infidwhat'd be better is a daemon that monitors what files i'm tryin to access and if i dont have permission it runs sudo on the command automatically00:55
loshavraa: it depends. A process becomes a zombie because it's waiting for its parent to notice that it has died. To kill it, you usually also need to find and kill the parent, using e.g. ps axf00:55
i_am_nullcan anyone please confirm to me that yahoo is working with pidgin?00:56
loshainfid: when that happens to me, I just save the file as /tmp/t and then copy it to the right place using sudo. Don't lose much time that way...00:56
DarkMasterHaloi_am_null: Yes it works with Yahoo.  A bit of searching even on yahoo about pidgin would have worked too :P http://www.pidgin.im/00:57
infidlosha i guess that would have to do00:57
loshaCaffeineRush: I suppose so. I find wine a bit scary, security-wise...00:58
CatCheetoinfid: Not sure of any daemons to do that. Even with aliases you would have to remember to use something other then the correct command, like svim or something, so probably not the best idea for you00:58
i_am_nullyeah, i know it "works" but its not working right now00:58
Evelinalosha: Ok, actually I use to have echo's in my bash scripts just to see what the lines will output.00:58

CatCheetoi_am_null: Pidgin seems to be connected to yahoo01:00

i_am_nullthanks, CatCheeto01:00
loshaEvelina: just call them from a fourth script, in order, one after the other, as though you were typing them into a terminal...01:00

_Techie_is it possible to run openssh-server and apache on the same port?01:01
lstarnes_Techie_: two services cannot use the same port01:01
SerlaQuestion: Is it possible to make Ubuntu Upper and Lower Panels to be better viewed if orientation is set left and right, instead of top and bottom?01:01
Evelinalosha: Ok, but the new bash scriopt won't execute them at the same time? The second bash script won't start before the first one has completed it's taks?01:02
losha_Techie_: in general, only one service per port. Not only that, but there are conventions on which service use which port. Generally, apache runs on 80, and ssh runs on 22. You can change that, as it's only a convention, but it's a good convention...01:02
_Techie_losha- i need to run my ssh on port 443 but wouldnt like to lose the ability to have https01:03
=== me is now known as Guest32624
DarkMasterHalo_Techie_: Not only that if you change the port 80 for Apache, you will have to tell your client to connect on which ports as browser uses the port 80 (HTTP)01:04
CatCheeto_Techie_: Why do you need it on port 443?01:04
DarkMasterHalo_Techie_: Let me guess, your port22 is blocked by your ISP ?01:04
_Techie_DarkMasterHalo- not by my ISP, just a restrictive proxy01:04
_Techie_DarkMasterHalo- it only allows HTTP requests through and HTTPS on port 44301:05
loshaEvelina: bash scripts generally execute in order, one line at a time, proceeding as each line completes. Anything else would be chaos, though you can arrange other orderings if you need to, but by default, it works just like if you'd typed it in a terminal (the terminal runs bash too, it's just 'interactive' i.e. not running from a file)01:05
canthus13_Techie_: So... you are running a website that requires SSL behind that restrictive proxy?01:05
losha_Techie_: ssl, or ssh? Not the same thing at all...01:05
_Techie_canthus13- no, the website with ssl is connected directly to the internet, i am the person behind the proxy01:06
rjonesx1sorry for the noob question --- I have extracted a new icon set to /home/{username}/.icons/newiconset  --- now how do I install it?01:06
canthus13_Techie_: Ok. Then no problem. you should be fine accepting ssh connections on port 443.01:06
boondoklife_techie_: You can have it still work, but you would need to put the other port after the url (https://site:PORTNUMBER)01:06
_Techie_losha- however you can tunnel ssh through ssl which is what i have set up, but i need the ssh server to be on port 443 or it tries to ssl on port 2201:06
foundry87rjonesx1: The easiest way to install themes is to simply drag the archive into the theme manager01:07
* rjonesx1 cant find the theme manager :-(01:07
canthus13_Techie_: the return port whenyou access a secure site isn't going to be port 443. it's going to be some random port above 1024.01:07

fccfjohnf: already fixed https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/1224801:42
kiloviva, are you still using network manager?01:43
ddelrio1986Is it better to use aptitude or apt-get?01:43
GhostDogGuest40749: long term releases are supported longer.01:43
Guest40749canthus13: In that case I can wait for 10.04 but what would be the benefit over the present release ?01:43
CatCheetoGuest40749: A major release just means it is supported for a longer period of time. Every other release is a major release01:43
kilovivavista: have you tried wicd?01:43
GhostDogCatCheeto: well, the real business about it is LTS is what Canonical sells support for/sells to Dell etc01:43
jribCatCheeto: it hasn't been every other release in the past01:43
Guest40749Oh, ok thanks so its just the support and no difference in OS right !01:43
Guest40749I mean no major changes in OS or features !01:44
jribGuest40749: every realese is a change in features...01:44
GhostDogGuest40749: six months after 10.04 there will be a new OS yep01:44
mdgHello!  How do I increase the size of the font in an xterm?01:44
GhostDogGuest40749: basically like I said it has more to do with the business end of Ubuntu. don't worry about ti01:44
fhenning09okay guyz how are you all doing?01:44
VivaVistaNo, I haven't.01:44
CatCheetojrib: Oh, I thought thought there was a release every 6 months, and every other one was an LTS?01:44
GhostDogevery four ones01:45
canthus13kilo: Wierd. No mention of it at all.01:45
jribCatCheeto: nah, 6.06 and 8.04 have been LTS.  And 10.04 is the next one01:45
kiloviva: it's a much nicer network manager than the trditional one, if your OS can support it01:45
mdgHello!  How do I increase the size of the font in an xterm?01:45

GhostDogThe splash screen starts, then it drops me to tty2 commandline and gives me an error about the kernel, then the gui shows back up and gives me the option to boot ubuntu in low graphics mode, troubleshoot, drop back to terminal01:47
foofishmdg: or, i think, control-alt-plus, perhaps numpad plus01:47
GhostDogthe error is (typing it from my cell phone camera)01:48

mdgcanthus13: I normally install Linux Mint, but the previous install seemed laggy, but now with more ram...01:52
MenZaphix: I haven't, no.01:52
canthus13mdg: Mint is a little heavier than Ubuntu.01:52
CatCheetoGhostDog: No idea if this would work, but couldn't you just remove the bad source and do an apt-get update? or will it not let you do that from the terminal you can get?01:52

canthus13mdg: Not as far as I know, anyway.01:54
GhostDogmdg: Mint is neat, but it's just ubuntu with medibuntu pre-installed and a green theme pre-installed and a few reverse engineered apps. devs prob have made millions off it. heh01:55
canthus13mdg: In fact, enlightenment is in the repos.01:55
giikerhow can I connect to a NX server (LAN) at bootup from my laptop?01:55

StaRetjiErrod /home/xbmc/.fluxbox/startup: 43: cannot create /proc/mtrr: Permission denied - Need help02:01
DarkMasterHalokilo: Can you explain the situation to me, I didn't get everything out of it.  I remember setting a Samba server with auto-mounting from another linux box02:01
kiloya, the only issue that I've had is that the drives don't mount on bootup (it's really no big deal.... just an inconvenience)02:01
StaRetjihow to force script to execute as a root02:02
phixfccf: oh ok, so how do you synchronise addressbook and calendar information between computers?02:02
fccfStaRetji: sounds like xbmc needs more privlidges ... perhaps add it to proc group?02:02
lstarnesStaRetji: use sudo02:02
phixI like sudo02:02
kiloI have 4 shared folders on a windows box on my network, I would like them to show as separate drives. I've modified fstab accordingly, and I can manually mount it via terminal, but they won't mount on bootup02:02
Debian-userlstarnes: Can't delete a user ,userdel: user /home/ant/ does not exist02:03
StaRetjiworks onlu from console, script doesn't react if it's in startup02:03
StaRetjiwill try with proc02:03
lstarnesDebian-user: there's likely a flag for ignoring home directories.  check the man page for deluser02:03
DarkMasterHalokilo: Does these shared folder have restrictions applied to them ?02:03
s1gmab3tahey guys - what is the apt-get command to upgrade to the karmic beta?02:03
Debian-usercanthus13: lstarnes: Can't delete a user ,userdel: user /home/ant/ does not exist02:03
StaRetjifccf how to add xbmc user to proc group?02:03
lstarness1gmab3ta: apt-get doesn't handle that02:03
lstarness1gmab3ta: someone in #ubuntu+1 likely knoes02:04
DarkMasterHalokilo: Ah wait, I know what you want !02:04
Debian-userlstarnes: But there is a directory named "ant" , i just created this user.02:04
kilotwo do, two do not02:04
lstarnesDebian-user: in /home?02:04
DarkMasterHalokilo: Basically, instead of putting them into the fstab file, put them into the rc.local folder under /etc02:04
kilooh really?02:05
DarkMasterHalokilo: This rc.local file runs command after everything is up bascially02:05
kiloshould I just have it run a mount command then?02:05
LuisJahow i can install debugging symbols for phonon-xine?02:05
Debian-userlstarnes: Yes,02:05
StaRetjithere is no proc group, damn02:06
CatCheetoDebian-user: man page says it deluser won't remove home by default, have to use --remove-home02:06
DarkMasterHalokilo: Theorically, it should work.  All you have to do is type the command you want to run in that file, so if you have 4 share you will type four times the mount -t smbfs command02:06
kilooh! not just sudo mount -a02:06
CarlFK1I have a firewire express card in my laptop - if I reboot, the kernel will see it.  if I plug it in after the fact, it doesn't show up - nothing in dmesg, nothing in lspci.  is there some way I can probe/load a module/ get it recogized?02:06
DarkMasterHalokilo: This file is run as root anyway :P02:06
DarkMasterHaloDarkMasterHalo: But you have to modify it with sudo02:06
Debian-userlstarnes: CatCheeto It's disgusting , why doesn't delete from /home by-deafault? But it deletes from /etc/passwd02:07
fccfStaRetji: is xbmc running as a process or as a server?02:07
lstarnesDebian-user: removing it manually just takes one command02:07
StaRetjiprocess i guess02:07
kilook, I think I understand... so ditch fstab and just perform the manual mounts in rc02:07
fccfStaRetji: you actually run it from the command line02:08
lstarnesfccf: servers are processes02:08
StaRetjiif i issue sudo it works, but in bash script doesn't do anything02:08
Debian-userlstarnes: What's the command ? sudo userdel ?02:08
CatCheetoDebian-user: I assume to preserve data while quickly being able to remove permission for a user? Good Q, I am not sure :( Kinda annoying though02:08
lstarnesDebian-user: sudo rm -r /home/username02:08
DarkMasterHalokilo: Well, I would do it like this, or does a mount -a right now mount the two other network drives ?02:08
lstarnesDebian-user: userdel just deletes user accounts02:08
StaRetjifccf: yes, but have to run it each time x starts02:08
fccflstarnes: I meant service02:08
lstarnesDebian-user: deleting the home directory won't delete the user02:08
spOwhen does karmic official get released?02:08
kilo"sudo mount -a" takes care of everything02:08
lstarnesfccf: services are processes too02:08
StaRetjiso i made a bash script to call fixscript02:08
kiloit just doesn't wanna do it on bootup02:08
phretorfolks, what's wrong with cherokee 0.9x? Why Jaunty is stuck on 0.11.6 ?02:08

etfbI can't seem to make s2ram my default for Suspend/Resume.  pm-suspend using the default is broken on my Toshiba, but s2ram on the command line works fine.  How do I fix it so that choosing Suspend from the menu will use s2ram instead of the default?02:09
CatCheetoDebian-user:  If you haven't removed the user yet, just do a deluser --remove-home user02:09
spOis there a way i can compare two different directories whereas there is an analysis of whether the files are different?02:09
fccflstarnes: some run at boot = init.d02:09
DarkMasterHalokilo: Ok so you can leave what you need in fstab and just put mount -a in rc.local.  That would solve your problem of network drives not mapping properly02:09
StaRetjibut it wont wokr, it onbly works if executed from a terminal02:09
lstarnesfccf: those are also processes02:09
Doc_Lappyhey DarkMasterHalo is halo that good to play, worth buying a pc controller for02:09
fccflstarnes: I meant from command line ... I don't want to fight with you ... we are both right02:10
Doc_LappyI have it installed but can't play it with keyboard cmds02:10
Debian-userCatCheeto: I have removed the user, but the directory is still there in /home02:10

DarkMasterHaloDoc_Lappy: But it is a good game.02:10
Debian-userCatCheeto: Is there any way to delete that directory using userdel orf deluser command now?02:10
kilook, gonna reboot and see if it works.... brb!02:11
CatCheetoDebian-user: sudo rm -r /home/folder02:11
DarkMasterHaloDebian-user: userdel -r %username% I think will do the work02:11
Debian-userlstarnes: Don't want to use rm, trying to use userdel or deluser to remove from home directory02:11
lstarnesDebian-user: if the user is delted already, then you must use rm02:11
etfbWhere are the most up-to-date docs on getting Suspend/Resume to work on a laptop using Jaunty?02:12
DarkMasterHaloDebian-user: userdel -r removes the home directory of the user and the mail spool, if the user is already deleted then you have to remove the directory manualy as said by lstarnes:02:12
Doc_Lappyk well when I can afford it I might get me one so I can play it, I have it installed right now but not doing me anygood, I'd probably need it for fallout 3 too if I install it02:12
etfbThe ones I've seen are ancient -- Hardy or Gutsy or older.02:12
Lars_Gis there no way to manually specify the usb pen drive's device for a live-install or live boot?02:12
CatCheetoDebian-user: If you really wanted, I think you could add a new user, chown the home folder to the new user and then deluser --remove-all-files. Never tried, but might work in theory02:13
etfbDebian-user: Why not just use rm?  It's what it's for.02:13
CatCheetoDebian-user: rm would be a lot easier though02:13
DarkMasterHaloCatCheeto: If you assign the home folder to that one, yes02:13
StaRetjiI have no clue why is this, if i run it as root (works), if i run it as xbmx user with sudo (works), without sudo (doesn't work). I tried adding sudo -U xbmc to a bash script, but nothing happened...02:13
fccfStaRetji: that question would probably be appropriate to ask in #xbmc ... i think02:14
ulbI have a rather general question. I run my laptop with Ubuntu 9.04 and am very happy, but I want to add external monitors. Are there any issues with Ubuntu and USB GPU? Are they plug and play? Are there certain brands that work better than others (with Ubuntu)?02:14
Debian-userCatCheeto: etfb : rm doesn't delete useraccount, it just deletes the directory from /home. Give me the complete command to add a user with directory in /home.02:14
ulbDoes anybody here have experience with external GPU?02:14
kost_Is there a way to change the video driver a livecd uses?02:14
etfbulb: I've been very pleased with external monitor support in JJ.02:14
CatCheetoDebian-user: You already removed the user with deluser02:14
StaRetjifccf hm, they told me it is ubuntu problem02:15
ulbetfb: cool, can I ask what brand you use?02:15
ulband model?02:15
fccfulb: I only know how to do it with internal cards ... and that is what etfb probably has02:15
etfbulb: Toshiba A300 laptop.02:15
StaRetjifccf i just need a way to make bash script to executes without me being loged and execute it from console02:15
Vossulb, what are you trying to do?02:15
Debian-userCatCheeto: Yes, and did rm -rf /home/usr02:16
mkilo2woohoo!  thanks all!  I got it!02:16
etfbulb: Earlier Kubuntu had trouble, but Jaunty has finally fixed that.  It's pretty close to plug-and-play (though you have to reboot).02:16
ulbI already run an external monitor with my laptop, but I want to add two. I also want to use external GPU, because my laptop uses shared memory for video02:16
lstarnesStaRetji: if you need to schedule it repeatedly, try using cron02:16
DarkMasterHalomkilo2: Your network drives ?02:16
mkilo2yup yup!!02:16

DarkMasterHalomkilo2: No problem ! Always a pleasure to help someone.02:17
StaRetjilstarnes I have to execute it each time X starts (it is a fix for faulty intel driver)02:17
ulbVOSS, I want to run a laptop with two external 24" monitors (so I will use external USB GPU)02:17
mkilo2I'll admit, I just did the lazy thing: I tried just putting "sudo mount -a" in there and it worked!02:17
fccfStaRetji: look here ... anybody can run it and it will always run as root http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=21961802:17
lstarnesStaRetji: you could use it in one of X's startup files02:17
Vossulb, two monitors showing the same thing or different things02:17
ulbDifferent things02:17
DarkMasterHalomkilo2: Just remember that you don't need to put sudo in this file :P02:17
CatCheetoDebian-user: adduser will create a home folder, it is useradd that doesn't by default02:18
YonderingDebian-user, sorry.. coming in late.  You're trying to remove a user's home directory and account in a single command?02:18
Lars_Gthe bootable pendrive (or it's initrd scripts) detect the (broken) hdd partition as a cdrom on a "pen drive" thus booting from it instead of the pen drive02:18
Lars_GI'm trying to find a way to avoid it02:18
mkilo2oh! ok... so just "mount -a" ?02:18
StaRetjifccf THX I'll give it a try02:18
Lars_GBut nothing so fat02:18
StaRetjilstarnes : Thx mate, tried that already02:18
DarkMasterHalomkilo2: Yup, should do the trick. the sudo command as root is ignored :P02:18
mkilo2(sorry, I only just first touched linux this morning  lol!)02:18
ulbxrandr handles it fine (so far)02:18
mkilo2I see02:18
DarkMasterHalomkilo2: Well thats good.02:18
mkilo2it's awesome... been having the time of my life with compiz02:19
DarkMasterHaloYondering: With the command userdel -r %username%, it removes, the user, his home directory and mail spool02:19
zmassiaHey guys, I'm having a problem with booting up. It was working fine, then the next day I go to start Ubuntu and it's getting hung up at "Checking battery state". I'm on a desktop.02:19

VossUsb 3.0 will allow GOOD usb graphics cards , now you just have sort of functional ones02:20
n8tusermkilo2-> welcome to the new world, lol02:20

Yonderingulb,  on it, thanks02:25
ulbI just want to know if anyone has tried these with Ubuntu, and if so, what was their experience?02:25
zambai need a freeradius package for intrepid that supports openssl02:27
fccfulb: it would be great if something like that would work in linux, however they aren't providing a driver for linux, and it seems it uses a program that runs on the machine to make the external signal... My best guess would be that you would not have any luck getting it to work at this time... Perhaps with usb3.0 .... but really this is a gimmick, and not worth my dollar02:28
Vossulb, ask the vendor02:29
fccfVoss; if they will respond02:29
excalibasHello, My evolution mail client has stopped working, it starts but stops responding after.  (jaunty)02:29
Vosssewelldirect.com seems like a responsible company , if they dont respond dont buy it...simple enough02:30
VivaVistaI still cant connect to my wireless network, what can I do?02:30
Yonderingulb, according to the website they dont support linux directly.  However, if x.org supports displaylink adapters, it may pick up on this.  don't know without trying one though. =/02:30
ulbyeah, thats why I was asking here :(02:31
zmassiaHey guys, I'm having a problem with booting up. It was working fine, then the next day I go to start Ubuntu and it's getting hung up at "Checking battery state". I'm on a desktop.02:31

bastidrazor!mint | looser03:22
ubottulooser: There are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mintsupport), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), crunchbang (support in #crunchbang)03:22
Cyrano_DeSerla: right click on the panel chose properties.  Uncheck expandable.  Now you can click and drag the panel03:22

KeiyaDoes Ubuntu keep Debian's odd habit of mixing in nonfree documentation for free programs with nonfree programs? (I understand why they do, but I /really/ wish they would have stuck it in a separate section, like doc-nonfree or something...)03:27
looserbye ... leave linux for the pro-users03:27
kenyonKeiya: debian normally does put nonfree docs in separate nonfree packages.03:28
DarkMasterHalolooser: Ahaa loves this comment, I think I should just report you for that agressive comment03:28

looserDarkMasterHalo, sorry03:29
O__oi dont understand why ubuntu decide to put pulseaudio as default in 8.04?03:30
looserbye and sorry03:30
lolyeaO__o: its awesome03:30
O__oit was all good and solid in 7.1003:30
O__oits awesome in what way?03:30
Cyrano_DeSerla: You can try to edit the XML files in ~/.gconf/apps/panel and log out and back in.03:30
lolyeaO__o: nope, that OpenSSL security bug and gparted crashing on live03:31
O__oi dont see any improvement except problems03:31
Keiyakenyon: Uh, what? It's in a package that's different from packages containing nonfree programs, but it still would be nicer if it was in a separate section. So you could enable the documentation for things like every GNU program ever and not also enable nonfree cruft03:31
lolyeaO__o: 8.04 was rock solid03:31
komputeshow do i find out what module a usb device uses?03:31
huangjsGDB 7.0 has been released. I'm wondering if it will be included in karmic.03:31
O__ou try to install 8.04 and then skype you will see what i mean?03:31
kenyonkomputes: lshw shows that, I think.03:32
VivaVistaI guess I have no choice but to switch back to Windows =/03:33

Lint_sproaty: because no-one translated it to even cy?04:38
Aframesterwould i want to run a server of just a desktop?04:38
sproatyLint_, I exported my .po gettext file from Launchpad and they've saved it as cy. wxPython is looking for cy. seems a bit weird04:38
Lint_that means you've compiled it in wrong location04:39
sproatycompiled the .po file?04:39
Lint_yes, to .mo04:39
Jordan_UAframester: If you aren't very familiar with the terminal you should probably go with the desktop version, note that the main difference between the two is the set of default apps.04:40
DunasI have an external 1TB HD, that I want to keep as storage. Now, if I plan on completely formatting my C:\ drive when I install Ubuntu, should I do anything particular with the HD to keep it from getting formatted? Will I still be able to access it from within Ubuntu?04:41
VivaVistaok XCell, I installed it. Now how do I access it04:41
sproatyno, that's fine - wxWidgets is looking in my system locale for "cy", but it's not finding it, since cy-gb is there. I don't think I can change wx since I'm passing a constant to a function that represents the chosen language.04:41
histoDunas: You should have no problem accessing it. Just make sure you don't format that drive by accident.04:41
XcellVivaVista-   https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SensorInstallHowto04:41
Dunashisto should I just unplug it for safety04:41
histoDunas: infact you can boot to the live cd and should be able to see the external drive.04:42
histoDunas: You can if your not too familiar with the hardware naming etc..04:42
Jordan_UDunas: The installer makes it clear what partitions will be formatted04:42
DunasWell, I'm running on three cups of coffee right now.04:42
DunasSo I'd rather not do something twitchy-stupid.04:42
Lint_sproaty: gettext should automatically back to xx, if xx-YY not found04:42
histoDunas: you'll be able to see sizes in the paritioner during install so you shouldn't get to confused.04:42
Jordan_UDunas: I guess there is no reason not to disconnect it04:43
sproatyok, thanks Lint_ - I'll check with wxPython specifically. cheers!04:43
DunasAh, alright. It's been around a year since I played around with Linux last, around the time that Win7 went up for its first beta, and I was doing Arch then, so I'm a mite fuzzy on all this still.04:43
meoblast001hi, how do i add directories to my runtime linker? the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH isn't working04:44
catch_wow... granted I've not been to a linux community anything in like 10 years, but back then it was very exclusive with every other comment being "RTFM"04:44
catch_glad too see that has changed, at least here04:44
Jordan_UDunas: The installer for Ubuntu is *much* simpler than that for arch :)04:44

Jordan_Ucancuengt: np04:45
mateusrpJordan_U: new problem. Started happening today, after I updated the sys04:46
cancuengtim having a problem with a network card has this error: /etc/network/infetfaces:2:Unknown: Orden desconocida.04:46
Jordan_Umateusrp: Do you remember what you updated?04:46
cancuengtThe last is spanish for Unknown order04:46
cancuengtJordan_U: actually nothing04:47
cancuengthappened that someone moved the main hd to another server, and tried to make it work just like that04:47
cancuengtand as not, returned to original server but, is wrong now04:47
mateusrpJordan_U: not everything. But the intel driver was one of them, and I already knew it might give problems. I downgraded it (as i used to do) but this time it still doesnt work. What concerns me is that libc6 was also upgrade...04:47
cancuengtdon't  start the network04:48
Jordan_Umateusrp: Just to make sure the upgrade completed completely check that "sudo apt-get -f install" does nothing04:49
mateusrpJordan_U: it did, already tried that04:49
mateusrpJordan_U: i already went through google and the forums.. tried everything they said... only this "noaccel" allows me to login04:50
Jordan_Umateusrp: When you downgraded did you downgrade both the intel and xserver packages?04:50
mateusrpJordan_U: only intel. The others weren't upgraded, I guess04:50
Jordan_Umateusrp: Did you check that the xsever wasn't upgraded? ( look at /var/log/dpkg.log )04:52
=== mandiri is now known as dilya_manieZ
mateusrpJordan_U: yeah, looks like it upgraded xserver-xorg-core04:54
Jordan_Umateusrp: Try downgrading xserver-xorg-core to the version that corrosponds to the xserver-xorg-video-intel package you downgraded04:56
mateusrpJordan_U: I can't... In order to get X working, I have to use the 2.4 (not the oficial 2.6, shipped with jaunty) of the intel driver, which requires a PPA repository...04:58
Jordan_Umateusrp: Ahh, I thought you meant you downgraded to the previous minor release. Much of the intel regression has been fixed with newer intel drivers. You might try using the X updates PPA05:00
Jordan_Umateusrp: But I don't recommend the crack pushers PPA05:01

Jordan_Umateusrp: What version of the intel driver are you currently using?05:02

Jordan_ULamez: fglrx is known to have suspend issues, try suspending with the open source drivers. If it works you can try some things to work around the problem with fglrx or just stick with the slower open source drivers05:06

fccfhd409: yeah .. that''ll do it ... give him a user account ... ssh user@host06:09
Jordan_Uhd409: Installing the "ssh" package will install openssh-server, once that's installe just make a user for them06:09

cabarohd409: connect to remote windows client, or what?06:20
daf3707OK,我的pidgin的irc 登录不上来了,怪06:20
hd409cabaro: to access the teamviewer of my windows06:20
cabarohd409: ok, i'll google teamviewer.. one moment06:21
FireCrotchcabaro: it's a proprietary remote access program for windows, similar to logmein06:21
TheRealmezquitalwine is for babies, try virtualbox and use windows as a virtual machine and try your windows apps in the virtual machine06:21
mneptokhd409: why not just use VNC?06:22
hd409FireCrotch: downloading wine now06:22
FireCrotchTheRealmezquital: Actually, I would contend that using a VM is the easy way out06:22
hd409mneptok: you mean install first vnc server in the windows?06:22
cabarook, so it handles port forwarding and some security layer as opposed to rdc?06:22
hd409FireCrotch: i will install first tightvnc in windows?06:22
mneptokhd409: VNC has far better support in Linux than does Team Viewer06:22
FireCrotchcabaro: Yes, teamviewer handles the problem of being behind NAT06:23
hd409mneptok: but the windows is using teamviewer...but i can install tightvnc06:23
hd409FireCrotch: correct nat issues06:23
cabarohd409: if you don't want to forward RDC port, then vnc viewer would probably be easiest.06:23
mneptokhd409: you'll find VNC far easier to configure for Linux <--> Windows than TV06:23
cabaroFireCrotch: is it using a middle server or connect using port 80 or what?06:24
FireCrotchcabaro: it uses a central server06:24
hd409cabaro: ill install vnc viewer here in my ubuntu 9.04?then install tightvnc server in windows?06:25
FireCrotchmneptok: the teamviewer viewer works just fine in wine, I use it all the time, and had to do nothing special06:25
cabaroFireCrotch: ok, i would reconsider, if i was dealing with corporate connection. For home use it might be ok.06:25
FireCrotchcabaro: its encrypted, if I recall correctly, so not that big of an issue06:26
FireCrotchcabaro: but for a company, yeah, I'd probably set up something better06:26
mneptokFireCrotch: why use an emulation layer when a perfectly good and workable solution exists without one?06:27
cabaroFireCrotch: ok, just always a bit suscept, when going through a middle server. Vpn anyone?06:27
FireCrotchmneptok: ease of use for the person on the other end06:27
mneptokFireCrotch: depends on someone's familiarity with WINE.06:28
hansit's my birthday. does anybody want to give me money?06:28
FireCrotchmneptok: much easier to tell someone to go to teamviewer.com, click "Start Client" and give me the numbers so I can connect to them06:28

BirthdayMavloganhoup: you can switch to xchat and write yourself a small script to prevent such annoyance06:37

BirthdayMavcausasui: you choose when you create it, it doesn't have a default06:38
hd409BirthdayMav ok06:38
BirthdayMavor if it is, it's your home dir06:38
BirthdayMavBonesy: you can set it to any, but I have it on UTF-806:38
causasuiBirthdayMav: I dont remember creating one, but after reinstalling ubuntu, truecrypt is claiming that my password is wrong. I'm sure it is not wrong06:38
BirthdayMavcausasui: did you use a password, or keyfile?06:38
causasuiBirthdayMav: Pretty sure it was just password, but the "use Keyfiles" box was checked whenever I mounted it06:38
BonesyBirthdayMav: I meant scripting language :P06:38
BirthdayMavBonesy: any, or just plain text command06:39
causasuiBirthdayMav: I backed up my home folder from the prevous install, just trying to figure out what I should be looking for if it did create a keyfile06:39
BirthdayMavcausasui: if you used a keyfile and lost if, you're screwed. if you used a password, don't mess with the keyfile option, just enter the password06:39
BonesyAlso, is there a particular reason to use the GUI over apt-get through the command line?06:39
BirthdayMavcausasui: it'd be a text file with no extention06:39
causasuiBirthdayMav: I didnt "lose" the keyfile, I'm asking what I should be looking for. ugh06:39

snowyhi, I reinstalled ubuntu after an HD crash on a new HD but for some reason I noticed this new installation is using too much CPU ... (I am running 9.04 and I was running it before too) it seems like my CPU is always above 60% even when I am not running any big programs (top shows that Xorg is taking a constant 15%!!)07:23
KB1JWQsnowy: Interesting.  Any idea what it's doing>07:23

DigitalKiwied is the standard text editor btw!07:42
ActionParsnipmick_laptop: it advises VLC, so I'd say, um YES07:42
mick_laptopi'd have suggested less to just read it (and more is not even really an option, since that should symlink to less)07:42

iameliteHow does one unclaim a particular USB device(non storage/IE: Camera) so it can be used by annother program?07:43
tredwaythe same is always different07:43
mb_again_Wolfenstein: sounds like permissions, you may be able to see what user the script runs under, then su to that user and cat the file. Or you could just look at the permissions with ls -l and see if theyt are right07:44
Wolfensteinmick_laptop, uh i don't its not protected and its only a txt file and its in a folder for my bot and its only one file that is having issues07:44
BonesyIs there a good reason to avoid installing Amarok on Ubuntu07:44
mick_laptopiamelite: one way is to see what program is accessing it via fuser and kill the process07:44
* ActionParsnip does the VM dance07:44
mick_laptopWolfenstein: check permissions on the file07:44
Wolfensteinmick_laptop, its a txt file07:44
dellyBonesy: you will drag in some KDE libs, but that is really it07:44
DigitalKiwimick_laptop: less and more seem to be different, and not symlinks, on my system07:45
Wolfensteinhow can a permission set on a txt file if i can open and whatever through file manager?07:45
tredwayis anything odd about the file that would distinguish it from others?07:45
DigitalKiwiis ubuntu different than mine?07:45
sakoDigitalKiwi: what's up07:45
Bonesydelly, Can I assume that means it's not harmful07:45
mb_again_wolfenstein: you may have different privs than your bot07:45
mick_laptopDigitalKiwi: depends on the system07:45
DigitalKiwisako: hi07:46
mick_laptopkind of like vi and vim or sh and bash07:46

ubottuWolfcastle: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines. Enjoy your stay!07:55
WolfcastleI'm having problems with pulseaudio in jaunty07:55
dragon!sound | Wolfcastle07:55
ubottuWolfcastle: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP307:55
ActionParsnipdragon: ctrl +b then type bg and hit enter (i think its ctrl+b)07:56
WolfcastleActually sound works fine after shutting down pulseaudio and restarting alsa07:56
heyboyI have problems with arpwatch in jaunty. it doesn't seem to be working.07:56
Wolfcastlething is when trying to remove pulseaudio aptitude asks me to remove ubuntu-desktop07:56
DigitalKiwiActionParsnip: well at least with a lot of the different distributions they have a lot more different goals, or setups (different package manager, ideals on inclusion of licensed software)07:56
dellyWolfcastle: Its always recommended to remove pulsaudio if it causes problems, package can be found in synaptics and be removed07:56
dragonActionParsnip: I'm able to see "load> " upon hitting random keys, but help or quit or bg didn't work there.07:56
dragonActionParsnip: Ctrl + b doesn't work either. That's for rtorrent, right?07:56
Wolfcastleok thanx07:57
DigitalKiwiwith these ubuntu derivatives, which is just a debian derivative :P, they're pretty much the same, only difference is what the default DE iss07:57
dragonIt's painful that rtorrent isn't responding to SIGINT.07:57

lstarnesWolfcastle: ubuntu-desktop can be safely removed.  removing it won't remove the actual desktop packages.  just the ubuntu-desktop package07:59
dellyWolfcastle: ubuntu-desktop is a meta package, it contains nothing.07:59

Wolfcastleah excellente, just sounded important07:59
DigitalKiwido people name zsh scripts *.zsh, I can't say I've ever seen a zsh script with an extension08:00
lstarnesWolfcastle: it's usually a good thing to keep if you plan to upgrade08:00
dellyWolfcastle: Ubuntu core.... or alot of the xorg packages on the other hand :(08:00
lstarnesDigitalKiwi: it's usually .sh but with #!/usr/bin/zsh or something similar at the top08:00
ActionParsnipDigitalKiwi: can't see why not if it makes the users life easier :)08:00

lstarnescbelote: make sure that your router isn't running a webserver that can be seeon from the internet08:04
DigitalKiwicbelote: is your ISP blocking port 80 inbound traffic?08:05
ActionParsnipdragon: i use Transmission because it plays nice with my G1 phone :)08:05

DigitalKiwimost? in the US do, dunno where you are08:05
DigitalKiwiset it up to have dyndns point to 808008:05

cbeloteIt is not. Ive tested using dslreports...08:06
cbeloteport 80 is open08:06

ActionParsnipnic1: /etc/apt/sources.list08:19
roccity_can I just copy my initd.gz and vmlinux file to casper?08:19

roccity_delly: not using grub using isolinux scripts08:22
ActionParsniproccity_: you'll need to install the guest additions and edit xorg.conf08:22
lhillmanHi guys. Running ubuntu server, installed gnome-terminal and running it via the X server on another machine. The window doesn't appear to be themed, just the generic defaults. Does anybody know how to set the theme?08:22

FireCrotchcbelote: Alright.  I don't know why that happens with some routers, and even more confusing is that it doesn't always happen for me, just sometimes08:25
dellyActionParsnip: i guess its like xclock and all that, so i guess not08:25
DigitalKiwinote to self: tomato is apparently a hard word for other people to spell08:25

tehbautI have four hard drives but have no idea where grub's MBR was installed08:29
mo0nykitlstarnes and mechdave, okay, my mindset is this "fool as root" = "security breach". What could be the difference between fakeroot-ing as a regular user and su-ing as superuser?08:30
lstarnesmo0nykit: fakeroot does not make things run as root08:30
ActionParsniptehbaut: you will most likely find it on the drive you installed ubuntu to08:30
tehbautis the default grub mbr: \NST\nst_grub.mbr ?08:30

foofishKruyKaze: I just tested in a terminal (on OS X) and it does08:50
whoisBalsaq: nope, if you do have a cloak, i ll recommend ya to join #freenode (type "/join #freenode"), a lot of users are keen to help ya there... #ubuntu isnt the appropriate channel, the chan-ops might be a bit angry over us, this channel is only for Ubuntu OS Based Discussion, for IRC-Related Queries, #freenode is recommended08:50

FireCrotchBalsaq: Sure, someone could run a port scan, having that information, but in reality, you're likely pretty safe from anyone trying to do anything here08:52
KruyKazefoofish, yes but i just tested in terminal08:52
foofishKruyKaze: and your login shell is bash? I think you want to use the builtin echo08:52

whoisBalsaq: do ya have ufw enabled ?08:54
whois!ufw | Balsaq08:55
ubottuBalsaq: Ubuntu, like any other linux  distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Uncomplicated_Firewall_ufw), or 'iptables' (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo). GUI applications such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist08:55

cybersplicestoki: Well. I wouldn't suggest installing Ubuntu and THEN windows, but the other way around. You could install it in a VM i guess, but i'm guessing you're wanting it for games....09:57
cabarostoki: windows installation will overwrite your MBR so after installing windows you need to reinstall GRUB09:57
stokinot for games09:58
cabarostoki: unless of course if your GRUB is on a different than primary partition09:58
stokii have mini dv camcorder and i cant work with it on linux09:58
stokiihavent drivers09:58
cabarostoki: is the dv connected through firewire?09:59
cybersplicestoki: Virtal machine software might work out better for you. Look into Sun Virtualbox, for example.09:59
stokiyes dv>139409:59
cabarocybersplice: true, if you don't mind slower graphics, but that might cause some issues with any camcorder editing softare10:00

ivysky1981hey guys, how do I make my transparent desktop cube not fade the images on the other side of the cube?  I have full transparency all the time and I would like to see the other side clearly.  There was some option in compiz that would not fade the cube...what was it?10:01

OriWBActionParsnip: I don't understand it... I wanted to split the hard drive, and on the other put windows xp... i dont know how to do that10:04
OriWBActionParsnip: or you know what, if i could just get cubase x to run on wine, i wouldn't have to do it at all.  I installed it on wine, but it didn't run10:05
cabarostoki: first you install virtualbox, then you can add virtual machines, which you install once and can use when you need10:05
jerknextdoori can't get fetchmail-daemon to run at startup on 9.04.  any ideas?10:06
ActionParsnipOriWB: install XP first but when the partitioner in windows appears only partition part of the drive, leave the rest untouched, ubuntu will then use this and setup the dual boot for you10:06
cabarostoki: check http://www.virtualbox.org/10:06
ActionParsnipOriWB: cubase gets a gold rating in appdb: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=11871&iTestingId=2927310:06
nic1Cybersplice, so .dsc file doen't it have the souce code of the package?10:07
OriWBActionParsnip: thanx alot10:07
cabarostoki: virtualbox is pretty straight forward, it has a simple gui10:07
cabaroanyone know, if virtualbox supports firewire?10:08
ActionParsnipOriWB: install windows first, makes life easier10:08
OriWBActionParsnip: gotcha10:08
ActionParsnipcabaro: i'd ask in #vbox10:08
cabarook, just thought if someone had a yes or no answer10:08
cybersplicenic1: All i know is that some of my cameras produce .dsc files and fill them with metadata for importing images into Nikon software. Source files are usually .c i think, but i'm not a developer. :)10:10

theallanHello all, I'm having an issue with ubuntu 9.04 which I'm hoping someone might be able to help me with. Basically the issue is with either the ekiga or twinkle softphones - they both freeze when a call is 'hung up'. This occurs on 9.04 with all the latest patches, and on the 9.04 live cd12:40
tavastiazlon, yes, if that latest mdadm command did not give any error message12:40

Aaron_Wiener-Blotavasti: i haven't done anything that has to do with partitions except for running gparted a while ago12:40

Aaron_Wiener-Bloits in one of the Tab options12:40
azlontavasti, this is everything starting from the first /proc/mdstat http://pastebin.com/d19cbfc8c12:41
Aaron_Wiener-Blotavasti:  but i typed boot in, and i need a kernel12:41
azlontavasti, bah, i did the command wrong for adding... hold on let me try again12:41

Balsaqsome tomes when i do the /join # (channel) it simply doesn't do anything? i just watched it not work about 5 times in arow?12:42

hunney_buns@ zwamkat  now the problem is solved12:42
tavastiazlon, you had extra whitespace, '-- add' is different from '--add'12:42
hunney_bunsdo not know how though12:42
Balsaqoh i see the update mgr may be interefering?12:42
azlontavasti, just did it without the space and it says mdadm: /dev/sdg1 not large enough to join array12:43
Aaron_Wiener-Blotavasti: I'm sorry i dont understand the question. I dont have a partition12:43
tavastiazlon, strange. anything said in 'dmesg'12:44

machits something got to do with settings12:57
Aaron_Wiener-Blotavasti: thanx a lot12:57
bazhangazlon, you may be correct12:57
Blank__it could be something to do with the process in question temporarily freezing, and ubuntu darkening the frozen window12:58
fbianconiCrAzYoNi: by the way, you shouldnt let anyone to write to your server, especially not in a cgi-bin directory12:58
Blank__i know mine does that when firefox chews through too much ram12:58
bazhangmach, when you say 'your os goes fast' what do you mean, ie please give a clear example12:58
tavastiAaron_Wiener-Blo, you're welcome12:58
Halitechmach, settings should not cause the screen to go dark and then bright again unless the power cord is disconnecting and reconnecting and its dropping to ac power12:58
