ZykoticK9asathoor, there isn't a wacom factoid - but you can use "/msg ubottu wacom" to see that for yourself00:01
Hellhound666I have a cap file thats over 20000 and  the program keeps telling me to try with a larger file over and over.00:01
Hellhound666Am I just not using the right algorithm to crack it with?00:01

LameBucketclickme: I already tried that.. it would just crash and wouldnt work.00:06
spartan07have OO 3.1 on Ubuntu 9.1. I wanted to know if there was somewhere I could find icons for the applications? not the application icons but the actual buttons when looking at for example open office writer?00:06
juan1need to make a wifi, just like the network-manager does, but on CLI00:06
LameBucketActionParsnip: can i set one up from the terminal.. its all i can see righ tnow..00:07
juan1how to?00:07
clickmeLameBucket: you be willing to download the live CD and installing it again00:07
ActionParsnipLameBucket: sure its just a text file00:07
MgMtactionparsnip that didnt seem to work00:07
asathoorthanx joeG - I have read http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/ and some Ubuntu fora00:07
umbra_when "http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=688872" refers to "the location of the CD tree" what is meant?  Is this the path to the cd writer?00:08
brjannspartan07: do you mean the actual images that are used for the application icons?00:09
LameBucketActionParsnip: could you help me do that?00:09
joeGasathoor http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1321238  This worked for me.00:09
ActionParsnipumbra_: its the files and folders which will make up the ISO00:09
asathoorjoeG >> thanx I'll look into it00:09
spartan07brjann: nope the buttons when you open up say writer like the open button or undo button00:09
ZykoticK9LameBucket, to create an xorg see http://sites.google.com/site/alucidfs/how-i-do/create-an-xorg-conf-file00:10
ActionParsnipLameBucket: sudo Xorg -configure    will make a skeletal file, you can then add settings etc00:10
LameBucketclickme: I have already downloaded it twice.. its not the cd.. its the resolution that it puts it in is not one my tv can use.. so i used the text installer to install it..00:10
LaughingLionhey, i'm having some problems installing ubuntu00:10
ActionParsnipLaughingLion: did you MD5 test the file you downloaded? did yuo verify the media once created?00:10
asathoorjoeG > this guide looks interesting, there are more details than the previous ones - so I'll give it a try00:10
LaughingLioni went through the steps on the live-cd, but when i restarted it takes me to a blank screen with grub on it00:11
LaughingLionno i don't think so :(00:11
IdleOneHow can I get a Move To Directory option in the right click menu of nautilus?00:11
joeGasathoor, you can pretty much copy/paste the codes given in the post to the command line and let it rip.00:11
MOzartHello i have an idea in the sandbox and i would like to know that you think about it here it is: Idea #23904: Sort applications also by Name/Populariy/Rate etc in Ubuntu Software Center00:11
umbra_ActionParsnip, I'm afraid I'm still lost with that... How does the "CD Tree" refer to files and folders used to make up the iso when it sounds like a directory?00:11
juan1need to make a wifi, just like the network-manager does, but on CLI, How to?00:11
Jon-juan1: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=25885700:12
ActionParsnipumbra_: the directory structure in an OS is like a tree with branches being folders and subfolders being branches off that, files can be considered as leaves00:12
juan1thanks Jon-00:12
Jon-juan1: Just googled it. :P00:12
umbra_ActionParsnip, Yes, but then is the reference to a directory where the files will be placed?00:12
ActionParsnipLaughingLion: then you have no way of knowing if the data you downloaded is complete and error free and nor do you know if the media creation was 100% succesful do you?00:13
ActionParsnipumbra_: thats all i know dude00:13
brjannspartan07: like these? http://ui.openoffice.org/VisualDesign/OOo_galaxy.html00:13
LameBucketZykoticK9: I am using an nvidia and so it tells me to do "sudo nvidia-xconfig" and when i run it it says that the command was not found..00:13
umbra_ActionParsnip, thanks man00:13
LaughingLioni guess not, but i had another operating system on my computer and i can't boot that either now00:13
LaughingLioni think it's a problem with grub00:13
ActionParsnipLaughingLion: check the iso, check the cd00:14
asathoorjoeG - yea so that's the action then. I log off and try. Thanx for your answr00:14
LaughingLionhow do i do that :)?00:14
zvacetI have small problem with wicd is anybody willing to help00:14
ZykoticK9LameBucket, perhaps you don't have the nvidia driver/programs installed.  You can use the non-nvidia method right now.00:14
benccsomething on my server is eating all the disk space. how can I check what is it?00:14
spartan07brjann: yes like that. Is there a place with alot of them. I could not find any @ gnome art00:14
brjannspartan07: well, there are a few more here: http://ui.openoffice.org/VisualDesign/OOo_icon_evolution.html00:15
ActionParsnipbencc: remove unnecessary kernels is a great way to claw back space, as is bleachbit00:15
MatBoycan someone recommend an external 56K modem which is recognized well under ubuntu ?00:15

benccActionParsnip:  I need to find what taking space because it'll eat everything I'll clear00:16
LameBucketZykoticK9: its still doing the same thing.. nothing is on the TV besides "Not Support!" after i did the non nvidia00:17
MatBoyActionParsnip: some modems are just not detected00:17
juan1Jon-: i trying to do the opposite, not to JOIN a wifi, but "Create a New Wifi" option just like network-manager does, but on CLI00:17
ZykoticK9LameBucket, does it really say "Not Support!" that isn't even english really00:17
LaughingLionActionParsnip: How do i check the cd?00:17
LameBucketZykoticK9: yes... it really says that..00:17
spartan07I looked on openoffice site, but did not even know there was a Visual Design site. Thank you. Is there a way to have openoffice use the icons from ubuntu? for example Im using moblin icons and when I use abiword, abiword uses the style.00:17
ZykoticK9LameBucket, what sort of TV is this?00:18
LameBucketVizio VW26L00:18
ActionParsnipLaughingLion: its on the first screen you see when you boot the cd00:18
Jon-juan1: Talk to someone else I am not that good with CLI lol, I just googled it for you last time.00:18

linxehl7: hmm, I guess not then. is it a compressed filesystem ?01:05
l7and it doesn't understand partimagefs01:05
linxehl7: I always just use dd to create my images, then they can easily be mounted etc01:05
l7linxeh: yeah, as far as i know which is not very much01:05
kellyhisix: nm-applet should already be loaded/running, should be a icon next to the clock on the top01:05
l7google reveals a lot of hits for people asking how to do this, but no answers on how01:05
l7linxeh: yeah i wanted to use dd, but the resulting image files were a bit larger than i wanted01:06
frohiffymcdiffy, i'm just guessing here, make sure /mnt/disk exists, and grep <your username> /etc/password reveals your correct uid01:06
l7i think partimage understands how to skip over empty areas which is nice01:06
l7but unmountable images are annoying01:06
frohiffymcdiffy, /dev/sda1 is thefirst partition on your disk01:06
ActionParsnipl7: did you select max compression?01:06

ubuntuNewBeRed_Hamster, okay so I can use the cacert.pem to create new certs and sign them?01:13

DasEiolskolirc: aaaah, so you're on the wrong path then01:47
olskolircI got that sebsebseb01:47
taofdwill Lucid's UNR hit day 1? or does it usually trail the official release?01:47
olskolircwhat DasEi01:47
DasEiolskolirc: run following commands from safe mode or trml-line01:47
Tartarosolskolirc: heh. you didnt include the description of real problem (other than "stuck") and since this channel is about karmic- then we will probably recommend to install karmic :P01:48
benccbrjann: thanks01:48
olskolircok wait let me have him get out of nano DasEi01:48
tenshinonekotartaros: well the problem i have is in hosts. right now the host name is "ubuntu" should i just change every ubuntu for "newname"01:48
taofdfor some reason when using sensors, it says my adaptor's critical temp is 63 degress C... this seems kind of low... are there consequences of it's "critical" temp being set this low, or does it not matter?01:48
Tartarostenshinoneko: how is that a problem?01:48

[_miT_]unitedpotsmokers: dood... dood.01:48
DasEiolskolirc: ctrl-x to quit nano01:48
dj_segfaulttaofd: That means it's not reading the sensors.  Mine does the same thing01:48
unitedpotsmokershi there.. good morning01:49
tenshinonekotartaros: well cuz there's one place in hosts that says "ubuntu-domain" so i'm not sure if i need to change thatone to "newname-domain" sorry im a n00b xD01:49
Tartarosolskolirc: what part of "this channel is not about lucid" dont you understand :)01:49
taofddj_segfault, what do you mean? :D01:49
dj_segfaulttaofd: Could be an unsupported sensor chip01:49
Tartarostenshinoneko: I'd suggest not touching it when it works01:49
olskolircthis was the same issue with karamic too Tartaros thats why we upgraded hoping it would be better01:49
olskolircits the same01:49
DasEiolskolirc: also, is that lucid ? well, meet me over there, then01:49

MgMtyep01:56
MgMtfresh install and updated01:56
dj_segfaulttaofd: Hmm.  From what I've seen when it says 63C that means it's not reading the sensor, but maybe your case is different.  What program are you reading the temp with?01:56
tony_Some one can help me, because when to start my pc all my personal file are copied to my desktop01:56

benccdj_segfault:  that's what I'm using: http://dpaste.com/168870/ isn't it?02:00
[_miT_]dj_segfault: i just go by Dj Tim, or just Tim. lol02:00
brjannbencc: it's probably that the server isn't being properly notified that it needs to close its existing file handles and reopen the file. i'd double-check your post-rotate command02:00
[_miT_]dj_segfault: minimal-techno, downtempo, electro, ect02:00
[_miT_]MgMt: which options?02:00
dj_segfaultbencc: Looks right for me.02:00
benccbrjann: is it possible that I need to put sudo in the postrotate command?02:01

MgMt[_miT_] the main universe restricted and multiverse02:01
MgMtyes02:01
Tartaroswhat script/program is used by ubuntu installer to generate fstab?02:01
MgMt[_miT_] now i see it, those were all checked02:01

[_miT_]MgMt: on that first tab 'Ubuntu Software', there are check boxes for them02:01
mohadib_when i try to view a png in firefox, view it directly, it tries to open in another app, can i have FF just display the png itself?02:01
benccdj_segfault:  should it work when forcing rotate with: 'sudo logrotate -f /etc/logrotate.conf' ?02:01
[_miT_]MgMt: ok then close both software sources and software center02:02
[_miT_]MgMt: System -> Administration -> Update manager02:02
MgMt[_miT_] ok02:02
skritei need a reccomendation for a great file sync app. I don't need it as a backup program, but rather will compare two folders and their contents and show me the differences so i can reconsile them as i like02:02
[_miT_]MgMt: hit check, make sure you're hitting the sources we have checked02:02
benccbrjann: when running manually kill -USR1 `cat /usr/local/nginx/logs/nginx.pid` it works fine02:02
[_miT_]MgMt: i.e. Main, Universe, ect02:03
tony_what's option a should to desacctivate because all my personal file when a reboot the pc show me on the desktop02:03
mohadib_anyone? when i try to view a png in firefox, view it directly, it tries to open in another app, can i have FF just display the png itself?02:03
brjannbencc: meaning that it switches back to the real log file when you SIGUSR1 it manually?02:03
MgMt[_miT_] it says i updated less than an hour ago02:03
DasEiskrite: man diff02:03
benccbrjann: yes02:03
[_miT_]MgMt: thats fine, check it again02:03
MgMti did, it didnt do anything02:03
skriteDasEi, thanks02:04
Tartarosmohadib_: this depends on what mime type is the http server telling your browser the png file is02:04
dj_segfaultbencc: That looks right but I'm not a logrotate expert.  I just know when I did * instead of *.log I ended up with tens of thousands of files in the log directory after a few months02:04
[_miT_]MgMt: :/ you didnt see the update window hit the servers?02:04
MgMtwhat do you mean hit the servers?02:04
dj_segfaultbencc: It took over half an hour to delete them all02:04
[_miT_]MgMt: "Download package information"02:04
benccdj_segfault: sound like fun02:04
[_miT_]MgMt: you'll see it checking the server sources we have checked (Main, Restricted, ect)02:05

craigin alsamixer now... looking around, thanks... I'll let you know what I find02:21

taofdanyone know?02:25
m0arSome doesn't make sense, but still have a card in the deck02:25
Tartaroswhats wrong with pulse?02:25
m0arTartaros: Can't put my finger on it, but hell02:25
m0arTartaros: It doesn't work nearly as well as alsa02:25
[_miT_]Tartaros: nothing, usually. but i, along with many others, have a lot of problems with it02:25
TartarosIn my movie players, if I select alsa for audio, it keeps getting stuck, whereas with pulse it's ok...02:25
m0arTartaros: Small bugs, doesn't work as it should02:26
craigyup checked everything, no sound still02:26
[_miT_]Tartaros: when it works, it works wonderfully. but when it doesnt, its the worst thing in the world.02:26
maxjezycraig, turn up volume to 150 % and i think it will work02:26
Alan502will empathy still be included in lucid02:26
m0arTartaros: Since you HAVE pulse. Remove it, and alsa works well02:26
m0arAlan502: Yes02:26
m0armaxjezy: Wtf?02:26
Tartarosm0ar: interesting theory. how does one remove pulse anyway?02:26
m0arTartaros: purge pulseaudio02:26
maxjezym0ar, it's a bug, many people have it that i heard of02:26
DasEim0ar: pulse is not be compared to alsa, as it acts as a sound-proxy, not s-system ( like oss or alsa)02:26
Tartarosand where lies the future, alsa or pulse? or something else?02:27
craigyeah its at 150% .... interesting, maybe unrelated... I dont have a mic but in sound preferences the input level is flashing02:27
m0arDasEi: Still causes trouble, irrelevant what it really is. What is a baldrog? Not really sure, but it hell screwws things up02:27
tony_ what's option I should to desactivate in the desktop, because all my personal file when a reboot the pc show me on the desktop02:28
tony_somebody knows?02:28
maxjezycraig, did it do the trick?02:28
[_miT_]tony_: that doesnt make sense :( wish i could help02:28
craigno it didnt02:28
DasEim0ar: different experiences on my side, but I had to get the idea of pulse first, too, was also confused as it appears in one line with alsa, oss02:28

tony_mit ok02:28
knottydreads87i imagine this is very unlikely but is there anyway to send a wake up ping to a ubuntu computer that is shutdown?02:28
maxjezythen i have no idea02:28
tony_mit when I restar my pc02:28
[_miT_]knottydreads87: thats called "wake on lan". your mobo has to support it02:29
craig"eah its at 150% .... interesting, maybe unrelated... I dont have a mic but in sound preferences the input level is flashing" just in case it flashed by too quick02:29
tony_all the file in my user it is in my desktop02:29
m0artony_: Explain.02:29
knottydreads87[_miT_], oh, thats right. i'll see if my mobo does02:29
mawstWhat do I need to do to add ident2 to init.d?02:29
tony_ok02:29
tony_I have my desktop clear02:30
tony_and when I restar my pc my desktop in full of file02:30
[_miT_]tony_: what files?02:30
tony_the file of my home02:30
tony_user02:31
craigok well, thanks very much for trying ... I appreciate it... I think I may have to learn a bit more about ubuntu if I hope to have sound02:31
tony_you undestand what I mean?02:31
[_miT_]tony_: sounds like something you installed is dumping those files there. very strange. i would create a second "test user" account and see if they get the files dumped onto the desktop as well02:31
tony_ok02:32
a359is there a way to get watch (/usr/bin/watch) output in color? e.g. $watch -n5 ls --color  <--doesnt work for me.02:32
[_miT_]a359: thats a great idea :)02:32
a359rephrase my question: Does /usr/bin/watch have color support?02:33
knottydreads87[_miT_], lets assume by mobo has wake up on lan enabled. how do you initiate the the wake up?02:34
[_miT_]a359: i recall playing with a terminal that had color support for logs and such, but i dont remember the name of it :(02:34
[_miT_]knottydreads87: thats something you have to research for your mobo, i honestly have never set that up before.02:34
a359[_miT_]: yeah I was wondering if this is a terminal issue or what. I tried a few differnt ones, no luck.02:34
knottydreads87[_miT_], thanks! it does seem like something kinda complicated02:35
[_miT_]knottydreads87: the concept is pretty simple, you send a "knocking" packet to the mobo and it turns itself on02:35
[_miT_]knottydreads87: when your box is powered off, you'll notice that the LAN link light is still active. its basically listening for that "knocking" packet02:36
knottydreads87[_miT_], yes i have seen that02:36

Colonel_Panika359, you talking console terminal or xterminal in a windowmanager?02:41
SouperfI interrupted the Ubuntu install process by shutting down the computer during its file copy stage. Since then, the HDD I tried to install it on reports as full, even thuogh it was empty. I can't make partitions on it in Gparted (liveCD), the only option is "unmount" (even though it's not mounted) which gives me an error. How can I completely format/restore that drive?02:42
[_miT_]Souperf: whoa, you cant delete and recreate the partitions?02:42
Souperfmit: nope, the only option is Unmount, but as I said, it's not even mounted. I've tried booting the LivdCD several times.02:43
[_miT_]Souperf: you can try to unmount from terminal, maybe gparted is being lazy ;)02:43

syriuswhat happened to all the old ones it use to have in the older releases?03:28
bjb1959I didn't think so....03:29
xanguasyrius: 'gnome look'03:29
Dr_Willissyrius:  theres the gnome look theme sites. and proberly some still in the repos.03:29
revoBlackcamaro8: dont install any restricted gpu drivers if you want it to be truly portabkle03:29
syriusI noticed the ones frrom art gnome dot work integrate better with gnome than with gome look dot ord03:29
Dr_Willisgotta love a collection of 10,000 theme parts.. most of which are so nasty you cant stand them :)03:29
syriusI dislike the ones frrom gnome looked03:29
syriusthey don't work very well03:29
Dr_Willissyrius:  theres a lot of theme ppa collections out also03:29
syriusthere is always some app tha doesn't work well03:30
Dr_WillisIve never noticed an app that dident work well.. just some of the theme parts are ugly.03:30
Blackcamaro8revo: Figured that. Lol. Drivers are 'attached' to ONE specific line of device.03:30
syriuslike I just install art-gnome.org and they work flawlessly03:30
syriusthe ones from gnome-look.org I always have some app that doesn't get integrated well with the theme03:31
Dr_Willissyrius:  they are all just user submited themes. so you just have to watch out for what ones you use03:31
=== pauljw_vm is now known as pauljw
syriuslike firefox will be hard to read because the color didn't get right in the addons window03:31
Dr_WillisI proberly got 100+ theme/parts in my .themes dir ive collected over the years03:31
Dr_Willisfirefox is themeable in itself.. so  that may be more of a FF issue.03:31
marcobxbro1anyone has a u301 EV-DO working with ubuntu?03:31

syriusnot a custom one for firefox03:32
Dr_Willissyrius:  they are all user submited.. if you find an issue with one.. post to the themes forum/thread/notes on the site.03:32
Dr_Willissome usesr make them better then others..  its not a issue with the web site.03:33
shubbarfrom where do i manage system processes?03:33
nanotubedarkstar1: system -> preferences -> preferred applications03:33
xanguasyrius: a lot of themes in gnome look use other gtk engines wich you may have not installed and that is because they don't work in your system03:33
nanotubedarkstar1: or something to that effect...03:33
syriuswell how do I find themes made by devs?03:33
darkstar1nanotube: Thanks03:33
Dr_WillisYea the whole gtk-engine stuff is often get goofy03:33
Dr_Willissyrius:  look in the package manager for starters.03:33
shubbari want the printer process to start on startup, now i do it manually03:33
Dr_Willissyrius:  and theres several theme PPA repos out that are better tested03:33
syriusyes I know that xangua usually the dev will say you need this package or what ever03:33
frozzenHey! waz up!03:34

mr-grey2sorry guys i'm a noob at linux i'm trying to learn it quickly so i don't ask stupid questions... but also a stupid question is a question that has not been asked yet03:43
Dr_WillisBiggest 'danger' ive seen to ubuntu systems are  people breaking their own systems because they think they know what they are doing.....03:43
mr-grey2:)03:43
Dr_Willis:)03:43
DasEibypass: install putty on xp, have a ssh on your home box, register with dns if no static ip there ( as typical), consider changing port, securing, further look into portknocking (advanced)03:43
SamualI'm on 9.04 and when I try to do a sources update it is stuck at 99% -- Waiting for headers.03:44
AlienDKwait for it03:44
javatexanamen...and I am good at doing that, I have since learned to read and then ask to be sure  :)03:44
SamualI'm aware it's out of date, but 9.10 disappointed me a lot, and I don't want to upgrade.03:44
AlienDKok03:44
Dr_WillisSamual:  ive noticed some servers a little slow lately. but eventyally mine completes03:44
SamualAny way I can fix this without breaking things?03:44

bypassDasEi i installed openssh server already and have static dns made03:44

mr-grey2Well i was reading that site Dr_Willis with the permissions etc, but vista and 7 started doing the simular thing asking you permission to run files etc but they get infected constently03:46
bypassbut dont know what to do next03:46
bypassi tried gstm gui configure but its not doing anything03:46
DasEibypass: you have to allow forwarding x, and putty just needs the ip and the port of ssh, for bypassing /w browser needed least a ssl-able proxy03:46
helluplinemr-grey2, that's because, inside the sistem. still is possible the write over sistem files03:47
DasEibypass: better approach is to forward x over ssh and use home machines browser03:47

khiderhatake_kakashi: The tera-byte is blank04:56
khiderhatake_kakashi: How do you suggest I proceed?04:56
hatake_kakashikhider, it isn't, there's a partition table setup for it04:56
hatake_kakashikhider, look at your output of fdisk -l and tell me that /dev/sdb isn't blank04:57
khiderhatake_kakashi: Okay, I was trying to format it but I guess I screwed up.04:57
hatake_kakashikhider, and what are your intentions with that spare terabyte hard disk? use it as a whole and start clean?04:57
ShadeSso it keeps freezing on 33% of the format, and my scroll andcaps lock keep flashing..04:58

khiderhatake_kakashi: Yesh, is it possible?04:59
apersonis there a gnome equivalent to kooldock?04:59

[_miT_]Aeronius: indeed05:09
jo-erlendShadeS, why do you say that?05:10
hatake_kakashikhider, I wouldn't worry about sanity, a simple editing of partition tables, delete all partitions on that disk, create one partition and simply let gparted run its process05:10
=== ce_muaniest_ is now known as ce_sany
=== ce_sany is now known as ce_sanny
adante[_miT_]: dpkg -s asterisk says it is installed? is there a second level of installation i need to perform?05:10
fekhelllllo05:11
[_miT_]adante: thats odd. are there conf files you want to keep? why not just purge and do a fresh install?05:11
fekI got a quick question that I hope someone can answer05:11
[_miT_]fek: just ask05:11
rwwShadeS: Linux uses SCSI emulation on IDE drives. Has done for years now.05:11
jo-erlendShadeS, /dev/sdx is used by libata as well, so ide drives will also use it. There is no /dev/hdx anymore.05:11
adante[_miT_]: i did purge, and then i installed, and /etc/asterisk is empty, and then i ran dpkg-reconfigure asterisk, and it is still empty05:11
ShadeSbecause when i look at the motherboard it's clearly a 40pin connected to IDE1 yet thew disk partitioner reads SCSI1 (0,0,0) (sda) 61.5 GB ATA ic35L060AVER07-005:11
=== mf2_ is now known as mf2
ShadeSoh05:11
racerdhow do i install 190 nvidia drivers?05:11
[_miT_]adante: are you positive that the asterisk package uses /etc/ ?05:12
ShadeSwhy is it freezing on at 33% then?05:12
hatake_kakashiracerd, through hardware drivers05:12
samlhow can I blacklist sdhci? it looks like once i install from livecd, sdhci.blacklist=yes is not valid05:12
fekI have a friend who has a macbook and it took a dive on her....I have her hard drive hooked up to my box and can see her stuff but it says I dont have the correct permissions to access her folder?05:12
racerdonly 185 is available05:12
adante[_miT_]: nope, i am not, that is why i was asking if there was a way of telling what dpkg-reconfigure did05:12
fekHow can I remedy this...I tried to go into permissions but that doesnt give me an option05:12
hatake_kakashisaml, you'll need to access your ubuntu installation and manually add blacklist sdhci05:13
adante[_miT_]: of course i'm still not sure why dpkg-reconfigure would complain about no /etc/asterisk directory and then not do anything when there was one05:13
khiderhatake_kakashi: Okay, it is wiped--what is teh next step?05:13
racerdi downloaded 190 and it is a .run05:13
[_miT_]adante: have you tried 'man asterisk' yet?05:13
racerdwhere do i throw that to have the hardware drivers app find it?05:13
[_miT_]adante: might have further documentation on setup, folders, ect05:13
hatake_kakashikhider, try mounting it if you can, copy your /home contents across and edit your /etc/fstab05:14
adante[_miT_]: well i have used asterisk in other distros, it uses /etc/asterisk, i don't know about ubuntu05:14
samlhatake_kakashi: i mounted /dev/sda1  from livecd and chroot ed to /mnt/sda105:14
samlwhich file do I edit?05:14
hatake_kakashisaml, /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf05:14
khiderhatake_kakashi: how do I label it /home?05:14
racerdsoooo what do with this .run file to install the drivers?05:14
hatake_kakashiracerd, I wouldn't recommend doing that05:15
samlhatake_kakashi: thanks05:15
xanguaracerd: have you tried 'envy' ¿¿05:15
racerdrecommend doing what?05:15
hatake_kakashikhider, you don't need to label it, specifying it in mount is more than enough05:15
racerdenvy?05:15
[_miT_]adante: have you tried 'locate asterisk' to see where all its files are?05:15
xanguafor installing nvidia or ati drivers05:15
hatake_kakashiracerd, recommend installing it manually, if you screw it up in the process you may not be able to gain further support from here05:16

Dr_WillisUbuntu tends to follow a 6 mo. release cycle. so the latest versions of stuff is not always  the 'supported' version05:21

markdwhat do i do05:23
[_miT_]adante: have you thought about compiling it from source? the package in the repos might be dated.05:23
hatake_kakashikhider, the specifying passwd most likely means that only root can mount block devices which is typical.. as for fstab, you'll need to add an entry for that newly created disk to be /home.. think about it05:23
khiderhatake_kakashi: Okay, makes sense05:24
hatake_kakashifek, you don't have to, you can simply use sudo and then chown05:24
jiehanhatake_kakashi: Thanks, I will.05:24
fekI dont know how to do that05:24

racerdyeah i know, but i really just want to fix my sound05:25
fekor rather hard?05:25
racerdi was asking if that was an option with 9.10 or not05:25
hatake_kakashimarkd, do you have a spare network cable that you could plug it into the computer? or somehow share a network connection?05:25
fekI have my terminal up right now05:25

ubottumarkd: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?05:31
Dr_Willisfek:  or you could CAREFULLY run nautilus file manager as root with 'gkduso nautilus /media/whateverthat#was'05:32
Dr_Willisfek:  then copy the stuff somewhere05:32
Dr_Willisbe sure to CLOSE that nautilus window when done.05:32

Dr_WillisThis is why i susggested the mc file manager.. a little safer that way05:33

Dr_Williskhider:  its not even partioned..  you must partion it and put a filesystem on it05:38
khiderDr_Willis: Yeah05:38
fekDr_Willis: ...should I preserve attributes when copying the directory over?05:38
Dr_Williskhider:  use gparted.05:38
Dr_Willisfek:  Depends on what  the fs is and what data is on it. and what fs you are copying it to05:39
khiderDr_Willis: I formatted it--it says tera-byte but only 931 G is available, what happened tp 70G05:39
Dr_Williskhider:  fdisk, (partition), format, mount. :)  and why do you have a 'noauto' option in the fstab? and the mountpoint directory /media/1000??? MUST exist befor you can mount it.05:40

Dr_Willis!grub2 | rimdeker05:41
ubotturimdeker: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager in Karmic. For more information and troubleshooting on GRUB2 please refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub205:41
Dr_Willisgrub1 and grub2 use diffrent configs05:41
khiderDr_Willis: The name of the tera-byte can be fixed, I was trying different names to get it to work--including logical names, so far no dice05:42
rimdekerBut as far as I know mine is not Grub205:42
fekI dont see a foler in there yet even though it is running?  Should I be able to see the folder?05:42
Dr_Williskhider:  the MOUNTPOINT 'name' must exist.. the /dev/sdXXX is the device name.05:42
Dr_Williskhider:  you can mount it whever you want05:42
Dr_Williskhider:  and you dont need all the options you are using in your /etc/fstab for the sdb2 entry05:42

Jordan_URuge, It's not possible to run final cut studio except with OSX in a VM ( which I think is currently illegal ). You might be interested in Ubuntu Studio though.05:45

rimdekerDr_Willis: That link is useless. As I said, there is no menu.lst in my grub folder. I cannot do as told in that link of yours.05:46
Dr_Willisrimdeker:  grub2 does NOT have a menu.lst it has its own set of configs.  You need to edit the proper configs for whtever version of grub you are using05:47
Dr_Willisrimdeker:  if you are using grub1 you should have a menu.lst , since you dont. either its been deleted (doubtfull) or you are using grub205:47

airtonixrodnie, 1) if you copy paste stuff from there verbatim, your going to get errors (dont include the $ ) 2)  it talks about changing the input device via xorg.conf 3) it doesn't explain how to start the process properly ( you need to open gnome-terminal >> press alt+f2 and type gnome-terminal, then follow steps on the page )06:02

Dagon Are there known bugs with Ubuntu 9.10? I'm having some issues with audio when I multi task it example: Running a media player and playing GL games, also sound just becomes static during gameplay07:26

nixjrardchoille, i dont remember hitting some "updated to 9.10" button07:33
DaZhtpc: nothing's wrong then.07:33
ardchoillenixjr: Are you sure you installed 9.04 instead of 9.10? When did you download the iso?07:33
DaZhtpc: run gnome-terminal and start nautilus and gnome-panel07:33
deostrolljordan_u download rate is only 10.4 kb/s should I rely on this again?07:34
nixjrardchoille, it was definately 9.04, i got a pressed disc here, i find it unsettling that i managed to make a major chnage liek that without realising it07:35
ardchoillenixjr: Well, look at it this way, you're more up to date than you were :)07:35
nixjrardchoille, the reason i ask is i just ran "sudo apt-get build-dep rhythmbox" and it says "130 newly installed", as you might of guessed im new to linux, is it normal for it to need so many dependencies?07:37
htpcDaZ, says it cannot start gnome-panel because one is already running. i moved my mouse up and it went off screen, right clicked and it was the menu for right clicking the panel. i guess it's just off screen. do you know how to fix it?07:37
alankilanixjr: probably so. rhythmbox is media application so it pulls in insane amount of junk07:37
ardchoillenixjr: yeah, what alankila said07:38
DagonHas anyone expierenced problems with audio when they either run a media player such as rythum box or Audacious while playing an openGL game and have the audio completly shut off or just playing the game normally without a player going the sound becomming distorted and cuts out? I read fourms about it but I can not isolate the problem.07:38
DaZhtpc: sudo nvidia-xconfig and restart xorg07:38
ardchoillenixjr: That's the main reason I stopped using rythmbox07:38
alankilanixjr: actually, looking at the list, there's texlive, tons of x11 libs, even xulrunner07:38
DaZif you didn't do it ofcourse.07:38
alankilabut no media codecs. I guess they don't depend on gstreamer like that.07:39
nixjrardchoille, i want to use to it because its the only player i can see that has a live pitch/tempo/speed adjuster07:40
ardchoillenixjr: Ah, that makes sense07:40

krangamDaZ: Thanks. Is there any need for such files? I mean, they occupy unnecessary space?07:54
ZykoticK9brad_, use ActionParsnip parsnips "gksudo nvidia-settings" with my directions above :)  teamwork07:54
Dr_Williskrangam:  editor 'auto backups' have saved me several times like that07:55
alankilamm, that rbpitch is based on libsoundtouch. No wonder I couldn't find any implementation of the shifter algorithm there07:55

krangamDr_Willis : Thanks. I understand that I don't need to worry about such files then.07:55
brad_when I run "gksudo nvidia-settings" i get "Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0"., is that okay?07:56
ActionParsnipFrind: if the usual broadcom thingy doesn't work then use ndisgtk + winxp 32bit or 64bit driver (depending on ubuntu arch)07:56

ActionParsnipbrad_: as long as the app runs it'll be fine07:57
alankilanixjr: just satisfying my curiosity. This pitch shifter would appear to be based on a time-domain autocorrelation strategy. Good for simple audio like singing, bad for complex music because the requisite overlaps are much harder to find.07:58
brad_Xinerama is enabled, and I have each monitor set up as "Seperate X Screen" for configuration07:58
ZykoticK9brad_, not as a checkbox at the bottom?  sorry, we must have different versions of nvidia-settings or ubuntu then, and my VMs don't use nvidia, so can't test there sorry.  good luck man.07:58
ActionParsnipZykotick9: you'll have to run this one now dude. I have 1 monitor for 3 systems07:59
ZykoticK9ActionParsnip, using a kvm switch?  or software based?07:59
ActionParsnipBrad_: try adding the nvidia vpau ppa and upgrading the driver07:59
nixjralankila, i understood some of that, so i guess i shouldnt hold my breath is assuming my trance is going to sound flawless with a faster bmp?08:00
alankilato explain, this pitch shifters work by resampling the audio to a new frequency that corresponds with the desired change in pitch, and then cloning the audio data based on self-similarity so that the play length doesn't change. Or you can leave the pitch intact (no resampling) and slow down or speed up if you like.08:00

brad_ZykoticK9: I just changed it from "Seperate X Window" to "TwinView" and that option showed up, rebooting now to test08:00
alankilanixjr: it depends on parameters, the music itself, and how much change you want.08:00
Dr_WillisGoliath:  could change the file in the 'xsplash' directory  as one way. theres also tools to change it   google for 'gdm2 setup' I think is the name of one.08:01

annamaria_#ubuntu-it-chat08:01
GoliathDr_Willis: where is xsplash?08:01
alankilanixjr: but the real problem with autocorrelation is that it adds jitter. If new drum beats are supposed to occur, say, every 200 ms, the autocorrelator generally adds or removes extra sample data between the quiet periods between hits, and it doesn't usually fall out evenly on both sides of the hits -- it depends on what audio is going on at that moment -- and that makes beats slightly jittery. Whether it's noticeable is another matter.08:01
nixjralankila, may i pm you?08:01
Dr_WillisGoliath:  use 'locate xsplash' and check out the paths08:02
ActionParsnipZykotick9: tbh I use my phone to control mostly (and chat on here)08:02

DaZDagon: open sound system08:35
kthomas_vh!netiquitte08:35
mbn_18dsync: it seems openssh does not support radius. but maybe you can achive it using PAM.08:35
ActionParsnipMostafakvd: last I did any coding it was system("command here");08:35
DagonDaZ: Is that something I can collect via bash?08:35
dsyncit doesn't ?08:35
mbn_18dsync: maybe there is ssh channel/ or pam channel.08:36
dsyncwhere ?08:36
mostafakvdActionParsnip: you mean for example system("ls /home/");08:36
mostafakvdActionParsnip: yeah?08:36
mbn_18dsync: I didnt saw it on the feature list of openssh website08:36
DaZDagon: depends what do you mean by bash, there should be a package08:36
dsyncany alternative then ?08:36
theadminSay, is init/Upstart a kernel-built-in thing?08:36
ActionParsnipMostafakvd: afaik, not sure what .h its in. Ask in #c08:36
mbn_18dsync: As I said. My guessing is that it is achivable using pam. but I am not sure. ask experts.08:37
orsontheadmin: no08:37
theadminorson: Strange :/ If you kill init, you get a kernel panic08:37
mbn_18dsync: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_PAM08:38

adantehi guys, can someone recommend places other than irc and ubuntuforums to get help?08:52
theadminadante: Canonical provides commercial support, but i dunno anything else08:53
SamuelPetersonI'm having some issues finding my grub menu list. It isn't located at "/boot/grub/menu.lst"... which is problematic because I need to give information on the kernel versions to get support for the problem I'm having with the latest kernel not getting past the boot screen nor working properly in recovery mode.08:53
dnivraadante, to get help on ubuntu? this is like the best place there can be. try searching for blogs. but this channel is the best. forums is really good too.08:54
ZykoticK9adante, you can try asking a question on Launchpad at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu08:54
theadminSamuelPeterson: This file is not used by Grub2, if you're having that08:54
dnivraSamuelPeterson, grub2 right? it's grub.cfg not menu.lst.08:54
SamuelPetersondnivra, thank you.08:54
dnivraSamuelPeterson, you can get your kernel version using "uname -a" too. no problem.08:55
adantednivra: haven't had much luck here or forums, although i do appreciate their efforts, so just investigating other avenues08:55
dnivraSamuelPeterson, Run the command "uname -a" in your terminal. that'll give your kernel version too.08:55
SamuelPetersondnivra: ah, I see. How would I go about getting the versions of all the kernels installed?08:55
abo-what software is used to copy Dvd video as a AVI or MPG, k9copy is crashing all the time08:55
adantetheadmin, ZykoticK9: thanks, will check it out08:55
theadminSamuelPeterson: How about... dpkg -l | grep 'linux-image'?08:55
dnivraSamuelPeterson, That command gives you only the currently used version only ok.08:55
hatake_kakashiuname -r is more closer08:56
Dagondnivra: I did that command real quick and it says "Linux 2.6.31-20generic that the kernel I'm assuming?08:56
SamuelPetersondnivra, thanks a million.08:56
m_fulder_I've opened port 80 (TCP & UDP) on my router to forward to my ubuntu desktop..now in this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNC#Accessing your PC over the Internet    they say to open up port 22 instead .. but if I change from 80 to 22 I can't access the webpages on my desktop :S why? should I maybe not change the 80 port forwarding and just create a new 22 ???08:56
dnivraSamuelPeterson, No problem.08:56
dnivraDagon, That is the kernel version yes.08:57
xiambaxWhere can i go for lucid support?08:57
Dagondvivra: Thanks.. Sorry for the stupid questions but as I always say the only stupid question is the question that is not asked :) hehe08:57
ZykoticK9abo-, you might want to check out dvdrip (in repo), WinFF (in repo, frontend to ffmpeg) or Handbrake (not in repo, doesn't do avi or mpeg, just mp4/mkv)08:57
xiambax!lucid08:58
ubottuLucid Lynx is the codename for Ubuntu 10.04, due April 29th, 2010 - Lucid is NOT released and is NOT stable - Discussion and support only in #ubuntu+108:58
dnivraDagon, true. but it's best to be safe than sorry: ask questions good or bad. that's how learning happens. but always try to think a bit before asking: sometimes the solution might be staring in your face. course it's possible to miss it too.08:58
llutzm_fulder_: you have to forward those ports, the services are running on you want to access from outside08:58
ShapeShifter499hi08:59
ShapeShifter499I tested the y2038 bug......now I can't boot into my comp08:59
ShapeShifter499help plz08:59

m_fulder_llutz, right .. but then the port to access apache on my comp. are different from does that I want to VNC connect with?08:59
m_fulder_so I need 2 forwarding llutz ?09:00
llutzm_fulder_: sure, http=80 vnc = 5xxxx09:00
m_fulder_aha ok then I understand thanks09:00
Dagondnivra: Indeed. I'm getting the hang of all this slowly but surly09:00
ShapeShifter499theadmin: it said that I last booted into my com in dec. 1905 and it was saying that now is in the future09:01
DagonI'm the apple in the bunch that has some holds in it, maybe some worms moving about09:01
dnivraDagon, carry on like this and you'll get better in no time:).09:01

Dagondnivra: I know some of it from DOS back when I was around 13 or so I'm 29 now so I forget quite a bit09:02
theadminShapeShifter499: "fsck" usually fixes it, although with Y2038K dunno how it will... maybe you can also try setting the time with "date" command ("man date" for details)09:03

theadminShapeShifter499: MORE then enough time to fix it, i think, developers will make somethin' up09:04
m_fulder_llutz, but if my comp. is behind a router I only open up port 22 not 59xx right?09:04
Goliathi want the oxygen black cursor09:04
llutzm_fulder_: 22 = ssh09:04
llutzm_fulder_: so it makes no sense to forward it, until you use nx or vnc on different port09:04
CrAzE124I've got an error in nessus that I've been trying to fix for more than 2 weeks. I'm sure all my settings are correct but it gives me the following error: "The remote host does not seem to be a nessus server (or an SSL error occured". Now i have started nessusd, made certs, etc. What could be wrong?09:05
ShapeShifter499theadmin: yay :D  fsck fixed the dating problem09:05
m_fulder_hm llutz but in the guide there is written I should open up just port 22 and not 5900 while trying to VNC connect to my comp. through internet ... am I not configuring VNC to run through SSH now?09:05
Goliathi got a cursor from gnome looks09:06
Goliathhow do i use it09:06
m_fulder_later on there is written that I should install an SSH client while trying to connect to my comp so I guess VNC will be running thorugh SSH or? llutz09:06
theadminShapeShifter499: lol "dating"09:06
jimlovell777m_fulder_: Correct, to tunnel VNC through SSH only open port 22. I would encourage you though to change the default ssh port to something higher than 102409:07
ShapeShifter499theadmin: XD whatever09:07
llutzm_fulder_: would you please read sentence #1 in that part of the article you reffered to09:07
ShapeShifter499theadmin: all my applets crashed on the first boot after the y2038 test, than 2nd boot was fail....09:07
llutzm_fulder_: they tunnel vnc inside ssh, so you don't have vnc running on 2209:08

PomkaLKI NEED HELP. HOW CAN I AUTHORIZATE ON THE CHANNAL TO GET OPERATOR PERMITIONS(CHANNAL IS MINE)?09:09
m_fulder_jimlovell777, how can I change the SSH port from 22 to something higher ?09:09
theadminPomkaLK: Go to #freenode09:09
Dr_WillisPomkaLK:  see the freenode website also.09:10
llutzm_fulder_: read all of that article, try to understand what they do and how it works. you have vnc running locally at 5900. to access it from outside your LAN you create a ssh-tunnel on port 22, which you have to forward09:10
ShapeShifter499theadmin: everything is ok....so far....   anyways this was on my secondary comp which is highly unused09:10
theadminShapeShifter499: Hm... 1905? Unused indeed.09:11
jimlovell777gksudo gedit /etc/ssh/sshd_conf and change the port number from 22 to something else. When you run an ssh command from then on use that new number (less than 65535) like ssh -p newnumber username@hostaddress09:11
GoliathDr_Willis: didnt work09:11
Goliathi cant find it09:11
ShapeShifter499theadmin: XDD09:11
Dr_WillisGoliath:  alwyas give more details then 'it dident work'09:11
GoliathDr_Willis: i dragged it but doesnt appear at cursors09:11
m_fulder_llutz,  ok will try to understand =)09:12
Dr_WillisGoliath:  perhaps it wasent a mouse pointer theme then.09:12
GoliathDr_Willis: i was09:12
Goliathhow cani use it manually09:12
llutzm_fulder_: running ssh on ports != 22 won't increase security, it just decreases logging09:12
jimlovell777m_fulder_: Think of it like calling a friends mom but you want the friend on the phone. First you call their mom and then ask to talk with your friend. your connection uses the moms phone to get in but that's not who you wanted to talk to.... Did that help at all?09:13
theadminShapeShifter499: BTW i have this error VERY often because of a faulty CMOS battery... :/ It always resets time to 0 (aka 1st January 1970, midnight)09:14

llutzjimlovell777: that's "security by obscurity" which isn't seriously increasing security09:15

Hellhound666well it's a ps3 media server but it's excellent.09:48
dnivrarichard123, you see you have added the cd-rom to your repository and so when you upgrade, it automatically downloads the package lists again. even from the cd. i think it's safe to ignore that if the other package lists are installed.09:48

piszczubecause i wanna mount that as /home09:50
apersonArwin, I mean, switch the output?09:50
dnivrarichard123, i think it's safe to ignore: the packages you can download from cd are also available on the internet. so guess it's safe to ignore the cd-rom.09:50
llutzpiszczu: in that case, you definetly should use i.e ext4/ext309:51

Arwinaperson, where can i change the output ( sorry for bad English i'm from the netherlands )09:53

ikoniaRazvan1310: grub is installed to the master boot record of your disk, you use that to boot10:17
llutzRazvan1310: you need to copy the bootsector into a file on your win-partition and add it to boot.ini10:17

conb123Anyone aware of how I can disable a compiz effect for a certain application? Because I have the vacuum open animation on, but it uses it in python idle all the time which is very distracting.10:19
ikoniaMoat: there are guides on the internet, you need to strip the audo and video files out, then re-encode10:20
Moatso how do i use mencoder? i have an .avi movie that keeps going out of sync10:20
Moatikonia link to one of these guides?10:20
ikoniasabgenton: why would you want to do that as it won't work, resolv.conf (not resolve.conf) user nameserver $address, not just $address10:20
ikoniaMoat: there are plenty on the net,10:20
Dr_WillisMoat:  the mencoder and i also rcall 'ffmpeg' faq's mention how to fix such problems10:20

zetherooikonia: http://paste.ubuntu.com/390226/10:21
sabgentonikonia: whats your point?10:21
Razvan1310llutz: so how can i install grub loader without alter my partitions10:21
llutzRazvan1310: reinstall grub with partition as target10:21
ikoniasabgenton: that a.) address > resolv.conf won't work as the format is "nameserver $address" b.) why don't you either set it properly, or let dhcp set it for you10:22
MoatDr_WIllis and ikonia, what would i GOOGLE then?10:22
ikoniazetheroo: are you ssh'd into the machine ?10:22
Dr_WillisRazvan1310:  grub dosent alter the partions10:22
Dr_WillisMoat:  mencoder faq   perhaps...10:22

AtomicAnyone use PDAnet for Android on Ubuntu?10:27

Atomicikonia Tether my Android phone to Ubuntu10:32
ikoniaAtomic: interesting10:33
boumaikonia: so i have to edit smb.conf ? i cant just right click on a folder or use a gui??10:33
ikoniabouma: you can use the "share" option in the gui10:33
boumaikonia: can i just mount a one off share, without editing fstab ?10:33
Atomicikonia Yeah, it would work with bluetooth but I have the G1 and it doesn't have Android 2.0.10:33
ikoniabouma: sure, fstab is used for mounting shares on your "linux" client, I thought you wanted windows to mount it ?10:33
jimlovell777Atomic: Let me guess the two never pair? Ubuntu doesn't seem to like an ad-hoc network with PDANet, I've tried on an iPhone. It can be done with some work though.10:34
zetherooikonia: I found another command on an Ubuntu forum that supposedly shows the logged in users ... top -b -n 1|tail -n +8|awk '{print $2}'|sort|uniq10:34
SamuelPetersonI'm currently having boot issues. It wont do anything past the splash screen except give me a blank screen and I somehow managed to make recovery mode for the latest kernel work... When I run the kernel in debug mode, I end up with a command line interface with (initramfs) where USER@Host should be.10:34
ikoniazetheroo: I won't use top to show users10:34
zetherooikonia; one of the listed is mythtv and I am in the mythtv group ...10:34
boumaikonia: right, but the links you gave me, didnt clearly distinguish between sharing to other windows clients from a linux box and accessing a windows share from a linux box10:34
boumaikonia: so i thought i might have to add the windows share to fstab so that it would be perm mounted10:35
ikoniabouma: so do you want to access a linux share from a windows machine, or access a linux share from a windows machine ?10:35
boumaikonia: where is this share gui? i cant see it10:35
Dolkmy video which is an .avi i play on my TV off a CD is COMPLETELY out of sync, I have downloaded and installed mencoder, I use ubuntu 9.10 what do i need to do to fix the constant out-of-sync issue?10:35
Atomicjimlovell777: Not positive. I hadn't tried it because PDAnet works automatically with Vista. There is no software that I could find for Ubuntu to do it.10:35
random__bouma, you dont need samba10:35
boumaikonia: i want to share a dir without any credentials from my linux box so that a windows machine can see it on the lan10:36
boumarandom__: ok so what should i do then?10:36
jimlovell777Atomic: You don't need software per se but you do need to tweak network settings on the Ubuntu machine for it to work.10:36
random__bouma, you want to take stuff form nix and put it to win?10:36
boumarandom__: i want to make a dir on this linux box avail to a windows machine10:36
random__bouma,  what windows do you have on the machine?10:37
boumarandom__: xp10:37
Dr_Willisbouma:  Right click on the directory, try the 'share' menu item yet?10:37
ikoniabouma: ok - I've not got a gnome desktop infront of me to guide correctly, but there should be either a right click option on a directory to "share" or in the places drop down menu at th etop of your machine there should be a share option10:37
boumarandom__: pls dont suggest ftp or something. it would be nice to just have it accessible from xp as a windows share10:37
random__bouma, as far as i got was addind or taken files of a linux directory, i dont think win can pickup on the linux machine least mine dont.10:37
Dr_WillisIn theory you can just RIGHT CLICK on a directory and 'share' it with a few clicks.. and windows should see it10:38
ikoniarandom__: windows and linux can share files just fine10:38
Dr_WillisIt might need to install a few packages.10:38
Dr_Willisbut it seems this advice is getting overlooked. :)10:38
boumaDr_Willis: thanks, i didnt see it cause its not avail for a drive in the "computer" view only for a proper dir path view in nautilus. thanks10:38
random__ikonia, yea i do it, but idk making a share for linux , i made a share on win for linux tho.10:39
Dr_Willisbouma:  corredt. you share a directory your USER has proper access to. not a 'system' dir or drive10:39
Atomicjimlovell777: So it's possible then? Cool. I'll see if I can dig up more.10:39

boumaDr_Willis: thanks, the rightclick thing was exactly what i needed, i just didnt see it cause i tried to share the drive from the "computer" nautilus view.10:39
jimlovell777Yes it is possible, it's even possible with PDANet but that's probably more than you want to get into.10:39

grobda24I'm in Karmic. What is the correct way to upgrade to Xorg server 1.7. It is not in the packages .. only in Lucid packages.12:23
IdleOneuse duct tape and draw a line down the middle of the room, tell each one of them to stay on their own side :)12:24
IdleOnethey won't be able to touch each other that way12:24

grobda24royk, to Lucid ? I was looking for the setting to change. Is it in system -> admin - update manager ?12:25
Dr_WillisLucid is still a work in pogress...12:26
Dr_Willisbut it is working decently well for me on my Netbook12:26

Dr_Willisjo-erlend:  with enough complaints they can changeit back :)12:32
Dr_WillisGangrel:  you can 'mount' it via editing the fstab with a proper command.12:32
* grobda24 got it "update-manager -d" :P12:33
* Dr_Willis thinks people use the term 'auto mount' way too much :)12:33
jo-erlendDr_Willis, I'm not sure... They seem really stubborn about making the fancy changes now. I don't think users mean much anymore.12:33
GangrelDr_Willis, yeah b
