WubuntuI have a Nvidia GeForce4 MX 420 video card that gives me screen resolution problems with Ubuntu 9.10. Can anyone please off me any assistance with this problem?00:01
brjannsensae: you should be able to use     sudo gdm stop00:02
garholwubuntu: i'm on the 440mx. what problems you having?00:02
Wubuntueven with the proprietary driver,...i have to change screen resolution each time i reboot00:02
sensaebrjann: Nope00:02
ElroxLoren_Semple, yes?00:03
brjannsensae: oh, damn, my fault. i meant   sudo service gdm stop00:03
Loren_SempleElrox: I just got back, wondering if that problem got solved where Ubuntu fails to load (see the splash, but after splash computer stops loading screen goes blank and can't do ctrl alt f1) ??00:03
garholWubuntu: I had this problem before. I fixed it by running the proprietary app with gksudo and then saving the settings. it's a permissions thing if i remember00:03

sciviwubuntu use synapic package manager to install nvidia-settings00:05
shannonbrimerthat was odd00:06
Wubuntui already have the nvidia-settings manager00:06
Wubuntuthis card doesn't seem to save the resolution to Xorg00:06
scivik run it in root mode00:06
garholWubuntu: once you are using the proprietoty driver then nvidia-settings should be available00:06
icerootWubuntu: that is not part of the card00:06
garholWubuntu: that's correct. that's where it was going wrong with me00:06
icerootWubuntu: also, on karmic there is not xorg.conf00:07
garholWubuntu: xorg got removed in 9.10 so there was a bit of a workaround to get nvidia-settings to create the corret file00:07
lantiziaHey how do I swap between NTSC/PAL for TV Out?  (no theres no proprietary drivers)00:08
garholWubuntu: like iceroot said :)00:08
DBeetswhat replaced xorg.conf?00:08
JrodDCxlantizia:  let me guess a ATI card ?00:08
lantiziaIt detects my TV and I see it in System | Preferences | Display00:08
lantiziaJrodDCx, no Intel00:08
lantiziaIt even sends output to my TV and the Fn+CRT/LCD button works00:09
lantiziaBut it's sending NTSC instead of PAL00:09
brjannWubuntu: I don't know if this is your problem, but another user was having similar issues the other day. someone in #gnome told him to   mv ~/.configure/monitors.xml ~/.configure/monitors.xml.bak    and restart gnome00:09
garholWubuntu: create a blank xorg.conf then the settings can be written in there by the nvidia app.00:10
garholWubuntu: there isn't one as default but when there is one it gets read (if i am reading back correctly)00:10
lantiziaIs there meant to be a built in option for configuring TV Out?00:10

ActionParsnipClaptrap: strange works great here. Different systems I guess01:33
claptrapActionParsnip: Well, it works as far as Flash games themselves are concerned. The issues were with a specific site (Kongregate.com)01:33
histonewclimb: its a built in touchscreen?01:33
claptrapActionParsnip: It uses a seperate domain server for Chat and website achivements, and for whatever reason, 64 bit flash didn't like to communicate with the java applets.01:34
ActionParsnipClaptrap: I play cyclomaniac on there. I use flashblock in chromium daily and block all flash except the game01:34
histonewclimb: I see there are fan issues with your laptop in ubuntu01:34
claptrapActionParsnip: Really now.01:34
ActionParsnipClaptrap: totally01:34
histonewclimb: but i'm not seeing anything regarding a touchscreen on that model01:34
ActionParsnipClaptrap: also 64bit java using the file at www.java.com01:35
NitaiPalhisto, what are the major differences between 64 bit and 32 bit anywyas01:35
claptrapActionParsnip: That's... interesting. :E I tried Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Seamonkey to no avail.01:35
ActionParsnipClaptrap: nspluginwrapper sucks for me01:35
ActionParsnipClaptrap: I use chromium from the daily build ppa01:35
histo!64bit | NitaiPal01:35
ubottuNitaiPal: AMD64 and EMT64 are fully supported architectures on Ubuntu. See http://tinyurl.com/3jkole and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amd64 for more information.01:35
NewWorldNitaiPal:  Compatibility. Some things don't work on 64 bit that do on 32 bit. 32bit is more compatible and better supported.01:35
claptrapActionParsnip: D'you think I need 64 bit on both sides for it to work correctly, then?01:36
Dr_WillisI can only think of One app thats not on 64bit thats on 32. that i would use. :)01:36
syn-ackclaptrap: nope01:36
NitaiPalso why 64 bit NewWorld ? no reason to right?01:36
garholtarehart: sudo apt-get install gsynaptics  then turn down the minspead in there to slow. that should fix it01:36
claptrapActionParsnip: Also, are youh having issues with flickering?01:36
ActionParsnipClaptrap: nspluginwrapper should handle it01:36
Dr_Willis64bit is faster in a great many tasks. and improveing all the time01:37
garholtarehart: sorry, should be minspeed01:37
ActionParsnipClaptrap: not here01:37
NewWorldNitaiPal:  Some argue it's faster at certain tasks, like the professional kind - video editing, number crunching,etc.01:37
claptrapActionParsnip: You on Karmic?01:37
ActionParsnipClaptrap: lucid a3 but was identical in karmic01:37
Dr_WillisGiven the CPU load just to play back some videos with some codecs.. its getting more and more noticeable01:37
tarehartgarhol: that worked, thanks!01:37
NitaiPalNewWorld, nothing to do with better graphics and such right?01:37
syn-ackNewWorld: that's because under the right circumstances is is faster01:37
devdzhello im new with linux.. which commands to use to know which computers are interacting with any wireless01:37
GoSoxi'm using KDE, how can i find out how much RAM a system has installed?01:37
claptrapActionParsnip: Well, my bit of Googling has said it's been fixed in Lucid. I'm not comfortable enough to touch an alpha, though. :<01:38
LavaEagleActionParsnip:  I'm not even able to install it so it can wine about reps.  If I found the source and compiled it?01:38
ActionParsnipDevdz: your router will tell you01:38
garholtarehart: splendid :) have fun01:38
NewWorldNitaiPal:  I'm not sure about that sorry.01:38
syn-ackNitaiPal: the main reason you'd want to use 64 bit over 32 imo is because it natively handles more than 4 gigs of ram01:38
tarehartand wow, xorg.conf is really minimal these days01:38
Dr_Willistarehart:  some of my systems have no xorg.conf01:38
syn-acktarehart: Dbus FTW01:38
garholtarehart: yup, been a few people on tonight with nvidia issues andthe lack of xorg has thrown them a bit01:39
syn-ackyeah, my systems don't have configs either01:39
ActionParsniplavaeagle: you will need to force install it. If you have ia32-libs installed it will run01:39
Dr_WillisNitaiPal:  theres benchmarks on 64 vs 32 - dpending on what you do - you may want 64. I use 64 on all my machines01:39
ActionParsnipLavaeagle: is there not a ppa with a 64bit build?01:39
NitaiPalDr_Willis, i just do simple browsing and watching movies and such ... which is better for me?01:40
syn-ackNitaiPal: in your case probably 32 bit01:40
NewWorldNitaiPal:  I'd say definetly 32bit, don't hassle yourself with 6401:40
Dr_WillisNitaiPal:  some video codecs these days can really suck down the cpu.01:40
NitaiPalDr_Willis, so 32 bit wud b better for my CPU?01:40
Dr_WillisNitaiPal:  if you got more then 4 gb ram - GO 64  - if You do video reencoding go 64..01:40
LavaEagleActionParsnip:  No this seems to be 32bit only01:41
Dr_WillisIf you got a low end cpu/system that can do 64 and watch HD movies.. well it may be a benifit also01:41
syn-ackoh yeah01:41
ActionParsnipNitaipal: you can use pae in 32bit if you have more than 4gb ram01:41
syn-ackActionParsnip: pae sucks, compared to native handling01:41
devdzokay what are the main commands to communicate with a router please i mean to know what the router is doing in a moment01:41
NitaiPalActionParsnip, whats pae?01:41
ActionParsnipLavaeagle: have you checked the ppa seach?01:41
ActionParsnipNitaipal: it breaks the ram up to allow the kernel to access more ram01:42
LavaEagleActionParsnip: how would I go about doing that?  Software/Synaptic ?01:42
syn-ackActionParsnip: Honestly dude, imo its merely an ugly hack01:42
ActionParsnip!pae | nitaipal01:42
ActionParsnipSyn-ack: it works though01:42
syn-ackActionParsnip: if you have the resources to do native 64 bit addressing it's better to just do that instead of using a hack01:43
syn-ackagain, imo01:43
claptrapThis is why I lurk in here.01:43
ActionParsnipSyn-ack: true but if 32bit is advantageous to the user otherwise then pae is fine01:43
NitaiPalis there a command to find out all the specs of my comp01:44
syn-ackNitaiPal: cat /proc/cpuinfo01:44
histoNitaiPal: lshw01:44
syn-ackNitaiPal: lshw, lspci etc01:44
ActionParsnipNitaipal: lspci; cat /proc/cpuinfo | tail -n 20 | grep model01:45
ActionParsnipnitaipal: works for single core :)01:45

syn-ackNitaiPal: that's really not a bad system01:58
Dr_WillisI dont see how 'fan speed' is going to be related to the 64/32 bits01:58

For digital cards: Me-TV (GNOME), Klear (KDE), dvb-utils. For both analog and digital cards, !MythTV is a powerful framework. Your card may work the !IVTV drivers. See also !TV-Out01:59

Dr_Williskerebrus:  also depending on the network setup you might NOT beable to access the machine via name. it may need ip#'s02:01
NitaiPalActionParsnip, can u explain what u just said ... 64 bit is better for my cpu fan?02:01
syn-ackNitaiPal: irrelevant02:02
ActionParsnipNitaipal: the number of bits is moot. You need to find guides relating to your system model to see if anyone has found a way to control the fan speed02:02
syn-ackActionParsnip: it most certainly does.02:02
ActionParsnipSyn-ack: how so?02:03
Dr_WillisIf the fan is not spported in teh bios/kernel - then the  64/32 dont matter at all.02:03
syn-ackit's more than likely as simple as redirecting something to /proc even02:03
syn-ackActionParsnip: I was referring to fan control02:03

stoojOK. Will let you know, ActionParsnip02:39
magn3tsDr_Willis, gsynaptics has been around for years though. I remember it being around in 8.0402:39
syn-ackmagn3ts: there have been a lot of subsystem changes since then its really been hit and miss02:39
BayAreasyn-ack: ok. i'm not sure what those value are. this is going directly to my cable modem (via DHCP from comcast)02:39
Dr_Willismagn3ts:  yes.. and X has been dojng a lot of Input devices changes in the last year or so. that  required the gsynaptics tools and other similer tools to do things differntly02:40
syn-ackBayArea: did you cycle the modem?02:40
Dr_Willismagn3ts:  i recall some docs/articals on it at the gsynaptics homepage02:40
DJ_HaMsTaAny idea on how to change the port number in 9.10 ?02:40
BayAreasyn-ack: works fine when I plug the cable into my mac (this computer)02:40
DJ_HaMsTafor remote desktop**02:40
syn-ackBayArea: it could be that the modem is still learned to the old MAC02:40
tzeentchhisto : Yes it is.  Could it be because I screwed up /etc/gdm/Init/Default ?02:40
magn3tsGah, someday when I'm not writing this J2EE crap I'm going to patch gnome-mouse-preferences so that it has the options that gsynpatics has02:40
syn-ackBayArea: thats why, plug it into the other computer and cycle the modem02:40
histotzeentch: the other directory to check is .gnome02:41
BayAreasyn-ack: ok, gunna log me off then. thanks for your help, mate! you too ActionParsnip02:41
histotzeentch: you can try using gnome-session-save to save settings02:41
Dr_Willismagn3ts:  i was thiniing at one time gsynaptics was going to be discontinued. i think some variants on it have died off.  But i dont use it any more sohavent paied attention to it02:41
histotzeentch: perhaps its a problem with that being called02:42
tzeentchhisto : I don't have a .gnome.  I got a .gnome2 and a .gnome2_private which are 700 and which I own.02:42
magn3tsDr_Willis, thats a shame. 9.10 has been very disappointing in a lot of ways. as I mentioned, X11 refuses to use my cursor theme, I can't even make it show up in gnome-appearance-preferences. I can't configure GDM, there are less screensavers that I still can not configure, etc. very frustrating.02:42
histotzeentch: try changing settings and running gnome-session-save in terminal then log out and back in see if that works02:42
syn-ackmagn3ts: all politics aside, I wasnt impressed with 9.10. 10.04 will be different story though02:43
histotzeentch: actually disregard that02:43
Dr_Willismagn3ts:  dont blame 9.10 for changes made by the X devs - and the gnome devs..  screensavers have been a point of argument for ages.  again thats GNOME devs stuff..02:43

ActionParsnipNolan2: sup02:48
magn3tshisto, yeah but I know that the simple but powerful GUI for compiz now would be obliterated if put into GNOME core02:48
* ActionParsnip prefers openbox to compiz02:49
Dr_WillisSimple GUI for compiz? what one are you refering to?02:49
syn-ackmagn3ts: I'm one of the anti-gnome-3ers out there and I'm already migrating all my systems over to XFCE02:49
Dr_WillisTheres the idiot-friendly one and the nightmarish one...02:49
Nolan2Oh, that link you gave me up there didn't really help ActionParsnip.02:49
ActionParsnipNolan2: what is your issue?02:49
magn3tsDr_Willis, well maybe simple wasn't the right word, but coherent at least. I think its pretty standard how things are done but its still very very configurable02:49
Dr_WillisI think compiz needs a tool to print out all the keybindings that are in USE for a given setup. :)02:50
Dr_Willisbut theres only like 4 features i use in compiz02:50

GeekSquidryanrhee90: if you upgrade from LTS 8.04 to LTS 10.04, just about every file on the server is going to be replaced, except for your data, essentially cleaning it too, I;d change some passwords, clean up some SQL tables and get the latest DNS data, but other than that, I think you'd be good to go04:44

pangolin_rollinanyone have gps experience?04:53
fivetwentysixbrjann: Hey would you know how to overwrite the boot loader for my pc at home, I want to install linux on it since i got 3 harddrives, 2 of which are empty, however it's a dell xps 9000 and I cant seem to be able to boot from cd :-(04:54

brjannfivetwentysix: and you can't reorder the boot devices in the BIOS setup?04:55
arandIron_Man: If you simply run "gnome-power-statistics" from the alt+F2 prompt you should et some battery info, provided they are detected correctly04:55
fivetwentysixbrjann: There is no bios setup04:55
gilbertthebrainCould someone tell me if Ubuntu is DEB or rpm based?04:56
MrPocketsmy nutty install went and changed a buncha stuff to crazy language in a crazy font04:56
GeekSquidryanrhee90: for httpd.conf blanking it would be fine, whereas deleting it would be a bad idea, as for php.ini it will be replaced by the next version of php4 or 5 ... apache is a server .. php is a set of libraries that allow for parsing of php data, I don't consider them applications, I consider the webapps that exist within the webroot the application and the infrastructure that allows that to be served is the LAMP stack ... follow?04:56
Jon-fivetwentysix: There is... no.. BIOS setup?04:57
brjannfivetwentysix: really? i've never seen a dell that didn't have a BIOS setup you could get to by wailing on F2 while the logo was onscreen04:57
airtonixgilbertthebrain, ubuntu is based on debian...04:57
rwwgilbertthebrain: deb04:57
brjannfivetwentysix: similarly i've always been able to get to a boot options prompt by hitting F1104:58
ryanrhee90hrm. okay. well web apps are independent, i can just remove their directory. I'm talking more like ... apache itself, for example. i'd rather just delete any trace of apache2 on my machine and re-install it using apt-get, cuz i'm almost certain i've hacked it to the point of no return. same with ... mysql. or... shorewall, bind9, etc etc04:58
sloopywhere is the /etc/rc.d dir hidden in 9.10?04:58
DarkSpiritWhich are the big Linux Oses?04:58
fivetwentysixbrjann: Well either it doesn't recognize my keyboard early enough for me to go into the bios menu or it just doesn't have one; I've tried rebooting hundreds of times.04:58
* pangolin_rollin waves04:59
fivetwentysixbrjann: razer arctosa keyboard04:59
brjannDarkSpirit: http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=major04:59
dsnyderssloopy, /etc/rc*04:59
brjannfivetwentysix: not familiar with it. i'd say you'd probably be better off finding a cheap keyboard to let you into the boot menu than trying to jack with your boot record so you can install linux :) however, you could also try wubi and install from windows05:00
sloopydsnyders, yes the 0-6 dir's are there but no rc.d05:00
ryanrhee90GeekSquid: hrm... for example, i'm guessing that "apt-get remove apache2" won't delete httpd.conf. if i do apt-get install apache2 after removing, i'm guessing that the configuration files will still be there. true?05:00
brjann!wubi | fivetwentysix05:00
ubottufivetwentysix: Wubi is an Ubuntu installer for Windows users that allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu like a Windows application, in a simple and safe way. http://wubi-installer.org/support.php and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide for troubleshooting. Please  file bugs at http://launchpad.net/wubi/+filebug.05:00
pangolin_rollinanyone have an extensive knowledge of either GPS or fingerprint readers? i need help with both05:00
dsnyderssloopy, there is no rc.d05:00
sloopydsnyders, so where to put stuff that usually goes in it?05:01
fivetwentysixbrjann: I don't want to install something where it doesn't give me full hardware support05:01
fivetwentysixbrjann: i rather just install it on a VM05:01
fivetwentysixbrjann: if that's the case05:01
Jon-ubottu: You guys still recommend Wubi? I remember like 3-4 months ago I was a Ubuntu green dude, installed with Wubi, worked great, week later, GRUB update, boot loader was SCREWED. What an oversight =/05:01
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)05:01
dsnyderssloopy, It's been a while.  What normally goes in rc.d05:02
fivetwentysixlol @ ubottu05:02
Jon-Printer issue, please see http://paste.ubuntu.com/386073/  Please, someone at least tell me it's only a compatibility issue so I can frown and move on haha05:02
fivetwentysix!lol | fivetwentysix05:02
ubottufivetwentysix, please see my private message05:02
Jon-I like talking to bots05:02
sloopydsnyders, yeah its been years since i have had to update my router... i dont play with the low level stuff anymore :'(05:02
GeekSquidryanrhee90: I don't believe in no return .. but anyway .. if you wanted to truly get rid of the lamp stack (for instance) sudo tasksel remove --purge lamp-server would really get rid of everything, then i'd be just a matter of reinstalling the lamp stack, ... your example is ok, however it doesn't get rid of the configs unless you do sudo apt-get remove --purge apache2 ... follow?05:02
duncanidaho1Why does DESKTOP DRAPES not startup when my computer restarts?  It is listed in my startup applications.  It is also set to do so in its preferences.05:02
ryanrhee90GeekSquid: Purge! okay. i'll do that. thanks! :)05:03
arandJon-: I have never used wubi nor do I think much of it, I would say if you have a choice, go with a dualboot instead.05:03
Jon-arand: After GRUB blew up on me I dual-booted. Seriously though, if Ubuntu is supposed to work for my Grandma and a simple recommended update blows up Wubi because of some mix up with GRUB... well, that just sucks.05:04
seanbrystonegood luck finding the perfect OS05:05
GeekSquidJon-: type /msg ubottu !gender ... you might get a kick out of that ... also http://ubottu.com/factoids.cgi is ubottu's database for your enjoyment05:05
arandJon-: Bugs always suck, but there is little avoiding the neither, such is life.05:05
dsnyderssloopy, I think the stuff goes in the various rc*.d folders, and possibly the /etc/event.d folder.05:05
fivetwentysixbrjann: Can I install wubi and make it use a whole harddrive to itself to increase performance?05:05
linucksHi there, I am confused over this new grub.cnf, I need to add a kernel option however there seems to be no menu.lst file and the grub.cnf is only script. Can anyone help?05:05
Jon-arand: True, but when was the last time a Microsoft patches caused BSODs? Last patch date, yes, but that was from a rootkit not letting it modify a file, haha ^_^05:06
sloopydsnyders, only symlinks go into rc*.d05:06
arandlinucks: editing is done in /etc/default/grub05:06
brjannfivetwentysix: apparently yes, via LVPM. I've never used wubi or LVPM, though :) http://lubi.sourceforge.net/lvpm.html05:06
dsnyderssloopy, so where do the symlinks point?05:06
Jon-arand: My point is Ubuntu really needs more stability before it's ready for the average user IMO, I'm not bashing, just saying, it's a power-user OS05:06
Jon-Printer issue, please see http://paste.ubuntu.com/386073/  Please, someone at least tell me it's only a compatibility issue so I can frown and move on haha05:07
arandlinucks: use "sudo update-grub" to propagate the to the actual grub.cfg05:07
sloopydsnyders, to files in /etc/init.d05:07
linucksarand: ok, where in /etc/default/grub do I add a kernel option? I am new to grub205:07
fivetwentysixDoes wubi work on Win 7 64bit ?05:07
sloopydsnyders, which are where the actual startup control scripts reside05:07
Jon-fivetwentysix: It worked with RC1 for me, so I assume it will for you as well. I'd really recommend dual-boot though.05:08
jrtaylorivWhy would I use Ubuntu firefox addons rather than just installing them directly through firefox?05:08
dsnyderssloopy, so I guess that's where your /etc/rc.d files are too.05:08
linucksarand: would it happen to be GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""?05:08
Jon-jrtayloriv: I think they are the same thing.05:08
axisyshow do I setup a user with autologin ? put ubuntu on my gf's laptop .. she prefers not to enter passwd during login.. it is secure.. no open port except ssh w/ limit and there is no inbound route to my home05:08
arandlinucks: kernel option? like "acpi=off" or "vga=868"? In that case it is at the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line (where there is already the quiet and splash options)05:09
jrtaylorivJon- Why does Ubuntu team maintain these packages then? Surely they wouldn't create a package for no reason ....05:09
Jon-axisys: System -> Administration -> Login screen [in there]05:09
fivetwentysixJon-: I'm having trouble booting from cd05:09
linucksarand: i8042.nomux=105:09
sloopydsnyders, nope, rc.d was for scripts for simple tasks that were started/stopped/etc by the scripts in /etc/init.d05:09
Jon-fivetwentysix: You the BIOS guy? Tap F2 when computer powers on set CD to boot before hard-drive in boot order05:09
Jon-Printer issue, please see http://paste.ubuntu.com/386073/  Please, someone at least tell me it's only a compatibility issue so I can frown and move on haha05:10
arandlinucks: that would go in there yes (what I mentioned)05:10
fivetwentysixJon-: That's the whole problem05:10
linucksarand: ok thanks :)05:10
Jon-jrtayloriv: I've used Ubuntu for 1 month. Don't ask me. :P05:10
Ghost1227much as i hate to admit it, i need help... i haven't configured X in ages but i now find myself needing to use an ubuntu box that is forcing 800x600 resolution on an i91505:10
axisysJon-: thanks05:11
hamza  no system devices (partitions, usb, cd/dvd drive) are showing in my nautilus, but they show in disk utility.  now im just wondering if it's hopeless and i have to reinstall...05:11
arandfivetwentysix: Depending on system everything from Del, F1-F2, F10-F12 is possible ways to get into bios05:11
Jon-fivetwentysix: BIOS setup is usually F1, F2 or DEL. I usually tap all three in rapid succession until it pops up.05:11
fivetwentysixJon-: ill try when i gethome05:11
sloopyJon-, looks like you are probly sharing it as a raw device and ubuntu is sending PS pages to it...05:12
seanbrystoneisnt F10 the bios on  the newer HP's?05:12
sloopyJon-, on the win2k machine look at the raw file in the spool and see if it has a PS header or binary data...05:12
rwwI tend to just bash function keys randomly until the setup screen appears.05:13
ja660kis there a win95 emulator like dosbox?05:13
ardchoillerww: hehe05:13
Wubuntui'm using Karmic Koala 9.10, and have a Microdia TwinkleCam USB camera that i can't seem to get to operate. Can anyone assist me with this problem?05:13
Jon-sloopy: I can access the drive remotely from here, what path is the spool in generally?05:13
arandjrtayloriv: Using the ubuntu firefox addons makes them use the package management system, and hence will be easier to manage (depending on your preference)05:13
arand!wine | ja660k05:13
ubottuja660k: WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu05:13
dsnyderssloopy, on my fedora box, rc.d contains init.d and the various rc*.d folders.  On my ubuntu those are all in /etc directly.05:13
sloopyJon-, i dont know for win2k, on win xp it is... uh give me a sec05:13
dsnyderssloopy, what exactly are you after?05:14
axisyshow do I disable `laptop mode' .. it is keep going to suspend mode if the lid is down05:14
axisysgot it! power management05:14
Jon-axisys: You can access power options from System -> Preferences -> Power Management. Change the settings and click the make default [or whatever it is] button05:14
axisysJon-: thanks05:14
sloopydsnyders, i upgraded my router machine from 8.04 to 9.10, i tried firestarter for the FW but it is sucking up 100% cpu on one of the cores...05:15
jrtaylorivarand, Thanks05:15
sloopydsnyders, so i am going back to just using a iptables script i made...05:15
sensaeI'm having problems with mdadm and RAID - it seems like it won't write a superblock to my raid devices05:15
GeekSquidsloopy: you are so much better off using iptables or ufw, firestarter is a memory/cpu hog05:16
sloopydsnyders, and i am used to sysv init, as it was in the past (i used to use FC back in the day...)05:16
dsnyderssloopy, so you want to know where to put the iptables script?05:16
sloopyGeekSquid, yeah i said that ;')05:16

Guest58560hello all can i ask a question05:19
sloopyGuest58560, you just did...05:19
dsnyderssloopy, judging from the readme in /etc/init.d, you should put it in /etc/init.d and then run update-rc.d05:19
Guest58560fair enough...05:19
brjann!ask | Guest5856005:19
ubottuGuest58560: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)05:19

Guest58560and partitions are not mounted automatically which is odd to me05:21
GeekSquidalcala: look here http://www.murrayc.com/blog/permalink/2008/03/28/webcams-that-just-work-with-ubuntu/05:21
sloopydsnyders, no, that isnt the right place for the script... init.d is where the script with the info for update-rc needs is stored...05:21
alcalabrjann thanks05:21
DanaGhmm, is it a known issue that the PowerPC LiveCD is 705 megabytes, and thus too big to fit on a CD?05:22
brjannalcala: take a look at the link GeekSquid said too :)05:22
alcalageeksquid thanks05:22

sloopyJon-, yeah that sounds about right... i am not really sure, as i have been linux (and unix) prodominate for ~15 years...05:24
sloopyJon-, and i have seen this issue with samba... i know how to fix it in samba but not windows05:24

AgentGreenI get a blank screen after ubuntu bootloader? lets me select05:25

GeekSquidAgentGreen: there are a number of considerations... it is probably your video card ... at boot loader screen . press ESC after post ... go to recovery mode and run the xfix then reboot and see if that helped05:34
sloopyJon-, replace 2k with ubuntu05:34
AgentGreenthank you very much geek squid05:34
AgentGreenthis is from cd boot ?05:35
Jon-sloopy: It's my moms computer05:35
sloopyJon-, mom can learn ubuntu...05:35
Johnyi uninstalled ubuntu but i cant seem to uninstall GRUB Loader05:35
GeekSquidAgentGreen: fresh start ... when you get to Loading Grub .. Press esc ... go to the recovery cosole and run the xfix05:35
Johnyi cant boot to my XP machine :(05:35
Jon-sloopy: I've had ubuntu for a month and the only reason I didn't say screw it and go back to windows is because I had the perseverance and was good with PCs. I've had issues... I'll consider it.05:35
AgentGreenall i have is cd05:36
AgentGreenk it switch into text mod05:36
AgentGreenim at boot :05:36
sensaeCan anyone explain this to me? My mdadm raid automatically builds on boot, on /dev/md_d0, and I have it in fstab. When my system boots it hangs complaining /home won't mount (the raid), but all I have to do is drop to recovery console, type 'mount -a' and hit ctrl D to continue booting, and it works05:36
sloopyJon-, just remember you didnt learn windows in a month, so dont expect to learn ubuntu in a month ;')05:36
GeekSquidAgentGreen: press esc to get to the grub screen ... go to recovery .. are we getting there05:36
dsnyderssloopy, scripts go into /etc/init.d according to this: http://embraceubuntu.com/2005/09/07/adding-a-startup-script-to-be-run-at-bootup/ and http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=36871705:36

Johnyany of you guys here know how to remove grub loader?05:37
AgentGreenjust went to a boot: promp05:37
ChogyDansensae: it might be an ordering thing.  It is trying to boot before the raid comes online05:37
ChogyDansensae: don't know anything about fixing that though...05:37
rwwJohny: what are you trying to replace it with? Windows' boot loader?05:37
sloopydsnyders, yes, startup scripts belong in init.d but this isnt the startup script...05:37
Johnyyeah i want to restore it to the original05:37
AgentGreenif I press esc from boot loader of cd05:37
sensaeChogyDan: Well that's lame :/05:37
AgentGreenI go to a BOOT: prompt05:37
NimbleRabitI'm trying to do a cp command, and I know for 100% sure the file exists, but it's telling me cannot stat FILE: No such file or directory.  Here's the command sudo cp "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/CoreAVC Pro/CoreAVCDecoder.ax" /usr/share/dshowserver/  what am I doing wrong here?05:37
AgentGreenI did it post clicking live05:37
rwwJohny: Which version of Windows?05:37
Jon-sloopy: I just meant shit like having GRUB die on a boot... "Learning Windows" is very false, it's more like "learning how to not install junky programs and avoid malware" Windows is quite stable, hard to screwup, low crash rate, no compatibility issues, updates don't break things. Ubuntu, so far for me, not quite there yet. I don't know if I want to subject my mom to that05:37
Johnyi have windows XP05:38
AgentGreengot it posting all info05:38

GeekSquidAgentGreen: not the CD ... try without CD ... boot normally .. when you get past the bios screen press ESC05:38
Johnyahhhh i already did that05:38
AgentGreennot installed there's only ubuntu 8.10 fastrack 4 and windows xp05:39
Johnystill doing GRUB Loading but it actually wont even go to the menu05:39
AgentGreenbacktrack4 I mean05:39
sloopyJon-, yeah my wife was a windows person, made her use linux, until she got her new laptop, tried vista, didnt care much for it, went to 7, and is serioulsy considering going back to linux...05:39
geniiJohny: For grub2 hold the shift key down and not the esc key05:39
Johnyit would just stay GRUB loading05:40
GeekSquidAgentGreen: what do you mean not installed ... what did it do?05:40
Jon-sloopy: Hmm, really? Personally I love 7, but I take computer science so some experiance in UNIX/Linux would be nice. That's why I forced myself to switch for a bit.05:40
GeekSquidgenii: that's new .. good to know05:40

Johnyand GRUB is still there05:45
brjannhipitihop: that will show the current time in what the system thinks is your local timezone05:45
sloopydsnyders, yeah that would be an LSB approved method to doing it...05:45
hipitihopbrjann, says EST whereas I am GMT+10:0005:45
arandJohny: That shouldn't be the case... You only have one harddisk?05:46
Johnywell when i instlaled ubuntu i had 205:46
Johny1 for xp and 1 for ubuntu05:46
hipitihopbrjann, although date and time correct, hence I suspect I never set my timzone properly and just set date/time05:46
Johnyand i just removed the ubuntu hardrive cuz i thought it might help remove the GRUB loading thing05:47
Johnybut it didnt05:47
brjannhipitihop: this should help :) https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuTime05:47
Johnyi already uninstalled ubuntu but now i cant boot to xp cuz GRUB would get stuck loading05:47
Johnycant even get to the GRUB menu05:47
sloopydsnyders, but either way thanks for the help...05:49

dsnyderssloopy, at least five years, probably more.05:50
hipitihopbrjann, strnage I followed dpkg-reconfigure tzdata and it showed the correct settings and shows current local timezone correctly but in local time it shows EST05:50
Wubuntuare there specific XChat rooms for webcam issues?05:51
sloopydsnyders, ahh ok...05:51
rzx237Johny: how?05:51
brjannhipitihop: that's weird. if you click on the clock in your panel, does it show your location correctly?05:51
GeekSquidAgentGreen: I would reccommend downloading either ubuntu 9.04 or 9.10 and install that over the install you have .. I believe you will have better luck05:51
dsnyderssloopy, ubuntu sets a lot of stuff on its ear, though.05:51
AgentGreeni have 9.10 on a cd05:51
AgentGreenbut wont install05:52
Johnyi dont know it just booted agian. i think it was the hardrive that i removed05:52
AgentGreenfails before install screen boot loader works fine05:52
GeekSquidAgentGreen: have you checkd the disk for integrity?05:52
AgentGreenwill do but i suspect it'll be fine05:52
Blue1rzx237: yes but you have to set that05:53
AgentGreenbacktrack 4 installed and ran live from cd wich is on ubuntu 8.10 i believe05:53
Jon-Printer issue : http://paste.ubuntu.com/386105/  [now with updated info if you took a look before]05:53
AgentGreenso i don't see why this installation of ubuntu 9.10 would be problematic05:53
dsnydersSo I gather nobody has gotten kpovmodeler to work?05:53
sloopydsnyders, just different methods of doing the same thing, try running a *BSD and compare, and you will see how ubuntu and fedora have similarities in different spots with them...05:53
hipitihopbrjann, I'm checking the machine remotely via ssh so not simple to bring that up05:54
soudesukaI installed ubuntu using wubi and then tried to move the install using LVPM, but for some reason, ubuntu does not show up in the grub menu.  I get an UnknownOS which points to my Windows Bootloader and then the actual Windows Bootloader.  The ubuntu install is still associated with the windows bootloader.  any suggestions?05:54
Skeethello guys05:54
brjannhipitihop: ah, i see. sorry, i actually have to do something else for a little bit :( good luck, though!05:54
dsnyderssloopy, true.  It's getting to know the variations and what goes where, especially between distro upgrades, that keeps you on your toes05:55
Jon-souldesuka You could always boot into a Win recovery CD and have it remake the bootloader, then see if you can get GRUB to load Ubuntu?05:55
Blue1soudesuka: becuase wubi runs as a task under windows05:55
soudesukaBlue1: LVPM is supposed to move Ubuntu to its own seperate partition05:55
clawsthis is my 6'th day on linux and.. boy... I LOVE THIS !05:55
AgentGreenclaws well done05:56
Blue1soudesuka: i've not had good luck with that - - but YMMV (your mileage may vary)05:56
AgentGreenIm loving the ubuntu remix05:56
sloopyclaws, congrats05:56
dsnyderssloopy, for example, they've changed the xwindows reset from CTRL-ALT-Backspace to ALT-Printscreen-K05:56
soudesukaJon: the reason I did this was because my laptops disc drive is not working... i cant install any thing from a disc05:56
AgentGreenjust not so happy with installer on ubuntu 9.10 desktop05:56
Skeetclaws, gj!05:57
Jon-soudesuka: The only way I know how to boot from USB .iso is with GRUB and it's a bit tricky.05:57
Jon-soudesuka: But probably easier than trying to port a Wubi install05:57
AgentGreenworks great for usb.iso boot05:57

GeekSquidAgentGreen: backtrack is a dirivitave version that doesn't use the nvidia drivers, I had had problems with 8.10 with nvidia .. I know 8.04 works with nvidia, as does 9.04 .. 8.10 is almost to end of life, where as 8.04 still has a year of support, I digress, but really I'd keep trying ... I have one other option ... in your out of sync press CTRL-ALT-F1 to see if you get into a terminal ... if so login and run sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg05:59

sloopyclaws, cant know what good is unless you know what bad is... think of those years as a learning exp...05:59
* Blue1 wishes he knew more spanish05:59
dsnyderssloopy, when you have handicap assist on and hold alt  it toggles on.  If you then press ctrl-backspace to delete a word, you restart X with no opportunity to save your work.05:59
knoppiesclaws: Linux is free, but only to those who consider their time worthless.06:00
AgentGreenwhn it's out of sink I can't ctrl alt f1 to get a terminal06:00
AgentGreenbut il try again to make sure06:00
ssmywhat is the easiest way to make one of my keys do what another would? at some point ubuntu decided that my right alt key isn't an alt key, and I want it to be.06:00
dsnyderssloopy, apparently it was happening quite a bit.06:00
Jon-Printer issue : http://paste.ubuntu.com/386105/  [now with updated info if you took a look before]06:00

Skeetclaws, what took you so long? :)06:02
* AgentGreen cries06:02
sloopydsnyders, yeah back in the mid 90's i used to have a shell running off the serial port on my 68k mac incase the console got too screwed, i could use a terminal to fix it... those were the days /nostalgia06:03
Jon-Blue1: I can use samba to access the drive shares and to see the printer, only when I go to print the printer "rejects" it [spins up like it is preparing to print, and then just stops]06:03
clawsskeet: i hate my self for that  :P06:04

dj_segfault1dandaman: There's a web page that describes how to generate a list of all installed programs and then another command to reinstall them on another machine from that list.  I don't remember where it is but maybe someone else does06:43
muaddibI am trying to set the above and it doesn't seem to be taking, but I am not sure what I am missing06:43
Jordan_U!clone | dandaman06:43
ubottudandaman: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate06:43
patrick_____muaddib, your name sounds familiar -- is that from Dune?06:44
dj_segfault1Jordan_U: Thanks06:44

Jordan_Udj_segfault1, You're welcome.06:44
RPG-Masterarand, So how did you handle it?06:44
* becker_11 on windows I hated doing updates from the MS update site, on linux I get sad when I run apt-get update, apt-get upgrade and there's nothing to install lol06:44
dj_segfault1patrick_____: If you put it in root's crontab then you don't need the sudo part.06:44
patrick_____dj_segfault1, cool, thanks for the tip!06:45
mattgyverdandaman, the other thing you can do is copy your /home directory to usb, most of your application settings are within that folder.06:45

dj_segfault1patrick_____: What time do you want to shut down the box06:45
lindzeynQuick question.  When I boot up, my desktop environment won't load, that is, the desktop icons do not appear and I cannot right click on the Desktop to get the usual gnome display options06:45
becker_11Rebelstar: don't ask to ask just ask your question06:45
mattgyverlike for pidgin all your config settings etc is in /home/.purple06:45
Rebelstarbecker_11:sorry i have been asking ? :)..anyway here is it  ----------- i have ubutnu 9.10.. I just tried to install compizconfig and after checking desktop effects option,, system hangs..even after restart in recovery mode system hangs with startup screen..what can i do..pls help06:46
patrick_____dj_segfault1, I don't want it to shutdown at a fixed time every day, just in about 45 minutes from now. So I'm going to do sudo shutdown +45. I thought there might be a "nicer" way to do it though, that's why I asked here :)06:46
lindzeynEverything else is fine06:46
arandRPG-Master: Hmm, was so heavily corrupted and disorganised so not much to do really, I was able to run photorec, which extraced some files, but it was still a huge mess which I wasn't able to extract much from, luckily I had no really important data stored on there..06:46
Jordan_Udandaman, You can convert your Wubi install to a "real" install on its own partition ( I know that it's also possible to transfer a wubi install from one windows install to another but I can't give you a guide for that at the moment )06:46
Itadakimasuim confused... Ubuntu has System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager and then, Applicatioins -> Ubuntu Software Center whats the difference, just personal preference?06:47
becker_11Rebelstar: that ones above me I'm sorry I haven't used compiz ... can you get to a shell at all?06:47
RPG-Masterarand, I guess I'm just going to trudge through the mess then :/06:47
Jon-Last call before I go to bed [for real this time haha]: hplip + samba w/ HP F4180 driver + printer connected USB to windows 2000 + HP F4180 printer = only spins up and does not print. What is the issue?06:47
Jon-The driver is the f4100 series driver***06:47
dj_segfault1patrick_____: Ah sorry I misunderstood.  There's also the "at" command to run things in the future, but that probably would have the same effect.06:47
Rebelstarbacker_11: in recovery mode i can but i do not know the right commands to solve06:47
rwwItadakimasu: Pretty much. Software Center is newer and more focused towards new users.06:47
becker_11Itadakimasu: ma and pa will find software center easier snyaptic is more fiddly06:47
patrick_____dj_segfault1, probably, unless there were a way to call the "shutdown" gui button. Thanks by the way, I'd never heard of "at"06:48
Itadakimasualright thank you =o)06:48
cyberbluntzI'm trying to get my totem dvd player to work. It says it does not have the appropriate plugins. so i fallow instructions here http://projects.gnome.org/totem/#codecs. and when i get to the gst-plugins-base in the terminal it says package not found06:48
fudgey_muffinsanyone recognize this? http://dwarfurl.com/15bac06:48
fudgey_muffinsit started popping up all of a sudden06:48
dj_segfault1Itadakimasu: Software Center is dumbed down and only includes the common stuff.  So both do the same thing but Software Center gives you fewer choices.06:48
rwwcyberbluntz: assuming that you're trying to play DVDs on it (it's a general movie player...), https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/PlayingDVDs06:49
becker_11Rebelstar: well your on a computer now talking to me so search for the compiz config file in google and when you find it hopefully it will give you the path to the file then just cd to that folder and do nano <nameoffilehere>06:49
becker_11Rebelstar: and edit the file in nano06:49
arandRPG-Master: photorec may or may not recover/reorganise better, and you can also choose to recover by filetype, which might be useful for organization, it's part of the "testdisk" package if you're interested06:49
Rebelstarbacker_11:ok thanks i l try it out06:50

dj_segfault1patrick_____: "at" is designed to do things in the future, like "echo 'shutdown -h now' | at now + 45 minutes06:50
muaddib anyone familiar with mod_rewrite proxy06:50
becker_11Rebelstar: it's most likely in a folder like ~/.compiz in your home folder but that's just an assumtion you will need to check with a ls-a first06:51

burkeyrunning ubuntu 9.10 laptop froze and when i rebooted my tomboy notes are missing.  But I can create new tomboy notes06:52
azi_each time i try to open a media file, totem stops doing what it is currently doing and plays the new media. is there any way I could configure ubutnu to simply start another totem process?06:54
dj_segfault1azi_: Why not call mplayer directly?  Or gmplayer06:54

rastaseani am looking for software to control a windows machine on home xp from ubuntu 9.10. any ideas?06:54
azi_dj_segfault1: i use totem as my default media player for whatever that may be06:54
mattgyverrastasean, you could just use VNC06:55
dj_segfault1azi_: Yes.  Well if totem isn't working the way you want it to, use something that will ;)06:55
rastaseanmatt, unless i am configuring something wrong, vnc has not worked06:55
mattgyverrastasean, whats happening?  (it can be a pain in the butt the first few times to setup)06:55
dj_segfault1lindzeyn: I would rename (NOT delete) the .gnome, .gnome2, etc directories in your home directory and restart.  A config must be broken.06:56
cyberbluntzI guess Ill have to try a diff player06:56
rastaseanmatt, well which app should i try out? i have tried terminal server client, remote desktop, remote desktop view, krfb, gnome-rpd06:56
lindzeyndj_segfault1: just rename them to something arbitrary06:56
dj_segfault1azi_: That's why we have 20 programs that can do the same thing under Linux.  Everyone wants something different.06:57
mattgyverrastasean, the best client in my opinion is remmia but you need to make sure the machine you want to connect to is running a configured VNC server06:57
dj_segfault1lindzeyn: Yes, or move them to another directory temporarily.  Either way06:57
mattgyverrastasean, UltraVNC is a great one for windows, pretty easy to setup06:57
rastaseanmatt, i install ultravnc on windows to be able to control from linux?06:58
mattgyverrastasean, you install UltraVNC as a system service (best way), setup port forwards in your router, and then connect from tsclient or whatever VNC client you wish06:58
dj_segfault1lindzeyn: For instance, I wrote my own script that looks for all the files in the current directory, randomizes the order, then passes them to mplayer in full screen and OSD start/end times.  Because that's what I wanted and I could do it.06:58
=== becker_11_away is now known as becker_11

dj_segfault1rastasean: Sorry I missed the beginning of your thread, but based on what mattgyver just said, would ssh -X work for you (ssh with automatic port forwarding)07:00
rastaseandj_ could you tell me about ssh-x07:01

mawstTHat can't be right can it?07:05
dj_segfault1rastasean: ssh to the machine you want to run a program on with the -X parameter, and it automatically forwards the X ports for you.  Your X client has to have authentication turned of with "xhost +" so the apps can connect, but then it just plain works.  From that ssh shell, you can run Firefox or whatever on the machine you sshed to and it shows up on your computer.07:05
=== _jastor_ is now known as jastor
rastaseandj_excellent! but ssh isn't even enabled on the windows07:06
dj_segfault1rastasean: Make sure sshd is set up for it: If the ForwardX11 variable is set to “yes” (or see the description of the -X, -x, and -Y options above) and the user is using X11 (the DISPLAY environment variable07:06
dj_segfault1     is set), the connection to the X11 display is automatically forwarded to the remote side in such a way that any X11 programs started from the shell (or command) will07:06
dj_segfault1     go through the encrypted channel, and the connection to the real X server will be made from the local machine.  The user should not manually set DISPLAY.  Forwarding07:06

dj_segfault1sensae: Yes, that's what I use for my classic 120GB.  real syncing, cover art, podcasts, and if you update track information it actually updates the ID3v2 tags in the mp3 files.07:13

Boots32Mindus, I got a response that says it can't find it, but did point me back to lsusb07:54
zebastianby the way more specifically i have a WRT54G2 V1 router07:54
indusBoots32M, lsusb is a command in the terminal , just type it07:54
indusBoots32M, iam not sure what you mean it cant find it07:54
texomobileunop , I read that about upstart is there a config file for that somewhere? I want to boot into text mode and just run startx when I need it07:54
DelphiWorldzebastian: reset the router to default config07:54
Boots32MI typed two l's07:54
Boots32Minstead of one07:55
zebastianDelphiWorld: how do i do that from ubuntu? you see i set up the router when it had windows07:55
Boots32MI'll paste it again:)07:55
zebastianwith the cd07:55
zebastiani threw that away when i switched to ubuntu07:55
DelphiWorldzebastian: and go to your ubuntu shell and type: ifconfig and check your ethernet nic ip07:55

DelphiWorldzebastian: have you configured your ip in the router or no?07:59
DelphiWorldzebastian: and your ip is static or dynamic?08:00
Boots32MIts just that after I startup windows I don't want to go back to ubuntu because after I shut windows down hadies freezes over....08:00
indusBoots32M, thats a webcam thread isnt it08:01
zebastianDelphiWorld: i dont know if my ip is static or dynamic, i pay the cable company as far that goes,,,never had to deal with htis before, pardon my ignorance, and i had configured the router on the same computer, but with windows and a gui install cd08:01
Boots32MFor my computer the internal webcam is on the usb system08:01
Boots32MI figured that out when I did the lsusb thing08:01
Boots32Mso its a usb problem still08:01
indusBoots32M, seems like a faulty usb connector on the motherboard?08:02
indusBoots32M, the usb headers which connect to the ports i mean08:02
indusBoots32M, cant really tell without looking at teh motherboard08:02
unopclaws_, an X window can be set on a particular layer i.e. normal, top, below, desktop, dock, etc.  read up on wmctrl (1) and window layers.08:02
Boots32Mindus, is the usb system a token ring type deal?08:02
indusBoots32M, token ring? wjhats taht08:03
DeltaLima28token ring has to deal with networking08:03
Boots32MWell the word serial part implies it, but I wonder if thats it08:03
zebastianhelp anyone?08:04
Boots32Mtoken ring networks are done in a serial fashion so if you break the line at any point on the network everything stops08:04
claws_unop: thank you.. im on it  :)08:04

injastill here08:07
X-Frogwhere can find whats new in the next release 10.0408:08
Pirateanyone feeling chatty?08:08
Boots32MZebastian, your problem can probably be fixed by turning off your cable modem , and router, wating ten seconds then turning on cable modem, wait 30sec, then turn on your router.08:08
natethegreat1419Who is interested in how 10.4 will turn out?08:08
MadpilotX-Frog, join #ubuntu+1 for 10.04 news & chat08:08
FlannelX-Frog: http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/lucid/alpha308:08

zebastianBoots32M: for how long will you be on?08:09

Anvoiduptime gives me 5 users. how do i log off the other tty1,2,...?08:10
syvahey guys, i have a problem using the livecd. After a random amount of time my monitor goes blank, the button flashes, as if it as lost signal to the video card. Although I can tell the live cd hasnt crashed or anything. Any ideas?08:10
natethegreat1419I hope that they dont change how 10.4 looks compared to the others08:10
Boots32Mgood luck... if that doesn't work download the manual and look at the troubleshooting section:)08:10
syvasometimes it will happen after 20 seconds of using the live cd,sometimes after 4 minutes08:10
natethegreat1419Like with 8.04 it had a bunch of issues especially with pulse08:10
evilGUII'm having a problem when I drag a file to the desktop or another folder it disappears, I have to use f5 to do a refresh to be able to see it. Any idea on what's going on here? I've already trashed my gnome config files and the Nautilus ones.08:11
Boots32Mzeb you gotta restart your computer too in the whole process08:11
solid_liquidnatethegreat1419, it looks very similar08:11
natethegreat1419Does it?08:11
solid_liquidnatethegreat1419, I've been running it since Friday because it's the only distro that works with the gpu integrated into the core i5 processor on my new laptop08:12
natethegreat1419Nice.... I would like to have a better processor in the computers I use08:12
solid_liquidyeah, it's SWEET08:12
solid_liquideverything responds almost instantly08:12
solid_liquidthere's really no lag in the desktop experience08:13
natethegreat1419I bet it does. That would be perfect for me usin AVIdemux and such08:13
solid_liquidyeah, transcoding video is definitely faster08:13
solid_liquidI've already tried some08:14
natethegreat1419I bet it is08:14
chu_Hey guys, anyone know how to change the default login status with Pidgin? I'd like to login by default to invisible (MSN) if possible...08:14
klxklxwill ubuntu 10.04 upgrade when gnome 3.0 realease?08:14
solid_liquidchu_, you're still using pidgin?08:14
solid_liquid10.04 won't have gnome 3.008:14
chu_Yes, yes I am solid_liquid08:14
zebastian_Boots32M: seemed to work, now how would i go about opening the connection08:15
solid_liquidchu_, have you tried Epiphany yet?08:15
zebastian_so that i dont have to type a password anymore08:15
solid_liquidchu_, it's the new default IM client for 10.0408:15
chu_solid_liquid: briefly, but I wasn't a fan.08:15
chu_Yeah, it was default for karmic too08:15
sash_solid_liquid: for 9.10 you mean08:15
Boots32MWell you can use mac address security...08:15
Boots32Mdo you know how to do that?08:15
solid_liquidsash_, I never used 9.10.  I like LTS releases, so I'm still running 8.04 on my desktop08:15
natethegreat1419You probably mean empathy LOL08:16
solid_liquidlol okay yeah08:16
klxklxwill ubuntu 10.04 upgrade when gnome 3.0 realease?08:16
sash_and this ;)08:16
chu_Oh well, I understood what he meant.08:16
solid_liquidlike I said, I just installed this version on Friday08:16
solid_liquidklxklx, no08:16
Flannelklxklx: No, 10.04 won't have gnome 308:16
Paddy_NIklxklx: Highly unlikely08:16
natethegreat1419I am talking to someone that has a 5.04 machine still running08:17
chu_Actually, empathy is still installed, I'll have a look at it.08:17
Boots32Mzebastian_, are you using your hard line or wireless from your cisco router?08:17
titan_arkHey! I am in a bit of a trouble. I changed some code in 2 files and saved em by the old name! Is there a way to recover the old files? I edited them in gedit =(08:17
chu_How do I change anything with Empathy?08:18
zebastian_Boots32M: what you recommended worked, i am on the wireless from the cisco router08:18
Boots32Mok well you need to log into your router and either make yours an open connection, or use mac address security in order to not use a password anymore...08:19
natethegreat1419titan-ark look for a back-up file looking for a ~ in the name08:19
zebastian_Boots32M: how do i log into my router from ubuntu? i am sorry for my ignorance but when i installed the thing i was on windows and it was pretty much click on a gui cd-rom08:20
chu_Wow, invisible buttons ftw!08:20
titan_arknatethegreat1419, i do see 2 files with the same name with a trailing ~, how do i recover them?08:20
Boots32MI don't think you can log on from ubuntu.. wait lemme check real quick08:20
solid_liquidzebastian_, use your web browser to surf to
natethegreat1419Open them back up like that08:21
solid_liquidzebastian_, or perhaps
titan_arkzebastian_, what exactly are you trying to do? just get into its default IP depending on the brand08:21
solid_liquidzebastian_, look at your computer's IP address to determine what the second to last digit is08:21
hexdumpHi all I have a continual problem with installing java.08:22
titan_arknatethegreat1419, i am a noob in linux, could you tell me how exactly? I do not want to damage it trying to open without doing it right,08:22
jastorsomeone that knows if theres a taskbar/desktop widget or something that enables/disables X systems default system quickkeys? dont like the whole "take precedence over quickkeys you intend to send to the terminal window, so theyre sent to Gnome/KDE instead"08:22
Boots32MWell I can't log on to mine from ubuntu... but maybe thats because I'm wireless.. I would probably have to hardwire my computer into the cicso router to log into it...08:22
hexdumpgetting the exec 48 java not found08:22
hexdumpand java problems with azureus08:22
nomad77zebastian_: try firefox,url  skip userfield, password field default admin iirc08:22
natethegreat1419copy and paste to another location and then opening it there so you dont mess with another file08:23
titan_arknatethegreat1419, cool will try iy08:23
natethegreat1419let me know if it works08:23
solid_liquidnomad77, that's actually very much dependent on the brand of router, and in some cases, the specific model from that brand08:23
hexdumpis there a way to totally remove java from my machine?08:23
thianpaDont know if this is the right place. Anyone knows where i can fin rar archiver GUI ?08:24
nomad77solid_liquid: i have linksys also. but figured it might be same08:24
jastorseems an old bug is back btw :P ... did some updating earlier and: mplayer: undefined symbol: codec_wav_tabs08:24
solid_liquidnomad77, it varies a lot, even from one linksys to another08:24

hexdumpwhoo hoo!! just figured out an easy fix for the java not found problem08:50
hexdumpheh heh it was just calling the wrong directory by default08:51
sercikthank you for help :(08:51
sercik i solved myself giving dmraid -ay before starts ubiauity08:51
solid_liquidtitan_ark, oh, you may also want to look through the scripts section.  Several scripts I wrote plus a couple dozen contributed by others are up there.  The bash scripts can teach you some nice tricks for using the shell08:52
titan_arksolid_liquid, surely will have bookmarked and will go through it in time. too much to digest for a n00b at a time08:53
solid_liquidheh :)08:53
solid_liquidtitan_ark, unfortunately I haven't taken the time to write all the articles I wanted to write, just a couple, but hopefully there's enough useful info there to help you out08:54
titan_arksolid_liquid, :)08:54
solid_liquidtitan_ark, in the "What's this Linux thing" part you might also want to mention all the cellphones out there running Linux (apparently it's most of them now)08:55

frankS2is there any way to display what files a deb package installed?09:00
titan_arksolid_liquid, ttyl assignments to do before i crash and an early monday! thx once a gain09:00
yeiksI came across bitrock installbuilder i'v neva used it b4 bt wld like to kno au good it is09:01
crawlerfrankS2: when you open the .deb in gdebi it tells you what files are included09:01
arandkaytortuga: use a liveCD to chroot and "update-grub"09:02
arandkaytortuga: or actually probably grub-install is what you want..09:03

TecR0chow do you check what is your default shell?09:03
TecR0cin the terminal09:03
solid_liquidTecR0c, cat /etc/passwd | grep yourusername09:03
ardchoilleTechnoviking:  echo $SHELL09:04
TecR0cthanks ard09:04
solid_liquidardchoille, not necessarily09:04
solid_liquidTecR0c, /etc/passwd is where the default shell is set, so it's where you should check09:04
solid_liquidTecR0c, and if you want to change it, you change that file09:04
TecR0cok thanks09:05
ardchoilleTechnoviking:  the SHELL variable holds your current shell, so echo $SHELL will suffice09:05
solid_liquidTecR0c, np09:05
solid_liquidardchoille, unless you've run a different shell09:05
yeiksI came across bitrock installbuilder i'v neva used it before bt wld like to kno au good it is09:05
TecR0cso its /bin/csh thanks09:05
ardchoillesolid_liq:  cat /etc/passwd | grep yourusername returns nothing here09:05
TecR0card you have to be root09:06
sash_useless use of cat09:06
ardchoilleTecR0c: shouldn't ne4ed root for that09:06
sash_grep yourname /etc/passwd09:06
solid_liquidTecR0c, oh yeah, because it takes root privs to work with that file.  I forgot about that heh09:06
solid_liquidsash_, yeah, I said that ;)09:06
rww/etc/passwd doesn't require root privileges to read.09:07
ardchoillerww: correct09:07
sash_nope, its readable for everyone09:07
solid_liquidardchoille, it's perms aren't necessarily the default perms of Ubuntu...  it sounds like he's not working with ubuntu09:07
ardchoilleTecR0c: which versionof ubuntu are you using?09:07
solid_liquidif csh is the default shell, it sounds more like he's on Unix09:07
TecR0card actually im using freebsd09:08
TecR0cbut i knew the concept would be the same09:08
solid_liquidyep, Unix ;)09:08
ardchoilleTecR0c: then you shouldn't be inhere asking bsd support09:08
ardchoillesolid_liq: good call09:08

hnsrguys, something weird just happened09:09
ardchoillesolid_liquid: hehe09:09
demonsporkhnsr, I know, I tried to watch that big fight up in canada, but for some reason a hockey game happened instead09:10
hnsri have ubuntu on my laptop, and I use ssh key auth for everything, but suddenly my private keyfile on my laptop had all permission bits set (777,rwxrwxrwx)09:10
hnsrdemonspork, :p09:10
hexdumpI'm using Xubuntu is there a way to access it through the shell?09:10
hnsrssh complained loudly, thankfully09:10
hnsrbut I wonder how the heck it even got that way09:10
ardchoillehexdump: you need to ask in #xubuntu09:10
yeiksI came across bitrock installbuilder i'v neva used it b4 bt wld like to kno au good it is09:11
solid_liquidhnsr, that's very hard to diagnose unless you can go through everything you did between when you know it wasn't that way and when it was09:11
Myrttihexdump: it's different in xubuntu09:11
solid_liquidhnsr, which...  is still a lot of work09:11
hexdumpah okie thanks though now I know for ubuntu.  thanks for the help09:11
Myrttihexdump: applications - settings - sessions and startup09:11
sash_hnsr: grep chmod ~/.bash_history09:11
hnsrsolid_liquid, hmm, yeah I suppose you're right, it mustve happened in the last hour though since I sshed to my server not too long ago without problems09:12
hnsrI do remember one thing, I did 'sudo apt-get install traceroute', and then I got some kind of popup about an authentication issue with updating the apt package lists, or something along those lines09:12
yeiksnobody seems to want to answer my question09:12
solid_liquidhnsr, hmm09:13
hnsrI then clicked uhm.. something, i think it had a button saying 'check' and it asked my user password (i.e. like when you need to reaise priveleges for updating software), and then I just let it do its thing09:13
hnsrthough I'm not sure what it was actually doing, as I was in a hurry to get on with debugging my network :/09:14
solid_liquidyeiks, this isn't a "texting channel"...  you might try typing like a normal human being ;)09:14
ardchoillesash_: actually I think "history | grep foo" would be better in case something has yet to be written to ~/.bash_history09:15
hexdumpthanks now I have to fix the ps3 media server java not found again pfff figures.  figure one thing out another thing fails.09:15
sash_ardchoille: yep09:15
solid_liquidhexdump, heh09:15
hnsranyay, paranoid mode is now set to 'off' and I'll just assume this was something innocent, just wanted to bring it up here incase someone else got something like this :p09:16
solid_liquidhnsr, I think it was unique to you.  I use ssh all the time, and haven't seen that problem09:18
hnsrsolid_liquid, yeah, it's just weird since it mustve been some other tool/app/thing that changed the permissions on my key, and I guess it would be interesting to find out what and why, sadly my bash_history file doesn't reveal anything :/09:19
solid_liquidhnsr, yep.  That's about the only thing I'd really like to see changed about how shells in Linux work, but it's so difficult to come up with an elegant way to have separate history files for different terminals without having a massive blowup in the number of files saved for that purpose09:21

solid_liquidGuest94909, that's just because Linux is unfamiliar to you right now.  You still need to learn the names of the programs we use in Linux, and learn your way around.  It's kinda like moving into a new house.  You'll bump into a few walls in the dark at night, but you'll adjust soon enough09:36
ardchoilleothers: you need to ask in #kubuntu09:36

ddavidsardchoille: ok - http://paste.ubuntu.com/386203/09:55
arandZus: Not completely sure, but I think everyone has a personal key, and if say, a team creates a ppa which has another associated key, the LP system will automatically accept all team-members' keys and re-sign with the ppa-key when any one of the mebers upload to the PPA (not sure, but I think that's how it works..)09:56

ddavidsardchoille: it's a new install but i gave it out to a friend and i guess he must have tampered wt it...09:58

Arma_PingFloyd: or I can just install Xubuntu and then install LXDE nothing will change, that's not the problem I have, the main problem is making a Linux OS work on a P2 and hook it up to a windows domain controller10:03
hatten_solid_liquid: faileas w8 a second, booting10:03
faileasdjoef: if its a FS issue... you'd prolly not have it caufht by said tool10:03
PingFloydArma_: yeah, that is probably your best route10:04
Arma_djoef: <faileas> djoef: tried running fsck?10:04
djoeffaileas, FS ?10:04
Arma_PingFloyd: but hooking it up to a windows domain should be a challenge10:04
minus007How to install Firefox 3.6 on Ubuntu 9.04?10:04
faileashatten: i'm an idiot for telling you to pastebin fsck. but ifconfig should show a ip addie that's valid, hopefully. else we'd have to go to strp 210:04
psycho_oreosdjoef, filesystem10:04
Arma_and I would prefer Ubuntu over Fedora10:04
djoefpsycho_oreos, thank you :)10:04
faileaswhat psycho_oreos said10:04
ardchoilleddavids: open a terminal and do: sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list && sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list.backup /etc/apt/sources.list10:04
andrew__ZOMG FEDORA HATS10:04
Arma_but if there is no way to do but on Fedora then Fedora it is I guess10:04
psycho_oreosdjoef, np10:04
solid_liquidArma_, it can be done on Ubuntu too, it's just more work10:05
p1oooop1hey guys10:05
adri_Is there a way to track changes to the Ubuntu system and store them somewhere? I'm about to add a script to init.d. If I ever re-install Ubuntu I will have to search for the fix again and install the script again. Is there a tool that automates this?10:05

minus007hey p1oooop110:05
Arma_solid_liquid: work is no problem I have 4 months to finish this project10:05
ddavidsardchoille: done10:05
solid_liquidArma_, Fedora was made to do that easily.  You'll probably just need to write a script or something for Ubuntu, but Ubuntu is obviously a much nicer choice for a desktop distro10:05
faileasadri_: not as far as i know. that's one reason i document my changes in a wiki ;p10:06
djoeffaileas, Arma_ , So even with the samsung diagnostic tool saying there is no error, you would recommend me to check with fsck right ?10:06
hatten_faileas: yeah, ifconfig says no ip, only inet addr and mask, and some other stuff10:06
ardchoilleddavids: I'm sorry I wasn't able to fix this problem for you, but keep asking in here and someone should be able to help10:06

mjrosenbhas linux-ubuntu-modules been deprecated?10:07
p1oooop1anyone know how to record using pulse? for whatever reason, it isn't working :P10:07
Arma_solid_liquid: I am a part of Ubuntu-lb so I'm working alone on this project, true, but this is one for the team ;)10:07
p1oooop1perhaps my ALSA drivers aren;t working right?10:07
faileashatten_: it should be eth0 or eth1 - ifconfig should have output it10:07
mjrosenbbecause apt/synaptic does not seem to have anything for 3.6.31.*10:07
rwwminus007: Firefox 3.6 is not officially supported on Ubuntu 9.04. For an unsupported PPA version, see https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+archive/firefox-stable10:07
p1oooop1intel ICH-7?10:07
scruffymogwaiIs FF 3.6 available thru a PPA?10:07
ardchoilleddavids: fwiw, you shouldn't be getting that error unless he messed with your keyrings10:07
faileashatten_: if neither are up, we will need to find it from lshw10:07
minus007Thanks rww10:07
djoeffaileas, Arma_, should I do this starting from a live CD and run the full test ? (secondary question, will this be able to "repair" my disk (or at least avoid further errors by ignoring those blocks))10:08
brt_Hi everyone! My drive sda is divided into 3 partitions: boot, swap, and data. I corrupted files on the boot partition. Can I fix it without affecting the data partition?10:08
hatten_faileas: neither are up10:08
solid_liquidArma_, it would be great to see Ubuntu have a large installbase at a University10:08
faileasdjoef: yes10:08
faileashatten_: what do you have?10:08
hatten_faileas: in ifconfig? linnk encap, inet addr, mask, rx/tx packets, mtu, metric, rx/tx bytes10:09
p1oooop1solid_liquid: I agree, wouldn't it really make a difference?10:09
ddavidsardchoille: i guessed as much10:09
faileashatten_: all the way left10:09
Arma_solid_liquid: yup, and LDAP does not help cause I wont have a linux server, they have a windows server10:09
hatten_faileas: aha, lo10:09
hatten_faileas: only10:09
p1oooop1solid_liquid: hundreds more people in here asking for help :D10:09
djoeffaileas, Arma_ , thanks !10:09
rwwmjrosenb: yes. That package was only published for hardy; I'm looking to see where that functionality is now located.10:09
ddavidsbut isnt it possible to revert such, to an earlier time? just thinking...10:09
faileashatten_: ahh. ok. TIME FOR STAGE TWO! STRIKE!10:09
solid_liquidp1oooop, heh10:09
faileashatten_: sudo lshw | less10:10
hatten_faileas: fight!10:10
ardchoilleddavids: I'm sure it is, I just don't know how10:10
mjrosenbrww: sweet.10:10
faileashatten_: look for lines starting with *-network10:10
Arma_and it would also be more professional if I make a workstation that can download updates and stuff and give them to the clients instead of each one downloading it alone and installing apart which will save bandwidth10:10
ddavidsnay body help, someone has messed up wt my keyrings (it seems) and now i cant update wtout errors.10:10
p1oooop1p1oooop get off... :P10:10
p1oooop1hold on, imma go get p1oooop10:11
hatten_faileas: faileas found it, *-network DISABLED10:11
ikoniap1oooop1: please stop10:11
faileashatten_: is there a eth something there?10:11
ikoniap1oooop1: this is a support channel, try to keep to that topic, it's support for ubuntu only10:11
hatten_faileas: eth5 O_o10:11
faileashatten_: ah hah! STAGE 3!10:11
rwwmjrosenb: from the look of it, free modules are in the regular linux-image packages, non-free ones are in linux-restricted-modules-versionnumber-architecture10:11
hatten_faileas: that's its logical nome10:11
hatten_faileas: name10:11
rwwmjrosenb: so if you're using the generic kernel, you'd want the linux-image-generic and linux-restricted-modules-generic metapackages installed, which will pull in the right version packages.10:12
faileashatten_: sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces10:12
ardchoilleI would like one of those "Ubuntu will be release in x days" graphic for my website. Where would I get one?10:12
hatten_faileas: nano? bah, vim all the way10:12

Arma_solid_liquid, PingFloyd I have a question, would it be better to make a local Ubuntu server which Ubuntu clients will connect to and itself will connect to the Windows server or would it be better to make all clients directly connected to the windows server ?10:13
hatten_faileas: i know, im only noob to ubuntu, one year user of arch10:13
faileaschange any instance of "eth0" under primary network interface to eth510:13
mjrosenbrww: should the tp_smapi (or whatever smapi is called these days) be in there?10:13
hatten_faileas: okay, i got it, there are two rows10:13
hatten_faileas: 'auto lo' and 'iface lo inet loopback'10:13
faileas... wait... what?10:13
hatten_faileas: that's what inside the interfaces file10:13
viliny_Anyone know whats up with playdeb being down?10:14
Kamokowardchoille: As far as I know, most people who have those have made their own PHP scripts that generate the images. (I might be wrong though)10:14
solid_liquidArma_, what you're talking about sounds like a suse server10:14
faileasadd two lines "auto eth5" and "iface eth5 inet dhcp"10:14
joaopintoviliny, the main server failed, we are working on it10:14
Arma_solid_liquid: suse ?10:14
faileashatten_: that should fix it. all you need to do is restart your networky stuff, and you'll be goof10:15
p1oooop1Kamokow: you are right, using GD10:15
ardchoilleKamokow: That's what I was thinking too but thought I'd ask10:15
p1oooop1Kamokow: google it ;)10:15
solid_liquidArma_, Novell made sure suse servers integrate seamlessly with windows networks, which is why m$ sells support contracts for suse linux10:15
p1oooop1ardchoille: google GD, it can use PHP but PHP is not necessarry for it to work10:15
hatten_faileas: yay, one ifup later and I'm connected. Thanks a lot!10:16
Arma_solid_liquid: so I have to install suse ? :(10:16
solid_liquidArma_, heh not necessarily10:16
faileashatten_: np. i had a similar issue with a VM a few days back ;p10:16
solid_liquidArma_, it's just the easiest solution10:16
Arma_solid_liquid: or maybe opensuse :/ I would like it to be open source10:16
ardchoilleKamokow: fouhnd it! http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/countdown10:16
solid_liquidArma_, suse is opensource, just charged for10:16
p1oooop1ardchoille: the problem is that you don't just tell it "make image real nice" you need to tell it to do every step of making such image10:16
rwwmjrosenb: I'm looking, but my computer's being slow10:16
Kamokowardchoille: I also just found it and was going to send. I guess thats not a problem now. Gratz.10:16
zuppershit :10:17
mjrosenbrww: also, the latest linux-restricted-modules-generic seems to be for 2.6.28-17.2210:17
p1oooop1what was that?10:17
ikoniazagabar: please control your language10:17
Arma_I don't care for the easiet solution, I want it to work in 3 months, I think that's more then enough to pull it through wouldn't it ? and I know that suse and opensuse are the same that's why I said opensuse10:17
faileasikonia: i think you mean zupper? who just did a driveby ;p10:17
ikoniaughhh, tab lag10:18
ikoniazagabar: sorry , misstab/lag10:18
solid_liquidArma_, my point was this: start with the easiest to see how they made it work so well, and then figure out how to make whatever distro you want do it equally well10:18
rwwmjrosenb: hmm, that's odd. They must have changed it in Karmic and I never noticed :\10:18
Arma_solid_liquid: has it been done before ?10:18
solid_liquidArma_, has what?10:19
Arma_if it has then I will find it online and make it through10:19
mjrosenbrww: isn't progress great?10:19
Arma_I hate to see windows everywhere, it is slooooooow and unstable and I HATE IT10:19
solid_liquidArma_, dunno if you'll find that or not10:19
Arma_I want My unversity to have a taste of linux10:19
solid_liquidArma_, you're preaching to the choir10:19
Arma_cause once you go linux you never go back10:19
ikoniaArma_: ok - what do you actually need support with ?10:19
Arma_solid_liquid: actually I'm working on it not just preaching10:20
solid_liquidArma_, lol  like all of us10:20
ikoniaArma_: Microsfot windows is acceptable for some people so please stop ranting about it, this is a support channel, do you need support with Ubuntu ?10:20
p1oooop1Arma_: LMAO, you think... the only reason, IMHO that windows is so popular is because it's "easy" to use10:20
Arma_I've been working for 3 semesters now on this project and finally I got computers with P2 to work on10:20
Arma_p1oooop1: IT IS NOT EASY TO USE10:20
p1oooop1Arma_: you ever think of making a kerrighed cluster?10:20
ikoniaArma_: stop now10:20
Arma_I find linux easier to manipulate :/10:20
Arma_but that's just me10:21
Arma_ikonia, I got these P2 to install linux on them and hook em up to a windows domain controller10:21
p1oooop1oops, wrong channel... sorry ikonia10:21
=== Guest38942 is now known as Termana_n810
solid_liquidp1oooop1, no, it's what comes with computers, so it's what people already know, it was the cheapest solution 30 years ago so lots of custom apps have been written for it, and it has vendor lock in10:21
ikoniaArma_: ok - so you need support with that ?10:21
Arma_and I chose the very first Linux OS I ever used and learned on to impliment the project10:21
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!10:21
Arma_I would like some help with that why not10:22
rwwmjrosenb: indeed. alright, I don't have anything smapi related under /lib/modules in Karmic with linux-image-generic, so it ain't in that package...10:22
ikoniaArma_: ok - what part are you stuck with10:22
p1oooop1actually, I was looking for some help with my sound recording10:22
Arma_I didn;t start the project yet, I got the computers today, soo I'm doing research10:22
rwwooo, that looks useful10:22
p1oooop1i cannot record sound for whatever reason... ALSA not working right?10:22

icerootindus: if you think a firewall is for hiding an ip you are very very wrong12:34

DaemonFCthe fact that the system replies "port is closed" is already far too much, because now they know there is a system there12:35

indusrww, hello , thanks12:39
DaemonFCindus, sudo ufw enable && sudo ufw default deny and never worry about it again, good for most desktop users12:39
icerootindus: again, you dont need a firewall on your system12:39
indusrww, so i ask again, when firefox is running, it doesnt open port 80?i saw that in preferences too12:39
icerootindus: nmap -p 80 localhost    while firefox is running12:40
DaemonFCiceroot, If it won't hurt anything but it will stop port scanners from knowing there is a machine at that address, where is the harm?12:40
becker_11indus: it uses port 80 to get http traffic but it doesn't open it or listen on it12:40
icerootDaemonFC: a virusscanner on linux can make your system also safer....12:40
rwwDaemonFC: deny is the ufw default now, so it's even easier than that :)12:40
=== ae86-drifter1 is now known as ae86-drifter
indusbecker_11, could you tell me a little what means to get http traffic12:41
becker_11indus: a browser also uses port 443 and possibly 2112:41
DaemonFCiceroot, I wouldn't go as far as a virus scanner until there actually are viruses out there, but iptables settings don't slow a PC down12:41
DaemonFCor get confused and delete pieces of the OS :)12:41
archboxmanindus: this is a subject that takes you to learn your system... There is no way for anyone in here to say a piece of hardware is not opening a port you need to look at your system...12:41
rww"sudo ufw enable" and you're done :)12:41
DaemonFCvirus scanners do that to Windows users in a comedy of errors :)12:41
vasaniflema: 160 GB harddrive one year old12:41
icerootDaemonFC: but there is no reason for a firewall12:42
icerootDaemonFC: unless you want some routing12:42
induswell,in my router my firewall is enabled. what is that for?12:42
adri_I cannot use alt to type additional characters on Ubuntu 9.10. I checked xev and I don't get a KeyPress/KeyRelease event when I press any of the alt keys, only a KeyMapNotify.12:42
icerootindus: its getting offtopic12:42
ndlovuis there not some way to tell tar to ignore all directories above the current directory?12:42
indusit is?12:42
DaemonFCiceroot, There's some reason to turn it on, it provides some protection at no overhead and very low risk of interfering with anything legit12:43
icerootindus: of course12:43
DaemonFCThat's kind of how I view it12:43
Zusis anyone having issue with volume  in firefox on youtube?  dont hear anything...(my rythmbox and system does fine)12:43
DaemonFCI also have all apparmor policies installed and enforced12:43

vasanI got grub 5 error... how to solve this???12:43
motaka2can anyone help me figuring out for having native ttf configured on my php what should package should i download ?12:43
abhi_nav_whats the exact purpose and target audience of xfce?12:44
DaemonFCabhi_nav_, Stripped down desktop for old PCs mainly I believe is the target audience12:44
archboxmanindus: I told you already hardware is different and everyones setup is different .... You need to look up basic setups... I could buy a Cisco router that has firewall, Webserver and a server built in one does this make it good perhaps ,but it is all how you use security...12:44
becker_11abhi_nav_: xfce is for systems that are slightly older than the latest and greatest and for users that don't want alot of overhead on their systems12:44
indusbecause, i remember using zonealarm in windows, so was wondering about ubuntu12:45
becker_11abhi_nav_: I like xfce because it is lighter than gnome and runs faster on my system12:45
abhi_nav_DaemonFC: & becker_11: ok should i install it on my ubuntu to get more speed and performance? I now have gnome12:45
indusand zonealarm keeps saying this attempt blvocked etc even though i dont run anhy web servers12:45
icerootindus: for what you need a firewall?12:45
DaemonFCindus, Totally different thing. ufw is just a way to set iptables, which is built into the kernel.12:45
KenjiroI would like to know where I can check the './configure' options I need to compile openldap-2.3.30 (an old version) so it will be in conformity with ubuntu standards12:46
icerootindus: sorry but you even dont know what firefox is doing when surfing12:46
becker_11abhi_nav_: sure12:46
DaemonFCZonealarm is an entire filtering engine full of bloat sitting in userspece and tapped into your TCP/IP stack12:46
abhi_nav_DaemonFC: & becker_11: ok thnx12:46
indusiceroot, thats what iam asking whether i need it or not, iam not running anything12:46
indusiceroot, i dont like your tone btw12:46
DaemonFCindus, Zonealarm is a resource sapper like most Windows security software, ufw jsut writes iptables settings and has almost no overhead12:47
Stargazefolx my gpg --clearsign won't work12:47
Stargazehints & tips pls? :)12:47
archboxmaniceroot: that was not nice give him a break :)12:47
icerootindus: you dont need a firewall on a linux-desktop-pc    maybe you need a firewall if you are using vpn at home to your company and want protect others from the lan to go through the vpn tunnel12:47
indusanyways, i dont have any more questions, ill google it12:47
morenaalguieen k able español?12:47
rwwubottu: es | morena12:47
ubottumorena: En la mayoría de canales de Ubuntu se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español o charlar entra en el canal #ubuntu-es. Escribe "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y dale a enter.12:47
abhi_nav_assume a condition where, anyhow my host ubuntu is unable to connect to internet by any menas. then will my clean installation of guest ubuntu on vm wll connect to internet? (assume that no hardware prob. every hardware is in ok condition)12:47
icerootindus: maybe you want something like a router/nat12:47
indusiceroot, i have a router given by my isp, which has firewall enabled in it anyways12:48
viliny_indus, not beating around the bush - firestarter seems like the program you want12:48
archboxmanindus: just keep in mind this can be complex... you need to take inventory of all the hardware and its abilities, but you need to start at basics of security...12:48
indusiceroot, anyway thanks , ill read more about this somewhere else12:48
DaemonFCon Windows machines, I just leave the built in "firewall" going because third party software makes the s
