rordetrix, if your normal image viewer doesn't support it (and it should?) then you could try converting it with image magick01:15

wes32in an encrypted home folder: is it safe to give out my mount password assuming they will not retrieve my login password?01:19
gnuisancev4we32 -- no01:19
wes32gnuisancev4: what could one do with just my mount passphrase? the mount passphrase needs the login passphrase to be of any use, does it not?01:20
wes32i've been reading up on ecryptfs but I seem to be getting contradictory information on this specific issue01:20
gnuisancev4the whole point of encryption is so that if someone has physical access to the box they can't get to the data, even if they rebooted with a livecd01:20

jaquerQuick Q: I'm currently using Intrepid and want to update to the Karmic RC. Do I have to install Jaunty first?01:21
craigbass1976MK13, what's the matter with it?01:21
trismjaquer: yes01:21
MenZajaquer: Yes, but I *highly* recommend you install it from scratch.01:21
wes32gnuisancev4: with all due respect, what does that have to do with my question?01:21
MenZajaquer: The update currently has an issue with the bootloader, which won't allow that specific part to be updated.01:21
wes32jaquer: considering the changes made in Karmic, I second MenZa's suggestion (new GRUB and ext4)01:21

craigbass1976wes32, what's up with ext4?  What's new?01:22
jtmcgeeHey guys, I have a quick question needing advice. I have this really slow computer, and a really fast one. The slow one is miserable to use, but could I remote desktop (viewing) into a virtual ubuntu on the fast comuter, and would that be faster?01:23
wes32craigbass1976: it's like ext3, but slightly better in most regards :)01:23
MK13craigbass1976, it just gives an error when trying to start,  http://pastebin.com/d568a604d01:23
gnuisancev4wes32:  the mount passphrase can be used with a live cd, as long as someone has the mount passphrase, bypassing the OS and mounting it and retrieving the data isn't hard to do.  you asked if it was save, i said no and that's why01:23
wes32craigbass1976: the one thing i'm noticing is a minor speed increase, but that might be mentally01:23
MK13craigbass1976: i do notice the message about a corrupt frostwire.jar01:23
craigbass1976MK13, how did you install java?01:23
wes32gnuisancev4: ah I see. so my thinking of needing the login passphrase to decrypt the mount passphrase is rather bogus, then? because that's what many ubuntu-related websites are suggesting01:24

Leifcan some one help me with a samba error?01:25
jtmcgeetrism: cool, but if like even clicking a button, and a menu popping up takes a long time, would that also make the virt. server just as slow to use?01:25

jhouseWhy do I have green checkmarks everywhere with 9.10?01:26
MK13craigbass1976: it isn't supposed to have a problem with 64bit, and i installed jre via : sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre01:26

LiteHeddedwhat's the command to restart networking?02:32
necromniconfcuk112: touch is kinda what i want but it only works for a single file... is there a command that works recursively?02:32
jacquesdupontdthe wget start, the vlc start the download of the wget but i would like to be able to kill all that if it's needed02:32
jacquesdupontdtrism, understood ?02:32
inurneckmsg nickserv register02:33
trismjacquesdupontd: yeah I get it, why not just vlc http://www.example.com/path/to/file.avi02:33
fcuk112necromnicon: it works for multiple files as well, e.g. touch *.pl02:33
jacquesdupontdtrism, i was always doing that before and my script as like 10 better things than this solution i could tell you, you have the file, you download it the fastest possible instead of using the buffer of vlc, you can pause many other reasons02:34
jacquesdupontdi managed02:36
jacquesdupontdtrism, just putted a kill $! on the end of the script02:36
trismjacquesdupontd: great, I was just about to suggest $!02:37
jacquesdupontdtrism, you should try my script it really works perfectly02:37
trismjacquesdupontd: I actually like to finish downloading before I try to watch any videos, I just queue them up in a text file and wget -i file02:38
jacquesdupontdand really better than vlc theurl that was freezing if your downloading speed goes down but not taking more data if it goes faster and when there was freezes you were missing the during time of the freeze of the movie02:38
trismjacquesdupontd: it is definitely an interesting idea though02:39
jacquesdupontdtrism, but i have to ask you something else to make it really perfect, in fact i would like that in the script if in my arg an ".avi" is inside take the name of the file instead of tempmov and if it's a directory do like i did02:39
tobiei went to a barnes and noble where they had a wireless repeater on their main at&t wifi connection.  i am using b43 from b43-fwcutter.  i was unable to connect to either ATT ssid.  is that a common occurance where repeaters are stationed ?02:40
jacquesdupontdbefore i did with the name of the end of the url after the "/" but doesn't works when the file is an url wich only finish by "/" with no file name02:40
jacquesdupontdtrism, you understand ?02:40
jacquesdupontdi'll show you02:40
n8tusertobie nope, its easy to connect02:40
jacquesdupontdi was doing with a variable call "name" the line was name=$(echo "$1" | rev | cut -f1 -d'/' | rev)02:41

dfr|mac_Billiard: I've played a bit with xrandr according to manuals online... but there're two caveats: 1) for some reason it only wants 856x480 resolution, not 852.... the other is that the "viewable" part of the screen is shifted right and up... and not sure how to tell xrandr to offset it02:48

Ch3mtailWith the USB install mode that's now avaliable from the live CD, you will create a USB installation that retains changes made purely in memory until system shutdown, then writing them to disk to minimize device wear, correct?03:05

cwillu_clonemehedi, it's the "notification area", just right-click on the panel and re-add it04:56
bazhanglucas_, this is for jauntu and other versions still in use; #ubuntu+1 for questions about karmic04:56
ajhtiredwolflucas_, not necessarily out dated version might not have been patched04:56
cwillu_clonemehedi, or if it's really just the icon missing, alt-f2 -> "nm-applet"04:56

durtOwners, how many cards in the system right now?05:07
RAWRjarthen I misinterpreted you05:07
BilliardRAWRjar: i mean enter in the dns server ip manually05:07

RAWRjaraaaaah lol05:08
durtOwners, does it show in ifconfig?05:08

bmwerksi dont have a gui for compiz because i have a onboard vidcard how can i turn off the redirect on fullscreen from the terminal?05:11
bastid_raZorkermit: install cpufrequtils and then cpufreq-info  .. what does it tell you?05:11
durtOwners, it could be the modem remembers the MAC of the previous card and won't lease another IP address thinking you're trying to connect two systems at the same time, or the cable could be bad.05:11
ajhtiredwolfbmwerks, having onboard video doesn't mean you shouldn't have a gui05:11

durtOwners, you could capture the dhcp request and response with wireshark to see what is happening (if you can get access some other way).05:13

I've been working on this all day but I'm not that advanced of a user yet.  Am I asking in the right place?05:53
preecheri had to do a re-install of ubuntu 9.04 earlier and now when i am listening to online streaming audio my volume is not as loud as it used to be---could this be because i need different mpeg 1/2 codecs05:53
=== SnakDoc_ is now known as SnakDoc
jstrakeTo restate my initial query with updated info: I'm having a hard disk space issue.  Have 25G allocated on the partition.  Show 1.3G free, but only several hundred Mb available.  Disk Usage Analyzer only shows 7.7G on the filesystem.  So what is eating up my other 14G?  Have tried all conventional cleanup strategies (deborphan, apt-get clean/autoclean, etc.)  df -h output is http://paste.ubuntu.com/299528/05:53
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, do u think its due to grub is unalbe to find windows7 boot loader?05:53
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, or windows7 boot loader is unable to get loaded?05:53
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, totally i have installed windows7, three times, and ubuntu two times, and its hectic now05:54
Brack101I've tried reinstalling my Nvidia drivers 5 times and reinstalling libgl....I keep getting this and nothing 3d works. http://pastebin.com/m28281e1d   - tried all suggestions in forums, nothing.  Halp plz05:54
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, i think i will have to throw away the QUAD, system05:54
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, well, what's strange is that it IS Set to the correct device05:54
Brando753anyone know how i can connect to my Hp p1006 Printer, i tried the Hplip, as well as that fojlis thing and it still dosent work05:54
n8tuserjstrake-> please paste results of  df -h and sudo fdisk -l05:54
jstrakeIf this is a partitioning error, I need to know what errors are possible.  I have not had any usage problems.  If it is XP messing with the partition, what's the resolution?05:54
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, but you know, lets try another just for the hell of it05:55
LowninShould I be asking my question about the Ubuntu Server OpenLDAP tutorial someplace else?05:55
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, ok so anyother suggestion? as i have searched alot on internet,05:55
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, hang on, be patient05:55
bp0hello, im trying to update my jaunty to the rc, with `update-manager -d` ... is there a way i can tell it to use packs from the cd instead of downloading? im only getting 100k from the server and its going to take hours05:56
engineer_ajhtiredwolf,  find all same thing, to reinstall grub and change from (hd0,0) to 1 and all that chainloader etc things05:56
bazhangbp0, #ubuntu+1 for karmic discussion05:56
jstrakesudo fdisk -l at http://paste.ubuntu.com/299532/05:56
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, but none works05:56
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, what happened when you tried hd(1,1) ?05:56
jstrakedh -h at http://paste.ubuntu.com/299528/05:56
engineer_it says something like that the device is not present05:57
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, you know what?05:57
seetherMI downloaded ubuntu and installed it but it didnt install drivers for my gforce 210 (nvidia) can anyone point me in the right direction?05:57
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, i have an idea, do you know how to go into your bios?05:57
seetherMso i can get all the cool effects etc05:57
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, yes sure.05:57
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, are windows 7 and ubuntu install on different hard drives?05:57
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, no . on one same hardisk05:58
engineer_tell me what to change in bios, i am used to it05:58
jstraken8tuser: any thoughts?05:59
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, never mind that if its all on one hard drive05:59
n8tuserjstrake on what?05:59
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, if windows 7 was installed first it SHOULD be on hd0,0 and according to your fdisk sda1 SHOULD be the correct device06:00
jstrakeon my query about my missing hard drive space.06:00
engineer_ajhtiredwolf,  yes thats right, and i know this,06:00
engineer_the problem comes after this06:00
engineer_all is correct, still its not booting06:00
seetherMI downloaded ubuntu and installed it but it didnt install drivers for my gforce 210 (nvidia) can anyone point me in the right direction?06:00
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, so lets see here, lets narrow the problem down, did you just install both?06:00
ajhtiredwolfafter installing windows 7, it worked until you installed ubuntu correct?06:01
bazhangseetherM, is there anything in hardware drivers (system administration hardware drivers)06:01
ajhtiredwolfdo you have any other windows versions?06:01
n8tuser!who | jstrake06:01
ubottujstrake: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)06:01
engineer_yes, windows vista06:01
ajhtiredwolfhow about xp?06:01
engineer_well, i havent got it at the moment, however its funny that i checked it with windows vista, two days before and SAME PROBLEM06:02
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, yeah the way they boot, win7 and vista is similar06:02
engineer_means vista and windows7 same issue06:02
engineer_so it means that its some problem with windows7 boot loader?06:03
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, no i don't think so, hang on, let me think06:03
bazhangengineer_, I had a similar issue, ended up using gparted to partition beforehand (gparted livecd) and the problem went away06:03
engineer_or grub itsnt able to find the windows7 loader?06:03
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, no grub found it correctly06:03
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, heres a thought06:04
engineer_bazhang, i have installed gparted, so what to do with that?06:04
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, when you installed ubuntu, how did you tell it to install, did you tell it to install side by side?06:04
engineer_its just for partiioning06:04
LowninWhere can I get help with the Ubuntu OpenLDAP tutorial?06:04
jstrakeubottu: what does "!tab" mean (sorry, pseudo noob).06:04
ubottuI am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)06:04
seetherMBazhang, do you know what i should do?06:04
bazhangengineer_, gparted livecd  was what I used06:04
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, first time i tell to install in free space, thats was created my me for ubuntu,06:04
Brando753anyone know how i can connect to my Hp p1006 Printer, i tried the Hplip, as well as that fojlis thing and it still dosent work06:05
bazhangseetherM, this is an older card?06:05
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, and the second time?06:05
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, 2nd time after formating all, and installing windows7 and then ubuntu, i told to install them by manual06:05
bazhangjstrake, type the first few letters of the person you wish to communicate with then hit the tab key to autocomplete their nickname, thus highlighting them06:05
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, here is what i would try. I would install iwndows 7, while installing windows 7 i would delete all partitions, then specify a partition for win706:06
engineer_bazhang. kindly tell me how can be gparted usefull, tell me more06:06
jstrakebazhang: thanks.  Got it.06:06
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, then when i installed ubuntu I would specificy the swap and root partitions myself06:06
seetherMits new06:06
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, that way you aren't telling ubuntu to touch any part of the win7 loader06:06
seetherMthe whole system is brand new06:06
seetherMit came with vista but i deleted it and installed ubuntu06:07
seetherMi'm good at using ubuntu just not good at setting up stuff...06:07
loshajstrake: !tab means to type those 4 characters as the very first thing on the line to see ubottu's recorded message about the tab character.06:07
engineer_same i did 2nd time, in manual telling, i created a swap for ubuntu and deleted partition and recreated for ubutnu06:07
engineer_windows 7 loader is already in another drive, of 100mb06:07
engineer_and its like that06:07
bazhangengineer_, gparted live cd is a 100 mb download (iso) burn iso to cd, boot from it, then format the disk into ntfs and ext3 (jaunty) or ext4 karmic; reboot and replace disk with windows 7 installer disk; install to ntfs partition; repeat with ubuntu cd06:08
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, you created the swap and main partition from free space?06:08
loshajstrake: I just looked at your df. You have 22G in use on /dev/sda506:08
engineer_and strange is that i cant access the files of windows7 boot drive from ubuntu????06:08
engineer_bazhang, thanks06:08
loshajstrake: do you want to find out where your space has gone?06:08
jstrakelosha: I know.  But I can only actually find files for 7.7G and only a few hundred Mb now available.  Do you know any whys?  http://paste.ubuntu.com/299528/ and http://paste.ubuntu.com/299532/06:09
ajhtiredwolfbazhang, it sounds like that is what he has already done06:09
jstrakelosha: yes.06:09
ajhtiredwolfbazhang, ah well, he left06:09
bazhangengineer_, I had the same exact issue (not being to access the drive) before fixing with gparted method06:09
engineer_yes, i deleted the partitions that i had created for ubuntu, and then recreated them, reserving one drive for swap and other for ubuntu06:09
engineer_does it specify any problem?06:09
=== root is now known as Guest36714
bazhangajhtiredwolf, ah thanks06:09
bazhangoh wait06:09
ajhtiredwolfnever mind06:09
Guest36714wa!  you talk about  ubuntu  linux06:10
loshajstrake: ok, open a terminal, and type sudo -i06:10
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, give what bazhang said a try, if that doesn't work i can explain to you have to use the windows 7 boot loader to manage win7 and ubuntuu instead of grub06:10
jstrakelosha: okay.06:10
loshajstrake: now do cd /06:10
jstrakethen what?06:10
jstrakelosha: okay.06:11
loshajstrake: now do: du -x | sort -rn > /tmp/du.out06:11
engineer_really, how will that be done, i means loading ubntu from windows7 loader?06:11
bazhangseetherM, I'm not familiar with that card, its odd that there is nothing in hardware drivers for it06:11
Guest36714where is  this????????????????/06:11
Guest36714why   the question  all   about    linux  and  win706:11
bazhangGuest36714, #ubuntu , support for Ubuntu OS06:11
engineer_and also plz tell me how to fixndows7 boot loader?06:11
loshajstrake: it will take a few minutes, as it scans the whole 23G partition06:11
jstrakelosha: okay, processing now.06:11
bazhangGuest36714, random chat in #ubuntu-offtopic please06:11
engineer_i means how to fix windows7 boot loader?06:12
engineer_without reinstalling windows706:12
Guest36714fix  the  mbr06:12
Guest36714fix  the  mbr06:12
Guest36714you  can  fix  the  win7  load06:12
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, first give what bazhang said a try06:12
gogetawhos bein bad06:12
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, yes you can load ubuntu through the win7 lodaer06:12
engineer_hows that dones?06:12
bazhangengineer_, basically when I used the method described above, Ubuntu saw the entire Windows 7 partition as the bootloader (of 117GB)06:13
Guest36714go   google06:13
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, well idealy you will use grub so try this first06:13
loshajstrake: when it completes, the file /tmp/du.out will contain a listing, largest first, of every file and directory on /dev/sda5 in order of size. Hopefully it will be obvious where the space is going from the listing06:13
bazhangGuest36714, that is not helpful, please dont suggest it here06:13
gogetaryguy: and why are you tryin to hide lol06:13
engineer_ok . i will try.06:13
MK13engineer_, http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/EBCD/Recovering+the+Vista+Bootloader+from+the+DVD06:14
jstrakelosha: okay.  Thanks.  I'll check the file and probably report back.  Tried the disk usage analyzer GUI which supposedly does the same thing... but could only find 7.7G.06:14
engineer_MK13, thanks06:14
ajhtiredwolfengineer_, I dont know if it still works the same way but in xp and 98 you just had to boot to recovery mdoe and type fixmbr and ntfsldr or something like that, i forget06:14
Guest36714have   chinese   in  this  room   ???????????/06:15
loshajstrake: You aren't the first person to say that, I don't trust any of those gui progs. They seem to be really buggy.06:15
bazhangGuest36714, #ubuntu-cn06:15
MK13engineer_, if you don't have the cd, then EasyBCD has the files too06:15
Guest36714use  chinese06:15
gogetaso does supergrub06:15
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, yes fixmbr works for win98 and xp , i have tried it, but dont know for windows vista or 706:15

SnakDocJust wanted to say system is running very well with karmic on it :)06:16
engineer_MK13, how to install boot loader from windows7 dvd?06:16
loshajstrake: feel free to paste the top 10 lines of /tmp/du.out if you need help06:16
ae86-drifterget the precracked torrent with the boot loader06:16

jstrakelosha: okay.  pasted at http://paste.ubuntu.com/299544/06:17
engineer_ajhtiredwolf, and MK!3, and bazhang, thanks for all help, i hope i come with any solution06:17
MK13engineer_, the site should tell you06:17
ajhtiredwolfae86-drifter, ugh, dont start a OS war06:17
engineer_okies buddies06:17
engineer_farewell to me.06:17
engineer_but onething is for sure, the problems that comes to me, are mostly un solvable, :)06:18
ae86-drifterwindows only deserves a vm not an actual partition06:18
bazhangae86-drifter, piracy talk is not acceptable here, please desist06:18
ajhtiredwolfae86-drifter, asking and answering questions would be awesome06:18
gogetaae86-drifter or a vm on  a real paration06:18
loshajstrake: ok, 16G in /var, of which 15G is /var/backup. 3G in /usr, can't do much about that. Next is /home/jonathan with about 2G. Then each individual file in /var/backup. Is any of this making any sense?06:18
ae86-drifterlol anything on your hd is actually on a REAL partition :P06:19
ae86-drifterexcept for mbr06:19
jstrakelosha: yes.  Am I safe to delete the /var/backup files?  And what is best practice for doing so?06:20
gogetaae86-drifter i used a vm a real partation and some tricks ro make a usb xp06:20
ae86-drifteroh really, i have backtrack 4 on a bootable usb drive06:22

ubottuae86-drifter gogeta: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!06:22
loshajstrake: well, it depends. What are they backups of? You probably don't want to delete them all. You might wanna keep, say, the two most recent. Do you even know what's creating them?06:22
ae86-driftererr yeah ubuntu....06:22
ubottuThis is not a file sharing channel (or network). If you're looking for information about me, type « /msg ubottu !bot »06:22
jstrakelosha: they are likely backups generated by SimpleBackup--an app I installed earlier and haven't thought of in a while.  I will play with the settings for a minute and post the results.06:23
ae86-drifterubuntu 10.04 is under development06:24
loshajstrake: well, it's good to have backups. But they *do* take up disk space. No thanks to whatever gui told you you're only using 7G, btw...06:24
jstrakelosha: no doubt.  Thanks for all the help!06:24
ae86-drifterset it to incremental backup06:25
ajhtiredwolfhas anyone had the problem of compiz not supporting composite transparancy under LXDE?06:25
loshajstrake: my pleasure. I really need to write this stuff up...06:25
ae86-drifterincremental backups will take up alot less space06:25
jstrakelosha: yep, and publish it and make some $$$06:25
loshajstrake: yeah, that's why I'm on #ubuntu. For the money. Half the time I can't even give advice away free....06:26
jstrakelosha: one more thing: would you mind pastebinning the two commands you showed me for how to find what was eating my drive space?06:26
loshajstrake: you mean: sudo -i; cd /; du -x | sort -rn > /tmp/du.out06:27
gogetalosha yea so mutch money in linux wait thers the repo man dam06:27

bazhanggreg, which chipset on the card06:36
markmqis there an ubuntu help channel/06:36

bazhangmarkmq, this is it06:37
gregIt did work out of the box.  But then after about a week, it stopped working.06:37
bazhanggreg, open a terminal and type ifconfig, do you see it there06:37
gogetagreg go in bios turn back on its some strange happning in 9.0406:37
gregIt says that wireless is disabled in (I think) iwconfig06:37
gregThis is in 8.0406:37
gregHP ships Mini 110-1000 with 8.0406:38
bazhanggreg, is there a wireless shutoff switch on the machine06:38
markmqokay then quick question.  when I launch ubuntu from disk it askes if I want to install hardware for my wireless card.  now that I've installed it doesn't see it or give me any option like this06:38
gregYes there is one, it has a little LED light on it.06:38
gregThat light is blue until I log in, then it turns orange.06:38
gregWhich means that somehow logging in turns off the wireless.06:38
markmqI figured plugging it in via ethernet might trigger something06:39
gregWhereas when it worked before, it stayed blue.06:39

tntcI've got a rather odd problem: I have an external hard disk that shows up in dmesg, can be cfdisk, and can be manually mounted, but won't show up in Places, etc, unless it's mounted by hand.  Another disk, formatted with the same FS, shows up fine.  They are literally identical models of disk, both with NTFS on them.  Why would one show up and not the other?06:44
gregThere is a wlan0 paragraph in ifconfig.06:44
augtenchetnick: try "locate .bash" ?06:44
gogetagreg should tell it to turn the card back on06:44
Billiardchetnick: if you want it back `cp /etc/skel/.bashrc ~/`06:44

bigfootbuilt9.04 is my first linux distro. When 9.1 comes out, do I have to do a clean install? Or just update it?07:51
bazhangbigfootbuilt, your choice07:52
Blueybigfootbuilt: your choice - personally I've found that a clean install is usually best...07:52
bigfootbuiltbazhang: Would package manager install it?07:52
eradicusbigfootbuilt, is there really a 9.1?07:52
bigfootbuiltUpdater I mean?07:52
Blueybigfootbuilt: however - you need to backup /home and /etc as a minimum07:52
bigfootbuilt9.10 = 9.1 sorry07:52
bazhangbigfootbuilt, sure it will07:52
DaZbigfootbuilt: you can update07:53
ActionParsnipbigfootbuilt: you can use the web just "upgrade" from 9.04 to 9.10. Or if you like you can clean install07:53
bigfootbuiltThanks guys07:53

prince_jammys!rar | keith07:56
forceflowkeith: install unrar07:56
ubottukeith: rar is a non-free archive format created by Rarsoft. For instructions on accessing .rar files through the Archive Manager view https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FileCompression. There is a free (as in speech) unrar utility as well, see !info unrar-free07:56
ActionParsnipkeith: sudo apt-get install rar unrar07:56

ActionParsnipjamiewan: sudo apt-get install devede07:58
bazhangjamiewan, take a look at devede07:58
ActionParsnipjamiewan: you can configure a DVD and it will spit out an ISO you can burn07:58
jamiewanyeah cant get it to work but if thats what you guys reckon i'll persist with it\07:58
ActionParsnipjamiewan: there are others07:58
macoGratz474: also, did you look at the date on that? April 1?07:58
ActionParsnipthats just one07:58
jamiewanActionParsnip: ok i'll try that too07:58
jamiewanActionParsnip:  so i can tell devede to iso an avi file then burn it that way08:00
ActionParsnipjamiewan: no, you make a totle page, each menu option plays an avi (or avis)08:01
ActionParsnipjamiewan: give it a background and some menu music if you want too, then tell it to run08:01
jamiewanActionParsnip: ok thanx mate08:02
ActionParsnipjamiewan: it'll take a while depending on how beefy your system is, my 1.6Ghz single core with 2Gb ram takes about 5 hours to do its thang08:02
ActionParsnipjamiewan: when its done you will have an iso you can throw at your favourite burning app and it will be good for any player08:02

chris8hey room -- what do video cards look like now?  I looked at a few online tutorials and they looked like 3x5" circuit boards... but i don't see anything like that on the towers i've got open here... all i see are little red boxes by the monitor jacks :S ???08:10
milligan_prince_jammys, the script writes to a logfile when it executes.08:10
prince_jammysmilligan_: do you provide an absolute path to the file? if not, do so.08:10
voxchris8: depends on the card08:10
voxchris8: most low-end stuff is really quite small.. the high-end gear is huge.08:11

PranavAfter booting from Ubuntu to Xp or vice versa, I need to adjust the dislocated screen from the monitor display keys. Any solution guyz ... ;(08:17
ActionParsnipPranav: keep it so one OS is OK then adjust the screen position in the other OS08:18
PranavActionParsnip, Sry I didn't get ?08:19
=== Bruno is now known as Brunno
ActionParsnipPranav: well both OS have the screen a different way, yes08:19
duckx0rPranav, you need to configure both OS's to use exactly the same resolution, horizontal refresh and vertical refresh08:19
ActionParsnipso you leave the screen so it is ok for one othe the OSes08:19
ActionParsnipPranav: then use some grahical tool in the other to make it like the position the monitor is in, rather than manually moving the monitor08:20
ActionParsnipas well as what duckx0r says as that can shift the screen too08:21
PranavActionParsnip, tools like ?08:21
ActionParsnipPranav: i dont know any. I dont mess with displays or dual boot08:22
ActionParsnipPranav: windows may have one so you can shift the screen. I know nvidia have it08:22
ActionParsnipPranav: basically you need to play with software and settings so your image is right, rather than using the OSD on your monitor.08:23
duckx0rActionParsnip, that can only shift the screen within the actual viewing area anyway, so if the viewing area is off the edge of the monitor i don't think that any software can correct that08:23

voxtoothdecay: join #ubuntu+1 for karmic support08:25
duckx0rPranav, maybe there might be some sort of windows tool you can download to tell you what the horizontal and vertical refresh rates are and more detailed specs about the monitor. I don't know though. If you find it, you could just configure your xorg.conf to be the same08:25

andrewfreeso I ran this command  "root@freekbox:/var/www# cp -Rf /var/www /backup"  and it looks like it worked when I viewed /backup but the command never returns a new prompt. It just looks like its working. but I know var/www is not bigger then 10MB so it cant take this long09:13
jimbeam12hey all wsup09:14

vtec_i am looking to make my Ubuntu 9.04 windows transparent like in some pictures I have seen, I have compiz if that is helpful information...can anyone help? I'd like to have my windows open and see most of my desktop background at the same time09:53
DeFihi everyone, does anyone know how i can set the same interface to be brought up multiple times at boot? (a PPP interface)?09:53
=== vtec_ is now known as icarly
imyousufThanks geirha, yes there is a mention of it and I think its should fixed :)09:53
coz_CHESLYN,  although this is not a hardware troubleshooting  channel ....if the fan is not working...shut down the system...take out the fan.... get a bowl  deep enough to cover the fan   fill it wil alcohol and switch the fan around...there is a slight chance it is just dirty09:53
system4041Frickelpit: Could not save the file /media/disk/boot/grub/menu.lst.09:53
geirhaimyousuf: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/tzdata/+bug/45632209:53
coz_CHESLYN,  just be sure the fan is completely dry before turning on the system,09:53
system4041need to open it from terminal with sudo do i09:54
DJonesXterm_: On 8.04 with xchat 2.84, if i right click on the channel name I get show join/part messages as an option on the first menu that comes up09:54
ActionParsnip1system4041: gksudo if you are using a gui app09:54
Frickelpitsystem4041: shure, you need sudo to save the file, just type sudo nano /media/disk/boot/grub/menu.lst09:54
Xterm_<DJones> Strange... Exakt WHERE do you right click on channelname?09:55
DeFiDoes anyone know how i can set the same interface to be brought up multiple times at boot? (a PPP interface)09:56
DJonesXterm_: On the left tab, you should have the server list and channels that are open09:56
lucentDeFi: apparently not.09:56
lucentDeFi: keep trying though, you're alienating anyone who might have the expertise to answer your question.09:56
DJonesXterm_: perhaps tab is the wrong description, its the left window pane09:56
Xterm_If I click on channelname in upper left Window of Xchat I get a menu with Channelname in blue | extra alerts | settings | remove from favourites | detach | close09:56
Lint01how can I install grub from live CD, keeping existing boot loader?09:56
DeFilucent: hopefully someone will, people are joining and leaving all the time... im not alienating anyone.09:56
Xterm_ok. Then we are probably loking at the same "server name" I would also describe it as the left pane09:57
imyousufthanks a lot geirha, commenting on the issue09:57
DJonesXterm_: Try clicking on the extra alerts, it might be that which will bring up an extra menu09:57
CHESLYNcoz_: you know what ? i had a pentium that was running with a broken fan for mouths now im not sure whats happening09:57
ActionParsnip1Lint01: grub is a bootloader so by installing grub you will install grub over the existing boot loader09:57
system4041Frickelpit: ive edited out the new kernal gonna reboot now fingers crossed i get no more crashes09:58
coz_CHESLYN,  mm  well I suggest cleaning or replacing the fan09:58
Xterm_<DJones> Extra alerts -> Beep on message | Blink tray icon | Blink taskbar09:58
Xterm_Nothing else there09:58
Frickelpitsystem4041: good luck :)09:58
DJonesXterm_: What about if you click on settings09:58
bazhangXterm_, right click channel settings09:59
Lint01all bootloaders can call another one way or another. Will grub backup present bootsector upon installation?09:59
bazhangXterm_, hide join/part messages09:59
DJonesXterm_: what version of xchat are you using? click on help and about09:59
CHESLYNcoz_: but i think it can still go for mouths or years like this ....mm wow ne09:59

ubottuLint01: GRUB is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto10:02
Xterm_Ok.. my other question is about screenlets. I autostart thre scrennlets. But from time to time some of them gets its settings reverted to default. I have looked in .screenlets (because thats the place where they got imported to) but I can't find any config data (like placements, color etc) for them there. Where does this kind of data gets stored?10:02
muszekit happened right after dist-upgrade ("partial upgrade" in update-manager's terminology).  I rebooted (kernel was upgraded) and the cursor was gone.  I rebooted again just to make sure it's not a one-time thing.10:03
ActionParsnip1muszek: is it the same with all mouse themes?10:04
muszekwow... it just magically re-appeared (I didn't do anything)10:04
system4041woo it worked10:04

Xterm_srinath don't meen to sound laike a dumbas but have you tried to google your soundcard (or laptop model if it's a laptop) + ubuntu... Usualy you get good hits and realy good tutorials.. I have solved all my sound problems like that10:17
srinathhelp needed10:17
=== manolo is now known as manolo_2
etfbsrinath: I agree with Xterm_ - that's how I found solutions (or, in the case of the Acer laptop I had, found out that there ARE no solutions).10:18
manolo_2(sorry, rewriting) hi to all. I'm creating a new presentation with images and notes but i'm unable to see them10:18
lucentlowlycoder: uh, Ubuntu 9.12 is due next year and includes support for fantom sewing machines that can order doublesided velcro when you command it to with your voice10:18

manolo_2etfb sorry, I was not spamming... I just had some kind of error message as (NickServ registration) so that I thought my messages was not sent10:20
etfbmanolo_2: Fair enough; my apologies.  It looks like the channel had some kind of a hiccup just a second ago.10:20
manolo_2etfb: thanks for advicing that my question was not clear. Can I make it clearer? which part is not?10:21
etfbmanolo_2: So: explain.  What do you mean when you say you can't see anything?  Screen is blank, program is not running, eyes have been poked out...?10:21
hey_boyHow do I install proprietary drivers for my VGA (onboard Intel 845)10:21
etfbmanolo_2: Also: what software are you using?10:21

ActionParsnip1hey_boy: i suggest this if you are using jaunty: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReinhardTartler/X/RevertingIntelDriverTo2.410:22
lucentIntel drivers are open source and not proprietary10:22
lucentam I mistaken?10:22
hey_boyI am on Karmic10:22
ActionParsnip1hey_boy: the intel drivers are open10:22

ActionParsnip1hey_boy: /j #ubuntu+110:22
ActionParsnip1hey_boy: your release isnt supported here10:23
etfbhey_boy: Also: take a step back (when talking on the other channel) and explain _why_ you want to do that.10:23
manolo_2etfb: Using OO.org 3.1.1 build 9420 on Ubuntu Jaunty. The problem is that I insert IMMAGES and NOTES but I?M UNABLE to see them when I run the presentation pressing F5 key10:23
etfbhey_boy: It's like: you're trying to cook a cake, and so you go and ask "how do I set my flamethrower to 350 degrees?"  when really you should explain what you're doing and people will gently suggest you use an oven instead...10:24
indushey_boy: i will help u10:24
etfbmanolo_2: Do you see placeholders? What about other stuff - text and so on?10:24
manolo_2etfb: I just see a white page or a page with the template background, just in case10:25
manolo_2etfb: I do see text in pages10:25
lucentetfb: explain FAIL. An obvious use of a flamethrower is to bake a cake, but those bastards won't release the source code and this is not the place to discuss licensing issues ;)10:25

ActionParsnip1jo__: maybe it needs the extra nudge, rc.local is processed last so should fix you up automagically10:29
jo__doesnt it work for virtual devices?10:29
jo__or do I misunderstand?10:29
ActionParsnip1jo__: auto ethX:Y   means the device should be up on boot10:29
ActionParsnip1jo__: i am unsure for virtuals10:30

ActionParsnip1theadmin: the old kernels are kept so if you install a new kernel and it is bad then you can still boot to the original10:37
andhi all10:37
theadminThat's what i have.10:37

lucentcomputer janitor is a nice way to remove old kernels10:38
ActionParsnip1theadmin: thats fine, you have 2 kernels10:38

etfblucent: No, it's pretty normal for a new battery.  It's getting better over time.10:39
ActionParsnip1theadmin: this will also autoremve it from grub during the process10:39
theadminActionParsnip1: Well, i have a new kernel upgrade loading in. Will say if it works fine and then see how to remove old ones10:39
ActionParsnip1theadmin: the 2nd command removes all the modules and header files for the kernel you just removed10:40
etfblucent: How do you mean?  As in, set the warning limit?10:40
lucentetfb: yeah10:40
lucentetfb: makes sense, doesn't it?10:40
lucentit's just a number, don't care what it is10:40
ActionParsnip1theadmin: you get people with netbooks on 4Gb HDDs with like 6 kernels and they wonder why they gots no space10:40
etfblucent: Trouble is that it's adapting: suppose there's a "real" amount of charge that we'll call X.  Today, it might think that's 20%.  Tomorrow, it will think it's 15%.10:41
theadminActionParsnip1: Well, i'd expect an upgrade to remove the old version of any soft.10:41
lucentetfb: if you don't want my help, ok.10:41
ActionParsnip1theadmin: its not an upgrade, its a seperate app10:41
theadmin...then why does it show up in upgrade manager!?10:42
etfblucent: Well, it wasn't quite the answer to the question I asked, is all.  I was kind of hoping there was a way to force the battery to reassess its own assumptions...10:42
ActionParsnip1theadmin: as it is a later version number but a kernel is a very key piece of softare so if you upgraded it to be the only kernel and you didnt have something to roll back yo you would be heavily screwed10:42
ActionParsnip1theadmin: its not some high level crappy inconsequential app like a browser10:43
ActionParsnip1theadmin: so they are kept10:43
theadminActionParsnip1: Damn. Can i opt out of kernel upgrades for a while somehow?10:43
etfbtheadmin: Indeed - ActionParsnip1 is 100% correct (my battery would say 140% correct).  One thing that breaks a lot is suspend/resume.  To debug it, it's useful to have old kernels around.10:44
ActionParsnip1theadmin: sure you can tell apt to lock the version number and the package will be ignored10:44
theadminActionParsnip1: Please tell me how.10:44
ActionParsnip1theadmin: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-apt-get.en.html#s-pin10:45

anvooversize: OK11:07
oversizeanvo: in it there should be a Setting: "DocumentRoot" pointing to e.g. /var/www11:08
oversizeanvo: and <Directory ""> Setting with the same path, and thats where you unpack phpmyadmin into, but use a folder for phpmyadmin like  /var/www/myadmin  ... which should make your myadmin available at http://localhost/myadmin11:09

shyam_ki have something weird with pm-suspend and pm-hibernate. I have given pm-suspend as lid close action for acpi, so everytime i close the lid of my laptop, it suspends the system.11:41

leaf-sheep!chroot | JuJuBee12:52
ubottuJuJuBee: chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebootstrapChroot)12:52
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot12:52

psineticok, i'm gonna vent now. i'm just frustrated, so sorry if i offend anyone. But really....wtf is the problem with ubuntu? I had to reinstall it three times in four weeks, each because there was an OS problem with the install causing various different problems. i FINALLY got an install that is stable and smooth-sailing, except for this dvd thing everything has worked perfectly so far. but really...it makes no sense to me why i should spend three weeks t14:05
psinetico a month LITERALLY FIXING the FRESH ubuntu operating system because it didn't install itself right the first time or it isn't setup to "work" correctly upon initial setup.14:05
trap2mohan1, thanks for those searches. I think I will now do some hit and trial with the vsync and hsync in the xorg.conf modeline and check will they move the postion. :) !14:05
