zcat[1]LEE20: you could just run the install CD again, have it resize windows further, quit out of the automatic install and go back to the partitoner and remove all the ubuntu ones and reinstall in the 'bigger' free space... no need to fix mbr or anything, the installer will figure it out00:42

Celrocroger2: There might be a setting to display All Open-Source Packages, if you are using the Add/Remove Programs package manager00:43
zcat[1]LEE20: I'd start by booting into windows and defragging, perhaps even resize the partiton using the windows disk management... then boot the ubuntu install cd and do a 'manual' partitioning, get rid of everything but windows NTFS partitions and remake the Ubuntu ones how you want them00:44

itaihi, i have a DVD burnt with Vista, it is formated as UDF , Ubuntu (intrepid) doesn't even see it, it can play normal DVDs . I googled a bit and found a Linux UDF project but it seems to be geared towards BluRay which is not what I need, any advice?01:30
velkoLopta|t_a|, i don't understand. is this a question or you just need to let your feelings out? i don't use ubuntu at all. for a good reason...01:30
Geekneeusmzawieska: You can get the drivers from the nvidia website and it'll sort out your x configuration file too01:30
KorlisI have a Micro Innovations webcam, model # IC014C that I can not get to work on my Ubuntu 9.04 install01:31
Lopta|t_a|@velko I want to hear your opinion and what do you think what should I do01:31
Geekneeusvelko: What is your good reason?01:32
knoppiesKorlis, have you searched the ubuntu forums for a fix? I would assume you looking for drivers.01:32
velkoLopta|t_a|, in the short term - compile iotop and sort out the problems of the server. in the long term - replace ubuntu by debian or bsd01:33

knoppieskismet, I fixed it by uninstalling it, but if its your banshee thats using 100%, then I dont think they related01:37

kismetno it dosen't have visual effects or any... Geekneeus.. but if i run banshee -- debug there are some debug output like: TrackInfoDisplay RenderAnimation : 29.00FPS01:43
voxstephans: not certain, but im fairly sure it's the same thing01:43
[-jon-]lstarnes: but does that include deleting? =\01:43
kismetmaybe it has to do something with that01:43
lstarnes[-jon-]: if the directory containing it is not using the sticky bit, anyone may delete it01:43
lstarnes[-jon-]: if the sticky bit is there, only the owner may do that01:43
arand[-jon-]: and yes that also means anyone can delete them01:43
[-jon-]the owner of the file or the owner of the directory01:43

ctmjrstephans: i use mplayer with nvidia vdpau driver and watch 1080p movies at 25% to 30% full screen with a 2.0 gig processor01:48
voxstephans: it's not about you getting past it, it's about the amount of clout that the MPAA have. nvidia/ati/etc have basicly been slapped around so they wont put the hardware-decoding instructions in their non-windows graphics drivers01:48
stephansctmjr - what option is that?01:48
voxstephans: it's entirely stupid and complicated01:48
assoguerozen_sxdamn that thunar is crap01:48
kismetGeekneeus: how to disable that01:48
nikemikebl: That's kind of an old driver.  YOu should try ath5k (or ath9k if your card is 802.11n Atheros)01:49
stephansvox, ok I get it... they win I guess...01:49
mzawieskathis msg appears when i type gksudo nvidia-settings in terminal01:49
d9500stephans: it's not so much that you'd have to crack any drm to play the hi-def videos, it's that the mpaa or other agents acting on behalf of the studios may have thereatened graphics card manufacturers with legal action if they provide hardware decoding of movie files on an operating system that doesn't verify "protected patch" (approved graphics card, approved connector, approved monitor, etc.) before playing hi-def content.01:49
mzawieskaYou do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.01:49
voxstephans: a solution is being worked on, but it's a while off01:50
d9500nonetheless, nvidia's binary driver does, i think, provide hardware decoding of h264 video, in presumably any resoilution, via the "vdpau" library, which should be present in the lastest nvidia binary driver packages.01:50
KorlisGeekneeus: my webcam is not supported by gspca01:50
itaimzawieska, most probably "sudo nvidia-xconfig"01:50

hedkandianyone know about making a package for the revu?01:51

Geekneeusubuntu_: The choice however is yours01:57
hedkandiwhat a bizarre thing to do01:57

ubuntu_so, if i restart, and install it from the live CD to my HDD, things will be better.  AS LONG as i DONT put it on the same partition.02:09
wrapsterDaZ: its a 64bit machine.. so i need extra pkgs is it?02:09
knoppiesubuntu_, in the ubuntu installer, I think there is an aption to resize your windows partition, and then create a new one for ubuntu, but I would backup all the data on your windows install, or use a seperate HDD/partition02:09
jatsubuntu_: yes.02:09
knoppieswow, my spelling sucks.02:09
jatsknoppies, ubuntu_: I don't think you can resize partitions from the Ubuntu installer.02:10
ramxzerok im using ubuntu 7.04 and i need use test disk for fix my hard disk partition02:10
DaZwrapster: did you run nvidia-xconfig? :f02:10
ubuntu_okay, i will try and do that, and see what happenes02:10
soreaujats: You can02:10
ramxzerodunno what version have to download02:10
kismetwhy is banshee using up to 100% of my cpu over 30 sec if i switch track02:10
d9500ubuntu: right. if you have a second hard drive in the machine, then you can install ubuntu to that hard drive during the installation process. the gui installer will ask you what partition to install ubuntu on, and you can select the second hard drive. if you only have one hard drive, then you will need to resize your vista partition.02:11
HBXwhats the command to upgrade02:11
knoppieskismet, im not sure. look on ubuntu forums, if you cant find an answer, use a different player.02:11

mQQshhey.. im trying to install a screensaver.  In the install directions it says to unpack the files to /usr/share/gnome-screensaver/.  The only problem I'm having is I can't locate the "share" folder in my user folder.  Any suggestions?02:12
stephansctmgr, ok loking..02:12

kismetknoppies: a nother player... i tried but amarok won't work either... no sound... rhythmbox... has no artist name and album aritst seperation02:13

IhateapacheGuys, ubuntu server is working great right now... its good on my 8 year old p3 computer02:13
Ihateapacheit only has 384 megs of ram02:14
Ihateapacheand it works perfect02:14
GeekneeusmQQsh, atleast generally it is on ubuntu, it's definately the /usr/share folder that's missing and not the gnome-screensaver for?02:14
SeaPhorIdleOne, you around?02:14
IdleOneSeaPhor: heh, yes02:14
mQQshgeekneeus, my username on the machine is Doug so im looking in /home/doug/ and the closest thing I see to share is Public.  I tried looking at the hidden folders and still not there02:14
wrapsterim downloading envyng.. lets see once its done ....02:14
wrapsterthanks DaZ02:14
GeekneeusmQQsh: /usr/share isn't in your home directory02:15
soreaumQQsh: It's /usr/share from your '/' or root directory. Not from /home02:15
CupofDiceAny linux app to tell me what is taking up my HD space?02:15
GeekneeusmQQsh: type cd /usr/share in your terminal02:15
d9500mQQsh: do the following. open a terminal. type "cd /usr" then type "ls" (minus the quotes) it should show a share directory among the others02:15
GeekneeusmQQsh: then ls -lart02:15
scuniziCupofDice: look in Applications>accessories> for Disk Analyser02:15
d9500Geekneus, you beat me to it.02:15

CupofDiceThanks Daz and scunizi02:16
Geekneeusd9500: haha sorry :)02:16
SeaPhorIdleOne, could you give the link to where it says about OPs and their needing to be un-op'd and not be overbearing? I need someone in my channel to read it ;-) sorry for the OT just dont want to PM w/o knowing me02:16
mQQshd9500, geekneeus ok i did cd /usr then ls and it shows the share directory.. how can i open the directory through terminal?02:17
KB1JWQSeaPhor: It's on freenode.net02:17
GeekneeusmQQsh: cd /usr/share02:17
GeekneeusmQQsh: which directory do you want to open?02:17
IdleOneSeaPhor: msg me02:17
mQQshgeekneeus, the share directory02:17
GeekneeusmQQsh: You can also type nautilus /usr/share02:18
GeekneeusmQQsh: If you have nautilus installed02:18
mQQshgeekneeus, i tried cd /usr/share and it just moves me to the folder in terminal.  I need to get to the screen saver folder in it then drag a folder into it02:18
mQQshgeekneeus, oh i got it02:19
mQQshgeekneeus, thanks02:19
GeekneeusmQQsh, do you know how to use a file manager?02:19
mQQshgeekneeus, yeah but i wsa just looking in the wrong place.. thanks again though02:19
GeekneeusmQQsh: If you're using a file manager you will not be able to copy the file to the /usr/share directory without changing to sudo02:19
mQQshkeeneeus, i wont be able to drag it in?02:20
DaZ!tab| mQQsh02:20
ubottumQQsh: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.02:20
GeekneeusmQQsh: no, you can run your filemanager with the terminal with the correct permissions to do so. Just type "sudo nautilus"02:20
GeekneeusmQQsh: Be careful though02:20
GeekneeusmQQsh: I'm assuming you're using gnome and nautilus for that command as it's the default with ubuntu02:21
scunizimQQsh: use gksudo nautilus .. gksudo for all graphical programs02:21
soreauscunizi: That sounds horrible.. so now I should use gksu compiz because it is a gui prog? heh02:22
DaZGeekneeus: people here recommend gksudo over sudo for window apps :f02:22
Geekneeusscunizi: That wouldn't make any different, gksudo is mainly for menu items02:22
FlannelDaZ, Geekneeus: that's because sudo with graphical apps can break things.02:22
necr0tikwhat package has the md5 tool?02:22
FlannelGeekneeus: No, gksu(do) is for graphical apps02:22
HeliosServiceFactory unable to create Service of class jrun.servlet.jrpp.JRun\ProxyService02:22

soreaua_: The command I showed you is more or less pseudo code, meaning it only represents what you should do but is not actual syntax. You would have to know the name of your physical device in /dev and an empty directory in your file system on which to mount that file system02:41
takamaroutyler_d1, uhh.  I must be using the command wrong.  It's giving me some nonsense about the ntfs-3g command..  Is sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/data -f -t ntfs-3g    correct?02:41

thedude42fabian_, so when you plug it in, do you see it in dmesg?03:17
knoppiesmUrshEd, I cant remember if it is case sensitive, but try to match case with your yahoo account. And it might pay to log into your yahoo using a web browser, to make sure that the account details are correct03:17

scunizieido: you must have one of the newer ones..03:27

thedude42fabian_, do you have any other usb mass storage devices you have tested?03:30
Psibottueh, ok03:30
Psibottuthanks knoppies03:30
a_bastid_raZor: ok here it is. the disk I'm concerned with is the 1 Tb drive. http://paste.ubuntu.com/301725/03:30
eidoscunizi, yeah i have the pen working through there, on windows driver wacom has a gui that lets you define a command or sequence of key mappings when pressing a key on the pad03:30
* Psibottu gives you a special blessing under the table ;)03:30
fabian_thedude42: yes, 2 500GB. They mount fine. Same filesystem. NTFS.03:30
eidoscunizi, i was hoping ubuntu had something similar03:31
scunizieido: nice.. there's lots of references on the web. maybe the gimp channel will have more people with tablet experience03:31
Psibottughj, did you seriously just write "n"?03:31
Barridusi'm noticing an icon in the notify area (by where the wifi signal and battery meter) that looks like a padlock and mousing over it says something like "drop all elevated priviledges".  what does that mean and why did it go away03:31
thedude42fabian_, so if it's the size of the volume, you might try to see that by creating a smaller partition, but my guess is you already have data on the drive03:31
eidoyeah  in there currently no response03:31
scunizieido: also the inkscape channel03:31
xiambaxcalebi, they just went live with the feed.03:32
billybigriggeranyone aware of a good newsgroup reader that supports ssl and atleast 10 connections? possibly with a gui?03:32
fabian_thedue42: yes, I have data on it. I think it is because the partition is GPT. But in hal.03:32
eidoscunizi, thanks forgot about inscape, if i find something i'll let you know03:32
scunizieido: thanks03:32

ctmjrdanni_: which one will not compile03:39

d9500GodfatherofEire: the command I listed will output the information in synaptic's man page to a text file called synapticnfo, which will be created in your home directory. you can change the directory to, for example, /home/yourusername/Desktop to put the text file on the desktop03:56
GodfatherofEired9500, thanks03:56
=== maximus is now known as Guest39463
d9500then you can open the text file in gedit, kate, etc.03:56
candykornwhich one would you suggest?03:56
GodfatherofEirecandykorn, I'd suggest removing gnash, swfdec, and just keeping flash-player-installer03:56
danni_ctmjr: thx man i got it fixed i found it on google .. i fixed the error and compled it thx03:57
candykorngooseberry what?03:57
Guest39463hey, i updated ubuntu, it replaced menu.lst, and now i cant boot, but luckily i made a back up, only thing is, the partition is encrypted with luks, how would i got about decrytping the partition and replacing the new menu.lst with the back up?03:57
GodfatherofEired9500, thanks. Just tryin to explain to a friend exactly what the aircrack-ng suite entails03:57

FlannelGuest39463: When you boot, you get a grub> prompt, right?03:58
candykorndoes ubuntu support divx?03:58
GodfatherofEirecandykorn, after those 2 are removed, and the redundancy is gone, you shouldnt have a problem03:58
bastid_raZorcandykorn: vlc and mplayer will play it.03:59
Guest39463it says grub loading, then i get 9.01000 sd 6:0:0:0 [sdc] assuming drive cache write through03:59
GodfatherofEirecandykorn, yeah, it does, just install all the gstreamer plugins (good, bad, ugly, restricted, etc)03:59
candykornstreaming off the net?03:59
FlannelGuest39463: Oh, sorry.  Misread your question.  What you can do to boot successfully is (at the grub menu) hit escape, choose an option, hit 'e' and then you can modify that entry ot match your backed up menu.lst, and then that'll boot.03:59
ctmjrdanni_: your welcome but sounds like you found it on your own03:59
candykornwill itopen in browser or sepreate window?03:59
FlannelGuest39463: Once there, you'll need to make sure you fix your menu.lst properly, since whatever changes you made to it weren't done properly this time around (apparently, if its broken now)03:59
GodfatherofEirecandykorn, with those plugins it should allow you to stream it in the browser03:59
Guest39463Flannel, okay, but the backup is on the partition im trying to boot, which is encrypted with luks04:00
candykornunder sounds and video for removal?04:00
Guest39463Flannel, how would i go about reading the partition?04:00
FlannelGuest39463: Do you remember what changes you made to your menu.lst?04:00
xorwhyTrying to update kernel to 2.6.31. Would prefer to use Synaptic, Please help me  add the proper repository to apt?04:00
Guest39463Flannel,  no, it was automated, IE ubuntu update04:00
FlannelGuest39463: I'm not familiar with LUKS, sorry.04:00
GodfatherofEirecandykorn, just search swfdec and gnash in synaptic and they should come up, then search gstreamer plugins, and then install what comes up (and then install ubuntu-restricted-extras if you really want to)04:01
Guest39463Flannel, ic, me neither.. google dont fail me now, lol, thanks flannel04:02
Deihmosi tried eeebuntu and the software center had the ratings but the one in ubuntu doesn't. is there a way i can add that?04:02

d9500xorwhy: what kernel and what ubuntu release are you currently using?04:10
=== Guest19339 is now known as zachtib|linux
xorwhyd9500: 2.6.28 jaunty 9.0404:11
Geekneeusxorwhy: to the latest kernel version?04:15
d9500xorwhy: and you want to upgrade just the kernel, not do a dist-upgrade, but it has to be done through synaptic and not by downloading the .deb files?04:16
xorwhyGeekneeus: yes/04:16
candykornwow irc on ubuntu is tooo diffrent04:16
xorwhyd9500: I will download the deb files if synaptic is difficult, I preferred synaptic incase of dependency requirements.04:17
Geekneeusxorwhy: You need to download the latest version from kernel.org, extract it.. customize it /compile install04:17
Kuroganeany1 knows where is the config  pure-ftpd.conf because here /etc/pure-ftpd/ is not there04:17
xorwhyGeekneeu by customize it, could I significantly improve performance?04:17
xorwhykurogan use the locate command04:18
Geekneeusxorwhy: It's possible, though you shouldn't really play around with it if you can't even install it :P04:18
d9500xorwhy: well, gdebi will tell you what dependencies you need, if you try to install the .deb by double clicking on it to open gdebi. so far, the only ppa i've found for newer kernels has no files in it.04:18
Geekneeusxorwhy: You can remove things from the kernel that you don't need, enable features that aren't default etc04:18
d9500xorwhy: you might try enabling jaunty-backports in your software sources, though unfortunately (or fortunately, if you happen to like bleeding-egde software) that may pull a lot of other newer pakcages too04:18
xorwhyGeekneeu it wouldn't be difficult.04:19
xorwhyd9500: the PPA is http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.31/04:19
xorwhyd9500 Can't do that, disk space nazi over here.04:19

yoophglupwell I have a multiple monitor setup and sometimes my wife would like to use the internet while I'm using it. It would be awsome to use 2 mice so I can use one screen while she uses the other. I've read about MPX but I can't seem to get it to work.04:59

TBirdi run mirc in a vm :(05:24
macoTBird: you can either use "quassel" as standalone or you can have a quassel core on a server and then connect to it with quassel client. thats similar to having irssi in screen and ssh'ing to it...except that you get a gui. but you get the irssi/screen/ssh benefit of being always online and always having scrollback05:24

prince_jammysdon't check anything. attempt to perform the backup, and the tool will error out.05:54
saracen1Geekneeus: and it would probably be done using a one liner on the cron its self, like tar /dev/whatever /dev/sda  sort of thing05:54

Shtli want to download the ubuntu Karmic repositories only with deb mirror, how can i do this please????05:57
lstarnesShtl: #ubuntu+1 is for karmic05:58
saracen1thanks for the help guys i think i got it now05:58
krsnalstarnes thx. i was in this menu, but i cant find it even here. if i deactive "automati updates" in the window you indicated, still i am asked for updates... if i check "daily" i am still asked more than daily ...05:58
DigitalKiwisaracen1: can I see what you have?05:58
lstarneskrsna: so you never want to update or be asked for updates?05:59
=== Jordan_U_ is now known as Jordan_U
GeekneeusI have trouble sleeping.05:59
krsnalstarnes (typo). yes. no asking for updates05:59
saracen1DigitalKiwi: i didnt write the 1 minute script yet, but i think i know what to do05:59
RabbitbunnyGeekneeus: #defocus05:59
hadeanCan someone tell if i can make a script that takes the focus to the Terminal and runs a command? Need it for saving time @ coding...05:59
lstarneskrsna: then uncheck the "check for updates" bnx05:59
GeekneeusRabbitbunny: heh, was waiting for a channel suggestion :)06:00
Rabbitbunnyhadean: You don't need a script, man gnome-terminal, specifically the -e flag.06:00
lstarneskrsna: but remember that disabling all updates may lead to huge security risks associated with outdated packages06:00
prince_jammyssaracen1: i wouldn't suppress tar's error message either, if you are using your own custom one. redirect both tar's stderr and your message to the log.06:00
hadeanRabbitbunny: thanks a lot06:00
saracen1prince_jammys: ok that seems like a good idea06:00
krsnalstarnes i have unchecked the "check for updates" box, thats what i am saying... this menu seems not to work06:01
hadeanRabbitbunny: Not a thing of my Window-manager (metacity) ?06:01
lstarneskrsna: what about it doesn't work?06:01
krsnalstarnes it still asks me06:01
lstarneskrsna: how often?06:02
hadeanlike ... changing the focus to another window?06:02
Rabbitbunnyhadean: Hmm, got me there, you're going to have to find what it uses instead of gnome-terminal, and finds its' -e flag.06:02
krsnalstarnes on boot-up, after editing sources.list and so on. and more often than daily06:02
=== YDdraigGoch is now known as Guest72665
lstarneskrsna: which version of ubuntu are you using?06:03
SunilThahaHi all, is it safe to run fsck on '/' ?06:03
vigokrana: Not really relevant, but it makes sense as the question is posed: http://artlung.com/smorgasborg/C_R_Y_P_T_O_N_O_M_I_C_O_N.shtml  ,,, is a good read also.06:03
krsnalstarnes jauntyx06:03
lstarneskrsna: have you installed any of the updates?06:04
FlannelSunilThaha: You need to do it while / isn't mounted.  While booting is an easy way to do it.06:04
Flannel!fsck | SunilThaha06:04
ubottuSunilThaha: fsck 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 reboot06:04
krsnalstarnes yes06:04
hadeanRabbitbunny: The problem is that i cant find any documentation of metacity that goes further than documentation...06:04
lstarneskrsna: it could be an issue with the cron scripts used with it or with the update notifier appler06:04
hadeanis compiz an idea?06:04
SunilThahaubottu: thank you, that was short and sweet :)06:04
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)06:04
krsnalstarnes i can see that avoiding this popup can only be done by deleting the updates lines in souces.list06:04
lstarneskrsna: there may be another way06:05
krsnalstarnes how can i repair the update nofifier appler06:05
lstarneskrsna: applet06:05
SunilThahaFlannel: is ubottu  a bot ?06:05
lstarnesSunilThaha: yes06:05
vigo!best bot06:05
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about best bot06:05
FlannelSunilThaha: yes06:06
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about fart06:06
vigo!bot abuse06:06
ubottuPlease don't play with the bots, or else... Also see !behaviour and !msgthebot06:06
ubottuPlease investigate with me only with "/msg ubottu Bot" or in #ubuntu-bots.  Search for factoids with "/msg ubottu !search factoid".06:06
krsnalstarnes the cron jobs are crazy here anyway.06:06
vigoThere is also an online Ubottu.06:07
lstarneskrsna: right-click on the applet and see if the "show notifications" box is checked06:07
krsnalstarnes what applet?06:08
lstarneskrsna: the update notifier applet06:08
krsnalstarnes ? is this the window we were talking about?06:08
lstarneskrsna: no06:09
lstarneskrsna: the applet that displays the update popups06:09
ubottuPlease investigate with me only with "/msg ubottu Bot" or in #ubuntu-bots.  Search for factoids with "/msg ubottu !search factoid".06:10
knoppiesthat makes very little sense.06:10
krsnalstarnes. ok. ic. if i remember correctly it is the same window as the one we were talking about. i will go for the cronjobs rather06:11
lstarneskrsna: no06:11
SunilThahaFlannel: sudo shutdown -F -r now didn't force a fsck06:11
lstarneskrsna: it is not the software sources window06:11
SunilThahaany idea why?06:11
FlannelSunilThaha: What version of Ubuntu are you on?06:11
lstarneskrsna: check there before messing with the cronjobs06:11
krsnalstarnes so how can i see the update notifier applet?06:11
ubuntuGrguys when i am trying to do apt-get install fuser i get nothing06:11
FlannelSunilThaha: Interesting.  Try this: "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now"06:12
lstarneskrsna: update the package list.  if there are updates and the applet is working, it should appear in one of the panels06:12
FlannelSunilThaha: (that'll reboot)06:12
SunilThahalet me check06:12

lstarnesknoppies: ps aux | grep name or pgrep name06:13
SunilThahaFlannel:  I read its faster, so chose that for my external HDD06:13
krsnalstarnes so how i see the update notifier applet?06:13
knoppiesthanks lstarnes06:13
lstarneskrsna: when updates are available it should appear automatically06:13
lstarneskrsna: it appears only when updates are available or when it detects another package manager working or when it finds update errors06:14
krsnalstarnes ic . well, thanks a lot for your help. it is really kind of you06:14
FlannelSunilThaha: ext4 isn't safe until Karmic really.  Jaunty users suffered dataloss occasionally06:14
SunilThahaFlannel: Ooops thats scary06:15
ubuntuGrFlannel whats the difference between Karmic and Jaunty ?06:15
SunilThahakernel ?06:15
lstarnesubuntuGr: karmic = 9.10, jaunty = 9.0406:15

PerryArmstrongjoebodo_; thanks...after downloading where do i need to put it??06:55
macoquaredscube: or reinstall. either one. skipping releases on upgrade is not supported except to go from one LTS to another. the next being 10.0406:55
voxchemjeff: use the -alternate cd06:56
chemjeffvox: I did, the same thing happens06:56
macoXelticSore: type "/join #newchannel"06:56
XelticSoreno i mean06:56
chemjeffvox: It says that it can't mount the CD-ROM06:56

XelticSoreim using XChat06:56
voxchemjeff: what hardware?06:56
quaredscubemaco, so every 6 months I must reinstall?06:56
joebodo_PerryArmstrong, you can put it in either your home directory (like /home/xxxx/eclipse) or in /opt/eclipse06:56
macoquaredscube: you can upgrade06:56
icarus-cXelticSore: hit Ctrl+T06:57
macoquaredscube: but you cannot upgrade from 8.04 to 9.10 because 8.10 and 9.04 happened in between06:57
joebodo_PerryArmstrong, it'll run in just about any location you unzip it to06:57
macoquaredscube: you can upgrade through 8.10 and 9.0406:57
chemjeffvox: Intel Core i7 920, Asus P6T Deluxe MB, 6 GB Corsair DDR3@1600 RAM, what else do you want to know?06:57
PerryArmstrongjoebodo_; okk thats it right...thanks...i am leaving then as the xchat is taking much of my bandwidth06:57
macoquaredscube: or every 6 months upgrade as new versions are released06:57
macoquaredscube: or every 2 years upgrade as new LTS versions are released06:57
icarus-cchemjeff: why not xeon06:57
macoquaredscube: but distances > 6 months and < 2 years require more work06:58
chemjefficarus-c: Because I wanted the LGA 1366 socket06:58
PerryArmstrongjoebodo_; cya then and thanks for the help...06:58
macoquaredscube: by upgrade through, i men tell 8.04 to go to 8.10, then tell 8.10 to go to 9.04, then tell 9.04 to go to 9.1006:58
voxchemjeff: thats.. very weird. i dont have an answer for that06:58
PerryArmstrongjoebodo_; i was hit by this problem for more than a week and i couldn't get a solution...thanks once again06:59
quaredscubemaco, does upgrading to the new 6 month version require manual effort on my part, or does Ubuntu include the necessaries when I use the update tools?06:59
chemjeffvox: I was able to install Gentoo on the same system but I can't install Ubuntu for some reason06:59
PerryArmstrongand thanks to others ....maco ans others who tried helping me06:59
macoquaredscube: its in the update tools06:59
chemjeffvox: I did an lspci and it is misassigning my PCI devices, it thinks my hard drive is a network card, etc. Could this be the problem?06:59
macoquaredscube: in system -> administration -> software sources, there is an option to either notify you about all new versions, only new LTS verisons, or not at all06:59
quaredscubemaco, thanks07:00
macoquaredscube: set it to the all new versions setting, and it should offer to go to 8.1007:00
macoquaredscube: er the second it = the update manager07:00
quaredscubemaco, why does it require more effort to upgrade to the next LTS?07:00
voxchemjeff: i'd wager that's a yes07:00
macoquaredscube: one LTS to the next LTS is a single upgrade. its easy07:01
chemjeffvox: Is there a way to correctly scan the PCI devices?07:01
voxchemjeff: might be something about the chipset that kernel doesnt like - check launchpad07:01
macoquaredscube: its when you want to go from 1 version to another where they are *not* both LTS and also not sequential that its more annoying07:01
macoquaredscube: the effort required to make skipping releases easy is somethng that is only expended for LTS07:02
* icarus-c loves rolling release distro somehow07:03
quaredscubemaco, what do you think of Mint?07:04
macoquaredscube: never tried it07:04
icarus-cquaredscube: it is ubuntu with more addons to enhance user experience07:05
_JacK_polling socket has returned, but read no one byte, what is the problem?07:05
quaredscubeI know07:05
quaredscubeBut do you disagree with its principles?07:05
icarus-cquaredscube: what principle07:06
icarus-cquaredscube: it is just ubuntu with a different skin07:06

macoicarus-c: how does that make sense?07:07
U-b-u-n-t-uicarus-c, will that show when it was taken or when it was uploaded07:07
icarus-cmodification time *may* tell07:08
icarus-cU-b-u-n-t-u: does the picture got tags07:08
U-b-u-n-t-uicarus-c, I have no idea07:08
chemjeffWell I will try it with Ubuntu 9.04 and I'll see what happens07:08
icarus-cU-b-u-n-t-u: i mean metadata07:09
macoU-b-u-n-t-u: what icarus-c said just shows today's date07:09
icarus-cmaco: man date07:09
ubottuThe "man" command brings up the Linux manual pages for the command you're interested in. Try "man intro" at the  command line, or see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal | Manpages online: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/07:09
icarus-c-r, --reference=FILE07:09
icarus-c              display the last modification time of FILE07:09
macoicarus-c: ah ok. was thinking of date -R07:09
macoU-b-u-n-t-u: the python exif tools may help07:09
macoU-b-u-n-t-u: lemme see how they work07:10
U-b-u-n-t-uicarus-c, if it was downloaded today then it will show the file as being todays date07:10
U-b-u-n-t-uI want to know if there is one that shows the actual date taken07:10
icarus-cU-b-u-n-t-u: try right click on the picture then see properties07:10
U-b-u-n-t-uicarus-c, I did that07:10
U-b-u-n-t-ushows todays date07:10
icarus-cU-b-u-n-t-u: gnome?07:10
icarus-cU-b-u-n-t-u: look at the image tab07:11
icarus-cfrom nautilus07:11
icarus-ci mean when you look at properties07:11
macoU-b-u-n-t-u: ok got it07:11
U-b-u-n-t-unice how?07:11
macoU-b-u-n-t-u: so if you want a way to script this, the exif package gets you the command exif. "exif -l file.jpg | grep date" will show you teh tags relating to the date07:12
icarus-cexif data is shown in Properties under image tab07:12
macoU-b-u-n-t-u: the 0x1234 thing on the left are what you need. "exif -t 0x1234 file.jpg"07:12
=== kb is now known as Guest44059
macoU-b-u-n-t-u: in the case of one of my files i had "0x9003 Date and Time (original)" so i did "exif -t 0x9003 file.jpg"07:13
U-b-u-n-t-uok trying it now one sec07:13
icarus-cwould exiv be a better tool?.....07:13
icarus-chex number is scary07:14
macoicarus-c: if you wanna script it to death....07:14
icarus-crun exiv2 without any option would just print all meta data07:15
U-b-u-n-t-uum it came back with does not contain EXIF data!07:16

Harrison_Bergeroi have a question about networking.  I want to move large files 700mb or greater to my PC in the cellar which is running winXP from this PC which is Ubuntu 9.04.07:26
Harrison_Bergerowhat is causing the transfer to "time out"07:27
icarus-cHarrison_Bergero: bad connection07:27
Harrison_Bergero3/4 of the way through the transfer07:27
h4ck3rzHarrison_Bergero ftp best off i think07:27
voxcrohakon: thats not helpful07:27
Harrison_BergeroIcarus-c....i can understand that if it happened all the time07:27
crohakonvox; was not meant to be07:27
Harrison_Bergerobut it only happens sometimes07:27
icarus-ch4x0rz shouldn't recommend people to ftp..07:28
noshelterHarrison_Bergero if ur ursing wireless I got that too often07:28
Harrison_Bergeroh4ck3rz....ftp across the LAN?07:28
crohakonHarrison_Bergero; what protocol are you using, SMB?07:28
Rabbitbunnycrohakon: http://imagebin.org/6916807:28
Harrison_Bergeromoshelter....its cabled07:28
Harrison_Bergerocrohakon...good question...i dont know07:28

icarus-cRabbitbunny: what the hell... you don't make use of multi workspaces?!07:28
_nitswhen my machines load average goes higher than 2.0, then the system will shutdown atm, any clues?07:28
vox_nits: possibly overheating07:29
Harrison_Bergerocrohakon...just went into the networking tab and found the windows network and clicked my way through07:29
crohakonHarrison_Bergero; wireless connection?07:29
Rabbitbunnyicarus-c: no, all the stuff fits at the bottom.07:29
crohakonHarrison_Bergero; tried setting up an ftp server on the computer in the cellar?07:30
noshelterHarrison_Bergero does only the file transfer stop, or do u loose all network connectivity?07:30
crohakonRabbitbunny; Nice, SimAnt? Is that some kind of game?07:30
Harrison_Bergeromoshelter...only file transfer07:30
_nitsvox: how can i improve performance, i mean wat i could do to avoid shut down?07:30
Rabbitbunnycrohakon: it's simulated ants.07:30
icarus-cRabbitbunny: http://imagebin.org/6916907:30
crohakonRabbitbunny; I once had a game called SimAnts for the SNES... man I miss that game.07:31
Harrison_Bergerocould it be that i cant connect simulaneously.....i have VNC running as well07:31
vox_nits: install sensors-applet and see if your cpu is overheating07:31
h4ck3rzcould just be a timeout feature in the server sounds weird07:31
Harrison_Bergeroone connected via VNC, second connection by network tab in ubuntu07:31

Harrison_Bergerodoes this mean i have a faulty CAT5 cable_07:32
noshelterHarrison_Bergero try to mount the share -- I'm not sure if u can do a windows share as CIFS, but try it out, Nautilus mounts with something but I have no clue with what07:33
icarus-cnoshelter: yes you can07:33
Harrison_Bergeronoshelter.....the share is on the desktop...i suppose its already mounted?07:33
crohakonRabbitbunny; oh? I have always had a bit of a love for ants. I spent three summers of my childhood watching a red ant nation grow and die in the woods behind our house. lol07:33

crohakonicarus-c; don't judge me =)07:34
* icarus-c invites people to play sauerbraten07:34
noshelterHarrison_Bergero yes it is mounted, but there is a diff between smbfs and cifs, i think the latter is more relaible07:34
icarus-csmbfs is obsolete afaik07:34
icarus-cnautilus uses gvfs07:35
grawityicarus-c: smbfs has been obsoleted by cifs.07:35
noshelterthere u go07:35
Harrison_Bergeronoshelter...let me do a bit of reading on CIFS....bbl07:36
grawityicarus-c: and GnomeVFS/GVFS/GIO is a quite different thing.07:36
velko_icarus-c, it's better to say nothing than to say such nonsence07:36
grawity(GVFS is what GNOME uses now; GnomeVFS was the older thing)07:36
grawitynoshelter: Basically, CIFS is updated SMB. You can mount.cifs a Windows share and it will work fine.07:37
nosheltergrawity yup, i thought so, just haven't used a windows partition in over 5 years, so i kidna forgot07:37
Harrison_Bergeronoshelter....CIFS involves setting up a domain in windows.  Does this work better than workgroup networking?07:38
grawityHarrison_Bergero: No it doesn't.07:38
grawityHarrison_Bergero: CIFS can use workgroups just fine07:38
Harrison_Bergerogravity...here is what im referring to:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1230607:39

nosheltergrawity: don't have gnome anymore, using fluxbox, that's why i was hopping someone with gnome could share that with me07:54
jitenderi want to backup my full system07:54

psychuilHi guys.07:56
ActionParsnip!info rsync07:56
nosheltergrawity: yes i have gconftool-2, let me check it out07:56
ubottursync (source: rsync): fast remote file copy program (like rcp). In component main, is standard. Version 3.0.5-1ubuntu2 (jaunty), package size 330 kB, installed size 664 kB07:56

ActionParsnipjitender: its part of a standard install07:56
ActionParsnipjitender: you have it07:56
ActionParsnipjitender: then run: sudo apt-get install rsync07:57
nosheltergrawity: don't have that file, and xterm doesn't use by default i think (since it;s not a gtk app as far as I know)07:57
grawitynoshelter: You can use .gtkrc-2.0 to set GTK themes too - gtk-icon-theme-name = "Mist" // gtk-theme-name = "Clearlooks" // gtk-toolbar-style = GTK_TOOLBAR_BOTH_HORIZ //07:57
Harrison_Bergerook...novice question regarding file transfers....if there is no error message, can i assume the entire file was copied verbatim?07:57
grawitynoshelter: Yeah, xterm isn't GTK...07:57

jitenderis this Gadmin Rsync07:59
ActionParsnipjitender: not sure, its just rsync afaik07:59
nosheltergrawity: and i tried eterm and aterm as alt to xterm, but i couldn't get those to work with anything other than what xfontsel gives07:59
grawitynoshelter: Because fluxbox is written with xft support in mind, and Xterm is a pure X app, written way before Xft.07:59
Harrison_Bergeroicarus-c...where do i find the md5sumẞ07:59

gogetaknoppies: removed it for pidgin pretty quick08:34
ActionParsnipasfjio: there is a kernel module for nvidia, it needs creating using dkms each time you get a new kernel. If you use the packages this is done for you, if you use the .run file i'm not sure it completes it. You may want to reinstall it so the new module gets made08:35

JDahlwhere can mounted folders on the Desktop (e.g., network drives) be accessed from the filesystem (e.g., from a terminal) instead of nautilus?08:45
ActionParsnipasfjio: thats fine, you'll find jockey just installs the 180 driver for you08:45
icerootknoppies: the same as a shell-script in linux08:45
MonkeySilenthow to check kernel errors? printk(KERN_ERROR etc08:45
knoppiesal_ I may be wrong, but from what I understand a bash script is the Linux equivalent of the batch file.08:45
asfjioActionParsnip: You must run a dkms build for kernel 2.6.27-15-generic (i686) first. may be i need to run what you told me first?08:45
knoppiesiceroot, correct me if Im wrong.08:45
gogetaknoppies: thats a sh script08:46
al_knoppies: yes08:46
knoppiesgogeta, so then whats a bash file?08:46
ActionParsnipasfjio: its part of the postinst. If you dont see it you may need to add an extra bit to the command08:46
icerootknoppies: a file with commands08:46
gogetaknoppies: sh stands for shell script you can call it a bash file if you like i guess08:47
knoppiesthanks for the clarification. al_ you get that?08:47

Brucit borked my drive09:28
asfjioindus: question: is that updating my kernel or it is just some helper script as it says?09:28
BilliardBruc: borked?09:28
indusasfjio: it installs restricted modules which handle nvidia or similar drivers09:29
Brucyeah it only allocates only 200 meg of files09:29
Brucof space i mean09:29
Brucive got one terabytes ..09:29
BilliardBruc, try the manual partitioning option?09:29
asfjioindus: so this is only assosiated with graphic update? and if something goes wrong i can boot, but just with no GUI?09:30
Bruchmm iam to worried it might happend again.09:30

indusasfjio: no first reboot09:33
bigmack83_i have a bunch of .avi files i want to convert to mpeg so i can burn them to a dvd and watch them on a dvd player. what would the workflow be in ubuntu to do so? I have tried using devede but it seems to only be able to put four ~175Mb files onto one dvd.is there a better option?09:33
Brucok cool let me boot of the live cd...09:33
asfjioindus: rebooting..09:34
Billiardbigmack83_:  devede should allow more than 4 video files09:34
bigmack83_Billiard, yea thats what i thought. the only thing i can think of is that its trying to put all the extra files on to the dvd/iso as well.09:35
bigmack83_would it be easier or better to use ffmpeg to convert them all to mpeg first then just use dvdauthor or similar to burn them to dvd with menu to select the episode?09:36
offsensehello, is there any way to install gwibber on hardy heron?????09:36

asfjioindus: u here?09:41
indusasfjio: yes09:41
indusasfjio: i thought your PC exploded09:42
asfjioindus: i did "sudo apt-get --reinstall install nvidia-glx-180" and then "/etc/init.d/gdm restart" it says you need to update your configuration. new line. no device detected. running on low-graphic mode.09:43
indusasfjio: always restart after installing display drivers09:44

jitenderdear indus , tell me about cron09:45
bigmack83_Billiard, ok each avi i have is 170mb and selecting one in devede takes nearly 25% of the disk space on a dvd. so how am i supposed to fit more than 4 avi's onto the iso to burn it09:46
indusasfjio: did you install nvidia glx 180?09:46
jitenderany body know cron09:46
bigmack83_maybe its an option im not seeing then that needs to be changed?09:46
asfjioindus: yes, then restart gdm, but no reboot the pc itself.09:46
indusasfjio: you need to install nvidia-glx-legacy09:46
indusasfjio: your card is not supported by the 180 drivers09:47
indusasfjio: install the older ones09:47
Billiardbigmack83_: the bitrate settings maybe09:47
indusasfjio: sorry wait09:47
indusasfjio: install nvidia-glx-173 somethinh09:47
indusasfjio: then reboot09:48
asfjioindus: now i need to remove nvidia-glx-180? apt-get remove nvidia-glx-180 is that?09:48
ArabusHey, anyone know where to set the option where new windows on the gnome desktop are opened / positioned?09:48
indusasfjio: it will be automatically removed09:48
indusasfjio: no wonder the card was not found09:48
indusasfjio: the 173 driver is what u need09:48
bigmack83_Billiard, well even then it shouldnt go from 170 mb to nearly over 1gb for one avi file.09:48
jitendercron cron cron09:49
asfjioindus: done, now going to reboot. hope it wont explode :)09:49
bigmack83_Billiard, heh, well it seems that the default bit rate is 5001 kbps09:49

joaopintoCreap_, you can't10:30
joaopintoUbuntu does not allow to install multiple versions of the same package10:31
zvacetCreap_:  testing version probably have higher number10:31
aXaXintheadmin: yes it's installed the problem is, is that driver available in 9.04 or 9.10?10:31
theadminCreap_: Just stick to the stable version.10:31
theadminaXaXin: I see it in Synaptic, so yes it is. I have 9.0410:31
Creap_I need both though.10:32
aXaXini'm concerned beacause when i start the update to 9.04 it's says that it no longer supports the fglrx driver that i currently have installed10:32
theadminaXaXin: Huh. Maybe it's not the one then.10:33
MadpilotaXaXin, 9.04 and onward have much improved Free drivers for a lot of ATI vidcards. You could well not NEED fglrx anymore10:34

theadmin!help | Elias_11:12
ubottuElias_: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)11:12
Elias_I don't hear sound at all on this atm (had a working windows box not too long ago earlier today, the SB-XFi driver is listed atm)..the ubuntu FAQ didn't have much of anything useful on configuring it there are 3 options I've played with the controls for all 3 HDA Intel HDA HDMI and Realtek .. still no sound from Net video or a vlc DVD11:14
theadminElias_:...Most likely codecs. Type this into terminal: "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras"11:14
candykorntheadmin: so how can i get ubuntu to display the weather for my area and maybe the moon cycles?11:16
theadminI mean, DVD and net videos most likely have an MP3 sound, and mp3 codecs are in restricted group.11:16
Elias_TY *theadmin* I am downloading now and will let you guys know what's up with it once I reboot and mess around :)11:16
erUSULElias_: SD X-Fi has no driver in jaunty afaik11:16
GRUBV1Big Problem. I have a root partition, a boot one (500 mb) and a ntfs (winxp). the thing is, i can't get to grub. If i boot from the hdd, i get DISK BOOT FAILURE. the boot partition has grub installed, all entries good and is flagged bootable11:16
aXaXintheadmin: thanks... :) i'll be back :)11:16
Madpilotcandykorn, for weather, use the gweather applets. Right click your panel, choose Add To Panel, look for weather11:17
Madpilotthen right-click on the new applet to pick your city and configure it11:17
icerooterUSUL: Elias_ correct, no drivers for jaunty(not 32bit, only 64bit) but for karmic11:17
erUSULGRUBV1: reinstall grub from a livecd ?11:17
GRUBV1i tried that11:17
candykornwhat about the moon cycle?11:17
GRUBV1erUSUL: i tried that. nothing11:17
Elias_erUSUL: strangely, when I go into system/device manager (something I installed from the add programs thingy) under pci bridge it says audio controller, SB X-Fi11:18
theadminElias_: Activate that.11:18
El-Duderinocan ubuntu support 1920*1080 res on an ATI onboard card?11:18
Madpilotcandykorn, search synaptic for 'moon' there is a moon-phases applet11:18
erUSULElias_: well linux can see the chip in the pci bus and can ask its name but that does not mean it has a driver for it11:18
erUSULEl-Duderino: i do not see why not11:19
Madpilotcandykorn, ah, it's Gnome Lunar Clock. Install it thru synaptic, then it'll show in the Add To Panel menu11:19
Elias_oh damn, ok, so what can I do about this? I don't mind reading and being lead somewhere to solve my own problem, btw11:19

PerryArmstrongi have downloaded the eclipse IDE for java EE developers.....i have installed the sun-java6-jre..will that be enough11:23
erUSULsaulus: sorry brainfart... i was confsed. the problem is that you can not here it ?11:23
erUSULPerryArmstrong: well for eclipse you need the jdk ; don't you ?11:23
sauluserUSUL: It doesnt change: I cant hear the bell11:24
PerryArmstrongerUSUL; so sun-java7-jdk??11:24
ArabusPerryArmstrong: Indeed, you should install the jdk as it also includes the documentation for java11:24
icerootPerryArmstrong: there is not java711:24
erUSULPerryArmstrong: yep; karmic support in #ubuntu+111:24
pozicWith ntp I get: "no servers can be used, exiting". I configured at least 6 servers. Is it possible that a proxy is blocking it?11:25
erUSULiceroot: maybe in karmic ??11:25
erUSULpozic: or the connection is to unreliable to any of them11:25
icerooterUSUL: of course not11:25
PerryArmstrongerUSUL; why Karmic support?11:25
icerooterUSUL: http://java.sun.com/11:25
PerryArmstrongiceroot; ther wasn't any java711:25
Arabuspozic: you can test the servers with the tool ntpdc11:25
erUSULiceroot: ok; i stand corrected11:25
PerryArmstrongArabus; should the classpath be always set as in windows11:26
pozicArabus: how? I have the tool.11:26
zhoujingruiis there some free SSH id?11:26
icerootPerryArmstrong: sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk11:26
viki26Hello , does it possible to use "grep" command in order to search string inside files recursive ? (to search in all folders & files ) ?11:26
erUSULviki26: grep -R11:26
aneesh1PerryArmstrong: Yes you have to set the java path11:26
erUSULviki26: grep -R string folder/11:26
erUSULPerryArmstrong: also you have to configure the system to use sun's java and no the default gcj iirc11:27
Arabuspozic: try ntpdc <servername> you should then get the ntpdc promp there you can type peers for example, if it works, your connection to that server is ok11:27

erUSULPerryArmstrong: sudo update-alternatives --config java11:27
candykornno real luck in finding the weather applet11:27
erUSULcandykorn: please; language11:28
ArabusPerryArmstrong: normally upon installation the classpath should be set automagically by apt if not you can set it with export CLASSPATH=$CLAPPSPATH;<your/path/here/>11:28
PerryArmstrongso then sudo update-alternatives --config java will resolve of the gcj from interfering....11:28
erUSULPerryArmstrong: yep11:28
PerryArmstrongArabus; whats this your/path/here....11:29
cleptoso when 9.10 comes out how will i update my 9.04 install to it?11:29
ArabusPerryArmstrong: the path to the jdk11:29
cleptoshould i reinstall?11:29
jribclepto: update manager will ask you if you want to upgrade11:29
cleptoah ok11:29
PerryArmstrongArabus; ohhh where will it be installed....okk before i do that i'll check if the classpath is automatically set or not??11:29
ArabusPerryArmstrong: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classpath_(Java)11:30
jribclepto: ask #ubuntu+1 for more details though, because I don't think you'll get grub2 that way11:30
ArabusPerryArmstrong: sorry, got confused11:30
cleptoyeah... i did the default install of ubuntu so it did a single partition i think plus i have vista installed on this machine11:31
PerryArmstrongArabus; i know what the classpath is....but in windows we usually set it to bin and libs folder...in linux i usually find it confusing with the filesystem11:31
Elias_maybe too generic a question, but after a Ubuntu install and then a later Xubuntu install (think the Ubuntu install was corrupted), my NTFS WinXP64 partitiion won't load shows Disk Read Error but the directory structure is all solid there. Xubuntu also wasn't loading but finally got it to work after a few hours .. already tried FDISK and the partition manager from the boot cd for Ubuntu showed the right values for C:\'s size .. do I need to t11:31
Elias_ransfer the data from both partitions to another drive and reformat/repartition or do I have other options? I'm here after OS reinstall #511:31
Rods_TigerI'm having trouble with e-zipupdate - I find the documentation incomprehensible, and it's not working properly. It seems to be telling the world that my domain name links to 192.168.etc.etc11:32
ArabusPerryArmstrong: well if you store your programs in \home\username\workspace for example you should add that path to the classpath11:32
ArabusPerryArmstrong: eclipse will set that normally when you choose a workspace though11:32

Arabuspsypher12: normall the /tmp directory is cleaned upon shutdown - if not you can examine if a file in the /tmp is still in use by typing "lsof | grep /tmp" If you want to, you can the go about and delete the files NOT listed by that output. be careful though, since you could ruin the temporary files of running processes that did not lock their temporary files11:47

ActionParsnipubuntunewbie: do you mean the fonts of the text under the icons?12:15
PiciExElNeT : Please join #ubuntu+1 for Karmic/9.10 support/discussion.12:15
PsineticActionParsnip, that isn't continuous :( I want a non-stop feed that i can leave on my desktop to show what's connected at all times12:16
ActionParsnipPsinetic: put it in an infinite bas script then, or maybe netstat has an option12:16
ubuntunewbieActionParsnip : yeh all are sqare block and an error message but I can't even understand the error message since it's sqare block12:16
PiciPsinetic: use the +c argument to netstat then12:16
tc1111Pici: thank you... i'll head over there12:16
Psinetic+c? so....netstat -a +c12:16
ActionParsnipubuntunewbie: you should have saidthat then, your description was VERY vague12:17
PiciPsinetic: netstat -ac12:17
ActionParsnipubuntunewbie: at one point i figured your desktop was a big block of text12:17
zetheroogadz ... any Windoz user who whines about using the terminal in Linux had better just get lost ... :-/ ... I just spent 4 hours haggling with an XP machine having to do about 80% of the haggling in command prompt ... utter agony ...12:17
PiciPsinetic: netstat -act probaby is better.12:17
ActionParsnipubuntunewbie: try installing some fonts12:17
ActionParsnip!fonts | ubuntunewbie12:17
fbianconiubuntunewbie: is console working? perhaps a fonts issue12:17
ubottuubuntunewbie: Font installation basics here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FontInstallHowto - No fonts in Flash? Install "msttcorefonts" (from !Multiverse), "gsfonts", and "gsfonts-x11". No fonts in MPlayer? see !MPlayer12:17
Psineticpici, ActionParsnip, thank you :)12:18
ubuntunewbieActionParsnip :I can't even read those character how to install fonts>12:18
ActionParsnipubuntunewbie: you may also want to check display settings so you use a font that exists12:18
dafdui have STA broadcom wireless card driver instaled and i wana change it with B43 ?????12:18
ubuntunewbieActionParsnip> now I am at terminal by pressing ctrl+alt+f112:18
Picidafdu: Why do you want to change it?12:18
dafducuz STA cant go at monitor mode12:19
WLUerUSUL: Thanks for the info, the vga option worked12:19
slowbuntuwhats up peps12:19
ubuntunewbiefbianconi : I can't click anything at GUI , it just show an error icon but all character are in sware and the taskbar cann'y be click12:19
dafdui have STA broadcom wireless card driver instaled and i wana change it with B43 ?????12:20
slowbuntudo any one know how to use the recovery console that is on an xp cd12:20
icerootslowbuntu: ##windows12:20
ActionParsnipubuntunewbie: then read the guides, they will give you some font packages you can install12:21
ActionParsnipdafdu: installl the b43 and blacklist the other driver12:21
Picidafdu: I suppose you might be able to add a line to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf that says "blacklist sta" (or whatever the name of the sta module is), if that works then you're set. If you still need to type 'modprobe b43' before your wireless starts working then add module name to /etc/modules12:21
dafduhow can i know the name of the other drivr12:22
ActionParsnipdafdu: b43 IS a driver, you named it yourself12:23
rblsti've done an update in my jaunty, and now there are network problems: my wifi connection is not shown, and if i plug in a wire, nothing happens, i need to manually get an ip in terminal12:23

RobLikesBrunchI'm having problems with getting flash to play audio in x64 9.04.  The PulseAudio Applet says that flash isn't even sending an audio signal. Anyone have ideas?12:29
ActionParsnipubuntunewbie: try: sudo apt-get install gsfonts gsfonts-x11 msttcorefonts12:29
ActionParsnipMagmaRules: define calibrate12:29
eggy_ActionParsnip: the problem is firefox, chrome and songbird so far12:29
ubuntunewbieActionParsnip so do you know how to reset to default font in terminal ?12:29
MagmaRulesActionParsnip: in terms of color12:31
aafuenteswhats the lighter ftp server u know? i just want simple share a couple of files and user autentification if you want to change those files or upload something12:31
MagmaRulesActionParsnip: contrast and stuff12:31
ActionParsnipubuntunewbie: all i can suggest is install those, or rename all ~/.g* folders to default ALL gnome settings to defaults12:31
icerootaafuentes: you are using ssh on the server?12:31
RobLikesBrunchI'm having problems with getting flash to play audio in x64 9.04.  The PulseAudio Applet says that flash isn't even sending an audio signal. Anyone have ideas?12:31
ActionParsnipeggy_: ok do you get any output in terminal?12:31
ActionParsnipMagmaRules: hmm, not on your OSD of your monitor?12:32
ubuntunewbieActionParsnip : could not find gsfonts-xll12:32
ActionParsnipMagmaRules: i know nvidia has a nice config for it12:32
eggy_ActionParsnip: yes, it was in this paste: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/147034/12:32
MagmaRulesActionParsnip: nop i cant callibrate in my screen =/12:32
ActionParsnipubuntunewbie: its x11 not x||12:32
eggy_ActionParsnip: at least, it should be, I can't view the paste myself, I uploaded it using a script12:32
ubuntunewbieActionParsnip : I can't even right click the folder , somehow I can only move my mouse but I can't click on anything12:32
eggy_ActionParsnip: unfornately I don't have debugging symbols, but I did try installing firefox-3.5-dbg and firefox-3.1-dbg12:33

eggy_ActionParsnip: jaunty12:34
conb123Hiya winex is unable to find a library file libfreetype.o does anybody know which packages contains this file i already have libfreetype installed12:34

RobLikesBrunchCan anyone help me uninstall Adobe Flash?12:35
uczenDZIEN DOBRY:)12:35
ActionParsnipRobLikesBrunch: sudo apt-get --purge remove flash* adobe*12:35
eggy_ActionParsnip: yeah, but it's really hard to tell whether it's really libpthread being the culprit, it could really be anything. Threads seem to work correctly in other programs12:35
jpdsuczen: Ohai.12:35
RobLikesBrunchActionParsnip I used a x64 workout...will it still work?12:36
ubuntunewbieActionParsnip : still don't work, all still in square12:36
jpds!pl | uczen12:36
ubottuuczen: Na tym kanale używamy tylko języka angielskiego. Możesz uzyskać pomoc w języku polskim na #ubuntu-pl.12:36
eggy_ActionParsnip: so we can assume libpthread is the culprit, what should I do? Reinstall?12:36
ActionParsnipRobLikesBrunch: if you use the 64bit flash, simply delete the.so file you copied12:36
ActionParsnipeggy_: not sure, have you tried renamingg ~/.mozilla12:36
eggy_ActionParsnip: no12:36
ActionParsnipuczen: do you have a support question?12:36
WazzzaaaI had my /boot on /dev/sda1. When installing a new version I forgot to "say" install grub on sda1. I did an update-grub and something else. But sda1 contains the old grub. How do I install a new grub on sda1 ?12:36

RobLikesBrunchActionParsnip I followed this guide: http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/install-flash-10-ubuntu-linux-64bit.html#comment-15088812:37
RobLikesBrunchActionParsnip To install flash...I just copied the script and ran it...but sound doesn't work, so I'm going to try and uninstall it and reinstall it in a different manner.12:38
eggy_ActionParsnip: firefox now seems to be blocking for half a minute and doing nothing. Conkeror says this: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/147038/12:38
aafuentesiceroot, no need for ssh in the server, id rather not to create system account in my comp for the ftp... just some simple ftp atentification via password (i dont care if the pass is seen)12:38
ActionParsnipRobLikesBrunch: ok then you need to uninstall nspluginwrapper and rm /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so12:39
RobLikesBrunchActionParsnip using sudo apt-get --purge remove?12:39
ActionParsnipRobLikesBrunch: all those links that were made need deleting12:39
ActionParsnipRobLikesBrunch: no, some need mnually deleting as you manually made them with that wacky guide12:39
RobLikesBrunchActionParsnip I have no idea how to delete any of it...12:40
ActionParsnipeggy_: if its being ran with no profile, its making a fresh one12:40
RobLikesBrunchActionParsnip Should I simply navigate to the folders listed in the script and delete their contents?12:40
eggy_ActionParsnip: yes I know, but it's still blocking12:40
ActionParsnipRobLikesBrunch: sudo rm <thing>   if you read the guide you will see what needs deleteing as you used the last 10 lines or so to add a tonne of symlinks12:40
eggy_ActionParsnip: shouldn't take /that/ long12:41
ActionParsnipRobLikesBrunch: pretty much, this is a massively overly complex mess of a guide12:41
ActionParsnipeggy_: well, firefox is garbage12:41
eggy_ActionParsnip: I agree, but all programs using xulrunner seem to be failing12:41
ActionParsnipeggy_: could try killing it off and rerunning it12:41
eggy_And chrome doesn't work, songbird doesn't work. THis is getting on my nervers12:41
ActionParsnipeggy_: then uninstall xulrunner12:42
RobLikesBrunchOkay, just to get this straight. First uninstall nspluginwrapper, then sudo rm all of the file locations listed in the script?12:42
eggy_ActionParsnip: zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped)  firefox :)12:42

RobLikesBrunchActionParsnip That'd be great.12:43
eggy_ActionParsnip: if I want to uninstall it all dependencies will be gone :(12:43
ActionParsnipeggy_: why not try: sudo apt-get --purge remove firefox* xulrunner*; sudo apt-get --purge autoremove; sudo apt-get install firefox-3.512:43
eggy_ActionParsnip: ok12:44
RobLikesBrunchActionParsnip Is there anyway I can just delete all of it at once...even if I have to delete FireFox?12:44

eggy_Ali_: could adjust your hard or soft limits12:45
ActionParsnipRobLikesBrunch: i wouldnt do them all at once, i'd keep tabs on whats going on12:45
eggy_Ali_: or, you could not use crappy pulseaudio. It manages to not produce any sound at all for me. Just use alsa12:45

ActionParsnipRobLikesBrunch: you will also have to remove any flash packages you have installed as they will cause issues12:46
Ali_but i thought pulseaudio is the proper way of doing things12:46
eggy_Unfortunately, they were so retarded as to decide that gnome depends on pulseaudio12:46
monousermickster04: Wow!12:46
