teadictbucky: I'll give it a check00:02
asteroidmaster_, wine provide a "windows environement" in your linux. Vbox (and qemu, kvm, vmware, xen, ...) provides you a _complete_ virtual machine (hardrive, dcrom, net, display, ...)00:02
master_vbox is for windows7 example00:02
quantumkey rndc.key;00:03
master_i dont want a vbox i use linux00:03
master_thanks though hybrid00:03
teadictbucky: Oh lawd.. Hehe.. Not links the application for text-based web browsing.. Just links.. As in make a link to an executable file and make it Run by default (I want to avoid that pop-up question: [Run in terminal] [Edit] [Cancel] [Run])00:03
master_Do we have to wait for wine to configure cs3 adobe00:04

natrixnatrix89Hi. Which software do you use for screen capture? (making videos)00:04
zagabar1Hi! I need a way to automatically upload a file that appears in a directory to my ubuntu server in a specified folder. It is from a windows environment. Do you know a way to do this? It should delete the file after it has uploaded it also.00:04
asteroidzagabar1, upload where ?00:05
buckyteadict, is the file executable?00:05
zagabar1asteroid: From my windows computer to my ubuntu server.00:05
FirstSgthey, whats that movie with the "couples theapy" on a remote island00:05
master_haa i see what vbox can do so how do i configure#00:05
mar-sarawhy would "df" be showing an out of date values?00:05
asteroidzagabar1, ssh ? ftp ? sftp ? rsync ?00:05
teadictbucky: Yes.. I've never known when Ubuntu asks for the action...00:05
yoniHi all, I'm writing a monitor script for my network traffic.00:06
zagabar1asteroid: ftp would be great, but any would do.00:06
mar-sarai just resized my LV but itsnt showing like that on "df" output00:06
FirstSgtdoes anyone remember that movie, its coming our or just came out...00:06
=== ubuntu is now known as eena
yoniWhile getting values from /proc/net/dev does the counters there as well on 4G are resetting?00:06
buckyteadict, how are you running it? by clicking on it?00:06
asteroidzagabar1 this is your choice : if you have an ftp server running on ubuntu, get a ftp client like ncftp (which is provided with ncftpput) helping you upload the file in one liner00:07
teadictbucky: Made the executable file, and made a link, normal procedure. Double clicking pops up the question00:07
mar-sarahow can i make a backup of my current X and video setup, so I can go back to it, in case the Driver manager screws my vide ?00:07
buckyteadict, did you make a launcher on the desktop? and that's what your clicking?00:08
teadictbucky: Yeap00:08
master_on vbox do i need to install windows?00:08
zagabar1asteroid: But it is uploading from a windows environment.00:08
asteroidzagabar1, just find a client which can do it00:08
buckyteadict, you made a link with ln -s ?00:08
HydridYES you need00:08
FirstSgtCouples Retreat!!00:09
asteroidor4n_, run your ftp server on windows zagabar1 and use ncftpget to GET the file from windows00:09
teadictbucky: No, graphically interfacing00:09
buckyteadict, with a path directly to the exectuable?00:09
buckyfrom the launcer00:09
zagabar1asteroid: Okay. Thanks fo the advices, I will look at them.00:09
teadictbucky: Yes..00:10
danbhfive1mar-sara: I think the best you can do is to backup xorg.conf00:10
mar-saradanbhfive1: but ubuntu doesnt use it any more ? am i right00:10
natrixnatrix89guys.. Is there a way to do screen capture and save a video in ubuntu? There is one software in the packages list, but the quality of the video is very poor..00:10
natrixnatrix89i mean to capture screen.00:11
danbhfive1mar-sara: well, that's still the only place that anything is hard configured.  If it isn't in xorg.conf, it is autoconfigured00:11
asteroidwell, if someone from staff see that, "we need virt-manager-0.8.0 please"  :)00:11

ubottuSirmimer: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/9.04/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.00:42

MaGicMaX1 guys, i was wondering if there was a way to relay my mics sound input into my speakers, so i could hear myself talk?00:44
ShasiraxHe runs Vista...00:44
geniiBigshot_: If you downloaded a .deb package, apt-get isn't the tool. dpkg is00:44
GneaSirmimer: well, you'd need to make sure the windows pc is setup correctly to accept the smb connections like that. samba can help by makin the ubuntu pc accessible to the windows pc.00:44
MindVirusShasirax: Pidgin is for all major operating systems. :) If he uses IM without Pidgin then he is missing out.00:44
Bigshot_genii: how can i install the dependencies?00:44

GneaSirmimer: is the windows pc part of a domain or is it a home edition?00:45
ntemisMindVirus: i can00:45
ntemisbut the one selected is the correct00:45
MindVirusShasirax: It is of no consequence. We need a place where you can talk without being disconnected on reboot.00:45
geniiBigshot_: Usually there will be a readme or similar. Find out what the deps are and install them separately00:45
MindVirusntemis: you'd be surprised.00:45

Bigshot_genii: you there bud what should i do?00:48
MindVirusShasirax: you're next.00:48
geniiBigshot_: tar.gz is not a package. It's usually source code00:48
joakoMindVirus: What I need is an install disc that has ssh, ldap/nsswitch/pam packages,  certain username/password already created, and enabled by default ssh service and ldap logins00:48

MindVirusDon't we all, Shasirax?00:49
danbhfive1Bigshot_: I see.  Well, you can always just use apt-cache search <term>    That has worked for me in the past to find those kinds of packages, but I've only done it once or twice00:49

ubottuPlease 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. :-)00:50
geniiBigshot_: It's not something I'm ready or interested in to give support of.00:50
MindVirusntemis: yes, don't forget about those other devices.00:50
ntemisMindVirus: and i thought was correct because indeed my soundcard is alc88300:50
O__oRSA host key for has changed and you have requested strict checking00:50
MindVirusntemis: the state of sound support in Linux is a shamble.00:50
joakobiovore: I don't think we are talking about this same thing... if you look at http://www.susestudio.com it isn't anywhere near the same concept as http://ubuntustudio.org/00:50
alanpananyone knows how to switch consoles, i tried ctrl+alt+F(1-6), but it is not working.00:50
ntemisMindVirus: what shamble means?00:50
MindVirusntemis: think of a collapsed building.00:51
Bigshot_genii:  do you know any pdf annottator?00:51
biovoreO__o: then when connecting?00:51
joako"SUSE Studio builds: Your software and everything it needs, in one appliance; A custom distro, with your own software and branding"00:51
MindVirusntemis: we need a daemon (PulseAudio) to delegate sound to a proper daemon because there are so many of them now that developers can't code for a specific one.00:51
O__obiovore, how to fix?00:51
ShasiroxMindVirus: Done00:51
geniiBigshot_: Not off the top of my head00:51
biovoreO__o: havn't got a clear picture of what your problem is..00:51
MindVirusShasirox: I will talk to you here, yes?00:51
ntemisMindVirus:  why the dont fix it after so time pulse audio is out and all distros use it?00:52
O__oi try to ssh into other computer but cant because i have use that IP on different network00:52
ShasiroxMindVirus: Yes, im on my brothers comp now :)00:52
MindVirusntemis: fixing is harder than talking. There is a lot that needs to be done.00:52
MindVirusntemis: it's amazing that sound even works.00:52
O__oasically, the SSH erver you contacted either renewed the authenicated/encyption key or reinstalled, which would also renew the key. If you're sure that the server is who/what you're contacted then deleted the known_hosts file and continue.00:52
biovoreO__o: when you ssh.. is it saying something about the RSA key not matching?00:52
MindVirusShasirox: great.00:52
ntemisMindVirus:  lol00:52
O__ohow to delete known_hosts file?00:52
MindVirusShasirox: now we'll need to take a look at xorg.conf. Do you know where that is?00:53

JesusCakewarcraft III the frozen throne01:08
MindVirusJesusCake: Have you installed restricted drivers?01:08
queso_MindVirus: That doesn't sound like an orthodox method, though. There ought to be a way to end user sessions without restarting daemons, no?01:08
JesusCakeim very new to linux01:08
ShasiroxMindVirus: Should i copy that any save in the file?01:08
Bigshot_is there a floating keyboard in ubuntu for TAblet pc?01:09
MindVirusqueso_: the client connects to the daemon. The daemon takes control from there. If you can figure out a way to tell the daemon to kill the connection safely then by all means do it.01:09
JesusCakeubuntu was the only thing that would install on my hard drive.. so im trying to make stuff work :D01:09
MindVirusShasirox: save what I wrote into xorg.conf.01:09
GoudaBishot_: A character map?01:09
ShasiroxMindVirus: I will01:09
MindVirusShasirox: xorg.conf is the de-facto Xorg configuration file.01:09
MindVirusShasirox: you will be screwing with this file a lot.01:09
Bigshot_what no for writing and inputting text with stylus Gouda01:09
GoudaNot sure01:10
Bigshot_i installed wacom-tools but then waht?01:10
MindVirusJesusCake: Linux is not the best with games.01:10
JesusCakei know01:10
MindVirusJesusCake: but only because game vendors have not begun to support Linux as widely yet.01:10
JesusCakeits my only optoin right now01:10
JesusCakeuntil i can afford a new hard drive01:10
MindVirusJesusCake: System->Administration->Hardware Drivers.01:10
GoudaJesusCake: are you using WINE to run War3?01:10
JesusCakeand there is nothing in the drivers01:10
ShasiroxMindVirus: Permission problem -.-01:11
ShasiroxCant save it....01:11
MindVirusShasirox: how did you open the file?01:11

JesusCakeit does not go to the desktop01:15
Bigshot_how can i use stylus to input into ubuntu?01:16
MindVirusShasirox: did you already restart? If not, don't.01:16
pauljwnot sure noobez, i'm in a kde envir right now, but i'm sure there is someplace to set hotkeys01:16
GoudaYeah not sure about the alt+tab thing JesusCake but glad the game is running better :)01:16
salty-horsehi. master_ here installed both ubuntu and kubuntu from different live cd's into different partitions. his grub menu now has both kubuntu and ubuntu. what's the best and/or simplest way to remove the kubuntu partition?01:16
ShasiroxMindVirus: Im at "login screen"01:16
JesusCakenow if i only had a mouse i could test it out01:16
MindVirusJesusCake: That means that the game is controlling the keyboard input and not responding to Alt+Tab.01:16
MindVirusShasirox: so it does work.01:16
JesusCakehow do i fix01:16
ShasiroxMindVirus: no, it black...01:16
MindVirusJesusCake: this is the fault of the game, not of Linux.01:16
Bigshot_hey pauljw is there a floating keyboard or stylus input in ubuntu for tablet pc?01:16
JesusCakeah okay01:16
MindVirusShasirox: what do you mean?01:16
JesusCakeso only way to alt tab01:16
JesusCakeis to01:16
FloodBot2JesusCake: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.01:17
MindVirusJesusCake: there may be a different way but I don't know it.01:17
JesusCakegod blizzard, way to ruin everything01:17
GoudaWINE supports alt tabbing but War3 may not01:17
JesusCakeon windows01:17
JesusCakeyou can alt tab01:17
queso_MindVirus: Figured it out. Just do 'w' to find which TTY the connection is. Then01:17
JesusCakewith war301:17
pauljwsry Bigshot_ i really don't know01:17
ShasiroxMindVirus: Just a black screen... But it should be loginscreen, if i had not had the problem...01:17
MindVirusqueso_: of course; I forgot it's still a TTY.01:17
JesusCakewhat if i just used a windows loader, and installed it from there01:17
MindVirusShasirox: so you don't have a login screen or you do?01:17
JesusCakewould i have performance issues?01:17
MindVirusJesusCake: what do you mean, Windows loader?01:18
queso_MindVirus: (sorry, accidentally hit enter) then 'ps -u username' to find the process id for bash.  then 'kill -9 processid'01:18
ShasiroxMindVirus: I dont have a loginscreen01:18
JesusCakevirtual machine01:18
MindVirusShasirox: Ctrl+Alt+F1.01:18
MindVirusJesusCake: Virtual machines run better with less incompatibilities. You can try one.01:18
ShasiroxMindVirus: Nothing hapens...01:18
JesusCakeah okay01:18
queso_MindVirus: I guess that's basically the safe way to log someone out, kinda, by just killing their bash process.01:18
JesusCakeimma pump up the resolution on this game01:18
Sirmimer****I need help to installing a program, i got a guide to it, but im not sure on how to use the terminal codes right - Can anyone help me?01:19

i00nsuSirmimer, dpkg -i file.deb01:19
GoudaMindVirus, how long you been using Linux?01:19
Sirmimeri00nsu: It's not a .deb file01:19
MindVirusGouda: 'bout 5-6 years.01:19
MindVirusGouda: I started on Gentoo, though.01:20
ShasiroxMindVirus: Yes, but it's smal colour parts here ant there01:20
MindVirusShasirox: nothing that makes any sense, though, right?01:20
SirmimerI00nsu: hamachi- (Thats what its called)01:20
ShasiroxMindVirus: no :/01:20
GoudaMkay. I started on redhat and tried out mandrake back around 2000 but haven't dealt with Linux since until now01:20
MindVirusAlright. Go to the LiveCD, or the recovery command prompt (which I prefer; I don't know about you).01:20
i00nsutar zxf for tar.gz or tar xjf for bz2 and ./configure --help for advanced options.. you should read the readme file before01:21

MindVirusGouda: Gentoo really teaches you.01:21
Dr_WillisIm lazy and use the 'unp' command :)01:21
MindVirusShasirox: pardon?01:21
GoudaMindVirus: How does it teach you? Is it very particular about how things are done?01:21
MindVirusGouda: it is the least user-friendly operating system ever.01:22
MindVirusAnd I had to start with it.01:22
Sirmimeri00nsu: Download the hamachi Linux package (I did that) Extract the package to a temp directory (I did at /Home/Christian/) Change to that directory in terminal (I tryed cd /home/christian/ but that didnt work, im stuck here)01:22
ironfroggy_if I do `dd if=/dev/sdb of=backup.img` where /dev/sdb is a 120GB usb disk, why might dd say it completed copying only 2.2meg?01:22

ironfroggy_MindVirus: how do i know that?01:23
a514Where can i get Xplash for 9.04?01:23
ShasiroxMindVirus: It's creapy...01:23
MindVirusGouda: installation consists of being dropped into a root terminal with an Internet connection and asked to untar a big archive.01:23
ShasiroxMindVirus: I'll boot in recovery mode01:23
MindVirusironfroggy_: I'm guessing /dev/sdb is a CD, right?01:23
GoudaVery interesting01:23
ironfroggy_no, its an older IDE harddrive connected via a USB adapter.01:23
ShasiroxMindVirus: Now im in the recovery mode :)01:24
ironfroggy_im trying to backup some discs from a defunct machine i was using as a sambda server01:24
MindVirusShasirox: OK, in the root prompt, yes?01:24
JesusCakeso i tried to join a game01:24
JesusCakeand it crashes and my comp freezes01:24
MindVirusironfroggy_: there are probably filesystem corruptions.01:24
ShasiroxMindVirus: Pardon?01:24
MindVirusironfroggy_: try to fsck.01:24
GoudaJesusCake: Tried joining a WAN game?01:24
Dr_Willisironfroggy_:  if yoy use the 'BS' option with dd - it will copy much faster. theres also a 'dd_rescue' variant for  drives with  read errors.01:24
JesusCakea battle.net game01:24
ironfroggy_MindVirus: fsck frightens me when it asks lots of questions.01:24
MindVirusShasirox: the recovery console gives you a few options.01:24
a514Has anyone tested Ubuntu 9.10 alpha 4? I want to d/l Xplash for 9.0401:24
MindVirusironfroggy_: me too. You get over it, though. :)01:24
i00nsuSirmimer, did you read the README file? did you make (1. make install, 2. hamachi-init, 3, hamachi start, etc) ?01:24
MindVirusironfroggy_: I'm happy I can finally help you after you helping me so many times in #python.01:24
ShasiroxMindVirus: Yes, witch one should i take?01:24
ironfroggy_MindVirus: it asks me to start overwriting blocks starting at block 1001:25
ironfroggy_and every single block after that01:25
MindVirusironfroggy_: extreme data corruption.01:25
Dr_Willisironfroggy_:  and you may want to 'dd' the individual partitions if you wish to access them via the loopback mount feature later..  you can do it with  the whold 'disk' image. but its a little more involved.01:25
ShasiroxMindVirus: Sry, i cant spell....01:25
MindVirusShasirox: it's no problem. As long as I can read what you're writing.01:25
i00nsuSirmimer, is all there.. all instructions01:25

ironfroggy_thank you for all the suggestions01:25
ShasiroxMindVirus: Yes01:26
MindVirusironfroggy_: I'm fairly certain your drive's busted.01:26
ironfroggy_the worst thing is I started with the newest drive in the box, as a test run before i tried the ones i though tmight actually be faulty :-(01:26
MindVirusironfroggy_: please tell me if this is not the case so I can keep trying to help.01:26
ironfroggy_MindVirus: ill try a few more things and come back if i can continue01:26
ShasiroxMindVirus: Time here is 2:26 in the morning :)01:26

ShasiroxMindVirus: No, problem :)01:27
MindVirusShasirox: you need to be heading to bed soon?01:27
GoudaJesusCake: You changed your resolutions to high resolotion right?01:27
ShasiroxMindVirus: Naaa...01:27

mattwj2002acceleration too? :D01:29
Shasiroxthose    '   alike things...01:30
MindVirusShasirox: don't include the backticks.01:30
mattwj2002this will go in mythtv box :D01:30
mattwj2002also what about hdmi support?01:30
MindVirusShasirox: you can type them right above the tab key. They mean `this is a command`.01:30
mattwj2002sorry about all the questions?01:30
MindVirusmattwj2002: HDMI is supported AFAIK. I don't know very well about this, though.01:30
JesusCakealt tab works now..01:30
JesusCakebut i cannot host01:31
JesusCakelike i used to be able to01:31
MindVirusmattwj2002: the card will work, guaranteed. Acceleration, however, is the 90% thing.01:31

caseydi have their uuid, so in fstab i put: UUID=2039849283 /storage ntfs02:00
eljefe_what application opens .deb files?02:01
redvamp128david__:  you could go into sound under preferences and it should be in the selection on the drop down.02:01
mralexandrohi i was wondering if anyone know some good radioprograms?02:01
ubottudeb is the Debian package format, also used by Ubuntu. To install .deb files, simply double-click (in Ubuntu) or click (in Kubuntu) on them to start the GDebi utility.02:01
Lars_Gis there any way I can get 2.6.29 or .30 compiled and packaged for jaunty?02:01

Dr_Williscaseyd:   I think you need more to the 'fstab' line then what you just gave...  (or did you trim it down for us)02:02
mralexandroi stay corrected  i mean radio software, where you can choose differendt channels02:02
caseydno that's all i put02:02

david__i dont see it under sound prefrences02:03
Dr_Willisyou can replace /dev/whatever with  UUID=XXX-XXX-XXX02:03
rhoDr_Willis, thanks for the hint. xdg-user-dirs package is what i was looking for :)02:03

Dr_Willisrho:  one of the things i disable. :)02:04
redvamp128Lars_G:  I think I remember on my other install that it updated to the 2.6.28  when I clicked the pre-released02:04
Lars_Gredvamp128: 2.6.28 is not enough :(02:05
redvamp128Lars_G:  it may have the 2.6.29 or .30 there but only way it to check02:05
Lars_Gredvamp128: I will. thanks02:06
redvamp128David_: under the sound options there should be a way to select the sound output02:06
redvamp128Lars_G:  only other way is to download the compiler and compile it yourself02:06

livingdaylighthey... i installed wine, something didn't work out, so i wanted to start from the beginning and removed /purged wine. However, when i re-installed it, it isnot longer in the Menu?02:08
redvamp128livingdaylight:  open up your synaptic package manager and find wine-- then right click and choose completely remove then apply , then try again.02:09
i00nsuRPG_Master, ifconfig eth0 down || ifconfig eth0 up || ifconfig 192.168.?.? netmask
redvamp128livingdaylight:  sometimes you need to log-off for menu changes to show02:09
Lars_Gredvamp128: I've done it lots of times but long ago and I wanted to avoid it right now02:09
Lars_Gredvamp128: specially since this is for/in a netbook02:09
livingdaylightredvamp128: odd... i did cotr. alt backspace02:09

RPG_MasterHow do I set my internal IP as static? So it will never change02:14
i00nsuRPG_Master, u are in ubuntu . and trying to configure administrative stuff, so you need to use the prefix sudo command02:15
redvamp128i00nsu:  I would try gksu instead02:15
catmandowhat is gksu?02:15
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)02:15
RPG_MasterI did that next and then I didn't get any feedback at all02:15
i00nsudon't know that ;) but hey, is another solution, is what ppl want :P02:16
redvamp128i00nsu:  it is preferable to try gksudo before using sudo -- (I had to learn that one the hard way myself)02:16
catmandowhy is that?02:17
i00nsubut can you tell me the diference?02:17
Rabbitbunnysudo will mess up permissions, gksudo wont.02:17
catmandohow will sudo mess with permissions?02:17
=== uman_ is now known as duhi
redvamp128i00nsu:  only differences I saw is that sometimes sudo won't give you a choice for something -- like click it -- but gksudo will02:17
catmandosudo doesnt mess with permissions does it?02:17
duhiHey guys do you know how i can monitor the temp of my macbook pro running 9.04? thanks02:18
RPG_MasterOK, so now my internal IP will never change?02:18
i00nsuRPG_Master, did you stop DHCP server?02:18
david__how can i compule a driver that is opensource?02:18
RPG_Masteri00nsu,  I didn't see that in services02:18
i00nsuredvamp128, hmm.. i thought it was just a interface02:19
redvamp128catmando:  you should really use sudo just for things like getting and installing updates (as in sudo apt-get update / upgrade)02:19
RabbitbunnyRPG_Master: It's running on another box, or in a router.02:19
redvamp128catmando:  though never use sudo natilus (as to file changes will make it root and you have to change permissions to get it back)02:19
RPG_MasterRabbitbunny, What do you mean?02:19
RPG_MasterI should put that command into the desktop that's wired to the router02:20
duhiHey guys do you know how i can monitor the temp of my macbook pro running 9.04? thanks02:20
redvamp128catmando:  or even worse the sudo firefox02:20
i00nsuRPG_Master, Oo thats wierd.. every ubuntu box have dhcp server.. try sudo dhclient3 stop and if stoped add that line to rc.local in /etc02:20
catmandoah I see02:21
catmandoThis page is quite informative http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo02:21

mnainesmmorrow: Did you reinstall Windows?02:34
miguelonnnnplease 1 quick question,02:34
Dr_Willismmorrow:  interesting. you could try one of those not-quite-legal windows live cd's02:34
bankixParsel: Could you paste a "fdisk -l" from within the ubuntu live system?02:34
mmorrowmnaines: i can't, since it didn't come with any sort of restore anything, nor does the laptop have a cd-drive (nor do i have a windows cd)02:34
Parselbank: what do you mean?02:34
miguelonnnnit is said that to make a disk dump (dd) you first need to u mount the device. But then, how can you dump a file if it isn't mounted? i can't get it02:35
bankixParsel: Preferably as root, so enter "sudo fdisk -l" on the command line.02:35
mnainesmmorrow: Does it have a USB port and can it boot from USB?02:35
mmorrowDr_Willis: ooh nice. so it *is* possible to boot windows from a usb key?02:35
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  you are dumping the DEVICE.. not a filesystem on the device.02:35
mmorrowmnaines: yes and yes02:35
Dr_Willismmorrow:  ive heard it is.02:35
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  and normally you do this on 'un mounted' filesystems.02:35
jgouldI have a question about fstab:  my root, /home and  /boot all are mounted with the option of 'realtime' what exactly is the option of realtime?02:35
NubosalIs possible to have DIrectX9 or 10 in Ubuntu?02:35
mnainesmmorrow: May I interest you in a Linux Live install?02:36
miguelonnnnok Dr_Willis02:36
Dr_WillisNubosal:  wine handles that itself. its not 'in ubuntu' its In 'wine' :)02:36
miguelonnnnand where is the fs mounted? Dr_Willis ?02:36
redvamp128Nubosal:  yes in a way-- in wine using -- something like winetricks02:36
miguelonnnni know the "device" is on /dev/sda102:36
mmorrowmnaines: i've got fedora on it now, but can't seem to get the wireless card to work. so i'm now trying to install ubuntu since i've read that there's a prepackaged working solution in linux-backports-modules-jaunty02:36
Sirmimer**How do i install a .exe program using wine?**02:36
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  its Not..  you are dumping the 'raw' device.  which is everything to a file02:36

mmorrowmdg: atheros AR928502:37
mnainesmmorrow: Would you benefit from a Linksys Wireless USB Dongle?  I hear Ubuntu has better compatibility with those02:38
Sirmimeroooh okay i think its installed now. How do i open it with wine?02:38
mmorrowmnaines: right, i just tried the ubuntu live usb netbook image, and that dies with "can't find module/something"02:38
Dr_Willisi find running wine whatever.exe from the command line gives me better resul;ts. because i can 'see' any error messages wine may give.02:38
luiferaresubuntu en español??02:38
Dr_WillisSirmimer:  wine path/to/whatever.exe02:38
Dr_WillisSirmimer:  it may have an icon in the menus02:38

Admin_room sexy02:38
mnainesmmorrow: If you can get the exact error message, we may be able to help you with that02:38
miguelonnnnDr_Willis, please tell me /dev/disk2s1 is on /Volumes/USB_XP_710 means that the device disk2s1 is mounted on the filesystem folder /volumes/usb? so i should umount /volumes/usb_xp_710¿02:38
redvamp128Sirmimer:  what I do is this open - up nautilus then click the one that makes the menu into path instead of icons02:38
Dr_WillisSirmimer:  and by default wine stuff instlls to a 'fake' windows setup in .wine02:39
redvamp128then goto /.wine then find /drive_c and drag it to the left bottom and rename it as wine drive02:39
SirmimerDr_Willis, its cause i got a full installed program, on cd. And i just need to open it with wine02:39
redvamp128then find the exe/s tere02:39
FlannelAdmin_: Please stop that02:39
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  what sort of setup you have thats using such odd names? ive never heard of anything getting mounted to /volumes/ befor.02:39

gwildorpaissad-hp, its bad to unplug anything when computer is on power...02:41

RPG_Masteri00nsu, avahi-daemon?02:42
NubosalIf I have 2 Drives, C: and E: (In Windows), and Unbutu is installed in the main (E:) is impossible to see the files in the E: drive, right?02:42
mnainesduhi: Are you talking about Ubuntu's built-in firewall?02:42
RPG_Master That's as close a name I could find02:42
miguelonnnnDr_Willis, i'm just asking if the phrase "/dev/disk2s1 is on /Volumes/XP_710" means that the device is mounted on the filsystem folder /Volumes/XP_71002:42
i00nsuthat is for DNS02:42
duhimnaines yes02:42
duhimnaines, yes02:43
i00nsuthats really wierd02:43
mmorrowmnaines: the reason i think it's hardware or something is that i just read "Wi-Fi must be enabled in Windows XP before installing UNR or else it is impossible to enable it. "   here    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport/Machines/Netbooks/ToshibaNB20502:43
jumbersDoes anybody know of a VPN server that's easy to set up? Doing some packet sniffing on my local network has made me paranoid of what could be accomplished in public02:43
mnainesduhi: I just use firestarter, as its the GUI for the kernel firewall02:43
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  looks like it.. but  those are not  now linux names devices..  so i just guessing..02:43
poentpaissad-hp: the cover is there for a reason. It should only be off if your working on the system hardware. And if you;re working on the hardware you need to unplug and discharge the system before doing anything. Unless the task specifically requires the system to be on02:43
mdgmmorrow: did you say you installed 9.04 and tried the sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty?02:43
duhiyes but how can i know if ufw is starting at boot up02:43
miguelonnnnok i'll have a little faith02:43
duhiAnyone know how to get sound working on ubuntu 9.04 on a latest gen 15" mbp? thanks02:43
Dr_Willisufw is just a gui config tool that generates the proper firewall rules..  'ufw' dosent start at boot.. the rules do. (i think i got that right)02:44

i00nsuI don't know how to help you RPG_Master... that should be very very simple.02:44
mnainesduhi: The changes you make to the Linux Kernel firewall are saved and load at bootup, so even if the GUI does not load at boot, your last saved settings do02:44
mdgduhi: did you try double clicking the sound icon and checking all the settings to see if they are turned up?02:44
NubosalIf I have 2 Drives, C: and E: (In Windows), and Unbutu is installed in the main (E:) is impossible to see the files in the E: drive, right?02:44
RPG_Masteri00nsu, Well poop :(02:44
mmorrowmdg: no i was in the process of trying that when the live image errored out at boot-time02:44
mnainesmmorrow: Can you try the Ubuntu Desktop version and see if that works?02:44
Dr_WillisNubosal: if you mean frrom a 'wubi' install (installed inside windows) i think thats correct.02:45
poenthow do i find the default gateway for a Internet connection?02:45
gwildorNubosal, if you used ext3 for ubuntu, there is a driver for ext3.. your results may vary.02:45
mdgmmorrow: what kind of error?02:45
NubosalDr_Willis: Yes, I used a Wubi install. Well, Ill have to move all the E: files to my external drive02:45
duhimdg, but i saw this message saying ufw was NOT starting before i even installed firestarter.. is there a way to know if its running at startup or if its not?02:45
mmorrowmnaines: hmm, is there any way to transfer that .iso to a usb key for boot?02:45
Nubosalgwildor: THanks02:45
gwildorNubosal, you can also boot ubuntu, transfer files to windows... then boot windows..02:45
Dr_WillisNubosal:  i hate wubi. :) good luck withit.02:45

Vox1Does anyone know a work around for the display preferences locking up my computer when  have the ati proprietary drivers on?02:46
Dr_Willisthat usb-creator tool is very handy :)02:46
mnainesFlannel, he's trying to install Ubuntu from a USB drive.  He has Fedora right now, though02:47

mnainesmiguelonnnn: maco is right.  As long as you have done something at least once and succeeded at it, you can teach someone else02:48
miguelonnnnmaco, i know but info is always good02:48
bankixmmorrow: UNetbootin(.sf.net) will write ISO images t usb devics and make them bootable.02:48

mdgmmorrow: +1 for unetbootin!02:49
miguelonnnnand the feelling of having made a thing on your own, with little help is such a good one :)02:49
bankixmmorrow: Available for Windows and Linux. No installation requred, just start the binary after downloading from the homepage.02:49
poentVox1: if you go to ATI's website and navigate to support/downloads you should be able to find your gfx card there02:49

* mmorrow notes all the suggestions :)02:49

NiklasHey guys! I have a very nerdy question...02:50
bankixmmorrow: I'm using unetbootin as main tool for getting a ubuntu-based distro onto an usb stick.02:50
miguelonnnnyeah, but what you'll do whenever you need unetbootin and don't have internet?02:50

paissad-hpi have a matter with getting images from one pc, actually, the LCD screens works nice, i tested it onto another PC, i wanted to know if the matter came from the graphic card, btw, i removed it and plugged another graphic card which works onto it, but i still have no image, so i just want to know where the matter may come from, or how to proceed in order to know the problem, thanks in advance02:51
poentvox1: either within the file you downloaded or on the ati website they have install instructions02:51

exapid_What's a good irc client (GUI) that can connect to multiple servers?02:52
Flannelexapid_: Most people like xchat02:52

jinnstarexapid if you want easy: xchat. if you want flexible irssi02:52
jgouldit's the partition that was fat32 so I could migrate around 400 GB of data to the new linux servier02:52

exapid_Yeah I dont mind chat, just cant find how to get multiple servers going02:52
paissad-hpbankix, i even don't see the bios on  the screen02:52
mnainesexapid_ I haven't tried it with Pidgin, but I can do that here...Just a sec02:52
exapid_I use irssi now XD02:52
paissad-hpi see nothing02:52
bankixpaissad-hp: Or is just the graphical desktop missing and you get stuck with a text console?02:52
Dr_Willisjgould:  you wish to mount the fileysstem on /dev/sda1 to  the location /srv  - that looks bout right.. You may want to try diffrent options  (i dont recall what realtime does)02:52

poentpaissad-hp: sounds like you either have driver issues or motherboard issues.02:53
Flannelexapid_: /connect [server] should work02:53
Parsleyok nik02:53
jinnstarexapid,  for xchat just click the xchat menu and choose network list02:53
bankixpaissad-hp: How do you know?02:53
NiklasNo probs Parsley02:54
paissad-hppoent, bankix the matter is not the monitor, not the graphic card too02:54
mnainesParsley: Is Ubuntu already installed on the drive or are you trying to install it on the drive through Ubuntu?02:54
NiklasParsley, if your new, try just "dd --help"02:54
mmorrowso the error the netbook img booted from a usbkey dies with is (and this is after the selection screen "boot from usbkey, install to harddrive, verify, etc"): "modprobe: FATAL Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/modules.dep: No such file or directory"02:54
kevdogAnyone know anything about bcmwl-kernel-source02:54
bankixpaissad-hp: Why is there no bios screen then?02:54
poentpaissad-hp: i said driver or motherboard not graphics card02:54
paissad-hppoent, ok02:54
halberdI seem to be having a problem playing a dvd02:54
halberdit is playing but very slowly02:54
Parsleymnaines:second one02:54
halberdlike 2 fps02:54
mnainesmmorrow: Have you tried the Ubuntu Desktop image?02:55
halberdand dvds have played fine before02:55
mdgmmorrow: did you USB key boot on any other machines?02:55
poentpaissad-hp, does your motherboard have an onboard video card?02:55
robert__is there any way to make my webcam work? i have an msi laptop and gyachi gave me error message: 'ioctl VIDEOSPICT' Could not set camera properties. any ideas?02:55
paissad-hpbankix, don't know how to explain that, but when i plug the monitor, i see nothing :)02:55
bankixpaissad-hp: Is there a second graphics card or onboard monitor connector?02:55
miguelonnnnoperating systems reside on those sectors. When bootstraping the system, the processor calls a little ROM memory installed at the chip, named BIOS,which in turn after a hardware test (POST) looks for a drive. When it founds one, it'll read it's first sector, looking for what it's called an active partition, flagged with an 0x80 hex mark02:55
mnainesmdg: Its a problem with his netbook's wi-fi card...02:55
paissad-hpbankix, no02:55
poentpaissad-hp, sounds like a motherboard02:55
bankixpaissad-hp: There absolutely must be a bios screen.02:55
Vox1Thanks Poent02:56
mdgmnaines: sorry was unclear he got the computer booted to a desktop...02:56
poentvox1: yw vox02:56
bankixpaissad-hp: If not, it might be something wrong with the bios or the board or another component.02:56
paissad-hpbankix, i promise that i even get the bios screen :)02:56
macobankix: my laptop has an option for "fast boot" to not show the full bios screen02:56
Dr_Willisit still shows a post msg or 2 i belive...02:56
ParsleyAm I supposed to copy my entire HDD image over to the blank HDD using dd?02:56
paissad-hpbankix, don't get *02:56
mnainesmdg: His netbook wi-fi card had to be enabled through Windows before it could be used, but he didn't enable it before uninstalling Windows, and now he can't get it working02:56
macobankix: so it flashes the intel logo in the bottom right corner momentarily and starts to boot without even saying the "press f2 for setup" stuff02:56
bankixpaissad-hp: I'm puzzeled now.02:56
miguelonnnnif it don'est found anyone, it'll search for another disk, if it finds, it'll execute a binary code recorded at it's first sector of that drive, which will point to a loader. In linux it's called grub, or lilo or anyone else. That loader will finally let you choose what you wan't to load.02:57
mdgmnaines: I got that part - I thought he had trouble booting into ubuntu as well as a problem with wifi card...02:57
bankixpaissad-hp: When you power on your PC, is there a bios screen on your monitor, or could you enter the bios setup?02:57
kevdogopenfwwf == anyone using it for the bcm cards?02:57
mnainesmdg: Yes, he tried the Ubuntu Netbook Remix with no success, so I suggested Ubuntu Desktop02:57
mmorrowmnaines: not yet, downloading the desktop version02:57
jgouldF2, F10 and Del are the common keys to try to get into the bios02:57
bankixmaco: But there is something on your screen. At least the logo. It's not totally blank.02:58
macoF12 too02:58
mmorrowmdg: i haven't tried booting from that image on any other machines02:58
paissad-hpbankix, no i can't02:58
mmorrowmdg: that's a good idea though02:58
macobankix: true. annoying that i had to smack keys til one worked though ;)02:58
* Dr_Willis wishes these MB makers would all agree on what F keys for what features.. its annoying haveing to rember its Del for this box.. but F2 for this other one...02:58
jgouldyes, F12 also :D02:58
mnainesmmorrow: It probably will not give you the results you want, however02:58
paissad-hpbankix, it's totally blank02:58
miguelonnnnso in order for you to make a bootable usb , you must dump an iso cd mounted onto your system to an usb, and make that piece of code and put the loader syslinux or grub or any other else into it, so when your bios looks for your drive active flag it founds it, and loads the grub which will load linux02:58
bankixpaissad-hp: Okay. Got that.02:58
mdgmmorrow: how did you make the USB key you were trying to boot from?02:59
bankixpaissad-hp: You could try to remove all RAM modules. Then the mainboard should beep a lot at power on.02:59
miguelonnnnto make it , it's easy, just mount -t iso9660 /dev/yourcdrom02:59
bankixpaissad-hp: If not, I'd think of a defective mainboard.02:59
a1Does anyone know where i can get blue ray support?02:59
bankixa1: In which way "support"?02:59
paissad-hpbankix, i first try removing ram modules02:59
miguelonnnnthen dd if=/media/yourMountPoint of=/yourUsbFAT16orFAT32FormatedUsbDrive02:59
mmorrowmdg: that one is an "asdf.img", which apparently is a directly-dd-to-a-usb-key-able img03:00
dihiAnyone know how to disable bluetooth on 9.04? (im using a macbook pro btw if thats relevant)03:00
mnainespaissad-hp: Remove the RAM modules then replace them one at a time to see which one is causing it03:00
mmorrowmdg: whereas the desktop one is an .iso03:00
a1Getting codex and recognizing the drive itself03:00
miguelonnnnfinally, run fdisk and there you can make it bootable and write an mbr sector (the first sector i said before, which will map your hardrive so bIOS can read it)03:00
bankixa1: The drive should show up as normal DVD writer/reader drive.03:01
IdleOnewhat can I use to split a large .iso file?03:01
mdgnever used as asdf.img...03:01
bankixa1: Without any modifications.03:01
mmorrowmdg: heh03:01
mmorrowmdg: s/asdf.img/ubuntu-9.04-netbook-remix-i386.img/03:01
miguelonnnnand that's all, now you can make it on your own, without the need of unetbootin and such programs, which are good for repetitive tasks, but can't beat the work made by oneself03:01
a1so what do I do to make it recognize it as a blue ray drive? if its possible03:01
mnainesdihi: System>Preferences>Main Menu>Preferences>Bluetooth then uncheck the box03:01
miguelonnnndid you get it nmorrow?03:02
mdgmmorrow: how do you prepare the USB for that?03:02
dihimnaimes that sounds like it simply removes the icon from the panel... not turns it off..03:03
mmorrowmdg: sudo dd if=ubuntu-9.04-netbook-remix-i386.img of=/dev/sdb03:03
miguelonnnni'm fond you got it hehe03:03
miguelonnnnanything else, just ask03:03
miguelonnnni'm happy to help03:03
mnainesdihi, is it a laptop?03:03
bankixa1: For the system, there is no difference between a normal DVD drive and a BluRay drive.03:03
paissad-hpbankix, i've removed all ram modules, i booted, but i have no beep, nothing03:03
ParsleyIs it feasible to fix the bugs generated from installing Ubuntu on one computer, then putting the HDD in another computer with different hardware?03:03
bankixpaissad-hp: I fear you have a dead mainboard...03:04
a1What do i need to do before it will play the movie?03:04
miguelonnnnhey Dr_Willis  are u ther?03:04
bankixpaissad-hp: Are there any LEDs on your board? E.g. at the network connector?03:04
paissad-hpbankix, let me check03:04
bankixa1: So you're able to mount BluRay discs the same way as normal DVDs.03:04
alinicricAnyone know of a webcam to apache page streaming program?03:05
dihimnaime yes a macbook pro03:05
jMylesI want to, for all future logins, disable compiz and enable metacity.  I want to do this from the CLI.  Effectively, I want to set preferences -> Appearance -> Visual Effects to none from the CLI.  How can I do this?03:05
a1No not at all03:05
a1but it will recognize regular CDs and DVD's03:05
bankixa1: Ah. Okay. What happens when inserting a quite normal DVD into that drive. Will this show up?03:05
miguelonnnnnice question jMyles let's see if anybody know it hehe i'm intersted too03:06
bankixa1: Ah, it doesn't recognize BluRays.03:06
a1when vista was previously installed, it played'em without a hitch03:06
mnainesParsley: Generally, the answer is no...Most operating system installs are set for the hardware on the machine they are originally installed on.  However, if you do a live install, you can do that03:06
Lythandegreetings, anyone has info or a script about iostat used for checking activity of a partition? idea behind it : want to automatically set the pc to halt of no traffic is on that partition. other solutions welcome03:06
bankixa1: What kind of BluRays did you put in?03:06
bankixa1: Films?03:06
MrKeunerhello, how can I limit the memory a certain application can use?03:06
a1i've tried several, mostly blockbuster flavors03:06
a1nothing brand new though03:06
macojMyles: i think somewhere in gconf. lemme look it up03:07
paissad-hpbankix, no03:07
paissad-hpno led03:07
paissad-hpthe motherboard's dead :-(03:07
bankixa1: The films are copy protected. You can't read them without some very strange software.03:07
bankixpaissad-hp: No LEDs at all?03:07
bankixpaissad-hp: Not even link LEDs on your ethernet port?03:08
paissad-hpbankix, no led when i plug the RJ45 ethernet03:08
a1i'm aware that it needs special DRM keys and etc.03:08
bankixpaissad-hp: Ah, there are LEDs, but they are not lit, correct?03:08
bankixa1: Indeed.03:08
a1but the Dell studio XPS 1640 is also shipped with ubuntu and has support for blu-ray03:09
bankixa1: Sorry that I'm not able to help you with that special topic.03:09
paissad-hpbankix, lit ??03:09
a1i can't find any documentation though in regards to it03:09
bankixpaissad-hp: There are LEDs, but none of them is illuminated/flashing.03:09
paissad-hpbankix, it should have the green and orange led     blinking or something like that, but nothing !03:09
bankixpaissad-hp: Okay. If you're lucky, it's just a matter of the power supply. Under-voltage or something.03:10
Parsleyok, something is weird with my unetbootin now, it skips extraction of files as if i dont have 7zip, but i know i do03:10
ctmjra1: see if this helps https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/BluRayAndHDDVD say's it's for 8.10 so might be old03:10
Flannelalinicric: There's a few of them.  Search the repos for "webcam" and you'll get a bunch.03:10
bankixParsley: Just install that package.03:11
Parsleyinstall 7zip?03:11
a1ctmjr: i've seen that link, but its not much help03:11
bankixParsley: Yes.03:11
Parsleyit's in my add/remove list already, i think it's installed03:11
macojMyles: ok so i *think* this will output the current wm: gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/current03:12
macojMyles: and to set it to metacity: gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/current "metacity"03:13
macojMyles: that help?03:13
bankixparsley: You need the package 7zip-full.03:13
mnainesIf I am going to do system and network administration, what programs do I need?03:13
Parsleyah ok03:13
jMylesmaco: You are correct that the first command gave me my current wm03:13
bankixparsley: Try "dpkg -l 7zip-full" to see the status of that package.03:13
nnullmnaines, if you use Synaptic there even a Tab just for that, even Add/Remove has it i believe03:14
Parsleyya none found, gotta get the full one i see03:14
macojMyles: hmm or maybe its /desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/default that you should set..... mine is "/usr/bin/xmonad" because its what i use, but i guess "/usr/bin/metacity" if thats what you want. well if current doesnt do it, try that one. one of the two should get it03:15
mnainesnnull: are there any specific programs that will help?03:15
jMylesmaco: "must specify a type when setting a value"03:16
lowlycoderi want to buy a tablet for linux; but it doesn't need 2048 levels of sensistivity like wacom; in fact~ just a few levels like 8 or so would suffice03:16

nnullmnaines, specifically03:16
mdgmmorrow: how is it going?03:17
macojMyles: --type=string03:17
macomnaines: you need a shell. and you need to learn to use it. linux and unix servers dont have guis03:17
mnainesnnull: Well, basically, I started up my own computer company and I plan to offer a variety of services ranging from simple maintenance to system and network security to disaster recovery to data backup/encryption and secure storage and file deletion03:17

macojMyles: ok03:18
bankixmaco: Interesting idea.03:18
bankixmaco: Did it work out good?03:18
macobankix: what?03:19
bankixmaco: Your company.03:19
macobankix: mnaines dude03:19
mnainesmaco: Most of the systems I would be dealing with would be Windows machines03:19
mmorrowmdg: i'm sidetracked with something else for a bit, but my plan is to get the desktop .iso (x86_64, since this little laptop has an athlon64) onto a usbkey bootably (a word?;), and see if i can get ubuntu installed that way. if that works i'm going to try the linux-backports-modules-jaunty pkg.03:19
Parsleysudo apt-get install 7zip-full did not find any, am i supposed to use p7zip-full?03:19
macobankix: my business idea is very low tech03:19
bankixParsley: Yes. Or just use Synaptic.03:19
mnainesbankix: I just started it up, so I haven't had any interest yet...One person called to inquire about the services I offer, but I haven't been able to reach him to return his call03:20
mmorrowmdg: i'll report back with the outcome, however it goes03:20

mnainesbankix: Thanks.  I am trying to get used to CLI, but I moved to Linux from Windows and am not used to CLI.  I still need a GUI to help me03:21
jMyles....sorry, how to restart X from the CLI?03:21
bankixmnaines: CLI = command line interface? Or something different?03:21
jMylesbankix: yep03:22
mdgmnaines: I'm learning CLI too - been using an INX live CD for the basics03:22
mnainesbankix: Aff...I need to learn that03:22
AhadieljMyles, sudo /etc/rc.d/?dm restart03:22
bankixmnaines: Indeed, you'll have to get very familiar with the cli.03:22
bankixjMyles: Real question? How to restart X?03:22
mnainesbankix: I only recently came to Linux (I have been using Linux full-time since July 1), so I still need a GUI to help me03:23
jMylesbankix: Are you asking me?  :-)  Because I'm asking that right now./03:23

bankixjMyles: bastidrazor was faster than me.03:23
poentdont use samba03:24
poentits a pain in the ass03:24
bankixmostafa_: Just install system-config-samba via synaptic.03:24
poentmostafa_,  are you using 9.04?03:24
jMylesbastidrazor:  That restarts X?  I'd think that would only restart gnome.03:24
bankixmostafa_: Then select "Samba" from the system settings menu.03:24
mostafa_poent: yeah03:24
Jooder492Why does Ubuntu make my access my internet very slow and any other OS runs the internet fast?03:24
bastidrazorjMyles, that restarts X.03:24
AhadieljMyles, gdm/kdm start X03:24
bankixjMyles: bastidrazor is right.03:24
mnainesJohnCorbeau: My advice:  Try to separate yourself from the competition.  The way I do that is in the business strategy - I work by myself, which helps me ensure the best possible quality03:25
mostafa_bankix: I install it via this command "sudo apt-get install samba"03:25
poentmostafa_, just make a folder that you wanna share andright click it. then go to sharing options03:25
mostafa_bankix: is it right?03:25
Jooder492Why does Ubuntu make my access my internet very slow and any other OS runs the internet fast?03:25
jMylesHmmm, the solution proposed by Maco to disable visual effects (essentially make metacity the default instead of compiz) from the CLI was not effectual.03:25
bankixmostafa_: Nope, the packae is named system-config-samba.03:25
bankixmostafa_: So "sudo apt-get install system-config-samba".03:25
mostafa_bankix: ok thnx03:25
bankixJooder492: GIgabit ethernet or 100MBit/s?03:26
mostafa_bankix: k I get it then what should i do?03:27
poentmostafa_, i'm telling you samba isnt the way to go03:27
bankixmostafa_: Have a look at you system settings menu in the system menu.03:28
bankixmostafa_: There you'll find samba. This will help you configuring your shares.03:28
bankixmostafa_: Of course, here are different solutions sharing files.03:29
mostafa_bankix: I can't find it can I use it by a command?03:30
bankixmostafa_: you can. the command is system-config-samba03:30

mostafa_bankix: K I opened it then what to do?03:33
Parsleybankix: can it work if I actually extract the ISO to the recovery partition?  I don't understand why having the install files and a boot loader doesnt work...03:34

jMylesmdg: yep.03:39
bankixJooder492: Okay, eth0 and lo.03:39
bankixJooder492: Below etho, is there some "inet address" followed by an IP address?03:40
mdgjMyles: and you don't want to start X on that machine to fix this, right?03:40
poentmostafa_, on the vista computers you'll need to dissable password protected sharing in the network configurations03:40
jMylesmdg: true.03:40
poentmostafa_,  otherwise after rebooting the ubuntu system the share should be set up03:40
jMylesmdg: Well, it seems that compiz is messing the machine up.  I don't mind starting X and using X forwarding.03:40

Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  dd if=/dev/DEVICENAME of=outputfile   the device does not in any way need to  me mounted. check sudo fdisk -l   - to tell what the device name is03:41
bankixmiguelonnnn: As long the device is connected, there is a device name associated. Such as /dev/sdb1 or simmilar.03:41
mostafa_poent: it has no difficulty with xp?03:41
bankixJooder492: Great. Is that your wireless IP adress?03:41

Jooder492im running this on vertualbox right now if that makes a diffrance03:41
miguelonnnnyeah but when i umount it /dev/devicename gets out too03:42
poentmostafa_,  no windows xp doesnt demand a password to login with like vista and windows 7 do03:42
bankixJooder492: In that block, below the IP adress, there is a "MTU:" followed by a number. Which number? Probably 1500.03:42
RPG_MasterI used the pre-config settings for deluge with the Firewall app GUFW... but then I change deluge's ports and now when I press the button it just adds the old ports... how do I fix this?03:42
bankixmiguelonnnn: When you just unmount a drive, the device handle will not get lost.03:42
mdgjMyles: I've not used gconftool2 before - where did you find it?03:42
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:   see if 'fdisk -l' shows the device.. You can 'dd' things while they are mounted.. just be sure to not access it any othe way at the same tiome03:42
Jooder492yes it is 150003:42
miguelonnnnyeah it gets :S sadly03:42
bankixmiguelonnnn: Only when removing the device physically it gets lost.03:42
mostafa_poent: thanks bro and another question how can i share sth from windows and get it from ubuntu?03:43
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  use the umount command, not the icon/safely/remove/eject option03:43
bankixJooder492: Okay. Then try "sudo ifconfig eth0 mtu 999" Please no typing errors.03:43
miguelonnnni can't ummount by umount03:43
miguelonnnni just can do it the "remove button" way03:43
mdgjMyles: you want to use gconf203:43
catmandotry umount -f03:43
miguelonnnnit's impossible03:43
catmandomiguelonnnn,  try umount -f03:43
miguelonnnnsome processes are running on my disk03:43

Jooder492ok thank you.  i will see if that helped03:45

miguelonnnnit isn't a cd, is a downloaded iso in my computer03:55
bazhangAbdullah9, please keep questions in here, ie not via PM; if someone knows they will answer.03:55
Dr_WillisYou dont just 'dd' or copy an iso to a flash and make it bootable. theres other things needed03:56
bankixmiguelonnnn: dd doesn't know anything about filesystems.03:56
bankixmiguelonnnn: And it doesn't care for it either.03:56
miguelonnnnok i know i need more things to do drwillis03:56
bankixmiguelonnnn: All dd does is to read data from one file and write it to another file.03:56
Abdullah9so you don't now ?03:56
yinlongAbdullah9,sorry ,i am always using ubuntu without any driver.03:56
miguelonnnnfirst i need to format it and then make it fat3203:56
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  check out 'pendrivelinux.com' web site.. or use unetbootin tool.03:56
Abdullah9when i plug it , nothing happend  ?!03:57
miguelonnnn i know that Dr_Willis , but i want do it manually03:57
Dr_WillisYou have to put a boot loader and get the proper kernel and initrd on there for starters.. then i dont even know IF they can handle a .iso file on the disk03:57
bankixmiguelonnnn: So dd writes byte per byte into a file or onto a device. Wiping any previous informations, inlcuding filesystems etc.03:57
miguelonnnnmy plans are format usb to fat32, dd the iso to it, and then install syslinux03:57
miguelonnnnwon't that work?03:57
bankixmiguelonnnn: No.03:57
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  the pendrivelinux site often has guides on doing it 'manually' or with scripts that do the commands.03:57
mdgpoyntz: what do you mean "click" - just curious03:57
eurythmia_so ... anybody know any reasons why I might not be able to connect to gmail with firefox-3.5, arora, *or* links2?03:58
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  formating, then 'dd' will erase the formating... you are going in circles03:58
bankixmiguelonnnn: Formatting and writing the image afterwards will destroy the formatting. So save the time or formatting.03:58
miguelonnnnwhy will dd erase it?03:58
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  because 'dd' is a IMAGE dump of a filesystem.03:58
bankixmiguelonnnn: Because dd just writes bytes.03:58
Dr_Willisyou could 'dd'  a floppy disk to a  flash drive.. and it wouldent be bootable. :)03:58
bankixmiguelonnnn: dd won't copy files, it will copy pure data.03:59
Abdullah9SO any one can tell me where i can find " os/linux/config.mk "03:59
Abdullah9SO any one can tell me where i can find " os/linux/config.mk "03:59
bankixmiguelonnnn: Byte per byte, sector per sector03:59
Dr_Willis!find config.mk03:59
ubottuFile config.mk found in dmake, gnustep-make, ivtools-dev, kernel-package, r-base-core (and 1 others)03:59
ubottuYou can browse and search for Ubuntu packages using !Synaptic, !Adept, "apt-cache search <keywords or regex>", or online at http://packages.ubuntu.com - Ubuntu has about 20000 packages available, so please *search* for an official package before installing things in awkward ways!03:59
miguelonnnnwhat i want to do is put the iso in the usb, make an mbr at sector 0 and then set it bootable03:59
Dr_Willisin oneof those packges it seems Abdullah903:59
poentdoes ubuntu have a firewall included with the default install?03:59
bankixmiguelonnnn: I think you want to do something different:03:59
poentyinlong, thanks03:59
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  that wont work.   you need to set up syslinux to boot the thing.. after you copy all files from the iso to the flash drive.04:00
bankixmiguelonnnn: You want to copy the _contents_ of the ISO to the USB stick.04:00
Abdullah9what  packges04:00
* Zappo leaves04:00
* Dr_Willis seconds what bankix says04:00
bankixmiguelonnnn: And then installing a bootloader, e.g. syslinux.04:00
mdgpoyntz: ??04:00
Dr_Willisand getting syslinux working right.. will be the harder part.04:00
miguelonnnnyeah that's what i want to do04:00
miguelonnnni want to make my usb just like the cd04:00
mejobloggsi have an ubuntu server at home, does anyone know if it's possible to check the hdd space from a Windows pc?04:00
bankixmiguelonnnn: So, first you have to mount the ISO, then copy all the files form below the mount point to your freshly formatted stick.04:00
miguelonnnnbut on my own, that is, without script programs help04:01
Dr_Williswhichis why the tool like unetbootin, and the tutorials at pendrivelinux.com  are worth reading04:01
bankixmiguelonnnn: As last step, you'll want to install syslinux.04:01
miguelonnnnbut i heard that copy won't work well04:01
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  you will proberly be spending the next day+ trying to figure out how to do it.04:01
bankixDr_Willis: Ack!04:01
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  what 'that copy' ?04:01
miguelonnnnthat dd is the way to go to make an exact copy of the cd04:01
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about audacious04:01

Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  theres making a copy of the IMAGE.. of the cd.. then theres making copy of the CONTENTS.. 2 simier yet differen tthings04:01
bankixmiguelonnnn: What do you want with an ISO9660 filesystem on your usb stick???04:02

yinlongPawan,what's your problem?04:02
miguelonnnnthen i'll format it to fat3204:02

catmandomake sure spelling is right.04:02
catmandoshould be in the repository04:02
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  then you mount the iso and copy the CONTENTS to the flash04:02

Dr_WillisAlli can say on about the ubuntu live-flash stuff.. it its using a WAY WAY WAY too complex setup of syslinux for my tastes.. I can understand what most other disrto/flash installs do.. but Ubuntu's is just layers and layers of syslinux configs.. :)04:14
sparrWhat is "HTTP Cache Cleaner" and how do I stop it from launching at random?04:15
bankixDr_Willis: Hey, don't stop the fun by mentioning that...04:15

bankixbtice: right-click the volume icon in the upper right panel.04:16
Dr_Willisbankix:  i still wonder why the  syslinux guys couldent go with  the same sort of config format as grub uses.. translating the 2 - is a hassle.04:16
bticebankis: "Sound Events" and "Music and Movies" are both set to Autodetect.04:16
bankixbtice: Then choose settings from the menu.04:16
Dr_Willismnaines:  thats plenty big.. gettting it installed/working 'by hand' will be the BIG challange.. ive tried it and failed...04:16

phylogenesisI have a server with Ubuntu Server 9 on it.  I plugged my computer in to the server via a crossover ethernet cable, and used scp to copy files to it.  I also tried to copy using sftp and nautilus.  Either way, if I copy more than a few hundred megabytes, I randomly get disconnected, after which I receive the error: "No route to host" if I try to reconnect.04:26
bankixbtice: Yes, that's the one.04:26
bticebankix: If I left-click, I get a volume slider. It is at max.04:27
gabakcaseyd are u sure? i think i have been reading about it04:27
bankixbtice: Below the sliders, you have on the left a help button, on the right a cloose button, and one in the bidle.04:27
phylogenesisIs there something that might disconnect me for copying too much data to the server?04:27

alanpanhow to answer somebody back?04:30

catmandocan you hide your mac address?04:30
ryanrhee90hi all04:30
bankixbtice: By raising all to max, and later switch the main slider to "Front", I solved this.04:30
sarthorksramiro, i don't know. it will do it?04:30

CoJaBo-Aztecgartral: Uh, why?04:50
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  the command line on OS-X is the bsd 'stuff'   not really OS-X specific..04:50
adantehi guys, how do i set the preferred media viewer in linux?04:50
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  and BSD is not linux... so there are going to be differances that we are not aware of in here.04:50
miguelonnnnthen, is there any #bsd channel?04:50
bankixgartral: Just create an empty directory, put in everything you like, then burn that directory to a CD.04:50
ArkoldThosadante, depend on what desktop04:50
gartralCoJaBo-Aztec: ease of archiving04:50
Dr_WillisTry #bsd ? :)04:50
miguelonnnnok heheeh04:50

myrondoes ubuntu create .spl files when spooling to a printer?04:51
gartralbankix: id'e rather have a way of making "template" isos04:51
adanteArkoldThos: gnome... i've tried system -> preferences -> preferred application -> multimedia -> custom set to vlc, but when i double click media files they still open in totem?04:51
Dr_Willismiguelonnnn:  i would of just grabbed  that UNR img file and tried it..  You proberly could of had it installed by now...04:51
myronor is that a windows proprietary file type...04:51
ArkoldThosadante, does Gnome includes stuff to specify the file extension?04:51
Dr_WillisDoes Linux on the new Apple Machines use grub? or some other boot loader?04:51
bankixgartral: Okay, what are you planning to do?04:52
adanteArkoldThos: nope04:52
bankixgartral: There is nothing such as a "blank iso".04:52
nnullis grub2 working yet?04:52
miguelonnnnhehe i'm back, nobody at bsd04:53
miguelonnnnwell actually the channel exists, but everybody's away04:53
bankixgartral: Often, the better answer is to show a better approach than to answer that direct question.04:53
miguelonnnnand #osx asks for id04:53
ArkoldThosadante, no clue then :P i use kde04:53
gartralbankix: it would be nice if i could have a iso mounted with the archive mounter, that "burns itself" when i dismount it...04:54
bankixgartral: That's why I'm askin what you're planning to do.04:54
miguelonnnngreat true bankix  hehe04:54
bankixgartral: Ah, like under macos?04:54
gartralbankix: wouldn't know, i never use mac04:54
bankixgartral: Just say "new CD", drag everything there, and burn it when ejecting?04:54
gartralbankix: ya04:54
ctmjradante: open the folder with the file right click the file then properties then open with and chose vlc or whatever player you want04:54
adantectmjr: hm so i just do this for every file type? is there no way to set the global?04:55
chezhow do i find out which program is acessing the internet?04:55
bankixgartral: Hmm, I fear that's actually not implemented that way.04:55
robert__how do i get kopete to connect to yahoo messenger?04:56
bankixgartral: You yould open brasero, create a new CD project, drag everything to that window and press burn when you're finished.04:56
bankixgartral: Hmmm, wait a moment...04:56
gartralbankix: kinda defeats the point, seeing as i was hoping to use this to backup a headless server (eventually_04:56
bankixgartral: Nope, then that's no solution for you.04:57
bankixgartral: The way is to create an empty directory, copy (or link) everything there you want to backup, and then start burning04:57
bankixgartral: Why do you need this "burn on eject" feature?04:58
ctmjradante: if it is an avi it will set it globally or whatever file type that it is.04:58
gartralbankix: primarily causer i backup twice a day due to frequency of power failure in my building lately04:59
adantectmjr: ok, thanks04:59

sarthork1how do i copy symbolic links? using "sudo cp -r from to" gives the error of "not able to create symbolic links". permission denied.05:00
bankixgartral: _maybe_ there is a way. But you'll have to script this all yourself.05:00
ctmjradante: are you looking to set the player for all videos no matter what format?05:00
adantectmjr: was hoping to yeah05:00
bankixgartral: AFAIK there is a signal, maybe from hal, dbus or even udev, when pressing the open button of the drive. Which normally unmounts the disk and ejects it.05:00
graysilverhave you tried just sudoing the cp05:01
wersis there an automated way to install the iwlwifi for intel 4965 driver? :D05:01
bankixgartral: Instead of unmounting, you could start burning and eject the disk afterwards.05:01
ctmjradante: ok hold on will find it, it gets kinda of tricky05:01
DreamgliderDiscovery t- 31sec :)05:01
bankixgartral: But you'll have to find that signal first, catch it, and write the scripts for burning.05:01

techtronicas a new comer to linux however vi is not very "user friendly"05:20
techtronici havent tried vim so can not comment on that05:20
DigitalKiwii'm a user and vim is more friendly to me than nano05:20
Scunizitechtronic: gedit, nano are alternatives.. nano for cli05:21
graysilverI like nano over vim05:21
techtronicvery true05:21
techtronici appear to have let the cat out on this one05:21
FirefisheMyself, I use gedit in X, so I guess I'm on the 'evil gui' side ;) hee05:21
techtronici didnt mean to start a full on debate05:21
FlannelDigitalKiwi: This isn't the place for editor wars.  As a general rule of thumb, nano is the best editor to recommend to people here who need to edit something in a terminal05:21
kevdogthose that don't understand vim = hate vim05:22
kevdogWhat about xedit?05:22
DigitalKiwioh i'll give you that nano is "easier" than vim when you know nothing about it, but it's worth learning, just saying05:22

graysilverI dont hate it but having grown up on note pad nano is easier for what i do.05:23

NFischertechtronic, i read that the .wav file has to be in 16 Bit.. do you know how to convert it?05:25
mralexandroScunizi, so i can make dhtml menus in kompozer? :)05:26

izinucsDan48p: you can use both on the same machine.. load ubuntu then there's a way to load kubuntu and switch between them on the login screen06:07
Dan48pi have 3 different ones installed now06:08
FirefisheDan48p:  What are they?06:08
Dan48pi have been using ubuntu on this computer for about 6 months now, but in school we use the kde06:08
Dr_Willistechtronic:  ssh in.. run screen...  not too complex. :)06:08
Dan48pubuntu, kubuntu & xubuntu06:08
izinucsDan48p: then sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop and use sessions on the login screen to switch06:09
FirefisheDan48p:  It's really all personal preference.  Myself, I even like to use FluxBox and fvwm when I'm feeling really minmalistic06:09
techtronicso scree is on the host machine?n06:09
izinucstechtronic: yes06:09
FirefisheDan48p:  If you want to be able to control practically every element of your gui, install enlightenment06:09
Dan48pwhat does that do?06:09
Dr_Willisyou could run screen locally... ssh to remote.. run screen there.. have scren in screen.. Ewww :)06:09
leaf-sheepjot down "sudo aptitude install gnome-desktop kubuntu-desktop xubuntu-desktop" to his to-do list06:10
Firefishe!enlightenment | Dan48p06:10
ubottuDan48p: Enlightenment (or "E") is a window manager for X, providing a useful, and good looking graphical shell in which to work. E17 is the current development version.06:10
Dr_Willisleaf-sheep:  i had issues with mixxing all the desktops like that recently. :(06:10
izinucsDr_Willis: menu's can be a mess06:10
emmadoes anyone have any idea why the networkmanager applet in Ubuntu Intrepid would show no wireless connections at all, even though im obviously online?06:10
leaf-sheepDr_Willis: That was intended to be an action but I am being forgetful today. :(06:10
FirefisheDan48p:  The current version is also known as e16, although the 'enlightenment' package does install it. (corrections?)06:10
Dr_Willisizinucs:  the default file manager keep getting confused.. was the BIG issue06:10
emmathe networkmanager applet is just all greyed out06:10
sam_samhello can someone tell me how to retrieve data from a formatted HDD ??06:11
Dan48pthe main thing in ubuntu that i use a lot that i haven't figured out is the multi compiz with the multi-desktops with icons in the boxes06:11
Dan48pit seems as though i have 4 boxes with nothing in them and have to guess or remember whats there06:11
sam_samhello can someone tell me how to retrieve data from a formatted HDD ??06:11
Dr_Willissam_sam:  you accidently formated a data drive?06:12
Dan48pam i typing in the main thing or since your text is red should i be typing in a different place?06:12
SirStansam_sam: mount it; copy data from it as needed.06:12
leaf-sheeptechtronic: Yes -- Run screen on the hostmachine.  You'll have to learn how to use shortcut keys.06:12
Dr_Willissam_sam:  or is there some other issue?06:12
emmaDan48p,  if you look down at the lower panel you will see a place where it shows all your workspaces and an idea of what windows are open in them. You can switch workspaces there. It may be by the trash can.06:12
FirefisheDan48p:  My text isn't red...what irc client are you using?06:12
sam_sami had /,/home etc on my HDD and while installing new version of os06:12
* Dr_Willis dont see red06:13
FirefisheDan48p:  That's specific to that client...I'm using kvirc4...somewhat different.06:13
emmaFirefishe, your text is becoming red for him when you highlight him by saying his nick06:13
leaf-sheepDan48p: The text is red for you because that message is highlighted for you.06:13
Firefisheemma...thanks, that explains it06:13
sam_samand these overwrote the previous folders which had my data06:13
vG|qum^gm all06:13
Dan48pwhat do you mean specific to client?06:13
Firefishegm vG|qum^06:13
zvacetsam_sam : do you have separate home partition06:14
emmawould anyone happen to know why network manager applet in Ubuntu Intrepid is all greyed out for me?  It shows no wireless connections at all. But clearly I am online06:14
sam_sami had it06:14
leaf-sheepDan48p: Also, use nickname to specify who you're talking to.. Try typing "leaf" then press TAB key06:14
FirefisheDan48p:  'Client' means, essentially, 'program.'  As emma just pointed out, whenever I prefix my text line with your nickname, xchat recognizes it, and highlights my responses in read so you can easily see them.06:14
sam_samsorry guys i replyed late.. plz help me06:14
Dan48pleaf-sheep, like this?06:14
leaf-sheepDan48p: Yup.06:14
zvacetsam_sam : during installation you probably check it for formating06:14
Dan48pleaf-sheep, that shows up a different color to you06:14
emmaDan48p, we call the program that you use to get on irc a 'chat client'.   There are many IRC chat clients. One of them is Xchat, which is the one you are using. Each do the same basic stuff but they each have unique features also.06:14
leaf-sheepDan48p: Right.06:15
sam_samits already done .. i want the data back ,is there any way  :( ?06:15
Dan48pit's been about 10 years since i've been in a chat room... seems a lot more useful this time around06:15
FirefisheDan48p:  We've come a long way, baby! *blows smoke* ;) hee06:16
vG|qum^ubuntu on lenovo S10E is a good thing, better than xp 4 sure. xD06:16
zvacetsam_sam : somebody else will halp you and you can look at the forums06:16
Dreamglidercan i install ubuntu in an extended partition ?06:16
izinucsDan48p: at least this one is.. there are others too.. as well as the one's that are populated by "other" ventures.06:16
emmaDan48p, nahh... It just depends on what chat room (on IRC they are called channels, not chat rooms) you are in. This is a sort of 'serious' channel since it is strictly for support.06:16
zvacetDreamglider : yes06:16
Dan48pi just clicked on stuff until i ended up here06:16
FirefisheDan48p:  ubuntu-offtopic is for more informal chat06:16
Dan48pi see06:16
NFischerhow do i convert a .wav file into 8-Bit w/ soX?06:17
Dreamgliderzvacet, alright, thanks. i'm gonna try out 9.0406:17
NFischercant find the command anywhere06:17
Dr_Willisclick on stuff till it explodes.. :)06:17
zvacetDreamglider : good luck06:17
emmaDan48p, actually right now you are on the Freenode IRC network. Ubuntu is just one of thousands of open source projects that use Freenode to host their family of IRC channels.06:17
FirefisheDr_Willis:  Heh...sometimes, sometimes...<click> *kaboom!*06:17
Dreamgliderzvacet, thanks, ill need it...06:17
Dr_Willis sox  --bits BITS   (from the sox docs)06:18
emmaDan48p, there are thousands of other worthy channels on this IRC network that have nothing to do with Ubuntu. And some excellent Ubuntu related channels that are unoficial.06:18
Dr_Willis-1/-2/-3/-4/-8           Encoded sample size in bytes06:18
Dan48pso are the different versions of linux pretty much the same functionally?  i tried kubuntu mainly because we have the kde on the machines at school... i like the look a little better than ubuntu but i can't find stuff as quick now06:18
zvacetDreamglider : nothing to be afraid of in it simple procedure06:18
Dan48pi guess what i'm asking is if i use ubuntu or kubuntu will everything transfer between them correctly06:18
Dan48pi'm mainly using kate to program in c, then your standard internet and open office stuff06:19
Dr_WillisDan48p:    kubuntu is ubuntu + KDE.. ubuntu = GNOME06:19
Dreamgliderzvacet, true true, but since 7.10 i have had a very hard time getting x to work after install is done.06:19
Dr_WillisDan48p:  you can install whateer apps you like on both.,,06:19
zvacetDreamglider : didn´t know that06:19
emmaDan48p, ubuntu and kubuntu are very nearly the same exact thing 'under the hood'.  But they are different in that they use different desktop enviroments with a different suite of applications.06:19
Dr_WillisDan48p:  the 2 are just different desktops. the underlaying stuff is still the same.06:19
Dan48pso it's really all preference then?  is there anyway to get a theme or something for ubuntu that makes everything some other color than brown?06:20
Dr_WillisDan48p:  gnome is themable --- check your users settings06:20
leaf-sheepDan48p: You only should worry about your home directory (~) and nothing else.  That's where all your personal files and configuration usually are stored on.06:20
Dr_WillisDan48p:  you want a Hot Pink theme or somthing? :)06:21
ubottuTo change gnome themes: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuEyeCandy.  Kubuntu themes: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CustomizeKubuntu. Xubuntu users should /msg ubottu xfce-themes06:21
Dan48pthat would work... maybe blue06:21
HoodmanIm in need of some help installing cups-pdf to use as a pdf print server, its a short term use, i need it to use a book that i purchaced....im new to ubuntu, but have it installed with the network working, but when i print a test page it tells me the service is idle06:21
Dr_WillisDan48p:  explore your system/settings menus :)06:22
* leaf-sheep yawns06:22
Dan48poh yea i forgot a real important question... i have a laptop in the mail that doesn't have a cd drive but i need to get it to dual boot both windows and linux are there any good tutorials you guys have around?06:22
leaf-sheep!dualboot | Dan48p06:23
ubottuDan48p: Dual boot instructions: x86/AMD64: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsDualBootHowTo - MACs: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro https://help.ubuntu.com/community/YabootConfigurationForMacintoshPowerPCsDualBoot06:23
macoDan48p: usb-creator?06:23
Dr_WillisDan48p:  you can set up ubuntu on a bootable flash drive for netbooks :) it works quite well06:23
Dr_WillisDan48p:  then use the usb-flash to install ifyou want.06:23
Dan48pdoes that work for normal laptops too?06:23
Dr_WillisDan48p:  of course.06:23
Dr_Willisor desktops with no hard drive... :) or with hard drives...06:23
Dr_Willisor your Pent 4 Toaster Oven..06:24
emmaDr_Willis, I think that will be a difficult project for someone who's brand new to linux.06:24
leaf-sheepDan48p: Assuming Windows are already installed when it arrive in the mail, you could resize the partition to make room for Ubuntu and install away.06:24
Firefishetoaster oven?  my desktop is a p4..but toaster oven? ;) hee06:24
Dr_WillisDan48p:  or test out Uubntu along side windows with virtualbox.06:24
emmaAnother tall order06:24
FirefisheDr_Willis:  That's usually a safe way to do it.06:24
Dan48pi plan on using the ubuntu more often than windows on this computer... do you do 3 partitions or just 2?06:25
Dan48plike one for each os then one for data06:25
krishnaprasad_hi all i want to install firefox latest version in ubuntu06:25
Dr_WillisFirefishe:  http://www.boingboing.net/2004/06/28/toaster-oven-casemod.html06:25
krishnaprasad_please help06:25
rww!ff35 | krishnaprasad_06:25
ubottukrishnaprasad_: Firefox 3.5 Final is available for Jaunty by installing the package firefox-3.5 and firefox-3.5-gnome-support | FF3.5 is referred to as Shiretoko in your UI, see http://is.gd/1reB3 for an explanation | Hardy & Intrepid: http://is.gd/1jkNY06:25
Dr_WillisDan48p:  i normally have (windows)(linux)(home)(swap)06:25
Dr_WillisMan FF3.5 is still a FAQ :) heh06:25
emmaDan48p, the easiest way is to let the Ubuntu installer take care of the partitions. However, some people do like to create the partitions manually so that you can have a separate /home partition. That makes future re-installs potentially smoother.06:25
FirefisheDr_Willis:  I just downloaded 3.5 from the site and store it in my home directory...easier to mess with that way.06:26
Dr_WillisFirefishe:  i find it easiest to just leave 3.5 alone... :)06:27
drygrainhi everyone06:27
LoCoBoi187whats the best partition type for linux06:27
Dan48pcan anyone see what i'm typing it quit showing up on my screen06:27
Dan48poh now it works06:27
LoCoBoi187ext4? ext2? fat32? fat16? jfs? etc...06:27
HoodmanIm in need of some help installing cups-pdf to use as a pdf print server, its a short term use, i need it to use a book that i purchaced....im new to ubuntu, but have it installed with the network working, but when i print a test page it tells me the service is idle06:27
rwwLoCoBoi187: ext3 would probably be a good choice06:27
Dan48pis the /home partition only for linux?06:27
krishnaprasad_i would like to use ubuntu in place of my windows OS for home purpose? So do i need install a antivirus to be installed?06:27
emmaDan48p, yeah06:28
rww!virus | krishnaprasad_06:28
ubottukrishnaprasad_: A/V software is available, however read this to understand why Linux does not have a virus problem: http://librenix.com/?inode=2106:28
LoCoBoi187rww can i PM you?06:28
Dr_WillisDan48p:  yes.06:28
rwwLoCoBoi187: no06:28
Dan48pwhat size should all of these partitions be?06:28
LoCoBoi187but isnt ext4 better since its newer?06:28
FirefisheDr_Willis:  That, too.06:28
mralexandroi am creating a flightplan for my schoolwork. i have to  calculate fuel remaing in HH:MM not in etc 9.46 min, is there a easy formula for converting it into that, sorry for my bad math:)06:28
Dr_WillisLoCoBoi187:  use ext4 if you want.06:28
drygraini just got a new acer netbook with intel atom 1gb ram and a 160gb hdd and installed Ubuntu 9.04 on it, with no windows partition06:28
rwwmralexandro: try #ubuntu-offtopic06:28
LoCoBoi187i mean whats the huge difference here06:28
drygrainim doing the peanut butter jelly dance06:28
rwwLoCoBoi187: possibly, but it's not default in Jaunty because some felt it wasn't ready. Personally, I use it and it works fine.06:29
Dr_WillisLoCoBoi187:  ext4 is faster06:29
robert__i got webcam problems can someone help me?06:29
mralexandrorww, isnt there perhaps a more suitable room? any sugestion:p06:29
LoCoBoi187and when i format06:29
emmathe /home partition is where most of the personal settings and all of your data ends up. So if you have a separate /home partition you can re-install but not format /home, and you have all your 'stuff' after the new installation.06:29
LoCoBoi187do i leave Mount point: blank?06:29
LoCoBoi187cuase u can put /, /boot, etc06:29
buckyLoCoBoi187: isn't necessarily better because the utilities for it arent' as mature and grub2 might have an issue with it when you upgrade to karmic06:29
LoCoBoi187im dual boting with 706:29

christa40Voer tekst hier in...morgen06:30
LoCoBoi187what do i put on Mount point: ?06:30
emmaDan48p, it's kind of like the user\documents and settings folder on windows (I think)06:30
christa40hi all06:30
Dan48pemma, so that should be the largest partition?06:30
robert__enen though the light is on and i see it on myself06:30
mralexandroFirefishe, yeah sure, but this has nothing to do with the aviation itself:)06:30
emmaDan48p, yes.06:30
robert__are these just bugs that will be fixed in karmic or what?06:31
Dan48pemma, what is the swap partition then?  would 10gb each for windows and linux be about the right size?06:31
marcoI have a question... I have problems with my sound, how can I fix it???06:31
zvacetLoCoBoi187 :   for root  /   for home  /home06:31
emmaDan48p, typically you have a partition for windows and then you give your root partition like 12 GB or so, and then make maybe 2 GB for /swap and the rest for /home06:31
LoCoBoi187zvacet: can i leave it blank like it orgiganlly is?06:31
Segueranyone available to help with sound and ALSA? http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=6373084b29a6908e9b608b3038a8ecb778301e2006:32
LoCoBoi187im very new to this06:32
emmaDan48p, how much you give to linux and how much you give to windows depends on your preference and how big your hard drive is.06:32
debio264is there an Ubuntu-based distribution made specifically to replace Windows Server/Active Directory deployments, or should I just install Ubuntu Server and set up OpenLDAP and Keberos manually?06:32

debio264and/or is there a simpler way to set up clients in such a setup?06:32
christa40a little confusing this new system06:32
robert__can someone help me with my webcam?06:32
buckyLoCoBoi187, you need at least the top level directory called /06:32
zvacetLoCoBoi187 : you must create partitions so you have to tell witch ones and sizes06:32
LoCoBoi187alright got it bucky06:33

MFeni have this problem with my keyboard .. i use mousekeys to enable one of my keyboard keys as middle click. problem is the stupid setting gets turned turned off when i plug in and then unplug an external keyboard. *so* i figured out how to fix this with gconftool-2, which is great07:13
renyefvG|qum^: did u get it working07:13
MFenthen, because this always happens before i suspend my computer for the night, i figured out that i can put a script into /etc/pm/sleep.d, and that script runs whenever i suspend or resume. great so far!07:13
MFenso, here's the bitch of it: those scripts run as root. i need gconftool-2 to run in the context of my gnome session. anyone know how to do that?07:14
DigitalKiwisu -c ?07:15
MFenDigitalKiwi: to me?07:15
DigitalKiwican run it as your user instead of root07:15
MFenDigitalKiwi: i can try that but i kinda think that won't work either. since that would run as me, but not in my gnome session07:15
unopMFen, i guess what you will need to do is run a daemon as the user in your gnome session and use IPC to communicate with it to run your intended command.07:16
unopMFen, the folk in #bash should get you started -07:16
MFenunop: that makes sense, and i suppose i could write one myself, but ugh. surely there's something already available?07:16
DigitalKiwiwhat is gconftool?07:17
unopMFen, I'm not aware of such a thing (maybe it's my limited knowledge) -- but no, it's not very complex at all -- all you need really is a couple of named pipes, that's it really.07:17

WIGGMPkLucidGuy: not really a need for it.. most software is primarily made for Windows platforms and eventually ported to Mac by the manufacturer. usually Mac made software releases Windows ports around the same time.. as far as what I have seen07:54
Parsleyrenyef: it doesn't have a cdrom, i think it's talking about unmounting the liveCD partition itself :(07:54
WIGGMPkLucidGuy: have you tried just adopting the Open Source equivalents? like GIMP? they even have a Photoshop like07:55
WIGGMPkLucidGuy: err hit the enter key... Photoshop like skin pack07:55
aj_444WIGGMPk: GIMP isn't nearly as good as Photoshop07:55
LucidGuyaj_444,   I can get away with using photoshop in my XP virtualbox .. but video editing like Premier etc just wont cut it in VirtualBox.07:56
LucidGuyWIGGMPk,  Yes I use GIMP all the time now for simple things, but its noo photoshop.07:56

LucidGuyVideo editing Ive tried a bunch ... cinelerra seems the best so far, but now Im running into compliling me work issues.07:57

iorguI have a hp Pavilion dv5 laptop, with an ATi mobility radeon 512Mb video card. I think that the processor is in use more than the video card it self.

What is the rezolution for this? How could I make my Ubuntu to say: "Please, use my video card."?07:57
iorguThank you !07:57
jhattaraWIGGMPk, GIMP is missing lots of features Photoshop has, and it still cannot understand the CMYK color coded PSD files at all07:57
Parsleyrenyef: when i do sudo umount /cdrom it says "/cdrom is busy" (again, this computer does not have a CDROM07:57
vG|qum^renyef - did u saw my pm?07:57
DigitalKiwicinepaint > gimp07:57
renyefvG|qum^: ya sec07:57
renyefParsley: so you created a boot usb using unetbootin?07:57
aj_444WIGGMPk: Agreed. Its too difficult to learn though. I tried both, photoshop and GIMP on the same day, Adobe just makes it easier to find what you need.07:58
WIGGMPkjhattara: now you lost me.. I am not a designer lol..07:58
Parsleyrenyef: correct, because it cannot boot from anything except HDD07:58
aj_444LucidGuy: Yep. Thats sadly why we have windows.07:58
WIGGMPkaj_444: well, the difference between a commercially developed app and a free one is relevant in this situation than.07:58
LucidGuyYou would think that a MAC OSX emulator would be pretty easy since OSX is bsd unix based.  Then we could use the mac versions of Adobe products .. and maybe even Final Cut Pro... weee07:59
LucidGuyand WINE I think is pretty crap.07:59
aj_444WIGGPk: I'm all for open source, but GIMP isn't the way to go for photo editing.07:59
renyefParsley: go into your bios and set boot from usb07:59
WIGGMPkaj_444: LucidGuy: how does a VM hold up when doing Photoshop projects? Memory? Processing Power? is the lack of 3D acceleration important? (again, not a designer lol)07:59
jhattaraWIGGMPk, meant that GIMP only understands RGB computer graphics palette, while PS by default saves everything in CMYK printing palette07:59
Parsleyrenyef: already tried that, it doesnt support that08:00
LucidGuyI dont want to find an alternative to Adobe products because MAC supports them.08:00
aj_444WIGGMPk: I run vista on my desktop, so I run adobe products there.08:00
jhattaraPhotoshop is one of the three reasons I still have XP on my laptop08:00
renyefParsley: your bios wont allow you to c hange boot priority usb first?08:01
aj_444jhattara: same with me and vista. its a love/hate relationship08:01
LucidGuyWIGGMPk,   I use photoshop for minor photo editing .. like sharpening colour level adjustments and more advanced stuff .and my virtual box runs just fine...   a little slow compared to native.08:01
Parsleyrenyef: what do i edit so it stops thinking of (hd0,2) as "/cdrom"?  "/" is going on a seperate partition, they should not interfere08:01
WIGGMPkjhattara: oh I get what you were talking about.. but to me, I dont see the difference... however, someone like you do.. I am just not a picture guy in general08:01
Parsleyrenyef: it does but it cannot boot from a usb storage device such as external HDD or flash drive08:01
jhattarathe other two is the lack of proper GUI for DVD authoring, and the (another Adobe thingy) lack of perfect Flash support08:02

How could I say: "Plz, be so kind and use my video card, dear Ubuntu"?  Thank you in advance!08:03

ubottuI am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)08:05
celthunderiorgu, whats your video card doing08:05
Parsleyaj_444: but when installing onto (hd0,0), it seems to think (hd0,2) is /cdrom, thus interfering with assigning the mounting point /08:05
Flannelwrsg: How did you install the new kernel?08:05
wrsgupdate manager08:06
=== Yo is now known as polloX
Flannelwrsg: It should do it automatically.  If for some reason it didn't, do `sudo update-grub`08:06
iorgucelthunder: I have a hp Pavilion dv5 laptop, with an ATi mobility radeon 512Mb video card. I think that the processor is in use more than the video card it self. The windows are breaking into parts while moving them. And if I choose to have extra effects on desktop, than for example, the films I play are blinking while they are played.08:06
WIGGMPkLucidGuy: you can also do certain things to get some points across. *hint hint, nudge nudge* like so08:06
wrsgbut didnt choose the debconf option stupidly, i was in a rush08:06
wrsgok thanks08:06
aj_444Parsley: :S I'm not really an expert on this. I'd suggest coming back during the day. Thats where I've found there are more people to help.08:06
