ubottugaurav: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP300:03

hetaumaon nautilus00:04
bigtom21485but after i force it to run at full freq. manually it goes back to half freq. after a few minutes or if i open another application it decides it doesnt need that much computing power00:04
bigtom21485i need to know how to force it do what its told not what it wants00:04
ZykoticK9abstrakt, Handbrake doesn't do AVI anymore (it used to), you might want to have a look at winff (but due to a current bug it can't do mp4 with AAC audio)00:04

greezmunkeyabstrakt, there is such a tool, can't think of the name now though :(00:05
erUSULabstrakt: yes00:05
abstrakterUSUL, i actually am trying to get ffserver to work00:05
ZykoticK9abstrakt, winff is a gui frontend to ffmpeg - it's really ffmpeg with the AAC bug00:05
Superbestwhat is a keepass2.x compatible password manager?00:05

bigtom21485urs13: what do you mean a curb bit? pardon my enthusiasm...in vista, windows scaling controller didnt do anything at all.  at least with this i get something :-)00:05
abstrakterUSUL, i got ffserver running, and i just tried to send a video to the ffserver feed using ffmpeg but i got "Unsupported codec for output stream" http://ffmpeg.pastebin.com/XxVpmb9p00:06
erUSULbigtom21485: stick that in /etc/rc.local (without the sudo)00:06
usr13bigtom21485: Was only teasing.  sorry.00:06
usr13bad joke00:06
ZykoticK9abstrakt, that's the AAC bug00:06
abstrakterUSUL, and i'm assuming it's obviously cuz the video i tried to send has a different codec than what ffserver is expecting00:06
bigtom21485erUSUL: how do i do that?00:06
ibuclawbigtom21485, tbh, the CPU will spend 90% of it's uptime life in idle mode - and force changing that may not be what you want.00:06
erUSULabstrakt: to get mp3 support you have to install libmame00:06
abstraktmame eh?00:06

gauravwhat is my root password i nver set it how to get in that00:07
erUSUL!root | gaurav00:07
ubottugaurav: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo00:07

abstrakterUSUL, but the video i just tried to send with ffmpeg is as i said mp2 audio and mpeg1video video00:11

gauravi check waht setting i used help me ibuclaw00:11
ibuclawbarcode, the window manager?00:11
abstrakterUSUL, yeah i figured, so i should use ffmpeg to do that conversion?00:11
barcodeibuclaw yes sir00:11
abstrakterUSUL, can you give me an example command line invocation to do that?00:11
erUSULabstrakt: yeah why not00:11
abstrakterUSUL, well i don't know why not, which is why i ask :)00:12
ibuclawbarcode, iirc, the packages you need removing are: netbook-launcher, maximus and mutter/clutter.00:12

abstrakterUSUL, ok thanks00:13
erUSULabstrakt: i dunno if the video codec name is correct see the output of ffmpeg -formats00:13
ibuclawbarcode, then replace them with: gnome-panel, metacity, compiz00:13
barcodeibuclaw instead of removing them is there a way i can "switch" from the original gnome to UNR and back?00:13

noobtasticHey all, I am in need of help finding a way to manually control fan speeds on my Dell Inspiron 1545. My fans won't run at all when Ubuntu loads, which is causing correspondingly high CPU temps (50-60C). However, the fans will run when I first power the laptop on, but right after POSTing and when Ubuntu begins to load they all shut off. I have tried using Gkrellm with the Dell I8k plugin, I8kmon on its own, and have tried googling a sol00:24
noobtasticution to this problem without success. My BIOS does not offer options to alter fan speeds, but it does offer an option to force the CPU to run on low performance settings - which I have used in an effort to stem high temps.00:24
noobtasticMy CPU is an Intel Centrino 2 P8700 at 2.53 GHz. All settings are stock (no overclocks of any kind, rather, I have underclocked it). I am running Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit.00:24
FloodBot4noobtastic: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.00:24
DrDankno such option --replace00:25

zetherooacicula: that is not the issue ... updates come in when you manually request them ... the issue is with being notified that there are avaialble updates automatically00:42

lucid_intervalrpgsimmaster: that should not have happened, and sounds as strange to me as it does to you. It could be a coincidence, with some hardware / kernel error occurring at the same time.

erUSUL!fakeraid | hgri89100:44
ubottuhgri891: Tips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto00:44
rpgsimmasterNickalai, lucid_interval: I suspect my occassional freezes occur as a result of corrupted graphics memory in my system somewhere... but that still doesn't explain the inability to boot00:45
hgri891A client of mine has a computer assembled by NEC and they have set up the 2 500 gig hard drives into a raid and it is now broken, i looked online and found that it could have been caused by an external hard drive being plugged in before the machine was started so the raid controler tries to use the external hard drive as part of the raid and ignore the internal one which of couse lead to a failed raid00:45
hgri891now when the drive is unplugged the reaid does not repair00:45
Nickalaino it definitly doesnt00:45
lucid_intervalrpgsimmaster: also correct. I misread your orig post. Ability to REBOOT should not be affected. Only changes to installed kernel(s), bootloader and/or other (rare) low-levelc hanges, such as busybox, init, libc should affect ability to reboot.00:45
hgri891is there a way to gue this raid back together with ubuntu software raid00:45
zetherooacicula: Update Manager works when it's manually triggered to fetch updates ... that is fine ... but I have never gotten a notification telling me that updates are available ... as I did in previous releases of Ubuntu00:45
hgri891it is a stripe raid00:46
rpgsimmasterThe only hard drive writes that were happening were packages being saved to the hard drive... which makes this whole situation very weird00:46
rpgsimmasternvm, I'll start by mounting the Wubi partition, and seeing what I've ended up with00:46
aciculazetheroo: is it set to automatically install updates?00:47
aciculazetheroo: does running apt-get upgrade result in packages being suggested for installation?00:47
lucid_intervalrpgsimmaster: the only thing that comes to my feeble mind is th epossibility that some low-level graphics driver is grabbing the PCI/PCI-E bus and a "warm" reboot does not reset that. Can you (i know it takes a long time) try to differentiate between warm reboot and cold reboot (turn off, pull power cord out and try again)?00:47
LADmaticCAis there a way to see my own avatar in a pidgin conversation window?00:47

kostkonzetheroo, yes, now the update manager window pops up once a week for regular updates or every time there are secuirty updates. and there isn't a tray icon anymore.00:51
zetherookostkon: oh ok ...00:51
rpgsimmasterlucid_interval: any idea why my wubi disks file, and the disks folder might be pulling arbitrary vanishing acts?00:51
zetherookostkon: that would make sense ... I probably get around to manually checking for updates before the scheduled weekly time came00:52

Ceidru_GothlyHullo, Ubuntu-people. I am setting up a new machine under 8.04 and I'm trying to get it to share a few folders with anther running 9.10. Both are 32-bit and on the same network. I've tried the SMB approach as the 9.10 was already set up to talk to a windows box on the network, but the 8.04 seems unable to get the shares list. I also tried ssh but the 8.04 tries for a half-minute and then reports a timeout.00:52
phillw_hgri89, as we have no idea of how the RAID was put together, your 1st port of call will be NEC00:52
zetherookostkon: no worriers ... that is what I was wondering ... if something like that changed ... ;)00:52

phillw_dlynes, pre-seeding ?00:57
boscopusr13: sure00:58
usr13boscop: Try a different USB port.00:58
xivenThis may turn out to be a stupid question, however...I would like to remove a package using apt-get. However, when I try to do so, it prompts for the removal of a related package. Is there a directive I can use to instruct the aptitude system to remove ONLY the package I am specifying?00:58
dlynesphillw_, yeah00:58
xivenThe package to remove is usplash-ubuntustudio-theme, but it always wants to remove ubuntustudio-desktop.00:58
dlynesphillw_, to automate the install00:59
boscopusr13: didn't help!00:59
Ceidru_GothlyThe desktop thing is usually just a meta-package.00:59
dlynesphillw_, i'm guessing you've never done preseeding, if you're asking that?00:59
usr13boscop: What type of device is it?00:59
dlynesphillw_, it's like kickstart files, but you can fine tune it more than kickstart files00:59
boscopusr13: a simple 1 GB flash drive01:00
phillw_dlynes, if u pop over to #ubuntu-beginners  it's a) quieter b) more of us than questions01:00
xivenWell still, is there a way to tell it remove ONLY the specified package?01:00
PredakingI have 3 questions. What's the best way to get a vnc server to startup with ubuntu? NFS mounts in fstab sometimes don't mount unless I type mount -a. This is not ideal. What's the best way to correct this? I use nvidia drivers. The resolution resets upon reboot. I use nvidia control panel to get things setup correctly. Copy the configuration to my xorg.conf file but it still resets the resolution on reboot. Any ideas why?01:00
xivenI wouldn't even be removing it, if it would display correctly.01:00
usr13boscop: make & model?01:00
xivenIn fact, hold up..maybe the ubuntustudio developers can help me out with that.01:00
boscopusr13: no info on it about that, I got it from a company01:01
hgri891im there now01:01
hgri891sorry pigin had a hicough with the ammount of rooms in the list01:01
usr13boscop: lsusb01:01
phillw_dlynes, you can configure up the installation system anyway you want - this is used for sys-adminisatrators, but you have noe said how you want the script doing for you circunmstance.01:02

haakon__The best way I can think of, if you need to take ownership of a file at least.01:14

AaronneyerHey guys, does anyone think they can help me out with a problem I'm having installing Ubuntu?01:15
dlvrDoes anyone know of a screen saver, or an alternate method, to switch workspaces at a set interval?01:16
haakon__The most likely reason would be that you're not the owner of the file. Root however can change the owner of any file, so in order to take control of a file you don't own, you have to elevate to root first. Graphically, you can just use nautilus, run it from a terminal or from <alt> + F2 with the line "gksudo nautilus"01:16
cafuegoGuest69794: If you need to be the owner of a file on a windows file system you'll need to play with the mount options for that partition. usually set the gid and fmask/dmask options.01:16

bigtom21485guest 69794: how do i get my cpu to run at 2GHz all the time?  i have athe ubuntu freq applet on my panel, and it has an option for running 2GHz, but it ignores my command to do so, and even in performance it doesnt go there very often which aggrivates me because i dont want a 1ghz computer i want a 2ghz computer01:17
haakon__for launching nautilus in sudo mode? sudo nautilus. Otherwise, as cafuego has mentioned, you can use sudo chown username filename01:18
jastorhaakon__: GNOME! openjdk ... python ..  xbmc .. various other stuff01:18
AaronneyerAnyone think they can help me out?  Here's my issue.01:18
AaronneyerI downloaded Ubuntu, burned it on a disc, and then installed it within windows.  It gets through fine and then it gets to where it needs to restart.  I restart, select Ubuntu from the OS's, and after a bit of text and the Ubuntu symbol, I get a black screen.01:18
xivenBlue1, all you need to do is boot up using a live cd, use the shell to mount the parition with ubunty and run update-grub on it01:18
jastorhaakon__: i know theese programs doesnt require the package im trying to uninstall :) because they worked perfectly fine before that ..01:18
haakon__If it's in a windows partition (NTFS) you'd have to change your mount options, which I don't know how to do.01:18

Blue1xiven: ahh sounds easy01:18
xivenAlthough, you may need to run grub-install on the windows partition so it is in the MBR.01:18

boscopI want to make two partitions on my usb pen drive. what should I choose in gparted for format table? msdos? aix? bsd? it should get detected on win + linux01:28
Guest69794bigtom install hardware drivers (jockey-gtk) and hardware drivers (jockey-kde)01:28
jastorboscop: fat3201:29
jastorboscop: well .. you could choose ntfs .. but some pendrives mess up then01:29
boscopjastor: there is no option for that01:29
rjbhi my hdd seems death, i can't see any partition, any way to recover data?01:29
haakon__boscop: Go with FAT32 unless you need to have files >4gb on there.01:30
boscoponly those mentioned before + amiga, dvh, gpt, mac01:30
jastorrjb: dead how -.. physical? mft? partiton gone wrong?01:30
abstrakthaakon__, real tetris with actual graphics is even better :)01:30

bigtom21485jockey gtk was already installed which i found peculiar. im installing jockey-kde now.01:31
jastorrjb: depending on the extent of the damage .. yes and no01:31
rjbjastor: before boot makes some maxtor hdd makes some beeps01:31
haakon__In a way, but if you're trying to get some ridiculous prolog AI working, you're spending some 30 minutes C-v/M-v'ing the damned thing, and finally figure it out, then you don't really have the energy to do anything else than M-x tetris.01:31
=== i is now known as Guest95097
haakon__Also, I live inside terminals these days.01:31
boscopshould I go with msdos (the default)?01:31
bigtom21485guest 69794: jockey gtk was already installed which i found peculiar. im installing jockey-kde now.01:31
stovicekboscop, choose msdos for the table01:31
Guest95097can some help me01:31
haakon__Most likely msdos is the best one.01:31
Guest69794bigtom, it was on mine too.  just making sure.01:31
rjbjastor: what should i try? i have important information there01:31
abstrakthaakon__, because moving the mouse down to my launch bar to launch it is SOO much harder than M-x tetris </sarcasm>01:32
haakon__If you're not running an Xorg server, it actually is... ;)01:32
abstrakttetris kinda blows anyway these days compared to what's available for video games01:32
bigtom21485guest69794: its taking forever so i hope this is it :-)01:32

orb01Hey, after installing timidity I get notifications that my soundcard HDA Intel stopped working, and I don't get any sound anymore.. How do I solve this?01:32
bigtom21485abstrakt: unless you have a console then you have sveral other choices if you have extra brain cells that you can sacrafice01:33
haakon__You use vim, you're in no position to talk about dark ages.01:33
Guest69794bigtom, no worries, it has a lot of drivers along with the ones you may need.01:33

abstraktconsole ftw, but console only for workstation = fail01:33
pwebster25Don't want to bug.  Did anyone have any ideas on my Evolution question earlier?01:33
abstraktin more cases than not anyway01:33
haakon__Seriously though, if I want 30 minutes to waste, I might as well play emacs tetris as anything else.01:33
fabio333orb01: killall pulseaudio01:34
haakon__Console for Emacs is pretty much all I need.01:34
abstrakthaakon__, well it's your life to waste :P01:34
jastorrjb: ok .. do you have any other harddrive on it with a system you can boot from? .. or any other computer you can do stuff on taht wont interfere with the damaged drive?01:34
haakon__Prolog doesn't have any fancy IDEs anyway.01:34
jastorrjb: if its a ntfs/fat32 drive id just download something like hirens bootcd01:34
haakon__It's not as popular as say... Java.01:34
orb01fabio333: it says no process found01:34

haakon__Then again, Abstrakt, I don't spend my entire life inside a tty anyway.01:35
jastorrjb: ok01:35
bigtom21485haakon_: what is a tty?01:35
haakon__I usually use Tty2 for work, and have Tty7 as an xserver.01:35
abstrakthaakon__, neither do i... i spend most of it inside either GNOME or explorer.exe01:35
Guest69794bigtom what percent is your download at?01:35

gamerif you install ubuntu with the alternate install CD and choose total disk encryption, does it erase (or at least fill with 0's) all the data on the HDD?01:36
rjbjastor: how can i see other disk's data?01:36
haakon__It's basically terminal only.01:36
abstraktwell anyway, i just setup a streaming video server with ffmpeg today...01:36
* abstrakt is quite proud of himself01:36
bigtom21485so does it disable the GUI (GNOME) or does it just make it invisible until im done with code? and why wouldnt i just open a terminal window?01:36
haakon__It's a personal taste type of thing. For those of all who are stone-ageish like me.01:37
jastorrjb: looking to see if theres any decent program01:37
rjbjastor: i made fdisk -l and i only see 1 disk01:37
xivenWell, if removing the usplash theme broke packages, wouldn't apt-get check report/fix it?01:37

nzqrcthanks emanon01:48
haakon87dbook, you likely don't own the target folder.01:48
entropiusgah, silly java client. I have a possibly retarded question.01:49
haakon87If you want to do it by GUI, press alt+F2 and type in "gksudo nautilus" and do it from there.01:49
haakon87then you'll run it as root and you can do ANYTHING.01:49
entropiusI use ubuntu on multiple systems without a problem, but my mother (living in another state) just had a major Windows meltdown, and I had her install Ubuntu.01:49
dbook82haakon87 how can i change that, i'm the owner, like owner-owner01:49
Guest69794I have to go... GL bigtom!01:49
haakon87No, root is the owner.01:49
haakon87You're just one of the lucky people who can become root by sudoing.01:50
entropiusWhen she attempts to install multiple different packages (I had her try ubuntu-restricted-extras and openssh) she gets an "unable to find package" error. (Been doing phone support with her).01:50
entropiusI don't know how to figure out what is wrong without sshing to the computer, and I can't do that since she can't get openssh-server.01:50
haakon87You really don't want to change it so that you're the owner owner instead of root, but the way to do it is to right click the folder and use the properties tab.01:50
bigtom21485Guest69794: its done and it still wont work01:50
entropiusAny quick ideas what's wrong?01:50
haakon87That's enough rope to hang yourself with, so be careful. ;)01:50
bigtom21485guest69794: thanks01:51
dbook82haakon87 lol, tried that but it still wouldn't let me. so gksudo nautilus?01:51
haakon87Yeah. That way, you'll run as the highest owner of the system.01:51

haakon87You typed your password right?01:53
haakon87And you use GNOME?01:53
haakon87And thus nautilus as your file manager?01:53
dbook82yes ubuntu 9.1001:54
haakon87Then after entering your password, nautilus opened up?01:54
haakon87displaying the folder /root?01:54
haakon87did you type your password correctly?01:54
Dr_Williscompiz has a feature to show what apps are running as root. it can append 'root' in the title :)01:54
Dr_Williswhich is handy01:54
dbook82as far as i know, it didn't say incorrect password01:54
haakon87It won't, most likely...01:55
haakon87Try to run it again, if there's no prompt, then you've typed the password correctly01:55

jolarenmat815: I'm totally out of ideas02:15
mat815jolaren, try "man kill" for a better explanation02:15
iAcceptedif that's what browser your using.02:15
haakon87"sudo cp ~/<filename> /usr/share/gtksourceview-2.0/language-specs/<filename>" Is what you need to use, and you off course have to substitude <filename> for the filename... ;)02:16
haakon87It worked?02:16
gbear14275rastasean, I'd like to be able to configure a network bridge through gui...  looks like the newer virt-manager packages might have that capability but it seems like ubuntu never updates the package...  and I've tried finding ppa's that work but can't seem to get them working.  I guess my ideal fix would be if someone could either a) point me at a gui that is better than virt-manager or b) point me ot a ppa that will enable 02:16

haakon87You can just use the terminal.02:17
haakon87It's a lot quicker.02:17
mat815jolaren, how are you finding the process id02:17
jolarenmat815: ps -a02:17
CAPcapardchoille, anyways even after installing xfce, removing gnome, and reintalling all of the regular ubuntu-desktop I still didnt have my borders back. basically looked harder for some solutions and "determined" that metacity wasnt launching. so i added it to my startup applications manually and now i have my window decorations back (close maximize minimize and title bar etc).02:17

CAPcapardchoille, but now this is happening02:18
haakon87But yeah, dbook, you should be able to find it in synaptic.02:18
dbook82would that be something like sudo apt-get gksudo?02:18
steven_iAccepted: how do i get the plug in02:18

haakon87No, we're all just bots trying to pass the Turing test.02:42
wgrantubuntu: np02:42
mat815jolaren: pts/1 does not sound like it is a program itself, it is more like a thread or a connection that may be associated with newcs try 'ps a for a better listing'02:43

haakon87by using alien, sure.02:43
kocmodpomwgrant: I am getting an invalid operation error02:43
wgrantmat815: 'pts/1' is the first open virtual terminal -- normally a gnome-terminal instance.02:43
wgrantkocmodpom: What is the exact text of the error message?02:43
wgrantnfm: Not really. Why?02:43
nfmYou can't just install rpm and go?02:43
enyawixis miro still working in ubuntu?02:44
nfmI was just curious. :)02:44
haakon87You *can* use alien and make rpm into a deb.02:44
kocmodpomwgrant: kocmodpom@kocmodpom-laptop:~/Downloads$ sudo apt-get libfftw3-dev02:44

wgrantkocmodpom: apt-get install libfftw3-dev02:44
nfmOk, thanks.02:44
kocmodpomwgrant: doh!02:44
wgrantnfm: As haakon87 says, you can use alien to convert an rpm into a deb, but it is strongly discouraged.02:44
wgrantnfm: Installing with rpm directly is a recipe for endless sorrow.02:44
haakon87calculating the sorrow for alien however, is merely np-complete.02:45
wgrantIndeed :(02:45
nfm@wgrant How much sorrow are talking? What's the worst that could happen? :P02:45
haakon87You know murphy's law?02:46
ultraparadigmOk,  Boxee = Fail!02:46
haakon87You're tempting it nfm, and that's not a good thing.02:46
nfmOk, I'm curiouser now than ever! I'm firing up a live cd and seeing what happens...02:47
ultraparadigmBoxee wouldn't run in windows, I figured, well the OS is crap and nothing works right anyway, but now it doesn't work in my Ubuntu either and nearly everything else works, even windows programs, and boxee still doesn't work.02:47
haakon87But if you really, absolutely must have something, and it's not available as a deb, or as source, then you can use alien. But most likely the package won't install properly and you have to spend some manner of time running around in a massive terminal FUBAR and removeing stuff by hand.02:47
wgrantnfm: In most cases packages will fail to install. In other cases they will overwrite things and make your computer explode.02:47
wgrantWell, not quite, but close.02:47
ultraparadigmI've never had a native program not run in Linux before.  Boxee = FAIL02:47
haakon87Not really explode, just force you to have fun with a recovery shell because rpm just got root and decided to add random stuff to things.02:47

giacomo_cwell what im saying is, it's probably something with having a program running that relies on compiz while trying to run a 3d fullscreen game.03:11
giacomo_ci'll just close gnome-do when i want to play full screen games, that'll work03:11
soreaugiacomo_c: That is improvement in the linux graphics drivers03:11
giacomo_cwhat do you mean?  from back  a few years ago?03:12
giacomo_ci agree :)03:12
haakon87Personally I'm less than impressed that a simple app can break graphics that easily.03:13
haakon87But then again, that'll get fixed, and at least nobody is trying to hide what doesn't work.03:13
giacomo_chow long have you been running linux haakon87?03:13
haakon87Since 200703:14
soreauMore impressing I think, is that it all happens for free right before your eyes03:14
giacomo_cyeah, it's so much better than it used to be03:14
dbook82ok new issue, my rhythmboxisn't letting me read or burn cds, am i missing something required?03:14
haakon87soreau: I appreciate the free as in speech more than the beer thingy.03:14
haakon87dbook82, insert an audio cd and mount it, and see what happens.03:15
haakon87Might just be that your system doesn't automount cds.03:15
dbook82how do i mount?03:15
haakon87Open nautilus and click on the cdrom icon.03:15
wgranthaakon87: Direct rendering is hard.03:15
wgranthaakon87: But almost solved now.03:15
haakon87What do you mean almost solved? IIRC, Nvidia replace the bottom 3rd of xorg to get DRM working.æ03:16
vicsarhello all. i need help making my "Logitech Precision" game pad work in Ubuntu. Any volunteers?03:16
dbook82ok there is no cd rom icon i can find03:16
wgranthaakon87: The reasonably mature free 3D drivers (for Intel and ATI) have DRI2, which allows redirected direct rendering.03:16
haakon87But if Xorg gets that stuff working properly without Nvidia ra... consensual love to make it work, all the better.03:16
wgranthaakon87: Intel from Karmic, and ATI from Lucid.03:16
=== darkyy is now known as Darkyyy
wgranthaakon87: Which means that 3D applications run inside Compiz properly, like with NVIDIA, but without replacing the DRI stack.03:17

dyekAfter a linux kernel package build with "AUTOBUILD=1 NOEXTRAS=1 fakeroot debian/rules binary-generic", the config file will be in debian/linux-image-<version>-generic/boot/config-<version>-generic. However, if the build didn't complete successfully, is there another copy of config file which will be copied to the location indicated earlier?

gbear14275Boondoklife: it is :-/03:41
guillehow do i get ubuntu to detect my monitor resolutions ??03:41
Boondoklifegbear14275: I would just backup anything you are worried about while it is still reading just incase and then just reload with a livecd.03:41
haakon87guille, there should be a tool through the X-server settings program.03:42
haakon87At least the nvidia proprietary drivers have that.03:42

guilleyes i have03:45
Darkyyyk thanks03:45
ZykoticK9will__, i've never dug that deep into themes, hopefully someone else has an answer.  But i think emerald will only do the title bar decoration, so perhaps it's what you are looking for.  Why not try it and see?  although, again emerald should be avoided if possible.03:45
iAccepteddarkyyy: do what haakon7 said ^^03:45
Boondoklifegbear14275: hopefully it is something small like a bad block that caused a minor error that can be fixed.03:45
haakon87Or you can search it from the software center.03:45

itheosis it fine?04:14
pwnkillercoomand not found brb04:14
zoidfarb@viscar, try lspci , maybe04:14
meowsushaakon87, So it's either use flash in Wine or just a text editor?04:14
theadminalkisg: "linux-image-2.6.31-20-generic" - don't want this one, i don't really wanna to upgrade kernels04:14
ZykoticK9!backtrack | nopolen04:14
ubottunopolen: There are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mintsupport), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), CrunchBang (support in #crunchbang), BackTrack (support in #backtrack-linux)04:14
haakon87For development?04:14
zoidfarb@viscar, or also, plug it in and then run $dmesg | tail04:14
haakon87I'd go with Virtualbox and a Windows XP license, myself, but yes.04:14
zoidfarbviscar, and see iif it's being detected04:14
haakon87And Emacs is slightly more than a mere text editor... It can be used for anything. It'll run the X-Server in the end.04:15
haakon87However, nobody likes flash, so nobody wants to make something for it.. :(04:15
haakon87Off course, eclipse is an option.04:16
alkisgtheadmin: linux-image-generic is how the system is offering you new kernels. You could install an older version of it, but if you're really really sure that you never want to get a newer kernel, you can just do: sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.31-14-generic. That will mark it as manually installed, so that it doesn't get autoremoved.04:16
meowsushaakon87, yeah, i'm trying to do actual animation with it04:16
nejiZykoticK9, Hey so i got this text thing open up. npviewer am i correct so far?04:16

haakon87MobiusJedi: What do you want?04:24
ZykoticK9MobiusJedi, why do you need root?04:24
jewrooti need root too04:24
haakon87sudo <command> makes that command run as root.04:24
jewrootgive me root on xubuntu please04:24
MobiusJedioh let me tell you. . .04:24
jewrootit says i need invitation =/04:24
haakon87sudo bash gives you a root shell.04:25
MobiusJedimy system won't boot up04:25
theadminhaakon87: sudo bash is a fracking bad idea.04:25
zoidfarbDoes anyone know anything about installing packages to other partitions?04:25
jewrootmy kernel failed to boot04:25
jewrootwat do04:25
theadminhaakon87: Use "sudo -i", not "sudo bash" as haakon87 said04:25
MobiusJediso, I'm attempting to edit etc/passwd file (backed up) to remove the user i just added04:25
zoidfarb"sudo su"04:25
MobiusJedicuz that was the last thing i did before it stopped booting04:25
zoidfarbwill give you a root prompt04:25
haakon87theadmin: If he wants to have root, then he should be told the truth. I'm a firm believer in "Enough rope to hang yourself with".04:25
ZykoticK9zoidfarb, i'm afraid that's a non-trivial thing to do, it's probably possible - but not worth the effort04:25
alkisgzoidfarb: you can mount another partition in a part of your file system. E.g. you could mount /home in another partition, or /usr or anything else. You don't need to do this on a per-package basis... You could also resize your partition.04:26
ZykoticK9zoidfarb, don't give that direction to people, it isn't supported in the channel04:26
slackstertheadmin: "upgrade-full" is apparently wrong syntax, how can I do similar?04:26
haakon87MobiousJedi: does the recovery shell work?04:26
wgranthaakon87, zoidfarb: Please recommend 'sudo -i', and not 'sudo su' or 'sudo bash' or anything else like that.04:26
theadminslackster: What exactly would you like to do?04:26
wgranthaakon87, zoidfarb: But avoid recommending anything like that except as a last resort.04:27

RaiddinnI need help installing koala04:28
wgranthaakon87: No, sudo -i is the correct answer.04:28

elkyRaiddinn, however accurate this is really *NOT* the place to discuss that.04:28
MobiusJedihaakon87: the first mildly successful recovery asked me to do fsck manually, which got as far as loading the startup splash, but every time I just got a mount error for sda104:29

Raiddinnseriously though, as soon as I hit install my PC freezes when installing koala04:29
haakon87what exactly is so bad about it?04:29
alkisgzoidfarb: one way would be to move them from a live cd. But first, why are you not considering to resize your partition instead?04:30
theadminaargh, what on earth was the flash package?04:30
ZykoticK9zoidfarb, may i ask, how big is your root partition?04:30
haakon87theadmin: the flash support thingy?04:30
slackstertheadmin: no at least one of those packages is not installed04:30
haakon87ubuntu-restricted-extras have flash, mp3 and so on.04:30

Dougdoug4Hey. I'm on Ubuntu and I want to install Windows 7 over it. When I try to install Windows 7 it tells me it can only be installed over NTFS and that my filesystem or whatever is unrecognized04:31
Dougdoug4How do I fix this04:31
slackstertheadmin: linux-image-2.6.28-17-virtual is installed, I want to update to linux-image-2.6.28-18-virtual04:31
theadminzoidfarb: I don't think you can install anything on a SD card04:31
zoidfarband I want to install some non-essential apps on the SD card04:31
theadminslackster: Oh damn, i thought you have a generic image *facepalm*04:32
Raiddinnuse a win95 or win98 boot disk and Fdisk the partition doug04:32
zoidfarbtheadmin, you can boot/run your whole system from the SD if you want to. I've done it to play with alternate OSes04:32
ZykoticK9Dougdoug4, boot from a LiveCD and use gparted to delete your current install...04:32
theadminslackster: install "linux-image-virtual" and "linux-headers-virtual" then04:32
haakon87Dougdoug4: If you want to uninstall Ubuntu, just backup your personal files, and delete the partitions. This can be done with the Windows 7 install DVD.04:32
theadminzoidfarb: o_O04:32
slackstertheadmin: ok thanks04:32
haakon87You don't need a livedisc.04:32
Dougdoug4ZykoticK9, so your saying use my Ubuntu LiveCD, and delete my current Ubuntu installation with gparted04:32
Dougdoug4and ten install windows?04:32
kalmiDougdoug4, I am pretty sure you can delete the partition from the installer.... Click Advanced and Delete04:32
kalmior something like that04:33
theadminzoidfarb: Okay, i'm a noob04:33
slackstertheadmin: after that how do I grade?04:33
haakon87Dougdoug4: Windows7's installation cd have the tools you need on the installation disc,.04:33
slackstertheadmin: over the GUI it's easy..04:33
ZykoticK9Dougdoug4, against all my instincts, yes that's what i'm recommending to you04:33
theadminslackster: "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade"04:33
ae86-drifteri just changed my GFX card from an nvidia to an ATI card and i cant get it out of 'low graphics mode' i installed and enabled the ATI driver04:33
Dougdoug4wow ZykoticK9 way to call me an idiot04:33
alkisgzoidfarb: You'd better move the system partition to the 16 Gb SSD. You can copy partitions with gparted (from a live usb stick), but be careful while doing that, do a little reading first.04:33
kalmiDougdoug4, I have to agree with ZykoticK9 :/04:33
haakon87Dougdoug4, you went on an Ubuntu forum to ask for help about windows.04:33
haakon87Not to be rude but... He did help you, didn't he?04:34
Dougdoug4I went on an Ubuntu forum?04:34
Dougdoug4show me thE POST04:34
haakon87Sorry, a typo.04:34
zoidfarbthis is an ubuntu forum04:34
zoidfarbor, well, channel04:34
theadminalkisg: Correct me if i'm wrong, but how on earth can copying damage the data?04:34
Dougdoug4and I am most certainly not asking for Windows help04:34
haakon87Yes you are.04:34

Dougdoug4i am most certinaly not04:35

haakon87He probably just hit Ctrl+v one time too many.04:35

mneptokRaiddinn: corrupt disc image?04:37
haakon87Anyway Dougdoug4, you're asking how to make windows overwrite your Ubuntu partitions, this is a Windows problem. Had you asked how to make Ubuntu install over Windows, it would be an Ubuntu problem.04:37
theadminRaiddinn: A damaged disc04:37
zoidfarbalkisg, what do I do with my little 4 GB SSD then?04:37
alkisgzoidfarb: make it /home04:37
mneptokRaiddinn: m5sum it or run the media check from the boot menu04:37
theadminhaakon87: Dude. He just wants an NTFS filesystem. NOT windows.04:37
sqwertlekalmi: I would prefer one. I was hoping to find something similar to Konversation but for SMS04:37
haakon87theadmin: Nope, here's his original post: "Hey. I'm on Ubuntu and I want to install Windows 7 over it. When I try to install Windows 7 it tells me it can only be installed over NTFS and that my filesystem or whatever is unrecognized"04:38
zoidfarbtheoretically, you can install/run Ubuntu on an NTFS drive, right04:38

MobiusJediIt used to be an NTFS partition, where my windows system used to be05:10
ZykoticK9MobiusJedi, then as theadmin said you just need to install the ntfs tools05:10

Spaztic_Onekalmi: before I go about doing anything that was linked to, how much of that is for people with no sound, and for people experiencing what I described?05:16
Spaztic_OneSo far, most looks like it is for people who are not getting sound at all.05:17
dm_Is it in the repository?05:17
dm_ALso, I'm sort of looking for something to learn how to install with05:17
ZykoticK9dm_, OpenOffice of course05:17
alkisgdm_: it's preinstalled, actually. You don't see it in your menus?05:17
ZykoticK9dm_, OpenOffice is HUGE i would find something smaller to play with05:17
dm_Well, I'm on a netbook so I'm running xubuntu05:18
Loshadm_: what ZykoticK9 just said...05:18
kalmiSpaztic_One, well... dunno:) Try ALSA, that can't hurt. PulseAudio used to have a lot of funny problems.05:18
ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP305:18
theadminZykoticK9: Huge? Well... bigger then some of stuff, but huge? Meh05:18
dm_Does the size really matter?05:18
dm_Is it harder to install from a tarball for a bigger file?05:18

ZykoticK9theadmin, i can't even think of a larger package then OOo05:19
MobiusJedialkisg: that's just it tho, I used the partition editor to delete ntfs and create ext3 and a swap so i could install linux (windows needed to be installed from scratch if i wanted to use it again anyway)05:19
dm_Well, I'm trying to "unzip" it through terminal, but it isnt creating a new folder that it is unzipped to. Should I be using the zxf or a different command?05:20
Raiddinnopenoffice is written in Java, right? not C?05:20
git__is there xchat screenlet?05:20
git__or irc screenlet?05:20
theadminZykoticK9: netbeans is 237 MB big.05:20
Loshadm_: use xvzf and you can watch it unpack...05:21
ZykoticK9theadmin, netbeans - gotta find out what that is ;)05:21
alkisgMobiusJedi: ntfs doesn't have open specs, so the linux driver for it is written using reverse engineering. I wouldn't trust any non-microsoft fsck tools for it (that's why I don't use it on linux systems).05:21
theadminZykoticK9: an IDE05:21
LoshaMobiusJedi: what are you trying to do again?05:21
ZykoticK9theadmin, interesting (i'm not a developer, and thus don't feel bad for not knowing it)05:22

mtx_initGuest24245: likely an ftp server05:22
theadminGuest24245: Dropbox is slow :/ Try uploading to somewhere, best idea would be some filehost with ftp (QShare is one of those, for instance)05:23
alkisgMobiusJedi: what does the ntfs partition have to do with karmic being able to boot or not? If you have it in /etc/fstab, just comment it out...05:23
MobiusJedialkisg: so then, linux can't be trusted to delete NTFS either?05:23
LoshaMobiusJedi: it used to boot? What happened?05:23
Guest24245theadmin and qshare is fast and easy?05:23
alkisgMobiusJedi: deleting NTFS is an MBR thing, for which the specs are open.05:23
alkisgSo it's safe.05:23
Guest24245I will be sharing with someone who isnt too bright computer speaking05:23
kalmiGuest24245, never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes05:23
MobiusJediinteresting. . .05:23
theadminGuest24245: Fast... quite fast. Easy? Just register, connect to ftp.qshare.com with your name and password trough the menu, and copy the file to "uploads"05:24
LoshaGuest24245: burn it to a dvd and send the dvd...05:24
MobiusJediin file browser, sda1 properties says it's an ext3, but fsck returned the ntfs error on it05:24
theadminGuest24245: And as for downloading, it's just a link, there one has to click "Free" and "Download the file"05:24
Spaztic_Onelosha and kalmi :: I don't have either of the menus described. Kalmi, double clicking on the sound control doesn't bring anything up, and Losha, my sound config panel doesn't have that tab, or one that looks like it.05:24

dm_Okay, I used that command, and it appears that it has been unpacked, but the folder never appears05:27
MobiusJedialkisg: says sda1 is HPFS/NTFS05:27
MobiusJediLosha: you remember well. . . I had a 4ish hour break for band practice tho05:27
Loshadm_: which folder should it have unpacked into? What happens if you open a terminal and type ls -l (that's all lower case Ls)05:27
alkisgMobiusJedi: and it's supposed to be ext3 and to have karmic in it?05:27
Guest24245theadmin the qshare website isnt loading05:28
MobiusJediyeah, still has all ubuntu's system files05:28
Guest24245this isnt a good representation of their speed, sir05:28

theadminGuest24245: Where exactly are you going? it's qshare.com05:28
Guest24245theadmin yeah thats where Im going05:28
alkisgMobiusJedi: how would you know that it has the system files? Are you able to mount it?05:28
MobiusJedioops, meant to do that too: http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/tR4GgPDF05:28
Guest24245been loading for 5 minutes now and I have a really fast connection05:28
theadminGuest24245: Hm, loads in a few seconds over here usually.05:29
Guest24245try it now, if you would05:29
theadminGuest24245: Maybe a maintenace, damn them05:29
MobiusJedialkisg: i can read the partition, but can't write05:29
dm_Losha: When I type that, I see all my folders and files in my home folder. The tarball shows up, but the folder it unpacked into never does05:29
Guest24245im uploading to my own ftp05:29
Guest24245not too fast though05:29
alkisgMobiusJedi: while mounted, can you post the output of `mount` ?05:29
theadminGuest24245: Ah indeed, according to DFEOJM it's down05:29
alkisgAh, got it05:29
alkisgMobiusJedi: so, tell me if I'm right on this:05:30
Loshadm_: then either you got the unpack command wrong, or you're looking in the wrong place...05:30
Guest24245theadmin have any other alternative?05:30
Guest24245my ftp is slow as balls too. :<05:30
dm_Shouldn't it unpack into the "home" folder, or atleast the one the tar file is in?05:30
theadminGuest24245: There are a few i know, but they have too much ads on them and limit the speed05:30
=== Guest24245 is now known as aybabtu
LoshaMobiusJedi: you appear to have 3 different disks, only one of which has a linux filesystem on it (/dev/sdb)05:31
alkisgYour linux files are on /dev/sdb1, NOT on /dev/sda1. The reason you can't boot is because you're trying to boot from sda1...05:31
=== aybabtu is now known as Guest13742
alkisgMobiusJedi: on the second pastebin /dev/sda1 is *not* mounted. So you can't be seeing its files.05:31
MobiusJediwow, i've gotten my head turned around05:31
Loshaalkisg: that's how it looks to me....05:32
MobiusJedithat makes some sense05:32
skrapsmobius: dont run into anything, ;)05:32
Spaztic_Onelosha :: Thanks mate, folowing that seems to have solved it all.05:32
MobiusJediskraps: lol, thanks05:32
chrome hey kids05:33
dm_Losha: Shouldn't it unpack into the folder which the tar file is in. If not, can I point it to one specifically?05:33
LoshaSpaztic_One: here's hoping it will stay fixed. Some people have found sound fails again for no apparent reason later on...05:33
chromeI have an apple keyboard, I want the function keys to be function keys, anyone know how to do that? I want to use Fn+F11 for volume, for instance, instead of Fn+F11 for F11.05:34
Loshadm_: usually it unpacks into the current folder, but depending on how the filenames are arranged on the tarfile, they might unpack elsewhere. They may even overwrite some of your system files if they were packed incorrectly. That's another reason to 'start small'....05:34
MobiusJediok, now i'm running fsck on the correct part05:34
dinosaurvskittenI'm trying to find a simple (preferably command line) timer application that can keep track of how much time I spend on what. Ideally, all I'd have to do is type something like "start X" when I start doing X and then "stop" when I'm done. Then I'd have some log that tells me how long I spent working X, Y and Z over some time frame. Any suggestions?05:34
LoshaMobiusJedi: progress at last...05:35
MaxHRHello, I am testing a few distros for ease of use, first tested Mandriva One, as it included prop drivers and plugins on one cd, is there a similar install for ubuntu?05:35

LoshaSpaztic_One: we'll be here....05:35
chromedinosaurvskitten: doesn't sound hard to write.05:35
theadminMaxHR: Propertiary drivers are downloadable from the System - Admininstration - Hardware Drivers menu05:35
dinosaurvskittenchrome, yeah I just launched vim, I was just wondering if someone else had done it before me :p05:35
MobiusJedii know, right?05:35
chromedinosaurvskitten: I've seen time tracking apps from time to time, but I think most have a gui.05:36
theadminMaxHR: As for flash, Java and mp3 codecs... "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras" will give em to ya05:36
dante123hi all, I DESPERATELY need help.  I have just installed 9.10 and I cannot get resolution of 1440x900 to work with my Acer x193w and nvidia 9800 gtx+ although this worked under 9.04...05:36
MaxHRtheadmin: so they aren't included on the disc?  (I need all that on the media, as the computer being installed on is on dialup)05:37
chromedante123: have you installed the restricted drivers?05:37
Loshadinosaurvskitten: you could have a very simple one where 'start' is an alias for e.g. 'echo started $\* >> logfile' (I forget the exact syntax). The hard part is you have to always remember to type start and stop...05:37
MobiusJedidoes this tell anyone anything? http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/0wMYQzrt05:37
MobiusJedi(result of fsck)05:37
dante123I believe I have encountered this error before...but cant remember how I fixed it previously.....and YES chrome restricted driver is there but max resolution is not05:37
theadminMaxHR: No, it can't be on the disc cause not everyone needs it... And i've no idea how to put it on one05:37
alkisgdinosaurvskitten: e.g. `time gedit` will tell you how long that needed.05:37
chromedante123: try removing the xorg.conf and then run nvidia-settings after restarting X05:38
MaxHRtheadmin: are there any respins of ubuntu that do this?05:38
dante123I believe I added lines to the xorg.conf but cant remember and googling gets me a bunch of contradictory stuff05:38
LoshaMobiusJedi: yes, it tells me the filesystem is now fine. You should now be able to do a grub install using it....05:38
theadminMobiusJedi: It means you made a hard shutdown/reboot which corrupted the system05:38
chromesudo nvidia-settings, and don't merge the config when you save it out05:38
theadminMaxHR: Linux Mint is one of those05:38
MaxHRrighton, I will check into that, thx05:38
theadminMobiusJedi: Seems it got fixed though05:38
dante123chrome did that once and resolution is worse with only 640 x 480 and 320 something being choices05:38
alkisgMobiusJedi: cat you do: cat /media/disk/etc/fstab ?05:38
chromeLosha: haha, she could write it to .plan :D05:38
dante123should I uninstall restricted drivers first05:38
Loshachrome: ?05:39
MobiusJedimk... let's see05:39
chromeLosha: the start/stop thing.05:39
chdhow do I set my drives to automatically boot when ubuntu starts up? someone told me about fstab but I don't know how to edit it.05:39
MobiusJedialkisg: no such file or directory05:39
dante123chrome should i uninstall nvidia restricted driver first...and see if I can get 1440x900 without it first???05:40
alkisgMobiusJedi: mount the disk first, from the 'places' menu05:40
chromedante123: i don't see the point in doing that05:40
chromedante123: the hardware obviously works05:40
chromedante123: try running nvidia-xconfig05:40
Loshachrome: yes, any convenient file will do for holding the log, it's just lines of text. We'd add timestamps of course, which I forgot to do...05:40
MobiusJedialkisg: http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/5vCLrN2X05:41

MobiusJediI couldn't even guess05:42
alkisgGo ahead and try to boot it05:42
MobiusJedik, catch ya on the flipside05:42
dante123schrome shall I do this first: sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf05:42
theadmindante123: Woah, hold that, that file might be important05:42
ZykoticK9dante123, perhaps move the xorg.conf rather then delete, then run "sudo nvidia-xconfig", then run "gksuo nvidia-settings" and it should work05:43
dante123I did backj it up first05:43
Loshaalkisg: the proc is a 9.X thing. I see it in my 9.10 fstab....05:43
theadmindante123: Okay, try then. Hope you know how to get it back if X crashes ;)05:43
theadminLosha: Hm, wasn't there in 9.0405:43

ZykoticK9dante123, and do you have the resolution that you want?05:46
LasivianWhere would I find details about why my machine hangs when I shut it down?05:46
Loshatheadmin: yeah, it's just for the proc filesystem...05:46
ZykoticK9dante123, no idea then, but with my step you should now be able to save to xorg from nvidia-settings without error05:46
theadminLosha: what on earth is it05:46
dante1231360x768 is max yet this acer x193w will do 1440x900....had it doing before fresh install of 9.1005:46
Loshatheadmin: the proc interface?05:47
theadminLosha: Doesn't tell me much :D05:47
dante123I believe that originally under 9.04 I had to put sync or refresh parameters in xorg.conf as well as some modeline comment05:47
dante123but I just cant remember.....darn05:47
Loshatheadmin: it's been around for a while, it's an interface to the kernel, rigged up to look like a filesystem. Do an ls in /proc and poke around (don't write anything there though)....05:48
dante123ZykoticK9 do I need to logout or restart for any of the commands you gave me05:48
ZykoticK9dante123, no - that just fixes xorg for nvidia-settings really05:48
Loshadante123: no backup then?05:49
Spaztic_OneIs there a way to increase the area in which you can grab a window to stretch it? It is currently a single pixel wide which is a pain to try and grab.05:49
theadminLosha: That's uber-complicated for me :/ Not much with Linux, around 1.5 years05:49
veebullanybody here use TurnKey Linux appliances?05:49
ZykoticK9Spaztic_One, alt+middle_mouse_button and click drag anywhere in window05:49
Loshatheadmin: it's pretty advanced usage, don't mess around in there....05:49
dante123<ZykoticK9> okay, i ran sudo nvidia-settings then saved the configuration file....now I think I have to edit it and add mode or modeline comment...this might be starting to come back to me.05:50
ZykoticK9dante123, well i can't personally help with those settings so best of luck05:51
MobiusJedidrat. . . same error I've been getting. failure to mount filesystem05:51
ZykoticK9MobiusJedi, is your root partition really ext2?05:51
LoshaMobiusJedi: I think you missed a step. You need to do a grub (re)install....05:51
dante123let you know in a minute if it works...thanks for help anyway....i MIGHT be back05:51
MobiusJediZykoticK9: yes05:52
ZykoticK9MobiusJedi, k just checking05:52
MobiusJediLosha: yeah, i was gonna ask what to do exactly05:52
LoshaMobiusJedi: what release is it again. 9.10?05:52
LoshaZykoticK9: ext2 isn't ideal, but it shouldn't matter for these purposes....05:53
Spaztic_OneZykoticK9: I was about to say "that only stretches the bottom part, and its not anywhere, it only works when close to the bottom" when I realized that "hmm, only close to the bottom... maybe the side will make that side move: lo and behold, it does. Thanks mate.05:53
LoshaMobiusJedi: that means you have grub2. Wait a second...05:53
ubottuGRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager in Karmic. For more information and troubleshooting on GRUB2 please refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub205:53

dinosaurvskittenchrome, I ended up using "/usr/bin/time -f "%e $@" -o time_log -a read" for now :)05:55
LoshaMobiusJedi: you need to go to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub2 and follow section 7: Recover Grub 2 via LiveCD, except when they use /dev/sda1, you use /dev/sdb105:55
pwnkillerhey if i type into terminal make what should followit05:57
ZykoticK9pwnkiller, installing sourcecode?05:57
pwnkillermake + what im tying to install a program frm a tar file05:57
ZykoticK9pwnkiller, 1) ./configure 2) make 3) sudo make install05:58
theadminpwnkiller: Depends on the program. Read the included README05:58
pwnkillerjust make?05:58
pwnkilleri get an error msg05:58
Loshapwnkiller: the *exact* text of the error msg?05:58
pwnkillermake: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop05:59
theadmin...lol... I just did "cat ~/somefile | less" instead of "less ~/somefile"... I'm getting crazy with the console already05:59
theadminpwnkiller: Did you do "./configure"?05:59
theadminpwnkiller: Was it successful?05:59
Mariouxhi there05:59
MariouxI need to uninstall virtualbox, wich I installed from the deb package05:59
Mariouxanyone can help me?05:59
Loshapwnkiller: unlikely, since it didn't produce a makefile. Run configure again and paste the output to http://ubuntu.pastebin.com06:00
ZykoticK9Marine, do you get multiple entries with "dpkg -l | grep virtualbox"06:00
theadminMarioux: Sure, just sudo apt-get remove virtualbox... or was it VirtualBox...06:00
pwnkiller(libxul-unstable mozilla-plugin) were not met:06:01
pwnkillerNo package 'libxul-unstable' found06:01
pwnkillerNo package 'mozilla-plugin' found06:01
Mariouxtheadmin: I tried that... no result at all06:01
ZykoticK9theadmin, more likely virtualbox-3.106:01
Loshapwnkiller: I can't tell from just those lines if those are fatal errors, or just advisory warnings, but since you didn't get a makefile, I assume the former....06:01
Loshapwnkiller: are you trying to build mozilla?06:02
MariouxZykoticK9: no result at all with that command06:02
pwnkillerk i'll paste to the link above06:02
pwnkillerno brb06:02
ZykoticK9Marioux, then you didn't install with a DEB file i believe06:02
MobiusJediI'm confused on this step: Now you need to edit the /etc/default/grub file to fit your system06:02
jera_meeim newbie on using ubuntu06:02
MariouxZykoticK9: I've downloaded the .deb package from the sun virtualbox web page06:03
Loshapwnkiller: fine, I'll just sit here and try and guess which program you're trying to build....06:03
LoshaMobiusJedi: there's nothing you need to configure in there, just skip over that step...06:03
ZykoticK9Marioux, "apt-cache policy virtualbox-3.1" does it show as installed?06:04
jera_meemay i ask u something?06:04
Losha!ask | jera_mee06:04
ubottujera_mee: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)06:04
MariouxZykoticK9: no result at all06:05
Mariouxbut I'm seeing virtualbox running right now06:05
ZykoticK9Marioux, did you recently download this deb?  do you still have the DEB file?06:05
MobiusJediLosha: is this a problem? sed: warning: failed to get security context of /tmp/filek7Y6V6: No data availablesed: warning: failed to get security context of /tmp/fileGC2zvW: No data availableUpdating /boot/grub/menu.lst ... done06:06
pwnkillerk pasted http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/x4YhTRQa06:06
ardchoillelabyrinth1965: ok, you're here. You can ask any Ubuntu question here and hopefully someone will help you with it.06:06
MariouxZykoticK9: yes I do... its a .run archive06:06
LoshaMobiusJedi: /boot/grub/menu.lst belongs to grub1, not grub2. Which livecd did you boot?06:06
ZykoticK9Marine, that's not a deb!06:06
jera_meeanyone know how to use my integrated camera so i can take picture with it?06:06
pwnkillerintergrated cam use cheese06:07
MariouxZykoticK9: I know... I thought it was a deb package but it's a run06:07
MobiusJedi8.10, cuz that's what I have. . . are you telling me i have to track down a blank cd?06:07
ZykoticK9Marioux, then apt is totally unaware of the install!  you need to ask in #vbox how to uninstall then.06:07
Kevin_CruxHi somebody help me06:07
MariouxZykoticK9: ok thank you very much06:07
ZykoticK9Marioux, in future - use DEBs06:07
Kevin_CruxI'm new in the ubuntu OS06:07

labyrinth1965I want to put MP3 music from my sansa player in Rhythmbox is there a way to do this.06:08
pwnkillerok pasted http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/x4YhTRQa06:08
jera_meehi kevin06:08
Loshapwnkiller: see this line "error: Package requirements (libxul-unstable mozilla-plugin) were not met" -- that's a fatal error, which is why you didn't get a makefile. You need to fix that before you can proceed...06:08
macolabyrinth1965: with the sansa plugged in, it should show in the sidebar in rhythmbox. click on it and you should be able to drag songs from the sansa to your library06:08
Kevin_Cruxhi jera I need your help06:09
dante123<ZykoticK9> got it working, I had to copy some lines from my other computer that has the same monitor with 9.10......here is my xorg.conf in case u r curious06:09
dante123hang on for pastebin06:09

Kevin_Cruxwith ubuntu 9.1006:10
dante123will do thanks for help......06:10
LoshaMobiusJedi: no, I'm telling you that grub changed between 8.10 and 9.10. You *told* me you were running 9.10. The instructions for 8.10 are *different*. No wonder you haven't made much progress. Which is it?06:10
Zenkertheadmin r u there?06:10
MobiusJediLosha: sorry, I can be slow on the uptake06:10
linageedoes anyone know why lock and move are grayed out on my gnome panel on ubuntu 10.04? (how do I move things?)06:10
macoardchoille: yes06:11
Loshapwnkiller: since you won't even tell me what program you're trying to build, how am I supposed to help...06:11
pwnkillermoonshine, i'm sorry06:11
macolabyrinth1965: at least, thats how my USB-mass-storage type mp3 players work, and i believe the sansa is also a USB mass storage type player06:11
dante123http://pastebin.com/x6rb3p6v  <ZykoticK9>  I don't know which lines make it work....but I also added refresh rates from the spec page for my particular monitor06:11
dante123thanks for your help06:11
LoshaMobiusJedi: computers kinda need attention to detail ya' know... And I still don't know which version you are running....06:12
ZykoticK9dante123, it's probably the HorizSync and VertRefresh that are required06:12
harisundAnyone know a good camera server that I can use to stream images from my webcam constantly to some web page? It should be viewable even on computers that don't run Java ..06:12
linageeharisund: what do you need that for? lol06:12
dante123since it is working....should I just leave it or is there anything in there that you think is unecessary or redundant or perhaps not useful from a performance angel06:13
linageeharisund: NSFW?06:13
dante123angle I mean ZykoticK906:13
harisundlinagee: eh no .. just for fun.06:13
harisundlinagee: Home monitoring, maybe06:13
ZykoticK9dante123, i'd leave it - looks fine06:13
pwnkillerhello losha?06:13
linageeharisund: "home monitoring". is that what it's called now. lol06:13
dante123thanks nite then...nite all06:14

harisundGrow up linagee06:14
ajlsunrisei've got a question about c++06:14
* linagee is grown u06:14
Loshapwnkiller: type apt-cache search libxul and see if something suitable shows up. Same for mozilla-plugin (except there are so many plugins for mozilla, I don't know which it wants. Maybe there's something in the documentation?)06:14
MobiusJediLosha: live CD I have (using currently) is 8.10. I'm trying to fix 9.10 which won't boot06:14
Mariouxin /opt/VirtualBox theres a .sh archive06:14
Mariouxso you run cd /opt/VirtualBox06:14
ZykoticK9Marioux, nice06:14
Mariouxand the ./uninstall.sh06:15
ZykoticK9Marioux, i'd imagine you'll need sudo with that command06:15
ociugihelp! im having a problem with my samba i uninstall some program after that i got this message "Could not display "network:///"" how to fix this problem06:15
MariouxZykoticK9: yes, forgot about that06:15
LoshaMobiusJedi: not sure if it'll work, but you need to follow different instructions (fun, isn't it?) Please stand by...06:15
Losha!grub | MobiusJedi06:15
ubottuMobiusJedi: grub is the default boot manager for Ubuntu releases before Karmic (9.10). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto - See !grub2 for Karmic onwards.06:15
MobiusJediLosha: It's ALL fun!06:15
ardchoillelabyrinth1965: Did you see someone answer your question?06:15
LoshaMobiusJedi: ok, same rigmarole, only now with grub1:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub06:16
sje46well, anyways, my transmission isn't seeding, and someone told me that I should forward a port06:16
pwnkillerlosha can i pm you the readme file?06:17
sje46I didn't even know what a port was, so I look at some manuals06:17
LoshaMobiusJedi: See the section: The GUI Way: Using the Alternate/Install CD and Overwriting the Windows bootloader06:17
sje46and it says I need a static IP address?06:17
Mariouxkeep up the good work guys06:17
Mariouxcya later!06:17
=== kb is now known as Guest37637
sje46But I can't even figure out how to create a static IP address...because what I've found doesn't even work06:17
Loshapwnkiller: I s'pose so. No guarantee I'll be able to make sense of it though. Isn't there a repo version of moonshine you can install? So much less work if you can...06:18
ZykoticK9sje46, you should right now the name servers in resolv.conf "cat /etc/resolv.conf" to see them, then right click on the network icon in the panel and edit the settings for eth0 if you're using a wired connection, there is an option in there for static somewhere06:19
ajlsunrisei've got a question about c++. trying to compile source code and it gets to this line: 'cout << "hello"' and throws an error saying cout is an 'undeclared identifier'06:19
sje46zykes-, nameserver  ...also, I'm on a wireless connection06:20
indusajlsunrise, why is there a quote before cout06:20
ZenkerLosha there is no repo, i already tried this06:20
ZykoticK9ajlsunrise, perhaps you should ask in ##c++06:20
sje46ZykoticK9, that was supposed to be for you06:21
indusajlsunrise, yeah ask in #c++06:21
ZykoticK9sje46, that makes things easy then, it's your router06:21
ajlsunrisethanks. couldn't find it in the list06:21
ZykoticK9sje46, can you right click on the network icon on panel and find the settings for your wireless?06:22
sje46I'm there06:23
rabelaisis there any way to control a terminal that I don't have physical access to? (I didn't use screen on this terminal unfortunately)06:23
ZykoticK9sje46, see a IPv4 Settings tab?06:23
MobiusJediok, i'm tryin it the GUI way!06:23
sje46yes, ZykoticK906:23
ZykoticK9sje46, Method dropdown for Manual06:23
Loshapwnkiller: patience. The readme doesn't tell me much. I'm reading web pages looking for a way to install moonshine06:23
LoshaZenker: so how do people use moonshine?06:24
sje46 then I just add an IP address?  off the top of my head?06:24
bugaloohi there! I just buyed a conversor usb->ide (allows to plug an IDE harddisk on a usb port). I'm trying to make it work, but when I plug it, it recognizes the device (/dev/sdb) but it didn't recognize any partitions on harddisk. My dmesg is in http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/NHeaAS1K    if someone could take a look, thanks06:24
ZenkerLosha idk, im learning right along w pwnkiller :)06:24
Zenkeri was helping as well06:24
sje46I'm there ZykoticK906:24
ZykoticK9sje46, it will have to be a 192.168.1.X where X is the machine IP06:24
ZykoticK9sje46, netmask will be - and gateway
sje46ZykoticK9, so this IP would only apply for my laptop?06:25
Loshapwnkiller: Zenker: is this it? http://abock.org/moonshine/06:25

Spaztic_OneWhen you have a moment, and are willing to lend assistance, it would be appreciated.06:27
bugalooabhi_nav, did you get success with any hdd?06:28
ZykoticK9sje46, in a terminal try "sudo service networking restart" but it will disconnect you from IRC here!!!06:28

ZykoticK9sje46, if it doesn't work - set the network back to DHCP/automatic06:29
sje46I know it probably isn't06:29
ZenkerLosha from what im gathering it needs moonlight and 2 know where moonlight is06:29
bugalooabhi_nav, how much time for "scanning" the hdd? is it much time? like minutes or seconds?06:29

bugalooabhi_nav, but you see... it detects "anything"... did you see my dmesg paste?06:38
sje46ZykoticK9, uhhh...nopt that I know of.  The only thing I tried was change the port number for transmission06:38
ZenkerLosha thank you for helping :)06:38

bugalooabhi_nav, please: http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/NHeaAS1K06:38
ZykoticK9sje46, i'd go back into the network settings and undo the changes we made if i where you.06:38
ZenkerLosha i think he may be awk06:39
bugalooabhi_nav, it seems to detect the hdd... but not the partitions... but i'm not sure about what I should see on dmesg06:39
LoshaZenker: awk?06:39
abhi_navbugaloo: i dont know about dmsg. but tell me if your hdd is listed in /meddia06:40
bugalooabhi_nav, it isn't06:40
abhi_nav /media06:40

Zenkerlosha rofl, good job :)06:43
bugalooabhi_nav, I know... it seems to detect my hardware, but still can't mount it anywhere06:43
sje46ZykoticK9, this will change my external IP?06:43
ZykoticK9sje46, no - you can't change your external IP06:44
abhi_navbugaloo: manual mount it06:44
pwnkillerk will try06:44
* sje46 is confused. I can't?06:44
bugalooabhi_nav, how? there is no /dev/sdb1 or anything like that06:44
Spaztic_OneLosha: It was simply muted, but it is being recognized by Ubuntu, however, I am having issues getting other programs (though I have only tried one) to use it06:44

Spaztic_OneLosha and lucid_interval :: I just tried recording using the "sound recorder" app. It works there, no problem. I am going to assume something somewhere in TeamSpeak 3 is causing, or find fault somewhere.06:46
bugalooabhi_nav, ok, just a sec06:46

indusyeah the end of kernel messages with dmesg | tail06:50
bugalooalready did it06:50
lucid_intervalSpaztic_one: under that I saw the following: Telling ALSA your game only needs playback06:50
lucid_intervalNow, to enable your game to play sound you have to tell ALSA that your game will not need to record sound or anything - else ALSA will refuse to give your game the capability to play sounds, since TeamSpeak already has the rights to record, and no two programs should be able to.

dyekHi! I added a bunch of CONFIG_* that I thought was necessary for Xen DomU support in Ubuntu linux-image kernel package in debian.master/config/i386/config.flavour.generic file. After "debian/rules updateconfigs" and created the .deb package, much of those added CONFIG_* disappeared from the package's config-* file. Are they disappearing because I added it to the wrong flavor config file? Or are they simply not supported by the kernel source from the pa08:11
dyekckage? I'm getting "Error: (2, 'Invalid kernel',..." when I launch the kernel as DomU. It seems to me that it is hopeless to try to recompile the Ubuntu kernel package hoping that it will fix the Xen DomU support. Does that sound correct?08:11

alankilaJon-: if I would have to hazard a ridiculous guess, I'd bet that the applet is misprogrammed and refers to a java package with wrong capitalization of the name, but it works because win32 filesystems are case insensitive. The error, after all, is a "class not found" exception.08:29
Zenkerwgrant its a media center, its in the repo's u should check it out, im trying to fig out how 2 change the res to 1366x76808:30

Jon-alankila: You've got to be kidding me. Anyway to check this in the open Java console?08:30
wgrantI don't know how to use.08:30
alankilahowever, this might be completely wrong because it's probably a .jar, which is a .zip, and all loading in such an archive ought to go through its own implementation of filesystem. But, as I said, it's a ridiculous guess.08:30

Polterge|stI was just curious08:37
Polterge|stI would like to get my wifi radar button working in sidux because it worked by default on the ubuntu cd and I am guessing it is maybe just a lib or dependency I am missing08:38
alankilawell, the webpage will refer to the applet's jar, so it's therefore possible to download it. If you know what to do.08:38
Polterge|stmost of the same stuff that ubuntu has is in the debian repos rather08:38

OerHeksJon- it says 30-60 wait ...08:40
Jon-Polterge|st: They're fan boys. Get over it. In this case, I am on their side, but the way they bash Microsoft while banning people that say one good thing about Windows is sick.08:40

rwwJon-: I don't bash Microsoft, and Windows discussion in general is off-topic for this channel also, so...08:41
Spaztic_OneWhoever it was that asked about listing the users in a channel, you can use the command (assuming you are using an IRC client that supports it) is "/who #<channel name>" Obviously without the quotes and replacing <channel name> with the name of the channel. As a note, a channel this large might take a minute or so, possibly locking your computer up for the duration if the command.08:41
Jon-wgrant: I shouldn't be but I have seen it happen so often in the past few days to people. I will rephrase: replace "they" with "some of the ops here"08:41
Polterge|stJon-, my point is that what I am using is actual debian ... if anyone should be entitled to be a snob it would be me because my setup is much much much more difficult to setup and not as automated and in that case a bit of respect would be appreciated on their part. I was asking a simple linux question "about" ubuntu because it is a specific thing ubuntu does and I would like to know how it does it08:42
Polterge|stor which lib08:42
wgrantJon-: It depends on how inappropriate and off-topic the users were.08:42

Jon-wgrant: Well, it was basically. microsoft bashing going on, user1 says something pro windows, user1 is told to take it to ubuntu-offtopic, he mentions they are allowing the microsoft bashing, he gets banned.08:43

ikoniaJon-: if you have a problem with any of the ops, please discuss it in #ubuntu-ops, not here08:45
Polterge|stI found some ubuntu guides and will look there and solve the problem just like I did with firestarter in sidux the other day, which was related to using a newer kernel than the one in stock ubuntu because of nf_conntrack instead of using ip_conntrack which is a totally diff story08:46

TommoPuppyyeah I know that wgrant. I'm doing a computer science course at uni and i need to install linux, but since my normal computer is down and my other computer hasn't got enough hard drive space to partition i have no choice but to do a quick temporary fix on the old craptop09:45
TommoPuppybut yeah do i HAVE to install a boot loader during installation?09:45
TommoPuppyor can i do it later?09:46
wgrantTommoPuppy: Have you thought about Wubi? That will let you install Ubuntu into a file on your Windows partition.09:46
ikoniaTommoPuppy: you would be very wise to do it during the install09:46
TommoPuppyI can't ikonia09:46
TommoPuppydidn't you hear me?09:46
ubottuWubi 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.09:46
TommoPuppyThere's a problem with my laptop or my disc09:46
ikoniaTommoPuppy: ok - so then you need to get that fixed before installing as a boot loader is essential09:47
kindofabuzz!usb > TommoPuppy09:47
ubottuTommoPuppy, please see my private message09:47
TommoPuppyi barely have a flash drive big enough to use ubuntu though. If I were going to do that i'd just get DSL or puppy instead09:47
TommoPuppyin fact, i might :/ since my craptop is pretty much doomed to not having a permanent linux install on it09:48
TommoPuppybut seriously, if i try to run the 7.04 disc it doesn't even start the livecd09:48
TommoPuppyit just says "unable to mount"09:48
TommoPuppyokay, so, i've erased the laptop hard drive and isntalled half a linux installation essentially since i can't install a boot loader09:50
VigoTommoPuppy: Have you tried the Minimal? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD09:51

TommoPuppyif only this crappy computer were good enough to run a virtual machine09:53

TommoPuppymy new computer would be though. maybe i should just install Puppy on a USB drive or something?09:53
ikoniaTommoPuppy: that's up to you, we are just here to help with ubuntu issues09:53
wgrantinertial: Yes. System->Administration->Disk Utility can probably help you with that.09:53

Xixthe tools say the cache headers are being sent, but the 3.2s delay in fetching the script tells me it's not getting the cached version10:21
airtonixlao5, than what you actually mean is that "pidgin does not support file transfer without configuration"10:21
ubottuUh, don't you mean !apt ?10:21
pozicIt makes me want to throw Windows on it, since at least I know it is certified to run on it (and this is coming from someone who wants to use a *nix derivative).10:21

airtonixlao5, no because unfortunatly i have not been able to work out how to get that part working either.10:23

airtonixlao5, just out of interest what protocol are you trying to share fiels with ? xmpp or something like msn ?10:28
ikoniamadvirus420: you have to request an update of the package from the maintainers on launchpad.net10:28

ikoniamadvirus420: or ask you self if you really need this exact version10:29

airtonixlao5, i mean that since pidgin is a multi-protocol instant messenger client, you would be using a specific chat protocol...for example gmail is just xmpp.10:29

indusairtonix, well, thats not my problem11:29
itheosairtonix, i just helped him find the key thats all :)11:29
airtonixindus, it is because when providing support you don't offer obscure rarely available options11:29
Haeginzetheroo: bin isn't a packaged format, it's just a binary so the answer would be not without a wrapper of some sort11:29
indusairtonix, how is it rarely available11:30
zetherooHaegin: is there a wrapper that can do it?11:30
indusall the machines  i work with have that key exactly there11:30
Haeginzetheroo: what are you actually trying to do this for?11:30
lao5hi! can gimp add a rectangle to some part of one picture? i am going to use rectangle to circle some part of the picture.11:30
Haeginlao5: yes11:31
lao5Haegin: how? thanks11:31
indusairtonix, iam not sure what you mean here, obscure ? rarely available ? isnt the process to restart display atl-sysrq-k11:31
Haeginlao5: select the area you want using the rectangle selection tool, border the selection to how thick you want the edge of the rectangle then fill the selection using the paint tool11:31
zetherooHaegin: I am trying to install IBM Lotus Symphony on my 64bit Ubuntu machine ... I downloaded the .deb package and the howto is referring to the .bin one ...11:31
Haeginzetheroo: ok, do you have the 64bit deb?11:32
nucc1hey, i want my webserver to serve a particular folder from my home directory, but it tells me "forbidden"11:32
Haeginzetheroo: if so just run "dpkg -i <deb file>" as root11:32
zetherooHaegin: no, there is none ...11:32
Haeginnucc1: check the permissions11:32
nucc1Haegin, what permissiosn should i give it?11:32
airtonixindus, despite what your experience is that single key is not on all keyboards... and when it is you have to actually hold all those letters down to acheive the same effect11:32
Haeginzetheroo: if they only offer it in 32bit versions then you'll need a chroot11:32
airtonixindus, *when it isn't11:33
zetherooHaegin: here is the info http://symphony.lotus.com/software/lotus/symphony/help.nsf/GeneralFAQ#1511:33
Haeginnucc1: you need to make sure the user that the web server runs as can read and possibly execute the files so probably chmod g+r -R <folder> for a start11:33
indusairtonix, ok ,what would you advice then?11:33
zetherooHaegin: i am at step 4 ... however its calling for the .bin file11:33
pozicindus: I get a random black screen for no reason. It is not the screen saver. Even when I am in console mode this happens and even when I am plugged into the grid.11:33
airtonixindus, far easier method is to just tell them to save documents and log out.11:33
pozicindus: (on a laptop)11:34
indusairtonix, well if display hangs?11:34
Haeginindus: if you are going to advise using sysreq keys you need to give more explanation. Resetting the display restarts X which will kill all the open programs possibly losing unsaved work.11:34
pozicindus: it happens with acpi enabled and distabled.11:34
purple_processornucc1: you may have to ad a apache <directory> tag to your vhost.conf... symlinks work pretty well to with the floowsymlink options11:34
zetherooHaegin: sudo -H ./IBM_Lotus_Symphony_linux.bin11:34
indusah yes right Haegin jumped on that one11:34
zetherooHaegin: can I just use the .deb that I have in the place of the .bin?11:34
ecmmy wallpaper isnt working still i tried alt - k -sysrq11:34
ecmi tried restarting11:34
Haeginzetheroo: and is the deb file the one it tells you to download?11:35
nucc1purple_processor, i have the vhost configured properly, i just think it is something to do with my home folder permissions11:35
indusecm, do you see available wallpapers if you right click on desktop11:35
ecmi did but none of them work11:35
Wackler1Heagin: can't find the command that gave me the card...11:35
ecmmy monitor is 1980x108011:35
HaeginWackler1: try lspci11:35
ecmits 1080p11:35
airtonixindus, apologies for publicly bringing to your attention.11:35
Haeginecm: it might be the gconf schemas though it seems unlikely11:36
Dr_WillisI always just use a nice solid color.11:36
indusairtonix, oh no not at all , i appreciate it :)11:36
zetherooHaegin: step 4 says to download the ISMP installer .. dunno what that is ... but the command to install is referring to the .bin package/file11:36
zetherooHaegin: can I use the .deb in the place of the .bin?11:36
purple_processornucc1: try making a softlink from web root to /home folder11:37
Haeginzetheroo: what is the deb file you have? is it libxkbfile1_1.0.5-1_i386.deb ?11:37
pozicindus: anyway, what I really just want is to control the bit which says whether or not my screen should display everything in video memory on full brightness.11:37
Wackler1Haegin 3)11:37
Wackler100:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 03)11:37
zetherooHaegin: no, I am at step 4 ... I did everything else already11:37
pozicindus: that should be trivial, but in fact there is no such obvious knob.11:37
induspozic, hi ,sorry but dont know this one, could you please ask again in this channel11:37
zetherooHaegin: the .deb I have is the actual Symphony suite11:37
nucc1purple_processor, says 'forbidden' still11:38
indusall that chatter made me miss your question really11:38
Haeginzetheroo: ok, try running sudo dpkg -i <deb file>11:38
pozicI want is to control the bit which says whether or not my screen should display everything in video memory on full brightness.11:38
tjingboemi get no sound from Totem, but with Audacity it works fine. How can i tell Totem to use the soundcard?11:38
indusairtonix, are you an op ?11:38
lao5Haegin: thanks! a little horrible to me11:38
zetherooHaegin; so I should extract the .deb package ... can i extract it to anywhere?11:38
pozicindus: learn to use an IRC client if you missed it.11:38
lao5Haegin: but i dont know where to choose color.11:38
induswow great, thanks11:39
Haeginzetheroo: no, just install it11:39
airtonixindus, no just someone who has been here a while11:39
nucc1purple_processor, what possible permissions can i set on my home folder to allow the webserver access to stuff inside it, without being too permissive?11:39
Haeginlao5: use the paint tool and it'll give you colour swatches. just double click on one to change it.11:39
zetherooHaegin: oh ok ... so it does not make a diff if its .bin or .deb ... ?11:39
Haeginnucc1: try chmod a+rx to see if that works11:39
zetherooHaegin: I just don't want to break my system :)11:40
anicholsI've been trying for a few days now to get a certain USB device to work in ubuntu (hardy heron), but no amount of googling has given me a result.  Any ideas on how to make a "NYKO Airflo EX" work within Ubuntu for games played through ZSNES and the like?11:40
Haeginzetheroo: you'd need to install them differently. With a bin you run it, with a deb you use dpkg11:40
theadminnucc1: just make sure the group who owns it is same as server softawre group, and 770 it11:40
induspozic, good luck getting help with that attitude sucker11:40
Haeginanichols: what is a NYKO Airflo EX?11:40
nucc1Haegin, perfecto!11:40
purple_processornucc1: I would guess you only need read access to apache or all...11:40
nucc1theadmin, ubuntu's default home permissions deny all access into the home directory.11:40
Haeginnucc1: ok, so now it works you need to work out what permissions you need to be secure11:41
Stargazeanichols, try with usb-modeswitch, it's a daemon11:41
anicholsHaegin: It's a gamepad, similar in appearance to a PS2 controller, made for PCs, with a fan built into it to keep the hands from getting sweaty.11:41
HaeginI'm guessing you need to set the web user to be in the group that has access to the files and then make them readable to you, the group and others and writeable to you11:41
zetherooHaegin: how do you force clear a terminal window?11:41
nucc1Haegin, i can change the particular folder's owner to www-data, but without the -r flag on my home folder, it cant access at all11:41
anicholsStargaze: usb-modeswitch?11:41
Haeginzetheroo: clear11:41
Stargazeanichols, Synaptic gives a description11:42
Haeginzetheroo: or reset if you have funky characters messing it up11:42
zetherooHaegin: I did "man sudo" before and am stuck at the end of the manual11:42
Haeginnucc1: the -r flag makes it recursive so it effects the contents of the folder again11:42
Haeginzetheroo: press q to quit the man page reader11:43
nucc1Haegin, :) i meant the "read" flag for "all users"11:43
zetherooHaegin: oh thanks ... hehe11:43
nucc1Haegin, i didn't run the chmod with "-r"11:43
purple_processornucc1: Synlinks is the way to do it I think.. thats how I did it once, from memory...11:43
nucc1purple_processor, I am using virtual hosts, so symlinks don't apply.11:43
nucc1purple_processor, besides, a symlink will still run into permission issues.11:44
anicholsStargaze: I did a search on Synaptic for 'usb-modeswitch', and there are no packages available by that name...unless I'm completely screwing up how to look up something in the package manager...possible.11:44
Haeginnucc1: ok, that's because the web server runs as a user that doesn't own the file and isn't in the group that is set on the files so falls into the other category11:44
lao5Haegin: thanks again. i got it..11:44
Stargazeanichols, try searching for modeswitch, or switch11:44
nucc1Haegin, yes. and the home folder allows no access to "other" at all. that's why it was failing.11:44
Haeginlao5: no probs11:44
nucc1Haegin, so chmoding  "o+r" solves the problem.11:45
theadminnucc1: chown $USER:www-data $HOME && chmod -R 770 $HOME, something like this.11:45
anicholsStargaze: modeswitch = nothing.  switch = 272 packages....*sighs*11:45
nucc1theadmin, :) that is a bit dangerous :)11:45
theadminnucc1: Yeah kinda11:45

Stargazeanichols, i understand, i'm doing it from now on, too11:47
itheosisnt this asking?11:47
Haeginzetheroo: nah, from the instructions they want you to run it in 32bit mode using 32bit libs11:47
nucc1theadmin, lemme try making it merely "executable" by others. that should work too, i suppose?11:47

theadminn8w: Oh, then weird11:56
n8wive tried switching to "uswsusp",but no significant difference there...11:57
airtonixn8w, your swap needs to be at least 1.5 times the size of your real ram11:57
itheosairstrike, if its less than 1gb11:57
Haeginairtonix: only if you want to hibernate do you need more swap than ram11:58

airtonixitheos, note n8w just said "4gbs or ram"11:58
airtonixHaegin, yes.11:58
abhi_navi think 4gb is greater than 1 gb11:58
airtonixHaegin, n8w you need to be prepared for the situation that your swap is in use by apps11:58
itheosairstrike, i noted it. i said your rule of 1.5 or 2 times applies if the ram is under 1 gb11:58
