tannerwhat is the application name for the 'Disk Utility' in 9.10?00:02
JayCooltanner,  what do you need to do with your disk ?00:02
airtonixtanner, you can find out for yourself by editing the menu00:02
tanneri want to launch the application00:02
tannerairtonix: that seems a bit excessive just to get the name of the application00:03
mazda01_tanner, palimpsest00:03
M1DLGpcI am having trouble understanding how to get grub fixed, after reinstalling XP in first partition, i've tried the wiki howto, but i just dont understand00:03
tannerthank you mazda01_00:03
airtonixtanner, regardless its something you can do for yourself00:03
arandM1DLGpc: So have you mounted the ubuntu drive?00:03
tannerairtonix: that's a shitty solution to provide in a channel dedicated to a distro that is meant to be user friendly00:03
mazda01_tanner, as long as you understand you can find out the command for any application by editng the main menu00:03
mazda01_when i issue lshw, it says my eth1 is disabled. anyone tell me why00:03
airtonixtanner, and i disagree that it is excessive... terraforming a planet is exessive... editing a menu is trivial00:04
JayCoolhey guys be nice00:04
M1DLGpcarand, i have no idia whats mounted and whats not00:04
tannerairtonix: yeah, that attitude will really take Ubuntu far.00:04
airtonixtanner, your point is ?00:04
=== urlsupper is now known as url
M1DLGpcsounds like theres either trolling or baiting here00:05

JayCoolnah they are both good people , they just disagree00:05
marcociao00:06
arandM1DLGpc: First, start a terminal..00:06
airtonixhiexpo, more info here : http://t0x.in/xchattextevents.html00:07
M1DLGpcarand, started00:07
arandM1DLGpc: you are on a liveCD now right?00:07
M1DLGpcon that machine00:07
M1DLGpcI'll have to copy everything over00:07
arandM1DLGpc: Ok, now run "sudo fdisk -l" which will list all the partitions on there, one of them should be "ext" filesystem which would be the ubuntu partition.00:08
arandM1DLGpc: Note which one that is, name is normally sda# (# being a number)00:09
M1DLGpci think sda500:09
_TristanI have this problem: http://i45.tinypic.com/2hqar2r.png (my controls are broken) tell me how to fix it and I'll give you $3000:10
arandM1DLGpc: ok, then you create a directory "sudo mkdir /media/tmpdir"...00:11
hiexpoairtonix, - ok i went there and there was a code there but what do i do to change the color?00:11
tahow can I move the menu bars from one monitor to the other in extended desktop? I have the menu bar on the right monitor, but I want to move it to the monitor on left00:11
M1DLGpcarand, I have 2 i think it might be sda2 and sda5 sda2 is w95 ext'd (LBA) and the other just is linux00:11
JayCoolclick on it00:11
M1DLGpcdone00:12
JayCoolM1DLGpc,  you can fire up gprated to see this in a gui00:12
M1DLGpcok00:12
JayCool*gparted00:12
arandM1DLGpc: And then mount this partition to that directory "sudo mount /dev/sda# /media/tmpdir" (# again being the number of the ubu partition)00:13
ZykoticK9mupen64plus (cli version from google repository, gui in Ubuntu repo currently broken), A & B buttons backwards on my N64 controller -- a week-or-so ago asked in the channel if anyone knew how to swap them and was directed to ~/.config/mupen64plus where i eventually found mupen64plus.cfg (different config file from GUI version), and was able to simply change Button A to 5 and Button B to 4 (or vice-versa) and my problem was fixed!  Reinstalled MythBuntu a00:14
ZykoticK9nd now the cfg doesn't have anything to change under input (it's blank for all 4 controllers) - i tried installing the GUI version to see if that made any difference (it of course does not) --- SO my question is: does anyone have a mupen64plus.cfg file configured for an N64 controller what would be willing to share there SDL input section with me?00:14
M1DLGpcgparted errors with cant have overlaping partitons00:14
arandM1DLGpc: hmm, that might be a sign of some other problem...00:15
_Tristanhttp://i45.tinypic.com/2hqar2r.png fix this problem and I'll give you $30.00:15
M1DLGpcok00:15
JayCoolM1DLGpc,  you didn't change anything right? it just said that on start up?00:15
M1DLGpcyes00:15
M1DLGpcno changes00:16
M1DLGpcI can use gparted, grub however (at least the following of the wiki) has me confused00:16
mrpinkyi created an "install" target in the makefile for my library, which just cp's the library to /usr/lib and chmod 755, and cp's the header to /usr/include and chmod 755. is there a "proper" way to create an "install" target in the makefile for my library?00:16
M1DLGpcarand, I have that ok00:16
Stormx2_Tristan: sudo rm /root/.themes && sudo ln -s /home/yourusername/.themes /root/.themes00:16
Stormx2_Tristan, sudo rm -rf /root/.themes && sudo ln -s /home/yourusername/.themes /root/.themes <-- sorry, try this00:17
arandM1DLGpc: It may be that the partition table is incorrect, in which case just reinstalling grub might not solve everything, we could try though..00:17
Jinxwaredoes anyone have an elantech touchpad that is incorrectly detected as a usb mouse?00:17
hiexpohmmm00:17
M1DLGpcplease00:17
_TristanStormx2: did not do it00:18
Stormx2_Tristan: Try logging out and in.00:18
_TristanStormx2: tried that too00:18
Stormx2Just now?00:18
M1DLGpci'll run spinrite when I reboot after the fix assuming we get the fix00:18
_TristanI tried those two things in order many times before00:18
JayCool_Tristan,  this is an issue with the theme engine i don't think that will work , it's broken and cant find the engine :(00:19
arandM1DLGpc: ok, after mounting it, run the command "sudo grub-install --root-directory=/media/tmpdir /dev/sda#" (# again...) which will reinstall grub.00:19
M1DLGpcarand, instaling xp has a nasty effect on any hdd.....00:19
_TristanJayCool: I have a live CD and everything works fine on that... can't I just copy over the right files?00:20
arandM1DLGpc: hm, in theory, it shouldn't...00:20
hiexpook figured it out thanks00:20
M1DLGpc--root is unreconised00:21
SaEeDhi everyone, my Display in ubuntu is corrupted and everything is now over sized, and when i try to resize the display resolution it doesnt event detect my default one which is "1280x1024"00:21
SaEeDhow do u think i can fix it ? :(00:21
hiexpomuch better00:21
TrekSaEeD: sounds like an issue with your system, you tried running off a LiveCD to see if it works?00:21
SaEeDi tried the " dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" but no luck00:21
JayCool_Tristan, you can try copying the /usr/share/themes/ Murina Over to your HD from the CD00:21
SaEeDwell, windows works fine without anyproblem00:22

looterhow do i open my website files in /var/www through GUI without having to use sudo through command line?00:22
lacitaI am setting up a 5TB+ partititon with a gpt partition table. The drive is comprised of 4x2TB in RAID5. To boot from this drive, I must have 2 boot partitionsa: a Dell Utility Partition (94.1Mb), and a FAT32 partition (2.01Gb) at the beginning of the drive. The placement of the Dell Utility partition is from sector 63 to 192779, The placement of the FAT32 partition should be from sector 192780 to 4401809. This is easy to set up using fdisk, however, there00:22
lacitais no gpt support in fdisk. I am trying to use parted, but cannot figure out how to define a partition by sector. Any ideas?00:22
timothy_u can try to purge the package00:23
arandM1DLGpc: If the error message is "Unrecognized option `--root'" then make sure it has no spaces after root.00:23

AlexJTannerI don't have any properitary graphic cards00:29
paissadmates, i need an advice, a big one, .. actually i mistaken during a files copying to a dir ... but fortunately,  i have a backup of that directories (4 dirs) .... how must i use rsync to delete the directory & replace it by the backup .. a sort of downgrade00:29
AlexJTannerit's an onboard video card00:30
JayCoolSaEeD,  Press alt+f2 type "Terminal"  then run sudo nvidia-settings00:30
M1DLGpcarand, yes00:30
paissadi could use rm -rf dir1 dir2 dir3 and so on, .... but i expect rsync to just replace contents of that dirs00:30
paissadis it possible ?00:30
graniteliek hai00:30
JayCoolSaEeD,  you should see a nvida window you can now pick and apply and resolution00:30
SaEeDJayCool: yeah , the application setting is there , but it doesnt recognize my monitor00:31
ZykoticK9JayCool, SaEeD you should always use "gksu GUI_program" and not just sudo - it is important00:31
SaEeDJayCool: i tired that , but didnt work00:31
ardchoillepaissad: look into the --delete option to rsync00:31
xim_is the swap mount supposed to be shown when i type df -h? because i have a large swap partition that may not be getting used. I dont see it here00:31
_TristanJayCool: found an error message in ~/.xsession-errors:  Unable to locate theme engine in module_path00:31
arandM1DLGpc: Hmm, don't know what's wrong then, sure you havent misstyped the grub-install command, test adding a / at the end of tmpdir...00:31
paissadardchoille, that option deletes from the source or the destination ?00:31
M1DLGpcok00:32
meganerdxim_: swapon -s00:32
ardchoillepaissad: deletes from the destination, but read the man page anyway, several good options there00:32

meganerdxim_: swap will not show in df00:32
xim_cool i see this now00:32
xim_thanks00:32
M1DLGpcthanks arand, i'll give it a miss for now, I'll try again tomorrow but earlier in the evening00:33
ardchoillepaissad: And make sure your rsync command is correct00:33
M1DLGpcthanks for the time arand00:33
meganerdxim_: htop is pretty good at showing mem usage (and swap), as is the GUI you get when you dbl-click the CPU graph applet00:33
paissadardchoille, i saw that option --delete, but i just wondered if i would delete knowing that the files in the destination dir are more recent00:33
JayCool_Tristan,  This is what i was afraid of , maybe re install GTK libs so it relinks to the engine?00:33
xim_meganerd, ah ya, i love htop, didnt think to use it00:33
arandM1DLGpc: No problem, sorry it wasn't fixed, I'm kind of scratching my head as to why...00:33
mkanyicyxim_, use 'free -m' to see the memory usage ans swap usage00:33
_TristanJayCool: what packages specifically? (I've reinstalled half the OS it seems)00:33
paissadardchoille, rsycn -av --delete source_dir dest_dir00:33
ardchoillepaissad: I use that option all the time, it works fine but make sure your rsync command is correct00:33

blakkheimdon't buy from ati - enemy of your freedom00:54
mkanyicySaEeD, you can go to single user mode by 'sudo init 1'00:54
JayCool_Tristan,  you can open Synaptic and type Murina and right click on the package select properties and look for "File List" or somthin00:54
coz_MFen,  so anything change?00:54
meganerdblakkheim: they have done better than nvidia as of late00:54
mkanyicyblakkheim, that is not true00:54
rwwblakkheim: ATI has free drivers that work fine.00:54
blakkheimlol00:54
functionofxyblakkheim, i understand your opposition, but I need to install them nonetheless00:54

JayCool_Tristan,  you can open Synaptic and type Murina and right click on the package select properties and look for "File List"00:56

linxehJayCool: or pidgin00:57
MrApple hey, is there anyone down for trying to gain root status on a linux based kernal?00:57

coz_MFen,  ok  go to system/administration/hardware drivers00:57
mkanyicyi cannot install pidgin JayCool00:57
proton23JayCool: Thats why I ask00:57

proton23maybe its not a empathy problem00:57
dorkfaceHi all.  Is there a way to keep track of friends in steam (notifications of when they log in and log off) in ubuntu without actually installing steam?  I've already tried to install steam, but so far have not had any sucess.00:58
functionofxyI was under the impression that the fglrx 10.1 from ati is the top of the line00:58
MFencoz_: yes, it's enabled00:58
coz_MFen,   and  in terminal   run compiz &  and pastebin the out put00:58
functionofxymeganerd, especially for a dual-head 1080 setup00:58
mkanyicydorkface, i'ven't heard of ghost-steam00:58
meganerdfunctionofxy: other way around, radeonhd is the new driver that ATI hired Novel to write, full 3d support on HD devices.  It does not however work for older cards, only the new ones00:59
meganerdfunctionofxy: I cannot speak to dual head support, I only do that with Intel based devices these days00:59
functionofxymeganerd, fantastic! thanks for the advice. i'll be back in a few minutes to let you know how it goes00:59
JayCoolmkanyicy,  you need to enable community repos to get pidgin installed, find sources i preferences and enable all but source01:00

phong_my qestion is is it neccessary for /  and /home?01:49
ZerNo, you can make them the same partition if you want01:49
phong_ok let say i have a hd of 100GB    i manually partitiion is to be   2GB for Swap Area.......  next what should i do?01:49
ZerMake the rest of it /01:50
phong_oh01:50

FloodBot2Zer: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.01:50
Zerone thing that might be nice, create the / as a LVM partition, leave about 4GB free01:50
phong_why some website teach me to do  it  with  /  and then another partition with /home01:50
ZerThat way you can do a snapshot in case you break something accidentally01:51
_Tristanit\ns simple\n really\n01:51
Zerphong_: If you want to make them separate you can. It doesn't matter01:51
Seeker`phong_: watch your language pelase01:51
ezrafreephong_: many people prefer to make /home on it's own partition so it doesn't fill up the hard drive and cause the system to slow down01:51
phong_ezrafree is that the advantage ?01:51
Zerezrafree: Since when did hard drives get appreciably slower when they were full? :)01:51
ezrafreephong_: as far as i know that's why some folks recommend it, yes01:51
Hustonhey is there a way to boost my wireless adapter range? i know i can do it in windows, but never tried to do it in ubuntu01:52
ogenthis is an ubuntu support channel. Amazing. I was only going to chat with my friends. I am MEGA disappointed with Ubuntu. RIGHT NOW >> I cant play dvd's. 1. I installed non-free from the documentation page. 2. I installed VLC 3. I followed the directions (lots of functions, hundreds?) as recommended by the Old Grey Wolf on Ubuntuforums. --- PARDON ME. NOW IT PLAYS. (In VLC)01:52
arghh2d2Zer: since / needs to write cache and logs01:52
ezrafreeZer: i meant the users who have access to /home (who may not be admins) could fill up hdd space the admins prefer to use for the system01:52
ezrafreearghh2d2: heh, exactly, that too01:52
phong_how come when i go to my computer  i only see FileSystem ?01:52
phong_only 1 HD01:52
speedxxxcoreHuston: you can build a cantenna01:52
ogenoops now mplayer wont close. I need to do something about this.01:52
Zerarghh2d2: If it's partitions, they're on the same HD either way, so whether it's logging or not it's the same thing01:52
arghh2d2if your / get's full it will fail01:53
phong_i thought i made it  2GB swap and /home01:53
Zerezrafree: That's true01:53
phong_i only see Filesystem01:53
ezrafreeZer: yes but only the partition they have access to can they fill up01:53
hero1900hi guys any way to open and edit visio files?01:53
ZerYeah, if you have some other user who'll fill up your hard drive it might be useful01:53
ezrafreethe partition for / they won't have write access to so they cannot fill up, saving that filespace for log files and system files01:53
Hustonspeedxxxcore: cantenna?01:53
arghh2d2Zer: if your /home partition filles up but your / partition still has a gig to play with you'r good...its not rocket science01:53
ogenre cantenna, umm, you can use the ancient Asian Cooking Utensil school of antenna amplification. I've used a big metal bowl (details at 11) and it worked well.01:53
phong_answer please:   why i only see  Filesystem,  why not  my other partition?01:53

ezrafreephong_: try browsing or cd'ing to the /home directory01:54
phong_that's not partition01:54
ezrafreephong_: then it is in fact there01:54
crdlbphong_: swap is used as memory, and Computer doesn't show partions separately afaik01:54

esspiroHi all, in hopes of getting 3D acceleration working on my GMA950 MacBook, I followed a forum post and created an xorg.conf file containing "DefaultDepth 16". Now when I boot, graphics are all over the place and I can't read anything. I have auto-login enabled; how can I get myself a terminal to delete the file?02:40
dragonezrafree: Linux is nowhere like Windows or MacOS.02:41
ezrafreethe term "linux" is often used to refer to "gnu/linux" so let's not get too technical on the semantics folks :)02:41

iKayi will take a look at that ezrafree, iirc though dmesg doesn't have any clues02:42
SectorX4iKay You can boot from a 9.10 CD and run memory check02:42

iKaythe server is in a datacenter. so i can't do more than ssh02:42

phong_those that provided by ubuntu is sux02:43
ezrafreephong_: there are many themes, which window manager are you running? gnome? compiz?02:44
ardchoillephong_: most themes at www.gnome-look.org will work fine02:44
NooneshereHow do you make a theme?02:44

phong_i have 2 GTX 285 SLi02:45
ezrafreephong_: then as mentioned the themes are gnome-look.org should work, as well as try installing Emerald02:45
toastedmilkfunctionofxy, it depends on what graphical programs you're using02:45
ardchoilleNooneshere:  http://live.gnome.org/GnomeArt/Tutorials02:45
sje46do you only have to wipe a file once for it to be unrecoverable?02:45
mkanyicyphong_, Nooneshere , check themes at gnome-look.org02:45
toastedmilkfunctionofxy, some programs support fglrx, some support the open source radeon driver02:45
NooneshereArdchiolle thank you very much.02:45
blakkheimsje46: dban the drive02:45
ezrafreesje46: no i believe 7 times is the least until it's unrecoverable02:45
DimoutlookAre there any problems running Img-Burn in wine02:45
mezquitaleanyone knows of an sftp client for windows mobile?02:46
toastedmilkfunctionofxy, my radeon is on the legacy list, so ati won't be supporting it.  therefore I use the radeon driver02:46
ardchoilleNooneshere: many people find it easiest to just edit an existing theme, though02:46
sje46blakkheim, what's that?  And I'm not looking for advice.02:46
Some_PersonIs it possible to get java working in epiphany02:46
mkanyicyDimoutlook, try #winehq02:46
ezrafreemezquitale: perhaps try asking in #windows02:46
blakkheimsje46: dban is a tool for securely erasing the contents of a hard drive02:46
KenBW2Dimoutlook: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=462502:46
sje46ezrafree, someone on reddit says that once is all you need, because it wipes it at the bit level02:46
mezquitaleDimoutlook, that sounds like a generic question that will get a better answer in the forums or google02:46
NooneshereArdchoille i just want to make some minor image and code edits. I assume i need to learn minor gtk correct?02:46
ardchoille!google | mezquitale02:46
ubottumezquitale: While Google is useful for helpers, many newer users don't have the google-fu yet. Please don't tell people to "google it" when they ask a question.02:46
mezquitaleezrafree, i dont think i want to explain ssh and sftp to windows users02:47
ezrafreesje46: i am only conveying what i've heard, i do not know for sure02:47
ardchoilleNooneshere: that would help02:47
functionofxytoastedmilk, I have an HD 48030 (R770 series). The big difference (i.e. decrease in performance) seems to be in window manager/compiz02:47
mezquitaleardchoille, he uses wine so most likely he's not a new user02:47
functionofxyvideo is the same as before02:47
NooneshereArdchoille thank you very much :)02:47

Dimoutlookmkanyicy thanks I have it running just wondered if it makes as many coasters as the regular stuff02:47
kurouReddit is awesome.... sorry for being off-topic.02:47
Dr_Willisphong_:  it makes my wife seasick02:47
mezquitaleezrafree, if they use windows mainly for their own computing then that tells you a lot02:48
ezrafreesje46: myself personally i would probably not trust reddit as a reliable source of information02:48
sje46ezrafree, I am so facepalming right now02:48
ezrafreemezquitale: a lot of them don't, they're just in there to help folks out. take my advice or leave it, up to you.02:48
toastedmilkfunctionofxy, maybe you need to configure your x under the radeonhd driver?  have you looked at ubuntu's community documentation?  then again, since ati is supporting it's fglrx for the hd series, I would probably use that unless I had a program that specifically didn't have support for it02:48
mezquitaleezrafree, let me try the windows channel just for kicks though, i'll try the offtopic channel first though02:49
SectorX4Why would the "Detect network hardware" section of Ubuntu 9.10 install tell me it's found usb-storage hardware and want to load the module02:49
sje46ezrafree, did you even read the comment?  Or do you like saying idiotic things just to troll?  He linked to another website.  He gave a big explanation.  Just don't dismiss it just because it was a comment on a website.02:49
ezrafreemezquitale: i'd think you'd have better chances of someone in #windows knowing about ssh/sftp then someone in #ubuntu/#ubuntu-offtopic knowing about windows mobile02:49
sje46ezrafree, should I dismiss everything said on this channel because "you shouldn't believe anything on IRC"?  Idiotic02:50
LizardK|ngyes02:50
krysisinteresting o.o02:50
functionofxytoastedmilk,  i did use the community doc site to install and configure. meganerd told me the exact opposite--that i'd be better off under radeonhd even though i have a newish card02:50
ezrafreesje46: yesi did read through it, but i'm also not familiar with actionfront.com02:50
sje46I was asking if his information was true, anyways.02:50
ardchoilleLet's keep it on topic folks, please02:50
Quirklyso umm, anyone know a lick about accessing windows printer, via xubuntu??02:50
kurouUbuntu: 1270 people. Windows: 277. That says something. :D02:50
Dr_WillisQuirkly:  the cups config tools should let you set it up.02:51
sje46Something is not inherently false just because of the website...if it has information explaining it, judge it from /that/.  So is it true?02:51
krysisif anyone has any spare time i would like some help with video drivers intel mobile02:51
mezquitaleezrafree, apparently you havent been to the offtopic channel often, i've been on both channels though on windows not as often as i'd like but let me go down there and see how many souls I fright02:51
toastedmilkkurou, for percentage of users of an OS that also use IRC..02:51
Quirklywell, Dr_Willis I don't seem to be able to access them02:51
phong_the thems u show me are background images02:51
Quirklythe tools that is02:51
phong_oh god, i want a real themes02:51
QuirklyI can get into a print settings, where I can add a cups server, but the windows machine sure ain't a cups server as far as I know02:51
KenBW2Quirkly: iirc you can install standard gnome components in xubuntu02:51
ezrafreephong_: do you have emerald installed?02:51
Dr_WillisQuirkly:   cups has a web interface on http://127.0.0.1:631 also i recall02:51
mezquitalekrysis, go ahead and ask the question, all on one line02:51
phong_no02:51
Dr_WillisI think its port 63102:51
phong_what is it02:51
Quirklylol, I tried that too, it failed miserable, not sure what I don't have installed02:52
krysisyes on that cups interface02:52
RabbitbunnyIs there a button I can flip to turn off automounting of drives for a while? I broke some partitions.02:52
ezrafreephong_: if it were me, i'd install emerald (a theme manager for compiz)02:52
phong_but how to get it02:52
phong_i'm new to linux02:52
toastedmilkfunctionofxy, Haha, it's really all a matter of opinion.  What I would suggest is to install and configure both, then run high-end programs through the terminal to compare and contrast output.  Whichever seems to run smoother, go with.02:52
QuirklyI can only install limited stuff on this machine, it overheats quickly when installing a lot of packages, so gnome stuffs out of question02:52
Dr_WillisQuirkly:  i dont use xubuntu so no idea what they are lacking. check the apcakge manager for the gnome cups config tool perhaps and install it02:52
Dr_Willisphong_:  its best to forget about emerald. its a dead project02:52
ezrafreephong_: installing software on ubuntu is done through "Ubuntu Software Center" located under the Applications menu02:52
SectorX4Lot of help this channel has been.....02:52
KenBW2Quirkly: http://127.0.0.1:631/printers/ seems to work here02:52
ezrafreeDr_Willis: it's working perfectly over here02:53
* Dr_Willis sends SectorX4 a bill02:53
functionofxytoastedmilk, thanks. I think I'll switch back to fglrx02:53
krysisphong what exactly are you looking for? Icons? Windows Themes?02:53
Quirklysee, I thought I should be pretty damn close, because some smb tool, I forget what, gave me a list, and well it saw the printer, and I can access shared folders on the machine just fine02:53
Quirklyoh /printers?02:53
QuirklyI thought maybe I forgot something02:53
krysiswindow* not window$02:53
phong_krysis: windows themes with effects02:53
phong_krysis: a better windows themes with effects02:53
krysisthe best would definately be a combination of emerald from the repository with compiz enabled, ever try this?02:53
toastedmilkfunctionofxy, until something goes wrong ;)02:53
Quirklynope no worky on here02:53
phong_krysis: no i 've never try02:53
ezrafreekrysis: i agree, that's what i'm running here02:53
phong_krysis: i'm new to linux02:53
Dr_Willis!emerald02:53
krysisok, hold on leme get you the commands02:53
ubottuemerald is an obsolete window decorator for compiz. It's unsupported and unmaintained, making issues with it very hard to diagnose and fix. There are no known, supported alternatives.02:53
toastedmilkAnyone know anything about installing splash files with the extension .os with usplash?02:54
KenBW2Quirkly: the problem is probably how the host PC is set up02:54
functionofxytoastedmilk, thanks! I'll  try to let you know what happens02:54
phong_krysis: how to make it work ?02:54
Rabbitbunnyphong_: 'Ubuntu Software Center'. It's noob mode.02:54
phong_krysis: or where to get it02:54
dell_Something happen to my ubuntu it keep on going black screen02:54
krysisoh, do you have compiz enabled?02:54
krysisok*02:54
ezrafreeDr_Willis: i was not aware that it was no longer supported, thank you for the information02:54
Dr_Willistoastedmilk:  i seem to recall that being phased  out in the next release. :) but thats all i know on the topic.02:54
brando753guys how can i delete a U3 partition (reformatting and zeroing out does not delete this)02:54
phong_yes i do have it enabled02:54
Quirklywell, perhaps....I mean, it's shared, and I can access share folders just fine, but I am missing something, like the pretty add printer button every set of instructions speaks of02:54
toastedmilkfunctionofxy, yeah just PM me whenever02:54
phong_i have GTX 2502:54
phong_GTX 28502:54
mkanyicyphong_, check the URL i pasted on your pm02:54
krysisok, go to terminal and type in "sudo apt-get install emerald"02:54
ardchoilleDr_Willis: when Ubuntu has gnome 3.0 by default, compiz is going bye-bye anyway02:54
Dr_WillisI imagine emerald will also vanish in the next release.02:54
krysisto install the window themes02:54
dell_When I try use wireless it keep black screen of death02:54
Rabbitbunnyphong_: Don't click any URL anyone pastes to you in pm02:54
krysisDo you know how to edit your compiz effects?02:55
toastedmilkDr_Willis, you're killin' me smalls.  I'm using jaunty, it should have pretty much been phased out by now.  But I have this awesome splash screen!02:55
Rabbitbunnymkanyicy: That's a good way to get banned.02:55
Dr_Willisardchoille:  ive not heard much good about gnome-3 - but it is still a work in progress. :)02:55
dell_no error msg or anthing just show plan black screen02:55
mkanyicyRabbitbunny, how?02:55
krysisi love gnome 3! will be amazing when it comes stable, it brings out more usability with desktops02:55
brando753Krysis: CCSM type compiz in ubuntu software center02:55
phong_i saw it02:55
krysismultiple*02:55
ezrafreephong_: yes never get help in PM with linux, someone could potentially make you do something bad and noone else will see it to warn you that it's a bad idea02:55
krysisor you can use the simple compiz editor02:55
phong_i see02:55
Dr_Willistoastedmilk:  you copy it to the right place is all i seem to recall on installing them. The gnome-look site may have some info ion how to install them02:55
toastedmilkkrysis, System -> Preferences -> CompizConfig02:56
phong_krysis can u just tell me the good them now02:56
krysisphong, have you installed emerald?02:56

dell_when i've try firefox it keep black screen off death02:56
QuirklyKenBW2, Dr_Willis basically all I'm trying to do is find the app that lets me add a network printer.....thank you for the input, hopefully maybe google will reveal something to me02:56
phong_ok i did that02:56
krysisits easier to copy and paste toasted02:56
ezrafreephong_: to download emerald, go to APPLICATIONS > UBUNTU SOFTWARE CENTER02:56
phong_i have terminal open02:56
krysisok now phont copy this "sudo apt-get install emerald simple-ccsm"02:56
krysiswithout the quuotes02:56
krysisand paste it to your terminal02:56
krysisthen press enter and follow instructions02:57
phong_i think it did install now02:57
Rabbitbunnyezrafree: They never like the easy way..02:57
phong_still following and click yes02:57
KenBW2Quirkly: perhaps xubuntu doesn't support printer shares out of the box - i remember it not supporting samba shares02:57
phong_it's done krysis02:57
Dr_WillisQuirkly:  if the cups web interface is not working.. somthing else may be needed as well02:57
krysisok, then when its done it'll take you back to the typing, can you type?02:57
toastedmilkDr_Willis, It's in the /usr/share/pixmamps/splash folder, but the 'Login Window' settings menu doesn't have it in a list, nor can find it in the folders02:57
phong_yes i can type02:57
krysisok cool02:57
toastedmilkkrysis, i hope you made a backup.02:58
Quirklywell, I have a feeling it doesn't support them out of the box KenBW2, thus my questions, lol, even went onto GNOME and can't find the add printer dialog all the instructions speak of02:58
phong_what's next now ?02:58
krysiswhat for toasted?02:58
Dr_Willistoastedmilk:  Hmm the usplash stuff happens befor the login window I belive.. Xsplash in 9.10 happens right befor/after the GDM login window02:58
krysisok02:58
Quirklyand Dr_Willis I've begun digging into why my cups isn't working02:58
krysisphong go here: http://gnome-look.org/index.php?xcontentmode=103&PHPSESSID=9193a3cc2631d71ad8ad6e56af7ad23b02:58
krysisall themes are here, do you know how to download files from this site?02:58
phong_'m in there02:58
KenBW2Quirkly: in gnome it's System > Admin > Printing02:58
phong_i saw a lot of them02:58
krysisok go ahead and download one of those themes to your desktop02:58
phong_ok i will brb02:58
krysisok02:58
QuirklyKenBW2, I have that, but it only allows me to add a CUPs printer02:58
krysistoasted why backup? for what?02:59
KenBW2Quirkly: as opposed to?02:59
ezrafreesje46: also, regarding your initial question, it depends whom you are trying to make the data unrecoverable from. read up on the Gutmann algorithm02:59
Dr_Williskrysis:  the gnome-art and gnome-artng tools are handy for downloading themes02:59
Quirklywell, I dunno what a shared printer would be considered02:59
Quirklywhere would my cups server be?02:59
toastedmilkDr_Willis, oh...crap.  Wrong preference menu.  I have 9.04, but where is the usplash logo config menu? or command?02:59
Quirklythat's what it asks for02:59
Rabbitbunnykrysis: Use complete nicks, there's a good chance of a partial match.02:59
krysisi dont think i've used those... i'll try02:59
ezrafreesje46: 1 wipe may make it unrecoverable to some, but not to say, Department of Defense02:59
KenBW2Quirkly: go to New > Network Printers >  Windows printer via SAMBA02:59
krysisah ok, with tab, got it Rabbitbunny :P02:59
Quirklynew is greyed out03:00
Quirklythat's the problem03:00
Dr_Willistoastedmilk:  no idea. the extent i use usplash is to disable it with 'nosplash' in the kernel boot options. I find it totally useless.. and causes more probolems then it fix's03:00
orizonhi all03:00
Quirklyonly thing avail is the "Connect..." option03:00
ViridianFiredoes anyone know how to fully remove KDE?03:00

sarujimkanyicy: that on just reads "Unable to seek on /dev/sda03:24
phong_should i do ./configure ?03:24

krysisphong_:  remember you can use tab to complete the name of the file03:25
sarujimkanyicy: yes, first blank line then Unable to seek on /dev/sda03:25
Quirklyeh, well, see the other problem is that this laptop is a hand me down, and overheats quickly, particularly when installing ubuntu and a big number of packages03:25
boxfishdarryl_sockwell : I think that ram is a bit too low really, to be of great use03:25
ouyesKenBW2,  thanks , you did help me .03:25
Quirklywhen I want a permanent fix, like when I get a new hard drive, I'll probably do a ubuntu proper install03:26
sarujimkanyicy: how do i find out what sda is?03:26
KenBW2Quirkly: take the cover off and give the dust a blow03:26
KenBW2Quirkly: that helped with a friend's laptop overheating problem03:26

Quirklywell, the hard drive is baerly functioning too...03:26
charles__I recently uninstalled Firefox, but there are still two firefox folders in /etc, would it be safe to remove these? i imagine they are the reason i still see reference to firefox in BleachBit03:26
QuirklyI only can run this with an ice pack underneath lol, it's crazy03:26
phong_krysis: the tab only give up to Mac4Lin_03:26
phong_haha03:26
krysisif anyone likes games in here go check out "Quake Live" its amazing, works great from the firefox03:26
sarujimkanyicy: i know but I have a few and couldnt it also be a cdrom? or flash drive?03:26
QuirklyI'll probably take it apart and clean it at some point, like when I get a new drive03:26
krysisphong_:  what other filenames with Mac4Lin are there?03:27
KenBW2Quirkly: lol, why wait03:27
sarujimkanyicy: or sda is my live cd?03:27

mkanyicysaruji, honestly that is beyond my experience. all i can say is that back up your files soon as you access them, things might get even worse03:30

ryanpriorI just installed Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) on my laptop. The install went great, and it boots up fine, but when I log in every character of text is displayed as a box. I already tried re-installing, but that didn't fix it. In the LiveCD system, the text looks fine. Any ideas why it doesn't render right in an installed system?03:30

lacitaI am setting up a 5TB+ partititon with a gpt partition table. The drive is comprised of 4x2TB in RAID5. To boot from this drive, I must have 2 boot partitionsa: a Dell Utility Partition (94.1Mb), and a FAT32 partition (2.01Gb) at the beginning of the drive. The placement of the Dell Utility partition is from sector 63 to 192779, The placement of the FAT32 partition should be from sector 192780 to 4401809. This is easy to set up using fdisk, however, there03:47

alekschola?04:16

TomV-415But Palimpset Disk Utility seems to see everything correctly..04:28
krysisOpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 965GM GEM 20090712 2009Q2 RC3 x86/MMX/SSE204:28
boxfishMaz3mike : you basically refer to the drives by a unique id number04:28
switch10TomV-415: that is odd.  ask your question again, maybe someone else knows.  gparted should see your windows partition04:28
kinja-sheepFauntix: Yes. Anything above 3GB Ram.04:28

crdlbkrysis: you can't expect every channel to be as busy as #ubuntu04:37
kinja-sheepFauntix: I imagine you would want to use regular amd64 desktop instead of MID.04:37
krysiswell crdlb im just going to test out the driver, im not dissapointed or anything, might as well give it a try04:37
krysisyes coz_04:37
FauntixKinja: this is not the 4gb ram one lol this one only has 1gb lol04:38
coz_krysis,  ok that should work...I believe git-core is a default install so try it out and the file should download to the Desktop04:38
kinja-sheepFauntix: That is fine.04:38
kinja-sheepcoz_: git-core is not part of ubuntu-desktop metapackage.04:39
krysisyeah im just installing git-core, when i use the04:39
krysis git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/driver/xf86-video-intel04:39
krysisit says that "no such file or directory" should there be a space between git and the rest in the command?04:39
krysis  04:39
FauntixKinja: so use the 64bit or just the 32bit, since i have less ram??04:39

phong_everytime i have to resize man04:41
marcio_hi04:41
kinja-sheepFauntix: If you're new to linux community, in theory, it would be *more* safe for you to use 32bit -- but in reality, there are no such thing like that. You should not factor 32bit or 64bit based on the size of your ram.04:41

ryanpriorI just installed Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) on my laptop. The install went great, and it boots up fine, but when I log in every character of text is displayed as a box. I already tried re-installing, but that didn't fix it. In the LiveCD system, the text looks fine. Any ideas why it doesn't render right in an installed system?05:01

Random832no... i use alt-f1 because i've got only the one menu in the lower left corner with everything on it05:03
lacitaI am setting up a 5TB+ partititon with a gpt partition table. The drive is comprised of 4x2TB in RAID5. To boot from this drive, I must have 2 boot partitionsa: a Dell Utility Partition (94.1Mb), and a FAT32 partition (2.01Gb) at the beginning of the drive. The placement of the Dell Utility partition is from sector 63 to 192779, The placement of the FAT32 partition should be from sector 192780 to 4401809. This is easy to set up using fdisk, however, there05:03

Flannelfieldse: You'll need to use sudo to write to it, so `echo "blah" >> /etc/apt/sources.list` won't work, and `sudo echo "blah" >> /etc/apt/sources.list` will sudo the echo, but the redirection won't be elevated. So you get around it by piping to tee, which you can sudo.05:05

rwwFauntix: if you wanted to upgrade from 8.04 to 9.10, you'd need to do 8.04 -> 8.10 -> 9.04 -> 9.10, so getting a new disc would probably be a lot easier05:15

scunizijguzikowski: you could install a dual boot setup and then run it.. you'll only need about 6gigs for the install.. probably less.. after that you can use windows to resize it's partition, reinstall again deleting the ubuntu partitions and recreating them in more appropriate sizes.05:22

hyliantoastedmilk are you saying i should script this? what i dont get with linux is why most of what i want to do has to be scripted by me. why isnt there a simple on off switch like most other os's? i suppose the answer would be that linux was developed in a country that uses 24 hour time format.06:24

hyperstreammohhoh, the xp machine has no password set for the account, i remember reading that i need to add an account to the ubuntu box, but that requires a password06:26
mohhohhyperstream: when you provide the corect info it should have a remember function06:26
hyperstreammohhoh, still prompts everytime ;/06:26
hyliantoastedmilk the actual system time, (NOT the clock). for instance, after entering a terminal, you can type date and you will get a nice time date stamp. i want the time date stamp to use 12 hour time.

indusfuturama140, so thats a nice card, which drivers aare you using06:32
hylianfuturama140 this is not much of a solution, but one of the reasons why i am not running ubuntu is because it no longer supports my ati driver. my solution was to switch to pclinuxos2009 because it not only supports my hardware, it already comes with the nvidia and ati drivers from the manufacturer. only thing is, in order to be "backwards compatable" they basically had to stay one step behind on a few things. but i am runing a ati x1300 that woul06:32
hyliand never run on ubuntu 9.10. it's not an answer, but maybe a sloppy solution.06:32
mohhohfuturama140: slow down and breathe. first of all what moddle is your gcard06:33

sebsebsebmandi: burning the ISO contents to CD slower can help.  also their's a disk check on the CD, that will check if the psyical CD is ok or not,  if it errors well then it's not, but that might be since a bit of dirt on the CD,  so if the dirt is cleaned off the CD might pass06:37

LDCi had to do a complete new reinstall... and this time i didn't put in any swap since my RAM is 2GB. had a / partition and a /home partition and dind't skip anything in the end.06:49
* om26er is muted06:50
LDCand now i want to know how ot fix slow USB transfers, everyone on the internet seems to be having that06:50
hylianfuturama140, i may be way off base here, but is there a chance your refresh rate is set to one that doesnt agree with your monitor? (couls this be monitor based?)06:50
indusfuturama140, is compiz enabled? did you check with disabling it? there are many many things which could be tried.Monitor is at correct refresh rate?06:50
`rettIn case anyone's interested, I've released an open source project at www.ipnode.org that uses AuFS and SquashFS to build a modular root with module category prioritization, e.g. "config package system" which causes config related modules to get a higher priority in the union than package and system modules.  Using a "parent" server, the nodes check for updates, dowloads/verifies the checksum and hot adds modules to the running system.  It supports copy to ram an06:50
Flannel`rett: Please don't advertise here, thanks.06:50
indusLDC, i hope you have a swap06:50
Santisnight...06:50
`rettDarn buffer..06:50
`rettSo far it works for remote nodes with local storage and PXE with NFS root.06:51
induswgrant, i hear people made it work on 9.0406:51
LDCi was reading the tutorial of 'psychocats'06:51
LDChe suggested 2GB ram is enough to skip a SWAP partition06:51
`rettThe reason I'm posting here is I developed and tested with Ubuntu and livecd-helper. :)06:51
indusLDC, thats nonsense as far as i know06:51
Santisnightom26er,  what now?06:51
om26erSantisnight, play anything in youtube and then right click on the volume icon in the top panel. click sound preferences and go to applications tab and if chromium is there06:51
futurama140hylian: i forget exactly but i believe my monitor refresh rate is permenantly stuck at 50hz06:51
LDCum........what can i say? :D06:51
futurama140indus: i do not have compiz.06:51
wgrantLDC, indus: It very much depends on what you run.06:52
indus`rett, ubuntu off topic is good for this06:52
c0l2egnome-panel randomly crashes.. how can i fix this???06:52
indus`rett, also, hosted on sourceforge?06:52
LDCbut i am sure that is not the reason why my USB transfers are slow... MANY  else seems to be having that06:52
Flannel`rett: This channel is for support only, not advertisement.  Thanks for understanding.06:52
`rettSorry, it's been 10+ years since I've been in IRC. lol06:52
`rettthx06:52
Santisnightom26er,  it is.06:52
induswgrant, why is it that whatever we have heard and done till now is being negated06:52
hylianldc it is, but linux is written to work with a swap partition, and seems to run less buggy with one. my friend has a 8 gigz, and still gets better functionality with a 512 meg swap. (i have absolutely no idea why)06:52
induswithout swap system doesnt shutdown or sleep or hibernate properly06:52
wgrantindus: Pardon?06:52
Flannel`rett: Since the previous suggestion was a bit confusing, #ubuntu-offtopic (/join #ubuntu-offtopic) would be an appropriate place to discuss/etc06:53
induswgrant, iam talking about swap here06:53
wgrantindus: Of those three, only hibernate is affected.06:53
wgrantOnly hibernation uses swap.06:53
LDCthat is the thing... i don't use hibernate *i think? *06:53
indusLDC, the official docs say swap is needed06:53
hylianindus thanx man, i was always confused why linux works better with swap, hmm06:53
LDCmy friends.... but i am sure eveyrnoe else who had USB problems used SWAP06:53
induswgrant, maybe i should edit the ubuntu doc then for this swap thing06:54
LDCspeed is at 600 - 700 kbps ....06:54
Santisnightom26er, OK NOW I HAVE NO SOUND PERIOD.06:54
SantisnightWTF.06:54
indusi too never use it, but swap i believe is needed in some situations06:54
LDCwhich is ofcourse similar to the problem others on the internet are facing about slow USB transfers06:54
hylianldc technically swap isnt neccessary, but i would do it. i usually give about 3%06:54
indusya ubuntu has slow usb transfre really06:54
futurama140indus: would remote control desktop be an option to allow someone to help me?06:55
indusfuturama140, hmm yes06:55
wevlopwhat no video chat in gmail in ubuntu?!06:55
induswevlop, gmail in linux you mean06:55
LDCexactly.... ubuntu has slow transfers and a thousan people suggest a thousand solutions.. i have tried two i think :D still no change06:55
wgrantindus: On my machines the transfer speed is fine. Do not generalise.06:55
wevlopindus, yes. life is unfair :(06:55
om26erwevlop, empathy support video calling and I do video call06:55
futurama140indus: do you have any suggestions of how to eliminate the flicker besides http://www.ubuntusolutions.org/2009/02/screen-flickering-with-nvidia-on-ubuntu.html06:56
LDCnot to mention ubutnu sound quality seems very 'muffled' compared to the glory of Windows XP.... but is this only with Ubuntu or the geeks can get better things done in linux?06:56
Santisnightom26er,  solution? please?06:56
wevlopom26er, with a gmail/google apps account? thats great news06:56
hylianfuturama140, that 50hz consistent doesnt sound right, any chance you could run to a diiferent monitor? usually you have several choices for refresh rate. if you could borrow a monitor, atleast if you say the flicker you could rule out the monitor. always a good thing to be able to rule something out06:56
rumpsyon myside it supports, 1.3mbps, usb file transfer :)06:56
futurama140BRB06:56
wevlopom26er, i can use that06:56
induswgrant, yes your machine diff, but i have 15 machines in work and they all have this issue and i quote from popular ubuntu forum threads btw06:56

GSF1200Sdoes anyone here know where firefox looks for the flash .so file? I have adobe's flash 10, but I need to know where firefox looks at it07:00
indusfuturama140, which theme is that ? dust?07:00
indusGSF1200S, /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins is one07:00
indusGSF1200S, 64 bit?07:00
futurama140hylian: can you walk me through how to change my refresh rate?07:00
wgrantGSF1200S: Why not use the package?07:01
GSF1200Sindus: yes, 64bit and I have the 64bit plugin07:01
futurama140indus: its a customized dust i believe.07:01
hylianactually in that depends on whether your gonna do it in ubuntu or if you can do it through hardware..07:01
GSF1200Sbecause the package manager uses nspluginwrapper, and yes im on 9.1007:01
indusGSF1200S, ok move it to hidden folder .mozilla/plugins or create the plugins folder07:02
c0l2emy gnome-panel always crashes...how to fix??07:02
hylianfuturama140, but mostly if through ubuntu, right clicking on the desktop should give you the options, next to the screen sixe (124x768 for instance) should be a 50hz, for instance, that shoud be your refrsh rate, try and change it07:02
hylianmy keyboarding really gets sloppy when i try to type. 1024x768, for instance.07:03
indusGSF1200S, but dont forget to remove the older flash completely07:03
futurama140hylian: theres no option for resolution or refresh or anything07:03
indusGSF1200S, is that your bike name?07:03
indusfuturama140, change it through the nvidia settings panel07:04
GSF1200Sindus: yes it is.. love it07:04
indusGSF1200S, :)07:04
hylianwhen you right click on the desktop and choose properties? hmm. well the other option should be under system , and then nvidia's linux control center. it should be changeable there as well07:04
indusa suzuki?07:04
GSF1200Sindus: indeed07:05
futurama140indus: it says it failed to parse existing xorg.conf when i try to save the setting07:05
indusfuturama140, yes use sudo nvidia-settings from terminal07:05
indusfuturama140, all xorg changes need sudo permissions07:05
indusbrb07:05
hylianfuturama140, actually thanx to your screenshot, it's right there "x server display configuration"07:06
futurama140futurama140@futurama140-desktop:~$ sudo nvidia-settings [sudo] password for futurama140:   ERROR: Error parsing configuration file '/home/futurama140/.nvidia-settings-rc'        on line 55: '0/GPU2DClockFreqs=589,400 0/GPU3DClockFreqs=589,400'        (Trailing garbage).   PARSE ERROR:  Parse error on line 60 of section Module in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

denis123Hi. I installed Docky using this guide (http://tombuntu.com/index.php/2009/12/20/how-to-install-docky-in-ubuntu-9-10/) via terminal. How can i remove it now. It seems to have stuffed up and I can't remove it via Ubuntu Software Centre07:07

futurama140hylian: thanks anyway07:08
indushylian, aah yes gksu thanks07:08
hylianfuturama140, sorry man i really didnt help. my last suggestion is if you can swap monitors with someone for a hour if just to rule out the monitor as one of the problems.07:08
hyliankdesu! good bye07:09
mohhohhi i have a new install i was setting it up and installed a few things. now when i boot comp i get to the login screen i click my uesrname adn pasword. then the boot sound comes up but i am still stuck pon the broen bootloader screen. and i cant get in.07:10

charles__where is the "program files" type directory in ubuntu? i've installed a program and don't see it in my applications menu07:26
kingsofleon1820is there a wa07:26
kingsofleon1820y i can hack ubuntu server07:26
airtonixcharles__, installed programs are not kept in a central location07:26
induscharles__, no such thing here really07:26
charles__hmmm07:26
kingsofleon1820can anybody help07:27
induscharles__, goes to various locations , executable will probably be in /usr/bin or something07:27
charles__kinda makes tracking things down a pain in the ass, i would imagine07:27
airtonixcharles__, you can however work out where the files are that a program relies on a re located with the locate command07:27
induscharles__, just type the name in terminal07:27
Myrtticharles__: why would it?07:27
Myrttikingsofleon1820: help you to hack into a ubuntu server? no?07:27
kingsofleon1820i need to install ubuntu on 64 mb ram machine07:27
airtonixcharles__, or you can use apt-file... or the dpkg tools07:27
Myrttiah, hack in that sense of the word...07:27
gimpy530I have a NAS that thinks its / is full, but du does not show that at all.  http://pastebin.com/m64d12f5e07:28
charles__what does apt-file do? man isn't bringing anything up07:28
kingsofleon1820hack as in just for fun07:28
airtonixcharles__, i think you need to install it first07:28
charles__ah07:28
Flannelcharles__: It searches [all the packages] for files in packages07:28
ardchoille!info apt-file | charles__07:28
geirhacharles__: If you search up the package in synaptic, you can see the list of files it installed in the properties for that package. From the terminal, you can use «dpkg -L packagename»07:28
ubottucharles__: apt-file (source: apt-file): search for files within Debian packages (command-line interface). In component universe, is optional. Version 2.2.2 (karmic), package size 25 kB, installed size 172 kB07:28
Myrttikingsofleon1820: you can try with minimal, but I wouldn't be too hopeful07:28
Myrtti!minimal | kingsofleon182007:29
ubottukingsofleon1820: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD07:29
chalcedonyFlannel, good to see you :)07:29
FlannelHowdy chalcedony07:29

charles__here's the thing, i added a few locations to software sources, installed an aplication, and it doesn't show up in my aplications menu07:29
kingsofleon1820which wm should i use07:29
airtonixcharles__, try using dpkg -L packagename << -L not -l07:29
Myrttikingsofleon1820: depends on your personal preferance.07:29
kingsofleon1820which are the right choices for 64 mb ram07:30
airtonixcharles__, also take note that the terminal has a nifty tab completion feature on a fair number of aspects07:30
induskingsofleon1820, try damnsmalllinux07:30
indus!puppy07:30
induswoops07:30
geirhacharles__: «grep 'status installed' /var/log/dpkg.log | tail» will give you the package names (of recently installed packages)07:30
Chr|sI installed ubuntu using wubi, how do I increase the root partition size?07:31
Myrttigimpy530: you do realise that your df -h does say that / is full, right?07:31
gimpy530yea, but I can;t find WHERE that space is used07:31
MyrttiChr|s: with great difficulty, or not at all07:31
charles__okay, i see it with that "dpkg command, and i can still call ti up in synaptic anyway, so i'm sure it's there...07:31

chalcedonyumm if i can only have telnet access, how do i do it?07:32
parajI cannot for the life of me get the nvidia 185 restricted driver to work on 9.10 with my 9800GTX+. Only 173 works. 185 worked for me on 8.10. Checked xorg, jockey and tried installing 185 and 190 from the pkg files directly from nvidia. Also tried dpkg-reconfigure with the source pkg and nvidia-xconfig. Nothing works and nothing on any of the forums works. Any ideas?07:32
charles__incidentally, the program is deng.. it's the linux doomsday engine07:32
MyrttiChr|s: yes, most people consider wubi a kind of a demo for checking that everything works.07:32
MyrttiChr|s: not for prolonged use07:32
charles__wubi?07:33
indusparaj, the 173 is actually a great driver07:33
Chr|s Myrtti alright, thanks :)07:33
charles__sorry.. different person :D07:33
indusparaj, why are you trying newer ?07:33
parajindus: Problem is the gnome behaviour on 9.10 doesn't seem to be the same as 185 on 8.10 (eg: panel width doesn't respect monitor size)07:33
geirhacharles__: It's probably a CLI application. Typically only GUI applications show in in the menus.07:34
=== CocoPuff is now known as Omar87
charles__CLI = command line interface, right?07:35
geirhacharles__: right07:35
charles__so i'd just type the name of the application, i woudl imagine?07:35
charles__hmm... not doing anything07:36
ardchoillecharles__: depends on what you want to do07:36

XpistosI have an NTFS drive that I want to convert to ext4, but I am not sure of the command. I think it should be something like "mkfs -c -t ext4 /dev/sdbX" as it is not the primary drive. I am not sure how to also give the drive a label as "data: Can some give me a hand?07:37

spinlockhello #ubuntu im using the deb package from google of their chrome browser and my question is it better to use of of the PPAs offered by ubuntu and why and which one is best for a normal user i.e. im not developing code08:10
parajGot it working with nvidia 173 but the performance is poor :/08:13
wolterspinlock, if you add the PPA you will get updates whenever the PPA owner builds a new version of chrome08:14
wolterspinlock, if the PPA is owned by google itself, then you probably should be better off installing the ppa08:15
spinlockwhich ppa do you suggest for a normal user?08:15
TomJaegerHi, how is bug #512615 going to be addressed?08:15
spinlockDaily builds, beta channel or dev channel08:15
wgrantThe PPA contains Chromium (the open source version of Chrome), and is not maintained by Google but a trusted community member.08:15
spinlockyeah i got that much08:15
TomJaegersorry, wrong channel08:15

sprungalong with everything else08:28
sayanrijusprung, I agree with actionparsnip that I haven't seen your activities to be able to comment08:28
actionparsnipSprung: restore from backup or try foremost to restore if the bits are still on the drive (data resstore is far easier)08:28
actionparsnipFuturama140: is it a commercial disk?08:29
sprungactionparsnip, you know as well as I do that i didn't back up my data.08:29
actionparsnipSprung: I assume nothing08:29
sprungi don't know why you'd even ask except to shame me08:29
actionparsnipSprung: no backup == data is disposable08:29
sayanrijusprung,  can you write new files on the desktop _now_?08:29
sprungyep, that's what you're doing08:29
futurama140actionparsnip: no it isnt. i had it installed just fine the other day, but i screwed up wine, and so it got reset earlier tonight, and now that im trying to re-install it wont work.08:30
futurama140actionparsnip: should i try mounting the iso to the /mnt folder?08:30
Slartsprung: just to make sure the files aren't somewhere else.. do you know the filename of one of the files?08:30
actionparsnipSprung: you have learned the hardest way the importance of backup. What if the drive failed and you were running windows. The OS isn't to blame, where is your data?08:30
sprungyes i can create a new file in the directory08:31
actionparsnipFuturama140: you can mount anywhere just not in /proc08:31
sprungactionparsnip, Yep, you're shaming me08:31
sprungactionparsnip, Would you mind not doing that?08:31
sprungactionparsnip, Thanks, because you are doing the opposite of helping.08:31

Acidpickrahduke: you would have to set up a vitrual network08:53
SpasysheepSlart: cheese doesn't have support for sound when watching in realtime, and vlc i just get a 'can't open device' error08:53
rahdukeAcidpick:  would the streaming video work ok? I upload at about 1.5mbps08:54
Acidpickrahduke: should be fine for non-hd08:54
rahdukeAcidpick: do you mean a VPN network?08:54
Acidpickrahduke: yes08:54
rahdukeAcidpick: you wouldnt happen to know the easiest and fastest way to set that up, and whether the client computer can add the shares to XBMC?08:55
Acidpickrahduke: SMB doesn't transverse, and security is shit anyhow so you wouldn't want to even have it possibly visible08:55
SlartSpasysheep: it might be different for different webcams.. but my webcam audio shows up as a normal sound source in pulseaudio08:55

Jack_StoneHi, I'm new to linux and there's a problem I can't solve (I've looked through google but no results yet). I'm using ubuntu 9.10 KK, I've updated my kernel from 2.6.31-17 to 2.6.33rc6 and my grub is not detectting it (even if synaptic does), I've tryed updating grub and grub2 and when I update them the new kernel is not found (same happens if I install a different kernel)... what should I do?09:42
rwwindus: You're not identified to nickserv. Try doing that first.09:42
docmaxnpviewer.bin eats my cpu!!! any ideas?09:42

Jack_Stoneexactly09:44
Jack_StoneI've got it from kernel.ubuntu.com09:44

bloodskii got a problem where i cannot remember my password set for the keyring, how can i solve this?09:52
Jack_Stonesebsebseb: I don't really understand most of it :S should I add an entry modifying grub.cfg adding something to load the kernel?09:52
nyaaindus so the newer ati generally run well?  have you done 3d gaming etc on it?09:52
indusrww, thats the open driver, wont play quake09:52

DuzchipHi, i have a problem with a computer running U 9.10. I have a projector as the only screen and that works fine in CLI but Xorg just rapports "No signal". The computer only has a DVI output but i use a DVI->VGA and then VGA into the projector. I've tried to search and even thought that http://ijk.nu/jk16ua would be the solution but still doesn't work.09:55
indusnyaa, newer ones use the proprietary drivers, will allways be faster in general , and will run all games09:55
indusnyaa, open source ones will wobble windows :D09:55
indusboth projects have developers funded by AMD !!09:55
indusSo lessons from the open driver probably go to the proprietary ones09:56
nyaaindus so ati is making proprietary drivers for linux that are good now?09:56
docmaxindus, one sec, i removed the .so file and flash still works...!!!09:56
indusnyaa, yes sure09:56
kinja-sheepbloodski: Look in ~/.gnome2/keyrings/ (Move it or delete it)09:56

indusJack_Stone, you should try the older grub if you take my advice that is10:03
Jack_Stoneindus: ubuntu 9.10 karmic koala10:03
arvind_khadriJack_Stone, you must first run sudo grub-mkconfig then update-grub10:03
indusJack_Stone, its so much more brilliantly easier to fix10:03
indusJack_Stone, i mean, which OS it wont detect10:03
knoppiesxover, are you trying to make a USB disk bootable, or are you trying to boot from an all ready USB?10:03
indusJack_Stone, maybe need to manually add entries, but for that you need to ask someone else really10:04
Jack_Stoneweird thing is, I installed grub2 from synaptic (it detected it as unninstalled) but grub2 was the default grub from the beggining10:04

indusJack_Stone, maybe try sudo update-grub2?10:04
