Jinxwarepfifo, dhcpcd has a parameter to not update resolv.conf automatically, but dhclient seems to lack this option00:12
azul(\ /)00:12
pfifoIzinucs, is your router also doing NAT? It might ignore anyone outside that range00:13
=== Guest23170 is now known as jasonjang
pfifoIzinucs, try setting a static ip inside that range and see if it works, also is your router blocking ping?00:14
FawnYou could use static IP on ubuntu. The dhclient/network manager stuff seems too complex00:14
Izinucspfifo: it is doing NAT.. doesn't block ping from inside the LAN.. but I'll try your suggestion..00:14

onetinsoldierNotTooSmart Justin_`: you do have to set up a firewall. iptables is in the kernel, but iptables are not used until it's given some rules/policy and then activated. or did i miss something? have you turned on a firewall Justin_`?01:53

Myke516I have a question, how do you remove a program that was installed. I Installed google earth, and now i cant seem to uninstall it02:03
Dr_WillisMyke516:  depends on how you installed it02:04
airtonixMyke516, how did you install it02:04
faileasMyke516: how did you install it? using a deb, a repo, or a script?02:04
onetinsoldierredduck676: that page for that link, on that page, click on the word 'Karmic' for your arch.... i386 or x86_6402:04
Myke516hmmm. googleearthlinux.bin02:04
faileasif its the first two, you can use apt or aptitude. if its the latter, there should be an uninstall script somewhere02:04
Myke516that file, i think i did "Sudo sh googleearthlinux.bin02:04
Dr_WillisMyke516:  if you ran the installer as a user. I Think it installed to the 'googleearth' directory - If you did sudo.. no idea where it went02:05
Dr_WillisMyke516:  it might have an uninstall option. I use the repos that have googleearth02:05

Pici!runlevels | onetinsoldier02:56
ubottuonetinsoldier: In Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.02:56
onetinsoldierPici: roger. thanks. i think things have change in that regard since the last i knew02:56
Myke516does anyone know how I can change all of the file permissions of a file in a folder?02:57
mcgronkI'm having trouble getting my printer (HP LaserJet 1320) to print over ethernet in 9.04... anyone have luck doing this?02:58
onetinsoldierMyke516: do you mean "the permissions of all the files contained in a folder"?02:58
jeeezguys, is there any way i can have amarok import my rhythmbox library?02:58
Myke516Yes onetin02:58
trismMyke516: find folder_name -type f -exec chmod permissions {} + (assuming you mean recursively)02:58
B3rz3rk3rSomeone have a link that explains how home folder encryption works when installing Ubuntu (9.10)?02:59
trismMyke516: replacing folder_name with the path to the folder and permissions with the permissions you want to apply02:59
renegaidwhy encrypt?02:59
Dr_Willissctually dosent chmod have a -r option?02:59
onetinsoldierDr_Willis: yes. it does02:59
trismDr_Willis: yes but it will change directories too, and if you -x you can't traverse them03:00
B3rz3rk3rrenegaid, data security is normally the main reason03:00
Dr_Willis# Script to fix permissions on all files below current dir   ---> find -type f -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 66403:00
renegaidI see.03:00
Myke516apparently i cant seem to delete something, i just want to delete a folder i cant seem to do it since im not root, but i cant be root in anything but the terminal03:00
=== ubuntu is now known as ubuntu123
Myke516i really dont know how to explain it03:00
Dr_Willistrism:  yea i got a fixdirs.sh also :)    find -type d -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 75503:01
Dr_WillisMyke516:  install mc and use it as your root file manager.. is one way.   sudo apt-get install mc, then sudo mc03:01
Dr_WillisMyke516:  or learn more shell basics. (always a good idea)03:01
ubuntu123ubuntu's installer just stops after choosing the keyboard layout, it seems to still be running fine but the next step doesnt appear.03:02

MrZhihey, if I chown '.' inside a directory, will that allow the user to write inside the directory while maintaining root.root over that directory?03:04
B3rz3rk3rseems like it would be a better idea to just use something like TrueCrypt from what they say there jellow_?03:05

jellow_B3rz3rk3r: I would use true Crypt , up to you though03:06

clamiamrahduke, http://www.zophar.net/frontends/universal.html03:07

Dr_WillisDemoOn:  check out -> http://www.linuxliveusb.com/03:35
onetinsoldierDemoOn: unetbootin03:35
vocxSnowy09, but do you run Ubuntu currently? Do you just want to erase all data? You can do that easily with the Vista installation DVD I suppose, and even with the Ubuntu Live CD.03:36
DemoOnonetinsoldier: unetbootin is only for installation?03:36
Dr_WillisThat luinuxliveusb has some features that unetbootin dosent03:36
Dr_WillisDemoOn:  it generates a bootable 'live' flash drive03:36
kholbyBerzerker:   You have an active connection on the machine with the problem?  I'm assuming that's the one you're using.03:36
Dr_WillisDemoOn:  you can use to install from03:36
DemoOnonetinsoldier: i wanted that when i will change something on that liveusb, i want to stay after reboot03:36
Berzerkerkholby, yeah it's connected over ethernet atm03:36
n00pguys I have a laptop and something is terribly wrong.. just now the mouse started moving to the lower right hand corner, I can't get it away from there it just moves back to the lower right hand corner. I'm not even touching my mousepad.03:36
nowirelessNBerzerker: even though lspci says its a '100' its actually a '1000' and intel has this to say about it "The Intel® WiFi Link 1000 is an IEEE802.11b/g/Draft-N1 wireless network adapterthat operates in the 2.4 GHz spectrum"03:36

greezmunkeyn00p, do you have a P1 Phillips screwdriver?03:39
DDwiit should give you a  link nr03:39
n00pgreezmunkey why would I need that?03:39
[BT]BrendanOk Berzerker I still seem a little lost about which file system to go with. Mac compatibility isnt the most important for my needs... yet. mainly linux and windows, but with the ability to install sometihng on a mac to make it work.03:39
nrDDwi, sorry never used pastbin before:03:39
Berzerker[BT]Brendan, if you only need read support while on OS X, then NTFS is probably your best bet.03:40

SantisnightCan anyone here help with a Virtual box issue? (everyone at #vbox seems to be asleep)03:40
[BT]BrendanWell I need it for recording my music. and Mac are big in the music recording industry so writing would be important03:40
nrI'm able to mess around with cfdisk.  I built a swap partition, ext3 for /boot, and XFS for /,  but the installer sees none of it03:40
Dr_WillisSantisnight:  state the issue and see.. - Virtualbox does have some very good docs/manuals on their hiomepage03:40
greezmunkeyn00p, The inspirons sometimes have an issue with the touchpads where the case will press one side of the touchpad too hard. You can correct the issue by making sure that all the screws on the botom are torqued the same amount. Sounds crazy, I know!03:41
nrWhat you see now is the result of my deleting all the partitions03:41
[BT]BrendanAlso used as a back up drive, so im looking at the dual drives with raid so it dupes everything03:41

chad_hey i am new to ubuntu and wondering if there is a way to install on an original xbox without mods03:41
Dr_Willischad_:  not without some mods03:41
[BT]Brendan*thats what I'm looking at buying*03:41
SantisnightDr_Willis,  someone reacted finally thanks though;03:41
Berzerker[BT]Brendan, if you buy MacDrive on Windows, the read/write support for HFS+ on it is excellent, linux native read/write support for HFS+ is also great, so it would be best all around03:41
nrDDwi, if ATM == 'at the moment', I can make a filesystem on it.03:41
nrI can try mounting and r/w files; haven't done that...03:42
Berzerker[BT]Brendan, if you don't want to spend money on it, then your next best selection would be NTFS03:42
chad_i read someting about using an original version of mechassult are there any other ways to soft mod so it will run03:42

jacob__hi. How do I use Samba?03:46
Dr_Willis!samba | jacob__03:46
ubottujacob__: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/9.10/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.03:46
yabooonetinsoldier: libc-bin version none03:46
DDwinr, hmm thats odd, what about gparted in your system -> administration -> menue03:47
Dr_Willisjacob__:  its also documuneted in the 'samba-doc' package. (3 books in there) :)03:47
nrDDwi, I'll check it out; let you know in a mo03:47
onetinsoldieryaboo: are you able to install that package by chance? i don't know that you will be able to, but try --> sudo apt-get install libc-bin03:47
chad_dr_willis that makes sense and i have a computer with linux but with three children fighting over the internet i wanted to put a third machine with online capabillities in the house for very little money ie free03:47
Dr_Willischad_:  you still need xbox -> usb adaptors. to use normal keyboard/mice I belive.03:48
nrDDwi, gparted comes up and sees all three partitions with a nice graphical display03:48
yabooonetinsoldier: getting unmet dependencies03:48
onetinsoldieryaboo: ok, sounds good03:48
Dr_Willischad_:  there might be some xbox soft mods out. but i dont pay attention to xbox mod info any more03:48
DDwinr, but sudo fdisk -l doesn't display the partitions?03:49

nrYou'll see the partitions03:49
crombHello, I have an issue with SSH users connecting to my server without requesting a shell/executing a command.  I have tried using the ForceCommand option in sshd_config but this still doesn't appear to force these users to load their shell.03:49
DDwinr,  ah that looks better, you can boot into that or that is just what you've done manually?03:49
crombeep hit enter a bit early, would anyone have any suggestions on another way to force ssh clients to load a shell =|03:49
nrDDwi, that's just what I've done manually03:50
chad_dr_willis: i don't know if it works both ways but i bought a cheep usb cord and cut it in half and cut the plug off the xbox remote and soldered color to color and it works for games on the computer i think the reverse would have the same effect03:50
nrI can't get the installer to acknowledge that the disk or the partitions exist03:50
nrDDwi, I haven't tried any kind of manual install; I was hoping to run the installer.03:50
DDwinr, is this a SATA hdd?03:50
nrDDwi, yes it is.03:51
PrototypeX29Ais firefox's spell checling related to it's preferred languages in any way?03:51

jacob__Can someone explain to me how I use Wine?03:51
jacob__I just installed it.03:51
chad_dr_willis: ms doesn't even support the original anymore they should make a cheep bios reformat disk03:51
nrjacob__, if you get an exe file, like an installer, you can run 'wine install.exe'03:52
onetinsoldierjacob__: i think one of the first things you do is set it up with the command 'winecfg'03:52
DDwinr, what does df -h show?03:52
nrjacob__, yes 'winecfg' is good too03:52
Dr_Willischad_:  yea.. right... and they should open source Dos While you are waiting for that to happen...03:52
jacob__so basically03:52
jacob__1. Download installer .exe to desktop03:52
jacob__2. Open terminal + wine install-program-here.exe03:53

greezmunkeyChromium they call it I think03:56
Dr_WillisBerzerker:  the deb from google installs/setsup a repo for them03:56
Berzerkergreezmunkey, chromium is the OS project that Google Chrome is based off of03:56
nrBerzerker: google chrome native linux works pretty well except for PDFs03:56
vocxiWolf, perhaps you need to install something called "Guest additions"; it's a virtual CD that is inside the virtual machine, which installs better support for the mouse and screen. Then you may be able to maximize it fully. I can confirm this because I don't have virtualbox currently installed, but I've done it in the past.03:57
Berzerkernr, thanks03:57
iWolfI've got the "disk"03:57
iWolfWhat now?03:57
greezmunkey Berzerker, cool w/me I don't use it anyway!03:57
crombdoes anyone know how to force ssh clients to run their shell03:57
Berzerkergreezmunkey, lol03:57
DDwinr, next step is to re-run the installer and keep an eye on /var/log/messages on the command line something like tail -30 /var/log/messages should do it03:57
vocxiWolf, you should be able to mount it and run it inside the virtual machine.03:58
nrOK, will run and check the logs with tail -f03:58

Dr_Willisranjan:  i did it once ages ago for shareing a ntfs over samba.. but  I dont recall what i had to do.04:11
ranjanDr_Willis : i tried to asign the values  by folowing an guide in the community centre i mean to say by referring documentation but i am not able to figer out the exact values ... as after reborting i found my d drive that i want to share on network was not showing up in my linux box so  i am looking out for that particular values ... so that i can assign it ...04:15
Dr_Willis'not showing up' is proberly a different issue then  the dmask/umask values bein wrong04:15
Dr_Willisive had samba shares on wiondows machines not 'show' up - untill i used the ip# of the server not its name. (not sure why)04:16

xanguasudipta: compiz --replace   ¿¿¿06:41

sudiptashazbotmcmurder:i have tried that but a message "destop effect could not be enabled"message popped06:42
MauritianGuyhello there06:43
MauritianGuyi need some help06:43
MauritianGuywith partioning and dual booting06:43
candysargento, cannot create directory `/media/dev/sda1': No such file or director06:43
ShazbotMcMurder!ask | MauritianGuy06:43
ubottuMauritianGuy: 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. :-)06:43
sebsebseb!details | MauritianGuy06:43
ubottuMauritianGuy: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."06:43
MauritianGuywell i want to add an extra Os to my boot loader06:43
candysargento, i got that message06:43
MauritianGuythanks ShazbotMcMurder06:43
sebsebsebMauritianGuy: what are you trying to dual boot?06:44
MauritianGuyi successfully dual boot XP pro and Ubuntu06:44
MauritianGuyi ventured into adding fedora 10 to the list which is getting tricky for me06:44
disappearedngwhy did my firefox 3.6 roll back to 3.5.7? that is so annoying06:44
MauritianGuynow i used the live cd i burnt for fedora06:45
sebsebsebMauritianGuy: apparantly with Karmic/9.10's  Grub 2, because of the way it's been done, can't dual/multi boot  with other distros06:45
MauritianGuyi c06:45
sargentocandy, don't use the name you got from dev. You can create, options, pendrive1, usbflash, myusbdevice, etc, in order, it shoud be "/media/pendrive1","/media/usbflash" or "/media/myusbdevice" for example06:45
thinkertinkerdisappearedng did you run the correct firefox executable?the 3.6 one you downloaded?06:46
sudiptashazbotmcmurder:i have tried that but a message "destop effect could not be enabled"message popped06:46
MauritianGuywhat if i modify the boot.ini file in wx pro would that make any changes06:46
sargentoMauritianGuy, you need to configure GRUB06:46
sudiptashazbotmcmurder:hello r u there?06:46
sebsebsebMauritianGuy: anyway dual booting or triple or whatever booting OS's isn't that great really,  you could pick a distro and virtual machine others, with enough RAM and such06:46
candysargento, ok i did then?06:46
disappearedngno I did an "upgrade" within firefox06:46
disappearedngand now that option is gone06:47
MauritianGuycoz i am sure i did install fedora on a specific partition but i did not install the boot loader as it was threatning to erease the previous bootloader which was the ubuntu one06:47
sargentocandy, what's the name of your dir you just create?06:47
candysargento, usbflash06:47
ShazbotMcMurdersudipta, yes.06:47
sebsebsebMauritianGuy: there's the old Grub in the repo as an option,  Fedora's Grub could boot up Ubuntu as well.  The Windows boot loader can be edited some how to boot up Linux distros.06:47
ShazbotMcMurderI don't know why - do you have the video card drivers installed06:47
sargentocandy, Please retype the /dev dir is your pendrive06:48

Myrttisudipta: youu don't.06:49
FoolishOwlAnd gmail, through https. But other https sites didn't work, so I'm not sure what that's about.06:49
sebsebsebsudipta: you would have to go through 8.10 and 9.04 first,  also 9.04 to 9.10 upgrade might go wrong.  Might as well stay on 8.04 and wait untill 10.04 released at the end of April, which is the next Long Term Support release, which you will then be able to upgrade directly to.  No Ext4 or Grub 2 as far as I know on upgrade, but don't need those anyway.06:49
candysargento, then?06:49
superlinuxHEX ... can you check if you have perms on the file06:49

sudiptahow can i get a free copy of ubuntu10.04?06:50
FoolishOwlfaileas, I'm pretty sure it's not a dns issue.06:50

Dr_Willissudipta:  at this time.. you dont06:50
Dr_Willissudipta:  when its released you can06:50
Tesssai upgraded from 9.4 to 9.10 and it works perfectly for me06:50

sudiptawhat r ubuntu long term projects?06:51
ShapeShifter499ziroday: ah ha I knew there was a irc channel, I didn't put that second # sign06:51
sebsebseb!lts |  sudipta06:52
ubottusudipta: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Hardy (Hardy Heron 8.04).  The next LTS release is scheduled to be !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)06:52
thinkertinkerFoolishOwl i think browsers are supposed to work when wget works06:52
faileaser,, MauritianGuy you can pick either06:52
ubottuLucid Lynx is the codename for Ubuntu 10.04, due April 2010 - Lucid is NOT released and is NOT stable - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+106:52

ascheelok, so /dev/sdb1 is *NOT* the new drive you just put in07:16
venportsorry again...07:16
ascheelit's your primary drive.07:16
Dr_WillisRalphSpencer:  iso files from what disk?07:16
RalphSpencercd disks .. ones like ubuntu ?07:17
Dr_WillisRalphSpencer:  Huh?  you want to make an image of a cd/dvd optical disk? theres several ways to do that07:17
venportok so who to i find where that drive is?07:17
ascheelvenport: fdisk -l07:17
Dr_WillisRalphSpencer:  dd if=/dev/cdrom of=cd.iso  bs=204807:18
RalphSpencerthen please tell the least a painful way, doctor07:18
RalphSpencerwowoo that easy?07:18
Dr_WillisRalphSpencer:  thats the normal way. I may have bs at the wrong spot07:18
Dr_WillisRalphSpencer:  this is linux.. of COURSE its taht easy07:18
Dr_Willisif you dont use bs=  the copy will be slow07:18
ascheelIt's only difficult when it's Micro$oft07:18
RalphSpencerand bs ?07:18
ascheelRalphSpencer: bs = block size07:19
Dr_Willisbs = block size07:19
RalphSpencerjust let it to 2048?07:19
Dr_Willisdont go silly and use bs=1000000000000000000 or somthing07:19
RalphSpencerlol larger than the size of the disk07:19
Dr_Willisanything over  a specifc size is pointless.07:19

gheddy_zarchi Im trying to unzip a .gz file called Ubuntu.tgz.gz, I get an error saying; gzip: stdin: not in gzip format ,, any ideas07:20
ascheelvenport: so you have 2 drives.  sda and sdb.  sda is your 1 TB drive.07:20
Liquid-SilenceI am fed up with this vpn connection07:20
straycatwho votes i just put ubuntu as my only os07:20
Dr_Willisgheddy_zarc: using what command exactly?07:20
Dr_Willis!info unp | gheddy_zarc07:20
ubottugheddy_zarc: unp (source: unp): unpack (almost) everything with one command. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.0.15 (karmic), package size 10 kB, installed size 76 kB07:20
roccity_straycat: have you tried gunzip07:20
gheddy_zarcdouble clicking on it from nautilus Dr_Willis07:20
brandonban6I swapped out my mobo, but did not re-install Linux; Is there a repair scan or something I should do to tell linux about the hardware changes?07:20
straycatno clue i'm really familiar with 9.10 tho07:20
Dr_Willisgheddy_zarc:  tgz.gz is redundant.   try the command line unp command.. and perhaps rename it to just .tgz07:20
ascheelvenport: add a new line to your fstab:  /dev/sda1   /media/MediaV1 ext3 default 0 007:20
mneptokgheddy_zarc: what is the source of this file? what do you believe is in it?07:20
venportah that's the drive i need to add.07:20
gheddy_zarcok ta Dr_Willis07:21
roccity_straycat: try gunsip Ubuntu.tgz.gz07:21
gheddy_zarcmneptok its part of a suite to get a usb stick modem going07:21
venportthanks ascheel, i'll give that a try. (and sorry about the copy\paste issues)07:21
roccity_straycat: sorry gunzip07:21
straycatok i will give it a look07:21
straycatwill i be able to run just that or do i have to partition?07:22
ascheelif you want to unpack a .tgz file:  tar xvzf filename.tgz07:22
ascheelstraycat: are you trying to install 9.10?07:22
roccity_straycat: depends what your untarring it to?07:22
roccity_straycat: are you using windows07:23
straycatyea i'm trying to run just 9.10 and i have xp right now07:23
gheddy_zarcthat worked Dr_Willis I can open the archive now thanks07:23
ascheelstraycat: download the .iso file, burn it to CD, then boot to it07:23
roccity_straycat: if you are then the best thing is to use ubi if you want to keep windows07:23
ascheelstraycat: let's start from the top.  You're in Windows, you want Linux.  Do you want to keep Windows?07:23
jmp_hi to everybody07:24
straycati was just wanting to know if i'll be happy with just unbuntu07:24
straycati don't need windows for anything. i just don't know if people have had success just running 9.1007:24
jolarenstraycat; that's like asking the guy who makes your pizza what pizza is the best ;P07:24
ascheelstraycat: then do this for a test.  Download the .iso, burn the image to CD (deepburner from deepburner.com will do it, it's free) and you can load Ubuntu without affecting your current Windows installation, you can try it out before doing an install07:24
=== cheeky is now known as ^cheeky
ascheelstraycat: the install is done using the exact same CD07:24
roccity_straycat: if you want to do documents browsing and not pay atech to look at your computer everytime it gets some malware then yes07:24
venportascheel may i ask why /media and not /mnt? I know ubuntu addes all usb drives and cd\dvd to media, is that the reason?07:25
roccity_if you want games it's best to dual boot07:25
ascheelvenport: because it's a force of habit.  Mount it wherever you want.07:25
RalphSpencerDr_Willis, never thought its all that easy in linux .. in windows you sit with google looking for what you want in linux you just do it :)07:25
SupertankerHi; I just uploaded Ubuntu 9.10 to my computer after running Debian for a few years. Everything works perfect--kudos to all the volunteers!--except for sound. My Audgidy 2 refueses to make more than a few crackles and buzzes. Any ideas?07:25
ascheel!audigy | Supertanker07:25
straycatok one more question. if i have a 2gb laptop can i dual boot?07:25
venportascheel: oh ok. i was just trying to understand.07:25
jmp_do anybody know a channel for C++programming07:26
Supertankerascheel, was that supposed to get the bot to tell me something?07:27
ascheelSupertanker: it was supposed to haha.  Instead ubottu told me it didn't know anything about it07:27
straycati had one question if you could answer07:27
ascheelstraycat: 2gb drive or 2gb of RAM?07:27
venportit gave me an error when i did the mount -a... i've added my fstab just in case that is helpful...07:27
^cheekyhi, has anyone installed xbmc, with the aeon skin, ifso , did you guis, use the git-core close methoed or just unzip the aeon conytent to the xbmc-skins dir? sorry kinda confused,  ?07:28
Supertankerascheel, I think I found a post about it07:28
SupertankerThanks for your help though :)07:28
ascheelvenport: what did you format the drive with?07:28
ascheelvenport: what filesystem?07:28
ascheel^cheeky: please ask that question in #xbmc07:28
GabrielSOE_hey all, is it possible to update gnome environment without reinstalling ubuntu?07:28
ascheelGabrielSOE_: do you want to go from Kubuntu to Ubuntu or what?07:29
ascheelvenport: I gave you bad advice.  Change 'default' to 'defaults' in /etc/fstab07:30
GabrielSOE_ascheel: I don't understand, I mean when I have an earlier version of gnome can i update it without reinstalling the system?07:30
gheddy_zarcwhats t mean when Im in terminal do an "ls" in a folder and some items(.deb packages) come up in red ?07:30
ascheelGabrielSOE_: what version of Ubuntu are you on?07:31
SupertankerThere we go, fixed it ascheel. I used this: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/fix-for-no-sound-sound-blaster-audigy-after-upgrading-from-ubuntu-9-04-to-9-10.html07:31
SupertankerThanks much again :)07:31
ascheelhehe, I didn't do anything, but you're welcome.07:32
venportascheel, that seemed to work not to reboot and see if it holds. Thanks again.07:32
ascheelif you used mount -a, then you're good to go07:32
ascheelmount -a does the same thing as rebooting as far as mounted drives go07:32
venporti did. and it's hwoing up on a df that should be good enough? if so cool07:32
benjgvpsDoes anyone here use hotmail in Evolution? I've set it up according to the numorous guides out there, though it just gives me the error: Error while fetching mail07:32
ascheelyep, you got it venport.  :)  Congrats on your extra TB of storage.07:33
venportAnd leaving windows.07:34
ascheelnice.  :)  I recently dropped Windows from all 4 of my PCs as well.07:34
mybluevangheddy_zarc: apparently red - archive (or broken symbolic link)07:35
benjgvpsI am forced away from Windows on my netbook, having to use Ubuntu isn't my first choice, though I need this laptop working :)07:35
benjgvpsNow if only I could get my darned mail working07:35
venportI have one windows box left, and that's for my iTunes and audible accounts. but i plan to remote PC into them when needed. (that way i don;t have to reboot into a different OS)07:35
Dr_WillisGabrielSOE_:  Hmm.. You can update/upgrade using teh package manager.. so not sure what you mean07:35
ascheelvenport: screw iTunes.  mp3 all the way.07:35
ascheelvenport, another solution is to use VirtualBox and run windows in that!07:36
Dr_Willisbenjgvps:  i wouldent put it past hotmail to purposly break things so it cant work.07:36
venportYeah, but i have an iphone and more than a year left on the contract. I don't buy from their but need it for iphone updates07:36
ascheelvenport: touche.  I still recommend VirtualBox07:36
venportI'll take a look at it.07:37
venportI wish wine could run iTunes... but that will never happen07:37
eagles0513875hey guys im just wondering is dapper edgy and feisty still supported?07:37
ascheelHardy Heron is the Long Term Release version, eagles051387507:38
eagles0513875damn it07:38
ascheelwhy?  What's the problem?07:38
eagles0513875xen-tools is using outdated versions of ubuntu07:38
ascheelah, gotcha07:38
GabrielSOE_ascheel: ubuntu 9.1007:39
ascheelGabrielSOE_: what was that a response to?07:39
ascheelOh, gotcha.  I asked that awhile ago.07:40
GabrielSOE_ascheel: the version I'm running07:40
ascheelOk, so which version of Gnome are you on right now?07:40
GabrielSOE_ascheel: the version I'm running 9.1007:40
ascheelWhich version of gnome, not which version of Ubuntu07:40
jmp_do anybody know a channel for C++ programming07:41
sudiptacan i enable 3d desktop without compiz or beryl?07:41
GabrielSOE_ascheel: the version I'm running 2.28.107:41
ascheelGabrielSOE_: so you need to upgrade gnome?  To which version?  Or do you just need to reinstall?  What problem are you having?07:41
GabrielSOE_ascheel: Idon't really have a problem, I just want to know how do I install or reinstall Gnome or upgrade a version without reinstalling the system07:42
eagles0513875jmp_: there is a c++ channel here on freenode07:42
jmp_eagles0513875, which one07:43
jolarenhow do I ensure that nvpau is working correctly?07:43
eagles0513875jmp_: type /join c++07:44
eagles0513875unless your question is related to the language on ubuntu07:44
jmp_eagles0513875, ok07:44
ascheelGabrielSOE_: if you want to reinstall gnome, sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome   But why do you need to reinstall it?  You got settings problems?07:44
SupertankerI totally forgot; how can I specify more than two virtual desktups with Ubuntu?07:44
ascheelSupertanker: right-click the icon in the lower right corner and add more collumns or rows07:45
AchabI need help on apt-get crashed07:45
GabrielSOE_ascheel: not really just wanted to know how it's done. just incase07:45
Supertankerascheel, ah, thank you07:45
SupertankerSorry, I'm totally used to my old setup07:45
ascheelGabrielSOE_: reinstallations are rarely needed.  If you needed to reset the settings in your login, just delete the .gconf directory in your home directory.  Boom, factory setup.07:45
SupertankerI was using XFCE and could just mousewheel-scroll over the desktop to have it change between workspaces07:45
Dr_WillisSupertanker:  yea - i think that feature got removed from gnome some how07:46
greezmunkeyUbuntu is more fun than a barrel full of monkeys!07:46
ascheelSupertanker, I use Ctrl-Alt-MouseDrag or I think there are other hotkeys, but I don't remember what07:46
jmp_eagles0513875, I don't know how tell07:46
SupertankerDr_Willis, drat :/07:46
SupertankerWell, is there a keyboard shortcut?07:46
SupertankerOh, wait, here's the keyboard utility07:46
eagles0513875jmp_: ?07:46
jmp_eagles0513875, tell me where shall I enter join C++07:47
ascheeljmp_: /list07:47
eagles0513875jmp_: where u type to talk to me07:47
GabrielSOE_ascheel: Thanks m807:47
ShapeShifter499going to goi07:47
ascheelGabrielSOE_: you got it07:47
Dr_WillisSupertanker:  compiz has a feature where you just mouse over and it changes.. (a little too senesitive)07:47
GabrielSOE_ascheel: (:07:48
ruienIs a big tarball of all the files on a system partition a 'safe' way to make a backup of a drive? (The drive is mounted in readonly mode. I don't need the MBR). Theoretically could I later dump this into a raw partition, configure the bootloader, and everything would work OK?07:48
ascheelruien: a tarball is a really ghetto backup.  I recommend rsync07:48
Supertankerruien, I did that once. It worked. That's all I can really say.07:49
ruienascheel: i have used rsync.. but in this case how is it any different?07:49
SupertankerI <3 Rsync07:49
ascheelrsync ensures file integrity.  tarball does not07:49
ascheelIf you don't mind if a file goes corrupt, tarball away07:49
GabrielSOE_ascheel: great help. may ask another question?07:49
jmp_eagles0513875,  C++ no such channel07:50
ascheelchances of corruption?  low.  Chances of corruption with rsync?  nonexistent unless by an external source07:50
ascheelGabrielSOE_: ask away07:50
eagles0513875jmad980: yes there is07:50
ruienoh right good point. But the theory is OK -- copy all of the files on a RO partition and that should be good enough. I don't NEED an "image-based backup". Right?07:50
eagles0513875whoops wrong person07:50
eagles0513875i mean jmp_ there is07:50
eagles0513875i was just in there07:50
ascheelcorrupt, ruien.  YMMV07:50
eagles0513875jmp_: is your nick registered07:50
ascheeloops, I meant correct.  not corrupt.07:50
jmp_eagles0513875, yes07:51
ruienright, ok. Thanks guys07:51
eagles0513875jmp_: are you identified07:51
GabrielSOE_what is the equivalent of "Active Directory" in Linux?  and is there any?07:51

ubottustrayhyena: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines . Enjoy your stay!07:53
jmp_eagles0513875, I got it thanks07:53
eagles0513875no problem jmp_07:53
ruienascheel: wait... so how do I make a tarball with rsync? ultimately i do want a single compressed file, utilizing rsync's data verification along the way?07:54
GabrielSOE_ascheel: great thanks, I'm off reading (:07:54
strayhyenaIs it possible to do a batch unrar with the command line? i'm wanting to have all files in the subdirectories of the current directory to be unrared07:54
ascheelruien: rsync doesn't make a tarball.  It copies the files individually, every single block being compared against checksums ensuring integrity07:54
ascheelstrayhyena: find . -iname "*.rar" -exec unrar x {} \;07:55
ascheelgood luck, GabrielSOE_07:55
ruienascheel: right, so i move all the files over to another directory, but i can't verify that the directory tars up without any error.. so doesn't that defeat the purpose?07:55
ascheelruien: rsync doesn't tar07:55
Dr_Willisthers also that 'fsarchiver' tool that can copy/backup/verify, but its not in the repos (yet) thers a a PPA for it07:56
ascheelruien: it copies.  It makes exact copies of one directory to a location of your choice.  the beauty of it is you can rsync over a network, even over an ssh connection maintaining security during the transfer07:56
strayhyenaascheel: wow, thank you very much!07:56
ascheelstrayhyena: you're welcome, good sir.  I recommend reading up on the find command07:56
greezmunkeyDr_Willis, PPA ??07:56
Quan-Timegreezmunkey: PPA is just a "repository link" of sorts07:57
eagles0513875has anyone gotten ubuntu working with xen07:57
ruienascheel: i know. rsync copies the files to another hard drive. but in the process of making that ultimate tarball out of the verified files, i still run the same risk of file corruption.. right?07:57
eagles0513875as a xen guest07:57
greezmunkeyDr_Willis, Got it, are you following the rsync thread here?07:57
ascheelruien: that's why you don't tarball them.07:57
ascheelruien: is there a need to tarball them?07:57
tucemiuxanyone knows of an app that will convert mov to wmv?07:58
ascheeltarballs aren't backups.  They're used for file dissemination07:58
ruienascheel: well, yes.. i want it compressed. that's the point.07:58
ascheelk, then use a tarball.  *shrug*07:58
Dr_Willisgreezmunkey:  barely :) i just copy to usb hd.. i rarely do image/system type backups.restores i just do reinstalls and move configs back07:58
greezmunkeyRE: rsync, Is it possible to store Windows files onto a Ubuntu server via rsync?07:58
strayhyenaascheel: i've tried using find often but the amount of options is a little overwhelming, i should start sending the help output to a file and read it with gedit07:58
ascheelgreezmunkey: yes there are windows executables07:58
ruienascheel: thanks for the info though; appreciated.07:59

greezmunkeyascheel, I'll check into it, thanks :)07:59
ascheelruien: My advice is if you want a reliable backup, don't use tarballs if you're talking about gigs and gigs of data.07:59

tucemiuxTopGear, you mean you boot up your machine and it takes 30 seconds for you to see the grub menu where you can choose what OS to boot up into?08:31

xiongI have just bought a Hawking HWUN3 WiFi USB Adapter. I have read the docs for installing the Win driver using ndiswrapper; they seem extremely fearsome, with result uncertain. I'm concerned that somehow I will get it wrong and not be able to get back to the internal wifi. For that matter, since the external adapter is not usually needed, I'd like to be able to switch back and forth -- if not conveniently, then not without recompi08:51
xiongling my kernel. What's up with this?08:51
xiongBTW, I'm open to the suggestion "Take the Hawking back to the store and buy X instead." I don't like that but I'll listen.08:52

tucemiuxbashca, at the end of the error it should give you directions on what to do next09:00
xiongmneptok, It does; it has two, in fact. I considered a card solution. The issue with that is that the slot is on the right side, conflicting physically with the external trackball. Not a total deal-killer but an annoyance. I have USB ports left, right, and rear.09:00
bashcatucemiux: nothing09:00

xiongmneptok, I don't doubt that any external solution *may* be superior to my current internal setup. I don't think, on the RF end, I'm going to be unhappy with the Hawking USB. This is a driver issue.09:02

gabriel_Callum_: I was going to try that nvpau option... then i read that 8800 doesn't support it...09:20
Callum_gabirel_: AFAIK the 8800GT DOES support VDPAU, not sure though. Let me check09:20
xiongmneptok, I've had my look. I'd say it's almost certainly an internal wifi adapter behind that door. It's a C-Com; I'll run the numbers I got off it.09:20
gabriel_Callum_: as i said i have 8800GT09:20
Callum_gabriel_: Yes, the 8800GT does support VDPAU09:21
Callum_The only other 8800 that supports it is the 8800GS09:21
mneptokxiong: so it's an internal PCI-E mini card, as best as you can tell?09:21
gabriel_oh ok... so i just need to use mplayer with the vdpau flag then? i have nvidia 185 drivers09:21
Callum_Does anyone know if the MPlayer on Ubuntu repos has VDPAU support compiled in?09:22
xiongmneptok, I'm just about certain. Looks right. Has two thin cables going to it; I assume one is power/data and the other coax to the internal antenna. Perhaps there's a third cable out of sight; I didn't remove it.09:23
mneptokxiong: no, those are both antenna. the data and power are handled by the copper leads via the PCI bus09:23
resjudicatahow do I get pdf files to open with evince instead of adobe acrobat without removing the later?09:23
mneptokxiong: last question. is it full-length like the image i showed you, or half-height?09:23
xiongmneptok, Dunno about the bus. It is secured by screws and standoffs; it doesn't seem to slot in to anything.09:24
Callum_gabriel_: yes, try the MPlayer on Ubuntu's repositories first...you will have to install a GUI frontend for MPlayer (like SMPlayer or gnome-mplayer) if you want to use it with a GUI though09:24
mneptokxiong: it's in a slot09:24

xiongmneptok, I'm not going to save $10 to compromise quality.09:27

ruienginbuntu: i am pretty sure dd only writes as long as imagefile and won't touch the rest of the data on /dev/sda1, but i'm not certain.09:28
mneptokxiong: it's still Intel, and instead of having 3 antenna leads that newer laptops use, it's got just the 2 you'll need.09:28
xiongmneptok, Forgive me for arguing from ignorance but I find it hard to believe that chipset is going to make a BIG difference vs changing antenna.09:28
mneptokxiong: the chipset has a driver. Intel provides excellent drivers directly to the Linux kernel. you can have a 40,000 foot tall antenna, and with a lousy driver, get lousy reception.09:29
mneptokxiong: just ensure that Amazon vendor has a good return policy. test it out. it should provide far, far better reception. and if so, you have an internal solution that will work while on the road.09:30
xiongmneptok, You make a potent argument.09:31
mneptokxiong: alternatively, you could get a better +Db antenna for the AP09:31
candyhow to extract uif file?09:31
xiongmneptok, Not too sure how I'd change from an internal antenna with an internal card to an external antenna with the internal card. Messy.09:32
xiongmneptok, I figure the internal antenna is built in, probably into the lid or sth.09:32

ubottuTo view your Windows/Mac partitions see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AutomaticallyMountPartitions - For write access, see !NTFS-3g or !FUSE09:33
xiongmneptok, Ah. I have no control over the AP. It's public wifi.09:33
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot09:34
Dr_Willismiha:  ntfs-utils i think09:34
Dr_Willismiha:  but i would suggest checking ntfs under windows09:35
mneptokxiong: so order the Intel 5100, ensuring you can return it if not satisfied. hopefully, it works. if not, you can move on to finding a USB dongle that might work.09:35

Dr_Willis!find libxvid09:36
ubottuFound: libxvidcore4, libxvidcore4-dev09:36
Dr_Willischipgeri:  perhaps install the libxvidcore4 package09:37
xiongmneptok, I think you have given me an excellent solution, albeit it's Plan B: Discard Hawking hardware, buy *this* instead. I hope the driver install on it will not be Terrible. The issue may be less of installing the Intel driver and more of getting the C-Com driver out.09:37
henkpoleySay I screw a harddisk with EXT3 in my PC, and have ubuntu on another. What is the GUI way to have that EXT3 disk mounted at boot? (so I don't need to enter a password)09:37
Dr_Willishenkpoley:  put a proper entry in the /etc/fstab and mount it where you want09:37

henkpoleyDr_Willis: I hadn't done it in 2 years or so, but just want to know there's a newbie version09:39
xiongmneptok, In any case, thank you! I'm going to move on for now. It's cheap enough to try and see before I say, "That can't work." Thanks again.09:39

xpo0fany idea what is linux-next patch ??10:15
SirRedToothBecause most people use windows, so people write viruses for windows.10:16
SirRedToothAnd most people using linux are familiar with a computer which makes it hard for them to get infected.10:16
xpo0fSirRedTooth: maybe lack of security, more user friendly10:16
xpo0fi love ubuntu so much .. although karmic really pain10:17
Dr_WillisThe russian mafia pays people to write virusew for windows, :)10:17
SirRedToothI suppose. It might take a while to get used to it though.10:17
royrussell2 sets down one game down in the 3rd10:17
BinaryManddm: no hable espanol, hable ingles10:17
Dr_WillisYou learn about computers by using Linux.. with windows.. you learn about scanning for viruses and defragging all day long10:17
BinaryManit's not even that.10:18
BinaryManwith linux, you have far more control over your system.10:18
xpo0flinux and ubuntu is about community10:18
BinaryManfor example10:18
BinaryManyou plug in an mp3 player10:18
BinaryManhit dmesg10:18
BinaryManand you've got all sorts of useful information.10:18
BinaryManyou plug in an mp3 player while running windows, and plug and play goes off.10:18
xpo0fBinaryMan: thats the thing that kernel detect actually10:19
BinaryManand screams at you if it doesn't work.10:19
Dr_WillisI got a mixxed network of windows and linxu machines.. with samba shares on all of them. I cant 'see' the shares/mechines for some machines with nautilus, or windows. unless i enter the ip# of the server in question. then it works..  Whats causing this. oddity.10:19
SirRedToothIm guessing in around 4 months time I will be able to run ubuntu as easily as I used to run liux10:19
BinaryManDr_Willis: make sure the dns names are being resolved.10:19

Dr_Willisim having the issue btween 2 windows machines also.10:20
Dr_Willisnot just linux to win or win to lin.10:20
SirRedToothThe last step of installing autokey is sudo dpkg -i <buildpackagename>, what does it mean by buildpackage name?10:20
BinaryManddm: por favor hable ingles10:20
ddmagradeceria que alguien me orientara de algún chat en castellano que traten sobre ubuntu10:21
Dr_WillisShould i set up one linux box to be a wins server and the others to be a wins client? or is the wins client setting even needed?10:21

SirRedToothThe last step of installing autokey is sudo dpkg -i <buildpackagename>, what does it mean by buildpackagename?10:22
BinaryManSirRedTooth: the name of the package10:22
xpo0fSirRedTooth: and checkinstall will create .deb file10:22
BinaryMansorry about that. guy didn't know english10:22
BinaryMankept telling him none of us know spanish and he had to speak english10:23
Callum_BinaryMan: you can redirect him to a Spanish #ubuntu channel10:23
gabriel_Callum_: i installed mplayer again using the ubuntu software center.. however, it doesn't seems to have overwritten my compiled version of mplayer? I thought it would do it?10:23
SirRedToothWhere do I find the name of the package? Something gives me a feeling this is a stupid question...10:24
BinaryManDr_Willis: i have three machines on my network, two are running linux and one is running windows. haven't had any problems with samba.10:24
Callum_gabriel_: you can install MPlayer to different places =) which is probably what has happened here10:24
BinaryManhad to play with it a little bit to get it working, but now it works fine.10:24
BinaryManCallum_: didn't know there was one. what's the channel?10:24
Callum_gabriel_: you can uninstall the compiled MPlayer by going to the source code folder where it was compiled and typing 'sudo make uninstall'10:25
Callum_isn't it something like #ubuntu-es or something?10:25
Dr_WillisBinaryMan:  yea i even have oddities with just the 2 windows box's here.  Im wondering if my router is doing some security stuff. but i cant find any. and that dont explain why the ip's work. but not the names10:25
SirRedToothI just downloaded a application, how to i find <buildpackagename> so I can run the install?10:25
gabriel_so are BOTH versions on my path now? And it just executes the first entry on the path?10:25
BinaryManup, that's it.10:26

Dr_WillisBinaryMan:  rereading chapter 7 of 'using samba -> http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/using_samba/ch07.html10:26
Callum_gabriel_: Yes, you will want to remove the compiled one by going to the source code folder where it was compiled and typing 'sudo make uninstall'10:26
gabriel_where is the latest installed one, if i want to try it first before uninstalling my own?10:26
Dr_WillisBinaryMan:  :) i really do RTFM10:26
BinaryManDr_Willis: I would check the hosts files first.10:26
SirRedToothIs there a tutorial for all this10:26
gabriel_Callum_: before that i would like to see if the repo version works better...10:27
BinaryManthat was my problem with name resolving.10:27

Dr_WillisBinaryMan:  hosts file on a linxu box wouldent be affecting the 2 windows machines would it?  i was just wondering what if the wins server has a messed up hosts file10:29
xpo0fDr_Willis: you can also put in your /etc/hosts file10:29
gabriel_Callum_: aha, i have smplayer installed. i can try it i guess.. but how can i see if it's actually using vdpau? should i start smplayer from commandline?10:29

Callum_gabriel_: you do have the repo MPlayer and SMPlayer installed and the compiled one UNINSTALLED, right? =)10:36
SirRedToothI will understand apt-cache first.10:36

gabriel_Callum_: well i haven't managed to uninstalled the compiled one yet :D10:37

ubottucandy: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)11:09

maffelinuxIf I modify my .bashrc file, do I have to restart my terminal in order to get effects, or can I just run it like 'sh .bashrc' and the changes will come into effect?11:22
gabriel_Callum_: what manu is that in?11:22
Callum_gabriel_: You will have to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and then log out and log back in11:23
Dr_Willismaffelinux:  use 'source .bashrc' or '. .bashrc'11:23
Dr_Willismaffelinux:  note the space?11:23
gabriel_Callum_: so then i can never use compiz? I must manually change the file back if i want compiz back?? :(11:23
maffelinuxah, yes11:23
Dr_Willis . = source command.11:23
Callum_gabriel_: Yes11:23
Dr_Willismaffelinux:  and think about why 'sh .bashrc' wont do anything. :) bash homework11:24
gabriel_Callum_: isn't there a way to still have compiz active? :(11:24
gabriel_Callum_: please? ;)11:24
Callum_gabriel_: It's the easiest way to get rid of the tearing11:24
Dr_Willismaffelinux:  sh reads/runs the script then exits.. all changes/settings then are discarded back when it goes to the parent shell11:24
SirRedToothWhere do files do when you have installed them?11:24
Dr_Willismaffelinux:  plus sh is not the same as 'bash'  in many cases11:24
gabriel_Callum_: well i can't live without compiz... is there a way to keep compiz but still get rid of tearing?11:25
Callum_gabriel_: Not that I know of11:25
SirRedToothLike what is the equivalent of programme files in ubuntu11:25
icerootSirRedTooth: in different directorys, depending on the program11:25
icerootSirRedTooth: there is no single directory as in windows11:25
Guest94903gabriel_: on simillar hardware i didn't notice any tearing <:11:25
Dr_Willisiceroot:  theres really not a 'single directroy' in windows either11:25
=== Guest94903 is now known as DaZ
icerootDr_Willis: but you know what i mean11:26
SirRedToothOkay because i just installed something and it has no shortcuts11:26
SirRedToothAnd i dont know how to run it11:26
icerootSirRedTooth: what program?11:26
Dr_Willisiceroot:  dont even get me started on the weirdness OS-X does :)11:26
RichiHis there any cli download manager with a queue, start/stop/resume, parallel downloads and maybe even downloading files in parallel chunks?11:26
icerootDr_Willis: if i am correct mac osx is hiding /etc and so on11:26
SirRedToothautokey, managed to find it in the software center because i couldnt install it manually11:26
kickbWhen you login through the console or ssh you get some information from the package system; how many packages than can be updated. Which tool collects this information and where is it stored?11:26
Dr_Willisiceroot:  it gets much weirder then that..11:26
icerootDr_Willis: only to directorys? /foo and /home or something like that?11:27
SirRedToothI could run autohotkey using wine.11:27
Callum_kickb: That tool would be apt-get and its stored as metadata in the APT cache...11:27
SirRedToothAutohotkey takes like 2 seconds to set up11:27
Dr_Willisiceroot:  os-x can shomehow make the filenames case inseneitive for the gui but the underlaying OS is still case senesitive. :) thats a neat trick. and  somehow it can make directories of files appear as a single file/executable.11:28
icerootSirRedTooth: what if you type autokey in the terminal?11:28
SirRedToothOh it worked :)11:28
icerootDr_Willis: .... that sounds very very buggy with the case sensetive11:28

iceroot!alias | SirRedTooth11:29
icerootSirRedTooth: man alias11:29
Dr_WillisSirRedTooth:  depends on what you mwean by shortcut11:29
SirRedToothSo instead of openeing the terminal and typing autokey11:30
Callum_Alright, I can't take this stomach pain any more, I need some sleep...11:30
SirRedToothi just click on a shortcut11:30
gabriel_Guest94903 well are you using compiz at the same time?11:30
icerootSirRedTooth: ah ok, create a launcher in the gnome-panel and type in the command11:30
Dr_WillisSirRedTooth:  you mean make a 'launcher' :) windows uses shortcuts11:30

Dragon_Legionanyone know how to remount a read-only vfat USB and make it writeable again?11:31
Dr_Willisor add it to your autostart stuff :)11:31
gabriel_Callum_: if i disable compiz there is no tearing whatsoever. And i can use compiz fusion icon to switch between metacity and compiz, so it's not THAT bad... when i want to watch an hd movie i have to switch to avoid tearing, but at least it's just two clicks of the mouse...11:32
SirRedToothDone :) thanks11:32
Dr_Willisgabriel_:  some media players may have some video settings to reduce the issue.11:32
gabriel_Dr_Willis: really? you mean while still using compiz? Well i'm using smplayer, which is new to me, so i don't know... looked around a bit but didn't find anything11:33
