubuntu though.  And with Compiz, I can get all of the fance Windows Aero features without slowing my computer to a crawl.07:44
OttifantSirCyber_Akuma: Mac is Mac. I love the dock (have AWN for it here), but I don't see myself buying $1000 worth of hardware for the nice price of $4000....07:45

Cyber_AkumaThe only time this system (win2k) crashed on me was07:46
Alex___I just didn't get who you were saying that to. lol07:46

Cyber_Akuma98 was a crashy nightmare for me07:46
OttifantSirCyber_Akuma: No, I thought it reflected very well on the state of Apple, and I took away from it also a very bad Windows-experience: BOB.07:46
Threetimesbucky: there's a tiglusb module, i'll load it now07:47
Cyber_Akumalol, I was wondering if people would think I was talking about that too07:47

Cyber_AkumaI am thinking of upgrading to xp, but07:47
Cyber_Akumaits a hassle07:47
Cyber_AkumaI hace a TON of crap installed here07:47
Alex___What pisses me off is I just got this Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3P and it won't boot from a usb key o.O07:47
Cyber_Akuma.... and a ton of broken stuff, so a upgrade is out of the question, id need a freash install07:48
Condoulois there any way, in Ubuntu/GNOME, where if I create a menu within a menu to create organization, can I drag or move other items into the new sub-menu07:48

buckyThreetimes: http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_usb/linux_install.html07:48
DrumrollAlex___: XP crashed a million and one times for me.  And I've never once had a crash with Vista.  However, XP was speedier.  Microsoft is billing 7 as the best of XP and Vista rolled into one.  People liked the snazzy features that Vista offered but disliked that it took so many resources just to run it.  They liked XP's speed and how it was light on resources.  7 is an attempt to combine the two.07:48

DrumrollAlex___: WINE makes the programs think that they are running on a Windows OS eve though they're not so that you can load them onto your Linux system and play them from it.  And since at this point most Linux OSes are far lighter in resource requirements than Windows 7, it'll allow you to play your games better than ever before.07:58

Cyber_Akuma<Alex___> Cyber_Akuma: That's on a PHONE?? <--- this tegra1 chip will be for phones AND netbooks, it uses max 1.25 watts of power, usually under 1 watt, it can power an mp3 player for DAYS on a single charge. And on top of this, its dual cpu, dual gpu, and several otehr processors. Tegra based phones will be out by late 2009...... and it gets better :)08:01

nevyngrawity: not in kde4 ;)08:14
TenguI know xfce can do it, but we have to activate this behaviour.08:14
Tenguroflparrot: with compiz maybe ?08:14

Cyber_Akuma8.04 I didnt use much08:14
roflparrotYeah with compiz08:14
Cyber_Akuma... no wait08:14

bullgard4There are opened 6 Terminals in Guake. There is no GNOME Terminal open. Why does Ubuntu 9.04 13 processes 'bash'? 6 are 'stopped' and 7 'sleeping'. Does Guake need 2 processes 'bash' per TErminal?08:29

Slartmrpinky: it's listed in the about text too.. but it's kind of sneaky08:42
DrumrollAlex___: That's what you have installed.  ATI's driver for Linux.   They only make one as far as I know.  The open source alternative does not support 3D.  Check the drivers in sytem-admin-hardware drivers and see which one is enabled for your card.  That might be why Compiz failed for you because you're using the open source driver that only supporst 2D?08:42

DrumrollAlex___: That's probably what the Linux version is.  The exact driver that already comes with Ubuntu.  They have it so that other Linux distros that don't have as many pieces of software included (like Ubuntu or Mandriva) can still get it for their OS.08:47

joh yeah, who's go video....i do! thx Spikemcc.09:25
DrumrollAlex___: then you should be working on 9.4, 9.5, or 9.6 I would imagine...  The newer cards have decent support (still not up to nVida levels, but hey, whatcha gonna do?), and should work just fine for most uses...09:25
jyou are making this transition to ubuntu easy.09:25
ahornerOk guys I think #python will help me a bunch.09:25
kosharihelp! alsamixer loads in terminal but after i load a gui (flux) i get snd_ctr_open failed???09:26
Spikemccdoes ubuntu.com as a sources.list maker as www.ubuntu-fr.org ?09:26
Bob_DoleATI has better open-source drivers, so the future is with ATI.. but Nvidia still has better support as a whole, from how I understand things.09:26
SlartSpikemcc: they used to have one.. I don't think it's available any more though09:26
Spikemccif not do one and fast, that is a must-have for beginners !!!09:27
ubottuThe packages in Ubuntu are divided into several sections. More information at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories and http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/components - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecommendedSources for the recommended way to set up your repositories09:27
DrumrollSpikemcc: It's mostly older ATI cards suffering from issues.  The newer ones work like a charm for MOST things...  But nVida supports most of their older cards in 9.04 where ATI does not.  So if you have an OLDER ATI, then you're crippled.09:27
losherSpikemcc: tvtime?09:27
Bob_DoleMy Radeon X1600 is a dropped card. It works fine with the open source drivers. My Radeon 9200 SE is a dropped card..it does not work fine.09:28
Spikemcclosher got no signal on tvtime09:28
koshariDrumroll true, nvidia supports right back to the mx2 cards09:28
ThreetimesDrumroll: what is "older"?09:28
losherSpikemcc: xawtv?09:29
Bob_DoleThreetimes, I think the 2xxx series and earlier09:29
SpikemccDrumroll I'm on linux with an Ati for 5 years, I know all of that ...09:29
Bob_DoleBut it might only be the X1xxx series and earlier.09:29
DrumrollThreetimes: http://blogs.computerworld.com/the_ubuntu_and_ati_blues Read that to get some sense of the problem.09:29
Spikemccxawtv on install ...09:29
Threetimeshmmm, I have a HD 2600XT and it works09:29
ThreetimesSo I'm on the edge?09:30
Bob_DoleThreetimes, Check if it is using the open or closed drivers09:30
DrumrollThreetimes: They say that any ATI card more than a year or so old will have issues with the 94 and above drivers made for ANY linux distro.09:30
SpikemccBob_Dole use ubuntu 8.04 LTS for your cards09:30
SpikemccHD2000 and more work on 9.04 that's why09:31
Bob_DoleSpikemcc, It's too slow regardless, if I had a means of OC'ing it about 50mhz, it'd be worth it.09:31
jerknextdoorany idea why i have to restart X to get my trackpad to work in 9.04?09:31
SpikemccBob_Dole an old Ati on 9.04 for 3d is suicide ...09:31
ThreetimesBob_Dole: I'm using the latest drivers from ATi's site09:31
ji need some tools to let me use my ati x1300 to play movies on my tv, ideally i want to control them via ssh or xrdp, is this going to be possible?09:32
Spikemccif you don't use 3d you're ok09:32
ThreetimesI use 3D (compiz)09:32
Threetimesj: if you can control it via a command-line, it'll work trough ssh too09:33
Alex___I can now run java with compiz on and flash works 10x better with compiz on o.O09:33
fromzyhi all09:33
Alex___Threetimes: Did you say that it actually works with dual monitors now?09:34
fromzyI would like to know if on Linux there is a difference like French OS and US OS ?09:34
Threetimesyes, since I upgraded from 9.4 to 9.609:34
fromzyor the difference is only in the GUI and the Keyboard Map ?09:34
Slartfromzy: there are languages, yes09:34
BlizzerandProfOak : Sorry had trouble with power supply . Did you get the problem solved09:34
Threetimesfromzy: the language and localization settings will be different09:34
* Bob_Dole has lots of computers. most running ATI cards.. HD 3850, X1600, 9200SE, 9000.09:34
Alex___Threetimes: The fact that my monitors weren't the same resolution made it impossible before09:35
jerknextdoorcould anyone poing me in the right direction to start trouble shooting why i have to restart X to get my trackpad buttons to work?  I don't see anything in /var/logs/messages /syslog that points to the trackpad.09:35
ThreetimesAlex___: mine are also different resolutions, i can post my xorg.conf if you like09:35
Slartfromzy: not sure what you mean now.. you think the os is translated.. ie help in your language.. menu options and so on09:35
Alex___Threetimes: I believe you =P09:35
Slartfromzy: *I think the os...09:35
ThreetimesAlex___: http://pastebin.com/f4b8d613209:35

fromzySlart : In fact some software on Windows must have an US OS to work properly. Do we have the same case on Linux ?09:36
Blizzerandfromzy : There are labguage packages of Ubuntu but they are DVDs . I've heard they are not updated often or something of that sort09:36
Slartfromzy: oh.. no.. the OS is the same09:36
CosmiChaosfromzy: a system doesnt operate in stupid english or french ;)09:37
allan_hello all09:37
ThreetimesBlizzerand: nope, you can just install them with system>administration>kanguages and they're up-to-date09:37
Threetimesi'm dutch, so i know :D09:37
allan_has anyone running Cod4 on there ubuntu09:37
Alex___=( Screensaver still screws up09:37
fromzySlart : This is what I think so. In fact if I look at /proc/... the metrics have the same name whatever language I use (French, german, US...)09:37
Slartfromzy: yes.. there are apps that rely on them being named the same..09:38
Threetimesyou can even set the language/localisation per-user, so it must be like that09:38
fromzySlart : Thank a lot Slart and have a nice day09:38
Slartfromzy: you too09:38
jerknextdoornone of my additional buttons seem to work on my thinkpad r51 with 9.04 my volume doenst agree with the panel applet..  my trackpad doesnt like it..etc.09:38
