ralf_so i right click on desktop creat a launcher ..anyone know the command?00:00
pfred1Typos_King yes the -f switch00:00
ikoniawizard00: correct00:00
ikoniapfred1: that version is newer than the one you need, so I'm not sure what the problem is ?00:00
wizard00thank you very much!!! :)00:00
wizard00ubuntu rocks though ;)00:00
pfred1ikonia Package `libgtk2.0-dev' is not installed and no info is available.00:00
histowizard00: no00:00
hellburneris there a simple way to install a newer version of wine?  the one in karmic is old00:00
ralf_this will be a brilliant help and i d be blogging about it just want my neighbour on net00:00
klaralf_, command to do what, exactly?00:00
histowizard00: you can install software on 8.0400:00
ikoniapfred1: ok so what's stopping you installing it ?00:00
pfred1ikonia what part of 'it won't install" are you having difficulties understanding?00:00
Typos_Kingwizard00.... I don't think so, depends on what you want to install for that matter, 8.x is still supported anyway00:01
jumarralf_ the first thing you do on the desktop is right-click, create laucher, set an icon, set a command, and it should work, but i just dont know the command right now, so we gotta ask someone00:01
ikoniapfred1: you're not telling me why it won't install, error message for example00:01
pfred1ikonia I guess Ubuntu's broken package manager is the problem!00:01
ikoniapfred1: I don't think it's broken at all00:01
ikoniapfred1: could you explain the error you're having00:01
ralf_thanks jumar I will try and look it up on google .. i did try but i will give it another go00:01
histojumar: what do are you trying to do?00:01
daniskamiralf_: try gnome-session-save --logout00:02
historalf_: what are you trying to do?00:02
wizard00ok. sweet. im a newb. should i dual-boot ubuntu5 and ubuntu 8?00:02
pfred1ikonia if I issue the command sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev and I get the message libgtk2.0-dev: Depends: libgtk2.0-0 (= 2.18.3-1) but 2.18.3-1ubuntu2 is to be installed I see a problem00:02
Typos_Kingpfred1     don't think is the package manager, is the fact you're trying to install an older app which requires such lib, and the newer in place conflicts with it, is an app version issue00:02
histowizard00: why would you do that?00:02
wizard00idk.00:02
histowizard00: What are you trying to accomplish?00:02

jumaroh, nothing, trying to help ralf_ for a gnome-session commandline version what out of he can make a shutdown button on the desktop00:02
klawizard00, if you have no reason to dual boot, just install fresh00:02
histowizard00: okay are you just trolling then or do you have a question.00:02
wizard00i just heard that linux is for advanced users only00:02
histowizard00: nope00:03
histowizard00: you said you were using 8.04?00:03
ikoniapfred1: just installed it - it works fine, so the problem is either a.) you've not done an sudo apt-get update first b.) you've put additional repos in that create a conflict00:03
jumarhe's started googling, but i must go, please histo help him, i dont have gnome-session installed, thanks bye!00:03
wizard00using 5.1000:03
daniskamijumar: ralf_: gnome-session-save --logout00:03
ikoniawizard00: you said 4 earlier00:03
Typos_Kingikonia in 9.1?00:03
histojumar: me neither I don't knwo what he is trying to do00:03
pfred1ikonia OK so I need to remove repos then?00:03
jumarralf_ daniskami got it check it out00:03
histodaniskami: you'll prolly have to send ralf a pm since he left00:03
wizard00oh. srry im using 5. there a difference?00:03

histojumar: ahh yeah daniskami has it.00:04
wizard00so i cant install software. it says its unavailable00:04
ikoniapfred1: /etc/apt/sources.list00:04

ikoniawizard00: no, the distro is dead, end of lifve00:04
histowizard00: what says unavailible?00:04

histowizard00: yeah the repositories aren't there any more.00:04
daniskamihisto: bad luck ;)00:04
klawizard00, no wonder. Just use a CD.00:04
wizard00Audacity. (audio editing soft)00:05

histowizard00: you can move your home to a seperate parition then install fresh and all your documents and stuff would be there.00:05
ikoniapfred1: ok - so pastebin your sources.list as that must be the only other answer00:05

Typos_Kinghalevt....00:09
pfred1ikonia I sort of wished there was a problem because I'm no closer to a solution to not being able to install the dev package i need here00:09
ikoniapfred1: when you do a "sudo apt-get update" what happens ?00:09
pfred1ikonia let me run it again I don't remember anything important happening really00:10

pfred1ikonia ikonia http://pastebin.com/0HeVYq0S00:11
ikoniapfred1: interesting, I don't think you've given me a compelte sources.list as apt-get update is checking medibuntu - but you've not got that listed in sources.list00:12
pfred1ikonia I pasted what i found00:13
ikoniapfred1: any files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d ?00:13
=== Guest71216 is now known as matt_
ZykoticK9ikonia, medibuntu installs into (you got it) sources.list.d00:14
pfred1ikonia medibuntu.list00:14
ikoniapfred1: comment out the deb lines in that file, and then re-run apt-get update00:14
bliffleUbuntu 9.10, Thinkpad X60s, no audio, but audio OK on the XP partition. What's up?00:14
ikoniaI doubt its medibuntu - but that's all I can see00:14
Typos_KingI have the file.... for that lib, and I don't think it came from the medibuntu site00:16
ikoniaTypos_King: I agree00:16
Typos_Kingpfred1.... got a site I can upload... or email....if that's all you need00:16
ikoniaTypos_King: however that is the only external repo, and I've just checked us.archive.ubuntu.com and it's serving the correct versions00:16
pfred1ikonia it was a little different but libgtk2.0-dev still errors out00:17
ikoniapfred1: what stood out as different ?00:17
duffydack!grub00:17
ubottugrub is the default boot manager for Ubuntu releases before Karmic (9.10). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto - See !grub2 for Karmic onwards.00:17
pfred1ikonia update took a little longer00:17
pfred1ikonia I still get E: Broken packages00:18
ikoniapfred1: which package is it complaining is broke ?00:18
pfred1ikonia   libgtk2.0-dev: Depends: libgtk2.0-0 (= 2.18.3-1) but 2.18.3-1ubuntu2 is to be installed00:18
randomusrikonia: thank you!00:18
pfred1ikonia its just not accepting 2.18.3-1ubuntu2 as a dep for (= 2.18.3-1)00:19

pedahzurHaving trouble with an Ubuntu Net install here. Everything set up fine (including the LVM), but the grub install is failing with "Could not find device for /boot: Not found or not a block device."  Advice from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=504678 helped a little: I was able to copy the needed files into /boot, but the find command still says file not found even though 'ls' says otherwise. help?00:21
Guest26478Como troca o nick sem precisar sair... ?00:21
ikoniapfred1: synaptic is the best option, it's stable / compatible packages, but lets see if we can fix this00:21
pfred1ikonia dang do I need all these deb files?00:22
nutzi've got problem with wireless (rt61pci) and it's supposed to be kernel-related. so i'm wondering: now that 2.6.33 is out - how long is it gonna take until it's gonna be used in ubuntu?00:22
ikoniapfred1: no - remove them all00:22
pfred1ikonia with pleasure!00:22
ikonianutz: it will be in lucid00:22
bun_bunTypos_King: how do I get the "acpi-off" to become permanent?00:22
nutzikonia: oh.. so probably no fix for my rt61pci problem until april00:22
pfred1ikonia eeww what is a "partial" directory?00:22
ikonianutz: no kernel changes to 9.1000:22
ikoniapfred1: in what respect ?00:23
Out_Coldcan i use grep to ignore strings? possibly multiple strings?00:23
nutzikonia: okay, thanks00:23
pfred1ikonia inside of /var/cache/apt/archives00:23
pfred1ikonia this is a complete mess!00:23
ikoniapfred1: sudo rm -rf *00:23
pfred1ikonia done00:23
nutzikonia: i'm gonna build my own kernel then, i guess - i found two guides help.ubuntu.. and wiki.ubuntu.. is one of them recommended?00:23
Typos_Kingbun_bun:    <kla> bun_bun, you edit /etc/default/grub  with your custom command-line options and then run update-grub200:23
pfred1ikonia there was even a lock file in there too00:23
ikoniapfred1: ok , one more thing00:23
ikoniapfred1: yeah, that's a bit messy, but we can fix that00:24
acuI have a single partition - I want to backup the entire system and restore it in another hard disk - a mirror - what is the best and easiest program which can do that ?00:24
pfred1ikonia oh its gone now00:24
ikoniapfred1: cd .. rm pkgcache.bin00:24
bun_bunTypos_King: edit with nano?00:24
Typos_Kingbun_bun:    I do it by editing /boot/grub/grub.cfg   which in the new grub, is the equivalent to the old menu.lst... and then I back it up, if ever gets changed00:24
Typos_Kingbun_bun:   nano, vim, emac, any text editor will do00:24
pfred1ikonia I have a srcpkgcache.bin too get rid of it?00:25
ikoniapfred1: nah, that can stay00:25
bun_bunTypos_King: where in grub.cfg do I add "acpi=off" ??00:25
ikoniapfred1: now "sudo apt-get update"00:25
pfred1ikonia I can fix this! E: Archive directory /var/cache/apt/archives/partial is missing.00:25

justin22885with a 500gb hdd, how big do yall think / should be?00:27
bun_bunTypos_King: I'm in /default/grub at the moment (already backed it up)00:27
ikoniajustin22885: as big as you want it to be, anything from 4gb to 500gb can be used sensibly00:27
Typos_Kingbun_bun:   at the end of the /boo/vmlinux-..... line   <----00:27

antivirt1lhello all, I want to mount a samba place, how can I do it ? (I've tried with: sudo mount -t smbfs <source> /mnt/ -o user=username00:28
justin22885so.. /home being seperate, what would you recommend for /?00:28
antivirt1l)00:28
histojustin22885: i usually leave 10gigs or 20gigs depends on how many apps you want to install on the box.00:28
ikoniajustin22885: it's what you wnat to use - not what I'd recommend00:28
bun_bunTypos_King: it seems "update-grub" automatically re-writes grub.cfg - does that make sense? do I then skip changing grub.cfg?00:28
pfred1ikonia no dice!00:28

histojustin22885: my current install which is custom / is only 2.77g being used00:28
pfred1ikonia of course00:29
Klavieri think problem is about keyserver00:29
Typos_Kingbun_bun:   it does, but update-grub isn't at every single bootup or installation of anything, just usually, on my case, I run it00:29
justin22885so, 20-25gb /, the rest /home should be fine00:29
histojustin22885: you can always expand it down the road and shrink home or vice versa00:29
Klavierbut i dont know how get keys and how can i use keys for keyserver00:29
antivirt1lhello all, I want to mount a samba place, how can I do it ? (I've tried with: sudo mount -t smbfs <source> /mnt/ -o user=username)00:29

justin22885im in windows 7 right now00:29
histoantivirt1l: you need to create a directory to mount to00:29
antivirt1lhmm00:30
Klavierwhat about me00:30
KlavierxD00:30
bun_bunTypos_King, I did it without touching the grub.cfg and now grub does have acpi=off in it at bootup. hmmm00:30
antivirt1lhisto and with what command ?00:30
histoantivirt1l: sudo mkdir /mnt/share00:30
histoantivirt1l: sudo mount -t cifs //IP/nameofshare /mnt/share00:30
histoantivirt1l: that should work you can try smbfs but you need the samba tools installed00:30
Typos_Kingbun_bun:   hehehe, I highly doubt that, exit the editor and check again in 'less'00:31
antivirt1lcifs is what :00:31
bun_bunTypos_King, will running this new machine with "acpi off" disable any other features?00:31
brjannacu: unfortunately most of the open-source drive imaging utilities I know of aren't very friendly. Some of them are listed here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DriveImaging00:31
antivirt1l?00:31
Typos_Kingbun_bun:   update-grub just will remake it as it was without it00:31
histoantivirt1l: do you have any of the samba stuff installed?00:31
histoantivirt1l: you can also mount it by going to Places > Network and browsing to the share00:31
ikoniapfred1: scratching my head hard here, why you're apt-cache policy says it wants the correct version, yet apt-get install is looking for an older version00:31
ikoniapfred1: more so when it's just rocketed through on my machine00:32
antivirt1lhisto00:32
histoantivirt1l: yes?00:32
pfred1ikonia you have 9.10 ?00:32
antivirt1lif i mount, can i access to it from shell ?00:32
Typos_Kingbun_bun:   just the acpi module usage, which 'might' mean you may need to turn off the machine by also using the power button00:32
ikoniapfred1: yes00:32
brjannacu: if you're not opposed to proprietary solutions, I've used Acronis TrueImage for a few years now and am very happy with it.00:32
pfred1ikonia yes this is seriously ticking me off I'd really like my dev package so I can build something I really want to have here00:32
histoantivirt1l: yeah either way you can. If you do it through gui you just have to find where gvfs or whatever gnome uses mounts it in your home somewhere00:32
histoantivirt1l: let me try my share hold up00:33
ikoniapfred1: I understand, I just can't see how you can be in the situation you're in00:33

jon5001folks, this happened to me the other day: someone started controlling my ubuntu 9.04 computer via the VNC remote protocol that comes with the distro.  I have a password set up on this computer.  I got the intruder to start typing back and forth with me; he told me that my IP address is on a list somewhere of vulnerable computers.  He claimed to be from Romania, and claimed to have accessed many computers this way, including the01:35

arandPeskyJ: fact is, nothing of the sort has yet occured afaik. Only a metter of time I guess, but so far it has been discussed little or none...01:43
dragonbytebinMonkey: well, you would kind of need to provide how you got the executable, where you got it, how you installed it, and a whole host of other information to even begin discussing why it might have segfaulted01:44
pfred1dragonbyte its been a while but don't you need to set a ulimit to allow core dumps too?01:45

binMonkeyxangua: no.  it's not a win app.  you are very helpful, too.01:46
jon5001Losha, true.01:46

Dr_Willisclaws_: and you have some problem with the default gnome file manager?01:47

claws_is gnom commander any good?01:47
binMonkeyi don't know what you call it, but the tgz expands to a single directory and you run the program from that directory.  i tried it by cd-ing int to the directory and running ./iron.01:47

agoolehey, I just lost my system to a crashed hard drive, and trying to install with the latest beta that was online02:11
CrashOverridejohn: Go to Application > Then first tab > then Terminal02:11
agoolewhen I try to boot it up, i just get a blank screen02:12
agooleand i can't see anything02:12
agoolejust blank02:12
EmilemiLbtw, can anyone tell me how to add the users name in front of my msg w/o writing it? :)02:12
john__this is my first time on Linux system I was so pissed at windows I killed it LOL02:12
agooleis there a good way for me to fix this ?02:12
flymanagoole most likely the graphics or not loading the partition that was in the original mbr, possible.02:12
pfred1EmilemiL what do you mean?02:12
kostkonEmilemiL, type the first 2-3 chars and then press TAB02:12
ZykoticK9agoole, if by beta you mean Lucid ask your question in #ubuntu+1 (it's common BTW, i don't know solution)02:12
agooleflyman: euh...I tried a different live cd, an older one, and it worked fine,02:12
pfred1kostkon pfft get a real mouse!02:13
john__okay  that is atl f2 right02:13
EmilemiLkostkon ah thanks02:13
brjannEmilemiL: e.g., if the ftp daemon runs as user ftp, you could chown the directory to ftp:www-data and change the permissions to 755.02:13
agooleZykoticK9: oh perfect, thanks02:13
CrashOverride!private > john__02:13
ubottujohn__, please see my private message02:13
EmilemiLbrjann: okey, well i tryed that but it didnt work for me, maybe i did something wrong. chmod 777 works tho02:14
CrashOverride!terminal > john__02:14
ubottujohn__, please see my private message02:14
CrashOverrideJohn__: that should help you with your terminal problem02:15
brjannEmilemiL: okay. just beware that isn't very secure :)02:15
flymanagoole well your vid gfx may not be supported (assuming new card or not found by ubuntu correctly) but the system may also not have been installed correctly either. You know if you're using grub(2) or lilo?02:15
EmilemiLbrjann: that's what im afraid of ;)02:15
greezmunkeyZykoticK9: Lucid is what, about four weeks away?02:15
ZykoticK9greezmunkey, 19 days until Beta 1 -- 61 days till final02:16
agooleflyman: using grub originally02:16
agooleflyman: but I lost everything02:16
agooleflyman: hard drive crashed02:16
brjannEmilemiL: what user did you chown to?02:16
flymanEmilemiL could always make a cron script to look for suspious activity or from specific user and if he/she starts trying to del everything you could stop it, bunch of scripts out their that could help depending on what daemon.02:16
EmilemiLbrjann: can i just change premissions back to 755?02:17
EmilemiLbrjann: chown to www-data i think02:17
flymanagoole when you installed was it off of internet/lan or just live cd? also did you delete the original partitions / wip the orig mbr? or do you know if it even got that far?02:17
ZykoticK9flyman, if you want to assist with agoole's issue please join #ubuntu+1 as well (he's running Lucid)02:18
EmilemiLflyman: from the safety of it all, since im the only user what safety holes do i have?02:18
brjannEmilemiL: ah. yeah, that wouldn't work. apache runs as www-data, not your ftp server. run this for me:   ps aux | grep ftpd   and tell me what user it's running as?02:18
agooleflyman: live cd, and I just swapped in a new drive, since my hard drive jsut died 2 days ago02:18
john__sudo/ect/init.d/?dm: No such file or directory02:19
EmilemiLbrjann: im bad at that, got alot of text with root and www-data02:20
Dr_Willisjohn__:  use gdm or kdm, actually use 'sudo service gdm restart' if you want to restart gdm02:20
Dr_Willisjohn__:  and use proper spaces in commands..02:20
brjannEmilemiL: what ftp server are you using?02:20

Jeffxhi all, I'm running 10.3 and I got some problem setting my network up, the change I make in /etc/network don't appear when I restart. Every time I have to run sudo ifconfig eth1 192.168.0.1 then start firestarter and the network is fine, but I need this to be automatic at boot, tried a sh script without success, is this a knows bug02:21
brjannEmilemiL: it runs as root? then there's no reason it shouldn't be able to write whereever it wants to02:21
ardchoilleJeffx: /join #ubuntu+102:22

pikeshouse88from remote machine, id like to ssh into my server and sign into my account from the UI02:28
flymank3b is good and has a decent UI02:28
pikeshouse88so that VNC can work02:28
blakkheimflyman: if you want to call qt a "decent ui"..02:28
Dr_Willisdonvito:  nero linux - i dont think has all the features and extra tools that Nero for windows does.02:30
pikeshouse88anyone know how to log in gnome ui from terminal?02:31
SrayahuBrasero has always gotten the job done for me. =D02:31
Dr_Willispikeshouse88:  for 'vnc' i normally install and set up 'vncserver' so i can 'ssh' in and run 'vncserver' - theres no need to login to the gnome desktop that way.02:31
Dr_Willispikeshouse88:  or set up gnome to auto login and autostart the vnc desktop feature02:31
Ali_nz1how can i find out if a crontab job ran?02:31
pikeshouse88by vncserver you mean package x11vnc?02:32
Ali_nz1or is there a way i can setup some sort of email reporting?02:32
blakkheimAli_nz1: for what02:32
Dr_Willispikeshouse88:  theres a dozen vncservers you can use  - I tend to use 'vnc4server'02:32
Fayehello -- is ext4 much better than ext3? I'm installing ubuntu with a home and root partition, and I'm wondering if I should make /home ext4 or leave it as ext302:32
blakkheimFaye: people have different opinions about that02:33
SrayahuFaye, I've never really experienced much difference. = /02:33
blakkheimFaye: in some cases, ext4 is slower than ext302:33
pikeshouse88i heard vnc4server doesnt show your whole workspace02:33
Ali_nz1blakkheim: a find command in crontab with -exec rm switch02:33
brjannFaye: one thing to consider is that if you create an ext3 partition, you can always mount it as ext4 if you want02:34
SrayahuFaye, blakkheim took the words out of my mouth. I was going to comment that ext3 is a bit faster and maybe more stable.02:34
blakkheimAli_nz1: you could have it send the output of a command to your email if that's what you mean02:34
Fayeok, in that case I'll leave it as ext3. Thank you!02:34
Ali_nz1blakkheim: that would work. how do i do it?02:34
blakkheimAli_nz1: ssmtp+mailx is what i use, but there are other ways02:34
ardchoilleAli_nz1: run the same find command minus the -exec rm switch and see if it finds anything.02:35
Ali_nz1blakkheim: is that a plugin?02:35
blakkheimAli_nz1: mailx and ssmtp are both packages in ubuntu that you will need to install and configure if you want to do it that way.02:35

IMTheNachoManno other option?02:42
IMTheNachoMani am still waiting for the MB to arrive and doing research right now. so comp is not built yet02:43
IzinucsNushio: then you have to work that issue out.. may by turning off acpi.. or other solution02:43
Nushiohmm, guess its time to undust the old boot parameter list02:44
Nushioat least ubuntu shows the booting logo02:44
IzinucsIMTheNachoMan: It really depends on the chipset video card etc.. to many variables to guess at02:44

IzinucsNushio: I wonder what sr1 is.. do you have more than one monitor hooked up?02:46
Nushiojust one monitor, actually02:46
Nushioi'm quite surprised it refuses to boot 'n stuff02:46
Nushiohmm02:46
NushioI think the secondary cd drive is damaged02:46

Nushiounplugging it got it to boot02:46

john__OKAY guys I have the terminal open  and I typed in sudo/etc/init.d/?dm restart and got error02:46

NushioSrayahu: dvdrom-harddrive-floppy02:47
ardchoillejohn__: someone told you how to fix that a long time ago: sudo /etc/init.d/?dm restart # where ?is a g or a k depending on which display manager tyou are using02:47
john__sudo/etc/init.d/?dm: No such file or directory02:47
Nushio(it has floppy :P)02:47
Dr_Willisjohn__:  for starters theres a SPACE btweek sudo and /etc02:48
SrayahuNushio, and you've got the Ubuntu LiveCD in DVDrom?02:48
NushioSrayahu: is that wrong?02:48
john__Ok thank like I said this is my first time on linux system02:48
Dr_Willisjohn__:  and if you want to restart gdm use 'sudo service gdm restart'  or use 'stop' or 'start'02:48
SrayahuNushio, no - but I want to cover all our bases.02:48
hdonhi all. i'm using the "pencil" animation package, but when i draw, there are lots of artifacts in the area of my cursor. how can i toggle hardware accelerated compositing? i want to see if that will help02:48
Dr_Willisjohn__:  i mentioned the SPACE thing a while back.02:48
Nushioyes, I put cd on a dvd reader, not dvd on the cd reader02:48
randomusrHas anyone heard whether blu-ray support will improve?02:48
SrayahuNushio, did you do a checksum of the CD?02:48
Dr_Willisjohn__:  why/what are you trying to do with GDM anyway?02:49
ardchoilleDr_Willis: thank you for mentioning the "service", I keep forgetting about it02:49
Izinucsrandomusr: it will... just time is all it takes02:49
Srayahurandomusr, everything eventually improves, especially in Linux.02:49
NushioSrayahu: the cd rom is fine, why does everyone always suggest starting there? >_<02:49
NushioIt booted on my laptop02:49
SrayahuNushio, because we get that a lot.02:49
Dr_Willisardchoille:  yep. :) since /etc/init.d/gdm  may not even exist in the next release. :)02:49
john__ok what I want to do Is change my 800x600 top something bigger  all it gives me is 800x600 or lower02:49
SrayahuSo it starts to boot, then crashes?02:49
ardchoilleah,ok02:49
sixofourso i am using ubuntu, and i am xfering files over from my xp pc to my lin box using samba4, well, samba4 is locking the files when  they come to the lin box, so i cannot modify or cut/paste them or anything, how can i force samba to free the permissions up, and still have file sharing?... the file permissions cannot be changed with root...02:49
Izinucsjohn__: what kind of video card do you have?02:49
randomusrI just hope that the industry execs realize how important that is. As media support improves, I suspect linux adoption will go up exponentially02:50
Srayahusixofour, did you try chown?02:50
Nushioawesome, gonna install ubuntu now02:50
Nushiothat was quick, hah02:50

sixofourSrayahu:02:50
ardchoilleDr_Willis: are they moving away from sysvinit ?02:50
Dr_Willisjohn__:   and what is star/stoping/restarting gdm having to do with this02:50
Dr_Willisardchoille:  they allready have. theres just a few traces of SysV left.02:51

Dr_Willisany 3dfx card is so old.. its amazing it still works. :)02:51
sixofourSrayahu: well the "reviced" folder is locked, and everything in it, if i take ownership, my winxp machine might not be able to modify them either, also, its huge geebees of data, not a few jpgs :P02:51
Izinucsjesse2: might be a plugin available in the repos02:52
randomusrhow is HDMI support in linux/ubuntu?02:52

Dr_Willis!3dfx02:52
ardchoilleDr_Willis: so now it's "sudo service blah start|stop|restart" ?02:52
ZykoticK9jesse2, you don't need a plugin anymore -- facebook has switched to jabber - many instructions on net for it02:52
jesse2oh! thanks02:52
jesse2i'll just make a jabber account then02:52

hdonhow can i toggle hardware accelerated window composition?02:52
Dr_Willisclaws_:  depends on what you need.02:52
SrayahuBe back soon02:52

sixofourdoes linux have a file character name limit?02:53
john__No driver to found02:53
sixofourfile name character limit*02:53
dsnydersbrjann, There is a file called ~/.configure/monitors.xml that contains the resolution gnome will use.  Mine had the wrong resolution.  After deleting the file, gnome started working again.  Kudos to the folks on #gnome.02:53
Dr_Willissixofour:  if it does.. its real real real real high. :)02:53
Izinucssixofour: not sure but it doesn't like spaces.. use underscores02:53

claws_ops02:53
claws_Dr_Willis: internet security pack02:53
Dr_Willisspaces in file names can cause headaches. Best to use Understores if you Must do such things02:53
sixofourIzinucs: well, about 300,000 files have spaces in them02:53
Dr_Willisclaws_:  that means very little. sounds like a buzzword/marketing term more then anything else.02:54
sixofourin about 30 directoriy trees02:54
Izinucssixofour: oops. you can still access them.. it just at the command like that you have to use a little different syntax02:54
Dr_Willissixofour:  be carefull when doing scripts and command line with spaces in names. It can be a bother.02:54
john__well I think I will have to find a newer card then I have a nvida card but I do not think it will work on this MB02:54
sixofouri just want to cut/paste what is already transferede, since i have to do multiple transfers02:54
Dr_Willissixofour:  most file managers handle them fine. Its when you get to the command line they can cause issues.02:55
sixofouri can copypaste, but i don't know if i have enough hd space02:55
dsnyderssixofour, wherever there is a space you have to use a backslash in front of it.02:55
Izinucssixofour: transfers of what? files? entire directories?02:55
hdonsixofour, don't listen to Izinucs, spaces in filenames are fine.02:55
sixofouri have a folder, in it is about 30 files and files, those folders have multiple folders in them aswell02:55
claws_Dr_Willis: well... let me say it this way.. AntiV and Firewall. and if there is a good 2 in 1 tool... i whould be gr8ful to know02:56
artemka1000hi.  a real linux noob here.  installed ubuntu on my vaio laptop.  seems to work great, but doesn't see/recognize my built-in SD card reader.  i did some searching on forums, but a lot of it is way above my head.  any advice where to start?02:56
sixofourfolders*02:56
Izinucshdon: sixofour didn't say they weren't fine.. just that accessing is different02:56
Dr_Willisclaws_:  dont expect 'all in one tools'     each tool tends to be set for a specific task. There are Firewall front ends.. and there are AV software02:56
Dr_Willis!firewall | claws_02:56
ubottuclaws_: Ubuntu, like any other linux  distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Uncomplicated_Firewall_ufw), or 'iptables' (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo). GUI applications such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist02:56
hdonIzinucs, what you said is irrelevant :\02:56
Dr_Willisclaws_:  i have little need for a firewall on my linux box's - and even LESS need for antivirus software. Unless i want to scan windows binaries befor i put them on a windows box.02:57
tiger_where to look for syslog about last crash info?02:57
Dr_Willisclaws_:  linux is 'not' windows. and such common things that windows needs. Just dont apply most of the time in linux.02:57
sixofourantivirus software for linux... lulwut?02:57
Dr_Willissixofour:  it exists.02:58
ARC0112358I need help with VNC client02:58
Izinucshdon: irrelevant? that accessing, copying etc from cli is different with files containing spaces? I think not02:58
Dr_Willisclamav, and avg both have linux av tools.   and proberly some more i cant think of02:58

randomusrARC0112358: what's up?02:58
ARC0112358I can see remote desktop , and control it if I watch remote monitor, but client cant see menus02:59
belakAbout how long does the alternate ubuntu install take?02:59
belakIf I know what I want for all the options...02:59
sixofourinstall depends on hd speed right?02:59
Dr_Willissixofour:  the smb config file can set the default permissions for the files.   Unless you used that user 'right click to share' feature. Not sure how you change those.02:59
coz_belak,  maybe 20 minutes or less depending on hardware02:59
randomusrARC0112358: what are the two OS' involved?02:59
ARC0112358client wont display pulldowns - its like its not refreshing at client02:59

sixofourhow do i config smb though?02:59
belakcoz_: thanks02:59
claws_Dr_Willis: good to know :) i have heard of the good security in linux... this is my 5 day on linux.. i have noticed there are big diff between ms and linux.03:00
sixofourhow do i config smb though? Dr_Willis03:00
ardchoilleclaws_: just remember, the user is the weakest link in any OS03:00
Dr_Willissixofour:  i always edit the /etc/samba/smb.conf file - but ive read the docs and have done samba by hand for years. :)03:00
randomusrARC0112358:  uninstall VNC on both, update both systems with update manager and re-install VNC. That worked for me03:00
sixofouris there no gui or command line atleast?03:00
tiger_hi, where to look for info of the last crash?03:00
Dr_Willissixofour:  i tend to just set up the HOME shares so all users have their home dir shared. I dont use 'user created' shares much03:01
ARC0112358Which program are you using?03:01
claws_ardchoille : i will :)03:01
brjanndsnyders: I have never heard of that file before in my life :D03:01

Iceman_BI just upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10, but I still cant put my desktop to 1440x900 reso to fit my monitor. Itś stuck on 1024x768, and im using the Nvidia drivers03:03
Iceman_Bhow to fix this?03:03
Holman_can anyone read this?03:03
dsnydersbrjann, the #gnome folks had me fixed up in two posts.03:03
Iceman_BHolman_, yup03:03
IzinucsIceman_B: you might try nvidia-xconfig or nvidia-settings03:03
brjanndsnyders: now you're just making me feel bad. :)03:04
randomusris there a weather plugin for COMPIZ? Like Live weather?03:04
Holman_okay thanks, when I try to load ubuntu I get error: you need to load the kernel first03:04
Iceman_BIzinucs, nvidia-xconfig returns errors, trying -settings now...03:04
Izinucsrandomusr: there's one you can add to the top bar.. right mouse click and choose add.. you'll find it.03:04
Holman_does anyone know what I should do? I have a lot of important stuff that I don't want to lose03:05
IzinucsIceman_B: have you activated the nvidia drivers?03:05
dninjawhen i compile with gcc, using the standard profiler option (-pg) and after i run my program, i get no gmon.out as expected. is this something ubuntu has disabled, like core dumps?03:05
xanguarandomusr: you are looking for a screenlet/widget/whatever is called03:05
dsnydersbrjann, Not to worry.  I'm sure those #gnome people would die to know some of the things I've seen you walk other people through.03:05
Iceman_BIzinucs, yes, I have. and the widget that comes up says CRT-1, and I cant change anything. changing the reso only makes the desktop larger03:05
Iceman_Bnot the display itself :/03:06
Holman_can anyone direct me to a chat where I might get some help?03:06
artemka1000any advice on a built-in card reader that's not working?  is there a device manager or something where i could search for the hardware?03:06

IzinucsIceman_B: is there a 173 driver also available?03:08
xanguaHolman_: do you uninstalled something¿¿03:08
Iceman_BI think so, lemme check03:08
deadlyninjabrjann, do you know if linking to libraries breaks -pg?03:08
belakHolman_: try an update-grub03:08
belakhttp://muammar.me/blog/index.php?/archives/332-error-you-need-to-load-the-linux-kernel-first.html03:08
brjanndeadlyninja: it shouldn't. give me a sec03:08
Iceman_BIzinucs, yeah. I can choose between 173, 185(now actvd), and 9603:09

xanguawizard00: open software center ;)03:10
wizard00im on ubumtu 5.10.03:10
IzinucsIceman_B: try the 173 and see what happens.. also in cli type xrandr and see if the resolution that you want comes up.. if it doesn't then you'll have to add the resolution to xrandr to make it work.03:10
coopi have an analog stereo output but sound is very low, sounds muffled, lookng for suggestions on improving sound quality03:10
belakHolman_: Oh, wait... ehh... I suppose not...03:10
wizard00that doesnt have software center.03:10
Iceman_BIzinucs, okay, Iĺl try both tips03:10
Iceman_Bbrb03:10
IzinucsIceman_B: do the 2nd first03:10
belakHolman_: when you boot, edit the line for booting and change the line with "root" in it to remove the /dev03:10

talntideverything does.03:18
brjanndninja: perhaps a dumb question, but you do have write permission in your working directory, right? :)03:18

talntidwizard00, even if your distro is outdated, if you show us the real errors it is giving, as opposed to "it doesn't work" -- we can help better03:20
talntidblakkheim, about what?03:20
blakkheimpw-toxic_: wine is not an emulator03:20
blakkheimtalntid: ubuntu needing time to learn03:20

dninjabrjann, thanks though, you helped03:20
blakkheimpw-toxic_: windows api layer03:20
brjanndninja: no problem!03:20
pw-toxic_donvito, if you are a professionall designer, i think you should use windows for working on a design ;(03:20
pw-toxic_blakkheim, yes and therfore it emulates windows?!03:21
talntidblakkheim, that's silly. are you saying you know everything there is to know about ubuntu, and you just knew it when you were born?03:21
dns53pw-toxic_ it is a wrapper that allows you to use windows programs, an emulator pretends to be a cpu etc03:21
pw-toxic_blakkheim, it makes the program feel beeing windows03:21
wizard00This program is currently not installable, but should be available in the 'universe' repository. Would you like to enable this repository? (it keeps saying that)03:21
blakkheimtalntid: i'm saying ubuntu is extremely easy to learn to use, even if you've never used linux. it hides the real os and puts up a shiny gui for newbies to use03:21
pw-toxic_dns53, emulators do not have to be on a CPU basis.. you can also emulate a child or an animal03:21
pw-toxic_donvito, what do you need photoshop for?03:22
schwertfinally managed to fix my corrupted filesystem... but the whole /usr folder got trashed in the process03:22
talntidblakkheim, then you just said my point. you do need to learn it though. I didn't say it was hard to learn, did i? :)03:22
kassykillerfaceDoes anyone know why a HP webcam-50 wouldnt work on blogtv but would on stickam?03:22
talntidwizard00, did you tell it "yes, enable it!" (or something like that?)03:22

xanguawizard00: then enable the repository :S03:22

blakkheimpw-toxic_: rsync?03:23
Dr_Willis'computers are not for the kind of people who isent willing to spend a little timne learning'03:23

brjannpw-toxic_: I've been using backintime for the last few months03:24

blakkheimpw-toxic_: is there something you prefer over it?03:25
pw-toxic_blakkheim, its not about the size of the backup, but the amount of several different backups and how to manage them03:25

atomikis it an image file i can swap out with another?03:27

Dr_Willisdetective_:  then it is in whatever directrory you were at when you ran that command03:30
atomikubuntu tweak is awesome03:31
Dr_Willisdetective_:  you could do 'sudo updatedb' then 'locate uif2iso.zip' and it should find it.03:31
joinerichas anyone else had problems with their mouse disappearing after installing the ati catalyst?03:31
detective_Dr_Willis, i tryed those commands and nothing happened03:33
Dr_Willisdetective_:   the updatedb command should of taken some time to complete. if locate then did not find it. Then you downloaded it to some directory/location that locate does not 'index' such as /media/SOMTHING03:33
pw-toxic_brjann, yes this is the program i was looking for03:34
Dr_Willisdetective_:  check your 'history' log and see where you were at.. or just redownload the file03:34
brjannpw-toxic_: glad to hear it!03:34
pw-toxic_brjann, maybe you can answer me some additional questsions: how do you use this program? do you use auto backups?03:34
pw-toxic_brjann, do you backup everything or only important data?03:34
pw-toxic_brjann, where to do you place the backup.. external HDD.. ?!03:34
nonameNNno one talks?03:35
brjannpw-toxic_: I've set it up so that my Documents/ directory is scanned every five minutes, and all the snapshots are just saved in my home directory somewhere.03:36
bazhangnonameNN, this is a support channel ; chat in #ubuntu-offtopic03:36
Dr_WillisnonameNN:  Hmm?03:36
pw-toxic_brjann, how big is your documents folder?03:36
nonameNNbazhang: thanks03:36
pw-toxic_brjann, the folders i back up are several GB and have more than 100k of files03:36
pw-toxic_brjann, i'm webdeveloper and i have LOTS of small files03:36
pw-toxic_and some bigger from design03:36
brjannpw-toxic_: That shouldn't be a problem; backintime uses rsync under the hood03:37
pw-toxic_brjann, so its no problem if there is a BIG folder where only a small part of it changes03:37
pw-toxic_hmm03:37
pw-toxic_and if it makes 3 backups03:37
pw-toxic_can i access all 3 of it?03:37
brjannpw-toxic_: nope, no problem at all. it will only copy the diffs.03:37
brjannpw-toxic_: yes. on the left hand side of the window, you can see the snapshots you've taken, and view each of them as if they're actual folders.03:38
pw-toxic_brjann, sounds really cool.. i think i use the automatic one03:38
fadakenis there a package that will ask me if i want to mount a cd/dvd and show the hidden files?03:38

I'm using fglrx for ati 4850; i've tried all drivers from 9.4 to 10.2, no improvement. what can i do besides downgrading to ubuntu 9.04 or using radeon drivers from xorg-edger's ppa?03:40
brjannpw-toxic_: launch the program and click the question mark at the top of the window03:40

acuHouston we got a problem :)  - I have used partimage to backup an entire system and I was almost to restore it - however the initial system has a bigger hard disk than the one I restore to - though it was very little used - the partimage tells me that it cannot restore the partition from image file because dthe destination hard disk is smaller than the original - any suggestions to bypass this ?03:40
Dusty_hey folks!03:40
pw-toxic_brjann, thx03:40
D3RGPS31blakkeim: i've considered buying nvidia, but i'm too poor to buy anything rite now03:40

zaneDusty_,  thanks03:45
D3RGPS31i've run into the same thing03:45
brjannpw-toxic_: it really depends on how often you're going to take snapshots. you don't want to have to scroll through 10000 snapshots just to get to last month, do you? :)03:45
Dusty_dj_segfault: well, I have a VB6 application running in WINE. It uses an ODBC connector, and I'm hooking unixODBC into wine's builtin ODBC manager, but I cant configure the basics of unixODBC right. Dno how to.03:45
pw-toxic_brjann, one per day03:45
dj_segfaultIs there a command to verify the files in a package?  I installed mythexport, but the file /etc/apache2/sites-available/mythexport.conf does not exist on my system.03:45

shiverzany hackers here ???03:46
karma_policemain pc with the files is running ubuntu03:46
brjannpw-toxic_: then you probably don't have anything to worry about. if you feel like you've got too many old snapshots, you can always turn on smart remove03:46
dj_segfaultDusty_: Ouch.  Getting wine involved is beyond me. Sorry.03:46
PeskyJkarma_police: that's real easy, use samba03:46
brjann!offtopic | shiverz03:46
ubottushiverz: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!03:46
pw-toxic_brjann, so you turn on smart remove so that you get a good overview of your snapshots - not for space reasons?03:47
shiverzk thnks03:47
karma_policei have dl samba.. what next? no GUI?03:47
Dusty_dj_segfault: well I figure it's jsut a really basic configuration error not even dealing with wine. just setting the basics up for unixODBC03:47

marc__Take a computer that have 2 network card.  the main OS (ubuntu server) is connected to the local network using eth0, can a VM use the other card (eth1) and that card would be connected to another network?03:48

sal_ pls dont remind me my back is still hurtin frm shovelin03:57
coopdj_segfault sorry for being aloof, flip has an online service to share the videos w others, so in win/ac you plug camera in usb, proprietary software organizes and uploads to share service, that sofware isnt supported on lnux03:57
dj_segfaultgoogeek: Is it an HP?03:57
PeskyJbrjann: don't think so, it's something like <cmd> <service> on|off03:58
Younderisn't the cffi darcs version stable?03:58
googeek dj_segfault: compaq, but for all intents and pourposes, yeah03:58

sal_ Hey there any one know a good  video chat program that ...clones ooo voo03:59
brjannPeskyJ: yes, that's how sysv-rc-conf works. though it may go by different names, i suppose. i've seen update-rc.d also, but I can't remember if that was ubuntu03:59
PeskyJbrjann: actually - I think I'm thinking of some command use din CentOS03:59
dj_segfaultgoogeek: I see that question all the time, and have tried to fix it myself.  I know HP did a wonky thing and has separate outputs from the sound chip for headphones and speakers, instead of using the switch in the headphone jack.  I have not heard of a solution myself.04:00
googeekdj_segfault : dammit. well, thanks anyway04:01

googeekdj_segfault : has anyone tried editing the actual alsa-base file?04:04
dsnydersphat, over the past week I've been monitoring this site there's been a large number of people with nvidia issues (myself included).  My recommendation is that if it is working don't futz with it.04:04

dsnydersphat, it was more an expression of opinion than actual help.  For all I know it will work fine.04:07

googeekbrjann: Yeah, I tried  a version of that fix, only imputing what I thought I should for my specifics, it was a no-go but maybe I'm just not doing things right, i'm still pretty much an uber noob to the world of linux.04:09

dj_segfaultstueh: Sorry, got your query mixed up with someone else.  I would use firestarter to set up routing and firewall.  Very user friendly04:16
SilverFoxI'm using gdm.  How do I make it so one of my users doesn't run gnome/kde, but instead just run an xterm.  I tried putting xterm & in ~/.xinitrc, but that seems to be ignored.  How do I go about this?04:17
stuehdj_segfault: Well, I'm installing fog imaging client on a fresh install of Ubuntu Server in a VM. Now, part of this, it uses apt-get. My network config is eth0 is an internal virtual network with no outside connection to the internet, eth1 is using eth1 on the host. Now, I have set eth0 to static, and eth1 is using dhcp. With eth0 turned off, I can use apt-get (aka run the ./install file, which uses apt-get as part of that), but I need eth0 04:17
stuehdj_segfault: That might have been a bit long, tell me where it cut off :)04:17
pw-toxic_When i move the mouse over the network icon of the gnome toolbar, it says that "Wireless Networks are disable". How can i enable them? I know here are a lot of wlan networks04:18
PeskyJpw-toxic_: click on that very same network icon and it will bring up a menu04:18
NCS_Onepw-toxic_: right click it04:19
NCS_Oneand check activate network04:19
Dr_Willisthat icon has a differnt menu on the left and right clicks - i belive04:19
pw-toxic_NCS_One, yes i did, but the entry with "enable wireless" is deactivates04:19
Dr_Willisthats a little confuseing :)04:20
Dr_Willispw-toxic_:  you dont have a switch on the machine to turn wireless on/off ?04:20
dj_segfaultstueh: It left off as "but i need eth0" but I get the idea.  The idea is your routing table dictates what port to use to reach different networks. If you type "route -n" you will see what I mean.04:20
pw-toxic_Dr_Willis, no i dont have. Its a Lenovo Thinkpad edge04:20
NCS_Onethe settings in my ~/.Xdefaults are not loaded at start, I have to open it and save it, any one know why ?04:21
pw-toxic_Dr_Willis, i have previousvily installed ubuntu inside of windows, and there networking worked04:21
Dr_Willispw-toxic_:  sure theres not some special fn-keys? or some hidden switches?04:21
pw-toxic_Dr_Willis, now i am on a clean install of ubuntu04:21
stuehbut I need eth0 turned on to run the install, as I need it to talk to another VM04:21
pw-toxic_Dr_Willis, oh . ill check this one. Good idea04:21
stuehdj_segfault: but I need eth0 turned on to run the install, as I need it to talk to another VM04:21
Dr_Willispw-toxic_:  ubuntu inside winows uses special TAP(?) devices wher its forwarding through the windows box :) so it not the same04:21
Dr_Willispw-toxic_:  on my netbook  i had to boot to windows. use the switch to make SURE the wireles was on.. then reboted to windows.04:22
ZerErr... what's the deal with an update to sudo?04:22
stuehdj_segfault: Okay, now I get it04:22
xyzhi04:22
Dr_Willisthe switch on it would turn wireless OFF but neve back on :)04:22
itaihi, i'm using karmic on a desktop, whenever i leave the computer running for more than an hour it completely locks down and i cannnot 'bring it back to life', only hard reboot works, what do?04:22
pw-toxic_Dr_Willis, yes.. the switch button doesnt work on ubuntu ;(04:22
pw-toxic_ill start windows04:22
stuehWell would you look at that04:22
Dr_Willispw-toxic_:  there may be some tweaks to make it work.04:22
dj_segfaultstueh: You can have different cards going to different networks, and even the same card going to different networks, if your network physical topology is set up that way.  But that routing table is the key, not your application.04:22
stuehThe gateway for eth1 (aka the dhcp configured eth) is not in the list O.o04:23

dsnydersHi all!  I'm having an issue with kpovmodeler.  The views are not behaving properly.  See: http://imagebin.org/85792   It's supposed to look like this: http://docs.kde.org/development/en/extragear-graphics/kpovmodeler/defaultviewlayout.png04:30
brjannitai: no, it will just tell you if there's something wrong with the memory. it just runs tests over and over verifying that the memory functions correctly.04:30
dj_segfaultstueh: No problem.  Go forth and geek out.04:30
brjannitai: if it displays errors, you need some new memory. if it's a new computer it's probably still under warranty.04:31
itaibrjann, ok , thanks04:31

brjannitai: that explains how to use boot options, and you can try the "acpi=off" option and see if that improves stability04:32

bullgardswitch10: Have a look into /var/log/syslog: '~$ mc /var/log/syslog'. Then press F3 and look for 'CRON...'.04:45

rifterwell, guys, I have a bit of a puzzler here. I've been trying to install some packages and when I do an apt-get install I get the "Couldn't find package" error message.  But I go to synaptic and not only are the packages there but they are already installed!  Obviously if they're installed I don't have a problem with that package now, but I am trying to figure out why synaptic would show something different from apt-get04:49
faronhey again everybody.hey ! can anybody tell me what a "cpu governor" is ? what it does ?04:49
bullgardanthony_: One solution is to quit your particular program window and restart it on another workspace.04:49
anthony_how do i stop my drop down menus from being covered up by the programs window?  i think it's my opengl but i really don't know.04:49
rifterone of the packages in question is gstreamer-0.10-plugins-ugly in case that helps04:49
switch10rifter: try apt-get update04:49
anthony_ok04:49
anthony_thanks04:49
switch10rifter: and then try to install04:49
rifterswitch10, yeah I did that, it didn't change anything04:49
switch10rifter: weird04:50
brjannfaron: cpu governors control how your cpu speeds up and down in response to demand04:50
hal9k20101hello all... need some help with screen setup, need to config x04:50
rifterswitch10, yeah I know.  you would think that if it shows up in synaptic, apt-get would show it, too04:50
faronhmmmmmmm could this help me with flash video & audio sych up ?04:50
acuI want to backup a 750GB hard_disk (with only 20GB occupied)  - and restore it in a smaller hard disk (300 GB hard disk) - what should I use? partimage requires at least equal hard disk with the original04:51
switch10rifter: what are you trying to install?04:51
rifterswitch10, so really now I am worried that I have somehow broken apt and need to fix it04:51
anthony_it didn't work.  :(  does the same thing.04:51
bullgardrifter: I do not know why Synaptic's and apt-get's results differ. You need to observe more carefully both programs outputs.04:51
pw-toxic_does someone know how i can customize the behavior of the window titlebar double click? i want the double click to force a window maximize04:51
brjannfaron: probably not -- you can try turning on the performance governor to guarantee full speed at all times, but i doubt it will help with flash04:51
switch10acu: use rsync04:51
dsnydersrifter, can synaptic and apt-get hav different sets of repositories?04:51
rifterswitch10, well several media packages, but one of the ones in question is  gstreamer-0.10-plugins-ugly which does show up in synaptic as installed but apt-get install shows  "Couldn't find package"04:52
faronYou have any ideas about what I can do about that04:52
seanbrystoneacu, or the GUI version of rsync, grsync04:52
pw-toxic_im sorry.. this was an emeral option i have set up myself04:52
bullgarddsnyders: No.04:52
faron?Others with the same ram seem to have no probs with flash04:52
switch10rifter: see if you can find it with aptitude search04:52
acuseanbrystone: so if I want to backup the disk with the operating system - should I boot with a live system - Knoppix or somehting04:53
anthony_any other ideas?04:53
Remmazewhy cant we talk to the bots?04:53
Remmazejust wondering....04:53
faronwhy can't you talk to the bots ?04:54
ZykoticK9Remmaze, sort of a one sided conversation04:54
seanbrystoneacu ive never done whole-disk backup, so im prolly not the one to ask about that :D04:54
bazhangRemmaze, you can; but /msg ubottu to do so04:54
faronI do04:54
rifterdsnyders, well, know that when I check system -> administration -> software sources I have the same sources as are in sources.list and the .list files I have under /etc/apt/sources.list.d as far as I can tell04:54
=== Guest47739 is now known as flea
faronthey don't really talk back much but well,you know heh heh04:54
faronrobots,huh ? Go figure04:55
faronheh heh04:55
bazhangfaron, sure ubottu does; /msg ubottu info packagename for example04:55
rifterswitch10, no joy on aptitude search04:55
ZykoticK9acu, you might want to check out http://clonezilla.org/ which is a livecd that does disk imaging04:55
dsnydersrifter, I was just trying to find a reason why they might have different software.  Apparently they use the same list, so that idea is out the window.04:55
brjannfaron: no, sorry, I don't know much about flash troubleshooting.04:55
bullgardSynaptic: "The DEB program package »openoffice.org-emailmerge« contains a component which allows OpenOffice.org to "mail merge" to E-Mail." What does it mean 'to mail merge to E-Mail'?04:56
faronwell,thks anywy friend04:56
brjannfaron: no problem, good luck :)04:56
seanbrystoneZykoticK9, but doesnt clonezilla require the destination to be as big as the source?04:56
rifterdsnyders, yeah and I just checked settings -> repositories under synaptic and it shows the same software sources dialog with the same sources04:56
ZykoticK9seanbrystone, i'd imagine so yes04:56
Flamjava04:56
ZykoticK9seanbrystone, it does to compression as well04:56
anthony_ok then...04:56
seanbrystoneZykoticK9, he didnt want that though, remember he said partimage was that way too :)04:57
ZykoticK9seanbrystone, sorry i actually just caught the tail end, and jumped in -- don't know the history at all04:57
seanbrystoneno worries :D04:57

FlamMy Movie Player program plays online radios and videos properly, but the youtube feature plays without sound.  Anyone know why?04:58
switch10rifter: have you tried installing it with synaptic?04:59
acuZykotick9: thanks I just look at clonezilla - seems cool - the only limitation is that the target partition should be at least equal to the original  - thanks anhouw - seanbrystone is very perceptive :)04:59
rifterswitch10, synaptic says I already have it installed05:00
pw-toxic_arr ubuntu is really nice ;)05:00
rifterdsnyders, actually I look in http://packages.ubuntu.com/search and it doesn't find the package there ... so...05:01

rifterbullgard mail merge takes a set of information from tables in a spreadsheet/database and plugs t into points in a document so you can make like form letters05:10
rifterbullgard, so for instans you could have a letter that says dear [name] and it would set up a set of documents that put a name in each copy05:11

rifterbullgard and http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/OOoAuthors_User_Manual/Writer_Guide/Using_Mail_Merge05:12
bullgardrifter: Very good. I am hurrying to read this article.05:12
Boots32Msymlinks is command line based05:13
Boots32MIs there something like that with its own gui05:13
rifterbullgard, basically fields in your document will refer to fields in the database or spreadsheet, so you could have things like name, address, phone number, favorite color, whatever, and then you relate those fields in your document to the fields in your data source and it plugs them in05:14
bullgardrifter: Yes. I remember that WordStar implemented such a function.05:16

joshuahlinuxpjc780: that depends on if your computer has a bluetooth card in it, if it doesn't, you need the adapter to use bluetooth05:53
abhra@faron i'm not sure.i never tried xubuntu05:53

psycho_oreoswell normally sudo shouldn't fail because you'll be executing that command as root06:08

sabatit's a radeon xpress 200m, nothing great I know09:39
ardchoillelinuxpjc780: you're installing these from the command line or from synatpic right? you're not downloading packages from archive.ubuntu.com?09:39
ardchoillelinuxpjc780: yes09:39
Curly_QArdchoille, is that your server that I read that article? Looks pretty good.09:39
linuxpjc780ardchoille - when you say "synaptic", are talking about Terminal?09:39
aanyone?09:39
ardchoilleCurly_Q: no, it's my blog at blogspot09:39
Curly_QI see. Thanks for that article.09:40
ardchoillelinuxpjc780: no, synaptic is a gui for installing packages: System Administration > Synaptic09:40
sabatwhat is the proper method to update to the newest or more stable drivers? the current ones are not working properly, so I was going to try that first.09:40
morphardchoille, im trying to read an encrypted email from launchpad09:40
morphi couldnt read it in gmail09:40
sabatI already ran the general ubuntu updates.09:40
morphwhich is why im trying to install this crpa09:40
darolusabat: what kind of video card do you have?09:42
darolusabat: what drivers are you trying to update? (I asumed video card sry)09:42
Curly_QI noticed that when installing Ubuntu, it showed that BSD was being installed and Debian. What is that all about?09:42
sabatIt's a ati radeon 200m09:43
HaffeWouldn't that be packages from BSD and Debian?09:43
sabatit's built into my laptop09:43
Curly_QPossibly.09:43
daroluCurly_Q: you can expect to find the name "Debian" a lot, Ubuntu is based on Debian; about BSD.. you probably saw a BSD licensed software09:43
ardchoilleCurly_Q: there are some packages based on BSD and debian code09:43
Curly_QI see. Thanks.09:43
sabatI can run 3d games in windows fine, I don't run anything hardcore. but like, even quake won't do opengl properly, so I assumed maybe a video driver update would help09:44
ardchoille!info bsdutils09:44
ubottubsdutils (source: util-linux (2.16-1ubuntu5)): Basic utilities from 4.4BSD-Lite. In component main, is required. Version 1:2.16-1ubuntu5 (karmic), package size 75 kB, installed size 200 kB09:44
linuxpjc780ardchoille & almoxarife - OK, right.  Synaptic is definitely easier.  But if I ran the command in Terminal, and once it finishes installing - where do I access rkhunter and chkrootkit now?  In what directory were the applications placed?09:44
sabathow can I tell what version of video driver I am using? and any chance someone knows what the latest ati is?09:44
darolusabat: are you sure that's the video card model? I can't find it09:44
ardchoillelinuxpjc780: those two are command line apps, yuou'll need to run them in a terminal. and I recommend reading their man pages too09:45
darolusabat: open a terminal and type: lspci | grep VGA09:45
ardchoille[01:37] <ardchoille> sabat: lspci | grep -i VGA09:45
Curly_QWhat is the best IRC Client besides Mirc with Linux these days? I have used BitchX.09:45
ardchoilleCurly_Q: many folks use xchat, some use irssi (text-based)09:46

ubottuCurly_Q: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.09:46

linuxpjc780ardchoille - OK, so I ran the install command for them in Terminal.  Where do I get their manual [pages] - to know how to use them in Terminal (i.e. what commands to enter)?09:47
sabatI'm using xchat, but in windows I normally use mirc09:48
sabatI used to use bitchx with the crackrock addon, miss that.09:48

darolusabat: sorry, your video card is not supported for newest xorg version; ATI stopped supporting your card (among others) on february 200909:48
darolusabat: this is the "legacy driver" webpage: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Legacy/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx?type=2.7&product=2.7.4.3.3.3.1&lang=English09:49

Curly_QI am using Pirch98 right now. It is one of the best IRC Clients I have ever used. I am looking forward to using Xchat again and others.09:49
sabatso, does that mean I am SOL, or that I need to install an older driver or what09:49
basajaunhttp://pastebin.com/GrnB6rQf Can somebody have a look at tis and help me sort out the mount mess09:49
darolusabat: if you want to use the proprietary driver, you can install Ubuntu 8.04; not sure if installing and old kernel/xserver would work09:49
sarthorHi, in ubuntu, i fix 3 lan cards, and ubunntu give name to that lan cards like, eth0, eth1, eth2, Now i remove the 2 lan cards, and only one eth2 remaining, How can i change this eth2 to eth0, from where we can change or clear these ethX name,09:50
frogzoo/etc/iftab09:51
sabatif I install 8.04, and run the updates, will it mess up that driver do you think?09:51
ardchoillelinuxpjc780: the first thing you should dl with rkhunter is run these two commands: sudo rkhunter --update09:51
Curly_QI have seen software that utilizes a Web based program that connects to IRC. Is there one for Linux?09:51
ardchoillelinuxpjc780: sudo rkhunter --propupd09:51
darolusabat: no, it means you need older Linux kernel and Xserver; if you absolutely need to use the proprietary driver install Ubuntu 8.04 LTS; a lot of us are really upset about ATI not supporting our video cards anymore =( anyways the open driver is not bad09:51
darolusabat: No, it wont' mess it up09:51

vegar_A desktop machine with several users runs 9.10. The users do not have sudo privileges and should not have it either. The machine has two ntfs partitions which the users should be able to mount e.g by clicking the partition name in "Places"09:57
sarthorllutz, thanks bro.09:57
linuxpjc780ardchoille - can you help me configure Firestarter, now that I have it installed?  I am on a wireless connection via a router ...09:57
vegar_However, this does not work since I'm guessing internal drives need sudo to mount09:57
ardchoillelinuxpjc780: I don't use it09:57
vegar_how can the regular desktop users mount the partitions? what is the recommended way?09:57

linuxpjc780almoxarife - I don't get "wlan(x)" for options in the "Detected Devices" drop-down in the wizard ...  Does this mean the software hasn't detected my wireless connection?  If so, how do I get it to do so?10:20

madjoeI plan to make it a real installation... Wubi is an implementation for Windows to run Ubuntu like a program, lot's of risks, simple defragg of NTFS brings system down, bad performance, hard recovery, bad support.10:23

almoxarifemadjoe: I am waiting for the wubi 10.4 also, suppose to be able to fake it with betas10:24

Dr_Willis_actually if they are ntfs - the gvfs may have them mounted/inuse.12:21
Dr_Willis_You could use gparted to delete the ones you want to use. and lket the installer remake partions in the unallocated space12:21
frankS2erUSUL: i want to rm all of them and use them in linux12:21
frankS2erUSUL: just need to fix the hd, cuz i cant use them now heh12:21

erUSULabhi_nav: it can be any folder. i'm saying what ubuntu uses for the home encription i case you want to use the same12:23
stdiseaselinduxed, well the usb-storage kernel module is probably loaded now, if that does nothing it's probably another driver that should be loaded12:23

abhi_naverUSUL i want to share my home folder with frends. but want to lock that only one folder. all other folder wll be accesd.12:24

mylisto2Just got back from work, went to jump on skype and yahoo (pidgin)...12:26
erUSULabhi_nav: i undesrtand. but your home folder has your configuration files etc... trust me it is easier and safer to just create a /home/shared folder to share the things you want to share with other users12:26
mylisto2yahoo won't stay open..it opens then closes automatically..12:26
mylisto2and skype is doing the same thign basically12:26

mylisto2stdisease: what do you mean?12:33
stdiseasemylisto2, from terminal, 'sudo aptitude'12:33

vilinyhttp://packages.ubuntu.com/sl/dapper/libc6-udeb12:34
stdiseasenexsja, booted into another kernel version? you'll have to reinstall the nvidia driver12:34
nexsjai've downloaded 190 drivers from nvidia website, though i can't install them, says something about my gcc-4.4 version and that i don't have my kernel sources12:34
nexsjastdisease, yes, i've recently updated the kernel version12:34
nexsjathought that would be a good idea :/12:35
pw-toxic_hi.. my computer is in suspend mode, and i cant leave the suspend mode anymore. Pressing the power button doesnt do anything. Any ideas?12:35
stdiseasenexsja, install kernel sources or headers and use 'CC=gcc-4.3 sh NVIDIA-installer-xxx.sh'12:35
mylisto2phpmonk: how would I know if its a font problem?12:35
vilinyyour compiler is 4.4 while it wants 4.2, you can just bypass that12:35
Gyjfhey i have some problem with compiz, i use the wall and after update i cant drag windows between desktops12:35
pw-toxic_without suspend mode, my notebook is senseless12:35
vianocturna85wonder if anyone can make sense of this: im running karmic and keep getting 'partial update' option, when clicking on it it wants to upgrade my distro?12:35
soreaunexsja: When you use a different method other than the ubuntu provided method (sys>admin>hardware drivers) you will have to reinstall the nvidia driver after each kernel update12:36
nexsjasoreau, thank you, got that :) now, all i need to do is download the new kernel sources?12:36
stdiseasenexsja, CC=gcc-4.3 assuming the kernel was compiled with gcc 4.3.x , if the kernel was compiled with another version of course you'll have to pass what's appropriate like viliny said12:36
yonhello i require some help with Samba...  i have a folder that i want to share to everyone on the netowrk but only i can edit12:36
soreauGyjf: Is ccsm>Wall>Edge Flipping>Edge Flip Move enabled?12:37
yonIf i use Write List = yon and read only = yes i can access it but cannot create files12:37
nexsjadoes uname -a show my kernel version?12:37
vilinyuname -r12:37
soreaunexsja: uname -r and you probably just need to install the kernel headers12:38
nexsjaPackage kernel-headers is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source12:38
vilinynexsja, each and every kernel version has it's own header12:39
GyjfThankyou soreau, it worked!12:39

stdiseaselantizia, which i386 packages do you need installed? The 32-bit compatibility stuff? you don't need i386 repo for that fyi12:40
lantiziadamnn, did you format it fatx?12:40
damnnlantizia, no it's ntfs12:41

yonPLz help :)12:41
nexsjaviliny, i've downloaded 2.6.32 kernel sources and extracting them now, then, when i'm installing new drivers i need to do --kernel-source-path <path_to_source>, right?12:42
vilinynexsja, you can download deb packages too12:42
vilinysuch a timesaver12:42
damnnstdisease, it does not work either12:42
stdiseaseviliny,  I think the source/header debs are borken for nexsja12:42

vilinynexsja, http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/12:42
ManiDhillondamn use #sudo fdisk -l to check the table first12:43
nexsjastdisease, so... i need to install something, or just downloading the kernel sources and directing nvidia installer to them will be enough?12:44
DelphiWorldhi all12:44
stdiseasenexsja, you will need to copy the config file from under /boot to the extracted directory src-linux/.config and then 'make prepare' before you'll be able to use it12:44
DelphiWorldplease how do i chmod a directory with all files/sub directorys?12:44
erUSULDelphiWorld: which directory ?12:45
yonchmod *user* -R *directory*12:45
DelphiWorlderUSUL: /usr/local/freeswitch12:45
erUSULyon: chmod does not accpt user as parameter12:45
stdiseasenexsja, it's best if you figure out a way to install kernel headers/sources from the apt system, though12:45
DelphiWorlderUSUL: i want to chmod it to 77712:45
yonmy bad chown i was thingking of12:46
yon:P12:46
pw-toxic_how can i reaload the fstab ?12:46

bcjHas anyone had experience with a failing hard drive causing shred to fall over and backtrace?12:46
erUSULpw-toxic_: sudo mount -o remount -a12:46
vilinynexsja, easiest would be to use http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ to download a new kernel and the appropriate headers and update-grub to make your grub include the new installed kernel when you boot next time and then go ahead and install the nvidia drivers and just answer no when it complains about gcc compiler version and you're set :)12:46
DelphiWorlderUSUL, using winSCP... to edit some files, but i need to sudo and i can't sudo from winSCP12:47
