leaf-sheep!pinning | fokuslee00:01
ubottufokuslee: pinning is an advanced feature that APT can use to prefer particular packages over others. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PinningHowto00:01
Snausageslaura_: that may explain it... most systems boot at a low enough resolution to mirror the video over to a tv out.  When x gets going it's typically at a higher resolution which won't work on the tv.  the tv out can generally still be enabled, but something in the driver has to tell the chipset how to handle the reduced resolution on the TV out side of it, and I'm guessing that is what is not happening for you.00:01
caseyweedermanOk, can anyone tell me about wvdial?00:01
leaf-sheepchrisr: Don't type glipper.  Try clipboard.00:01
penguin42chrisr: Hmm not sure, there are a whole bunch of things in the compiz (desktop effects) system - if you install thecompizconfig-settings-manager package you can fiddle with hundreds of them00:01

leaf-sheep!notes | Newbie3300:04
ubottuNewbie33: Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) release notes can be found here: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/91000:04
Snausageslaura_: yes, the computer can make a hi-res signal, and yes your TV can certainly display a hi-res signal...  but that s-video connection in between is going to top out around 720x486...  quite low by comparison to either.  As far as what to do next, you may need to find a more complete or more advanced graphics driver for your chipset.  I don't know if such a thing exists or even where to look.00:04
coz_WACOMalt,   pastebin the   /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf let me take alook at it00:04
chrisrleaf-sheep: yeah that sorted it00:04

Snausageslaura_: you may need to find and install an alternate driver for your graphics system.  I don't know if there is one.  Another possibility- some laptops have a hotkey on them which will cause the graphics chipset to seek out external displays or force them to switch.  Dunno if this applies to you.00:07

JorgeBorgusr13, will do. I'm trying to connect from windows to ubuntu00:38
Rods_TigerI've got it - it used to work00:38
Billiardinfidel2s: right click and uncheck lock00:38

dajhornspellbound: How many system upgrades has this computer gone through?  Is there any chance that it needs an LVM metadata update?00:41
digitalstimulusJorgeBorg, is it running Gnome?00:41

dajhornspellbound: Yes, I'm poking around the man pages, but I can't remember how to check the version or do the upgrade.  I dunno whether Hardy is old enough that this could be the glitch.00:45
waseidelit can be here?00:45
=== Wasaki is now known as KnoxX
jribchrisr: why?00:45
digitalstimulusJorgeBorg, no problem.  the server is pretty simple setup wise, it's the client that dictates the speed.  so you can connect to the same server from a lan or dial up modem or wherever and pick your settings to suit00:45
Billiardhedkandi: i know of commands to set the brightness, but i think its in the power settings as well00:46
digitalstimulushedkandi, does your laptop have a key/combo on the keyboard to do it?00:46
chrisris there a way to do this safe, so everything works properly?00:46
Rods_Tigerno, it doesn't look like I can ping this machine from the ubuntu machine either (using the ip address)00:46

hedkandidigitalstimulus, yes it does, and they operate ok00:46

BilliardRods_Tiger: ok, you are sure they are in the same subnet?00:46

hedkandiBilliard, so what commands do the job then?00:47
BilliardRods_Tiger: do they both have internet access00:47
dajhornspellbound: Okay, np.  The magic command could be vgconvert, but you could hose the data.00:47
jribchrisr: use usermod00:47
digitalstimulushedkandi, i don't believe i've seen a 'brightness' control in gnome.  if you have an nvidia or ati chip, i believe their respective control panels can set that00:47
hedkandiI don't actually.00:48
Ashfire908durt, already did that.00:48
chrisrjrib: I've read how using usermod stopped someones machine from booting until he changed back the uid to 100000:48
hedkandiBilliard is right, you can set the screen brightness under AC power in power management00:48
hedkandibut you can't do the same on battery power00:48
jribchrisr: I hope you see that makes no sense...00:48
hedkandiwhich is a bizarre inconsistency00:48
digitalstimulushedkandi, hmm, there should be settings for AC and battery00:48

anthony_best out there00:51
BilliardRods_Tiger: can any device ping any other device?00:51

Rods_TigerI don't think so00:51

Rods_TigerI've never ever experienced ping working. ssh has always worked fine but now it doesn't00:53
Billiardhedkandi: to set the screen brightness time, you can use gconf-editor00:53
digitalstimulushedkandi, ok under power management, do you have a tab that says "ON AC Power" and "On Battery Power"00:53

caseyweedermanI just want my computer to forget there was a device, and then find it afresh.00:56
hedkandithere is a section for "applications" which takes just about anything00:56
penguin42manevra: i386 is 32bit, amd64 is 64bit00:56
Billiardhedkandi: they just put their settings in .gnome i believe, because they are ment for use with gnome00:56
digitalstimulushedkandi, gconf has gnome settings.  but it's different from the registry in windows.  the registry in windows not only has windows settings but applications and hardware and everything else00:57
hedkandiindeed ok then00:57

durtmanevra, if you are new to ubuntu stick with 32bit till you have a reason to try 64bit00:58

manevrapenguin42 unfortunately i have 1 GB of ram. this means i386 is the best option for me right ?01:03
penguin42manevra: Either should work, I'd say stick with the 32bit01:03
durtunperson, unfortunately I don't use nm so I wouldn't be aware of any changes.01:03
chrisrjirb: ok ill try that now, if im not back in 3 minutes something has gone seriously wrong01:03
digitalstimulusanthony_, 64 bit addressing causes applications and code to use up more memory.  nothing wrong with being on 64 bit with 512 mb or RAM01:03
manevrathanks a lot01:03
Billiardchrisr: why do you want to change your user id anyway?01:04
digitalstimulusanthony_, there is just a limitation on how big the numbers can be and it's around 4 GB01:04
voodoomonkcan any one help me fix flash control problems with 9.10?01:04
oscurochumanevra: 64-bit is for users with more than 1GB of ram and a 64bit processor, of course, i believe01:04
durtunperson, my understanding is one or the other01:04
unpersondurt, so in principle if I removed those lines from /etc/network/interfaces I could reconfigure my connection through nm and things ought to work right.01:04
digitalstimulusmy rule of thumb is always go 64 bit unless your processor can't handle it01:04
durtunperson, that is my understanding01:04
unpersondurt, I see.  I would have assumed one is basically a front end to the other before this issue cropped up.01:04
=== august_ is now known as Guest19192
penguin42digitalstimulus: I run 64bit, given things like flash can be more tricky I tend not to recommend it for people unless it's likely to give a benefit through lots of ram, sure they might still win out01:05
digitalstimuluscaseyweederman, how old is the computer?01:05
durtunperson, I believe nm uses other means to store it's info.01:05
unpersondurt, But does that mean that the network won't start until Gnome does?01:05
unpersondurt, right01:05
caseyweedermandigitalstimulus: It's a good ten years old.01:05
anthony_So by running a 64Bit operating system my apps use more memory then if I was on 32 Bit?01:05
durtunperson, with nm, yes01:05
penguin42anthony_: Often01:05
Billiardanthony_: somewhat yes01:05
digitalstimuluscaseyweederman, more than likely it's a USB 1.1 then, it's a low power interface compared to USB 2.001:05
digitalstimulussome devices require "high speed usb 2.0"01:06
digitalstimuluscaseyweederman, and can drop out if on usb 1.101:06
voodoomonkcan any one help me fix flash control problems with 9.10?01:06
anthony_I had heard that 64Bit let apps run smoother and. I didn't think that it would need more ram to do it :\01:06
unpersondurt, I wonder what happens if you select recovery mode and choose to boot to a root prompt with network01:06
unpersondurt, I guess it probably just tries DHCP01:06
digitalstimuluscaseyweederman, you can purchase a PCI card that is USB 2.0 to supply the proper power if that is the problem01:06
penguin42anthony_: With a 64bit app any pointer is now 64bit rather than 32, if the app uses a lot of pointers then it will have to use more space01:06
Billiardanthony_: some things can be faster with 64bit such as encoding video01:07

nitro_has anyone else noticed that though ubuntu 9.10 is the late, great ver., it has a LOT of bugs that 9.04 didn't?  Or is it just me?01:07
oscurochuanthony_: you wouldnt benefit from a 64bit PC with less than 1GB of ram. i've talked to a lot of gentoo users, and they all say the same thing about it01:07
caseyweedermanOk, thanks. I'm not sure that's it, though.01:07
syn-acknitro_, A new version is usually going to have bugs that the prior release didnt01:08
baltadthow do I copy files in terminal01:08
unpersondurt, I see.01:08
digitalstimuluscaseyweederman, me neither, but i would check the requirements of your device.  if it says USB 2.0, you probably don't have that01:08
Billiardbaltadt: cp01:08
=== Chazz is now known as daBomb|Not-Here
durtnitro_, there are a few regressions, see the release notes for known issues01:08
Blank__oscurochu, isn't the main benefit of 64bit the ability to page larger memory?01:08
p1und3ranyone else getting this "One or more of the mount listed in /etc/fstab could not yet be mounted" thing, and then it just boots in as normal?01:08
anthony_So then I should be good with my 2gigs and 64Bit right?01:08
=== daBomb|Not-Here is now known as Chazz
baltadtok when I try that it says "cp: omitting directory `/home/jason/Desktop/cck'"01:08
unpersondurt, I trust that with nm the network still comes up regardless of which user is logged in (i.e., the settings are not per-user).01:08
Billiardp1und3r: pastebin your /etc/fstab01:08
digitalstimuluscaseyweederman, the only other thing i can think of is poor support from the manufacturer01:08
Blank__(and to deal with larger calculations)01:08
penguin42baltadt: cp -r   for recursive for directories01:08
krevitzits not there01:09
nitro_syn-ack: do you think the ubuntu team is actively working to fix a lot of these?  I know it's free and all so it's kinda unkosher to be asking people to do more free work, but I was just wondering if they're working on them.  Do you know?01:09
durtunperson, I believe you need to be sudo (root) to set the network in nm01:09
caseyweedermandigitalstimulus: It just says 'usb'. Hm. It's doing some different things here, on my laptop.01:09
unpersondurt, Okay, that would make sense.01:09
krevitzBilliard: is not in there01:09
anthony_It seems that my 32Bit Vista uses way more memory then 64Bit Ubuntu. But then that's Windows for you :P01:09
digitalstimuluscaseyweederman, does it have an external power source?01:09
unpersondurt, Thanks for your help.01:09
syn-acknitro_, I do know and there are sometimes reasons why bugs wernt fixed as the fix would cause a regression on the whole01:10
digitalstimuluscaseyweederman, like batteries or wall plug01:10
durtunperson, again my nm experience is limited01:10
oscurochuBlank_: you're asking the wrong person. My desktop has a 64bit processor but when I was trying gentoo, all of the gentoo users were telling me I should use the x86 version since I had less than 1GB of ram (it may be 2GB or 4GB, but im pretty sure they said 1GB)01:10

caseyweedermandigitalstimulus: network manager still isn't reading it. No, it's just a 'thumbdrive' unit.01:10
mikerupenguin42: I generated a new mode using gtf with 1280 720 60 -f, then pastedit in /etc/fb.modes. I then used sudo fbset "1280x720-60" (what i named the mode) and it didn't change. I ran fbset again and it told me it was still on 1024x768-7601:10
Darkedgeuh OK01:10
baltadtok 1 more stupid question, how do you respond to someone directly like you did penguin4201:10
DarkedgeLets put it like this01:10
Billiardp1und3r: do you still have your same swap partition?01:11
krevitzcan someone please help me01:11
p1und3rBilliard: i didn't alter anything01:11
penguin42mikeru: Hmm not sure01:11
digitalstimuluscaseyweederman, more than likely it needs USB 2.0  there are special things you have to do to setup GSM connections, I ddon't have any experience in it though01:11
penguin42baltadt: I just typed there name with a : after - nothing clever!01:11
=== krisH is now known as Guest87633
DarkedgeThis is more APT related, But how can I list all config files for a certain package?01:11
durt!tab | baltadt01:11
ubottubaltadt: 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.01:11
baltadtpenguin42: ty for helping a noob01:11
Billiardp1und3r: run `free -om`01:11
digitalstimuluscaseyweederman, google and forum reading is probably your best chance at success01:11

digitalstimuluscaseyweederman, searching for your specific device01:12

bencoderwell that was very painless01:14
Darkedgeuh OK I'm trying to find the config files for FoF I tried "fretsonfire" on dpkg it says its not installed, how can I get the package name?01:14

durtfitus, do yourself a favor and get a nvidia also OT.01:15
weegidajhorn: i'm trying to cheat flash games by changing my keyboard prefrences, so when you hit "x" it clicks, and when you hold down "x" it clicks ALOT!01:15
Walt1yes. works fine when the test button is pressed and works well in cheese01:15
wersdigitalstimulus, yeah. that's the best i got. to export contacts to a file then import on evolution01:15
digitalstimuluswebcam support in linux is best done by purchasing stuff that already has a good support base from the community.  webcams are a dime a dozen and most don't have good linux support01:15
Hans_Henrikis it likely that the WLAN driver has impact on how much power is devoted to the WLAN card in linux?01:16
weegidajhorn: because everyone enjoys a good flash game01:16
fitusany nvidia card will work or a specific model ?01:16
witakrWhats the command line to get my video card info in terminal?01:16
dajhornweegi: Do you mean the keyboard repeat rate instead of "clicks"?01:16
DarkedgeHow can I find the name of a package, or what dpkg sees it as?01:16
unpersonOkay, so /etc/network/interfaces defines various interfaces that can be brought up, right?  But presumably there's a file elsewhere that tells the OS which interfaces to bring up at boot.  Can anyone point me to the right place?01:16
durtfitus, your going to be hard pressed to find an nvidia card that does not work with linux, again this is OT.01:17
weegidajhorn:  "left mouse button"01:17
penguin42unperson: If that file has the word 'auto' on the line for the interface it gets bought up at boot01:17
ChogyDanunperson: I thought that was the file01:17
Walt1I don't think the issue is the webcam, I think it is with skype 2.1 Beta running under Ubuntu 9.10. It worked on 9.0401:17

digitalstimulusWalt1, why not install it from a repository?  it may not be the lastest version sometimes, but usually the repository stuff works well01:19
weegidajhorn; and whichcraft01:19
unpersonDarkedge, Generally doing apt-cache search [search term] will give you a list of packages that have that in the description.  If you search on a command name this way, you'll generally find the package that contains it.01:19

linxehI've just installed 9.10. on 9.04 I was prompted to install drivers for my 9400m - this time I've not got the restricted drivers ? do I have to do anything to enable them ?01:33
unpersonChogyDan, So clearly you generally know more about this than me, but I think that part may not be accurate.  I realized that I have another machine running Karmic headless.  I think NM is handling interfaces (/etc/network/interfaces definitely isn't) and I can ssh in with the who command showing no one else logged in.01:33
usser_linxeh, make sure they show up gksudo jockey-gtk01:33
kpwhen i boot ubuntu from the first hard disk off the live cd i get error:out of disk01:33

unpersonChogyDan, Now, GDM is definitely running (I haven't bothered to disable it), but no one is logged in.01:33
unpersonChogyDan, What's more, it looks from the output of ps like NM started before GDM.01:34

EEMPHASISSHi, I've got 3 Ubuntu machines here at home.  Rather than downloading updates separately, can I use one of them to serve as a repository cache?  I.e., update the server first, then in the other 2 machines, set the server up as another repository?02:09
sebsebsebsireorion: I thought you might have disappeard on us02:09
NightskyMK13: oh sorry, I guess I was confused, maybe it defaulted to ad hoc mode, but I thought that the router was usually the master02:09

MK13Nightsky, the router is usually the master, but i don't have a wireless router yet which is why i need master mode on my wireless card so i can share my wired connection through it02:10

UBlondie_ULNX64_, no ...this is just while I'm using it ...I tend to use it a lot  ...watching movies or doing web development ...or photo/image stuff...02:44
pochijMyles: my best guess would be that you comment out the "blacklist ath_pci" and add "blacklist ath5k"02:44
ccfontesNightblaze: sudo rm -rf /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/sound probably this removed your hardware drivers for sound hehe.. so it did what was supposed to do02:44
CelrocThanks for all your help :-). Guess I'm going to log out for now. Bye all, have a good night02:44
_ULNX64_has the fan stopped spinning?02:44
jMylespochi: Yeah, I think that's accurate.  I'm not sure why ath_pci is listed or even what the difference is.  Either way, the issue seems to be exactly the same as widely reported, but un-blacklisting doesn't help.  Frankly, I don't really want to unblacklist as it is a friend's laptop who won't know to re-blacklist when ath5k gets worked out.02:44
UBlondie_ULNX64_,  does it?  ...there seems to be a rush of air coming out the vents at the back left ...02:44

CapeFeardurt so when i install ubuntu, i'll need to resize the windows partition, right (i want to create a dual boot)02:50

UBlondieTiders, it has info on enabling DVD support02:50
sebsebsebTDGW: either way though get  the data moved into Ubuntu, and then remove that partition02:50
CapeFeardurt and resize means just to change the disk space for windows from say 100 GB to 90 GB02:50

MrLoganWhen I remove a package/program via package manager - does the package manager completely clean up all the empty dir's, etc?03:44
mrbrdolstarnes: yes03:44

Danchothat is the other thing, we need free software03:45
lilyshun8tuser : i didn't see any sdb with fdisk.03:45
Danchois for the ubuntu community in ecuador03:45
Xpistossebsebseb: do you have ffmpeg installed>03:45
sebsebsebXpistos: don't think so03:45
durtOmen_20, the issue with automating installs is overwriting customized configurations without human intervention03:45
CapeFearDancho you are ecuadorian?03:45
n8tuserlilyshu -> on a command line.. try   sudo fdisk  -l03:45
lstarnesmrbrdo: are you sure that that application uses gtk 1.2?03:45
Danchoyes i am03:45
Danchoecuatorian :-)03:45
CapeFearoh ok! lol03:45
MrLoganWhen I remove a package/program via package manager - does the package manager completely clean up all the empty dir's, etc?03:45
mrbrdolstarnes: #include <gtk/gtk.h>03:46

XpistosI don't get it, I was sure I was able to watch avi files like last week or something late that03:46
lstarnesWACOMalt: uname -r03:46
MrLoganlstarnes, so I need to <sudo> purge <package name>?03:46
NightskyMrLogan: you have to select the "purge" option03:46
lstarnesMrLogan: sudo aptitude purge packagename03:46
CapeFearsi, esta el Name de el :P03:46
lstarnesMrLogan: or sudo apt-get remove --purge packagename03:46
durtOmen_20, you can be asked to either replace, not replace, or combine existing conf files with conf files from the new package03:46
MrLoganNightsky, lstarnes thanks guys.03:47
sebsebsebXpistos: not sure if I ran restricted extras command for this install, but  should be able to play AVI after running that03:47
Danchon8tuser you have right but in our case, ther isn't other option03:47
CapeFearbut i'll let you get help from these guys :)03:47
lilyshun8tuser : ok the system for usb key is "Hidden HPFS/NTFS"03:47

greezmunkey!:) Intellegent03:49

mrbrdolstarnes: do you have any idea what else i can try? do you have /usr/lib in $PATH?03:49
n8tuserlilyshu -> so what do you want to do with it?  man fdisk to find out what it can do03:49
lstarnesmrbrdo: it should not be in $PATH03:49
mrbrdolstarnes: it's not, i'm just asking03:50
greezmunkeythat's even better...03:50
lstarnesmrbrdo: $PATH is for executables only03:50
mrbrdolstarnes: did you use the same command line to compile as i did?03:50
Xpistossebsebseb: Thanks I got that. Besides I want to install fresh from the 9.10 release and not the beta and update. I want to see the nice pictures on the install03:50
n8tusermrbrdo -> perhaps look at your $LIBPATH too03:50
mrbrdoit's empty03:50
lstarnesmrbrdo: I was using a different file just checking -lm03:50

kuttanshii anyone tried to install oracle 10g r2 in karmic + how to work around the relink errors03:51
sebsebsebXpistos: http://releases.ubuntu.com/9.10  you can find the code it needs to be in one of those fiels03:51
Rondomaybe a dumb question, but I've made kind of a half-assed effort to revert to pure ubuntustudio from a clean ubuntu 9.10 install and, though jack and rt are doing great, my media-center is replaced by gnome-app-install. any advice on how to switch these back without borking my system that I'm otherwise very pleased with? maybe some kind of OS-save-state app?03:51
mrbrdon8tuser how can i set it? set LIBPATH = /usr/lib doesn't work03:51

porter1Aruna, ask away!03:57
mrbrdon8tuser: u can see the full command i did in the pastie i linked03:57

WACOMaltXcell:  how do I get to that?03:57
TonyTheTigerwhen i connect my monitor via vga to my laptop, ubuntu freezes. Anyway i can fix this?03:57
mrbrdon8tuser: none, i put it as a -L param03:57
lstarnesmrbrdo: repalce the $1 and $1.c with the name of the output file and the .c file03:57
mrbrdon8tuser: -L/usr/lib/libm.a03:57
Xcellgo to (main) menue and click it in tools03:57
lstarnesmrbrdo: that command worked for me03:57
mrbrdolstarnes: i run it as a bash script03:57
Arunai have just installed when i go to software center.. most of the application it says not available.03:57
mrbrdolstarnes: with $1 being a param.. that's not the problem03:57
iarpi unfortuntly need Internet Explorer to access a website, just wondering whats needed to get IE on ubuntu or even get the IE Tab addon for FF working03:57
ziesemeriarp, well the IE tab addon for FF requires IE.  :-(03:58
kuttansaruna : use synaptic instead03:58
ArunaI am new to Ubuntu03:58
lstarnes!ies4linux | iarp03:58
ubottuiarp: ies4linux is a script that quickly and effortlessly helps you install 3 versions of IE in Wine. Information can be found at http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Main_Page including instructions specifically for Ubuntu. ies4linux is aimed at web designers and ie-only sites, so please, don’t use any of the IEs to navigate! Use Firefox!03:58
kuttansaruna : and check out that the page is there really, by using any browser03:58
WACOMaltXcell: is that something I have to install? it's not in my menu03:58
iarplstarnes: ty03:58
kuttansaruna : what software you want to load03:58
n8tusermrbrdo -> whats on -L is prepended to list of dir to be searched, so you may want to put it at the end, as this path may have similar lib that is not what you seek03:58
kuttansanyone a dba over here03:59
XcellWACOMalt-  once you open it  go to apps/gnome-settings.. dont click anything if ur not sure03:59
MrLoganAruna, welcome to Ubuntu.03:59

MrLoganAruna, you're having problems with your package manager?03:59
kuttansor can anyone tell me how to compile a gcc with -m32 options03:59
n8tusermrbrdo -> basically -L says look here before the other path03:59
lstarnesmrbrdo: you do have build-essential installed, right?03:59
mrbrdolstarnes: yep04:00
sebsebsebXpistos: I am leaving here soon04:00
lstarnesmrbrdo: in which version of ubuntu?04:00
xmntWhat's a good mp3 player that works w/ linux ... thinking about a sansa .. anyone have any tips04:00
kuttansi read in one of the forum tha  the user renamed the /usr/bin/gcc to gcc.sav and created a new gcc with /usr/bin/gcc -m32 $.*04:00
n8tusermrbrdo -> i believed you can only have one -L   but am not 100% sure of that04:00
mrbrdolstarnes: i think 9.04, what's that file to look in again?04:00
WACOMaltXcell: Still not seeing this. I am on 9.10.04:00
sebsebsebxmnt: Cowon stuff, they also have support for the open  OGG Vorbis and Flac formats :)04:00
mrbrdolstarnes: okay i found it, it's 9.04 yeah04:00
kuttansand i m totally clueless about what he was saying can anyone decrypt that for me pls04:00
MrLoganxmnt, the only one I can think of that you can't get to work with Linux is the Zune series.04:00
wubiogenquestion: firefox got updated. I was told to restart it. It wont die. What is the command? Ubuntu 9.04 on a desktop PC in wubi04:01
lstarnesmrbrdo: I'm using 8.0404:01
mrbrdon8tuser: well i already have -L/usr/lib, so where's the problem then04:01
lstarnesmrbrdo: which version of gcc do you have>04:01
MrLoganxmnt, I'd recommend anything down the Sansa line. iPods work well with Ubuntu too.04:01
xmnthad an ipod before it worked well until i stepped on it04:01
Xcellits there.. system / preferances / main menu /ststem tools04:01
lstarnesmrbrdo: if you don't know, use gcc --version04:01
mrbrdolstarnes: 4.3.304:01
MrLoganxmnt, Mine exploded. =(04:01
XpistosMrLogan: You could always vm xp with usb support04:01
n8tusermrbrdo -> i cant remember all the options of gcc, you may just have to tackle the man pages of gcc04:01

MrLoganXpistos, I VM'ed Vista, because that's what I had, and... well... I'm not doing that.04:02
XpistosMrLogan: i don't blame you04:02
kuttansi read in one of the forum tha  the user renamed the /usr/bin/gcc to gcc.sav and created a new gcc with /usr/bin/gcc -m32 $.* can anyone tell me what exactly is the meaning of it and how it can be done04:02
usr13Bamboo: You mean for hardening your servers?04:02
* wubiogen cant get media working either. used the minidell 9.10 media page to do it04:03
mrbrdolstarnes, n8tuser: actually, if i delete -lm, then it nags the same error for the next lib (-lX11), if i delete that, it nags for the next etc..?04:03
n8tuserkuttans are you compiling ?04:03
mrbrdoso it seems it doesn't find any lib :S04:03
wubiogenHey, I asked BEFORE bamboo asked.04:03
Bamboo<usr13> any good IRC channels which discuss on all security issues04:03
wubiogenquestion: firefox got updated. I was told to restart it. It wont die. What is the command? Ubuntu 9.04 on a desktop PC in wubi04:03
Xcellpkill firefox04:03
lstarnesmrbrdo: try taking out everything after and including the -rdynamic04:03
MrLoganwubiogen, pkill firefox04:03
usr13Bamboo: Not sure, but you could try #debian04:03
kuttansi dont know, im having already gcc the newest version, but with that im getting relink error whie installing oracle04:03
sebsebsebwubiogen: By the way for proper long term installs real partitions are better.04:03
TonyTheTigerI cant vga output with my laptop, everything goes black and ubuntu freezes.04:04
Bamboo<usr13> thanks, let me try that..04:04
TonyTheTigeranyone know a fix?04:04
sebsebsebwubiogen: Wubi installs can also be converted some how into proper partitions.04:04
mrbrdolstarnes: where should i put -rdynamic? gcc doesn't recongise it04:04
usr13Bamboo: I don't think there are any04:04
Nightblazeok, I've been working on trying to get my speakers to work, and with the help of ccfontes have been able to get the hardware listed in the Sound Preferences again. However the mic and speakers still don't work, and everything is unmuted. I'm using this guide: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=7627817&postcount=9804:04
wubiogenterrific! thanks a lot. and now for YOUTUBE IS BLACK. What to do?04:04
lstarnesmrbrdo: the command that you gave me nad a -rdynamic in it04:04
mrbrdooh sry04:05
robin0800wubiogen: install flash plugin04:05
kuttansn8tuser: i dont know, im having already gcc the newest version, but with that im getting relink error whie installing oracle04:05
n8tusermrbrdo -> -l is for the library itself, not a path or a dir04:05
wubiogen(me has been lucky. Wireless, printer, speakers all work seamlessly on this older Dell desktop)04:05
mrbrdolstarnes: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgdk04:05
MrLoganrobin0800, if he didn't have flash wouldn't he be seeing a link to get flash instead of a black screen/04:05
mrbrdon8tuser: yeah..?04:06
lstarnesmrbrdo: well that's not making any sense...04:06
MrLoganwubiogen, Ubuntu is a solid platform for most software. It works with my Alps Nav pad and everything.04:06
mrbrdolstarnes: no, it's not :S04:06
lstarnesmrbrdo: try installing gcc-4.2 then usinbg gcc-4.2 instead of gcc04:06
kuttanskarmic 64 bit and oracle anyone got lucky enough here who worked around the relink problem04:06
n8tuserkuttans -> oracle is a beast to install, oracle officially only supports suse and redhat and their own linux.. so trying it on unofficial distro.. you have to jump through hoops04:06
kuttansyeah i can understand, i was having success with oracle xe which was a deb package but still had to do a lot of workaround for that too04:07
n8tusermrbrdo -> but per your posting, you have -lpathhere   not a library file04:07
PhantomLink`337 is on to something04:07
mrbrdolstarnes: same error still04:07
mrbrdon8tuser: yeah i just tried that, i removed it04:07
kuttansso having confidence with that i started oracle 10 g, but with no luck04:07
ArunaThankyou i can install now :)04:07
NoTownKasperIf I was looking to use my gamepad as a remote-control style device for use with Audacious, Movie Player, VLC and perhaps Rhythmbox, would that be possible?04:07
mrbrdon8tuser: how do i set $LD_LIBRARY_PATH04:07
n8tusermrbrdo -> its just an environment variable like $PATH04:08
kuttansi got an idea from one of the forum that gcc is the problem, bcoz gcc for multilib may not be really understanding the .so files correctly04:08
mrbrdon8tuser: how do i set it04:08
NoTownKasperOr should I say, would it be possible to do globally instead of via individual plugins per application?04:08
MrLoganNoTownKasper, what kind of gamepad?04:08
Arunai have just installed the Ubuntu when i see in network connection my Wireless is not visible :(04:08
mrbrdon8tuser: set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib doesn't work04:08
kuttansso i want to have a gcc with -m32 option and im clueless about it04:08
lstarnesmrbrdo: replace set with export04:09
usr13Aruna: Try refresh04:09
NoTownKasperMrLogan: USB, 8 button + d-pad, basically a PS1 style before they added the dual analog joysticks.04:09
n8tusermrbrdo -> what do you mean? did you then try to see if $LD_LIBRARY_PATH  is set?04:09
MrLoganAruna, right click on your network icon. Is Enable Wireless checked?04:09
kuttansn8tuser : do you know about this creating gcc with /usr/bin/gcc -m32 $.*04:09
mrbrdon8tuser: it wasn't or it was empty04:09
n8tuserkuttans nope, and people that makes oracle work gets paid big bux04:09
MrLoganNoTownKasper, I don't see why it wouldn't work. You have it plugged in? Is it visible on the desktop?04:09
Arunano... what it shows in top network link is Wireless Disabled04:10
ArunaWireless Network  Disconnected04:10
NoTownKasperMrLogan: It's plugged in, though I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'visible on the desktop'.04:10
usr13Aruna: is it a laptop?04:10
n8tuserkuttans try to use the officially supported Oracle platforms..04:10
usr13Aruna: ifconfig04:10
Arunai am using HP laptop04:10
usr13Aruna: iwconfig04:11
user_asem lah04:11
n8tusermrbrdo -> and as per lstarnes you have to export it so that it gets carried over to the next shell04:11
wubiogenMrLogan - I was so pleased about the ease. And understanding about the need to have non-free be separately installed. But I cant get it working. (9.04 Dell, did I say wubi?)  :D   --> black youtube. no radio. I've tried several things. have I siad too much ,err installed too much? :/04:11
kuttansnt8user: yeah a good idea.... but the problem with me is that i want to have only one os not dealing with many04:11
b0wHello!!!!!!! anyone here knows how can i change the GTK tooltips-delay-settings?????????04:11
Arunaiwconfig will work ?04:11
usr13Aruna: In a terminal window type iwconfig04:11
mrbrdon8tuser: i did that but it didn't help04:11
kuttanscan i have multiple gcc in my ubuntu 64 and switch between the version with alternative option?04:11
MrLoganNoTownKasper, look at your desktop. Do you see an icon for it visible?04:11
b0wHello!!!!!!! anyone here knows how can i change the GTK tooltips-delay-settings?????????04:11
n8tuserkuttans -> well linux is linux.. not a whole lots of difference, but official distro are perhaps tweaked with oracle's libs04:11
usr13Aruna: Tell us what it says.04:12
NoTownKasperMrLogan: No. But I have things set up so that there are no icons on the desktop for anything.04:12
MrLoganwubiogen, When you attempt to view a youtube video it just shows a black screen? Any sound?04:12

b0wHello!!!!!!! anyone here knows how can i change the GTK tooltips-delay-settings?????????04:13
MrLoganNoTownKasper, there shouldn't be icons unless you plug something in, move something to the desktop, or put in a CD or other removable media. Ok - pull up a terminal.04:13

MrLoganwubiogen, go to google - type in "flash player", hit enter. Open the first link. Choose the option for Ubuntu 8.04+ - open with package handler and install that package.04:14
NoTownKasperMrLogan: Terminal open, but what I mean is I went through gconf-editor and turned off even those icons, even mounted drives don't show on my desktop. :D04:14
mrbrdon8tuser: nevermind, now it works, no idea why though.. i think it may be some problem when saving the build script in nano, because now that i saved it in gedit it seems to work. weird ^^04:14

beyondnotion2for flash they have a ubuntu option under the os04:29
[uNF]NoTownKasper, 32bit04:30
beyondnotion2you have to save the file before you can install it though04:30
NoTownKasper[uNF]: Should be as simple as going to adobe's site and downloading the .deb package...04:30

NoTownKasperWACOMalt: Right-click on your gnome panel of choice (assuming you're using gnome) and click 'add to panel' Add the 'notification area' applet, and your volume icon should re-appear.04:39
Jordan_UWACOMalt: If you need a fix asap you can use "alsamixer" in a terminal to controll volume04:39
[uNF]any suggestions?04:39
XcellNoTownKasper-  that option does not exist in 9.1004:39
WACOMaltJordan_U: I have notification area enabled and it shows04:39

ArunaJordan_U: i have installed but how i know its installed ?04:41
philhWACOMalt, did you change anything, install/remove any packages recently?04:41

WACOMaltphilh: Nope. the audio worked on first install, after the first reboot (without even updating) the sound was dead.  I got it fixed in #alsa, but the sound control icon is gone and cannot be manually launched without the same error.04:42
bryan_log = long04:42

WACOMaltrobin0800: where can I enable this?05:19
fabianSetiAmon: you're downgrading openoffice to v3.0, replacing empathy with pidgin and probably downgrading firefox too. you're also losing a bit of boot time05:20

fabianSetiAmon: yeah, that's a tad weird. I must admit, I haven't used ubuntu thoroughly since Hardy, but i installed Jaunty for a couple of friends and it looked pretty good. another solution (maybe) is to just retrograde your kernel? or alsa? dunno05:26
greaseagoole: the install says these packages are already installed ... also I can't ping anything ... ifconfig shows only a "lo" listing05:26
greezmunkeyIs choppy audio in Karmic an issue for most people? Mine chops a bit, but I figured it's because of this laptop...05:26
agoolegrease: are you using a wired connection ? for some reason you removed your adapters ?05:27
SetiAmonwell I am happy with jaunty(if it ain't broke,why did i try and fix it?) so i don't see what i'm loosing with reinstalling jaunty.Infact the boot time is FASTER then karmic by about 25%05:27

marioatlpcan somebody explain to me how to get the  /dev/controlC0  (and C1)  to always link to /dev/snd/controlC005:59
WACOMaltsoreau: so it bypassed a bug in udev.  Where can I report bugs in udev?05:59
dajhorndefacto: Check the dmesg for read errors on the target computer.05:59

greezmunkeygreese, type ip route, see what you get...06:00
dnosoreau:  Well, I used all the same settings in 8.04.  and it worked.  Now it is like I get to the nas type in the password and it denies me permission.06:01

brandonc503hey all, if i just go open another channel and someone does the same can we chat or do i have to register the room somewhere?06:01
defactodajhorn: the problem isn't in the CD - I had 5 CD's .. As I said, I've downloaded/burned twice with the same result ( Input/Output error, as tty3 says ) while other CD's work just fine ( including Minimal and Desktop ).06:02
greasegreezmunkey: btw, The network I use requires a ip/gateway setup (which I used to do via the windowed interface)06:02
DEElet me see if I can summarize better .. I reinstalled WinXP cuz it was spyware infested, now it only shows my WinXP partitions in the boot loader and not my Ubuntu partition - I cannot load it though I have not changed it.. do I have to reformat my Ubuntu partition and reinstall for like the 3rd time or is there another way to get a loader on there or have my Ubuntu CD create a change for me?06:02
greezmunkeygreese, ok are you using static addresses?06:02
dajhorndefacto: Same advice.  Check the dmesg for drive errors.06:02
=== jony123_busy is now known as jony123
=== fiberfolly__ is now known as fiberfolly
soreaudno: Sounds like a configuration issue. Can you ssh into the other box from there and vice versa?06:02
greasegreezmunkey: ping lo says "unknown host lo" .. yes, I have a static ip assigned to this machine06:02
greezmunkeygreese, ping localhost06:03
defactodajhorn: I'm not going to do it again ( why would I ? ) - was curious if anybody else have the same problem ..06:03
greasegreezmunkey: static (local) ip06:03
dajhorndefacto: The ISOs are not bad.06:03
greezmunkeygreese, try this...sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart06:04
dnosoreau: I can still get in from my 8.04 and winbloze boxes.06:04
greasegreezmunkey: looks like apache is running there .. I get 64 bytes from test_django_app (
soreaudno: idk then06:04
greasegreezmunkey: should I shutdown my apache ?06:04
defactodajhorn: i don't think so anymore .. anyway, thnx for your input. will see how it'll turn out on my friends pc.06:04
greezmunkeygreese, then check ifconfig to see if your static address is assigned (localhost response is good)(no)06:04

UBlondiedajhorn, could you explain the sync option to me please? ...or point me to where I can find out?  I haven't heard of that before06:09

ShwackHello, I  recently did a clean 9.10 install and am lookin at my .xsession-errors file and i dont see anything except for a whole lot of firefox:3449 Gdk-warning :xid collision, trouble ahead.  Can anybody tell me what that is and if it is serious or not/06:28
greasegreezmunkey: I also have to setup a dns server address as (where do I do that ?)06:28
greezmunkeygreese, nomenclature, but the same thing...you need to change your IP to be in the same network as your gateway!06:28
krackpotHello, what logs can I check when the system freezes unexpectedly and the Caps & Scroll lock lights blink on the keyboard? This only started happening today06:28
om26ertrisha: sathiya this is not yahoo chat06:28
mudittulidajhorn , Jordan_U : uninstalling virtualbox-2.0 will also remove my installed guest environments ?06:28
trishahello how old r u?06:29
Omlettekrackpot: If I'm not mistaken, that's a sign of kernel panic.06:29
greezmunkeygreese, nameserver will do you no good until you accomplish my last post first!06:29
dajhornmudittuli: No.06:29
mudittuliokies, thanks06:29
trishaoh my god06:29
dajhornkrackpot: Run the memtest utility from the grub menu.06:29
greezmunkeygreese, change X.X.10.X to X.X.11.X06:29
krackpotOmlette: should I be worried? Is there something the system generates to tell me what exactly panicked?06:29
hymanany takers on my video mode not supported problem on new 9.10 wubi install?06:30
krackpotdajhorn: I just finished doing a memtest, no errors06:30
Omlettekrackpot: I'm not sure. Let me ask the bot.06:30
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about kernelpanic06:30
greezmunkeygreese, you will edit your interfaces file, then restart networking, ok?06:30
greasegreezmunkey: ok .. btw, this computer (from the one I'm connected rt now) also has similar settings .. ip:, netmask:, gateway:
Omlettekrackpot: Yes, you should be worried. It indicates the OS is having problems.06:30
i_is_broke!info kernelpanic06:30
ubottuPackage kernelpanic does not exist in karmic06:30
om26ergrease: did you upgraded from jaunty?06:31
mudittulidajhorn: how can i take a backup of the guest environment ?, just in case !06:31
dajhornkrackpot: If it keeps happening, then you'll need to watch the console and/or /var/log/messages.  The next thing to check is your video card.06:31
OmletteApparently, the "fglrx" drivers can cause kernel panics.06:31
om26ergrease: if you did upgrade and now if you can make a clean install that will fix it.06:32
TylerNTvideo drivers are pretty much the crutch of all OS's..06:32
krackpotdajhorn: Ok, I'll take a peak. This has happened 4-5 times today. But only today. Clean install of 9.10 x6406:32
OmletteOnly today? Interesting.06:32
dajhornmudittuli: I think that you need to export the VM.  VirtualBox is somewhat stupid about its disk registry that way.06:32
greasegreezmunkey: changing xx.10. to xx.11. and restarting network seems to have worked ... resytart eth0 worked !06:32
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about oulse06:33
ubottuPulseAudio is a sound server intended as a drop-in replacement for !ESD - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PulseAudio for information and installation instructions06:33
krackpotOmlette: Yeah, I'm baffled06:33
RoastedDoes anybody have frequent flash issues? Before I went from Jaunty to Karmic, flash was perfect. I went to karmic, things blew up, did a fresh install to Jaunty, and now flash sucks completely. Eveyr few minutes when I refresh a youtube page, the screen is white, no video to display, and I have to restart firefox.06:33
greasegreezmunkey: thanks !! how do I get my ubuntu windows up again06:34
TylerNTyah I've flash issues with compiz06:34
greezmunkeygreese, did that help?06:34
smackd<CITguy_Artemis> how do i set permissions for apache to let /var/www/image/  show images?06:34
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about videoeditor06:34
brando753how can i find how much memory my video card has?06:34
TylerNTturns out flash+compiz doesn't like to let the left mouse button work06:34
om26ertell me then name of a video editor  plz06:35

brando753how can i find how much memory my video card has?06:36
greasegreezmunkey: it says "/usr/bin/X11/X not found .. xinit no such file or directory ..."06:36
smackdall pics are in /var/www/image/06:36
soreauTylerNT: Does it still happen even when you disable effects?06:36
greezmunkeygreese, did the machine run x on boot?06:36
dajhornbrando753: Look in the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file for the line that says "Memory:".   Don't re-ask that quicklky.06:36
greasegreezmunkey: I don;t think so06:36
TylerNTno it doesn't.. but if I right click and hold I can then left click normally06:36
CITguy_Artemissmackd: then you need to do a "chmod -R 755 /var/www/image" ( you may need to be sudo )06:36
CITguy_Artemissry, "+R"06:37
greezmunkeytry this, cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf see what happens...06:37
krackpotOmlette: Not really. I'm not exactly sure what I should be looking for. I'm trying to look at the times and events around the time that the kernel panicked06:37
Blue1can iptraf be used to monitor traffic on something other then "localhost?"  If so, I'm not seeing it in the man....06:37

FlynsarmyMy laptops connected to the network via ethernet. Network manager appears to have both ethernet+wifi connected (both are set to use the same IP). In previous ubuntu installs i could disconnect the ethernet and wifi would kick in without losing internet connection. In karmic the wifi icon appears (as if its connected) but i need to manually reconnect before it works. Why?06:37

ubottuorfeo: En la mayoría de canales Ubuntu se comunica en inglés. Para ayuda en Español, por favor entre en los canales #ubuntu-es o #kubuntu-es.06:37

greezmunkeygreese, it would'nt in that case. I'm not going to be much more help to you greese, as I would have to do some serious reading and catching up first. Maybe someone else here can. At least your'e on line06:44

arvind_khadrihi, how do i execute the perl files in the browser?the browser is treating it as a file and offers me to download it...06:48
CITguy_Artemisarvind_khadri: perl files are not meant to be run in a browser. they are meant to be run via command line06:48
foul_owlanyone else have problems with pulseaudio taking up waaay too much cpu and mem?06:49
TylerNTI think he's talking about running servlets06:49
ekontsevoyKarmic brought an unberably fugly Gnome login screen, and took away "Login Window Preferences" panel. How do I get rid of that terrible login screen?06:49
CITguy_Artemisfoul_owl: not really...how many applications are running that use sound?06:49
brando753xzcvczx: it didnt mention memory size anywhere06:49
arvind_khadriCITguy_Artemis, actually a html file here uses a perl scrip, so when i hit submit it asks me to download the script...06:49

vividhas anyone experienced "popping" or crackling with pulseaudio in 9.10?06:50
brando753xzcvczx: intel06:51
foul_owlthen i am forced to killall -9 pulseaudio :(06:51
xzcvczxbrando753: then it shares your system memory06:51
ekontsevoyTylerNT: no, mine is a fresh install and I cannot stand the login screen: it wastes a lot of time on useless animation and looks terrible in my opinion06:51
CITguy_Artemisfoul_owl: which ubuntu version are you using?06:51
dajhornvivid: Yes, I had it with my hda sound card in a laptop computer.  One of the fixes was to disable power management on the sound card.06:51
vividdajhorn, do you remember how you did that? i have one of those intel hd things too i think06:52

Cthulhu82Κόσμος και κοσμάκης, βλέπω!!06:54

arvind_khadriTylerNT, i have apache running06:55
optimizerwhy does ubuntu take so long to go from gdm to running my .xession file?06:55
marcothis is difficult06:55
CITguy_Artemisarvind_khadri: what exactly is the html page supposed to do?06:55
TylerNTthen you need the server hooks for perl06:55
optimizerwhy does ubuntu take so long to go from gdm to running my .xession file? i have a test where all it does is load up xterm; and it takes forevber on ubuntu 9.10; whereas it was blazing fast on ubuntu 9.0406:56
foul_owlCITguy_Artemis: Thanks for the advice. I will try it. Cheers!06:56
dajhornvivid: You can get more detail from this bug and its duplicates:  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/38120106:56
josh_is it just me or is grub2 overcomplicated compared to grub?06:56
dajhornvivid: Add your "meetoo" if you have a Launchpad account.06:56
josh_i miss the menu.lst06:56
d9500josh_, i second the motion. grub2, while superior from a technical standpoint, does take some getting used to06:57
dajhornvivid: The solution is to put "options snd-hda-intel power_save=0" in the /etc/modules.d  for your system.  The particular file could vary depending on your system and hardware.06:57
messiahi have tryed ubuntu and kubuntu; now i have just installed xubuntu, and i can't find my ntfs's partitions... why? :(06:57
vividdajhorn, yes i have one, but im not in a saturday night state of mind for posting :o06:57
CITguy_Artemisjosh_: well, grub2 does more than the last version did. One feature in particular that stuck out was the ability to have grub2 run an ISO that is contained on the local hard drive as if it were burned on a cd. So with additional features, it's expected to have more complicated processes.06:58
arvind_khadriCITguy_Artemis, TylerNT found it thanks, need to specify the mime types, FF sees it just as a file so a ~/mime.type must be created and an entry for perl must be made06:58
hullohello, i have a fresh install and when i go to install nvidia restricted drivers im getting a message:  installArchives() failed06:58
josh_im not sure but xubuntu might need ntfs3g installed06:58
CITguy_Artemisarvind_khadri: oh, ok. I'll have to keep that in my FYI file.06:58
mrlolplxcan someone plx help me install a different vnc server for display 0 than the standard one in ubuntu 9.10 because it really sucks.06:58
arvind_khadriCITguy_Artemis, or else you can even edit /etc/mime.types , let me finish and see which file works06:59
TylerNTarvind: well that's one way to do it.. you can also setup apache to run those files itself and block them from people trying to wget them.06:59
vividdajhorn, thank you for that info06:59

greaseis there a way I can force "apt-get reinstall" to download packages freshly ... I've changed some sources and would like to reinstall from a fresh downloaded package07:35
SwedeMikegrease: delete /var/apt/cache07:36
TylerNTgrease: apt-get clean07:36
gouravi have installed ubuntu on my lenovo 3000 g430 laptop.07:36
talsemgeestmessiah: I think xubuntu is a good choice, it is lighter than most distros and should be good for an old computer07:36
FishsceneHello everyone. I have a startup script that I'd like to create a desktop shortcut  so that the script exectutes. Here's the full command: "./home/administrator/Desktop/tss2_rc2/teamspeak2-server_startscript start" Is there a way to do this?07:36
syn-ackSwedeMike, you dont want to delete the whole directory like that... can lead to some nasties07:36
messiahtalsemgeest, it seems to be a bit slowly right now... maybe too old computer? or maybe because i didn't reboot it?07:37
SwedeMikesyn-ack: well, I meant the contents, I see how my advice could have been mistaken as a suggestion to delete the dir.07:37
Dr_WillisFishscene:  make a script that contains that command - then chmod +x it. thn make a launcher that runs the script is a easy way07:37
Dr_WillisFishscene:  or just make a launcher that does the full command.07:37
talsemgeestmessiah: If xubuntu is too slow, there are even lighter distros out there. But hopefully it isnt too slow to use?07:37
greaseTylerNT: so "apt-get clean package-name", followed by "apt-get install package-name" ?07:37
syn-ackgrease, that wont work07:38
Dr_WillisFishscene:  and the . at the start is proberly not needed in the path07:38
d9500grease: open terminal, then cd /var/cache/apt/archives, then sudo rm *deb, or if you prefer doig it the gui way, then open use gksu nautilus in terminal to open your file browser w/ root priveliges, put /var/cache/apt/archives in the address bar, hit enter, and then, once in that directory, delete any package with a deb extnsion07:38

chu_marco - just state the issue, if someone knows a solution they will help.07:38
TylerNTyah just clean it will clean all cache for installation archives07:39
syn-ackFishscene, have you tired to add open quotes to the path07:39
Dr_WillisJakobLaursen:  try a clean install of 9.10 is another option.07:39
talsemgeestJakobLaursen: Quite often a clean install will give you better results than an upgrade07:39
Fishsceneopen quotes?07:39
messiahtalsemgeest, not too slow, but it is a little bit for my thinking... maybe there is something wrong in this computer... some months ago, when i was using it... i used it with xp sp2 and it went fine... then i format all and installed xp sp3 uE and it becomes slow....07:39

marcoI have a built in mic, how do i use it for skype and stuff07:39
draconisI think JakobLaursen has tried a clean install, am I right?07:39
Dr_WillisFishscene:  thats why i say make a script. and have the launcher run the script07:39
SwedeMikeJakobLaursen: what you're doing is like saying "my car won't work, what is wrong with it" to a mechanic. It's hard to say anthing without more information.07:39
troopperigourav: what kernel you have, type terminal; uname -r07:40
syn-ackso it would be `./home/administrator/Desktop/tss2_rc2/teamspeak2-server_startscript start`07:40
JakobLaursenDr_Willis: I can't start the install with the 9.10-disc. It won't boot either. Have tried to burn more than one disc – even kubuntu and edubuntu as well. same problem with all07:40
messiahtalsemgeest, i have just installed partition editor, but i can't see it in system :(07:40
talsemgeestmessiah: Well computers do degrade over time, but the slow-ness shouldnt have carried over from xp to xubuntu07:40
chu_JakobLaursen - I've actually had more success with the Karmic beta, now I have been told I am not allowed to tell you this, but if the official Karmic isn't working, try the beta (I can't install official Karmic)07:41
Fishscene"There was an error creating the child process for this terminal" Let me try a different launcher method07:41

syn-ackmarco, are you sure the driver supports a mic? Which sound card do you have?07:43
marcohow do i check07:43
draconismessiah, that's kind of smallish ram07:43
messiahtalsemgeest, draconis --- with that specs i made well in make the partition ext4? or it should be ext3? maybe it would be faster?07:43
syn-ackmarco,  lspci | grep snd07:43
talsemgeestmessiah: No, the filesystem should not change the speed07:43
draconismessiah, ext3 is probably better for stability07:44

qjqqyyi'd rather syat with the old grub07:49
clutchwhats the default root pass?07:49
d9500dosia: but it's proably better to shut your system down, if you can, than to go and delete a large file that you find without knowing what that file is. if you have another computer you can use, then run the du command on the computer that's got the big file/s on it, then shut that computer down, and google the name of the largest files to mae sure you dont delete a fil tyour system needs to run07:49
talsemgeestclutch: There is no default07:49
marcoi typed it and i got nothing is there any spaces07:50
Anger78@clutch : there is no07:50
talsemgeestclutch: By default you can not log in as root07:50
qjqqyyjust use sudo07:50
qjqqyy$sudo bash to switch to root07:50
Jordan_U!root | clutch07:50
ubottuclutch: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo07:50
d9500clutch: open terminal and run sudo -i. enter your user's password. that will you a terminal prompt that says something like root@desktop$. be careful when running commands as root, b/c you can modify and delete any files that way.07:51
messiahtalsemgeest, last thing; do you think i can download jdownloader and install it in ext4 partition and use the folder for downloads in the ntfs one? or it is better to format it to ext4 too?07:51
Anger78sudo su should do the same07:51
talsemgeestmessiah: As far as I can tell, it should not matter where you download them to07:52

Dr_WillisI was just toying with lubuntu-desktop on 9.10 today  :) it uses lxde.. and .. it needs work. :)08:00
upgrdmandraconis, i don't have that in my ps -aux output... but i have had the flash plugin crash frequently. is there some known problem?08:01
messiahtalsemgeest, i go to IPv4, manual, set ip, mask and gateway, but then i can't click in apply08:01
vigoDr_Willis: Yes! it does and we need your help.08:01
alca7razmessiah: did you set a dns?08:01
draconisupgrdman, well, that's the full path to it08:01

lee909scusate dove trovo un canale in italiano?08:02
dosiad9500 It would allow anyone using computer to do as he want, so i think no... i think i tried this once, without succes. btw, du doesn't work properly any more, maybe i could find a process making this instead of file?08:02
draconisupgrdman, and it's really iffy. sometimes it doesn't like the sound system, sometimes it crashes due to the browser, etc08:02
talsemgeestmessiah: Make sure that you have filled out all the information08:02
SeanInSeattleHey all.  I'm trying to boot from USB, and I've used usb creator to copy the iso files to the usb stick, but when my laptop boots it doesn't seem to find it bootable.  :(08:02
bazhanglee909, #ubuntu-it for italian08:02
upgrdmandraconis, ya i known. nothing with flash in it... | grep flash ... yields nothing but grep flash08:02
talsemgeestmessiah: You only need 1 dns, but make sure you have entered the ip address, subnet mask and gateway as well08:03
bazhangSeanInSeattle, I have had trouble with that, what version of ubuntu are you using currently08:03
messiahtalsemgeest, alca7raz "search domains" is the second DNS?08:03
dosiad9500 sorry for long time answering i have lag08:03

Dr_Willisvigo:  biggest issue i see with all these whatever-desktops is they fight with each other over the default file manager.. after installing lubuntu-desktop - pcmanfm became the default gnome file manager depending on how i launched the file manager/icon - that promted me to remove lubuntu-desktop right then. I HATE pcmanfm.08:03
SeanInSeattlebazhang:  I'm running ubuntu 9.1, and trying to create the usb stick with the same version.08:03
talsemgeestmessiah: Left it empty, and it still allows me to click apply08:03
draconisupgrdman, when it's not running it won't be there, keep that in mind08:03
jacobopetermanhey does anyone know why i cant connect to AIM or MSN with pidgin anymore? the other day both just stopped working08:03
draconisupgrdman, if it just crashes before it starts, for instance08:04
Dr_Willisvigo:  i noticed similer isues with kde4 fighting with gnome file manager also. but  ive not seen that in 9.1008:04
messiahtalsemgeest, alca7raz  i have just did it as before and it doesn't allow me to click apply08:04
kuttanshello coming back to the usb mouse getting different /dev/input/eventN every time its plugged in+ how to stop that and make it to stick to only one /dev/input/event608:04
kuttansanyone having any idea about this08:04
bazhangSeanInSeattle, unetbootin is the repos for karmic, you may wish to try usb-creator again (it took me a couple tries to get it right) or install unetbootin and give that a try08:04
upgrdmandraconis, ok, but one of my cores has been at 100% for over an hour now. and still nothing like that in ps aux. no browsers open either08:04
vigoDr_Willis: Lets take this to the Lubuntu channel? wait,,,08:05
SeanInSeattlebazhang:  Sure, I'll try unetbootin08:05
talsemgeestmessiah: The only explaination I can think of is that you entered the info wrong08:05
messiahtalsemgeest, alca7raz - - ----- DNS well entered08:05
d9500dosia: hit alt+f2 and type gnome-system-monitor to show how much resources each program is using. but that only shows cpu and ram use, so unless your system is doing a huge amount of swapping to the hard drive, then i don't know that the system monitor will indicate much08:05
draconisupgrdman, uh, no browsers open?08:05
draconisupgrdman, then flash isn't running08:05
talsemgeestmessiah: Set to manual in the ipv4 tab?08:05
upgrdmandraconis, ya.. exactly my point08:05
Dr_Willisflash can crash and be still running i think after the broiwser closes.08:05
messiahtalsemgeest, i have my netbook in my legs and i am copying the same info of it here... just changing the last numberr of the ip08:06
draconisupgrdman, if you mean that apport is squawking at you, apport is somewhat buggy itself08:06
messiahtalsemgeest, yes dude08:06
upgrdmanwhat is apport?08:06
draconisupgrdman, what I assume is notifying you that "flash keeps crashing"08:06
talsemgeestmessiah: Well, the only thing I can suggest is to do it manually: http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-ubuntu-linux-convert-dhcp-network-configuration-to-static-ip-configuration.html08:07

draconisupgrdman, since you're obviously not seeing flash crash on your own (you don't even have a browser running)08:07
vigoDr_Willis: Please join /lubuntu08:07
messiahtalsemgeest, i think i must fill in "searching domains" maybe that is the second DNS??08:07

D3RGPS31how do i regenerate all directories/defaults of /var (it's deleted*08:07
upgrdmanok, let me start over. flash is not the problem right now. flash was brough up by someone else earlier... my problem is that my cpu montior shows one core at 100% but ps aux or gnome-monitor shows hardly any cpu usage. but temps reflect the cpu as working hard08:07
messiahtalsemgeest, it is in white, not in grey as the other that it doesn't allow me to write in08:08
talsemgeestmessiah: Like I said, it allows me to click apply without that box filled08:08
bazhangD3RGPS31, why would you ever delete those08:08
D3RGPS31bazhang: seperate partition, thought i backed it up08:08
messiahtalsemgeest, do i have to write something in "routes"?08:08
SeanInSeattlebazhang:  Yeah, Unetbootin is working out great.08:08
draconisupgrdman, oh08:08
talsemgeestmessiah: I didnt08:08
draconisupgrdman, is there anything in "top" that is high cpu use?08:09
Anger78bit ot: how can i swictch between open channels in xirc?08:09
D3RGPS31bazhang: are you able to help me?08:09
draconisupgrdman, or whatever process viewer you use, I think gnome-monitor has one that lists all the processes08:09
messiahtalsemgeest, i have just tryed to enter the second dns on that other box, but still it doesn't allow me to click apply08:09
upgrdmanthe only thing shows more than 0.8% cpu usage is syslog @ 24%08:09
talsemgeestmessiah: Check that link I gave you, it will let you force your settings08:10
