What didn't get installed, or what can I look for?00:21
canthus13foofish: Fah. that was too simple. :)00:21
foofishcanthus13: :)00:21
ReVoLt112i switches already to 96 dpi but not all windows are visible till yet^^00:21
foofishReVoLt112: no. but you can probably drag the windows around so you can still read them and interact with them00:22
dragonirssi doesn't reconnect automatically. What settings should i look for?00:22
ZykoticK9tbx I've got a friend with a Dell laptop who has had similar issues - I know for a while he had to boot into Windows enable the wireless card then reboot back into Ubuntu.  Good luck man.00:22

ReVoLt112problem ist that some windows are to big for this workaround00:22

fccfmo0nykit: you are trying to update from Hardy to Karmic ... Impossible, and 28-15 is depricated ... do sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade before running initramfs updater00:24
ZykoticK9tbx, I really wish I could talk to him "right now" cause he's gotten his wireless working pretty well now (after jumping through a lot of hoops), i also believe that he switched over to using WICD? or some such alternative Wireless Manager app - don't know the specific obviously.00:24
dragonfoofish: it's currently "server_reconnect_time = 5min"00:24
ReVoLt112*g* well thats easy, thanks a lot :D00:25

theooi am trying to install moodle.. but when i create a directory on my apache server moodle and try to open it from browser i get 404.. :/00:59
LordDarthThanks funkyHat01:00
funkyHatLordDarth: :)01:00
usser_theoo, well did you set your DocumentRoot properly, who owns the folder? what are the permissions?01:01
skylar_Another stupid question due to some tinkering I accidentally removed the wireless network monitor from the bar, and I can't find it in the add to panel section01:01
usser_skyla_, alt+f2 and nm-applet?01:01
theooskylar_ i tried to change the permisions to 777 but same again.. when i create a new folder 'unknown' and point it with my browser i get it open ..01:02
kilo *cry* it was bound to happen.... made ubuntu crash for the first time...01:02
skylar_huh ?01:02
kiloalthough it was more an underpwered machine's fault than the OS itself.01:03
mo0nykitIdleOne, the problem was with the /var/lib/initramfs-tools. The directory contains text files pertaining to all the initrd's that you have installed. Deleting the useless initrd's (those whose kernels have been uninstalled) would be safe.01:03
usser_theoo, linux is case sensitive u sure you dont have some capital letters somewhere01:03
fccfskylar_: pkill gnome-panel ... should reset it ... it technically supposed to be there01:03
theoousser_ yeas i am sure.. i can open any folder from my browser.. but not the folders with name moodle ..01:03
IdleOnemo0nykit: good to know. glad you figured it out01:04
usser_theoo, huh, well thats weird01:04
skylar_fccf sorry I have no idea what you even mean by pkill, I've been on ubuntu for a maximum of 20 minutes, but eventually I'll figure it out01:04
mo0nykitIdleOne, thanks to the people at ubuntu+101:04
theoousser_ chown -R apache:apache ... does this mean something to make problem with it?01:05
fccfskylar_:  open a terminal .. Applications>Accessories>Terminal ... type ... pkill gnome-panel >enter01:05
kiloOk guys, well thank you all for your help thus far...  WoW is working, but it only gives me the option of 3360 x 1050 resolution (which is the resolution of both my monitors in twinview) any idea how I can force other resolutions into the selection via the video card settings? I'm sure if I can, I can set WoW to run in window-maximized mode and that should solve the whole issue.01:05
usser_theoo, i think its www-data not apache01:05
theoousser_ so u have any suggestions to fix that?01:06
usser_theoo, chown -R www-data /folder && chmod -R 777 /folder01:06
theoousser_ i will give it a try.. thnx01:07
skylar_:S Nothing01:07
ZykoticK9kilo, option 1) use nvidia setting to disable one monitor then start the game 2) config you xorg.conf with a NULL setting to automatically disable one monitor when an app asks for 1680x1050.01:07
kilooh! and I posted my xorg.conf here: http://pastebin.com/m4dc392ad01:08
ade2_i think i saw that the "official ubuntu server book" was creative commons.  does that mean it can be downloaded somewhere?01:08
fccfskylar_ give me a few minutes and I will see if I can help you get it working again .. please put my name at the beginning when speaking with me01:08
theoousser_ i get chown: `www-data': invalid user..01:09
kiloZykoticK9: Thank you. I thought about that, but I'm wanting to run Wow in windowed mode. it's not requesting 1680x1050, ubuntu is saying that 3360x1050 is the only resolution available to it... make sense?01:09
fccfGoto System>Administration>Network, .. see what we get there01:09
usser_theoo, are u using ubuntu?01:09
fccfskylar_: ^^^^ duoh01:09
skylar_fccf, cool will do.  No worries or anything I typically learn by screwing things up and having to fix them  lol01:10
funkyHattheoo: 404 is not found, if it were a permissions issue the error would be something else01:10
kiloI know one other work-around is to have 2 separate X Screens going, but when I tried that, Compiz freaked out on me.01:11
fccfskylar_: and sometimes we have to break something to get it to work ... so if necessarry you may want to come here and ask questions, or discribe what is going on so that we may better assist you01:11
ZykoticK9kilo, can you get into the game and set a resolution?  can you temporarily turn off one monitor with nvidia-settings and get into the game?  you need to know what resolution WoW wants before we can configure your xorg to match the settings.01:11
theoofunkyHat so what do you think the problem is?01:11
* fccf likes breaking things ( and being able to fix them )01:11
ZykoticK9kilo, or turn turn this Windows mode on!01:11
skylar_fccf,  there is no "network" only network tools.01:11
usser_theoo, hm, strange. i just created a folder in my wwwroot didnt change any permissions and it works01:12
funkyHattheoo: that your server is not looking in the right place. Have you checked the logs to see where it is looking when you try to access localhost/moodle (or whatever)?01:12
skylar_Shows devices, traceroute, portscan ect01:12
vgambitjust installed ubuntu server 9.04 on an old pc thinking I can host media on it, but it only shows a terminal and I'm kind of overwhelmed01:13
kiloZykoticK9: Sorry, I thought I mentioned it: the game is not requesting resolutions. It asks the OS what resolutions are available. Unbuntu is returning that only the resolution 3360x1050 is available (which is way too wide). That's the resolution of both my monitors. I need to find a way to provide 1680x1050 as a resolution to the game, seeing as it's the one requesting from the OS what resolutions are available.01:13
vgambitare there any programs to let me access it with an x server?01:14
carlosquesovgambit: you might want ton install the desktop version01:14
funkyHatvgambit: you can install ubuntu-desktop which will install the normal ubuntu packages over the top01:14
ZykoticK9kilo, then you have no choice but to use nvidia-settings, disable one monitor then start the game!01:14
carlosquesodang it funkyhat you type faster than me01:14
vgambitfunkyHat, that sounds like what I'm looking for01:14
ipatrolWhat's root-system-bin?01:14
fccfskylar_: run sudo network-admin ... in your terminal01:14
vgambitsudo apt-get ubuntu-desktop?01:14
AssemblyHallHello everybody....01:15
ZykoticK9sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop <-- corrected01:15
funkyHatvgambit: almost. sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop ;)01:15

vgambitah, close01:15
carlosquesoHi Assembly Hall...welcome...do you have a question?01:15
kiloZykoticK9: are you sure there's no way to modify xorg.conf to reflect a different resolution?01:15
vgambitI'll just jot that down for now... my next problem will be hooking it up to the internet01:15
AssemblyHallneed some ubuntu tutorials or ebooks01:16
funkyHattheoo: right, and what about `ls /var/www` -- what does that tell you?01:16
vgambitprobably gonna end up using a long ethernet cable01:16
skylar_fccf command not found, ( I tried twice, I found this on ubuntu forums worth trying - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=24188901:16
funkyHatvgambit: that is the best solution for a server machine anyway :)01:16
vgambitfunkyHat, it's in the other room!01:16
robuntuI'm trying to install ndiswrapper, and when I give the make command I get this; http://pastebin.com/m1186313401:16
AssemblyHallalso want to learn how i can turn my pc into a web server...01:16
vgambitthe router is in this room01:16
funkyHatvgambit: right, but wireless is slow and unreliable01:17
skylar_fccf My bad I already looked in the add panel section for network monitor01:17
funkyHatvgambit: putting in a proper cable for it will save you frustration in the long run :)01:17
keltoris there an easy way to let's say reset ubuntu back to just what's in ubuntu-standard01:17
vgambitI can probably get a 50 footer from school anyway.01:17
funkyHatkeltor: reinstall01:17
kiloAnd I'd rather just create a second X Screen instead of disabling one of them.... seems a shame to waste all that good monitor space   ;)01:17
ZykoticK9kilo, yes - but you'd have to switch to that resolution prior to starting the game each time (so you might as well just use nvidia-settings gui)  -- if this was a "normal" game with a resolution that could be selected, then there is a way to use xorg to automajically turn off one monitor when a game calls that resolution -- but if the game relies on what xorg's resolution is -> you gotta use nvidia-settings...  sorry to break bad news.01:18
vgambitonce I install the ubuntu-desktop package, it'll "just work" when I reboot, right?01:18
vgambitor will there have to be some terminal command to see a gui?01:18
skylar_fccf, I have it fixed01:18
keltorfunkyHat: do i mean some other way - it's a remote server, so cannot do that01:18
skylar_  I hope01:18
fccfskylar_: good good01:18

skylar_It at least shows signal strength I'll see if I can manage connections XD01:19
funkyHatvgambit: don't even need to reboot, it'll probably just start up by itself. if not you can run sudo invoke-rc.d gdm start01:19
skylar_fccf,  Thanks.01:19
kiloZykoticK9: I see... insteresting. I think I'm just going to try to create a second X Screen then, without having Compiz scream at me   :P01:19
funkyHatkeltor: ah ok. if you can remember the packages that you specifically installed, uninstall them using aptitude (not apt-get), it will auto-remove stuff that is no longer depended on by anything01:20
vgambitalright. the main reason I wanted to set that pc up as a server was so that I could keep an image of one of my laptop's partitions01:20
Pookywow, there's a lot of people in this channel O.o01:20
vgambitbasically wanted to do a network backup/restore server, but for mac os x01:20

robuntuI'm trying to install ndiswrapper, and when I give the make command I get this; http://pastebin.com/m1186313401:20
ZykoticK9atari2600a, easiest solution is use (right)ctrl+SysRq (print screen)+k instead01:20
keltorfunkyHat: so does apt-get autoremove01:20
ZykoticK9atari2600a, also see http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-enable-ctrl-alt-backspace-in-ubuntu-jaunty.html01:21
atari2600azykdoesn't appear to work01:21

PookyCan someone recommend an application for downloading torrent rss feeds, like for television shows and such. I'd like something console based that can run as a daemon in the background.01:21
ZykoticK9atari2600a, well I'm not foolish enough to test on my computer, lol01:21
funkyHatkeltor: ah :). I also saw someone mention a tool for removing un-depended-on packages, but I can't remember the name of it. Sounded like it would list any packages that are not depended on01:22
LordDarthhttp://img185.imageshack.us/img185/670/screenshotp.png <-- sexiest ubuntu desktop you ever saw ;)01:22

PookyLordDarth: compiz/beryl/whatever for true transparency on the terminal and stuff?01:23
firsthay guys my friend just installed unbuntu and his sound dose not work what do01:23
PookyLordDarth: you should put together a write up detailing how you got such a sexy desktop, people love that kind of stuff01:23
kiloso speaking of which: anyone had any luck running two separate X Screens and successfully getting Compiz to run 2 Cubes?01:23
myronquick question, kill should work no matter which tty session you are on correct?01:23
unopfunkyHat,  aptitude can do that - but i guess you're looking for "deborphan"01:23
bastidrazorLordDarth: you should check out cairo-dock.. it is a bit flashier than AWN01:23
robuntuI'm trying to install ndiswrapper, and when I give the make command I get this; http://pastebin.com/m1186313401:23

zebastiani installed lxde and i am wondering whether i can run xfwm4 whilst login on01:26
myronunop: so If I am logged into a user account on the graphical tty session (tty7) and I have a program not responding, I could switch to tty1 and login to that same user session and type kill (process number) and it should terminate the given process.01:26
LordDarthDisabled scroll bar is nice bastidrazor01:26
Lenin_Catfoofish, because it began happening after I upgraded to ext401:26
unopmyron, is that a question? if so, yes01:26
foofishLenin_Cat: oh. i never did that.01:26
foofishLenin_Cat: guess i never will, now.01:26
myronunop: hmmm i tried that, and got no errors when killing the process. I even tried sudo. However, when I switched back to TTY7 the process was still running.01:28
bastidrazorLordDarth: i actually don't have toolbars either. i use alt+button1 to move windows.. alt+b2 for a drop down menu and alt+middle button for resizing windows01:28
LordDarthNice ;)01:28
foofishmyron: kill -9 it01:28
unopmyron, foofish - no don't use -901:28
foofishunop: why not? he tried killing it normally and failed01:28
unopmyron,  some processes ignore a TERM signal - you might want to try kill -2 and kill -101:29
SerlaPeople of Ubuntu please help! I really got bored of ubuntu and this command (sudo mount -t vboxsf -o loop ubshare /home/jmd/winshare) says (ubshare: No such file or directory)01:29
unopfoofish, because -9 should only ever be used as a last resort - it's not a clean termination01:29
PookyI'm trying to find something like http://www.rulecam.net/ted/ but command line based01:30
Pookysomething I can just put a file of rss feeds together for01:30
foofishunop: ok. but kill is the same as kill -2, no?01:30
unopfoofish, no,  see kill -l01:30
myronunop: I guess I need to read the man-page for kill again. Thanks for the help foofish and unop.01:30

foofishsddfdf: that's odd. i've no idea, then01:36
wergeldWhen i fire up ifconfig it shows the correct static IP i set up plus the loopback client. but, again, in the network manager it shows no connections.01:36

myroncyberworm: when you say without booting windows first, are you running ubuntu as a virtual machine?02:06

logicporthow could i fix it02:12
iaindaltonI should check the output of aptitude update02:12
fccfjm2: thats /join #ubuntu-chicago02:12
myroncyberworm: that doesn't make any since at all. when a computer is rebooted, it clears all of the cache that is stored in the RAM. It would also clear the cache of your video card. Its like you are starting out with a blank slate on both...02:12

Cyberwormmyron, I know that it doesn't make sense, but it's just how it is :-/. Maybe I should note that I'm using a notebook. Maybe it's a PowrePlay problem02:15

Harrison_Bergeroxsensors to be exact but ill use any app that will work02:19
Templar_XionAfter doing a force quit via the gui on an app and attempting sudo kill (pid) the app is still running in top. What else can you do to kill an app? It's a gui app that is no longer visible, but the memory is still taken up.02:20
Harrison_Bergeroi only have temp1 and temp2 showing02:20

Templar_XionZykoticK9, woot, now to man page to see what that does02:21
VivaVistaThanks ZykoticK902:21
ttreakeLjL, is the auto-hide feature called "auto-hide"?02:21
genewitchrgov1: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/SMB-HOWTO.html02:21

bazhangpaul_s, you would have gotten an older version than the wine repos provides02:22

rgov1genewitch:  thanks i'll check into it02:22
Templar_XionZykoticK9, I see that -9 is sorta like a kill all but the man page doesn't describe what it does02:22
paul_si see02:22
ZykoticK9Templar_Xion, you can also use "killall -9 nameofapp"02:22
genewitchrgov1: you have to run two servers (one is a nameserver the other is the actual samba server); configure them, and start them, and that's about it02:22
LjLttreake: it's definitely going to be in the panel's options though.02:22
VivaVistaoh :(02:22
iaindaltonttreake: right click on panel; properties02:22
Cyberwormeither I try reinstalling Ubuntu or I'll just have to live with that problem02:22

Guest15917I got a question for Evolution E-Mail Client... How do you minimize it to the Indicator tray, Not the task bar... and Also how do you have it send you a Notification when you receive a new E-Mail, A notification like you do when someone writes you with pigeon, or when you volume turns up and down...02:25
myroncyberworm: you mentioned that fps from a game indicated the problem with the graphics card drivers.... are you running it under wine or is it ported to linux?02:25

ZykoticK9Guest15917, i think you wait until 9.10, pretty sure some of your requests are implemented :)02:26
Guest15917ZykoticK9: I am using 9.1002:27
Cyberwormit's ported to linux. Okay it's not a big game, it's just Extreme Tucracer. But the fps difference is pretty huge (according to that fps display there)02:27
Templar_XionZykoticK9, happen to know a 'how to enable PAE on current kernel' site?02:27
bazhangu0606465, then you have your answer; ##hardware and #ubuntu-offtopic are good further avenues of exploration on hardware questions02:27
genewitchrgov: it's nmbd and smbd if memory serves02:27
vgambitthis ubuntu-desktop package is taking pretty long to install02:27
ZykoticK9Guest15917, then post your same question in #ubuntu+1 you'll get better results :)  good luck.02:27

myroncyberworm: I have had problems with tuxracer too. alot of the linux games aren't polished, they do have problems. If you want to use it as a gaming PC, try running windows games under wine.02:29
CyberwormI can't even get Steam to install under wine :-/02:30
carlosquesohey...has anybody managed to get netlix to work?  I used the user-agent-switcher to convince it that I was using windows, and installed moonlight...but it doesn't like my silverlight version02:31

rgovgenewitch:  i pasted that but for instance /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions (nor /etc/init.d/functions) doesnt exist02:32
ZykoticK9Cyberworm, you might want to look into "PlayOnLinux" they've got Steam in there list...02:32

sabathow can I probe[maybe not the right term] a partition to see what fs it is?02:36
genewitchrgov: oh, evidently i led you astray. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpSamba02:37
ZykoticK9Harrison_Bergero, "usually" if your mouse still moves you can use CTRL+ALT+F1 to get to a console, where you can log in an run "top" to see if a particular program is hung.  Alternatively you could restart GDM from the terminal with "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart".02:37
sabatgot my hands on an old server, doesn't boot. but I got it booted off a ubuntu live install.02:37
Cyberwormwell, I better start backupping my files if I want to reinstall Ubuntu02:37

=== caplink811-log is now known as caplink811_log
sabatI am kindof assuming it might have a raid, altho to be honest I didn't actually open the case yet, seeing that it's missing the key.[that's going to be a project in itself]02:39
genewitchsabat: if it's a hardware raid that's transparent to the OS, regardless of the OS02:39
genewitchsabat: also it would tell you that while booting. if it's a software raid - good luck, you need to know what OS was originally on it and how it was raided to get the info back off.02:40
ZykoticK9sabat, genewitch i wish RAID was totally transparent to the OS - it isn't though.  your os needs the drivers to talk to any raid cards -- ubuntu desktop live cd, is not ideal for that i'd think.  perhaps the alternate cd, or server would be more appropriate.02:41
visik7are there ubuntu certified laptop ?02:41
genewitchZykoticK9: if the raid card is a real raid card, the HDD shouldn't show up as like sda and sdb in linux02:42
ZykoticK9visik7, Ubuntu doesn't "certify" hardware the same way Microsoft does -- it just tries to support as much hw as possible :)02:42

afeijoDoonz: probably03:17
Doonzthats the proper way to have it set to run a script?03:17
gl1d3madcamper: wine is not meant to be used for gaming03:17
ZykoticK9Harrison_Bergero, yes figure out how to do all the ctrl+alt+f1 thing, log in and run the command top and it will show you what is using the most CPU power - perhaps this will tell you what is causing the problem.03:17
afeijoMadcamper: nah03:17
canthus13Madcamper: cedega is wine with tweaks.  You can tweak most stuff to run under wine just as well as under cedega.03:17
Dr_WillisMadcamper: wine or one of its vairants yes. See the wine app database for info on specific games03:17
afeijoDoonz: to be safer, use sh before /home...03:18
afeijothats what I do03:18
Madcamperok, just wanting to run Counter-strike source03:18

ubottuMadcamper: The Wine Application DB is a database of applications and help for !Windows programs that run under !WINE: http://appdb.winehq.org - Join #winehq for application help03:18
canthus13Madcamper: Wine should run it just fine.03:18
pawani have nvidia card but it is not getting detected in hardware drivers03:18
P1roDr_Willis:  that is not the same as uneetbooting ?03:18
gl1d3madcamper: it's an old game. it should work well03:18
ZykoticK9gl1d3, Madcamper wine is GREAT for gaming03:18
LordDarthWine is pretty good thees days i concur03:19
gl1d3it is? i thought that wine was not meant to be an emulator03:19
LordDarthI didn't say emulator03:19
ZykoticK9gl1d3, Wine Is Not an Emulator ha ha03:19
DigitalKiwiheard there is way better support from crossover games/linux than cedega/wine03:19
P1roDr_Willis:  you mean the one who came with ubuntu? well i done it but persistent changes are NOT working :(03:19
canthus13gl1d3: It isn't.  It's runtime files that enable windows software to run on linux.03:19
LordDarthBut it is good at running windows programs. I even run a trading terminal in it.03:20
Harrison_BergeroZykotick9....well nothing special running.  CPU usage fluctuates from 8 to 70% for an app called compiz03:20
gl1d3canthus13: that explains a lot03:20
canthus13DigitalKiwi: Crossover games is wine as well.03:20
robert__will array make my msi laptop better?03:20
DigitalKiwiit's a fork03:20
DigitalKiwithat just happens to send some patches to wine03:20
canthus13DigitalKiwi: Nah. They contribute most of their stuff back to wine eventually.03:20
robert__whacha mean a fork?03:20
Harrison_Bergeroi have IRC app running, sensors, xeyes.  thats all03:20
robert__oh ok03:20
Dr_WillisP1ro:  you did tell it to make a persistant save file?  There may be ways to add it -  depending on what you do some changes may NOT get saved properly also.03:20
ZykoticK9Harrison_Bergero, is it frozen right now though?03:20
Doonzafeijo: if i added a job 30 * * * * echo "Scripts Ran insertdate"  what would i use for insertdate to show the date and time it ran?03:20
kermiti cant find xroach :/03:20
canthus13robert__: A fork is where some devs don't like where the general project is going, and take the source code and start a new project.03:20
ZykoticK9Harrison_Bergero, you have to try doing THIS when the problem happens!03:21
robert__canthus13, oh ok thanks03:21
DigitalKiwia fork is an eating utensil!03:21
canthus13robert__: Case in point: Pidgin was forked over an argument about whether or not the input window should resize itself.03:21
robert__will array kernel make my msi laptop better?03:21

IzyuI need help, What is a Protocol and Channel in Data Connections?03:21
Dr_WillisDoonz:  use  $(date) or similer at the end.03:21
DoonzDr_Willis: will that add a time as well?03:21
Dr_WillisDoonz:  bash basics man...  it runs whatever command is in $()03:22
Harrison_BergeroZykotick9....well, not comletely random.....with firefox or playing a movie file.03:22
gl1d3downloading bootcamp now03:22
Dr_WillisDoonz:  find the proper command to do the time/date  (and yes date can proberly do it)(03:22
canthus13DigitalKiwi: Fork sounds better than spoon.03:22
Madcamperanyway to stretch the descriptino or text under an icon like on the desktop? ex. make the text fix the size of the icon?03:22
DigitalKiwiDoonz: http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/03:23
P1roDr_Willis: well i told to use the left space on the pen drive to his files03:23
ZykoticK9Harrison_Bergero, from the console you can actually kill applications as well, then potentially switch back to GUI and everything will be working again - you just need to determine what is causing the problem (which unfortunatly is NOT the easy part)  Good luck to you.03:23

VivaVistaIf I reinstall Windows Vista from Recovery CDs will it automatically delete the Linux Partition and restore the MBR from GRUB?03:24
robert__i tried xubuntu but had trouble getting dvd discs to play03:25
P1roVivaVista: yes03:25
robert__and its not as configurable03:25
MenZaHarrison_Bergero: Nope, 'kill' takes a process ID (PID). You want killall 'appname' to kill an app by name03:25
ZykoticK9Harrison_Bergero, "killall nameofprogram" get nameofprogram by using "top" or "ps -aux"03:25
robert__will array kernel make my msi laptop better?03:25
Viz_Ruhi, I can't seem to find my windows computers in places->network->windows network,  I've tried doing "connect to server" and typing in my computers name, but it says "Cannot display location 'smb://..etc.' Failed to mount Windows Share"... any suggestions?03:25
Dr_WillisP1ro:  thats EXACTLY the thing that has issues. - i had to edit the rc.local script to  copy over a proper xorg.conf  then launch gdm. last i made a persistant save/usb.03:25
DigitalKiwihtop is 100 times better than top03:25
Dr_WillisP1ro:  see if it saves somthing simple like th eusers settings/wallpaper.03:25
LordDarthHtop eh, i'll have to try it.03:26
ZykoticK9Viz_Ru, can you ping your windows box?03:26
DigitalKiwiit even has an integrated sigsend thingy, so you can kill a process easily (push F9)03:26
robert__does anyone use array?03:26
P1roDr_Willis: well i did change the wifi pass and add flash pluing to firefox but none of those are working03:26
Viz_RuZykoticK9, how would I go about pinging it in ubuntu?03:26
Dr_WillisP1ro:  basically i made a proper xorg.conf, disabled gdm, from auto-launching, then in rc.local. copied the xorg.conf to the right place, and again from rc.local launched gdm.03:26
ZykoticK9DigitalKiwi, in top you can press k to kill something03:26
Harrison_BergeroMenZa....Zykotick9....thanks.  I'll be back in here after my next freeze.  Hope it wont be anytime soon03:26
DigitalKiwihttp://omploader.org/vMjgyag at the top in this screen03:26
Dr_WillisP1ro:  see if it rembers stuff like your wallpaper/settings as a test03:27
ZykoticK9Viz_Ru, open a terminal and type "ping IPADDRESSOFWINDOWSCOMPUTER"03:27
DigitalKiwiZykoticK9: but you still have to give it a PID03:27
LordDarthIts nice DigitalKiwi03:27
P1roDr_Willis: so it should be bbetter if i just install the system on the pendrive ?03:27
ZykoticK9DigitalKiwi, yes it's PID not name (or is htop menu?)03:27

KnifeySpooneyHi, I just rebooted after installing updates in karmic, but now my machine is unbootable after being tossed a bootchart error during boot. After the bootchart error is a cannot mount filesystem error. Then the comp reboots. Right now i'm using a liveUSB. How can I uninstall a package in my harddisk installation of Ubuntu from a liveCD?03:43
=== The-BeastMaster is now known as g4br13l
bazhangrobert__, the array kernel is not a Ubuntu product03:43
ZykoticK9KnifeySpooney, ask same question in #ubuntu+103:43
robert__bazhang, i know but its a question i don't know the answer to and its for Ubuntu03:44
KnifeySpooneyZykoticK9: Thanks, I'm already in there but I figured that this question is not really about karmic but Ubuntu in general. Do you know of a way to uninstall bootchart from a livecd?03:44
yoophglupthanks everyone awn avant is perfect, now if i can get it to load on my second display. you guys are great.03:44
ZykoticK9KnifeySpooney, nope sorry03:44
bazhangrobert__, as such, some have success; you may wish to talk the makers (they generally are on eeeuser.com forum or #eeepc )03:44
Ghnuberathdo you need to uninstall it? can you just disable it?03:45
robert__bazhang, i have an msi netbook, its an atom processor so i'm assuming it will work the same03:45

ecin_It asked me if i want to accept the third party driver, i acceped and restarted03:45
ecin_now it says wlan interface disconnected03:46

ZykoticK9elevenCA1, try it in Opera Chromium first if you have them installed already.  There is a way to fake the headers in Firefox if that's what your using.04:17

GhnuberathRegressLess: haha.  I actually have an intel netbook myself, and it's quite snappy.  But there was a major regression in the intel driver in jaunty which slows everything down04:22

mordocaiHello, someone recently showed me a feature in Microsoft Word 2007, and i was wondering if an equivalent is available in openoffice. The feature allowed word to tell you when you were using passive voice, help correct style, and similar things that aren't really directly spelling and grammar errors. Does anyone know if openoffice can do this?04:29
Ghnuberathmushuukyou: System -> preferences -> keyboard shortcuts04:29
RegressLessDr_Willis: no, I was just going to edit is some old school game scenes for fun04:29
DigitalKiwihttp://omploader.org/vMjgyag this is my desktop, RegressLess (and it's not ubuntu, either)04:29
mushuukyouGhunberath, Is that something that everyone needs to tend to in order to do the cube thing?  I just installed ubuntu tonight.04:30
Ghnuberathmordocai: i'm don't think OpenOffice has any NLP that advanced.  or that it's really a priority for them04:30
Ghnuberathmushuukyou: no, not generally.  it should work right away.04:30
mushuukyouyea somethin'gs up.  I rebooted too.04:30

OrpheusOk, so I need to print something quickly, and didn't have a printer set up - I plugged in my moms old hp 7660 series printer via USB - the system detected it and it seems to have installed the dirvers, but no matter what I do, it doesn't seem to actually "connect" to the printer in that it won't print out the things in the queue04:36
mushuukyouWell, I did that, but now my screen is kinda sunken into my monitor.. I might have to reboot or something.but I think that turned stuff on04:36
mushuukyouMy windows do cool stuff04:37
Ghnuberathmushuukyou: that does sound like it's turned on.  haha.04:37
Dr_WillisOrpheus:  some hp printers need the hpoj, or hplip tools also insstalled.04:37
ZykoticK9Orpheus, verify that whatever your printing from is going to CUPS04:37
mushuukyouYea, I think I need to reboot.. visually everything is messed up04:37
Ghnuberathmushuukyou: then there's nothing wrong with compiz or your computer.  it must just be a configuration thing.04:37
Ghnuberathmushuukyou: the cube will work.  just keep playing with it.  make sure the wall is disabled as well.04:37

Dr_Willisinnociv:  you mean keep  /stuff/file   but have the 'contents' of 'file' be blank?04:43
ZykoticK9Res2216firestar, it's either a graphics card driver issue (you need to install better drivers) OR it's a monitor issue and it can be corrected with xorg04:43

GhnuberathOrpheus: I don't quite remember, but I don't think ti was that difficult.  I believe you have to specify the printer from /dev (like /dev/usblp0) and the file you want to print (use a raw text file)04:45

Dr_Williskilo:  ive seen it depends on the game and program.. some badly written ones are stupid and dont follow the standards right.04:48
ZykoticK9Res2216firestar, do you have 3D support currently?  Does "$ glxinfo | grep direct" say Yes?  Can you run glxgears?  Basically that would all have to be TRUE, then it's just a monitor detection issue which could, if need be, manually put into an xorg.conf file - but you'd need to know the technical specs of your monitor.04:48
innocivah.. ill just delete them one at a time04:48
OrpheusGhnuberath:  I dont know if this is related, but when i use lsusb to scan my usb drives, i it shows my usb mouse, but not myusb printer....04:48

innocivit was just 5 things this time at least04:49
kiloDr_Willis: Well, I'm trying to play Wow and be able to browse the internet at the same time... unfortunately, WoW asks the OS what resolutions are available, and (with twinview enabled) the OS can only spit back 3360x 1050 (which is the resolution of BOTH monitors, side by side)04:49
innocivifit was more i guess i'd just remove them mkdir lmao04:49

mushuukyouit worked fine before when I had ubuntu on here04:49
Dr_Williskilo:  i normally just run it in a window that way i can just mouse over to the 2nd monitor to do the browsing.04:49
Dr_Williskilo:  thats what i do for LOTRO all the time04:50
kiloDr_Willis: I'd love to do that, but still run into the resolution problem04:50
Dr_Williskilo:  wow is setable  - you can just tell it what size window to use. or shouldbe able to..04:50
kiloDr_Willis: wow doesn't seem to have default resolutions built in04:50
Dr_Willisbeen ages since i last messed with WoW04:50
Res2216firestarZykoticK9, I both are true, and I know what resolutions, refresh rates, and color depths work on windows, so I'll try the xorg.conf04:51
Dr_Williskilo:  check the wine appdatabase, perhaps theres some wow configs you can tweak04:51
Ghnuberathmushuukyou: sorry, I'm out of ideas without seeing it for myself haha.  I'd just backup and nuke the ~/.compiz directory and try again04:51

d9500what is a good choice for a lightweight login manager to use on a fresh install of the LXDE desktop environment on top of a previously command-line only ubuntu installation? the gdm requires about 130 extra packages that i don't want to install just for a login manager.04:52
soreauGhnuberath: If you install an additional plugin(s), it will install to /.compiz. The settings are saved on different locations depending on whih backend you use04:52
kiloDr_Willis: unless there's a setting in xorg that I'm missing... I don't know if you can define resolutions there?04:52
ZykoticK9Res2216firestar, the xorg.conf is in /etc/X11/xorg.conf -- and the section you want is "Monitor" you'll need to add at least and appropriate HorizSync and VertRefresh lines -- be careful you can ruin your monitor this way!!!04:53
HorizonX1Ghnuberath: well, it's laggy, and compiz doesn't seem to want to work04:53
Dr_Williskilo:  You can.. but the game is just reading what the system is tellingit.. WoW has so many config options/files I bet theres one you can edit to set the default res.04:53
soreauHorizonX1: You need help getting compiz to work?04:53
GhnuberathHorizonX1: Jaunty had a huge regression in intel performance.  you need to revert your driver to the Intrepid version. worked for me on my netbook. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReinhardTartler/X/RevertingIntelDriverTo2.404:53
kilohmmm I'll look into it04:54

kiloDr_Willis: it sure would be nice to get back to twinview...04:54
ZykoticK9kilo, you do know that you can switch between twinview and single monitor in the same session using nvidia-settings and the Apply button right?04:55
Ghnuberathsoreau: that is really unfortunate.  sure makes it more difficult to reset.  I guess an aptitude purge and reinstall might do it?04:55
kiloZykoticK9: yes, you mentioned that before, but I'd really like to be able to browse the web, or otherwise use that second monitor.04:56
HorizonX1Ghnuberath: ok, trying it now04:56
soreauGhnuberath: I assume the intel driver will be much better in Karmic04:56
GhnuberathHorizonX1: it will remove your old intel driver.  you'll have to restart the computer04:56
ZykoticK9kilo well if you figure out how to run it in a windows instead of fullscreen you could do it.  Good luck.04:57
Ghnuberathsoreau: I believe they've got the UXA stuff working almost as well as EXA used to.04:57
soreauGhnuberath: For resetting compiz settings, you should always use ccsm>Preferences>Reset to Defaults04:57
Ghnuberathsoreau: see now that's just cool.  never saw that. thanks!04:57

nullr1I give up on my admin acc every webpage and evolution load fine. In the other accounts which the internet worked on 2 days ago now it loads random pages and any web search renders the dreaded "connection reset". So my new question is. My home folder is in a separate partition if I install the new beta and mount that partition as my home partition will all of my stuff still work?04:58
arielCoHello everyone.!  Xorg is reading the right settings for my Synaptics driver from the fdi policy file, but they aren't being honored. Any idea why? http://pastebin.com/d7b67e59904:58
kiloZykoticK9: it is easy to get it to run in a window. that's not the problem. the problem is the resolution. unlike normal games, wow asks the OS for the available resolutions and Ubuntu is only kicking back the total resolution of both twinview monitors.04:58
Ghnuberathsoreau: if you're curious about the progress of intel in karmic, phoronix has some good articles: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=intel_q309_flakes&num=104:58

JGodboutHey dudes. I have just installed Jaunty, and the sound is not working in Amarok 2 at all. I have installed the codecs, and sound is working in everything else (rhythmbox, pidgin, etc.)04:58
JGodboutAny ideas?04:58
ZykoticK9kilo, AHHH Light comes on.  No - I still gots nothing for ya.04:59
soreauGhnuberath: and finally, anywhere you see a yellow brown icon in ccsm, clicking it will reset that individual setting04:59
GhnuberathJGodbout: i don't have Amarok 2 myself, but it may be worth making sure that it's sound preferences are set to use PulseAudio04:59
GhnuberathJGodbout: instead of ALSA04:59
soreauGhnuberath: Err.. Yellow Browm icon04:59
Ghnuberathsoreau: haha, yeah i knew about that one ;)04:59
soreauGhnuberath: Yellow Broom* sorry04:59

kiloZykoticK9: where do I add those? at the end?05:02
Ghnuberathchalcedony: you probably need the Ubuntu Restricted Extras05:02
JGodboutGhnuberath: I can't actually find anywhere in Amarok 2 where I can change the sound device05:02
Guest36137any ideas anybody05:03
Ghnuberathchalcedony: you can find it in Add/Remove Applications05:03
chalcedonyGhnuberath, ok and?05:03
Guest36137im new at this05:03
ZykoticK9kilo, no!  - could you pastebin your xorg.conf?05:03
Guest36137what do i put into terminal05:03
JGodboutGhnuberath: I remember in Amarok 1.x I could change it, but I don't think I can in this. What should my sound settings be like (the ubuntu ones, not amarok)? I've been trying different combinations of ALSA/PulseAudio/AutoDetect etc.05:03
chalcedonyGhnuberath, do you know the name of something that will play them? i'm bad with guis05:04
GhnuberathJGodbout: I haven't actually used Amarok 2, so I'm not familiar with the preferences window.  You want it to be using PulseAudio under Jaunty05:04
GhnuberathGhnuberath: you can use pretty much any music player.  Exaile, Amarok, VLC, MPlayer are all good choices05:04
Guest36137okay, who can help me05:04
Ghnuberathchalcedony: Oops, sent that to myself. you can use pretty much any music player.  Exaile, Amarok, VLC, MPlayer are all good choices05:04
GhnuberathJGodbout: I'd be surprised if Autodetect didn't default to pulseaudio, but it may be worth explicitly setting it to use PulseAudio and seeing if it works then.05:05
kilohow do I pull up an old pastebin?   :P05:05
GhnuberathJGodbout: also, it may be worth trying Amarok on its own (with no browsers or other sound-using applications open) to see if it plays.  Logging out and in again should knock out anything that could interfere.05:06
GhnuberathJGodbout: if it works under those circumstances, I'd say that it's definitely using ALSA instead of pulse05:06
GhnuberathJGodbout: or that you don't have the codec for the file you're trying to play ;) haha05:06
JGodboutNah, I got all the codecs05:06
GhnuberathJGodbout: then the pulse thing is still my best guess :)05:07
GhnuberathJGodbout: sorry I can't be of more help.   The new GUI in Amarok 2 - and having the KDE libs in my memory all the time - kinda made me want to hurl so I switched to Exaile.05:07

MqueueJeruvy>> would you like me to pvt you the message i'm getting to have an idea ?06:01
JeruvyMqueue: ah, then my guess it to run recovery mode, press escape during a fresh (re)boot and select recovery options, that should get you a root shell06:02
Mqueue<Jeruvy>> shit i'm scared to reboot now that will kill the PC completely lol06:02
JeruvyMqueue: not at all06:03

JeruvyMqueue: no worries.  try the recovery.  You can't fubar it any worse now :)06:04
Mqueue<Jeruvy>> so basically u're saying is that i should restart and select recovry mode instead of booting from live CD06:04
wangside137Hey there .. I'm the sysadmin for a beowulf cluster running Ubuntu, and I've recently been plagued by users overusing the LAN traffic (between the compute nodes and the head node).  The system will hang, and this always coincides with "nfsd" showing up at the top of "top".  Is it possible to decipher which users are hogging the network traffic??06:05

bullgard4lsusb detects my newly bought usb webcam which I have plugged in. What Ubuntu 8.04 program will  trigger that my webcam takes a phot shot? What Ubuntu program will show this photo shot on my display screen?06:07
DrGeniusthx for ur help, but i'm not reading a 13 chapter book with 4 appendices just to mount this crap06:07
JeruvyDrGenius: then I'd kill the raid0  and change it to JBOD06:08
DrGeniusthat might be feasible if i didn't have 600+gb of stuff with nowhere to back it up to06:09
JeruvyDrGenius: with 1TB USB's going for under $100, that isn't a problem :)06:09

DrGeniuswhy is linux so anal?06:10
JeruvyDrGenius: I think your trolling06:10

DrGeniusi think you're trolling if your best suggestion is to read that or spend $10006:11
shawn_DrGenius nobody is forcing you to use Linux it's not for everyone and if you don't like it then switch to another OS.  Either way there's no point complaining about it here.06:11
JeruvyDrGenius: because you are not factual, your pendantic06:11
Jeruvylike shawn_ said, the choice is yours.06:12
Mqueue<Jeruvy>> yippy it worked06:12
JeruvyMqueue: my man :)06:12
Mqueue<Jeruvy>>  ok that's good i think it didn't change the host file but instead change the hostname variable so that's why when i rebooted it came back to the same place thank god06:13
Mqueue<Jeruvy>>  thanks mate for the quick help ;)06:13
JeruvyMqueue: normally that isn't a dangerous command, but as you found it can be :)06:13

JeruvyMqueue: that is a dumb bug, you can either ignore it or 'add' an entry to set the hostname so apache is not complaining.06:17
Dalix8:'(I dont have sound06:17
soreau! audio | Dalix806:17
ubottuDalix8: 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 !MP306:17
Bookman_Krux0: Yeah, I thought I did it before but I cannot remember how.06:18
MqueueJeruvy>> okay that's fine...but when i try to do phpinfo(); it says u wana open the file ?? why is that i installed php thru apt-get06:18
Dalix8Ty I will try06:18
JeruvyMqueue: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apache2/+bug/35359406:18
soreauBookman_: Look into gdmsetup06:19
JeruvyMqueue: thats another issue, offhand I think your missing a package06:19
MqueueJeruvy>> hmm...basically i was trying to get php and mysql going instead of using xampp06:20
JeruvyMqueue: for details check out: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP06:20
MqueueJeruvy>> okay thx let me check that thx06:20
JeruvyMqueue: yw and good luck.06:20
Bookman_soreau: thanks, I will, but I'm actually looking into tightvnc at the moment.  I think it is what was looking for.  At least it appears to be on the surface.06:21
Dalix8Correct me if I am wrong, but I used to run freespire and I did not have any problems with the sound...  I believe that my hardware should also be  supported by UBUNTU correct?06:21
soreauBookman_: AFAIK, vnc can only login to an X session that is already running a vnc server. GDM has an option for remote login through gdmsetup IIRC06:21
MqueueJeruvy>> yea i read that post...i didn't say much about php5 installation and what it said i tried apprently the packages are there but the php is not linked with apache somehow06:21
JeruvyMqueue: your missing something check the package requirements06:22
Dalix8I have install all the updates properly06:23
Bookman_soreau: Well alright then.  You might have just saved me some time!  Thanks.06:23
Dalix8still not working06:23
Dalix8Music seems to be playing on the player but no sound :(06:24

xanguaMiki800: well i woult suggest create a partition to install linux06:28
soreauBookman_: Just type 'gksu gdmsetup' in your terminal then click on the Remote tab06:29
BilliardMiki800, you can run the command xkill then click on the install window, if you really need to kill it06:29
Miki800@xangua thanks for the tip, I will do that as soon as I finish checking out this simple safe way of using ubuntu without risk of destroying MBR or ntldr :)06:29
Miki800@Billiard thanks so much :)06:29

scunizijjmor5: there are notes on the difference planed.. there's always backend stuff you never really realize is there unless it interfears with somethign06:54
korin43jjmor5: When 9.10 comes out, the updater will prompt you to update, and it will be just like any other update, except bigger. I tested it, and it won't look noticeably different. The main change will be that all of your programs will be updated to more recent versions.06:54

FireCrotchabongile: try creating the file /etc/resolv.conf - that error message should go away08:26
abongileFireCrotch: I am new to linux, so I need a dummies guide to sorting out the problem: What would the file (/etc/resolve.conf) have to contain? Do I really need it, if yes why? Would it then solve my networking problem?08:29
icerootabongile: its containing your nameservers08:30
FireCrotchabongile: /etc/resolv.conf typically contains a line that gives the address of your nameserver08:30
icerootabongile: syntax is:   nameserver ip-adress-of-the-server08:31
FireCrotchabongile: If the file just plain doesn't exist, stuff breaks because it looks for that file.08:31
FireCrotchabongile: I assume that you're on a home network, in which case, the address that you should use is the IP of your router08:31
Dr_Willismy  /etc/resolv.conf08:32
Dr_Willisfor an example. It has 2 opendns entries.. and my home router.08:32
FireCrotchDr_Willis: Won't those two opendns entries just be ignored 99% of the time, since your router will consult your ISP's nameservers?08:33
FireCrotchDr_Willis: Unless your router is set up to use the OpenDNS servers08:34
Dr_WillisFireCrotch:  its set to use them also. :)08:34

alfatauhello, i'm trying to migrate my workbench from a windows xp platform to an ubuntu one. I'm looking for some applications wich can be an equivalent replacement of windows' ones. The actually most important are: MikTex and TeXnic Center and Windows Media Player (or another audio player wich supports fast playback without changing pitch). Can you advise some good app to me? thanks09:17

quellhorsthow do i make a usb stick bootable?10:07
icesmurfsystem: possibly an invalid partition table, or it's not formatted? does it show up ok in windows?10:07
icesmurfmores the point, are you use it's a "usb storage" device, and not an MFT device.10:08

icesmurfsystem: sudo gparted and see if it see's the sd[x] device of the usb storage you've connected10:11
Flannelleo: You shouldn't need proxy-chains for build-essential, unless you mean that you can't connect to the internet?  Do you still have your Ubuntu CD?10:12
leoFlannel: I have to use proxychains for resolving the names10:12
Flannelleo: resolving what names?10:12

KurtKrautpshr_, not exactly. You have to set HTTPS traffic to be forwarded withou passing thru squid10:37
icesmurfsee "man tune2fs"10:37
Chousukemnaines: are the drives of the same size? :/10:37
Chousukemnaines: the FS overhead depends on the size of the filesystem.10:37
=== MadMax is now known as Guest89369
icesmurfchous: it also depends on how the FS  has been initalised, different filesystems use different methods, most are tunable.10:37
BlouBloupw-toxic: then see datials, it will apperas all debug info10:38
mnainesicesmurf: But why would it store that stuff on the external backup drives...One drive is 150GB and is only reading 132GB available on an ext4 fs and the other is a 500GB drive reading 458GB available on ext410:38
icesmurfif it's ext2/3/4 you should be able to tune it with tune2fs10:38
pw-toxicBlouBlou, what is datials?10:38
grawitypw-toxic: I think he meant 'details'10:38
BlouBloupw-toxic: in repport an error10:38
Chousukemnaines: that's normal10:38
icesmurfmn: how is it supposed to know it's an external "backup" device? it's calculated automatically based on how the filesystem is going to be layed out on the physical media.10:39
icesmurfyou -can- reduce how much overhead it uses, by using tune2fs.10:39
pw-toxicBlouBlou, i cant find a help ;(10:39
mnainesChousuke: So that extra space is the partition table for those drives?10:39
pawanhow to install audacious10:39
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about audacious10:39
icesmurfmnaies; no its the filesystem sitting on top of the partitions.10:39
MrZehlHi there, I trashed my network stettings. :(10:40
BlouBloupw-toxic: at the right of nautilus, at the top of window10:40
mnainesicesmurf: What do you mean, exactly?10:40
pw-toxicBlouBlou, do you mean in the top gnome panel under system?10:40
pw-toxicBlouBlou, ah ok.. misunderstood :D10:40
MrZehlI was busy with connecting my BeBook with OepenInkpot  by ssh10:40
Chousukemnaines: making a filesystem on a drive is not free. the filesystem takes space too :)10:40
meatbuncan ubuntu implement IPsec VPN using ESP and 3DES AND run in tunnel mode (to protect IP header)?10:41
mnainesChousuke: But what exactly does it use that space for?10:41
icesmurfmn: so, when you create a "partition" what your doing is your telling the operating system in what places on the physical media it can write the filesystem to.10:41
Chousukemnaines: but in addition to that, usually the FS reserves some "emergency space" in case the filesystem ever fills up10:41
icesmurfcho: and for redundancy.10:41
Chousukemnaines: that's what you can tune.10:41
MrZehlSo I made a networkconnection in System/Preferences/Network Connections10:41
icesmurfand how many backup blocks, what sizes, how many inodes to actually have on the filesystem.10:42
icesmurffor example, if your going to only have a few very large files, you need less inodes.10:42
MrZehlBut then I couldn't connect to internet anymore. Deleting the connection I made didn't solve it.10:42
Chousuketune2fs -m 0.5 /dev/yourext3or4partition10:42
icesmurfif your going to have thousands and thousands of little files, you'll need more inodes, which will use up more "filesystem" space that you can't actually use.10:42
Chousuke... I wonder if it supports floats :P10:42
MrZehlAnybody knows  how to do that?10:42
icesmurfch: i've been maintaining for the last five years or so that the default mke2fs "emergency" space is to big.10:43
BlouBloupw-toxic: well, now if you wanna, you can report it to launchpad10:43
Chousukemnaines: and note that some of the space loss could also be due to manufacturers using SI prefixes and Linux using binary prefixes :/10:43
Fauchi95Hello! If I set a cronjob withe the user root on @reboot, it is done before the logincreen appears?10:44
MrZehlNothing changed in /etc/network/10:44
pw-toxicBlouBlou, i'll try to get some more information.. strangly at the moment it works .. my icons reappeared and nautilus doesnt crash anymore10:44
Chousukeie. it's not lost space. it just doesn't exist in the first place :)10:44
BlouBloupw-toxic: ok :)10:44
pw-toxicBlouBlou, ah now it does ;) ok ;))10:44
abongile1grawity: What I can do though is reboot and go into recovery mode, I drop into a terminal then. Could that help?10:44
mnainesChousuke: So this level of overhead is normal?10:45
MrZehlI meant /etc/network/interfaces10:45
icesmurfby default yes.10:45
Chousukemnaines: for example, 500GB is 465 GiB (what Linux calls GB)10:45
WhiteCrow1how can i send file in terminal to other pc in my network?10:45
mnainesChousuke: It says that, but then it also says out of that 465GB, 7.4GB are used10:46
icesmurfchous: gluck with explaining that one :D10:46
mnainesChousuke: Then Linux can only see the 458GB of free space10:46
Chousukemnaines: yeah, that's probably the "reserve" :/10:46
icesmurfalmost certainly the reserve.10:47
Bilgeicesmurf: so does dpkg -S, which is shorter ;p10:47
Chousukethough if it were 5%, it'd be more.10:47
Chousukeso it could be just the filesystem *necessary* data structures10:47
mnainesSo 7.4 is what percent of 465?10:47
icesmurfchos: probably a combination, i think that 'reserve' is calculated dynamically on filesystem creation now isnt it?10:48
Chousukeicesmurf: it used to be a set percentage10:48
Chousukebut that's probably been changed.10:48
icesmurfhmm i could be thinking solaris.10:49
Chousukeit seems you have 1.5% overhead10:49
Chousukethat could very well be just the filesystem, and not the space reserve :/10:49
icesmurfthe larger your filesystem, the more 'overhead' it has, so it'll scale up as you go higher in the GB's ..10:50
icesmurfi'd suggest you have a good read of the tune2fs manpage, and fiddle with it.10:50
braadspeethallo I wish to connect to the dutch version, please advise10:51
WhittAm I able to get help here with Ubuntu 9.10 audio?10:51
Chousukemnaines: you can try doing sudo tune2fs -m 0 /dev/the500GBpartition and see if that frees up space.10:52
Chousukemnaines: if it doesn't then there's nothing you can do about it :P10:52
KurtKrautWhitt, I suggest you to try http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=33410:52
icesmurfchous: yeah you can, you can reduce the inode count to something more reasonable.10:52

jophishSandking, there is a nautilus extension to open a terminal in the current directory, you could use that, and run the program from terminal12:05
allenbradleySandking, sudo nautilus?12:05
Sandkingjophish: ok, thx. i think i'll just run the app from terminal12:05
jophishno problem,12:05
Dr_WillisSandking:  if you want you could make a script that lanches the app that way.. if you need to do it more then once.12:06
Sandkingallenbradley: i don't want to have whole nautilus as admin - only selected app. but as i said, i just use terminal12:06
SandkingDr_Willis:  scripts for me is black magic - i'm not so techy guy12:06
allenbradleySandking: Fair enough12:06
BlouBlouI am thinking about publish in internet bot's log folder, how can I do it?12:07
kichawamy friend is testing 9.10 on the usb stick, it's strange because Xorg pid takes about 95% of one core, if we restard X server everything is ok12:08
chu_I'm pretty sure I can change my repo server to BigPond's mirror, however, in the software sources GUI there's no way of selecting the BigPond server, so, is there a way I can just change the text directly?12:08
Dr_WillisSandking:  time to learn then i guess..12:08

mo0nykitHi! I'm trying to help my friend install gnome-ppp. He doesn't have Internet connection with Linux, but he can download through Windows. Here's what I'm planning to do http://paste.ubuntu.com/289986/ How do I instruct him to install the debs while automatically taking care of dependencies?12:10
SandkingDr_Willis: right now I'm trying to get an "overlooked" feature of terminal called "running apps as admin"... you're talking with simple point'n'click user, all right? :]12:11
denmark:))moonykit u can use wvdial12:11
mo0nykitdenmark, is wvdial installed by default?12:11
Sandkingdamn it would be nice if terminal had options to point and click ;]12:12
denmarksudo wvdial12:12
* Dr_Willis hides Sandking 's mouse12:12
SandkingDr_Willis: no, really ;] after listing files point and click on file would be just an extension. i bet someone did something like that12:12
Dr_WillisSandking:  dare we ask what you are trying to run as admin?12:12
mo0nykitdenmark, actually I have already sent him the files, then told him to "sudo dpkg -i gnome-ppp-<version number blah>" from /var/cache/apt/archives, he says wvdial is not installed12:13
* Sandking blushes12:13
Dr_WillisSandking:  install/run 'mc'   its a text based file manager.. :) a must have tool you can 'sudo mc' to do root tasks with it.12:13
Sandkingvbox addition tools12:13
Dr_WillisSandking:  so you want to run 'sudo virtualboxaddons.sh' or whatever its called...12:13
Dr_Willisactually that may need gksudo (since its a gui installer i think)12:14
bobbyhey all12:14
SandkingDr_Willis: I did sudo appname and it tells me command not found...12:14
denmarkmo0nykit install it - sudo apt-get install wvdial12:14
tushar777hi every112:14
Dr_WillisSandking:  becase the app s not in your current directory.12:14
bobbytushar777, hi12:14
mo0nykitdenmark, BTW me doing a "sudo apt-get install gnome-ppp --download-only" will also download the wvdial package, so that means that the wvdial.deb is already in the PPP.tar that I sent my friend12:14
Dr_WillisSandking:  if its on the Desktop its in /home/username/Desktop12:14
tushar777hi bobby..12:15
SandkingDr_Willis: no, I am in the dir where the app is12:15
SandkingDr_Willis: I listed all files and it's here12:15
bobbytushar777, where from/12:15
Dr_WillisSandking:  then you typed the name wring..  try the TAB key to complete the name12:15
Dr_WillisSandking:  and Case Is ImpoRanTAnT12:15
denmarkmo0nykit what actully u want to do ?12:15
SandkingDr_Willis: yep, I know - I use autofill12:15
mo0nykitdenmark, so, you mean, after my friend copies the .deb files to /var/cache/apt/archives, he can "sudo apt-get install wvdial" from anywhere? (He doesn't have Internet connection from within Linux)12:15
SandkingDr_Willis: app has extension .run - does it change anything12:16
blue-frogSandking: http://pastebin.com/d447bf85d12:16
Dr_WillisSandking:  it saying thats an executable you actually "execute' like you do anything else12:16
denmarkdear mo0nykit do not download it12:16
mo0nykitdenmark, I want to help my friend install PPP tools. He doesn't have internet connection from Linux. He has a USB modem (HSDPA/GPRS)12:16
blue-frogSandking: then you will be able to right click on a program choose script/runas (in nautilus) and run the program12:16
Dr_Willissh whatever.run, or chmod +x whatever.run     THEn ./whatever.run12:16
Sandkingblue-frog: thx for effort, but i'm just trying to di it in terminal12:16
tushar777can nokia n73 usb modem can be used to connect to internet on Ubuntu 8.0412:17
mo0nykitdenmark, I was thinking along the lines of giving my friend the .debs which I can send as email, then he can download from within Windows, then transfer the files through USB flash drive to his Linux box12:17
Sandkingi can't run it from nautilus since it req admin priv12:17

farligdoes anyone know where to find the preference folder for google chrome. can't find a "." folder in /home/14:20
aquariusHodapp, I've been tempted to just do "ping google.com" in a VC on the machine, to keep the network up ;)14:21
Hodappaquarius: eh, that or just ping the router or something14:21
vavarhow can i tell which network interface should be used preferably?14:21
aquariusfarlig, should be in ~/.config/chromium or similar.14:21
aquariusHodapp, yeah, but it's, er, something of a bodge ;)14:22
LjLi do have a ~/.chromium actually.14:22
Hodappaquarius: So?14:22
LjLah nevermind, it's something else, it's indeed ~/.config/chromium14:22
aquariusHodapp, I feel guilty about that sort of thing, and if it's evidence of a deeper problem I'd like to find out what it is so I can report a bug on it, since my dad doesn't know about pinging the router to keep the network awake :P14:22
