ctmjrneohashi: run sudo nvidia-xconfig in a terminal then reboot see if that fixes it00:00
th0rh4f1: that should allow you to use two or more sound feeds at once00:00
stefgFloridaGuy: as i just found out gksudo is part of the gksu package00:00
funkyHatth0r: why is installing esound a good idea? esound is deprecated00:00
linuxguy2009Im creating a custom compilation 100% SVG icon theme, and Im wondering if anyone know if a theme is missing an icon for an app, does ubuntu look at a "fallback" set of icons to grab it? Like from Clearlooks or Human maybe?00:00
th0rfunkyHat: I tried pulse and didn't like it...so went back to esound. I admitted already that pulse is the wave of the future...if you want to recommend it to him go ahead00:01
Lostinspace_46th0r coincidently pulse-rt is on of the fies that xmodmap is complaining about00:01
h4f1th0r: I have installed pulseaudio. esound is not even installed00:01
FloridaGuystefg, and thats installed00:01
civixierDr_Willis, thanks for responding. I tried using ./configure --prefix="</usr/local/lib/python3.0/> with the same result. It says that I should write where python is installed, isnt that the right place?00:01
th0rh4f1: if you have pulse installed you should be able to use two or more audio feeds at once...can't have both esound and pulse00:02
stefgFloridaGuy: so what happens if you run gksudo synaptic ?00:02
nonewmsgsis there a way to have fstab autoconfigure itself via a gui or an automatic set up?   i just added a drive00:02
funkyHath4f1: which version of ubuntu?00:02
th0rh4f1: make sure all your audio apps are using pulse as the audio system and not alsa00:03
yommpulseaudio is especially nice if you have multiple linux  boxes , only 1 needs to be connected to an amp , the rest connect via network to the pulseaudio server & play their audio over the network ... quite nice !00:03
h4f1 funkyHat:  90400:03
MxGuys,guys! my sound just stopped working00:03
andresmhhow can I make Ubuntu syncs the time with some kind of web service so it's always on time?00:03
funkyHath4f1: is it upgraded from previous versions, or a fresh install?00:03
Mxhow do I fix it00:04
nonewmsgsth0r, how do you do that?  i have trouble with a java app and k3b00:04
h4f1th0r:  wait so or alsa or pulseaudion or esound ?00:04
FloridaGuystefg, Failed to run synaptic as user root.The underlying authorization mechanism (sudo) does not allow you to run this program. Contact the system administrator.00:04
th0ryomm: yeah....and you are using all those system resources for pulse whether you want a server or not...on every box00:04
funkyHath4f1: pulseaudio00:04
h4f1 funkyHat: upgrade00:04
stefgandresmh: ubuntu uses ntp-sync by default00:04
MxI am 9.0400:04
GammaXanyone know how I can set my video driver from nvidia to vesa?00:04
=== Andre_Gondim-afk is now known as Andre_Gondim
yommth0r , you can easily disable the server side00:04
h4f1cause I use alsa sound, cause only that seems to support my microphont00:04
stefgFloridaGuy: so your user is not a member of admin / sudo group00:04
th0ryomm: you can easily disable pulse <smile>00:04
funkyHath4f1: have you tried to fix your sound before (with previous versions)?00:04
andresmhstefg, where do you configure what server it uses then?00:04
yommdisables th0r  :)00:05
linuxguy2009GammaX: Why in the world would you want to downgrade your video to vesa?00:05
Lostinspace_46I don't understand why xmodmap needs pulse any way way.  But then again when I tried to pipe yesterday, klogd wanted my "Ham" callsign.  Go figure!00:05
th0ryomm: there may be a reason there are so many howtos on removing pulse and installing esound00:05
GammaXlinux, cause i believe its overheating my laptop lol00:05
funkyHath4f1: pulseaudio is a layer on top of alsa, so it should support all cards that alsa supports (there are some bugs though)00:05
h4f1 funkyHat:  the sound is working. but some time can't have two applications accesing the sound/00:05
Mxfunkyhat:I have a sound problem as well00:05
funkyHath4f1: can you check that pulseaudio is running?00:05
FloridaGuystefg, i guess not sence i did alowd root access in advanced user mot on the netinstall cd00:05
th0rh4f1: Mx I have no sound problems at all <smile>00:05
linuxguy2009GammaX: If your laptop is on, its gonna get warm. Changing display to vesa wont do anything but make the screen look like crap.00:06
Guest34901does ubuntu have  ppc version?00:06
Mxneed help with my sound00:06
nonewmsgsis fixing th sound problems a priority for 9.9?00:06
rootlinuxusrGuest: It does.00:06
Mxcan anyone help00:06
funkyHatMx: when did your sound stop working? was it after an update or something?00:06
Guest34901rootlinuxusr is it old or updated?00:06
h4f1funkyHat: Yeap it's running00:06
GammaXlinuxguy2009, As I said before.... Its (over heating) my laptop. An nvidia 8600m puts out osme heat00:07
rootlinuxusrGuest: updated.00:07
stefgandresmh: it's in the time/date control applet00:07
moymoyGammaX: what's the core temp of your card?00:07
Mxfunkyhat:it just stopped00:07
linuxguy2009GammaX:  Yeah thats what they do. You can use whatever drivers you want and the card still eats the same power and puts out the same heat.00:07
MxI didn't update anything00:07
rootlinuxusrFirst link under Desktop CD00:08
linuxguy2009GammaX: Buy a lappy cooler thats about as good as it gets.00:08
funkyHatMx: does it work if you reboot?00:08
FloridaGuystefg, users-admin...has me..my user and root00:08
Mxno it does not00:08
Balkfor all00:08
MxI dual boot with windows and my sound card works just fine00:08
yommth0r : that reason imho is the same as there were  so many tutorials on how to build your nvidia driver ( in the old days  I mean :)  ) or anything else that requires a bit of tweaking and doesnt work 100% out of the box00:09
stefgFloridaGuy: then check /etc/sudoers if the admin group has sudo privileges. I don't know if that's the default if you choose to run a root account00:09
Mxfunkyhat:are u there?00:09
jeanrussouDr_Willis: it was my /etc/inputrc settings00:09
linuxguy2009Mx: What version of Ubuntu?00:10
th0ryomm: well....I don't subscribe to the 'one install does everything' philosophy. If I want a sound server I will install a sound server. My sound system should play sound on my computer...end of story.00:10
andresmhstefg, really? Where exactly? This is all I see http://img413.imageshack.us/img413/7541/screenshot1nkf.png00:10
yommth0r : that's exactly my point :)00:10
Mxlinuxguy:did u get that?00:10
linuxguy2009Mx: Does the sound work in a live CD boot?00:11
Mxyes it does,isn't that funny00:11
funkyHath4f1: who owns the process?00:11
stefgandresmh: not that one... in system> admin > time & date00:11
funkyHath4f1: also what is the output of the "groups" command?00:11
linuxguy2009Mx: You might have a buggy update installed. I would recomend maybe trying the LTS release cause its had more fixes and patches etc.00:11
Mxhow do I do that?00:12
neohashineed help with x11 error: screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration... yeah upgrade to nvidia 185.18.14 (via installer) killed acceleration.. running low graphivs mode at this moment.00:12

mechtech_nyother than gtk-gnutella?00:18
ctmjrneohashi: did you uninstall it first before installing the new driver if not you need to uninstall everything and reinstall00:18
Mxlinuxguy:so u mean that the 8.04 is more stable than 9.0400:18
mohdbut when write ./configure or make it say error00:18
GammaXlinuxguy2009, a preconfigured OS has drivers wich set voltages... hardware doesnt control that.00:18
yommlinuxguy : that could very well be OS specific00:18
th0rmechtech_ny: did you try gtk-gnutella, limewire, azureus00:18
linuxguy2009Mx: 8.04.3 has had probably about 300+ updates integrated since 8.04 release. So yes.00:18
Gnealinuxguy2009: actually, your OS can determine how hot your hardware gets00:18
mechtech_nyGammaX: also often BIOS settings can control voltage00:18

johh4f1: But I can't do anything as long as my primary hard drive is mounted00:38
travlingeekother then the net download can i install app from a cd what are the step by step if its possible00:39
Lostinspace_46I guess I just mean session.00:39
h4f1joh: shouldn't be mounted to rescue ?00:39
johh4f1: No, you00:39
Maira_LRBIs there someone already used wubi?00:39

MxI am downloading for installation to solve a sound problem in 9.04. pls is there nothing else I can do get sound in 9.0400:40
johh4f1: I think it believes that /dev/sda1 is the usb stick00:40
h4f1joh: what exactly you want to rescue ?00:40
johh4f1: My primary hard-drive00:40
johh4f1: I need to run an fsck on it00:40

johh4f1: And I'm unable to mount it00:41
coleysjoh: sudo umount /dev/sda#00:41
stefgjoh: your bios might swap drives around to enable booting from usb... run sudo fdisk -l or cat /proc/partitions and see if your harddrive is on sdb now00:41
h4f1 joh: do you have gparted in live cd ? if so run it. there should be an option to umount00:41

trollboyGnea, I don't believe its blacklisted,  how do I check?00:43
coleysjoh: Go into live cd, and do it. =o00:43
johstefg: /dev/sda1 on /cdrom type ext4 (ro,noatime,barrier=1,data=ordered)00:43
stefghelp`: should not... it'S a waring that everyone can read or modify your pppoe login, but it should still work00:44
johcoleys: I *am* in a live cd, you don't understand my problem.00:44
coleysjoh: Then you should be clear!00:44
Gneatrollboy: what I'm wondering, is if there's another module that's being blacklisted that it needs - usually in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist00:44
Lostinspace_46Is it considered bad form to autopost a question every 1/2 hour.  So that if someone has any advice they can leave a message?00:44
monkey2coleys: lsyncd is using rsync with inotify (but I run into issues when propogating changes bidirectionally)00:44

Firefisheth0r: I see.  Well, this is a laptop, so what I'm wanting to do is have multiple xsession open.  Now, to have them in a virtual gui-terminal on a common desktop--say, one terminal running xfce and another fluxbox, etc.--would be ideal.01:23
kn100_boss_mc, any ideas?01:23
cooper77zI just want to kill gnome for this session only and run cinelerra from the command line01:23
Firefisheth0r: spelling correction:  multiple xsessions open01:23
boss_mckn100_: does he have these problems with compiz switched off?01:23
th0rFirefishe: you might also consider installing VirtualBox and running separate installs....you could run suse, winxp and redhat all in windows on ubuntu01:24
kn100_erm let me tell him to turn it off01:24
kn100_disabling the effects from 'change my desktop wallpaper' will disable compiz right01:24

cooper77zjust for this session01:24
FlaxiWhat can I do?01:24
boss_mckn100_: I assume he's using jaunty01:25
Firefisheth0r: I have virtualbox installed--currently using it to run the new Palm WebOS sdk and emulator, along with Eclipse for program development--niiiice ;)01:25
kn100_boss_mc, course01:25
boss_mckn100_: does he have these problems with compiz switched off?01:26
th0rFirefishe: yeah...I love it. For what you are trying to do you are probably best to try running several X sessions. vnc I think you will find too slow to respond01:26
kn100_boss_mc, i am telling him to turn compiz off now01:26
Firefisheth0r: I also have various ubuntu, kubuntu, SuSE, etc.  I'd probably install open solaris if I ran any virtual machine at all.01:26
Firefisheth0r: I follow01:26
Firefisheth0r: Thanks :)01:26
th0rFirefishe: I have solaris installed...but it is terribly slow01:26

cooper77zhow then should I start cinelerra from command line withought gnome?01:30
FirefisheDrknezz: Had a compositing issue with kde4 (4.2.4 in my case) giving me an error saying compositing was too slow.  When it gets this testy, I just reboot in recovery mode, do a nice little fsck from the recovery mode ncurses screen, and boot from there.  Works nice that way at times ;)01:30
Firefisheoh, he's gone...pish posh01:30
Flaxiarand: Then setup (hd1)?01:30
kn100_boss_mc, the flickering apparently occurs every now and then, about every 5 or 10 seconds, just a quick flash of horisontal white noise, i have got him to disable compiz, and he is testing now01:31
arandFlaxi: I guess so, if you aim to install to mbr of sdb01:31
cooper77zdrknezz, how much ram does gnome use up?01:31
crazy2kDoes someone use wmii2? What is your "mod" key? xmodmap says "mod1        Alt_L (0x40),  Alt_R (0x6c),  Meta_L (0xcd)" but I tried with both left and right alt keys and none worked when doing Mod-T.01:31

FirefisheOn the subject of turning off compositing with alt-shift-f12 in kde4, will another, subsequent application of alt-shift-f12 turn compositing back on?01:32
boss_mckn100_: unfortunately ati dropped support for those cards a few months (and one ubuntu version) back01:32
boss_mckn100_: what does he need it for?01:33

boss_mckn100_: metacity can do compositing01:33
kn100_avant window manager01:33
boss_mckn100_: but it's not great...01:33
kn100_boss_mc, erm how do i enable it?01:33
arandFlaxi: hum, I SuperGrubDisk can do that nicely I think, and there is tools on SystemRescueCD for changing your windows password...01:33
boss_mckn100_: open gconf-editor01:34
boss_mckn100_: go to Apps->metacity->general01:34
boss_mckn100_: check the compositing_manager box01:34
Firefisheboss_mc: My P4 desktop of about 5 years ago has an AGP 256MB video card.  I tried using the Jaunty live-cd but it didn't have the ATI fglrx driver for it, so I just stuck with 8.10.  Working fine :)01:34
boss_mckn100_: test away...01:34
kn100_boss_mc, thanks for all your help01:34
boss_mcFirefishe: like I said, they dropped support one ubuntu version ago, they all work fine in 8.10 (well, using version 9.3 which is ok)01:35

Firefisheboss_mc: Are you saying that ATI dropped the support?01:36
vijayhello everyone,i just upgraded my machine from 8.04 to 9.04 and my wireless stopped working now,asking for wpa password again and again,anyone know whats the issue01:36
Firefisheboss_mc: Or ubuntu?01:36
storm-zenDr_Willis: Surely you don't think I'm making that distinction.01:36
Dr_Willisstorm-zen:  ive seen stranger things.. Ive had sound cards not work in Linux.. UNLESS i power off and boot straight to linux.. if i booted to windows and 'soft' rebooted to linux = no sound.01:36
Pizlozconsidering VideoRam does nothing in xorg.conf now. how can i increase the VRAM from 256 to 512 (the original windows i replaced on this machine had 512) when there are no bios options to change it?01:37
powerUserbudif theres a difference between a desk and workspace01:37
boss_mcFirefishe: ati have stopped developing drivers for 'old' cards, and the last driver they made runs on Xorg 1.4 but Jaunty uses 1.6 so no compatibility...01:37
Flaxiarand: Which would you recommend to fix this, changing my Windows password or fixing GRUB?01:37
storm-zenDr_Willis: Yes, that is a bit stranger. :p01:37
kn100_boss_mc, o lord01:37
boss_mcFirefishe: so it's ATI's fault and ubuntu had to drop it to develop01:37
Firefisheboss_mc: I see.  Well, I'm glad my laptop uses nvidia ;)01:37
Dr_WillispowerUserbud:  you can have several virtual 'workspaces' I guess you can say. the current one you are seeing is your current desktop.01:37
kn100_well disabling compiz seems to have fixed it01:37
kn100_nvidia (o)01:38
Dr_Willisstorm-zen:  yep. "plug and play' getting set oddly and not resetting.01:38
boss_mcFirefishe: indeed, I even bought a new card when that happened so I could use jaunty (which is btw, SEXY)01:38
storm-zenIt just bugs me that i've tried to solve this one problem more times that I even cared to count.01:38
boss_mckn100_: has he got compositing working?01:39
Dr_Willisstorm-zen:  this is a laptop or desktop box?01:39
storm-zenI guess I haven't tried to solve it in Jaunty yet, though.01:39

Firefisheboss_mc: I've got Jaunty on the brain, boss ;-).  Works beautifully on my Asus G50Vt-X1. The usual 4 gigs (of which I think it sees only 3 for some reason), and the nvidia 9800 GS chipset 512mb vram.  not bad at all.01:39
Dr_Willisstorm-zen:   I suppose you dont want me to point out that you can get an ok Creative sound card for $30 ? :)01:39
boss_mckn100_: he might find he get's the same problems... but metacity is much much lighter than compiz so he may have luck01:39
LLStarkswhat is multilib?01:39
powerUserbudYesterday I was going through my workspaces but then I moved to a desk and everything except for my background dissapeared01:39
storm-zenDr_Willis: No, as I've already bought a Turtle Beach one, for the same reason?01:40
Dr_Willisstorm-zen:  so BOTH sound cards have the same issue?01:40
boss_mcFirefishe: 512Mb of your addressable memory space is going to your graphics card, and the rest to the kernel01:40
kn100_in the current linux kernel, is there a way to disable gui booting and have it display the text boot?01:40
boss_mcFirefishe: if you had 64bit you'd get your whole 4Gb01:40
Flaxiarand: The problem is, I had Debian installed on a partition and when I'd finished with it I formatted the partition to NTFS but now I can't boot because I get GRUB error 17 and when I try to use the Windows recovery console it asks for my password so I can't use "fdisk /mbr"01:40
boss_mckn100_: the recovery console?01:40
arandkn100_: edit fstab, remove quiet and splash01:40
storm-zenDr_Willis: It would seem so.  Though I haven't checked the (unsupported, although it looks like it is supported) soundchip since I got the card.01:40
kn100_arand, this is on a linux based phone01:41
Firefisheboss_mc: Aha!  So that's the culprit.  64 bit has it's own issues, too, I guess, being still so experimental, at least in linux (or am I blowing wind with this assumption?)01:41
powerUserbudCan flash 10 be installed on a 64 bit system01:41
kn100_i have the kernel source code which i can (and have) compiled and flashed to the phone01:41
kn100_is there a way in the terminal01:41
kn100_i can get a terminal from the phone01:41
superdaniel49powerUserbud: probably so01:41
musikgoat|mainkn100_: usually you can boot to init 3 or another init to stop x from starting01:42
arandkn100_: oh... well you'd still need to edit the kernel boot parameters somehow...01:42
Firefisheboss_mc: Either way, I'd have to do a complete re-install, and I have *so much installed and configured already*, it'd be a shame to lose it all again.01:42
boss_mcFirefishe: it's been around a while, the big issue is drivers, they all need to be adapted for 64bit, most have been but some are still not done01:42
Dr_WillispowerUserbud:  I got flash 10 going on this 64bit system01:42
boss_mcFirefishe: that's always the way... *sadface*01:42
Firefisheboss_mc: Tell me this:  Does nvidia have a proprietary driver for 64 bit ubuntu jaunty?01:42
powerUserbudDId you get it from The Adobe sit. it said I had the wrong architecture01:42
superdaniel49Dr_Willis: do u know how to change the screen saver on Xubuntu 9.04?01:43
storm-zensuperdaniel49: The screensaver, or the screensaver program?01:43
boss_mcFirefishe: I believe so, although the nvidia drivers are frowned on :) (they replace large swathes of the linux graphics system with their own, less efficient system)01:43
kn100_ok i can edit the boot perams01:43

superdaniel49storm-zen: the screen saver, u know like the thing that comes after a certain time of not doing anything01:44
storm-zen( I guess I'll just try rebooting until it works again.  Who knows?  Maybe it's electrical... )01:44
arandFlaxi: Ok, if you don't plan on using grub anymore, I'd say go with reinstalling ntldr using supergrubdisk, that is a fairly easy process from what I remember.01:44
musikgoat|mainFirefishe: suprisingly so01:44
Firefishemusikgoat|main: propritary or open source?01:44

Firefisheboss_mc: Using a usb pen is a good way to test a lot of things.  The only pen I have that is working, however, is one with an old install of Slax on it. ;).  I did for experimental reasons.  I have to work with the pens more to get them to work.  My earlier attempts proved fruitless.01:53
cooper77zif i type in /etc/init.d/gdm stop then terminal says ok does that mean gnome stopped even though I still have gui???01:53
superdaniel49spycode: that's why I upgraded to Xubuntu. The Windows 98 partition was already messed up01:53
Firefisheboss_mc: The newer pen-editions, though, may work better.01:53
arandFlaxi: seems like the main page for that one is down currently, but http://freshmeat.net/projects/supergrub/ seems to have some mirror download links01:53

cooper77zsuperdaniel49, if I stop gnome but I can still windows and background does that mean gnome stopped using ram?01:57
krayonHi.  I am looking to be able to access more than ~3gb on an ubuntu 8.10 system (32bit).  I hear I can install the server version of the linux kernel but can't find any linux-image-x.x.xx-x-server package.  Can it be installed (and used) easily?01:58
superdaniel49Usually if ur on a dual boot with 2 os by each other. It hasn't stoped using RAM01:58
cooper77zI am just using 8.04.2, but when I stop gnome, I can still use the windows01:58
Scunizikrayon: if you're referring to more than 3gigs of ram the server package or kernel won't help you.. 64 bit is the only way to get more access to ram... ON ANY OS.. not just ubuntu01:59

superdaniel49cooper77z:do u have Gnome on a partition not used by windows?02:01
test34Scunizi: use it as swap partition, then it's almost like real RAM ?02:01
mattgyverjocefus, its a known bug02:01
cooper77zI am only running ubuntu linx superdaniel4902:01
krayonScunizi: What about bigmem?02:01
Scunizitest34: naw... you should already have a swap.. 2 is redundant and not used much anyway02:02
test34Scunizi: it could be your only swap partition02:02
Scunizikrayon: I don't know anything about bigmem.....02:02

ubottuTiM: 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. :-)02:02
krayonScunizi: My understanding is you can use BIGMEM to enable support for >3gb in the linux kernel.02:03
superdaniel49cooper77z: so ur don't have dual boot. Where when the computer starts it gives u a choice of booting into Windows or ubuntu?02:03
test34Scunizi: maybe but it isnt impossible02:03
mattgyverjocefus, see my pm02:03
Scunizikrayon: you should google it and see what it actually does.. does it give seemless access to that extra ram? or does it set that extra amount up as something else? partition, swap, whatever?02:03
Scunizitest34: my point exactly02:04
TiMi installed my sound card, but now i'm having no sound on firefox02:04
cooper77zsuperdaniel49, I reformatted and lost all microsoft influences02:04

krayonScunizi: Well, I run ArchLinux and according to some forum posts on the bbs the bigmem makes stuff slower :( Having said that, the request was still made to me to put it on a system for testing.02:05
Scunizikrayon: great.. follow that.. you should also ask youself.. do I actually use the 3 gigs recognized now or is most of it left dormant?.. you may be chasing windmills.02:05
yoyonedkrayon: I use 64 bit on arch everyday there is no reason not to use it02:06

toogreenhi there, something really strange is happening with Apache under 9.04: when i setup my site under default port 80, all works fine. If I change the port, apache seems to still be running but my site is unavailable. Any ideas anyone?02:51
jetit MIGHT be my only option?02:52
H_M-LaptopWelp.. I guess it can't be TOOOOO bad to just simply start over with a new gnome config....02:52
cooper77zmaybe ??? dynex works fine for me :)02:52

toogreenrichardcavell, a "Not Found" error03:02
sabayonuserbazhang: read up. i missed to type your name.03:02
toogreenrichardcavell, so Apache is running indeed and responding, just doesn't load the content03:02
toogreenrichardcavell, cuz at the bottom of the error page i see the server info: Apache/2.2.11 (Ubuntu) PHP/5.2.6-3ubuntu4.1 with Suhosin-Patch Server at "removed" Port 9903:03
toogreenrichardcavell, and then if i go back and change /etc/apache2/ports.conf to port 80, restart apache, same page same content loads fine. I don't get it!03:04

jrs5fgwell grub is installed...03:15
jrs5fgstage1 just isn't where it should be03:16
cooper77zwill that free up ram for cinelerra, lstarnes?03:16

bazhangLinuxGold, are you trying to install using the alternate iso by using aptoncd? or adding the cd as a repo to do that?04:24
bastidrazorCShadowRun, gconf-editor is a powerful tool, in the future you could dig around there too.. apps/panel holds all the configurations for the gnome-panel04:25
ubottuTo reset the panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »04:25
LinuxGoldill try that one04:25
LinuxGoldbazhang: I haven't tried aptoncd...04:25
CShadowRunbastidrazor, it was the applet that did it in the end, anyway :)04:25
LinuxGoldI'm too used with untar, make make install, blah..04:25
bazhangLinuxGold, is that your goal?04:25
bastidrazorCShadowRun, yeah, my thinking was the applet was causing errors whent he panel wasn't there.. the indicator applet is on a time delayed start04:26

strykercwillu: how do i change that setting?06:39
coz_MikeL,  and unless openbox has a compositor onboard  you will have to use fake transperancy with cairo-dock06:40
cwillustryker, go to about:config in the browser, and find the relevant string, or add it (new -> integer) if its not there06:40
MikeLcoz_: xcompmgr06:40
mechtechgaryson: you just type it in before your command, then it will ask for your password, you type that in (you will see no output when typing in your password) hit enter and the command should work06:40
coz_MikeL,  right that is because of the extra gnome dependecies it would require06:40

losherbullgard4: it's apparently a filesystem access user ID. On certain systems, just knowing this is enough to allow access to files, including possibly those you normally wouldn't have permission to access. Don't ask me for details, because I don't know of them. I just recall there being an issue with nfs at one time because file system handles weren't sufficiently random and hence could be...06:55

bullgard4losher: Thank you for commenting. I guess I got your main point. But could you please tell me what a filesystem access user ID is? The output column 'FUSER' lists entries such as 'root', 'daemon', 'syslog'. I believe that 'root', 'daemon', 'syslog' are no filesystems. A filesystem may be ext3, ext4, fat32. Please resolve my misunderstanding.07:03

Didn't work08:17
Cyber_Akumaopensuse can't read that yet08:17
lgcmarkmq, weird thing is, though, that your browsing experience is so much worse in Linux than it is in Windoze. It's contrary to my own experience.08:17

And I do it all the time, concurrently with several other apps. Heck, I even watch por*otube on Firefox with my processor at 100% without problems!08:22
Bob_Dolemarkmq, if it slows down too much I'd just fire-up the windows version of firefox under WINE (using 1.1.23, not 1.0.1, or later than 1.1.23) and it'd be fast. infact, I have the windows version running right now and on a few flash based sites. it isn't slowing down or crashing.08:23

JonathanEllisI have twin monitors running at 1280 x 1024 using Xinerama on a Matrox G200 twin output graphics card. Every time I boot, the second screen comes up at a lower resolution. When I restart X by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Backspace the second screen goes to the correct resolution of 1280 x 1024. I dont understand why this is happening. My xorg.conf is at http://pastebin.com/f2624ef8b09:09
ubottugparted is a !GTK/!Gnome !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php09:09
lokpestchalcedny: sure I could do that, that doesnt mean haveing that ! is suboptimal/wrong09:10
Cyber_AkumaI thought gparted came installed on the ubuntu/xubuntu livecds?09:10
Cyber_Akumaat least it did on mine09:10
JonathanEllisxshadowx: Are you dual booting with windows?09:10
xshadowxNo, long story short, I uninstalled Kubuntu after grub error 22 appeared and now I have grub error 17 and I need to at least get back in to Vista. I don't have any blank CDs and my CD burner decided to not work..so, I'm kind of stuck. I tried using a USB boot up, but that failed. So I need to figure out how to use this ms-sys program to fix vistas mbr problem.09:10
hyperionx11xshadowx, win98 boot cd available online will install a mbr that vista repair notices and repairs09:10
eric785thats harder09:10
Cyber_AkumaI don't suppose there is a #windows channel on this server btw?09:10
xshadowxI dual booted with Vista and kubuntu. Or tried to at least.(sorry left that out)09:11
lokpestCyber_Akuma: ##windows :)09:11
Cyber_Akumaxshadowx: which did you install first?09:11
Cyber_Akumaor are you running one in a virtual machine09:11
xshadowxI had Vista installed first.09:11
lokpestand it was linked from #windows aparently...09:11
Cyber_AkumaI had no problems evne quad booting when I installed vista first09:11
JonathanEllisxshadowx: You might find Super Grub Disk would sort it out for you09:11
james_reinstall ubuntu and replace vista :P09:12
Cyber_Akumawhy do some channels have ## instead of #?09:12
xshadowxThat's what I had on the USB stick. It wouldn't boot from it...and it wouldn't even show up in BIOS09:12
james_you are on the live cd, right?09:12
james_hit the install icon :P09:12
JonathanEllisjames_: If he installs Vista after Ubuntu that would remove the Grub entry from the MBR09:13
james_i didn't say to install vista afterwards :)09:13
JonathanEllisxshadowx: Maybe your computer wont boot from a USB stick. Mine wont09:13
xshadowxWhat's the other option then? I tried this, but I'm stupid and can't seem to get the terminal commands right to configure it... http://ms-sys.sourceforge.net/09:14
JonathanEllisxshadowx: You might find that PartedMagic with Grub4dos might sort your problem09:14
james_xshadowx, if your computer has recovery mode for windows then maybe you can reinstall vista from there and get rid of ubuntu altogether09:14
james_you can always install ubuntu later09:14
Cyber_AkumaYeah, if you have no files you care to backup, id recommend that route, it woudl be the easiest and least messy09:15
james_JonathanD, there are guides to install vista after ubuntu09:15
xshadowxWell, I don't have ubuntu or kubuntu on either of my hard drives right now. I think on accident, when I installed kubuntu, it installed grub on my vista partition.09:15
pozicIs it possible to setup VPN only for certain applications?09:15
Cyber_Akumait should have installed it in the boot sector and on the kubuntu partition09:15
pozic(instead of running everything through the VPN?)09:16
Cyber_Akumathe stage 1.5 files on the kubuntu partition I mean09:16
JonathanEllisxshadowx: Does your Vista installation still have lots of applications in it? I ask because I find installing Windows apps a pain in the arse so you might want to keep your Vista intact and repair it rather than a comlete reinstall09:16
xshadowxI have A LOT of applications(more than I need) but I use it for music and other school stuff.09:17
JonathanEllisxshadowx: In that case you might not want to do a complete reinstall of Vista. Are you currently on the machine in question? How are you using it now?09:17
xshadowxYes, I am on it right now. I have booted up using ubuntu's live CD09:18
Cyber_AkumaDo you have the installers for all your aplications?09:18
Cyber_Akumaeither on disk or on our windows partition?09:18
JonathanEllisxshadowx: Can you give me a list of the partitions you have on your machine so I can get an idea what is what? You can see the partitions by running gparted09:18
JonathanEllisCyber_Akuma: If he has a lot of applications, it would take a long time to reinstall them all. Plus a fresh Vista install takes ages too.09:20
xshadowxI have /dev/sda1 (vista) and /dev/sdb1 (NTFS and nothing else on it)09:20
JonathanEllisxshadowx: So your vista is in place on sda1. sdb1 is a blank partition formatted as NTFS? What is that partition for?09:21
xshadowxSdb1 use to have Kubuntu on it. I uninstalled it and reformatted it back to NTFS hoping that it would fix everything.09:22
BePhantom_hi all, could anyone help me to disable the GDM? i have intrepid installed in my hard disk and i cannot access the terminal, i want to disable the gdm using my live cd so that i can start my intrepid and fix the problem09:22
BePhantom_is there something in /etc/gdm i can tweak to disable it_09:23
AdvoWorkHas anyone here ever heard of or come across programs running in ubuntu causing a monitor squeal? Turning monitor off, it goes. So i assume it was the monitor but now, ive just tested: if i load a terminal, it gets worse, close it,it goes away..09:24
JonathanEllisxshadowx: OK. I think I know what your problem might be. When you installed Ubuntu it replaces the code in the Master Boot Record to run Grub. Now that the partition that Grub was installed in is not there, it doesnt know what to do. I suggest the easiest way to proceed is to reinstall Ubuntu on your empty partition. It will replace the MBR code to run Grub. It should detect your Vista installation and put Vista as an entry in your boot menu in Gru09:25
JonathanEllisxshadowx: How much experience do you have with setting up partitions for Ubuntu?09:25
th0rxshadowx: don't do that...just fix the mbr to boot vista again09:25
xshadowxI did it before with Fedora.09:26
xshadowxbut that's about it.09:26
UnholyLessonswhats the command to edit a file like /etc/apt/sources.list in ubuntu09:26
JonathanEllisxshadowx: I mean, do you have a preferred partitioning scheme or do you prefer to let Ubuntu's installer decide how to partition?09:26
JonathanEllisUnholyLessons: sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list09:26
xshadowxI usually let the installer decide but make sure it's not messing with my hard drive with Vista on it. I think there is something I did wrong during the install of Kubuntu...at the end of the installation there was an option for "advanced settings" in there I should've looked because I'm pretty sure it installed grub on my first hard drive(the one with vista) rather than the one with kubuntu on it.09:27
aaaaa[^^]hi, i just set my audio to pulseaudio and used this link https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PulseAudio , but it doesnt work .. any sugestions ?09:28
JonathanEllisxshadowx: I forgot to ask. What do you want to achieve here? Do you want both Ubuntu and Vista or just one of them?09:28
UnholyLessonshow do you update apt in ubuntu09:29
xshadowxI wanted to successfully dual boot Vista and Ubuntu(or Kubuntu) so I can learn how to use Ubuntu/Kubuntu properly and still have Vista as my every day thing (for gaming and so forth).09:29
xshadowxI am quite interested in linux and some of my colleagues told me to try Ubuntu instead of Fedora.09:30
JonathanEllisxshadowx: I doubt it would have installed grub on your first hard disk. By default it places grub in /boot/grub which will be on your Ubuntu partition unless you setup a dedicated partition for boot or grub which it sounds like you didnt do.09:30
syntaxUbuntu is tight shadow09:30
wizzo50How do you setup Weechat on here09:31
tavia software for controling the fan?09:31
xshadowxPossibly, but there is a random 1mb unallocated space partition in my HD with Vista...I'm not sure what that is and I only found that after uninstalling Kubuntu09:32
masteronanyone here who knows something about xchat? ^^09:32
masteronhello :)09:33
JonathanEllisxshadowx: I would agree with your colleagues. What the Ubuntu installer has done is to replace the MBR code on your vista partition to run Grub instead of ntldr (the windows loader). Grub then gives you the choice of chain loading windows or loading ubuntu. That small partition is probably a rescue partition put there when you manufacturer first formatted your hard disk09:33
wizzo50_How do you setup WeeChat on GUI09:33
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about xchat09:33

UnholyLessonshow do you apt update in terminal of ubuntu09:33
masteroni need to know how to automaticly connect to my bnc on startup09:33
xshadowxSo what should I do then? Fix mbr and get rid of grub? Or reinstall Ubuntu and grub then add Vista to the loader? I think I've tried doing that once and I received another Grub error 22..09:34

wizzo50_How do you?09:36
UnholyLessonsoh i got an error and fixed it :)09:36
pozicwizzo50_: stop talking to me in private.09:37
pozicwizzo50_: if it is in the repositories, you just install it and read the Ubuntu documentation in /usr/share/doc/09:37
pozicwizzo50_: otherwise, you just read the README file distributed in the source distribution.09:37
JonathanEllisxshadowx: Its up to you. If you know how to fix the MBR to just run windows and you dont want Ubuntu then you could do that. I dont remember how to do that - you would probably boot from your Vista CD and get it to repair your Windows installation. Personally, I would delete your NTFS partition on your second hard disk (the blank one) and then install Ubuntu. If you do it from the Live CD I can talk you through it if you like09:38
UnholyLessonsdoes anyone know any REALLY good repositories09:38
pozicwizzo50_: if there also is no README file, you read the source or use another program or you write your own program.09:38
wizzo50_pozic: I don't understand it09:38
UnholyLessonsWhats the name of that little app that monitors system performance and temperature?09:38
lillisUnholyLessons: conky ?09:38
Dayofswordssystem monitor?09:38
JonathanEllisxshadowx: You should then have a working dual boot system with Grub giving you the choice of whether to run windows or linux09:38
pozicwizzo50_: these instructions are easy to understand for someone who knows something about Linux. Read a book first if you do not understand. I read books on how to use a computer too. Nothing to be ashamed of.09:39

pozicjdredwind: it is just not Windows, because you can actually use your machine as something else than a toy.09:51
xshadowxJonathanEllis: I'm not familiar with IRC, I'm sorry. But anyway, its a yes to choosing sdb1 and a yes to the installer asking which hard disk to use when using the entire disk09:52

pozicjdredwind: if that really is the case I don't mind helping you.09:53
rdsnet_slatinaonats: y see09:54
pozicjdredwind: just start a terminal and then type in tf09:55
JonathanEllisxshadowx: No problem about the IRC etiquette: none of us was born knowing everything. So if you have the chance to install Ubuntu using the whole of sdb1 I would go for that, unless you have a particular partitioning scheme in mind. You can always change it later anyway, though its harder. Is there a separate option for guided partitioning? That might give some suggestions and choices09:55
pozicjdredwind: then you get some command interface where you can do /help09:55
jdredwindpozic: I don't mind you helping me either, but don't assume i'm lazy.  Before I decided to come into the channel I spent 45 minutes trying to run this program myself, until finally I decided to ask for help.  I wasn't looking for a hand hold. Just an arrow in the right direction.09:55
pozicjdredwind: you should be able to read English and go on from there by yourself.09:55
pozicjdredwind: if you spent that amount of time, I suggest you read a book on Linux in 3 hours.09:55
xshadowxJonathanEllis: Yes, there is a separate option. It says "Specify Partitions Manually (advanced)". It lets me choose the /root and other options.09:56

JonathanEllisxshadowx: The first time I installed Ubuntu I just took the default options. I think I used the whole hard disk. Now, though I have my own partitioning scheme as I have experimented with various versions of Ubuntu10:03
ActionParsnipjason__: you can also use it for other stuff, like dmesg if you want to read it all10:03
ActionParsnipjason__: dmesg | less10:03
JonathanEllisxshadowx: That sounds fine to me. The bootloader on HD0 will install some code in the Master Boot Record of HD0 to run Grub on HD1. Then Grub will give you the option of running either Ubuntu or Windows10:04

JonathanEllisxshadowx: We can deal with Grub errors later. To explain what is going on, when your machine boots, the BIOS looks at the Master Boot Record of the first hard disk (on some BIOSs you can choose which hard disk to boot from but most will use the first hard disk by default). The Master Boot Record then tells the machine which partition to boot from. So you will set the Master Boot Record of your first hard disk to load Grub which will be in a partiti10:10

petervaand I know it's possible to make a raid6 array in mdadm, but I was asking if it was possible from the installer :)10:22
ActionParsnippeterva: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mdadm states:  mdadm is a Linux utility by Neil Brown that is used to manage software RAID devices, previously known as mdctl. Besides managing, it can create, delete, or monitor Linux software RAIDs10:22
ActionParsnippeterva: the wiki shows some commands that may help10:22
ActionParsnippeterva: the raid you are configuring is the fake raid in the bios which may give you issues. If you get a raid card, the raid management will be managed in the card and the OS will only see the disk/s shown to it by the raid controller10:24

ActionParsnipRuby: if you are dual booting on any technology with ubuntu, grub simply doesnt care, the kernel give it hardware support so it could be a scsi drive, 3 SATA and a PATA and all wil be bootable by grub11:10
RubyGive me a second11:11
ActionParsnipRuby: provided you have driver modules for each so they are readable 9the default install has modules for the vast majority of onboard controllers11:11
